FRIDAY EVENING, JULY 11, 1941
The league game scheduled for
tonight between the Juniors and
the Merchants was postponed on
account of the band concert, which
will be held at the softball field.
However, it looks as though the
rain would have made it impossible
to have played the game anyway.
Joe DiMaggio got a hit in forty-
ninth consecutive game yesterday, j
The game was called at the end of j
the fifth inning on account of rain,
and Joe was very lucky that he hit
in the early part of the game. Only
three hits were made by the Yank-
ees, one of them being a heme run
by Joe Gordon.
The Yankees are three and one-
half games out in front of the other
teams in the American League and
they seem to be pennant bound.
The hard hitting of Joe DiMaggio
seems to fcp pepping up the New
Yorkers and they are hard to beat.
Cleveland has a good average for
the season, but they are having a
hard time keeping pace with the
many times world champions.
Bobby Riggs defeated Don Mc-
Neill in the finals of a recent tour-
nament. McNeill won the national
crown last year, but be has won few
tournaments this year. He, however,
is getting back to top form, and!
may be hard to take in the National.
His match with Bobby went five
sets, and the last set was a 7 to 5

Will Rogers Field
Adopts Slogan of
“Keep ’Em Flying”
Oklahoma City, Okla., July 11.—
There’s a new salutation going the
rounds at Will Regers Field these
days. One hear’s it in the Post Ex-
change, around the recreation ball
and cn the great runways where
army bombers take the air on prac-
tice training flights.
The slogan is “Keep ’Em Flying.”
First conceived in the fertile
brain of an air corps public rela-
tions officer in Washington, “Keep
’Em Flying” has become the motto
of the men who fly and maintain
Uncle Sams ever growing air force.
At Will Rogers Field, new home cf
the 48th Bombardment Group, U.
S. Army Air Corps, the slogan per-
tains especially to the sleek, olive
drab A-20-A bi-metored bombers
cn duty at The base. 'Key must keep
’em flying and they are flying.
In England the pilots say:
“Thumbs Up.’ In France is used to
be “Bonne Chance.” And now in
America it’s “Keep ’Em Flying.”
The slogan, first introduced to
Will Rogers Field in giant red let-
ters on an air corps recruiting pos-
ter, has spread like wildfire. No
longer is it “So long,” or “I’ll be
seeing you.” It’s “Keep ’Em Fly-
The three words have added sig-
nificance to the men responsible
for seeing that more and more fly-
ing cadets are trained to pilot
the endless tream of planes being
turned out at factories and as-
sembly plants throughout the coun-
try. It dramatizes their job and the
job which thousands of public
spirited citizens have undertaken
everywhere. The job cf spreading
the news that Uncle Sam needs pi-
lots, and men to keep those pilots
in the air.
At other bases throughout the
country the words are shouted now
from the cockpits of speedy pursuit
planes to the cabins of the hugh
“Flying Fortresses.” “Keep ’Em Fly-
ing” is the air corp’s slogan.
What goes up must come down,
and what swims out from dry land
must swrim back, unless it is amphi-
bian, as man definitely is not.
Therefore, swim out only half as far.
from f/hcre as you are able to; save
the rest of your steam for swim-
ming back. If you do get out too
far, remember that wave crests al-
ways roll toward the shcre. Float
and rest in the troughs between
waves, then swim like sixty when
a comlber cernes along to carry you
Be a little sensible about diving.-
A swan dive can be a swan song if
the water isn’t deep as you think it
is. Any dive higher than a rowboat
calls for ear plugs if you value your
hearing. The higher the dive, the
greater the wallop delivered by wa-
ter on your ear drums. Plugs may
tee made of wool and cotton mixed
with vaseline. Insert them fairly
deeply into the ear canals. If you
teave a sinus infection or if one or
both eardrums1 are perforated, or if
you; have a discharging ear, gc in
for wading instead or swimming.
Frcm a humanitarian point of
view ,ear specialists recommend
that persons who have had a mas-
toiditis or middle ear trouble give up
swimming, although from a, practi-
cal angle persons who ignore this
advice are prospective patients.
Fungus isnt funny when its ath-
letes feet. The well trod tiles near
swimming pools and showers are
outstanding sources of this annoy-
ing fungus infection. By all means
soak your feet in the antiseptic
baths provided by many pools. Use
cheap, disposable slippers or have
your own pair of sandals or loose
old shoes that will help you fool
