and Blue gridders were bathed in
sweat as they prepared to return
to Old Hearst Ranch in Pleasant-
ville, Calif., where they have been
quartered since Thursday evening.
Charlie Ortmann, who threw
a scare into Wolverine followers
by appearing for the California
trip with his right foot encased
in a soft slipper, did not work
out with the team yesterday
but he was in uniform and is
expected to be ready this after-
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan indi-
cAted that he will string along
with the same lineup this after-
noon that he employed against
Michigan State in the season
opener. There was a hint that
John Ghindia might replace Bill
Bartlett at quarterback but no
official announcement was made
to that effect and the idea remains
in the speculation stage.
Pirates Win;
Kiner Homers
Kiner got himself his 54th home
run of the year last night and set
a few more recordsdas the Pitts-
burgh Pirates edged the Cincin-
nati Reds 3-2 before a sparse
crowd of 9,416. Bob Chesnes al-
lowed only four hits, two of them
in the ninth when the Reds scored
their runs.
Kiner's smash set a new Na-
tional League record for the most
home runs hit by a player in a
month. The old mark of 15 was
set by Fred (Cy) Williams of
Philadelphia in May, 1923.
The big outfielder is now only
tfo runs short of the National
League record of 56 set by Hack
Wilson in 1930.

Five Squads
Make Big Ten
Start Today
CHICAGO-(P)-The Big Ten
football race gains momentum to-
day with three league contests in
which five teams will be making
their 1949 conference debuts.
The program includes Iowa at
Purdue, Indiana at Ohio State and
Wisconsin at Illinois. Only Pur-
due which lost 20-6 at Northwest-
ern last Saturday has launched its
league campaign.
That will leave two teams, de-
fending champion Michigan and
Minnesota, still to jump in the
conference swim the following
Saturday. Today, Michigan in-
vades Stanford in a ticklish in-
tersectional start and Minne-
sota is at Nebraska for an ap-
parent non-conference breather.
A third non-loop joust finds
Northwestern entertaining a
sprightly Pittsburgh eleven.
Today's briskest conference
clash may be the Wisconsin-Ill-
nois affair. The Illini were held
to a 20-20 tie by surprising .Iowa
State in their opener; but with
ends Tony Klimek and Walt Ker-
sulis off the injury list should
function more effectively.
The,'Badgers, relegated to the
conference cellar in pre-season
reckoning, came out fighting un-
der new Coach Ivy Williamson
with a 41-0 romp over Marquette
last Saturday.

has tossed 17 of the aerials, the
Indians have thrown the ball 37
times and never have had one go
KERKORIAN again pops into
the statistics, this time with his
foot rather than his accurate arm.
He has kicked 13 points, 10 after
touchdown and a field goal, to
lead the college gridders so far
this year.
While in the kicking depart-
ment it might be worth while
mentioning that the Indians are
sixth in the country in the punt-
ing department with an average
of 46.2 yards on six boots.
The figures continue to pile up
and show that Stanford ranks
third in the nation in the scoring
department with a total of 93
points. Wyoming leads with 99,
while Texas is second with 97.
* * *
AS FAR AS the individuals are
concerned McColl is seventh in
pass receiving, catching eight
tosses for a total of 94 yards; Hu-
gasian is 24th in punt returns
running back three for 60 yards
and 27th in rushing with 138
yards; while Kerkorian is 29th in
passing completing 10 out of 17
for a 58.8 percentage and 102
The only place the Wolverines
or any Michigan man finds
mention is in the punting de-
partment. Wally Teninga is
eighth in the nation having
booted the ball six times for an
average of 43.2 yards.
Unfortunately, the handy-
dandy slide-rule, used in cases
such as this to figure out just what
the score would be, has been mis-
placed. It would seem fairly safe

ful Curly Lambeau, the man who
put little Green Bay on the pro-
fessional football map, said yes-
terday he'd had enough of big-
time coaching.
Founder of the Green Bay
Packers in 1919 and the club's
only coach through 28 years in the
National Football League, Lam-
beau stepped into the front office
and named his three assistants to
succeed him on the field.
From now on he said, he'll
work solely as vice-president
and general manager, titles he's
held for several years. In charge
of actual playing will be line
coach Tom Stidham, backfield
coach Bob Snyder and defense
coach Charley Brock.
The move followed the most dis-
astrous season in the Packers' long
NFL historyand the only year in
which the club, playing out of a
town of 50,000, smallest in the
league, lost money. The 1948
team won only two of 12 league
games and finished out of the
first division for the first time.

To Win Today
val football squads of Michigan
State and Marquette shared Mack-
lin Stadium for final limbering up
exercises here yesterday.
The two teams clash here today
in the first game of a six-Satur-
day home stand for the Spartans.
Michigan State, edged 7-3 by
Michigan last week, was a fa-
vorite to take Marquette, beaten

41-0 by Wisconsin.

to say, however, after being sub-
mitted to such a statistical de-
luge, that Stanford would win.
FORTUNATELY for the people
who like to try to dope things out
ahead of time and incidentally
everyone else involved, a game will
be played today between the two
teams, and after it's over only one
statistic will be of vital import-
ance to anyone: the score.
Stanford is expected to start
McColl and Ken Rose at the
ends, Gordon White and Al Rau
at the tackle positions, Hart
Cook and Don Fix at guards,
and Jim Castagnoli at center.
or Kerkorian will operate at quar-
ter, Hugasian and Bob White at
halves, and Bill DeYoung at full.
Bennie Oosterbaan may switch
back to the platoon system this
afternoon. The unfamiliar hot
weather could make it impossible
for any of the Michigan gridders
to perform the entire game.
The starting line-up will prob-
ably read Harry Allis and Irv Wis-
niewski at. ends, Al Wistert and
Albert Wahl at tackles, Lloyd
Heneveld and Don McClelland at
the guard slots, and Bob Erben
at center.

Tribe Ties Tigers for Third;
Gordon Slams Two Home Runs

°'_ _

DETROIT - (P) - Joe Gor-
don's pair of two-run homers gave
the Cleveland Indians a 6-4 deci-
sion over the Detroit Tigers yes-
terday and moved them into a tie
with the Tigers for third place in
the American League race.
Gordon's heavy hitting was the
deciding factor in the opener of
the three game series that will
settle the scramble for the No.
3 spot.
Bobby Feller weathered some
heavy going to hang up his 14th
win as against an equal number
of losses. The victory was
doubly sweet to Feller since it
came against his old rival, lefty
Hal Newhouser who now has an
18-11 record.
It was Feller's second decision
over Newhouser in their three
meetings this season and left him
with a 10-4 lifetime edge over the
slender Detroiter.
Newhouser had a ragged first
inning as the Indians combed him
for a pair of runs on five hits. He
pitched three hit ball the rest of
the way, but two of the hits were
Gordon's homers into the left

centerfield stands. The other hit * * * Kellner (19-12) or Scheib (9-12) St.
