(Ph-St. Louis won the hottest National League pennant fight In twenty years by the Cubs' 6-to-2 victory over the Giants at New York today about one hour before the Cardinals made assurance doubly sure by defeating the Braves here, 2 to 1. To take their only previous National League flag two years ago, the Cardinals had to fight until ' Friday, with a Sunday finish, but this year's contest held on one day longer. The 1928 battle will go down hi National League records rinking second only to that of 1908 among all the modern campaigns. The Cubs ot twenty years ago finished the regular season with 150 games played and In a tie with the Giants, who had engaged in the same number. The Cubs then Invaded New York the day after the regular finish and won from the Giants by 4 to 3 In a play-off of the tie game caused by Merkle's famous failure to touch second. SCORE OFF DELANEY The Cards bunched hits on Art Delaney in the first inning for all their runs and never molested Ed Brandt or Art Greenfield who followed. Willie Sherdel pitched seven Innings for the new champions and then gave way to Flint Rhem. . The Braves got their only run off JSherdel ln 4he seventh. The victory of the Cardinals and che defeat of the Giants increased McKechnie's lead to three full games with only one more to play for each contender.

The Bruins suffered consider able pain, too, both mentally and physically during the contest, which was a "knock 'em down and drag 'em out" battle most of the way.

The Bruins at times looked as though they were going to make a runaway of the game, only to have the Wildcats claw them away from their goal line with the wildest kind of battling. Old Lady Luck also stepped In several times yesterday and gave the Wildcats a few breaks that saved their bacon when it was almost a certainty that the Bruins were about to go out in front. On one occasion on the third period especially CHIT Simpson' fumbled the ball on the Arl- sona 8-yard line and it was scooped up by Bill Hargis. Wildcat fullback, who ran it out the danger zone.

The California Bears scored a 22-to-0 victory over Santa Clara University today in the first game of the of season for both teams."' A rec-o r d-breaking first-day throng of 40,000 p e r-sons were in the California Memorial Stadium. The new California team was slow in starting and did not score until the second period. It was clearly o u t- 3 t BEN LOfA played by Santa Clara In the first quarter and was unable to make a single first down, while the Broncos made three. Santa Clara did not threaten to score, however, and did not approach the California goal line at OXY WINS DOUBLE-HEADER FROM JAYSEE FOOTBALLERS Occidental's 1928 football machine displayed plenty of power yesterday In winning a twin bill against the Santa Ana and Pasadena Junior College elevens at the Rose Bowl, Pasadena, taking the first contest at 19-7 and the second at 40-0. Kienholz's first-strong crew was out to prove its claims to the Southern Conference championship this year In . its second fracas egainst the Bulldog eleven. Mainly because of a strong line which the Bulldogs failed to pierce but on two occasions for first downs, combined with one of the sweetest back-field quartets in the circuit, the Tigers romped through the second game with comparative ease, and scored at wllL In the first few minutes of the first quarter, Oxy recovered Bulldog fumble, and turned this Into score after Ward Schweli-er, half, gained some twenty yards In line bnrks, and Capt. John Iberhart, full, plunged over the line. Several momenta later came another Oxy tally when a kick by the J. C. team was blocked with an Ony recovery tln Kocelle plunged hit 4.' S any time during the contest. The Bears opened upon the first play of the second quarter carrying the ball to Santa Clara's 3-yard line. Two passes from Lorn to Eisan were chiefly responsible for the advance. Santa Clara held, however, and the Bear chance was gone, but only for the moment. . California shoved Santa Clara back up against the goal line after an exchange of punts and Philips, California captain, broke the Ice by scoring on a 16- yard run after he had recov--ered Machado's fumble. The) Bears scored again in this period with Bennie Lorn doing the greater part of the work. He carried the ball 53 yards In three attempts, scoring at last on a twisting 41-yard run. Cock-burn converted. Santa Clara showed more strength in the third quarter and the Bears (Continued on Page 1, Column 4) way down the field near the J. C. goal posts where Jack Schwclzcr, quarter, tore over the line on an off-stackle play. On these two occasions. Jack Schwelser failed to convert for the extra tallies. The second and fourth quarters saw the Tigers fairly well held back by their foes. One tally in the second frame by Capt Ebernart boosted the score to 19 for the Bengals. In the final quarter both .teams failed to make much progress toward the posts. The ball remained much In midfleld In the final quarter. The third quarter saw the sensational strength of the home team. Ward Schweizer on every run made at least Ave yards as did his brother, Jack, while Eberhart and Ro-zelle could hardly be stopped. It was hard to figure Just who gained the most yardage in this game. One pass, Rozelle to Ward Schweizer. netted one tally: a fumble recovered by Schursch, Oxy guard, was turned Into another score after the gains of Schweizer and Ro-zeCe.

As such it hardly ap- pealed to the appetite and there will . be plenty of fans to tell you that the Trojans looked terrible.
