And there, my friends, you have the key to he true nature of VVeslbrook Pcg- er, the man. He used to have a dog or rather everal dogs but usually only one at a time but last year it was a canary called George Spelvin. Spelvin was a conventional canary until, the trip lo Arizona when he conductor, pulling oat of Grand Central, looked up over his glasses and cracked down with a glare on his little .canary. He said, "You understarijd, now, if thai bird raises any disturbance, off he goes." With the atom bomb and Pales- ,ine and thc iron curtain and starvation and woe all over he was going to pull the cord out in the country up around Utica maybe, in he dead of winter, and throw off one canary for disoiderly conduct. Spelvin didn't sing a note that nignt or all next day. After two weeks went by and no singing he, Pcgler, • meaning me, I wrote to ;he warden of a big prison where ;hey have a fpll&w who has been almost 35 years t ln solitary for murder, who is' nutty as a nougat out was allowed, to breed canaries until a few year,s ago when he got fresh again. -When he got fresh again, they nonchalantly took his owl away arid he never will see another bird as Jong as he lives. That Shouldn't be long, though, for he has been away, as they say, ever since 1913. Hope Star Star of Hope 1899; Presi 1927, Consolidated January IB, 1929 iem, now.

Fresno, (Calif) State was the nation's minor college forward passing offense leader, while little St. Lawrence of Canton, N. Y, erected the best team passing among the small schools. defense He is still a great'authority on the diseases of! canaries and is even a canary psychiatrist of soils, so the warden put a.'hypothetical case to him arid he wrote his recommendations.

Nearly all of yesterday's snappy workout was devoted lo aerial work, and more of Ihe same was expected loday. Clyde Scoll, Aubrey Fowler, Kcr Holland and Gordon Long have been alternating in throwing forwards for the Razorbacks, who have depended mainly on a power ful ground altack and have usec aerials sparingly for Ihe lasl Iwo years.

Obviously recalling the statemen of Arkansas' John Lj Barnhill Ilia his Raborbacks would throw a lo of passes at the Indians, McCraj placed emphasis on pass defense.

McCray said he was well pleasec wilh Ihe Indians' performance yesterday. "My boys are in fin spirits,'" he said. "We'll be in gooi shape Thursday and ready for the game."

Cards Reign as Pro Grid Loop Champs Chicago, Dec. 29 — (/P)—The Chicago Cardinals today reigned as Ihe Nation Football League champions for the second time in the professional circuit's 28-year history and they owed it all to a "fast break" thai would put basketball to shame. In fact, yeslerday's league championship game al cemenly-like Comiskey Park was exclusively a "gym shoe" romp in which the Cardinals outlasted the Philadelphia Eagles, 28-21, before a shivering throng of 30,759. Completely reversing the traditional form of the pass-minded professional foolballers, Ihe Cardinals struck for all four of their touchdowns on two sensalional gallops each by Charley Trippi, former Georgia All-America, and ex-Nolre Darner Elmer Angsman. Trippi streaked 44 yards on a quick-opening play in Ihe firsl period. Angsman exploded 70 yards inlo pay-dirt on a similar play in the second quarter. Trippi rambled 73 yards with a punt for a third period touchdown. And Angsman zoomed 70 yards again for another touchdown in the fourth quarter. That was the ball game, allhough the Eagles gamely kept within striking distan.ce with Tommy Thompson's 53 yard scoring toss to Pat McHugh in the second quarter and short touchdown smashes by Steve Van Bjren and Rtiss Craft in the third and fourth stanzas. The Cardinals took the field yesterday in sneakers. The Eagles tried to starl the game with sharply-honed regular football shoes, but after a penalty for "illegal equip, ment," quickly changed to basketball shoes and the rest of the game was a "fat-foot" affs4r.

By JAMES THRASHER More Prizes or Lower Hrices? Compelition, that half-forgotten relic ojc the buyer's mantel, is due to play a return engagement. That s the prediction ot modern Industry, which is a pretty reliable puise-taking magazine 01 industrial nanagement. In its annual forecast, .of busi- riWs prospects lor the coining year, the publication has this to say: Competition will get really rough. Manuiacturers will turn.on the heat with more advertising, contesls, premiums, demonslrators, fancier relail oullels, packages, displays and belter-trained salesmen." In another section of Ihe forecast, Ihe magazine predicls lhat the production manager's problems will be less difficult in 1948. "New equipment will be on the job, labor produclivily is rising, malerials- l.'#,v will be less erralic and management mclhods are smoother." Elsewhere, in discussing labor relations, the forecast states: "With less radicals across bargaining table, collective bargaining will be smoother." Those two paragraphs may seem to have lillle connection. But let's take a couple more items of reading matter and see what il all adds up lo. A recenl survey shows lhal many pj ispeclive aulomobile buyers are gj*ing up in despair or disgust. A ye-*)!' ago, one out of three car owners told the pollsters that they intended to turn their present auto in on a new one. This year the proportion is one out of six. .High prices and slow deliveries were the reasons given for the decline. At the same time the trend toward "turning on Ihe heal," in Ihe manner described by Modern In duslry, seems lo have slarlcd. A leasl we nolice lhat one automobile manufacturer has announced a con t&t with a six-figure payoff in cash and prizes. The total cost of that contest won't mean much to a big industry, even figuring it probably will take more than the amount of total premiums to advertise and run Ihe show. But if the Irend in compelilion is toward more ballyhoo, in and out ol! the auto industry, a lot of customers are going to be disappointed. They -are going to wonder what 1 fls become of the old-fashioned, ol'i-e-admircd practice of trying to market as good a product as one's competitor, at a lower price. Maybe it is a casualty of progress and the give-away radio quiz show. If produclivily is going up, if colleclive bargaining will be smoo Iher, and 1948- methods and man agcment more efficient, wouldn't il be nice if manufacturers gave thought to increased production and lower prices? They might entice back those discouraged would-be b- yers of cars and other products. '£That is an idealistic suggestion, Washington, Dec. 30 —, (UP) President Truman's chances election to a White House term of lis own were gravely endangered oday by Henry A. Wallace's decision to run for president next year TS a Communist-sparked, left wing candidate. Republican presidential pros pects brightened correspondingly. Political fate will bring Wallace and Mr. Truman into dramatic conflict for the third time in 1948. VIr. Truman nosed Wallace out of the vice presidential nomination in 1944 — and it proved thai he also .von the While House on that vice presidential ballot. A few months afler Mr. Truman succeeded Ihe lale Franklin D. Roosevelt, he had to- fire Wallace from the cabinet for publicly repudiating the administration's firm policy toward Russia. Wallace had been made secretary of commerce by Mr. Roosevelt as a rew.ivd for 1944 campaign services after the vice' presidency had been denied him. Last night Wallace announced his 1948 left wing presidential candidacy in Chicago. This lime he may a stunning blow on the man beat him for vice president and then kinked him out of the cab- Education of Negroes Biggest Problem of South Atlanta, Dec. 30 — (/P) — Negro education is the biggest school problem in the South, H.

Mr. Truman cannot afford; to lose the induslrial area presi'd'en- lail votes which Wallace's left wing expect to win of Mr. Tru- backers confidently away from him. A close associate man. asked for comment on Wallace's move, replied: "The president doesn't give a damn. Why should he?" Left wing strategy is to wreck he Democratic party in 1948 by ickine Mr. Truman and to spend the following years- picking up some of the main pieces for themselves. But not all of the New Deal coalition will be going along wilh Wallace. Principal unils of organized labor will oppose him. The CIO Polilical Action Commitlee said in a state- menl lhat its nolicy has been "not to support a third parly in 1948." The anti-Communist, New Deal organization known as Americans Cor Democratic Action strongly repudiated Wallace's move. The organization, backed by stand-out veterans of the late FDR's New Deal, including Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt, said there was . "overwhelming evidence that the Communists are the machine behind Ihe third party."

More than 1,500 requests for assistance in obtaining fuel have been received by the health department since the heaviest snowfal in the city's history — inches — blocked the streets on Friday.

Perhaps the least thought of race on the city ballot this year will be election commissioners. Most of the present commissioners have served a number of years and some have expressed a desire to turn the thankless job over "to somebody else." The average citizen-doesn't realize it but the commission is made up o£ a member from each ward. The responsibility of this group is to call an election and select judges^ and clerks to officiate in city elections only. The law governing election of commissioners is technical and requires a lawyer to interpret and even then they have to refer to the law book. But placing a candidate's name on the ballot from each ward requires a petition of 20 signatures from qualified voters of the ward. Election of these commissioners .attracts little interest and. usually 1 I when a man is named to the post 'he stays there until he quits as is .he case with some of the present members who want to get out.

An index figure of 162.5 was re corded for that date by the BLS, which uses average prices prevail ing in 1926 as its 100, or normal wholesale level. In May, 1920, the bureau says prices averaged 167.2 per .cent of the 1926 average. Re lating the index points to percentages, there is less than 3 per cent differences in prices oday and those existing in May 1920. At the present rate of climb, wholesale prices should topple the 1920 high about the end of Febru ary, the economists say —and keep on i going in contrast to the experience 27 years ago.
