Yankees' Ford Holds Braves
To Five Hits in Series Opener

Unsung W. Johnson, 'The Other End';
Live Sequel to Kramer-Maentz Story

tant step for the Yankees. Most
observers figured 36-yr.-old Spahn
has to win two games to end the
Bomber's reign.
The Yanks took this operer in
stride, although they lost the serv-
ices of their slugging first baseman,
Bill Skowron, early in the game.
Spahn gave it the big try as the
only Milwaukee pitcher with pre-
vious series experience. But the
crafty veteran just didn't have
enough to match Ford. Manager
Fred Haney took him out in the
sixth after the Yanks had racked
Up seven of their nine hits. All
three runs were charged against
Spahn although the last one scored
after he had left the game.
It was a beautifully pitched,
scoreless battle for the first 4%
innings until Jerry Coleman, who

started at second'base instead of
young Bobby Richardson, came
through with his second hit - a
ground single to left past Eddie

Two infield outs had shoved
Coleman to third when Hank
Bauer bruised one of Spahn's.
pitches for a long double to right
center, letting Coleman romp
Fdrd had just escaped after some
anxious moments in the top of the
fifth due to a dropped throw by
Elston Howard at first base on a
sure-fire double play. Howard a
catcher-outfielder who never had
played first in the majors until last
Friday in Boston, had taken over
in the third after Skowron had re-
injured his back running to first
base in the first inning.
Wes Covington's single, Howard's
error and a walk to Spahn put
Ford in trouble. Covington had
been wiped out on Crandall's boun-
cer to Gil McDougald but Crandall
was safe on the error. When Ford
walked Spahn on four pitches,
Milwaukee had men on first and
second with two out but Red
Schoendienst rapped sharply to
Andy Carey for a force on Cran-
dall at third to end the inning.
The Yanks ripped into Spahn in
the sixth and chased him. With
one out, Howard grounded a single
to center. A walk to Berra on a 3-1
pitch brought Manager Fred Haney
ito the mound to talk with Spahn.
He stayed with Spahn.
Carey took one called strike,
half attempting a bunt, and sing-
led sharply to center, scoring
Howard. Berra went to third.
Haney came out again, this time
to take Spahn with him.
Ernie Johnson, a sidearming
right hander, came from the bull
pen to face Coleman. With the in-
field pulled in tight, Coleman
dumped a perfect squeeze bunt to-
ward Johnson. The pitcher, never
making a move toward the plate,
whirled and threw to first in time

to get Coleman as Berra came
Ford, who had pitched himself
in and out of trouble all afternoon
due to his wildness, finally was
scored on in the seventh.
Covington, a left-handed hitter,
doubled to the far corner in left
and scored on Schoendienst's two-
out single to center. With Logan
representing the potential tying
run at the plate, Ford caught the
shortstop fishing on a low outside
pitch for a third strike.
From that moment on, Ford was
untouchable. He retired the last
seven batters in succession to win
his fifth series game in eight at-
Encouraged by the success of
Ford, .Manager Casey Stengel

MILWAUKEE R") - Rather
than be charged with treason in
this baseball-mad city, the man-
ager of the Milwaukee Journal
employes' c a f e t e r i a hastily
changed yesterday's luncheon
menu from "Yankee bean soup"
to "Braves bean soup."

Last year Michigan was blessed
with two ends of All-American
stature, Ron Kramer and "the
other end," as many fans referred!
to Tom Maentz.
This year the Wolverines are
again the proud possessors of sev-
eral fine ends, maybe not All-
Americans, but good solid ends all
the same.
'The Other End'
Most of the ballyhoo this season
has concerned Gary Prahst and
his understudy, Charles Teuscher.
Sports writers have rolled off such
reams of praise that the tag of
"the other end" is about to be
again hung on the other end, Walt
Ironically, Johnson spends most

of his time at right end, the same
position held down by Maentz.
Johnson is 6'2", 215; Maentz was
6'3", 210.
Johnson came to Ann Arbor with
fine references. He was an All-
State quarterback at Dearborn
High School as well as an All-
State basketball player.
Shift to End
The shift to the end'position has
not been an easy one but Johnson
has surprised many observers by
not only making the switch, but
also by being so successful as to
be first string.
During spring practice many
sideline watchers doubted his
ability to make the switch. John-
son, however, kept plugging and
erased their doubts.
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan best

describes Johnson "... a conscien-
tious ball player . . * constantly
Johnson won a letter last year
on his defensive play, this year
Oosterbaan says, "Johnson is a
solid blocker as well as .a strong
anchor on the defensive line."
Blocking Ability
Johnson's blocking ability will
come in handy for the Wolverines
this season. If Michigan sticks to
its practice of past years and de-
ploys its line unbalanced to the
right, Johnson at right end will
quite often find a big hulking
tackle playing over him.
His ability to move the tackle
could set Jim Pace or one of the
other halfbacks free for a long
gain around end.

Gagnier Chosen To Head
Nine-Man Cheering Squad

One of the most colorful parts
of the Michigan football extrava-
ganza every fall is the Wolverine
cheerleadering squad.
This season, as in the past, the
M' cheerleaders will add glamour
to huge Michigan Stadium.
Cheerleading advisor Newt Loken
selected his nine-man troop last
week which includes Frank Stark-
weather, Jim Hayslett, Phil Noggle,
Dick Kimball, Terry Dierdorff,
Dana Larson, Ed Gagnier, Tom
Taylor, and Bill Skinner.
Gagnier Leads
Gagnier is the head cheerleader
and Larson is his assistant. Gag-
nier, Hayslett, and Kimball are
also members of Loken's Michigan
gymnastic team, while Noggle and
Skinner were on the freshman gym
team last winter.
Loken states that the group has
been working diligently for three
weeks, and that they will be ready
to perform -their diversified feats
beginning this Saturday.
same as in the past. They will per-
form on the trampolets, do tumb-
ling on the field and flips off the
walls, plus various circus stunts
including a unicycle gnd juggling

Gagnier says there will be some
new entertainment this year. As
head cheerleader, the slim senior
is a veteran of the 1956 Olympics
and one of the best collegiate gym-
nasts in the country.
Seek Student Spirit
The cheerleaders will work in
close cooperation with the Michi-
gan band and other campus organ-
izations to get the greatest spirit
possible from the students to back
the team.
Gagnier states that the troop
will be going to the Illinois game
and hopes to travel to Minnesota,

point passing of LaVercombe
turned the contest into a 26-0 Sig
Ep rout.
LaVercombe was responsible for
all the points as he threw four
touchdown passes as well as two
passes for extra points. Rich
Crawford caught two and Ed Ny-
berg and Chuck Turner each tal-
lied once. The extra points were
also caught by Crawford and Ny-
Conybeara Leads Attack
Conybeara had similar success,
throwing for three touchdowns
and three extra points, while
leading Chi Phi to a 27-0 victory
over Zeta Beta Tau. Conybeara
hit his receivers consistently. Tom
Gaffield caught two touchdown
passes and two extra points while
Conybeara's third TD pass was
snared by Ham Robishawd. Chi
Phi's other touchdown was scored
by Dick Schmuck who took a
pitchout from Conybeara and
went half the length of the field.
Two long runbacks of inter-
cepted passes were all Sigma Chi
needed to defeat Phi Sigma Kap-
pa by the score of 14-8. On the
second play of the game Bob
Young intercepted a pass on his
own goal line and returned it the
length of the field for a Sigma
Chi score. Three plays later his
teammate Ken Tippery repeated
the maneuver and Sigma Chi held
onto the lead the rest of the way.
Norm Krecke scored three
touchdowns as Delta Chi rolled
over a relatively weak Phi Kappa
Psi team, 21-0.
Theta Chi with Jim Beck throw-

ing three touchdown passes hand-
ily whipped Zeta Psi by the count
of 21-6.
