Ford, Carr lead Pistons

past Buck
Special to the Daily
DETROIT - In a game that resembled
high school rather than professional basket-
ball, the Detroit Pistons defeated the Mil-
waukee Bucks 140-132 here last night. The
key to the Piston victory was guard Chris
Ford who scored 20 points, handed out 15
assists and registered 6 steals.
As usual, Herb Brown was satisfied with
the victory.
"I LIKE WINNING," he said, "It doesn't
make a difference if we win a run and shoot
game like tonight or a slower tempoed
game. I like to win."
Brown wasn't concerned with the numer-
ous mistakes (missed lay-ups and 28 turn-
overs) either.
"In a running game you always turn the
ball over more," he said.
M. L. Car rand Howard Porter were high
scorers for the Pistons, tallying 25 points
"I've scored all my life," Carr said. "Last



year I averaged 18 points a game. I can
score if I have to."
TRAILING BY SIX at the half and by as
many as 12 points in the game, the Pistons
stormed back to take the lead for goa:,
82-80, at 4:21 of the third uarrter. Detroit
outscored the Bucks 16-8 after that and led
96-88 going into the fourth quarter.
After that, it was a matter of playing out
the game. Milwaukee never came closer
than nine points and that was with 40 sec-
onds left in the contest.
Marvin Barnes continued to impress with
some outstanding baske s and rebounds.
Carr's 25 points represents a new career
high for him pnd Bob Lanier added 22 points
of his own, 18 coming in the second half.
Brown wouldn't praise any one single
"CHRIS (FORD) gave us a big lift," he
said, "but you can't single out anybody in
the second half. Eric (Money) and Kevin
(Porter) put pressure on Milwaukee. Ralph
(Simpson) and Howard (Porter) did well

Michigan's basketball team,
after shuffling Northwestern's
deck 102-65 Thursday night,
deals with Wisconsin beginning,
at 2:05' this afternoon in Cris-
ler Arena.
The Badgers, 4-5, openede
their Big Ten season in East1
Lansing against Michiganx
State Thursday night. Theyt
were on the drubbee end of an
84-61 score.
"Right now we're strug-e
gling," said a pessimisticc
Badger coach Bill Cofield,
"and you just don't come
into Michigan struggling, asV
Northwestern found out."
The rookie Big Ten coach
has, two basic worries: hisI
team, and the Wolverines.
Four of the Badger starters
are freshmen. Even though
Wisconsin had a fine recruiting
year, its inexperience tips the
scales in Michigan's favor.
Bo finds

"We've probably got the
youngest starting team in any
major conference in the coun-
try," Cofield said. "Our
players have potential. We're
getting ready for the future."
The only non-freshman start-
er is senior guard Bob' Falk.
Falk has averaged 11.3 points
per game this season and leads
the team in assists.
Rickey Green, who stunted
the point growth of Northwest-
ern's Billy McKinney, will
cover the 6-2 Falk.

To Wisconsin's credit is
victory over highly - touted De-
Paul and a hard-fought seven
point loss to Marquette on the
road. It is however, the same
team which Northern Illinois
trumped by 24 points.
Michigan coach Johnny Orr
takes no team lightly. 'I get
so nervous before the games,"
Orr said after the Northwest-'
ern game, "that if we play-
ed a junior high team I
think I'd be nervous."
Today is no exception. "Wis-

Special To The Daily
KALAMAZOO - The Michi-
gan men's and women's gym-
nastics teams defeated their
Western Michigan counterparts
in a coed meet last night. ,
The Michigan women barely
edged Western, 83.6 to 83.5,
while the men won 193.8 to 187.7.
Coach Anne Cornell's squad
competed in only three events
as the uneven bars were broken.
"I was disappointed," said
Cornell, "because I felt that
the unevens was a very strong
event for us. It turned out to
be a really close meet."
The women failed to take first
place in vaulting, balance beam
or floor exercise, but swept sec--
ond and third place in all three
events to insure the win. Cor-
nell praised captain Ginger Ro-
bey, who took seconds in vault-
ing and floor exercise while
placing third on the beam.
"Ginger did a terrific job for
us," said Cornell. ."She was
last up in every event and really
had to pull some points for us."
Cornell termed Dot Sum-
mers' 7.3 performance in floor
exercise a "vast improvement,."
and cited freshman Beth Carl-
sen, second on the beam, as "'a
hard competitor."
"It was exciting," Cornell
concluded. "The girls really
enjoyed participating in a co-
ed meet. There were a lot
more things to watch."
Newt Loken, the Michigan
men's coach, was not so en-
thralled. "I thought our team
looked rather shaky," said Lo-
ken. "We're capable ,of scoring
over 200. But I think that's an
effect of the long layoff. Our
last competition was back on
December 4."
One bright spot. was Gordon
Higman, who placed second on
the parallel bars with an 8.5.
"I thought Higman did a great
job in his first four event of
collegiate competition," said
The next action for Loken's
squad is January 14-15 at the

Big Ten Invitational at Crisler
Arena. Competition is at 7,:30
Friday night and at 10 a.m.
on Saturday.
The women travel to the West-
ern Ontario Invitational in Lon-
don, Ontario on Jan. 22.

Nicholas Rav. au eur extradordinaire, directed some of the most
significant films of the 50's (Rebel without a Cause, In a Lonely
Place, Johnny Guitar), A brilliant. volatile rebel himself, Ray
dropped out of Hollywood at what should have been the peak of
his career. This penetrating documentary examines that career
and includes extensive clips from his best films, conversations
with Ray, Francois Truffaut, and scenes of Ray with his film
students. "Ray may well be his own most complex hero. He's a
romantic with a fierc'ely realistic v'ew of things. I'm a Stranger

tary."-vincent Canby. Francois Truffaut, Nicholas Ray, John

(ELlA KAZAN, 1955) 8:00 ONLY
Kazan's adaptation of Steinbeck's novel was the film that turned
a talented stage-Tv actor named James Dean into a superstar.
Dean plays Carl Trask, a confused adolescent searching desperately
for lost love and tenderness, with a gut-wrenching sensitivity
that prompted his director to say, "Dean didn't play Cal, he was
Cal." The youth of that period immediately recognized the
honesty of his performance and flocked to the film, making Dean
-the hottest star on the warners lot. "In James Dean, today's
youth discovers itself."-Francois Truffaut.
(NICHOLAS RAY, 1955) 9:45 ONLY
James Dean was perhaps the most sensitive, intense, vulnerable,
best actor to grace the screen. Rebel without a Cause is his best
performance. Playing a young man on his first day in a new
high school, Dean portrayed the pent-up, confused frustrations
of youth perfectly. There are many reasons to see Rebel, but
James Dean overshadows them all. You'll probably never see
acting like this again.
