Barney Ross Entertained by Sports Writers By. SID FEDER New York, March 15 — <ff)— Corp. Barney Ross ciime homo Hist night lo his own "mob," the fight writers. After weeks of public appear- anccs, speech-making and general merry-go-round riding in his best bib and tucker, he sill down with his old pals at a small private parly die boxing writers gnvc him —just the kind of a "shindig I wanted, where I could lake my inir down and cut up touches with •lie fellows I know," And in the simple, easy way that mode him the "sports wirters' fighter", the one-time world welterweight and lightweight chnm- pion admitted to the boys he shouldn't have been singled out for a hero's role from the Marino action on Guadalcanal. There was some argument about this. The writers pointed out he had killed 22 Japs one night last November while standing by and protecting three wounded Marine buddies. "Yes," he explained, "but I feel so insignificant, because I'm only one of the many thousands who have done as much — in fact, most of them have done whole lot more than I have. But I was lucky. And I'll never forget that the Lord had his arms around my neck and kept them there all the time T was in action. "People make heroes," he wont on. "Don't forget one tiling — every man who's able lo hold and fire a rifle is a hero. There are no cowards out there. Sure, we all had that knocking of the knees and the clacking of the teeth. But the only tiling all of us thought abuut and cared about was to see how many Japs we could shoot every day we were in the line." The only formality about the party was a presentation lo Ross by Publisher Nat Fleischer, of the Ring Magazine Merit Award for 1942. This, along with the Edward J. Noil Memorial trophy the Boxing Writers Association presented him previously, just about clinched the little corporal's rating as "Boxing's Man of The Year." SPORTS ROUNDUP By HUGH FULLERTON, JR.

Th'e war department confers the Army-Navy "E" award only on plants that have maintained 'an excellent standard of quality and quantity production and, in a letter to ; the workers informing them they have wpn the award, Undersecretary of War Robert P. Patterson tells them they have merited the award by their devotion to duty, their willingness, and their production.

"HrlNN I'at," he ileelareH, "TUlM order MJNN Stuart gave you U forged." * * * NO ARGUMENT CHAPTER XIII WITH no thought given to that " detail at first, Pat Friday had discovered first in Cleveland and then in Chicago that she was "Miss LoraJne Stuart, Captain Carr's fiancee." So, still to protect Jimmy, to help him toward the promised promotion, and generally help make the soaring flight a success, she had held to that harmless masquerade. But tonight at 10:30, room 1220 in the big Chicago hotel telephoned downstairs. ' "Send a waiter with a menu up here at once," the speaker ordered, peremptorily. "And a servant to unpack a suitcase." "Oh, surely!" the service hostess was apologetic. "Are you—is this Miss Stuart's maid?" "This is Miss Stuart herself! What's the matter with this place?" "But—room 1220, you say? I didn't recognize your voice over the phone, Miss Stuart. And when you were downstairs you told us you wished to be left alone until morning, so I specifically ordered all servants not to disturb you. Is —is this the Miss Stuart of the transcontinental soaring flight?" Doubt sounded in her tone. "Of course it is. Don't be stupid." "I'm sorry. The waiter and maid will be up immediately." Loraine issued further orders. She wanted laundry and pressing done here in the night, and she demanded that it be finished before dawn. She needed lipstick because she had forgotten her own, and had the hotel service send up a drugstore clerk with eight different shades for her selection. She demanded that somebody conie and take the several bouquets of flowers out of 1220, sent up as welcoming gifts for the lady passenger that afternpon. During this interval of petulant complaining and ordering and of getting herself refreshed, Loraine thought of her victory over Pat Friday. The little snip had been squelched! It had been good to see Pat back off and leave the room, scared to death of a gun. Loraine paused, inhaling smoke, and considered that part of it. She looked at the automatic pistol which she had used. Something inside her told her that Pat Friday actually hadn't been afraid. Indeed, Pat had seemed a little disdainful of the pistol, at first. But when Loraine had shown her that Army order— Loraine chose to believe it was fear of the gun, too. She gloated silently over the triumph. Damn her! She'd taken all she meant to from that Friday person. But, even so— "I'm a little shaky," Loraine confessed. "What I need is a drink." She ordered liquor sent up, and during the short wait for it, she felt herself go really jittery. A reaction had set in, to leave her nerves jangling. It made her hate Pat Friday more. Friday was the cause of all this, obviously. Loraine grew bored with considering it, and as the drinks took effect she felt spirited again. She reached for the telephone. "Connect me with Capt. James Carr," she ordered. "Mr. Carr left orders not to be disturbed." "Don't be ridiculous! This is his passenger on the flight!" * * * HPHAT, of course got Jimmy at x once. Loraine recognized his answer, and her own lovely voice flowed to him meltingly. "Jim-mee darling," she cooed. "Hey, that you, Loraine? By George!" "Yes!" "Are you all right? Say, this is great, your calling. But where in the devil were you this morning at 11 o'clock?" "Jimmee, I want to see you, now." "Sure wish I could. Say, we had a swell flight, Loraine. Clear as crystal all the way, but looked like we might have out-run a storm. Any sort of blow or rain there tonight, hunh?" "Jimmee, I am in this (hotel with you. Two floors down." "What? Hey!" He hurried down to meet her in the mezzanine lounge. He was smiling broadly when he approached, but when she kissed him lingeringly and clung to him, he took her by the shoulders ai eased her away. "Loraine!" he spoke softly, but in disappointment. "This liquor business—I thought we agreed- look, people who fly, and—" She stopped him by snuggling close and laughing in easy, too- intimate manner, and petting him and murmuring little cozy sounds. "You didn't wait for poor little me!" She started to pout. "Listen, Loraine! That flight was set for 11 o'clock!" His tone, definitely ominous', knoclced the pout right out of her. She resumed her softer technique. "We made a swell run to Cleveland and a mob was there to welcome us," he said. "But when we got here to Chicago—wow, Loraine, they all but gave us the town! You should have been along just to watch Pat. Say, you know what? That kid has something! I mean, she has! She had stage fright at first, but later she—" Loraine kept control. Naively, Captain Garr praised the other girl; no more than was due, surely, but with more enthusiasm than was necessary at the moment. "Have you checked in on Pat, too? Told her you were here, Loraine?" "Jimmee, Miss Friday has returned to Elmira." "What?" He was astonished again. "But of course, Jimmee! When I found you had already gone, and been forced to take her with you, I came at once. She's gone back." "But—no! We can't—look, Loraine, we—that kid's worn out! Hasn't slept in two nights, and anyway I—look, how'd she go back?" "She went on the same plane that brought me, darling." "What plane? There's no commercial flight at this hour, or any—" Loraine smiled ever-so-sweetly and intimately now, snuggled her blond curls in the hollow of his shoulder. She was wise enough to know she could spike bad news by admitting it first. "Sweetheart," she purred, "I'm afraid little me was naughty. Just a little-itty bit. I went to your desk, back home^ and got one of the order blanks, and filled it in for a plane. And I—" she giggled a little, sweetly, "I signed your name. I knew you wouldn't care." He sort of stiffened, automatically. "Loraine," he breathed, frowning. She giggled again, possessively, snuggling him very close and petting his firm young cheek, as a fiancee perhaps has a right to do. There was no argument he couW summon, no reprimand, (To Be Continued) Ov6r Service Player Denver, 'March 15 —(/P)—There's i question about the eligibility of one'player in'the National A. A.

The New York Yankees who, until last fall's World Series, made it a practice to be out in front in virutally all departments set the pace here, loo, with four unsigned batlerymen even Ihough Pilcher Ernie Bonham said on the west coast thai Ihe lerms offered were agreeable. He didn't initial the contract, however. Ten of the 16 American and National league clubs start their seasonal grind today with the Yankees shedding their excess poundage at Asbury Park, N. J. A player automatically becomes a holdout when his club begins its drills and his name isn't on a pact. Catcher Bill Dickey and pitchers Alley Donald, and Spud Chandler are on Ihe oulside along with Bonham. The Yankees conquerors in the last World Series, the St. Louis Cardinals, unpack their bags in Cairo, 111., with only Harry Walker, reserve outfielder, unsigned. Walker's brother, Dixie of the Brooklyn Dodgers, also has intimated that he may not play this summer. In addition, the Dodgers have three full - fledged holdouts in pitchers Rube Melton and Buck Newsom and catcher Mickey Owen. The Brooklyn club is getting in shape at Bear Mountain, N. Y., half - way between New York City Big Leaguers Beat Service Team 9-4 Sarasota, Fla., March 15 (A 1 ) Paul Derringer led a team of big leaguers and local players to a 9 to 4 victory over the Sarasota Army Air base in the nearest thing Florida has had this year to its usual baseball exhibitions. Derringer, recently acquired by the Chicago Cubs from Cincinnati, shut out the soldiers with one hit during the three innings he was on the mound yesterday. He struck out three men, and helped his cause with a timely double. The Army team, composed of former college and serni - pro players, played their more famous rivals on almost even terms for three of the seven innings of the abbreviated contset, but a change ol hurlers was followed by seven runs in the forth and fith innings. The soldiers scored all their runs in the final two frumes off Paul Waner, the veteran outfielder who was recently acquired by Brook lyn. and the U. S. Military academy. The St. Louis Browns, 'drilling at Cape Girardea'u, Mo., have no holdouts while the Cleveland Indians, starting their conditioning on the campus of Purdue Uhiver sity, have only Jeff Heath, outfielder, outside th'e fold.
