There will be gaps in the ranks— • many gaps—but within a short while football will show unexpected strength on both the pro and the service-college side. The pros will be far stronger than anyone figured they would be six months ago. And the Navy has sent enough fancy talent' to take good care oif a'large col- lege group, and give each section fast-moving and scrap- py contests through the fall. After all, the Navy got its share of college football stars' from the 80,000 students they are sending back- -for war training, and Jrdm'/this col- lection there are several hundred names' remembered from last year's program; • In spite of the Army's, stand against football, there will b e enough good teams, id cover, the map. this fall: Strong competition will appear in every section, although more than a few will have to take some heavy pounding-from much stronger teams which happen to have the stars. Someone has suggested that un- der such conditions there will be more upsets than ever. I doubt it. There should be fewer surprises to annoy the guesser, selector, prophet or soothsayer. It is a sure thing that a nnmber of unknown, unsung stars will be found among the mass of Navy and Marine material—many who have played little or no football. It will be an interesting part of the game to see just how many un- knowns pop suddenly into the spot- light before the season is over. Shooting at a Record Something over 20 years ago the Giants had a left-hander by the name of Ferdie Schupp. He had a fast curve ball that could break the back of an iron buffalo. He finished a busy season with an earned run record at 1.06, the low mark of his profession. Even the blazing fire of Walter Johnson could never quite equal this average. Walter's best earned run mark was around 1.09. There is a 1943 entry who is crowd- ing both' Schupp and Johnson in this department of sharp shooting. His name is Spud Chandler of the Yankees who is now close enough to reac hbut and tap either of them. . I hadn't, thought of this, until„I happened to be talking to Spud, oth- erwise known as Spurgeon, about his best year. \I'm pretty close to that earned run matter,\ he said. \I just hap- pened to be figuring it up the other day-. If I can stay somewhere around the :best figures I .shouldn't lose many ball'games with Yankee hit- tingto carry, me alongi. I'd .like to finish the season around ihe one earned run spot although it means I can't do any resting even with a big lead.\ Chandler's record' so far is ab- normal in view of the fact that in the last ten or fifteen years the lead-. : ing effective pitchers led their, leagues above.2 or 2.% spotless .tal- lies. Too. many home-runs today are likely to break out .at any interval and pile up the score. Earned Run AtgUments The earned run should be the best test of high-class pitching, although Mathewson and other old timers used to argue differently. If his team gave Matty a fair lead Big Six would promptly ease up to save his arm. \There are always a lot of other games to pitch,\ he said, \so why riot save the arm for another day?\ In the first place, those were the days of the much deader-ball when ten or eleven home runs would lead the league. In the second place, old-time stars had to work in many more games. Query Without an Answer We have asked* any number ...of •veteran horsemen why it is that so few high priced yearlings ever made good. No one seems to have an answer. j:t must be remembered, of course, that thousands of cheaper horses are fspld and bought who also never get to the post pr win a race. You don't hear about these. But any horse that brings $10,000 or more is in the spotlight; And when he flops it i s always a story. •••• •:Ky.?VmGmj&,WSI0::, -•; -;.', Released by Western Newspaper Union. I T. BURGESS MEREDITH -* certainly didn't expect, when he went overseas, that he'd find himself in a Mid- lands' market town in.

Incidentally, we hear.that Meredith, Clark Gable arid James Stewart may get leaves in order to make array pictures. Jean Pierre Aumont's been hav- ing name trouble. After his first American picture, \Assignment in Brittany,\ was released, he got so many fan letters asking how to pro- nounce his first name that it was decided to drop it. Then along came more letters saying that the writers liked the triple name—so it's as Jean Pierre Aumont that he'll be listed in \The Cross of Lorraine.\ Robert Walker, the sensational sailor in \Bataari\ who was so good in that picture that he was cast for the second male lead in \Madame Curie\ even before \Bataan\ was fin- ished, nearly missed his big chance. In his first test for the \Bataan\ role, he played the sailor as a man of 24. \Director Tay Gametf'had a heart; instead of tossing out the test he explained to Bob that the sailor was a lad in his 'teens. Another test was shot, he got the part, and before \Madame Curie\ was fin- ished he had the lead in \See Here, Private Hargrove.\ Robert Benchley's given up air travel for the duration. \I'm tired of sleeping in airports,\ says he Recently he had to rush from New York to Hollywood for RKO*s \The Sky's the Limit.\ In Kansas City they gave his seat to a ferry pilot.

' t ' \;. \ ..,'_ • Answer: Trisodium phosphate has many rises in a household. It has the effect of destroying grease, and \thus makes a good cleaner'. A hand- ful in a'dishpan makes dishwashing easier, and one or, two tablespoons iri a .pail of water is excellent for cleaning painted surfaces^ In strong- er, solutions it eats into the paint, even.to the extent of being a first- rate paint remover. For this, it is used in the proportion of three pounds to the gallon of water. When applied boiling hot, with a dish rhpp or brush, paint and varnish soften -quickly and can be taken off by , mbbirig with a .cloth or by nsing a scraper; On some kinds of wood the. grain maj be raised;siightiy,'so: sandpapering will be heeded before, refinisbing. It is harmless to the. skjri;= - Trisodium phosphate is not stocked by drugstores. It can be had from chemical houses, and many paint stores sell it under its chemical name, as well as under the name of beet salt. It also is sold under Jinany trade names. Rust in Oven Question: Our gas range is begin- ning to rust on the inside! '• How should we go about cleaning it? Answer: The following is a method for cleaning a c.ookstove that would seerri to be weli worth trying: \For the oven, wrmg out thor- oughly a cloth that was wet with water. Then saturate the cloth with common household ammonia. Place it in the oven with the door closed and leave it overnight Do the same with the broiler. For the burners, extinguish the pilot flame and cover the burners or area with eloths sat- urated with ammonia; if the range has a table top close it. Do not wring out the ammonia. You will be amazed to find that the next morn- ing there is no odor whatsoever, and that the rust and soil just wipe off. I usually finish with scouring powder and a steel wool pad, but this really is not necessary.\ » c * SUNKEN SIDEWALK Question: Part of the concrete sidewalk in my backyard has sunk- en, so that in rains and when snow melts, long pools are formed. How can it be raised to'its»prdper level? Answer: If sidewalk was made in squares, these can be raised with a crowbar, so that a stone or cinder filling can be placed underneath. If the sidewalk is one continuous strip, the. sunken part should be broken into small pieces, to be packed and used as a foundation for a new layer of concrete. .If you. are not familiar with tbe work; it\ might be' a dif- fipult job, but one that a concrete contractor, would find very simple.' Asbestos Shingles Question: How are asbestos shin- gles cut? Can they be cut with a hatchet, like wooden shingles? Will a carpenter's saw do? I have heard that a mail-order house has a tool for the purpose; would this be bet- ter? ' •.''.;•-'.'.••. • .- ' -;•:': Answer: A rigid sbingle, made of asbestos fiber and cement, cannot be cut yjith a hatchet. If cut^with a carpenter's saw, sharpening and rer setting would be ;.rieces'sa'ry: to put the saw- back in shape. A special cutting!.tool- for this type!pf ihirigle is!'necessary.;, the' one!ybu' say is handled by the mailorder, house.
