LOUIS, Oct. in. (UP)—The World Series went down in the record books today as a triumph for Hilly Southworth and the St. Louis Cardinals, but it should credit an assist to the second combination of the .St. Louis Browns. The men of .Manager LnUe Sewell failed to reach the top in their rags- to-riehes baseball climb because one of the major weapons in their last ditch drive to their first American League pennant failed them when ,1116 blue chips were down. Those weapons, reading from left to right, were the clutch hitting of Ve'-Moii Stephens and the fielding ot Don Gutteridge, their chatterbox second baseman. In a manner of speaking, they struck out yesterday when they could have come up with the play which would have saved the ball game and the world championsip hopes of the Browns. The selling was the fourth inning j with a $J1UU differential riding on! every piny. And the Browns, who had come up off the floor to nose out. Detroit Tigers by one game in j the closest race the American ' League ever has known, failed to j come through with the play that counted. Southwurth's speedy Kedblrds, who gave him his second title in three National League pennant successes, look advantage of the fielding miscue lo beat the Browns out ot their chances yt making a Cinderella finish to their most successful season. The J!)44 edition of the American League's hilless wonders were sailing along under a 1-to-U lead in the sixth game of Ihe first intra-eity series in st. Loui.s history when Stephens and Gutleridge let them down In the clutch. Jt was a hard way for the Browns to bow out because they had won their way into the series the tough way—coming from behind. But when Stpehens and (Julteridge messed up a play on George Kurowskis grounder it was more than Ihe stouthearted right-handed pitching of the Browns could lake. Nelson I'olter, the Browns' leading winner, had been given a one- run lead on Chet Laab's triple and George McQuinn's single in the second inning, when he came into the fourth and started that inning out by gelling Stan Alusial on a fly ball to center field. Then, although it has been around for a long time, he couldn't find the plate when he pitched to Catcher Walker Cooper ot the Cardinals. He threw four pitches and all of them failed to hit the rubber so ihe Cardinal receiver trolled down to first. Kay Sanders, who turned in the most consistent hilling for the National League titlcholders, came through with a. single that sent Cooper lo third. That set the stage i for the play that meant the ball game. Kurowskl, more or less of a series bust, stepped to the plate and sent i a. grounder down to Stephens. The , Brownie shortstop, who led the i American League in runs batted in, j had two choices—for Cooper at the plate and keep the lying run from scoring or lo shoot for a double play to retire the side. He chose the latter, and it turned out to lie a bad decision—at least in the judgment of the official scorers. He threw the ball lo second base in an attempt to force Sanders and start the twin killing. The'idea was good—but the execution was faulty. Stephens fielded the grounder cleanly and threw to second base. The scorers decided his throw was wide and drew Gutteridgc off the bag, bin a lol of others thought that Gutleridge, in bis haste to complete the double play, rook ills foot oft the bag before he got the ball. But Stephens got the error and it led to two unearned Cardinal runs and that proved to be Hie difference —just like two unearned tallies in the second game kept the Cardinals in the running and enabled them to win out in 11 innings, !! to L'. So in Ihe final analysis it. added tip to this—the Browns lost the series on their fielding. Thi' failure to complete! a double play permitted the tying run to come home—the failure to get even one man out led lo the winning and extra tallies. For Kmil Verban and Southpaw Max Lanier followed with singles that scored two runs. Kven the attempt for the. double play would not have been fatal had they gotten one man. For there was one out then and after Stephens bobblr.d, ilarty Marion fouled out for what should have been the final out of the inning. But it was only the second and that's when Verbal! and Lanier came in. It was I'otter in the final reckoning who gave in, for the hits of Yer- ban and Lanier were clean ones in any man's hall park, but he .should never had to face those men in that frame. Those hits made it 3 to 1 and that was one more than the Cardinals needed. Lanier allowed only three hits in the five and one-third innings he worked ami when lie did falter Mookie Ted U'ilks came in and saved the day.

Hollypark Opening Becomes Question lly fiKXK KHIKDMAX t'nil'il P!---^ Sfal't C'H i-v.-i'OM'knt LOS A.XCKLKS. Oct. in—South- pin California, has had its share of three ring sports circuses, but one of the best looms in the next two weeks as the pi ohlcni of hoi so racing becomes more and more complex. Hollywood Park is, all set. to open November 1. The racing commission granted dates and okayed the Hollywofl Turf ('Inlj's charity offer- ins. Hollywood I'ark has even announced hiuhliglns of its seasonal program. Kveu the war manpower commission approved the Hollywood opening, declaring that tiaek workers would be rei ruitcd fiom oilier tracks, thus not interfering with war ]>roduc-tion. Kill the citixen's manpower commission reared its head and announced it intended to prevent the track opening because the Inglewooii area, had a shortage of Ju.tinu war workers. This group of public spirited citizens, serving without compensation, has otten guided war agencies and at one time the state hnrse racing commission said it would not give any racing dates without the approval of the commission. This time the citixen's manpower commission was apparently bypassed. So the commission met. yesterday to take up action. Its action: A decision to make no recommendation on the reopening of Hollywood Park for another week pending the report of a subcommittee which was to make another "thorough survey" of manpower conditions—all this alter three hours of debate in r> closed session. SONNEY DOWNS COOLIDGE IN FAST MAIN EVENT AT STRELICH ARENA By MARVIN John Sonney, bard-punching boy \ from Muioe, added another win to I his collection when he defeated Cal ! ! Coolidge in a four-round decision | i bout, last night in the main event at \ | Strelich Stadium. I I The first round was fairly even. . | with Sonney landing the hardest blows to Coolidge's chin. It looked • 'as though Sonne\ was trying for a ; K. o. blow from the first and if his, opponent hadn't been fast enough ; one of his punches miuht have ended : it all. • In the seeiind round it was Sonney.; all the way. This time he was i finite determined to land one of his ' , haymakers (,, the chin of Coolidge. • 'but. still Coiilidgc was just a little 1 too f|iiick, which stopped Sonney's ] : hard rights from doing any considerable damage. Coolidge. being mostly on the dp- I fensive in the first two rounds, | answered the bell for the third quite i differently. AVhen Sonney threw | his swift punches. C'oolidge stuck i out liis left, which, in turn, caught Sonney under the eye. Then Cal j Coolidge went a step farther on the I offensive and the boys began to'slng j it oil\ in the center of the ring. In ! the fourth round Coolidge tried i using the same tactics, In order to I change the course of the bout from ! being all Sonney. but Sonney's two- round edge awarded him the referee's final decision. The semi-windup bout saw Pedro ! Ralderas. from Bakersfield. and the | .leffries f'.arn boy, I'lanny Marline/, j slug it out until F.akleras came out ; on top with the referee's decision.! In the first round it seemed ns FERGUSON though the boys were matched fairlv evenly, but the second round proved differently when Balderas cut loose with lefts and rights that drove his opponent to the corner, seeking protection by placing his gioves over his face. Martinez, with a reserve supply of energy, came back fast .in the third and final round but his comeback attempt was in \ain because Balderaa out-pointed him all through the bout. .hie .\lmioz won the feature event from Calvin Morrison who was tin- able to answer the bell starting the, third round. Morrison recently received a medical discharge from tho I". S. M. C. Ho was engaged in seven beachhead landing.-) In the south Pacific. During the intermission the AVar Chest drive was started off on the right foot by Strelleh's fans. Steve Streli. h made an urgent call for sporting fans to give and to generously for a cause that was helping to win the war. The fans donations poured into the "ing, then Strelich saiii, "For $50 I'll wrestle anyone." Two eager gentlemen who were trying to outbid each other by their donations finally decided. from Steve's suggestion, that it would be better if fiey could settle the question by wrestling each other which would rause the loser to donate an extra ?50 to the AVar Chest drive. With Sieve as i ''eree the two men started the struggle, and the fans were cheering then on. They didn't seem to like the referee's methods and both men turned on him. Steve called the match a draw and both gentlemen donated $."0.
