World Series Opens At Polo Grounds
Battle In Annual
Betting Odds Almost Even
As Developments Favor

Hubbell To Start

Earl Whitehill Favored
New York is teeming with baseball
fans today as followers of the two
major league champions, the New
York Giants and Washington Sen-
ators, impatiently await the start of
the world series opener at the Polo
Grounds this afternoon. The game
will be called at 1:30 p. m.
Both teams engaged in a short
"fire drill" yesterday afternoon to
polish off a season's preparation.'l
They are spending this morning in1
their respective hotels.
Surprising developments have oc-
curred in betting odds. An overnight
flood of New York money has placed
betting on almost an even basis, in
place of the 10 to 7 advantage given
the Senators earlier. In general, bet-
ting has favored the Giants for the
first game, and the Senators for the
The shift in betting odds failed to
perturb Joe Cronin, youthful man-
ager of the Washington club. Cronin
believes implicitly in the ability of
his well-rounded team to take the
Giants, not in four games Vs the New
York Yankees made a habit of, per-
haps, but comfortably.
As for Bill Terry, who led the
Giants to a smashing and unexpect-
ed National league pennant triumph
in his first full year as John Mc-
Graw's successor, he's conceding the
American leaguers not a single thing
so long as Carl Hubbell's left arm is
in serviceable condition.
,He said a week ago that Hubbell
would pitch the first game and noth-
ing has occurred since then to make
him change his mind. The great
southpaw pitched ten 'shptouts in
winning 23 games this season and
Terry thinks the Senators will find
him just as much a puzzle as did the
National league teams.
As to the starting pitcher for
Washington, speculation is rife, and
nothing definite is known. Cronin
himself insists he hasn't got the
slightest idea whether he'll nominate
"General" Alvin Crowder, his crack
right hander, or one of his left
handers, Earl Whitehill or Wally
Earl Whitehill, f o r m e r Tiger
moundsman, seems to be Cronin's
best bet, with Crowder, Stewart and
Weaver following in that order.
" The first two games will be played
today and tomorrow in New. York.
The scene will then shift to Wash-
ington where games will be played
Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The
final two games, if necessary, will be
held at the Polo Grounds.

Carl Hubbell, ace of the New York
Giant pitching staff, has been se-
lected by Manager Bill Terry to hurl'
the opener today. Critics feel that Joe
Cronin will select either Whitehill or
Crowder to oppose him.
Scores for the qualifying rounds
of the women's archery and golf
tournaments may be turned in to
the Women's Athletic Building as
late as Friday afternoon. The post-
ponement of the deadline was caused
because of rushing, and the conse-
quent delay in play-offs.
Handicaps for the archery contest
will be decided by scores turned in
on 24 arrows shot at a distance of
30 yards. The Columbia round di-
vision will provide the competition
for the advanced archers, and the
Handicap division. will be arranged
for the low scorers.
Women who wish to enter the golf
championship race must turn in a
qualifying score on the first nine
holes of the University golf course.
Tennis competition will be speeded'
up. First round matches are to be
completed by Friday afternoon, and
if possible, second round play-offs
should be completed by Monday.
The open hockey sessions this
afternoon and Thursday are for the
benefit of players who have had pre-
vious experience, and would like to
House athletic managers will meet
at the Women's Field House Wednes-
day afternoon at 4:30 to complete

card, will be the team sports for the

For State Game
Shakeup Looms As Coach'
Sends Regular Linemen
And Back To Reserves
A definite shakeup loomed for the
Varsity football squad yesterday aft-
ernoon as Coach Kipke drove his
charges through the firstdpractice
session of the week.
Not at all satisfied with the show-
ing of the first-stringers in the
scrimmage on Saturday, especially
the line, Kipke sent three of his
starting linemen and one back to the
second string eleven in an effort toj
improve both defense and offense be-
fore the State game this Saturday.
Kowalik and Savage; first string
guards, were replaced by Borgman
and Hildebrand; A u st i n, regular
tackle, was sent to the second team
as John Viergiver, sophomore tackle,
took his position in the line; and
Capt. Stan Fay, who started at quar-
ter in Saturday's scrimmage, was re-
placed by Bill Renner.
The first team lined up with Ward
and Petoskey at the ends; Wistert
and Viergiver, tackles; Borgmann and
Hildebrand, guards; Bernard, center;
Renner,. quarter; Heston and Ever-
hardus, halfs; and Regeczi, fullback.
The defense eleven had Shea and
Johnson at the ends; Austin and
McGuire, tackles; Kowalik and Sav-
age, guards; Fuog, center; Tessmer,
quarter; Triplehorn and J a c o b s,
halves; and Oliver, fullback.
Get New Plays
The offensive team were given a
set of running and, passing plays
by Kipke and, although there was no
scrimmage, the Michigan mentor
drove them through a stiff drill on
the plays. Renner and Regeczi did
most of the passing with Renner
showing much the better with his
Fay, Schmidt and Westover alter-
nated with the starting backfield in
running through the signal drill. An
intensive blocking drill for linemen
and backs featured the first part of
the session with Fay and Heston
showing well among the backs.

N OT MUCH comfort accrues to the
coaches of the larger outfits of
the nation whose teams had contests
with small institutions last Saturday.
At least we gather that the - large
majority are not exactly licking their
chops with great satisfaction. In
fact, if we were coaching one of the
larger principals in Saturday's near-
upsets on the gridiron, we would
have a great deal of uncomplimen-
tary things to say about first-string
players in general, and the likelihood
that a few salaries would be cut.
Take Pitt for instance. The Pan-
thers may be considered very very
lucky indeed to win from the Presi-
dents of Washington and Jefferson.
Now W&J turns out some excellent
teams but after all, Pitt, played in
the Rose Bowl last January, and
such outfits are usually considered
to be more or less hot stuff. They
failed to score until the last five min-
utes of play in Saturday's game and
we may take it that the cloud said
to be hanging perpetually over Pitts-
burgh will be augmented today by
the blue smoke of profanity.
There will be a weeping and wail-
ing t o g e t h e r with considerable
gnashing of teeth over in Evanston.
Some of the stuffing came out of the
Wildcat, and there will be merry
Sheol to pay for the next week. Iowa
was simply underrated and the same
sports writer who did not give Mich-
igan a chance to win the Big Ten
title this year said of Northwestern

threat of the Conference. Ann Ar-
bor papers please copy." We have
copied, thank you sir!
Our consensus was not so bad, but
not so good, either. We are not go-
ing to boast about it any. The junior
staff picked eighteen out of twenty
right, and one of the boys, Don Bird,
had nineteen out of twenty spotted.
He slipped up on the Tulane-Texas
A (P) M game, picking Tulane as did
the rest of the staff but one. Don's
