Tidal Wave Of Winners'
NEW YORK, Oct. 6.-('P)-The
New York Yankees blasted their way
back to the baseball heights today
with a farewell salvo of basehit
shrapnel that crushed the last ling-
ering hopes of their intra-city rivals,
the battle-worn Giants, and tore an-
other whole page out of the record
Riddled by the long-range guns of
the American League champions,
crippled but still fighting up to the
very last with all the resources at
their command, the Giants finally
crumbled under a ninth-inning bar-
rage that produced seven runs and
swept the Yankees to a lopsided con-
quest, 13 to 5, in the sixth and final
game of the All-New York battle for
the world baseball championship.
Yanks Set New Records
As the tumult and the shouting
died down for 1936, following as de-
vastating an attack as any World
Series has ever known, the "Bronx
Bombers' emerged with a decisive
victory, four games to two, in a
series that set a flock of new hitting
and scoring records, besides scaling
fresh heights for attendance and
receipts with a return to boom-time
The Yankees not only squared ac-
counts with their metropolitan rivals
in World Series play, with two tri-
umphs for each club in four battles
for the games highest stakes, but
registered their. fifth championship
conquest in eight attempts and their
fourth in succession. Following up
4JO.& sweep of 1927, 1928 and
1932 battles with the National
League, the Yankees now boast a
record of 16 games won out of 18
Giants Use 4 Pitchers
Four pitchers, led by the hard-luck
victim of the third game, Fat Freddy
Fitzsimmons, failed to check the
tidal wave of Yankee ,basehits this
afternoon. The Giants got off in
front and finally forced their south-
paw Foe, Vernon (Goofy) Gomez, to
cover in the seventh inning, but it
was an uphill battle for them nearly
all the way.
The National Leaguers simply did
not have the power to match their
rivals, particularly in the "clutches,"
and their emergency defense finally
came apart in the ninth-inning de-
The Giants, trailing 3 to 5 after
Fitszimmons had been driven from
the box within four innings with a
nine-hit five-run assault, lost their
big chance to regain command of the
ball game in the seventh frame. They
came within one run of tying the
score when Dick Bartell doubled and
Bill Terry belted Gomez for a base-
hit to center that Joe DiMaggio
fumbled for his first misplay of the
Gomez Taken Out
Gomez gave way to the relief
pitching of Johnny Murphy after
Hank Leiber sacrificed and Mel Ott
walked but the Giants rushed three'
pinch-hitters into the crisis without
being able even to produce the tying
run. Hitting for Gus Mancuso, Sam-
bo Leslie, who had hit safely in his
two previous turns as a pinch bats-
man, fouled weakly to Rolfe. Jimmy
Ripple, hitting for Burgess White-
head, walked to fill the bases but
Mark Koenig, running in from the
bull pen to hit for Travis Jackson,
took a third strike with his bat on
After blowing this big chance, the
Giants folded quickly with a lineup
revamped in four positions for the
last two innings. Dick Coffman, who
relieved Clydell (Slcik) Castleman
in the box, yielded one run in the
eighth and was knocked out in the
ninth by the farewell salute.

that he is denied by the record," Unit-

tonight in addressing a Marquette

second speech in his campaign swing

"They planned the NRA method of

demand that Works Progress Admin-i

paper inspection was linked by ,Gov.
Alf M. Landon at a press conference
today to an assertion that the New.

"Censorship of the source of news
is just as bad as censorship of news,"
the Republican presidential candi-

Hopkins Says Records Open
The nominee was talking at a press
conference where he also reaffirmed
his support of the St. Lawrencesea-
way project. Landon was asked by
reporters to comment on a state-
ment by Harry L. Hopkins that WPA
records were open "to anybody who
has a legitimate reason to see them."
The WPA administrator, in turn,
was replying to a demand by John G.
Stutz, Kansas Relief Director, for
figures on state WPA administrative
"Harry L. Hopkins has shut off
the source of news," Landon said. "I
think WPA records are public bus-
iness and the information should be
made available to any newspaper.
"Does that hold during election*
years?" he was asked.
"It- doesn't make any difference
whether or not it should be during
a campaign." the Governor replied.
Landon was asked to what he at-
tributed the cause of what he de-
scribed as "censorship."

"they're afraid of the waste and ex-
travagance that publicity would re-
The nominee made special com-
ment on Hopkins' reference to Stutz's
demand as "another of those red her-
rings" intended to "divert .the at-
tention of people from his own sit-

ly said that Communism, as a cam-
paign issue, was a "red herring."
"I see he's also discovered another
red herring," Landon said of Hopkins.
"The Administration seems to be
finding a lot of red herrings. It's

and the depression threatened to
hunt new lows. Then came a unan-

The Supreme Court rather than the

TheSenator quoted W. J. Cameron,
of the Ford Motor Company, as say-
ing "Industrial recovery began where
political hinderance partly ceased.:
The last great surge forward began,
a year ago, after industry was grant-
ed what officially was called a
'breathing spell.' The rate of im-
provement is greatest in precisely
those industries that have flung over-
board the new political theories of
production and management. The
state of continuing recovery depends
on whether men over-fond of bizarre
economic theories, men who never
successfully managed a business
themselves, are allowed to interfere
with industry again."
"We all agree" the Senator con-
tinued, "that it is good to prohibit*
sweat shops and child labor, and to
rigidly protect free collective bar-
gaining, and to establish minimum
work hours. But it is not necessary

Dow appeared in the hearing called
by the Commission to review the
rates and charges for electric service
made by his company. He listed as
three reasons for the continuation of
1. Increased Federal taxation.
2. A rise in living costs coupled
with the proximity of social security
3. A probable increase in the price
of coal used to generate electricity.
Dow charged the Guffey Coal act
would raise the price of coal produc-
tion and testified his firm cut em-
ployes to a 40-hour week in 1932 to
avoid dismissals during a slack per-
iod. He added that collection of a

employes would throw house budgets
further out of line.

Sale To Soviet
Affidavit Is Made Public
When Munitions Group
Fokker Testifies On
$500,000 Plane Deal
Roosevelt Says Was Not
To Negotiate With Any
Elliott Roosevelt, son of the Pres-
ident, denied last night, according to
the Associated Press, that he had ever
made a contract with Anthony H. G.
Fokker, former German airplane
manufacturer, involving the sale of
military planes to Russia.
WASHINGTON, Oct. 6.-A)-The
Senate Munitions Committee tonight
made public what it said was an af-
fidavit by Anthony H. S. Fokker, for-
mer German airplane manufacturer,
stating he had signed a contract in
1934 to give Elliott Roosevelt, son of
the President, a commission of $500,-
000 in connection with the sale of
military airplanes to Russia.
Committee officials said the affida-'
vit was made public by order of
Chairman Nye (Rep., N.D.) as a result
of published charges the committee
was withholding information.
Claim President Approved
They said it was taken by Stephen
Raushenbush and Joel Earnest, Com-
mittee investigators, and quoted Fok-
ker as saying he made the agreement
with Elliott Roosevelt after discov-
ering he could not procure an exclu-
sive sales agency for Douglas Air-
planes to Russia "because it had been
given to Mr. Elliott Roosevelt and cer-
tain partners in business with him."
In the alleged affidavit Fokker said
he had been informed by his agent,
through a third party, that President
Roosevelt had approved the contract
made by his son, but objected to El-
liott's travelling abroad to sell air-
planes. 1. m m
Fokker's agent was quoted as say-
ing he desired Elliott Roosevelt to
travel abroad with him in an effort
to sell airplanes to various govern-
ments, "counting on the willingness
of high foreign officials to receive Mr.
Roosevelt as the son of the American
This arrangement fell through, the
Fokkeragent, reported, according to
affidavit, after Elliott had discussed
the plan by telephone with the Pres-
ident and "had beentold by the
President that he had objection to
Mr. Elliott Roosevelt's traveling
aboard in this connection, but had
approved the contract with Mr. Fok-
Roosevelt said he had contracted
with Fokker in February, 1934, to sell
airplanes, but that the planes to be
sold were not military ships and that
the contract expressly stipulated that
Roosevelt was not to sell to foreign
governments or to the United States
government, or to officials of such
The contract, he said, specifically
set forth that at no time would he
be called upon to represent Fokker
with officials of any European power'
