Lions Receive Acclaim
From Beaten 'Frisco'


San Fr a n c i s ca Forty-Niner
coach Frankie Albert sat glumly
in a corner of his dressing room
wtih the San Francisco writers
not saying a word.
He was apparently still in par-
tial shock. The writers were not
themselves yet either after the
humbling hung on the visitors by
,the Detroit Lions, 31-10.
The first thing Albert said
summed up the game: "Even if we
knew each play they were going
to run, we couldn't have done any-
thing about it," he muttered.
Albert Not Satisfied
"They were good and we were
bad," he continued. "But we're
still in first we're still in the race,
he said glumly. hardly the talk of
a title contender.
R. C. "Overdrive" Owens whose
gears were jammed by the bril-

liant play of the Lion secondary
"We j ust fell apart." The main
difference, he observed was that
the Lions were rushing Tittle.
Praise From Wilson
In the Lion locker room, Coach
George Wilson agreed with Owens
"The boys were really up for
this one. The big difference was
the work of our four defensive
linemen, Gene Cronin, Gerry Per-
ry, Gil Mains, and Darris McCord."
They were regular fixtures in
the 49'er backfield throughout
most of the game. '
Although Wilson thought the
big difference to be the rushing
of Tittle, he was very pleased with
his defensive backs, especially his
two new stalwarts, Terry Barr
and Gary Lowe.
Barr Praised
He had nothing but praise for
Barr. The former Wolverine star
has proved very able on pass de-
fense for the last two weeks.
"Barr has worked out well. He
was very good today," said Wilson.
"Teaning him with the five oth-
er defensive backs gives us six
men who can be moved around
when needed," he declared.
When asked about the possibil-
ity of working Barr on the offen-
sive platoon; the freshman coach
"Barr was drafted as a defen-
sive back. We'll probably keep him
To emphasize Wilson's descrip-
tion of the game as a "big win,"
the coach went n to say:
"San Francisco has three of
the best ends in the league, es-
pecially Billy Wilson."
The consensus of the Detroit

players disagreed with Albert.
They didn't feel that the 49'ers
let up, but thought the win was
more the fact of their own desire.
A hobbling John Henry John-
son pointed this up:
"Those boys (San Francisco)
were tackling as hard as they ever
do, you've got to give our boys
Going up behind one of Tittle's
trouble-makers, defensive lineman
Gene Cronin, you didn't even have
to ask the question.
The burly 1i a e m a n turned
around to show the usual number
of bruises and cuts along with a
beautiful shiner.
"It-wasn't easy. I got the H---
knocked out of me," he answered.

On the Mend!
Michigan began its physical
recovery from the Indiana
game- as John Herrnstein, Jim
Byers and Jim Van Pelt took
part in yesterday's two hour
practice sessiouns. Coach Closter-
baan said it was "problemati-
cal" whether Herrnstein's hip
bruise would let him play Sat-
urday against Ohio State. Sec-
ond string fullback Jim Byers,
who resprained an ankle,,is
expected to see some action
Saturday. Quarterback Jim Van
Pelt, bothered by an injured left
knee and a charley horse, did
not take part in contact work
but should be ready for the
Ohio State clash, the coaches
said. The injured centers, Gene
Snider with a bad knee and Ray
Wine with a hairline fracture
of the left hand should also be
able to play.

... praises Barr

Michigan's Biggest Secret!
Head Coach Bennie Oosterbaan broke away from his usual casual
routine and made yesterday's practice sessions strictly off-limits to ;
gentlemen of the press and everyone else.
The only thing that could be derived from a long range view
was that the session was being held in the field house and that at
least three of.the 'scrubs' were decked out in fiery Ohio State red-and-
grey jerseys.
From this secretive behavior it must be surmised that not only
are Oosterbaan and company deadly serious about the coming week-
end, but also they apparently have something to nide.
Oosterbaan's most potent weapon, however, just cannot be hidden
under the bushel that is Yost Fieldhouse. It is now common knowl-
edge, both here and at Columbus,
that the man to stop if you want
to give the Wolverines a rough
time, is Jim Pace.
So far the halfback-tailback '
has provided not only more than
his share of yards gained and
touchdowns scored, but he has
also been consistently coming up
with the key plays in Michigan's
When Michigan State was down
here, Pace was the only man who
could fight his way into theSpar-
, ; tans' end zone. He went 55 yards
of the 69 yard scoring drive, and
at the time this put Michigan
briefly, back in the ball game.
Up in Minnesota, it was Pace
who best portrayed the Wolverine
JIM PACE spirit that day with his brilliant
'M' workhorse one-handed catch and 20-yard
** .gallop into the end zone. It gave
the Wolverines a solid lead and highlighted their brilliant second
quarter. Against Iowa in the first quarter Michigan was behind. Once
again Pace provided the spark with a 65-yard scoring punt return.
Less than 15 minutes later Michigan had a half time lead of 21-7.
He ripped off large chunks of yardage against Illinois until he
was knocked cold. When he left the game so did Michigan's ground
attack. Last week he was the whole show against Indiana.
Pace's statistics show his value to the team at a glance. He owns
500 of Michigan's 1,502 yards on the ground. Of the 440 times a Wol-
verine back has dived into scrimmage, 101 times it's been Pace, the
rest of the time one of the 14 others. In scoring he is tied for the Big
Ten leadership with 48 points. Counting Georgia and UCLA he has'
a 56-point total.
Pace's extraordinary behavior on the field isn't just circum-
stance. As a sophomore all the raches could see he had great speed.
The problem then was that he didn't know how to use it efficiently
and he wasn't much on defense:
All this has changed. The Pace that has peen amazing both fans
and coaches is a highly improved ball player. He keeps his legs
on the ground now and he follows his blockers. No more hurdling into
the line and' with perhaps a few exceptions no more cross country
trots away from his interference. Sophomore trademarks have been
On defense he's one of the better safety men in the Conference.
With his speed he's very hard to outrun be it end or halfback, and
he's developed into a sure tackler.
Another feature the Arkansas halfback has acquired is a driving
running style which he now combines with his amazing shifting
The latter has always been part of him. Many is the occasion
when Pace, trapped for sure, has outfaked his would-be tacklers and
run right around them.
This year he has also been running through them. A perfect ex-
ample of the bulldozing Pace came in the televised Minnesota game
on the same play in which he made his one-handed catch. A Gopher
tackler was all ready to drop Pace but found himself flat on his face
with the object of his efforts running over him. A .vicious shoulder
block by the TD bound Pace had, flattened him.
Two more attributes which make the Arkansas halfback the 4
football player that he is are his ruggedness and his love of the game.
Because he's so dangerous, the opposition is forever on the watch
for his signal to be called. They usually know a good deal of the Pace
series, and sometimes they build their defense to stop him.
The result - ,a mass gang tackle when they don't get fooled.
Many is the time when Pace has gone down under a host of tacklers
only to bounce up when the mess is untangled. Also in the line of
durability, Pace has started every game this year. Only at Illinois '
was he slowed down by injury and they had to knock him but.
The secret practice, then, no doubt has its points, but Pace's per-
formance can't be put under wraps..What he does should make a
great deal of difference against the Buckeyes, and no doubt they're
doing a lot of work to try and stop him.
If they aren't, I'm sure they're making a ;mistake, because to
date - as Pace goes, so go the Wdlverines.

The Applied Physics Laboratory
(APL) of 'The Johns Hopkins
University exists solely to make
scientific and technical advances.
For this reason we are able to
offer our staff members freedom
to explore tangential ideas,
which frequently lead to signifi-
cant accomplishments. Among
our "firsts" re the' world's
first supersonic ramjet and the
first large booster rocket. As
far back as 1948 we achieved
fully-guided supersonic flight.
Today two guided missiles
that grew out 'of our pioneer
work are in production: The
TERRIER is now a fleet service
weapon, and TALOS (above)
has been adapted for land as
well as ship-based operation.
When TALOS was recently
unveiled by the' Navy, APL
shared honors with many asso-
ciate and subcontractors who
had worked undert our technical
direction in its development.
We are presently engaged in
missile assignments of a highly

advanced nature which cannot
be divulged for security reasons.
Suffice it to say that, as always,
our work is of such vital im-
portance and urgency that little
is spared to facilitate its progress.
Scientists and engineers at APL
are in the vanguard of science
and enjoy the keenest sort of
responsibility and challenge.

tunities awaiting men with
