If Bobo never gels back in professional baseball, then the end will be as disappointing as the be- einr.lne was promising. But the big righthander is still hopng for another chance. "After the deal I got on my way out." Bobo said, "it's pretty hard to find anything good to say about baseball. But I love it and I guess I would jump at a decent chance to get back In the game." If Bobo is a bit bitter toward baseball it's hardly puzzling. Less than . a year after his no-hlltflr, he was out of baseball. He quit after he was let down league-by- league to the Class D. level. His sore arm, he says, was never treat ea. The 29-year-old Thomaston Ga.. native said he Is happy now working as a tool and die maker in Athens. Ga. But he can't get away from baseball, and the thought of returning to the majors. Alva L. Holloman is presently playing with an Industrial League team and coaching a Little League squad. His pretty wife shares his interest in baseball and they're both convinced that their son will be a great ball player. Holloman, who stands six-feet- two and is about 15 pounds overweight at 215, started his professional career in 1946 with Moultrie, G%. .in the Class D Georgia- Florida league. It wasn't' until 1953 that he fiot his first big chance in the majors and he made, that an unforgettable moment by opening his career with a no-hitter against the Philadelphia Athletics. But then Bobo started having trouble with his arm. His no-hitter was the only game he completed for the St. Louis Browns that season and he wound up with a record of three wins and seven setbacks. From St. Louis, Bobo went to Toronto and began his quick slide SHOE 'STORE HOPE BETTY ALLWHITE, linotype operator and machine tender, two years with the company. to the bush leagues. Then he decided to give the game up, at least for a while, "Now I want to get back in," he said. "I think I'm ready, but now I can't seem to gel a chance Maybe I'll get a break, I think I've got at least one coming." GMC Trucks Mile History Released ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., June': 17— A multi-million rhi!e history! for GMC trucks with Hydra-Matici transmission was unfolded today by three large truck fleet operators at the summer meeting of the Society of Automotive Engineers. The reports, made by representatives of Akers Motor Lines, Inc.; Cooper-Jarrett, Inc.; and Hertz Stations. Inc.. documented evidence thai the GMCs with Hydra- Matic transmission have recorded an unusual story on operating, economy, efficiency, and driving safety. The papers covered 257 of GMCs several different weight classifications having 4-speed-Hydra-Matics, 8-speed Hydra-Matics or the Twin Hydra-Matics used on the heavy duty, over-the-road highway tractors. Their total mileage, at the time the reports were prepared, was approximately 6,000,'000 miles. Reporting on the Twin Hydra- Matics, GMC model DFMG60, a ceb- over-engine Diesel, Walter J. Crocket of Cooper-Jarrett said their cost-per-mile (fuel, oil lubrication, repairs and tires) had been an average of 53 cents. Cooper-Jarrett uses tractors with conventional transmissions between Chicago and Somerset. Pa., while the GMCs with Twin Hydra-Matics are used more in the mountains of eastern Pennsylvania and on east, he added. '•It appears at this time that the greatest savings in operating and maintenance costs will be realized from the added engine life that is obtainable with the use of an automatic transmission," Crocket told the S. A. E. "The elimination of the human error that allows engines to be lugged by being in the wrong gear also helps save a great many wasted man hours in our maintenance shops that previously had been used to repair and re- tune engines that came in from a run so loaded and fouled upj from lugging, that they have had io be held for repairs before they! could go out for another run." I Crocket said tnat Cooper-Jarrett's! first units "are well over the one! hundred thousand mile mark with-j out an engine failure, and how much over this mileage they will go, we as yet do not know. I "I want to say in closing that ( while the Hydra-Malics transmission has not been entirely trouble- free, it has amazed us as to its economy of operation. The manufacturer has gone all the way in cooperating with us in solving our troubles. We anticipate far fewer troubles as we, and they, gain experience. "They as manufacturers must continue the research and testing to further improve the product, and we, as operators, must put this product in our fleet and reap the benefits from Its use. These bene» fits are surely there and we must take advantage of them." ICE COLO WATERMELONS At the 'S" Curve See us for your car needs.

Lou admits that his fight with Louis was "rather dull." His board of strategy planned for him to box carefully through 10 rounds anc then shoot for a knockout. In the sixth, Lou says, he tired of the slow cat-and-mouse game and tried to lure Louis by dropping his left and shooting the works with a countcrpunch. "But Louis threw a perfect punch," he recalled. "He knocked me down and almost out. Still I got up and took more than 20 additional punches by actual count before | it was stopped."

Only 87c Family of 6 Live in Auto Little Rock LITTLE ROCK. Wl—A family of six. including lour children under eight years old, lived for two weeks in an automobile in MacArthur Park here until a friendly concessionaire moved them into a trailer last night. The children's mother is across the street in University Hospital and may be there for several months. ^gj Their father, Elmer Gean, 53. a migrant farm worker from Ty- renza, Ark., says he doesn't know what he's going to do. He's been to the local welfare office twice and received $20 each time. He said he's almost out of money again and probably will head back for the welfare office. "I've never asked for help before," he said, "but I've got to d" something until my wife is well enough to leave thc hospital." ''J'-The wife, Jacqueline, 28, refused to come to Little Rock for treatment of a • spinal ailment unless the children came along. They were in Sherffield, Ala., when the trouble began so they drove back to Arkansas in their four-door Frazier sedan. Mrs. Gean's mother, Mrs. Vcrma Hardin of Cherokee, Ala., came along to take care of the children. Gean said he had 30 cents when f c family got to Little Rock. He parked the car near thc hospital and the vehicle served as living quarters until the move to the trailer. Thc children and their grandmother slept in the car, and Gean slept on a park bench. The present trailer home formerly was used as a concession stand. Persons in the neighborhood have donated food and clothing and have done some washing lor the children. t Thc children are three girls, two. ur and eight, and a boy, six. MacArlhur Park, formerly City Park, was Douglas MacArthur, who was born there when it was a military post, which his father commanded.

Disability Freeze Marks Work Increase The new disability freeze pro- Arkansas to Be Divided in 1956 Campaign, Faubus Is Almost Sure to Have Fight By WILLIAM W. HUGHES LITTLE ROCK (UP)— What Is the political status today of the first man to beat another man's quest for a second term as governor since Tom Terrall was defeated in 1926. Gov. Orval E. Faubus now has served six month's in the chief executives chair he assumed after defeating former Gov. Francis Cherry's bid for a second term. Ever since the Faubus inauguration, political observers have wondered how the man who rose from poverty and obscurity in the Ozark hills has fared as the governor of his state since his unexpected triumph in thc 1954 Democratic primary. Faubus also is caught in thc political spotlight as the first Democrat in more than a half-century who faced serious opposition from a Republican before he finally was elected. You can't look at history, specifically the Terrall defeat, in order to draw any conclusion. The man who beat Terrall, John J. Martineau, served only one year as governor, and then accepted an t ap- pointmcnt as a federal judge, never seeking a second term himself. Faubus, on the other hand, is almost certain to seek re-election in 1956. Two recent developments along thc state's political front have made people curious about the temperature the Faubus thermometer might be runnings. They arc the storm centers that have gatb ered about the State Education department, and thc proposal to refer the feed tax exemption bill visions of the social security law!to a vote of the people, have caused''a marked increase in| Faubus is closely tied up with work in Hempstead County, accord- both fights.

The equipment is divided into two 7Va-ton air-conditioners, each with a matching 195,000 BTU gas furnace, feeding into the same duct system—so duplicate machines are always available in case one fails. Another system of smaller, insulated ducts draws off heat from the gas-fired linotype pots with a power suction system, reducing the air-conditioner's burden in fighting summer's high temperatures in thc newspaper shop. The system is expected to hold maximum temperature in the shop to 80 degrees regardless of the summer sun. It is expected to do this with one 7 J /2-ton unit, backed up by the unit when required.
