>AGESIX THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. Question: 'Can Reds Win A Game?' .WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 27, J939, Fans Take It for Granted That McCarthy Boys Will Walk Over Cincinnati By SID FEDER NEW YORK, Sept. 27.—<#»)— No matter where you go these days—in the pubs, the parks, or the better homes—the boys and girls don't ask "can the Yankees Can Der- Orioles Meet Scottville in Night-Light Opener Game Will Be Played at 9 P. M. Saturday; Remaining Tilts Fridays Coach Mitchell Read is putting his Oriole gridders through a stiff series of practice sessions this week in preparation for the first home game of the season which brings Scottville's Spartans to Ludington as the opposition. The game will be played tliG Instead, they wonder, "can the will" be' the "first "nighT & footbail Reds take a game?" - -----The big question is: Bucky Walters and Paul at 9 p. m. Saturday night and game ever played in Ludington. Installation of the lights is expected to be completed in a ringer, individually^ or _collec- day or two and everything will be set for the home opener. The Scottville game, originally scheduled to be played here Friday night, was moved back one day because it conflicted with the Scottville Harvest festival. AU other Ludington home games will be played Friday nights. Practice sessions for the Ludington gridders are being devoted this week to brushing up on offensive and defensive plays and other weaknesses brought out in the season opener against the Big Reds of Muskegon last Saturday. Various Oriole players are nursing bumps and bruises received in the Muskegon game but the squad is expected to be in tively, stop one of the greatest ball clubs of all time for just one afternoon? They know Mr. Joseph McCarthy's Bronx boys have it all over the Rhineland rascals in every department, and that the Reds' one and only chance rests . on the good right arms of big Bucky and plucky Paul. Big Line-Up Against this pitching, the Yanks haven't a thing except Red Ruffing, Monte Pearson, maybe Lefty Gomez, Steve Sundra, Atley Donald, Bump Hadley, Marius Russo, ad infinitum. ("Ad," of course, isn't one of the boys, but just an idea of how Marse Joe's lads are loaded). It's still possible for the Reds to '"blow" the pennant to the Horn's squad may be small but, the boys are willing and arc likelv i n«^~«« i»/- t o- i j. to blossom out with a successful I Dodgers Win from Giants to hits to win, 15-4. The Detroit Tigers helped the St. Louis Browns reach an all- time low, handing the St. Louis club its 108th and 109th defeats. The Tigers won the opener, 5-4 and took the 7-inning nightcap, 7-5, despite Joe Gallagher's one homer in the first game and two in the second.

BOXING Cardinals, you know, they're only a half St. Louis but since game away from clinching, that possibility is about as strong as that of seeing an elephant strolling down Broadway eating an ice cream cone. Now, Bucky and Paul have been as valuable to Cincinnati thte year as a t-bone steak to a starving man, but the way the •Beds have had to fight right down to the wire has done neither any good. They've won .more than 50 games between them so far, which is pretty fair country twirling and no mistake, but they've been so overworked these last couple of weeks that they got the idea they were back on the farm pushing a plow again. Very Little Pressure Against that setup, Ruffing, Gomez, Pearson & Co. have been having the life of Riley. The Yanks clinched the American league flag, 'way back there in mid-September; since then there hasn't been any more pres-| years up there. good shape when it field against the takes the Spartans. Whether the team will be at full strength, with veterans like Snow and S. Horowski who have been nursing leg injuries which kept them out of the Muskegon fray, in the line-up, has not yet been announced. Scottville displayed unexpected strength in holding Shelby to a close 13-7 score in the Spartans' opener played in the Oceana county city. With only 18 men out for the Scottville team, Shelby was rated an overwhelming favorite to trim the Mason county eleven by a big margin but had to be satisfied with a one touchdown victory. Scottville displayed fight in the Shelby tilt and can be expected to put up a rousing battle against its Mason county Class B rival, in the past few years Ludington has beaten numerous Big Seven teams by larger margins than they have trimmed the Spartans. Coach John De- for a .bargain-day audience of 625 (count 'em). Today's engagement found Detroit continuing its late September fight to catch the fourth place Cleveland Indians and big Louis (Buck) Newsom trying for his 19th win of the season. Newsom's chances of winning 20 games for the second straight year appeared considerably brighter than the prospects of Detroit reaching fourth place again at the close of the campaign. Big Buck, a work-horse, will undoubtedly see action in one of Detroit's concluding four home games against the Indians. The Tigers this morning were three and one-half games in back of Cleveland and with only five contests left to play the margin looked insurmountable. clorama was given so much j action, with exception of Scott- prominence, if you didn't know, ville Rotary and American 1'or the Reds moved so close ; Laundry they almost could touch the i pennant by dividing the opening doubleheader of their crucial four-game series Tuesday.

Notable among these fellows too young for such a fate are Gene Thompson, pleasant surprise among the year's rookies, and Lefty Lee Grissom, who always has things happen to him.

So, it's up to Bucky and Paul against Red and Leity or Monte.
