The exhibition season is over at 1:30
p.m. today.
h Both Michigan and Ohio State
have dispensed with the formality of
defeating eight straight opponents, and
now meet today to find out just which
is the better team.
But as everyone who is still remotely
connected with civilization knows, there
is more than just the matter of dis-
covering the better team at stake in this
afternoon's contest. The victor will take
the Big Ten crown and get a bonus of?

With the outcome of a whole season
riding on the results of one game the

people will pack the Ohio State stadium

glued to radios across the Midwest.

lished themselves as the Big Ten favor-
ites. But their prime opponent was de-
cided on the 19th when the surprising
Wolverines defeated defending cham-
pion Indiana 27-22. At that point Mich-
igan proved they were for real.
Ohio State was expected to have a
fine season but the jury was out onr
Michigan following the disaster of the
past few years. The Wolverines have
come on strong, though, and proved that
they will give the Buckeyes one big run
for the money.
Certainly neither team underesti-
mates the other. Woody Hayes has been
worried enough about Michigan to re-
main incognito for a week. All questions
have been directed to Esco Sarkkinen,
OSU's chief scout. Sarkkinen has no il-
lusions as to what the Buckeyes will be
facing today and says that Michigan is
"the best all around team we've faced
this year."
The respect is not one sided, though.
Bump Elliott admits that Ohio State is

One other factor that is also working
in Michigan's favor is that they are
underdogs, a position they have not ex-

Even Sarkkinen admitted that it is bet-

dog. The Wolverines don't like to be
downgraded and the bookmakers have
only given them an added incentive.
Finally, there are also the many Ohio
players on the Michigan squad to be,
considered. Roughly one third of the
Michigan team hails from Ohio and
they'll be out to show Woody Hayes they

he had ordered the FBI to inves-

"illegal entry, illegalasearch and

said, the civil rights division of

whether or not to prosecute.

Seven 1pick Jai ter
over work project
184 participants in the welfare demonstrations and sit-
ins of Sept. 5 and 6 were sentenced yesterday by Municipal
Court Judge S. J. Elden. Seven of them chose jail terms over
work projects established by the court. One person was absent
from the sentencing for medical reasons and two- were
sentenced twice for trespassing on both days.
All of the sentences included fines of $15, a choice
between jail terms or county work projects of seven days in
length, 90 day probationary periods and payment of court
costs. The fines may be paid in three installments over the
90 day period.
