NEW YORK (P)-Mickey Mantle
remained a doubtful starter andE
t h e weatherman predicted ac
"chance of showers" for openingt
game of the sixth New York-i
Yankee - Brooklyn Dodger WorldX
Series at Yankee Stadium.
Despite a gloomy statement
from Mantle that he was "not1
hopeful of playing in the series
-at least in the first game or
two at the stadium"-the Yanksr
remained a strong 13 to 10 favor-1
ite in man-to-man betting to take
the best-of-seven set. The open-1
ing game price was 6 to 5 with
the Yanks favored. ,
Mantle tested his injured right
leg in a brief workout at Ebbets
Field Tuesday. "It doesn't affect
my hitting at all," he said, "but]
it hurts when I try to run."
Stengel's Lineup Set
Manager Casey Stengel wasn't]
present at the Yank workout in
the enemy park but he has indi-]
cated he would use Irv Noren, a1
left-handed hitter, in center field
if the switch-hitting Mantle were
unavailable. Elston Howard prob-I
ably will be in left, and Phil Riz-
zuto at short, the other doubtful1
Stengel didn't attend the work-
out because he was to meet with
Commissioner Ford Frick, Brook-
lyn Manager Walter 'Alston and
the umpires in a review of series
regulations. The Dodgers worked
out in early afternoon at Yankee
The weatherman may have a
final say on this first game. He
forecast a chance of showers but
also observed that the rain might
drift north of New York and also
might come in the morning, too
early to interfere with the game,
scheduled for noon, EST.
In -the event of a postponement,
the entire schedule would be
pushed back with No. 1 tickets
good for Thursday at the Stadium.
Commissioner Frick would make
the decision of any postponement
after a conference with officials
of the home club, the Yanks in
Carl Furillo, Dodger right field-
er, missed his second straight
workout, due to a head cold and
Injured End Maentz lopes
To See Action Again Soon
The appearance of injured end
Tom Maentz in a sweat suit for
a light workout yesterday was the
brightest part of an otherwise
rainy. football practice.r
Maentz plans to confer with
doctors again, and there is a fair
chance that the husky and valu-
able junior may be back in action
much sooner than first expected.
His back injury, defined as a frac-
tured tranverse process of a verte-
bra, is not apparently going to
keep the receiver out all of the
six weeks first feared. The basic-
ally non-functioning part of the
bone varies in time needed to heal.
Aim For MSU
While only time will tell in the
case of Maentz, the Wolverines
are pointing towards the weekend
encounter with Michigan State.
Spirit seemed high.
Yesterday's drills concentrated
on having the reserves run -MSU
plays against the starting eleven.

earlier on blocking assignments,
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan had the
ends and the first three backfields
work on defending against pass
There will be a meeting of
all Intramural athletic mana-

uous wind sprints ended the prac-
The injury situation stands
about the same. Both Tony Bran-
off, and Terry Barr, who sus-
tained a minor head injury in the
Missouri game, were out running.
Sophomor center Bill MacPhee is
still a question mark with a bad
leg. Tackle Dave Owen and center
Jerry Goebel should both dress
for Saturday's game, although
neither have recovered fully from
a touch of sinus. However, the
club doctor has assured Alston
that Furillo will be ready to play
in the opener. Except for Clem
Labine, the relief pitcher, who had
a "slight touch , of virus," the
Dodgers were healthy. Labine
practiced and said he'd be ready.
The Dodgers can't understand
why the Yanks are favored be-
cause Stengel's pitching staff
leans heavily to the lefthanded
side and the Brooks have a repu-
tation for murdering lefties. In
fact, only one southpaw, Louis
Arroyo of St. Louis, went the
route against them all season
while they were romping to the
pennant by a 131/2 game margin.
However, the Dodgers were only
5-6 against lefties, counting re-
liefers and starters who didn't
Whitey Ford (18-7), a chunky
lefthander, works the opener for
the Yanks against Don Newcombe
(20-5), the jumbo righthander
who won 10 games in the spring
before losing. The Yanks will use
Tommy Byrne (16-5), another lef-
ty, against Billy Loes (10-4), a
second straight righthander, in
the second game.
Brooklyn, of course, never has
won a series, losing five to the
Yanks from 1941 through 1953 and
bowing to the Boston Red Sox in
1916 and Cleveland in 1920. The
Yanks, winning their 21st pen-
pant in 35 years, have a tremen-
dous 16-4 record in series competi-
tion. They haven't lost one since
1942 to St. Louis.

Michigan State had one consol-
ation today as the Spartans point-
ed toward their big one next Sat-
urday against Michigan.
No serious injuries showed up
after the Indiana game. Clarence
Peaks, versatile left half from
Flint, threw a scare into coaches
when he reported a pain in his
chest, but this showed up to be
a chest bruise and he should be
ready to go Saturday.
Right half Jim Wulff, who
bruised himself running into a
concreate wall shortely after he
made his 65-yard touchdown
sprint, also will be ready for act-
ion, as will spiked tackle Emery
