hopes with Dizzy Dean (7-1) danger-
ots because of his "moxie" when the
chips are down. Gabby has one ace in
the hole-the veteran Charley Root
-who might conceivably be the How-
ard Ehmke of the series.

advantage in that they are in top

Do the Cubs have any advan-
tage at all? Well, a few. Their
pitchers are tops in that impor-
tant earned run column. Dean
with 2.52, Bryant with 2.88, and
Lee and Root with 3.60 are all
ahead of the Yankee moundsmen,
whose top man in this depart-
ment is Ruffing at 3.78. The rest
of th staff all averaged over four
opposition runs a game. The Cub
average was 3.87, the Yanks fin-
,ished at 4.50.
More important than any of the
above statistics, which incidentally I
put forth with some qualms, is the
psychological advantage. The Cubs
blasted to the top*
with a September
spurt of 21 victories,
four losses, and two h
ties in 27 games.

Then too there is Harnett and
Tony Lazzeri. Gabby, baseball's most
lovable character, is the core of the
entire Cub drive. His stellar work be-
hind the plate has undoubtedly felt
the sting of father time, but his bench
duties have quickened in tempo. With
Lazzeri the ex-Yankee beside him,
you have a real board of strategy.
Yep, on paper you can't touch those
Yanks. But baseball is a very dated
product, and apparently the August
wares have become somewhat stale.
I'll take the Cubs.

CHICAGO, Oct. 4-(P)-n this
exciting World Series eve, Chicago
was a baseball mad city of hope, rum-
ors and hunches and they all pointed
to an old swaggering hero of the big
show-Jerome Hanna "Dizzy" Dean.

the late Cub pennant dash, for Chi-

all in a bold dramatic attempt to
upset the Yankee gunners, spread like
a forest fire.
"Red" Deserves To Start
Neither Hartnett nor McCarthy
went through any great amount of
master-minding to decide upon his
pitching choice. Hartnett's decision to
start Lee, winner of 22. games this
season, caused no surprise. Baseball
men generally figured the starting
honors for the Yankees rested be-
tween Ruffing, winner of 21 games
this season-the best record in the
American League-and Lefty Gomez.
McCarthy made known the selec-
tion of his ace righthander over south-
paw Gomez shortly after the arrival
of his slaughter' house Yankees.
"It's Ruffing, boys," he said quietly,
as if he had not intended otherwise.
Hartnett heard of the selection and
then snapped decisively: "Lee goes
Hartnett's desire to make his selec-
tion after McCarthy's was interpreted
as indicating he would have named
Dean, his only logical alternative, if
the Yankees had named Gomez.
Gomez has won every one of his
five world series starts and is regard-
ed by many as the Yanks' best bet
against the Cubs.
On this basis, Hartnett, in gam-
bling with Dean, seemed to prefer to
pit him against Gomez instead of'

Cubs one bit. Chicago, gaining the
National League championship in the
next to last day of the season, upset
the sports world by winning the flag
in the greatest finish in 30 years. The
players figure, just like Hartnett does,
that they are still as hot as they were
and possess the spirit to bowl over
the powerful Yankees.

There is not-and never has been-any other pen

the grit and gum in ordinary writing inks.
