White Sox Bump Off Cubs In Annual City Series CHICAGO, Oct. 11 (UP)—The American League closed the bocks 'on the baseball season with another record today and (lie credit goes, not to' the powerful Yankees who almost collided tile record market this year, but to tile fourth- place White Sox. The billing So* visually take to the National second League Cubs, their wealthy city rivals, but they routed the Cubs last, night, 1-1, ill the seventh and final game of their city series, retaining a city title they have kept, in the American League since 1930. It was the thin! straight victory for the Sox and was played under the Comiskey Park before 14,700. Tata! attendance for the seven games was 122.818, Ted Lyons, While Sox veteran, allowed five hits to win the Bamc[ Hie secciid victory of the scries. His leaminates collecled 13 hits from Earl Whilehiil, Claude seau and Vance Page. The Sox have won the city title 16; times, the Cubs six.

Howard Hughes' Is Injured In Shop Accident LITTLE ROCK, Ark,, Oct. 12 — Little Rock High School's Tigers, defending state foctball champions, were deep in gloom today as the result of an accident In the school's woodworking shop yesterday which necessitated amputation of one of Howard Hughes' Aligns. A speed .saw mangled the second finger en hi.s left hand necessitating ampulallon at the second Joint. It also damaged the tip of the Index finger on the same linnd. Clyde Van Sickle, Tiger Conch, described the injury lo Hughes as n Joss loo big lo describe, He added lhat Hughes, in wins over Ben- Ion, Shrevcport and Blytlievlllc, 'lad done most, of Ihe passing nnd kicking and was in a cta&'by himself as a ball carrier. Hughes salii Ihe accident hnd merely "postponed" his gridiron :nrcer. "The doctor said I'd be out for three weeks, no later than n month.

Wriglcy Admits He's Seeking Successor For Cub Manager Hartnefl ny STI-.Vli s'NIBEIl ™rl rress Slalr ('"n-fs , Irc , 1 «CACiO, Oct. 12.-PW1 K. Wriglcy, owner of Die Chicago Onus, Indicated t:0ay his agent's are looking for a man 10 take over the holiest, managerial seal in baseball. Wriglcy voiced displeasure at iiiwe of ins (earn to finish higher than fcurtli place in Ihe National League and its collapse in the oily series against Ihe White Sox, then lcl simply: "I've- reached no conclusion on whether Gabby Hartnctt will be manager ajfaln next year" ^T , t j le y? ul «f"» magnate admitted his feelings now are those cf n disappointed baseball fan and that, he will "wait a few days to cool olf a little" heroic making any decision. • ' Wriglcy reportedly was sccMii- « man outside the Cnb organfaui:,! to rebuild , is club. Leading possibility for the job during summer speculation was Frnnkic Piisch who has signed lo manage the Pittsburgh Pirates. Als: mentioned were Prank (Lefty) O'Doul of -San Francisco and Jack LeHvelt of Seattle, successful mnnngers In the Pacific Coast League. Hartnctt replaced Charlie Cliimm as manager of the Cubs in July, 1938, anil led them to a pennant This season the Cubs never were a threat. Hmtnetl and Wrlglcy never have been as close as Ihe Grinim-Wrig- lcy combination. Hartnett received Ills appointment only after Grimm had insisted to Wriglcy that lie was the best man for Ihe job. Rumors of dissatisfaction among Hie players reached a new high this summer. The Dizzy Dean slashing eplscde in a New York hotel brought several stories into the open although the actual injury to Dizzy's left arm had nothing to do with baseball. In regard lo Dean, Wrigley also appeared undecided. Diz has talked over 19-10 terms with Charles (Boots) Weber, the club's vice president, but settled nothing. One report said Dean had asked for another contract of $20,000 a year and had received an offer of half that figure. Diz indicated he would ask to be placed on the voluntary retired list rather than accept such n salary cut.
