The heavy artillery of the New Yorkers held In check for the first, three Innings by the pitching of Guy Bush broke out in the fatal fourth when a home run by Lou Gehrig gave ths Yanfaes a lead Ihey never relinquished. The Cubs off lo a two run lead in the first inning were handicapped by the wildness of their hurlers. Bush was in frequent trouble because of his bases on bails and the support of his infield was faulty. Back In New York for the first time since 1928, the autumn baseball classic began under weather conditions which almost forced ft postponement. The Infield was dry because canvas had protected it from the rains of the past two days. The outfield, however, was noticeably slow.
