Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - July 14, 1952, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Doily Newspaper Edited for th CITY GLOBEGAZETTE THI NtWSFAPIR THAT MAKES All NORTH IOWANS NEIGHiOHS VOL LVIII Associated Preu and Uulud Press Full Lease Wires Five Cents Copy MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY J HOME EDITION This Taper CnuslsU ot Two 2W One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL Managing Editor Its Too Hot For Deep Stuff JF its as sultry where these words are being heard as it is here Where theyre being spoken Im quite sure you and I will be in agreement on at least one funda mental consideration namely its no time to be placing any inordi nate strain on the thought pro cesses Another way of saying Lets take it easy Thats why in this quarter hour you are going to be exposed to the sort light and airy thing that so often goes to make up my daily personal newspaper column As a matter of fact thats the source of some of the items Ill be passing And I think Ill start with a couple of baseball recollections one rather recent and one last February when I was waiting for my B29 plane to bring me home from Europe This was at the fa mous RheinMain airport near Frankfurt which had figured so largely in the Berlin airlift Bueball Is Their Line It was a pleasant surprise for me to spot a friend of long stand ing Coach Otto Vogei of the Uni versity of Iowaonce a star base ball player at the University of Illinois later on the roster of the Chicago Cubs But for a quarter of a century or so he has been a suc cessful baseball mentor at Iowa City With him was a celebrity of other days Jack Coombs baseball coach at Duke University Durham North Car The foremost claim to fame by Coombs is that in five World Series starts for Connie Mack back in the period between 1909 and 1915 he never lost a game A teammate of Chief Bender Coombs lifetime record in the majors was 158 games won against 111 lost He hit tops in 1910 with a record of 31 won and 9 lost What wouldnt a modern day major league manager give for such a durable twirler as JackCoombs Still Fit While I didnt question lijm on the weretalking about other and more interesting things would guess that Coombs is now in his middle 60s Hed just about have to be His hair is gray hes done a good job of pre serving it All in all he looksex tremely fit for one who was setting the American League on fire more than 40 years ago A fact I didnt learn about Jack Coombs until I was back at my desk is that he is a native of Iowa He was born at a small town named Legrand near Marshall town in about the center of the state Why he remained quiet on such an important subject in our impromptu meeting in Germany is something Ill never understand Both Vogel and Coombs were in Germany on a coaching assignment among our American troops for the Department of Defense Base ball is being introduced into con tinental Europe discovered Inimitable in a bit way I Al Schacht t WILL HELP TKE IN These of Gen Dwight

PITTSBURGH MB spokesman for the CIO United Steel workers reported Monday striking USW leaders regard the steel industrys new peace offer as unsatisfactory Company executives tossed the 43day old walkout into the unions lap over the weekend by saying they had made suggestions for ending t h work stoppage and were wait ing for the unions answer No formal answer has beenforth coming But aunion source de clared I think its obvious what our re action The union declined to confirm reports Murray is debating sum moning his committee here about Thursday or Friday to make the formal decision against accepting the undisclosed company offers The latest negotiations hit a snag after industry reportedly proposed a watereddown version of the union shop membership compulsory and other union undis closed suggestions for ending the defenseeconomy crippling strike An industry statement said Those suggestjons are still un der consideration by the union There are no definite arrange ments for further meetings Fruitless Meeting Top steel executives left this With a different mis another baseball star of another day who has achieved an even greater fame in another field My reference is to that inimitable baseball clown A Schnchl He was in Europe visiting all the sizable concentrations of American troops as ati entertainer Vogel and Coombs were waiting to start their return trip lo Amer ica but Schacht was riding the plane only to Paris where he was to be picked up at Orly Field and taken to an engagement that Sun day night at FountainBlcau an important air force center As the four of us were standing in the waiting room the sad tid ings came to us that a motor had conked out on our plane and it would be necessary to improvise a flight for those of us who were ticketed to the United States Comfort or Speed But it wont be any plush job we were assured Youll have to be satisfied with bucket seats Because I had already over stayed my leave from by bread winning job I chose lo avail my self of the impromptu flight but Coombs and Vogel werent in that much of a hurry And I myself de cided later that the time I saved wasnt quite worth the discomforts I asked for on the huge cargo plane Our transAtlantic crossing was a bit on the rugged side Learning that Schacht was wor ried over his evening assignment my daughters and a soninlaw who had brought me out to the airport
