Redskins Prove Too Much for Wolverines;

The gray-haired Michigan cage
mentor was a helpless figure on
the bench at Saturday's season
inaugural as he watched his
charges absorb the first opening
night Wolverine defeat in 17 years.
MIAMI'S REDSKINS were not
brilliant but held complete com-
mand throughout the contest.
Against the backdrop of the
visitors' spirited play, Michigan
appeared confused and impo-
Most evident shortcoming among
the Wolverines was their lack of
any organized scoring punch.
There were periods of considerable
length during which they failed
to register a single point.

THE THREE FORWARDS who
cracked the lineup, Jim Skala,
Bob Olson and sophomore Paul
fellows had Heavyweight Cham-
pion Ezzard Charles a 541 choice
yesterday to retain his laurels in
tonight's 15-round title scrap with
rugged Nick Barone of Syracuse.
Overlooking the fact Barone has
never been off his feet in 52 pro-
fessionals fights, the betting boys
opine "The only thing Charles
figures to lose is his moustache."
The Queen City. boxing com-
mission ordered the champ to
shave the hirsute adornment
from his upper lip.
About 10,000 of Charles' home
town fans are expected to put
some $50,000 on the line to watch
the Cincinnati slugger's fifth de-
fense of the title in Ohio's firstj
heavyweight championship scrap
in almost 20 years. The payoff will
be on the number of dollars they
draw at the gate, with Charles
getting 42%/ per cent, and Barone
Geyer, were held to a collective
ration of only four points.
With the exception of Cap-
tain Charlie Murray the guards
were even less effective. Five
of them contributed six markers
to the futile Michigan cause.
That left the scoring burden on
center Leo VanderKuy and Mur-
ray who were credited with 15
and 11 respectively.
IN ADDITION to a field goal
scarcity the losers were shackled
by inaccuracy at the free throw
line. They muffed 16 of their 30
Offensive and defensive re-
bounding by the Wolverines left
much to be desired.
The game's pattern became mo-
notonous as Michigan repeatedly
got off one shot at the basket
and then lost the ball. Miami, on1
the other hand, sometimes fired
five or six consecutive attempts
before scoring or losing posses-
THE POOR Wolverine board
work could not be attributed en-
tirely to lack of height since the
Redskins did not have much of,
an edge there.
It was more a case of the
team lacking polish and incen-
tive against a fired-up quintet.
McCoy has no place to turn for
relief. He must develop the ma-
terial he used Saturday if he ex-
pects to break into the victory
column at all this season.

Captain Dave Neisch spoke
for the team as a whole when
he said that the Michigan
natators knew they were un-
derdogs because of large gradu-
ation losses, but that this fact
has only made the men work
harder. Unbelievable accom-
plishments have been produced
by the psychological spark of
being an underdog.
Supposedly in the middle dis-
tance races there could be no re-
placements for the "twins", for-

NEW YORK-(P-The general
and lasting impression, of course,
is that Navy just kicked the spin-
ach out of Army all the bleak af-
ternoon at Philadelphia last Sat-
urday, but other memories which
probably will die with the years
still are vivid in the mind.
The picture, for instance, of
Navy back Dave Bannerman, in-
censed when an Army defender
plowed into him out-of-bound,
uncorking a punch that sent the
surprised Cadet staggering back
about six steps. It was a beautiful
blow, flush on the button. If Joe
Louis had a right like that he'd
still be champion. The officials

Army had punted. The Navy safe-

untouched, but a teammate dove
for it, just touched it with his

die safety man cuddled the ball
to his own bosom.
