I1s- i ! I i A En Route to St. Louis, Oct. 8 THE BIG LETDOWN Alter the big blowoff yesterday, the Cardinals looked as if they'd all been nabbed trying to pass bogus $10 bills. Perhaps that is as good a way to sum it up as any. The champs had been getting by with some "counterfeit" pitching a la Brazle, and that they came so near to putting the deception across made that big denouement so much harder to take when the Yankees staged it in the eighth inning. Brazle went the way those "pulse-ball" pushers always go. A couple of bad plays, and then the ducks are on the pond, and somebody sticks in the first solid basehit, and the dam bursts. Billy Johnson's triple had that authentic ring, end it ripped the veil from Mr. Brazle's hocus-pocus. THE STRONGARMS FEEL BAD, TOO To come right down to it, that soft-ball slinging makes more enemies than Hitler. Nobody minds being beaten by a real "stuff" pitcher. But Brazle Right when the Yankees were in the throes of their misery at the hands of awful Alpha yesterday, Nick Etten fanned ingloriously on a dinky curve. "Omigosh," sighed a veteran writer, "Lou Gehrig must be spinning in his grave!" Then Lindell was called out on a third strike that seemed to hesitate on its way up to the plate. "A little more of this," said our Tommy Holmes, "and Babe Ruth will be grabbing a bat and dashing out there screaming, 'Let me at the bum.' " That is what these soft-ballers do to you. Rip Sewell, the eephus thrower, drove people crazy this season. Jim Tobin does it. Tom Zachary used to be a champ at baiting the foe. But the funny thing about Brazle is that the Cardinals were very unhappy about him, too. If Alpha had gotten by throwing those cantaloupes of his, he'd have been a smart pitcher. But he was beaten, and so now he is Just a "one-shot" counterfeit who cannot be attempted again. Particularly to those strong young men in Redblrd suits who can throw that American potato at high velocity. Ernie White, for instance LANIER'S A GMBLE, TOO Boy, how I crave a chance in this series," said the blond left-hander last evening. As the artist who flung the fanciest effort against the Yankees last season, White would seem entitled to It, too. "Maybe I'll get it in the second game in St. Louis." Ernie said, hopefully. But certainly Southworth isn't In a position to gamble now, and White, because of his lack of action this season, would be a wild gamble. The experts would not be surprised to see Southworth . shoot Mort Cooper, his one game bunaay. That would give the moon-faced Missourian his three days' rest. And Max Lanier, though he pitched well in the opener, would be a gamble, although less of a gamble than White. Lanier is always making that mistake that lets you down. You could see White knew he didn't figure to get a start; but he was boiling, inwardly, because a softy like Brazle had had the chance. And had failed. That was what hurt. , CARDS BITTER, IMPATIENT Big reaction of the Brooklyn contingent was, "Those bums don't play like that all season against us!" Each of the Yankee victories has been handed to 'em by the Cards. On the first day it was the Lanier-Cooper battery gum-up after the wild pitch. Yesterday it was two errors by Kurowski and another by Harry Walker "that hurt. There's a feeling that Walker is "babying" the ball in the outfield, trying so hard not to be the goat and zany he is supposed to be, that he is going to wind up as Just that. Walker looked like an accident going some place to happen when we talked to him. "I try to block the ball and play it safe," he groaned, "and you see what happens!" He was full of misery. So was Kurowski, a solid citizen and one of the team spark plugs who dropped the Sanders throw to third when Lindell came in like a ton of brick, and they knocked noggins. That was the eighth-inning break of the game. Whitey was bitter at himself, and on top of that he had a screaming head, from the collision. Yes, the Cardinals were peeved at themselves. They were silent, bitter. Not that they were "whupped." as the Coopers would say. But that they felt it was such a long , time to wait until Sunday to "turn it on them Yankees when we get to St. Louis." , I still think they will! Series Fads HVAM IAI.

WAR BONDS AND STAMPS j Ragged Support and Cardinals Chance to GRID SEERS SEE DISASTER Michigan, Even Without Spinner, Figures to Jolt Notre Dame By RALPH TROST Did you happen to notice that the football experts were in good form last week? Picking 21 out of 25 winners was practically a cinch. Just like in the good old days when all the Bigs took on the Littles for the first couple of games and only the blind couldn't see who was likely to win. The surprises of last Saturday " 1 were strictly relative. Few suspected that Notre Dame was so well stocked that it could roll up more than 50 points on Georgia Tech, and, on that record, will be favored against Michigan tomorrow, Still fewer thought that Army had so much talent that it could have run In Us third string against Colgate without the Red Raiders knowing about it. Who supposed that Princeton was so strong or was it that Columbia's so weak? And that Clark Shaughnessy, one of the men really responsible for the "T," couldn't get enough talent t Pitt to make a good show of it? Pitkin's Will Be Tough That was last week or the week before. A new Saturday's coming up one that smacks more of recent seasons when there were some real shocks handed out.' And picking winners is no cinch. The experts won't be batting over .800 on Sunday morning. About the toughest to figure Is the Notre Dame - Michigan em- broglio. Both seem to be loaded to the gunwales, and neither has yet been called upon for its true best. They're predicting the Wolverines' defeat because it lacks a real spinning1 fullback. What with the Irish due to strut their stuff in the East, we should be rooting for them against Michigan. lt d be nice to have Leahy's team come to town unbeaten. But we have a hunch that even without a spinner, Michigan's too tough. Another nice business for the gues.ser Is Navy-Duke. Atop everything eUe, It's a night game. The best way to pick this one Is to assume that Navy has to eat more carrots, perforce, and should play better at night. That's as good a reason as the records and the rumors offer. Pirked as Standoff A pleasant little guessing nightmare Is that Vale-Columbia fracas. Yale's injury-riddled. So much so It's had to shelve Us "T" formation stuff. Columbia can't be as fuddled as against Princeton. Sounds like a Mexican standoff. That Penn-Dartmouth game Is another prize package. Dartmouth, a month ago, would have been any one's guess, but not now. Here's a game that promises to be a honey with Penn winning. After lending an ear to Colgate men. a fellow could go on record two ways. First, that Army's going to whale the tar out of Temple. Secondly, the Raiders, realizing In the first five minutes of the Army game that there was little hope, saved enough to beat Penn State. The tales they tell of Army! One can pick out a Bertelli of Notre Dame, a Daley of Michigan, a Titus of Holy Cross to rave about, but when you talk about Army it's strictly Team! Team! Team!" All three teams! Crystal Ball Stuff The seers, we hear, are picking Pitt to get going against opposition of Us own class, West Virginia: Harvard to beat Worcester Tech: Coast Guard to make Holy Cross know it's been in a ball game-even though the nauticals lose; Oklahoma to beat Texas regardless of rumors to the contrary ; every one, including Indiana, to whip Nebraska this year: Georgia Tech and Georgia Pre-Flight to fight it out to a 3030 tie 'or something like that: Brown to beat Tufts; Wisconsin and Illinois fail to score on one another (this is probably libelous): Southern Cal to beat St. Mary's Pre-Flight: Cornell to clip Princeton's Dave Marshall fc Co. Its possible, all of this, but the guessing Isn't as easy as last week. Among the other games slated for Saturday, L. S. U.'s kids ihow Huey Long would shudder to see 'em play Texas Aggies which seems to be stacked. A cavalry college sucked? Taint legal. Purdue plays Camp Grant, Rochester plays R. P. I..

FLETCHER CENSURED FOR GOING ON FIELD Coach Art Fletcher of the Yanks almost became casualty in yesterday's sixth inning at the Stadium. With Hank Borowy, who made his team'a first run. on third bate when Danny Litwhiler made a spectacular catch of Tuck Stainback's foul, Fletcher had to ran almost on the playing field to avoid being hit by Litwhiler throw. I mpire Beans Reardon censured Fletcher for that. "Where d'ya expect me to go?" w Fletcher's query t Bean. Lil' Bill's Hit Churns Maelstrom; Dickey Ties Ruth's Series Mark It took Little Bill Johnson's rousing grand slam triple in the eighth-inning Yankee rally to wake tip the record crowd of 69.990 fans at the Stadium. The welkin really rang as Harry Walker chased the rolling white ball to the left center bleacher wall. All the crowds here have been like that forgetting to root their favorites home. The Series was Just a spectacle and nothing over which to get unduly excited. There's no underdog. The Cardinals are the champions of the world and ripe for the American butchers, who dearly love to tear down those they have put upon a pedestal. But the Yanks have won so often in the past themselves that it didn t seem worth bursting any tonsils. The vast throng broke the record set in the fourth game with the Cardinals last Fall at the Stadium by 88 paying customers, but the gross receipts were 40 shy of the 1942 take at the turnstiles. Which offers a nice problem in higher mathematics or something. Bill Dicaey tied Babe Rath s mark M harlng played in 38 Wiwli .eriro gamrs with h same elab.

Give Boys Credit, Advises Yank Boss Silent on Johnson's Hitting. Afraid To Jinx Him Picks Russo Next By HAROLD C. Bl'ItR "Give the boys the credit," said the laconic Manager Joe McCarthy, unconsciously striking on the keynote of Yankee success. "I didn't do anything. Bill Johnson hit the triple. I didn't even go to bat." McCarthy's little cubbyhole of an office was crowded with newspa)crmen after the Yankee victory In the third game of the World Series. Way had been made for George Ruppert and a party oi friends to squeeze in and the part owner of the club and brother of Colonel Jake had offered his congratulations. "Well, keep 'em hitting anyway in St. Louis, Joe,'' added Mr. Ruppert. "I ll tell 'em, George," promised the manager who is too modest to wear a number on his uniform for identification. McCarthy has always been like that giving the boys the credit. Russo Gets Nod , "I'm going to pitch Russo Sunday," he said, turning to the working press, "if I don't switch to Chandler. But risht now It's Russo." He went on to Johnny Lindell's JJII4I1K iWVWBII OlIMC IUIU tiling J Kurowski at third base that was the break of the game. ' Sure, Lin- ! dell went in hih and hard.

And I got up and claimed a foul" "He didn't slide, he Jumped." said Kurowski. still stunned, down the hall, "but there'll be other plays in this series." Manager Billy Southworth was lookin? forward to Sunday, too. 'One game won't break up this GETS HIS MAN Walker Cooper, Cardinal catcher, retired trying to Steal second base.

"I've got my Sunday pitcher picked, but I'm not going to announce him until we get 10 St. Louis. We're not down. I can't emphasize that too much." Danny 'Cured' Him To make a last cut-back to the Yankee room where there was singing and horseplay under the shower. Hank Borowy was happy as a kid with his first Christmas toy. "I couldn't get my curve to break right until after Litwhiler knocked in their two runs with a single in the fourth. Litwhiler hit a fast ball. After that everything went all right. It felt good to beat those guys after what they did to me last Fall. But every young pitcher feels that way about his first series victory, I expect." To Keep on Pressure If It was Borowy s first triumph, Nick Etten's safetv in the eighth-inning rally was the big Yankee's first hit. "That first one," murmured Nick, making a wry face. "It's the toughest to get, but now that I've got it I'm going to get more.'' confidently. That, too, is the spirit of the Yankees to keep on the pressure until something busts. im thplr defensive Dlav at Snorts- mans Park, St. Louis, Sunday if they are to stay in the Series. They have made eight errors in three games. No team has ever won a Series with eight misplays chalked against it except the 1932 Yankees, and they had Ruth. Gehrig. Tonv Lazzeri and other home-run clouters to offset their mistakes afield. Walker in center field for the National Leaguers has been having trouble finding the handle on ground balls.

Another Yankee javee broke into the box score Snuffy Stirnweiss. who laid down the bunt that set in motion Johnnv Lin-ol! s collision w ith Whitey Kurowski at third base. Manager Billy Southworth sent up Ken O'Dea to hit for Whitey in the ninth. Kurowski was so badly shaken up. Lefty Gomez, wearing spectacles, was again among those present. He kept scanning the skies above the Stadium for another visit from the Flying Fortresses that flew so low over the park opr.rna r!av. ThT en' enme too close for Gomez.i-BVKIL Lindell's Charge Into Kurowski Turning Point By TOMMY HOLMES Staff Correspondent of the Brooklyn Eagle ' En route to St. LouLs, Oct. 8 The World Series rolled west today with New York Yankees celebrating a 2-to-l edge for that three-day business in the Bronx and the Cardinals of old St. Louis mad enough the aisles of this choo-choo train. The largest crowd in World Series history 69,990 souls- saw the American League champs get the bulge because Billy Southworth's St. Louis swifties beat themselves. That is something that happens very rarely. For example, our Brooklyn Dodgers for two solid ears have sat around waiting hopefully but in vain for the Redbirds to do something like that. Today, there is no question whatever about the unluckst man in the World Series to date. He is Alpha Brazle, the lean and hungry lefthander out of Oklahoma, beaten by the combination of ragged support and the breaks after dazzling the Yankees for seven innings of yesterday's game. Yanks Whiff Air From the standpoint of stuff. Brazle isn't a great pitcher. Technically, I suppose that you'd call him a fastball pitcher who isn't very fast. Among other things, some of them unprintable, that A. B. has been called by enemy batsmen. Is the term "cunny-thumb." That means he's a tricky workman with tlie gift of getting the ball over the plate at odd moments when the batter is wondering what the wife Is cooking for dinner or working out an abstract problem in ethical conduct. He accomplishes this mainly bv a variety of deliveries, some of them faster than others. For seven Innings he did a remarkable job of making the Yankee hitters swing while off balane. They swung and cussed, then swung and cussed some more. There Is one thing you'll notice about pitchers of the Brazle type. Other pitchers normally poor hittersare less puzzled by what a gent like Brazle throws than normally good hitters. That Is because pitchers, guileless souls, merely cut at what they see while the other fellows are concentrating on hitting what they think the slicker is going to throw. Borowy Started It It was bad support that beat Brazle yesterday but it was this other factor that started him off. In the sixth Inning. Hank Borowy, the ex-Fordham Ram on the mound for the Yanks, doubled to left. Later he scored when Whitey Kurowskf kicked a slow- bounding ball with two out. And Johnny Lindell. whose single started the eighth-inning fireworks, is a reformed pitcher as of this season. Lindell continued to scond when Harry Walker booted his hit around in center field. Snuffy Stirnweiss. batting for Borowy. bunted and Ray Sanders made a great play getting the ball over to Kurowski at third in time to retire Lindell. A Noggin Did It But Lindell was not retired. He charged in hard and his head came in violent contact with the skull of Mr. Kurowski. The dazed third baseman dropped the ball. That was the break of the ball game and If it turns out to be the turning point of the series, jou might say the Yankees won bv a head. And then, of course, duck. Stirnweiss got to second on Stalnbacks flv when Danny Litwhiler threw to the plate and an intentional pass to Frankie Crn-settl filled the bases. Then Bill Johnson, Yankee hitting hero of the series, tripled to left center, emptying said bases. Walker, incidentally, was something less than sensational playing Johnson's hard drive. From that point, the Redbirds couldn't get well. Spud Krist relieved Brazle after Keller walked COMPOSITE BOX SCORE OF CARDINAL Klfin. 2I Wtlkrr, ct Mueial rf - -w.

The first two games reached the men in recapitulation, but the soldiers complained of the Inadequacy of the broadcasts. According to the Mutual Network, which carries the series broadcasts, sponsored by the Gillette Safety Razor Company, General Eisenhower is reported 19 have asked the War Department to arrange for complete play-by-play to reach the men. To get the account to the soldiers and still adhere to the War Departments rule against com niercial announcements in shortwave broadcasts to fighting men overseas, J. P. Spang, president of Gillette, agreed to eliminate all advertising from the actual play-byplay account, and limit plugs" to between-inuing pauses. Under th: arrangement, it is possible for the soldiers to hear the eame broadcast heard In this country. The Gillette Safety Razor Company Is reportedly paying 1100.000 for broadcast rights to the series plus $150000 for radio time. The remaining games will reach the soldier..
