To be official,, it. seems, a championship must he :recognized as New York, July 8 — The Pat tern Makers' League, a small union of the A. F. of L. has challenged that part of the new labor relations law which forbids unions lo spend their money for campaign literature and other political propaganda. Apparently there is a scramble afoot among the boss unioneors to achieve a painless martydom in defense of the "freedom of the press." The assumption is that this part of the law will be condemned on constitutional grounds by the supreme court or' that even if it should be upheld, the punishment would be glorious and luxurious. The announcement of this defiance is political propaganda, published in the July issue of the Pattern Makers' Journal, and the cost of the Journal is paid by the members through their dues. This is a very good union, as unions go, composed of aristocrats of a skilled trade and conducted generally in their interests- rather than for the solo personal benefit of any boss. For their money, the men could hire a better writer than the author of the challenge which resounds with : the dull, dumb clam or of a rusty bucket and com pletcly fails to state the issue. For rapier thrusts;, we see the editor falling on his face as he re fers to Senator Taft as "Bobbie" and Congressman Hartley as "Freddie" and he is overdramatic when he cries, after Patrick Henry, "Give me \liberty . or give me dearth." No issue of life or death exists here. Capital punishment is not provided even in the most flag rant cases. The .members of the Pattern Makers' League, being ra- ,her superior, are likely to curl a ip at the heroics of a brave prop agandisl in the national office who says he is willing to die that .free dom may live when lie is throat ened, at worst, with a slap in the face. As to the issue, let us see. Does this law impair the free dom of the press in forbidding union publications, supported oat of the members' duos, to publish campaign literature or support can didates? It is a 'borderline case aut decision in such cases can't straddle the border. I say freedom of the press is not involved. The forbiddance is against the use .of certain money for certain a, right support Where the Tlying Saucers' Play such by some recpghized organization. There is no south-wide boxing organization. : ^ Watts''plari involvesJiolf a dozen or so southern heavyweights, including Bob Sikes of Little Rock, Ragon Kinney of. Hartman, Ark., Oscar Buchanan of Memphis and Tommy Gomez of Tampa, Fla.. Kinney, who last year" voiced a claim to a mythical southern title, and .Buchanan will square off in a ten-rounder here Thursday night, and the winner will get a 'Shot at Sikes, who displays a "southern championship" belt .awarded him by a group of Memphis sportsmen before World War Two. The winner of this second scrap, reasons Watts, should be considered the southern titlist and :f Gomez or any Other puncher wants to try to wrest the honor from him he can do so. At least the fight public can regard the winner of such an elimination series as the champion," Watts said today, "and they'll have good enough reasons." Feeling his plan is a step in the direction of establishing recognized southern championships, Watts said he hopes, a Southern Boxing Commission will be formed some day to put an end to the practice of more than one fighter claiming a title. Until such time as this is done, he believes, a fighter recognized as tops • in his weight by a majority of the boxing commis- .jjions of.the various southern states ••might . well be an • official champion. He said that was the method employed in 1927 when he claimed a southern featherweight crown.

If you concede the political hygiene and justice of the income tax at all, you can find" ho constit- tional fault with this provision. We don't have to give a church or ed ucational institution any exemp tion. This exemption is- a special privilege and its terms have been violated defiantly by men of -the cloth and political fakers who run espionage rackets in the guise of educational concerns. Several years 'ago I pointed out a case to Henry Morgenthau in which a clergyman, whose authority cov ercd a large number of churches, had interfered in a strictly political issue and asked him what he in tended to do about it. Henry said he wasn't going to do anything. He wasn't fioing to pick any trouble with any church, guilty or not. That is just what he said and, of course., that was a corruption .of government because he admitted that there had been a flagrant violation. I mention this because the Pat tern Makers' League gets heroic in defense of .eligious freedom- too when it says "some resentment was expressed by the politicians on Capitol Hill because religious lead ers voiced opinions of the Taft Hartley bill." I think the Pattern Makers' Journal has got. that a little wrong. These politicians, or statesmen, did not resent the expression of these religious leaders, although some in dividual members of one religious group certainly were sore as the devil at being told what to think. These politicians, or statesmen, merely pointed out that these religious leaders had forfeited the tux immunity which the law grants lo their congregations under certain definite restrictions which these clergymen' thoroughly under stood. I do not dispute their righl to interfere in politics. But they should be the last to evade or dis obey the law and should pay theii axes now without argument.

The American and National League bosses by-passed the hottest issue brought before tb«m — recognition of the Pacific Coast League as a third big time circuit. They referred the question to the executive council headed by Commissioner Chandler, until the December meeting. The magnates also tabled the Cuban winter league's request to allow major leaguers to play in off-season games and a Los Angeles proposal to play Ihe all- star game in the Pacific Coast City. Meanwhile, George M. Trautman, president of the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues, announced that 12 Cuban players ruled out of the game for playing without permission in the Cuban winter league would be reinstated upon application to his office. . He said the Cuban league • was about to reach an agreement with the association on future operations. He said the players would be reinstated if they applied before October 20. The players concerned were Andres Fleitas, Antonio Castanos, Agaplto Mayor, Salvador Hernandez, Ch nioVl&divia, Mosquito Or- dcnana .pliverio Ortiz, Antoni oRodriguez, A. Roche, Ramon Roger, Jorge Torres and Daniel Doy. None of the players have played in the major leagues but the reinstatement decisions' meant they could participate in any U. S. classification of baseball including the inajors, or the AA and AA circuits. The powerful Deal homered with, a mate aboard in the 10th frame of the encounter after the Sulphur Dell fans had nervously watched the Protnromen pull into a 3-3 tie in the ninth inning. Knocking the props, from under Wade's bid for his 13th triumph of the year Deal's homer netted the Chicks a 5 to 3 win and caused the Vols to fall back a game in their drive to overtake third place Chattanooga in the Dixie standings. Dick Mauney started for the Chicks and gave the Vols a three- run advantage before he was pulled for Homer Spragins in the eighth. . Fireballer Hal Toenes strengthened Chattanooga's position by scattering eight hits for a 7 to 3 lookout win over visiting Little Rock. Toenes had only one weak moment — when rollicking Ken Sears, Pebble backstop,' poled a homer in the sixth with one on. The 'Noogans came back in the seventh to score four tallies-and knock Carl Lindquist, the losing twirler, from the mound. : Fancy four hit chucking by John Hall gave the Mobile Bears a 5 to 1 win over- the Atlanta Crackers in the Bayshore City. Hall notched his nine win by- hurling scoreless ball until the final frame when Ernie Logan, Sally League home- run king from Charleston, glorified his debut in cracker uniform by slamming a four-master. Another Cracker addition, Pitcher Barnev Cook, late of New Orleans, didn't fare so well in making his first appearance. Cook had to be relieved of his mound duties in the eighth .by Charley Mistos and was charged with the loss. New York, July — (/P) — Joe Louis, who usually manages to say the right thing, seems to have skidded in his knowledge of mathematics or human nature when he figured the public wouldn't pay 15 cents to see him fight Sweden's Olle Tandberg. . . Joe isn't enough to remember when they ported France's- "orchid man", Georges Carpentier, to fight Jack Dempsey. . . . Georgeous Georges was better known by reputation than Tanderb is, but as an opponent for Dempsey he was so weak that they made him do his training in secret. . . Nevertheless, that 1921 tight at Jersey City drew boxing's first million dollar gate. The public paid $1,789,238 and promoter--Tex Rickard almost threw a fit for fear the bout would end so quickly the customers would start a riot.

Greenville shut-out Hot Springs, 7 to 0, on the four-hit hurling of southpaw Billy Briggs. Briggs struck out 11 Bathers while his mates rapped Hot Springs' Pete Wojie for 14 sai'eties. The challenging Greenwood club marked up its fifth victory in the last six games by nosing out Helena's Seaporters, 4-3. With the score deadlocked, 3 to 3, Greenwood pitcher Ray Moore won his own game with a homer over the left field fence in the last of the ninth.

Motorcycle Mob Gives California City Bad Time Hollister, Calif., July 7 — (#•)—A disorderly mob of pleasure - bent motorcyclists, their reckless spirits fired in many cases by liquor, gave this normally quiet Central California, county seat a bad time over the week-end. v During the ritous distrubance, in which police were defied and order was restored only after scores had been jailed, at least to persons were injured, some seriously. The turmoil started Friday, when some of the motorcyclists ignored local police and began using the downtown area as a combined racetrack and stunting area. "If We had jailed everyone:who deserved it we'd have herded:them in by the hundreds," declared one outrage policeman today. As it was, police heaved more than 5 law-breakers into jail and collected fines-of more than $2,000. Charges included drunkenness, drunken driving, disturbing the peace and reckless driving. Jail sentences also were impsoed in the more serious cases but no tabulation had been made on the number of jail penalties. The city's main thoroughfare, San Benito street, was littered with the cracked beer bottles and other debris. Thirty-two special officers, including state highway patrolmen haeded by Capt. L. T. Torrs, assisted the seven-man Hollister force in controlling the distrubanees. The cyclist, here on what they called a "Gypsy tour," with a flat race and hill climbing contest thrown in as added attractions, came from California, Oregon, Arizona and Nevada. Hollister police estimated there were at least'4,000 visitors, about 750 of them riding motorcycles.

The second-place Dodgers yesterday look both ends of a twin bill with Helena. 5 to 4. and 2 to 1, while the best Greenville could do was split with Hot Springs. Clarksdale also divided its doubleheader with El Dorado. Greenville won the opener, 9 to 5, but the Bathers came back to win the second contest, 9 to 1. A total of seven homers were hit in the day's play, with the Bucks getting four of them. In the first game, Greenville got to iour Hot Springs hurlers for 17 salelies. Clarksdale copped the first contest from El Dorado, 5 to 1, as Sam McCraney worked on the mound for his llth triumph this season. In the finale, the Planters blamed six errors for a 10-to-O loss to the Oilers. Tonight'* game*: El Dorado at Clarksdale Greenville at Hot Springs- Helena at Greenwood. New Orleans kept pace with the front-running bears by downing Birmingham 4 to 2 behind Walt Cress' seven-hitter. Jack Tegan started for the Barons and was charged with the loss after Gene Babbitt took over in the sixth inning. The Pelicans erred three times before the home-town crowd at Pelican park while the Barons were, faultless afield. All series are resumed tonight. o _ . National Loop Team Hopeful of Victory By JOE REICHLER Chicago, July 7 — (/P) — For a Baseball club that has been flat- ened nine times in 13 starts, the Mational League squad today was a surprisingly cocky outfit .on the eve of the 14th all-star baseball ;ame at Wrigley Field. So confident was the older circuit of winning. from the Americans tomorrow that Brooklyn's Halph Branca and Boston's War•en Spahn, two important mem- sers of all-star pitching staff, pried yesterday in a championship game between the Dodgers and Braves, just two days before the inter-league battle. Thus Spahn and Branca have practically elimi- lated themselves from all-star competition. On Saturday night, Philadelphia's Schoolbov Rowe, another nembcr of the staff of seven, lurled a complete game against .he New York Giants. And Jchoolie, only player to make both eague all-star teams, has not worked all season without a full week's rest between assignments. That leaves Blackwell, the hot:est pitcher.in the majors, Harry (The Cat) Brecheen and Red Mun- ler of the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston's Johnny Sain as the only National League hurlers who will pe fully rested for tomorrow's 'ray. On the other hand, every mem- aer of the American League's eight-man mound corps will have lad four days of rest with the exception of Frank Shea and Joe Page. It may be recalled that last year National League President Ford Frick, chagrined over the ease with which the American League all-stars romped over the National 12-0, made one on his inspirational talks to his hirelings and out of it came the announced determination of the older Ijeague to go "all-out" for this years tussle. Frick was especially vehement in his denouncement of certain players who had to be excused from the 1946 game. What Frick felt upon being informed that Cincinnati's Eddi Miller, who was the number one choice for the shortstop post in the fan poll, had bowed out, might well be imagined. Miller, who played throughout the holiday weekend for the Reds and who has not missed one of the Reds' 75 games thus far, asked to be excused because of a sore right shoulder.
