Korndorff, of the Federal Shipbuiling Company, about the Mead commillee's investigation of the cost of the ceremonies with which cargo vessels, such as Liberties and Victories, and men of war, such as destroyers and cruisers, were launched during the war. I doubt that much can be made of this and tend, to suspect that it is a diversion intended to direct attention to a mock scuffle at the far end of the car while the fellow who has just lifled Ihc lealher out of the victim flask pocket slides out the door and up the subway | stairs., These ceremonies are a Iradition of the nip-building trade and both Kaiser and Korndorff say not only that their companies paid the expenses out of profit but that the parties became more and more bleak until, when production was really rolling, they were just litlle nip-ups and a nuisance, at that The aulomobile and kindred in- duslries weren't called on lo drape bunting over a pine scaffold and take time out for speeches and chicken saiad every time a jeep or a tanK came on' the line but the ship-builder were sluck with an old custom which still was honored by the Maritime Commission and the navy for purposes of lhat ex Porkers Start Grid Practice Today Fayctteville, Sept. 2—(IP)— Football practice got under way at the University of Arkansas today with Head Coach John (Barnie) Barnhill wishing that hot weather would return. "We won't get as much done, perhaps, if it gets hot again," Barnie commented, "but the boys could get into shape better." The Razorback mentor also pointed out that it would be "pretty warm' 'in Forl Worth early next month when his charges meet their first Southwest Conference foe, Texas Christian University. "I'd just as soon they'd be used to it hot by then," he added. Nearly 100 candidates were .expected to participate in the two workouts today, but Barnhill plans to cut his "A" squad to 55 men as soon as possible. Players relegated to the "B" squad will work under Assistant Coach Clyde Van Sickle. Assisting "Barnie" with the varsity are assistants George Cole, Deke Bracket and Hobart Hooser. End Coach Bill Barnes, who underwent an emergency appendectomy last week ,is not expected to appear on the practice iield until next week. pensive phantom called Old Henry says the "morale." Maritime Commission selected some of the sponsors, who invariably are ladies, and that his company naturally was expected to pay their freight from home to home, usually double, because each lady sponsor was allowed to pick a matron of honor to travel with her, and put them up at the best available hotel quarters.

I am not faulling him like a dislrict atlorney. He just isn't exact .

But you Iry il once and you will agree that it is a feat lo get Iwo conseculive words on any subjecl, or even one, oul of Henry Kaiser. Henry louchcd on the sallow social reputation o£ his launching parlies which I got wind of in San Francisco where kind friends told me to duck Ihcm as they were generally all choir singing by Ihc lappy workers and inspirational speeches while I knew all about he union rackets and the angry disconlcnt of Ihc good old common man behind his happy, shining :acc. So now I guess he understands why I couldn't make it over Iherc Ihc lime he asked me al Ihc peace conference. He got a fee of $30,000 each on liberties plus bonus for speed and- economics in cost and his atlitude is lhat if he shot a few nickels of his own company's money for silver trays and orchids lhal is his affair so please mind your own business if you would be so kind.

Sept. 2 — (!?)— Three Arkansans and a Missourian battled today in the Oil Belt Golf tournament's semi-finals, which the gallery believed might decide the championship.

The sudden slump, of one of the game's greal .pitchers, has been all but obscured by the healed National League race where the Cardinals hold a skimpy one-and-a-half game lead. Bul Bullel Bobby's once awesome record of 20 victorlon and six defeats, as of Aug. 2 now stands at 22 victories and 11 dc- feals, with less than a month left. All through hot July, Feller's burning fasl ball — clocked al 93.C miles per hour — appeared likely to bring him his two coveted goals, as he won seven out of eight games.
