October B.—‘Bucky” Harris, boy manager of the Nation als, and John McGraw, veteran pilot of the Giants, meet today in the fifth game of their seven-round bout for the world base ball champion ship. After a ijight of rain the sun came out this morning, and indications ■were that there would be good weather for the world series game this afternoon. Southpnn* Victorious. The first four sessions developed Into a battle of rights and lefts, with the margin strongly in favor of the eouthpaw swings. Yesterday Harris evened up the fight by taking the fourth round by a score of 7 to 4. the widest margin of the struggle. George Mo gridge, a left-handed pitcher, and Goose Goslin, a port-sided batter. Jab bed the Giants silly. Today Manager McGraw- wig "re vert to his southpaw tactics and use Arthur Nehf if the latter’s injured band permits. Otherwise the New York hurler will be Bentley or Wat son. Harris will utilize the hefty right hand punch, which won the pennant for his team, Walter John ' son. veteran of 18 years of diamond battling. Meanwhile, the public is enjoying the base ball battle of the century. Yesterday, 49.243 people, the largest paid attendance which ever witnessed a game at the Polo Grounds, cheered the visiting Nationals even more than the home-town Giants/ Today anoth er record-breaker is expected. The purse for which the teams are • battling amounts to $248,319.38. Each Giant will draw about $3,731 by- win ning or $3,821 by losing. The win ning Nationals’ figure would be about $8,477 and the losing amount $4,319. Peek Still Out of Game. Roger Peckinpaugh. shortstop of the Nationals, was not able to play yesterday because of a Charley horse and will not be used today unless the injury has improved beyond expecta tions. Bluege took his place at short and Miller replaced Bluege at third. The absence of the veteran Peckln paugh weakened the impenetrable in field until the far corner resembled a tseive. In the first inning it appeared as if Washington had completely shot its bolt in the first two games and whs done as a contender. Mogridge walked two men and Bluege contrib uted an error and the Giants were off in front with a run. Then, as Zachary, another left-handed veteran with a slow serve, had done on Sunday. Mogridge proceeded to stand the Giants on their heads. He allowed only three hits in seven Innings. George Kelly tallied the only Giant run during this period on two infield outs which followed his double in the sixth. Meanwhile Goose Goslin, the man who puts the punch in Washington, but whose efforts had only given Frisch a chance to shine on Monday, discovered a means of circumventing the Giant proposition. With two on in the third inning Goose hit one so high and hard that not only Frisch but Ross Young, the Giant right-fielder, watched it soar , Into the stands for a home run. MeNeHy Helps Nats. The lower three of the Nationals’ bat ting order were absolutely powerless, but when Goose appeared there was ac tion. In the fifth, McNeeiy, who with Bluege came to life with three hits yes terday, singled, and Harris followed his example. The former ecored on a wild pitch, and Goose drove a hit past Jack eon for the other run. Virgil Barnes left then. Baldwin was taken out for a pinch hitter after two innings and Wayfand Dean was pitching when Goose again came up in the eighth. Dean, known for bis -home-run ball,” was throwing his • ’’single ball” yesterday. Goslin and Judge hit for one base each, advanc ed on Meusel’s w-ild throw, and scored when Bluege made his third hit. Dean threw the "single ball” out and finished the game impressively. But Mogridge had gone the way of all left-handers in this series by weakening in the late stages. Two stops by Harris saved him in the seventh, but in the eighth he walked two men and gave Wilson two balls before Harris signaled for Marberry, the champion relief pitcher of the •world, who "bore down” and checked the rampaging Giants for the second time during the series. Wilson poked a double to left, which scored one man before Marberry struck his pace and retired the side. In the ninth he permitted the Giants to stage the usual ninth-inning rally of the losing team, but after one run ’bad been scored and as Giant fans Implored George Kelly to tie the score with a home run, which would tally .the two Giants on the sacks, the big pitcher made the equally big Kelly .whiff Ingloriously to end the battle. Commons to Determine Fate Os MacDonald Cabinet Today Defeat Appears Inevitable Over Party Attitude Toward Communist Weekly , Leaders on All Sides Believe . BY HAL. O’FLAHKKTY. By Cable to The Star and Chicago Dally News LONDON. October 8. —The elements of political and personal animosity and class hatred promise to make the debate In the House of Commons to night one of the most violent in history. n The fate of the Socialist govern ment will be decided some time before 11:30 o'clock, after a vote on the con servative motion on censure which states "that the conduct of the gov ernment In relation to the institu tion and subsequent withdrawal of the proceedings against the editor of the Workers’- AA'eekly is deserving of censure by this house.” Both parties now seek to hold MacDonald’s ministry responsible for Attorney General Hastings' action, but the Liberals want the case in vestigated by a select committee of the House of Commons and have submitted an amendment to the above motion expressing their de sires. • Realizing the state of feeling In the country, Mr. MacDonald has repudi ated any connection between social ism and communism and even has in sisted that the Labor party ttxpel the Communists outright.

Sports Editor The Star. POLO GROUNDS. NEW YORK, Oc tober B.—Unless bad weather inter feres, and the outlook this morning is somewhat doubtful, the Nationals should be well on their way to at tainment of the base ball champion ship of the world by eventide. Upon the broad shoulders of Walter Johnson will fall the responsibility of making amends for the failure that attended his efforts In the first game of the series at Washington last Saturday and AValter feels as confident as the other members of the team that'a filfferent story today will be told. It was thought that Johnson this afternoon again would be pitted against Arthur Nehf. who was credit ed Mflth that 12-inning victory regis tered by the Giants In the initial com bat, but later developments indicate that the slender southpaw may not be able to go to the mound today as he is suffering from an Injury to hlfi pitching hand. Thnmb In Affected. “I may not be able to pitch today,” Nehf was quoted as saying this morn ing. ‘T was hit on the pitching hand by a line drive in the first game at Washington and the Injury has tra veled to the joint of my thumb. I attempted to pitch a few curve balls before the game yesterday, but the injury became so painful I had to quit. I had the hand painted with idoine and hope to be able to get in there this afternoon, but I don’t know how it will feel until I try it out again.” It was believed that should Nehf find himself unable to work effective ly today the pitching assignment would be turned over to John Needles Bentley, the native of Sandy Spring. Md., who once disported in a Wash ington uniform. Bentley gave a good exhibition in the second contest of the set Sunday in Washington, but had to content himself with the short end of a 4-to-3 count because Jezebel Tecumseh Zachary flashed an even classier performance and also had the benefit of some sturdy attacking support from his teammates, notabiy Goose Goslin, who yesterday repeated his stunt of the Sabbath In poling a home run, although on this more re cent occasion there were two Instead of merely one of his mates on the runways. Team Spirits High. In any event, having again pulled up to even terms with the Giants, due largely to the fine pitching of George Mogridge yesterday, with two games each to their credit in the four disposed of to date, the Na tionals feel convinced that behind Johnson today they will vault to the front in contest for the highest honors in the base ball world and that they should end the struggle with another triumph over the Na tional League champions under the leadership of Zachary in Washington tomorrow. The only fly In the ointment Is the condition of Roger Peckinpaugh, vet eran shortstopper and balance wheel of the crack infield that played such a prominent part in this year bring ing to Washington the first major league pennant the Capital ever had known. Whether Peck’s charleyhorse would permit of him getting Into the line-up still was a mooted question at noon. Roger, himself. In answer to questions on the subject, replied “yes,” but his co-workers shook their heads negatively. Manager Harris, upon whom the decision rests, was frankly In doubt. He was inclined to think that Peck might be able to go to bat should an emergency arise, but he would not venture an opinion as to whether the veteran would be able to continue In the line-up In a fielding capacity. - - If Peck is unable to play with his accustomed skill there Is no denying the fact that the Nationals will be greatly weakened. This was proved yesterday when Tarzan Miller es sayed to guard the bag at the far corner with poor success. It Is true that the Griffs won yesterday with out Peck's services and that they may be able to continue doing so, but one cannot help wondering what would happen If the Giants were to concen trate their attack with Miller as their target. It’s a mystery to this writer why John McGraw of the “master mind” didn’t do some experimenting along this line yesterday. m SUNDAY MOENINO EDITION WASHINGTON, D. 0., WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1924-nTHIRTY-EIOHT PAGES. from the opposition, but he resented the fact that the Liberals forced his hand, and launched suchaa bitter at tack on David Lloyd George and Her bert Asquith that they are bound to make reply In kind during today’s de bate. Party whips refuse to predict the result of tonight’s conflict. It is cer tain that If the Liberals stand fast and vote with the Conservatives, Mr. MacDonald will resign and ask the King to dissolve Parliament. Labor ites such as Thomas Henderson de clared today that the government's defense of Hastings will prove so con vincing that the Liberals will be obliged to support labor. Their op timism is not shared by others who realize that the Liberals cannot brook MacDonald's fiery attacks. Blow Held Inevitable. Several alternative methods of avoiding defeat have been suggested to the Labor ministers, each entail ing the questionable tactics of Join ing the Conservatives to defeat the Liberal amendment, but after each method is analyzed the conviction re mains that the government will re ceive a fatal blow. There is always the possibility of the speeches becoming so violent to cause adjournment, but this is uiff likely. AVith unemployment steadily rising, ” (Continued on Page 2, Column 8.) MAD THRONG READY TO GREET GRIFFS Thousands Will Shout Wel come to Fighting Bail Club, Arriving Tonight. Those pennant-grabbing, never-say die base ball heroes comprising the rising young firm of Bucky Harris and company will return from for eign conquests to the old home town late tonight amid the welcoming din of Washington's citizenry gone wild. They- are coming back determined to settle this world championship argument, where 40,000 base ball aberrated fans may see Just how It’s done in the best circles. And those audacious, fight-crazed. Giant-killing Nationals expect to walk right up to their dizzy foe and obtain a stran gle hold on the enemy that he and tWwerld will not soon forget. As soon as the team walks off the Polo Grounds this afternoon and completes ablutions beneath the show ers, it will hasten with fleet steps to a special train, steaming to go, and turn a grim aggregation of faces to ward the Washington Monument. Crowd Will Give Greeting. Regardless of the outcome of today’s contest in the Giants’ stronghold, a great crowd of shouting men, women and children is expected to jam the concourse at Union Station around 10 o'clock tonight to greet the National Capital’s first and only pennant-win ning base ball outfit, just as they welcomed It home after ending the season on top of the American League heap of exhausted teams. Will Help Curb Police. Co-operation of the citizens in keep ing the special detail of police in bounds was promised today by the citizens themselves. There has been a noticeable tendency lately on the part of Maj. Sullivan’s blue coats to forget that they are Invested with jobs of authority and to act more like human beings. The major himself has been affected, and he forgot to wear his uniform to that opening game last Saturday. One of his pa trolmen on guard In the bleachers Sunday arrested an excited cheer leader for not performing his task well enough and, confiscating the prisoner's megaphone, showed the bleacherites the proper way to make themselves hoarse. The prisoner then was released on probation. Well, anyhow, it looks like old Chris Columbus is going to discover America for the second time on Union Station plaza tonight, and .if the old boy could speak his feelings, he no doubt would order the top sheet un furled and all sails set for Genoa. Some Will Be Absent. There will be some rabid fans who will deliberately absent themselves tonight from the station, however. A casual stroller along ill-lighted Fifth street, beside the Griffith Stadium, would discern these faithless persons slumped shamefully against the brick wall of the right field bleachers, more recently dignified with the respect able title, “pavillion.” As morning breaks over Park View tomorroW, however, these men, and perhaps also women, will shake off their lethargy and smile a broad smile. They had missed mobbing Bucky, and Goose and Marberry and Peck and AValter and the rest on their arrival at the station, but they had assured themselves meanwhile of a seat in the very territory where the Goose has a dangerous habit of poling perfectly good base balls. These thoroughbred rooters will not need to rely on the scalpers for their seats to the game tomorrow. And the scalpers know better than to try their gouging on them. The speculators did, however, manifest themselves in hotels and other places today and while their business was not done as openly as before the opening game, they found plenty of customers for,their wares. Internal revenue representatives kept tab on their activities to see that the Fed eral tax laws were complied with, and police saw that no tickets were sold in public places without a permit. 1 Two Cents Only | Is Price of | | Base Ball Extra | Edition of The Star | JL.— n* — —-..! DEMOCRATIC PARTY IN DIMM STATE ON m COAST Great Advance in Next Month Held Vital if Ranks Are to Be Held.# DESERTIONS HELP BOTH G. 0. P. AND LA FOLLETTE California, in Particular, Skepti . cal Toward Davis After Sup porting McAdoo. BY G. GOULD LINCOLN. Staff Corifc.. .ndent of The Star. LOS ANGELES, October B.—Unless there is a great change within the next four weeks, the Democratic party as a national party on the day after election will 'found to have nearly vanished from the Northwestern and Pacific Coast States. The Democratic strength is being split to a large extent between La Kollette on the one hand and Cool idge on the other, according to the radi cal or conservative views held by the voters. In practically all these States the atmosphere of apathy around Demo cratic headquarters is thick enough to cut with a knife. Little effort, it seems, is being made to stem the tide. It was manifest during the Demo cratic national convention in New York that the Western States were bent on nominating a progressive. They had picked upon William Gibbs McAdoo as the most available man. He registered progressive with them. Under his ban ner. too, many of the voters who were dissatisfied generally with conditions— without thinking one way or another about “progresslvism” were ready to enroll. Came the defeat of McAdoo and the nomination of John W, Davis, whom many of the Western Democrats looked upon as in a class with Calvin Coolidge so far as progressive measures are con cerned. Many of them retired dis gruntled. The air was out of the balloon so far as they were concerned. California Disroa raged. In none of the Western States, per haps; is the Democratic discourage ment greater than it is right here in California. Perhaps this is due. in part, to the lead which California democracy took in the fight to nomi nate McAdoo for the presidency. The Democrats of the State spent a large amount of money to help finance his preconvention and convention cam paigns. They* have not been willing, so f.l to contribute further to the Der or-atic campaign. The conse quence is that the" war chest in this State is sadly depleted. Where you see large offices and many workers for La Follette and for Coolidge, there lascarcely a semblance oT activity on the part of the Democrats and their offices and workers are small in size and number. The Democratic leaders had been hoping for a revival of Democratic sentiment when McAdoo should take the slump for the party ticket in this State, in Oregon and Washington, as it was hoped he would do. The news that he had been compelled to go to a hospital in Baltimore for an opera tion and would not. in all probability, be able to campaign prior to the elec tion was a disappointment to them. For example, leaders In some of these States frankkly said they would prefer to have McAdoo come to them for a number of speeches rather than Candi date Davis.

By the Associated Press. TOKIO, October 8. —A spokesman of the Japanese foreign office today characterized as unconfirmed reports widely circulated In Toklo circles that an American steamer landed large quantities of munitions at Tientsin, China, during the night, consigned to the Peking armies of the central government of China. “An investigation has been started in this matter." the foreign office spokesman said. The report of an American ship landing munitions at Tientsin is an outstanding example of the propa ganda now being carried on in Japan to urge the government to lend mili tary aid by intervening In the Chinese war on the side of Gen. Chang Tso lln, who is attempting to obtain con trol of the government of China by force. The basis of the propaganda is that America Is supporting "Japan’s enemy,” Gen.

The Kiangsu forces are attempting to cut the railway line between Shanghai and Sungkiang, but the Chekiang armies, reinforced last night held the railway with forces extending along the rail| for a dis tance of about three miles in the en virons of Sungkiang. Any attempt to move trains on the part of the Chekiang forces today, however, would be at great hazard, as It would invite the full sweep of fire from the Kiangsu forces.

Dr. Alfred Lawrence Hall-Quest, director of the University of Pitts burgh extension wofk and noted lec turer, has obtained a divorce. Every precaution was taken to guard the name of the man, the cul tured love letters telling of her in fatuation for him having been copied into the record with his name deleted. In her letters the wife pleaded for her freedom, so that “social laws might sanction" her life \ylth the other man, for whom she said she was ready “to give up everything else.” After the signing of the decree by Judge H. A. Lewis every effort was made to shield Dr. Hall-Quest from publicity. Educated at Princeton. Dr. Hall-Quest, aged 44, was edu cated at Princeton, and recently, while a professor at Columbia Uni versity, took the degree of doctor of philosophy. He taught at the Uni versity of Illinois and University of Cincinnati, and wrote a number of scientific works. He married Shirley Ivy Knox in Minnesota, in 1908. In 1923, he said in evidence while he was at Columbia, she left his home in Cincinnati and came to Chicago with the other man. A few days after the elopment she wrote her husband a letter, which was introduced as evidence, in which she said; “I wanted to show you. if possible, that my going away with was necessary, not because it meant a con summation of the love that is between us, but because it offered, as we saw it, the only way for an upbuilding made necessary by years of tearing down process. “That public scandal should be avoid ed for yous sake I can quite realize, but and 1 can and must take all of the blame that attaches to our de cision to live together, and, therefore, no secrecy was ever contemplated when we left."

The last of the letters told how hope less would be the husband's plea for an interview in the hope of ending the situation. Attorneys for Dr. Hall-Quest, who left last night for Pittsburgh, ex pressed chagrin that the case had be come public, and declared the husband had done “a noble thing in giving up his wife—who, after all, cannot be blamed for following the dictates of her heart.” THREE KILLED IN CLASH.

SHENANDOAH RACES ACROSS MISSISSIPPI ON FUGHTTO COAST Passes Alabama Line Early This Morning at Speed of 65 Miles an Hour. THOUSANDS SEE SHIP ON TRIP OVER SOUTH Splendor of Sunrise From Craft Described by Correspondent on Board. By the A*kotfated Press, ABOARD THE U. S. S- SHENAN DOAH, Alabama-Mississlpni Boundary. October B.—At a speed of 65 miles an hour. 2,500 feet in the air, the Shenan doah, at 8 o’clock, central standard time, today slid into the State of Mississippi over Columbus with its course laid directly west across the State to the Mississippi River. Green ville, Miss., is expected to be reached before noon. ♦ Crour* Mountains Early. Sailing smoothly at fin altitude of 2,500 feet the Shenandoah crossed the lower tip of the Allegheny Mountains at a speed of 45 miles an hour at 6 o’clock a.m. Atlanta was passed at 4:45 a.m. just as day was breaking and the Georgia metropolis was awakening. The salvo of locomotive whistles echoed up into the clouds to the wonder of the ship. Carrollton, Ga., was passed at 5:32 a.m. ” The sun, a golden ball, was peeping over the eastern horizon of the Blue Ridge foothills at 6 a.m. The haze broke away from their tops, the rays of the morning sui rippling in long lines like a no cloud field. Banks of clouds la: heavy in the valleys, the reddish dir roads looking like ribbons among th green far below interlacing hill tops and hidden valleys. In soma of the scattered homes o: the hills, farmers’ entire families were gathered, and in the early morning wagons driving to the towns while the occupants gazed aloft as the ship emerged from the dawn. Toward dawn the head wind which the ship had been bucking died down and while the ship’s speed through the air and the speed of its motors did not change, its speed over the ground increased from 35 to 45 miles an hour due to the dying out of the wind. Watch Kept Generally. All during the night as the Shen andoah roared over Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia, countless “watch night” parties waited for her to arrive. Ideal weather marked her passage from Washington. There wai just the whisper of a breeze Into which she majestically headed and which cut her speed slightly. The Shenandoah followed the South ern Railway almost all the way from Washington well into South Carolina. Just before reaching Greenville, S. C., she steered slightly east and floated over Anderson, S. C., on her way to wards Athens and Atlanta, Ga. The Fort McPherson Army post at Atlanta established radiophone con versation with the Shenandoah and was informed the vessel might com municate with the fort frequently to day. The Shenandoah also gave the fort two official messages for the Navy Department in Washington. Gieut. Palmer did most of the talk ing In the conversations with Fort McPherson. He said that when they passed over Atlanta, the ship was about 2,200 feet up and was traveling about 45 knots, which speed it would keep up indefinitely.
