MSU Smashes Minnesota,
Wisconsin Conquers Illinois

By John Hillyer


DON'T COMPLAIN-Michigan won.
The Wolverines have always-or almost always-made it a policy
not to run up large scores when the opportunity to do so onfronts
them. This policy continued yesterday afternoon as they easily got the
best of Indiana, 27-13.
Actually, it might not have been so easy had it not been for
another flashy ,one-man show by Jimmy Pace. The Little Rock sprinter
scored two touchdowns and set up another with a long run. He now
has 48 points in conference play, good for a tie for the leadership
with Ohio State's Don Clark, who didn't play yesterday. The showdown
will take place next weekend.
Pace gained 128 yards and averaged 8.5 a carry. He was probably
the main reason why there weren't fewer than 56,254 on hand to
watch the action. This was obviously a weekend when students were
fishing-and not too deep-for excuses to be elsewhere than Michigan
Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
.yBut those who did attend saw a much-improved Indiana squad
give the hosts a pretty interesting time of it, at least for most of the
game.The Hoosiers haven't won a Big Ten game all year, but yesterday
they must have felt just a little better than usual about losing. They
scored twice as' many touchdowns as they had against conference
competition all season, they intercepted five passes and they were
just a touchdown to the bad at halftime.
A Tradition .. .
LOSING FOOTBALL GAMES is rapidly becoming an Indiana tradi-
tion, and the difference between a Michigan locker-room after a
loss and Indiana's yesterday was really a revelation. The atmosphere
was almost relaxed.
Coach Bob Hicks is a pleasant-looking, pleasant-acting gentleman
in his mid-thirties who could never be recognized as coach of a Big
Ten team with an excellent chance to lose all of its Conference games.
He was smiling and joking with reporters when we walked in.
"We finally played a respectable football game," he said enthusi-
astically. "We made too many mistakes to win it, but our kids fought
like hell. They'll try again next week (against arch-rival Purdue). No
kidding, they give it everything they've got." Some of the Indiana
players in past weeks have quit the squad in disgust, and Hicks was
obvously proud of his "men" who yesterday performed admirably
without the help of the "boys" who dropped out.
It was obviously their best showing of the season-especially that
of halfback Jim Yore, a 210-1b. speed merchant from Battle Creek.
Yore specialized in reverses, where he would start out on the right
wing, take the ball from the quarterback and burst to the left,' either
off-tackle, off-guard or around the end.
Hicks had nothing but praise for Pace (like everyone else). "He's
a mighty fine athlete-one of the best.I've ever seen."
Bennie Oosterbaan was happy to win, but admitted he'd expected
more from his charges, especially the third and fourth stringst He
called the Hoosiers a "fighting team. I thought they hit hard, and
they never gave up."
An Experiment...
HE EXPLAINED his use of fullback Jim Byers, who had two ankle
sprains. "We wanted to try out his ankles," Oosterbaan said. "The
trainer OK'd it and Byers wanted to go. Exercise is supposed to help
after a certain period of time." The big boy couldn't stay in long,
however, and limped off the field after a few plays. Oosterbaan said
his condition was not worsened by the venture. It's easy to imagine
why Byers, who is from- Evansville, Ind., and whose brother, Phil,
played basketball at I.U., was itching to rough it for a while.
First-string fullback John Herrnstein didn't have such a good
time of it, however. To add to his bad foot, he received a serious hip
injury yesterday and had to leave early. Quarterback Jim Van Pelt
hurt his knee, and Oosterbaan kept him out for the rest of the game.
"He could have gone back in, but we wanted to save him," the coach
It was a day for substituting, and in this respect Michigan sup-
porters shouldn't be too upset because Indiana scored its highest Big
Ten total for the year or because Michigan's score was the lowest
against the Hoosiers in a Conference fray to date,
Men like Rio, McCoy, Harper, Groce, Spidel, Morrow, Dickey and
Bob Johnson, who beat their brains out all week in practice just as the
first-stringers do, should be given the chance when it arrives. True,
the Wolverines revealed their lack of depth when these athletes were
in, but perhaps this is something that should be discovered.
So this one goes into the books, and rightly so, as a Michigan
victory. Once again, all is well. Now let's get those Buckeyes!

By The Associated Press'
Michigan State used a combina-
tion of blinding speed and crush-
ing power to completely overrun
Minnesota, 42-13, yesterday.
A crowd of 65,718 saw the
snappy Spartans roll to a 35-0
halftime lead and coast in from
there. It was an afternoon of
frustration for Minnesota, which
now has three wins against four
losses in conference play.
The Gopher ground game was
stopped nearly cold, and State's
big ends kept crashing in to break
up pass attempts by quarterbacks
Bobby Cox and Dick Larsen.
Wisconsin Wins
In another Big Ten game, Wis-
consin, relying on its stable of
fine sophomores, and a rock ribbed
defense, registered a surprisingly
easy 24-13 victory over sputtering

Tom Kendrick. Between them they
picked up 134 of their teams 145
yards on the ground.
It was the agreed opinion of
Hoosier coach Bob Hicks and a
sportswriter from Indianapolis
that yesterday's game was In-
diana's best of the season. They
also agreed that Yore and Ken-
drickahad played better than ever
All Pace
No one could outshine Pace,.
however. On Michigan's first three
touchdowns, it was Pace who did
the majority of ball-moving.
On the first touchdown Michi-
gan marched 48 yards. Pace ran'
for 33 of these and went. over for
the score.
On the second touchdown, Mich-
igan went 55 yards, Pace 31. Van
Pelt's pass to Gary Prahst put the
ball in the end zone.
For the third score, the Wol-
verines' marched 69 yards, this
time Pace grinding out 43 of them
and adding his second six ? point
contribution at the end of the

Center Ray Wine intercepted an
Indiana aerial on the Hoosier 43
and returned it to the 17 to set up
Michigan's last score. Five plays
later, Brad Meyers ran it over
after taking a short pass from
Two Touchdowns
Indiana's two touchdowns - a
feat they haven't performed since
edging Villanova three weeks ago
-were scored by fullback Ed. Fritz
and Yore. Fritz's came on a one-
yd. plunge in the second quarter
and Yore ran eight yards around
left end in the fourth quarter to
score his.
Many Wolverines who normpally
sit out much or all of the game
saw action yesterday as Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan used 38 play-
ers, many of the lower strings
playing much of the second half.
Only John Herrnstein was in-
jured more than slightly for Mich-
igan. The hard-luck fullback re-
injured his foot and may be out
for next week's contest with con-
ference champion Ohio State. Van
Pelt and Byers, who were both
shaken up, were reported to be all

After the victory Head Coadh
Bennie Oosterbann seemed to feel
that his team's not - up - to - par
showing was due primarily to the
advances on Indiana. He admitted
that he didn't feel the team was
up any too high for the game.
"After all," he said, "they can
all read the newspapers."
And as the newspapers reported,
Indiana isn't a worldbeater.
