NEW YORK (A1)-The New York
Yankees bounded back into the
World" Series yesterday on the
boom~ing bat of Hank Bauer, who
knocked in all the runs for a 4-0
third game victory over the Mil-
wauk~e Braves.
A home crowd1 of 71,559 saw
Casey Stengel's men, losers, of the
first two games in Milwaukee,
capitalize on 'Bauer's big hitting
and the shutout pitching of Don
Larsen and reliever Ryne Duren.
Bauer Hits Homer
Bauer, strong-armed rightfield-
er, collected three of his team's
four hits--two singles and a home
One of the singles in the fifth
scored Norm Siebern, and Gil Mc-
Dougald, who had walked. The
home run, a 400-foot blast into the
leftfield stands in the seventh,
brought in Enos Slaughter ahead
of him.'
Duren Pitched
Slaughter had gone in, to pinch-
hit for Larsen, whose arm began
to stiffen after he had halted the
Braves for seven innings. Duren
walked three and had, one }wild
pitch in relief but protected Lar-
sen's lead.
The Yankees will attempt to
level the 'series at Yankee Stadium
today when they send their series
ace, Whitey Ford,_ against the
Braves, lefthander, Warren Spahn.
Box sco1U.V

Spahn beat Ford in the first game,
'4-3, in 10 innings.
Because of a Sunday law, the
fourth game will start at 1:05 p.m.
(EST), an hour and five minutes
later than the normal ,starting
The Braves' losing pitcher was
Bob Rush, 32-year-old righthander
playing in his first world series
Rush Pitched! magnificently for
the Braves, but he lacked the an-
swver for Bauer.

The Big Question
BASEBAL.L is leaving the sports scene for another year. There is
still one baseball matter to be decided between the Braves and the
Yankees. For the next few days the name of Spah, Mantle, Burdette,
Aaron and company will be ;oni the tips of everyone's tongue. Then
things will get back to normal and that annual question will begin to
make the rounds again. What is the matter with professional baseball?
That question has been kicking around for a number of years now
and at times was unwarranted when great individual 'or.team per-
formances kept the baseball world literally on the edge of its seat for
the entire season. This year, however, was quite tranquil in the Majors
after the Yankees almost clinched the American League Pennant
within a month of Opening Day and the Braves convinced most
sceptics that they are and will be the best team in the National League
for some years yet. Possibly even -Casey Stengel is convinced after the
pasting his team received Thursday.
Fans who used to come to the games in droves just aren't turning
out anymore. In the American League attendance was at its lowest
since 1953 with only 7,295,000 spectators at the games. The National
League saw its attendance figures soar to over the 10,000,000 mark
with most of the increases being made in Los Angeles and San Fran-
cisco. -Pittsburgh made great gains also as would most teams that
spurt from seventh to second place in the course of one year. But the
trend seems to be for former fans to divert their interests elsewhere.
Westward Travels .. .
B ASEBALL owners blamed' many different sources for the falling
attendance. Television has borne the brunt of much criticism' in
almost every major league area. Horse racing has also been blamed.
The' latest trend of the owners seems to be that it is the "patriotic"
duty of the fans to turn out and, watch heir home team.
When Lou Perini finally got the brainstorm to send his mediocre
Boston Braves west to Milwaukee it seemed that finally baseball was
saved. The -fanatical burghers of Milwaukee have made the Braves
top the Majors in attendance every season since the fateful decision
was made five years ago. It should be added, however, that that "medi-
ocre" Boston Brave team probably would haveset near attendance
records in Boston since the unknowns such as Hank Aaron, Eddie Mat-
hews and Lew Burdette were- just beginning to blossom when the
franchise moved. Other teams suchas the Orioles and Athletics were
soon to 'find out that cities are glad to get Big "League baseball but
soon tire of the novelty if a winner isn't produced. Both Baltimore
and Kansas City fans aren't coming out in such great numbers now
that they have found their teams are of second division calibre.
The Cleveland Indians and Washington Senators were both think-
ing of moving to other cties because of failing attendance. This year
they were dissuaded. Next year? Who knows. If they do move to
Minneapolis, New Orleans or Dallas they will have to produce winners
to keep the fans that will initially turn out. Apparently this isn't the1
solution to the problem.
An Attempt..
A SOLUTION is needed If Major League Baseball hopes to continue.
Fans will flock to the park to see winning teams. However, attend-
ance at Yankee Stadium has fallen off since the excitement factor is
wearing off there. Cheering for the Yankees offers about as much
excitement as cheering for General Motors.
The problem of producing a balanced league does not of coursel
offer an easy solution. Some strideshave been mtade in the past few
years by making a player eligible for the Major League draft if not
called up by the parent club within three years. But a major obstacle
to getting any really good players is the fact that the major league
club can protect up to 40 players, which would include the major league
roster of 25 and 15 of the 'most promising minor leaguers. ,
If the number of players that could be protected by a major league
team could be dropped to around 25 or 30, this certainly would help
the other teams in the league and definitely would produce tighter
competition. Another point'of interest that could be increased is the
inter-league play. Several years ago Tiger great Hank Greenberg made
a suggestion in which a club would play six games with each team in
the other league. His contention that the fans' -interest would be
heightened if they could watch their team play the teams in the other
league certainly is a plausible one. What fan in Detroit, for example,
wouldn't be interested in seeing a Stan Musial, -a Robin Roberts or
a Willy Mays performing in Briggs Stadium?
There have been cries to break up the Yankees but this Is certainly
a negative and not a positive approach to the problem. Casey Stengel
and'George Weiss shouldn't be condemned for producing great teams
and be dragged down into the mediocrity of the rest of the American
League. Perhaps the entire American and also the National League
should study the very successful National Football League which has
proven that at well-balanced league produces exciting games which
attract fans to the stadiums despite the distracting influences, of
television, horse racing and various other amusements.

a new sport shirt begins, to
appear, a sport shirt as fresh
and new-looking as the one
you bought in the store.
Amazed, you remove it from
the water, hang it' up for a

bit, and it's ready to wear.
Friends will ask, "How do
you manage to afford a new
shirt every day?" You will an-
