OSU Remains Unbeaten in Big Ten Play

By ALAN EISENBERG
Upsets, the boon and bane of
football coaches, were the rule and
not the exception in the play-for-
pay world this past week end.
Six games were played in the
National Football League, five on
Sunday and one on Saturday eve-
ning. Of these games, the outcome
of only one, the Lion-Ram tilt, was
not considered by many to be a
reversal of form.
Lions Tie for Lead
When all play had been conlet-
ed Detroit found itself again tied
with the San Francisco 49ers for
the lead in the Western Division.
The Lions, however, have played
one less game than the 49ers, and
as a result, hold a slight advan-
tage.
With the leaders in the Eastern
sector all getting whipped, the
three-way tie still remains. New
York, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia
are locked tightly with records of
four and two. The Cleveland
Browns, with three victories in
five games, are moving up on the
leaders.
Bears Upset 49ers
The top upset, of course, was
the Chicago Bears' win over the
49ers, 31-27. And it took a story
book finish by George Halas and
his crew before the "impossible"
could be accomplished. With 25 sec-
onds remaining in the game, and
the Bears trailing by three points
it seemed as if San Francisco
would retain its hold on first
place.
At this point, George Blanda took
the snap from center and later-
alled the ball tocEd Brown, who
tossed the ball downfield, an esti-
mated 60 yards. Harlan Hill, a
rookie end from Alabama State
Teachers College, outraced the 49er
secondary, snatched the ball out
of the air, and scooted over the
goal-line for the score.
It was Blanda and Hill who were
instrumental in bringing about the
upset win. Blanda threw three
touchdown passes to Hill, kicked a
15-yard field goal, and made all
four conversions.
Browns Whip Giants
Football fans are jumping back
onto the Cleveland bandwagon.
The Browns gave notice to all in-
terested parties that they are not
"dead" as they whipped the of-
fense-minded New York Giants,
24-14. Scoring in all four periods,
the Browns displayed a fine bal-
ance of running and passing.
It was Otto Graham who led the
victors, as he notched two scores
and passed for a third touchdown.
However, the surprises in the
NFL started Saturday evening
when the Green . Bay Packers
turned back the Phitladelphia Ea-
gles, 37-14. A crowd of 25,378 at
Connie Mack Stadium saw the
7'

Packers battle the pre-game fa-
vorites. Tobin Rote led the Packer
barrage as he flipped three touch-
down \passes.
Detroit Drops RamS quad
Detroit maintained its record of
never having lost two games in a
row under the regime of Coach
Buddy Parker. In a closely-fought
battle, the Lions topped the Los
Angeles Rams, 27-24. Bobby Layne,
trying to retain his hold on the
first string quarterback position,
and end Leon Hart were particu-
larly outstanding.
Layne completed halfof his 22
passes for 177 yards while Hart
stole the ball from a Ram half-
back and waltzed into the end
zone for a touchdown.
Washington and the Chicago
Cardinals notched their first wins
of the year as they defeated Bal-
timore and Pittsburgh, respective-
ly. Both winners were pre-game
underdogs.
On next week's schedule the top
attraction seems to be the game
between the New York Giants and
tthe Pittsburgh Steelers. With both
teams fighting for the Eastern Di-
vision flag, it should prove to be
an interesting affair.
49ers' McElhenny
Out for Season
SAN FRANCISCO (A-The San
Francisco 49ers, who lost their
first game of the season Sunday,
to the Chicago Bears, will have to
get along the rest of the year
without the services of their top
halfback, Hugh McElhenny.
Hurricane Hugh, leading running
back and ground gainer in pro
football, suffered a shoulder sep-
aration in the closing minutes of
the Bear game, which the Chica-
go team won, 31 to 27.
McElhenny underwent an opera-
tion yesterday. A metal pin was
placed in the injured shoulder.

Bruised Ribs
Michigan's football team may
have to play the rest of its games
without the services of right half-
back Tony Branoff.
His left knee was re-injured in
Saturday's tilt against Indiana. He
was carried off the field shortly
after the second half began. A
cartilage in the knee, which has
not healed properly, is the cause
of Branoff's infrequent appear-
ances on the gridiron this season.
He has developed water on the
knee as a result of a deepseated
bruise. Swelling and intense pain
resulted when he was knocked
down in the second play of the
third quarter Saturday.
Trainer Jim Hunt claims that
if his knee appears to be improv-
ing rapidly, he would be able to
play again this fall. The impor-
tant consideration is the amount of
time it takes for the knee to grow
stronger. Hunt could not estimate
how long it might take for the knee
to improve enough to allow Branoff
to play again.
Halfback Danny Cline's ribs were
bruised in the Indiana encounter,
but X-rays yesterday revealed no
fracture.
Ed Hickey, who sustained a
cracked rib earlier in the season,
filled in for Branoff during parts
of the third and fourth quarters.

By DON LINDMANv
Things are looking rosier and
rosier in Columbus as more Ohio
State fans put on their Rose Bowl
colored glasses with each passing
Saturday.
As a result of last week's Big
Ten grid action, the Buckeyes are
the only remaining unbeaten Con-
ference eleven. Michigan, the only
other undefeated squad before last
Saturday afternoon, fell before the
inspired play of Florian Helinski
and his Indiana cohorts by a 13-9
score.
Buckeyes Seen as Favorites
The proteges of Coach "Woody"

Hayes loom as heavy favorites to
represent the Big Ten in the 1955
Rose Bowl tilt as a result of the
whipping handed the Wolverines
by the Hoosier Schoolmaster, Hel-
inski. The Buckeyes must win
their remaining two Conference
contests to emerge with an undis-
puted claim to the Big Ten title
and the Rose Bowl invitation.
The OSU perch at the top of the
Western Conference standings may
not be as secure as it seems, how-
ever. Ohio State's last two victor-
ies, against Wisconsin and North-
western, were very close contests.

Gomberg Defeats Wenley
To Gain Berth in Finals

By JIM BAAD
Despite a heavy snowstorm and
a sloppy field, Gomberg House
and Lloyd House came through to
win their games and qualify for
the I-M residence hall touch foot-
ball finals.
Gomberg, last year's champ,
was challenged gamely by Wenley
Hall, but the Gomberg men, be-
hind the passing of Marsh Sylvan,
edged out the West Quad team, 21-
13. Sylvan fired for all three touch-
downs and all three extra points.
He hit Joe Winger, Bob Wosch-
itz, and Jim McClurg for the six-
pointers. Jack Cuipak, Ed Godfrey,
and Woschitz received his extra
point tosses. Dale Hofman and
Doyne Jackson did the scoring for
Wenley.
An offside penalty and an alert
Gomberg player may have made
the difference in the game. A pen-
alty was called against Wenley on
a pass interception play which
would have halted a Gomberg
drive near the goal line. With
the help of the penalty, Gomberg

scored on the next play. Also, some
ball-stealing tactics by a Gomberg
man, who made the theft from a
Wenley pass receiver in the win-
ner's end zone, prevented another
Wenley touchdown.
Two sustained drives gave Lloyd
House its victory over Van Tyne,
13-6. The first march came after
the opening kickoff and was ter-
minated when Jack Watson scored
on a short run. For the second tal-
ly, Jack Wheeler caught a short
Watson pass just before the half
ended. Bob Pearson scored for
Van Tyne's only touchdown.
The passing of Tony Hoffman en-
abled Reeves to beat Hinsdale,
20-0. Hoffman was responsible for
all three touchdowns, throwing long
passes to John Baxter, Guy Fos-
ter, and Wal Roeser.
The rest of the scores for resi-
dence hall football games were
Cooley 6, Strauss 0; Adams 13, Hu-
ber 0; Allen Rumsey 7, Hayden 0;
Anderson 7, Scott 6; Williams 13,
Greene 0; Kelsey 1, Michigan 0;
Wiinchell 1, Taylor 0.

from Columbus were hard-pressed
to hold their own against the fired-
up Wildcats. If the breaks should
go the other way in future tilts, the
roses may wilt in Columbus.
Three Teams In Race
Three Big Ten squads are still
chasing the OSU eleven. Michigan,
Minnesota, and Purdue remain in
the running for the Western Con-
ference crown, but Ohio State ad-
mittedly has a big edge over all
three. The schedule favors the
Buckeyes and may.be a determin-
ing factor in the race.
A look at the schedule shows that
OSU must face the Purdue and
Michigan squads, either or both
of which could trip the Buckeyes.
The Wolverines face Illinois and
Michigan State in addition to OSU.
The Illini and Spartans are hungry
squads, as was Indiana when it in-
vaded Ann Arbor; and the Wolver-
ines may have to fight for their
football lives if they are to win
both games. The traditional bat-
tle with Ohio State must be con-
sidered a toss up.
Purdue, Badgers Could Win
Since both Michigan and OSU
could wind up with two defeats,
Purdue and Minnesota have out-
side chances to grab the title, pro-
viding they win the rest of their
Big Ten tilts. Both squads are
handicapped by six-game Confer-
ence schedules, and in addition
both have formidable foes ahead
of them.
Purdue meets Iowa and Ohio
State before facing Indiana in the
traditional tilt -for the Old Oaken
Bucket, a factor which somewhat
equalized any advantage Purdue
may have. The Gophers must meet
Iowa and Wisconsin on successive
Saturdays. Both are strong foes,
and the Badgers, out of the title
crase, will be laying for Coach
Murray Warmath's men in their
traditional battle.

For the first time in six
weeks of picking -the top 15
football games of the week, six
persons topped the Daily sports
staff.
To beat the experts, the six
persons, all students, had to
guests thirteen right out of the
fifteen games. The best that
the Daily experts could do was
compile a 12-3 record.
The six prognosticators are
TIM PUTNEY, 3317 Reeves,
South Quad; DON SARIN, 202
Michigan, West Quad; JERRY
WARCHAIZER, 320 E. Wash-
ington; W. B. EBERHARD,

BOB WEISBER GER, 1901
