(BAy Asswated Press)
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 7. - Staid
old Philadelphia, suddenly aware
that the clfsing act of a highly
dramatic world's series is to be
staged upon her door step went
slightly baseball batty today.
Pride in the hammering Athletics
of Connie Mack, who surprised in
the gallant comeback of the St.
Louis Cardinals, mingled to stir up
in the faithful the excitement that
was so obviously lacking when the
American league champions swept
the opening two games of the an-
nual classic here. The rally of the
Cards to capture two of the three
battles in St. Louis has set the
whole town to scrambling to be in
at the death when the sixth game
starts at 1:30 tomorrow afternoon
in. Shibe park. Grove and Hallahan
have been named as probable start-
ing pitchers.
Return Is a Surprise.
The baseball bugs of, William
Penn colony had no idea that the
mighty sluggers of Mack would ever
be back to wind up the series in
their own' back yard after belting
the National league title holders
around in the first two matches
here. They saw the Cardinal Aces,
Burleigh Grimes and Flint Rehm,
go down under the clouting of the
boyish Jimmy Foxx, smiling Al Sim-
mons and the fighting Micky Coch-
rane, saw Lefty Grove and big
Geo ge Earnlha dominate the
pitching situation, and concluded
as they had thought all along that
there was not enough opposition to
really, get excited about.
But the Cardinals, grim and de-
ternmed, rolled' back into Phila-
delphia early this afternoon, trail-
ing twb games to three in the series
count, faced with the problem of
wining to'morrow or joining In
defeat the three National league
champions in a i row before them-
the Pittsburgh Pirates of 1927, the
Cardinals of 1928 and the Cubs of
1929. There was nothing of defeat
about them as they jostled about,
gayly in the railroad station, threw
their bags into a line of taxicabs
and wheeled away to their hotels
under escort of motorcycle police.
Crowd at Station.
A crowd of several hundred form-
ed in the station to point out slim
Bill Hallahan, the quiet Southpaw
who plastered a shut-out on the
A's in the first game at St. Louis
Saturday, Big Jeff Haines, the
knuckle-ball artist who overcame
the white elephant Sunday and
Grimes, scrappy, courageous, fight-
ing foeman who went down yester-
day to a two-to-nothing defeat
when Foxx pelted him for a home
run with Micky Cochrane cn base
in the ninth. There was respect for
these Western warriors in the at-
tentiveness of the faithful and the
hoots and catcalls from the fringe
of the crowd attested at least the
fact that the rabid ones still con-
sider them dangerous.

and Dr. Eckener hesitated when
asked to take his place.

Spence's long residence in Cana-
da combined with his familiarity

thority to discuss the Canadian
liquor system from the American
point 'of view. Spence has spoken
on the same subject in a series of
lectures over WJR Detroit during
the past week..
According to the announcement
of Kearns this forum is in the na-
ture of a preliminary extra series.

ums will start Octdber 16 when
Prof. William H. Hobbs of the geo-
logy department' will talk on the
subject "The Value of Present Day
Exploration"to Civilization."

ject to be announced later.

OF WA9TERMANTRIP
[ntolerable Heat Is Described
in Letter; Valuable
Coins"F9n d.
News of the Waterman expedi-
tion, which left Ann Arbor but a
month ago, was received by Presi-
dent Alexander Grant Ruthven
yesterday. in a -letter from Leroy
Waterman, expedition leader who
is now engaged in scientific ex-
ploration of the buried city of Iraq
in the Persian area. The letter
told of the discovery of 450 valu-
able pieces of early Volograses
coins during the first day's work
while 236 more were added within
a few hours on the second day.
These coins date back to 140-19C
A. D.
Terrific heat has halted progress
which would have been made in
cooler weather, the dispatch to Dr
Ruthven stated. Temperatures of
111 degrees in the shade were not
uncommon during the first week
Dr. 'Waterman stated in his let-
ter, and the glaring heat forcec
the greener men to seek shelter be-
tween the ' hours of 11 and z it
mid-day.
Working on the undiscoverec
cities of Asia Minor, the Watermar
expedition, made the trip fron
Ann Arbor to Baghdad in 20 days
a record breaking journey. Th
staff now assembled at - Iraq in
cludes 250 workers, mostly natives
as well as nine experts who ari
directing the task of digging ou
relics of more than 1750 years ago
Although the importance of th
discoveries made to date indicat
the immediate success of the ex
pedition, the letter to Dr. Ruthvei
also implied that the major worr
of the entire trip would lie in th
battle against the heat. More tha
two-thirds of the letter was uses
to describe the depressing effort
of the high temperatures and th
results on the workmen.
It is not known how long the ex
pedition will remain in Iraq, al
thoughnsuccesses such as the pres
ent may cause the leaders of th
expedition to s t a y for man
months.

Telephoto shows the wreckage of the British dirigible R-101 which crashed late last Saturday on the
side of a hill about three miles from Beauvais, France. Police are shown carrying away the half-burned
remains of the airship victims. Of .the forty-six who lost their lives in the tragedy, a large percentage
were aircraft experts from the various governments of Europe. Since many of the bodies were not able to
be identified, the British air ministry plans to interr the remains in a single grave near the scene of the
disaster. It is also planned to erect a memorial to those who perished, near Cardington, England, the
home port of the dirigible.

DOVER, Enigland, Oct. 7.- A
akish :British destroyer speeding
hrough choppy Channel seas to-
light brought back to Britain and
he honors of the empire, 47 coffins
ontaining the remains of the great
.ompany of air experts and airmen
vho perished in the wreck of the
lirigible R-ro at Beauvais on sun-
lay.
The destroyer Tempest slipped
nto her berth at the Admiralt pier
:o the salute of an honor guard of
o men of the Royal Air forces and
:he representatives from every arm
)f the British Military service.
Accident Mars Return.
A single accident marred the rp-
urn of the dead from the stern
farewell of France at Boulogne-sur-
Mer, across the Channel.
The Tempest came in alone,
ringing all the coffins. At the start
she had been accompanied by her
sister ship, the destroyer Tribune,
but the Tribune ran aground in the
rough seas after the Boulogne
breakwater.
The Tempest, running on ahead
th rough the twisting channel with
aboit ha :of the coff ns, was forced
to turn back to her assistance.
Tribune Breaks Propeller.
When it was found that the Trib-
une had damaged her propellor, all
the coffins she had had aboard
were transferred to the Tempest,
which then started under full speed
for Dover. The Tribune went to
Portsmouth for repairs.
At the pier in Dover harbor, the
bodies of the illustrious dead, from
Lord Compton, minister of air, to
the helper in the cook's galley, was
brought ashore by details of men
from the Royal Air force airdrome
at Hampton and Hawkinge.
A common grave, to accord with
their common fate, was being plan-
ned for them at Cardington, home
port of the R-101, from which she
set out on Saturday night on her
disastrous voyage to India.
