He has been of little help this year, iirui unless there is u sudden, miraculous hot rush of hf.'ilth into his iinn, lie won't IK- uf much use iiguinst tlie Yanks. Thus, after Hubbell is done with the first )iaine, Terry will have to entrust the pitching to Cliff Mutton, u young C-foot-5 ([iiint of ;> rookies lefthander. who lias been nothing short of a sensation this season; Harry Gumbert. a brush young mini who is somewhat iintlcpenduble; Al Smith n flullery southpaw; Dick Coffmun, who wasn't JJIXM! I'lioimh to pitch for the Browns; Don Brennan, freeil by the Keds; and Tom linker. :\ boy. Melton Seeks HeveiiKC Along With Glory Rookie Melton, best of the new soutlipaw pitchers, will pitch the soc! ond tfiiinf. 1 of the .series and, if necessary, the fifth. He has shared the bulk of the Giant pitching with Hubbell this season both as a successful starter and a name reliever. The husky former North Carolina grocery boy will be seeking revenge along with glory. He was up with the Yankees a year ago. you see, and they treated him with great disdain and shooed him hack to the minors. . . . "Not good enough for the big leagues," they said. "He's got a million-dollar arm, but only 10-cent control." Ami, so, Mr. Melton, who camo up to the big leagues with such high hopes, suddenly found himself back in Baltimore, of all places, for another year. And if you've ever been in Baltimore you'll know that's enough to make n man hate with a great heartiness. But hate, desire for revenge, and pitching ability may not be enough to bring him victory. Working against the; brilliant young southpaw is the t world scries bugaboo over first-year men. Faul Derringer, an IK- game winner as a freshman for the Cardinals in 1931, was a miserable flop against the Athletics that fall. . . . Lonnic Warneke, who won 'i'i in his first full season with the Cubs in 1932, was knocked out in Ins only start in the .series that year. . . . And Schoolboy Rowe, who won 24 in his first complete campaign with the Tigers in '34 was considerably less than sensationa in the series with the Cards. Can the 21-year-old Melton fi/.'ht ofl this bugaboo? Southpaws Effective Against Yanks Usually Bill Terry thinks he can. Southpaws have given the Yankees more trouble than righthanders this season and Bill thinks that Hubbell and Melton are as good as any two left-hand- ers you can spot around the country side these days. He expects them t< account for three victories. That leaves it up to Gumbert. Schumacher, Coffman, Brennan and Baker to turn in the other. Gumbert has a nettor-than-normal amount of ability and he might possibly fise to the occasion, but lie is young and more than likely will get flustralc'd, as King Levinsky would say, in the fare of the Hupporl Rifles' fire. Smith is a good journeyman left- hander, but the Yanks slaughtered him lust year. Brennan, Coffman and Baker might be good enough to gel one man oul apiece. So il looks as though Hubbell and Mellon, conceding they can bag three games, will have to get together on that fourth if th<; Giants are going to gel their revenge. As for catching, the Yanks will have the edge there. Gus Mancuso has .slipped .somewhat . . . he's older, more brittle . . . but he should be able to weather a seven-fame, or less, series.

Joe McCarthy Is the Only Man to Win Pennants in Both of Major Leagues He Never Bawls Out a Player Before Other Members of the Team—But Takes Him Aside and Talks Privately By KICHARD McCANN NKA Service Sports Writer NEW YORK.— Joe McCarthy likes fried chicken black cigars, detective stories, magicians, a pint of ice cream in bed at night, and victory. The boss man of the Yankees is the only man ever to manage pennant- winning teams in both major leagues. Ami he's one of the few ever to get Into college without going through the formality of a high school course. Joe got as far as the eighth grade back home in the Gcrmantown, Pu., parochial school, worked on an ice wagon, dug some ditches for the next couple of years, and then suddenly turned up at Nigara University. . . . "1 don't know how il happened," says Joe, "bul there 1 was in college." Al the university, Joe was an apt pupil of penmanship, clockwinding, and the ukulele. He had no trouble at all winning his varsity degree at second base. Music and Stage Arc Joe's Hobbles Joe will be 50, come next April 21, but doesn't look it. He's Irish on both sides of the family and most certainly does look it. He has black hair, flashing brown eyes, u mouth thai can be both kind and harsh, and jutting 3«w. His hobbies arc music, Ihe theater, movies, ice skating, and vnudeville. He and Ihe missus go skating every morning while wintering al their home in Buffalo. He knows Ihe names and routine of most of the vaudeville boys and girls. He has a good tenor voice and likes to sing informally. His be.sl friend is George M. Cohan, of whom you may liave heard. George, by the way, committed heresy in taking up with McCarthy. YOU see, for 25 years or more, George had been the Giants' NO. 1 fan. But when McGraw went and McCarthy camo Cohan crossed the crick from the Polo Grounds to the Yankee Stadium.

Bul he can't hit with Bill Dickey of the Yanks. The Messrs. Hubbell and Melton, however, promise to do their share in seting that Mr. Dickey and the other Yunk.s don't do Mich a terrific amount of bitting. rtw Kqlise ferns thrive better in partial shade. among the fans." Wise, and well-said. . . . He's Great Worrier; Sleeps With Game He has an uncanny ability to size up men and figure out how's best to handle each one man must be treated roughly, one must be given sympathy, one must be laughed al- and one must be fired. He never b«,wls a player oul in public. He prefers to wait until the next day al noon when Ihe players begin to gather al the park and talk to him privately. Tempers have cooled then and you won't be so liable to blurt out things you'll regret later on. He's a great worrier. He likes victory by huge margins. A lead is never too big. Perhaps he is still living that horrible inning when, as manager of the Chicago Cubs, -sc saw the Philadelphia Athletics score 10 runs in the seventh inning of Ihe last game of Ihe 1929 world series to win 10-8. Joe takes the ball game home lo bed with him at night. After a bad game, he doesn't go to sleep until dawn peeps. Some of his important decisions are made at 4 and 5 a. m. He's a great one for playing bunches, is cordial bul rather close-mouthed to newspapermen, doesn't like the spotlight, has saved his money until he's rated the wealthiest manager—aside from Connie Mack, in the game. And unquestionably, he's the most unappreciated manager in baseball. hold nine tennis while serving. fly FELIX R. M'KmGIIT FORT WORTH, Texns.-(/P)-Husky /tie Greenberg, younger brother of the illustrious Hank, cracked a tenth-inning single Monday night with the xises packed lo give Fort Worth's Panthers n 3-2 triumph over Little ^ock and a threc-to-one edge in the Dixie series. Subjected to a ball players' most stinging embarrassment—hitting be- lind a mate who had been intentionally walked to get lo easier pickings Greenberg looked over Pitcher Byron Humphreys first toss and then drove a liner to center. Southpaw Clyde Smoll mixed four- lit twirling with streaks of wildness to down a stubborn Traveler team that had muffed its tenth-inning chance when Leo Nonnenkamp wac caught off second base with only one away. Humphreys, the Travelers' ace chunker, pitched fine ball himself until the hist frame. He let Bill Jackson, Fort Worth catcher, open with a clean single and saw him advance safely to second when he beat First Sacker O'Neal's throw on Pitcher Smell's sacrifice bunt. Shelley forced Jackson at third and Humphreys tossed oul McDowell. Then came Stebbin's intentional walk and Greenberg's winning hit. Smoll, in hot water more than once, struck out nine Travelers but issued five passes that figured in the Little .Rock scoring. Rabbit McDowell got a lift on Griffiths' error to start the Cat's fourth frame. He moved along on Stebbins sacrifice and scored on Moore's two- "Skavoni over the left side again , weakenlrff," I still think that guard's baser into deep left. Little Rock knotted things in the fifth when Niemeic reached first on Smell's throw into the dirt, stole second and went to third on Catcher Jackson's wild heave. Griffiths hit a long foul that Greenberg caught. Niemiec scoring after the catch. Nonnenkamp and Tabor walked in the Traveler sixth and Tauby singled Nonnenkamp across. Three successive singles by Mallon, McLeod and Jackson produced Fort Worth's tying run in the seventh. In the tenth Nonnenkamp beat out a bunt and stole second but Smoll threw to McDowell and trapped him off second.

No cash was involved. The Yankee boss played his first game of baseball 3li years ago when he was 14. The site was a section of the historic Revolutionary Wur battlefield al Germantown. He played with seven minor league teams. In the winter of 1»15 he signed with Brooklyns of thu Federal League but the outlaw loop blew up. That was the closest McCarthy got to playing in hte big leagues. He just couldn't hit hard enough, nor field well enough, although he tried himself al second, third, short, and in the outfield. But his shrewdness and managerial talents were recognized early and as long ago as 1913 he was manager as well «s second baseman of the Wilkes- Biirre team in the New York State League. McCarthy is no Prussian officer type of manager but lie does expect his players to take orders and keep in shape. You can have a drink, or two, or three," says McCarthy, "but don't ever let your conduct off the field be u mailer of interest to me or concern to the bull club, or discussion Koine Cream anil Sugar STATE COLLEGE, Miss. — Four o'clock may !«-' lea-lime in Merrie England, but it's oatmeal lime for Mississippi Stale gridders.
