Jones said thero would Ue "no first string" eleven, but that two teams would function as separate units. In one backfleld he used Davie Davis at quarterback, jimmy Sutherland and Homer Beatty at half, and Ford Lynch at fullback. In Uie other outfit Ambrose Schln- dler took over tho signals, with Coye Dunn and Lytnan Russell at halfback and Dick Berryman at fullback. Jones was careful not to call either combination the "first string." .».«.

Wine of Success May Be Too Much for Club in Last Drive By LESLIE A VERY fVnttrd fret* Ijermrd Wire) TVfKW YORK, Sept. 11.—The dues- tion of whether the New York CHants can stand prosperity Is up for settlement today ns tho National League leaders open their major bid for the championship in a four-day stretch in which their challengers, the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cards, will demand satisfaction five times. Having quaffed frequently the wine of success since their mid-July drlvo to the fore, the Giants have tasted even more deeply since ousting tho Cards from the leadership two weeks ago. Now thero is a question whether they have partaken too frequently and too deeply. Tho answers will bo known after they engage the Cubs today and tomorrow and the Cards In a double header Sunday and a single, on Monday. If the Giants can withstand this challenge and maintain their three and one-half game margin over St. Louis, they should be In a position to smash their way to the pennant, although they still havo' five games with tho Brooklyn Dodgers, anil nothing gives tho Flatbushers rnoro pleasure than to knock tho Manhattan lies out of a race toward the end of the season. Five Crucial Games Tho coming five games between the three flag contenders is fraught with possibilities. The Giants can wind up no worse than a nocond place tie with the Cubs—a game and a half behind the Cardinals, and that is conditional upon their loss of all five games, ' which does not seem probable with Manager Bill Terry'M great scrowballer, Carl Hubbell, at his top form of tho season. Hubbell is scheduled to start against Chicago today, and if Terry's other hurlern arc battered about too much Saturday and Sunday, the lanky southpaw may draw the Monday assignment. If Hubbell wins today, and tho Giants lose tho other four while the Cards win their next five, they will still be only 11 half game out of the leadership and tho race will' develop Into another hot three-club fight that may last down to the final day of tho season. Drop Game The Giants dropped a full game to St. Louis and Chicago yesterday, when they were halted. 7 to !, by tho Cincinnati Reds, while the Cards wore whipping Boston, 3 to 2, and tho Cubs we TO triumphing over Philadelphia by the. saino margin. Tho Heven hit pitching of Paul Derringer stopped tho Giants. A double boner by Gone Moore permitted the Cards to score twice, in tho ninth and win. And Stan Hack's home run in tho eighth gave the Cubs their winning margin. Pittsburgh bludgeoned out a,n 11-0 win ovor Brooklyn. Trosky'u Tliirty-sovenlli Hdl Trosky's thirty-seventh homer of tho year came In (he ninth with a mate aboard to glvo tho Cle\eland Indlaiifi a 6-4 decision over the New York Yankees, American League pennant winners. Tommy Bridges' five-lilt pitching enabled the Detroit Tigers to best tho Washington Senators, 5 to 2. The Philadelphia Athletics beat the St. Louis Browns, 12-7, in tho flrwt game of u double header, and tho eecoud was ended by darkness in a 4-4 deadlock at tho end of the ninth.
