back to the heights and reached
bis goal, the end of. the 18-year
trail by leading the Senators to
victory by a score of 4 to 3 in
12 innings of spectacular, pulse
gripping baseball. And when Earl
McNeeley, young outfielder from
the Pacific coast, drove In "Mud

'after the "mighty bat of "Bucky"
Harris had kept the Senators in
'their . greatest fight, the rookie

big crowd as it flooded upon the
field, then rushed jwlldly for the

gave unrestrained .rent to spirits
which, first . through a victorious
American league campaign and
then through one' of the most

of all time had been whipped to

greeted the news of the end ; of
the World war. I !

From every street in the city
rose the din of thousands cheering
the arrival of the Senators in base
ball's promised pand. The firing
of small cannon the crack of pis
tols, the bang qf firecracker, the
honk of automobiles and over
worked lungs of half-crazed base
ball fans were j blended, into the
deafening roar. i
Noise Is Intense
Horns and sirens were coupled
with racket makers, and all of
Washington was out to promote
noise. . r ;

Washington hkd wanted its ball

arrived at San Diego at 11 o'clock.

9:41 p. m. Twenty nine minutes
later the Shenandoah had covered

Brewer Withdraws in

torial Race
DES MOINES, Ipwa, Oct. 10.
(Bv Associated; Press.) A new
political turn developed today with
the withdrawal from the senator
ial ;race of L,uthetj B. Brewer of
Cedar Rapids, republican indepen
dent candidate.! In withdrawing
his name, Mr, Brewer denounced
Senator Smith ;W4 Hrookhart as
a "deBerter,, of bia' party aid gave
his followers and j the democrats
the campaign slogan "sic 'em
Steck." urging them to support
Daniel F. Steck' of OttumWa, the
democratic senatorial nominee.
Republican state headquarters
declined, tonight tp comment on
the day's; development. , The party
leaders had frowned uport Brew
er's candidacy when it was an
nounced and said they did not wish
to comment on : his withdrawal.
Nor would they speculate upon its
effect upon the election,
ing the exten of Brewer's
ing was problematical.
Mr. Steck. in recent campaign
speeches, has made a special ap
peal to republicans who dislike
Senator ' Brbokhart's repudiation
of the Cool id ge-DaWes" ticket To
this today was added the state
ment of Brewer that' Steck .had
