Three Teams Become
Conference Favorites
Ohio, State, Wisconsin, Minnesota Victories
Narrow Field of Choices in Bowl Race



Upstart Ohio State moved a big
step closer to the Western Con-
ference grid crown with a deci-
sive 20-14 win over Iowa's falter-
ing Hawkeyes Saturday.
In contrast, Iowa's chances for
the title were crushed under the
determined onslaught of the vic-
ious Buckeye running attack. Suf-
fering their second Big Ten loss,
the highly-touted Hawkeyes must
now hope for the greatest series
of upsets in conference grid his-
tory if they are to retain any title
Ohio State, however, is riding
the crest of a victory wave which
may power it all the way to Pasa-
dena by New Year's Day. The
Buckeyes moved past one of their
biggest opponents in conquering
the Hawkeyes, and only Wisconsin
remains as a major Big Ten ob-
stacle in the way of Ohio State's
title hopes.
Cassady Rides Again
The Buckeyes powered to 212
yards on the ground to continue
the powerful running attack which
has netted four consecutive wins
for the Columbus crew. The run-.
ning of Howard "Hopalong" Cas-

Giant Catcher
Turns to TV
NEW YORK (A)-Joey Garagiola,
veteran National League catcher
with the New York Giants, is
quitting baseball to go into radio
and television work.
Garagiola applied to Commis-
sioner Ford Frick yesterday to be
placed on the voluntary retired
list. He said he planned to go into
TV work in St. Louis.
The receiver came to the Giants
the first week of September,
bought for the waiver price from
the Chicago Cubs. He had been in
the National League since 1946,
playing with the Cardinals, Pi-
rates, Cubs and Giants. Last sea-
son he hit .280.

Lions' Hopes for Third Consecutive Title
Rest With League Leading Defensive Unit

sady and Bobby Watkins was so
successful that quarterback Dave
Leggett almost completely distain-
ed to use the equally effective
aerial attack of the Buckeyes.
Iowa managed to pierce the line
of Coach "Woody" Hayes' squad
for 153 yards, but the efficiency
of the Ohio State defense is evi-
dent in the fact that the Hawk-
eyes were unable to organize any
scoring drives. The two Iowa
touchdowns were scored on bril-
liant runs by Earl Smith, one on
an intercepted pass and another
on an OSU punt.
Wisconsin's stock went down
over the weekend despite its 20-6
triumph over Purdue. Outplayed
during the entire first half, the
Badgers gained nearly all their
total yardage on two long scoring
marches. On the passing arm of
sophomore Lenny Dawson, the
Boilermakers fell only ten yards
short of equalling Wisconsin's
yardage total and rolled up 15
first downs to 12 for the Madison
OSU Next for Badgers
Coach Ivy Williamson's crew
may have been concentrating on
the game coming up with Ohio
State next Saturday, because the
inept Badger squad of the first
two quarters came to life in the
second half and managed to keep,
its *unbeaten record intact.
On the basis of Saturday's per-
formance, Wisconsin has its work
cut out for it in facing OSU and
Iowa on successive weekends.
Minnesota is making a deter-
mined bid to be included among
the Big Ten squads which have
serious title possibilities. The
Gophers are fighting to overcome
the public opinion that they are
merely an early flash-in-the-pan
and so far are succeeding.
Coach Murray Warmath's split
T offense sent Illinois down to its
fourth defeat without a win Sat-
urday to remain undefeated in
the process. Four opponents have
failed to come within 11 points
of the surprising Gophers.
Minnesota Rolls On
Halfbacks Bob McNamara and
John Baumgartner powered an
attack which netted 369 yards as
quarterback Geno Cappelletti sent
play after play over the Illini
tackles and between the guards.
While it seems unlikely that Min-
nesota will be able to play Michi-
gan State, Purdue, Iowa and Wis-
consin on even terms, the Goph-
ers have shown that they may
play an important part in the
title fight.
Northwestern, Minnesota and
Purdue seem destined to play
spoiler roles in the present Big
Ten race. Their composite sched-
ule includes two games with OSU,
Iowa, and Wisconsin. With Iowa
nearly out of the title picture, a
loss by OSU or Wisconsin to one
of the spoilers could well decide
the Big Ten football title.




Ma ohkec
(Author of "Barefoot Boy With Cheek,' etc.)


Whenever the amazing success of
the Detroit Lions football team
thus far this year is discussed, the
first thing to be mentioned is the
passing of Bobby Layne and the
running of Doak Walker and Bob
No one speaks of defense. It
would seem that an offensive team
could provide a league winner
with just an average defense. But
National League players probably
won't attest to this. They know,
and aren't surprised as many
spectators will be to know, that the
Lions are the league's leading de-
fensive team.
The Lions' huge defensive line
is spearheaded by one of the
league's largest lads, Les Binga-
man, who throws 335 pounds
around the football field every Sun-
day, and Thurmond McGraw, who
at an even 100 pounds less than
Bingaman is no source of enter-
tainment for opposing linemen or
backs to look forward to. Both men
have been named on several All-
League selections before and con-

sidering their performances to
date, are definitely in line for simi-
lar honors this year.
Hold Runners to 1.8 Yard Average
The Lion forward wall have until
the Colt game allowed 1.8 yards
per running attempt, and have al-
lowed the Chicago Bears and Los
Angeles Rams 100 yards between
the two teams in rushing.
To bolster this conglamoration
of manpower in the line, the Lions
have a stellar defensive backfield
led by Jack Christiansen and Jim-
my David. The Lion secondary
leads the league in pass defense,
allowing only 36.8 per cent of
passes attempted against them to
be completed.
The line performance against
the Rams was even more astound-
ing when it is realized that the
West Coast team counted on their
two great running backs, Dan
Towler and Tank Younger, to car-
ry them to a win over the Lions
and a better grasp on their divi-
sion title. Their hopes were
smashed by the Detroit defense. It
was the first time in 67 games

Gather round, girls. Snap open a pack of Philip Morris, light up,
relax and enjoy that mild fragrant vintage tobacco while Old Dad
tells you about the latest campus fashions.
The key word this year is casual. Be casual. Be slapdash. Be rakish.
Improvise. Invent your own ensembles-like ski pants with a peek-
a-boo blouse, like pajama bottoms with an ermine stole, like a hocky
sweater with a dirndl.
(Dirndl, incidentally, is one of the truly fascinating words in the
English language. Etymologists have quarreled over its origin for
years. Some hold with Professor Manley Ek that Dirndl is a corrup-
tion of Dardanelle and is so named because it resembles the skirts
worn by the women of that region. This theory is at first glance
plausible, but begins to fall apart when you consider that there are
no women in the Dardanelle region because of the loathesome local
custom of female infanticide.)
(Another theory is advanced by Dr. Clyde Feb. Dirndl, says he,
is a contraction of "dairy in the dell" and refers to the milkmaidish
appearance of the skirt. But again close examination causes one to
abandon a plausible hypothesis. As every child knows, it is not "dairy
in the dell" but "farmer in the dell", in which case the skirt should
be called not dirndl but firndl.
(There are some who contend we will never know the true origins
of dirndl. To those faint hearted Cassandras I say, remember how
everyone laughed at Edison and Franklin and Fulton and Marconi
and Sigafoos. [Sigafoos, in case you have forgotten, invented the
nostril, without which breathing, as we know it today, would not be
possible.] The origins of dirndl will be found, say I, and anyone
who believes the contrary is a lily-livered churl and if he'll step
outside for a minute, I'll give him a thrashing he won't soon forget.)
But I digress. We were smoking a Philip Morris and talking about
the latest campus styles. Casual, we agree, is the key word. But
casual need not mean drab. Liven up your outfits with a touch of
glamor. Even the lowly dungaree and man-shirt combination can
be made exciting if you'll adorn it with a simple necklace of 120
matched diamonds. With Bermuda shorts, wear gold knee-cymbals.
Be guided by the famous poet Cosmo Sigafoos (whose brother Sam
it was who invented the nostril) who wrote:
Sparkle, my beauty,
Shimmer and shine,
The night is young,
The air's like wine,
Cling to a leaf,
Hang on a vine,
Crawl on your belly,
It's time to dine.
(Mr. Sigafoos, it should be explained, was writing about a glow-
worm. Insects, as everyone knows, are among Mr. Sigafoos' favorite
subjects for poems. Who can ever forget his immortal Ode to a Boll
Weevil? Or his Tumbling Along With the Tumbling Tumblebug?
Or his Fly Gently, Sweet Aphid? Mr. Sigafoos has been inactive
since the invention of DDT.)
But I digress. We were smoking a Philip Morris and discussing
fashions. Let us turn now to headwear. The motif in hats this year
will be familiar American scenes. There will be models to fit every
head-for example, the "Empire State Building" for tall thin heads;
the "Jefferson Memorial" for squatty ones; "Niagara Falls" for dry'
scalps. Feature of the collection is the "Statue of Liberty," complete
with a torch that actually burns. This is very handy for lighting
your Philip Morrises, which is very important because no matter
how good Philip Morrises are,'they're nowhere unless you light them.
We come now to the highlight of this year's fashion parade-a mad
fad that's sweeping the chic set at high tone campuses all over the
country. All the gals who are in the van, in the swim, and in the
know are doing it. Doing what, you ask? Getting tattooed, of course!
You just don't rate these days unless you've got at least an anchor
oh your biceps. If you really want to be the envy of the campus, get
yourself-a four masted schooner, or a heart with FATHER printed
inside of it, or a-
I interrupt this column to bring you a special announcement. A

enthuses over Jockey brand underwear
Impeccably groomed Chisley J. Chisley ("Chi-chi"
to his friends) says, "IJ like new-fashion fashion and
old-fashion comfort. For instance, this week I give
the nod to tartan cummerbunds and ascots of shock-
ng pik-but every week I go for the at-ease eng
of Jockey shorts! Take it from a clothes-horse ...

Whether you share Chisley's taste for sartorial
splendor or not, you'll enjoy the casual, at-ease ap-
pearance that comes from wearing Jockey shorts.

that the Rams have failed to score
a touchdown.
The defeat of the Rams coupled
with the tie on the coast one week
previous, puts the Lions in an ex-
cellent position to win their third
straight Western Division crown.
If they split with the San Francisco
49ers and win the rest of their
games, no easy task, they will an-
nex the title. However, in winning
the rest of their games coach Bud-
dy Parker and crew must get by
such obstacles as the Philadelphia
Eagles, the Cleveland Browns, the
Green Bay Packers, and the Rams,
Colts, and Bears again.
Defense becomes nore notably
important when it is realized that
the team which is second to the
Lions in both defensive depart-
ments is the Philadelphia Eagles,
current leaders of the Eastern Di-
vision. The Eagles had allowed
only 2.2 yards per running try, and
only 36.9 per cent of passes at-
tempted against them had been
completed before they routed the
It appears that the National
Football League, always noted for
its high-powered offensive teams is
now beginning to develop and de-
pend on stronger defensive units.
Could it be that the team with a
fair offense and powerful defense
will win the championship this
year? Quite a reversal from other
years of the past decade.

A pome by Ogden Gnash
Maurice had a little shirt
A sport-shirt, don't you know?
And everywhere that Maurice went
The shirt was sure to go.
(He was crazy about it.)
He'd wear it first to English class
From thence to Physics Lab
He found himself, like most young men
Quite fond of his VAN GAB.
(Van Heusen's famous rayon gabardine,
A real darb!)
He'd wear it when he went to bed
Because he liked nice things,
And Van Gab's special "finish'!
Makes it soft as angel's wings.
(Mrs. DiMaggio's)
He'd wear it in the shower
And his roommates thdught him daft
But he knew that it was washable
And so he merely laft.
(Certified completely washable, even
for commercial laundries, by American
Institute of Laundering. No bull.)
He loved its Sportown collar,
Fine with tie and fine without.
He was made for Van Gab's colors,
Each one's virile-have no doubt!
(Maury bought Van Gab in all 15 shades)
jVote: It also has new Vanafit sizing, which means sportshirt
comfort with dress-shirt fit. A great idea in a $4.95
shirt but not easily rhymable.
