It wont be Long now Unhul Columbia Parkway will be a three Lane Highway for inbound traffic in the morning and a three Lane Highway for outbound traffic in the evening. The week of nov. 16 is the target Date. The work of installing the necessary poles lights signals and signs is moving right along. All this activity has produced a Rumor that Columbia is being fixed up for the use of trolley buses. Its funny How these rumours get started. Of course there a not a word of truth in it. A a a newspapers get All sorts of requests for information and they try to answer As Many questions As they can because the queries mean that people Are Reading the paper. I suppose the sports departments get More of these inquiries than any other department arguments Over dates Champion ships records etc., seem to lend themselves to wagers that can Only be settled by an official newspaper pronouncement but All departments of a paper get their share too. A a a a couple of Days ago a Man called to ask the location of Stringtown by. He said he had made a bet with another Man that it was around Independence ky., while the other fellow insisted it was on the i Ower River Road beyond Bromley. Well according to Stephens l. Blakley the Covington attorney who is my authority on Kentucky matters they re both wrong. Steve says that As far As he knows there never really was a Stringtown by. He says it is a generic term applied to All Little towns a Strung along the however the late John or Lloyd made Pijie name famous with his Book a Stringtown on the Pike and Blakley says Lloyd was writing about Florence ky., where he was reared. A a a a there is a Little antique shop at 725 main Street Covington which Calls itself a Stringtown on the by fax a a a another recent caller wanted to know the amount of the largest Fine Ever assessed by the City of new York for delinquent traffic tickets. I did no to know the answer to that one but a few Days later i read a piece in the october Issue of readers digest on How new York has eliminated the fix on traffic tickets and this stated that one flagrant offender had been fined $4,400. A a a speaking of Magazine pieces the november Issue of Coronet reports that although citation was the greatest Money winning horse of All time $1,085,760 horse fanciers who bet on him every time he started would have done better to put their Money in a building and loan association. Citation started 45 times and won 32 races. If a person had bet $2 to win on each of his starts he would have invested $88 one of his races waa a a a Walkover in which there was no betting and his total return would have been $99.50, or a profit of $11.50. Coronet notes that the same $88 invested in a saving and loan association at 34 per cent would have yielded approximately a $13 profit i done to know How Coronet figured this yield but citations racing Span covered five years he did not race As a four year old in 1949 due to injuries and $88 at 3v6 per cent for five years without accumulated interest would yield $15.40. The moral seems to be that even when you re stringing along with the greatest Money winning horse of All time you have a better Chance in a Bank building and loan or a government Bond. <4 wednesdays birthdays Virginia Kath it Lennep Thomas e.

De sullivan9� Littie old new York something new in cheesecake hit the a Porte pages this week. Out in Missouri Mickey Mantle bared his husky right leg to the knee and was photographed indicating to Yankee scout Tom Green Wade the exact cartilage which Medicos will remove. Marlene Dietrich Ann Miller and other celebrated Leggy Femme of show business have nothing to fear from Mantle. His Bulky calf is not in the same league. But the picture arrested my attention because your reporter Hadnot seen Tom Greenwade since time series games at the Yankee stadium lean tanned and wearing a Western hat Greenwade looked like a rancher. But his shrewd baseball observations made the series come alive. A a a Greenwade had scouted Mantle years ago following him wherever he played. Head scouted Jackie Robinson in the negro leagues. A Robinson is carrying his Bat much higher now a murmured Ess Vium Greenwade eyeing Robinsons batting stance closely. A in the negro league Jackie held his Bat much lower while he was waiting for the pitch a i your reporter asked if that made any great difference. A a great Deal Quot said Greenwade patiently. A fall that a fast Ball Pitcher needs is a fraction of a second advantage Over the hitter. By the time Robinson gets that Bat Down he s sacrificed that important fraction of a second. Jackie probably does no to even realize he changed his batting position. A player develops those habits a Little at a a a listening to Greenwade was Larry Lloyd who years ago was one of the great Amateur golfers of the country he and Dan toppings late father Henry representing the Greenwich country club Defeated Vaydon and Ray when the famous British professionals toured the country. So Lloyd was tremendously interested in Green waders observations about hitting in general and specifically the position of Robinsons arms hand and Bat at the top of swing. A a a a when you re scouting a player a asked Larry a what do you study in his hitting a primarily his wrist a said Greenwade a for rather his wrist action. All great hitters meet the Ball in front of them. They do it by snapping their wrist so that the Bat passes the body and meets the Ball before it crosses the Middle of the plate. Watch Billy Martin when he comes up right we watched Martins wrist action. Sure enough the wrists lashed through the Ball and nailed it before it had reached the Middle of the plate. It was a Long drive into the left Field stands. A so that a Why scouts focus on a kids wrist a said Greenwade. A when i scouted Mickey it a obvious that he had better wrist action hitting from one Side of the plate than the other.

By John Herling Washington d. A. Nov. 3 Walter p. Reuther president of the Congress of Industrial organizations has invited Secretary of labor James p. Mitchell to address the Cio convention in Cleveland. Mitchell successor t o a a r t i n p. will accept and come before the delegates during the week of no vember 16 armed with More authority for shaping labor policy than any Juka hurl inf labor Secretary in the past 30 years. The White House is going to make every Effort to make its Union relations As close As possible. President Eisenhower and Secretary Mitchell have no intention of allowing unions to disengage themselves from Contact with the administration. Especially now since the Farmers of the country seem to have Given notice that politically the Republican Brand is not stamped on them in indelible Ink. A a a so careful cultivation of Union leaders goes on even though an influential element in the Republican administration would rather play Down than up to unions As such. This sector three minutes a Day by James Keller it was Ona of Havana a hottest Days when Jack Johnson the great negro heavyweight boxing Champion fought his championship bout in an open Arena with Jess Willard Back in 1915. A Spectator at the ringside kept needling Johnson constantly. He criticized his style his ancestry his color and finally his courage in the ring. Johnson seemed oblivious to it for a Long time but finally As the Man kept up his Stream of abuse he leaned Over the ropes Between rounds smiled and said a Man you re Down there talking. In a up Here fighting a the a it la reason that so often there have been glaring weaknesses in our government is that far too Many have stood on the sidelines and criticized it but have done nothing at All to help remedy it. Anyone at All can sit Back and find sew fault. It takes courage and Effort to get out and do one bit to Correct what is believed to be wrong. Our chief defect As citizens i that Many of a have put aside out duty. A let George do it Quot seems to be the general attitude. We think the Job of government is for anyone else but our individual selves. Let them do the work and make the sacrifice while we merely watch and criticize if we Are to have a better form of government then it is left with each and every citizen to contribute his share of Effort to see that Good government is put into effect. A you Are my friends if you do the things that i command you. John 15 14 o in fed help my to do my part to this a better world. Would rather reach Over the Union Heads to their members and to nonunion workers. But realism has a Strong clutch on some or White House labor advisors. Through labor Secretary Mitchell in the executive Branch and through senator Irving Ives on Capitol Hill Union leaders will be sought out for adv Lee and even guidance. Ives succeeds senator Taft As chairman of the Senate subcommittee on labor management relations. A a a How extensive a system of Union co operation can or will to developed and How much Union help would be accepted is another question. But there a a great Deal of nervous uncertainty in Washington. If the farm areas of the country Are kicking up their heels what s been happening in Industrial areas hence we see More administration attention paid to Union leaders. Here Are examples John l. Lewis is quietly developing into one of the most sought out of Union leaders. On International economic matters he has taken an articulate position which reflects his Long held views on foreign Trade and Protection of u. 8. Industry. The White House made Lewis Happy by anally Kaying the retention of John Forbes As director of the Bureau of mines who had been appointed by president Truman. Several months ago president Eisenhower sent up the name of Tom Lyon for the Job much to Lewis a roaring displeasure. After Lyon had disqualified himself by testimony Adverse to the Federal mine safety Law and by his retention of a pension from the Anaconda Copper co., Ike compiled with Lyon s request to withdraw his name. Firing a shot. Now Forbes stays on until retirement. Moreover Lewis will be consulted on a successor to Forbes along with Harry Moses president of the bituminous Coal operators and Secretary of Interior Mckay. In addition Lewis is to advise on membership of the Coal mine safety Board of review and on revision of the safety code itself. A air Dave Beck president of the teamsters has easy Access to the White House has already seen and advised Ike several times in connection with problems of the trucking Industry. The president has written to Beck As chairman of the Independent advisory committee on the trucking Industry which is attempting to dramatize the Industry through a truck transportation week nov. 16-22. A special u. S. Stamp celebrating 50 years of american trucking has also been authorized by the Post office department. Both Al building trades president Richard Gray and carpenters president Maurice Hutcheson visited the White House immediately after the Al convention to Register symbolically a dissenting note to Tho official Al attitude in postal receipts receipts for the Cincinnati for october of this year increased $95,728 Over the total for october 1952, it was announced monday by postmaster Hobart a.

Major pyrite sought India sees a possible new source of Sulphur in Pyrites deposits now being studied in major in the Shadad District of Bihar new Delhi reports. The geological Survey of India took Over exploratory work in the major area two years ago after a private firm had done prospecting Ifcher regard to the Eisenhower administration. Air it a Cio steelworkers president David j. Mcdonald is already on a key advisory committee for the foreign operations administration. Do not expect other Cio or Al leaders to shun White House contacts or assignments. The reason for All this activity is simple. It la not to be considered a desertion of principle by labor leaders. The fact is that Union leaders Deal isolate themselves. Neither does it follow that their con a facts with the administration mean political commitments. \ Union leaders simply do to want either political party to take them for granted. They Are also aware that their members Are not one party minded. In Short nothing a Cut and dried. You ought to watch for considerable Man Euver on National As on state and local Levels. My answer by Billy Graham i am a mph school student and am having difficulty in con lately via become interested in the Bible strictly from the objective Angle. I m not particularly religious. I enjoy everything from Sinclair Lewis to comic strips and thought id have a go with the Bible. Have you any suggestions were to Start and what version f should read m. Q. A. It is commendable that you have added the Bible to your Repertorio of Reading material. The Bible is the most ancient of All books. It has had the most profound effect upon the life of the human race of an Tother Book. It is by far the worlds Best seller every year. It has been translated into More languages than any other Book. Certainly if a person wants to keep up with the times and be up to Date intellectually and culturally he should be Well acquainted with the Bible. There Are Many places that i could suggest for you to Start in your Bible Reading. If your and Fiva psalms a Day you can read the Book of psalms through in a month. Or you May find that you would like to read a chapter in proverbs every Day. There Are 31 chapters in proverbs and that gives you one chapter a Day to read. But i would suggest that you read what is considered the easiest Book in All the Bible to understand the gospel of John. Read it five Timea before you read any other part of scripture. Then go to romans follow that with ephesians colossians and Philippian. The King James version is Standard but was written in a language that was spoken 300 years ago. Many people find it difficult to understand. I would suggest for your new testament Reading that you get a Weymouth translation or a Williams translation or better still a letters to Young churches and the gospels by j. B. Phillips. These Are All excellent Modem translations that you can Purchase at almost any Book counter. You will soon discover that the Bible has one theme. A a that there la Christ
