HE WAS said to have advised

'U' Student Tries,
21st Straight Win
'M' Defense Stops Navy Attack;
Ortmann, Koceski, Rifenburg Star
By MURRAY GRANT
(Daily Sports Editor)
Michigan's high-flying Wolverines racked up their 21st straight
victory yesterday as they scored in every period to hand Navy their
seventh straight loss by a 35-0 margin.
Defensively the Wolverines were never better. Only three times
did Navy penetrate into Michigan territory and the farthest they ever
got was the Michigan 37-yard line. It was the first time this season
that the Middies have been held scoreless.
THE MAIZE AND BLUE forward wall was again miserly when it
came to giving up yardage as the Middies picked up only 73 yards for
the day. And pass defense, which has been weak this season, became
the strong point of yesterday's game.
The Middies completed only four passes out of 15 attempts
for a meager 46 yards and the Wolverines came up with two very
It was Michigan's K.O. punch that stole individual honors as the
two great sophomores Leo Koceski and Chuck Ortmann had the Mid-
dies guessing all afternoon.
KOCESKI AVERAGED 6.6 yards per try as he cut inside the tac-
and skirted the ends to spread the Navy defense wide open. It

Oosterbaan started clearing his bench at the start of the final

ATHENS-Prime Minister Themistokles Sophoulis said tonight his
coalition Greek government will resign Monday.

action to await the return from Paris of Foreign Minister Con-
stantin Tsaldaris. Now he has sent a message to Tsaldaris asking

PARIS-Russia's Andrei Y. Vishinsky charged today that Greece,
with the k(nowledge of the United States and Britain, is preparing
to hurl poison gas at Greek guerrillas.
This was part of a general blast at the United States in which
the Soviet deputy foreign minister charged the Truman adminis-
tration is building a network of military bases directed against
the Soviet Union and other countries. He did not amplify or
support with evidence his charge concerning poison gas.
WASHINGTON-Defense Secretary James Forrestal's cwn words
today indicated that he may leave the cabinet.
Forrestal, who has been in government service for eight years
and who has headed the defense establishment since Sept. 1947,
was asked by photographers at the White House to pose with
Navy Secretary John I. Sullivan. A photographer, referring to the
new term for the Truman administration, said "we are starting
another four years."
"But not for me," Forrestal interjected, laughing.
MOSCOW-Soviet Foreign Minister Molotov said last night
the American people had rejected a program of aggression and
reaction by defeating the Republicans in Tuesday's election.
But despite this expression from the people, Molotov said, the
.'ruling circles" in the United States and other Western countries are
preparing new aggressions and the "unleashing of new wars."
Molotov spoke before an audience of Soviet leaders in Moscow's
Bolshoi Theatre on the eve of the 31st anniversary of the Russian

Ortmann carried the ball for 83 yards and passed for an
additional 90 as he scored his first touchdown of the season and
heaved a 60-yard aerial for the final marker.
It was Ortmann, who almost single-handedly accounted for the
first Michigan score. Starting on the Middie 47 the Wolverines moved
all the way the first time they got their hands on the ball.
ORTMANN'S AERIAL TO DICK RIFENBURG on the Navy 26,
which was ruled complete because of interference, started the Wol-
verines on their way. Two plays later he passed to Ed McNeill on the
15 and, after Koceski had twisted his way to the 10, the lanky sopho-
more cut through tackle to the Navy two.
knifed through for his first collegiate touchdown.
Tom Peterson got to the one-foot line and then Ortmann.k
The second Maize and Blue score came at exactly the same
time in the second period. Again it was short effective burst that
counted as the Wolverine backs hammered at the Middie line.
THIS TIME MICHIGAN WENT 78 yards to paydirt as Peterson
ate up 45 yards on his own. He carried 8 and then 6 yards to put
the ball on the Michigan 36 and then he took over on the Navy 44
and slithered through a host of Middie tacklers all the way to the
24. Four plays later with the ball on the 10 he took off around
right end and went all the way to the Promised Land.
Harry Allis made the second of five straight conversions and
the Wolverines led, 14-0. From then on it was a punting duel
between Walt Teninga and Reaves Baysinger with penalties
being thrown in liberally.
It took Michigan only three plays to score their third touchdown
as Dick "Killer" Kempthorn recovered a Navy fumble on the Middle
25 shortly after the third period got under way. It was Koceski's
turn this time as he cut through the Navy line and got all' the way
to the 5-yard stripe before he was stopped.
TENINGA THEN CAME IN and in two tries at the Navy line he
had racked up the 20th Wolverine point. Allis again converted and
Michigan led, 21-0.
A few minutes later Michigan was knocking at the door
again. Teninga intercepted a Baysinger aerial on the Michigan
35 and twisted his back back to the Navy 20-yard marker.
Ortmann picked up six yards and then he knifed through the
Middies to the 8-yard stripe. But the Wolverine attack bogged down
and Navy took over on their own three.
THEY GOT NOWHERE and Gene Derricotte returned the Navy
punt to the Michigan 41. Peterson carried for 19 yards and then
Ortmann passed to Allis for 12 more. Ortmann picked up nine more
on a slant off tackle and Bob Van Summern hurled an 18 yard aerial
to Rifenburg in the end zone for the fourth marker.
Allis continued to bring back memories of Jim Brieske as he
converted for the fourth time.
The next time the Wolverines got their hands on the ball it
was all over and subs began to pour in. They took a Baysinger punt
on the Michigan 14 and began to move. It was all Ortmann again
as he ran twice for 7 and 21 yards to put the ball on the Michigan
THEN WITH the wind to his back he faded to the Michigan
30 and heaved a tremendous 60 yard aerial to Dick Rifenburg on the
Navy 5. The big end just gathered in the pass with no one near him
and stepped across the final chalk stripe for touchdown number five.
Allis' educated toe made it 35-0, just one point better than
the score Notre Dame triumphed by last week.
