Field Boss
NEW 'YORK (P)-Ralph Houk,
who led the New York Yankees
to three American League pen-
nants in three years as manager,
was named general manager of the
club yesterday and will be suc-
ceeded as field boss by Yogi Berra,
the long-time, colorful catching
Houk replaces Roy Hamey as
the general manager. Hamey re-
tired because of ill health. Berra's
appointment will be announced
At an elaborate press confer-
ence at a luxury hotel, Houk
acknowledged his successor al-
ready has been chosen, but he re-
fused to i'eval his identity. An-
other Yankee official, who can-
not be named, told the Associated
Press that Berra definitely was
the man.
"Yogi shpuld make a fine man-
ager," the Yankee official said.
"He's got a shrewd mind, is a
sound thinker and has the knack
of getting along with people. He
should prove to be a popular
choice with fans and players."
Houk was given a four-year
contract calling for an innual
salary of $50,000. The former
Army Ranger said his decision to
move upstairs was not one of snap
judgment. He was first offered the
job during the 1962 World Series
between the Yankees and the San
Francisco Giants.

Up in East Lansing MSU sput-

game in three years, led 3-0 at

Spartans couldn't be contained.
Third-string quarterback Dave
McCormick fired to fullback Roger
Lopes on the fake kick for an 18-

Illinois jumped into second place
in the Big Ten with a 16-6 vic-
tory over Minnesota at Cham-
paign. Leading 9-6 in the final
quarter, the Illini grabbed a fum-

tory and then scored on the next
play, quarterback Fred Custardo
hitting in from nine yards out.
Northwestern, a team that got
most people's nod for Big Ten
honors this fall, rolled to a 37-6

cat Pete Stamisov put on quite a
kicking show, booting three field
goals of 37, 43, and 35 yards. Be-

record, the kicks pushed Stami-
son's record to six out of eight
