Early Marker
Sends Spartans,
Down to Defeat
Mississippi State Goes
85 Yards To Win, 6-0
By The Associated Press
EAST LANSING, Mich., Oct. 12-A
hard-running Mississippi State Col-
lege elevn took the opening kickoff
and marched 85 yards for the lone
touchdown of the day as it edged
Michigan State 6 to 0 today.
A crowd of 22,125 wet, chilled spec-
tators saw halfbacks Larry Matu-
lich and Tom "Shorty" McWilliams
spark the scoring drive which saw
Matulich plunge over from the four-
yard line on the 14th running play
of the game..
The winners then survived a pair
of Spartan drives to the five-yard
line in the second and third periods
to post their first win over Michigan
MSC's Second Defeat
Failure to match Mississippi State's
double first-string line cost Coach
Charley Bachman's team its second
successive defeat against a single vic-
tory over Wayne University. The
Spartans made two drives via the air-
ways, but each time lost the ball on
downs after failing to push over for
the scpre.
Meanwhile, Mississippi State was
ripping big holes in the Spartans' line
to hold the Michigan State ground
attack to a mere 21 yard net. The
Maroons, with Matulich, McWilliams
and Capt. Billy "Shook" Murphy car-
rying the attack, picked up 182 yards
rushing and added 23 on one complet-
ed pass.
Drive 57 Yards
The Southern eleven opened the
fourth period with a 57-yard drive
that ended on the one-yard line after
Murphy had hammered away at the
center of the Michigan State line for
three plays. The Spartans perked
up after halting that threat and came
back to their own 37, but were forced
to punt on fourth down.

Series Slants

St. Louis, Oct. 12 - (A)- Only
the speed and the cunning in the
left arm of Harry (The Cat) Bre-
cheen stands tonight between the
Cardinals and sudden death in the
1946 World Series.
Tailing two games to three to the
revived Boston Red Sox in the big
autumn play-off, the National League
champions must win here tomorrow
behind their acrobatic little south-
paw star or accept second money.
Seldom in series history has there
been a more dramatic build-up for
one of the final, crucial contests. For,
opposing Brecheen, will be the burly
Dave (Boo) Ferriss, the 25-game win-
ner, out to throttle the Cards for the
second time and bring the Red Sox
their first championship since 1918.
Both pitched shutouts in their
previous series starts. Brecheen,
the little fellow with the big screw-
ball, baffled the Sox sluggers in
the second game, setting them
down with four widely spaced hits
to square the play-off at a victory
a piece.
Ferriss, not to be outdone, came
right back in the third game at Bos-
ton to handcuff the Red Birds with
six blows and again put the Ameri-
can Leaguers out in front. The meet-
ing of the two shutout artists at
Sportsman's Park tomorrow is a nat-
Yesterday's sensational four-hit
triumph by Joe Dobson, one of Bos-
ton's junior varsity flingers, came as
manna to Cronin, who had about run
out of pitchersiafter Thursday's
holocaust in which the Cards bat-
tered six of his hirelings for 20 hits.
Dobson struck out eight, including
Whitey Kurowski and Terry Moore
twice each, and he did not walk a
man until the ninth inning.
Perhaps the most amazing fea-
ture of the play-off up to this
point has been the impunity-one
might almost say the impudence-
with which the Cardinals have
pitched to Ted Williams.

12-1P)-It is highly improbable that
and team ever went into the end of
a- World Series with as many crip-
pling injuries as the St. Louis Cardi-
nals have today as they prepare to
meet the Boston Red Sox in the sixth
and what may be the final game of
the current classic.
At least six regular members of
the team-Ends (Country) Slaugh-
ter, Terry Moore, Howie Pollet,
Marty Marion, Al Schoendienst and
Whitey Kuroaski-are on the semi-
invalid list.
Probably the most serious injury
is the 9ne suffered by Slaughter, the
rightfielder, who has been finding the
range of late with his booming bat.
Slaughter was forced to retire from
yesterday's game when hit on the
right elbow by an errant pitch by Joe
Dobson, and both he and manager
Eddie Dyer were pessimistic about his
return to the lineup tomorrow.
The loss of Slaughter might be f a-
tal to the Cards. In addition to his
superior fielding and trmendous
throwing arm, Country leads all the
series hitters with 12 total bases and
is the only Cardinal to hit a home.
It is fairly certain that Pollet,
who tried courageously to stem the
Boston bats despite an extremely
painful back ailment in yesterday's
6-3 defeat, will not throw another
ball in this series. A source who
should know but refused to be iden-
tified, said:
"His back and side are in awful
shape. How that boy can throw at
all is a miracle to me."
Moore's playing status has been in
doubt due to a damaged right knee.
Marion's aching back has been act-
ing up again as a result of the train
rides from St. Louis to Brooklyn to
St. Louis to Boston and back to St.
Louis within two weeks.
The Cardinals of today may not be
the quality of the gas house gang of
a decade ago in ability, but they are
just as game.

Rumored Iarclay
Going to Harvard
Atiletic Director H. O. (Fritz)
Crisler was noncommittal last
night on a report that Bill Bar-
clay, Michigan golf coach and as-
sistant basketball coach, would be
named to the Harvard University
coaching staff as head basketball
Barclay who also scouts for the
Wolverine football team was at
Northwestern to look over the
Wildcats yesterday and could not
be reached for comment. William
J. Bingham, Harvard's athletic di-
rector, could not be reached at his
Cambridge, Mass., home for con-
firmation of the possible Harvard
Barclay joined the Michigan
coaching staff in 1942 as an assist-
ant in football and basketball. A
year ago Barclay was made head
golf coach.

On State:
At Head Of North U. WE DELIVER

Every week, while thousands of
fanatic gridiron fans are cheering
their heros on to greater heights,
there is a small group of men who
battle their way into crowded foot-
ball stadiums, struggle into their seats
among the confused multitude in or-
der to see games they can never en-
This is the plight of a football
scout, a group to which Ernie McCoy
of the Michigan football coaching
staff can claim membership since
McCoy Returned from Navy
During the war years Head Coach
"Fritz" Crisler lost the services of
McCoy when the Michigan scout en-
tered the Navy to work in the aviation
physical training program. This year
in addition to his scouting duties,
McCoy is helping Wally Weber coach
the "B" team.

According to McCoy, whether a
scout diagrams the plays of only one
rival eleven or several during the sea-
son, depends on how late in the grid-
iron campaign that opponent is met.
This fall McCoy will be scouting
Michigan State in two of the Spar-
tan's games, and he will also take
stock of the fighting Illini in one of
their contests.
In other sections of the country one
school can send as many scouts to
cover an opponent's game as they
please, but Western Conference mem-
bers, by agreement, send only one
scout to each gridiron clash.
Scouts Watch Play
McCoy declared that besides the
general offensive and defensive abil-
ity of the team, the scout must take
note of such details as the exact po-
sition and spacing of the players in
each offensive and defensive forma-

A scout must also look for the dif-
ferent defenses that are used in par-
ticular situations, depending upon
the yardage needed by the opposing
"Not only team ability but also in-
dividuals," said McCoy, "come under
the scrutiny of a football scout."
Whether a certain player is a fast or
slow charger, a good or bad blocker or
if he reveals any defects that can be
taken advantage of, are of vital con-
cern to a team in preparing a success-
ful attack and defense.
McCoy Debunks Player's Tips
Although some story-book writers
would have us believe that one player
can tip of f the opposition as to the
next offensive 'play by some peculiar
habit, McCoy stated that never in his
experience as a scout has a major
eleven tipped its hand so completely
by such a cue that it lost the game.
