We’re perfectly satis fied with the second guess, as when the first guesser picks the wrong shell in a shell game the second guy can’t very well miss. Or can he? Anyway, our second guesses con cern two tactical yerrors of the Yankee brains that might be de scribed as too much and too late. Ed Barrow talked too much and Joe McCarthy started Hank Bar rowy too late. Naturally, we might be all wrong in our Monday morning quarter backing of the recent Yankee de feats, for it might have been in the books for them to lose re gardless of any strategy they might emplay. But if you’re look ing for some reason you might consider Barrow’s remarks that aroused Connie Mack, and Mac Carthy’s withholding of Borowy from action for 11 days, except for one .inning’s work, in order to spot him against the Tigers. Barrow exploded verbally over the fact a pro football team was permitted to use Shibe park, and that the Yankees could not play the athletics there the following night because of the condition of the field. He had a good point, of course, as those caterpillar-treaded gri ders churning up and down a wet field are bound to turn it into a thocoate cake batter, and even dry field is liable to look like it had been m tne way oi a catue stampede. But Mr. Mack apparently took offense. He wasn’t angry, exactly. You just can’t imagine the gra cious “goodness gracious" getting angry. Aggrieved would be a bet ter word, and he remarked pub licly he would like nothing better than to have his A’s flag down the Yankes in the series then coming up. You can just imagine him say ing to his players. “Now, boys, I’d like to win this series very much. Please do your best, will you?” And the boys, who will do anything for the old gentle man, did just that. McCarthy’s error may not have been an error, but you can second guess it as one. He seemed to be pointing quite obviously to the De troit series, possibly figuring the athletics could be pushed aside with the handle end of a bat. Anyway, he withheld his ace, Borowy, from the Philadelphia se ries for use against the Tigers, with the result the 11-day vaca tion apparently did Borowy no good whatsoever. The Tigers knocked him off willy-nilly. Borowy could have been used both against the A’s and in the series with Detroit without over taxing him, and he might have been able to salvage one game of the Philadelphia series, and pos sibly his start against the Tigers. But, as remarked, Barrow and McCarthy had the first guesses. Our second guess is that the first guesses might have killed what pennant chance the Yankees might have had Hold That Line ( SAASmto&ELO > WeSTENUlZCHNEB.

UCLA won only one game last season, but is believed to be strong enough this year to extend the Tro jans. There will be 30,000 in the Min neapolis stands where the Minne sota Gophers will be trying for their first victory over the Iowa Seahawks and to get revenge for, the 32 to 0 pasting taken on last year.

He and Prime Minister Church ill talked at Quebec about ways of gradually turning over responsibili ty and authority for rehabilitation of Italy to the Italian government and agreed that the Allies must see to it that the Italian people do not starve. He said he might have something pretty soon on the matter of getting food to Italy. He and the Prime Minister also talked a good bit about Germany but there was not much new that he could tell. 2.
