TOSSING AGAIN-Senior quarterback, Stan Noskin, will be at
the helm of ,the Wolverine attack in today's contest with MSU. In
last week's Missouri contest, he cohipleted eight passes of 16 at-
tempts. His Spartan counterpart, Dean Look, will be out of action.

his longer throws lacked accuracy
and his two runs netted minus
seven yards.
Wilson is backed up by Larry
Bielat, but he was not impressive
last week. Both Spartan quarter-
backs seemed to move their team
with little difficulty until it got
deep into Aggie territory. Besides
suffering from frequent fumbles,
State's offense repeatedly bogged
down within sight of the goal line.
That defect, however, was
shared by Michigan last week. The
Wolverines, directed by Stan Nos-
kin and John Stamos, were
stopped on eight potential touch-
down drives with only a field goal
Interceptions Hurt
Four interceptions contributed
greatly to the Wolverines' troubles,
and if Michigan is to be a threat
in the air today, it will have to
avoid completing passes to oppos-
ing players.
The winner of today's contest,
besides boosting its hopes for a
possible Conference title, will also
get a year's possession of the Paul
Bunyan trophy, Gov. G. Mennen
Williams' contribution to the
Michigan-MSU grid rivalry.
The losing team may well have
to wait another year before re-
claiming the glory both enjoyed
not very many seasons ago.

That's Coach of the Year Paull
Dietzel and his powerful Louisiana
State crew, who have raced off to
a spectacular start in defense of
their mythical national champion-
All-American Billy Cannon and
Max Fniegler, plus the Tigers' un-

led the way in two rugged vic-

game against Baylor should be
some what of a letup after last
week's 10-0 win over highly-rated
Texas Christian.
Can't Let Up
In fact, the main problem for
Dietzel will be to see that his club,

Senators May Move to Minneapolis

By The Associated Press


ST. LOUIS - The Sporting
News said yesterday the Washing-
ton Senators, long plagued by low
gate receipts, plan to move to
Minneapolis in 1960.
In a copyrighted story the base-
ball weekly said the Senators'
president Cal Griffith has served
notice of his plan on ! American
Assn. President Ed Doherty and
will advise the American League
realignment committee during the
world series in Chicago.
A similar proposal by Griffith
in 1958 was beaten down, with
Webb -and president Tom Yawkey
of the Red Sox in the forefront.
Batting Titles
NEW YORK - Hank Aaron of
Milwaukee captured his second
National League batting cham-
pionship and Detroit's Harvey
Kuenn won his first American
League title in 1959.
Hank, who led with a .328 av-
erage in 1956, finished this sea-
son with a .355 mark and a ma-
.or league high of 223 hits. He got
his last two safeties in the Braves'
final playoff game against Los
Angeles last Tuesday.
Kuenn won by a comfortable
margin over teammate Al Kaline.
Kuenn's average was .353 and Ka-
line's .327. Tito Francona of Cleve-
lan finished with a .363 mark,
but he had 399 official times at
bat and only 443 total appear-

ances. To be eligible for the title
a player must have a minimum of
477 total appearances including
bases on balls, sacrifices and hit
by pitches.
Ed Mathews of Milwaukee won
the National League home run
crown by hitting his 46th in the
second playoff game against the
Dodgers. He ended the regular
season last Sunday in a tie with
Ernie Banks of the Chicago Cubs.
Banks, however, finished on top
in runs batted in with 143.
Harmon Killebrew of Washing-
ton and Rocky Colavito of Cleve-
land wound up their season-long
duel for the American League
home run championship in a
deadlock. Both had 42. Jackie Jen-
sen of Boston drove in the most
runs, 112.
Evashevski Quits
IOWA CITY, Iowa-Coach For-

est Evashevski, who built Iowa
into one of the nation's top foot-
ball powers, announced yesterday
he is resigning when his present
contract expires in 1963.
The announcement, coming on
the eve of Iowa's important Big
Ten contest with Northwestern,
took the entire University com-
munity by surprise.
The announcement was made
in a brief letter from Evashevski-
to Harvey Davis, who is Provost
and acting as President of the
University, and members of the
Iowa board in control of athletics.
