BRAVES FIELD, Boston-(MP-
The underdog Boston Braves be-
hind Johnny Sam won the first
game of the World Series today by
beating the Cleveland Indians and
their ace Bob Feller, 1 to 0.
Feller pitched a' World Series
classic-a brilliant two-hitter -
but Sain blanked the American
League champions with four safe

TOMMY HOLMES, .Braves'
rightfielder, sent the National
Leaguers out in front in the big
play-off by singling cleanly over
third base in the eighth inning to
score Phil Masi, a pinch runner,
from second. The only other hit
off Cleveland's great fireballer
was a single by Marvin Rickert in
A partisan crowd of 40,135
sent up a roar that must have
raised ripples on the nearby
Charles River when Holmes, a
left-hand batter, crossed up the
Cleveland defense by hacking an
outside pitch to left. Before the
Indians could collect the ball,
Holmes slid into second and an-
other runner, Sibbi Sisti,
That was the only thing ap-
proaching a score in the tingling
contest. Six Indians reached base
on Sain, two of them on errors by
third baseman Bob Elliott. Five
of them reached second, but not a
one spiked third as the tall, tough
righthander bore down to strike
out six men.
Feller, a magnificent figure in
defeat, brought on his own down-
fall when he issued his second
walk of the game to catcher Bill
Salkeld to open the fatal eighth.
Masi went in to run for his fel-
low backstop, and reached the
middle bog an a perfect sacrifice
by Mike McCormick. Eddie
Stanky, a dangerous hitter in the
clutches, was purposely passed.
WHEN SAIN LINED viciously
to right for the second out it
looked as though Bullet Bob might
pull through safely. As he started
to itchto Holmes he whirled and
snapped a throw to Manager Lou
Boudreau which very nearly got
Masi as he slid desperately back.
Boudreau, in fact, argued with
Umpire Bill Stewart about it.

Campus Groups Will Aid
Voter Registration Here
Student Legislature, Political Clubs Will
Help Michiganders, Out of State Residents
By RUSS CLANAHAN
Voting registration in Ann Arbor will be going full blast during
the next week as political groups, the Student Legislature, and indi-
vidual students strive to meet the October 13 deadline.
The Student Legislature has announced a plan to set up a station
on campus to register both local, Michigan, and out-state students.
SIMPLEST REGISTRATION will be for married students who
have lived in Michigan at least six months and in Ann Arbor at least
20 days. They are considered legal residents of Ann Arbor, and may
vote in November merely by registering at the City Clerk's office in
the city hall, Fifth and Huron streets. Office hours are 8-12 and 1-5
each weekday, and 8-12 on Saturday.
All out-of-town single students of voting age must vote by
absentee ballot. Michigan residents who are not registered should
send a letter to the city, village, or elections clerk of their home
town at once requesting an application form to register. This
letter must reach the clerk on or before October 13.
When they receive their form, it should be filled out, notarized,
and sent back to the clerk, together with a request for a ballot. The
ballot will be sent in time to vote in November.
*- *. *
STUDENTS WHO ARE registered in their home towns need only
send a request for a ballot to their city clerks. A student living in a
In order to vote in the November election, Michigan residents
must apply immediately to their city clerks giving name, sex, birth
place, marital status, husband's name, husband's birthplace,
marriage date, where last voted, birthdate and Ann Arbor address.
On receipt of this information, city clerks will send a form
that must be filled out and notarized and returned by October 13,
according to John Swets, SL campus action committee chairman.
town under 20,000 is registered if he has voted in an election within the
last two years. If a resident of a larger Michigan town, he must have
voted within the past four years.
Because the election laws of each state vary, the Student
Legislature, the Young Republicans, and the Young Democrats
have laid plans to give information on an individual basis. The
registration deadline is near in most states, however, so it is es-
sential that the voter begin the process immediately.
The Student Legislature will set up information and registration
booth in a campus building Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of
next week. From 1 to 5 p.m. Monday, October 11, a clerk from the
City Clerk's office will be at the booth to register married students.
LEGISLATURE WORKERS will be at the booth at all times to
give out registration applications for Michigan residents, and with
specific information for out-of-state students. Location of the booth
will be announced later.
Registration applications can also be obtained through the
Young Republican Club by contacting Jim Schoener at 104
Cooley House, in the East Quadrangle. Schoener is a notary public,
and can notarize the forms as soon as they are filled out. Outstate
students can get information on individual state election laws by
calling Dale Stoppels at the Lawyers Club.
The Young' Democrats have announced that they will help any
student get his absentee ballot if he will call Harry Albrecht or Harry
Lusgarten at the Lawyers Club (4145) and give their name, address,
and telephone number.
* * *
THE WALLACE Progressives are depending largely on the Stu-
dent Legislature for registering students, and are concentrating on
their campaign to register townspeople. Young Democrats are con-
centrating on reaching all married students on campus, particularly
University Terrace. The Young Republicans plan to go through dor-
mitories and fraternities urging voters to register.

DAMSELS IN DISTRESS:
U Coeds Stuck at Opera
Get Police Escort Home
By HAROLD JACKSON
Six coeds who were 55 minutes
late yesterday morning even
though three police departments
teamed up to rush them from De-
troit to Ann Arbor will have to
wait until next Thursday to learn
But Women's Judiciary Chair-
man Pat Hannagan says they have
a strong case if they can prove
unavoidable transportation diffi-
* * *
A HEROINE named Carmen
caused all the trouble. The coeds
obtained special 1:30 permission to
attend the LaScala Opera produc-
tion in Detroit to see their old
friend and former University stu-
dent, Rose DerDerian who played
the title role.
The six opera lovers were:
Cynthia Hendrian and her sis-
ter Sue, Harriet Falls, Bernice
Calkins, Miriam Cady and Bar-
Don Jose didn't finish killing
Carmen until 11:35 p.m., five min-
utes after the last bus left for
Ann Arbor. The six found them-
selves stranded, and called every-
one they knew in the city but
couldn't find a ride.-
* * *
THEY EVEN APPLIED at a "U
drive it yourself" car garage and
got a stony "No."
Finally in desperation they
called the police at 12:15 a.m. A
bewildered policewoman heard
their story and after considerable
delay, picked them up and headed
out Michigan Avenue.
At Telegraph Road a Wayne
County Sheriff's Patrol car met
the coeds and drove them
through the amazed stares of
many pedestrians all the way to
the Washtenaw County Line.
There two more Sheriff's depu-
ties in a brightly painted car
took up the errand of mercy.
More time was lost on this final
leg of the trip when the officers
had to halt a car careening along
the highway. The deputies would
have hauled in the offenders-if
their car hadn't been full of coeds.
IT WAS 2:25 a.m. when the
opera lovers finally rolled up in
front of their home, the Alpha
Gamma Delta House. Muchly ap-
preciative of the police transpor-
tation, they all agreed that next
time they wouldn't let the bus get
away from them.
Shot in BusStruggle
(Special to The Daily)
ST. JOSEPH-Duane Wither-
spoon, Negro student veteran of
Benton Harbor, was declared guil-
ty here yesterday on a charge of
manslaughter which developed
from the shooting of Edward
Stowe, migrant southern fruit-
Stowe was shot July 30 during
a fight with Witherspoon on a
Benton Harbor city bus. Witnesses
agreed that Stowe, intoxicated at
the time, insulted' Witherspoon's
race, ordered him to the back of
the bus and subsequently assaulted
Witherspoon attempted to beat
off his assailant by using his gun
as a blunt instrument; in the
struggle it went off, he said.
In a summary for the defense,
Benton Harbor attorney Charles
W. Gore indicated that Wither-
spoon acted in self defense in fear
for his life. He pointed out that
threats were made by the de-
ceased, whom he quoted as saying,
"If you sat in front of a white
man in the South you would be
To Discuss Case
PARIS-(P)-The United States
declared before the Security Coun-
cil its firm intention to resist Rus-
sian efforts to compel the Ameri-
cans to abandon Berlin to red
In the face of Soviet refusal
even to discuss the Berlin case in
the council, all three Western
Powers urged the council to help
lift the Soviet blockade of the city.
Dr. Philip C. Jessup, the U. S.
delegate, charged the Russians
with using all possible means to
force the Western Powers from
Berlin, including "political brib-
ery" of the Germans. But he
stressed that the U. S. is willing.
to have an immediate meeting of
the council of foreign ministers
on Germany "the moment the
blockade is lifted."
A BRITISH source said the rep-
resentatives of the Western Powers
met tonight to consider the first
steps toward a formal proposal
that the council call on Russia to
raise the Berlin blockade.
Only informal talks were
held and no resolution was
drawn up, the source added. The
Western Powers intentionally
put their case to the Council to-
day without any formal proposal
for action, saying merely they
wanted an end to the threat to
peace caused by the blockade.
Russia's delegate Andrei Y. Vi-
shinsky sat silently through both
the morning and afternoon con-
cil sessions. For a while he read a
newspaper, to show he was not
taking part in the debate.
* * *
AT THE end of more than two
hours of steady recital of Western
charges against Russia, the coun-
cil adjourned to give other dele-
gates time to decide their courses.
No date was set for the next meet-
ing, but informed sources predict-
ed it would be Saturday morning.
Several western delegates said
the Council adjourned in order
to give the members a chance
to study the long speeches made
today and to write their own
