On Extra Point'
By JOHN LOWE
The brilliant pass receiving of
Dave Church sparked Wesleyan
to a 7-6 victory over a hard fight-
ing Forestry Club in Independent
League play yesterday.
Late in the last half Church
intercepted a Forester pass at mid-
field. He then made a fine catch
of Jerry Dangl's 20-yard pass to
put the ball on the Forester's 15
THE FORESTER'S line play
stiffened, however, and on third
down Wesleyan still had five yards
to go. Then Dangl faded to pass.
He spotted Church on the one
yard line, and let go with a bullet
Church gathered the ball in,
and spun away from the lone.
Forestry defender to score Wes-
leyan's only touchdown. Church
., then took a Dangl pass for the
Forestry Club wasn't beaten yet,
however. On the second play af-
ter the kickoff Larry Davis threw
a 30 yard pass to Jim McArdle
for a Forestry touchdown. On the
try for the extra point Forester's
passer was badly rushed, and he
couldn't get the ball away. This
failure to score the extra point
provided the margin of Wesleyan's
* * *
IN THE ONLY other game play-
ed yesterday Men's Christian Fel-
lowship defeated Fletcher Hall 7-0.
The only touchdown came on a
long pass from Bob Debryn to
The pass was taken by Didier
on the 20 yard line. From there he
ran the remaining 20 yards to
score. Debryn scored the extra
point on an end around.
Rocky Ryan and Cliff Wald-
beser form a pair of highly rat-
ed targets for Falkenstein's
tosses. Ryan has caught- 11 for
201 yards and Waldbeser has
snagged five for 68 yards.
Michigan has yet to return to
the form that it displayed in its
opening 50-0 rout over the Uni-
versity of Washington. The Wol-
verines have compiled a five and
one won-lost record, but they
haven't been very impressive in
victory and looked mediocre in
their one road defeat at Minne-
apolistwo weeks ago.
ONCE again they will sport the
traditionally "jinxed" white jer-
seys as they attempt to outguess
the experts. All week long the Wol-
verines concentrated on defense
designed to stop the power-
laden Illini, while placing less
emphasis on their varied offense
which has turned in a commend-
able job so far this season.
Whether Michigan will be
able to stop Illinois will onlyhbe
decided after the kickoff here
at 1:30 this afternoon. Michi-
gan's offense will be once again
led by the startng backfield
combination of quarterback Lou
Baldacci, tailback Ted Kress,
wingback Tony Branoff and full-
back Dick Balzhiser.
The sharp-passing Duncan Mc-
Donald and hard-running Bob
Hurley both are counted on for
offensive punch. End Bob Topp,
who last week rated as 14th among
the nation's pass receivers with 17
snared for 283 yards and two
touchdowns, teams with Gene
Knutson at the starting ends for
the seventh consecutive game.
THE WHOLE starting unit with
the exception of John Morrow,'
still subbing for Captain Dick
O'Shaughnessy at center,will be
the same that has opened every
game. A hardier O'Shaughnessy,
his ankle finally mended and a sol-
id Art Walker-all over his leg
trouble, will aid the Wolverines
against Illinois today.
Topp, Baldacci, Morrow and
guard Ted Cachey, all bruised in
the 24-14 conquest of Pennsylva-
nia are reported in good shape for
the game. Michigan took a brief
workout here yesterday at the Il-
lini Stadium to get "land legs"
back after the plane ride from

Gridders Bracing for 'M',
Says Illinois Sports Editor
By LOU KESSEY
Daily Illini Sports Editor
CHAMPAIGN - Illinois is pre-
paring for Michigan harder than
it has for any other opponent this
Coach Ray Eliot and his team
now know they have an outstand-
ing chance to win the Big Ten
crown and get the Rose Bowl nod.
Eliot considers Michigan the big-
gest obstacle on the road to the
*' * *
THE ILLINI have been the sur-
prise of the Big Ten this season.
Even Eliot cannot give a reason
for the tremendous showing the
Illini have made.
Halfbacks J. C. Caroline and
Mickey Bates have given Illi-
nois the running punch it lacked
a year ago, but the biggest im-
provement has been in the line.
About the only 'game that the
Illinois linemen looked good in last
fall was the 22-13 upset of Michi-
gan. The line has been playing
that same way this year.
* * *
CAROLINE, who set a new rush-
ing record for Illinois against Pur-
due Saturday, is a different type
runner than most break away ar-
tists. The Columbia, S.C. speed-
ster is 6-0 tall and has a stride
resembling Li'l Abner's.
Although he is very shifty in
the open field, he also hits hard
on line plunges. Caroline is hard
to pull down and often gains an
extra two or three yards by
running backwards after being
spun around by a defender.
Bates, whose real weight is 206,
keeps the defense true by doing
most of his running up the middle.
For his weight he is very fast,
which he showed in scampering-
35 yards for a touchdown against
* * *
BATES AND Caroline comple-
ment each, other very well. Ohio
State was set for Caroline, but it
had little advance warning about
Bates. When the Bucks stopped
Caroline on the wide plays, Bates
went up the middle.
Another surprise in the Illi-
nois backfield is quarterback,
Elry Falkenstein. When Tom
O'Connell graduated last year,
quarterback became one of the
worst manned posts on the team.
Falkenstein had been playing
right behind O'Connell, but had
not been too effective during
his brief appearances.
Sophomore Em Lindbeck won
the starting assignment from Fal-
kenstein before the opener with
Nebraska. But Falkenstein won
the job back again with his fine
play in the Stanford game.
* * *
FALKENSTEIN is not nearly the
passer that O'Connell was, but is
fairly accurate. He is very adept
at faking and surprisingly enough
is one of the best defense men in
the Illini backfield.
Stan Wallace, the regular full-
back, will miss the game Satur-
day because of a knee injury.
Ken Miller, who made several
long runs against Michigan a
year ago, will fill in at fullback.
Miller is the top Illini punter,
but yields the punting duties to
Caroline when Wallace is in the
Much of the success of the Illini
has been due to the fine play of
the guards. In Eliot's offense the
guards pull out and run interfer-
ence. Jan Smid and John Bauer
have filled the bill for Illinois as
* * *
BAUER, HOWEVER, will miss
the Michigan game with a knee
injury. Bucky Tate will take over
for Bauer. Wally Vernasco is an-
other top guard that has seen a
lot of action. He is just returning
to action after being out with a
The Illini have had little trouble
bowling over five straight oppon-
ents since it tied Nebraska, 21-21,
on opening day. Although Illinois
only beat Syracuse, 20-13, Eliot's
team was not up for the game as
the Orangemen were.
Syracuse, however, did throw
one of the toughest defenses we've
seen this year against Illinois.

CHICAGO-The Big Ten foot-
ball race reaches the cut-throat
stage today with four top teams
having a chance to feed or starve
their title hopes.
The day provides a full program
of five conference games.
THE GAME of the day is un-
beaten Illinois (3-0) stand against
Michigan (2-1) before a capacity
71,119 at Memorial Stadium inj
With the winner figuring to
profit from a possible Illinois
stumble, Michigan State and
Ohio State, each with a 3-1
record, collide before 82,000 at
Columbus, Ohio. The Buckeyes
play seven conference games,
while Illinois, Michigan and
Michigan State each play six.
Wisconsin, with a 2-1 record,
also can keep a finger in the title
pie by disposing of Northwestern
(0-3) at Evanston, Ill., in a game
to be televised throughout the

THE OTHER two league con-
tests send Iowa (1-3) to Purdue
(1-2) and Indiana (0-3) to Min-
The Illini, geared by half-
backs J. C. Caroline and Mickey
Bates, are seeking an unprece-
dented fourth straight victory
over Michigan. After the Wol-
verines, the Illini play Wiscon-
sin and Northwestern.
Michigan State's lone setback
of the season was a startling 6-0I
upset by Purdue, while Ohio
State's sole conference defeat was
a 41-20 spanking by Illinois.
