Sports—Brief needling remark the 'other day that the Yankees are "*|y babies", that's correct. V!*lW » » * * For many a season we have strained against the unwritten rule that the men in blue are not to be quoted. Some of the most wonderful stories and many of the most-pungent observations we have ever heard came from umpires In their off-duty hours, and yet very few of them hnve been passed on. This is a personal plea to Presi dent Warren Giles of the Nation al League not to nag at Goetz for having stuck a pin into the sens! tive world champions. The worst Commissioner Ford Frlck had to say about the incident was that Larry's remarks were "unfortu nate," and he didn't look very severe when he said It. Players, managers and even club presidents never hesitate to say what they think of umpires. They do not hesitate to charge that one of them is incompetent, for publication, or to heap dirty mounted abuse upon him on the field.

Larry said as much. Big J-ohn Mize, the former National Leaguer, was particularly burned because, the first time he questioned a called strike, Goetz had commented "I see you haven't changed a bit." Yogi Berra and Larry were not buddies because Larry objected to Yogi's helping him call balls and strikes. Zlobotny and Other Maj. Hoople Systems Better Than Sanskrit By MAJOR AMOS B. HOOPLB Former QuotU Champ, Glasgow Egad! Never have I been a man to toot my own horn, but my results this season have been so astounding, and praise from my zillions of readers has billowed in in such tremendous volume, I must cast modesty to the winds. It was Hoople who gave his ardent followers Illinois to defeat Michigan, UCLA to crush the vaunted hosts of California, R The mail is reaching a record volume. Just to pick out several at random: "Never have I seen a human being, or a wounded tiger for that matter, with your stupendous nerve!" Here is a glowing excerpt from another: "There's only one like you, thank goodness! Those Zlobotny and other systems of yours are pure Sanskrit!" Still another loyal follower says he wishes I'd expand. Here's the way he puts it: "Why don't you go and try to predict the average mean rainfall in Abyssinia?" Hm!

His announcement said Jim Head and Dick (Blackie) Bower have been suspended for the rest of the season as a disciplinary measure. Exactly what brought on this action only a few days before Washington State meets California wasn't made clear. But Head said, "It was all our fault." Some players who asked not to be named, said the suspension involves the attitude of the fullbacks toward warm-up drills during practice and followed Tuesday evening's practice • session. It was reported that Kircher did not act until after a vote of senior lettermen on the squad. STAN'S MUD AND SNOW SPECIAL $ 16 95 Mt. Vernon Tire Service Size 6.50x16 U. S. Royal Plus Fed.

VERNON, ILLINOIS- MICHIGAN-PURDUE CLASH IN BIG 10 FEATURE BOUT •y Assoclatsd Frail CHICAGO — A showdown between Purdue and Michigan,in the bunched Big Ten race for the title and Rose Bowl Assignment is the conference center of attraction Saturday. Purdue is the only undefeated team in Big Ten com' petition but tied by Minnesota 14-14. Michfgan has three victories and one defeat, that by Illinois. Another loss by either team would all but wreck its hopes of a championship. Purdue closes its regular season next week against Indiana. Michigan finishes with a traditional foe, Ohio State. Purdue's inability to cope effectively with Minnesota's single wing has given the Boilermakers a slight underdog role at Ann Arbor. ThJ Wolverines range from even in the betting to two point favorites. They also employ the single wing with complex variations. ' Purdue's main hope will be the passing of Dale Samuels. Michigan cannot match this aerial game and so far has not looked too effective in defending against passes. The Wolverines, however, have one of the league's best yard- gainers in tailback Ted Kress and tops the Big Ten on defense against runs. Wisconsin Favored Wisconsin, with a 3-1 record, is a 13 point favorite over Indiana at Blpomington, Ind. The Hoosiers have only one conference decision in four starts. The Badger's hopes have been revived by the return to forrrf of fullback Alan (The Horse) Ameche who ground out 159 yards in Wisconsin's 24-20 triumph over Northwestern last week. This job gave Ameche the rushing leadership with 434 yards in four games. Ted Williams to Ship Overseas By Associated Prtst CHERRY POINT, N. C. — Marine Capt.
