Wolverines Win Second Game in Row;
Ted Berce Paces Team with 12 Points
By BILL MULLENDORE
Michigan's basketball team made
it two wins in as many evenings last
night by trouncing a badly outclassed
Central Michigan quintet, 39-27, in a
dull, listless contest marked by loose
ball-handling and poor shooting.
The Wolverines jumped into an
early lead on quick baskets by Keith
Harder and Ted Berce, starting for-
wards, and were never headed there-
after. Central strove valiantly to
make up the ever-widening Michigan
margin but fell farther behind as the
game progressed and failed to make
a serious threat.
Michigan held a half-time margin
of 17-9, thanks largely to the one-
handed shots of Berce, who account-
ed for six of the 17 points as well as
turning in a fine floor game. Harder
dumped in two baskets and a free
throw during the first period.
Michigan Protects Lead
The second half was almost a rep-
etition of the first as Michigan count-
ed three times before the Chippewas
could set themselves, to increasetheir
lead to 22-9. Central put on a be-
lated drive at this point to pull
within eight points of the Wolverines,
but the threat was quickly erased as
Walt Kell connected for two baskets
and Bill Gregor added another.
With three minutes remaining to
be played, the Chippewas again put
on a spurt to make the score 34-26,
two tallies by Berce and Don Lind-
quist thwarted this dying bid.
Berce Tops Team
Berce lead the Wolverines in scor-
ing with 12 points on five baskets
and a pair of free throws. Kell,
who played a commendable defen-
sive game, finished second in the race
for scoring honors with 10.
Forward Joe Lozier of Jackson
High football fame paced the Chip-
pewa attack with three field goals
and as many charity tosses for nine'
tallies. Ed. Bahlow, guard, followed
with six markers.
Assistant Basketball Coach Bill
Barclay, who is handling the Michi-
gan squad until Head Coach Ben
Oosterbaan is relieved of his football
duties as end coach, was disappointed
over the showing of his charges in
their first home game. "We played
a good game against Romulus last
night," he commented, "but we didn't
do nearly as well tonight. The ball
handling wasn't very good."
Michigan's next opponent is West-j
ern Michigan, which will move into
Ann Arbor for a single game Satur-
day night. The Wolverines dropped
two decisions to the Broncos last

NEW YORK, NOV. 25-New Year's
Day bowl fixtures began to fill up
today as Ohio State, Teinessee,
Southern California, Texas , Christ-
ian and Oklahoma Aggies rolled up
important victories on the last full
Saturday of the 1944 football cam-
Ohio State teetered on the brink
of its first defeat before getting up
off the floor to whip Micigan, 18-14,
to the delight of 71,958 fans at Col-
umbus, copping the Big Ten title
and finishing its first perfect season
since 1920 with nine straight victo-
If the Western Conference gives
the go-ahead of a special meeting to-
morrow, the Buckeyes probably will
go on to Pasadena for a Jan. 1 date
with Southern California which as-
sured itself of the Pacific crown by
downing U. C. L. A., 40-13 before
90,019, the seasons largest crowd.
Tennessee, understood to be in line
for the West Coast bid if the Ohio
lads do not go, completed an un-
beaten season by trouncing Ken-
tucky, 21-7. The Vols were tied 0-0
by Alabama in mid-season.
After smothering Oklahoma, 28-6,
the Oklahoma Aggies received a cot-
ton Bowl invitation to oppose Texas
Christian, which captured the South-
west Conference championship by
shading Rice, 9-6.
Georgia Tech, assured of an Or-
ange Bowl berth, fell before the re-
juvenated Notre Dame Irishmen,
21-0, and Tulsa, its Miami opponent,
was idle after flattening Arkansas
Upset of the Day
The No.- 1 upset of the day was
Mississippi's 13-8 margin over fav-
ored Mississippi State which played
without the full time services of its
star, Tom McWilliams.
Both Army and Navy were idle
before their "Battle of the decade"
at Baltimore next Saturday.
To Go Overseas
MADISON, WIS., NOV. 25-()-
The University of Wisconsin' Board
of Regents today granted a four-
month leave of absence to Harry A.
Stuhldreher, Athletic Director.
Stuhldreher had been asked by the
Special Service Division of the War
Department to accompany a delega-
tion of athletic specialists overseas to
demonstrate and assist in the promo-
tion of sports among servicemen.
While it has not been determined
definitely whether Stuhldreher can
take time off from his duties, he will
make the trip if possible, President
Clarence A. Dykstra said.
Yes, it would be a
good idea to get
CARDS early .
while our selection
is at its best.

attack fell apart. Michigan was
forced to punt with Ohio taking
possession on its own 44.
Two running plays failed, but Dick
Flanagan broke loose on third down
and caromed down to Michigan's 35.
Derricotte was injured on the tackle
and had to retire for the remainder
of the game. The Bucks then let
loose with their fireworks, and Cline
.finally went over from the one yard
stripe. It took Ohio three plays to
cover that last precious yard. Jack
Dugger's try for the extra point was
blocked by Michigan's center, Harold

register any appreciable gains. With

Trojans Receive Rose
Bowl Bid as Reward
LOS ANGELES, NOV. 25-(/P)-The
biggest football crowd of the year,
90,019, saw Southern California
smother UCLA, 40-13, today and be-
come the Western nominee for the
Rose Bowl against either Ohio State
The undefeated Trojans closed
their season with a brilliant per-
formance. They scored in every per-
iod against the team that tied them
last September. They had the best
of it in the line and their backs, Jim
Hardy, Duane Whitehead, Bobby
Morris, Don Garlin, George Calla-
nan and Don Burnside, gained re-
peatedly on delayed bucks. This one
play was unstoppable. The Bruins
never solved it.
Southern California, one of the
nation's top passing teams, took to
the air occasionally, but never of
necessity. Coach Jeff Cravath's line
seemed always able to clear a path
for the ball carrier and the backs
darted inside the guards and off the
tackles for one long gain after an-
After piling up three touchdowns
in the first half, the Trojans really
went to work in the third period.
They took advantage of Bruin mis-
cues and every break of the game
went in their favor except a penalty
for pass interference, called on them
three minutes before the final gun.
EAST LANSING, MICH., NOV. 25
-(AP)-Led by Fred Feiler, Drake Uni-
versity's cross-country team made
a 1-2-3 finish of the Sixth annual
N. C. A. A. championship here today,
winning the team title with a 25-
point total, lowest in the history of
Lowest previous winning total was
the 51 scored in 1938, first year of
the meet, by Indiana University,

a slight wind, toured the four-mile

minutes, 4.7 seconds, and was follow-

Ona reverse, Chubb made it a
first down on the Buckeye 12. Chubb

Ohio Regains Lead
Ohio jumped back into the lead
early in the third frame, when Apple-
by recovered Chubb's fumble on
Michigan's 23 yard line. The Wol-
verine forward wall made a deter-
mined goal-line stand, but Horvath
finally broke through from the one
The ball changed hands quickly in
the next series of plays and after
Johnny Lintol recovered an Ohio
fumble on Michigan's 25, Matt
Brown, Buckeye fullback, stole theI
pigskin from Ponsetto and Ohio had-
a first down on the Michigan 20.
Ohio made only three yards in four
tries and Michigan took over on its
own 17 yard line. At this juncture,
the Wolverines made the longest sus-
tained drive of the game, as they
covered 83 yards in 19 plays, with
Culligan scoring his second touch-
down from the one inch line.
The crucial play of this march
occurred when with third down and
eight to go on Ohio's 44, Culligan
faked a run and then threw a pass
to Ponsetto who grabbed the pigskin
with his outstretched arms, giving
the Wolverines a first down on the
Ohio 17. Culligan, in five running
plays, covered the remaining 17
With eight minutes still left in the
game and Michigan ahead, 14-12, a
poor kickoff backfired on the Wol-
verines and Ohio took possession of
the ball on its 49 yard line. Brugge,
Horvath and Flanagan all took turns
at denting the Michigan forward
wall and in 14 plays this trio had
accounted for 51 of the 54 yards in
this climactic touchdown assault.
A Michigan pass was intercepted
by Flanagan with two minutes to go
and the Wolverines' last bid for vic-
tory had slipped from their grasp.
