First Series in 28 Years for Tribe;
Face Braves Tomorrow for Opener
(See Pictures of Boudreau and Bearden, Page 3)
BOSTON,-(P')-Cleveland's battling Indians loosed a searing
home run barrage behind stout-hearted five-hit pitching by Lefty
Gene Bearden to crush the Boston Red Sox, 8 to 3, in a "sudden death"
playoff for the American League pennant.
Two mighty blasts into the left field screen at Fenway Park by
Manager Lou Boudreau and a three-run homer by third baseman Ken
Keltner high outside the orchard-all within the first five innings-
gave the Tribesmen all the runs they needed to humble the Hose and
qualify for their first world series in 28 years.
* * * *
THE INDIANS will oppose the Boston Braves in the fall classic
beginning here tomorrow.
Bearden, 28-year-old Purple Heart veteran of the war in the
Pacific, pitched his second complete game in three days and
would have blanked the fearsome Sox sluggers for the last eight
innings but for an error behind him by second baseman Joe
Gordon in the sixth.
Led by Boudreau with his two circuit smashes and two line
singles, the Indians bashed two Boston flingers, Denny Galehouse
and Ellis Kinder, for 13 solid blows and were never under pressure
after Keltner delivered his three-run blast in the fourth.
The 36-YEAR-OLD Galehouse, a surprise nomination by Manager
Joe McCarthy, was driven to the showers by Keltner's homer, his 31st
of the year. Kinder gave up the last eight Cleveland hits and four
A crowd of just under 34,000 saw the Cleveland players put
on a wild demonstration as they rushed for the dressing room
after the final out.
Despite a newly-fitted artificial leg, youthful president Bill Veeck
of the Tribe half-ran clear across the infield to join his men and help
whack Bearden's broad shoulders.

MuiC1pl Excise Tax on.
Amusements Is Considered
With an eye to Ann Arbor's increasing size and the High Cost of
Living, the City Council last night contemplated a municipal excise
tax on football tickets, show prices and other amusements.
After councilmen considered what a 10 per cent tax on Wolver-
ine gridiron receipts would net, the Council unanimously, passed a>
resolution calling for a Mayor's Committee on City Financing. The
committee would study excise taxes and other means of adding to the
ALDERMAN A. D. MOORE, professor of electrical engineering,
proposed the resolution. He stated that city expenses would rise $100,-
000 in the coming year.

VANDENBERG predicted the
election of Republican Thomas E.
Dewey as President in indirect but
unmistakable language. He said
the Republicans cooperated with
the administration on a bi-parti-
san foreign policy and added:
"I express the belief that our

they are the 'opposition' come

publican role in the nation's so-
called "bipartisan" foreign policy

He said that during the past four
years efforts to take American for-

tics" have "to an important de-
gree" succeeded, with credit to
both major parties.
"In the face of any foreign
problems, our unity is as impor-
tant as our atom bombs," he de-
clared. "It is particularly impor-

WHITE HOUSE PARLEYS:
T ruman Patches Up Feud with Ickes
WASHINGTON - (/P) - Presi-
dent Truman put patches on a
couple of old political feuds and
prepared to hit the road again on
Wednesday, northward bound.
He was described as confident
of "great progress" in recent
Former secretary of the interior,
Harold L. Ickes, who quit the Tru-
man Cabinet in wrath, paid his
first visit to the White House in
two and one-half years. He came
out smiling, said the chat was "en-
tirely friendly" and promised a
statement "in good time."
A. F. WHITNEY, the railroad
trainmen's chief who once vowed
to throw his union's treasury into
a fight against Mr. Truman but
changed his mind, disclosed plans
to campaign for the Democrats
across the country.
After these two parleys, the
President plotted two more
weeks of grinding train-and-
plane campaigning in a huddle
with Senator J. Howard Mc-
Grath, Democratic chairman.
Mr. Truman has been home
only two days from a 140-plus
speech tour of the West.
The campaign flag will be
hoisted over the Presidential spe-
cial train Wednesday for a thrust
into industrial Pennsylvania, New
Jersey, and upstate New York.
PRESS SECRETARY Charles
G. Ross promised "a major speech
on atomic energy" at the kickoff
in Philadelphia tomorrow night.
Major talks also will be made at
Jersey City on Thursday and Buf-
falo on Friday, with lesser
speeches sprinkled along the right
Then, after a one-day pause
in Washington, Mr. Truman will
strike west on Sunday for major
or near-major speeches at Ak-
ron, O., on October 11 and on
the succeeding days at Spring-

waukee, Wis., and Indianapolis.
The fortnight's travel will be
rounded out with a "non-politi-

ways this trip.

With the next meeting of the
American Veterans Committee
campus chapter only two days
way, a flurry of activity has
erupted on the AVC front.
A majority of the members of
AVC's executive committee, com-
posed of supporters of chairman
Dave Babson, has scheduled a se-
ries of informal talks before va-
rious campus grovips. The talks
are designed to better acquaint
interested veterans with the issues
at stake at Thursday's meeting
and to recruit new members.
* * *
ACCORDING TO Everett Bo-
vard, vice-chairman of AVC, the
discussions will be strictly "non-
partisan" in character.
Bovard is scheduled to speak
today at the Robert Owen,
Michigan, and Nakamura coop-
erative houses and to the West
Quad council at the Union.
Quentin Nesbitt, AVC's record-
ing secretary, will present a sim-
ilar talk before the Association
of Independent Men sometime be-
fore Thursday's meeting.
WHEN INFORMED of the pro-
posed talks by Bovard and Nesbitt,
John Sloss, who last week pro-
posed the resolution demanding
recall proceedings against Dave
Babson, gave his wholehearted
support to the plan-"as long as
the talks are non-partisan," he
Sloss also suggested that some
of "the rank and file" accom-
pany Bovard and Nesbitt "so
that other views might be given
if any questions come up about
the recent fracas in AVC."
Other evidence of increased AVC
activity was a "fact sheet" mailed
out to all active campus members
which consisted of recent excerpts
from The Daily. Quoted state-
ments were presented without
comment and members asked to
make their own decisions.
The sheets were signed by Sloss
and five others.

IQ MIGHT TUMBLE:
Lower Birth-rate of College
Graduates Worries Experts
By JANET WATTS
College graduates are having fewer children these days.
And population experts are worried about it.
This lower birth rate might have a definite effect on the na-
tional I.Q. the Population Reference Bureau has declared in its annual
survey of the subject.
DR. HORACE M. Miner, University professor of sociology, ad-
mitted that the decrease in the number of children might mean a low-
ering of the national IQ, but stated that the change would be relatively
