BRIGGS STADIUM, Detroit, Oct.,
5.-(A)-The courageous Cincinnati
Reds coursed back onto even terms
in the 1940 World Series today by
muzzling the Detroit Tigers, 5 to 2, on
the five-hit pitching of big Paul
The Reds raided three Detroit pit-
chers for 11 hits and were always on
the attack, to the amazement of a
crowd of 54,093 who turned out for
the fourth fracas of the annual au-
tumn classic.
They kept up a more or less con-
stant shower of hits, but the import-
ant contribution to the conquest was
the strong-arm hurling of Derringer.
It was the fifth time the 33-year-
old Kentuckian had started in a
World Series, once when he was
breaking in for the St. Louis Cardin-
als and four times with the Reds, and
this was his first victory.
He went into today'stussie as a
bit of surprise strategy on the part
of Manager Bill McKechnie and de-
termined to stifle the Tiger sluggers.
He did it with the same stout-heart-
ed elbowing that he has used to pull
the National League champions out
of many another tight hole.
He was wild at the start, but the
longer he pitched the tougher he be-
came, giving no hits and no walks
after the sixth inning.
The Reds, in the meantime, had
pounced on Paul (Dizzy) Trout for
two runs in the first inning and
shelled him off the mound before he
got anybody out in the third.
As usual the bell cow of the Cin-
cinnati club was Bill Werber, who
went to the plate five times and got

Power Defeats State

As Harmon Takes Lead In Attack



Michigan's bundle of gridiron dynamite exploded in the Stadium
Before a crowd of 65,438, the indomitable Wolverines, with All-Amer-
ican Tom Harmon playing the leading role, overpowered a Michigan State
squad that refused to say die, 21-14.
The score hardly tells the story though of yesterday's sun-warmed
battle. Fritz Cfisler's charges, in rolling up their third straight victory over
the men from Sparta and their 26th in the 35-year history of the gridiron
classic, completely out-charged, out-tackled and out-ran their foes from
beginning to end.
All in all, they marched to 19 first downs while State garnered but
five. From scrimmage they gained 312 yards to 49 for the Spartans. The
whole affair would have been a complete rout if it were not for one danger-
ous flaw in the Wolverine attack-an old enemy that returned to plague
the Crisler squad once again-a faulty pass defense.
For it was through the air that Charley Bachman's outfit made its bid
for victory. After an attack on land had failed to dent the powerful Wol-
verine line, the victory-hungry Spartans unleashed a potent aerial offense,
and it was there they uncovered the<--

Prof. Pollock Urges Americans
To Emphasize National Defense

Painting a dismal picture of what
would happen to the United States if
Germany defeated England, Prof.
James K. Pollock of the political sci-
ence department urged more than 150
persons attending an American Soci-
ety for Metals dinner at the League
last night to "make national defense
our major affair and relegate all of
our personal matters to a secondary
"The world must stop the Reich
by acting," he declared, "and not by
sitting down and claiming that the
Nazis can't hurt us. The Germans
are the best administrators in the
world and we must realize that they
are not growing weaker and becom-
ing more disorganized as they acquire
new territories."
Professor Pollock continued by
pointing out several examples of Hit-
ler's plans which were laughed at
in the past and showed how his ideas
of getting "living space" for Ger-
mans and getting economic control
of the world would upset our whole
standard of living.
In Germany, he pointed out, there
is an group known as the Institute
of Terror whose activity is devoted
to finding out both how to produce
and how to control chaos. "Work
of this type," he asserted, "resulted

if not the major, causes of their de-
"We are already at war because of
our policy of giving aid to Britain,"
Professor Pollock commented, "and
further participation may be expect-
ed." He then explained to his audi-
ence that he was not trying to get
this country into the conflict but re-
minded them that going to war as
"soon as it was convenient" would
do little to change our policy.
"Students are definitely not plot-
ters of revolution or anything of that
kind," he declared, "but are just like
the rest of us in believing in the
freedom brought to them in our dem-

Warning To Axis Powers
By Secretary Of Navy
Says We Will Be Ready
WASHINGTON, Oct. 5.'-(P)-
Secretary Knox ordered 27,591 Navy
and Marine reservists into uniform
today after pointedly warning the
Rome-Berlin-Tokyo axis that "if a
fight is forced upon us we shall be
The order applied to the entire
organized and fleet reserves of the
Navy and Marine Corps. It will swell
to 239,281 the number ofd officers and
men on' active duty, giving the sea-
going forces a strength in personnel
they have not possessed since the
post-World War period.
Shortly before he issued his order,
the Naval Secretary saidrunequivo-
cally in an address to graduates of
the National Police Academy that
the Japanese-German-Italian alli-
ance "is directed at us," and that the
United States would not be "inti-
midated." His remarks were widely
interpreted as an administration re-
ply to yesterday's assertion by
Prince Konoye, the Japanese Pre-
mier, that any challenge of the
Rome-Berlin-Tokyo axis would tum-

in the coming week--was based on
reports that all was ready for Adolf
Hitler's command at the "invasion

Belief the Italians are ready to
start a major offensive toward Alex-
andria and the Suez was based on
reports from Italy of German troops,
engineers and specialists passing
through the Brenner Pass on the
way to the Italian base at Libya.
It was believed possible also that
Spain, despite assertiorn of her con-
tinuing non-belligerency, might try
to grab Gibraltar with the help of
Italy by sea and air and Germany
by land.
Berlin and Rome, although hint-
ing at an impending knockout swing,
still made a mystery of Axis plans.
Nazi informants spoke of a blow at
an especially "vulnerable spot"--un-
named-while talk in Berlin centered
on the eastern Mediterranean as a
potential decisive battleground.
Fascist editorial guns turned on
Turkey as a satellite of Britain and
the United States, but Virginio Gay-
da, Italy's most authoritative edi-
torial voice, contented himself with
the declaration that "the two Axis
powers are resuming their war oper-
ations . . . The effect will be seen
Whatever "surprises" the Axis may
plan, British military sources looked
toward the winter, they said, with
"reasonable confidence" as the Nazi
air siege of London went into its
fifth week.
