Baseball: A Proposed Remedy
For a Peculiar Problem

"Goodness-Is That The Way I Look?"




WITH THE largest crowds in the history of base-
ball expected to pack the Polo. Grounds and
Municipal Stadium for this year's World Series
clashes, it is somewhat peculiar that weak links
exist in our national pasttime.
The major leagues just finished a moderately
successful season attendance-wise with one team,
the Milwaukee Braves, soaring well past the 2,-
000,000 mark. Seven others attracted better than
1,000,000 fans and only the Philadelphia Athletics
and Washington Senators played before consist-
ently semi-empty stadiums.
However, the teams that yearly provide the tal-
ent to perform in the sixteen major league ball
parks just ended a disastrous six months from a
financial standpoint. The minor league financial
difficulties have been increasing for a few years
now, as indicated by a drop from a high of 63
minor leagues in 1949 to the present less than 40.
While the minor league flounder, aipother source
of major league talent continues to play before
half-filled pavillions and in some cases sidelines
spectators. These are the college baseball teams.
Many things have been blamed for the lack of
attendance at minor league baseball games. It
is not necessary to reiterate them here but it
suffices to say that the minor league cities have
apparently decided that major league baseball
over radio and television is more interesting than
a trip out to the local delapidated ball park.
Many suggestions have been presented but no
solution has been found for the problem and at-
tendance continues to dwindle. However, a panacea
may still be available which would not only end the
use of much baseball red ink but also provide a
shot in the arm for the collegiate sport.
The major league teams, instead of signing
their prospects to minor league contracts, could
give the young men college scholarships. This

would eliminate much minor league talent, prob-
ably eliminating most of the clubs in classifica-
tion below Class A. However, with top notch
talent participating in college diamond clashes
fans would take new interest and standing room
crowds reminiscent of the 1920's would again be
seen at the Ferry Field's of the country.
Many of the college coaches (Michigan mentor
Ray Fisher being a prime example) are outstand-
ing and could give young players coaching equal to
that found in the minors. Another obvious feature
is the college education that a player would gar-
ner simultaneously, giving him something to fall
back on in case his professional baseball aspira-
tions were not fulfilled.
After the collegiate season ended in June the
players could perform in the various city and indus-
trial leagues that operate in the summer all over
the country. These leagues could be better organ-
ized putting emphasis on attracting good managers.
By playing in these leagues the players could main-
tain their eligibility for college ball.
When they were ready or after receiving a de-
gree they could move into one of the upper minor
league clasifications or even major league ball.
This obviously is only a bare outline of a pos-
sible solution. The plan possibly possessses elements
of professionalism in amateur athletics. However
the elements are no more serious than those
present when wealthy alumni or the school itself
subsidizes a college football player. The only dif-
ference is that in this case a professional organiza-
tion would be helping a high school graduate get
a college education. That is certainly better than
having young men of college intelligence bouncing
around the bush leagues for many weary years.
Most never leave this category and at present most
have no college degrees with which to turn to the
world for new employment.

Election Issues: Vote for the Man

MUCH AGAINST his original feelings, the Presi-
dent has let the election be fought not on the
record of the Congressmen who are up this year
but on the record of the Administration, which
in fact is not running at all this year. By a fine
bit of political sleight-of-hand the political bosses
have covered up the question of whether the coun-
try has confidence in the Congress. They have done
this by raising the question of whethe'r it has con-
fidence in President Eisenhower. Thus in many a
constituency men who have done their best to
obstruct the President are asking for votes on the
ground that unless they are elected the President
will have been repudiated.
ONE WONDERS how much the voters are affect-
ed by general appeals like that of the Republicans
to support Eisenhower or that of the Democrats to
repudiate the Republican record. The question quite
evidently does not arise at all for the large mess of
citizens who vote the regular ticket on one side
or the other. But it does arise in the case of the
independents, those who switch between parties and
hold the balance of power to decide the outcome.
For them the general appeal to make the election
a national referendum on the Administration is
obviously not enough to enable them to cast an
intelligent vote. For them there is another ques-
tion which is more immediate and more concrete
and perhaps more important than that of ap-
proving or disapproving the Eisenhower admin
It is the question of electing better or worse
men to the Senate and to the House. For the good
citizen trying to cast his vote effectively the
question of the comparative fitness of the can-
didates ought, it seems to me, to over-ride the
general question of confidence in the Adminis-
tration. For it Is one of the great facts of our
public life that the Congress of the United States
is today short of men of ability and high purpose
and much too long on blatherskites. Wherever the
independent voter can find a chance to elect
Current Movies
At Architecture Auditorium
THIS 1951 science-fiction film bares a close re-
semblance to some dozen other recent films
about interplanetary shenanigans. However, unlike
many of the others, it is a fairly decent sort of en-
tertainment with even a little food for thought. If
it is preposterous-well, that is to be expected; and
if it occasionally becomes a little too Hollywoodian
-this also is no more disturbing than usual.
In a perhaps overly obvious, and apparent man-
ner, the film makes a plea for world peace. Some
of the scenes ridiculing man's inability to get along
with his fellow creatures are excellent, even if they
often take the form of an extended diatribe. The
shots of Washington in panic and the trick pho-
tography are brilliant bits of technical work. And
what is most important, the film has a pulsating ex-
citement that holds the viewer's atte1tion.
The story relates how Klaatu (Michael Rennie),
a visitor from an unnamed planet, makes a fy-
ing-saucer landing in the heart of Washington.
He looks exactly like an Earthling and speaks
with a soft British accent. This personable, friend-
ly chap has come to warn Earth to be good-or
els! When nobody pays him any attention, Klaatu
gets rather aggrevated and threatens to turn loose

men of brains and character, he should put that
choice ahead of whether it helps or hinders one
party or the other to control the machinery of
the next Congress.
, * , s
INDEPENDENT voters who take this line would
do well, I would add, to favor Republicans when-
ever the personal qualifications are more or less
equal. For the Republican party is desperately in
need of the infusion of enlightened men to over-
come the preponderance on the Senate of the old
reactionaries. Enlightened Republicans in-the Sen-
ate are a minority and most of the time they are
fighting a defensive and protective action against
their own party. The country needs two moderate
parties. But as long as the Republican Old Guard
have the power that they now exercise, the Repub-
lican party cannot do justice to its ideas or to its
By this standard it was desirable to re-elect
Sen. Margaret Smith in Maine, though her Dem-
ocratic opponent was an enlightened and worthy
man. By the same standard the balance in Ken-
tucky should be in favor of Sen. John Sherman
Cooper even against the beloved and venerable
Veep. I would include Mr. Case of New Jersey,
Sen. Saltonstall of Massachusetts and Sen. Fer-
guson of Michigan in the list of Republicans who
ought to be elected on the ground that they
strengthen the Republican party.
On the other side, I do not see how a con-
scientious independent can fail to favor Sen.
Douglas of Illinois against his meager opponent
or Sen. Humphrey of Minnesota against his, or
Sen. Anderson of New Mexico or former Sen.
O'Hahoney in Wyoming.
I might add that I do not see how an inde-
pendent concerned with the quality of the Senate
and its place in our government could wish to re-
elect such obstructionists and diversionists as Sen.
Mundt of South Dakota, Sen. Cordon of Oregon or
Sen. Schieppel of Kansas.
* * * *
SINCE THE indications are so strong that the
Democrats will carry the House, and it may be the
Senate too, we might ask ourselves what is at stake
if this should happen. When a party controls Con-
gress, what power does it have that it does not
have when it loses control?
There are essentially two powers at stake. One
is the power of the committee chairmen to deter-
mine what, whether, when bills should be put to
a vote. The other power is a comparatively new
one, certainly in its highly developed contempor-
ary form. It is the so-called power of investiga-
tion, which is in fact a power not only to investi-
gate but to put on trial and to punish. The'pow-
er of investigation has become the great instru-
ment of political warfare and bears many re-
semblances to the revolutionary tribunals which
appear in time of great crises. The control of
these tribunals is probably-on a realistic ap-
praisal-the crux of the contest for the control of
These tribunals are a morbid development of
our institutions, and contrary to their spirit and
their genius. For the investigating power of Con-
gress, as now develops, invades the functions of
the Executive and of the Judicial branches of the
government. But the facts are the facts, and the
control of this dangerous power is at stake in the
Congressional elections.
The legislative power is also, of course, in some
measure at stake, but not in anything like the
degree that the President is permitting his speak-
ers to make it appear. The record shows that
the Republican control of Congress did not mean
Republican support of the Eisenhower legislation.
Except on the tax revision bill, where the Party
lines were clearly drawn, no important legisla-
tion was passed without serious Republican de-
