THIS WEEK The Bonus at Last? A Little on Account Teagle Will Sell Oil The Oceans Are Closer Washington reports “payment of the $3,000,000,000 soldiers’ bonus before the end of the nest session Is virtually Arthur Brisbane The Jjeagne of Nations wants us to “clarify our posi tion.” It would be made clear If the President would write to the League of Nations: “Our position Is this: “We are attending to our business, and advise you to do the same. Also, what about a little cash on account of $10,000,000,000 you owe us on the last war?” Walter Teagle, head of the Standard Oil of New .Tersey, disposes sensibly of the suggestion that all Americans should refuse to sell oil to Italy. He says Standard Oil is not in t -e League of Nations and he will continue sell ing oil through his Italian sub sidiary. This is news, important especially to California, where real estate pros perity grows with improved transcon tinental trips. The Santa Fe railroad, with a diesel engine, hauling nine steel cars and using 3,600 horsepower, has cut 15 hours from the running time between Los Angeles and Chicago. Queer things happen in Ethiopia. The Daily Express says former War Minister Fitowrary Berru, in disgrace with the emperor because he spent too much money, walked, as a penitent, into the presence of the emperor, car rying on his back a heavy grindstone, and kneeled down in sign of submis sion. The emperor rolled the stone off his back, meaning forgiveness, and j Fitowrary Berru is off spending money again. Some of our baked potato and “little pig” ministers might try that. Here is war news: . England’s soft-voiced Foreign Secre tary Hoare begs, implores, beseeches Italy to make peace with Ethiopia while there is still time. “Sanctions” have not yet been applied. England and other countries are selling goods to Italy. “While the lamp holds out to burn, the vilest sinner may re turn.” You may see a new kind of “Olym pic game” with long-distance runners wearing gas masks. In future wars soldiers will wear masks and civilians i will wear them. Ability to run in g-is masks will be important. Russia knows that, and “training for the next war” eight men and worn en of the Osoaviakhim (society for aviation and chemical defense) marched 31 miles in gas masks in 10 hours 47 minutes, a world record. General Smuts, minister of justice in England’s Union of South Africa, says: “Annexation of Ethiopia or its domination by a great European power will mean training one of the biggest, most dangerous black armies the world has ever seen.” General Smuts worries about the conquering power of such a gigantic “black army” unnecessarily. One pale chemist inventing a better poison gas, or more destructive explo sives, and a few first-class pilots could take care of any “black army” tHat Ethiopia might send forth. The American Federation of Labor asks American athletes not to attend the 1936 Olyjnpic games, if they are held in Germany. As a reason for “banning German Olympics,” the fed eration says Hitler is crushing labor unions “with blood and fire.” There is a better reason for not holding the 1936 Olympics in Ger many. The chief value of sport is in the fact that manly exercise is supposed, primarily, to develop and Inspire cour age. The spectacle of 60,000,000 Germans cruelly persecuting and suppressing 600,000 German Jews is not exactly a picture of courage. President Roosevelt has said that he intends to keep out of European complications. He will not let Europe complicate our foreign business, mak ing it impossible for American con cerns to operate merely to oblige Eu ropean competitors. In any case our European friends should at least start paying the ten thousand million dol lars they borrowed before asking the United States to lose more money for their sweet sake. Dr. C. H.

She is Hugh Bradley s guest columnist. By MRS. NOBLE KIZER Lafayette, Ind.—When Mr. Bradley asked me to tell, from my viewpoint, how it feels to be the wife of a foot ball coach I must confess I was rather flustered and did not know where or how to begin. The thought of writing a column for a great newspaper audi ence was overwhelming, particularly because there was no precedent for such an article. Then I remembered that wives of professional men had ex pressed their reactions in print before and I did not feel like a lonely pioneer. You see, football coaching is as much of a profession as medicine, law or en gineering, requiring Hthe same special train ing and knowledge— and making for the same problems for the wives. Football is strictly a man’s game or business and a coach's wife is sup posed to be neither seen nor heard during the season. I’ve tried to follow that princi- Noble Kizer. P' c t Purdue, al though there is a leg end on the campus that I was indi rectly responsible for the greatest sea ; son the university ever had. My oldest son, Richard Allen, was born in the morning of the game with Michigan in 1929. That afternoon Pur due went into the last quarter losing by 16—6 and came out of it winning, 30—16, after having scored four quick touchdowns. The team then went on to finish the season undefeated and untied, the Western Conference cham pion. Ever since that time Richard and I have been regarded as unofficial mascots of the team. I have a strong suspicion, however, that the players and coaches had far more to do with the victory than Richard or I, but it’s fun to think that some people actually believe the story. Purdue and football have been con nected with my family for several years now. My sister Esther is a graduate lOttgMKji of Purdue and later emt married Rip Miller, Navy coach, who S played on the line iHL with Noble at Notre Dame on the “Four j: 1H? Horsemen” team of A.A,' 1924,-although Rip and , jLj|, s Noble were two of f s ' the so-called “Seven Mules.” I’m glad that ~ Navy and Purdue do Rjp Mi( | er . not meet in football, for such a game would strain family relations a little bit, I fear. Football coaches are supposed to be pretty grouchy, difficult people during the season, but as far as I know I can’t say that is true. Noble worries, of course, before a big game when the team is not going too well, although he tries to appear unconcerned to me all the time. Wives develop a sixth sense in recognizing danger signals, but I can truthfully say that Noble does not send out an SOS very often. Gridiron Wife Has Some Advantages I thought he was in for an uncom fortable season last year when Rice defeated Purdue in the opening game by 14 —0 and then his old school, Notre Dame, won byll7. In the Rice game Purdue failed to score a point for the first time in 48 straight games and lost its first game to a non-Conference op ponent since 1930, Noble’s first year as head coach. I could almost hear the wolves howling In the distance, but everything was all right when the team defeated Wisconsin, Carnegie Tech, Chicago, lowa, Fordham and Indiana to finish in a tie with Minnesota for the Big Ten championship. Since 1930, when Noble was promot ed from line ocach, he has had few oc casions to Worry. In that time Purdue has won 36 games, tied 2 and lost 6 2of them by 1 point. The players, of course, actually win the games, but I like to think that Noble has something to do with victory, too. There are advantages to compensate for the worry a football coach —and his wife —suffers. I do not think 1 would have seen New York, the most fas cinating city in the world to me, last year or this if Purdue bad not sched uled a gome with Fordham. The fact that Purdue won the 1934 game, 7 —o, made the trip a grand success. MIDLAND JOURNAL, RISING SUN, MD.

Because he felt that the dignity of the club should be upheld at all costs, Bill Terry decreed that all members of the Giants should tip two bits each at meals eaten while traveling at the club's expense last summer. . . .

Although most athletes lose weight during a season of competition, Ted Coy, one of the hardest-working full backs of all time, used to gain five pounds or more each season. . . . Coy, incidentally, never used to dropklok with his toe as do most kickers. He met the ball with his Instep just as if he was punting.

Joseph E. Widener is confiding that he no longer will fight for pari-mutuels in New York and so persons fostering the cause must seek a new angel. Jimmy Archer, perhaps the greatest of all catchers, was one former ball player who had trouble making up his mind which team to root for at the World series.

McCulloch who, in addi tion to being a director in 25 corpora tions and receiver for the Insull In terests, is chairman of the board at the Arlington race-track, believes that the turf needs a Will Hays, a Hugh John son or a Judge I.andis. He says, right ly, that the present abuses of too many tracks and too many racing days must eventually wreck the sport unless some national system of control is adopted. Bill Terry is the easiest on bats of the National league heavy bitters. He uses only three or four a season while Cuyler and Babe Herman each wreck from 75 to 100 bats. That largely is because Kiki and Babe hit numerous balls with the end of the bat while Terry usually connects somewhere close to the trade mark. i / Rubbing the Eyes a Dangerous Practice Mascara, eye shadow and brow pencil if judiciously applied spell glamor, but they’re not the whole | story when the eye question comes up—as it does every time you look In the mirror.
