If ever the second game of a
season was a crucial one, it is for
the Michigan Wolverines as they
host Army today.
Starting with the 1:30 kickoff,
the Wolverines will be trying to
turn the complexion of this season
onto a more successful note. They
weren't supposed to win many
games this season and one of those
went by the boards last Saturday.
A loss to Army would make a dis-
mal season almost before it has
Army, meanwhile, under new
Coach Paul Dietzel, is shooting to
uphold the national ranking it
gained with successive victories
over Wake Forest and Syracuse.
New Lineup
Wolverine Coach Bump Elliott
has drastically changed his lineup
for the Cadets. Right end Bill
Laskey, tackle Tom Keating, guard
Dave Kurtz, left half Jack Stro-
bel and fullback Wayne Sparkman
have all moved into the starting
lineup. They replace Jim Ward,
injured John Houtman, John Mar-
cum, Harvey Chapman, and Bill

Halfback Dave Raimey is ready
to play despite the presence of a
heavily taped shoulder, and soph-
omore fullback Mel Anthony may
finally see some action. Anthony
was first string fullback in the
spring and early fall before sprain-
ing an ankle.
Dietzel brings to the midwest
the three unit system which
brought him national fame at Lou-
isiana State. His Regular, Go, and'
Chinese Bandit units will be rec-
ognizable by the coloring of the
socks, patcheson the jerseys and
by the way the Cadet corps shouts
as each team goes in.
Army had only two units last
year, but Dietzel spread out his
forces in fall practice( he chooses
the personnel for the teams at that
time and they stay that way all
season) added the socks and stir-
red up the Cadets behind the
teams and now all three play like
seasoned units.

Elliott says he will try to use
three units hmiself, but will not
try purposely to match units with
Dietzel. Dietzel himself warns that
this is unwise. "Some coaches fig-
ure the Bandits are our third team
and try to get their best units
against them, but it doesn't work
because before long the Bandits
are better on defense than the
A Little Influence
Dietzel also admits to "having
something to do with" the red
coolie hats the Cadets wear when
the Chinese Bandits are on the
field, but adds that the rest of the
paraphernalia is the Cadets' own
idea. "They have flags for each
team and different cheers prepar-
ed," he said. "I started it but
they've taken it out of my hands.
They've really gotten behind the

my has another incentive, and that
is to avenge last year's 38-8 defeat
at the hands of the Wolverines.
"A lot of those guys are back
who played in that slaughter,"
Dietzel said.
Despite all the momentumArmy
has, plus the ranking, those who
are supposed to know have placed
Michigan anywhere from a six to
eight point favorite. "It was only
three when we left New York,"
Dietzel said. "It seems to go up a
little the further west we go."

CLEVELAND (P)-Ernie Davis
of the Cleveland Browns, the na-
tion's top collegiate football play-
er of 1961, has leukemia. But it
is in a "perfect state of remis-
sion," the club said yesterday, and
he is physically able to start
workouts with the team.
Davis has been undergoing
treatment and traditional forms
of medication since Aug. 1, when
the deadly disease ifrst was diag-
nosed. His condition had been de-
scribed publicly as a blood dis-

leukemia," said Dr. Austin S.

halfback from Syracuse, added in
a statement:,

"He has responded extremely
well to therapy and medication.
At the present time his blood find-

Davis will start a conditioning
program Monday under the super-
vision of Dr. Victor Ippolito, team
physician of the National Foot-
ball League club. "The most im-
portant thing is to get his legs
in shape," said Dr. Ippolito. "As

he can work into regular practice
with the team ... Ernie is a mar-
velous boy and has always taken

Doctors said the complete re-

Remission means the disease is

Will Davis be sidelined again?
"We just don't know," said Mo-
dell. "We'll have to watch him
carefully, of course. This is a
disease that is not fully defined.
Doctors are still learning much
about it all the time."

"I knew something seriously was
wrong," said Davis, the first Negro
ever to win the Heisman Trophy,
"It was a relief to him that it
was clearly defined," said Modell.
"All he wants to do now is play
football for the Browns and help

The diagnosis was first made in
Evanston, Ill., after Davis was hos-

the College All-Stars for the game
in Chicago with the champion
Green Bay Packers.
The finding of leukemia was
confirmed by five institutions and
more than a dozen doctors.

Teams Face Showdown


Three teams ranked in the top
ten by the major wire services
will put their high positions on
the line today.
Penn State, Georgia Tech and
Mississippi, ranked fourth, fifth
and seventh respectively, all face
tough opponents.
Penn State at Rice is the pre-
mier inter-sectional game of the
week. Rice, a sophomore dominat-
ed team, knocked LSU from among
the nationally ranked teams last
week as they played the Tigers
from Baton Rouge to a 6-6 stand-
Coming to Life
Led by quarterback Walt Mc-
Reynolds, a last minute stand-in
who completed 13 of 23 passes for
179 yards last week, the Owls seem
to be jelling fast.
Meanwhile, Penn State had
trouble in getting past the Air
Force Academy last Saturday scor-
ing thirteen points in the last
half to defeat the Falcons 20-6.
Georgia Tech meets Louisiana
State in a nationally televised
game from Atlanta. The Tigers
will be fighting to regain their
fifth national ranking after get-
ting knocked off by Rice last week.
Beefy Line
Tech's strength lies in its line
which averages 222 lbs. from end
to end. Led by guards Rufus
Guthrie and Dave Watson the
Engineers have held their oppon-
ents to an average of 79 yards
rushing per game.
Mississippi will encounter Hous-
ton at Jackson, Miss., today in a
game in which the interest isn't
purely on the players.
Houston has been the surprise
team of the football season. The
Cougars upset perennially strong
Baylor and Texas A&M in their
first two outings. Coached by Bill
Yeoman, one of Duffy Daugherty's
multitudinous offspring, Houston

stands head and shoulders above
their fellow Texas independents.
Quick Start
Mississippi, with 23 returning
lettermen led by All-American
tackle Jim Dunaway, had no
trouble in getting past their first
two opponents Memphis State and
