LOS ANGELES - Jack Johnson,
former heavyweight champion of
the world, opened a bizarre night
club the other night in the heart
of Los Angeles' famous Central ave-
nue black belt.

The complete failure of the Phila-
delphia Athletics to hit two St.-
Louis pitchers proved their down-
fall in the 1932 classic, just finished,
paved the way to the biggest sport
upset of the year. At the outset of
the series the American League de-
fenders were heavily rated as
favorites and even when the Card-
inais took the lead at the outset
the White Elephants were picked
tc come back, especially with Mr.
George Earnshaw on the mound in
the final game, as the "Big Moose"
had won one game and pitched
well enough to win another.
Bottom Iey Stages Come-back.
Pepper Martin, sensational Red
Bird center fielder, slowed up in
the last two games after a brilliant
start but his performance still re-
mains as a mark for future series
players. Sunny Jim Bottomley, the
recognized goat of last year's games,
established himself as a real come-
back in this season's classic. The
Cardinal .first sacker fielded sensa-
tionally throughout. George Wat-

kins, young right fielder, a former
teammate of Martin's at Rochester,
contributed a timely home run in
Saturday's contest and distinguish-
ed himself further during the series
by stealing several bases.
Total failure of the Athletics to
fathom the pitching of either Bur-
leigh Grimes or Bill Hallahan was
the factor which featured largely
in their downfall. Hallahan allowed
the White Elephants but one run
in two games and Grimes, in win-
ning his two contests, blanked the
defenders in the first eight innings
of each game only to weaken and
allow two runs in each final frame.
Hafey Falls Off.
Chick Hafey, Red Bird left-fielder
and championship batter of the
National League bid heavily for the
honor of "goat" of the series. After
completely failing to hit Hafey
climaxed his performance by field-
ing poorly in the sixth contest. He
was replaced by Ernie Orsatti in the
final encounter.

. Competition in the fall All-Cam-
pus tennis tournament will start
this week with a field of 102 play-
ers entered. Coach Johnstone has
drawn up the meet and seeded the
card so that the first round match-
es are due to be run off by Wed-
The first group of seeded players
is eight in number and includes
Wilcox, last year's freshman star,
Pendell, Varsity reserve; Sandusky,
also of last year's yearlings; Nich-
olls and Seigle of the present fresh-
man squad; Corey, Scnapp and
A further group of five had to
added to accommodate the large
field however. These selections
were in order, Durand, Baldwin,
Nisen, Lederle and Muzzy, all num-
eral winners from last year. Final-
ly, about three more players,
chosen at random, had to be mark-
ed to fill out the card.
