The game will start at 11:30, Los Angeles time, and reports will be received by direct wire from the ball park in St. Louis. If you're in town follow every detail of the world's series with The Times announcer. BY IRVING VAUGHAN ST. LOUIS (Mo.) Oct. 6. There was a slightly mournful touch to the welcoming St. Louis gave lt champion uar-dinals when they came back this evening, closely pursued by their cocky, confident, current world's series foes. The town was glad to see the Cards and all that, but those stinging defeats 1 v in the first two games at New York had a depressing effect and there was TOM no comfort for the populace In the thought that what hope remains is confined to so limited a space as the right arm of one hudan. This is Jess Haines, for two uonths the reigning hurler of the Cardinals' staff and the man who will be called on to carry the burden tomorrow when the fall classic is resumed with the third chapter of action. , . If Haines ran come through and the Card attack can show what It hasn't shown so far, the series will be far from over. : But if Haines fails as did Sher-, del and Alexander, the Yanks ' ' may sweep up the event In four straight, at most five, and thus the American League will be able to feci it has atoned for what the same Cardinals did to its prestige in the fall of 1926. ZACHAIiY DUE TO HURL Although there is some doubt about his choice because of his two straight victories, and he is in a po-nition of being able to gamble 'a bit, Mite Huggins, boss of the healthiest bunch of cripples that ever engaged in world's titular toil, probably will come up with old Tom Zachary tomorrow. Huggins could very well take a chance on Fred Heimach or even his kid right-hander. Henry Johnson, and either selection might get away with the assignment successfully, but the fact that Zachary is long in harness and has been through the world's series mill are the factors by which the Yank smef will be guided. Huggins probaoly won't be influenced by the fact that Zachary never has had much luck in the St. Louis park. If Ilajncs is to do to the Yank iJonters what his predecessors ;n battle failed to do, it will be . because of the functioning of a "screw ball," so known because of the dazzling twists it takes in its course of flight. Haines can burn 'em through if he chooses and can hook 'em when the occasion warrants, but his cliief item is that tantalizing slow cne that, if properly controlled, can dazzle the best of batters. And besides this seems to be a scries of slow-balling so Haines will be conducting himself according: to the privilege style. To date the Cardinals as batters have shown nothing but this can bo attributed not to weakness, but to the fact that they were unlucky enough to run smack into two pitchers who were enjoying rare tlay,3. Hoyt's three-hit triumph in th3 opener at New York was almost the outstanding achievement of his career. Pipgrass has seldom pitched as he pitched yesterday. If he hadnt been given a big lead he might never have lasted half the game. Out in froiri by a big (Continued on Page 2, Column 5) ARMY GIVEN GRIDIRON SCARE BY METHODISTS, SCORE, 14 -13 BY EDWARD J.

WISCONSIN Noire Dame Conquered in Gridiron Battle by Fighting Badgers, Score 22 to 6 BY PAUL R. MICKELSOX v Associated Press Sports Writer MADISON (Wis.) Oct. 6. After more than a decade of struggle, a Big Ten team has finally conquered Notre Dame on the gridiron.

Y.) Oct. 6. W Argentina's bid for world polo supremacy failed here today when a swift - riding, United States four won, 13 to 7, taking two of the three games. Unlike the two previous contests, play today was onesided, one way or the other, after the first periods. The United States team scored as TOMMY Hitchcock. it pleased during the -fourth chukker, scoring five times and running up a seven-goal lead. The visitors, after scoring (Continued on Page 2, Column 8) play on a forward pass from Thurle Thornton to John Flanagan. John Dalquest converted the try for point. The small crowd was given a thrill in the third period when both teams nearly scored touchdowns on a single play. Washington pushed the ball to within a yard of the Whitman eoal 51nc and Chuck Carroll was called upon to put It over. Carroll ploughed over the line but the ball slipped out of his hnnds as h iell and Haliback Harshbarger of the Missionary bclwxtl seooiied it up and raced the full length of the field to the Washington goal two Huskies right on his heels.
