In Pitching Duel

Deciding Run Sent
Across By Myers
CROSLEY FIELD, Cincinnati, Oct.
8.-(P)-The heroic Cincinnati Reds
surged from behind in the seventh
inning today to tame the Detroit
Tigers 2 to 1 and win the 1940 World's
Championship of baseball behind the
dead-game hurling of lion-hearted
Paul Derringer.
The National League's first tri-
umph since 134 was a throbbing
struggle that stirred the blood of
everyone of the 26,800 spectators at
the seventh and deciding game of
the World Series.,
Derringer and bulging Buck New-
som, each of whom had worked in
two 'previous series installments,
waged as tight a battle as two cap-
able and courageous hurlers ever
could throw at each other and for
some time it seemed the outcome
might hinge on one error by an
outstanding fielder of the series.
In the third inning Bill Werber,
the Reds' valiant third baseman,
made a wild throw to first and let
in the Tigers' only run-an unearned
tally that kept the Reds stewing un-
til they finally burst their bonds in
the seventh for the winning runs.
The home town fans, hoping anxi-
ously for their first world champion-
ship since 1919 when the Chicago
"Black Sox" sold out to gamblers,
stood up to stretch in the seventh
and were still standing and shouting
encouragement when Frank (Buck)
McCormick bounced a terrific liner
against the high green wall in left
field, 380 feet from the plate.
Jim Ripple Doubles
Then red-haired, freckled Jimmy
Ripple shot the first pitch against
the screen in front of the right field
bleachers, 370 feet away,, and McCor-
mick crossed the plate with the tying
No team is any better at getting
home one vital run than the Reds,
and Manager Bill McKechnie maneu-
vered the winning tally with as much
care as he ever exercised.
He had catcher Jim Wilson lay
down a sacrifice bunt to bring Ripple
to third. He put in big Ernie Lom-
bardi to pinch hit for Eddie Joost
and, when Manager Del Baker rushed
out of the dugout and ordered Lom-
bardi intentionally walked, Lonnie
Frey was sent in to run for "Schnoz-
Little Billy Myers waited out a 3
and 1 count and then lifted a tre-
mendous fly that Barney McCosky
caught with his back against the
center field fence, 385 feet away,
Ripple racing home after the catch
with the crucial score.
Run Breaks Tension
That broke the tension of the
series' tightest game and one of the
most memorable in many years. It
was the perfect climax to the first
million dollar series since 1937 and
the first to go seven games since the
St. Louis Cardinals beat these same
Detroit Tigers in 1934.
Once ahead the Reds were im-
pregnable. Derringer was nicked for
a single by Charley Gehringer at the
start of the eighth, but he retired
the next six batters in order and in
the last inning while McKechnie had
both Bucky Walters and Joe Beggs
warming up in the bull pen, Derrin-
ger didn't let the Tigers hit the ball
out of the infield.
He should have won by a shutout,
but the early part of the game was
packed with unusual plays and situ-
ations and one of them unravelled
from the wrong end for the Reds.
Sullivan Hits Single
Billy Sullivan, the Detroit catcher,
started the trouble in the third in-

ning by beating out a grounder along
the first base line ahead of Frank
McCormick's throw to Derringer.
Newsom sacrificed him to second and,
after Dick Bartell popped up, Mc-
Cosky walked.
Then Gehringer smacked a sizzling
grounder toward third and Werber
just knocked it down. He threw bad-
ly to first and before McCormick
could recover the ball, Sullivan raced
home and easily beat the belated

Hero Of Finale.

Blocking Of Wheat Shipments To Ports
In Far East Is Seen As Answer To Ais;
Vanguard Units Of German Army Move
into Undefended Rumanian Oil Fields
LONDON, Oct. 8 - Winston Churchill scornfully' dared Germany or
Italy today to try to aid Japan "while the British and United States fleets
are in being.," and answered Japan's bargain with the Axis by ordering the
Burma "Road to Mandalay" reopened for war supplies to China.
With the accent on the Far East, the Prime Minister delivered an
hour-long report to Commons. Outside, and clearly audible in the steep old
chamber, the sirens howled, anti-aircraft guns rumbled and bombs fell.
It was a chronicle of both success and failure, for Churchill disclosed
disciplinary action already was under way against those whose "errors" con-
tributed to failure of the "Free French" expedition last month against Dakar.
He disclosed that on Oct. 17 the Burma Road to China will be thrown
- open to continued movement of sup-
efis xs- plies-at the expiration of a three-
Defie A~iSmonth agreement with Tokyo which,
Churchill said, was intended to per-
mit Japan and China time to find
a just and equitable settlement of
their long and deadly quarrel."
>N Concerning Dakar, Churchill laid
the blame for the expedition's failure
on the "mischievous" passage of
three Vichy cruisers and three de-
stroyers past Gibraltar to Senegal,
where they fought off the "Free
9 French" landing force of General
de Gaulle, supported by British war-

U.S. Hits
At Japan
WASHINGTON, Oct. 8. - The
United States government, after
taking precautionary steps to get
Americans out of the Orient, today
cut off the flow of subsidized Amer-
ican wheat to Far Eastern ports,
most of which are controlled by the
Officials carefully refrained from
stating that this was another in the
series of stumbling blocks placed in
the way of Japan's march toward a
"anew order" in East Asia, but it was
generally considered to have'ethe
same general significance as the re-
cently ordered embargo of scrap
metal, useful in making munitions.
Ten million bushels of wheat or
wheat flour have been shipped to
Far Eastern ports since January 1
under a program in which the United
States grants export subsidies to en-
able exporters to compete in world
markets. Some of it went to the
Philippines (which were exempted
from today's order discontinuing the
subsidies) but much of it went to
Far Eastern ports. Asked whether
any of this wheat went to the Japan-
ese army in China, an official of the
agriculture department said he did
not know, but assumed so.
These developments occurred si-
multaneously with Britain's notice
to Japan that the Burma Road; would
be reopened for shipment of supplies
to China.
German Troops Begin
Occupation Of Rumania
BUCHAREST, Rumania, Oct 8. -
More than 4,000 German troops
crossed the Rumanian frontier to-
night as the mere vanguard, their
spokesmen said, of a larger force
coming here to defend the oil fields
and to train the Rumanian army to
"fight any kind of a war."
At about the same time, two Dan-
ube River barges loaded with anti-
aircraft guns and ammunition ar-
rived at Gieurgiu in charge of Ger-
man soldiers. They began at once
to transfer the equipment into 86
freight cars for transportation into
the oil fields.
German military sources declared
forces still to come would bring tanks,
planes, armored cars and anti- air-
craft artillery.
All this activity of the Nazi army
came at an hour when a diplomatic
crisis between Britain and Rumania
was developing, British Minister Sir
Reginald Hoare having already re-
quested an explanation of "the ap-
parent intention to garrison German
troops at strategic points" in the
rich Balkan kingdom.
But German officials denied any-
thing like a military occupation was
in view.
In some diplomatic circles it was
predicted Hoare's departure was im-
minent. Foreign observers saw little
