Tom Garzelli and John Sonney are carded to slug out four rounds in the main event, and eacli glove artist is determined to settle a draw score chalked up two weeks ago with which neither was satisfied. Garzelli avers that he is going to floor .Sonney, come hail and high water, and those close to Sonney say he has the same idea In reverse—so fans will have to see what they will .see Monday night. George Dozier says if he doesn't knock out Robert Rowe In two heats of the seml-windup he won't claim a cent, and at the same time Rowe has asked to take the irritated Mr. Dozier on to "just show him what can be done about it." Both fellows are In top shape and It looks like a keg of dynamite is about to go off when the boys climb into the ring. In the special event Pedro Balderas will battle with Cal Coolidge as Cal attempts to regain standing after he suffered a decision loss to Pedro some time ago. Other interesting battles coining up Monday night are; Petle Costa versus Joe Orosco; Pat Martinez versus Joe Mendez; Gabe, Jimenez versus Rudy Reed and Phil Holmes versus Dave Blalock, Mr. Strelich announces. Cards Prepare for World Series Games BOSTON, Sept. 22. <UR>—It was "Bring on the Btowns, Tigers, Yankees or Red Sox" for the pennant- winning St. Louis Cards of the National League today as they settled down to plan for the world series after clinching their third straight flag. There was a joyful feeling in the Cardinal camp that the team's month-long slump ended with the double victory over the Boston Braves, 6 to 4 and 6 to 6 yesterday. Manager Billy Southworth was his old congenial self and radiated good cheer and confidence. The team didn't put on any victory demonstration comparable to the "gas-house" celebrations of other Cardinal clubs, but there' was no one concealing the fact he was glad it was all over. Expected 75,000 to See Troy-Bruin LOS ANGELES, Sept. 22. OP)—One of the biggest opening day football crowds there in many years will watch U. C. L. A. and the Trojans of the University of Southern Cali- i fornia resume their rivalry tomor- I row In the Memorial Coliseum. i With more than 50,000 seats sold I now, a turnout of almost 75,000 is I anticipated. U. S. C. remains a slight favorite, mainly because of the experience and known capacity of its line. The Bruin chances seem to rest primarily on the good throwing arm of Bob Waterfield, quarterback who directed U. C. L. A. to its first Pacific Coast Conference title in 1942.

Luke Sewcll's "hungry" castoffs, stumbling since mfd-August and berated by friend and foe for blowing a comfortable lead, were only a half Kiime behind the leading Detroit Tigers today on another comeback surge. When the New Yorkers snapped a five-game losing streak by dumping Detroit, 5-4, In a 10-inning series finale yesterday, their motive was strictly selfish. By taking their onlv game of the set from the Tigers, the defending champs stuck In the race three lengths back with hopes of shortening the gap in Cleveland while the hardhitting Boston Red Sox visit Detroit. Connie Mack was again In the spotlight aa he led his Athletics Into Sportsman's Park for a week-end scries. The Philadelphia club belted New York out of first place last week on three straight defeats and Mr. Baseball never did play favorites. The fierce Inter-club feud between St. Louis and Washington reacted to the Browns advantage, raising them to a fighting pitch climaxed by the battle between Tom Turner of St. Louis and Roberto Ortiz of Washington before last night's game. Ortiz went to a hospital for hand X-rays but Turner was unhurt and the "inspired" Sewellmen slugged out 15 hits for a 9-4 edge. Prank Crosetti's tenth Inning double gave Reliefer Bill Zuber of the Yanks the nod over Hal Newhouser, doing a turn as a Tiger fireman. Cleveland trimmed Boston, 5-2 despite 11 Sox hits. St. Louis clinched the National League flag by trimming Boston, 5-4 and 6-5 with both wins going to Re- liefer Harry Brecheen. Pittsburgh tightened its grip on second place by walloping Brooklyn twice, 10-4 and 14-6, Cincinnati kept pace by downing the Phils, 5-3 and 8-4 and Chicago blasted New York's fourth place aspirations with a double dose of trouble, 11-8 and 6-4. THE TIGERS' MANAGER, Steve O'Neil, looks slightly on the happy side as his Detroit team stays on top In the American League pennant race. The Tigers won two out of three games in their series with the New York Yankees. FOOTBALL COACH • Annwer lo Prrvloni Puzzle HORIZONTAL 1,5 Pictured football star, Lt.
