Football Playoff Encounters

Hayes Provides Winning
Margin in Low Hurdles_

Delta Tau Delta gained the
quarter-finals of the first-place
playoffs as it crushed Alpha Epsi-
lon Pi, 27-6, in a bitterly fought
social fraternity touch football
contest last night at Ferry Field.
Al Price sparked the Delts to
their win while tossing three
touchdown passes, and setting up
another TD. Price started the
scoring when he connected with
Jack Demorest in the end zone.
Late in the fourth quarter, Price
added insult to the already injur-
ed Alpha Epsilon Pi team as he
tossed to Demorest for one TD and
handed-off to Demorest who pass-
ed to Don Davidson for another.
The losers lone touchdown was the
result of a pass from Herb Zarrow.
to Don Mazin.
Two pass interceptions that were
carried for touchdowns provided
enough points to secure a victory
margin for Sigma Alpha Epsilon
as it topped Beta Theta Pi, 21-7.
The Betas had the ball at the mid-
field stripe early in the first quar-
ter when Ron Norene intercepted
a pass and carried it 40 yards for
a tally. On the,first play after the
kickoff, Norene again intercepted
and ran for a score.

The Betas were never able to
top this lead, but a pass from Gor-
dy Barns to Terry Iverson netted
them a TD. The final SAE touch-
down came about when Bill Ber-
nard carried the ball through the
center of the line into pay-dirt.
Sharp passing by Hal Cruger ac-
counted for three of the scores
as Lambda Chi Alpha dumped Phi
Kappa Psi, 25-14, in a second place
playoff. In another second place
playoff tilt, Phil Jacobus passed
for all the touchdowns as Sigma
Chi walloped Alpha Tau Omega,
In a third place playoff, Phi
Kappa Sigma edged - Phi Sigma
Kappa, 7-0, on a scoring pass
play from Nate Knouse to Jim
Vukovich. The other third place
playoff game ended in a tie, but
Delta Kappa Epsilon won in over-
time to top Tau Kappa Epsilon,
7-1. A pass from Jim Reindell to
Carl Eckert netted the score.
A TD toss from Buzz Newton
to Curt Wells gave Sigma Phi a
6-0 edge over Zeta Psi. Trigon
whipped Acacia. 12-7. Both games
were fourth place playoffs.

M' Grid Squad Working Hard
In Preparation for Gophers

Sophomores received a lot of at-
tention during practice yesterday
as Coach Bennie Oosterbaan tried
to get his injury-riddled Michigan
football squad ready for its contest
with Minnesota this weekend.
The powerful Gopher eleven will
probably find at least four second-
year men facing them when the
whistle blows for the opening kick-
off in Saturday's tilt. Quarterback
Jim Maddock, halfback Ed Shan-
non, and ends Ron Kramer and
Tom Maentz are sophomores who
seem likely to be in the Wolver-
ines' starting lineup.
In addition, backs Terry Barr

and John Greenwood, and linemen
Jerry Goebel and Mike Rotunno
are likely to see considerable ac-
tion against the surprising Minne-
sota team. All eight sophomores
received stiff workouts as the Mich-
igan coaching staff put the Wolver-
ines through one of their hardest
practice sessions of the season.
In a scrimmage which included
crushing blocks and bruising
tackles, unknown in recent mid-
week practices, the varsity men
showed unusual spirit as they ran
against Gopher defenses and de-
fended against Minnesota plays.

when an upstart Gopher eleven
claimed it, 34-7. It promptly found
its way back to Ferry Field the
following year, and the Wolverines
kept it there until 1927. It was in
1926 that it was rocked the hardest
on its shelf.
Michigan's great '26 squad,
which had already smashed the Go-
phers 20-0 that season met them in
a second contest up in Minneapolis,
and it was there that one of the
most dramatic of all jug battles
was to take place . . . two titanic
teams fought it out in icy weather,
and it was Minnesota that took a
6-0 second period lead.
The Gophers dominated the game
from there on, and it looked like
the jug was lost, when, like a page
from fiction, Michigan's great Ben-
nie Oosterbaan-the same man who
will guide Wolverine fortunes this
Saturday afternoon-scooped up a
Minnesota fourth quarter fumble
and dashed 60 yards for a touch-
down. He then booted the extra
point to personally account for one
of the greatest Michigan wins in
history. The Gophers piled up 18
first downs to Michigan's two, but
the Wolverines led on the score-
board-enough to give them the
storied Little Brown Jug.
Doom Around Corner
A Wolverine victory in 1933 made
it 16 out of 18 jug victories for
Michigan, but doom was around
the corner. From 1934 to 1942 the
Giants of the Northland under Ber-
nie Bierman rolled over the Wol-
verines without a break, and in
1935 inflicted the worst drubbing a
Michigan team has ever taken-
Michigan was to start a string
of its own in 1943, for it rolled re-
lentlessly over the Gophers from

that time until last season up at
Minneapolis when Paul Giel took
the jug away, 22-0.
Two victories especially stand
out in that decade long string.
Howard Yerges stepped into ail-
ing quarterback Joe Ponsetto's
shoes on a crisp October day in
1945, and with a display of crush-
ing power, Crisler's Wolverines
pulverized a very strong Minneso-
ta squad, 26-0, to keep the jug
string alive.
1949 again found the Wolverines
up against it, for after losses to
Army and Northwestern, it ap-
peared as if Minnesota would run
wild over Michigan. Bierman had
Clayton Tonnemaker, Leo Nomel-
lini, Harold Grant, and Billy Bye,
but all of them couldn't stop Chuck
Ortmann, who led the Maize and
Blue to a 14-7 upset victory.
The jug is gone now, for the
first time in over a decade. It is
up to the 1954 team to get it back.

Girls Excell
At Guessing
In Grid Poll
It's a woman's world!
After the grid selections of over
400 Daily readers had Peen tabu-
lated, it was found that the women
had an edge over the men in pick-
ing the winners of last week's
Actually, only 3.2 per cent of the
selections sent in were by members
of the "weaker" sex. Although
none of the ladies could top the
Daily's experts, they compiled an
overall record of 73.3 per cent cor-
rect on their guesses, while the
men could do no better than 70.9
per cent.
West Quad Tries
The men of West Quad have
nothing to be ashamed of, how-
ever. They equalled the 73.3 per
cent overall total. Unfortunately
(for the males), this was the only
men's group to compare with the
The East Quadders came fairly
close with 71.9, as did the men
from the South Quad, who guessed

Fraternity men slumped badly,
guessing correctly on 69.2 per cent
of the fifteen games listed. Merl

ing outside the aforementioned
housing units fared slightly better,
with a 70 per cent overall total.
Residents of the Law Club, whQ
may be called upon to pass on im-
portant judgements in later life,
seem to have poor judgement as
far as football is concerned. The
future barristers scored on only
65.1 per cent of their predictions.
South Quad Most Responsive
A further breakdown of the
men's figures shows that South
Quad's residents were the most re-
sponsive to the Daily's call, ac-
