Weatherman
Foresees Cool
Series Opener
BOSTON-(IP)-Rainy, windy
and cool weather for today's first
game of the World Series was
forecast last night by the Weath-
er Bureau.
A special Series bulletin on
weather prospects, said:
Temperatures throughout
Wednesday will remain in the
lower or middle 50's and winds
will be fresh to strong north-
easterly 20 or 30 miles per hour.
"The present outlook for
Thursday is for clearing skies
and continued cool."
Baseball Commissioner A. B.
"Happy" Chandler is the man
who must decide whether a game
will be postponed in the event of
bad weather.
Movies Chase Lou
HOLLYWOOD - ()-The mov-
ies offered Lou Boudreau a job
yesterday in the best Hollywood
tradition.
Universal - International said
they'd like Boudreau for a new
Bill Bendix picture (The Life
of Riley). Irving Brecher, the di-
rector, was reported en route to
Boston to make the offer dur-
ing the World Series.
But to give it the customary
Hollywood twist, the Cleveland In-
dians' manager, who plays a lot of
baseball-ask the Red Sox-would
be cast as a rabid fan, not a
player. And a Brooklyn fan, at
that.

Indians Given Nod
BOSTON-(I)-Thirty out of 44
baseball writers at Braves Field
picked the Cleveland Indians yes-
terday to beat the Boston Braves
in the World Series which gets
under way here tomorrow.
The writers were polled by the
Associated Press while the Braves
worked out for an hour and a half
in the morning and during the
final afternoon tuneup for the
American League champions.
Only one writer, Walter (Red)
Smith of the New York Herald
Tribune, picked the Indians in
seven games.

Lou Boudreau, Cleveland's
matchless young player-manager,
is in position to field his strongest
team right down the line. Walt
Judnich, a lefthanded batter, will
be in rightfield tomorrow against
Sain. Allie Clark will start there
when Warren Spahn, a southpaw,
goes for the Braves-probably in
the second game on Thursday.
AGAINST FELLER, Southworth
named a starting outfield of
Tommy Holmes in right, Mike Mc-

only five days ago as replacement

Satchel Paige, ancient Negro
pitcher with Cleveland, has seen
little action lately and is not like-
ly to appear in the present series,
barring possibly a small relief
stint.
As the Indians did not get to do
their victory celebrating until last
night, several looked as though
they had been dragged through
small knotholes.

ALL MEMBERS of the Cleve-

For

Purdue

With Saturday's game against
Purdue looming high on the hori-
zon, Wolverine gridders got down
to work yesterday, running
through offensive and defensive
scrimmages.
Fundamentals also came in for
their share of the day's work,
with primary emphasis on defen-
sive assignments. Pass defense
was stressed by Michigan coach
Bennie Oosterbaan as advance
notices told of the passing prowess
of the Boilermaker's ace quarter-
back Bob DeMoss.
ALTHOUGH DEMOSS failed to
complete a pass last week against
Northwestern, he has been com-
pared with Norm Van Brocklin in
chucking ability. It will be the
primary job of the Wolverine sec-
ondary to stop the accurate heaves
of DeMoss.
On the offensive side, the Wol-
verines operated both in the air
and via the ground route against
the JV squad. Alternately using
Church Ortmann, Wally Teninga
slot, the Maize and Blue gridders

connected through the air on nu-
merous occasions for long gains,

WHILE STRESS< was put on
the passing aspect of the Wol-
verine attack, the ground game
came in for its share of work.

Commenting on the Mich-
igan-Purdue game next Satur-
day, "Fritz" Crisler said yester-
day before a meeting of the Na-
tional Football Writers' Asso-
ciation:
"Our running is lousy. Our
passing is horrible. Our tack-
ling is terrible. And our block-
ing stinks. But I think we'll
win."
Koceski and Ortmann broke
through for frequent gains.
Bad tidings for the Wolverines
came when word that Gene Derri-
cotte, ace Michigan halfback and
defensive man, would be out of
action against the Boilermakers.

As Strong Foe
DETROIT- (AP)-"Notre Dame
would like to win the game against
Michigan State Saturday by one
point," according to Frank Leahy,
the Irish football coach and ath-
letic director.
That was the sentiment Ed
(Moose) Krause, Notre Dame's as-
sistant athletic director, relayed
All candidates for either the
freshman or varsity wrestling
teams are requested to report
to Captain Bob Betziz at 4:00
p.m. today on the wrestling

from his boss yesterday to the
Michigan chapter of the National
Football Writers Association in
weekly meeting here..
Krause, in serious mein, termed
the Michigan State line "the most
aggressive chargers" seen by Irish
scouts in two years.
