They Include the American Red

The move consists of a change-
over from the Schafer prone
pressure system to the back pres-
sure-arm lift method, an adap-
tation of the Nielsen system used
for years hi Denmark and Nor-
way and other European coun-
The shift was partially the re-
sult of efforts by the Armed
Forces to find a way to treat
large numbers of nerve gas vic-
tims effectively in event of an-
other world war.
Tests showed the back pres-
sure-arm lift method produced a
markedly greater exchange of air
in the victim's lunga than the
Schafer system.
This is a highly Important fac-
tor in reviving persons in deep
asphyxia such as could be pro-
duced by nerve gas.
A basic difference In the two
systems Is that the back pressure-
arm lift forces air into the lungs
as well as expells it.
To accomplish this the person
giving the treatment kneels at
the victim's head.
The victim is laid on his sto-
mach with his arms folded under
his head and his face resting on
his crossed hands.
The first-aider's initial move-
ment Is to place his hands on
the victim's back just below a

press down by easing his weight
forward onto the hands.
This expells the air from the

This sucks air Into the lungs.

Is performed rhythmically JJ1

This method differs from the
Schafer in that the first-aider
kneels over the victim's legs in
the latter system, and alternately
wings his weight forward onto
his hands placed on the lower
part of the victim's back, and re-
leases it.
This method forces air from

Hitler's Mountain Lair
Doomed By Bavarians
MUNICH. Dec. S (UJ.)
Adolph Hitler's favorite Bavarian
hideout and love nest at Berch-
tesgaden will be torn down to
prevent it becoming a shrine to
Germans who look back on Naz-
ism as Germany's day of glory.
The decision to demolish the
barren, roofless, 15,-room Berg-
hoi high on the Obersalzberg
mountain was reached Jointly by
German and American author-
ities, it was announced by George
N. Shuster, U. 8. land (state)
commissioner of Bavaria.
The Alpine homes of Martin
Borman. the only top Nazi leader
whose fate is still shrouded In
mystery, and hulking Hermann,
Goering will be dismantled also.
The Berghof, a hotel-like Ba-
varian-style building nestling
high above the valley of Berch-
tesgaden, but below the 1.800-
foot high "Eagle's Nest" where
Hitler brooded alone over his
1,000-year Reich, was where Der
Fuehrer received Prime Minister
Neville Chamberlin of Great
Britain, Premier Eduard Daladier
of France, Benito Mussolini, and
the Duke of Windsor, then Prince
of Wale;
It was also Hitler's favorite re-
laxation spot and the place he
spent quiet hours with his mis-
tress, Eva Braun, whom he final-
ly married lust before they both
died In his underground Berlin
bastion In 1945.
American and Bavarian of-
ficials decided to tear down the
homes of the highest Nazis after
it was discovered that local
guides were giving tourists nos-
talgic. pro-Nazi lecture a they
toured the ruins.
They abo were selling tiles
from the bathroom of Adolf
and Eva a souvenirs, and stone
from the building Itself for
about $1 apiece.
The fate of the Eagle's Nest
high on the Kehlsteln is still un-
der negotiation, Shuster said. He
added that the agreement so far
reached with Bavaria provides
for the destruction of five build-
ings: the homes of Bormann and
Goering, the Berghof, another
seldom-used Hitler residence,
and the barrack of the special
SS guard.

ORS were shown in a gala preview at the Army-Navy Club,
young residents of Panama, above, gathered around for an
advance look. Unlike many artists. "Julie" as she signs
her pictures Is not disturbed when strangers gather to
watch the strokes of her brush.
Like most good watercolorlsts, she works rapidly. At the
preview arranged by her parents, Commander and Mrs. Ed-
ward R. Halloran of the 15th Naval District, opinion was di-
vided as to whether her landscapes, seascapes or street
scenes best depicted the spirit of Panama.
She paints all three with an equally sure line, using
birds, small boats or human figures chiefly as accents. Her
treatment of the massed structures of a city skyline, and of
industrial subjects such as the locks showes an un-
usual talent for choosing the basic lines and omitting un-
necessary detail.
Almost half of the paintings were sold during or after
the preview at reasonable- prices ranging from $8 for un-
framed matted pictures 18 x 24) to $20 for those of the
same size framed under glass. There were also a few larger
ones framed at $30. '
Those who missed the preview, and others who may be
interested, are invited to see, the collection at the Halloran's
quarters on the Naval District reservation If they care to

Insolence since they were put on

The state game and fresh
water fish commission, prodded
by tales of 'gators roaming free-
ly about folks' back yards, voted
to permit shooting them between
Oct. 1 and Feb. 1.
The alligators, a Florida trade
mark, were put on the protected
list seven years ago because they
were becoming extinct. However,
Ross Allen, state reptile experts,
aald they are abundant now and

breeding anyway and dll keep

State game wardens had re-
ported they've been kept so busy
chasing alligators away from
peoples' homes that they have
had little time for other work.
Recently, a Coral Gables child
was attacked by a 'gator.
"Since the hunters have not
been able to kill them, alligators
have become unafraid of man
and even are apt to attack him,"
Allen aid. "By permitting them
to be hunted, alligators again
will become afraid of man."
He said the smaller reptiles,
though continued on the protect-
ed list, will "learn to be more
respectful" by seeing the larger
ones killed.

Gallery Presents
Monotype Show
NEW YORK. Dec. S (UP.)
"Art for Interior" is a new gal-
lery with a purpose. It proposes
to serve the public in two ways:
1) by embellishing homes
through the use of works of art;
2) by advising people how best
to invest their money in art.
The gallery Intends to bring
out some young painters. It open-
ed Its season with a one-man
show of Leroy Davis.
My art is akin, In spirit to the
small-sized work of such French I
Dainters as Manet, Degas. Vull-'
lard, Bonnard, Rouault. Matisse
and the American painter De-;
mouth," the young painter said
at the opening of his first New
York oneman show. "I myself am
working in small size. My pic-
tures are Intended as satirical
comments on society."
Davis rejects all vanguard art.
"The trouble is," he aald, "art
dealers always want something
'new.' They should understand
that there has not been anything
'new' since 1915. There can be
nothing new any moreevery-
thing in the way of novelty has

"The only new thing In art can
be a new medium. Such a new
approach is the monotype. That
is the medium which I use and
which, for some unknown rea-
son, so far has been largely ne-
Monotypes are prints done on
a metal plate that is passed
through a printing or hand press.
The subject is painted directly
in oils at a single sitting. The
method makes the production of
only one copy possible. Thus,
every monotype Is a unique print.
"Abstract and non-objective
art is largely doomed," Davis ad-
ded. It Is slowly wearing out. Peo-
ple will return to something more
substantial. I believe they will go
back to the old masters. That's
what I am doing myself."

Stream actually branches, or If

Driven by the winds, turned by
the spinning earth, the water of
the North Atlantic slowly re-
volve, always clockwise as view-
ed from above. A great swath of
tropical water pouring north
from the tip of Florida forms the
western rim of this giant wheel.
Behind It, trade winds pile
Caribbean Sea waters through
the Yucatan Channel Into the
Gulf of Mexico, raising It approx-
imately seven Inches higher than
the level of the Atlantic Ocean
off the east coast of Florida.
Escaping the overfilled basin,
water rushes through the Straits
of Florida betweenKey West and
Cuba. It spills out at 14 cubic
miles an hour, 1,000 times the av-

er at its mouth. At this point the
current measures about 15 miles
across, from a quarter to a half
mile deep.

the Bahamas. Great volumes of
water well up from beneath the
rim of the weed-matted Sargas-

wider and deeper.
Following the edge of the con-
tinental shelf, it brings whirling
storms to Cape Hatteras. Beyond
this promontory, turning east-
ward, the current's swiftest part
still flows at four to five nautic-
al miles an hour.

Alan Ladd Picture At Central Theater
ALAN LADD gets plenty of opportunity to uw hi8 gun and
hli flits as a Postal Detective on the trail of a million dollar
mall robbery In "Appointment With Danger," Paramount'i
fast-moving action thriller now at the Central Theatre.
Betty Sings, Dances, Loves
In 'Meet Me After The Show
At Lux Theater Thursday
Paramount'! "Appoint m e n t
With Danger" will be the next
attraction at the Central The-
ater on Thursday. With Alan
Ladd antf Phyllis calverl co-
starring, the films has been hail-
ed by preview critics aa a real-
istic, action-crammed drama
dealing with a million dollar
postal theft
The picture throws an excit-
ing spotlight on the postal In-
spection Service, the oldest and
most relentless of all government
Investigating agencies. Based on
actual episodes from secret post
Office flies. "Appointment With
Danger" was made with the full
cooperation of portal and local
police officials.
Alan Ladd appears In the role
of a tough and tenacious Postal
Agent and the story follows his
efforts to solve the murder of a
fellow officer. The crime's sole
witness Is a nun, played by Miss
Calvert, and her Identification
of one of the killers leads Ladd
to a gang of thugs who are plan-
ning a spectacular mall robbery.
Ladd wins the confidence of
the hoodlums and takes part In
the daring hold-up with them to
get the evidence for their con-
viction. But a change In plans
almost costs him his life, as well
as that of the nun, who had been
kidnapped during the getaway.
According to .advance audi-
ences, this has all been exciting-
ly staged In a rapid and closely
knit series of sequences that In-
cludes chase scenes, savage fist
fights, sultry romantic Inter-
lude and the spectacular robbery
of the climax. Additional authen-
ticity was gained by on-the-spot
filming In Indiana's Gary and
La Porte, and Chicago.
An exceptionally fine featured
cast Is headed by Paul Stewart,
who scored such outstanding
successes In "The Window" and
"Champion," and It includes viv-
acious Jan Sterling and Jack
"Appointment With Danger,"
which wa directed by Lewis Al-
len and produced by Robert Fel-
lows, shapes up as Alan Ladd's
greatest action adventure.

of his aides came along and gave
Santa some help. And after a
merry chase the wayward animal
was collared.
This diagram will enable you
to emulate Santa and his helper
in their problem. Cut out and
mark paper counters ot Santa,
his friend and the deer. Place
them in their respective positions
on the diagram.
Counters move one square at a
time, vertically or horizontally,
but not diagonally. First move
Santa, then the villain, then the
helper; then the villain again and
so on. Each counter must be
moved each time the turn comes.
The animal is caught by hav-
ing Santa or the helper move
into the same square with It.
Naturally, the animal would not
move voluntarily into the square
occupied by Santa or his helper.
After you've played the game
a* described, try these or other
variations: (1) Move the deer two
squares at a turn: (2) Have
Santa attempt the catch alone.

After-Dinner Party Tricks
Put Yourself in Santas Boots
GAG. E(l)
HEIGHTEN the fun of your
holiday party with these sim-
ple tricks which can be done
while seated around the dinner
Produce a length of candle and
a glass of water.
Light the candle. In-
vite a guest to place
the candle in the
water so that it will
float upright and not
fall over dousing the
flame. The guest
will probably fall.
Now produce a
second piece of can-
dle (explaining that
you must use an-
other piece because
the wick of the first
is wet.) Light it and
place it in the glass
of water, and it will
float as shown at
The secret la to
prepare your second
candle In advance.
Hollow out space in
the bottom of the
candle so that it will hold a nail
of sufficient size to keep the can-
dle upright In the water.
For another trick that will
baffle your friends, place three
empty glasses in front of you, the
center one mouth up and the
other two bottoms up. Now take
one glass In each hand and turn
the two over. Repeat the move-
ment after shifting hands to dif-
ferent glasses. Then do it a third
tune with the result that all the
glasses are mouths up.
There are two features to. the
trick: First, the simple method
whereby It's done. Second, the
ruse by which the
performer makes it
unlikely any onlook-
ers can repeat It
In turning the
glasses, first turn
the one that la
mouth up with one
that is mouth down.
Do this a second
time, turning a
mouth up with a
mouth down; then
turn the two that
are mouths down to
make theni mouth
up. By following
this rule you can
do the trick in three
rapid moves.
W | e n someone
else wants to try
n. arrange the
glasses so that the
center one Is mouth down and
the end glasses mouth up. From
this position it is impossible to
bring all three mouths up on
three moves by turning two
glasses on each move.
It is seldom anyone detects this
bit of deception, as he simply re-
members that two glasses were
one way and one glass the

i -riiNK you've got a lot of Christmas problems?
1 How would you like to be in Santa's shoes?
Just think of all those letters he gets. His depart-
ment store visits. That big toy plant he runs at the
Pole. And to top them all, the strenuous rounds of
Christmas Eve.
What a man! And he's a puzzle expert to boot.
In fact, there isn't anyone we can think of who
faces v> many puzzling situations.
Last week, for example, Santa received tola letter
from a little girl who had moved recently. "Dear
Santa," the letter read, "so many of the houses in
our small development are alike I'm sending you
this diagram to keep you from getting lost
"Our house is north Of the Browns, south of the
Greens, west of the Whites and east of the Blues.
Our southeast corner touches the Caokleberrys, who
are northwest neighbor of the Whlffletrees. I'll be
looking for you about 9:00 o'clock. Love, Suzanne."
It would have been a lot easier for Santa, of
course, If Suzanne had marked her house with an
"X," but Santa's used to oversights like that, and
to be sure, it wasn't long before he had the exact
location fixed. Which house Is Suzanne's? (Santa's
solution (1) is at the end of this column.)
Letters aren't the only source of Santa's difficul-
ties. Every now arid then his wits get a real work-
out In department stores m well. Take Molly and
Dolly's poser, for instance:
At first these two were Wy any. Thej held each
others' hand and stared. To stimulate conversation
Santa asked their ages. And to show you how com-
plicated even a simple little question like that can
get, this Is what Dolly replied: "Vm three times as
old as my sister will be when Molly is three times
as old as she is now."
"And how ola is Molly" but Santa never fin-
ished his sentence, for another pair of little tots
crowded in, and Molly and Dolly moved on.
Mathematical wizard that he is, Santa thought
for a second and Immediately Jotted the ages down
so he wouldn't forget them. (See solution 2.)
Well, the two youngsters who crowded in were
most uncommunicative as so many children are, so
Santa thought he'd break the ice with another lead.
"Do you nave any brothers and sisters ?" he
"Oh, yes, 1 have twice as many sisters aa
brothers," Anne replied, and Andrew, her brother,
chimed in, "I have five times aa many sisters as
"Let's see, how many children does that make In
your family In all?" Santa was about to ask, when
jimney crickets, the tots heard their mother call

Minors Fail To Agree On '52 Broadcasting Policy

Adopt Rule Opening Way
i To Up' Coast League
( oil MBl "s. Ohio. Dec. 8The Minor Leagues have fail-
i ed to free on a 195Z broadcasting and telecasting policy.
In a bitter session at the Minor League meetings at Columbus,
Ohio, delegates defeated an amendment which would have cur-
tailed airing of Major League games in Minor League territory.
Senator Edwin Johnson, president of the Western League,
aid the Justice Department had told him the restrictions would
be in restraint of trade.
Johnson proposes that Major League clubs not be required
to curtail broadcasting or telecasting. Instead, he wants the
. Majors to pay half the income from such rights into a Minor
League fund.
The money would be alloted to Minor League clubs which
could prove their attendance had been hurt by broadcasting or
The Minor Leagues also adopted a rule opening the way for
the Pacific Coast League to gain Major League status.
An amendment setting up an "open" classification in the
Minor League structure was adopted by unanimous voice vote.
Minor League seeking higher classification may do so now by
meeting certain requirements set up by the Majors.
None of the Triple "A" leagues, including the Pacific Coast
League, now can meet the 12 provisions set down. But the door
now is open.
Minor League officials voted on several other amendments.
Thev defeated a proposal to eliminate the Major and Minor
League player draft. They passed a proposal to reduce the
' Major League player limit from 25 to 23. They also favored in-
. ereing the number of players who may be optioned from 15
to 17.

Greenberg Vetoes Proposal
to Remodel Tucson Field
Manager Hank Greenberg of the
Indians vetoed a proposal from
Tucson. Ariz., that the training
field there be remodeled. The
Tucson directors wanted the
field moved 75 fert further from
the stands so that more field
boxes could be constructed. This
would make the distance to the
fences less than 300 feet. Green-
berg said too many balls would
be lost in batting practice, ad-
ding: "We Btlll have guys who
can hit a ball farther than that."

There is little in the static prose that Is reminiscent of
Hemingway, Faulkner, or even Gaylord Hauser, yet a reading
of the story of the Nine Frustrated Docs, who bloated their
scalpels trying to give a quality of humane consideration to
New York boxing, is enlightening and somewhat shocking.
This reading comes in the form of minutes of meetings of
the Medical Advisory Board, created by Gov. Ton. Dewey on
Sept. 19, 1948, to co-operate with Col. Eddie Eagan's boxing
commission in an effort to guard against Injuries and minimize
ring fatalities, then occurring in Increasing numbers.
Throughout these papers, hither to hurled In confidential
files (for reasons which have yet to be made clear) runs a note
of continuous despair by the physicians in their attempts to
get the ear, the Interest and harmonious understanding of
Eagan and his associates, thereby leaving an Impression of ob-
structionism, if not defiance.
A most strange situation, since the safety factor was one
of primary concern to the commission, and the board, composed
of competent professionals had, as the minutes disclose, taken
over the Governor's assignment with profound seriousness and
devoted hours of conscientious labor to the problem.
"It was inexplicable, indeed," agreed the source from which
I received the minutes, "and we could only conclude that the
commissioners had no faith in medical practice. Having reach-
ed this conclusion we decided at one time to call the whole
thing off."

In the minutes of the very first meeting of the board on
Oct. 8, 1948, the matter of medical fees for examining boxers
was introduced and this curious lien appears. "Col. Eagan
told the meeting that a high medical fee could ruin the sport,
and he asserted the fact that a boy wants to fight is in Itself
a good indication that he is healthy." (Ed. Note: There is no
evidence in the minutes that Eagan or either of hi* associates
attended any subsequent meetings.)
By December, 1948, the board had formulated a set of reg-
ulations and standards for the commission's consideration and,
it was hoped, its adoption with the notation the problem de-
manded further research and study and additional recommen-
dations were to be expected.
The program called for complete laboratory and clinical
firocedures as well as sensible suggestions having to do with; re-
nforced ring mats, glove weights, taping of hands and -im-
proved physical inspections, and altogether reflected much
earnest and expert thought. By comparison with existing pro-
cedures the program was refreshingly revolutionary.
From the minutes dated March 25, 1949:
"The chairman of the board (Dr. Frank R. Ferllano) re-
ported that he, Dr. John McLean and Dr. Charles Musdcato,
had had an interview with Col. Eagan. On this occasion the
chairman of the boxing commission had expressed the opinion
he might not accept the new regulations as the;:might hurt
It was at this meeting that the physicians,began to get the
idea they were wasting their time. The minutes continue: "Un-
der the circumstances the board feels it has proceeded aa far
as it can and until action is taken by the commission there la no
need for the board to hold further meetings."

Nevertheless, the board persisted, further meetings were
held. Apart from boxing, the physicians were Interested In an
over-all study of head injuries. It appears there la not much
reliable information available on this subject. Research and
study were proposed in knockouts Immediately after such ter-
minations. A suggestion that Madison Square Garden make
a room available for this purpose on fight nights was rejected
by the promoters* "W
"What we had in mind," my source explained, "was, among
other things, to try to learn Just how long a knockout fighter
should remain inactive. We don't know yet whether It should
be one month, two months, or six. And until such a study is
made, based on immediate reactions and periodic checks, ;we
can't be medically certain."
Apparently it had been the commission's custom at one
time to bar knockout fighters for three months, for this state-
ment appears in the minutes of Feb. 25, 1949: "Dr. McLean re-
commended for the present that the commission eontlnue its
three months custom until contemplated research shows what
rule and what period of time may be necessary and sound."
The board, meeting July 29, 1949, heard one Dr. Schlif,
assigned by the commission for prebout examinations, speak on
concussions. "Usually the patient (by commission orders?)
Is sent to the hospital for three weeks." Dr. Schlff, the minutes
contlnue.""sald he doesn't think the commission should let any-
one who has suffered a concussion box for six months."
On Feb 23, 1950, Lveme Roach of Plalnvlew, Tex., died as
a result of head Injuries suffered in his knockout by George
Small of Brooklyn In the St. Nick's ring.
One week later the New York Boxing Commission adopted
the safety code of the Nine Frustrated Docs ... all but three
of whom, by then, had resigned in dismay and disillusionment.

'Financial Collapse9 Of Minor League Baseball Predicted
Major League Broadcasts
To Minors Called 'Cause9
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Dec. 8.(UP)The man
who heads it predicts the financial collapse of Minor

ball is stopped in Minor League territory.

point where we are saturating
the appetites of fans for base-
ball. That is fundamentally
wrong." '
Charles continued the argu-
ment by citing two Instances
where Minor League clubs pros-
Kred despite competition from
ijor League broadcasts.
One concerned the Olass "B
Davenport club of the Three-eye
League. Da*enport finished last
In 1051, competed with four dif-
ferent Major League broadcast*,
yet outdrew every other club In
the league.
Another case, said Charles, was
Houston of the Texas League. It
finished last in 1950. But It had
a good year at the gate, and
Houston fans had the choice of
three different Major League
broadcasts each day.
Trautman called these "excep-
tional cases" and Insisted most

Trautman expressed that view
to Minor League presidents at a
dinner meeting in Columbus,
Ohio. And Trautman says Major
League dub owners are to blame.
He scores them-ior eliminating
restrictions on broadcasts, re-
strictions that stopped Major
League broadcasts within a 60-
mlle radius of a Minor League
park: That same restriction set
up territories in which only cer-
tain Big League games could be
This rule went by the boards,
says Trautman, because Major
League owners wanted to avoid
trouble with the Justice Depart-
ment in Washington.
"And," says the Minor League
boss, "the Minors are going to
suffer for it."
One radio station sports di-
rector Bert Charles (of WV-
KO) In Columbus asked
Trautman If he didn't think
smarter promotional policies
could save the Minor Leagues.
Charles wanted to know if Traut-
man thought sharper promotion
might offset broadcasts of Maj-
or League games.
Trautman said It might work

entire brain trust will attend the
minor and major league meeting
en masse in hopes that someone
among them might come up with
an idea that will lead to a sen-
sible trade. President Lou Perlni

"We'd like to close something."
Qulnn said, "but we haven't seen
any offers worth nibbling at yet.
There were a lot of rumors float-
ing around about some of our
boys, but there wasn't word of
truth in any of them."
"You mean the ones about
Earl Torgeson and Warren
Spahn?" Qulnn was asked.
"That's right," he replied.
They always seem to be Includ-
ed in everyone else's trades, but
they're top quality players and
if we ever should let them go.
it will be only for players of
comparable ability. All the trade
stories I've read concerning them
give us utility men in exchange
for regulars. We want regulars,
too. We've got all the utility men
we need, and better ones than
we've been offered."
Dislikes Trade Talk by Phone
While Qulnn hopes that some
sort of trade action might de-
velop at the meetings, he never
expects anything to happen be-
forehand. The Brave general
manager does business on the
telephone When he has to, but
prefers to alt down face to face
when he works on a big deal.
Nautrally, he will not pass up
a trade that looks good, whether
It's negotiated by telephone or
otherwise, but he feels everyone
Involved can do better when they
get together.
"Understand, we're not going
to deal Just for the sake of deal-
ing," he said. "But there's a bet-
er chance of our closing some-
thing at the meetings than any-
where else. At least, at the meet-
ings we might start the wheels
turning on a trade that could de-
velop later."
The Braves will deal off any-
one on their roster except their
oung battery now serving in the
Army. Neither Pitcher Johnny
Antonelll nor Catcher Del Cran-
dal Is on the block. Both went
hito the service last spring, and
while neither was expected to be
available for baseball duty until

Sullivan, talking about the
kids one day last week, remark-
ed. "I don't know what we could
get for them, but we wouldn't
trade them for anyone right now.
Both boys are going to be great
ball players."
No Worry Behind the Plate
Crandall's potential is what
keeps the Braves from going out
to make a serious deal for a
catcher. If Walker Cooper and
Ebba St. Claire can hold tip for
another season and a half, the
Braves will be all right behind
the bat. There's no question a-
bout St. Claire, although he was
out for awhile with a broken
thumb last season. Cooper, of
course, isn't going on forever.
Whatever happens, Crandall's ol-
der and wiser by two years than

are Inclined to dismiss It as Just
one of those seasons. They re-
gard Dai's 1MB performance, in
which he bit .363. after a spec-
tacular mid-season bow, as a
more accurate clue to what the
young californian can do.
In. view of Crandall's great

worry about their catching.

The Grand Old Man, the first

Mack was .Mrs. Agnes Simmons,
mother of the famous Mack star.
"Mrs. Simmons, I love your son

The "big deal" between the
White Sox and the Browns,
which Rog Hornsby "announced"
the day his appointment as
Brownie pilot was disclosed dur-
ing the 1951 World's Series, was
confirmed in Chicago on Novem-
ber 27, virtually as the outspok-
en Rajah had listed it almost
two months earlier.
Belated official announcement
of the deal, In which the key men
are Outfielder Jim Rivera and
Catcher Sherm Lollar, was to
have been made a part of the
bids for attention at the winter
meetings by General Manager
Frankle Lane of the 8ox and Pre-
sident Bill Veeck of the Browns.
But the plan to prolong the pus-
syfooting on the already stale
revelation was again upset by the
garrulous Hornsby.
Rog, m his World's Series pop-
ping off, had forgotten that he
had acquired the services of Gor-
don Gdldsberry, long-time Sox
hopeful who had played first
base for Hornsby at Seattle last
season. So Hornsby. In addition
to his routines about Rivera's
potential talents as an immin-
ent Brown, has been- telling how
he also Is going to teach Golds-
berry how to hit major league
The spectacle of Hornsby talk-
ing quicker and louder than Lane
and Veeck has grown more a-
musing than exciting. Moreover,
none of the three fine orators
has revealed how come the Sox
paid a reported $60,000 for Ri-
vera, a .350 hitter, then without
ever dressing him m a White
Sox costume, included him in a

As soon as Hornsby let Lane

making at least the Chicago end
of the announcements Frankle
said that if the Sox had had
Lollar or his equivalent last sea-
son, they would have won many
of the 26 games which they lost
by the margin of one run.
The feeling prevailed In Chic-
ago that the Sox surely have
something coming out of the
transaction and Chicago base-
ball writers, now on the qui vive,
have been instructed to shadow
Hornsby during the Impending
winter meetings.
Lollar appeared in 97 games
for the Browns last season and
had a batting average of .252, his
socking Including a total of 31
doubles, eight homers, and 44
RBIs. Dente was m 88 games for
Washington, and had a batting
average of .237. He knocked eight
doubles and one triple and drove
!jin 28 runs.
The day before Hornsby forced
the confirmation of the player
swap, the Sox voluntarily an-
nounced their exhibition tour
next spring. They will play 33
games Involving their entire
squad and an additional four
matches have been put on the
docket for a "B" team.

Argentine Plans For Antarctic
Exploring Stir World Experts
Argentine plans for the explora-
tion of the Antarctic for the next
open season, will arouse world-
wide political, geographical and
scientific Interest, according to
experts here.
Press reports said that an Ar-
gentine Air Force Antarctic Ex-
pedition will comprise 300 men,
three airplanes and two ships of
the Naval Frigate Heroin and a
sea-going tug Charra. ,
Because of a combination of
aeronautical and marine equip-
ment, geographical experts think
that Argentina will have an un-
firecedented opportunity to gain
aurels in the exploration of the
seventh continent.
The airplanes, according to re-
ports, wilt be specially equipped
with rocks for swift takeoff s from
icy areas. The Argentine flyers
will therefore have the technical
advantage similar tethat which

made the United States Navy's
Antarctic expedition in 1948 and
1947 singularly successful.
The U.S. planes in that season
employed "Jato" Jets which as-
sisted successfully in take-offs
from both the ships and land.
The unofficial reaction of An-
tarctic experts here, to the news
reports of the Argentine project
is as follows, that first, the Ar-
gentine Expedition apparently
will be the largest, best-equipped
ever sent by any South American
country tato the heart of the An-
tarctic, and the achievements,
naturally will be "observed" by
other countries which have ac-
tual or reserved claims in the
southern continent.
Second, that the general area
of the Argentine's projected ex-
ploration is understood to be a
region known to the United
States mapmakers as Palmer
iAnd, and to the British as Gra-
ham Land.
This part of the Antarctic con-
tinent Juts farther to the north
than any other, and is regarded
as the area of the greatest stra-
tegical and political Importance
becuse of its relative closeness to
the South American continent.
Third, from a strictly geogra-
Shical point of view, it was wlde-
j believed until two decades a-
go that Palmer Land might be a
peninsula separated by ice-cov-
ered marine straits from the
mainland of Antarctica.
This hypothesis lost ground
as a result of the flights made by
Lincoln Ellsworth, Commander
Finn Ronne. and U.8. naval
aviators, but has not yet been en-
tirely discredited.
The Argentine airmen will
therefore have an opportunity to
prove or disprove definitely an
old theory that the Antarctica
may consist of two continents ra-
ther than one.

ted States. Soviet Russia, Norway

THE PROFESSIONAL TALKERS put in a hard week.
At the United Nations meeting in Parla, Big Four
representatives got together at the urging of the
world's smaller but no leas frightened nations, and
talked about disarmament.
At Panmunjom, Korea, the United Nations and
Communist truce teanu kept up the same old steady
grind, of teeth.
From all of which nothing much at all emanated.
The yearning for peace has now reached a stage
where the physically powerless members of the Unit-
ed Nations can bring moral pressure to bear upon the
Big Four to drive them into a locked room promis-
ing to talk about peace.
No one seems to expect anything to come of
these talks, bat the fact that the moat mascalar

At the Korean peace talk, where guns have been
booming for a fair proportion of the Korean War, the
process of oriental bazaar-style bargaining advanced
a further arc around the same old what was begin-

Pearsons Merry Go Round
WASHINGTON. -- Behind Defense Mobilizer
Wilson's sudden trip to Key West was not only
lagging production but the possibility that most
major civilian manufacturing, such as automo-
biles, may have to close down in 1952.
For the inside fact is that the government
might have to go on an all-out war footing, with
the manufacture of autos, refrigerators, TV sets,
etc.. banned entirely.
The choice of planes vs. autos was laid down by
Manly Fleischmann. the nation's forthright pro-
duction chief, at a recent secret meeting of de-
fense agency heads.
"If the production of consumer durable goods
is reduced more than an additional ten per cent,
it will be necessary to convert entirely to defense,"
he warned bluntly.
This would mean "abandonment" of the basic
concept of maintaining a substantial level of pro-
duction of consumer durables while at the same
time meeting the needs of the defense mobiliza-
tion program," Fleischmann added.
The production crisis has been caused by short-
ages and strikes at home, plus stepped up mil-
itary shipments to Europe.
The unfortunate fact is that military produc-
tion is lagging dangerously behind procurement
For example, the manufacture of jet planes is
nine months behind schedule. Yet the Air Force
right now has had to revise its earlier schedule
drastically upward because of losses over Korea
and Improvements in Russian planes.
Fleischmann argued that the manufacturers of
automobiles, refrigerators, television sets and
other consumer durables, "on the average, have
already reduced to 60 per cent of their 1950 rates
of production."
"Consumer durables cannot be reduced more
than an additional ten per cent and still pro-
duce at a profit," he warned mobilization officials
at the closed-door meeting.
Fleischmann hinted, however, that a 10 per cent
cut would not solve the problem of material short-
"Further cuts in the production of consumer
durables," he shrugged, "will not release substan-
tial quantities of controlled materials, such as
structural steel and brass mill products."
Fleischmann's problem is allocating scarce ma-
terials such as copper and aluminum, to meet
both civilian and military needs.
He made no bones about this being a tough
assignment for the first quarter of 1952.
"The growing demands of the defense produc-
tion program will probably result in allocations
satisfactory to no one," he predicted gloomily.
Arthur Smithies, economist for mobilizer Char-
lie Wilson, asked whether manufacturers were
hoarding scarce materials. Fleischmann explain-
ed that bis controls program "works on a pro-
duction and not a plant basis," which makes it
difficult to check.
Looking at the immediate future, Fleischmann
admitted that prospects for an "increase In the
supply of controlled materials are not bright.
Shortage of electrical power In the Northwest
has curtailed the production of aluminum. The
problem of financing additional aluminum cap-
acity has not yet been solved. There appears to
be no new solution of the copper shortage."
These are the reasons, complicated by strikes
in defense Industries, why military production la
It means President Truman must choose be-
tween guns and egg beaters on the eve of a
Presidential election. .
NOTE.Mobilization Boss Charlie Wilson s plan
has been to keep the nation's factories producing
civilian goods, and Increase defense production
by expanding and building new plant. The only
trouble has been that this has been too slow to
keep up with the Defense Departments needs.
E. C, Washington, D. C. My brief reference
to Gen. MacArthur's failure to speak to hospital-
ized veterans at Portland. Ore., was mild compar-
ed to the comments of Portland newspapers and
the Portland chairman of the MacArthur Wel-
coming Commltee, a Republican.
The Oregonian, a GOP newspaper, commented:
"The one speech Gen. MacArthur was expect-
ed to make In Portland, left some, 500 patients
of the veterans hospital bewildered and disap-
pointed. Ambulatory patients awaited the event
from the doors of the big hospital. Other patients
crowded hospital windows-expecting to hear a
speech from the hospital's public address system.
The hundreds of patients who could not see the
dramatic arrival waited patiently with bedside
earphones. .....
"The caravan arrived. MacArthur alighted, saw
the cheering patients, some in wheel chairs, with
nurse attendants. He shook hands. Flash bulbs
lighted the scene. -.- -___
Photographers arranged the General, Mrs.
MacArthur, Governor Douglas McKay, Mayor
Dorothy McCullough Lee and dozens of others
into pictorial poses.
"Two generals and two colonels who became
Japanese prisoners on Bataan held brief reunion
with their old commander as shutters snapped.
Then the MacArthur party retired.
"The big hospital buildings," concluded the Ore-
gonian, "where the patients watched behind
closed windows and the bedridden neither saw
nor heard the 'Old Soldier' or his voice, were
silent." .. T^.
Later the Portland Journal, an anti-Truman
Democratic paper, quoted E. C. Sammons,-GOP
chairman of the MacArthur Welcoming Comit-
tee as hating telephoned Gen. Courtney Whitney,
to deny Whitney's assertion that MacArthur did
not know he was supposed to address the hospit-
alized veterans over the loudspeaker.
"On at least three occasions at the hospital the
general had been advised he was expected to
speak over the loudspeaker and Into the radio
microphones which had been set up," the Journal
quoted Sammons as saying. ,
"The original Idea of the general to speak at
the hospital developed In a telephone conversa-
tion between Sammons and Whitney." the Journ-
al stated. ..

And Comm&j
By Victor Riesel
Walter Winchefl In New York
Just one Senator is squashing a new national crime probe
which at least two of his colleagues want tight now.
Apparently the mobs leel the heat's off.
As I swung through the midwest this week, police bomb
squads in two cities were trying futllely to ferret out mobs who
bomb homes and restaurants owned by some union presidents;
the Illinois law officers were cracking a $13.000,000 Capone-syn-
ncate racket; the mouthy little California combine crook. Mickey
Cohen, was about to be sprung" from jail, and Albert (the ex-
ecutioner) Anastasia was still ruling many a .vaterfront.
Yei Colorado's Senator Edwin C. Johnson who, as boss of
the Senate's Interstate and Foreign Commerre Committee, has
all the Kefauver documents and report* and the power to reopen
the probe, "shows no disposition to interest himself" in the re-
surgent mobs, according to one of his fellow Senatorial commlt-
temen who is urging such action.
Back in New York, at least ene union has launched its own
anti-crime committee.
This outfit-, the AFL's Allied Trades Council, with 10.000 mem-
bers in Tulnerable drug, chemical and osmet'c plants, learned
that some of the local hoods were trying to muscle in by threat-
ening minor union officials.
So, in line with the suggestion of Burt Turkus (who cracked
Murder. Inc.), the union's chief. George Barasch. is running down
the Identity of all who threaten his people, getting up their pri-
son and police records, and will relay the data to the union
members and the authorities.
At the same time, to prevent any muscle-men from running
for office in his union and winning by terrorizing voters, Barasch
has an election form for all candidates. On .h!r. for the first
tune In labor history, the question is asked: /
"Were you ever convicted of a felony... or misdemeanor?
Give all details. Including any time you served in any reforma-
tory, jail or penitentiary.'' _
Candidates must have their replies notarized.
Oddly enough, the only union official to nave negotiated a
labor contract with Gen, Elsenhower Is the "Terrible Turk" of
the transport Industry, Mike Quill.
When the General was president of Columbia U., Mike sign-
ed up the maintenance and service people there. On the air the
other night, Mike said Ike dealt fairly with the CIO Transport
When a union writes to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover and
scathingly demands that his investigators "cease" seeking in-
formation from its members (in the course of the pursuit of the
seven missing Communist fugitives), then it.- time for the CIO
national leaders to look close.
That union apparently is one of the few beachheads of pro-
Communists inside CIO today and, so far, haj escaped attention.
It is Local 347 of the United Packinghouse Woricers. The right
to use the CIO label protects it and hurts CIO.

LONDON(NBA)Brig.-Gen. Julius Holmes,
now U. S. Minister-Counselor at the U. S. Embassy
in London, tells the story of how the United
States got Into the field of military government
during World War II
It has an important bearing on one of the maj-
or U. S. responsibilities today, which is In finding
gooa and competent men who can work with for-
eign governments in developing their rearmament
, programs.
The United States has no West Point lor train-
ing diplomats. And such "pro-consuls" as it does
develop have to learn their lessons the hard way,
by bitter experience. '
It was like that in World War II. according to
General Holmes.
After the conclusion of the African campaign.
General Eisenhower received a directive from the
Chiefs of Staff to take Sicily.
The plan for the military campaign was all
worked out in detail. And then General Holmes,
who was on Elsenhower's staff raised the ques-
BERLINAmerican G. I.'s and the smart Ger-N
mans who aren't above making a fast buck at
the expense of the Russian soldiers have a neat
racket in the watch business.
Not having had much experience with wrist
watches, It has taken the Russians some time
to learn that the more jewels a watch has the
higher its price should be.
So the racketeers take nail polish and dob up
the bearings on any old watch they can get hold
of. They open up the case, flash the works and
say. "See. Twenty-one jewels."
BRUSSELSOne of the toughest standardiza-
tion problems that European armies are trying
to solve Is on jeeps.
There are now five different kinds of jeeps be-
ing manufactured, and none of them has rom-
tlon, "What are we going to do with it after pietely interchangeable parts with the original)
we get it?" American models.

Everybody looked up In amazement and asked
General Holmes what he meant.
Well, he explained, here was a good-sized Island
with a lot of people on It. They had to be fed,
the police and fire departments had to be run,
and so on.
"You do that," said General Eisenhower.
"In addition to my other duties?" asked Gen-
era! Holmes.
"Yeh.' said Ike.
And so the Idea of military government was
born. General Holmes sent scouts into the Afri-
can towns to see if they could buy copies of Ba-
edecckcr's guide to Italy, and any other books
on Sicily.
They came back with two.
They served as the basis for seeing what the
geography of the place was, and how it had been
When General Holmes had figured out what
the Army would do with Sicily after It was taken,
he flew to Washington with his plans and got
them approved.
Two days later Maj -Gen John M. Hlldrlng was
assigned by General Marshall, then Chief of
Staff, to open a military government school at
University of Virginia. And so the U. S. got Into
the business.
At the end of the war. however, the school was
allowed to die, and all the civilians who had been
recruited as military governors were mustered out
of the army.
So now the Job has to be done all over again
A contract to assemble 2500 jeeps In a Belgian;
factory has just been let.
It will use components shipped in from the U.S.,
Britain and France, with a few small parts made \
In Belgium.
PARISFew people realize the tough road that
France has come, and the progress made in six
years since the end of the war.
France has met the Indo-Chma threat, and has
been fighting international Communist pgpres-.
sion therewith greater casualties than the U- ;
nited States has had in Korea.
France kicked the Communist Party out ol gov- :
ernment in 1947. Next year the French licked the
Communist coal strike.
France joined the Marshall Plan in 1948 in spite .
of Communist Party intimidation. '
France took the lead in organizing the Western
European Union and joined the Atlantic Pact

man pan to pool Western Europe's coal and Iron

Albrook Plays Santa To Orphaned Children
By M-Srt. W. F. Fitigeraid
Christmas comes early to Al-
brook Air Force Base and the
spirit has already caught on. For
over six weeks now Albrook's O-
peratlon Christmas, the tradi-
tional annual drive to collect
Christmas gifts for the orphan
children, has been under way.
Officers, airmen and civilian
personnel of Albrook have re-
sponded now for three years to
cay "Merry Christmas" to the
orphan children. The plan usual-
ly starts In October or early Nov-
ember, gains momentum each
Saturday as Operation Christmas
teams visit Albrook quarters a-
reas collecting toys, clothing,
canned foods and other contri-
butions which are assembled In
a warehouse for the orphan chil-
dren's Christmas parties.
Probably the most outstand-
ing holiday fe'e Is held each
Christmas time at the Orfelinato
de la Medalla Milagrosa run by
tlie Sisters of Charity and locat-
ed in David. Chlriqui Province.'
The annual party at David is by
no means new to the Air Force,
for it had its start back in the
war years of 1944 and 1945. Air
Force troops then stationed at

David troops pooled their ef-
forts for the first known
Ch-lstmas party at the David
orphanage. When the end of
the war caused the evacuation
of David troops, the tradition
vas carried on by the Air
Force personnel stationed at
Rio Hato.
In 1948 Rio Hato closed and
Howard Air Force Base took over
the Christmas party for the or-
phans. Then, with the gradual
phase down of the Caribbean Air
Command, Albrook Air Force
Bare became the annual Chrlst-

The Christmas seasons of 1948
and 1949 were gay seasons for
the David orphans. But 1950 out-
shone nil. On Dec. 22 a gift lad-
en C-?7 touched the David run-
way and slowly taxied, toward
the waiting throng in front of
the terminal. As Santa Claus In
full regalia emerged from the
shin a buzz of excitement rip-
pled through the crowd. Quickly
the Albrook visitors were whisk-
'ed through the sleepy streets to
th orphanage.
CT"! children were waiting

room waving his greetings they
rose to welcome him and the Air

From then on It was the Chll-

til the last bit of Ice stream, the,
final crumb of an Albrook baked
cake was consumed by the shy,
appreciate orphan children. As a
final gesture the children clust-
ered around Santa in admira-
tion and farewell. When depar-
ture time came, the nuns and the
children exclaimed, "We'll see you
next year, Santa."
The final gift tally totaled
food valued at $1200, including 25
cases of canned milk, 600 pounds
of rice, 8 cases of rolled oats,
500 pounds of sugar and 500
pounds of beans. There were 170
large toys (bicycle, tricycles,
trucks, carriages), countless
small toys all painted and re-
paired by Albrook personnel. In
addition, huge quantities of
clothing were, presented to the
orphan children.
The tradition carried on this
year when an Operation Christ-
mas committee, headed by Lt.
Col. Virginia A. Hardy, was form-
ed m mid October, in Albrook.
Chaplains V. M. Warner and W.
F. Baniak made a flvtag
David to survey the situation and
Inform the sisters that the Air
Force would be back this year.
The visit was not unknown to
the residents of David, for the
next day the story of the chap-
lain's call and the preparations
for the annual Christmas party
appeared on the front page of
the David newspaper.
Now, on successive Saturdays,
Operation Christmas teams, pro-
ceeded by Albrook's 78th Air
Force Band and a loud speaker
system, have visited the quart-
ers areas collecting gifts for the
orphan children. An Operation
Christmas headquarters, appro.
prlately decorated with an iden-
tifying sign, has been establish-
ed in one of the buildings loc-
ated on Albrook's main street. In
this manner, Albrook personnel
returning from shopping tours
can make their Operation Christ-
mas contribution directly to

foods while the busy hands of
Albrook women personnel sort

children. Operation Christmas
will continue until mid-December
when final preparations will be

party at David on Dec. 21.
THE ALBROOK BOY SCOUTS help, too. Here they load

Next day (or rather the tame

this acting business.
On the JOth Century lot Hum-

with an old, character actress
and the director took pains show-

foreign accent. Finally, after 35
minutes they were reidy and
Bogle, who had been sitting in an
easy chair smoking a cigarette,
arose wearily and walked before
the camera. Somebody said.
"Quiet please." Bogie looked sad-
ly at the old babe, twitched his
mouth a couple of times, and
said, "Why didn't you go to trie
"Cut," the director yelled.
Then, "Nice work Bogle.".
the There was a band In the scene
but even these players just went
through the motions. The music,
it was explained, is put in later.
That's providing the director
doesn't decide to just cut it out
About half an hour later, after
more preparations and a cbuple

Finally Lamas got on the

The stooge got np and said in
an authoritative voice, "Quiet

It was a swell trip. Great plane, The shot took less than 30 sec-

So next time you pay for a mo-
