Figger Filberts Belittle Cards:
Brooklyn's Second Guessers
Decide Pennant Is In 'Bag'
William Dudley Pelley Is Tried On Sedition Charges
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK, July 30.--The socie-
ty of "Figger Filberts" held its first
meeting of the season in its padded-
cell clubrooms today and decided
that, barring a catastrophe like the
loss of Leo Durocher's voice, the
Brooklyn Dodgers are pretty close
to a cinch to hang onto their Na-
tional League pennant.
Since they disposed of the second-
place St. Louis Cardinals two out of
three in their just-concluded set,
the Gowanus bums are now sitting
in a spot where, if they play only .500
ball the rest of the way home, the
Cards would have to win 38 of their
remaining 58 games to beat them out.
This is a .655 percentage, and since
Craf t Work
the Cardinals have turned in only a
.625 mark so far this season, you
can plainly see it looks like a bad
cae of St. Louis blues.
What's more, of the 56 games the
Brooklyns still have to play, 21 of
them are with the bewildered Braves
and futile Phillies. And since the
Flatbush follies already have knocked
off these two clubs 19 times against
four losses, you don't need a crystal
ball to see that the doctor couldn't
have prescribed a better treatment
for the bums. At the same time, the
Cards still have 23 to go with Pitts-
burgh and Cincinnati, a pair of
clubs that have whipped St. Louis
10 times this year while losing only
11 to the Cards.
The way things stand now, Brook-
lyn has a record of 69 wins and 29
losses through Wednesday's games.
St. Louis, eight games back, has 60
and 36. Thus if the Dodgers win
only half their remaining games-
28-they'll wind up witi 97 victories
for the season. The Cards then
would have to win 38 to top them.
However, since the Dodgers have
shown no indication of coming
apart at the seams and dropping to
a .500 playing average, the chances
are they'll probably wind up this
year with a better mark than last
season, when they won an even 100
games. This profound thought
brought the meeting of the Filberts
to a close, and they all went back
quietly with their keepers.

Laabs Ends Hitting
Spree With Hopes
For Another Soon
ST. LOUIS, July 30-(A)-The hot-
test slugging streak in baseball this
year apparently has endedbut Ches-
ter Peter Laabs confidently expects
to break out in another orgy of home
runs any day now.
For a sensational string of eight
games, the Browns' outfielder hit
seven homers, drove in 24 tallies and
batted .552. Since then he has hit
two more, giving him, a total of 19,
second only to Ted Williams in the
"Nobody could keep up the kind of
pace he was setting," said Manager
Luke Sewell today, "but he's meeting
the ball squarely and he might break
out in another streak any time."
However, the fickle home fans have
been yelling "home run" whenever
Chet steps up to the plate, and, a,
single has been sort of a letdown.
Laabs has credited his batting
prowess to a new. open stance at the
plate. He always has been a long-
ball hitter but last year he cracked
out only 15 home runs all season.
