Iawkeyes Employ Unique Offense

AAU, NCAA Form Tentative Coalition

When Iowa's starting lineup ap-
pears in the official program each
week, strangers to the Hawkeye
football team are invariably puz-
zled by this entry: "Paul Krause
. . . (168) . ..FL*"
And when their eyes follow the
asterisk down the page to "(* ...
'floater') ," they begin to wonder
if he's a secret contact for a local
crap game.
It's Legitmate
But, as Michigan End Coach
Jocko Nelson explained, it's all a
legitimate part of Hawkeye Coach
Jerry Burns' offensive set-up, the
What Burns does{ is 'to utilize
Krause as a flanker, "floating" to
either sde of the line and usually
split out some seven yds. from' the
The formation is unique, how-
ever, because the floater is not
a back. The Hawkeyes have junk-
ed one of the tackles, so that
when the floater moves to the
side opposite the remaining tackle,
the end just inside the floater
becomes ineligible as a pass- re-
ceiver in what looks just like an
ordinary balanced line.
On the Other Hand...
When the floater splits to the
same side as the tackle, say to
the right, the line goes unbalanc-
ed strong to the right and looks
like this: LE, LG, C, RG, T, RE,

tionary positions on the team are
the center, guards, quarterback
and fullback.
Nelson, who scouted Iowa's 28-
14 upset of Ohio State and 10-0
loss to Minnesota, points out that
this formation helps compensate
for a shortage of tackles, lets the
Hawkeyes "exploit their passing
game" and change formations
quickly for the element of sur-
Looks Heavier
Krause himself is a converted
running back but at his new post


has led Iowa in receiving all year.
Nelson estimates that Krause's
real weight is 175-180 lbs., instead
of the listed 168, but at 6'3" the
junior from Flint is rangy and
"a real good athlete."
Nelson is quick to emphasize
that although "the floater is a
good idea, and it's working okay,
the thing has been their running
Matt Szykowny, Iowa's senior
quarterback, "is always a threat"
to pass, says Nelson, but the
Hawkeyes have a traditionally
strong group of running backs,
headed by Capt. Larry Ferguson.
Out Last Year
An all-America and the Big
Ten's leading rusher in 1960, Fer-
guson missed all but eight minutes
of the first game last year and
is playing this season through
extra eligibility.
And although his rushing aver-
age is only about half of the 7.3
yds. per carry he managed two
years ago, Ferguson is still a "top-
drawer" player in Nelson's book.
Nelson calls him a slashing run-
ner, a fie passreceiver and a
good defensive player.
Burns has been calling his first
team as good as any in the coun-
try and claiming that Iowa's lack
of depth is responsible for its 3-4
record, but Nelson insists, "They
haven't looked shallow in the two
games I've seen them."
Backs Galore
The rest of the Hawkeye backs
certainly don't bespeak any depth
problem. Sophomore fullback Vic
Davis has supplanted last year's
leading rusher, Bill Perkins, who
in turn won the job only when Joe
Williams was declared scholasti-
cally ineligible. Bobby Grier and
Lonny Rogers have been fighting

it out at left half, and highly
touted soph Willie Ray Smith has
had to stay on the bench behind
Nelson calls guard Wally Hil-
genberg the standout on a small
Big Ten line ("about the same as
ours"), but Earl McQuiston is also
well though of.
At tackle, George Latta has just
displaced Gus Kasapis for the
starter's berth, as Lou Williams
has done at end with Cloyd Webb,
second-leading pass-receiver in
the Big Ten last year.

NCAA settled-at least temporarily
-their 21-year war for control
of track and field in the United
States yesterday by forming a coa-
lition group.
The warring groups reached
their agreement after three hours
of negotiating following a mara-
thon 13-hour session Monday at
which they were urged by Attorney
General Robert F. Kennedy to set-
tle their differences for the sake


of the United States Olympic Team
in 1964.
"Preliminary agreement has been
reached by the parties involved to
set up a track and field coalition
embracing all qualified organiza-
tions," said U.S. Olympic Commit-
tee President Tug Wilson in a for-
mal statement following the meet-
"The proposal is subject to rati-
fication by the organizations in-
volved. All these organizations will
proceed with their programs which

Help Wanted: More Women Swimmers

Coach Rose Marie Dawson of the
Michigan Women's Swimming
Team needs help.
With eight national recordhold-
ers on an undefeated team that is
generally considered the best in the
country, Mrs. Dawson would seem
to have no troubles at all. But for
the first time the Michigan team
will have an 6pportunity to prove
its national supremacy and this is
the cause of the difficulty.
17 Events
Mrs. Ann Chadwick, Michigan
State's women's swimming coach,
is sponsoring the first Women's
National Inter-Collegiate Cham-
pionship Swimming Meet on De-
cember 1 at East Lansing. A total
of 17 events are scheduled for the

Oklahoma, Missouri To Vie
For First Place in Big Eight.

Oklahoma, whose head football
coach Bud Wilkinson has stirred
the Bible Belt with his brand of
Sfootball fundamentalism, will have
to face the Tigers of Missouri this
Saturday in the crucial battle for
Big Eight supremacy, national
ranking,;and a possible Bowl bid.
Oklahoma, a young team which
was tabbed for greatness. after
their gridiron baptismal, boast a
5-2 record. Both losses came early
in the season. One was a sloppy
affair with Notre Dame in which
the Irish escaped with a 13-7 tri-
umph, and the other a 9-6 setback
by the Texas Longhorns, present-
ly ranked fifth in the country.
Bounce Back
Since these early setbacks they
have shown great resiliance. In
league competition the Sooners

have notched a 4-0 record scoring
163 points to seven by their out-
classed opponents. In their last two
scrimmages against Big Eight op-
position they have tallied 103
points while blanking Colorado
and Iowa State.
Dan Devine's dandies from Mis-
souri have not succumbed to de-
feat this year in eight games. They
played a scoreless tie with Min-
nesota early in the season which
looks a lot better now than when
it happened. The Tigers have five
league wins without defeat, and
have racked up the formidable to-
tal of 158 points to 19 by the op-
position. Mizzou smashed the tar-
nished Golden Buffaloes of Colo-
rado last week 57-0, so they should
be well rested and confident.
Looney Looms
Both the Tigers and Sooners
have slippery, but rugged half-
backs. "Joe Don Looney of Okla-
homa may be the best halfback
in the country," said Devine. John-
ny Roland, the Missouri missile, is
among the top ten scorers in the
nation. The Sooners may have a
better passing attack than Miz-
zou, but neither squad is noted for
its aerial assault. The opposing
lines are equally strong and mo-
Oklahoma also possesses an ex-
tra ace in Looney. He has the best
punting average in the nation.
Punting could play a vital role in
a close game such as this.
Perilous Territory
Devine isn't worried about tak-
ing his team to Soonerland. "Play-
ers on the road are bound togeth-
er by the stimulating feeling that
they're among the enemy," he ex-
plained. "The hostility of the Ok-
lahoma crowd can be an advan-

lege women's team in the United
States or Canada," said Mrs. Daw-
But she added, "In a meet with
17 events where each swimmer is
limited to entering three events
like the nationals at East Lansing,
we can't win unless we have more
than eight good swimmers."
Swimmer Shortage
Besides the problem of finding
enough swimmers to enter all the
events, Mrs. Dawson will find the
competition at East Lansing the
toughest that her team has ever
faced. Mrs. Chadwick has sent en-
try blanks to over 30 teams around
the country.
A list of the contestants will not
be known until the entry deadline
of November 24. However, most of
the Big Ten teams are almost cer-
tain of coming and this composes
the bulk of national women's col-
lege swimming power.
Mrs. Dawson's strategy for win-
ning the meet. is to enter her na-
tional recordholders in the longer
events and the 200-yd. relays and
then persuade some former swim-
ming greats to come out of retire-
ment for this one meet to swim
the shorter distances and the 100-
Yd. relays.
Impressive List
There are many former swim-
mers on campus who were once
state or national champions.
Among them are Anne Huntzicker,
Fran Petriatis, Sperry Jones, Barb
Estes, Lynda Venema, Eileen Mur-
phy, Sharon Crawford, Carolyn
Coffman, Liz Morrison, Gail
Howes,uConnierMaezes, Chris Ir-
win. Sue Rogers, Carolyn Utter,
and Marie Neff.
Mrs. Dawson would like to have
some of these swimmers contact
her at home or at the women's
pool between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thurs-
day. With some of these swimmers
to make up a full team, Mrs. Daw-
son is confident of victory.
The one diving event should be
well represented by Michigan div-
ers. Micki King, Linda Lyall, June
Mori, and Marjory Bloom provide
enough competence and depth so
that Mrs. Dawson isn't worrying
about that event.

"Details are to be worked out
The meeting was held behind
closed doors and still left unan-
swered the question of dual sanc-
tions, the main point in the feud.
The AAU has maintained that as
the governing body of track and
field in the United States, it alone
had the authority to sanction open
track meets. The International
Amateur Athletic Federation back-
ed the AAU on this.
The NCAA-sponsored U.S. Track
and Field Federation, however,
claimed it too could sanction open
Asked if this meant either group
was giving way, NCAA Executive
Director Walter Byers snapped:
"That's all I can tell you."
Presumably, however, the AAU
will sanction Federation meets,
and the Federation in turn will
withdraw its threat to keep all col-
legians from participating in AAU-
sponsored events.
The AAU would remain the
sanctioning agent.
Wilson Happy
"All this means that I am very
optimistic," said Wilson after the
meeting. "For the first time we
have all the groups interested in
track and field working through
their own organizations but work-
ing toward a common goal, where

there will be harmony, where it
will go through the whole idea of
doing the job and spreading the
competition that needs to be done
for the Olympic effort."
Nothing was said or discussed
concerning basketball, baseball,
and gymnastics, three other sports
involving the AAU-NCAA squabble.
However, one high-ranking off i-
cial said that the track and field
pattern probably would be applied
to the three other sports.
Must Ratify
Both the AAU and the NCAA
still must obtain the ratification
of their member organizations or
institutions. The AAU probably
will decide at its annual meeting
Nov. 29-Dec. 2 at Detroit. The
NCAA is expected to take a mail
vote of its members. However, it
is a foregone conclusion that there
will be no difficulty.
Likewise, the coalition has evap-
orated the threat of any difficul-
ty concerning the 1963 indoor
track season. The Federation had
been threatening to conduct meets
in direct conflict with the estab-
lished AAU - okayed invitation
meets around the country.
"This is my seventh meeting
with these people," said Wilson.
"For the first time, they got down
to thinking how they could work
together. Out of the unity will
come the greatest track and field
development yet."
