(UP>— What radio spellbinder Dizzy Ucan no doubtcdly" will describe as the fifth crooshicnl series of the year" opens tonight between the Carrts and Dodgers and once a&ain It Is the same old story—Brooklyn Is hi first place.and St. Louis is trying to get there. In each of their four previous meetings tills year, the Dodgers have managed to hold the lead, much to the consternation of the expert* who have been wrong on two counts. First, they predicted Brooklyn's collapse; second they insisted the Canllfials were a team with enough potential power to give even 'the Red Sox a ride for their money. In the first Card-Dodger encounter at Brooklyn in May, St. IjOUis 'came In to win two In row and liquidate a two-Ha lead held by the Dodgers. At St. Louis in June, the Dodgers had three-game lead, but St. Louis won two out'of three to cut It to two. At Brooklyn, later In June, the Dodgers tal by only 1 1-2 Rallies, but this time they won two out of three to fatten thp.t margin to 2 1-2. Then came the dramatic series two weeks ago at St. Louts when the Dodgers saw 4 1-2 game lead all but wiped out as the Cards took four straight. Tills time Brooklyn boasts 2 1-2 game lead, which mentis the Cards must sweep the three game first lesson being given Saturday 5 p.m. at the city Pool.

Dodger boss Leo Durocher. who lins been contemptuous of the Cardinals, sale! he saw no more reason to think they arc ready now to bid for the lead than they were when they first met the Dodgers.
