New Boss Makes Sox 194£ A.L. Flae Threat Bv HARRY GRAYSON NEA Sports Editor NEW YORK, Oct. 4.—Joseph Vincent McCarthy’s appoint ment alone restores he Red Sox as an American League threat in 1948. Baseball men long have fig ured that throughout a 154-game haul a club deployed by Joe McCarthy has a 10-game ad vantage over the others on his ' managing. i Marse Joe reduces baseball to its simplest form. “Give me four to hit it, three to throw it and two to make the double play and I’ll win in any league,” he says. He’s a great tactician. In Boston, McCarthy should have four hitting it with Wil liams, Pesky, Mele, The Little Professor DiMaggio, Doerr and some more. From among Dobson, Ferriss, COLLEGE PARK MEN'S SUITS All Hard Finish AVAILABLE IN . . . Regular Long Shorts Stout Short Stouts McFadyenBros. MEN’S WEAR 121 Princess St. 2-0402 Harris, Galehouse, Johnson, Dorish and others, he should find at least three starting pitchers capable of throwing it up to his standard. He has the double play com bination in Johnny Pesky and Bobby Doerr. Under owner Yawkey, gener al manager Cronin and adviser Collins, McCarthy will have the free hand he demands, and ob viously lost when Larry Mac Phail took over the Yankees. McCarthy moving to the Hub starts a new era on the Ameri can League side there, just as the coming of Billy Southworth did on the National. Ted Williams made something approaching a semi-reformation this year. But the American League batting champion would not sacrifice, made little or no attempt to punch the ball into left field to break up the shift, didn’t run everything out. In short, the willowy San Diegan more or less continued to play for himself. That won’t do with McCarthy. The reformation of Williams will be complete—or else, and that goes for the finest hitter of the day. McCarthy has never tolerated an athlete who did not conform to pattern. Guided by McCarthy’s skillful hand, the hard - headed young man no doubt will see the light and the advantages of team play. McCarthy running the works at Fenway Park spurs the al ready keen rivalry between the Bosox and Yankees. Tom Yawkey has the money and elaborate farm system with which to give the Bombers a bad time.

C. DiMag’s Homer Gives N.Y. Series’ Edge; Lombardi Set To Hurl For Bums Today BROOKLYN, Oct. 4—(/P)—Frank (Spec) Shea, brilliant freshman pitcher, arid the great Joe DiMaggio combined their talents today to give the Yankees a tense 2-to-l triumph over the Dodgers in the fifth game of the Wor.d Series at Ebbets Field and move the Bronx Bombers within one victory of their 11th world championship. Cookie Lavagetto, the Dodger pinch-hitter who bounced a game-winning double off the fence in the ninth inning to win yesterday’s thriller for the Flatbushers, went down swinging for the final out today with the tying run on second base. It was too much to expect Cookie to do it twice m a row. Shea, in racking up his second victory of the playoffs, pitched a superb four-hitter and knocked across the Yankees’ first run off young Rex Barney, the losing Brooklyn flinger. DiMaggio smashed his second home run of the series into the left field up perdeck in the fifth frame to provide Shea with all the margin he needed. Brooklyn scored its lone run off the Naugatuck, Conn., right hander in the sixth when he issued two walks and Jackie Rob inson, Dodger first baseman, drove a single off Shea’s glove into center field. Shea’s dra matic strikeout of Lavagetto as Dodger fans prayed for another [miracle was his seventh of the contest. Although Brooklyn threw four pitchers into the fray, including the ever-ready Hugh Casey for the third time in as many days, it was not necessarily a tribute to Yankee power. Outside of the two vital blows by Shea and DiMaggio, the only other hits the winners collected were a single and a double by Tommy Henrich and a double to the fence by Shea after two were out in the eighth. DiMaggio’s circuit blow, in fact, possibly saved the Clipper from going down as the official goat of the game. In three other attempts the Yankee star rapped feebly into two double plays and struck out, each time with run ners on base. Barney, 22-year-oia surprise starter for the Dodgers, gave up both Yankee scores before he had to be lifted soon after DiMaggio's blow, but he did surprisingly well, considering everything It was the first game the kid from Omaha had started since July 4, and he was as wild as the north ern winds, but the American Leaguers had a tough time get ting him out of there. In the four and two-thirds in nings he worked the young fire baller issued nine walks, within one of the new world series rec ord set only yesterday by the ill starred Bili Beviens of the Yanks, yet only one of them figured in the scoring against him. Sheas control, on the other hand, was immaculate through the early part of the game, and he didn’t let a Dodger reach first until Pee Wee Reese worked him for a walk with one out in the fourth. Thereafter the Yankee star gave up two passes in each of thetwo following innings, and one of them, opening the sixth, led to Bdooklyn’s only run. As the playoff moves back across the East river to Yankee stadium tomorrow, the Dodgers will be in position neither to gamble on any Barneys of their mound staff, nor to make any mistakes. One more loss and Flatbush still will go on yearning for its first world championship. It was considered certain, that Shotton would sent Vic Lombardi after the vital game. The south paw was treated harshly by the Yanks in the second series game, but he is a stouthearted little performer and might easily come back with a brilliant effort. In event, he appeared to be Shot ton’s only real hope, down. NEW YORK (AL) AB R H O A !

Except for the first six min utes when L. S. U. scored twice on breaks and for a brief time in the third period when the Tigers put on their Georgia Bull dog which dominated the play all the way. The hefty Georgia line ripped LSU’s forwards apart time and again permitting Bulldog backs to scamper for long gains in startling reversal of pre-game dope. Rausch, Georgia quarterback, was directly responsible for the first two Tiger Scores with er ratic ball-handling, but he re deemed himself after that to toss three scoring passes. The Bulldog had a 19-9 edge on first downs and pilled up 203 yards rushing as they mastered the crew of coach Bernie Moore in every department.

LUJACK CLICKS FOR IRISH’ 40-6 PITTSBURGH, Oct. 4— UP) — The Notre Dame gridiron ex press ran late today but engi neer Johnny Lujack’s adroitness generated ' enough steam to bring the fighting Irish home on schedule with a 40-6 victory over a surprisingly tough band of Pitt Panthers. It was Notre Dame's first start and the 64,333 shirtsleeved fans on hand blinked in disbe lief as the Panthers made things hotter than the 80-degree tem perature for almost a full half. The Irish started on to do the expected by scoring in the first six minutes as Terry Brennan of Milwaukee plunged three yards for a touchdown in cli max to a 57-yard march. But from there on until the last few minutes of the half, it was strictly a Pitt show. Pitt recovered a fumble with the second quarter half gone and went on to score, sub half back Carl DePasqua of Wil liamsport running over from seven yards out. Notre Dame blocked a place ment by halfback Louis Cec coni of Donora, Pa., which would have given the Panthers a 7-7 tie at that point. Lujack, the Conn ells ville, Pa., brain behind the Notre Dame “T” took over from there and turned what might have been an upset into strictly no con test. He fired the first of three touchdown passes to sub end Douglas Waybright of Saugus, Mass., in a 10-yard scoring play which climaxed an 80-yard march as the half ended with the Irish leading 13-6.

Blaik sent a total of 46 players into the game, including 18 backs. Most of them gained ground through and over the bulky Colorado line, which was able to stop the Cadets only once.

He did it in the first quarter, when the Buffaloes still were putting up strong risistance, on a long pass from Bill Gustafson. He repeat ed in the fourth on a 12-yard end run. Other touchdowns were made by Abos Gillette, Bert Aton, Bobby Stuart, Winfield Scott and Karl Kuckahn. Jack Mackmull converted five times in seven attempts.
