Big Babe, once a leading man in Brooklyn’s daffiness cast and always a dangerous hitter, had a problem. “Sure, I made mistakes, and so did some other guys, but they usually made me the goat. I didn’t oare. I guess it added color and I never did care what the boys wrote about me. It probably brought me more money, so 1 haven’t any squawk. “But now it’s different. I want to try my hand at managing a club. The only thing is that a lot of guys don’t know anything about me except that they’ve always read I was a little screwy, and I have a hard time trying to con vince anyone that I do .mow some thing about baseball. I certainly ought to. I’ve been playing it long enough.” A peep at Babe’s 800 fruit trees and turkey flock—he sells some 4,500 a year at fancy prices—lends assurance that there was some thin/ in the Herman head during the years he was accused of all manner of didoes on the diamond. The top anecdote, of course, is the embarrassing ‘‘three men on a base” episode at Brooklyn. Babe thinks it was funny, too, but added: ‘‘That story is told over and over, but what happened in the play never is repeated. That was that, despite the fact three of us wound up on third base, my hit drove in the winning run and we won the game. You never hear that part of the story.” Herman, who will begin his third season this year with the Holly wood club, has turned down sev eral minor openings, hoping to land a good spot as a playing manager. If he does, he may prove that he’s one of the smartest “screw balls” in baseball. bullaToliver LEAD GOLF MEET Tar Heel Cards 66 to Set Pace In Western Open; Heaf ner Fires Score of 70 PHOENIX, Ariz., Jan. 31.—(5>)— Two of golf’s young heavyweight stars—big Johnny Bulla of Chicago and rotund Ed (Porky) Oliver of Hornell, N. Y—slugged their -way to take first round honors in the $5,000 Western Open championship today. Noted long-ball hitters, their power off the tees on the Phoenix Country club course paid them dividends worth the No. 1 and No. 2 spots on the scoreboard after a day of sub-par blasting by a crack field. Bulla card ed a five under par 66, with the chunky Oliver turning in a 67. These two big fellows collected 10 birdies between them and through out their rounds consistently were in position to clip par after long tee shots. Bulla never slipped over regu lation figures and got his five birdies by combining accurate chip shots with a fine putting touch. Oliver had one bogey, catching the rough to go over par at the sixth hole. Bulla’s nines were 32-34 as against Oliver's 35- 32. Only slightly off the pace were Byron Nelson, Toledo, O., the Profes sional Golfers association champion; Ben Hogan. White Plains, N. Y., the leading money winner of 1940, and Emerick Kocsis, Lake Orion, Mich., all with S8’s- Nelson was out in 33 and home in 35 as against par of 36- 35, w-ith Hogan and Kocsis having nines of 34-34. In Ihe 69 bracket, and in striking position as the field awaited tomor row's second 18 hole round were Lloyd Mangruoo, Chicago; Denny Champagne, Grand Rapids, Mich.; John Geertsen, Salt Lake City, and Red Francis, Altoona, Pa. No fewer than 16 players were in the 70 and par 71 divisions. Among the 70 shooters were Don Schumach er, Dallas; Clayton Heafner, Linville, N. C., and Henry Picard, Hershey, Pa. The defending champion, “Smiling Jim’’ Demaret of Houston, was one of nine players who equalled par. Sam Snead, one of the pre-tourney choices, and Ralph Guldahl, winner of three consecutive western opens, had 72’s, as did the national open champion, Lawson Little, of San Francisco. Joe Louis Likely to Be Called in Draft NEW YORK, Jan. 31. — <JP) Joe I Louis, the heavyweight boxing cham pion, revealed tonight that there’s a very good possibility, he may do his fighting for Uncle Sam’s army in the near future. His draft number, he disclosed, is 378, “which aih’t very high, is it?” “I got my questionnaire and will send it in as soon as I get it filled out,” he explained. He would not say what status he would claim in submitting his reply. CLUBHOUSE DESTROYED AURORA, 111., Jan. 31.— UP) —A water hazard on the Aurora Coun try club golf course played its usual jinx role today as fire destroyed the 8120,000 clubhouse. With the near est hydrant a half mile away, fire men tried to pump water from the water hazard, but were unable to get sufficient pressure to check the flames. SPIDERS TRIUMPH RICHMOND, Va„ Jan. 31.—UP)— The University of Richmond cagers, led by Jones, who accounted for 13 points, ran over the University of Maryland, 38 to 17, here tonight in a Southern conference basketball game. RECORD LOW GAME CHICAGO, Jan. 31.— (iP) —Willie Hoppe played the record low game of the world’s Three Cushion Bil liards tournament tonight when he defeated Clarence Jackson of De troit, 50 to 8 in 26 innings. It was Hoppe’s fourth successive victory. Boulder Dam is 660 feet in width at the bottom, 45 feet wide at its top, and 1244 feet long at its crest. CAROLINA BEATS V. P. L, 60 TO 35 Glamack Sets Pace for White Phantoms With 20 Points In Southern Loop Tilt CHAPEL, HILL, Jan. 31.— (3>> — Piling up a big early lead and coast ing in the second half, the Univer sity of North Carolina’s basketball team beat Virginia Tech here to night 60-35 for their seventh con secutive conference victory. George Glamack, who led the scoring with 20 points, shot his team into a 10-0 lead with three hook shots and two follow-ups, but lost the range and missed frequently thereafter. Howard was next high scorer with 14 points. Clicking like a well-oiled machine, the Tar Heels ran up a 34-12 lead at the half while Tech missed numer ous shots and passes. In the second half, Carolina's starting offense became ragged and the subs were wild and the Vir ginians, hitting their stride for the first time, played them almost on even terms. Henderson and Rubin, guards, and Montgomery, sub forward, led the Tech rally and shared scoring honors with eight points eeach. WORK ON SHIPYARDS WILL START MONDAY (Continued From Page Our) ! that one of the 25 ships will be built at its home yards as a test, 1 and that the remainder will be con- 1 structed at the yard to be built here. The 24 ships are to cost approxi- ' mately 42 millions of dollars. 1 The site recently acquired in- 1 eludes the northern portion of thg ; Texas company area (site of the Carolina shipyards in World war days) and extending northwardly 1 along the Cape Fear river to Cen- ' tral boulevard in Sunset Park. ' -- ] APPROVED WASHINGTON, Jan. 31.—(JP)— : The senate appropriations commit tee approved today a $350,000,000 1 emergency program for construction of 200 steel cargo vessels. The committee recommended en actment of house-approved legisla tion which would appropriate $313,500,000 to be used with $36,500,- • 000 available from other sources for , building the ships and constructing , new ship yards. ( WAR INTERPRETIVE - i (Continued From Page One) African and Albanian armies still , stand. It was obviously lack of gasoline to keep his air force at work that paved the way for the series of staggering defeats sus tained by Marshal Graziani in Libya. 1 Underscore Conclusion London’s figures on British and . Axis plane losses in January un- , derscore that conclusion. They in- , dicate an 11-to-l ratio in Britain’s j favor for the month. With the , tally from North Africa still in- , complete, the summary said that . 371 planes of the Axis powers w*re j wiped out during the month, as against 32 British craft lost. The figures on the Northern Af- , rican fighting alone make an even , worse showing for Italy. The Brit- i ish claim destruction of 256 Fascist . planes there in the period, against ( only seven RAF machines downed. , And the important part of that , claim, as it tends to indicate Italy’s | desperate lack of adequate oil re- \ serves, is the assertion that 209 of those 256 Italian planes were caught on the ground. t It is hardly possible that could t have happened unless lack of gaso- 1 line, or urgent need for it to power Italian transport units in the re- < treat from Egypt, had not ground- ( ed those 209 planes. They prob- i ably did not take the air because : they could not. 1 Next Big Target Benghasi, major Italian base in eastern Libya, is the next big tar- 1 get of the British westward drive. If it is true that the greatly dwin- ' died and disorganized remnant of the Italian Libyan army lacks mo torized equipment or gasoline, it must make its final stand where it is in the high ground of the Libyan coastal “hump” east of Benghasi or at Benghasi. It could not undertake a retreat further westward beyond Benghasi with out risking being cut to pieces by f st-moving British armored units and air fleets. It is almost certain that British mechanized forces are already sweeping through or around the Mekili crossroads flank of their foe to cut the road west of Ben ghasi. A double reason for that strategy can be seen on the map. It would not only bar what is left of the Italian main army from an attempt to escape westward but afford the Royal Air force new bases in Africa for participation in the central Mediterranean fight with German-Italian air power. There is still another intimation that Italian oil and gasoline shqrt ages are II Duce’s gravest prob lem and that Germany can aid him only to a very limited extent without abandoning her own spring war plans against England. The joint Nazi-Fascist air offensive In the mid-Mediterranean is lagging still. Its scope appears limited strictly to the Sicilian channel. This also appears to be an at tempt to conserve gasoline. 1 Senators Hear Stimson Piea For Aid To Britain Raptly attentive, five prominent senators are shown listening to Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson •is he urged the senate foreign relations committee to support all-out aid for Britain as provided by the Lend-Lease Bill. Left to right are Senators Tom Connally of Texas, Walter George of Georgia, chairman; Hiram Johnson of California, Arthur Capper of Kansas, Robert LaFollette of Wisconsin, and Arthur Van- . denberg of Michigan. | PRESIDENTIAL POWER IN BILL OPPOSED (Continued From Page One) Secretary Cordell Hull once said: ‘This is too much power for a bad man to have or for a good man to want.’” The minority report was signed by Representatives Eaton (N. J., Rogers (Mass., Fish (N. Y., Mundt (S. D.l, Jonkman (Mich.) and Bolton (Ohiol. Two committee members who did not sign the minority report have indicated that they are also opposed to the administration measure. They are Representa tives Tinkham (R.-Mass.) and Shanley (D.-Conn.). Tinkham said they could net support either the bill or the minority report because they believed the proposals of both to be violative of international law. 15 to 10 Since eight signed the minority report, it w-as generally accepted that the actual division of senti ment in the committee on the bill was 15 to 10, although it w'as un derstood the bill was reported yes terday by a vote of 17 to 8. Occasionally, committee mem bers vote to report a bill, simply to get it to the house floor, al though personally not in sympathy with the measure. The report was issued near the end of a day in which Secretary of the Navy Knox said govern mental officials fear that Germany may use gas "in a big W'ay” in its expected spring onslaught on England, and that both Germany and England are "desperately” seeking a new type of airplane which would make "everything in the air obsolete.” The bill was necessary, he said, because it wTould keep England holding off the Nazis while the United States prepares its defenses. Simultaneously, the house rules committee voted with apparent unanimity to give the lease-lend measure right of way on the house floor next week It approved a ‘rule ’ calling for three days gen eral debate, followed by unlimited time for the offering of amend ments. House leaders expected to pass the measure by the end of the week. Two Reasons The minority report said that the house foreign affairs commit tee had been given two reasons for passing the bill: “1—Britain is running short, not of money, not of assets—but of dollar exchange,” and ”2—We need to coordinate British procure ment with our own defense ef forts.” The minority went on to deny that the bill would give England dollar exchange here and said the measure was not needed for co ordination purposes. This bill will net provide any additional war supplies for aid to Britain within the 60 or 90 days of her alleged crisis,” the docu ment said, “unless the President uses the power provided to dispose of part of our arms or our navy, which he and his cabinet officers have specifically denied they could spare.. . There is too much talk of ‘re strictive’ committee amendments. The amendments adopted (with the approval of administration leaders) do not prohibit our con voying merchantmen, do not re quire our Army or Navy officers to determine our own defense needs, do not place a constitutional two-year limitation on the life of the bill.” The word “not” was underscored in each instance. What Bill Does The minority next turned to what it said the bill does do. “Using the slogan of aid to Brit ain,”’ it said, “and under the title of ‘promoting defense,’ this bill gives the President unlimited, un precedented and unpredictable powers—literally to seize anything in this country and to give it to any other country, without limit in law. He may sell or give away our Navy, our planes, our arms, our secrets and use any proceeds from such sales for similar pur poses; he need come to Congress only for appropriations to restore our Navy, our planes, our arms. ‘‘John Bassett Moore, world fa mous authority on international and constitutional law, says: “'The pending bill assumes to transfer the war - making power from the Congress, where the con stitution lodges it, to the execu tive . . . the tide of totalitarianism in government . . . has not only reached our shores, but has gone far to destroy constitutional bar riers. which, once broken down, are not likely to be restored.’ “Remember, we cannot repeal war—we cannot repeal bankrupt cy—and we cannot repeal dictator ship! Under this bill we surrender our democratic way of life now, for fear of a future threat to our democratic way of life. The old est and last constitutional democ racy surrenders its freedom under the pretext of avoiding war, with the probable result that the newest dictatorship will soon go to war.” Next, the republicans submitted their own proposals: “We have offered in committee,” they said, “and will offer again on the floor, the following con structive, democratic program to aid Britain and to keep us out of war: "(1 A $2,000,000,000 credit to Britain, to be used in this country for purchasing arms when her dol lar balance for this purpose is ex hausted, requiring reasonable col lateral security if available. “(2 Permit the sale by our gov ernment of arms to Britain only when our highest Army and Navy officers certify in writing such arms are not necessary for our na tional defense. “<3 A one-year time limit on all extraordinary powers. Congress meets again next year and can easily extend the time limit if our interests require it. “(4 Provide that no vessels of the United States Navy shall be disposed of without the consent of Congress. “(5 Prohibit the use of our ports for repair bases for belligerent ships. We must not bring the war to American ports. “(6 Prohibit the use of Ameri can vessels to transfer exports to belligerents. “(7 Prohibit the convoying of merchantmen by our Navy. One sunken ship might plunge us into war.” CHURCHILL TOURS PORTSMOUTH BASE (Continued From Page One) At one pause on his tour, Church ill sacrificed half of one of his famous cigars to a dockyard work er who decided he’d like it as a souvenir. With Hopkins and Mrs. Church ill. the Prime Minister climbed across the docks ..id delved through the bomb-hit areas of the city. Everywhere, crowds greeted him with shouts of “good old Win nie and his invariable reply was “good luck to you all.” Earlier, Churchill visited South ampton. There, he asked a crowd of civil defense workers: "Are we downhearted?” “No” they thundered. Speaking to the city council and Lord Mayor, Churchill declared the events in Libya and Albania had shown “the rottenness and weakness of the Nazi-Fascist re gime so far as Italy is concerned the Fascists were forced to bring in the Nazis to rescue and rule them.

Lyons, 22-year-old negro, was given a life sentence today for killing a farm couple with a shotgun and set ting fire to their house, burning to death their four-vear-old son. A $-115 robbery was the motive. Sentence was fixed by a district court jury which convicted Lyons of murdering Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Rog ers and son, Dean, at their home near Towson Dec. 31, 1939. Another son, Glen, nine, fled the flaming home with his year-old sister in his arms. F. R. SAYS NATION IS READY TO TAKE OVER ANY FACTORY (Continued From Page One) was considering inclusion of such a requirement in all future con tracts. but that the matter was “still in the making.” He said, too, that the department was not ready to recommend “coercive” legisiation to curb labor • disputes on defense projects. Asked by Hillman The labor clause was put into the Ford contract, Patterson tes tified under questioning, at the re quest of Sidney Hillman, associate director of the office of produc tion management. Harry H. Bennett, personnel di rector of the Ford company, said Ford made this statement in ad vancing his offer: “There ought not to be any quib bling about bidding on defense con tracts. All companies ought to do what the government wants them to do without making profit. No body should make any profit on defense production anyway. It’s profit in the manufacture of war materials that causes war.” The War department announced last night that it had .awarded a $10,298,128 truck contract to the Fargo Motor corporation of De troit rather than to Ford, whose bid was $250,000 lower. Officials said this was done because the Ford company had taken excep tion to a provision which had been included in all of the department’s invitations for bids since Novem ber 17. That provision stated that the bids must be subject to a cir cular signed by General George C. Marshall, chief of. staff, saying that all work executed under the contract should comply “with fed eral statutory provisions affecting labor wherever such provisions are applicable.” 1 FRENCH SITUATION NEARS NEW CRISIS (Continued From Page One) deplored the failure of Marshal Petain to get together with Laval more closely than was indicated by their recent talk.)

Collections totaled $9,665,968.87, compared with only $8,229,645.33 in January, 1940. Increases were shown in virtually all items which generally are con sidered barometers of business. The sales tax jumped from $1,395,435.80 in January, 1940, to $1,566,768.11 this month; the franchise tax from $338,343.78 to $746,594.19; the auto mobile license tax from $3,478,334.98 to $3,913,172.96; the gasoline tax from $2,51,636.85 to $2,458,722.99.

Hillman entered the hospital Jan. 7, and was under tre: tment more than three weeks. 5 AMERICAN OFFICER HURT IN AIR RAID (Continued From Cage One) such raids were made on the East Midlands, southern and southwest England. There were many more attack ers in the air today than on the two previous days of before-dark assault. They followed one another at short distances to form wave attacks similar to the method fa vored heretofore at night. At times today bursts of machine gun Are were heard from low flying planes apparently trying to shoot down London’s barrage bal loons. Of the three London hospitals damaged, one received a direct hit. The government acknowledged damage to other buildings and a small number of fires, but said the number of dead and wounded was "not large.” Other bombs fell in a London square—further identification was not permitted—and in surrounding streets, wrecking two shops and heavily damaging several others.
