Surging Minnesotans Out To Regain Bros

wn Jug

Both Michigan and Minnesota
have gone a long way since the
Wolverines piled up a lopsided
49-0 victory over a hapless Gop-
her squad last year.
Unfortunately for Michigan, the
direction has been almost exclu-
sively downhill.
The Wolverines are currently
riding the rocky road of a four
game losing streak while Min-
nesota is sailing on the wings
of a 4-1 record this year. The
Gophers' most impressive triumph
to date came last Saturday when
they rolled over a stunned Mich-
igan State contingent 21-0. Just
the ;week before, the Spartans
pasted the Wolverines with a 34-
0 setback.
The big defference in the Gop-
hers this year is their defense.
Led by junior end Bob Stein, who
saw limited action as a sopho-
more because of injury, Minnesota
rates third in the nation with a
5.8 points - against average.
Pick Off Three
Against Michigan State last
Saturday, the spirited Gopher de-
fense went to work intercepting
three Spartan passes to spark the
Minnesota victory.
In the first four games, the de-
fense carried the Gophers almost

record with 257 yards against
Northwestern two years ago.
Wilson's passes were primarily
aimed in the directions of two re-
ceivers who have made Gopher
fans forget end Ken Last who
starred for Minnesota the previous
three seasons.
Speedy flankerback Hubie Byr-
ant caught one of Wilson's aerials
last week for a 33 yard touchdown
against the Spartans. The Gop-
hers scored their other two touch-
downs when Wilson threw passes
to junior end Chip Litten who
romped 19 and 26 yards for the
scores. The Litten and Byrant
tandem has scored six of Min-
nesota's nine touchdowns this sea-
Michigan has not been without
its stellar performances either.
While downcasted by the show-
ing of his team this year, Elliot
still was able to manage a smilej
when he talked about quarterback
Dennis Brown. "Brown did an
excellent job last week setting
two Big Ten records in the pro-
cess. You couldn't ask for more."

Perfect weather conditions brought forth one of the greatest
crowds that ever surged through the Ferry Field gates, but large
though it was it did not tax the capacity of the mammoth stands.
Assisted by their splendid band of seventy pieces the Minnesotans
who had followed their favorites out of the northland kept them-
selves very much in evidence and flung their taunts across the field
in lusty roars. It required the best efforts of "Sully" Sullivan, his
cohorts, and followers to outyell them.
"Bottles" Thomson was declared eligible to compete on the
eve of the combat, the Minnesota authorities having accepted
the ruling of the Michigan board. Lawton played so well, how-
ever, that Thomson was not needed.
The game started on time.
Two of the greatest players who ever wore the blue, Benbrook
and Magidsohn, went out of Michigan football in a blaze of glory.
The opportunities came to neither of them for the stunts that are
spectacular but they played finished football with the skill and
power that have made them famous.
"This celebration has the Fourth of July beaten to a frazzle,"
said one of the speakers at the mammoth bonfire last night.
From the time the undergraduates carried the gridiron heroes on'
their shoulders up State Street until long after midnight, Ann Arbor,
resounded with the noise of enthusiastic celebrators.
Over two thousand students joined in the triumphal march after
the game, a huge crowd taking part in a snake dance through the
downtown streets.
"Bill" Hurley took charge and introduced the first speaker,
Prof. Rich. He congratulated the student body on its uniform
good conduct as compared with that on the corresponding occa-
sion last year.
