Gridmen Test
Spartan Plays
Call Remains On Sidelines
To Rest Injured Heel
Swinging into more intensive drill
for Saturday's grid clash with Mich-
#gan State, Fritz Crisler's Wolverine
squad yesterday got a good look at
the Spartan's Notre Dame forma-
tions as interpreted by a red-shirted
third string outfit.
Neither the varsity nor the second
team was fooled much by,, the State
plays, however, smothering them for
the most part with facility.
Fleet right halfback Norm Call
remained the only serious casualty,
not partaking in active drill. The
speedster still favors his bruised heel,
but it is likely that it will round into
shape before the Spartan invasion.
After practice yesterday the entire
squad received its first 1940 view of
itself in action when the movies of
the California debacle were shown
at the Union. The shots generally
substantiatpd the game reports of
fine block g on the part of every
individual.
Also brought out clearly was Tom
Harmon's -exceptionally fine 86-yard
touchdown jaunt in which six Bears
had clear shots at him in addition
to the 'inebriated gentleman who
took it upon himself, to attempt to
halt the Hammer on the two-yard-
line. All failed.
Making it a double feature, the
coaching staff also flashed scenes of
last year's Michigan State game on
the screen to refresh the Wolverine
gridmen's memories of the Spartan's
style of play.

Hard-Hitting Sophomore

When right halfback Norm Call
was injured on the third play of
the California game last Saturday,
rugged Bob Kresja stepped right
into the spot, filling it in capable
fashion. Packing 195 pounds on
his five foot, eleven inch frame,
sophomore Kresja's chief gridiron
forte is blocking.
Phil Marcellus' 75 Wins
Frosh Links Tournament.
Phil Marcellus turned in the low
card in the annual Orientation Week
Golf Tournament, held Saturday -on
the University Course. Marcellus'
75 took the top prize over Bob Cor-
ley's 77 in second and Jack O'Don-
nell's third-place 79.
Other finishers in the starting field
of 22 were Bill Courtright, 83; Ronnie
Bernstein, 85; Bill Brooks, 86; Bill
Ludolph, 87; Rodney Stiling, 89;
Dick Emery, 90; and John Ingersoll,
101.
FRATERNITY NOTICE
Plans for the coming I-M Sports
season will be discussed at a
meeting of the athletic managers
of all .general fraternities at 7:30
p.m. tonight in Room 305 at the
Union.

Tigers Pieked
To Overpower
Crippled Reds
Detroit's Murderer's Row,
Injuries To Lombardi,
Frey Worry Cincinnati
(Continued from Page 1)
Turner following in that order.
The big Kentuckian's curves al-
ways have baffled the American
League batters, accustomed to look-
ing at fast-ball pitching, and in this
bulwark the Reds braced all their
hopes.
Newsom Has Speed
But no one could explain how Cin-
cinnati would get any runs. New-
som, a 21-5 standout in the Amer-
ican League this season, has a puz-
zling motion and more speed than
the Reds have been looking at most
of the year.
Behind him, Baker has Schoolboy
Rowe, Tommy Bridges and probably
Gorsica ,in mind. Rowe particularly
has made an impressive comeback
this year, winning 16 and losing only
3. Baker huddled with both Rowe
and Newsom for a long time today
before finally announcing Big Bobo
as his starter..,
The Reds, a great defensive club
with scant punch, unquestionably
were weakened by the injuriesthat
befell them in the closing days of
the season. Lombardi, who sprained
an ankle recently, worked out today
and looked better than he did Sun-
day, but admitted glumly: "I can't
run. 'It'll be a miracle if I can play'."
Frey Probably Out
Frey, in uniform for the first time
since an iron water-cooler lid fell
on his foot last Friday, tried cour-
ageously to look like a fit player, but
Trainer Doc Rhode said he didn't
see how Frey would be able to get
into action.
Because the Reds are prety well
fixed for reserve strength, McKech-
nie was expected to choose able sub-
stitutes ahead of injured regulars.
This meant that 40-year-old Jimmy
Wilson, former manager of the Phil-
lies, might catch every game and
that slim Eddie Joost might go the
whole way at the keystone.
Even with superlative pitching,
good defense and smart base-run-
ning it's hard to see how the crip-
pled Cincinnati club can withstand
the belting Bengals, who have the
best murderers' row in baseball since
the Yankees began falling apart.

DAILY DOUBLE
Cal Joe's And Lulu's Spirit .. .
The last surviving reader of the Daily Double will probably raise his,
shaggy eyebrows, protest sharply with "aw, the guy's nuts" and turn over
to the women's page after he reads this statement. But even so, I must be
frank. I like my football the California way.
Now don't take me wrong. I haven't gone completely loco. By saying
that, I didn't mean to have you believe that I prefer the type of football?
that Stub Allison and his boys play. I am not referring to the brand of
football at all, boys and girls, but rather the trimmings that go with it, the
color, the attitude, etc.
Perhaps I can make it clear with an example. Pretend that you're
in Ann Arbor, which ought not be very hard to do. It is the eve before
a Michigan football game, and little Joe, the campus hot-shot, has been
home all night trying to get either Mosher-Jordan or the Theta house.
He's tried both lines for three hours now, but no luck. They've been busy
right straight through.
Joe wants a date desperately. Tomorrow is a football game, and that
means a chance for a cheap but good time. He can pick her up at one and
that saves buying her lunch. She has a ticket to the game, so all he has to
do is swap with the guy sitting next to him and there is no expense there.
While the game is going on, he sits very close to friend Lulu Belle,
the campus queen . . . especially so if they've squeezed somebody extra
in his row, as is always the case. When the play gets exciting, he holds
her hand, 'cause she might get nervous and maybe she might fall out
of the stands, or something.
Between halves, JoE and Lulu stay right in their seats. He tells her it's
too crowded to try and get something to eat. Besides the band will play,
and they have to hold up the cards in the display that the cheer leaders are
yelling about.
Lulu makes a perfect mess of the card display. She's too busy looking
to see what Sadie, the Pi Phi, is wearing to bother with such trivia. It doesn't
make much difference though, since nobody around is getting the right
card out, nor putting it in the right place. Across the stands, the enemy fol-
lowers are certain that Michigan is attempting to picture the Huron River
in their display. but really it was supposed to be a block M.
After the game, Joe takes Lulu home. It was cheap, but good. Lulu
is very grateful. The game was swell, she thinks. Joe was swell, Every-
thing was swell except Pi Phi Sadie's dress.
Now let me tell you about the way the thing works on the Berkeley
campus.
California Joe goes to the game all right, but he goes with the fellows.
They all dress up in white shirts with blue and gold caps and they leave
early, 'cause seats in the all-men's cheering section are hard to get ahold of
when the game draws near. Their student seats are not reserved, inci-
dentally. First come, first served is the motto and there's room for 6,000 in
the 50-yard roped off section.
California Joe can't bring California Lulu to the game, 'cause no
women are allowed in the white-shirted cheering section. The coeds
have their own roped off seats, on either side of the men, and the gals
spend the day waving yellow and blue pompoms all in unison according
to the orders of the cheer leaders. Incidentally, Cal Lulu isn't interested
in what Cal Sadie is nearing since they all come in white blouses, and
they're all about the same.
Between halves came the card display, and it's really amazing, to see
the tricks that can be performed if the cardboards are held the right way.
Last Saturday, they drew out a clear and distinct picture of Fielding Yost.
They also had a flame swallowing up the Wolverine that was dropped from
an airplane. Unfortunately, it was labeled "Cal's Hot" and with the score
21-0 at the time, it naturally brought forth the additional comment .
"and bothered."
Frankly, the whole thing impressed me tremendously. It added
color and lustre to the game. It seemed evidence of a wholesome and
highly desirable college spirit. Even their most simple display would
have put our Huronic or should I say moronic block M to shame.
After the game, Cal Joe has a date with Cal Lulu and everything ends
swell, just like before.
Yes, I like my football the California way.
Oh, and before I forget, how about going to the Michigan State game
with me, Lulu.
Pick you up around 1:30.

As the opening of the touch foot-
ball season on Oct. 9 approaches, the
Intramural1Department has sent out
a warning to all independent men
interested in competing on a team in
any sport to submit their names to
the department at the Sports Build-
ing.
All non-fraternity undergraduates
and fraternity men not having an
active chapter on campus are eligible
to compete in the independent divi-

sion. Any eligible man may organ-
ize a team, but those who do, not
have the necessary contacts may sub-
mit= their names and the department
will place them on teams short of
players or organize teams for them.
Teams must submit their final
players' lists before their second
scheduled games. All-year squads
are unlimited in number, but only
15 awards will be given the winning
squad.

MICHIGfIN UNION
SWIMMING POOL

By ART HILL
Louis Norman (Bo-Bo) Newsom,
the pitcher who has been nominated
to pitch the opening game of the
World Series for the Detroit Tigers,
has never lacked confidence in him-
self and, with the October Classic
about to begin, he still feels the
same way.
Whether you're a Tiger fan or a
rabid Red follower, you can bet your
ticket to the Series that Loud Louie

(as he is affectionately referred to
by his team-mates) will be just as
sure he is going to win as he is that
the Series won't be decided in less
than four games.
It takes more than a little thing
like a World Series to phase a pitcher
who has been through as long and
checkered a career as Buck has. He
broke into the Major Leagues with
Brooklyn, which is enough to break
the spirit of any ordinary man.
That was in 1929 and the following
year, the pitiless Dodger manage-
ment shipped the big fellow to Jer-
sey City. Undaunted, Bo-Bo contin-
ued to cherish the insane notion that
he might some day play big league
ball. He spent the next four years
in the minor leagues except for a
sojourn with the Cubs in 1932, where
he stayed just long enough to have
a cup of coffee at the club's expense.
In 1934. Buck came up with the
St. Louis Browns and he has been
an American Leaguer ever since. He
spent time with Washington and
the Boston Red Sox and then re-
turned to the Browns where he won
