QYer the Washington
Senators in
the opening game
world's aeries after
of the 1924
one of the
most thrilling,- dramatic battles
baseball has ever known.
The Giants won by the narrow
margin of 4 to 3 in 12 bitterly
contested Innings and conquered
Washington's heroic Roundsman,
Walter Johnson, bat the Senators
though beaten in the first bid
they bare ; ever made for ' the
game's greatest crown, coyered
themselves with glory in a fighting
finish that droTe a crowd of oyer
35,000 Into hysterical frenzy..
t Come From Behind :
I Coming from . behind .. when it
seemed .that two smashing home
runs by George Kelly and Bill
Terry had clinched the game for
the National league! champions,
Washington, tied the score in the
ninth with a spectacular rally and
then, in the 12th, after the Giants
had gained another commanding
lead.' scored their third run off
Art Nehr, Giant ; southpaw, and
threatened once more to deadlock
the game In a final desperate
.'i The Giants triumphed by the
sieer, relentless power of an at
tack .that Johnson ' and .the Sena
tors, despite their most heroic ef
f arts, .could not check. Bat the
American league champions, al
. though they emerged defeated In
this gripping three-hour' straggle
far -supremacy, left tbe field amid
one of the most remarkable dem
onstrations any team. Tictor or
vanquished, eyer recelred..
' The first citizen of the nation,
Fresident Coolidge, chief among
a host of notables forming ! the
brilliant; gathering, i threw re
straint aside at the lend of that
pulse-quickening VI 2ti inning as
he waved his hat and joined in
the mighty tribute , to the .Senators
Vho had fought their fight cour
ageously a.nd come within an ace
of turning the tide that through
. out the . game had seemed lrre
slstably against them.
I ; Defeat Keenly Felt
, It was a i stunning blow for
Washington's high hopes, a defeat
for Johnson that had Us tragedy
after he reached, but could not
cross the threshold of his 18-year-old,
ambition a world's series
victory, but ,it left "Bucky" Har
rlif. 2 7-year-old pilot and his men
tmdiscouraged. undismayed and
confident that they have suffered1
only a' temporary setback in a
flgt that will lead to ultimate
triumph. 1 I f
I Johnson, the Idol of all fandom,
the' mainspring of Washington's
hope, emerged . & hero even in de
feat. For while the. gallant vete
ran, was hit hard , and paved the
way for his own downfall in the
12 th Inning when he! faltered, he
gave a brilliant exhibition. Flash
ing all the amazing speed that has
made him famous, Johnson struck
out 12 of the Giants,! and In nine
of the 12 innings baffled them
with the craft and "smoke" of his
delivery. But two mighty home
runs by Kelly and Terry, .thrusts
that came with the suddenness of
lightning rand a savage -drive in
the 12th inning brought about
the veteran's undoing. -

air pursuit group. Self ridge field,
Mt. demons. Mich., fell to ' his
death from an altitude variously
estimated , at between 500 and 1

day as he was preparing to swing
into a flying start in the Pulitzer
race, the last event of the inter

Forty thousand spectators saw
Skeel's plane f break into pieces

SAN FRANCISCO. Oct. 4. The
discovery by police of Daly City,
a suburb, today of the body of
Mrs. Vernie Davies, 23. horribly
mutilated and stuffed In a trunk
simultaneously with the finding
of the body of her husband, II. A.
Davies, former state traffic officer,
at Susanville. Cal., with a bullet
hole in his head, has started a
search for Mrs. Davies' son by .a
former marriage, Wilbur Comp
ton, aged three. It is believed
that the boy, too, may have been
slain and the authorities late to
day started to dig for the body in
the basement of the house where
the gruesome discovery was made.
The police believe that Mrs. Davies
was murdered by her husband in
the Crockett apartments here on
the night of September 13 and her
body placed in the trunk at that
time and moved with the other
family, belongings to the Daly City
cottage three days later. T
Little Wilbur was last seen alive
September 13 by Mrs. E. M. Pap
pen, manager of an apartment
house. Mrs. Pappen told the au
thorities that there had been a
commotion "in the .Davies' apart
ment and she had gone to investi
gate. She said that Davies told
her that he had had a "battle"
and had found another man in
the place in company with his
wife. . Later, according to Mr,
pappen, she saw him washing
blood stains from the wall.' He
volunteered that his wife and child
had gone to Reno,- although Mrs.
Pappen had observed the child
playing about only a short time
before. . i
I It is presumed that Davies
brooded over the killing and de
cided to commit suicide. He had
not been seen since September 27.
Mrs. Davies Jvad .formerly .been
the wife of Charles O. Compton,
presumably of Reno. She was
married to Davies In that i . city
June 25, 1923. Her child was
born in Reno, November 1, 1920.
A note was found apparently either
from the mother of Davies or his
wife bearing the address 125 W.
Second street, Reno, indicating
that she was going to Luning,
Nev.
Mrs. Davies' body was in such
a condition as to indicate that an
autopsy might have been perform
ed upon it after death. . The torso
was slit open as though by a sur
geon in a post mortem examina
tion. Later Investigations indicated
the possibility that Davies also
mayt have been murdered. . The
police found two revolvers beside
the body With all the chambers
empty. There were a number of
bullet holes In the walls that had
been plugged with putty.

pitched under the handicap of oc
cupying the limelight. "Walter
was,, not unhappy, although he
wanted to win. He is Just. as good
a man in defeat as he would have
been, in victory and I think he
deserved to win."
Arthur Nehf, Giant veteran, "who
came - back to win . the : hardest
fought battle in the history of
world's series competition after
cracking against the Yankees last
year, was more Inclined to speak
of Johnson than of himself.
"Walter pitched a great game."
he said. "It was mighty fine to
win, of course, hut it would not
have been hard to lose to the man
I opposed today.' There -were
moments when victory hang on a

FOR THE GOP
United States Secretary of
State Fires Initial Gun
With Address Given at
Cincinnati
ADMINISTRATION IS
STRONGLY DEFENDED
All Political Corruption Will
Be Abolished, Is Prom
ise Made
CINCINNATI, Ohio. Oct. 4.
The republican presidential cam
paign in Ohio formally was opened
here, tonight with Secretary
Hughes-as 'chief speaker, his ad
dress covering almost every issue
raised those far by either demo-
cratlc - or independent orators.'
"Whatever may be the subject
of campaign speakers," the secre
tary declared, there is really only
one Issue in this campaign, that, is
shall the administration of Cal
vin Coolidge be continued?
The average man who. is not
interested in the tactics of the
campaign says to himself and to
his neighbor "why should there
be a change?" t
Taking up first the argument
of "our historic opponents of the
democratic party," Mr. Hughes
dismissed briefly what he termed
"eloquent discourse on the fun
damental principles of American
government. "Does it occur to our
friends, that if the question is
one of Americanism, you could not
find in the length and breadth of
the land a more typical American
than Calvin Coolidge?" he asked.
"Calvin j Coolidge :- Incarnates
Americanism. There could be no
betterment in change." r J s
. .Honesty Not An Issue ; .1
?"Jt was equally vain to seek an
issue in common , honesty," Mr.
Hughes declared. ; .ii-v-: : '".; I
"Fortunately honesty is com
mon," he added. "It is common
to both parties, because it is com
mon to Americans. t It is not the
special quality of any party.
"We detest political corruption
and we demand the punishment of
the guilty. The republican who
BOilahts hands in corrupt dealing
Is as treacherous to his party as
to his country. Every de
mand of justice Is being met and
every Interest of the government
is being safeguarded.' ;
After reading the 'section of the
democratic j platform, j proposing
an advisory referendum election
on joining the league, Mr. Hughes
continued:
'Probably ' a more
futile and. unsound proposal has
never been made by a convention
of a great political party. :
This Is j the proposal which the
former democratic 1 secretary of
war aptly characterized in the
convention itself as 'a fanciful, il
legal, unconstitutional, revolution
ary referendum, I need not pay
further attention to this absurd
proposal than to use his words-"
Attacks Progressives .
Mr. i. Hughes reserved j fire at
third ticket until the close of his
address. - It offered, he said, 1 a
'definite program" but he added
that y remedies for abuses could
be found ''without overturning
Institutions."
"I do not believe," the secre
tary continued "in which doctors
or in beating tom-toms to exercise
evil spirits, instead of seeking
suitable hygiene to get the full
benefit of a .sound constitutional
system.".:-;! ' ''
T& first effect of the indepen
dent movement in case of success
would be "no election at all," Mr.
Hughes declared, adding:
"The third party begins by
threatening us with confusion and
panic' -:!-";' 1
"The constitution says that the
congress shall make no law res
pecting an establishment of reli
gion, or prohibiting the free ex
ercises thereof; or abridging the
freedom of speech, or of the
press; or the right of the people
peaceably to assemble and to peti
tion tbe government for a redress
of grievances. The third party
says that congress shall have this
power provided' it passes its act
twice. '. - . , . - . J

or abridged by the United States
or by any state on account of
