Nov. 24 (IP)— At an age when most men have retired to a life of quietude, leaving the affairs of business to those younger in years, the amazing 77 year old Kenesaw Mountain Landis still is vigorously riding herd over the baseball industry. Recently, feeble rumors have been heard that perhaps the commissioner of baseball should retire, leaving the inference that younger blood may be needed, But the crisp-speaking, 129-pound baseball chief still remains the symbol ot integrity and honesty, ' keeping vigil over the industry's | code, enforcing regulations with a mailed fisl and with stricl impartiality. This has been a great, active year for Landis as he successfully guided the big business through a crisis imposed by Ihe war. The Landis-Easlmun line for spring training in the north was his first' enterprising step, the firing of William D. Cox his second. Landis concluded a three month ris, veteran American League pilot, gave the team a fine start and by July 4, the "rejuvenated Phllles" (they finally wound up the season in 7th place) had packed in more spectators at home than they did during the entire 1942 season. Late in July, Cox startled the baseball world by discharging Harris and Coach Earl Whitehill. In a formal 850-word statement, Landis yesterday disclosed Cox had resigned as president and director of the club Nov. 18 "to devote all my lime lo war-essential business"; Dial llic probe had started in August, and that Cox was notified to report for a hearing on the belling charges in New York Dec, 4. Cox, however, refused lo attend the hearing, declaring "I do nol see any useful purpose could be served by my attending any further hearing before you." Landis said that Cox first asserted the allegations he had bet on Associated Press Sports Columnist New York Nov. 24 </P>— Judge ably set a record of some sort re- Landis was 77 years old the other , cently when he fought Buddy Scott fense of the title this year by the I j nvc sligalion yesterday.

Trojans May Play Bucks on Saturday Hot Springs, Nov. 24 — (JP)It the Hot Springs Trojans become champions or co-champions of the Arkansas High school conference this week they will accept the challenge of Smackover's unbeaten and untied Buckaroos for a Saturday night game, Coach Milan Creighton said. All the Trojans have to do to earn a piece of the conference championship is defeat the powerful Fort Smith Grizlies on the Bruins' home lot tomorrow. They now are tied with Pine Bluff for the conference lead. Smackover, perenially one of the state's con-conference powers, issued the challenge last week to any of the ranking conference clubs. ——• -— • —«•» »-•->- — Fights Last Night i By The Associated Press New York Joe Governale, 157 1-4, New York, outpointed Johnny Jones, 147, Pitlsburgh, 8.

ISSOURI PACIFIC &> Fusion Ticket Looms for '44 Senate Race Defeat of the Food Subsidy A Natural Political Reaction By an overwhelming majority the House of Representatives has passed the anti-food-subsidy bill, and passage is so certain in the Senate that the administration has had to resort to offers 6f compromise—which have been summarily rejected. ——© The administration's plaint is ' that if the food subsidy program has to bo dropcd because of the congressional order contained in the pending bill then all prices will rise sharply and the nation will'be engulfed by inflation. j Every thinking citizen is aware j of the inflationary threat. The'ad- ministration is wasting its time when it lectures on this point. What concerns us now is not the inflation that may lie around the corner, but the inflation that we already have— and how to fix responsibility for it. All that the issue boils down to is simply this: Industrial wages were permitted to spiral upward for several years in an uncontrolled inflation, but farmers and white-collar workers, i far from being helped, were caught | between frozen earnings and rising | living costs. This "freeze" business is all right By SAM G. HARRIS Little Rock, Nov. 26 (/Ti— Arkansas' electorate is going to be treated to one of the most interesting political campaigns in a decade next summer if pro-campaign maneuvering is any indication.

Switzerland, Nov. 26 (ff) Thousands of bombed-out Bermers, their scanty posessions trapped to their backs, defied Nazi hreats of punishment today to con- inue the mass exodus from the chaotic and still burning capital city, German frontier dispatches said. A dispatch from Basel, on the Swiss-German frontier, to the newspaper La Suisse at Geneva said all reports from the German capital painted the same picture of terror and destruction, with firemen in many instances compelled to.resort to dynamite in an attempt to'f check the spreading flames. Thousands of persons still are trapped beneath the debris, with little chance of their being dug out alive, the dispatch continued. The Basel dispatch said Berlin authorities faced an almost impossible task in attempting to find shelter for the homeless. Thousands, taking out possessions on their backs or in small carts, risked the danger of being without ration cards, and local visas to flee the stricken city, the account went on. Other thousands, it said, were obeying orders and awaiting arrangements whereby they will be sent to reception zones. Caves are being dug and barracks hastily crrected to afford some shelter for those remaining until more permanent shelters can be constructed. The homeless arc being fed from kitchens on wheels, the dispatch said. ' A traveler who left Berlin after Monday's attack said the Gestapo had; arrested 3,000 persons, includ- .in^2.'000 ; women and children, who were insane from shock. He declared the hopelessly wounded and insane were killed. Japslappers Widen Pacific Front- BOUGAINVILLE SOLOMON IS. Pacific Ocean MARSHALL ISLANDS MALOELAP MIL!
