Tho White Sox yesterday obliterated tho Tigers' lost mathematical possibility of tying the Yanks when tho defeated the Bengals. 7 to 5, which broke the deadlock for second placo In tho only game played. The possibility of a "nickel \yorld series," so-called because the subway fare to either the Polo Grounds or Yankee Stadium is 5 cents, depends upon the New York Giants' ability to stand off the invasions of the St. Louis Cardinals and tho Chicago Cubs this week end. The Giants haVo five games to play with those two clubs, both noted for "last ditch" drives, and their flve-gamo lead could be wiped out in those contests. Fancy Tailspiu It was only two years ago that the Giants held a 7-gamo load at this stage of the season and blew It In one of the fanciest tallsplns ever recorded, while tho Cards rushed on to the pennant and tho world championship. Last year It was the Cubs' 21-game winning streak that took all tho wind out of tho Giants' sails. Two factors, however, aro In favor of tho New Yorkers. Manager B1M Terry has had bitter ex perl- onco In that double doso of slumps and should know best how to remedy It. Also, neither of tho challengers has shown tho least dlspo- sitlqn to stage a whlrwlnd finish. Tho Cards' one-man pitching staff— Dizzy Dean—has Jost Its last two starts, and the Cubs' superior mid- season twirling has bogged down unbelievably. Lust Homo Stand The Giants opened their last home stand against tho westerners today, having a two-game series with the Reds, two with the Cubs and three with the Cards, which likely will tell the story of the 1936 National League pennant race. Tho schedule favors the Giants, who have 13 of their remaining 21 games at the Polo Grounds, whilo both the Cards and Cubs spend tho majority of their remaining time on the road. The two challengers also have R!X gnmnn left to play each other, which probably will result in a cut-throat competition that will nllow the Giants to coast to the pennant. San Diego Takes • Over Coast Lead (t'niled Press Leased Wire) San Dingo was undisputed leader of tho league today. Tho Portly nd BcavcrH wore knocked out of a Uo for flrnt plnco by tlio Seattle IndlanH in tho only gamo played yesterday and as a result tho Puclrcn became the now pace setters. Seattle, occupying third place, trimmed Portland 3 to 2 in a free- hittmg ffumo. Barrett and L-lska each gave 12 hits, but Barrett stopped the scoring In the fifth and Liska didn't apply the brakes until the Blxth, when tho Indians scored tho winning run. ^Portland's defeat broke the deadlock and left San Diego in tho driver*8 scat in the league as the S5-y^v:^^^4 P • • K L • _ _ _ I _ _ "^ * 1^ iv:-^;-:v;-K-X'V'^i : x ; v~»iV>:w>*o>:':->»:v-*.!'»:',' ••>: vX$.,-. iV * ±*\ ""^v»L>'*w ACE OF GIANT PITCHERS i n Defeat College Players by Score of 12-2 in New York Bur- Kan- Between matches in the national single championships at Forest Hills, Jj.

Texas, Sept. 9.—A heated Internal row flared in tho ranks of the Amateur Athletic Union today with J. H. Raffcrty, head of tho Gulf Association of the A. A. U., threatening legal action against Avery Bnindage, national president. Kafferty charged Brundage was attempting to transfer the national A. A.

The Gulf Association chief said i Brundage's action was "unprecedented" and ace.uHed tho latter of "underhanded" means. "We will go to the courts for a restraining order against tho transfer." Kafferty nald. Kafferty uald he had received u letter signed by Daniel J. Ferris, New York, secretary-treasurer of the National A. A.

P.)— Brice Morris, Fresno pilot, crashed off the south turn and tore down 25 feet of fence, but he escaped Herlous injury as Bill Betteridgo roared out to win the 4(Map feature of tho Atlantic Speedway Midget program last night. i Morris finally landed a few feet from the grandstand after his sensational crack-up. The time of Betteridge's victory was 11 minutes 3^.G seconds. Bob "Waro was second, Johnny Kelrn third and Mutt D'Armore fourth. In tho Helmet .dash, Betteridgo also nosed out AVare over the three- lap distance In 50.7 seconds. Auto Speed Mark Broken for Hour (Vnited Prcts Lcated Wire) r BONNEVILL13 SALT FLATS, Utah, Sept. 9.—John Cobb of England smashed tho world's one-hour automobile speed record today in tn unheralded run on the BonnevlHo salt flats. Tho jovial, round-faced Londoner flashed his trim Napler-Hallton racing car around a 12-inllc oval on tho wide salt beds at an average speed of 1C7.690 ;mUes an hour, breaking tho former mark of 162.53, established early In July by his countryman, Captain Oeorgo E. T. JCyston, also of London. Hy PAUL MICKKL.SON AuocUted Treii Sporta Writer YORK, Sept. fl.—Dab nott, former pride of the aas prairies, and big Ed Danowski, who used to carry tho mull for Ford ham, havo taken care of the college-professional football argument for 1936. With their Now York Giant mates opening the door for them, the two flashy baclttleld hands applied the clincher to the pro side of the argument before 30.660 fans at the Polo grounds last night by defeating tho College All-Stars. 12 to 2, the largest margin of triumph since the College- Pro series started tWo years ago. As their All-Star rivals fumbled away precious chances and outsmarted themselves with costly maneuvers, Oanowski twtco threw unerring passes to Burnett for tho winning touchdowns. The All-Stars, favored because of their seven-all tie against the Detroit Lions, 1935 National League champions, at Chicago lawt week, spent most of their time In Giant; territory. They easily outplayed the professionals but fumbles, mental! lapses and a superior Ulan I line' spelled defeat. | Seor« Safety ; Instead of the four or five touch- \ downs they might have scored they' had to be content with a second j period safety, tallied when Wayne \ Mlllner. former Notre Dame end, blocked Tony Sarausky's punt, tho ball caroming through tho end j zone. j Furious and Fruitless j So furious and yet fruitless wns the All-Star attack that on separate sallies they reached tho Giants' ST.. 25, 23, 18, 13. 8 and even 3-yurd llnea without pushing tho ball over. Tlie big chance offered when Millner blocked and recovered Danow- skl'fl punt on tho Ulatit 20 in the third period.
