·JEFFERSON CITY, 7510.7 SORD'AY/CCTOBER 4, 1942 THE SUNDAY NEWS AND TRIBUNE Page 9 ' Cardinal litters Gone, Southworth Praises Lanier Or Mori Cooper Hurls Today Cooper Confident of Win After Six Days Resl; Yanks Silent BY CHARLES DUNKLEY NEW YORK, Oct. 3-- (AP) -The boisterous, jubilant St. Louis Cardinals, their nervous tension entirely gone, are supremely .confident they are on the march, with victory certain, and nothing whatever will stop them. That was the attitude of manager Billy, Southworth down .to- the last player as they staged a ping celebration in their dressing room after blanking the New York Yankees, 2 tc 0, in the third game of the series today to move into a 2 to 1 lead. Southworth himself- was the authority that the Cards had been relieved of tension. "But, mind you," he explained. "I ain't going to make any predictions. We've still got. to win two ball games. -The Yankees are tough -- there are no tougher and we've got to play to win." Southworth Praises Chandler Southworth .praised Spurgeon Chandler's pitching, the pitching of his own victorious Ernie White, and the, marvelously thrilling, jumping, one -"hand catch Enos (Country) Slaughter made of Charley Keller's shashing drive in the 'seventh in- Slaughter, with perfect' timing jumped to make the catch with his gloved left hand as the ball ···· was dropping into the crowded ". stands for a home run. f "That .was a thriller." South- worth said. "It would have gone into the stands for sure to tie the score. The grinning White, who held the Yanks to six hits, thought it ·was the best game he'd pitched in his life. "Boy, I feel gooder as hell," he yelled. "It was the greatest game I ever hope to pitch." Cooper or Lanier f Southworth said either big Morton Cooper, ace righthander, or Max Lanier, a lefty, would oppose 'the Yanks tomorrow. He said he wanted 'to talk the situation over with Lanier tonight to 01earn how he feels' before reaching a decision. Cooper, a 22-game winner, with ten shutouts and only seven defeats, hopes Southworth will select him. The Yanks beat him . 97 to 4, in the opening game at St. Louis. The 28-year-old Cooper is confident he can blot out that defeat. "I had six days rest and didn't · ·have my. control," Cooper explained. 'Tve. got it now.' 1 i Cooper is sure the Cardinals are on their way to the world's championship. "We've got the big edge no\y,' b ·he said. "They've got-.- to. win three out .of four' now." "We -haven't lost a, series since last July when Brooklyn beat us four out of five. .. It's damn tough to beat this club out of four." Yanks Silent Again In the Yankee dressing room, · there was only silence as the beaten American League champions trooped in, grim-faced and M. M A. Defeats St. Peters High; Missouri U. Smashes Colorado University Ernie White Petes Suffer Second Loss ToM.M.A.7-0 Cadets Score in First Period in Early Offensive Cards, Yanks Train Schedule Arranged WASHINGTON, Oct. 3--(AP) --The New. York Yankees and the St. Louis Cardinals should have no trouble getting back to St. Louis next week--if the fortunes, of baseball extend the World Series beyond five games --on regularly schedules trains, the office of defense transport tation said today. The only restriction imposed on the ball clubs by ODT's recent time table freezing order is the ban against chartering entire cars for the teams. Simplest solution would be for the team's secretaries merely to apply for the necessary number of upper and lower berths, and there would be no government objection if this meant the addition of three, four' or five cars to a regular scheduled train, the one spokesmen said. Even if the addition of a second section to a regular train were required to carry the athletes, ODT under its order would interpose no objection if the train had run added sections 20 pe_r cent of the time in the last 90' days.

With'his uniform still intact, even to the cap, McCarthy sat and opened his mail as he talked to reporters, disappointment written all over him. £ "You can't beat that.'-- declar- *ed the Yankee skipper, recalling the play which was cailed off in the third inning when Martin Marion of 'the Cards got two · chances at bat and finally hit a -^swinging bunt that put the first - run in scoring position. "We claimed he hit the ball :.: twice," said McCarthy. "The ; second time he was not in the ;; box and should have been out. · ^They brought him back and what - did he do but hit a swinging World Series Sidelights YANKEE STADIUM, New York, Oct.: 3 -- (AP) --:Press coop peeks at the third World Series game: The huge triple decked stadium, which most of the Cardinals were viewing from the inside for the first time didnt -seem to awe them one bit . . . The bases were 90 feet apart the same as in any park, but the' Cards made the: distance, .look shorter. . .And they showed the' Yanks that the only way they will get a home run is', to hit the ball into one of the upper decks. . . .Before the game-the Cards figured they might be handicapped by.the infield here, with its thick, grass carpet, after playing on their own diamond which is devoid of vegetation. . .but that didnt seem to bother them either. "The Cards made only 5 assists in the game. .The record for fewest assists in a series, contests is three shared by the Card and the Philadelphia Athletics. . .Joe Gordon may whiff- himself to a series record. .The Yankee second baseman, who was batting star of the 1941 Classic, has failed six times in the three series games this year. . . . The record is ten for a seven game series. The Missouri Military Academy Colonels, on a first quarter drive, handed the St. Peters High School Saints their second- successive setback yesterday 7 to 0 on a rain-soaked gridiron, before a small crowd. Leonard Schneiter, left halfback for the Cadets, plunged over his left "tackle from the one yard line to make the only touch down of the day, a few minutes after the game got underway. The Petes elected to kick off in the opening quarter, and M.M.. took over on its own 39- yard line. On five successive first downs, the Colonels moved into scoring position with Schneiter carrying the mail for the tally. It was Schneiter, again, who passed to Burks for the extra point. In the second quarter, the Petes stiffened,'and most of the play was confined to midfield. To M.M.A. 35 After the-half, the Pete offensive began .t.o - click and moved the pigskin, to the , M.M.A. 35- yard marker -- the deepest penetration made by the Blue and White all afternoon. Deeken, left half-back for the Petes, went out of the game twice on injuries. He was carried out in the middle of the third quarter when his right leg was hurt. However, he shook it off and came back into the game several minutes later, only to be hurt again in the final period. Ear,ly in., the fourth i quarter, the Saints recovered a fumble by M.M.A. and -took over on the 50-yard stripe. However, the strong wall of the Colonels held and the Petes were forced to kick out. As the game ended, the Saints held the ball on their own 10- yard line, forced to that point by an M.M.A. punt. Aerial Attack Fails An aerial attack by the Petes, launched in the second half; failed to develop. Several passes tossed by Deeken found their way to the intended receivers, but were fumbled. It was the second loss for St. Peter's, who dropped their opener 40 to 7 last week, against Fulton High School. The win for the Cadets kept their record unmarred.

Getting revenge for the half-a- nose defeat he was handed by Alsab in their match race two weeks ago, little Mr. Big Tail trounced the Sab by "three quarters 'of a length in the 23rd running of the jockey club gold cup at Belmont Park, picked up an 518,350. pay check and became the first horse in all turf history to win more than half a million dollars. .. What's more, he did it under a classy ride by Georgie (the iceman) Woolf, who was partly blamed for the match race defeat. As a matter of fact, Woolf. not only got even but with the victory he rounded out what was probably this year's top gold- fitffd "double." For, only about an hour before he hit the jack pot with Whirlaway, the iceman sat in the saddle as John Marsch's Occupation waltzed to five-length victory in the $57,890 Belmont last week in a game played under similar weather conditions.

Despite the money involved in the futurity "and the possibility that this year's victor might go to break the ancient jinx that a futurity winner never takes the Kentucky derby the second go- round for Alsab and Whirlaway was the hot hoss race today. The 31,805 cash customers proved it. They bet $105,970 on Whirly's nose--more than had ever been bet in New York before on a horse to win. Whirly was slowly increasing his edge at the wire as he finished the two-miles in 3:21 3-5, running the last quarter mile in the good time of 25 1-5 seconds. It was double revenge for Whir- laway, for he not only kayoed the Sab, but at the finish he was nearly nine lengths in front of Townsend Martin's Bolingbroke, who handed him a whipping in North American record time on this same strip only a week ago.

Tigers Win 261o 13 Over Colorado 4000 Spectators at Game Kept on Feet During Struggle tor Victory BY FRANK HOOD COLUMBIA. Mo., Oct. 3--(AP) --Missouri punched out a 26 to 13 victory over a plucky Colorado team today in a game that gave few of the 4,000 spectators time to sit down between plays. The handful of customers had hardly gotten into their seats when Don OHara, Missouri's junior halfback, ripped off his own left tackle and scampered 65 yards for the first score. The play was the first Missouri effort from scrimmage. The Big Six champions were on their way to another marker as the first period ended with the pigskin resting on the Colorado 37. As play resumed, Ralph Carter ripped 11 yards to the Buffs' 26, and then with Tiger fans sensing a route, Stan Hendrickson, Colorado's star left end, did a little scoring of his own:off the famed Missouri "T" formation. The 185-pound Buff Flanker exploded through the Tiger line, and literally stole the ball from Ervin Pitts who was attempting a toss off to big Bob Steuber. The play was so sudden that Missouri could only look on as the rangy Hendrickson galloped 74 yards to even the count. Colorado set the Tigers back to their own 20 with a punt into the end zone. O'Hara swept his left terminal lor a 19-yard advance and Morton got a dozen more yards on. an end-around slicker. The Missourians then sent Steuber wide around the right sideline when he suddenly skidded to a halt, reversed his field and sprinted 53 yards to give the home team their sec- end marker. The Buffs then went to work again with Maurice (Tex) Reilly tossing aerials all over the field, One sally was halted by a Missouri interception on the Tiger 39, but the Rocky-Mountain eleven got possession of the ball and Reilly Gordon Bumbard, reserve back, tossed for a 40-yard completion that reached the Missouri 18. Another pitch into the end, zone almost connected as the gun terminated the half. Missouri had their third score four minutes after the start of their own 33 the Tigers, with Junior Darr, O'Hara and Capt. Don (Bull) Reece alternating slashes, paused on the Buff 17 only long enough for 'coach Don Faurot to insert Steuber. Steuber faded back, spotted end Fisherman Wickett CORVALLIS, Oct. 2 --Lloyd Wickett, Oregon State's letterman left tackle, spent the summer as a professional fisherman i i n Alaska.

Several other Missouri marches were halted and the Tigers finally tried to boost the gap with a futile field goal effort trom near midfield. Reilly came back with a long forward to Johnny Adams, freshman back, who lateralled to Stearns on the 50. Stearns was dropped on the Tiger 37 as the quarter ended. After the teams changed goals Reilly hit Dick Woodward with a 35-yard" flip, and the Buff end slithered across the goal. Hendrickson was a particular thorn in the Tiger side. He not only scored the first Buff tally, but repeatedly dropped Missouri ball carriers for sizeable losses. Colorado POS. Missouri Henrickson L.E. Lister Smith L.T. Carpenter Shannon L.G.
