The Gallery looks out from six
draped windows onto the Bloom-

shingled like a little house.
Cleanliness is such a major
strongpoint that scores range in

EARL S. DRAIMEN, former
Detroiter now living in North
Hills, California, reminds us
about the wonderful poem on
Hank Greenberg, written by
Edgar A. Guest in a 1935 issue
of the Detroit News:
The Irish didn't like it when
they heard of Greenberg's fame
For they thought a good first
baseman should possess an Irish
And the Murphys and Mul-
rooneys said they never dreamed
A Jewish boy from Bronxville
out where Casey used to be.
In the early days of April not a
Dugan tipped his hat
Or prayed to see a "double"
when Hank Greenberg came to
In July the Irish wondered
where he'd ever learned to play ...
"He makes me think of Casey!"
old man Murphy dared to say;
And with 57 doubles and a
score of homers made,
The respect they had for Green-
berg was being openly
But on the Jewish New Year
when Hank Greenberg came to
And made two home runs off
Pitcher Rhodes ... they cheered-
like mad for that.
Came Yom Kippur . . . holy fast
day world wide to the Jew ...
And Hank Greenberg to his
teaching and the old tradition
Spent the day among his peo-
ple and he didn't come to play.
Said Murphy to Mulrooney
'e shall lose the game today!
We shall miss him in the in-
field and shall miss him at the
But he's true to his religion ..
and I honor him /or that!" 0
