Strack Reviews F1rst Four Games

Rozelle Raps Skorich, Eagles

After splitting even on four
games, two home wins and two
losses on the road, Michigan bas-
ketball coach Dave Strack was
ready to reflect on the perform-
anice "of his squad and what he
expects in the future.
His tean opened the season with
an impressive win over Ball State
and then let a small Pennsylvania
squad outbattle them on the
boards. Against Butler, the second
road game in four days, the team
held its own on the boards, but
finally succumbed to the superior
shooting of the Bulldogs.
Finally last night against Den-
ver they played their worst game
to date but still had enough to
best the Pioneers.
How does your offense shape up?
"John Oosterbaan has been shoot-
ing very well so far and Bob Can-
trell looks like he is coming around.
I feel that Cantrell will shoot bet-
ter than he has. I also don't think
that Tom Cole has played as well
as he can. He was playing better
ball at the end of last year than he
has so far."
Oosterbaan has led the team
scoring in all four games this year.
Is he going to be the' big gun this
year? "I would like to think that
the rest of the guys will be able
to pick up the scoring if they're
needed. I don't think this team can
depend on one man. We will have
to be a balanced scoring club. We
haven't been feeding Oosterbaan
more than the others, it's just that
he's been sinking a greater per-
centage of his shots, a pretty good
percentage in fact (over 50 per
cent). He's actually been taking
fewer shots in some games."
* $*
You were worried about the de-
fense before the season. Has your
early evaluation changed any?
"I've been satisfied with some play
and not so satisfied with others.
Wme're not aggressive enough on
man-to-man defense. We're going
to have to get better individually."
The zone defense was very effec-
tive against Butler. Do you plan to
resort to. more use of it? "It's
possible that we'll use it again.
We'll use it in particular -lases. I
think, however, that you have to
be able to play a good man-to-man
Triandos May
Get Traded
BALTIMORE (P)-If the Balti-
more Orioles grant the wish of
catcher Gus Triandos to be traded,
it's going to be to another Ameri-
can League Baseball club.
Lee Macphail, general manager,
said today he has about given up
trying to make a deal with the
National League

in order to play a good zone. It's
still a matter of how good the
players are defensively."
* * *
Depth was also considered a pre-
season problem. How is this si.tua-
tion after four games? "We're get-
ting hurt more and more. We've
already lost Jim Ludwig and
Hiram Jackson, and now Doug
Herner and Bob Brown are hurt."
What is the extent of their in-
juries? "Ludwig had his knee oper-
ated on last Friday and will prob-
ably not be back any more this
season. Jackson will have the cast
removed from his knee next Wed-
nesday. We'll have to wait and see
how he comes around. Herner has
a hip injury and is playing at
about only 70 per cent efficiency.
Brown had a badly sprained
How does your team stack up in
rebounding? "We're not strong
enough on the boards. We'll have
to work on getting better position
when we play some of those big,
strong teams. Harris has been the
best rebounder for us."
What is the eligibility status of
Harris and Oosterbaan? They have
only two years of eligibility. They
are both transfer students (Ooster-
baan is from Hope College, Michi-
gan and Harris from Alcorn Col-
lege (Mississippi)). The Big Ten
allows only eight semesters of
eligibility, and you have to estab-
lish a year of residency, which
Harris and Oosterbaan did last

elusive sphere. John Oosterbaan (34) and Bob Cantrell (30) give
Cole moral support.,

NEW YORK (P)-Commissioner
Pete Rozelle of the National Foot-
ball League cracked down on
Philadelphia Eagles' officials today
for "statements emanating in Phil-
adelphia in the last two days."
In line with league policy, Ro-
zelle would not say whether he had
fined any Eagle brass. Any an-
nouncement must come from the
club or individuals.
Surprise Action
Rozelle's action came as a sur-
prise.. It was announced by Jim
Kensil, the league's public relations
director, at a weekly luncheon
meeting held by the New York
Giants, who beat the Eagles Sun-
day 28-24 to clinch at least a
conference tie.
However, Eagle Coach Nick Skor-
ich and general manager Vince
McNally had been critical of the
officials' calls in the Giant game,
particularly a 15-yard roughing-
the-kicker penalty against the
Eagles with about 6%/2 minutes to
Illegal Catch
Skorich said in Philadelphia that
his game films showed the final

greatly appreciated. We hope to

should have been ruled incom-
plete because Del Shofner "didn't
come down with both feet in
McNally quoted Mike Wilson,
chief of the league's officials, as
saying referee Ronnie Gibbs made
an incorrect call on the roughing-
the-kicker play.
"It should have been a 5-yard
penalty (for running into the
kicker)," said McNally in Phila-
delphia. "I called up Mike Wilson
to tell him about it and he said: 'I

know it: I already told Gibbs he
blew it."
In New York, Wilson had only
a "no comment" to answer Mc-
At Joliet, Ill., where he spoke at
a luncheon, Gibbs said "the kicker
was knocked down and if I didn't
call the play the way I did, people
would say 'Gibbs, you've lost your
guts' and it would be time for me
to quit."
Gibbs said he doubted that Wil-
son made the comment attributed
to him by McNally.

'M' Squad Track Meet Tonight
To Test Team in Competition

The Wolverine track team
swings into action tonight at 7:30
in the traditional Christmas intra-
squad indoor meet at Yost Field-
Adding color to the meet will
be Tom Robinson, Dick Cephas
and Les Bird.,All three are eligible
only this semester, so none will
see conference action, as the first
conference meet is next semester.
Leps Runs Two
Ergas Leps will anchor the en-
kries in the half mile and thq
three-quarter mile (run tonight'
instead of the full mile), but he
will not be the only one to watch.
From last year's team, Charlie
Aquino will pace him in the half
mile, while in the three-quarter,
Leps' principal opponent will be
sophomore Dave Hayes, the prime
candidate for, Dave Martin's slot
on the mile slate.
The hurdles will be without Ben-

nie McRae tonight, as he is still
ailing with a shoulder injury suf-
fered in football. Dick Thelwell
and Cliff Nuttall will be the prime
choices in the meet tonight, there-
The quarter mile will pit veter-
ans Carter Reese, Len Cercone and
Bill Hornbeck against only the
clock, while the 600 yd. run will
feature Johnny Davis, a sopho-
more, and Sam Dyke, a freshman.
Romping Robbie
The - dashes should be very
colorful also. Robinson should lead
the field, but sophomore Mac
Hunter has broken the tape in 6:3
in the 60 yd. dash, very close to
Robinson's time.
Robinson will be challenged by
newcomer Ken Burnley in the
300 yd. dash.
The pole-vault will show two ex-
tremes: the vets, Steve Overton
and Rod Denhart and the new

blood Ed Hingston and George
Wade, both excellent prospects.
Ray Locke's replacement in the
shot is George Puce who has tosses
better than 50 feet, already.
The high jump will' feature
Sophomore All Ammerman, who
has jumped 6'5" since high school.
Steve Williams who has been in-
eligible since last fall is expected
to be ready next semester, though
he will not jump tonight.
Outdoor Winner
Doug Niles, winner of last
spring's Western Open Meet will
oppose Bird in the broad jump.
Assistant coach Elmer Swanson
sums up this year's squad very
well, "We aren't really re-building
this season despite the number of
new men. There are veterans is
nearly every event, but these men
are no where near the whole team.
These sophomores are good and
will pick up points for us this

Must tomorrow's travelers resort to howdahs and
camel litters in order to get about? Not so, say
our Ford Motor Company scientists.
First-aside from the unlikely depletion of our
natural sources of gasoline-the prospects for
higher-efficiency internal combustion engines
are excellent.
Second, while gasoline still appears the best con-
ceivable automotive fuel, our scientists are study-
ing the outlook for new energy sources for cars.
Among intriguing possibilities: new energy con
version systems using degraded fuels, or fuels
synthesized from low-cost power produced by
nuclear fusion. Magneto-hydrodynamic gener-
ators and solid-state thermoelectric and electro-
chemical converters offer other possibilities.
This is all part of a broad questfor fundamental
knowledge, earning Ford its place of leadership
through scientific research and engineering.
