Whitewash PIT in I-M 'B Football Final

Sport Shorts

iy The Associated Press
Oklahoma remained the No. 1
,ollege football team in the land
Tuesday, and with four games re-
maining on the Sooners' schedule
it doesn't seem possible any oth-
er club can stop them from be-
coming national champions again.
The seventh weekly poll of The
Associated Press showed Oklaho-
ma receiving 116 first-place bal-
lots out of a total of 172, although
the Sooners were forced to come
from behind last Saturday to beat
Colorado 27-19.
Michigan was rated 10th.

Fast Action
GIFU, Japan - The touring
Brooklyn Dodgers learned how to
evacuate a railroad coach in one
minute - through the windows.
The team - 30 strong includ-
ing officials - rolled into Gifu
yesterday aboard the "Tsubame
Swallow," Japan's finest express
train which doesn't changerits
schedule for anyone.
The train stops in Gifu for ex-
actly one minute.
The Dodgers threw open the
coach windows, grabbed their
heavy duffel bags and bailed out
when the train stopped. In a cloud.
of baggage, the coach was emp-
tied in less than one minute.

Irish Weakened
SOUTH BEND, Ind. - Notre
Dame's star quarterback, Paul
Hornung, and its defensive leader,
center Ed Sullivan, were on the
injury list yesterday as the Irish
prepared for Saturday's game
with Pittsburgh.
Hornung is expected to play
against Pittsburgh while Sullivan,
who suffered a sprained back
last Saturday against Navy, is a
doubtful starter.
Athletes Delayed
LOS ANGELES - A charter
flight taking American athletes
and officials to the Olympic
Games in Australia had to turn
back yesterday shortly after tak-
ing off.
Pan American Airlines said the
landing gear of the big DC7C
couldn't be raised due to a minor
malfunction. The plane returned
to International Airport.
After the aircraft was checked
over the 64 athletes and officials
were airborne again 2 hours and
54 minutes later.
Aboard were members of the
men's and women's track and field
teams and the women's gymnastic
team, accompanied by coaches and

Set Defense
In Practice
While a constant drizzle fell, the
Wolverines worked overtime in yes-
terday's practice.
The extra-long session found
the team working on a defense
which they hope will be able to
stop the powerful offense of Illi-
nois, Saturday's opponents.
Although the defensive drills
stressed running, they did not
overlook the chance that the Illini
might spring a surprise air attack.
A bright spot in the practice was
the return of halfback Terry Barr
to action.
Two other Wolverines, tackle
Willie Smith and guard Jerry Mar-
ciniak also returned to action.

Yesterday, at rain soaked Ferry
Field, Phi Delta Theta beat Tau
Kappa Epsilon, 21-0, for the I-M
Social Fraternity "B" Champion-
The turning points of the game
were four pass interceptions by
the Phi Delts. Two of them led to
touchdowns. Early in the first half
after an interception by Punky
Boylan, the PDTs scored on a pass
from Jack Hogan to Pete Patter-
Late in the first half Mike Jack-
son pilfered a TKE pass and ran
it back for a tally. The extra point
was a pass from Hogan to Bernie
The third marker came early in
the second half on a long pass
from Hogan to Dick Little. Hogan
threw to Jim Asbeck for the extra
point. The spirit of the game was
high as one player from each team
was forced to retire because of un-
sportsmanlike conduct.
Phi Alpha Kappa and Nu Sigma

F r a t e r n i t y semi-final playoff
Phi Alpha Kappa whipped Law
Club, 13-0. The first half was
strictly defensive and it wasn't
until the second half that PAK

Grid Picks Contestants
May Use Weird Methods

No matter which of the prevail-
ing methods of choosing winners
you might adhere to, you too can
come out on top in Grid Picks!
One type found to be quite pop-
ular among the armchair-quarter-
backs is that known as the 'coin-
flipping" method, guaranteeing at,
least a .500 record. Also rating,
highly with many pseudo-experts
is blindfolding themselves, then
letting their straying fingers pre-
dict the outcome of the games.
Then there are the loyal week-
by-week pigskin followers. They
scientifically plot the final results,
using such information as past'
records, home team, physical con-
dition of the. team etc.
To enter this week's contest,
send your selections to Grid Picks,
Student Publications Building, 420-
Maynard St., Ann Arbor. Be surer
and include your name, address,
and telephone number.
Also you must pick the score of
the Michigan-Illinois game, as
these predictions will be the de-
ciding factor in case of multiple.
All entries must be received at
the Daily by Friday noon.

(This is the first in a series of
four articles about track and field
events in the 1956 Olympic Games.
This article discusses the dash
If previous records and consis-
tently better times mean any-
thing, as they certainly do in track
events, the United States should
easily dominate the track and
field competition in the 1956
Olympic Games coming up late
this month.
United States runners have the
best recorded times in all of the
races from the 100 meters up to
the 800 meters, including the
hurdles competition, and although
weak in the longer distances,
should be able to overcome that
disadvantage with six more first
places in the field events.
American domination is strong-
est in the shortest races. The 100
meters and 200 meters dashes
could easily turn into clean sweeps
for the United States, which
boasts swift Bobby Morrow, of

Abilene Christian College, a cinch
for first in both races.
He is backed up by Ira Murchi-
son, who holds an unofficial
world's record of :10.1 in the 100
meter, but isn't as consistent as
Morrow, and Thane Baker who
should place in both races.
Baker and Murchison both run
for the Army.
Andy Stanfield will replace
Murchison in the 200 meters, and
the United States is picked to
sweep both races unless an upset
of major proportions should occur.
If Morrow can win both dashes,
as he is expected to, it will be the
first time in Olympic history since
the fabulous Jesse Owens accom-
plished the feat back in 1936.
The United States is looking for
1-2 finishes in both the 400 and
800 meter races to add to their
domination of the short distance
events. Lou Jones of the Army is
way ahead of everyone else in the
400, holding the world record at

The next best time recorded so
far belongs to another American,
Jim Lea of the Air Force, who
should finish second.
In the 800 meters, the most
grueling of the middle-distance
races, Americans again figure
high. Arnie Sowell of Pittsburgh
and Tom Courtney, the ex-Ford-
ham star now in the army, should
stage a terrific race, presumably
unbothered by anyone else.
Rogar Moens of Belgium, the
world record holder at 1:45.7 has
been forced to withdraw from the
race because of a groin injury,'
leaving the main foreign compe-
tition in the form of Brian Hew-
son of Britain and Dan Waern of
