Cards, Lions
Pull Upsets;
Pace NFL
Upsets have been commonplace
and pre-season predicitions have
been thrown out the window after
the opening two weeks of the
National Professional Football
League season.
The present standings find the
undefeated Detroit Lions and Chi-
cago Cardinals on the top of the
standings in their respective
leagues. Both of these teams were
picked by the "expert." to finish
at or very close to the bottom of
the standings, but they are now
giving the "know-it-alls" ulcers.
Quarterbacks Surprise
Surprisingly enough, the same
factor, good quarterbacking, has
been the key weapon for both

Texan who quarterbacked the

In last Sunday's game when the
;Lions upset the heavily-favored
Baltimore Colts, Layne threw for
a spectacular 236 yards.
Another southerner has been
the kingpin of the Chicago Car-
dinal offense. Lamar McHan who
quarterbacked at the University of
Arkansas has finally been able to
put the explosive running of the
Cardinal backfield to goo use. Last
Sunday, Ollie Matson, Dave Mann
and Johnny Olszewski combined
with McHan to upset the New York
Giants, 35-27. McHan passing ac-
counted for 136 yards and two

troubles have been plagueing last
year's champions.
Browns Have Trouble
Paul Brown's Cleveland Browns
are having trouble in finding a
replacement for their previous
field-general, Otto'. Graham, who
retired. Quarterbacks George Rat-
terman and Babe Parilli have only
been able to lead the Brown of-
fense to three touchdowns in the
first two games.
The Los Angeles Rams have a
problem of too many good quarter-
backs. Coach Sid Gillman has
Norm Van Broklin, Bill Wade and
Rudy Bukich to choose from and
apparently he is not concentrating
on any one. Last Sunday the
Rams' inconsistent offense lost, to
the San Francisco 49er's.

POTENTIAL THREAT-Wolverine halfback Jim Pace is snagged by a cadet tackler in the game with
Army a year ago. Michigan romped to a 26-2 win over the West Pointers. Action such as this is
typical of the colorful Army-Michigan series.
'M-Arm Series Short but Colorful

Michigan and Army have met
only six times on the gridiron, but
seldom in Wolverine football his-
tory has a series provided as much
color and excitement.
Six games they have played, and
the. mighty Black Knights have
returned home victorious on five
occasions. In fact, up; until Michi-
gan's memorable win last year,
Army had the unusual distinction
of being the only team the Wolver-
ines had faced and never defeated.
The. Cadets still hold a comfort-
able edge in the series, holding the
distinction of being one of a hand-
ful of teams to have more victories
over Michigan than it has won
from them.
Began in '45
The colorful battles began in
1945, indeed an unfortunate year
for any team to face the West-
Pointers. For the legendary "Mr.
Inside" and "Mr. Outside," Felix
(Doc) Blanchard and Glenn Davis
were Just beginning their rise to,
gridiron fame.
Together these "Gold Dust
Twins" gained 300 yds.- on the
ground, and led the Cadets to vic-
tory number one, a 28-7 verdict
over the outclassed Wolverines.

The following year this terrible
duo was back, only to be met head-{
on by a spirited bandof Wolver-
ines, led by Michigan's own
"Touchdown Twins," Bob Chap-
pius, and "Bump" Elliott, them-
selves just launching memorable
gridiron careers.
Extolled by many as the most
exciting game in the entire series,
Michigan courageously fought on
even terms with the Cadets for
most of the fray, only to wind up
on the short end of a heart-break-
ing 20-13 scoreto the more ex-
perienced Army squad.
When the teams met again, in
1949, two memorable winning
streaks were on the line. Mighty
Michigan had rolled over its last

25 opponents, while Army sported
a 14-game skein of its own.
Michigan's star tailback, Chuck
Ortmann, incurred a slight con-
cussion on the second play, and
had to leave the game. With him

went the Wolverines' once-potent
air attack, and the Cadets once
again powered their way to vic-
tory, 21-7.
The following year Yankee Sta-
dium hosted the two teams, the
only game in the series to be
played away from Ann Arbor. But
the change of scenery didn't help
Army Wins, 27-6
After trading touchdowns the
first half of a bitterly contested
battle, Army began a second-half
surge that threatenedto be a
rout, as they roared to a 27-6 win.
After a three-year lapse, the
Black Knights once again came to
Ann Arbor, and walked off with a
decisive 26-7 triumph. The Cadets
could do no wrong as they marched
effortlessly over the Wolverines,
much to the disappointment of the
pro-Michigan throng.
Five straight humiliating defeats
at the hands of the West Pointers!
Every loyal Michigan fan scowled
at the very mention of "Army."
That was before last year's game.
Army Arrived Confident'
A favored Army team arrived,
confident of picking up victory
number six. But they met up with
a fired-up, revenge-filled Michigan
team, determined to reverse the
And reverse the tables they did!
Taking command from the open-
ing kickoff, -ichigan outplayed
and out-maneuvered the Cadets,
and completely dominated the en-
tire game. Responding to the
cheers of the packed Stadiun, the
Wolverines rolled to a surprisingly
easy 26-2 win, and gained back
much of their lost prestige.
Number seven is slated for this
afternoon, and will be the last tilt
between the rivals for a few years.
While the future may be indefinite,
one thing is certain today-Michi-
gan wants, and needs this one

as long as my health is good. And
I feel mighty good ... particularly
since the World Series."
He took over the Yankees in
An independently wealthy man
with at least a score of oil wells,
Stengel indicated the Yankees
against would be gushing with top-
flight players in 1957.
"You saw the way my young
pitchers came through in the Se-
ries," he declared. "I think it'll
give them added confidence for
next season.
"We've got a young staff with
Ford, Kucks, Larsen, Grim, Tur-
ley and Sturdivant. My infield is
in good shape and we've got Hank
Bauer and Mickey Mantle for a
start in the outfield."

Calhoun Wins
TKO in Eighth
Over Sullivan
CLEVELAND OP)-Rory Calhoun
slugged his way to a technical
knockout victory over John L.
Sullivan of, England last night
by flooring Sullivan for a three-
count at the end of the seventh
round and hitting him at will in
the eighth before Referee JackieI
Davis stopped that round after1
nine seconds.
Calhoun had Sullivan in trouble
from the sixth round on, but Sul-
livan battled back gamely until a
smashing left to the stomach ear-
ly in the seventh round took most
of the fight outof him.
When the bell sounded for round
8, Calhoun caine clear across the
ring to Sullivan's corner and
landed three straight rights to the
jaw of the dazed Britisher. Ref-
eree Davis then pulled Calhoun
off. The fight had been scheduled
for 10 rounds.

The national college grid pic-
ture for today is devoid of a major
intersectional battle as most teams
return to their own areas for in
most cases one more tune up be-
fore beginning their conference
play next week.
The South and the Southwest
seem to have the corner on "big
games," outside of the Big Ten,
but several of the Pacific Coast
games could be of major impor-
tance since there are a couple of
encounters that may go a long
way in determining the PCC's rep-
resentative in the Rose Bowl.
Cal-Oregon State
The top game on the Coast
should be the California-Oregon
State fracas. The Golden Bears'
from Berkeley may prove to be
the surprise of the conference and
their upset of Pitt last week shows
that they are capable of making
it mighty uncomfortable for any
For Oregon State, beaten by
Southern Cal two weeks ago, it is
one of those "must-win" situa-
tions if the Beavers hope to keep
their title hopes alive.
Other conference games are Ore-
gon at Washington and Washing-
ton State at UCLA. Stanford, after
losing to two of the nation's top
teams, Michigan State and Ohio
State, takes a breather in playing
San Jose State.

The top game in the South is'
the Mississippi-Vanderbilt clash,
bringing together two of the top
rushing games in the country.
Kentucky, rebounding last week
after two straight defeats, takes
on a rugged Auburn team.
Tech in Top Five
Georgia Tech, ranked in the
top five in the major press asso-
ciations last week, takes on a stub-
born LSU eleven.
The headliner in the Southwest,
is the battle in Dallas' Cotton Bowl
between Oklahoma and Texas.
The Sooners, as might be expected,
are heavy favorites, but if the
Longhorns can get their thus-far
sputtering attack working smooth-
ly, they could make a game out of

Baylor, conqueror of Maryland
