Tigers Cling to One Game Edge Over St. Louis Browns By JOE REICHLER Annociaied Press SportR Writer It is no longer a question of who stop the Detroit Tigers — but how can they lose? The American League leaders J-esterday made it four straight over the Boston Red Sox, 9 to 5, to cling to their one-game edge over the St. Louis Browns with only seven games left to play against the second division Philadelphia Athletics and [Washington Senators. A rousing three-run ninth Inning rally kept the Browns in the running V'tth an uphill, 3 to 2, triumph over the A's, but the New York Yankees were all but mathematically eliminated by falling before Mel Harder of Cleveland, 4 to 1. -The Qhicago White Sox extended their winning streak to six straight by sweeping a twin bill from the Senators, 9-3 and 2-0. St. Louis' champion Cardinals be- came the first National League team to win over 100 games for three successive years when they took two from the Philadelphia Phillies, 4-3 in 16 innings and 1-0 in nine frames. Whltey Kurowski's homer gave Alort Cooper his twenty-second triumph in the opfner. Ted Wicks won his seventeenth against three defeats in the finale. The Pittsburgh Pirates broke even with the New York Giants in 10-innings 3-2 after Bill A'oiselle had beaten them 5-4 for his twenty-first victory in the opener. The Chicago Cubs and Brooklyn Dodgers also divided, the Cubs winning 4-3 on Bill Nicholson's thirty-third homer, after Curt Davis racked up his tenth game for the Dodgers in the opener, 10-3. Cincinnati took two close ones from Boston 2-1 and 1-0 on good pitching by Harry Gumbert and Arnold Carter. March Field Flyers Defeat Bombers 56-7 A star-studded service team—the Fourth Air Force Fliers of March Field—set an example of powerhouse football for the west coast's two professional leagues yesterday by trampling the San Diego Bomb«Us of the Pacific Coast Pro Football league, 56-7. The Bombers, playing the game es a Tvarmup for the opening of their league season next Sunday, scored their lone tally in the final period on a pass from Steve Bagarus. former Notre Dame ace, to Chuck By Associated Press In American Pro League games a pass-grabbing, galloping halfback named Jimmy Caine scored five touchdowns as the Portland Rockets whitewashed the Oakland Hornets, 39-0, while the Los Angeles Mustangs romped to a 32-7 victory over the Los Angeles Wildcats. Bill Bryant tossed two passes which resulted in touchdowns for the Mustangs. The victory put the Mustangs in second place behind the University of Hollywood Rangers, who were idle yesterday. BRUINS TIE TROY IN FINAL SECONDS By Associated Press The crack of the timer's gun echoed in the consciousness of Pacific Coast Conference members today as a \vnrninff to bewjire University of California at Txis An- Reles' Bruins as a touchdown threat. The K.-imp-endlng gun barked amidst the frenzied cheers of BO.OCIO In Ixj.s Angeles Coliseum Saturday as Bruin Halfback Johnny Kaesch gathered in a University of. Southern California punt and \veaved 74 yards through the bewildered men of Troy for a touchdown that resulted in a 13-13 tie. Bob AVaterflcld booted the game- tieing placement to complete the drama that started with U. C. L. A.'s original final quarter touchdown on six ground plays that carried 4!) yards, with Roesch carrying over. The University of California Bears at Berkeley did not look too impressive in rolling to a .'!l-7 victory over the juvenile-powered St. Mary's College Gaels. The Bears muffed a number of touchdown opportunities but pushed over scores early and late. On the other hand, University of Washington limbered up for conference play by crushing little AVil- liamette, 71-0. Couch A. A. Stagg's College of Pacific Tigers for the second year humbled the vaunted St. Mary's Preflighters, 14-6. Ambrose Schlnd- ler, former U. S. C. all-American, sparked Pacific's first touchdown after St. Mary's Cadets had taken a fi-0 lead. Other games of the week end Included a 20-0 victory by University of Nevada over Tonopah Army Airfield at Tonopah Sunday and 27-0 win by Idaho University, South, over Poratello Marines Paturdav.

Thursday, September 28 The World-Famous Screen and Radio Artist IVIE ANDERSON DUKE ELLINGTON'S SINGING STAR and Her Original Recording Trio Coming; Here Direct from Hollywood MUSIC BAR SUPPER CLUB Continuous Entertainment Nightly from 8:30 to 1:30 1809 K Stceet-f or Best Seats Call for Reservations-Phone 8-8933 Tom Steve Strelich makes no apology in announcing that this is the greatest rematch carded in the city this year. Two favorites. Tom Garzelli and John Sonney, will take the spotlight In the main event. These toughies battled to a draw two weeks ago and neither was satisfied with the score and each Is sticking his neck out in a firm promise to cool the other for the fatal count. It looks like something's going to happen and with these threats coming from the top artists of these parts the stadium will not be sparsely settled tonight, Mr. Strelich predicts. The seini-windup will see George Dozier and Robert Rowe slug it out for four rounds, that is if Dozier doesn't carry out his threat to K. O. Rowe. To prove that he is dauntless, Rowe asked for the privilege of poking his foe in the face tonight when he learned of the threat. Pedro Balderas and Cat Coolldge are on the special event card as Cal comes back for more after fretting for weeks under the cloud of a decision in favor of Pedro. Cal wants to even out the score, although the old rival has been bowling them over lately. As good measure for the evening, six other glove boys will try their skill in four-round matches as follows: Petie Costa versus Joe Orosco; Pat Martinez versus Joe Mende-/.; Gabe Jimenez versus Rudy Reed and Phil Holmes versus Dave Blalock. Irish Squad to Meet Pitt on Saturday l!> TKI> MEIEK NKW YORK, Sept. LT). CW—Notre Dame, the country's No. 1 college foo'ball team last year, opens its 1944 campaign this week along with surli other recognized grid powerhouses as Navy. Army, Penn, Ohio State, Pemi State, Oklahoma and Dartmouth. Special interest attaches to the Notre Dame-Pitt game at Pittsburgh since the Irish are coached this year by Kd. McKeever (Krauk Leahy entered the navy last spring) and he already has pone on record as saying the South Benders will "lose a lot of games." Ki|iially of interest is the debut of Navy against North Carolina Pre- Flight at Annapolis. Many believe the Midshipmen, as strong as last year when they lost only to Notre Dame, will gain the mythical national crown this fall. The Army meets North Carolina at West Point; Penu battles Duke at Philadelphia; Ohio State tansies with Missouri at Columbus; Penn State encounters Muhlenborg at State College: Oklahoma faces a stern test at home against the Norman Navy Xoomers while Dart- month is pitted against Holy Cross at Hanover, N. II. Many other topflight games are listed ns the grid season picks up speed. In the. east Bucknell meets Cornell; Yale opens against the Coast Guard Academy; Colgate meets Rochester; Columbia battles Union and Brown takes on Tufts. The Milchlgan-Indinna game at Ann Arbor, with the Wolverines seeking their third straight, tops a midwestern slate that includes such other frays as Illinois-Great Lakes; Nebraska - Minnesota: WisconsinNorthwestern: Marriuette.Purdue and Iowa Navy-Olathe Naval.
