SIX THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. TUESDAY, SEPT. 12,1939. Think American League Pendant Will Be Clinched Before; Saturday Night By SID FEDER (Associated Press Sports Writer) The last major intersectional offensives open on the eastern and western fronts of the big leagiie battleground today, with the pennant and the pot of gold •pretty certain to go to the lads Weakness Is Discovered ' . ! . i '• . ••.'.'• In Australians' Game (By ,GAYLE TALBOT) NEW YORK, Sept. 12.—<#•)— Too late to save the Davis cup, but a handy thing to remember for future reference—our tennis boys have discovered a glaring weakness in the Australians' game. They don't like to play on rough, torn-up courts. Bad bounces make them sulk. They go into silent rages when balls land in and fail midcourt to rise. excavations This unfortunate complex is who hold their own in this final j likely to cost them the nationswing: 'round the circuits.

The slaughter-house squad, waltzing along on an eight-game winning streak and a 17-game lead, despite Boston's 11-9 decision over the Athletics Johnny Doeg, who hasn't scored a really important victory since he won the championship back in 1930, was leading Quist two sets to one— 9-7, 2-6, 8-6—when darkness more i stopped them Monday night. I There were many critics who Monday, needs only four victories to clinch. They re hotter than a pair of doubted seriously the Aussie •world's fair feet right now, ace would ral i y and save nim _ i-\ *T- r\£\ i K i _ i . .. those Yanks, and it shouldn't be any trick at all to take those four wins in their own back yard from the Cleveland Indians and the Detroit Tigers.

While they've looked as much like champions recently as a Second avenue stickball squad, it's going to be awfully tough for them, playing at home in the Rhineland, to blow their lead, which obligingly was boosted to 3y 2 games Monday when the Pittsburgh Pirates cuffed the second-place St. Louis Cardinals, 8-6, in the loop's only game. Still, the way things have been going, anything can happen: At the moment, here is the way things stand: Club W L Pet. Cincinnati 78 50 .609 Games .behind, none; games to play, 26.

The Cards, if their hurling department can get a shot in the arm from somewhere, may self today. Doeg, now 30 and long absent from big-time tennis, used the same tactics on Quist that Joe Hunt used on Crawford the previous day. He donned long- spiked shoes, though the court was perfectly dry, and after four of five games had Quist talking to himself. Between games, Adrian and the ball boys replaced what loose sod they could find and tamped down the roughest spots, but Doeg always managed to keep three or four excavations ahead of them. Between bad hops and Doeg's thundering service, Quist look- turned right around and walked the next three. Rookie Maurice Van Robays broke up the ball game with a two-run single. The Red Sox and A's trotted six alleged hurlers out before the Philadelphia folks. Jim Ta- i bor, the Sox third-sacker, was the "payoff guy," whacking a homer and triple to drive five runs home. ed like a fugitive from the mental ward toward the last. Johnny was smart. He didn't let the holes and hollows bother him. Except for return of service, he didn't let the ball light, but took everything he could reach on the volley. Eight other contests were scheduled today, bringing into action half the men and women survivors. Bobby Riggs, No. 1 American, was paired in the fourth round against Edward Alloo, the young surprise from Berkeley, who already had beaten two seeded players, Gene Mako and Ladislav Hecht. Bryan Grant, Jr., of Atlanta faced Harry Hopman of Australia. Joe Hunt of Atlanta met Frank Guernsey, Jr., of Orlando. Fla. Donald McNeill of Oklahoma City played William Talbert of Cincinnati. A third-round tussle between Defending Champion Alice Marble of Los Angeles and Betty Nuthall of England headlined the women's third-round tilts. Mrs. Dorothy Andrus of Stamford, Conn., met Ruth Hardwick of England; Dorothy Bundy of Santa Monica played j Mrs. F. J. Hammerslev of Eng- i land, and Mary Arnold of Los I Angeles faced Virginia Wol- i fenden of San Francisco. Archery Meet Planned At Scottville Sunday New York Boston ... Chicago ..

Left Halfback Shines in First Practice Session of State Squad BAST LANSING, Sept. 12.—(/P) —Left Halfback Jerry Drake i stepped forth from Michigan] State's initial football practice] Monday as heir-apparent, in the kicking department, to the Spartans' Johnny Pingcl, an all- American lost through graduation. Coach Charlie Bachman'sl hunt for a kicker to take over a' part of Pingel's triple-threat' duties also turned up Duane Crcsthwaite. a sophomore, and Stanley McRae, 215-pound lineman. There was talk on the State coaching staff of converting McCrae from a tackle to an end or substitute back that state might cash in the better on his powerful punts. Bachman distributed 64 uni- | forms Monday—more than half j of them to .sophomores. The an- ! nouncement that John Budin-' ski, out la.st fall because of an ankle injury, would be unable to play this seasonIplaced additional emphasis on the new material from which State must recruit its team. Varsity ranks were riddled by graduation. Les Bruckner, whose place- kicking converted many additional points for the Spartans, was back in the line. He seemed destined to relinquish his artificial role of quarterback, and will probably start the season as a tackle. Bachman said his charges were in good physical condition, in the main, and ordered a schedule of two practice sessions a day for the rest of this \\eek to trim off superfluous weight. Monday's opening drills ] were not strenuous, consisting) of calisthenics, running signals | and specialty practice for kick- , ing and passing prospects. j The State coach himself keptj a weather eye on the punters, i hopeful that he might uncover Pingel's equal in that department before the opener with!
