Block 'M' Instructions Given
Alpha Kappas Lose I-M
Game to Dela Theta Phi
Block 'M' is to be commended
for its performance at the Minne-
sota game. The Block looked good
and few mistakes were made. How-
ever, there are a few suggestions
which will improve the precision
of the section.
When the stunt number is call-
ed, check your instruction card im-
mediately and get the proper
flashcards ready. At the ready
signal bend LOW over your card.
Remember, if there are numbers
in the color, flip, or both columns,
be sure to lift or flip your card
when the proper number is called.
With your cooperation, Block 'M',
this year will join with the band
and the football team as an out-
Baer Leads Running Attack;
Cline Tops in Total Yardage
By DAVE RORABACHER
In the hardest fought struggle
of the afternoon, Delta Theta Phi
outscored Alpha Kappa Kappa,,
19-13, to win its professional fra-
ternity football game yesterday.
Black, Peck Star
Don Black and Doug Peck shar-
ed the passing chores for the vic-
tors, Black throwing for a touch-
down and an extra point, while
Peck made two touchdown tosses.
Ced Richner was on the receiving
end of two of the six-pointers, one
from each hurler.
Peck's other point gaining throw
was caught in sensational style
by Dick Hostetler who literally
snatched it from the arms of two
pass defenders. The extra point
was snared by Jim McCrory.
Hunt Scores Twice
Both of Alpha Kappa Kappa's
scores came on passes from John
McCann to Phil Hunt. The losers
continued to threaten throughout
the encounter but were unable to
make scores again.
Phi Delta Epsilon outplayed Al-
pha Rho Chi to defeat the archi-
tects, 20-6. All three of the medi-
cine men's touchdowns came on
throws from Henry Guralnick to

Fullback Fred Baer increased
his lead as Michigan's leading
ground-gainer with a 94-yard ef-
fort against Minnesota, but half-
back Dan Cline continues to lead
the Wolverines in total yardage as
the 1954 grid season passed the
half-way mark last Saturday.
Baer Far Ahead
With 230 yards gained to his
credit for the season, Baer moved
far in front of his backfield mates
statistically. The LaGrange, Ill.,
senior is followed in yardage by
Cline, with a 156-yard total.
In average yardage per carry
Baer is also a standout, boasting
a 4.1 mark. Although having seen
limited action due to injury, Tony
Branoff ranks second with a 3.7
average, followed by Ed Hickey
with a 3.2 mark.
Cline is "Work Horse"
Baer's position at the top of the
rushing statistics becomes even
more significant when the loss
figures are studied, Second only to
Cline in total rushing attempts,
the Maize-and-Blue pacesetter has
lost a total of only two yards,
compared to Cline's mark of 43
yards lost. No other Wolverine
back has even approached Baer's
efficiency in getting across the
line of scrimmage.
With 99 yards gained through
the air against the Gophers, Cline
retained his top position in the
total yards gained statistics. The
steady tailback has netted 268
yards through his running and
McDonald, Maddock Share Honors
Duncan McDonald continues to
lead the Wolverine passers in to-
tal yardage, but sophomore Jim
Maddock has the best pass com-
pletion percentage, a very credit-
able 53 per cent. McDonald added
In pass receiving, punting, and
scoring the story is all Ron Kra-
mer. The big sophomore has snar-
ed 11 passes, nearly four times as
many as his nearest challenger,
for a total of 156 yards, nearly
twice as many as second-place
Lou Baldacci. In addition, Kra-
mer has picked up 20 points with
two touchdowns and eight extra
points. Baldacci, Baer, and Cline
share the second spot with 12
Michigan's punting continues to
be sensational, as four Wolverine
booters are averaging 36 yards or
better per kick. Kramer has a
spectacular 42.1-yard a v e r a g e,
Maddock follows him with a very
creditable 36.4-yard mark, and
Cline is right behind with an av-
erage of 36.3. McDonald rounds
out the quartet, his only punting
effort of the season having trav-
eled an even 36 yards.
NEW YORK W - The groggy
Philadelphia Athletics stayed in
the hands of the Mack family yes-
terday after the bid of an eight-
man Philadelphia syndicate was
thumbed down by the American
League in a six-hour meeting.
According to one club executive,
the secret vote on the proposal to
sell to the Philadelphia syndicate
was 4-4. It was believed New York
and Baltimore were in opposition
and Detroit, Washington and Cleve-
land favorable. That left Chicago,
Boston and Philadelphia to be ac-
Six votes are needed to approve
Charles Comiskey, vice-president
of the Chicago White Sox, said a
"divergence of opinion in the Mack
family on how the stock must be
sold" was a reason for the owners'
Macks Can't Decide
"I will not come back to any
more meetings until the Mack
family (91-year-old Connie and his
two sons, Earle and Roy) has set-
tled their own affairs among
themselves. It seems they can't
make up their minds. There are
others who feel the same."
Earl Hilligan, director of public
relations for the league, said the
$3,375,000 offer by Arnold Johnson,
Chicago industrialist, to buy the
A's and move the club to Kansas
City was not discussed at this
meeting. Hilligan had announced
at an Oct. 12 meeting in Chicago
that Johnson had been approved
as an owner and Kansas City as a
site, pending sale of the stock by
the Mack family.

Grid Team Stresses Pass Defense in Indiana Drills

By LEW HAMBURGER
An underrated Indiana team is
the newest obstacle in the road
from Ann Arbor to Pasadena.
While Michigan enthusiasts ea-
gerly await the game that may
determine the Conference cham-
pionship, their football team has
been hard at work preparing for
a less publicized foe, Indiana.
Regaining strength as the injury
list shortens, the team will be mi-
nus the services of only one man,
end Gerry Williams. Coach Bennie
Oosterbaan ruled out any possi-

bility that Williams might play
yesterday. Right halfback Ed Hick-
ey is a question mark, and his
status rests with x-rays taken yes-
terday before practice. Fullback
Dave Hill is still suffering from an
aggravated ankle injury, but Oos-
terbaan said he may see some ac-
tion against Indiana.
The team has been stressing pass
defense this week in preparation
for Indiana's star quarterback,

Florian Helsinki. The Hoosiers
boast a fine passing attack that
has seen Helsinki favor Olympic
decathlon star Milt Campbell, his
right halfback and Fred Bomba,
his left end, as receivers.
Indiana may provide a tougher
game than many Michigan rooters
like to foresee. The Hoosiers led
Michigan State for three quarters
before bowing, 21-14. The game
ended with the ball in Indiana's
possession on the Spartan 11-yard
Indiana Bounces Back
Against Iowa the Hoosiers spot-
ted the Hawkeyes three touch-
downs before roaring back in the
second half with two of their own.
The final score was 27-14, but In-
diana lost two touchdowns. One
was called back on a penalty and
the other was lost when Campbell
fumbled in the Iowa enrl zone.
Michigan's up-tand-down team
has been unpredictable all year.
They have shown spurts of great
play against Iowa and Minnesota,
but have also looked very poor
against Army and not too out-
standing against Washington.
The Indiana game will be the
first test of three games in which
Michigan should be the favorite.
Thus far they have played their
great games against the best com-
petition. Against teams of lesser
calibre, Michigan has not shown
too well. The question at present
is whether the team can play the
same inspired brand of football
against less-heralded squads.
Michigan Must Stay 'Up'
This will also be the first time.
that it has been necessary for the
Wolverines to be 'up' for two
games in a row. A letdown at this
point would be fatal. The great
performances against Iowa and
Minnesota were separated by a fair
performance at Evanston.
The outcome of this game, there-
fore, seems to depend on Michi-
gan's ability to play inspired foot-
ball rather than on Indiana's pow-
er, already a rather well-known
Gopher Defense Confused
Michigan's deception is another
factor in its favor. Last Saturday
signal-callers Lou Baldacci, a sea-
soned performer, and Jim Mad-
dock, surprisingly cool at the helm
in his sophomore year, consistent-
ly confused Minnesota defenders.
Also a great factor in last week's
win wasmOosterbaan's ability to
get the most from all of his play-
ers. Almost every substitution re-
sulted in needed yardage.
