Portland, idle last night as were the .I'arifie (.,'oast League's three oi her cluhs. moved into a second place tie with the Seals. Southpaw Kay 1'iini of the Angels was credited with his sixteenth win of the season, as Los Angeles collected 11 hits from four I lolly wood moundsmen, starling with Cy Ulan- ton, who was blamed for the loss. The Stars, however, outhit the Angels, gaining U from Prim and CIcorge Cornelias, who went to the showers in the eighth. The lead in the wild and woolly San Francisco - Oakland contest changed hall' a dozen times as the Seals made five errors to Oakland's three. Kill Werle was charged witli the loss.

Sweden will bar its fruiitiors to war criminals and ret urn to their own countries for justice, any who "slip through." Ciiistav Moeller. minister of social affairs, declared in a speech last night. "Onr policy so far has been to keep our frontiers open for refugees" said iVloeller "hut it should not. he concluded that Sweden will be open, or is prepared to grant asylum, to those who by their actions have defied the conscience of the civilized world or betrayed their own country." With the throat of sudden and a terribly final doom always hanging over their heads, the Delano Tigers tonight at 8:L'(), or thereabouts, will meet the Hakersfield Cubs in the second and what can conceivably be the final game of this county's own base-bull "world series." Tonight, at Sam Lynn Park, the Delano Tigers will find out—possibly as early as 10;.'JO, certainly nut later than Ii —if they are still in a contesting position for the 194-1 baseball championship of Kern county—or if they are just an "also ran." They'll find out. with terrible certainty, if they still have another of their nine lives to live—or if they had alrnady squandered eight of them before they started the contest. Just a week ago tonight the Tigers and the Cubs met in the first of this t\vo-oui-of-three "world series." At the end of a. torrid nine innings the Tigers, despite a furious four-run rally in the ninth inning, were on the front end of an 8-to-6 score, with one game of the series behind them and faced with the necessity of win- l*rrvioii» I'uzxle PUBLIC OFFICIAL HORIZONTAL , 1 Pictured U S.'". x '^assistant sec- v retary of Navy 2 ;for air. 11 Fish eggs 12 Verbal 13 Before 14 Novel 16 Be indebted 18 Age 21 Like 22 Us 23 Cost, iosur-) a nee and freight (ab ) 26 Stinging insects 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 iO 15 17 18 1 9 28 Musical study 20 30 Follow/ 31 Fear 32 Foolish -, persons 36 Wall unit 40 Get up 41 Small particles 42 Telegraph (ab) 43 Sodium (symbol) 45 Zirconium (symbol) 46 Nevertheless 47 Lieutenants (ab) 48 General Eisenhower's nickname 60 Exist 52 Black 55 Pedal digit 58 He is in charge- of 23 24 VERTICAL Measure of j area International language Five and five Cuts grass Chaldean city, South Amer-' ica <ab > Glisten Golf device Erbium (symbol) Compass point Simplicity s Unwanted plant Female sheep Sped Donkey Stage signal Feminine PRASED name 2.S Provided food 27 Tugs 29 Provide medical care 42 Obese 33 Native metal 34 Lubricant 35 Transmitted 36 Recreation area 37 Blow on the ' head c 38 Australian bird 39 Landing ship tank (ab.) 44 On the ocean 45 Metal 47 Bulgarian coin 49 Greek letter. 50 Any 51 Egyptian sun god/ 53 Bismuth\ ' (symbol)* 54 Either 56 Concerning \ 57 And (Latin) ning tonight's £;mie or losing the series ami the chnmpiunship which ridos with the winner. Only it' tliL- Tigers win will the series go into the third same. And to prevent *iny conniving, those who are in char*;*-; have already publicly umiounred that tho rontHsting teams can share in the proceeds of only Ihe first twn games. In other words, if the Tigers win tonight, both teams will he playing in that, third game simply for ihe love of i he sport— of which all mrmhers in both squads have plenty. The Timers, dub tonight, will probably field about the same nine that showed Mich valient spirit last AVednesday t veiling, with either Oregory, Uerdivanis or K easier—or maybe all Uiret—Betting tho pitching call. CnpP will probably do the receiving. The rest of the lineup which was ahlne to slap out 10 safe hits off the redoubtable Demaree in * the first game, will probably be unchanged. The. Cubs, gunning for their second win and a quick and successful end to the series, will shoot left- handed Jim Brown at Delano as the starting pitcher, with Demaree moving over to play first base. Jack Brown is definitely slated to catch, with Uceago on second, Jones at short and MeOaniels at third. 1'arker, Walker and Wright will be patrolling the outfield. Tonight's game appears to be fully the equal of last week's torrid opener, with maybe a few curlicues thrown in for good measure. The Tigers are apt to offer the hard-hitting Cubs nothing but curves to bite at. since they have two excellent curve ball artists in Gregory and Derdivanis. Lefty Jim Brown. extremely wicked when he's right, may lose his usual good control or those right- handed swingers of the Tigers may find his offside slants to their liking. Liceago, a natural third baseman, may falter at second and Jones, one of the best outfielders in the league, may, in spite of his speed, fail at short. There are a lot of "ifs" in tonight's ball game. The only positive thing is —IF the Delano Tigers lose, the world series is over and the Cubs have the championship. It should be mighty interesting to watch. Nearly two do/en first r!ass inier- soi.:tidiia! Barnes are schoduled for eastern lorriiory, \\ ith alumt 1 ."» in l ho s«m i h.
