SOVIETS CRUSH HUMAN Late Rally By Cards Steals Show Red Ruffing Sets Two New World Records In Contest By Judson Bailey Sportsman's Park, St. -In a wiid and turbulent begin- ning to a worid series that had been expected to be one of the tightest in" history, the powerful yra York Yankees stalled the Sr, Louis Cardinals for eight innings Wednesday and won 7 to 4 after authoring an almost incredible ir.nir.s; outburst by the Red- Charley (Red) Ruffing thrilled a capacity crowd of 34.3S5 with one o! the finest pitching performances in his long and lustrous career, es- tablishing two wor'd series records mile shutting out the indomitable Cardinals till the game was within one out of being over. Mort Cooper, bearing all the hopes of the National League on his broad shoulders, had been steadily shelled and finally remov- ed from the thousands of fans were on their way out of ths park. Then the Cardinals suddenly showed the spirit and spark that had earned them a place in this year's baseball classic. They ham- Eered Ruffing out of the box and continued their assault on Spur- lecm (Spud) Chandler until the great crowd was near hysteria and they tafl fo.ur runs across, the bases loaded and one of their finest hitters, rookie Stan Musial, stand- ing at ths plate with what repre- sented the winning run if they could get it across. But the .pink-cheeked freshman missed a chance for fame by Bounding out and the Yankees thankfully vacated the field with tbeir The remarkable Cardinal rally stole the show from Huffing, who pitched no-hit ball for 7 2-3 in- nings for one record and received credit for his seventh world series triumph for a.nother mark. It started ignominously but grew until it must have appeared to Manager Joe McCarthy as a great pay fhost of the 1930 series when the Philadelphia Athletics scored nine runs in the eighth inning to whip the Chicago man- aged by McCarthy. IV. Cooper Starts Rally a .315 slugger ivho did no- make a hit the entire game, rcis'.d a feeble foul to start the ninth. Walker Cooper smashed a hot grounder the third base line and Red Kolfc was unable to make a play although he knocked the ball down. It was a scratch hit, the second of the game off the 38-year-old nutting, and Johnny Hopp flied wt to apparently end any threat. But pinchhittcr Ray Sanders walk- ei and Marty Marion brought both runners home with a triple into the deepest corner of field. icf'tcr t'lat was bing-bang-bing.

The job of the conferees may not be easy, moreover, for there are broad differences of language and intent in the two measures. In particular, the House, with its farm bloc in command, inserted a requirement that parity farm prices be increased by the inclusion of farm labor coats. No ceiling prices for farm products could be established at less than parity, so computed. In the Senate, the farm bloc's in- sistence upon a similar provision precipitated an embittered argu- ment, which went through all the stages of frayed nerves and flaring tempers, to end Wednesday in a Nelson suggested to the Senate Small Business Committee the cre- ation of a war liabilities adjustment board to assist in debt adjustments now and with other financing, tech- nical assistance and priorities on machinery and equipment upon the return of peace. 'Senator Taft (R-Ohio) disagreed with Nelson's proposal on the ground that providing funds for members of a group containing retailers was a "hopeless" and the governor, acting jointly, empowered to purchase short-term federal securities with current funds in the treasury not needed for current expenditures.
