Kansas City Offer Gains AL Approval

'M' Line Set
For NU Tilt
Although a rash of injuries has
played havoc with Michigan's
backfield, the Wolverine line is
probably in its best shape of the
The stalwart forward wall,
which to the surprise of practical-
ly everybody, outplayed the high-
ly vaunted Iowa line last weekend,
has been greatly strengthened by
the return of center Jim Bates.
Walker Nearly Recovered
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan said
yesterday that Bates, although
still not in top condition, will see
more action this Saturday against
Northwestern than he saw last
Tackle Art Walker, who has
been bothered recently with a
bruised heel, is also nearly recov-
Sophomore left end, Ron Kra-
mer, who suffered a bruised hip in
the season opener against Wash-
ington, is back in top shape again.
But the picture is a bit darker at
the other end where Jerry Wil-
liams is bothered with a sore chest.
Oosterbaan said that Williams
will start against the Wildcats
} Saturday, and even if the injury
is aggravated the right end posi-
tion is still in good shape with
rangy sophomore Tom Maentz
backing up the able Williams.
Backfield Riddled With Injuries
The backfield, on the other hand,
is literally riddled with injuries.
Fullback Lou Baldacci, who was
out of the Iowa tilt with a bruis-
ed shoulder and a stomach dis-
order, has been working out this
week, but has not had any bodily
contact as yet. His shoulder is still
sore, and he is eleven pounds un-
der the weight at which he start-
ed against Washington. If he plays
at all against Northwestern it will
only be limited action.

Defending Ch
With Last Ha
Defending I-M football cham-
pions Sigma Alpha Mu managed
to sneak by Chi Psi, 7-6, yester-
day afternoon under clear blue
skies at South Ferry field.
The Sammies earned the right
to enter the first-place play-offs
mainly through tailback Warren
Wertheimer's passing and running
attack. After the losers' had
caught the defense napping to
take a 6-0 lead in the first half on
a 25 yard pass from Dale Ewert to
Bob Brown, Tom Kovan scored on
a screen pass from Wertheimer.

ampions Rally
if Touchdown
The all important extra point was
chalked up on a toss over center
to end Paul Groffsky. Play was
marked by hard blocking and fast
charging line play, but neither
team was able to score again.
Mazin Scores Twice
Other first-place qualifiers were
Alpha Epsilon Pi and Tau Delta
Phi. Don Mazin led the AE Pi's
to a 12-0 win over Kappa Sigma
by scoring twice on a lateral from
Mary Gersuk on a punt return
and a pass from Irwin Solomon.
The Tau Delts finished its
schedule undefeated by walking
over Theta Delta Chi, 13-0. Chuck
Baraf threw passes to Al Shuster
and Aaron Po hurst for touch-
downs and to Podhurst for the
extra point.
ZBT Wins Easily
Zeta Beta Tau rolled over pre-
viously undefeated Theta , Chi,
20-7, in another important league
contest. The final standings hinge
on whether or not Triangle can
down Delta Chi in a later game.
Outstanding for ZBT were tail-
back Mort Siegel, and back Harry
Israel, who scored twice on tosses
from Siegel.
Alpha Sigma Phi made the sec-
ond-place playoffs by beating Phi
Kappa Tau, 13-6. After Rex Youse
had run the opening kick-off back
for a touchdown for the losers, the
Alpha Sigs struck back with Bob
Vievers scoring on an interception
and a pass from Bruce McCubbree.
Eaddy Passes for Score
Alpha Phi Alpha also won, 7-0,'
over Theta Xi. On a short pass:
from Don Eaddy to Myron Wahls.
Barney Putnam added the seventh,
point. Psi Upsilon downed Phi Sig-
ma Delta, 7-0, with the one score
being registered by Hugh Ban-I

Chicago (R)- Hard cash and
club owner caution made the dif-
ference between Kansas City and
Los Angeles as new home of the,
Philadelphia Athletics. '
In their nine-hour meeting Tues-
day when Kansas City-bound Ar-
nold Johnson got the nod, Ameri-
can League owners gave serious
thought to Los Angeles which
might have won the A's if an of-
fer by the Texas Murchison inter-
ests was acceptable.
It wasn't, not only because it
fell far short of Johnson's $3,375,-
000 in cold cash-although match-
ing it on paper-but also for rea-
son that the club owners doubted
Los Angeles would be easy to
crack for a major league team,
according to a reliable source.
There was some sentiment for
a jump to the West Coast, beat-
ing the National League to the
punch, even though it was argued
it would be impractical to have
one member club that distance
from the rest of the league.
The Washington Senators, par-
ticularly, preferred to have the
A's shifted to Los Angeles where
according to two county officials,
appearing at the meeting, Wrigley
Field probably could be obtained
for the 1955 season on a Major
League level.
There was a suspected tie-up be-
tween Robert F. Thompson of Dal-
las, who made the Los Angeles
pitch for wealthy Clint Murchison;
the two Los Angeles County emis-
saries; and Bill Veeck, who long
has been surveying the West Coast
for big league ball.
Actually, though, it took an im-
passioned plea by Roy Mack's at-

torney and long-time personal
friend, C. Brewster Rhoades, to
convince his client he had to give
up the Philadelphia ghost and that
Johnson's offer was his only sal-
With tears In his eyes, Roy Mack

... an era ends

and his son, Connie III, left the
meeting room after Roy said he
would consider the Johnson offer,
He has until Monday to make offi-
cial acceptance, a grace permitted
to inform his wife whom he was
unable to reach Tuesday night.
