Sportscaster Walter Lanier ("Red") Barber, official announcer over Mutual's WOR of all games of the Brooklyn ("Them Bums") Dodgers (see p. 46), served as commentator with the New York Philharmonic-Symphony this week. He broadcast from the Lewisohn Stadium (where the Philharmonic played) Composer Robert Russell Bennett's Symphony in D for the Dodgers (TIME, May 26). In the Fourth Movement, "The Giants Come to Town," Red Barber chanted, against a rising crescendo:
Here comes Hub's pitch,
He gets a hold of it.
It's a long one.
Ott is going back to the fence,
