Fumbles,

Take Away Brown Ju
AM Loses Ball Seven Times
To Hard-Hitting Minnesota Line

Living Up To Their Notices
"jHEN Michigan assistant backfield coach Jack Nelson called th
Minnesota football team "the closest thing to the Chicago Bear
I've ever seen in a college team" early last week, there were, those
who tended to disbelieve.
If the disbelievers were among the 69,352 who saw yesterday'
Brown Jug battle in the Michigan Stadium, there is a very goo
chance they have changed their mind.
Sure, the Gophers didn't have a spectacular offense, but they
didn't need one with their large collection of huge, hard-hitting line-
men.
Not only did the mammoth Gopher line contain the Wolverin
attack for a good part of the afternoon, but it also displayed th
proper blocking talents by opening holes in the Wolverine line.
After the game, Minnesota Coach Murray Warmath couldn'
say enough about "his boys." "We wanted to win, this one real bad,
said Warmath. Evidence of this was the tumultuous after-gam
celebration in the Minnesota locker room.
"In fact,'' said Warmath, " we were a little too anxious a'
the start of the game." The Minnesota coach was referring to the
game's third series of plays when halfback Tom King dropped
a 35 yard pass while wide open- on the Michigan 20, and the
following play when right end Bob Deegan dropped a 15 yarder
that would have given Minnesota a key first down inside the
Mtichigan 40.
Unfortunately, the Gophers forward wall displayed no suchl
nervousness as it more than lived up to its advance notices.
Not only did it keep the Wolverines bottled up in their ow
half of the field until late in the fourth quarter, but the Gopher
fofward wall also applied constant pressure that forced the Wolverines
to make mistakes which in the long run provided the difference in
the score.
The Wolverines fumbled five times in the course of the afternoor
and five times the ball-hawking Gophers recovered.
ONE OR TWO of the bobbles could be attributed to Michigan
mistakes, but most of the fumbles came as a result of Minnesota's
hard-hitting aggressive play.
The Gophers were particularly outstanding late in the fourth
quarter when they halted two Michigan desparation drives with
fine defensive play. On each occasion Michigan quarterback Dave
Glinka was the victim of Minnesota aggressiveness.
First on the Minnesota 14 and
then on the Gopher 30, Glinka
fumbled after the Gopher line
had roared in on him, faster than
it seemed physically possible.'
Warmath was expecially pleased
with his defense in the fourth
quarter calling it "superb". He
v said, "Our defense played a great
w game, forcing Michigan to make
several mistakes. They were never
better than they were in the
fourth quarter. Our rushing of
the passer gave us the best pos-
sible pass defense."
Pressure by the Gopher line was
directly responsible for both of
Minnesota's interceptions.
All in all, soph quarterback Dave
Glinka had a nightmarish after-
noon, attempting to- elude the
hard-rushing, pro-type Minnesota
line. Evidence of Glinka's diffi-
culties was his net rushing total
for the day - a ninus 34 yards.
Glinka was not the only Wol-
verine to have a frustrating after-
noon. Wolverine speedsters Dave
Raimey and Bennie McRae, whose
speed was to be the undoing of
the Gophers, were unable to
break loose all afternoon, al-
TOM BROWN though they came close on several
" * . Bruising Lineman occasions.
After the game Warmath said, with an obvious sigh of relief,
"We were very lucky to contain their speed - very lucky."

this position several times during their 10-0 set-back yesterday.

Celtics Win in Final Scons

By The Associated Press
BOSTON-A last quarter Bos-
ton surge overtook Detroit 118-
116, last night as the Celtics
opened defense of their National
Basketball Association title.
Bob Cousy, the Celtics' inspira-
tional leader, guided the surge as
the home forces steadily wore
down a five point Detroit lead.
The score was tied seven times
and the lead changed hands on
eight occasions in the final 12
minutes before Tommy Heinsohn
hit on a 20-foot jump shot with
two seconds remaining to break a
116-116 tie.'
Cousy who led Boston scorers
with 30 points, registered a
string of 13 straight in the last
quarter, keeping the Celtics mo-
mentum moving as Detroit fought
to keep pace.
His last two points were a cou-
ple of free throws that tied it at
112. Then he assisted on a Hein-
sohn bucket to give the Celtics a
two point lead.
Bailey Howell's two free throws:
tied it again before Jim Loscut-f
off hit from the corner. Rookie'
Don Ohl scored from the key with
20 seconds left to tipe thp. n"

Howell paced Piston scorers
with 27 points and Gene Shue
contributed 24. Heinsohn's 24 fol-,
lowed Cousy for the Celtics.

CINCINNATI 119, NEW YORK 117
CINCINNATI-Jack Twyman's
clutch basket and Bob Boozer's
two free throws clinched a 119-
117 win for the Cincinnati Royals
against the New York Knicks in
yesterday's NBA television "game
of the week"-at Cincinnati Gar-
den.
Twyman picked up a loose ball
and fired in a 10-foot jump shot'
with 54 seconds left, and Boozer,
put the game on ice with a pair

with 28 points. The Nats led at
the end of the first period 38-32
after having had a 15-point bulge
and they were ahead by 11 before
finishing the half with a 67-60
lead.
ST. LOUIS 112, LOS ANGELES 96
ST. LOUIS - The St. Louis
Hawks, seeking their fifth con-
secutive Western Division title in
the National Basketball Associa-
tion, defeated the Los Angeles
Lakers 112-96 last night.
The Hawks' front line of Clyde
Lovellette, Cliff Hagan and Bob
Pettit sparked them in their de-
but. Lovellette hit 28 points, Ha-

of free throws 20 seconds later. gan 27 and Pettit 22.

The win was the third straight{
for the Royals, surpassing theirl
Slongest victory string of the last
two seasons.
Phil Jordan led the Royals with1
28 points, while Willie Naulls and
Richie Guerin, who led the Knicks
final rally attempt, scored 34 and
27 respectively. New York scored
40 points in the frantic fourth
quarter in a great last-ditch ef-
fort.

St. Louis opened up an early
lead and was never headed by the
Lakers, transferred from Minne-
apolis since last season. It was
Los Angeles' second defeat in as
many NBA starts.
Rudy LaRusso led Los Angeles
with 28 points and teammate El-
gin Baylor contributed 25.
NBA Standings

THE VICTORY was another personal triumph for Warmath whoj
has been under heavy fire from Minnesota alumni. Both last
season and the year before, there were constant rumors from Min-,
neapolis that Warmath was on the way out.
But somehow Warmath escaped the axe, and there are many
Gopher fans who are thankful of that fact this fall.
Warmath's squad now boasts a 5-0 record, and as of last week
was rated the sixth best team in the nation.
And besides Iowa, they are the only unbeaten team in Big
Ten play. Talk of "going all the way" was common around the
jublilant Gopher dressing room yesterday, and it is a possibility, if
not a probability.
Next week Minnesota can rest in an easy non-Conference tilt
against Kansas State, but the final three weeks look formidable, even
for the Gophers, as they face Iowa, Purdue and Wisconsin.
The Conference's big game now is the November 5 tilt between
the Gophers and the Hawkeyes at Minneapolis.
