Yanks Conceded Edge in Four Spots, Giants in Three, Two Even - «---—-—--- --- GEHRIG, HI MAGGIO _ Dopester Thinks Terrymen Have Slightly Better of Slab Argument. BY JOHN LARDNER. NEW YORK, September 30.— What the Cubs of Chicago are doing now is a job on the barn door—locking, bolting, barring, nailing, sealing and reinforcing the edifice from which the horse was stolen some time last week by Wil liam H. Terry and his New York Giants. That’s what the Cubs are doing. The Giants are printing world series tickets. In base ball, you do not hang a horse thief. You hang a pennant over his head instead, and pay his agents $5,000 apiece for their work. The Giants will meet the Yankees In the world series, starting Wednes day, October 6. Cliff Melton, a south paw with the ear-spread of a class J yacht, will pitch the first game for the Giants, and Lefty Gomez, the pride of Aragon and the toast of Cas tile, will work for the Yankees. The Yanks are favored at 7 to 5 for the first game. 2 to 1 for the series. Both managers. Mr. Terry and Mr. Joseph Vincent McCarthy, are opposed to those odds. “I think we'll win," says Mr. Terry. “It's strictly an even thing,” says Mr. McCarthy. A Man-for-Man Analysis. TV’EITHER gentleman Is telling the clean, sweet, unspeckled truth. Both are lying and hoping for the best, and If we want to get an accurate no tion of how the ball clubs compare, we had better do the work ourselves, beginning at the beginning and lining up the players side by side. At first base—There is no contest here. It would be a day's work for Slap-Jack McCarthy of the Giants to carry Gehrig's bat to the plate. McCarthy is fancier afield, but Geh rig's coolness and experience give him the fielding edge for the series. In hitting, it's not an edge that Gehrig has got. it's the drand Canyon of the Colorado. At second base—Tony Lazzeri will out hit Burgess Whitehead, the Giant operative. Tony is rested and strong for this series. It figures to be his last big stand. But defensively, the vote is Whitehead's. He and Bartell are tighter than a drumhead around the bag. They'll shut off runs. All in all, it's a standoff between Mr. Lazzeri and the kid from Phi Beta Kappa, which is somewhere south of Poland. At shortstop—Bartell by a short head, at bat and in the field. The other fellow's name is Frank Cros eetti. He's pretty good. At third base—Here you have a quandary, and a healthy quandary too, all muscle and no fat. Melvin Ott is a promising third baseman. He can slug. Red Rolfe is no slugger, but he hits well in the crises and he'll handle chances at third that might handcuff Ottie. Call it even. In left field—Joe Moore of tire Giants has a slight margin over the combination of Jake Powell and Myril Hoag. It ain’t much of a margin, but such as it is, it's Joseph's, to do with as he pleases. A School For the Giants. TN CENTER field—There are three Giant center fielders, named Leiber, Berger and Chiozza, and one Yankee center fielder, named Joe Di Maggio. This series will be very valuable to Leiber, Berger and Chiozza, educa tionally. All they have to do is watch and learn. In right field—Again the Yankees have a combination, Henrich-Selkirk, against one Giant. Jimmy Ripple. Each Yankee is Ripple's equal, hitting and fielding, and the fact that they can reinforce each other gives the Yankees the advantage here. Catching—Bill Dickey is the best catcher in the series, but the Giant pair, Gus Mancuso and Harry Dan ning. is not to be sneezed at. This is fair warning to sneezers.' They won’t stand for it. Pitching—In a way, the pitching department is as important as all the other departments combined. The Giants have a two-man staff for series purposes, Melton and Hubbell. Schu macher might win, but I wouldn't bet on it. The Yanks have three good workmen, Gomez, Ruffing and Pear son. Gomez probably is the best pitcher in either camp, just now. In spite of all of which, I give the I His Name Is No Misnomer Greyhound, the “grey ghost” of harness racing, speeding to his world trotting mark at Lexington, Ky., yesterday. He stepped the mile in 1:56 to cut % second off the old record. _—Copyright, A. P. Wirephoto. “POPP/NG OFPSian Checking Up on the Series Heroes. IT BEGINS to look as If our Jacob Powell will not be available to defend his title as the hero of modem Yankee-Giant world series warfare and people are wondering, more or less, naturally, who will succeed the Silver Spring kangaroo. For one thing, Powell is battling a painful case of sinus and, to be blunt about a second item, Powell just isn't good enough to play regularly on the Yankees when Messrs. Joe Di Maggio, George Selkirk, Tommy Henrich and Myril Hoag are in good health. Jakey went into the world series a year ago armed with a nicely developed ego. a stunted imagination and a bat and a glove. On all sides the BOY WHO NEVER GREW UP was surrounded by names that were ten times as famous as his own. On the Yankees there were Gehrig and Di Maggio Lazzeri and Gomez, Dickey and Ruffing. The Giants had a few nonentities named Hubbell and Tern-, Ott and Bartell. But when the curtain rose on the 1936 subway series Powell stepped into the spotlight and when it rang down Jakey still was taking bows. Who will the hero be this year? Can Cliff Melton pitch in the “money league" as he pitches in the National? ♦—-— -- v-nu me ngiug nuuueii wun r.ne iong pants check the thunder in the Yan kee bats? Can Gehrig win the plaudits of the mob. Or Gomez or Ruffing? Nobody, of course, knows the answer at the moment. But— History reveals that pitchers most frequently are the men of the hour in world series struggles, that second basemen are next, and that in the 33 previous series shortstops, centerfleld ers and catchers have basked less in the popularly recognized limelight than any other kind of ball player. Recalling the Old Boys. JT DEVELOPS the Helms-Olympic Athletic Foundation has dipped into the yellowed, mellowed and musty files to check on world series stand outs. The foundation lists one Mr. William H. Dinneen, who may be re called now as an umpire, as the first hero for it seems he pitched and won three games for the Red Sox against Pittsburgh in 1903 by scores of 3-0, 6-3 and 3-0. Old-timers may remember some of Giants the call here. They may give it right back to me. As for relief pitching, each club has an able hand—Johnny Murphy for the Yanks and Dick Coffman for the Giants. That's a draw. These man-for-man statistics1 show the Yankees superior in four posi tions, the Giants in three (including pitching), and the two teams even in the other two spots. It doesn’t mean a great deal. It's simply the first step in the doping of the series. There will be lots of further doping before next Wednesday. But just to relieve the suspense, which must be getting pretty painful, I will hint here and now that the better club is the one owned by a certain promi nent beer manufacturer, who must re main nameless, but whose friends call him Jake. (Copyright. 1P37. by the North American Newspaper Alliance, Ine.) ========== the heroes. There was Matty and Jack Combs. Rawlings and Steinfeldt, Baker and Lewis, Hooper and Gowdy. If memory is good, George Rohe's third basing in 1906 for the White Sox may be recalled. Hehna-Olympic, etc., unveils the hurlers as top series men. Of the 33 series played, lapsing into cold statistics. 10 pitchers have been nominated as series standouts. Dinneen in 1903, to be sure, and after the series was dropped for a year up rose Christy Mathewson in 1905 to win three games in six days from the Phillies . . . and all by shutouts! Not until 1909 did another pitcher steal the show and then along came Charley Adams of the Pirates to win three games from the Tigers. In 1910 Oombs hung up the same number of wins against the Cubs. Horace Eller, who won both of the games he pitched for Cincinnati against the White Sox, was the next Helms-Olympic hero. He came in i 1919, nine years apart from Combs, but the following year the pedestal held another hurler in Stanley Cov eleskle of Cleveland, who pitched and won three 5-hit games against the Dodgers. Alex Won't Be Forgotten. J^OUR more pitchers were destined a. to Join this group. In 1926 there was old Grover Alexander and behind his ascension to the throne for a year lies probably the best of the series stories. Alex, you knoar, already had won two games In the series between the Car dinals and Yankees that year. On the afternoon of the last game Alex ambled unsteadily to the bull-pen. He had won the sixth game of the series, tying it, and old Alex was supposed to have done a little celebrating. So It came that Jess Haines, the Card starter In the final game, got into serious trouble in the eighth inning. The Yankees loaded the bases. Two were out and Tony Laz zeri was at bat. Rogers Hornsby, who was managing the Cards, called time and waved to the bull-pen. A young hurler who had been warming up started for the box. Alex was sprawled on a bench, so the story goes, and sleeping It off. "Send that old bum out here,-’ grated Hornsby, according to listeners, and. Griffs’ Records BATTING. . G. Ab. R.

Anacostia Eagles, 150-pound grid ders, want action. Call Lincoln 5086-J between 6 and 7 p.m. Alexander stumbled out, hitching up his trousers. You know, of course, what hap pened. Alex read off the script of a Hollywood movie lot. He struck out Lazaeri and carried on to hold the Yanks hitless and runless until the Cards wort. Bucky One of Second Sackers. ^FTER Alex the next pitching hero was George Eamshaw of the A’s, in 1930. For his brilliant work in the 1933 series against Washington, Long Pants Hubbell was given the halo. And in 1934 Paul Dean <yeah, Paul) was the Helms-Olympic hero. That was the Fall that Detroit lost to the Cards. Frank Chance and Lou Gehrig are the only first basemen to rank on the list. Chance was the big gun in the 1908 series between the Cubs and Ti gers and Gehrig was the man of the hour in 1932—a matter of 24 years apart. Five second basemen have stood out in the series. Eddie Collins did it twice—in 1913 and again in 1917—for the A's and for the White Sox. John Rawlings of the Giants emerged from the 1921 battle with the Yankees as the hero and there was Aaron Ward of the Yanks in 1923, and a fellow by the name of Bucky Harris in 1924. Bucky's heroics in that Wash - in*ton-Giants series have been overlooked from time to time. After all, Muddy Ruel’s first hit, a double, did lead to the run that won the championship. And old Walter Johnson finally won a series game. But Harris it was who made 11 hits in 33 times at bat for a .333 average, who scored the winning run in the fourth game, whose hitting and field ing were the deciding factors in the sixth game, and whose three hits, including a home run, had something to do with the Nats’ 4-to-3 win in the final skirmish. Di Maggio Is Players’ Choice. J-JARRY HOOPERS work in 1912 and 1916 won two niches in the series’ hall of fame. Hooper was a right fielder, and so were Kiki Cuyler, Babe Ruth and Bing Miller, who also were named. Left fielders to make the Helm-Olymplc list were Duffy Lewis, George Whiteman, Goose Gos lin and Powell. Third basemen were four—Rohe. Steinfeldt, Home Run Ba ker and Heinie Groh. The only shortstop to make the grade was Mark Koenig in 1927, when he played for the Yanks against Pitts burgh, and was instrumental in vic tory. The only catcher was Hank Gowdv, when he played for the Braves in 1914 against the Athletics and then decided to pick up a gun and go to war. And the only center fielder on the list is Pepper Martin, whose feats in the 1931 series against the A’s and Mickey Cochrane, are recalled as easi ly as the deeds of Powell and Hubbe.l a year ago. The tip is out among Ameri can ball players that a center fielder may steal the show this year. They mean Joe Di Maggio. Up to now Di Mag has played in hard luck in All-Star and series clashes. They figure that the law of averages and Jolting Joe's ability will remedy mat ters in the future. And Isn't that logical enough? Several Nats in Shaky Posts As Club Closes Home Season After Double Loss to Bosox BY FRANCIS E. STAN. HEY were to ring down the curtain on the Washington base ball firm today at the stadium, and as far as the local trade directly is concerned, a year of weighty disappointments, was to wind up and blend into an off season of prospective rebuilding plans and moves. With the Red Sox as the opposition, Bucky Harris’ Nats were to make their last stand at Mr. G.'s ballyard in a double-header. When it was over the 1937 Griffs were due to head for a final series in Philadelphia and thence home. And the chances are that you won’t be seeing several of them next year. Joey Kuhel, for instance, probably is wearing a National uniform for the last/time. So may be A1 Simmons. Buddy Myer definitely is not an 8 to-5 bet to return. Whether such as Fred Sington, Ed Linke, Syd Cohen, Pete Appleton and a few others will be working for Mr. Griffith is a spec ulative topic. Anyway, today is the end of major league base ball in Washington for another year. The Nats, picked by many to run in the first division and by a few even to win the pennant, are destined for sixth place, two notches under their 1936 standing. The team that was to have been better was weaker. That probably is the simplest way to say it. Never Hit a .500 Pace. TT IS whispered that next year Jimmy Wasdell or Zeke Bonura, now with the White Sox, will play first base for Washington. It is said that Sim mons will go or gracefully accept an astounding salary and serve as a utility outfielder. They gossip, even, that Myer may play for Chicago in 1937. As they bow out, the Griffs are no more proud of themselves than their severest critics. Here and there pleas antries were recorded. By now, for instance, it is established that Buddy Lewis is a confirmed major league star and Cecil Travis is something more than an average hitter. Johnny Stone still is going strong, after a decade in the American League, and rookies like Joe Krakauskas, Ken Chase and Ray Phebus promise much for 1937. But, as a whole, the Nats just did not have it this year. Not once during the campaign did they play at the pace expected over any decent stretch. Their longest winning streak easily was voided by a 10-game losing streak during the middle of the season. Washington never reached a .500 per centage from start to finish. Lose Twin Bill to Sox. J?VEN the Griffs’ old hex over the Red Sox has been broken. Thanks chiefly to the Bostons, our side re mained In the league, but yesterday the Sox rose and made off with a double-header, 3-1 and 7-4. It didn't hurt much, of course, because the Nats have been numb for some time. If the double defeat proved anything it was that this season is lasting four days too long. If anybody is interested, Washing ton made 12 hits off Lefty Grove in the first game yesterday and got one run—in the last inning. The Nats were great hands at putting men on the bases, but they folded like acccx dions once the boys on the bags had been moved into scoring position. Meanwhile the Sox were doing as well as possible against the eight-hit pitching that Jimmy De Shong tossed up. In the third Fabian Gaffke hit a home run with nobody on base to give Grove a lead he never lost. In the seventh Jimmy Foxx led off with a triple and later acored to make It 2-0. In the ninth Foxx opened with a double and counted with the last Red Sox run. Singles by Wasdell and Jimmy Bloodworth opened the Nats’ ninth. Eventually Wasdell scored to avert Washington's second shutout In as many days. Some Nats on Way Home. 'J'HE less said of the nightcap the better. The Nats committed three of their five errors in the first Inning and these boots, together with four Red Sox hits off Feta Appleton, gave Boston a 4-to-0 lead that was never lost. Appleton was yanked after the Sox went ahead, 5-0, in the second in ning. Thereafter Rookie Arnold An derson did the Washington throwing. The big boy scattered five hits over the last seven innings and gave up two runs. The Griffs succeeded in driving Rookie Jim Henry, who started for Boston, from the box. That was in the fifth inning, when they pulled up to 5-4. But Johnny Marcum came to the rescue and Buddy Myer's single in the ninth Inning was the only hit they got off Marcum in the last four and one-third innings. Some of the Nats already are home ward bound. Melo Almada, who has a bad leg, has been granted permis sion to go home, and so has Krakaus kas. After he pitches today Wes Fer rell probably will leave, too. Major Leaders By the Associated Press. AMERICAN LEAGUE. Batting — Gehringer, Tigers. .374; Gehrig. Yankees. .361.
