Barr s Ankle

A-DayTo Forget
AN UNEASY atmosphere hung over Ferry Field yesterday aft-
Thoughts couldn't help but turn back to Saturday and "Minne-
sota, 1956," the homecoming game that rocked Michigan on its
football heels., A look to the future and Iowa away this Saturday is
also dampened with the news that halfback Terry Barr's ankle in-
jury is more serious than first suspected.
At present the Wolverine wingback must be put on the very
doubtful list to play at all in Iowa
City. His ankle, twisted when he
scored Michigan's lone touchdown
Saturday, has not responded com-
pletely to treatment, and it is still
giving him considerable pain.
It will be a good test for the
Wolverines this week to see if they
can snap back after a completely
disheartening defeat. There seems
to be no doubt that unbeaten Iowa
is going to be tough. The Hawk-
eyes, by the record, have not been
overly impressive with wins over
Indiana (27-0), Oregon State (14-
13), Wisconsin (13-7), Hawaii
(34-0), and Purdue (21-20).
But they have been gaining mo-
-TCmentum, and Coach Bennie Oos-
accurate arm terbaan and staff expect Iowa to
be more-than-ready before a sell-
out homecoming crowd of nearly 60,000.
Add to this that Michigan has'not been known as a consistent
winning team away from the Michigan Statium to the discouraging1
effects of the Minnesota game that may still be present, and you have
the feeling that Michigan has a major job ahead.
What happened against the Gophers? The best general an-
swerfor the letdown probably comes in one word - psychology.
Minnesota used a little of it mixed with a pretty effective offense
and a seemingly greater desire to win.

Michigan Had Chances,...
? MICHIGAN had its chances and just missed getting a two-touch-
down lead by the end of the first half. The line gaveway in the
third and fourth quarters. The lack of depth began to show as Minne-
sota applied its first-time-used pressure. In the style of Oklahoma,
quarterback Bobby Cox raced his offense through one play after,
another. Michigan was not ready for it.
Cox actually called most of his plays while at the line of scrim-
mage. The quick huddle would give the hike number or play direc-
tion. After he had looked over the shifting Michigan defense, he
would pick one of three or four standard running plays. A signal of
"20-20", for example, might mean a quarterback keep over center
with the helpful openings of the split T formation.
Oosterbaan called "mental preparedness" the key to stopping
such a high-paced attack. Michigan with an injury-riddled line was
a split second slower (the films show it) than the "fired up" Gopher
As a contrast to last season, Michigan has been able to keep the
edge in each game in statistics. It is with this primarily in mind,
that the explosive offense still gives room for optimism in the last
four games.
The Wolverines lead in first downs 90-62, rushing yardage 1066-
902, and passing yardage 593,375. Individual performances are high-
lighted by Barr's 6.1 rushing average, Ron Kramer's 12 passes caught
for 246 yards, Bob Ptacek's 10 of 13 pass completions, and John Herrn-
stein's six touchdowns.

CHICAGO (P)--A special six-
man committee labored yesterday
on a new recruiting and subsidiz-
ing Big Ten athletic code.
It will take at least two days toE
draw up and no announcement will
be made until late today.
The new code is in answer to
a recent report on Big Ten ath-
T ime Change
Time for the Monday Quar-
terback films at theMichigan
Union of each Saturday's game
has been changed from 8 to 8:30
letics which revealed abuses and
called for a change to curb them
or leave the conference open to
all kinds of charges and criticisms.

Lions Win Fifth Consecutive Game

The main part of the new set
of rules ties all aid to athletes to
proven need calculated by formula.
The plan will be presented to the
Conference at its winter meetings
in December and will become law
if it receives unanimous approval.
Only one vote against it, how-
ever, would be enough to force'
submission to all Western Confer-
ence faculty groups for a vote.
There are indications that there
will be some opposition. This will
be mainly from alumni, particu-
larly those of the smaller and less
powerful Big Ten universities who
think ironclad restrictions would
be an even larger disadvantage
than they are now.
Athletic directors and coaches
for the most part are expected to
back the new. plan.
Members of the special com-
mittee working on the code are
faculty representatives Dean V. C.
Freeman of Purdue, Prof. George
H. Young of Wisconsin and Prof.
Robert F. Ray of Iowa; and ath-
letic directors H. O. "Fritz" Crisler

Five weeks are gone in the Na-
tional Football League and each
division finds itself with a two-
team race.
In the Western Division the De-
troit Lions maintained their fired-
up pace by winning their fifth
straight game of the season, 16-7,
against the Los Angeles Rams.
The Lions' rugged defense,
coupled with Bobby Layne's kick-
ing were dominant in figuring to-
ward the Lion's victory. The de-
fensive team was responsible for
stopping the Rams' offensive push
twice within the 10-yard line.
The Chicago Bears remained hot
on the trail of the Lions by drop-
ping the San Francisco 49ers, 38-
21, in he other game out on the
Pacific Coast.
Fullback Rick Casares scored
four touchdowns in leading the
Bears to their fourth win this
year. They have one loss. The com-
bination of Ed Brown to Harlan
Hill plus Casares' phenomenal run-


ning was just too much for San
Francisco. George Blanda con-
tributed a field goal and five point
to the Bear cause.
Baltimore Defeats Green Bay
Baltimore forced Green Bay into
a third place tie by beating them,
28-21. Lenny Moore, last year's
star from Penn State, electrified
the crowd twice with runs of 72
and 79 yards respectively. Tobin
Rote's passing provided all of
Green Bay's scoring..
Over in the Eastern Division, the
race for the championship is even
closer. There we find a tie for first
place as a result of Sunday's
action. 4
The Washington Redskins acted
the role of spoilers as they beat
the previously undefeated Chicago
Cardinals, 17-14. This defeat, com-
bined with a New York Giant win,
placed these two teams in the first
place tie.
Washington trailed at half time,
14-3, but roared back with two
touchdowns to give them the win-

ning advantage. Al Dorow, former-
ly of Michigan State, passed for
both of the Redskins' scores.
One-Sided Victory
Meanwhile, the New York
Giants, playing in Yankee Sta-
dium, won a one-sided victory over
the Philadelphia Eagles, 20-3. The
Giants impregnable defensive wall
held the Eagles to a mere 59 yards
Alex Webster and Frank Gifford
scored for the Giants, and Ben
Agajanian added two field goals
for the margin of victory.
In the other game of the East-
ern Division, Pittsburgh defeated
the hapless Cleveland Browns, 38-
21. It was the Browns' fourth de-
feat in five games.

A fiery Turkish eleven defeated"
a rough China team, 1-0, in a re-
played match of the International
Students Soccer League last Sun-
day afternoon at Wines Field.
After playing one tie game,
Turkey met China once again and
gained a victory. After a scoreless
first half, Captain Mustafa Bozma
broke the ice by making the lone
score for Turkey.
The Chinese team played a
rough and tumble game and gave
the Turkish squad a good fight,
displaying excellentdefense.
In the other match of the after-
non, Venezuela tied Latvia, 4-4, in
a hard-fought battle.
Alvara Estrella and Armando
Vargas contributed two points
apiece to the Venezuela score.
Arthur Linde scored twice for the
Latvia eleven and two of his
teammates tallied one point each.
