Injured Gomez
And Tompson
To Pitch Today
Red's Refuse To Concede
Pennant To New York;
Thousands Cheer Team
CINCINNATI, Oct. 6.-(AP)-Only
two games away from humiliating1
erasure from the 1939 World Series,
and facedwith the prospect of meet- I
ing the third member of the New t
York Yankees dreaded "sore arm"
pitching squad, the Cincinnati Reds
came home today stubbornly refusing
to admit they were whipped yet.
And the Rhineland fans agreed
with them, despite a Yankee display
of hitting dynamite at a lengthy bat-k
ting drill in Crosley Field and the
news that Lefty Gomez, injured side
and all, would be the world cham-e
pions' choice to do
the hurling chores in
#.┬░lk|MiNtomorrow's. third-
game against the
Reds' freshman find,
Junior Thompson.1
Several thousand
of the more wide-
eyed fans in this
baseball-rabid town
turned up at the
4 railroad station asC
the Reds' special
Thompson train pulled in from
New York, where the National
League champions dropped the first
two games of the current fall set.
They cheered their boys on with
such figurative back-slapping roars
as "You're home now boys; let's go,''
and "We'll show 'em up out here."
Hundreds more of the faithful were
jammed on the sidewalks all around,
the hotel that housed baseball head-
quarters, and they added their greet-t
ings to those of the horde at the sta-
tion.
The Yankees, arriving only a few
minutes after their foes, also received
a noisy welcome, with the loudest
recognition of all going to Joe Di-
Maggio, who hasn't been altogether
a ball of fire at bat .so far in the
series; Monte Pearson, who turned in
a two-hit performance in yesterday's
game to equal the best elbowing job
ever done in. World Series history, andt
big Charley-the-Red Ruffing, wlise
four-hitter Wednesday sent the
Yanks off to a victorious first-game
start.
DiMaggio Likes Cincy Fences
Deadpan Joe DiMaggio, the Ameri-
can League's batting champion this
year, faced Spud Chandler in the
batting drill and whacked a fast one
clear over the center field wall, 384
feet away. "That's a real nice wall,"
he commented. Then he turned his
attention to the left field barrier, and
banged one against the upper rim of
that fence.
The Reds didn't even look at their
home field. Manager Bill McKechnie
called them all to the park shortly
after arriving, gave them a "skull"
session in their dressing room for a
few minutes, then dismissed the squad
with a brief "see you. tomorrow," and
the boys went home without appear-
ing on the diamond.
Although Gomez still is wearing a
wide polo belt under his "monkey
suit" to relieve any pressure on his
right side, in which, he strained a
muscle two weeks ago, he will defi-
*nitely go against the Rhinelanders
tomorrow unless he informs Manager
Joe McCarthy he is not ready. M-
X arthy announced the Castilian
southpaw's selection today, and El
Goofo then went through a brief
workout Afterward herand McCarthy
put their heads together in a brief
huddle, and Lefty informed the boss

he-was "okay."

Indiana-Iowa
Contest Starts
Big Ten Race
Gophers Meet Nebraska;
Irish, Georgia Tech
Continue Old Feud
By MASE GOULD
While Coach Fritz Crisler's second
Michigan machine is attempting to
hurl back the. challenge of Michigan'
State in the Stadium, there will .be
plenty of action on more than 20 big
fronts today.
The first Big Ten tussle of the sea-
son will pit the Indiana Hoosier:s
against up-and-coming Iowa at Iowa
City. The Hoosiers were tied by Ne-
braska, 7-7, in the final quarter last
Saturday, while Coach Eddie Ander-
son's first Hawkeye aggregation
started things off with a flourish by
routing South Dakota, 41-0.
Minnesota, fresh from a 62-0 white-
wash of Arizona, encounters stiffer
opopsition from one of her arch ene-
mies, Nebraska; Northwestern's
highly touted eleven has a tartar for
its opening game in the Oklahoma
Sooners, last ;year's Big Six cham-
pions and possessor of a 7-7 tie with
Southern Methodist last week; Ohio
State has a not too friendly date
with Missouri's Paul Christman and
company, who swamped Colorado last
week, 30-0; and Wisconsin, after tak-
ing a narrow 14-13 decision over Mar-
quette, faces Texas University.
One of the highlights in the Mid-
west will be Notre Dame's meeting
with the Engineers from Georgia
'Tech. Tle Fighting Irish downed
Purdue with a field goal a week ago,
while Tech will be inaugurating its
season today. Last year, Notre Dame
came out on top, 14-6.
The big game in the East promises
to be that between Fordharm and Ala-
bama. The Rams are definitely Rose
Bowl conscious, while the Crimson
Tide is reported to be one of the out
standing teams of the South. It's a
natural.
The Pacific Coast swings into full
gait with four top-notch games. Cali-
fornia, still smarting from a 6-0 de-
feat at the hands of Amos Alonzo
Stagg's College .of the Pacific eleven,
runs smack into St. Mary's this af-
ternoon.
