FRIDAY, JANUARY 6, 1950 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH r AOI Court Ruling DueonLevisen, Murder Cases SPRINGFIELD, 3m. « (» — The Illinois Supreme Court at It* January term opening Monday may rule on appeals of four persons seeking to escape death sentence^. In one case, two youthi have been sentenced to die In the electric chair for murdering a Jersey- vllle Insurance man In a |10 highway robbery last April. The you|hs are Carson Seger, 19, of Alton, and Curtis Chapman, 18. They pleaded guilty in Greene County Circuit Court. In the second case, Fred Varela, 26, and Alphonso Najera, 27, were convicted of murdering Albert Brady, 30-year-old Chicago cab driver, In April, 1948. The tribunal also may have a decision In the appeal of Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln Levisen, convicted of keeping their seven - year - old daughter out of Greenfield grade school. State law requires school attendance by able-bodied children. The Levisens are members of the Seventh Day Adventlst Church. One of the church's principles Is that parents should be teachers of their children. The court has set arguments next week in a case challenging the Illinois Liquor Control Commission's power to deny license renewals to tavern owners convicted on gambling charges. The Cook County Superior Court has held that the commission must renew state licenses for liquor dealers who obtained local licenses. Attorney General Elliptt, who is appealing the decision, said the case will determine If the •tate commission is "just a rubber •tamp" for local liquor' commissions. Arguments also will be heard next week on validity of a new itate law designed to slow down the divorce rate. The law allows Cook County superior courts and all Illinois circuit courts to set .up special divisions for handling divorce complaints. It is being challenged by Max Bernat of Chicago as a taxpayer. Judges are waiting on the Supreme Court decision -before taking steps to put the law in operation. The divorce and liquor cases will not be ready for decisions before the supreme court's March term. Buckeyes May BeHardUpIf Fesler Quits COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. «. UP)-— There's a pretty fair chance Ohio State may have a tpugh time snaring a "name" coach, should Wes Fesler resign his $13,500 job ai football boss of the Bucks. It's a foregone conclusion that Fesler, who led the Ohio Staters to the .Big Ten co-championship and a Rose Bowl win, will voluntarily end his coaching career within the next few days. And when the two-time All- America end swings over to a business Job, at around $25,000 a year, one of the nation's big coaching berths swings wide open. Right there Is where Ohio State may have to do a selling job to entice a new top-flight mentor, instead of the usual "pick and choose" method. A flock of names have been suggested for the post, If and when it opens. Among them are Paul Brown of the Cleveland Browns, probably the No. 1 choice of the fans and the last choice of the university athletic department; Sid Glllman, now in the first sea- ion of an eight-year setup at the University of Cincinnati; Don Faurot, chief of the Missouri Tigers; Bud Wilkinson of Oklahoma, whose chief assistant is Gomerd Jones, former Ohio State center and captain, and "Woody" Hayes of Miami University at Oxford, Ohio. Cass Michaels Returns Sox 9 Contract Offer By CHARLES C. CAIN DETROIT, Jan. 6. W—Second baseman Cats'Michaels has turned down two contract offers from the Chicago Whit* Sox but Is confident he and the Sox will get together on terms. "The White Sox management hat always treated me swell and I know that everything will work out okay," Michaels said today. Detrolter Michaels said he got the fir* offer early In December and <he wcond Just before Christmas. He returned both unsigned. Mlchaeli iummed up his case this way: "I read a lot about the high price the Sox put on me when they talked tradei this winter. "But If I told you what kind of a salary raise I was offered, you'd laugh." He did not discloi* the money involved. Michaels said he was "very happy" playing for .Chicago but he repeated his belief that he should get more money. . . . lt "After all. I led the club In hitting, runs batted In,-two bate hits, triples and a couple of other .things," Michaels explained. He batted .306 last year and Luke, Appllng-s .301 was the only other White Sox mark above .300. Michaels' name was mentioned frequently In the winter trading season and Detroit made t couple White Sox Sign WaraycVi, Shortstop CHICAGO, Jan. 6, UP) — Al War- gyckl, of Detroit, a shortstop, has signed a 195(T baseball contract with the Chicago White Sox, John Rlgney, director of the Sox' farm club, announced yesterday. Warzycki played with the semi' pro Glace Bay Miners In Nova Scotia last season and led tils league In batting with a .399 average. Golf ers Start Shooting Today At Los Angeles LOS ANGELES, Jan, 6 — <1Pl— The 24th annual Los Angeles Open and Ben Hogan's comeback get underway today. The once-mighty Hogan rejoins the nation's lead- Ing, golfers as they start their annual trek for winter purses that will aggregate more than half a million dollars. The Los Angeles offers the highest single prize, $15,000 with 2600 going to the winner and the remainder split into 24 places. It's a wide open tournament despite the fact that Hogan is slated to participate. Ben is invariably a man to beat, but this time it is different. The mighty mite is essaying a comeback from an automobile accident that all but killed him last February. It remains to be seen whether he can maintain his old time tournament form over the four-day, 72-hole -distance. Many experts believe he can. Some have even installed him as the favoijte. He has captured this same fixture three times, in 194247-48. The last tournament Hogan played was the Phoenix Open just- before his car 'and a bus collided in West Texas. For a time it appeared there would be no Hogan, golfer or otherwise. He beat the odds, regained some of his former strength and even now is playing golf long before it appeared he would be able to even shake a putter. The pairings matched him In a threesome with another winner here, Johnny Bulla, and Eric Monti, late in the field of 128 amateurs and pros. Par for the 7019 yard layout'is 35-36—71. There are others to watch, of course, all more robust in health than Hogan. They include Sam Snead, seeking his . second win here; National Open champion Gary Middlecoff; Jimmy Demaret and such amateurs as Johnny Dawson, Frank Stranahan and Bruce McCormick. Out of the picture is last year's defending champ, Lloyd Mangrum, with a bad shoulder, along with Ed (Porky) Oliver, who suffered a wrenched knee in a traffic crash enroute here from Seattle. Foes Confident of Senior Bowl Win JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 6, (JPt — The Rebel and Yankee squads will go into tomorrow's Senior Bowl football game with one thing in common—each has a hunch it's going to win. The victor will collect 60 percent of the net gate receipts. The losers will pocket 40 percent. It appears that, the Rebels, comprised of Southern and Southeastern Conferences college stars and coached by Steve Owen, will pin their hopes on a strong air game. Bo McMillin's Yankees, who haven't had anything resembling a rest period since assembling here early this week, also are relying heavily on passing. UCLA is tlie only present mem- bet of the Pacific Coast Conference that never has won a league basketball championship. The 1948-49 Navy basketball team was the first' in Academy history to score more than 1,000 points in a season. of tries at grabbing him before the Tigers settled for Gerry Priddy of the St. Louis Browns. Contract wifferences with the White Sox are Michael's No. 1 problem but he has a second one —the scheduled 1950 debut of his St. Thomas high school basketball team tonight. Michaels is in his fourth year of coaching the team and he explained that "running around and trying to keep up with those youngsters is a tough way of keeping In shape during the winter months." MPM, Mold Repair fin Onized Tilts Two games wete played Thursday night In the Owens-Illinois Glass Co. Intra-department league. ACMS defeated Mold Repair, 99-49, while MPM slipped past Ramblers, 52-45. In the Mold Repair tilt, ACMS was In the game only In the first period. The eventual losers trailed at that point, 17-13. That was the closest they got. Mold Repair went on from there to take a 37-28 halftlme lead. After three quarters, Mold Repair coasted, 66-33. High for the strong Mold Repair quintet wai Mudd with 14 baskets for 28 points. Next was Lee with 11 field goals and one free v toss for 23 points. Ramsey had 20 points to help out the Mold Repair cause. Lock poured in eight baskets and one free toss for 17 points for ACMS. MPM had to fight off a valiant rally by the Ramblers In the last quarter before it could claim victory. The MPM cagers led at the finish of the initial period, 14-16, and at the half, 27-16. But the Rambler's crept up In the third canto and closed the gap to four points, 38-34. Then in the last frame MPM staved off the Rambler rally to win. High for the winner* was Harold Ramsey with eight buckets for 16 points. Game honors went to Monlcal, though. He had eight baskets and four free shots for 20 points.

He was taken home so that medical treatment might be given. Others fell and received bumps but none was bad enough to require treatment.

Wood River Township Unit to Sponsor Blood Visit Monthly WOOD RIVER, Jan. 6 — With 11 organizations of a possible 82 represented, the Wood River Township Unit ot Community Blood Donors adopted by-laws and voted to sponsor 12 bloodmobile visits a year, one each month through the various member organizations, when the unit staged its January meeting at Roxana Community Center, Thursday night. J. W. Macke, representative of the Wood River Veterans of Foreign Wars, reported his organization has offered the use of the VFW Memorial Club building, E.dwardsvllle road, to the unit. The building affords ample parking space, kitchen facilities, floor space, and running water. Carl Roberts, chairman of the unit, presented a report, urging members to continue with all efforts possible to build the community unit to greater efficiency. He called the community blood program a blood insurance program, defining it as an effort by the community at large, the Red Cross and the hospitals to have blood available when patients need it, and to supply the Wood River township's need for plasma and other blood products at a minimum cost, and to prepare for local disaster and national emergency. Roberts linked the community blood program to the National Blood program, begun by the Red Cross to serve every community in the nation. The Wood River Township Unit ot Community Blood Donors, by the use of a mobile unit, will arrange for people to make blood donations. Doctors and nurses will take the blood from donors; technicians will test it for safe medical use, classify it into types, supervise its storage and plan its dlstrubu- tion to hospitals and doctors. Blood donated will be allocated for local medical use where the need is greatest. Although doctors and hospitals may charge for their services In administering blood transfusions, no one will be charged for the blood given by the community. Roberts said that although Wood River is a leader in many respects, it currently Is behind in this civic and charitable endeavor. "We are literally in debt for blood," he said, asking for solicitations of every organization. Central Trades Labor Union will sponsor the bloodmobile Jan. 14 at the union building, 47 West Ferguson, and Roberts ft as asked that each organization of the community provide at least six donors for the visit.

H., Jan. 6. (JP) —A young doctor charged with murder in the so-called mercy slaying of a cancer-plagued patient went into seclusion today— silenced by his counsel. Dr. Hermann N. Sander, 40, father of three children, was under instructions not to discuss the case with anyone except members of his legal staff. He left for an undisclosed des- tftiation yesterday after pleading innocent to an indictment charging murder in the first degree in -the death of Mrs. Abbie Borrato, 59, wife of a Manchester oil salesman who still remains loyal to the physician. The state charges air Injections administered by Dr. Sander caused the death' of the pain-wracked woman Dec. 4 at Hillsboro County Hospital. Under a court approved stipulation, Dr. Sander was obliged to Abandon his wide rural practice for the time being at least.

Itaal Cockney* The name "cockney" properly refers only to Londoners born within the sound of the bells of St. Mary-le-Bow church, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica. he and other diplomatic representatives of Chiang Kai-shek are no' longer recognized In London. Britain was the fourth nation outside the Soviet orbit to recognize the Chinese Communist government. India and Pakistan, both members of the British commonwealth, and Burma already have taken that step. The British foreign office said it had formally advised Communist China's minister of foreign affairs, Chou En Lai, of its desire to establish diplomatic relations. A reporter asked a British Foreign Office spokesman whether recognition of the Communists concedes them sovreignty over Formosa, Japanese-held through the war and earmarked as Chinese territory by Britain, the United States and China at Cairo In 1943. The spokesman declined to give a direct answer. legalization Ijitcr "The handing over of Formosa from Japan to China," he said, "was undertaken by his majesty's government in common with other governments at the time of the Japanese surrender. Final legalization of that process will take place at. the Japanese peace conference." Dr. Cheng Tien-hsi today termed the British action "equivalent (o burying % us whilst we are still very much alive." History, he said, "will say that China has received a knock-out blow, not from her foes but from het friends and former allies." Pelping Conmil Instructed The Foreign Office announcement said the consul-general nl Peiping had been instructed to inform Chou En-lai that the British government has withdrawn its recognition from the Nationalist government and that minister o( state Hector McNeil had informed the Nationalist ambassador in London of that action last night. British foreign Under-Secretary Christopher P. Mayhew last night reiterated the often-expressed British view that recognition of Communist China would not mean approval of the regime. "If we recognize the Chinese Communist government," Mayhew said, "it will be because it has become the effective government of China and not because we like its policies and practices. Acknowledgement of Fact "It will be an acknowledgemenl of fact and not a mark of approbation. "While recognition might be of some benefit to our commercial Interests in China, we have no illusions that It Will bring us any big or immediate advantages. "On the other hand nothing would be gained by boycotting indefinitely' a government ruling over a vast ,terrltory and population."
