Western teams have won the

previously, in 1949, did an east-
ern team take the championship.
That winner was Boston College.
Michigan's 22-4-1 over-all re6-
ord for the season is the best of
any of the NCAA tournament
teams. Michigan has won six na-
tional titles, and Denver was
champion in 1958, 1960 and 1961.

TWO HALFBACKS INJURED:
Sygar Re-Breaks Leg;
Rind fuss Hurts Ankle
By MICHAEL RUTKOWSKI
Spring football practice hasn't
even started yet, but already two
of Michigan's top halfbacks, Rick
Sygar and Dick Rindfuss, have
been sidelined due to leg injuries.
As a highly regarded sophomore
Sygar was to have started at the
right halfback spot, but he never
did because of a broken leg. Last
Tuesday he broke the same leg
The original break to Sygar's
leg (his right) occurred on the
first day of classes last Septem-
ber during a preseason practice
session. After spending over four-
and-a-half months with his leg in
a cast, Sygar was just beginning
to get back into shape when he
slipped on a patch of ice and suf-
fered a new break just below
where the first one had been.
It is expected that it will take
several months for Sygar's leg to
mend' this time even though this
break is a clean one unlike the
compound fracture of last year.
Rindfuss pulled the colateral
ligaments in his left leg during an
I-M basketball game in which he
was representing Sigma Chi as
they won the social fraternity "A"
basketball title last Wednesday
night. As Rindfuss went up for a
shot someone grabbed him and he
came down on the side of his
Rindfuss presently has his leg
in a cast and is expected to be on
crutches for at least four weeks.

NEW YORK (M-)-Paul Hornung,
star Green Bay Packers halfback,
and Alex Karras, bruising defen-
sive tackle of the Detroit Lions,
were restored to good standing
by the National Football League
yesterday, after having been sus-
pended nearly a year ago for bet-
ting on football games.
NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle
announced they had been rein-
stated after separate reviews of
their suspensions and personal
discussions with the two players.
They were suspended April 17,
1963, after both had admitted bet-
ting on their teams to win cer-
tain games and on some games in
which they were not involved.
In announcing the end of the
indefinite suspensions, Rozelle said
there was no evidence that either
player ever bet against his own
team or failed to do his best in
any football game.
Rozelle said he had established
to his own satisfaction that each
player now has a clear under-
standing of the seriousness of the
offenses and of the circumstances
