Michigan Captain Bill MacFar-
land, injured in Saturday night's
hockey opener with McGill, should
be ready for this weekend's all
important two game series with
North Dakota.
Trainer Carl Isaacson reported
yesterday that the Wolverine
star center's ankle injury is not
as serious as was earlier believed.
He diagnosed it as an ordinary
sprain and said that if it continued
to improve at the rate at which
it has so far, MacFarland will be
available for at least limited duty.

third period of the game when

The Browns are in.
The Cleveland wrapped up its
sixth straight Eastern Division
title Sunday by rolling over the
Pittsburgh Steelers, 30-7.
The Washington Redskins, close
behind Cleveland a week ago lost
their thin title hopes when they
fell to the New York Giants, 27-
20. This loss dropped Washington
a game and a half behind Cleve-
land, eliminating all possibility'of
catching up.
Giants Are Spoilers
The Giants, incidentally, showed
up as the team to fear as the sea-
son drew to a close.
They scared Cleveland last week
by playing them to a 35-35 tie.
The crushing of Washington Sun-
day wound up their role as spoilers.
The burst of late season strength
also improvedNew sYork's position
in the standings, bringing them
from last to a respectable third.
Cleveland's past supremacy in
the Eastern Division has to a large
part been dice to the quarterback-

ing of Otto Graham, and it went
the same this season. Cleveland
was not rated as the team to beat
this year until Graham poined the
club just before the first game of
the season.
It only took him about a game
to warm up and Cleveland again
looked like the champs of the
West in Doubt
Meanwhile in the Western Div-
ision, Cleveland's opponent for the
world championship has yet to
be decided. The only definite thing
to be said is it won't be the De-
troit Lions again this year.
Los Angeles and Chicago both
won last Sunday, but Los Angeles
still holds on to its precious half
game lead, which very well may
be the deciding margin.
Los Angeles had no trouble with
the Colts, beating them 20-14. The
loss knocked Baltimore from the
competition for first place. The
Bears, however, had to fight an
uphill battle all the way against
the last place Lions, finally de-
feating them in the last five
minutes by the margin of an extra
point, 21-20.
The Lions had a comparatively
good chance to salvage the con-
test with less than a minute re-
maining if Doak Walker could have
made good a 26 yard field goal
attempt. The kick was wide, how-
ever, and the miss secured the,
game for the determined Bears.

Next week's games, the last of
the season, will decide the West-
ern Division crown. Los Angeles,
with its slim lead, must play the
tougher opponent on paper.
The Rams will meet Green Bay,
in third place, while the Bears
play the fifth place Philadelphia
Eagles. Both teams play on home'
soil, giving them that advantage.
Here are some more facts: the
Packers beat Los Angeles at their
last meeting, 30-28---the Packers
have won six games and lost five.
The Eagles have whipped the
Cleveland Browns, $3-17, and have
tied and beaten the Chicago Cards,
the team which humbled the Bears,
40-7, on Thanksgiving weekend.
The Eagles have a 4-6-1 record.
There are the opponents. Both
Los Angeles and Chicago are
strong, and all Ios Angeles had to
do is win. Chicago must win and
pray for a Packer upset.
The other games this weekend
saw Philadelphia beating the
Cards, 27-3, and Green Bay walk-
ed over San Francisco, 28-7.

MacFarland collided feet first
with the boards behind the Mc-
Gill net, after being foiled in an
attempt to score. He left the ice
under his own power, but went
straight to the locker room, caus-
ing much anxiety among the
Michigan fans.
MacFarland, however, was back
on skates again Sunday to exer-
cise the ankle and also skated at
yesterday's regular practice ses-
Coach Vic Heyliger, meanwhile,
is not taking any chances. In case
MacFarland can't play, he plans
to use sophomore Don McIntosh
in his place on the first line and
to move handiy man Neil Buchanan
into McIntosh's slot on the third
Heyliger Pleased
Aside from MacFarland's injury,
Michigan came through the opener
in fine shape. Considering it was
the first game of the season, Hey-
liger was pleased with his team's
showing. "We were a little ragged
around both nets at times, but
this should improve with time,"'he
The North Dakota outfit, ac-
cording to Heyliger, will give Mich-
igan some of the stiffest compe-
tition it will have to face this
year. He stressed that they are a
vastly improved team; over that
which suffered 7-0 and 7-2 de-
feats in Ann Arbor last February.
The two games are of special
importance in the Western Inter-
collegiate Hockey League stand-
ings since they are each worth
two points, because they are the
only meetings between the two
schools this year.
North Daliota will be fresh.from
a 5-4 victory over Michigan State's
ice squad last Saturday. Michi-
gan's other entry in the WHL,
Michigan Tech, won two exhibition
games over Port Arthur, Ontario
last weekend.



OSU's Freeman Scores 40
In Last Night's Cage Activity

By The Associated Press
Even All-American Robin Free-
man wasn't enough to prevent
Ohio State from going down to
defeat, 76-67, before a sharp-shoot-
ing Vanderbilt five at Columbus
last night.
Freeman hit for 40 points, mak-
ing sixty per-cent of his field-goal
attempts, on his usual wide varie-
ty of deadly shots.
Vanderbilt jumped off to an early
lead of seven points at the end of
the first quarter, and never trailed
in the game. A last-quarter rally,
led by Freeman, brought the Buck-
eyes within five points of the Com-
modores with only four and a half
minutes left in the game.
Four of Vanderbilt's starting
five hit double figures, as the team
made 24 field-goals in 48 tries
for a smart fifty per-cent effi-
ciency. Guard Al Rochelle led the
way with 23 points.
At the free throw line the Com-
modores, who were 17th in the
nation last year, made seventy-six
per-cent of their charity tosses.

In Lawrence, Kansas, anothei
Big Ten school went down to de-
feat. Kansas, a favorite in the
Big Seven title chase, opened its
basketball season with a 91-70 vic-
tory over Northwestern. This was
Northwestern's second defeat, hav
ing been beaten by Western Michi-
gan on Saturday night.
Wisconsin Tops Notre Dame
Wisconsin, the other Big Ten
school in action, beat Notre Dame
70-66 in a~ close game. This was
Notre Dame's second defeat, fol-
lowing a surprise by Detroit Uni-
versity last week.
