game will be halfbacks Joel Ar-
rington and Art Wilson. Arrington,
a 185-pound Junior, was the team's
leading ground gainer last year
when he picked up 444 yards in
92 carries for a 4.8 average,
Wilson is a 185-pound senior,
who holds the North Carolina
state high school 100-yard dash

record. Last season fie gained 376
yards and this season has racked
up touchdown runs of 43 and 9
yards against South Carolina and'
Maryland respectively..
Practice Notes
Undoubtedly anticipating an
aerial barrage Saturday Bump
Elliott sent his squad through- a
lengthy pass defense drill yester-

day. The last portion of practice
was devoted to polishing the of-
fense.
Although the Michigan March-
ing band has recently been called
the prancing band its members
should be thankful they are not
part of the Duke University
Marching Band whose initials
cause them some embarrassment
around Durham.

SERIES STARTERS-It will be Art Ditmar starting for the
Yankees, and Vernon Law hurling for the Pirates as the two
teams meet at Forbes Field today in the first game of the 1960
World Series. Ditmar, a right-hander, posted a 15-9 record to
lead the New York pitching staff during the regular season,
while Law, also a righty, paced the Bucs with a 20-9 record.

IGRID SELECTIONS]
The Duke Blue Devils come to Ann Arbor having beaten three of
their rivals without coming close to losing.
If the Michigan offense can continue to roll, and if the defense
jells, however, there should be little trouble for the Maize and Blue
on Satuday. Or should there? That is for you to decide, along with
the winners of the other nineteen games on this week's Grid Picks
list.
Entries may be picked up at the Daily office and returned in
person to the second floor or mailed to Grid Picks, Michigan Daily,
420 Maynard St., Ann Arbor. They must be in by midnight Friday
to be eligible.
The person with the most correct scores will win two free tickets
to the Michigan Theatre, now showing "Elmer Gantry."
Here are this week's Grid Picks:

A crowd of nearly 40,000, pack-
ing every nook and cranny of
Forbes Field, will be on hand for
the encounter, with thousands of
others viewing the game over NBC
television. The contest is scheduled
to start at 12 p.m. (EST).
The Yankees, who have played
in 24 series and lost only six, are
favored to take the first game, and
the series.
The underdog Pirates have play-
in four series, winning two and
losing two. Their last appearance
in the classic was in 1927, when
they dropped four straight to a
Yankee club rated by many as
the best ever assembled.
The fact the New Yorkers ended
their season with a 15-game win-
ing streak may have something to
do with their role of favorite,
but this show of power and con-
sistency has failed to dampen the
enthusiasm in this city of rabid
fans.
The Bucs, they maintain, won
when they had to win all season,
and there is no reason to believe
they will change their habit with
the world championship at stake.
The first two games will be
played here. Friday the clubs have
an open date, with the Saturday,
Sunday and Monday games sche-
start for the Pittsburgh Pirates and
Monday game is necessary. If more
games are necessary they will be
played next Wednesday and
Thursday in Pittsburgh.
