Smith while the Tigers worked

TODAY'S TIGER STARTER, Earl Wilson, welcomes St. Louis pitcher Ray Washburn to Tiger
Stadium as the Series moves to Detroit for the next three games. Washburn (14-8), who has just
completed his best season in the major leagues, will go against Wilson in the third game. The
return to the home ballpark and the smaller outfield both contributed to making the Tigers 'a
slight favorite in the third game.

Wolverines hope to scuttle Navy, even series


None of the Midshipmen were
allowed to come up for the Michi-
gan-Navy clash today, so the Bri-
gade will be represented only by
their 'football team.
Something about not wanting to
hurt the Middies morale. Maybe
they should have kept the team
at home, too.
Their last two times out have
ended in 31-6 and 49-15 losses,
while the Michigan gridders un-

Halfbacks Charley Pittman of'
Penn State and Dave Bennett of

more than 150 yards against Navy.
Last year Wolverine halfback
Johnson cracked the Middies' de-
fense for 270 yards, practically
twice as much as Pittman or Ben-
nett. This year he may be going
for a perfect 300 game.
The opposition has scored 80,
points against Navy since the sea-
son's kick-off, which is hardly an
Impressive statistic to carry into
a game. Coach Bill Elias'' predic-
tion that "we have some unsettl-

have been more prophetic.

HALFBACK JERI BALSLY (left) and Captain and tight end M~ike Clark lead Navy into today's
game with Michigan at Ann Arbor. Balsly rushed for 86 yards and a touchdown in last year's game
with the Wolverines, which Navy won, 26-21. Clark, who caught two passes for 49 yards against
Michigan last year, is the leading Middie receiver thus far in 1968. However, the rest of the passing
corps, both throwers and catchers, was lost through graduation.

Graduation robbed Navy of its
