MSU This Afternoon

Mermaids Favored

There isn't a chance in the
world that Michigan State will
be able to defeat Michigan today.
At least in women's swimming;
that is. The afternoon, football
game will be somewhat more of a
contest. But in the morning it's
Michigan all the way.
The University of Michigan
swim club is the uncrowned cham-
pion of women's college swimming
teams. With almost more All-
Americans on the team than can
fit in a pool for a workout at one
time, the Michigan coeds have the
depth and ability to defeat any
women's college, team in the

Annual Intra-State Grid Classic a Sellout;
Three Platoons Scheduled for Heavy Duty


(Continued from Page 1)
Daugherty closed off his Michi-
gan State practice sessions "to
get complete concentration." El:
liott moved his team into the
farthest corner of Ferry Field.
This afternoon about the only
thing that you can count on is
that neither team will hold any-
thing back-this is the big one.
Don't let anyone tell you different.
Riding on it, besides all sorts
of statewide -and national pres-
tige is Paul Bunyan-an invention
of former Gov. G. Mennen Wil-
liams back in 1953.
Since then, Michigan hs held
the trophy only twice. The Wol-
verines won 33-7 in 1954 and 14-7
in 1955. The Spartans have dom-
inated the rest with only 1958's
12-12 tie at East Lansing marring
an otherwise perfect record.
That makes Elliott winless in
three tries against the Spartans.
Only Missouri and Nebraska,
which have won their only starts
against Elliott coached teams, and

Wisconsin, which has won twice
have escaped losses to Elliott. Even
Ohio State and Minnesota have
On paper, the Spartans appear
to have the best of it again this
year. Up front All-America center
Dave Behrman, who weighs in at
283 lbs. in full football gear, an-
chors a huge, pro-type line. De-
spite injuries, the Spartans should
still average 230 lbs. end to end.
Small Backfield
Operating behind the beef trust
is Michigan State's smallest back-
field since the days of Biggie
Munn's famous "Pony Backfield."
The biggest of the bunch is
Captain George Saimes, last year's
All-Big Ten fullback choice. He
tips the scales at 187. Next in line
is Dewey Lincoln at 185, followed
by quarterback Charles Migyanka

ing job. Rubick, who leads the
Spartans in just about every of-
fensive department, set a Michigan
State single game rushing record
last week of 207 yds. Three of his
14 carries went for touchdowns of
11, 15 and 67 yds.
Three Platoons
Unable to match Michigan
State's size in the line, Michigan
will counter with three platoons.
Against Army, Elliott's system was

Is the best offense a strong
That's what Minnesota football
Coach Murray Warmath must be-
lieve. And that's the way it's been
for the last two seasons for the
Golden Gophers.
After a dismal 2-7-0 '59 season,
Minnesota won the National
Championship and a trip to Pasa-
dena. Last year they went to Pasa-
dena again. This year they can't
go to the Rose Bowl, but, to the
dismay of the Big Ten, it looks like
Minnesota is loaded again.
The Gophers haven't been scored
on yet this season.
It's not offensive talent that
Warmath has got,he hasn't had
that (with the exception of Sandy
Stephens) in the last three years,
it's defense.
Minnesota's graduation losses
were as bad as any team in the
conference. Gone were 16 letter-

American quarterback and Minne-
sota's offense for the past two

regularly and get in shape. Coach
Rose J.Mary Dawson just returned
to Ann Arbor Thursday night from
a vacation and the team has been
practicing under the direction of
her husband, Buck Dawson, and
the team's undergraduate man-
ager, Nancy Wager.
Despite this lack of practice,
the U-M swimmers shouldn't be
much off form since most of the
events are 50 yards and these girls
are used to swimming 100-yd.,
200-yd., and longer distances.
Records Set
In the all-campus swim meet
last Saturday, four inter-collegiate
records were set by swim club
members. Freshman Peggi Wirth,
Pam Swart, and Donna Conklin
and sophomore Suzy Thrasher
were the record setters.
Michigan coeds now hold eight
of eleven national collegiate rec-
ords. Miss Wirth's time was 27.2
in winning the 50-yd. freestyle as
Pam Swart and Cynthia Osgood
also went under the old record of
27.9. Miss Conklin broke the 100-
yd. backstroke mark of senior
Eileen Murphy
.9 Faster
Miss Swart broke the record of
Suzy Thrasher of 59.9 in the 100-
yd. freestyle with a clocking of
59.0 while Miss Thrasher was set-
ting a new record of 1:04.9 in the
100-yd. butterfly.
Also making the trip to East
Lansing for the meet at 10:00
Saturday morning are freestyler
Janice Snavely, breaststrokers
Susan Rogers, Sharon Bedford,
and Mona DeFillipo, and divers
Micki King and June Mori.
Michigan State has two All-
Americans in Cris Kruter and
Marcia Jones. Miss Kruter is a
backstroker and Miss Jones is a
former U-M swimmer.
This is the first meeting be-
tween these two teams in a dual
meet. Later in the season, the
U-M swimmers will face the Uni-
versity of Toronto.

Spartans Dominate in Rushing;
Minnesota Leads All Defenses

Seems someone once said you
can lie with statistics.
Well, let's see.
Official Big Ten statistics for
the season have been released. Al-
though they are compiled for only
two games for every team but In-
diana (who has played three times)
and the caliber of the. opponents
have varied from New Mexico
State to UCLA, these statistics of-

parison to the Big Ten gridiron

second with a 294-yd. average, and
Ohio State is third with 272 yds.
Passing Wild (cats)
Northwestern has outgained the
rest of the conference by almost
the length of a football field in
passing offense. The Wildcats have
averaged 247 yds. per game while
Wisconsin is second at 148 yards.
Iowa and Minnesota are well back
in a tie for third with 108 aver-
The total offense leader is
Northwestern, which has rolled up
497 yards per game. Wisconsin has
rambled for a 442 yd. mark, second
best in the Big Ten, and MSU
shows an average of 399 yds. Mich-

rushing defense has also been mag-

171 yds. Michigan's defense has
given up 235 yds. a game for a
sixth-place ranking. MSU has
yielded an average of 277 yds. and
is ranked ninth. (Don't cheer too
loudly-Illinois is locked in the
cellar with 386 yds. racked up
against them each week.)
A comparison of vital statistics
is in order. MSU has gained 107
more yds. per game than Michi-
gan. The Wolverines have held
opponents to 38 fewer yds. a game.
That leaves Michigan with a 69
yd. deficit. So therefore it's the

The All Stars, a group of NBA
rookies this season, cut a New
York 20-point lead 87-67 to a
five-point margin, 103-98, with
seven minutes remaining, but the

it open again down the stretch.

The All Stars were led,'in early
stages by Leroy Ellis, former St.

Los Angeles Lakers, and in the

Ellis scored 25 points and De-
busschere had 21.

The Big Ten, with four of its
top teams already defeated by in-
tersectional rivals, gets down to,
the business of separating the
Midwest powers from the push-
overs today. It's the first big week-
end of intra-conference tilts with
eight teams in Big Ten action;

OSU's hosts, are drying up in the
middle of a long win draught.
After losingdall nine a year ago,
the Blue and Orange have stum-
bled this fall 28-7 and 45-0 to
Washington and Northwestern.
Power wins over South Carolina
and the Illini have focused atten-
tion to Northwestern's power of-
fense this fall. Pegged as a sdark-
horse question mark in pre-season
picks, the Wildcats have found
their salvation in soph quarter-
back Tom Myers coupled with the
power running of fullback Bill
Swingle. Myers completed 20 of 24
aerials against South Carolina, set-
ting two NCAA passing records in
his collegiate debut.
