Boston Cards Decide Ch ampionship in Series Final'



Nothing Final
On Cage Post
Bingham Denies That
Decision Is Imminent
Speculation that Bill Barclay
might be named to the head basket-
ball' coaching vacancy at Harvard
University continued last night when
the Crimson athletic director, Wil-
liam J. Bingham, stated that "Har-
vard was definitely on the market
for a cage mentor.''
In a telephone conversation with
The Daily, Bingham confirmed this
fact but stated that Harvard officials
had made no decision concerning the
vacancy and that rumors.that the
announcement would be forthcom-
ing today are unfounded.
Bignham declined to comment on
whether Barclay was being consid-
ered for the post but authoritative
sources in the Michigan athletic de-
partment have indicated that the
Wolverine assistant basketball and
football mentor is being considered
for the position.
Barclay has also served on the
Michigan coaching staff as head golf
coich since 1945 and is regarded as
one of the State's top golfers. Bar-
clay joined the Wolverine coaching
staff in 1942.

Bob Chappuis Pushes Through Line

BOB CHAPPUIS (49), Michigan fullback pushes through the line for a two-yard gain against Army in
the first quarter of Saturday's clash.

.Rules Clarify
.'M' Penalties
First Set-back Called
Offensive Interference
Daly Sports Editor
Some controversy has arisen among
fans who witnessed Saturday's
Army-Michigan football game as to
the reason for the two 15-yard pen-
alties assessed against the Wolver-
ines in the closing seconds of the
The first penalty was charged
against Michigan for offensive in-
terference. Rule 7, section 5, article
4 of the Official NCAA Football Rules
Book states:
"During a forward pass play
(whether or not the pass crosses the
line of scrimmage) there shall be no
interference whatsoever beyond the
line of scrimmage with any player of
either team who is eligible to catch
the pass, except such interferences
as may occur when two or more eli-
gible players make a simultaneous
and bona fide effort to catch or bat
the ball."
The rule book further states:
"Illegal interference by the passing
team-Loss of 15 yards from the
spot of the preceding down, the play
to count as a doxin." In the judg-
ment of the officials Saturday a
Michigan man was guilty of offensive
interference. The Wolverines were,
accordingly, penalized 15 yards back
to the Army 26.
Whether the officials' decision was
correct is not the question. They
were on the spot at the time of the
foul and they called the play as they
saw it. Motion pictures of the game
do not show the play in its entirety
since the camera was following the
course of the ball, rather than the
The second 15-yard penalty was
assessed against Michigan for illegal
use of the hands.

Practice Sessions Wednesday
Ozzie Cowles, Ex-Dartmouth Mentor, Starts
First Campaign as Wolverine Cage Coach

Bosox Still Favored
Despite Sunday Loss
ST. LOUIS, Oct. 14.-UP)-What-
ever happens in the seventh and de-
ciding game of the World Series to-
morrow, Manager Eddie Dyer's scrap-
ping St. Louis Cardinals already have
blasted the myth of the American
League's vast post-war supremacy
over the National, which was fostered
mainly by the slaughter of the Na-
tionals in this year's All-Star game.
In battling from behind three times
to deadlock the play-off, the Cards
have demonstrated conclusively that
they are on a par with the club that
made a runaway of the American
League race. In several departments,
especially fielding, they have looked
the superior outfit.
Odds Favor Boston
The odds have appeared to be far
out of line from the start, and they
still look very attractive for those
who think the rebounding Red Birds
can stop Ted Williams and Company
tomorrow and wrap up their sixth
World Championship in nine tries.
Betting Commissioner J. J. Carroll
announced today that every $10 bet
on the Cards to beat big Dave (Boo)
Rosy Outlook
The LOS ANGELES, Oct. 14--(P)
-THE winner of the Michigan-
Northwestern game Saturday ver-
sus the Pacific Coast Conference
champion-probably UCLA-was
the Jan. 1 Rose Bowl lineup pre-
dicted today by a close Midwest-
ern observer.
"Both Michigan and Northwest-
ern, undefeated Big Nine conten-
ders, are in favor of the proposed
Rose Bowl tieup," Fred Delano,
former Michigan publicity director,
told football writers at their week-
ly meeting.
Delano, now withwthe Detroit
Pro Lions, said he was "reliably
informed that the vote was at least
five-to-four in favor of sending the
Conference champion in the Rose
Coach Bert La Brucherie of
UCLA dodged all Rose Bowl talk
with the curt comment: "We're
playing California this week.
Commissioner. Vic. Schmidt. of
the Coast Conference later said his
office has received no word from
the Western Conference. He re-
fused to comment on Delano's pre-

Ferriss in the final would return $12.
The same sum placed on the Sox will
bring back only $7.
National Leaguers Confident
The Nationals, from President Ford
Frick on down, were an exuberant
crowd today, fully confident that
Murry Dickson would duplicate the
feat of Brecheen, and hamstring the
Sox in the season's grand climax.
Although the Cardinals admit to
great respect for Ferriss, who blanked
them with six hits in Boston, they
feel that they have quite a pitcher
themselves in the pint-sized Dickson.
Both sides expect it to be a tense
hurling duel.
Whether the Cards ever will get
to Ferriss is a question. The 25-
game winner looked like he might

have kept them away from the plate
until sundown up in Boston.
Brecheen Ready If Needed
Should Dickson wobble at any time
tomorrow,por should the Cards need
to protect a short lead in the late
innings, it is entirely possible that
the Sox will have to puzzle over Bre-
cheen's dipsy-doos for the third time.
The diminutive lefty said today his
arm did not feel tired and that he
would be ready if and when Mana-
ger Dyer beckoned.
Never has a play-off been more
greatly blessed with its weather. Day
after day the sun has shone on
schedule, and the air had only a
slight nip one day in Boston. It
didn't seem possible, but the wea-
therman said tomorrow would be
the same.

Michigan's varsity basketball forces
will begin their preparation for the
winter Big Nine cage campaign this
Wednesday when the whistle will be
blown for the first practice session in
Yost Field House.
Introductions will be in order for
everybody concerned, with Ozzie
Cowles, the new basketball coach,
gettiig his first look at a squad
which, for the present, will include
only three lettermen from last
year's team.
Cowles was appointed head cage
mentor last August, coming to Michi-
gan with an impressive eight-year
record at Dartmouth College, where
he led the Hanover Indians to seven
Ivy League championships. He suc-
ceeds Bennie Oosterbaan, head coach
since 1938, who .was promoted to the
number two slot on the football
coaching staff.
Returning from last season for
the first training period are for-
wards Bob Baker and Gordon Ros-
encrans, and center Marty Fein-
Former Tank Star
Confined with TB
Suffering from the same disease
that Tom Kuzma and Julie Franks
contracted, Jim Skinner, former
Michigan pool star, has been a T.B.
patient in the University Hospital
since last summer.
Skinner last swam the breaststroke
for Matt Mann's crew in '41 when
he took both the NCAA and AAU

berg. Gone from the roster are
such performers as Bob Harrison,
Dave Strack, Glen Selbo, John
Mullaney, and Walt Kell.
The end of the present football
campaign will increase the list of
cage veterans when Pete Elliot, a
regular last year, and Bob Wiese,
regular in 1943 and '44, may report
for duty along with several other
gridders, including Dick Rifenberg,
Jack Weisenberger, Bruce Hilkene,
and Len Ford.
Coach Cowles is taking the long-
range view towards Wolverine bas-
ketball prospects this year, and is
planning to build the nucleus for
future Maize and Blue outfits as
well as the 1947 aggregation. It is
a safe bet, however, that he will be
out to bring the Wolverines down
to the wire in front. Recalling that
last year's squad finished seventh
in the Big Nine, winning six games
and losing six, one can see that
Cowles' job is cut, out for him.
Plans have also been drawn up for
the formation of a "B" team, which
will have a regular schedule of
games; Ohio State is already set for
two of the contests.
The varsity schedule includes
games with every team in the Con-
ference, featuring home-and-home
contests with Northwestern, Min-
nesota, Purdue, and Ohio State,
while single games will be played
against Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, and
Wisconsin. The regular home-and-
home games with Michigan State,
are scheduled, while another inter-
esting home non-Conference tussle
will be held with Stanford Uni-
For the first practice session,
Cowles wishes that all guard and
center candidates report at 3:30 p.m.
Wednesday, and forward prospects
check in at 4:30. All candidates are
requested to bring their own equip-
ment, as regular uniforms will not
be issued until after the first squad

T-AT dial tone is mighty important. It means that the switching equipment

you hear it, you'll get a wrong number or no number at all.
Right now there are times when the dial tone is delayed. That's because
central office facilities are serving more telephones and handling more calls
than ever before .. . even more than during the busiest war years. And mate-
