Track men donit usually think
of food when they are running.
But it was a different story yes-
terday as the first ten varsity and
freshman distance men to cover a
one and two-thirds mile cross
c'ountry course were awarded the
right to attend a, turkey dinner
in their honor.
Footing the bill Monday night
at the Union will be local track en-
thusiast Phil Diamoud. The feast
will honor Bob Thomason, Justin
Williams, Garth Kirkendall, Shel
Capp, Bruce Vreelhnd, Ted Bird-
sall, Don McEwen, Aaron Gordon,
Ron Packer and Don. Cooper.
These ten men were the first to
cross that finish line in Wednes-
day's season clincher on the Uni-
versity Golf course.
As Thomason set a new record
of 7:32.8 for the distance, the
runners concluded two and a half
month's work on the hill and dale
By MURRAY GRANT ... Daily Sports Editor
As we go into our last week of prognosticating, our own private
shaky limb is on its last legs, but there is one consolation-Navy
doesn't play this week.
Our average dropped a few points last week as we called
six out of nine on the nose, including the upset win Ohio State
scored over Illinois. We've picked 54 right out of 75 for a season's
record of .720, with ten more coming up now.
MICHIGAN-OHIO STATE-Michigan is loaded with buckshot
for the Buckeyes and they plan to use every bit of their ammunition
tomorrow. They have that first place rating to hold and Notre Dame
will rave two more games after Michigan has completed its season.
The town of Columbus is going wild right now, but after our Wol-
verines make mince meat of the Buckeyes the town will look like
a western ghost town. Michigan to. pour it on, over and around the
e * e
ILLINOIS-NORTHWESTERN-This is another top scrap of the
day. The question is, "Have the Wildcats saved enough after their
great battle with a certain South Bend team?" Our guess is that the
Rose Bowl is on their finger-tips and Illinois isn't going to stand in
their way. Northwestern, by a substantial margin.
PURDUE-INDIANA-Ths game will decide only one thing-
which team will retain the traditional Old Oaken Bucket. Both
Purdue and Indiana are working toward dismal seasons. A win
in this traditional brawl will add some prestige, but not much
else. Not much to choose from, but we'll stick with Purdue since
they are 14 points better than Indiana by comparative scores with
MINNESOTA-WISCONSIN-This will add injuries to insult as
the Gophers make their last vain attempt to get to Pasadena. The
Badgers will also make a vain attempt, but they haven't got enough
to win. I'll bet Harry Stuhldreher is thankful the season ends with
this one. Now all he has to worry about is whether or not he'll have
a job next year. Minnesota in a breeze.
10WA-BOSTON UNIVERSITY- The Terries from Boston are
trying to get into the big time, but they're also biting off more than
they can chew.. Iowa isn't the greatest team in the Big Nine, but
they have more than enough to tame the Terriers.
SMU-BAYLOR-The Mustangs are headed for the Cotton
Bowl, but Baylor has upset in their eyes. Maybe it's only some
southwestern dust as Doak Walker et al have more than. Baylor
can take. SMU continues down victory trail.
*. * * *
DARTMOUTH-PRINCETON-This should be the game of the
day in the East. Both teams have good ground attacks, but the Tigers,
are weak on pass defense, while the Indians also possess a strong aerial
attack. On that basis we'll pick Dartmouth.
HARVARD-YALE-The "do-or-die" struggle that is as old as foot-
ball comes up for another test tomorrow. Neither team has put
together a great season, but winning this one always makes a bad
season look lots better. We'll take Yale in an upset.
NORTH CAROLINA-DUKE-Another Bowl-bound team takes
on a traditional foe. The Tarheels have Justice and that should
be enough. Choo-Choo Charley seems to have been given the
title of the best back in the country, and North Carolina's record
bares out that premise. The Tarheels should twist the Blue Devil's
PENN STATE-PITT-The Panthers have been winning with a
strange consistency, but the Nittany Lions are one of the nation's
best. Pitt would like to add this one to their string, but their desires
can't overcome the strength Penn State has. -Penn State should take
this one for their second straight undefeated season.
