NEW YORK-(IP)-Notre Damet
so completely dominates the top 101
college football ratings that even
losing to the Irish moves a club up'
the ladder.
Michigan State, a shadowy
tenth last week, hopped to eighth
in the sixth weekly Associated
Press rundown in which 141 sports
writers and sportscasters partici-
pated.
* * *
THERE WERE no shakeups in
the ratings with Notre Dame still
way out front on 137 of the 163
first place votes. That amounts
to roughly 84 per cent of the bal-
lots, about the same as it has been
running for weeks. The Irish tookt

over the lead from Michigan on
the second week of the pool, and
opened up a wide gap in the third
week.
Back of Notre Dame, it's
Army, Oklahoma, California and
Michigan in that order, just the
same as last week. Cornell
moved up a step to sixth and
Rice advanced from eighth to
seventh.
Notre Dame apparently lost lit-
tle prestige in yielding three touch-
downsto Michigan State, two in
the final minutes. Instead the
voters figured the Spartan tougher
than expected because they held
the Irish to a 34-21 victory.
THE BATTLE of West Point in
which Army ruined Fordham's
perfect record, 35-0, in a savage
roughhouse drew 13 first place
votes for the Cadets.
Nine experts tabbed Okla-
homa as the No. 1 team but they
wound up third despite a 39-0
rout of Kansas State. The Soon-
ers face their big test Saturday
in strong Missouri.
Once again California held
fourth place with three first place
votes after drubbing Washington
State, 33-14. They play Oregon
Saturday.
It's a big drop to Michigan with
605 points. The Wolverines sub-
dued Purdue, 20-12, to move a
step closer to the Big Ten title.
The total vote with points fig-
ured on a 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1
basis (first place votes in paren-
thesis)

Snead Rates
Top Mention
In PGA Poll
CHICAGO - UP) - Slammin'
Sammy Snead, who barely missed
scoring a grand title slam, was
selected the Golfer of the Year
in a nation-wide poll conducted
by the Professional Golfers' Asso-
ciation of America.
Snead's selection was announ-
ced yesterday by George Schneit-
er, manager of the P.G.A. tourna-
ment bureau.
RUNNER-UP TO SNEAD in the
poll conducted among sports writ-
ers and sportscasters was the man
who beat him out of golf's most
coveted crown, National Open
The All-Campus Cross Coun-
try meet will be held at 5:15
Thursday at Ferry Field. The
meet is open to all Michigan
students.
-Earl Riskey
Champion Cary Middlecoff. Third
was Johnny Palmer, also third in
cash-collecting behind Snead and
Middlecoff.
The National Open title elud-
ed Snead but he copped the Mas-
ters, the J.G.A., and Western
Open championships. Among his
six tournament victories to date,
Snead finished in a tie for third
or better in eight other meets,
including a second-spot dead-
lock in the National Open here
last June.
With still the Miami Open (Dec.
8-11) to be reckoned in official
P.G.A. money - winning for the
year, Snead has a top grab of $30,-
893, followed by Middlecoff with
$24,604.
* *a
FOR 69 ROUNDS of tourney
play, Snead has an impressive av-
erage of 69.49 strokes per round.
Middlecoff's average is 69.92.
Ben Hogan, 1948 Golfer of the
Year, received mention again
this year although he was side-
lined by a serious highway acci-
dent.
Jayvees Bet
Frosh_24-18
Future Wolverine greats clashed
on Ferry Field yesterday afternoon
as the Jayvees outblasted a rugged
Frosh elevenA 24-18.
Coach Wally Weber, pilot of the
Freshman team, was enthusiastic
over his charges as he lauded their
form, spirit, courage, determina-
tion and morale.
UNDER THE quarterbacking of
Jerry Burns, the Jayvees utilized
the air lanes to cinch the game
with a one touchdown margin.
Fred Pickard scored twice on
pass plays with Burns and Bob
Vandenberg providing the suc-
cessful tosses. Vandenberg also
scored on a pass which was
thrown by Jim Eldridge who in
turn grabbed the fourth marker
by going overland.
A buck lateral play gave the

Frosh their first score as Dave Hill
carried the ball into the end zone.
Another power play executed by
Roger Zatkoff provided the second
Freshman tally while a pass from
Bill Billings to Carl Brunsting
notched the final touchdown for
the Webermen.
Particularly outstanding for the
Freshman team were the two line
backers, Ed Tupper and Zatkoff.
Noticeable in the line play were
Dick Strozewski, Emil Morelock
and Stan King.
Mark Scarr handled the signal
calling for the Frosh.
