Wolverine Cagers Clip OSU, 85-76
By WARREN WERTHEIMERv
Big Ten victory number one was
racked up last night by Michigan's
cagers as they withstood a fourthI
period surge by Ohio State and
whipped the Buckeyes 85-76.
The Wolverines, bouncing back
in fine fashion after Saturday
night's heartbreaking loss to In-
diana, made use of their height
advantage to score from under-
neath and out rebound the Co-
THUS, despite the fact that the
.losers connected on close to 40
percent of their shots as com-
pared to Michigan's 36 percent,
the Wolverines still hit more floor
Harvey Williams, who fouled
out of the last contest in the
first half, was a different ball-
player yesterday as he led Mich-
igan scorers with 24 tallies. Wil-
liams, at 6-8, four inches taller
than any Buckeye who played,
made good use of his advantage
as he scored the bulk of his 11
field goals on tip ins.
For Ohio State, Paul Ebert was
just about the whole story. The

he hit four straight outside shots.
EVENTUALLY Ebert missed but
he managed to connect enough'
times to be the game's high scorer
with 35 markers. Included in this
tally were 13 fouls made out of 13
attempted, tying a Big Ten record'
for consecutive free throws.
For a while in the fourth
quarter, it looked like Bill Per-

another day before it saw a one

standings. Led by Ebert and
Chuck Ellis, who threw in 14

stanza, Ohio State almost
caught the local dribblers.

saw the winners' 13 point third

Buckeyes pulled up to 68-67. How-

the contest, came through with a

year and got off to a very slow
start. With Ebert making like
George Mikan, Ohio State raced
off to an 18-10 lead.
The Wolverines slowly came
back and just before the end
of the initial period, Paul Groff-
sky connected on a three-point
play, to tie the score at 21.
Michigan gradually pulled ahead
in the next quarter and almost
broke it open in the third 10-min-
ute stanza. Williams put five bas-
kets and a free throw around a
pair of one pointers by Groffsky
and the Maize and Blue found it-

IT WAS AT this point that the
winners got cold from the floor
and started losing the ball on bad
passes. However they found the
range just in' time and Coach
Floyd Stahl's outfit never did re-
gain the lead they lost when
Michigan scored its 24th point.
Particularly outstanding for
the Wolverines yesterday was
Don Eaddy. For the second
straight game, he was given the

toughest men in the Conference

Eisenhower solemnly assured the
American people last night that
"every legitimate means" is being
used to maintain the nation's pros-
perity "and will continue to be
used as necessary."
But, the President said, he does
not intend to deal in "pie-in-the-
sky promises to all, nor in bribes
to a few, nor in threats to any."
IN A 15-MINUTE nationwide
television-radio talk Eisenhower
hit out at "self-appointed peddlers
of gloom and doom" and said his

Eisenhower said that "help" is
the Administration's key word and
the key word of the program it will
lay before Congress Thursday
when he delivers his annual state
of the Union message.
"We do not mean monuments to
costly and' intolerant bureau-
cracy," the President said. "We
mean service-service that is ef-
fective, service that is prompt, ser-
vice that is single-mindedly de-
voted to solving the problem."
AFTER ticking off a dozen ac-
complishments with which he
credited the Administration in the
past year-the end of fighting in
Korea came first - Eisenhower
added one more. He said this was
the groundwork that has been laid
for sustaining "the basic prosperity
of our people."
"Every legitimate means avail-
able to the federal government
that can be used to sustain that
prosperity for this purpose-will
be used-if necessary."
The President, topping off a
busy day of legislative conferences
with his Cabinet and Republican
Congressional leaders, added:
"This Administration believes
that we must not and need not
tolerate a boom-and-bust Amer-
Ica. We believe that America's
prosperity does not and need not
depend upon war or the prepara-
tion for war."
Sound planning and aggressive
enterprise, the President said, must
be accompanied by faith in Amer-
ica's growth and progress, "a faith
