Yankees Top Brooklyn
On Slaughter's Homer


The Big One'-Lost
These are the ones that are tough to write about. Michigan lost
yesterday. It was the big game-with the squad from Eastt
Lansing. The home team was magnificent, but it left the field second'
Michigan should .still rumble on to a fine season, but this
indelible score will remain throughout: visitors 9, Michigan 0. The
visitors wore green and white jerseys. B
Michigan threw the book at the Spartans, but the Spartans had]
all the answers. Duffy Daugherty's boys, outplayed in the first half,
refused to let their goal line be touched. The second half came .. .
the Wolverines made a couple of mistakes ... and that was all that
State needed.t
Daugherty was all smiles in the dressing room. "I wanted to'
win that one more than the Rose Bowl," he admitted. "That was thej
big one." Daugherty, happily munching on an apple, spoke freely
after the game was over. This was it. He had just been named the]
proud possessor of a successful season.-
The MSU coach was quick to ex-
tol the merits of the team he had
just conquered. "They (Michigan)
are better than they were last
year. We beat a truly fine Michi-
gan squad. They should go a long1
way." Daugherty sounded very=
"The game was hard fought,
} } but it was clean," continued the
winning coach. "You could tell itt
was a clean game because of thet
comparatively few penalties." Thei
statistics bear him out. In fact,
only one 15-yd. penalty was called,
against State for a personal foul.-
Daugherty singled out tackle Pat
Burke for his inspired play. Burkei
didn't start becau se of a leg injury,
but made his presence known as
soon as he entered the game.
': Another beaming face belonged
to Biggie Munn, MSU's athletic
boss. "It was easy to name the
MSU'S DAUGHERTY turning points," he mused, "the
first was on that intercepted pass.
. .:the big one'Then came the fumble."
Munn, along with some other observers, thought that Michigan's
limited substituting in the first half paved the way for Michigan
State. "We substituted much more freely in that half," he said, "and
were fresher after, the intermission."
Oosterbaan, holding court across the hall, was his suual calm
self. He praised his players, especially center Mike Rotunno and
back Terry Barr. Rotunno, the converted end, was a standout at his
new spot yesterday. He played the entire 60 minutes. Barr played a
fine game, even though he played the second half with a head bruise.
'No Alibis for Bennie ...'
rphe gray-haired Michigan coach didn't alibi. He never does. "They're
a real good team," he admitted. "You have to give them credit. They're
real alert. Notice our short jump passes? Pretty successful. We
practiced them all week. But the other guys finally intercepted one,
and that started It. That's alertness."
Sophomore fullback John Herrnstein was feeling as bad as a
player can feel. It was his intercepted pass that was converted into a
field goal and it was his fumble that was turned into a touchdown,
but there will be better days for Herrnstein. He showed an awful
lot of promise. He was a terror in the first half, and might have
continued ripping up yardage in the second half had he not been
slowed up by an injury.
The big question, of course, is Ron Kramer's Injury. The huge
end lived up to his all-America reputation until he was stopped by
an agonizing injury to his left hand-the same one he injured last
week against UCLA. The x-rays will tell the story.
So that was it. It was one of those Saturdays. Your team loses to
its biggest rival. The weather must have been created by Charles
Addams. It's a long walk back. But there will be some happier Satur-
days this year, unless I miss my guess.

NEW YORK (M--Enos Slaugh-
ter, the ever-hustling 40-year-old
"country boy," helped Whitey Ford
boost the New York Yankees back
into the World Series yesterday
with a three-run homer in the
sixth inning for a 5-3 victory over
Brooklyn after two staggering de-
The former St. Louis Cardinal,
who was reacquired from Kansas
City on waivers Aug. 25, slammed
a Roger Craig pitch into the lower
right-field seats with Hank Bauer
and Yogi Berra on base and two
out in the sixth. Slaughter's
homer was his seventh series hit,
boosting his average to a shiny
React to Crowd
The Yankees, who played in a
dreamy daze for two days in
Brooklyn, reacted violently to the
bumper crowd of 73,977 on their
return to Yankee Stadium.
An eye-catching relay from
Hank Bauer to Billy Martin to
Andy Carey cut down Carl Furillo
trying to stretch a double into a
triple, snuffing out the Dodgers'
last threat to Ford in the ninth.
Ford, who lasted only three in-
nings in the opener defeat by old
Sal Maglie, curled his curve past
the Dodgers for a eight-hitter, his
fourth series triumph. The chunky
little lefthander walked only two
and struck out seven, fanning the
feared Duke Snider three times.
Slaughter Applies Clincher
It was Ford who finally stopped
Brooklyn's sluggers but it was
Slaughter who really finished off
the Dodgers. Hero of the 1946
Series when he dashed three bases
on a routine single into right cen-
ter to give the Cards the champ-
ionship over the Boston Red Sox,

. . .the big hit
Slaughter continued his terrific
Ford and Craig were locked, 1-1,
rafter theytraded runs in the sec-
ond, until the Dodgers finally
opened up a one-run lead in the
sixth on Pee Wee Reese's triple
past Mickey Mantle and Snider's
deep sacrifice fly to Mantle.
The huge crowd was the largest
to see a Series game in New York
since Oct. 5, 1947.
Bauer Starts Rally
Bauer, hitless in two previous
trips, looped a single int6 short
left field. Joe Collins, instead of
bunting with the tying run on first
and nobody out, swung at the first
pitch and flied to Snider.
Then Mantle, whose only hit was
a drag-bunt single in the first,
popped high to Gil Hodges.
Berra kept it alive with a single
to right-center.
Then Slaughter, the leading
Yankee series hitter, strode to the
plate. Swinging on the 3-1 pitch,
