Unbeaten Marks at Stakej

NEW YORK -(R)-Saturday's
principal football explosions-four
of them-will occur at Palo Alto,
Calif.; Columbus, Ohio; Austin,
Texas, and Oxford, Miss.
All four are guaranteed to be
loud and laden with flying bodies.
* *? *
POSSIBLY outstanding is the
clash at Palo Alto between Stan-
ford's all-victorious Indians and
Oregon State's fast-coming young
Beavers, with the West Coast's
Rose Bowl bid at stake. The In-
dians, winners over Southern Cali-
fornia in one of last week's most
thrilling duels, can clinch the prize
by posting their ninth straight

tion's true hotbeds of football,

will automatically, become the
challenging team in the Rose
Down in Austin the surprising
Texas Christian Horned Frogs,
winners of three straight South-
west Conference games, bang into
the Texas Longhorns, who got
their lumps last week from Baylor.
AT OXFORD, deep in the Old
South, Mississippi's hot-and-cold
warriors are preparing what they
hope will prove a painful ambush

for the all-conquering volunteers
of Tennessee. Old Miss capped
an otherwise ordinary record by
battering a tough Auburn team,
39-14, last week.
Those are the top four, the
games which will have the most
bearing on the make-up of the
New Year's Day contests, but
there are plenty of others of
high sectional voltage as the
1951 season nears its close.
For instance, vying for the in-
terest of Southern fans is the an-
nual struggle between Georgia
Tech and Alabama at Birming-

he has his Wolverine grid charges

The Maize and Blue squad will
have to be up for this contest be-
cause they will be meeting a North-
western team that has dropped
three games in a row, and will be
even more eager to regain their
winning ways.
FRESH IN THE minds of the
Michigan men is last week's defeat
at the hands of an equally victory
hungry and fired up Cornell team
that had two consecutive defeats
behind them.
Of great concern to the Wild-
cats is that their three losses
have all been in Conference play
in which they have a 1-3 record.
This is the exact reverse of the
Wolverines' Big Ten record but
oddly enough the teams have
identical 3-4 overall won and
lost results.
The Wildcats have attempted an
average of 27 passes per game this
season but even though they have
completed only a third of these at-
tempts the Wolverines have been
made pass conscious and aware of
the talents of quarterback . Bob
Burson throughout the week's

ON THE offensive side, Frank
Howell is expected to see quite
a bit of action tomorrow as he re-

ATO Staves Of f Phi Gam Bid
In Final Minutes To Win, 13-6
A desperate goal line stand in the final minutes of play by ATO
yesterday stopped a determined Phi Gamma Delta scoring bid and
brought the ATO's a 13-6 win and the right to meet Sigma Chi next
week for the fraternity championship.
Faced with stopping the Phi Gam's, who had a first down on the
one yard line, the ATO 2-5 defense broke up three short passes by
Joe Middleton and then stopped Middleton on a left end sweep on
the one to take the ball over with thirty five seconds remaining.
* * * *
THE GAME, A REMATCH for the team who played to a scoreless
tie last week in a blizzard, started fast. Howard Maturen, the big gun
in the ATO attack, threw two successful passes after the opening kick-
off to move the ball to the Phi Gam ten.
On second down, Maturen pitched to John McIntyre for a
score and then ran the ball over for the extra point. A third
down pass by Middleton from the eleven to Chuck Murray, who
went high in the end zone to nab it, brought the Phi Gam's their
acore. Shortly latter Middleton was stopped on the one after
running the ball from the ATO fifteen on forth down.
Don Weir took a fifteen yard pass from Maturen for the ATO
second score after Bud Richner set it up on a 30 yard pass from

Mays Chosen
Best Rookies
NEW YORK -(P)- Gil Mac-
Dougald of the New York Yankees
and Willie Mays of the New York'
Giants today were named Ameri-
can and National League "Rookies
of the Year" by a 24-man commit-
tee of the Baseball Writers Associ-
ation of America.
MacDougald's selection over Or-
estes (Minnie) Minoso of the Chi-
cago White.Sox, 13-11, was some-
what of a surprise. Minoso out-
hit the Yankee second baseman-
third baseman .326 to .306 and led
the league with 14 triples and 31
stolen bases.
Centerfielder Mays of the pen-
nant-winning Giants drew the ex-
pected overwhelming vote despite
his late season slump. The 20-
year-old from Birmingham, Ala.,
had 18 votes. Chet Nichols, Bos-
ton's flashy southpaw pitcher, had
four votes and Clem Labine,
Brooklyn righthander, had two.
With MacDougald and Mays as
top rookies and Yankee Yogi Ber-
ra and Brooklyn's Roy Campan-
ella most valuable, the three New
York teams swept all -the honors.
MacDougald's feat of being the
only member of the World Cham-
pion Yanks to hit over .300 at-
tracted much attention to the 22-
year-old freshman.

The Wolverines cross-country
squad shoots for its first Big Ten
Championship since 1922 today,
but chances of coming out on top
in the Western Conference meet
in Chicago appear slim for the
Michigan seven.
Clear skies and temperatures
ranging from forty to fifty-de-
grees are predicted for the 37th
annual renewal to be held at
Washington Park this morning at

Heyliger Directs Junior Hockey Loop

k I

Vic Heyliger, a man who has
been very busy in recent years
coaching Michigan hockey teams
to national honors, is spreading
his talents to the younger set now.
The genial Wolverine mentor is
heading a group of interested per-
sons in the formation of a junior
hockey league in Ann Arbor to be
composed of boys in the 15-year-
old and under age groups.

THE FIRST STEPS in the or-
ganization of the new league will
be undertaken this evening at the
Michigan Ice Rink at 7:30. Hey-
liger is hoping that all boys inter-
ested in the program along with
their parents attend the meeting
so that a thorough discussion of
the plan can be made with them.
A short scrimmage between
members of the Michigan var-
sity team is planned as a feature
of general interest for the young

McCoy Heads West To Scout
Stanford for Big Ten Teams

Ernie McCoy, head of the Mich-
igan scouting staff has embarked
on a trip to Palo Alto California
to scout Stanford for this year's
Rose Bowl contest.
The information that McCoy is
seeking will be of no direct value
to Michigan since no matter what
happens in the rest of this season,
the Wolverines are ineligible for
participation in the New Years
Day spectacle. The theory is that
McCoy's trip was authorized by
the Big Ten headquarters in Chi-
McCOY, ONE of the leading
scouts in the Western Conference
and the nation was the logical
choice for gathering important
information for the big intersec-
tional game, especially since he
has already observed Stanford a
regular season opponent of Mich-

Involved in the scouting trip
is an unusual tale of turn about.
Last year Coach Oosterbaan was
forced to rely on Illinois scouts
for his information about Cali-
fornia since the 'M' brain trust
didn't think our conference
chances were bright enough to
warrant a scouting expedition.
If the Big Ten standings remain
as they are now at the time of this
writing McCoy will have the op-
portunity to return the favor to
the Illini and perhaps aid them
to defeat Stanford at Pasadena..
The whole situation gives a
wonderful picture of brotherly love
in the Big Ten. The only thing
that mars the scene is the prob-
lem asking whether or not the
Michigan basketball team, now in
its fifth week of practice will suf-
fer as much as the Illinois foot-
ball team will benefit from\ Mc-
Coy's western trip.

After the varsity workout, Hey-
liger intends to discuss the age re-
quirements, the matter of equip-
ment for the junior-sized players,
the times the hockey rink will be
available for use, and the general
objectives and advantages of the
* * *
THE WAY PLANS are now laid
out the league will be divided into
three groups arranged according
to age. Boys in the 13 to 15 year-
old group will play in the "Mid-
get" division, eleven to 13 year-
olds in the "Pee Wee" class and
those eleven and under will com-
pete in the "Bantam" division.
The youngsters will be assured
of first-class coaching. Ex-Wolver-
ine stars such as former goalies
Jack McDonald and Jack MacIn-
nes, last year's lineman Al Bassey
along with Dan Quirk, a Michigan
great back in the early twenties
and now mayor of Ypsilanti, will
all be on hand to teach the game
to the boys.
Practice sessions will be held at
the Coliseum during its inactive
hours or on outside rinks when the
weather permits.
