Michigan Outplays Indiana,
But Mistakes Prove Costly

(Continued from Page 1)
down. He was tackled immediate-
ly on the Michigan 39..
From there, Indiana used its
"Common-Named Couple" attack
of Jones and (Captain Ted)
Smith to run behind its tough
line. Smith did the most 'damage
in the six-play drive as he scooted
22 yards on one play and swept'
around left end for the final six
End Ron Miller kicked the point
and boosted Indiana to a 7-0 lead.
Michigan's offense was stopped
by fumbles on its two succeeding
occasions, and Indiana capitalized
on the errors to touch off the scor-
ing drives.
The first of these drives faltered
when a Hoosier field goal fell
short, but the second one meant a
touchdown surge. Bob Dattaglia,
a little second-string guard, re-
covered a fumble to start things
on the Michigan 22.
Rio, Callahan Injured
Then in quick fashion Indiana
slipped through the Michigan de-
fense that was now without the
services, of injured linebackers
Tony Rio and Alex Callahan.
Wingback Richie Bradford dash-
ed 13 yards on the first play and
was followed by tailback Willie
Hunter's sweep to the seven. Brad-
ford capped the abreviateld march
by carrying Reid Bushong into the
end zone on a six-yard end sweep.
Michigan g t back in the game
in the secon quarter and it ap-
peared that e contest might be a
replica of, the Illinois affair last
week when Michigan came back
after a poor first quarter.
The Wolverines took a short
punt by Smith on their own 30. In
10 plays Michigan moved steadily
to the Hoosier 25. A pair of Nos-
kin-Johnson passes and first down
run by fullbacks Ken Tureaud and
Tunnicliff aided the assault.
On the eleventh play Noskin
faded back and found Halstead
moving between the opposing half-
backs. He fired a pass to the end
on the 14-yard line and Halstead
zig-zagged into the end zone.
Halstead also kicked the point
as Indiana's margin was narrowed
to 13-7.
Too Many Mistakes

But the Hoosiers struck back
immediately. After the kickoff they
paraded 66-yards on 15 plays to
a score. The drive was culminated
by fullback Don Cromer's plunge
from the one-foot line with just
1:34 left in the half. Again Miller
missed the extra-point kick, but
Indiana had a 19-7 halftime lead.
Michigan remained a spirited
team the second half. Noskin hit
9 of 16 passes and halfback Ben-
nie McRae kept the Hoosier de-
fense edgy with his off - tackle
slants and endruns.
The Wolverine defense, spear-
headed by Halstead and Johnson,
contained the Hoosiers and limited
them to 55 yards for the half.
Michigan had 151.
Errors Kill Drives
But Michigan's best drives once
more were halted by fumbles and
interceptions. And when Michigan
did err the Hoosier opportunists
took full advantage.
Indiana finished all Michigan's
hopes in the opening moments of
the fourth stanza. Indiana moved
the ball to the Michigan 14 in
three plays after the Stamos inter-
On the fourth play, Smith--who
completed three of four previous
passes-lofted a high pass to Ted
Aucreman on the five. Aucreman
struggled into the end zone and in
doing so, ended all Michigan
thoughts of victory.-
The final 13:35 were just a ques-
tion of whether or not Michigan
could win the statistical battle,

AIR BATTLE-Michigan's Bob Johnson fights with an Indiana
halfback for one of Stan Noskin's aerials in yesterday's action.
Johnson was suceessful here but too often the Wolverines wersn't
and the Hoosiers intercepted as the Michigan mistakes paved the
way for the Indiana triumph.

Praise Efforts of Two Good Teams

Daily Sports Editor
Special to The Daily
ball coaches agreed on two things
here yesterday:
Indiana's Phil Dickens and
Michigan's Bump Elliott said they
saw two good football teams play
good games.
Dickens, whose team has been
hit by bard luck of goal-line de-
cisions In the last two weeks, said
his team did a fine job in its
fourth win of the year.
"They were physically relaxed
and mentally alert," he said. "And
that's the way you have to be in
this league."

line. Michigan held Indiana to
117 yards on the ground.
Elliott was sorry about his
team's errors, but pointed out that
hard-hitting and hard-charging
Indiana linemen helped cause
some of them.

Michigan got continued good,
statistical performances from Stan
Noskin, Bennie McRae and Bob
Noskin had his best day of the
year in passing yardage, conjplet-
ing 14 passes for 154 yards. He
had completed 26 for 204 in five
previous Big Ten games.
"He's a terrific thrower," Dick-
ens said about the Michigan quar-

the one he received at Illinois last

cluded Alex ballahan, who had a
leg injury, and end George Mans,
who was "clipped" out of the
game in the first half.

About the only Hoosiers moan-
ing despite victory were the ticket
salesmen. Only 27,000 paid to see
the game and there was even a
question as to how many of those
showed up.
Next week Michigan will finish
the season against Ohio State.
