but until the seventh frame old Bobo
actually had out-hurled his rival and
was well along to becoming the first
rian to acquire three world series
victories since Stanley Coveleskie did
it foi Cleveland in 1920.
Newsom struck out six batters and
his lone walk was intentional, to
Lombardi in the seventh. In the first
six frames Newsom allowed only four
hits, all in separate innings and faced
only 21 batters.
Wilson Hits Twice
The blows that he gave were a
single by Wilson with two out in the
second, a single by Wilson. to lead
off the fifth when he was quickly
erased in a double play, a single by
Myers to lead off the third and a
double by Mike McCormick with two
out in the sixth.
This last shot apparently was the
signal that Newsom was tiring. He
took the clinching assignment with'
one day's rest after shutting out the
Reds on three hits in Detroit Sunday.
Even so, he finished strong, strik-
ing out two of Cincinnati's top bat-
ters in the eighth and giving up only
one other hit, a drag bunt that Mike
McCormick beat out.
Bartell Not Alert
The first run against Newsom
might have been cut off by a little
more alertness on the part of Dick
Bartell. It looked for a moment like
Bruce Campbell might snare Ripple's
drive in the seventh and Frank Mc-
Cormick hovered near second until
he saw the ball fall safe. He was
only half way from third to the
plate when Bartell took the throw-

Frank McCormick, first baseman of the Cincinnati Reds, slid safely into third base i the sixth game
of the World Series Monday, but was left stranded there when the next two men up failed to get a hit. Mc-
Cormick was on first base when Jimmy Ripple singled and the speedy base-runner raced all the way to third
on the hit. Pinky Higgins is covering third base for Detroit. No. 1 is Bill McKechnie, manager of the Cin-
cinnati team. The Reds won the game, 4 to 0, due to the fine hurling of Bucky Walters, Cincinnati's ace
moundsman, to even the series at three games apiece. Then yesterday, behind the air-tight pitching of
game Paul Derringer, the Reds trounced the Tigers 2 to 1 to win the series and the world's championship.

Not that Coach Fritz Crisler and
his Wolverines were worrying in any
case, but Michigan's chances of de-
feating Harvard took on an even
rosier tinge, yesterday afternoon,
when it was learned that Don Mc-
Nicol, star Crimson halfback, would
probably be out of Saturday's game.
Reports For Practice
McNicol, according to reports from
Cambridge, injured his leg in Har-
vard's opening game with Amherst
last week. He reported for practice
Monday, but was immediately ordered
by team physicians to refrain from
scrimmaging. The Crimson ace was
further informed that he would be
unable to play against Michigan this
Capt. Joe Gardella, fullback, and
Charley Spreyer, reserve back, are be-

The Varsity coaching staff, how-
ever, suspicious of a "sleeper," an-
nounced that there would be no slack-
ening of the tempo at the week's re-
maining practice sessions. "We can't
afford to take any team too lightly,"
was Crisler's reply to the news from
the East.

his back to McCormick and was
watching Ripple slide into second.
Derringer struck out only one bat-

ally, but he pitched his own kind of

fine fielding by his teammates came
through flying.

Kolesar Knows Score...
This happened more than a week
ago, but we'll pass it on to you.
It was halftime in the California
game. Michigan was ahead, 21-0.
The Wolverines were gathered in the
locker room where Crisler was giving
them a bit of a pep talk.
"Boys," he yelled, "forget about
this score. Sure, we're ahead.
That's fine. But I want you to get
that out of your minds right now.
We're starting a new ball game.
Go out there and fight as if nei-
ther team had scored yet. Give
them all you got, boys. And what-
ever you do, forget about the
"Okay, coach," chanted the im-
pressed gridders.
Then Crisler went on.
"Remember what I said. This is
a scoreless tie. Are you going to give
it to them, boys?"
Back came a conglomeration of
affirmative sounding noises.
"That's the spirit," said Crisler
in a satisfied tone. "Now, what's
the score of this game, Kolesar,"
he continued, turning to his soph-
omore guard candidate.
"21-0, coach."

A fraternity bro of mine journeyed
into Detroit last Friday to catch a
first hand glimpse of the Series. A
big shot back in Cincy, he had ob-
tained his ducat from none other
than Powell Crosley.
He arrived in his seat, just be-
hind the Red dugout, shortly be-
fore game time. My bro listened
calmly while they announced the
Cincy line-up. Down the line went

My bro fumed. "That old guy. Oh,
fiddle sticks," or some such expres-
sion. "McKechnie must be crazy-
using a has-been like Turner. Why
he couldn't win in the Three-Eye
League," fumed my bro.
Just then a lady sitting beside him
picked up her little sonny two seats
away and put him next to my bro.
She, in turn, took up the seat her
sonny had formerly occupied.
My bro, the neighborly type,
glanced at the little kid and start-
ed to talk. "What do you think
about Turner, sonny?" he asked.
"He fine man. xie my pop."

Varsity Passes
It was another easy workout for
the Wolverine regulars yesterday af-
ternoon. The first-string backfield
and ends practiced Michigan pass-
ing plays against a squad of reserves
employing Harvard's 6-2-2-1 defense,
and then looked on while the second-
stringers went to work smothering
Crimson plays carried out by another
team of sparring mates. The regu-
lars then wound up the session by
going through a brisk signal drill.
Fullback Bob Westfall was back in
uniform apparently showing no ill
effects from the slight neck injury
suffered in the Spartan game. Aside
from halfback Norm Call, still nurs-
ing a wrenched ankle, the Varsity
squad is at full strength.

There is no doubt in anyone's
mind, least of all Coach Crisler's,
that Michigan is in for a puzzling if
not difficult afternoon Saturday at
All advance notices indicate that
Dick Harlow's subtle spinner-cycle
offense, involving blind-spot block-
ing, is clicking like a pair of Spanish
castanets. These same scouts report
that Harvard's intricate hidden ball
attack is the last word in deception.
Quarterback Key Man
The key man in Harlow's system is
the quarterback, who handles the
ball on every play. Directly behind,
and slightly to the left or right of
the quarter, depending upon which
way the play is going, is the full-
back. The other two men in the
backfield are wing-backs; i.e., they
line up right behind the ends or
wings. As soon as the ball is snapped
to the quarterback, the following
things transpire: he begins to spin
and as he reaches the half-way point,
with his back to the line of scrim-
mage, he either fakes or hands the
ball to the first wingback who is
cutting across parallel to the line of
scrimmage between the quarterback
and the fullback] In the event that
he faked, he hesitates until the other
wingback cuts across from the oppo-
site direction, and either fakes or
hands the ball to him. The same
procedure takes place with the full-
back who goes straight up the cen-
ter. If after all this razzle-dazzle
the quarterback still has the ball,
he either follows the wingbacks or
the fullback on a run, or drops back
to pass.
Ends Face Work
Ed Frutig and Joe Rogers, Wolver-
ine ends, will definitely be on the
spot against this particular type of
offense. "To slash or not to slash,"
that is the question, and the yardage
Harvard rolls up Satur'day, will indi-
cate pretty clearly whether or not

these Michigan ends were sucked in
because of their excess charging, or
just how many times the Crimson
backs drove outside the tackles as
the Varsity ends drifted and faded
to avoid being, circled.
According to Coach Ernie McCoy,
who scouted Harvard last week, Cap-
tain Joe Gardella will be the tough-
est blocking back the Wolverines
have seen in many a Saturday. Vern
Miller, 265-pound tackle, will cover
a great deal of ground, too.
Yes, Michigan is in for a puzzling
if not a difficult afternoon Saturday
against the Harvards.
