Too 'Of

Wolverine Scout Reports That Gophers,
'Have Excellent Balance...Good Depth'

YORK (JP)-Seventy-year-
rles Dillon (Casey) Sten-

"so that Stengel may be put in
the Hall of Fame at once."

the most successful manager
baseball history, bowed out
rday as boss of the New York
kees in an aura of bitterness
r having been advised by his
loyers he no longer fitted into
r plans.
he master strategist, who had
the Yankees to 10 pennants

Johnson Honored
Right end Bob Jqhnson was
med United Press Inter-
tional's midwest lineman of
e week for his play against
wthwestern. He was instru-
mtal in both Michigan TDs,
the Wolverines 14-7 defeat of
e Wildcats.

At one point, Stengel remarked
acidly, "Mr. Webb (co-owner Del
Webb) is letting Mr. Topping run
the club."
At another point, he said point-
edly, "when Weiss was running the
club, he was the boss, and if I told
him I wanted somebody he went
right out and got him."
Once warmed up, Casey didn't1
let up.

"They're the closest thing to the
Chicago Bears I've ever seen in a
college team."
This was Michigan end coach
Jack Nelson's first comment on
the undefeated Minnesota power-
house which rolls into Ann Arbor
to meet Michigan this Saturday in
the battle for the Little Brown
Nelson witnessed Minnesota's

victories over Northwestern and,
Illinois the past two weeks. The
Gophers, who have also beaten
Nebraska and Indiana, are the
fourth undefeated team Michigan'
has met this year.
"Minnesota," continued Nelson,
"has excellent balance and does,
everything, well."
Good Depth
"They have good depth. It was
the second team which scored the
winning touchdown against Illi-


'Paid Me Off in Full'
"Yes, sir," he barked, "Mr. Top-E
ping and Mr. Webb paid me off in
full and told me my services were
no longer desired because they
want to put in a youth program
as an advance way of keeping the
club going. That was their ex-
cuse-the best they've got.
"I heard from outside, from
friends and writers, that they (the
front office) didn't like some of
the things I was doing, that they
didn't like my way of running the,
club, that I didn't know managing
from beans."
Did Stengel think a man of 70
was too old to manage?
"It depends on what you can
instill in a club," he replied, "and
how you run a club. This club,
for instance, is a fighting club but
it has to be keyed up. The results
(pennant in 1960) proved it."

There was no immediate nam-
g of Stengel's successor although
is believed that Ralph Houk,
arrently the first base coach, will
et the job.
The grey-haired, gravel-voiced
tengel went out roaring. He be-

Castigates Yank Owners
But before much time had

oice loud and caustic, was bitter-

)r his dismissal, which he con-
dered unfair and unjustified.
It was obvious that the chief
arget of his criticism was Top-
ing, the club president, who

reat manager" and suggesting
hat the ruled' should be changed

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY," CASEY-Casey Stengel seems happy as he
fondles trophy presented to him early in September by the
Baseball Writers of America for "service to baseball." His 70th
birthday is referred to on the trophy. Yesterday Casey's happiness
turned to sadness as he was released by the New York Yankees
for being too old.

SAE, ZBT Win First-Round Tilts

The Air Force may ,have its
Titan, the Army its Minuteman,
but the Navy football team thinks
they can top them both with two
goal to goal missles named Joe
Bellino and Joe Matalavage.
Bellino and Matalavage are not
mechanized but rather "theclosest
thing to Blanchard and Davis
since Blanchard and Davis," ac-
cording to Navy plebe coach Jack
Tough on Opponents
McQuary may be a little pre-
judiced but it is unlikely whether
he will hear any dissenting words
from Navy's first five opponents.
Bellino and Matalavage have gone
over, through, and around the
opposition to help Navy defeat
Boston College, 22-7, Villanova,
41-7, Washington, 15-14, SMU,
26-7, and the Air Force 35-3.
Bellino, the "Mr. Outside" of
the duo, is a 5', 10" 185-pound
senior who came into his own
in last year's game against Army
when he scored three touchdowns.
This year he has picked up
where he left off against Army.
After warming up with four touch-
downs against Boston College and
Villanova, Bellino stamped him-
self for All-American honors
against SMU and the Air Force.
Agaiist SMU in the rain Bellino
gained 93 of Navy's 157 yards on
the ground, quick kicked twice

setting up one touchdown, com-
pleted his only pass for six yards
and a touchdown, and.returned a
punt 63 yards to set up another
In the Air Force game Bellino
scored from one yard out, from
15 yards. and caught a 25 yard
touchdown pass.
After the Middies upset Wash-
ington, Husky coach Jim Owens
commented disgustedly, "He (Bel-
lino) makes you look like you
don't practice tackling very much."
The other half of the Navy
touchdown twins is 6', 195-pound
fullback Matalavage, who has
spent most of the season in Bel-
lino's shadow.
Hurt in the opener against Bos-
ton College Matalavage came back
against SMU to gain 56 yards in
ten carries, including a 30 yard
touchdown run. He also scored
one of the touchdowns that Bel-
lino didn't against the Air Force.
Into High Gear
Navy's touchdown combination
is just beginning to swing into nigh
gear for the first time. Last sea-
son, Matalavage's first as a starter,
found Bellino injured most of the
year. This season Bellino has been
fit but Matalavage has been

Minnesota is anchored by a 225
pound line and a backfield which
averages over 200. pounds. Ac-
cording to Nelson, their line speed
"is close to the Michigan line."
Sixth-ranked nationally, the,
Gophers are currently the top
defensive team in the Big Ten.
They lead the conference in in-
terceptions and have. given up
the least points., They have held
Illinois, quarterbacked by Johnny
Easterbrook, and Northwestern,
led by Dick Thornton, to a total
of 10 points.
Big Backs
The backfield is composed of
Stephens, 6'1", 205; Judge Dick-
son, 6'2", 210; Roger Hagberg,
6'2", 206; and sophomore Bill
Munsey, 511", 195. Munsey is the
only starter under 200 pounds.

polished up their offense. Right
half Denny Fitzgerald, who missed
the Northwestern game with a
blood infection, ran with his fa-
miliar zest.
Todd Grant did not dress for
practice. The big junior center
suffered a bruised foot Saturday.
Coach Bump Elliott called him "a
good bet" to be back in action for
Minnesota. End George Mans and
guard Guy Curtis have apparently
shaken off minor knee ailments
and are at full strength:

Sharp passing and steadfast de-,
fense marked action in the Sociali
Fraternity "A" football action yes-'
terday, as Sigma Alpha Epsilon1
and Zeta Beta Tau rolled to vic-
tories in the first round of the
first-place playoffs.
The strong passing arm of Jack
Mogk was the chief weapon in1
the diversified SAE attack as they
shut out Chi Phi, 18-0. Mogk pass-
ed for two of the SAE counters
and ran for the other. He made
three clutch interceptions to
choke off three Chi Phi drives.
First TD Pass to Jones
Mogk's first TD toss was gath-
ered in by Joe Jones, who went
over for the score. Mike Ratter-
man was on the receiving end of
a 40-yard Mogk aerial that result-
ed in SAE's second TD. Then, when
all of his receivers were covered,
Mogk showed his versatility by'
running 10-yards for the final
An aroused Chi Phi defense
stopped each extra point attempt,
and managed to hold the SAE of-
fense to 18 points, while seeing
four of its own drives snuffed out
by pass interceptions.
Zeta Beta Tau edged Sigma Phi
Epsilon, 20-16, using balanced
scoring and a good defense to
keep in the running for the first-
place playoff championship. ZBT
was led by the quarterbacking and
extremely fine passing of Mike
Kukas threw three touchdown

passes, to Les Benet, Norm Mos-
cow, and Harley Kripke. Dan
Stone scored the extra point for
ZBT. George Fead led the Sigma
Phi Epsilon' attack with 14 points.
Jim Park scored the extra point.
Delta Tau Delta rolled over
Lambda Chi Alpha, 30-6, in the
only other first-place playoff of
the day. Lars Anderson, John
Hoos, and Bob Pierce cou tered
eight points each for the Delts,
and Ray Ross chipped in with six.
Chi Psi Wins
In a second-place playoff game,
Chi Psi downed Phi Sigma Delta,
16-6. Chi Phi drew first blood,
scoring on a 50-yard pass play,
Tom Watson to Verne Istock. The
alert Phi Sig defense broke up the
extra point pass.
Moments later, Watson inter-
cepted a pass, then, on the ensuing
play, calmly stepped back and fir-
ed another scoring aerial to
Istock, who was all alone in the
end zone. The extra point failed,
and the first half ended, 12-0.
Phi Sigma Delta scored early in
the second half on a pass from Gil
Aher to George Fink. The aroused
Chi Psi defense foiled the extra
point attempt. The game was put
out of reach in the closing min-
utes as Mike Hammond and Jim
Weber caught the PSD quarter-
back in the end zone for safeties.
Close Game
Kappa Sigma edged Delta Sig-
ma Phi, 20-12, in a close second-
place playoff game of the day.
Bob Dill, Terry Pakela, and Bruce
Gordon all scored 6 points each,

and Jerry O'Shaughnessy added'
two for the victors.
Sigma Chi rolled over Phi Sig-
ma Kappa, 28-0, in another sec-
ond-place game.
In a third-place playoff game,
Alpha Sigma Phi shutout Phi Kap
pa Psi, 14-0. Jim Damn scored
eight and Sandy Stewart contri-
buted six to the Alpha Sigma at-
tack. '
Shutouts were scored in the re-
maining two social fraternity
games. In a third-place tilt Delta
Kappa Epsilon downed Tau Kap-
pa Epsilon, 12-0, and Tau Epsilon
Phi edged Alpha Kamp Lambda, 8-
0, in a fourth-place playoff.
Triangle forfeited their fourth-
place game to Alpha Epsilon Pi.
In independent action Gom-
berg's Olded Element downed
AFIT, 8-0, Trust edged Evans
Scholars by the same score, and
Nakamura rolled over ASCE, 28-0.
In other games the Canadiens
romped over the NADS, by the
score of 30-0, the Hawaiians edged
Owen, 14-12, and Frederick shut-
out CMS, 14-0, in a hard-fought
game that ended the night's

Return to normalcy!
There is no Tougaloo-Philander Smith game for you to pick this
week, but what about the Brown Jug tilt? Minnesota has yet to lose
with an impressive four wins, and they are ranked sixth in the na-
Michigan hasn't exactly been a slouch either, however, as the
Maize and Blue have rolled to a 3-1 mark over some equally stiff
opposition. Do you think the speed of the Wolverines can offset the
massiveness of the Gophers?
Select the winner of this game and include the score to break
any possible ties that might develop. Also decide who you think will
come out on top of the other 19 games and send your entry to Grid
