Bucky Hurls Reds'

Back Into


With 4-0 Triumph

Holds Detroit Powerhouse
To Five Scattered Hits;
Clouts Homer In Eighth
Cincies Blast Rowe
From Box In First
CROSLEY FIELD, Cincinnati, Oct.
7.-(P)-Bucky Walters, the wonder
boy of the National League pitchers
for two years, pitched and batted the
Cincinnati Reds to a 4 to 0 conquest
over the Detroit Tigers today and
forced the 1940 World Series to its
limit of seven games.
Just as he hurled three-hit ball to
tame the Tigers in the second game
of the series and level the standing
last Thursday, Bucky today pitched
a nearly flawless five-hit brand to
strangle them into a shutout.
But almost more than his pitch-
ing, the 30,481 hopeful hometown
ans goggled at the home run their
hero hit over the left field wall in
the eighth inning as a sort of dis-'
gainful parting gesture to Detroit.
Bengals Humiliated
This blow, the second homer Wal-
ters hit this year, only served to
heap humiliation on the Tigers. It
came off young Fred Hutchinson long
after the Reds had sewed up the
victory by shelling Lynwood (School-
boy) Rowe off the mound in the first
In two respects the struggle fol-
]owed the pattern of the other Series
games-first that each rival alter-
nates victory and second that the
games usually are decided early and
finish one-sided.
The Tigers banked heavily on Rowe
repudiating his performance against
Walters in their previous tangle, when
he was knocked out by a five-run
uprising in the fourth inning. In-
stead the same stuff that the Reds
liked before they liked today.
Bill Werber, the Series' chief
troublemaker for opposing pitchers,
started the steamup with a terrific
liner against the fence in the first
inning, good for a double. Mike Mc-
Cormick sacrificed him to third and
then Ival Goodman, Frank McCor-
mick and Jim Ripple hit consutive
singles to send Rowe shuffling to
the showers.
Werber scored on a hit by Good-
man who raced home from second on
Ripple's sharp shot to center.
Gorsica Stars
John Gorsica, who relieved Rowe
in his other fiasco, came up with an-
other creditable fireman's perform-
ance, stopping this rally and allow-
ing only one run and five hits in the
6 2-3 innings he pitched.
But as on the other occasion, Gor-
sica's work was wasted because Wal-
ters kept whipping his fast downer
to the plate where the Tigers could
do nothing with it. Bucky also bene-
fited from the sort of tight defense
that brought the Reds their pennant,
but which has shown only in spasms
in this series.
As the result of the Reds' triumph,
the 1940 World Series will be the
first to go seven games since the
St. Louis Cardinals beat these same
Tigers in 1934 for the last World
Championship won by a National
League club.
Strategic Position
Cincinnati was in a good strate-
gic position to repeat this victory by
having big Paul Derringer ready for
the final game with two day's rest
since whipping the Bengals in De-
troit Saturday.
Manager Bill McKechnie for once
had no hesitation in naming Der-
ringer as his certain starter.
The Tigers appeared almost as cer-
tain to come back with Buck New-
som on one day's rest and hope that

Fido Loses His Right
To One Good Free Bite
LANSING, Oct. 7.-(/P)-Fido lost
his right to one free bite today.
The Supreme Court, by a four to
three decision, overturned Michigan's
time-honored legal maxim that a
dog may not be considered vicious
until it has bitten somebody.
In the damage suit of Mattie Mas-
sengile, laundress, against Mr. and
Mrs. Frank S. Piper, of Detroit, her
employers, the court held that the
Pipers should have been aware their
dog was vicious because of previous
unruly actions, even though he had
bitten no one before biting the laun-
dress. The opinion overturned a
decision of the Wayne Circuit which
deniednMrs. Massengile damages.

'Petty Hitlers'

In New Jersey Speech
Roosevelt Tours
Upstate New York
NEWARK, N.J., Oct. 7. -(AP)-
Wendell L. Willkie said tonight that
Democratic "bosses" of New Jersey,
New York and Illinois were "the pil-
lars of the New Deal democracy" and
charged that President Roosevelt
sought "to perpetuate his power
through petty Hitlers."
The Republican presidential nomi-
nee spoke in Newark City Stadium
over a nationwide Mutual-WOR ra-
dio hookup, ending a day-long motor
tour of the heavily-populated areas
of northern New Jersey, including
Jersey City, the Democratic strong-
hold of Frank Hague, mayor and
state Democratic leader.
Near the close of his prepared ad-
dress tonight, Willkie said, "The head
of the New Deal Party has had some
things to say, recently, about the
attitude of Hitler and Mussolini to-
ward our elections in America.
"Not only has he pushed America
close to the wars in Europe and
Asia," Willkie added. "He now seeks
to drag the wars of Europe and Asia
into American politics.
"He tells us that he, and he alone,
represents democracy.
"But I say-that he cannot repre-
sent the democracy that I stand for
while he seeks to perpetuate his pow-
er through petty Hitlers right here
in our own land."

Resume Talks
Move Hints Soviet Dislike
Of Axis Triple Alliance
WASHINGTON, Oct. 7. -(AP)-
American-Russian diplomatic talks
were resumed here unexpectedly to-
night after a lapse of two months
and resulted in new speculation that
Russia may not like the Japanese-

German-Italian alliance.
Constantine Oumansky, Soviet am-
bassador, called at the State Depart-
ment in the early evening and con-
ferred with Sumner Welles, Under-
secretary of State. The only com-
ment available at the Department
was that it was a resumption of the
talks begun last summer.
Their resumption at this time was
considered significant in some quar-
ters because of the new triple alli-
ance, although that pact contained
an assurance that it did not disturb
existing relations between Germany
and Russia.

LONDON, Oct. 8. (Tuesday)-(P)

Deprived of their timetable as-

days, the raiders swept back with

areas were sprayed with high ex-
plosive and incendiary bombs.
The night attacks were a contin-
uation of mass daylight forays in
which the RAF broke up formation

four to six miles above the city. The
number of raiders was declared au-
thoritatively to have numbered near-
ly 500.

BERLIN, Oct. 7.--(P)-Authorized
Nazi sources said today German
troops had entered Rumania because
a watch against undercover British
activity in that kingdom's oil fields
was necessary.
(In Bucharest, Rumanian officials
said reports of the arrival of German
troops were "premature." A govern-
ment statement mentioned close col-
laboration and technical aid prom-
ised the Rumanian army, especially
by Germany.)
There was no indication of how
many German troops entered Ru-
mania, but it was pointed out that
a German general (whose rank might
mean he is commander of any unit
from a brigade to a field army) has
been reported there.
Of primary importance to Ger-
many is uninterrupted delivery of
Rumani's oil and gasoline, essen-
tial to the Nazi war machine.
Authorized sources, hinting that
Germany may have decided to police
the oil fields, declared Germany fears
sabotage by British agents in Con-
stanta and other Rumanian oil cen-
Also, they said, Britain might try
to get at Rumania's oil by way of
Turkey. Franz Von Papen, German
ambassador to Ankara, has been a
frequent visitor at the Turkish for-
eign office recently.
It may be assumed, these sources
said, that as one outcome of last
Friday's Brennero meeting between
Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini
the Turks will be put under diplo-
matic pressure and a possible mili-
tary threat.
Alleged plans of the erstwhile
British-French allies td "win the war
by creating big new battlefronts
against Germany"-among them Ru-

last July by DNB, official German
