THE DAILY NEWS— LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN, TUESDAY, OCT. 3, 1939. ort Yanks Face Pitching Problem Joe McCarthy Is Up in Air as , Opening Day of Series Approaches By JUDSON BAILEY NEW YORK}, Oct*. 3.— pitching problem, of all things, had the New York Yankee mas- | terniinds fretting today as the | world champions and the Cincin$ nati Reds rehearsed for Wedhes- •?/.':. day's opening act of the 1939 4 World series. 1: Charles (Rufus the Red) Ruf| fing. rugged righthander who i started the first game of the | series last year and also opened " the all-star game for the American league in July, has had an arm ailment. He vowed he was ready to work, but up until the Yankeats straggled onto the soggy turf of Yankee stadium for practice today Manager Joe McCarthy had not decided whether to lead with his ace. Went to Doctor Ruffing has not thrown a business ball since the middle of September, when the last place St. Louis Browns chiselled 13 hits off him in less than nine innings. Ruffing has made at least one recent trip to a muscle specialist in Brooklyn and may or may not have reached the physical fitness he proclaimed. Marse McCarthy, like a Jot of, other persons, wishes he could be sure. If the Yankee skipper should decide to hold back Huffing, he undoubtedly would open with Monte Marcellus Pearson, the chunky Californian who won one game in each of the last three World series for the Yanks. Pearson's record of 12 victories and five defeats was dwarfed beside Ruffing's 21 and seven, but he finished strong. His experience, as much as his curve, ball, second only to Tommy Bridges' in the American league, made him the logical second choice. Lefty Gomez, just out of a hospital and still taped on the back and side where he strained a muscle, did not rate consideration for the first two games, and his appearance at any time during the series was in doubt. 'He has won six World series games with never a setback and in the Yankees' original plans was figured upon for the second game pitching spot Other Candidates Oral Hildebrand and Bump Hadley, well-seasoned performers, were in line for a starting call somewhere along the line. Rookies Atley Donald and Marius Russo. a southpaw, likewise were potential starters, if McCarthy should need to dig that deep into his staff. It seemed likely that Steve Sundra, Johnny Murphy and Spud Chandler would be held strictly for relief summons. iThe Reds arranged to follow the Yankees onto the stadium field (about 1 p. m.) this afternoon for a final workout. Manager Will McKechnie. already had ^ settled on Paul Derringer to hurl the first game for the National league champions. Bucky Walters, the converted infielder who combined with Derringer to win 52 games during the season, was certain of the second game assignment. These two and Gene (Junior) Thompson, 22-year-old rookie who finished the season with two suc r cesslve shutouts, were also the choices to work the two or three games that will be played in Cincinnati starting Saturday. Lefty Lee Grissom, Milt Shoffner and John Niggeling headed the relief corps, with all other members of the staff subject to call on short notice. Contrary to last year when the Chicago Cubs did some last-minute revising, both foes were set on the same lineups that were in regular usage at the end of the season.

Here's what a few fans think: Ludington J. B. Smith, former president of the Ludington -baseball club in the old Central league who claims he hasn't missed picking a winner since 1019, when the same Reds won from the White Sox in the infamous Black Sox scandal: "The Yanks are too ipowerf-ul for the National leaguers tout I 'believe the series will go about six games before the New York outfit comes out on top. The American leaguers excell at almost every position. Ruffing will start for New York and should not have too much trouble winning the opener." •better ball club any way you look at them.
