Dickey Equals
Classic Mark
With Four Hits

Today In Bold Attempt
To Upset Yankees
WRIGLEY FIELD, Chicago, Oct. 5.
-(AP)-Everything a championship
team must have to win great games
-power, pitching, superb fielding and
that intangible something called luck
combined to send the mighty New
York Yankees off victorious in their
first quest for a third straight, rec-
ord-breaking sweep of World Series
baseball plunder this chill, blustery
Before a near record crowd of 43.-
642 customers, who packed every nook
and cranny of the remodeled sta-
dium, the Yankees chilled the hot
Chicago Cubs, 3-1, in the opener.
They beat the best Gabby Hartnett
and his gallants had to offer, belting
their pitching pride, General Bill Lee,
for 12 hits, four of them by catcher
Bill Dickey, who equalled a series
Dean Vs. Gomez
The defeat left the Cubs with no
alternative than to take a long gamble
in tomorrow's second game by send-
ing the once great, but now ailing,
Dizzy Dean to the mound against
the long invincible Lefty Gomez.
Dickey and Big Charles (Red) Ruf-
fing, strong-arm men of the Yankee
batting and pitching departments,
were the heroes today for the World
Champions, but pressing them was al-
most the entire lineup of the cham-
pions, who came through not only
at bat but afield.
Chicago fans expected nothing but
power but as they huddled together
they saw one of the greatest infield
combinations of the modern age in
Lou Gehrig, Flash Gordon, Frank
Crosetti, and Red Rolfe. They made
one error-Tommy Henrich made that
trying to make an impossible catch-
but they clicked so superbly behind
Ruffing's nine-hit pitching that three
of the four times the Cubs opened
innings with hits, their hopes were
snuffed out.
Opportunity Knocked
Opportunity, or luck, as you want
it, rapped its knuckles but once for the
World Conquerors and they cashed in.
In the second inning, 'after Lee had
excited his admirers with two strike-
outs in the opening inning, the
champs combined two hits, both
singles, with Lee's only walk and an
error by Billy Herman to manufac-
ture the two runs they needed to win.
The Cubs always seemed to threat-
en, but tight defense and Ruffing's
control,,,so perfect he walked not a
batsman, carried them through.
The Yanks were not alone in field-
ing gems, the Cubs tyings the Yanks
with a pair of lightning double plays.
Great catches were made all after-
noon as the wind howled and the
Ruppert guns boomed. Gordon, Cro-
setti and Gehrig each turned sure
hits into outs.
Ripper Gets Hot
So did Ripper Collins, the big mon-
ey playing man operating on first,
Bill Jurges, who made perhaps the
greatest catch with a bare-hand stop
of Joe DiMaggio's terrific smash in
the fourth inning, and Herman,
though his one error in the second
sent in the first Yankee run and set
up another.
As fortunes go, only DiMaggio,
leading hitter of the champs, and
Ruffing went hitless in the well-
timed consistent attack. Henrich and
Gordon had a pair of hits, the oth-
ers settling on one each-all but one
coming off Lee's delivery before he
was jerked for a pinch hitter in the

eighth and replaced by Jack Russell in
the ninth. Russell yielded but one
hit-4 double by Crosetti-in the
inning he worked.
Gate Receipts Heavy
The large crowd, second largest in
Wrigley Field's history and largest
since the beautiful park was re-
modeled, paid $210,025 to see-and
they saw-one of the best played
games in series history. It was a
good day for the players, too, as their
pool swelled to $107,112.7§.
Odds on the Yankees, naturally,
dropped to almost prohibitive figures
as a result of the defeat.

Highlights Of The Series Opener


CHICAGO, Oct. 5-()--The Yan-
kees looked as blase as Park Avenue
The Cubs, hot as the Indian sum-
mer sun during their pennant surge,
seemed chilled by the gale-like winds
of a dreary day.
That's a thumbnail sketch of the
proceedings witnessed by 43,642 spec-
tators who sat hunched and cold this
afternoon as the New York World
Champions confidently took the first
step toward realization of a third
straight world title.
That was today's picture. Tomor-
row the eccentric Lefty Gomez hurls
against the unpredictable Dizzy Dean
-and they may light a firecracker
under a series which opened in such
matter-of-fact fashion.
The Cubs played brilliantly afield
but they appeared unable to recapture
the fire and fight with which they
subdued the Pittsburgh Pirates to win
the flag. Old Gabby Hartnett visited
pleasantly through the afternoon with
Umpire Charley Moran; Bill Lee took
a couple of "cat naps" and Carl Rey-
nolds and Bill Herman obligingly hit
'em where they were. It was all very

satisfactory for the McCarthy com-
The Yanks had the llght the Cubs
were supposed to have. Frankie Cro-
setti bellowed loudly when he fanned
in the first and Lou Gehrig made a
lusty beef which nearly had him
tossed out of the game in the eighth.
Lou, thinking he should have drawn
a walk only to be crAlled out as the
ball, caught by Hartnett, ticked his
bat, started as if to push Umpire Mor-
an around.
Mayor La Guardia of New Yok,
who occupied a box with June O'Dea
(Mrs. Lefty Gomez) next to the Yan-
kee dugout, constituted a one-man
cheering section for the Bronx Bom-
bers. He cut loose with a lusty, un-
mayorlike yell when Dickey's single
sent Gehrig to third in the second
inning. Across the field, adjacent to
the Cub dugout, Mayor Edward J.
Kelly of Chicago sat rather quietly
through most of the afternoon. He's
bet Mayor La Guardia a prize hog
against a box of cigars that the Cubs
will win the series and it looks as
though the New York executive won't
have to worry about bacon this win-
