TAGE 4—NATJGATCCK TfEVfS (CONN.), FKIDAY, DEC. SO, 1949 Highlanders To Make Fourth Local Appearance Monday New York Violeis Favored Over Local Quintet Manager Milt Weissman's Naugatuck Highlanders make their fourth appearance of the year on the TMCA court Monday night when they play host to the powerful New York Violets- The game is slated for 9 o'clock, to be preceded by a preliminary between the Highlander B squad and the Seymour Top Hatters In the three previous tilts on the Y surface, the Highlanders were the underdogs and they are listed on the short end of the wagering again for Monday's encounter. In the otter three games, the locale came through with impressive upset wins, knocking off the Ansonia Norwoods, the Torrington Triangles and the New Haven Roesslers- Another upset could be in the making: Monday night. The Violets, a team which plays preliminary games for the New York Knickerbockers of the National Pro League, are used to a. much larger playing surface than the YMCA band-box, and they may not be able to cope with the small court. Starting at forwards for the Highlanders will be Bob Markovic and Vin Drake, with Red Ryan at center and the HeaJy twins, Vin and Joe, at guards. The Healys, Markovic and Ryan were brought utF, so to speak, on the Y court, and know its every corner. Drake learned his basketball on the small, Ansonia High court and turns in a remarkable performance in close confines. The New Yorkers could find they have bitten off more than they can. chew in tackling the locals. Playing with the Violets, who have won 184 out of their past 207 games, including nine out of 10 this year, will be a host of former college stars, including Murry Albert, LJU; Dick Under, CCNY; Johnny Scanlon, St John's Bobby Seigel, of last year's Evander Childs High champions, and sev- eraj other former college and high school stars from, the Metropolitan area- The Highlanders go into the tilt with a record of eight wins and three losses, including six wins in a row. and will be out to make it number nine for tr.e season.

REVIEW OF THE YEAR - - By Alan Mavei July . reo w/ris W/MBI-EOON <3irisi.es WAUY MOSES, Of THEA<S, flis ZOOOM fiir/ Improving Garnet Quintet Seeks Upset Over Ansonia Kiner Asks Pirates For "Substantial Pay Increase" For 1950 (By United Press) Two home run hitting outfielders are in the sports news tonight, one of them a rising star, the other in the twi-light of a great career. They are Ralph Kiner, tha current king of Home-Run Land, and Charlie Keller, the former New York Yankee threat who has signed with Detroit as an "insurance outfielder." Kiner confirms what most fans have been saying since the end of last season—he has asked Pittsburgh for what he calls a "substantial pay increase" for the 1950 season. Kiner won't say just how much of a salary boost he is asking over his reported pay-check of $40,000.- Pittsburgh General Manager Roy Hamey is more talkative. "If you guess between $50,000 and $60,000," hints Hamey. "you certainly won't miss far. The boy certainly is entitled to a raise. He's the best drawing card in our league," adds Roy. "You can say for me that we won't have any trouble getting together." The signing of Keller by Detroit comes as pleasant news to most fans. Keller was one of the most popular players in baseball when he rounded out the feared Yankee outfield with Joe DiMaggio and Tommy Henrich. .The Tigers say Keler will fill the gap left when outfielder Dick Wakefield was traded to the Yankees last week. The Yankees released the 33-year-old Keller recently. Keller, who joined the Yankees in 1937, has been sidelined most of the last two seasons with a severe back injury.

The tilt will be preceded by a (preliminary between the junior varsities at 7:30 o'clock. The main go is slated for 8:45. By the records, Anlsonia will be favored to make it five straight losses for the Garnet and Grey combine, but, as always when these two teams meet in any sport past records go out the "window. The Lavender crew are the bitterest rivals of the Greyhounds, who will be shooting not only to -break th» losing; streak, but a mastery Ansonia has held over them for the past two years. The Lavender is sparked by Tommy Blackwood, elongated center who measures 6' 4" from head to toe.

MARCH OF EVENTS State Department Irked By Jordan Accusations Officials Not Consulted Over Uranium Shipments INTERIOR PAINTS GALLAGHER'S HARDWARE 178 MAPLE STREET Free Delivery Telephone !>(M4 Special to Central Press TFTASHINGTON — State department officials do not often tangle »V with Congress. Usually they let the most blatant misstatements about the department go unnoticed, preferring not to. argue with the legislators. However, the latest accusations by former Maj. G. Racey Jordan have irked many officials. Jordan attempted to place the blame for shipments of uranium to Russia on the department when, in actual fact. State officials were never consulted in the matter. The one-time officer also failed to recognize that the Board of Bconomic Warfare. Lend-Lease and the Foreign Economic Administration were not placed under the State department until after the war. Only then did President Truman do what had been urged since early in the war and bring these agencies under the department's jurisdiction. Former Secretary of State Cordell Hull refused to tolerate this procedure when he was in office. He insisted that State should be purely a policy-making body. An additional cause of annoyance to the State department is the fact that shipments of uranium and heavy water referred to by Jordan were reported to the House un-American activities committee more than a year ago. No public mention of the fact was made at that time. Washington • NO RETREAT—Contrary to published reports. Cyrus S. Ching has no present plans to retire from government service. The 73-year-old Mediation Service director is more active an>! vigorous than many a younger man in Washington's official circles and he's going to stay on the job for some time to come. Rumors of Ching's rotirement probably stemmed from the rigorous ordeal he has gone through in the past six months with a national steel strike, a walkout of coal miners and a threatened east coast maritime strike all at once. Ching weathered the storm in good shape but plans to slip away during the holidays for a rest. His batting average is hiph. He promoted settlement of the steel strike, averted the maritime crisis and still is working behind the scenes on the coal case The one-time industrialist and War Labor board member, who tackled the mediation assignment when most men are in retirement, is credited with doing one of the best jobs in the capital. He works closely with Presidential Assistant John R. Steelman and g-ets full backing from the White House in al! his efforts. * * * * • NO PANACEA—The widespread public attention Driven to experiments with two new "wonder drugs" in the treatment'of arthritis has caused several complications. The drugs are cortisone and ACTH. Both are in extrorr.cly limited supply, and largely because of this fact are very costly. These two . factors make it absolutely impossible at the present time to administer the drugs to all of the two or three million rheumatoid arthritis sufferers. Under these conditions, reports have bobbed un of a "black market" in one of the drugs in the Philadelphia area. Also information has been reported that compounds are being used with such small traces of cortisone as to be inef- Reported fcctivc, according to research specialists. These men point out that any cure for the <lis-' 'Black ease is a long way off. Experiments at the Michael Market" Reese hospital in Chicago have shown that the arthritis comes back after administration of the driifr is stopped.
