(AP)-A six-point program for de- emphasis of intercollegiate football was offered today by Chancellor Harvie Hra.Lscomb of Vamlerblll University, who said certain aspects of the sport were "educadaiinliy wrong. 1 In his annual "State of the Unl-+ vcrslty" mc.ssage mailed to 20,000i Vantierbllt alumni. Brnlvscomb said' over-emphasis has compelled Vanderbilt toward a new policy concerning football and "only by some such program can football be saved s an undergraduate activity." The six point.s he outlined were: (A) Reduction of time demanded of the college football player, specifically elimination of spring practice. (B) Elimination of bowl games because they place such extraordinary premiums upon winning. (C) Reduction in the number of 'ootball scholarships to a point where the athletic budget is no ongcr a major financial risk of the 'car. (D) Limitation of intercollegiate competition to bona ride college students nnd planning of physical education courses, when offered, icm the standpoint of the student's future service to society rather than from the standpoint of getting and keeping athletes In school. Elimination of utilimiteil substitutions which result in a boy's icing (rained lor one. piny or one ype of play and in a specialization 'oreign to the amateur spirit. (F) Elimination of special funds or current athletic support, whether contributed by race tracks, down:own quarterback clubs or alumni. Braiiscomb's proposals agree in a .argc niensure with the program recommended last week by the Southern Conference. No Deal Made With Browns, Comiskey Says CHICAGO, Oct. 3.

There is little to choose between the Yanks and Newjfork Giants except for the Yankee bulge in series experience. NEW YORK. Oct. 3. (/TV—Before the Dodgers went out to wallop the Giants In. the second National League playoff game yesterday. Jake Pitler, the grizzled, cheerful Brooklyn coach, was looking at the whole thing very philosophically while he also looked after the batting practice balls . . . "It doesn't look too bad," Jnke persisted in spite of the loss of the first game. "I saw those boys In Philadelphia where they were five runs behind and won the game. A team that could do that can do anything." . . . Jake thus gets the award ns (he, best prophet of the playoffs so far . . . Second-best probably was a fan overheard In the subway enroute to the Polo Grounds . . . One of his buddies hollered: "Hey, Joe. We're eoing to give the Yankees the same sort of going-over we gave the Dodgers." . . . joe cut him off sharply: "Wait until we gel in there." Second Guesses When a couple of reporters were wondering about Leo Durocher's choice of Sheldon Jones as pitcher, Manager Charlie Dresscn of HroDklyn upheld his rivals—and possibly his own selection of Clem Lahhie at the same lime . . . Drcssen recalled a Southern Associalion playoff series where liis (cam grot the jump and, after several games and days off for (ravel, came up to what might have been (he deciding game with its Iwat pitcher, readj for work . . . But Ihe other man's (op (linger also was ready, so Charlie took a 'chance on a second-slring- ". lost (hat game by a shutout, they came in with this bl/r guv lo win (he scries . . . "You can't take that chanci* when you're behind," Drrssen pointed out as he reminded his listeners that no pitcher can win unless his team Eels a run .-. . Another second- thought item concern! Bobby Thomson's thiril-innlng strikeout with the bases full yesterday. The Glanls were on[y two runs down then and a hit micht have made It a different game ... "I thought it was a good pitch but Goefi (the umpire) said It was a ball," nobby explained lalcr. "I don't know what he would have called It If I had let It go." Sliorls and Shells Most popular guys in the Polo Grounds, if you can Judge by the cheers, were visiting Yankees, Yogi Berra and Joe DiMagglo. Tommy Holmes, the Braves manager, was there, too—proving he isn't too worried by the folks who called him "disloyal" to his native Brooklyn ... Drcssen got a few chuckles from the scribes by telling how he + The Dodger trio of Andy Pafko. Duke Snider and Carl Purlllo is a brilliant defensive unit. Each packs fl home run punch and each has driven in 90 or more runs. Furillo probably has the best arm tn baseball, discouraging over-ambitious runner? who try, to go from first to third on balls hit to right field. Although he slumped In the final weeks. Snider knocked In 101 runs and hit 29 homers witii his .215 average. Furillo boasts a .297 mark with 16 homers and 91 RBIS. Pafko, the ex-Cub, Is a good defensive man with power as shown by 30 homers nnd 90 RBIS although his average is .255. " Cal Abrams, Jim Russell, Don Thompson and Dick Williams give the Brooks pinch hitting and base running subs. Despite his .263 average, Joe DiMaggio must be expected to outdo himself in his 10th—and probably last — world series. This may be the year the big fellow hnngs up the spikes and he wants to go out in a blaae of glory. May Choose Veierans Gene Woodling (.281) in left and Hank Bauer (.296) or Mickey Monti e (.267) in right field give the American League champs a capable outfield. Bauer has an accurate arm and Mantle is a speedster with a strong, but often wild, arm. Woodling slammed 15 homers, many of them in important games. In the series, Manager Casey Stengel may choose to go with his veterans playing Woodling, DiMaggio nnd Bauer. No matter who the opposition is he will see little lelt- hand pitching. Preacher Roe of Brooklyn is the only regular southpaw starter on the Dodgers or Giants although Dave Koslo of the Giants might get a start. Left fielder Monte Irvin (.312) Is the big man in the Giant garden. The powerful Negro led the league with 121 runs batted in and hammered 24 home runs. Willie Mays (.275), the 20-year- old Negro rookie, had his slump during the September drive. Still he finished with 20 homers and ^nock- ed in 68 runs. ' • In right field Don' Mueller (.217) contributed 71 RBIS and 16 homers, five during a two-day spree against the Dodgers. Back of the first three. Manager Leo Durocher has Clint Hartung (.205).

Allle Reynolds, winner of 17 games, including two no-hitters, and loser of eight during the regular season, will pitch the opener for the Yankees. That also Is known Manager Casey Stengel announced it several days ago. The games will start at 12 pm Central Standard Time. The first two will be played at the Yankee Stadium, the third, fourth and fifth, if necessary, in the National League winners' park and the next two, also if necessary, on the Yankees' grounds. It Is a best of seven, proposition. But nothing else Is known. The olher facts are in the laps of the gods and the pitching arms of Sal Maglie of the Giants and big Don Newcombe of the Dodgers. In their mound performances today IKS the answer to the question of whether it'll be Leo Durocher's miracle men of New York or Charlie Dressen's power-packed Dodgers of Brooklyn that'll bid for baseball's highest honors against the favored Yankees. The National League teams went into the final game of their playoff, series at the Polo Grounds today all square at one game each. But regardless of the outcome the Yankees will be favored to win the series. Oddsmakers today made them a 5-8 choice to cop the series and 6 to 7 to take the opening game.

Al Walker, subbing for the in. jured Hoy Campanella. had his best day as a Dodger with three hits including a tremendous homer in the ninth. Gil Hodges crashed his 40th homer and Andy Palko walloped his 30th. The Giants, due for a bad day after such a miraculous stretch driv* that had netted them 38 victories in their last 45 failed to hit in games, not only the pinches, but chipped in with five glaring errors that led to 3 unearned Dodger runs.
