Michigan's cross country team
captured six of the first seven
places yesterday as it literally ran
Notre Dame into the ground by
an 18-42 score.
Jack Alexander, Central Colle-
giate cross country champion, was
the only visitor able to break Mich-
igan's domination in the event
which was won by Wolverine Ron
Wallingford. Wallingford, a soph-
omore from Ontario, Canada, cov-

excellent time of 20 minutes and

four consecutive five-minute miles
with no rest in between.

Michigan State, which hasn't got

lege football rankings with one-
sided victories today.
Top-placed Notre Dame opens
its home season at South Bend

the Irish a year ago, 22-19. But

28th straight victory, longest win-

Illinois, No. 9, can count on
an extremely busy afternoon
against unpredictable Minnesota

vorite, but the Gophers may
spring a victory.
Maryland, No. 3, is a two touch-
down favorite over North Carolina
at Chapel Hill, N.C.; UCLA, No. 4
. and favorite for the Pacific Coast's
Rose Bowl spot, is a 13-point pick
over Stanford at Palo Alto, Calif.,

York's Polo Grounds for a date
with still-rebuilding Army. The
experts figure the Southerners
10 points better.
Baylor, No. 8, is conceded a
three-touchdown margin over Van-

For the benefit of those un-
familiar with the scoring in cross
country, each team runs seven
men. The places of the first five
are added to get the team's total
and the lowest total wins.
The sixth and seventh men serve
only to make the opponents score
poorer, but do not count in the
actual team total. In cases where1
a team runs more than seven men,
those who finish worse than sev-
enth are hot counted at all and
runners finishing below them move

Dressen To Manage PCL Oakland Club

By The Associated Press
BROOKLYN--Charlie Dressen
officially surrendered the mana-
gerial reins of the National 'League
Champion Brooklyn Dodgers yes-
terday -to pilot the Pacific Coast
League Oakland club.
The announcement of the
switch, made jointly by Dressen
and E. J. 'Buzzie' Bavasi, vice-
president of the Dodgers, came
with startling suddenness.
IT HAD BEEN quite evident
during the past few days that
Dressen was through in Brooklyn.
"I am very happy about it,"
Dressen said.
The 55-year-old pilot made the
statement with a straight face but
it did not quite explain his pref-
erence.for a minor league job over,
that of managing a major league
team that he himself said "should
win the pennant next year easy."
EVEN THE disclosure that he
would be a part owner of the
club and would be working for
his old friend, Oakland Owner
Clarence Brick Laws, was not
regarded as a conclusive explana-
"Honest," Dressen said, "I'm
please as heck. I'm going to

"I realize what people will be
saying. "What's the matter with
that guy? Is he crazy? Imagine
turning down a big league job for
$40,000 to move to Oakland!" But

I'm sure I'll be, happier on the
coast. Laws is one of the finest
persons in the world. He told me
I can stay with him as long as I
want to."
