AN OBSTACLE IN UCLAN'S PATH-Junior tackle John Hout-
man, of Adrian, is one of seven veterans in Michigan's starting
.line who will be out to make the going rough for the invading
UCLAns in their game today at Michigan Stadium.

Sectional Battles Top Slate

Intersectional battles dominate
the college football scene today, as
the nation's top teams test their
strength in the four corners of
the country.
Top games include Rice at
Georgia Tech; Mississippi at Ken-
tucky; Oklahoma at Notre Dame;
and Stanford at Oregon State.
Rice will have its hands full
with Bobby Dodd's Engineers, but
experience at quarterback and one
of the Southwest's best lines
should ease the tension on the
Owl's side of the field. Johnny
Vaught's squad will try to make.
it two straight against the Wild-
cats in Lexington. Old Miss blank-
ed Arkansas 16-0 last week.
No Revenge
In the midwest, Oklahoma in-,
vades South Bend to meet the
fighting Irish. The Sooners still
cringe at the thought of having
their famous winning streak of
Tommy McDonald's era snapped
by Notre Dame. It does not appear
that Bud Wilkinson's squad is
going to betough enough to get
revenge this year, however.
On the West Coast, OregonI
State, pre-season favorites to cop
the Pacific Coast Conference
crown, tackles a determined but


weak Stanford team. Converting
to the T formation will enable
Oregon State to use both their
star tailbacks of last year in the
same backfield. They will be tough
to beat.
League Action
The Atlantic, Coast Conference,
on the other hand, kicks off its
league action featuring three
games which could do much to
determine the top teams In the
conference. Always tough -Clem-
son meets Maryland, who still
holds fond memories of title
The Duke Bluedevils invade
Charlottesville to oppose a proud
Virginia team which finally broke'
its famous 28 game losing streak
at the expense of William & Mary.
The toughest one to pick will be
the annual meeting of North
Carolina and North Carolina
State. The Tarheels are tough this
year, but it will take some doing
to tame State's Roman Gabriel,
everybody's pick for All-America
Other top games include Baylor
at Pitt; Boston University at
Army; Syracuse at West Virginia;
and Yale hosting the University of

Wisconsin's Miller to Richter
combination will meet its first
real test today, as the Badgers
host the perennially tough Spar-
tans of Michigan State.
This will be the only Big Ten
conference game this weekend.
The other games have Washing-
ton at Illinois, California at Iowa,
Missouri at Minnesota, Boston Col-
lege at Northwestern, Texas
Christian at Ohio State, and, of
course, UCLA at Michigan.
Home Team
Wisconsin, fresh from a 7-0 win
over surprisingly tough Utah, will
have the advantage of being the
home'team. They also will have
the advantage of a game's exper-
But Michigan State will be up
for the game; make no mistake
about that. Spartan coach Duffy
Daugherty has said that his boys
were getting very tired of playing
themselves, and were eager for
26 Returning
Daugherty will have 26 letter-
men returning to his loaded squad.
The outcome of the game will
be of utmost importance. It will
show just how powerful the Spar-
tans are and it will also prove if
the Badger's com]Ao is what pre-
season forecasters have built it
upto be.
Washington, -after being trounc-
ed, 13-6, by Purdue, will see if
they- can do any better against
Illinois. Pete Elliott, Illini coach,
has named junior Ron Taliaferro
offensive signal caller. Mel Rom-
ani, a defensive end for the past
two years, will be Illinois, defen-
sive quarterback.
Long Trip Home
Iowa, picked number one in the
nation by the weekly AP Poll, is
rated a strong favorite to defeat
California. The Hawkeyes, with
new coach Jerry Burns, will have
a veteran backfield and a veteran
line. The Golden Bears will prob-
ably have a long trip home.
The Missouri-Minnesota game is
rated as a true toss-up. One As-
sociated Press Swami says that
Minnesota will win, 14-13, while

another picks Missouri, 14-13. So
who knows?
t Toughest in Years
Boston College has taken on its
toughest schedule in years. Last
weekend, the Eagles had a very
impressive win against Cincinnati.
But this week it is the Big Ten.
Northwestern has lost its triple-
threat quarterback, Dick Thorn-
ton, and will have only four start-
ers returning. However, BC has
not scheduled a Western Confer-
ence team in years, and today's
game should prove to be quite an
experience for the erstwhile
Texas Christian, which upset
Kansas last weekend will move
into Buck ye Stadium. OSU coach
Woody Hayes has said, "It will
take an. awfully good teamA to beat
us." The question is how good
is TCU.

NEW YORK (P)-Casey Stengel
was back in baseball yesterday, a
year after the New York Yankees
fired him because he was too old.
At the age of 71 the grizzled
oldtimer has agreed to a one-year
contract with the New York Mets.
Thus George Weiss and Stengel
are re-united with the new Na-
tional League team that will com-
pete with the Yankees for the fans'

men on the way out. You don't
expect to get too many budding
(Mickey) Mantles in this grab bag.
You have to have a fellow they
can respect and look up to.
"We're going to have to play in
the Polo Groulds for at least a
year. You want a different type of
ball club there than in a larger
stadium. We should be able to get
some big pull hitters who can
make some pitchers sorry.",
When reporters reached Stengel
at the North Hollywood, Calif.
bank of which he is a Vice-Presi-
dent, he was asked why he was
coming back. The answer was un-
distilled Stengalese:
"Why did I decide to go back
into baseball?" "I'd say the en-
thusiasm of Mr. Weiss and the
owners and they .are really inter-
ested in baseball which was also
the fact with Gene Autry and Bob
Reynolds who are a real inspira-
tion to baseball." (Autry and Rey-
nolds own the Los Angeles Angels
of the American League.)

Weiss, in character, wouldn't
even hint at Stengel's salary.
Asked if it was as much as the

Weiss said the lease on the new
park would be settled "next week,

would be broken the next day. In
the meantime, the Polo Grounds

First item on the program of
the Weiss-Stengel team will be to
select the players made available
by the other National League
teams. This selection will be made
by New York and Houston on al-
ternate picks the day after the
World Series ends.
Lists of the players will be made
available to the Mets on Monday

come to town from his Glendale,
Calif., home' for a meeting with
the scouting staff.
"Casey is the ideal man to han-
