Games To Be
Played -Today
CHICAGO, Oct. 11-(P)-While
Michigan is engaged in a mighty in-
tersectional struggle with Army be-
fore 86,000 at Ann Arbor tomorrow,
surprising Northwestern and re-
bounding Illinois will try to sneak
alongside the Wolverines atop the
Western Conference standings.

Buckeyes, who make their Confer-
ference debut at Madison against
Wisconsin, a 28-0 upset victim of
Northwestern last Saturday.
Wildcats Rough
Northwstern's Wildcats ignored
in the summer book, have brushed
asid Iowa State and Wisconsin in
impressive style and should make it
three straight against the visiting
Gophers, who were pasted 21-0 by In-
diana last Saturday.
Coach Lynn Waldorf lost a stellar
guard this week when Ray Justak
quit the Wildcats to concentrate on
his law books, but Vic Schwall and
Frank Aschenbrenner give North-
westrn power Minnesota apparently
cannot match.
The Illini, with quarterback Perry
Moss" versatility offsetting the inabil-
ity of Buddy Young to get rolling,
are one touchdown favorites over the
host Hoosiers. Bo McMillin's defend-
ing champions, however, flashed
some trick spread stuff at Minne-
sota last week and his "Pore li'l boys
may be hard to handle.
Buckeyes Favorites
The Buckeyes are favored over the
Badgers mainly because the come-

James and Joe Whisler provide a
one-two offensive punch which may
overpower a Badger line weakened by
injury of star guard Ken Currier.
Notre Dame's Fighting Irish, win-
ners over Illinois and 'Pittsburgh,
should more or less toy with a Pur-

Howard Pollet
Lost for Series
BOSTON, Mass., Oct. 1 l-(A )--The
St. Louis Cardinals will have to win
the World Series without any fur-
ther help from their southpaw ace
Howard Pollet.j
The slender youngster with the
heart of an iron man is through for
this year. He learned that definitely
today when he failed to last an inn-
ing against the Red Sox in the fifth
World Series game.
Before the game Pollet said there
was little improvement in his arm,
despite daily treatment by trainer
Doc Weaver intpreparation for to-
day's contest.
"I'm still in pain," he said, "and
it increases every time I stretch to
deliver a pitch. I'm going to try it
this afternoon but if I'm not suc-
cessful the skipper (Managr Dyer)
will get me out of there quickly."
Pollet went in to pitch without the
taping he wore in the series opener.
But rest appears to be the only treat-
ment for the strained side and shoul-
der muscles which have bothered
him for more than a month.
Students sitting in Section 28-
35 are requested to be in their
seats by 1 p.m. to facilitate the
cheerleaders in making a block

Hold Your Bonds

Eight cheereaders will again be out
on the field this afternoon to lead
the yells against the Cadets, but a
slight shift in personnel will be ob-
served, as faculty adviser, Newton
Lokan, will join the ranks of his un-
derstudies in order that an even num-
ber can be maintained.
Lokan, who conducts classes at
Waterman Gym as a member of the
Physical Education Department, re-
places Tom Tillman, who will be un-
able to appear anymore this season.
Something new in the way of pre-
game entertainment will be seen, as
the cheerleaders, together with the
Pep Club have been making plans to
form a huge block M in the student
section of the stands, through the use
of 1,500 yellow and blue streamers.
Members of the Pep Club have
asked that students keep the color
given to them, stay in the same seat,
and watch the cheerleaders for in-
structions. The blue M op a yellow
background will be formed immedi-
ately after the Cadets finish their pa-
rade, which is scheduled to start at
1:10 p.m.
Some 10,000 printed sheets, con-
taining the yells and songs are also
to be distributed throughout sections
24 to 35 in order that the students
will be better able to join in when the

BOSTON, Oct. ll-(P)-Joe Dob-
son, a poor but honest relation of
Boston's pitching peeraige, twirled
himself a spectacular four-hit, eight-
strikeout game today to halt the Car-
dinals, 6 to 3, and send the Red Sox
flying back to St. Louis needing only
one more victory to wrap up the
World Series.
The big moon-faced righthander, a
last-hour choice of manager Joe
Cronin to pitch today's vital contest,
fairly covered himself with baseball
glory. He did not permit a single
earned run, all three St. Louis scores
crossing the plate as an outgrowth of
errors in the second and ninth in-
nings by shortstop Johnny Pesky.
Pollet Pitches To Four Sox
Howie Pollet, the victim of York's
10th-inning four-bagger in the open-
er at St. Louis, pitched to only four
Red Sox before manager Eddie Dyer
brought out Alpha Brazle. The trim
little lefty obviously didn't have a
thing today.
Don Gutteridge, who played second
for the Sox in place of Bobby Doerr,
who still was suffering with the head-
ache which forced him to quit yes-
terday's game in the last inning,
greeted Pollet with a sharp single
through second base, and Pesky fol-
lowed with a liner into right.
Dom DiMaggio' rapped into a force-
out, but Williams, braving the Cards'
"overbalanced" line-up in right, came

through handsomely with a sock over
Red Schoendienst that scored Pesky,
and that was a day's work for Pol-
Culberson Hits Homer
Brazle from that point on pitched
splendid ball, almost matching Dob-
son. He gave up another score in the
second as the Sox went ahead 2-1,
but it was a score that the Cards pro-
tested bitterly, and until Culberson
led off the sixth with a rather cheap
homer over the short left field fence,
the Cardinal southpaw was in full
The Cards had tied it up at 1-1 in
the second on Pesky's first error with
two down, which was followed by
Harry Walker's screaming double
down the left field line. It looked as
though St. Louis might remain very
much in the ball game, despite Pol-
let's disappointing start.
Boston Wins in Seventh.
Roy Partee, Sox relief catcher, led
off the second with a rap into center.
Dobson laid down a bunt and both
runners were safe on Whitey Kurow-
ski's throw to second. Gutteridge
came through with his second
straight single, a hot shot to center-
field, which scored Partee on a very
close plAy at the plate.
Leon Culberson's homer in the
sixth made it 3-1, and the Sox sewed
it up in the next with a three-run
splurge on doubles by DiMaggio and
Pinky Higgins,

Whizzer' White Proves To Be
A .Real Asset in The Backfield
Before the season opener with Indiana, the most perplexing question
of the average sports enthusiast was who would receive the starting assign-
ments at the various positions, except right half, where Paul White seemed
to be the obvious answer.
After a two and a half year hitch with the Marines at Parris Island and
in the Southwest Pacific, White returned this fall to take over the post that
he vacated in '43 after the Minnesota game which was fifth on the sched-
ule. As captain of the Wolverines that season, he led the squad to four vic-
tories and a lone defeat at the hands of Notre Dame before entering service.
With an all-state reputation inv
football and basketball following him
from River Rouge High School, White ootb l. ..

managed to play in every game after Foldberg is great on both defense
the big plaster cast came off, but and offense and was rated as the
showed up only as an average grid- third best end in the nation last year.






White's fame as a rugged runner
was earned during the '42 session,
and with quarterback George Ceit-
haml calling on him for a few left-
handed passes, White became one of
the main cogs in Crisler's football
All-around Athlete
With respect for another renowned
football star, his teammates dubbed
him "Whizzer," and he proved that
he really was a whiz by leading the
rest of the squad in scoring with 48
points. At the end of -the season Paul
was elected captain of the '43 squad.
Although newspaper writers
haven't used reams of copy extolling
White's merits, his dependable offen-
sive play and rugged defensive service
mark him as one of the mainstays of
the Maize and Blue team this year.

Poole, who has replaced the grad-
uated Dick Pitzer at the ,other end,
was another thorn in the Michigan
side last fall with his pass-catching
and defensive play.
The tackles have provided a big
problem for Blaik and his assistants
but the Army mentor thinks he has
solved the question with a couple of
200-pounders, Goble Bryant and
Shelton Biles. Bryant is a transfer
from Texas A & M where he was an
ex-team captain while Biles, a re-
serve last fall, was moved over from
guard to fill the tackle vacancy and
has shown up well.
Again the Maize and Blue starting
line-up will depend on whether the
Wolverines receive or kick off. If
Michigan kicks off, Crisler will prob-
ably start Bob Weise in place of
Howie Yerges at quarter.
