In the top of the seventh.-
This was a tense struggle that
opened with a rapid fire pitching
battle between lefty Ed Lopat and
Joe Black and wound iup in a 2
hour and 54 minute battle that
used up seven pitchers-four
Yanks and three Brooks.

GIL HODGES, in a horrible
slump all through the series, hit
the ball hard on all four trips in
this last game, but it did no good.
He went into the book with two
others who went 0 for 21 in a
Series-Billy Sullivan of the White
Sox hitless wonders in 1906 and
Jack Murray of the 1911 Giants.
They both did it in six games,

batting average, and Mize's three
great homers and his "almost"
fourth in the Sunday game. Then
there is Woodling, playing de-
spite a groin injury. And Rey-

On the Brooklyn side, Snider
was a standout with four home
runs equalling the Series' records
set by Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig.

THE NATIONAL League hasn't

St. Louis Cards whipped the Bos-

count now stands 32-17 in favor

NOTEWORTHY FIGURES-In the 1952 World Series include Yankee Manager Casey Stengel (left)
who piloted the Bronx Bombers to their fourth title in as many years; Mickey Mantle (center), who
paced the victors with a .345 batting average and Dodger first sacker Gil Hodges (right), who was the
hitting goat of the Series with nothing for twenty-one times at bat.

To Cope with Indiana Passes
Twice defeated and anxious to
break into the win column, Mich-
igan's football team ran through
a light practice yesterday sharp-
ening up the offense and defense
for the Conference opener against
Indiana here Saturday.
The defensive unit worked
against a scrub team utilizing the
Hoosier T-formation offense, with
pass defense again getting the
major emphasis. The coaching
staff utilized almost every back
on the squad in the secondary in
an attempt to remedy the defect
which has caused the defeat of
the Wolverines for the past two
RUSS RESCORLA, Dave Tink-
ham Tom Witherspon, dFred
Bob Hurley and Stan Knicker-
bocker all saw action in the de-
fensive backfield. The first-string
defensive line also worked out
against the Indiana offense -
readying themselves to stop Hoos-
ier Lou D'Achille before he can
fill the air with passes.
The offensive dummy scrim-
inage was sparked by the fine
passing of Ted Topor, Ted Kress
and Duncan McDonald and the
impressive receiving of ends Bob
Topp and Bob Dingnian. Kress
and Ed Hickey looked sharp on
running plays, moving from the
tailback and wingback spots
A sidelight of the practice which
may prove all-important before
the week is up was an ankle sprain
suffered by Captain Merritt Green,
the first string defensive left end.

Stan Knickerbocker and Tony

Stengel's hand solemnly.
"I seen you talk on television

said Stengel. "You're wonderful."

pitching staved off the late threat
of the Dodgers, slipped into the

Crisler questioned whether the
curb on spring practice was a
good thing for student athletes.
"It's inevitable that coaches will
devote time only to those blue chip
men who they know will produce,"
he said. He sai dthat meant many

"We've developed a high degree
of specialization in recruiting and
we're all in it. Those we go after
get a chance to play. The others
don't come out," he said. Crisler
said in the old days 15 or 20 stu-
dents who weren't invited would
come out for the team some years.

DUE TO A FUMBLE in the end
zone by Alpha Delta Phi, the Betas
picked up two insurance points via
the safety route.
Alpha Delta Phi scored its
two touchdowns oni a 25 yard
pass from Roger Mulier to Gor-

ter's toss to Mulier.
Another high scoring game was

Barad led his team to victory pass-
ing twice to Pete Katz, and then
to Bob Paley. He also pitched one
to Ivan Kahn for an extra point.
BLOOMINGTON (A') -Indiana
University's football team suffered
a heavy blow yesterday when vet-

for the season.
Russo suffered a back injury on

ing X-ray pictures Tuesday Dr.
