'It must be the weather (crisp and 'It was the biggest thrill of my life," said Clete Boyer of 'iis home run in the seventh that put the Yankees ahead to stay 3-2. That was the closest anyone got to excitement.

"The two big hits of the game were by Maris and Boyer," said Houk, sucking on a cigar. Roger Maris' double, in the first scored two runs, and course Bpyer's homer was the go-ahead hit of the game. "I thought Maris had a homer. That, guy--Felipe Alou--made a helluva play on it. I thought it was a goner, and I didn't think he (Alou) could get to it," Houk said.

Actually Alou had the ball in his glove for an out but hit the lop of the fence on his way down and, lost it. It was scored as a clean hit because of the almost impossible play. "And you couldn't take anything from Billy O'Dell, 'either," said Houk in the best British sporting tradition. Houk explained that Bill Skowron was hot feeling well before the game. That's why he took the lirst baseman out in the seventh.

"That fellow Long didn't hurt you," said and Houk grinned. "He wasn't in there to hurt us," said the Yankee manager. Dale Long, a long time bench warmer with the Giants, took over Skowron in the seventh and lashed a single'to right in the eighth and drove in the fourth Yankee run of the game. Skowron may play Friday, "but only if he' is able," said Houk. Ford was a mildly happy man in the crowded Yankee dressing room.

"The scoreless inning record didn't put pressure on me," he said. knew as soon as it was over." It was 332-3 scoreless innings in five consecutive Series games over three years. Jose Pagan broke it with a single in the second that scored Willie Mays. Trotterdale Inyitational The first annual Invitational Pony Trot sanctioned by the New York Affiliate of the U. S.

It was his first World Series homer. Maris started the Yanks oil again in the eighth when he singled with out. O'Dell hit Elston Howard with a pitch and manager Alvin Dark came out to converse with his tiring Jetty. O'Dell stayed in because the Yanks had a lelt-handed batter coming up next in Dale Long, who had replaced Bill Skowroh.

But Long singled, scoring Maris Don Larsen, the Yanks' perfect game pitcher of the 1956 series, came in to lace his old mates under series conditions lor the lirst time.

Still hungry lor more runs with Ford always a question mark in the late innings, the Yanks picked up a sixth run in the ninth.

But grim San Francisco manager Alvin Dark refuses to be counted out just yet and the Giants are ready to send Jack Sanford, a 24 game winner, against the Yankees in today's second game. (UPI Telephoto) Only Syracuse Is Idle Upstate Collegians Play Host Saturday SYRACUSE, N. Y. (AP)-Three of Upstate New York's major College football teams entertain at home Saturday in the role of underdog; Syracuse, the fourth ma-, jor team will be idle. Colgate's rookie-studded cast will go against Holy Cross with the spread formation that befuddled Cornell last weekend.

Cornell meets Harvard, Co- champion of the Ivy League last year, in a league opener for both. The University of Buffalo opens at, home against Villanova, which Bulls coach Dick Offenhamer says is the "best, team we'll face this season." Colgate has. been concentrating on shoring defenses against the Crusaders, whose backfield combination of Pat McCarthy, Tom Hennessey, At Snyder and Hank Cutting is, regared as one of the finest in New. England. The Red Raiders' fortunes may whether its, "Wheel.

Right" offense will work as effectively as it did against Cornell, when the lement of surprise figured in the Big Red's defeat. Neil S. joined Colgate as an this designed the 1 new offense, a modified single-wing in which the ends are split wide, with the left halfback, or wingback, behind the right end. Colgate quarterback Dan Keating, suffering what was described as a deep-seated shoulder bruise, was listed doubtful starter, as was veteran guard Davidson. Cornell, Coach 'Tom while praising the Individual performances of quarterback Gary and a number of other Big Red veterans and rookies, also has been making defensive preparations.

The Harvard backfield, striking from a straight-T under the direction of quarterback Mike Bassett, is viewed, by Harp as "the most versatile and dangerous, in the Ivy League." Buffalo is girding for Villanova's rwo equally potent units. Richie P-ichman, No. 1 quarterback for the 'Cats, ranks fifth among the nation's total offense leaders with 412 yards. Villanova and Buffalo will meet for the third time in a series that INEXPERIENCED BUT EAGER The squad pf "Bulldogs" at Delaware Academy which Coach Ed Shalkey will use in Friday night's football game on I Delhi Stages Night Game Tonight the Academy campus' against Windsor Central School. Absent from the picture were six seniors.

(Star Staff Photo by Harper) GreenBulldogElevenReadyfor Windsor DELHI--The Bulldogs of Delaware Academy have lost their first, two football games this season and by convincing margins--hilt don't let that throw you. Coach Ed Shalkey's young and inexperienced team has worked hard once again during drills this week, and are 'ready to give Windsor a hard time when the two face off in a Susquenango League game at 8 p.m. Shalkey said Thursday night that any team as young as this-he has at least one fresman on the starting line--is bound, to make mistakes. "When you get boys i young," he said, "they make their mistakes as varsity players. "We aren't as fortunate as some schools in that we don't have any junior high school or junior varsity setup for the football players." But what Coach Shalkey did not point, out last night is that a young ball club like his will sometimes "jell" almost overnight and suddenly become a strong eleven.

This is what Bulldog fans are hoping for in tonight's encounter, Delhi has been walloped twice in Sus League games thus far. Walton's powerful Warriors belt- ed the young Bullpups 46-0 in the opener. Last week Whitney Point took Delhi by a 34-14 margin. AVindsor's record going into tonight's game stands at 1-1 after a victory last weekend over Che- iiango Forks by a 7-0 count. In the opener Windsor was trounced by Newark Valley, -33-7.

Delhi will be looking for some passing work built around Merritt Clump, son of the Windsor coach. Shalkey can list but three seniors on his starting a Guards Dave Jones and Bob Kreiscl and center Dave Currie are. in their last year at Delhi. Freshman Vic Loker, a six feet-one inch stalwart weighing in at 165, will be at left end. Linn Carpenter will be at the other end.

Tackles will probably be Jerry Clark and' Gary Hawley. Lynn will be at quarterback, Miko Dreyfus and Larry Kelley at halfbacks and John Williams at fullback. Tonight's arclight affair will be the third in Delhi history. In the past the lamplight affairs have proven most successful and the night gridiron sport is growing throughout the area.
