Advance Sale
Of Grid Tickets
Pleases Baker
Applications Ireble
Last Season's Mark
If the smile on Mr. Andrew Baker's
face can be used as an indication of
the advance football ticket sales, it is
easy to see that each contest is well
on its way to being a sell-out.
Baker, who is in charge of athletic
tickets, reported that orders for sea-
son pasteboards are three times as
great as those of last season. The
gridiron enthusiasts have waited a
long time to see the pre-war calibre
of football again, and this fall they
expect to find it,
The Maize and Blue aggregation
encounters a rugged nine game sched-
ule with seven contests slated for the
Michigan Stadium. Although the
seating capacity is one of the larg-
est in the country, 85,783 spectators,
the stadium staff shouldn't encounter
much difficulty in filling the bowl up
to the brim.
Traveling restrictions have been
lifted, while the colorand hustle ex-
hibited at former Wolverine battles
will once more return to the Ann Ar-
bor scene. At least five contests, In-
diana, Iowa, Northwestern, Illinois
and Michigan State can look forward
to a spirited multitude for over 50,000
applications for these games have
been handled already by Baker's as-
sistants. There is, however, plenty
of space in the end zone for those
still desiring tickets.
Servo Turns Over
Welterweigh t Titl e
NEW YORK, Sept. 25-(')--Baby-
faced Marty Servo, who couldn't get
the New York State Athletic Com-
mission to believe his nose was badly
injured, was forced today to abdicate
his world welterweight championship
and retire from the ring because of
the injury..
Immediately, the National Boxing
Association, which refused to go a-
long with the New York Commission
in vacating the New York half of the
title when Marty pleaded for his
aching proboscis a few weeks ago,
announced it would sanction a bout
between the stringbean swatter, Ray
Rlobinson, and former lightweight
champion Beau Jack for the crown.
All men who have been on pre-
vious track squads and all those
who are interested in trying out
forthe 1946 squad are requested
to report at 5 p.m. today at Yost
Field House for an important
meeting.

.ANN ARBOR, Mich,~ Sept. 25--(A')
-Indiana coach Bo McMiliin's grid-
ders will begin their trip to Ann Ar-
bor today in a caravan of 16 auto-
mobiles which will stop at Fort
Wayne, Ind., Thursday night and ar-
rive at Jackson Mich., for a short
workout Friday afternoon. The 36
man squad will arrive here shortly be-
fore game time Saturday.
Michigan State
EAST LANSING, Sept. 25 -(P)-
"We're not worrying about Wayne but
we're also not passing them off light-
ly."
That .was head Coach Charles
Bachman's answer yesterday when
asked if he and his Michigan State
College eleven feared Saturday's sea-
so nopener here against the Tartars.
The Spartan mentor said that al-
though State has beaten Wayne in
eight previous contests, the Detroit-
ers have an outside chance of upset-
ting the applecart this year.

Notre Dame
NOTRE DAME, Ind., Sept. 25 --(P)'
- Quarterback Johnny Lujack of
Connellsville, Pa., and right tackle
Ziggy Czarobski of Chicago will be
co-captains of the Notre Dame team
in its opening game Saturday against
Illinoiis at Champaign.
Lujack and Czarobski were chosen
at a squad election last night, Coach
FrankrLeahy announced today.
Czarobski, back at Notre Dame
after three years in the navy, was the
regular right tackle of the 1943 Irish
team.
This is the second year of Notre
Dame competition for Lujack who
was discharged from the navy in June
as an ensign after three years of serv-
ice. In 1943 Lujack succeeded An-
gelo Bertelli as quarterback for the
Irish just before the Army game.
Against Army he completed eight of
15 passes, two for touchdowns, as
Notre Dame won, 26 to 0.

DICK WAKEFIELD
Wakl efie.ld W i.l
Return to Books
Dick Wakefield, hard-hitting De-
troit Tiger outfielder, is returning to
Michigan this semester to finish the
studies he dropped so suddenly in
1941 when offered a $50,000 bonus to
sign with the Detroit club.
Wakefield played for the Wol-
verines in the spring of 1941, bat-
ting .371 and sparking the Michi-
gan nine to the Western Conference
championship. During the follow-
ing summer, he divided his time
between the Tigers and Winston-
Salem of the Piedmont League, a
Detroit farm club.
The ex-Wolverine star graduated
to a permanent berth on the Tigers
in 1943 after batting .345 with Beau-
mont of the Texas league in the pre-
ceding season. Wakefield kept his
average considerably above .300 in
his two years with the major league
nine, with .316 and .355 marks in
1943 and 1944, respectively.
During his three years of profes-
sional ball, from the time he left
Michigan until he entered in the
Navy in 1944, Wakefield compiled
an overall average of .326. Return-
ing to the Tigers this year, his av-
erage was under .300 for the first
time since 1941.
Wakefield had completed his soph-
omore year at the University when he
left four years ago and now has 85
hours credit. He is majoring in eco-
nomics.
Due to his professional standing,
unfortunately, Wakefield will not be
eligible to continue where he left off
with the Michigan squad in 1941, his
standing at the University being
purely academic.

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 25-{R)-Bucky
Walters, sore-armed Cincinnati vet-
eran who hadn't won a game since
he beat St. Louis Aug. 17, shut out
the League-leading Cardinals to-
night, 6-0 on seven hits, leaving the
Red Birds one full game ahead of
Brooklyn.
Presented with a golden oportun-
ity to drape the Dodgers over the
rcpes after their aftern;oon loss to
the Phillies, the Cardinals blew their
chance before the mystifying slants
of the 36-year-old right hander.
Waters Pleases
Walters gave Manager Bill Mc-
Kechnies"retiring" as Cincy skipper
after the game, a neatly-wrapped go-
ing away present that was a serious
jolt to budding St. Louis World Ser-
ies plans.
The Reds hopped on starter Mur-
ry Dickson for three runs in the
fourth inning and picked up three
more unneeded scores in the ninth
off reliefers Alpha Brazle and Teddy
Wilks in their final Sportsman's
Park appearance of the season. Al-
though they bowed eight times in 22
season meetings, Cincinnati won six
of 11 in the St. Louis park.
Each Have Three Left
With the Dodgers and Cards each
having only three games to play, the
National League race was assured of
going right down to Saturday for de-
cision and there was a strong proba-
bility that the winner would not be
known until Sunday night, the final
day of the season.
While the Brooks are playing off a
postponed game with Philadelphia at
Ebbets Field tomorrow~ the Cards
will be idle. They open a final three-
game series with Chicago here Fri-
day night, an open date in the Dodg-
er schedule..
Walters Shows Mastery
The wily Walters, veteran of two
Cincinnati pennant-winning clubs,
was in charge of the St. Louis hit-
ters all night although he did allow
men on base in all but the second,
third and fifth innings.
What started out like a Card hit-
ting party when Red Schoendienst
doubled on the first pitch, turned out
to be a 10th win in a romp for Bucky,
the 190th of his career.

BROOKLYN, Sept. 25-The Brook-
lyn Dodgers were all but eliminated

from the torrid National League pen-
nant race today when, cracking un-
der the terrific strain, they blew up in
a night-marish ninth inning against
the Philadelphia Phillies who scored
five runs to win 11-9 before 22,245
dumbstruck fans.
The loss set the Dodgers back a
game and a half behind the St. Louis
Cardinals.
Durocher Tries Eight Pitchers
In going down to defeat, the Dodg-
ers used eight pitchers, a recor dfor
the National League, and tying the
American League standard made by
Washington in 1913.
In as weird a game as played in
Ebbets' Field all year, and which con-
sumed three hours and 37 minutes,
the Dodgers had to come from be-
hind with three runs in the fourth
and three more inthe fifth to over-
come a 5-1 Philly lead. Oscar Judd
accounted for the first Philly run
with an inside-the-park home run.

The Dodgers grabbed another run
in the seventh and matched Philadel-
phia's run in the eighth to go into the
ninth leading 9-6 and apparently as-
sured of victory.
After walking pinch hittei John-
ny O'Neil to start the ninth, Taylor,
the Dodgers' fifth hurler, struck out
Skeeter Newsome but yielded a single
to Charlie Gilbert, ex-Dodger, and
gave way to Lombardi. Northey greet-
ed the little lefthander with a single
to right center scoring both runners,
and when Dixie Walker let the ball
get away from him Northey went to
second.
After walking Johnny Wyrostek,
Lombardi walked himself to the
showers but Herring his successor,
was no better. He pitched the game-
tying single to Jim Tabor and passed
Frank McCormick to fill the bases.
Manager Leo Durocher waved Kirbe
Higbe his ace In and Dee Moore, an-
other former Dodger, flied deep to
Pete Reiser, Wyrostek scoring the
winning run after the catch.

DETROIT, Sept. 25-(/P)-Collect-
ing 15 hits off rookie Righthander
Art Houtteman, the St. Louis Browns
snapped a Detroit winning streak at
10 games today by stopping the Ti-
gers 8 to 7.
Hank Greenberg's 42nd homer,
which came with a mate on base in
the fifth put the Detroit Tiger slug-
ger two runs in front of Ted Wil-
liams for the American League runs-
batted-in chamgpionship.
Wiliams went hitless in four trips
against the New York Yankees yes-
terday and' failed to send a tally

across the plate. Greenberg's two-run
circuit clout raised his runs-batted-
in total to 123 as compared to Wil-
liams' 121.

It's a grand time for travel and sightseeing.
Mother Nature's brilliant fall show is on dis-
play. Trees are dressed in fiery reds and golds.
Hills and valleys are tinted in vibrant rusts
and browns. The countryside is a bright crazy
quilt of warm, glowing color.
The best way to enjoy a "close-up" view of
this autumn spectacle is through the large pic-
ture frame windows of a Greyhound bus ...
windows especially designed for greater look-
ing pleasure. And Greyhound's deep cushioned,
reclining seats add enjoyment to every mile.
Take your autumn trip now! Seats are more
plentiful. Departures are frequent. Fares are
still at their low pre-war level. - -
