LLOYD GRAFF
The Impend ing Trade
Of Milton Plum
There's a little prophet in each of us. We all feel the urge to
exhibit the Amos, Nehemiah, and Isaiah proclivities socked away in.
our frontal lobes.
And this is my moment to reveal the future as I see it. Step
right up and get your predictions, fresh and hot.
This Saturday Michigan will slaughter Michigan State 6-3,
and Dick Kenney will step on a tack.
Earl Battey will confess that he has a sore arm after Maury
Wills steals seven bases in the first two 'games of the World Series.
After the Twins are shut out in four straight, Sam Mele will say,
"the Dodgers have pretty fair pitching, but we were just in a slump."
Someone will say Jim ' Brown is over the hill and the next
week Brown will ramble for 200 yards.
The Detroit Lions will trade Milt Plum for the seventeenth
draft choice of the San Francisco 49ers. After watching Plum in
practice, the 49ers'will say they were rooked. They will be correct.
John Lindsay will become Mayor of New York City and wish
Rockefeller had the job.
The Jews will be vindicated as Christ-killers after 2000 years
to the dismay of the Mohammedans, and hardly a soul will really
care.
Bill Russell will claim his knees are shot and still block eight
shots a game.
The Detroit Pistons will lose more games than the New York
Knicks and will fire Dave Debusscher as coach. Reggie Harding
will become the next Piston head. He will appoint Joe Don Looney
to enforce discipline.
Robert McNamara will become President of the University after
Richard Nixon declines.
In thirteen years the Atlanta Braves will move to Tijuana to
capitalize on a, big TV deal.
Lew Alcindor will be good-very good-but not as great as
'Wilt Chamberlain. UCLA coach John Wooten will be hung in effigy
if his team loses more than two games a year for the next four years.
Vinegar Bend Mizell, Art Houtemann, Ransom Jackson, Ty Cline,
Manny Mota, Eddie Brinkman, Don Zimmer, and Mildred Douglas
will not be admitted to the Cooperstown Hall of Fame.
Next year, after Bob Hadrick graduates, everybody will see that
Bob Griese was an overrated quarterback.
President Johnson will invite Mao Tse Tung, Ho Chi Minh,
General Westinoreland, Johnny Carson, Willie Mays, Sam Huff,
Herman Kahn, and Pogo down to the ranch for a barbecue, where
they'll "reason out" Viet Nam.
A social psychologist will show a correlation between racial
discrimination and bad breath. A competing psychologist will then
get a huge grant to show that very few neurotics smoke pipes. He
will then go to work for Kay Woodie.
And some gullible person will take me seriously and write a
nasty letter about being such a wiseoff cynic when I'm really just
a romantic poet turned sportswriter because there's nothing roman-
ticker than sports around.

BASEBALL BRIEFS:
Drysdale To Start; Monbo Traded

Buntin Writes Name;
Ends Long Holdout

By The Associated Press
The Los Angeles Dodgers, forced
to pass over Sandy Koufax, have
tapped Don Drysdale to pitch the
opening game of the World Series
against fearless Jim Grant of the
Minnesota Twins at Metropolitan
Stadium Wednesday.
Drysdale, a 23-game winner and
the right-handed half of the
Dodgers' ace pitching pair, got
the call because Wednesday is
Yom Kippur, the most solemn
Jewish holy day. Kouf ax, who is
Jewish, will remain out of action.
Thief
The key to the Dodgers' speed-
centered attack is shortstop Maury
Wills, who stole 94 bases this sea-

son, and it is more than likely
that he will wind up in a duel with
his opposite number at shortstop,
the Twins' Zoilo Versalles. Ver-
salles has been a major factor for
Minnesota, which this year, used
speed to complement their explo-
sive attack. He has stolen 26 bases
and is one of six Twins with 16
or more homers. The Dodgers can
boast only two players with as
many as a dozen, but pitching
gives them an edge in the ratings.
The Dodgers are 13-10 favorites
to beat the Twins in the Series.
Monbouquette to Detroit
In Detroit, the Boston Red Sox
traded pitcher Bill Monbouquette
to the Tigers for outfielder
George Thomas and infielder

George Smith last night.
The deal was the first for the
Sox since Mike Higgins was fired
as general manager Sept. 16. Bos-
ton Manager Billy Herman prom-
ised several more. He said Mon-
bouquette was tradedebecause the
Red Sox plan to accent youth next
year.
Monbouquette won 10 games
and lost 18 for the Red Sox, who
finished ninth in the American
League. The 29-year-old right-
hander compiled a .3.69 earned
run average in 228%3 innings.
Sisler Fired
Elsewhere, Dick Sisler was fired
yesterday as manager of the Cin-
cinnati Reds, apparently because
of the club's failure to win the
National League pennant. No
successor was named.
The Reds, who were pennant
contenders a week before the sea-
son ended, finished in fourth
place, eight games behind the
Dodgers. Sisler, 45, former major
league star, -'blasted the Reds
pitching for its failure to come up
to expectations. "The pitching
just wasn't there, and believe me,

DETROIT {RP)-Former Wolver-
ine standout Bill Buntin has end-
ed his prolonged holdout and
signed a two-year, reported $30,-
000 contract with the Detroit Pis-
tons of the National Basketball
Association.
The 67"" all Big Ten center had
differed with the Detroit front
office for three weeks, before com-
ing to terms. Originally he had
asked $30,000 for a one year con-
tract.
Neither Buntin nor his lawyer
were available for comment on the

contract. Detroit Coach Dave De-
Busschere indicated that Buntin
would be pressed into service im-
mediately, as the Pistons near the
conclusion of their exhibition
schedule.
The 230-pound Buntin led the
Michigan basketball team to two
consecutive Big Ten champion-
ships. He averaged 20.1 points per
game last season, and was the
Pistons' first draft choice last
May.

the Dodge Rebellion?

Forget all you've seen and heard about '66 cars.
Because Coronet is heret . . sharp, smart and
sassy, the greatest thing from Dodge since Year
One. Loaded with luxury the higher-priced cars
haven't caught onto yet. With a choice of five
engines, each one designed to make the walls of
Dullsville come tumbling down. And with a whole
slew of standard equipment that used to cost
extra. Like an outside rear view mirror. A padded

dash for extra safety. Variable-speed electric
windshield wipers and washers. Backup lights.
Turn signals. Seat belts, two front and two rear.
And, as some extra frosting on the Coronet cake,
a 5-year or 50,000-mile warranty.*
Enough said to get you really tempted? Now
let's get away from the look-alike, drive-alike,
first-cousin cars with Coronet, a car with a lively
personality all its own.
