Bill Wade, who prefers to wear down opponents with short passing gainers rather than the long; bomb, threw three touchdown 1 passes and bucked a yard for an- \ other in the Bears' win before a! crowd of 55,400 at Detroit. The Bears broke open the game with a 28-point second period and their I defense held the Lions to a net of 40 rushing yards. Earl Morrall, who took over for Milt Plum, passed for Detroit's three touchdowas, two to Gail Cogdill.

Aj 28-yard field goal by Jim Bakkenj widened that margin before Pitts-! burgh rallied. Dick Hoak's one-; yard plunge climaxed a 57-yard j drive that gave the Steelers the' lead.

LOUIS (UPI) - Stan (The, Man) Musial bowed out of baseball today a slugger, the way he came into the major leagues with the St. Louis Cardinals 21 years ago. Musial played his final game in a whirlwind finish — two hits in three times at bat. The near 43-year-old Musial, now a grandfather, was honored in a one-hour long pre-game ceremonies when he told more than 27,000 fans "as long as I live this is a clay I'll always remember." A Marine color guard and a Dixieland band marched ahead of Musial, riding in a spanking new automobile around Busch Stadium. Musial waved to fans who ! rose from seats to cheer him. j Removed From Lineup j Musial beat out the first Card -I inal hit in the fourth inning' Cincinnati and he added another hit in the sixth before manager Johnny Keane took him out of the lineup for the last time. As to his future in baseball, the Cardinals made him a vice president, but Musial said in the dressing room "1 don't really know what the public does in the summertime." "I want to see the Kentucky Derby, the Indianapolis 500-mile Race, and go on a picnic on the Fourth of July with my family." Before the game, which went 3-2 in 14 innings lor St. Louis, Cardinal owner August A. Busch, Jr., said Musial's No. 6 "will never again appear on a Cardinal uniform." "Nobody could do justice to it again," Busch said. "The only other place No. 6 will appear I will be in the baseball Hall of j Fame. This is sort of a sad day I for fans everywhere." Ended A Millionaire Musial, who started in baseball a $65-a-month pitcher and ended a mi'lionaire because of his extra base hitting talents, gave an emotion-packed talk to fans. "For me this is a day of both great joy and sorrow," he said. "The sorrow which always comes when we have to say farewell. .. My heart filled with thanks for so many who made these 22 years I possible." ' Musial, son of a Polish coal miner at Donora, Pa., gave credit to his mother and father for giving him the health which base ball Commissioner Ford C. Frick said enabled him to become "baseball's happy warrior." With Sunday's game, Musial's major league career gave him a lifetime batting average ol .330. He played in 3,026 games, took his turn at bat 10,973 times and was credited with 3,650 hits, including 475 home runs, 177 triples and 725 doubles.

Badgers, Wildcats Have Rough Roads CHICAGO (UPI) - Big Ten title favorites Northwestern and Wisconsin have a tougher road ahead than the experts foresaw if last weekend's results were a barometer. Both won their first important tests of the season, Northwestern getting a head start with a 1-0 conference record by defeating Indiana 34-21, and Wisconsin with a narrow 14-9 edge over Notre Dame. The Wildcats got a tie-breaking field goal in the fourth quarter and 10 more points on a touch- DR.

Coach Ara Parseghian was surprised by Indiana's almost errorless football. "I figure they would make mistakes," Parseghian said. "But they didn't make one until late in the game. It was our team that committed the bobbles." Parseghian recalled that the Wildcats lost the ball six times on pass interceptions and fumbles, "and they didn't make a mistake until late in the fourth period when their fumble got us going for a touchdown."

Nebraska defeated Minnesota 14-7 and Miami's fourth period field goal beat Purdue 3-0. Washington State scored late to tie Iowa 14-14. It was a great afternoon for sophomores. Two starred for the hopeful Illini. Sam Price, a halfback from Toledo, Ohio, scored the lone touchdown. Quarterback Fred Custardo may have found himself steady employment at the expense of senior Mike Taliaferro. Custardo directed a scoring drive and connected on seven of nine throwa for 69 yards. A fine crop of Michigan sophomores, including five starters, was the impetus in the Wolverines' win over California. Northwestern is at Illinois, and Ohio State at Indiana in the only conference action next Saturday.
