Kansas on
Probation
By The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO - The NCAA
yesterday slapped a two-year
athletic probation on the Univer-
sity of Kansas, charging that
Boosters bought an automobile
for Wilt (The. Stilt) Chamberlain
and illegally recruited three foot-
ball players.
The NCAA did not specifically
name Chamberlain, an -all-Ameri-
can basketball center, but A.C.
(Dutch) Lonberg, Director of
Athletics at Kansas, confirmed he
'was the player involved.
The K. U. basketball team must
continue on - probation the full
two years, starting immediately.
The football team will be on pro-
bation one year. Only those two
squads are involved.
Today's action came after four
football players who had been
figured on in Soithwest Confer-
ence schools, enrolled instead at
Kansas. ,
Under terms of the Kansas pro-
bation, the basketball team for
two years is not eligible to parti-
cipate in the National Collegiate'
Basketball Championship or any
of the invitational and similar
basketball events which cooperate
with the NCAA.
The Council removed Wyoming,
Mississippi and North Carolina
State from the probation list.

Having had their fill of Min-

the opposing line a little less beefy

less than the Gophers.

By DAVE ANDREWS
In recent years unbeaten Big
Ten teams have been a rarity,
but this fall, Iowa and Minnesota
have been playing as if both would
like to add its name to the list
of 30 other Conference teams that
have gone the route unscarred.
Even going so far as to assume
each is able to win its other games,
one of them won't make it, for
they meet in Minneapolis, Nov. 5,
in what looms as the title show-
down. Just two weeks ago the
Gophers were still considered to
be a darkhorse with Ohio State's
Buckeyes and Iowa holding the
spotlight.
But as has happened to so many
powerful Big Ten teams during
the past few years, the Bucks
were upset by Purdue. Not since
Ohio State's National Champions
of 1954 has a Big Ten team gone
through its entire schedule un-
marked.
The Buckeyes also remained

unbeaten in the conference in both
1955 and 1957, but in those years
they were knocked from the elite
by intersectional foes. Iowa has
come the closest of late, being
beaten by Michigan 17-14 in 1956
for its only loss, and again in 19581
suffered only one loss, this time
to Ohio State, 38-28.
Possibly this accounts for the
fact that nearly all Big Ten teams
that have managed to remain un-
beaten since the Associated Press
started its national poll in 1936,
have been ranked on or near the
top. Seven Big Teri teams have
been considered the best in the
country since '36, five of which
have been unbeaten and untied.
Only Minnesota in 1936 and
Ohio State in 1942 attained the
top position with a loss. Michi-
gan and Indiana, in 1947 and 1945
respectively, managed to stay un-
beaten, but the Wolverines were
ranked second behind Notre Dame,
while the best the Hoosiers could
do was foruth.
49 Unbeatens
However in the 64 years of Big
Ten gridiron history, it has taken
an unbeaten record 49 times to
win the championship. Twenty
other teams finishedconference
play without a loss, but only five
times have two teams finished
with identical unblemished rec-
ords. This is due to the differences
-in the number of games played.
Thirty-three of these unbeaten
slates came in the Big Ten's years,
of infancy before 1919. Since then
the league has evened off and in
the past ten years only Ohio State
went unbeaten with its three per-
fect Conference seasons in 1954-
55-57.
If either the Gohpers or the
Hawkeyes manage to get through
the entire schedule without a loss,
considering the Big Ten's Impos-
ing record against the top inter-
sectional opposition this year, and
past history, few people would bet
against that team being named
National Champions.

Football or Not?
T~UESDAY afternoon a few partisan students showed up at south
Ferry Field to watch Michigan's most noteworthy, non-varsity,
athletic competition: The social fraternity touch football champion.
ships.
I-M championship football is traditionally exciting and this
year the quarter-finalists were as good as any of their predecessors.
Last year's champions, SAE, once again led by baseballer Jack Mogk,
gained the spotlight as they edged the Delts, 26-22, in an offensive
orgy.
ZBT, runnerup to SAE last season, came another step closer to a
,return match as it parlayed a stiff defense, spearheaded by a fast
charging line, and Harley Kripke'sfour interceptions to nip ATO, 2-0,
in the top defensive battle of the day.
The Sammies showed a powerful running attack in topping Psi
Upsilon and the Phi Delts ground out a methodical victory over Phi
Gamma Delta.
Yet, despite the brilliance of play there is one factor which
completely overshadows the grandeur of the spectacle.
And that was the apparent spirit in which parts of these games
were played. No one likes to lose, but the extreme to which winning
was stressed and the means used to gain this end were indeed de-
pressing.
Unsportsmanlike Conduct ,
DESPITE the great total number of points scored by the eight par-
ticipating teams, it is unlikely that this outnumbered the number
of illegal blocks; thrown punches; appropriately misplaced knees;
slap, grab and slug tags; objectionable name calling and other un-
sportsmanlike conduct.
The I-M department has set up rules which should eliminate these
practices; but they apparently have not worked. This year, Health
Service and University Hospital have seen more needlessly wounded
I-M warriors than at any time in the past. Injuries inflicted in the
normal course of action are unavoidable, but few of the cuts and
bruises and the one hospital case of Tuesday occurred under the
rules.
The blame'for these actions rest with players and officials alike.
The rules are widely known, yet 90 per cent of the blocks thrown
Tuesday were contrary to I-M rules. On several occasions rushing
linemen smashed into opposing quarterbacks long after the latter
had released the ball. The rushers had one objective; to get the
man and not the ball.
The I-M department is always on the lookout for additional of-
ficials and it is hard to criticize the few volunteers that do come
forward. However, once they do, it would seem that they are obliged
to call the games by the book. It is a known fact that a referee
who assumes power at the start and calls penalties fairly, when he
sees them, assumes command of the game. If he fails here, general
chaos Is likely to occur, as it did in the one game Tuesday which was
officiated by a lone man.
Refs Have 'Nasty' Job...
()FICIALS are generally castigated by players and fans aike,
making their job even less pleasant. However, this is no excuse not
to call penalties when they occur.
It is certainly gratifying to see so many men with a desire to
represent their housing unit or organization. However, if the means
which have been employed to display the enthusiasm continue, the
games will degenerate into full scale brawls.
Certainly this has not yet happened. Bands of thugs have not
permeated the I-M ranks. Many games are played in a completely
sportsmanlike manner. (Last year's SAE-ZBT championship game,
in which the officials assumed command early and the players con-
centrated on the game, is an example.) However, there are too many
incidents of roughness and occasional wholesale warfare, which the,
I-M system can not and must not support.
Players and officials can halt these incidents and they had
better do so before bruises, cuts and broken limbs become broken
skulls.
