•'V 4. I.­ THURSDAY, JUNE 28, 1951 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON. ILLINOIS iiaUlO DAV BY DAY 1 NEW YORK, June 28.—Television has brought back to uselul- ness a piece of farm cquiptneiU wiiich rural electrification long since sent into the discard on many farms. That i.s the old wind- mllJ tower, left standing after electric pumps took over ihe joh of producinf^ water once done with the aid of a stiff l)rccv.e. The towers, in their now capacity, are serving as 50 to To-foot masts for TV n;ceivin« antennas. It is surprising how many of the ex-windmills arc porfoirninii^ in a field tar from that for which they were designed. A cursory survey of farm areas stretching well into flic middle- west, some barely within range of TV cities, shows a surprisingly large numher ol homesteads to he Dart of the video audience. At east the antennas arc as numerous, relatively speaking, in those areas as they are in uruan localities. Some farm homes, situated between two or more TV centers, use motor-driven rotary antennas so that they can be directed for reception from opf>oaite points. The much-heralded television version of Amos and Andy finally gets under way as a weekly series on CBS-TV at 7:30 (Central Day- Jight) tonight. B'or the radio show the creators,. Freeman Gosdon and Charles Correll, have portrayed the principal roles over the years, but for video a separate all-Negro cast will be used. Aivin Childress will be Amos, Spencer Williamii is Andy and Tim Moore the Kingfish. In radio Amos also did the Kingfish. The program will be run off from films made in Hollywood.

ROUNDUP Sarazen Compares Ben Hogan To Bobby Jones By HUGH FULLERTON OAKMONT, Pa., June 28 (AP) —For more than 30 years. Gene Sarazen, a stubby little guy with a good swing, a quick mind and a ready tongue, has been playing against the best golfers in the world . . . Gene was good enough yesterday to shoot a 73 over the fabulously tough Oakmont course to stay close to the leaders in the PGA championship ... So there's not a golfer in the business who could do a better job of comparing the players who rate as tops for all time—Bobby Jones and Ben Hogan . . . Gene's answer: "They are two golfers who are almost exactly alike." SILENT TREATMENT "They're both fellows who like to be alone," Gene commented as he sat on the steps of the Oakmont clubhouse and tried to compare two of the greatest golfers he ever encountered . . . They'd take their putters to their rooms and practice at night. Not like Walter Hagen; he liked to have the crowd around; to look over the gallery . . . and he'd forget about a match as soon as it was over . . . Now Ben will sit with you and talk and answer questions, but you can see his mind is out there playing golf . . . that's one reason why they're alike. They have the art of concentration and they play one hole at a time . . . Others players will start off with a good hole and the first thing you know they're play- Cleveland 8, St. Louis 1 (night).

Fans see and get letters faster Pitcher Gene Collins is A, Isaiah Jackson, recruit catcher, Z. (NEA) ing the fourth or fifth in their minds . . . and if they begin badly, they think "I'll have to do this or that or I'll have a 3,8. They forget about the hole they're playing." MAN TO MAN ^ When you pin him down, Sarazen's conclusion is tha Hogan, the little guy with terrific competitive spirit, is a better all-around golfer than Bobby was in his time . . . "Jones, in his day, was the better putter," said Gene. "He was terrific on those 50-foot putts . . . But when you consider everything, I'd have to pick Hogan." P.S.: When you consider a golf­ er who won the open nad the PGA as a 20-yoar-old kid back in 1922 and who still is good enough to give the best swingers a tussle for a round or two in 1951, what's the matter with a guy named Sarazen?

Approve Hikes In Jobless Pay, Old Age Pensions By Aitecisttd Prtu SPRINGFIELD, 111., June 28.— A ?2 increase in the present $25 weekly ceiling on unemployment compensation awards has been voted by the Illinois legislature. The bill advanced to Governor Ste\enson for his signature following Senate passage late yesterday. Two bills empowering city councils to tax cigarette machines.and coin operated amusement devices for revenue were approved last night by the House, completing action on them. The bill on amusement devices specifically bans any gambling. Backers of the plan said it would provide a means of bringing additional cash into city treasuries. • Other legislation final approval included: A 10 per cent boost in old age pension checks. The Illinois Public Aid Commission is instructed by the measure to figure subsistance allowances on a higher basis. Pensions still will be based on need. A new act regulating and licensing plumbers, replacing the law knocked out by the State Supreme Coui-t. A new program providing up to .^eS a month for permanently and totally disabled persons. The Federal government pays half the costs. A bill requiring publication of personal property tax delinquent lists and the amount owed. Lion Tomer to Marry Divorcee By AitocliUd Prtti SEATTLE, June 28.—Clyde Beatty, the circus-owning lion tamer, and Mrs. Lorraine Abel, 28-year-old blonde from Fillmore, Calif., obtained a license to wed yesterday. Beatty also gave his residence as Fillmore and his age as 49. He brushed off questions about his romance and said he wanted no publicity. He and Mrs. Abel obtained a court waiver of the three-day waiting period customarily required after applying for a license. They explained the circus is moving on to Canada before that time. Beatty's former wife, Harriett, died in Mississippi last fall. Mrs. Abel told court officials she was divorced in Massachusetts last year. They would not say when or where they planned to be married. Seattle, built on seven hills between Lake Washington and Paget Sound, Wash., has 20O miles of waterfront. TIME TO BUY LIQUOR rs NOW from the only Liquor Store in Mt. Vernon.

S. Foreign Policy W ASHINGTON—(NEA) — Tha4 Washington answer to any in. ternational question that may arise still seems pretty much the same. It is: "Pour a hundred million dollars or so into it, then hope that will make everything okay. For a while, at least." This is true whether the answer is cooked up by the White House and State Department down town, or by some great brain on Capitol Hill. It is true of Republicans and Democrats alike. Most recent examples are Franco and Tito—Spain and Yugoslavia. If there is iny other embryonic dictator in the world who hasn't been able to milk the American eagle, or have millions of dollars thrust upon him, the U. S, hasn't heard of him. Peron of Argentina is bailed out for $125 million, as a State Department project to promote good will. The chief Republican criticism of the Truman administration policy toward Nationalist China is that not enough aid was given to Chiang Kai-shek. All he got was a couple of billions. A new U. S. foreign policy towards the Middle-East, recently reported in this space, involves a proposed billion-dollar cash and loan outlay for ten or a dozen little countries at the eastern end of the Mediterranean. Communist or Fascist — it doesn 't seem to make any differ- enece. Tito is the former and Franco is the latter. But each is i: line to get his hundred million. Plugs Franco Sen. Pat McCarran of Nevada Is the backer of Spain'r Dictator Franco for his hundred million. Senator McCarran was elected as a Democrat. But there is no one in the Senate who is more opposed to most Truman policies than he. And whatever one may think of Senator McCarran's principles and methods, there are few if any senators who have more power and influence in getting what they want. Last year, for instance. Senator McCarran got an amendment tacked on the Foreign Aid bill, requiring the LT. S. government to loan Franco $62.4 million. Eight months later, the Franco government had not signed a single con- trac!t to borrow any of this money. Senator McCarran therefore called to his office Herbert E. Gaston, president of Export-Import bank; Paul R. Porter of the Marshall Plan staff and William B. C)unham, on the Spanish desk in the State Department. There, in the presence of Spanish Ambassador, Senor Don Jose Felix de Lequerica Arquiza, Senator McCarran demanded an explanation on why no money had been paid out to Spain. The senator's reason for this unprecedented action, attempting to bawl out American officials before the Spanish ambaisador, was Simple and direct. Senator McCarran said he wanted to introduce another measure to give Spain $100 million more this year. But he was having trouble persuading his colleagues on the Appropriations Committee to grant more money, when Spain hadn't closed any deals for what was made available to her last year. Convinced that the delay in getting the money was not the fault of the American government, Senator McCarran then offered to speak to Franco, "because he's a good friend of mine," and hurry him up. Props Under Tito On money for Tito, the United States fortunately doesn't have to fork over the whole $100 million Specializing in Form Sofei Furniture and Real Estate at Auctions. Sales.

S. 65 per cent. This will he a grant. Yugoslavia isn't considered a good enough financial risk to make a loan to, yet. Purpose of the gift will be to build Yugoslavia's economy and balance her foreign trade within the next year and a half. Tito's government is by no means solvent today. It owes money to Britain, France, Belgium, western Germany, Greece, Austria, Egypt and a !512 million loan to the U. S. Export-Import Bank, among others. Yugo.slavia had a bad drouth year. The U. S. gave "Tito 560,000 tons of grain to help it over,the hump. But exports, most- Iv minerals and lumber, fell off. This year's crops look better, and Yugoslavia mav be able to export some surplus food to her western neighbors. Yugoslavia is delivering some copper, lead and beaux- ite to the U. S. and western Europe on contract, and hopes to in- But she still needs a big list of (Strategic imports—cotton, wool, chemicals, hides, petroleum products and explosives for her army. The Yugoslav "commodity" in which there is most interest seems to be this 350.000-man army. Fifty-five per cent of the Yugo .9lav $3..5 billion budget goes to support this force. Yugoslavia got .?29 million U. S. arms aid last year. There is a Yugo.slav General Popovic in Washington now, 1 gotiating for more arms aid. In the new $8.5 billion foreign aid bill now before Congress, there is an item of some S55 to $65 million earmarked for Yugoslavia.
