who worked on the Gunnish
car, said the two men were
there between 12:36 and 2:30
p.m. and that when they left
he gave them a five-gallon can
of water. The can was found
near Gunnish's body.

THE PANAMA AMERICAN AN INDEPENDENT DAILY NEWSPAPER
Hunger For Peace Dominates
British Election Campaigning
LONDON, Oct. 23.(UP)Foreign policy is-
sues, especially "keeping us out of war," dominated
the British election campaign today on the eve of
voting for a new House of Commons.
The high cost of living, more socialism, na-
tionalization of industry, housing, full employment
all those issues will help maT-.e up the minds of
the bulk of the average citizens when they vote
But for the first Ume In mo-
dern history, foreign policy ls-
um hare been the major topics
of campaign speakers.
And the Laborlte "warmonger"
attack on Winston Churchill has
been the outstanding campaign
It would take a King Solo-
mon at this stage to tell whe-
ther the Laborites or the Con-
servatives hare won this "war"
issue. Roth sides still consider
It a vital issue. The popular
polls support their judgment.
The latest Gallup Poll on Im-
portant Issues, published today by
the News Chronicle, showed that
those polled placed foreign af-
fairs second In Importance to the
cost of living.
But when asked to list the ma-
jor problems facing the govern-
ment of today, "keeping us out
of war" ran away with first
place. Thirty-nine per cent poll-
ed put it at the top. <
If the Labor Party should
squeeze through to victory in
this election, despite signs to
the contrary now, there is little
doubt that it will claim the vot-
ers have decided Labor is the
peace party and the Conserva-
tives the war party.

at Willlngbourough today that

"The Labor government has
shown that It knew how to be
firm without being provocative,
conciliatory without being weak,"
On the Conservative side, the
Tories are stumping the country
reminding the voters of the
withdrawal from Iran. Derek
Walker-Smith put It this way at
Cromor last night:
"The country which matched
itself successfully against Hit-
ler has become the plaything

ball of Farouk (King Farouk of
But behind the shouting, the
charges and counter-charges on
foreign policy, there Is no fun-
damental split on International
Issuesjust argument over the
conduct of foreign affairs.
And when the arguments are
further analyzed, they all re-
volve around Churchill, who will
be 77 next month.
Labor has been capitalizing on
the feeling in many quarters that
"Winnie's the man In time of
war but not in peace."
Churchill winds up his cam-
paign with a major speech to-
night at Plymouth, where he is
likely to try to bury the "war-
monger" campaign charges.
The location will be appropri-
ate. He will be speaking in be-

The occasion will give Chur-
chill a major opportunity to

have been In the forefront of
the "warmonger" campaign.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 23Bow-
and-arrow hunters by the tens
of thousands are taking to the
woods this autumn as short
field archery seasons open In
many game preserves of the
United States and Canada.
For several decades the pop-
ularity of archery has been
steadily Increasing, says the Na-
tional Geographic Society.
In the United States archery
as a hobby and a sport dates
from 1828 when a group of en-
thusiasts organized in Phila-
delphia. The shift from target
tournaments to hunting began
In earnest about 1940. Today
archery ranks among the top
ten sports In popularity.
From the Stone Age to the
16th Century and later, ar-
chery was a serious business
to many of the peoples of the
world. Food, clothing and
home defense depended on
skill with a bow.
Cave men scratched crude pic-
tures of archers Into atone cav-
ern walls in France and Spain.
The Assyrians and Babylonians
left sculpture to prove their
prowess and the Egyptians re-
corded theirs in hieroglyphics.
Thousands of Persian arrow-
heads have been found on the
battlefield of Marathon, north-
east of Athens, Greece. The Scy-
thians probably Introduced the
bow to the Greek who passed
it on to the Romans. The Goths,
Huns and Vandals, with super-
ior archery skill eventually beat
the Romans to the draw.
Primitive tribesmen In many
lands, lacking firearms, still re-
ly on the bow.. An exception is
the spear-carrying aborigine of
Arnhem Land in northern Aus-
tralia, where the weapon was
Nineteen states and Canada
now permit bow and arrow
hunting. Today the field arch-
er's quarry Is chiefly deer, wild
pig, wild turkey, ducks, squir-
rels. and even fish. An occa-
sional moose, bear or mountain
lion is reported.
Modern bowmen claim high-
er target efficiency than their
American Indian predecessors,
but their stalking ability is
sometimes Inadequate. In one
State nearly 4.000 archers took
out hunting permits last year
but only 250 successfully stalked
and bagged their game.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 23 (UP)
Two Republican members of
the Senate Small Business Com-
mittee demanded yesterday that
Committee Counsel Charles E.
Shaver be suspended pending
an investigation of his dealings
with the RFC.
Sens. Andrew F. Schoeppel (R.,
Kans.) and Edward J. Thye (R.,
Minn.) said they were "shock-
ed" at Shaver's admission that
he interceded with RFC direc-
tors last year to win approval
of a $1,100,000 loan for a luxury
hotel in Miami Beach, Fla., and
a $325,000 loan to Mercury Re-
cords Co. of Chicago.
Neither loan actually has
Mrs. Flo Bratton, secretary to
Vice President Alben W. Bark-
ley, also has acknowledged that
she "called the RFC" about the
Barkley told reporters that he
is not ready to discuss any ac-
tion he may take In the Inci-
dent because "I haven't had a
chance to talk to Mrs. Bratton
and hear her aide of It."
But he added that "anything
that she or anyone else In my
office does of that kind la spe-
cifically against instructions.'
Mrs. Bratton, who is vaca-
tioning on her farm near New-
port, Ky., said she acted "as a
personal friend" of Sam Flelsh-
er, a Minneapolis contractor
who hoped to build the propos-
ed $2,500,000 Chalfonte Hotel in
Plans for the hotel were aban-
doned and the RFC loan with-
drawn, in January of this year
RFC spokesman confirmed
that a $1,100,000 loan for the
Chalfonte project was approved
on May 8, 1950, after being re-
jected four times previously.
Mrs. Bratton said, she merely
called the RFC, "on Flelsher's
request," and inquired about
"the status of the loan applica-
tion-" _.t j
Shaver, who also described
himself as an "old friend" of
Fleisher, said he talked to three
members of the since-abolished
RFC board of directors, and urg-
ed them to approye the loan.
He said It also was "personal
friendship" for Chicago attorney
Henry Derringer that led him
to Intercede with RFC directors
In behalf of the $325,000 Mer-
cury Records loan.
He said Derringer had "oft-
en" solicited his aid In behalf
of "small business."
Chairman John J. Sparkman
(D., Ala.) of the Small Business
committee was en route to* his
Alabama home by automobile
and was not Immediately avail-
able for comment.
Thye wired Sparkman from
Minnesota asking an "imme-
diate Investigation" of Shaver's
"No employe of this or any
Senate committee has any right
to engage In such activities and
should he. promptly suspended
when he does," Thye aid.
Schoeppel told reporters that
Sparkman "can do nothing else
than to suspend (Shaver) Im-
mediately and go to the bottom
He said he Is "so deeply con-
cerned that I do not plan to
leave Washington until I am
satisfied that every effort is be-
ing made" to clear up the af-

Foreign students In the United
States meet with "problema of

The living problems often are
serious enough to Interfere with
their school work, says Dr. Rob-
ert A. Poison. Cornell University
professor of rural sociology.
One foreign student, Poison re-

to find a room and landlady who
would do his laundry. That Is the

In support of this statement I
cite the celebrated case of Peo-
ple vs. Fishbein. The defendant
was my old friend Harry Fish-
bein, the New York expert, and
since the case ha dto do with
bridge, the poor People didn't
have a chance.
Flshbern avoided bidding as
long as he could with the South
hand, but when both opponents
bid hearts he felt sure that his
partner had good spades as the
basis of his double of one club.
It was a sound idea, and it had
the additional merit of being
quite correct. (Otherwise I prob-
ably wouldn't have heard about
When the noise died away,
there was Fishbein playing the
hand at three spades from the
wrong side of the table. Only, in

If North had been playing the
hand at spades, East would have

cognized the situation at a I

the king of clubs, and East play-
ed his deuce. West didn't realize
that this was a singleton (al-
though the bidding should have
warned him) so he shifted to the
seven of diamonds.
Fishbein let this ride to his
ace of diamonds and returned
the queen of spades. West cover-
ed with the king of spades, and
dummy's ace won. The two top
lieartds were cleared, and de-
clarer returned to his hand with
the jack of spades to lead a low
diamond towards dummy. It
looked as though the defenders
would take a trump, a diamond,
and three clubs, but Fishbein
had more tha nhls arm up his

mond since that would allow de-
clarer to give up his diamond los-

king of daimonds and returned
the suit. East winning. East led
a fourth round of diamonds, and
Fishbein calmly discarded a club
from dummy instead of ruffing.
East then had to return a heart
or a diamond. In either case,
Fishbein could ruff and discard
dummy's last club. West could
get his high trump but nothing
else, and the contract was safe.

A TERRIFYING STORM OF PASSIONS HATE, LOVE
RICHARD VALENTINA WILLIAM
By Ann MorriJI
Thursday morning, bright and
early, B.H.S.'ers rode sleepily to
Tocumen Airport, to see our great
football team off for Miami.
Twenty-ate (261 Ambassadors of
our Red and White, plus manag-
ers, coaches, Mr. Hotz, and Dr.
Deerlng were ready to fly to Mi-
ami to snow those boys that Bal-
boa High knows how to play foot-
ball as well as they do The opin-
ions of the crowd varied. "Mia-
mi-Jackson to a much larger
school and have so many more to
choose from.'' "Balboa has only
been playing tackle football for
a couple ol years." "They out-
weigh us." "Miami does not have
as good a team this year, we hear,
and Balboa has a better one."
"They didn't teat us by much
last year so we have a good
chance." "We will beat them
good." "You never can tell." "No
matter what, our boys will make
a good showing.' "Thev may beat
us by touchdowns, but they will
never beat us by spirit or sports-
Yes, the opinions were many
and varied but the spirit was
high. Many students had come
to see the team off. The cheer-
ing started early.
Mary Diliion, Nancy Wells, Syl-
via Swift, Beverly Rosan, among
others, were making Mark Mc-
Kee, Bill Altaian, Cialr Oodby,
(our wonderful captain), Dick
Ostrea, BUI Riley and Bill Yerkes
promise to bring them programs
of the "big game. Parents were
there to give last minute Instruc-
tions before the plane left.
Edith Beauchamp was the only
B.H.S.'er lucky enough to go
along, so was the env/of all. Fin-
ally, seven o'clock came and the
great Red and White took off to
play the big game of the year
the Miami-Jackson vs. Balboa
High at Miami Florida. As the
plane left "Balboa High do or
die" filled tne air. Many an eye
shed a tear or two, not because
they were sad t>ut because every-
thing was just wonderful.
Friday word was received
that Floann and Bill Mable,
two populir B H.S. Alumni, had
met the plane and had big
plans for showing the team
Saturday night A.F.R.S. broad-
cast the score as soon as possible.
Many anxljus Zonlans hovered
over radios awaltlmr the news.
Miami-Jackson 26, Balboa 0. at
the half'' was the first announce-
ment anld hearts dropped. How-
ever, the final score was 33-8.
Our team did make a good show-
ingon the field as well as in
the homes and hearts of the peo-
ple of Miami. They know that
the boys we sent were some of the
finest boys thev will ever know.
I am sure when they think of the
game, they will remember a won-
derful experience. They will re-
member the Balboa High 8chool
team with football spirit and
hearts big enough for any school
to the world to admire and envy.
Whether you win or lose, it UUhe
way you piay the game that

BY OSWALD JACOBY
Written for NEA Service
The fatal moment had come.
The discard pile was frozen and
contained nearly 50 cards, in-
cluding about 10 wild cards. The
opponents needed only 50 points,
so there was every reason to be-
lieve that the wrong discard
would lose the pile. And now the
poor suffering Canasta player
had to make a discard from a
hand that was full of dynamite.
This player had four kings,
four queens, two tens, and two
sevens. Nobody had thrown a
king or a queen. One ten had
been discarded, very early In the
hand, by the left-hand opponent,
but nobody had ever thrown an-
other ten. Only two sevens had
been discarded, both by the play-
er at the leftat his two previo-
What would you do in a spot
The kings and the queens were
unsafe, all right. The next play-
er had a pair of each. All right,
maybe you never thought for a
moment of throwing a picture
card. What's your choice as be-
tween a ten and a seven?
When I watched this hand, the
player reasoned as follows: "That
early discard of a ten was prob-
able just bait, thrown in the hope
that I would soon discard a ten.
It's a cinch that the opponent
still has a pair of tens. However,
maybe he had only three sevens.
"He has already discarded two
of them and now doesn't have a
pair. After all. that still accounts
for five of the eight sevens in
the deck. Why should my op-
ponent and I have six sevens be-
So the seven was discarded
and. as I announced to begin
with, the fatal moment had
come. The opponent swooped
down on the pile, and there was
a certain one aide and not so
quiet misery on th* other side.
It wasn't an easy decision to
make, but I think the discard
was against the evidence. If the
seven was safe and the ten was
unsafe, the opponent had discov-
ered early m the hand that it
was safe to discard a ten but had
never tried it again.
He had thrown wild cards, and
he had undoubtedly taken his
share of risks in making other
discardsafter all. you dont go
practically through the deck
without having to take at least
a few risks. Still he never threw
a ten. Instead, he eventually dis-
carded one of only three sevens.
This could all be true, but the
odds are certainly against it. It's
"iuch more logical to believe that
he oDponent finallv broke from

Of HP Traffic Cops
The Cristobal Council, Knights
of Columbus, had high praise to-
day for the cooperation given by
Panam Trailic policemen dur-
ing their Columbus Day parade
in the City of Coln, and tor the
conduct of one unidentified po-
lice officer in particular.
In a letter to Major Pastor Ra-

branch of Uie Panam 'Police
Force, M. S. Brrezlnsky, Grand
Knight of the Council said the
conauct of the officer reflected
"the high caliber of training and
discipline" of the Police.
The officer snapped to atten-
tion and saluted when a U.S. flag
fell to ground from the hands
of a flag bearer who had been
accidentally tripped by a small
boy who darted into his path.
The text of the letter is as fol-
"Through you, the Knights of
Columbus wish to commend the
splendid cooperation received
from the Traffic Division during
the occasion o' the parade and
festivities of October 12, 1951.
"Your attention is called par-
ticularly to tne actions of one
officer who was in the .imme-
diate vicinity when a small boy
aarted from the crowd into the
path of the American Flag-Bear-
er, and caused the bearer and
flag to fall to the ground.
"This particular police officer,

SAFETY SIGNS FOUND CONFUSING
Editor. The Mill Box
The Panama American ,
Panama, R. P. p*
Albrook AFB has a new Ground Safety Officer nowa sell-
admitted high-powered individual who has been making a series
of sage observations In the Daily Bulletin under the heading.
"The Ground Safety Officer Says." All of these quotations are
calling on others to do something or .other toward safety.
As a variation to this theme I would like to point out some-
thing which might require some action on the part of the Ground
Safety Officer himself. Scattered haphazardly around Albrook
especially along Canfield Avenueare large numbers of signs
cautioning vehicle drivers to look out for the "little dears" at
play. This in itself is not so unusualalthough the streets make
poor play-groundsuntil you Observe these signs more ciosely.
They are all of the hexagonal shape universally recognized by
safety engineers and motorists alike as "STOP" ign.
It Is also recognized by moat safety engineers that uniformity
In the usage of signs of accepted shapes adds to the value ot
erecting the sign. Yet on Albrook this value Is lost by using the
commonly accepted "STOP" signs for "Caution" purposes as well
AS for their Intended usage.
My suggestion to. the Ground Safety Officer is to replace
these hexagonal "Caution- signs with the accepted signs of
square shape, and quit confusing the drivers on the base. This
would be a distinct contribution to safety which even,he should

Dear Editor: Balboa, C. Z.
With all of the accidents that have happened during the

1. All trucks be required to carry at least two flares. These
must be set out at a required distance down the highway when
the trucks are forced to stop on the highway.
2. Heavy fine for the offense of parking on the highway.

Drew Pearson says: Why GOP leaders want Gabrielson to
resign; Carthage Hydrocol apparently didn't need the
loan; Jet plane crisis should stop strikes.
- WASHINGTON. There are some interesting backstage rea- I
.'on.' why Republican Senators are so insistent that Guy Oabriel- '.
son resign as chairman of the Republican National Committee,
One is a comparison between the two RFC loans obtained by \
the two chairmen of the Republican and Democratic National "
Democratic Chairman BUI Boyle's loan for American LithofoM
in St. Louis totaled $585.000 a relatively sma.l amount.
GOP Chairman Gabrielson's loan for Carthage Hjfarocol waa
for $18,500,000 one of the bigger loans granted by the RFC.
Gabrielson drew a salary and fees totaling $201.000 from
Carthage Hydrocol during the period that.he *ras either Repub-'"1
llcan National Commltteeman from New Jersey or Republican Na-
He has been president of Carthage Hydrocol since April $6,
1M6. and did not resign after he became natlon.il chairman.
Boyle claimed he received a fee of only $1,250 from American
Llthofold, though upon becoming Democratic Chairman he sold
his legal practice to his partner, Max Sisklnd, who paid him in
The Democrats, many Republican* feel,could score some points
on this comparison during a campaign
Actually, the RF& was established for the purpose of helping
companies which could not obtain loans from private banks, and
American Llthofold might have been in that category.
However, it was not so much the RFC loan as the way Amer-
ican Llthofold wangled huge printing orders lrom the Govern-
ment and paid government officials on the sio> to get those or-
ders that made the public hold its nose.
But what worries Republican Senators aoout the Gabrielson
loan is that Carthage HydrocoJ appeared not to have needed a
loar ac all.
It owners include some of the most powerful companies in
the U.8.A., with top credit ratings, and the ability to borrow mil-
lions from the banks, insurance companies, or the public.
Instead they used politics to get an RFC loan of $18,500.000.
They retained Gabrielson. then a rising figure in the Repub-
lican Party, Just at a time the Republicans were nearlng their
peak power in the 1946 election and appeared sure winners of the
Presidency In 1B.
Carthage Hydrocol was organized to make gasoline out of
methane gas, which is the dry part of natural gas and which never
before has been used for gasoline.
However, the experiment, after four years operation near
Brownsville, Texas, is reported unsuccessful and GOP leaders now
fear a Democratic charge that the blue-chip backers of the con- .
cerr. are trying to let Uncle Sam share in their loss through .,
Chief backer of Carthage Hydrocol is the Texas Company, on
of the largest oil companies in the world with gilt-edge credit.
Another owner is United Gas, a holding company controlled
by Electric Bond and Share, one of the biggest power companies
in the world. ".
Another owner is Stone and Webster, hitherto never known
to have been hard up for cash.-
Other owners are the Niagara Share Company, the Forest Ol. .
Corp., La Gloria Corp., the Chicago Corp., Newmont Mining (a
J. P Morgan concern. Western Natural Gar. and White, WelaV^
and Co., the Boston bankers.
Other backers are Henry L. Shatluck, Boston blue-blood fin-
ancial leader: Robert Wlnthrop, Boston banker and insurance ','.
mogul; William A. Coolidge. another blue-chip banker; and N. C. -
McGowan, one of the biggest gasmen in the business.
The amazing thing is that this group, with unlimited resources.,. ,'
not only wangled an RFC loan, but when the loan's first instal-
ment Was due, wanted to postpone payment.
, It was last month, when the first $250,000 was due to be re- '
aid the RFC. that Chairman Gabrielson approached Stuart Sym-
ington and asked for a postponement. *
Later, when Symington demurred, the Instalment was paid, "
but this postponement move left Gabrielson open to a possible -
charge that his blue-chip barkers wanted to let Uncle Sam hold
These are some of the background factors which have caused ->
GOP leaders to demand the ousting of genial Guy Gabrielson.
JET PLANE CRISIS urn
In fairness to the employes at General Electric's Lockland, *
Ohio, plant, lt should be noted that the recent work stoppage ...
thete which delayed the production of jet engines was not due *~
to a strike but to shortage of materials, which In turn was due
to an Alcoa strike.
The fact is that the UAW-CIO unit at the Lockland plant ha* -
a no-strike record for which they are to be congratulated.
Meanwhile, however, the entire jet-engine production picturt, ~
continues bad, largely because of labor troubles at various fac-
tories making key parts.
The strike at the Borg-Warner plants Is one of them.
What this means In Korea bolls down briefly to this: Our
Saare are the only Jet plane we have that ca-j match the Mig-
Yet today our Sabres are outnumbered five to one by the Mig's
due to lack of jet-plane production. Meanwhile, we are losing
mere jets in Korea than we are producing.
While there is usually something to be said on both sides in #,
labor disputes, and while corporations have netted tremendous,
profits as this column has frequently reported nevertheless
neither labor's case nor management's case Is important enough
to hold up jet production at this critical time.

Hitherto, the Army has wanted most Air Force planes operat-

But now the two top Army commanders in Korea have told
General Bradley that strategic bombing has crippled the Com-

Willie Mays, the 20-y ear-old Ne-

only one season of organized
baseball, yesterday was named
National League Rookie-of-the-

hails from a poor family, was vot-

aya is undoubtedly the young-
est and most inexperienced play-
er ever to get this honor. The
only other rookies considered
were Boston Braves pitcher ('net
Nichols, Giants pitcher George
Spencer and the Brooklyn Dodg-

When Mays was pot into cen-

after seeinc him in action for the
first time. "There is the player
who will win the National League
pennant for us."
For a time it seemed that this
was not destined to be. Mays fail-

to the plate in the majors. He
had only one bit, a game-winning
homer off lefty Warren Spahn, in
his first 23 times at bat.
However, when Willie started
hitting, he fairly set the league
on fire. He wound up the season
with a .274 batting mark which
included 20 homers, five triples
and 22 doubles among the 127
hits he connected. He also drove
in 68 runs.

As Redskin Coach

NEW YORK, Oct. 23 (UP)
The big news in pro football cen-
tered aruuncl tne Washington
HeosKins. Owner George Mar-
shall tired Human Ball as head
coach ol the Hedskins and re-
placed him wiih Hunk Anderson
but Commissioner Bert Bell
vetoed the deal. Bell ruled that
Anaerson Is still under contract
as line coach for tre Chicago
Bears and therefore was ineli-
gible for the Redskin job.
Marshall, upon hearing of
Bell's ruling, appointed backneld
coach Dick Todd as temporary
head coach.. Marshall says he
still hopes to get Anderson.
Ball says he will remain with
the Redskins as a scout.
Anderson says he was promis-

blames George Halas for block-

Halas won't release him from his

He was tired of sports page

petition for manpower is es-

ies often carry off the flower

"You have to devote more

Next weekend will have strong bearing on the outcome of
several conference races.
Colorado and Oklahoma have a showdown battle in the Big
Seven. Colorado already has three conference wins, while the
Sooners have one. Michigan, the Big 10 leader with two victories,
faces an improving Minnesota. Northwestern and Illinois, each
with one conference victory and no losses, both play Big 10 op-
ponents with the Wildcats meeting Wisconsin and the fllni go*"

In the Southwest Conference, Rice meets Texas and Baylor
goes against the Texas Aggies. Both Rice and Baylor have one
win and no losses in conference play. League-leading Texas
Christian plays an intersections^ match with Southern Califor-
Georgia Techwith four wins and no loasesplays an up

game. Tennessee, with two league wins and no losses, plays a
non-conference game with Tennessee Tech.
Stanford, the beat remaining hope to catch Southern
Cal in the Pacific Coast Conference, will try to make It three
straight league wins against Washington. Southern Cal has
four conference victories, the last of which was that upset
That game is causing considerable stir among West Coast
fans. There are charges that the Trojans deliberately injured
California's star halfback, Johnny'Olszewski.
Southern Cal Coach Jess Hill says they are false. '
"I don't see why I should even comment on such absurd
declarations," claims Hill. "When Olszewski was hurt the first
time, he was tackled by Pat Cannamela alone. Again, when he
was injured at the beginning of the third quarter, he was tackled
by two or three men.
"The fact that Olszewski was hurt," says Hill, "In my estima-
tion was due to the fact that he was hit very hard and very

bear him out.
The movies of the Drake-Oklahoma A-and-M struggle may

Whitworth says he didn't see the play on which Brigi.t was
Injured, but he adds. "I thought we played a hard, clean aggres-
sive game all the way."
Drake Athletic Director Jack McClelland has asked the team's
coaches to submit written reports on the Incident. McClelland
says the reports will be turned- over to the school's athletic
council for further action.
Brlght's college football future depends on the results of X-
rays. Drake team physician, Doctor Robert Mason, says it might
be possible to patch up the Bulldogs' star for the game with
Iowa next Saturday, but he adds, "nothing definite will be
known until after the X-rays."
Getting back to Big 10 football, It's easy to see why Ohio
State has a reputation as a coaches' graveyard.
The Buckeyes dropped a 92-10 decision to underdog Indiana
last Saturday. That game took Indiana Coach Clyde Smith off
the spot, but his place was quickly filled by Woody Hayes of
Before the game Smith had been the target of alumni
criticism and of mysterious pamphlets on the campus asking
"what's wrong with our team.'* Now the ery is directed at
So far there have' been no suggestions Hayes make this his

of criticism indicate that the courtesies due a new coaeh are
One of the main points of criticism is that Hayes depended
too much on Vic Janowlcz, last year's Helsman Trophy winner.
One writer, noting that Janowlcz had played 52 minutes or
more In States three previous games, wrote, "A valuable piece
of bric-a-brac like Vie should be an offense man only."
Hayes says he has no alibis for the game. He points out
that Indiana recovered four State fumbles and that those fumbles
'hurt" his team.
Turning to pro football, George Ratterman, the former New
York Tanks star who Jumped to the Montreal Alouettes this
fall, la reoprted ready to return to the States after this season.
A spokesman for the Montreal club says Ratterman Is not
satisfied with the Canadian League.
Business agent Joe Ryan quotes the former Notre Dame
player as saying "Apparently I haven't been able to adapt my-
self to tha Canadian game. I think it's better for everybody con-
cerned that I call things off and go back home."

MERRIMAN WINS 4 POSITION
.22 SHOOT AS BALBOA WINS
OVER ALBROOK-CUURND TEAM
Although Bill Merriman of Albrook-Curundu fired ST4 over
the four position smallbore rifle course at Far Fan yesterday
to take home the individual gold medal, the Balboa Gun Club
team eked out an 11 point victory to beat A lb rook Caranda.
Balboa's 1412 for an average of 353 was fair shooting against
Albrook-Curundu's 1401 for second place.
The Balboa Gun Club's No. 2 team with 1389 was ettt-
dlatanced. Only three teams took part in this match, which la
practically a record low attendance for these monthly matches.
In second place behind Bill Merriman was an old-timer who
mude quite a record as a .30 caliber marksman with the old
45th cavalry. This was Sgt. Edwin Budd, who fired 371 for
Balboa. Bill "Rifle" Jeffrey had to be content with third piece
as he fired 369. Some people hinted that winning e pistol me-
dal last week must have gone to his head.
in the elections held last week at the annual meeting held
in the NFFE Clubhouse on the Chiva Chiva trail, Mr. N. I. DtH-
man of the Balboa Gun Club was elected President of the Canal
Zone Shooting Association for the coming year. 8turtevant tedd
