Sinatra's French Crisis Represents Dangerous Moment in That Nation's History microphone • like Danny excuse was a punctured ear-drum, and the Brooklyn baseball club, which employs Durocher, states that he had the same trouble. Trouble might be the wrong word for it in view of the ^convenience that it spared them, "inatra was not only well within the draft age but a self-elected leader" of American youth, particularly of young girls. He gave $7,500 to Roosevelt's fourth-term campaign fund and lunched with him at the White House. Any suspicion that this political contribution was influential in the decision of the doctors which finally excused frorh' military service a young man with an income second or third in all the world, and a pugnacious attitude toward Nazis in stateside saloons and sandwich wagons, is the product of your own mind. Some authority had decided that certain ear-drum cases should be rejected. The problem of the doctor then became simply one of deciding whether this or that fellow's condition made him unacceptable. The bright idea back in the beginning was to save the government the expense in later ye^rs of pensioning men with chronic ear trouble and- complications who were predisposed by a condition existing when they were drafted.

There we have a situation which renders it highly problematical, ,as I see it, whether- any : stable government can be formed -without recourse to a new general election to secure a fresh mandate from the people. And having arrived at this conclusion we immediately find ourselves up against the haid question of whether a successful election could be held under present conditions..

Employes of the two concerns also identified the toy pistol seized with the gang as the one used in the holdups. Detectives said Graham had admitted cashing $4,300 in worthless checks in Atlanta.

Not many individual survivors could lick him now although he did call on a house detective to pin the arms of a discharged soldier while he, Durocher, slugged him on the jaw and smashed it.

On the one hand, international Communism has openly declared war on French Democracy. On the other, a party has been constituted in France which has as its objective, and perhaps its only objective, the separation, of national sovereignty from its fundamental- traditions." (Blum here was referring to General Charles De Gaulle's new people's rally, which recently achieved a sensational success in the country-wide municipal elections. Opponents of DeGaiille charge that he seeks a dictatorship). Blum capped his warning with the dramatic assertion: "I have come to sound the alarm."

J., Nov. 22 — (/P) —Joe Louis, on his "last night out" before settling down to a, week of intensive training for his Dec. 5 fight with Jersey Joe Walcott, provided a one-man show at the Wanaque Community Hall last night. The local American Legion post had scheduled an amateur boxing tournament with Joe invited to make an appearance and take a bow. But when none of the boxers showed up. Joe stepped into the ring and regaled the audience with stories for half an hour. Residents recalled that when Joe first trained here ten years ago, "yes" and "no" was about the extent of his conversation. But last night he made a big hit as an entertainer and none of those who paid to see a boxing show asked for their money back. o Top Teams Have Trouble in Playoff By CARL BELL Associated Press Sports Editor Favorities are finding the going much tougher than exp'ected in the Glass AA division of Arkansas' high- school football playoffs but so far they have managed to 1 survive first-round competition.

Sinatra and Durocher could have wangled a piece of this war somehow had they really hated the diiiy oppressors hard enough . Some physical conditions are legitimate grounds for exemption. But many of the ear-drum exemptions of the recent war were granted to men who could have been put to very useful army and navy jobs where they would not have been put lo very useful army and navy iobs where they would not have been opposed on. To be sure if Sinatra and Durocher had spent a few weeks in mudholes in winter, they might have had complications, but solid thousands of less wealthy and less hardy young men. Shells bullets and bombs cause complication, too. Swimming is generally forbidden to ear-drum jobs but Trudy Ederle swam the channel with an open ear-drun, and thousands of young bluejackets who had to swim when their ships went out from under them would have had a bargain if they could have settled for complications.

Eagan said LaMolta had visited Dr. Salerno three times during is training for the fight and that Salerno had advised him not to box because of a hematoma. of the spleen. Salerno reported that La- Motta had ignored this advice, Eagan disclosed. Eagan said the commission would consider the facts again after the results of the district attorney's investigation are presented to the New York Couny Grand Jury.

He said Boston got the Browns' "best player" in Shortstop Vern Stephens, and called Jack Kramer and Ellis Kinder the. two best pitchers the Browns had." Acquisition of the trio will make Boston "a hot contender next year," he predicted, "a great deal more than last season." The Yankee outfielder was also optimistic about his own club's chances, and recalled that his team mate, Charlie Keller, had paid him a visit this week. Commenting on his operation, the patient said the procedure had taken about 90 minutes. He said Dr. George Bennett.

The quoted words are those of Senator Tobey (R-NH). He hinted that his. Senate Banking Committee may take up where the War Investigating Committee left off after disclosures which brought denunciations of the retired air force general ranging from ','rotten ap pie" to "snake."

Two pounds of pure heroin, a drug so powerful that even physicians arc not permitted to have it n their possession, were found in his luggage. Police estimated the drug would retail for $3,116,800 when "cut". A draft card was the'only identification on the body. It bore the name Ralph Halsey, 308 52nd street, New York City.

Asks Approval of Emergency Aid Funds Washington, Nov. 24 —OT— Senator Vandentaerg (R-Mich) asked the Senate today for speedy approval of $597,000,000 ' emergency aid for Europe to defeat the "lurking tyranny' of "Communist aggression." Vandenberg, who heads the Foreign Relations Committee, left his ''I am accusing no one individually, but I think there is a lot of thinking being done about the next elec- <pjn." . It is his feeling he said that "people in responsible positions, as we are, should do the right thing when problems affecting the country's welfare arise, regardless of what might happen to them in the future politically. "The country is more important than the individual." On the question of aid to Europe, Norell said the United States must "do something for Western Europe and I feel strongly that we ought iVut to overlook China." ^*It would be nice to "get down to normal," he said, "but with the world afire it looks like we have ' got to put out the fire of Communism. We may not be successful but if we are not there will be an iron ring about us." An aid program, he said, should be on a "yearly conservative basis —not a long term basis." On the question of domestic economic problems, Norrell said "my information is that the Republican .leadership probably will not per- *>iit the entire domestic program of the president to be put through." He said he thought most of the program, except for President Tru man's recommendations on price control and rationing, probably wiir pass and added: "Whether this is too far or no far enough, time will tell.
