SPORTS SLANTS
... By Ed Whipple

Phi Delta Theta, Sigma Chi
Keep Perfect Grid Records
Sabuco's Four Touchdown Passes Give
Phi Delts 27-0 Victory Over Theta Xi

SOME STRANGE (but interesting) literature turns up around the,
sports desk. This one, with a clipping scotch-taped to it, mater-
ialized yesterday from an anonymous correspondent in Virginia:
"The attached clipping was found among the 'Letters to the Edi-
tor' of the Washington (D.C.) Daily News of 2 October 1952.
'Dear Ev:
'I have just seen Penn's 1953 schedule and as an old Penn
myself, I'm shocked and disillusioned.
Apparently, the Midwesterner who somehow became our
university president has decreed that Penn's football needs em-
phasis, and should play teams from the land-grant schools.
'It always seemed to me that Penn's football was emphasized too
much. But a glance to the future shows our proud old school playing
such unlettered institutions as Vanderbilt, Penn State, California,
Ohio State, Michigan, and Notre Dame. There are contests with Army
and Navy in between, and, of course, Cornell.
'Gentlemen's Schools . .
FRANKLY, I'D FEEL a lot better if Penn would take her 11 best foot-
ball players to Franklin Field to play the best 11 men from our
traditional rivals-Princeton, Harvard, Yale, Columbia; the service
schools, Cornell, and such other gentlemen's schools of the East as
the schedule permits.
'However, Mr. Stassen appears to seek games with colleges field-
ing professional teams, and I understand he's seeing to it that Penn's
squad will contain sufficient professionals to hold their own with the
other gladiators.
'I think Penn should either junk this scheme-along with
its political president and his hired hands-or should go frankly
professional, resign from the Ivy League, and enter a league with
Maryland, Pitt, Penn State, Villanova and similarly shoddy
schools.
'I'd hate to see the latter happen, but it would at least be
the honest thing to do.-J.K.'"
Appears as how "old Penn himself J.K." don't have much truck
for us Midwesterners who play football professional-like. Not only
that, but he's misinformed on at least three points. About this busi-
ness of land-grant schools, o1' J.K. apparently has confused Michigan
with the up-state agricultural annex.
'Fantas y in .Fumble' .
SECOND, IF West Point is a "gentleman's school," it must have got
that way just since the 90-odd cadets departed by request for
practicing the Gentlemanly Art of Cheating on Exams. Third, any-
one who watched last Saturday's television performance "Fantasy in
Fumble" from Palo Alto would have to chortle at J.K.'s charge of pro-
fessionalism. That production didn't look too professional.
Being an undergrad at an "unlettered institution," I'm not
sure what the phrase means. We've been had, 12-8, if it means
"Pennsylvania" has more letters than "Michigan." I do know
Michigan has more alumni listed in Who's Who In America than
Penn does. Not bad, for a "shoddy school."
It's a crying shame Easterners like J.K. won't get it through
their craniums a school can promote a solid sports program and main-
tain some academic respectability at the same time.

By JIM DYGERT
Four touchdown passes by Gil
Sabuco gave Phi Delta Theta a
27-0 triumph over Theta Xi in
I-M football yesterday.
Sabuco passed twice to Don
MacLaren for tallies and once to
Duke Layland and Jan Wagenka.
Sabuco's deadly passing also ac-
counted for three extra points as
the Phi Delts remained undefeat-
ed in general fraternity play.
IN ANOTHER runaway, the elu-
sive running of Jack Speyer and
Gene Curtis enabled Tau Delta
Phi to trounce Kappa Nu, 30-0.
Building up a halftime lead of
21-0 on three touchdown runs, one
covering 40 yards, the Tau Delts
coaster to victory on sharp defen-
sive play.
Curtis, who also accounted for
an extra point, and Speyer were
the sparkplugs of an impres-
sive Tau Delt team. The final
two points of the game were
scored by Sam Kriegman, who
caught a Kappa Nu back behind
his own goal line on the last play
of the game.
Pi Lambda Phi downed Chi Psi,
12-0, on two passes from Jerry
Rovner to Jerry Hirsch in the end
zone. The first touchdown was set
up by a 40-yard pass from Rovner
to Sid Amster that put the ball
on the one-yard line. The Pi Lams
dominated the entire game, scor-
ing a touchdown in each half.
* * *
IN A BIZARRE contest, Phi
Gamma Delta bested Tau Kappa
Epsilon, 19-6. The first half was
played on a 40-yard field, although
play covered the regulation 60
yards in the second half. Jack
Stumpfig passed to Howard Liver-
ance for two tallies and Joe Mid-
dleton for one. John Nicita scored
once for TKE.
Alpha Sigma Phi trounced
Delta Chi, 27-0, with Dave Wieg-
el in the driver's seat. Wiegel
tossed four touchdown passes,
DID YOU KNOW ... that in
1908 Michigan withdrew from the
Western Conference in protest
against "retroactive provisions" of
certain Conference enactments.

two to Al Miller and one each to
John Worthington and Art Cox.
Sigma Chi captured its second
straight victory by winning over
Sigma Alpha Epsilon, 14-0. Bob
Littleson and Bill Ammerman
each scored a touchdown for Sigma
Chi.
In other games yesterday Lam-
bda Chi Alpha blanked Acacia,
Ray Team'
Don Hurst, '53 Ed., captain of
the Michigan cheerleaders, an-
nounced the names of the men
who will sparkplug the Wolver-
ine cheering section during the
present football season.
In addition to Hurst and the
new assistant head cheerleader
Lee Krumbholz, '54 Ed., the
roster includes Duncan Erley,
Grad., the retiring assistant
head cheerleader; Larry Price,
'53 Ed., returning letterman;
Herb Mueller, '54 L.S.&A.; Dave
Edwards, '55 E.; Frank Adams,
'55 E.; and Bill Winkler, '55 Ed.
13-0, Phi Kappa Psi edged Theta
Chi in overtime, 1-0, and Phi
Kappa Tau won on forfeit from
Trigon, as did Theta Delta Chi
from Delta Kappa Epsilon.
Betzig Sets

To Practice
With the seasons' opener still
three months off, the University of
Michigan wrestling team is already
starting to round into shape.
Now in its second week of prac-
tice, the matmen under the tutel-
ege of assistant Coach Bob Betzig
are working hard to better last
years' second place finish in the
Big Ten.
* * * ,
FORTY MEN are out and both
Betzig and Head Coach Cliff Keen
would like very much to see more
candidates, whether or not they
have had grappling experience.]
Sorely needed is a replacement for
Larry Nelson at 123 pounds and'
there are also several openings in
the heavier divisions.
A strong nucleus returns from
last years team, with the major-
ity of the returnees filling in the
137 and 147 pound divisions. Joe
Scandura, Andy Kaul, Jack
Cole and Jack Gallon are all
expected to see action in these
weight classes.
Both of Michigans Conference
champions, 130 pounder Snip Nal-
an and light heavyweight .Dick
O'Shaughnessy return to the
wrestling wars this year.
O'Shaughnessy, the first-string of-
fensive center on the WolverineI
grid squad might possibly move up
to the heavyweight division with
Ron Horne, Jim Ward or Harmon
Nine wrestling in his old spot. I
MILES LEE, aggressive 157-
pounder who fought his way to
third place in the NCAA wrestlingf
championships last year, returns
to his old spot again this season.
The popular junior was hampered
by injuries last season and big
things are expected of him in 1953.
The big hole remains at 167
pounds where last year's captain,
Bud Holcombe, wrestled last
year. Holcombe was an inspi-
rational leader and a great com-
petitor and will be sorely missed.
Harold Holt, Bronson Rumsey
and Ernie Graf, a native of Ann
Arbor are all vying for the vacated

spot and all have shown promise in
early workouts.
As was the case last year, Mich-
igan State, Illinois and Indiana
will furnish the major part of the
Wolverines' opposition in Confer-
ence circles as the Illini seek to
repeat as champs and the Spart-
ans shape up as pre-season fa-
vorites.

'Wings Face
NY Rangers
In First Tilt
DETROIT (P)--The Detroit Red
Wings' famous Abel-Lindsay-Howe
forward line will be only two-
thirds intact when the Wings open
defense of their National Hockey
League championship against the
New York Rangers tonight.
In the key center spot on the
No. 1 line will be Reg Sinclair, a
Ranger forward last year.
HE'LL be quite a stranger be-
tween the veteran Gordie Howe
and Ted Linsay. because he'll be
taking the place of reliable old
Sid Abel, a fixure at center ice
here as long as most fans can re-
member.
Abel left the Wings last win-
ter after 12 years to become
coach of the Chicago Black
Hawks. He played more games
at forward than any other play-
er in Detroit history.
Manager Jack Adams and Coach
Tommy Ivan decided to sandwich
Sinclair between Howe and Lind-
say on the so-called "production
line" even though he scored only
30 points for New York last sea-
son. The strategy was to keep to-
gether the Wing's second and
third line.
RED KELLY, Bob Goldham and
Marcel Pronovost will head up the
Wings' defense and agile Terry
Sawchuck will beindthe goaly
The only other Detroit regu-
lar who will be missing besides
Abel will be defenseman Leo
Reise, who went to the Rangers
in the Sinclair deal.
The injury jinx has hit the
Rangers early. Chuck Rayner,
their seasoned goalie, has not re-
covered fully from a leg injury
and probably will be supplanted
in the nets by Lorne "Gump" Wor-
sley, brought up from their Sas-
katoon Farm Club.

Pass defense was still the major
concern of the Wolverines yester-
day as they feverishly sought to
develop a workable meatus of foil-
ing Indiana's aerial wizard, Lou
D'Achille.
Russ Rescorla, the extra-point-
kicking fullback from Grand Ha-
ven, has been given intensive drill
at the defensive right halfback
spot vacated temporarily due to
Frank Howell's injury.
* * *
RESCORLA occupied the posi-
tion in the Stanford game and fa-
vorably impressed the coaches
with his performance. The stub-
born leg injury which has side-
lined Howell shows little sign of
abating before Saturday, but there
is an outside chance that the
speedy senior might see some ac-
tion.
Dave Tinkham has been work-
ing at the other defensive half-
back along with Ed Hickey and
Tony Branoff. None of the three
is over 5' 10", but all are fast,
which is a major requisite for
the defensive backfield.
Special attention has been giv-
en to Indiana's pass patterns,
which form the backbone of the
Hoosier attack. D'Achille likes to
pass, as isaevidenced by his 101
attempts last season.
IT WILL BE up to the Maize
and Blue secondary to stop the
pass-happy Pennsylvanian. D'Ach-
ille hails from Beaver Falls, deep
in the heart of the talent beds of
Western Pennsylvania which have
spawned so many of college foot-
ball's greatest performers.
Defensive line drills occupied
a good portion of yesterday's
rokout. Jack Blott will be try-
ing to strengthen a forward wall
which was unusually porous at
times in the game against Stan-
ford.
The Hoosiers' will again present
their line splitting fullback Gene

Gedman to the Michigan Stadium
audience. Gedman is double trou-
ble, sincehhe also catches passes-
leading the squad in receptions in
1951.
THE INJURY jinx still hangs
gloomily over Ferry Field. Tom
Witherspoon, Lowell Perry and
Thad Stanford are slowly rounding
into shape for Saturday's fracus.
Captain Merritt Green was re-
sponding slowly to treatment of a
turned ankle incurred in Tues-
day's session.

ACHILLES' HEEL:
'1M' Pass Defense Still Poses Problem

Some attention was also given
to the offense during yesterday's
practice. Bob Hurley and Fred
Baer continued to alternate at the
fullback post, while tne Teds, Kress
and Topor flashed their brilliance
both in the air and on the ground.
Topor's loss of the excess pound-
age which he carried last autumn
has made a whale of a difference
in his play at luarterback. He is
much faster than he was last
year, and still every bit as devas-
tating a blocker.

DID YOU KNOW ... that Mich-
igan has had 33 All-Americans
since 1903.

By DICK LEWIS
A five foot, eight inch Hoosier
will be hurling giant-sized aerial
bombs when invading Indiana
makes its annual pilgrimage to
Ann Arbor this Saturday.
The little fellow with the rifle-
like left arm is versatile Lou
D'Achille, Indiana quarterback
who kept his team out of the Big
Ten cellar the last two seasons
and set numerous records in the
process.
* * *
WHILE HIS CLUB finished
eighth in the conference in 1951
and last in 1950, D'Achille filled
the air with the amazing total of
233 passes, of which 109 were com-
plete for 1,412 yards and eight
touchdowns.
In two years and one game of
conference play, the venerable
southpaw from Beaver Falls, Pa.,
has had only five tosses inter-
cepted.
D'Achille first gained national
prominence two seasons ago when
as a sophomore he set all kinds
of records including the Western
Conference mark for a completed
pass play.
* * *
THIS WAS an eleven-yard toss
to halfback Bob Robertson Who
streaked for 80 more yards and a
touchdown against Iowa.
Little Louie attempted 38
passes against OSU in 1950 and
completed 20 for 232 yards) to
tie the league high established
by Northwestern's Otto Graham,
now with the professional Cleve-
land Browns.
Also in D'Achille's record book
is the total offense standard of

49, which equalled the mark set
by Hoosier Bob Hoernschemeyer.
. * .
ALTHOUGH Michigan held
D'Achille to two completions in
seven attempts last year, the 173-
pound tosser ranked as fourth best
in the Big Ten. In six loop games
he found the range on 23 of 43
throws for 308 yards and three
touchdowns.
On the full season, D'Achille
completed 33 of 70 for 432 yards
and four six pointers. He paced
the Hoosier in total offense with
521 yards gained in 111 plays
for a 4.7 average.
Indiana's all-time passer (he
completed 76 in 1950), who also
does the extra-point kicking for
the Bloomington eleven, has taken
up in the past two weeks where
he left off two years ago.
* * *
WHILE THE Hoosiers were fall-
ing to OSU and taking Iowa into
camp, D'Achille hit his receivers
12 times out of 21 attempts for
234 yards and two touchdowns.
