THE MICHIGAN DAILY
DAILY PICKS 'EM!
Wahl Named Mich igan
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in
a series of articles featuring the Line-
man-of-the-Week as selected by
members of The Daily sports staff.)
Naming the first Michigan line-
man for this honor was not a sim-
ple task, but we all seemed to agree
with head coach Bennie Ooster-
baan, who said after the Oregon
game, "Wahl turned in a fine
game for us.
Al Wahl, burly right tackle on
the defensive team, charged like
an electric wire all afternoon
against the Webfoots. He stopped'
the West Coast land attack from
making any headway as he refused
to be shouldered aside.
COMING INTO contact with
Wahl necessitated a cushioned
shock. absorber. The Webfoots
learned this is four-tough-downs-

BRAVES FIELD, Boston-(P)-The favored Cleveland Indians
bounced back behind righthander Bob Lemon yesterday to clip the
Boston Braves, 4 to 1, and square the World Series at a victory apiece
as the play-offs moved west for the next three games.
Partly recovered from the batting palsy which afflicted them
against shut-out Johnny Sain in Wednesday's opener, the American
League kings rocked southpaw Warren Spahn from the hill in a

Two tries over the right side
of the line netted nothing, while

head after plunging into the im-
movable object and the rest of
From that goal line exhibition,
Wahl took on the nickname
"Brick." And his sature bears this
out even farther. He stands six-
feet-three and weighs in at 215.
At one time the guy from Oak
Park, Ill. was seriously consid-
ering taking his talent to the
Wisconsin Badgers. His uncle,
Herb Steger, captain of the
1924 Wolverines, talked him out
of that move, and Wahl entered
Michigan in 1945.
He's now in his second year,
having served in the Army since
his freshman season.

Sigma Alpha Mu upset a highly
favored Zeta Beta Tau football
team in the I-M tourney Wednes-
day by a 6-0 count to loom as a
definite threat to the crown now
held by Alpha Tau Omega.
The ATO's were previously beat-
en by ZBT in the first week of
play. The Sammies must face
ATO in the finale of their league1
play before the championship
finals get under way.
Al Weiss scored on a. pass from
Milt Siegel the first time SAM got
the ball, and although they threat-
ened continually the one touch-
down was enough. ZBT never
came close to scoring as the Sam-
my line did not yield a first down.

because of rain, has been re-
scheduled for 4 p.m. Thursday,

Lemon's gilt-edged curving.
THE INDIAN chucker, who de-
livered a total of 10 shut-outs for
the Tribe in the regular season,
would have blanked the National
League champs but for an error
by second baseman Joe Gordon
which led to an unearned run in
the first inning.
Manager Lou Boudreau led
the assault on Spahn which
inflicted the first World Series
loss ever suffered by the Braves.
The team's play-off record,
going back to the storied 1914
series against the Philadelphia
Athletics, was 5-0 up to today.
Cleveland's handsome shortstop-
manager started Spahn's downfall
with a lead-off double in the
fourth, scoring a moment later on
Joe Gordon's line single to left
with the first Indian run of the
IIE COMPLETED the rout of
the lefthander an inning later
when he slashed a single through
the box into center field to score
Dale Mitchell, who had singled
and advanced on a sacrifice. That
was all for Spahn, who chalked
up 15 wins for Boston in the reg-
The fourth Cleveland run in
the ninth inning was tainted.
Catcher Jim Hegan got on when
Alvin Dark, Boston's rookie
shortstop, made his second glar-
ing bobble of the game, and con-
tinued around on a couple of
infield outs and a blow to center
by Bob Kennedy.
Larry Doby, Cleveland's crack
young Negro centerfielder, was the
only member of the Cleveland
club besides Boudreau to connect
more than once. He laced a double
to deep left centerfield with two
down in the second for the In-
dians' first safety off Spahn, and
powered Joe Gordon across the
plate with a fourth-inning single.
Tommy Holmes, who knocked
Masi across with the winning run
yesterday, had no luck at all
against Lemon. On three of his
four trips he failed to get the ball
out of the infield.

TODAY IN Cleveland's huge mu-
nicipal stadium, it will be Gene
Bearden for the Indians against
Vernon Bickford, crack young
rookie righthander of the Braves.
Bearden is the cool lefthander
who hurled 20 victories for
Cleveland in the regular season,
including a great job of throt-
tling the Boston Red Sox in the
American League play-off game
here last Monday.
Bickford woh 11 games for the
Braves in his first campaign, doing
some of his most spectacular work
in the latter part of the season.

continued to worry Coach Stu
Holcomb of Purdue today.
With Clyde Grimenstein defi-
nitely lost at end, Stu Scheer was
named as probable started against
Michigan Saturday. Rex Sebas-

Right Halfback Norbert Adams
still remained doubtful. Neil
Schmidt, who has been second
string left half, will start at right
half if Adams is not ready.
SOUTH BEND, Ind.(-AP)-Left

the doubtful list with a knee in-
jury, was listed today as a likely
starter against Michigan State
Martin had injured the knee
again in practice Tuesday, and
first reports had been pessimistic.
Indians' isputed Pick-off
FinallyClicks Against Boston
The same pick-off play which Earl Torgeson was on secoid
created a furore in the opening and Bob Elliott on first, one

A baseball writer asked, Man- one was out when the Cleveland

during the regular season, nearly

and helped pull Bob Lemon out of inugesturing that Torgeson was
a jam in the first inning, out.
