Everybody enjoys its life, sparkle and refreshment. Plan to have frosty bottles of "Coke" ice-cold and ready to drink. When you shop, remem- ber to ask for Coca-Cola. Everywhere, Coca-Cola stands for the pause that refreshes,—has become a high-sign of hospitality in the American home.

SEALS DOWN ANGELS, 4-2 JO TAKE GOVERNOR'S CUP PLAYOFF SERIES T/iS AXOKLrJ.S. Oct. 4. (At—For tli" sixth time in as many tries, Los Anseles lost the governor's playoff .series amoiiK first division teams of the Pacific Coast. League. Lefty O'Doul's sjiin Francisco Seals beat them at AVrigley Field last night. 4 to 2, on what perhaps was the wierdest play of tho entire year in all baseball. Los Angeles recently won the pennant for the second year in a row and San Francisco now has taken tho playoff twice running. The Seals picked up $5000 in prix.c money for their accomplishment, the Angels $J500 to go with the SUT.OO they got for winning the pennant. Portland and Oakland, eliminated in the playoffs, got SllinO '•ach. Last night's seventh game of the final playoff series, played before 13.385 spectators, wa • decided in the fifth inning. Here's what happened: llcinie Steinhacher and Gus Suhr of San Francisco led off with singles. Ben Ciuintini then bunted to advance the runners. Los Angeles Pitcher Pancho Cornelias pounded on the hall, -made a perfect throw to third base for what should have been an easy force out. Hut—Stan Gray, In covering the base, tripped, fell, and the ball went bounding into the far reaches of left field. Steinbacher scored. Suhr scored. Kven Guintinl, who bunted, crossed the plate. Yet his bunt way to the pitcher's didn't go mound. The Angi'ls tried hard to save the game in the ninth. They loaded the bases with one out. Then Stan Gray strode to the plate. Here was a chance to ledeem himself. He let a third strike go by. iUanager Bill Sweeney charged onto the field, argued with Umpire Bill Doran, and was chased to the clubhouse. The veteran Johnny Moore batted for Catcher Billy Sarni and lifted a long, high foul that P-ighU'ielder Logan Hooper snared. It could he. if excuses were needed, that Los Angeles lost last night's game weeks ago when they disposed of Third Baseman Charlie English to Oakland. Gray, a utility player, was tilling in at third for Johnny Ostrowski. who was filling in for Ceee Garriott, who was called into the army. Garriott hud been voted Los Angeles' most valuable player. English is a third baseman by trade and when the Angels let him go they put Ostrowski, an outfielder, in his place, and still won the pennant by 12 games. The Heals won the first three playoff games in San Francisco, lost the next three here, and took the clincher on Ray Harrell's good pitching, which, up to the ninth, had held the champions to three hits, two of them homers by Rip Russell and Ostrowski. Boxer Hits Canvas Eight Hard Times AXGELKS, Oct. 4. UP)— Larry Lovett, IS^, Swuinsboro, Ga., hit the canvas eight times and finally lost by a technical knockout last night to Elmer Kay, 11)9. of Tampa, Fla. The fight was scheduled for 1U rounds. Lovett succumbed mainly to rights to the chin, offering only an occasional jab to offstand Kay's rushes. U. S. C. Receives Drill on Tackling Dummy LOS AXGLLKS, Oct. 4.— The U. S.

Cal Lineman Picked as Week's Best By TKI) MEIKR •' NK\v Y<>I;K, Oct. •». (/P)—Roper Harding, ion-pound center for the rnlversily of California, was selected today as the outstanding col- le.u-o Inotball lineman of the week in the first Associated Press lineman poll of the grid season.. Harding, a L'I-year-old civilian student from Walnut Creek, Calif., playing his second year on the varsity, WHS the big reason why underdog California upset U. C. L. A., 6-0. in the first period he broke and blocked an attempted punt, scooped up the hull and raced 20 yards for the only touchdown. In I ho third period he broke up 4. U. C. U A. threat by Intercepting a PMSS on his own 26-yard line. Nick Collias, an 1K-year-old fresh, man chatterbox guard at Wisconsin, was second choice of linemen Whose feats usually are overlooked. Collias, a Chicago lad, twice Kirmshert through to throw Northwestern hall carriers for losses in the fourth period, protecting Wisconsin's slim 7-ti lead. Noteworthy feats -were turned in by Joe Dyer, of Southern Methodist, an end, who blocked two punt/in a row against North Texas Aggies, and by John Cooke, Texas Christian tackle, who intercepted a pass and ran .'JO yards for a touchdown. It is seldom a tackle intercepts an aerial, let alone score a six-pointer.

Although Duke lost, Kerns stopped every Perm play directed at him and got down the field fast on punts, nailing tho receiver in his tracks several times.
