Athletics' Pilot May Surprise By

When the 1931 world series gets
under way Thursday afternoon at
St. Louis, two questions are likely
to stand out as having a distinct
bearing on the outcome of the bat-
tle for the supremacy of the base-:
ball world.

GRIO FNS TO SEE
SCOREBOARD WOR ,K
Huge Amplifying Unit to Give.
Details of Game To Crowd
as New Feature.
Michigan football fans who go
out to the stadium to see ther Wol-
verine team in action this season
will see, for the first time, the mam-
moth new scoreboards put to use.
At the same time they will hear the
game described for them instan-
taneously over a huge amplifying
system that has been installed in
the stadium during the summer.
The new scoreboards were not
ready for use last season, although
an attempt was made to put them
into operation for the final game of
the season with Chicago. They are
entirely comipleted now, however,
and will be used throughout the
entire current season.
The boards are among the most
complete ever erected. They show,
entirely in electric lights, the score,
the team possessing the ball, yards
to go, number of downs, time left
to play, number of man carrying
the ball, and number of every sub-
stitute entering the game.
By means of the amplifying sys-
tem rooters will be told the man
carrying the ball, scores of other
games, reasons for penalties, extent
of injuries received by players, and
any other important sidelights that
will add to the enjoyment of the
game for the fans.
Southern Methodist has reduced
football admission prices. One dol-
lar will admit fans to conference
games.

Waite Hoyt
HOYT CALLS OUT
VARSITY HARRIERS
Will Meet Detroit Y Team Here
Oct. 17; Wolfe is Captain.
Cross country competition, the
fall sport which gives the thinclad
distance runners their seasonal
workout, will get under way here
Oct. 17 when the Varsity .harriers.
will meet the Detroit Y team.
Coach Charles Hoyt has issued a
call for men, but several of the
'veterans from last year have been
working out during the past week
under Capt. Harmon Wolfe. Howell,
Hill, Fitzgibbons, and Crawford are
the veterans about {whom Coach
Hoyt must mould his squad. In the
past, lack of relief runners has seri-
ously hampered the team's chances
of victory and Hoyt is anxious to
get a large squad of runners out on
the three-mile course.
McManus and Ostrander are com-
ing up from the frosh team of last
year and will be a welcome addi-
tion to the Varsity squad.. Braden
will also get an opportunity to bid
for a berth on the team.
Freshman harriers are also ask-
ed to report to Coach Ken Doherty
any afternoon this week and prac-
tice will begin immediately.

Freshman football uniforms will
be issued this afternoon at 3:30 in
Yost Field House according to an
announcement by freshman coach
Ray Fisher, thus giving first year
pig skin enthusiasts their first op-'
porturlity to bid for future berths
on the Varsity eleven. Practice will
begin immediately over on the
south end of Ferry Field.
This week's drill will be devoted
to setting up exercises to get the
newcomers in shape, but soon the
yearlings will have to bear the
tough assignment of carrying out
opponent's plays against the Var-
sity in a series of scrimmages. Sev-
eral outstanding high school stars
are on the Campus this year and
should aid in developing a strong
frosh squad.
The big game of the year will be
the annual finale, a rough and
tumble melee with the physical eds
for the Campus honors. Candidates
will be divided up into a number of
squads later in the season and in-
ter-squad scrimmages will color the
routine practices. It is from the
freshman material that the winner
of the Chicago Alumni trophy is
picked during spring practice.

be working to full advantage.
There is only one big question fac-
ing the, St. Louis fans, and that
concerns the work of one "Sunny
Jim" Bottomley.
Bottomley Falters
Last season Bottomley was one
of the National League's star play-
ers. He was the big gun of the
Cardinals' attack before the series
began, and then, when he faced-the
slants of the Mackmen's mound
artists, he ceased hitting and. be-
came the bust of the 1930 series.
This season he was kept out of
the game while a newcomer, Col-
lins, played first base. - Collins was
a sensation during the early part
of the year and seemedeto have
crowded Bottomley definitely out of
the spbtlight. Midway through the
season, however, the newcomer was
injured, and once more Bottomley
went to first base, where he has,
remained ever since. 'At present he
