The other Browns still around are Don Larsen ( San Francisco) and, of course, Sievers. When these are gone the club may establish a Brown Hall of Fame, just to stay in action. The spirit of the club is best expressed in the words of one gently swaying member. "The St. Louis Browns will rise again," he said.
Just before the Davis Cup matches, Bob Kelleher, captain of a U.S. team that was hurting for money, acknowledged receipt of $2,200 from the Tupperware company of Orlando, Fla., a subsidiary of Rexall Drug & Chemical Co. Tupperware President Hamer Wilson had been a five-letter man in high school in Win-side, Neb. and starred as a miler for Nebraska State—all in Depression days.
"I learned then what it was not to have enough money to outfit an athletic team," Wilson explained.
When Australian newspapers reported the team's shortage of money, Wilson telephoned Justin Dart, president of Rexall, and suggested that Tupperware make a contribution. Could Dart refuse? Hardly. He had been an all-Big Ten guard at Northwestern.
