He really didn't expect to see a whole column in The Northside Recorder of San Antonio, ,Tex., devoted to it. Oran Manwarren, who lived in Freeport until about three years ago, just wanted "A little plug. Nothing -big. Something that might fill in between items." Sam Kindrick, the writer, suddenly found himself enthralled with the idea of this baseball game. Wrambllng Wrecks? "The Wrambling Wrecks?" he asked. Oran explained this group was made up of "guys who were hurt bad in World War II. Guys who are in bad shape because of old war injuries." After more questions, the Texas journalist found out that this group was chartered by the State of Texas shortly after the end of World War II. Only a few charter members remain. Each year for the,past 26 years they have been promoting a baseball game for the benefit of young men in South Texas. They Had A Point The more the writer thought the more he relented. "After all, those Wrambling Wrecks had a point. They weren't pumping money for themselves. They were doing it for others. And these guys had' certainly paid their dues. "We were up against the wall when those Jap planes started laying eggs on Pearl Harbor." Kindrick decided that the ball game more than deserved a mere mention. It was a fine thing, he agreed.* Young men from Texas high schools and junior colleges competed each year, and college scholarships were granted each year as result of the game. A 17-Inch Plug No one was more surprised than Manwarren when he picked up, the newspaper and saw more than 17 inches devoted to his little plug. The game will take place Aug. 5 and there will be "many in Texas who will be there supporting those Wrambling Wrecks. Now living in retirement, Oran and his wife, Dollie, find the Texas climate much kinder for Mr. Manwarren's severely banged-up legs from World War II injuries. In Freeport they were active members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Club on East Shawnee and of Trinity United Methodist Church. Mrs. Manwarren's, brother, William J. Schneiderman, lives at 1645 S.
