It'll be the end of all card displays
for the season and probably "the dur-

Defense priorities in the paper in-

reams of colered cardboard too dear
for the Michigan Union's pocketbook,
so Jim Edmunds, '43, who is running
the thing says.
'Complicated markings and direc-

seats in sections 25, 26, and 27 telling
you just which way to hold your card
to spell out "'M" or "Iowa" or what-
ever the cheerleader tells you to do.
According to- Edmunds who has
been directing a crew of sophomores
in putting the 25,000 markings on the
pasteboards, tomorrow's show will be
the biggest ever.
The eight-display show will climax
in a Maize and Blue "V" for victory
enclosing an "M" for Michigan with
the Morse version of "V"-three dots

3-2 Win Squares World
Series At One Game;-
Pitcher Chandler Chased
Action To Resume
in Brooklyn Today
Oct. 2-()-Brooklyn's battlig, al-
ways courageous Dodgers fought
their way from behind today to a 3
to 2 triumph over the New York
Yankees and levelled the World Se-
ries before another tremendous turn-
out of 66,248 fans.
John Whitlow Wyatt, tall and bald,
this year's standout among all the
National League's pitchers, turned
the trick for the Dodgers.
The 32-year-old Georgia right-
hander was pelted for nine hits by
the Yankees, seven of them in the
first four innings, but he seemed to
get better as he went along and he
never let the Yanks get wound up.
Never Loses Poise ,
He was marvelous with men on
bases and even though the Yanks
managed to get at least two runners
on the bags in six different innings,
Wyatt never lost his poise.
A double by Tom Henrich was tie
only extra base blow he permit
and after the fourth inning he kept
the bombers virtually smothered. Al-
together he caused the American
League champs to leave 10 runners.:
The Yanks got to him for single
runs in the second and third innings
and made the spectators start think-
ing the duel was to be a second show-
ing of yesterday's opener which New
York won by the same score 3 to 2.
But it was another Georgia boy,
Spurgeon (Spud) Chandler, who
cracked first.
Chandler Chased In Sixth
The Dodgers, who were held to six
hits during the game, broke their
bonds for two runs on a pair of walks
and two hits in the fifth inning to
tie the score and then punched over
the winning run and chased Chandler
from the box in the sixth.
For four innings Chandler was
masterful, fanning two men inthe
first inning and facing only the m-in
imm 12 batters. When Joe Med-
wick singled in the second he was
immediately erased by the first of
three Yankee double plays.
Then Chandler gave his first pass
to the first Dodger, up in the fifth
inhing, Dolph Camilli, who had fan-
ned three straight times yesterday
and hadn't been on base previously
during the series.
Medwick followed immediately
with a hard double that bounded
against the low wall in left field,
sending Camilli to third and Cookie
Lavagetto waited out another walk
to load the bases.
Reese Scores Camillia
Peewee Reese smashed a hot
grounder to shortstop Phil Rizz±to;
who threw to Joe Gordon in time
to forge Lavagetto, but Camilli scored
and Reese was safe at first as Gor-
don's hurried relay bounced from the
ground into John Strum's glove and
out again. Then Mickey Owen
punched a ground single into left
field for another run.
A fast double play on Wyatt pulled'
Chandler out of this jam, but in the
sixth inning Gordon made a bad
throw on Dixie Walker's grounder,
Billy Herman singleq him to third to
rout Chandler, and after ,Johnny
Murphy 'had fanned P'ete' Reiser,-
Camilli looped a single into right
field for the winning run.-
Thus ended the domination of the
Yankees in World Series play. They
.had not been beaten in the autumn
classic since October, 9, 1937, when
the New York Giants captured theirF

He said that sulfadiazine which
only went on sale in drug stores
Aug. 8, is at present the most effect-
ive of the family and is already sup-
planting the other members.
"But even these have an outstand-

The chief hurdle in national de-
fense production has been the prob-
lem of bridging the space between de-
fense orders and defense products on
hand, Ormand E. Hunt, '07E, vice-
president of General Motors declafed
last night.
Addressing the Medical Alumni
Reunion banquet, Mr. HHunt pointed
out two factors hampering industry
in meeting defense needs: the vast
difference between civilian products
and military products, and the con-:
tinual change in design of military
"Industry is making the necessary.
changes," he explained, "and it is
not our fault if orders were not
placed early enough."
In the aggressor nations industry
was geared to make the change from
civilian to military production. In
Germany one auto plant produced
trucks meeting military specifica-

tary needs, it is necessary to change
machinery, to bring together differ-
ent types of workmen, and to produce
a greater variety of articles.
As an example of public ignorance
of this fact, Mr. Hunt pointed out the
false but general belief that auto and
airplane engines are virtually the
same. ,
Actually the difference between the
two is great, making the process of
changing from auto to airplane
motor production a tremendous one,
he said.
Pointing out the difference, Mr.
Hunt explained that auto engines are
developed to secure the most econom-
ical type for the general public. Air-
plane engines, however, are developed
with an eye to getting the greatest
horsepower from the lowest possible
weight, regardless of expense. Auto
engines weigh six' pounds per horse-
power, while airplane engines weigh
less than a pound per horsepower.
