The Orioles, taking charge in a
manner reminiscent of last year's
World Series triumph over a
mauled Cincinnati staff, thus
built their lead to 2-0 over the
Pirates in the best-pf-seven series
as the teams headed for Pitts-

Oddly, for the power-hitting
Orioles, every one of their hits
was a singl'. But they were
bunched enough to produce
three runs in the fourth inning
and six in the fifth .inning as a
total of 19 men went to the plate.;
"Those singles hurt my ears,"
said Pittsburgh relief pitcher Bob
Moose. "I can't believe it."
"I'm not embarrassed," Moose
said. "I think they should be em-



barrassed, though. Where's all
that power they're supposed to
have 'Fourteen singles"',
The Orioles got five of them off
Moose and five runs in the one
inning he pitched.'
"Three in a row were scratch
hits," said Moose. "I had good
stuff, I thought. But doesn't mat-
ter when they hit you that way.
"I'd rather get hit hard and
lost than lose like that."
The assault on six Pittsburgh
pitchers brought the victory for

The Michigan Daily edit staff is no more. They were annihilated,
embalmed and buried last Sunday afternoon by an aroused sports
staff, bent on the destruction of obxnoxious campus personalities. The
front page of today's Daily was produced by a wandering band of
Belgian gypsies who are currently occupying the premises at 420
Proud possessors of college football's longest unbeaten streak,
the sports. staff Libels boldly decided to open their eighty-first unde-
feated, untied and unscored upon season with the toughest opponents
available. Since Radical Lesbians refused to participate in a chau-
vinist activity the Libels were forced to pick the most expendable
bodies in town and instantly selected their editorial associates.
Knowing that newswriters would never survive the first series of
downs against the Libel first string, the squad mercifully decided to
appear for the game well hung over.
But nothing could stop the mighty Libel machine as quarterback
Oilcan Olin led them out of the huddle. On the first play from scrim-
mage Olin hit Gorilla Greer coming up from his center position. Two
plays later Randy Phallanges grabbed a bullet in the end zone and
the rout was on.
The game, however, was not entirely without pain for the Libels

forehead from Chicago Bull Epstein as he unwisely stepped into
the Bull's path.

three-run homer in the eighth,
and needed Dick Hall's relief help
in the ninth.
Brooks and Frank Robinson
collected three hits each, Brooks
driving in three and Frank scor-
ing two. Every Baltimore start-
er except Don Duford, Mark Be-
langer and Palmer contributed to
the attack.
The Orioles appeared virtually
invincible after having run their
winning streak to 16, including
11 regular season games, three
playoff victories and the two tri-
umphs over the Pirates.
While the Orioles were only
one shy of the Series' singles re-
cord, the Pirates tied the record
for most left on bases as Palmer
stranded 12 before he finally
was pulled by Manager Earl Wea-
ver after allowing seven hits
through the eight innings.
When he left he had thrown
168 pitches, gone to a full count
on eight batters, and struck out
10 while walking seven in a hot-
and-cold performance.
Before Manager Danny Mur-
taugh talked with reporters, he
gargled some mouthwash, then
"I don't want my breath to
smell too. Really, I chewed to-
bacco a little more than usual to-
"We're going back and re-
group," added Murtaugh. "We've
been in these kinds of situations
Murtaugh wouldn't say that re-
grouping meant trying to find
some way to get more effective-
ness from his bullpen, which gave
up seven runs Monday.
"They got into our long relief,
pitching and after that we could-
n't do anything right," he said.
"We didn't take advantage of
the opportunities we had in the
first few innings off Palmer.'
But mostly it was our problem of
not being able to get the ball
across the plate."
Hitting was just as much of a,
problem for the Pirates. Center-
fielder Al Oliver typified it by
batting four times with a total
of seven men on base-without,
getting a hit.
The only display of power hit-
ting by the Pirates came from
Richie Hebner, who rapped a
three-run homer, the first
homer off Oriole pitching in the
However, nothing mattered but
the Baltimore bats and they left
the Pirates in shaky shape as
they headed for Pittsburgh with
right-hander Steve Blass sched-
uled to go in Game No. 3 against
Orioles' left-hander Mike Cuellar.

Considering that the Michigan
football team won its first four
games by a collective score of
161-6, last Saturday's 24-13 win
should have been something of a
After all, it's enough of a disas-
ter when the stingy Wolverine de-
fense gives up one touchdown.
When the opposition crosses the
goal line twice, like they did last
week, it's time to reach for the
Maalox bottle.
The Michigan offense, which us-
ually takes a few games to get
rolling, has also looked better in
previous contests. Even Bo Schem-
bechler, one of the leading ex-:
ponents of the one point victory,
admitted disappointment, stating
that, "we should have been on the!
board a few more times."
But although the score was only
24-13, there*is no way that anyone
associated with the Michigan foot-
ball team is unhappy with the
outcome of the game. While he
wanted to see more points on the
board, Schembechler thought, "that
it was a great football game."
How come? Because anytime
Michigan beats Michigan State it's
a great victory. Besides, the score
wasn't really indicative of the ac-
tion on the field. It took them long-
er than usual to do it, but the
Wolverines dominated the game.
Except for a few long passes the
Spartans didn't have much success

BALTIMORE'S DAVE JOHNSON collides at home plate w i t h
Pirate catcher Manny Sanguillen in the fourth inning of yester-
days World Series game. Sanguillen halted the Oriole's hitting
attack by tagging Johnson out when he tried to score from
third on a fly ball to left. His play was not enough to save the
Pirates, though, as Baltimore won its second straight Series
game, 11-3.

moving the football while Mich-
igan moved it almost at will. It
was Wolverine mistakes that kept
the contest close, not the Michigan
State defenders.
The defensive secondary was the
main culprit. Instead of waiting for
the Spartans to turn the ball over,
the defenders went after it and un-
fortunately they didn't get it. An
interception helps the effort, but
a near interception hurts. In fact
it burns, and you could hear the
sizzle on Saturday.
According to Schembechler, "our
pass defense was a little, over-
eager, we overcommitted to get
Instead of interceptions they got
trouble as the Michigan gambles
paid off with two touchdowns for
Michigan State. If they read played
more conservatively the defense
might have earned its fourth
straight shutout. As Schembechler
commented, "we were leading so
they shouldn't have been that an-
xious to get the ball." But even
though the defense hurt the Wol-
verine cause with its miscues
Schembechler wasn't upset. "Ycu
have to remember that it's a team
game and this week the offense
came through," he commented.
The offensive line, especially,
did its job well. Reggie McKenzie
led the charge and was named of-
fensive player of the week. But he
barely beat out fellow blocker Jim
Coode, who also played a very
strong game. In fact, with a few
exceptions on individual plays
Schembechler said that, "we had
good performance all along the of-.
fensive line."
However the coaches decided
that McKenzie was the best. Hel
completed 85 per cent of his block-
ing assignmentsIand was especially'
effective on the end sweeps. Mich-
igan opened the game with four
carries by Bill Taylor and Mc-
Kenzie led the way on all of them.

Tom Slade, starting his first
game at quarterback, also drew
praise for his performance. "I
thought Slade was good," Schem-
bechler stated. Slade was given the
start because he is a better runner
than Kevin Casey and he amply
proved it with 48 yards. "Slade is
a good runner," commented Sch-
embechler. "Make no mistake, he
can run the football."
Slade had some problems pass-
ing though, as Spartan Ron Curl
blocked several of his attempts.
However it was the few mistakes
made by the offensive line that
caused the problem. "Our protec-
tion just broke down," explained
The line also broke down at the
end of the game when Glenn
Doughty was robbed of his first
touchdown of the season. Accord-
ing to Schembechler it was a miss-
ed assignment that prevented the
wingback from entering the end
zone on his two runs just before
the game ended.
Doughty has tasted running suc-
cess in the past, but this year it
seems to be eluding him. He has
had very few opportunities'to carry
the ball, only five against State,
and since the Wolverines have done
little passing he hasn't made many
receptions. In a way he had be-
come Michigan's secret weapon.
Schembechler knows what he can
do and has faith in him 'out, since
everyone else is doing so well,
hasn't had to use him. He knows
he's there though and constantly
reminds people that, "Someday
Doughty will be the big differ-
The only problem is that even
though the Michigan team makes
m i s t a k e s it avoids disaster.
Doughty is ready and waiting to
save the day but he may never
get the chance.

on the basis of the 48-27 trounc-
ing they handed formerly third
ranked Texas.
The Sooners received eight first-
place votes and 888 points in
climbing from eighth to second.
Nebraska, the defending nation-
al champions retained their hold
on the top spot receiving 40 first
place votes and 1,056 points fol-

Advent Corporation has used its
imagination, and by combining several
significant aspects of current technology,
has come up with just such a new
medium. What makes it all possible is
the new Advent Model 201 Stereo
Cassette Tape Deck, a record/playback
device that uses the standard cassette
format to achieve all those things we've
asked you to imagine. (1)
Cassettes have always had many of the
virtues we've described, but unfor-
tunately their AM-radio sound quality,
and their lightweight drive mechanisms
have limited their appeal. On the
other hand, open-reel recorders have
had the virtue of good sound, but also
have proven inconvenient enough to
intimidate many critical listeners, who
would rather not work quite so hard
to enjoy well-produced music.
The Advent Model 201 provides all the
performance and day-to-day consistency
of operation of good open-reel recorders,
at about the same price you'd expect
to pay for a really excellent one. (2)
Yet because it uses standard cassettes,
it provides a level of convenience and
portability (and pocketability) which
only the cassette medium can provide.
There is more to the story. Some of
the technological advances used in the

sound medium, with the best qualities
