BIG TEN BRIEFS:
Eager Buckeyes Attempt
To Stay On Victory Path-

By ROD COOK
Although the struggle between
Illinois and Michigan at Cham-
paign takes precedence in both Big
Ten and national interest this
Saturday, two other important
Western Conference contests will
be decided this week.
The first will match a chastened
Wildcat squad against Ohio State,
now apparently ready and eager
to prove that the great things ex-

Badger Pair
ATakes Lead
In Statistics
CHICAGO --(P)- Wisconsin's
one-two combination of John
Coatta's passing and young Alan
Ameche's running gives the Badg-
ers the Big Ten's top individual
performers.
Official statistics released yes-
terday show Coatta's heaves have
been good for 679 yards. He's at-
tempted 96 passes in his four Con-
ference games and completed 51
for a .531 average.
* * *
FIVE OF HIS tosses went for
touchdowns.
Ameche, the freshman who runs
like a pro, has run up 391 yards on
76 rushes for an average of. 5.1.
The respective totals of the
two Badgers place them well to
the fore of other Big Ten stars.
Tony Curcillo of Ohio State set
a record for one game last week-
end against Iowa when his pass
and run efforts were good for a
total 308 yards. He ranks second
to Coatta in total offense now
with 469 yards in three games.
ANOTHER Wisconsin back,
Jerry Witt, holds the scoring lead
in the Big Ten. Witt scored four
touchdowns Saturday against
Northwestern and now has 36
points in Big Ten competition.
Fullback Bill Reichardt of
Iowa is giving Ameche the clos-
est race for rushing leader. In
three Conference games Rei-
chardt has crunched 310 yards
on an average of 5.2 yards per
try.
Both Ameche and Reichardt are
topped in average gain, however,
by Michigan's Wes Bradford, with
an 8.4 average on 24 attempts,
and by Johnny Karas of Illinois,
with. a 5.7 average on 31 carries.
Bill Putich of Michigan has the
best passing average. He's com-
pleted .625 per cent of his throws.
One of his receivers, Lowell Perry,
leads the take-in department with
12 catches good for 324 yards.

pected at the start
were not just false

of the season
alarms.

ALSO, POWERFUL Wisconsin
and undependable Indiana will
clash at Madison next Saturday,
and Wisconsin is expected to keep
its Bowl hopes alive by beating
the Hoosiers.
The Wildcats, after having
won four straight, were dumped
by an impressive Wisconsin
eleven 41-0 and are still licking
their wounds. These injuries
are mostly mental, according to
coach Bob Voigts, who said,
"We haven't any serious injur-
ies. In fact, the boys didn't
play hard enough to get hurt."
Since the recent severe Hoosier
deflation, Buckeye preferred is
zooming again in Columbus as a
result of Ohio's resounding 47-21
victory over a good Iowa team.
OHIO STATE'S hopes are being
further bolstered by the return
of Captain Bob Heid and all-
American halfback Vic Janowicz
to the lineup.
At Madison the Badgers are
going ahead with their prepara-
tions for Saturday's festivities
minus their two regular offen-
sive ends, Hal Favey and Gene
Felher.
Incidentally, the Wisconsin de-
fense was labeled by a Hoosier
scout as the best he has seen all
season. The Badger defensive con-
tingent certainly seemed to live
up to this billing against North-
western last week, as they held
the Wildcats to a total of 23 yards
rushing.
* * ,*
THE PREVIOUSLY p o t e n t
Northwestern aerial attack was
held to nine completions for 90
yards in 29 tries.
Indiana suffered a very se-
vere blow to its hopes for an
upset over the Badgers when
Bob Robertson, Hoosier left
halfback, was inducted into the
army this week.
Robertson is noted as one of the
Big Ten's best punters. His total
offense in the 23 games he played
for Indiana shows 2,799 yards
gained for 90 points, just six
points short of the all-time Indi-
ana scoring period.

COACH CLYDE SMITH promo-
ted freshman Florian Helsinki to
the varsity to take over Robert-
son's punting duties.
Purdue has seven backs side-
lined after last Saturday's bruis-
ing contest with Notre Dame as
the Boilermakers dig in in pre-
paration for Penn State.
MSC has an open date this
week, and thus will have two
weeks to prepare for their game
with Notre Dame.

ROY CAMPANELLA
. .star Brooklyn catcher
11' Hopeful
Of Chances
On Saturday
Illinois is the big one.
Michigan's Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan has been muttering "Illinois"
to himself and his coaching staff
for the past month, but the tone
of hisutterances have changed
considerably of late.
THREE WEEKS ago they car-
ried a rather hopeless, resigned
tone. Now, after three straight
Conference wins, Oosterbaan's
"Illinois" has transformed into a
confident, somewhat optimistic
keynote as the Wolverines make
calculated preparations for an,
upset of the Illini Saturday.
And an upset it will be should
Michigan win, since the unde-
feated Champaign outfit ranked
third in the country, is a seven
point favorite to take the Maize
and Blue, according to latest
reports from the wagering
gentry.
Saturday's contest is being
billed as the game to decide the
Big Ten Championship, with both
principals unbeaten in Confer-
ence play.
SPIRIT BEGAN to build uip in
yesterday's drills as the Wolver-
ines went through their usual of-
fensive and defensiveworkout,
most of it in a cold twilight.
The Maize and Blue polished
its passing attack, with several
throwers hittingkassorted tar-
gets. Lacking an outstanding
passer, Oosterbaan has solved
the problem by having everyone
in the backfield throw, Bill Put-
ich, Don Oldham, Ted Topor,
and Don Peterson especially.
Last year Illinois had to figure
on stopping Chuck Ortmann to
halt Michigan'staerial attack, but
this weekend the Illini will be
forced to worry about several pass-
ers.
D E F E N S I V E L Y Michigan's
headache is how to stop Johnny
Karras.
The afternoon's drill concluded
on an optimistic note, character-
istic of recent practices: Seeing
Lowell Perry make a leaping one-
handed catch of a pass on the
last scrimmage play, Oosterbaan
jovially shouted, "That's all; I've
seen enough."

NEW YORK --iP) - Roy Cam-
panella, Brooklyn's brilliant catch-
er, yesterday was named Most
Valuable Player in the National
League for 1951 by a 24-man com-
mittee of the Baseball Writers As-
sociation of America.
It was the third time in the
last 13 years that the writers have
strayed from a National League
pennant winner to pick the Mostj
Valuable Player. Although the
Dodgers blew a 13/2 game lead
and lost the flag to the New York
Giants in a playoff, Campanella
drew 11 of 24 first place votes.
THE CHUNKY catcher, ap-
proaching his 30th birthday Nov.
19, shrugged off a series of injur-
ies, trying to avoid the threat of
disaster. Hobbled by a leg in-
jury he limped through the first
playoff game but had to sit out
the last two as the Dodgers lost
the pennant. He batted .325,
fourth highest in the League, hit
33 homers and drove in 108 runs.
Campanella piled up 243
points on the basis of 14 for a
first place vote, nine for second
and so on down to one for tenth.
He clearly outdistanced the op-
position.
Stan Musial of St. Louis, win-
ning his fifth batting title with a
.355 average, finished second with
two firsts and 191 points. Stan
was the only man to be named
on all 24 ballots.
* * *
MONTE IRVIN, big power man
for the Giants with 121 runs
batted in and a .312 average, had
five first place votes-three more
than Musial. Still, Irvin wound
up with 166 points, good only for
third place.

voting with first place votes in

Johnny Karras Sparks
IllinoisRunning Attack
By HERB NEIL
Michigan will face one of the
most dangerous runners in the
country in the person of Johnny
Karras when they take the field
against Illinois Saturdayafter-
noon.
The Wolverines' concentration
on defense this week in practice ,
is in large measure devoted to
finding the key to halting this
elusive halfback, who holds the
Big Ten rushing record of 732
yards which he set as a sopho-
more.'
AFTER COMPILING such a fine
record in 1949 Karras was ham-j
pered by a sprained ankle last
season which kept him out of two
games and limited his play in a
third encounter. Despite his in-
juries, however, he was able to
pick up 593 yards on the ground
in 117 carries for an average of
5.1 yards per try. -
One of the games Karras
missed last year was the con-
test with Michigan in the
snow, which the Illini won byJ
a 7-0 score in the battle of JOHNNY KARRAS
punters. Consequently, this will
mark the first time the Wol- season have again been sparked
verines have seen Karras in two by the running of the Argo, Illi-
years. nois speedster.
Following Karras' record break- In the Illini victory over Indi-
ing season in 1949 he was named ana, Saturday, 21-0, Karras scored,
to a third team halfback berth on all three of the victor's touch-

Sig Eps Edge Out Pi Lams;
Qualify for Final Playoffs

In yesterday's big game of the'
day on the I-M football slate,
Sigma Phi Epsilon saw its season
record of never being scored upon
go up in smoke, but they still had
enough offensive power to conquer
Pi Lambda Phi, 20-12, and qualify
to meet Sigma Chi next week for
the Division A championship.
Claude Crawford proved to be
the big gun in the Sig Ep victory.
He hit Paddy Haas twice on
passes for touchdowns, and then
ended his big day by throwing an-
other perfect strike to Dave
Space.
JERRY ROVNER once again led
the Pi Lam attack, although this
time it was in a lost cause. Rovner
passed to Jules Belkin for the Pi
Lams first score, and ran for their
second one himself.
In another decisive game, Psi
Omega shutout Air Force, 21-0,
to clinch the championship of
their division, and qualify for
next week's professional play-
offs.
Bob Reed threw two touchdown
passes, one to Don Briggs and an-
other to Roger Wall who scam-
pered 20 yards after grabbing the
toss. Jim Laidlow acounted for the
rest of the points by taking a
pitchout and racing through the
Air Force defense for 35 yards.
IN THE SAME division, Phi
Delta Phi qualified for the second
place play-offs by walloping Phi
Delta Epsilon, 29-0.
Dick Donaldson passed 35
yards to Wally Riley for the
Phi Delt's first six points, which
were really all that they needed.

Later in the first half, Riley in-
tercepted an enemy pass at mid-
field and ran it all the way back
for another TD.
Bill Clark scampered 10 yards
for the third score, early in the
second half, and Dick Donaldson
passed to Jim Gault for Phi Delta
Phi's final marker after they had
picked up an extra two points
when they trapped a Phi Ep in
the end-zone for a safety.
In other games, Kappa Sigma
defeated Sigma Nu, 7-0; Law
Club 'A' ran all over Phi Delta
Chi, 46-0, and Gomberg edged out
Fletcher, 12-6 in overtime.
