(Chicago, Illinois) Carl Sandburg's comment with regard to Chicago noted. Cubs and White Sox together have won fewer world championships than Yankees won in 1960's. Some Cubs fans remember end of World War II for Allied victory and Cubs last pennant. [Cubs outfielder Bobby MURCER - sees no reason club shouldn't fold, if it's ahead of clubs like Saint Louis, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia.] Last time White Sox and Cubs met in World Series, in 1906, Sox won. [Sox owner Bill VEECK - says it's case where sometimes have-nots rise up and conquer the mighty.] Entertainment, besides game, for fans at Sox Comiskey Park noted.
