Asian Flu Threatens Grid Squads;
Iish Army Renew Rivalry Today

Ex-'M' Gridder, Barr,

By The Associated Press
Many college football coaches
kept their eyes on infirmary bul-
letin boards Friday as the Asian,
flu bug sent players to bed and
threatened to put several teams
in low gear for this week's games.
While there were some can-
cellations of games, most major
teams were reported ready to car-
ry on, the most notable example
being Notre Dame.-
The Fighting Irish, had six
regulars including star halfback
Aubrey Lewis out during the week
but should be back today. A crowd
of > over 100,000 is expected at
' Philadelphia for the resumption,
of the Army-Notre IDame series,
broken off .10 years ago mainly
because of too great enthusiasm
by tle fans.

By The Associated' Press
Wisconsin's Fadgers, a run-away
victor" over Marquette, and West
away victor over Marquette, and
Virginia, makd their Big Ten de-
but against a winless, but tough
Purdue club at Lafayette, Indiana.
The Badgers, who are rated now
as a surprising dark horse, rolled
up 105 points in their first tWo
games. This represents more points
than they scored in a nine game
season, last year.
However, Wisconsin: will start
five sophomores,' and its high-
geai'ed attack is expected to meet
stiff resistance from the rugged
Purdue line. The same line pushed
Minnesota all over the field last
week, but Purdue, was f i n a 11 y
edged,. 21-17.
Ohio State-Illinois
Ohio State is rated as a one
touchdown favorite, against Illi-
nois, in'a regionally televised game.

Northwestern eleven they meet
Saturday at Evanston "is a better
football team than the one that
tied you 0-0 on your own field last
With t h e s e words, Warmath
summed up the Minnesota-North-
western game. Rated a 10-point
favorite, Minnesota has only to
remember last year, when a weak-
er Wildcatteamknocked them
out of the Rose Bowl.
The nation will be focusing its
eyes on second string quarterback
Dick Larsen, of the Gophers, who
handled the Minnesota teom beau-
tifully, when All-American candi-
date, Bobby Cox ran out of' steam,
against Purdue.

straight wins, faces hapless In-

victory over Penn State; is listed
as a slight favorite. The outcome
may well depend on how quickly
the Irish players have recovered
from the flu.
In this battle of eastern lead-
ers, the winner will most probably
go on to become the mythical
eastern champion.
Oklahoma, the nation's No. 1
team, reported its All-America
halfback candidate .Clendon
Thomas was expected to see some
action against Texas in the Cot-
ton Bowl at Dallas.
Thomas spent three days in bed
this week. Coach Darrell Royal
said 'mostof the Texas team had
the "sniffles" during the week,
but he expected most of the men
to be ready.
The Sooners who smothered
Pitt. and Iowa State in their first
two starts, generally are regarded'
as too strong, too swift and too
well-coached for their opponents.
But there's just an outside pos-
sibility that the combination of
flu and Texas could stop Okla-,
homa at Dallas.

The Milwaukee Braves in theirl
first World Series, as redresenta-
tives of "Sudsville," brought to the
West the first World Champion-
ship since 1948 when the Cleveland
Indians downed Boston, who' are
predecessors of the present Mil-
waukee nine.
They accomplished this feat in a
pressure-laden seven game series
which the bookies and sportswrit-
ers predicted would go to the
perennial champions, the Newv
York Yankees.
They reasoned that since Mil-
waukee was new t o Series play,
except for Red Schoendienst, War-
ren Spahn, and Del Rice, and the
Yankees made a habit of partici-
pating in the post season classic
that the Braves would fold under
the terriffic presure.

hews, Wes Covington aid Johnny

a lackadaisical manner, which al-

lowed with singles that spelled de-
feat for-the Yanks.

When the experts start looking
for a turning point in the World
Series of this year they will prob-
ably point to the fourth game
which the Braves won in ten inn-
ings. If they had lost it the Yanks
would have had an almost insur-
mountable 3-1lead in games.
In the ninth inning the Braves
blew a 4-1 lead on a two out, '3-2
count, three run homer by Elston
Howard. In the 10th. inning the
Yanks came back with another run
and at that point it looked like
Milwaukee would have to wait un-
til next year.
In the last of the 10th the
Braves established once and for all
that they weren't going to choke
up. In. a thrilling climax that had
Milwaukee fans goggled-eyed, the
Braves fought back fQr three runs
with the big blow, a two run homer
by Mathews.
With that psychological lift Mil-
waukee went bn to make history.
