GRIFFITH. KNEEPANTERS.
KELLER, FOOTBALL, ETC.
The death of Clark Griffith,
one of the great figures In baseball
history, brought back fond memor
ies and also a touch of sadness to
Herbert B. Taylor and members of
his famous Kneepants League of
Dunn.
On two occasions, the president
of the Washington Senators had
played host to the little Dunn knee
panters and seemed to take an un
usual amount of interest In them.
Taylor, who founded Dunn's lea
gue and whose office wall is lined
with piotures of Griffith and his
boys, observed today that, “Clark
Griffith was a grand old man. one
of the best. He was a big man—
one of the immortals of baseball
fame—but he wasn’t too big to be
nice to a bunch of little kneepant
ball players."
It was when the Dunn Knee
panters visited Washington, in 1948
that Griffith made one of his rare
public appearances to welcome the
Dunn ball players.

Lausche will be 60 years old
next month. He is a son of Immi
grant parents, a lawyer, five times
elected governor of his stats.
Lausche is a Catholic. He also is
a somewhat unpredictable politi
cian.
Only this week in New York,
Lausche referred to President Ei
senhower in terms scarcely to De
expected from a leading figure in
the Democratic Party. Speaking
before New York's Ohio Society,
Lausche said Mr. Eisenhower had
brought "unity and confidence” to
the nation. That raises a fair ques
tion.
If Mr. Eisenhower brought unity
and confidence to the nation,
whom does Lausche hold respon
sible for the previous shortage
thereof? Lausche didn't answer
that pne.
Statements In Character

probably do, mean that If Mr. El

the President will run again.
Friends of Stevenson suggest that
Lausche’s political independence
would prevent his nomination.
