.,nee Injury Leaves Branoff's Grid
Future Doubtful; Operation Uncertain

The Michigan fbctball team ran
through defensive practice yester-
day afternoon, without the ser-
vices of right halfback Tony Bran-
off, whose gridiron future is still
undetermined.
Branoff, whose knee was injured
in Saturday's Indiana game, is
registered in University Hospital
to receive treatment for his in-
jury. A statement from the office
of the associate' director of the
hospital, Dr. Roger B. Nelson, said
that Branoff is receiving conser-
vative treatment and is respond-
ing well.
In spite of previous rumors to
the effect that he will be operated
on immediately, there has been no
date set for the removal of a
piece of cartilage from his knee.
Won't Discuss Future
Friends said that Branoff is not
broken up -over his injury. How-
ever he won't talk about his fu-
ture with the football squad.
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan led
the rest of the grid squad, also
minus the services of halfback
Dan Cline, who is sidelined with
bruised ribs, through indoor drill
as a light snow and some rain fell
overthe practice field.
The Wolverine coaching staff
stressed passing defense, a point
which was sorely needed in the

backfield of Abe Woodson, Mickey
Bates, and J. C. Caroline.
Caroline Doubtful Starter
However, it was learned later in
the day that Caroline may not
play next Saturday. He missed the
Illini-Purdue game last week with
a shoulder separation.If he does
get into the game, he undoubtedly
will not be up to his full effective-
ness.
Oosterbaan took his team out on
the field only for a run in the
cold early winter air. The weath-
er is likely to be the same as it
is at present.
Also lost to the Wolverines for
another week is end Jerry Wil-
liams. Williams has an injured arm
and has missed the last two games.
Center Jim Bates is also on the
sick-list. He was sent to Health
Service for a checkup yesterday,
but will probably be able to play
in Saturday's tilt.

UCLA Tops
AP Poll;'M'
Takes Drop
Powerful UCLA took the lead as
nation's top team yesterday, and
Michigan, ranked 11th last week
slipped out of the top 20, accord-
ing to the Associated Press poll.
Defeat at the hands of a good
Indiana eleven was the reason for
the drop in the Wolverine rating.
Meanwhile undefeated Oklahoma,
ranked first three weeks ago, drop-
ped to third as the Uclans ascend-
ed.

Enters First P
Final;Lambd
By DAVE RORABACHER
Under the adverse conditions of
cold and an extremely slippery
field, Sigma Alpha Mu slipped and
slid its way to a 7-6 win over Del-
ta Tau Delta in a social fraternity
first place semi-final touch foot-
ball game yesterday.
The Sammies lone score came
on the last play of the first half,
when Paul Richmond caught
Warren Wertheimer's throw in
the end zone. The same combi-
nation accounted also for the all
important extra point.
Coming back strong in the
second period, the Delts marched
the- kickoff the length of the field
and scored on Jack Demarest's
throw to Al Price. However, the
losers dropped' the point after
touchdown and with it went the
game.
Murphy Intercepts
Later in the half Lee Murphy
intercepted a long Sammy pass
and so began another advance for

i Chi Gets Win
the losers which got as far as
the Sammies' three yard line. But
a fifteen yard penalty for offen-
sive holding and a five yard pen-
alty for illegal pass procedure on
successive plays thwarted the
drive.
As a result or yesterday's vic-
tory, the Sammies will meet the
winner of the Zeta Beta Tau, Phi
Delta Theta encounter in the
championship game, to be held a
week from today at Wines Field
at 8:30 p.m.
Chi Psi Loses, 15-0
Sigma Phi Epsilon downed Chi
Psi, 15-0, in a second place semi-
final engagement. Ted Dodenhoff
threw to Rich Crawford for the
initial touchdown and to Rog
Maugh for the extra point. Maugh
swiped the ball from the Chi Psi's,
Dale Ewert as Ewert tossed it into
the air to avoid being thrown for
a loss. Maugh skidded for a sec-
ond tally. Later Maugh caught
Ewert behind the latter's goal line
to garner a safety and round out
the score.
In the other Second place semi-
final game, Lambda Chi Alpha
edged Triangle, 6-0. Lambda Chi's
single touchdown came on a pass
from Hal Cruger to Jim Dutcher.
Lambda -Chi will meet Sigma Phi
Epsilon next week for the second
place championship.
Alpha Delta Phi lost its third
place playoff game to Theta Chi,
13-0. Evans Scholars won by for-
feit over Michigan Co-op in the
only independent league engage-
ment scheduled.

sounded once. again through Yost

Michigan basketball team began
its drills for the 1954-55 season.
For the second successive year
the Wolverines will play 2E games,
14 being conference tilts. The
Maize and Blue will make their
debut on December 4th when they
meet Pittsburgh in Ann Arbor.
Two more games, against Butler
and Marquette will follow before
the dribblers take to the road on
their annual Christmas trip.
Starting Five Returns
Nine lettermen, including all of
last year's starting five, return
to the aggregation which finish-
ed in a tie for ninth place with
Purdue in the 1953-54 campaign.
To this nucleus, a group of fine
sophomores led by gridder Ron
Kramer, Jim Shearon and Milt
Lingle round out the team.
Only three men were missing
from last year's outfit when prac-
tice opened on Monday. They are

OKLAHOMA CITY UP)-A slip

Allie Reynolds of the New York
Yankees the remainder of his
pitching career, it was being con-
jectured yesterday.
The 37-year-old fireballer told
the Daily Oklahoman the index
finger of his right hand was cut
to the bone in the accident last
Thursday at Colorado Springs,
Colo.
Reynolds had returned from
deer hunting. While taking a show-
er the mat slipped, thrownig him
into the glass enclosure.

ute operation in a Colorado
Springs hospital on the finger.

third in scoring last season as he
notched 250 points.
The top performer on the 53-54
team, Jim Barron, also returns for
another year of varsity competi-
tion. Possessing a deadly two-hand
set shot and an accurate jump
shot, Barron led the squad in
scoring as he racked up 377 points.
Barron Should Star
Great things are expected of
Barron this campaign, also. Peri-
go noted that the high scoring
guard, with a year of Big Ten
playing under his belt, will have
a lot more poise and experience.
Another factor which will im-
prove his playing is that the squad
probably will not rely on Barron
as much, and this will take some
of the pressure off his shoulders.
Tom Jorgenson and Don Eaddy
round out the starting five. Jor-
genson, a fine shooter and floor
man, scored 272 points to hold the
second spot on the Wolverine team
while Eaddy finished fourth in
the scoring race.
Of the sophomores, Kramer is
expected to supply the most help.
Very strong, possessing a good pair
of hands and a sharp eye, he
should be a big asset under the
boards - where Michigan needs
help badly. Shearon and Lingle are
both good playmakers with good
outside shots and should help the
team.

COACH BILL PERIGO
... bucket squad improving
forward John Codwell, center Milt
Mead, and past captain, Ray Pa-
vechevich. The loss of these play-
ers will hurt Michigan in the
"battle of the boards," a depart-
ment where the Wolverines were
woefully inept last season.
Williams Holds Key
Harvey Williams, to a large de-.
gree, seems to hold the key to the
door which could open into the
first division of the Big Ten. It is
accepted as fact by all hoop fol-
lowers that a team can not be
successful unless it has a good big
man. Williams, a 6-8 junior from
Kentucky, could fill the bill.
Though he only averaged 9-2
points last season, there were
times when the big center played
excellent ball.
Paul Groffsky, captain of the
Michigan aggregation will be back
at one of the forward positions. A
good rebounder and a steady play-
er, Groffsky will be one of the
important cogs in the Maize and
Blue machine. Groffsky finished

reason is better taste. Of course Luckies
taste better. First of all, Lucky Strike
means fine tobacco. Then, that tobacco is
toasted to taste better. "It'sToasted"-the
famous Lucky Strike process-tones up
Luckies' light, mild, good-tasting tobacco
to make it taste even better. Try a pack.
