'JOHN BECKETT IS
KII6F0II A DAY
Modest Marine Chief Is Hero of
Game at Pasadena.
Pays Big Tribute to Ability of
Coach Hugo Bezdek.
The football heroes of the Marine
team which vanquished the Camp Lewis
aggregation on New Year’s day, gained
a lot of publicity among the sport writ
ers of the sunny south. Here is a story
from the Los Angeles Times for Janu
ary 3 telling what happened to Johnny

a day hold sway over the Castle Mary
land yesterday with everyone from the
genius who peels the potatoes to the
stoutest on the register, his most devout
slave. Even Jawn himself admitted that
it’s groat to be a football hero, while
the coterie of society rosebuds hovering
in the background seemed content mere
ly to feast their eyes upon the bluecoat
ed, brass-buttoned celebrity.
Accompanied by a humbre scribe Jawn
attempted to run the gauntlet of the
Maryland court and reach the protected
seclusion of Its bungalow. National cele
brities popped from behind arbors and
hedges to offer the embarrassed idol ei
cigars that '#-ould have plugged a fire
hydrant, pretty maidens parted bun
galow curtains to smile upon him and a
troupe of bright-eyed kiddies, represent
j ing the elan of Cudahy, ham specialists,
whooped around a corner to tell Jawn
that their daddy said the Cudahy car and
chauffeur were at his disposal.
Beckett dove into the seclusion of his
room and proved himself a real cos
mopolitan by laying aside the brighl
Ilanded gifts of his admirers and “rolling
"Yes, the gnme must have looked
good from the sidelights,” he mused ns
the smoke rings curled around the chan
delier. “If Camp Lewis had reduced her
substitute list early in the season and
specialized in developing about fifteen or
sixteen players we would have had hard
er time winning. The army subs did not
fit into the machine smoothly and we got
just the advantage we were looking for.
“Believe me, Bezdek is a wise guy
and a real sport. Perhaps nobody knows
him better than I do and I am sure
hr will be a big sensation in eastern
baseball. This talk about stolen signals
makes me laugh. Knowledge of the other
team’s numbers only serves to confuse
one in the exciVment of the gnme. I
believe, that the Oregon men on the
Camp Lewis team were really handicap
lied because they knew, or thought they
knew, some of the plays that Brown call

side of the line attacked.
“Our gnme with Camp Lewis earlier
] in the season was a much hander one
than that of yesterday. We had practic
ally no plays at that time and had to
fight harder than ever before. Since
Bexdek took charge of us we have been
welded into a read team instead of eleven

DIE FROM STM
In Poland most of the children under j
4 years of age are either dead or dying
from starvation. The old and the very
young are always the first to succumb
when a country is starving.
Through the American Red Cross it
is planned to send aid to these starving
Poles as soon as adequate guarantees
are given that the money will not cause
food or funds to be released for the
benefit of the German army now occu
Try to picture the starvation of Po
land, of Serbia or Belgium, of other
neutrals and it will not be hard for you
to make up your mind to conserve every
bit of food possible.
The Red Cross has begun a nation
wide drive for membership. This is the
only authorized agency for extending
relief to suffering humanity. You will
be given an opportunity to hold a mem
bership in this organization and play a
part in helping to care for our soldiers
and sailors and feeding the hungry of
our allies so far as it is possible for
us to do
