its healthiest unit of the still-
young season.
Only right tackle Jon Schopf
will be missing from last week's
starting team. Jared Bushong has
gotten the nod in his absence and
has two burly relief men in Skip
Hildebrandt and Don Deskins.
In Good Health
Captain George Genyk, end Bob
Johnson and /quarterback Stan
Noskin, all of whom were incapaci-
tated sometime or other against
Oregon State, are back in their
Elliott has again postponed to
game time the decision of elevat-
ing Bennie McRae to the first
team left half post. But whether
or not the flying sophomore from
Newport News, Va. answers the
opening whistle, he'll undoubtedly

share much of the action with
present front-runner Darrell Har-
Following the oft-quoted "noth-
ing succeeds like success" theme,
Elliott will stick with the same
three-platoon formula that netted
his Wolverines their first win of
the season last week against Ore-
"We'll try and do what we did
last week," he explained, "and will
probably spot players even more-
on both offense and defense."
Thus, it shouldn't' be too sur-
prising if more Michigan players
get in their licks today than even
last week, when 38 men were used.
What do rival coaches Elliott
and Ara Parseghian fear most
from each other's teams?
Aerials Trouble
Parseghian thinks Noskin's aeri-
als will give the Wildcats the most
trouble. Noskin has hit on 20 of
40. Johnson is far and away the
Wolverines' leading receiver with
nine catches good for 109 yards.
Elliott believes he has much
more to worry about.
"It's hard to pinpoint their
greatest strength because they run
and pass equally well," he laments.
"For instance, they beat Iowa on
their passing, yet they turn around
and whip Minnesota on their run-
ning game."
'M' Leads in Series
In the 34-match series between
today's two combatants, Michigan
has won 22, lost nine and tied
But no matter how lopsided the
series standings are, last year's
addition to the loss column gives
Northwestern the upper hand, the
Wolverines feel. It's nothing that
a few well-timed touchdowns to-
day won't cure.

The big story in Big Ten foot-
ball today is the clash between
once beatens, Iowa and Wisconsin
at Camp Randall Stadium in
Madison. .
The Badgers, their ambitious
hopes of an unbeaten, season
smashed by Purdue last weekend
must win today to stay in the
bowl picture. Iowa, not eligible for
the Rose Bowl, needs to win to
stay inscontention for the confer-
ence crown.

--Daily-Fred Shippey
AERIAL ATTACK-Michigan's hopes for an upset over a highly-favored Northwestern contingent
rest mainly on the success of quarterback Stan Noskin's (27) success as a passer. Noskin's favorite
target will probably be end Bob Johnson (at the left) who' is the Wolverines' leading pass receiver.

Carroll Rosenbloom as he came
over to congratulate Berry.
"That was the play I described
to you on the plane coming out
here," Berry said to Rosenbloomi,
"I'm sure glad it worked."
Fans Surround Locker Room
As Berry and the rest of the
Colts headed off towards the
showers, the fans began to crowd
around the door to the locker
room, awaiting the emergence of
their favorites. 'Big Daddy' Lips-
comb, a native of Detroit, and Jim
Parker were among the first to
leave and be swamped by the
eager autograph-seekers. Some of
the linemen and defensive half-
backs not so familiar to the fans
slipped out practically unnoticed.
Guard Steve Myhra, the Colts'
place-kicker stopped on his way to
the team bus to answer still a few
more questions.
Toughest Wind
"Boy, this was the toughest
wind I ever kicked in. The velo-
city was really strong way up, but
at field level the wind hit thej
right field stands, bounced back
and was blowing the other way,
Myhra said, shaking his head.
"If you kicked the ball low, it
drifted one way and if you got it
up highs it blew the other way.
That's what happened when I
missed that short field goal at-
tempt. I didn't know which way
to play it so I just aimed at the
center, got too much foot into it
and off she sailed. I was lucky on
the one I made."

Collegiate Football Today.

Hawkeyes Best on Paper
The Hawkeyes rebounded from
their 14-10 loss to Northwestern
with a 37-8 shellacking of Mich-
igan State. On paper their team
speed and power appears to be
enough to beat Wisconsin. How-
ever the Badgers still remember
the 20-9 defeat handed them last
fall. bythe Hawkeyes and Dale
Hackbart and company are deter-
mined to make amends.
Over at Columbus, unbeaten
Purdue meets twice beaten Ohio
State. The Boilermakers, riding
high after last week's 21-0 shut-
out of Wisconsin, will have to play
without two of their big stars. Bob
Jarus, their flashy fullback, was
injured last week and Ross Fitch-
ner, the starting quarterback, still
hasn't recovered from the injury
he suffered in the Notre Dame
game two weeks ago.
Further bad news hit the Boiler-
makres yesterday when Bernie
Allen, Fitchner's replacement, sus-
tained an ankle injury in a freak
accident during practice in the
Ohio State stadium. The mishap
occurred when he stepped in a
hole on the turf.
OSU Out For Blood
Ohio State, smarting from the
two consecutive shutouts handed
them by Southern California and
Illinois will be at full strength.
Not since 1897 has an Ohio State
team been shut but three' games
in succession. Unless Purdue's of-
fense is in high gear this after-
noon, it could be a rough day for
the Boilermakers.

At Champaign, Illinois is host
to Minnesota in a game involving
the two big question marks of the
conference. The Gophers, clobr
bered in the opener by Nebraska
32-12, have come back strong to
beat Indiana and last week they
almost upset powerful Northwest-
The Illini, also have played well
in their last two games after get-
ting shutout by Indiana in their
opener. Two weeksi ago powerful
Army was beaten and last week
they whitewashed Ohio State.
This afternoon's game probably
will be a battle of the lines. Min-
nesota's big line will outweigh the
forward wall of Illinois, but the
Illini have more speed up front.
Illini's Homecoming
The big factor tomorrow may be
the fact that it's Homecoming at
Champaign. Another factor may
be the jinx that Illinois seems to
hold over the Gophers in Memor-
ial Stadium. Minnesota hasn't
won there in 40 years.
In the two intersectional games
involving Big Ten teams today,
Michigan State is at home to
Notre Dame and Indiana is at
Nebraska.n T
The Spartans, who looked good
here two weeks ago, played hor-
ribly at Iowa last week. The Irish
on the other hand, have alternat-
ed winning and losing. Last week
they beat California 28-7. The
game at East Lansing will be on
national TV.
Indiana's young team will face
Nebraska, the team that beat
Minnesota in the first game of the
year. Minnesota is the only team
to beat the Hoosiers. Surprisingly
enough, Indiana has been in-
stalled as the favorite.

Miami Defeats Navy;
'Rule Chiange in NBA

The rest of the squad was fil-
tering out of the, dressing room.
Unitas, Alan Ameche and Lenny
Moore were swamped by the auto-
graph hounds.
Almost the whole squad had
left and so had most of the wait-
ing fans when a fairly tall young
man, dressed in an Ivy League
suit, business hat and thick glasses
stepped from the door.
Two young fans were waiting
nearby and one said to the other,
"Come on, let's get his autograph."
"Don't be silly," shouted the
other youth, "he's not a player,
look at him."

Higher Scoring Games
BOSTON - A new rule, tested
during the exhibition season, has
been approved by the NBA board
of governors and will be in effect
st a r t i n g with today's opener,
League President Maurice Podo-
loff announced in New York.
The rule is: after the offensive
team has advanced the ball to the

front court area, the defensive
player is not permitted to place
himself in the key for longer than
three seconds with no arlparent
attempt to play his opponent.
The penalty for violation is a
technical foul shot by the offen-
sive team, which also retains pos-
session of the ball out of bounds
in a line where play was stopped.
Tiger, Brave Trade
DETROIT - The Detroit Tigers
yesterday announced a five-player
major-minor league deal with the
Milwaukee Braves.
General Manager Rick Ferrell
said the swap brings Milwaukee
infielder Casey Wise to the Tigers.
In other phases of the two-for
three deal:
--Milwaukee receives catcher
Charlie Lau from Charleston.
-Charleston receives, pitcher
Don Kaiser and catcher Mike
Roarke from Louisville.
-Louisville receives pitcher Don
Lee from Charleston.
Fullmer To Defend Title

West Jordan, Utah, has signed for
a Dec. 4 title bout against Spider
Webb of Chicago.
Althea Turns Pro
NEW YORK - Althea Gibson,
the pride of Harlem, and Karol
Fageros, Miami's gold panties girl,
will chuck their amateur standing
early next week to make a profes-
sional tennis tour of the world.

"Battle of the unbeaten" will be
an overused cliche this football
Saturday as ten of the nation's top
teams will meet head on in Sta-
diums all over the country.
Perhaps the day's top game is
to be one played under the lights
at Little Rock. Combatants are the
University of Texas, ranked third
in the country and boasting one
of the speediest offensive teams
ever to hit the gridiron, and Ar-
kansas, another Southwest Con-
ference powerhouse that also has
won its first four games this fall.
Roses to Winner?
The West Coast has two of the
five dream contests, one of which
will help determine the Big Ten's
opponent come January 1st. That
contest will be between seventh-
ranked Southern, California and
surprising Washington.
The powerful Trojans are ban-
ned from bowl competition-the
result of a NCAA recruiting viola-
tion-but the Huskies aren't. And
a win over the favored Southern
California team would label them
the number one contender for
Rose Bowl competition.
The other big game in the West
finds the Air Force Academny bat-
tling with Oregon, another Rose
Bowl candidate.
The passing arm of quarterback
Rich Mayo, a prime candidate for
All-American honors, should give
the Falcons a big advantage in the
offensive department.
East Has Its Share
The remaining two "unbeaten
battles" take place in the East,
where the nation's top defensive
team, Syracuse, meets Holy Cross
and unscored-upon Yale clashes
with Cornell in an Ivy League con-
In the South, Louisiana State,
still number one in the nation,
faces what could be a real trouble-
some Kentucky team. But the
Tigers with three units of top-
flight players, including the cele-
brated Chinese Raiders; appear to
be just too strong for anyone to

Fourth-ranked Georgia Tech
will once again have their hands
full when they take on always-
strong Auburn. For. the Engineers
it will be the fifth Saturday in a,
row without a breather. Bobby
Dodd's club has whipped Ken-
tucky, Southern Methodist, Clem-
son, and Tennessee on successive
Saturday and is still looking for
its first "soft touch."
The South's other top team,
fifth-ranked Mississippi, faces
minimum opposition against a
weak Tulane squad.
