    Yanks Win Second
On DiMaggio's Homer
PHIA, (API- JoeDimaggio lined a
10th inning home run into the up
per left field stands Thursday to
give the New York Yankees’ Allie
Reynolds a 2-1 win over the Phils’
Robin Roberts in the second world
series game.
It was the favored American
League champs’ second stright vic
tory in the best-of-seven series be
fore 32,660 fans.
The Yankee Clipper’s belt, his
seventh in nine world series, broke
up a fine battle between the Yan
kee fire-balling righthander and 24
ycar-old Roberts, the Phils first
20-game winner since Grover Clev
eland Alexander.
First Extra Inning
The game Phils carried the
struggle down to the last out.
Pinchhitter Jack Mayo was on sec
ond base with the potential tying
run when Reynolds breezed a third
strike past Dick Sisler to end the
first extra inning series game since
the 1946 opener.
It was the second straight day
that Sisler had been struck out to
end the game.
Although nicked for 10 hits along
the route, Roberts was able to bear
down so well in the clutches that
the Yanks popped up his pitches
all afternoon. They didn’t hit a ball
on the ground until the eighth.
Still Reynolds, with an efficient
seven-hitter, well deserved his third

Roberts in a Jain
The Yanks had Roberts in a jam
in the first but failed to score.
They pushed over a run in the sec
ond on a walk to Gerry Coleman,
a single by Reynolds and an infield
single to shortstop Granny Hamner
by Gene Woodling. Woodling’s hit
drove in the run.
And that was all the Yanks were
to get until Casey Stengel’s “Big
Fellow” smashed a Ribert’s Pitch
into the seats leading off the tenth
The Phils, shut out yesterday by
Vic Raschi in the 1-0 opener, hadn’t
scored a series run in 13 innings un
til they finally moved Mike Goliat
home in the fifth. It was their first
series run, in fact, since their last
appearance in 1915.
Goliat singled on a bouncer to
ward second that Coleman had no
license to stop. The Yank second
baseman made a sensational play
to knock down the ball but threw
wildly to first with no chance to
get the runner. Fne back-up work
by Yogi Berra kept Goliat on first
Trying to bunt him over, Roberts
popped to Reynolds but Eddie

Gene Woodling, so deep that there

Two fine double plays, the first

He's Set for Montana
By Bill Gurney
Right in Lhe middle of the line;
that’s where this game of football
is really played. Ray Lung, letter
man varsity guard, is a man who
sees a lot of rugged action at that
unglamorous position. Which is
why Ray is one gridder you Web
foot fans should know better.
This is his senior year and his
third varsity season. Last year he
developed fast and played 289 min
utes as a defensive guard, making
several all-oponent teams. This
season he operates in both the of
fensive and defensive lineups,and
against UCLA even tried his hand
at punting.
Ray carries a solid 202 pounds
on his 5 foot 9 inch frame. He has
an explosive charge on defense,
and is a fine blocker. It looks as
though Mr. Lung is all set to capi
talize on his experience and do big
things in Aiken’s line.
Law Is Goal
A Fresno, California boy, Ray
gave as a reason for coming to
"I wanted to play against Cali
Here at Eugene, he is an Econ
omics major with a 2.7 grade aver
age.' Law School is his goal, how
ever he grinned and added, “If I
don’t get drafted.”
If he does, it won’t be the first
time. Ray has spent 22 months out
of his 23 years in service of his
country. Part of this time was
spent at the King’s Point, New Jer
sey Merchant Maiinc Academy.
Since this was wartime, he had
little opportunity to continue on
with football following his three
years at guard for Fresno High
Along with his teammate Gus
Knickrehm, Ray remembers last
year's Washington game as a
knockdown and dragout struggle
in which he really played football.
“Just Can’t Lose”
On the campus, Ray is an Order
of the O man and a Beta Theta Pi.
During the summer he makes
ice cream for the Arden farms in
Fresno, and likes to hunt and fish
whenever he can.
“What is your prediction for the
Montana game?” was a question
that put Ray on the spot. There
was no hesitation.
“We just can’t think about los
ing it,” said he, sounding very much
as though he meant just that.
DANCING 9:30-12:30
Rain and Soggy Turf
May Hamper Teams
One of the greatest aerial circuses on the Pacific Coast comes
to Eugene tomorrow afternoon when Montana s Giizzlies invade
Hayward Field for Oregon’s initial home football contest of the
season. The bovs from Missoula will be after their thiid stiaight
win while the Webfoots will be working to snap a seven-game
losing streak.
Game time is 1:30 p.m.
Saturday’s clash will be the fifth between the two schools. The
first meeting was in 1928, when the
Webfoots grabbed a 31-6 win— the
only time Montana has been able
to score. It was 13-0 for Oregon in
1934, 38-0 in 1940, and 34-0 in 1946.
Heavy rains this week have
threatened to weaken the attack of
both Montana and the host Oregon
eleven. Grizzly Coach Ted Shipkey
has no desire to cruise down a
river on a soggy afternoon, for
considerable of his happier mo
ments this year have been in
thoughts of one Quarterback Bob
Kingsford to Bauer
Rated by many as the best passer
in the Northwest, Kingsford has
been all but responsible for wins
over Idaho and Eastern Washing
ton. The 175-pound senior’s target
most of the time has been End Ray
Bauer, a 187-pound senior who
holds the Pacific Coast Conference
pass completion record. Bauer’s re
ceiving ability is at least equalled
by his defensive work.
Webfoot Coach Jim Aiken won’t
be so completely dependent upon
the air lanes for a good Saturday
night’s sleep, but a soggy turf cer
tainly won’t be helpful to his Tiny
Trio consisting of Tommy Edwards,
Hal Cuffel, and Bobo Moore.
The Oregons at least have had
the benefit of a week’s practice in
nearly steady rain. While Quarter
backs Earl Stelle and Hal Dunham
have been hurling successful passes
consistently through the rain, Aik
en also has provided heavy drills
for his backs*in search for better
chances in the mud.
Fullbacks Are ‘Mudders’
Sharing most of the ball-carry
ing in the mud this week have been
two fullbacks, Carl Ervin and Ron
Lyman. Ervin was switched to the
power post after starting the sea
son at right half.
While the Webfoots displayed a
fairly good defense against Cali
fornia’s vaunted running attack
this past weekend, they were guil
ty of several expensive lapses
against the Bear’s extra- feature
passing. The situation must at least
be reversed Saturday if Oregon ex
pects to win over the visitors, who
seldom needed more than three or
four plays in their scoring driVt^
against Idaho.
Aiken has concentrated on pass
defense sessions this week in an ef
fort to nullify the Kingsford-Bauer
threat, sessions which the Oregon
coach described as “the most sat
isfactory scrimmages we’ve had
this year.”
Still at Bottom
The Webfoots will go into the
contest resting at the bottom of
the Pacific Coa.^t Conference
standings, a position they will re
tain regardless of the outcome of
the meeting. Montana is competing
in its first year out of the confer
ence, after requesting and quickly
receiving permission to leave the
The battle Saturday will pro
vide an opportunity for two line
men to settle boyhood grievances.
