At'. the same time, a mobile bri- ide. of government farm experts »nned out the grain belt in an Iffqrt to sell more farmers on the Kfi'Wiimenl offer of a 30-cent-a- •kM bonus on wheat and corn Krtivereei'by May 25. Officials .said they were encour- jed" at the response so far but H.. Vi "overly optimistic." The flour order amendment was reilared several days ago while ffleials still were studying the or- er; itself. Even then, some offl- ials feared that bakers would lake ^vantage of the lack of regulation nd, make the entire cut in bread. It; finally was decided to \v>th- iold ; the amendment, however, and e't .the bakers work out their own ray's of absorbing the cut. Offi- lals did not believe the bakers I'ould dare to cut bread production Ibrfroportionalely and take a chance in "rousing public anger. The government already has >*eii informed that at least two to the dispute which took place under the Ebbeti Field's stands where Christian, a strapping, blond ex- soldier, claims Durocher ar\d Moore assaulted him. Smiling from time to time, Durocher said that his attention had freoueiitly been attracted by Christian's loud voice, "riding" the Dodger team and "calling my players thieves and crooks, as well as myself." "Oh the night of June 9. he directed his remarks to Bill Hart. who was then our third baseman," Durocher continued. The Dodger manager said that Christian's razzing made Hart so nervous and angry that the third baseman was cursing when he returned from the field. Then Christian, who was known to the Dodgers then only by his voice began to razz Curt Davis, who was pitching for Brooklyn against Philadelphia June 9. "About the fifth Inning we heard him shout, 'Davis, you're a crook, you're throwing the game.' " Duro- cfier told the court. "About that time I had ordered the hit and run play. The batter missed the ball but tlie player got to second. It was a close decision, very close, but it was matter of the umpire's judgment. "After the decision. I heard this man Christian holler down. 'You're of beating Ubn, was not called upon lo testify. If convicted, they face maximum iwimllles of five yea>s in Sing sing prison and heavy fines. Dnrocher. who has been u playa or manager in organized baseball for 21 years, replied to his attorney's question that "Certainly fans have u right to holler at the game Nobody can complain about fans Iwllering—it's part of the game " But Ourocher said that Christian had violated all rules of decency. As an example. Durocher said "One day, Hart came back to the bench, lie was jittery and pale I had to remove him from the game He was white wltli rage. That day I went over to the third base coaching hue. I heard this fellow iChris- tian) shout out at Hart 'Ytui ought to go back to New Orleans. Send his wife with him. She is runninc around with other men.' Hart couldn't stand that.-" During cross-examination, a prosecution attorney asked Durocher "How many players were mad." "No Brooklyn player Is bad in mv opinion," the Dodger pilot replied' "I said mad. not bad," tlie attorney responded. John J. Breslin, who Is associated with Barshay as a defense attorney, testified that he advised Durocher to make the payment of SC750 to Christian, in settlement of a civil action for damages, after the Brooklyn baseball club had notified Durocher that his contract would not be renewed until the civil actli brought by Christian wns ended ,,»-»» ,... u . ..i-_^j b*>u v av ik,»ou t r. ^ 111*111. \_iiniaLlUll ilUJlcL ClOWn YOU Baltimore bakers plan to cut bread a crook with Durocher You're u —•"""-- '«---—•" - •-•• crook and n thief, and you're in ca- duction to concentrate on pas- There also was ve the same thing in other cities. reason to was hap- Hjeanwhile. the Agriculture De- lartnicnt disclosed that this coun- ry : j" delivered 2.046,395.381 pounds f *food and- agricultural products rver'seas during January, includ- ng;; 931,460,452 pounds to United Nations relief. exports included 813.535.750 of grain cereals. 59,583,690 _™ of ttieat.51,279,318 pounds of tugar. 40,314,042 pounds of fruits and vegetables and 38.732,907 pounds of ;ipeeial commodities. p'lher major items were 44.663.937 >punds of cotton .and fibers, 37,15^(114 - pounds of dairy products, 24,864.401 pounds of tobacco, 987.- tt56'ipounds ol poultry and 3,04X824 pounds of fats and oils.

' Durocher said it was then "I made up my mind to talk to this fellow and I called Joe Moore," co-defendant with Durocher and a patrolman specially assigned to Ebbets Field. Durocher. who has a reputation among baseball players as a fiory manager, ready to support his players in any argument, then related that Moore went up to the second tier of the Ebbets Field stands and brought Christian down behind the Dodger dugout. "Moore had Christian by the arm and brought him Into a little room behind the dugout." Durocher continued. "I stood very close to Christian and pointed my finger at him and I said to him 'Have you a mother?' He made no answer, just looked at the floor. "Then I repeated, 'Have you a mother?' and then he said. 'Yes.' 'Well, how would you like it if after this game Ls over I went to your house, rang the bell, asked for your mother and called her the names you have been shouting out here tonight?' Still quoting his own words lo Christian. Durocher continued "But one thing I won't stand for, I will not allow my boys to be called thieves and crooks and cliarged with throwing games. That's all." Durocher said he then started up the dugout steps when Christian asked him "What do you call insulting remarks?"
