Initial Sailing
Meet Draws
Five Schools
Saturday and Sunday, October
4 and 5 mark the dates of the
Michigan Sailing Club's first fall
meet, on the waters of Whitmore
Lake.
Besides Michigan, five schools
will participate. Denison, North-
western, Michigan State and
Youngstown will be joined by
Bradley University of Ohio in the
Club's Association Meet. All of
the schools except Bradley took
part in the spring meets spon-
sored by the Sailing Club.
Notre Dame is expected to send
an observer, but will not send a
boat to participate. The events
will begin on Saturday afternoon
and will be concluded on Sunday
morning, with the greater number
of the events taking place on Sun-
day.

'M' Rifle Team
To Hold First
MeetingToday
Members of the University of
Michigan rifle team and all small
bore riflemen interested in trying
for a position are urged to attend
the season's initial meeting 7:15
p.m. tonight at the ROTC rifle
range.
George Meyer, top marksman of
last year's squad, reported that
>ans will be drawn up for firing
_ainst both Big Nine and inter-
-.ct onal schools. Since six mem-
bers graduated from the first fif-
teen-man team, those openings,
in addition to quite a few on the
second team, have to be filled.
Any undergrad, either ROTC or
civilian, is eligible to compete, and
silver bullets will be awarded to
the leading five scorers at the end
of the year.

In Wild Fifth Frame
(Continued from Page 1)
poise after Joe DiMaggio
scratched the Yankees' first hit
off him to open the fifth, the con-
test might have gone down as a
near-classic. But the tall young-
ster from Mt. Vernon, N. Y., had
it bad, and there was so saving
him.
DiMag's hit was a deep
grounder between third and
short, which Pee Wee Reese of

the Brooks hauled down but
couldn't throw in time for a
close play. With that, Branca
took off. He tossed four
straight balls to George Mc-
Quinn, none of them even close.
His fifth pitch nearly beaned
Billy Johnson, the Yank third-
sacker saving himself only by
taking the ball on his arm.
With the bases reeking with
Yankees, Big Johnny Lindell,
Yank leftfielder, lined a hard
double down the leftfield line-his
club's first solid smash of the
game-to bring DiMaggio and Mc-
Quinn across. When Branca fol-
lowed with another walk to Riz-
zuto it looked like his departure
was indicated, but Shotton decid-
ed after some minutes of hesita-
tion to give the kid one more
chance.
Bobby Brown, reserve Yankee
infielder, went in to hit for
Shea, who up to that point had
limited the Dodgers to two hits
and a single run, the latter the
direct result of some fancy base
running by Jackie Robinson, the
Negro first-baseman, in the
opening frame.
Branca reared back and sent
two balls past Brown, and that
was all for him. Hank Behrman,
another righthander, took over.
He managed to get one strike
across, but then issued a pass,
forcing in Johnson with the
Yanks' third tally.
George Stirnweiss hit into a
force play, Robinson to Bruce
Edwards, the Dodger catcher,
for the first out of the inning.
Tommy Henrich, Yank right-
fielder, followed with a celan
sir-le into left center on which
Rizzuto and Brown easily scored
with what proved to be the win-
ning runs. Yogi Berra and Di-
Maggio skied out to end the
depressing exhibition, and after
that the winners got only one
more man on base.
After the game, Shotton said he
would not announce his pitcher
for the second game until tomor-
row and will follow that plan
throughout the series. Little Vic
Lombardi, who has won 12 and
lost 11, is the logical choice for
the important job of trying to get
even.

PITCHER FRANK SHEA and CATCHER YOGI BERRA who
formed the New York Yankees' starting battery against the
Brooklyn Dodgers in the first game of the World Series. Although
Shea was forced to retire in the fifth inning because of a sore arm,
he received credit for the Yankee 5-3 win.

COLUMBUS, O., Sept. 30-(_)-
Ohio State Coach Wesley Fesler
announced today that Jerry Krall,
junior halfback from Toledo who
spearheaded the Buck attack in
1945, was definitely out of the
football picture for the remainder
of this season.
Krall suffered an injured knee
in last year's Minnesota game,
and underwent an operation dur-
ing the summer, but Fesler said
the knee was still weak and that
he would. not use the Toledo youth
this season.
MADISON, Wis., Sept. 30-(_)-
The University of Wisconsin var-
sity football team split its time
between an offensive scrimmage
against a freshman squad and a
drill on pass defense today.
Halfback Wally Dreyer tossed
a pass to quarterback Jack Wink
for a 90-yard touchdown play and
then followed up by plunging
off tackle from the eight for a
second tally as the Badgers made
ready for their second Big Nine
Conference game against Indiana
at Bloomington, Ind., Saturday.
