Ohio State Leads Big. Nine Bloc in Effort
To Meet Pacific Coast Champion INew Year's Day
CHICAGO, Oct. 8--()-The West-
ern Conference today was polling its
nine members on a proposal to com-
pete in the Rose Bowl classic for the
first time in 26-years.
Commissioner Kenneth L. (Tug)
Wilson disclosed the vote already was
underway "to end once and for all"
discussions on Big Nine participa-
tion in the post-season feature
against the Pacific Coast Confer-
ence champion on New Year's Day.
It was learned unofficially that
Illinois already has rejected the pro-
posal which calls for a five-year con-
tract, but only three successive ap-
pearances by a Big Nine represen-
tative, leaving the door open to ma-
Burg Out of Lineup for
Important Grid Clash
ANN ARBOR, Mich., Oct. 8-OP)-
While the University of Michigan
probably will be without guard
George Burg for its all-important
football clash with Army here, Sat-
urday, the Wolverines today expect-
ed to have two linemen and a back
available after two-week layoffs with

jor independents to compete in 1950
In the still young season, two Big
Nine entries have scored decisive vic-
tories over Pacific Coast conten-
28-7, and Ohio State last Saturday
blanking Southern California, 21-0.
Ohio Leads Bloc
Whether the poll, results of which
may be announced at a special con-
ference meeting soon, will meet the
unsuccessful fate of similar past pro-
posals was conjectural.
Led principally by Ohio State
which made the last Conference Rose
Bowl visit in 1921 and took a 2-0
trimming from California, a Big Nine
bloc has made several efforts to get
back into the Rose Bowl. Most recent
was in 1944' when Ohio State's Con-
ference champions were denied the
trip by the Conference.
Michigan Laces Stanford
Only other Big 10 (Before Chica-
go's withdrawal) appearance in the
Rose Bowl was that by the late
Fielding Yost's Michigan team
which drubbed Stanford 49-0 in the
classic's 1902 inaugural.
Wilson's announcement, forced
prematurely by the leak of Illinois'
action, said only that if a favorable
vote was indicated, "an approach
will be made to representatives of the
Pacific Coast Conference, who in
past years have indicated their de-
sire to enter such an arrangement
with the Western Conference."
It was learned reliably, though,
that the proposal con rained eight
points some of which possibly might
sour the Pacific Coast officials.
For instance, the Western Confer-
ence proposes that each Conference
designate its representative team for
the Rose Bowl meeting, inferring
that possibly the official champion
might not go, or want to bo. Another
point states that no Big Nine school
may be forced to compete and os-
tensibly Illinois, for one, may spurn
any possible nomination.
Natre Dame May Play
Still a third restriction concerning
the Big Nine is that the same team
cannot appear in the Rose Bowl
more than once in three years.
Other points include a mutually
satisfactory "limited" post-season
practice period, sharing of expenses
and receipts and complete supervi-
sion over the five-year arrangement
by the two conferences.
Notre Dame, following Big Nine
standards, has officially frowned
upon post-season play, the way now
is open for the Irish to step into the
Rose Bowl after the proposed three-
year conference series, possibly ap-
pearing in 1950 or 1951.

BOSTON, Oct. 8-(/P)-This was
moving day in the World Series, and
the Red Sox w e r e glad to
put St. Louis behind them and return
to the friendly confines of their own
Fenway Park, where the American
League champs were virtually un-
beatable during the regular season.
"We won 61 at home and lost only
16," manager Joe Cronin recalled op-
timistically today. "Maybe we can
nake it 64 and 16 the next three
Cards Still Hot
What the Sox pilot had in mind
looked like a very large order for his
young men, even in ienway Park.
The St. Louis Cardinals as of yes-
terday were a hot and rolling ball
club, and any team that licks them
three straight in thier present mood
will have to be good.
As the big play-off moved into its
second phase with the two teams
deadlocked at a victory apiece, the
highly touted Bostons had yet shown
nothing to justify any long odds in
their favor. They just managed to
scrape through in the opener at St.
Louis, thanks to a bad bounce on a
ground ball in the ninth inning, and
the four-hit shutdown that Harry
Brecheen plastered on them yesterday
was little short of humiliating.
Dickson To Pitch
Tomorrow the American League
clcuters, having failed to generate
any real power against a pair of Car-
dinal southpaws, will get to look at
a very sharp young right hander in
Murry Dickson, the same who pitched
such a whale of a game in last week's
play-off against Brooklyn. So far
the rSox have looked bad against
curve balls, and Dickson has a million
of them, more or less.
Cronin will bank on Dave (Boo)
Ferriss, the big second-year tosser
who delivered 25 victories this season,
to cool off the Red Birds and get his
own somewhat ponderous machine
rolling in its accustomed manner,
Clubs Well Matched
Extremely few of those who wit-
nessed the first two games could ex-
pect the series to wind up here. The
teams looked too evenly matched in
good pitching for the play-off to go
less than six games, and many were
predicting that St. Louis fans would
sit in on a final stemwinder of a
seventh contest sometime before snow
flies in that section.
Both clubs got, superb hurling at
St. Louis, the Cards from Howie Pol-
lett and Brecheen, and the Sox from
Tex Mughson and Earl Johnson in
the opener, and from Mickey Harris
and Joe Dobson yesterday. Both Pol-
let and Brecheen are certain to come
back before the session ends.
Teams Tied in Hits
The teams were tied in total hits
for the two games, at 13 apiece, but
actually the stickwork of the Car-
dinals had been much the more im-
pressive up to this point. Included
in their collection were four doubles
and a triple, and they had pounded
all their five runs across with good,
The Sox, noted for their long-dis-
tance work, had made only one ex-
tra-baser, the home run by Rudy
York that broke up the opener in the
10th inning, and several of their sin-
gles had resulted from infield drib-
blers that might have been handled
with a bit of luck.
Ted Williams, most feared of the
Sox sluggers had punched only one
single-which almost was caught-in
nine tries, and he was having a very
miserable time for himself. The spe-
cial defense rigged up against him
by manager Eddie Dyer of the Cards
appeared to be getting on the Great
Man's nerves. He looked as though
he might explode like a cannon
cracker at any moment.
Cronin expects Fenway Park's
short and inviting left field wall to
act as a powerful tonic on his right-
hand hitters, Bobby Doerr, Dom Di-
Maggio, Pinky Higgins and York.
Doerr, who always finds the short
wall particularly exhilarating, will be
moved up to the fifth spot in the Sox
batting order, ahead of York. Wally
Moses, a left-hand battr, will succeed
Tom McBride in rightfield for the
games in Boston.
BOSTON, Oct. 8--(IP)-Everything
was ready tonight for Boston's first
World Series in 28 years but the
weather-and the outlook was bad.
As the Red Sox and Cardinals
wheeled into town for their third
championship engagement they were
greeted by this forecast: "Wednesday

reportedly were asking $75 to $100

formed outside Fenway Park to get

On Bowl Issue

Michigan's attitude toward any pos-
sible agreement between the Big Nine

stage a meeting of their football
champions in the Rose Bowl Janu-

A member of the Michigan coach-
ing staff, however, said that such a
move would be against long-estab-
lished Wetsern Conference tradition.
A game that late in the year, he
explained, would require an addi-
tional five to six weeks of hard
workouts and regular daily practice
sessions. The hours spent down at
Ferry Field every day during the
regular season puts a great hardship
on the men as it is, requiring inten-
sive effort to keep up with their
