Minnesota Ready To Defend Title In Rose Bowl Jan. 2nd By CHARLES MOREY AP Sports Writer They've brought an old gag up o date in mid-west football circles this year. They insist that the scouts for he M i n n e sola team got their irospects for the line this way. 'hey visited high school campuses and asked for directions. If he prospect picked up his sports car to point he was offered scholarship. A trifle far out but not when you look at the line that helped Minnesota win the national cham- jionship, tie Iowa for the Big II) itle and gain a bid to the Rose Bowl game on Jan. 2nd. The Gophers will meet the University of Washington. It was the pounding line that lifted Minnesota to a record eigtv victories and one loss. A line thai put n subway rush against enemy passers and provided a stonewai for enemy ball carriers. Minnesota had such treffic confidence in its line that I started every game by daring the opposition lo move against it. M i n n e s o ta is coached by Murray Warmnth, hanged in effigy in ontrast with the more conser- rtitive defense. The halfbacks are BUI Munsey ind Dave Mullholland and the ullbnck is Roger Hagberg. Munsey is only a • sophomore mt ho is a swirling runner and a dandy defender. BUI is a 6pe cialist at p i c k ing ofl enemy aerials. Mullholland and Hagberg are hard runners. Other backs whose names >robably will turn up in the Rose 3owl lineups are Judge Dickson and Jim Rogers. One of the things that enabled Minnesota to stand up so well who 1959 Grid Champs Unpredictable; HS Baseball On The Way Up > and good wishes "I ir-"-rrr-;;--r.

Miller, Brownwood, Ol- bo >' to maKc fame a . nd fortune started. The many upsets and the low percentage of forecasting calls to mind the fact that high school football is just as uncertain as college. It's almost impossible to select th-2 college champions Because the material district title. In selecting the probable district winners the percentage wasn't so bad. In AAAA, eleven; for himself. So it is back on the coaching school platforrr. and there's even talk of an all- star game as is played in foot ball and basketball.

Nothing personal, men VVarmath likes to play hard nosed football and this time ne has the men to do it. The anchor man of the lino and probably the leading college forward of the year was an ex- sailor named Tom Brown. Where Tom went the seas got rough. This 240-pound guard was a knock- 'em-down Mocker on offense and a brick wall on defense. But he had plenty of help. Frank Brixius, a 260-pound tackle, provided a lot of beef in close- quarter situations. Bobby Lee Bell was a fast-improving sophomore at the other tackle berth. John Muivera took care of the other guard post and Greg Larison was the center. Dick Larson land Bob Deegan were the two | ends. under the rigors of Big 10 competition was the depth of the line. Warmath was able to keep constant pressure on up front. How much this will benefit the Gophers in the Rose B o w 1 is hard to say. If it is a hot day it will be important. When a team wins a national title it becomes a shining target for everybody it meets. Minnesota will be that for Washington on th'e 2nd of January. But on the other hand it will give the Gophers terrific team incentive to defend the championship. j, Unnesota . . of the 16 named came through, | fact . n '= v ^ r has shown a falI -°" the passer and two of the ,„ that spec j aUy were at rushing top the ...„..,„ in AAA there were nine of 18,1'" '"terest.

But even if baseball did interfere with football there would be no excuse to drop it— it has its place in the sports program.
