McGoorty yiU lay back and try to
win by cleverness, at which he is

Smoky City man. Klaus has a six
round decision over McGoorty, and
the latter wants to wipe out the mem
ory of that sting.
Klaus is the favorite, on the

Saturday we contracted with our
Constant Reader to compare the
players of the Sox and Cubs in the
city series and the Giants and Ath
letics in the world's series, so he
could lay two bits with hope of a sure
return on the investment All we can
do is to draw conclusions from what
the men have done. There are no
prophets around this department, and
we can't forecast a fellow's actions
two weeks ahead.
So take these comparisops .for
what they are worth. Don't neces
