don smith BALTIMORE'S quick victory over the Dodgers in the World Series stunned all of the big sports writers who almost to a man picked, Los Angeles to repeat as World Champions of the sport - however, there were a lot of loyal Baltimore ( and American League) fans who were certain the club that walked away with the pennant in that loop would also take the big set. From our chair 1,000 to 2,000 miles away from the action, the outstanding happenings during the four games included Moe Drabowsky's brilliant relief pitching for the Orioles in the opening game, six Los Angeles errors, including three by Willie Davis in one inning in the second contest, the pitching of Wally Bunker and home run by Paul Blair in the cozy third and hurling of Dave McNally and home run by Frank Robinson ( how did he ever get out of the National League?) in the clincher Sunday, Oct. 9. And the catch by Willie Davis (the same guy who proved to be the goat in game two) in the finale as he hauled in Boog Powell's long belt to center field has to be one of the best plays in the history of the Series. And how about that Baltimore defense especially Brooks Robinson and Luis Aparicio on the left side of the infield? Just great!, And best photo (in a newspaper) had to be the one in dailies the day after the Orioles completed the . sweep showing Brooks Robinson flying across the turf to greet Andy Etchebarren and McNally as the game ended. As long as the Twins couldn't get the job done in 1965 - the Oriole Series win was fine consolation for the American League. ' HERE'S an observation on fall we picked up here the other day "God works things out pretty well. He sends the wind which blows the dead leaves off the trees. I wish he'd send a breeze from the south so mine would go over to my neighbor's lawn." (We know God is looking after neighbors, too). FOR. those who wljljportunate enough to watch "The Kennedy Wit" on TV a couple of weeks ago, no matter what their political thinking, the ; program proved to be one of the best in a long time. Basically, it gave an inside look into the gaiety, wit and warmth of the late president through the use of films that had not been seen by most persons previously. Some of the film was clipped from press conferences, which many of us did see when he was in office and they were very interesting, again. Perhaps one of the best stories -told by Jack Paar, who produced and hosted the show, concerned President Kennedy's favorite music, to which JFK replied, " 'Hail to The Chief has a nice ring to it." HEARD a radio announcement recently that didn't come out of the announcer's mouth as expected. Jte reported that a tune just played was from the musi- cal "Roar of the Greasepaint and Smell of the Crowd.'* -?WHAT shape would they make chairs if our knees bent the other way? - ?WE know all of us take too many things for granted. For instance, there are various types of business (and some professions) that at times are quite demanding. The first pair we think of are firms that own ambulances and doctors who are general practitioners. Right off the bat, of course, you will say "But I've never needed the services of an ambulance - or a doctor after hours." Okay, but what happens when you do need such service. We're not making 1 a pitch here for ambulances and doctors (even though it might sound like itX but we think in many cases, people expect quite a lot. Sure, you'll say - "Look at how rich they get." We think both are worth everything they charge for their services. And, anyone running an ambulance service will tell you they don't get rich at it - in fact many have folded up all over the U.S. in recent years - so they weren't getting wealthy. In fact, one of the biggest problems ambulance service operators have is collecting - usually from persons sustaining injuries in an acci- 1 dent, and it is especially tough if that person is not from your area. They've got all sorts of excuses, like "I didn't call the ambulance." Of course, at the time he couldn't, he was lying unconscious, so the fee isn't paid because someone else cal- Algofte, (Itt.) Upper Dm Molnts TUESDAY, OCT. 18, 1966 led for help. To make a long story short - the ambulance and doctoring business aren't all they're cracked up to be, even for the ones who do manage to make money at it. Just a couple of services we accept too casually. - ?HAVE you had a lettuce "smoke" yet? That's what the company that makes them wants their product called, instead of cigarette. At any rate, the Iowa Tax Commission is all up in the air about introduction of the smokes, because it can't nick the manufacturer for eight cents tax on each package. The reason they can't - there's no tobacco used in them. According to reports, the new smokes taste much like tobacco cigarettes, and they look the same - but are 100 percent nicotine free. And they don't have to bear the familiar "Caution: cigarette smoking may be hazardous to your health" bit that othersido. TaxCommis- sion attorneys ruled the product tax free. The smokes are not subject to the state laws that establish a minimum price, either, but this might not be a problem, as the suggested retail is 59 cents, compared with 35 cents for popular tobacco, - ?ERIC Sevareid says - "The French do not go to priests, doctors or psychiatrists to talk over their problems. They sit over a cup of coffee or glass of wine and talk to each other."
