The score was right on two xmnts. Thc St. Louis Cardinals had toed lie plate tlml many limes, and he game should have been forfeited In what perhaps was the ncsl disgraceful scene In thc.nn- iiis of the sport. Judge Kcncsaw Mountain Landis, supreme commissioner of baseball, took the easy and only way out when he ordered young Joe Mcdwiek from the gnme "to prevent a riot." Under the circumstances, Landis' decision was a level-headed one. Bui it also established a prece- ient for the throwing of things, •lerc's n brand-new way for home fans to help iiicir club. Just boo an opposing star loudly and chuck lollies and fruit or anything landy long enough. The unipire- n-clncf no doubt will give him the bum's rush. That's what Lnn- lis did. Happily for Landis the score of he deciding game of the world scries was so lopsided thai the tordinals made little protest. One could not help but wonder what would have hapi>cned had the game that meant thc world championship and 542,309.99 — the difference between Ihe winning anil losing share of the players' )ri/.c money—been air tight. There is little doubt but that a forfeiture against the idolized Tigers before the hysterical crowd nt Nnvln Field would have resulted in a riot. : * * * Excuse Sly Suikcs • : , ; Yet that is what would' liave transpired had Landis not been present, for Harry Geisel, the iiih- pire-in-clilcf, had the watch out, and tlie veteran Bill Klijiu declared that the gnme would have been forfeited had it been up to him to .decide. • I Landis divested the world series {arbiters of thc power to give the athletes the gate as tlie result of criticism in coiin^iii.ii wilh Heinle Maiuish, of the Senators, being banished in thc Washington club's series with the Oinnts last fall.

In the kind of a scries it was, Medwick's Idea ot a good way I to get Owen off of him was to' kick the third baseman in the stomach with both spiked shoes. Fists seemed about to fly, and the players of both clubs swarmed around the belligerents. When order was restored and play was about to resume, 'Medwick offered to shake hands, but Owen waved him away. Owen also refused to make up when they were called before Landis 15 minutes later.
