Robinson Jnvitational Tour- ience for the press to gather about the amazing manager t>f the livd- j time world charhpion Yankees and wonder what in the world he Is talking ab6ut. In our personal opinion, gained over a long peHod of'time, it has become a wonflerful game with Old Case, one he thought up himself and 'which he is secretly enjoying Very much. By talking in 'the purest jabberwocky he has learned that he can avoid answering questions and at the same time leave his audience struggling against a mild form of mental paralysis. Well, did the master of the Yankees have fun at his first meeting of the 1954 season with a room- lull off the local pressXincluding television cameras! Some of those who got caught in the flow of Ste'ti- gel rhetoric are thinking of 'demanding 'that Casey's" employers provide a tape recorder for his next public ' appearance so they can get a playback- and try to find out what he actually did say. If they do, it will become a priceless document. As (hough by plan, Casey didn't wait for a question 'to be asKed. He-simply planted'himself solidly and began to talk. Approximately an hour'and one half later (some claimed it was longer) he stopped talking. He did not paragraph, punctuate or ! identify by name. Some thought he talked in sentences, but this was" a matter "of opinion. All agreed that he talked loud and 'that he almost certainly was talking about the Yankees. Perhaps the widest division of opinion concerned a point in his discourse at which the manager either sajcf ;that\his team should go on and win six or eight straight penants without "much trouble or that it would 'be extremely lucky to win again this year,considering the strength.-of the; opposition. We have since read it both ways, and both sound all right.

Leahy. 45, announced he was stepping out because of his health. He feared the "possibly fatal* consequences of another attack of pancreatitis, a stomach disorder that put him in bed in the middle nf last season. His exit followed an 11-season career tecond only to Knute Rockne's in success. Backfield Coach Johnny Lujack, one of those mentioned as a possible successor, said, "I just can't believe it; I was convinced Frank would never leave Notre Dame." Lujaclc knew nothing of the decision until advised by reporters at his Chicago home. Leahy himself indicate <1 he had talked the matter over with only one- Notre Dame official — the Rev. Theodore Hes- bnugh, president of the Catholic university.. "I haven't even talked to Athletic Director Ed Krause," said I.eadhy.

This was confusing because nobody had said a word about Al, eightei- good or bad. From it; all, the most general impression was that Casey felt he would have- a pretty good club again, and that he would "be glad to add Billy Pierce, Chicago's great little lefty, to'his staff if he could get him.

"You keep looking at me." Stephen c^ine out'of his own dressing room to loolt even more intently at Shelly.' "Arid why shouldn't a man loole at his wife?" In the mirror, her violet eyes smiled at h.ini. "It wasn't exactly a critical look," she analyzed. "You don't (ike me in pink," she said. "My darling..." He was putting en his shoes. "I like you—In any color!" Shelly touched the three coral roses which she had tucked into her belt. She stepped back from the mirror to look again at the dfess. Deceptively simple — and costly — it was primarily a slender Sheath of pink lame. "Your mother will expect us to be dressed up," she said in an anxious tone, ''• '.'Mother doesn't care what we wear-" "Well, of course, I meant the family as a whole. Her birthday is one of the rituals..." 'Stephen settled his Jacket against his neck. She smiled at him. "I'm not being captious, darling. Really I'm not, Of course your mother's birthday Is Important. And of course you want me to look just right." He came to her and started to put his arm around her, then looked in alarm at her bare shoulders. "Powder?" "Ot course." 'She smiled at him provocatively, and gingerly he bent toward "her, kissed her lips. Chickling, he went pver to the fjreplace and selected a single white' blossom from the arrangement ' in the bisque mantel vases. There was still a shadow in tils ^ne blue''eyes, "Perhaps you're leaving an overdose of family to(Jay," he said thoughtfully. "Didn't you play cards at Ruth's this afternoon?" "NcV Stephen." she answered coolly, "I didn't fo." He took a cigaret from the little box on the table, and ii| l| with £reat care. She so disliked the occasional times when toe tried to force his family' to accept the bride ol hla choice, against their own decision in that matter, that ahe was relieved when he iauj»che4 Into 9 mild lecture on the subject you and 1 could live alone In the world, you could do nothing wrong'. Nothing!" She smiled at him.' "But..." "That's it! We don't live alone. We live in a small city, crowded, with my patients—" He laughed. "More or less crowded," he amende ed. "But it certainly is 'crowded with my family. Carrs all over the place! And I know it was hard for you to come In, a stranger, and have to fit yourself Into—" Especially, thought Shelly, when none of that "crowd" did anything to make a place for me. But she didn't speak. "I know our local society must seem pretty absurd to you at times," Stephen went on in a worried tone, "And for good reasons! But, still, darling, this is your horiie, and will be—and wouldn't you be nappier If you tried to like our parties?
