Line Coach
Sees Much
With backs snaring most of the
football headlines, the "inside
men" of Michigan's line have often
been cast in a secondary role.
Leading many of the offensive'
Splays,the starting Wolverine
guards, Jerry Marciniak and Alex
Callahan have provided steady line
play in an undistinguished foot-
ball season.
Marciniak, who received his prep
training in Terry Brennan's Chi-
cago stamping ground, moved in
to fill a large hole left by last
year's starter, Mary Nyren. Play-
ing an understudy role, the guard
from Mt. Carmel High made
enough progress to nail down the
starting assignment.
Marciniak Improved
"He's improved every year and
is playing his best ball this sea-
son," observed line coach Jack
Blott. Preparing for his final game,
Marciniak concentrated attentions
on stopping the swift moving
Buckeye backs Saturday.
Working with Marciniak on the
other side of center, Callahan
moved up from relative obscurity
to the Wolverine front line. "He's
made startling progress this sea-
son," noted Blott. Looking to next
season, he added, "Cal's eperience
will make him even more valuable
next year,"
Likeliest man 'to share the
"guarding duties" with Callahan
next year appears to be sophomore
Tom Jobson. Injured early in the
season, he worked his battered
leg into shape and appeared in the
Indiana game to relieve Marciniak.
"He shows all signs of developing
into a top lineman," Blott com-
Last Chance
Ohio State's fired-up Buckeyes
provide the last chance for the
Wolverines to redeem themselves
in the Conference win column.
Stressing defense, Blott ran the
reserves through Buckeye plays
to give the line experience against
the OSU rushing offense.
The Wolverine offensive units
were drilled in the importance of
accurate passing.

Louisiana State goes into Satur-
day's traditional battle with#
Tulane owning a spotless record
and No. 1 rating among the na-
tion's football powers.
Although LSU prevailed over
Mississippi State by a point, 7-6,
the Tigers drew overwhelming sup-
port in the weekly Associated Press
poll of sports writers and sport
casters. They pulled 114 of 183
first place votes and 1,640 points.
LSU is the only unbeaten, untied
team in major college football now
that Rutgers has been beaten by
the Quantico Marines.
Auburn, tied by Georgia Tech
in early season, moved up to sec-
end place in the poll after whip-
ping Georgia 21-6. The Army
rolled over Villanova 26-0 and re-
mained in third position. Okla-
homa subdued Missouri 39-0 to

attract 22 firsts and a fourth-
place position.
Wisconsin remained in fifth
place, a notch ahead of Iowa
which bowed to Ohio State, 38-28.
Ironically when the Hawkeyes and
Badgers met. Iowa won 20-9.
The top 10 teams:
1. La. State (114) 9-0) . 1,640

THE BIG TRY-Darrell Harper (left) talks with backfield coach
Bump Elliott just before going on the field last Saturday to try
the crucial field goal attempt against Indiana. The kick was only a
few feet off, and the Hoosiers won the game, 8-6.

Frosh Squad Hails from Nie States Canada

The superlatives are spared when
freshman football coach Don
Dufek talks about his charges.
"They're a fair group but by no
means great," says Dufek. "How-
ever, they appear to be a little
better than last year's squad. This
could be a result of our having
worked harder in recruiting."
This last statement is borne out
by sheer numbers. On the 1957
frosh squad, players came from six
states plus Canada. This year's
plebes hail from Canada and nine
states including Michigan.
Distant Recruits y
The bigger emphasis on recruit-
ing in order to lift Michigan out
of its unaccustomed position in
the Big Ten doldrums is also illus-
trated by the quality of players
garnered from distant regions.
John Haley and Bennie McRae,
the two speediest freshmen, call
Bethesda, Md., and Newport News,
Va., home respectively. Both are
rated by Dufek as fine prospects.
"At this stage of their develop-
ment they have come along real
well," says the youthful coach.
Also from out-of-state are two
outstanding quarterback candi-
dates, Paul Palmer and John Sta-

Palmer, who led the Blue team1
to an 18-12 intra-squad victory
Monday, is from Toronto, Canada
and was offered a tryout by the
professional Hamilton Tiger Cats
while still in high school. He de-
clined, of course, in order to come
to Michigan.
Stamos, a 6'2", 200-pounder, is
from Chicago's Lane Tech, also
the alma mater of Wolverine end

Varsity Material
The Wolverines also picked up
their share of outstanding Michi-
gan high school players, a great
percentage of them being linemen.

Some of them whd Dufek re-
gards as top varsity material for
next fall include ends Jim Koro-
win, Wyandotte; Bill Stawski,
Caledonia, and Wayne Sickler,
Calumet; tackle Jon Schopf, Grand
Rapids; guards Wally Herrala,

The last week of college football traditionally features games
between great rivals.
Indicative of these struggles are the Michigan-Ohio State, Purdue-
Indiana, Harvard-Yale, USC-UCLA, and California-Stanford games.
In the case of these rivalries favoritism and point spreads usually
mean little, so anyone picking these games must seriously deliberate
before making their choices.
This is true in the case of anyone who enters this, the final Grid
Picks Contest of the year. To enter, cut the list of games printed below
out of The Daily, plainly circle your choices, predict the score of the
Michigan-Ohio State game, and, send your selections to Grid Picks,
The Michigan Daily, 420 Maynard, Ann Arbor.
Entries may also be filled out in person at The Daily. The contest
closes midnight Friday, and each contestant may enter only once.
The winner will receive two free tickets to the State Theater,
which currently is showing "Torpedo Run."
