Mantle, Skowron Still Uncertain;
Braves Ready for Today's Battle

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK--Both Mickey
Mantle and Bill Skowron are ten-
tative New York Yankee starters
in today's World Series opener
against the fit and ready Milwau-
kee Braves at Yankee Stadium.
With comfortable weather pre-
dicted, a crowd of about 70,000 is
expected to jam the big ball park.
Game time is 12 noon.
Big Question
The physical condition of Man-
tle and Skowron continues to be
the most important question as
both managers have named their
starting pitchers. Whitey Ford
(11-5) of the Yanks and Warren
Spahn (21-11) of the Braves will
hook up in a battle of lefthanders.
Most observers figure - Braves
will need at least two victories
from Spahn if they are going to
upset the Yanks, who go.into the
series as 8$ to 5 favorites.
On the basis of reports from his
ailing stars, Stengel named both
Mantle and Skowron to his prob-
able lineup with certain reserva-
tions.
"Not Perfect"
"They're not 100 per cent," said
Stengel. "Boti are willing to start
but they don't know how far . .ey
can go. If I find out today that
they can't play, I'll demand an-
other man. Once you start a series
you can't ask for any replace-
Tents."
Stengel hedged in his starting
lineup on two positions-left field
and second base.
More Questions
In left field he said it would be
either Tony Kubek, his 20-year-old
rookie, or catcher-outfielder-first

baseman Elston Howard. If Skow-
ron can't play, Howard might go
to first. At second, Stengel said he
still was undecided between the
veteran Jerry Coleman and 22-
year-old Bobby Richardson.
Braves Set
Haney reported his Braves in
fine condition for their first series
test although his club had been
hobbled by injuries during most
of the season..
Haney named his usual lineup
and batting order.

Social fraternity "A" football
action started with a bang yester-
day as eleven games were run off
at South Ferry Field.
Lambda Chi Alpha's squad rolled
up an impressive 27-0 win over
Phi Kappa Tau. The winners were
sparked by shifty quarterback Fran
Lemire, an all I-M ballplayer for
the past two years.
Phi Kappa Sigma rolled to a
19-0 over hapless Psi Upsilon,
scoring on a pass play from Ernie
Myers to Don Kolcheff what
proved to be the winning touch-
down.
Pass Interception
A pass interception by Nat Fried-
man set up Phi Sigma Delta's first
touchdown in a 13-0 victory over
Theta Delta Chi. Friedman made
a good catch of Mike Silber's long
pass for the score. An insurance
TD was added when Shel Glass
ran back an interception late in
the second half.
Close Contest
Delta Tau Delta edged past Pi
Lambda Phi, 14-12 as Jack De-
marest passed for two Delt touch-
downs, the first grabbed by Pete
Gell, the second going to Paul
Jacobson. The Pi Lam machine
was led by Jack Roth who scored
one TD himself and passed for the
other.
Safeties played a big part in
two games on yesterday's I-M
scene. In the first case Delta Sigma
Phi turned the two points into a
margin of victory, defeating Kappa

'Grid Picks'
This Week?
Now that you've made your
wagers and arranged your cuts in
order to see the World Series, why
don't you take a minute or two
and enter this week's Grid Picks
jContest.
If you think last week's games
were hard, well, maybe you're
right. It seems our consensus had
only 11 right out of twenty.
Same Rules
For this week's contest we. have
different games but the same rules.
Select your choices, predict the
score of the Michigan game and
have your entry postmarked or at
The Daily, 420 Maynard, before 5
p.m. Friday.
For your convenience, we have
mimeographed sheets with the
games on them which you can fill
out at the main desk of The Daily.
THIS WEEK'S GAMES

Sigma 8-6. However, it was a bad
break for Theta Xi who bowed to
Alpha Tau Omega, 2-0.
Overtime Victory
Sigma Alpha Mu and Chi Psi
played to a 0-0 standstill during
the regulation time, but the Sam-
mies managed to win it in the
eight-play overtime period. Tau
Delta Phi edged Beta Theta Pi,
7-6, an another overtime contest.
In yesterday afternoon's "B"
team play, Phi Delta Theta scored
a late-game TD to sink Lambda
Chi Alpha, 13-6, and Sigma Phi
Epsilon downed Phi Kappa Psi,
27-0.
In the only forfeit of the after-
noon, Delta Upsilon gained a vic-
tory from Sigma Phi.

FRED JULIAN
... even with Myers

It appeared thataeveryone was
doing his best, and all the coaches
seemed quite satisfied with what
was going on.
Center Jerry Goebel, who was
out Monday with a foot injury,
returned to action to give the
squad perfect attendance in the
"Indian summer" weather.
Linemen Look Good
Jack Blott's linemen looked good
as they took to the blocking dum-
mies like ducks to water. There
were the usual number of sponges
decorating their limbs, but every-
one performed as though he was
ready for anything or anyone.
The reserves wore white jerseys
with black numerals similar to
those which visiting Georgia will
wear this Saturday.

By The Associated Press
Two behemoths of the Midwest,
Michigan State and Minnesota
moved up as chief contenders for
Oklahoma's No. 1 college football
position yesterday.
Oklahoma, idle last week and
facing a mild test Saturday in
Iowa State, held its place atop
the Associated Press weekly poll
but saw its top heavy favoritism
sharply cut by the boys from the
Big Ten.
The top 10 with first place votes
in parentheses: 1. Oklahoma (81,
2. Michigan State (24), 3. Minne-
sota (10), 4. Duke (8), 5. Texas

10. Michigan.
Giants on Move
NEW YORK - Horace Stone-
ham, president of the New York

Red Sox for the purchase of San
Francisco's Pacific Coast League
franchise.

Sooners Dominate Big Eight Loop

I

(This is the fifth of a series of
articles dealing with various foot-
ball. conferences throughout the na-
tion. Today's article deals with The
Big Eight.)
By SI COLEMAN7
This past summer the Big Sev-
en Conference added a new mem-.
ber and three squads acquired

new coaches, but the playing sit-
uation remains unchanged - it
is still Oklahoma on top.
With 41 consecutive victories to
their credit, the Sooners are
picked by many to maintain their
reputation from last year as the
best team in the country.
An indication of Oklahoma's

strength is that the toughest
game on the Sooner's schedule
this season was to have been their
opener with Pittsburgh. Oklaho-
ma won, 26-0.
Colorado, Kansas and Missouri
will probably furnish whatever
competition Oklahoma may meet.
The Buffaloes of Colorado lost
seven of their 1956 regulars, but
despite this they are expected to
be strong again.
Big Year?
Kansas has 27 lettermen re-
turning, and Coach Chuck Math-
er should have the best squad of
his tenure.
Don Farout who invented the
split-T has retired at Missouri
and Frank Broyles, fresh from
Georgia Tech has succeeded him.
New Coach
Nebraska also will be venturing
forth into the 1957 season under
a new coach. He is Bill Jennings
who takes over for Pete Elliott.
Kansas State lacks the depth
to make it a serious contender.
Coach Bus Mertes does have nine
first stringers returning but re-
serve strength definitely is needed.
New Member
Iowa State is the third team
that will have a new coach this
year. He is Jim Myers who played
his football at Tennessee.
The new team in the league,
but one that does not become an
official member until 1960, is
Oklahoma State.
