Jim Lost Medals—Not Fame
••OIR. you nro the great eat athlete in the world/*
^ The time wan 1912, the apeaker the late King Guxtaf
V of Sweden, and the honored athlete wft* Jim Thorpe,
In the long interval from that bright moment in the
Olympic game* at Stockholm to hi* death just the other
day, Thorpe watched his fame remain undiminished. A
poll of sportswritera in 1960 Mingled him out as the greatest
athlete of the 20th century.
Son of an Oklahoma ranchman and descendant of the
Indian chief, Black Hawk. Thorpe blazoned his story across
the uporta pages of the world. Playing for tiny Carlisle
school in Carlisle, Pr.# he won All-American football honors
in 1911 and 1912 against the cream of the big eastern col-
ALMOST single-handedly he brought the Olympic cham-
A pionship to the United States in 1912, winning tour of
five events in the pentathlon and scoring an unequalled H412
out of 10,000 points in the decathlon.
At school he had won letters in five sports. His activi-
ties included running, jumping, lacrosse, boxing, basketball,
hockey, archery, handball, rifle shooting, canoeing, swim-
ming and skating.
Once Carlisle was booked to meet Lafayette at track.
A welcoming committee looked liewildered when just two
Indians got off the train. “Where's your team?” they asked.
“Thin is the team,” said i..vipe.
“Only two of you?” they |s rsisted.
“Only one,” smiled Thorpe. "This fellow Is the manager.”
1TNHAPPILY, soon after his triumphant return from the
^ Olympics, Thorpe was pulled from his pftdestal and
stripped of his medals and trophies. Charges of professional-
ism were filed against him. Not realizing it would harm his
amateur status, he had accepted small amounts of money
for some summer baseball he'd played earlier.
His honors and bis great record marks were never re-
stored officially. But thousands of dollars were raised for
him when he was discovered to be penniless in 1951, and that
summer a movie was shown honoring his career.
Although past service age, he joined the Merchant Ma-
rine in 1945 and served on an ammunition ship during
World war II.
It’s too late for Old Jim to know it, but it still would

Twenty-five Inmates, trustees transferred from various
federal prison camps and penal institutions, were brought
to the new federal refoimatory west of El Reno late yester-
day, officials reported tjdiiv.

he felt suddenly n new confidence.
Sometime* she did not agree with
Mm They had argued Junt the
night before about Charlie, but In
the end he knew that he would
renew his confidence from her.
They *at on the davenport, and
he poured out the story
She spoke at last:
"You shouldn’t have done It!
You should have had the boys to
bark you He might have shot you
right there You're strong at think-
ing and knowing things, not In
meeting a man like that.**
Then It was ahe who began to
take the next action
"Oo get F>.ra and Oeg£ge and
the boys/' she an Id "No. I'll send
ohe of the children No one can
move In on us like this, and say
what he and mr are going to do!"
George was the first to come,
and after him, Ezra. Ish caught
the movement as Ezra’s quick eyes
shifted from Oeorge to Em and
back again. "Hr has something,"
Ish thought, "he want* to say to
me alone" But Ezra made no at-
tempt to gain the opportunity. In-
stead he ended by looking at Em
In n hnlf-embarrassed manner.
"Molly’s had to lock Evte up In
cne of the upstairs rooms." he said
Ish could tell what a hard matter
It was for Dtra, a highly iwllte and
civilized person, to have to speak
In public thus about the burst of
passion that had suddenly come
upon a half-witted girl at n man’s
At the boys* coming, there was
a little relaxing, and people be-
gan to sit down and make them-
selves comfortable. In a moment.
Ish knew they would all expect
him to begin to aav something and
he felt again that this was all hap-
pening too rapidly. What he was
actually facing was almost like the
orgunlbitlon of a new state And
yet, they could not sit down quiet-
ly and start out by writing a con-
stitution with a good old-fash-
ioned preamble. No. a particular
and troublesome situation faced
them, and they must act In the
face of it.
Hr put the question sharply:
"What are we going to do about
Evte and this Charlie?"
There was n babble of talk, and
Ecru stood up That waa un-
usual of him, too. being so formal
And It was also unusual that he
be embarrassed Hi
florid face was even redder than
usual, and he glanced back and
forth, particularly at Em, It
seemed, in an uncertain manner
"I've got to say something
more." he said. "I talked with
that fellow. Charlie, last night
after we went home, quite a while
He’d been drinking a lot, you know
—talked pretty freely." And.now,
Ezra glanced toward the boys, as
if realizing that they, poor half-
savages, would not know* really
what a cilivlzed man was discuss-
ing. "He told inc quite a bit about
himself, which was what I was
Again he paused, and Ish could
not remember Drra ever having
been like this before
"Come on. Ezra." he said "Tell
us. This la Juat us."
Suddenly the bonda of Ora'a
reticence broke "Thla guy. Char-
lie!" he burst out. "He* rotten In-
side as a 10-day fish Dtsea.se*."
Ish saw the news visibly shake
George’s big body us if It had
bean a Jolting blow on the chest.
He saw the flush spread over Em'a
creamy-colored face To the boys
the news was nothing They did
not know what Ezra was talking

▼▼ —Department of Agriculture
has Just put out a little leaflet tell-
ing the housewife how to broil a
steak, cook a pot roast, fry a steak
with onions, stuff a flank steak,
whip up a ragout (stew, to you>.
Or. If you want to get real fancy,
the new handout tells how to make
Swiss steak—either with macaroni
Word from the Department of
Agriculture's Office of Information
Is that 8600 copies of this leaflet
are bfing sent out. on a national
basis. Newspaper food editors, furm
and home magazine food editora
radio and television food editors
and the branch offices of the Pro-
duction and Marketing Administ-
ration are all getting this hand-
out. And they're supposed to do
something about It.
So if cooks across the country
begin to be bnrraged with beef-dish
recipes in the next few weeks or
months, they’ll know why.
Along with the recipes, another
four-page pamphlet, "Facts About
Beef." Is being put out. To quote
the subheadings It says. "Beef Is
Plentiful. Beef Is Body Builder." It
then lists sources of other Informa-
tion about beef, and gives all the
cuts from top round to bottom sir-
loin. from neck to round, telling
what to do about each when bring-
ing them Into contact with a hot
T^OW behind all this hangs a
tale, and not Just the oxtail
In the soup.
When Secretary of Agriculture
Ezra Taft Benson's Livestock Ad-
visory Committee was in town re-
cently, trying to flndL out what to
do about failin'* cnjfle prices, one
of his recommemyttion* was that
the Department (ft Agriculture do
what It could to promote the sale
The Livestock and Meat Board
out In Chicago waa called on to
do what It could toward the same
end. Packers were to be urged to
advertise beef more heavily. The
whole campaign was to be aimed
at Increasing consumption of beef,
thereby reducing the supply and
thereby again raising the price.
As Secretary Benson remarked
the other day, "Some people had
stopped eating beef altogether."
The price was too high. Now that
the supply is up and the price Is
down, the big Idea I* to get people
back into the habit of rating beef
All this strikes a familiar note to
old-timers in Washington.
