Metkovich Leads 16 Hit Attack as Red Sox
Maintain Half-Game Advantage over Tigers
When the Minnesota Gophers again take their turn on the gridiron
this year, the ever persistent question, "are the Gophers still the old
football giants?" will ring through the minds of many sports fans.
After a disastrous season last year, which saw the former conference
terrors sink to one of the lower brackets of the Big Ten,. and face onej
of the most humiliating seasons ever seen at Minnesota, it is hoped byI
Coach Dr. George Hauser that he can field a team capable of a creditable
As the summer practice came to a close, Coach Hauser stated that
he felt his squad this year was stronger than their team of last year,
but this does not say very much. He based this conclusion on the
fact that he has a good line. Though this line will not even resemble
the maanmoth lines of pre-war days when Bernie Bierman was head
man at Minnesota, it will be able to hold its own in the Western Con-
The main strength of the line will hinge around the center-guard com-
bination, which is reputed to be one of the strongest in the Middle West.
However, Hauser will have to develop a pair of tackles and a pair of ends
to round out the support for this strength in the center of the ling
Bob Lossie, who starred last year as a freshman, will perform at center,
while Bob Graiziger and Bob Jensen, a transfer from St. Thomas College,
where he twice won All-State honors, will team up at the guards. Tom
Reinhart and Rube Juster, substitutes last fall, are the outstanding candi-
dates for the tackle slots, though their efforts may not be good enough
to ward 6af the challenge of several promising freshmen gridders.
With this line and a veteran backfield composed of Mark Browen-
stein, Bob Kaspar, Red Williams, Tori Cates and Bob Grannum, the
Gophers picture looked much brighter this summer than it did a year
ago, when nineteen letter winners and stars were hustled off to other
teams via the transfer route. .
However, on the sad side of the ledger is the fact that some of the
men in the Navy program who were being counted upon heavily are in
the various professional schools of the University and there will be a
bigger demand of their time for scholastic duties. This will mean that
there will be a decrease of time which they can spend on the field, and
that will hamper the Gopher attack considerably.
The one incident that will always remain in my mind is the
embarrassing drubbing that the Wolverines handed Coach Hauser's
team last fall. After the dominance of Minnesota over Michigan for
almost a decade, this jinx was finally broken in that game, and the
little Brown Jug again rested in Ann Arbor. Knowing full well that
the defeat was humiliating, we naturally felt that they would at least
be sports about it, but it .was the exact opposite--they just couldn't
stomach their defeat.
There were many excuses made, and there were even rumors that the
Gophers were going to drop football for the duration because they couldn't
stand the blow to their prestige. I guess the Minnesota squads are good
winners but poor losers, if their action, of last year is any criterion.
This year's game between these two schools, then, should be
a match well worth watching, because Coach Hauser would rather
win this tilt than any other an the schedule, and Coach "Fritz" Crisler
of the Wolverines, will be equally anxious to continue his sudden
mastery over Minnesota. And I believe that the Gophers will have
nothing but vengeance in their minds when the Maize and Blue eleven
hits Minneapolis, and now that they have a little more material, their
confidence is gradually being restored.
All of this analysis boils down to one thing-the Wolverines will have
a lot to do with the issue of whether or not. Minnesota will regain its
supremacy and once more become the old grid giants, and both teams
are fully aware of this.

Cubs To Win over Braves
CHICAGO, Aug. 18-(M)-The Chi-
cago Cubs combined Claude Pas-
seau 's steady pitching and a 13-hit
attack for a 5 to 3 victory over the
Boston Braves today, putting them
ahead in the series, two games to
one. Passeau allowed eight hits in
scoring his eighth victory one more
than he has lost.
Andy Pafko's double and Len Mer-
ullo's triple, after a single by Del
Dallessandra, scored three runs in
the sixth to bring the Cubs from
behind and hand Charley Barrett
his 14th defeat against seven wins.
Barrett was kayoed in the next frame.
Detroit's scoring in the night-
cap started with Roger Cramer's
single and Eddie Mayo's double,
producing one run in the first in-
ning. Three Tiger tallies in the
fourth, topped off by Cramer's tri-
ple to right, gave Gorsica his 4-2
lead but he couldn't hang on.
Mike Ryba, who relieved Clem
Hausmann in the fifth for Boston,
spaced three hits the rest of the way
to notch his 10th victory. The de-
feat left Gorsica with a season record
of five wins and a dozen defeats.
Newhouser, finally beating out
teamnate Paul (Dizzy) Trout in their
duel to see who would be first to
notch his 20th victory, was airtight
in the first game, spacing seven Bos-
'ton hits and striking out six. He
has been beaten only seven times
Emmett O'Neill, who opposed him
on the mound, gave but six hits but
four of them were for extra bases.
The Tigers got enough runs for
Newhouser in the opening frame
when Cramer led off with a double
to right and scored on Jim Out-
law's triple tot right. Outlaw came
home on Rudy York's double to left
Passes to outlaw and Dick Wake-
field, followed by Pinky Higgins's
single to right, accounted for De-
troit's other run in the third inning.
Four Tiger double plays, two in
each game, brought their league
leading total in that department to
134, four more than their entire 1943
