l was up in the press box,

even though l don't cover sports.

l came out from New York to do

a series on rocket hardware,

but l picked up a blond

and a pass to the ball game

because l just can't resist athletics.

Any kind.

There was more

than one game going on.

l started to discuss the last play

and suggested the next one.

Shows you what hard work

and the will to succeed can achieve.

By the eighth inning l'd found

a much more comfortable place

to watch the game.

The pitch is outside, making

the count 3-2 on the batter.

This crowd is going out of its mind.

Here's the pitch. And it's a base hit

right over second base.

l have an idea the excitement

is just beginning, so don't go away.

And now, a word

about something of interest

to all you men in our audience.

Fellas, if you're like l am, when

you want a lather, you want it fast.

Well, you're looking at something

that'll wilt your beard

faster than anything known

to science; lnsta-Shave.

Look for it.

There's no mistaking this package.

And now, back to the field.

Here's the windup.

The pitch. Strike one,

right on the inside corner.

Here comes the next pitch.

And there she goes.

Going, going... lt's a home run,

over the right-field fence.

Boy, oh, boy!

lf you left this game early,

you've certainly missed a lot of action.

You're fired.

Sacked. Or as we used to put it

in the newspaper business, canned.

Pick up your severance pay

and get out.

Have l made myself painfully clear?

You know, Mr. Chalmers,

my contract with lnternational Press

was drawn by the outstanding,

foremost, the most respected

sneaky lawyer in the business.

l, along with the United

Automobile Workers

and the Brotherhood of Teamsters--

Thank you.

And the lnternational Alliance
