I'llOFKSSIONAI, JEALOUSY BE'nVKK\ THE CATCIIEKS Pyllak-s trouble started wlicn Holly iicmslcy came to the Indhns in 1938. Pytlak had been the club's first siring catcher for five vears nnd seemed lo resent (he presence or (mother topnolch workman Professional -jealousy developed immediately. Pytlak succeeded in holdinp his liositlon as (op man in 1938 when lie got In 113 games against Hom- slcy's CO. But it was dilferenl last season, largely because Hcniilcv is the greal Bob Feller's lavorile battery male, so the reformed Holly worked in 107 eiigngciiiciUs against 63 tor Pytlak. And Pyllak did nothinv, more than pinch hil or pinch run in not : a fciv or (he 63 contests in which * he appeared. He went to l«i O nlv 183 limes. His hilling fell off as a result, cided i hod , a poor season. Is it my taiili i wasn'l used more and Siven an opportunity to boost my batting average? "'r Vitt wants to keep me on the bench, that's his business. But I don't believe I should have my salary cut S38M on the ground I Bivpearcd in only 63 games when I was in shape and anxious to play in many more." In one discussion with Bradley. Yytlak told the owner he was as gcod a catcher as Bill Dickey. Bradley pointed out that he wasn't . - . not quile. anyway. Pytlak isn'i debater enough to have thought lo remark that Dickey gets $21.000. He now might add thai the Ginnls gave $10,000 to Zckc Bonnra. a first baseman Bill Terry doesn't intend lo use.

Those who remember the hullabaloo with which lhe American war loans were sold In 1917-1S19 would be amazed al the lack of all that in tlie raising of Britain's war funds. The British government recently issued a war loan of 300,000,000 pounds, which is the neat sum of $I,200,<X!0,<X)0 American money. II was oversubscribed by a public which is already so heavily income-taxed that Amern taxes seem mere "child's play." John Bull proceeded to dig down in his pockets and produce the dough, without, any public hullabaloo u'lmlever.

Dear Mr. Sudbury: Here's a singular slate of affairs! Buck In the fall of 1938, when things were ticklish, the government issued free gas masks to nil, and asked people to lake cure of them. When war broke last September, people were warned to carry Ihem all the time. The musks were issued in cardboard boxes like lunch boxes. Soon everybody was carrying the Hlllc boxes without self-consciousness, jitsl as he would carry an umbrella. But the cardboard boxes 'weren't very substantial, and enterprising merchants soon got busy selling containers of leatherette or metal. In many restaurants you could ncl park your has masks with your hal and coat. It was supposed to be always at your side. Some theaters and movies wouldn't let. vou in without your mask. But. here in London, people soon got tired of this. People began .caving their masks at home. To- dny 11 is a rare tiling to see anybody carrying the things. Tile gas mask lias practically vanished In I public plsces. People just can't he j bothered. The authorities are worrk'd about this, and are doing nil they the ; 29,400,300, families ' pwnhi"' I can to get people'out of this care- , cars during 1935-1930, the greatest less mood. The defenses of ion- expenditure was made by families , don and oilier big cities against = " """' 1 wholesale air attack are now very ! sood. but authorities do not want, people to take any chances. It's Irnly a cockeyed war. And in no phnsR is it more cockeyed than in the mutter of food. Beef, mutton, lamb. ham. butter, und ".iifc'nr are rationed as a precau- mnary measure und as an equal- i-er for all classes or people. Ration cauls are the order or tin- day. But—on rniit stands until recently yen could see beautiful ripe peaches, nectarines, and luscious nliinis. The answer Is. of course. South Africa, i^st liners fitted ' with cool rooms bring (he prod- i-cls of Soiiih African orchards direct lo London tables. • % American standards, however, the peaches are not cheap. At (heir lowest, they sell for about i! cents apiece. But that Is cheap as compared wilh hothouse peaches grown in England at from 25 to -10 cents apiece. Now here's a puzzler.
