PACE SIX DAILY NEWS—LUJD^pTON, MICHIGAN, MONDAY, NOV. 13, 1939. Michigan Collapse Grid Problem ^^ «• Coach Crisler Lists Absence of Substitute for Evashevski Big Cause ANN ARBOR, Nov. 13.— (IP)— Football observers sought to find a reason today for the sudden collapse of Michigan's grid- Iron machine. Explanations could foe had for a dime a dozen, tout few, if any, could be supported toy facts. Yet several stand out, and together, they may hold the answer: . (1) Lack of first-class relief material. (2) Failure of the team to function as a unit. Before the season, the Wol„ verlnes were rated, over objections toy Coach Fritz Crisler, as the potential Western conference champions. No one took Crisler seriously until Illinois iburst the butotole and Minnesota came along last Saturday to' further explode the myth. One of the .problems the' Michigan coach listed was the dearth of capable quarterbacks. He had no one, he said, to relieve Forest Evashevski or fill his'place in the event of injury. That Evashevski is indispensable to the Michigan team iS to toe seen by the two defeats ^Crisler's crew has suffered. • Early in the Illinois contest the big Detroiter incurred -an ankle sprain that lessened his effectiveness. He sat on the .bench, unable to 'play, as his teammates took on the Golden Gophers, and watched a Sophomore, Jim Ingalls, a center, try to fill his shoes.' Ingalls played a fine game, but the assignment was difficult for a youngster who had .been shifted to the toack- field only two days previously. (Michigan, it appears, has eleven good players but that's as far as it goes. As 'for the second reason, Michigan Tef used to;:. take Illinois "ser-iousiy, was .beaten, and hasn't yet recovered from the blow. The result, some critics say, has led to (bickering among the players. Minnesota won (because it functioned as a team and its ball-carriers had. superb blocking, enabling Harold'Van Every, George Franck and Bruce —firnlth to ring up a. touchdown apiece to retain thfe "Little Brown Jug" for the sixth straight year with a; 20 to 7. victory. Michigan's "^ball-ctfrr were throttled. The'Wolverines go up against Penn's Quakers at Philadelphia Saturday. ' Professional Football League Is Tightening CHICAGO, Nov. 13.— (IP)— It begins to look more and more like a photo finish in the ^rational Professional Football league. Five teams still are in the running for the pro title with only three weeks remaining in the season, including the Chicago Bears, thrice-beaten but still having an outside chance to tie the Detroit Lions and Green Bay packers for Western division honors. The Bears, defeated on successive week-ends by the New York Giants and Detroit Lions, Giants turned back the Chicago Cards, 17 to 7, with a minimum of effort. The remaining schedule of the five contenders: D e t r o i t—JCleveland, Washington, Green Bay. Green Bay—Brooklyn, Cleveland, Detroit. Chicago Bears—Philadelphia, Chicago Cardinals. New York—Pittsburgh, Brooklyn, Washington. Washington—Chicago Cardinals, Detroit, New York. Thus it appears almost a cer- »»*—*» •**> --w»» vu b***u **• ** w* w* w t Ji Vf**i-J| .*.

A crowd of 42,684 at Detroit, roughly a third of the 123,304 customers at four games Sunday, saw the Bears take a lead in the second period and win going away. The Lions connected in 20 of 37 passes, but the aerials were none too effective in Bear territory. The defeat left the Lions and Green Bay, 23 to 16 victor over Philadelphia, tide for first place in the Western division with six wins and two losses. The Bears are a half game behind with one more setback. Washington and New York maintained their dead heat for Eastern division honors. The Redskins stormed over Brooklyn fora 41'tp'O victory and the nut be decided until final games of the season, with the possibility that one or both of the division races may wind up in a deadlock. Davey O'Brien's aerials kept the Eagles in the game with Green Bay until a third period touchdown clinched the decision, the Packers adding a field Largest Crowd to Ever Jam Alleys See All Crew Star The strong Stroh's bowling team of Detroit proved to the satisfaction of the largest crowd ever to jam the Ludington Recreation alleys that it is one of the top-notch teams of the nation. The brewerymen gave a sparkling performance by cracking out an amazing 3,141 pins to easily trim a Ludington all star group by 437 pins.

The Redskins showed no mercy to Brooklyn, Andy Farkas sending Washington off to a running start with a 90-yard kickoff return for a touchdown at the start of the game. The hapless Card outgained the Giants, but were helpless in scoring territory. The Giants ,11 Stroh's, starred in the opener with a fancy 246 total. Stroh's really went to . shoved across 10 points in the in the Capt. second tilt.

Don Lieberun Is Still Leading Grid Scoring NEW YORK, Nov. 13.— (ff)— Don Lieberum is still the most I potent scorer in college football. Holding tightly to the lead he has retained most of the season, the Manchester, Ind., captain and quarterback has a total of 102 points—but he'd better not loaf or a Rocky Mountain sensation is likely to overtake him. Coming 'from nowhere, Lloyd Madden of Coach'Johnny Mason's Colorado miners is now in second place with, 93 points. A six touchdown performance as the miners won the Rocky Moun- v tain conference title by socking Western State Saturday skyrocketed Madden into the forefront of the scoring leaders; „.— ...... pos G Ttf p^ t j, g Tp ClUb SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 13.— <jp)_Bespectacled little Dominic DiMaggio, voted the Pacific Coast Baseball league's most valuable player last season, goes to the American league Boston Red Sox next year—climbing into the majors from San Francisco sand lots just as his two elder brothers did. Sale of Dominic's contract, along with that of Larry Powell, 'young left-handed pitcher, was announced by the San Francisco Seals of the Pacific Coast league. • Powell will rer- port in 1941. ••-• ; Frank "Lefty" O'Doul; manager of the Seals, said "We get cash and .two players" from Boston. "The players will J>e decided at the major league meeting in Cincinnati Dec. 4," O'Doul said. "I am not at liberty to discuss the cash involved." Like his brothers Joe and Vince, Dominic broke into professional baseball with the San Francisco club. Joe, wlio was voted the American league's outstanding player for 1939, was sold to the New York Yankees lour years ago. The esaest of the three. Vlnce, is with ,the Cincinnati Reds. All three brothers are outfielders, and coast league experts contend that Dominic Js the best flyhawk of the three. ^Dominic, 21, joined the seals in J987 and batted .306. in 1938 lie hit .307 and last season boosted it to .360.

Nov. 13.—(/P)— The Spartans of Michigan State paced the aisles of their hphleward-i>ound Pullmans today; anxious to get at the three days of practice which will be theirs before meeting Indiana at 'East Lansing in the M. S. C. homecoming game Saturday. Not too happy and riot too sa,id over their 6 to Q defeat by Santa Clara last Saturday, the State squad continued to promise itself the big league victory over the Hoosiers which they have longed jfor all season.

He ended with a brilliant 267 total, high for the afternoon. Hillman was the only Ludington keg- ler to topple in excess of 200 in the second contest. With two members under 200. Stroh's fell off its pace in the wind-up and ended with 988, its slimmest total. Capt. Norris continued his fast pace in this game, ending with 230 pins and a grand total for the afternoon of 699 pins. On his last ball he left one Bin standing and with it went his hopes of a 700 series. Reppenhagen rolled 232 for high score in the finale. He closed the afternoon with a total count of 692. Ludington fell down badly in the last game, rolling only 847, 131 under Stroh's final game count. Herb Johnson was tops for the Ludington with 605 pins, only 600 series credited to a Ludington player. George Hillman started fast but faded toward the finish and "had to be content with 573 pins. Wolf was low for Stroh's with 483 and Newhoff low for Ludington with 477. Notes: The Stroh's total Is believed time a team coached by Charley Bachman at State had been beaten four times in one season. Bachman's strategy in the Santa Clara game came near to bringing victory and the team felt it had done its best. The squad played fido in the first half, while it took a look at the Bronco attack, and then in the second half rolled their opponents back for most of the remaining game. But, Santa Clara pushed and passed its way to score in the first quarter and the Spartans could not make good on the one big chance it had later in the game. Again, as in the Syracuse game, the Spartan attack led by Eddie Pearce and Wy Davis rolled up to the Bronco four-yard line. But State did not have the scoring punch it suddenly found in the Syracuse game.

Albion, New Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic association champion, and Central State each finished their campaigns with seven straight victories after losing opening games. Both were high scoring teams, Albion piling up 170 points and Central State getting 142. Top scoring honors, however are held ,by Detroit Tech, which has 189 points with one game to play. The University of Michigan has 179 and two games remaining. Best defensive record of the season was compiled by Hillsdale, which in seven games restricted the opposition to 18 points. Grand Rapids university yielded 251 points to its opponents in eight games for the poorest defensive mark. Of the state's 21 teams, only work on management methods for small game. Strip cropping and contour farming and other advanced methods of soil conservation are toeing practiced. Erosion, a serious problem jfacing American agriculture, is I being combatted at the Rose 1 Lake project by the fencing of j gullies and the planting of washes to shrubs and trees. I Fences and fields follow land I contours rather than section 1 lines and the elimination of grazing and plowing on steep slopes permits the growth of valuable game cover. Active work at the experiment station 'began a year ago. The WPA has aided in construction of roads and buildings. Principal management study to date has been with the pheasant but the program contemplates studies of land and farm management as af- f e c t i n g squirrels, rabbits, skunks and other important species. The projects are carried on in co-operation with the U. S.
