SDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1957 THE MICHIGAN DAILY
About Saturday's Foe
By PAUL BORMAN
A persistent stray dog, brisk
weather and a defensive scrim-
mage were featured in yesterday's
football practice at Ferry Field.
Practice started out with drills
to protect against Illini aerials.
The visitors' formations and plays
are accumulated for the team by
two of its coaches, Matt Patanelli
and Don Dufek whose job includes
scouting opponents for two weeks
in advance of the game.
Later in the day, Oosterbaan
called for a defensive scrimmage
where more of the scouts' valuable
information was put to use.
Patanelli is an ex-Wolverine'
and starred at end on the 1934-
35-36 teams while Dufek is of a
more recent vintage, having
played on the 1949-50-51 squads
Yesterday, however, Dufek, who
is an assistant backfield coach,
was more concerned with stopping
Tom Haller's passes and Bobby
Mitchell's running as he drilled
the backs on defense. At the same
time, end coach Patanelli was also
getting his wingmen ready for
Ray Eliot's backs.
The players donned parkas,
clapped their hands, and jumped
up and down trying to keep them-
selves warm in the 35 degree tem-

seems to be as permanent in

LIONS REVAMP DEFENSE:
Tittle, Owens Spark San Francisco
By DON DRESCHER
Sunday was a great day for
veteran San Francisco quarterback
Y. A. Tittle.
Tittle's performince in the For-
ty-Niners 35-31 win over Detroit
was nothing short of sensational.
The six-foot former Louisiana
State star completed 21 passes out
of 28 attempts, setting the famed
Detroit pass defense back on its

Owens' miracle end zone catch
of Tittle's pass reversed the tide
and gave the Forty-Niners the
victory and an even more secure
hold on first place in the Western
Division of the NFL race.
San Francisco Coach Frankie
Albert, former Stanford quarter-
back and twice-named All-Ameri-
can, praised Tittle's showing as his
finest performance in ten years
with the club. Albert, as well as
Tittle and many others, hadnoth-
ing but praise for the tremendous
game played by R. C. Owens.
Speaking of Owens, remarkable
catch for the game-winning score,
Tittle said that he threw the ball

Lion Coach George Wilson,
whose pass defense was plagued
for the second week in a row by
outstanding passers, remarked,
"There's going to be some changes
made." He hinted at a breakup of
the famed defensive combination
of Jack Christiansen, Yale Lary,
Jimmy David. and Carl Karilevacz,
which has been tops in pro circles
for several years.
A logical replacement in the unit
is Terry Barr, former Michigan
star, and a strong defensive player.

The last time Michigan entered
the Big Ten cross country was
1954, and they won.
Track Coach Don Canham and
his assistants Elmer Swanson and
Lynn Doherty are again grooming
a squad to compete after a two-
year absence, and again they hope
to capture the crown.
Leading this year's squad are
seniors Geert Keilstrup, Helmar
Dollwet and Milt Robinson. The
first two should be aimed for high
finishes, although Dollwet hasn't
yet rounded into shape.
The team which will compete in
the Conference finals in Chicago
on November 16 will consist of
seven men. Besides the above three
Canham will select four out of
the following six: juniors Jack
Green, John Dierdorff, and Don
Truex, and sophomores Dick
Schwartz, Jim Wyman and Bernie
The team has had a few warmup
meets with small colleges already
this fall, and has a Big Ten team
on the line this Saturday as a final

Red Wings Tie
DETROIT (M) - The New York
Rangers shared first place in the
National Hockey League for the
first time in 16 years last night.
They climbed into a tie for the
lead with the idle Montreal Can-
adiens by playing a 1-1 tie with
the Detroit Red Wings.
Muss Patrick, general manager
of the Rangers, a press box visi-
tor, said that this was the first
time a New York team has had a
chunk of the NHL lead since the
championship season of 1941-42.
Both goals came when Detroit
had .a player in the penalty box.
Camille Henry scored for New'
York, while Alex Delvecchio-tallied
for the Wings.
Canham stresses the fact that
dual-meets show little of what is
to be expected when the Confer-
ence finals roll around, principally
because the field is so much larger
in a big meet.
He isn't ready yet to make any
predictions about the chances for
victory on the 16th. At present the
personnel isn't certain, and much
depends on Dollwet's condition by
