Win 20th Series,


Purdue Hopes To Rebound from Loss



Giants Don't
Score; Won
Last in 1922
(Continued from Page 1)
Ralph Houk, the Yankee man-
ager, came out to talk to his
pitcher with McCovey, a 6-4, 200-
pound left-handed slugger, next at
bat. McCovey had hit a towering
home run off Terry in the second
McCovey swung from his heels
and delivered a long foul that the
wind helped swerve into the right
field stands. Terry, pitching care-
fully, threw once more. The ball
rocketed back at Richardson, al-
most toppling the little second
baseman, but he held on and the
ball game was over.
A foot-or maybe six inches-
either way-and they would have
been dancing in the street at Mar-
ket and Power last night.
The lone run of this well-
pitched final game was scored in
the fifth with Bill Skowron comn-
ing home while the Giant infield
completed a double play on Tony
Kubek's smash to short.
Sanford had been throwing
goose-eggs, too, although his con-
trol was off and he was struggling.
In the third the Yanks had men
on first and second with two out
but Sanford escaped when Tom
Tresh grounded out.
Detroit To Bid
For Olympics
CHICAGO ()-Detroit, unsuc-
cessful in three previous attempts
to host the Olympics, was select-
ed yesterday to bid for the 1968
Summer Games against mounting
international competition.
Detroit and Lake Placid, N.Y.,
desiring the 1968 Winter Games,
were certified by the U.S. Olympic
Cpmmittee Board of Directors to
bid for the 1968 games at the In-
ternational Olympic Committee
meeting at Nairobi, Kenya, Oct. 13,
Although the United States has
not been host to the Summer
dames since 1932, when Los An-
geles was the site, U.S. Olympic
officials felt the itnernational bloc
will be difficult to overcome. Lake
Placid's chances for the Winter
Games appeared dim becuase the
1960 games were held in Squaw
Valley, Calif.-
Detroit won over Los Angeles,
San Francisco, Philadelphia and
Portland, Ore. The only bid against
Lake Placid came from Salt Lake
K. L. (Tug) Wilson, president of
the U.S. Olympic Committee, said
Detroit was chosen by the Board
of Directors "after a very lengthy,
wearing discussion." Wilson lav-
ished praise on the other presen-
tations although it was indicated
that the final vote was between
Detroit and Los Angeles.

Skowron opened the fifth with a
ground single to left, the second
Yankee hit. Clete Boyer promptly
followed with a single to left cen-
ter, movin gthe Moose to third.
Sanford then made his fatal er-
ror, walking Terry on four straight
pitches. That loaded the bases with
nobody out. If he had retired Ter-
ry, the subsequent double play
by Kubek would have eased him
out of the inning instead of yield-
ing the fatal run.
The Yanks finally got rid of


We Need Help
Today at 5:00 p.m., a meeting
for sports trainees and any oth-
ers wishing to join The Michi-
gan Daily sports staff will be
held on the second floor of the
Student Publications Building,
located at 420 Maynard Street
(next to the SAB).
Come one and all.
Sanford in the eighth when a bad
throw by Jose Pagan on Richard-
son's grounder, a single by Tom
Tresh off Pagan's knee, and a
right field single by Mickle Man-
tle loaded the bases with nobody
Alvin Dark, Giant manager, sent
for O'Dell, a lefty, and he turned
in a brilliant relief job. O'Dell
made Roger Mans force Richard-
son at the plate and then got out
of the inning on Elston Howard's
double play grounder to Jim Dav-
enport. O'Dell needed only five
pitches, all strikes, to escape.
The stiff wind, between 25 and
35 miles an hour, blew all after-
noon while the Giants lofted fly
balls into the gale. Of the 27 Giant
outs, 19 were on fly balls, includ-
ing five fouls, and four struck out.
There were only four ground ball
The victory meant a difference
of about $4,000 to each Yankee
and Giant. Although official cuts
are not announced until later by?
the office of Commissioner Ford
Frick, on the basis of 30 shares for
each, a Yankee would take home
about $12,000 and a Giant about
$8,000. There was $362,578.32 to be
divided among the winners and
$241,718.88 among the losers, a dif-
ference of $120,859.44.
This was the Yanks' 20th World
Series triumph in 27 classics and
the Giants' 10th defeat in 15 se-
ries. Not since 1922 have the
Giants beaten the Yanks, who hold
a 5-2 edge in their private rivalry
that used to be a "subway series"
but now means a coast-to-coast
jet run.
Proving once more that baseball
is a game of inches, a sensational
running catch by Tresh on Mays'
curling wind-blown drive to left
saved the ball game in the sev-
enth. The next hitter, McCovey,
then lashed a long triple to deep-
est center.
Tresh said he caught the ball
in the web of his glove.
After Tresh made contact with
that ball he disappeared from view
of the press box in the foul cor-
nner in left. Umpire Ken Burkhart,
working the foul line, gave the
"out" sign.

Turn about is fair play - but
don't tell that to the Purdue
Heading for a national rating,
the Bolermakers were dropped by
lowly Miami University of Miami,
Ohio. In early week predictions
the Miami team was rated as a
power in its own right-but cer-
tainly no match for powerful Pur-
due, challengers of Ohio State for
number one in the nation.
Purdue was downed 10-7 by an
inspired Miami squad, which now
deserves Purdue's Big Ten title of
Not Really
But the Purdue team is a Big
Ten team, so it can't be that bad.
This Saturday it will try to prove
it is better than last week's show-
ing. Their opponents? The Wolver-
ines, who were shut out by Mich-
igan State 28-0, arethe lucky
ones to draw the straw.
After being trounched by their
upstate rivals, the Michigan Wol-
verines find themselves in the
throes of depression. It appears
that the Old Gold and Black from
Lafayette will have little trouble
in dealing with the Maize and
Most of the Purdue team re-
member last year when the Wol-
verines eked out a 16-14 win.
Only three men were lost from
last year's backfield and the Boil-
ermakers are making the most of
their experienced backfield. They
fought a highly-rated Washington
squad to a 7-7 tie and then down-
ed Notre Dame 24-6 before last
Fullback Tom Yakubowski is
backed up by seniors Roy Walker
and Bob Plaskon. At quarerback
is Ron DiGravio, who is spelled
by Ron Meyer. Added to last year's
sextet of halfbacks, Charlie King
has proved to be a fast-moving
sophomore capable of keeping up
with the likes of Dave Raimey
Terry Marcoline, another nev

pass-catching ability.
Lost but Found
Up front, Mollenkopf
mainguard of last year's

coach Jack Mollenkopf with his

Raimey to run his off-tackle play.
Michigan coach Don Dufek, who
scouted Purdue in the Miami
game, rates the Boilermakers as
a solid team with a strong and
aggressive defense. He says that
it isn't easy to pick out one or two
star players because the team
plays as a team, not a group of
12 individuals.
On offense the Purdue squad
has a vavriety of styles to throw
at the Wolverines. Last: year they
used the spread, or shotgun, for-

The line would have to be rated
as heavier than Michigan's but
with almost the same amount of
speed. On defense, Nathaniel Jack-
son is thrown in to plug up those
big holes and his 253-lb. frame
doesn't leave much space for

mation against Michigan and have
used it several times this year ;n
an effort to upset the timing of
their opponents.
The mainptay of the Purdue of-
fense, however, is the Wing-T
featuring end sweeps, fullback
power plays, and many passes.
(The Wolveri ies have proved weak
in pass defens- in past weeks.)
Forest Farmer and Harold Wells'
are part of the reason why Purdue
has such a potent passing attack
and why it is favored Saturday,
even after its defeat last week.

CHICAGO (A)-The squabble be-
tween the NCAA-supported Fed-
eration movement and the AAU
remained at a stalemate last night
after a two-hour discussion on the
question of certification of track
and field athletes for Olympic
Meeting before the U.S. Olympic
Committee Board of Directors, the
AAU reaffirmed its stand that it
would not certify any athlete for
international competition who
competed in a Federation or "open"
meet. The Federation supporters
said they were going ahead with.
their plans .anyway.
The result was that K. L. (Tug)
Wilson, president of the U.S. Olym-
pic Committee, was instructed to
appoint a study committee-a
semi-arbitration board - which
would meet within the next two
weeks to try to work out a solu-
tion. Board members were not im-
mediately named.

Last week we took the wraps off our secret, surefire system for
picking the grid selections and revealed it to the world. The effect
was immediate. No one attempted to follow it for more than three
games in a row. The Daily staff even deserted it. So naturally some-
one won the tickets to the Michigan Theater and the subscription to
Football News. This week, however, we have decided to become even
trickier. So the selections are even more difficult. They should take
you several hours to figure out, and will also completely confuse you.
But fill out your entry and mail it or deliver it in person to The
Daily, 420 Maynard before Friday midnight, Oct. 19, even if you have
to pick them quickly. It will also probably increase your score if
you just circle the team which is first in alphabetical order (which
is the real Daily system, and is guaranteed, if everyone follows it, to
allow everyone to win the prizes and will give the sports staff a big
