THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. THURSDAY, OCT. 5, 1939. Orioles Undergo Stiff Workout Goodman Whiffs and Yankees Go On To Win Locals Realize That Stiff Competition Will Be Found in Game The floodlights blazed at Oriole field Wednesday evening as Ludington high school's grid- ders, anticipating an invasion of the Manistee Chippewas Friday evening, were put through stiff •drills by their mentor, Coach Mitch Read. The local team, to the last man, realizes that it is facing an unknown factor in the Manistee team. Manistee, true, has lost a game this year, that to North Muskegon, but the victors, although in Class C, form one of the strongest football aggregations in, this part of Michigan this year. Manistee expected to be defeated by North Muskegon but this -week, with added practice and experience under their belts, the Chippewas plan on coming to Ludington and pluck- Ing a fistful of Oriole feathers. The Orioles, however, now hold the title in the Big Seven conference and no team is coming into Ludington and taking a decision that might mean the title from Ludington without a fight. In addition to bare gridiron facts, the Manistee-Ludington game has always meant a bitter fight. Each of the neighboring teams look forward to two meetings with their arch-rivals and each of the teams'would rather win that particular game than any other on the schedule. Coach Danny Smick, Manistee's big-name coach, has been busy during the past week iron- j ing out wrinkles exposed in last! week's game. Smick, nine- i letter man at University ofj Michigan, is anxious to make i good in his first coaching job! since graduation last June and wants a Ludington scalp for his trophy.

Wolverines, Spartans Prepare for Meeting evening as he started last Saturday evening against Scottville. The team will look better, however, because several weak spots ih the string have been plugged Scottville game. $ o'clock, one hour earlier than last Saturday and fans are urged to take a lesson from last Saturday's experience and come well-armed with heavy coats and blankets to ward off the chill of the evening. Big Ten Teams Gird > for Games Saturday '.COLUMBUS, O., Oct. 5.— (/P)— Don Faurot's gridders from the "show me" state may show the Big Ten just what it wants to know when the Missouri lads invade Columbus Saturday for Ohio State's opening football tgst of the year. issThat is: A cue on how Francis Schmidt's 1939 edition of ambitious Buckeyes will stack up along the Big Ten title row. Tabbed among the favorites for five years in the pre-season ex- perting, the best the < : Buckeyes could do was to share the 1935 title with Minnesota. ^This year many of the experts have placed Northwestern, Michigan, Purdue and the defending Minnesota Gophers on the "title spjot" to the exclusion .;' of the Buckeyes. Even so, only favorable reports-continue to emanate from the Ohio campus where plenty of veterans, including Jdmmy Langhurst, leading scorer of the conference last season are preparing to make another title ANN ARBOR, Oct. 5.—(#>)— Michigan's offensive machinery was shoved into high gear today as Coach Herbert O. (Fritz) Crisler began applying the finishing touches for his team's gridiron debut against Michigan State here Saturday. The Wolverine mentor planned to spend most of the afternoon rehearsing plays and correcting which cropped up in a scrimmage Wednesday a Freshmen eleven. Today's workout, however, was to be light, Crisler, decreeing "no rough work," said he hoped to avoid injuries which plagued the coaching staff earlier in the training season. In Wednesday's half-offensive and half-defensive drill, the Wolverines stopped typical Spartan plays, demonstrated by the yearlings, with ease. Time and again linemen spilled Frosh backs in. their tracks behind the scrimmage line. Then, displaying its offense, the varsity shoved across two touchdowns, both by Halfback Tom Harmon, in rapid-fire order. The fleet-footed Harmon, who carried the ball only four times, crossed the goal line on a 90-yard run on his first attempt and from the 35-yard stripe on his last try. Although spectators holding passes were admitted to the practice, Crisler, at one time during EAST LANSING, Oct. 5.—(/P)— Coach Charley Bachman not only rriust take on one of the toughest teams—the University of Michigan—on his Michigan State dpllege football schedule I Saturday but he must find out ! during the actual 60 minutes of i play which of four sets of backs j are the mast capable. i Normally, it would be enough i to prepare for such an encounter I with a fair idea of what the play- I ers can produce, but in this 34th i battle between the two schools I Bachman has very little advance ! knowledge of what his backs can i do under fire. I The Wayne university game last Saturday gave him an insight into a few possibilities, but not nearly enough. That's what Bachman means when he says "I wish we had two more weeks." Bachman knows he has talent in those four backfields, but he does not know in what combina- j tions they will click. Nine of the ! 17 men are sophomores. I The backfield roster from i which the Spartan offense Sat| urday must be drawn includes the following: Quarterbacks— i Herman Klewicki, Don Rossi, | Willie Davis and Art Woelfle; j left half backs—Jerry Drake, ! Wyman Davis. Duane Crosthwaite and Casey Klewicki; ! right half backs—Bill Kennedy, ; Eddie Perce. Fred Quigley and TO I CITY Cubs Are One Notch Up in Race Toward Championship of Chicago CHICAGO, Oct. 5.—(/P)— The Sox called on old Ted 'Lyons today to square their ! account with the Cubs in the ! second game of the city ser! ies. the 39-year-old right What line-up will take the field Saturday remained undisclosed If Crisler keeps intact a first- On other Big Ten fronts Wednesday Wisconsin, Northwestern and Illinois looked good in de- fenstye maneuvers against plays of their next foes. Wisconsin takes on Texas and Northwestern meets Oklahoma Saturday. Illinois, however, does not face Southern California until next week. Iowa, too, drilled on defense in workouts for Indiana.^but Coach Eddie Anderson said rfe was dismayed at the Hawkeye demon- •SfaHtion,. Indiana went through A'long session at pass defense.

The fullback position admittedly js the weakest. Bachman isn't worrying too much about his line, a strong wall defensively and improving in offensive play daily. It's the backs who will make or break the Spartans Saturday.

The Texan back of us explained to his neighbor, "I sent Matilda and the kids to the fair so Junior and I could enjoy the game." As far as the Yankees were concerned, there wasn't anything wrong with the picture— except the clock on the scoreboard. It was six minutes fast. names as as they passed: Postmaster General James A.

Honest, it did. Typical picture: The Yanks in their dugout sitting complacently back, taking things easy. The Reds on their feet i hollering at their mates and 'heckling the Yanks, as Galan. Clint Brown, who came to Johnny Rigney's rescue in the seventh, was the losing pitcher, while the veteran Earl Whitehill, the last of the Cub Ditchers, drew credit for the triumph. The Sox made only one hit off Whitehill in three innings after routing Larry French. Claude Passeau, Vance Page and Jack Russell. j i he and his staff of 500 would i : sell.
