Bob Friend, ace right hander of
the Pirate mound staff, went all
the way for the red-hot sixth-
place club. He gave up 10 hits,
three of them in the first inning

a three-run lead. Then he was in
command throughout until he
gave up the homer to Hodges.

slugged Detroit by a 14-11 count,

nine regulars, were stricken Sun-

urday's UCLA encounter.
The squad held a light workout,
following its game-length scrim-
mage last Saturday. Today's drills
featured defensive practice with
the reserves running Uclan plays
against the first and second

pattern, but with a balanced line
instead of the usual unbalanced
one. Most of the practice yesterday
was devoted to checking defensive
alignments against such an of-

of action with injured legs, re-!

Favored Teams Upset in First Gamines
Of New Collegiate Football Campaign

College football had its first big
Saturday this past weekend and
that unpredictable character, Mr.
Upset, picked right up where he
left off last November.
There were four "big ones" in
the way of upsets last weekend
and numerous other close calls.
The big shocker came late Satur-
day night when over the teletype
clicked the words, "Final, SMU
19, Notre Dame 13." The details

little to go with their stellar quar-

not the case last year, as the de-
fense was kept honest by the bull-
like charges of Don Schaefer from
It appears that Notre Dafne will
miss him more than was antici-
pated in the pre-season polls.
Irish Lack Depth
The Irish line lacks depth and
SMU was quick to capitalize on
this factor. Coach Terry Brennan
has two weeks to smooth over the
rough spots and patch up the gaps
before meeting his next foe, In-
diana, on Oct. 6.
The Syracuse victory over Mary-
land must also rule as an upset,I
even though the Orange are one
of the top teams in the East this
fall. Maryland was thought to be
The Terrapins were bewildered
without their star quarterback,
Frank Tamburello and never got
started. Syracuse, on the other
hand, shifted its star back Jimmy

Brown into high gear and that
was the game.
The Terps will attempt to
bounce back against Wake Forest
this week, while Syracuse tackles
a tough Pittsburgh eleven.
Duke Falls
The third highly rated team to
bite the dust was Duke - shutout

Devils were picked to battle Mary-

Pittsburgh had a close call, be-
ing outclassed and outplayed by
a surprisingly strong West Vir-
ginia team.
The Panthers, however, were
able to pull themselves together
long enough to convert two Moun-
taineer fumbles into scores and
hang on to win by one point, 14-13.
There were several games that
resulted true to form, such as Mis-

At next Saturday's football game, while you are sitting
in your choice student's seat on the ten-yard line, won't
you give a thought to Alaric Sigafoos?
Who, you ask, is Alaric Sigafoos? Come closer, sit
down, light a Philip Morris, savor that natural tobacco
goodness, sigh contentedly, cross your fat little legs, and
Alaric Sigafoos (1868-1934) started life humbly on a
farm near Thud, Kansas. His mother and father, both
named Ralph, were bean-gleaners, and Alaric became a
bean-gleaner too. But he soon tired of the work and went
to Memphis where he got a job with a logging firm. Here
the ex-bean-gleaner worked as a stump-thumper. Then
he drifted to Texas where he tidied up oil fields (pipe-
wiper). Then ,to Arizona where he strung dried fruit
(fig-rigger). Then to Virginia where he was a research
assistant (book-looker). Then to Long Island where he
dressed poultry (duck-plucker). Then to Califdrnia where
he lectured young women who were about to get married
(bride-chider). Then to Minnesota where he cut up frozen
lakes (ice-slicer). Then to Nevada where he determined
the odds in a gambling house (dice-pricer). Then to
Milwaukee where he pasted camera lenses together
Finally he went to Omaha where he got a job in a
tannery, beating pig-hides until they were soft and supple
(hog-flogger). Here he found happiness at last.

Why, you ask, did he find happiness at last as a hog-
flogger? Light another firm and fragrant Philip Morris,
taste that true tobacco flavor, puff, relax, let sweet lassi-
tude possess your limbs, and listen.
Next door to the hog-floggery was an almond grove
owned by a girl named Chimera Emrick. Chimera was
pink and white and marvelously hinged, and Alaric was
hopelessly in love the moment he clapped eyes on her.
Each day he came to the almond grove to woo Chimera,
but to no avail. He tried with all his vigor and guile,
but she, alas, stayed cool.
Then one day Alarie got a brilliant idea. It was the
day before the annual Omaha Almond Festival. On this
day, as we all know, every almond grower in Omaha
enters a float in the big parade. The floats always consist
of large cardboard almonds hanging from large cardboard
almond trees.
Alaric's inspiration was to stitch pieces of pigskin
together and inflate them until they looked like big,
plump almonds. "These sure beat skinny old cardboard
almonds," said Alari to himself. "Tomorrow they will
surely take first prize for Chimera, and she will be mine !"
Early the next morning Alaric came running to
Chimera with his inflated pigskin almonds, but she, alas,
told him she was not entering a float that year. In fact,
she had just sold her almond grove and was moving East
to try out with the Boston Red Sox.
Alaric, upon hearing these glum tidings, flew into a
violent rage. He started kicking his pigskin almonds-all
over the place. And who should be walking by at that-
very instant but Abner Doubleday!
Mr. Doubleday, who had invented baseball some years
