:nee Injury Ends Tackle's Career;
'eam Prepares for H awkeye Contest

Lions Top Rams for First Win;
Colts, Browns Remain Undefeated

By AL JONEI;
Daily Sports Edtor
Although no Michigan players.
ere seriously hurt in the Minne-
ota game Saturday, the team
iffered the loss of another player
)r the season yesterday.
Tackle Willie Smith, who sat
ut the Gopher battle with a bad
nee, may have to undergo an'
peration to repair torn muscles.
'his is the third key senior that
oah Bennie Oosterbaan has lost
his season.
Impressive Player
Smith was one of the heaviest
nemen on the Michigan squad at
35 lbs., and played impressively
i the first few contests of the
ear. Oosterbaan feels that the'
0s will weaken the Wolverine
ne, although senior Gray has
pled in well the past two weeks.
At practice yesterday he began
reparation for what may be the
iughest game on Michigan's 1958
hedule. The Wolverines face
wa this Saturday, and the
awkeyes at present hold first
lace in the Big Ten.
Tie Only Blemish
Coach Forest Evashevski's team
as won three Conference battles
- over Northwestern, Wisconsin
nd Indiana-and seem on their
ay to a Big Ten title. Their
cord is blemished only by a tie
ith the Air Force Academy, and
hey will presumably be the top
ig Ten team in the national
Alls this week.
The Hawks also are the top
ffensive team in the Conference,
nd quarterback Randy Duncan
the individual offensive leader.
.legal Pass
Seats Va. Tech
While viewing films of their
1-20 loss to West Virginia, Vir-
inia Tech players saw the play,
iat beat them develop out of an
legal formation.
The Mountaineers lined up for
elr final extra point attempt in
fake place-kick formation, with
ft tackle Dick Guesman doing
he kicking and quarterback Dick
ongfellow kneeling to hold.
The maneuver made Mel Whip-
ey, who caught the surprise pass
om Longfellow, ineligible. He was
1 the right tackle position.

The Iowa line has also been im-
pressive and ranks high in de-
fense.
Thus, Oosterbaan has a tough'
task ahead in preparing for the
Hawkeyes. Michigan's g reatest
weakness, pass defense, is Iowa's
and Duncan's strong point. This
will be foremost in the Michigan
plans for the week.
Saifling Clubi
Wins Regatta
Michigan copped the Sailing
Regatta at Monticello, Indiana,
this past weekend.
Led by Dexter Thede, Michigan
scored 72 points to best Notre
Dame and University of Detroit.
Host Purdue came in fourth fol-
lowed by Ohio State and Indiana.
Otto Scherer of Michigan led
the individual scoring of the re-
gatta with 38 points.
Crewing for skippers Thede and
Scherer were Linda Quaggle andF
Fred Rotz.

The only two Wolverines who
were injured in the Minnesota vic-
tory were completely recovered by
the game's end. Halfback Darrell
Harper, the running star of the
game, had an ankle cramp during
the fourth quarter, and sat out the
rest of the game. He is com-
pletely recovered.I
Quarterback Bob Ptacek, whose
ankle injury from the Northwest-
ern game began to bother him in
the fourth quarter last Saturday,
is also recovered. Unless he should
r"injure himself this week, he will
be ready for Iowa.
McNitt Sees Action
Gary McNitt, sophomore half-
back who has nursed a bad foot'
most of the season, was back in
action and running with the sec-
ond string yesterday.
Jim Byers, fullback who hasn't:
played yet because of a pre-season
knee injury, did his first scrim-
maging against the freshman yes-
terday.
Guard Tom Jobson is still out
of action and hasn't been dressing
for practice.

scored three touchdowns this fall.
Winning All-American honors
Is nothing new for Duncan as he
won them as a quarterback for
Roosevelt High School in Des
Moines. He also picked up all-state
honors in basketball, but hasn't
pursued this sport at Iowa.
A modest, quiet player on and
off the field, never cocky, he is a
big contrast to an earlier Michigan
opponent, Navy's daring and color-
ful Joe Tranchini.
Duncan is the third in a series
of fine quarterbacks developed by
Coach Forest Evashevski. The Iowa
coach has had under his tutelage

SURE ARM-Randy Duncan, Iowa's star quarterback, leads the
Hawkeyes Into Michigan Stadium this weekend. Duncan, second
in the Big Ten Conference last year in passing now holds top
ranking. He operates from a winged-T.

Dufek added, "Duncan has a
terrific passing arm and is a fine
all-around offensive player." The
Michigan coach also had words of
praise for Duncan's receivers, "The
Hawkeye backs as well as their
ends are good pass catchers, giving
Duncan a wide choice of receivers."
Dufek singled out junior left end
Curt Merz who caught two touch-
down passes against the Wildcats

and senior right end Don Norton
as Duncan's favorite targets,
