Maryland, Oklahoma Gain
Top Ranking; Navy Fourth

THOUGH THE Wolverines fell from first to third place in this
week's Associated Press poll there are many reasons why Michigan
fans can be happy this morning.
Most heartening is the r'evitalized offensive attack. After the
initial quarter, Michigan dominated the game almost completely.
This was most evident in the third quarter when Minnesota had the
ball only three times - and was forced to punt on each occasion. For
the first time this season the Wolverines were able to consistently
move the ball. The winning touchdown came after a drive of 48
yards in ten plays; the first score resulted after Michigan had
marched 60 yards in only 6 plays.
A New Star for Michigan...
THEN THERE was the fine play of quarterback Jim Van Pelt.
Substituting for the injured Jim Maddock, the sophomore dis-
played the coolness of a veteran. He led the team so well that he
may have earned himself a starting berth. Van Pelt completed five
of 11 passes, good for one touchdown and 76 yards. He also kicked
the extra point which supplied the victory.
But Van Pelt was not the only one who turned in an outstanding
performance. 'Terry Barr accounted for 46 yards on the ground,
scored the first touchdown, and blocked Minnesota's try for the
extra point. Reliable Tony Branoff was a threat all day as he picked
up 57 yards rushing. Tom Maentz had a wonderful day: the big end
snared Van Pelt's touchdown pass and three others for a total of 57
Another factor in Michigan's one-point victory was its poise.
The Wolverines, instead of cracking when behind by 13 points,
increased the pressure. They
forced the Gophers to make errors
and then were able to capitalize on
the mistakes. It is only a very good
team than can come from behind
as Michigan did last Saturday.f
After a shaky start, the Maize
and Blue's defense performed
more than creditably. Minnesota
had seven first downs - 12 less
than the Maize and Blue - and,
could gain only 44 yards on the
ground in the second half.F
To add further joy in the Michi-
gan camp, no serious injuries
resulted at Minneapolis. Jim Bates
and Mike Rotunno are still havingx
trouble with their legs but they x
will be ready come game-time this
When Ron Kramer will return to
the lineup could become the-
favorite guessing game on they
campus. No one seems to know%
when the star end will return to JIM VAN PELT
The Unmentioned Subject...
THE BIG TEN championship and the Pasadena trip that goes with
it, is a subject that no one talks about at Ferry Field. Be that
as it may . . . but things are looking pretty good for the Wolverines
at the moment. Ohio State, sporting a 26-12 win over Wisconsin,
and Michigan are the only two unbeaten teams in the conference.
Since the Buckeyes can not make a return trip to the West Coast
and' . . well, as I said, things are looking pretty good for the
Barr is the leading ground gainer for the first five games with
179 yards in 38 attempts, an average of 4.7 per carry. Branoff is
the workhorse of the team - 46 rushes - for 116 yards. Jim Pace
sports the best average-5.3-with 112 yards on 21 carries.
Kramer still leads the team in scoring with 25 points on three
touchdowns and eight conversions. Barr is one point behind with
four tallies.
In the passing department, Maddock has 134 yards to his credit
while Van Pelt has tossed for 125 yards. Maddock has completed
seven of 23 while Van Pelt has succeeded in eight of 16 attempts.
Branoff heads the kickers with an average of 44 yards per punt.
Kramer is fourthon the squad with 365 yards in ten boots.
A statistic that means nothing: Michigan has lost the flip-of-the-
coin in all but the Minnesota game.
Former Ring Greats Honored
NEW YORK W)--Ten former ring greats, including Gene
Tunney, Mickey Walker, Benny Leonard and Harry Greb, have
been elected to boxing's Hall of Fame. The announcement was
made Monday at the dedication ceremony for the Hall of Fame
at the Ring magazine offices. Other named were Sam Langford,
the Boston Tar baby, who fought from 1902 to 1923; former
featherweight champions Terry McGovern and Abe Attell and
Barbtados Joe Walcott, onetime welterweight king. These four
were voted in by the old timers' committee of 20.

CALM AND COOL-HEADED when the pressure's on, it took
Jim Maddock (26) just one game to demonstrate his value to
the Wolverine grid squad.

Michigan Overshadowed
These two overwhelming victor-
ies overshadowed the performance
of Michigan, the pacesetter for the
past two weeks, but they evidently
left some uncertainty in the minds
of the sports writers and broad-
casters participating in the week-
ly Associated Press ranking poll.
the difficulty of diagnosing the
other team's defense. "It's very
hard, once you get in a game, to
gain the proper perspective.", he
points out. "Very few quarter-
backs can correctly interpret the
defensive setup every time."
One of Maddock's pet peeves is
the popular conception that foot-
ball players are mere uneducated
hunks of muscle. "Everybody on
the team loves to play football,"
he emphasizes, "but we realize
that it's not the most important
thing in life.

ful imagination.

Iowa had just rolled up two
quick, stunning touchdowns, to
take the lead on Michigan's young
gridders, 13-0, last autumn.
An apathetic mixture of groans
and wry laughter emerged from
the Michigan stands. This looked
like an "off" year for the Wolver-
ines, who had been crushed by
Army the previous Saturday,
Then something happened -
something which few people pres-
ent that day could put their fing-
ers on. In one mighty effort, the
men in Blue put together a couple
of six-pointers themselves - and
made both of the extra points -
to win, 14-13.
The leader of this vaunted dis-
play was a sturdy, untried young
quarterback with a number 26 on
his back.

"There's no doubt but what that
was my biggest thrill playing for
Michigan," said Jim Maddock.
"I'll never forget that day for the
rest of my life."
Maddock, a 5-11, 190-pound
junior from Chicago, enjoyed
quite a successful high school ca-
reer in the Windy City. Playing
for Fenwick High in the same
backfield with another Michigan
back-Ed Shannon-he received
all-Catholic League honors at
While in high school he also
played guard on the Fenwick bas-
ketball team, averaging about 10
pounts a game while Jim Barron,
now a Michigan cage star, was
copping most of the laurels on
the same team.
Maddock enjoys calling signals
for the Wolverines, but stresses

The Los Angeles Rams and the

Bears may be on their way up.
The Rams handed the Detroit
Lions their fifth straight loss beat-

gave thr Rams undisputed right
to first place in the Western Di-

The Cleveland Browns are still
tied with Pittsburgh for the East-
ern Division lead as both teams
won last weekend, the Browns roll-
ing over the Green Bay Packers,
41-10, and Pittsburgh beating the
New York Giants, 19-17.
Comparing the two teams, the
Browns seem to hold the edge
over Pittsburgh despite their equal
4-1 status. Both teams shave

Cleveland has displayed a strong
defense that has allowed only 44

Bears to Play Rams
The Bears play the Rams next
week and this should be a decid-
ing contest for both teams. If the
Rams win, their supremacy is all
the more strengthened, but if the
Bears show themselves stronger,
it would be a harsh setback for
the leaders and 'a key victory on

Lloyd House, behind the aerial
artistry of Bruce Fox, dumped
Hinsdale, 20-0, in the top game
of yesterday's I-M football slate.
The first time Lloyd got the
ball, it scored on a 30 yard pass
from Fox to Don Dueweke in the
end Zone. Fox hit Dueweke again
for the extra point, and from there
on it was all Lloyd.
Lloyd, now one of the four un-
defeated teams, is boasting a 3-0
record. Since it meets winless Hu-
ber next week, it is an overwhelm-
ing favorite to finish the regular
season undefeated.
Lloyd has an excellent chance
to repeat as residence halls foot-

Highly touted Gomberg had ant

Big Reds won by forfeit.

Dick Peterson accounted for twol

Dick Ericksen and the other on a

George Rakolta also crossed, the
stripe for Adams.
