BILL A I JOE
TO DO BATTLE Playing-Managers to Lead Clubs in World Series BY ALAN GOULD NEW YORK, Sept. 20.—(^P)—For the first time since 1906, the Amer ican and National league rivals for Jgthe “world baseball championship" ^ooth will be directed on the field by player managers. There have been a number o! player pilots since then, of course, on one side of the battleground or the other but William Harold Terry of the Giants and Joseph Cronin of the Senators will be the first pair to combine master-minding and personal exploits in the world aeries since fielder Jones led the Chicago White flox to triumph over Prank Chance’s Cubs. The Senators expect history to repeat itself. Cronin carries the Washington banner into the cham pionship fray where “Bucky” Har ris, then the “boy wonuer,’’ left off as the pilot of the pennant-winning Benators of 1924-25. They whipped the world champion Yankees. They expect to “take” the Giants. Terry is Boss Giant rooters have faith in Terry, as John McGraw’s successor, for the reason that he has already achieved the supposingly "impossi ble” by bringing the club home in front this year after being picked to finish no better than sixth. “Memphis Bill” himself thought at the outset he would be lucky to land in the first division and third place was the best he hoped for. “But once we got the idea we could win, why we simply couldn’t Jose,” laughed Terry when I talked with him during the Giants’ tri jumphant final tour of the wfest. $.“You can say we have won because we built up the greatest four-man pitching staff in either league ana you would be correct. You can say we got a lot of breaks and that’s right too. But the big thing to me is that every man on this club get out there, day after day, and played his head off. We forced a lot of those breaks because we refused to be licked/’ Terry and Cronin both are great hitters. Defensively they are the class of their positions, in either big league. They have the knack of setting the pace or producing the hits that count the most. Oth erwise they are radically different personalities. Griff Aids Cronin I As ball players go Terry is a ~ veteran, while Oronin is in his v prime. Bill will be 35 in October and Joe 27 the same month. Cronin was born in San Francisco, Terry in Atlanta. 1 Terry is in absolute charge of the Giants on the field. He takes orders from no one when it comes to tactics, choice of pitchers or shifts in the lineup. When he re placed McGraw, he determined to be the “boss,” so that he could sink of swim on his own responsibility. His success has given him clearer rfpfte to command than ever. (Jronin, soft-spoken and less dynamic than his rival, has acquir ed a thorough linowledge of base ball and shown he can apply it. However, the Senators’ field boss has behind him the advice and counsel of one of the game's shrewdest strategists, Clark Grif fith. The president of the Washing ton club was a famous manager and pitcher in his day. He is still the ■ “old fox” and the man behind the senatorial guns. If there is any heavy thinking or weighty decisions to be made “Griff” makes them.

FULLERTON, Jr. william Harold Terry, the sturdy young man from Memphis who took over the management of the New York Giant* a year ago when John McGraw retired, led his club back home from the west COACHES TELL BEAR STORIES Grid Association Reflects Officials in Meat At Mercedes (Special to The Herald) MERCEDES, Sept. 20. — Helen Morgan, piano and all, would not have had a chance in the blues singing competition staged by the Valley football coaches at their first meeting of the season here Tuesday night. Among the most doleful notes rendered were those contributed by Don (No Felt) Johns of Raymond ville, A1 Weir of McAllen, ‘'Mule” Brown of San Benito and Dutch Rektorik of Harlingen. Johns’ theme song was a throaty ballad concerning 17 graduations, three regulars back but all ineligi ble, best player out with a broken arm and second best player quit the squad. “I'm Only Asking for Sympathy,” was the title of John’s selection. The coaches wiped away their tears long enough to re-elect their officials—Jack York, president; A1 Weir, vice president; and O. I. Cox, secretary-treasurer. Most of the time was devoted to tall bear stories and filling out of schedules. The session was well attended. The second meeting will be held next Tuesday at Mercedes. Beer Distributors Get Phone Number 32 (Special to Tt ’ Herald) SAN BENITO. Sept. 20. — The telephone number three-two has been obtained by the Alexander Marketing Co., for the sale of Schott’s Highland beer, according to Louis S. Witte, manager. “And the beer contains every bit of 3.2 alcohol,” Witte said. Schott’s is one of the oldest breweries on the continent, having been established at Highland, HI., in 1853. It was established there to take advantage of the under ground caverns for aging purposes and Highland is the only beer aged in caves in the United States. All the old famous beers were aged un derground, Witte said, giving them mellowness. Alexander Marketing Co. has distribution for Cameron, Hidalgo and Willccy counties for both keg and bottled beer. Valley salesmen have been em ployed. They are Glen Goolsby LeRoy Crawford, J. T. Cawley and Clayton Gunn. Although the beer did not go on sale until It was legal, last Friday, it is enjoying wide popularity. WEATHER !

Meanwhile the Washington Ben* ators, who were believed to have sewed up the American league championship while the surprising Oiants were still regarded as an uncertain quantity, were marking time along the penant trail, need ing two more decisions for them or against the New York Yankees to clinch the other place in the world’s series. The Giants settled the National league race yesterday—or rather had it settled for them when the Phillies knocked their last rivals, the Pittsburgh Pirates, out of the running. Knowing they were “in" from the second inning on, the Giants went down to a 12 to 3 de feat at the hands of the St. Louis Cardinals. But they could afford to lose that game and all the nine others left on their schedule after the Pirates dropped a 3-2 decision in the second game of a double header. No Chance to Lose After beating the Phils 2 to 1 behind Larry French’s steady pitching in the opener for their 82nd victory of the season, the Buccos took their 65th defeat when the Phils put on an eighth inning rally for two rims. They have seven more to play but if thpy win them ali the best percentage they can reach is .578. The Giants, with 88 won and 55 lost so far, can drop nine more and still have a .579 mark. The American league race tight ened up meanwhile as the Sen ators, with a chance to clinch the pennant right in front of them, lost their second straight game to the St- Louis Browns. 4 to 0, when Dick Coffman allowed the league leaders oniv six hits. The New York Yankees did their part toward staying in the race by overwhelm ing the Chicago White Sox, 10-1 and 10-3. They combined 17-hit attacks in each game with air tight pitching by George Uhle and Charley Devens. This reduced the Senators’ lead from nine to 7 1-2 games but didn’t make any serious difference in the pennant race as two victories in their remaining eight games still will win the flag for Washington even if the Yanks take all of the nine they have left. Big Welcome The Giants, who couldn’t even draw a big crowd on their own home grounds early In the season, had a big welcoming party ahead of them at the end of their home ward journey as champions with a parade through town to the city hall for an official greeting as the climax tomorrow morning. It was all the warmer, perhaps, because the team which won the 13th pen nant for a New York National league club, thus equalling the major league record made by the Chicago Cubs last year, was one which fooled the experts and the fans alike in taking the title. Outside of the games which had a direct bearing on the pennant faces, there was little of import ance in yesterday’s major league program. Jimmie Fcxx took a place in the spotlight as he wal loned his 46th home run of the season to help the Philadelphia Athletics beat Detroit 5 to 2. Bill Weber of Boston also did some serious clouting, contributing two doubles and a triple to the Red Sox's 4-3 triumph over the Cleve land Indians. Another Bostonian, Ed Brandt of the Braves, turned in a four hit flinging performance to give his club a 3-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The Brooklyn Dodgers had a field day at bat with three Chicago aces, Lon War neke, Bud Tinnim; and Charley Root as their victims, and shel lacked the Cubs 12 to 3.

Hurling to Decide Issue Between Padres And Pels •AN ANTONIO, Tex., Sept. 20. (/T)—The San Antonio Missions, Tex as league baseball champions for the first time since 1908, will enter the Dixie Series here tonight against New Orleans, Southern as sociation champions. The Pels just won a playoff with Memphis and the Missions sur vived s Texas league playoff with four clubs Involved. The Missions played to 7,900 paid admissions in the final game here that brought the title. More than 2,000 seats have been placed in right field for this series, in creasing the capacity to 10,000. The seats were erected by tearing down the right field fence and appro priating part of the street behind right field. The series apparently will sim mer down to pitching. Both clubs are known as “money” clubs, and both are the "big inning” type on offensive playB. Either will make runs, and the question of winning will stand squarely on the shoulders of pitchers. San Antonio was expected to start Fabian Kowaiik, ace right hander who won 24 games this year. Kowaiik won 15 of his last 17 starts, and won three straight in the Texas league playoffs. But five runs were .scored off him in three games. The Missions will follow with Wiltse and Miller here, and probably come back with Kowaiik again on Sunday in New Orleans. Walkup, White and Con lan were ready for relief duty. New Orleans was expected to start Andy Messenger, old time San Antonio player, tonight in an ef iort to open the series with a vic tory. The Missions were centered on stopping the hitting of Eddie Mor gan, right hand swatter who de lights in hitting outside balls to right field. The short right field here was made to order for Mor gan, who gained fame hitting home runs over Cleveland’s short fence In the old park. AMERICAN LEAGUE Won. Lost. Pet.

Doty was paired with 8. W. Patrick of Edinburg in the doubles competition and defeated Clair Hudson of Weslaco, also a member of the Edinburg Junior College championship team early this year, and Kim Harty, McAllen High School tennis coach. The score in the playoff match was 8-6, 8-6, 6-0. Hudson’s partner, Jack Jones of Weslaco, was unable to participate and Karty substituted for him. Doty beat Hudson, the 1932 Val ley champion, by a score of G-3, 6-1 in the semi-finals, and defeated Norman Schrager of Edinburg in the finals to win the title. The championship match scores were 6-4, 3-6, 6-4, 6-1. Schrager, althougn participating in the finals for the first time, played determined and beady tennis in bowing to the powerful Doty. The new doubles champions re ceived a silver cup each and Doty was awarded another silver cup as singles champion. The playoffs were delayed for two weeks because of the hurricane. Eagles Working For First Game The Brownsville Eagles may net be the biggest or smartest squad in the Valley, but the more Coach Ben Brite sees of his Fledglings the better he likes them. The 32 youngsters, led by five returning lettermen, are smacking away in scrimmages in a fashion which bedes no good for the oppo sition. The Eagles have a spirit which should carry them far. The problem confronting Coach Brite is to get some seasoning un der the green sauad’s belt before the opening contest here Oct. 6 with the San Benito Greyhounds. The Eagles have already been given a few plays which they are running off a single-wingback formation. All things considered, the Eagles should stack up as a sizeable team in oompansion with other Valley aggregations. Tire club is expected to average around 140 pounds to the player. Local Labor For Valley Work Urged (Special to The Herald) 8AN BENITO, Sept. 20.—Recom mendations thet local labor be giv en preference on reconstruction jobs were voiced again today by Mgr. J. E. Bell of the chamber of commerce. The more jobs given to out-of the-Valley labor, the less quickly will this section recover from the effects of the storm, Mr. Bell said. It will mean more local people de pending on relief agencies if out siders get jobs while Valley resi dents go jobless, he declared. Hundreds of outsiders have come to this section bidding for jobs which should go to local people, he stated. Various agencies are trying to hold these back but many come here in spite of their efforts. and Jack Doss of Austin, veteran trial h«*e, is well balanced, offer ing everything from sluggers to olever boxers. Resemtion* are now on s&l« at the Batten-Wells Sport ing Goods store. Cabler is bearing down hard in an attempt to get back into top condition in time for his battle with Doss. The Brownsville boxer went eight rounds with Manuel Zermeno, one of the beet middle weights in Mexico, recently and found that his condition was none too good. Doss is due back In the Valley after headlining a card at Corpus Christi. The veteran is anxious to even accounts with Cabler who once won a t.k.o. over him In five heats. The six rounders, five of them, are expected to supply some of the liveliest scrapping on the card. Soldier Jack Burns, the best of the current crop at Ft. Brown, is elated to tie into a Luling slugger by the name of K. O. Brown. Charley Delgado of Brownsville and “Gorilla” Morales of Laredo will likely put on a heated scrap. They are fast, clever bantams. Cole It Victor (Special to The Herald) McALLEN, Sept. 20.— Thanks largely to a 17 stroke handicap, Bethel Cole of Donna won the “depression” tournament here Suu<* day. The Donnaite shot 41-39—80, and his 17 handicap gave him a 63. Dickie Turner, Charley Turner and A. L. Hart tied for the second and third place prices. Each card ing net 75s. Their gross cards were 79, 87 and 93 respectively.
