Anderson Holds Lead
In a battle of the unbeaten, An-

Hinsdale had much more trouble

Upsets Mar Readers
'Grid Picks' A verages

Two Daily readers managed to
overcome Saturday's storm of up-
sets, and tied for first place in
the third weekly "Grid Picks"
Bill Moeller, of 707 Oxford, and
Bernie Tolpin, of 301 N. State each
posted records of 11-4., While us-
ually not good enough to win, the
11-4 marks were phenomenal when
compared with the other entries.
Percentages below .500 were not
uncommon due to the amazing
performances of last week's under-
dog elevens.
The Daily sports staffers, in par-
ticular, took quite a nosedive. The
consensus record slipped from .833
last week to an overall .711 thisj
time. Associate Sports Editor Al-
an Eisenberg led the pack with a
9-6 won-lost mark.
Moeller and Tolpin, this week's
winners, will each receive two free
tickets for either "Trial," which
opens Saturday at the Michigan,
or "The Return of Jack Slade,"
which will begin at the State this

CONFUSING is the only word which can adequately describe the
Michigan football team. For three successive Saturdays, now,
the Wolverines' opponents have come out ahead in the statistics
department but have always been on the short end of the score.
In the Northwestern game, for example, the Wildcats picked
up four more first downs than the Maize and Blue, and had a slight'
advantage in total yardage. But all the visitors could pick in the
scoring colun was a meager two points.
How does Michigan do it, then?
Defense: Secret of success ...
GUESS it's no secret that it is the defensive unit that is mainly
responsible for the present inflated national position and a share
of the Big Ten lead with a 2-0 mark. Against the Spartans, it was a
blocked kick and a recovered fumble that led to the scores. The
following week, the recovery of eight Army fumbles was the major
factor in the lopsided victory.
The Northwestern contest followed the same pattern. Early in
the first quarter, tackle Al Sigman-fell on a loose ball on the WildcatI
12-yard line. Three plays later, Earl Johnson went over right guard
for the touchdown.
It was not until the fourth quarter that the Maize and Blue
could again dent the losers goal line. Between the two tallies Michi-
gan's defensive line stood up brilliantly. Three times in the second
quarter Northwestern drove into Wolverine territory (getting to the
10 on one occasion)-and was thrown back each time.
After the intermission the visitors again applied the pressure.
Northwestern marched 67 yards in 13 plays for a first down on the
Wolverine 13. Four thrusts later Michigan took over on its six-yard
And the final proof, of course, is that the Wolverines have not
given up a touchdown in the last two games and. have had only 18
points scored against them all season.
Offense Must Improve..
BUT THE Maize and Blue have been far from impressive on the
offense side; maybe that's why Bennie Oosterbaan had his team
run through some plays in yesterday's abbreviated practice. What
the genial coach has planned nobody seems to know-but he'd better
come up with something pretty soon.
The number one problem at the moment is the weak passing
attack. Michigan completed only two of seven passes against Lou
Saban's team and 16 of 37 for the year. More. than half of the suc-
cessful aerials-nine, to be exact-were in the Missouri game.
A solution to the above dilemma would no doubt help the 'run-
ning game. Any football novice knows that when a team is not a
threat through the airlanes its ground game will run into trouble. The
defensive unit doesn't have to worry too much about the air attack
and can concentrate on the running game.
Injuries to key men have not helped. Oosterbaan has been forced
time and time again to call on reserves to replace injured first-
stringers. Tom Maentz, Jerry Goebel, Jim Bates, Bill MacPhee, Lou
Baldacci, Dave Hill, Ed Shannon, Ron Kramer and a host of others
have been forced out of the lineup due to injuries.
The only serious casualties in the Northwestern game seem to be
Jim Maddock and Mike Rotunno; Maddock has a hip bruise and
Rotunno a bad ankle. Concerning Kramer: he will go to Minneapolis
but whether he will play nobody seems to know.

They're all professionals, they're

So it goes in the National Foot-
ball League. Last weekend saw
what looked like the recovery of
two slow starting would-be cham-
pions, along with the first loss for
the only previously undefeated
club in the league.
Also thrown in was the fourth
loss in a row for the now hopeless
Detroit Lions, last year the champs
of their division, this year winless.

The game was played in rain and
mud, and neither team could show
much effectiveness.
The Giants, however, did the
scoring, seven points on a 61 yard
drive plus conversion and three
more on Ben Agajanian's 28 yard
field goal, thereby raising hopes
in New York a little.
Detroit Still Disappoints
One of the hardest things to
understand in the pro league so
far is how a team with the poten-
tial talent of the Detroit Lions
can go through one third of the
season without winning a game.
But the Lions dropped another
last Sunday, a heartbreaker lost
in the. last quarter to the San
Francisco 49ers, 27-24.
Leading 24-6 at the beginning
of the fourth quarter, the Lions
defense fizzled under the pres-
sure of Y. A. Tittle's passing arm
and the fleet legs and inspired
play of rookie halfback Dickie
Moegle, and the lead melted away
with surprising speed, leaving the
Lions winless and sole possessors
of the Western Division cellar.
The Cleveland Browns remained
in contention for Eastern Division
first place honors by dropping one
of their rivals, the Washington
Redskins, 24-14. Meanwhile in
the only game Saturday night,
Pittsburgh remained tied with
Cleveland in the first place slot
by beating Philadelphia, 13-7.
