PETERSBURG, Fla., Dec. 22.—iff)—Johnny Nee, baseball scout for the New York Yankees, predicted today that the selective service act which may upset the star-studded lineups of major league teams will prove a bles sing in disguiee. "While the draft may take some of the name players,” said Nee, "their presence on army camp teams may mean the development of young players who otherwise would never give baseball a sec ond thought.” The veteran ivory hunter said a general lack of physical fitness among young men has made base ball talent rather scarce in recent years. “Army life is going to harden these boys and make them anxious to compete in sports,” he said. “Every camp will have its base ball teams and if a big league player happens to be on hand to help instruct, the opportunity and incentive for making good will be considerable. Some of these boys ought to develop into good play ers.” Nee recalled that many a young star emerged from army camps after the World war, and added ‘‘don’t forget that Dizzy Dean got his start at Fort Sam Houston, He said he would visit army camps in his southern territory, and observed “I’m not taking any chances on missing another Dean who might pop up in one of them.” As a tip to youngsters who would like to make their army camp a stepping stone to the big leagues, Nee said pitchers, catch ers and first basemen “are the fellows we are after most. Right now they’re scarce as hen’s teeth.” The Yankee scout spends the off-season puttering around his garden here and enjoying an oc casional round of golf. The Yan kees will do their spring training here. “It will be the busiest we’ve had in a long, long time,” he declared, and added that a promising bunch of recruits would be on hand to try for places on the squad. 4 ITALIANS EXECUTE CONVICTED SPIES (Continued From Page One) was back in barracks before there was even an official announcement of the trial. This statement disclosed that 25 other persons also had stood trial as “members of a network of in formers which acted in our coun try in the interest of a foreign power,” and that only three were acquitted because of insufficient evidence. The case was the first to come to public notice since Italy entered the war a little over six months ago. The trial ended last night, a few hours before Cocozza and Ghezzi were marched out of their cells to their death. The nature of the espionage ac tivities was not disclosed. Some thing relating to the navy, how ever, was suggested in the occupa tions of those involved. Some observers thought the case might have related to the British air raid on the Taranto naval base on Nov. 11 when three Italian bat tleships were torpedoed and dam aged. On the other hand the an nouncement that it was a spy “net work” indicated the scope might be more extensive. Cocozza lived in Taranto, at least part of the time, and Ghezzi was a navy quartermaster. 3 LOSS OF BRITISH SUB IS ANNOUNCED (Continued From Page One) and mount one 3-inch gun and six 21-inch torpedo tubes as their chief armaments. The Swordfish class, a seagoing type, was the forerun ner of the successful Shark class. The official announcement said: “The board of admiralty regrets to announce that H. M. Submarine Swordfish '(Lieut. M. A. Langley, D.S.C, R.N.) is overdue and must be considered lost. “The next of kin have been in formed.” The Swordfish cost about $1,000, 000.

A crowd of approximately 500 turned out for the contest.

He plunged through the line for the first touchdown and scored one extra point on a line plunge. Hope Juniver snagged a pass for the second score and Charlie Har key caught a pass for the final touchdown that came near the end of the game.

I ITALIAN DEFEATS BLAMED ON LACK OF ARMORED CARS (Continued From Page One) tinuing massing of British forces and equipment east of Matruh, whiclj was then attributed to a British determin ation to stave off the expected Ital ian push. From prisoners captured during a night raid on Dec. 7, the report said, news was heard that a British at tack was to be launched in about ten days. Guards were strengthened, Graziani said and he again advised his of ficers to hold themselves in readi ness for a British attack. Graziani’s communication was made public as Italian artillery, combat planes and bombers, and at least one warship were fighting a hard defensive battle against the in vading British forces in Libya. The warship, described in a high command communique only as "one of our naval units,” bombarded Brit ish motorized groups near the Medi terranean coast, the communique said. It also claimed that an Italian torpedo boat shot down a torpedo launching plane. Graziani explained to Mussolini that the Fascists failed to start an offensive on Matruh, Egypt, early in December because they lacked armor ed cars, tanks and other mechanized equipment which had not arrived ' from Italy in due time. (The British have maintained £ blockade of the Italian lines of com munication across the Mediterranean since the African campaign began.; If the number of prisoners taker ! by the British is high, Graziani tolc the Duce, it is because the Italians , held out “to the last spasm,” and . Mussolini “must not doubt theii bravery.” "Italian troops sacrificed them selves without sparing,” he said. "I once more confirm to you categoric ally that everybody there has ful filled his duty as far as possible.” His report v as long and detai -d the preparations for the Italian of fensive ordered by Mussolini the day after the Fascist troops reached Sidi Barrani, Egypt, in September. To supply water in the occupied zone in Egypt the marshal said, his troops built 72 miles of pipeline and road from Fort Capuzzo on the Libyan frontier to Sidi Barrani. Some of the Italian units, he de clared, marched hundreds of miles on foot, to economize on transport facilities, and were “burning for battle.” By the first day of December all the Italians lacked for the offensive was the tanks and mechanized equip ment they had ordered from home. Jimmie Parker Is Story Behind Aggies Grid Team COLLEGE STATION, Tex., Dec. 22.—Uf)—A bubbling, tousled kid ot 135 pounds who stands on tip-toe to make his vagrant cowlick touch Jarrin’ John Kimbrough’s chin, is the real story behind the story of the Texas Aggie football team. Jimmie Parker is our hero. Officially, Jimmie is listed as the student manager of the team. Actually, he mothers the brood of giants who play Fordham in the Dallas Cotton Bowl classic on New Year’s Day. “Greatest little fellow I ever knew,” smiles Coach Homer Nor ton. “Don’t know what we would; do without him. After every game, with hundreds swarming on the field, I can just quietly say ‘Jim mie’ and something rustles right at my elbow. It’s Jimmie.” Several weeks ago in the crucial Rice game Center Tommie Vaughn went down for the first time in his college career. He had been hit on the head. Shortly after the game they re moved him to the college infirm ary. Jimmie Parker followed them straight to Vaughn’s room, pulled up a chair at his bedside. Vaughn was delirious. Like a mother hen fluttering her wings over a hurt chick, Jimmie Parker sat there for 18 hours. Once, at the height of Vaughn’s restless tumbling, Jimmie discovered his pajamas pants had wrapped tight ly around his body. Vainly he tugged at the big man to straighten his clothes. It didn’t work. Jimmie quietly slipped out in the hall, came rustling back with a pair of surgical scissors. He calmly cut the pajamas off his legs. Jimmie could write a book about the Aggies. But he doesn’t say much. “Did I ever tell you. the one about Jim Sterling?”, he grins. “Well Jim was a great sopho more end last year you know. “One day, just before practice, Jim was trimming a toe with a razor blade. His hand slipped and he cut his toe. What you think he did when he ’ saw the blood? He fainted! The same guy who plays one of the roughest ends in the league. But he’s no sissy—I’ll tell you that!” Jimmie, who never has had the size to play football but lives it 365 days a year, will tell you the Aggie team is good “because the stuff is there and they play "hard for the coaches; the boys are just like brothers, I tell ya.” “And just between you and me, we’ll take Fordham on New Year’s Day. Don’t ever worry a minute about it. I know these guys.” 4 NOTHING SETTLED IN CAGE PLAY YET East, Midwest Take Lead; George Washington Shows Southerners Something NEW YORK, Dec. 22.—UPl—A couple of weeks of strenuous inter sectional basketball campaigning to start the 1940-41 season appears to have proved only that one sec tion turns out about as good teams as another these days. To some extent the strong and the weak teams in each major division have come to light, but in general each major division has come out about even so far as the big Seams were concerned. The East and Mid-West have the best records, but this is due partly to the fact that they’ve placed more games in which a “major” team opposes a "minor” outfit. The barnstorming tours continue through the coming week to supply most ol the action during the holi day season and even these inter sectional games are fewer in num ber. Of the teams that were on tour last week, only the Oklahoma Aggies and West Texas teachers had anv notable successes and neither came through the week with perfect records. The Aggies, after beating City College of New York,-St. Joseph’s of Ph laoelphia ana George Wash ington on a three-game eastern toui, wtnt home Saturday to lose 28-25 to Southern California. It was their first defeat' on their home court in 4 3-2 years, during which they hsd won 47 straight gamjr. The tall Texans continued a visit to the Mid-West, winning three ol five games during the week and six of eight in all. Oregon State finished its visit to the rocky mountain area by beat ing Colorado State, Colorado col lege and Denver on successive aights after losing two games to Colorado, the defending big-seven champions, earlier in the week. Southern California lost twice to Rice and once to the Phillips 66 club of Bartlesville, Okla., while beating Southern Methodist and Oklahoma A. and M. ourveyuig me ic&uiis »u ac»i vy sections, the strong and weak points in each appear something like this: South — George Washington which will become a member of the Southern Conference next fall, knocked off Davidson, Clemson and Duke to show its future rivals what to expect. Richmond took an early lead in conference competi tion by beating Clemson and Mary land. William and Mary also beat Clemson and the Tigers downed Maryland to wind up competition until after New Year’s. Florida went right to the top of the Southeastern conference, divid ing games with Alabama and beat ing Mississippi 35-27 and Mississip pi state 53-30 on a road trip. Ken tucky, the conference tournament champion, lost to Nebraska and Creighton but beat Kansas state in the Mid-West. The Wildcats head this week’s program, playing Centenary in a tune-up for the Sugar Bowl game against Indiana Dec. 30. 3 MAROONS DRILL STATE COLLEGE, Miss., Dec. 22.—UP)—The Mississippi state Ma roons are scheduled to hold the first of three workouts tomorrow, after a five-day layoff, before boarding their special train Christ mas morning for Miami, Fla., and the New Year’s Day Orange Bowl game with Georgetown 3 All But One Member Of Eagles Take Day Off BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss., Dec. 22. —IP)—All of the Boston college football squad took a day off to day except Gene Goodreault, star end, and viewed the Mississippi Gulf coast by boat and automo bile. Goodreault, plagued by a bad knee, jogged twice around St. Stanislaus stadium. Members of the coaching staff were obviously pleased by his condition, although refraining from an opinion that he might be able to play against Ten nessee in the New Year’s Day Su gar Bowl game at New Orleans. Coach Frank Leahy announced that there would be but one work out daily starting tomorrow. The team had two brisk drills Satur day. Walter Boudreau of Cambridge, Mass., sophomore quarterback who had remained east to play with the Boston college hockey team, arrived in camp today. 4 War Interpretive (Continued From Page One) statement as director of the new ly-created top American defense agency. Security Involved “Both the future security of the United States and the total de fense for our democratic princi ples” is involved in the efforts to aid Britain amply and quickly, he said, and added on behalf of the lour members of the office for pro duction management: "We call upon the people of the United States to recognize to the full the gravity of the crisis which called this organization into being, the figuratively pull off their coats and roll up their sleeves and give their concentrated, undivided at tention to one thing—the swiftest possible production of the means of - defense.” The outspoken statement con tained no mention of the Berlin foreign office contention, ad vanced a few hours earlier, that Britain’s minister of shipping was “inciting America to commit a warlike act” in expressing hope that the Axis ships might become available to replenish the British merchant marine. dui me timing and ettect should be as unmistakable at home and abroad as if President Roosevelt or Secretary Hull had spoken. Within a few days, these and other significant pronouncements in every major Axis capital, in the United States and Britain, have brought into ever sharper focus the “gravity of the world situation ’ of which Knudsen spoke.

In any event, similar threats and warnings can be looked for in increasing volume as the pace quickens in a fateful race for time between “irerconciliable” forces. The official replies must come from the President and the secre tary of state. From Knudsen came the exhortation of one working man to others, to give a grim an swer with productive toil. 4 Ml I Vols Resume Work For Sugar Bowl Tilt Today KNOXVILLE,Tenn., Dec. 22.— Ut)—Recess is over for the Ten nessee Volunteers. Major Bob Neyland gave h i s Squad a three week vacation from football practice when the regular season ended, but he has called them back to the field tomorrow to begin preparations for the New Year’s Day game with the> Boston College Eagles in the New Orleans Sugar Bowl. “In the past two years,” Ney land said, “our boys have been to two Bowl games and worked right on through December preparing for the contests. “This year I was afraid they would get fed up on football and for this reason I gave them three weeks away from the game.” The Major figures that in nine days, he can bring the team up to top condition with little chance they will grow stale. 4 Herbert Hoover Helps Girls Get Grid Tickets OMAHA, Neb., Dec. 22— UP) — Herbert Hoover came through in a pinch, and that’s why Ruth Hen derson, 23, and Roberta Morton, 26, had tickets today for the Ne braska-Stanford football game in the Rose Bowl. They sent a telegram to the for mer president and Stanford alum nus when they couldn’t get tickets in Nebraska, asking his help. Mr. Hoover’s secretary advised them to get in touch with the Ne braska alumni representative on the Pacific coast, but added the girls would be kept in mind “just in case.” The secretary pointed out Mr. Hoover had a block of tickets for his family and ‘‘close friends.” The alumni representative couldn’t deliver, so the girls sent another appeal to Mr. E •>vef. Came a reply that two tickets would be saved for them, pre sumably from Mr. Hcover's re served supply. 4 Four Golf Wizards To Play In Duke's Match MIAMI, Fla., Dec. 22—(J>1—Four golfing masters, winners of a total of 33 national titles, each at least once British open champion, today agreed to play in a match sponsor ed by the Duke of Windsor at Nassau for the benefit of the Red Cross.
