Sentimental favorites tlie country ever — outside of Detroit— the Browns It were In a tie with the Tigers with only two more games of the season to go. and this time they held the psychological advantage in the uphill struggle that has slamped them 'as one of the gamest ball clubs the eport ever has known. The pennant will be riding on every pitch in those two games and the world series opponent of the National League Champion St. Louis Cardinals will not be known until tomorrow. Only one thing was certain — that the Yanks will not he the opposing team when the world series opens here next Wednesday. They were .eliminated from their bid for their 'fourth straight pennant yesterday when Jack Kramer, one of the four Brown heroes of the day, beat them in the first game, 4 to 1. * That first game was a, must for Manager Luke Jewell's boys. Early In the game the Scoreboard showed that the Tigers had defeated the Senators In the first game of a doubleheacler. That meant that to keep their pennant hopes alive the Brownies had to win. Then they showed in the second game how they could play when the pressure really gets tough. They were leading, 1 to 0, behind Kelson Potter when the Scoreboard showed that the Senators had beaten the Tigers and Dizzy Trout. yKo sooner had that second score • been posted than the Yanks came up in the eighth inning.

"I never was less certain of catch- Ing a ball in my life," Kreevlch said afterwards, but he caught that one and It counted. But that wasn't all. In the ninth the Yanks were threatening again— hoping to duplicate what they did in Ifl22 when they beat out the Browns by one game in St. Louis' only ma.lor pennant bid—something which the Browns never have forgotten. They had a man on second, with two out, and Paid Waner, one of the most dangerous hatters the game has known, was at the plate, pinch hitting. He hit one. It looked like Ktton was a cinch to score, but he didn't, for Don Oulteridge, the pepper man j of the Browns, leaped high into tlie ' air and .speared the ball to end the game. ]t climaxed quite a day for Cut- teridgo and Kreevich. They had scored or batted in the tying and winning runs in the first game and the one and only run in the second game. Segura Meets Lewis in Men's Singles SAX FRAXCISCO. Sept. 30.

In this ancient Rhenish capital meet all tho Rhine valley and Paris-Berlin railroads and Europe's greatest inland waterway. In addition, Cologne commands rail approaches to Belgian ports. Founded in 38 B. C. by the Roman Emperor Claudius, who named it for his mother, Cologne or Koln, as the Germans call It, has had a hectic history through many wars. Occupied by the British for seven years after the World War 1 armistice, it was one of the first cities taken over by Hitler's troops when Germany reoccupied the demilitarized Rhlneland in 1930. Center of a vast industrial area containing many war industries, Cologne was a target even for World War I's tiny bomb-loads. Called Germany's most-bombed city In this war, it has been "coventrized" by hundreds of raids, culminating in 1000-plane "blockbuster" attacks.
