Many Players Seek Transfer in Majors By HAROLD CLAASS£M New York, March 22 —(^(—War- lime baseball, which already has brought Ihe substitution of chilblains for sunburn and snowmen for bathing beauties in the training camp life of the athletes, also has produced the 1-Doni-Want-To-Play- For - You Society among the players. Bob Johnson, slugging outfielder for Connie Mack's Philadelphia A's in recent years, is the latest to be Issued his card In the new organi- ization. Johnson, with Indian eloquence, had announced various times during the winter that he wanled to be traded and Mack finally look the hint and sent him to Washing- Ion lasl night in exchange for shortstop Jimmy Pofahl and infielder Bobby Estalella. He is one of at least seven major leaguers since late last fall who have announced a preference for a differcnl job or baseball uniform —and have been Iraded by owners seeking lo conserve Ihoir meager supply of manpower. Pofahl also is one of Ihe group. Only last month he was sent to Minneapolis of the American association for Pitcher Owcn'Scheelz. When he said he preferred his defense job lo playing in the minors, the Senators retained him and paid cash for the hurler. Now he is with the Alhlelics.

''^^ CHALLENGE CHAPTER XIX rPHE free barbecue dinner held the crowd at Sky Harbor unlil 9 p. m., also held Jimmy Carr and his passenger there. But the reception committee had thought fully arranged no night program, This would give the flyers a chance to rest. As soon as he could manage it, Jimmy slipped away from the bigwigs and celebrities and went to speak with Loraine. Ed Bryan had stayed near her, on guard. "I can tell you are furious, Loraine," Jimmy began, earnestly. "But I want to talk to you. I can explain everything." "Somebody'd better!" she gritted out. "I wouldn't say much without thinking, Miss Stuart," Ed Bryan said, in definite warning again. "Now or any other time. There's plumb strict laws about flashing around guns and fake Army orders. So long, Captain. I'll be seeing you at the hotel tonight." When he had gone, Jimmy drove straight to the point. "This had to happen," he told the girl. "You must see it in the right way, Loraine. You simply must!" "That—.that Bryan—he pulled me out of the sailplane, and—!" "I know he did. And I know he brought Patricia Friday out here. In fact I ordered him to. Loraine, I wanled Pat put back as the passenger. You remember how I kept you hidden at the take-off in Chicago? Wouldn't let news photographers on the field? That was done on purpose." "But why?" "Because it had to be! There's too much at stake. Colonel Furedy, the Army—they're banking on this sailplane trip! Coast to coast. Mountains of publicity. It's a real chance to sell soaring to the U. S. A. And we can't afford to let any kind of mixup spoil it. We want il to go off smoothly. And by George it will! Do you understand?" She didn't answer him. Her lips were taut. "Loraine, I know you got 9 dirty break, But if you couldn't be ready at the start there in. Elmira, then I just had to run in a substitute. It'll only be a few days more. Now you're mad, anc I understand it, so I'll let you alone. But you go to that hotel and meet us for breakfast, all sugar and smiles. Okay, sweetie?' Sweetie still didn't answer. Jimrny squeezed her elbow in genuine feeling, said, "Please, Loraine," and went away again. Whatever surged in Loraine's mind that night, only she knew. But she took no drastic action. Perhaps Ed Bryan's warning and Jimmy's plea both helped her to control herself. She was already in the hotel dining room next morning when Jimmy and Pat and Ed came in. "Good morning, Loraine," Pat said, as cordially as she could. Both men spoke heartily, too. They all drew up chairs to her table, uninvited. And the waiters began to serve them there. Loraine was cooler now. "Hello," she managed, flat tone. Pat said, "Loraine, we—we shan't do any bluffing. Not among us four. I can tell you that I was as astonished as you were, but—" "Right," Ed Bryan nodded. "—but I understand why Ed and Jimmy felt they had to do what they did. You must believe us when we say this is not personal. You were not treated shabbily. At least no more than— than—" Practical Ed Bryan stepped in again. "No more than you was treated in Chicago, Miss Friday. Not as much, in fact. You're the goat in all this, if anybody asks me!" "Yes," Jimmy nodded. "It's regrettable, all around. But let's all forget it. Please, kids! All of us. Intentions everywhere were good, I'm sure. Certainly this whole deal was impersonal. A part of our Army task. And, hang it all, t's been scads of fun! Aside from this—this little back-stage misunderstanding." * * * 'T'HAT was the vein of talk in * which Loraine was held down, .hen. She said almost nothing. But the other three assumed her agreement, and they made extra efl'orl to be courteous and kind, f she was astute enough to sense .hat this was by prearraugement, t couldn't be helped. At 9 o'clock this second day in Phoenix, distinguished Army fly- ng officials were to meet' local civic leaders in the hotel conven- ion hall. They asked Jimmy and 'your fiancee" to attend. That neant Pat, of course, due to the original mistake which liad been allowed to stand. The puoiic still thought cute little Pat Friday was named Loraine. Jimmy had agreed to meet flight technicians for an engineering powwow, but Pat went to the convention hall. The committee had arranged a radio forum, with 12 microphones. "This three-day glider and sailplane exhibition," the master of ceremonies told the radio audience and the people here in the hall, "has already proved to be a much bigger event than any of us anticipated. This, we know, is because Phoenix is the center of a vast irrigated farming empire. Soaring, my friends, is a means of transportation, and if we can somehow work out a way to deliver fresh farm produce to urban markets—" He had an excellent speech and he impressed his audience. And then it was Pat's turn to "say something." So many times, Pat realized, public talks of this sort are the sheerest drivel, pointless, bore- some to all. She had resolved on this trip to be a little more than just gracious, and so she set in now to tell these people how important soaring could really be. She talked barely 10 minutes, and then, concluding— "Therefore, gentlemen of Arizona, if you and all other farming communities will only prepare for it, your strawberries, your lettuce, your tomatoes, all your perishables as well as your mail and your express and a good deal of your other freight, can soon be shipped across the nation in glider trains. One big motor plane could tow 10 gliders loaded heavily with vegetables, dropping one glider off at each city passed. It could make noney for everybody concerned!" The applause ended when an ndignant farmer challenged Pat from the end microphone. "What she says is crazy!" he declared. "Talking about a train of these kites she flew here jn! We need common sense. I resent his whole proposition. It's just a crazy publicity stunt." Pat was first astonished; and hen suddenly she was mad. "Mr. Chairman!" she called. 'He—this is not a stunt at all! -le hasn't offered any sort of argument. He has merely thrown cold water on a grand idea!" The fanner laughed disdain- "ully. "You and this Captain Carr igure you can prove what you lave to say?" "You betcha!" Pat Friday .napped, fire in her eyes.

High officials made it plain Ihey feared such a crisis —perhaps rooled in enemy sabotage — could arise and so forcefully presented these fears to the assemblymen thai Ihe unusual bill was passed wilhoul a hilch.

The bill makes it a felony to engage in almost any activily "designed andcalculated to encourage violence, sabotage or disloyalty." Included in such activities are any that would "incite any sort of racial distrust, disorder, prejudices or hatreds, or which reasonably tends to create an atti- lude of stubborn refusal to salute, honor or respect the flag."

The lelter was written by Mr. Stuart's great uncle, James 'H. Stuart, in 1858, while he was a student at Lebanon Law School at Lebanon, Tenn. The texl follows: "Jan. 20, 1858 "Lebanon, Tenn. "Dear Brother: I am in rather an uncomfortable situation, off from home and without money, and as you have never been in a similar situation I guess you are not a very fit judge of mine. "You know not how bad it makes a man feel when he is constantly dunned for money on the street. The draft you sent me has been sent to New Orleans but I am disposed to think lhal il has been refused as I can hear nothing about it. "I have but one thing to ask of you and I think you are able to comply svith my request I wish you to write Floyd & Frasson to send mo a check on some bank in New Orleans to Ihe amount of three hundred dollars; that and the money I will receive from my draft will just about pay my debts and leave me with enough to pay my tuition. "I owe Jack one hundred dollars and I have about seventy-five dollars' worth of books lo buy and fifly dollars' tuition the last of which will be compelled to be paid in advance. Cril, I must have this money if il can be had and I believe you can make Ihe arrangements some way or other. "Checks on the Bank of New Orleans are worth 10 per cent premium and on three hundred dollars I can make thirty-dollars. As I said before, the money must be had if possible. "If no other arrangements can be had, or made, sell one of my negroes and* send me Ihe money forthwith and I will send the buyer a bill of sale.

House Prepares (Continued From Page One) chaos." 2. "The makeshift bill which the majority of the committee have reported to the House Utlerly repudiates the assurance previously held oul to Ihe American people that income - tax payemnts would, so far as possible, be placed on a current basis." 3. No present income taxpayers are made current by the commit- lee measure, nor can any become fully current Ihereunder except oy paying subslahlially two years' taxes in one year. "For mosl of Ihe 44,000,000 taxpayers this would result in an undue, if not in intolerable, burden." 4. The committee's bill discount provision "obviously will benefil only ihose who have sufficienl means lo pay two years' taxes in one. In other words, it is a sop to the well-to-do rather than to the millions of taxpayers who are most in need of having their tax payments placed on a current, pay- as-you-earn basis." 5. Whether the majority realizes it or not, "their bill abounds in forgiveness features." 6. "It can readily be seen. . . that the 'incentive' discount plan . ..may put a few thousand wealthy persons on a current basis, but will leave the millions of taxpayers in the lower income brackets precisely where they now are — one year behind. The Republicans said the demand for the Ruml plan "comes from the grass roots — from the people themselves," and that "it is worth noting lhat never has there oeen a greater absence of organized propaganda than in con- neclion with the people's demand for adoption of the Ruml plan." The report was signed by nine of the 10 Republicans on the Ways and Means committee. The 10th, Rep. Gearhart of California, joined the 15 Democrats in voting down the Ruml plan in committee and in reporting out the committee bill. He issued a statement saying the skip-a-year proposal was "Wall street boondoggling at its worst" and if enacted would "mushroom 100,000 war • made millionaires." The committee bill provides that a taxpayer at his own option may continue to remit his taxes as at present on the basis of the previous year's income, or may pay off the previous year in full aud go on a current basis. A discount ranging up to 6 per cent in 1943 and to 4 per cent in subsequent years is provided for whole or part advance payment of tax liabilities on current year income.
