Y, JULY 31, 1939 Wrestling Match Is the Berries Red Sox Finally Beat Browns; Doclgcrsj Phillies Twice BY CEOIUJK KlllKSKV Unilcd Press Jilaff Correspondent NEW YORK, July 31 (UP)—If there are any black magic men hex breakers or jinx destroyers on 1 of work, they should apply to Jimmy Dykes of the Chicago Wliiti Hox. Don't he bashful, becaust Dykes can use a dozen to rid the White Sox of evil spirits and purveyors of bad luck. By oil rights- the White Soj should have smacked the Yankee.* down twice yesterday, but the 1 nieiely got an even break. The ovl hand worked several days fixini the stage for their loss in tlie op eiier. • ' Alike Krcevieh was hurl in Bos. ton, and Gerald Walker was injured in Hie first Yankee game yesterday, robbing Dykes of his only two right-handed hilling outfielders to say nothing of Walker's punch. Thus Dykes had to play an all-left-handed hitting outfield of Radcllff, Rosenthal and Steiri- Iracher against Lefty Gome/. As It was two breaks beat (he White Sox. In the second inning DiMagglo hit a single. Then Dickey liH a double-play grounder to Kuhel, who booted Ihe ball. Selkirk followed with a homer which made three inns where the Yanks should liavc had only one. Selkirk rapped another homer—No. 17—in the; fourth. Then in tlie ninth (lie White Sox scored three runs nnd had the tying run on third base with one out, when Dykes called for the squeeze play. Hayes missed tlie ball, and McNair was caught flat-footed off third. Hayes then tapped in front of (lie plaic to end the game, the Yanks winning 4-3. It was tiie third loss of the season for 39-year-old Ted Lyons, who in his glorious comeback has scored 10 victories. In tlie nightcap the While sox won, 5-1, when Thornton Lee spellbound the Ynnks with his left- handed shots. With Jimmy Poxx driving in four runs with his 25th homer, a double, and a single, (lie Red Sox salvaged the last game of the series from the Browns, 0-4. Umpire McQownn chased Fred Haney, Browns' pilot, fov protesting a called ball. Detroit won two from the Athletics, H-o and S ; 3. Buck Nowsom scored his 12th,,*In. ins-the -opener, yielding oniy five " hits. 1 Higgins, Groenbcrg, Pox and Croiicher hit homers. Freddy Hulchinson won his first major league game in tlie nightcap with some relief aid from Paul (Don't Call Me Dizzy) Trout in the last 2 2-3 frames. Washington trimmed Cleveland, 5-2, behind Joe Krakauskas' steady eight-hit, pitching. George Case drove in three rims with two singles. The red-hot Reds continued to stamiiede the National League race, stretching their winning streak to ID with n double victory over tlie Phillies, 8-2 and B-I. Bucky Walters scored his 18th victory and seventh straight in (lie opener. It was his 20th complete game out of 21. Johnny Vander Mcer broke his long drouth with a live-nil, victory in the nightcap. He had to go to the ninth to win when Billy Myers hit a homer with the bases loaded and two out. Tlie Reds now lead by 12 games. The Cardinals bent the Dodgers twice. 5-2 eacli lime, and moved back into second place. Tom Sunkel won the opener, thanks to Don Padgett's homer with two on. Bob Bowman bested Hugh Casey in the nightcap. Corl Hubbell, pitching his third full game of the season, hurled the Giants to a 3-1 victory over the Cubs. Errors by Dick Bartell and Billy Herman proved disastrous to Vance Page, who pitched a five-hit game, one of the hits being Mel Ott's 19th homer The Bees beat the Pirates, 1-5 in tlie first game of a twin bill and were leading a-3 at tlie end of four innings in the nightcap when the Pennsylvania Sunday la\v stopped the game. Mnx West hit liomer No. 12. Yesterday's hero: George Selkirk, whose two homers accounted for nil the Yankee runs as the world champions beat the White Sox, 4-3, Mud, ice cream, smelt and now it's blueberries.

(Up)—All know about the report that the Yankee baseball empire is going to be sold is that it can be had— for a price. The asking price would oe arniiul $10,000,000 but if anybody came along and laid $8,000,000 3n tlie line in ready money, the Heirs would wrap the whole thing up in tinfoil and say, "Tnke it mister." You must keep iiuiiind thalwhon Jnke Huppen wris alive the Yankees were his pride and joy and about the only hobby he knew in us late years. Today the Yankees inny be n pride and joy to the icirs but they are no hobby and if the heirs are to get any substantial dough out of (lie estate rf the Inte brewer it must come from the sales of property, and the Yankees with their 'far-Hung chain system With night baseball maybe Breadon and the Cards cauld make a go of it; 'Without night baseball they are definitely licked. The Cards are still very much in the pemmnl fight in their league mid yet they aren't drawing peanuts, as the boys say, and of course yen can't blame Ihe people from slaying away from the Browns; considering the shape they are in. Well, my thought on this is that NEWS • But Visitors Capture Medal And Medal Runncr-Up Honors Slytlievllle golfers easily repelled nn invasion of kcnnetl, MO., golfers In nil iiiler-cliib tournament played over the countiy cliiU course licro Sunday, The score, based on <x point system, wiis 32 to 12.

This brings me up to what think may eventually be the solu lion to the messy baseball situatloi which exists in St. Louis, which i strictly a one-club city, but whlcl tries with • commercial futility t support two major league clubs(he Cards and Browns. I happen lo know that the Yan Sees ivoiiltl not mind sellin°" thei Kansas City club, which is in tin process of building up an enviabk attendance and artistic record Whats more Kansas City itself )ia« major league aspiration. The lean is it. stands today prcbably coulo jerforrn creditably in either cf the big leagues. It. wouldn't win am jennnnts but it would do all right I happen to knew that if Sain Breadon. who owns the Cards, wants o buy the Kansas City club he will lot have the door slammed in his ace And this goes fcr the bunch 3i bt. Louis business men who are Behind the Bronns. What I'm try- ng to say is that if either Breadon or the Browns' grcup wants to mcve, the Yankees will listen to a proposition concerning Kansas City Everybody in baseball kncws tlie it. Louis situation lias reached uch a slate that something must tie dene and that something uuounts to moving cue of the clubs, ither the Browns or the Cards, out of town. Breadon has his home there and doesn't want to move- the people back of tlie Broivns think that in time they can put their enterprise ever successfully. What's going to come out, of this stalemate? Oft hand it would seem (o be a tug of war of nuances. Can ; Broaden outlast the other fellows " in a plural losing adventure? How much more money can Breadon afford to lose in trying to force the Browns to surrender? How far can the people back of the Browns affcrd to go? My guess—and it's striclly n guess —is that when the final answer is written the American League will dominate St. Louis baseball. First, because it's traditionally an American League city. Second, I have reason to believe that the group back of the Browns has received assurances frcm the American League directors that they arc In (heir comer. Why do I say that? Well, what do you think is back of tlie Browns' refusal to put out any mere to in B^rly iccoinotlves carried stacks ulled' to™ of 7^ 5? rnaii of baled hay to protect the pas- clal Hole, and it has helwd Br"ok- sengers in case the boiler exploded.! )yn, Philadelphia ClevelandL etc. Sold to Brooklyn A1EMPHIS, Tcnn., July 31 (OP) -Carl Doyle, right-handed pitcher, •as sold today to the Brooklyn Dodgers and will report lo tlie -——.... ^.

THREE-FINGERED WARNING Nature does produce some things that are unkind, to man—but she usually advertises their poisonous presence. For instance, the shiny three-fingered- leaves of poison ivy shout "Danger: Keep Out" to any one familiar with the Great Outdoors. The advertising which men do to their fellow men is of a different sort. We advertise the 0ood'things,' and do not mention those we've found not good. There's a reason for that. Merchants know that if they call attention to inferior merchandise, their reputation and consequently their business will suffer. That is why you can safely rely on advertised products. Make a habit of reading the advertisements—and see how much time, money and shopping- grief you save yourself!
