Sigma Alpha Mu came from be-
3ind yesterday to whip Zeta Beta
rau, 7-6, as the fraternity foot-
ball season opened at Ferry Field.
ZBT took an early 6-0 lead in
the first few minutes of play, when
Stan Levinson passed to Dick
Klein for a touchdown,rbut the
Sammies came back strong late
in the game as Warren Werthei-
mer hit Dick Radway in the end
zone with a pass'to knot the score.
Wertheimer then proceeded to lob
a pass to Tom Kovan for the extra
point to give SAM the win.

test in the second hpalf when

assessed for illegal use of the.
Another fraternity contest saw
Delta Tau Delta whip Sigma Al-
pha Epsilon, 13-6. The Delts op-
ened the scoring when Al Price hit
Ed Bassett with a' 20 yard touch-
down pass, and increased their
advantage to 13 points when Max
Daniels skirted his left end for
a 40 yard touchdown run. SAE's
Jim Henson intercepted a pass
too late to halt the victorious

THE DAY'S biggest score was
rolled up by Alpha Phi, Alpha as
it steamrolled Phi Sigma Delta,
24-13. Led by baseball and basket-
ball star Don Eaddy, who tossed
three touchdown passes, the Al-
pha Phi Alphas were never head-
Eaddy pitched two payoff
passes to Barney Putnam, and
another to basketballer John
Codwell. Emile Riley scored the
other Alpha Phi Alpha touch-

down when he intercepted a
pass and ran 40 yards to score.
Lambda Chi Alpha also showed
that it must be reckoned with this
season, as it blasted Zeta Psi, 19-
7. Lambda Chi's Hal Kruger tossed
twice to Don Scotilla and once to
Dick Good for touchdowns.
CHI PHI topped Delta Kappa
Epsilon, 6-0, as Lee Krumbholz
tossed a 30-yard pass to Jim Ru-
pert, a pass which brought Chi
Phi to the Deke five yard line. On
the next play, Krumbholz faded
back and hit Jim Howell in the
end zone with a perfect pass to
give Chi Phi the game.
In a stunning upset, Sigma
Phi Epsilon was defeated by Phi
Kappa Psi, 7-0. Bill Roeder fir-
ed a 15 yard touchdown pass to
Dick Heasley to spell doom for
the Sig Eps.
Alpha Sigma Phi proved too
much for the men of Triangle, as
it pulled out a 12-0 victory. Tom-
my Ehman intercepted a Triangle
pass and ran it back 35 yards to
score, and shortly thereafter toss-
ed a 40 yard touchdown pass to
Bill Eckerman for the Alpha Sig's
second score.
In a real thriller, Alpha Delta

from Rog Mulier to score the
In another thriller, Sigma Nu
downed Psi Upsilon, 7-0, in an
overtime period. Jules Hanslovsky
caught a 50 yard pass from Jim
McGarvey to win the game.
In other games, Kappa Sigma

Phi Sigma Kappa, 2-0, when Phi

Open Drills
For Tulane
Michigan's football squad drank
twelve gallons of water yesterday
and poured twelve more gallons of
sweat into their preparations for
the season's second game against
Tulane Saturday.
Oblivious of their quick rise in
the weekly sportswriters' AP and
UP polls, the playershwent quiet-
ly through another heavy prac-
tice much the same as has been
happening since the opening of
THE EARLY portion of the aft-
ernoon was devoted to defensive
work by the first stringers against
Tulane's offensive plays, both
passing and running. The Green
Wave develops these plays from
the T-formation.
The Wolverines spent the re-
mainder of the day running of-
fensive maneuvers through the
dummies, using as big a variety
of backfield combinations as was
seen in Saturday's slaughter of
the Huskies.
It is rumored that the coaches
are avoiding scrimmaging in the
hope of forestalling injury to key
players. Right now the Maize and
Blue is reportedly in top physical
shape, having no men out with ser-
ious injuries.
Little immediate action was
taken to improve on the Wol-
verines' poor showing in the con-
versions column against Wash-
ington-they made only two
good in eight attempts-but
players engaged in this pastime
were requested to don uniforms
earlier in the future to allow
more time for booting practice.
Oosterbaan topped off yester-
day's drill with the varsity en-
gaging in wind sprints. During the
latter part of practice, varsity
fourth string players faced the
freshman team opposition in a
short scrimmage.

The 1953 World Series marks
the golden anniversary of the post-
season baseball classic and the
two pitchers who won all five vic-
tories for the Boston Red Sox in
the 1903 series will have a special
part in the 50-year ceremonies.
Denton True Cy Young, who
won two games for the Red Sox
from Pittsburgh, will throw out
the first ball at Wednesday's open-
ing game in Yankee Stadium.
Thursday the same chore will be
performed by Bill Dinneen, a
three-game winner.
Each pitcher lost once back in
the days when a team carried only
three pitchers. Young is a mem-
ber of baseball's Hall of Fame.
Dinneen later achieved consider-
able fame as an American League

By winning the opening game,
Yankee Allie Reynolds can tie

the record of seven World Series
pitching victories, set by an-
other Yankee, Red Ruffing.

As usual, Maj. Francis W. Suth-
erland's 7th Regiment band, which
has played at every World Series
in Yankee Stadium, is slated to
provide the early musical enter-
tainment with Guy Lombardo's
band taking over later for the
sixth straight stadium series.
A color guard of U.S. Marines
will hoist the flag before the
game, but the Yankees' 1952
championship pennant won't go
up the flagpole with the Stars
and Stripes. It will be hung on
the grandstand with the other
Yankee flags.

Birdie Tebbetts
To Manage Reds
NEW YORK - P) - George
Birdie Tebbetts Tuesday was nam-
ed manager of the Cincinnati Red-
legs for 1954 and 1955, succeeding
the recently fired Rogers Hornsby.
Tebbets, veterans major league
catcher, managed Indianapolis of
the American Association this sea-
son. He finished fourth with the
Cleveland farm club.
* * *
GABE PAUL, general manager
of the Cincinnati club, did not an-
nounce any salary terms. Paul said
he had considered Tebbetts for
some time but did not discuss the
matter with him until Tuesday.
The Redlegs finished sixth in
the National League under
Hornsby, who was fired seven
days before the season ended.

Veeek Sells;
Browns Shift
To Baltimore'
NEW YORK-()-- By a unani-
mous vote of 8-0 at a meeting of
the league owners-the third in
three days-the St. Louis Browns
were moved to Baltimore, a city
which bowed out of the American
League just 50 years ago.
Baltimore, the team that spawn-
ed Babe Ruth, was awarded the
St. Louis American League fran-
chise yesterday and the mayor of
tht Maryland city immediately
predicted a pennant for next year.
* -* *
BILL VEECK, the colorful owner
of the Browns who has been trying
to get out of St. Louis for more
than a year, sold his 79 per cent
controlling interest to a group
headed by attorney Clarence Miles
for $2,475,000, including all mi-
nor league properties.
As a result of the transfer,
the way also was paved for the
league to expand to 10 clubs,
including the two Pacific Coast
cities of Los Angeles and San
Del Webb, co-owner of the New
York Yankees, who led the fight
to award the Brownie franchise to
Los Angeles, admitted that he
voted for Baltimore "because I did
not want any dissension in the
league." In fact, he said, he made
the Baltimore motion.
BUT, HE added, "I made this
motion with the provision that
the American League expand into
a 10-club league to include the two
Pacific Coast cities-Los Angeles
and San Francisco."
Webb added that his efforts
to buy the Browns for Los An-
geles on behalf of unnamed in-
terests there fell through be-
cause "they would not produce
the money they were talking
about." The Los Angeles syndi-
cate had said it would produce
six million dollars in 10 days if
it got the franchise.
Mayor Thomas D'Alesandro of
Baltimore probably was the hap-
piest man in New York. He spear-
headedthe two-year fight to bring
the team to his city.
WHILE TALKING to newsmen
outside the meeting rom, D'Ales-
andro caught sight of Webb, and
with a big grin, addressed the
Yank bigwig: "Mr. Webb, I prom-
ise you when the Yankees come to
Baltimore we'll have a record
crowd out to see them.'But I must
warn you that we're out to break
your monopoly on winning pen-
nants. We're going to be in the
world series in 1954."
It was a heartbreaking battle
D'Alesandro waged. Last spring, he
tlought the Browns would wind up
in Baltimore, but the owners made
them stay in St. Louis.

Scouts Pack Press Box
To Watch Michigan Play

Daily Sports Editor
One of the things that caught
our attention at the game last
Saturday afternoon was the great
number of football scouts in the
Michigan Stadium press box.
Washington was being scouted
by her next eight opponents, and
Michigan was performing under
the watchful eyes of men from the
remaining schools on the schedule.
* * *
THE TULANE scout was kept
busy most of the afternoon re-
cording the scoring plays which
the varsity used to destroy W&sh-
ington. When the Georgia-Tulane
score was announced, he showed
not the least sign of emotion, even
though his team had dropped a
16-14 heartbreaker. His job was
scouting Michigan, and there was
no time for daydreaming about
the Greenies' game in Athens.
Scouting the Wolverines for
the University of Iowa was form-
er Michigan football captain
Archie Kodros. He was of the
opinion that Michigan had been
vastly under-rated in the pre-
season forecasts. He too was busy
taking down the plays which
were being used with such great
effectiveness by the victors.
When the score came from Iowa
City, however he brightened and
told us that Forest Evashevski
wanted that ball game more
than all the others put together.
Kodros said that he would be
watching the Wolverines again
this Saturday when they went
against Tulane. He told of an
almost all-Michigan coaching staff

himself and head coach Evashev-
ski, there are Chalmers "Bump"
Elliot, ball carrying star of the
1947 team, and Bob Flora, wio was

* * *
EVASHEVSKI and Michigan
State's Biggie Munn managed a
handshake at the center of the
field following the hard-fought
game at Iowa Stadium last Sat-
urday. It was the only time dur-
ing the Spartans' two days in
Iowa City that the two men ex-
changed words. There was no
doubt in anyone's mind that the
Hawkeyes were going all out to
win the big one against theheavily
favored Michigan State club.
Iowa gave the Spartans an
extremely good ball game, and
while we take into consideration
the fact that Evashevski had his
team sky high for the game, it
nevertheless remains common
knowledge that Iowa is not one
of the better Western Confer-
ence teams.
If Michigan State had to battle
into the closing' minutes before
putting the game away against a
foe that ranks at the bottom of
the conference, then we cannot
help but wonder what will befall
the East Lansing team when it
goes against Minnesota, Ohio
State and Michigan.
Michigan State had major trou-
ble beating one of the lowest rank-
ed teams in the Big Ten; Michigan
on the other hand rolled over a
team that was figured to be fourth
in the Pacific Coast Conference,
but when the Associated Press poll
was made public, the Spartans
were rated ahead of the Wolver-
This only shows that the ma-
jority of those voting have been
influenced by last year's results
and this year's press notices, two
factors which should never be con-
sidered when giving an appraisal
of the nation's football teams,

Wes Fesler shook his head and
mused sadly: "The reports we're
getting on Michigan State's speed
are almost unbelievable."
The word "speed' arouses an im-
mediate and doleful reaction
whenever it's mentioned around
the Minnesota coach. Fesler pin-
points the lack of tea mfleetness
as the Gophers' biggest, and prob-
ably decisive drawback.
Against Michigan State's hard-
running Spartans Saturday, Fesler
is afraid it will be fatal. "On pa-
per," the Minnesota head man
says, we don't figure to have a
chance against them.' -
-Michigan State will have to
play better ball than it did
against Iowa to beat Minnesota.
