It was Gabby Street, grizzled manager of tho victorious St. LoulH Cardinals, epcaklng. Street, now 4!) years «ild, had won his first world's championship after a quarter of a century in the game, and he was eo happy that he was on tho verge of tears. Street rushed Into the Cardinals' dressing room to congratulate his players, but before he could complete the round of handshaking he was rushed to the microphone. "Hello, Sally Lou and Sonny Hoy, down there In Joplln." he suld. "Dabby kept Ills promise and Is bringing the world'* championship to you tomorrow morning." That message won for his little 4-yenr-old daughter and his 7-year- old sou. Olmrle« R. Street Jr. Thru fho Cardinal manager turned to newspaper men: "I am tlie hnppleet man In the world," he began. "This IB tho creut- est day of my life. I've always wished 1 cotih! manage a world's championship ball club, but I didn't think 1 could do It at my age. "Pitching was the turning point. We lind the better equipped pilch- ing staff, aud we beat a great ball club. "With the exception of the sixth game, my team he<ids-up baseball.

"The best pitched gamcn ware turned In by Grimrs nnd K.-inishaw. Grimes was tho outstanding pltchnr, In my mind, because of hla ability to come back after being hurt In the first game. Hallithau Ditched two marvelous victories. "Pepper Mart in, of course, was I he ouUstandlng fielder. Ills work waa the Inspiration that carried u.s through. All the Infleldcrs played great ball, and I'm particularly proud of Andy High, who filled In for Adams at third. "Tho umpiring was good and had In spots. Bill Klein, however, worked perfectly In every game. He's the beet umpire In tho major leagues. "So long, boys, nnd thanks."
