Junior Dave Raimey and soph-
omore Don Kornowa led the win-
ning Blue team in scoring with
two touchdowns apiece. "Bennie
McRae, Scott Maentz and Jim
Zubkus were the other Blue scor-
ers.
Touchdown Passes
Ends Bob Brown and Doug
Bickle scored the two ,White tal-
lies. Brown made a sensational
catch of a nine yard pass from
Frosty Evashevski, and spun into

course," he went on,

when he and quarterback Bob4
Chandler combined for a 77-yard
pass and run play.
Raimey scored the first touch-
down of the afternoon on an eight
yard run off left guard. The play
had been set up by a 34-yard roll
out pass from Dave Glinka to
fullback'Bill Tunnicliff.
Raimey's second tally came on
a 13-yard burst off left tackle.
Koronowa Rambles
Kornowa, a six foot, 195-pound,
halfback from Toledo, got near
perfect blocking on a White punt
and raced 66 yards up the left
sideline for his first touchdowh.
Minutes later he scampered 45
yards through left tackle for his
second trip to paydirt.
In probably the most spectacu-
lar play of the game, Raimey start-
ed off on a play through left
tackle;, he got 14 yards and was
hit by three White defensive
backs, but just as he was going
down, he managed to get .the
ball offi to his running mate,
speedster Bennie McRae. The tal-
ented back breezed the remaining
23 yards into the White ehd zone
almost before Raimey had hit the
ground.
The two remaining Blue touch-
downs were scored on pass plays.
Glinka tossed to Maentz for one,
and sophomore Dave Alix┬░ of

kus for the other.

UP AND OVER--Bennie McRae hurtles over the line in typiel
fashion against a Big Ten foe as he did in Saturday's game-
type scrimmage in the Stadium, won by the regulars. McRae is
one of four veteran starters back in the Michigan backfield this
year.

show what he can do, and of
course there are still Glinka
Stamos, Chandler and Evashevski.
Elliott was also impressed by
four other members of the squad
who, according to the Michigan
mentor,had shown more on Sat-
urday than they had ever shown
before. "We were particularly
pleased with the play of Bob Lov-
ell, Tom Keating, Lou Pavloff, and
Harvey Chapman."
Punter Undecided
Senior end Scott Maentz han-
dled all the punting for the Blue
team, but Elliott has not conced-
ed that Maentz will be the Wol-
verine's regular punter when the
the season begins. Maentz was
punting for good distance Satur-
day.
"Maentz punted Saturday, and
did well, but Joe O'Donnell, who
had been out with a pulled leg
muscle, and -Prichard are also
contending for the job."
Bickle Place Kicks
Sophomore end Doug Bickle, a
6'3'" 210-pound end from Traverse
City, handled all the place kick-
ing in the first half for both the
Whites and the Blues.
"Bickle is a very good kicker,
and I Imagine he'll get first call
in all kicking situations."
Marcum (,ut
john Marcum, a sophomore
guard from Monroe, was forced to
leave the game in the first half
with a knee injury. Marcum, who
is now in the University Medical
Center, will probably be out for
the duration of the' season. Other
casualties in the scrimmage were
center Todd Grant and end Bob
Brown. Grant banged up his knee,
'but is not expected to miss any
action. Brown was shaken up and
was forced to sit on the bench in
the second half. ,
Drills were called yesterday,
but will resume this afternoon.
The squad will prepare for a sim-
ilar scrimmage to be held this
coming Saturday.
House OK's
NFL's New
TV Polic
WASHINGTON (P)-The House
passed and sent to the Senate to-
day a bill making it possible for
the National F ootball League to
make a league-wide contract for
television coverage, in spite of a
court antitrust decision against it.
The bill, approved by voice vote,
applies to all professional sports
leagues-baseball, hockey, basket-
ball as well as football-but was
designed specifically to give relief
to the NFL.
A federal court in Philadelphia
ruled earlier this year that a
league-wide TV .contract with the
CBS network, with the proceeds
to be split among all teams of
the league, violated the antitrust
laws.
Even if the Senate acts on the
bill before adjournment: its effect
would not be felt until the 1962
football season.

Woody Rides High
pREDICTING the outcome of the Big Ten title race has become a
risky occupation. In the last two years, first Wisconsin, and then
Minnesota have embarrassed the forecasters by winning Rose Bowl
invitations. It seems that the safest course is to put your money on
a dark horse. If they win, you look good. If they lose, people forget
your stupidity in all the excitement.
Contrary to this recent trend, we think that four traditional
powers-Iowa, Ohio State, Michigan State, and for a change, Michi-
gan-are the class of the Big Ten. Although Iowa seems to be the
popular choice to win it all, we are picking Ohio State to win the
title. Along with the remaining teams in the order of probable finish,
here's why:
OHIO STATE . . . should capitalize on a favorable schedue to
prevail over pre-season favorite Iowa. The only real shortcoming is
lack of a tested quarterback. But Woody Hayes has ample time to
season a signal caller since he doesn't meet a really dangerous oppo-
nent until mid-season. Ohio State plays the three weakest Big Ten
teams-Indiana, Northwestern, and Illinois, while Iowa' plays only
Indiana. Besides, the quarterback position in Ohio State's "four
yards and a cloud of dust" attack isn't nearly as important as it is in
a more free-wheeling attack such as Iowa's.
Finally, two swift and powerful sophomore halfbacks,
Paul Warfield and Matt Snell, should take some of the
rushing load from all-American .fullback Bob .Ferguson.
IOWA ... may have a few overlooked weaknesses. With an explo-
sive backfield headed by quarterback Wilburn Hollis, and some tough
linenen, the Hawkeyes are bound to be prime title contenders. But
the backfield lacks that big, pile-driving fullback to pound out the
yards near the goal line, and the defense is mediocre. (Fifth best in
the Big Ten last year.) Two sophomore linemen are being relied upon
to hold down first string berths.
Starting on October 21, Iowa meets five rugged teas-Wiscon-
sin, Purdue, Ohio State,,.Minnesota, and Michigan-in succession.
This is not a particularly big or durable Iowa team and this pace
may wear it down.
Schedule Advantage 000
' MICHIGAN STATE , . . may not be as strong as Michigan but
still could sneak in to grab the conference title with a very favorable
schedule. They do not meet either Ohio State or Iowa and they play
seven conference games whereas Ohio State, Iowa, and Michigan play
six. If all four teams were to lose once, the Spartans would take the
title with a higher won-lost percentage.
Well-stocked everywhere else, Duffy Daugherty is hurting for a
quarterback to man his complicated multiple offense. The backs and
ends are outstanding and the line probably the biggest and deepest in
the Big Ten.
But the uncertain quarterback situation and their nagging habit
of being upset by a decidedlyinferiorteam at least once a year will
probably keep the Spartans from a title.
MICHIGAN ,. . could go all the way if it can come up with ade-
quate line depth. The backfield is the deepest and most versatile in
the Big Ten and the ends and defense take a back seat to none.
From tackle to tackle the number one line is Michigan's biggest in
years. But the Wolverines lost at least two games last year (Michigan
State and Ohio State) when the regular linemen were worn down and
the reserves couldn't hold the fort.
We do not think Michigan's schedule is as tough as it
looks. True, the Wolverines play Iowa and Ohio State in suc-
cession, and it is usually difficult to key up a team to a peak
performance two weeks running. But it is difficult to Imagine
a Michigan team which is not "up" for the traditional finale
against Ohio' State. If Michigan loses the title in the final
two weeks, it will more likely be due to a lack of line depth
than a heavy schedule.
MINNESOTA . . . returns a competent quarterback in Sandy
Stephens but loses much of the bruising line which carried it to an
8-1 record. Theoretically, Minnesota should be rated even with Mich-
igan and Ohio State but the suspicion here is that the Gophers just
weren't that strong last season despite their record and that they
are likely to be weaker this -time around. Still, they play a punishing
brand of football and return a complete, if slow backfield behind the
versatile Stephens.
Watch Wisconsin...
WISCONSIN... must rate as a definite dark horse on the strength
of the best passing attack in the conference. Ron Miller has no
peer as a passer and Pat Richter may turn out to be the best end in
the Big Ten since Michigan's Ron Kramer (1954-6). But the line
lacks size and the ground game and defense need shoring up.
PURDUE .. . can be counted upon to spring its annual upset in
a schedule which includes Michigan, Iowa, and Michigan State. As
Ohio State learned last fall by the score. of 24-21, the Boilermakers
play hard-nosed football. But there is no experienced quarterback
and little breakaway speed.
ILLINOIS .. . will field a sophomore dominated team
which figures to get tougher as the season progresses. All four
backfield spots were left barren by graduation and the line
prospects are little better.
NORTHWESTERN.. . was thrown for a loss when triple threat
tiuarterback Dick Thornton skipped out to Canada. The Wildcats.
have some outstanding individuals like lineman fate Echols, but as
in the past, lack of any kind of depth will be fatal.
INDIANA,... offers a big line andlittle else. Good pickings for
pro scouts and most of the nine opponents.
