CARN'VAL Bv Dick Turner In the week preceding the formal acceptance o£ the Roosevelt ancestral mansion at Hyde Psrk by the Department of the Interior, an ti national monument several uress : . dispatches referred to this property as a shrine. In Ihc pure sense, a shrine is a place or object consecrated to some holy person. In the vulgar sense it may be anything from Huey Long's tomb, revered by many ignorant Louisiana backwoodsmen, to Red Grange's number 77 which he wore on the back of his sweater at the University ot Illinois and which, upon the close of his career, was solemnly withdrawn from issue, never to be worn by another. Hucy Long was a dangerous scoundrel who, for all we know or his Gestapo ever permiled any record to show, may have been assassinated by one of their number and not by the unfortunate Doctor Weiss who was instantly shot to tatters by the armed guards whom Hucy.' frankly- called "my thug- men." Some thousands of illiterates in Louisiana regarded Long as a savior and revere his memory just as, in Germany, millions of human beings including many highly intellectual persons, actually adored, Adolf Hitler and still regard him as a martyred deity. Franklin D. .Roosevelt was in no sense a holy person and so the memorial which he prearranged in his own honor; in a display of that taste which was characteristic of him, is not a shrine in the authentic meaning of the word. The one place in our country which most nearly constitutes a shrine is the tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Washington, who personifies all the Americans who were killed in the first world war.

Mrs. sal ? no f °ueht to preserve the union "What we need is a sprl of UNO ior our block to settle disputes over borrowed lawnmowcrs, garden tools and .;..;• stuff'? : ' This Curious World .."•By William Ferauson There are many, however, who do believe he consecrealed his life IP the service of humanity and if they would like to make the old mansion a national shrine in the true sense they should, be willing to go about it correctly. The correct way would be to hold a sort of trial upon his character at which all evidence of selfish purpose, dishonesty, duplicity, ingratitude and greed would be offered by the devil's advocates. Just who would constitute the deciding authority I am unable to suggest" unless they would wail for posterity to make the decision and this they seem unwilling to do. Such haste is unreasonable for time is long and he Will be dead forever and even after fifty years, a modest interval, would still have ages in which to enjoy his sainthood. Among the defects in this claim one of the most important would be the very terms by which the nation acquired this real estate. This gift was a tax dodge by which the candidate for sanctity intentionally relieved his heirs of a financial burden whereas other a«e- ing squires in the same neighborhood were denied the same privilege. Through the transfer, he imposed on tho common man, or tax-payer, for whom he professed great love, the perpetual expense of maintaining and policing a prop- E !' t £ Y hlch insta| iUy has been exploited as a partisan asset of the Democratic party. • The 22 million Republican voters have abstained from all orgies there. Ihe burden falls with special weight on his neighbors in the region, many of whom would testily that Roosevelt paid misery wages for farm labor even while he was denouncing greed and busing well-fed club-men of whom he was one, himself, being at that time a member of five clubs nil of which excluded .Negroes and some of which were frankly inhospitable to Jews. ',,,J l ? < i ? ecent , course at this time would have been to bequeath the mansion and the limited property on which it stands to the Democratic National Committee and other private groups similarly devoted to the exploitation of the Rooscwelt myth for political .and personal, nrofit. .The reason for tho haste is obvious. Those who want to make a Shrine of these premises have urgent political business in hand which would be furthered by the unprotcsted public acceptance of the old heap as a holy place and delay would permit the discovery of more and more proof that Roosevelt abused his office < 0 enrich members of his family and personal proteges. No fair inquiry can be had until the Democratic party loses control of Congress and the Republicans or some IIPW opposition shall get control o? the appropriate investigating committees. If that should occur within say, the next two years, criminal prosecutions would ensue against survivor rascals of the bund during which, incidentally, the reputation of Roosevelt would be revised ac- online! of truth" gid reslgns ^ The promoters of the myth, including President Truman, arc aware of the handicap which they impose on those who cherish truth above political advantage in their U6HT OF THE MOON PARK OF rue MOON HAVE NO SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE/"."

Mel Ot and Hal Newhouser were the only holdovers from the wartime campaigns in the select circle, dominated by ex-GIs, that delighted 236,730 .fans at yesterday's eight big league openers. The first day of the 1D4G cam-' paign, widely nailed as the begin-' ning of a new golden era in sports, I was a huge success both financial ly and artistically. Attendance showed more than a 100 per cent increase over the 1945 figures and was the second highest in history. DMggi'o, Williams, Greenberg and Ott revived the home run fever that has been running low in wartime seasons and Feller, Newhouser and Spud 1 Chandler showed the boys some fancy pre-war chucking.

SPORTS ROUNDUP New York, April 17 Ernest John Frederick Lanigan has the idea of adding a Hall of Records to the Baseball Museum and Hall of Fame and Ernie should be the one to put it over . . . After a dozen years with the International League, the 73-year-old Lanigan is going' to Cooperstown to look after the little red brick building where the great figures of baseball are enshrined . . . "My idea," he explains, "is to gather all vhe records and statistics there so that the scribes will know where to turn when they need information. It's the logical spot for them." ... -- - — — — What he fails to add is what all scarcest of reference books on the him to the Adirondack mountains to. recuperate It was then that ing of the lot.

Potter and the St. Louis' Browns before the day's largest crowd; 52,118. ; DiMaggio and Chandler also provided a one-two punch for the. New York Yankees ,who appear to be headed back toward the heights. Jolting Joe's 400-foot clout with Tommy Henrich on base eased the ace righthander along the way to a five-hit 5-0 shutout of Philadelphia as Shibe Park's largest opening day turnout, 37,472, watched in awe. Williams, making his first- big league appearance since 1942, uiruled President Truman and 30,372 Washington fans with a 430- foot home run, the longest seen at Griffith stadium in 15 years. Tex Hughson sprinkled 11 Senator hits along the route for a 6-3 Boston verdict over Roger Wolff. Feller turned in the prize pitching job, a. three-hit,. 1-0 blanking rif Chicago but the Cleveland fire,ball artist needed a belly-flop catch by Bob Lemon, another ex-GI, to save tne game in-the ninth inning. A chilled crowd of 2C.1U6 watched Feller win his duel with Specs Dietrich. New York Giant power, widely advertised .all spring, was very much in evidence as Manager Ot's 511th round triper .sparked the Polo grounders. to an 8-4 decision over the Phillies. After Ott and Ernie Lombard! had delivered early homers, Danny Murtaugh and Ron Northey found the range on Bill Vpiselle to give the Giants and the 3,693 spectators a thorough scare. The vaunted St. Louis Cardinal pitching staff went haywire, yielding 11 hits, two wild pitches, eight walks .and a hit batsman in losin; to Pittsburgh, 6-4 • before 14,001 payees. Starter Johnny Beazley was clouted early and often but reliefer Harry Brecheen lost the verdict to fireman Ken Meinlzel- man. Chicago's National League champs had to rally with four runs in the ninth to shade Cincinnati, 4-3, after Joe Beggs had held them to one hit in the first eight innings. The Reds had their customary large opening turnout, 30,699 paid. A mulfed fly by Rookie Outfielder Gene Hermanski and a boot by Shortstop Pee Wee Reese enabled Boston i.o score two unearned runs and a 5-3 win over Brooklyn. Boston turned out 18,261 strong to watch Billy Southworth make a successful debut as Braves' manager, Johnny Sain outlasted Hal Gregg for the pitching .verdict. he thought of adding slugging records and runs-bated-in to the box scores though what he calls his "most miraculous contribution to the pastime" came some years later when he got the score keepers to record the winning and losing pitchers ...

"I never liked my Uncle Fred so I didn't use it," lie said. "You know about Ed Rousli's middle name. No? It was just 'J.' He had two uncles, John and Joseph .... And Tris E.
