Fair Enough By Weitbrook Pegler Copyright, 1946 Bv Kino Feature* Syndicate. New York, Dec. 12 — With considerable surprise I saw by Miss Hedda Hopper's Hollywood column one recent day that Leo Durocher, the manager of the Brooklyn ball club, again was a house-guest in California of his friend, George Raft, the moving picture actor- gangster and member in good standing of the underworld of Hollywood and Broadway. I was surprised because only a few days before I learned on excellent authority that when Durocher conferred with Branch Rickey, the general manager of the Brooklyn baseball firm, in Columbus, O., preliminary to Durocher's retention as the team manager for 1947, he promised Mr. Rickey that he would divorce himself from his old asso- Betting on Racing Hits Al!-Time Peak By RAY AYRES SPORTS ROUNDUP tfl New York, Dec. 12 — (fP) —A couple of kids named Charley Fusari and Chuck Taylor are going to have a fight at Madison Square Gar New York, Dec. 12 — (UP) —-Iden tomorrow night . . .

Two days after Miss Hopper re- porte'd that Durocher again was a guest of Raft in a household much frequented by gangsters, Rickey and Durocher rrie,^ .the- baseball writers in one of those formal press conferences iri Brooklyn to announce that Durocher nad signed his 1947 contract. The impression was given that Rickey had exacted no promises or assurances. That version is incorrect, for the fact is that Rickey discussed little else in the Columbus meeting, and that Durocher, as a cond tion prior to the actual negotiations as to his salary and other terms, promised to keep out of questionable company. Rickey said Durocher was entirely honest in baseball matters and W9uld not knowingly give information to gangsters on which they might arrange betting coups, but "dumb as hell when it comes to figuring the consequences of an association." "He has lined up with us 100 per cent," Mr. Rickey said, meaning that Durocher had promised to avoid the appearances of evil. As an old baseball man, Mr. Rickey knows many angles, known also io the criminal underworld, by which a manager who is "dumb as hell" that way could give underworld companions a strong betting advantage through advance information without any guilty intent. Although Rickey says Raft has j been barred from the Dodgers' or Bums' dressing-rooms and from Ebbets Field, th.-il does not mean, of course, that Raft is socially undesirable everywhere else in baseball. At one of the Boston games of the late world series he accompanied Larry MacPhail, the business executive of the New York Yankees, and Joe DiMaggio. The publicity of the press recently extended Raft in generous measure has elicited amusing discussion concerning his cherished friend and bodyguard known as Killer Gray, whose actual name is Max Greenberg the office of bodyguard to a tough-guy is an interesting institution in itself, the more so inasmuch as the police records contain no data on any homicides by Killer Gray nor even an arrest 'lor so amiable an offense as wife-beating.

Fulbright, former Oxford scholar and university president, xirst advanced his proposal the day after the November 5 election 5n which the Republicans swept to control of Congress. Mr. Truman brushed aside any comment, but Ihe 'White House made it clear the president had :\o intention of quilling. "My suggeslion is nol a reflection on anyone's integrity, patriotism, or anything else," ihe senator told_a reporter loday. "II would merely'"'correct an obvious defect in our present syslem which has resulted when the presidenl is a member of one parly and Ihe majority of Congress another." As for Mr. Truman's role in the coal crisis, Fulbright declared: lo put off purchase of clolhing and piece goods as long as possible. When supplies are more plentiful | prices will be more salisfaclory. By refusing lo buy poor quality, high- priced merchandise, consumers can speed up return of normal quality lo store shelves, she stalca. The production of medium-priced goods has steadily declined since 1942. The supply of better quality combed collon goods increased slightly in 1!MG, but popular fabrics such as bed sheeting, outing flannel, better grades of lawn, organdy oxford and sateen are still scarce. Production of rayon fabrics has increased ureally since Ihe end of Ihe war. Much of Ihc rayon has been mixed with other fibers to make spun rayon, drapery and up- holslery fabrics. Woolen iind worsted goods production has been at lather high levels. In the ready lo wear line, men's suils, overalls and trousers are more plentiful, but slill below prewar levels, she points out. Shortages of experienced workers as well as lack of certain lypes of cloth for pockets and linings have slowed down production in Ihis field. Women's woolen dresses and suits are plentiful, but rayon and will continue to be smaller than demand. CARNIVAL By Dick Turner I!«JT mr h t h.tum s,, j ii c li*. WoilJ njliii itmuj SIDE GLANCES By.

Chandlei s a machine politician from a poli ical environment in Louisville that includes the professional underworld types that Fiorello La Guardia used to call tin-horns and Dunks. For years Landis kept at ,he clubowners to hound known professionals out of ihe parks. Players and managers simply were not allowed to associate with 'them.

However, the Arkansas senator continued unless the president retires in favor of a Republican, these things are in prospect: 1. There will be <io cooperation between thc Republican Congress and the Democratic administration, and the next two years will be spent in "squabbling, investigations 'and attempts to show the Demo; cratic party is no good.'

My uuthoiity on such matters, George Sokolsky, lulls me that in the sly Jewish nurrior "kilah" means something even more which, in a family newspaper, must be approached only with great delicncy. '•You might say," Mr. Sokolsky said, "that it is a term :iever selected by a man as a boast but invariably applied by others and without ccrnplmentary intent. It means that a man nas hud a very sad misfortune. A very amusing derivation of the name 'Killer 1 i'or the bodyguard of a Hollywood tough guy. I am laughing 10 myself." If Miss Hopper was correctly informed in her report of the renewed association of Durocher with Raft, then Durocher is fellowship- ping in the off-season with a man whom his employer, patron, spiritual guardian and boss had decided to exclude in season i"or the good of the game.
