Van Pelt then led the second
touchdown drive which started on
the Michigan 35. Myers and Jim
Pace both ran well to place the
ball on the Gopher 14. Fullback
Jim Myers, who played most of
the game as John Herrnstein was
completely sidelined, made one.
Van Pelt then faded and hit Pace
toward the left sideline, and the
Arkansas flash struggled and side-
stepped the rest of the way to the
end zone.
Van Pelt's conversion made it
14-0, which proved to be enough
to win.
Cox Intercepts
Minnesota again couldn't gain,
and Noskin and company again
launched an offensive. But quar-
terback Bobby Cox intercepted a
Noskin pass on his own10 to halt
the drive.
Pace and Myers led the next
series, but the Wolverines were
stoppedon the fourteen. With
Myers holding, Van Pelt booted
a perfect place kick through the
goal posts for a field goal. Michi-
gan led 17-0.
On the third play after the kick-
off, Bowers intercepted a Cox
aerial on the Minnesota 28, re-
turning it to the 15.
Pace carried to the eight, but
the play was nllified because of
an illegal motion penalty. With the
ball on the 20, Van Pelt called the

first single wing play of the game,
and it turned out to be the one
which completed Michigan's scor-
ing for the afternoon.
Pace Scores
Pace took the ball on a direct
snap, ran back and faked a pass,j
then dashed down the left sideline
and cut in to score untouched be-
hind superb blocking. Van Pelt
made it 24-0. The ensuing kickoff
was the final play of the half.
Minnesota finally got rolling in!
the third quarter. With second
string quarterback Dick Larson out
with an injury, Jim Reese filled
in most adequately for him as
Cox's substitute.
He called a series of running
plays, alternating fullback Rich
Borstad and halfback Bill Martin
effectively, but Minnesota couldn't
score.

DETROIT (A)-The Philadelphia
Warriors withstood a second half
flurry by the Detroit Pistons and
their star center George Yardley
last night in handing Detroit its
second straight National Basket-
ball Association defeat, 112-100.
Yardley established a new Pis-
ton scoring record with 41 points,
but the Warriors got enough to
offset that from their double-bar-
reled scoring aces, Neal Johnson
and Paul Arizin.
Philadelphia charged into an
11-0 lead before the Pistons could
score a point. Yardley broke the.
ice with a score at 5:05 of the first
quarter. The Warriors left the
filoor at intermission with a 62-42
edge. Detroit, with Yardley doing
most of the work, closed the gap
to four points with three minutes
to go in the game.
Arizin, ,the NBA's leading scoier
last year, had fouled out with five
minutes to go. But the Warriors
still maintained control with

The Coming of Age
MINNEAPOLIS-In a surge of unexpected power, the Michigan foot-
ball team came of age yesterday bringing back the Little Brown
Jug with a display of winning spirit that has shown itself to date only
in the last quarter of the Northwestern game. The Wolverines started,
played, and finished their clash against Minnesota's golden Gophers
as if they really wanted to win. There was no sluggish start, no lacka-
daisical third quarter, and no need for another dynamic finish. It was
Michigan all the way.
There were critical moments in yesterday's game, moments where
Michigan had failed in past games, but which against Minnesota were
met and conquered. Michigan marched all the way to the goal line the
first time it received the ball on the opening kickoff, only to be stopped
inches short of paydirt.
Minnesota took over and roared out of the huddle, seemingly
confident that now the game would go their way. They tried three
times to move the ball out to more operating room. Michigan's line
remained firm. The Gophers had to kick. The Wolverine offense then
calmly finished the task it had started and scored three plays later on
Stan Noskin's long pass to Dave Bowers.
Michigan then turned on a great show of power the rest of the
half, building up a 24-0 lead and completely dominating play. The
halftime activities proceeded-the third quarter and final test then
began. Michigan has not been having good third quarters this year.
A letdown was therefore expected. No such letdown came. Minnesota
fought its way to the end zone, not because the Wolverines relaxed,
but only because a team can't forever stop Minnesota calibre talent.
Twice the Gophers came slamming down the field under the
inspired leadership of third string quarterback Jim Reese, and both
times they were halted, once on the very edge of the goal line. It's a
real tribute to the Michigan football team that yesterday they made
no mistakes which were costly. The few that were made were im-
mediately compensated for.
An Adage ...
THERE IS AN ADAGE which goes to the effect that Michigan foot-
ball teams always improve as the season gets older. Yesterday's
victory came to prove this true. It certainly didn't look like the same
team that was humiliated two weeks ago.
Quarterback Jim Van Pelt outplayed rival Bobby Cox completely.
The senior from Evanston did everything well. He completed six passes
in eleven tries for 85 yards. Cox completed none. From scrimmage
Van Pelt ran the ball 12 times and picked up 50 more yards. Cox made
15 yards in 8 tries. Van Pelt's toe accounted for three extra points and
the first field goal of his college career. Cox didn't kick from place-
ment. As the offensive leader of his team. Van Pelt was unmatched.
On the other side of football, defense, Jerry Goebel was the
driving force. Not only did he call the signals which contained Minne-
sota most of the afternoon, but his spirit was inexhaustible. When the
Wolverines were being pushed back, it was always Goebel who went.
from man to man with a slap and a challenge not to give in. The big
center, who came back from an injury to fight his way up from third
to first string, was the essence of yesterday's Wolverine's defensive
strength.
The Tide of Battle.. .
MORE THAN ANY OTHER one touchdown march and one defensive
play seemed to reflect the tide of yesterday's battle. On Michigan's
drive for their second score,, this reporter has never seen backs run
harder than did Brad Myers, Jim Pace and Van Pelt. All three literally
drove their way through hosts of Minnesota tacklers for substantial
gains. On at least three occasions the crowd thought one of them had
been stopped, only to see them burst out of the defensive swarm for
another five yards. The touchdown play climaxed the drive. Pace made
a lunging one-handed catch of Van Pelt's pass and scampered in
with it.
The one defensive play came at the crisis in the third quarter
when Minnesota was on the move. They had scored once and were on
their way again. It was a third down and four situation and the play
headed around Walt Johnson's end. Two blockers hit Johnson but he
wouldn't move. The ball carrier was forced to turn in and was dropped
for a loss. The Gophers were halted.

By CARL RISEMAN
Five teams lead the NFL with
identical 3-1 records and each of
these squads has a chance to fat-,
ten up its record against 'lesser',
opponents today.
Three teams-the Detroit Lions,
the Baltimore Colts and the San
Francisco Forty Niners are nestled
at the head of the Western Divi-
sion while the Cleveland Browns
and the New York Giants head the,
Eastern Division.-
After two breath taking home-,
town victories, the Lions travel to
the West Coast to take on the
tough Los Angeles Rams. The
game should be exceedingly rough
since the Rams have suffered
three successive losses on the road
and have yet to live up to their
pre-season billing,
Bears Play 49ers
Willie Gallimore was the secret

PIPES

Sunday in the Bears' victory over
the Rams but the Bears will have
their hands full against San Fran-
cisco. The Forty Niners have reeled
off three straight victories and
should be an exceedingly hard
team to beat in the friendly con-
fines of Kezar Stadium.
Cleveland's mighty de f ensive
wall will try to throttle the offen-
sive machine of the Chicago Car-
dinal's in a game at Chicago to-
day. Led by the brilliant playing
of Ollie Matson the Cards have
scored more points than any other
team in the Eastern Division. But
the Browns are the league leaders
in the defensive department, giv-
ing up fewer points than any other
team in the NFL.
Depend on Unitas
Green Bay travels to Baltimore
and the hopes of another victory
for the Baltimore Colts rests on
the throwing arm of quarterback
John Unitas. So far this season
Unitas has thrown 12 touchdown
passes including four in last Sun-
day's loss to Detroit.
Washington's p e s k y Redskins
will try to halt the New York
Giants as the Giants try to extend
their winning streak fo four.

Injuries .
AS TO INJURIES, Bowers who played a tremendous game while in
the lineup for the still injury hampered Gary Prahst, left the game
in the fourth quarter with a dislocated shoulder. In the locker room,
he reported that it was back in place but still felt as if something was
"moving around in there." Pace also left late in the game with a
bruised hip but reports that it shouldn't bother him next week.
With the team riding high and looking the best yet this season,
prospects for the coming week have brightened. No longer will Michi-
gan be considered the underdog as it was before yesterday's game.
The problem now is not so much in talent but in keeping the team
"up" and looking ahead to the next game without overeconfidence.
