WN OPENER FOR THE GIANTS Washington's 8th Innins Surge Comes as Hubbell Begins to Tire But the Giants Clean up 4 to 2. By HENRY McLEMORE United Pre.t Staff Correspondent NEW YORK. Oct. 4.— (UP) Blazing them down the slot with all the speed and rhythm of the past masters, lean, lanky. " looking Carl Hubbell pitched the New York Giants to a 4 to - - tory over the Washington Sena tor. in the first game of the wo" d series at the Polo Grounds ye$A out there on the mound. difWing his toe plate in the same red clay that serve Christy Mathewson. Art Nehf and other Naw York immortals, Carl whipped that left arm back and forth with the power and grace of a bull whip. . . "Sss-s-wish!" like a rocket tak ing off for the moon. "Sss-s-wish. < like Frank Hawks pass.nc over Albuquerque. One by one stood up before him and one b> one he sent them back. They looked up the alley saw an indistinct flash as that oldie J arm whipped around and swung. They did not see a baseball No much of one anyway. What they really saw was a streak and a "poof" as the Oklahoman s screw ball a blood cousin to Mat he* - son's fadeaway, nicked the corners and crashed into Gus Mancuso a k^Thai's the story of your ball game. The story, that is, for sev en innings. In the el^bt ninth Carl tired and the Senators, bloodv, but unbowed, rose to chal lenge for the game with a surge that held the *55,000 spectators tense and qr'et. But when his arm went Hubbell called on his courasre and pulled out. The Giants gave Hubbell a mar gin to work on in the first inning. Joe Moore, first man up. sliced a single at Myer and was safe when the Washington second baseman | let it scurry through his legs. At-, ter Critz and Terry had fiied out Mel Ott the rosy cheeked boy from down New Orleans way, stepped into one of Lefty Stew art's curves. With the cheers o 56,000 fans speeding it. the ban soared into the right field ers and the Giants, the hitle..s wonders, were two runs out in front of the sluggers from Po tomac. , _. . This blow started Stewart on his way to the showers and the march was completed in the tnir.i inning when the Giants opened: with three successive hits. After Critz and Terrv had singled to right, Ott lined a one-bagger | against the same wall his homer > had cleared, scoring Critz and chasing Terry to third. This end- j ed Stewart, and Jack Russell, burly right handed, took up the pitching burden. Jackson, the first man to face Russell, bounced a scorcher off Kuhel's glove. Myer made a sen sational stop and throw to Russell to nab Jackson at first as Terry crossed with the fourth and final run- . «. v With Hubbell pitching as he was, this lead appeared insur mountable. Carl had opened the first inning by striking out Myer. Goslin and Manush in order, ana on 13 pitched balls. The Senators got the first of the five hits in the second when Manager Joe Cronin led off with a single between Jack > — son and Ryan. He pot no further along: the paths, however, for Schulte forced him at second and then died at second himself" as Kuhel struck out on an intended hit and run play. The Senators went down in or der in the third. Bluege and Stew art missing third strikes by feet. The Washington's picked up an unearned run in the fourth on singles by Myer and Schulte and an error bv Critz. Myer opened with a single and after Terry had handled Goslin's easy roller, Man ush drove an easy bounder at Critz, who allowed it to get awaj. Myer took third on the play and scored a second later when Cro nin forced Manush at second. Hubbell did not let this lapse on the part of his infield disturb him. but continued to mow his meh down. The W ashingtons went down in order in the fifth, sixth and seventh. The fact tha: joe Moore's catch of Cronin's low drive in the seventh was the first catch made by a Giant outfielder, is proof of Hubbell's mastery. Lp until that time the New York out fielders so far as their catching flies was concerned, might just as well have stayed at home and listened to the game over the radio. , Then came the eighth and the Washington surge that all but finished the crowd, as well as the Giants. After Bluege had struck out Sewell walked. Cronin vaitfc ?d Russell in favor of pinch-hit ;ing Dave Harris and the tiring Hubbell walked him also on four straight balls. As Harris trotted to first the entire Giant infield gathered around Hubbell. He tvaved them aside and went to work on Myer. With the count two and three, Myer slapped a hot one at Ryan and the crowd let up a tremen dous groan as the young collegian fumbled the ball. But somehow Blondy managed to get his hands )n it and toss it to Critz in time :o force the lumbering Harris. John McGraw often said that ball rames were won and lost by half i step and had Harris been a shade faster it might have meant the ball game for even Hubbell might not have been able to pull out with three men on and only one down. Then up strode Goslin, the wild ?oose of the Potomac. A home run would tie the game. And how :lose Goose came to getting one! On the first pitch he caught hold of the ball and grooved it down the first base line. For the frac tion of a second the ball was in flight you could have heard a pin drop in the bleachers. And when it faded to the right t o splash against the right field wall, a foul by inches, you couldn't have heard an elephant dropped three paces away. A few seconds later Goose caught hold of another of Hub bell's screw balls, but Terry, for tunately playing in close, leaped high in the air to spear it and crush the rally. The eighth, tremendous as it was, did not offer the thrills of the Senators' half of the ninth, which saw Manush, first man up, reach first when Ryan muffed his easy grounder. Cronin singled to put Manush on second, and Schulte filled the bases with a blazer that Jackson stopped, but couldn't handle. Again the Giant infield gath ered about Hubbell like chicks around a hen. And again Carl waved them aside to concentratc H^dSLIDES BY 8/LL BRPUCHER Out of the Notebook rpHE Red Sox management Is spending a half million improv ing Fenway Park .. .

Carl forced Kuhel to roll a simple one to Ryan and threw him out. Manush scored on the plays and Cronin took third and Schulte second. A single now would tie the game—a homer would put Washington ahead. But Hubbell. courageous as they come, summoned his failing strength and whipped three by Bluege and then made Sewell tap softly to Jackson who tossed him out at first and the first game of the series belonged to the young men of Manhattan. Four of the ten hits New York gathered off Stewart and Russell came off the bat of Ott, who had a perfect day with his homer and three singles. The only other Giant to j?et more than one was George Davis, who collected .a brace of singles. Cronin and Schulte, with a pair of singles each, and Myer were the only Senators to nick Hubbell for safeties. Myer. selected by the experts as the most likely Washington hero in a pre-series story, made all three of his team's errors.

Textile leaders urged the agricul tural adjustment administration yesterday to impose a tax on pa ner. jute and other fabrics com peting with cotton, to offset the effects of the processing levy on the major industry of the South. Declaring the processing tax was an "artificial burden" on cot ton. George A. Sloan, president of the cotton textile unit, said: "This disease of competition which is afflicting the cotton in dustry should be diagnosed in its early stages, rather than waiting and holding a post mortem after the indilstry is dead." He pointed out at an AAA hear ing on the desirability of impos ing a tax on competing products, that one southern mill owner had declared the cost of the process ing tax was equal to his labor costs on a poundage basis.

(UP). — Alabama hospitality is being extended this year to peo ple w^o have constituted one of the depression's major problems —jobless, homeless unemployed wandering from city to city. Working on the thory that if each state collects the wanderers) as they come in and cares for J them the load will be no greater than under the old migratory system, W. J. Plunkert, head of the Alabama Transient bureau, has worked out a system that isj approved by Washington relief officials. "It is simple," Plunkert said. "We have a relief agent in each county. Transients are gathered and sent to centers at Muscle Shoals, Birmingham, Montgomery and Mobile. We have establish ed a work project at Muscle Shoals and plan another at Mo bile, where our rases will be sent. "Meantime, they are investi gated. If it develops that they have legal residence, we furnish them transportation back home. Otherwise they go on to the work project and are kept there but always with the idea of finding them a permanent job. The people on relief are now at work on a park project at Muscle Shoals. The' project started there because of the num bers of people drawn to the dis trict by hopes on work on the government's power project. The workers are paid 30 cents an hour and work 24 hours week ly. After living expenses are de ducted, they have 90 cents in cash each week. Plunket developed the plan aft er studying the transient prob lem for 10 months last year in Alabama. Tennessee, Florida and Louisiana plan to follow it this vear and 34 states have applied to Washington for transient re lief funds.

Slash In Dairy Cattle Is Urged W FORT WORTH. Tex.. Oct. 4.— A dairy cattle reduction campaign similar to that carried on by the federal government for hogs, cot ton and wheat, has been suggest ed to Secretary of Agriculture Wallace by Dr. Lewis C. Crabb, chief veterinarian of the Texas Livestock Sanitary Commission. Crabb proposes slaughter, or disposal in some manner, of all diseases dairy cattle and all which do not give sufficient milk to re turn a profit in normal times. He suggested in his plan, which he forwarded to Secretary Wal-I lace, that a thorough test be car ried on throughout the United States of the health of cattle. This test, he suggested, could be made by the country's numerous agri cultural agencies at a small cost. Such a test, be said, would show that there are approximate ly 5,000,000 dairy cows in the United States which should be eliminated because of disease, or due to their unprofitableness as milk producers. He also advocated a processing tax on dairy products, similar to that placed on wheat and cotton, to pay farmers for disposing of the diseased, or poor quality, cat tle. The campaign against diseased cattle, aside from its economic benefits, would greatly aid in re ducing tuberculosis, Crabb said, while the elimination of unprofit able cattle from a herd would aid every farmer.
