Now that the Yankees have just
about done the usual, clinched an-
other American League pennant,
attention is turning to who will be
the Most Valuable Player and
Pitcher of the Year in the Ameri-
can League.
The most likely candidates for
the MVP award, according to most
experts, are Ted Williams, Mickey
Mantle and Roy Sievers, Williams
is leading the majors with a .380
batting average. He is second to
Sievers in the AL with 36 home
runs, and he has batted in 84
runs.
Mantle is second to Williams,
with a .367 batting average, and'
he has hit 34 home runs and
driven in 93 runs.
Sievers is having his best year
in the majors. He is leading the
American League with 41 home

runs and 111 RBI's. He is hitting
over .300.
Of these three, many observeirs
tab Williams as the most likely to
win the coveted MVP honor, al-
though Siaeversdis also being pick-
ed frequently.
Then, too, writers point out that
Mantle is having a good year but
the other two stars are having
better ones and in addition have
been more valuable to their teams.
Jim Bunning of the Detroit
Tigers seems to many the best
choice for Pitcher of the Year in
the American League. He has a
19-7 record and a 2.36 ERA, which
is second only to Gerry Staley who
has pitched 149 innings less.
Billy Pierce, Bobby Schantz and
Bob Turley also have been men-
tioned as in the running for the
award.

MASS MEETING

By STEVE SALZMAN
Powerful Oklahoma, last year's
number one team, marched with
terrifying power across the Pitts-
burgh goal line four times in
handing Pittsburgh a 26-0 defeat.
Before a sellout crowd of 59,000
Oklahoma scored once in the sec-
ond period, and three times in the
third period. Oklahoma's first
touchdown climaxed a 51 yard
drive, with a pass play from Jackie
Sandefer to end Joe Rector.
In the third period, Halfback
Clendon Thomas, the Sooners'
newest candidate for All-American
honors, slashed 13 yards for a
touchdown.
The last two touchdowns came
on pass plays from Carl Dodd to
Don Stiller, and from Dave Baker
to Dick Carpenter.
Three Touchdowns Nullified
On three occasions, Oklahoma
drove across the Pitt goal line only
to have the plays called back
because of penalties.
Pitt, the 1957 Gator Bowl team,
whose line averages 225 lbs., only
made two serious attempts to
score. In the second period the
Panthers drove 65 yards, only to
lose the ball on the Oklahoma 19
by a pass interception. In the final
period, the Panthers got to the
Oklahoma 16, only to lose the ball
on downs.
This marked Oklahoma's 41st
victory since the second game of
the 1953 season when Pitt tied
them, 7-7.
Georgia Tech found themselves
a poised and brilliant ball handler
in sophomore quarterback Fred
Braselton, as he led his team to a
13-0 victory over Kentucky.
Braselton engineered both touch-
downs, while figuring in the scor-
ing of the final clincher. In the
third period, he passed from the

six yard line to end Jerry Nabors
in the end zone.
Stan Flowers, a Memphis senior
and the only non-soph in Tech's
young backfield, got the first
score late in the first period, pow-
ering over from the seven yard
line.
Versatile Navy crushed Boston
College, 46-6, as the Midshipmen
launched their football year spur-
red by quarterback Tom Forrestal
and Captain Ned Oldham.
Oldham contributed two touch-
towns and three conversions as
well as vital yardage on marches
to key the swift-striking Navy
winged-T offense.
Seven Completions
Forrestal, the slick field general
from Cleveland, completed seven
of 10 passes for 143 yards and two
touchdowns in the first 17 minutes
of the contest.
Boston College scored 12 sec-
onds after the second period began
on a 93-yard scoring pass play
from quarterback Don Allard to
halfback Tom Joe Sullivan. Allard
stepped into his end zone to hurl
the ball. Sullivan grabbed it away
from Oldham at midfield and
raced the rest of the distance.
Detroit's Titans handed Mar-
quette its 11th straight defeat,
14-0, in a penalty-marred contest
in Detroit. The Titans, who have
handed out 65 football scholar-
ships in the past two years, saw
some of them pay off, as they
scored once in the second, and
once in the third periods. Their
defense was exceptional, never al-
lowing Marquette to threaten seri-
ously.
Marquette has not been able to
win since late in the 1955 cam-
paign, and Saturday could pene-
trate beyond the Detroit 20-yd.
line only once.

Professional engineers say Dietzgen's new slide rules
embody the greatest advances in design in more than
a quarter centvq. Dietzgen's exclusive Micromatic
Adjustment permits perfect alignment of the scales at
oil times. Simple resetting of one screw does it. The
end plates need not be loosened; fit and action of the
slide is never disturbed.
Dietzgen's automatic slide tension insures perfect
slide action wherever and whenever these rules are
used. Slides cannot bind or stick-nor become loose
so errors may result from accidental slide movement.
These are truly great slide rules. Important new scales
added. New super-safe carrying case. See them at
your Dietzgen dealer today.
