FACE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE (AKK.) COUKIKR NEWS FJUDAY, APRIL 12, 'l9'10 Baseball's Back To Old Standard - Yankees and Dodgers Return To New York With Old-Ttme Zip '. BY CARL M!N»Q(J1ST ... Unll«J Press Sports Writer : KKW YORK, April 12. (UPt — Me time baseball came back to the trig town today for the first time sinc e the 1941 World Series and coincidental!)' • the opponents aie the same as in that fateful year— the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Yankees. Ill fairness to the guys who kepi the Major leagues fc'oJng during the Intervening war years, it must be emphasized .thiit there was haseba); of a sort from 1912 until 1945. The fans loved It, the boys overseas regarded it HS a cherished symbol of wlial they were fighting lor, and lire late President Roosevelt thought enough of it as a home-front necessity to give It nn annual "green light" to operate. ] But as the stars went away one by one to the grimmer name, (he brand of baseball grew progressively more interior until at the finish few of the IB major league teams would have been able lo do more than to have made a Rood race of It In a first rate prewar minor circuit. • Along wllh the return of first class talent and the prosperity thai riurked the first golden age of SIKH I in the era after the last war, there ,ar* Indications thai this may lie a most extraordinary year. There may be a new reign of wonderful nonsense." Throuhgmil tlic Spring training days ball players have, been jumping to the fabulously wealthy Mexican league, whose operators, the Pasquel brothers have more shekels than probably any of the major league owners. Some of the play- «rs have jumped back, making for a state of uncertainty where anything can happen and probably will. yesterday wns as good on example of what to expect as any. The Yankees and Dodgers playing nt Baltimore had a game railed because small boys swarmed on lo the field far a close look at their heroes. In Richmond, Va., the Cleveland Indians got help from ail electric light wire in beating the New York Giants. 4 lo 3. The •wire played a freak role. Pat Eeerey of the Indians popped up a high fly that looked like n sure out until it struck the wire and went foe a double. A minule later, Mick- .ey Rocco singled Scercy home with the winning rlln Van tingle Mimgo of the Gianls who WHS a "good boy*' last year and led Ihe pitching staff with H victories, got off the straight and narrow path and manager Mel Ott had to suspend him indefinitely for breaking training rules. And Joe DiMaggio of the Ynnks reported thai- he had a P»ln in the n*ck. That definitely gets things back to normal. It's a sale Viet th^l he'll be a "pain in the neck" lo «vwy pitching staff in the Amcr- caii league. WARNING ORDER !• the Chancery Court, Cliicl;a- w»bi District, Mississippi C'ouu- . • ty, Arkansas.

That's why they couldn't understand Van Lin- g!c (The New) Mungo when he accepted a fee for doing odd jobs around tlie Giants' Polo Grounds In the summer of 104^. Outraged Brooklyn considered it the greatest bit of sin since a lifelong Democrat from Greenpoint was heard applauding Herbert Hoover in the new.srcels. Hoover't only a Republican—ho wore starched collars. That combination, In Brook- Ivn, was equivalent to siding with j an umpire. So, through 1042 and 1943, before spending a year In the Army, and all through last season, Van Llnglc (The New) Mungo was spoken of In Greetipoinl In hushed tones.
