Saturday when the Webfeet
Oregon take the field against theI
Wolverines, they'll be expecting a
team that squeaked by Michigar
State by a narrow six-point mar-
They'll be mistaken.
* * *
THE LINE THAT seemed to melt
against a driving State offense will
be backed by veteran Wolverine
Dick Kempthorn.
Joe Soboleski will be back at left
tackle, and Teninga and Ortmann
will both work out of the left half-
back position.
The webfeet will be counting
primarily on the passing of Norm
Van Brooklin. Though he com-
pleted 76 out of 198 tries last year,
he'll now be passing into a dan-
ger area of Michigan defense.
Teninga and Elliott have both
shown up superbly on pass de-
the hospital today with his knee
still bothering him, and Pete Den-
drinos was on the sidelines also.
But Kempthorn and Soboleski and
Ghindia would all be back in
playing condition fq' the game.
Kempthorn was working out of
an offensive backfield with Tenin-
ga at left half; Peterson was work-
ing combined Ortmann.
Rifenburg was looking as good
as ever at end, and Kocesski was
gathering the pigskin in from both
Ortmann and Teninga.
DANNY DWORSKY, 210 pound
center, looked very good in the
State game and seemed to be do-
ing fine at practice.
He, Ralph Kohl and Al Wistert,
220 pound tackles, will be the only
Michigan men over 300 facing the
Oregon line that averages 209
pounds, 13 over the Wolverine
line average.

over Detroit tomorrow would as-

Indians open their final three'
game set with the Tigers, the Red
Sox close out their season Sat-
urday and Sunday in a two game'
struggle with the New York Yan-
kees. If they can win both from
the Yanks, Cleveland must drop
two of three to force a Monday'
afternoon tie playoff.
The New York Yankees re-
tained their slim stake in the
American League flag race by
outscrambling Connie's Mack's
Athletics 9 to 7 in a rain-swept
game at Shibe Park today.
When Vic Raschi, third Yankee
pitcher in the ninth inning, stifled
the last two Athletic batters with
the bases loaded, it meant that the
World Champions still had an out-
side chance of winning the
pennant they captured last year
by a dozen games.

The skimpy crowd of 2,622
cash customers raised Detroit's
best home attendance total in
history to 1,743,035 for 77 games,
considered exceptional for the
Tigers' second division standing.
Bob Dillinger, the Browns' fine
hitting third sacker, got three of
his team's seven safeties off Gray,
raising his hit total for the season
over the 200 mark to 202.
Everybody in the Tiger lineup
except George Vico hit safely at
least once as three Brownie hurl-
