By The Associated Press Jubilant Now York fans, envisioning the possibility of their first? Giant-Yankee Subway World Scries since 1D37, proudly pointed today to the slugging Joe Di- Mnggio of the Yankees and Johnny Mize of the Giants as the belting bellwethers who may lead their respective clubs into the October classic. DIMaggio, after a slow start, is hitting on all cylinders again, looking more and more like the DiMafif of old. In the past two weeks, the older of the DiMaggio brothers has upped his batting average more than 100 points and is now breathing hotly on the neck of teammate George McQuinn for the individual batting- leadership of the American Leo.gue. He is currently hitting .352, two points under McQuinn. Inspired by Joe's hitting spree, the Yankees have knocked off their opponents nine times in their last 12 starts to advance from second division to second place. Just as DiMagglo has sparked the Yankees, so has Mize spearheaded the Giants In their rise to the top of the National League.
