H. 8241 Connie Mack at Freedmen's Visits Fan Who Never Saw Game Connie Mack, owner and man ager of the Philadelphia Ath letics, found one of his most ar dent fans when he visited a 19 year-old patient in Freedmen's Hospital yesterday. George L. Bryant, colored, who has never seen a baseball game, but follows all games on radio and television, broke into a hroad | smile when Mr. Mack suddenly ■walked into his room. George, who has been in the hospital for 10 years suffering from rheumatic arthritis, immedi ately asked, “Who will be the toughest team to beat?” "The Yankees look pretty good, George,” the aging pilot of the Athletics replied as he bent over his bed. George, who can't move, is the sports writer of the hospital paper, the Oracle, and has predicted that the Philadelphia team will win the pennant this year. The Ath : letics are currently in second place, five and a half games be hind the New York Yankees. Connie Mack was a little sur prised when George discussed a game the Athletics played in 1910 with the Chicago Cubs and stood corrected when he said his team scored 10 runs in the 10th inrfing. “It was in the seventh inning, wasn’t it, Mr. Mack?’’ the small patient interposed. Earl Brucker, pitching coach, and Second Baseman Nelson Fox were on hand, as George received an autographed ball from the manager of his favorite team. George may not be able to move, but he will be talking about yes terday's visit for a long time. Brannan Accused of Tying Corn Price to Election By the Associated Pres* Two Republican Senators yes terday accused Secretary of Agri culture Brannan of permitting the price of corn to drop just before the presidential election last No vember. Senators Wherry of Nebraska and Ferguson of Michigan de manded to know why Mr. Bran nan’s department did not buy corn for six weeks before the elec tion. Mr. Brannan angrily denied any deliberate act to affect the corn prices. “I made the decision not to purchase,” he said, “because we had no one asking us to buy corn.” Mr. Brannan came before the Senate Appropriations Committee to testify on the pending foreign aid bill. But foreign aid was shoved aside in a loud, angry de bate over Government corn pur chases and the department’s sale of grain storage bins.

Wheatley New specifications to guide an Army-National Guard board in the selection of a successor to Brig. Gen. Albert L. Cox as com mander of the District National, Guard are being prepared in the' office of Lt. Gen. Wade L. Haislip, deputy Army chief of staff for administration. So much political pressure is re ported to have been applied that it is expected the approved <^n didate's name will be before the President for appointment before the first troops depart for field training on July 10. Although a spokesman in the office of the deputy chief of staff said the specifications have not been completed, they will widen considerably the field from which a candidate may be selected. Originally the board, headed by Maj. Gen. Willard J. Wyman, chief of staff of the First Army, was limited in its search for can didates to National Guard colonels residing in the Washington area and whose principal businesses or activities were in the District it self. It was said at Gen. Haislip's office the Wyman board probably will be reconvened to reconsider the candidates. The selection of a candidate was pressed when'the politically pow erful National Guard Association of the United States moved in to force a quick decision in the inter est of National Guard efficiency and morale. The matter has been lying dormant on the desk of Col. Louis H. Renfrow, aide to the Secretary of Defense on civilian components, awaiting the organi zation of the New Civilian Com ponents Policy Board, according to Col. Renfrow. Following a conference with a group of local Guard officers here a week ago with Maj. Gen. Ellard A. Walsh, president of the National Guard Association, the latter went, to Defense Secretary Johnson and Army Secretary Gray. Gen. Walsh, who now is in the field with his division in Minnesota, is reported to have impressed upon the Secretaries the importance of I making a decision prior to the be- > ginning of the field training for the District troops.
