LARAMIE, Wyo. Dr. Gale W.
McGee of the University of Wyo
ming history department has a sta
tistical answer to the old problem
of keeping wives of wandering
With the help of a little book
keeping he convinces Mrs. McGee
that his absences in the Wilds
have a, dollars and ce,nts value.
"Perhaps some other fishermen
whose wives are "weekend wid
ows' through the summer might
find the same system useful,"
He keeps tab of all his expenses
on fishing and hunting trips. He
also places a cash value on the
trout or game ' birds he brings
home. At the end of the year he
strikes a balance between receipts
, If the money value of the fish
- and. birds exceeds his expendi
tures, Mrs. McGee receives a bill
for the amount. This she ignores.
If the cost of" the trips exceeds
the value of the products of the
hunt, McGee has to pay his wife
the difference. She can buy a new
hat with the money if she wants.
Phi! Baker, Syracuse's ace mid'
die-distance star, needs glasses to
see where he's going.

the Dodgers at Ebbets Field and
on the road have made some point
ed comments on it.
Writes Herbert Goren in the
"It doesn't seem as if Duro
cher is much worried about the
dynamite that appears to b
stored in certain passages of his
tome. The main idea in Leo's
mind is, "how will it sell?"
Says Arch Murray in the Post:
"It has aroused a storm of critic
ism for the manner in which Duro
cher laces into such former Dod
gers as Luke Hamlin, Van Mungo,
Hoots Poffenbcrger and Bobo New
som." Writes Bill Boeder in the World
"The book has drawn so much
unfavorable criticism from read

high Brooklyn official commented:

Skippers may join the boatmen's

Boats in the Association will fly
