Bookmakers and football fore-
casters undoubtedly breathed a
sigh of relief as the 1954 Big Ten
grid campaign came to a close
with the four Conference contests
played last Saturday.
As Ohio State closed out an un-
beaten season "-and annexed its
ninth Western Conference grid
crown by edging Michigan, 21-7,
football fans all across the na-'
tion could only shake their heads
in amazement as they scanned the
final Big Ten standings.
OSU Cops Title
They saw Ohio State, an also-
ran in the pre-season polls, firm-
ly entrenched in the number one
spot, reigning as the Western
Conference king. Michigan, con-
signed to the second division by
the experts, was in the fight for
the crown until thp final few min-
utes of the season, and managed
to grab a share of second place.
In fourth place in the standings

Harvey Williams, the lanky 6-8

been working hard since practice
began, has, as Perigo noted,
"greatly improved over last year."
Captain Paul Groffsky will hold
down one of the forward positions
and Tom Jorgenson and Miller
Lingle will alternate at the other.
It is debatable as to how much ac-
tion Jorgenson and Lingle will see
in tonight's contest.
Jorgenson Troubled By Injury
Jorgenson, who averaged 12.3
points per game last season, has
been sidelined with a sprained
ankle and "charley horse," sus-
tained in the intramural football fi-
nals. The injury has slowed him
down and he is still sub-par physi-
cally. Lingle, a sophomore, has
also been plagued with a sprained

action this evening are Bob Shar-

Maentz have taken a "vacation"

to work himself into shape quickly;

COLLEGE SMOKERS PREFER Luckies-and by a wide
margin-according to the largest and latest coast-to-coast
college survey. Once again, the No. 1 reason: Luckies taste
better. They taste better because Lucky Strike means fine
tobacco. Then, that tobacco is toasted to taste better.
"It's Toasted"- the famous Lucky Strike process - tones
up Luckies' light, good-tasting tobacco to make it taste
even better. The pleasure you'll get from Luckies' better
taste is vividly depicted in the Droodle above, titled:
