Volverine Defenders Fail
. Stop Spartans' Passes

ALL IN A DAY'S WORK:
Spartan Gridders Take Win in Stride

(Continued from Page 1)

Led by its crafty field general
Yewcic, Michigan State knotted
the score early in the second quar-
ter. After Michigan's attack fizzled
on its own 37, Bill Billings booted
to Ellis on the State 19 who rated
it back to the 31 before being run
out of bounds. A third down screen
pass from Yewcic to halfback Le-
Roy Bolden gave the visitors a
first down on the Michigan 45.
YEWCIC first sent fullback
Wayne Benson into the line to
'draw in the Maize and Blue de-
fense, and on the next play found
Bolden all alone in the Michigan
secondary and hit him with a
bulls-eye pass on the 15.
Bolden was bowled 'out of
bounds on the three yard line
by safetyman Perry.
On the next play, Bolden copied
Kress' earlier jaunt by sweeping
right end for the touchdown. The
extrapoint try misfired to give the
Wolverines a short lease on life.
* * *
WHAT MAY well have been the
turning point of the game followed
iinutes later.
Taking the subsequent Spar-
-tan kickoff, Michigan marched
55 yards in five plays for a first-
down on the State 23, the key
effort being a 22-yard fourth
down dash by rushed kicker Bil-
lings.
An off-tackle thrust by Kress
moved the ball to the 19. The fol-
lowing play all but ended Wolver-
inekhopes. Howell, who did a work-
horse job all afternoon, took a
handoff from Topor and flashed
into the Spartan secondary only
to have the pigskin squirt out of
his arms and into the eager hands
of State's Ellis.
HAVING ENDED Michigan's
threat, the Spartans engineered a
sustained drive which carried them
86-yards to what proved to be the
winning touchdown.
Yewee and McAuliffe passes
and shifty reverses by hard..
running Wells moved Michigan
- State to the Michigan five in
nine plays. Wells applied the
coup de grace on a quick-opener
up the middle, scoring stand-
ing up. The extra point made it
20-13, the score at halftime.
The second half was almost all
State. Michigan's sole serious
threat ended on the Spartan 14
when a hurried jump pass by
Kress was intercepted by Ellis.

A RECOVERED FUMBLE led to
MSC's insurance touchdown. Re-

Stars Named
ST. LOUIS- (IP) -Hammerin
Hank Sauer and Robin Roberts of
the National League and Luke
Easter and Bobby Shantz of the
American yesterday were named
by the Sporting News as the out-
standing players and pitchers of
the 1952 Major League season.
'The weekly sports newspaper,
self-styled Bible of Baseball, in-
"itiated its dual selection method;
in 1948 as "The fairest method of
naming top stars."
ISauer, the slugging outfielder of
the Chicago Cubs, was the National
League player choice for "his pow-
erful contributions to the club's
rise from last to fifth place." Sauer
currently is leading both leagues
with 37 home runs and 121 runs

Cleveland's Easter earned his
award for a late season batting
surge, after two weeks in the
minors, that "Sparked the Indians'
pennant fight more than any other
factor." The big first baseman
shares the American League home
run lead with teammate Larzy
Doby with 31.

scored on a short Yewcic to Bol-
den flat pass. Slonac's extra point
ended the day's scoring.
Apparently the greater Spar-
tan depth wore Michigan down
in the second half. Several Wol.
verines, notably Topor, Perry
and guards Dick Beison and Bob
Timm, were forced to perform
on both offense and defense.
Michigan State Coach Biggie
Munn substituted freely through-
out the game, on both offense and
defense.
It was not until the final three
minutes that Oosterbaan was able
to substitute liberally. Sophomore
quarterback Duncan McDonald
appeared in the waning minutes
long enough to compiete a 38 yard
throw to end Bob Topp.

By JOHN JENKS
Michigan State's Spartans, who
only recently "arrived" as a big-
time football power, bore a Yan-
kee-like air of victory acceptance
in the aftermath of their thrilling
win over Michigan yesterday af-
ternoon.
Although Coach Biggie Munn
admitted he was stunned by the
Wolverines first quarter outburst,
his players appeared to take the
triumph as a matter of course.
* * *
THE GREEN and White locker
room was the scene of very
moderate celebration. The men
exchanged congratulations and
dressed quickly to escape from the
oppressive heat of the room.
Across the aisle the Wolver-
ine dressing room was blanketed
under a cloud of gloom. Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan sat in a cor-
ner and mulled the results over
and over in his mind.
"The boys gave it their all and
never quit" were his words when
asked his opinion of the game.
The Michigan mentor also stated
that pass defense would be stress-
ed this week in preparation for
tlje Stanford contest.
* * *
MUNN, on the other hand, was
understandably loquacious in his
press interview. In his opinion the
turning point of the tilt was Don
McAuliffe's 70 yard dash for
State's first score.
"That started us on the come-
back trail," stated the Spartan

head. An aide pointed out that
MSC has seemingly made a
habit of coming from behind
during its win skein.
When questioned about the ef-
fect the win would have in the
national ratings, Munn replied
that he doesn't believe in polls,
ratings, and other press pastimes.
LOWELL PERRY and Ted To-
por were singled out by Munn as
the outstanding Wolverine play-

CAMPUS BOOTERY
304 South State

WEST POINT, N. Y.-(IP)-Dis-
playing, sporadic flashes of explov
sive power reminiscent of its fam-
ed predecessors, the supposedly en-
feebled Army football team surged
to a convincing 28 to 7 victory over
a slightly favored South Carolina
eleven yesterday.
The Michie Stadium crowd of
23,474, expecting the worst from
a team still in the process of re-
construction, was brought to its
feet within seconds as Jerome Ha-
gan snared the opening South
Carolina kickoff, sprinted to his
right, swiveled away from one
tackler, and raced 84 yards for a
touchdown.
* *
THAT SURPRISING develop-
ment was followed almost immed-
iately by another flash of offen-
sive strength as Pete Vann passed
to Lowell Sisson for a 57 yard gain
and a second score.
The Carolinians- fought back
gamely and soon after the sec-
ond period opened Johnny
Grambling passed 32 yards to
Clyde Bennett, who stepped into
the end zone for the lone Game-
cock touchdown of the day.
The Cadets, taking full advan-
tage of South Carolina fumbles,
added a third touchdown late in
the second period after John
Krause had intercepted a desper-
ation pass on the Carolina 14.
Meyer Quits
After Pirates'
Worst Season
CINCINNATI-(P)-Billy Meyer,
oldest National League manager
in both age and service, finally
gave up yesterday after five years
of trying to nurse a pennant con-
tender out of the rookie-studded
Pittsburgh Pirates.
The 59-year-old Meyer handed
in his resignation, effective after
today's game with Cincinnati, as
the Pirates prepared to take the
field against the Reds. He blamed
ill health.
Meyer has managed the Pirates
since 1948 when he was named
manager of the year for directing
the Bucs to a fourth-place finish.
Then the Pirates hit the skids--
finishing sixth in 1949, lastin
1950, seventh in 1951 and last
again this year in one of the poor-
est seasons in the club's history.

IT WAS Schweikert again in the

NAVY 31, YALE 0
BALTIMORE-(I)-An assort-
ment of offenses from practically
every football book and then some
made up by Coach Eddie Erdelatz
finally jelled in the fourth quar-
ter to carry Navy to a 31-0 thump-
ing over Yale in Baltimore Sta-
dium yesterday.
A crowd of 25,000 fans watched
the Navy sweat out a 10-0 three
quarter lead and then breeze to
three touchdowns in the last 15
minutes.
THE NAVY attacking with ev-
erything except the Statue of Lib-
erty play, going from the Split T,
Single Wing, Double Wing and
Box. It ran up scads of yardage
but couldn't score until the sec-
ond period and then began to
smooth out as the game progress-
ed.
The Navy thus got off its first
winning start since 1946 when it
whipped Villanova, then coached
by Jordan Oliver who was guid-
ing Yale yesterday.
While the offensive platoon was
getting used to its new attack like
a kid with a Christmas toy, the
Navy defense stood impregnable,
holding the opposition to a mere
6 yards on the ground.
* * *
YALE TRAVELED 16 yards by
air, once to the Navy 17 in the
second period. That was its only
threat. Yale didn't get past mid-
field in the second half.
Two seniors making their first
appearance on the varsity, Steve
Schodephek of Duquesne, Pa.,
and Bill Robinson of Arlington
Heights, Ill., added to Navy's
new look by scoring the last
three touchdowns.
Schoderbek, substitute quarter-
back, sneaked over twice from a
few yards out. He threw a 30-yard
pass to set up the other score by
Robinson from four yards away.
The Navy running attack chalk-
ed up 254 yards and passes ac-
counted for 102 more. Penalties of
112 yards and four fumbles helped
slow up the offense.

expressed satisfaction at the
workman -like performance of
quarterback Tom Yewcic.
Yewcic, cast in the unenviable
position of replacing Al Dorrow,
who achieved considerable fame
in leading State last year, spear-
headed the Spartan attack with
his signal-calling and pass
throwing exploits.
