Ghindia Proves Self Capable
Of Handling 'N' Signal Post

IN THE MIDST of an already hot and hectic' football season, with
baseball almost forgotten, there looms what truly is, or rather can
develop into, a great humanitarian project. It concerns the great game
of baseball.
The game, almost completely dominated by Old King Football the
past two weeks, still remained in the headlines because the finish was
one of the most spectacular ever seen by followers of the great Ameri-
can sport. For the first time in Major League history both the National
and American pennant winners were undecided until the very last day
MANAGER CASEY STENGAL of the New York Yankees seems
like a sure bet for "Manager of the Year" after the phenominal way he
guided his "men of destiny" to the flag. Plagued by injuries, which
people stopped counting after the total passed the hundred mark,
Stengal had the uncanny knack of being able to pull a near miracle
off the bench to provide just the punch needed to win another ball
After leading the league all year, the Yankees were bumped
out of first place by the Boston Red Sox just a week ago. It looked
dark for the Yankees, but they continued to. fight and finally
clinched the pennant in a "story book" finish.
The National League race followed almost the same pattern. The
Brooklyn Dodgers led the way throughout most of the season until
early August when the pursuing St. Louis Cardinals finally overhauled
and passed the "beloved bums" from Brooklyn.
On September 29th the Dodgers took a twin bill and the Cardinals
lost one to give the lead to Brooklyn again. They managed to hang on,
but no one was sure who would represent the senior circuit in the
World Series until the last day.
IN A WAY IT SEEMS unfair that any of the four teams should be
deprived of playing in the traditional post-season classic. There is all
the reason in the world why a series between the two second place
clubs should be held. There would seem to be little doubt about
whether or not people would go and see the "Little World Series." The
tension and interest built up in the stretch drive is still strong enough
for a sellout crowd every day.
But there is a better reason for such a series. Walter Winchell,
secretary of the American Cancer Fund, has recommended that
this series be played with the proceeds going to help in the cure
and prevention of the disease.
A strong second to that motion is echoed here. 6
The only way this drive can be brought to a head, is through let-
ters and cards sent to the owners of the two clubs.
Immediate action is necessary. With very little effort on anyone's
part, just a few minutes to write down 'We want a little world series
between Boston and St. Louis," thousands upon thousands of dollars
can be gathered to fight this dread disease.

Back from a long, pleasant and
highly profitable jaunt to sunny
California, the University of
Mighty Michigan's Wolverines
breathed a little easier as they
turned their thoughts towards
halting Army's 13game winning
The Wolverines, who have a
modest winning streak of their
own under way, didn't get quite
the tussle they expected from
Stanford's highly-touted Indians
but they apparently found the
answer to their gravest problem
in Palo Alto's sweltering heat.
* * *
A STOCKY senior named John
Ghindia turned in a job at quar-
terback reminiscent of a Yerges
or an Elliott and it looks as though
Bennie Oosterbaan can turn his
undivided attention to thoughts
of bringing another Big Ten cham-
pionship to Michigan.
Offensively Ghindia was a
hard, deadly blocker who made
life miserable for Stanford end
Bruce Van Alstyne. The big In-
dian flanker spent the afternoon
picking himself up from under
a blue shirt bearing Ghindia's
No. 24. He wasn't in on a tackle
until the third period although
a good share of Wolverine plays
came his way.
Ghindia's play - calling was
strictly professional. If he made
a mistake it wasn't noticed. Twice
a new quarterback was sent in
with a play from the bench only
to find that Ghindia had beaten
him to the call. Of such stuff are
good quarterbacks made.
* * *
HOWEVER Ghindia's perform-
ance wasn't the only bright spot
for the Wolverines. The line was
Playing in 90 degree heat the
forward wall ripped and charg-
ed at the heat conditioned In-

dian line until the home hopes
wilted completely in the second
If a standout had to be picked
among the linemen the nod would
probably go to guard Lloyd Hene-
veld whose alert play resulted in
the recovery of two important
Stanford fumbles. But he wasn't
far ahead of the pack. They were
all good Saturday.
* * *
IN THE backfield Dick Kemp-
thorn turned in his best perform-
ance to date asaan offensive full-
back and was, as usual, the best
line backer in the country on de-
Charlie Ortmann was never
more accurate in his passing and
his running game was greatly
improved over his showing
against Michigan State.
Oddly enough, with Ortmann at
his very best in the aerial depart-
ment the Wolverines could only
complete six of 25 passes. The
answer was in the receivers who,
with the exception of Harry Allis,
acted as though the ball was
charged with electricity. At least
four good passes were dropped
with nary an Indian in sight of
the Wolverine target.
* * *
beat a pushover Saturday, make
no mistake about that. Stanford
had dun up 93 points against San
Jose State and Harvard and while
neither team is a contender for
national honors, neither are they
the type to be trampled on often.
Harry (Hippy) Hugasian,
Stanford halfback, was a stand-
out early in the game when his
team mates were providing a
little blocking for him. He is
shifty and hard to bring down
and when he gets in the open
there aren't many men who will
catch him.
On defense Hugasian made a
