Anderson agrees entirely with Hen-

emphasis on personal discipline. You
have to prepare your body for much

All of these former Wolverines had to
prove themselves again when training

even more to prove because the two-
time All-American was drafted all the

earlier but when we went to camp, we
still had to show ourselves."

scoring triple by Alan Trammell and

Rusty Staub drove in four runs for
Detroit, which tied the game at 5-5 with
three runs in the seventh inning, thanks
to shoddy play by Baltimore outfielders.,
With one out, Trammell hit a high fly
which went for a triple when Ken
Singleton and Larry Harlow got their
signals crossed and the ball fell safely.
After a run-scoring single by Steve
Dillard and a single by Ron LeFlore,
Staub hit a two-out fly to left which Pat
Kelly appeared to lose in the lights, the

while Gossage, 10-11, took the loss.
The Yankees scored three runs in

Boston's Bob Stanley, making only
his second start of the season, left the
game after Al Woods led off the eighth
with a double. Hassle then retired Roy
Howell on a grounder, struck out John
Mayberry and got Otto Velez on a fly lto
center to end the threat.
Boston took a 4-3 lead in the eighth in-
ning. Carlton Fisk singled off Toronto
starter Jim Clancy, raced to third on

Royals 4, Twins 2
BLOOMINGTON-Frank White hit
his seventh home run of the season in
the seventh inning to lead the Kansas
City Royals to a 4-2 victory over the
Minnesota Twins in the first game of a
doubleheader last night.
White's blast off Darrell Jackson, 4-5,
snapped a 2-2 tie and helped Larry Gura
raise his record to 15-4. Gura checked
the Twins on six hits as Kansas City
posted its 10th victory in its last 12
games and lowered its magic number
for clinching a third straight West
Division title to four.
Minnesota took a 2-0 lead in the
second inning on a sacrifice fly by
Glenn Borgmann and an RBI single by
Bob Randall. But John Wathan scored
Amos Otis with a single in the fourth
and Kansas City tied the game in the
sixth when Hal McRae and Amos Otis
walked, moved up on a double steal and
McRae scored on an error by Twins
third baseman Larry Wolfe.
NEW YORK (AP) - Coach John
Robinson of Southern Cal is looking for
top-ranked Alabama to pull some sur-
prises in their nationally televised foot-
ball game today, while Bear Bryant is
hoping his team won't be embarrassed.
Alabama, Robinson said, "attempts
to surprise you a lot-particularly in
big games. In fact, I really admire their
ability to surprise people in big games.
Coach Bryant uses all the weapons that
The game can be seen on Channel 7
following the Michigan-Notre Dame
telecast beginning at 12:30 p.m.
DESPITE VICTORIES over two
other ranked teams, Nebraska and
Missouri, Bryant said No. 7 Southern
Cal 'will embarrass us if we haven't
improved. They are a lot stronger than
anybody we've played so far."
He said he is especially fearful of
Charles White, the latest in a long
tradition of flashy Trojan tailbacks.
Alabama managed to hold White to 63
yards in upsetting then No. 1 ranked
Southern Cal 21-20 a year ago. White
has averaged 140 yards a game in the
Trojans' victories over Texas Tech and
Oregon this season.
Meanwhile, runner-up Arkansas
visits Oklahoma State while Oklahoma
and Penn State, which are tied for third
in the ratings, are home against Rice
and Southern Methodist, respectively.
SIXTH-RANKED Texas entertains
Wyoming in a night contest while No. 8
UCLA visits Kansas, No. 9 Texas A&M
is at Boston College for a night game
and 10thranked Louisiana State hosts
Wake Forest under the lights.
Twelfth-ranked Nebraska is the only
Top Twenty team with the week off.
Elsewhere, No. 11 Pitt entertains
Temple, No. 13 Florida State is at
Miami, Fla., No. 15 Washington at In-
diana, No. 16 Ohio State at Minnesota,
Mississippi at No. 17 Missouri, No. 18
Maryland at North Carolina in a key
Atlantic Coast Conference showdown,
San Jose State at No. 19 Colorado and
No. 20 Iowa State at Iowa.
Bryant said the Crimson Tide "didn't
make as much progress as I hoped"
between an opening-game 20-3 triumph
over Nebraska and last week's 38-20
victory over Missouri.
"We played pretty sorry for about
five minutes in the second quarter, and
if we do that against USC it will be a
long afternoon for us.

"We have to continue to improve, and
that means not fumbling the football
and getting silly penalties like we've
done in the first two games. Those
things will get us beat if we don't
straighten them out."
THE SHOE IS on the other foot for
Penn State, which had something to
prove in whipping Ohio State 19-0 last
week., Southern Methodist also has
something to prove-namely, that it
can play with the big boys.
can play with the big boys.
The improving Mustangs are 2-0,
having beaten Texas Christian and
Florida, and for the second week in a
row Penn State is faced with the task of
stopping a hotshot passer.
This time, it's SMU's Mike Ford, who
has completed 29 of 48 for 490 yards and
four touchdowns but who also is well
aware that the Nittany Lions intercep-
ted Ohio State's Art Schlichter five
times a week ago.
