July 26—-(UP)-—Two nine pitchers, wnose greatest moments of stardom on the diamond are behind them, were keeping Cincinnati's remote pennant hopes alive today with comebacks born of courage and nurtured in disappointment. Not much is heard any more about Johnny Vandcrmeer, the double no-hit kid of 1938, nor about Bucky Walters, The National League's most valuable player in 1939. The Reds themselves seem destined to a role of obscurity despite the fact that in 'their fourth place position in- the National League, they arc a half game closer to the leading Brooklyn Dodgers than the second place Yankees are to the Red Sox in the American. But without the roar of the crowd, the big headlines .and the hero-worship that is reserved for champions, Lefty Vandermeer and aging right-hander Walters aire doing all right for themselves. Each has won six straight games, together they form a groat vine-two combination that ranks with -any pair of "money pitchers" in the league. And if the Rods could just begin to get some of those acutely scarce base hits to back up their pitcmng and strong defensive play, the team might yet make a bid for the National League ilag. Vandermeer's chief stock in trade last night as ho shut out the Braves at Boston, 1 to 0 on four hits and walked but one batter was his control. It was because he once lacked it that he was sent back to minors even after pitching those consecutive no-hitters. vVildness by Johnny Sain in the eighth, plus two fielding lapses gave the Reds their run without a hit, Bobby Adams scoring when Second Bace- man Connie Kyan threw away a double play ball.

Texas Leaguer Originates atTexarkana BY HAROLD V. RATLIFF AP Newsfeatures Dallas — The Texas League has a colorful history. It has sent many players to the majors to win everlasting fame. But no contribution ever attracted more attention than that of the term "Texas Leaguer." It was many years ago that they began calling a "Texas Leaguer" any ball hit just over second base. There are several versions why such a hit got this name. The earliest was that back before 1900 — the Texas League was organized in 1888 -*- John J. McClns- kcy, who founded the circuit, had gone to Louisville to manage its entry in the old National League. He took a flock of players along with him. They were continually' drop- ing hits over second—far enough to be out of reach of the infieldcrs yet too short for the outfielders to catch. Soon the fans would remark when one of those fellows came to bat: "Well, we'll have another Texas Leaguer." The latest version is from L. L. Lawrence of Tyler, Tex., who played bush league ball back in Hill county when! Tris.- Speaker was making his baseball start. Tcxarkana was 'in the Texas League in the early part of the century, relates Lawrence. Texarkana is a city divided by a state line — part of it is in Texas, part in Arkansas. Well, it seems the diamond was the same way. Home plate, first base and thicl base were in Arkansas; second base and the outfield were in Texas. When a player hit one over second they called it a Texas Leaguer. Anyway, the term stuck and found its way to all places where baseball is played. Records show Texarkana was in the Texas League in 1902 for a period of a little more than two months. Thus the term could have originated in that brief span. However, Texarkana got more fame out of a game played at Ennis June 15. 1902, than out of the appellation "Texas Leaguer." That was the day Corsicana beat Texarkana 51-3. There probably never has been another game in organized baseball with such a score. It was supposed to be played in Corsicana but because there was a law against Sunday baseball in that city, it was shifted to neutral Ennis. Nig ..Clark, .Corsicana catcher, slugged eight home runs in eight times at bat. His team got 53 hits all together, 21 of them homers. Texarkana gathered in nine hits, all singles except three and those were doubles'. Whether there were any "Texas Leaguers' hit- in that memorable game js not revealed. Chances are a fellow doing no better than that would have been so ashamed he'd have gone off down the creek somewhere to hide. We, the Women BY RUTH MILLETT NEA Staff Writer Relax, ladies. You can quit tearing your hair over how to get enough sugar for some kind of fattening pastry to serve at your next club meeting. You can even clis band the refreshment committee and give the members more important jobs. Mrs. Truman entertained 1,000 guests at a garden party the other day, and she announced ahead of time that no refreshments would be served, because of the world food shortage. If the First Lady can get by with it, so can you. It's really .a won- dc-rful idea — from everybody's standpoint. The food - fixers won't have to spend half a day baking fancy cupcakes, or twisting bread into weird sandwich shapes. There won't be any dish-washing afterward. The plumper guests won't have a struggle with their consciences over whether or not to have a second serving. The hostess's family will got a real dinner, instead of having to cat party leftovers. And everybody can feel noble about the whole thing. Food will thus be saved without hardship,and if every women's organization in the country would pass a "no refreshments' rule, the amount of food saved would really be worthwhile. It's Too Easy, Perhaps The whole trouble is, it's almost too simple and uncomplicated a way to save food to interest women's clubs. Women like to do their good deeds the hard way. That is why they bake cakes, instead of donating money, for church suppers, ll is why they spend hours making articles lor a bazaar, and then buy them from each other. Cutting out refreshments miiy be top simple to seem noble. If so, it will never prove a popular way of saving food, even though it has the sanction »l America 's KirM Lady.

I echmcol, Literary Field London, July 25 —(UPI—Soviet Writer llya Ehrenbert, who recently visited the Unied States, renewed his criticism today of racia inctuiality in the United States, but said that Russia could "learn i lot" from American achievement in technical and literary fields. Radio Moscow broadcast Ehrcn- berg's reply to recent criticisms of Walter Lippman, America! writer. "It does not help Negroes that Lippman recognizes Senator Bilbo as an evil or that Lippman should write articles in New York and Bilbo and his like oppress Negroes in Mississippi," Ehrenberg said. "Lippman says that when we Soviet people are capable of knowing America's value and of criti- cising our own shortcomings then will he agree to count us as real people," he said. Ehrunberg said Hint Russians "have never denied America's qualities. We have neither hidden either from ourselves or from others our shortcomings. "In America, for instance," he said, "it is easier to phone i'rom New York to San Francisco ihan from Moscow to Tula (120 miles from Moscow i." Ehrenberg said that Lippman "will say 1 conlinc myself to technical achievements. No, I have already written that to American literature. "I think we can learn a !«'. from American writers and American architects." lie said, "and, even in spite of the shattering level of its last productions, from American cinema producers. "We know our shortcomings. We denounce bureaucratism and sometimes rudenes sand technical backwardness. But vve do not denounce them .Hist Tor the sake of denunciation b u t in order to achieve improvement. "But we nave no slave owners and the question is not whether Lippman regards us as people but whether we recognize as people racial discriminators and slave owners.

One may be very correct and M-opcr as to one's words, yet fall "ar short of being a true Cristian. The true Christian is one who denies himself, and who takes up his cross and follows Jesus. What docs it moan to deny oneself'.' In a sense the self, the ego, is a man's real being. He may ;>wn nothing else, but ho has himself. Perhaps that is what Jesus meant. More is the center of man's decision: he may have nothing else to give, but he can give himself to God. Instead of living just for himself and for his selfish ends and satisfactions, he can seek God's guidance. He can love and serve his fellowmen, as God loves them and as Jesus served them in His earthly ministry. I think this is what Jesus meam' by denying onself; and in th; v denial the solf becomes not less, but greater. It is a losing of life that one may find it. The denial of self, iii (he Christian sense, is no groveling 'abasement.

There is a profanity of the soul within the heart, a lack of profanity within the heart, a lack of reverence for the name of God that bespeaks u lack of reverence for Goct Himself. In some, profanity is n habit, growing out of an original use of swearing in an effort to be smart or emphatic. In many cases, profanity is resorted to, in the hope of giving strength to their speech, by those who arc weak and feeble in expression. II is evidence of poverty of mind and soul, rather than of any strength. And this explains why the profanity that is expected lo give savor and strength lo words really becomes impotent and commonplace. Now and then' men get a rcpiii talion for lurid profanity.

Sun Yat- s'jjl lo bicak a Iwo years' political silence and address ;m appeal to the American people. It is a bravo, heartfelt message. It is also confusing, and its underlying motives doty accurate identification. Mine. Sun, widow of the Chinese rep-,,.lic's founder, i.s also the sis- ler-in-law of Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek. She is reputedly a woman of strung character and liberal convictions who disagrees strongly with Chiang and his methods. But it is impossible to say how much oWhis objection is based on idealism, and how much on the So ng family's private quarrels." Obviously, Mine. Sun has a deep and sympathetic understanding of China. That does not mean, however, that she understands America. And when she says thai Chinese and American "reactionaries" promote Chii a's civil strife in the hope of starti.ig a war between the United Stales and Russia, Ihcrc is good reason for saying "Poppycock!" JVIme. g un surely is confusing );4jsiblc result with intention. America':: foreign policy is not so confused, stupid or bloodthirsty as lo plan such a catastrophe. The men who shape that policy arc nol so weak or so mad as to permit such a plan to be formulated and carried out under their noses. Yet our Chinese policy is of enough apparent stupidity and confusion to make Mine. Sun's assumption forgivable. Officially, our efforts arc directed toward a united and representative Chinese )government. General Marshall has \IJjrkod heroically for many discouraging months to, bring those .cflorls to a successful eorfftfiS'lon. , • At the same time, it is also our national policy to arm, train and support the Nationalist army. While we have urged a compromise we have also .strengthened Chiang's fojccs lo a point whore Ihe Generalissimo now seems lo feel himself strong enough for a successful showdown. Only now is Washington reported lo .be considering an arms embargo ii*tho hope of averting full-scale c^oil war in China! Our armed aid to Chiang was explained as necessary in helping deport the defeated Japanese. When that was accomplished, il was excused on the wartime assumption that Chiang's government "•MS representative and democratic. But Iho weight oi evidence presented by American writers of all political complexions who have boon in China is that the Chiang government has many of the ob- .jo.cliuiiablo features of dictatorship, .jicli as repression of personal liberties, liquidation of opposition, and complete identification of the govenmenl with the ruling party. Likewise, the consensus of American writers i.s that the Chinese Communists long since drifted far Irom the Kremlin, and that their progiam emphasizes free speech, irco elections, lower land rents, more ownership ui land, and local self-government. In all this confusion il docs ?rn clear that our present con- sting policy can got both China 'I us into serious (rouble. II can .squander the independence of China, which wo helped buy at such great cost. And it can further ombai'iass our relations with Russia, whom wo righteously reprove for interference and undue influence in ulher people's affairs. tgr55oAS** V Jr- > •»2?

A turnout of 1,1)00.'"'3 was forecast and a heavy Negro vote was predicted. The race for governor was by far the most bitterly contested, the few issues obscured by a strong movement among some other candidates to "slop" Dr. Homer P.

Moscow Denies Prescott Club Statement by Gets Kiwanis Charter London, July 21 —(/]')—The Moscow radio presented what it termed a "sufficiently convincing denial" Jasl night of a statement by President Truman that the United Stales — although it had "royally" entertained guests :.'rom Russia — had been unable to get American visitors tiavel rights anywhere in 1hc Soviet Union. " >: x x Facts testify," said the broadcast, quoting a Tass report, "thai representatives of American science and culture, as well as of other countries, were and arc given uill and many-sided opportunities of acquainting 'themselves with the lile of the Soviet Union and with questions of ihe cultural and economic slate system of the U.S.S.R. they arc interested in. "These facts speak .{or themselves, being a sufficiently convincing denial of the above-mentioned allegations made by Mr. Truman," the broadcast said. The comment by the Soviet news agency was in response to a statement made by President Truman in a letter to Sen.

The Hope, Arkansas Ki- wanians, being the organizers of the club, led the list of those attending outside the Prescotl club with 25. The meeting had many highlights and it would be difficult to place any one event above the otncr. ,1. A. Colo, President of the local club, ably assisted by Ll. Governor of Division 7 Loo Ray, acted as loastmaster. Two musical numbers wore given by Miss Vivian Moore and Mrs. Lena Johnson, both of Prescotl. The Prescott club is fortunate in having many capable leaders among them as well as arlists available in the locality to add interest and enjoyment to their club life. In addition lo the above highlights the roll call of all the clubs was made by Ll. Governor Leo Ray. The past District Governor, Bob Rhinehart from Pino Bluff, presented club frifts from Pine Bluff, Li I tic Rock, El Dorado and Mope clubs. Bob made some very timely remarks in connection with those presentations. The address given in acceptance of these gifts was made bv Frank Turbcrville of the local club. Then came the presentation of an award to Hope, the sponsoring club, by District Secretary, W. D. Du Bail. Secretary Du Bail also presented the local club's secretary with the secretary's kit. Another highlight of the evening was the principal address by our own District Governor, George Kirk, using as his theme "Build for Pence, Unity, and Opportunity." Governor George used the subject. "II is Time lo Build." It goes without question that this talk was one of the most outstanding presentations one would likely hoar especially for an occasion 'of this kind. It was inspirational, informative and challenging to everyone present. After this fine address Governor George presented the now club with its charter. On behalf of the Prescott club President J. A. Colo accepted the char- tor with remarks of appreciation to everyone who had to do with the nrgani/.rilinn and chartering as well as loyalty to the principles for which Kiwanis stands. This club was organized with SO members which i.s a vcrv good start for any one club. The officers of this club are as folllows: J. A. C-ilc, president: L. J. Bryson, first vice-president; Jesse Porter, second vice-president; Gus McCaskill, .secretary: R. T. Muri av, treasurer. The program was dismissed by a olosin.'! song and benediction bv Hev.

LOUGHRAN Chicago, July 27 — (UP;— The parents of 17-year-old William Hoi- rens were convinced at last today that their son had committed three brutal slayings, but they vowed to "stand by him." They had refused to believe until they heard from his own lips how the 3011 they thought of as an active, normal boy, engrossed in his religion and studies, an reality had boon loading a life of crime for years. Sttuined beyond belief, Mr. and Mrs. George Heirens listened speechlessly late yesterday as their son recited in detail how he kidnaped and killed six-year-old Suzanne Dcgnan, knifed to death former Wave Francos Brown and fatally stabbed Mrs. Josephine Ross, a widow. These things they knew he was supposed to have admitted before. But they had not heard the admissions and nad clung to the belief that somehow, it was all a mistake. Yesterday, sittina with their son and attorneys in the quiet of the Cook county jail chapel, they heard what they had hoped against hope would nol be true. They left the chapel red-eyed and nearly paralyzed. AUerwards, regaining their composure at h:nro, the cider Hcircns told nis wife: "He's s-till our son, and we'll stand by him." "Yes." the mother replied, "and we hope and pray thai God will take care of him." While nis attorneys listened and his parents sal .as if drugged, young Hoirens described innumerable assaults and burglaries he had committed, concluding finally with the throe killings, all within the spaeo of seven months. They listened but were BO stunned, it. was learned, that there was scarcely a sign that they heard. Al times during the two-hour recital, tears welled from the eyes of Margaret Hcircns, the mother. The lather, unable to .speak, dabbed repeatedly at his eyes with a handkerchief. Although in March wo thought it was nol possible lo prevent famine, there is now no ma:;:; starvation on earth. — Herbe.-t i louver, chairman Emergency Famine j Relief Board.

Some of the principal figures who played leading roles in the fabulous Illinois syndicate assert°K y .^ e J inked 1 P a "ighiv Profitable brokerage business," whereby firms outside the empire were promised lucrative government contracts in exchange for iat lees. In some instances, according to- reports under committee scrutiny contractors paid "influence" fees— but never received any government contracts. Although no names were disclosed, one reliable source said, 'H is as if some of the same cast of characters had moved from one stage to another." New York's swank hotel Pierre —scene of Murray .W.

Meade D., N. Y., told reporters the committee considers the main Garsson case "far from closed." Sometime today, he said, the committee may unveil the list of individuals whose income tax returns it intends to scrutinize under special presidential authority. Mead indicated the list will include the name of Rep.
