10 The Pittsburgh Pirates flew tri Chicago Tribune Press Service NEW YORK, Oct. 10 The overhead lights were turned on in Yankee stadium, baseball's cathedral and base of its legendary gods, just before the ninth inning of today's world series match. But the lights already had gone out for the Yankees. They trailed by two runs at the moment, and were in arrears by another by the time Roberto Clemente, Pittsburgh's right fielder, snared Pinch Hitter John Blanchard's fly ball to seal the Pirates' 5 to 2 decision. Now the 1960 world series is over for Yankee stadium.

You realized that when the grounds keepers began putting up the football goal posts for next Sunday's struggle between the Giants and Redskins, while baseball fans still were flowing thru the exits. The 1960 world series also may be over for the Yankees. The unawed Pirates, for all of the Yankee home run cannonading, held a 3 game to 2 edge tonight when they boarded their chartered air liner for the return to Pittsburgh and Wednesday's resumption of a duel that suddenly has become exciting. The Pirates have rebounded as magnificently as the 1957 Milwaukee Braves, who were counted out after absorbing a 12 to 3 Yankee beating in the third game to fall behind, 2 games to one. The Pirates fell behind, 2 games to 1, in losing Saturday's 10 to 0 shutout.

Like the Braves of '57, the Pirates rallied for two in a row. The Braves went on to win the 1957 world championship in seven games. These almost unemotional Pirates believe they will flatten the Yankees in six. THE PIRATES were a confident and unconcerned, if sacrilegious, gang of celebrators in the catacombs of baseball's cathedral following today's big victory. Bob Oldis, relief catcher, scooped up a hot dog soon as -y umphantly back to their jhome precincts tonight for 'another wild welcome in their jmost incredible season.

Elrov Face, ace Pirate relief Ditcher, fires toward plate in ninth inning of yesterday's world series game in Yankee Stadium. tAP WirepbotoJ The Pirates, now leading the 57th world series, three games to two, need one more victory.

After tomorrow's day of rest, the Yankees, now real trouble for the first time, will face the formidable task Dickens Raps Ban; NFL Plans Told by Rozelle BY COOPER ROLLOW of avoiding elimination Wednesday. Even if they do, they will have to come back the following afternoon in Pittsburgh's Forbes field in the showdown battle for.the big prize.

Glancing at Tug Wilson, Big Ten commissioner who was a guest at the speakers' table, Phil Dickens, Indiana football coach, accepted the blame for the Hoosiers' three losses to date, then leveled a couple of sharp blasts at the Big Ten at yesterday's luncheon meeting of Chi- BY GEORGE STRICKLER The cha-npionship race in the western division of the National Football league starts over this week.

With four teams tied for first place and the three favorites the Chicago Bears, the Baltimore Colts and the Green Bay Packers all beaten once, the first three weeks of the season appeared to have produced little that can be used as an index to future developments. Happy at the turn of events over the week-end, when the Packers hauled them back into contention by ttouncing Baltimore, the Bears were cut short in their cheering by a report that Willie Galimore probably will be lost for two weeks. Bivins to Move Up The fleet halfback, who had given evidence of having his greatest year, suffered a damaged side in the first half of the 34 to 27 victory over Los Angeles when he was tackled along the sidelines by Halfback Will Sherman and Tackle John LoVetere. The 280 pound LoVetere's part in the play appeared to have been wholly unnecessary, according to the Bears. Galimore's injury most likely will result in Rookie Charlie Bivins being assigned a more prominent part in the Bear attack.

Bivins, 6 feet, 2 inches and 212 pounds, from Morris Brown university in Atlanta, has demonstrated power and speed in periodic appearances with the Bears' receiving unit. Colts Were Ripe Most of the talk, however, Still was over Green Bay's 35 to 21 triumph, which had been publicly forecast by at least one expert. The Colts, by all accepted formulae on such subjects, were ripe to be taken, coming off the Bear game in which they reached an emotional peak. Vince Lombardi's aggressive young club beat the world champions by keeping the pressure on Johnny Unites, a slight the Bears had neglected the week before. The Packers forced Unitas into four interceptions and made him fumble once, by crashing linebackers thru the line on what is known as red-dogging." Baltimore, however, obviously was not as high for the Green Bay game as it had been for the Beais.

In fact the Colts were more inclined to be overconfident. They marched right down to the Packers' 10 yard line with the opening kickoff. There, on fourth down with 8 yards to Continued on page 4, col. 2 dix starting and the inevitable Elroy Face finishing. The 155 pound Face was just as sparkling today as yesterday, when he saved the decision for Vernon Law.

Face came on, as he had for Law, during a seventh inning Yankee uprising. Little Elroy proved again he can stop a rally on a dime. As in their two previous triumphs, a three-run inning, distinguished by Bill Mazeros-ki's tricky and decisive double, was the formula for the Pirates. They had knocked out Art Ditmar in a third of an inning in the inaugural last Wednesday. Yesterday, a three run deluge finished Ralph Terry in the fifth to wipe out a Yankee lead.

62,753 Watch Game Today, shirt sleeve weather for the 62,753 in Yankee stadium, the Pirates sent Ditmar reeling from the arena in the second inning for all the necessary runs, chased an old associate, Luis Arroyo, while scoring once in the third, and added their final run in the Continued on page 2, col. 1 A throng of Pittsburgh Pirate fans estimated at ignored a request that they stay away from the greater Pittsburgh airport and gave the city's baseball heroes a rousing welcome when they landed tonight. Police said the crowd fcroke thru barriers at one stage, but that order was quickly restored. There were more people, one officer said, than the night the Pirates flew in from Milwaukee after clinching the pennant. Chicago Tribune Prew firk New York.

Oct. 10 Gil McDougald, the Yankees' third baseman, took all the blame for the play that opened the door to the Pirates in the second inning in today's world series game. Tony Kubek made a perfect throw," McDougald said. I dropped the ball, because I was in too much of a hurry to tag the runner." Manager Casey Stengel saw the play in a little different light. "I had the infield back," he said, second guessing himself, "and was willing to spot them a run at that time.

If I'd have pulled the infield in, maybe things would have been different." Stengel was asked for his impression of Elroy Face, the Pirate pitcher. "He comes in there for business," replied the Yankee manager. "He really puzzles my hitters with that stuff of his. I don't know whether we got anybody in our league like him. Maybe Staley of the White Sox, early this season, but.

Staley fell apart. "But this I know, we chased a lot of bad pitches this afternoon. That left hander, a i he was throwing that dipsy-doodle in the dirt and they were still trying to hit at it." "Yesterday," saia Bill Ma-zeroski, the Pirates' hitting hero today, "they didn't think we'd show up. Now they're hoping we won't." Interviewers asked Face whether he was surprised when Stengel sent Yogi Berra up to bat for Elston Howard, who hit a home run off Face in the first game. "No," said Face, "but I was a little surprised that he didn't send Berra up to hit for McDougald when I first came in with one out and two on in the seventh."

he reached the locker room. Joe Gibbon, relief pitcher, snared a sliced tomato. Shortstop Dick Groat was talking about pro basketball. First Baseman Dick Stuart, whose home run bat has been silenced by Yankee pitching, was as vocal as ever. Stuart surveyed the mob of writers and sportscasters and bellowed: "Well, the front runners have come back to us again." A moment later Stuart allowed that he certainly could have made a fielding play missed by Moose Skowron, his Yankee contemporary at the first base post.

Photographers were posing Harvey Haddix and Elroy Face, the pitching stars, with Second Baseman Bill Mazer-oski, author of a two run double in the second inning. One quipped: Goodie, a new kind of a picture." Bob Friend, the Purdue university graduate who has drawn Wednesday's pitching assignment, looked up with recognition and said: "Hello. And what do you think? Purdue just doesn't even seem able to beat Wisconsin." Manager Danny Murtaugh, lantern-jawed and Irish faced, sat in a cubicle far smaller than the appointed sanctum of the Yankees' Casey Stengel.

Dickens, deploring his Indiana team's lack of an experienced passer, said he believed the Hocsiers are 40 per cent improved this year despite their 0 and 3 record.

We had to rebuild the entire line since last fall. And when we lost three lettermen in February, it became obvious we also had to rebuild the whole backfield. "I feel like a scalded dog in a rain storm." Pete Rozelle, National Football league commissioner, told cago's American Quarterback club in the Morrison hotel.

Promises Improvement Turning his attention toward the Western conference action placing the Hoosiers under suspension and financial penalty as punishment for recruiting malpractices, Dickens quipped: I've had a great career at Indiana. One year I wasn't allowed to coach the team and this season the results don't count."
