Detroit, Ran

The Los Angeles Rams and the
Detroit Lions remained tied for
the lead in the Western Confer-
ence of the National Football
League as both teams won Sun-
day to set the stage for their big
battle at Los Angeles this week.
The Lions overcame a ten point
deficit to defeat the San Fran-
cisco Forty-Niners, 14-10. Bobby
Layne passed to Dorn Dibble for
53 yards and a touchdown early
in the game and then won the
contest for Detroit by hitting Ollie
Cline for the final score.

after that, the best the losers could
do was a 32-yard field goal by
0ordon Soltau.
Los Angeles, despite a 21-point
second quarter, had to score
twice in the last period to break
a tie and beat the Chicago
Bears, 38-24. Two sensational

. ..aids Purdue TD drive
* *
MSC Upset;
Illini Leads
Saturday brings to mind the old
adage about any Big Ten football
team being able to beat any oth-
er Conference squad on any giv-
en Saturday-and it happened.
With the Rose Bowl looming on
the horizon the Big Ten picture
was turned completely askew as a
determined Purdue eleven pro-
duced one of its "once-a-season"
upsets, breaking Michigan State's
28-game winning streak, 6-0.
MEANWHILE, the Wolverines
were being decisively thrashed by
a 22-0 margin at Minneapolis and
OSU barely squeaked by Wiscon-
sin, 20-19.
After completely handcuffing
the Spartan offensive and play-
ing a scoreless battle for three
periods, Purdue chalked up the
only marker of the game when
substitute fullback Dan Pobo-
jewski crashed over on the third
play of the final period.
The touchdown was set up when
State quarterback, Tom Yewcic,
roughed kicker Red Brock on a
fourth down punt at the end of
the third quarter. This gave the
Boilermakers a first down and en-
abled them to roll on their TD
OHIO STATE had to bounce
back with two last period touch-
downs to beat out the Badgers,
20-19, and still stood a chance of
losing in the final seconds, Wis-
consin missing on an attempted
field goal.
Bob Watkins gathered 134
yards on the ground and tallied
one OSU marker; Howard Cas-
sady accounted for two more.
Competing in a non-conference
game the Illini, previously brought
to the limelight by their two "sen-
sational" sophomore backs Mickey
Bates and J. C. Caroline, were
stopped cold by a big Syracuse line.
HAD IT NOT been for full-
back Stan Wallace, who galloped
55 yards for a score in the third
quarter and went on a 44-yard
spree in the final chapter, Illinois
never would have been able to tri-
umph, 20-13. Due to MS's and
Michigan's defeats,tIllinois took
over the top spot in the Big Ten.
Michigan's next opponent, Penn-
sylvania showed more brilliance
Saturday than it had exhibited
thus far this season, edging a
favored Navy squad, 9-6, on a 35-
yard field goal from the toe of
Penn quarterback Ed Gramigna in
the final minute of play.

Lloyd led by the accurate pass-
ing of Jack Watson scored its,
fourth straight victory as it beat
Kelsey, 26-0.
Watson initiated the scoring
for Lloyd when he threw a 40-
yard touchdown pass to Reed
Wagstaff, his first of three scoring
aerials, in the first half. Lloyd's
next score came in the second half
when Watson hit Don Poloskey for
six points and then tossed to Po-
loskey for the extra point.
* * *
WITH WATSON pacing the at-
tack, Lloyd drove the length of
the field and finally scored from
ten yards out on a pass from Wat-
son to Poloskey. Lloyd made it
19-0 on a pass from Watson to]
Dick Rapp. The last score of the]
game came when Wagstaff inter-
cepted a desperation Kelsey pass
and scampered 35 yards for the
final touchdown.
Lloyd now enters the quad
playoffs scheduled for next week.
It ended the regular season un-
defeated and unscored upon.

SPIELDENNER put Winchell
out in front when he ran the kick-
off back 40 yards for a touchdown.'
Reinstra then went to work for
Winchell and pitched a 30-yard
scoring pass to Chuck Ciotti and
hit Ciotti again in the second
half on a short pass over the mid-
dle. Reinstra made the extra point
good when he threw a perfect
strike to Frank Skrbina in the
end zone.
Adams made it three for three
in the shutout department when
it blanked Reeves. 13-0. Fritz
Meyers was the big gun for Ad-
ams as he threw a touchdown
pass to Julian France which cov-
ered 50 yards and ran 20 yards
for the other score. The thir-
teenth point was made on a pass
from Meyers to France.
Huber broke a scoreless dead-
lock on the last play of the game
to defeat Anderson, 6-0. Huber's
right halfback, Bob Leacock, with
seconds remaining in the ball
game, raced around his own right
end for the winning touchdown.

WITH LOU Meggesi throwing
three touchdown passes, Gomberg
took Williams in stride, 20-6. This
was Gomberg's fourth straight
league win and gave it the right

Wenley on a forfeit and Hinsdale

igan has faced since Red Grange,
and the other is that the final
score might ha-ve been in the for-
ties if the Wolverines had not re-
tained their famous poise under
the most trying conditions.
To call Giel the player of the
week is an understatement that
would rank somewhere between
calling Babe Ruth a good baseball
player and calling the Michigan
Band a passable musical organiza-
GIEL RAN with deception, pass-
ed with deadly accuracy, played
defense with reckless abandon, and
was throughout the long afternoon
the leader of the fired-up Gopher
Fritz Crisler said he could
have taken tickets and led the
band too, if time had allowed.
We are not inclined to doubt
that appraisal, however, as Cris-
ler himself pointed out, there
were ten other men in maroon
and gold on the field in support
of the great tailback.
Perhaps the only thing that can
be said in Michigan's favor con-
cerning the game is the observa-
tion that the varsity neverylost
its poise, even when everything
seemed to be going against it. This
is a quality that Michigan teams
have had since the days of Field-
ing Yost, and it vas never needed
more than on Saturday at Me-
morial Stadium.
A LESSER team would have
folded up completely and been
slaughtered as were the Washing-
ton Huskies here on opening day

Michigan has a definite weak-
ness at the linebacker positions,
and that weakness was exploited
with disasterous results by Coach
Wes. Fesler's Gophers. The line-
backer problem is strictly one of
inexperience. Dick Balzhiser, John
Morrow, Lou Baldacci and John

they had more time to gain ex-

perience, but since none had ever

they must be tested under game
This week of practice will un-
doubtedly be devoted to work on

day's exhibition at Minneapolis
was probably the poorest in that
