PAGE 4 THE WHITE FALCON SPORTS LA TE NE WS Local Series as Dodgers Win Flag: (Continued from page 1.) when they split a twin bill with the troublesome Pirates. They were shut out the first game 8—0, but they returned with a vengeance when they in turn blanked the Pirates 9—0 in the second half. It was learned on Friday night that the season-long battle had ended and finally the hilarious inhabitants of Flatbush, who had hooted, riot- ed and otherwise tooted their idols into a nickel world series, could rest at ease. This World Series has long been anticipated due to the fact that the Dodgers have held the upper hand over the Yank- ees in their many pre season tussles. The Dodgers presenting one of the best teams produced in the Senior Loop in recent years will enter the Yankee Stadium next Wednesday primed for action. It is of great interest to those who think the National League is the lesser League to note that in winning this penn- ant the Dodgers have won only one game fewer than the Yanks who have had a much easier sledding. Hence, the odds are with the Bronx Bombers, though they are shortened due to the loss of Charlie Keller and Joe Di Maggio due to injuries. These heavy hitters were prime factors in the winning of the pennant and though they may see some action their complete presence will be sorely missed by their team and fans. Tl\e Dodgers though tired from their long struggle will be in there with every thing in view of the added money interest. Players such as Reese, Med- wick and Camilli are at their best when the chips are down and when one hit may mean the difference of a thousand or more dollars in their year's pay. It remains to be seen wheth- er Joe McCarthy's managing genius will again repeat itself over the dead bodies of Larry McPhail and Leo Durocher. Colleges Start Pigskin Whirl Boston College Wins BUY YOUR PAPER THE WHITE FALCON Though the onrushing colle- giate Pigskin season doesn't go into full swing until next Saturday Oct. 4, several big teams, including the pros have already seen or will see action before that date. Last Saturday Boston Col- lege, minus its great stars of last year, made its strong ap- pearance felt by trimmingafair St. Anslem's team by running up the big score of 78—0, while tuning up for its big game with Tulane today. It was noted that B.C., winners of last years Sugar Bowl contest, while not presenting as great an array of stars as last year, have a well drilled team that is deep in reserves. Today's game should tell us just what Bost- ons chances are of repeating last years successes. Other college scorers of last week were: Tennesse 30, Furman. 6 North Carolina 42, Lenoir 6. Northwestern 13, Louisiana State Normal 6. Virgina 41, Hampden-Sidney 0. Indiana 19, Prentice 0. Hurricane Hits State of Texas Texas — A hurricane has been sweeping the state of Tex- as, causing widespread destruc- tion and leaving in its wake hundreds of thousands of doll- ars of property damage. Many are known to be dead and scor- es injured. Freeport was the hardest hit and many thous- ands were left homeless. Port Arthur and Galveston are still partly under water. Wednesday night a wind velocity of 95 miles an hour was recorded. Thursday the high wind had subsided and the storm now appears to have passed its height. TO PLAY SUNDAY ¦'::". ¦ ¦'": -.¦¦'.¦. ¦¦: !?99SS8flEjjs -' ;9Hni The Football Club of Reykjavik (K.R.) who this summer won the Icelandic Championship Football Cup, from the Val- ur (Falcon), to whom they lost it 4 years ago, — Valur retain- ed the Reykjavik Championship Cup. The play-off game or- iginally scheduled for last Sunday, was cancelled because of rain. Traditional Games Open Season Traditional' opening games for today are between Minnes- ota, perpetual winner of the Big Ten and Washington, a crucial test for both teams; and Navy versus William and Mary one of the oldest opening con- tests on record. While the majority of col- lege teams were still tuning up the pay-for-play boys began their mayhem as the scrappy Brooklyn Dodgers made their initial bid for the Eastern Championship by trouncing the Detroit Lions 14 to 7. Mean- while the Western half of the League was inaugurated when the Green Bay Packers led once more by glue-fingered Don Hutson passed their way to well earned victory over the Cleveland Rams, 24—12. Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Pirates began their rivalry for the cellar when the pirates just managed to lose by the margin of a well placed field goal 10—7. Other teams were inactive but will all enter the fray this Sunday. Neutrality Act Change Coming* Washington — Steven Early, personal secretary to President Roosevelt, said at a press con- ference Wednesday night that an important change in the Neutrality Bill would be made early next week. Montana Crew Hissing: WASHINGTON. — The crew of the American owned freight- er Montana was believed Fri- day to be drifting in the North Atlantic in life boats. The Navy Department announced that the Montana had been sunk by a torpedo while enroute from Wilminton, South Carolina, to Iceland with a cargo of lumb- er. The Montana, flying a Pan- amanian flag, formerly was the Danish ship Paula: Accord- ing to the Navy Department, a naval aircraft observed the torpedoing and reported that the crew, none of them Ameri- can, had taken to the boats. However, no trace of the crew has been found as vet. Brett at War Front In order to promote the de- velopment and procurement of all types of aircraft and avia- tion equipment now being sup- plied to the nations defending themselves against aggressors, Major General George H. Brett, Chief of the Army Air Corps, will tour the African, Near East, Mediterranean, and At- lantic war fronts. No announce ment will be made of the date of departure. A similar tour will be made by Lieutenant Colonel E. M. Powers, Air Corps; Major Jam- es H. Dolittle, Air Corps; and Lieutenant Colonel K. G. Boyd, Air Corps. They will meet Gen- eral Brett's party at certain points of the war fronts.
