NEW YORK, April l3r-(U.kF-
Babe Ruth’s fumed stomach
ache became Insignificant today
I in comparison with Joe Dimag-
gio's "Hot Heel”’—an injury
which may mean that the big
guy is through forever.
| Tlie New York Yankee*, their
pennant hopes hanging in the bal-
ance. prayed that the Clipper
would be back in harness "soon”
But they were whistling in the
dark, for there wus an under-
lying feeling among baseball
men that this achilles heel meant
death to Joe s career
Bill Terry, former star and
manager of the Giants, called
the shot on Joe’s chances this
"I’ve only heard of one such
case in which a ball play ir was
able to come back,” Terry in-
’ sisted while discussing Dimug-
doe's operation for removal of a
, heel spur.
And he pointed out that it was
I such a condition which ended
, ttie amuzipg career of the Great
"This is a common ailment
‘among bull players, Terry said.
"Six out of 10 have these spurs
What happens is that a calcium
deposit grows on the bone. Even
if it is cut off it grows back
again. And it is such a risky busi-
ness that most players avoid
such an operation, playing on as
long Nas they can ignore the
P^Jn.’ - A
That would seem to indicate
) that Joe was in great pain for the
past several seasons when he at-
tempted to turn it on in the heat
of a contest. Finally It became
so bad that he couldn't go on any
Then came the operations,
first on one heel and then on the
otheK Now the second foo’t which
was operated on won't stand the
Joe got away with the first heel
operation. But the chances are
that he tempted the odds just a
bit too far. This is his second
trip ofgthe training season back
to Johnsf*Hopkins hospital, it is
a bad omen.
There will be those who will
point out that Joe made it back
the firs.t time, and that he always
has been a hard luck guy in the
There was his very first sea
son as a Yankee when he. was
burned badly by a diathermy
] machine. There Were severe
Charley horses, f o o t injuries
shoulder - trouble and even a
spring tonsiteetomy, But always
he managed to pull through and
provide much of the power which
muae he Yankees famous.
This is a different mutter.
Tortured by that heel, Joe is
worthless. He can’t bat properly
and he can’t run.
And wileii tie went to camp he
thought it was completely heal-
Subsequent tnTin i n g events
showed that it wasn't : and may-
be never will be right again.
The Yankees are hoping, nat-
urally Blit it is a real long shoj.
The odds are all against him and
the Yankee Clipper very possibly
has reached his last port of call

Statement By The Hospital Board:
Since March 2nd, 1949, numerous false and malicious rumors
have been systematically circulated by parties unknown to us to
the effect that the Board of Trustees of Overall Memorial Hospital
have employed a laboratory technician with no experience or
training. In order that the public may know the real facts we
submit herewith one letter of recommendation showing the
qualifications of this technician. We have others.

This is to certify that ihe young lady accompanying this note,
Mrs. W. S. Tate, was in my employ for some ten years, starting
out as an office receptionist and book-keeper. However after
some two years, she showed an express desire to study labora
tory technical work and was sent to the laboratory of Dr. Henry
Hartman at San Antonio, Texas, at which time his place was the
laboratory of the Medical and Surgical Memoral Hospital, in San
Antonio, Texas, now the Baptist Memorial Hospital, San Antonio,
Texas. She finished 'her training there sufficient to carry out bac-
teriological, usual ordinary laboratory work together with sero-
logy and chemistry, however did not slay sufficiently long under
Dr. Hartman to complete tissue work.
She is most efficient’, capable and dependable and carried out
her laboratory regime some eight years following her course in
San Antonio, Texas.
I recommend her highly and very efficient and a very careful
technician whom I would hire.

A rumor is also becoming prevalent that we have no qualified
X-Ray technician and numbers of persons have gone to Brown-
wood for this work. This is a falsehood. We have two quali-
fied technicians on our staff to do this work.
