AMERICAN LEAGUE RESUMES PLAY AFTER FOUR-DAY STANDSTILL ST. LOUIS BROWNS OPEN AT HOME AGAINST CHICAGO WHITE SOX IN FIRST GAME B.V PKRKIXS SPORTS taiiforman NEW YORK, Sept. 1.'.—The Amcr- j lean League "fi>ur-i ins ciivus" was ; scheduled to resume performances i again today after n four-diiy layoff I brought about l>y the whimsy of i schedule makers mid early autuinriiil rainfall. i There was plenty of debate about which team benefited most by I be: Btrctcb of lowfiiiR, but most WOPS went to the M. Louis Browns, who were weary ami stale when they ended their vend eampateninB for : the year nt Chicago by splitting a , doiib'leboadcr last Sunday. , The Browns, who open at home against the White Sox tonight have only one pitcher, Nelson Potter, who has been able to win more than one frame in the past month and such weary campaigners as Sip Jukucki, Jack Kramer, Bob Muncrief and Denny Galehouse are almost sure to allow some improvement after their rest. The same condition probably exists wilh the Detroit Tipers, who have been forced to depend largely upon their two bis: winners, 1'aul (Dizzy) Trout and Hal N'ewhouser. However, with them, the rest was strictly temporary, since they have to fiRure working at least every three or foul- days and relieving: some of the time on'their "off-days." The Tigers play two nt Cleveland tonight. Manager Joe McCarthy made no secret of the fact that he was chafing over the long delay. The Yanks had a game at Philadelphia rained out twice and will play it Sunday as part of a doubleheader at Yankee Stadium—which McCarthy considers no advantage because of the tendency for teams to split twin bills. He reasons that the team was "red- hot" and tliat a delay at such a time I,eaRue (iianis tic; with was anything but helpful. The Yanks i remain idle until tomorrow. : The Boston lied Sox, a fairly ; strong road club, have completed their campaign at home and begin > their final trip at Washington to- : night with the team in good shape, j although they must bank heavily upon their two rookie pitcher. 1 *, Ilex Cecil and Clem Drelsewerd.
