AJUS tar Game
Without Yankee
Amazes Fans
McCarthy Ignores Own
Men in Helping Junior
League to 5= Victory
The incredible .spectacle of an
American league all-star team with-
out a Yankee continued to amaze
fans and baseball men today as the
major leagues made ready to swing
back into their pennant races.
Until last night, when the Ameri-
can League squelched the Natiotal
League 5 to 3 in the 11th annual
dream game at Shibe Park, no one
ever had dared conceive of an Ameri-
can League array which would ig-
nore entirely the team that has won
seven pennants in eight years and
now is in first place by 4/ games.
If any other manager except Joe
McCarthy himself had undertaken to
whip one of the strongest National
League all-star squads in years with-
out the use of a single one of the
Bronx bombers, he not only would
have been considered foolhardy, but
probably would have been charged
with malice aforethought and the
hue and cry would have been terrific.
McCarthy is the the most uncom-
municative manager of the Major
League and his reasons for passing
over his own men in selecting not
only his starting lineup but his sub-
stitutes are veiled in mystery. One
thing is sure, though, his decision was
based neither on modesty or ca-
price. The year he started six Yan-
kees in an all-star game, and this
year when he used none at all, he
was goverened by his one consum-
ing passion--the will to win.
McCarthy's choice of a team was
the tip-off on his ability as a pilot.

Detroit Humbled by
Camp Grant Warriors
CAMP GRANT, Ill., Julyl1 4.-(/)-
Pounding Virgil (Fire) Trucks and
Prince Henry Oana for 15 safeties,
the Camp Grant warriors humbled
the Detroit Tigers, 13-4 in an exhibi-
tion game here ,oday.
Truckgs was the victim of a five-
run outburst in the second inning
and although that was ample to
win, the soldiers likewise gave Oana
a rough reception.
Russ Bauers, former Pittsburg Pi-
rates righthander, held the Tigers in
check after the opening inning when
he yielded two runs. Bauers' baffling
curve and fast ball handcuffed the
Tigers completely except in the third
and sixth innings when they man-
aged to push over lone runs.

Coach Waldorf
Sees Surplus of
Northwestern Football
Prospects Display
Excess of Talent
CHICAGO, July 14.-(A)-A sur-
plus of grid manpower rather than a
shortage may provide Coach Lynn
Waldorf with his No. 1 football prob-
lem at Northwestern this fall.
While many other universities and
colleges are abandoning the sport for
the duration or wondering where
their talent is coming from, Waldorf
beams with the knowledge that his
tentative roster right now not only
contains more than 50 athletes, but
experienced athletes at that. And
he still has the freshman crop to
pick from.
All this is the result of the large
number of gridders assigned to
Northwestern at Navy V-12 or Ma-
rine student units, many of them
former Minnesota, Denver or Nebras-
ka players.
Not Certain of Gridders
Waldorf cannot be absolutely cer-
tain of his Navy and Marine gridders
until after August 1 when the service
students undergo scholastic tests in
which they must meet certain re-
quirements in order to compete on
the gridiron. However, he is pretty
sure of having a pair of top-notch
backs around for awhile-Northwest-
ern's own Otto Graham and Herman
Frickey, the former Minnesota go-
pher now in marine training at
He also has about 20 other backs
from which to choose, including such
1942 wildcats as Dud Keane, Don
Buffmire, Joe Scriba, Lynn McNutt
and Harry Franck. From among the
service students he has Bill Proctor
and Tony Sarracino of Denver Uni-
versity and Henry Reichel of Nebras-
New Linesmen
Waldorf, starting his ninth season
at Northwestern, may have to con-
duct a "get acquainted hour" to learn
about many of his linemen, but he
is already satisfied with the ability
of three that appear on the list. They
are Joe Partington, Nebraska center;
Herb Hein, Minnesota end, and
Chuck Delago, Minnesota guard.
Not only do present indications
point to Waldorf winding up with
plenty of talent, but plenty of reserve
strength as well. Not even Michigan
and Notre Dame, other midwest
schools which also will be well
stocked with service players, are e-
pected to run as deep in reserve
power as the wilcats.
So Waldorf isn't having much
trouble these hot days forgetting last
year's compaign, when his' wildcats
won only one of 10 games.
Rams Abandon
Football Team
Lack of Manpower
Halts Gridiron Sport
NEW YORK, July 14.-(A)--Ford-
ham University, for many years pro-
ducer of strong football teams, today
announced it was abandoning the
gridiron sport for the duration.
Jack Coffey, graduate manager of
the Athletics, said the Rams lacked
sufficient manpower to field a team
but should the war department re-
lax its ruling abainst Army trainees
participating in athletics Fordham in
all nrobability would decide to plav

Coach Fears
Nne Will Lack
Practice Time
Majority of Summer
Squad Are Members.
Of Armed Force Units
It's not the lack of plenty of cap-
able material for a 1943 summer
baseball team that's worrying Coach
Ray Fisher, but rather the fact that
these seasoned porformers will, in all
probability, lack the time to partici-
plate in the great American pastime.
Most of this spring's varsity squad
have returned to the campus for the
third term. A majority of the men
are in some one of the branches of
the armed services however, so Fisher
expects them to be quite completely
occupied with their studies, at least
for the first few weeks.
If later in the season the team can
get together, on its own time, there
should be several teams in the sur-
rounding territory to offer some good
competition. And Michigan's team
would be a threat.
Captain-elect Howie Wikel is in
school this term. Paul White and
Bob Weise, two-thirds of this spring's
Maize and Blue outfield are back, but
Don Lund, the other part of the trio
has been called to active duty. Bob
Nussbaumer is back, however.
Bruce Blanchard, Michigan's star
performer at the hot corner, who
was given the Free Press award last
week-end as the outstanding baseball
player of the month on Detroit sand-
lots is here in the Marine reserve, as
are Bob Stenberg and Charley Ket-
Part of the twirling staff, are rep-
resented yet with Don McIntosh,
Dick Drury, "Pro" Boim and Don
Smith. But Bill Cain, and Dick Sav-
age are at Camp McCoy, Wisconsin.
Conspicuously absent will be the
freshman star, Dick Walterhouse,
who is now at West Point.
The Wolverine could put a fine
nine on the diamond this summer if
the team can only find time to get
organized. Fisher said that practice
sessions would be few, even if the
men could play, but that he would
like to see a team on the field.
M'Arthur Hails
Rebirth of His
Famous Division
CAMP GRUBER, Okla., July 14.-
(I)-With the blessing of its former
commander, General MacArthur, and
the heritage ofits veterans of World
War I, the historic Rainbow Division
was reborn today to take its place in
the fight against the Axis.
"It seems to me a happy augury
that the date of July 14, which in
the World War marked the shatter-
ing of the case. Great offensive has
been selected to bring again into be-
ing a division so prominent on that
occasion and so unique in its con-
cept and proud of its accomplish-
ments," said MacArthur in a mes-
sage from his headquarters in the
Southwest Pacific.
MacArthur, who named his World
War division the "Rainbow" because
it drew its troops from 26 state and
the District of Columbia, declared:
"We of the old 42nd place our
pride in your hands. May God bless
and aid you."

Former Editor Tells
Of Norway's Strong
Courage and Morale
"I don't know how Norwegians can
last out another winter," Miss Elsa
Margretha Roed, former editor of a
Norwegian magazine,-said yesterday.
"We were fortunate last winter be-
cause it was fairly mild, but this
year we have even less food and
practically no fuel."
"Still the people are confident in
an United Nations victory; they have
always been confident, and so have
been able to maintain their nation-
ality in spite of the Germans. The
universities are closed, but in the
barracks Qutside of Oslo in the Ger-
man concentration camps teachers
are still lecturing on the liberal arts
-even when they know they can be
killed for the lectures," she said.
When speaking of the tremendous
changes that have come over Nor-
way, Miss Roed said that there were
no clubs, no organizations, that
since the German occupation the.
land of winter sports has had no
athletic competitions.
"Just a short time ago 50 of our
best skiers were put to death because
they refused to compete with the
"That is our greatest weapon-
aloof contempt," Miss Roed said.
"We refuse to have anything to do
with the Germans, and it is the chief
purpose of the underground news-
papers to inform the people who of
them is sympathetic with the Nazis.
We have a strict boycott against
anything German, particularly Ger-
man propaganda which means we
don't go to the movies or the thea-
tres or read their newspapers.
"My countrymen are facing star-
vation, and yet they have built such
a strong will against the propaganda
that they managed to keep up both
morale and appearances, They are
proud of being Norwegians, and
Two WAC Shirts
Issued to Soldier
EAST LANSING, July 14.-(A)-
His animal patients may never know
the difference, but one Michigan
State College veterinary student
probably will be embarrassed every
time he dons his Army togs for
classes. His G. I. equipment includes
two WAC shirts.
The student was among 127 mem-
bers of the veterinary school who
returned today after a three-day in-
doctrination period at Fort Custer.
Last in line as the soldier-students
were fitted with Army uniforms, the
slightly built lad received the two
shirts from a grinning quartermaster
sergeant, who explained that WAC
items were the only top dregs left in
the store-room.

proud of their superior educations.
"We are severely censored and our
books in the libraries are minus the
dangerous' authors works. When
America entered the war 'Gone With
the Wind' was banned from the li-
braries. Among Norwegians it is
considered an honor to be the author
of a banned book."
Miss Roed escaped from the Nazi
Gestapo when they discovered that
she was working with the under-
ground movement. She is now lec-
turing in this country for the Nor-
wegian embassy and spoke twice yes-
terday in Ann Arbor.
The magazine she formerly edited
was closed by the Germans because
it "Wished all good Norwegians 'A
happy New Year'."
Hay Fever To
Be Postponed
Contrary to rumor, hay fever
sufferers will actually begin their
sneezing a week or two later this
year, according to Dr. Buenaven-
tura Jimenez, physician of the al-
lergy division of the Health Ser-
It seems only natural that the
heavy rain lately would hasten the
ragweed season which causes hayj
fever in Michigan. Dr. Jimenez
explained that such reasoning is
There are three seasons in which
pollen is plentiful enough to cause
sneezing. The first usually oc-
curs from March to the first part
of June. However, this year the
first season was late because of
unusual weather. For this reason
the third season in which the rag-
weed pollinates is off-schedule and
will not begin as usual in the mid-
dle of 'August but will occur from
one to two weeks later.
Dr. Jimenez added that although
the lateness of season may seem to
be good news, actually it is not.
When the ragweed season does be-
gin, it will be more severe than

Miss Whittemore concluded. "Not

C.ontinued Chinese Education
Symbolizes Will To Survive
"Students in Chinese Universities would probably have little sympathy
for American students who complain about lengthy lectures," Dr. B. A. Liu,
lecturer for the Chinese News Service, said yesterday, "because the lack of
textbooks and libraries has forced Chinese professors to teach almost ex-
elusively through lectures."
"Certainly nq Chinese student would coiplain about minor things like
a shortage of equipment," he continued, "when the mere existence of uni-
versities in China symbolizes the Chirese will to survive in the face of any

ter the war and has tried to keep
school open despite the fact that
educational institutions were among
the first bombing objectives of the
Japanese," he continued.
"Universities have literally walked
as many as 1,500 miles into the in-
terior to escape Japanese bombs.
Students and faculty members
picked up their personal belongings
and what equipment they could car-
ry and moved from the coastal cities
to the safer lands in the west."
Dr. Liu feels that the efforts of
students and teachers have been
highly successful because more stu-
dents are now enrolled in Chinese
colleges and universities than at any
time before the war.
Dr. Liu, who is spending some
time in the curriculum workshop of
the School of Education, is inter-
ested in helping teachers learn about
the resources and materials available
for use in teaching about the land
and people of China.
He is also particularly interested
in international education after the
war. "The people of China and es-
pecially the students are definitely
concerned with world events and feel
that it is necessary to have peace
and security on a world-wide scale
for any nation to live in peace," he
said. "Education must be lifted
above the national level to an inter-
national setting if peace for any na-
tion is to be won," he added.

Governor Kelly Seeks
To Save State's Crops
LANSING, July 14.-(/P)-Governor
Kelly today appealed for "thousands
of additional workers" to volunteer
to' help the farmers of Michigan
"save the state's fruit and vegetable
crops"as volunteer harvest hands.
Kelley pointed out~ that the Of-
fice of Price Administration has
made available supplemental gasoline
allowances to take persons to labor-
short harvest fields and - orchards,
and described procedures which must
be followed to obtain this gasoline.
"The most pressing harvest emer-
gency now confronting the state is
the cherry crop in the Grand Tra-
verse region," Kelly said in a state-
ment telephoned to his office here
from Charlevoix.
While the cherry harvest will be
far below normal because of weather-
caused losses, he said, it still will be
considerable. He said picking would
start next week and continue about
30 days. I
Declaring food was as important as
bullets in fighting the war, he called
