WASHINGTON, D. C., WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 6, 1937: ' 11' ■'
Uncertain Weather Threatening Record Gate for World Series SMALLER OPENING THAN IN 1936 SEEN Giants Will Win if Melton Stays in His “Trance,” Declares Hubbell. CBY GAYLE TALBOT. Associated Press Sports Writer. EW YORK. October 6.—This is the gigantic day, barring fire or flood, when all normal activities cease for a couple of hours in the afternoon and the mortality rate among grandmothers leaps out of sight. The simple, ungarnished truth is that the New York Giants of Harlem Bnd the New York Yankees of the Bronx are meeting at 1:30 p.m. in the latter's handsome, commodious park in the first game of the world series. The weather has been threatening complications, just as it did last year, but the forecast today was for cloudy weather and showers in the morning, possibly clearing toward afternoon. If the rain of last night should continue long today, however, the clubs' hopes for a record gate may be knocked into a cocked hat. Although practically all the re served seats have been sold, the pros pect of a sellout crowd of 70,000 de pends entirely upon how many cus tomers turn up to buy unreserved grandstand seats at $3.30 and the bleacher places at $1.10. About 30,000 of these were to go on sale at 9 a m. Best advance indications put the crowd between 30,000 and 60,000. somewhat short of the record of 69.669 the same clubs set last year, when the Yankees won four out of six games. Hot Slab Duel Promised. 'T'HE cynosure of all eyes today, de pending upon the fortunes of battle, was expected to be either Carl Hubbell, the Oklahoma apple-knocker, who always pitches first world series games for the Giants, or Vernon <E1 Goofy) Gomez of California, to whom Manager Joe McCarthy has intrusted the Yankees’ fortunes. rney promisee—mese iwo new new Yorkers—to wage a homeric struggle. They are the greatest pitchers in their leagues. Hubbell. one of the great pitchers of all time, known as the "Meal Ticket,” silenced the Yankees’ Big Berthas in the first game last year. Gomez, seven years younger than his mound rival and twice as eccentric, didn’t work for the Yanks until the second game of the 1936 series. But he won two games. Right down to the wire, the Yankees have been stanch favorites to win again, even though everybody, in cluding Manager McCarthy of the Yankees, has admitted that the Giants are greatly improved over last season. They are stronger at third base and at first base, and they have a new left-handed pitcher in Cliff Melton, who might stand the Yankees on their collective heads. They are such a smart fielding team that an estab lished slugger like Wally Berger can't even break into today's line-up be cause his throw-ins from center field leave something to be desired. Put Trust in Sluggers. YET' you think all that has made 1 A the slightest impression on either the Yankees or their followers, you haven’t been reading your lessons. They worship the base hit, preferably the home run, and they don’t think that a carload of Hubbells and Mel tons could fool Joe Di Maggio, Lou Gehrig. Bill Dickey, George Selkirk and the other mighty men for long— not for seven games, anyhow. There’s no use in trotting out columns of comparative figures against that brand of reasoning. For the Giants’ supporters, it's simply a case of holding their breaths every time Hubbell or Melton or Hal Schumacher winds up. If they can puzzle the latest edition of "murderers’ row,” the Giants, naturally, have an excellent chance of winning. If they can't, it’s Just too bad. In practice the last two days the Giants have not looked too promising. They had difficulty knocking balls out of the infield in yesterday's batting drill at the stadium. The Yanks, at the same time, were putting large dents in the Polo Grounds balustrades. The “Big Three" of the Giants' mound staff—Hubbell, Melton and Hal Schumacher—looked very impressive, though. Hubbell Is Relaxed. “TF CLIFF just stays in his trance we ought to win this thing," Hub bell commented as he watched Melton cavorting around, displaying a mouth ful of teeth. "I hope nobody tells him this is a world series.” At that, the long, loose-jointed mountaineer who will pitch for the Giants tomorrow looks about as tight and tense as a man getting ready for a Sunday school picnic. If he is at. all worried about the Yankees’ threat to pin back his prominent ears, he isn't showing any signs. Asked for his pre aeries reactions, he only grinned a yard wide and said: ‘‘Ask Bill.” That means Bill Terry, who manages the Giants—and there’s no question about it. Anything that any Giant does in the next seven days you can bet he got the high sign from Col. Terry first. Where McCarthy rules with a comparatively loose rein, Terry Is boss of the Giants from the word “go.” A news photographer asked one of the Giants yesterday if he and some of his teammates would pose in front of the dugout. The player couldn’t see Terry, who had been delayed down town by a conference with Judge Lan dis. “I’m sorry,” he said, "but I guess you’d better wait until ‘de lawd’ gets here.” And there the matter rested. .. • HGHTING IN CHICAGO.

MINOR LOOP TITLE at sinn Newark and Columbus Take Turn About in Winning Three Straight. By the Associated Press. COLUMBUS, Ohio, October 6.— The surprising little world series between the Columbus Red Birds and Newark's Bears was right back where it started to day, all even, and more than $4,000 worth of chips were down on the out come of the seventh and deciding con test tonight. The Birds, American Association champs, swept the three-game series at Newark, and then the Bears, Inter national loop pennant winners by a 25’ 2-game margin, allowed the Birds a total of two runs in taking the three contests here. In the last three games the Bears outscored the Birds 19 to 2, last night's count being 10 to 1. Beggs Opposes Potter. $22,269.50 players' pool, poured into the coffers in the first four , games, will be split on a 60-40 basis ! with the winner taking the heavy end. I There’s a difference of $4,453.70, and tonight's clash decides who gets the extra bit. Determined to make it four in a1 row, Manager Oscar Vitt of the Bears nominated Joe Beggs, tall righthander, I to face the Birds tonight. Burt Shotton, hoping for a come back, decided to send Nelson Potter, drafted last night by the Philadelphia Athletics, to the mound. ckisox seeYnTnth IN ROW OVER BRUINS Have Swept Last Two Series, but Face Unusual Situation in Being 1937 Choices.

PAOLI, Pa., October 6 UP).—Lang don Lea. former All-America foot ball star at Princeton and father of three Princeton ends, died here last night. He was 63 years old. "POPP/NG OFFStwL. Just Before the Battle Stuff. Special Dispatch to The Star. NEW YORK, October 6.—A sharp chill wind was sweeping across the field at Yankee Stadium and Giants who were not waiting in line at the batting practice cage or shagging flies in the outfield bundled in sweaters. There must have been less than half a dozen newspaper guys watching the final practice of the National League champions and none of them was having difficulty in restraining their enthusiasm. ‘ Poof!” Poofed one of the ink-stained kibitzers, watching Burgess White head take a terrific cut and nudge one of batting practice pitcher Don Bren nan's pitches over the infield. ‘‘Poof, and ain’t they lousey? Why, those poor guys haven't a chance. For 20 minutes I’ve been standing here and Mel Ott s the only hitter to reach the right-field bleachers. Matching them with the Yankees is like throwing a bantamweight fighter against a heavyweight. Why . . ‘‘Lissen” interrupted Mr. Roland Logan, who is the trainer of the Red Sox, ‘‘I am a dyed-in-the-wool American leaguer, as you know, but I gotta give credit where it is due. Over*---—-— there,” he pointed magnanimously, "is a pretty fair left-handed pitcher.” "Over there,” of course, was where Carl Hubbell was preparing to quit a pepper game. Carl came saunter I I ing over with a slow smile on his face and somebody wanted to know what lie thought of the series. "If we can keep Melton in his trance,” dryly answered Hubb, "we've got a chance.” Just then a gigantic pair of ears popped out of the runway and Mr. Melton hove into sight. "Hully gee,” yelped one of the news papermen who had never seen Moun tain Music Melton close up, "he really looks like he's in a trance, doesn't he? One of those big Carolina moun tain guys, he is, and it's written all over him.” "He can pitch, though,” cautioned Hubbell, which is praise from Caesar, Indeed. "If he does what I think he can do. we may win over the Yanks this time.” Mr. Schacht Is Modest. BY THIS time the Giants began to move off the field and the big stadium was deserted except for a tew scattered hangers-on with more time than anything else on their hands. Mr. Logan, who is called Doc. began to grow nervous and finally, when A1 Schacht came walking toward him, Doc said: “I might as well confess, fel lows. I’m sinking to a new low. Guess what I'm gonna do? Stooge for Schacht during the series.” Mr. Schacht, with a 40-pound catch er's glove, a bird cage and a few other weird implements, made a modest ap proach. “You will see the great Schacht at his funniest this series, boys,” he advised. “Get out early. This is the first time I’ve ever re hearsed, so you can see how seriously I’m preparing to be funny.” At that moment there was a commo tion in one of the dugouts. One of the figures on the scene was Mr. Will Terry, the Giants’ cheerless leader. One of the writing boys caught Mr. Terry off guard and saw Will muster a smile. It was too much for him, he said later, and so he swooned. A CROSS the river the Yankees were 'r*‘ practicing in the Polo Grounds. A larger crowd was on hand and ac tivity was a good deal brisker. An insignificant little man with a weather beaten face and tough, gnarly hands was attracting some attention and it developed he was Joe Di Maggio, sr. He came from the coast to see his Giusseppe hit one. A young, dark-haired man was at tracting a good deal of attention, too. He was Mickey Cochrane, who was telling of his trip to Europe. Mickey ; reached home the day before on the Queen Mary. And was admiringly watching the Bronx Bombers tee off. Somebody mentioned Ott and asked Mickey if he thought the Yankees would bunt on Mel, who is now a third baseman. ' Why should they?” asked Mickey. “Why bunt when a fellow always has a chance to knock the ball over the fence?” That seemed to answer the question pretty well. Later in the afternoon the main body of the out-of-town series army marched into Gotham. Clark Griffith led a battalion from Washington and was looking very secretive. Mr. G. Discloses Plans. “ JUST between us,” disclosed Mr. G., “I am trying to get a pitcher in the draft. Name's Leonard from Atlanta, and he's pretty good. A knuckle-bailer.” Somebody wanted to know Leonard's first name. "By sin.” said Griff, as if he ever knew a ball player's first name, “I don’t know. I know this much about him, though,” he con fessed, blushingly, “he used to be with Brooklyn. Yeah, you got it . . . Dutch Leonard. Only he isn’t the old, original Dutch Leonard.” Choosing a strange moment to ex ploit the crime, Brooklyn announced a trade whereby Jimmy Bucher, Joe Stripp, Roy Henshaw and Johnny Cooney were sent to the Cardinals in exchange for Lippy Durocher, who talks loudly but hit lightly. At the proper time the deal would have made much talk and many headlines but people were too busy thinking of the series to bother. “Maybe,” wagged one of the writing boys, “that's what the Brooklyns wanted to do . . . sort of make the deal on the sneak. Pour for one. That's giving away a lot of ball players, even if they are liberty leaguers.” When darkness began to fall, Griff and his fellow-magnates trotted off to the draft meeting and the newspaper men began to bat out their copy so they could line up at the free bar established by Col. Jacob Ruppert and imbibe far into the night. The Giants and Yankees went to bed. or were supposed to go, and 70,000 prospective customers contemplated the drizzling rain and wondered if the series was going to start all wet, as it did last year. This was the day before the curtain went up on the big show. Sports Program For Local Fans TOMORROW. Wrest I in*.

I JOHN* BOXING BOSSES HOT AT IT Promoter Charges New York Board Has Interest in 20th Century Club. Fj the Associated Press. NEW YORK. October 6.—A pair of noted verbal warriors, Jimmy Johnston, former di rector of boxing at Madison Square Garden, and chairman John J. Phelan of the New York State Athletic Commission, are at it again. And this time a general overhauling of the commission may be the result if Johnston carries out his threats. After a stormy meeting yesterday, at which Johnston confirmed that, he was quoted correctly in an Associated Press story September 20 in which he said Phelan and Commissioner Bill Brown “must have a personal interest in the Twentieth Century Club.” Johnston’s attorney, Newbold Morris, issued a statement in which he said he would call upon the Governor for an investigation of the commission. Hot Words Fly. JIMMY and Phelan had quite a wrangle when Johnston said he had proof the commission has an in terest in the Twentieth Century Club. “Get that into the records,” Phelan shouted to the stenographer. “He said we had a financial interest in the Twentieth “I didn't say financial. I said per sonal,” Johnston yelled back. "Let me see what you’re putting in those records.” “We'll take care of the records,” answered the chairman. “That's what I’m afraid of,” replied Jimmy in a parting quip. He later said a good deal more out side the meeting and Attorney Mor ris gave out his statement, approved by Johnston, in which he said: "I will head an organization to call on the Governor to undertake a sweeping reorganization of the State Boxing Commission, in the same thorough fashion that he overhauled the State Racing Commission. This would givte the followers of boxing a new deal.” JACOBS CONTROLS FARR.

Difficult to Figure Which Most Likely Are to Go in Current Classic. Ejf the Associated Press. NEW YORK, October 6.—Gen erally, world series records, like the last button holding the suspenders, are likely to go any time, or may hold indefinitely. In pre-series calculatioas, there's no way of figuring out just which marks are in for eclipse. The answers al ways are wrong. For instance, no one foresaw the bombardment with which the Yanks last year wiped out whole pages of series batting and run making records that had stood for 10 years or more. Attendance Marks Feeblest. rJ"HIS year, the marks most likely to be outdone by the Yankees and Giants are the "highs'' for attendance and gate receipts which they get a year ago.
