Sports Roundup KBW YORK, July M (/P>— YOU can g«l into * red hot argument In almo«t any major league city but Brooklyn by nominating a candidate for 1950 "rookie of the year" honori. . . . In Brooklyn, you'll only net hollow laugh*. . . . it'« this way. . . , Top candidates In the National League ««m to be Sam Jethro, The Braves speedster; Bob Miller, Phillies' pitcher who won eight In a row and Ous Bell of the Pirates. . . . When arguing starts, you probably can toss In the cardinals' Bill Howerton, Joe Adcock of the Reds, Bob Borowski and maybe Preston Ward of the Cubs and possibly i few more names If you can decide Just when a guy ceases to be a rookie. ... In the American. Boston'i big Walt Dropo seems to get the call on his hitting, and they say there are considerably worst fielders playing first base. Very much in the picture are Cleveland's Flip Rosen and Luke Easier (If they quality), Chtco Car- rasqucl and Bob Cain of the White Sox, Tom Upton of the Browns and Sandalio Consuego, Conrad Marrera and Irv Noren of the Senators. . . . Reason for the rueful looks In Brooklyn, where the rookies are just rookies, is that Jethroe, Ward. Carrasquel and Noren all were sold out of the Dodger chain. They scouted Bell, too, when he was Just a kid but decided he was a year away from pro baseball. II'JS a Tufl Shof Joe Bach, New St. Bonavcnture grid coach, took up golf in dead earnest this summer and finally found an opponent he thought was In his own clnss. . . . Ted Mar- chibroda, star soph Quarterback, apparently didn't know much about golf either. . . . But in a showdown. Ted's second shots turned out to be beauties and Bach finally slipped up to see Just how he did it. Noticing Joe's stealthy approach. Maribroda looked up sheepishly and remarked: "what a coincidence, coach. The ball landed right on a lee." Don't be surprised if Boo Fcrriss gets back into [he big leagues. He's chucking great ball for Birmingham and tells friends his arm feels better than it has in three years. . Wisconsin is claiming to be the "Florida" of pro football. It has four teams training there; California has three and no other state more than one. McMurry College's Wilford' Moore, whose name has been mentioned In connection with football coaching vacancies at bigger schools, Is calming the alumni by building a house in Abilene. . . . Maybe he'd better not move in before McMurry (pop. 650) plays Tulsa, Midwestern, West Texas and Mississippi Southern. . . .

Governor, if you are so strong for veterans will you explain to them why you have selected as the three associates closest to you men who are not veterans but who spent the war years in the F. B. I. to avoid war service. When Dean Morley retired from the F. B. I. on December 10, 1948, he was receiving $8,808.75 per year. When Henry Wood retired on November 30, 1945, he was drawing $5,180.00 per wear. When Howard Gladden retired on March 15, 1946, he was drawing $4,080.00 per year. These arc the three "men that you have surrounded yourself with. None of the three was in any branch of the Armed Services and all three were drawing high salaries in secure positions while the G. I'g were fighting (he war. Governor, do yon think you have been true to the veterans of Arkansas when you failed (o put a single veteran in a position of responsibility in your organization.
