MEXICO CITY (P)-Hurricane Janet, the season's most vicious

a toll of 350 to 400 lives.
There were reports 150 were found dead in the ruins of Chetumal,

There may still be hope in Flat-
bush for the futile Brooks but the
record books carry the cold facts
that only one team in all series
history ever hasbounced back to
win after losing the first two. That
team was the 1921 New York
Giants, and they had a best-of-
nine series in which to recover and
top the Yankees' first pennant
In sharp contrast to Wednes-
day's booming opener when five
home runs sailed through the mug-
gy air, the Yanks manager to win
this one on eight singles, five of
them bunched in the fourth in-
ning. Four of the singles and all
the Yankee runs came after two
were out in the fourth.
Mantle on Bench
The Yankee victory was accom-
plished with Mickey Mantle, their
slugging ace, still riding the
bench due to a leg njury and with
HankBauer out of action from
the second inning on due to a pull-
ed muscle in his right thigh.

Trailing 1! 0 as they came to bat
in the fourth, the Yanks greeted
Loes with a single by Gil Mc-

Gil Hodges came up with Nor-

Then it happened. Yogi Berra

smashed a single to left, scoring
its last advisory on the storm.
Janet moved inland over the
Mexican coast about noon yester-
day, skirting the barricaded city

The traditional pep rally pre-
ceding the Michigan-Michigan
State football game will be held
from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to-

Lack of football tickets for the
Michigan-Michigan State game
has prevented a small segment of
late-registering students from be-
ing able to attend the game.
Students were able to claim
ticket booklets up until last Mon-
day which had been set as the
deadline by the Athletic Depart-
ment. But because of the popular-
ity of the State game, tickets could
not be held out past that time.
However, according to Don Weir,
ticket and business manager for
the Board in Control of Inter-
collegiate Athletics, late-register-'
ing students may obtain tickets
for all games but thetcontest on
"We were given an estimation
by the Recorder's Office of the
number of student tickets that
would be needed this year. Be-
cause of the unexpectedly high
enrollment we ran out of student
seats the noon of the Missouri1
game," Weir said.1
He added that all students were
admitted tokthisrgame whether
they had tickets or not, but that
there were no seats left for the
game this Saturday.
Weir mentioned that there were'
16,500 student tickets last year as
contrasted to upwards of 18,400
this year. The number of re-
duced program and spouse tickets
has greatly increased, and are
difficult to determine beforehand,

POLITICS AND SAFETY:
State Road Proposal Evokes Strong Comment
By LEW HAMBURGER
Thecontroversial problem of

into political circles in Michigan.
State officials are currently
pondering possibilities of present-

speed limit on Michigan roads to
the legislature's special session

whether any actions would be
taken during the special session.

can be imposed by zones, without
necessitating a blanket," Kohl

opposing the implementation of
blanket limits is the fact that
these call attention to maximum
speeds, rather than safest speeds.

limits will often exceed the speed
at which he can control his car.
This is especially true of hazard-
