AND THE WAR TWO phenomenal kids, two youth- WASHINGTON.--A group of farm a-ful prodigies of the sporting leaders went to the White House to world got their starts along practi- urge Roosevelt to support the Jones cally the same type of road. They bill, which would cut interest rates I might be called the Twins of Dawn, on government farm loans. And [ Their names are Bobby Feller and while they got the President's sup-!Bobby Jones. port, they also got an earful on an-I other subject--why the U. S. will~ They were almost exactly alike in this vital respect---Bobby Jones not get involved in the European started swinging a war golf club at the age The discussion began when one el of seven -- Bobby the farmers asked Roosevelt wheth- F e 11 e r s t a r t d er propaganda and the loss of for- eign markets would affect U. S. neutrality. This brought an am. phatic negative from the President. "I don't think the American people will lose their heads to the extent of being drawn into the European conflict," he said in el- feet. "It is true that the emotions of people can be quickly aroused, but reason and logic always triumph in the end. That's why our dame. cratic form of government has sur. vived so long. "Take, for example, the arms em- bargo fight. There was a lot el talk from certain elements during that controversy, that if we lifted the embargo it would drag us into the war. Well, all that talk has died down and you don't hear ii any more. There was no truth in il and it evaporated. "The same happened during the debate over extending the recipro- cal trade treaties. There was alo! of unfounded talk then, but it has all blown over unless political op. portunists inject the issue into this year's campaign." "What about the Nazi invasion at Denmark and Norway?" asked an. other of the farm visitors. "Will that endanger our neutrality?" Again Roosevelt shook his head. "As long," he replied, "as we keel: a level head, our feet on the ground and maintain a liberal government, we have nothing to worry about." Bombing Bill White. President Roosevel~ scored a neal one on his old friend William Allen White, the sage of Emporia, Kan during his off-the-record ses. sion with the newspaper edi- tors recently at the White House. Incidentally, the remark was a clue to what Roosevelt thinks is the chief dan- ger to the United States -- Nazi William Allen forces in Latin White America. The President was talking aboul the war and the quesvion of national defense, especially as it applied to the Western hen~isphere. Tc illustrate his point, he turned sud. denly to Mr. White, who was sittint in the group before him. "For instance, Bill White may think he's a lot safer m Kansas than I am up in Hyde Park, N. Y " said the President, "but he isn't." He went on to explain that i! enemy bombers were to seek oul Hyde Park they would have a long way to fly across the Atlantic. Bu~ if they wanted to bomb Bill White in Kansas, it was relatively eas) for them to fly up from Mexico where enemy air bases could be established. * * Under the Dome. One of the most inspiring sight~ in our democratic government is tc see the President of the United States address a joint session el congress. These gatherings include not only the President and mem. bars of the house and senate, bul also cabinet members, Supreme court justices, foreign diplomats, member~; of the President's family, plus social and political leaders-- all seated in the house of represen. tatives. But--some members of congress heave a ifigh of relief when these sessions are adjourned.

The main point is that each started building up and de- veloping the mus- cles needed for the big act---Jones aa a golfer--Feller as a pitcher. Grantland Bobby Jones was Rice a phenomenon at the age of 14---good enough then to travel to the final eight in the National Amateur where only inexperience stopped him. At that age he was the best golfer in the big field. From seven years on Bobby Jones only developed the muscles needed for a golf swing. There were no contradictory or outside muscles that might have come from base- ball, football or some other sport, His working muscles all belonged exclusively to golf. He never even played checkers or dominoes. Feller the Same Bob Feller followed the same , route. Starting at the age of six, Feller's sporting ac- tivity consisted of throwing a base- ball. Every muscu- lar development in his righ~ arm and back was concen- trated on this act. Against this we might take up the case of Schoolboy Rowe, the Tiger en- try. Rowe was a young ball player. But he was also aBob Feller football star, a shot- putter, a golfer, a tennis player and a basketball luminary--extremely good at each of these games. He had well-developed but conflict- ing muscles to handle, and these in time left him muscle-bound. There can be too much muscle for any smooth, flowing action. If Rowe had concentrated on baseball alone in his younger days he might have been one of the greats of all time. As it was the Tiger giant was & brilliant performer for a year or two until too many of his muscular habitats in the back and shoulders began to tie him up. Bob Feller, spoiled, fresh or swell. headed, might have been almost as great a pitcher as he is. But he would have missed by many meters the height he holds today in public favor. Especially in the favor of his mates and his opponents. If the kids of this country care to pick out someone to follow in every respect, they could make no mis, take in following the methods and manners of this Iowa farm boy, who, I am quite sure, will remain unspoiled to the last ball he throws. Lasting Qualities Bobby Jones was a star competi- tor and player from the age of 13 to 28. He had known 15 years of tournament action when he retired at his peak, or just as he was com- ing to his peak. Bobby Jones could have remained one of the great golfers today at the age of 38 if he had continued to train for tournament play. Before the attack of bursitis laid him low this spring he was still shooting hard courses from 63 to 67 on various occasions, which Is not ragged golf. Bobby could have known golf great- Bobby Jones ness for at least 25 years. The same is true of Bob Feller. The 21-year-old Van Meter sensa- tion is only getting under way. With only a fair share of luck Feller has at least 15 big years left--years dur- ing which he might easily turn out to be the same thing to baseball that Bobby Jones was to golf. In many other ways the two are alike---both were and are highly popular with their fellow players and their opponents. Both have always belonged to the upper branches of sportsmanship. A Close.Up on Feller I had breakfast with Bobby Feller in Tampa the morning of the all. star game for the Finnish fund. He was as unspoiled as any prominent athlete I have ever known. 1 noticed another leading point. For example, as Joe Cronin, boss of the Boston Red Sex, came into the dining room he came well out of his way to slap Feller on the back and say, "Hello, slug." As other vet- erans came by they'd all stop by Felle 's table with "Hello, butch"-- "Howya, ktd"--"Hello, Bob." t 1 Practical Scottie and Overall Boy Cutouts [ ]ERE are pictured two more .t new practical and decorative cutouts which we offer to you.
