Herrnstein Still Sidelined;
'M' Undergoes Stiff Drills

Lions' Defense Bolstered by Zatkoff

BYERS COMES THROUGH--Jim Byers, replacing injured full-
back John Herrnstein, slashes his way through the Northwestern
line for one of many sizable gains which he reeled off in the
Northwestern game Saturday.
Soccer Team Interest
Grows on"M' Campus

Michigan's soccer team has
fared much better against its
East Lansing brethren than the
football.- squad has this year.
MSU's highly rated soccer
squad was tied by the Maize and
Blue 3-3, in an early meeting. The
fact is more surprising since the
Spartan's have a varsity soccerj
squad and the Wolverines are not
recognized by the athletic depart-
Most Popular Sport
Soccer, which is the most popu-
lar sport in the world, was organ-
ized on the Michigan campus ap-
proximately five years ago. Since
then the sport has picked up a
great deal of interest and at the
present time a 10-team league

has been organized by the Inter-
national Center with the top
players being picked for the "var-
Captains Joe Prager and Robert
Burnett expect the sport to con-
tinue to gain interest on campus.
due to the large soccer playing
element found primarily in the
International Center.
The soccer team has a 35-man
squad with players coming from
Germnay, Latvia, Ghana, South
America, Finland and also has a
seven man contingent from the
United States. F
The schedule for this fall in-
cludes six games. Two of the
games will be with Michigan State
while Ohio Wesleyan, Eastern
Michigan, Western Michigan and
Toronto are also on the schedule.

An unfortunate leg injury has
put Michigan's first string full-
back John Herrnstein on the side-
lines and given an obscure grid-
der named Jim Byers a chance
to show that he can more than
capably fill in.
Byers, a junior from Evansville,
Indiana, received his chance to
start last Saturday against the
Wildcats. His record more than
speaks for itself.
The 6', 198-lb. fullback cracked
his way through the Northwestern
defense for 92 yds. on 13 carries
for a formidable 7.2 average.
Oosterbaan Praises Byers
With Herrnstein out indefinite-
ly Coach Bennie Oosterbaan yes-
terday announced that Byers will
be his starter for Saturday's Little
Brown Jug tilt.
Oosterbaan was high in praise
of Byers and said: "Jim is a fine,
young player. He is a hard work-
er and has been constantly im-
proving himself."
Along with Byers; the first-string
unit consisted of Jim Van Pelt at
quarterback, Brad Myers at right
half, and Jim Pace at left half.
The only other Saturday re-
placement will be Brad Myers
who is replacing right half Mike
Shatusky. Shatusky is still in the
hospital in traction with a pain-
ful back injury.
To Alternate
When asked, Oosterbaan re-
fused to designate who is his first
string right guard. "Both Mary
Nyren and Gerry Marciniak are
equal and I have not set either on
the first or second string," he
Michigan's coach was high in
praise for Jerry Goebel, who ap-
pears to have won back the first
string center spot which he held
before breaking his leg last year.
Oosterbaan commented that
Goebel is very high spirited and
would start this Saturday.

National Basketball Assn. season
last night just the way they ended
last spring's playoff, by beating
the St. Louis Hawks, 115-90, be-
fore a home crowd of 9,024.
A 34-point last quarter turned
the game into a rout after the
Hawks had stayed within striking
range for three periods and had
led several times in the first half.

The team went through its stif-
fest Tuesday drills of the fall yes-
terday. Along with pass patterns,
dummy drills, and defensive drills,
the squad was treated to a con-
tact scrimmage and wind sprints.

The Detroit Lions following
their opening game loss to the
Baltimore Colts have come back
to win three straight games and
move into a first place tie in the-
Western Conference of the Na-
tional Football League along with
San Francisco and Baltimore.
One of the main reasons De-
troit has moved back into -conten-
tion has been the outstanding
play of their defensive platoon.
According to the Lion coaching
staff, the key to the tightening of
the defense was the acquisition of
Roger Zatkoff, former Michigan
All-American, from the Cleveland
Linebacking Combination
Since coming to the Lions, Zat-
koff has teamed with Captain Joe

Phil Burt, for the best of the 40,
who immediately was forced to
lateral to Don McNeil who ran the
remaining yards to the goal line.
Matthew's passing accounted for
the Phi Gam's other two TD's, as
he had hit Sam Riggs and Burt
earlier in the end zone, as well as
passing for all the extra points.
Phi Kappa Sigma Dominate
Phi Kappa Sigma oddly enough
was the dominating factor of the
action and was far from not hav-
ing stars of their own, as their
quarterback, Ernie Myers 'flipped
the pigskin to Jack Locker for all
three of their touchdowns. Myers
not only hit with over 50 per cent
of his passes but played the key
role in the Phi Kappa Sigma's de-
fense as well as capturing four of
Matthew's heaves while his squad
totaled six interceptions.

early lead even though th*k star

SAM's quarterback, Joel Taub-
er, tossed the pigskin to Al Green-
berg for the first TD, but Jack
Lewis, the Phi Delt's quarterback
had some ideas of his own about
the game's victor and hit Arv
Phillappart for his squad's first
taste of paydirt in that half too.
Harv Huyser was Lewis' target
for the next six points. Lewis ac-
counted for both extra points.
Another hard fought battle
raged at the other end of South
Ferry Field as the Pi Lambda Phi
lads aimed their big guns at Phi

with a mediocre victory as they

Schmidt to form the most for-
midable linebacking combination
in the league.
Zatkoff came to the Lions from
the Browns in exchange for half-
back Lew Carpenter this summer.
Earlier in the year he was traded
to Cleveland from Green Bay in
a multiple player deal, but re-
fused to report to Cleveland as he
wished to stay tn Detroit to con-
duct a business enterprise.
Zatkoff graduated from Michi-
gan in 1952 and went to the Green
Bay Packers where he earned All-
League honors as a linebacker. He
is especially noted for his deadly
tackling. His teammate on the
Lions, Bobby Layne stated, "Aft-
er being hit by Zatkoff for five
years, I'm sure glad he's now on
our side."
Concerning the Lions and their

chances this year, Zatkoff said,
"We have a real fine ball club
and I think we can win it." When
asked who their main opposition
would be, he replied, "In this
league all the teams are rough.
You can only play one game at a
time. If you start looking toward
a big game two weeks away, the
teams you play before then will
probably beat you."
Praises Colts
Following last Sunday's game
with the Colts, Zatkoff had high
praise for them and their out-
anding qharterback John Unitas.
He stated, "The Colts have always
had the potential, but it has al-
ways been undeveloped. This year
Unitas has taken charge and the
team has really started to play
outstanding football."

Tau Delta Phi's team, under the
quarterbacking of Mike Friedman
knocked over Theta Delta Chi,

Friedman's passes in the last half
