TCU,

82-60

IIZ

By MIKE BLOCK
Michigan's basketball team re-
sumed its winning ways last night
as it rolled past outclassed Texas
Christian, 82-60, at Yost Field
House.
The victory, left the Wolverines'
record at 3-1 on the season. To-
morrow night they play atsEvans-
ville College for their first road
contest of the young campaign.
The Horned Frogs are now win-
less in four starts.
It was a considerably easier win
than the previous two. Instead of
having to come from behind, the
Wolverines went ahead to stay
With just 3:38 gone in the game
when Captain Tom Cole went in
for a layup to make the score 6-4
Michigan. Seconds earlier, they
were behind 4-2, the only time
they were on the short end of the
score during the entire fray.
Lead Mounts
Michigan kept adding to its lead
throughout the game, leaving it at
41-25 at halftime, and increasing
it to as much as 25 points with
4:28 to go. At that point, Coach
Dave Strack put his reserves on
the floor, and the Horned Frogs
finally managed to shave the def-
icit a little.
The leading Michigan scorer for
the third time this season was
sophomore center Bill Buntin. He
came on with a rush in the sec-
ond half with 14 points to give
him 19 for the night, high on
either side. Buntin also led both
teams in rebounds with 19.
Copping second honors in both
these departments was John Har-
ris, with 17 of each. Harris was
especially effective on the boards
in the- first half, grabbing off 12
rebounds.
Cole Gets 13
Cole was Michigan's third man
in double figures, tossing 13 mark-
ers through the net.
TCU likewise shad three players
in double figures, Don Rosick,
Archie . Clayton, and Captain
Johnny Fowler getting 13, 12 and
11, respectively. Michigan had only
a slight edge over the visitors in
shooting percentage, 38.8 to 37.5,
but was able to get more shots off,
largely due to outrebounding the
Frogs, 52-45.
The Wolverines also took ad-
vantage of the 20 personal fouls
committed by TCU to sink 20 of
27 free .throws.
Michigan managed to bottle up

didn't seem to bother the Wolver-
ine center, who outperformed him
in every way.
Use Zone
The Frogs gave the Wolverines
a mild surprise at the game's out-
set, when they set up a 1-3-1
screen zone defense, designed to
collapse around Buntin. The scout-
ing report showed that TCU play-
ed a man-to-man, and while
Michigan began a bit cautiously,
the defense was soon solved, and
the visitors eventually reverted
back to their normal style of play.
The Wolverines provided some
defensive fireworks of their own,
applying a full-court press on oc-
casion during both halves. This
seemed to make the Frogs a bit
uncertain in their ball-handling,
and the Wolverines took advant-
age of this to steal the ball and
garner some baskets they wouldn't
have had otherwise.
Especially adept at this were the
three reliable relief men on
Strack's bench, Larry Tregoning,
John Oosterbaan and George
Pomey. In fact, Brannon after the
game said that the guards coming
in as substitutes wreaked the most
havocon his club's offensive .ef-
forts.
Taylor Named
Player of Year
NEW YORK (A') - Jim Taylor,
Green Bay's crashing fullback who
is noted for his great second ef-
foi't, was voted Player of the Year
in the National Football League
yesterday by an Associated Press
committee of sports writers and
broadcasters from the 14 league
cities.
Taylor, 27-year-old former Loui-
siana State ace in his fifth year
of pro ball, grabbed the award won
last year by Paul Hornung, also of
the Packers.

This was the first game in which
Strack has used Tregoning at
guard, enabling starters Doug
Herner and Bob Cantrell to get
some rest at the same time.
The TCU zone didn't particular-
ly dismay Strack. "We've worked
a little against the zone in prac-
tice," he said, "and we just played
our normal game and got Wised to
it. I was pleased with our play in
general, especially our rebound-
ing."
Brannon called the Wolverines
"a real fine team," and was im-
pressed with their improvement
over recent years.
Before the game, the Michigan
freshman bested the Law Club,
79-76, in an exhibition contest.
ECAC To Act
On NCAA-AAU
Controversy
NEW YORK (R) - The Eastern
College Athletic Conference will
take some action in the AAU-
NCAA squabble Friday when the
133-member group winds up its
26th annual convention.
The bitter battle and President
John F. Kennedy's plea for settle-
ment and peace will be the major
item of business at the final ses-
sion.
This will be the second such
action taken by the ECAC, com-
prising the largest college con-
ference in the nation and the
largest unit of NCAA.
Last April, at a special meet-
ing, it unanimously adopted a res-
olution endorsing and supporting
the work of the NCAA in its or-
ganization of new federaticas in
basketball, track and field and
gymnastics, but suggested a pat-
tern to be applied to the new fed-
erations. This was carried out.

SINKS IT-Wolverine forward John Harris (33) is about to
watch one of his jump shots dent the hoop. Teammates Bill
Buntin (22) and Tom Cole (31) watch in awe, while Johnny
Fowler (35) and an unidentified TCU teammate appear to be
holding hands as they gaze at the ball in flight.

TCU's main scoring threat,. guard
Jerry Wade. After notching 17
points against a good Houston
team, Wade only managed nine
shots from ,the floor, and could
sink only four of these. The Wol-
verines also avoided fouling him in
all but one instance, so that his

total allotment for the evening
was a sparse nine tallies.
Clayton, a 6'10" sophomore,
didn't start but was sent into the
game by TCU Coach Buster Bran-
non with less than five minutes
gone. However, his three-inch

"Looks like you've got something there," the Army Tank
Command said in effect to Ford Motor Company engineers.
"Let's do a feasibility study on tracklaying military vehicles."
The story begins in 1957 when Ford engineers conceived
the idea of a plastic-bonded glass filament torsion bar for
vehicle suspension systems. It was a revolutionary departure
from the use of solid steel. It promised dramatic weight
savings in battle tanks, in personnel carriers and other
military vehicles. For example, as much as 1,000 pounds
in medium tanks.
Compared to steel, the tubular-shaped glass filament com-
position has greater energy storage potential-is stronger
and more flexible under heavy load. It may well prove to be
the .automobile suspension material of tomorrow,... cars
suspended on glass!
Another example of engineering leadership at Ford and
new ideas for the American Road.
