Oct 4.—The 8t Louis Cardinals have a great ball club, and should win the world series, per- baps In five games. It would not surprise me to see them take four out of five from the New York Yankees who are most unfortunately crippled by Injuries. Naturally. I am- a National League fan. My heart and Interest are the circuit, but tula year I can see nothing except the prospect of i clean cut, convincing victory over the American league champions. My club met the Cardinals 22 :imes this year, and we know how most important factor in a world series, favors 8t. Louis by as much as two to one. I should say. There is no use In belittling the possibility of a Yankee batting rampage, and when it comes It Is one of the hardest things In baseball to stop. I think, however, that the Cardinals have Just what U needed to stop it this year, even if it fthowa up. The chances of the Yankees putting their full offense (strength Into the field are alight Indeed. On the other hand, the Cardinals will nave the team which fought ita way to the top In one of the greatest of National League pennant races, and had the stuff to stay there. Alexander, Halnes, Sherdel, Rhem and Mitchell, after what they ahow- cd this season, should be able to tie the weakend Yankees into knota. A St Louis victory seems inevita- fi; a victory in five games at ths outside is what I look for. SPORT TABLOIDS -™ T ^»| BSVIU*V\; iiirmt-i are - Pitching, always the any selections LaFayette, Ind..
