That's where the argument started—over the door. The rest of the shop, George Hosmer, George Kirk and Clinton Taylor argued either the doghouse was too big or the door was too small-and that even if the doghouse was big enough for an ordinary dog it wouldn't do at all on Saturday night.

' Eliminates Old Bottle Breaking Lavishness of Launching a Ship Radically Changed By LUCRECE HUDGINS Wide World Features Writer WASHINGTON - If you're related to an admiral or if there's a hero perched in your family tree or if you have an uncle who is a big shot in politics, then you too may some day swing a bottle across the prow of a navy ship. But it won't be a champagne bottle and won't wear orchids and the taxpayers won't present you with a diamond pin for your services. Congress has decided that such lavishness is unnecessary and, in time of war, unpatriotic. In the words of Rep. Jessie Sumner of Illinois, "If Helen of Troy could launch a thousand ships withoul a diamond bracelet, our women can do the same." Not Always Champagne As a matter of fact, champagne nasn t always been used for ship christenings. In 1898 the battleship Kentucky was launched under a shower of bottles of "Old Ironsides' blue grass bourbon. was baptized with a U. S.

Five Seasons Make Huge Difference in Their Relationship CLEARWATER, Fla. -(/?)_ Lou Boudreau was the shortstop and Ray Poat was the regular who pitched the University of Illinois baseball team to the 1937 Big Ten championship. Now Boudreau is managing the Cleveland Indians while Poat, also 24, is just a rookie trying to win a job. "I hope Ray comes through, not only because we played together at Illinois but because we need pitching," says Manager Lou. "But college will have nothing to do with it. He has to make good with the mana- er, not the old teammate." Post's development was slowed by an arm operation which removed a bone chip from his pitching elbow.
