BASEHART AND PARTY TO APPEAR IN PROGRAM PRECEDING CONTEST
By Howard Spencer
Zanesville Dodgers will close their home stand tonight when they meet Springfield at the stadium in a game which will be played for the benefit of the schoolboy patrol and playground funds and will feature the appearance of Dick Basehart, who will be here for the world premiere of the movie, "Repeat Performance."
Activities will start at the stadium at 7:30 and will last about 30 minutes. Accompanying Basehart, who will throw out the first ball, will be Benny Rubin, veteran comic of vaudeville and screen fame who will act as master of ceremonies, and the starlets, Chili Williams and Frances Rafferty.
A highlight of the pre-game program will be the auctioning off of a baseball signed by Basehart and a number of other film celebrities, including Joan Leslie and Louis Hayward, who are co-starred in the movie with Basehart.
The money from the sale of the ball will go to the Junior Chamber of Commerce's juvenile delinquency fund.
All tickets for the game have been selling for $1 each. However, season tickets will be honored and regular seats will be reserved for the holders. No other seats will be reserved.
