Tar Baby, is broke .today, according
to his manager, Joe Woodman. Yep,
"Tham's" balance sheet with the
world, in its assets column, includes
a large cipher, or practically that
Dust-laden guide books show that
Langford is now 36 years of age and
that he has been knocking rival
maulers for goals since he was 16.
In that span of years the man with

few of them easy, while scores have
wisely drawn the color line when of

SOME NEWSPAPER GOSSIP THE
HERALD AND THE "HALL"
The Herald is still printing the
"come across" stories about the
Rowe-Eaton squabble. Every day
since the civil service commission
gave out its decision that Mrs. L. O.
Rowe, head of the welfare bureau,
had only borrowed the money which
Mrs. P. W. Eaton, a city employe,
says she "had to come across with,"
the'- Herald has been hammering at
Mrs. Rowe to return the "borrowed"
The amount was $543, which Mrs.
Eaton said she gave to her superior
in instalments as the price of her job.
She voiced her belief that the money
was used for Thompson political pur
poses. The Herald hopped on the Rowe
Eaton matter because it gave that
paper a chance to hit the mayor.
Never friendly with "Big Bill" be
cause he was not a newspaper
mayor, the Herald turned bitter when
Dr. T. B. Sachs resigned as head of
the municipal tuberculosis sanitarium
and then committed suicide.
Sachs was a good friend of Julius
Rosenwald; Rosenwald is said to
have heavy holdings in the Herald.
Some say this gave rise to the Her
ald's stand against the mayors
