THE MICHIGAN DAILY
LAURELS FOR LOWELL:
PerryNamed Best 'M' Player of Week y
AP Chooses 'X-Rays Show Cracked Bone
Ward Best In Foot of Speedy Halfback
One of the nation's outstanding
pass receiving performances has
won for Lowell Perry, Michigan's
stellar end, the acclaim of sports-
writers who selected him as the
outstanding Wolverine on the field
in Saturday's Michigan-Indiana
At the same time, the sports-
writers picked Gene Gedman,
hard-driving Indiana fullback, as
the top Hoosier performer.
PERRY WAS closely followed in
the balloting by Don Peterson who
played probably his finest offensive
game. But Perry's pass-snagging
was truly sensational.
Early in the first quarter, he
grabbed a 30-yard forward from
Peterson to highlight Michigan's
opening drive for pay dirt. When
the Wolverines got close to In-
diana's goal line, he carried the
ball on an end around for a key
9-yard gain to put the Wolver-
ines on the 4 from where Peter-
son bulled over moments later.
r On the first play of the second
period, Bill Putich ran to his right
on a fake strong side run and fired
a short pass over the line to Perry,
who wheeled away from a Hoosier

defensive halfback and raced 40
yards into the end zone to make
the score 12-0.dThe play covered a
total of 48 yards.

which netted him 70 yards in 16
tries for a fine 4.4 rushing average
was also a highlight. The Wolver-
Phi Gains Take 3r Straight;
Theta Xi, ATO Still Undefeated
Three fraternities rolled to their third straight wins of the season
yesterday in Intramural football contests.
Phi Gamma Delta continued undefeated when it licked previously
unbeaten Delta Tau Delta 18-6. Joe Middletown was the big gun
for the Phi Gams, tossing two touchdown passes, one to Dick Thomp-
son and the other to Jack Stumpfig, and running five yards himself
for the other score. Whit Sawyer racked up Delta Tau Delta's only
TWO TD'S IN THE first half enabled Theta Xi to remain in the
win column as they blanked Kappa Nu 13-0. Jack Hamer gathered
in a pass from Jack Lawrence for the first touchdown, and Ted Hagen
raced 20 yards-with an interception for the other one.
Alpha Tau Omega blasted Acacia 42-0 to post its third victory
of the year. Howard Maturan passed twice to Don Fackler, and
once each to Bennie Young, Don Wier, and Bud Richner to account
for five touchdowns, and was on the receiving end of a toss from
Richner for the other six-pointer.
In the closest game of the day Phi Sigma Delta nipped Phi Kappa
Tau. 18-12 in an overtime battle. Larry Sperling's five-yard pass to
Gene Mackevich was good for Phi Kappa Tau's first six points while
Sperling ran 55 yards behind some beautiful blocking for another

Ernie Constan threw to Hank Levering and Roger Gilmore for
the Phi Kappa Tau TD's. In the overtime Sperling hurled a pass to
Len Bernstein good for 40 yards and a touchdown to ice the game for
Phi Kappa Tau TD's. In the overtime Sperling hurled a pass to Len
Bernstein good for 40 yards "and a touchdown to ice the game for
Phi Sigma Delta.
In other contests Sigma Phi whipped Zeta Psi 14-0, Sigma Phi
Epsilon trounced Sigma Nu 33-0, Zeta Beta Tau shut out Theta Delta
Chi 28-0, Psi Upsilon defeated Tau Kappa Epsilon 19-6, and Phi Delta
Epsilon edged the Air Force 6-0.

ine fullback was not stopped once
for a loss and in addition com-
pleted 2 of 4 passes for 67 yards.
Perry carried a total of 4
times on the end around for 18
yards but was smeared once on
the same play for a 10-yard loss
giving him a 2 yard average.
The Ypsilanti junior also threw
one pass on the end around play
but it was dropped by Fred Pick-
ard. All told, Perry snagged five
passes for a total of 165 yards and
IF HE CONTINUES at the same
pace, he will easily break the Big
Ten season record for pass re-
ceiving (28 catches for 394 yards)
set by Northwestern's Don Stone-
sifer last year.
In the final moments of the
game, Perry made his finest
catch of the day to set up Michi-
gan's last tally.
With the Wolverines and fresh-
man quarterback Duncan McDon
ald operating from the T-forma-
tion, Perry raced down the eastern
sidelines, deflected McDonald's
long toss away from two Indiana
backs and made a great diving
one-handed grab on the Indiana 8.
MOMENTS LATER, McDonald
passed to Pickard in the end zone.
Perry also played a standout de-
fensive game at safety and his to-
tal playing time was over 40 min-
Gedman stood out in a losing
cause for the Hoosiers. The pile-
driving fullback gained 75 yards
on 20 carries for a rushing average
of 3.75 per try. He also grabbed two
of Lou D'Achille's passes for addi-

Landis' closest advisers, said yes-

O'Connor told a House Judici-

Judge Landis never liked the farm
systems. But, O'Connor said,
"Judge Landis did not oppose it
as much as I do."

EAST LANSING -- (P) - Some
rough scrimmage sessions with
everybody bumping heads were on
order today for the Michigan
State Football team.

since the start of practice, the
Spartans had it comparativeiy

COACH BIGGIE Munn was par-
ticularly annoyed by some of the
poor blocking by his linesmen
"Maybe we've been blocking
those sawdust dummies too long
in practice," Munn said. "It
looks like we've got to get back
to hitting live bait."
Munn was also irked by the
rash of fumbles that marked the
game. "Sloppy ball-handling is
our worst enemy," he told his

then was injured early in the next
