Wolverines Seek To Avenge 50-20 Loss

Cross-Country Meet Postponed
By AAU in Federation Favor

Sports Editor
Bump Elliott is not one to be
known for fiery pep talks, but
this Just might' be one week that
he'll try something along those
The game is Ohio State at Co-
lumbus this Saturday and the rea-
son for the pep talk is spelled
R-E-V-E-N-G-E. Last year, if
you'll recall, the Buckeyes' Woody
Hayes used Michigan in an at-
tempt to climb to number one in
the ratings, pouring on a 50-20
win over the injured Wolverines.
Elliott is also not known for
letting his temper get out of hand,
but the last November's scorn of
the customary post-game hand-
shake indicated he was more than
a little disturbed by Hayes' dis-
The contest figures to be some-
thing more than the last game of
a dismal season for both clubs.
The oddsmakers, however, don't
label it such, establishing the
Buckeyes as a solid 18 point fav-
Michigan is in reasonably good
shape as opposed to last year. End
Bill Laskey will probably miss the
contest, but everyone else is ready
to go.
More To Go
The improving Wolverines have
even more incentive than revenge
for the game. It's a nationally tele-
vised battle and they have been
considerably less than good in
these affairs. Last year they sub-
mitted meekly to Michigan State
28-0 and Ohio State. This year on
a regional hook-up they again lost
to Michigan State 28-0.
Michigan could very much use
this win, if only to assure the na-
tional audience that football here
has not totally degenerated. Need-
less to say another win could also
lift the Wolverines out of the Big
Ten basement.
A lot will depend on the de-
fense. All of the opponents this
year have hammered away at the
Wolverine ends for their running
game. But Ohio State, which
hasn't added anything new to its
offense since the forward pass,
will test the middle of the line-
again, and again, and again.
Michigan's first team has tired

when Elliott tried to use them ex-
tensively so he will work in the
second team as much as possible.
He tried it against Iowa, but the
Hawkeyes had the ball in the
Michigan end for so much of the
second half last week, that the
starters played the entire third
quarter and most of the fourth.
The Iowa game did show vast
improvement on the part of a
number of Wolverines. Wayne
Sparkman gave the most impres-

sive performance of any fullback
this year, and sophomore center
Jim Green showed great promise
as a middle linebacker.
Ohio State has been almost as
much a disappointment as Mich-
igan this year. Hayes' men were
pre-season choices not only for
Big Ten and Rose Bowl honors,
but also the national title. They
have been close to none of them
since the second week of the sea-
son when UCLA upset them 9-7.
Since then they've been dumped

by Northwestern, 18-14, and Iowa,
28-14. The last time Ohio State
had a mediocre team was in 1959
and Michigan won the game. But
then Michigan was a little better
that year than this.
The Buckeyes have everything
needed for a good team except
the fullback so necessary for
Hayes' offense. Their line is one
of the best in the nation and have
three fine quarterbacks in John
Mummey, Bill Mrukowski and Joe
Sparma. Paul Warfield is one of

the better halfbacks in the coun-
try and many feel he should be
used more.
But the three fullbacks em-
ployed by Hayes have failed to live
up to the Buckeye tradition.
A win in this one would keep
Michigan from suffering the third
worst season in its history. And
maybe it would even take a little
of the bitterness out of last year's

BOSTON (p) -- Mickey Mantle,
the Yankees' gimpy-legged slug-
ging master, yesterday was named
the American League's Most Valu-
able Player for the third time in
his career.
The 31-year-old New York cen-
terfielder beat out Bobby Rich-
ardson, 234 votes to 152, in polling
by a committee of the Baseball
Writers Association of America.
Killer Third
Harmon Killebrew of the Min-
nesota Twins placed third with 99
votes. Leon Wagner of Los An-
geles was fourth with 85 votes,
and Cleveland pitcher Dick Dono-
van received 64 votes, for fifth
Mantle, feared at the end of his
playing career last spring when
he injured his left leg and knee,
also won the league's highest hon-
or in 1956 and 1957.
He had been nosed out by Rog-
er Maris of the Yankees in 1960
and 1961 - by a slim four-vote
margin a year ago.
No Votes
Maris, whose performance drop-
ped off last season from his rec-
ord home run year of 1961, though
he still hit 33 homers and com-
piled 100 runs batted in, did not
poll a single vote this year.
Mantle belted 30 home runs, had
98 RBI and, with a .321 average,
was runnerup in the American
League batting race to Boston's
champion, Pete Runnels.
Hobbled much of the time from
his legs and then by a rib in-
jury, Mickey missed 39 games but
was still in action enough, official-
ly and defensively, to pace the
Yankees to their 13th pennant in
the last 16 years.
New York has won the flag 10
times during Mantle's 12 years.
with the world champions.
Mantle, joining a select group
of previous three-time MVP win-
ners in the league, received 13 of
the first place votes cast.

If the Amateur Athletic UnionI
and U. S. Track and Field Federa-
tion have really settled their feud
over control of amateur competi-
tion here, somebody's slip is show-:
From Chicago comes word that
the AAU has just postponed its
cross-country meet, originally
scheduled for tomorrow in direct
competition with the Federation
meet in Columbus.
Before the AAU and NCAA
reached what is publicized as a
temporary peace in track and field
last week, the conflicting cross-
country meets were to have staged
a showdown between the two
groups, and according to the Fed-
eration's plans were to have shown
that it and not the long-establish-
ed AAU really had the backing of
the athletes.
Agree to Coalition
Under Atty. Gen. Robert Ken-
nedy's supervision, however, the
two organizations agreed ostensib-
ly to form a coalition to adminis-
trate track and field until com-
pletion of the Pan American
Games and 1964 Olympics.
Reports were that the agree-
ment, if the memberships of both
organizations ratified it, would
yield exclusive sanctioning power
to the AAU, just as it has always
had, and would also permit the
Federation "equal" representation
on the AAU's Foreign Affairs
Committee and a seat on the Ex-
ecutive Committee. The Federa-
tion's power, in turn would be
limited to only college competi-
If this is really the state of af-
fairs now - and nobody really
seems to know-the AAU's post-
ponement of its meet looks like
a gigantic vote of no confidence
in itself.
Not Dawn Yet?
Don Canham, Michigan track
coach, has indicated that the mat-
ter has not been settled, but he
has not enlarged on the situation
At any rate, Michigan had al-
ready planned to enter the
USTFF meet tomorrow, so the
AAU's postponement does not
directly affect the team.
Although Michigan sometimes
enters individuals in cross-coun-
try meets, the school does not gen-
erally field a team as such because
Canham and Assistant Coach El-
mer Swanson like to use the sea-
son more as a training period for
tra 2.
No Big Ten Meet
This year, for instance, Canham
has had his team running over
'the Michigan Golf Course for
weeks but did not enter the Big
Ten meet in Iowa City because
of class conflicts here.
But he has lined up six and
possibly seven men to run 10,000

meters in the Thanksgiving Day
meet: juniors Chris Murray, Dave
Hayes and Jim Austin; freshmen
Des Ryan and Joel Lewitz; and
unattached entries Angus Mac-
Dougald and Jim Neahusan.
Murray, Hayes and Austin are
also planning to run in the four-
mile NCAA meet in East Lansing
Ninth Last Year
Murray, a slender Toronto pro-
duct who placed ninth in last
year's Big Ten meet, likes to run
in races longer than six miles, so
the 6%-mile run over Akers Golf
Course in East Lansing should be
to his liking.
Hayes, from Old Greenwich,'
Conn., placed in the indoor mile
and outdoor half-mile in the con-
ference meets last year.
Austin, a junior transfer from
Flint Junior College, and Lewitz,
are newcomers. Ryan is a second-
semester freshman from Ireland

who will be eligible to run track
in the winter.
Back in School
Neither MacDougald nor Nea-
husan is enrolled in school now,
but both are expected to run for
Michigan next semester. Neahus-
an was a point-getter indoors last
The Federation's complete entry
list has not been made public yet,
but the NCAA meet has enough
competition to make it an out-
standing one.
Among the entrants are Dale
Story, defending champion from
Oregon State; Vic Zwolak and
Pat Traynor, one-two in this
week's IC4A meet; Tom O'Hara,
Loyola (Chicago); Jeff Fishback,
San Jose State; Jim Dupree, Bill
Cornell and Brian Turner, South-
ern Illinois; Barry Almond, Hous-
ton; and Les Hegedus, Central

The squad was told Purdue's pass
rushing is the best the Hoosiers
have seen this season.
The I.U. squad also worked on
plans to stop Purdue's fullback
