By IJ58LIB AVKRY (United rreti heated Wire) \TBW YORK, Sept. 2G.—The Now X1 York Giants have won the Na- lonal Loagno pennant, but they refuse positively, to gel oxcitod about t. "It was Just another ball game," said Terry, half-heartodly forcing a smile, after the O Ian IB had just won a blttor 10-Ititilug struggle 'rom the IioHlon BOOR to clinch tho championship, Terry's attitude was lust about as choory as that of any if his players. They woro happy but they woro weary. They had come from tho second division to tho flag slnoo mid-July. Tho sccno was so different from Lhoflo of 193B when tho Ht. Louis CardlnalH nonod out tho Giants for tho pennant on tho lout day of tho «nanon, and when tho Cubs triumphed with a 21-game winning Htroak, that, tho reporters couldn't unaerMtand It. "Hull, this Is a morguo," muttered ono, us ho attempted to elicit Homo bombastic quoton of what tho C.I Ian t a would do to tho Yankees In the coming sorlos. Jf tho Giants have tho leant hopes of diiHtlng the McCarthy men off, they uro kce.plng it a dark nocrot. At loaKt Mi'inphla Bill was not dls- pli'aw.-d at getting tho campaign over. Ho «alU "Thanks, old man," to Hal Schumacher, who pitched and butted the Olantu to their 2 to 1 victory, Besides limiting tho Hoes to novon hits, Schumacher drove in the wlnnlnjf run with a sharp single In the tenth.

Dlswsy Dean struck out nlno and doled out four hits In tho finnln, his twenty-fourth triumph of tho year. CubB Fall Tho Chicago Cubs foil 2'/i games behind the Cards • as they woro blanked, 4 to 0, by the Pittsburgh Pirates, who now trail thft Cubs by only ono game and have a chance to boat them out of third place. The Philadelphia PhlUlen whipped tho Brooklyn Dodgers * to 2 In the 13- first game of a double header, then bowed by tho same count In the finale. In tho only game played In the American league, tho Philadelphia Athletics downed the Now York Yankees, 4 to 3.

To Ted Penslnger probably goes the acclaim for shooting the largest deer knocked down this Reason in Kern county.

Opening Jaysee Gridiron r '• Conflict Will Be in South W ITH UNKNOWN . lngre|ilentB» Coach Jack Frost hopes to compound & depth charge to 'ex-' plode under the Long Beach Vlk- Ing craft today. The engagement is slated to start this evening at LounabeiYy. Field In Long Beach. For the first time in. 1936, tho Maroon and White will face the flre test. After today, Coach Frost and his staff of Don Robesky and John Clymer will be able to toll a great deal more what may bo expected of the coming Renegade season. Coach Harry Macon of Long Beach is also in something of a quandary with a mystery team on hit) hands. Ho lost two great mainstays of last season in Buck Arnold, center and Rod Speetzen, end. Among his candidates, Bob Stevens, midget back, looms as a strong contender for honors today. He totes the ball most of the time and can throw a mean pass. Three mid- western importations, Don Johannsen and Leon Wheeler of Iowa, and Paul Paramore of Michigan, will attempt to show their stuff today. Dannells, an end from Wilson high and Bonsman, all-coast league guard • from Los Angeles Polytechnic high, have seen lots of action in Coach Macon's scrimmage sessions. White, veteran end, and Pohlad, also a flanker, should bolster the • flank situation. The star of the team, Al Maloney, a loose-hipped half-back and veteran of many a Viking battle, has been hold in tho background for tho past few daya but is expected to get plenty of timo in tho Renegade tilt. First Game In 1930 Bakersfield Jayseo always presents a major football threat to tho Norsemen and have a fine roputa- tlon to uphold today. Tho first tlnie the two elevens met was in 1930 when tho game was deadlocked in a. scoreless tie. The Black and White toam of Long Beach took a 25 to 13 drubbing in 1933 and lost a 38 to 6 battle In 1934. This last gamo was a bitter^ ono, as local fans may remember. Renegade Lineup Frost is expected to star tho following lineup today: Robesky, center; Mohr, left guard; Hackett, right guard; Sheldon, right tackle; Wayno Fllkel, left tackle; Bill Monroe, right end; Barbosa, loft end; Vornon Older- ahiyw, center: Frankel, left half; JOB .Gmson, right half; Trout, fullback.
