George E. T. Eyston, Eng land, quit this shimmering speedway Wednesday and brought the high speed racing season to a close. Because the giant "Thunderbolt" was crippled beyond quick repair, the lank, nerveless, retired infantry captain ended his attempt, at least for this year, to raise his world's land speed record of 357.5 M.P.H. above the coveted six-mile-a-minute mark.

DUCKY HITS HOMER AS Paul Dean Blanks HOLDS BOSTON TO SEVEN HITS Second Game of Twin Bill Called Off BOSTON, MASS. (ff) Ducky Wucky Medwick drove in all the run Wednesday as the St. Louis Cardinals shut out Boston's Bees, 4 to 0, in the first game of a scheduled doubleheader. Paul Dean, in his second start since a short term in the Texas league, allowed the Bees but seven hits, all singles. The second game was called because of high wind and rain in the first half of the third inning. Neither team had scored. A base on balls to Stu Martin and a two-base error by Elbie Fletcher on Slaughter's grounder and Medwick's single accounted for the Cards' first run. In the eighth, Ducky's twentieth homer of the season shot into the leftfield bleachers and scored the two Martins. The two teams are scheduled to play a doubleheader today. St. u AB. H O.

USE YOUR CREDIT DMDSONS Yanks Taste 6th Straight Loop Defeat CHICAGO, ILL. .V The New York Yankees, still looking for their first victory as 1938 pen-n a n t winners, stretched their eight - year record losing streak to six games Wednesday b y U'cking away 5 to ? decision to the White Sox. Three errors, committed b y the usually relia-b 1 e secondbase combination of mikk rrukvhh Frankie Crosetti and Rookie Joe Gordon, handed the Sox five un- earned runs on a platter and ruined an otherwise well pitched ball game for Lefty Gomez. Out Pitche Ie. As a result, Lefty, trying for his eighteenth victory, suffered his twelfth defeat instead. He gave up only five hits and fanned seven, while his mates tagged Southpaw Thornton Lee for seven safeties. Lou Gehrig connected for two hits, one a homer, in the seventh inning, and Joe Glenn hit a double and two singles, driving !n the only other Yankee run, but otherwise there was none of the feared consistent hitting by the New Yorkers. Gordon Muffs One. The Sox got away in front with two runs in the first inning, and sewed up the game with three more in the fourth. In the opening frame, with the bases loaded and two out, Gordon let Gerry Walker's grounder go through his legs and bo runs scored. In the fourth, Crosetti's error let a runner get to third with one out. Then Gordon picked up a dou Die- play ball and hit a baserunner on the head with it. The ball bounced into the stands, one run came in, and two followed a moment later when Mike Kreevich singled to center, N. York AB. H. O. A.
