IN BIG TEN ACTION:
Purdue Fights for Title Shot
By DAVE ANDREWS
Associate Sports Editor
Watch out for the first quarter!
That's what Michigan Coach
Bump Elliott has been telling his
team all week in preparation for
this afternoon's clash with Iowa
at Iowa City.
Game time is 2:30 (EST).
What Elliott means is that Iowa
has been a dangerous first quarter
team all season. The Hawkeyes
haves rolled up 44 points in seven
games, while allowing only 14 in
Michigan, on the other hand,

City jinx. Not once has Iowa won
in their home ball park over Mich-
igan, though they do play stronger
at home against everyone else.
Ohio State, which has lost four of
the last five in Iowa Stadium, will
attest to that.
Outside of this, and the home-
coming for Frosty Evashevski and
Elliott, this afternoon's game
dosen't offer much to the Big
Ter race. Both teams have long
been out of it.
In the Conference, the Hawk-
eyes are 2-3, losing to Wisconsin,
Purdue and Minnesota, while
beating Indiana and - Ohio State.
A victory over Oregon State and
a close 7-0 loss to Southern Cali-
fornia marks them at 3-4 for the
year. Michigan's record is 2-5
overall and 1-4 in the Big Ten.

Virtual elimination from the Big
Ten title race is the fate await-
ing the loser of the Purdue versus
Both teams enter the contest
with a great deal to lose and only
the right to keep hoping if they
win. Purdue squeaked past MSU
last week as they capitalized on
Spartan miscues to record a 17-9
victory. Minnesota, meanwhile,
had an equally hard time at Iowa
City but got moving enough in
the second half to post a 10-0 win.
Field Goals Important
It is curious to note, and per-
haps indicative of things to come,
that an insurance margin for both
teams came on field goals. Omer
(Skip) Ohl placed one from 27
yards out to break the backs and
the wills of the MSU players. Col-
lin Versich split the uprights from
the same distance for Minnesota,
to give the defense-minded Goph-
ers all the points they needed.
Purdue enters the game in
fourth place with a 3-1 record and
requires a win over Minnesota and
a MSU win over Northwestern to-
day, and a Minnesota win over
SWisconsin next week to capture
Big Ten Conference honors. For
Minnesota, which is tied for first
place with a 4-1 conference record,
the route to the top is similar ex-
cept it starts with a Minnesota
defeat of Purdue.
MSU will be trying to regain
some of its lost luster today by
bumping off the ex-number-one
team in the nation, the North-
westernmWildcats. The Wildcats

Michigan has been better,
though not by much. Last week,
against Illinois, however, the Wol-

unstopable trend from the first
In addition, if you will remem-
ber, Michigan turned a 14-3 half-
time deficit into a 23-14 victory
over Iowa last year-and that
wasn't the first time the Wolver-
ines have done that to Iowa.
In 1953 and 1954, the Wolver-
ines pulled out 14-13 victories. In
1955, a 20 point fourth quarter
splurge won, 33-21. In 1956 an
80 yd. touchdown drive gave the
Wolverines a 17-14 fourth quarter
win. And then there was last year.
Even in Iowa's only victory over
Michigan since 1924, a 37-14 whip-
ping in 1958, the Hawkeyes had to
scramble after the Wolverines had
wiped out a 14-0 Iowa halftime
lead and threatened to go ahead.
Overall, Michigan holds a 16-3-2
advantage over Iowa, but then

to hand the ball to halfback Jack Strobel (12). The guards, John Minko (62) and Dave Kurtz (mostly
hidden), have pulled to lead the blocking. Fullback Wayne Sparkman (33) is also ready to clear
the path. This afternoon the Wolverines, who meet Iowa at Iowa City, will try to work all their
plays as well as this one, since there is not a single opponent in the backfield.

Georgia Tech, with a record of
5-2-1, has faced a rugged set of
opponents this year. Last week
they tumbled from the top ten
when they were beaten 17-14 at
the hands of Auburn. Their only
other defeat was in a close 10-7
battle with LSU. The Yellow Jack-
ets are looking for a bowl invi-
tation with a major upset.
Hope for Bowl Bid
A post-season excursion for Tech
would be virtually assured with a
victory over Alabama. Coach Bob-

problem for his team will be crack-
ing through the tremendous Ala-
bama defense. He is counting on
his fine quarterback Billy Loth-
ridge, who is leading the South-
eastern Conference in total of-
fense with 1,236 yards.
There will be a personal contest
between Lothridge and Joe Na-
math, Alabama's star sophomore
quarterback, who has 1,210 yards,

ready tossed 11 touchdown passes.

Another big game on the coast
will pit Washington against UCLA.
Washington, with a 5-1-2 record,
needs a win to stay within striking
distance of Southern Cal, who is
responsible for their only defeat,
a 14-0 win.
An impressive win could boost
the Huskies into the top ten rank-
ings. UCLA ,with a 3-3 record in-
cluding a 9-7 opening triumph over
Ohio State, will be hoping to get
back on the winning trail. They
have lost three of their last four,
but in these three defeats were
beaten by a total of just 16 points.
This game could spell the differ-
ence between a successful and un-
successful year for the Bruins.
Season tickets for both Univer-
sity home basketball and hockey
games are now on sale at the Ath-

announcement was made by Don

tickets cost $26 for the 13 home
contests. Hockey tickets are $20

GLOOM AT THE TOP
Oh, sure, you've been busy, what with going to classes, doing
your homework, catching night crawlers, getting married-
but can't you pause for just a moment and give thought to that
dear, dedicated, lonely man in the big white house on the hill?
I refer, of course, to the Prexy.
(It is interesting to note here that college presidents are al-
ways called "Prexy." Similarly, trustees are called "Trixie."
Associate professors are called "Axy-Pixy." Bursars are called
"Foxy-Woxy." Students are called "Algae.")
But I digress. We were speaking of the Prexy, a personage at
once august and pathetic. Why pathetic? Well sir, consider how
Prexy spends his days. He is busy, busy, busy. He talks to
deans, he talks to professors, he talks to trusteees, he talks to
alumni. In fact, he talks to everybody except the one group
who could lift his heart and rally his spirits. I mean, of course,
the appealingest, endearingest, winsomest group in the entire
college-you, the students.
It is the Prexy's sad fate to be forever a stranger to your
laughing, golden selves. He can only gaze wistfully out the
window of his big white house on the hill and watch you at your
games and sports and yearn with 0l his tormented heart to bask
in your warmth. But how? It would hardly be fitting for Prexy
to appear one day at the Union, clad in an old rowing blazer,
and cry gaily, "Heigh-ho, chaps! Who's for sculling?"
No, friends, Prexy can't get to you. It is up to you to get to
him. Call on him at home. Just drop in unannounced. He will
naturally be a little shy at first, so you must put him at his
ease. Shout, "Howdy-doody, sir! I have come to bring a little
sunshine into your drear and blighted life!" Then yank his
necktie out of his vest and scamper goatlike around him until
he is laughing merrily along with you.
Then hand him a package and say, "A little gift for you, sir."
"For me?" he will say, lowering his lids. "You shouldn't
"Yes, I should," you will say, "because this package is
a carton of Marlboro Cigarettes, and whenever I think of
Marlboro, I think of you."
"Why, hey?" he will say curiously.
"Because Marlboros have taste, and so do you," you will
"Aw, go on," he will say, blushing furiously.
"It's true," you will say. "Moreover, Marlboro has a filter,
and so do you."
"In my swimming pool, you mean," he will say.
"Yes," you will say. "Moreover; Marlboro has, a soft pack,
and so do you."
"My limp leather brief case, you mean," he will say.
"Yes," you will say. "Moreover, the Marlboro box has a
lip-top, and so do you."
"But I don't have a flip-top," he will say.
"But you will," you will say. "Just light a Marlboro, and
tate that' tastv taste, and you will surely flin your ton."
