Such traditional football rival-
ries as Army-Navy, Oregon-Ore-
gon State, Utah-Utah State and
Oklahoma - Nebraska will have
more at stake than victory, na-
tional attention and area pride in
the next two weeks.
National championships in total
offense, rushing and scoring will
hang in the balance.
Latest NCAA statistics show
Utah State holding a one-point
edge over Navy in scoring, both
with a game remaining. The
Utags have scored 294 points in
nine games to the Middies' 293
in the same number. They are
the only major college teams
which have averaged better than
30 points a game.
Utah State also is the total
offense leader, averaging 402 yards
each game. Utah State takes on
Utah this Saturday, and the
Army-Navy game is Nov. 30.
Oklahoma and Nebraska will be

HIG TEN PRACTICE:
By The Associated Press
Wayne Strauch was the No. 1 tar-
get in yesterday's football practice
sessions as the Illini concentrated
on him in the role of Michigan
State's Sherman Lewis.
Strauch, a sophomore, and his
mates repeatedly ran through
MSU formations from the basic T.
"MSU's Sherm Lewis certainly
has proven to be one of the na-
tion's great backs," Illini Coach
Pete Elliott told Chicago football
writers by phone from Champaign,
"He is the greatest threat to go
all the way that has been in the
conference in years. But Lewis has
been helped by the Spartans' good
balance. At the other half is Dew-
ey Lincoln, who also is a speed-
ster. At fullback is Roger Lopes,
who can go inside or outside and
is one of the finest fullbacks in
the Big Ten.
"They have two quarterbacks,
Dave McCormick and Dick Proeb-
stle, who get the job done and
pose the threat of passing.
"We can't permit our defenses
to play too much at Lewis, or
the others will get loose. We
would be glad to force Michigan
State to do more passing - but
that would take a lot of doing."
Illini tackles Archie Sutton and
Brian Duniec both showed excel-
lent progress from ankle sprains
suffered against Wisconsin.

EAST LANSING-Defense and
more defense was stressed at the
Michigan State football workout
"Defense was our strong point
last week," said Coach Duffy
Daugherty as he prepared his
team to meet Illinois Saturday for
a game that will decide Big Ten
and Rose Bowl honors. "I'm be-
coming more and more aware of
the importance of defense."
There were several times,
Daugherty said, that MSU could
have lost to Notre Dame in the
game won 12-7 if it had not been
for the defense.
Daugherty scheduled a typical
Tuesday workout with 35-minutes
each of offense and defense and
then a rehearsal of defensive
"Everybody is getting Rose Bowl
hysteria," said Daugherty. "They
are way up on cloud 16 and
By LLOYD GRAFF
"The higher up you go, the more
your rear end is exposed."
So gymnastics coach Newt Lo-
ken capsuled his outlook for the
coming season. His charges are
defending NCAA champions and
have won the Big. Ten title for
three consecutive years. The avow-
ed aim of Loken and the team is
"number four in '64."
But if Loken is going to satisfy
his ambitions he will have to find
able replacements for two solid
gymnasts and a magnificent one
who exhausted their eligibility.
The able ones gone are Jim Hynds
who gathered points in several
events and Barry Spicer, who
turned in excellent work in floor
Of course, the superb all-around
performer, ex-captain Gill Larose
is also gone. Larose was perhaps
Michigan's greatest gymnast ever
-and proved himself to be the
finestin college last year as he
won first places in two events,
high bar andvaulting, and also
winning the all-around competi-
tion in the NCAA championship.
Larose scored points in all events
except trampoline and tumbling.
He won the Big Ten all-around
But even with the substantial
losses the team has incurred Lo-
ken is not spotting his trampoline
with tears. He has confidence his

mats are well manned. And well
His new captain is Arno Las-
cari, a senior from Sacramento,
California, who, though a superb
gymnast in his own right, operat-
ed slightly in the shadow of La-
rose last year. "We expect Lascari
to win as many points as Larose
did last year and perhaps more,"
This projection is not surprising
in that Lascari got almost as many
points as Larose last year and
this year he will not have to com-
pete against him. In fact, in the
Big Ten meet both won three
events although Larose picked up
more points in other events to
win the all-around.
Loken is hoping that the many-
skilled Lascari will sharpen his
work on the rings and move up in
the all-around. The parallel bars
and the high bar rank as his
Lascari will not be up to norm
for perhaps a month because he
sustained an injured wrist in prac-
tice a week ago when he fell off
the parallel bars. This will mean
that he will probably miss the
Midwest Open but should be in
fairly good form by the Big Ten
Power in Depth
Michigan's power lies in its
depth of personnel in each of the
various gymnastics events, each
a unique test of balance, strength
and stamina. "
Take tumbling for instance.
Michigan's crew of jumping jacks
is headed by Phil Bolton and Mike
Henderson. "Henderson is looking
very good right now and Bolton
is looking better after recovering
from a bout with mono," said
Bolton finished second in the
Big Ten behind the invincible Hal
Holmes of Illinois last season, but
Holmes has graduated leaving
tumbling up in the air.
John Hamilton also works on
the mats as well as the tramp
and in floor ex. Floor ex is his
forte as he took the Big Ten and
NCAA titles last year. Loken said
he was looking "very fine in prac-
tice." Dave Brod completes the
Safe in Trampoline.
In the trampoline Michigan is
about as safe as Sonny Liston at
a sewing circle. Gary Erwin and
Fred Sanders are almost sure bets
to take first and second in the
event. Sanders won first in the
Big Ten and Erwin took top spot
in the NCAA last year. This was
the pattern of the entire season.
On the sidehorse Loken will be The team will have a good stock
using Paul Levy along with Las- of newcomers to supplement the
cari. Levy finished fourth in the returnees. Alex Frecska, although
Big Ten and is aiming to lift his a junior, will get an opportunity
status this year. to make a second debut. Last year
he injured his wrist early in the
season and Loken kept him out
for almost its entirety.
"Frecska is in excellent shape
now. He should give us some more
strength in the all-around events
and be a strong backup for Las-
cari," said Loken.
One sophomore who should def-
initely add points is Rich Blanton
of Denver, Colorado. "Blanton will
help us in the rings, parallel bars
and floor ex," he went on "and
other sophomores like Ned Duke,
Don Fillip, John Cashman and
Dave Brod will all make a con-
tribution to the team."
Prepare for First Meet
The members of the squad have
been practicing since school be-
the Midwest Open in Chicago on
gan, honing up for the first meet,
Dec. 6-7. The best teams in the
country will be represented at that
It will be a good indication of
what is in store later on. Loken
envisions Iowa, Michigan State
and Minnesota as his principal
competitors in the conference with
Southern Illinois, California and
Southern Cal plus the Big Ten
schools as those posing the big-
gest threat to Michigan's repeat-
ing in the NCAA.
EASY DOES IT-Gymnast Alex Frecska handles himself with
ease on the side horse. Fresca, a junior, will try to aid in Michi-
gan's quest for its fourth consecutive NCAA gymnastics cham-
pionship. He was unable to compete last year because he broke
his wrist early in the season.

When you've got Michigan State
backed up against their own goal
line, watch out.
Notre- Dame penned the Spar-
tans on their 15-yard line in the
fourth quarter Saturday, and a
7-6 Irish lead was looking good.
Then Sherman Lewis, only 152
pounds, burst all the way for the
touchdown that gave Michigan
State a 12-7 victory.
It was the fifth time this year
that Sherman had gone more than
80 yards, and the run earned the
senior co-captain of the Spartans
Back of the -Week honor in the
Associated Press survey.
Lewis Scores Twice
Lewis, who comes from Louis-
ville, Ky., also scored the first
Michigan State touchdown. He
was the leading rusher for the
Spartans with 138 yards and play-
ed on defense most of the same.
"I don't see how any one man
could be any more valuable to any
team than Lewis has been to us,"
said Coach Duffy Daugherty after
It was a good Saturday for run-
ning backs, elsewhere. Junior full-
back Brian Piccolo of Wake For-
est led his team to a 20-19 victory
over South Carolina, breaking the
nation's longest major college los-
ing streak at 18. Piccolo gained
140 yards in 21 rushes and start-
ed the comeback from a 19-7
deficit with a 16-yard touchdown
run. Then he kicked the game-
winning extra point.
Paul Martha, Pitt's left half-
back, scored on a long run for the
second week in a row to start the
victory over Army. He had 103
yards on six carries.
Fullback Steve Murphy gained
103 yards for Northwestern, more
than the entire Ohio State team
and had two touchdowns.
Sophomore halfback L a r r y
Shields scored both touchdowns
for Oklahoma against Missouri,
one on a blistering punt return,
and made two important pass in-
Two quarterbacks, Terry Isaac-1
son of Air Force and Archie Rob-

only when a shirt is worn. Gant is finicky about shirts-fit and roll of collar,
proper amount of "show" when jacket is worn. Gant is finicky about drape,
