Auburn, Ala., Oct. 5 Auburn's high-powered Tigers, tuning up for forthcoming battles with Kentucky and Georgia Tech, crushed a fairly strong Chattanooga .Moccasin team here this afternoon, 40 to 7. Coach Shug Jordan used a total of 43 players as the Tigers scored in every quarter hile using various means of racking up the six touchdowns against the Tennes-seans. A crowd of 17,000 fans including some 2,000 high school athletes and band members from over the state saw Auburn win its second game of the season and its eighth straight game at home. Auburn's varsity, which played about a third of the game, scored twice, the second unit tallied twice and a combination of third and fourth units added two TDs. Six different Tigers tallied six-pointers in the high-scoring affair. Quarterbacks Johnny Kern and Bryant Harvard scored on "keep" plays: Jimmy "Big Red" Phillips, the Tigers' All-America candidate, scored by recovering a blocked punt behind the Chattanooga goal line; regular fullback Billy Atkins Chattanooga Auburn First Downs 19 31 i 1 7 125 S 5-31 26 Hushing- Yardage 343 Passes Attempted 19 Passes Completed S Passing; Tarda re 98 Passes Intercepted 0 No. of Pnnts , 4-33.8 Fumbles Lost 1 Tards PenaUsed 170 ploughed across for another TD; Pat Meagher scored once and Jimmy Reynolds, fullback on the Tigers' third unit, scored the final TD on a beautiful 34-yard sprint. The Plainsmen displayed plenty of zip and pep as their backs turned in some nifty runs during the afternoon of offensive football. The showing of the Tigers two sub backs Harvard and Kern no doubt was a welcome sight to the Tiger coaches. Both of the signal callers played fine football, ran and passed well. Auburn rolled up 19 first downs to 12 for the Moccasins and they churned up 342 yards rushing against 31 for the Chattanooga team Junior Johnny Green carried the Chattanooga offense on his shoulders. The 19-year-old quarterback from West Palm Beach, Fla., completed seven of 17 tosses for 125 yards and was the spark in Chattanooga's lone 80-yard drive for their touchdown in 11 plays. Green's nifty 25-yard touchdown pass to end Jim Tucker was a beauty. The toss was the fourth straight completion on the TD drive of 80 yards. Auburn's passing game looked better. The Tigers completed six of ten tosses for 98 yards. Harvard proved to be the best tosser as he connected for four of five tosses for 74 yards. Kern had one out of one and Nix made good one of four. The Tigers also looked good on defense, except possibly those deadly passes thrown by Green. Jim Warren, Red Phillips, Zeke Smith and Jackie Burkett looked great for the first unit. Frank La-Russa and Bobby Wasden looked great with the second unit and Don Braswell and Haywood War-(See JORDAN, 3-C) , while pnard Hovt Jenkin?

The rangy crewcut, who played five positions for the Yanks in his rookie year but hit only three homer in 127 games, drove in four runs with his two blasts into the right-field bleachers. Mickey Mantle also deepened the gloom with his ninth series homer, a 400-foot drive into the bullpen after Kubek singled in the fourth inning. Six Milwaukee pitchers, starting with Bob Buhl, eased the Yanks' way with 11 walks as New York took a 2-1 series lead by romping to this lopsided triumph , in the third game of the best-of-seven competition. It had been a cold, gray afternoon and the lights were burning through the heavy gloom when the 45,804 wandered out of County Stadium after the 3-hour, 18-minute marathon. Henry Aaron whose two - run homer rekindled hopes in the fifth by making the score 7-3, left eight Braves on base. The National League homer and runs-batted-in champ failed with three on in the second and sixth and two on in the first. Bob Turley was almost as ineffective as Buhl in this heralded duel of bullet-throwing righthanders. He walked four and allowed three hits before Casey Stengel brought in Don Larsen in the sec ond- Larsen pitched as though he were still throwing that perfect game of 1956. He blew down the first seven Braves he faced, running his two-year series string to 34 consecutive batters, before Johnny Logan hit a two-strike sin and Clark give chase to Wilson signal-caller John Green (12) lets the big Tiger flankman slip from his grasp. Finally, in the photo on th" far right, Tucker, himself, who started the play with his smart play comes from behind to spoil Wilson's dreams of hitting the double stripe. Au Ghatt ' (ft 1 Hits Blast gle to center in the fifth. Aaron then came along with his homer, but that was all. The big fellow, whom his Yankee mates call Gooney Bird, wob bled briefly in the sixth when two singles and a walk loaded the bases but Jerry Lumpe threw out Aaron on a close play to snuff out the threat. A total of 20 walks by the six Milwaukee pitchers and two Yanks set a series record. The X: f ... . i .. At- 4 ... f "it? 1 "-- - y"'"r' ' . -vs--"--'-- f l COAlYjT - : .

With less than two minutes of playing timf left on the clock, Jerry Daniel gathered in B o y c e Smith's punt and galloped 58 yards through a bevy of Vandy tacklers before being brought down on the eight-yard line. In the remaining minute and 30 seconds, the Tide moved to t h e one-yard line on third down. However, or fourth down Quarterback Bobby Smith was stopped for a yard loss and the game ended with the ball on Vandy's two. Alabama had taken the opening kickoff and marched 58 yards on 14 plays to score. Pete Reaves kick for the extra point was wide. Vandy recovered Smith's fumble on the Alabama 34 early in the second period and scored on six plays. Baxter liooth and Clay Walls blocked Jim Travis' attempted placement and the score was tied. Alabama won the toss and promptly began a drive, after omers 12-3 final out. They missed a little excitement in the dying moments when Eddie Mathews, still hitless in the series, opened the ninth with a walk and Aaron followed with a single. With one out, pinch-hitter Andy Pafko was hit by a pitched ball, loading the bases. Bob Hazle lofted a high pop to McDougald and Del Crandall (See WORLD SERIES, Page 6C) i v. W. KAZlTj .
