Led by sharp quarterbacking on
both teams, Sigma Alpha Epsilon's
"A" and "B" teams swept their
respective ways into the finals of
the first-place playoffs.
Jack Mogk's crisp pasing led the
"A" forces, as he hit, his receivers
for three touchdowns and three
extra points in SAE's 30-8 victory
over Phi Delta Theta. SAE scored
first following Mogk's passing,
when Fred Roser drove one yard
for the score.
CINCINNATI (P) - William 0.
DeWitt yesterday was appointed
General Manager of the Cincin-
nati Reds of the National League.
He succeeded Gabe Paul, who
resigned Oct. 25 to become general
manager of the new Houston club
of the National league.
DeWitt, 58 years old, until re-
cently was President of the Detroit
club of the American League.
NEW YORK (AW-Henry Aaron,
the Milwaukee Braves' $50-000-a-
year star performer, was slapped
with a $1,000 fine by Baseball
Commissioner Ford Frick yester-
day for running out on a contract
to barnstorm with a touring all-
Also fined for the same offense
-to the tune of $500 each-were
Los Angeles infielders Charley
Neal and Maury Wills.
Less than one minute later, SAE
had its second score of the game,
when Mogk hit Joe Jones with a.
30-yard scoring toss, one play
after Jones had intercepted a way-
ward Phi Delt pass.
With time running out in the
first half, Mogk and Jones teamed
up to intercept anotner pass, the
ball bouncing off Mogk and Jones
picking it out of the air for a
clutch interception. On the en-
suing play, Jones gathered in a
20-yard toss from Mogk and car-
ried it in for the TD. Mogk and
Mike Ratterman teamed for the
extra point, and the half ended,
with SAE in command, 22-0.
Early in the second half the Phi
Dels hit pay dirt for a TD and
extra point, bringing the score
to a close 22-8, but then SAE's
offense began to roll once again,
with Mogk hitting John Auld, who
threaded his way 30 yards into
the end zone for the final score
of the game.
Downing last year's first-place
finalist, a team that eventually
lost to SAE in last year's finals,
Sigma Alpha Mu claimed the re-
maining berth in the first-place
playoffs. Zeta Beta Tau was the,
The Sammies scored with 30
seconds to go in the first half,
on a 50 yard pass from Tom Pliner
to Bob Vollen. The extra point
was broken up, and the half ended
with the score 6-0.
With more than 200 persons
looking on, the second half turned
into one of the finest defensive
battles of the year, as both of-
fenses were stymied on many scor-
ZBT threatened early in the
half, but Vollen, who was one of
many defensive standouts for the
Sammies, intercepted a pass on his
own goal line to cut off the drive.
Spurred on by this clutch play,
the Sammies roared back up the
field, reaching the five-yard line
on a pass from Pliner to Jerry
Frankel which covered 50 yards.
Dan Stone, a standout on both
offense and defense for ZBT, kill-
ed this threat by intercepting a
Pliner pass in his own end zone
and carrying it out to the 15.
The outcome of the game re-
mained in doubt through the last
play of the game, when a long
ZBT pass was deflected at the
last minute by an alert Sammie-
defender, leaving the final score
at 6-0, and advancing the Sam-
mies into the finals.
The ZBT's were double losers
yesterday as their "B" team was
downed in the first-place semi-
finals, losing to Phi Delta Theta,
Barry Marshall threw 3 touch-
down passes, two to John Sparks
and one to John Zanglin. Marshall
also ran for one extra point as
well as playing a strong defensive
SAE's strong "B" team edged
into first-place finals, shutting
out Sigma Chi, 8-0, on Stan Pin-
cura's pass to Bill Kihe on the
first play of the game.
In other "B" games yesterday
afternoon, Alpha Epsilon Pi lost
in overtime to Lambda Chi Alpha,
Phi Kappa J'si downed Phi Kappa

Gamma Delta, 6-0, and Delta Tau

FOOTBALL COACHES and sports writers every year get their
chance to play the fun-filled game of "Top Twenty." The coaches
do their bit for United Press International while the scribblers toil
for the Associated Press.
And for people who work closely with the sport through the
autumn months, they sure do come up with some wierd results!
Probably the main problem is that they all have sectional axes
to grind (and maybe this corner does, too), but some of the teams
that sneak into the select group look as if they made it through the
And while many of these deserve to be in the group, their relative
ranking might cause more than one objective observer to question the
This week's surveys provide some good illustrations for those
who would like to register a complaint or two.
One of the best cases in point is Syracuse. The Orangemen,
roared into the season on the crest of last year's national champion-
ship, have done little to justify a high ranking since then.
This week, both polls put Syracuse in the number nine slot,
despite the fact that the Orangemen haven't the toughest schedule
in the world; were forced to come froih behind to edgeunranked
Kansas; were scared by never-ranked Holy Cross before a late-minute'
TD iced the game; and finally last week were soundly beaten by
- It must be frustrating for the Pitt Panthers, after their 10-0 win
over the Orange, to still have to look up at the Syracuse team from
14th in the AP poll and from rock-bottom 20th in the UP.
ANOTHER CASE is Washington. Again the buoying of a one-sided
Rose Bowl win put the Huskies high on the pollsters' lists before
the season began. And like Syracuse, Washington has eked its way
through its schedule, with the toe of Reg Flemming pulling out last
quarter wins over mediocre Coast teams for three weeks in a row
after a loss to Navy. But both polls still have the Huskies in seventh.
Can you figure it out? ,
At least one or two rankers in each poll'have really reached out
in left field to cast a vote. Yale picked up votes on the AP poll, and
despite the Eli's fine 6-0 record, few Ivy League teams have (or
deserved) hit the rankings since the emasculation of the league by
deemphasis in the early 50's.
And UPI gave two-vote mention to Oregon, despite the fact the
Ducks were easily put in their place here in Ann Arbor by the un-
While comparative scores are deceptive, the Michigan team again
gets a chuckle up its collective sleeve at yet another highly-rated
Believe it or not, the Duke Blue Devils are perched in 12th place
in the nation according 'to UPI and 13th by the AP. 'hey are finding
little trouble handling their league foes, but the leaders of the Atlantic
Coast Conference were able to provide little opposition to the Wol-
verines, easy 31-6 victors early in the season.
Making Duke's ranking even less comprehensible is that not only
is Michigan unranked, but that two teams that have beaten the Wol-
verines are lower than the Blue Devils, Michigan State and Wisconsin.
What do you do with rankings like that?

Some football players attribute
their succes to speed, others to
size, and still others to just natural
Bill Kilmer, UCLA's talented
tailback, however, has a different
approach. He claims it's married
life that makes a footballer rise
above the pack.
"Nothing like it to settle a man
down and allow him to concen-
trate on the chores at hand,"
Kilmer is in a position to know.
He lives with his wife, Patsy, and
their year old daughter, Kathy,
in an apartment in Westwood,
near the ULCA campus.
"Marriage, says Kilmer, is an
incentive to work harder." But
he does admit that it poses prob-
lems at times. "I just have to cut
down on social activities during
the football season," he explains.
"Pat is very understanding
about my not being able to go to
movies and parties at this time
of year, but I simply have to allo-
cate my time properly so I can
take care of the most important
At the moment football seems to
be Kilmer's number one obligation,
and he is being boomed by west
coast writers for all-America
The 6'1", 187-pound senior has
been having his greatest season.
He stamped himself as an all-
America candidate in the Bruins'
first game against Purdue, when
he put on the greatest individual
offensive show ever seen in'Lay-
Against the Boilermakers Kil-
mer had a hand in every UCLA
touchdown as the two teams tied
27-27. He threw touchdown passes
of 76, 70, and 17 yards, in addition
to sprinting 11 yards for another
In the game the UCLA tailback
completed 9 of 16 passes for 226
yards, caried the ball 13 times
for 42 yards, and punted four
times for a 42-yard average. Kil-
mer totaled 268 of the Bruins 316
Last week Kilmer added another
chapter to his scrap book when
he came face to face with North
Carolina State's all-America hope,
quarterback Roman Gabriel.
The UCLA defense rose up and
stopped Gabriel, and Kilmer com-
pleted five straight passes during
a second quarter touchdown drive
that gave the Bruins a 7-0 victory.
Until this year Kilmer had never
lived up to the ballyhoo which ac-
companied his entering UCLA
from Citrus Junior College in 1958.
In his sophomore debut he tossed
a 40 yard touchdown pass, but
soon after found himself on the
bench suffering from a broken
His junior year was much the
same story. In his second game
he sprained an ankle, and due
to the inactivity, ballooned to 215
pounds. He got going toward the
end of the season as he directed
UCLA to a 10-0 defeat over pre-
viously undefeated Southern Cali-
fornia, but really didn't hit his
stride until this fall.
Now he has a chance of break-
ing the one season passing records
set by ex-UCLA stars Bob Water-
field and Paul Cameron. Kilmer's
most devastating play is the
famous single wing pass-run
option which he works to perfec-
tion, much to the chagrin of op-
posing players and coaches.
It's too bad Michigan fans won't
get to see Kilmer in action when
the Wolverines open the 1961
season against UCLA, he'll prob-
ably be home passing-the bottle
-to his daughter.
