Talking
It Over
B 1 JOE WILLIAMS
CHICAGO, Oct. I.—They are say
ing that only a miracle can
save the Cubs from defeat at the
hands of the Yanks In the world
scries which swung into its third
game here on the lake front today.
When they start saying that, it
practically is ended. The under
taker can't be far away.
Indeed, most of the boys are turn
ing to other subjects for conversa
tion, conspicuous among which is
the Babe Ruth salary situation. It
seems that there is always a Babe
Ruth salary situation. When the
series is the great slugger's
contract will have expired. He has
been drawing down $75,000 for six
months work.
This Is more money than is paid the
president of the United States. To some
people there is nothing strange In this
economic contrast, and to Ruth It is per
fectly sound and proper.
"Did Hoover ever hit a ball over the
fence with three on?" He demands. I
think the answer is no.
What will Ruth pull down next year?
The Question is more interesting than
usual bv reason of the report going the
rounds that the Yankee management has
decided to reduce his salary to $50,000.
This is still quite a load of sugar, but it
is not *75,000. Will Ruth stand for a
*25.000 cut?
Maybe he will and mavbe he won’t.
There is the possibility, of course, that
he will not be asked to. There is noth
ing authentic as vet about the story that
his salary is to be reduced one third. But
you can bet all the tea in China that
his contract will not be renewed without
substantial alterations.
n n
THE grim fact is that Ruth is no
longer the greatest player in
baseball. Old Man Time has finally
caught up with him. He can still
swing that big bat with magnificent
effect, but that is all. You might
say that is enough, but the critics
seem to think otherwise, and what
is more important, so des the man
agement.
You hear that the management
might even be tempted to listen to
a trade involving Ruth. I hope this
isn’t true. Ruth, more than any
other one person, made the Ameri
can League in New York. For sen
timental reasons—and because it is
due him —Ruth should be permitted
to finish his playing days in the big
town.
There are people In Boston who are
flirting with Ruth to become identified
with the Red Sox. the team with which he
made his big league start. They want him
to take over the club and manage it.
Ruth is still a tremendous personality in
Boston. The citizens would welcome him
back with vast enthusiasm.
Ruth wants to be a big league manager.
For a time he had hopes of getting the
Yankee Job. After the death of Miller
Huggins, he campaigned actively for it.
They tell me he was keenly disappointed
when Joe McCarthy was brought in from
the west and signed to a two-year con
tract.
"Why did they have to go to the Na
tional League for a manager?" he roared.
Ruth is farther away from the Yankee
Job now than he ever was. McCarthy has
established himself as a successful leader.
Within the next month or so he will be
signed to anew contract, possibly for
three years. He has sold himself
thoroughly to Colonel Jake Ruppert and
Edward Barrow.
n n u
IF Ruth ever manages a big league
club, it will not be the Yankees,
and I have my doubts that it will
be the Red Sox. Ruth is a con
firmed New Yorker now. He
wouldn’t care much about living
anywhere else. The missus is even
more emphatic against packing up
and moving along, and Boston ap
peals to her none at all.
So what? Well, did it ever occur to you
that the National League might try to lure
the Bambino into its fold? At the present
moment, the National League is on the
ropes in New York, due to the complete
collapse of the Giants. When the Giants
can not draw more than 300 cash cus
tomers to a ball game—any kind of a ball
game—the outlook is forbidding Indeed.
Would Ruth as manager put new life in
the Giants? He couldnt’ miss. But the
drawback is that Bill Terry has Just signed
a two-year contract to see what he can do
about bringing the once great club back
to the peaks of its old glory. Ruth as
manager of the Giants is an exciting idea,
but it can't mean anything for at least
two years.

got no more tumultuous welcome
than the twice-vanquished Cubs re
ceived Friday afternoon when their
train pulled into the La Salle street
station from the New York world

The odd thing was that the same
crowd cheered the victorious Yan

they arrived at the same station
an hour later.
"Don’t worry, we’ll beat ’em to

when Charlie Grimm, marshaled
his Cubs to their automobiles.

There are many football coaches who •will tell you that the tackle
positions are the most important on the team—and the hardest to fill
with capable performers.
In that case, Hunk Anderson, Notre Dame mentor, has little to
worry about.. Two husky speed boys, both of whom received all-America
rating last year, are back tearing ’em up for the Irish.
‘‘Nice going, Yanks! Atta boy,
Ruth—how’s for a homer?” they
greeted the surprised Yankees.
Chicago takes its baseball that
seriously. The cheers for the Cubs
were cheers of hope and encourage
ment. The cheers for the Yankees
were cheers of admiration.
The players literally had to swim
their way through a narrow lane of
admirers who smiled and blew
kisses or roared encouragement and
slapped them on the back.
"Hi, Steve, you old hoss.”
“Atta boy, Kiki, old kid, old kid.”
‘‘Go get ’em, Gabby, we’re back

So it went, down the roster. What
ever gloom the Cubs had brought
along faded before it. They laughed,

BY BABE RUTH
CHICAGO, Oct. I.—l do not expect that the world series will see
any more of the Yankee stadium, and I am voicing the opinion of every
other member of the Yankees when I say this.
When the series started, I predicted that we would win in six games.
Things have happened since to make me feel that the series will not go
beyond five, and probably no more than four.
Do not let me appear to be bragging about what we will do. I bas
the opinion on the fact that the Chicago pitching is not likely to be
as tough for us in the next two games as it has been in the first two, and
we won both.
We didn't hit Bush hard and we did not get anything bigger than
a single off Warneke. That sort of hitting is below the usual Yankee
standard. I expect to see the boys break out here with some long hitting,
and I do not think that Root and Malone will bother us as much as Bush
and Warneke did.

Connersville high school has been

tussle.
_OCT. 1932
Then there is another reason.
There is the handicap which those
first two defeats imposes on the
Cubs. Several times it has hap
pened that a team won a series aft
er dropping the first game, but it
never has happened in a seven
game world series that a team lost
the first two games and then was
able to win. Look at it this way.
Charley Grimm’s team must beat
us four out of the remaining five
games to become world champions,
and I don’t think they can do that.
Remembers 1921 Setback
I recall that the 1921 Yankees,
of which I was a member, won the
first two games and then lost the
series. But that year we played a
nine-game series, or until one team
had won five games. The Giants
beat us, five games to three. So
you can see what a handicap the
Cubs face because of those first two
defeats.
All our players are In fine trim
and we still have plenty of high
class pitching ready to toss at the
Cubs. George Pipgras will pitch
the third game and I look for
Johnny Allen for the next one.
Both pitched fine ball during
September—in fact. Allen has been
a steady winner since June, and he
won seventeen during the season
against four defeats.
Reserve Hurlers Ready
Then we have Herb Pennock.
Danny MacFayden and Walter
Brown as starting possibilities, or
ready to jump in if a game begins
to get away. Ruffing will be ready
to start again in the fourth game, if
neccessary. With all this reservo
pitching at hand, I can’t figure how
we can lose.
I was sorry to hear today that
Mark Koenig may not be able to
play again. If we are to win we
would rather beat the best team
the Cubs can put on the field. I
feel that the National Leaguers can
not afford to lose as good a hitter
as Mark. But that is one of tho
tough breaks of the game.
Hopes for JFour in Row
I do not think we are handicapped
to any extent by the fact that most
of us never have played in Wrigley
Field. Players frequently do very
well on strange fields. Just re
member what Pepper Martin did
last year when the Cardinals were
playing those three games at Shibe
Park, and Pepper was an absoluta
stranger there.
The idea that a player can not do
well under such conditions is one of
baseball’s myths which lives on and
on though it is exploded hundreds of
times every season.
Yes, I must revise my first
estimate of a victory in six games.
Now I say five at most, with a
chance of making it four straight.
We sure would like to establish tho
record of three clean sweeps, and I
know that Colonel Jacob Ruppert,
owner of our club, is anxious to see
us do that.
