PAGE 'BELIEVES •TO FOR TERRY SLVTHEVILLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Graysou Finds Rupperl Rides Too Strong foi Giant Club BY HAKUY GRAYSOX Sports Editor, NKA Service NEW YORK, Sept. 34. — There- Is every reason to - susjwct thn the Yankees will ovei'ixnver the Giants in the world series. The American League entry is lire fust club In the history of the majors with five hitters who have driven In more than 100 runs each. -They are the Incomparable Lou Gelnlg with 144, Joe OlMnggio with 120, Tony Lazzeri with 110, Bill Dickey with 105, and George Selkirk, the man who did a fntr kfnd of Job of replacing Babe Uulh, with 100. In the entire National Leac'ue there arc only six hitters who have belted in loo or mote runs. Tlic nnppcrt Rifles could come close lo matching an all-star array of senior leaguers picked solely on their ability to manufacture markers. Only one Giant .has. swatted In 500 runs—the quiet and efficient Mel oil, who has accounted for 130 odd. Next to Oil on the Polo Ground- era'.-side come Hank Lciber with <i8, Gus Maiicnso with 63, Joe Moore with 58. 'Travis Jackson with 53, Sam Leslie with 52. Jimmy Ripple and Burgess Whlleheml with 40 each, and Dick Bnrtrll and Bill Terry with 88 apiece. Lciber hns participated in fin games, Leslie in 113, Ripple in US, and Terry 75. It is obvious that there arc spots In the Giant, 1 :' baiting order where Yankee pitchers can catch their breath. Break Nearly n Dnyen Illg League Itccorils Tills Is not true when Cornel Rupperl's outfit is on .the tiring line. Frankie Crosettl, batting .SB7, Jias smacked in 75 runs. Jafco Powell, in 130 contests with Washington and New York. Ls hitting .300 and has driven In T4 runs. Red Rolfc is hitting .304 and has batted in 75 rims.

Joe McCrir- ty heads a club: thnt this .season has shattered nearly a dozen major league records, it clinched the pennant earlier limn any other chib"in'• history. It has hit more home runs than any other, more extra base lilts, and scored nigre runs.. It- h to 'offset Murderers' now thai Bill Terry seriously is contemplating using Lciber In cen- lerficld regardless of who is pitching for the Yankees. With the exception of Olt, Lctbcr Is the only ical long hitter on tho Stone- I ham payroll. Ripple has kept Lei- bcr out of the lineup a good share of the time since the redhead from the Pennsylvania coal mines got his chance when some- tiling got in the large Arizonan's eye in July. Ripple has played inspiring ball, bill doesn't smile the sphere over the hills and far away as docs Lciber, and a recent long-range 'hitting splurge by the blond set Terry to thinking. Yankees I\Iore Dangerous in Tolo Grounds Terry realizes that the heavier Yankee guns will be more dangerous In the Polo Grounds than in their own stadium, even though the new right field bleachers now yawn for home runs there. There 'is no screen in froiit : of these bleachers. Tlic old screen, which slcod from 10 to 15 feet in front of the n cw stands has been torn down. At the moment, the Yankee management doe> not intend lo haver a screen there. II is farther from home plate lo bolh right and left fields in the House That Ruth Built thai at the Polo Grounds.
