White's Play Against Iowa Team Tops Poll •y HUGH FttLERtON JR. A«M*i«ted Press flporte Writer Bob White, Ohio State's big, willing and abld fullback, turned in the most sensational one-game performance by any football play- cr of the 19&8 season when he led th* Buckeyes to a 88-28 victory over Iowa's Big Ten champions. That opinion was expressed by sports Writers and broadcasters answering The Associated Press post * season questionnaire. The margin was nearly 3 to 1 over any comparable feat although Notre Dame's George ten thrilled almost as many of the experts in the course bf the season. Of nearly 200 replies to the questionnaire, 26 listed White's one-man show against Iowa the most spectacular. In that game, White carried 33 times and gained 269 yards-just short of the Big fen one-game record. More important, be lugged it 11 times as m y **f>f>9 JfottJay Vlmt! •••••••••••* Austin Bakery 119 E. Brldg. . HE 3-6070 fudts ftnilfcft! A ysfds in 14 plays for the whwiteg touchdown in the final quarter. That game previously had been listed as the outstanding performance J?y one team or two teams in a game by the Voters. It was a duel between White, the runner,, and Randy Duncan, Iowa's superb passer. Duncan, *n- cident'ally, dretf two nominations for his sensational passing in the same game, which netted 249 yards on 22 completions. The 210- pound White raced 71 yards fofr Ohio's second touchdown and scored two more on short bucks. Rich Mayor, air-minded quarterback of the Air Force Academy, placed second in the voting with 9 ballots for his passing feats that brought a 33-29 Victory over Oklahoma State. Mayor completed 28 of 4$, nearly half of them in the final quarter. Izo, a second-string Notre Dame quarterback in the early part of the season, attracted 14 votes for 3 different passing feats. Six experts thought the most sensational performance was Izo's passing against Pittsburgh, when he com pleted 18 or 26 for 30 of 60. He also scored 2 touchdowns and passed for 2. Six others listed Izo's passing against Navy in his first game as starting quarterback. Two picked his passing against Purdue.

PRINZINGS Hwy. 218 North- Austin Iowa's Merz Injures Knee in Hard Drill PASADENA, Calif, (ft - Curt Merz, Iowa's All-America left end, reinjured his left knee during a hard scrimmage session here Monday, and Coach Forest Evashevski said Merz would be listed as a doubtful starter in the Rose Bowl game against California. Merz had hurt the knee originally in the Ohio State game, missed the Notre Dame encounter, and had been kept under wraps here until Monday for fear of re-injury. Merz was in pain as he was helped off the field. He had just started to throw a block when he apparently was knocked off balance and went down. Except for the injury to Merz, Evy said he was pleased with the Monday workout, which included both heavy duty drills and fumbles. Evashevski said the faulty ball handling and the bobbles were natural and not a source of worry. He said he hopes the Hawks won't reach a peak until a day or so before the game itself. He also said he hoped that Merz, a 219-pound junior from Springfield, N. J., will be all right for the New Year's Day classic and that the timing problem will be corrected in a few days. Working out Monday was Bob Hain, 225-pound junior from Davenport, who is in a guard slot. There were indications he would see plenty of action against the Golden Bears. "Hain is one of our bigger linemen," Evashevski said. "We are using some plays that do not require the guards to pull. And he is pretty dependalbe on straight- ahead stuff. "We are simply trying to strengthen our defense," Evy noted. The No. 1 backfield alignment continued to have John Nocera at fullback, and halfbacks Willie Fleming and Bob Jeter in quarter back Randy Duncan's unit. Working with quarterback Mitch Ogiego were Kevin Furlong and Ray Jauch at halfback and Don Horn in the fullback slot. Bill Bravel and John Brown also were prominent in the work out.
