OLD Chicago, Oct, 7.—(APi — Winning the Chicago City Series is still strictly a White Sox habit. The American leaguers did it again last night at Comiskey park, defeating the National league Cubs, 4 to 1, to score their eighth straight city championship. Johnny Humphries, w'ho gave the Cubs six hits in winning last Friday night, turned back the north- siders with five last night. Lon Wameke attempted to stop the Sox, but gave w’ay after pitching the first five innings. It was the Sox fourth victory in the series that wrent six games. Total attendance was 45.818. The receipts were $46,428.5b, of which S16.924.86 went into the players pool. ILLINI UNKNOWN OUANTITY IN BIG TEN TITLE RACE Off Center Play Minnesota Will Clear Up Situation in Tilt Saturday Chicago, Oct. 7— (AP)- Western Conference football experts, having made up their minds on the possibilities of just about every league contender except Illinois, expect, to complete their championship indexing this week when the Illini’s first non-Zuppke- coached team in 30 years tackles powerful Minnesota. They’ve once more tabbed Minnesota, conference winner four times in the last five years, as *he team to beat. And the consensus is that Michigan, Ohio State and Northwestern will take up the challenge. The rest of the teams have been relegated to the rank of outsiders. Nothing yet has served to alter this appraisal, although the performance of Illinois against admittedly weak opposition has brought several raised eyebrows. In games against South Dakota and Butler, the athletes coached by Ray Eliot have scored 113 points, rolled up 862 yards from scrimmage and their goal line remains imtouched=Jrtt this on straight football and without the trickery long associated with Bob Zuppke. Wally Weber, Michigan scout, said he believes “football is on the way up at Illinois. It’s an improved team the Mini are putting on the field this year, x x x x They’re liable to open up one of these Saturday’s. When they do, some team is in for a surprise.” Even the Mini don’t know just what they’ve got. But Mini scout and freshman coach Leo Johnson is sure of one thing after watching Minnesota against the mighty Iow’a Sea- havvks Saturday. “That Bill Daley (Minnesotta left halfback) is a ball club in himself,” he said. “His performance Saturday was one of the greatest exhibitions of one-man running, one-man tackling. one-man blocking and one- man passing that I have ever seen." U. OF C. MENTOR HAS A SPECIAL REASON TO WIN Chicago. Oct. 7.—(AP)—Coach Kyle Anderson has an especial reason why he wants his University of Chicago basketball team to win some games in the 1942-43 season. The Maroons didn't win a single one of their 15 Western Conference games last year, but AndelV son says he hopes to get into the win column this season. He said: “Then W'e’ll mail a clipping to all of our boys on the various fighting fronts with this notation: ‘Don’t get discouraged. Look at the odds w’e overcame.’ ” GELATKA IS CITED Washington — Chuck Gelatka. veteran end who quit the New York professional football Giants at the end of the 1940 season to join the Army Air Corps, was cited for extraordinary success with a fighter squadron in the Pacific.

Registering from Wausau, Wis., high, Hirsch’s athletic record reads like that posted by Frank Merriwell, and the six-foot, tw'o-inch, 185-pound youngster has lived up to advance notices. Hirsch is considered the best left halfback prospect Wisconsin has had in years. He w'as in great demand at the close Sf his prep career, but w'anted to make good in college in his home state. While not so fast over a distance. Hirsch has terrific starting speed and is plenty rapid up to 40 yards. He rambles with a deceiving stride which upon first observation appears clumsy, but he soon convinces you otherwise. Hirsch Passes, Too His main forte is running. He blocks w'ell, however, and Harry Stuhldreher plans to use him at both left and right halfback in his Notre Dame system. Thus far his action has been confined to left half. Stuhldreher does not call on him to kick because he has better booters. Hirch’s passing must be developed, but he is coming along nicely in this department. He threw' to Dave Schreiner for touchdowms as the Madison outfit evened last fall’s score with Marquette. Schreiner, by the way, is an end really set for stardom this autumn, after being very close to the top last trip. He was on the catching end of four passes against Marquette, three of which w’ere good for touchdowns. Full Quota of Sf*rs With men like Hirsch and Schreiner, in addition to Fullback Pat Harder, leading scorer and ground gainer, in the Big 10 last year when he rolled up 731 yards, Wisconsin has its full quota of stars. The Badgers are strong all along the starting front, lacking only in reserves, W'hom Stuhldreher is confident will develop. But to get back to Hirsch, against Camp Grant he carried nine times for 89 yards. Against Notre Dame he carried seven times for 28. He ran 35 yards for the touchdown which gave Wisconsin its surprising 7-7 tie. Against Marquette he scored on a beautiful 18-yard run during which he was hit quite squarely four times. All-Around Athlete While Hirsch’s brief career at Wisconsin has been pretty much confined to football, he broad jumps close to 24 feet. He established a new’ Wisconsin A. A. U. broad jump record last spring, although it was but the third time he ever donned spiked shoes. He is a superlative basketball player and has been scouted by major league clubs as a center fielder. Hirsch is a sophomore in the Letters and Science school. He plans to enter the insurance business, w'here he has spent his summers working. He is not affiliated with a fraternity and is only 19. so his draft status is still not determined. They called Elroy Hirsch “Ghost” in high school. Wisconsin and its opponents now know' w'hy.

Clemency Is Denied 42 Illinois Convicts Springfield, 111., Oct. 7—(AP) —Acting on recommendation of the state pardon board, Governor Dwight Green yesterday denied petitions for executive clemency by 42 convicts in Illinois prisons. Twelve of the 42 are serving life terms for murder. The board heard the applications for clemency last July and recommended that they be denied. President Plans To Broadcast to Nation in Week or Ten Days Washington, Oct. 7—(AP) — President Roosevelt plans to make a brief radio talk some time in the next week or ten days but he does not expect it will be a review of the W’ar. At his press conference yesterday, the president said a half dozen or perhaps a dozen topics w’ould be selected from a list of 40 or 50 w’hich he said various persons had asked him to discuss. He might touch briefly on his recent cross country inspection tour, he said, although he added that there was little new's left in that. Date of the speech will be announced later. REDBIRDS CHANGE ENTIRE SETUP OF CLUB IN MID-JULY Team That Slaughtered Yanks Not Same as Started in May By JUDSON BAILEY New York. Oct. 7— (AP)—One of the reasons the St. Louis Cardinals were able to spring a surprise on the New York Yankees in the World Series, and on a lot of other people including the Brooklyn Dodgers, was that they finished with a different team than the fluttering Redbirds w’ho started last spring. ---------When the Cardinals came streaking down the stretch in the National league, their rivals consoled themselves with remembrances of the earlier Redbirds and figured they would return to their previous pace. It took the World Series to prove that winning 43 of their last 52 scheduled games was nearer the natural gait of the Cards than their performance in the first half of the season when they reached the All-Star game intermission with a record of 43 won and 29 lost. At the start of the season the St. Louis infield had rookie Ray Sanders on first, Frank Crespi on second. Martin Marion at short and Jimmy Brown at third. The experts were saying the Cardinals had sold aw'ay their pennant chance by letting Big John Mize go to the New York Giants. George (Whitey) Kurowski, w'hose homer in the fifth game of the World Series clinched the championship for the Cards, was considered likely timber for Rochester or Columbus, or some other Redbird farm. His short right arm, from w'hich three inches of bone were removed in a childhood operation, made him a dead leftfield hitter. Kurow'ski rode the bench for w'eeks and it W’as not until his closest friend, Crespi, failed to hit that the Reading, Pa., rookie received his chance. The Cards dropped a doubleheader on May 24 and at* that point had won only 19 games to 17 lost. Manager Billy South- w’orth decided the time was ripe to start masterminding. Shakeup The next day Brow'n moved to second and Kurow'ski became the regular custodian of the hot corner. The team W'on four straight Then came the next step in the revitalization of the Redbirds. On May 27 Johnny Hopp was installed permanently at first base. The change w'ould have been made sooner except that Hopp had injured a thumb soon after the season started. However, right along about here the Cards received a rude setback because their two southpaw stars, Ernie White and Howie Pollet, developed ami trouble. A lump as big as a chestnut swelled up on White’s left ami and he could not raise his hand to throw the ball. He pitched an eight-hitter and w’on on the day Kurowski made his debut, May 25. But from then until June 19 he never got into another ball game and he never won another game until July 1. This pitching problem helped lead to the discovery of Johnny Beazley. He was going into games as a relief pitcher, holding the foe scoreless for four or five innings and he finally convinced Southworth it was a mistake to spot the other teams three or four runs before putting in Beazley. So the manager made up his mind to make the lanky rookie a starting pitcher and a week later sold Lon Wameke to the Chicago Cubs for W'aiver money $7,500 in a deal that shocked the baseball front. Some folks thought the Cards were conceding the pennant to the Dodgers. It was just the other way around. From the day the Cards made this misunderstood deal they won 63 games and lost just 19. In every respect it was a managerial triumph for Southworth, who took the material that was given him by the front office and knitted it into a world championship. DUDLEY LEAPS INTO GROUND GAINING LEAD Chicago, Oct. 7 — (AP* — Bill Dudley, wlio last December was the No. 1 choice in the National football league’s draft, this week became* the league’s No. 1 ground gainer. The former Virginia star brought his total to 205 yards by collecting 60 in 14 tries as Pittsburgh upset the New' York Giants, This moved him ahead of Gaylon Smith of Cleveland, whose 174 total dropped him to third behind Merlyn Condit of Brooklyn who had 194. Condit had the best average of the three 8.4 yards in 23 attempts. Cecil Isbell of Green Bay, the JeagtKrir—forward' passing- -ehirm-- pion, also slipped, going all the way to fourth place as Tommy Thompson of Philadelphia took over with 37 completions in 72 attempts for 573 yards. Sammy Baugh of Washington was second and Dean McAdams of Brooklyn third. An injury kept Jim Benton of Cleveland out of action and he lost his lead in pass receptions to Green Bay’s Don Hutson, who caught three against Chicago’s Cardinals to run his total to 10. Benton and Steve Lach of the Cardinals each have nine. R0S33UP RAMBLING RAM New York — After traveling to Lafayette to engage Purdue and to Knoxville to tackle Tennessee, Fordhams football team will play at home for the first time in a game with North Carolina at the Polo Grounds, Oct. 10. IHIHiil By HUGH FULLERTON, !R New York, Oct. 7—(AP) — While American soldiers are lend- leasing baseball to the British and Australians (and causing them no end of confusion) we’re getting a taste of rugby in return ... A team of Australian and New' Zealand flying cadets will play a royal navy outfit as a preliminary to the Columbia-Brown game Saturday and two squads from the R.A.F. flying school at Ponca City. Okla., will put on an exhibition fcr Oklahoma City fans a week later . . Looks as if football rules, frozen for the duration, will have to be defrosted. The new shift Dick Harlow uncovered at Harvard makes the current offside ruling look rather silly and Lou Little, head of the coaches’ advisory committee, will ask to have it changed. ■■ ♦— SERIES SCRAPINGS— A couple of years ago our old man—a fair country baseball expert, you remember—told us: “These National league clubs can’t beat the Yankees by trying to play their game, but if they'll play National league ball, they can win” . . . Isn’t that just about w'hat the Cards did? . . . Lieut. Commander Bill Reinhart, former George Washington U. athletic director, once recommended Stan Musial to the Yankees after he failed to get him for the G. W. basketball team, but by the time a Yank scout arrived the Cards already had signed him. WEEK’S BEST CRACK- After viewing that nudist infield at Sportsmans park. Goofy Gomez (W’ho isn’t) came up with this one: “A rolling ball on this diamond will gather no grass ” SERVICE DEPT.— Lieut. Col. "Cec” Merritt, Canada’s first winner of the Victoria Cross in this w'ar, used to be quite a rugby player in Vancouver and one story is that he once ran into the grandstand at top speed and shifted the whole thing six inches. . . Ralph Fife, former Pitt guard who played for the Eastern Army All Stars, is in both the Army and the Navy. He was drafted after he had applied for a Navy commission, which came through the other day. so now' he’s trying to clear away the red tape and change uniforms. Birds Expect to Cop Title Next Season Billy the Kid Promises Same in Gala Homecoming St. Louis, Oct. 7. (AP)—Most baseball clubs W'ould he content just listening to the applause for this year’s accomplishments — but not those saucy St. Louis Cardinals. They arrived home yesterday, these new world champions, and the highlight of the impromptu show put on by 15.000 fans was Manager Billy Southworth’s promise: 41 We hope to give you another championship club next year.” The band blurted out with “Hail. Hail, the Gang’s All Here,” as bands always do, when the train bearing the Cardinals hissed to a stop. The idea was good, but not quite accurate. Missing wrere outfielder Stan Musial, catcher Ken O’Dea, and pitcher Lloyd Moore, all of whom had dropped off at their respective homes. First to pop out of the train was first baseman Johnny Hopp. Apparently he was sent out as a scout, to se what the team could expect, for the others held back while Hopp was pummelled, backslapped and congratulated by the happy fans. When they saw' Hopp escape with his life, the rest ventured forth to be greeted by Missouri’s governor, Forrest C. Donnell, and St. Louis’ mayor, William D. Becker. Practically everyone made a speech, none of u'hich is expected to be included in “famous orations of history.” But the good humored crowd found it all wonderful, Mike Gonzales, the coach W’ho found his way from Cuba to St. Louis, got a big hand for his remarks.
