Kings County looms today as the pivotal factor in the battle for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination between Attorney General John J. Bennett of Brooklyn and Senator James M. Mead of Buffalo, as Democratic National Committee Chairman Edward J. Flynn and Tammany leader Michael J. Kennedy today took the leadership in a fight to stop the Bennett bandwagon. Senator Mead's candidacy has the apparent support of President Roosevelt, and it is seen that the battle over delegates in Mr. Bennett's own district may endanger his candidacy, given the strong popularity and influence of the President in Brooklyn. But a poll of district Democratic leaders revealed today that delegates have been instructed to "back Jack Bennett to the hilt." Given that Mr. Bennett has also received the strong endorsement of State Democratic Chairman James Farley, formerly a member of the President's Cabinet, it is anticipated that the floor battle among delegates at the upcoming State Democratic Convention may prove "one of the bitterest inter-party fights in a decade."

I'm against any candidate backed by Flynn.

(Yeah, well, a hillbilly mountain feud over moonshine has nothing on those people the other day over in Newark.)

The president of the CIO today lashed out at Price Administrator Leon Henderson, accusing him of usurping the powers of the War Labor Board to fix wages. CIO chief Philip Murray charged that Henderson brought his influence to bear against a proposed wage increase for West Coast aircraft workers, and that the OPA official is also "meddling" in ongoing wage proceedings in the steel industry. The War Labor Board is presently considering a union demand for a $1 per hour wage increase for workers employed by the "Little Steel" companies. Murray warned that Henderson's involvement in the negotiations "constitutes a definite threat to the War Labor Board and to all collective bargaining." Meanwhile, it was indicated in Washington that the WLB may be prepared to recommend that Little Steel workers receive one-half of the proposed $1 per hour raise.

A visit to members of the New York State Guard at Camp Smith in Peekskill by Governor Herbert H. Lehman today raised the possibility that the men will soon be sent "to face a real enemy." Guardsmen from the 23rd Regiment of Brooklyn were among the 1450 troops in the present encampment to be greeted by the Governor, who declared that with the present danger of sabotage and coastal invasion by the enemy, the state Guard, now used for local defense purposes in place of the federalized National Guard, "has a real place in the war effort of our state and nation."

(On the other hand though, you can buy those "gasoline pills" at any candy store.)

Members of the City Council today are said to be "resentful" over Mayor LaGuardia's declaration that they must either approve an amendment to the present McCarthy Salary Increment Law or force the unpaid furloughs of all city employees, and the outright discharge of hundreds of those workers. In a special message to the Council yesterday, the Mayor stated that the city is in "no position" to pay the $1,000,000 in salary increases and back pay called for under a court decision on the present law, and argued that the court erred in applying mandatory $120 per year incremental increases to ungraded civil service employees. Councilman Walter Hart of Brooklyn expressed fury over the Mayor's statements, declaring that the Mayor himself is "perfectly familiar with the provisions" of the present law, and reminded his colleagues on the Council that the Mayor had declared them "fools" during the last election, blaming "everything that went wrong" on the Council and on newspaper editors. "I've never seen a collection of men with less gumption," added Councilman Hart, "than newspaper editors."

Eight hundred Axis nationals, many of them former inmates of internment camps, will be sent to a neutral port in Sweden today, sailing from Jersey City aboard the liner Drottingham. Tight secrecy surrounds the exact movements of the ship, and no visitors were allowed to approach the liner from the pier.

Leading candidate for the Republican gubernatorial nomination Thomas E. Dewey today endorsed the candidacy of Burton Turkus, independent Democrat, as the Republican nominee for Kings County Judge. Mr. Dewey noted Mr. Turkus's service as assistant District Attorney during the Murder-for-Money prosecutions, and called his nomination "a just reward and recognition for outstanding public service." The statement by Mr. Dewey is seen as a message to Republican regulars who have expressed reluctance to accept Mr. Turkus's presence on the GOP ticket.

A sixty-year-old Ridgewood man was fined $25 yesterday in Long Island City Court for refusing to obey an air raid warden. Appearing before Magsitrate J. R. Hockert, warden Mrs. Helen Morgan testified that the defendant, Valentine Hanold of 2022 Bleecker Street, refused to comply with her order that he take shelter during the city-wide blackout drill on July 6th. Mrs. Morgan further testified that Hanold ridiculed her with "loud and boisterous" language, causing a crowd to "hoot and jeer" at her as a result of the incident. Magistrate Hockert praised Mrs. Morgan for giving her time and effort to serve as a warden, and declared that the "hooters and jeerers" were, whether they realized it or not "applauding Hitler and Hirohito." Hanold pleaded guilty in the case, admitting that he "might have had a drink too many" before his encounter with the warden.

The thing about wage and price controls is you can't have one without the other and the need for more controls on more wages and prices will spread up and down the product and labor chains.

(The worst is yet to come.)

Leading Democrats in an effort to untangle the New York gubernatorial race are being urged to confer with President Roosevelt by supporters of Senator James M. Mead. The purpose of such a meeting, say the Mead backers, would be "in the interests of party unity." Senator Mead himself has endorsed the idea of such a conference, but proposed that only incumbent Governor Herbert H. Lehman and Democratic State Chairman James Farley participate in the conference with the President. Mr. Farley has endorsed Attorney General John Bennett for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination, and has emerged as the most prominent backer of Bennett's candidacy, but backers of Senator Mead have proposed adding other prominent Democrats to the conference in order to reduce Mr. Farley's influence over the discussion. Mr. Farley himself has suggested including the Democratic leaders of Kings and Queens Counties to the meeting, ensuring a strong representation of Bennett's support in those boroughs.

Fifty thousand Axis troops are reported to be massed in Crete, preparing to join the forces of Field Marshal Erwin Rommel in North Africa for a drive against Allied positions in the Middle East. It is reported that the Germans, in an effort to suppress knowledge of the troop positions, have imposed "repressive measures" among the Greek population, including many executions.

The German Transocean New Agency acknowledged today that a revolt occured against Nazi occupation forces in Hungary in January, and that the leaders of that uprising are now on trial. 2500 Serbs, blamed by Hungarian authorities for the revolt, "have been killed."

City police will face "no curbs on their use of guns," stated Mayor LaGuardia today following a visit to Police Headquarters. The Mayor stated that the visit was "not a social call," but denied that he had come to discuss the recent shooting by wild police fire of a man and a little girl in the Bronx. "When it is necessary for a policeman to use his gun, he should do so," stated the Mayor. "I don't want to be pinning medals on widows because some little punk decided to shoot first."

In Manhattan, two men faces charges for illegal transportation of a dead body, after a gust of wind blew away a newspaper covering the top of their pushcart, revealing a corpse. Bystander Murray Keyser, a 51-year-old World War veteran, happened to be at the corner of Delancey and Ridge streets yesterday as three men pushed the cart along, but when the wind whipped the newspaper away, Keyser intervened and seized two of the men. He took them to the Clinton Street poilice station where they were held for failing to secure the required license to transport the corpse. The third man escaped and has not been found. The body, belonging to a man of about 55, has not been identified. The two men stated that they planned to dump the body "under the bridge."

157,000 steelworkers will receive a 44 cents a day raise under the terms of a new contract negotiated by the United Steelworkers CIO and the "Little Steel" group of companies under the supervision of the War Labor Board. The wage increase will be made retroactive to last February, and it is expected that the same terms will be extended to the 450,000 employees of "Big Steel," given that the entire industry has maintained a policy of uniform wages.

Police are investigating the bizarre suicide of a 21-year-old employee of the Sperry Gyroscope Company's Garden City plant, who was found dead yesterday in his Elmhurst bedroom. According to police, Walter Robert Shook was found on the bedroom floor with a thick rope wound tightly around his neck, and his upper body suspended from the bedpost, and his hands and feet tightly bound. Investigators concurred in the belief that the death was an "ingenious suicide" noting that Shook's family stated that the had lately been "melancholy." The young man's employment at Sperry led to the investigation by police, who noted that he would have been "a natural target for Axis agents."

Hank Greenberg is not expected to return to baseball after the war. That conclusion, following his refusal to appear for the Service All Stars in Cleveland last week, seems to positively wrap up one of the great careers in the game. During a recent furlough in New York, Greenberg told a reporter that "they don't come back in baseball if they've been out more than a year," and since the slugging Tiger veteran hasn't appeared in a big-league contest since he was drafted in May of 1941, that remark would suggest that he has already made up his mind. Greenberg is presently undergoing air training in Miami, and is said to have given up any attempt at batting or fielding practice in his spare time.

("What???" explodes Joe. "Lana Toineh ELOPED?" "WHAT A S'PRISE!" adds Sally. "I ASK YA!" "Woooooooo!" summarizes Leonora.)

President Roosevelt said today that it was not likely that any decision will be made soon on the drafting of youths aged 18 and 19 for military service. The President made his remark at a press conference when questioned about a statement by Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson that the Army would probably have to call up younger single and married men. Members of the Senate and House Military Affairs Committee, meanwhile, asked an estimate of how many men will be needed to win the war, and proof that an adequate army cannot be raised within the present 20-to-45 age limits. It was agreed that 18 and 19 year olds should not be drafted unless "every other resource is exhausted." Stimson said yesterday that the United States has never won a war yet without having to call 18 and 19 year olds to service. Currently there are approximately 2,446,000 male youths in that age group.

The House Naval Affairs Committee voted unanimously today to report favorably on a bill to outlaw payment of contingent fee commissions to agents of naval contractors, after the chairman of the committee, Rep. Carl Vinson (D-Ga.) declared that the profits of such agents are "shocking the nation." Contingent fee commissions represent a fixed percentage of the value of a given contract if the agent is successful in getting the contract for his client. The Committee heard yesterday from Horace Ward, a "sales engineer" of Chevy Chase, Maryland, who admitted that he had earned a total of $430,000 in contingent fee commissions while acting as an agent for firms which obtained government business over the past eighteen months. He also acknowledged that he had entertained military officers "because he was socially inclined," and had charged off the cost of such entertainment to "sales expense." The bill under consideration will make it a criminal offense to solicit or accept such fees, punishable by six months imprisonment and/or a fine of $5000. As now drafted the prohibition applies only to Navy contracts, but it is expected to be extended to all government contracts when it reaches the floor of the House next week.

("It Happened In Flatbush." They really need to make a sequel.)

An audience of 800 persons rallied at the Hotel St. George last night to support calls for an immediate Second Front in Europe. The rally, organized by prominent Brooklyn churchmen under the sponsorship of "The Protestant" magazine heard the Rev. Dr. Moses L. Richardson of Central Congregational Church declare that "the fate of the world hangs in the balance in the next 60 days," and stressed that, while he "holds no brief for anti-religious sentiments in Russia," he greatly respects the valor of the Soviet people. "If Russia goes down," he warned, " either the war is lost or so indefinitely prolonged and costly that nothing will be left but the pieces." Radio commentator Johannes Steel reminded the audience that "Fascists everywhere are the enemy -- that goes for Vichy, Finland, Spain and Ireland." Mr. Steel fiercely attacked Irish "neutrality," and urged that efforts be made to aid the Spanish people to overthrow the Franco regime. Kenneth Leslie, editor of "The Protestant," recommended the appointment of Soviet General Semyon Timoshenko as the Supreme Military Commander of United Nations forces, due to his "familiarity with German war tactics and his ability to stand up to them." He further urged the American and British people, "who have been misinformed and literally lied to about the Soviet people for twenty years," to "catch up on their homework."

Whitehead writes in to declare that "90 percent of all Democrats" in Brooklyn favor Attorney General John Bennett as the party's nominee for Governor, and adds that "Mr. Ed Flynn cannot make any headway against Attorney General Bennett by throwing Belgian blocks at him; it will only emphasize Bennett's fine, unblemished public record."

A former Navy Yard sheet metal worker who lost both forearms in a subway accident in 1940 was brought into Brooklyn Felony Court today on an assault charge. Thirty-three-year old Harold Abair was accused of striking a welfare investigator, Mr. Edith Hockstead. Appearing before Magistrate Abner Surpless, Abair waved his stumps and shouted "I can't even dress myself, and I've been kicked around!" When asked why he hit Mrs. Hockstead, Abair declared that he is "sick of getting the runaround." Magistrate Surpless ordered him held on $500 bail, and directed that he receive medical care in the City Prison Infirmary prior to his next court appearance on July 24th,

(Not only was Leo not misquoted in the Worker piece, by sportswriter Lester Rodney, he was, in fact, even more emphatic in what he actually said. Durocher and Rodney were quite friendly -- "for a Communist," Leo once said, "you sure know your f***ing baseball" -- and he had occasionally used the Worker as a way of making provocative statements he knew the mainstream papers wouldn't touch. And this incident -- and the behind the scenes fallout from it -- will prove to be the first serious blow leading ultimately to the collapse of the baseball color line. )

You know, Mr. Rich, there are still states in 1942 where the law provides for guys like you to be chained to a post and whipped.

Well, when the Eagle had this story and said "pushcart" I was thinking more like a hot dog or vegetable wagon. A baby carriage makes it even more absurd.

Point of Order -- a girdle with lacing is usually made out of canvas or duck, maybe with Lastex inserts, but never out of pure rubber -- it would tear at the eyelets. A rubber girdle is of the step-in design. And it's generally punched with ventilation holes, so it wouldn't make a very good tube patch. C'mon Gus, DO YOUR RESEARCH.

(Shouldn't that be "There Is No Rationing OF Deliciousness?" Oh, wait, never mind, it's Loft.)

In addition to the challenging grammar, and recognizing that it is a scanned black and white photo, that picture does not look like ice-cream and it does not look like something delicious is on the plate. Loft stays in business despite its advertising.

Reader A. H. Whitehead writes in to declare that "90 percent of all Democrats" in Brooklyn favor Attorney General John Bennett as the party's nominee for Governor, and adds that "Mr. Ed Flynn cannot make any headway against Attorney General Bennett by throwing Belgian blocks at him; it will only emphasize Bennett's fine, unblemished public record."

(Ahhhhhhhh, the old "I'm tracking down the REAL culprits!" defense! Oh, Babs.)

Domestic animals went on a rampage in Brooklyn yesterday, possibly triggered by the weather, and sent four persons across the borough to hospitals. In Red Hook, 34-year-old Resta Cerello was bitten on the leg by a friend's pet monkey. In Boerum Hill, 78-year-old Anne Lockett was bitten on the right index finger while playing with her pet parrot. In Sunset Park, 31-year-old Royal Ronning was bitten on the thumb by his mother's dog. And in Flatbush, 21-year-old Dominick Bartolomeo was bitten on the left leg by his cat. All four victims were treated for their injuries and released.

(Joe and Sally shoot a sideways glance at Stella the Cat, purring contendedly under the kitchen stove and comfortable in the awareness that Leonora is in the other room, fast asleep.)

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has appealed to U. S. Attorney Francis Biddle for action in the case of prominent Negro tenor Roland Hayes, who contends that he was set upon and beaten by police in Rome, Georgia last Saturday, after a dispute with a local storekeeper. The Rome police chief denies the charges by the 55-year-old singer. The Association, meeting in Los Angeles for its annual convention, voted this week to wire Biddle demanding his intervention in the case, after a telegram of greeting from the Attorney General was read to the delegates.

Marauding Axis submarines have sunk four more United Nations merchant ships in the Western Atlantic, bringing to 399 the number of Axis and neutral vessels sunk since mid-January. The Navy also announced today the sinking of an American ship off Australia, presumably by a Japanese submarine.

A former Manual Training High School football star who went on to grid fame at Rutgers University was reported killed in action yesterday by the Navy. Lieutenant Walter Winika died in "foreign service" while serving as an aviator, but the Navy did not provide details. Lt. Winika had served in the Navy since 1938, following his graduation from Rutgers, where he had starred for three years as a right end. In 1931, while attending Manual Training, he captained the football squad and was named to the All-City Eleven.

Eddie Rucinski, one of the best ends in the National Football League, has signed with the Football Dodgers for the 1942 campaign. Rucinski starred under Bo McMillin at the University of Indiana, and made the All-Conference team his last two years of college ball. Also to join the Football Flock this season will be Wayne Goldsmith, lately a halfback with the Emporia State Teachers' College squad in Kansas, where he was reputed to be the fastest back in the great dry state.

Comic Bobby Clark of "Star and Garter" raised eyebrows recently with a recent crack. Introduced on stage as "the man who lived in Hell," Clark ad-libbed "Yeah! Brooklyn!"

"Mumps Give Her Bumps?" But what about the grinds?

Daily_News_Wed__Jul_15__1942_(2).jpg

While I certainly sympathize with these sentiments, it's also true that the Astaire-Rogers pictures were inextricably of their time -- late Depression escapism -- and that time, alas, is now past. Somehow I just don't see Astaire as a languid Army lieutenant, Rogers as a hard-charging WAAC, and Edward Everett Horton as a fussy major. Well, OK, maybe I do.

She is too good to be true and would never be believable as a fictional character. Pity the poor police booths as not one is safe while she's free.

It makes for a serviceable filler story, but I'd bet more than four people are bit every single day by domestic animals in Brooklyn in 1942.

Since we don't know the particulars of the '37 case, we can't say if the judge was too lenient then, but if he was, there's a poetic justice to this story as, too often, it's others who are the victims of too-lenient judges' decisions.

And don't even think about thinking about hoisting one in July for God's sakes. All I'm doing right now, in 2022, is figuring out how the Yankees will blow their 13 game lead.

The meta-spy move is to let him deliver the plans so that the Germans burn time, money and resources trying to build a submarine aircraft carrier - good luck with that. Also, you could then use this guy to send false information on to Germany later.

"HAH!" bellows Sally, with a roar that echoes all the way to the News building in Manhattan and knocks over the stack of back issues and messes them all out of sequence.

Joe sits quietly wondering if one "HAH!" will do it or if there is more to come. You know what would be fun, if Coscarart started dating Kilgallen - wouldn't Sally have a fun day reading that news in the paper. :) Joe sees it in the News on the way home, gets off the train, enlists and is shipped off to training without ever going home in between: the man will do fine in the army with those survival instincts.

It kills me to say it, but I think you're safe....what a humiliating weekend!

I haven't felt safe about sports since I left my teenage years. It's all worry until the season is over. When they win, I worry; when they lose, I worry; when they are ahead, I worry and when they are behind, I worry. Honestly, I don't even know why I do it.

Never mind the Bucky Dent game, the fall of the 1974 Red Sox is still a raw gaping wound to me. Seven games up on August 23rd, and I got tickets to the game against Baltimore on September 22nd, confident I'd be seeing a team on the verge of clinching, if it hadn't already done so.

The only thing I remember about that game is that it was cold, and the Sox lost, and it didn't matter, because they were mired in third place. Never again would I ever have confidence in a summer lead.

(You tell 'em, Mrs. Mangiello!!)

Men, oil, tanks, and airplanes -- among them American fighters and bombers -- are pouring into the Volga Valley today and converging on the Don River front in a bitter battle to stem the German offensive against vital lifelines of the Soviet Union. Reporter M. S. Handler of the United Press reports that planes manufactured by Boeing and Douglas are being delivered to Soviet pilots at a record pace and are taken from the ships directly into battle. "No Russian with whom I talked," reports Handler, "expressed any doubt that the enemy will be crushed at a spot selected by the Red Army.

Chinese forces battered furiously at the Japanese invaders in the south Chinese provinces of Kiangsi and Chekiang last night and by this morning pushed into the suburbs of Wenchow, important port 230 miles south of Shanghai on the sea route to Hong Kong and Singapore. A Chinese military communique announced the successful counterattack against the Chekiang Province maritime city which the Japanese wrested from the Chinese only last week. Heavy Japanese casualties were reported.

The fiscal year ending June 30th marked the busiest year in the history of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, with a total of 1471 persons convicted on charges of espionage, sabotage, Selective Service violations, and similar crimes. In the annual report of the Bureau to Attorney General Francis Biddle, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover noted that convictions in all categories of Federal crime investigated by his agents totalled 7448, with 97 percent of cases brought into court resulting in convictions. Among other notable achievements for the Bureau noted in the report is the post-Pearl Harbor roundup of enemy aliens, 1000 of whom were in custody within 24 hours of the attack. Between December 6, 1941 and June 30, 1942, a total of 9405 enemy aliens were arrested by the FBI and cooperating local law enforcement agencies, including 4746 Japanese, 3120 Germans, and 1521 Italians.

(Now why don't they make a movie about THIS?)

The Brooklyn Red Cross Blood Center has honored two Soviet sailors who added their blood to the blood of Brooklyn during last month's drive. Seaman First Class Ivan Sokoloff of the Red Navy, and merchant seaman Nikolai Zaporzketsev received official blood donor certificates and Red Cross insignia pins thanking them for their contributions. The Russians declared that their donations were "a sign of friendship and solidarity between our peoples in the fight against Fascism, and a token of appreciation for your generous relief in our country." Local chairman of the Red Cross Clifford R. Beardsley noted that the presentation marked the first time Brooklyn Red Cross certificates have been sent out of the country.

The Army's new Field Ration Package "K," designed for emergency purposes packs a full day's nutrition into a mere two pounds of compressed energy. The ration includes three special crackers called "Defense Biscuits," three Graham crackers, three cans of meat -- veal, pork, or sausage, three packets of powdered lemon drink, three packets of powdered coffee, one packet of powdered boullion, six lumps of sugar, a compressed chocolate "field ration bar", and three sticks of chewing gum.

The Eagle Editorialist warns that the "deepening crisis of 1942" demands immediate action on the matter of a Second Front. "Hitler is striving to make this the decisive summer thru the destruction of the Russian army, thus making available his military might to strike the final blow elsewhere," the EE notes. "If Russia can be kept on her feet until her old ally Winter appears upon the scene, Hitler will be desperate. If the Russians are not given aid now, the war will be prolonged years and years."

Reader John Louis McFadden recommends a solution to the current Bennett vs. Mead debate in the Democratic Party: why not "Square Deal Bob" Moses for Governor? "I am quite sure," he suggests, "that the patrons of Jacob Riis Park and Jones Beach State Park will make the endorsement unanimous."

It is not true that the Dodgers have banned reporters from their clubhouse, reports Tommy Holmes after an investigation of the rumor circulating in the out-of-town press that Manager Durocher has imposed such a bar. However, there is a Dodger blacklist, carrying the names of persons who are not permitted entry, and the names of two reporters are on that list. However, neither of the men named is currently assigned to the Dodger beat.

(I wonder how Jimmy Powers is doing in the Navy?)

Old timer "Mom" Schenck recalls the days when Coney Island's main attractions were restaurants, all in a row. Strauch's Famous Dance Hall, Perry's College Inn, McLaughlin's, Tappan's, and Feltman's, all bustling with food and music as the horse-drawn buggies disgorged eager diners. Entertainers there who would one day be famous included the likes of Eddie Cantor, Jimmy Durante, and Sophie Tucker.

Despite wartime shortages, the Sears Roebuck & Company catalog for Fall and Winter 1942 is out on time, and is only four pages smaller than the equivalent edition last year. Nonetheless many articles formerly offered are no longer available from the company, including tires, radios, refrigerators, electrical items, and similar items. The space once occupied by such merchandise is now taken up with expanded offerings of furniture, clothing, shoes, piece goods, and other "soft" goods, as well as by detailed explanations of ceiling prices and the various restrictions applying to the purchase of construction supplies, electrical equipment, and other such hardware items.

(He hasn't lost all his hair yet, but give him time.)

You might think Bobby Clark is the only comic appearing in "Star and Garter," but you'd be wrong -- if you look close, you'll also notice a very funny fellow named Pat Harrington, who's been a trouper almost as long as Clark himself. Pat started on the stage as a 6-year-old "baby comedian" in 1908, and other than a stretch in khaki during the last war, he's been at it ever since. Harrington says he's greatly enjoying working with Clark, whom he calls "the greatest student of comedy in the business," and Bobby's skill with the ad lib means every night's performance is different. However, Harrington allows that even Clark's ad-libbing can''t top that of the recently-deceased Jack White, with whom he also worked back in his nightclub days. "Ad libbing is hard work," notes Harrington, "work that probably subtracted years from Jack White's life."

Herbert Cohn says director Sam Wood makes pictures that -- Kings' Row for example -- aren't good because they lack depth. "Pride of The Yankees," however, while lacking depth, *is*, like many others of Wood's movies, good.
