Red Sox Win From Yankees 7-6 •» Bombers Out of Top for 1st Time in Race By RALPH RODEN Associated Press Sports Writer The,possibility was strong Tuesday that the nation's railroads— and not New York's famed subway- system—will transport the participants in the 1949 World Series. The right of way between Boston and St. Louis is the expected route of the series personnel instead of the hour ride via the underground from Ebbets Field to the Yankee Stadium. New Yorkers' hopes of a "subway" World Series suffered another rude jolt Monday when the torrid Boston Red Sox defeated the New York Yankees 7-6 to snap their first place tie and move a game in front of the floundering Yanks in the American league race. The dreams of a dime classic were jarred Sunday when the St. Louis Cardinals moved a game and Probable Pitchers AMERICAN LEAGUE Philadelphia (Fowler H-10) at New Tork (Raschi 19-10).

(Only games scheduled.) a half in front of the Brooklyn Dodgers by downing Chicago while Brooklyn succumbed to Philadelphia. Both the Red Sox and the Cards renew their pennant drives on foreign fields Tuesday while the Yanks are at home and the Dodgers idle. The Red Sox are riding a 10 game winning streak, t Both the Red Sox and Yanks have 5 games left to play. The 2 contenders wind up the season in the stadium with single games Saturday and Sunday following their 3 game series against Washington and Philadelphia. 13 Straight Over Nats The Red Sox outlook is brighter than the'Yanks. The spirited men of McCarthy have beaten the Senators 13 straight times. The Yanks have won 12 out of 19 engagements with the A's. St. Louis will have its work cut out beating Ralph Kiner and company. The Pirates, despite their lowly perch, have split 20 games with the Redbirds. A disputed squeeze play, that climaxed a 4 run 8th inning rally gave the Red Sox their triumph over the Yanks before 66,156 paid onlookers. • Pesky Scores on Squeeze Bobby Doerr bunted Johnny Pesky across with the big run. Doerr dropped the ball down the first base line. Tommy Henrich's throw had Pesky beat but Umpire Bill Grieve called Pesky safe. He said later the Red Sox runner slid around Grieve like a bunch of hornets, claiming that Houk had blocked off Pesky. Houk, a major in the Rangers during the war, was the most enraged of the Yanks. Ellis Kinder, who shut out the Yanks in Boston Saturday, blanked the New Yorkers in the last 2 rounds but an amazing catch by Zarilla saved the game in the 9th. With one down in the home 9th Henrich whaled a drive to right. Zarilla sprinted to his right, leaped while in full stride, caught the drive, tumbled to the ground but held on to the ball. Kinder then walked Yogi Berra but Hank Bauer flied out to end the game. The Red Sox opened the game by scoring 3 runs in the first inning against Tommy Byrne and Fred Sanford. Young Mickey McDermott held the lead until the 4th when the Yanks moved ahead with a 4 run rally. McDermott almost received his walking papers in the 2nd but Zarilla cafcie up with a tremendous catch against the right field stands to rob Johnny Lindell of a 3 run homer.

Cliff Mopes, 3/7/ Grieve n Squabble By JACK HAND New York, (/P)—Outfielder Cliff Vtapes Tuesday found himself the niddle man in a boiling contro- ersy between Umpire Bill Grieve and the New York Yankees over he squeeze play decision by which Boston took over the Amer- can league lead. After Umpire Grieve called Johnny Pesky safe at home on Bobby Doerr's squeeze bunt in the 5th inning of Monday's game, Vlapes, a non-combatant, yelled: "How much did you have bet on the game?" Grieve said the Yank flychaser repeated the remark in a runway under the stands after the ball game, the score of which was 7-6. "There's never been an umpire found guilty of anything like some ball players—like throwing a game," Grieve commented. In the cool of the evening, Grieve said he still intended to report the incident to President Will Harridge of the American league. "I'll explain the Mapes incident," he said, "and also tell how I was pushed by Houk (Yankee Catcher Ralph Houk) and the manager (Casey Stengel). I kept Houk in there because he was their only catcher but any other day, you know, both would have been out. "The runner slid under Houk and that's all there is to it. Sure, I could have made the easy call, giving it to the home club; but in my NORTHEAST IOWA Dccorah 2 ' 0 Waverly 2 0 Oelwein 2 0 Charles City 1 1 New Hampton ... 1 1 Cedar Falls 1 2 Osage 0 2 Cresco 0 3 NORTH CENTRAL Clear Lake 1 0 Hampton 1 0 Humboldt 1 0 Webster City 1 0 Algona 1 1 Eagle Grove 0 1 Clarion 0 1 Iowa Falls 0 2 NORTH IOWA Northwood Buffalo Center Forest City . ..

Taking the Big Six conference first, Fort Dodge will be at West Waterloo. . . . The Dodgers have won 3 games without a setback this sea- retain son and will be out to their conference crown. Fort Dodge has 5 loop contests and wouldn't be out of the running even with a defeat. . . . The Wa- hawks, however, have only 4 loop contests for the season and need a win if they hope to gain the loop laurels. West has never won a conference title outright in the 9-year history of the loop but shared the 1947 crown. . . . Fort Dodge has won 2 and shared in another. In the Northeast Iowa conference the spotlight will be on Decorah where the unbeaten Vikings are host to the defending champion Waverly Gohawks. . . . Coach Mart Brandes' teams have always been a jinx to the Vikings and Decorah is hoping to break Gene Porter of Humboldt, listed as Quarterbacks; Harry Kiliper of Fort Dodge, Dick Cherpinsky of Sioux City and Sammy Long of Ottumwa, halves; and Emery Eichorn of Marshalltown and Bob Slinker of Des Moines, fullbacks. That's an imposing array of freshmen and they might be the touch to elevate the Cyclones in Big Seven competition in the next few seasons. . * Smallest Prep Squad Cove, Ore., has placed officia claim as the smallest high schoo in the country fielding a footbal team. . . .

VerHelst fanned the first 15 batters to face him in the game. He walked the 16th batter to open the 6th frame. The only hit off him was a double by Catcher Rusley in the 7th frame with 2 batters retired, thus wrecking a perfect performance. VerHelst had 18 strikeouts in the game. Bob Calgaard hurled for .the losers and allowed 3 hits while posting 13 strikeouts. Calson's walk and Tommy Nangle's single in the 6th gave St. Joe its first run and the winners added 3 more when they batted the spell. Just for a recap on under Houk.

Pictures show plainly that Henrich's throw beat Pesky to the plate. Whether or not the tag was made before he slid over with the run, is open to discussion. Whether Mapes will be disciplined by league headquarters is ior Harridge to determine. Harridge said he planned to issue a formal statement. Watson, Johnson Top Nominees for Athletic Board Boone, (/P) — In a situation without precedent in the history of the organization, Supt. W. F. Johnson of Spencer was nominated simultaneously for 2 different terms on the Iowa High School Athletic Association board of control Sunday.' IHSAA. Secretary Lyle Quinn, in announcing results of the nomination balloting Monday, said it is conceivable that Johnson might be elected to both posts. Member schools were sent blank ballots on which to nominate men for a 5-year term and a 4-year term on the board. The election committee, headed by Supt. Carl McCalley of Palo, counted 456 ballots and found nominations to be as follows: Five year term: Supt. R. R. Watson, Sheffield, 174 votes; Johnson, the clubs so far, Waverly has outscored 3 opponents 101-6 this season while the Vikings hold a 53-13 edge over the opposition. The headliner in the North Central conference Hampton's invasion of Webster City. . . '. Coach Ken Cheeley's Bulldogs have a potent air arm and have taken 2 wins while the Lynx, after taking a drubbing from Knoxville, came back to tie Boone and last week plastered Algona with its first setback of the season. Over at Belrnond the Broncos will try to recover from their setback at Northwood when they play host to the undefeated Buffalo Center Bison. . . . The invaders have yielded only 7 points in winning 3 games and need a win to keep pace with Northwood in the North Iowa conference. . . . Belmond could get back into the picture with a victory.

Chicago, (U.R)—The Chicago Cardinals, firmly installed as favor- tes to win again the western division title, in the National football league, laid claim Tuesday to :he most explosive backfield in the .eague. The quartet hailed by Card fans in the wake of their 38-7 rout of th-s once-mighty Washington Redskins Monday night were Charley Trippi, Pat Harder, Paul Christman and Elmer Angsmann. And the greatest cheers went up for Trippi. In 10 tries at lugging the leather, Trippi gained 129 yards—an average of 12.9 yards. He scored one touchdown on the receiving end of a pass from Christman and racked up another on a 3-yard blast through the line. The former Georgia star ran 13 yards to set up 1 touchdown by Harder and again ran 55 yards to set the stage for another Harder thrust. Christman hit on 8 of 15 passes for 117 yards. Harder had a total of 20 points on 2 touchdowns, a field goal, arid 5 extra points. And Angsmann was in there slamming away at the Redskins' line. The Redskins offered only Sammy Baugh in return. The veteran pass master clicked on 16 passes in 28 tries and 1 touchdown, but is wasn't enough. Monday night's win set the stage for the Cards' game Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

Under IHSAA bylaws, Johnson will appear as the nominee on both ballots. Quinn said that if Johnson is elected to both posts he probably would have to resign from one of them and another election would be called to fill the vacancy.

Coach Henry "Red" Sanders told a football writers' meeting here Monday that he made no use of information on Iowa plays given him by a former Hawkeye player. "I consider the whole thing a joke," he asserted, "and the way we played in the first half proved it." Iowa fans had said that Sanders received telephone calls from Jim Lawrence, a former Iowa player. UCLA won the game 41-25. None of the information did him any good, Sanders said. In reply to a question if any of the calls had been collect calls, Sanders said: "One was collect. I make it a policy always of accepting collect calls. I got one of the best football players I've ever had that way." Nora Springs Has Organized Downtown Quarterback Club Nora Springs — The Sideliners, a "downtown quarterback club." was organized Tuesday evening at a meeting at the school. Lloyd G. Andersen was named president of the group, which will meet again next Tuesday evening in the Legion club rooms, with a program being planned. All men interested in football and the Orioles are invited to attend next Tues- Both Coach Art Assistant Coach Tom Chandler gave brief talks; the Oriole uniforms were exhibited; movies were shown, and re- defeat this season has been to New Hampton and the Brownies had to play without their ace fullback. . . . Nashua could be the team to beat for the Corn Bowl title but the Orioles should provide a good test. Beaten But Promising How about a team getting beat 16 points (UCLA 41, Iowa 25) and still having a big following of supporters with rosy expectations? . . . Well, that seems to be the case with the Iowa Hawkeyes. . . . You have to rub your head to remember when Iowa had as much offensive power. . . .Even the great 1939 team with Kinnick passing and Buzz Dean, Ray Murphy, Red McClain and Bill Green doing the running didn't have what the present Hawks appear to have. Bill Reichardt, Don Riley, Duane Brandt, Don Commack and Don Woodhouse are mighty fine soph backs. . . , Reichardt in particular looks like the best runner since Bill Green of the '39 and '40 clubs. . . . And there are such older hands as Jerry Faske, Don Fryauf, Bill Greene (1949) and Rip Naber who can't be counted out of the picture. . . . Glenn Drahn will do okay at quarterback, especially with a little more experience. The Iowa line is -sound enough on defense even if it didn't do well in rushing UCLA passers. . . . We look for the Hawks to win ball games this year and in another year they might get a look-in among the rated teams in the Big Ten. . . .

Final Stag Party at Country Club to Be Guest Day The final stag party of the season will be held Wednesday at the Mason City Country club. It will be guest day and there will be no greens fees charge for guests of club members. The dinner in the evening will cost $1. Following the dinner a film will be shown. It is a football movie with the highlights of the 1948 season of games played by the Green Bay Packers. Prizes also will be distributed for the Country club tournament and for the regular season team matches which were conducted last week. HUNTERS! 6 shots in 3 ! /2 Seconds! That's the Record of This 12 Gauge Model 20 Pump Repeating for this week, playing Purdue away from home. . . . The Boilermakers gave the Hawks a hard physical beating a year ago in winning 20-13 and they'll be tough at Lafayette. . . . What's more, they'll have their ace ball carrier, Harry Szulborski, in the lineup. . . . He wasn't in action in last week's Northwestern game. * 3 Strong Majors? It looks as though the state of Iowa may have 3 pretty lair football teams in the major class this season . . . Iowa's Hawks should get some wins, Iowa State is due for a big upswing after gaining a tie with Illinois and Drake appears to be plenty tough The Iowa State game against the- Bulldogs in Des Moines on Nov. 5 might be a real headliner. . . . Salute of the week should go to Coach Abe Stuber and his Iowa Cyclones for the good work against the Illini. . . . The Cyclones have had numerous bad breaks in the past couple of seasons which have cost them ball games. . . . Maybe those breaks will go the other way this fall. Iowa State didn't have too good a field of sophs to go with the old hands this fall but in another year there should be some help. ...
