COtlBDBR.NKY/S DOPE BUCKET BI J. P. FK1HN1) WRITES FAMILY When coach Arvll Green took over as head coach of the Blyllio- ville High school Clilckasaws In the Fait of 1942 his special attention was directed early to a lanky youngster who showed tremendous speed, a definite amount of athletic ability and boundless confidence. ' Pulling his nlde. Sylvester (Pop) Moslcy, off to one side, Coach Green inquired who he was, and nil about him. "Why, that's Wallace Hay, a boy from Armorcl who said he was go- Ing lo play end on this football team", "Pop 1 Informed him. "Well, from wlml I have seen In this short time I have been here, it's okay by me." the Chick chieftain blurted with a gleam of satisfaction In his eye. To make a short story shorter, these predictions nnd assertions never materialized, to the sincere regret of Coach Green, Pop, and the entire Clilcknsnw band, to say nothing ot loyal, faithful local fans The reason: well, blame It on a combination of youth, indomitable spirit, patriotism, and the other qualities that go in the phys- cal mental and moral makeup of :hc average American boy in the ;imc of ,dire need' Wally responded :o the call of service and cast his lot wllh Hie Navy. That was back in 1942. and Wally Is now seaman, first class and going strong. There were two other of the Hay boys who were members of the Chicks, but neither showed the iromisc of Wally. Connie received a medical discharge from the Army just before lh D 1943 grid season closed. The other Is Paul. LANDS OVERSEAS Because of the fact that he Is dc- 'initcly on the march as the American Nnvy hunts for the sight of yellow gntne, Wally's mall has not been consistent lo his family, Mr. incl Mrs. D. S. Hay. In fnc'l, they liad not heard from him In some :ime until the following letter came which is almost self explanatory. Oddly, his APO Is (he same as Staff Sergt. Bill Crowe, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Crowe of Huffman, ind who was one of Blythcvllle's lending softbnll and tennis players. _ , June 14, 1944.

No business, however large, can function without good smaller businesses working with it day by day. The oil wells and refineries of Esso Marketers could not sell their output without the vast army of local, independent dealers and distributors who bring the bulk of our products to you. At war, we have seen these businessmen do a.magnificent job. . They have worked under most difficult rationing restrictions. Their manpower shortage haa grown worse and worse. They have had to push old equipment to the limit. And still they have done an outstanding job in helping to hold the nation's transportation together. After the war they will have new tough problems to face-in modernizing facilities, replacing old equipment, expanding their businesses.' To help them do this we announce the Esso Marketers Business Assistance Plan. ' THE PLAN, which will be revised from time to lime to keep pace with now developments, includes: 1. Suggestions foe post-war service station designs. 2. A list of recommended equipment now generally available, to which will 1« added new equipment from time lo lime. 3. Modernization of existing service stations to meet post-war needs for petroleum products and the han- dling of oilier services for automobiles, trucks and air travel. 4.

LOUISIANA Baseball Club Without Doctor 1$ Out Of Luck NEW YORK, July 17. (UP)-Doctors tire Important people lo baseball clubs these clays, with 4-F youngsters and brittle old timers dominating the plnyer lists, a ball club without a good doctor would be out. of luck. Taking earc of ball players Is almost a specialized branch of the medical profession, The old cycle of sprains, bruises, torn tendons and sore arms keeps tasobiill doctors busy. But general practitioners arcn'l called on to treat those ailments as often, Dr. Tiobert P. ilylaiul O f St. Ixwis is one of the best known of the medical men who devote much of their time to keeping uthlelcs In shape. Players from nil over the country have come to Dr. llyland lo see what can be done nlxnit sore arms. And he's helped plenty of them. , Another M. D. who ranks high In that field Is Dr. Robert Emmett Walsh of New York. Doctor Walsh is the team physician for the New York Yankees, And he's been doing « good Job of keeping the world champions on their feet. Most of his cases this year have hnd to do wllli legs. Not the Betty Grable kind, but the kind that gel twisted sliding into second. Dr. Walsh has worked on Tuck Stainback's fracture and Don Savage's wrenched knee. And he's put Ernie Bonham's back Inlo commission again. Dr. Walsh doesn't spend all his time with ball players. He's a prac- tloner at one New York hospital (Hirt works long hours on a draft, review board, and he has ivcciilly been appointed the head of surgery at another hospital. But he likes to keep athletes in shape lo play. And he's keeping the Yankees going—they wouldn't trade him for a .300 hitter. Baseball Standings umi'niL'i> VT » », .»._.:? MONDAY, JULY 17, 1944 !
