Mr. Kieran, of course, has no need to invoke the reputation of his illustrious father but .1 think the reader would like to know that lie is the son of John F. Kieran, the noted essayist and radio pundit. It has: been necessary to edit his article slightly to make it fit the space, but I am confident that he will agree that the sense of the piece has not been impaired. Mr. Kieran writes: "I belong to no veterans' organization and have no complete political sympathies with any as yet existing. I. constitute a veteran's group of one — myself — to which no one else may belong. But, as a mater of conscience, I would like temporarily, to come to the defense of the AVC. "The veteran of this war is supremely conscious of his nation's position in world affairs and the vital, undeniable importance of the domestic problems co-extensive with it. It is his business and his right. The AVC serves as one medium of expression for him along this line. He is made articulate by his more gifted associates. That, of course, is typical of any pressure group in America. "I do not believe it fair to label an organization without giving it a chance to manifest its position by indisputable actions. To do this would be to weaken it prematurely and, to our own detriment, by keeping out the. persons we want in, sapping the effectiveness of those already members in whom we have faith and driving the others to an inconsistent position, winch they must, o£ necessity, adopt in order to meet our --.Hack and maintain their pride 'nlact' Meanwhile, as the cleavage, dissension and mutual hatred grow, the political opportunists and ideological misfits, who masquerade under every virtue known to man and -specializing in balancing interests, move in and 'capture.' "If that is what you want, the best way to get it is to brand the organization with What ever'stigma you most detest. "Myself, I hate branding and I hate, in general, the name-calling which has become an insidious disease, to this country in the last several years.

Cleveland and Luke Sewell, St. Louis, declared they fully expect to see their teams in the thick of.the pennant fight. None of the sextet ventured to name his team as the number one outfit, but neither did they yield an inch to other 'clubs. 1 Pbrhaps the most enthusiastic statements were made by O'Neill of the world champion Tigers and Sewoll of the 1944 pennant winning Browns/, "As defending champions we certainly must rate as the team to beat in the American League," O'Neill said. "We have good 'pitching, good catching a strong outfield and the infield will be okay/ We expect the greatest competition from New York, Boston 'and Cleveland, with Washington as the dark horse." Said Sewell: "Our club this year is 40 per cent better than our '44 champions and is the best team, I have had since I took charge in 1041. I'm satisfied the Browns will be in the batle for the pennant." All managers agreed the 1946 season will be one of the most interesting in the history of the game, basing their beliefs on the comeback efforts of pre-war stars who are expected to strengthen practically every club. •o " Broadway By JACK O'BRIAN • • New York — Joe E.

New York, April 15 — W— All this spring you've been hearing that baseball is back where it was before the war. If this is true, you could pick this year's finish in.the majors merely by referring to.the books for the 1941 standing: Amerr ican League — New York, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, St .Louis, Washington, Philadelphia; National — Brooklyn, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, New York, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia . . . Actually, it isn't true . . . Another Yankee-Dodger series is possible, of course, but most' of. the experts figure it will be the Cards in the National League. They wero just coming up during that last prewar season and hit their peak the next year . . . But even allowing for that switch there's no guarantee that the clubs will finish as expected. This may be the most uncertain of all baseball seasons, Time. Marches D.ept. Even with the return! of former service men and all but about 100 of the GOO or so who donned Uncle Sam's uniforms are back— you have plenty of, wartime changes to consider . . . For instance, you can get a dozen 'different opinions as to how the ex-GI's will get-along and probably'all of them are right. Some'undoubtedly, slipped back during their service, due to age, injuries or living under different conditions; some youngsters improved while playing in the army or navy;"there'lLbe some slow starters who'll regain their timing and speed as the season progresses and others who'll s,tart fast then . weaken Bunder the hot liiidsummcr sun There are: newcomers, who looked like , real major leaguers during the war- lime seasons. Will they look the same now that the real major leaguers are back? Dps And Downs • The only thing that seems' certain about the finish is that the Athletics and Phillies won't be both were dead last then . . . . worse off than before the war. The Among the others the White Sox and Hods, aging teams when they finished third in '41, haven't been able to do much rebuilding and are/rated as second division clubs now. The Tigers and Cubs figure to hold at- least part of- their wartime gains. New Faces In Old Places Since 1941 no fewer than five major league clubs have come under, new ownership — the-Yankees,, Dodgers, Phillies, Braves and'Browns. And for the Phils and Braves, at least, that means a real, effort to build up .... Both those clubs have acquired- new managers in that time as have the Cardinals, Cubs, Tigers and Senators, All those guys will be expected 1 to show they can hold their own in normal times ... In addition, Frank Frisch, Mel Ott, Joe Cronin and Jimmy Dykes may feel the edge of the fans' wrath 'unless they produce some winners, though they're in pretty solid with tne cluo owners. And'there's Joe McCarthy and Bill McKecnnie, both reported on the verge of quitting last year . . .What's the use of making forocasts this year.? Anything can and probably will happen except-a sudden loss of interest by the ians. ; So They Soy Unrest has increased as the first shock of defeat has worn off. -Gen.

If we disagree with the position taken by the AVC on cer- .ain problems, let us concede their fight to take that position without imputing to it sinister meaning. If we cannot do this, in all sincerity, I say that we are lost. I say ive have wasted 170 years in try- ng to figure out a blessed system tor man's relation to man or, if you will, man's humanity to man. "The AVC has not yet given us anything concrete to go on. It has lad to work through sketchy polls of whichever members could be contacted and through the cabinet- ype policy-making board it set up tor self-expression. It has not always been an accurate reflection of Ihe entire organization. So we have no real basis for abuse. In June Lhe first AVC convention will be held in Des Moines. There the majority voice will be heard in formu luting a platform of obpectives into which we can sink our teeth in constructive or destructive criticism. "It is a heterogenous group, containing, to my personal knowl edge, men of all creeds and beliefs, social and political. It is just beginning to find itself. It will, after June, take many strong stands on controversial subjects. I shall probably disagree violently with many of them. But I could not, in my heart, deny their right or refuse them my acknowledgment of their sincerity, to stand so, without, in effect, cheapening everything for which many of them, including Boltc, himself, Cord Meyer, Slier- main Laird, and others, fought voluntarily. "They will not be consistent for I don't think they have a "little 1 mass mind. There will be enough disagreement within the group to assure an honest airing of each issue. If you examine the legion closely or the Catholic church, or either major political party, you will find similarly many and varied approaches to all questions. The cago underworld.

RUTH MILLETT NEA Staff Writer Men, you are- being made to look silly. It was bad enough when you just let a tailor give you the once- over and decide which among your number were "best-dressed." But some of the singling-out that .- being done these days is even more ridiculous than that. An artist scrutnizes you and makes a choice of the men with the. most beautiful (or was it the most exciting?) heads. What's in 'em. doesn't matter; all that counts is how they look on the outside. And, now a sculptress, after looking you over, comes out with the statement that ears are the true index of. gentleman's real and. lasting affection. To emphasize her point, she makes specific reference to the ears of, famous men. The ears of one of-our ambassadors she describes as "satyr, king-size" — which, it seems, is -all'to the good. She judges a certain comedian's ears "piquant and' pointed;, devastatingly faun-like." How do you like that? IT'S ONLY FAIR Of, course, it really serves you right that you are at last being picked to pieces by anybody with an urge for "ten-best" selection. Women; have long been subjected to such titles as "the girl with the most perfect-legs," "'the girl with the most perfect- measurements," and "the girl who looks best in a. sweater." .There has been nothing sacrecT about feminine anatomy for a long, long time. And so the men have it coming to them. But you had better put a stop to it if you want to maintain the masculine dignity you prize so highly. It's slipping! "That was the only unhappy period in my cafe life," Joe told me when he was at the Copacabana. "Unless you call . Jlosing practically all the time oir'Vthe horses unhappy, I don't." There's a story, which Joe wouldn't say yes-or-no about, that he knew who had caused all his grief, but wouldn't squawk. The story also has it that many of Joe's admirers, numbering among A—Young man, 5 feet 8 3/4 ''• inches, 153'/£ pounds; young woman, 5 feet 3'/4 inches, 127 pounds, SEE US FOR ...

Hazel and Division strength of our country is in tolerating them. •Charles Bolte is a highly intelligent, sincere young man who is an excellent bulwark against Communist infiltration. He has been attacked many times by the Daily Worker. Merle Miller, to whom you referred in your column, wrote a scathing denunciation of any attempt, to get the AVC to follow'the Moscow line. "To the names mentioned as having been connected with organ! znlipns from which some rather dubious political opinions emanated, I can offset the names of Mr. Stassen, Cord Meyer, Oren Rot, Jr., Phil Willkie, Evans Carlson, etc., who seem to strike a sturdy balance of interest and strength. "Among personal acquaintances I can list such very valuable and undangerous persons as Laird, Peter Solbert. Kingman Brewster, Endicoll Peabody, Tom Hadley and a host of others, men of courage and integrity in whom I have complete faith. They more than balance . (Here Mr. Kieran named a conspicuous member of the AVC whom he appears to suspect.) "There may be several veterans of questionable political complexion in the AVC. I submit that they do not dominate. I believe that under its present leadership they will not dominate. When aarlja- mc-nlary methods are established in June we will see the recording of a sober, disputatious approach to issues. Then, if you and I disagree, we are free to speak sharply on the particulars. Until Uien, we do too much harm in spinning a tenuous web of political implication. The AVC is very representative. An attack on it before U has really matured will destroy it against ourselves. This is not what you want, nor I. If the AVOVfails to live up to my hopes, I.'.^and many like me, will have jusdficai tion enough to strike back in' defense of our ideals. And so we shall." , says Dr. Theodore D. McCown, U. of California anthropologist, who measured 1800 young men and 1000 young women.

Joe said no, that he didn't know, and that he'd been asleep when the attack happened. At any rate, Joe E. became one of the most admired fellows in show business in his struggle to get back on top. He's now earning between $4,000 pnd $6,020 a week, depending on the location, and, although the horses and gambling generally keep him busted, he says he's turning over a new leaf in his racing forn now that he's married to Martha. The tang of the turf still hangs around Joe's conversation, however' wejl- in-lentioned he is about quitting the bookmakers.
