Oc tober 8. —Walter Johnson, ace of the Griffs' hurling crew, went back against the Giants in the fifth game of the world series today, hoping to avenge the defeat suffered in the opening game of the classic. Opposing the Smoke Hall King was Jack Bentley, sturdy southpaw of the New York Champions. FIRST INNING. WASHINGTON—BentIey's first pilch to McNeely was wide. Karl took a strike, and then lined toward left, l.indsfrom making a spectacular leap ing catch of the hard-hit ball. The youthful third baseman was wildly applauded for cutting off a sure two base hit. Harris fouled one to upper left field stand after taking one ball. He looked over two more high ones, took another strike and then drove to deep left center, where Wilson got under the ball. Rice raised the first ball pitched for a pop fly to Terry. No runs. NEW YORK—Lindstrom again was applauded for hi.A fielding feat when lie came to hat to face Johnson. The young third baseman hit the first ball pitched on a line to center for one base. Frisch missed a vigorous swing. He took a wide one. fouled one off for a second strike and. after looking over two more balls, raised a foul on which Miller made a fine running catch. Young took a ball and then sent a long fly to McNeely. With a count of one and one on Kelly, I.indstrom broke for second, but »as cut down when Ruel pegged: perfectly to Harris. No run*. SECOND INNING. WASHINGTON—GoeIin ignored a wide one. then topped a single down the first-base line which Bentley or Terry’ could not handle. Judge took a ball. , fouled one off in attempt to sacrifice, passed up another wide one and fouled off once again before flying to Wilson in left-center. Bentley slipped a strike over on Hluege. then two wide ones before j fouling off another strike. He passed tip | a third ball. With the hit-and-run sign [ displayed. Bluege fouled off one, and on i the next play he popped a fly which j Terry muffed, but Frisch recovered the j bali in lime to force Gosliu with a throw to Jackson. Bentley got but one strike over in five deliveries to Huel, who was given his base on halls. Bent ley protested Umpire Connolly's decision This again brought the recruit "Tarzan” Miller up with a chance to accomplish j • something. Miller took three straight j babe before looking over a strike. Bent- i ley then slipped another one over, and I Miller then tiled when he bounded to j Frisch. No runs. NEW YORK—Cong George Kelly, I who contributed so much to Johnson's ! downfall in the opening at Washington last Saturday by socking a home run in the second inning, came to bat. He had a count of two strikes and one ball, then Johnson pitched two more wide | ones, Kelly then fouled one back before I 1 raising a foul to Miller. Judge took j care of Terry's bounder. Wilson missed i a lusty swing, took a ball and then lift ed a fly which Judge got under on foul territory . Johnson was working In more of his usual form than he displayed in the first world-series game. He was not I hesitating so long between deliveries and appeared to have recovered from the stage fright incidental to his initial appearance in the title game. No runs. THIRD INNING. t\ ASHINGTON—Johnson took one strike and then raised a looping fly which hit the left-field fence. Barney was guilty of a foolish piece of base running when he turned first and head ed for second. As a result he died when Jackson took Wilson's throw and re layed it to Terry. McNeely beat out a perfect bhnt to , T.indstrom and reached second when Harris scratched a single past Terry'. Lindstrom made a desperate effort to get Rice's foul close to the Washington dugout, but failed. Rice then popped directly In front of the j plate and Gowdy camped undcc It. I Goslin's appearance at bat caused a buzz of comment In the stands, but the best Goose could do was ground out to Frisch on the first ball pitched. No runs. NEW YORK—Jackson was credited with a single when his rap went through Miller to Bluege too late for Ossie to nag him at first. Gowdy swung and missed a third strike. Ruel's snap throw to Judge barely missed Jackson ofl first. Bentley hit the first bhll pitched for a single to right, sending Jackson to third. With a count of two and three on him Lindstrom' fouled an other off, and on the next delivery Lind strom beat out a slow roller to Miller, scoring Jackson and sending Bentley' to •ccond. Frisch mlss<D two swings, fouled one off behind the plate and then rolled to Bluege, whose toss to Miller at third arrived too late to force out Bentley. It was scored as a fielder’s choice. This filled the bags with only one out and brought Y’oUng to the bat. Young lined to Rice and, a double play vas effected when Johnson took Sam's fhmw and threw to Ruel, who tagged 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'FLAHERTY.

BENTLEY OPPOSES JOHNSON IN FIFTH CONTESTOF SERIES McGraw Unable to Use Nehf Against Washington Ace Because of Injury. By the Associated Ptckv POLO GROUNDS, NKW YORK, Oc tober B.—Walter Johnson, veteran star of the Washington pitching staff, oppose*} Jack Bentley. Mo- Graw's great lefthander, in the fifth game of the world series here today. Bentley was McGraw's eleventh-hour selection to pitch today In place of Art Nehf, winner of the first game, who is nursing a sore thumb. An other crowd of approximately 50,000 was In the park to see the last game here before the battleground shifts to Washington for the sixth contest. Bentley retired the Nationals in or der in the first inning, tandstrom making a sensational leaping catch of a line drive >oflT McN'eely for the first out. and the crowd gave John son a terrific ovation as he walked to the box. If the fans were with Washington in the first two games here, it seemed certain they would be even more partial to the American Leaguers with the great pitcher on the mound. The teams meet in Washington to morrow for the sixth game. Before the game starts the ciubowners of the contending teams will meet and loss a coin to decide the place of the seventh game, if such is necessary. To date McGraw has exhibited nine members of his burling staff, all ex cept his youngsters, Huntzinger and Maun. Manager Harris has tried all of his staff except Zahniser and Ogden. After a night of rain the sun came out this morning, and indication were that there would be good weather for the world series game this afternoon. Sostkpswn V Irtorlons. The first four sessions developed into a battle of rights and lefts, with the margin strongly in favor of the southpaw 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. 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 J 248.319.38. Each Giant will draw about 15,731 by win ning or $3,821 by losing. The win ning Nationals’ figure -would be about $6,477 and the losing amount $4 319. In the first inning yesterday it ap peared as If Washington had completely shot its bolt in the first two games and was 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 Ooose 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 Boas Young, the Giant right-fielder, watched it soar into the stands for a home run. McNeely Helps Nats. The lower three of the Nationals’ bat ting order were absolutely powerless, but when Goose appeared there was ac tion.

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 be found to have nearly vanished from the Northwestern and Pacific Coast States. The Democratic strength is being spilt to a large "extent between , La Follette on the one hand and Cool idge on the other, according to the radi- j cal or conservative views held by the j voters. In practically all these States the atmosphere of apathy around Demo- I cratic headquarters is thick enough to J cut with a knife. ‘Little effort, it seeme. 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 v another about ’’progress! vlsm” were ready to enroll, fame 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 Discouraged. 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 nooii nafe McAdoo for the presidency. The Democrats of the Slate spent a large amount of money to help finance his preconvenl lon and convention cam paigns. They have not been willing, so far, to contribute further to the Democratic campaign. The conse quence is that the war chest in this Bute is sadly depicted- Where you see large offices and many workers for La Follette and for Coolidge. there is scarcely a semblance of 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.

"An Investigation has been started in this matter,” the foreign office spokesman said.

Yesterday’* Circulation, 102,918 COOLIDGE PUTS BAN ON AIRMONQPOLY Full Freedom and Control in Interest of Public Aim of Government. Describing radio as one of the most astonishing: developments in the his tory of science and as presenting one of the greatest problems the Gov ernment faces. President Coolidge In a brief address today to delegates attending the third national radio conference gave positive assurance that the Federal Government will prevent any monopoly of the air. Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover had previously assured the delegates at the second general ses sion of the conference at the Depart ment of Commerce this morning that the Government would not sanction a monopoly of the air. The proposal of the Radio Corporation of America to erect a chain of superpower broad casting stations. Mr. Hoover said, has resulted in a deluge of telegrams from over the Nation protesting against any monopoly in the radio industry. Widest Freedom .Sough f. “Control of the air mush be re tained for the public and this control will be closely guarded by the gov ernment of the people,” the President declared. "While we retain the fun damental rights in the hands of the people to the control of these chan nels we should maintain the widest degree of freedom in their use,” he said. The President told his callers that the goal desired is one that will af ford an opportunity for every one to have access to radio communication without limitation. In order to se cure this, he pointed out, it is neces sary that there be rules and regula tions, otherwise there would be such confusion that there never would be any certainty of service. The President’s address was made from the south portico of the White House to his callers assembled in the rear grounds. Almost Incredible Progress, \ His address in full follows: “Your conference has been sum moned by Secretary Hoover to advise with him on the problems involving the relationship of the Government to one of the most astonishing devel opments in the history of science. It seems almost incredible that -within so short a period as four years it has been made possible to communicate simultaneously with practically the whole population of the United States. "In its broad aspects radio is a new agency brought by science to our people which may, if properly safe guarded, become one of the greatest of our blessings. It should render possible a more complete understand ing of our national problems. It should bring to the fireside large con tributions toward entertainment and education. With all its great possi bilities, it is accompanied by a most intricate technology and a most in tricate relationship to the Govern ment. A gal mat Any Monopoly. "The admlnitsration. through Sec retary Hoover, has from the begin ning insisted that no monopoly should be allowed to arise and that- to pre vent It the control of the channels through the ether should remain as much in the hands of the Govern ment, and therefore of the people, as the control of navigation upon our waters; that while we retain the fundamental rights in the hands of the people to the control of these channels we should maintain the widest degree of freedom In their use.

SHENANDOAH RACES ACROSS MISSISSIPPI ON FUGHTTQ 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 Associated I’ress. ABOARD THE L T . S. S. SHENAN DOAH, Alabama-Misslssippi Boundary, October 8. —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. Croixni Mountains Early. Sailing: smoothly at an altitude of 2,500 feet the Shenandoah crossed th( 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 sun rippling in long lines like a new cloud field. Banks of clouds lay heavy' in the valleys, the reddish dirt roads looking like ribbons among the green far below interlacing hill tops and hidden valleys. In some of the scattered homes of 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.
