EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the second of a series of nine articles on the football
prospects of Michigan's scheduled 194$ opponents.
THE TITLE DRUMS at Columbus are rumbling as usual, but this summer
finds a more subdued beat emanating from the Ohio State campus than
at any time in the last three or four years.
The old Buckeye days are gone, the days of Francis Schmidt, when
every spring found the Scarlet and Grey touted as national champions, only
to fizzle out in the fall. The present Buckeyes are sitting quietly back and
waiting for the opening kickoff.
In fact there is ani almost strange silence connected with Ohio
State's 1946 prospects. There is not even the usual wailing, which is to
be expected when a team loses seven of the previous season's starters,
men of the calibre of Thorton Dixon, and Russ Thomas, an All-Ameri-
can nominee, possibly the best pair of tackles in the Conference last
fall. Bob McGinnis, left guard, center Jack Lininger, and a quartet of
Lacks that could go with almost any in the land, Paul Sarringhaus, Hal
Daugherty, Dick Fisher, and Ollie Cline, will not be around.
When a team can suffer losses such as these and refrain from making
use of the well-worn "crying towel," it is a safe bet the Paul Bixler, new
head coach, has plenty of power in the 1946 outfit.
A LOOK at the Buckeye ,roster eliminates all guesswork on that score.
Bixler will have 38 lettermen coming back for the fall. They include
players from as far back as the '41 outfit. In addition, he has a fist-full
of ex-Buck freshman stars, for whom bright football futures have long been
For the nucleus of his squad Bixler can count on Captain Warren Am-
ling, the redheaded block of All-American guard. A hint as to the Buckeye
guard situation is found in the oft-heard rumor that Amling will be shifted
to tackle this fall. Big Charlie Csuri is back to fill the other tackle vacancy.
Csuri played one of the outstanding games of his career against 'Michi-
gan in '42 when he blocked a Kuzma punt to set up one of State's touch-
downs in their 21-27 victory.
Max Schnittker, the big tackle who kicked the field goal against
Michigan last season will also be around. The guard prospects seem to
be more of the uncertain variety. There are six lettermen in the crop
of candidates, headed by Hal Dean, a '41 and '42 regular. The others
include Ray DiPierro, Rob Jabbusch, Wilbur Miller, Tom Synder, Wibs
Schneider, and Cal Wible.
Bixler's end situation was brightened by the return of Cecil Souders,
a '43 regular. First-string Carleton Kessler of last year's team is a good bet
to hold down the other flank. Dick Jackson and Trian Dendiu should also
see plenty of end action.
STEVE O'DEA, understudy to Jack Linninger at the center post last year,
is back, and so are Tony Adamle and Howard Tieke, a pair of returnees
who are also in the fight for first string center job.
There's no dearth of backfield material at Columbus either. Regular
quarterback Robin Priday may ,be shifted to end to make room for Tommy
Phillips, '42 freshman sensation, who is already being touted as one of the
Big Nine's outstanding passers.. Alex Verdova and Jerry Krall, a duo of
scatbacks, who alternated at the right half slot, seem likely to go on sharing
at that position this~ fall.
Tommy James, the redheaded speedster who spelled Paul Sarringhaus
on the national championship squad of '42, is ready to step in as a regular
this coming season. Bob Brugge, another hard running veteran halfback,
has returned to make the backfield picture sunnier.
Probably the toughest spot for Bixler to fill will be the mammoth
hole at fullback, which was left when the Army took Ollie Cline, one
of the midwest's best. Cline was equally adept at bucking a line or skirt-
ing an end. There are a couple of standouts in the battle for Cline's old
position. They are Chick Gandee, the number one reserve from last year's
team, and Joe Whisler, an ex-freshman star. Whisler was the ace of
the Buckeye freshman team that whipped the tough Michigan yearling
crew in a 16-14 thriller in '42.
Bixler, like nearly every other coach in the land, definitely has some-
thing. It may be a good many years before he has as much material to
throw into a schedule again, but in this year of pigskin plenty, the confident
silence coming out of Buckeyeland is a wise, wise course.

Wakefield Hits'
Homer To Give
Detroit Victory
Three Tiger Pitchers
Throttle Chicago, 5-4
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO, Aug 9-Dick Wake-
field's 'sixth homer of the season
which soared into the right field up-
per deck tonight gave the Detroit
Tigers a 5 to 4 victory over the Chi-
cago White Sox.
Wakefield was the batting star of
the game with two doubles, a homer
and two singles. He made five of the
Tigers' 14 hits off Edgar Smith, Joe
Haynes and Earl Caldwell.
Hal Newhouser had to save the
game for the Tigers in the ninth
when the White Sox filled the bases
with nobody out. Manager Steve
O'Neill took Al Benton out of the
game and Newhouser retired the side
in order.

his homer, two singles and a double
in four official trips to bat.

All-Time High
Food Harvest
Seen for 1946
WASHINGTON, Aug.. 9,- UP) -
Promising the largest harvest of food
and feed grains in the nation's hist-
ory, this year's crop production looms
to exceed the record 1942 harvest
by three per cent, the Agriculture
Department reported today.
Prospects on August 1 indicated
record crops of corn, wheat, tobacco,
peaches, plums and truck products;
near record crops of oats, rice, pea-
nuts, potatoes, pears, grapes, cherries,
and sugar cane, and average or bet-
ter yields of hay, soy beans, dry peas,
prunes, apricots and sugar beets.
The department said if that pro-
duction turns up as now indicated,
the aggregate output would be 27
per cent above the 1923-33 average
and six per cent above last year's
bumper production.
The Department reported, however,
that toward the end of the month a
few drought areas were developing
and in some sections late crops had
begun to deteriorate, particularly in
the Great Lakes regions.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 9-(P)-Pres-
ident Truman came back with what
he called a democratic word-obfus-
cation-today in response to Rep.
Clarence J. Brown's complaint of
"ingannation" in the President's new
budget program.
Mr. Truman said Brown, Ohio Re-
publican who is campaign director for
his party's national committee, used
a forty dollar word-a Republican
word that Democrats wouldn't use-
to mean deceit. He added that he
had to have it looked up to find out
just what was on Brown's mind.
He told reporters at his news con-
ference that he guessed that word
was put in just to add to the obfus-
cation which he said was character-
istic of the whole Brown statement.
Word Values Discussed
That led into the discussion of word
values, and Mr.Truman said obfus-
cation was a Democratic word mean-
ing the other fellow is trying to mess
you up.
Brown, in a statement, had criti-
cized the new budget estimates as

"misleading either through the use
of imagination or ingannation."
The President said he had no in-
tention of presenting a campaign'
issue in the fiscal report, nor anything'
else except a plain statement of facts,
One of those facts, he said, is that
the budget is balanced except for
enlisted men's terminal leave pay,
which was not contemplated in the
first White House budget at the start
of the year. Hereminded newsmen
that that $2,700,000,000 measure pass-
ed the House unanimously and Brown
voted for it. He said both parties
had a share of responsibility and he
was willing to take his own share for
signing it.
The revised budget under discus-
sion estimated a deficit of $1,900,000,-
000 down from $4,500,000,000 esti-
mated the first of the year.
Mr. Truman would not discuss
primaries. He said he didnot know
whether Senator Mead (Dem.-N.Y.)
will be a candidate for Governor
of New York. All he would say about
the recent Missouri primary was to
predict categorically that Enos A.
Axtell, Democratic nominee for Con-
gress from the Fifth District, will
win in November.
OPA Campaign Issue
The Executive agreed with "The
Democrat," national committee or-
gan, that the OPA will be a national
campaign issue. But whether it will
be a main issue, he said, we will have
to wait a while and see. That came
in response to a question whether
he agreed with an article in "The
Democrat" saying that price control
will be a main issue and that party
members have been asked to keep
it alive.
The give and take on politics high-
lighted a meeting with reporters in
which the President also:
Reported that he has no official
new information from the Justice
Department on the recent Georgia
lynchings but knows that the FBI
investigation is going forward with
all the energy possible.
Reported the J. I. Case Farm Ma-
chinery -Plant strike is still in the
hands of the Labor Department.

that I can be reinstated."1
Herold (Muddy) Ruel, Chandler's
special assistant, and Walter Mulbry,
the Commissioner's secretary, told
the 30-year-old little backstopper,
who is under five-year suspension
for bolting the National League for
Mexican baseball, that baseball laws
ban reinstatement of an ineligible
player between Aug. 1 and Oct. 31.
Owen said he learned from Ruel{
that under American baseball's laws
he has the right to appeal to Presi-
dent Ford Frick of the National
League for reinstatement and that'
he would do so immediately by letter."
The next step, according to Ruel,
would be for Frick to certify the re-
quest for reinstatement to Chand-
ler's office for a decision.
