At left is Chet BACK IN THE 1920s Henry Ford produced a mechanical masterpiece, the Model T, that captured the imaginations of the country. Although the car tended to produce a character of its own and to be accepted as an individual by each owner or passenger, perhaps its most widely known characteristic was its ability to keep going under adverse conditions. None has been made since 1927, but some of them still are rattling around, seemingly as invincible as in their palmy days. Everyone has seen T's on which no single part appeared to be functioning in the manner intended by the original designer, yet the car itself continued to run. THE NEW YORK Yankees appear in some respects to be the tin lizzie of the majors. Before the season started the experts rushed to select the Boston Red Sox in the Ameri can League with some strong individuals holding out for the Yankees and a few others for the defending champions from Cleveland. Had any of them been able to look into a crystal hall in the spring and foresee the tremendous number of injuries the Yankees were to suffer this mmmer, the smart boys would have relegated the Bronx Bombers to the second division in a unanimous manner. YET LIKE FORD'S beloved creation, the Yankees have kept on going and kept on winning. And they have earned the admiration and respect of the baseball fans. The followers who have not pledged undying allegiance to some other junior loop squad have switched to the Yanks. Even those fans whose own teams are w allowing in the depths out of the fight keep one eye on the Yanks as their alternate choice. ONE FAN. who goes so far as to listen to Yankee games on shortwave radio every day, thinks their success is because they have major league players riding the bench, ready and willing to go in and take up the burden when a star is injured. "The whole squad is capable of major league ball where some others have only 10 to 12 good men," the fan says. He also thinks Casey Stengel's handling of the team deserves a plug and brings up a recent play to prove it. Late in a game against Boston recently (not this last series) the Bosox had the bases loaded with one away and Johnny Pesky on third. A left-hander was up. Stengel sent in Mapes to play right field ajid the lefty dropped a short fly in front of him, Mapes fired a strike to the plate to catch Pesky and the tying run he, represented In a force play. Great thinking by Stengel, says the rooter, of The iicson U.S. Takes 19th Straight Wightman Yank Forces Capture All Tennis Duels Doris Hart Needs 22 Minutes For Trophy Clincher PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 10 (AP) Britain's faintly flickering hope of regaining the Wightman Cup perished in just 22 minutes Saturday on the Merion Cricket Club court, and the prized women's international tennis trophy is in the possession of the United States for the 19th straight year. It took Doris Hart of Jacksonville, Fla., just 22 minutes to defeat Mrs. Betty Hilton. 6-1. and 6-3, in the "must" match as far as the English girls were concerned. THE AMERICANS had won the two singles and one doubles match Friday and needed only one victory out of the four matches Saturday to assure a four-out-of seven edge in the competition. Miss Hart's victory relegated the remaining two singles and one doubles match to a "formality" status, although the matches count in the final standing. In the other singles matches Mrs. Margaret Osborne duPont of Wilmington. Del., defeated Mrs. Jean Walker-Smith, 6-4 and 6-2, and Beverly Baker of Santa Monica, Calif., substituting for Louise Brough of Beverly Hills. Calif- defeated Jean Quertier, 6-4 and 7-5. Miss Brough injured her hand. The final doubles match resulted in a 6-4, 8-6 triumph for Gertrude Moran, of Santa Monica, Calif., and Mrs. Patricia Canning Todd of La Jolla, Calif., over Mrs. Hilton and Kay Tuckey. THl'S THE Americans swept through the seven-match series without the loss of a set, although the victory march was in grave I peril at least twice, i Mrs. Hilton did not bow without i putting up a terrific contest, de spite the apparent one-sidedness of the score. She just happened to catch the Jksonville girl at her best, which means Miss Hart was just too strong in all phases of play for her British rival. Although Mrs. Hilton's double faults and her own treacherous backhand lost her many points, the real difference was the depth of Miss Hart's shots and her whistling service which kept the game British girl almost continually on the defensive. the fact Mapes had just gone in as a defensive ace. OIU OWN THOUGHT is that the Yankees are proving an an cient statement of Connie Mack's who once said pitching is 75 per cent of a team's success. While the likes of Joe DiMaggio, Tom Henrich, Yogi Eerra, and even indestructibe Jawn Mize are being knocked to the sidelines, the pitching staff has been cruising along with a minimum of injuries. Bob Porterfield was lost with a sore arm, but the percentage of losses on the hurling side was considerably less. And the Yanks just have completed a successful defense of their first place in a series with Boston, which, on paper, has everything it takes to lead tiie league. he Arizona Republ Men B Murphy, Senators' business manager, shown checking the Gover- nor's Cup play-off tickets.

The wild fracas kept the Cowboys from being shut out in the play-offs. Phoenix had won two in a row from the Waddies at Phoenix. TUCSON OPENED the game with four runs in the first inning. The Solons bounced back with three runs without a hit in the third. But the Cowboys made it look like a runaway with four mrT"0 rune in i Vs-,t nrvi f 4- V a tnira. mat made it 8-3. Then in the fifth the Solons bounced back with five runs to deadlock the game. The two clnbs scored three more apiece in the sixth and the game was tied again, 11 to 11. AFTER TWO Tucson pitchers were shelled from the mound, Ernie Trujillo came in to stop the Solons and earn credit for the victory. And Tony Ponce, the league's top pitcher, took it on the chin as the third Phoenix chucker. The Cowboys broke up the tie in the seventh when PinUv Varcati i tripled to score Tommy Torchia, I who had walked. In the eighth three hits and three Phoenix errors gave Tucson four runs and the ball game. The Senators tried a comeback in the ninth, but the two runs they scored were not enough.
