BETTER DAYS AHEAD:
Wrestlers Hopeful of Future Success

AUSTIN, Tex.-(P)--Ben Tomp-
kins and a massive, manhandling
line whipped Texas A. and M. 17-0
yesterday as Texas thundered to
the end of the Southwest Confer-
ence race undefeated for the first
time in history .
Playing smashing, jarring ball,
the slam-bang Longhorns paid tri-
bute to their coach, Blair Cherry,
with their 10th victory and one
tie in 11 years of battling A. and
M., their deepest gridiron rivals,
in the Southwest's oldest and bit-
terest rivalry.
Cherry lay ill in a hospital, not
even permitted to listen to the
game on the radio. But Tompkins,
the passing, running, thinking
quarterback of the Longhorns,
threw for one touchdown, engi-
neered the slashing Orange Wave
on another scoring drive, then
Persons who hold athletic
coupon books for their wives or
dependent children are remind-
ed that they must purchase a
17c tax ticket to accompany the
coupon for this Saturday's bas-
ketball game. Tax tickets are
on sale only at the ticket office
and will not be sold at the
game. Tax tickets may be pur-
chased for the whole season at
one time.

wound up his greatest day by kick-
ing a field goal from the Aggie
17-yard line.
The Cadets were stubborn cus-
tomers 'and threatened to score
several times but never could move
aside the gigantic Texas line,
spearheaded by mighty Ken Jack-
son and Lewis (Bud) McFadin.
A crowd of 65,498 saw the game
-57th in the ancient series.

Today was not the first time
Texas ever went undefeated in
conference play but was the first
time under the present conference
membership.
The Longhorns have lost only
one game this season-a 14-13 af-
fair to Oklahoma-and will be in
the Cotton Bowl Jan. 1. Before
that, however, they play Louisiana
State to finish the 1950 regular
schedule.

Michigan's Western Conference
champions, who won more ball
games than they lost this season,
didn't parallel that record in the
statistics for the 1950 season re-
leased yesterday.
In rushing, the Wolverines'gain-
ed 1265 net yards. Their nine op-
ponents gained 1278.
. * * * i .
IN PASSING, the Wolverines did
better, with a yardage edge of
980 to 750.
As a result, the up-and-down
men of Michigan outdid their
opponents by a scant 213 yards
in total offense, with the re-
spective marks 2539 and 2326.
Michigan's multiple ball-handl-
ing produced a surfeit of fumbles,
as the backfield and pass-receivers
dropped the pigskin 34 times dur-
ing the season.
But the Maize and Blue made
up for their deficiency in that
department by blocking eight
punts, with two of these maneu-
vers garnering them the'confer-

ence championship in the Ohio
State game.
IN THE INDIVIDUAL statistics,
Don Dufek, Chuck Ortmann, and
Lowell Perry were the leaders.
Dufek was the top man in
rushing yardage, with 589 to ,,
Ralph Straffon's 127. He also
led scoring with 32 points.
Ortmann was again tops in
passing, with a total of 590 yards.
Perry caught 21 passes for 327
yards to be the chief man in that
department.

As Michigan's varsity wrestlers
prepare for their inaugural dual
meet of the season on Dec. 16,
rays of optimism are permeating
the Wolverine camp.
Last year at this time Cliff
Keen, this school's contribution to
America's grappling sport, was
searching at all available sources
for men to represent him ade-
quately in the quickly approach-
ing mat season.
THIS YEAR he is blessed with
a vast quantity of experienced
men, especially in the lighter
weight divisions.
The difference between last
year and this year lies essential-
ly in three men who last year at
this time were untried but who
this year have one year of vast-
ly successful experience under
their belts. They are Larry Nel-
son who will wrestle at 130 lbs.,
Dave Space who will Wrestle at
147 lbs., and Bill Stapp Michi-
gan's grappler in the 157 lb.
weight division.
All enjoyed successful seasons
last year as the Wolverine team
as a whole came through kith,

Special to The Daily
CHICAGO-Northwestern's Don
Stonesifer led the parade of sta-
tistics released yesterday, as the
Western Conference crowned four
individual champions for the 1950
season.
Stonesifer climaxed his career
with the Wildcats by breaking all
pass-receiving records, while Dick
Raklovits of Illinois, John Coatta
of Wisconsin, and Ohio State's
great junior back, Vic Janowicz,
wound up ahead in the other three,
major departments.

Daffer of Tennessee was named
lineman of the week yesterday by
the AP sportswriters.
Daffer, a guard, starred in Ten-

Kentucky last Saturday. The 185--
pounder from Norfolk, Va., makes
up in speed what he lacks in
brawn, relying on a fast break to
crack through the enemy line.

Michigan's Don Dufek, hin-
dered by the blizzard at Colum-
bus last Sat'urday, gained only
nine yards against the Buckeyes
and wound up third behind the
brilliant Raklovits and Iowa's
Bill Reichardt.
That same blizzard cut into the
winning total offense yardage es-
tablished by the Buckeyes' Vic
Janowicz. He wound up first in
scoring ahead of Dufel: with 48
points on four touchdowns, twen-
ty-one extra points, and one field
goal.
Stonesifer's record total in pass-
catching, 28, almost doubled the
Second-place total of Wisconsin's
Bill Felker, who had 18. Stonesifer
also established a new mark for
yardage gained by pass-catching,
with 394 yards in his six confer-
ence games.

CH'UCK ORTMANN of the Rose
Bowl-bound Wolverines, who led
the conference in total offense
during the 1948 and 1949 seasons,
wound up fourth behind Janowicz,

Flowers of Northwestern.
Ortmann had 147 yards rushing
and 472 yards through the air for
a 677 yard total.
