New York (JP) More kid stuff: . . . Maybe pop doesn't take junior out to the woodshed these days and apply the razor strop just because the kid fans with the bases full, but pop apparently is determined that junior will be healthy and athletic. . . . The latest suggestion is that kids should be encouraged to take up golf because "Its a game they can start at the age of nine and quit at 90." . . . Freddie Corcoran, the P. G. A. tournament bureau head, already has gone on record as favoring a pro-sponsored junior championship . . . Now brother George, president of the Carolina PGA, goes a step further with this suggestion: "I think the public courses, even the country clubs, should have free children's days. . . . We have been concentrating on high school and college golf; we really should go back to grammar and primary grades, that is, to encourage all youngsters, as that is the age when they should be developing a golf swing. . . . I maintain every grammar school, every high school, and every college should be equipped with golf driving nets and make it compulsory for every boy and girl to take this golf training." More Truth Than Poultry Babe Herman, hardly a spring chicken, left his California turkey ranch to become pinch-hitter for the Dodgers . . .

JURORS RETURN OPEN VERDICT IN MYSTERY Rockford. I1L UP) Investigat ing the unsolved death in an elevator of Mrs. Blanche Campbell. 38, a Grand Jury returned an open verdict Saturday, placing no blame for the June 18 tragedy.

BY JAMES MARLOW Washington UP) Rep. John E. Rankin, white-haired Mississippi Democrat, said: "It would stop every damn strike in this country." He meant a bill he has introduced in Congress- He probably has a beaut of a fight ahead before he can even get it considered on the floor. Narrowing his sharp brown eyes. Rankin said in an interview his bill means: 1. Even in a plant where a union has a closed-shop contract, a World War H veteran could be hired without having to join the union or pay dues. Strike-Breakers 2. Where there's a strike even in a plant with a closed-shop contract veterans could be hired without having to join the union or pay dues. No. 1 is contrary to the kind of union - management contracts which have Government recognition. No. 2 could make strikebreakers of veterans. But Rankin says veterans should not have to pay "tribute" to a union to get a job.' In a radio address Sunday Rankin said: "If this bill passes and becomes the law of the land It will break more of the strikes in our defense industries than anything else that has been done since the war began." Rankin introduced the bill in the House. It was assigned to the House Committee on Veteran Legislation. Rankin is chairman of that committee. The committee approved the bill. Organized labor certainly will fight the measure, bring all the pressure it can on Congressmen to kill the bill. Hot Spot But the bill places Congressmen on a hot spot: They might fear that, if they voted for the bill, labor unions would look upon them as enemies of labor. They might fear that, if they voted against the bill, some veterans would look upon them as enemies of veterans. Rankin is shrewd. He knows the tricks and rules of Congress better most most Congressmen. He may be able to pull one out of the hat and get the bill before the House in spite of any efforts to choke it off by silence.
