NEW YORK, Oct. 4.-With the
opening game of the World Series
scheduled for 1:30 o'clock this aft-
ernoon in the Yankee stadium, and
with the Yankee cripples still on
thy: injured list, the uncertainty
of the New York line-up has
boosted the stock of the St. Louis
Cardinals, and sent the hopes of
their supporters still higher.
Earl Combs, injured center field-
er, is definitely out of the series,
except as a pinch base runner,
which shovedj Yankee stock still
farther down- the line. The odds
most frequently quoted today made
the Cardinals five to three favor-
ites to bring the wrold's title to the
national league.
New York Has Alibi
Although the outlook seems to
justify such odds, there has been
some talk of the Yankees being in
an enviable position with an alibi
-whether intentional or uninten-
tional-already ' prepared. The
Cardinals, however, at their fuU
strength, must defeat the reign-
ing World's champions and even
then will not receive the credit
'they deserve.
Although the cl~nud over the
Yankee's dugout seems to grow
blacker and blacker, the New York
club still appears as though it had
not a care in the world. Despite
the fact that Lazzeri did not ap-
pear at the regular workout yes-
terday, and that, Koenig and Ruth
are crippled, the American pen-
nant winners appeared absolutely
untroubled about the outcome of
the series.
Durocher May Start
The Yankee line-up is still un-
certain, with Combs definitely out,
Cedric Durst and Ben Paschal will
alternate in center field against
right and left hand pitching re-
spectively, this will give Paschal
the job if MKechnie starts Sher-
del tomorrow for the Cards, and
also put "Jumping Joe" Dugan at
third base in preference to Gene
Robertson, who will play against
the Cards' right-handed pitchers.
If Lazzeri's crippled shoulder does
not improve, Leo Durocher will
probably start at second base.
At present it looks as if Ben-
gough will be slated to handle all
the backstop duties for the Yanks,
while Hoyt is being groomed to
pitch the opener tomorrow for the
Huggmen. With Combs out, Hug-
gins will probably shift his batting
order, bringing Mark Koenig up to
the lead-off position.
Cards Rely on Wilson x
The Cardinals, with practically
no line-up worries will make but
one change to meet assorted
brands of pitching. MKechnie
will play George Harper in right
field against right handers, and
Wattie Holm against southpaws.
The National league champs will
also depend on a single backstop,
Jimmy Wilson, for the entire series.
-Although McKechnie refused to
admit that he favored any one of
his five possible hurlers, Sherdel,
Alexander, Haines, Rhem, or Mit-
chell for the opener, it seems al-
most certain that the two "natur-
als," Sherdel and Hoyt, will be
found opposing each other on the
mound. This lineup for the first
game will bring Haines and Pip-
gras together in the second, while
Alexander will oppose Zachary in
the third duel Sunday at St. Louis.
TEXAS-Reinstated to its former
position as a department of the
literary college after being "or-
phaned" for several years, the de-
partment of journalism is planning
laboratory sessions and will re-
quire a long thesis of each student.

IOWA CITY, Oct. 3-Respectful
of both Monmouth and Indiana re-
serves, winners of their opening
games last Saturday, the Univer-1
sity of Iowa's football teams have I
entered final preparations for the
double-header which opens the
season here Saturday. The Hawk-
eye Varsity players take on the1
Illinois college team, in imitation
of the procedure of 1927, while the
reserves are pitted against thel
Hoosier seconds.
No division of his squad into Var-
sity and reserve contingents will
be made by Coach Ingwersen prior
to the games, he said. He will
name his two elevens from the list
of seventy-five atbhletes who have.
Hawkeye uniforms.I
Monmouth Has Veterans
Monmouth, which played good
football last fall in the opening
game here, will return with 10 let-
termen. Captain Kenneth Walker,
I a native of Iowa, is the chief
The Illinois college team, coach-
ed by H. L. Hart, who learned his
football at Purdue, opened their
season with a clean-cut 21-0 vic-
tory over North Central college of
Naperville, Ill., last Saturday.
Regulars to Start
Faced by the necessity of pre-
senting his full power against Chi-
cago at Stagg field the following
Saturday, Coach Ingwersen of the
Iowans will guard his best men
with care. He will start his best,
lineup against Monmouth, includ-
ing Mayes McLain, Willis Glassgow
and "Monk" Jensvold, backfield
stars, together with Captain Brown,
Roberts, Westra, Jessen and Reed-
quist in the line.
Following Indiana's 39-0 victory
over' Terre Haute Normal, Iowa's
coaches expect a close and inter-
esting game against the Hoosier

The forward wall of the Wesley-
an team is built around Scribner,
veteran tackle, who tips the scales
vat 23 pounds and is very fast for
a player of his size. Abbey, a 190-
pounder, will handle the other
Jones and Campbell are the
two sophomore guards who are
favored to start against the
Wolverines, while Kaliher, Rice
and Blair are all experienced
From tackle to tackle the inva-'
ders' line will average 196 pounds,
but the. ends, Kyle, Coleman and
Siogenthaler are c o n s i d e r a b ly
smaller and .bring the average
Sweight of the forward wall down
to 188.
p The backfield offers no puz-
ile to Coach Gauthier as he
has seven experienced men on
his squa4. Halliday, quarter,
Glancy, fullback, and Breese,
Franz, McKinney, Thomas and
Waid comprise the list.
Advanced reports from Alliance
indicate that the Reserves will also
face a team composed of tried
players in their opening game with
Mt. Union. Coach John Thorpe has
nine letter men and eight others
who were numbered among the
players on the 1927 roster.
Captain Bixler, a fullback of
three year's experience, will.
lead the Ohioans, while Mere-
dith, quarterback, and Emerson
and Glenwright, halves, were
also members of the 1927 back-
field combination.

Coaches Wieman, Cappon and
Veenker spent a lot of time in try-
ing toperfect the defense against
passes, shifting the defending com-
bination so as to give every can-di-
date a te of this work.
The benefits of the drill in
this d jartment of the game
were dearly shown in Tuesday's
scrimmage when the Reds met
with none of the success in
the aerial game that they ex-
perienced last Saturday.
With only two days remaining
before the Wesleyan game, it ap-
pears that Leo Draveling, who was
named to start at end in the ten-!
tative lineup earlier in the week,
may not be in readiness, due tc>
the failure of his shoulder to re-
spond to treatment as rapidly as
had been: expected.
Rather than ran the risk o
injuring the ailing . member
again, the Coaches will prob-
ably keep the big sophomore
out of the opening tilt. In. this
event Truskowski, 1t92'7 letter-
man, appears to be the favorite
to hold down left end.
Al Bovard and Bill Brown con-
tinue to wage their merry battlex
for the pivot job. Bovard showed
to advantage in Tuesday's scrim-
mage, stopping just about every-
thing that came his way, besides
recovering a fumble for the Blues.
Just who will be the starting
quarterback appears to be just
as much of a: Chinese pizzle as
it was a week ago, with Simer-
all, Straub, Holmes and Wheel-
er all fighting for the job.
Straub, Wheeler and Simerall all;
performed in Tuesday's tilt and
there was little or nothing to}
choose between their work. It is
practically certain that Coach Yost
will use the Wesleyan game as the
acid test of these untried candi-
dates for the signal-calling job.

LAFAYETTE, Oct. 3.-Add a new
one to your book of unusual athlet-

"Post" Welch, Purdue's brilliant
halfback, is believed to be the only
man who ever caught a football
thrown from a speeding aeroplane
.early 200 feet in the air. The op-
ening ceremonies for the annual
Varsity-freshmen football game in
the Ross-Ade stadium here last Sat-
urday afternoon provided the set-
ting for this distinctive athletic
Strictly in accordance with pre-
vious arrangements,, an aeroplane
appeared over the playing field a
few minutes before game time,
banked around the stadium and
then shot over the field. As tie
oeroplane reached the end of the
playing field, the pilot dropped a
beribboned football as the official
ep cning of the game.
The ball came hurtling down as
expected, but just then the unex-
pected happened. Welch, always
an adept at snagging forward
passes out of the air, took one
fleeting look at the descending ball
and dashed toward the spot where
his judgment told him the pigskin
was most apt to light. Welch
reached the spot just in time to
plant his powerful legs and catch
the ball.
