In Mew York the Philadelphia Athletics rocked the New York Yankees and their pennant hopes with a double victory over the New Yorkers, 5 to •!, and 2 to 1.

Help Draw Crowds Chicago, Sept. 18—(UP)—Baseball fans crowding in to follow the tightest American league pennant race in years already have pushed attendance figures to ha!f-a-million over last year's total. President Will Harridge of the junior league says the 194-1 season may even wind up with a. full million more customers than soured In last year. Thr New York Yankees lead the box . olllce parade, drawing more than 727.000 fans. The Detroit Tigers arc second in -attendance. And the Tigers have 17 more home games coming up. The St. Louis Browns.-who held ilrst place on the diamond most of the way are a poor last in customers with 3-11,000. Texas H.

How'd they make o'ut' against those kids from the next town? High school football Is closer to most fans than any other brand. In many towns it takes on Ihe importance that big time college ball reaches. After all, nearly everyone's gone to high school—in cities that don't need more than a few high schools the competition is fierce and oflen bitter. And the state championship is more in> port.'ir.t than the Rose Bowl game. For one example of that, Icuk at Massil'.ion High, in the heart of the red-hot Ohio gridiron region. Paul Brown coached Massillion to •such heights that Ohio Slate called him up to lead the Buckeyes. And that isn't the only plaoo where high school grid play grips the whole town. Ray Berry lost his job as coach of the Corpus Christi, Texas team after the 1937 season— and there's a story of naming football interest behind that. When Berry called the Corpus Christi Bucs together for practice at the beginning of the season he juncl 10 lettermen ready for another season's play. And there was by Jack Sbrds Hurricane Damages H.

Then the Eucs opened against Harlandale high of San Antonio. Ray Berry's boys looked great. They couldn't do anything wrong thai day—just .'<- smooth, powerful machine that couldn't be stopped and they ran up-IS points to nothing to all for Harlandale. After that it got better and better, San Jacino of Huston went down 23 to nothing—Wayne Johnson moved into the Corpus Christi lineup and bega to throw pusses that hit his receivers like nails going into magnets. Clyde Rogers booted the extra points like a precision machine—he even threw in u field goal for good measure. Then the Bucs whipped through the field as though the- other teams hadn't come out on the Held at oil. They trounced Edinburgh 13 to nothing. Two brilliant passes stopped Beaumont 13 to nothing. Kingsvillo faded away •!! to 7. And that's the way it went. Eight straight victories—253 points lor the Bucs against just 33 for the opposition—and the next hurdle was little Robstown for the district title. That powerful Corpus Christi squad rode high. The downtown quarterbacks sang the praises of Coach Ray Berry and the undefeated, united team that looked like a cinch for the state title, Robstown didn't rate much attention. They hadn't beaten the Bucs since 1031. But Coach Rocky. Rundell primed his boys—to them it was the big game—they hnd everything to gain and nothing to lose. One play won and lost that game. One short play. The (Ired-up Robs town kids rammed across'a touchdown in the first period, and added iho point. Then the Bucs took their turn. A roughing penalty gave them the ball on the Fobstown 23. Dolan and Eason powdered down to tho one-foot line—Eason crashed over for the score—and they lined up to let Clyde Rogers boot the extra point. The packed Carpus Christ! stands I stood and^ watched. For a second I it was quiet—very quiet while the ; ball went down and Rogers swung j his leg. The bn.ll spiraled up—but j it was wide. Outside the posts, i Robstown led seven to six and they won seven to six with an inspired defense the rest of the way. That's why Coach Ray Dcn-y of Corpus ' Christi lost his job, One point cost him his post. The large bridge crossing Hop Brook between the tee and the first fairway was washed out during the hurricane Thursday night, it was reported this morning. And a large tree near the fifth geen fell after succumbing to the strong blasts of wind. These two .incidents make up the greatest extent of the damage 10 the I-Jop Brook Country club course. The washout of the bridge has necessitated the use of a lee on the north side of the brook, until the bridge is replaced. It is expected that work on a now bridge will be dclnyed until next, spring. . AMKRICAK LKAGUJS yesterday's ItcsulU Philadelphia !), New York •! (1st). Philadclphin 2. New York 1 <2<j.i.

Featuring in tho thrilling saga of the -Navy aircraft carrier and its crew who came in on the .wings of Victory and the prayers of the nation are Don Ameche, Diina Andrews and William Blythe with an outstanding cast. The film tells the story of an unidentified aircraft carrier which in the early days of shock nnd confusion following Pearl Harbor, was sent sailing into Jap-infested Pacific and marked as expendable. Sailing under orders to avoid combat — to run away and not fight back — the bewildered and frustrated crew of navy flyers are forced to take everything the Japs can throw at them without retaliating. Wi:h tho stralegic trap for the Nips set, nnd the orders not to engage in combat rescinded the day of revenge for "C.-xrrior X" conints. How tha.l revenge is won at the Battle of Midway makes one ot' the most thrilling climaxes ever to blu/.c across the screen. A new "first Hollywood's long list of technical achievements was scored with the building of an exact replica of tho giant aircraft carrier for the picture. Scenes or bailie never before shown in a Hollywood film are revealed in tho motion picture. Als*o included in the cast of the film are Charles Bickford, Sir Cedric Hardwicke, Richard Jneckcl.
