by don smith BOB Gibson proved to be too much for the Soxl He was definitely the difference as the Cards finally managed to dump the upstart Red Sox with an easy win in the seventh game, 7-2, but the Series had the odds makers in a tizzie most of the time. While our dream that the Bosox would win didn't pan out, neither did the expectations of most of the so- called "big" experts, who thought the St. Louis club could turn the trick in four or five games. It proved they'd been too busy following the powerful Cardinals in the National League where there was no race at all I ANYWAY, Gibson was the master. And he capped his fifth straight World Series victory by hitting a home run. A tired Jim Lonborg of the Sox, who managed to write some new records into the book before taking the hill in the finale on a day when he was top tired to be his best, just couldn't hold the Cards at bay again— after setting them. down on a total of four hits in his first 18 innings against them. They had one more than that in the first three innings of the final fray Thursday. - ?IT was a great Series - and as usual there were numerous stars and some goats. As this column was being written right after the final game ended, the stars seemed to be Gibson, Lonborg, Yastrzemski, Brock, Javier, Flood and Smith, while most notable flops were Cepeda, McCarver and several others who didn't hit the size of their shirt collars. Fielding plays, sensational that is, were a dime a dozen, with Javier repeatedly coining up with great ones and Yaz not far behind. Top player in the Series? He will be announced before you read this, but we'd have to go along with Gibson, with Yaz and Brock right behind. With our luck at guessing, we probably missed that too! DURING the regular season, the Sox hit more home runs than the Cards and the latter club hit at a better clip, .263.255, and we're sure those figures were proven in the Series. Most fans were, amazed that the Bosox were able to stay with the fleet-footed St. Louis club all the way. And many in this area (except for dyed-in-the-wool St. Louis fans) were for the underdog Red Sox. Their manager, Dick Williams, has to be manager of the year in the majors. He turned in a tremendous job, raising a ninth place team into the league championship in one season— and nearly copping the Series, tool IF you want to get fat, don't eat fast and if you want to get thin, don't eat - fast. EARLY reports on the United Fund drive here were quite good, according to Pudge Miller, pres* ident, and Harry Greenberg, drive chairman, for the local organization. Through Tuesday, Oct. 10, $5,800 had been collected or pledged, 36 percent of the goal of $16,000 set earlier. By now, much more is in the coffers - but don't let up now and allow everyone except you to contribute to this very worthy cause. Pve talked to quite a few persons in the business area near the UDM office and most have upped what they gave from previous years. We hope lots of people do the same. THE deaths of those three persons following an airplane crash in the mountains of northern California last spring must have been horrible. They lived, although injured in the crash, for a couple of months without anything to eat and using melted snow for water. A deer hunter accidentally discovered the bones of two of the victims in a hardly-ever travelled wilderness, and searchers were looking for the remains of the husband and father of the other two at last report. Immediately after the crash, planes sent to the area to look for the three had all kinds of trouble due to heavy fog. One of the searchers was a son of the dead man. - ?IOWA Heart Ass' n officials recently released information which might be of importance to men and women during the hunting season. Hunters should wear warm, but not weighty clothing, eat moderately and avoid becoming overheated and tired. In case you're in a hunting party and a member suffers a heart attack, keep the stricken person absolutely still, get medical help at once even if the victim has to be left alone, keep the patient warm, but not warm enough so he perspires, make him comfortable and administer no liquids or stimulants, unless the person has medication prescribed by his physician, then give the proper dosage. No one should hunt alone I SIGN in an optometrist's window — If you don't see what you want, you've come to the right place I NOTED the other day in a daily that the head of the U.S. Welfare Dept., Mary Switzer, even agrees the nation's relief programs are a DISGRACE I Her statement was made in a feature story, which pointed out that "hundreds of thousands of Americans have settled down under welfare as a way of life." Her decisions affect the lives of almost eight million men, women and children in this glorious country and the expenditure of almost $5 billion in federal funds (from taxpayers, pardner). SHE is one of the higher-ups in the Dept. of Health, Education and Welfare and that department's number of employees has risen in recent years from 62,000 to 106,000. Costs have risen from $2.1 to $4.2 billion and will reach an estimated $8 billion in the next five years. With that increase in number of employees, it's nowonderalot of the money spent on relief never gets to the intended recipients. WE'VE said it before - and we'll say it again: we think welfare and relief for needy persons are necessary, but for goodness sakes, let's use a little sense, cut the employment factor to the bone (thereby giving all the employees something to do), and get the funds to the right people. Persons in that type of work certainly can figure out deserving and non-deserving recipients. Let's do it - and make sure the deserving ones get what they need and the others can go to heckl We're a little tired of having some persons living higher off the hog than the people that work every day to existl Apparently Mary Switzer feels the same way about it. We'll bet there are no changes made — unless she is firedl SIGN in a vacant store — We undersold everyone! Notes Of iServicemei SAIGON, VIETNAM - Army Staff Sergeant Robert A.
