Third Plaee in National Poll

Late Seahawk Pass Is Good

Notre Dame, Seahawks
Hold Two TopPlaces

NEW YORK, Nov. 22 -(XI)- Notre
Dame defeated Iowa Pre-Flight Sat-
urday in what Coach Frank Leahy
called the greatest game of his coach-
ing career, but the Irish lost caste
with the football experts who voted
in the weekly Associated Press poll
to determine the country's ranking
Unanimous first-place choice two
weeks ago and with only three of the
voters ranking them below that gild-
ed spot last week, the Irish this week
lost five first place tallies and were
listed as far back as third by one
sports writer.
Ninety-seven of the 102 tickets,
however, agreed that the present
Notre Dame team, chugging along
with a winning streak of nine games
this season, was the best. One voter
marked his ballot for the Iowa Sea-
hawks, two of them regarded Duke
as the premier outfit and two others
gave the distinction to Colorado Col-
lege, unbeaten Rocky Mountain king.
The Seahawks, second a week ago,
retained that post despite their loss
and even increased their voting ag-
gregate. Notre Dame piled up 1;014
votes and the Seahawks 821 in the
compilation which awards 10 points
for each first place vote, nine for
second, etc.
Purdue, which struggled to a 7-to-0
verdict over Indiana, skidded from
third to fourth and Michigan moved
from fourth to third. As the Mid-
west retained its strangle-hold on the'
first half of the table. The two Big
Ten clubs tied for their loop title.
Duke is fifth, with Navy and Army,
opponents this Saturday in the an-
nual service clash, - following in that
order. Next comes Northwestern,

March Field and Del Monte Pre-
Flight, the latter replacing Texas.
Of Notre Dame's nine victims, five
are listed among the top ten teams
while Georgia Tech, polished off by
a 55-to-13 score on Oct. 2, is four-
teenth. Great Lakes, final Notre
Dame foe of the campaign, is the
21st team.
Dartmouth, beaten only by a single
point in an early game with Pennsyl-
vania, jumped from 20th place to
13th to create the greatest furore
among the second grouping.

Out for Cage Squad


Michigan's basketball stock took a
turn for the better today with the.
arrival of twelve new men from the
Varsity football team.
Heading the new candidates was
Don Lund, a' letter winner from last
year'8-team. Also included were Tom
Cook, Fenwick Crane, and Vince
Mroz from Michigan State, Ben Hill-
ner, frosh end from Indianapolis,
Bob Hanzlik, Johnny Gallagher and
Farnum Johnson of Wisconsin. Rex
Wells, Idaho State College and Howie
Wikel and Joe Ponsetto, two Michi-
gan men, completed the roster.
However, the presence of these
new arrivals didn't affect the boys
who have been practicing diligently
for the last month. Coach Bennie
Oosterbaan and assistant coach Bill
Barclay again ran the team through
another hard scrimmage. This time
the squad was divided into two
teams, the whites and reds, and they
paired off against each other in a
thirty minute tussle.
Whites Win
The Whites, who won the practice
tilt, 15 to 12, had Bob Caspari and
Tom King at forwards, Dick Shrider
and John Leddy, guards, and at cen-
ter Bill Oren. Tom King and Dick
Shrider accounted for all of the
points, registering 8 and 7 markers
respectively. Both of these players
were helped considerably by the fine
passing of their teammates.
On the red squad were Bill Sey-
mour and Wayne Thompson at for-
wards, Dave Strack and Charlie Ket-
terer at guards and Tom Paton at
center. The red team's scoring was
evenly divided as Bill Seymour

grabbed high scoring honors with 5
points. Charlie Ketterer followed
with 3 markers while Dave Strack
and Tom Paton each chalked up a
basket to their credit.
Both Teams Ragged
Generally speaking, the play of
both teams was ragged. However, on
occasion the. boys came to life and
displayed some nicely executed man-
euvers. The defensive work on both
sides was good and very few of the
points came from within the free
throw line.
'This scrimmage again clearly
brought out the fact that Michigan
has two teams very equal in poteptial
strength. It is the purpose of these
scrimmages to see which five men
can operate together most efficiently
and now with the addition of these
new men, it will be even a harder
task to select a starting five.

Old Professor Hears Coaches Woes

NEW YORK, Nov. 22. -(P)- The
Old Professor was studying his ration
book as his Monday morning class of
football "coaches entered the room.
He seemed disappointed.
Old Professor- Hmm. I wanted to
buy myself a nice steak but I seem to
be just one point shy. Can anybody
help me out?
Lt. Don Fauret, Iowa Pre-Flight-
Not me, professor. If I had a point
I would have used it to get that tie
I wanted; with Notre Dame. Anyway,
Notre Dame has a great team and
deserved to win. I'mnsorry we couldn't
get the tie after playing the Irish to

a standstill. Frank Leahy has done,
a magnificient job and my hat is off
to him.
Frank Leahy, Notre Dame- The
performance of our team, when it
came from behind to defeat what I
believe to be a great team., convinced
me beyond doubt that it deserves to
be ranked of championship caliber.
When the going got tough, the boys
got tougher than I believed them, cap-
able. I'm mighty proud to be the
coach of such a fine group of Amer-
ican boys.
Old Professor- Take Mr. Leahy's
temperature, someone, quick. He

seems to be out of his head. I never
heard him talk that way before. And
his team still has a game to play yet.
Claude (Little Monk) Simons, Tu-
lane- Speaking of temperature, boy,
were we hot against L.S.U. Hotter'n
a firecracker. In other words, just
what I wanted for Christmas. Van-
Buren's poor condition undoubtedly
hurt L.S.U.
Bernie Moore, Louisiana State -
Yep, we've been invited to play in the
Orange Bowl. But we would have
swapped all the bowl bids for a vic-
tory over Tulane. We missed Van-
Buren, and, Tulane played a great
Old Professor -- Mr. Lookabaugh,
do you know what a passing fancy is?
Jim Lookabaugh, Oklahoma A. &
M. -- No sir, but I know what fancy
passing is. Those 81 forward passes,
60 by Arkansas, had me dizzy but
luckily the kiddies weren't as dizzy as
I was. We felt it was the most spec-
tacular game between the schools
since the series opened in 1912.
John (Bud) Tomlin, Arkansas-
Jim Lookabaugh has a rough team to
be so young. Our spread formation
passes clicked for 372 yards net but
we couldn't punch it over. Penalties
and officials' decisions cost us two
touchdowns. We're looking toward
Old Professor - Mr. Young, finish
this quotation: "To err is ... ',
Tom Young, North Carolina
Fatal, when you're playing against
Duke, and we made-a few. Our boys
played well, but Duke had just too
much, including reserves. Boy, was it
a hot day!
Eddie Cameron, Duke - It was one
of the hardest-fought -games we've
had, and we had to work all the way
to win. Milner, Gantt, Luper and
Balitsaris played well, in fact, the
entire squad did fine.
Harry Stuhldreher, Wisconsin --
Speaking of fight, I have the greatest
group of fighters I've ever seen. They
have scored no victories in so long
but you'd never know it by their play.'
Minnesota came back remarkably in
the last three weeks and showed it
against us.
Dr. George Hauser, Minnesota -
My boys used their heads today, and
they fought.- There were many times
when defeat could have stared us in
the face if the boys hadn't remained
calm and played smart football. Wis-
consin showed a lot of fight and gave
us all the battle we wanted.
