Anticlimactically, the Telco Tools of Cleveland rolled a final block of 3,115, highest of the tournament, to sweep from 27th to sixth place.
Stroh and Maibach will roll a 24-game home-and-home match for the championship, with the opening 12-game block taking place Nov. 27-28 in Akron and the finale Dec. 4-5 in Detroit. The Strohs believe they will retain their title, but they probably will not be overconfident against the plucky Ohioans. Buzz Fazio, Stroh captain, is particularly thoughtful. He used to live in Akron and was a teammate of Clyde Potter.
