E M TALKING...
- MM /1 J'Ah Jenk
THE WEATHER, scourge of this lovely little southern Michigan town,
is playing havoc with the finals of intramural touch football. For
the last two weeks each game has had all the markings of another
Michigan-Ohio State match. The barren ground of South Ferry Field
turns into a veritable sea of mud on the slightest provocation, making
-lay hazardous and uncertain at best.
All four divisions are still in the various stages of playoff
competition. Weather permitting, the finals in the independent
and residence hall leagues will be held tonight under the lights
of Wines Field. At 7:15 the Foresters will meet Wesleyan for the
independent crown, and an hour later Wenley and Hayden will
take to the gridiron for residence hall honors.
The fraternity division is still in the semi-final stage because of
inclement weather. This afternoon the Sig Eps face Sigma Chi, while
the other tilt between ATO and the Phi Gams will be played Thurs-
day. In the professional fraternity league yesterday's winners, Delta
Sigma Delta and Law Club A, will clash to decide who will take title
laurels.

Indoor Sports Time Again
AS FOOTBALL approaches its final days the indoor sports begin to
move into high gear. Volleyball is in its last week of league play,
swimming began last night, and handball starts next week. Earl
Riskey informs us that play should run pretty smoothly in these
sports regardless of weather conditions unless the Sports Building
develops a few leaks in its roof.
An eight team intramural hockey league has been formed to
accommodate the amateur pucksters on the campus. Four games
's will be played every Monday night in the Coliseum starting on
November 26. Wolverine hockey players John Matchefts and
John McKennell will do the police work to make sure a certain
amount of order prevails on the ice.
Attention all you lovely co-eds. Earl Riskey announces that due
to the success of past co-recreation nights the program has been
expanded to include bowling and golf. Added to volleyball, badminton
~ and swimming, this makes for a versatile program for interested
parties. Friday night is the time alloted for these festivities.
Too Much Volleyball?
IF YOU THINK that your instructor is a creep, saunter down to the
Sports Building before drawing any hasty conclusions. Chances
are he is an enthusiastic participant on one of the 16 faculty depart-
ment teams. These faculty boys do just about everything in the way
of intramural sports. Right now they are deeply involved in a vol-
leyball tournament, and pretty soon handball will be on the agenda.
Speaking of handball, there's a last call out for all handball and
paddleball doubles entrants. The schedules are due to be arranged
the last of the week, according to High Commissioner Earl Riskey,
and late-comers further complicate the scheduling process.

Stressed in Practice
A couple of strong incentives
to whip invading thrice-beaten
Northwestern Saturday spurred
Michigan's Wolverines as they
sloshed -around rain-soaked Ferry
Field in a long workout yesterday.
The Wolverines are eyeing a
convincing comeback from suc-
cessive setbacks at the hands of
Illinois and Cornell, and if they
are successful, they will also have
taken a big stride toward saving
the Maize and Blue from a ques-
tionable season.
. , MICHIGAN still has a chance
to at least share the Big Ten title,
providing it beats the Wildcats and
Ohio State, while either North-
western or the Buckeyes beat Illi-
nois. Ohio plays host to Illinois
this weekend, and observers figure
the Buckeyes are due for a good
performance.
Last year the same seemingly
hopeless situation prevailed --
Michigan needed two wins and
an Illinois loss for a champion-
ship - but Northwestern upset
the Champaign team and the
Wolverines grabbed the title by
beating OSU in the last game of
the season.
The pressure is on Michigan,
though, for Northwestern will
come to. Ann Arbor- strictly as a
spoiler underdog, having already
been knocked out of the league
race with three defeats in its last
three games with Purdue, Ohio
State, and Wisconsin. The Wild-
cats manager to whip Minnesota
for their only Conference victory.
THE BIG consideration in stop-
ping the Wildcats appears to be
quarterback Bob Burson. Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan respects Bur-
son's passing prowess and the
catching talents of ends Norm
Kragseth and Bill Kuehl.
Yesterday's drill devoted much
time to pass defense, with Dave
Tinkham, Don Oldham, and Bill
Putich in their familiar role as
defenders.

Scribes Pick Tim Green
Top M' Player of Week

I --Daily-Jack Bergstrom,
ALERT DEFENSE-The Wolverines may have picked ups some valuable defen-ive pointers from the
sound defense it ran into last week at Cornell, which they will be trying to imitate in this Saturday's
tilt With Northwestern. Above, Reg Marchant is shown returning one of Bill Putich's intercepted pass-
es from the Michigan 20-,yard line to the one early in the last quarter to set up' the last Big Red
touchdown.

By HERB COHEN
Cornell's 20-7 win over Michigan
last Saturday was certainly not
encouraging, but one bright spot
in the Wolverine picture was the
continued brilliance of Merritt
Green.
The. Michigan junior and Cor-
nell's Jackie Jaeckel were selected
by the sportswriters who choose
the "player of the week" for this
newspaper.
GREEN WAS named for his out-
standing defensive play on the
Wolverine line.
He was one of the few Michi-
gan players who performed at
their accustomed level.
When he recovered a Cornell
fumble on the Big Red 43-yard
line, he gave only more evidence
of his tremendous team spirit and
al laround drive.
Green, known as "Tim" to al-
most all his friends, won the Mey-
er W. Morton trophy last sharing
as the most improved player on
the Michigan squad. His superior
tackling ability and his knack for
doping out opponent's p l a y s
brought on many favorable words
from the Wolverine coaching staff.
JAECKEL, SUBBING for Rocco
Calvo, quarterbacked the Big Red
extremely well.
Calvo, Cornell's regular field
,general, and one of the leading
passers in the nation, was forced
to sit out most of the game be-
cause of an arm injury.
Jaeckel more than stepped in
and filled This shoes. He ran the
Cornell team with a steady, non-

erring, and at times even master.
ful hand.
THROUGHOUT THE first half,
hen Cornell seemed to be im-
pressed with the '"Wolverine press
notices, Jaeckel applied a firm
and conservative plan to his signal
calling.
But when the Big Red finally
discovered that Michigan was
not as powerful as their press
advances, Jaeckel decided to get
a little more daring. in his play
calling.
With strategic pass plays click-
ing for regular gains Cornell grad-"
ually pulled even and then ahead
of the ragged playing Wolverines.
All in all Jaeckel evenly bal-
anced the Big Red attack and
completed nine out of 16 attempt-
ed passes for 133 yards. The Ivy
Leaguers gained an almost identi-
cal total of 135 yards on the.
