ISy SCOTTY KESTON b NEW YORK, (.V) -- Babe Ruth 'iewod. the coming major league jaseball races from a bunker along the St. Albans golf course Thursday and predicted the New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals would win by at least a mashie shot. "You can't beat that Yankee power," said the Babe. "They've got it from top to bottom. They -nay not win by as many games ..; they did last year, but they should win."

"I never say anything about a ball player's personal affairs." The Cleveland Indians, whose dexterity in dodging the American league pennant somehow astonishes him, are "the team the Yankees have to beat," he said. "How they keep from winning I don't know.
