Sain Faces Feller
In Boston Opener
Of World Series
BOSTON-0P)-Two of baseball's greatest righthanders, Bobby
Feller of the Cleveland Indians and Johnny Sain of the Boston Braves,
will fire 'em across this afternoon in the opening game of the 1948
World Series at Braves Field.
FOR FELLER, the old Iowa farm boy, the honor of pitching the
first game of the classic comes as a fitting climax to one of the
brilliant careers of modern times.
Though he was off his feed a good part of the season, the big
fast-baller won 19 while losing 15 for the American League Cham-
Sain, ace of the Braves, mound staff, turned in 24 victories in the
regular season while losing 15, and it is largely on his pitching that

... hurlers to duel in first game
the National League winners must pin their hopes of beating
red-hot Cleveland club.


TICKETS OF ANY sort were at a great premium yesterday, and
the Braves' medium-size park is certain to be packed to its absolute
limit by some 40,000 fans when Said, with a huge helping of tobacco
in his left cheek, fogs his first throw across at 1 p.m.
Cleveland, terribly impressive in whaling the Boston Red Sox
in Monday's play-off for the American League flag, is a heavy
favorite among the game's authorities to splatter the Braves in
the series.
Most -of the experts doubt it will go anywhere near the limit of
seven games.
In Boston, though, the fans have just finished watching Man-
ager Billy 8outhworth's wonder boys win their pennant breezing,
and they harbor a sublime conviction they will mow down the
rival aborigines from the West. They concede that, on paper, the
thing might look one-sided, but they refuse to read the figures.
BOTH PILOTS ANNOUNCED their starting line-ups, and there
were no surprises. Most cheering to Braves' supporters was the news
that Eddie Stanky, scrappy little second-baseman, is ready to go
after a long convalescence from a broken ankle.

University employees.

THIS PHASE of the Commun-
ity Fund Drive will end on Oc-
tober 18, at which time the gen-
eral red feather drive will begin.
The University quota this year
is $25,000, according to Professor
John Arthos, campus chairman
for the drive. This represents an
increase of 15 per cent over last
year's quota.
Prof. Arthos said that due to
the rising costs in maintaining the
15 social agencies supported by the
Community Fund, it has been'hec-
essary to raise the quota.

Although the University staff
has not increased, he expects that
contributions will be in accord
with the new quota.
Ability to Tall
In Public Asset
To Engineers
Public speaking is one of the
most important auxiliary tools an
engineer can possess, according to
Clint Booth, past president of
Sigma Rho Tau, opening the
group's organization meeting
last night.
The main purpose of Sigma
Rho Tau is to help engineers ac-
quire the ability of expressing
themselves and -feeling their ideas,
Booth said.
Ellsworth Renier, president of
Sigma Rho Tau, compared the
technical engineer to a diamond
in nature. It only takes a few
hours of additional effort to make
what appears to be just another
pebble, a shining and valuable

All agreed with Frank Spit-
zer of Austria when he said,
"Europeans don't mention war
because they feel the whole
question is up to Russia and the
United States. Europe is mere-
ly waiting."
Only Vandenberg of Holland
expressed optimism. He called war
a physical impossibility.
"Russia was hit harder than
Europe so how can she afford to
fight when Europe can't," he said.

VANDENBERG stressed the
fact that Europe feels more secure
now that the United States has
assumed an international role and
Britain is in the thick of things
rather than outside trying to
maintain a balance of power.
As to why another war is be-

Vishinsky Claims
Russian Boycott
(By The Associated Press)
PARIS-Fiery Andrei Vishinsky
announced Russia will boycott the
Berlin debate in the United Na-
tions Security Council.
He demanded the floor and dis-
closed his decision immediately
after the Council voted 9 to 2 to
hear the full details of the East-
West dispute- over Berlin.
* * *
VISHINSKY left up in the air
the question of whether he would
be present when the Council re-
sumes its meetings.
Smiling broadly at newsmen
who pressed for his plans, he
"I made my position perfectly
clear. That is, I am not going
to take part in deliberations on
this question."
"Do you mean you will not at-
tend-there is a difference be-
tween attend and take part," one
reporter queried.
* * *" " *
"I SEE NO difference," Vishin-
sky replied.
Then, in a short statement to
the tense Council, Vishinsky
summed up his arguments that
the Council decision was illegal
and the Berlin crisis should be
handled by the four-power
council of foreign ministers.
In a calm voice and without
gestures, he announced the deci-
sion to bpycott:

both British Foreign Secretary

They were reported concerned
about the reaction the move

The dispatch said Marshall's

step toward the international re-
