As a matter of
fact, J. G. Taylor Spink, with whom I was formerly associated at his office of
The Sporting News in St. Louis, should get that rating. More than 10 years ago,
Spink was Global Commissioner for the National Baseball Congress (which
cooperates with Falk in his present tournament) and made a number of trips out
of the country to get the clubs organized and interested in coming to the U.S.
for competition. He was in Japan for two weeks in 1949 and lined up the
Japanese teams that now have been coming to the U.S.
?A well-deserved pat on the back for Taylor Spink.—ED.
When Tache grew to be so beautiful, we decided to show him. This summer he completed his championship. The first and only time he was shown as a champion was at the Somerset Hills show at Far Hills, N.J. on September 7, where he was best of breed.
The next day, Sunday, he disappeared. Although I have advertised in the papers and on radio and circulated more than 1,000 notices, we have heard nothing.
ILLUSTRATED reaches so many readers all over the country. I have to be
desperate to ask if you could print his picture.
?Will anyone who sees Tache please call Gladstone, New Jersey, Peapack 8-0491.—ED.
SPORTS ILLUSTRATED is about the most relaxing recreation I find in the midst of the hustle and bustle of my profession.
