Yankee Forces 3 ' Given Reviews ^Vj i. frowv P«0e Match Brains With • L rawn in Meeting the Yankees By ALAN GOULD (Associated Preit Leaded Wire) TVTBW YORK, Sept. 26.— Tho more *•* or less nerve-wracking approach of the New York Giants to the world series with the neighboring Yankees finds the dramatic outlook somewhat reminiscent of the last tbree baseball wara fought out on opposite banks of the Harlem river In 1923. Then, as now. in a manner of speaking it was "brains versus brawn." In other words, the record- smashing power In Yankee bats will bo pitted against the resources of the best defensive club In big league baseball. 4 Instead of the battle of wits between the most famous of all master minds, John Joseph McGraw, and the greatest of all sluggers, Babe Ruth, this year's affray finds h. pupil of tho old master, William Harol$ Terry, devising strategy to meet the slugging ensemble led by larruping Lou Gehrig, the new home run king. Terry and his Infield mate, Travis Calvin Jackson, were just two young fellows being ripened for regular duty when the last "subway series" •was played, The complete shift In regular playing casts since thgse glamorous •days has not been accompanied, however, by much alteration In rival methods. The Yankees, with Joe McCarthy directing maneuvers from tho bench as the late Miller Huggins did, still operate on the theory that a home run is the best strategy. They have broken all records for clr- "cult clouting this year with Gehrig setting the pace for a new batting order that swings from the heels, from top to bottom. Aim for "Breaks" The Giants, possessing a brand of power that fades somewhat by comparison, still play "McGraw baseball." They aim for tho breaks, feature a tight defense, and rely upon the resources of a pitching staff headed by the great Carl Hubbell. * It remains to bo seen whether one Rrcat moundsman can carry the Giants to victory In the world series, Except for the veteran knuckle- bailer, Freddy Fitzsimmons. the National leaguers have no other pitcher who now appears capable of giving the celebrated exponent of the screwball much support. Hubbell, if he holds his current form, may not need a great deal of help, but tho series would have to bo prolonged to six or seven games to give tho Oklahoman a chance to carve three winning 1 performances. The presence of. Hubbell In the box, however, will make the Giants favorites for the opener next Wednesday at tho Polo grounds. If he measures up to expectations, the occasion also may see the end of the Yankee winning streak in world aeries competition. Colonol Jacob Ruppert's riflemen have not been stopped by opposing Sharpshooters since 1926, tho year the Yankees dropped tho verdict to Grover Cleveland Alexander and the St. Louis Cardinals In tho seventh game.

I '( t MEN'S SHOP MAIN FLOOR - I hi'. IN E VICTOR STADIUM First woman to win a Bwidbc transcontinental air race, Louise Thadon. right, of Bentonvllta, Ark., accompanied by Blanche Koycs of Cleveland, with whom she is shown above, streaked across the nation from Now York to Lou Angeles to set a new women's east-west mark of 14 hours, C4 minutes, and 49 seconds. Besides $4000 prize money, MlBs Thaden won a $2500 side purse. H OWARD "Hangman" Caaton* wine, before a house packed to tho rafters hero last night, out- slugged Abie Freeman to win the main, event of the mat mauling card. Both df these boya are mean, well*padded villains that need no moustaches to make their roles convincing, They started the bout with a two-man poolroom riot which ended tn 14 minutes and 80 seconds, going to the "Hangman." Howard, to win the Initial fall, picked up his 246 pounds o£ opposition, Blammed him to the mat twice and then kicked him in the chin for good measure. This bit of delightful notion followed a hitting spree by both badmen. The Hangman and Abio were both soundly booed at the start of the match. By the time the second fall started, however, the fans were all on tho side of Cantonwlno. This ses- slon went to Cantonwlne In lena than throe minutes. Hangman Knraged Tho Hangman NVOB apparently enraged at tho atart of the second fall. Ho bounced out of his corner in fast time for a big man, met Abe before he had hardly como out of his lair. The two slugged toe-to-too during tho rest of the bout, which was short-lived. Honest Abo went down and stayed down for the count, un able, apparently, to tako tho brand of punishment handed out by the hard-hitting Hangman. Brother Johnathan and BUI Hanson wrestled to a draw in the semi- wlndup. This match was Just as wild and rough as the main event. "When tho bell rang ending the bout at the time limit, the boya were still trying to beat each other into Sleepy Hollow. The first fall Went to Brother Johnathan In 19 minutes and 41 seconds, The god Brother used slugs to the Jatv and rabbit punches with all tho trimmings of a free-for- all braw^ to win this session* Patrons Delighted Wild Bill Hanson won tho second fall in 4 minutes and 19 seconds with a body press. Johnathan tangled Bill's feet In tho ropes following 1 a bit of action on top of one of tho ring posts. Colonol Tod Hopkins and a ftnv of the customers Jumped to his aid, After tho reaouo. Will made a "super-spectacular" entry to tho ring and maltreated tho Brother to tho delight of tho pay* Infr patrons.

U. 3, "Moby Dick," the mighty trout of tho Kern, has met hit* Waterloo. At least. Hiiys "Pop," it' tho fish on ice at Bert's store in Kernvllle Is not Moby Dick, it will do until Moby loses enough weight to make it over tho riffle \vhoro this unfortunate plHcntorlal prize was captured. BG- lluve It or not, tho huge speckled beauty wa« landed after a two-day battle. "Pop" believes thai this alone should rate him as the Moby Dick of tho Kern. On Tuesday a stranger fished in the haunts of the old flnh and hooked him on a salmon egg hook. After a brisk baltln, the trout left a sweating, (wearing fisherman on the bank, taking with him the hook and part of tho leader. Next morning "Pop" girded his loins to take up the fray whore tho unsuccessful angler had left off. He dipped his favorite secret lure into tho mighty rapids and fell tho zoom of a striking trout. After a terrific battle he brought his fish to the gaff with ! arms almost paralyzed by tho constant pressure of the fray. The trout weighed 7 pounds even and was exactly 2 foot in length.
