And he was breezing^ through -the New York team for an easy victory. Walters mowed -Ihe Giants idown without much trouble. He did give up one run — but the Reds collected four. And that was the way they went into the Giants' half of the ninth inning—-Cincinnati Tour, New York one. - If that had been a movie instead of a regular bail game you would have expected to see Bucky. get the first two outs -without any trouble. Well, it wasn't a movie, but Wallers did set the first two men down—and then -he -went after that last out to put the game int/o the books. Boh Seeds — Suitcase Bob, the Iraveling outfielder — faced Walters. The Rhincland pitcher worked carefully on Seeds; twice he nipped tho cornei-s 'for strikes, three times he missed. Then he missed again with the 'last toss — and Seeds walked down to first. Bucky had two strikes—jussl one-away from ending the game—but lie missed, and second baseman "Burgess Whitchcad of tho Giants-<ifi;me in. Whitchead wasn't the .kind ol hitter who piled LI;> impressive batting averages. But he was dangerous—he couldn't, be fooled easily in the clutch. And Walters did r.ot want to take any chances with him, cither. Bucky worked for the corners and tried to tease Whitcy in going ;iftc:' a bad one. Once more I lie count ran out to the •playoff pitch—three balls arid 'two strikes. This time Walters didn't try to cixtch a corner for the last strike th:it would send Iho- customers home and give him the game. Bucky stretched and poured it in —hot and hard. It was right there. Whitehead swung —and the ball came down in tho right field I stands. Seeds Irottcd around to score— Wm'tchcad loped in behind him. And for the second time Walters had lost his man after, coming within one. strike of ending tho game. The Scoreboard, read: Cincinnati four. New York three. Most baseball fans expect even a one run lead to be safe with Iwo out in the ninth and the bases- clear. That's about the time they start moving toward the exits, But they didn't move at that game— Ihc next man up was Mel Ott.

They will be proud not only because of the provision they have made for their families s,nd the savings they have effected, but also in the knowledge that they have made a definite contribution toward the war effort. Every jar cf food you preserve for your family means just that much less you will have to buy—just that much less you will take from the nation's supply, and a saving in your food stamps and your food dollars.

There was more tension than grass in the park as Walters wound up for tho next one—the players and fans watched the pitch boom past Mol—and then every eye shifted to the umpire— ball foul-: Ot:. went slowly down to first. Walters wiped his hand on tho front of his shirt and shook his head—three of them now—.three chances to blow in one strike and win—and ',hree Umes he had lost the chance-. Catcher Harry Darning—Harry the Horse, with his big--bat came in. Walters was furious—he still led anu he meant to,end the game right there—no more of th'ls.'walk- ing and missing the last strike pitch — and Bucky poured two quick strikes past Da'nning. Wallers looked at Ott to keep him fairly close to first. Then he turned and put all he hud into one last .pitch — he threw and Harry swung. Danning's stick met the ball and it took'off like a bomber j heading for Berlin—the pill landed in the left field stands. Mission accomplished for the Giants—they won five to four. And for Bucky Walters, a defeat after four chances to win with u. single strike. Ed McKcever has n frood enough club to beat most of his opponents, but says the Irish will fall before Army." Navy, and Great Lakes. Leahy has discovered in his talks with sports writers and columnists in Hawaii that thousands of miles of ocean only sharpen reader interest in sports. For example, Leahy talked with Bill Kim—who assistant sports editor for the Honolulu Advertiser. And every time Leahy went throuph- a game, play-by-play Kim could supply the exact figures on yardage and plays. . Inevitably Leahy gets around to discussing the defeat (.he Irish suffered, at the hands of Great Lakes last season: Says Leahy: ."It was a tough one to lose, yet as I look back on it, I realize it was for the best.

TKL. 21574 The recent, downfall of ihc St. Louis Browns has caused n.larm- ist-s 10 seek frnniieally Uic I'easoa lor the downward trend. It is only too true that wo have been highly elated over ihe progress of ihc tirownies, and looked forward to the first pennant the club could claim in modern b.iscbal! bisto'ry. But the recent slip has not caused us nny alarm, iilthough we will admit a. bit of disappointment. We have become, Ihrouph the years, quite accustomed to -ups and downs that the St. Louis 'Americans experience. So this is just another little "down" that we hope ;o live through. Red Hermans, who lalcly cannot put up with us, and has been giving us the ice-cold treatment, taunted us with the statement thai. Die "has-beens" arc returning to l.hc has-been-world, and that Yankee power is ajrain asserting il- sulf, and will RO on to win the eighth flag in the last nine yc.-u-s. 1 "That is something," the red- hcaa said, "with only the Detroit Tigers spoiling a record that \vjuld probably s!ar,d forever. Imagine winning nine pennants in a row." "Yes," we said, "that would be some record. But if, my dear rcd- ncuued Inond, you will recall the closing days of. the '-10 season, it was a doublcheader in St. Louis that the Ya.nlts lost which eventually gave the Tigers the flag." "How well do 1 remember that," Red Hermans said sadly. "We personally arc not fearful at. all concerning Uie outcome of the race this year. We feel that the Browns will come buck again, strong as ever. The Yanks close their season in St. Loo with a four game scries. A clean sweep will put the Browns righl on top of the league, if they aren't there by that time, anyway." "Kow do you account for their slump?" the person with hair the color of a Naugntuclt Fire Dcpart- menl. truck asked. "Wo figure that these so-called has-beens have been playing 'way over their heads for the major part of the season, and they are entitled to ,1 let-down," we offered. 'Look at the games Ihoy blew in the post two weeks. They can't do it all the time. They urc bound to win. This year, if any, the law of averages is completely with them. Thai- is what we pin our hopes on—the law of averages." "Amen, Amen." the redhead said, and left us, for good, in search of better, greener fields. It was swell knowing Red Hermans.... (By United Moj-t Cooper and Bucky Walters both pitched their 20th victories of tho National league season :tx the St. Louis Ca.rdJD.-ils and the Cincinnati Reds split a double bill. Cooper pitched his seventh shutout of the season to defeat Cincinnati in tho opener, -I to 0.

Yale Holds First Football Drills Today Carnegie Tech Suspends Grid Team Pittsburgh, Sept. 6—(U P)—One of tho nation's big names in football—Carnegie Tech—has given up the game for the duration. Athletic Director Clarence Overend says that Tech just can't play football without players or coaches, and a six game schedule will be cancelled. A recent checkup showed that 2S players would be available — and just 11 of them have had any experience on tho gridiron. Tech also has lost two head coaches to the Navy, so the T.irUins will pack their suits away until things look up. Ovcrcnd hopes that Tech can got a team together next year— but the chances arc slim unless the manpower situation cases by then. Last fall Tech played live games —losing four and tying one. That was quite a comedown from the heights Tech reached under Bill Kern in the years through 193S when they beat n strong Pittsburgh team and went on to the Sugar Bowl. New Knvcn, Conn., Sept.
