Manager of the Cincinnati Reds (Written For The United Press) New York, Oct. 0.—Without detracting a whit from the fine pitching of Walte Hoyt nnd the timely batting of the New York Ynnkees, the St. Louis Cardinals are still my pick to win the worlds championship. Sherdel pitched a Rnme which would have been a winning one nine times out of ten. He ran up against Hojrt when the latter was nt the peak of form and he tried to get a curve ball past Bob Meusel which went into the stands instead. That was the story of the opening game. , I look for "Pete" Alexander to I turn in a victory in his first start against the American Leaguers, and once the teams get to Bt Louis the Ude of battle should turn definitely in favor of the Cardinals. The only change in my opinion about the outcome of the series is that it now may take six games • school football (warriors to Princeton tomorrow for jthe acid test. Cap- ;tain Schuneman |and Russell are ,the only two vct- ;erans on the team. However under the able coaching ------ of Ted Beheld, as- SCHUNEMAN fclsted by Coaches Ead,es and Whaley, the green avid untried material of the local school looks to have the stuff. If the team wins fifty percent of its games this season it can be considered a good season but those who have seen the boys in their dally workouts at Community Athletic park" feel certain that they will win the majority of before the Cards ar* declared cham- ptona of the baseball world. I had looked for them to win within five. Watching The Stars (By United Press) Babe Ruth—Got two doubles and a single in four trips, scoring two runs. Lou.Qehrig — Got a double und single In four trips, driving in two runs. Chick Hafey—Failed to hit safely In four trips, striking out twice Jim Bottomley—Hit a home run and single and walked once in four times up, scoring the Cardinals only run and making two or their three hits. A large crowd of local rooters will follow the team to Princeton tomorrow and they will b« doing their best along; the sidelines to cheer the local boys to victory. Princeton lost a game last week to Morris by a forfeit. The Princeton team looked pretty good In this game which was played at Morris and on their home field and with another week's workout they should put up a very hard, game against Sterling. If the boys only do their best that will be enough. They have the plays, they are in condition and now it all depends on how well they can execute them under lire Go get 'em Sterling. Baltimore, Oct. 5.—<u.P.)— For the first time in four years ' the" semifinal round of the professional golf champlonsnip opened today minus the swaggering figure of Walter Hagen. For four years Hagen has been champion of these men who capitalize on golf. But yesterday Leo Dlegel of White Plains, took the measure of Sir Walter and defeated him 2 and 1, after a thrilling match which was followed by a great gallery. Hagcn was five down at the end of the first nine, out receovercd his stride somewhat in the later rounds. The principle Interest today is in the match between Gene Sarazen, the only former champion remaining in the contest and Dlegel. In the other semi-final tnntch Horton Smith of Joplin, Mo., will play Al Espinosa of Geln Cove, 111. INDIANAPOLIS IS WINNER ONCE MORE Brar ?!or!rs from No'r?
