by Senator Curtis, the republican

The rice-presidential nominee
was given a warm welcome by the
crowds. In his first Minnesota vis

straight republican ticket and
mentioned by name Arthur E. Nel
son, republican nominee for the
senate, who is opposed by Senator
Shipstead, farmer-labor candidate.
Senator Curtis -made no refer

"Knowing the interest of the
people in this section of our coun

'I would have you know that
New--York protests with all Its
might and will oppose the pro

"Mr. Hoover made the follow

sion on October 20, 1920:
'I have fell the construction ot
this system (the St Lawrence
canal) would be of very great im
portance to the existing and to be
developed agricultural resources of
our entire country.'
'Governor Smith has since said:
1 have heretofore professed a
preference for, the all-America a
route, basing my views on engi
neers' reports made to me. The
correctness of these reports and
also of those favoring the St Law

WUliamette university's ; contract
with the Rockefeller Foundation
were outlined ,at a meeting of the
committee-of 15 from the board of
trustees and alumni of the uni
versity with President Doney of
that institution Tuesday after
noon. According to the agreement
the Rockefeller Foundation is to
give $350,000 when the university
has raised $650,000.
At the meeting yesterday a
committee of eight, with R. A.
Booth as chairman, was appointed
to raise the necessary money.
Pledges for this amount must be
made before Christmas this year,
and must be paid by October 1,
1929. The committee in charge
of the drive includes Dr. W. W.
Youngson, Dr. B. L. Steeves, Dr.
Carl G. Doney, A. L. Howarth,
Paul Wallace. J. A. C. Oakes and
M. R. De Long.
Dr. Howarth will obtain two
men who have had experience in
movements of this sort and will
inform Dr. Doney when he has
made arrangements with them. A
meeting of the special committee
will then be called to go forward
with the drive.
In the Forward Movement cam
paign of 1922. pledges for $1,000,
000 were obtained. From this
money the gymnasium was built.
improvements made on other
buildings, and old debts paid. Of
the pledges made in 1922, some
$200,000 were for deferred pay
ment Of the remaining $800,000
about $639,000 have been paid
to date. - Thus, as Dr. Doney in
dicated, the present campaign
must virtually raise the balance to
make $750,000 clear for endow
ment and the amount that .was
necessary for building the gym
nasium, repairing Waller hall and
aying former obligations.

Total of Five Circuit Clouts
Poled Out by Members
of Yankee Club

for Season of 1928
By ALAN J. GOULD
Associated Press Sports Editor
SPPORTSMANS PARK, St.
Louis, Oct. 9 (AP) ine -kM
said it with home runs to
day and brought the 192S world's
series to a crashing, record-bust-in?
conclusion with their fourth
straight triumph over the Card
Five crackling circuit clouts,
three of them by the one and only
Babe Ruth, lour oi tnem in io
successive innings, and all.ef
them sounding taps for the Red
birds, enabled the Yankees to win
bv the decisive count of 7 to 3,
and record a new world s series
achievement by making their sec
ond successive clean sweep over
national league champions.
The central and dominating
figure In the most smashing tri
umph of world's series nisiory,
was the mighty Ruth, his second
started- the downfall of Willie
Sherdel, game little southpaw of
the Cardinals, and his third equal
led the record of long range clout
ing that he himself set In the same
park two years ago.
The tide ?and drama of the
whole game turned upon Ruth in
the seventh inning in remarkable
lashlon, at a time when the Yan
kee punch was conspicuous by its
absence and when the Cardinals
were holding tenaciously to a one
run lead. Behind the clever pinch
pitching of Sherdel, gamely seek
ing to break the Yankees jinx,, the
Cardinals had revamped their
lineup in this last ditch fight and
they seemed in a fair way to suc
ceed until the Bambino lumbered
into the picture in the seventh.
Ruth had driven one ball out of
the park, a drive that cleared the
roof of the right field stands in
the fourth, and Sherdel was pitch
ing cautiously. One strike was
called, then a second dh a' floater
that the Babe let go by. Ruth
shifted his stance, looked up at
the scoreboard, and as he did so
Sherdel whipped another ball that
cut the heart of the plate. It was
a smart play but Umpire Pfirman,
behind the plate, had raised his
palms to indicate suspension of
play for the moment as Ruth,
though, still In the box, was ob
viously not in hitting position.
Sherdel, incensed to high pitch,
rushed in to protest, followed by
Captain Frlsch and the rest of
the Cardinals, arguing that Ruth,
by remaining in the box. had been
fanned. It was an angry debate,
cheered on by Ruth's handclaa
ping, but also to the accompaai
meat of wild boos and peers from '
the crowd as Sherdel went back
finally to the box. The south
paw, mad and upset, threw two
balls, then grooved one that the
Babe caught and lifted again over
the entire right field barrier.
Out of Box
Sherdel, unable to settle down,
was hit for another home run by .
Lou Gehrig, putting the Yankees
into the lead for the first time.
and walked dejectedly from the
box when Bob Meusel laced a
single to left.
One pitched ball thus had
turned the whole complexion of
the game, swiftly and surely.
