By CAKJ, LUNOQUJST United I'rcss Sports Writer NEW YORK, Jan. 7.--(U.R)--Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio bumped into each others' headlines today in an off-season journalistic crack-up by which, through some-,' body's bad timing, they both came j to 1948 salary terms on the same' day. The premier American league sluggers both got fat raises, too, as befitted outstanding performances in the 1947 season which found DiMaggio of the Yankees getting the league's most valuable player award by one tenth place vole over Williams of the Red Sox. Williams, the bean-town beari- pole with the fat bat, settled up yesterday for $80,000, while DiMaggio, " the lanky Yankee with the v/idc stride, had to sign for !$6r,000. but he got the bigger raise of the two. $3,000 I5oost for Williams At Boston, General Manager Joe Cronin, who previously has dealt v ith thumoinij Theodore only on the ball field, announced in his new capacity as lied Sox general manager that Williams had wired acceptance of 1948 terms from his winter retreat at Princeton, Minn. Williams' salary represented a S5.000 boost from his 1947 figure and was granted without even long- distance haggling in view of the fact that he earned his keep and then some by leading the league Durocher IN THE Sporis Parade in baltijig with a .343 mark, in home runs with-32. in runs batted in with 114, and in runs scored with 125. Actually, steady Teddy wasn't down .on the dotted line as was DiMaggio and there seemed a remote chance that he might kick up a little fuss over a low provisions, but Cronin said that he wasn't concerned about it. $21,230 Increase .for DiMaggio ·DiMaggio, who had an even big. gor post-Avar comeback last summer than bubble gum, was rewarded with his first raise in MX years an increase of $21,250 over his previous^'salary of $43,750. He followed by only a few day: his outfield colleague, Tommy Hen rich, in'signing up for 1948 and Henrich, too, received a substan tial increase. Thus with the Yankee owner setting the pa^e in the salar. league as their .players did in win ' ning the 1947 world championship there were general indications that next season's major league payroll would be the highest of all time. The Yankee payroll on the basis of the raises to DiMaggio and Henrich and to other players who already have signed for 1943, was expected to go over §500,000, which would represent an all-time major league high, exceeding even that of the New York club in the heyday of Babe Ruth, who made $80,000 a year by himself.

All Dark has to do to round out I the Braves is live up to 50 per j cent of his raves and be half as ' good a shortstop as he was a run- j ning and passing back for LSU.

If Ernie White could stage a comeback, the Braves' pitchers would slam the door in the faces of a lot of batters.

The collection will be made with trucks and the paper bundles will be picked from the curb every place in Harrisburg. "The emphasis on old corrugated boxes and paper such as brown craft bags is being made because these two types of paper are especially needed by the mills which use waste paper in the manufacture of numerous paper products," said Eddie Wise, chief of the Harrisburg Junior Police. "We are anxious to make our drive as beneficial to American industry and the public as possible at the same time that it raises money for the Junior police.
