Children derive pleasure from a magical entertainment that can only be equaled by the glamour of Ihe circus " So asserted Birch, Master Magician, who will present his mystifying array of tricks and illusions to Hope audiences next Friday night at 8 o'clock. "I have been interested in „ ic and its manifestations since I entered high school, and I hope I shall always maintain this engrossing study." the distinguished magician declared. "I believe that magic appeals to both young and old—» at least to those between the ages of six and ninety-six. I do not feel any lack of enthusiasm after more than twenty years of entertaining the public. But I find it necessary to be 'on my toes' to keep mv performance new and different." During these years tBirch and Company have toured throughout the United States and Canada Several months each summer are spent m creating new effects and building spectacular illusions in a magical completely finest, most machinery.

Opt of a maze of trade rumois involving ncaily every major leqgue team represented'here, on the eve of the opening of the National Association's convention, has come the news that the Yankees, have completed a deal for Pitcher Walter Masterson of the Washington Senators. "Manager :Bucky Harris of the Yankees admitted that a deal for a starting pitcher was on the fue, but added that no official announcement would be made until the major league conclave which begins next Monday in New York. "We should have an important player deal announcement to make in New York next week," Hains said. "In fact, it looks as if we might have two deals to announce. Masterson won 12 games and lost 16 last season.

HAMMONS TRACTOR CO. Phone 1066 8. Walnut 8t COQMNG, MOTORS, and APPLIANCES or anythins ELECTRICAL CO. New York, Dec. 2 Mrs. Willa Mitchell, Cincinnati, O. Dear Mrs. mitchcll: In the November Issue of the official magazine , of the teamsters' union,, you write about the poverty and anxiety of a mother of four children, between 8 and 15, whose husband, a union driver; works 11 : or 12 hours a day for about $55 a week. I assume that Mr. Mitchell's take-home pay is much less. You said you .were a little better off than some other teamsters' families because your rent was only $17.50 a month and the average pay of the others, on the word of the union, itself, was only $50. This. is a queer advertisement- for a union whose high-salaried royal group," courtiers, nobles, and intri- gants, some of them; fat and pompous and others loan and hungry, are always boasting of their priceless service to the men who drive 'those motorized box cars over the icy highways — the likes of Mr.,, Mitchell. It they have done so much to earn their enormous pay and 'lavish expenses and the. loyal attachment of the little people, as Mrs. .Roosevelt called all you Mitchells a'gain; recently, that Service doesn't show in your own report on the financia condition of your family. You don't need a union these days to got your pay up to $55 a week foi five days of 11 or 12 hours. I will quote from your report on the teamsters and contribute some discussion later "My husband hasn't had a raise for more than 18 months and prices were going up all the time. We have what you would call five meatless days a week On the other .two days,' \ve have steak or roast. The rest of the time it's cold cuts anrl vegetables We haven't had butter for 18 months. We use only margarine. The children come first so if there is any money to buy .clothes, they get it. My 'husband hasn't bought an oveicoat an four years. My winter coat is throe years old. In the last three years I have bought three drosses. We have been lucky that none of us has been really sick, I try to doctor the children but I call a doctor whenevci I pet \voriicd Oulsidc of an_ auto ride to Maysville, Ky., occasionally, we don't have much recreation. We haven't gone to a movie or a show for a long time We have had to tum in oji war bonds and get a loan for a frigi- daire so we could keep food cold and my husband needs the car to Ret to woik My husband will have to get a good raise soon or we will go under. We used to be able to get enough food with our money. That was befoic they took off puce controls Pi ices will have to be controlled again qnd wages will have to. be made high enough so everyone can at least live without worry." You tempt me to wander off ]n an argument on puce contiol but I will just lay it down and continue Price contiols no longei controlled pi ices The black maiket had taken over and there was no meat at all, you will remember if you think back, at ceiling puces and the black market prices were awful. Then, President Truman, himself, just about election time, wiped out most of the controls in a vain grab for votes and thereafter Congress, not the National Association of 'Manufacturers, repealed the O.P.A., and it was Congress also, not the N.A-M , that passed the Taft-Hartley law, not once but twice. Your union bosses in the International Teamsters and other publications will tell you that the N.A.M. passed the Taft-Hartley law but it was Congress that passed it twice. When you write that wages will have to be made high enough so everyone can at least live without worry, Mrs. Mitchell, you are speaking of a job for your husband's union, not Congress. Whnt else is the union for? What kind of union is this whose members have to put in 11 or 12 hours a day and still can't show their children buf ter in 18 months? Cincinnati — that is where old Brockey Farrcll, the fifth vice president, who died in October, ran an absolute, dictatorship- over eleven teamsters' unions for 24- years by Tobin's appointment and n all that time wouldn't let the Tien hold union meetings and re 'used 19 account for millions o iollars in union money. And, final- y, when some of the boys got their lerve up and sued in court, the upshot of it all was that the issue lever was tried, the facts never were revealed, and four lawyers !ot $5,000 apiece of your money by lourt order; Money that belonged o these little Cincinnati locals, col- ected from the miserable wages of nen like Mr. Mitchell. Money that might have been spent for meat and butter for the table and dolling. And one of the lawyers who got $5,000 was Joe Padway, the Scneral counsel of the American ederation of Labor and for the canisters' international. That was a hot one on you rank nd filers, wasn't it? Yolir boys ake their lives in their hands to sue this grafting old goat and ambling house bum who was placed over those thousands of amily men, and the details never :anie out to embarrass him or the ufi who appointed him. When the settlement was announced in the royal court circular °» old King Dan's kingdom of almost one million subjects with a Vieasury of $17,000,000 the old boy w * V-' 11 you tnat y° u had becn torced to pay $5.000 to his greedy Pal, Joe Padway, djd he?

In fact it was the road trips that proved disastrous. Of the five James away from home • liope won only a pair—from Camden and Pine Bluff while losing to El Dorado, Texarkana and De- Queen. Hope started off good licking Horatio 04-0 and Smackover 20-0 .he first two games. Then came El Dorado, the first road trip and the first loss 7-0. Despite the defeat the Cats outplayed the victors rbl- ing up 140 yards' to 96 for the Wildcats. First downs were. 8 to 0 in favor of Hope. Hope returned home the follow- ng week to down Jonesboro 45 to G and the next week barely eked out a win over Nashville who was the best team to play here all year. Then came Texarkana and ,a 6 .o 14 loss, although the Razorbacks made only 38 yards from, sorini- mage to Hope's 175, Next week Hope went to Camdeh • and eked put a 14-13 dcciisipnj thanks to. the toe-, of Bobby Joe Lee. Hope returned homo Oct. 31 'to play their best game" of the» season in downing Hot Springs 28-7. Prescott fell on the home field 23 to 0. Again the Bobcats traveled and a geared up DeQueen eleven licked them 24-12. They.^carrie back for the final home 'game and took Arkadelphia-38 to 0 and' Thanksgiving Day journeyed to Pine Bluff and smothered' th'a Zebras 40 to 13, giving, them : a record of 9 wins against 3 losses. According to statistics on home games the Bobcats 'scored 233 points against 7 teams they entertained. The opposition managed only 2 points. Against the same from scrimmage to 821, an aver- 7 teams Hope gained 2069 yards age of almost 300 yards per game to the opposition's 115. The Bobcats also completed 11 of 19 passes in the home contests. The best team to appear here was Nashville with Smackover running second. Strangely enough a lineman, End Jack Ray, led the; scoring on the local field running ' up 8 touchdowns in the 7 home games: -Slit- ton, Britt and 'Huddlestpn came next with 7 touchdowns, each; Rooker made 3, and Reed, La- Grono, Miller, Garrett and Wilson made one each, for a combined total of 37 touchdowns against 3 for the opposition. Eleven extra points wre credited to Bobby Joe Lee. Despite everything the season was one of Hope's best. The most valuable .player selection should go to Buddy Sutton in the backfield and Jack Ray in the : lino. Standouts all season were Hope's two ; guards, S. A. Westbrobk and Don Dufl'ie. Denny (Carl) Smith was the big gun , at; tackle and made all-state selections' as did Ray and Button. Special. credit is also-, due Kenny Ray Reed, > Charles Crawford, Wilton Garrett, Rob- leit McCullough Tommy Brjtt, Wesley Huddleston, Roger Neal, Mitch LaGrone, Reese Miller, and Burgess .Garrett. The squad loses only 8 men and next season will count on such members as James McCargq, Jimmy D. Hammons, James 'Russell, Bobby Harris, Glen Williams, Odis Keith, Joe Martindale, Charles Wilson, Richard Brurier, Ralph Warren, Harold Higgason, Edsel Nix, Travis Reaves, Jack Taylor, W. H. Gunter, Jr., John Andres. Graduating will be: Denny Smith, Charles Crawford, Joe Rooker, Jack Ray, Robert McCullough, Bevlie Osborn,: Billy Ray Williams and Wilton Garrett. Tuesday, December 2, 1947 Yerger Contest Moved Up to Thursday Two of the state's finest Negro high school football teams will clash when the Washington High School Lions of Texarkana, Arkansas tangle with the Yerger High School Tigers of Hope, at the Hope High School stadium, Thursday night, December 4. The two elevens will be clashing to decide the championship of the Southern Region. The winner wil meet Helena, the Northern Region champion, for the State Championship on December 12. Texarkana holds a record of eight wins and one loss; Hope has a record of nine wins and one loss. In a regular scheduled game Texarkana defeated Hope by a score of 10-6. The teacher-pupil -affair will prevail in Thursday night's game hince Coach Brooks of Yerger, a native of Texarkana, will be trying to defeat his former coach, N. E. Jones. Coaches Bailey and Brooks promised to send the Tigers through their siiffest workout this afternoon. A record crowd is expected to attend the game which looms to be a thriller. The west booth and west side of the stadium will be reserved for the white visitors and the east side and north booth will be used by the negro spectators. rights? Too much was spent even by Tobin's own standards, because old Dan said in his report to the team- slers,' convention in October that "the time is coming when we may have to set up our own legal department, employ two or three brilliant lawyers by the year who will travel through the country and help our unions and local lawyers." I will give you some startling information tomorrow, Mrs. Mitchell. You people are paying a union to decelye wd exploit you. 4t »55 a week and on a butterles» and leel indebted to yovur rulers?

The Razorbacks, who have won 11 Southwest Conference championships and have finished as low as fourth only once since 1924, will unveil their 1948 edition here tomorrow night against Kansas State Teachers College of Pittsburg, Kans. And while he isn't predicting his .boys will walk off with Southwest or national crowns, even Coach Eu- fene Lambert admits. Arkansas will have a stronger team than its second-place finishers of last season. Lambert can send onto the floor a full team of lettermcn averaging a little more than six feet, five and a half inches and boasting the Southwest's top scorers of last year, co-captains Alvin (Pop) Williams, G-6, and George Kok, G-10. Williams at guard and Kok at center are certain starters. Some of the other tree-toppers however, will have to take back seats, for there are 11 boys who measure six-feet-three or more. The other guard position likely will go to Roxie Rankin, G-4. Probable opening forward are Cliff Horton, 6-3, and Gerald Hudspeth, a mere six footer. 'Al except Hudspeth, a sophomore who blossomed into a long shot artist late last season, are lettormen. Three other letter winners —Ken Kearns and Mike Schurnchyk, each G-4, and Tony Byles, another shorty at 5-11 — will be among the first line reserves. Two Southwest conference cage teams opened their seasons last night. Southern Methodist dropped 55-45 decision to Oklahoma. Texa= A. & M. defeated little Abilene Christian college, 63 to 54. Rice will lift the curtain tonight, meeting Sam Houston teachers at Huntsville, Tex. Texas will play Sam Houston Teachers at Austin Thursday and Friday nights and Baylor will open against North Texas State at Waco Dec. H and 9. Texas Christian is scheduled to play a yet unsclecled foe ;H Fort Worth Friday and Saturday nights. Porkers Accept Bid to Play in Dixie Dowl Fayetteville, Dec. 2 — (IP)— Plans for "opening up" the University of Arkansas' football attack will be shelved until after the Razorbacks' Dixie Bowl engagement with William and Mary College, at Birmingham, New Year's Day, Coach John.Barnhill said today. Almost simultaneously yesterday the Razorbacks accepted the bowl bid — their second i n as many years — and Barnhill announced he was considering a livelier offense for next year, though he indicated he would stick by the single wingbark formation. This touched off some speculation that the Razorbacks might use the Dixie Bowl tilt to experiment on a svsem for the 1948 campaign. "We'll do well to get our present system ready for William and Mnrv." Barnhill commented. "We won't have much time to practice, since we won't begin until next week and the boys will bo- given a Christmas vacation. We won't start working on our plans for next sear son until spring .practice. ' The Razorback coach said most, of his team's bowl preparedness would be conditioning and timing diills He has scheduled little lough work With one notable' exception, the Razorbacks probably will be in top physical condition for the post sea,son game. Alvin Duke, a starter who alternates at blocking back and wingback, still is bothered by a knee injury which sidelined him during the final weeks of the regular season. Barnhill said Duke may have to undergo an operation but should be ready to go by next season. The Arkansas coach said one reason for acceptance of the invitation was that the players folt tb«y had reached their peak in the late stages of the season and were anxious to play "one more game." This is especially true of the seniors, he reported, In William and Mary, Southern Conference champion, the Razorbacks will meet a team which has won nine games and lost only to North Carolina. Arkansas won all four of its non-conference games but lost four while winning one and tying one in the rough-tough Southwest Conference. The clash will bring together two of the South's finest backs — Ar kansas' Clyde (Smackover) Scott and the Indians' Jack (Flying) Clojd. Scottj rated as one of the nation's top ball carriers, is a triple-threat tailback. Cloud is a battering ram fullback. While Arkansas has, for the most cart, played conservative football for the past two seasons, it has been far from a "dull" team. Besides Scott, the Razorbacks have a fine break-away runner in Aubrey Fowler, a 9.5-second sprinter; an all-around threat in Ken Holland, who passed for two touch- clowns against Tulsa last week, and two powerful fullbacks, Leon (Muscles) Campbell and Jim Reichert. o William and Mary Has a Good Record Williamsburg, Va., Dec. 2 — (yP)— William and Mary's big Indians vyill carry a record of nine victories and only one defeat into their New Year's afternoon Dixie Bowl contest at Birmingham, Ala., against the University of Arkansas of the Southwest Conference. The Indians, champions of the Southern Conference for the second time in six years, suffered their only loss to North Carolina. On the rebound from successive defeats by Texas and Wake Forest, North Carolina won, 13-7. William and Mary's best back- Held bets against the tough Razorbacks undoubtedly will be Jack (Flying) Cloud, who stacked up 90 points during the season with his terrific line crashing from fullback; Stanley Magdziak, a triple- threat halfback, and little Tommy Korczosvski. the speedster of the Tribe backfield. Cloud, a sophomore, was all- Southern for two successive seasons. Magdziak, who threw several touchdown passes this year, booted 35 extra points. Korczpwski didn't see action with the Indians in their last seven games because of a fractured ankle, but' William and Mary Coach R. N, (Rube) McCray says the "slingshot" will be ready for Arkansas. Up front, the Indians are loaded with one of the best forward walls in the south. On the line are three All-Southern aces, end Robert Steckroth, Guard Knox Ramsey and Center Tommy Thompson. The Indians' line, boasting n pair of big, rugged tackles in Harry Caughron and Ralph Saxio, played almost flawless football the day the tribe walloped Wake Frest, 21-0, in a Southern Conference upset. McCray uses the single wing formation. He believes in power, and the Indians displayed plenty of it in rolling no victories over Davidson, the Citadel. Virginia Military Institute, State Unversity of Bowling Green. Ohio, and the University of Richmond.

SHERIFF'S HORSE E'S A '• R^- 2EVELEI3 D EMONSTR ATIONI New York, Dec. 2 -HFP>— Dumb Dan Morgan, .whose nickname is the greatest understatement of any given year and who always can find an angle favoring the underdog in any given fight, figures that J.ersey Joe Walcott will give champion Joe Louis trouble ill their title bout next Friday . . . You'll notice that Dan doesn't say Jersey Joe will win . . . Here's how he looks at it: "This feller Walcott has been the best heavyweight for the las^J two years; he hasn't been out olr shape in. two years ... No heavyweight can jab him — he wants to box and he ant-icipates punches and slips them by moving his head like this."- (By -this time 'Morgan was illustrating the moves Walcott would make) . . . "He feints 'and shifts better than Billy Conn did in his first fight With Louis. He'll worry Joe:" . . . Dan collected his thoughts a moment then continued: "Louis is easy' to hit, remember. I coached Max Schemling before, his first fight with Louis and I tolcfa him that Joe tries to jab for a round or two, then when that doesn't- work, he tires and begins to hook. That's when Schmeling hit him with a right — and I tell you nobody-can jab this Walcott." Off the Air After Penn State was chosen to play Southern Methodist in the Cotton.
