Yanks Win 1-0 on Tom Henrich's Homer Kansas State Ohio State'sKrall Sophs Carry Attack Load By SKIPPER PATRICK Kansas City, (ff) — Every Big Seven team has its good sophomores this season, but it's doubtful that any compare with Kansas State in the rookie department. The only 2 sophomore backs in the top 15 ball carriers after 2 or -more games are K-State's Hiram Faubion and Elmer Creviston. Faubion, a slender long-stepper from Phillipsburg, Kans., has the best average in the league for players with 12 or more carries—8 yards on each of his 22 trips. He's also tied with Oklahoma's George Thomas in number of touchdowns scored. Each has 5. But Thomas . has 3 conversions for a total of 33 points and the conference lead. A perfect passing record of 2 out of 2, 1 for a touchdown against Colorado, also is held by Faubion. Creviston has averaged 7 yards on 19 carries and has a touchdown to his credit. Other top grade Kansas State sophs are Ted Maupin of Hutchin- spn, Kans., Jon O'Connor of Ossining, N. Y., backs, and Center Harold Robinson of Manhattan. Chauncey the Workhorse Sophomores have had little chance to show at Oklahoma and Missouri, and even at Iowa State where veterans are playing superbly for Coach Abe Stuber. Iowa State's Senior Fullback Bill Chauncey, for example, is the workhorse of the conference on rushing plays. He's'carried the ball 59 times in 3 games for 287 yards. Kansas State's young hands get their 2nd major test this Saturday, meeting Nebraska at Manhattan, Kans. Nebraska, on a basis of its fine defensive play against Minnesota last week, has been made a 7-point favorite. Oklahoma, preparing for Texas in a battle of the bruisers at Dal- 1 las Saturday, will have to play without Guard Norman McNabb who suffered a knee injury in the Texas Aggie game last week. Colorado, which meets Iowa State at Boulder, had a lively scrimmage Tuesday. Jerry Apuzzo • and Merwin .Hodel, both sophomores, passed impressively. No Wins But a Sellout Kansas, .witless in its first 3 games, doesn't have to worry too much about finances this season. Business Manager Earl Falkenstien announced Tuesday that the Missouri-Kansas football game is a sellout for the 3rd straight year. It will be played in Lawrence Nov. 19. Missouri was warned by Scout John Simmons that Oklahoma A. and M., the Tigers' foe at Columbia, Mo., Saturday "may be tougher than either Ohio State or Sets Offensive Pace in Big Ten Play Chicago, (/P) — The one - man rampage of Jerry Krall, Ohio State senior halfback, against Indiana has given him a fast start in the Big Ten statistical race. Aiming to surpass his 4.6 yard running average of last year, Krall gained 129 yards in the Buckeyes' 46-7 trouncing of Indiana for a 10.7 average. He completed 4 of 5 tosses for 50 yards and scored 2. touchdowns. Noted as a dangerous runner, Krall also will be used more in the role of a passer this season. He tossed only 3 times during the entire 1948 campaign—but all 3 were completed for touchdowns. Krai] tops the league this week in total offense with 179 yards. Purdue's John-Kerestes is ahead in rushing with 178, but has amassed that yardage in 2 league games. The Boilermaker fullback's average is 5.7. Pandel Savic, Ohio quarterback, is lops among passers with 5 connections in 8 tries for 75 yards and 2 touchdowns. The leading punter so far is Wisconsin's Bob Petruska with a 40.3 average on 8 kicks against Illinois. Three basketball players top the pass catchers with 4 grabs. They are Ronnie Bland of Purdue (77 yards), Dick Schnittker, Ohio State (70), and Walt Kersulis, Illinois (41). Michigan, the 1948 statistical champion, and Minnesota have yet to play a conference game. Vlore Pass Defense for Iowa Hawks Iowa City, (ff>) _ Coach Eddie Anderson continued to stress pass defense in football practice Tuesday. He sent his University of Iowa squad through a long non- contact session. Quarterback Glenn Drahn was nble to limber up without pads, Dut Guard Earl Banks was stil! lobbling on a bad knee which may keep him out of action against .he Illini. Both were hurt in the °urdue game. ' End Jack Dittmer will captain Iowa on defense against Illinois, and Banks, if he can play, and End Ralph Woodard will be the defensive game captains. 8/ow Off Newcombe in 9th; Reynolds Allows Only 2 Hits By LEO H.

Phone 1144 3,000 in Line for Bleacher Seats by Wednesday Sunrise By MURRAY BROWN New York, (U.R) —The 14,000 bleacher seats to the opening World Series game were earned Wednesday by bleary-eyed men, women and children who stood in a chilly all-night vigil outside Yankee Stadium. First man ready'to plunk down his $1 admission price to the bleacher seats was Joseph Gabion- witz, a 26-year-old Dodger fan from Newark, N. J. He set up camp at the ticket window at 6 p. m. Monday but was chased away by policemen who ushered him to the head of the line at 1 p. m. Tuesday when police restrictions were removed and the rush was on. Behind him fellow Dodger and Yankee boosters stretched for blocks in a 3-abreast queue that grew* throughout the misty foggy night and numbered more than 3,000 by dawn. "I took my vacation so I could be first in line," said Gabionwitz, a textile worker. "I like to be first at these things and I'm going to head up the line over at Ebbets Field too." Beverly Brafman, 19, a Yankee fan, was next in line. She curled up on the sidewalk and slept all night. The all-night crowd was congenial and orderly. About equally divided in Yankee-Dodger partisanship, most spent the night in never-ending arguments about their favorite teams. The ones who came with blankets and pillows tried to make themselves comfortable and sleep through the worst of it. Others risked aches by stretching out on the pavement or dozed backed up against the stadium wall. Coffee vendors cashed in. They were busy all night passing out 10-cent cups of weak brew ladled from portable milk cans along with hot dogs and prepared sandwiches. About a-third of those in line were women, who accompanied their husbands or arrived in small Football Notes From Big Ten ILLINOIS Champaign, 111., (U.R)—End Tony Klimek started training Wednesday for both offensive and defensive play against Iowa Saturday as a replacement for Marshall Smith who will not get into the game because of knee injuries Smith, who has had 2 operations on his bad knee, may be out o action for the remainder of the season.

Y.,(U.R)—Enrico Bertola, former heavyweight boxing champion of Italy, died in Emergency hospital Wednesday from head injuries suffered in his 10- round decision defeat by Lee Oma of Newark, N. J., here Tuesday night. Bertola, who never regained consciousness after collapsing in his Memorial Auditorium dressing room shortly before midnight, succumbed 13i hours after he was rushed to the hospital. He underwent a delicate operation for a cerebral hemorrhage, Jp u t it failed to save his life. The death of the Italian heavy was the 2nd ring fatality here in 3 years. In April, 1946, Negro Heavy Dave Mason of Cleveland, Ohio, was knocked out by Joe Matisi of Endicott, N. Y. T and died in a hospital"about 24 hours later. Visibly exhausted at the end of Tuesday night's bout, although never knocked down, Bertola walked unsteadily to the dressing room.

Series Televised on Movie Screen New York, (U.R)—A World Series baseball game was televised on a movie screen for the first time in history Wednesday and the customers got all the trimmings of going to the ball park. Popcorn, peanut and soda pop vendoi - s strode up and down the aisles of the Brooklyn Fabian Fox theater selling their wares while a capacity crowd of more than 4,000 Dodger fans cheered for their beloved Bums. The admission price of $1.20 included the 'regular showing of movies and the doors opened at 9:30 a. m. But many fans, some carrying lunch boxes, started lining up at 8 a. m. By noon, the theater, located in the heart of Dodger territory Was practically filled to its 4,100-seat capacity. One Dodger rooter brought changes of underwear, announcing that "I'm going to stay here for the \vhole Series." SPORTS ,=S=®= , ROUNDUP by Hugh S. Fullerton, ir New York, (/P) — Perhaps it seems strange that 2 clubs which go in for farm operations in a big way, the Yankees and Dodgers, wiil be opening the World Series with pitchers developed by other teams . . . Allie Reynolds, Manager Casey Stengel's choice, was brought up to be a Cleveland Indian and came to New York in the Joe Gordon deal 2 years ago. . . . Preacher Roe, who is expected to get the call from Barney Shottpn, belonged to the Cardinals and pitched 4 seasons for Pittsburgh before he was shipped to Brooklyn with Billy Cox, in a package deal. ... Of course, that's just another indication that it's due to be a \vacky series . . . Two other Yankee mound reliables, Eddie Lopat and Fred Sanford, came from the notably weak White Sox and Browns. And, of course, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Don Newcombe were trained in the Negro baseball leagues. . . . Then there's Mike McCormick, who played for the Braves last fall and the Reds in 1940 and who now unexpectedly finds himself collecting another series share . . . And Hugh Casey, who pitched in 9 games as a Dodger in the 1941 and 1947 series, is on the Yankee bench handing out advice about his former teammates. Bawled Out When the New York Knickerbockers started basketball practice at Bear Mountain Monday, Coach Joe Lapchick began to give a lecture on fundamentals . . . He signalled the club's equipment man to hand him a basketball . . . After a quick look around, the equipment man whispered something into Joe's ear, and Lapchick changed signals. . . . Seems nobody had remembered to bring a basketball. Cleaning: the Cuff Band Leader Guy Lombardo will spend about 2,000 bucks to have his orchestra play at Yankee stadium during the series. He isn't being paid for it, but he's giving his musicians full pay, buying lunches, etc., and also has invited their wives to attend the games at his expense. ,. . . Someone has estimated that 75 miles of hot dogs will be sold during the series. If they were laid end to end, it would be very wasteful. , . . Add Yankee hospital list: The Cocker Spaniel presented to Joe DiMaggio Saturday promptly contracted a cold and Joe had to send for the vet.
