NEW YORK-Michigan State

ber one spot in the weekly Asso-
ciated Press football poll yesterday
with 55 of 158 first place votes

casters.
Humbling Notre Dame, 35-0, in
full view of a network television
audience, the unbeaten Michigan
State eleven ended Tennessee's
three-week reign.
THE ROUSING victory over
from fifth to first with a total of
1,316 points. They led the poll in
the first two weeks of the season.
Then California took over for a
week before Tennessee moved on'
top.
Tennessee drew 42 firsts and a
second place total of 1,155 points
to beat off a strong challenge by
Illinois' Big Ten leaders.
Michigan tumbled ten places,
from twenty-first to thirty-first,
after the 20-7 drubbing by Cor-
nell.

STRANGE SIGHT-Michigan's right halfback Tom Witherspoon snags a pass from Bill Putich
against Cornell at Ithaca Saturday. It was one of Michigan's meager total of seven completions in
28 attempts. Four were intercepted. Number 83 is Wolverine end Tad Stanford, and 28 is Ithacan
linebacker John Dorrance.

Lions Tighten Race
With 41-28_Victory
The Detroit Lions remained in
the thick of the National Confer-
ence Pro championship race Sun-
day by handing the league-leading
Chicago Bears their second set-
back, 41-2before 46,210 fans at
Wrigley Field.
The Lions now find themselves
one-half game off the pace with
a 4-2-1 record, while the Bears
and the Los Angeles Rams, who
crushed the Chicago Cardinals,
45-21, lead the loop with 5-2
marks.
Other Sunday games saw Pitts-
burgh down Green Bay, 28-7;
Cleveland get by Philadelphia, 20-
17; New. York Giants defeated
Washington, 28-14; a n d San
Francisco edge the New York
Yankees, 19-14.
IN THEIR decisive victory over
GeorgeHHalas' squad, the Lions
broke an 11 game losing streak 'to
the North Side pros, and also
rolled up their biggest point total
of the year.
It took the Lions only four
plays from scrimmage to score
their first touchdown after the
Bears kicked off.
A 47-yard pass from Bobby
Layne to Done Dibble gave an
indication of what the Bears were
in for. Two plays later Layne hit
Dibble in the end-zone for Layne's
first of four touchdown passes.
THE BEARS scored first in the
second quarter; a 54-yard pass
from Steve Romanik to John
Hoffman tied the count at 7-all.
After a 51-yard kickoff run-
back by Doak Walker, Layne
maneuvered his team to the
Bear two yard strip with three
downs to punch the pigskin
over. When the Chicago line
held twice, Walker kicked a
field goal.
Then the Lions went to work
as the Bears fell apart. Ed Ber-
rang recovered a fumble and in-
tercepted a pass within five min-
utes. The offensive combination,
with ex-Bear Layne passing to
Leon Hart, pushed over two fast
tallies to make the score 24-7 at
intermission.
The story of the second half
was a tale of two even teams play-
ing on a touchdown-for-touch-
down basis.

It was an injury riddled Michi-
gan football team that drilled on
the wet and muddy turf at South
Ferry Field yesterday.
No fewer than seven Wolverines
found themselves on the injury
list following Saturday's 20-7 de-
feat by Cornell.
LOWELL PERRY, Roger Zat-
koff, Don Peterson, Merritt (Tim)
Green, Don Bennett, Don Dugger
and Bill Putich picked up enough
bumps and bruises to keep train-
er Jim Hunt busy for a week.
Most of the injuries are of a
minor nature and all will prob-
ably be ready for Saturday's
clash with Northwestern.
Green is the most doubtful start-
er in the crowd. A bruised hip in-
curred in the third quarter was
serious enough to keep him out of
yesterday's practice session.
* * *
PERRY, WHO was crippled by
a bad ankle and an intestinal dis-
order in the Big Red game, is rap-
idly rounding into shape and
should be in top form soon.
Putich, Peterson, Zatkoff and
Dugger are nursing leg injuries,
but all took part in yesterday's
drills. Bennett's loss of three
teeth shouldn't impair his per-
formance at tackle.
On the positive side of the led-
ger was the impending return to
the lineup of Frank Howell who
had been sidelined with an ankle
injury since the Stanford game.

Howell ran through yesterday's
light drill without any trace of a
limp. Howell's return would give
Oosterbaan some much needed
backfield depth.
THE EMPHASIS was on ball
handling yesterday as the soaked
Wolverines worked to avoid a re-

petition of last Saturday's shoddy
display which resulted in five cost-
ly fumbles against the Big Red
from Ithaca. Michigan lost the
ball on two of these occasions.
Movies of the Cornell game and
a scouting report on Northwest-
ern's 35-14 loss to Purdue complet-
ed the day's workout.

Adams Downs Gomberg, 12-7
In Second Place I-M Playoff
Intraiural teams clashed on a muddy, icy field yesterday in the
second-through-fifth place Residence Halls finals.
In the second place final, Adams scored twice in the first
half of the Adams-Gomberg game on a pass from Ron Chubb to
Bill Gouldthorpe, and on.Gouldthorpe's deflection of an opponent's
pass into the arms of teammate Al Fey, who raced over for the
second tally. Gomberg scored in the second half on a pass from
Pat Donahue to Byron Hedeen and made the extra point but
couldn't overcome Adam's 12-7 lead.
Williams' 32-2 victory over Greene was sparked by Herb Eibler, who
passed for two touchdowns and ran for another, and Earl Kaufmann,
who caught three aerials in the end zone to give Williams fifth place
honors.
PHIL JACOBUS lofted a pass to Kelly Tarachas for 6 points on
the first play from scrimmage of the Strauss-Kelsey game. Wally
Dzurus provided the winning point in the 7-6 game when he caught
Adam Roth's aerial for the extra point. The victory gave Strauss a
fourth place championship.
The brother combination of Bob Leach to Dick Leach clicked
on a flat pass in the Fletcher-Prescott game, giving Fletcher a
6-0 win. The contest decided third place honors.
This afternoon at 4:30 Alpha Tau Omega and Phi Gamma Delta
are scheduled to play for the fraternity grid championship.

State everywhere but on the score-
board where it counts most, and
the previously pitiful Panthers
walked off their field with a mor-
al victory, although OSU recorded
a 16-14 decision. Pittsburgh has
yet to win a game this season, suf-
fering humiliating defeats by
Notre Dame and Michigan State
among ohers.
The Wildcats and Buckeyes
represent the difference between
a successful and a poor season
for Michigan. 1U the Wolverines
can whip both, the Maize and
Blue will finish the campaign
with a winning 5-4 record, and
also place on top or close to it
in the final Big Ten standings
On the basis of Saturday's per-
formance, neither foe appears too
formidable.

TWO LONG touchdown passes
by little Dale Samuels highlighted
Purdue's one-sided triumph. The
Boilermakers led, 28-0, before Bob
Burson's passing saved Northwest-
ern from a shutout. The losers tal-
lied twice in the final ten minutes.
Purdue pushed across three
touchdowns in the third period to
ice the game.
Norm Kragseth and Bill Ku-
ehl, Wildcat ends, snared Burson
passes to score Northwestern's
two touchdowns, Kragseth boot-
ed both extra points.
Ohio squeaked through on Vic
Janowicz' 20 yard third period
field goal, which provided an ade-
quate cushion for Pitt's two last
quarter scores.
*; * *
STATISTICALLY, the Buckeyes
were beaten. Pit piled up 21 first
downs to 13, gained 205 yards
rushing to Ohio's 157, and made
127 yardrs through the air to the
Buck's 39.

The difference was that Ohio
took advantage of three of four
s c o r i n g opportunities while
Pittsburgh squandered five
chances before scoring with sev-
en minutes left.
Halfback Fred Bruney knocked
down two passes that were labeled
touchdown for the Panthers, and
intercepted another in the second
half in what was the decisive per-
formance for the Buckeyes.
JANOWICZ AND quarterback
Tony Curcillo sparked what of-
fense the Buckeyes mustered. Cur-
cillo scored both Ohio touchdowns
on runs of one and 26 yards, after
he and Janowicz had alternated
carrying the ball on drives that set
up the tallies.
Pitt powered 74 yards for its
second touchdown, quarterback
Bob Bestwick sneaking over with
just 38 seconds left in the game.
Time ran out before the Panthers
could get their hands on the ball
again.
This weekend Ohio State meets
powerful Illinois at Columbus.
