Illinois, Indiana, Ohio State Threaten'M';
Two Victories Needed To Square Record
By AL JONES

The worst is past.
But there's more to come.
That is the state of affairs that
presently plagues Michigan foot-
ball coach Bennie Oosterbaan and
his charges, as they prepare for the
next Big Ten encounter with Illi-
nois here Saturday.
The team can be glad that they
won't have to meet a team as
tough as Iowa again. The Wolver-
ines put up a stern challenge
against the Hawkeyes for three
quarters. but finally had to give in
to speed and power that was
simply out of their class.
"A Good Game"
Actually, it's comforting to
know that his team can play the
Big Ten leaders even for as long
as they did. "The boys played a
great game," the "M" mentor said
in the locker room afterwards.
Michigan did play its best game
of the season. When the breaks
came, the Wolverines were able to
take advantage and keep them-
selves in the game. The Michigan
defense, except for the long runs
by the speedy Iowa backs, held
well the majority of the game.
With Iowa in the background,
Oosterbaan hopes that better
things are to come. There are three
games left, and if Michigan is to
equal its Big Ten record of last
year it must win two of them.
Last season the Wolverines had
a 3-3-1 Conference mark, and a
5-3-1 overall record. It will take
three victories-over Illinois, Indi-
ana and Ohio State-to match the
By comparative scores all three
of these teams are superior to
Michigan. Illinois, the first target
for the "M" men, beat Michigan
State 16-0, while Michigan was
proud of a 12-12 tie.
Indiana, the former doormat of
the Conference, took a short step
out of the cellar to eighth place
last weekend by beating Minne-
sota, 6-0. This was supposed to be
the battle of the "have-nots," but
remember that Michigan beat the
Gophers by only one point.
Ohio State, once the lofty power
of the Big Ten, has taken a few
steps down in the form of a tieE
with Wisconsin and a 21-0 loss to
Northwestern. However, the Wild-
cats beat Michigan by a 31-point
Of course, comparative scores
mean nothing, especially in the Big
Ten. It is certainly a comforting
thought to know that none of
these three are as tough as North-
western and Iowa. The first two
rest, along with Michigan, in the
Conference second division.
Illinois could quite possibly give
Michigan the most trouble. The
Wolverines' chief problem has been
defense of fast backs and big ends.
The Illini boast both of these.
L. T. Bonner, remembered for
his large part in last year's Illini
victory over Michigan, is back
along with fullback Bill Brown
and sophomore speedster Marshall
Starks. Leading this backfield trio
is junior signal-caller Bob Hickey,
who has had a great success throw-
ing to end Rich Kreitling.
If Oosterbaan's charges don't
learn more defense quickly, the
Illini could put on a show similar
to either Northwestern or Iowa.
Scoring three goals in the first
and three in the second periods,
the Wolverine boosters dominated
the entire Wesleyan game. Michi-
gan fullback Hans Van Deboven
Camp stood out in the defensive
lineup as he time and again broke
Wesleyan's offensive patterns.
Wesleyan couldn't contain the
fine teamwork exhibited by the
Wolverine forward line. Filiozola
Rubens and Kweku Mensah shared
scoring honors with two goals
apiece. Amilcar Vianna and cap-
tain Mircea Oprea accounted for
the other two Wolverine tallies.
Kenyon, engaging the Wolver-
ines on Sunday, enjoyed no better
an afternoon. Oprea, the Wolver-
ines' versatile right halfback,
directed offensive play while scor-
ing three goals himself.
However, a damper was put on
the weekend's performance when
the club learned the University
Board of Managers had refused its
petition for varsity status.
Next week the Wolverines travel
to Athens, Ohio to meet Ohio Uni-
versity, then will meet the Univer-
sity of Toronto Nov. 23 to climax
International Week. ,
Those interested in joining the
team are asked to contact Mircea
Oprea at 3-7655. Practices are held
Tuesday afternoon at 4 at Wines
A LOST CAUSE-Michigan's bench shows utter dejection near the
end of the Iowa contest last Saturday. The Wolverines had fought
bitterly to keep themselves in the game for three periods, only to
get swamped in the final quarter, 37-14. ,In the foreground are
