Michigan's Jayvee squad will in-
augurate its '47 campaign in a
game with an up-and-coming
Grand Rapids Junior College team
this morning at 10:00 a.m. on the
Ferry Field gridiron.
Though defeated in her initial
start by Hope College in a 14-7
contest, Grand Rapids is consid-
ered a formidable opponent for
the untried Wolverine team. A
heavy forward wall is expected to
cause the Jayvee line plenty of
rugged trouble. Kisielewski and
Olman are slated for starting
posts in JC's line, with Bergstrom
and Klap holding down the tackle
positions. Huttman and Miller
have been named for the guard
positions and Wood will start the
game in the center slot. The
backfield quartet finds Lindguist
in the quarter-back spot, Helder
and Brown holding the half-back
Grid Picks
By AUSTIN BEALMEAR
BROOKLYN, Oct. 3-()P)-Hav-
ing picked New York to win the
World Series in four straight, we
plunge into another football fore-
cast with some misgivings as the
Yankees and Dodgers come to
grips once more in that peaceful
little valley known as Ebbets
Field :
Notre Dame vs. Pittsburgh -
Can the Dodgers get that run
back? They've got two men on
base. Can the Irish go through
another season undefeated?
They've got the material. The side
is retired without a score. Same
for the Panthers. A confident bal-
lot for Notre Dame.
Stanford vs. Michigan - There'
goes Rizzuto. Safe at second. Who
said the Dodgers had the edge on
base sunning? Those Michigan
backs are pretty good runners,
too. If Stanford doesn't look
sharper than it did against Idaho,
the Wolverines can trot home. One
big vote for Michigan.
UCLA vs. Northwestern-Rob-
inson won the race to the bag to
rob Berra of a hit. That boy can
run. If he were playing with
UCLA again he'd be on the win.
ning side tomorroy. A hatful of
votes for UCLA.
Army vs. Colorado-DiMaggio is
trying to score on Edwards' over-
throw of first. He's out at home,
by a mile. The Cadets are at home
and should squeeze through. Per-
haps close, but the guess :s Army.

posts, and Plows operating fom
the fullback position.
Coach Gib Holgate, in charge of
the B team during Coach Ceith-
aml's absence, plans to start Dave
Oeming and John Maturo at the
ends. John Anderson and Al
Fitch have been named the de-
fensive tackles for the game with
Dick Brown and Dick Strauss
taking over when the team is on
defense. Don Nichols will hold
downthe center roleon offense
with John Padjen taking over on
defense.
Norm Jackson will work from
the quarter-back spot on offense
with Hugh Mack playing quarter-
back on defense. Jim Morrsih and
All Noble will execute their duties
fron the tail-back positions when
the team is on offense with Prent
Ryan and Don Jones assuming
the defensive role. Irv Small
completes the backfield playing
fullback both on offense and de-
fense.
Though such stalwarts as
Kampe, Heneveld, and Holloway
have been lost to the varsity, the
Jayvee squad is strong. Strong
replacements have flled the gaps
and those daily scrimmages with
the varsity have sharpened the
Wolverine claws for the opening
game.

free passes. In all, he issued a
record-breaking total of 10 walks,
during the game, and the last two
finally ruined him.
For the second straight game,
Hugh Casey, portly Dodger relief
pitcher, gained credit for the vic-
tory which deadlocked the play-
off at two wins each. He threw
exactly one pitch, with the bases
full of Yankees and one out in
the ninth inning. Henrich
whacked it back at him, and Casey
tossed to Catcher Bruce Edwards
to start a double play.
Lavagetto, reserve third-sacker
for the Dodgers, was given a wild
welcome by his teammates as he
trotted back across the diamond
after watching Al Gionfriddo and
Eddie Miksis, both pinch-runners,
scoot across the plat far ahead
of Henrich's throw-in. Five or six
of them all tried to hug him at
once, and when several wild-eyed
Dodger fans tried to get in on
the celebration the park police
finally had to break it up and
escort Cookie to the dugout.
Bevens, after watching Lava-
getto's blast hit the wall, turned
dejectedly and trudged off the
field, a forlorn figure. He owned
the distinction of having pitched
more hitless innings than any man
ever before n a World Series, but
that was small recompense for the
bauble which escaped his grasp.
Red Ruffing of the Yanks had a
no-hitter going for seven and two-
thirds frames against the Card-
inals in the first game of the '42
series before the Cards scalped
him.

EBBETS FIELD, BROOKLYN,
Oct. 3-(P)--Hal Gregg was ex-
plaining in a sad, professional sort
of way what it was that Bill Bev-
ens had.
"His curve ball breaks like a
slider," he was saying as he
shaved. "He keeps it outside and
he keeps his fast ball inside, way
inside."
Harry Taylor, who put the
Dodgers in quite a spot in the first1
inning, lay face down on a bench.
The loudspeaker said Cookie
Lavagetto was going to bat for
Eddie Stanky.
Fans Like It
"Yeah, I guess that's all right,"
someone said.
Then a roar started, growing in
volume, reaching an ear-splitting
crescendo.
The words, "Tying run ... win-
ning run" came out of it. The
door burst open and players start-
ed running in, screaming and
cheering.
Cookie Lavagetto came pushing
and shoving along, a wide, intense
smile on his face, his black hair
falling down on his forehead.
Men threw their arms around
him and kissed him. He couldn't
say anything. All he could do was
grin the widest and most com-
plete of all grins.
He was hoistea on Branca's
shoulders with everyone helping.
They bounced him up and down.
Manager Burt Shotton kissed him.
"It was a high fast one, and I
think it was over the plate, but
I'm not sure," he said.
Telephones Wife
He managed to get to the tele-
phone and call his wife in Cali-
fornia. She gave birth to their
first child last week, a son, Harry
Michael Lavagetto, Jr.
"I think it was last Thursday or
Friday he was born." He wasn't
sure of that, either.
He needed a shave, but there
was no time for that. He was
dragged into the showers amid
more singing and shouting. ,

EBBETS FIELD, BROOKLYN,
Oct. 3-(P)-Floyd Bevens' eyes
were vacant of any expression as
he fumbled along in changing
from his uniform to street attire
in the Yankee dressing room after
his defeat in the fourth game of
the World Series today.
The big right hander, who was
one out away from tossing the
first no-hitter in World Series an-
nals, groped for words as report-
ers, feeling his remorse, slowly,
asked questions.
Asked what kind of aball
Cookie Lavagetto of the Dodgers
hit for his game winning double
in the ninth, Bevens replied: "A
high fast ball, a little on the
outside."
Manager Bucky Harris was cor-
nered, and after announcing that
"Frank Shea will face the Dodg-
ers tomorrow," he said, "No I
didn't talk to the boys, neither did
MacPhail. I just wanted them to
cool off."
Bevens and Shea had their
heads together in a locker and it
was hard to tell at first glance
which had pitched the game
from their sad appearance.
Joe DiMaggio, who hurt his an-
kle catching a fly in the fourth,
was stretched out on a table, hav-
ing his left ankle attended. Asked
how it felt, DiMaggio said "It
hurts."

Iowa Battles
Illini To Stay
In Title Race
A "this is it" game for both
teams, so important that neither
Iowa or Illinois can afford to
lose, will unfold in Iowa stadium
Saturday afternoon before a
sell-out crowd of some 52,500
spectators.
Illinois, the 1946 conference
champion and the Jan. 1, 1947
Rose Bowl titlist, plays a return
engagement with the Hawkeyes
just eleven months after squeak-
ing through a 7-0 win on the
same gridiron.
It's the conference opener for
the old-time rivals, who have
been playing off and on since
1899. As Illinois seeks its sixth
straight win in the series, the
universities arrive at their 28th
game Saturday.
For Iowa the, game offers a
chance to atone for the 22-7 loss
to UCLA, the Illinois victim in the
Rose Bowl. Never before has a
team faced Rose Bowl contestants
on successive weekends.
Illinois has a 16 to 9 lead in the
series, with two tie gomes. The'
Illini have taken five straight
games, Iowa's last win being in
1941 at Champaign.
Badgers Meet
IU in Feature
Indiana's Fightin' Hoosiers, vic-
torious by a 17-0 count over Ne-
braska in their opener at Lincoln
last Saturday, face their first Big]
Nine test Saturday against Wis-
consin's high-scoring Badgers in
a homecoming game in Memorial
Stadium.
task will be stopping the high-
powered Badger offense that lastl
week enabled Coach Harry Stuhl-
dreher's eleven to roll up 32 points
to Purdue's 14. Wisconsin's di-
versified attack will give the
Crimson's line-backing its first
stern test and will further test a
pass defense that broke down tem-
porarily against Cornhusker aer-
ials.

THE WRIGHT WAY:
1902 Was Never Like This;
Indians Speed East in Plane

The eastward excursion made
by Stanford from Palo Alto to
Chicago to Ann Arbor didn't con-
sume much time, thanks to those
modern airliners.
But the Wright brothers were
still toying around with their
aerial contraption when the fab-
ulous 1901 Wolverine eleven was
invited to play against Stan-
ford in the first Rose Bowl on
New Year's Day, 1902.
Purdue Faces
OSU Today
Buckeyes Eye First
Conference Victory
Ohio State University's football
team, successful in its first start
last week against Missouri, will
open its Western Conference
schedule Saturday with the Pur-
due Boilermakers at Lafayette.
Opening the Boilermakers' at-
tractive five-gamehome schedule,
the first appearance in history of
an Ohio State squad in the Ross-
Ade stadium is expected to attract
a near-capacity crowd.
Having emerged from the 13-7
triumph last week without seri-
ous injury to his players, Coach
Wesley E. Fesler plans to start the
same lineup against Purdue. In
addition, the Bucks will have
Halfback Bob Brugge available. ,
In Joe Whisler and Ollie Cline,
who are battling each other for
the Buckeye fullback post, Ohio
IState can boast the two leading
Western Conference touchdown
scorers for the past two seasons.
Cline, who returned to the
Buckeye campus this fall after a
stint in the army, tied for the
Conference 1945 scoring crown
with Wisconsin's Don Kindt and
Purdue's Bill Canfield with 36
points on six touchdowns.

So the late Fielding H. Yost and
his 14-man Michigan squad left
the Ann Arbor railroad station
one wintry December day, all set
for a 16 day overland route out to
the West Coast.
Actually, the trip only took
eight days, because the . squad
made many stops to practice, take
in some sight-seeing, eat oranges,
and partake in society dashes.
The 49-0 Wolverine triumph
on January 1, 1902 was consid-
ered as a smashing personal
victory for Coach Yost, who had
brought StanfordatheePacific
Coast title the year before. A
rule barring non- alumni
coaches had sent Yost eastward
to Ann Arbor in 1901.
The fact that only 11 Wolver-
ines saw action against Stanford
was also sufficient testimony to
greatness of Keene Fitzpatrick,
the well-known trainer. He kept
the boys in tip-top shape for four
playing months prior to the Rose
Bowl game.
Only one player was injured
during the season; the casualty
occurred on a Saturday, and the
player reported in full stride at
the following Monday's practice.
In those days, the turn-outs
at spring practice weren't even
a quarter as large as the ones
we see nowadays. But in ratio
to the number of students at-
tending a university at that
time, the turnouts were impres-
sive.
Crisler's brand of football is
more scientific than the type of
rushing bone-crushing brand
exhibited at the turn of the
century. The intricacies of the
forward pass has always figured
prominently in Crisler's grid
plans.
It is easy to see that King Foot-
ball has made tremendous strides
during the 46-year lapse of pig-
skin hostilities between Michigan
and Stanford.
