By The Associated Press
Maryland, Michigan and Okla-
homa, the terrific trio of col-
lege football, marched relentlessly
through their opponents yesterday.
If there was a surprise, perhaps
it was the ease with which Michi-
gan ground out its 26-2 victory
over Army. This was the first
time the Wolverines, have beaten
the Cadets since their series was
started in 1945 and they did itI
almost effortlessly.
Earl Blaik's hordes from the"
Hudson had scored at a point-a-
minute clip against Furman and
Penn State. Conversely, Michigan
had its troubles beating Michigan
State by one touchdown last week.
Maryland, top team in the As-
sociated Press poll, had no prob-
lem sailing past Wake Forest, 28-7,
while Oklahoma shut out Texas,
20-0 for its 22nd straight victory.
Michigan's solid triumph over
Army was hardly consoling for
its Big 10 foes who were beginning
to entertain hopes that the Wol-
verines might not be quite so
powerful as advertised.

Army Cadets after beginning his great afternoon yesterday with a 20-yard kickoff return at the start
of the game. Closing in are Michigan's Charlie Brooks (No. 89) and Al Sigman (No. 70) and
Army's Ralph Chesnauskas (No. 63).

"WHEY gave me more than I thought they would. They're one of
thebest Michigan teams I've ever seen"
Coach Earl "Red" Blaik was standing in the middle of the Army
locker room holding a post-game press interview after yesterday's
26-2 drubbing which the Cadets took from the mighty Michigan foot-
ball powerhouse. He wasn't in a depressed mood, as is common after
a resounding defeat. He seemed to be trying to rationalize, to set in
his own mind the reasons for the poor showing of the Army eleven.
After a string of victories over the Wolverines, Blaik was finally
faced with telling the reporters his gridiron troubles. "How can you
put a team together in a week," he said, referring to his injury-
fidden squad. With five regulars missing from the lineup, any coach
would have troubles. And the Maize and Blue capitalized on the lack
of Cadet strength.
Michigan got its show of power from some unexpected sources
as left half Terry Barr scored two touchdowns, did some fine pass
catching, and battered at the Army forward wall in a manner in
which Michigan fans have not seen in many a moon.
Barr wasn't the only flame in the Wolverine fire, although Coach
Wally Weber said, "He was hotter than a fire around a celluloid
collar." Halfback Tony Branoff bulled and battered his .way through
the Cadet line time and time again, proving himself the workhorse
of the backfield. Halfback Jimmy Pace thrilled the fans with some
fine open field running, although most of his effort was cancelled
via penalties.
The Unexpected Happens...
THE unexpected performances weren't the only reasons for the
smashing Michigan triumph. A common gridiron disease known
as fumbleitis plagued the Army squad all afternoon. Nine times, three
in the third and three in the fourth quarter, the Cadets dropped the
pigskin. Eight times the Wolverines recovered.
Poor passing on the part of quarterback Don Holleder, a con-
verted All-American end, added to the Army misery yesterday after-
noon. Completing only one of ten tries, Holleder didn't live up to
the high expectation of many fans. But as Blaik said, "He just
stepped into the position in September so you can't expect miracles."
All of these troubles, added to the sharp and alert playing of the
Wolverines, brought 'the 97,239 fans one of the greatest football
games of the Michigan-Army series.
On the Michigan side of the ledger, Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
seemed quite optimistic after the game as he too held forth for the
press in the locker room. "I'm proud of them. They played a real
good game. It was a hard-going game and Army wouldn't let up.
I'm really proud of them," he commented.
Oosterbaan had nothing but praise for Barr, who entered the
game with a bruised shoulder. "He's a real good competitor with
lots of courage. We can count on him," Oosterbaan aded.
The line players of the Wolverine squad did a remarkable job of
defensive work. They held tight and didn't permit the Cadets to get
out of their own territory for three-quarters of the game. It was
only when Oosterbaan practically emptied the bench that Army
came into possible scoring position.
The only dark cloud to come over the Michigan football camp
was the injury suffered by All-American candidate, Ron Kramer,
when he was taken out midway in the second quarter with a bruised
chest. Other injuries continued to bother the Wolverine squad. Full-
back Lou Baldacci and Dave Hill each' are suffering with sore ankles
and little Ed Shannon had to fill in for them. Oosterbaan will have
to continue shifting the backfield around until all his regulars are
sound again.
WOLVERINE SHORTS - One bright spot was the return of end
Tom Maentz to the lineup. Maentz was sidelined before the start
of the season with a back injury. He was outfitted with a brace and
doctors say that he will be able to play regularly from now on.
* * *
After the game Oosterbaan made a statement which most fans
'pave been waiting to hear all season. He said, "We're going to be
rugged, especially with Kramer." We've all wanted to hear that end
we hope it's going to hold true. But, it's a long way to the glory
derived from winning and the fans seem to be "counting their chickens
before they hatch."
Michigan undoubtedly strengthened their national ranking by
handing Army such a sound beating. Rated second last week in the
Associated Press poll, the Wolverines should. either move past first
ranking Maryland, who beat Wake Forest, 28-7, or gain a stronger
position in the second ranking. Army was rated sixth and will
probably drop slightly in the national polls.

sin fullback Charles Thomas, an-
other Alan Ameche, pounded
through the Purdue line for a sec-'
ond-quarter touchdown and Paul
Schwaiko kicked an 18-yard crush-

Badger victory that wilted 45,000
Purdue homecoming fans.
Each team intercepted three'
passes and they threw 54 between'
them.
Fine Pass Defense
Pass defenses on both teams
were magnificent, but it was Jim
Miller's 13-yard toss to end Dave
Howard that set up Thomas' big
touchdown. The hard-charging
Badgers almost blocked a punt by
Purdue quarterback Lennie Daw-
son to get the drive started at the
Purdue 30.
The victory was Wisconsin's sev-
enth straight in its long series
with the Boilermakers and its
third in three starts this year.

END MIKE ROTUNNO finds the going rough as he attempts to
haul in a Wolverine aerial during the final period. Army de-
fensive halfback Pat Uebel interferred with Rotunno's efforts and
Michigan was awarded the ball on the Cadets' one yard line.

Battered Iowa Trips Indiana
20-6 With Surprise Backfield
.~d

IOWA CITY, Iowa, Oct. 8 OP)---
Iowa, battered and bruised a week
ago, made a swift and remark-
able recovery today for a 20-6 Big'
Ten football victory over Indiana.
The Hawks used an emergency
backfield to furnish the success-
ful therapy.
Crippled badly, after losing to
Wisconsin, 37-14, Iowa went the
distance with only 22 contestants.
Two of them, sophomore end Jim
Gibbons and senior fullback Roger
Wiegmann, were 60-minute per-
formers.
Evie's Surprise-
Coach Forest Evashevski, his
problems multiplied by the heav-
lest Iowa injury list in many se?-
sons, sprung a surprise backfield
at the Hoosiers to the delight of
the 51,976 Dad's Day fans. The
substitutes did their job well.,
Fronted by a good line, the re-
serves flashed to three first half
touchdowns for a 20-6 lead after
which the contest eased off into a
scoreless duel.
Indiana's only touchdown came
in the first qu~arter after Iowa had
gone in front 7-0 from the opening
kickoff.
The Hoosier's score came on a
