Trailer Village Is
Growing On Campus
Establishment of a trailer village
is under way on the Bluffton college
campus, to provide housing for mar
ried war veterans w’ho want to en
roll as students.
A steam shovel was on the site
Monday to excavate trenches for
sewers and water lines needed for
the temporary housing project at the
west of Lincoln hall, men’s dormi
Three of the house trailers allo
cated to the college by the Federal
Housing Authority already are on
the campus, and the others will be
here soon, according to word re
ceived by college officials.
In addition to the 10 house trail

serves as a wash house, toilet and
shower room.
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.
