Alert Defense Deciding Factor in Triumph
With Both Teams Scoreless in Last Half
By DICK KRAUS
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Nov. 1-Michigan did it the hard way, but they
did it convincingly, whipping a tough Illinois eleven 14-7, after spot-
ting the Fighting Illini all the breaks in a bruising see-saw battle be-
fore 71,119 homecoming fans at Memorial Stadium.
With two lightening-like scoring thrusts, they did their offensive
duty for the day, and then turned in a brilliant second half de-

ALLEY INTO TOUCHDOWN LA1E-Little Hank Fonde driving for the Wolverines' winning touch-
down against the Illini. The 165-pounder, blasting like a fullback, bolted through this huge hole
provided by the Michigan forward wall. Dike Edelman, hllini linebacker met Fonde head on, but the
Tennessee lad's momentum knocked the burly Eddelman out of paydirt territory.

(Special to The Daily)
Sunless Champaign, invaded by
5,000 Michigan students and al-
umni was the victim of a many-
pronged infiltration as three spe-
cial trains and a horde of Wolver-
ine motorists poured into Memor-
ial Stadium for the Big Nine's
battle of the giants.
The student special, complete
with obsolete coach cars, joyous
old-grads, and an ex-Army kit-
chen car, converted into a short-
order bar, breezed into Champaign
at 12 noon Central Standard Time.
Train Activities

Illinois cheer leaders brought
home the fact that the Wolverines
were in foreign territory in a pre-
game parade. Two of them carried
a home made banner which said,
"too bad Crisler's on the Fritz."
Illinois' huge, 175-piece band,
clad on the brightest orange and
black, presented pre-game anjd
half-time programs.
Half-time festivities consisted
of saluting Homecoming queens
chosen from the University of Illi-
nois to represent each of the Big
Nine schools.

fensively to move a step closer to a
It was Bump Elliott of Bloom-
ington, Ill., who spread gloom
over his home state. Late in the
first quarter he took a Dike Ed-
dleman punt on his own 26-yard
line near the west sideline. Gene
Derricotte swept over from the
other safety spot, threw a block
and the "Bumper" was off to the
races. Bob Mann and Dick Rif -
enburg helped with key blocks
and Elliott hugged the sidelines
outrunning everyone. Jim Bries-
ke converted and Michigan led
7-0.
Moments later Illinois tied it up
and the Wolverines struck again.
Beginning on their own 21 yard
line, they rolled up two first downs
then Bob Chappuis faded, flipped
a 15-yard pass to Bump who
gathered it in on the Illinois 44,
and sprinted to the four yard
line. A penalty moved it back to
the nine, then little Hank Fonde,
imitating a toy bull, off the re-
verse ran over the Illinois line
backers to score. Brieske made it
14-7.
That was the ball game as far
as the scoreboard was concerned,
but Lenny Ford and a much mal-
igned Michigan defensive line
continually nullified Illinois
breaks with brilliant play in the
second half. With six minutes
left to play in the ball game, Il-
linois tackle Bob Pymuski fell
on aMichigan fumble on the Wol-
verine 23. Big Russ Steger, the
whole Illinois attack this after-
noon, blasted for four yards, then
Chick Maggioli picked up one,
then Steger again for 3 to the 15.
With fourth down and one to go
Steger hit center again and met
a stone wall. That was the ball
game as far as the Illini were
concerned.
Twice before Illinois failed to
capitalize on golden scoring op-
portunities. On the second play of
the game, Tom Stewart intercept-
ed Bob Chappuis' pass on the
Wolverine 45 and brought it back
to the 27. After two plays Steger
fumbled and Dan Dworsky re-
covered on the Michigan 21.
Again in the second period af-
ter a drive had brought the ball
inside the Michigan 30, Bump El-
liott speared a Perry Moss pass on
the 8-yard line. On the next play
Jack Weisenburger cut loose for
32 yards and that threat was
ended.
A desperation passing drive in
the dying minutes of the game
faded when Bump Elliott inter-
cepted another Moss pass to make
it official.
Steger Dives for TD
The lone Illinois touchdown
came after a 53 yard run by Ste-
ger had set it up. He broke over
his own right guard, cut into the
clear and hightailed it to the
Michigan 15 where Pete Elliott
hauled him down from behind. A
Moss to Duffelmeier pass was
good for nine yards. A Michigan
offside took it to the one and
Steger dived over. Don Maechtle
converted.

enburger, suffering from a slight
injury was relieved of his kick-
ing chores by Wally Teninga and
Chappuis. Teninga came through
with an against the wind boot in
the clutch to stave off the late
passing rush of Moss. Booting
from his own 26, he drove a low
punt down to the Illinois 25, where
Eddleman, taking the ball on a
reverse from Maggioli, was cut
down by Rifenburg to keep the
Illini at bay.
It was the running attack of
the Wolverines which kept them
out of their own back yard. Time
and again on short line jabs, with
Chappuis doing workhorse duty,
Michigan drove up over midfield.
But this was not the Wolverines
high scoring day.
Once it was a fumble on the
Illini 14, again a beautiful Chap-
puis to Bob Mann pass, good on
the Illini 22 yard line, that were
nullified and Michigan penalized
15 yards for offensive interfer-
ence. Another fumble and an Il-
lini pass interception nipped other
drives in the bud.
Passing Even
The much heralded Moss -
Chappuis passing duel was pret-
ty nearly a draw. But Michigan
didn't take to the airways very
frequently. Moss tried 18 tosses
and made good on eight, but
most of them were short screen
passes. Chappuis had two com-
pleted passes nullified. He pitched
seven and three were good for 73
yards as against 70 yards for Moss.
Fonde had the best running av-
erage with six yards for three
carries.. Steger and Weisenburger
were next, with 5.7 and 5.0 aver-
ages. Two long-losses dropped
Chappuis' average to 3.5, but
Bump Elliott and Gene Derricotte
each picked up 4.4 per try.
Chappuis was the day's leader
in total offense with 146 yards as
against Steger's 105.

TOUCHDOWN EXPRESS-Bump. Elliott, flashy Wolverine halfacl, high-balls his way through a
maze of Illinois players and heads for touchdown territory after taking a punt from Eddelman.
