Card Star Chalks Up
13 First Place Votes


NAW YORK, Nov 2-(M)-Stan
*sial, right fielder whose stickwork
brought him the National League
batting championship and was a ma-
Sor factor in the drive of the St. Lou-
is Cardinals to their second straight
pbainant, has been named' the
League's most valuable player for
The selection was made by a com-
mittee of. the Baseball Writers' As-
sociation, and the personable young
str polled a total of 267 points out of
apossible 336, receiving 13 of 24 first-
place votes.
closest rival was a teammate,
catcher Walker Cooper, who drew
five first-place votes and a point to-
tal of 192, the points being awarded
on the basis of 10 for first place, nineE
for second, eight for third, etc.
Only two other players were hon-
ored with votes for first place. Burly
Bill Nicholson, Chicago Cub outfield-
er, drew five such ballots and wound
up in third place with a point total
of 181. The other first place vote went
to Clyde Shoun, veteran relief hurl-
er-and toward the end of the sea-s

son a starter-for the Cincinnati
Each of the 24 voters listed 10 play-
ers in order of preference, and Mu-
sial was the only man to be included
on the list of every voter. In addition
to his 13 votes for first place, he re-
ceived six for second, one for third,
two for fourth, one for sixth and one
for seventh.
Cincinnati led the list in number
of nominations, seven Reds being
named on the various lists. Brooklyn
and St. Louis each had five nominees,
New York and Chicago four each, and
Philadelphia, Boston and Pittsburgh
three each. Mickey Witek topped the
Giant nominees with 21 points,
Schoolboy Rowe led the Philadelphia
players with 18 points and Al Javery
topped the Boston players with 12
- Musial, 22 and playing his second
full season with the Cardinals, bat-
ted .357 to lead his nearest rival, Billy
Herman, by 26 points. He came up
near the close of the 1941 season and
batted a sensational .426 in 12 games.
'In 1942 he hit .315 in 140 games.

Prepare for
Hoosier Star
New Varsity Lineup
Goes Through Stiff
Pass Defense Drill
Instead of the usual mysterious Mr.
X, Michigan's football team is hear-
ing plenty about the well Known Mr.
H as it prepares for its clash with In-
diana here Saturday.
The well known Mr. H is Bobby
Hoerschemeyer, the Hoosier's triple-
threat freshman halfback. The Wol-
verines are too busy building up a de-
fense against Mr. H to take the time
to pronounce his name every time
they wish to refer to him, and they
refer to him plenty.
Mr. H can run and pass well
enough to be listed up among the na-
tion's leading ground gainers, but it's
his passing that worries the Wolver-
ines most. So far this season he's
completed 49 out of 110 attempts for
a total of 949 yards, and it was his
second pass last Saturday that turned
back Ohio State.
So in today's practice sessions
U. of M. once again stressed pass de-
fense. End Coach Benny Oosterbaan,
best known as an All-American pass-
snatching end but who often dropped
out of the line to pass in his senior
year at Michigan, and George Welch,
a third string halfback, took turns
tossing the pigskin to the reserves
against the varsity's new lineup.
As expected, Coach Fritz Crisler
switched Bob Wiese back to his old
spot at fullback while alternating Joe
Ponsetto and Jim Aliber at quarter-
back, to fill in for the departed Bill
Daley. Wally Dreyer and Earl Maves
took turns at the right halfback po-
sition that both had played in the
Illinois game.
Big Bob Derleth, a letterwinner
last year, will be called upon to fill
the tremendous shoes of Merv Pre-
gulman. Derleth saw action against
both Minnesota and the Illini, but
in both games Pregulman was there
to spell off Fred Negus, or to go in
just in case the enemy began rolling.
And Bob Hanzlik and Rex Wells
will try to make up for the loss of
Pregulman's educated toe, the toe
that booted 21 out of 24 tries through
the uprights.


Michigan Jumps to Sixth in Gridiron Poll

NEW YORK, Nov. 2.-(P)-Foot-I
ball results so far this season have.
given the gridiron experts a pretty
clear idea of where -most of the
power is to be found. And in this
week's Associated Press ranking poll
they summed it up in two words:
"Notre Dame."
The Irish, triumphant over Navy,
33-6, last Saturday, not only re-
tained their place at the top of the
ranking list but they received the
first place votes of 97 of 101 partici-
pants for a total of 1,005 points.
Purdue, victorious in seven straight
games, mostly by one-sided scores,
shaded Army and Southern Califor-
nia in a close contest for second
place. Pennsylvania, Michigan, Navy,
Iowa Pre-Flight, Duke and the Col-
lege of the Pacific, in that order,
completed the first ten.
What the rankings failed to give,
however, was a picture of where the
teams may stand in another week.
With Notre Dame losing Angelo
Bertelli, Purdue losing Tony Butko-
vich and Michigan losing Bill Daley

through Marine-Navy transfers and
most of the other leading clubs suf-
fering as well, there is a prospect of
more than one upset next Saturday.
Notre Dame plays its big game of
the season this week against Army
in New York and the Cadets always
give one of their best performances
against the Irish. Army dropped from
second place in the rankings to third
after its 13-13 tie with Penn, but by
only a small margin-695 points to
Purdue's 726. In addition, Army and*
Navy are the only "first ten" teams
unaffected by midseason transfers.
Purdue faces battered Minnesota
this week and Southern California,
which divided the four left-over first
place vptes with Penn, meets the San
Diego Naval Training Station. Penn
encounters Navy in a game that may
afford the Midshipmen, who dropped
from third place to seventh, a chance
to regain some lost territory.
Michigan is busy rebuilding and
"fearing" Indiana's civilian team.
Iowa Pre-Flight has a Sunday game
against Marquette and Duke, which

conquered Georgia Tech despite the
loss of a flock of Navy trainees, plays
the weak North Carolina State outfit.
College of the Pacific meets under-
manned St. Mary's.
The leading teams, counting 10
points for first place vote, nine for
second, etc. (First place votes in

Stagg Loses Five Veterans
From Best Pacific Team
Amos Alonzo Stagg's great College of
the Pacific football team, which com-
pared favorably with any in his 54
years of coaching, was practically
broken up today.
Eleven players were enroute to
Parris Island, S. C., transferred there
for additional training in the U.S.
Marine Corps. Five were regular
