Ask Coach Who Knows— Gophers Big and Tough CHICAGO (API-Want a rundown on the possible Big Ten Rose Bowl representative? Ask Michigan Coach Bump Elliott. He's been stung by all three. Included among Michigan's five losses this season are defeats at the hands of Indiana, Minnesota and Michigan Stale. The Wolverines this season don't play Purdue, the fourth team currently on the move for the Big Ten title. But the Boilermakers are ineligible for the Rose Bowl because of the no- repeat rule. Michigan lost In the final minutes to both Indiana, 27-20, and Minnesota last week, 20- IS. The Wolverines were crushed by Michigan State 34-0. "Indiana and Minnesota are two different teams," Elliott told the Chicago Football Writers via telephone Tuesday, "although both of our games were similar in that we lost to both the same way. "Indiana is a quick team with the wide open option," said Elliott. "They strike quickly and hurt you. "Minnesota Is awesome in size and brute strength. They can crush you and they have Meet Bob Luchtel I'm the new manager at Montgomery Ward. Let's get acquainted during our special tire sale. Phone 3513 Across the Street South of Court House Carroll Times Herald, Carroll, la. Wednesday, Nov. 1, 1967 had a lot of help with their forward passing." Undefeated Indiana is rolling towards what could be the greatest, year in Hoasier football history. The Hoosiers have a 6-0 record, are ranked seventh natiomally and are tied for the Big Ten lead with Purdue and Minnesota with 3-0 records. Michigan State, the defending Big Ten champion, is saddled with a 2-4 record for the season but is 2-1 in the conference and very much alive for the Pasadena trip during the holidays. "Both Indiana and Minnesota are good contenders and will be in the running all the way," said Elliott. "Michigan State? That's another story. "The day w e played them the roof fell in," continued Elliott. "It's difficult to compare. The day we played them I thought they were the best team we'd played all season. Evidently they're not." Little is expected to unfold in the Big Ten race this week since the four contenders play second division teams and all are heavily favored to win. However, this is the week where a slip could be disastrous. I ELKS STAG MENU Thursday November 2 Bar-B-Qu* Ribs and Fried Chicken head the menu for tonight. Meet your friends at the Elks Club. Minnesota goes to Iowa as a 12-point favorite. Michigan State is at home and rates 14 points over Ohio State. Purdue is at Illinois and a 13-point favorite while Indiana is a 14-point favorite against Wisconsin at Bloomington where Coach Johnny Pont says the fans are pinching themselves to see if it's all true." Michigan, meanwhile, Is at home and hopes to crack a five- game losing streak at the expense of Northwestern which will be a one touchdown underdog. K-Statc Flanker Threatens Pass Catching Records By The Associated Press Dave Jones of Kansas State, a flanker with all the moves and great hands, seems certain to smash all the career pass receiving records in Big Eight football. Jones heads into Saturday's big game at Kansas with 67 catches for 1,090 yards in 16 collegiate games. He's a junior with 14 games left, so the career records seem in easy reach. The yardage mark is 1,411 by Jim Doran of Iowa State in 1948-49-50. Eppie Barney oi Iowa State set the career mark of 97 catches in 1964-65-66. As a 175-pound high school halfback, Jones was recommended to Kansas by his prep coach, Bill Schaake, a Kansas graduate. But the Jayhawk staf 1 headed by Jack Mitchell decided Jones was too small and too slow to be a Big Eight halfback. K-State's El Dissinger signed him and Doug Weaver, then head coach, made him a receiver. /WoNTGOMCRY WARD •fl WARD3 • «| Riverside POWER-GRIP 7.75/7.50-14 Twbeless Whitewall EACH IN PAIRS Plui 2.21 Federal Tax tocfc • Extra-deep tread to give maximum "go- power" in mud or snow • Brings you through the roughest, toughest road conditions • Skid resistors built into the tread; quicker, safer stops • Full 4-ply rugged nyion cord body to taka hard winter driving • Comfortable driving on clear roads with no objectionable road noise, even on dry pavement • Lifetime quality and road hazard guarantee • Guaranteed to wear 36 months USE YOUR WARDS CHARG-ALL NO MONEY DOWN WARDS Riverside PASSENGER TIRE 4-WAY GUARANTEE I. t)F£TIME QUALITY GUARANTEE on Ihf auilitv ol nuloriil ind wtxkminihip (or lh« lite ol the original tread.

Quarterback Ed Podolak, who personally has been responsible for more than two- thirds of the Hawkeyes' net yardage this season, will be benched because of a rib injury, Coach Ray Nagel said Tuesday. Podolak had been bothered for some time by "sore ribs" and aggravated the condition in a warmup drill Monday, said Nagel. He said the team physician recommended the slim junior signal caller be held out of the game. Mike Cilek, who has played only in the closing seconds of three games, wil be the replacement. The junior from Iowa City hasn't been impressive in his brief appearances. Cilek lost 16 yards on his three rushing attempts, and didn't connect on three passing tries. Nonetheless, Nagel isn't painting a picture of complete doom. "I still think we'll play a good game," he said. "After all, we were the underdogs with Podolak. His rib injury doesn't improve our chances, but we'll still give them a game." He said Cilek "has been looking better in practice, and I'm sure he'll do a good job for. us Saturday. He is an adequate runner and a good -passer. "He hurt his thumb early in the season and this slowed him down for a while. However, he's in good shape now." Jim Crouse, a sophomore from Audubon, will be Click's backup man. Crouse worked out at quarterback during spring drills, but this fall has been used strictly as a kickoff man. Meanwhile, Podolak's performance against Purdue last weekend vaulted him into the No. 9 spot in the country in total offense. Ed picked up 256 yards against the Boilermakers to up his season's total to 1,209, according to NCAA statistics released Wednesday. Podolak was 12th a week ago.

FARMERS ELEVATOR MUTUAL INSURANCE COMPANY HOME OFFICE: DES MOINES,IOWA FEMtC Harlan Drops From Top 10; Dowling Holds Third Place By The Associated Press It was the same old story Wednesday, as Waterloo East and three Cedar Rapids schools continued their domination of the weekly Associated Press Iowa high school football poll. For the seventh straight week, East rested atop the poll, drawing 19 of the 25 first- place votes and 242 points in the balloting by state sports writers and sportscasters. t Cedar Rapids Washington again was second, with five top votes and 228 points, while two of its city rivals were among the top five teams—No. 4 Jefferson and No. 5 Regis. DAS Moines Dowling was third for the second straight week. Rounding out the top ten in order were Fairfield, Shenandoah, Burlington, Sioux City Heelan and newcomer Webster City. Unbeaten Harlan, ranked eighth a week ago, missed making the elite ten by just a few votes after a 12-12 tie with Perry last weekend. Waterloo East, which hasn't tasted defeat for 18 games, banished Cedar Falls 31-0 last week for its seventh in a row this season. Washington also made its mark 7-0 with a 33-6 clipping of Clinton. Dowling, getting stronger as the season goes on, whipped Des Moines Roosevelt 33-0 to also claim a 7-0 record. Cedar Rapids Jefferson, with a loss to Washington the only blemish on its record, breezed past Cedar Rapids Kennedy 276 to move up one spot this week. Regis, 7-0, fell one place after having a tough time beating Iowa City Regina 14-0. Fairfield's ranking remained unchanged after a 27-0 coast past Mount Pleasant, but Shenandoah jumped two places on the strength of a convincing 3214 conquest of Atlantic. Burlington also moved up a couple of places by blasting Muscatine 39-0. A season's opening 25-0 loss to Waterloo East is Burlington's lone setback in seven games. Sioux City Heelan fell from seventh to ninth after losing to O'Gorman of Sioux Falls, S.D. Big Tackle Top Player At Humboldt (Another in a series of stories on some of Iowa's top high school football players, written for The Associated Press by sports writers of AF-member newspapers.) By DAVE STOKDALE (Fort Dodge Messenger) HUMBOLDT (AP) - In a game where backs get most of the publicity, Humboldt's tackle -linebacker Geoff Mickelson has been getting his share of the headlines. The big tackle ranks as one of Northwest Iowa's outstanding interior linemen. In fact Mickelson, a 6-0, 215 pound senior, scored 11 points in one game and hauled his team from a 7-0 halftime deficit to a 17-7 victory. Eagle Grove, a North Central Conference foe, led the Wildcats at halftime but Mickelson blocked a punt, carried the ball in for a score in the third period, booted two extra points and mopped up with a 27-yard field goal. ''He's been making the big plays for us for the past two years," Humboldt Coach Leo McElrath said. "He opens the big holes for our .backs in the line and stops the opponent in crucial situations." Mickelson, a good student who ranks in the upper third of his class, came up to the varsity as^ a junior and has started every game since. His defensive play a year ago was a big key to Humboldt's conference championship year. "Last year he was very good defensively but just an average blocker. He has improved his blocking 100 per cent this year and is now an outstanding offensive left tackle," McElrath said. Mickelson played at 190 pounds in 1966 but due to a rigorous weight lifting program he now tips the scales at 215 pounds. "Weights have been a big key to Geoff's success," McElrath said. "He just overpowers the runners, he's so strong, and he still has amazing speed and agility." Geoff runs the 100 in 11.2. He's a four sport star too. Last spring in track he put the shot over 52 feet and sailed the discus around 140 feet. In the summer Mickelson has been a Humboldt baseball starter as a catcher for the past two years. To show his versatility, Mickelson decided to try out for the wrestling team last winter at 180 pounds. He responded with an 18-3 varsity record and nearly made it to the state meet. On Humboldt's 6-0-1 loop champions last fall, Mickelson averaged 18 tackles per game and he made 24 tackles in Humboldt's 13-12 loss to Algona this season. "Geoff is a real coachable kid," McElrath commented, "He is our team leader by example and has tremendous instinct as to where the play is going." Humboldt uses a 5-3 defensive alignment most of the time which means opposing guards often get an opportunity to double team block on him. "He is good at fighting off blockers and he stops most offensive running attacks up the middle," the coach said. Mickelson wants to play major college football and has received a number of scholarship offers. Nobis Named Top Defensive Player ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) — Hulking linebacker Tommy Nobis is doing "a lot more thinking" on the field this year, and it's beginning to pay off for him and the Atlanta Falcons. The payoff for the Falcons was their first victory of the season last Sunday, 21-20 over Minnesota. For Nobis, the personal dividends included his selection as The Associated Press Defensive Player of the Week in the National Football League. The 238-pound Texan nabbed two Viking passes for interceptions, setting up one touchdown and scoring another. The red-haired, freckle-faced Nobis, quick despite his bullish build but with no illusions of great speed, picked off a pass by Joe Kapp of the Vikings in the second quarter and returned it to the Vikings' 23. Four plays later, Randy Johnson passed to Tommy McDonald for a touchdown. In the final quarter, Minnesota's Ron VanderKelen threw hurriedly, and the ball hit Karl Rubke's helmet, bouncing about 30 feet in the air. Paul Flatley of the Vikings and Nobis clawed at the ball, but both fell with Nobis claiming the ball while flat on his back. Hauling himself up rapidly, he rambled 41 yards, taking one defender with him into the end zone for what proved to be the winning touchdown. It was only his third pass interception as a pro and his first touchdown sine* he played quarterback as a sophomore in high school. His hectic dash to the goal brought the usual kidding. "That field sure was long," said the sign a teammate taped on his locker. "You were so slow they had started the instant replay on television before you scored," his father, Tommy Sr., quipped. "I think this guy is the greatest middle linebacker in football," Falcons Coach Norb Hecker said. "His development has exceeded our wildest dreams."

McCormick Earns Top Mound Title MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., (AP)— Lefty Mike McCormick, baseball's Comeback-Player of of the Year, is the happy winner of the Cy Young Award as the National League's outstanding pitcher of 1967. "I think this is the realization of every pitcher's dream," Mike exclaimed at his home in Mountain View, some 40 miles south of Candlestick Park, where he performs his heroics for the San Francisco Giants. "It certainly is the cake-icing of my playing year. "In all honesty, my family and I are very elated. "It's the highest award a pitcher can get. There's not much more I can say." The award was voted Tuesday by the Baseball Writers Association of America, and McCormick got 18 of the 20 votes cast by the writers — two from each league city. Fergus Jenkins of the Chicago Cubs and Jim Bunning of the Philadelphia Phillies got one vote each. At the age of 29, and once considered washed up, he pitched 14 complete games, worked 262 innings, and had an earned-run average of 2.85.
