The.distance across the strait, at its narrowest point, is two miles. Prior to landing on Italy proper, Allied batteries along the Sicilian coast shelled Axis positions across this stretch of water. Afrika Korps Men Save Peanut Crop in Georgia Harvesting peanuts occupies, most,of the time of these tormer German soldiers, once dubbed \super- men.\ They were members of the Afrika Korps, first German troops to collapse.

DARK WOOD Question: Last year our dark ma- ftogahy stained woodwork was done \over with' white enamel.- Now it is\ crackie^ afad'the- darkrfiolor is com* ;mgrirjirl5uih>>^j:s; tjhere some way to get betteir resists next time we do it Answer: It'is my guess that the surface was hot properly prepared before the enamel was applied. Paint will siot adhere to a glossy yarnisbi and the smahpg^ny stain, should have 'been seali|Pih with a coat of shellac. 1 \ Yout best move is to take off me finish \with\ a'Hot solu- tion of wasbing|||jQda or trisodium phosphate^thxe'eJibUnds to the gal* ^ipn at:^w^^JVMii^-i&aiwnhg *tbe !pSint'-and y^riush^rciSse, the wood with clear Wa^err Then bleach put the. stain by-^cpating lihera'lly with a : hot saturated solution of ox- alic' acid., -Leave it on overnight and then rinse -well with clear wa- ter. When 'the wood is -dry, smooth if necessary, by rubbing with'-very fine sandpaper, Wipe;off the diisf and then finish. according to the manufacturer's directions on the can for new woodwork. N - * * * Cleaning Entrance Floorings Question: ^'WbaJ is the best meth- od and soap to use for cleaning ter- razzo, rubber tile and Imbleiim in an apartment buildingentrance? Answer: As a general rule, a terrazzo floor calls for ,ho more than' scrubbing with pure soap and water, rinsing thoroughly and dry- ing. For a polish,' use thin coats of paste floor wax; rub each coat well after allowing'.a, half hour for drying. The linoleum can be cleaned in the sam~& way, but great care must be taken not to flood it. Work on tiles in the same way as the linoleum, and, when clean and dry, apply bright-drying water wax, or a wax that does npt : require polish- ing..'! Plenty of clean water should be used to remove all traces of soap. If this is not done, the floors soon will become shabby and dif- ficult to clean, particularly the ter- razzo. * * # MODERNIZED BATHTUB Question: I have heard that an old-style bathtub with legs can be converted ,to the builfrin style. Can you tell me how? , :,-, . Answer: Take off the Iggs by slip- ping them out. BuilS.a support of two by fours'in one corner of the room .on-: which the tub... will, rest, wedging one end and Md^ of the-. tub again^ the wall. Build a frame around the tub, to be finished with tile or some other waterproof' ma- terial. The room walls should meet the top'edge of the 1 'tub so' that'the tub will catch water that drips from them. Pipe connections- should be made according ; to convenience. -».-. •.* , *. - . Repairing Pottery Question: I have a Wedgewood pottery jug, pieces, of which are chipped out and missing. Is there any tenacious substance that I could use. to fill in the missing pieces? • Answer:. Genuine Wedgewood should be repaired by an expert. Home methods might look botched and show -. crack-lines. ~ But if you still wish to try the job,-use .white; lead paste thickened with powdered whiting. This will take some months to dry hard. Names and addresses of china arid glass repair shops\ can be found in your classified telephone directory/. | BuigingiLinoleum Question!\liWhajt should I. do for linoleum jhat'%as just begun to bulge? ... , Answer:. Cut a slit across the mid- dle of the bulge with a razor blade, following a line of the pattern; a line between two squares, for inr stance. Then work some linoleum cement under the linoleum through the slit with a knife blade, pressing down first \one\ side of the slit and then 'the other. Use plenty of the cement, wiping off wet smears \on the surface with turpentine^ Press the bulge back into place and put on weights until the cement is dry. '.,*** New Carpeting Over Old Question: We are going to re- Curpet our dining-room. The floor is of poor, unfinished lumber. As both the new and old carpeting are moth-proofed, would you think it a good plan to use the old carpeting as a padding under the new' Answer: Yes* but before laying the' carpeting,- see that all, irregu- larities, in the floor boards are taken oufc-either by planing or scraping With a floor sanding machine. The smoother the floor the longer the .floor, covering will last •£. I T BEMAOTED for a young, keen- eyed ' corpoJral from Montauk, deeply interested in the sport, as ttiost of our servicemen are, to ask a rather baffling question. We were talking about the big bond, sales gathering from baseball's Hall' of ! Fame at me Yankee Stadium. \Could you tell me,\he asked? •from this Hall-of- Fame group* which men you consider outstanding^I mean the foj£ of the list.\to each position?'. ^W« have a lot of arguments ' about \this around the barracks. There must be a few who head the list..\ *• -' • This was a quick-order decision. We had to*make it that way? And here it was: Outfield— Cobb, Ruth and Speaker. Infield—Bonus Wagner. Pitchers — €y Young, Walter Johnson. Here, were just six'names that bopped out from -what is sometimes known as the:£ubcOTSc&us;roundup of more than 40 years. . Here is the way these quick selec- tions worked out: Back of the bat we have Bill Dickey, Mickey Cochrane, Gabby Harthett, iJuck Ewing and Keger Bresnahan. My vote here goes for BiH Dickey, but there can be an argument. In the box we have .Cy Young, Christ/ .Mathewson, Grover Alexan- der, Waiter Johnson, Xefty Grove. At first we have Lou Gehrig, George Sister, Bill Terry. At second we have Nap'Lajoie, Eddie Collins, Rogers , Horasby, Frank Frisch. A photo finish. At short we have only one man-^- Honus Wagner. . At third we have Jimmy' Collins, Pie Traynor, Art Devlin, and Bill Bradley. In the outfield we have Cobb, Ruthj Speaker .and Joe Jackson— with Joe DiMaggio comjhg on. Ted Williams, a great hitter, was not a great outfielder. Backto^Results I would say the top man on the list was Honus Wagner—in the infield spot. \The. flying Dutchman, a great shprtstbpV led his league in'hitting year after year. .'•',..' He was'also a brilliant base run- ner. Shortly before he died John\ \MeQraw who knew more than 'his share - of : -baseball, .rated- Wagner as the greatest 'ballplayer of all time. In the outfield you'ean't get away from Cobb, Ruth and .Speaker-^hit- tmg, fielding and spirit. Shoeless Joe Jackson was the greatest natural hitter of them all. But Jackson finished under a cloud. It is almost impossible to split Lajoie, Collins and Hornsby. If I happened to be a manager.I'd like to have any of these men around. Collins had the speed—the smart- ness. Lajoie and Hornsby had the hitting power. Cy Young won 511 ball games, more than most men ever pitch. . 'lie was the star of two leagues. Waiter Johnson was the best pitch- er I ever. saw. I believe these are the two standouts.- Look over Johnson's strike-out, shutrout and earned-run record There's the story. The best all-around ballplayer I ever saw—outfield, infield, pitching and hitting—was Babe Ruth.' •Ruth and Cobb—or Cobb and Ruth —are still the two greatest ballplay- ers the old game has ever known. Plus Hans Wagner. Mathewson and Sockalexis Our old college chum, Andy Oak- ley, told me \You made a mis- take in naming your two greatest pitchers.\ I.mean Cy Young and Wal- ter Johnson.\ \TheSe two won close to lyOOO big league\ games,\ I suggested. \No one else was even close. WJiafs your pick?\* ' ; \ { \!'. \Chrjisly^Mathewson \He' was the best and the smartest pitcher I ever saw in more than 40 years. I'll admit Matty never had as much stuff as Johnson had' and he never had the incredible stamina of Cy Young. But he was the best.\ \Who was the greatest ballplayer I left off?\ I asked Andy. \An Indian by the name of Sock- alexis, whp played with Cleveland. He could outhit Cobb, Ruth, Speaker or Jackson. He had' more speed than, all of them.\ Wartime Sports Program Most of those who believe that sport should either be eliminated or cut to small measure in wartime are out of the service; Most of those who favor as good a program as possible are in the service. I have, talked with many serv- icemen, and \I have yet to find , a single entry who doesn't want sport to keep going, largely for his own interest in baseball, football or box- ing, news of which comes through newspapers, radio wi movies. ~, fttlJWll By VIRGINIA VAXE eleaeed by Western Newspaper Union. I NGRID BERGMAN'S su- perb perfonriaiiee in **For Whom the Bell foils\ is one oi those filings that people re- member for years. It's the more notable because in that opus she wag \up against real- ly; tough competition. Katina Paxihou, the talented Greek actress who plays \Pilar can. dominate any scene, without half trying; arid the list of male actors reads like an all-star cast. Incidentally, after 100 performances the picture was still selling out at all performances in INGRID BERGMAN New York; ibatmeant that for eight solid weeks the public .had been trooping;-to the theater to > see just that picture-7-honews: reel, no com- .edy, no other-attraction.; . .Mentioning Ingrid Bergman re\ minds me that in \Gaslight;\ which she is making with-Charles Boyer—? who-plays a most villainous villain, -^you'll see Tarqum ©iivier, son of Laurence-Olivier and JUl .Esmond; the clever and attractive ..attress who was his wife before lie married Vivian Leigh.
