Indians Even Series Count With 4-1 Win Over Braves BRAVES FIELD, Boston (AP) , —Bob Lemon squared the world series for Cleveland yesterday by setting down the Boston Braves with eight hits for a 4-1 victory in the second game of the best of seven classic before 39,633. Manager Lou Boudreau, who went hitless in Johnny Sain’s open ing victory, led the Indians with a sparkling day afield and at bat. His double started a two-run splurge in the fourth and he drove home the third run off southpaw Mrs. Wickam Attends Meet Golda P. Wickham, University director of women’s affairs, will leave this afternoon for Neskowin, Oregon, where she will attend the statewide conference of high school and college deans of women. Mrs. Wickham will report on the national convention of deans of women, which she attended last April in Chicago. After the conference’s conclusion Sunday, she will attend a meeting of the Portland Panhellenic Mon day. Miss Maxine Blake, executive secretary for the University of Washington organization, will be the featured speaker. Jr. Advisers Meet A meeting of the junior advisers of the YWCA has been called for Friday noon at the bungalow. All are asked to bring their own lunches. Warren Spahn in the fifth. He started one double play, was in the middle of another, made a fine catch of a pop fly in short center and picked a man off second. Lemon, accomplishing what his more famous pitching mate, Bobby Feller, failed to do, came through with a series win in his first start because the Indians were able to handle Spahn. Lemon, a 20-game winner in the regular season, struck out five men and walked three. The converted infielder who failed the Indians twice in the final weeks of the season, missed tying the series record for chances by a pitcher. He handled 10 chanc es—3 putouts and 7 assists—one less than Nick Altrock did for the Chicago White Sox back in 1906. Time after time the hustling braves nudged Lemon into a cor ner but he always escaped with a whole skin after allowing a first inning run. Even then it wasn’t entirely his Hostess Finalists To be Interviewed Homecoming hostess finalists will be interviewed over radio station KUGN in a series of three special broadcasts today, Monday and Tuesday. Spon sored by Kaufman brothers, the show will be aired at 11:13. Fin alists to be interviewed are Bar bara Link, Virginia Walker, Jane Hull, Ruth Mihnos, Norman Duf fy and Nancy Chamberlain. fault. Joe Gordon messed up a rol ler by Alvin Dark for an error. Then Earl Torgeson and Bob El liott followed with successive sin gles to drive home the run. The Indians got after Spahn, the No. 2 man of Billy Southworth’s staff, in a two-run fourth, that turned out to be enough to hand the Braves their first world series defeat. Only once before had they been in a classic, back in 1914 when they won four straight. Boudreau opened the fourth with a two-bagger to the right field cor ner. He hustled home on Joe Gor don’s single to center. Gordon, who had taken second on the futile throw trying to catch Boudreau at the plate, scored when Larry Doby, the fleet Negro cen terfielder of the Cleveland club, grounded a single to right field. In the fifth, Dale Mitchell banged out a leadoff single to left. After Allie Clark sacrificed him to second, Boudreau, the boss, sin gled through Spahn’s legs scoring Mitchell. That was the blow that ruined Spahn, who was replaced by Red Barrett, the portly relief artist. Red escaped without scoring but the jlndians added another in the ninth off Nelson Potter. The third Braves error of the day, a boot by shortstop Alvin Dark, put Hegan on first base to start the ninth. Jim moved to third on two infield outs and scored when Bob Kennedy dropped a Texas league single into short cen ter.
