COLORADO 8ATUKDAY, JANUARY vf, itSl Honey Talks as Redskins Keep Ball as Coach Washington, Jan. Washington Redskins searched the wide football world over for a coach, and today they announced they finally have found their man. All this time, he has been sitting quietly down in the basement, In an office directly under President George Preston Marshall. His name: Herman Ball, past, present and now, it tuius out, fu- ture coach of the Redskins. Thus ended one of the strangest quests in football history. For shortly before the season Redskins wound up a resounding last in their division of the National Football word went out Hint Ball must go. Rumors flew like forward passes. It was Paul Bryant of Kentucky. No, it was Blair Cherry, lately of Texas. No, it was Bo McMillln, into of the Detroit Lions, j.nd so on. Marshall eventually snid that Ball wns acting as the Redskins' alb letic director, and, as such, would pick out the coach to succeed him self. Despite considerable mcrrimeul this announcement produced ii some quarters, Marshall stuck to his couversationnl guns. He said colleges have athletic directors who have to decide whether to keep on coaching or whether to hire someone else. If the colleges do it, why not the pros? Whatever the method of arriving at the decision it came up "Ball." The 40-year-old quiet-spoken Bal held only one head coaching job be fore he became boss of tho Reii skins: Ho used to be the conch at a Cumberland, Md., bin!

Caravan Crossroads the Hed Army withdrew from Iran in 1946 after a United Nations showdown, a narrow bridge of free nations was left from the Mediterranean to India: Greece, Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan. Buckling this belt is Iran, its vast mountain-rimmed 'plateau forming a 450-mile-wide causeway separat- ing the Caspian Sea and the Per- sian Gulf. Here, in the land of Omar Khayyam and the Peacock Throne ancient Persia was crossed by thf great silk routes in the days ol caravan travel. Marco Polo came this way on his adventurous jour ney to the Indies. Altho tbe the steamship and tbe Suez Canal eclipsed Iran's overland trade routes, its strategic military postilion never altered. Cyrus and Darius, Xerxes and Alexander the Great fought through its mountains Hitler and Hirobito dreamed closing the pincers their-armies under Iran's burning sun, linking the Axis and isolating Africa.
