Northwestern Looks for Repeat of Last Year'

s Upset

Pancho Segura Reaches
Top in Pro Tennis World

When Francisco (Pancho) Se-
gura came up to the United States
from the tropic midlands of Ecua-
sdorin 1941, his native land en-
trusted him with almost as much
of a public relations job as that
of their ambassador.
And so far along the tennis trail
he's fulfilled the mission with
more alacrity than the latter non-
entity, who hasn't even gotten his
country a slice of the Marshall
The reason?
FROM POOR beginnings and a
childhood marred by an attack of
polio, Segura has risen to the
heights of professional tennis, to
the point where he's the official
number one among the play-for-
pay boys, and this season is chal-
lenging Big Jake Kramer for the
factual title.
His meteoric rise has, in a
sense, put Ecuador on the map
insofar as the United States is
concerned. Which is precisely
what his government wanted
him to do.
They sent him to the U.S. to go
to college at the University of Mi-
ami, and more important, to play
Hewon the National Collegiate
crown three times, in 1943, 1944,
and 1945.
HE ROSE TO near the top
among the amateur players, and
ranked in the same class with
Kramer, Ted Scroeder, and Fran-
kle Parker. He was seeded third
in the nation in those three top
collegiate years.



Last spring he won the Na-
tional Professional Champion-
shi. beatinr Kramer in the

snip, unsting rmE f*ittr u W
semi-finals, 6-4, 8-10, 1-6, 6-4,
6-3 in the semi-finals, and win-
ning from Frankie Kovacs in
the finals by default.
What makes Pancho run?
That's the question most fans
ask when the smiling little man
from South America walks on the
court to face the towering Kramer.
For the Ecuadorian court artist
is a spindly-legged, pigeon-toed,
slightly built man, standing only
five feet eight inches with his
thickest socks on.
THE FACT THAT he can with-
stand Kramer's most blistering
volleys, and come bouncing back
for more, stems partially from his
amazing speed-he's reputedly the
quickest man in' the pro game-
and his being a steady stroker with
an unorthodox and baffling style.
Pancho is one of the few rank-
ing players now active who uses
a two-handed style of play. Made
popular by Australia's Jack
Bromwich a decade, ago, the
two-handed form enables a lit-
tle guy like Segura to get the
utmost power out of his spare
He picked up the style while
still weak from the ravages of the
polio which afflicted him when
young. Story is that Segura was
too weak to swing the racquet in
a conventional manner, so he took
to flailing it about like a latter-
day Mel Ott, with surprisingly
good results.

AP Grid Poll;
Cadets Third
NEW YORK-(A')-In a surpris-
ing shakeup, Ohio State yesterday
moved in as the nation's No. 1 foot-
ball team as Army, last week's
leader, tumbled to third place be-
hind Oklahoma.
The fall of Army is the big news
in the weekly Associated Press poll.
The unbeaten Cadets, 51 to 0 win-
ners over little New Mexico Satur-
day, actually received the most
first place votes, 72. But Ohio
State and Oklahoma scored heavi-
ly on second and third place votes
to move up. The system gives 10
points for a first-place ballot, nine
for second and so on.

Bowl Hopes
In Balance
'M' Eager To Avenge
Startling_1949 Defeat
Don't look now, but that team
is here again.
The same band of Northwestern
Wildcats that derailed the Wolver-
ines last year is here to try again-
only this time under slightly dif-
ferent circumstances.
* * *
LAST SEASON Northwestern's
21-20 upset of Michigan ruined the
Wolverines' bid for their third un-
disputed W e s t e r n Conference
Championship. Michigan had to
settle for a share of the crown
with Ohio State.
This year Michigan is practi-
cally out of contention for the
Big Ten title, but still is fan-
ning a spark of hope for making
a trip to sunny Southern Cali-
fornia's Rose Bowl come New
Years Day.
A trip to the West Coast, how-
ever, means taking the measure of
both Northwestern and Ohio State,
coupled with an OSU victory over
Illinois this weekend.
AND NOW THAT everyone is
rating the Ohio State game as the
final word on Michigan's bowl
chances, the stage is set for the
Wildcats to repeat in their role
of spoilers in the Maize and Blue
gridiron picture.
Needless to say, Bennie Oos-
terbaan remembers what hap-
pened at Evanston last year. As
if it wasn't enough that the
Wildcats put the damper on
Michigan's undisputed title vi-
sion, the game also showed the
Wolverines at their football
The outcome of that ragged con-
test had a profound effect on Oos-
terbaan. It left in him the painful
sting of having to watch helpless-
All 'M' Club members are re-
quested to meet in the club-
rooms tonight at 7:30. Sweat-
ers should be worn for the 'En-
sian picture.

nitely inferior squad.

of the Michigan coaching staff, the
Wolverines went through a spirited
drill yesterday that made up in
drive what it may have lacked in
body contact.
The injury department con-
tinued to exhibit the most en-
couraging signs to come from
that spot this year.
Leo K o c e s k i was running
through plays from his wingback
post in offensive drills, and Don
Peterson was busy on pass defense
and warmup sprints. Don Oldham
worked out in the ground running
attack although s t ill limping
The only serious injury on the
line still holds offensive tackle
John Hess on the doubtful list.

Exploding for two touchdowns
in the second half, Michigan
House shut out Prescott, 12-0, to
capture the residence hall Intra-
mural football crown.
Miring passes with an extranef-
fective running attack, the new
champs, paced as usual by Howard
Maturen, traveled 80 yards on
seven plays and two first downs
to mark up the first and winning
* *
THE PAYOFF WAS a 35-yard
pass from Maturen to end Russ
Kendall, who made a fine one-
handed catch in the end zone.
The West Quadders applied
the clincher in much the same
fashion. Prescott lost the ball
on downs on its own 35. One
run, two passes to Jim Hatton,
and one penalty later, Michigan
had a first down on Prescott's
8. Maturen then shot a pass
to lion Fackler for the TD.
Prescott's only scoring chance
came immediately after half-time
when a major penalty and a pass
from Jack Price to Hy Levinstein
gave the East Quad men a first
down on Michigan's 15.
BUT ANOTHER major penalty,
this time against Prescott, nulli-
fied a touchdown and put the los-
ers into a hole from which they
were forcer to kick after two fu-
tile pass attempts.


Michigan, Delta Sigs, Mug wumps Rule I-M Football

Prescott was able to play the
victors to a standstill in the first
half mainly on the strength of
pass interceptions by Duane Pos-
sanza and Ken Kellar, plus a tre-
medous 80-yard punt by Levin-
The passing and running of Mil-
ton Heath gave Delta Sigma Phi
the needed spark to snatch the so-
cial fraternity IM grid title from
Phi Sigma Delta 18-0.
Heath, the main offensive wea-
pon for Delta Sigma Phi this sea-
son, passed for two touchdowns to
Jack Hayes and Carl Raiss. The
remaining six pointer was scored
by Raiss on an intercepted pass.
* * *
IN THE INITIAL half the lone
score came about on a pass from
Heath to Raiss which covered 30
yards. Raiss' run back of an in-
tercepted pass accounted for the
second tally while Heath's 20 yard
aerial to Hayes completed the scor-
ing in the second half.
* * *
By virtue of gaining the most
yardage in four overtime plays the
Mugwumps became the new Inde-
pendent champions.

BOTH TEAMS sported strong
passing attacks but neither the
combination of Stan Banash to Ed
Young for the Foresters nor the
duo of Harvey Dean to Jack Kers-
ten for the Mugwumps could pro-
duce a sole touchdown in regula-
tion play.
The closest the Foresters ever
came to scoring was.after they
received the kickoff and drove
to the Mugwumps' 25 yard line
only to lose the ball on downs.
The Mugwumps main threat
soon followed when Kersten caught
a long pass from Dean and carried
to the 15 only to have an inter-
ception stop them on the next play.
* * *
Alpha Chi Sigma, fighting back
to overcome a six point deficit in
the first half, squeaked past Nu
Sigma Nu, 7-6, to win the Profes-
sional Fraternity Championship.
With less than two minutes to
play, Don Demondo, Alpha Chi
back, passed to Ron Clark for a
25 yard scoring play, and then
tossed to Bill Nemec for the ex-
tra point and the game.
Nu Sigma Nu reached the dia-
gonal stripes four plays after they
received the opening kickoff when
Tom Peterson took th° ball on a

reverse from Bill Bartlett and fired
a pass to Dick Park for their 6-0
lead which was not big enough
to win the game and retain the
title they had won last year.
