Greatest Onslaught in His
tory of World Series
Brings 10-8 Win
Athletics Go Into 3-1 Lead
With Cubs' Hopes Rap
idly Fading
By ALAN J. GOULD
Associated Press Sports Editor
SHIBE PARK, Philadelphia,
Oct. 12 (AP) The bubbling
world's series hopes of the Chi.
eago Cubs were scattered all ov
er Shlbe park today by a combin
ation of lightning, cyclone and
tidal ware in the wildest inning
of baseball championship history.
When they had picked them
selves up sometime later, dazed
and reeling, the Cubs found that
the Athletics had broken all re
cords by scoring ten runs on ten
hits in the seventh Inning off four
pitchers, coming from' behind to
win the fourth game by a count of
10 to 8 and taking a lead of three
games to 1 in the World's series
conflict.
Hope Appears Slight
As Seventh Starts
Going into the seventh inning
eight runs behind, their reteran
spltballer, old Jack Qnlnn, a
knockout victim of Cub cloutera
and their net efforts showing a
grand total of three hits off the
fast balls of Charley Root, there
didn't appear more than the pale
ghost of a chance for the Athletics
to win and prevent the Cubs
from making it two straight, ty
ing the series.
If ever a club looked beaten, it
was the A's, yet with a savagery
that has never before been du
plicated in the annals of the
orld's series, they leaped upon
Root, drove him from the box,
knocked out his two successors,
Art Nehf and Sheriff Blake, in
short order, and were stopped by
Pat Malone only after 15 men
had gone to bat.
Al Simmons Starts
Fireworks With Homer
A home run by Al Simmons to
the left field stands was the first
bolt of lightning that hit Root.

Tomorrow
Monday Mrs. Earl Adams of Sil
verton will replace her wood
burning range with a brand new
Hotpoint automatic electric range
as a result of winning first place
in the layer cake division of the
baking contest conducted by the
Statesman cooking school. Mrs.
Adams won because of the fine
texture and rare flavor of her
cake. Two years ago her sister,
Mrs. J. B. Hansen, of Salem, won
first prize in the cake baking eon
test held by the Statesman. Think
ing this indicated a family train
ing In cooking the Statesman re
porter asked Mrs. Adams if she
got her training In cooking at
home.
"My mother, the late Mrs. A.
F. Jans, was considered a wonder
ful cook. My sister and I learned
how to cook from her, and like
her we dearly lore, to cook. Moth
er was possibly not so skilled in
cooking meats as In baking and
other lines, and I bare the same
qualifications, getting better luck
with cakes than meats."
Mr. Adams, the mere man who
gets to enjoy all his wife's good
cooking, has a clothing store in
Silverton. There are two other
very important members of the
family, a girl and boy, who no
doubt are tbe enry of other Sil
verton boys and girls because they
get to eat their mother's prize

IRE DlSptl
Disastrous Hitting Spree by
Athletics Riles Fans
In Chicago
CHICAGO, Oct. 12. (AP)
Nothing short of another boot of
the lantern by Mrs. O'Leary's
cow, a kick that set Chicago on
fire could have exceeded the con
sternation of Cub fans as they lis
tened to radio accounts o f the
Bruin debacle in the serenth inn-
ng of today's world series game
at Philadelphia.
Clustered around the radios in
their homes, hotel lobbies, shops
and on street corners, the thous
ands cheered feverishly as the
Bruins piled up what appeared to
be an eight run lead in the six and
one half innings. Then came the
crash and except for the few who
were still hopeful the throngs dis
persed duxafounded and disgusted
"Aw, tune in on some football
game," shouted several fans who
composed a crowd of several thou
sand which listened to a radio re
port from newspaper.
Betting oaas which rose pro
hibitively in favor of the Athletics
after the first two games and then
dropped to more reasonable pro
portions after the Cub victory yes
terday again bounded to 10 to
that Connie Mack's men would win
the series. Odds were offered at 5
to 3, too, that the Cubs would not
win another game.
However, the dwindling band of
faithfuls still stuck to their hopes
that Joe McCarthy and his band
would come back Monday to win
and bring the big circus back to
Wrigley, field for decision. They
pointed out that their heroes were
hitting and that they would stage
another comeback.

Everything Is In Readiness
After Ten Days Delay
In Alaskan Port
Aviators Expect to Land at
Seattle Field Early in
. Afternoon
CRAIG, Alaska. Oct. 12. (AP)
After ten days' delay, the four
Russian aviators flying the plane
"Land of the Soviets" hoped to
night to take off on the 450 mile
flight to Seattle at a. m., tomor
row morning, Paeifle standard
time. They expect to reach Seat
tle between 1 and 2 o'clock in the
afternoon. The plane was forced
down at Waterfall, October 3,
and about 15 miles from here, a
short time after it had left Sitka
for Seattle.
Stormy weather bad delayed the
fliers' installation of a new mo
tor sent from Seattle, but work
was expected to be completed in
time for the scheduled take-off.
The plane will follow Hecata
Strait and the outside of Vancou
ver island to Cape Flattery and up
to the Straits of Juan ae Fuca to
Puget Sound and Seattle. The
Craig wireless will stand by with
the mast guard cutter Cygan
from 5 a. m., until after the fliers
have left.
The Cygan arrived at Craig this
afternoon and after taking on sup
plies left for Waterfall to deltiver
messages tor the fliers.
Editor of
Magazine
Visits City
This might be a little commun
ication addressed solely to writers.
But then there are others who
may be interested, one way or an
other, so the "Writers Only" has
been erased.
It's like this: One Oscar Graere,
editor of one of those great big
national magazines that roll from
the presses back In New York and
find their way to newsstands In
Salem and other places, happened
to be in this city Friday and Sat
urday. The magazine, by the way.
Is the Delineator. While Graeve
happened to be In Salem, along
happened a reporter, and some of
the things the magazine editor
had to say might be recorded
thusly:
That the trip which he is now
enjoying is Mr. Graeve's first Jour
ney west of Chicago; that he flew
orer the T. A. T. route to Los An
geles, where he tarried awhile be
fore hopping another plane for
San Francisco. In that city he was
a guest of Peter B. Kyne.
And that leads to another point:
Graere belieres that an editor
should make a few risits to the
men and women authors who keep
the magazine on the sales racks,
so he's in the west to meet a few
of them. This mission brought him
through Salem, and he stopped to
hare a chat with his old friend.
Brigadier . General George A.
White, whose guest he was while
here.
Speaking of writers. Mr. Graere
says tbe west hasn't enough of
them; that the middle west baa a
few; the south none; and New
York scores too many. This he at
tributes to the fact that no sooner
does a western, southern or mid
dle western writer begin to "ar
rive than New York beckons, and
wins. More writers are lost than
made in that big city, the Delin
eator editor belieres. Because?
Well, several reasons: the writer
who adopts New York Is out of bis
element; he is apt to forget writ
ing in faror of shop In that city;
and too. New York's famous
writer-cliques are 'often responsi
ble for the less frequent click of
the typewriter.
"Oregon's scenery Is beautiful."
Mr. Graere began but decided

the dark aa to whether tbe Salem
high school schedule will be
amended to give high school pu
pils a chance to take music les
sons at hours ' which most of the
