guided the junior varsity through

Crisler is drawing no line, and every-

workers, such as are trained in
business schools, are certain to
be in continuing demand after
the war.
The record shows that the
same situation prevails in pri-
vate business - in the offices
ofnindustry, commerce, and

pression, business school grad-
uates were in demand.
The number of women clerical
workers increased from 187,053 in

states: "Postwar prospects for office
workers look good. The trend of
employment is upward."
At present, the demand for busi-

greater than the supply.

The result of all this has been that Dodgers have been winning
most of their games by scores of 12-10, 15-11, 9-8, and so on. High
scoring slugfests have been the rule rather than the exception. One
wonders if they can hold the pace. Walker is a fairly dependable
man with the bat, but Olmo and Rosen are relative unknown quanti-
ties who may relax at any time. And once their hitting falls off, the
Bums from Brooklyn are bound to skid.
Who will take their place? The Cubs have it now by a one-game mar-
gin. New York, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Boston are all in the running.
On form, the Cardinals are the best of the lot, but pennants are rarely
won on form. At any rate, the National League race should have plenty
of thrills right down to the final week of play if things go on at the present

admiration of Big Bill Nicholson,
slugging Chicago Cub outfielder.
The baldish, talkative Brooklyn
manager told The Touchdown Club
at a $5-a-plate luncheon that "Nich-

self." Leo was the principal and
only speaker.

"Every time he swings this bat it
has a menacing swish," Durocher
said, "and when he connects, he sim-
ply flattens the ball. That guy's like
a big beast. He ought to. be in a
league by himself."
Later, when asked for his All-Star
