Vew York inWorld Series Opener

This Afternoo

NEW YORK, Sept. 27--()-In a
setting that may lack its customary
jam and jubilee, unless the weather
and bokofxoce conditions take a
quick turn for the better, the battle
for World Series baseball "gold and
glory" will start tomorrow for the
purpose of determining whether the
New York Yankees have the power to
overthrow the hustling Chicago Cubs.
For reasons not quite clear to the
innocent bystanders, the Yankees
will go into their seventh World Se-
rIes at least 2 to 1 favorites to bring
the big banner back to the Ameri-
can League, despite the well-known
Illness of their biggest batting threat,
babe Ruth ,and the lately developed
shakiness of their pitching staff.
Pitchting Duel Looms
Aside from all the inevitable ar-
guments before the battle, however,
the salient prospects are for a pitch-
ing duel between Guy Bush of the
Cubs arid Charley (Red) Ruffing of
the Yankees for the opening games,
showery weather and a turnout of
cash customers not likely to exceed
4'0,000, unless there is an unexpected
last-minute "break" in the weather
and a consequent rush for the turn-
stiles. ,
Box office conditions were not im-
proved by today's cold, dismal out-
look. The rain and chilly weather
kept the Cubs, who arrived at 1Q a.
in., as well as the Yankees, from
risking their muscles in any workouts
at the Yankee Stadium.
Unless there is something more
than a shower, however, tomorrow's
opener will go on at 1:30 p. m. with
Mayor Joseph V. McKee tossing out
the first ball.
If a postponement is necessitated,
the series getaway will be put back to
Thursday, with the second game here
Friday and the opening of the three-
game set in Chicago starting Sun-
It will not be surprising if both
Pennock, and Burleigh Grimes, the
Cubs ancient spitbaler, go back into
action again, especially if any emer-
gency for either team is created by
the collapse of pitching talent now
relied upon to tote the main burden.

New York Batting Hope

"Larru pin' Lou" G ehrig, home-run
hitting first baseman of the New
York Yankees, will bat in the clean-
up position and is favored to lead the
American Leaguers in hitting in the
World Series.
Speedhall Starts Soon

schedule will get under way Oct 12,
according to Earl N. Riskey, Intra'
mural director.
This week entry blanks for speed-
ball and copies of the new Intramu-
ral Handbook are being distributed
to the fraternities. Riskey estimated
that 30 teams would be seeking the
speedball crown won by the Alpha
Kappa Lambdas last year.
Prospective players were warned
that they must present health cards
before they will be allowed to play.
As was done last year, forfeit fees
are being required. If no games are
forfeited, the fees will be returned.

DETROIT, Sept. 27-Stanley Har-
ris has been re-signed to manage the
Detroit baseball team, it was an-
nounced here today. In making the
announcement, Prank Navin, presi-
dent of the Detroit Ball Club, showed
again the confidence he had often
expressed in Harris' abilities.
Although the Tigers finished in
fifth position in the American League
after making a spirited bid for sec-
ond place throughout the earlier
stages of the season, illness and in-
.juries rather than lack of manager-
ial abilities were ascribed as the
Record Unimpressive
Harris' record at Detroit has not
been impressive, but he has been
very successful in moulding a num-
ber of young players into a winning
combination. He was unpopular in
Detroit throughout the last, two sea-
sons with the fans, however, and
although he is respected by all of
the other managers in the circuit,
he seems unable to sell himself to
the home town patrons.
Roger Peckinpaugh, popular pilot
of the Cleveland Indians and former
team-mate of Harris at Washington,
once characterized him as "the best
sport a man could play against, a
hard man to beat, but ever a good
loser." Other major league managers
and club owners have made similar
statements concerning him.
Develops Youngsters
Among the young players that he
has been successful in developing are
Harry Davis, sensational rookie first
baserhan, Joyner White and, Jona-
thon Stone. outfielder, and Tom
Bridges, Whitlow Wyatt, and Elon
Hogsett, pitchers.
Harris started his managerial ca-
reer at Washington, where after be-
coining a stellar second baseman he
was appointed to pilot the Senators
and led them to two successive
American League pennants. He then
moved to Detroit, succeeding George
Moriarty as manager of the Tigers.

With Kearns


Feud of
at Last


NEW YORK, Sept. 27.-G')-Jack'
Dempsey created the major sensa-
tion at the Walker-Schmeling heavy-
weight bout here last night. He
shook hands with Jack Kearns.
The bitter feud between Dempsey
and the man who managed him into
a world's heavyweight championship
had become proverbial in fistic cir-
cles and had left the men so far
apart that mutual friends had aban-
doned all hope of ever getting them
together again.
But last night just before the main
bout went on, Dempsey was called
into the ring and amazed the critics
by dashing over to grasp Kearns'
hand and mutter a greeting.
Whether Dempsey's action meant
a burial of the hatchet could not
immediately be learned.
Kearns, who now manages Walker,,
said he was as much surprised as
any of the boxing writers and could,
offer no explanation.
"I don't know why he did it,"
was Kearns' comment. "He just'
came over, shook my hand and said,
'How are you, Jack.' That was all.
That's the first time we've shakenl
hands since the split up."
Dempsey could not be reached for,
comment, but there seemed to be no
doubt that the former heavyweight
king has decided to make up.

Are Needed By
Wildcat Team
Manager Is Noted For De-
veloping Young Players;
Is Well Liked
EVANSTON, Ill., Sept. 27,-OP)-
Out here at Northwestern this year,
it all depends on how much help
Coach Dick Hanley can dig up for
Capt. Pug Aentner, All-American
halfback, and a set of brilliant back-
field mates.
If Hanley had nothing but his
backfield over which to ponder, as
the Wildcats go out to try to equal
their brilliant 1930 and 1931 records,
he would be about as well fixed as
any coach in the land. Rentner,
matchless ball carrier and passer;
Ollie Olson, the coaches' dream of
what a kicker should be; George
Potter, able strategist, and Jackie
Sullivan, regulars from last year,
leave little to be desired in the wayI
of a starting backfield.
But, gone are one of the greatest
sets of tackles of many seasons.
Jack Riley and Dallis Marvill, reg-
ulars for the past three years, who
helped Northwestern to shares of
the 1930 and 1931 Big Ten title, have
passed on. There probably will be a
Riley at tackle, for Hanley had
Jack's younger, but bigger, brother
Bill who ,served as a reserve last
year. Mil Froberg probably will get
the call at the other tackle.
