MINI INDEPENDENTS PIANBATTIES Maugansville Must Win Pair Tomorrow To Clinch Pennant The Independent League will wind up the 1939 season tomorrow with all teams playing. The 1 Maugansville Colts, leading by a more half-game, need to win both games they are scheduled to play tomorrow to clinch the flag. The Colts will battle the Tate Cubs in the first and the tough Victor Eagles in the second. The Colts are facing a mighty tough proposition and will most likely have to capture both games to come through with the pennant. At 1:15 o'clock on the City Park diamond they will meet the Tate Cubs in a protested game. The teams will take the field to replay the last half or the ninth inning with the Colts leading 3 to 2 and the Cubs at bat with one man out and a man on first base. A victory for the Colts in this game would make it possible for them to fare no worse than a tie should they lose to the- Victors and Harrystown and Yarrowsburg win their games. A win over the Cubs in their protested game and a victory over the DIVIDE DOUJJLE BILL Win Opener From New York Giant* And Then Drop Nightcap. CINCINNATI, Sept. (£>) 16—Th Reds' luck frayed out again Friday when darkness cut the second game of a doubleheader to seven innings and hefted the New York Giants win 4 to 3 after Cincinnati had taken the opener 10 to 6 for its sixth straight triumph. This development enabled the St. Louis Cards to shave the Reds National League lead half a notch to 3^ games with a bitter 1 to 0 decision over the Boston Red Sox in 14 Innings. After four shutout innings by Whitey Moore, Bob Seeds singled and Tom Hafey laid down a sacrifice bunt for the Giants. Eddie Joost, covering first let the throw through him and Seeds not only scored, but Hafey reached third and then came home on a single by Alex Kampouris.

Security and Middleburg are meeting on the latter's diamond and the Cementmakers need a victory to remain in the running for a berth in the playoff division.

He must develop replacements for the 16 returning lettermen. Graduation took all the first string ine but John Kelly, right end. The econd string line will move in al- nost intact to replace stars like Earl Brown, Ed Beinor, and Ed Longhi. In the backfield Layden will ave an experienced quartet.

Sheridan and Stevenson, with Sitko and Sagau. make up Notre Dame's "S-Men" quartet. Milt Piepul is slated for fullback duty. He came through often as the Irish Avon eight of nine games in 1938. "I really never know how good we'll be," Layden says . "Notre Dame teams always come up with a lot of fight when it's most needed, and I hope this 1939 team has it often. That schedule is enough to frighten anyone — but we'll have a ball club." Probably a pretty good one too Elmer. Notre Dame usually has. uncle and aunt, Llewellyn Powell.

Y., Sept 16.— Regardless of who carries the national championship off the center court at Forest Hills Sunday, this year's tournament will go down to posterity as the one in which Welby Van Horn told the boys to move over and make room for a tennis player. The Los Angeles sensation, bare If 19. reached the- semi-finals with a 4-6. 2-6, 6-4. 7-5, 6-3 victory over Wayne Sabin of Portland, Ore.—as splendid a rally from the Ihin edge of defeat as a player ever contrived. Tomorrow he plays Jack Brotn- wich of Australia in the semi-finals of his second tournament. Jf he doesn't get stage-fright, and If he has control of his trip-hammer game, Welby might win it.

CARDiNAlTfAKE A THRILLER 1-0 Boston Bees Defeated in Fourteen Inning Contest by St. Louis St. Louis, Sept. 15 (/p).—A great hurling duel between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Bees was broken up in the fourteenth liming today when Enos Slaughter doubled and Joe Medwick singled Mm home to give the Redbirds a 1 to 0 victory. The triumph put the Cards 3% games behind the league-leading Cincinnati Reds who split a doubleheader with the Giants. Jim Turner for the Bees and Bob Bowman for the Cards hurled scoreless ball for eleven innings, before relief pitchers were called on. Lon Wnrnoke was the winning pitcher and Johnny Lanning the loser. The Bees missed a great scoring opportunity in the seventh when Sisti singled, stole second and sprinted for the plate on Bill tt'ietelmann's single.

Despite a heavy schedule the Felines are in good shape and expect to take over the Frederick county representatives, who finished second in the strong Tri-County League. This loop embraces the outstanding" baseball talent in Frederick, Carroll and Howard counties. In Fleagle at first base, the fans will see one of the league's best players, while the visitors also boast of a fast outfield and good pitching. The Cats have been playing a good brand of ball themselves and, with Brown, Bowers and Poffenberger leading the attack, will be hard to stop. In all probability Myers will start for the. home club, although Boots Poffenberger, whose arm has been rounding into shape, might decide to take over the pitching duties himself. j In ringing down the curtain on their last home game, the Williams- porters are staging a Booster Day and a large crowd is expected.
