Defeat of Michigan larks
Spartans as Gridiron Power
By TED PAPES
As of last Saturday, the word'
'upset' is obsolete withreference to
any Michigan State football con-
The Spartans banished all
doubts that they can hold their
own in the Big Ten when they
startled Michigan on opening day.
It was their inspired and polished
gridiron tactics more than any
other factor that made the victory
In their wake they left the Wol-
verines with the usual assortment
of bumps and bruises besides their
first loss of the season.
Chuck Ortmann, who was side-
lined in the first period and did
not return to action, sustained a
sprained right ankle, Trainer Jim.
Hunt reported yesterday that he
could not yet determine whether
the versatile halfback would be
ready for Dartmouth this week-
Ortmann's mishap came at the
end of a fine runback of a Michi-
gan State punt. He pulled himself
out of a pileup on the Wolverine
35, favoring his right leg, only to
have it crumble beneath him on
the subsequent play as he stepped
back to pass.
Michigan's other first string
halfback, Leo Koceski, was cut
badly in the ear but three stitches
have repaired the damage.
The Wolverines made several
opening-game errors which would
not have been so costly with a
less fiery opponent. Against the
backdrop of State's brilliance they
probably appeared worse than was
the actual case.;
Wild passing was mingled with
accurate tosses by both Bill Putich
and Don Peterson who took up the
slack in Ortmann's absence. The
13 passes completed established
the fact that Michigan is poten-
tially stronger in the air than it
was last year.
DOROW PASSES WELL
The Spartans gained 108 yards
passing against 133 for the losers.
Visiting quarterback Al Dorow pre-
sented a highly poised aerial at-
tack, an element which was miss-
ing when State lost here a year
Many observers criticized the
Wolverines for their play at the
close of the second period. They
had a first down on the Spartan
19 in the closing minute and
moved to the 14 on the next play.
With the clock ticking away,
Putich failed on two desperation
pass attempts as Michigan rooters
prayed for a time-out call. Not too
many of them realized that the
team had already used up its
limit of five rests in the half.
A break would have cost five
yardsband Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan elected to try the same stra-
tegy which paid off against Min-
nesota last year.
In that game Putich engineered
a last-minute drive which culmin-
ated in a touchdown with only ten
seconds remaining in the first half
without the benefit of an addition-
al time out.
Michigan certainly was not
alone in defeat Saturday. The
day turned out to be one of the
most disasterous in the history of
the Western Conference as four
of the nine teams which will battle
for the league title were beaten
and a fifth was tied by non-Con-

as the Mustangs of Southern Me-

fourth quarter to win, 32-27. Min-

"Of course I think we'll win
but they've got some tough pitch-
ers. That's the only way they can
win-if they get great pitching. I
don't think they'll outslug us."

Raschi has appeared in two
world series but has never opened
one. He split two decisions last
year. His season's record is 21-8.

very much in doubt yesterday as

Guesses are that Manager Eddie
Sawyer of the Phils may cpme
back with Roberts (20-11), the
young righthander who clinched
the National League flag for the
Phils Sunday. He would have only
two days rest, however.
The opening day lineup as an-
nounced by Stengel is:
Gene Woodling, left field
Phil Rizzuto, shortstop
Larry Berra, catcher
Joe DiMaggio, centerfield
Johnny Mize, first base

Billy Johnson or Bobby Brown,

PHILADELPHIA -() - This
city recovered slowly yesterday
from its finest hangover in 35
years and prepared joyously to
root its "Whiz Kids" to victory
over the New York Yankees in
the World Series.
There have been some delirious
pennant-winning towns in the
past, but none that surpassed
Philadelphia. The sidewalks still
were crowded with baseball talk-
ing fans today, and from the looks
of them few had been to bed since
Dick Sisler hit his homerun late
Sunday in Brooklyn.
PHILS DRILL TODAY
Manager Eddie Sawyer and his
youthful charges slept long after
Sunday night's victory celebration
at a downtown hotel and roused
only late in the afternoon to go
to Shibe Park and cut up their
share of the series purse. Theyj
did not work out, but plan te put
in a lengthy batting session today.
Everywhere they went in the city

in clinching the pennant Sunday.
SAWYER'S CHOICE UNKNOWN
If manager Sawyer had decided
on his opening pitcher he was
keeping it very much to himself.
He half-indicated after Sunday's
victory that he would send Robin
Roberts, his 20-game winner, right
back at the Yanks with only two
days of rest, but the local experts
were inclined to doubt he would
use the youngster.
Rather there was a strong feel-
ing hereabouts thatSawyer will go

a crafty lefthander who serves up
quantities of what the baseball
trade calls "junk." This type of
pitcher has enjoyed marked suc-
cess against the Yankees this
