    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    July trades

    The "Philadelphia Courier"

    August 1st 1959

    Phils infield strengthened, catchers next?


    by Jamie Squibb

    Dan Conway, yesterday, went some way to shoring up the vulnerable short-stop and 2nd base positions in the Phils franchise with the acquisition of Tony Kubek from the Milwaukee Brewers and Leon Cardenas from the Cincinatti Reds. The latter is the younger, and , potentially, the more valuable prospect, but the Phils’ General Manager had to give up two seasoned players in third baseman Grady Hatton(37), and first baseman Earl Torgeson(35) for him

    It can be argued that both these veterans had two or three seasons of good numbers left, which is why, no doubt, the Brewers were willing to give up such a valuable commodity as Cardenas for them, and on Conway's side it can be pointed out that the Phils have considerable back-up at first and third base, whilst the rest of the infield, and particularly the catching position is very thin on the ground.

    Kubek, in fact, was a promising player who has, so far, turned out to be no more than a journeyman, with less than impressive stats.; however, at 24 years old he is still young enough to improve, and the point is that he is there should - shudder- Owen Friend or Bill Maseroski go down with injury. Another factor in that particular trade was that Dan could take the opportunity to offload some so-so pitchers , mostly from the farm team, the Culver City Cougars.

    Overall, then, the Philadelphia Phils will remain strong, but their farm team is woefully weak, and Dan Conway will need all his skills as a horse-trader to build those Cougars into a steady source of back-up for the big-league side.

    As well, come free agent time this year, Conway really should do something about covering his assetts with a top catcher or two, even if it only be for a few seasons until whatever he can glean from next year's Amateur Draft develops into valid backups for the present superstar Karl Pairre, and the solid, but aging Joe Ginsburg.

    Alistair Cooke

    August 21st 1959

    Alistair Cooke's BBC broadcast of "Letter From America" of August 22nd 1959

    Good evening. Yesterday, Hawaii became the 50th State of the Union, by decree of the Senate and the American House of Representatives. It will be the smallest of the United States, the least populous, the only one situated in Oceania, and the only State composed entirely of islands.

    Its history is not very complimentary to the American way; this country annexed those islands in the first place, around the turn of the century, from a group of white politicians and businessmen, who, in their turn, had compelled during 1898 the last monarch of the Islands Queen Lili'uokalani)to turn the whole shebang over to those would-be exploiters of the territory's riches.
    .

    Up till then, the Archipelago had been home, exclusively to brown men, and dusky maidens, but over the years, whites had infiltrated the place, and with their modern technology, and ruthless ways, and, most important of all, by sheer numbers, had gradually taken over the entire kingdom.

    Does that not remind us of other takeovers? North America from the Indian tribes by European settlers. Australasia from the aborigines by the British, Africa by various nationalities? What, one wonders, will be the colours and creeds of those who eventually take over this Western world.

    So from a wild, remote beautiful native kingdom, over the centuries Hawaii has evolved into the fiftieth star on Old Glory. It took some doing and a long long time...for decades, its fate has been linked with Alaska, which joined the U.S. Federation earlier this year; Various American governments weren’t sure if they wanted either Territory to come aboard, whilst the majority of Alaskans nor Hawaiians definitely wanted no part of the mighty U.S.A. and it took an acquisitive President McKinley to decree in 1898 that the pair should, ultimately join.

    But one thing and another intervened to abort the deal, the American- Spanish war, the Great Depression, the two world wars, and it is only in this time of grab all the land you can between America, and the Soviet Union, that the idea of statehood has been raised again. Ostensibly, one supposes that this is the present American administration's way of thanking the Hawaiian people for their contribution to the Allied cause in world war two, but, Ladies and Gentlemen, in this troubled times, how much of a boon do Hawaiians and Alaskans alike regard being an American citizen? Good night.

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    Sorry, Guys I don't know what happened with the scoreboard to this game. I must have done something wrong at home, or in transferring my work (via flashdrive to the public library, the computer terminals of which, do not permit the playing of Sports Mogul)I hope the following recap is sufficient. The Phils btw have a healthy lead (35 games)

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    Dan fumes some more

    August 1959

    A telephone call from Augusta Conway to her father, Dan Conway.

    AC: Morning, Dad.

    Dan: Gussie!...This is a nice surprise...especially the "Dad" bit...have I finally weaned you off of "Pops"? ...and why didn't you call collect, as I arranged? It's going to curtail this call on your dime.

    AC: Several reasons, Dad...first my allowance from you is a king's bounty, I can afford calls from here to infinity, second it'll be a short call, I've got a class in minutes...thirdly, I've bad news for you.

    Dan: Oh-oh.

    AC: I'm afraid I won't be starting at your Conway College in the Fall.

    Dan: I hope you're joking...what - are you dropping out, or something?

    AC: (Protesting) Dad...! you know I don't quit stuff...no, it's the weather, would you believe?...I'm acclimatized to sunny Cal, now...why suffer through those bleak Nor -Eastern winters for four years when I can get my degree down here?

    Dan: At Southern Cal, you mean?

    AC: Berkeley, Dad.

    Dad: (Aghast) Barkeley!...that's a hot bed of -of - radicalism!

    AC: Just the job for a young gal exposed to rock-ribbed conservatism all her life, wouldn't you say, Pops?...a sort of balancing act. Don't worry, I won't go Communist on you... I think.

    Dad: It's not that so much...it's the weird ideas they have...that Timothy Leary...he's some sort of Svengali, I hear.
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=timot...JISwjwOSp6jADg

    AC: Dad, I'm still your daughter...an unimpressible Conway like you...I know boolshitte when I smell it. Trust me, willya?

    Dad: Hey, Girl, none o’ that language on the phone, okay? You never know who’s tuned in …Gossip columnists, Government spooks, they’ve all got the technology. Honey, my whole idea of building Conway College was for self-startin' young girls like you. I can't let you do this, Gussie.

    AC: So, how're you gonna stop me...? Hold up my College fees?...stop my allowance? Don't you think I could work my way through college?...even if Mom didn't pick up the slack for me...which she would in a heartbeat if I asked.

    Dan: Don't do this to me, Gussie...I see so little of you as it is...not one of my best moves, lettin' you go to Culver.

    AC: Don't try to manipulate me, Dad...I know you're proud of me, but it's the pride of a trophy-hunter rather than a Dad...sort of "Look what I begat"

    Dan: That's harsh, and totally untrue, Gus...just because I don't make a big deal outa fatherhood. You and Aug and Jacy mean everything to me

    AC: But you've so much else on your plate, Dad...that's the thing...anyway, gotta go...class calls...sorry to spring this on ya , Pops, but a gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do...love ya, still...Bye.

    Dan: And don't call me Pops!

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    The New Republican Journal

    August 2nd 1959

    Nixon wins points against Kruschev

    by Alvin C Hirams

    Last night, Vice-President Nixon just about erased the memories of a nightmare tour of a supposedly friendly continent of South America, by winding -up a triumphant visit to an avowedly hostile part of Eastern Europe - Soviet Russia, no less.
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=Nixon...zNEZSojwOckKUo

    The Vice -President had already shown political chops in a heated but cordial debate with Nikita Kruschev, who, on his home turf, naturally hogged the discussion, that being his exuberant nature, but at least, he refrained from vilifying the West, merely proudly pointing out Russian superiority in the current rocket race and averring capitalist “luxuries” such as toasters, juicers, automatic dishwashers, and other everyday utensils in an American kitchen (The two protagonists were arguing in an American exhibition kitchen, at the time)- were too expensive for the American working class, Nixon pointed out, diplomatically that any American worker could buy one.

    Mr Kruschev also displayed unusual diplomacy, both in this “Kitchen debate” as the Americn media has dubbed it - and by permitting Mr Nixon, last night to broadcast on Soviet television, the merits of democracy as it was practised in the United States, criticizing the ideology of Communism , and warning against any effort to spread its influence in the U.S.A.

    The Russians claim that the broadcast was uncensored, but it is hard to believe that they don’t have secret ways of suppressing what goes out to a mass Russian audience, as distinct to what they displayed on the few television sets available to the small Western media contingent, accompanying the Vice -President, plus the full taped version now available on our own sets here in these United States.

    Whatever the effect of Mr Nixon’s tour on the Soviet public, there can be no doubt that it has made a favorable impression here at home. The V.P. showed considerable dexterity, wit , diplomacy and charm during his travels throughout the U.S.S.R., which , if he can reproduce, in his run for the Presidency next year - and I, personally have little doubt that he will run - will do him absolutely no harm at all.
    "Whate'er should be our Zodiac's star
    We all are born to make or mar.
    To each is gi'en a bag of tools
    Some mentors, and a set of rules:
    And each must carve, ere life has flown,
    A stumbling block, or a stepping-stone"
