CONTINENTAL'S LAST CALL
Mr. Rickey and I do not agree with you as to the best method of expansion (EDITORIAL, Aug. 1), nor is the present plan (SCORECARD, Aug. 15) strictly in accordance with our thinking. However, there are always two sides to be considered, and inasmuch as the major leagues, as represented at our meeting in Chicago, believed their method was the best to continue the high caliber of major league ball, our owners have acquiesced and our opinion has become academic.
Since the major leagues are in control of the players and have the means of making a distribution of players which would solve the player difficulty, we feel it can all work out for the best.
ON AGAIN, CHAMBERLAIN!
I am hoping that Chamberlain, the Negro ballplayers, and Negroes in general will get away from this habit of seeing everything in terms of race, for actually it is the mark of a feeling of inferiority which we have no need to feel. I also wish that other well-meaning people, such as yourselves, would let each one of us stand or fall through his own merits and forget about his race and the effects thereof.
CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE
Particularly commendable, I think, is Terrell's description of soaring flight. He is very correct, both technically and esthetically. I would suspect that he is an airman in his own right. Otherwise, he would not have been so knowledgeable.
?Associate Editor Roy Terrell, a Marine Corps pilot during World War II, has a total of 3,000 hours of military and civilian flying, including some 50 hours in jets, but this was his first time in a sailplane. Terrell's comment: "It was great. But I kept reaching for the throttle."—ED.
