' Ben Beams
Over Team's'
Decisive Win
Oosterbaan Praisesf
Stalwart 'M' Defenset
By ED WHIPPLE1
Daily Sports Editor
The two dressing rooms at the
end of the tunnel under the Stad-
ium are scarcely 25 feet from each
other physically, but spiritually
they were poles apart around 4:45
yesterday afternoon.
On the north side, a beaming
Bennie Oosterbaan told reporters,
"It was our best game of the sea-
son in all ways-especially on de-
fense." That was a lot of state-
ment, coming from Oosterbaan,
who usually pursues the philoso-
phy of little comment. But he
wasn't through.
* * *
> SOMEONE asked what made
the difference between the two
teams. Oosterbaan shot back,
9 "Fight." "We never let down, even
after Purdue grabbed that big
10-point lead. We just kept plug-
ging away and taking advantage
of the breaks that came our way."
Oosterbaan declined to name
any outstanding players, be-
cause he "thought every man
on the team showed well today."
The Wolverine mentor also ex-
plained why wingback Frank How-
ell was handed the ball three plays
in succession to score the clinch-
ing touchdown. "We wanted
Franke to have that touchdown,
because it's the first one he's ever
scored for Michigan."
* * *
HOWELL, a senior who has
played for three seasons, was vis-
ibly pleased by the gesture. An-
other senior, Don Oldham, was
extra jovial also. He had reason
to be. It was his pass interception
and 25 yard runback that smashed
Purdue's last-ditch effort and set
up Howell's touchdown.
Oldham also intercepted one
other pass, in addition to batting
down several more on important
occasions. Oldham's perform-
ance yesterday was probably his
best as a Wolverine.
Don Dugger, the scrappy guard,
was impressed with the fight and
drive the Boilermakers showed.
"That was a mighty tough Purdue
outfit," he declared. Dugger was
one of a host of defensive stand-
outs that kept Purdue from roll-
ing up a big advantage during the
first half.
OOSTERBAAN reported the only
Michigan injuries were to tackle
Jim Balog and guard Ron Wil-
liams. Both injured ankles.
Then there was the south side
of the tunnel-the Purdue dress-
ing room. Coach Stu Holcombe
wouldn't let in any reporters un-
til he and his team had flown
the coop, so to speak.
The only person in the Purdue
dressing room was a trainer. The
rest were on buses headed for
Willow Run Airport and the flight
back to Lafayette when reporters
entered.
Montreal, Chicago
In NHL Deadlock
By The Associated Press
MONTREAL - Veteran Elmer
Lach scored all of the goals as the
Montreal Canadiens downed the

Boston Bruins, 2-0.
The shutout was the second of
the National Hockey League sea-
son for Gerry McNeill.
TORONTO - The Chicago
Blackhawks move into a first place
National Hockey League tie .with
Montreal last night by defeating
the Toronto Maple Leafs, erstwhile
pacesetters, 3-1, on the strength
of Pete Babando's two goals.

yards to the Purdue three, where
they were halted one yard shy of
a first down. .
* * *
MICHIGAN held its narrow
margin until 12:51 of the final
stanza, at which time it annexed
its third score to sew up the con-
test.
Don Oldham, who was at his
defensive best during the clash,
intercepted a Purdue aerial on
the Boilermaker 42 and return-
ed the ball to the five.
Halfback Frankie Howell lung-
ed into paydirt territory on his
third carry for the first touch-
down of his college career. Russ
Rescorla booted the last of his
three conversions to end the day's
scoring.

THE GAME started out like it
was going to be a repetition of
Don't Cry. Stu

STATISTICS
Michigan Purdue

to gain its first Ann Arbor vic-
tory, recovered Perry's fumble of
a punt on the Michigan 16 yard
line.
With fullback Max Schmaling
doing the bulk of the work, the
Boilermakers moved to their
first score in five plays, Schmal-
ing driving over from two yards
out. Samuels converted, and it
looked like a bad day for Bennie
Oosterbaan's charges.
It looked even worse when Boil-
ermaker Ed Zembal intercepted a
Kressrepassat midfield three plays
later. Purdue's Dale Samuels be-
gan threading needles with his
tosses and the ball was moved to
the Michigan 16, where the drive
stalled.
S* *
ON FOURTH down, reserve full-
back Jim Reichert came off the
bench to boot a field goal and
Purdue had assumed a command-
ing 10-0 lead with 12 seconds
elapsed in the second period.
It was at this point that the
Wolverines caught fire. Taking
th'e ensuing kickoff the Maize
and Blue marched 66 yards in
an even dozen plays to come

ana aggregation. j
Kress, Branoff and Balzhiser
were the workhorses of the drivel
with Branoff tallying the TD. The
big break of the series came when
the riveters were detected holding
Perry at the line of scrimmage and
were assessed 15 yards for the in-
fraction, the ball winding up on
the three yard stripe.E
STATISTICALLY Purdue out-.
played the Wolverines, piling up
12 first downs to Michigan's 10'
and accumulating 248 totalyards
to 226 for the Maize and Blue.
This was due primarily to the
first half activities when Mich-
igan only picked up four first
downs, two of which came by
way of penalties.
The contest featured no out-
standing stars for the Wolverines.
Everybody was a star once the
throttle was pulled out. The de-
fensive platoon was particularly
effective in the second half, liter-
ally rushing Samuels off his feet
and forcing him to throw hur-
riedly.
It was, as Fielding Yost used to
say, "a real Michigan afternoon."

Here are some "IFS" on next'
week's games that will determine
the Big Ten champion (or cham-
pions) and a Rose Bowl represen-
tative. In order of probable oc-
currence -
If Wisconsin beats Minnesota
and Michigan beats OSU, the two
winners would tie for the Confer-
ence championship. Rose Bowl
representative would be selected
by vote of Conference members.
You try to figure out what that
choice would be;
* * *
IF MICHIGAN wins and Wis-
consin loses, the Wolverines are
undisputed champions and prob-

ably Rose Bowl representatives as
well;
If Wisconsin wins and Michi-
gan loses, the Badgers are un-
disputedchamps and probably
Pasadena-bound;
If Michigan and Wisconsin both
lose, and Purdue defeats Indiana,
the Boilermakers and Minnesota
would tie for the championship.
Pasadena trip would again be
awarded by vote of Conference;
If Michigan, Wisconsin, and
Purdue lose, Minnesota would be
undisputed champ and probable
Rose Bowl representative;
And if any of those games end
in ties, it could cause still more
confusion .. .
