AGE SIX THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. WEDNESDAY, NOV 8, 1939. rioles to Play Manistee Friday Our Hat's Off To— By MacConachie Local Team Will Clincji Title with Victory over Chippewas Ludington Orioles were going through their paces this week in preparation for the traditional season-closer at ManLstee Friday evening. The game, if taken by the Orioles, will safely salt away the Big Seven title in j the Oriole trophy case for another year. Alpena, only other claimant to the title, has won only four games and will take the title only if Ludington is defeated. The most important man on the Manistee team is Fullback Bob Peterson. This shifty player is already known to Ludington, being the author of one of only three Big Seven touchdowns which have been scored against Ludington. He is a fast player j and, unless squelched by the! Orioles, may again cross the goal line this week. The Manistee-Ludington game has for years been the traditional ending of the league season. •For years it was a regular Armistice day feature but in recent years was 'moved forward gradually to earlier dates. Lastj year, however, the Armistice day tradition was revived and the game would have bsen played on Nov. 11 this year but the influx) of lights in the league has moved, all games to Friday evening, thus [ cancelling the Saturday after-] noon date. As last week, when hundreds of Ludington fans made the trip to Traverse City, US-31 is expected to be a continuous stream of cars as car after car evacuates Ludington and wends their! way to Chippewa town to see] Ludington either clinch its! title or lose the game to Manistee and the crown to Alpena. Navy.CplumbiatoClash for Hard Luck Crown How He <?AM SMELL OLTT PASSES'.' Think Jumbled Situation Will Be Cleared by Game This Week The "Little Brown for grabs again. DALLAS, Nov. 8.—(/P)—Football fever, several degrees above normal because of Saturday's clash between undefeated Texas A. and M. and Southern Methodist, brought the first announcement concerning the rather jumbled Cotton Bowl post-season game. J. Curtis Sanford, promoter of three previous Cotton Bowl classics, said his office would be open Thursday. "Definitely, there will be a Cotton Bowl game in Dallas on New Year's day," said Sanford. "I have federal copyrights on the name, leases on the stadium and have started contacting teams." Dan D. Rogers, chairman of a board representing the seven Southwest conference schools, declined to comment. The conference split with Sanford on the eve of the 1938 game —which finally wound up with Texas Tech playing St. Mary's Gaels and no Southwest conference club represented. Rogers, Dallas banker and ! member of the Texas Christian 'university board of regents, said his group had no definite plans "this early in November." Sanford, meanwhile, held out the olive branch to the conference. Purely unofficial but well- jfounded reports said the Texas Aggies, if they come through a ! rather rough 'row of Southern j Methodist, Rice and Texas, would | be reluctant to appear at Sani ford's New Year's day party in jthe Cotton Bowl. No specific I reasons were given. i Speculation centered on what I the Rogers' group is plotting. i Dallas has a new high school ' stadium that seats around 26,000.

Red Sox. —Gerry Nugent, president of the Phils, came up today with a counter-proposal to Larry MacPhail's plan to supplant the World Series with postseason games between American and National league baseball clubs according to their final standings. It was: Why not adopt the Shaughnessey .playoff system, with the winners of the final playoff meeting in a World Series? 10 and 20-minute stopoff—the j Connie Mack gave the idea Spartans'Will prepare for Santa Clara by the chalktalk method and the sight of the Broncos of last year as imprinted on celluloid. as frigid a reception as he had the suggestion of MacPhail, executive vice president of the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Aware that the Broncos' backfield combination of the Notre Dame box and the Warner "Z" formations have been encountered before this season, Bachman devoted his two days this week in East Lansing to taking the edge of faults uncovered against Syracuse. The Spartans are primed for finishers playing in the World Series. I disagree with any kind of playoffs." Nugent said: Maybe he has something there.
