U.S. Margin.
In Olympics
By The Associated Press
States, its cascade of gold medals
dwindling to a trickle, sends two
teen-age swimming stars, Carin
Cone and Shelley Mann, out after
possible championships today to;
stem a late points rush by Russia
in the fading stages of the Olym-
pic games.
Miss Cone, 16-year-old high
school whiz from Ridgewood, N.J.,
is conceded a good chance in the
100 meter backstroke finals.
Versatile Miss Mann, 19, of Ar-
lington, Va., is a stout favorite
in the 100 meter butterfly after
leading the qualifying trials in the
record-shattering time of 1:11.4.
Russians Closing Gap
In other events, Russia can be
expected to fatten its point total
and push- closer to America in
the unofficial race for team hon-
ors. Soviet athletes continue to
mop up in men's and women's
gymnastics and' to add titles in
shooting and wrestling.
With three more days of com-
petition remaining, the U.S. holds
only a slight lead over the Rus-

Russia 4521/2 in the American style
McCormick Wins for U.S.
Magnificent. Pat Keller McCor-
mick, queen of the world's diving
boards, brought America anotherl
gold medal last night by winning
the springboard competition for
women, a title she won at Hel-
sinki four years ago along with the
platform crown.

NOT THIS TIME-Michigan goalie Lorne Howes (1) blocks a

Lions Gain Division Lead
By Overpowering Bears

The Detroit Lions swept back
into first place in the Western
Division of the National Football
League with an explosion of touch-
downs Sunday as they trounced
the Chicago Bears, 42-10.
Until Sunday's game, the Bears
had averaged 33 points per game
and were looked upon as the un-
stoppable offense because of their
two top flight quarterbacks, three
great ends, and four flashy backs.
Lions Unimpressed
Apparently the Lions weren't
impressed with the greatly ac-
claimed Bear squad, because they
held the so-called "monsters of
the Midway" to 114 yards by
rushing and 70 yards through the
air, while they accumulated 214
yards on the ground and 267 yds
via the air.
At no time did the Lions have
to resort to a punt throughout a
game that was highlighted by the
spirited Detroit fans yelling: "We
want Bear meat"-and they got it!
The Eastern Division also boast-
ed an important game, as the New
York Giants continued 'to roll, by
defeating the Washington Red-
skins, 28-14.
Gifford Busy
Giant halfback Frank Gifford
was the busy man on the field as
he ran for two touchdowns, caught
a pass for the third, and fired an
aerial for the fourth.
The former USC All-American
ran for 108 yards and caught six
passes for 53 yards in the victory
which just about clinched the
divisional title for the New York-

In other games Cleveland edged
Philadelphia, 17-14, as Lou Groza
booted a field goal with only 29
seconds remaining in the game.
San Francisco Wins
San Francisco end Billy Wilson
snagged two touchdown aerials
as the Forty-Niners beat the Bal-
timore Colts.
Green Bay quarterback Tobin
Rote directed the Packers to their
second upset victory in two games
Cardinals 24-21. He ran for all
as they rallied to beat the Chicago
three Green Ray touchdowns.
Veteran end Elbie Nickel caught
two touchdown passes from quar-
terback Jack Scarbath, who was
calling his first game, to send the
Pittsburgh Steelers to a 30-13 win
over the Los Angeles Rams.
Syracuse 97, Fort Wayne 96
Boston 108, St. Louis 107
New York 101, Minneapolis 88

Coliseum at 5:15 p.m. the day of
the game.
Tickets Available Friday
The lone exception to the rule
is this weekend, due to the odd
Saturday-Monday series with Tor-
onto. Tickets for these games will
be available on Friday, a day ear-
lier than usual, as well as Satur-
Student tickets will sell for six-
ty cents and the student must
show his I-D card. A married stu-
dent who wishes to buy a ticket
for his spouse must show his blue
spouse card.
Meanwhile, Coach Vic Heyli-
ger's Wolverine sextet is slowly
rounding into shape. Beset by sev-
eral minor injuries in the last few
weeks, the team is now, on the
whole, healthy and will be at full
strength for this weekend's games.
Crucial Western Tour
Michigan plays four league
games - good for eight points -
during five days, Dec. 18-22, when
they tour the west for a crucial
two game series with both Color-
ado College and Denver.
The WIHL rule on points
awarded for a win is as follows:
If teams play each other twice
during the season two points are
awarded to the winner of each
game. If teams meet four times,
the winners get a single point per
Thus' these two point games
loom as big ones on Michigan's
schedule-musts. In fact, in the
past, the Wolverines haven't fared
well at all during the regular sea-
son in the west.
Two years ago, in their last ap-
pearance in Colorado in WIHL

four and as a result, were extreme-
ly hard pressed to make the play-

May Retire
Number 8'7
The informal recommendation
by football Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan Monday night that Ron Kra-
mer's number (87) be retired
should mean the fourth such ges-
ture in Michigan football history.
Oosterbaan made his suggestion
at the 1956 Football Bust dinner
in Detroit.
Already retired are the jerseys
worn by Oosterbaan himself (47),
Tom Harmon (98), and the three
Wistert brothers -- Francis, Al-
bert, and Alvin (11).
The only formality remaining is
acceptance by the Board in Con-
trol of Intercollegiate . Athletics,
which is expected to meet again
after the Christmas vacation.
