Cincinnati Reds Square Series
With 5-3Victory Over Tigers;
Walters Pitches Three Hitter


(Continued from Page 1)
mighty bats were muffled"to virtual
silence and except for three hits,
only seven balls went to the out-
Attack Was Widespread
The Reds' onslaught against Rowe
by contrast was widespread with eve-
ry Cincinnati batter except Mike Mc-
Cormick getting one blow. Wilson
got the only hit off Gorsica and it
could have ,been scored as an error
,as well as not, because Higgins sim-
ply couldn't handle it on his left.
The second stanza- teeing-off
against Schoolboy was started by
Frank (Buck) McCormick, who
slashed the first pitch along the
ground like a billiard ball into left
field. Ripple popped up, but Wilson,
Eddie Joost and Billy Myers hit con-
secutive singles to all three fields for
two runs.
This blast might have been big-
ger, because Catcher Birdie Tebbetts
tried to catch Joost off second and
threw the ball through Bartell and
into center field to send the runners
to third and second. But Walters
flied out and after Werber walked,
M. McCormick popped up with the
bases loaded.
Goodman Beats Bunt
Goodman led off the third inning
by beating out a drag bunt toward
first and, after McCosky had pulled
in F. McCormick's hot liner, Ripple
poundedthe first pitch over the wire
fence in front of the right field
bleachers, 370 feet from the plate.
The next two outs came easily, but
Rowe was obviously in for a bad af-

ternoon. Myers hit the first pitch in
the fourth and Bruce Campbell had
to make a nice running catch to pull
it in. Then Walters needled a double
along the third base foul line and
Werber knocked a liner in the same
direction and good for the same dis-
tance when it bounced off the fence
around some temporary seats within
a yard of the foul line in the left
field corner.
Gorsica Stops Reds
What happened after Gorsica
came in didn't make any difference.
The Reds were stopped short, cut off
without another show, but they had,
won the ball game and tied up the
Series at a game apiece.
The two teams left almost imme-
diately after the game for Detroit,
where the Series will be continued
tomorrow in Briggs Stadium.
Manager Del Baker of the Tigers
expected to follow his well-formed
plan of starting curve-baller Tommy
Bridges in the first tussle on the
homeblot, but Bill McKechnie was
torn between Gene Thompson and
the veteran Jim Turner.
Although Thompson has been Cin-
cinnati's regular No. 3 hurler all sea-
son, some persons close to the club
thought Turner's experience and
control would be more effective, par-
ticularly in strange surroundings.

Jack Amon, State's first string

Call's Chances
To See Action
Look Brighter
After a final light gridiron drill
this afternoon, Michigan's Varsityt
football squad will leave classroom
worries, pep rallies and the like be-
hind it, retiring to an outlying coun-
try club in order to gain quiet and
complete rest on the eve of tomor-
row's clash with Michigan State. i
The injury situation seemed to be
clearing up yesterday with the an-
nouncement by Trainer Ray Roberts
that Norm Call, regular wingback
who incurred an ankle bruise in the
California tilt, will be sure to see1
service against the Spartans.
Kresja Or Nelson To Start
It is doubtful, however, that Coach
Fritz Crisler will insert the speedy
junior into the starting lineup. Mich-
igan's mentor announced yesterday
that either sophomore Bob Kresja
or junior Davie Nelson would prob-
ably win the nod for the berth.
Otherwise, the team that lined up
against the Bears last week will take
the field tomorrow intact. This
means Ed Frutig and Joe Rogers will
start at the ends, Al Wistert and
Reuben Kelto at tackle, Milo Sukup
and Ralph Fritz at guard, and big
Bob Ingalls at the pivot position.
Capt. Forest Evashevski, Tom Har-
mon and Bob Westfall comprise the
rest of the backfield.
State Loaded For Wolverine
Meanwhile, all reports emanating
from East Lansing assumed an om-
inous tone. Indications are that
Charlie Bachman's powerful Spar-
tan outfit is ready to shoot every-
thing at its favored rival. For months
on end the topic uppermost in their
minds has been that of humbling
All-American Harmon and his mates.
With the exception of versatile
Wyman Davis, regular Spartan half-
back, Bachman's squad is in super-
lative condition. Davis sustained a
bruised hip in scrimmage, but he is
expected to start tomorrow in spite
of the injury.
For the third successive day yes-
terday, Crisler showed his gridmen
State plays as run off by a red-
shirted third string outfit. The
Wolverines also drilled intensively
on their aerial attack, which showed
some improvement, and Harmon
sharpened up on the punting duties
which he is expected to take over

That World Series ...
Baseball's most spectacular showI
moves onto our doorstep today.
In a wee little town just outside
Ann Arbor, the World Series of 1940,
featuring Cincinnati's red-hot Reds
and Detroit's surprising Tigers, opens
its third act.
It is with a sincere feeling of joy
and a heartfelt sigh of relief that
we look toward Detroit this after-
noon. The joy and relief comes from
the fact that this year's spectacle
will be a Yankeeless affair. There
will be no place for the DiMaggios,
the Gordons and the Ruffings in
Briggs Stadium tomorrow unless they
purchase seats.
Ah, and that's a good feeling, boys
and girls. It was not so long ago that
we threw in the white towel and
called for help. There were too many
resources behind the men of Ruppert,
we thought. Someone must step in
and break them up. If this goes on,
why curses, the game will go to ruin.
Yes, it wasn't so long ago that we
thought all that, and today we can
'est in peace. The Yanks, aided by
Old Man Time, have broken them-
By whipping the Indians, more-
over, the Tigers paid a great service
to the coaching and managing pro-
fession. I remember reading in the
San Francisco papers just last week-
end how the coaches throughout the
country were faced with a serious
problem. Their futures were at stake,
it was believed.
An Analogous Set-up
The whole thing hinged around
the San Francisco-Stanford game,
the second half of that troublesome
double-bill they held 'Frisco way. It
seemed that George Malley, coach of
the San Francisco eleven had fired
all his assistants except one. If the
Dons could beat Stanford, with a
set-up like that, well then, why would
any other school need more than
one coach?
Stanford won, and how. And in
the same way, our Tigers whipped
a leaderless Cleveland Indians nine.
The coaches now have proof that
they are the "indispensable men."
Dots And Dashes
Got a letter from former sports
ed Bud Benjamin yesterday . . .He's
still performing for NEA service . . .
Warns us that Ohio sounds plenty
tough ... Bud in turn tells me of a
letter he got from ex-sport ed Pete
Lisagor : . . Pete, now with Chicago
Daily News, reports that the back
of his neck sunburned from covering
golf matches this summer . . . Says

Wyman Davis, versatile Spartan
halfback, who may not start to-
morrow. Davis has a bruised hip.
that Ed Kirar, former Wolverine
swimmer, is a subway engineer in
Chi . . . that Earl Thomas, the ex-
wrestling champ, holds a seat on the
grain exchange there . . . that Vic
Heyliger, Michigan's hockey star a
few years back, has a powerhouse
a'brewin' in Champaign where he
now coaches . . . That must be the
result of that frosh squad he was
raving about last winter . . . He
claimed they could beat the Minne-
sota varsity without any trouble.

Amidst repeated choruses of "The
Victors" and "The Star-Spangled?
Banner," Wallie Weber and family
are again at the task of rounding out
another edition of the frosh football
Ninety candidates reported Mon-
day, and the word from South Ferry
Field is that they are big and rangy.
Coaches Weber, Keen, Fisher, and
Courtright report that it's still too
early to make commitments on pos-
sibilities for the future. But if one
can judge from past reputations, the
outlook for the future is anything
but dim.
Most prominent among the back-
field prospects are: John Green and
Don Boor from Kiski, John Allerdice
from Indianapolis, Walt Derby from
Freemont, Mich., and Mervin Pre-
gulman from Lansing.
Allerdice is the brother of the fa-
mous Dave Allerdice who was an
outstanding back on the Princeton
University eleven for the past three
years. His father is also remembered
by many alumni as a great back on
Michigan teams of many seasons
ago. From appearances, the present
Allerdice should be heard from as a
fine runner, passer and kicker.
Green and Boor are from the same
school as are Paul Kromer and Ralph
Fritz who are performers on the 1940
Wolverine eleven.
Derby is a big fullback, scaling
well over 190 pounds. Despite his
size, Derby was an outstandingttrack
man in state competition last year.
He won the sprint and the shot-put
titles in the all-state meet. From
other sources, it is reputed that nine-
teen colleges and universities sought
Derby. This is easily understood

Harmon Is Chosen
'Man of The Week'
On Radio Program
It wasn't very hard for Red Grange
to pick out his "football's man of
the week" for this week's national
Tom Harmon's four touchdowns
against California were more than
enough to make him the nation's
outstanding gridder in last Satur-
day's games, and Grange will honor
him as such in his broadcast to-
night over CKLW at 7:15.
Each week Grange broadcasts a
summary of sporting world news and
the programs are featured with his
choice of "football's man of the
week." Two dozen roses are sent by
Illinois' former "man of the season'
to the sweetheart or mother of his
weekly choice.
At Harmon's request two dozer
roses will be delivered to his mother
Mrs. L. A. Harmon, of 705 West 35th
St., Gary, Indiana.

OffensiveTreat Ninety Strong Report To Weber
As Frosh Grid Practice Starts


when one glances at his past record.
The line prospects seem even bet-
ter with tremendous Pregulman
leading the list of centers. This "boy"
carries 215 pounds on his six-foot,
three-inch frame. Mervin was cap-
tain and center on the Michigan
all-state high school football team.
He was one of the most feared and
respected players in the entire state.
Opposing players and coaches claim
that he made seventy percent of his
team's tackles. This Lansing product
is also a fine basketball player.
In addition to these fine freshmen,
Terry Flynn, who was an outstand-
ing end on last year's frosh team,
has again returned to play.
With all of these players working
daily on the turf at Ferry Field the
outlook seems optimistic to say the
least. But we shall let time make its
own record.

Same amount of electricity-
For the same amount of electricity, you can get
fluorescent tube lights in your factory, store or
office. But a word of caution is advisable:
Fluorescent lighting is so new and there are so
many fixtures on the market, so many claims be-
ing made, that it is hard for the inexperienced .
buyer to know what to buy. At present fluorescent
fixtures are more expensive than other types, and
special auxiliary equipment is needed to operate
them, so that getting your money's worth is espe-
cially important.
One way you can be SURE of getting proper
fixtures is to insist on certified Fleur-O-Liers.
This is not a fixture made by any one manufac-
turer: It is the brand name used by over 17 corn-
panies on fixtures built to rigid specifications for
your protection ... specifications carefully drawn
up by Mazda Lamp manufacturers and checked
by Electrical Testing Laboratories. Look for the
label-the mark of certified Fleur-O-Liers. It
is your assurance of quality "and dependability.
Corresponding fixtures for industrial use are iden-
tified by the name "R. L. M. Fluorescent."
Our experienced lighting staff will be glad to give
you full information about this revolutionary new
lighting. Call your Detroit Edison office. There is
no charge or obligation. The Detroit Edison Com-
pany does not sell Fleur-O-Lier fixtures or fluo-
rescent lamps. See your electrical contractor or
