Battle Of Southpaws



As Series Gets

Under way

Rain Is Threat
As Gothamites
Speed Of Gomez Versus
Hubbell's Craft Assures
Fans Of Close Battle
NEW YORK, Oct. 5.-(IP)-Every
body but the weather man manifested
the cooperative spirit today as finish-
ing touches were applied to prepara~
tions for New York's fifth exclusive
World Series, due to be unveiled to-
morrow in the Yankee Stadium.
. The opening "battle of left hooks,"
otherwise identified as a southpaw
pitching duel between Vernon Gomez
of the Yankees and Carl Hubbell of
the Giants, presaged a long-awaited
"natural" that required only a fa-
vorable break of weather to attract
the populace in possibly record-
breaking numbers.
Officials optimistically predicted a
record crowd of 70,000 fans. A "near
sellout" of reserved seats was report-
ed late today, with 30,000 unreserved
grandstand and bleacher seats, at
$3.30 and $1.10, respectively, to be
put on sale tomorrow morning.
A forecast of showery weather,
however, made it appear unlikely the
series record for cash customers, set
at 66,669 in the stadium last year for
a Sunday game, would be surpassed
at the outset. The best guess was
that between 50,000 and 60,000 will
witness the opener of the best-four-
out-of-seven whirl.
The Giants won last year's open-
ing game in the rain, with Hubbell
pitching, and the second game was
postponed, but all hands were hop-
ing the getaway would not be spoiled
by bad weather again.
While the Giants went briskly and
quietly about their warmup at the
stadium, the Yankees all but tore the
cover off the ball and the paint off the
grandstand facades at the Polo
Grounds. The power that has made
the Yankees firm 2 to 5 favorites was
in evidence despite complaints of
sore throats, head colds or other min-
or ailments.
The. Yankees figure to win, not
alone on their run-making ability but
because they have pitching forces well
equipped to match the best the Giants
can produce. But there's a growing
conviction that the Giants have what
it takes to check the world cham-
All second semester freshman
and first semester sophomores in-
terested in trying out for the foot-
ball managership please report to
me at 3:30 p.m. today in Yost
Field House.

First Yearling
Set For Friday
The members of the freshman
football team will be given their first
real chance to show their ability this
Friday afternoon when Coach Ray
Fisher plans to hold the initial intra-
squad scrimmage at Ferry Field.
So far the freshman have been
somewhat segregated with one squad
practicing plays while other teams
were engaging in scrimmage sessions
with the Varsity.
These scrimmages with the Varsity,
while not highly competitive in any
sense, have brought to light several
good yearling prospects. Among the
linemen to see service in these battles
Forest Evashevski, a big center from

Northwestern High in Detroit, has
been outstanding.
He is over six feet in height, weighs
195 pounds and has looked very good
at backing up the line against the
Varsity onslaught. Forest was given
all-state recognition while playing
with Jack Heston's amateur squad in
Ralph Fritz, a guard, and Chuck
Jones, all-state halfback from Loius-
ville, Ky. have also shown up well.
Jones is only five feet, eight inches
tall, weighing 160 pounds but is fast
and looks good on the defense. Tom
Harman, highly publicized all-state
fullback from Horace Mann High in
Indiana has not seen any scrimmage
action. as yet but will be given his
chance Friday.
In Monday night's session, Dave
Strong was a member of the frosh
backfield. Strong is the boy who
transferred from Illinois this year
after playing regular quarterback on
the Illinois squad last season, scoring
the field goal which won the Mich-
igan game. He has been working out
with the freshmen this fall about
three days a week.

Golfers To Vie For
Trueblood Trophy
Competition in the second annual
Trueblood Cup tournament will get
under way this week with the first
round of play scheduled for Saturday
at the University golf course.
Open to all scholastically eligible
men except "M" winners, the tour-
ney, won last year by Bill Yearnd, is
72 holes of medal play. Yearnd's score
last year was 309. The play extends
over two week-ends, starting at 1:30
on Saturday, with 18 holes to be
played on Sunday, starting at 8:30
a.m., and with rounds to be played
at the same times on the following
week. Pairings will be made at the

tee, but entries should be in by Oct.
Competition is expected to be very
keen, according to Coach Emeritus
Thomas C. Trueblood, as the crop of
freshman golfers, is the best since
the days of Johnny Fischer and
ChuckKocsis. One of the favorites
for the cup is Bob Palmer, who Just
turned in a hot round of 69. Entries
may be made at the clubhouse, by
leaving name, telephone number, ad-
dress and class.

Carl Hubbe::, veteran screwball
artist of the Giants, is the man on
whom Bill Terry will rely to get his
club off to a flying start in the first
game of the Series. Terry'st"meal-

Goofo" Gomez. Hubbell won 22
games while losing only eight games
over the season's play and pitched

Series Line-Up
NEW YORK, Oct. 5.-(AP)-Prob-
able starting lineups for the New
York Giants and New York Yankees
in the first game of the World Series
tomorrow afternoon at the Yankee
Stadium, with batting averages and
won-and-lost records of pitchers:

The Wolverines went through the
entire football gamut yesterday in1
their regular Ferry Field workout in
preparation for the Northwestern
game this weekend. Passing, punt-
ing, tackling the dummy and block-
inF all came in for work as the squad
was sent through its paces.
The praying phase was noticeably
absent, however, as Coach Harry Kip-
ke, who seemed well pleased with his
gridders' showing, worked with the
men. According to him, the team was
shaping up better, and has been
showing a good deal more fight and
Use Wildcat Plays
Kipke and Hunk Anderson sent the
freshman squad, armed with North-
western plays, against the first string
men in a long practice. On the Var-
sity during the drill were Smick and
Nicholson at ends, Siegel and Savilla,
tackles, Heikkenen and Brennan,
guards, and Kodros at center. Ritchie,
Renda, Farmer and Barclay held
down the backfield posts.
Coach Kipke was especially pleased
with the showing of Danny Smick at
the end post, and expected to use him
Saturday if he continues to play as
he did yesterday.
At the same time, second and third
team men spent the time running
through plays and smoothing out dif-
ficulties wherever they appeared.
Olds Still Out
While some of the men changed
positions during the workout, start-
ing lineups included on the second
string, Nickerson, Levine, Piotrowsky,
Trosko as backs, and Capt. Joe Rin-
aldi, Pederson, Kuhn and Floersch in
the forward wall.
The condition of Fred Olds who was
injured in the State game was still
far from satisfactory, according to
Coach Harry Kipke. Both he and
Fred Janke are suffering from leg in-
juries. It will probably take Olds
another week to recover, while Janke
will no doubt be fit to see action this

Yankee Guns Oiled,...
YANKEE GUNS begin their annual
bombardment of the Giant fort-
ress today, and strangely, some of the
"know" boys think Col. Bill Terry and
his Coogan Bluff roughies might
withstand the assault. These men,
who spend their daylight hours in
dark, window-grated cigar stores, like
the Giants to the extent of laying
some of their "go-easy, come-easy"
lettuce on them.
There's always a variety of
opinion on mooted things like a
World' Series: One willing ex-
pert claims that the Yankees are
unstoppable by a motley crew like
the Giants, which won a pennant
with an outfielder, Mel Ott, on
third base, and a third baseman,
Lou Chiozza, in the outfield. An-
other avers anything can hap-
pen in a short series, and any-
thing does. He adds Cliff Melton
will make the game difference be-
tween this series and last year's.
Pitching is generally conceded to be
90 per cent of a ball club, and al-
though Melton and Hubbell won 42
games between them this season, the
Yanks still needn't start crawling
with apologia. For Gomez and Ruff-
ing, fair country flingers themselves,
boast a combined record of only one
Pitching differences are the only
measurable ones between the two
clubs, because no unit has yet been
devised which can calculate the dis-
tance between both teams' batting.
DiMaggio, Gehrlg, Dickey, Selkirk,
Rolfe, Lazzeri, et al are sluggers of
merit, and where will the Giants get
sufficient power abat to match them?
So your venturesome columnist
likes the Yankees.
Wanta Bet?.. .
Jack Doyle, the Broadway bookie,
comes up with some interesting odds
on the Series, to-wit:
Series-Two to five against the
Yankees; eight to five against the
First Game-Seven to ten
against the Yanks; eleven to ten
against the Giants.
Winning first two games-Six
to five against Yanks; four to one
against Giants.
Winning four straight-Six to

one against Yanks; sixteen to one
against Giants.
Home runs-Even money Di-
Maggio doesn't make two homers
in series; three to one DiMaggio
doesn't make three homers; three
to two Ott doesn't mke two
homers; three to one Ott doesn't
make three homers in series.
Retort Acid: Jim Doyle, Cleveland
Plain Dealer's sports columnist, un-
der the caption "Lachrymose Arbor-
ites, writes-
"A squad of gendarmes up in Ann.
Arbor were forced to use tear gas last
Friday night for the dispersal of a
mob of University of Michigan stu-
dents who had gotten all the way out
of line after a wild football rally.
"Michigan State's grid gang had
the same mob weeping even more co-
piously the next afternoon but with-
out calling a single tear gas bomb
into play ...''
Dots and Dashes-If two backs
camp under a punt, and one raises his
arm to' indicate a fair catch, but the;
other grabs the ball and runs with it,
what's the ruling??? . . . It's been
bothering Bud Benjamin, and now
he's got me doing it . . . Bob Cooper
plans to enternlaw school next year
and prefers not to hobble into the
Quadrangle-for which we admire
him . . . Hunk Anderson has one of
the worst cases of athlete's foot seen
in the training room in years ...
Cappy Cappon believes Bernie
Jefferson, colored Northwestern
star, was the most improved
Wildcat player ... Jeff returned
a kickoff 85 yards for a score last
Saturday ... Charlie Gehringer
is the eighteenth Detroit man in
38 seasons to win the batting title,
Ty Cobb doing it 12 times .. .
