By The Associated Press
Jose Santiago, a talented grad-
uate of Boston's bullpen, will face
the favored St. Louis Cardinals'
Bob Gibson today at ancient Fen-
way Park in the opening game
of the Red Sox's first World Ser-
ies since 1946.
A standing room crowd of over
35,000 will shoehorn into the old
park in cloudy 70 degress weather
with only a slight chance of
showers late in the afternoon.
Game time is 1 p.m., EDT with
National Broadcasting Company
radio and television coverage. The
game will be seen locally on
Channel 4 and heard .on WWJ
Radio, 950.
Both clubs worked out in the
warm sunshine yesterday after-
noon after digesting the scouting
reports from the team of bird
dogs who have been watching the
other league for "weeks. Each
manager announced he would go
with his regular line-up.
'Green Monster'
"I told the boys to keep their
eyes on the ball and forget the
wall," said Manager Red Schoen-
dienst of the Cardinals. He was
referring to the handy' left field

ster, 315 feet down the left field
line and 37 feet high, so tempt-

of the Cards never had seen it

a little deceiving," Shoendienst
added. "I told them just to hit the

ager, said he would follow Santi-

game. Gary Bell, 13-13, will be
Boston's third pitcher in Sat-
urday's game at St. Louis. Lee
Stange, 8-10, will be the long re-
lief man.
The Cards will follow Bob Gib-
son, 13-7, with Dick Hughes, 16-
6, and then pitch either Nelson
Briles, 14-5, or left-handed Steve
Carlton, 14-9, in the third. Scho-
endienst said Briles would be the
third pitcher if he wasn't needed
in the bullpen in the first two.
Boston Hunch
Williams, a hunch player, went
along with the same lineup that
beat Minnesota - Sunday in the
final frantic game.
Jerry Adair, recovered from his
spike wounds of Sunday, will lead
off playing second base and Dal-
ton Jones, a fellow with a solid
bat, will be at third base. Ken
Harrelson, the $75,000 beneficiary
of Charley Finley's wrath, will
play right field and bat fourth.
R u s s Gibson, a 28-year-old
rookie, will catch in stead of the
experinced Elston Howard. Mike
Andrews, a regular most of the
year, will be on the bench.
Much of the Cardinals' scout-
ing report was devoted to trying
to stop Carl Yastrzemski, the
triple crown winner who has car-
ried the Red Sox all season.
"Yeah, his name was mentioned
a few times," said Schoendienst
in commenting on the report.
Schoendienst reported that Curt
Flood, his center fielder who has
been troubled by an injured right
arm, has, been throwing much
better lately. Flood said he was
ready to go all out. In recent
games he has been tossing the
ball to another fielder after mak-
ing a catch.

rapped six hits and drove in six
runs, putting the Red Sox into
the Series and himself into the
role of Triple Crown winner.
He batted .326, drove in 121
runs and slugged 44 homers, the
same number as Minnesota's Har-
mon Killebrew.
Cards Swinging
"They come . off the bench
swinging," Williams agreed. "They
don't go much for walks, They
go up to rip. You have to have
control and keep the ball down.
"I said all year we'd win more
than we'd lose. I still feel the
same. I just hope and think we
have the momentum."
Santiago,- first Pureto Rican
ever to start a World Series open-
er, is a Kansas City castoff and
bullpen refugee. The 27-year-old
right-hander started only 11
ganes, including Saturday's big
one with Minnesota, and appear-
ed in 39 others as a relief man.
His main stock in trade is a fast


A 69-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Meredith
(the "Golden Arm") Eiker to junior flanker Pat O'Donohue high-
lighted the Daily's Libels' first practice scrimmage yesterday.
The speedy O'Donohue (last seen heading for the UAC of-
fices in the League) is one of the many reasons for the Libels
being installed as five-touchdown favorites to destroy the UAC
Muggers in their annual grid classic.
Returning letter-winners for the Libels also include center Suc
Schnepp, tight end Carole Kaplan, and split end Lissa Matross. These
stalwarts, along with veterans Sue Elan and Carole Miegel should
help give the favored Daily squad their biggest win since the series
started in 1929.
Rumors that former Sports staffer Gretchen Twietmeyer will
abandon retirement plans to bolster the Libel line have influenced
local Grid-Pickers to make the Daily a unanimous choice to retain
the coveted Little Brown (waste) Basket.
Area Pickers are advised to note the overwhelming popularity
of the Libels in the polls (all other teams are barred from the
the voting), and to send in their ballots by Friday midnight.

gan theatre (presently showing "The Family Way") and two Cottage

Speedy Lou Brock, who led the
National League in stolen bases
with 52, will have the task of
playing in front of the 38-foot
left field wall. The fence is 315
feet from home plate dowh the
foul line and veers to 379 feet at
the flag pole in left center.
"The only problem with that
fence," Brock said with a smile,
"is if they hit every ball off it."

When asked if he had received
any special instructions on how
to play left field in Fenway Park,
Brock added, "there's only one
thing that can help you .. . that's
experience. You just don't learn
to play that wall in a day or two."
Brock, a left-handed batter who
finished the season with a .299
average, said when he's at bat
he doesn't think about short walls
- whether in right field or left
field. "I just, try to spray my
hits,"' he said.
Cardinal first baseman, Orlan-
do Cededa, a righthanded hitter,
also discounted the left-field
fence. "I haven't taken a look at
the fence," he said with a big

Bob Gibson, the double win-
ning hero of the Cards' 1964 Ser-
ies victory over the New York
Yankees, suffered a broken shin
bone in his right leg July 15 when
hit by a liner off the bat of Pitts-j
burg's Roberto Clemente. He got
back in action Sept. 6 and was,

The man Gibson must fear
most as Yastrezemski, like Cepeda

MVP award.
Gibson was impressed with the
hard-hitting left fielder "But," he
added, "if you got good stuff, you
can beat 'em."
In the last two games of the
season, the Boston left fielder
made it very plain that Fenway
Park certainly was not big enough
for both him and the Twins, and
there never was any question of

Red's Cigars Won't Work
For Boston
Nearly 36,000 Red Auerbach lovers will pile into Boston's Fenway
Park today to witness the first game of the 1967 World Series in the
hope that their now-beloved Red Sox can muscle their way past the
St. Louis Cardinals.
Whether or not Red Sox manager Dick Williams has captured
the. hearts of the Boston rabble as Auerbach did in guiding the Celtics
to ten NBA championships remains to be seen. Williams may be
lighting victory cigars but only some of the fans can see him in his
dugout hideaway. And whoever heard of being sure of victory with
only four minutes to play in a baseball game?
If the Cardinals are lucky enough to have anyone .seated in Bos-
ton's minute stadium, that one person would undoubtedly be August
Busch, the owner and warlord of St. Louis.
The'admission price?
Your guess is as good as mine. Probably a few bottles of beer
and a copy of the Cardinal battle plan for the Series written in
Spanish code by Orlando Cepeda for the benefit of such grand
old Spaniards as... Carl Yastrzemski?
And of course just for the pleasure of Mr. Busch, the Red Sox
publicity agents have decided to let the Cardinals play in Fenway.-
The high-spirited Red Birds will be trying to prove to many a Bos-
tonian that Eastern baseball ranks with Eastern football and chances
are the chances are pretty good for the Cards.
In the immortal words of Mr. Michelob . .. er . .. Busch:
"Oh, how mah boys is gonna love dat lef' field' wall."
And love it they will. Curt Flood, Mike Shannon and Julian Javier
all have the range to make left fielder Yastrzemski a rather busy Red
Sox. And then there is Cepeda. He could knock that ancient wall over
'f he tried hard enough.
And that only takes care of the right-handed batters. To
swing on the other side of the plate the Red Birds have a few
rather talented individuals including Lou Brock, Tim McCarver,
and Roger Maris.
Let's face it, El Birdos are used to hitting pop flies in Busch
Memorial Stadium that are out of Fenway Park. When El Red Sox
go to deep center in St. Louis they'll know they are in deep center.
As far as hitting is concerned, though, the Red Sox will be able
to match the Cards. Yastrzemski, George Scott, Rico Petrocelli, Mike
Andrews and Jerry Adair are formidable hitters and will not be easy
pickings for the Cardinal pitchers.
The point is, however, that the Sox don't usually score unless,
Yastrzemski comes to the plate with men on base and even a triple
crown winner can't hit the ball everytime.
If the hitting is somewhat even, then the answer to this
year's Series lies in the question of whether or not the Red Sox'
pitching staff can put a stop to the assault on the Fenway walls.
The Sox have Jim Lonborg, who posted 22 victories this season,
and then they have Jim Lonborg. If the Red Birds lose a game, it
will happen with him on the mound.
Jose Santiago has looked sharp recently and could win the
opener. But for that to happen, Boston's muscle 'will have to get to
El Birdos ace pitcher Bob Gibson before he can wear them out with
'his blazing fast ball.
Backing up Gibson are veterans Al Jackson, Larry (No-runs-for-
LA) Jaster, and Nelson Briles along with impressive rookie Dick
Hughes. El Birdos definitely have El Sox outclassed from the mound.
It looks like it may be a tough Series for the Red Sox. Manager
Dick Williams will need more than Red Auerbach's victory cigar and
political help from the Kennedys. In Fenway Park, Williams should ;
feel right at home watching balls ricochet off the left field wall, even
if they are from Cardinal bats. But when he gets to Mr. Busch's'
ranch down in Memorial Stadium, those wall-balls are just going to
be caught balls.
Although the Cards generally need seven games to win the
World Series, they may only need five this time.
"El Birdos, if y'all play good an' win this here Series, ah'll give
y'all a II' piece of St. Louie."
"Yes sah, Mr. Busch."

Everything from archery to
wrestling. That's what the Intra-
mural Sports Department offers
in its varied sports program. Stu-
dents can take part through team
sports, tournaments, informal
workouts, and co-recreation.
There are five leagues-social
fraternity, residence halls, faculty,
independent, and graduate -
through which interested male,
students can form teams to com-
pete in touch football, golf, track,
cross country, handball, swimming,
wrestling, and bowling, all offered
this semester.
The independent program is de-
signed for students wishing to
form an informal team. A $10 en-
trance fee is required to register
the team with the IM Department.
This fee -is good for the entire year
unless a team forfeits a sport.
There is still time for new teams
to register.
Forty fraternities take part in
a program of 23 sports, while the
three quadrangels and North Cam-
pus (a total of 24 houses) par-
ticipate in 25 sports.
Points are awarded for advance-
ment in each round of the cham-
pionship tournaments of each
sport; the team accumulating the,
most points in each division is the
yearly champion.
For ,those interested in specific
individual sports, golf, tennis,
handball, badminton, squash, bowl-
ing, fencing, and paddleball tour-
naments- are set up with the win-
ners designated as all-campus
Finaflly, for those individuals not
interested in organized teams,
there are informal workouts avail-
able, such as shooting baskets,
using the weight lifting equipment,
swimming, playing handball, pad-
dleball, squash, codeball, or work-
ing out in the gymnasium room.
The building is open from 8:00
a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday through
Each Friday night from 7:30 to
10:00 is set aside for the co-recre-
afnion program. The most popular
activities are swimming, volleyball
(with mixed teams), badminton,
and the trampoline.
For further information, book-
lets explaining the whole scope
of IM activities are available for
the asking at the IM Building, 600
E. Hoover Street.

WAA Facilities
Although the Women's Athletic
Association advertises a multi-
faceted program designed for and
by the students, it is not well
known to many on the University
campus because of its "no pres-
sure" policy.
"We feel that women partici-
pate because they enjoy the
comradeship of playing on a
team. They should not be pres-
sured into joining," comments
Miss Marie Hartwig, recreation
program advisor.
Another feature of the WAA
program is the emphasis on stu-
dent leadership. The WAA, com-
posed of students and faculty ad-
visors, plans the intramural and
club activities from the sugges-
tions 'of the students.
In the inter-house volleyball
(fall term) and basketball (win-
ter) tournaments, game times are
scheduled as much as possible
from the requests of participat-
ing teams. Sororities and resi-
dence halls that wish to enter
teams compete together in a two-
game elimination tournament.
Hours Set
These two sports were chosen
for inter-house competition, ac-
cording to Miss Hartwig, because
"most girls have had some con-
tact with volleyball and basket-
ball before they come here."
Speed swimming is also being
added to the inter-house sports
program this year. Competition
against nearby colleges will be in-
cluded also in the speed swim-
ming agenda.

Besides handling, the inter-
house tournaments, WAA over-
sees the ten clubs under its fall
term sponsorship. All of the clubs
provide intramural competition,
with Michifish, tennis, and field
hockey clubs providing intercol-
legiate schedules as well.
A third responsibility of WAA
is processing the requests of stu-
dents. "One request from the
girls," says Miss Hartwig, "'was
for open hours to shoot baskets,
play volleyball, bounce tennis balls
off the walls, and so on. Conse-
quently we have open hours defi-
nitely set at Barbour Gym on
Tuesday and at the Women's Ath-
letic Building Thursdays from
7-9 p.m."-
