THE HARTFORD DAILY COURANT: MONDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1926. then Ueucel aion furnished the blj climax. - With two on base Kafey lofted to "laft. The ball should have beea easy atul and allowed Koenlg to chase it. Then Bob swung Into action, too late to reach the ball, which fell sale between them, filling the bases. But this was trivial to what follow , ed. O'Farrell filed to left center. Combs 'could have handled the hits, but he haa a weak throwing arm and with , play at the plate looming ahead Combs let Meusel handle the ball. Bob's arm I having strength and accuracy. The I ball settled In Meusel's glove, then : bounced out. I Meusel madly pursed the horse bide, 'snatched It up, but one run scored. J The bases were still full and the stage Sail tet for Thevenow' game wlnnlnj hit. Miserable Weather. i Miserable weather conditions prevailed. Rain In the morning, which ceased at ld-day, made the basepaths moist and slow, left the outfield damp and slippery enough to bother the fly-chssers. A cold, clammy mist hung over the par for the first seven Innings and then the sun broke through the clouds for a few minutes. It was an ideal day tor fast ball pitching. Fast Ball Pitching. Both Haines and Hoyt used plenty of "smoke." Walte mixing in a pretty hook curve. Hoyt, who bears the reputation of never having pitehed a poor game in a World Series, allowed but five hits in the six Innings he slabbed. However Hoyt made trouble for himself by grooving the ball after he had batters "In ths hole." Walte's control was good, no free passes being Issued. Pennock wobbled badly la his three innings allowing three hits and finding trouble getting the ball across. Haines was not nearly as effective as in the first game he won. He could not control his slow ball or curve and had to depend on his speed. He walked no less than five, four of his passes being intentional. Three of these were to Ruth and one to Gehrig. The other was to Gehrig, unintentional, and it brought Alexander Into the game. The Tanks made eight hits off Haines in 6 3-3 innings. Joe Dusan. Hank Serereld and Earl Combs were the leading hitters for the losers each getting two. Ruth's home run and Meusel's single represents the rest of the Yanks' attack. Thevenow. Homsby and Hafey each gathered two hits for the Red Birds. Bottomley and Haines getting one each. Severeld's double and Ruth's homer were the only extra base blows. Cards' Fielding Perfect. The Red Birds were the steadier in the field, while Koenlg, Dugan and Meusel slipped defensively. There was not the semblence of an error In tne ranks of the National Leaguers. This effective fielding figures in the left on base totals eleven of the Yanks and but seven Cards being stranded on the sacks. Manager Homsby garnered the first hit, single with two out in the first, but was left when Bottomley popped up to Gehrig. The Yanks threatened In their half after two were out. Ruth drew the first Of his four passes and dashed to third when Meusel singled to right. Gehrig drove a sizzling roller right at Homsby. who Juried it but recovered in time to retire Lou as first. The Red Birds went out one. two three in the second. Ruth making his feature catch off O'Farrell lor the third out. The Yanks again proved a menace, when with one out Dugan singled over second. He was thrown out. O'Farrell to Thevenow. trying to steal. Bevereid drove a single over third but Haines tossed out Hoyt. Thevenow's single to left and Haines' sacrifice roller to Gehrig put the Red Birds In a scoring position in the third. Hoyt put on his stuff here, Holm popping to Severeld and South-worth lifting a fly to Meusel. Ruth's long home run into the right field bleachers gave the Yanks the lead in their half. Fatal Fourth Inning. The story of the fatal fourth is the story of the championship. Three runs developed from the Yanks weird fielding and Thevenow's timely hit. With one out Bottomley hit Hoyt's first pitch to left for a single. Bell's roller to Koenlg was booted and all hands were safe. Hafey filed to left and was credited with a single when Meusel and Koenlg failed to handle the ball. This filled the bases. Hoyt quickly put over two (strikes on O'Farrell but his third pitch was over the plate. Bob drove a high fly to left center. Meusel dropped the ball, Bottomley scoring. Hoyt pitched two strikes against Thevenow but again his third pitch caused trouble as Tommy drove a la?y short liner to right center. The Yankee infield was In close, playing to cut a nm off at the plate, otherwise the hit would have gone direct to Lazzeri. The tingle scored Bell and Hafey. Haines fanned and Holm forced Thevenow, grounding to Koenlg. Haines walked Gehrig to open the fourth. Lazzeri filed to Holm nnd then Haines threw out. Dugan. Lou moving on to second. Here Thevenow killed all hope of a run by doing an lirplane stunt to pull down Sev'ereld's wicked liner for the third out. The fifth was an uneventful frame for the Red Birds. Southworth and Homsby going out on fly balls to Gehrig and Combs and Bottomley being thrown out by Lazzeri. The American Leaguers made another false start in their half. With or.c out Comb singled over second, Keonlg lined te Hafey. Ruth drew intentional pass number two, while the crowd booed. It was up to Meusel, whose contribution was a roller to Haines, Bob being an easy out at first. Yanks Score In Slvth. While the Red Birds were blanked in their half of the sixth the Yanks icored their second run. For the Cards Bell filed to Meusel. Hafey was safe on Dugan's bad throw but v. as caught stealing, Severer! to Kcenip.. O'Farrell filed to Dugan. Two were out before Dugan chopped a single to left. With Joe on firs;. Severeid's legitimate single was turned into a double by Hafey'a bad play, Dugan scoring. Here Huggins decided to do a little "modern mind" stuff. He substituted Ben Paschal for Hoyt at the bat and sent Spencer Adams to second to run for Bevereid. Paschal gave Haines :o trouble, quickly getting iwo strikes and then bounding a high one to t)w box. Jess throwing him out at first. Pennock Sent In. The flash of strategy forced Huggins to bring Pennock to t he slab with Vat Collins behind the plate After Dugan threw out Thevenow Haines singled but was forced at second by Holtn, Ougan to Lazzeri. Pennock then d.?-Ilected Southworth's hard smash to Koenlg who retired Billy at first. The seventh was the hig inning for ihe Yankees although they did not icore. Combs set the crowd cheering rlth a single to left. He wont to sec-nd on Koenlg's sacrifice. Bell to B n-mley. For the third time Ruth as Intentionally passed and the "boos ' c uKXi OW.NF.KH AT TENANTS LIABIHIV INN. echoed and re-echoed through the park. Meusel forced Ruth at second. Bell to Horosby. Haines pitched two strikes to Gehrig, then lost control and four balls followed. Alex Whiffs Lazzeri. The lack of control filled the bases. Homsby called a conference of war at the pitchers box. As a result Alexander came into the game. His first offering to Lazzeri was a low curve. It was a ball. His next was a fast curve which broke over the heart of the plate. A fast ball, Inside, followed and Lazzeri lined it Into the left field stand for a foul strike. Alex came back with another low, fast curve. Tony chasing it for the third strike and third out Hornsby's single to center and Bot-tomley's sacrifice bunt put the Red Birds to scoring position in the eighth. Bell skied to Combs and Haley's hard bouncer broke through Dugan for a hit. Horraby going to third. O'Farrell forced Hafey, Koenlg to Lazzeri. Alex mowed the Yanks down quickly. Thevenow throwing out Dugan. Collins fouling to Bottomley and Pennock to Homsby. Neither club was effective in the ninth, Thevenow and Holm popping to Ruth and Gehrig while Kocnig threw out Alexander. Bell threw out Combs and Koenlg in the Yanks .ast chance and then Ruth drew his fourth base on balls but was out at second, ending the series. Evolution Proves Creator's Reality Says Dr. Coffin Every Scientific Investigator Professes Religious Faith He Tells Yale New Haven, Oct. 10 (Associated Press.) Rev. Dr. Henry Sloane Coffin, president of Union Theological Seminary, speaking In Battell Chapel of Yale University today, expressed the belief that above "the long evolution of our race, from the slime until now, a kindly and wise providence has presided. "Suppose we look at the universe through the eyes of the modern physicist," he said, "and think of it as built up of whole centers of energy, the electrons whence comes this flood of force in the sun and in all things? Or suppose we look with the naturalist at this miracle of life rising and dying down In plants and living creatures. We talk of cells with their marvelous structure nnd stored up energy. We peer Into this populous hidden world which a microscope reveals, with more Inhabitants In a teaspoonful of garden soil than are listed on the census rolls of an entire country. But whence comes this flood of perennial life, yetir after year, generation after genera tion? 'It piques our curiosity, and scien tific minds sally out to explore it. Un consciously they profess a religious faith a faith that the cup of energy and life will be found orderly so that. It can be understood and found In- herltimtly good; every scientific Investigation believes the cup intelleglble and worth knowing a faith very close to that of those who say we believe in a wise and good God."

Dr. Hough prefaced bis Introduction of President Green with a cordial ex-pi colon of concurrence in the statement! of Dr. Tippy. Green's lieiniiiks. "I wish it were possible for me. adequately to express an appreciation of the service rendered by the Federal Council of Churches or Christ !n America, through Its representatives who arc participating with us In this soirmn and dignified service," Mr. Green said. "There is no bitterness, no resentment. In my heart and mind over the incidents of the past week. There is a basis of right human relationships. It lies deep within the conscience of men. "The Interest which the church Is manifesting In industrial problems Is highly appreciated and sincerely welcomed. Its moral Influence 1 of great value. It can help In the solution of out vexing problems. We need more of the influence of the church ami the spirit of brotherhood and goodwill, not. less of It, In the relationships between all the forces of Industry." Dr. Hough paid tribute to the Catholic Church for Its spiritual leadership "In many critical periods of history." In concluding the meeting, he said no one save the church Itself ever could be authority "for the genuine attitude of the church." Rev. Dr. Ryan reviewed the history of the Catholic- Church as a friend and benef.ic'or of labor throughout the world and lauded the American Federation for its "sane and constructive leadership." He said the Interest of humanity was the first responsible y and the "continuous duty of the church." Schooner Hammed. Vineyard Haven, Oct. 10. ( Associated Press.)

Old Granite Road Marks Centennial In Massachusetts Railway Was Built to Transport Granite For Bunker Hill Monument Milton, Mass., Oct. 10. (Associated Press.) This town is celebrating the 100th anniversary of the opening of the first railroad in Amelrca. For on October 7, 1826, the old Granite Railway, declared by students of history here to have been the earliest in the United States, was put into operation. The road owed Its construction to one of the nation's most famous war memorials, for It was built to transport the cranlte used In the construction of Bunker Hill Monument, erected to commemorate the revolutionary battle there. The line ran from the granite quarries in the Qulncy hills to the Neponset river, where the granite was transferred to barges for the rest of the journey to Boston. This early tram line was but a forerunner of the steam roads, but its claims to priority over other railroads In the couxitry are based on documents of the New York. New Haven & Hartford Railroad. The present branch of tho "New Haven" follows the route ot the old Granite road. "The precedence of this road In the history of railways is fixed beyond a doubt, though debate may go on," said Rev. Warren P. Landers, head of the committee In charge of the observance of the road's 100th anniversary. "In the competition for first place, the Pennsylvania Railroad goes back to im:i, but the charter of -that date lapsed without; accomplishment. The Mohawk & Hudson, which celebrated a centennial as did the New York Central last April, did not begin to build until 1830. The first Baltimore & Ohio road was based on a charter dated February 28. 1827." The celebration of the road's centennial bepan in the churches of the town today. The observance will be continued in all the public schools tomorrow, and Columbus Day the town will unveil a bronze memorial tablet beside the site of the old road.

"Is it fair to act like this and use other duress on the one, or may ne more, who believes himself right although in the minority, but who has pressing reasons to complete his service? Has that one the right to give in to such duress?" "He has not." the judee thundered. "Each Juror must stand by his honest conviction unless argument should cause him to change his mind." "Then I warn your honor that that is exactly what Is going to happen," said Von Ost wearily. "If you keep us here, sooner or later some one is go ing to blow up and by blow Up, I mean blow down.

The representatives of 400,000 French war veterans Informed Premier Poln-care today that these ex-sold lers would stubbornly oppose ratification of the Washington and London debt agreements In their present form, even though such action might bring about the downfall of the government. M. Poincare assured them that France would undertake payments onlg within her capacity to pay and to a degree that would not disrupt exchange. He said that he had expressed the government's ideas on the subject la his Bar-le-Luc and St. German speeches a fortnight ago. The delegation was headed by President Rosslgnol of the national union of combatants, who presented a resolution adopted this morhing by the regional heads of the organization. This resolution set forth that the ex-soldiers considered seven billion francs an impossible sum to pay the Dnlten States and thought that the total should be scaled down. "Great Britain and America, who shared the advantages of the common victory without running the same risks as France." the resolution added, "should not in simple Justice demand from France more than France receives from Germany. "They (the ex-soldiers) will stubbornly oppose all transfers of credit, which simple Justice would not tolerate. They have decided systematically to vote against parliamentarians who accept ratification of the Mellon-Ber-enger and Caillaux-Churchill accords In their present form. They have confidence in the ability of the president of the council to re-establish French finances without recourse, to foreign loans, which would rob France of her political Independence and put her under a guardianship." The premier replied that a formula for an accord would be sought by the fihancial commission, and declared that It was only loyalty tc the country to refrain from making engagements that could not be carried out.
