"Happy" Chandler would "be Blsd" to see baseball becprne World-Wide, if the government is interested in using the game to Improve relations with other countries. Baseball's commissioner made that comment to a reporter today when he visited the nation's capital to see Washington,and Boston play thetf third game or the infant 194<J iirtajor league season. "BaseTball has a great contribution to make (in the international field) and I would want it to mean something," he said. The State Department is the proper agency to look into such impossibilities, Chandler added. He is "ready at any time to sit down with such officials" to consider the possibilities of popularizing the sport around the globe. Baseball already has a start in many countries. During the war and shortly after, American servicemen introduced it in Italy. France, Germany and throughout the*Pacific, and revived it in Japan. The..-.sport, has a hold in South America, Cuba, Mexico and the Npthrrlands. .

Luther Fuller, chairman of the show, tolct tne prusiacnt that me tsvo-month-olcl calf was "raised in the black lime country ouisicie Montgomery where Jeff Davis was made president." As Mr. Truman circled around Alabam for the benefit of photographers, he observed, "he's hungry — he ought to have a mamma." Alabam agreed. "B-a-a-a-a-a-w," he said. Fuller remarked that "he ought to be put on a nurse cow tonight." The president ordered Alabam turned over to Secretary of Apiculture Clinton P. Anderson 101- rearing until he reaches beef ma- turjty. Then he will be shipped overseas. A large delegation of farm group officials accompanied Alabam to Washington.

By Dick Turner Wallace Sherlock, the editor of the Fail-field, la., Daily Ledger, composed a poetic editorial essay recently lo which this is a reply and a sequel. From some misinformed source. Mr. Sherlock had heard of a sad occasion In a beautiful room in a fine hotel in New York at which a number of young American soldiers, blinded in the war, wore entertained by pretty girls, whose loveliness was lost to them, and by others, including me. "Grim-faced," is the way Mr. Sherlock described me, with \vhal accuracy I do not know, vet, "Look, he is shedding scalding tears of sympathy." "When we were a teen-aged boy," Mr. Sherlock wrote, "we became the owner of a saddle that had belonged lo a cowboy who hud fought with Sheridan at Fisher's Hill and Cedar Creek." Crudely etched on the pommel were these words: 'A sword's real worth Is • In its flawless steel. A irian's true worth Is in his power lo feel.' "These lines may be children of the fertile brnln of Charley Vcr- trees, Ihe cowboy, or they may be the lines of some master. They are true, the mijn who can-feel-for his fellow has true worth in his heart. Many . are the limes this writer loses patience with Wcstbrook Pegler. He writes paragraphs a block wide and sentences a mile long. We have lo chop.lhem up into shorter ones so we, us well as our readers, can understand them. But any man who can shed sympathetic tears must have a-sacred source-tucked away In his inmosl soul. We will try riot lo become peeved when we read his copy for Ihe Ledger lo- morrow." May I say that Mr. Sherlock's informant was mistaken, that I was not present at Ihe gathering described and that those who cry dry arc no less sensitive lhan Ihose who weep wet? I am never suspicious of persons who weep openly and moislly when moved by woe but I must recall period when lawyers in criminal practice bawled heort-rendingly for defendant rascals in court and preened themselves on their art over corned beef and cabbage and rye, straight, in the saloon across the street-'during recess or after pourt. On the -other hand, 1 have a plain memory of English fathers and mothers down at Charing Cross to see their litlle, pink-faced, teen-age subaltern sons off lo France wilh nol so much as a blink but only smiles and (a final) "cheerio" and an answering "loo- dle-oo maler and paler," as Ihe train pulled away. God know they were weeping, even bleeding, in their-hearts but they are a sloic breed regarding public tears as indecent or, anyway, unseemly, whereas the French, certainly no less brave, wept .openly when they parted at the station gates, and the Poilus as copiously as their wives and parenls. Again to the other side of the coin, we had a few years ago a cynical and mercenary young poli- ticiah on..the radio who melted in his scalding tears shed i'or little tots condemned lo squalor in abominable slums, as he perceived things, because Congress had rejected some housing bill but, him- seltV in Ihe course of a few years, casually abandoned, through divorce, four children of his own born him by 'two wives. Discussing a mutual friend one day. with a great writer who had done some beautiful lines of pathos, I told him that our friend's wife had died a few weeks before. "Yeah?" he said. "Well, she was a lot of expense, nurses and doctors all the lime. And there was Ihe anxiety, loo." There is a strange cliche among us Americans which holds Dial open lears are unmanly an<i yel admires Ihem extravaganlly ' in uncoulh, rugged lypes such as Eugene Field's three-fingered Hoover who could brave the storms and wilds "but any chilld could rend apart;" The same quirk regards as worthy of pointed remark, usually facetious, the fact that a masculine' man should be fond of flowers and even send himself flowers at his holel room, when he is on the road to brighten the standardized dreariness of his cell. We .also.' think it ' admirable that a mqn. should -sympathize with the uhder-dog and I once crossed up', my. friend Hugh Johnson, along -of ' this. Coincidence woult} jiave it ;that on a day when he wrote a very generous piece about me and said that I was ever on the side of the under-dog I wrote one noisily repudiating this fallacy and pointing out that if Hitler should ever be Ihe underdog I would be rooting for the top-dog. . Therefore, while tears may be honored as a true expression of deep feeling, their absence is no more to be regarded as evidence of heartlessness than, in our courts, the failure of a defendant to take the stand may be noted by the nroseculion as a suggestion of guilt. On the same general subject I lately heard a story of a peon whose wife had died and whose friend, Pedro said: "Juan, your grief was magnificent." ..ill?'' Gracias . Pedro," Juan said. Where did you saw me?" "I saw you to the church." "Oh, you should have saw me 'VX'lf' ' <:'. -V-.V •''•'*• •' - • * 6>j 4 ; i'" |. AW.;".. Yes.

The Cubs won the 1945 pennant aecause of a hex that gave them 21 victories in 22 games against the Reds. Now they are out to take advantage of the situation again. The National League champions won their second straight game :rom the Reds, 11 to 7 yesterday, but as on opening day they were a beaten ball club going into the ninth inning. Cincinnati had a 7 to C lead going into the ninth when Cub batters went to work and scored five runs. Phil Cavoretta .urned the tide with a two-run inmer and set the pace at bat for the day with'- three hits in four .rips, batting in four runs. On opening day, Pitcher Joe Beggs of the Reds had a one-hit •shutout Koing' into the ninth when Chicago broke loose and won, •} to 3. Whether the Cubs, can maintain '.he mastery is problematical, but Me Reds now appear to be at a >ad * 'psychological disadvantage. The cards seem to be stacked [gainst -them. The St. Louis Cards made up for a bad opening day start, scoring a " to 0 shutout over the visiting 'ittsburgh Pirates behind seven- lit pitching of Lefty Max Lanler. Two big blows in the seventh, Stan Wusial's triple followed by Enos Slaughter's homer, were the hit- .ing highlights. To rookies. Bob Joyce of the -.lants and Hank Behrman of the Dodgers made winning National League debuts in the other games. Joyce, 31-year-old "late bloomer" 'or the Giants struck out nino batters and gave up seven hits in pealing the Philadelphia Phillies, 5 to 2 at'New York. The Giants got only lour hits, but nine walks by Frank Hoerst helped in the run- making. Behrman Rot -over the first-inning shakes to pitch Brooklyn to .a 4 to 2 victory over the Braves at Boston. Overcoming unsteadiness which threatened to consign him :o an early shower, he pitched shutout ball after the second and Halted a budding rally in the eighth by striking out two pinch hitlers with Ihe lying runs on base. He slruck out five batters. Happiest man in the American League was Bobo Newsom of the Athlelics, who rewarded Ihe failh of Manager Connie Mack by holding the Yankees to three hits in a 7 lo 1 yiclory at Philadelphia. Newsom, biggest loser in the American League with 20 defeals lasl year, persuaded Mack to lake another chance on him and came through by silencing the Yankee sluggrs. Aaron Robinson, who got a homer and single, was the only Yankee to bother him. The Hartsville, S. C., veteran rounded oul a big ,day by-.- droping , two perfect sacrifice bunts, one of which produced a squeeze run. Cleveland got another fine pitching job to beat the White Sox again at Chicago, 7 to 1. Allie Reynolds gave up five hits and was supported ably at bat by Ken Keltner who hit two homers and a double to drive in five runs. An error gave Chicago its only run in the two game series, Bob Feller scoring an opening day shulout. Boston's terrorizing hitlers were out in force again at Washington, geting 15 blows off five Senator pitchers in a 13 to G triumph. Ted Williams got two doubles -and a single, Johnny Pesky got three singles and Dom DiMaggio got a three run homer and single. The St. Louis Browns made four runs in the last two innings to beat the Tigers at Detroit, 7 to 6. Walter Judnich's two run homer in the eighth put them back in the running, Lou Finney singled in the winning run in the ninth. The Tigers had gone ahead, 6 to 3, breaking a 3-all tie with five successive hits in the seventh. o Yesterday's Stars By The Associated Press Ken Keltner, Indians — Hit a pair of homers a double to drive in four runs in Cleveland's 7-1 victory over the White Sox.
