HOPE STAR, BO?E. ARKANSAS THE SPO] By RICHARD McCANN NEA. Service Sports Writer W YORK.-Mr. Will Terry, who has just won his third pennant in five -*years of major league managing, is » probably the most mysterious man it'll *fever be your displeasure to meet There's is no denying the man's good qualities . . . he's a churchman—used Ho sing baritone in a choir; a clean liver—no one has ever seen him over- Indulge in liquor; a fine, faithful hus- ? t>and; a strict, but loving parent; one of the greatest players that ever lived; '"and a splendid leader. On the other hand, he's a surly, self' ' fih, money-grapsing fellow. He's as 'jSolite as a bill collector, as rude as a sheriff evicting you from the old 'homestead, and as considerate as a • stampeding buffalo herd. Nobody has yet been able to quite •figure out the guy. Perhaps the explanation can be found in the fact that he started out in life "as a southpaw pitcher. , The only book Terry reads is his '•Bank book. Baseball, he freely admits, is a business, not a game with him. "''The baseball writers, who hate him Kiartily, admire him for this frankness. After all, the average ball play- fer is just as interested in the cash involved but pretends to be an it-doesn't- matter- whether-you-won-or-lost-but- how-you-played-the-game fellow. Terry's slogan, frankly, is: It doesn't matter whether you won or lost—but f did you get paid? They say that as son as the last Giant was retired in last year's series , debacle with the Yanks Terry rushed ^to the clubhouse calling to Coach Frank Snyder. . . . "Say, Frank, how much did you say the loser's share was?" 'As a player, he was an annual holdout. As a manager, he's with his players in their salary arguments. He is always trying to get them more money. Only this summer he told Dick ; Bartell not to talk on Babe Ruth's i radio hour because the 5100 fee wasn't enough. Cold and Heartless That's what Bill always thinks of i . . is it enough? Not so .long ago he promised to attend a boy scout meeting but didn't show up because he , fieard that there was no money on hand for him. l v .He is cold and heartless in his baseball dealings. One of his first moves "when he became manager was to trade hik roommate, Freddie Lu<istrom, "probably because Freddie had wanted John McGraw's job, too. And just this season he shipped Freddie Fitzsimmons out of the world series money, ' sending him to Brooklyn. 'His best friend—and, perhaps, only friend—is Travis Jackson. They played together down in Little Rock in the old days. ... "I want Travis to suc- beed me when I tsep down," says Bill. Terry, despite his great repuation "for being a manager, is not a developer 'of players. Clyde Castleman is the inly player who has grown up under him . . . the rest were re-planted by cash or trade. 'He doesn't believe in deep strategy on the field, but rather in the spur- bf-the-moment hunches. He wastes little time in changing hurlers. And he won't stand for players who don't keep in condition. Unlike McGraw who tried to remorm bad boys, Terry gets rid of them. Terry Is Wealthy Terry has been married for 21 years, has one daughter, and three sons. One of the boys, Bill, Jr. is a law student at the University of Virginia, 6 feet 5 inches tall, and plays baseball tolerably well. Mrs. Terry seldom goes to the ball park and his daughter has seen only a few world Travelers Take Dixie Series Opener, Score Is 101 . •*• • -^ ' *•£ , . . • f !;; New York Yankee's Outfield OAK LOGS d We are in the market for a round lot of Forked Leat White Oak, Cow Oak, Overcut, Burr Oak, tma tvitf Oak Logs.

Jett William* & Myril Hoag Jake Powell George 'Selkirk Tom Hcnrirli Yankees Depend on Subs and Cripples as Their Outfielders in World Series Joe DiMaggio, Selkirk and Henrich Are Expected to Receive Starting Assignments in World's Series New York Giants Clinch Pennant Carl Hubbell Pitches 5-Hit Ball to Beat Phillies, 2tol PHILADELPHIA. — (/I') — The New Giants clinched the National League pennant Thursday. They won it by taking the opening game of a doubleheader from the Phillies, 2 to 1. Carl Hubbell pitched a five-hit game and had a shutout until Dolph Camilli tagged him for a homer with two out in the ninth. In the second game, fielding a makeshift team, the Giants were beaten, 6 to 2. The opening victory was their 93rd of the year; the closing defeat their 56th. They have three games still to play. Perhaps the most deciding factor in the championship conquest was the master-minding of Bill Terry. The surly strategist wasn't on hand for the proceedings—influenza confining him to his rooms in New York—but his directing guidance, even to selecting Hubbell to pitch the pennant winner, has played the most important part in the New Yorkers' conquest. When Lou Chtozzn failed to fill in third base Terry pulled Mel Ott, an all-round outfild star, into the infield. Ott has become the best hot-corner perfomer in the league. • In the last Chicago series, Terry realized another left-handed batter would help the attack considcrablq, and that the outfield .could stand lots more speed. So he shifted Chiozza to the fly-chasing brigade and it now looks as though the ex-Phillies player will get lots of work in the World Series. After Rookie Johnny McCarthy failed at first base early in the season because of his weak hitting, Terry still retained confidence in the youngster, worked on his swing. Finally he recalled him from bench exile, and McCarthy now is a mainstay on the attack; has boosted his average 30 points in the last month.

This is the third and final article analyzing the New York Yankees, American League champions, and outlining their plans and prospects for the forthcoming world series, starting October 6. By RICARD McCANN NEA Service Sports Writer NEW YORK.—The Yankees won the pennant the hard way this time. They beat Joe Jinx. Usually, you know, a team that leads series games. Terry doesn't like them to be photographed. Bill, who worked in a filling station and played ball on Sundays for ?25 a week not so very long ago, now owns a good share of Standard Oil Co. stock, and is some sort of an execulive with the organization in Memphis. He has a $100,000 mansion in Memphis, gets -something like $25,000 from the oil people, and just signed a new five- year contract at S40.00U per with the Giants. He never goes to the movies, can't play bridge, hates poker because it may cost him money, is a poor conversationalist, grunts his helloes most of the time, smiles about as pleasantly as a racketeer on the .spot, or the gunman who is putting the racketeer on the spot. In short, it would be hell being marooned on a desert island with him. But in all fairness, it must be reported that if anybody could get you off that island Mr. Terry could Without it c-nstiiif; yon—or him— any money. the parade owes much of its success to the fact its star players escaped injuries. Take the Tigers of '34 and '35 . . . [ there was hardly an ingrown toenail I on the squad during those tv/o seasons ] and the boys, disgustingly healthy, won the pennant both years. But then' came '36 ... Greenberg broke his wrist, Cochrane broke his heart, and the team broke clown. Now the Yanks this year haven't lost such two mighty men for the length of time that the Tigers lost Greenberg and Cochrane, but they have been deprived from time to time! of the valuable services of Bill Dickey,! Tony Lazzeri, Monte Pearson, George Selkirk, and Tom Henrcih. Dickey wasn't out for long; Laz/.eri's absence was not felt so badly with Don Heffner. a better fielder, filling in; and Pearson's loss was somewhat equalized by the unexpectedly brilliant return of Lefty Gomez. Outfield Replacement!) Weak at the Plate But the loss nl Selkirk and Henrich . , . well, just look at the ret-wila: The outfield of Joe DiMaggio, Selkirk, and Henrich h;js a composite batting average of .343 for the time it, has played together this .season. Where-1 as, the outfit-Id of Powell. Houg, and | DiMaggio has a mere ..'105 composite j average. j Ut course, the Yankees, at that have been fortunate to have such capable reserves as Hoag and Powell, but try as they will the Steady Myril and sometimes sensational Jake can't quite i come up to Henrich and Selkirk, as. you can see by the above statistics. Yankee medicine men have worked frequently over the two ailing outfielders, trying to get them ready for the series. But even if both are able to play they hardly can be themselves after rusting on the bench. However, Manager Juu McCarthy would rather have a bad Selkirk and Henrich than a good Powell and Hoag. Especially would he like to have Selkirk ih the lineup. Joe can't for- yet those eight hits including tv/o home runs, that George bashed out last fall against the Giants. Selkirk Started Strong This Year Nor can no forget the way George started out this season. Until he dove after a dipping liner, skidded on his shoulder and ripped a muscle from its moorings, Selkirk looked liku ho might do more than fill Babe Kutli's right field spot and "No. 'J ' shirt. It looked as though he might fill the Babe's role of home run leader. You see. when he svas hurt July 1 in Philadelphia he had 17 homers to his credit and wa.s giving the rest of the boys a merry fight for league leadership. Selkirk, us well a.s Henrich. h;is made infrequent appearances, in the Ytirik lineup in the last few weeks, testing out his shoulder and elbow (lie hurt the elbow when he tried to throw \vJth an unnatural sitluarm motion after the shoulder injury), but he hasn't hud enough work to whip himself inlo good condition. However, don't waste too many tears 011 Manager McCarthy's outfield problem. You know ho still has Joe Ui- M;iggiu and a lot of managers would be willing to spot the other side two extra fielders and settle for DiMag. Jon hu.s hud a great year—lots of i uns-butted-m, ami homers, and othi.-r extra-base hits. He .slowed clown his terrific puce in the lust few weeks of the campaign and sonic of the boys blamed it on his movie work. The kleig glare hurt his eyes, they say. Which may bt so. After all, bright lights may affect a guy who can hit, like Joe, in tlic dark. footbal Games College Arkansas Tech vs. Pittsburgh (Kan.) Teachers at Russellville (nighti.
