Tigers Outweigh Wheelers- Carroll at Audubon Tlie Audubon Wheelers will be at a weight disadvantage in Hie line when they entertain Carroll on Friday nipht. WoigM charts reveal the Wheelers will field a line that will avcr- app 161 pounds per player compared to an average of 172 pounds for the Tigers. Thai gives the Tiger? an 11 pound edge. In the backfield, the discrepancy is not as great. Carroll's backs average about 155 pounds while the Wheeler backfield weighs in at 155 average. Team averages find the Wheelers on the shy end by a margin of seven pounds per player. Audti- bon's average is 159 while Carroll averages 106. May Hare Changes "I can't say definitely whether there will be change s," Coach Gene Macomber, Carroll coach, said Thursday. "We have a freshman boy, Pat Jones, who has been playing a lot of football, and he may get a shot at Jack Hays' position," the Tiger coach said. "We would also like to revise our offense just enough 'to start scoring a few more, but that doesn't mean any basic changes," he said. The Carroll mentor pointed out 2 Times Herald Carroll, la. Thursday, Oct. 1, 1959 POLK COUNTY FEDERAL SAVINGS & LOAN ASSN. DES MOINES that the passing game has started to click and that should aid the ground attack. Defensively the Tigers have looked good in previous games limiting opponents to single touchdowns per fame. Consequently, defense has not been stressed quite as much as offense in preparation for the Audubon encounter. Wheelers Change Tackles The Wheelers, looking for their second victory of the season, have made only one important change since the opening encounter. Sig Brekke, 170-pound senior, who had hot been counted on as a regular, has moved into a starting slot as the left tackle. He replaces Chester Miller, another senior, who originally had the starting assignment. Workhorse in the Audubon scheme of things from a Wing T with unbalanced line is Doug Dudgeon, 155-pound junior quarterback. He teams in the, backfield with Jim Jensen at left half, Merlin Bald at right half and Merrill Firebaugh at fullback. The Wheelers won two and lost six last year and this season have suffered defeats at the hands of Perry and Harlan and last week whipped Sac City 13-6. Game time will be 8 p.m. Friday at the Audubon field located on the east side of town in the vicinity of the National Guard Armory.

But there was considerable shuffling of other teams in the top 10. Defending state champion Des Moines Roosevelt and Marshalltown disappeared from the select list. Davenport dropped ffom fourth to tenth place while Des Moines East was boosted from sixth to third—a spot held last week by West Waterloo. Ames, which overpowered Central Conference rival Grinnell 61-7 last week, was ranked No. 1 by eight sports editors and sportscasters voting. The Little Cyclones also drew five second place votes and one for third place for a total of 123 points. Burlington was only four points behind, with 119, and receiyed top mention on four ballots. In three games, Ames has scored 115 points and yielded only 14. Burlington's mark is 90-14. Neither team is expected to have trouble extending its winning streak to four games this week. Ames meets Boone and Burlington plays Keokuk. Des Moines East was given 79 points, good for third place, after its 6-0 victory over West Waterloo. West received 43 points and slumped to sixth. Mason City, 12-0 winner over Area Games Friday Games: Omaha (Holy Name) at Kuemper Carroll at Audubon Denison at Lake City Ida Grove at Jefferson Sac City at Harlan Glidden at Ar-We-Va Scranton at Coon Rapids Manning at Exira Manilla at Bayard Guthrie Center at Greenfield Lake View at Wall Lake Dubuque Wahlert for its third triumph, drew 59 points and advanced from seventh to fourth. Sioux City East, idle last week, remained at fifth. LeMars, with two first place votes, moved from a tie for eighth to seventh. Dubuque, a top 10 newcomer, stopped Moline, 111., 20-12 and advanced from 14th to 8th with 32 points. Cherokee, also making a first appearance, holds down ninth after its 55-7 beating of Sibley. A 13-13 tie* with Davenport Assumption sent Davenport to 10th. Top games among the chal- engers this week include Des Moines East vs. East Waterloo; Mason City vs. West Waterloo in a battle, of rated teams; Fort Dodge vs. Sioux City East and Spencer vs. Cherokee.

Burlington (4) 119 ttiiBiHUifitHtMiitiitiiintiMiitiiii from ditft barton's KEYBOARD •iiiiMii PREDICTION TIME: The only certainty about sports is the uncertainty of the outcome. That seems pretty well established after last week's hectic battles on the local gridiron and this week's amazing comeback by the Dodgers in the play off game at Los Angeles. Although this observer correctly predicted the outcome of the Harlan-Carroll game and missed on the Manning-Kuemper game, it must be conceded that either game could have gone the other way. One or two fortunate breaks for either the Tigers or Knights could have meant victory instead of defeat. Last week's record was eight out of 11 guesses. That brings the season total to 31 correct selections' out o,f 40 attempts for a .775 or 77% per cent mark. It should be pointed out that ties are construed as misses since the team given the nod to win did not win as predicted. It's probably a good thing the percentage has stayed above the three-quarter mark during 1 the first one-third of the season because the prognosticating is apt to get sticky from here on out. Another 11 game slate confronts the experts this week. Here's how it might go: OMAHA (HOLY NAME) over Kuemper. Physcologically this should go the other way. It's Homecoming for the Knights, and traditionally a team is much tougher as a Homecoming host than at any other time. But the hard facts show Holy Name has won 14 of the last 15 and the win streak was snapped this fall in a very close game, 27-26, by a Lincoln team. The Omaha team at least has had the winning habit, and ' that is something that seems to elude the Knights each season. Here's hoping Coach Frank Sovich and his boys can turn the tables. CARROLL over Audubon. At the start of the season Coach Gene Macomber, Carroll coach, said the second division was a toss-up in the Midwest Conference. He classed both Carroll and Audubon in that category and said it wouldn't be surprising if a second division outfit moved Ion. After into the top eche- Harlan's narrow 7-6 squeaker past Carroll last week, hand, Audubon can Be rough. They lost by two touchdowns to a team (Perry) that lost by one to Jefferson, and last week the Wheelers took Sac City, 13-6. Nevertheless, we will take Carroll in a game that should see the Tigers garner a few more touchdowns than the last two outings. LAKE CITY over Denison. This could be a bruiser.

A new world of station wagon living! On October 8, for the first time, there wffl be not one, not two, but three completely new kinds of Ford can designed and priced for nine out of ten Americans: The 1960 Fords—The Finest Fords of a Lifetime, beautiful from any Point of View, worth more from every Point of Value! The 1960 Falcon—The New-size Ford, the world's most experienced new car, and the easiest car in the world to own!

It's true that Lake City fell before Jefferson. But who hasn't? It al! comes down to the fact the Eagles are stronger and the Monarchs are weaker than this observer figured in pre-season estimates. But this one is so close it could go either way. JEFFERSON over Ida Grove. Can't see the Rams letting down for one second against the outfit that tied them 7-7 in a battle of frustration a year ago. This season the Jefferson club appears to be loaded with talent and the Hawks still haven't found the key for a victory. However, strange things sometimes happen. Ida Grove is virtually out of the conference race with one loss and one tie and jthe Hawks may wind up in the role of a spoiler against the team conceded to have the best chance to unseat Harlan. HARLAN over Sac City. After a scare the Cyclones got last week, there's a good chance they will bounce back with vengeance this week. Coach Harold "Swede" Johnson has too much talent at hand and undoubtedly will use more of that talent in an effort to build a fire under his regulars. If the Cyclones learned their lesson against Carroll, it could be a long night for the Indians. GLIDDEN over Ar-We-Va. Coach Bob Miller, of Glidden-Ralston, has done' a terrific selling job this fall. He seems to have convinced everyone, except his players, that the Wildcats haven't got a chance against anybody. The same thing is true this week. The Wildcats play Ar-We-Va, the team that was racked last week by Irwin, 19-0, and the crying towel is out. Ron Burdine won't see action. Terry Peters might see very limited offensive action only (much like a pinch-hitter who can't run in the ninth inning of a world series game with the winning run perched on third base). But when the final score is chalked on the board, the Wildcats are apt to be in front. SCRANTON over Coon Rapids. This doesn't seem to be the year for Coon Rapids. In three games they have failed to score a single point, and in football you must score to win. On the other hand, Scranton has scored 48 points in three games. That seems sufficient evidence to give the nod to the.Tro- jans. EXIRA over Manning. We are well aware of last year's close encounter between these two and with Manning's impressive win over Kuemper here last Saturday night. But the nod in this one has to go to Exira even though Coach Howard Justice lost a couple of regulars through injuries and kicked another off for disciplinary reasons. Exira still has Jerry Payne and he could be the margin of difference. However, let's not take anything away from a Manning club that has an aggressive, hard-charging line and a set of fast backs. Kuemper isn't the only team apt to be surprised by the Bulldogs before the season is over. MANILLA over Bayard. This is the coin-tossing special of the week. Bayard obviously has been looking forward to the Manilla game, and Manilla rode roughshod over Coon Rapids last week. Bayard beat the same foe, 27-0, and then Manilla triumphed over the Coon Rapids clan, 51-0. The Hawks are dangerous. They showed that in leading Glidden at halftime before losing 25-13, and in beating Carroll, 6-0. Reason dictates Manilla as the choice. GUTHRIE CENTER over Greenfield. This is a shot in the dark. Coach Jerry Martin is looking for his first win at Guthrie after losing to Jefferson, Manning and Glidden. Could be that' Greenfield will be the victim. Guthrie Center has not jelled but has the capability of becoming a rough team to handle before the season ends. LAKE VIEW over Wall Lake. A bruising battle between traditional foes, but it looks like another Lake mentor. The Knights have worked long and hard for this game. The sessions were the most gruelling the Red and Gold have put in this season. The Ramblers from Omaha should present another formidable foe. Holy Name has won 14 of their last 15 games. The winning streak of the Ramblers was broken two weeks ago when Lincoln (Pius) nipped Holy Name 27-26. Their other two games resulted in victories. Omaha (Cathedral) was tripped 13-12 and Bellevue, Neb., lost 20-7 last week. Holy Name will be led by big Chuck Sladovnik. The 6 4 IJo pounder, plays both end and halt- back. Two sophomores are expected to figure heavily in the plans ot Coach Bob Gates. They are ciuarterback Steve Balkovec and lefthalf Leo Engle. Balkovec has been impressive with his ball handling and will handle most of the passing. Seven Lettermen The Ramblers will start seven lettermen in their opening lineup. Considerable emphasis has been placed by the Knight coaching staff in building up replacements. Among those who should see action are Denny Schechinger at center, John Nagl at blocking back, Pat Moehn at guard and Tackle Mike Schaeffer. This is the first year that Moehn and Schaeffer have been out for football. Coa h Sovich also had special praise for Bob Rettenmaier. Sovich termed Rettenmaier one of the hardest workers on the squad and a leading hustler. Tom Champion and Fred Dolezal are still bothered by injuries and they are slated for only duty. The Knights received no new injuries in last week's loss. The Ramblers will outweigh Kuemper by eleven pounds per man as the Knights attempt to obtain their first victory of the year. Probable starting lineups: HOLY NAME LE—Chuck Sladovnik, 12, 185 LT—Tom Luby, 12, 195 LG—Bruce Lauritsen, 12, 165 C—Tom Smith, 11, 182 RG—Steve Larsen, 11, 172 RT—Conde Burkhiser, 12, 183 RE—Mike Fowler, 11, 155 QB—Steve Balkovec, 10, 168 LH—Les Engle, 10, 196 RH—Mike Conway, 12, 161 FB—Tom Tedesco, 11, 172 Line Average—176 Back Average—174 Team Average—175 .KUEMPER LE—Jim Goetzinger, 11, 163 LT—Larry Brown, 12, 180 LG—Paul Collison, 11, 130 C—Tom Schleisman, 12, 170 KG—Jack Schleisman, 11, 160 RT—Tom Champion, 11, 205 RE—Tom Dolezal, 10, 180 QB—Jerry Gehling, 11, 144 LH—Fred Dolezal, 11, 145 RH—Steve Macke, 11, 151 FB—Dale Wenck, 12, 179 Line Average—170 Back Average—155 Team Average—164 Both Clubs Confident as Series Opens; Sox Continue as Favorite By ED WILKS Associated Press Sports Writer CHICAGO (AP) — A standing room crowd of nearly 50,000 was anticipated today ! in Comiskey Park for the opener of what could prove the fjchest World Series. The Chicago White Sox, who inched their way to their first American League pennant in 40 years, remained 11-10 favorites over the Los Angeles Dodgers, National League champions, in the best-of-seven series. They were given that edge because they've had four days of rest. The Dodgers^ too weary to bother with a workout Wednesday, had to dispose of Milwaukee's two- time champions in a playoff Tuesday. With crafty Early Wynn (22-10) pitching the opener against Los Angeles' Roger Craig (11-5), the Sox also were favored 11-10 to win today's first game. Game time was 1 p.m., Eastern Standard Time. The weather forecast called for ,cloudy skies—but no rain—and temperatures ranging no higher than near 60. NBC telecast and broadcast the game. Both clubs, naturally, were confident. But Manager Al Lopez, who just signed a $50,000 Sox contract for 1960, qualified his zest by adding, "It will take the best efforts of everyone." That's the way the will-o'-the-wisp White Sox, batting a mere .250 as a club and hitting only 97 home runs (low in the majors), won the flag. Manager Walt Alston, meanwhile, answered a query about Los Angeles' chances by pointing out that while his Dodgers won 8 of their last 10 games for the pennant, they were 5-0 against the two top contenders. They whipped San Francisco three straight to take first place on the next-to-last weekend, then belted the Braves two straight in the playoff. The White Sox* clinched their first flag since 1919 by beating Cleveland in the 151st game of the 154-game schedule. That gave them a 15-7 record over the second-place Indians. The lineups for the opener were pretty well set some 24 hours early. Lopez, figuring to platoon at third base and in right field, tabbed shortstop Luis Aparicio, who led the majors with 56 stolen bases, as his leadoff man, as usual. Then came Nellie Fox (2b), Jim Landis (cf), Ted Kluzewski Tiger, Girardello Headed for Rematch CHICAGO (AP) — Dick Tiger, the British Empire middleweight champion, and Joey Girardello, veteran of 101 fights, are heading for a rematch. When and where has yet to be 1 determined.

Bubba Phillips will replace 1917 before the infamous Black Sox lost the 1919 series to Cincinnati. Goodman at third and rookie Jim I The Dodgers are 1-8 in previous McAnany will take over for Rivera in right against left-handed pitching. The Dodgers, bunching four left- handed hitters among the first five batters against the right-handed Wynn, lead off with switch-hitter Junior Gilliam (3b). Then corrie Charlie Neal (2b) and lefties Wally Moon (If), Duke Snider (cf) and Norm Larker (rf). Gil Hodges (Ib) bats sixth, followed by John Roseboro (c), Maury Wills <ss) and Craig. The White Sox, who have won five pennants, have a 2-1 World Remember Way Back When Nineteen Thirty-Four— The Rev. Henry Schneider, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, has received an unanimous call from First Presbyterian Church, Boone. Rev. Schneider has accepted the call and asked for a release from the Carroll church. Nineteen Thirty-Four— Mrs. E. M. Byerly has sold the property at 708 North Main Street, one door north of the Methodist Church, to Mike Tessandori. The residence was recently vacated by Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Rickman. Nineteen Thirty-Four— The Gray Garage, which is now handling Hudsons and Terraplanes in this vicinity, has just received their/new cars and have them on display in their showroom.

This is their first chance since the shift to Los Angeles from Brooklyn two years ago. The Series moves to the National League park Sunday, after a day off for travel, for the third, fourth and, if necessary, fifth games. If it goes six or seven games, they'll be played in Comiskey Park, after another day off for travel. It's the Dodgers' sprawling Coliseum, seating 94,000 or so for baseball, which should make this the top money Series, IN VETERAN'S HOSPITAL (Time* Herald New* Service) WESTSIDE — Robert Kaspersen drove Henry Jessen to Omaha Tuesday where he entered the Veteran's Hospital.
