Th* IKK world series, which ended «o abruptly at 8port«niAn r s Par* y««t*rdRy afternoon with the 7 to 3 Victory of the new champions, might easily have passed on into baseball history as one of the worst and most farcical every played. The St. Ixmia Cardinals, who entered thR post eesiKsn engagement strong favorites to defeat a supposed crip- plstl opponent, did their best to make it so . Their failure waa even more startling, more complete and mpra dismal, than that of the Pittsburgh Pirmtes, who went down to defeat in four straight games before theso same Yankees a year ago The series was in a fair way to degenerate into one of the saddest Jokes in the history of the national pssUme. Rath Whole Show. Babe Ruth changed all that. Sln- glehandcd, he was a ball team, nay. a whole ball game, in himself. He was Just about a whole world series. There wa» only one thing that could have saved this sad "serious," and the Babe had it. Superlative baseball offensive, and defensive, a brave display of team spirit and a spectacular burst of individual effort, the gay spirit of a boy when it was appropriate, and the grim spirit of relentless fight when it was needed—Babe Ruth had >all these ready in the emergency. The New York Yankees are speeding homeward to triumph, planning ways and means to get rid of the largest share of world scries booty erer divided by a winning ball club. The St. Louis Cardinal* are fig- uratiTOly licking their wounds, repeating their alibis and finding what solace they can in some such platitude as the fact that the best club won. But, as the song goes: "But when all is said and done, ^There is really only one—" And that's the Babe. No* Like Casey. A oold-recital of the records whJch Ruth assisted in making hardly paints an adequate picture of the bi« fellow's contribution to the 1828 series. To appreciate Babe's part, you hid to see him up there at th* Plato yesterday, clapping his hands and doffing his cap in mock apnr«d*tion of the spirited efforts t.(rm in!o th diffwnr* C's*?y P.TK! tra.i; f^al- «f» Arw4hfT immortal sky of noon, «nd Rtiih othf-r towr ft»t •f, tb* perfect uttst* broken irp sb> . j thp victim of irrwistibS" ] bata, tried to win *n anrtiment imf, his ehnnw in *i n th* That «•«« t,h«» "jf-on- of tit* pRrne.

And then see him a moment later, when the argument has been won—as baseball arguments always are, if you stop to think about it—toy the umpires and the game is on. Casey at the bat Seeing what hp thought w*s ft jHnce to slip n third strike Ruth, 8herd?l shot back return without allowing Ume to elapse according to Amer ican Lesgxie rules. The ball may ©r may not haw been another perfect •strike, but Pfirman refused to allow the pitch to get into the record, calling time. One of the loudest and most picturesque arguments that «vr ta- terrupU'd a world series game ensued. Sherdel put everything he had into the argument, and lost When he had to go back and pitch, he was lost, and the Yankees knocked him out of the box before BIO McKechnle could say "Alexander." It was a sorry substitute for the Alexander of old who came sauntering from the bull pen to relieve Sherdel. The fact of the matter is that old "Pete," once called "The Great," is Just about through with big league baseball. So is Rabbit Maran- viUe. So are several other Cardinals, The team which got out in front of a frantic National League pennant chase and stayed there is no ball club for any fan's money today. despite what it did during the regular season. Finished Alex. Alex finished 4he game, and the Yankees finished Alex. Babe Ruth brought hia total of homers for the afternoon to three with another long drive over into Grand Avenue. That last blow won the heart* of the fans, the same fans who had cheered the Babe at the start, and then had hurled pop-bottles at him after the incident of the seventh inning. To top off hisjlcy'a work. Ruth made an amazing running one-hand catch of Frankia Frisch's foul drive a sharply hit ball no erne with pled kriee~ewr should" have started for. The final picture one carried away from the game as the fans poured onto the field and eddied to tumultuous waves acrooso diamond, was one of the Babe, still sprinting down past the third base boxes holding aloft the ball and rosrimr with laughter. The Cardinals, both beaten and fiitg m* **»» with tt» «f Tft» ttml se»« vm tt to & mmny nf Ms» tnM» tit* to thnfr IMMMI ts A disgraced, may come back to a fighting mall blue In another National League pennant race.
