EARL 31.000 sat in on the obsequies arranged by left-hander Max Lanier, a pitcher of speed and curving stuff with a touch of wildness, and Ted Wilks, freshman right-hander who rescued Lanier in the sixth to assure OF WlSCOdSl'J MALP0ACI v fS O?

The rest did not climb to reach the Browns, but like the foregoing ran around for a while and then found iheir level. Slats Marion, the greatest shortstop since lionus Wagner, and according to some a better fielder than the old Flying Dutchman, is a product of a Cardinal baseball school. He played three seasons at the Rochester, N. Y., Cardinal farm, lias been with the parent club four seasons and couldn't be bought for twice bis weight In gold, plus a helping of platinum. When this war is over and the Cardinals whip their forces together again, they will be the most formidable thing In baseball because of their minor league backlog. Don't be surprised if this possibly cheapest of world series winners winds up dominating baseball for a time until the others ciyi reorganize. hits into the sixth when he walked two and served a wild pitch. Then Wilks came on the scene to turn the Drowns back without anything more than a loud foul, while striking out four. 02 Strike Out its goodness staffs trickling over your tongue, that's all you'll want to think about. Thete's a zesty, refreshing tang to it that can only be derived from choicest beer grains plus the highest" sioll in modern brewing. That's why, Sterling is getting first call everywhere these days. Good things go first, you know. So, try Sterling today, because, it's the brew for you. Two records of some consequence for futility were broken. The total of strike outs for the series, a grand and glaring !2, shattered the previous high established when the Card inal beat the Philadelphia Athletics in 1931. The Cardinal's hurlers also o SERIES NOTES ST. 1,01'IK Although the contending clubs In the world series received an aggregate of only f from the receipts due to war donations, the players themselves cost the two clubs much less than that, probably setting a new all-time low for the price of world series personnel. Except when outfielder Oanny Litwliiler was on the Held, there vasn't a man in the game who stood his club more Iban $!itlu. Most of them cost much less. Litwliiler came to tho Cardinals from the Phillies in exchange for Buster Adams, Coaker Triplett and Dain Clay, and that made him something of a gem in the series. The Cards got pitcher Mori Cooper for V 1 and lie Inter on brought brother Walker Cooper, the catcher, to ramp for the cost of n round trip ticket. The return stub wasn't used. enth game, but it turned out according to script. Anything other than a cardinal victory would have been incredible, according to the way they played contrasted to the Browns. Sewell yanked Potter after Lanier's lilt in the fourth and Bob Hun-crief did well enough until he was, relieved for a pinch hitter, whereupon Jack Kramer took over in the seventh. He too was unscored upon, but he and Muncrief both had men on bases, whereas Wilks got better as he went along. In the ninth he struck out Milt Byrnes and Mike Cliartak a pair of pinch-hitters, to end it. The winning pitcher was Lanier over I'otter. Lanier, thus accounted for his all time second world series victory against one defeat. He put the period to proceedings which saw the Cards spot the Browns the first game, then tie it at one-all, then drop the third game and follow that by sweeping three in a row. .Marion Top Player The most spectacular player in the Sterling bkewess, inc., vansviii, ind. AIL-CRAIN The least fearsome array of pinch-bllters ever to appear in the world series was presented by the Browns. Their last eight clutch substitutes all struck out in a row Sunday and yesterday.

That is the kind of a series this one was. A record breaker for feebleness.

That finally and without rebuttal is the story of this strange series in which there wasn't a hit and run play, an attempted steal and. actually, very little base ball from the Browns after the first three games.
