Badgers To Try for Bowl Bid;
Gophers' Warmath Hangs On

MIKE STOCK
... top Big Ten scorer'

MINNEAPOLIS OP) - Football
melodrama on a grand scale,
matching a title contender against
a tormented tailender with its
coach in trouble, turns Saturday's
Minnesota - Wisconsin game into
one of the crisis battles of the
year.
For 69 years Minnesota, and1
Wisconsin have been'playing foot-
ball in a generally cordial rivalry
that is one of the nation's oldest.
But rarely have -they met in a
situation that has the theatrics of
this one.
Wisconsin cai at least tie for
the Big Ten championship by win-
ning, perhaps get the Rose Bowl
trip that it wants as badly as the
title. Its coach, Milt Bruhn, is a
Gopher alumnus who just a day
ago had to deny that Minnesota
groups are trying to pry him away
for the Gopher coaching job.
Wisconsin Aims
Minnesota has no targets as
lofty as the ones Wisconsin is
shooting for. But it wants-des-
perately, to hear the players tell
it-to prove that it can beat a
ranking football team after being
kicked around in 21/2 years of
nearly uninterrupted failure.
The Gopher coach, Murray War-
math, may be directing his last
game at Minnesota. Under inter-
mittent attack since 1957, he is
now in a virtual state of siege.
Downtown groups say they have
enough cash pledged to buy the
last two years of his contract. The
university itself may do it.
Warmath possibly has made up

his mind and the Wisconsin game
may have no bearing on his deci-
sion. Despite the increasing ten-
sion around him, he was relaxed
last Saturday to the point of join-
ing a team pillow fight on the
flight back from Purdue.
But it is doubtful if ever there
was a game h.; wanted more to
win.
Avoid Solo Finish
Added to these elements are the
Gophers' eagerness to avoid -the
school's first solo finish in last
place in the Big Ten and the in-
tensity of a battle between husky
neighbors who usually produce he-
man football no matter what the
stakes.

And the whole happy show will
be viewed not only by some 55,000
fans here but kibitzers from coast
to coast via television.
Minnesota has been working out
secretly all week but makes no
attempt to conceal that it is gear-
ing its defenses to stop Dale Hack-
bart, who has been especially hard
on Minnesota the last two years.
Despite a 4-2 record in the Big
Ten against Minnesota's 1-5, the
Badgers may encounter more
trouble than the figures suggest.
Minnesota cannot handle speed,
but the Badgers have little of this.
In a trench battle along the line,
the Gophers usually hold up pretty
well.

Stock First i Scoring

Teams Battle for Bowl Bids
As Stars Seek Top Honors-

Bob Ferguson, third in total rush-
ing with 288 yards, has the best
conference average, 7.2 yards on
40 hauls. Next most active carrier
to Stock is Indiana fullback Vic
Jones, fourth in yardage with 269
on 78 tries.
Jeter's Iowa teammate, quar-
terback Olen Treadway, apparent-
ly is destined to take both the
passing and total ofense titles.
Treadway wound up Big Ten
play with an aerial record of 63
completions in 111 tosses for a
.568 percentage.

GRID SELECTIONS
Bowl bids are at stake this Saturday as the final Grid Picks
contest of the year has its usual 20 games to be picked by contest-
ants hopeful of winning two free passes to the Michigan Theatre, now
showing "Career" with Dean Martin and Shirley Maclaine.
Saturday's contests will go a long way toward deciding who will
play in the various major holiday bowl games with Syracuse the
only team having accepted a bid so far, to the Cotton Bowl.
As a result of this incentive which many of the squads have,
the games will present a double problem. The way to try and solve
it is by sending in your 20 choices to Grid Picks, the Michigan Daily,
420 Maynard, Ann Arbor, or fill out a blank at The Daily. Mailed en-
tries would be preferable on a post card, with name, address, and
telephone included.
THIS WEEK'S GAMES

CHICAGO (p) - The payoff
round comes up in the Big Ten
Football race Saturday, and with
it the last chance for several
highly ranked n.idwest candidates
to gild their all-America bids.
The nationally televised game
between Wisconsin and Minnesota
will spotlight the talents of three
fine Badger performers - guard
Jerry Stalcup, tackle Dan Lan-
phear and quarterback Dale Hack-
bart. The Badgers are shooting
for the Conference title and a
possible Rose Bowl trip.
Under the same pressure as Wis-
consin, Northwestern's Wildcats
will be clawing for the same prizes
at Illinois whose guard Bill Burrell
is a prime All-America candidate.
OSU Guard
O uDropped
COLUMBUS (R)-Ernie Wright,
starting right guard of Ohio
State's football team for the last
two years, has been "separated
from Ohio State University for
disciplinary reasons," it was an-
nounced yesterday.
The announcement came from
William S. Guthrie, director of
student affairs. He explained that
it is a policy of long standing of
the university that it does not dis-
close the reasons for such action.
Wright, 6' 3", 242-pound junior
from Toledo, broke in as a regu-
lar last year and started the cur-
rent season as ta'ckle. He was re-
turned to right guard after the
first three games.
He will be replaced in Satur-
day's game with Michigan by
Gabe Hartman, 209-pound junior
from Troy, who held down the
right guard spot while Wright
worked as tackle.
Guthrie explained that Wright
"understands he may initiate his
own request for return to the uni-
versity at some future date."

The number one target of Bur-
rell and his Illini mates will be
Northwestern halfback Ron Bur-
ton, a superb runner, but one who
has been plagued by injury.and
fumbling.
Other Northwestern stars still
well regarded are center Jim An-
dreotti and Fullback Mike Stock.
Another important game, Iowa
State versus Oklahoma, will put to
an acid test the ability of the
nation's two top rushers, fullback
Tom Watkins and halfback Dwight
Nichols, both of Iowa State.
This game may not only bolster,
an All-America bid by either, but
could blow the Cyclones into the
Orange Bowl.
Most Exciting Back
Board member Maury White of
the Des Moines Register and Tri-
bune described Nichols as "the
most exciting back in the Big
Eight since Bobby Reynolds' soph-
omore year at Nabraska."
Ohio State end Jim Houston,
still in the All-America running,
finishers against Michigan Satur-
day, while two other top-notch
wingmen, Iowa's Don Norton and
Notre Dame's Monty Sickles duel
in the Hawkeye-Irish meeting at
Iowa City.
Michigan State's fast-finishing
quarterback, Dean Look, gets his
last shot against Miami of Florida
Friday night. If Northwestern and
Wisconsin both lose Saturday,
then Look can be credited with
steering the Spartans to the Big
Ten title.
Larry Sherry
Wins Award
NEW YORK (P)-Larry Sherry,
rookie relief ace of the Los Angeles
Dodgers, yesterday was named the
October winner in the S. Rae Hic-
kok Professional Athlete of the
Year balloting.
Sherry, who won two games and
saved two others as the Dodgers
beat the White Sox in the World
Series, won by a wide margin over
Cleveland Browns' fullback Jimmy
Brown. Others high in the voting
were Ted Kluszewski of the White
Sox, quarterback Johnny Unitas
of the Baltimore Colts, second
baseman Charlie Neal of the Dodg-
ers and pro basketball star Wilt
Chamberlain.
Earlier monthly winners have
been Bob Pettit, Ed Lubanski, El-
gin Baylor, Art Wall, Harvey Had-
dix; Ingemar Johansson, Jose Be-
cerra, Willie McCocey, and Early
Wynn.
