Won't say so, .:
ST. LOUIS. Oct. 1 "We lost
because we couldn't get that third
hit.' . , -:;
That was Manager Gabby
Street's explanation for ' the de
feat of the Cardinals in the first
game of the world series today.
Street, usually genial and affa
ble, was a gruff old sarge as he
marched in the clubhouse with his
conquered players following him
single file. They trooped into
showersnsullen and. disappointed.
'We had that game in the old
bag ; three, times today and It we
had been lucky enough to get that
third ; hit, pot , even ' Simmons'
home , run would have - been
enough to beat us," S.treet said..
'Wild Bill Hallahan, the pug-
nose left bander who shnt out the
athletics in one game of last
year's world series, will face the
world champions 'tomorrow if
Manager Street does not change
his mind meanwhile. . v
Derringer Cool, r t
Manager Aver -
"The kid Derringer pitched
great ball and deserved to win,"
Street explained. ."Nervous? Not
a bit of it. He was a cool as a
cucumber. I probably will shoot
him right back at them. We're
not (licked yetT" The series has
ust started. Tomorrow is anoth
er day, and Bill Hallahan will be
fn there for us. If hels right he
can't -lose." '
Praise for the defeated Card
inals and praise for his own
players was liberally given by
Manager Connie' Mack. Ha de
clared, however, that ' he had
nothing to say concerning his
pitching selection 'for tomorrow.:
It was generally accepted he:
would start George Earnshaw,
holding Rube Walberg in reserve.
Series Not Won
Yet Says Connie
"It is a great thing to win the
first game,- Mack said, "it giresi
my; club a real edge, but. we are in
tor! a tough series, judging from
the opposition the Cardinals gave
us today." -I - j
Mack declared that Derringer
impressed hint as hating the abil
ity to become one-ef the greatest
pitchers ot all times.
"But he tried j to do it an ny
hlurself," Mack added. "He real-
y tried too hard in those first
two innings. Now that he has
learned I believe he will give us
far more trouble before the series
is over, -. 1 !;-!
Mack said that Grove was not
the real Grove until the third in
ning, but from here on he was a
masterful pitcher.

And has Seen Thenr all in
Intervening Years, i
Woman Recalls j'
Despite 70 consecutive years of
attendance, glamour of Oregon's
state fair has not palled for Mrs.
Ruth A. Byrne, Salem woman, who
admits she still get si "bang" out
of the. big harvest jubilee, special
ly from the floral exhibits and the
horse show. - , '-- j'-U '''.-..-!'.
Mrs. Byrne, who lives at 1 2 39
Broadway alt by herself, ha at
tended every state! sair ! since her
parents came here from California
in 1880 and every single fair held
on the present site. She will be
78 years old November 13. '
Executives f M , the first fair
probably ' didn't know as much
about the fair performers as did
little Ruth Huffman," age seven. ;
For Mrs. Byrne' father's farm
adjoined the fairgrounds, and
when the first event was held' 'a1
group of men traveling with fairs
besought him, J. A. Huffman, to
let them 'stay in his large nine-
4foom "house. I - ! .:
Men Managing Fair , ; ,
Stayed at Her Home . . j
Pa took them In, and I can
still, remember the, way we pnt
beds aU over the house, and the
war the men filled the house to
overflowing. We had them the
first two years I'm sure, and may-
De longer,' wrs, cyme reeajis.
As Mrs. Byrne. talL thin and
white-haired, talked of the fair
she rocked to and I fro in an old
ash rocker, which came into the
family In ISfl. the year the
flood washed out Durrell' saw
mill near the big bridge in
Salem." n",.-- v
"Ye. I recall some of the first
fair readily.. The central, amuse
ment was more like a one-ring
circus and there was a .regular
menagerie along with it; not Just
horses." this fair-goer said.
Her eyes" sparkled as she re
called the horse events' of former
day:- . ! .
"Horse rings were lust out on
the ground. But I sure liked the
way the ladies rode then; they
used to look o pretty and grace
ful, especially for their Friday af
ternoon events. . . '
Spotted Morses ,j . , T
Seem Lost Glory i
"There were more pretty Pot
ted horses In the races those ear
lier days, an9 there wera plenty of
races, -not Just the;'how like we
have now at night 'But on the
whole it 1 much the same now-only-
many more horses."
Mrs Byrne attended the horse
show Tuesday night, when a spe
cial stunt during the events was
showing of old, old vehicles. That
pleased her immensely. - ana sne
says while people laughed and
Joked about, the old styles, she
had, ridden in every one of them
and knew that they weren't half
bad to ride In. . - s?- -
. Although Mrs. Byrne ha - nt-
fered with rheumatism the past
few years, she has been" able to
attend .the fair each year on her
day Tuesday. !I certainly en-
Joyed It thia year, only. my poor
old; feet and limbs felt tney nan
been Imposed on," she said.
