Merely saying that the Fighting
Illini are back is one of the big-
gest understatements of the year.
The Illini have risen with ven-
geance from their previous two
losing seasons, all the way to a
5-0-1 record, :a second national
biggest score in a decade.
Perhaps the biggest key to Il-
linois' success has been "their ag-
gressiveness and high morale," ac-
cording to Michigan freshman
coach Denny Fitzgerald, who
scouted the Illini. "Last year in
spirited but not successful. This
year they still have their spirit,
and they've gained experience and
confidence. They're a great team."
The first big indication of the
Illini's power was in their 10-9
upset victory over highly ranked
Northwestern. "The Illini took the
wind out of Northwestern's sails.
It is a great intrastate rivalry and
they were particularly proud of
All-America center Dick Butkus
leads the parade in Illinois' stout
defense. "Butkus is most impres-
sive as a middle linebacker," said
Fitzgerald. He is also number one
offensive center. Don Hansen, sec-
ond team fullback plays in the
interior linebacker slot along with
The biggest "gun" size-wise on
the Illinois line is Archie Sutton,
aggressive left tackle, weighing in
at a trim 260 pounds. Opposite
Sutton at right tackle is Bill
Minor, who had been out for two
games with a broken foot, but saw
action against Purdue.
At guard the Illini have 215-
pound Ed Washington and Willie
Fox, who beat out co-captain Dick
Deller for that position.
The defensive secondary is com-
posed of Mike Dundy and George
Donnelly who play defense only.
The third man, Jim Warren, is
also first team right halfback on
The strong Illini offense is led
by co-captain and quarterback
Mike Taliaferro. Taliaferro had the
records for the Illini, but
had much chance to pass1
of the Illini's strongz
game," said Fitzgerald.
Jim Grabowski, sophomore start-
ing fullback, "is a good runner
and an especially strong runner."
Against Purdue this past Saturday
Grabowski ran for three touch-
downs in the Illini's 41-21 pasting
Sam Price, also a starting soph-
omore at left halfback, has been
a consistent groundgainer. "Price
is a good runner, fast and decep-
tive. He plays offense strictly."
Price is also a favorite target for
Taliaferro's aerials, although the
Illini throw much less than they
did last year.
Behind Taliaferro are two sopho-
more quarterbacks, Fred Custardo
and Ron Asks, who "have done a
good job while playing," accord-
ing to Fitzgerald.
Good Ground Game
The net result is that Illinois
is "a powerful, rushing team this
year. They are mostly proud of
their aggressive defense. 'Their
pass receivers in the backfield are
more than adequate. They have
the potential to pass, but haven't
much because of their strong, con-
sistent ground game.
"This Saturday we'll have to be
aroused. They always have a gim-
mick to keep their team fired up.
This Saturday it's Dad's Day. The
Illini are great opportunists, so
we'll have to eliminate our errors.
The Illini are just a great team,"
NEW YORK W)-Cosmo Iaca-
vazzi, Princeton's line-busting full-
back, has taken over the undis-
puted individual scoring lead
among major college football
The junior from Scranton, Pa.,
one of the reasons Princeton is
unbeaten and untied, bucked for
three touchdowns against Brown
last Saturday, boosting his point
total to 66. Ten of his 11 touch-
downs have come in Princeton's
last four games.
Billy Lothridge, Georgia Tech
quarterback, moved into second
place with 55 points. He booted
three field goals and three con-
versions against Duke last Satur-
day. The versatile back needs only
12 more points by kicking to equal
the major college record of 55 set
two years ago by Navy's Greg
Lothridge's 10 fields goals also
puts him only three shy of the
single season record of 13 held
by Ed Dyas of Auburn, and he
already holds the career record
for most field goals. 19. His two
touchdowns, added to his 43 points
by kicking, enabled him to beat
Ken Waldrop of Army and Dave
Casinelli of Memphis State by one
point for the runner-up spot in
the scoring list.

Steelers asked waivers yesterday
on a pair of National Football
League veterans, linebacker George
Tarasovic and halfback Tom
Tarasovic was claimed by the
Philadelphia Eagles. The former
Louisiana State lineman had been
with the Steelers since 1952, with
1954-55 out for military service.
Tracy, once a star ball carrier,
has been bothered by injuries the
past two seasons and used spar-
ingly. The ex-Tennessee back had
carried only 10 times this year for'
11 yards. He was traded to the
Steelers in 1958 after two seasons
with the Detroit Lions and one in
the Canadian League.

SAN FRANCISCO-The propos-
ed Cassius Clay-Sonny Liston
heavyweight title fight was called
a dangerous mismatch yesterday
by a California boxing official who
said it could result in grave injury
to the young challenger.
Sol Silverman, chairman of the
California Committee on Safe-
guards for Professional Boxing,
criticized the fight, for which con-
tracts were signed Tuesday.
He said not one former heavy-
weight champion among the 11
now living regarded Clay as being
ready for Liston.

promoter, said yesterday he is
ready to post a $1.2 million guar-

title fight for Denver.
The champion, who lives in
Denver, and Clay signed articles
Tuesday for a 15-round bout prob-
ably some time in February. No
site was named.
Willner said he is willing to
hold the fight elsewhere than Den-
ver if his offer is accepted.
"I have a syndicate with money
and we mean business," he said.

Jack Mogt, balding, seven-year
veteran of I-M football, proved he
is still capable of producing a
championship last night, leading
the Draft Dodgers to a 22-0 touch
football victory over Phi Rho Sig-
ma, on Wines Field.
It was the third professional
fraternity title for the sure-armed
quarterback, with three previous
crowns in the social fraternity di-
Mogt, backed by an outstanding
defensive unit led by Paul Groff-
sky, sparked his squad's offensive
attack, completing 13 of 19 passes.
He tossed for three touchdowns,
ran for one extra pointer and
threw for another.
Rick Wilcox quarterbacked the
Phi Rho's, connecting on 11 of
29 passes. His team picked up six
first downs to the Dodgers' four,
but his pass receivers couldn't
hang onto possible TD passes.
Left end Ron Olson scored the
Dodgers' first six-pointer in the
opening quarter, a 15-yard aerial
from Mogt. Lineman Bill Huth
set the play up, intercepting a Phi
Rho pass and returning it to the
In the third period, Dennis Fox
accounted for the lone Phi Rho
interception on his team's five
yard line. Dick Honig followed
with his second interception of the
night, setting up the next Dodger
Mogt threw to Ed Hood for the
score and made the converstion on
a fake reverse run.
Olson helped the final .TD in
the fourth quarter with a 50-yard
interception return to the Phi

passed to John Tully for the six-
pointer and to Mike Magnotta for
the extra point try.
