Sgt. Joe Smith,
Somewhere, U. S. Army. Dear Joe: I think I can guess where you are now. You are in the Pacific area. Frank Strafaci sent Joe Dey a box of old golf balls used by fellows out there, and you’re the only fellow I know who can do that to a golf ball- You al ways did seem to think that the guy who could slice the big gest divots out of a ball won the game. \\ ell, I suppose you started the new Year with a bang, and that the bang ended it for a Jap. I know you never would shoot unless you knew you were going to hit 'what n 1 rnarl uf tltirl T lninnr _ are not aiming at tin cans now. You haven't missed much in the way of sports here lately. The* held the bovvr football games las1 week, and there were two or three surprises. Southern Cal read the script wrong and walloped Wash ington, and Louisiana State would n't believe what happened to it cfore it real];, happened and knocked off the Texas Aggies. The Aggies had won during the regu lar season. Those reverse plays get you dizzy. The baseball players still are dribbling into the seivice day after day. and if it keeps up the Presi dent had better not show up to throw out the first ball next season or this'll make him pitch the whole game. Branch Rickey got his name in the papers again by saying pro football was liable to steal the show from baseball if baseball didn't wake up. Of course base ball could snuff out pro football merely bv declining to rent out the parKs. but Mr. Rickey says he wouldn’t like to take that step. That's real altruistic of him, as when you invite somebody to use your parlor and ht starts to steal your best girl you usually take steps. You know, one. two, three, kick, and if your aim is good that should be enough. There hasn't been much boxing' activity hereabouts lately. They nearly had a fight the other night, but the Navy weighed anchor on Coast Guardsman Georgie Koch an. who was to have met Jake Lamotta and pulled him out of there. Well. Joe, there isn’t much more news. Gil Dodds got the Sullivan award. The A.A.U. gave him the job of shadowing Gunder Haegg last summer and he did fine at it.

I “ENEMY AGENTS MEET I ELLERY QUEEN” | Manor BEN JONES WORKS MAGIC WITH NAGS Bv SID FEDER NEW YORK, Jan. 4—IJR—'The best trick was lost from Prof. Ben Jones' bag of Missouri magic this year, but the prof just stepped up front and center and showed the folks there’s more than one way to pull a rabbit orl of a hat—or make a hoss run fast. The Prof, naturally is plain Ben Jones from Parnell who can work more magic with the oat-burners than the fellow used to do sawing the lady in half before vaudeville became slightly extinct. Early last season when Whirla way, Ben’s half-million dollar ace, was retired to stud after winnihg only $250 for ihe season, you could almost hear the boys snickjw that now the Prof wouldn't be such hot stuff. On top of that, Ocean Wave sprained his ankle on the eve of the derfcj and Sun Again, a last minute scratch from the 1942 run for the roses, didn’t, come around for last spring’s races. These as sorted aches and pains gave plain Ben the year’s hard-luck racing championship in a breeze. You wouldn't have given a losing daily double ticket at Longacres on his chances of being up among the year's top trainers. But ihe Prof has a lot of stunts in that collection of Missouri mag ic, and so when all the returns got in today, there he- was with the year’s money-winning cham pionship for trainers for the sec ond time in three years. Not only that, but the $26T,9i5 his gallopers u'on in 1943 gave him $1,206,591 for the four years since he took over the conditioning of Warren Wright's Calumet Farm—proving he wasn’t kidding when he told Wright, “you breed ’em; I’ll race ’em.” both came out on top. Me and my shadow, eh Joe? Let me hear trom you soon, will you Joe? I know it is hard for you to write, but if I know you, you are getting up at 4 o'clock in the morning and getting your quota of Japs before breakfast, as you never could see any sense in sit ting in a blind all day. They had the best run of ducks the past season they’ve had in years, and [ certainly missed you And them, too. Will wiite again soon. Your pal —Whitney. VILLAGE THEATRE Hewes Bldg.

FRI.-SAT., JAN. 7-8 MANOR THEATRE Wildcat Cagers Defeat \ Soldier Quintet, 21 To 16 -+-—-—___ Hanoverians Rack Up Sec ond Win Of Year In Thriller By BILL McILWAIN New Hanover High School’s/fight ing Wildcats opened up their 1944 cage competition by downing a fast 53rd Coast Artillery club from Kure Beach, 21-16 in the high school gvm. This affray, the second win of the season for the Cats, was one of the most exciting tilts to take place in the Hanover gym in some while. All the elements of a foot ball game, a bull fight and a good basketball game marked the hard fought contest. Hyma of the Soldiers racked up the initial score of the engagement as he whipped in a looping hook shot. Diminutive Doug Pridgen, the clever set shot artist of the Wildcats evened the count by drop ping in a crip shot. The Artillerymen forged into the lead when Hollingsworth and Welch registered field goals. Pridgen put the Cats back in the scoring with a free throw. Rogers, the Kure high scorer, sank a field goal to give the Military hardwooders an 8-4 margin. Beak TSantes, hus tling pivot man for the schoolboys made good a foul shot to end the first quarter with the Soldiers hold ing a 8-5 advantage. TSantes took charge of the Han overian’s scoring and racked up five points in the second heat while the Artillery hoopsters were only able to tally two points on foul shots by Welch. The half ended in a 10-10 deadlock. J —:_ - -- —J -- times bordered on actual combat checked the scoring attempts of both quints iA the third period as only three points were registered. TSantes drove home a fine pivot shot for the Wildcats' tw'o points, while Trask tallied on a charity throw. At the end of the third quarter the score rested at 12-11 with the high schoolers on the big end. In the final period the fireworks of the evening really opened up. Both teams put on a wild, rough and clever splurge endeavoring to gain a victory. The scrappy Kure Beach outfit went into the lead as Rogers dropped in a shot. Lanky Red Mayhan entered the game for the Wildcats and gave them a 14-13 advantage with a beautiful long shot. The score became knotted again at 15-15 wThen Trask of the Artillerymen made a field goal and Bill Aula of the Cats made good a free throw-. Ths--Hanoverians gained a two point margin when A1 “Haircut” Collie, who played a bang-up ball game Brroughout the entire tiff, sank a circus shot w'hile at top speed. Rogers of the Beachers threatened the Wildcat lead as he tossed in a foul shot and brought the game to a 17-16 standing in favor of the Cats. Here ‘ Battling Bill” Auld insur ed the locals of victory by looping in a beautiful shot from near the half court line. The night’s scoring ended when Mickey Kelly. Hanover guard, whipped in a crip shot to give the high schoolers a 21-16 tri umph. -V Camp Davis Cagers Stage High Scoring One - Siders CAMP DAVIS, Jan. 4.—Continu ng the fast pace that has charac :erized tournament play for more han a month, Camp Davis batta iion teams staged a trio oi games last night with one-sided wins ba ng the. keynote. A new high was established when the 207th Group rolled up 55 to 22 for the 247th. Every winning performer tallied in this contest. Friedman and Guiney with 14 and 12 points respectively led the. at tack while Roll’s 11 tallies repres ented half the loser’s output. The 3rd Tow Target doubled the ■core of the 139th Off. team in pre- j failing. 42-26. Twenty points by Ross, center, was the individual Eeature herein. Seven of Ross’ teammates entered the scoring polilmns. King, losers’ guard, net ted 15 points. Well-balanced scoring strength enabled the 490th to chalk up a 35 20 triumph over the AA Board. Al though Shaughnessy’s seven mark er were tops his aides, Jones, Le vine, Brewster, Cashlee, and Erew ster, all figured in the final result. SOLDIERSARE READY FOR MANEUVERS (Continued from Page One) landed, they will be resupplied with ammunition, food, gasoline medical supplies, and other ma terials necessary for a tactical operation, by TCC planes. Casualties, both real and simu lated, will be evacuated by trans iinrt nlanes. Units of a provisional tactical air division composed of fighter bombers, light and medium bomb ers and other combat planes will be used in reconnaissance, aerial bombing of key points, and in strafing enemy ground elements of the airborne and troops carrier units engaged in the maneuvers, j as well as for aerial combat. They also will provide fighter cover for the troop carrier elements in transporting the airborne troops. Civil authorities in the maneu ver area have ordered blackouts tor the nights of January 5 and 5 from 9 p.m. until 2 a.m. to as sure as near combat conditions as possible for the maneuvers. Every Style Of Grappling To Take Place At Thalian Jack Fitch—UNC Jack Fitch, who starred at wing back for Carolina as a freshman and soph, is winning laurels in a new field. The Etna, Pa., V-12er, who did not go out for basketball last winter due to a broken ankle, is holding down a regular guard berth with the White Phantoms, who will open theiy conference season at Virginia Wednesday night. A speedy, flashy floorman, Jack is also tie'd for third high scorer on the squad. TODAY, TOMORROW (Continued from Page One) We had no alliance before this war. The grand alliance which is now fighting this war did not exist before this war. If Mr. Hard’s ba sic truth is true or basic, it should have followed that out not having alliances, our shunning them as “poison." should have, as he says, helped in “uniting the world.” But what actually happened was exact ly the opposite: Owing to the fact that Britain, Russia, China and America were isolated from one another and not allied to resist them, Germany, Italy and Japan formed an alliance for aggression which very nearly conquered most of the world. The lack of an al liance against aggression invited the formation of an aggressive al liance. • * • We may go furtner and say that we must maintain 1he grand alli ance of the United Nations until the time comes when present ene mies can safely be admitted as equal members in universal so ciety. If we do not do this, then what we shall get is not Mr. Hard's utopia of a world without alliances, but two or more danger ously antagonistic coalitions or al liances. Mr. Hard may feel he can still indtilge himself in the illusion that the United Stater needs no al lies. But he must not imagine that any other country could or would risk its future on such an illsion. If we rejected the agreement made at Moscow and approved by the Connally resolution call it what you will, a concert, the nu clear alliance of a general inter national organization — what will happen? What is inexorably bound to happen? The British, the Rus sians. the Chinese, and the other United Nations, will have to shop around to find a substitute for the system of security we have ren dered unworkable. I? thay cannot have the grand alliance which now exists, how long would it be before they began to consider tempting of fers from Germany or Japan or from both? Can any one doubt that if we dissolve the alliance of the United Nations, we shall not get Mr. Hard s “world union” but new combinations ol threatened rmrJ rfvmn-ie /vf eloroc? * # * We must have a look also at Mr. Hard’s affirmative suggestion that the correct model of a world or ganization is the Pan-American Union, in which all states are equal and none is committed to anything. I share his admiration for the Pan-American Union. But I must say that he is ignoring the facts of life when he supposes that the world of great powers can be organized on this model. He is begging the question which we have to answer. For the republics of the Western Hemisphere are within the reach of only two great military pow ers—the United States and Great Britain, which together insulate this hemisphere from the military powers of the old world. The plants in a hothouse are beautiful but they do not flourish in the open weather. Let Mr. Hard con sider what would be the condition of South America if Germany and Japan had won this war. Then there would hav been gone the insulation w'liich has given this hemisphere its unique history. Us ing the development in the Ar gentine as a clew and a sample, le will soon see why the Pan With new faces featured in Fri day night’s grappling show at Thalian Hall, numerous new bone bending tricks should be display ed. Bert Causey, the colorful mug mashing promoter, stated that the coming mat card should bring out absolutely every phase of the limb t 'ng game. This assertion t o most probable, as the fierce four who are slated to do their destruction work Friday night are competent performers who resort to any style of attack. The grunt-and-groan addicts will be treated to a main event bout which is to pit science against rowdiness. Lanky Pete Mannagoff, the popular drop kick artist, will try to work his true toe against the unruly John Aurthor. Once the clever Mannagoff drives one of his feared boots home to some unfortunate wrestler’s body, the show is practically over. The ques tion is whether he will be able to be so accurate with the rough Aurthor throwing every trick in the book at him. “Georgia-’ Charlie” Harben, At lanta battler with as many wiles as any wrestler to appear here, makes his W’ilmington debut a gainst Wallie Wardk, an up and coming youngster. Tickets held from last week’s postponed match will be honored at the Thalian Hall box or may be turned in at the Orton Hotel for the new ducats which are now on sale. -V SENIORS OFFERED NAVY ‘DEFERMENT’ (Continued from Page One) graduation; therefore, this new program is made to order for them.” Seniors who desire to take ad vantage of this “deferment” should contact the Wilmington Navy Re cruiting Station at once, Helms said. It, will be necessary for each senior to produce a birth certifi cate and a statement from ,h i s high school principal to the effect that the senior will graduate on or about a certain date. All recruits in the new program will not be called before one week after their date of graduation— whether they have in the mean time reached their 18th birthday or not. Recruiter Helms emphasized the fact that only high school seniors are eligible for this program. Also, the seniors must be 17 years of age. These men will be given tests which will determine their eligi bility for training in radar. Radar traning, the recruiter ponted out, will be of great value in the post war world: its detection and trans mittal value will be greatly used in civilian capacities. Boys who do not pass the radar test will be given opportunity to enter another of the Navy’s 55 trade schools which teach voca tions of almost every nature. In- ■ eluded in these are all branches of aviation, medicine, radio and many others. Parental consent is necessary for all 17-year-olds in this program, and Recruiter Helms/advised that all applicants should bring their narpnts in the Nnw Perrnitine Rta tion in order to get consent pa pers signed officially. The Navy has discontinued the practice of sending these papers out to the homes. Fuller information may be ob tained by writing the Navy Re cruiting Station here, or by calling 5368.

CAROLINA OPENS CONFERENCE AY CHAPEL HILL, Jan. 1.—Caro lina’s White Phantoms will open their conference season next week with games at Virginia Wednes day night and at Davidson Satur day night.

By CHARLES DUNKLEF CHICAGO, Jan, 4.— i.'f —Elmef ' Layden, commissioner of the Na tional Football league, today dug into the bank rolls of George Pres ton Marshall, owner of the Wash ington Redskins, and Ralph Briz zoiara, general manager of t h e Chicago Bears, to the extent of $1,000. Layden, in the most drastic dis ciplinary action since he became commissioner in 1911, fined Mar shall and Brizzolaia $500 apiece for their altercation before 34,000 fans at the National pro champion ship playoff game in Wrigley Field here Dec. 26. The incident grew out of Briz zolara's efforts to remove Marsh all forcibly from the Eears’ bench, Marshall, snuggly wrapped in a big raccoon coat, was suddenly discovered on the bench in the closing minutes of the first half. Marshall insisted he merely had come there for a friendly half-time intermission parley, but Brizzolaia thought othervnse and with the help of Jack Goldie, Bear trainer, and police, escorted the Redskin owner to a passage beneath the stands. Layden termed the action of Marshall and Brizzolara "not re ciprocal of the public confidence in the National football league” and asserted they did not "pro mote the interest of professional foothall.” Commissioner La.vden also set Jan. 12 and 13 as the dates for the league's annuai winter meet ing to he held at the Blackstone hotel in Chicago. The meeting, originally scheduled for Dec. 20 and 21, usually is called to draft graduating collegians and is usu ally held at the time of the cham pionship game. A playoff in the Eastern division, however, forced a delay in the title contest and also a change in plans for the meeting. The player draft will not be held at the meeting a week hence, Lay den said, but, like last year, will be held later, probably at the an nual business meeting in the spring, -V HOTEL IS KILLED AT THE ITALIAN-SWISS FRON TIER, Jan. 4—fiPI—German Labor Chief Hans Hobel was among the most recent victims of sporadic resistance by Italians against the Nazis and Fascists in northern Italy, reports reaching the ffron tier said today.
