JESIX THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. THURSDAY, OCT. 26, 1939. omplete Plans For Oriole Game WOULD f FJTUL TO Believe from Cadillac Could Win Loca|l Tdam with Right Breaks Plans were about 'complete today for Friday evening's game at Oriole field with Cadillac's Vikings, the team which, although In the cellar, has the power and will to upset a championship-headed grid aggregation. All -Cadillac needs Is a break and Big Seven history may repeat itself. Many times in recent years the Vikings have come from almost complete obscurity in the league to upset a team with its sights on the title. Coach Mitch O. Read and his World Series For Every Team, Suggests MacPhail (By JUDSON BAILEY) NEW YORK, Oct. 26.—-(/Pi- Startled out of a sound off-season slumber by the alarm of Brooklyn's early rising Leland Stanford MacPhail, who wants to supplement the World Series with games between the other clubs, most of the major league magnates are cautious. Some of them have been burned before by their own criticism of the red-head's red hot scheme—such as night baseball—and are willing to give his latest brainchild a hearing. This is what MacPhail said he intended to have anyway at j posed this a long time ago and it was just as silly then as it is now." But for the most part calmer I spirits prevailed. William E. Benswanger, president of the Pittsburgh Pirates, declared, "theoretically I'm inclined to favor MacPhail's idea, because of my belief that the National league is every _ bit as strong as the American with the exception of the Yankees. "However, I don't feel the plan is practical. One objection is that such a plan would tend to take away interest in the big series." Alva Bradley of the Cleveland Michigan Coach Years for Victory of Elis for Old Times Sake the annual meetings at Cincin- 1 Indians, recalling that his sug- nati in December, when he will Propose that the first place i gestion last year of a series of inter-league games in mid-sea- MM , realize that I clubs P la y each other ' as now - 1 son "didn't get much response," " and t he second, third, fourth said he wou ld be ready to give just as important as a tilt with a crack eleven. A loss to Cadillac Friday evening would make just as black a number in the loss column as a loss to Traverse City, Alpena or Petoskey and, with the Wildcats sitting over on Thunder bay and laughing up their sleeves as the other conference teams continue to spar for positions, the locals have come to know that the title is still far from being clinched. Alpena faces only one more game this year, that with Cheboygan, and school officials there already consider the pennant clinched and so it will be if Ludington loses and Alpena wins its finale Nov. 4. Friday evening's game is scheduled to begin at 8 o'clock. The game will toe the last chance for the local fans to see the Orioles in action on their own field this year. A huge crowd is expected to attend the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth place teams also meet. "Inter-league competit i o n should not be confined to two clubs. A series of inter-league games in which all clubs participate would fairly determine the question of supremacy each season," argued MacPhail. The first reaction of a lot of persons was probably voiced most succinctly by Clark Grif- MacPhail's idea consideration if it were brought up, "but I wouldn't want to take a position on it right now." Old Connie Mack, who has seen a lot of novelties come and go, dissented .loudly: "To my way of thinking it would be a real failure. There would be no real rivalry. I don't believe any of our clubs in the second division, or even those flth, president" of the Washing- ] in the lower part of the upper, ton Senators, who snapped: would draw enough to make it "Just say for me that Mac- , worthwhile, financially, to play Phail is nuts. Somebody pro- j the games."

NEW YORK, Oct. 26.~-(/P)— | That was in 1934 and again in 1936. and the jinx almost caught up with him last year when his first Michigan eleven went to New Haven a prohibitive favorite and was lucky to come out on the long end of the score. In all, his' teams have met old times Despite the long-standing objections of Manager Bill Terry, the New York Giants have decided to install a bang-up lighting •system in the Polo grounds and play a full quota of night games next summer, both at home and on the road. The Giants thus • become the last of the 'big league clubs to haul down their sunlit banner and succumb to the financial lure of the arcs. Up to now Terry stubbornly has refused to in es ready for the intersectional! Eli on the gridiron seven since 1932, coming out on top three times, losing three and tie- ing one. So Crisler is leaving nothing I'll be sure and let you know when it is," Johnson wrote. Last week a family named Harmon in New Albany, N. Y., named their newborn son for Tom. ILL GET flT SfllE EAST LANSING, Oct. 26.—(/P) —If all goes well, Michigan State college football followers will get a preview Saturday of Sophomore linemen who will fill vacancies in this year's line after graduation. Coach Charley Bachman has pretty well combed out his| second-year backf iekl candi- i dates, but few of the linemen | have been given any work and i those only in scattered, indivi-} dual substitutions. There has •• been no opportunity to see -what i they can do as units. i Saturday's game against II-' linois Wesleyan, always a scrap- i py outfit, should give plenty of i chance to inspect the work of as Jim Finley, Bill Rupp, George Danciu, Harold Miller, Don Robart, Russell Bouck and Fred Carter. Finley and Rupp, both guards, are two high school teammates from Louisville, Ky., and were co-captains of the Spartan Freshman team. Rupp was all Kentucky and all-southern high school guard. Miller, another guard, is a Detroit Cooly product, and Bouck an end, and Carter a tackle, from Elsie, Mich. Danciu is from East Chicago, and Robart, a Lansing lad. Is regarded by Bachman as one of the smarest center candidates in years. In addition, Al Smolen, of Dunkirk, N. Y., and Frank Karas, of Escanaba, are two serves who are billed Saturday.

Although the winners took the three games by a 202 pin margin, there was some spectacular bowling uncovered by members of both teams. Attesting 'to the calibre of bowling turned in by Plumb and Nelson is the fact that every member on the team turned in one game of over 200, first time this year any team has turned the trick. Schoenherr and Campbell led the 'winning aggregation with identical series of 601. The latter Mad a 220 game to his credit and the former one of 213. High 'score for the match, however, was turned in by Greening of Plumb and Nelson, who spilled 232 -pins. Other fine scores by the winning aggregation were a 220 -toy Galinski and 209 by H. Hanson. Beckstrom topped the losers with 601, including games of 208 and 202. Taylor and Lather of .Willoughby's had one and two 200 games, respectively.
