Here U Bedlam with Gloves on if there e\er was such a thing. - Matters weren't helped a great deal by the goings-on at Madison Square Garden last night when Ceferino Garcia scored a technical kncckput over Fred Apostoli, a reformed elevator operator \vho probably has,had enough of the ups and downs In the ring and will soon be back at the business of calling "sbtth floor—children's underwear, garden hose, plajer pianos, women's budget shop and house furnishings." Just what did Garcia win by stepping, Apostoli In the seventh round? To answer that one you'd have to kttow what, titles Apostoli though he came troni Brooklyn. Before this could worry them very much, however, Hostak knocked out Krclgcr, who quit the ring and started making n good, hon<vit living as a rookie. Stcele retired and efforts were made to get Hos- Uk and Apostoli together, but their managers don't like one another and wouldn't talk business. Besides, or so the story gees, Hoslak's manager, one Druxman, is also a promoter in Seattle and doesn't care to expose his chief meal tick- el and gate nltrnclton to any undue clanger. ' | My suggestion for the settling of the tangle Is to assemble all able- bodied persons weighing between 145 and 1GO pounds and play n game cf eenlc-inccny-mlny-mo, the winner to be given the title.

Big Clipper Smith Is taking .liberties with the dogma of Knute Rockne that are nothing short of scandalous. Die-hards look askance 'at the Villanova strategist's contributions to the aesthetic side, caring not a whit that they are practical as well as pretty. When the old Notre Dame star's backs go into a pas de niiatre, or perform a series of thrilling en- trechats with a swish of silken Ircascrs and rhythmic swinging o! arms,' Clipper Smith is hot trying to amuse the customers. He Is attempting to bemuse the opposition. •-.... Smith succeeds mere often' than not. Last season his troup was acclaimed victor on all -but: one occasion,- and that lapse, -.was merely a sharing.of honors with South Carolina, Tlie previous season was likewise clevcld of:failure'. The Clipper has harnessed his players' physical energy; set it to music and caused it to flow smoothly and rhythmically in basic Notre Dame, f:rmations and numerous .variations thereof. ; Eleven young men gel thalr heads together in'a huddle, then suddenly storm up to the ball'roar'4 Ing defiance at.' the enemy.

While McCarthy i s assuming' a pose of wori-y and unxlcly about Ills pitchers, Manager Bill Mc- Keclmle of the Reds lias His moundsmcn all lined up to face the |m-er that is the New York Yanks, It'll be lall Paul Derringer in the opener, Bucky Walters In the second game Thursday and Gene Thompson In the third game at Cincinnati Saturday. There is some justification for, McCarthy being upset about Rut- nng. The ccld and rainy weather 1 of the past fcvl days hasn't helped Rufling's arm which'has been both- ; ering him since mid-September "fluffing tells me he wants' to throw a few more before making up his .mind about his nrnr" said MvOorlliy. "If lie decides lie's reads' ieiUie'11 pitch the -opener. 1 If Ruffing isn't ready, then the Yankee band wagcn is going to lose a lot of supporters. With Lefty Gomez apparently out of the series with a pulled muscle in his side, the loss of Ruffing wculd make the Reds' cause skyrocket. Without Ruffing and Oomez, McCarthy would be np' r agaiiist it for pitchers. His opening game chcice, if Hutting's arm isn't ready, would be between Monte Pearson ami Oral Hiklobrand. Pearson has pitched only one go:d game in five weeks and -has gone the route only eight times this season. It's true he has pitched and won a world series game each of the past three years but his many aches and pains, real cr imaginary, always make him a gamble every lime he starts. Behind Pearson, McCarthy .has Hiidcbrand anrt Bump Hadley arid neither of them is any Derrlifer or Walters. Without Ruf/ing in form, the Yanks are not only 3-1 shot.s—hardly better than 8-5. The break in the schedule which gives the clubs a day fcr travel between the two cities is perfect for the Reds.
