The bearer of these tidings, a distinguished member of the Richmond literary set named Larrj Leonard, says that ticket orders already are flooding the box office from as far as 80 miles out. He is prepared to predict that his City's admittance to the fastest of the minors will prove fully as successful as that of Havana. "Richmond always has been a bood baseball town, even When it was in Class B," said Leonard. "It always made money, Now that our fans are being given an opportunity to see really good ball they are genuinely enthusiastic. "The man who deserves the most credit for getting _ us a big-time franchise probably' is our mayor, Dr. Edward Haddock He never gave up fighting for it even when our chances looked the worst We have a great Owner, too, in Harry Seibold. He will make a go of it if anybody in the world could." The club is, Leonard confessed, faced with some lai'ge-looking problems at the moment, mostly concerned with seating, but he is confident they will be licked before the city's Confederate lay their first exhibition game at .home against the New York Yankees April 8. That was somewhat inspired scheduling by the way. "Right now we have only one stand seating 4,500," Leonard said, "but they expect to start work this week on another stand which' Ayill bring the total up to 8,000 by opening day. Eventually we expect to have a plant seating around 12,000." The operators of the new club, Leonard said, figure that they havt about a half-million potential customers within a 30-miler radius of downtown Richmond. They expect to draw heavy patronage from nearby Petersburg and other communities. Producing a club which will be good enough to stay up in the race and sustain the fans' interest is, of cours.e another problem. The team Richmond inherited finished fourth in last year's International League race as the Baltimore Orioles. Seibold and his associates are doing much traveling and talking • in an effort to give the club more muscle. Nashville Teams Come Here Tonight Two Hope senior basketball teams will entertain a couple from Nashville tonight, the first game starting at 7 o'clock.

W) —Npltfe Dani-j sprang another surprise yesterday with the naming of a. 35- year old assistant football coach', Terry Brennan, to succeed Franjc Leahy as head coach. ., It haw been felt by many that Brennan's age would prevent serious consideration for what is probably-the. most pressure-packed col lege touching job' iu the counlry. Leahy's high opinion of his young assistant was -t big factor in the choice. "Teny is a very talented young man who borders almost on the genius as a coach," Leahy said, 'His r.ge is 116 banicr. Coaching is a young man's game.

SYNOPSIS Dr. Stephen Carr and his wife, Shelly, are on their way to a (umlly dinner party honoring, his venerable mother's birthday; Thougn oolite to her always.

Shelly determines- to orove her mutal. • CHAPTER TWO •••DO YOU know that girl?" Shelly asKed when the doctor came around; the oar and got into thp seat- beside her. "Who?" ne asked, more intent on. the panel buttons, on sliding the big car away from the curb. "That woman on the walk— you spoke to her." "Oh. No, 1 don't know her— Ijut^-oh, you .know — a doctor In a place like this—" He shrugged, •'She looked; vaguely familiar. Do ybii know who she is?" ••Well— J think— she's with all thpse strange people who are coming Into town for the new clay pits, the roads and things they are ijiiUdirig. Several hundred men, I tn|nk, mostly, laborers." '• «'That girJ didn't look like a laborer's wife." ; V Aren't there bosses? Civil en- girie.erJsi and such? It's an outside company doing the work, your father said. A gross contractor, he called it." "That's right," Stephen agreed, "They even have their own medical setup." "Their own doctor?" "No, but health examinations, Insurance — all that sort of thing. They'll use our facilities, but not through the plant, as such." "1 see. 3fou Know, Stephen, it's made an acute housing shortage." ' "I'd thin'H so." "Several of the big houses In our part of town have taken in these people." "Did you say that girl . . ." "1 was getting ready to say it, but you talk so much, you don't let me." Stephen had stopped for what everyone In town called their ridiculous Courthouse Square traf- Qc system of lights, and he could turn a laughing face to his wife. She smiled at him. "The Rollers have made a couple of apartments, Dorlna told me, and attractive girl lives Uiero." think that in one of "1 expect the Pollers can use the money. They have a burden In that nephew," "J saw some taken in there. twrel" "I'd think they'd have enough furniture." "Well— this Is gossip, Stephen, of tjie Kltthen variety," furni, glanced at him mischievously. "At odd times you get touchy about gossip." "This Isn't one of the times. What have you heard, or seen ?" "Dorina told mo that over the years the Pollers have sold a lot ot their things—some of the rooms were empty. As you say, they don't have an excess of cash, though Miss Roxie manages to keep her hair blonde and to buy medicine. 1 saw Sohnle's truck there last week—that's the secondhand store—bringing in some second hand furniture." "Junk," he qualified. "1 was thinking of what it must be to live in such a place. That girl we passed—she's no older than 1 am, and she looks like a sweet, intelligent girl." "Maybe she's never known better, darling." Maybe not. But it's so dreadful to have no home of your own—to keep moving about as these crews evidently do, from Job to Job, always living in makeshift rooms and apartments, witH dirty secondhand furniture. I think that girl's husband is an engineer. He's a big, husky man, and goes off early every morning in a car full of sunburned men. He sometimes carries a square box that looks as if it might contain Instruments." "Transit," Stephen agreed. "He's gone all day, and 1 comes home late in the afternoon, his clothes stained. He works very hard, I'm sure." "They make good money," "What good is that?" Shelly asked indignantly. "His wife—that thin, dark girl 1 —here she's alone in a strange town, living In that house with those Poller 'girls' and their moron nephew, with all that ugly old furniture— Well, it must be hard, Stephen." "1 suppose it is hard, darling, but in their-line of work they simply have to . . ." "1 know. We all have to make compromises. But 1 get to wondering. It would be hard to make friends when she knows she'll be here for only a year. And, of course, Norfolk isn't going to help her." They had reached the edge of town and were driving along the highway: the white fences pfCarr property began to flash first ph one side of the road, ajtirj then on both. It was popularly said that the Carrs owned all of Norfolk and halt of the county. The former was an exaggeration; the latter scarcely was. The Carrs did own the underground rights oi that much land, and 9 great part pj the top soil, tpo. The J*efra,ctpry was the town/s. leading ^yeryone JB fowjj, >| pnly , owed t*ij Uvlng to th<?

Stephen turned the car into ;the lane which would become the house driveway and soon drew up at .thi impressive back doec-of his father's house. / '•, "I never come here," Stephen said thoughtfully, "but what. I am conscious of the disappointment it's been to my family that I didn't go Into the business." "Oh, but you're such a gooA doctor!" said Shelly with warm loyalty. • "1 don't think that makes any difference," he said slowly. "They didn't want me to be a doctor, and they'll never make peace with the idea. Never." "What a strong-minded boy you must have been!" "Spoiled is the usual word '. for it." This was not the first discussion of the matter between Stephen and Shelly, but she welcomed this brief postponement of a move Into the house, and the evening which was sure to be tense and overwhelming. "Strangely e n o u g h," Stephen went on, "E.J. .helped me there. He told Dad that If I wer]e humored, I'd get tired ot the pro]-; ecu" Ho chuckled dryly. "I've heard Ruth throw it up to i: him since." •/' Shelly laughed. Stephen's sister, Ruth Maupin, thirty-five, and :his brother, E.J., forty, squabbled 1 like children. ;: "1 gave a good deal of thought to my ambition," Stephen 'continued. "1 understood Father's wanting me to go into the business. It was a blow when 1 didn't," "And another one," Shelly teased, "when you didn't marry Eleanor." "Yes," he laughed. "Mother wag the- disappointed one there. Both she and Dad have been good sports," "So have you!" ( He glanced at her questionlngly, "Why, of course!" she asserted, "You came back here and worked hard as a country doctor, when you might have lived like—" ; "Hey, hey, hey I" he protested. "You're on the wrong track, Mrs. Carr. Don't forget, Norfolk la the third largest town in the state. And growing like all get' out. Why, darling, for a doctor wanting to do private practice as against hospital staff work, this is the ideal setup." "It is, eh?" asked Shelly, hep tone faintly tart, "Yet you're 1 still determined—Vou have quite 'defj« nttely decided, Stephen?" He opened the par door. "Yes," he qgld as he stepped out tq the gravel- He came around to her s^e, and bent toward her tenderly, "1 reaj}?e ft will be ijajjj on you, darling—tnpugh, with th« family here, you'll no,* he. •
