Gomberg, Phi
Pro Fraternity Crown
Won by Nu Sigma Nu



I-M 'Aootball Titles


Gomberg defeated Williams,
13-7, in the very colorful, highly
disputed residence hall first place
final playoff game last night at
Wines Field.
Up to the last minute of play
Williams held a narrow 7-6 lead.
Then,' after Williams' last threat
had stalled on Gomberg's 32, the
Big Red marched down the field
to score the deciding touchdown
as the final gun sounded.
Bruce Fox, Gomberg's captain
and quarterback, started the drive
for the TD by running from his
32 to Williams' 22. Fox tossed for
a first down to Bill Earl on the 10,
and then hit Bill Wheat in the
n end zone. Fox went around end for
the extra point.
Wililams went ahead in the third
quarter on a succession of passes
from Ron Jernigan to Ron Deem,
captain. The combination also
clicked for the extra point.
Williams, completely dominat-
ing play in the second half until
Gomberg's TD march, protested


the game because they claim
Wheat was out of the end zone
when he caught the ball.
Phi Gamma Delta upset and
completely outplayed Sigma Al-
pha Epsilon in the first place "A"
final playoff game. SAE simply
could not get any attack rolling
against the sturdy, Phi Gam de-
fense. The Phi Gams literally ran
the ball over the field in the first
half, but settled down in the sec-
Of the six times that SAE had
the ball, four times Phi Gam in-
tercepted and twice SAE punted.
Only once did SAE enter Fiji terri-
Phi Gam scored first in the first
quarter after intercepting a SAE
pass on their own 18. Jack Wheel-
er then connected with Bill Stein-
meyer to the 30. On the next play
Wheeler caught an aerial and ran
to the SAE 30. Wheeler passed to
Gene Honeyman for the tally and
the extra point as the first quar-
ter ended.
On the first play after the kick-
off, Wheeler intercepted on his
own 35, and on the succeeding
play, hit Honeyman for the sec-
ond tally. The extra point was
missed and the score remained,
In a clean, hard-played game,
Nu Sigma Nu repeated its per-
formance of last year and won the
professional fraternity "A" cham-
pionship by beating Phi Alpha
Kappa, 29-6.
Phi Alpha Kappa drew first
blood on a pass from Roger Post-
mus to Don Piersma. Piersma lat-
eralled to Ron Bas who ran all
the way for the tally.
The rest of the game was com-
pletely Nu Sig. Fran Gutman
heaved for all four TD's, pasted
fo rall extra point attempts, and
rushed hard to force the Phi Al-
pha Kappa safety.
In the other first place playoff
game, the Seldom Seen Kids beat
the Evans Scholars, 19-6, in what
proved to be a very rough, penal-
ty-ridden contest. Jack Watson,
captain of the 'Kids, passed for
all the TD's and extra point at-
tempts. The Scholars got their
tally on apass from Tony Drabik

LONG GAINER-Jim Pace, junior left halfback, breaks loose and
sprints 30 yards down the sidelines in last year's Indiana game.
Pace, who had a great day against Illinois last week, hopes to
repeat his performance against the Hoosiers.
Sigma Chi Captures A'
Second Place Playoffs

Show Spirit;
Pass well
Practicing under sunny skies and
in cool weather, the Michigan Wol-
verines kept warm by preparing
for Indiana yesterday at Ferry
Quite evident was the spirit dis-
played by everyone, including head
coach Bennie Oosterbaan.
Barr Runs Well
Attending practice and showing
little sign of last Saturday's re-
curring injury was Terry Barr.
Although not 100 per cent effi-
cient, Barr ran well out of his
right halfback slot.
Much of the practice session
went into preparing a defense
against the Hoosiers. The first
and second team lines could be
seen as they sharpened up their
blocking assignments under the
tutelage of coaches Jack Blott and
Don Holloway.
Still missing from practice, due
to the injury he sustained two
weeks ago, was lineman Gerry
Marciniak. In the latter part of
practice the offensive units went
through their repertoire of plays.
with Jim Pace running as hard and
as well as he exhibited in cast
Saturday's game.
Passes Click
The passing patterns were click-
ing consistently. Quarterbacks Jim
Van Pelt and Jim Maddock, along
with tailbacks Bob Ptacek and
Pace were hitting receivers accur-
ately, especially Ron Kramer and
Tom Maentz.
The Michigan passing attack, led
by Ptacek, has been much sharper
this year than it was a year ago.,


For the second straight week,
the Daily Sports Staff took a les-
son in football forecasting from its
faculty guest.
Dean of Men, Walter B. Rea,
topped all staff members in last
week's Grid Picks contest by post-
ing a fine 15-5 record.
On the strength of this and the
sparkling 17-3 record of Assistant
to the Dean Bill Gross, the pre-
vious week, the Guest Staff is now
only one "pick" from the top.
This week's prize will be two free
tickets to either "Showdown at
Abilene" at the Michigan theater
or "Back from Eternity" at the

ond-place championship by edging
Tau Delta Phi, 7-6, under the
lights at Wines Field last night.
Ken Tippery passed to Carl
Nordberg for the Sigma Chi touch-
down and then added the extra

scoring. Tau Delt scored late in
th game on Ron Charfoos' TD pass
to Aaron Podhurst, but could not
tally the tying point.
Sigma Chi "B" Team Wins
Sigma Chi's "B" team qualified
for a berth in the first-place fi-
nals, with a 14-7 victory over Chi

to face each other for the second-
place championship by taking

ma Phi Epsilon topped SAE, 1-0

Four More
DETROIT T')- The National
Collegiate Athletic Assn. Council
last night placed four major
schools on probation, banning
three of them from participating in
all NCAA-sponsored and cooperat-
ing events for periods ranging
from nine months to four years.
The four schools are North Caro-
lina State College, Ohio State Uni-
versity, the University of Southern
California and the University of
At the same time, the council
refused to lift probations against
the University of Miami, Fla. and
Texas A&M.
The action rules out any possi-
bility that football teams from
these schools will be able to par-
ticipate in post-season bowl games.


Big Ten Race Undecided

Last Saturday's Big Ten results
did little to clear up the Rose Bowl
The Big Ten representative to
Pasadena January 1 will probably
not be decided until the last games
of the season.
Ohio State, ineligible for Rose
Bowl play this year because of Big
Ten disciplinary action, easily
downed Indiana, 35-14, to remain
undefeated in conference play.
A big favorite for the Big Ten
championship, the Buckeyes are
scheduled to meet Iowa and Michi-
gan on the next two Saturdays.
Both of these teams have Bowl
hopes and a victory by either over
the Buckeyes is a prerequisite for
the trip west.
Iowa scored a,7-0 victory over
previously unbeaten, once tied
The Golden Gophers are also
aspiring for a Rose Bowl bid, but
must get by powerful Michigan
State next Saturday.
Michigan State barely managed
to beat Purdue, 12-9. Playing with-
out their star halfback, Clarence
Peaks, the Spartans had trouble
through the entire game. Michi-
gan State is also ineligible for
Rose Bowl competition because it
played last year.
At present the Spartans have a
4-1 record with only one Confer-
ence game left.
In a game between two of the

apparently weak sisters of the con-
ference, Northwestern downed
Wisconsin, ,17-7. The game was
marked by a great deal of fumbles
on both sides, with Northwestern
