Volverine Ends Uphold Tradition

SAE Smashes Fijis in Playof f

". and, as usual, the Wolver-,,
ines will have their traditionally,
strong ends."
That quote might have come
from any of the innumerable pre-
season football magazines which
annually flood the newstands,
drugstores - and bookshelves of
football fans. But are the Michi-
gan ends really that strong, or is
this a non-traditional year?
Eight Completions
An interested observer at Satur-
day's game with Michigan State
will have noted that the Wolver-
ines completed eight passes against
the Spartans-two more than they
completed in their routs of Army
and UCLA combined. The main
reason for this, of course, is that
they had to pass against a team
to which they were losing 14-0
after about five minutes of the
first quarter. '
But the fact that they' com-
pleted eight passes means that the
ends were in the clear' at least
eight times, and more. Also, the
passes which were thrown in-
complete- to the ends were off the
mark-not dropped.
No Long Pass
Conspicuous by its absence in
the State game was the long pass.
With theWolverines behind, 14-0,
early in the game, most onlookers
expected .more than the average
number of long passes but saw
"When you're behind 14-0, 21-0
or 28-0," said Michigan end coach
Jack Nelson, "the defense knows
that you intend to throw the long
ones and they drop their deep de-
fenders way back in anticipation.
It's pretty hard to throw touch-
down passes with four defensive
backs stretched out along the goal
line. In that situation, we thought
that our short passing attack,

with a

greater chance for com-
was a better bet than the

long pass."
One deterrent to the Michigan
long-passing attack is the fact
that none of the ends possesses
any extraordinary speed to out-
run the deep defenders.
When we do utilize a long-
pasing attack, we'll probably use

our halfbacks rather than our
ends," said Nelson.
Michigan's first team ends, cap-
taip George Mans and Scott Maen-
tz, have been as good this year
as they -were last year or better.
"Mans has regained the form he
displayed last year on defense and
in pass catching," Nelson noted.
(Mans was selected UPI lineman

of the week for his playagainst
Oregon in last year's opener.)
Defensively, the Wolverine ends
have been very effective.
"We ruined UCLA, whose main
offensive weapon wa's the end
sweep, and we certainly didn't
give Army any yardage around
end," Nelson said. "Against State,
the ends played about as well as
the rest of the team, and the
whole team had a bad day."
Nelson said that the coaches
were very impressed by the play
of second-team ends Dave Mon-
geau and Jeff Smith on defense.


Ca nadiens
Sweep -Past



NEW YORK (W) - Montreal's
swift .Canadiens used their speed
and good position hockey last
night for . a 5-2 National League
! victory over New York, the Cana-
dien's second decision in as many
games with the Rangers.
The victory vaulted the Cana-
diens past idle Toronto and Chi-
cago into second place, just one
point back of New York.
The Rangers twice came from
behind to tie it, at 1-1 and 2-2,
in the second period, but finally
bowed before Montreal speed and
Notches Winner

MAENTZ LEAPS-Scott Maentz snatches one of Dave Glinka's
passes before being hit by an unidentified Spartan in Saturday's
loss to. MSU. Maentz and Captain George Mans, close at hand,
have been among the most consistent receivers in the Michfgan
aerial attack.

Stars Fight for Recognition

qilles Tremblay got the winner,
breaking a 2-2 tie at 15:11 of the
second period. Phil Goyette stole
the puck on Ranger ice and passed
to Tr.emblay who bore in on New
York goalie Gump Worsley. Trem-
blay flipped in a 15-footer as Wors-
ley charged from the cage.
The Cana, iens were in control
the rest of the way. Bill Hicke
gave them. a 4-2 lead before the
second period was over, and Mar-
cel Bonin added to the margin fol-
lowing some good passing in the
First Period Score
Ralph Backstrom scored for
Montreal in the first period as
busy referee Eddie Powers handed
out 16 minutes in penalties.
A power play goal by Dean Pren-
tice tied it for New York early in
the second .period, but Henri Ri-
chard gave the Canucks the lead
again. That was matched moments
later by Guy Gendron, setting the
stage for Tremblay's winner.

A smooth-running Sigma Alpha f
Epsilon "B" team romped to a 32-8
victory over the Phi Gamma Delta
team in Social Fraternity "B"
touch football playoffs, to high-
light I-M action at Ferry Field
Sigma Alpha Epsilon was seri-
ously threatened only once when
Phi Gamma Delta roared back to
score a touchdown and extra
points to match Sigma Alpha Epsi-
lon's first scoring attack of eight
points. The only score for Phi
Gamma Delta came when Bob
Hiatt connected to Stan Penzotie
on a length-of-the-field pass play.
Hiatt passed to John Deo for the
extra points.
SAE Bounces Back
Forced to score, Sigma Alpha
Epsilon showed their strength as
baseball shortstop Dick Honig
found Doug Glow open' for a
touchdown'pass play. A pass from
Honig to Dave Campbell and then
from Campbell to Glow made the
score 24-8. Both extra point at-
tempts were successful.
U-D Athletes
DETROIT (P) - The University
of Detroit announced yesterday six
athletes - including two injured
varsity football regulars - were I
suspended from school for the re-
mainder of the fall semester.
The first stringers were Joe
Henze, a tackle from Detroit, and
Bob Laporte, a halfback from
Wyandotte, Mich. Both have been
injured since the Titans' opener
and were not expected to play in
Detroit's game tomorrow night
with Navy.
Thomas J. Emmet, Dean of Men,
said the athletes were given an
indefinite suspension for violation
of campus disciplinary rules. He
said they may apply for readmis-
sioni In February.
University officials said the sus-
pensions involved the possession
of alcohol at last week's Home-
coming pep rally.
Also suspended was Ron Bogoye-
vac, a basketball player from Li-
vonia, Mich., and three freshmen
football players. The. freshmen
were John T. Eroschevich of Cteu-
benville, Ohio, Jerry Miller of
Toledo, Ohio, and Daniel Dozlow-
ski of Detroit.
Brown Rejects
Redskin Offer
WASHINGTON "(M~ - President
G~eorge P. Marshall offered yester-
day to make Cleveland hafbak
IBobby Mitchell the first Negro ever
to play for the Washington Red-
Paul Brown, Cleveland coach
and general manager, gruffly ire-
jected Marshall's tongue in cheek
offer f a second draft choice for
the fleet halfback, who will be
called into service Nov. 2.
"I 'have a feeling Mr. Marshall
is trying to project me into his
racial problem," Brown said
through a spokesman. "This is un-
'fair to ,a player who still has some
games to play for us;
The Redskins are the only team
in the National Football League
without Negro players. Marshall
has' been under pressure from Sec-
retary of Interior Stewart ,L
Udall, whose department operates
the, stadium the Redskins play in,
to break the color ban.

Each fall sports enthusiasts in-
dulge in the precarious sport of
trying to pick the season's A11-
America teams from the wealth)
of football talent in the country.
This usually proves a very dif-
ficult task, which is.evidenced by
the fact that so few .men make all
the teams, and that so many are
picked for at least one. This year
is.'no exception. Of the various
picks for the top eleven in .the
country, there are only four who
were practically unanimously,
chosen-Joe : Romig, 'Roman Ga-
briel, Ernie Davis and Larry Fer-
Romig, a 5' 10", 200-lb. senior
guard from Colorado, is on All-
America lists for the .second year.
No Introduction.
Gabriel needs no introduction,
Dwarfing most college quarter-
backs, the North Carolina State
star stands 6' 4" and tips the,
scales at 218-lbs. ',Last year he
accounted for 15 touchdowns and
54 per cent ofall of State's of-
Davis, besides carrying Jimmy
Brown's number, is also carrying
with himt much of the tradition
of the great Syracuse star Qf three
years ago. Also playing for Ben
Schwartzwalder's Orangemen, Da-
vis also weighs over 200 lbs., which
with his speed combines to make
him a sure thing at halfback.
The lone Big Ten representa-
tive in the near unanimous cate-
gory belonged to Iowa's Ferguson.
He may be the only one not to
live up to expectations. Injured
in the Southern California game,
he probably won't see enough ac-
tion this season to merit his con-
Saxton Moves In
His replacement will probably
be Jim Saxton, the Texas speed-
ster, who has led the Longhorns.
to an undefeated season thus far.
Two candidates share considera-
tion for fullback to round out the
country's best backfield. Ohio

State's Bob Ferguson has the most
support. A 6' 0", 21.7-lb. package
of dynamite, Ferguson has spark-,
ed the Buckeyes for two years.
Some predicters have picked
Baylor's Ronnie Bull instead of
Ferguson, however. They reason
that a good All-American should
be able to play both ways. Since
Ferguson plays only offense, they
picked the Baylor. Bull who, be-
sides being one of the top backs
in, the South, also lends himself
handsomely in defensive assign-
Line Picks Tough
In the line, selection is much
more difficult with the' exception
of Romig. Mention ends, and you
will hear of .Kentucky's Tom
Hutchinson, Miami (Fla.) 's Bill
Miller, Gary Collins, the Maryland
great, Michigan's George Mans,
Rice's Johnny Burrell. Consensus
seems to ride with Miller and Col-
lins, both of whom picked up the
confidence of many of the selec-
tors. None of the others are too
far from the honors, though.
The interior lines offer much to
be considered also. Playing op-
posite Romig at guard will prob-
ably be either Nick .Buoniconti of
Notre Dame or Ohio State's Mike
Ingram. bu
Tackles are very plentiful, but
good tackles are envied.
White Has Spot
Oklahoma's Billy White seems
to hav assured himself of one
spot, but the other is' a tossup.
Michigan's Jon Schopf, Billy
Neighbors representing Alabama
and Steve Barnett of Oregon have
excellent chances.
White, one of the smaller tack-
les mentioned weighs only 206-lbs.,
but hits like he carried 250-lbs.
He has great speed and an un-
canny sense for diagnosing plays.
Iowa's Bill Van Buren seems to
hold the decided edge for the
center spot. A sharp offensive
iplayer, Van Buren combines this
with tremendous defensive talent
to give him his bid. The defense
captain and middle guard of the

Hawkeyes, Van Buren plays each
game like a championshiptilt.
These predictions are pre-
season. Some players have merited
consideration ,fron so many selec-
tors that they seem to be sure
things, but the one thing to re-
member about college football is
that a pre-season unknown can
end the season as the most sen-
sational football' player of the

Honesty is the best policy in this week's Grid Picks contest. It
just isn't cricket to send in more than one entry and it serves you
right if itbackfires.
We've, had as many as three entries from one person that we
know about and they didn't do him any good. He got only eight, nine
and ten games right on each of them. Ha!
Remember, to the honest pickers belong the spoils. Everybody
else may be disqualified.
To enter this week's contest for two free tickets to the Michigan
Theatre, send or bring in your entries to Grid Picks, Michigan Daily,
420 Maynard, Ann Arbor, before Friday midnight.

You're needed... just as your father and grandfather
were. It's an obligation that a lot of qualified college
men have to meet. If we don't...
All right. But what can I do for the Air Force?
Future You:
The Air Force needs college trained men and women
as officers. This is caused by the rapidly advancing
technology that goes with hypersonic air and space
flight. Your four years of college have equipped you
to handle complex jobs.
Say I was interested...how can I get to be an officer?
Future You:
You know about Air Force ROTC and the Air Force
Academy. Then there's the navigator training pro-
gram. You've probably heard about Officer Training
School...where! the Air Force takes certain college
graduates, both men and women, and commissions
them after three months of training.
Starting salary is important. What about that?
Future You: .
Add it up. Base pay, tax-free allowances, free medi-
cal and dental care, retirement provision, perhaps
flight pay. You don't have to bean eco major to see
it adds up to an attractive package.
I've been thinking about getting my Master's.
Future You:
As an officer you can apply for the Air Force Institute'
of Technology. At no cost, and while on active duty
some officers may even win their Ph.D. degrees.
