Spartan Mentor Picked
Top Coach of the Year


New Mat, Scoring Enliven Wrestling

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-This is a big year
for Hugh 'Duffy' Daugherty.
The 40-year-old coach of Michi-
gan State's Rose Bowl-bound
Spartans today was named football
Coach of the Year by his fellow
mentors and by the biggest mar-
gin in the 21-year old history of
the poll conducted annually by
the Scripps-Howard newspapers.
Daugherty accumulated 199 first
place. ballots of the 492 cast by
members of the American Football
Coaches Assn. He was picked for
second by 86 and third by 36.
The former Army major's closest
rival was Bud Wilkinson of Okla-
homa's top-ranking, all-conquer-
ing Sooners, with 54 first place
votes. Woody Hayes of Ohio State
was third followed by Paul (Bear)
Bryant, Texas A&M, Abe Martin,
Texas Christian, John Michelosen,
Pittsburgh, Bobby Dodd, Georgia

Tatum, Maryland, Bowden Wyatt,
Tennessee, Terry Brennan, Notre
Dame and Ara Parseghian, Miami
A line coach under Biggie Munn

As fans watch coach Cliff Keen's
matmen in action at Yost field-
house this season, they will notice
the new look in college wrestling.
Instead of the 24 foot square
mat previously used, the Wolver-
ines will employ a new circular one
that is 25 feet in diameter. First
coming into contact with it in
last year's holiday tournament at
Wilkes-Barre, Pa., Coach Keen
liked it so much that he will put
it to use in all home competition.
Positions Varied
Each individual match is made
up of three separate periods of
three minutes each. In the first
of these the wrestlers face each
other in a standing position and
try to get a "takedown" on their
At the start of the second period,
the grapplers kneel side by side
with the ,man who is given the
advantage having one arm on his
opponent's wrist and the other
around his waist. The third period
starts in this same position with
the other man having the opening
Two points are given for a
"takedown," where the opponent

is brought to the mat; . "near
fall," when the man's shoulders
are pinned for a little less than
the two seconds required for a
fall; and a "reversal," where one
man gains the upper position after
being on the bottom, all in one
Points for Holding
One point is given for an "es-
cape" from a hold into a neutral
position; "riding time," when one
man has been on top more than
a minute longer than his opponent

was on top of him; and for a,
"predicament," which is almost the
same as a "near fall" except that
the pinning position is held for an
even shorter period of time.
At the end of a contest the
points are tallied to obtain the
decision unless there has been a
"pin," which automatically ends
the match.
In the team scoring a fall is
awarded five points, a decision
three, and a tie, two points to each

good in his second year as a head
coach. In his initial season at
the Spartan helm in 1954, Daugh-

only to Michigan in the second
game of the season 14-7.

Michigan's hockey team invades
Grand Forks tonight for the first1
of a two-game weekend series with
the North Dakota Sioux, ,unbeaten
in their first six contests.
After an opening tie against Re-
gina, North Dakota has rolled to
twin victories over Michigan State
and University of Minnesota
(Duluth branch), and have also
beaten Regina in a return game.
The Sioux are coached by Cliff
'Fido' Purpur, a one-time team-
mate of Wolverine coach Vic Hey-
liger on the Chicago Black Hawks.
MacFarland To Start
Star center Bill MacFarland
will be in his starting position
tonight, although he may be limit-
ed a bit by his still-weak ankle.
Tom Rendall's injured tendon has
not responded to treatment, so
Heyliger plans to move Neil Bu-
chanan up to Rendall's second line
center spot.
Coach Heyliger said that North
Dakota "will be one of our tough-
est series this year. They are a
strong team, with a lot of-veter-
Dakota Veterans Back
Nine lettermen are back to bol-
ster North Dakota's ranks this
year. Leading the parade is junior
wing Bill Reichert. As a sopho-
more last season, Reichert was the
team's leading scorer, netting 32
goals in 28 games. Also returning
From last year's first line is another
junior, center Mike Castellano, a
fine stick-handler and the fourth
leading scorer from last season.
Teaming with Reichert and Cas-
tellano will be another letterman,
senior Wilf Shannon. Top defense-
men for the Sioux are Ed Williams,

a 5'9", 180-pound sophomore, and
Walt Running, a rugged performer,
back for his third season. Strength-
ening the defense lines are sopho-
mores Mac Gibbs and letterman
Jerry Culbertson.
Second Line Strong
Heading North Dakota's second
front line is sophomore Jim Rid-
ley, the leading goal-scorer thus
far this year. Centering this trio
is double letterwinner John Wade,
who has consistently shown top
ability. The other wing is Bob
Kochevar, another of Coach Pur-
pur's outstanding sophs.
Goalie for the squad 'is Tom
Yurkovich, a junior who was spec-
tacular in several games last year.
In six contests this season, Yurko-
vich has yielded but 2.3 goals per
game average.
North Dakota is well on its way
to bettering their 14-13-1 record
of last year, which gained them
sixth place in the seven team
Western Intercollegiate Hockey
League. Michigan's goal this week-
end will be to continue its winning
ways, and in doing so, to bring the
Sioux back 'down to earth.'

Final Shot Wins Thrilling 1950 Tilt



Determination, scoring balance,
and a bowlegged guard were the
ingredients for what is considered
the most dazzling win ever scored
by a Michigan, cage quintet.
Most V alucable
Catcher Roy Campanella, who
made a tremendous comeback
to lead the Brooklyn Dodgers
to another pennant and their
first World Series victory, yes-
terday was named the National
League's most valuable player
for 1955. He nosed out team-
mate Duke Snider for the hon-
A tip-in by 5'11" Chuck Murray
in the very last second of the
early season clash, gave the Wol-
verines a 69-67 upset win over
Indiana on January 9, 1950.
After trailing, 15-10, early in
the game, the Michigan hoopsters
forged a 33-25 halftime edge, and

held it until midway in the last'
period when deadly shooting by a'
game Hoosier squad knotted the
score at 49-49.
The lead changed hands four
times before Indiana tied the count
at 66 apiece on Chuck Meyer's
charity toss. R Se
Stage Set
With a little over a minute to
go, the Wolverines froze the ball'
with the hope of scoring in the
closing seconds. Forward Don Mc-
Intosh tried a shot with five sec-
onds remaining, but the attempt
was wide.
The rebound was booted out of
bounds by Indiana to set the stage
for Murray's timely basket.
With three and one-half seconds
remaining, Jim Skala took the ball
out of bounds and fired. The ball
rolled over the back of the basket
into the hands of Murray, the
smallest man on the floor, who
tipped it in just as the buzzer

annexed its first Big Ten title in
19 years by trouncing a good Iowa
quintet, 51-35, as eleven men broke
into the scoring column.
Climaxing the most successful
cage season in Michigan history,
the Wolverines, on March 5, 1929,
won its third Big Ten crown in
four years by handing Wisconsin,
the conference co-champioAs, a
37-22 setback.
March 7, 1927 saw Iowa become
the stepping stone for the Wolver-
ines first undisputed Big Ten
