A' victory for Chattanooga's Lookouts would have deadlocked them with the Bears for the run- nerup position. Mack McGlothin however,, held them at bay with three hits until relieved by Joe Powers ih the eighth. Chattanooga got two more hits off Powers but couldn't do any damage. Bill Hart's double in the seventh to clear the bases sewed up the game for the Bears, who gained a full gaVnc on the Pels as the latter went down before Nashville 8-1. _. In the league's other contest, Hirmingham .swamped Memphis j T °!?, a 24 " hit barrage. Atlanta and Little Rock were idle. Nashville •jumped in front of New Orleans with four runs in the first on five hits off Jesse Danna, and two errors and were never hcnded Birmingham, with Zeb Beaton piling five for six, and Joe Scheldt tour for four, scored seven runs in the third and built up the margin as the game wore on. Scheldt slapped a home run and Eaton nit a triple and a dojble as they Accounted'for most of the damage. The loss dropped Memphis to within ,a half-game of the cellar.

I think it first came into use, strictly as sport-side slang about 1900. Sport copy in those days was done almost entirely in a jargon as laborious and artificial as the stuff which today is written, but hardly ever spoken, as the language of jive. One common jive term, the commonest, I guess, is unmistakably obscene and another slang word in current use, even by women, is an abbreviation of a dirty epithet which came into being in the A.E.F. in the First World War. Our acceptance of several such expressions in the last fifteen or twenty years has been a development that might interest a student of our morals. Concurrently we developed a tolerance, even an appetite, for humor dealing with sexual depravity and for some other hilarity that is almost compulsory in musical comedies but can t even be referred to in a newspaper. We arc pretty nice Because the idolaters of moving' picture people wrote so many letters to them, practically all grat- _mous mail came to be known as fan mail. This certainly is a belit- Uing generality as to most of the spontaneous letters received by a cosmic columnist. Some of them nro beautiful expressions of idealism and principle, some reveal important information and among them consistently are scholarly arguments. The term "ham,"' meaning an actor whether on the stage, the screen or the radio, is an abbreviation of the common, slightly derisive name for actors about the turn of the century — ham-fat or ham-fatter. I have heard that it came from the fact that, before the higher development of cosmetics and make-up, the actor greased his face with the inner surface of a slab of ham or bacon rind to Jay a base for the powder and paint. Until a few years ago, "hammy was the word for a stagey or ovei dramatic play. It gave way t 'corny." I can't trace "corny" ti any origin and, like "ballyhoo which formerly was a circus tern only, and "stooge, 1 it just movec into our current speech and wril ing and is a probationer for ac ceptance into the American Ian L'uase of which Henry Mencken, o Baltimore, is the editor and prop One old baseball term that qual if'pd p<; oood Americanese i boner." This is an abbreviation o 'bonehead play." The first mai to use this form was T. A Dor gan, or Tad, the sport-page car toonist of the Hearst papsrs who had a baseball character callec Bonehead Barry, the bush league bear. We owe "bonehead" and "boner" to him. We gave very little space to spor stuff in the early 1900's by com parison with today's elaborate cov erage and, although we did have some pretty good writers, actually most of the copy was awful. The sport writers strained terribly to substitute slang for intelligible English, and so a base was not solen but pilfered or purloined or even ganvercd, which I believe was a corruption of a Jewish word, and the bases wore hassocks and pitchers were twirlers. A left-hander was and still is called a southpaw but 'portsider" is strictly news- Daperese and I never heard it used sy ballplayers. Ring Lardncr some- ,imes called a left-hander a cockeye in his fiction pieces and he jrobably beard some ballplayer ise it, because he had a fine ear or their talk.

I guess Mrs. Per- 'kins would still call a foolish person a mutt, instead of a sap or mugg, or say "Go way back and sit down' instead of "Why don't you take gas?" But I certainly would have bet on old Churchill in repartee with Roosevelt under even conditions. He would have murdered mama's boy. "Bimbo" never did have any standing in oar slang as an equivalent of mutt or sap or mugg, but it finally got some acceptance, meaning a woman of trampish character. "Mutt ."meaning a mongrel dog, is good American slang of course. "Sock" is a corruption of soak. Soak was both a verb and a noun, used in baseball and boxing copy, and was very robust in its time, although if you were to say today a hitter soaked one to right or a fighter hit another one a hard soak, people would give yoj a look. "Sock" served a term, then became obsolete, and then, just after the other war, strangely came back and has been with us ever since. "Biff" as a verb and-noun, was contemporaneous with soak but, having vanished, never came back. In the days that I am recalling, and without nostalgia, because it makes a fellow sheepish now just to remember language that w:is regarded as the last word, then dollar was called a "smacker." That passed and then, after the other war, it came back as smacker and still hangs on. "Plunk" and "simolcon 1 curled and died and so did "spondjlix, 1 inclining money generally, and "kale" and "tin." "DouHh 1 was current even then, though. We had no early equivalents for "grand,' meaning a thousand dollars, or C, meaning a hundred, which came from the prohibition underworld, but "sawbuck" and "double-saw" for ten and twenty are pretty old and the term she-note" for a two-dollar bill had t ogo, regardless, because the she- note itself became practically a museum piiece except a brief time daring the second war when Americans entering Mexico had to change their cash into two-dollar bills. Whence it came I have no idea. In the mid-west and the west it was an old custom to lay a mythical hex or jinx by tearing a little snip off the corner of a she- note and people solemnly did it much more often than they didn't. "Hex" is a relatively new word HOI.tr SrA HOPE. Tuesday, May 27, Swiss Sandwich -..—,„,. „....

Ine business administration and agricultural colleges were named specifically as among those losing faculty members. The petitions are addressed to Governor Laney and the board of trustees. Law 'School Dean Robert Leflar said 'good men" had been lost by various colleges because the university could not meet salary of- ters of other institutions. Dr. Leflar, one of the university's three temporary administrators pending formal assumption of the presidency by Dr. Lewis Webster Jones next week, said an investigation had failed to disclose anv "sHfim?" of social scientists which Dr. R. B. Melton, retiring business administration professor, recently asserted was taking place. o SPIRITS DAMPENED Baltimore, May 27 — (/P) — Came the moment supreme of a crcole banquet prepared here last night for the Wine and Food Society of Baltimore by Ednard T. Waldo president of La Societe DesGour- mets of New Orleans. The climax course was ioubilee de cerises — blackhearl cherries on vanilla ice cream, bathed .in flaming cognac. "Lights off, light up," intoned Waldo, and, as the room darkened, 50 epicures touched matches to their desserts. The brandy would not ignite. The banquet ended in a plebian blaze of electric lights. Brecheen Only HurlerThat Wins for Cards By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer Skeptics who have counted the St. Louis Cardinals out of the National League pennant race apparently did not reckon with Harry (The Cat) Brecheen. He has won five of his first seven starts, allowed only 13 runs and 47 hits in 62 innings and finished every game he started. His latest victory, a 3-1 triumph over the Chicago Cubs last night in St. Louis advanced the Redbirds to within a half game of the seventh place Cincinnati Reds. It was also the fourth win in the last five starts for the up and coming Cards. Brecheen allowed only five hits •and lost his shutout in the ninth when a walk to Phil Cavarretta, a pinch single by Clyde McCullough and a fly bv Don Johnson produced a Cub run. The largest crowd ever to see a single game — 74,747 paying customers — cheered itself horaso as •'.ivetmpcl New York Yankees continued their bombardment of Boston Hed Sox pitchers by flattening the American League'cham- pions, 9-3 in a night game.

Things haven't been very happ for MacPhail and Co. lately with ysuspensions, player unrest, and rumors of more suspensions on the way, but the clicking turnstiles that counted 74,747 fan into the Yankee stadium last night and the booming Yankee bats that routed the Red Sox, 9 to 3, moved the New Yorkers up to second place and brought joy and harmony. ; "The house that Ruth built" was jammed an hour before the game and final tallies showed that the single game record of 73,592 set at Cleveland's minicipal stadium, July 31, 1932, had been surpassed as well as the night-game mark of 71,551 set at the Yanket stadium last August 28. Joe DiMaggio, playing like the "Yankee Clipper" of pre-war days, led the assault on four Boston pitchers with a homer and two singles to drive in four runs. Third- baseman Bill Johnson matched DiMaggio's run production with- a double, a single, and an infield out. The Sox took a 3-1 lead Tn the first three innings :igamst Frank Shea, but lefty Joe Page appeared on the scene in the fourth and Held the Sox to two singles the rest of the way. His pitching insured the Yanko£ sweep—the first time that the New Yorkers have taken every game from the Sox since September, 1943. The defeat dropped the Sox to fourth place. o De Gasperi's New Government to Exclude Communists Rome, May 27 — (#>)— Premier- Designate Alcide De Gasperi started out today to form a new government excluding representation of Italy's powerful Communist party. The Christian Democratic ' leader said he would try to resolve the two-week-old Italian political crisis in one of two ways: 1—By forming a cabinet of Christian Democrats, with the addition of a few nominally independent technicians. 2—By forming a cabinet of Christian Demo.crats and representatives pf minor leftist parties. $',hjttjQ!msManLi.;p<5rnocrats pre- vrellsiy''assftHodllney wou'Id not return to their coalition with the Communists and Socialists, which collapsed twice in four months. De Gasperi said last night he had been unable to realize his aim of a government of national unity. -By Hugh S, Fullerton, Jr. Greenwood Again Leading Cotton States Loop By The Associated Press Greenwood whipped the cellarite Hot Springs Bathers again last night and took over the top spot in the Cotton Slates League. _^ After sinking the Bathers twice Sunday, Greenwood ran up a 12 to aount last night.

By JACK BELL Washington, May 26 —(&)— Senator O'Mahoney (D-Wyoi contended today that Great Britain is "using our own loans against us" in a battle for world trade centering around such products as wool and cotton. The Wyoming senator, who voted for the .$3,750.000,000 British loan when it was approved by Congress a year ago, told a reporter he regards recent action by the British Parliament as putting an end to private cotton trading. (Parliament earlier this month passed a bill banning private importation of cotton and closing the Liverpool cotton, exchange. The bill provides for a government commission to buv the fiber in bulk lots, as was done during the war. England also maintains controls over wool transactions.) "We are up against a wall of state monopolies in the sale of woo] and cotton and any international trade agreement is doomed to failure until we succeed in getting Great Britain and Russia to agree to a m-ivatc trading sys:em again," O'Mahoney declared, adding: The British are using our own loans again-t v. to finance these operations. The Russians are doing the sam.3 thing in the way of operating state mon polios." Because foreign governments, instead of individuals, do the buying and selling, O'Mahoncy said it is important that Congress give the domestic wool industry a guarantee of price support by approving a pending bill. h- of Rejects Both Leagues NC\Y Ynrk.
