Yanks End Series With 10-6 Triumph Victors Build ~ R. Brawn, 3b ..... 4 Waddling. If ....... 4 Mapes, rl .......... :i Coleman, 2b ....... 5 Pate, p BROOKLYN (N) Reese, ss Early Margin Then Hold It By JACK HAND Brooklyn, (fP) —The New York Yankees, Ole' Casey Stengel's "Invalids of Destiny," won the World Series from the startled Brooklyn Dodgers for several reasons—but the most important was the Reynolds - Page bullpen combination. Because he had the right relief men when he needed them most, Stengel led his assorted cripples to the winner's share of the jackpot—$5,884 for each Yankee. Relief Work Outstanding Pitching usually tells the story of a short series. It was no different in the 5-game 1949 set. Only this time it was the relief work of Allie Reynolds and Fireman Joe Page that stood out after the Yanks and Dodgers swapped 1-0 shutouts in the first 2 record- breaking games. Certainly there were other stars, Bobby Brown for his .500 batting average, Johnny Mize for his 1.000 pinch' hitting, Tommy Henrich for the homer' that won the opener, and Little Phil Rizzu- io for his superlative shortstop play. But way out front there were the 2 "big" men of the Yanks' 12th series triumph in 16 tries— Reynolds and Page. Page, of course, ran true to form. Hadn't he marched from Jorgensen, 3b the bullpen 60 times during the regular season, 20 of them to save Reynolds? An About Face Reynolds' brilliant performance of no runs and only ,2 hits in 12J innings was a direct right-about- f a c e. "91d Wahoo" completed but 4 games in 31 starts. He even got the opening assignment on sort of a rain check. Originally Stengel expected to send Ed Lopat 'after the Brooks last Wednesday. He shifted to Reynolds the day before the game. Not even the dream books can do that good. Allie threw his 2-hitter 1-0 in nullifying Don Newcombe's 11 strikeouts with 9 of his own. Preacher Roe blanked the Yanks' Vic Raschi the next afternoon. Then the bullpen corporation took over. It was Page with a 5r,-inning "stopper" after Tommy Byrne went bad in the 3rd game. Reynolds bailed out Lopat by retiring the last 10 men in succession in the 4th. Biff Lead Melts Things ended normally at Ebbets Field Sunday afternoon with Page ambling in to finish what Raschi started. Working with only 2 days' rest, like Newcombe in Saturday's sad effort, Raschi crumbled in the Dodger 7th. A 10-2 lead melted to 10-6. There was nobody on when Page walked in. Normally the joint is jumping. But Gil Hodges had just unloaded a 3-run homer as a parting shot to Raschi. The Fireman was all alone. Boss Burt Shotten sent up Louis, Olmo, a righthanded' batter, for Dodger Marv Rackley, a lefthander. Three hopping fast balls and the side was out. Nobody knew it until Page told it after the game, but Smoky Joe was throwing only fast balls because he injured his hand Friday. It didn't make mtich difference. The high hard one was plenty hard. Pinch Hitter Bruce Edwards singled with one gone in the 8th. The next batter, Peewee Reese hit a come-back ball to Page, who started a double play. Page didn't let up in the 9th. He ended matters with a flourish. Following a menacing* pinch double by Eddie Miksis, he whiffed Duke Snider, the most striking man in the series, and fanned Jackie Robinson. He lost' Gene Hermanski on a walk. Gil Hodges worked the count to 2-2 and beat the breeze on the next. That was all. It was all over but th,e post mortems. They were brief, too. Just Enough Left "That last week was tough for both clubs," said Stengel in the clubhouse. "They had to beat the Phillies; we had the Red Sox. We had just enough to last 5 games more, that's all." Shotton was philosophical about the whole thing. Most of the Dodgers seemed glad it was all over. "They have got a little bit more what you need in a World Series," said Shotton, "but, we'll be better when we meet them next fall." The consensus was that the Dodgers would have to be better by next fall if they're going to win. They gave it plenty of hustle, but their pitching just wasn't deep enough.

By JIM VANHEEL Globe-Gazette Sports Editor Iowa Cits-^The Iowa HawKeyes did it again—they lost to Illinois Saturday 20-14. That marked the 8th straight year that the Illini have whipped the Hawks and the script was as usual—Iowa didn't look so hot while Illinois played good football. Coach Eddie Anderson's club was whipped by a much more decisive margin than the final point total. The Illini had possession of the ball for 80 offensive plays to only 49 for the Hawks and Iowa 3 times put up great goal line stands which' forced Illinois to lose the ball on downs on the 1-yard stripe, just short of paydirt. The Real Picture The statistics on the game give a much clearer picture of the play than the score. Illinois had 17 first downs to 9 for Iowa and 2 by the Hawks came through penalty. On the ground, Illinois netted 398 yards to a feeble 87 for Iowa. Halfback Johnny Karras of Illinois, who scored twice, personally picked up 174 yards by rushing. Illinois didn't do much through the air; the Illini didn't need it. Iowa's line was a soft v touch for the rugged Illini wall 1 and ifs shifty backs. This was especially Ohio State and USC Battle to 13-13 Tie Los Angeles, (/P) — Ohio State and'the Trojans of Southern California, stout representatives of the Big Ten and Pacific coast conferences, fought each other to a 13-13 tie Saturday as 62,877 fans sat glued to the benches until the final gun. The rugged Buckeyes scored twice on brilliantly executed plays and the crippled Trojans capitalized on one Buckeye fumble on the 5, yard line and earned their 2nd tally in a game that was rugged from start, to finish. Ohio "State scored in the first 5 minutes and kicked the extra point. USC scored just as the period ended but missed its .try for the tying digit. Fullback Fred Morrison of the Buckeyes cut loose with a 57- yard touchdown run in the 3rd to put his mates in front, but the Troys matched the score and knotted the count with a 63-yard march. This time the Bucks missed their try and USC made good. W L T Pot PF Or Ohio Slate 1 0 II 1.000 4G 1 Minnesota 1 U 0 1.00(1 21 ", Illinois 1 0 1 .150 HS B<!

Phone 1488 TCU Stops Indiana on Wet Turf, 74-7 Bloomington, Ind., (^—Opportune passing and some deceptive running gave Texas Christian university a mud-splattered 13-6 football 'victory over Indiana's Hoosiers Saturday. Little Lindy Berry was responsible for a 3rd period pass that broke Indiana's back. A half-hour long rain soaked the gridiron about an hour before game time and took away much of TCU's aerial threat. The ground was too soggy for the pass receivers to get a good footing but 20,000 fans waited out the rain to watch the game. Both teams field goals. / Bears Overpower Wisconsin Club 35-20 Madison, Wis., (IP) —California's bruising Bears powered to 3 touchdowns on the ground and 2 more through the air Saturday to whip Wisconsin 35-20 in an intersectional football game under a blistering sun at Camp Randall stadium. , A crowd of 45,000 saw the Bears rack up their 4th straight victory and hand the Badgers their first setback. tried unsuccessful Sooners Gouge Texas 20-14 in Rough Test Dallas, (/P)—Oklahoma gouged out a 20-14 victory over Texas of this intersectional football gamn Saturday in a rough 44th renewal before 75,347 fans. The massive Sooners tore the Texas line as wide open as. the Lone Star prairie. Leon Heath, Gene Thomas and Darrell Royal scooted through for great chunks of yardage. The Bears' vaunted passing attack was out of gear most of the day, but hard running backs like Jim Manochino, Pete Schabarum and Charley Sarver more than made up for the deficit. Monachino, a slashing 187- pound halfback, powered for California's first 2 touchdowns, Quarterback Bob Celeri, a rriagi- cian at the T-post, added another and passed for a 4th, and Charley Erb, who took • over the signal calling in the waning minutes, passed for the last. Tackle Jim Cullom kicked,all 5 extra points.

George H. Cornelius, C. 0 Mason CHy Arm«ry l»fi W. Stale Missouri Strikes for 21-7 Win Over Aggies Columbia, Mo., (fP) —The University of Missouri struck back savagely with a pair of 3rd period touchdowns to defeat Oklahoma A. and M. 21-7 here Saturday. Trailing after the opening period and gaining a deadlock by halftime, Missouri hit 2 quick payoffs for its first victory in 3 starts. For Oklahoma A. and M. it was the first loss of the season after lieing Texas Christian and rolling over Denver 48-2 last week. Missouri drove out of a corner to unknot the score when John Grabko punted dead on the Missouri six. Missouri scored in three plays, with Dick Braznell passing 34 yards to Halfback John Glorioso for the counter. Braznell came back moments later to cap a 40-yard drive by stepping over from the two. ing defensive Iowa and he good help from Hubert Johnston and John Towner. Illinois Leads 7-0 Early in the game the Hawkeyes moved to the Illinois 22 before losing the ball on downs but that constituted the only Iowa scoring thrusts other than the 2 which payed off in scores and they were both set up through breaks. Nea the start of the 2nd period, Illinois moved to the Iowa 34 anc Karras cut through right guard cut wide to the right and score with Lou Levanti's conversion good for a 7-0 lead. Iowa's first score came alter a punt in which Ron Clark handed off to Dick Raklovits who fumbled with Don Woodhouse of Mason City recovering on the 28. A pass from Glenn Drahn to Don Commack took the ball to the 3 and Commack cracked left guard to score with Reichardt converting for a 7-7 tie. Twice later in the same period Illinois lost the ball on downs on the one-yard line. The first time Russ Steger tried to go over the top from the 1 but fumbled on 4th down and End Tony Klimek recovered. Later the Illini couldn't punch through in their series of downs. Iowa was using a 9-man line to hold. Karras Scores Again At ttfe start of the 2nd half, Karras broke through center, cut right and went 62 yards for a touchdown but the conversion was no good as the Illini led 13-7. Iowa moved slightly into Illinois territory near the end of the 3rd quarter but Al Tate intercepted a pass of Drahn's after his arm was hit on the throw and the Illini harl the ball on their own 47. Illinois drove to the Iowa 1 yard line to open the 4th quarter before they again lost the ball on downs. Later, Sam Piazza returned an Iowa punt to the Hawk 26. and a series of ground playr> ate up the yardage with Piazza going through the middle for the 3rd Illinois score. Levanti's kick was good and Illinois had a comfortable 20-7 lead. Pass Interference Helps Iowa si ruck back after the next kickoff. With the Hawks on the 50, Drahn uncorked a long pass to Dittmer and the winners were charged with pass interference rish-Tulane Contest Tops oridiron Slate New York, (JP) — The middle vest's 3-year dominancy in col- ege football, shaken with the de- eat of mighty Michigan by Army, may get another jolt this week. Notre Dame's Fighting Irish, ffho since 1945 have been batting with Michigan for top honors, is host to Tulan'e Green Wave n a game that may turn the standings upside down. Coach Frank Leahy of the Irish has tabbed the southerners as the oughest assignment his athletes have faced in many a moon. He warned long ago that this is the :ame Notre Dame is most likely to lose. Tulane has already bowled over 2 of the stoutest elevens in its own bailwick—Alabama by 28-14, and Georgia Tech 18-0. It won easily over a breather foe Saturday, brushing aside little Southeastern Louisiana 40-0. Not Beaten Since '45 Notre Dame will be protecting one of the longest unbeaten streaks in modern football. The Irish haven't been licked, though they've experienced ties, since Great Lakes subdued them in 1945. Last Saturday the Irish sparked by Emil Sitko, rompec over Purdue 35-12. Not since Army's great wartime teams were rampant has anyone outside the middlewest had a look-in for national championship honors. Notre Dame replaced Army as the No. 1 team in the Associatec Press poll in 1946 and 1947. Michigan, which beat out Notre Dame in a post-season poll in 1947, was declared the best team in the lane last year. Michigan, which topped the pol last week also, goes against Northwestern Rose Bowl champion. Saturday. In the first weekly poll of the year Notre Dame was ranked 2nd and Tulane 4th. Two other high-placed elevens bang heads in a game that will vie with the South Bend attraction for attention will be the Ohio State-Minnesota duel at Columbus. Oct. 10, 1949 Mai«> City Glob«-Gaie4l«, Jit NEEDLESS INFORMATION — Manager Casey Stengel (right) of the New York Yankees wags a finger as he appears to be telling glum-looking Manager Burt Shotton of the Brooklyn Dodgers how the Yanks won the World Series 4 games to one. The Yanks had just beat Brooklyn 10-6 in the final game of the series at Ebbetts Field. Iowa State Tops Colorado to Take Lead in Big Six Battle for Bowl Bid These 2 teams are on the upsurge in the Western conference and are battling for the crown and Rose Bowl bid. Minnesota was Gophers Smack Wildcats 21-7 Minneapolis. . (/P) — Minnesota throttled Northwestern's attack for 3 periods and took a 21-7 decision in the first test of the Gopher's 1949 footb all team against Big Ten opposition. The Gophers' defense proved too much for the Wildcats. It wasn't until midway .in the final period that Northwestern could score. An intercepted pass gave them the ball in midfield and they combined short passes over the line with enough running plays to work the ball to the Gopher one-yard line. Right Half Rich Athart made the tally after fumbling and picking up the ball on the run. Guard Eddie Nemeth added the point. * Boulder, Colo., (/P) — The Iowa State Cyclones ground out a tough 13-6 Big Seven football victory over Colorado Saturday in a cold rain before 15,000 shivering spec- rated 5th last State llth. week and Ohio tators. .It was a close, dull battle until midway in the 2nd period when Iowa State drove 46 yards for the first touchdown, with Bill Chauncey breaking through tackle and zig-zagging 27 yards for the score. Joe Brubaker booted the extra point. Buff Passes Fail Colorado got a chance to tie the score in the last minute of the first half when Charlie Breinis knocked. Jerry McGlynn loose from the ball oa a punt return and' Sam Winningham recovered on the Iowa State 23. But 4 straight Colorado passes failed. The rain started falling at the start of the 2nd half and the Buffaloes seemed to like. it as they djrove 49 yards for a touchdown. Army Batters Michigan 21-7 Ann Arbor, Mich., (/P) — A beautifully - poised Army team snapped mighty Michigan's 25- game winning streak Saturday as it whipped the Wolverines 21-7 in one of the big upsets of the year. Michigan, a 10-point favorite In pre-game betting, fell behind 7-0 in the first 10 minutes of play and never was able to hit its stride thereafter. Army, in winning its 14th game without a defeat, , maintained its jinx over Michigan which has lost all 3 of its Army games. Michigan, 'the No, 1 team in the nation last year, saw its bid for another national title crumble before Army's pile-driving attack. It was their first loss since they dropped a 13-9 game to Illinois on Oct. 26, 1946, and their worst defeat since Navy took them 33-7 in 1945. Army edged them 20-13 in the 1946 game. There was no question about Army's superiority, for they were razor-sharp. Army wasted little time in letting the sell-out crowd of 97,239 know they were witnessing a real ball game. . They stunned Michigan with an 89-yard first period touchdown march with Quarterback Arnold Galiffa's' deadly passing sparking the drive. Halfback Frank Fischl broke off left end for 5 yards and crossed the goal line standing up for Army's first touchdown. Jack Muckmull kicked the point and Army led 7-0. Michigan was hard-hit -as 'its No. 1 passer, Chuck Ortmann, suffered a concussion on the 2nd running play of the game and was carried off on a stretcher. He was taken to the University Health Center where doctors said his condition was good. The Michigan passer was injured in a pileup on an Army running play. Wally Teninga proved• an able replacement for Ortmann, but he had little luck with his passes against the tight Army defense. STATISTICS Army Mich.

It was practically the same Purdue team that held Notra Dame to a one-point victory last year, but its 2-touchdown rally in the final period was only a gallant gesture. Notre Dame's wealth of fleet backs and its superior blocking had the game in full control after an early Purdue drive died on the Irish 7 yard mark. Emil Sitko, Notre Dame's stubby fullback, ran over the first 3 Irish touchdowns. He got the first quarter's only score with a 41 yard dash and added the other 2 in the 2nd period with short plunges. Notre Dame's lineup was sprinkled liberally with reserves in the final quarter when Purdue cut its losing margin from 5 touchdowns to 3. drive which ended when Apuzzo went 4 yards around right end for the score. Rodolfo Flores missed the placement kick for extra point. Late in the 3rd period the Cyclones drove to the Colorado 6, where they were stalled by the Buffalo line. At the opening of the last quarter, Iowa State moved 80 yards to the final touchdown, with Bill Weeks scoring on a quarterback sneak. 2nd Loop Win The victory was Iowa State's 2nd in conference play .and left the Cyclones tied for first in the Big Seven standings with Nebraska, 13-6 winner over Kansas State. The loss was Colorado's 2nd straight in 3 conference starts. Colorado made a late bid with a drive from its own 29 to the Iowa State 24 but the threat was broken up when Don Ferguson intercepted a pass in the Iowa State end zone. In the last 2 minutes of play John Tillo recovered a fumble on the Colorado 27, but the timekeep-. er's gun caught the Cyclones at the 24.

Two scoreless quarters followed, with Stanford on the offense but losing the ball 3 times while on goalward marches. The winning touchdown came after Substitute Left Half Ray Nagel. snapped up a Stanford pass 25 yards out from the Indian goal, Two line smashes advanced it to the 20-yard marker, from where Johnson again took it for a touchdown run.
