With the World Series claiming
the nation's attention, the baseball
season is at an end. But not the

illustrations that splendidly relate
the tale, the brother, a bit older,
and his sister. share in a love for

G tie Air

Who are the very great in
American sports? They are to be
found in numerous athletic activi-
ties and their number is legion.
There are, among them, the select
who stand out in their prowess.
From Random House come three
volumes that throw light on many
of the sports activities of recent
years and describe the accomplish-
ments of the most notable among
the great athletes.
Zander Hollander edited "Great
American Athletes of the 20th
Century" which describes the ex-
citing careers of 49 champions in
11 sports—and the extensively il-
lustrated work is replete with facts,
figures, incidents that will keep
young readers enthralled.
Jim Brosnan's "Great Rookies of
the Major Leagues," well illus-
trated, introduces the stars that
rose or are rising to glory. Tigers
are among those selected for these
Furman Bisher's "Strange But
True Baseball Stories" describes
"amusing, amazing and offbeat
moments in baseball history."
It is inevitable that Sandy
Koufax should be one of the
heroes in the list of sports not-
ables described in these books.
His no-hit wins, his numerous
strikeouts, his successes in World
Series, prior to this year's, are
part of his amazing story as told
by both Brosnaw and Hollander.
Hank Greenberg is not forgotten
and is referred to in Brosnan's
stories, but he mentions him not
as the great star in the Tiger line-
up but as the Cleveland manager.
There is more about Greenberg
in the Hollander book which goes
into more detail about some of the
Koufax has a special chapter
devoted to him in Hollander's
Noted stars are included in Hol-
lander's collection of athletes of
established fame. Among them are
Sid Luckman, who set enviable
records in football; a number of
other stars and several managers
of teams and owners of sports

The "Strange But True Baseball
Stories" are truly delightful and
the three listed books combine to
provide splendid reading for
youngsters who love athletics.

Trick or Treaters Collect
Coins for World Children

On Oct, 31, more than 3,500,000
American boys and girls in over
13,000 communities will Trick or
Treat for UNICEF, collecting life-
saving coins for the Nobel Peae-
Prize-winning United Nations Ch
dren's Fund.
The results of the world's great-
est effort by children to help chil-
dren will be the more vital as
UNICEF, which was founded just
20 years ago, still operates with a
budget equivalent to what is spent
on world armament in two hours of
one day.
While each orange and black
collection carton contains only
small coins, even after a successful
evening, each one of these coins
can accomplish a lot. A penny will
buy six large cups of milk.
A nickel provides the penicillin
to cure two children of yaws, an
ugly, crippling tropical disease.
A dime means the antibiotics to
save a young victim of trachoma
from blindness. A quarter buys the
BCG vaccine to protect 20 children
against tuberculosis.
