NEW YORK. Jan. 20.—<A>>—
Around one of the local hot
stoves the boys axe having a lot
of fun making winter book on
the umpire-baiters among base
ball managers. . . Right now
the price on Frank Frisch of
the Pittsburgh Pirates and
Leo Durocher of the Brooklyn
Dodgers is 6 to 5 and take your
cherce. ... No bets are being
accepted on the Chicago White
Sox’ Jimmy Dykes because he
has no rivals in the American
The matter was brought to
the attention of the hot stovers
by a story Durocher has been
telling here and there. When
Casey Stengel came back into
the National league as manager
of the Boston Bees, President
Ford Frick immediately an
nounced the penalty for being
thrown out of a game would be
$25; when Durocher became
manager of Brooklyn, Frick
raised the penalty to $50; now
Leo says with Frisch back he
hears Frick is going to make it
60 days.
Last year Durocher was
thumbed out of eight or nine
games and was fined on five
of the occasions. He ought to
do at least as well this year,
but Frisch may have more in
Dykes was ousted six times
but provoked fines only twice
and a suspension once. It is
believed here that Dykes’ re
cent disclosure of bets with
Chicago writers that he won t
be thrown out of more than
four games in 1940 is nothing
more than a brazen subsidy.
Stengel for years has been
the terror of National league
umpires and very likely the
champion free-style fancy need
ier of the league. The reason
he lost his title to Durocher
last season was because he sud
denly became subtle. During the
heat of one argument between
the Boston players and an um
pire, Casey sat unconcernedly
on the bench to the astonish
ment of all hands. Finally he
rushed out to the plate, ges
tured violently at the ump (for
the crowd’s benefit) and calm
ly declared, "You’re in great
form today, Reardon.”
Of course, nobody will forget
how, during that 23-inning tie
Brooklyn played at Boston, old
Case ceremoniously called in a
relief pitcher with a flashlight
to show his indignation at the
umpire's not stopping the
game. They banished him that
time, though.

The Lines?
Between the lines of every advertisement you see, you
can imagine these words:
“Thousands of people had to believe in this product
' —and buy it—before it was ready for advertising!”
The fact that a product is advertised regularly
means that a lot of people buy it regularly. The fact
that a storekeeper or manufacturer will join his name
with it in public proves that he thinks it is good, honest
Time was when the slogan, “Let the buyer beware,”
governed buying and selling. But advertising has re
versed that. Today it reads, “Let the seller beware!”
For if his goods don’t measure up, he loses out to
advertised products that do!
