PAGE EIGHT Would Have To Do Recorc Facleoul To Lose; Reds Lose '•'.'' By GEORGE KIEKSET United Press Staff Correspondent NEW YORK, Sept. 5,-Tlie Ynn kces today were rolling down DID home stretch with t!te American League pennant in the bag. 'By kldclng the Athletics around twice yesterday, 7-0 and 2-0, they placed themselves in a position •Aliero they would have to outdo all previous September collapses lo toss away the pennant. The I?cil Sox helped the Yanks more Ilinn somewhat by blcwlng a pair lo Washington, 7-fi and fl-4. With n 14',!: game lead rmd only 25 games left to play the Yanks need to win only 12 of them to clinch the flag regardless of wrml .the Red Sox do. Boston can win all its remaining 20 games and stii! not finish ahead of the Yanks. Tiie National League race is something else again. The Reds ore doing their bast to make it another photo finish. Tiiey lost lo the Cards yesterday, 4-0, and then fought, like mad men to gain a G-G tie in the nightcap called at the end of the ninth beca\ise of darkness. The tie will be played off todny, both clubs having open dates. The Cards' victory, accomplished with n fotir- rim rally off : Wliltcy Moore In the first frame, trimmed Cincinnati's lead to four games. Pittsburgh gave the Cute a dose of their own medtcine of September a year ago when they knccked off the Wrlglcys, 2-1 and 6-3, jusl about sounding a dentil knell on the Cubs' nickerljig pennant, hopes, leaving them eight off the pace—12 .on the losing side. Elbic Fletcher's homer with the bases jammed won the nightcap sifter Max Butcher had outtwirled Diray Dean in the opener. The Giants regained fourth place • by grabbing a daublchcader from the Phillies, 10-0- and 7-G. , •'. Brooklyn divided with the .Bees, •winning the opener, 5-4, on O;okle lavagetto's single, and losing the closer, 5-2. .Red Rolfe's single in the eighth climaxed a five rim rally which gave; thc ; Yanks a 7-G win over the A's in the opener. Marlus Russo ' hulled a three hlller to give the B p ;mbers the nightcap. Charley Colbert's triple with the v bases loaded was the high spot, of Washington's rnlly which won the opener from the Red Sox, 7-6. Pete - Applcton held (he Red Sox ta foiir hits in the afterpiece. The Browns defeated the Tigers, 3-2, but >«ere held to a 5-5 lie (called In the eighth because of darkness) in the nightcap. The Chicago White Sox drove Bob Feller, from the box with a three run burst in the 10th lo beat the Indians, 6-3, before a night crowd of 30,000 in Cleveland. The afternoon game scheduled was rained out. • • » . »_ • Yesterday's hero—Elbie Fletcher, who hit his nth liciner with the bases loaded In the second gume to give Pittsburgh a twin win over the: Cubs. HAVERFORD, Pa., Sept. 5 (UP) -As two young Australians slood on the center court of the Merlon Cricket club yesterday and ivltd enraptured faces received the Davis Cup, which they had won by beating the best (hat the United States could produce In the challenge round, It was difficult not to recal 25 years hack when a .similar scene was presented. Just a quarter of a century ago Australia scored Its last Davis Cuj victory, nnd on that occasion two other youngsters named Normal Broikcs and Anthony Wilding received the Tnicrnnllonai trophy vlth beaming smiles and broad jrlns, Then they marched nwuy (o var, from which Tony Wilding icvcr returned. In n few brief days Jack Brom- •ich and Adrian Qulst also will ail for thalr part of the world vhcre another war' rages, They rc- clvecl (heir sailing orders from he Australian war office less than i hour after their moment of tri- nph. On Sept. 13 they will sail ram IXM Angeles on the S. S. tonlerey and the next game they lay will be one In which guns olley and thunder. . But Quist, the elder of the two mstralian players, was \ve}l aware f the probable fate that awaited Irn even as he look the court. Iftcr he had btaten Bobby niggs i the match which to all intents IK! purposes sealed Australia's ictory, he told his friends of his motion. "I want to take a good look at iat cup," he said, "for It may be he last time I ever shall sec H. may sound trite but I have n remonitlon that history Is going BASEBALL STANDINGS Southern League W.

I've felt that all aj 1 . Wilding won (he decisive latch '25 years ago and was the irst to die. I won it today be- ause we all knew that Branuvich ,'ould beat Parker. You understand ,'lwt I mean. Don't you?" Everyone did and Hint probably ccounls for the thunderous np- lause that went up when the .uslralians won. I don't believe here was a. person "present In the >ig crowd who would have wanted 3 see the Australians sail away in efeat. It is a sad journey they re making even in victory. As for the cup Itself, the better earn won. One is almost tempted o say the gamer team. Since the rcphy was placed In competition n 1300, it was the first time that any team ever lost the first Iwo nalclies and ctune on to win. ;WliDn Riggs beat Dromwlch and Barker beat Qulst in the opening singles matches on Saturday, it seemed that Australia didn't have a chance. Even when they defeated. Joe Hunt and Pack Kramer at Joublcs on Sunday the odds ngainsl hem seemed Insurmountable. The American.) imd shown such a superiority In singles that it would lot have .been surprising to see hem win both matches yesterday nd make the challenge round tie lo 1. But there was n complete re- 'ersnl of form. Rlggs went out gainst Quist too cocky and loo urc of himself. He held the bronze aired Qulst, a little loo lightly. But Qulst, as it drawing on that ourage which he hns stored up or the months that lie ahead, lit out with rnckless abandon that ncllcated that he was willing to Ise or fall on every point. Ills hols came off, his gambling was apld. Smart as Rlggs Is, he could ict devise a tactic that would Jreak the rhythm of the Atistral- an. He tried everything and cvery- hing was In vain. His courage brought him two ls. but two sou were not quite nough, for In the fifth and nual et the Australian rode' again to he attack and would not be de- led. Qiilst won, fi-i, G-i, 3-6, 3-6, There is no use beating around' 10 bush concerning the Bromwich- 'atkor match even though the des- natlon of the cup depended on ie outcome. It was so bad that undrcds cf spectators left the ladiuni and went into the club- ouse. Bromwicli took the court •ith one instruction from the cam's coach, Fred Perry. He was rdered to play 1,000 shots to Parkr's ridiculous forehand, and if that idn't break down the American's ame, to play 1,000 more. The man who took the message to Garla (what was that fellow's name nyway) never followed an order lore explicitly. . Under the pressure, Parker's forc- mnd completely collapsed and he vas able to win only four of the 2 games and was routed 6-0, 6-3, -1. He was so Inept that Walter 'ate must have felt embarrassed or him. Honestly, he played no better than your little girl could play. Brcmwich played little' better han Parker, but he didn't have to. Without doubt it was the worst singles match ever played in a Davis Cup challenge round. The chances arc that no one will challenge Australia for the trophy for several years to come There are bigger battles to be fought, and at the moment tennis seems awfully unimportant.

By United Press The Southern Association race today remained n nearly neck-ami- neck proposition between Nashville Vols and the Memphis Chicks and at the current rate the winner won't bo decided until (he final games. The Chicks pulled (o wiihln halt n game of the leading Vols yesterday by dividing u doiiblchcadcr with '.t'c Little Heck Travelers while Knoxvlllo was edging Nashville in a single contest. Memphis won (he opener, 4 to 2, by hopping on the ollei-lngs of Col- tcn Braxle for all their runs In the first three Innings.. Ed Heusser, Chick relief ace, halted the Pebble.; when thoy started rallying nl the expense of Frank Oaddy In the late frames. Little Rock came up with a two-run rally In the last Inning to take [he second game 1 to 6. The Knoxvllle Smokies' young third baseman, Mike Goda, broke up another game when he doubled with the bases packed In the ninth. The blow drove home enough runs for the Smokies to defeat Nashville, 7 to C. Atlanta and' Chattanooga divided i pair, Atlanta taking the first be- lilnd Clyde Smoll's four-hit pitching and Chattanooga evening the count 'With a 4 lo 3 decision in' the ifterplccc.

The second game was rained out. Today's games: Nnshvllle at 'Atlanta; Little Hock at, Birmingham and Knoxvllle at Chattanooga. Sinkey In Win Over Malone Charles Sinkey . outroughcd a Jattllng Irishman named Eddie Malone In the feature grappling match at the American Legion arena here last night, winning two out of three falls to down the pride of eld County Kerry. Malone returned blow for blow with the big Mlssissippian in one of the roughest matches seen here recently, but he \vas playing Sinkcy's same and couldn't win. Sinkey took the first In 25 hectic minutes with a body slain and pin. The Jim Londos toe held was the weapon Malone used to win the second fall aud even the score in a ten mln- ule frame. Sinkey finally polished the' popular Irishman off with a body pin to take the third fall in ten minutes. The George Bennett-Tony Gara- baldl bout which opened the show ended in a deadlock as the one iiour time limit expired after each nad gained a fall. Bennett scored first with a body pin and Gara- raldi's surf board was good enough to win the second.

I'ATKONS ENTITLED TO HUN FOR THEIR MONEY It Is difficult to understand why managers surrender so quickly in llicsc days when many a pap fly gees for n home run. Yet Bill Terry showed his derision for his pitchers by putting In First Baseman Johnny McCarthy when the Giants trailed Pittsburgh by five runs in tile fifth. Terry Moore IIM-pitched for the Cardinals this season. Joe Marty and Bud Hafey for the Phillies." Myril Hong for the Browns and Jimmy Foxx for the Red Sox. The majors should pass a rule prohibiting managers from pitching anyone not officially lisled as a pitcher. One reason the Yankees ore so Patrons should ue refunded thc-ir money when managers make a joke of the game. Puhy Aspirant For Navy Now Is Strong Man ELDORADO, III.
