The Oklahoma Sooners appar-

as well as on the playing field.
Coach Bud Wilkinson's red
shirts have regained the top spot
in the Associated Press poll after
spending an unhappy week as
runnerup to Tennessee.

was shipped to Camp Verdun in
France. He played football on the
camp team and made the All-

Re-enrolled at Michigan
Snider re-enrolled at Michigan
in September, 1954. As a second-
semester freshman he won a foot-
ball letter, (freshman could play
varsity ball at that time) and was
installed as first-string catcher
on the baseball team.
Snider's line play and defensive
signal-calling, while not being
spectacular, has been rated con-
sistently good this year.

Buckeyes Move on Ground
Ohio State's backfield has con-
tinued to rely almost exclusively
on a fast ground attack from the
T-formation this year, just as it
did in 1954 and 1955.
Halfbacks Don Clark and Jim
Roseboro and quarterback Frank
Ellwood have scored 18 of the
Buckeyes' 24 touchdowns to date
and all have averaged good yard-
age on their runs.
Although OSU's passing attack
has been meager so far this year-
averaging about six aerials thrown
and two received per game-Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan sent his Wol-
verine squad through extensive
pass defense drills yesterday after-
noon in the*rain on Ferry Field.
To Intensify Drills
Michigan's preparations for the
season finale will become more in-
tense today and t o m o r r o w,
weather permitting, before the
Wolverines leave by plane for Ohio
State Friday afternoon.
The whole squad is in good
physical shape except tackle Jerry
Marciniak who is out for the sea-
son with a chest injury.
Eleven senior lettermen will bej
in the contingent hoping to settle
the score with the Buckeyes for
the humiliation suffered at their
hands the past two years.
Captain Tom Maentz and All-
American Ron Kramer at the ends,
Mike Rotunno at center, Dick Hill
at guard, Al Sigman at tackle and
Terry Barr at right halfback are

Del Ennis, the backbon'e of the
Philadelphia Phillies attack ever
since he joined the club 11 years
ago, yesterday was traded to the
St. Louis Cardinals for outfielder
Rip Repulski and utility infielder
Bobby Morgan. '
Ennis, 31, batted .260 last year,
driving in 95 runs, hitting 26 home
runs and collecting 164 hits. Re-
pulski, 28, hit .277, batted home
55 runs, smacked 11 homers and
totaled 104 hits.
General Manager Roy HameyI
made the deal on the premise he
was getting a younger, faster and
better defensive outfielder for the
homebred Ennis, greatest home
run hitter in the history of the
club. Ennis hit 259 homers during
his career with the Phillies.
Hamey said the decisive factor
in the trade was the difference ofI

McHan Pleads for Chance
CHICAGO (RP)-Quarterback La-
Mar McHan yesterday pleaded for
another chance with the Chicago
Cardinals after the club indefinite-
ly suspended him for "insubordi-
nation" and fined him $3,000-
largest assessment in National
Football League history.
The Cardinals said they plaster-
ed the former University of Ar-
kansas star with the fine after he
told his teammates that he "didn't
feel like playing today" at the
outset of the game with the Steel-
ers in Pittsburgh Sunday.
Indian Wins in Cricket Here
The Indian eleven defeated the
Pakistan eleven, 86-37, in a cricket
match played in Ferry Field area
India's Siddharth Banker and
Navin Kothary were chiefly re-
sponsible for their team's 86-run
score, each of them accounting for
31 and 27 runs respectively.
The fast and accurate bowling
of Banker and teammate Bagi
Phalkiwala played havoc among
the Pakistani batsmen. Pakistan's
Anwar Choudkry saved his team
from a total defeat by adding 10
runs to his team's score.
