Injured Foot May Hamper Brooklyn Pitcher By JUDSON BAILEY New York, April 10 —(/I 1 )— One of ho best major league prospects ever lo gel up lo the big show with nil a chance of staying is Harold Arthur Peck of the Brookly,, Dogg- ers. Peck was one of Ihc stars of the Milwaukee Brewers lasl season ;md led the American Asociation n lolal hits. He was such h prize that, oven though he shot Iwo loos off of his left foot in an accident last September, Larry MacPhail bought him for a fancy price. Peck's problem now is this — hi. 1 Toot has not yel mended sufficiently for him to earn an outfield berll with the Dodgers and when il does get well he must report for induction. This seems like a hopeless circle for the immodiale baseball ambitions of the 20 year old Swatter from Genosce Depot, Wis. "I still feel quite a bit. of pain," he said todnv. "but I wear n special shoe with spang rubber in the too and I do ;> little running every day. 1 don't know how long it will take to heal, but I expect to play baseball somewhere this year. "I was classified 1A last fall before the draft board know about my foot. When Ihey examined me they didn't, give me any new clasifica- tinti. they just told me and my. doctor lo rep°i'l back as soon as the fool ,vas well, f figure thai I will be able to got around o n it for a couple of hours a day in a ball game before I will be in shape for the army. I have to wear a special dress shoe, too, and I wouldn't be able to do much marching for some time." Pock is married and the father of a nine months old daughter.

From the look ensack, N. J., sporls scribe, came up with the suggestion that golf clubs suffering from the hortage of professionals might do worse than to hire some of the better feminine golfers to lake their places. . . . There's no kidding about the shortage, either, though eventually the supply of golf courses may run short, too. A lot of the mciv who served their apprenticeship •'•learning lo make golf clubs havq-fo'und that handling tools in war planls is right down their alley ...

The wharf was piled with solid walls of bales and mahogany lumber. Waterproof canvas bags of chicle were lined in even rows. Dark-skinned natives, their broad backs glistening with sweat, were laughing as they worked. Winding his way through this crowded, boisterous scene Allison saw a tall, dark man, approaching in a perfect filling fresh linen suit. His white teeth gleamed as he smiled his welcome. In one sweeping motion he took the panama hat from his head and bowed with formal dignity. "Miss Topping," he said in perfect English. "Most welcome to Guatemala." Allison shifted her eyes from the stranger to Barry. "Mr. Renaldo Annado, I'd like you to meet a friend of mine from the Stales, Mr. Barry Fielding." For an instant Renaldo's eyes narrowed as he looked steadily al Barry. "You, too, are interested in the chicle business?" Allison thought she caught a look of relief cross Renaldo's face vhen Barry answered goodna- luredly, "Heaven forbid! I'll leave the chewing gum business to Allison and stick to my mining." "You are a mining engineer?' Renaldo asked. "That's right." Renaldo offered his arm to AL lison, saying at the same time "Shall we go to the cafe now We can talk there more comfort ably." The sun was pouring down lik golden molasses and litlle pulTs o white dust rose from the slree A short half block and Renald stopped in front of a small whit plaster building with a dozen um brella-covercd tables along th sidewalk. "Here we are!" Renaldo an nounced and drew back a bambo chair for Allison. The three sa down and suddenly three cups o steaming coffee them. appeared befor "The waiters here must be p?y- lic!" Barry grinned. "They know when Renaldo omes it means cofTee and quick!" The dark mail flashed r\ smile. "I want your stay here to be most pleasant, Miss Topping..' I lought a great deal oC your ither, you know, and anything I an do for you will be an honor me. I have reserved the best oom in the hotel—you will like there." * # * A LLISON looked a little puzzled. *• "That will be all right for to- ight but after that I'll be staying t my plantation." Renaldo smiled patiently. "I was just getting to that. . . . You see it is just as I wrote you— 10 whole idea of a young woman unning a chicle plantation is fan- astic. The dangers are great and he discomforts are beyond de- cription. Frankly, I didn't think ou would even come. Then when got your letter I decided maybe t was for the best that you see or yourself." .r. • When Renaldo had finished peaking he turned to Barry. "Mr. Fielding here is familiar vith this country. I'm . sure he vill bear out what I say." Barry's face was a perfect study n I-told-you-so. "I've been trying to tell Miss Topping the same thing ever since we left New York but she seems lo have her own ideas." "I think a trip to the plantation will be more convincing than words," Renaldo said shortly. There was a determined set to Allison's jaw as she said, "I stir think I'll like it." Barry lit a fresh cigaret and lilted back in his chair. "Are you familiar with thf Quiche country?" he asked o: Renaldo. "As familiar as anyone can b< without being a Quiche. They arc a strange tribe, you know." "Yes, I was reading about them on the way down How, in th 16th century, to protect Ihewselve from the ravages of Alvarado : troops, they devised a blood oat! and swore never to mingle wit! any other tribe." "The oath goes much farthe than that," Renaldo explained "They will not use anything tha they have not fashioned with thei own hands. Nothing in the \va of modern implements has bee used among the tribe for over 60 years. As each member of. th tribe attains the age of 12, th blood oath is administered. ^ cannot be bribed, as they have n use for money or worldly goods The penalty for any violation o the oath is death." • 3ARHY drew a map from his * coat pocket and unfolded it on le table. Tracing red pencil lines 1th his finger he said. "My corn- any has spent years gathering nta on the cinnabar deposits down ere and from what _cattered in- ormation they have been able to et, the deposits lie in this moun- ain range." Nobody really knows," Renaldo lid, "except the Quiches them- elves. The location of the mines s one of their most guarded se- rets. They use a primitive method f getting quicksilver from the ore nd I suppose they don't scratch surface as far as what the mines could really produce," Until the war most mining en- ineers had practically abandoned lie idea of ever getting into this ountry—but that was while Spain till could produce enough quick- ilver to supply the world's mar:et," Barry said. "I know," Renaldo answered. And now with every one of your irplanes and tanks having a radio et, quicksilver has suddenly be- ome vital. I heard the same story jnly eight months ago from anther mining engineer who had jeen sent down from the States." "That was Matthews," Barry iaid. "Tell me, did you also meet Hall? He came down two months igo." Renaldo shook his head. "No. But I have been inland on the Dlantation since. He probably went sy another route into Quiche coun- ry. There are many trails, none very safe." Oh, Barry knows how dangerous everything is down here!" Alison murmured wickedly. "I will do all I can for you," Renaldo said. "But that might be of little help. A note to the chief will gain you an interview, but I'm afraid nothing will come of it. There are millions to be made if anyone could gain access to the mines. It has been tried many times but no one has ever succeeded." "I will appreciate that. . . . And I will need a guide and interpreter. You know someone who speaks the language?" 'Yes. I will have someone here in the morning, but don't say what your mission is or you will get no one to go with you. We will start for the plantation at sun-up," Renaldo said pleasantly. "It is better to get under the cover of the jungle before the sun gets too high." "Is there a train that goes there?" Allison asked Renaldo laughed softly. "Yes, senorita, a train—a train of mules." • (To Be Coutluued) E DELIVER We pick up and deliver laundry and dry cleaning. 2-day service.
