WASHINGTON. Oct. 5 (AP)
President Roosevelt, serving in
the divided role of rooting for
two -home teams, led capital of
ficialdom to the baseball park to
day to bring luck to the Ameri
can league champions.
The president watched the en
tire game from a flag draped box
near the Washington bench.
He applauded both teams often
and seemed to enjoy the play even
more than some of the members
of his cabinet and White House
staff who were Sitting nearby.
Arriving a few minutes late la
a light rain, the president was
greeted with a roar of cheering
from the stands as the band play
ed "Hail to the Chief."
No sooner had he taken his seat
than the sun began to shine
"The' president brought the
sun," commented a member of his
Handed a new ball of the snap
py American league variety the
president rubbed it a few times
and, with a smile, shouted to the
group of Washington players that
had gathered to grab the mem
to: "Are you ready are you ready
let her go."
The ball sailed - over a dozen
heads about 30 feet into the hand
of Heinle Msnoih, Washington
let tfielder, who salted the souvenir
away In his pocket.
The president then settled back
comfortably to watch the game,
smoking several cigarettes from
a yellow holder.
He laughed heartily w h e n a
stray pigeon settled down In the
infield in the sixth Inning. It re
mained there and elsewhere on
the field for the rest of the game.
In the president's Immediate
party were Stephen T. Early, a
secretary; and Mrs. Early; Marvin
H. Mclntyre, another secretary;
Rudolph Forster, chief of the ex
ecutive staff; Commander Ross T.
Mclntlre, naval physician; Miss
Paula Tofly, of the White House
secretarial staff, and his aides,
Captain Walter Vernou and Col

"It was a g o o d game," the
president observed after arriving
back at the White House.

Baseball " lost a progressive and
fearless leader today with the
death of William L. Veeck. presi
dent of the Chicago Cubs for tlf-.
The baseball executive died in
his sleep from an almost incur
able blood disease acute leuka
emia. He was taken to a hospital
Friday. He was 56 years old.
Funeral services will be held
at his home in Hinsdale, a sub

Although shocked and sadden
ed, other officials of the Cuba de
cided that today's second game
of the city series with the White
Sox should be played, as Veeck,
before -his death had confided to
his physicians that "if anything
happens to me, I want the series
to go on."
Charley Grimm, who was ele
vated from a player to manager
of the Cubs jn August, 1932, suc
ceeding. Rogers Hornsby. was
heartbroken over Veeck's death.
Other players were similarly af
fected. "He was the fairest, squarest
fellow that, ever lived," Manager
Grimm said. "He was a true friend
to every man on the team. His
death Is a great shock to us."
Out of respect for the dead
baseball chieftain, Saturday's
game between the Sox and Cubs
was ordered postponed by Kene
saw Mountain L a n d i s, commis
sioner of baseball, so the players
may attend the funeral.
Veeck, a former baseball v writ
er, literally wrote himself Into the
job of president of the Cubs. Af
ter William Wrlgley, Jr., bought
the club in 1918, his attention was
caught by an analytical article by
Veeck, writing under the name of
"Bill Bailey." Veeck was construc

Wrigley was so impressed he call

He was named vice-president with

I Yesterday we saw a group of
boys learn a lot of f ootbaU in
one afternoon we probably
saw more knowledge soaked wp
than It had ever been our privi
lege to observe in process of
consumption before. This occa
sion was the annual Leslie Jnv
lor high-alumni game, though it
was scarcely formal game as
the coaches were right out there
in the field and toobody seemed
to be keeping time or at least
the alnmni thought so, quite vo- j
eaUy after ajrhile. '
The new edition- Leslie team
ahsorhed the knowledge and one
reason the boys acquired so much
was that they were so totally iaca
inr therein when it started. And
it was a "school of hard knocks"
In which the boys learned by being
pounded scientifically. The alumni
tam consisted mostly of last
year's outfit, graduated In a body
as so often happens with these
junior high teams. The old grade
had everything their own way ai
first; scored a touchdown in about
a minute after recoverinr their
own klckoff, and. got about three
more in what would normally have
been the first half.
Bat those green kids picked
ap knowledge iso rapidly .that
they made it tougher every min
ute for the veterans; each
touchdown came harder than
the last one, and after a little
while the 1933 boys were mak
ing a few first downs fans, it
was an inspiring view of the
creation of a football team,
right there before our eyes.
Graham Sharkey says he read
in the paper where one goiier
killed another golfer up in eastern
Oregon the other day. The story
didn't say they were golfers but,
Sharkey points out, they must
have been because it said they got
peeved over a water hole.
A Willamette sport fan was
asking us the other day to ex
plain why. Oregon Normal got
columns of publicity in the
Portland papers and. Willamette
got Inches. We didn't know ex- (
actly, bat suspected it might go
back to the time a few months
ago when most of the Portland
papers were booming Larry
Wolfe for the Oregon State

sibility that one or two sport
writers figure the Oregon State
coaching situation isn't settled
