The snappy -work of the Cards, who have taken 15 of their past 17 games, reminded the 7,SSo fans at Forbes Field of the 1934 St. Louis gang which won the pennant after trailing by five games on Labor day. Rizto Is Goat Johnny Rizzo was the goat of the first game. Twice he misplayed hits by Terry Moore which went for home runs inside the field each time with a man on. base. Fiddler Bill McGee held the Pirates to three puny singles in the twilight contest and never was in serious trouble. The double victory made it six double-header triumphs in a row for St. Louis.

ON DOWN THE SPORTS TRAIL By WHITNEY MARTIN New York, Aug. 16 (£»).—The New York State Athletic Commission often is the target of ridicule, even abuse. Some of its rulings may seem a little left-handed, and its statements may be couched in pompous phrases, but anyone challenging its integrity is .overmatching himself. General John J. Phelan i» the chairman, The General is cour teous, honest, conscientious, anc sometimes a little mixed up. There was the time not long ago, for in stance, when Lou Ambers and Henry Armstrong met to sign the contract for their lightweight championship fight. Q The General presided over that little formality, and ihen hauled forth another document. "Gentlemen," he said. "I have here another contract, with attached clauses. But if Armstrong wins this fight they don't have to. The . assembled scribes were slightly befuddled. Mike Jacobs, little brown eyes twinkling, said: NEIGHBORLY NEIGHBORS By OSCAR HITT WORD *THUG" IS NOT MOOERH SUNG / PROOF NEXT THURSDAY Down Down DURING OUR AUGUST USED CAR CLEARANCE SALE Down Down Answer To Previous Ad.

"Don't you understand that?" A scribe hesitantly admitted that maybe It wasn't quite clear. The General cleared it up with one brief sentence. "Why, they don't have to, that's all," he said. It turned out that the second document was a contract calling for a meeting £or the welterweight title should Ambers win the lightweight affair. But we started out to give an example of the General's honesty. It occurred very recently after a, flood of rumors to the effect that Armstrong waa having trouble making weight. The General decided to find out for himself, and he wasn't going to hav« th« wool pulled over eyes by any shenanigans on the part of Eddte Mead, Armstrong's manager. . He weighed himself very carefully before climbing into a car for a trip to the camp. The day was hot. The sun beat down in double time. The interior of the car was just about right lor roasting corn. O By the time he reached the camp the General was seeing mirages of beautiful lakes and babbling brooks. His friends graciously offered him highballs, or sparkling glasses of cool water. The General, by now so parched he couldn't lick his lips shook his head doggedly. He knew what he weighed, by gum, and he was going scales wert to se« that Mead's right. Finally he staggered to'the scales and cautiously adjusted the weights. Satisfied* he stepped down- and ordered Armstrong to stand on th« platform. Again he adjusted the weights. The beam balanced at 135 pounds. YOU'LL be surprised a,t value* which are offered In classified ada.
