PAGE TEN Continues As Big Show 01 . Team; Reels Split Gain BY GEORGE KJRKSEY United Press Sfaff Correspondent •NEW YORK, Sept. 1 (UP1- Some people don't appreciate Joe DiMaggio Realise lliey say jic hasn't nny color—because lie's too quiet—because lie's never been put out of a" bal Ignrne—because lie doesn't throw his .glove up In (lie air, ad JnfinlUmi. But you never hear them criticize him for not, being able-to hit or Held, In fact DiMaggio Is the greatest hitter In baseball and the .greatest outfielder as well. Those statements are not entirely beyond dispute, but for every one who takes exception to either of them I'll produce 10 who'll vote the straight DIMnggio ticket. DiMaggio never had a better day! than yesterday, when, lie exploded Jils 20th homer to give the Yankees I a. 2-1 victors' over the pesky Boston Red Sox. With the score tied, 1-1, DiMaggio tiled to win the game In .the sixth when lie led off with a single and stole second. He seldom tries to steal but when he does it's because he's trying to win n ball game. But his mates left him stranded. ; Then . DiMnggio took the issue into,his own hands iu the eighth and walloped a' homer breaking up a beautiful left-handed hurling duel b'etweiv left Gomez and Ol' Mose rove. .• It was a heartbreaker for Grove to lose, making the third straight time he's failed in an effort to notch. No. 13. Four lied Sox errors (one by himself) made it tough -for Grove. ..The Yanks now lead the American League race by 15'i games and the Red Sox are going to be hard to hold, second place against the hustling White Sox who beat the Browns, 7-2. John Rlgney won his llth straight.. The White Sox mw are only 3* games back of the runner-up Red Hose. •Detroit moved Into a virtual four-place tie with Cleveland by beating the Indians, 2-0. Rudy York's 14th homer after Gehrlnger had walked accounted for the only runs off Al Mllnar who pitched a live-hitter. - . ] "Connie Mack saw his first ball game since he was stricken with illness three months ago when he watched his Athletics lose to the. Senators, 0-3. Dutch Leonard held the A's to nine hits to win his 17th game. Cincinnati increased its National League lead to 5 fj games by dividing .n doubleheader with Pittsburgh while the Cardinals were routed 1) yihe Cubs. The Pirates won the opener, 5-4, in a innings, taking advantage of the Reds' five errors. The Reds won the nightcap, 4-3, in 10 thnings, behind Paul Derringer who notched his 19th triumph. - -Larry French .scored his fifth straight triumph and his I2lh of the' season when he pitched the Cubs to an easy 11-3 win Over the Cords. The Glnnts belted Bill Posedel for 13 hits in six frames and beat the Bees, 10-4. Harry Gumbcrt won ills 14th victory. Brooklyn's seven - game night schedule drew a total of $205,214 after 20,133 fans paid to see the Dodgers end the nrc light so.ison (it Ebbets Held last night wjth n 2-1 victory over the Phillies. Luke Hamlln hung up his nth victory, scattering eight hits. Yesterday's hero—Joe DiMaggio, Yanks' dynamiter, who made a single and homer in two times nt bit to give his team n victory over the" Red Sox and keep his batting average 1n the .405 class. Conference Foes Threaten To Dethrone Mighty Duke isv WAI/TEH LOGAN llnlln] Press Stan' Coirrsiionilrni RALEIGH, N. C. (UP)—Every team in the Southern Conference will be much better this year than last—und Coach Wallace Wade's Duke Blue Devils, unscored on during (lielr regular playing season In 1938, arc no exceptions. But Wade's men will have no pushovers In the conference. North Carolina State and Wake Forest, teams that held Duke lo a one- tcuchdown victory last fall, are bigger olid better. North Carolina, vhlch lost by two touchdowns to Duke, is out for revenge. Another team Ihnt will make n troiig bid for conference honors Is ?lemson. The Tigers had a string if impressive victories in 1938 and licy are rated 100 per cent im- Ji-ovcd. Virginia Military Institute an't be overlooked either. The remaining teams in the con- ereuce are rated below those men- ioned, but any of them may take he giant-killing role and ruin a oocl season's record of a confer- nce leader. There aren't any very oor learns in the group. Virginia Quietly Watts Virginia Is not n member o! the onferente, but the Cavaliers play Ix conference teams and they are ready this fail. Virginia- meets Nortli Carolina in the annual Thanksgiving game and may be all set to even up n 20-0 defeat last year. Duke lost Eric Tlpton and Dan Hill by graduation, but their places are nmply filled, and the Blue Devils are expected lo be Just as strong on defense as they were last year—and tremendously Improved on offense. George McAfee can kick just as accurately and get more distance than the sensational Tlpton. D. c. "Peahead" Walker is the man to watch, however. His Demon Deacons of Wake Forest were good last year and the team was composed almost, entirely of sophomores. These sophomores have experience and co-ordination now and will be hard to stop. They arc rated as "as good as the best—and maybe better." Couches Give Views Here's what some of the conches have, to say about the situation: Wade: I think Hint we will have n good team nt Duke this /nil. Ray Wollc, head coach at North Carolina: Carolina 1ms prospects for a tcntn about like last year. It mny be stronger in some .departments but weaker in others. . . . We should have a beller ncrlal game with two passers like Stlrn- weiss and Lnlnnnc. Jess Ncely^ Clemson: The only thing we cnti ,"do at present is to hope for the best. ... I cannol say that the outlook Is any too bright this fall, and neither can it be considered exactly gloomy. A. T. S. Hubert, V. M. I.: The prospects for V. M. I.'s football team are not as bright for 1039 as they were for 1038 for one big reason—graduation. "Peaheart" Walker: The other boys in the conference have Wake Fcrest greatly overrated. I think they are building us up for a big fall. Soul!) Carolina oiiblfui Rex Enrlght, -South Carolina: Tills lias started me thinking of our opening football game with Wake Forest, Such an opening game is enough to ruin any eoacii's peace of mind. Henry Redd, Virginia Tech: I would say that . . . Hie Virginia Tech squad this year Is potentially better limn last year's. "Dubby" Dobson, Maryland: 1 expect to have n good team. Carl Voylcs, William and Wary: If we win one or two games I will be quite well satisfied. Glenn Thistletliwalte, Richmond: Richmond appears on paper to be equal In strength t otlie 1938 team. "Doc" Newton, N. c. State: We arc counting on a samewhat, Im- proved offense at Slate this year, and us Coach Neely nt CletriMit said recently, it mny be better, or it may be worse or it may be about Ihe same, A. P. .McLeod, Furmnn: Our team will be more experienced than last year's and should play better football. W. E. Tilson, Washington and Lee: As our sophomores are always an unknown quantity it is hard to predict our season. BUTTLE TO Memphis Chicks Best Chance Comes In Double [leader Today By Uiillcil Press The Memphis Chicks played a passive role in their own destiny today while the Nashville Vols fought desperately to save a narrow lead In the hot Southern Association llnlsli. Idle for two straight days, the Chicks were still half a game to the rear as the result of Nashville's splitting n two-game set with the Atlanta Crackers. Will) only three days of Ihc race remaining, Memphis' best chance lo recover the lead it held nearly «)1 season wns In n double-header with the Knoxvlllc Smokies today. The Vols play host lo the sislh- placo Liltlc Rock Travelers. Tlie Vols lost to Atlanta 5 to 1 last night -when Larry Miller of the Cracker mound staff hurled a six-hitter. Ace Adams went great guns for the Vols Ihe first six innings but was routed wllh a tlirec- run Cracker rally in the seventh. The third - place Chattanooga Lookouts' pennant hopes went glimmering when the Knoxville Smokies slipped in an 11 to 2 defeat. Oadis Swigart stilled the Chattanooga batting attack on five hits while his mates rapped Poll! ami Lucas for 11. Jim Bagby, normally a pitpher batted the Little Rock Travelers to a Z^to 1 decision over Ihe Dhming- linm Barons and sewed 'up sixth place for the Pebble.;.

They all open up with a vivid paragraph listing (lie 1033 schedule, continue with a superbly written chapter listing the coaching staff, and Ihcn take your brenlli iiway with passages describing the seating arrangements of the stadium and the prices for the various games.

This figure does not include Ihe St. Mary's cstlmale, which usually runs between ten and fifteen, according to the \vhim of that school's publicity chief when he tits down to glorify the mad men of the Moraga. Judging by the tenor of the statements of the coaches in the booklets all of them must have employed Dean Inge, the very Bloomy Dean Inge, to ghost write for diem.
