Of In (jrt.. & — ( A P > II;* lltfe Tfn rnnvi Fall* to Halms*. A change of tactics will be ordered when the scries is resumed tomorrow. Manager Bill McKechnle will turn to Jess Haloes and his fast ball Sunday in a desperate effort to get into the win column. BUI was not managing St. Louis two years ago but he knows that big Jess of PhilHpsbtirg, Ohio, shut out Ihe Yanks in Sportsmans park in 1B26 and helped himself along with a home run. Bill can use a shutout or home run. or both. Going home with two defeats and only two more needed to produce * situation unique in world series history, the SL Louis manager finds himself in a position where something must be done and that quickly. Playing on velvet. Manager Miner Huggins will ponder as he rides to St Louis over his selection of a Sunday pitcher. In a position to take a chance. "Hug" may call on Hanry Johnson young right hander who had a great first year in the American League. Old Grover Alexander, sent out to bring home the bacon aa he did two years ego. was found wanting In the second game of the series and lasted only two and one-third innings, retiring in confusion with a liability of six hits and four bases on balls. Another veteran, Clarence Mlt- r shell, came in when It was too late, to pitch • clever game and the left- handed spltbalter probably wffl be seen against before bats are finally placed in «tcraga for th* winter. With hi? Jar famed control lacking. Old Alex could only call on hts courage to see him through with no assistance from the arm that the ball players say "can hi a dime." he was fighting a losin game from the start. George Plpgras staggered through the first two innings, the Cardinals knotting the count at three-all ia the second Inning, but from the third to the ninth, inclusive, he was never really in danger.— Card Hitters Helpless. Chick Hafey who batted hard and often against National League pitch ing had. no more success agahis Plpgras than he did wtth Hoyt'c puzzlers. The Cardinal slugger has , seen first base only from a dls tance In the first two games. Bot- tomtey was even more Impotent The only thtag he hit was ft pop foul striking oat In his last three turns at bat Babe Ruth, who until yesterday had newer been able to hit Alexander, singled in the third inninc after walking In the f irsi and made tt two nits out of three times at bat by doubling off^Mitcheli, And then to boost hla world aertes strikeout record, he fanned on his last appearance. *•*—* Lou Qehrig was the seccaid day's tfVrwa *»**«» Vii4-4-.c, u !._.

Indianapolis. Ind., Oct 6.~(U.P.) The Indianapolis Indians were within one game of attaining the "little world scries" championship when they took the field against. Rochester of the International League, here today. The Indians' 8 to 4 victory over Rochester here yesterday gave them four of the five games necessary to establish themselves as "Junior champions of the world." Rochester has won only one game and it was considered unlikely they could take four straight from the team that already lias beaten them In four out of five starts.
