No Four-Game Series
The experts were in virtually unan-
imous agreement that the series,
would .go from five to seven games,
ending the string of straight-game
sweeps the Yankees piled up in over-
whelming the Chicago Cubs ,in 1938
and the Cincinnati Reds in 1939.
But there was the same unanimity
of opinion that the Yankees would
win in .whatever distance was re-
quired. Conceding the Dodgers may
have a small advantage in the pitch-
ing, due to a compact staff, most ob-
servers fixed their ieye on the super-
ior fielding of the Yankees and their
ability to blast out extra-base blows,
especially home runs.
Batting Strength Even
The Yankees have no edge in per-
centage batting-the Dodgers having
three .300 hitters to New York's two,
although Charley Keller is almost in
this class with a .28-but they have
three outfielders each of whom has
collected 30 or more home runs and
they have an infield that this year
tied the major league record for
double plays.
Besides they have a club that is
seasoned to the heavy strain of a
World Series, with a whole' raft of
veterans who have made the Yankees
virtually untouchable in the post-
season classics with four consecutive
world championships up to last year.

would be used exclusively for of-

they would see action on both units.
But last week Athletic Director
Fritz Crisler, who is president of
the American Football Coaches As-
sociation, sent out a letter to more
than 400 other mentors, suggest-
ing four means by which his fellow,1
tutors of the game could make the
rule work. Fritz urged application
of the rule permitting only 25 sec-
onds for the offensive team to get
its play under way even when sub-
stitutions were being made. If the
spirit of the new rule is, respected,
he said, it will benefit the game,
players, coaches and spectators.
