Unbeaten Sextets Clash on Coliseum Ice


ith the
Associate Sports Editor
THE SECOND-GUESSERS (West Coast variety) really had a field
┬źday following California's third straight collapse in the "grand-
daddy" of the bowl games in Pasadena. Naturally the Bear's head
man, Lynn "Pappy" Waldorf, came in for a major share of the at-
tack, in fact almost all of it.
It was a bitter blow for the coast scribes to take, the fifth shel-
lacking in a row by the Big Ten, and they minced no words in de-
scribing their feelings. Most of them were confident of a Cal triumph,
some predicting a margin of as much as two and three TD's,
Here's what one of the more outspoken gentlemen of the press
had to say in the December 30 issue of the Los Angeles Daily News.
It's by Ned Cronin, the Sports Editor:
".. I am going to come right out with it and say that Cali-
fornia is going to win the old ball game by a score of 26-7. That's
a margin of three touchdowns and if the Bears aren't that much
better than the Michigans, then they've got no business in the
Rose Bowl.... Only one other team-Brown University in 1914--
ever came west with a record as poor as Michigan's.... The only
resemblance between this squad and the one that pulverized
Southern California in the Arroyo Seco three years ago is that
they both represent the same school. Otherwise, they are as much
alike as Noor and a Shetland pony."
After the game he had this to say, "The Big Ten retired the Uni-
versity of California football team yesterday. ... your correspondent
was unable to determine whether Michigan gets to take the University
of California back to Ann Arbor as a fixture for Bennie Oosterbaan's
* * * *
fVHE REST OF THEM weren't quite as sacrastic but all had their
various reasons why it turned out to be a glorious day for the Wol-
verines and the Big Ten. Dick Hyland of the Times was one of Wal-
dorf's biggest critics. He began his January 3 column like this:
"Personally, I am willing to give up. When that kind of a
Michigan football team can come out here and batter down the
champions of the Pacific Coast, something is radically wrong
with Pacific Coast football. . . . It was with fear and trembling
that we approached the Rose Bowl game yesterday.... the burned
child fears the fire. . . . the 'fear and trembling' remark . .. is
* prompted more by how the Bears will be handled than how they
will play.... Pappy Waldorf and his staff frittered that last pair
of ball games away. . . . "And I'm a Chinese Communit if they
didn't do it again!'"
Hyland went on about the diamond defense that California stuck
to all afternoon and the fact that the Bears were so ineffective against
Ortmann's passes. He claimed that no team had used one defense
against a major opponent in 20 years.
GEORGE T. DAVIS of the Evening Herald and Express was one of
those who thought Waldorf should have called for a field goal in
the waning moments of the first half when California was threaten-
ing the Wolverine goal. He blamed both Waldorf and Quarterback
Pete Marinos.
Braven Dyer of the Times agreed in that regard. He wrote,
"If that situation doesn't call for a field goal, then all that I ever
learned about football is worthless. ... Whe*I I picked Cal I as-
sumed they'd try to win."
It goes on and on like this through all the LA papers. Not many
of them will admit that they were taken in by Michigan's unimpres-
sive 5-3-1 record going into the game. They told of Ortmann's pass-
ing ability, but some said that Cal had stopped Don Heinrich of
Washington and he is a "better passer" than Charlie.
They apparently didn't know much about the Wolverine one
man ground attack, Don Dufek. Don had his first or last name mis-
spelled three times in various papers, probably indicating that he
wasn't considered in the class of California's three backfield aces.

Coach Says
Ball Control
Ruins Game
What's all this fuss about ball
control killing basketball?
It's even a puzzle to Hank Iba,
Oklahoma Aggie coach who has
been a champion of the cage
game and of control for nigh on
to 25 years.
Texas coach Jack Gray said Iba
and his followers were killing the
game by slowing it down with
And Wichita coach Ken Gun-
ning charged Iba, whose team
is No. 2 in the nation with 13
straight victories, is using
roughhouse tactics in winning.
Today peppery Nat Holman of
City College of New York took a
pivot shot at Iba with the warn-
ing that control teams might have
a hard time finding teams to play.
He said fans want action.
To which Iba replied today:
"As long as the general public
finds method in control play-
ing,you'll never have to worry
about crowd appeal.
"The average basketball coach
and even some better known
coaches really do not understand
what they term ball control. Ball
control as the public understands
it is a stalling game.
"As we teach it, it is pattern
play. That does not man play-
ing slower but control handling of
the ball until a shot occurs."
* * *
COMPLAINTS this year against
Iba's deliberate type of game are
a surprise. In past seasons, Iba
has been content with winning
with less than 40 points. This
year he a4empts to get between
49 and 61 points a game.
Iba has proven that ball con-
trol is the only way a small
team can beat a squad loaded
with tall men.
Two Big Seven Conference
coaches have come to Iba's de-
Dr. F. 6. (Phog) Allen, of. Kan-
sas, said you can't beat success. "If
ball control wins games, crowds
will come to see a winner."
* * *
souri pointed out his club used
ball control to offset the absence
of a tall center but the fans keep
coming to watch his team.
"Everybody knew we were
going to play the control game
when we met CCNY in Madison
Square Garden," Stalcup noted,
"and 18,000 came to watch."
Iba also had little worry of
scheduling teams because his
team uses ball control.

'M' Encounters Montreal
In Crucial Puck Series

Two unblemished college hock-
ey records go on the block tomor-
row night when Michigan opens a
two-game series with Montreal
University at the Coliseum.
Already tabbed as the games of
the year for Ann Arbor fans, the
"dream" series will pit a Wol-
verine sextet that ishcurrently
ranked the tops in the United

from last year plus several addi-
tions that have made the Mon-
treal sextet a stronger opponent
than last year (in Canada fresh-
men as well as graduate students
are permitted to engage in in-
tercollegiate athletics).
And last season's Carabin
crew was a powerhouse that
smashed is way to top as the
Canadian senior collegiate
champions, rolling up a season's
record of 20 victories and two
One of these setbacks, however,
came at the hands of the Wol-
verines in last year's thrilling two-
game set here in Ann Arbor.
Ann Arboroites saw college
hockey at its rugged best when
the invading Carabins overpow-
ered Michigan, 4-3, in the first
engagement only to have the Wol-
verines come back the following
night to do the Canadians one
better, whipping the Northerners,

THE WOLVERINES will be re-
lying on their high-geared bal-
anced scoring attack to provide
the edge in this series, their
toughest test of the campaign to
Paced by the "terrific trio" of
Neil Celley, Gil Burford and
John McKennell, the Michigan
offense has accounted for an
average 8.4 goals per game thus
far. Ce-ley currently leads the
scoring parade with 26 points
(11 goals and 15 assists).
But again it may be the Maize
and Blue defense, which can't
seem to find a game in which it
isn't on the spot, that may tell
the story in the final analysis.
Montreal gets the nod as far as
experience goes, but the Wover-
ine defenders have been Able to
come through in the clutch every
time this season.

TEMPORARILY OUT ......These two Ohio State varsity foot-
ball players, halfback Richard (Skip) Doyle (left), and All-Amer-
ican Vic Janowicz, will, for different reasons, both be absent
from the university during the winter quarter. The university,
which on Dec. 20 expelled the two gridders for poor grades, an-
nounced yesterday that a make-up examination had raised
Doyle's grade and removed the record of his dismissal. Mean-
while, Doyle voluntarily left school for the winter quarter "be-
cause I have to make some money."
