The Fighting Irish of Notre
Dame are once again assuming
their role of astern football
leaders.
Coming back from a. drastic
2-10 season last year, the worst in
the history of the fine institution,
the Irish coached by Terry Bren-
nan have now won three straight.
Their most impressive and most
important victory= occurred this

past weekend when they upended
the strong Army contingent from
West Point. Victory did not come
easy however. It wasn't until the
final minutes of the game when
end Monte Stickles kicked a 29-
yd. field goal to beat the West
Pointers, 23-21.
Al Ecuyer-was, outstanding for
his spirited line play all after-
noon.
Mighty Oklahoma, the kingpin
of college football, was noticeably
weakened by the flu when it ran
into a powerful Texas team. It
was not until the third quarter
that the Sooners were able to
wrap up their 43rd straight vic-
tory.
Kicking Helps
Walter Fondren, a kicking and
passing demon for Texas, gave
the Sooners all sorts of trouble.
He continually kicked the Texas
team out of trouble all afternoon.
A second half comeback by
Navy once again threw the Mid-
dies .into the Eastern leadership
spotlight. After being upset by

North Carolina last Saturday, the
Middies showed no sign of doing
any better until halfback Ned
Oldham steadied the team in the
second half.,
Unbeaten Auburn had a tough
time in defeating Kentucky, 6-0:
The only score came in the third
period when Billy Atkins, driving
fullback for the ninth-ranked
Tigers, slammed across from the,
six.
Once again Purdue fell into the
familiar pattern of fumbles and
bad breaks, as it was beaten by
"dark horse" Wisconsin, 23-14.
Danny Lewis ran 80 yards and
Sidney Williams 73 for Wisconsin
touchdowns.
Fourth-ranked Minnesota once
again came up with another star
in sophomore halfback Bill Mar-
tin. Martin scored two of the six
Gopher touchdowns.
The Gophers wore down the
outmanned Northwestern team
with their platoon tactics as they
notched their third consecutive
Randy Duncan.

Praise Rote
In Lion Win
By PAUL BORMAN
Special to The Daily
DETROIT - There are always
two sides to a story and the same
was true of the locker-room com-
ments about Sunday's Ram-Lion
football game.
The results of the game showed
Detroit the victor, 10-7.
Ten seconds before the final
gun was fired, Ram rookie Paige
Cothren missed a 26-yd. field goal.
Cothren then took off his helmet,
threw it to the ground, and began
to weep.
In the dressing room after the
game, the visitors were very bit-
ter about losing.
Degrades Lions
Defensive stalwart, Frank Ful-
ler, a four year veteran at tackle
said: 'sThe Lions' offensive line
play 'stunk' ". He then went on
to say, "If it wasn't for the block-
ing of fullback John Henry John-
son, Detroit wouldn't have Yone
anything."
Art Hauser, who starred at the,
other defensive tackle slot chimed
in agreement on Fuller's opinion
of the Detroit line play..
In the Detroit Lions' dressing
room, there was 'n air of relief.
Head Coach George Wilson said:
"I'm glad to get that game out Of
the way." He added, "We were
very fortunate to get by the Rams.
They have a very good team."
Both sides had high praise for
Detroit's quarterback, Tobin Rote.
Wilson said, "Rote played a fine
game as did Layne." The two op-
posing linemen who went after
both men said that Rote played a
very good game and that his run-
ning gave them a lot of trouble.
They added that Rote is like a
halfback in the backfield whereas
they said that they never have
any fear of Bobby Layne as a
runner.1

Room for Everyone
No matter where your interest in sports may lie, the Michiga
Intramural Sports Program is set up to please you.
Perhaps you aren't interested in the common team sports such a
football, basketball, and baseball, and the other contests that compris
the schedules of the different'I-M leagues.
Even if you doh't care to participate for your residence hal
fraternity or for an independent team-there is still room for you i
the I-M program.
During the school year there is A total of 30 All-Campus Tourns
ments which are held ex4ressly for those who are interested in ind
vidual competition.
Many of these sports are 'quite specialized, and draw upon onl
those who excel. However, many others attract a large group ever
year.
The first tournament of the year, "21," is already underway, an
the I-M office has been swamped with entries. "21," for those nor
basketball players, is a variation of the court game principally fo
individual competition.
Entries to this tournament are now closed, and the elimination c
participants has begun. Howard Poppe, the I-M .man in chafge of tk
All-Campus Tburnament program states that a winner should b
declared by the end of October. Fred Karr, one of the I-M officials, we
last year's champion.
Four tournaments that are always popular here at Michigan, an
which find tough competition each year are the singles and double
action in both paddleball and handball.
The same group of players dominated both tournaments last yea
Al Lifsbay was the singles champion in handball and shared ti
doubles championship in both sports.
Harry Stuhldreher was Lifshay's partner in handball-, while Jac
Watson shared the doubles title in paddleball. Fran LeMire was ti
All-Campus paddleball champion.
Individual Battles,
LeMire was also cited as the outstanding athlete in the I-M syste'
last year and the year before. This honor is given to the man wl
enters andexcels in the most sports throughdut the year. Both teat
bSorts and All-Campus tournaments count in his favor.
LeMire is back again this year, competing for Lambda Chi Alpi
in the social fraterdnity league, and will be bidding for his thir
straight title.
Probably his toughest competition will come from Watson, wI
won the honor three years ago, but bowed to LeMire the past tv
season. Watson is the leader of the lamed Seldom Seen Kids of'i
independent league.
One of the tournaments that commands the greatest number c
entries is the Foul Throwing contest held each spring. Last year ti
I-M Building was lined with contestants for an entire week. TI
scores for many of the contestants are counted for both their respectiv
teams and for individual competition. The individual title was share
by Tom Wight, R. Hughes, and G. Thrailkill who es ch netted I
out of 100 possible shots.
Here is a list of the 30 tournaments, and the entry dates for eacl
Why not try you skill at some of these sports?

Although most of these sports are individual, or at' the most, two-
men events, there Fare some team activities. Among these are ice
hockey, baseball nd. lacrosse. They appear under the All-Campus
Tournament category because they are not part ot the regular I-Md
league competition.
Personal Improvement..
The fact that a prospective athlete feels tpat he doesn't excel
at any of these sports shouldn't keep him out of the competition. Ther
is room for anyone and everyone in the huge Michigan Intramura
system.
Earl Riskey, head of the I-M department, emphasizes the fact
that there is an opportunity for any male student in his program.
One part of this program that might appeal to those who ae
interested 'in becoming proficient at some sport is a series of instruc
tional sessions that will be sponsored by the department.
The instruction will be given by students who themselves exce
in some sport, and who are willing to spend an hour or so e'ach
week to pass on their skill to others. Anyone interested in this progran
should get in contact with the I-M office.
Riskey also states that there will be many athletic clubs formed
this year for those who have an interest in some particular sport anc
who wish to further this interest. Groups centered around archery
weight lifting, boxing and fencing, are presently being considererd
Further chances for athletic participation are being made avail
able with the increased facilities at North Campus this year. The
program there is under the direction of Stuhldrether, who, by the
way, is the son of the famous member of Notre Dame's "Four Horse
men" backflield.
Riskey and Poppe also emphasize the department's Co-Recrea
tional program that began last Friday. Here is a chance for student
to enjoy the facilities of the I-M Building with their dates.
Surely this extensive program will satisfy the athletic interest
of every male student at Michigan. But, of course, if anyone comes u]
with a new sport, just see Riskey, and he will'find a place for you i
his program.
