President Elsenhower returns from a golfing vacation, in tune to throw out the first ball at Washington, where the Yankees will be the visitors. Casey Stengel's opening day lineup remains uncertain due to an embarrassment of riches while Washington instill trying out the former Red Sox and Yank youngsters. The v highly-regarded Red Sox open at home in Fenway Park with Frank Sullivan to face Baltimore's Orioles^ With Ted Williams in the lineup and such fine youngsters as Don Buddln and "Frank Malzone, the Sox could . be the Yanks' leading contenders.

In fact, I got more discouragement than encouragement, Nobody seemed to think I could pitch, and 1 went from Waycross to Petersburg. Va., and then to Raleigh, N. C,' Raleigh sold me to Lubbock, Tex, just about the time the Korean War broke out and I got drafted, "I played some ^service ball down at Camp Polk, La., but I didn't learn much because the manager of the .team was me. 1 do remember that I played against Mr. Glenn Thompson, who is now with .the Atlanta Crackers, while I was there. Gosh, how he could throw! " After I got out I won 21 games at Lubbock and Denver bought me; 1 won 16 games for Denver in '54 and Pittsburgh took me to spring trainnig, but I knew I wasn't going to stick. 'Nobody even knew I was there and I had a sore arm, too. I was just a guy getting room and board." v Even with this major development Atlanta continued in its ignorance of Charlie Garmon, who had left and returned each year 'with the ceremony of a traveling salesman. Charlie was abandoned by the Pirates when the American Assn. moved in on the Denver franchise. So he fell into the hands of the Yankees. "I just had a so-so record last year," he said. "I won five and lost four, but the last part of the season 1 started eight times. I pitched in the Mexican League last winter and I'm ashamed of my record down there. 1 didn't win but. three and lost seven, but I was working on some new things they'd been teaching me." . The other day they put Charlie in against the Red Sox with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth. ' He got the side out without a stir of opposition. The next day he worked the last inning alone and got three in a row. lie went against the, Sox a third time and held them to four hits in five innings. "It was windy/' he said, "and a few fly balls fell in there." The point is, a fellow who can get the Red Sox out can btcome pretty important, to the Yankees. · "Aw, gosh, I'm still on the Denver roster," Charli* Mid, '"and this don't mean much. To be honest with you, I never learned »s much about pitch ing. as ,;I have since I've been down hert. Nobody ever told me anything before. They're getting my feet straightened out and they've got me throwing overhand to left-handed batters Right, after I got here Mr. Freddy Fitzsimmons stood ovtr at first base and called off every pitch. I threw before I threw it. They sav he's good .at reading pitches. He could tell by something I -was doing "I figured if he was doing it then other people must be doing it, too, so it was time for me to do something about it. I've been working hard to do everything they told me." , So it must be hard for the fello\vs back in East Atlanta to believe that Charlie, Garmon is a Yankee. But it's the everlasting truth. even if -it's for only a spring. have much to learn as they face heir second campaign. These letterraen include Barry 0/niore. Eric Hamilton.

Junior varsity talent, as usual, may make or break the varsitv of 1956. Talent to fill front line and ·eserve jobs in the line and back 'ield must come from this source. Approximately eight boys who Dlayed well for the Jayvees last season' will be moving over to the varsity, and from this group may come some of the strongest bidders for varsity berths. J a y v e e s stepping into faster Council Busy With Budgeting (Hopewell Bureau) The week closed in Hopewell with members of the City Council and City Manager Levin D. James hard at work on the budget for the coming fiscal year. Xone would say how much increase there will be but. it is considered certain that the SI,832,032 required for the current fiscal year, will not be sufficient to meet next year's needs. Greater demands by the public school system and the necessity for building a sewage treatment plant, which probably will get under way before the coming"fiscal year ends, will mean more expenditures. Every effort js being made to hold do'wn expenses and to operate the city economically. So far in the present fiscal year the outlay for services by the city is 66.66 per cent at the end of 75 per cent of the year. This is pointed out as a healthy situation and one that will aid greatly in meeting next year's costs if the apparent surplus can be kept intact. f·· f/it *tniational new, TemTrol TOP BURNER "America's F/n«if Gas Rang*" ^ Jusf Fook af the Handy 'Personalized" Cooking Chart teptr 40' p*r Dtluxf' S«f the '* Top-Cooking Dial Get Perfect Foodi Cooked Automatically COOK with GAS t Cheaper . . . better ... faster The Petersburg Hopewell Gas Company "THE FRIENDLY PEOPLE" G O O D G A S S E R V I C E M A K E S W A R M F R I E N D S Thomas Enters (Continued From Page 18) well.

Hayes, who announced Thursda\ is active in union affairs and stated that he is a working man's candldatt but wants to see all segments of the city's population properly served by the Council. The field is the largest in sev era! years and political observers expect the vote, June-12, to be the largest polled here in -mam years. There is considerable interest in the campaign and as the filing deadline passed and the field became clear, there were no guesses as to what the outcome would be. It is expected that winners will gain their victories- bj- close margins. It is pointed ou that the large field not onlv wil split the vote considerably but tha those running are well qualified for the jobs they are seeking. Efforts to get out a big vote will be made by the candidates and their supporters. It is expected also that active-campaigns will be conducted by the candidates.

Anyway you looX at it, the Wave will have another young team, with material in a formative stage that will challenge the best efforts of King and his assistants. AF Academy (Continued From Page 3») One is the fact that all but one of last year's top football candidates are back. The other is the psychological jump the 1956 Falcons will have over their 1955 edition. "Why, last year's kids couldn't possibly be expected to play great football," said Shaw, with Whitlow nodding agreement. "They were fighting "the books constantly. Military life was a tough transition for them. And they're here to learn to be career officers la the Air Force -- aot primarily to play football. "On the 'way to some of the games, some of the kids had books propped up in front of them. They weren't thlnkinc about football. They couldn't." Shaw emphasized he was not criticizing Academy policy--"the accent on study is as it should be." But this year, he said, the Falcons have gained experience, poise and confidence. Shaw and Whitlow believe that, within two or three years, the Air Force Academy will outdraw its sister academies for football talent. One of the school's biggest current problems is that of a stadium. With big time football only two years away, the'Academy still is without a home stadium. Colorado Springs civic groups contend a stadium -- capacity anywhere from 25,000 to 50,000 -- *MM t» built there, at the Academy's permanent site. Denver wants th« stadium built in the Colorado capital, with a current population of about 500,000--more than 10 times that of Colorado Springs. "We're concerned -- greatly concerned -- over the fact we have no stadium, and apparently no definite plans for one," Whitlow said. "If we don't have one by 1958, we'll go to Kansas City, to Chicago and anywhere else we must in order to accommodate the crowds that want to see us play; , "Meantime, we'll be counting on the enthusiasm and interest of the people of Colorado to provide a stadium--somewhere, but soon." DIZZY PACE LOS ANGELES (NBA) -- Should Southern California win the\ National Collegiate Athletic Association track and field team title again, it will be the eighth straight and 20th in 27 attempts. UK* FAT HER-LI Kt SON Something's in the making here. Maybe it's a garden. Maybe it's nothing more than * ditch. But what really counts is that father and son are working together happily. Sonny may be more hindrance than help just now. But, says Dad patiently, "How ever will the boy learn if he doesn't do?" When you watch, with ebbing patience your child's fumbling efforts to imitate yours, do you ever think about your heavenly Father 1 ! patience with you when ydu "are in the wrong? ' He's right there, working alongside you too, wanting to show you how to carry on, ' and staying close by in case you get into trouble. If you keep in touch with Him through prayer and regular church attendance, you will learn from Him how to live, just as your child learns from you through talking and being with you.
