DETROIT FREE PRESS Thursday. Oct. 18. 1951 gfl Wrigl ej Sees PGL a 3rd Major League in Reasonable Time9 DETROITER BRANDEIS STARTER opes Wayne Will Sink BY GEORGE PUSCAS As an astute student of opera and the concert stage, young Ray Gilbert is familiar with most of the world's great "tragedies." Now he is thinking of creating his own simply by helping his Brandeis University football team whip Wayne University this week-end. That, indeed, would be a tragedy. For the helpless Tartars, who have lost nine straight games, are rated slight favorites over the Judges. Gilbert is a Detroiter who strayed to the East in pursuit of an education and a career. He played several years ago at Central High School. He's a veteran of the 1950 Brandeis squads the first the ' new school fielded. GILBERT SPENT last summer at the famed Tanglewood Music Center at Berkshire, Mass. He has been a winner on a television talent show and played the lead in several Gil bert and Sullivan operettas. A 210-pound tackle, Gilbert is gaining distinction in New England as the singing football player, much in the fashion of Yale's Tony Lavelii, the accordionist-basketball star. Bennie Friedman, former Michigan AU-American who coaches the Brandeis squad, is confident that his young grid-ders will give Wayne trouble. . The Judges have won two of their three games this season. They bowed in the opener to the University of New Hampshire, 23 to 20, then came back to beat Hofstra, 24 I y j RAY GILBERT Brandeis' 'Singing Tackle to 13, and American International, 26 to. 0. Friedman gained AU-American honors while at Michigan in the middle 1920s because of his great passing ability. It is to be expected that his team will make good use of the aerial game. LOU ZARZA, Wayne's head coach, is particularly worried by that fact, for Wayne's weakest link this season has been its pass defense. The Tartars have, been caught On 31 of 50 opponent passes. Wayne has been concentrating most of the week on defense, while avoiding heavy work. The Tartars still expect to miss Quarterback Dick Brown and Left Half Roger Craig, who are sidelined with ankle injuries. They are being replaced by Dick Lisabeth and Dick Piper, both freshmen. The Wayne-Brandeis game is slated for 2:15 p. m. Saturday in U. of D. Stadium. Keane Moves lo Columbus Nine COLUMBUS, O.-(U.R) Johnny Keane, pilot of the Rochester Red Wings for the last three years, will manage the Columbus Red Birds, of the American Association. Keane succeeds Harry (Cappy) Walker, who takes Keane's old job at Rochester. IN TWIN VALLEY LOOP East Lansing Game with Marshall Tops BY BOB WALDORF Football Coach, Battle Cik High School Member Free Press All State Grid Board Attention among Class B schools in this area Friday night will be focused on Marshall's invasion of East Lansing. These two Twin Valley Conference rivals are unbeaten and Lansing is unscored on. Marshall will rely upon the running and passing of Bill Burns and the defensive play of End Gene Brunson. East Lansing will counter with the fine running and passing of Ron Harden and Jack Huffman, along with the receiving of End Bill Walling. Vern Kaiser Star in Buffalo Victory BUFFALO, N. Y. (U.P.) Left Winger Vern Kaiser scored two goals and set up the third as the Buffalo Bisons defeated the Cincinnati Mohawks, 3 to 1, to gain their first victory of the American Hockey League season.

Jffx, . . S SHOULD MARSHALL win, it still will have to get by a strong Niles outfit the following eek in an inter-sectional clash. The next two weeks will tell the story for Marshall. Bronson defeated Union City, 14 to 6, to virtually clinch the Little C Conference title. In the game with Union City the punting of Max Hilton was definitely the decid ing factor. Battle Creek St. Philip now has a comfortable lead over all other rivals in the Catholic League of Southern Michigan, thanks to a 25-0 victory over Jackson St. Johns. This triumph was achieved through the stellar running of Dave Haan and the great defensive play of its giant tackles, John Jereck and Gerry McDonald. It is rapidly becoming evident that St. Philip has one of the strongest Class C clubs in this area. ANN ARBOR continues to roll among Class A teams in central and southern Michigan. When the Pioneers beat us the other night we were fortunate in holding the score to 6 to 0. We were particularly impressed with the running of Prentiss Ware and John Bat-sakes, Pioneer halfbacks, and with the defensive play of End Jim Cartwright. Fullback George Pullen contributed the best run of the evening, a 31-yard touchdown run which was nullified by a clipping penalty. I can sincerely say that this year's Ann Arbor team is one of the strongest high school squads I have ever seen in this section of the state. Ypsilanti hasn't lost a game on the field, although forced to forfeit two of its triumphs because of an ineligibility. In my opinion-, Ypsilanti is the only team that stands a chance to defeat Ann Arbor. These rivals meet Oct. 26. Although I have not seen Ypsilanti play, I would have to consider Ann Arbor a heavy favorite. Suggests Solution for Key Issue Cub Owner Would Put Draft Up to Players WASHINGTON (JP) Phil Wrigley, who owns the Chicago Cubs and the Los Angeles base ball teams, said he thinks the Pacific Coast League may become a third major league "in a reasonable length of time." Wrigley didn't say how long "a reasonable length of time" may be. This question was put to him whn he appeared before a House judiciary subcommittee studying baball's complex organization: "If it (the Pacific Coast League) wers exempted from the draft, do you think that in a reasonable length of time it would become a major league ?" Wrigley 's reply: "I do." THF SUBCOMMITTEE is trying to find out whether baseball violates the anti-trust laws and is a monopoly. The Pacific Coast League question has bobbed up at alnost every session. The Coast League particularly dislikes the draft. This enables the major leagues to claim one player from each club at the end of each season for $10,000. The Coast League insists that this causes it to lose valuable talent at a fraction of its worth. The other side of the argument: If tne draft didn't exist, a minor league club owner could keep players on his club who really deserve a chance in the majors. Wrigley said he thinks a com promise can be worked out where by a player can decide whether or not he wants to be drafted, HE ALSO KNOCKED down another argument that has been presented against the Coast League: Their parks are too small. . "It's better," Wrigley said In rebuttal, "to have a small park filled regularly than a large park that is filled only occasionally." Nor did he go along with the theory that there is such a scar city of ballplayers three major leagues could not exist. "It's the competition that counts," he said. He pointed to the last World Series as an ex ample. Although the caliber of base ball presumably was of the highest, he said, when a game became onesided, the crowd left. Wrigley said he feels a league should be promoted to a higher classification as the country grows and population centers change.

Late Tally Breaks It Up Warren pushed across a touch down in the fourth quarter to defeat Centerline 13-7. Stanley Orlikowski went six yards off tackle for the winning marker after a 45-yard run by Bob McTav-ish had placed the ball on the six. McTavish scored on an eight-yard run to give Warren a 6-0 lead in the third quarter, but a touchdown by Tom Mears and a conversion put Centerline ahead with six minutes left in the final stanza.

Extra Duty for Topor U-M Back to Play 'Both Ways' at Iowa ANN ARBOR (JP) Ted Topor, Michigan's burly junior quarterback, may have to do double duty Saturday against the Iowa Hawk-eyes at Iowa City. Coach Bennie Oosterbaan had Topor back at his old line-backing spot on defense, and the coach indicated he will ask two-way duty from Topor at least part of the time. WEDNESDAY'S session was marked by unusually sharp playing on the part of the varsity. Halfbacks Don Oldham, Bill Pu- tich and Ted Kress made con sistent gains through the reserves. The Wolverine passers, paced by Putich, Topor and Fullback Don Peterson, hit frequently to Ends Lowell 'Perry and Fred Pickard for long gains. Oosterbaan will hold a short workout Thursday before the 40- man squad boards a train for Iowa City. There will be an overnight stop in Chicago. Syndicate Bids on Mudhens HOLLYWOOD QJ.R) Danny Menendez, business manager of the Hollywood Stars baseball club, disc'osed that he and a group of St. Louis associates have formed a syndicate to bid on the Toledo Mudhens, of the American Association.
