Fourteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Today's Sport Parade NEW YORK, CUP)—The memory of a sad day six years ago paid off for Mickey Mantle today in a merciful memorial to his father. Mickey'still thinks of that day in 1951 when, in the second game of the World Series, he went flying across the outfield grass in pursuit of a fly ball. His spikes caught in a drain grating and Mantle went down as if shot, his knee twisted and his embryo future in doubt. That night, the Mick was joined in his Lenox Hill Hospital room by his father, a victim of Hodgkins disease. Watched Scries Together Together they saw the final games of the series on television from that hospital room. And young Mickey was able to make it back. His father didn't. Two months later the elder Mantle died of the dread disease and Mickey, remembering those days when they lay suffering lo- tte's fund. The honorary commit- .26 includes Ford Frick, Ted wil- Ham, Willie Mays—who hit that .ly ball the day Mickey twisted his knee—Yogi Berra, Ted Kluszewski, PeeWee Reese, Ed Mat- lews, Ernie Banks, Eddie Yost, George Kell, Stan Musial, Robin Roberts, Bob Friend, Billy Pierce, Harvey Kuenn, Billy Martin and Herb Score. "I want to thank everybody," Mickey said quietly. "I'm glad to be able to establish this memorial to my dad. He did everything in the world for me. This is little enough to do in his memory.," It was his finest performance, regardless of whether. he breaks every record in the baseball books.

Last spring he was jolted into action. Mickey received a letter advising him that St. Vincent's Hospital, which had been conducting research against Hodgkins disease, was about to give up its work because its funds were exhausted. His determination hardened when he visited a hospital and saw children afflicted with th« disease. The Creeks swatted ten hits in the opener with Wallace getting a homer and double to lead the way. In the second game Ben Sands crashed out three hits to lead Burnettsville's victory drive although Anderson and Wallace hit successive home runs for the Creeks in the seventh inning rally that fell short.

GOOD GETS NO-HITTER Babe Herman Recalls Zany 'Triple Play GLBM>ALE, Calif. (HP) — Babe Herman, once the joy of Flatbush with his zany antics as an outfielder in the days when Brooklyn was known as "the i Dodgers," today celebrated 54th birthday busy at the game ihat has been his life for 36 years. A TWISTER CAME TO CALL Herman has the dignified title of supervisor of personnel for the 11 western states for the Philadelphia Phillies. But he says he is just "chief western cout" for the club and that keeps him plenty busy, "I'm doing what I like and hope to keep on doing it for a time," Herman said when caught for a few moments at his home here in Glendale, where he ranks; with Casey Stengel as the town's most illustrious citizens. "Maybe the players don't catch balls on their heads like I did once," Herman said with a twinkle in his eyes, "but I gather from, the rhubarbs and the fights that things haven't changed much. "I got a kick about all the fuss raised over that fight between the White Sox and the Yankees. Remember me o[ the old days. We used to have one about once a month when I was with the Cubs." Herman shrugged off the brawl as merely evidence of the tension Wednesday Evening, June 26, I9ST. claimed to have "triple coverage" of the committee's activities. He said Hoffa mentioned "a fellow" in the office of Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy (R-Wis.), committee member who since lias died. Cheasly added "I didn't get the name."

"I won't make any public statement on it at present," the Arkansas Democrat told the United Press. John Cye Chesty, the government's star witness in U'le bribery trial of Hoffa, testified Tuesday the TeamsUr official pro- "boners" instead of his performances. To this day Herman still holds five of the records for the Dodgers even ago Wilbert Robinson was the Dodger •manager.

And Herman likes to recall his hitting three homers in one game for the Cubs and his getting nine consecutive hits for Brooklyn before Kiki Cuyler robbed him of a chance of equalling the major league mark of 10 by reaching into the stands for what appeared to be a home run ball. Catching a baseball on his head ranks with die celebrated episode on a triple play after hitting a triple because there were three men on third. That .was when the late Uncle TIMEIY ARTICIES!
