Michigan Takes Seven Firsts;
Skinner Edged Out By Jodka

phia, Nov. 29.-(YP)-The man-power
which had sent Navy into action as a
pronounced favorite over Army to-
day paid off in the second half.
Outcharged, outfought and out-
scored by a scrapping, snapping Cadet
eleven for the first two quarters, the]
Middies cave back fresh at the start
of the third period and drove to two
touchdowns. That made the final
score, Navy 14, Army 6, for Navy's
third straight triumph in this classic
series and 17th in the 42 games-that
have been played.
Third Quarter Attack
There was no stopping the Middies
in that third quarter, and there was
no getting by, through or over, them
for the balance of the half. Army
still was in there trying, but it made
only one serious threat, a drive to first
down on the Middie 17 that ended
abruptly when Bill Busik intercepted
an Army pass two plays later.
Busik, bowing out of his rivalry to-
gether with a whole raft of first and
second classmen who will be gradu-
ated into the fleet either next mponth
or next June, made his farewell ap-
pearance a dazzling one.
He ran and he passed, but most par-
ticularly he ran. This 185- pound six
footer from Pasadena, Calif., was just
so many pounds sand so many feet of
twisting, squirming, fightiig dyna-
mite that either hit at the holes or
made holes where none had been
Army kicked off to open the sec-
ond half, and fullback Sherry Wer-
ner of Reading, Pa., launched the
scoring march by taking the ball a
yard back in the end zone and com-
ing up to his 31 yard line. Then
Busik wentinto action.
Sparks Sailors
He handled the ball on all but
three plays and accounted for the,
biggest single gain by passing ,to Capt.
Bob Froude , of San ternardino,
Calif., for 27 yards. He threw' in the
most vital rushing gain, a 15 yard
sprint around the Army left side
that gave Navy first down on the
Army 1.
Busik, knocked out of, bounds on
that play, also had the wind knocked
out of him. Phil Hurt, 195 pound sub
fullback; from Astoria, N.Y., was sent
in, and he exploded through the mid-

dle of the Army line for the touch-
down. Then in came Navy's reliable
Bob Leonard, place-kicker from
Gainesville, Tex., to kick the extrar
Once more Army kicked off, and
once more Navy drove straight down
the field, 68 yards this time in 131
plays and a harmful penalty on
Army. Busik started the drive roll-
ing with a 20 yard runback of the
He was getting a bit groggy by this
time, so Coach Emery E. (Swede)
Larson sent in 150 pound Howie Clark
of San Pedro, Calif., to relieve him.
Clark, a speedster, supposedly had
hurt his knee seriously in yesterday's
final workout, but he outsprinted the
Army defenders to the far left hand
corner. Leonard came in for his one
play, and made it good.
Cadets Tally
In the second quarter, though,
Army went to work. Mazur took a
Navy punton his 21, and slipped it to
Hill. The sophomore streaked up
the west sideline for 57 yards before'
Werner nailed him on the Nayy 23.
' Army lost for having a back in mo-
tion, but then sent Mazur slashing
for 13 to the 15. On the next play
Hank walloped off the Navy left
tackle, to be forced out by Clark on
the 1. He made two feet on his first
try, then turned over the job to Jim
Watkins, sub fullback from San Saba,
Tex., who on his second attempt belt-
ed over the Navy right guard for the

Bears Top Stanford
PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 29--'P)-
University of California close, its
Coast Conference season in glorious
fashion today with a stunning 16 to 0
triumph over arch-rival Stanford,
the top heavy favorite, before 70,000
frenzied fogtball fans. The surprising
Golden Bears outclassed Stanford all
the way.

THIS IS by no means to be con-
strued as a feud with the Daily
Iowan. But some of the things that
the Iowan's sports editor, Bill Buck-
ley, printed last week deserve to be
commented upon.
Victim of some sort of a self-
styled persecution complex, Buck-
ley writes: "The fact that the
Hawkeyes were neglected in the
all-conference selections by the
coaches hurt us pretty deeply, be-
cause we've seen all the Confer-
ence teams in action except Ohio
State and Northwestern, and don't
see how some of the stars that did
make it, got ahead of our boys .. .
Game in and game out, we've seen
Iowa shoved aside by critics and
writers; even foreign athletic de-
partments, as a worn-out dishrag
for which rich folks have no use."
THEN BUCKLEY in retaliation goes
on to present his all-conference
lineup of the year on the basis of
press box accommodations and ath-
letic department attitudes. Here he
writes under the heading of "Best
all-around press box accommoda-
"Nobody . . of all the stadiums
we've seen, we still can't find one
to compare with Iowa's which af-
fords a maximum of visibility,
comfort and care . . . Perhaps if
Minnesota and Michigan would
spend less money on players and
more on the stadium, both specta-
tors and scribes would be happy."
THUS by the simple expedient of
one thoughtless sentence, every-
one is automatcally classed as out of
step except Bill Buckley. For Michi-
gan's press box has often led the na-
tion in the annual sports writers' poll,.
and never has dropped below the first
five in national ranking.
Then under the heading of
"Worst all-around press box ac-
commodations," Buckley writes:
Varsity Iraek
Squad Pleases
Coach In Drills

"TIE between Michigan and Illinois
. . . At Michigan you can't see
one end of the field because the glass
reflects the opposite end, and the
boys stuff you so full of food you
can't enjoy the game . . . Illinois
Memorial Stadium, a towering sky-
scraper with a little cap per.ched on
top of its head for a press box, offers
cold coffee and a 30-mile an hour
breeze through an unheated atmos-
In this paragraph Bill strikes out,
then hits a home run. If getting
free food is a hardship, I hope I
have to undergo it three times a day
the rest of my life. He's right on
Illinois, though. But if Buckley's
repertorial dignity was ruffled by
the Illinois situation, he would cer-
tainly have forsworn the writing
game at first peek at the Columbia
coop. The Lions should get N
pretty good trade-in value if they
swapped it for Ann Arbor High
AND WHILE thin Iowa subject is
st!ll hot, we might quote a story
from the Iowan to the effect that
"The Hawkeye grid team fell just 11
points short of doubling its victories
for the campaign . . ..
Michigan can mbre than match
this dubious claim to grid fame.
With 11 more points, at strategic-
ally chosen points, the Wolverines
could have been national football
champions for the past two years.
Assume, for instance, that Michi-
gan had scored two more points
a ainst Minnesota.last year, win-
'n ng that battle, 8-7. They would
have been undisputed national
title-holders. To duplicate the
performance this year, all *they
needed were eight points more in
the Gopher tilt and oife in the
Ohio State clash. Eleven points
and two national championships.

(Special to The Daily)
Taking first place in all but two
events. Mchigan's touring swimming
team swept aside the Olneyville All-
Stars here tonight by a score of 55
to 21 in a sluggish display of their
championship might.
Although Johnny Higgins, former
Ohio State breaststroke star, failed
to put in his much publicized appear-
ance, the Olneyville aggregation came
up with a comparative newcomer to
big time swimming, one Joe Jodka of
Massachusetts State College, who
edged out the Maize and Blue na-
tional breaststroke king, Jim Skin-
ner. Jodka covered the 200 yard dis-
tance in the time of 2:28.8 to nose
out the Wolverine ace. The defeat
broke a long string of victories for
Skinner who holds the Big Ten Na-
tional Collegiate, and National AAU
titles, and marked the biggest sur-
prise of the Eastern trip.
The other race dropped by Coach
Matt Mann's mermen was the 150
yard backstroke. -Ed Niski, of the

national mark, to beat Michigan's

Despite their easy victory, the Ann
Arbor crew's winning times were far
behind their usual performances. This
can be explained by the fact that ex-
cept for the two events won by the
Olneyville entry the Michigan tank-
ers were never pushed in -any race
and were able to coast in.
The Wolverine 300 yard medley re-
lay team composed of Dick Riedl,
John Sharemet and Capt. Dobby Bur-
ton, swam to a 3:2.4 win to open the
meet. In the next event, the 200
yard freestyle, Jack Patten finished
in 2:18.3 to take first place, while
Tommy Williams garnered third place
markers for Matt Mann's lads.
Sophomore Lew Kivi nosed out
teammate Bob West in the 60 yard
freestyle, and Strother T-Bone Mar-
tin copped first place in the ding
with 107.32 points. West again fin.-
ished second to a fellow Wolverine,
this time to Gus Sharemet in the
100 yard freestyle. Patten and Perry
TryttoAi ended up one-two in the
140 freestyle, and Michigan's 400 yar
'elay team of Burtsn, Gus Share-
met, Williams and Kivi topped off
the meet with an easy triumph over
the Olneyville entry.

Strother "T-Bone Martin, who
set a new Amherst pool diving rec-
ord Friday afternoon, continued his
winning ways last night. He took
one of the Michigan team's seven
first places by winning the diving
event against the Olneyville All-

With one eye on the opening in-
door Big Ten meet Feb. 14, and the
other on the condition of his squad,.
Varsity Coach Ken Doherty put the
Michigan trackmen through the first
time trials of the season yesterday
afternoon at Yost Field House.
Although some of the times turned
in by the distance men, sprinters and
hurdlers were creditable, the pressure
was not turned on under-orders fiom
Doherty, "I kept them under wraps
to see what effect the conditioning
of the past month has had," he poin-
ted out.
Doherty, however, was pleased with
the showing of the squad as a whole
and reported that the performances
indicated a well-balanced team for
the 1942 indoor campaign. "The
squad is thinner than usual in several
events," he added.
First official time trials are set for
Saturday afternoon at the Field
House when the pressure will be on
for the first time. The important
pre-holiday trials are slated for, Sat-
urday, Dec. 13, outcome of which will
give Doherty an indication of what to
expect from the squad during the
indoor campaign.
Wolverine fans will have their first
chaice to watch Captain Al Piel and
his mates in action Feb. 20 in the dual
meet at the Field House.

gestion concerning the Ohio State
grid trophy problem: "The football
used in last Saturday's game is, in
view of the tie score, and especially
because of the scrap at game's close
to secure possession of same, a NA-
TURAL. Why not, hereafter, have
possession of the ball turned over to
the winner of the game.'
