L - 'i By GEORGE VECSEY (Cl KMNmYorhTimnNtwiStrvict COLl'MBI'S. Ohio - An undefeated season, a trip to the Rose Bowl and the Bis Ten championship all came to Ohio State Saturday. They defeated Michigan 50-14 in an exciting clash between two old rivals. Ohio State and Michigan had met 64 times before Saturday, in sunshine and in blizzards, with titles or Rose Bowl trips at stake for one or the other. But every thing was at stake Saturday. The winner would he undefeated in the Big Ten and would play Southern California in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1. Only a loss to California in the non-league opener had marred Michigan's record. But Ohio State, with hard running inside and outside, with defense that forced fumbles and interceptions, broke open a 21-14 lead at half-time, increased it to 27-14 after three quarters, and then scored three more touchdowns and a field goal in the final period to complete! .' overwhelm Michigan Jim Otis, a junior fullback, gained 143 yards in 34 carries and scored four touchdowns to further the bond between his father, a doctor in Celina, Ohio, and the Ohio State Coach. Woodrow Wilson i Woody i Hayes. Otis's father and coach were roommates at Denison College. But Otis was hardly the only star for Ohio. Rex Kern, a 180-pound quarterback, ran with the ball and handed it off. the way-quarterbacks are supposed to do at Ohio State, and Larry Zelina supplied the powerful outside running threat. The defense was just as good. John Tatum, a sophomore comer back from Passaic, N.J., produced one fumble with a hard tackle, intercepted a pass, and chased the Michigan ball-carriers all day. Michigan's Ron Johnson, who had set a Big 10 record by gaining 347 yards and scoring five touchdowns against Wisconsin last week, scored the only two touchdowns by the losers Saturday. The Michigan captain gained 91 yards in 21 carries Saturday. 00l II KS "fit Bob Balfc. aoocoooooooooooooc ' O r ; ; ' j 4 ABC Study For Mavo V. .A 4 Sports Editor ooooooC 000000000000000000000 an IU CkEYEOTIS N OUI I) ! ... As Ohio Stale Ripped M'k lii.n Miracle! i ; 1 Johnson's best run was 39-yard romp in the first quarter, when the game was still scoreless. Tatum caught Johnson on this run, but four plays later Johnson burst off left tackle for one yard and Michigan held a brief 7-0 lead. Ohio State tied the score by rushing with the ball on fourth down with inches to go on Michigan's 4 1 a yard line. Otis was hardly touched as he plunged through left tackle and the score was tied. Ohio then went ahead on Kern's 5-yard keeper up the middle early in the second quarter. Michigan tied the score at 14 after Mike Polaski of Ohio State had fumbled a punt on his own 28. But Ohio State took the lead with 36 seconds left in the first half at the end of an 86-yard drive. Otis bounced off right tackle for two yards. The third quarter produced only one touchdown, a six-yard end run by Zelina. but State's defense was not letting Michigan move. Michigan had to play into the wind in the fourth period, and it soon fell further behind. Jim Roman's 32-yard field goal at 2:35 gave Ohio a 16-point lead and there was noticeable relief among the red-clad State players. After that, the deluge: an interception by Doug Adams set up Kern's 3-vard keeper at at 4:46. A 50-yard jaunt by Ray Gillian set up the 2-yard dive by Otis at 11:23 and an interception by Art Burton set up the last 2-yard dive by Otis at 13:37. There was some jostling near the Michigan bench in the final minute The bad feeling had begun in the lourth period when Michigan s outstanding deven-sive end. Tom Stincic. had tackled Kern at the sideline Later. Ohio players seemed to be directing their energies at Stincic with the outcome already decided - and one personal foul and some shoving was the result, although Stincic concentrated on making eight solo tackles and 15 assists, the most in the game. "" MAVO SMITH learned the ABC's and some other things in Lake Worth schools, with nary a thought that some day he'd be considering Aparicio. Brown and Cardenas as his modernized ABC's They are. from left to right. Luis. Larry and Leo, and they all wear baseball unilorms with names starting with "(!". Again, from left to right. Chicago. Cleveland and Cincinnati. It is not incidental that they are all shortstops, and whether alphabetical, alliterative or what. Mayo Smith perks up his ears at the mention ol shortstop. The Detroit Tiger manager is window-shopping because lie doesn't have a shortstop. That will come as a shock to the St. Louis Cardinals and the millions of World Series TV'iewers who will ask "What happened to Mickey Stanley?" True. Stanley and l.olich were the double-Mickey which Smith concocted lor the ('aids, but here is Smith again, just like the last two winters, hunting a shortstop. Stanley represents great shortstop insurance, but he is too fine an outfielder to be on shuttle service. Last summer Smith tried different inlielders at shortstop, because Hay Oyler was subject to the Year of the 1'itchers. Oyler hit all of .207 the year before, but only .IB last summer. Even more final, the new Seattle club ignored the baiting averages and took Oyler in the expansion draft. So Mayo Smith is hunting again. He has had talks in the past about Aparicio, while the brief period lor inter league trading will create the possibility lor a deal with some National League club like Cincinnati, for Cardenas, who hit about 10(1 points more for the Reds than ilid Oyler for the Tigers. In his own league. Smith admits interest in fellow-townsman Larry Brown, who hit 2:14 lor Cleveland and has improved in the held'. Since you have to give up something to get something it a baseball trade, and most clubs want pitching, a deal with Cleveland would seem logical (if all learns in the majors, the Tribe s Al Dark and pitching coach .lack Sanloid come close to having enough pitching. Thev'd he interested in swapping lor run production, and that is the Detroit stock in trade. Mayo Smith's list doesn't stop with Luis. Larry or Leo, but the ABC's could point toward an interesting deal in the near tut lire.

Then, on the last regular play of the game, after a fumbled on-side kiekoff had given the Crimson possession, Champi hit Vic Gatto with an 8-yard scoring pass.

"Sellers (Ron) put on the greatest exhibition, I have ever seen, Head Coach Bill Peterson said. "He's the best we have ever had even better Fred Hiletnikoff. The defense comes up for something different for Sellers in every game and he still comes through." Did Ail-American Flanker Hon Sellers know he was breaking all those records when he caught that touchdown pass in the third quarter'.' "No." said Sellers, "I never think about records when I'm on the field. They asually come up alter the game, but in this one my teammates began congratulating me and I'd knew 1 had gone over the top." He had praise for the Wake Forest defense. They double teamed me most of the alternoon and were sneaky. They would start out with two. then one would leave. We would call a pass and then for two more. Ironically, it was Harvard's belatedly inspired offense, not its top-ranked defense, that saved the dav "He saved me several passes I had released too early and they spiralled high," Cappleman said. "He just kept on reaching right up there until he caught them. "We had best pass protection of the year, 1 am sure we are going to be all right for Houston. "Sellers was the primary for most of the passes he caught," Cappleman said. "But, he wasn't on that curl pattern from right flank to the left that went for the big TD in the third quarter. The pass was to have gone deeper, but Sellers was open and 1 hit him instead." It wasn't all peaches and cream for the Peach Bowl bound Seminoles Saturday afternoon. At halftime, trailing Wake Forest 1714, Coach Peterson option play and they worked." Peterson said he knew it was going to be a tough ball game when the Wake Forest players came on the field crying. "They were big, tough, and they wanted this game," he said. Over in the Wake Forest locker room. Coach Bill Tate certified the Ron Sellers legend. "That loose-jointed pass receiver was the difference in the ball game," he said. "Sellers is a good player, and in coach's terms that means he is great. He has remarkable moves and speed." North Carolina State, as a result of Saturday's game came out the Atlantic Coast champions. FSU defeated NCS 48-7. Dowling, the 21-year-old senior who would have been playing for Ohio State against Michigan today if he hadn't decided to go to Yale, was spectacular beyond the wildest expectations of his admirers. Calvin Hill, too, had a big day for Yale for he scored one touchdown and passed the fabled Albie Booth for most points (144) in a career.

As a test ol golf it is supreme but as a site lor a large gallery event. Hit private club and limited parking accommodations were not ideal. Whether the Louise Suggs Invitational can continue there or not. it is an event w Inch Dell ay Beach should perpetuate. And on the male sale of the gull news, the repot t that the PGA is interested in an Air Force coach as a golf commissibnet does not mean the PGA is trying to beat the APG to run tournaments on the moon. What the PGA really wants is a tour director to serve as a bullet to separate the boys from the men the playboys of the tour hum the men behind the desks in PGA administration This is the area of personality clashes which really triggered the player levolt. West Palm Reach's junior football program sponsored by the recreation department has reached a new peak of success, with five balanced teams and good volunteer coaches. Close observing parents like Dennis Cleary credit Beanie McCann for a great job of directing the league. And recrealion director Gordon Sprague doesn't want to spoil it by adding the pressure of a post-season game. He, too, feels it has been a great success, and he wants to keep it on even keel at that level.
