CLEVELAND - (W) - For the
fourth straight game a Cleveland
pitcher stood the hapless Boston
Braves on their collective heads
today in the great Lakefront
Stadium, and the Indians took a
virtual stranglehold on the world
baseball championship with a 2-1
victory over the National
The pitcher was Steve Gromek,
right out of Manager Lou Boud-
reau's bottom drawer.
THE ONLY SCORE the Braves
made off the 27-year-pld right-
hander was a well-tagged home
run by Mary Rickert, the minor
league outfielder who got in the
play-offs at the last minute be-
cause of an injury to Jeff Heath.
In running their advantage to
3-1 in games and putting them-
selves in position to close out
the series tomorrow behind Bob
Feller, the Indians beat the big
tobacco - chewing fellow who
licked them in the Boston open-
er, Johnny Sain.
They clipped him for only five
hits, all in the first five frames.
But one of their blows was a
double by Boudreau with one on
base in the first inning, and ano-
ther was a home run smash by
outfielder, Larry Doby, deep over
the right center field railing in
THAT WAS ALL Gromek
needed as he sneaked a weird as-
sortment of curves and screwballs
past the bewildered Bostons. In
all, he gave up seven hits, but
Rickert was the only Brave to see
third base. Just to demonstrate
that he could do it, the Cleveland
chukker racked up two strikeouts
in the final inning, his only ones
of the game.
Rickert's round-tripper broke
a string of 23 scoreless innings
for the Braves, starting in the
second game of the series. Gene
Bearden southpawed them into
a helpless state yesterday.
As a matter of passing interest,
Rickert's blow was exactly the
200th home run ever hit in a
world series game.
Again, and for the fourth
straight day, today's great crowd
more or less sat on its hands.

Dewey to view the Michigan-

WASHINGTON - (A') - Presi-
dent Truman disclosed that he
had considered-and rejected on
the advice of Secretary of State
Marshall- an extraordinary mis-
sion by Chief Justice Vinson to tell
Moscow how the American people
feel about "the atomic problem."
Vinson was to have undertaken
a personal attempt to straighten
the Russian leaders out on this
grave matter, Truman said in a
THE PLAN was dropped, he
said, because of the general situ-
ation as reported by Masha
and because of the "possibilities
of misunderstanding" which might
grow out of a single-handed ac-
tion by the United States.
Marshall, in a late day news
conference, noted that he had
seen reports of "a split between
the President and the Secretary
of State." lie added emphati-

Marshall, I told him of my con-

and of my particular concern at
this time over the attitude taken
by the Soviet representatives re-
garding the atomic problem.
"I said that I was wondering
whether their attitude did not
reflect a misunderstanding in
the minds of the Soviet leaders
so serious, from the standpoint
of world peace in general, that
we would be remiss if we left
undone anything that might
conceivably serve to dispel it.

Crowd of 45,596 Sees Wolverines
Victorious in Initial Big Nine Game
By BUD WEIDENTHAL
Associate Sports Editor
LAFAYETTE, Indiana -Flashing tremendous power
and a superb offensive attack Michigan's Wolverines stunned
and completely amazed a record home-coming crowd of 45,596
fans as they submerged a baffled Purdue eleven, 40-0, yester-
They looked like the magnificent team of old as they ran
and passed circles around the highly touted Riveters and had
them at their mercy throughout most of the contest.
The Wolverines pulled a whole host of tricks out of the
bag that had the home team completely confused.
Michigan's running attack, that had failed to click up to this
week, unfolded with knifelike brilliance.
Resorting to the aerial route only 15 times all afternoon, it was
the deceptive and shifty running of Leo Koceski, Chuck Ortmann
and Wally Teninga that rolled the Maize and Blue to tge most decisive
win over the Boilermakers in the history of their long rivalry.
* * *~ *
BEN OOSTERBAAN'S SMOOTH working eleven never relin-
quished the ball on downs in the entire first half, scoring each time
they gained possession of the pigskin.
The Wolverines made it look easy as they rolled up two rapid
fire touchdowns in the opening quarter.
After winning the toss and choosing to kick off, the Michigan
eleven stopped the Boilermakers on downs and took over on their
own 41 yard line.
They marched down the field on a series of 14 plays and scored
the first touchdown of the afternoon on a three yard run off tackle
THE DRIVE WAS sparked by a brilliant pass from Ortmann to
Dick Rifenburg that went for 30 yards. Rife was in the clear on their
one but slipped as he headed for the goal line. Allis' kick was good.
The second Wolverine drive of the quarter came when Dan
Dworsky intercepted a Boilermaker pass over the line of scrimmage
and ran it back to his own 45.
Nine plays later, without resorting to a single pass, Tom Peterson
