STAR PITCHER WAS A COTTON PICKER JEROME HERMAN (DIZZY) DEAN was born in Lucas, Ark., in 1911. Son of a poor cotton pick er, he was forced to quit school when he reached the fourth grade, because the family was so poor that the 50 cents a day he could earn in the cotton fields was a necessity. Under-nourished, poorly clothed and uneducated, as he was, Dizzy Dean always had confidence in him self. Perhaps that explains why he was able to develop what small ad vantages circumstances in life al lowed him, and develop them to championship quality. Confidence and a strong right arm hardened in the cotton fields were Dizzy’s equip ment for facing life. He learned to throw a baseball with amazing speed and control. In 1929, he was signed up by Don Curtiss, scout for the Cardinals’ Texas league. The salary was com paratively small, but it looked like a fortune to the former cotton pick er. After training in Houston, he was shipped to St. Joseph, Mo., where his confidence and fast pitch ing won 17 games. Transferred to Houston, he developed rapidly and soon became star pitoher for the St. Louis Cardinals. Meantime, his brother Paul, or “Daffy,” also won a pitching berth on the Cardinals’. Dizzy was always the more spec tacular, the higher paid, and the more widely publicized. He has endorsed many advertised products, made a motion picture, appeared in vaudeville, and spoken over the ra dio. His recent earnings have been $40,(XX) or more per year. £v-WNU Service. __ Jane Holden Is Wed In Toledo Mr. and Mrs. A. R.
