if- regular M. C.. is the Trotters'
number two center and the only
of Michigan high school graduate on
themfirst of three Saperstein
teams.
But he quickly dispels any no-
tions of resentment about sitting
out a great portion of the Trot-
ters' games in favor of Chamber-
lain.
"Nobody As Great"
"Actually it's a real pleasure to
play behind Wilt," says Burton.
"From a person like him, all you
can do is learn more and more. I
don't think anyone is as great as
he is."
The story of Burton's sensa-
tional rise to the number one unit
is a tale of success in itself.
Burton chose to attend Michi-
gan State last year after setting
all sorts of records at Muskegon
Heights. But he was forced to
drop out in June because of aca-
demic difficulties.
Moves Up Fast
Saperstein wasted no time in
signing the 6'7" star, with Burton

"I played exactly two days with
them," Burton recalls with a
smile, "and then I was asked to
play with the top outfit." '
Like all Trotter rookies, Burton
has his troubles adopting to the
fancy-dan style of play. "And I
miss the actualgame-like compe-
tition. But I have definite hopes
of playing with an NBA team aft-

success this year as his defending
champions, Detroit, have looked
brilliant at times in compiling a
3-5-1 record.
However, McLean has but one
victory to show for the year, a
38-35 decision over the Philadel-
phia Eagles. While his buddy from
1Halas U., Wilson, seems virtually,
ssured of a new contract for 1959,
McLean stands on shaky ground.
Worst Record in Sight
Green Bay is on the way to its
worst record in 39 years in the pro
league. The Packers now stand at
1-7-1, as they gave up a staggering
total of 539 yards in Sunday's loss
to San Francisco.
As usual, after a game with .the
Bears, Detroit is beset by injuries.
Quarterback Tobin Rote, ends Jim
Doran and Dave Middleton are ail-
ing, along with fullback John
Henry Johnson, who is still having
trouble with his leg.

Detroit has lost only one of these
holiday games since 1950, that,
being in 1956 when Green Bay
handed the high-flying Lions a
24-21 defeat which eventually cost
them the Western Division crown.
