Lambda Chi Alpha and Sigma
Alpha Epsilon yesterday won the
I-M football semi-finals to gain
positions in the championship
Lambda Chi overwhelmed Phi
Delta Theta, last year's social fra-
ternity runner-up, by a score of
20-7 to win a position in the first
round playoffs which will be held
next week.
Captain Fran LeMire quarter-
backed the Lambda Chi's to their
sensational win. LeMire passednfor
two touchdowns, ran for one and
passed for two extra points. On
defense he was also outstanding,
intercepting three Phi Delt passes.

LeMire passed to Jim Pickard
for the first touchdown, and extra
point. The second Lambda Chi
touchdown came on a pass from
LeMire to Dick Good. Chi's final
tally came on a run by LeMire
and a pass by him for the extra
Phi Gamma Delta bowed out of
the playoffs when they were beat-
en by Sigma Alpha Epsilon, 12-6.
Double Passes Click
A\ double-pass play set up both
of S.A.E.'s touchdowns against the
Phi Gams. On the first of these
plays Craig Morris passed to Carl
Corneliuson who in turn passed
to Ron Norene. The play covered
forty yards. On the next play.
Morris passed to Larry Wise for a
The second of these double-pass
plays was a reverse from Morris to
Corneliuson who in turn passed to
Morris. This play was good for
about 35 yards. The second SAE
touchdown came on another dou-
ble pass from Morris to Corneliuson
to Bill Mestdagh. Again. the extra
point attempt was unsuccessful.
Fred Lyons ran back an SAE
punt for 60 yards and a touch-
down for the Phi Gams. The spec-
tacular run was for no avail as it
was called back because of a
penalty. The Phi Gams finally
scored on a pass from Jack Wheel-
er to Van King.
Zeta Beta Tau squeezed past
Delta Upsilon in overtime to win
a place in the second round play-
offs. On the first play of the
game Ivan Kushen passed to Harry
Israel for a ZBT touchdown.,
DU bounced back quickly for two
touchdowns. Jim Sergeson passed
to Bob Adams and to Bob Brown
respectively for the touchdown.
ZBT retaliated with a series of
plays which ended in their second
touchdown. ZBT finally won in
overtime play by the narrow mar-
gin of four yards.
In other games Sigma Chi beat
ATO, 12-7. Forrester beat The
Penthouse Seven, 13-0, and Tri-
angle beat Beta Theta Pi, 26-14.

too confidently, that the Wom-
en's Staff will be content to ride
on its glory, and refrain from sub-
mitting entries.
Here are this week's games:

r O WIN in football, a team must have the
desire to win.
Without this desire, players are only ma-
chines, only shells of what their real potential
offers them. Last week, Michigan had its col-
lective noses rubbed into the sod of Memorial
Stadium. Michigan was not only beaten, it was
Certainly every player did his best out there
at Champaign last week. But Michigan did not.
As a team, the Maize and Blue did not have
that desire to win-and as a result they failed
The loss has tagged Michigan from coast to
coast as just another flash in the pan. The
"experts" said that it was a string of "lucky"
games that boosted the Wolverines to the very
top rung of collegiate football. When that
string ran out at Champaign last Saturday, the
vultures were quick to devour the carcass.
Scribes the nation over gleefully pounded out
the obituary of the team "that almost fulfilled
its press clippings." Michigan became the
"chumps of the west" to many. Champaign
stuuents cheerfully predicted that the only
bowl that Michigan will ever see now would
be on a breakfast table.
The team that had electrified the nation
the week before, was now football's biggest goat.
The team that thought it could do anything
had a rude awakening to the facts of life. The
biggest fact this team forgot was that football
games are won by,60 minutes of vicious play.
Michigan was far from a vicious football team
last Saturday. They waited too long to get
tough, and when the blue chips were down-
they didn't have what it took to pull another
All of this came to be because of an opponent
that WANTED to win so badly that it did.. The

Illini were so emotionally keyed that not even
a brick wall could have stopped them . . . let
alone a Michigan team that was playing its
"flattest" football of the season.
MONDAY Ben Oosterbaan and company be-
gan picking up the pieces. The wreckage
was cleared away-the workable parts put back
in running order. The parts are all still there.
The machine will work as good as it ever did if
Ben can find some fuel.
This Saturday a team from down in Indiana
provides an opportunity to test this machine.
No one needs a history book to tell them that
the test will be anything but easy.
It doesn't take an historian to hark back to
the Michigan Stadium that grey November day
last season. The 1955 Indiana yearbook-the
Arbutus-summed it up very well indeed when
it said "The big time boys were always aware
of IU's potential. Remember the Michigan
game? A lot of Wolverines do. They wish they
had never heard of Bernie's boys. We saw a bat-
tered Wolverine after the game muttering,
13-9, 13-9."
Can Ben get the fuel to wreak revenge on
the Hoosiers? We can only hope so. Michigan
has to beat Indiana to stay in the running for
the Big Ten title and a berth in the 1956 Rose
Bowl Classic with UCLA on January 2nd in
Pasadena, California.
Not only must Michigan beat Indiana-but
it must convincingly defeat them if the torn
Maize and Blue banner is to be respected once
There is an old football adage that goes
"When Michigan loses, someone has to pay."
We hope it is Indiana that pays in full Satur-
day afternoon in the Michigan Stadium.

WASHINGTON A)- M ov i n g
swiftly to rebuild the Washing-
ton Senators, the club's new presi-
dent, Calvin Griffith, yesterday
acquired five young players from
the Boston Red Sox but had to
surrender two of Washington's old
proa, Micley Vernon and Bob
It was a 5-for-4 deal as the
Senators also gave up left handed
pitcher Johnny Schmitz and re-
serve outfielder Tommy Umphlett.
In return for these players, the
Senators acquired three pitchers
and two outfielders, all 25 or
younger. The biggest name among
the five belongs to outfielder Karl
Olson, 25, whom Griffith already
has labeled Washington's center
dhrisley Other Outfielder
The other outfielder is Neil
Chrisley, 22, a lefthander who bat-
ted .320 with Nashville of the
Southern Assn. last year. The
three pitchers; all righthanders,
are Dick Brodowski, 25,, Al Cur-
tis, 23, and Truman Clevenger, 23.
Vernon twice won the American
League batting championship and
wound up last year at .301.
Brodowski made 16 relief ap-
pearances with the Red Sox last
year, winning one and losing none.

To start things off, a coed won
the contest withra 12-3 record,
while the best our experts could
do was 9-6. Then to complete
the humiliation, the Daily Women's
staff, on a challenge by the Sports
desk, submitted its entries, and, as
you may have guessed by now,
its average was higher than that
of the sports staff.
The twelve women entries com-
piled an overall record of 104-76,
for an average of .577, while the
sports staff averaged only .466
with a 77-88 record.

efforts the "experts" will once
again attempt to live up to their
name this week, hoping, but not

'M' Practice
Gains Spirit
For Indiana
The Wolverines pr acticed in
earnest yesterday to try and re-
gain some of their early season
form, still remembering last week-
end's tragic episode at Champaign.
Again this week Michigan can-
not possibly hope to be at full
strength. Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan is definitelyryorried over the
left halfback situation.
Terry Barr received an addi-
tional wrench in his charley-horse
and Jim Pace is still suffering
from a sprained ankle. However,
Pace may get the starting assign-
ment at halfback in the Indiana
Dave Hill was seen on crutches
yesterday afternoon, but practiced
anyway. Lou Baldacci is still limp-
ing and Tom Hendricks received a
terrific clout on the head at Cham-
paign. Both will be ready for ac-
tion Saturday, however.
.Qosterbaan sent the regulars
through extensive offensive drills,
which were followed by a scrim-
mage against the reserves.
In concluding an afternoon of
rough contact work, the squad then
turned its attention to a short
work-out on the tackling dummies.
Here the Wolverines began to
show a little of the spirit which
will be needed this Saturday, as it
seemed that each time a pair of
cleats dug into the turf and a body
dove forward, there was a Hoosier
running on the' receiving end.

Bud Wilkinson's top-ranked
Oklahoma Sooners received word
Monday "to go ahead and make
plans to compete in the Orange
Bowl" from Reeves Peter, Com-
missioner of the Big Seven Con-
ference. The Sooners are the first
team to receive a major bowl bid.
The Sooners last visit to the bowl
was in 1953, when they beat Mary-
land, mythical "national cham-
pion," 7-0. Oklahoma's probable

DETROIT M)-The Detroit Free
Press said Tuesday night an agree-
ment will be signed shortly be-
tween the Big Ten and the Pacific
Coast Conference to bar "in-per-
son" scouting of possible Rose Bowl
football foes.
Scouting, the paper reported,

will be limited to the use of films
of two regular season contests.
The suggestion first came from
UCLA to Kenneth L. "Tug" Wil-
son, commissioner of the Big Ten
and was relayed to officials at
Michigan and Michigan State, the

This Has Happened .,.
One of the most outstanding
performances, ever, in I-M com-
petition occured this fall when
Gomberg House won the residence
halls cross country title. The red-
shirted athletes "walked" away
with all honors by taking a first,
second, sixth, seventh, and eighth
with its five entries.
Riskey was amused by an un-
usual happening also this fall,
when a team stormed to the I-M
Building to protest a touch foot-
ball game.
It seemed that with the score
tied with three minutes to play an
interference penalty was called on
a long pass into the end zone. The
ball was placed down on the one
yard line and a touchdown soon
resulted. The eventual losers
claimed that the referee was not
in a position to make a decision
and that an infraction was not
I-M rules wisely deny a team's
,ight to protest a judgement of an
official. The losing team did have
a legitimate protest, I-M admin-
istrators admitted, which had been
completely overlooked.
College football rules state that
on an interference play in the end

zone, the ball is td be placed one
yard out with a first down in
order. I-M rules, however, say that
the penalty is one-halt the length
of the field from the line of scrim-
mage. The protesters had a hidden
gripe, after all, and the remaining
three minutes of the contest would
be played over.
Off They Go . .
So far this season with two
sports completely finished and twc
more at significant stages, there
are many familiar faces among the
I-M leaders.
