' (By AsMoclnteil Press) Washington, Oct. '11. The Repub lican compromise tax revision pro gram was started on its way through the senate today with the adoption without a dissenting or record vote of an amendment proposing repeal .on next Januray 1 of the transporta tion taxes on freight, passenger and Pullman accomodations, express packages and oil by pipe lines. There were increasing evidences, however, both on the floor of the senate and behind the scenes that some of the other compromise pro posals would not find as easy sailing. Senatrs in" the so-called manufac turer's bloc, supported . by house leaders, were all set to launch their fight against the fifty per cent, maxi mum income sur.tax rate amendment after its introduction. House leaders were understood to have made it plain that they would not recede from the original house maximum rate of 32 per cent, but some senators were of the opinion that the reduction likely to be made by the conferees would not be quite as great as 18 per cent. Eefore adopting the transportation tax repeal amendment the senate rated down an amendment by Sena tor Trammell, of Florida, proposing that the repeal be effective ten day after the passage of the bill. Dis posal of these two amendments con stituted practically all progress made today on the bill itself.

(By Associated PTra New York, Oct. 11. Forcing the issue with the Yankees by powerful work with the stick the Giants even ed the world's series count today. taking the -sixth game 8 to 6. Each club now has won three games and if the courfee of the struggle so far is anything to judge by the battle bids fair to go the limit of nine en counters with a great contest on the last day for final honors. Today s game at the Polo Grounds, played in mild autumn weather to a crowd of some 34,000 spectators, took on, for a couple of innings, the as pect of a battle of home run hitters. Meanwhile up in the stand, his dam aged arm in a sling, unable to play, sat Babe Ruth, the king of all the home run hitters, a pathetic picture of baffled determination, watching no less than three other men clout the ball for circuit drives before the game was two innings old. Ruth's, Sub Puts It Over Two of these men were of the op posing klan. The other was Babe Ruth's own substitute, Chick Fews- er. Substitute Fewster lifted the ball into the left field'bleachers with a man aboard in the Yankee's second innnig, putting his club on the happy side of a two run margin after the home runs of Giant sluggers, Emil Meusel and Frank Snyder, had can celed a three run advantage which the American leaguers had acquired ' n the first inning. There was noth ng of jealousy in Ruth's demeanor as he watched all this and the one happy smile observed on his face during the afternoon appeared when Chick inserted his four base blow. The game untimately, and most de servedly, went to the Giants aftre a thunderous defense upon pitcher Bob Shawky in the fourth which netted four runs and gave Jess Barnes a commanding margin upon which to pitch a game of consummate skill for the remaining innings he occu pied the mound. Karnes a Second Choice Barnes was Manager McGraw's second choice. Jess didn't start the game. Fred Tony did that. Three runs had gone across the plate on bit of snappy consecutive hitting by the Yankees when he was remov ed. Barnes prevented further scor ing in that inning, but in the second a single followed by Fewster's hom er, added two runs to the Yankee's total. The Yankees scoring stopped right there, however. Barnes was their master all the rest of the way. Every regular on the Yankee team was fanned by Barnes at least once, and Ward struck out twice. It was Barnes' second victory of the series. Manager Huggins also was forced to a second choice of boxmen early in the game. Harry Harper, the Yankee's only off-side twirler, last ed f little longer than Toney, but nothing to boast about, and was re lieved By Shawkey. ., Yanks Draw First Blood The Yankees got away to a flying (Continued on Page 4) f '"I ' 7 1 ) . mi t .
