Wolverines Meet Illini Toa in Ke ridiro



'M' Eleven Seeks Victory To Escape
Worst Finish in Oosterbaan Tenure



Crippled Illinois Fights for First Division Finish

(Continued from Page 1)
But pride alone is enough to
make a Michigan-Illinois game a
real tough affair.
Riding the crest of the longest
continuous home-and-home series
in the Big Ten, it is hard to re-
member an Illini-Wolverine con-
test that wasn't either surprising
or exciting, if not both.
This year there will be no sur-
prise, since the teams are ranked
about even, and an upset is ruled'
out. However, the excitement
should be present this afternoon.
Oosterbaan stated yesterday
that his squad is in good shape.;
"Walt Johnson was the only play-
er injured last Saturday," the 'M'
mentor said, "and he will. be ableI

to start. George Genyk and Don
Deskins are nursing slight ail-
ments, but will be in there battling
as usual.
"We know that we will be in
for a tough contest," Oosterbaan
continued. "Illinois has beaten
Michigan State handily, and they
put up a tough battle against Ohio
State. They have a fine line, and
Ray Eliot always comes up with
a fine backfield."
Backfield Troubles
However, this year's Illini edi-
tion apparently does have back-
field problems. A series of in-
juries - finally attacking a Mich-
igan opponent instead of the 'M'
men themselves - has cut down
the first three Illinois right half-

backs, and the starting quarter-
back, Bob Hickey.
L. T. Bonner, the regular at the
Illini right half post, his under-
study Dave McDade, and Hickey
weren't able to make the trip to
Ann Arbor.
Eliot, the perennially pessimis-
tic Illinois coach, is starting De-
justice Coleman at right halfback
and John Easterbrook at quarter-
back. As before every game every
year, Eliot claims that he hasn't
got a chance.
Other Starters
The other Illini backfield start-
ers will be Marshall Starks, a'
sophomore sensation, at left half
and fullbackeBill Brown, who has
proved to be a leading ground-
gainer for the Champaign team.
It is interesting to note that
every year some new Illinois back
hits the headlines against Mich-
igan. Such sensational players as
Buddy Young, J. C. Caroline, Abe
Woodson, Harry Jefferson, Bobby
Mitchell, and last year Bonner,
have made their first splash
against the Wolverines.
Another Star?
Who will it be today? Maybe
no one, but the fact that Michi-
gan is weak defensively and the
backfield is slow points to the
chance for another speedy Illini
to hit stardom.
Of course, if the Illini are as
weakened in the backfield as Eliot
reports, then maybe it will be
Michigan's day. Oosterbaan's
backfield, paced by Bob Ptacek's
passing and Darrell Harper's run-
ning, could be dangerous if the
line can match Illinois.

Illinois will be fighting for its
pride and hopes of finishing in the
first division as Coach Ray Eliot's
crippled charges invade Ann Ar-
bor today.
Last week, preceding Illinois'
crushing 31-8 defeat at the hands
of Purdue, a slight touch of Rose
Bowl fever spread through the
campus and the squad itself after
its three fine Big Ten showings.
The Illini were edged 19-13 by

At Lafayette, however, Illinois
recevied a rude awakening. The

and mentally as well. Eliot's ma-

Iowa Could Gain Title Today

--Daily-Peter Anderson
MICHIGAN QUARTERBACK-Bob Ptacek, the Wolverines' rugged
quarterback, poised to pass against Iowa last week. A Hawkeye
lineman (behind Ptacek ) is set to spill the Michigan signal-caller
for a loss, as often happened in the Iowa contest. Today's Illinois
game may depend on Ptacek's passing arm, and the strength of the
Michigan blocking to protect him.

Spirit.... Received
MICHIGAN STUDENTS proved last night that they can have spirit
An estimated crowd of almost 3,000 students ended up at Ferry
Field, where they cheered louder than any group of 'M' students-
including the crowds at games-have cheered in many years. "It was
the finest turnout I have ever seen at such a function here," master
of ceremonies Newt Loken stated."It was really a tremendous crowd."'
The stpdents began to assemble in front of the Michigan Union,
and after the football team appeared on the steps they began to move
toward the athletic plant. The cheerleaders led the group, and the
Marching Band formed the center of the parade down State Street.
All of the groups involved lived up to expectations, and the organiza-
tion of the pep rally obviously spelled the difference between the
success of this attempt, and the former failure of the one before the
-Michigan State game.
This time there was publicity, and there was planning. The people
congregated as expected, and the cheerleaders, the team and the band
were there. At the field there were many speakers-Loken, NBC Tele-
vision broadcaster Mel Allen, football coaches Jack Blott and Bob
Hollway, captain John Herrnstein and acting co - captains Gary
Prahst and Bob Ptacek.
Product of Cooperation ...
THE RALLY WAS obviously the product of cooperation. The cheer-
leaders did a fine job, and a job they feel well payed for. "It was
a great turnout," cheerleading co-captain Jim Hayslett said. "We are
really pleased," stated Dick Kimball, the other co-captain of the squad,
"it was a far bigger crowd than we ever expected. Really a nice turn-
The band also did its part well. They provided the background for
the march to the field, and played a medley of numbers once there.
If there was ever any trace of "misguided" spirit in the group, it
wasn't there last night. At this time I would like to offer my apologies
to band director William D. Revelli and all of the members of the band
who DIDNT take part in any M-E-R-C-Y cheers at the Northwestern
game. It was not the entire group, but only certain members who
participated in such a cheer, and only until Revelli was able to collar
Dr. Revelli points out that the Michigan band has always stood
behind the team and the coaches. "I feel that our group has the best
spirit on campus," he said. This is a fact that is certainly hard to
dispute, since no single body except the cheerleaders themselves adds
more to the general campus spirit.

With a little bit of luck and a
victory over cellar dwelling Min-
nesota today, Iowa's unbeaten and
once-tied Hawkeyes could clinch
their second Big Ten title in the
past three years and win a return
trip to Pasadena.
An added push in the right
direction for the Hawkeyes would
be an Ohio State victory over
Purdue and a Wisconsin win over

In the Spotlight .
IT IS, THEN, OBVIOUSLY a shame that any shadow is cast upon
such a group. However. the fact remains that a few members of the
band did participate in a cheer that was in bad taste. It is perhaps a
smaller example of the parley card scandal currently in vogue at
Michigan. A small group of students, after getting caught for a small
part in a gambling ring, have blackened the reputation of the institu-
tion on a national level. Thus, a small group of bandsmen take part
in something that hurts the entire group's reputation.
It is obvious that b th of these incidents should be forgotten.
Both groups, the University and the band, continue to function as
highly reputible organizations.
This brings up the question again of the worthwhileness of spirit.
Why should a group like the band be subected to circumstances
