TAGE 4—NATTGATUCK NEWS (CONN.), FRIDAY, NOV. 18, 1949 NEWS Collegiate Grid Poll Enters Semi-Final Week Sports Dept. Leads Pack By Five Games The NEWS weekly collegiate grid poll enters the semi-final week of the 1949 season, with what appears to be only a two-department race for first place. Sports Department is in the top spot, holding a five-game edge over the Advertising Department. Fifteen games back of Sports is the Composing room, too far back to be conceded more than an outside chance. Advertising has rallied in the past four weeks, picking up four games during that period. However, the Admen will have to do much better in the last two weeks in order to take over the lead. This week the experts disagree on, 14 of the 25 games chosen. Sports and Advertising are in agreement on all but five games. Victories for the Admen in those five games could throw the race into a tie going into the final week. W. L. Pet.

Kitty Kallen T EW YORK'—This is a funny town—funny peculiar, not funny ha-ha. I am thinking I along these philosophical lines today because I was trying to put down on paper all the really nice couples I know in town, the way when you were a kid you made lists of the 10 best third basemen or your 10 favorite movie actresses. It could be that I don't move in the right cir| cles, but anyway, it turned out that I didn't wear my pencil right down to the nub making the list. I hardly dulled the point. I don't know why it is, but in this funny, | peculiar town, there are a lot of charming women I and a lot of honest and nice guys with whom you would be happy to sit down and play a little poker —but they never come together, in package deals. There do not seem to be too many married pairs about whom you think fondly, once in a while, and say to yourself what a shame it would be if they ever split up. Although, as I said, I might not know the right people. When you start scratching around in show business and the demented and kaleidoscopic world of Broadway, one of the nicest • couples in t,own consist of a pert and pretty singer named Kitty Kallen and an amiable and good-looking oaf of. a press agent named Budd Granoff, the chorus girls' father confessor. They were right near the top of my list when I began setting down nice couples and it wasn't too long.after I put them down that I said, ah, the devil with it, and I went back to thinking of Kitty and Budd. RIGHT NOW, KITTY IS ONE of the handsomest women in the gray world of night club singers; she goes on a couple of times nightly in the elegant red and gray room that is the St. Regis hotel's Maisonette, and even if you didn't listen to her material, which is excellent and professionally presented, -you would do all right just to sit and watch. But it's an odd thing about pretty Kitty Kallen, as she used to be billed. She's one of those girls who was on the ugly-duckling tide when she was a child. When Kitty was nine years old, she lived in the southside sluvns of Philadelphia and weighed 42 pounds. She was about as big as a minute and had eyes the size of saucers, and her six brothers and sisters affectionately called her "Monkey." You don't think affectionate little names like that hit sensitive kids right between the eyes? Listen to Kitty: "Each time I heard it. something cut me inside." At nine years of age, Kitty Kallen had no way of knowing that the strange forces of nature are such that generally it is the plain little girl who grows up to be the striking beauty and the most beautiful child who matures into a. caricature of her childhood. So she put a clothespin on her pug nose when she went to bed ir.d she sat in school every day with a finger poked into her flat UHle cheek, trying to make a dimple. No little boy fell out of his 4<!at at her beauty and so she set out to make the world aware of her in other ways; she set a record for a kids' 50-yard dash (that still stands) and she became a fine tomboy. "3 had to have somebody's respect," Kitty says. ''I'd fight any kid in the block at the drop of a hat. It was hunger for a little admiration. When kids show off, they.have a reason." .* * *• * WELL, SHE GREW DP TO BECOME A SINGER with Jack Teagarden's band and later she left the Big Gate and made records and radio appearances with Alec Templeton and Danny Kaye and she even starred in the Broadway show Fimcm's Rainbow. They booked her into the Copacabana one .spring and it was worth tlie minimum charge to sit around and watch Budd Granoff, who does publicity for the Copa, stand in the back and watch her sing. If you worked things right, you nailed him right after her turn and you got him upstairs in the lounge and played him some gin rummy at precisely that point, because he was off in'cloudland and wouldn't have any idea when he had gin. Kitty and Budd got married, just like in the movies, and my guess would be that Budd tells her with monotonous regularity how lovely she il—but I don't think she was really sure of her ground as a handsome woman until the other day when she was haying her photograph taken for the cover of a. magazine, by a cameraman who has snapped-them all, from Garbo down. "Misa Kallen," hi said, shaking his head, "you certainly are a beautiful woman." At that point, Kitty Kallen, who long since had. discarded the clothespin on her pug nose and the dimple in her gaunt cheek, almost cried. However, she got a good grip on herself and went home and told the whole thing to Buddy and it probably is six, two and even that the champagne flowed that night. Well, as I say, there aren't too many nice couples In this town, but there are a few. This was juat a little piece about one of them* 14 Major League Clubs Select 20 Players In Annual Draft Boston Braves, Detroit Make No Selections (By United Press> Major Legaue representatives make quick work of the ibaseball player draft held yesterday at Cincinnati. It took 14 of the 16 Major League clubs less than 15 minutes to select 20 minor league players from iirane 5,000 on the eligible list. The Boston Braves and Detroit failed to select a player. Last year, 21 players were drafted, but less than half of them stuck in the majors. Additional drafts may be made, by telegraph to Commissioner A. B. Chandler before tonight at midnight. There were a few former major leaguers sprinkled among tijose drafted. One was former Chicago cuib right-hander, Hank Wyse. The Philadelphia A's drafted Wyse from iShreveport along: with outfielder Benny Guintini of Dallas, and, pitcher Ed Hrabczak of Stamford. Washington also drafted three players, Steve Nagy, a pitcher from Seattle. 'The St. Louis 'Browns drafted Kansas City innelder Tom Upton and fjtcher Sid Schacht of Louisville. Catcher Joe Erautt of Baltimore gets, a chance with the Chicago White Sox. Cleveland drafted pitcher Lee Thomas of Portland. The Boston Red Sox picked pitcher George Copeland of Rochester and the New York Yankees drafted pitcher' Hugh Radcliffe of Toronto. Only one National League club selected more than one player. Cincinnati drafted catcher Ev Johnson of Los Angeles and pitcher Rudy Minarcin of Toronto. Chicago drafted Montreal pitcher John Klilplpstein. Pittsburgh will try shortstop George Strickland of Birmingham. New York drafted catcher Sam Calderone of St. Paul Philadelphia selected former major Leaguer pitcher Milo Candini of Oakland. Outfielder Harold Stamey of Utica goes to St. Louis and Brooklyn drafted pitcher Mai Mallette of Sacramento. Before the draft was held, the playing rules committee announced a few changes. One is if a team substitutes two of more players at one time, the manager roast immediately notify the umpire in chief where they'll bat. It the manager fails to do this, the chief umpire can designate the batting positions of the sutos. The committee also clearly defined where the "strike zone" is,. The old definition ruled the strike zone was over the plate, no higher than the shoulders and no lower than the knees. The new version is a ball over the plate between the batter's arm pits and the top of his kneed. Kentucky, Indiana Coaches In Dispute Over Court Star Bloomington, Ind., Nov. 18—(UP) The collegiate basketball season hasn't even started, yet two coaches already are feuding . Adolph Rupp of Kentucky and Branch McCracken of Indiana are fighting over Cliff Hagan. a high school istar from Owensboro, Ky. Seems Hagan has accepted an athletic scholarship from Kentucky. Rupp accuses McCracken of trying to coax Hagan to Indiana. McCracken denies it. The Indiana coach docs admit that Hagan, still in high school, has visited the Indiana camlpois for one fooibtall game and' will be the Iguest of an Indiana Alumnus for another game this Saturday. But McCracken says 'he 'isn't trying to steal the high school star. "I'm going to treat the boy all right if he comes up here to visit," says McCracken. "I haven't hidden from any good ball players yet." Rupp admits that stealing a player doesn't violate any rules. But the Kentucky baron has this to say: "It's unethical, and you know how the Big Ten feels about ethics." Girls' Pin League Results Listed Results in the U. S. Rubber Co.
