J 'Tnoi^r Tucker HELLO,' WHO? YES-THIS* IS CURLY KAYOE SPEAKING.' YES...I'LL BS RIGHT OVER/.' NEW YORK, June 2 KB— A little fraternal advice seems to be keeping brothers off the same big league team. It could "be that all the "kid" brothers are being advised against signing with the same team by their older and more experienced brethren. In any' case, the latest baseball brother act to split up is the Throneberrys. Outfielder Faye, the older member of the'family, signed with the Red Sox, but last Thursday, his 19-year-old brother, Marvin, cast his lot with the Yankees. Marvin, a first baseman, received an estimated $50,000 bonus for goiug with the Yankees which is considerably more than Boston paid to lure Faye into their official family. The infielding Kells also went their separate ways, kid brother Everett signing with the Athletics pect, preferred to join the Brooklyn organization. Pitcher Lee Grissom achieved a modest measure of fame with Cincinnati more than 10 years ago but Lee's ^younger brother, Marv, showed'no great desire to join the Reds. Consequently, he is hurling for the Chicago White Sox today. Bill Dickey, one-time catching great: with the Yankees, had a kid brother, George, who \yas a fair receiver, but he went his separate way, also, winding up with the White Sox. The DiMaggio clan followed the same pattern, Joe coming up with the Yankees, Dora with the Red Sox and Vince with the Braves. To be sure, there are some exceptions 1'ke the Warners, Deans and Coopeis, three brother combinations who toiled with the same teams, but generally the boys like to split up. Even father-and-son combines and semi-pro circles. But Hal signed with the Washington organization in which he still plays. About 90 per cent of the business buildings in Seoul, Korea, were destroyed in the four times the city has changed hands since June, 1950. despite the fact; that big brother rarely work for the same employ- George was with Detroit.
