Oct. 4.-()-The dynamite in the
bats of the Detroit Tigers exploded
again today with two reverberating
home runs and a total of 13 hits to
blast the Cincinnati Reds, 7 to 4,
and give the American League
champions a two games to one ad-
vantage in the 1940 World Series.
The explosion, amounting to six
hits and four runs in the seventh
inning, shattered what had been a
peaceful pitching performance by
two Tennessee curveballers, Tommy
Bridges and Jim Turner, and sent
the 52,877 enthusiastic Detroit fans
into such ecstasy the game had to be
halted several times to clean up the
paper and other debris they showered
on the outfield. e
Tiger Bats Speak
The hits just started popping like
a package of Chinese firecrackers-
a single by Hank Greenberg, a home
run byRudy York, a single by Bruce
Campbell, another homer by Pinky
Higgins. Nobody was on and nobody
was out when Turner gave up to the
Whitey Moore succeeded in setting
down the next two batters, but he,
too, gave up a single to Dick Bartell
and a double to Barney McCosky
and was in desperate straits when
Charley Gehringer finally raised a
pop foul to end the shooting.
The contest as a whole was a cur-
ious mixture of really great pitching,
and equally emphatic hitting.
Turner Seemed Strong
For a time it seemed that Turner,
a seasoned right-hander who won 12
and lost 9 in the National League
this year, was going to get the best
of the long-hitting cannonaders
from the junior circuit.
The Reds gave him a runbin the
first inning when Bill Werber hit
the first pitch for two bases and,
poison Ival Goodman singled him
Turner faced only ten men in the
first three innings, struck out three
and once pitched seven successive
strikes. He had 'the Tigers' right-
handed powerdshort circuited ap-
parently hopelessly, although he was
having some trouble with the port-
Lefthanders Get Hits
The only hit he gave up in the
first three innings was a double by
the left-handed hitting Campbell af-
ter he had fanned Greenberg and
York in succession in the second.
Then in the fourth Detroit tied
up the score when McCosky and
Gehringer, both left-handed batters,
led off with singles and McCosky
reached home as Greenberg hit into
a double play. York hit a wasted sin-
gle but the Tigers were routed one
after another after that until the
big blow-up in the seventh.
During all this time after the faul-

Lettermen and holders of class nu-

Klamach was dazed, but recovered
in time to pursue his attacker, who

Bill Combs, '41, M-Club president

rallies sponsored by the Club. "We
are not willing to assume responsi-
bility for'the actions of a group of
students who show utterly no coop-
eration," he said early this morning.
The rioting began in front of the
Michigan Theatre on Liberty Street,
where a crowd gathered, preparing to
"crash the gate." Cries of "free beer"
drew the crowd to Main Street, where
traffic was held up for more than
four blocks in all directions while
the students sang Michigan songs

traffic through the jammed streets.
Fires were started in the middle of

Michigan Has
Edge In Weight
A path to gridiron greatness clear-
ly envisioned before it, a powerful
crew of stalwart Spartans from
Michigan State will explode all its
football fury against Fritz Crisler's
favored Wolverines before 60,000
fans at 2 p.m. today in the Stadium.
Straining under a two-year dom-
ination by the Maize and Blue grid-
men, Coach Charlie Bachman's rug-
ged men from Sparta, accompanied
by an entourage of 17,000 rabid Spar-
tan rooters, are -prepared and ax-
ious to throw every ounce of energy,
every bit of gridiron trickery, every
crafty maneuver at their disposal
into the annual tradition-steeped
eGrat Wolverine Team
For Crisler, in his third year as
Michigan's mentor, has assembled
what may turn out to be one of the
greatest gridiron machines in Maize
and Blue history. In its only test of
the embryonic 1940 season, the Wol-
verine juggernaut rolled with ease
last week over California's Golden
Bears, 41-0, to hand the West Coast
outfit its worst beating in a decade
Possessing a backfield rated as one
of the most powerful in the entire
nation, Michigan's vaunted offensive
strength which amassed 33 first
downs against the Bears will be
hard for any team to shackle-even
the Spartans who boast line strength
reported to be at least equal to that
of the Wolverines' regular forward
wall with reserve power three deep
in every position.
State Line Powerful
It is on this puissant line power
that the invaders are pinning most
of their victory hopes. For their
backfield, while a good capable quar-
tet of gridmen, cannot match Mich-
igan's standout performers, Capt.
Forest Evashevski, All-American Tom
Harmon, bullet Bob Westfall, bruis-
ing sophomore Bob Kresja, speedy
Norm Call, et al.
Most of the Spartan's offensive
punch is expected to be generated by
pass-tossing Wyman Davis, 178-
pound junior halfback. Rated as one
of the best hurlers in the Middle
West, this lanky six-footer's tosses
will be a constant threat tq Crisler's
Davis Emulates Pingel
As a running back, Davis is slightly
reminiscent of State's Johnny Pin-
gel, who won All-Americans honors
two years ago. He fits in well with
the Spartans' Notre Dame box for-
mations, relishing the wide end
sweeps, reverses, and half-spinners
typical of the wily Bachman-piloted
At fullback three Grand Rapids
huskies, Jack Amon, Roman Kaman
and Pete Ripmaster, will likely see
action for the invaders with Amon,
a fast, hard-driving 170-pounder,
named to start.
Sherman Is Quarterback
Junior Bob Sherman seems to have
the inside track for the Spartan
quarterbark berth with Wil Davis,
Wyman's twin brother, in reserve.
Right halfback is still a tossup
with Walt Ball, a sophomore punting
star, and diminutive Walt Pawloski,
157-pound junior, both liable to get
the starting nod. Ball is favored,
however, because of his superlative

Grand Old Man' Urges Students
To Build Morale For Victory


It was the "Grand Old Man" him-
self who summed it all up last nigiht
in his address to the Ferry Field pep1
rally when he said, "One can't put
Michigan spirit on like a coat." 1
The spirit of former years wasn'ti
there as 4,000 Wolverines marched
down to the Field House to hear
Fielding H. Yost, Fritz Crisler, Louis
Elbel and others tell them of Mich-
igan's glories and future.I
They made master of ceremonies
Charles Heinen, '41, roll 'em up and
had a hearty laugh when Don Wirt-
chafter, '41, Daily sport editor, re-i
vealed his flannel underwear as he
rolled up his pants in response to
their demands. But the first and last1
time they really let loose at the rally
came when Yost got up on the speak-
ers' platform. The crow arose and
gave him a tremendous ovation that
made his voice choke as he began to

composer of the "Victors," then of-
fered a tribute to Yost, announcing,
the release of his new song, "Mich-
igan Spirit," dedicated to Coach Yost
at the Yost testimonial banquet on
Oct. 19.
The demonstration in the Field
House closed and the crowd filed
down to the ,bon-fire at South Ferry
Field after several cheer leaders kid-
napped a number of the audience
and transported them to the speak-
ers' stand. One was Henry Stevens,
Grad., who spent his undergraduate
days at Michigan State. Under the
pressure of the crowd which had
milled out on the floor to surround
him Stevens courageously stated he
was sure Michigan was going to lick

bon-fire gathering, expressing the
team's thanks for the expression of
loyalty shown by the crowd and
