No longer are cheerleaders obliged to plead with students for a few yells. The cheers break forth sp n- taneously now, interspersed with individual exhortations of leather- lunged soloists. At Io\va State, where students strode decorously, almost glumly, .o and from classes a year ago, cheering is likely to break forth anytime and anywhere. • A similar revival- of pep has j taken place at Iowa City where (students and townspeople alike taken a. new lease on life jwith prospects for a winning foot- iball Frruad.

The two teams will meet for the first time in 13 years on Nov. 4, thereby reviving the strenuous competitive feeling between the re- spective student bodies and alumni. Thus far no evidence has become apparent that Coach George Veenker of Iowa State or Coach Ossie Solem at the university is pointing his respective eleven for the Nov. 4 conflict. The university faces a tough Big Ten schedule and Iowa State will meet equally severe competition'in the Big Six. Nevertheless students and alumni of the two schools are waiting for the game, as already has been reflected in-box office receipts both here and at Iowa City. Following Jowa's defeat of Northwestern at Chicago and Iowa States upset of the highly touted Denver university squad, orders for tickets to the state school classic flooded the athletic offices. Man. persons have ordered as many as 30 or 40 tickets, it was reported .'. the^athletic office. Alumni groups in'various communities desirous of sitting together at the contest have ordered them in blocks. Orders also have come from numerous alumni in surrounding states who desire to see the teams iu "do or die" competition again. Shoot To Be Held at Lapp Lab. Sun.

The baseball classic gained in interest, If that is possible, when the Giants took the opening game. They were favored, but had they faltered, as they threatened to do in those closing innings Tuesday, the gimp-starch would have been taken out of the show. Tuesday's paid attendance total- led 46,672. It -was more than a sell-out^ indicating that more money is in the hands of baseball fans than in the lean, barren years between 1929 and 1932. It's better than even money that another capacity crowd will be on hand at Wednesday's contest. Wednesday's game ought to be even better than the opener. The Giants have now become opportunists. They've broken the idea that the Senators are either supermen or form an unbeatable baseball club. At the same time the slugging Senators may be expected to throw off the manacles which Tuesday were clamped on their wrists by Carl Hubbell, currently the greatest pitcher in the world. Plenty, of Woe Ahea'd If there is anything to the law of averages there should be plenty of woe ahead for Prince Hal Schumacher if he gets the Giants pitching assignment as is expected. For that matter, "General" Alvin Crowder, who is exnected to curve for the Senators, faces no strawberry festival, for onlv one of the Giants really srot the batting range Tuesday. This exceotion was AM Ott. 24-year-old outfielder from Louisiana. He was, as John McGraw nointed out. perfect. He hit four times in as many tries. Tuesday's game " was largely bound up between two players. Carl Hubbell and Mel Ott. Had Huhbell been gi.en the support Le had every right to expect, his performance would be talked about for years to come. But the Giants contributed enough misplays at precisely the wrong moments to nut the Oklahoma screwball artist in three separate bowls of hot water. Ott drove in the runs to offset bis mates' -*misp3ay. His homer in the first inning, while it did not actually put the game on ice. did cool "ff Washington's hopes. His other hits were single. -'"' Myer Is Goat The game had its goat. He was Buddv Solomon Myer, probably the best Jewish player in the game and the man picked by the Giants as their most brilliant opponent. He began his unhappy day early, making an error on the first ball batted, and subsequently added two more misplays. He had a total of seven chances, and the three errors approached an all-time low wor world series fielding. The game put the betting at nearly even money, if it wasn't precisely even it was because of pitching. There will be those fans Iowa State and Drake 2-Milers Meet Nov. 11 Iowa State will meet Drake in a two-mile team race between halve* of the Iowa State-Kansas State football game on State field Armistice day, Nov. 11. This is the only fall r»ce definitely scheduled for the Cyclone harriers, but Coach Robert Simson Is bargaining for additional runs with Iowa, Missouri, Drake, and Grinnell, and a sprint medley with Nebraska. The latter, if it can "be arranged, will be held between halves of the Cyclone-Cornhusker football game n State field Oct. 14 and will be a six-man relay in which the first two runners will carry th6 baton 110 yards each, the second two 220 and the last two 4<0. NIGHT AIR RACE INDIANOPOLIS. Ind, (U.E> — Altho facing disqualification, Frank Bowman, jr.. El Paso, Tex., flier, Wednesday held an hour's lead over the nearest of his three rivals in the first transcontinental night air derby. The derby, sponsored by the National Air pageant at Roosevelt field, New York, this week-end, was designed to demonstrate the practicability of night flying. The pilots were required to land by 9 a. m. each day. Bowman, however, did not land at Wichita. Kan.. Tuesday's stop after an overnight trip from Los Angeles, until aft€r 9 p. m. He told officials that he had been gassed by fumes in his cockpit and had been grounded for three hours. He continued flying in the hope that be would win the $3,000 prize money. Bowman landed at the municipal airport here at 11:43 p. m. and took off direct for Roosevelt field five minutes later. His nearest rival, M. J. Chumbley, ''society ace" from New York and Miami, Fla., landed at 12:59 a. m. Wednesday and left 10 minutes later. He also hoped to fly direct to New York, who will point out that if the Giants had so much trouble in winning behind their ace, Mr. Hubbell. they will have trouble in double doses behind any of their other flingers. And don't let anybody say the Giants didn't have trouble in the inaugural. TLere was that fourth- inning lapse when Myer's single and Hugh it ...Critz's. error and a fielder's choice brought Buddy all the way home. There was another minor flurry in the eighth when successive bases on balls and a fielder's choice sent Luke Sewell to third. And finally, there was a major disturbance in the ninth when Blondy .Ryan's error; and singles by Manager Joe Cronin and Fred Schulte paved the way for Heinie Manush's score and left the tying runs on bose. The Giants' side of the scoring was bound up^in Ott. His homer In the first scored two runs. His single in the third brought home one of the two 'runs made in that inning. Rrauchep Champion Three-year-olds T ET'S start by asking you: what •* J horse was the champion three- year-old of 1932? That's a tough one. But no harder question than is to be asked- this year, when any one of 10 horses may be awarded the honor arbitrarily. Last year's leading money-winner was a horse named Gusto, crusader mostly on eastern tracks. The year before that found Twenty Gran<| the greatest, with money earnings of 5218,545. though Mate was right behind the Greentree train with $214.775 to his credit. A majority agreed that Twenty Grand, aside from financial returns. was the better horse. » * * Upstarts Step In 'year's situation is most c- "~ puzzling. Upsets and Inconsistencies have marked the performance of all the top flight gee-gees. Favorite hides inevitably took their shellackings. Broker's Tip, an outsider, won the 'Kentucky Derby. Then Head Play stepped in to win the Preakness after Broker's Tip broke a bone In bis foot. The experts went warm over Mr. Khayyam after that son of old won the American Derby — but Mr. Khayyam developed the habit of trailing his field thereafter until the Wood Memorial, which he managed to win from a good field. A boss named Gold Basis bobbed into the picture by winning the Lntonia Derby, and bobbed right out again as quickly as he had come. • » • Belmont and Arlington TT was expected the Belmont •*• Slakes would decide something.

They're telling a lot of clown stories about him ... but he's no clown In the box. With JACK CUDDY (U. P. Staff Corr«portdtnt) NEW YORK (UJE)—-Iff becoming increasingly dangerous for Sena- tori to play around New York. Huey Long got socked In the peeper at Sands Point, and Tuesday Joe Cronin's outfit suffered a black eye at the Polo grounds. One punch darkened Senator Long's glimmer, but Carl Hubbell had to throw the ball toward the plate 144 times against Washing* ton—which Is a gross something or other. The Senators are protesting their treatment In New York. Catcher Luke Sewell complained to the umpire that the Giants were not staying in the batter's boi. He was the last to find it out. Exactly 46,672 fans already had noticed the Giants scampering out of the box and around the bases. And now Manager Cronin asks little Melvln Ott not be allowed to play "the perfect day" with his bat, particularly In trying times when the Senators are appealing to the NRA to settle the Hubbell strike situation. He suggests that Hubbell be given & mail route In the mountain country—his delivery is so crooked. The Senators' pre-game plot -to tickle the Giant players into anae- mia was foiled when one of their own men was beaned.

He staggered to "the clubhouse between- two • comrades. The crowd thot it part of the act, so Altrock and Schacht got their first applause. Their backs are still sore from bowing. Far Out in Left Field The Philadelphia Athletics were not good enough to play in the series, but their first baseman, Jimmy Foxx, muscled into the game. Sitting in the' press' box, Expect 25,000 To See White Sox and Cubs CHICAGO, OLE) — The. opening game of the city series between 1 the third-place Chicago Cubs and the sixth-place Chicago White Sox was expected to draw a crowd of 26,000 tb Wrigley Field Wednesday. Guy Bush, who won 20 games for the Cubs, and Sad Sam Jones. 41-year-old WLite Sox curve ball pitcher who has won 10 and lost 12 this season, were named to start the game. In IS previous city series, the White Sox, present holders of the title, have won 10 times, the Cubs seven times. One was a tie. The second game of the series also will be played at Wrigley Field, with the next two at Comiskey Park Friday and Saturday. If a fifth game is necessary it-will be played at Comiskey park Sunday. If the'sixth and seventh games are necessary they will be played at Wrigley Field, Monday and Tuesday. •••••. ii • " •< Jimmy caught a foul barehanded. He rose and took a bow, but got soi. and kept the ball because the fans thot him a writer. Buddy Myer of the Senators, the only Jewish player in the lineup, received ill the bronx cheers. The fact that he equaled a world series second baseman record may have been responsible. Buddy evened the mark of three errors in one game set by Danny Murphy of the Athletics in the 1905 classic with the Giants. Ben Chapman of the Yankees, Myer's most ardent admirer, hopes that Buddy will continue hie clip and equal Peckln- paugh's series record of nine errors made In the 1925 Washington- Pittsburgh classic. Even the weather couldn't please everybody. Some fans »at muffled in top coats. Others were in their reg.:..r civvies, but many were in shirt sleeves. Clark Griffith could hardly keep his shirt on. s When Mel Ott sent his four-bag- ger sailing Into the stands, two home runs were registered, because Ja'ck Doyle, Broadway betting commissioner, hurried home sick. Last night old Jack sobbed into his crying towel, "with 18 men on the field, why did every one have to have his dough on Ott?" The series opener was held Inside the Polo grounds, but there was more excitement on the outside where 15,000 fans rioted because they couldn't buy bleacher seats. They showed they take their baseball seriously this season because police reserves, mpunted and afoot, had to be called to restore order; Several score were injured by fists, clubs and horses' hoofs. The fans and police meant no harm, but anything can happen in baseball. Pigeon Race Starts Here On Saturday Racing pigeons from many states and several foreign countries will be released from the North Western station here Saturday at 6 a. m. in a race whose finish will be a feature of the world fair to Chicago. The start will not be made, however, if weather is unfavorable. The public is invited to witness the release of the birds. The results of the race will be broadcast from Chicago as soon as they are determined. The race is sponsored by the American Racing Pigeon union and will be one of the most important ever held. James Prusa of Chicago will be in charge of liberation of the birds In place of Mr. Albers, veteran liberator, who has been in charge of many races from Ames. The pigeons will arrive in Ames at 10:30 Friday. Originally It was planned to release them from the college campus but It was found that that plan would not be practicable.
