A few years ago Tony Lazzerl was in the middle of a hot fielding- streaJc and gelling a lot of play in the newspapers. ... In a tight spot in one game, the baU came to Gomez and Lefty, ignoring Tony's ^antic directions where to make the play, tassed the ball to Lazzerl. i. . . When the shortstop protested later, Gomez replied, 'T didn't know what to do with it, Tony, and I'd been reading all week that yot^'re the smartest fielder in the world so I tiiought I'd let you" : Evan.>rtion. 111..

The National Amateur' Athletic Union recently said any school that played Hamline is "professionalized" because two of its players, Howie Schultz and RoUie Seltz, are pro- fe.ssional baseball players. Wilson .•aid Hamline was not a member of the NCAA, and wa.s ineligible to play in its tourneys.

(AP)—Ac- ce);tance of two prominent sjwrts ilgures for .service does not neces- .s;;rily .set ii precedent which will be followed in reviewing other profes- .sional athletes. Put it may indicate which way aimy doctors will lean in examining these men for induction. War department sources made that comment today when asked about Aldo "Buff" Donelli, football coach, and Willie Pep, fighter, who have passed physical examinations within the last few days. Donelli, who will be 38 years old In July, is coach of the Cleveland Rams cf the National Professional Poot- liall league. He will be taken into the navy within two weeks. Pep, world featherweight title (Claimant, has an honorable medical discharge from the navy. The army has accepted him for general service, which can mean combat duty. Donelli and Pep are the first big- name athletic figures to be accepted since War Mobilization Director Byrnes called for a re-exanalnation of professionals.

Flannigan pitched for the Baltimore Orioles and during a recent German counterattack he proved he could toss lead too. Enemy troops forced him to pull back into a house from the firing line he had voluntarily formed to cover a gap in the Yank sector. When two Nazis crawled to within 15 yards and tossed grenades, the former moimdsman stepped out, picked up the grenades and threw thorn back, killing both Germans and ducked back into the house before the gi-enades burst. Flannigan exposed himself again to draw fire from a German ma- chinetrun, enabling a buddy to locate the Nazi and kill him with a rifle .shot.

Associated Press correspondent Fred Hampson, accompanying these troops, said only a few Japanese were being encountered. He wrote that the main body of the Japanese garrison of northwestern Luzon was attempting to make its way southward through foothills of the 2^m- bales mountains. Keep Up Air Pressure Continuing air blows against Japan 's vital commtmicatldns on Luzon aided the steady ground pressure. Medium bombers and attack planes wiped out 61 Japanese planes on the ground at Clark Field and on 'dromes in • Cagayan valley to the north of the battle zone. Formosa was raided again at night by patrol bombers which harassed okayam airdrome on the island's southwest coast, near the port of Talcao.

Flora looked at the forecast of more cloudy, muggy weather for Kansas today and .summed things up neatly: "All you can say for this weather is that it's lousy." Rain fell over the entire state yesterday. Some started as snow but turned to rain during the day as temperatures warmed slightly. Topeka had .17 of an hich, Coffeyville .21, Wamego J4, Concordia .02. Wichita .31, Dodge City .06, Kansas City .09 and St. Joseph, Mo., .10. Traces were recorded at Goodland and Philllpsburg. Fog and clouds covered the whole state today and more genei-al but light rains were predicted. Snow was falling this morning at D<}dge City but Flora said it would probably turn to rain before the day was over. Coffeyville and Philllpsburg were the warmest reported state points yesterday with highs of 42. Goodland was low overnight at 17. Temperatures today and tomorrow were expected to range from near 40 in central and southern portions to from 32 to 35 in northwestern parts. Flora reminded that Jan. 16 was the halfway ma'rk in winter. "If you Imow how much coal you've burned to this date," he said, "you can figure that's just half of it." This Is a Centennial Baseball Anniversary New York, Jan. 18. CAP)—In the midst of wartime uncertainty over baseball, the national pastime's leaders have overlooked an historical, sports event that .should receive some formal recognition—the 100th anniversary of baseball's first or- -nnized team. Baseball is generally accepted as having been devised by Abner Doubledav in 1839, but it was not •iitil 1R45 that the Knickerbocker club, the first organized team, appeared. It Wius on Sept. 23. 1845, that Alexander J. Cartwricht. an enthu- •siastic devotee of baseball, eathered together some young, wealthy New York bankers and lawyers and formed the Knickerbocker. D. W. Curry was chosen president. W. R. 'Wheaton, vice-president, and W. H. Tucker, secretary-treasurer. Strictly an amateur organization, the Knickerbackers lasted 30 years until 1876, the vear in which the oresent National league of professional baseball clubs was formed. Blues and Golds Split Even ^ The Blues and the Golds at the lola junior high school split this week's basketball games, the Gold "A's" and "C's" and the Blue "B's" and "D's" winning their particular contests. The Gold "A's" got away to an early start and le0 the' Blues 13 to 3 at the quitter and easily romped away with a 41 to 19 victory. The Blue "B's" also had complete mastery of their game and wound up with a score of 40 to 25. The first quarter of the "C" game was a real contest, closing with the score 7 to 6 in favor of the Golds. However, the Golds hit their stride in the remainder of the game and won 37 to 17. The Blues were able to score only 2 points in the last quarter of the game. The Blue "D's" smothered their opponents in the first half with a lead of 21 to 4, and finished the game with a score of 38 to 14.

But —and this statement was not explained—there is no combination of ^ powers in Europe in which "we need *J Italy as a partner." A Victory Not in Doubt "We need Italy no more than we need Spain because we have no designs which require support of that countr>'." Ch'orchill declared. "Military victory may be distant." said Churchill, "ft is certainly costly but it is no longer in doubt." In closing his two hour speech— y.hich was broken by time out for • lunch—Churchill brought the house to its feet cheering as he asserted: "We seek no territory, we covet no oil fields, we demand no bases for the forces of tlie riir or of the .sea.' "Good Conscience" •We do not set ourselves up in rivalry or bigness or might with any other community in tha world. We have given and we shall continue to give everything we have. We ask nothing in retiu-n except that consideration and respect which is our due and if that were denied us we shall still have a good conscience.
