Manager Gabby Hartnett of the
iiiicago Cubs, heading for his 19th
season in the majors, said today

ROOKIES TO TRY
PASADENA. Calif,, March 4.—(Ah
-Much as Manager Jimmy Dykes
would like to see his Chicago Whitq
Sox beat the Chicago Cubs in their
exhibition tour beginning March 14,

man, will be tried regularly at the
hot corner, Dykes said, with Jimmy
Webb working at shortstop and Don
Kolloway at second.
CAREFUL FELLER
FORT MYERS, Fla., March 4.—
tb-Oscar Vitt, Cleveland manager,
is so fearful Bob Feller might hurt
his pitching arm in the Mareh 17
Ali-Star game at Tampa that he
said today he would appeal against
using the Iowa youth more than
one inning.
“That will be much too early to
ask Feller to bear down the way
he naturally would in a game of
that kind,” declared Vitt. “I asked
Bob how he felt about it, and he
said he thought one inning would
be his limit.”
RAINED OUT
TAMUA, .March 4.—iJP)—The first
time in three years, rain washed
out a drill session for the National
league champion Reds today.
An all-night downpour made the
field too soggy for morning work.
But, under a hot afternoon sun
three infield crews cavorted through
routine pepper-ball and later took
turns at the plate. Long-range
honors went to Frank McCormick
and his unrelated ‘‘namesake,”
Mike.
First “game” of the season is
scheduled tomorrow, between regu
lars and a Yannlgan nine — and
there is prospect of a double-header
if Manager Bill McKecbnie can
string together four full teams.

MURRAY IS GIVEN
SON, $400 A WEEK
(Continued From Page One)
Robert S. Burns and Milan Medi
govich.
Coupling his decision with a criti
cism of the polo-playing Mdivani,
Judge Dockwieler said:
“It is most singular to note that
he would spend substantial sums
for distant relatives and friends
abroad but, with respect to his own
flesh and blood, he made no con
tribution for many years, other
than a few paltry dollars he gave
to his wife for their son’s needs.
“This is indeed something the
ocurt can hardly understand, for
which the defendant gave no ade
quate explanation.”
Miss Murray sued Mdivani for
$1,000 a month to enable her to
establish a home for the son who
was given, under a New York court
order, to neutral persons until she
could maintain a suitable home.
The blonde Miss Murray testified
she spent all her funds in a battle
to save the boy’s life during a
critical illness three years ago. She
had complained that Mdivani dis
sipated her funds whilo ther were
marired, and that although she
was worth $3,000,000 in 1926, 10
years later she had spent three
nights on a bench in New York’s
Central Park penniless.
DONATIONS MADE
TO FINNISH FUNDS
(Continued From Page One)
through last Thursday $4,100 had
been received in North Carolina and
had been forwarded to the Finnish
embff;sy.
The campaign for funds is en
tirely a voluntary one, Marshall
pointed out, and provides indivi
duals with an opportunity “to aid
our little sister democracy in its
fight against the aggressive force of
a dictatorship.”
Finland, he pointed out, of all the
nations which borrowed money from
the United States during the last
World war has kept its promise of
repaying that debt as it fell due.
Contributions to the fund, he said,
will be received at the Peoples
Savings Bank and Trust company,
the Wilmington Savings Bank and
Trust company, the , Security Na
tional bank and at the Star-Kews
offices.

“I hope I never have to go
through that feeling again,”

was scared.. We would stand

Mrs. W'assil Katalinas, who

“It was awful. We thought
it was the end of the world.”

ACTION OF NLRB
UPHELD BY COURT
(Continued From Page One)
dually, it granted the employe
signers a five per cent wage in
crease and other benefits and bound
them In return not to strike or to
demand a union agreement.
The Labor board, ruling in a pro
ceeding started by an AFL union
before the contract was signed, or
dered the company to desist from
giving effect to it and to bargain
with the union upon request. The
firm fought the order principally on
two grounds:
1- That the board failed to make
the employes who signed the con
tract a party to the action.
2. That the complaint on which
the board was acting made no alle
gations against the contract, which
had developed afterwards.
The court, in a 15-page decision
by Justice Stone, said on the first
point that the board’s function was
not to adjudicate private rights
but to effectuate the public policy
of the Wagner act and that in its
proceedings there was ‘‘little scope
or need for the traditional rules
governing the joinder, of parties in
litigation determining private
rights.” On the second point, the
court held that the negotiation of
the contract was a continuation of
the unfair labor practices alleged in
the original complaint.
"Here the right asserted by the
board is not one arising upon or
derived from the contracts between
petitioner and its employees,” Stone
wrote. “The board asserts a public
right vested in it as a public body,
charged in the public interest with
the duty of preventing unfair labor
practices.
‘‘The public right and the duty
extend not only to the prevention
of unfair labor practices by the em
ployer in the future, but to the pre
vention of his employment of any
advantage which he has gained by
violation of the act . . . Obviously
employers cannot set at naught the
National Labor Relations act by in
ducing their workmen to agree not
to demand performance of the
duties which it imposes . .

"Build-Up" Good News
For Suffering Women
Much of women's periodic dis
tress may be unnecessary!
Many who suffer from headaches,
nervousness, cramp-like pain, other
symptoms of functional dysmenor
rhea due to malnutrition are helped
ed by CARDUI.
Main way it helps relieve periodic
distress is by increasing appetite
and flow of gastric juice. Thus it
k
often aids digestion; helps build
strength, energy, resistance to pe
riodic disturbances.
Others find help for periodic dis
comfort this way: Start a few days
before and take CARDUI until "the
time" has passed. Women have
UBed CARDUI for more than BO
years.
