Giants Near

Pennants As Season Fades

Yeah Freshman!



IIQJe of Yaniks
And Cardinals
Season Brings Bitter And
Hard-Fought Battles In
Both Major Leagues
With the last few weeks of a six-
months baseball season dwindling
away, the prospects of the New York
Yankees and the St. Louis Cardinals
catching the Tigers and Giants are
fading rapidly.
Despite a near-disastrous Detroit
batting slump, the only one' of the
year, 'the Yankees seem incapable of
whittling down the comfortable mar-
gin Detroit has-held for several weeks.
A sweep of the coming series between

ably the only thread of hope for New
In the National League, New York
appears able to breeze the rest of
the way to its second consecutive pen-
nant, having 'met its closest rivals,
'St. Louis and Chicago, for the last
time and emerged from the battles'
The success of the Giants is no sur-
prise, but few indeed believed at the
'beginning of the s'eason that Mickey
Cochrane's Tigers might be partici-
pants in the 1934 World Series. Few
that is, except the Cochrane himself,
who brought Detroit the spirit to stick
at or near the top over the long

Women To See Sport
Show At Palmer Field
To parallel the extensive sport
schedule planned by the Intra-
mural Department for the fresh-
men men, the Women's Athletic
Association and the Athletic De-
partment have combined forces to
put on a sport exhibition and
sport style show for freshmen
women to be presented Wednesday
afternoon at 4 p.m. at the Wom-
en's Field House.
Outdoor exhibitions of hockey,
tennis, golf, archery, badminton,
and riding have been 'planned.
Should the weather prove unfa-
vorable to outdoor activities, the
meeting, the first on the campus
for freshman women, will take
place indoors. Movies which have
been made in recent years of
sport at Palmer Field will be
Yankees, despite the unexpected mid-
season success of three young New
York pitchers: Broaca, Murphy, and
Washington, hit on every side with
disastrous injuries, has had a dis-
appointing season, while Cleveland,
with a good but not a strong team,
has been unable to catch the leaders.
Boston, despite the failure of high-'
priced talent, is no longer the Amer-
ican League doormat. St. Louis, under
the leadership of Rogers Hornsby,
has also had an encouraging year.
After threatening New York for
much of the season, the Chicago Cubs,
lacking consistent pitching, gave way
to the Cardinals, but St. Louis has had
no more success as a pennant con-
tender than Chicago, being hard
pressed to maintain its second-place
standing. No .other National League
.team at any time has proved a'threat
to the leaders, the failure .of Pitts-
burgh's Pirates being particularly dis-

Ticket Sales Leap
As Zuppke's Illini
Begin N~ew Season
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Sept. 17. -
Football interest runs high at the
Ulniversiy of Illinois after two days
of intensive practice.1
Concidence is universal that the
Illini will again be in there giving the
best of -them -an even :battle. This is
not only apparent among coaches,
players, and students, but is re-
flected in the ticket office.,
Manager C. E. Bowen reports that
for the two big home games, Ohio
State Oct. .13 and Army Nov. 3, as
many tickets have already been sold
as had been sold for three games up
to Oct. 5 last year. Another inter-
esting symptom is that the orders are
for larger quantities. There is every
reason to believe now that Memorial
Stadium will attract the largest
crowds since 1929 when the Army
game packed every nook and cranny
of the great structure.
khere are no restrictions of any
kind and any one may obtain as
many ducats as desired.
Candidates for the team had their
physical examinations out of the way
when they reported last Saturday.

There were two sessions Saturday
and Monday and two more will be
held today.
Regular classes begin tomorrow;
and the usual one session per day
will be held from then on. The Illini
are not so fortunate as some of the
rival institutions where classes do not
start until October.
All of the men Zuppke was counting
on have 'returned, furnishing him
with a nucleus of 12 lettermen from
last year's team as well as a number
of reserves from the surprising 1933

the semi-final. While he had been
outhit consistently from the tee, the
brilliant results Kocsis got from his
irons kept him neck and neck with
the Texan. They came into the 36th
hole, a 399 yard par four, with the
Wolverine star one down to White
and needing to take the hole to
square the match.
White .had the honor and pulled'
his drive into the rough, while Koc-
sis sent one straight down the fair-
way, and for a change outdistanced
his opponent. Bearing down with
everything he had, White sent a fine
recovery shot from the rough to the
green, but forty feet short of the pin
with a possibility of three putting.
┬░Kocsis, selecting a mashie-niblick,
was dead to the pin but about twelve
feet past the cup. With both men
lying two, "White sent a long putt
curling to within five feet of the cup.
Kocsis' hands stroked through his
ball and sent it on a bee-line .for the
hole. Slowly the ball approached
the cup, faltered, and stopped with
one-half inch to go.

it was the jar as White stepped over
'to pick up his ball, perhaps it was
the wind, or perhaps the weight of
the ball caused the grass to bend. At
any rate, as the Texan advanced
across the green his ball suddenly
quivered a little, poised on the rim
of the cup, and fell in to give White
his four and the match. Lady Luck-
left White on the next day in his
losing fight against Yates, but the
good woman had plenty to say about
Chuck Kocsis' defeat.

Still White had to sink his five foot
putt to tie the hole, and as he sent
his ball on its way Lady Luck step-
ped onto the green. The ball missed
the cup by a fraction of an inch, curl-
ed around the rim, tapped Kocsis'
ball lightly, rolled back a little to-
