FRITDAY, JULY 30, 1943


Michigan State College Decides

To Resume Grid Practice


Grid Squad
Sees Action
Despite Rain
Backfield and Lines
Alternate as Team ,
Runs Through Plays
Yesterday, the fourth day.of sum-
mer football practice, offense was
once again much in evidence.
Rain, which wet down Ann Arbor
early in the afternoon, had no damp-
ening effect on the spirits of the
players, who put a good deal of
oomph' into their playing.
With backfields and lines alter-
nating, the squad ran through plays,
progressing from Wednesday's spin-
ners and reverses to passing. This
featured many beautiful long heaves
from 'El' Hirsch to his halfback run-
ning mate, Captain Paul White, and
accurate shorter pegs from the arm
of Bill Culligan of last year's fresh-
Daley Alternates in Backfield
Coach Earl Martineau has been
using in his number one backfield
Jack Wink, Hirsch, White, Bill Daley
and Bob Wiese. Wink, former Bad-
ger signal-caller, plays quarterback,
White wingback, Hirsch tailback and
Wiese fullback. Daley has been al-
ternating between the tailback and
fulback posts, as he did at Minne-
sota last year.
For the first time, blocking dum-
mies were dispensed with in running
through plays, but opposing lines
didn't charge hard enough to dent
each other's armorless skins.
Negus Jinxed
- red Negus, prize center from Wis-
corisin, has been seemingly jinxed in
thematter of injuries. Tuesday a
so're leg kept him from entering very
strenuously into practice, and yes-
terday a .sore arm kept him from
donning the standard shorts and ten-
nis;shoes or cleats.
In an after-practice punting session
Dley ;consistently got' off lengthy,
towering boots, matched often by
those from the toe of Ann Arbor
sophomore Howie Wikel.
Among those watching practice
Was a former coach at Michigan
State who is at present on the ad-
ininistrative end of athletics at St te.
He said that he didn't see how the
Spartans could have a team this fall
because of lack of material "We have
some 17- and 18-year-olds, but they
aren't ready for college football." A
meeting held last night decided to
have football, however, as fifty men
indicated theirhwillingness to go out.
Orlando's Case To
Go to Jury Today
DETROIT, July 29.-(I)-The gov-
ernment's case against hockey star
Jimmy Orlando of the Detroit Red
Wings, charging violations of the
Selective Service Act, will be given to
a Federal Court jury Friday morning.
Orlando was given a 2B draft
deferment in 1942 as an essential
worker in a Detroit war plant. The
government contends that he failed
to notify his draft board after being
transferred to office work from a
He testified that he never had re-
quested draft deferment and that
he failed to notify his draft board
of the change in his job status be-
cause he did not know that he was
required to do so. I

in University operated fraternity
houses, got underway Wednesday
when the opening softball games
were played off between the Phi
Gamma and Trigon houses, the lat-
ter chalking up an easy win as the
result of a forfeit, while the Sigma
Nu house took a 15-11 win over the
Phi Gamma fraternity. Yesterday's
games were called off on account of
wet grounds.
The ten participating fraternities
have organized themselves into two

nings (Phi Gamma), the Thunder-
bolts (Psi Upsilon) and the Wildcats
(Lambda Chi Alpha).
Ping-pong, horseshoes, tennis, and
golf will be among the other competi-
tive sports. At the end of the term
a trophy will be awarded to the fra-
ternity house aggregating the most
percentage points in these sports. The
golf tournament is schedued to get
underway Aug. 23. The softball hon-
ors, however, will be the most impor-
tant of the sports as it carries the
most points toward winning the tro-
The softball games will be played
off every Wednesday at Ferry Field

CINCINNATI] July 29.-()-John-
ny Vander Meer walked nine men
and fanned 14 tonight for one of his
old-time victories for the Cincinnati
Reds in the playoff of last night's
postponed Army-Navy Relief game
with the Boston Braves. The score
was 4 to 3.

M.S.C. to rely on upwards of 3,000
soldier-students stationed here for a
rugged eight-game schedule.
Bachman said uniforms would be
issued to the candidates, including
about a dozen players with consider-
able high school experience, next
Monday and Tuesday, and that a
month-long practice would start on
Final decision on whether or not
the 1943 Spartan schedule should be
tackled, Bachman said, will be made
when Athletic Director Ralph H.
Young returns next week from New
York where he is attending a confer-
ence. "When Mr. Young returns
from his trip east, I will submit the
data collected tonight to him for his
information and consideration. In
the meantime, we are going ahead
with our original plan for an August
practice," Bachman declared.
Bachman, a coach of big time
football since 1917, told the candi-
dates that President Roosevelt re-
cently indicated he would confer
with Secretary of War Stimson rela-
tive to football playing by Army
trainees and that it was likely a de-
cision might be made before the
summer practice concludes.
The candidates represented eligi-
ble football players among more
than 600 civilian men students whom
Bachman had requested by letter to
attend the meeting. Amory; the can-
didates were Charles Nystie, former
Detroit Northwestern High star tack-
le, Dick Del Signore and Robert
Krestel, high school halfback stars
from Pennsylvania, Emil Slovak, a
halfback transfer from Rutgers, and.
the veteran coach's own son, Charles
W. Bachman, Jr., who started in at
East Lansing High School.

May R e Lifted
NEW YORK, July 29 -OP)--Col-
lege athletic leaders, whose efforts
to obtain permission for Army Spe-
cialized Training Program students
to complete in intercollegiate ath-
letics so far have been unsuccessful,
heard today, that they had been just
one step away from success last June.
Representative Samuel A. Weiss of
Pennsylvania, Congressional cham-
pion of spectator sports, revealed
that at one time a directive had been
issued to Col. Herman Beukema call-
ing -for a revision of the A.S.T.P.
program to allow for competition.
Before the revision could be made,
however, the order was counter-
mandedebySecretary of War 5tim.
Weiss added that he had received
word from President Roosevelt, in a
reply to a telegram calling his atten-
tion to the situation, he would take
up the matter with the Secretary of
War, and that a petition signed by
256 members of Congress already
was on Stimson's desk.


NEW YORK, July 29. -0P)-The
Yankees treated the Cleveland In-
dians to a typical "Bomber Special"
with all the trimmings today.
Lefty Marius Russo served up a
gaudy two-hitter and the Bombers
flattened three Cleveland curvers
with 14 hits. The result was an 11 to
1 Yankee triumph that evened the
season series between the two clubs
at six victories apiece.
Along the way. Charley Keller
clouted his 14th homer of the season;
Joe Gordon parked his tenth among
the paying guests and Bud Metheny
chipped in with No. 2. These block-
busters made it a cinch for Russo to
chalk up his third win of the year.
Except for the first inning, when the
Tribe came through with its only run
on a walk, Hank Edwards' single and
Roy Cullenbine's fly, it was an easy
way for Marius.
Cards, Phillies Split
ST. LOUIS, July 29.-UP).--Rising
in injured indignation, after losing
the playoff of a protested game, 2 to
1, the Cardinals overwhelmed Freddy
Fitzsimmons Philadelphia Phillies
today, 13 to 5, scoring nine runs in
one inning.
Loss of the playoff was hard for
the Cardinals to take because it sub-
tracted a 1 to 0 victory previously
credited to the World Champions and
substituted a defeat
Completion of the game, which was
halted by rain after 7/ innings on
June 5, was ordered on Philadelphia's
contention that the Cardinals had
failed to cover the field so that play
could be resumed after the storm.

Tigers To Play Two
BOSTON, July 29.--(1')-The De-
troit Tigers haven't done too well
this season in double-headers, but
they will have another twin bill to-
morrow with the Boston Red Sox be-
cause today's single game was blot-
ted out by weather.
Manager Steve O'Neill, deciding to
give Lefty Hal Newhouser more rest,
nominated Paul (Dizzy) Trout and
Henry (Prince) Oana, the latter
drawing his first starting assignment,
against Tex Hughson and Rookie
George Woods of the Sox.
Newhouser will pitch the opener
Saturday of a five-game series with
the Yankees at New York that closes
Detroit's somewhat disastrous East-
ern invasion. The Tigers play twin
bills at New York Sunday and Tues-
SIncluding the double bill the Tigers
dropped to Boston yesterday, Detroit
has engaged in 20 bargain bills this
season. In 11 of these the Tigers
broke even, but they lost both ends
of six bills and captured two straight
only three times.
The Tiger record in the East is
four victories and six defeats.
