Red Hot AL Race Thrown Into Triple Tie'
G I A N T S TAN D
By MURRAY GRANT. .. Daily Sports Editor
TRYING TO PICK the winners has developed into a national pastime
as everyone tries to compare himself with the experts and say to
his neighbor, "See, I told you Oshkosh would beat South State by
And your columnist isn't any different. He's going to go out on
a shaky limb about this time every week and see if he can do as well
as some of you and perhaps give you a looksee into the weekend's
* * * *
MICHIGAN-MICHIGAN STATE-A couple of like attacks
meet on the gridiron of Macklin Field, one intent on continuing
an unbeaten skein, the other equally intent on upsetting the
favorites and establishing itself as a national power. But this guy
is going to stick by his guns and pick Michigan by 20 points over
the Spartans. Michigan, 27-7.
MINNESOTA-WASHINGTON-The mightiest line in the Big Nine
meets a comparatively strong Pacific Coast foe in an intersectional
clash. The Golden Gophers need passing, but even without it they
should romp over Washington, 19-7.
INDIANA-WISCONSIN-Last year's second place Badgers have
been strengthened by a fine crop of sophomores and should have
an easy time with Indiana and her new coach, Clyde Smith. The
Hoosiers are surposedly one of the weaker clubs in the Big Nine so
it's Wisconsin 28, Indiana 0.
NORTHWESTERN-UCLA -- Another big intersectional en-
tanglement with a strong Wildcat club meeting the Uclans out
on the coast. The Northwestern backfield of Don Berson, Frank
Aschenbrenner, Art Murakowski and Tom Worthington should be
too much for the Bruins. Northwestern by a 21-13 count.
OHIO STATE-MISSOURI - The scourge of the Big Seven meets an-
other supposedly weak Big Niner, but the Big Nine is still the
strongest conference in the land and Wes Fesler wants to get off
on the right foot. Ohio State eking out a close one, 14-13.
CALIFORNIA-NAVY-The Middies have a new coach in George
Sauer of Kansas fame and a little less murderous schedule, but
California is touted as a Rose Bowl favorite. Lynn Waldorf has done
wonders with the Californians in his two years as coach. It's a tough
one anyway you look, but we're going out on that shaky limb of ours
and are picking Navy in an upset, 20-14.
ILLINOIS-KANSAS STATE-The easiest one on the docket.
Illinois may not sweep through the Big Nine with plenty to spare,
but they certainly have more than a woeful Kansas State eleven
that is Sporting a 26 game losing streak. Illinois by a 40-6 margin.
IOWA-MARQUETTE-Dr. Eddie Anderson always comes up with
a good club and the Hawkeyes can't be counted out of any race. They
should take the measure of Marquette in their opener, so we'll give
this one to Iowa 21-7.
VILLANOVA-ARMY-Villanova proved that it was going to be
one of the powers in the East last week with a rousing 35-14 victory
over Texas. But Earl Blaik seems to be headed for another banner
year at West Point, so we'll stick by the Cadets and pick them to win
a close one in one of the best games of the day. Army 28-Villanova 20.
PURDUE-NOTRE DAME-We've saved this beauty for last since
it's the tastiest morsel on the menu. Purdue has a veteran aggrega-
tion and is one of the best in the Big Nine. Notre Dame has Frank
Leahy and a good backfield. Their line will be strong and the Boiler-
makers are in for plenty of trouble. But don't sell Stu Holcomb short.
He's done a great job at Purdue and he may pull that big upset.

in Early Drills
Michigan's freshman football
team, under the watchful eye of
their colorful coach, Wally Weber,
finished their first week of prac-
tice with a hard scrimmage at
Ferry Field yesterday afternoon.
With preliminary conditioning

Offensive and defensive teams
were selected and they got their
first taste of the famed Wolverine
The blue-shirted offensive teaml
had rough going for a while, but
they improved rapidly and began
ripping off long gains against a
smaller, but game, defensive team.

NEW YORK - (P)-The New
York Yankees knotted the Amer-
ican League race in a triple-tie
yesterdayvby defeating Boston, 9-
6, to move up even with the Red
Sox and Cleveland Indians in the
drive toward the pennant. Each
team has seven games to play.
DETROIT - (P) - The Detroit
Tigers, continuing in their role of
spoilers, threw the wide-open
American League pennant scram-
ble into a turmoil yesterday when
they hung a 4-3 defeat on the
Cleveland Indians in the first of
a three-game series.
Cleveland's set-back, together
with the Yankees' 9-6 triumph
over the Boston Red Sox.in New
York, put the three contenders
into a flat-footed deadlock. Each
team now has won 91 gaames
and lost 56 with seven games
left to play.
The Tiger victory, which
snapped Cleveland's seven-game
winning streak, simply supported
their claim as the "bad men" of
Only last Sunday the Bengals
threw a body block at Boston's
pennant aspirations by sweeping a
twin bill from the Red Sox. Just
before that, the Tigers split a
four-game series with the Yankees
to prevent the New Yorkers from
taking over the League lead.
