Plunkett added, "Sure I was

Despite the loss, Coach Ral-
ston was elated over Plunkett's
performance calling it h i s
"greatest game ever."
The loss to Purdue should not
be a significant one, since the
Pacific-8 schedule starts t h i s
week with t h e Indians going
against the Trojans of Southern

the eventual conference winner
and Rose Bowl representative.
PLUNKETT IS very intent on

Mets' pitcher Jerry Koosman.
In a moment of inspired revela-

he and fellow Met pitcher Tom
Seaver would throw shutouts.
Once again the University Activities Center, as it has so many
times in the past, is providing a much needed service to the University
Community. It seems as though the morning garbage wrappings,
otherwise known as the daily, has misled it's entire readership, which
by the way totals about 17 according to a recent UAC survey, by in-

the lippy libels over the UAC MUGGERS.

UAC should be rated a 2-1 favorite. What's more important, UAC

Hoak, 41, was found slumped over the wheel of his car in the
Shadyside area of Pittsburgh where he lived and police rushed him to
a nearby hospital.
A hospital spokesman said Hoak died of a heart attack.
A former third baseman, Hoak entered the major leagues as a
Brooklyn Dodger in 1954 and played with Chicago Cubs and Cincin-
nati Reds before he was traded to the Pirates in 1959.
In 1960, as the Pirates became the world champions, he batted
.282, drove in 79 runs and cracked 16 home runs.
Just Wednesday night Hoak said on a television broadcast he was
the man for the Pirate job.
"I'm the man for the job. I don't know if the General Manager
Joe L. Brown has picked the man yet, but I'm the man."
* LAS VEGAS - Bookmakers established Baltimore yesterday
as a 7-5 favorite to win the opening game of baseball's World
Series opening tomorrow in Baltimore.
The American League champions are 8-5 to win the series. Gamb-

Baltimore is 7-1 to take the best 4 of 7 series in four straight
games, and New York is 15-1 for the same bet.
* ST. LOUIS - Outfielder-portrait artist Curt Flood expressed
"surprise and personal disappointment" at the announcement of his
trade from St. Louis to Philadelphia Wednesday and said he would
retire from baseball.
"When you spend 12 years with one club, you develop strong
ties with your teammates and the fans who have supported your ef-
forts over a period of years," the Redbird co-captain said.
"As you know, I'll soon be 32 years of age. In addition, with my
playing days nearing an end due to physical considerations alone,
' I've had to think of my own and my children's future.
"Consequently, I've felt that I should give more time to the
