Michigan's great football players.
JIM PACE

In weather finally touched with
a football chill, the Michigan grid-t
ders got down to the serious busi-
ness of getting ready for Minne-
sota.
The coaches -kept hammering
at the fact that the Gophers will
really be up for this one. A year
ago Minnesota came down from
the North sporting an undefeated
record. Underdog Michigan gave
them a 34-0 beating in one of the
real upsets in the Big 10.
The Minnesota veterans haven't
forgotten that game, and will be
out for blood on Saturday. As a
reminder to this, the pictures of
these returnees from last year's
Gopher squad are posted on the
locker room walls with quotes run-
ning along the lines ... "Michigan
is good, but they're not unbeat-
able, and we are going to be the
ones to do it,"
Warmath Waiting ,
math has been thinking about the
muth has 'oeen thinking about the
coming game since he walked out
of Michigan Stadium last fall.
Posted in his office is the result
of the 1954 encounter and right
underneath it the 1955 game with
big question marks in place of
the scores.
The Wolverine veterans realize,
too, that the tables are turned
this year, and that it is going to
take more than plays to win this
one. Plenty of spirit was appar-
ent yesterday as the varsity de-
fense was tried out against some
of Minnesota's offensive plays.
Injury List Smaller
The injury list is growing small-
er day by day. Fullback Dave
Hill -seems to be back in top
shape, but Lou Baldacci is still
having trouble with his ankle.
The ends are the worst hit posi-
tion with only Charlie Brooks
managing to stay unbruised over
the weekend. Other than this
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan indicat-
ed that everyone except Ron Kra-
mer will be ready to go this week-
end.

By JOHNSON WOODS
Ever since the fall of 1954 there
has been constant talk about an
Arkansas Traveler by the name
of Jim Pace.
From the first day of practice
freshman coach Wally Weber and
assistants were amazed by the
tremendous speed and unconquer -
able desire of this lithe youth to
play football.
At first he was crude in the
execution of Michigan's intricate
offensive formations and shifts,
but swiftly acquired the technique
of the single wing, and began to
splash off long yardage against
the Freshman and Junior Varsity
defensive units.

elts Edge ATO In I- Grid Contest;'
POther Squads EarnTop Playoff Spots

During spring practice Pace
continued to show brilliant play
and caught the eye of many of
the news agencies and magazine
publications. Injured in the first
few minutes of the final spring
scrimmage in the Stadium, he was
unable to show his abilities against
the Varsity units.
This fall, Michigan was picked
to place high in the national rank-
ings, and Jim Pace was picked to
contribute quite prominently to
the Michigan effort.
In the Missouri game, Pace lived
up to his press notices and put
on a dazzling display of broken-
field running in the few minutes
he appeared on the field.
Gains Called Back
Again against Army and North-
western, he broke away for long
yardage although having most of
his gains called back. In the
process he became somewhat of a
crowd-pleaser as chants intermit-
tently went up, "We want Pace!"
Pace never thought he would be
coming to a school like Michigan
and even now it all seems like a
dream to him. Even now he is so
overawed by Michigan, its tradi-
tion and size that he finds it
difficult to lose himself in foot-
ball.
A history major and a sopho-
more in Literary School, he
would like to play professional
football or baseball after gradua-
ting and then go into coaching.
A Sense of Morals
Jim Pace is a religious boy and
although on the way to becoming
a great sports hero knows that one
must keep his sense of morals.
As everyone knows, Pace has
had over 150 yards and one touch-
down called back. He was asked if
he was disappointed because of
these costly penalties.
The answer was no, it did not
disappoint him very much, but if
the fate of winning and losing
those games depended on that
yardage and those touchdowns, it
would have hurt him very deeply.

Delta .Tau Delta, behind the
:flashy passing of Jack Demorest,
edged Alpha Tau Omega in an
air duel yesterday, 20-19, to gain
the first-place playoffs in the
I-M Social Fraternity League.
The Delts had to fight all the
way for their victory, however, as
ATO had its own passing wizard in
Dick Davidson, who almost pulled
the game out of the fire. Neither
team was forced to punt, as they
both scored every time they got
their hands on the ball.
A Demorest to Ray Hockstead
pass, covering 30 yards, got the
scoring under way, and Vic
Krause tallied the all-important
extra point. ATO came right
back, as Davidson hit Charlie
Gunn in the end zone, but the
extra point try failed.
Demorest Scores Seven
Demorest scored the second
lta Tau Delta touchdown on a
yard run, and added the decid-
cg point on another run. Alpha
u Omega took the -second-half
ckoff, and marched to the Delt's
yard line, where Dave Ward
red in a Davidson pass for
core. Again the try for point!

Sigma Phi Epsilon also gained
the first-place playoffs, as it de-
feated Beta Theta Pi, 20-0. Al-
though both teams had 2-1 re-
cords, the point spread between
Sig Eps' victories and defeats was
greater than that of Beta Theta
Pi's, and thus it was chosen as
league champs.
Excellent Passing
In a day that featured sterling
passing performances, George
Rich of Phi Delta Theta proved no
exception, as he led his teammates
to a 19-0 win over Phi Sigma Del-
ta, in another top league play-
off duel. Rich threw -touchdown
passes to Dick Little, Bill Mac-
Farland, and Andy Samosluk, and
accounted for the lone extra point
with an end run.
Phi Gamma Delta, paced by
former Varsity halfback Jack
Wheeler, smashed Delta Kappa
Epsilon, 19-0. Wheeler, operating
from tailback, ran 20 yards for
one touchdown, and also hit pay-
dirt on passes to Fred Lyons and
Van King.
In a tight defensive battle, Phi
Kappa Psi edged Theta Delta Phi,
7-6, and also gained the playoffs.
Bill Myer hit Bill Roeder for Phi
Psi's touchdown, and a Myer to

Gordon Busby pass clicked for the
deciding point.
Heartbreaking Loss
Phi Epsilon Pi, a new fraterni-
ty on campus, and participating
in its first I-M game, lost a heart-
breaker to Theta Delta Chi, 2-0.
With less than a minute to go,
Roland King got caught behind his
own goal for the deciding points.
In another passing exhibition,
Fran LeMire led Lambda Chi Al-
pha to a 12-0 win over Alpha Ep-
silon Pi. Dick Heusel and Dick
Good were on the receiving ends
of LeMire's TD throws.
In other fraternity games, The-
ta Xi blanked Phi Kappa Tau,
7-0; Chi Psi whitewashed Phi
Kappa Sigma, 12-0; Delta Upsilon
behind Jim Surgeson's passing
and running, beat Chi Phi in a
high-scoring affair, 26-12; Alpha
Sigma Phi edged Trigon, 13-11;

Parker Will
Remain Coach
At Detroit
DETROIT (MP)-President Edwin
J. Anderson of the winless Detroit
Lions football team has expressed
confidence in head coach Buddy
Parker.
"Rumors . . . that the Detroit
Football Company contemplates a
change in its head coaching posi-
tion are positively groundless," An,
derson's statement said.
It continued:
"Vicious rumors have been start-
ed that we have contacted coach
Ivy Williamson of Wisconsin. I,
personally, do not know coach
Williamson, and I have had no
contact, directly or indirectly, with
coach Williamson at any time.
"Coach Parker is our head
coach, and will remain so."
In Wisconsin, Williamson term-
ed the rumor "utterly ridiculous."
