La bled Showoff
In St. Louis
St. Louis' newspapers had a j
field day criticizing Big Don
Newcombe’s mannerism of going
to the resin bag between every
pitch. They tried to label him a
showoff for the mannerism which
has delighted the fans who root
for the big fellow each time at
Newrombe will tell you it’s no
mannerism —this calling for the
resin bag so much, for his reason
is to keep him out of court. Six
years ago, in a game against
Philly at Ebbets Field, the bat
slipped out of Newk’s hand and
hit a spectator. The woman
claimed injury to her arm and
sued for $3,500. The case has
just been settled out of court
Says Newk: “My hands per
spire more than most guys! I
have to go to the bag a lot; i
sometimes two and three times a [
When asked why others didn’t
do itK he said: "Other guys use
pine-tar on their bat handles.
But I can’t use it because it
makes my hands too sticky and
I wouldn’t be able to pitch.”
Thus the mannerism will stand.
And it plus Newcombe’s .405 hit
ting and his pitching (11-1)
make him one of the biggest
drawing cards in baseball.

$258,000 Memorial Turned
Down By Rep. Diggs
Congressman Charles C. Diggs,
Jr. (Michigan Democrat) is vig
orously protesting a bill approved
by the House Interior and Insular
Affairs Committee appropriating
$258,000.00 for the creation of a
memorial honoring the legendary
American Indian Chief, Crazy
Mr. Diggs, a member of the
committee, is opposed to the
idea of government funds being
used to construct memorials for
any particular racial or national
ity group. He feels that any of
this type should be one which
“encompasses the representation
of each group and inidcates that
all Americans of various races
have made some major contribu
tion to our culture.”
Representative Diggs made it
plain that he has the same opin
ion of a similar measure suggest
ing a memorial to Booker T.
Washington. He noted, however,
that the Washington Bill has
been ignored by the committee
for the past ten years.
The young Michigan lawmaker
insists that group commemora
tions should have “A theme based
on the cultural pluralism that has
made America great.”

al money which comes from tax
payers of all groups to memoral

the committee, “Does not con

concern with regard to problems
facing all minority groups, he
said, has been well established.
Diggs pointed out that if the Con
I gres3 really wishes to memorial
ize the contributions made by
I Indians to American progress and
I culture, there are many other
ways in which the objective could
be accomplished with greater
benefit to the group.
There are several measures
now pending in Committee, he
said, such as House Bill No.

Fifteen sizzling feuds that
flared up oven the past 25 years
among Negroes in show business

He further stated that memor
ials for particular groups should
be privately financed; that only
in such case as a memorial gave
recognition to the contributions
made by all of the races forming
a part of American society and
culture would he favor its erec
tion out of government funds.
In keeping with his position,
Congressman Diggs stated that
he is preparing to introduce a
bill to set up a commission whose
purpose would be to plan the es

A few years ago, when (Cab and
his bdnd were bound for Europe,
a young trumpet player named
John Birks Gillespie, armed with
a knife, permitted his temper to
flare out of control. He chased
! Cab on deck, but fortunately the
I band leader kept out of the way
j of an angered Mr. Gillespie, bet
I ter known as Dizzy.
Back in Prohibition days, Cab j
was also main attraction in an- [
other feud with “Red” Roscoe j
Simmons. Cab challenged Red to
a fist duel when he stole Cab’s
favorite girl friend. Promoters
got word of the impending fight
I and had the pair agree to meet
j in a 3-rounder during one of the
Jweekly fights held at the 8th
Regiment Armory. News of the
fight received reams of publicity
[ and for weeks Cab trained dili
| gently, running through the park
[every morning, boxing with train
ed sparring partners and getting
proper rest. His adversary s
training fare consisted of gin,
cigarettes and little or no rest.
The night of the fight 8,000
jammed the stadium. Cab, in
perfect condition, pranced into
the ring, and Red, flabby, and
just from a speakeasy, staggered
to his corner. Betting odds
went up on the band leader.
When the bell sounded Cab dem

Red, sleepy eyed, wound up, took
aim at the on-rushing Cab and
landed a haymaker on his nose
that flattened him. Cab’s nose
spouted blood and when the flow
would not stop, the fight was
halted. Red, with one punch, was
