11OST PENN STATE, three times
Eastern champion and unbeaten
in three seasons of dual meet com-
petition, walked off with the team
championship ahead of favored
Oklahoma, which failed to win a
single individual crown.
Penn State's victory, in one of
the closest meets in history,
gave the East its first NCAA
championship in the 25-year
history of the tourney.
The only other Wolverine to get
past Friday's elimination rounds,
177-pound Dick O'Shaughnessy,
was blanked, 4-0, in the semi-
gnals by Al Paulekas of Army.

NALAN copped his semifinal

The University of Missouri will
fill the opening date on the 1955
Michigan football schedule.
Announcement that the Tigers
will inaugurate the Wolverines'
nine game card on September 24,
was made yesterday by Athletic
Director H. O. "Fritz" Crisler.
* * *
THE GAME has been arranged
on a one-year basis, and marks
the first meeting between the
schools. The Tigers have appeared
on Michigan's schedule in basket-
ball in recent years.
Missouri is coached by Don
Faurot, originator of the famed
"Split T" formation, which char-
acterizes the play of so many
Big Seven and Southwest con-
ference teams today.
The Tigers lost their only con-
ferergce game last fall to the
champion Sooners of Oklahoma.
A bit of irony in that loss was
the fact that Faurot had taught
Oklahoma's coach Bud Wilkinson
the "Split T" while both were in
the Navy during the last war. It
was with the "Split T" that Wil-
kinson's team defeated Missouri
to take the championship of the
After meeting Missouri in the
opener Michigan will have an open
date, which may be filled, then
will play Michigan State, North-
western, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois,
Indiana and Ohio State. There is
a possibility that the open date
may be taken by a game with
Army in Yankee Stadium, but
that is only conjecture at this
