The management of the Williams team, Pete Brown, had asked for the removal of Cornelius in the balance of the games in which the Williams team is to participate—threatening to quit the league unless he was removed. The Williams team, however, will continue in the league. The decision to continue came approximately 45 minutes after the Softball Commissioners announced that Cornelius would be retained. At that time a representative of the Williams team posted an additional SI forfeit fee and announced that "we're still! in the league." Commissioners' Killing Here is what .'miners decided daj afternoon: 1. That Umpire Cornelius would continue to officate in all league games —but during the games in which Williams is to play—to work on the buses instead of behind the plate. 2. That teams playing the second game at night will be given only fiv« minutes apiece to warm-up, the second game to begin within 10 minutes after the first contest is over 3 The Commissioners heard the refusal of Uij:;.lie Cornelius to officiate in any of the play-off games which will fulli.w thr close of the regular league schedule 4 The Commissioners then decided to employe two how umpires to handle the series games. Just who they will be, the Commissioners did not announce. Southern Cafe Quits- Iky PritchcH, manager of the Southern Cafe teuin. informed The Star Wednesday that he was withdrawing Jns team from the league because several members were unable to continue, due to sickness, lateness of-the season and business requirements which did not give them an opportunity to continue. Withdrawal of the Southern Cafe team will leave three teams, Geo. W. Robison, Hope Basket compay and the Highway Department battling for a place in the Shaughnessy play-off series. Softball managers are urged to notice the balance of the league schedule which appears in the standings of today's paper. The season will end next Wednesday night.

L'lD On GAMBLING THREATENS FAMOUS SPORTS SCENIC By HARRY GRAYSON NBA Sedvice Stuff Correspondent SARATOGA SPRINGS—Can America's greatest sports scene—Old Saratoga in August—survive without wide- open gambling to draw patrons to the Spa? Saratoga Springs, the one-month town, is shut up tighter than Philadelphia on Sunday, and the natives and racing people ponder the result. "Taing gambling out of Saratoga is like removing the elevators from the Empire State Building," says the pes r | simistic faction. 'Shuting down on gambling has kept nobody out of Saratoga except undesirables," assets the purity group. But many declare that the old Saratoga saying, "I'll pay you in August," won't hold good this year. Meanwhile, dealers, croupiers, stickmen, casekeepers, and gambling room hangers-on stand along Broadway's elm-lined curbs moaning low. Gambling Speeded Up Night Life at Saratoga And they are not alone in saying, 'Saratoga ain't Saratoga no more." This is a decided off year for the outlying clubs, which are finishing the season with skelton crews. Without Rock, Reilly's, Newman's Meadowbrook, and other hot spots can't afford | orchestras like that of Vincent Lo-! poy. and entertainers who command' the motion picture retainers of the Yacht Club Boys and Jimmy Durante. But George H. Bull, president of the Saratoga Association, looks prosperous enough, and says that track attendance is off only a negligible 2 per cent. There were something like 18,000 persons on hand for lite running of the historic Travers Bull professes no alarm over the gambling lid Enforcement of the law is a break for the bookmakers. "It used to be," explains the veteran Tim Mara, "that when a player had a bad day at hie track he'd attempt to get himself well in gaming rooms at night. Now he tries to get even at the track the following day." Horse Puts Everybody on Cuminon IA:W\ at Spa The population of 'Saratoga Springs, a sleepy Adirondacks village 11 months of the year, jumps from 13,000 to (15,000 in late July and early August. Society folk check in from Southampton, Newport, the Berkshire Hills, Narragansett, Bar Harbor, and far away Coronado. Society, turf, and the gambling element gave the Spa a curious mixture, with the horse putting everyone on a common level. The more violent dissenters against the gambling shut-down to date have been the taxicab drivers. They paraded with placards on Me cars reading, "We want action this summer; not relief this winter." Police broke up the procession, and each driver was fined ?5. No gambling means fewer fares to night clubs. Medicinal a* Well as Social and Truf Center More conservative residents of Saratoga Springs point to the state's $10,000,000 investment in seven monumental buildings around its famous healing springs. They contend the resort will continue to prosper on a sounder basis. No one is exactly certain as to what put the lid on America's Mionte Carlo, The popular belieff is that the crackdown was due to a break between James A. Leary, veteran leader of Saratoga county's degular Republicans, and round-faced young Alfred L Simon, who beat Leary's candidate for district attorney Some trace the action to Dewey in New York, others to the fact tha Dr Arhur J.

But all of Saratoga's gaming rooms are unlikely to become civic meeting places and museums as has the Canfield mansion, where gaming was made an art and a ceremony. There have ben Saratoga gambling cru.'.ades before and the games-always have come hack. Saratoga Springs has been a place apart since before the Civil War. Pirates Win First Game From Giants Pittsburgh Increases League Leadership to Six and Half Games PITTSBURGH. - (/Pi — The Pirates, behind Right-Hander Jim Tobin's eighth five-hit pitching job of the year, rode rough shod over the crippled New York Giants Tuesday, battering their way to a 7-1 triumph that increased their margin over tlie Terry- men to six and a half games. Gus Suhr., who has been benched several times this season for failing to hit. provided the main punch. He had a perfect day at bat with a walk, a single, double and triple, and drove in five runs with his two extra-base clouts. ~Dick Coffman, making his first start for the Giants since October 2, 1937 bore the brunt of the Pittsburgh assault. He gave up eight of the their thirteen hits and six of their runs before retiring in favor of a pinch-hitter in the seventh. The Giants were first to score, Joe Moore gretting Tobin with a two- bagger to right and scoring all the way from second on a wild pitch, but the Buccaneers put the game on ice before the inning was over. With one out, Lloytl Waner singled and Arky Vaughan and Johnny Rizzo drew passes to fill the bases. Suhr cleared them a moment later with 9 rousing tliree-bagger off the right George H. Bull, president of Saratoga Racing Association, appears prosperous enough de« gambjJag him at the S»a. field screen. Waner also started each of the two other Pittsburgh scoring innings. In the sixth he led off with a single. Coffman retired the next two batters, but then Rizzo singled, Suhr doubled, again off the screen, and Ftp Young singled in quick succession for three more tallies and a 6-1 lead.
