C.,T DAILY DISPATCH M6NDAY, JUNE 27, 1982 ~~* Race Tightened Game With Dabney Was Forfeited To Middleburg, 9-0 Middleburg took its first game of the two game series with Dabney in the Grange league Saturday after noon. The game was declared forfeit ed in the eighth inning, when Dab ney took exception to a decision by the umpire and refused to continue play unless the decision was reversed. This was not done, and the score au tomatically became 9-0 in favor of Middleburg. Middleburg was leading 2-1 when the disputed decision; occur red. The reason of the discussion was a foul hit by Dabney with a man on first base. This runner advanced to second while the ball was being call ed a foul. Te turned around to go back to first and while'on his way there the batter stepped back Into the batters l?ox and faced the pitcher which caused the bal lto again be In play according to the rules. The ball was then thrown to the first base man by the pitcher and the runner was tagged before getting back to first. The umpire declared him out and the argument which broke up the ball game ensued. The game up until this time was very close and promised to be one of the best of the season. Middleburg players and fans regretted very much that It had to end in this manner. However they had no alternative ex cept to abide by the decision of the umpire, who was neutra land well versed in the rules of baseball.—Re ported. cisldcards SPLIT IN DOUBLE Cubs Lose National League Leadership To Pitts, burgh Pirates St. Louis, June 27.—(AP) —The Chi cago Cubs split a double-header with the St. Louis Cardinals yesterday and lost the National League leadership to Pittsburgh, which climbed out of sec ond place bv defeating Cincinnati in a doubleheader.

The St. Louis Browns Cleveland. June 27—CAP)—Cleve land and St. Louis split a double header yesterday, the Browns drop ping the first, 10 to 5. in the face of Wes Farrell's masterful pitching, and the Indians developing batting para lysis to lose the second, 6 to 5. Farrell allowed the Browns six hits In the opener for hi sthlrteenth win of the season. The Indians lost several chances to win in the second despite Burnett’s ninth inning home run and Earl Averlll’s thirteenth circuit blow in the seventh. Their biggest chance was in the sixth, when three St. Louis pit chers passed four successive men with out allowing a hit. The four passes resulted from a short rain that made the ball too slippery to control. A hit in this inning would have meant at least a tie and probably victory for Cleveland.

Prohibition Not Observed.

That great fnstrtrment declares that 'this Constitution and ,the l&wp made in pursuance thereoff ‘ shall be the supreme law of the land.’ But it can not be the supreme law of the land if it can be abrigated by the people of a part of the land while remaining in force over the rest of them. Such conception destroys the very nature and structure of the Constitution, for if it can be made thus to qualify one of its provisions It may be made to qualify all of them. This would be the end of the Constitution itself. * “Under these circumstances this con ventlon owes it To the .people of the nation to make its declaration upon this subject clear, understandable and unequivocal. There is no reason why thfc people should be deceived or de luded. There is no reason why a po litical declaration should look in every direction and see nothing. Urges Re-Bubmlsslon.

Republican Rule Reviewed. The temporary chairman went back to 1920 and reviewed the intervening years of Republican leadership. The Harding administration he de scribed as “the darkest chapter of public betrayal In the history of this or any nation." On President Coolidge and Secre tary Mellon he heaped the blame for “an orgy of speculation and Inflation that had no foundation in real values.” "Stocks were manipulated, prices pyramided, then split up, then dis tributed among innocent people under the opiate of fabulous financial hopes built up by the most gigantic cam paign of official ballyhooing ever wit nessed in the annals of American his tory,” he exclaimed. Under President Coolidge, Barkley said, expenses of the national govern ment increased "more than $650,000,- 000.” He gave credit to the present Democratic House for reducing Presi dent Hoover’s requests for appropria tions “by more than $100,000,000.” Promises Economy. He promised that the Democrats would “abolish every useless office, every unneccessary bureau and com sission which has grown by what It fed on until the total has become an insufferable weight upon all the ac tivities .and resources of .the American people." * - . '• i "They, will never -be ’ab'Oiistfed* those #ho, noW operate them,” he said* “A new Hercules must clean out these Augean stables.” In dealing with the tariff. Barkley proposed that the Democrats inau gurate friendly international trade conferences with a view to reopening norma) trade channels In the world and make the tariff commission a fact finding body f*r Congress. Cooperative Farm Agencies. For agriculture’s relief, he advocat ed the enactment of laws setting up co-operative agencies through which the farmers may work out his own problems over a period of years, tak ing the government .out of the “dub ious adventure of speculation" in farm products, and farm products, and Installation at the head of the De partment of Agriculture a Secretary who has “some knowledge of the sub ject and some sympathy for those who struggle with it."

Speaking of unemployment, he ridi culed “fine spun" distinctions between local and national responsibility and deplored “sophomortc dispute over the identity of first aid” while the na tion’s "defenders or their dependents suffer from want or neglect.” Society, he said, must find away by which members displaced by in vention and advances may sustain themselves and their families in com fort and self respect. He advocated the consideration of the five-day week or the six-hour day as a possible solution of employment problems growing out of the country's industrial advances. People Turn to Democrats. Concluding, Barkley said "In all the generations of American history the people in every great crisis have turn ed to the Democratic party to lead them from the wilderness of disap poinment and disaster." “It will be so in 1932,” he shouted, "when the principles here announced and the leaders here chosen will in * the name of a people betrayed, be wildered and misled redeem for them a land despolied and made barren by * those who know not the ways of wis dom or of providence. “Such a nation, such a people need only the glimmer of a new hope.
