SATURDAY, JANUARY 15,1938. ^THE MORNING HERALD, HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND. SEVEN SALARY CUT FOR OLE D!Z Dean Is Up in Arms over Slash in His Salary with St. Louis Cardinals Rradenton, Flu., Jan. 14, (ff). — The St. Louis Cardinals baseball club opened its annual salary sideshow featuring the one ami only Dizzy Dean today. This year, for the first lime in a number of seasons there was a note of seriousness in the spealcrs' bullyhoo. "Ole Din" wasn't so hot last season—winning only 111 games and losing 10—so the Cards would utl his pay more than 50 per cent. Branch Rickey, vice president of the 'club, said at St. Louis the Cards had mailed Dean a contract calling for $10,000 for one season or. the mound. "Ole Diz", receiving the contract - hero and immediately declaring he would return it unsigned, insisted the ?10,000 offer represented a cut of $15,500. Expected a Out "We made Dizzy a straight unqualified offer of. ?10,000 for his services in 1988," said Rickey, "there are no clauses providing for a bonus based on victories or anything else. It is what we thought we ought tp offer him in view of circumstances." The big pitcher—voted the major disappointment of the 1937 sports world—said: "I expected a cut—but not such a big one. When I was winning 20 or more games a season for the Cardinals they didn't raise my pay liy $15,000, so why should they cut me that much when 1 happened 10 a bad season through no fault o? my own. "I think I am entitled to at least $20,000 this year. Certainly my salary should not he trimmed to less than ?17.500. That's positively the lowest they can go if they expect me to pitch and I don't know that I will accept that." GOOD OFFER Pittsburgh, Jan. 14 (/Ff — The Pitt "News," campus newspaper of the University of Pittsburgh, offered readers a new service: free ads "to help you solve your problems." Came this problem in reply: "Do you have a date for the junior prom? would like to escort Pitt woman to dance Friday. Will spend reasonable amount on incidentals." BUY YOUR COAL —FROM— CUSHWAS' Phone 2200 and get THE BEST ON DOWN THE SPORTS TRAIL By PAUL MICKELSON New York, Jan. 14, (/P).—Putting two and two together—and getting four—between peeks at the inconi iiiR mall: DISPUTED FAME — Though a record toial ot 24P voters has been received In the third Poll for new members to baseball's hall of fame, it. is doubtful if more than two will make the grade with the required 75 per cent vole. In the previous two polls only eight, succeeded in crashing Hie portals — T; Cobb, Babe Ruth, Ilonus Wag ner, Christy Mathowson, Waltei Johnson, Napoleon Lajoic, Tris Speaker and Cy Voting. Not one of them was a unanimous choice. On the basis of last year's poll, Orover Cleveland Alexander, Kddl Collins and Wee Willie Keeler stand the better chances. So far this corner hasn't discovered vote against Alexander and we hope he makes it. "Olrl Pete" really was a great pitcljer and baseball's accolade would do him a tremendous amount of good right now when he isn't riding any kind of a crest. HOLDOUTS—After the fancy licking they took last spring, it's doubtful if there'll hi many serious holdouts along the major league front this year. Most members of thy annual holdout society are approaching the washed up stage and cp.n't afford to do too much yelling.

Giuseppe'will sign for about ?25,000, quite a chunk for a third year player. He made about $100,000 in 1937 with the help of many sidelines and should do even better in MS. BUILD-UP—Bitsy Grant, the little master showman ot tennis, is back at his old tricks nf building players up for a big letdown. During the Miami Biltmore tournament, Bitsy took time out to tell what a great player Bobby Riggs' was. Then ho licked Bobby in the finals. But maybe it's a. real omen. L spring, Bitsy gave Don Budge the build-up, licked the redhead twice in a row and then looked on Budge became the world amateur ehamp and tennis hero. Incideiially. we hear the United States Lawn Tennis Associalion now wishes it never induced Budge to go to Australia to escape tempting pro offers in the United States. A serious physical breakdown of the redhead would mean goodbye lo that Davis Cup and one of the greatest lennis seasons since tile "Golden Bra."

Feeding Problems—II When a child refuses to eat, it may be assumed (1) that he is physically ill, (2) that, he does not like the given food, which "disagrees with the child," (3) that he is emotionally disturbed, or (4) that he is trying to get-attention or sympathy, or lo dominate. The first two conditions are rel- alively easy to establish or to rule out. The acutely sick child "goes off" his feeding suddenly. There may he present suggeslivo symptoms such as fever, flush, running nose or diarrhea. Such a child's lack of appelitc is then merely one ot a group of symptoms diagnosis and treatment. Some children may be allergic to certain foods and hence refuse, them when served. Kggs and milk, common in the child's diet, for this rea.son may be consistently rejected. Corroborative symptoms, such as rash, eczema, diarrhea, hives and asthmatic manifestations, are likely lo be found. Feeding difficulties however are more commonly due to psychological than physical causes. No other part of the body is so directly affected by emotions as the digestive tract. And a child burdened by fears and anxieties; agitated by anger, excited and over-stimulated by play, is in no fit condition to eat, or to digest and assimilate his food. The child's position in the family is essentially dependent. Natural- jly he will strive for recognition and power. Ho may show off, be an exceptionally good boy, or prove obstreperous. Most of these cases can be handled by stripping meal-time of all its emotional elements. Food should he served quietly and simply, without special appeal or admonition. Allow the child enough time to eat his food, then quietly remove what remains. Do not. allow any food between meals. The ehild 'soon [loams there is no gain in balking. However, it is wise to consider Iho situation carefully. Something which should be cleared away may bother Ihe child. CLINGS TO GAIN Washington, Jan. M (JP)— Supreme Court Justice Benjamin N. Cardozo, seriously ill with heart disease, clung tonight to a gain he achieved more than 24 hours ago. His physicians said they viewed | Ihis as a "hopeful s'gn."
