Problems keep piling
Michigan State Coach

up for

All season long poor Duffy has
been bemoaning the lack of depth
on his team, sobbing to sports-
writers about platooning's being a
luxury the Spartans wouldn't be
able to afford.
Now more troubles for Duffy.
He's just about counted out roly-
poly tackle Jim Bobbitt for Satur-
day's game with Michigan because
of an ankle injury.
"Bobbitt's loss lowers our line
average to 226 lbs. a man,"
Daugherty told a group of writers
"Now you'll only outweigh Mich-
igan by 10 lbs. a man," pointed
out an unsympathetic heckler, ob-
viously planted there to disrupt
the proceedings.
"Well, what's 10 lbs. a man?"

demanded Duffy, not a man to be1
bothered with trifles.
But no matter how convincing
Daugherty is in his sincerity, those
nasty old Michigan coaches just
won't believe him.
"They've got two real fine teams,
and I think it's a fallacy to be-
lieve anything to the contrary,"
insists Michigan Line Coach Jack
Fouts, who scouted the Spartans'
16-13 loss to Stanford and 38-6
rout of North Carolina.
One little fact Daugherty may
have difficulty explaining is that
his second-string backfield has
outstripped the starting unit in
rushing for the first two games.
Here's a list of figures Duffy
might like to wave in the air to

thing about Michigan State this
year, you might be partially suc-
cessful trying to figure out which
of the five are second-stringers.
And then again, you might be all
Rubick, who plays behind Lewis,
and Lopes, who plays behind
Saimes, are the non-starters. No
depth at all.
Off Winging
Daugherty inaugurated the wing-
back-tailback offense this year to
releive some of the beating ab-
sorbed by the two smallest men
on the squad-Lewis (5'8", 155
lbs.) and Rubick (5'7", 175 lbs.).
In the conventional wing-T,
either the left halfback or -right
halfback can move up into the
wingback spot to block or receive
a pass. But with the Spartans,
Lewis or Rubick always plays deep
at tailback and evades some of the
body contact.

Ilerenson Heads List of Rookies in NHL


When the National Hockey
League begins its new season to-
night with Toronto playing at Chi-
cago, there will be many new
faces on the scene.
All Michigan eyes will be turn-
ed toward Boston, however, to-
morrow when the Club de Hockey
Canadien, the Montreal Cana-
diens, tackle the Bruins, last year's
Why the interest in a game
which is being played so far away?
Our Boy Red
Last year, Michigan had a great
player on its hockey team. His
name was Gordon "Red" Beren-
eon. Immediately after the college
hockey season ended, Berenson left
to join the Canadiens in the same
city where he will start this sea-

He saw action during the play-
offs for the Stanley Cup and in
the five games in which he played
(Montreal was downed 4-1 by the
Chicago Black Hawks in the semi-
finals), he netted two goals and
played more like a regular than
the regulars themselves.
Replaces Bonin
In training camp this fall, Ber-
enson again drew the praise of
Habitant Coach Toe Blake, who
said he was the logical- successor
of left-winger Marcel Bonin. Bon-
in was forced to retire from the
game after undergoing a serious
back operation last July.
The only one to challenge Ber-
enson for the spot was Brian Smith
but, because pf Berenson's natural
hockey, style and the fact that
Berenson can also play center if
necessary, Smith was relegated to
stand-by forward for the NHL
* * *
Tonight's game is the only game
scheduled; the other teams see ac-
bion tomorrow night. Beside the
Canadien-Bruin tilt, the Detroit
Red Wings will take on the New
York Rangers at MadisonSquare
How do the teams stack up this
Habs Favored
The Montreal Canadiens are
again expected to take the number
one position at the end of the sea-
on. Blake is only making two ad-
ditions to his squad. Berenson, who
s replacing retired Bonin, and de-
fense-man Jean Gauthier, who
ained the position when Al Mac-
qeil was sold to Chicago.
The weak points of the team are
ound on defense. It is a question
f whether Lou Fontinato can sur-
ive his groin injuries and whether
4-year-old Tom Johnson still has
another NHL season in his legs.
Behind the defense is the key to
he Montreal team - Jacques
?lante, certainly one of the great-
st goalies the NHL has ever seen.
Last year, Plante, the "masked
narvel" of hockey, won the Vezina
Trophy (awarded annually to "the
oalkeeper who has played the
nost games for the team with the
ewest goals scored against it")
or the sixth time in seven years.
Chat ties him with Bill Durnan,
iso of the Canadiens, who is con-
idered the best NHL goalie ever.
Plante also won the Hart Me-
norial Trophy, given to the player
,oted most valuable to his team
hroughout the entire season. He
s the first goalie to win this tro-
The Toronto Maple Leafs, who
inished second, 13 points behind
be Canadiens, and won the Stan-
Cy Cup Championship, are expect-
d to present a real challenge to

their Quebec neighbors this sea-
The Leafs have one serious prob-
lem-Father Time. In key posi-
tions, age will begin to tell. Goalie
Johnnie Bower is 38 (though he
claims that he is only 35-which
age he has been for the past three
years), Defenseman Allan Stan-
ley is 36 and line-mate Tim Hor-
ton is 32. Red Kelly, now a Mem-
ber of Parliament, is 35 and cap-
tain George Armstrong is 32. Both
are first-line forwards.
Two Rookies
Coach Punch Imlach cites the
fact that they are the Cup cham-
pions as the strongest of the strong
points going for the team. He, too,
plans on introducing only two new
players., One is Jean Mikol, a
strapping left-winger brought up
from the Cleveland Barons of the
American Hockey League. He is the
logical successor of Bert Olmstead,
who retired at the age of 36 be-
cause he thought he wouldtnot be
able to produce competently.
The other new player will be
Kent Douglas,nwho was obtained
from the Springfield Indians of
the AHL in return for five players.
Adams Departs
There will be many changes in
the '62-63 version of the Detroit
Red Wings. The greatest loss is
that of General Manager Jack
Adams, who has been with the club
as player, coach, and general man-
ager since 1933, when he was in-
fluential in changing the name of
the team from the Falcons to the
Red Wings. Olympia is rightfully
called the house that Jack built.
Last year's coach, Sid Abel, has
now assumed the managerial post
in addition to his coaching duties.
Record-setter Gordie Howe has re-
linquished his captaincy to become
player-assistant coach. The new
Wing captain is Alex Delvecchio.
Howe is the strong point of the
Wings. The rest of the team con-
sists of weak points. Hank Bassen
has been replaced as Terry Saw-
chuck's alternate. Dennis Riggin
is the new net-minder. Bassen will
play for the Pittsburgh Hornets
of the A2HL.
Young Reforms
Riggin is one of seven new faces
the Wings will display tomorrow.
The return of a favorite heads the
list. Howie Young, bad man who
was deported to Edmonton last
year for his antics on and off the
ice, has turned over a new leaf (he
claims) and is being given another
chance by Abel.
Other players include Larry
Jeffrey, who scored five goals in
18 games after being called up last
season; Floyd Smith, who scored
41 goals with Springfield last year;
Alex Faulkner, another former
AHLer, and ex-NHLer Earl Bal-
four, who retired last year rather
than play for the Bruins of Bos-
ton-all are forwards.
Doug Barkley and John Miszuk
are the defensemen Abel has add-
ed to help Marcel Pronovost, Bill
Gadsb'y, Pete Goegan (re-gained
from New York), and Young.
If early-season slump doesn't

strike the Chicago Black Hawks
again this year, they may give the
Leafs a run for second place (first
place is already conceded to the
Canadiens just as the Yankees are
always conceded first place).
Two Good Lines
The two lines-the Million Dol-
lar Line and the Scooter Line-
will be intact this season. The first
lie will again consist. of Bobby
Hull, who scored 50 goals last sea-
son to tie a record held by Maurice
Richard and Bernie "Boom-Boom"
Geoffrion--both of the Canadiens
-Red Hay, and Murray Balfour.
The "scooters" are Stan Mikita,
Kenny Wharram, and Ab McDon-

to succeed Harvey as coach, de-
cided to retire from hockey. At thej
present, no one has been appoint-
ed to the post but it is expected
that Patrick will assume the duties
for a time.
Old Man's Home
Age is expected to hinder the
Rangers this year. Gump Worsley,
"Little Gumper," is 33 but no one
believes age will hinder his bril-
liant net play. Harvey is 38, Andy
Hebenton is 33 and Bronco Hor-
vath (drafted from Chicago) is 32.
But the Rangers have some es-
tablished stars that aren't too old.
Captain Andy Bathgate (who scor-
ed as many points as Hull last
season, but lost the scoring title
because Hull scored morergoals-
50-28) is 30. Rod Gilbert, who
starred in the semi-finals with
four goals, is expected to be of
great help in spelling Prentice and
Other new faces on the Blues
squad will be Al LeBrun, Jim Neil-
son, and Jean Rattle.
The Boston Bruins finished 60
points off the past last season to
hold down their perennial spot at
the bottom of the list. Improve-
ment is coming, though. Last year's
squad had some eight or nine rook-
ies on it. This year they have the
NHL experience and should be
ready to move up.,
Bruins Bolstered
Their defense should give goalie
Bobby Perreault, stand-out goalie
for the Hershey Bears in the AHL,
more protection than Don Head
and Bruce Gamble got last year.
Warren Godfrey, acquired from
Detroit, will give stability to the
defense and is expected to be the
key of the Bruins' fortunes. His
line-mates will be Doug Mohns,
Leo Boivin, Ted Green and sopho-
more Pat Stapleton, who astound-
ed other NHL players with his
heads-up play in his rookie year.
The Bruins are lacking up front
-both with the scoring punch and
the defensive punch necessary to
give them victories. The Bruins are
ready to give up the cellar-to De-
troit orNew York, whichever one
will take it.

back and moves to which ever
side the play calls for, while the
tailback moves into the deep spot
on the other side.
Speedy Sherm
"Lewis (Big Ten sprint champ)
has tremendous speed. They run
the pitchout to him and Rubick
pretty often," pointed out Fouts.
"Rubick is a little bigger, but
he's pretty swift, too. He's got
great balance. He's a shifty, hard
runner and he can break tackles.
That's what worries me. You've
really got to him him," he added.
At fullback, Saimes is a pre-
season All-America pick, but Fouts
is high on Lopes, too. "He's a real
hard buster," he put in.
Lincoln hasn't had much suc-
cess rushing, but that's because
the counter-play he runs has been
defensed well, according to Fouts.
"There's nothing wrong with the
way he's been running it," added
The Spartans' passing attack
has been ineffectual, but Fouts
thinks it's better than it has
No Use
Spartan quarterbacks have com-
pleted only 10 of 25 in the two
games and have had two inter-
ceptions. "Their passing hurt them
a little against Stanford, but Sa-
turday against North Carolina
they just didn't need it," said
At quarterback, Pete Smith has
been deposed by sophomore Char-
lie Migyanka. "I really wouldn't
know why they put him ahead of
Smith. I did notice that he's a
real good blocker and maybe that's
the edge he had on him," he re-
marked. No depth.
Defensively, the Spartans have
been vulnerable through the air,
but Fouts contends that their pass
defense really is good. "They try
to guard against the long passes
and do what they are coached for
very well. It's going to be hard to
score against them by passing,"
Fouts noted.
"They play a seven-man lie
with three menacovering the deep
pass. Their fullback (usually
SaimesdordLopes) roves and will
either red-dog (rush the passer)
or fall back to cover the pass when
he sees the deep men in trouble.
Herman, Sherman, and Dewey
Lewis covers the left side and
Lincoln the right. Herman John-
son is their deep safety, and he's
a defensive specialist. He's got
real good speed, and she's a tall,
rangy kid who can really stretch
In the line Daugherty has a
better case going for him. Guard
George Azar nas joined Bobbitt on
the injury list. But things are
getting better. Dave Behrman, All-
American center whom Daugherty
demoted along with guard Charlie
Brown to the third string even
though he had no depth in the
lire, is back with the starters as
of yesterday. Duffy says it very
convincingly that he has no depth
at center, guard, end, etc.
No Depth at All
This makes some of his boys
feel hurt, namely Behrman, B b-
ttt. Azar, Brown, Ed Budde, Matt
Snorton, Ernie Clark, Steve Mel-
linger, Jim Kanicki, etc., but
Michigan's coaches have the words
to cheer them up agan:
"Oh, yes you do, Duffy, you old

By now the Big Ten football
elite are beginning to get the mes-
sage: DON'T go West.
Out where the Pacific surf
breaks gently over palm-tree sands
and it never gets cool enough to
play a legitimate game of foot-
ball the Midwestern grid giants
have been getting their beanstalks
trimmed for the past three weeks.
And with the fall of the Big
Ten's greatest has come a like
tumble of that "concrete" monu-
ment that sets the conference as
the perennial power of the powers
that be.

Did last week's grid selections give you fits? Are you discouraged
by consecutive weeks of not winning and picking less than half of the
correct results? Are you worried because you spend so much time
trying to pick the winners that you're ignoring all of your homework?
If so, this won't be your week. The games are getting harder and
harder to pick, and you'll be spending more and more time trying to
figure them out. Why don't you use the method proved successful by
The Daily staff, which doesn't have the time or ability to think:
circle the first of the two teams, and pick the Wolverines to win each
week. You'll never win, but you can return to your homework and at
least stay in school.
Mail or bring your finished entry to The Daily office at 420
Maynard before Friday midnight. And don't worry, you won't win
the two tickets, to the Michigan Theatre and the subscription to Foot-
ball News. (If you spend the time necessary to win trying to pick the
games you won't be able to see "I Like Money" or read your amaga-
zine anyway.)

Rain Stops
Series; Try
Again Today
By The Associated Press
After two hours of fighting the
weather, the fifth game of the
World Series was rescheduled and
will be played in New York today.
The scheduled starting pitchers,
Ralph Terry for New York and
Jack Sanford for the Giants, who
opposed each other in the second
game won by the Giants 2-0, both
expressed disappointment at the
change. Terry is anxious for an-
other chance to win his first World
Series game after four losses,
while Sanford hopes to put his
teammates ahead in the Series,
three games to two.
Manager Ralph Houk of the
Yankees, -while also being disap-
pointed by the delay, admitted
that it will enable him to use ace
Whitey Ford in the sixth game of
the Series if necessary, and thus
