CHICAGO-(A)-Two 18-year-
old rookies with brawn and speed
and a whip-armed, veteran cap-
tured top statistical honors in the
1951 Big Ten football race in
which 13 individual performance
marks were broke nor tied.

Strauss Tank
Rips Gomberg
Strauss House displayed a pow-
erhouse of swimming strength to
trounce a thoroughly outclassed
Gomberg tank team, 43-14, last
night at the Intramural pool.
Strauss was never headed as the
100-yard free style relay team,
composed of D o n Hammond,
George Schatz, Fred Hohwart, and
Don Schieaele, swept past the
Gomberg squad easily. George
Schatz and Fred Hamil came back
in the 50-yard free style to cop
first and second, respectively.

DEN SCHMIEAEKE, along with
Murray Schwartzberg, continued
the torrid pace when they cap-
tured first and second in the 25-
yard backstroke, respectively.
Strauss finished its victory pa-
rade with a double triumph in the
25-yard breaststroke and a run-
away of the 75-yard medley relay
to complete its scoring.

KELSEY HOUSE was edged,29-
27, by Williams House in a nip
and tuck battle.
Williams drew first blood with
a quick triumph by the 100-yard
relay team of Bob Bolt, Don
Anderson, Barret Broad, and
Tom Johnson.
Kelsey rallied to sweep the 25-
yard breaststroke when Andy
Samelsock broke stroke and was
Kelsey forged ahead with a one,
two finish in the 25-yard free
style by Bob Bolt and Barret
Broad, but Ton Johnson and
Allan Butterworth countered with
a first and third in the backstroke
that was the margin of victory.

senior quarterback Johnny Coatta
repeated as Big Ten passing cham-
pion with four new aerial records.
The 205-pound Ameche, ac-
curately nick-named the horse,
ripped through enemy lines for
774 yards, toppling the record
set in 1949 by halfback Johnny
Karras of Illinois. Karras, a
senior this year, wound up sev-
enth in rushing with 359 yards.
Ameche's feat of 147 carries in
seven games also was a new rec-
ord, surpassing the 1942 record of
134 tries by Ohio State's Gene

THE OFFICIAL league statistics
released yesterday credited 185-
pound Giel with 1,079 yards by
passing and rushing in six games.
That bettered the seven-game to-
tal of 1,039 which gave Michigan's
Bob Chappius the previous record
in 1946.
Giel, a superb all-around back
who also punted and caught
passes for the Gophers, had a
record-breaking per game total
offense average of 194.8, break-
ing Chappuis' 1947 mark of

Giel finished second to Ameche
in rushing with 651 yards in 123
tries for the same average as
Ameche, 5.3. Third best ball-car-
rier was senior fullback Bill Rei-
chardt of Iowa with 124 tries for
577 yards and a 4.7 average.
COATTA'S 76 completions on
146 passes, both records, amassed
1,030 yards, far exceeding the old
record of 714 set by Northwestern's
Otto Graham, now kingpin of the
Cleveland Browns, in 1942. The
brilliant Badger quarterback's
game average was 147.1, scrapping
the record of 128.8 set in 1950 by
Indiana's Lou D'Achille.
Other new records included 12
kickoff returns and 299 yards on
those returns by Minnesota full-
back Ron Engel. Marks were tied
by safety Al Brosky of Illinois with
seven pass interceptions, halfback
Bill Lane of Wisconsin with 18
punt returns, and Coatta and VicI
Janowicz of Ohio State with twoI
field goals each.

had the best rushing average 7.1
and led in pass receiving with 16
catches for 372 yards. Iowa's
Chuck Denning had the best punt-
ing average, 38.0 yards.

Michigan's 1951-52 basketball
schedule, which begins Saturday
at Central Michigan and ends with
Purdue early in March, is loaded
with stumbling blocks, most of
them in the form of other Big Ten
cage squads.
If Coach Ernie McCoy's hard-

will have to do so against some
of the best cage teams in the na-

OHIO STATE, remembering the
Stanford game when Johnson was
again forced to leave, began to
run through the weak spot in the
Michigan line, left tackle, the spot
usually occupied by Johnson.
Time and again the hard-
running Buckeye backs ran off
their own right tackle ^,d time
and again they gained yardage.
Finally they were halted, deep
in Michigan territory.
Johnson, being worked on con-
stantly by the Michigan trainer,

game. And when he did the Mich-

Sherwin Gandee, Ohio State's
player of the week was also cit-
ed for his outstanding defensive
work at the left end's position.
Gandee, a 6'O 204 pound senior
from Akron, Ohio, was a standout
for the Buckeyes all day.
Although Michigan completed a
goodly number of their passes, the
ones they didn't complete can
largely be traced back to Gandee.

following the same action taken
by Drake University Tuesday
Bradley's withdrawal, voted by
the school's faculty athletic com-
mittee, reduced the Conference to
six members-Oklahoma A & M,
Houston, Detroit, Tulsa, St. Louis
and Wichita.
DRAKE ENDED 43 years of
Conference membership because
of the League's failure to act'on a
protest in the widely-publicized
"Bright case." Bradley entered
the Conference three years ago.
Bradley, while quitting in
sympathy, cited several other
reasons. One is that Bradley
has gone begging for Conference
football games. Drake and Wi-
chita were the only members on
Bradley's 1952 grid schedule.
Another stemmed from the Con-
ference voiding of a Bradley bas-
ketball and one baseball champ-
ionship after several former Brad-
ley basketball players were impli-
cated in the point-rigging scandal,
THE BRADLEY faculty com-
mittee met yesterday afternoon to
discuss withdrawal from the Con-
ference. After a brief adjourn-
ment for dinner, the discussion
continued last night.
The committee simply an-
nounced it had voted the with-
drawal and said a statement
covering its decision would be
given out later.
The move had been suggested
to the council by Bradley's presi-
dent, David B. Owen.
