Preacher's Lesson


Kicking and passing defense
highlighted the final heavy work-
out of Michigan's footballers yes-
terday afternoon on rain-drenched
Ferry Field.
Miraculously the all day down-
pour suddenly ceased as the Wol-
verines continued to sharpen on
batting down T-formation passes
thrown by the JV's.
* * *
INCIDENTLY or coincidentally,
about the time the rains halted
Athletic Director Herbert "Fritz"
Crisler stepped on the field which
recalled to mind the old saying of
'M' Favored
Over Cadets
In Prediction
NEW YORK - (P - For those
whose interest can be diverted
from the World Series long enough
for a fling at football, here is the
third installment of pigskin pre-
dictions with a warning that some
strange developments last week
dropped our average to .802 on
89 correct guesses and 22 misses:
Army vs. Michigan-Something
will have to give here. That great
Michigan winning streak must
come to an end sometime. And
Army might be the team to end
it. Still, how can you pick against
an outfit that is rated the best.in
the land and is just aching to
avenge those 1945 and 1946 de-
feats? One slim vote for Michigan.
* *I *
OKLAHOMA vs. Texas - Be-
tween them, these two already
have scored 232 points. If Okla-
homa has tightened u its pass de-
fense, the Sooners should outscore
the speedy Texans. A sentimental
nod to Oklahoma.
Ohio State vs. Southern Cali-
fornia-Having whipped Navy
and Washington State, the Tro-
jans look like the best in the
west. One shaky vote for South-
ern Cal.

the Crisler era that "it never
rains in Ann Arbor before 6 etc."
Walt Teninga and Harry Allis
took advantage of the letup by
giving their talented toes a work-
out with the pigskin. Wally suc-
ceeded in getting off several
beautiful spiraling punts while
the Wolverines' crack flanker
split the goal posts with field
goals from the ten and twenty
yards out on the angle.,'
The pass defense was e.Vkently
directed at aiding the Wolvyrines
in stopping the heaves of. the
brilliant West Point quarterback,
Arnold Galiffa.
* * *
GALIFFA, with eight letters in
football, basketball, and baseball,
is one of the finest all-around ath-
letes in the country and is the
key man in Coach Earl "Red"
Blaik's "new'' T-plays.
If the Wolverines can bottle
up this 190 poundertfrom Don-
ora, Pennsylvania, they should
stop the Cadet attack. Galiffa
scored twice himself last week
in Army's second half comeback
against Penn State.
Big "Al" Wistert began smack-
ing dummies yesterday in further
proof that he will be ready for the
Eastern invaders.
The squad finished off the
workout bydrunning through a
lengthy signal drill to polish up
on ball-handling.

TURNABOUT'S FAIR PLAY ... This was day before yesterday,
but the same thing probably happened in the Brooklyn dugout
yesterday. Here Tommy Henrich is embraced by Allie Reynolds
as Yank teammates emerge to greet him after his game winning
homer in ninth inning of Wednesday's series game. In the all-
around welcome are: Gerald Coleman (top left); Cliff Mapes
(7); Tommy Byrnes (28) ; Gene Woodling (14); Phil Rizzuto (10)
and Johnny Mize (36). The run gave the Yankees a margin of
1-0 after a pitching battle between Reynolds and Dodgers' Don

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-Elwin (Preacher)
Roe, a slight, studious southpaw
from Arkansas, gave a magnifi-
cent performance under wracking
pressure in the late innings yes-
terday to throttle the Yankees, 1
to 0, and pull his Brooklyn Dodg-
ers even with the New Yorkers in
the 1949 World Series at one game
A, crowd of 70,053 packed into
the Yankee park witnessed a sec-
ond, throbbing mound duel, this
time between Roe and Vic Raschi,
the Yankees' big 21-game winner.
And for the second day they saw
the decision hinge on a single run.
* * *
ers' scampering Negro second
baseman, crossed the plate with
the big one off Raschi on a single
into left field by Gil Hodges in
the second inning after Jackie had
doubledand raced to third on a
pop foul.
Pitching his way out of
trouble in the eighth and ninth
frames with a cool and gritty
exhibition, Roe became the first
Brooklyn hurler to hang up a
1 to 0 victory this season. He
also became the first lefthander
to blank the Yankees this year.
Never before have two games
been won by 1 to 0 scores in a
series, much less two in succession
by that formula. As the two fight-
ing outfits go into the third con-
test tomorrow in the Dodgers'
home park, Ebbets Field, they ap-
pear more evenly matched than
identical twins, and-it's anybody's
world championship.

ROE, A 31-YEAR-OLD veteran
with a tremendous assortment of
curves, but very little speed, gave
fully as impressive a performance
as his huge stablemate, Don New-
combe, did in his heartbreaking
loser yesterday.
The Yanks nudged the cool
Preacher for six hits, two of
them in the eighth and ninth
frames, but only once during the
tense duel did the American
League champions push a man
around to third, Not until the
eighth inning did they ever have
two runners on base at the same
In the eighth, after his own;
error on a sacrifice bunt by Phil
3izzuto had put Yanks on first
and second with one out, Preacher
forced Tommy Henrich, hero of;
the opening game, to pop weakly
to left field and stopped Hank1
Bauer on an infield roller.
1. * *
the ninth with his first hit of the

series, a slow roller which third
baseman Spider Jorgensen
couldn't handle in time, the pre-
dominantly Yankee throng raised
a ruckus and told themselves ex-
citedly that the Bombers were
going to pull it out in the ninth
But they didn't reckon with
the Preacher. Johnny Lindell
went down swinging at a sweep-
ing curve-Roe's third strike-
out of the day-Billy Johnson
sent up a weak pop which Rob-
inson gobbled, and Jerry Cole-
man lofted to right for the
game-ending out.
Robinson opened the way for
the Dodger victory when he led
off the second with a solid smack
into left and tore into second base
standing up. The fleet Negro then
put on a daring piece of base
running when, on Gene Herman-
ski's high foul some 30 feet back
of first base, he took for third
after the catch and slid in with-
out even drawing a throw.
Jerry Coleman, Yank second base-
man, slipped on the damp grass
and fell. By the time he picked
himself up it was much too late
to head off Robinson.
As it happened, the play didn't
prove of importance, as Hodges'
ensuing clout into left field
would just as easily have scored
Robinson from second. I
The only other time the Brooks
threatened Raschi seriously was in
the fourth, when Hermanski lined
a hit into right center and raced
to third as the ball took a freak
hop past Joe Di Maggio and rolled
to the fence before Hank Bauer
could run it down.
* * *
WHEN RACKLEY, the next
hitter, swung and sent a slow'
roller to the right of the mound,
Hermanski barrelled for home and
went in with spikes flying. But
Coleman made a neat, running
pick-up of the ball and fired it
to catcher Charlie Silvera just
ahead of the runner. Hermanski
beefed violently at Umpire Beans
Reardon's decision, but he re-
mained out.
Silvera drew the catching as-
signment when Yogi Berra, the
Yanks' regular receiver, reported
with a swollen left thumb. The
thumb was injured several weeks
ago and the pounding it took in
yesterday's game brought the
soreness back. Berra is expected
to return to action tomorrow.


First round play in the All-
Campus Tennis Tournament,

In Third Series Scuffle

Georgia vs. Ientucky - The
Wildcats have been one of the
bigdsurprises of the season. A
quick vote for Kentucky.
* * *
NOTRE DAME vs. Purdue-The
Irish, looking ahead to next week's
date with tough Tulane, can't re-
lax too much, although the Boiler-
makers have lost both previous
starts. One carefree vote for Notre
Duke vs. Navy-Duke is an-
other team that has surpassed
pre - season predictions and
should handle Navy. Duke.
UCLA vs. Stanford-Strictly a
toss-up here. The choice is UCLA.
California vs. Wisconsin-Per-
haps one of the day's best inter-
sectional struggles. And probably
the toughest test yet for the Paci-
fic co-champs. California.
Minnesota over Northwestern,
Iowa over Illinois, Missouri over
Oklahoma A. and M., Texas Chris-
tian over Indiana, Michigan State;
over Maryland, Nebraska over
Kansas State,.Kansas over Georgea
Washington, Texas Tech over Tul-
sa, Marquette over St. Louis.
Baer Leaves,
Baer, who once briefly held thei
World Heavyweight Boxing Cham-
pionship, yesterday announced hec
will attempt a comeback.
The record books list his age atE
40 years-rather ancient for the
Max said he expects to be in
condition in six weeks.
He won the Heavyweight Title
by knocking out Primo Carnera
June 14, 1934. He lost it on a deci-
sion to Jim Braddock June 13,


NEW YORK-(fP)-Silent and
obviously dejected over their fail-
ure to hit Brooklyn pitching in the
first two games of the world series,
the Yankees turned to Tommy
Byrne in expectation of another
pitching battle.
Manager Casey Stengel refused
to admit photographers to the
Yanks' dressing room after yes-
terday's 1-0 defeat and there was
almost complete silence when re-
porters were let in five. nminutes
after the glum-looking athletes
filed through the door.
"I GUESS I'M in the same fix
they were Wednesday," Stengel
sighed as he stripped off part of
his uniform and sagged down on
a leather settee in his office.
"It will be Byrne today. I
think he's good now. He has
pitched good ball for the last
month and a half-a lot of low-
hit games."
Earlier Casey had indicated that
he would use Eddie Lopat in to-
day's third game at Ebbets Field,
but he refused further explana-
tions of his switch. As he contin-
ued to talk, however, it became
evident that the Yankee pilot
wasn't counting on his team out-
hitting the Dodgers in any slug-
* * *
"ROE PITCHED a good game
yesterday. He showed us good
control," Stengel went on. "Our
man pitched a good game, too. In
fact that's the whole story so far.
All four pitchers have done re-
markable work out there. Their
ptchers are holding us in and
ours are holding them in."
Out in the dreary locker room
Joe DiMaggio blamed the condi-
tion of the field, the result of a
football game two weeks ago, for;
the drive that took a crazy hop
past him in the first inning and
for Johnny Lindell's fielding diffi-
culties. And little Phil Rizzuto
marveled that two Brooklyn pitch-
ers had gone 18 innings without
giving a base on balls.
* * *
Big John Mize, who has been
bumping along in baseball since
1930, finally made the World
Series yesterday. Coming in asl
a pinch hitter for Charley Sil-
vera in the eighth inning, Mize1
hit the second pitch for a single.,

Before you could say "John Rob-
ert Mize" he was out of there
with George Stirnweiss taking
over as his runner.
Before the game Coach Jake
Pitler of the Brooklyn Dodgers
was giving the Brooks the business
in the dugout.
"Come on, you guys," said Jake,
who coaches at first base, "I'm
getting lonely out there, give me
* * *
The demon Dodger statisti-
cian, Allan Roth, revealed that
Preacher Roe threw 136 pitches
in hurling the 1-0 shutout for
Brooklyn. According to the
Yankee hitters, approximately
135 were curve balls.
Roe disclosed he fanned Joe
DiMaggio in the fourth with a
fork ball.
"I never knew you even had
one," remarked one regular Dod-
ger writer.
"Heck," Roe grinned. "I've been
fooling around with it all year in
the bullpen."
When the Preacher threw, a
third straight ball to Hank
Bauer with two on and two out
in the eighth, he almost threw
himself up to the plate with the
ball. Roe sprawled out and al-
most fell on his face with a
gesture of despair when he
missed the plate for the third
straight time.

Western Union reported that
274,000 words were moved from
the stadium press box alone on
the opening day. Thousands of
others were moved from the press
headquarters in the hotels and
other places. In all, about 600
scribes are covering the series.
* *4 *
Lauren Bacall, beautiful wife
of Humphrey Bogart, tried to
stand up for the Dodger half of
the seventh, but the movie actor
promptly pulled her back into
her seat. They were in a box
directly in back of the Yankee
official family.
* * *
When George Stirnweiss, the ex-
North Carolina backfield ace, went
in to run for Mize, he warmed up
by running up and down the line
just like he used to do at Carolina.

State Clashes
With Tough
Southern Foe
serious Maryland football team
will be trying to upset the Michi-
gan State applecart here tomor-
Advance reports are that Mary-
land Coach Jim Tatum records
this as his big game of the year. He
figures that if Maryland can win
this one, the Terrapins will have a
good chance for an undefeated
season and a shot at a bowl bid.
S * ,,
NCCA FIGURES show that the
clash will be between a great of-
fensive team and a great defensive
unit. Maryland is second in total
defense so far this year, yielding
only 219 yards in 98 plays.
The Southerners also have a
powerful offensive unit, as prov-
en by their 43-7 defeat of Vir-
ginia Tech and 33-7 win over
Michigan Stateis seventh in to-
tal offense with 871 yards on 121
plays. The Spartans rate second in
their pass offensive with 17 com-
pleted for 417 yards.
THE MARYLAND delegation
was due to arrive here by plane
Friday afternoon. They will not
work out and won't see Macklin
Stadium until just before game-
Impressed by scouting reports
from end coach Earle Edwards,
Michigan State Coach Biggie
Munn has warned his Spartans
that they'll have to be up on
their toes to win this one.
The MSC men in particular have
been warned against Stan Lavine,
the pass-tossing quarterback, and
such ball carriers as right half
