HAPPY BIRTHDAY:
Podres' Five-Hitter Paces Brooklyn

t

Sten gel May Rest Ailing
Mantle in Today's Game

BROOKLYN (P)-Sturdy John-
fny Podres celebrated his 23rd
birthday yesterday by mixing his
left-handed fast ball with a teas-
ing change of pace to give Brook-
lyn its first victory over the New
York Yankees, 8-3, in the third
game of the World Series at Eb-
bets Field .
Roy Campanella, given up for
dead with the other Dodgers after
going hitless in two losing games
at Yankee Stadium, awoke from
his slump with a two-run homer,
double and single to drive in three
runs.
The Brooks chased fire-balling
Bob Turley when he turned wild
in the second and continued to
bump Tom Morgan, Johnny Kucks
and Tom Sturdivant for 11 hits.
Podres Falters
In the sixth it appeared that
Podres, trying to go the route for
the first time since June 14, was
on the ropes. Gil McDougald and
Yogi Berra had lined singles to
center with nobody out, the first
New York hits since they scored
their two runs in the second in-
ning.
The batter was Mickey Mantle,
trying to play despite a torn leg
muscle that forced him to hobble
around center field and shift to
right in the second .
Trusting Podres to keep the ball
low to Mantle, Alston let Podres
face the Yankee hitter.
Mantle worked the count to 1-1
and then lashed a rally-killing
double-play ball to shortstop Pee
Wee Reese . Unable to run with
his usual jackrabbit speed, Mickey
was easily doubled -at first.
Yanks Go Quietly
The Yanks went down quietly
in the eighth and were retired in
order in the ninth after Bill Skow-
ron opened with a single.
For today's fourth game at Eb-
betts Field, Alston has named Carl
Erskine, who managed an 11-8

mendous" move by Old Case when
Mickey hit a home run over the
393-foot mark into the centerfield
bleachers on his first time up in
the second inning.
But it was obvious he was hav-
ing trouble in the field. He switch-
ed to right in the second and had
no more defensive problems. But
his inability to run hurt the
Yanks.
The Dodger catcher wore the
dunce cap for a spell in the second.
Mantle's homer got one run back
and Skowron followed with a dou-
ble. Podres made Howard ground
to Robinson and whiffed Billy
Martin .
Error Allows Final Run
Rizzuto singled to left and Skow-
ron streaked toward home. Sandy
Amoros' peg to the plate had
Skowron out by at least three feet
I

but Campy, trying to make an
extra hard tag, lost the ball when'
Skowron, a former Purdue half-
back, lurched in. The ball rolled
to the Dodger dugout .
The Brooks lost little time rip-
ping into the wild Turley.
Pee Wee Reese walked with one
out in the first. After Duke Snider
struck out, Campanella hit his
home run.
With the score tied 2-2 in the
last of the second, Robinson sing-
led after one man was out. Turley
hit Amoros on the right thigh with
a pitch and Pordes' bunt down to-
ward third was fumbled by Turley;
loading the bases.
Then Turley lost all semblance
of control, walking Gilliam on a
3-1 pitch to move home Robinson
with the tie-breaking run. He
was finished for the day as Sten-
gel waved in Morgan.

NEW YORK (P)--Casey Stengel
said he made a last minute switch
to crippled Mickey Mantle in his
lineup yesterday at Mantle's re-
quest, but added that Mickey may
be back on the bench in the fourth
World Series game today.
"With the Dodgers pitching a
righthander, Carl Erskine, I may
go back to Irv Noren," the man-
ager of the New York Yankees
said. "Mickey would have to bat
lefthanded and he tells me his leg
bothers him more from that side."

Mantle, a switch-hitter who has
been on the sidelines with an in-
jured right leg, was a surprise
starter of the third game.
He lashed a 400-foot homer into
the centerfield stands in the sec-
ond inning, but hit into a double
play in the sixth inning with two
men on base and none out.
Stengel, however, was disin-
clined to blame the Yankees' de-
feat on any such development as
this.

FOUR MICHIGAN STATE senior standouts, who will be heavily counted upon today in the Spar-
tans' attempt to upset Michigan, chat with head Coach Duffy Daugherty. Kneeling at left is Cap-
tain Buck Nystrom, a guard, and at right is fullback Gerry Planutis. Standing, left to right, are
quarterback Earl Morrall and end John Lewis. All four are slated for the starting Spartan lineup.

Strong State Line May Slow
Michigan s Running Attack
(Continued from Page 1)

They arrived in Ann Arbor early
yesterday afternoon and went
through a short drill in the Mich-
igan Stadium, running mostly
signal plays and kicking practices.
The team has no injuries and is
expected to be in good physical
shape for today's game.
On the Michigan side, only one
player is out of action. Reserve
center Bill MacPhee is sidelined
for an indefinite period.
Barr, Branoff in Shape
The Wolverine lineup will be
the same as last week, with Mad-
dock starting at quarterback,
starting at quarterback, Tony

Branoff and Terry Barr at halfs,
and Baldacci at fullback. Barr
and Branoff were injured slightly
against Missouri, but both appear
in top form today.
The Wolverines have been work-
ing most of the week on weaknes-
ses shown in last week's rout of
Missouri, 42-7. Coach Ben Ooster-
baan and his aides, fearing the
worst from the rough Spartan line,
will probably furnish Michigan
fans with some new offensive
manuevers.
Many observers believe that this
game could set up a tremendous
display of offensive fireworks if
both teams live up to predictions.

NFL Grid
Champions
Face Tests
By The Associated Press
With a wave of upsets marking
the opening skirmishes in the
National Football League, suchj
big boys as the champion Cleve-
land Browns and the Detroit Lions
must come up with sharp rever-
sals of form this week or be al-
most counted out of the title pic-
ture before the season is barely
under way.
Two games are on tonight's
program, the Washington Red-
skins meeting the Eagles in Phil-
adelphia, and Detroit taking on
the Colts at Baltimore.
Sunday's schedule sees Cleve-
land playing the 49ers in San
Francisco, the New York Giants
and Cardinals at Chicago, the
Pittsburgh Stelers and Rams at
Los Angeles, and the Chicago
Bears and Packers at Green Bay.
Philadelphia, runnerup to
Cleveland in the eastern confer-
ence race last fall and a top con-
tender for the title this year, ap-
pears to pack too much artillery
for the Redskins .
Sparked by two fine passers,
AdriankBurk and Bobby Thoma-
son, the Eagles are favored by 11
Points over the Redskins, who up-
set Cleveland 27-17 last Sunday.
Philadelphiadwon its opener from
New York by the same score.
Detroit has never lost to the
Colts in four meetings and is a
7-point choice this time.

Odd Odds
BROOKLYN (P)-The Brook-
lyn Dodgers were made the 7
to 5 choice last night to win
the fourth game of the World
Series from the New York Yan-
kees today and square the com-
petition at two games each.
Meantime, odds on the Yan-
kees to win the series shortened
to 17 to 10.

CONCERTS

CHICAGO (P)-Iowa, the team
with the bone-crushing schedule,
and Wisconsin, the team that
could sneak home first, collide in
an important Big, Ten football
league opener before a sellout
53,359 at Madison, Wis., today.
This feature clash of a seven-
game program involving confer-
ence teams is rated a toss-up, al-
though Wisconsin is the host club
and in better physical shape than
Iowa.'
In two other conference con-
tests, Michigan takes its No. 2
AP national rating against invad-
ing Michigan State and Purdue
hopes Len Dawson will "thumb
out" Minnesota at Minneapolis.
Indiana Faces Irish
Of four non-loop tilts, Indiana
has the toughest assignment in
visiting Notre Dame. Ohio State
should prove a rude guest to Stan-
ford, while host Illinois and trav-
eling Northwestern are favored
over Iowa State and Tulane re-
spectively.
Outside the Big Ten, underdog
Tulsa makes a nocturnal raid
against Marquette at Milwaukee.
Hawkeyes Count on Backs
Iowa is pinning its hopes on
two of the Big Ten's best half-
backs, Earl Smith and Eddie Vin-

Gilliam with a broken leg has
hurt Iowa's own passing plans and
put a serious dent in a strong
Hawkeye line.
Swift-striking Michigan State,
a 20-13 victor over Indiana in last
week's lone conference game, may
cause powerful Michigan more
trouble than Missouri, clobbered
42-7 by the Wolverines in their
debut.
Purdue, whose Dawson missed
the Boilermakers' 14-7 squeeze
past College of Pacific because of
a jammed thumb, is rated two
touchdowns better than Minne-
sota.

record during the regular season
despite arm trouble.
Casey Stengel will send Don
Larsen after the fourth game, still
hoping to end matters with two
more victories at Brooklyn.
Robinson Outstanding
Jackie Robinson played magni-
ficent ball at third base for the
Dodgers, contributing seven as-
sists, only two short of the record.
Jackie drew a gasp from the fans
wlen he doubled to the left field
corner and sailed on to third when
Elston Howard threw to second
base, trying to nip him off the
bag.
Stengel surprised the custom-
ers -- and the Dodgers - by
starting Mantle in center field.
It looked like a typical "tre-
