0 SPORTS By JACK GALLON Here and There Along The Rialto of Sports | The baseball ghosts are walking again. Secreted in the outer panels of the diamond doors for the past two years, they have suddenly come to life and with their resurrection the pen* nant tom-toms are beating once more around the prosaic sur roundings of Community Park where Cumberland's Colts have suddenly taken the lead in the second half of the Bi-State fight. This means something. At* least. It should mean something— j for the baseball gentry of your old i home town hasn't had anythlns to cheer about for several years and If the Ponies can keep up their present gait the attendance at the Stadium will probably perk up considerably. And that is wha’ the boys need, a little home town encouragement. Keyser Here Sunday The Yearlings will be at home Sunday against the Keyser, W. Va., club and the b. b. barons of the Cumberland organization are looking forward to the season's biggest crowd, which couldn't be saying much in view of past at tendances. That the Geldings are more con fldent than ever of maintainin'.: their grand gait was shown by the enthusiasm they evinced last Sunday over the flossy flinging of one Raymond (Dizzy> Ambrose, he who "blows them by ’em." Ambrose was a familiar figure on the dlas at the Stadium a couple of years ago when he hurled for the Dobbins but he was conspicu ous by his absence last year when he returned to his native lair of Berkeley Springs. W. Va.. am! looped them on the lanes for his Mountaineer buddies. But he came back to the regalia of the Horses last Sunday and came back in away that left little doubt as to his ability. The pic ture was something like this: Frostburg had Just blasted Jim Stevenson from the premises in the third inning and the Ponies called on ’Ole Diz’ to chip in with his chores. When Ambrose scurried to the slab the Colts were getting kicked around by a score that looked something like 5 to 1. Diz Shows ’em All eyes, naturally, were on Am brose. But he didn't lose any time In going about his work methodically but briliantly. In seven innings he set the Frost burg Legionnaires down with one puny run to win out 6 to 5 in a game that Anally went 10 heats. Old Ambrose pitched the kind of ball of which he is capable. And if he hurls any more games like that the Ponies won't have much to worry about in the way of opposition. Cronin's Comeback Who has made the greatest come-back in the major leagues this year? No. it isn’t Charley Ruffing. Neither is It Carl Hubbell who has won his last six games. You have the word of BIU Dooly, veteran Phillv scribe, that it's none other than square-jawed Joe Cronin, play ing-pilot of the Boston Red Sox. DOODLES DOOLEY: "The rank and file of the Red Sox made no secret of the opinion in Florida last Spring that their prospects for winning the 1941 flag would be a lot better if Cronin retired to the dugout in favor of Skcetcr Newsome. They figured they would hang-up a lot more double-plays with Newsom" playelng alongside.

Cronin is batting as hard as he ever did and his Adding has left nothing to be desired. The club, 'tis true, is not in first place but that's no fault of Joe. And lest we forget, the old time Middle Atlantic Leaguer is 35 years old. j Dodger Fans Daffy Baseball fans are fickle. Just a short time ago the Brooklyn Dodgers were the recipients of some nice-sized "yokel” yells from their Flatbush following but the team, now hitting on all four and threatening to "Yankecitus" the National League into submission, is a Rood bet. And. brother, this Brooklyn ball club is a ball club! It's got everything from pitching to fast base running, and to me it look-: like a lead pipe cinch for the bunt mg. The infield of Lavagetto. Reese. Herman and Camilli Is the best in the league and the outfield of Medwick. Reeser, Walker. Vos • mik and Wasdel isn't anything to moan about. Pitchers? Say. fella, liow'd you like to have critters like Whitlow Wyatt. Hugh Casey. Luke Hamlin. Fred Fitzsimmons. Bill Kimball. Kirby Higbe and Curt Davis hang ing around? Incidentally, that Hicby investment turned out just right for the Dodßers, didn't it? Dizzy Ambrose ‘Hot’ As Colts Ride High Sunday's Games Keyser at Cumberland Frostburg at Westvmeo. The Cumberland Colts didn't win the first half of the Bi-State league but if Raymond 'Dizzy j Ambrose has his say. and he had a very biR say last Sunday, they'll make mince pie out of the opposi tion the rest of the season. The unpredictable fastballer i came back to the wars after a two-year recess and turned in as neat a bit of relief pitching as has been seen here in years. Re suit: The Ponies scored a 6 5 tri- I umph over Frostburg and took the lead in the current race. Indeed, the battle went 10 In nings before the Dobbins won. Frostburg pounded veteran Jim ; Stevenson hard in the first three I frames, cuffing him lor five runs, ; but what had looked like certain triumph for the aliens was turned into defeat when Ambrose came to ' the scene and checked them with n lone run the rest of the way.

For seven and one half rounds it was quite a respectable ball game but when the Brewers came to bat in the eighth they turned It into disaster with a sizzling, five run attack that wrote finis to the chances of the Unionites. Steele and Meyers. Celancse curvesters. were the victims of the attack but they gained some solace from the fa"t on tN tee for the Germans was also shaken-up for 11 blows. Henderson and Atliey were the German battering rams, lashing out seven blows between them while Merrtman. Lynch. Scolllck and Sloan had two each for Local 1874. Other league scores Sunday were: Mt.

CIO Pressure CnntinurtJ irom p**:** one labor in the House and govern ment. “Whllr professing friendship for labor and claiming labor's support on the basis of that friendship, thr majority leader ship has pursurd an anti-labor course," Jones declared. "Those who can Justly claim the right to labor's support must de fend labor and all of labor's rights, especially in times when it Is difficult to do so. when labor's ancient enemies, and the tradi tionally anti labor press, are howl ing the loudest for labor's scalp," he said. John L. Lewis, speaking to a CIO group for the first time since his retirement as CTO president last November, emphatically dc nounced false friends of labor in . Congress and in government. He mged the CIO to "hitch up it* trousers, roll up its sleeves, spit on its hands and get to work" to defeat all attempts to hamstring labor. The United Mine Workers pres ident sharply condemned the use of troops to break strikes, and voiced his opposition to compul sory arbitration. CIO President Philip Murray stressed the danger of compulsory arbitration, warning that the power to regulate the lives of mil lions of workers was given to a few men. "A board which Is given the power to designate wages is given the power to regulate lives or even prescribe death." he observed. —““’ due* In advance, the other* pooled what little could be scraped together, and thr club was underway. Seven month* ' later 82 men were on the club's rolls and sll6 in thr treasury. One year later, on January I, 1910. 154 men were In thr club and $691 had bern received and $598 paid out. Then member ship rolls were opened to all I plant workers and the roll* spurted. On January 1, 1941. there were 430 members in the club and a balance of $450 in the treasury after $2072 had been paid out of a fund of $2523. Today. 691 men; and 172 women hold membership ' in the club and a balance of $865 : is held In the bank. Benefit club members point with 1 pride to the steady growth of the; club, but haven't given up there. They have holies of starting a hos pitalization plan that would ollm ' Innte one of the major worries of Celanese workers. Under the hos pitalization plan. Boyd Payton, club chairman, explained, the elub would pay up to SIOO on a mem ber's hospital bill. Dues under the new plan would amount to $1 a month until enough members Join in the plan to allow a reduction of the monthly payment. In three years the club has paid out over $3669 in benefits, but the value of the benefits to Celanese workers who have been hurt In or nut of the plant can never be estimated.
