It seemed possible, in fact, that the real uncorking of home- town pride will await return of the baseball heroes themselves, probably Friday. The Twins not only nailed down the pennant on the road, but did it on the one day of the week Sunday when you can shoot a cannon down the main streets of both Minne- apolis and St. Paul with little danger of winging anybody. Minnesota is dry on Sundays and the normal rallying points for spontaneous demonstrations are locked tight.
