STATE STREET Unless Reforms Are Made



Too Much Blue for Ted'
r1 E DRESSING ROOM wasn't too crowded now. A few of the
players were still dressing. The managers were finishing their job.
Nobody was looking too happy. Then we saw the man we were looking
for. We didn't have to walk over to him. He came to us.
"I suppose you fellows want to see me," he said. He was smiling,
but it wasn't the kind of smile that comes easily. His team had just
been humiliated, and Earl "Red" Blaik's teams have seldom been
humiliated. But, besides coaching a team, Blaik had another job
awaiting him; he had to face the reporters after it was all over.'
Sometimes it's rough. This time it was.
We formed a semi-circle around Army's coach. He didn't waste
any time, speaking freely, logically, coherently. You can learn an
awful lot about football by listening to a coach of Blaik's stature.
"Michigan has a very fine football
team," he admitted. "Better than
last year. We were expecting quite
a game, and we sure got one."
Did he expect to lose by so big
a score? "Expect to lose by that ?
much?" he repeated. "No, we didn t
expect to lose-at all. To be quite
frank, I had great hopes of win-
ping this game. I knew that Mich-
igan would be tough, but I honestly
a thought we had a good chance.
We don't know what happened
and won't find out until we study
the movies. As for my immediate
post-game reaction, I'm stunned.
Any coach would be stunned if
his- team made eight fumbles, los-
ing the ball after six of them. Any
coach would be stunned if his team :
was losing by 48 points going into
the Afinal quarter. .I have seen
Arm ay an gamsv. I have ...
seen them at their best (Blanchard
and Davis) and at their worst
(right after the cribbing scandal), COACH BLAIK
but, Saturday's performance was ... 'stunned'
Blaik knew 'be had lost to a better team, but said that Army's
excessive fumbling did not result from bruising tackling by Michigan.
We had to agree with him on this point. The Cadets often fumbled
before they were hit. "I'm sure it has something to do with the
mechanics of exchange," he said, "but we'll know for sure after
seeing the movies."
Good Day for the Scrubs ..
Let's not take anything away from the Wolverines. They played
superb football, and could have run the score into the sixties if they
had wished. It was a wonderful game for almost everyone on the
Michigan bench. Most of the scrubs saw action. The stars were at
their peaks. And-here's an interesting note-the casualty list isn't
long at all.
Jim Dickey and Jack Lousma incurred ankle injuries against the
Cadets, and probably won't play against. Northwestern this week. On
the brighter side, Ron Kramer and Terry Barr, although not com-
pletely recovered from their injuries, did not aggravate their bruises
Let's throw in this opinion for comment. Kick it around, but
please don't mutilate it. Remember Michigan State's team last year?
They lost to Michigan by one touchdown early in the season... and
were a menace after that.
Michigan might very well copy the Spartans of '55 this year.

Moore Plan'
Title Fight
CHICAGO (A)-Floyd Patterson
and Archie Moore have agreed to
meet in a ,15-round heavyweight
title fight in Chicago Stadium Fri-
day, Nov. 30, the International
Boxing Club announced yesterday.
The contract signing will be in
Chicago next week and terms will
be announced at that time, the
IBC said.
The ageless Moore was knocked
out in the 11th round of his
heavyweight title attempt by
champion Rocky Marciano, now
retired, in September of last year.
Patterson hasn't fought since
last June 8 when he defeated Hur-
ricane Jackson in 12 rounds. He
fractured a hand in that fight.

Cooley, Scott,_Williams Win I-M Tilts

Cooley House, an also-ran
among residence hall football
teams last year, moved a step clos-
er to a first-place intramural
playoff berth by romping over
Michigan House, 25-0, for its third
straight victory.
Ten Games Played
A full slate of ten games were
played yesterday in the. Indian-
summer heat that blanketed South
Ferry Field. Seven of the contests
were residence halls class "A" and
three were social fraternity "B".
Tailba fk Bruce Conybear led
Cooley to victory as he fired three
touchdown passes - one each to
Ed Gordon, Kim Greene and Sid
Levine. Gordon scored the last
touchdown by moving 20 yds. with
a pitchout from Greene.
Scott spotted Adams an early
touchdown and then roared back
with two of its own to win a hard

fought 13-6 victory. Both the Scott
markers followed the same route
as Jack Mogk hit Les Janoff twice
in the Adams end zone with well-
placed heaves.

Val Milholland streaked the
length of the field with an inter-
cepted pass in the fading moments
of play to give Greene a 12-6 win
over Reeves House.

Hot tempers seemed to be the
byword as Gomberg House rolled
to its second straight win by crush-
ing Huber, 27-7. The game was a
bitterly-fought contest from the
opening whistle and several rough-
ness penalties were called.
In other residence hall games,
Hinsdale defeated Anderson, 19-
