Grinnell, Mud Halt Knox, 7-0 Pioneers Hand Siwashers Third Straight Conference Setback By Jim Dunlcvey Grinncll's Pioneers, with the aid of plenty of rain and mud, made a quick first quarter touchdown stand up through-out the game for a 7-0 victory over Knox Saturday afternoon nt Willard Field. The win broke a ten game losing streak for the Pioneers, whose last triumph came in their 1951 homecoming game with Cornell, 7-6. The field, the players and the hall just kept getting wetter and muddier as the game wore on, due (o the constant rain. Grinnell marched 57 yards for a touchdown the first time they got the hall, and that 57 yards just about represents their net yardage on the ground for the entire game. For the second week In a row Coach Harold Turner's Siwashers oulgained their opponents and still lost. They came close to a touchdown only once Saturday, reaching the Grinnell six yard line before being stopped. But after the Pioneers' early score, the ball was in Grinnell territory a majority of the time. The two teams were even on first downs with six apiece, but Knox totaled 135 yards—81 rushing and 54 passing—while the Grinnell total was 67. The Grinnell efforts were adied by some good punting off the toe of Dick von Maur, who averaged 38 yards on eight boots. Carl ifochn and John Clark had a 32 yard average for Knox, but each team allowed boots to roll dead on several occasions rather than take a chance with a wet ball and slippeery turf, and this added to the distance. The game was the first for Hoehn since returning to school after his discharge from military service. He saw action for only about half the playing time, but demonstrated that he will be a Bowling Scores FRIDAY P.M.

Wl — The body of Joe (Red) Crowdcr, pitcher for the Birmingham Barons of the Southern Association, was recovered from Grand Lake Sunday. The baseball player from Seneca, Mo., drowned yesterday while fishing with a friend, Ray Coburn, also of Seneca. He was 25. Coburn said Crowder, an excellent swimmer, slipped into the deep water from a boat reaching for his hat and sank immediately. Authorities speculate he got the cramps or had a heart attack. big help to tho Siwashers. John Clark accounted for a good deal of the Knox ground yardage. The 170 pound junior halfback was a real workhorse, and showed a lot of drive. Line play, however, wasn't as sharp as it was a week ago against Coc. Ed Beavan's passing was sharp, especially with a wet hall. And the outcome might have been a bit different under better weather conditions when Ilea van could have fired more often, as the Pioneers seemed a bit weak on pass defense. Twice Knox men got behind the Grlnncl safety, but on one occasion the receiver dropped the ball. Clark grabbed the other one, though, and the resulting gain of 36 yards was the Siwashers' longest of the game. This play led to Knox's only real threat of the game. Their attack bogged down momentarily after the pass, and Clark punted, but two plays later Grinnell fumbled and Co-captain Dave Ecklcy recovered for Knox. The Siwashers reached the Grinnell six, picking up one first down when Hoehn fumbled and Frank Schcrer recoveied for a seven yard gain. They lost the ball on downs, though, and after that the two teams went back to pushing back and forth in the mud. Grinncll's touchdown came in the first quarter. The Pioneers kicked off to open the game, but after three plays Knox punted, Clark's boot being downed on the Grinnell 43 yards line. Ten plays later the Pioneers were on the Knox four, and Tim Walker went over right tackle for the touchdown. The conversion, which ended the scoring almost before it started, was booted by von Maur. Knox will be at home again this Saturday, still looking for their first win, against three defeats. And right, now they're on the bottom in the Midwest Conference, as all three games have been league affairs. Carleton will provide the opposition this Saturday, with the date designated as Dad's Day.

Insurance for Anything Anywhere 6$ South Prairit , Phone 4303 By GAYLE TALBOT NEW YORK 13— It's almost a sure thing these days that the two World Series teams will play themselves one awful game along about midway, the shortage of really good pitchers being what it is, and the Yankees and Dodgers turned theirs in Sunday. The final score was 11-7 in favor of the Yankees, which meant that the Amercan Leaguers went into today's sixth and possibly final game leading by three victories to two. The four-time-straight world champions were back in their own park in the Bronx with their crack young left-hander, Whitey Ford, on the mound. The Dodgers, needing desperately to win this one, were relying on their new World Series strikeout king, Carl Erskine. Considering his brilliant exploit of only three days ago, when he fanned 14 Yankees and beat them by 3-2, Erskine looked like a very good bet to knot the playoff at 3-3 and sent it into its binding game Tuesday. But Charlie Dressen, the Brooklyn manager, was ready to shoot the works. "If he's needed, Preacher Roe will be ready to relieve," he said last night. "I would like to save him to start the seventh game, but I won't be saving anybody when these games are playing out the way they are now. I worked him with only three days rest not long ago, thinking about this, and the Preach looked all right." There was much opinion that the Yanks had more to worry about today than the Dodgers had. Few who watched Erskine throttle the champs two days ago and who saw what angry, humiliated athletes there were later in the dressing room could imagine that they would give the handsome right-hander trouble. But they could easily imagine the Brooks' right-handed power taking great chunks out of Ford again. Sunday's game was a sloppy contest. Each club made six earned runs. The Yankees scored five times in the third inning after they should have been out and Johnny Podres, the juvenile who started pitching for the Dodgers, should have been out of trouble. With two Yanks away, Podres got Collins, the first baseman, to slap a ball sharply down the right line. GH Hodges muffed it beautifully, letting a run across. This appeared to ruffle the Dodger pit cher. He proceeded to hit the next batter and walk the bases full. Dressen replaced him with tern permental Russ Meyer and Mickey Mantle stepped into Meyer's first pitch and rifled it into the upper deck in left field. That made the score 6-1, and whatever happened after that was pretty much lost in the shuffle.

Yester- Mystery Mirrors BROOKLYN (fl — The case of the mysterious centerfield mirrors in the fifth World Series game Sunday remains unsolved. Several times the game between the New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers was stopped while umpires investigated complaints from batters that mirror reflections were being flashed in their eyes. The Yankees complained the flashes were coming from an apartment house overlooking centerfield. A policeman was dispatched to the apartment house to ask residents not to use mirrors. Umpire Ed Hurley said on a television program Sunday that a man was caught pulling the mirror act from an upstairs window. The Brooklyn police department denied this. The department said residents were warned. But no arrest was made since no one was caught ia the act. NEW YORK UPi — Johnny Mize reiterated his decision to retire after the series. "Guess I've played my last game in Ebbets Field," he said, ''and I hope there'll be only one more in Yankee Stadium." —0— Billy Loes, who whipped the Yankees Saturday, was stopped for speeding while driving to the ball park before yesterday's game. "I'm Billy Loes of the Dodgers," he told the police officer. "Look, buddy," came the sharp reply, "I'm a Yankee fan—here's your ticket." Jim McDonald was only the Yankees' batting practice pitcher in last year's series. When Casey Stengel thought the Dodgers were using him as one in the eighth inning yesterday, he quickly called In Bob Kuzava from the bullpen. —0— Speaking of batting practice, early arrivals yesterday were wondering whether Chuck Dressen came up with a sleeper when they saw a big pitcher firing "bullets" to the Brook hitters. It turned out to be Don Newcombe who had a 8-3 record with the Fort Sam Houston Army team. He won't be able to pitch for the Dodgers until 1954, however. The happiest guy in the Yankee dressing room after the game was Allie Reynolds. "I didn't figure I was going in. But it sure turned out all right," be said. "That was a low fast ball I threw Robinson to get him to hit into the game- ending double play." Steve Kraly, young Yankee lefty, who hasn't seen any action in the series, has more to worry about than the Dodgers. A fire in his home in Whiting, Ind., Saturday night destroyed the kitchen and back porch. a case like that.?" Monmouth Defeats Cornell, 244), in Conference Game Fighting mud and rain, plus their opponents, the Monmouth Scots went on to chalk up their second straight Midwest Conference victory as they romped over Cornell 24 to 0 in Iowa Saturday. It was also the Monmouth grid- ders' third victory of the season. They more or less put things on ice in the first half, going across for three TDs in the first two periods. Irv Sellers counted the first Monmouth touchdown, racing 25 yards after intercepting a pass. Barry Frakes dashed 22 yards for the second Scot score and Ronnie Williams smashed from the six for Monmouth's third TD. In the final period Frakes plunged from the one yard line for the touchdown. It was the third consecutive conference loss for Cornell. Billy Martin is the leading hitter in the series with a .526 batting average with 10 hits in 19 times at bat. Gil Hodges paces the Brooks with a .444 mark on eight hits in 18 trips. —o— Two Yankees, coach Frank Crosetti and outfielder Bill Renna celebrated birthdays along with the club's victory yesterday.
