;ESIX THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. FRIDAY, OCT. 27, 1939. C i ; 1-1 a Anticipate Early Burst For NacPhail Babble FAILED 111 PAST Super World Series Destined to Go Up in Laughing Gas By JUDSbNfBAlLEY NEW YORK, Oct. 27.—(.4 1 )— That beautiful bubble blown by i Larry MacPhail in the shape of a super-colossal World Series between all the teams in both major leagues is due to explode from its own laughing ga.s when baseball men dig into figures of past experiments. It sounded like a revolutionary proposal for the second place clubs, the third place clubs and on to the eighth place clubs, to meet to settle the real supremacy of baseball and MacPhail assured one and all that the tremendous venture would make money—in large bunches. But some of the elders in the business shook their heads, suppressed giggles at the redhead's "radical" suggestion and remembered the efforts of big. friendly August (Gerry) Herrmann ' to stage -some similar series three decades back. Two Teams Played In 1909 Herrmann was president of the Cincinnati Reds and chairman of the National Baseball commission. Under the commission's sponsorship that year the Boston Red Sox and New York Gianis, eaun finishing third in their league, played a five-game post-season series which grossed $12,863 and provided a pla'yer pool of $6,677.89 to be divided among the members of both clubs. The following year the New York Yankees and Giants engaged in a city series of six games for receipts of $81,462.50 of which the players received $38,871.88 for division. In the same season an "Ohio series" between Cincinnati and Cleveland brought $1,512.75 with $8,565.62 for the players in seven games. They finished off with a doubleheader to get the affair over quickly. In 1911 this series brought $9,423.75 with $5,088.91 for the players, even though it included two doubleheaders. According to the natural commission's own records, the series produced a deficit of $413.89 which the commission couched up to square accounts. No Profit Here But the final, most ludicrous undertaking of all came in 1917 when, the Browns and Cardinate tangled in a fall St. Louis series.' The first game's receipts were i $85.35. The second game brought j $84.37. The third game jumped' to $191.50 and on the fourth day; for a doubleheader the proceed-J were $367.70 collapsing to $28 \ for the final day and total re-i ceipts of $756.94. i The national commission hand- 1 book, from which all these fig- j ures were taken, shows that Bob, 1 Quinn, now head af the Boston i Bees, received $100 for handling! the business affairs of this series! and that Ernie Quigley was paid i $300 for umpiring. Presumably! the remainder went to the i players. This holds ominous implications for a present day series between, say, the Philadelphia Phillies and the Browns, who would have be.en the rivals in one section of such an inter- league series this year. An exception, it should be noted, is the Chicago city series CENTRAL IMf-lE STATE HUMS TO PHY Yale Invasion of Ann Arbor Leads Eleven Games in Michigan the Ball State Muncie, Ind., at Teachers of Mt.

One other ladies' match rolled Thursday night saw the Tampers take two out of three from Atkinsons. Handy Things, led by A. Hamment, rolled over Schrink's in impressive fashion, winning the match by 364 pins, an average of over 120 per game. Handy Things now has eight wins and four losses. Hamment topped the pinsters in this match with 422 pins including a 158 game. V. Peterson's 320 was high for the losers. The 1 Tamper-Atkinson meeting was a closer match, the Tamper while winning two games, ] compiling only a margin of 45 pins. The two victories lifted the Tamper to a tie for third place I in the standings. Alice Moline was far and away the outstanding bowler at the alleys, racking up a nice 470 total with a 177 in the remaining contest. If good weather prevails approximately 55,000 fans are likely to watch the old -Blues of Yale attempt to avenge a 15 to 13 defeat of 1938 against mighty Michigan at Ann Arbor. At peak physical strength, the Wolverines are favored. Michigan State also plays at home, meeting Illinois Wesleyan in a "breather" at East Lansing.
