tight. Because of a height disad-
vantage the Washington offense
was built on the principle of mov-
ing the ball around until they got
the opening for the one good shot,
but it never came.
Time and again they passed up
jump shots from around the post
looking for the opening to- drive
into the basket but the Michigan
defensive speed and teamwork
never gave them the chance.
It was somewhat paradoxical
that the shots Washington was
passing up were the shots that
Michigan was taking and making
to win the game.
Despite this good play by the
Michigan defense, Coach Bill Per-
igo remarked after the game that
the team was still not in the type
of condition it will need for Big
Ten play.
This was evident in. the tired
look on the faces of several of the
players after the game.
This is due for the most part to
the zone defenses and slow-moving
teams that the Wolverines have
met in their last three games.
When they meet teams that will
make them run more, they will
probably reach the peak Perigo
The game was closely called, on
occasion. Michigan was charged
with 26 fouls, while the Bears
were tapped 24 times.
As far as the Wolverines went it
was a case of a little too aggressive
ball-hawking for the type of game
that was being called.

There is a possibility that he
may be able to see action next
week. Sophomore Delky Dozzi also
was sidelined due to an upper leg
injury and possible torn ligaments.
A bright spot was the fine goal-
tending job turned in by Ross
Childs in both games of the week-
end series. Last night Childs made
28 saves as compared to 16 stops
made by Nodak goalie, Bob Peters,
in the game.
Coach Al Renfrew, meeting the
team he coached a year ago, ex-
pressed satisfaction in obtaining a
split with the Nodaks, known to be
a very strong home team. Last sea-
son the Sioux didn't drop a league
game on their home ice, and the

club has never lost both games of
a home series.
First Venture
The two-game series was Michi-
gan's first venture into WIHL
competition this season and since
this is the only meeting of the two
teams this season each game is
worth two points in league scoring.

Big Ten Coaches, Officials Elect Pace
As League's Most aae Player

CHICAGO {t"} - All - America i
halfback Jim Pace of Michigan
was voted the Big Ten's most valu-
able player to his team for the
1957 football season, it was an-'
nounced yesterday.
Pace won by a one point mar-
gin over another All-America play-
er, center Dan Currie of Michigan
State, in the closest most valuable
decision in 20 years.
However, Pace, who led the Big
Ten in scoring and rushing, re-
ceived 13 votes for first place from
the 23 electors, compared with nine
for Currie.
Currie got nine second place
votes against twofor Pace. Thus
the Michigan halfback won, 28
points to 27, first place counting
two points and second place one
Top Runner
Pace, 195-pound senior from Lit-
tle Rock, Ark., led the Big Ten
in scoring with nine touchdowns
and in rushing with 584 yards on
100 carries. The Big Ten's indoor
sprint champion, Pace was a spec-
tacular open field runner. He was
a fine safety man on defense and
a good blocker.
A first draft choice of the San
Francisco 49ers, Pace has not yet
decided if he will try the profes-
sional game.
Narrow Margin
This was the narrowest margin
of decision since 1947 when Corby
Davis, Indiana fullback, won by
one point over Cecil Isbell, Pur-
due 'halfback.
For winning this honor, Pace
will receive the Chicago Tribune

The election board included the
Western Conference football
coaches, ten veteran football offi-
cials, Big Ten Commissioner K.

L. (Tug) Wilson, and sports edi-
tor Wilfrid Smith and sports col-
umnist Dave Condon of the Chi-
cago Tribune.
Ballot on 10 Players
The balloting was on 10 players,
one nominated by his squad from
each conference school. Others re-
ceived votes, but the balloting was
concentrated on Pace and Currie.
Other most valuable players at
their schools were end Rod Han-

sen, Illinois; end Tony Alosio, In-
diana; guard Bob Commings,
Iowa; quarterback Dick Larson,
Minnesota; halfback Willmer Fow-
ler, Northwestern; guard Bill Job-
ko, Ohio State; and center Neil
Habig, Purdue.
The silver football award was
inaugurated in 1924 with the first
trophy going to Harold (Red)
Grange of Illinois.

third period in which many fights
broke out. Michigan's John Hut-
ton was involved in a scrap with
Nodak wing Stan Paschke at 13:04
of the period which resulted in
five-minute penalties to both men.
The fighting only typified the in-
tense fierceness with which the
game was played.
In the final frame, North Dakota
added an insurance goal by Ralph
Lyndon at 5:55. This gave the
Sioux a 4-0 lead which turned out
to be the final score.
The team returns home today to
face a strenuous week of activity.
Michigan must play two games
each with Denver and Colorado,
each game counting two points.

LOS ANGELES 0P)-There were
indications yesterday that the
Pasadena Tournament of Roses
Assn. soon will give notice of can-
cellation of its contract with the
Pacific Coast Conference after the
1959 Rose Bowl Football game.
Withdrawal of UCLA, California
and Southern California from the
PCC makes the contract undesir-
able from the Pasadena point of
Speculation is that, beginning
with the 1960 game, the Tourna-
ment Selection Committee will be
calling the shots, just as it did
before the PCC and Big Ten sign-
ed their athletic pact in 1947. The
committee always had a PCC
team, but the opponents came
from all sections.
But after 1960 the committee
wouldn't have to worry about the
PCC. Its Western*representative
could come from anywhere west of
the Mississippi. The Eastern Re-
presentative, likewise, would not
be restricted to the Big Ten.

Restrictions imposed by the
PCC-Big Ten pact took consider-
able luster from the Rose Bowl
game in certain years. The pro-
hibition against any school play-
ing two years in a row hurt and
the Big Ten domination of the
game through continued victories
unquestionably cut interest in the
contest. Despite this, the Rose
Bowl always has been a financial
Other Developments
Aside from the Bose Bowl game,
other developments are taking
form since the withdrawal an-
nouncement by the three schools.
Los Angeles Herald and Express
Sports Editor, George T. Davis,
says the withdrawal means "a
brand new nationwide conference,
embracing such schools as Army,
Navy, Notre Dame, Air Force
Academy, Pittsburgh, Miami of
Florida" and others. He said it
means, "As far as the public is
concerned, better competition in

"Where The Good Clothes Come Froms"

CHICAGO (P) - The Big Ten
r yesterday closed an eligibility
loophole which had led to stock-
piling of football players.
Faculty representatives, in the
last session of the annual winter
meetings, amended rules to cut
off eligibility after eight semesters,
or 12 terms, that an athlete is in
Previously 10
The old-rules provided a cutoff
after 10 semesters, or 15 terms,
whichever academic period is in
use. Under this, schools could keep
a football player out of games,1
using him only as a ,"red, shirted"
scrub in practices so he could be
further seasoned.
The player thus would get all
the benefits of daily drills with-
out using any of his eligibilityand
would become a thoroughly ex-
perienced player and still have
three varsity seasons remaining.

to have taken part in the practice.
Commissioner K. L. (Tug) Wilson
said the Big Ten, in taking action
against it, noted that "the trend
of stockpiling is country wide."
Financial Aid
A change was made in the time
a tender of financial aid to a pros-
pective prep athlete could be made.
Tenders now can be made on May
1, instead of June 15, and on Dec.
1, instead of Nov. 15. In each
instance, the athlete still must
accept or reject a tender within 21
days after receiving it.
The financial plan, which bases
aid on proven need, was adopted
last February. Yesterday it was re-
ferred back to the original draft-
ing committee which will study
any changes that may be needed
and as well its progress. The com-
mittee will report at the . confer-
ence meeting in March.
Asst. Commissioner Bill Reed
disclosed that of 1,341 financial
statements by parents processed
for freshmen there was only one
falsification found in a spot check.
The boy was ruled ineligible for
varsity sports for his entire school-
ing. The statements are required
as the basis for determining the
need under the aid plan.
