LOUIS (UP) A pitcher with two artificial legs is throwing a better screwball here than the i major leagues ever will see. He is Clarence "Bud" Voelllnger of East St. Louis who hasn't lost • game this year, and hasn't been j •cored upon. Voeiiinger pitches in the cork ball league, which is somewhat unknown throughout the country. .A corkball is about the size of a pii:m. the bat the player uses is a half size bigger than a broom •lick. The ball is made of cork with a horsehule cover. The curves a man can pitch with It and the •kill required to hit it are beyond any standards used in baseball. But Voellinger. 23, who had his legs torn off by a German land mine' when he was in the infantry, is fast becoming the best cork- ball pitcher in the area. Corkball is a great aid to handicapped players. It requires no running.

You'd ask them in ... of course... even though they filled your living room to overflowing. And then, one by one, they would tell you their stories. One would tell you about the fight his organization is waging against disease and crippling illness . . . Another would touch your heart with the story of a homeless child or a lonely old man ... A third would tell you how youth services curb juvenile delinquency in your town ... Each one would separately ask your help, And you'd want to help every one! But you'd wonder . . . i*How much should I give to this ?... How much to that?" And that is exactly why, in our community, we have a United Red Feather campaign. The needs of each service have been studied and considered by a group of our leading citizens. To save YOUR time, only one volunteer solicitor will call on you. When that caH comes, open your heart and your pocketbook. Remember that yon are giving for ALL Red Feather services. So give enough for ALL. And give enough for a FULL YEAR. Thanks!
