Michigan Picked Over Wildcats
By Prominent Sports Writers

Backfield Men Who Will Carry Wildcat Attack Today \ .. ITed Husing Of

Bethurum, Beukema, And
Oliver Among Predictors
Who Favor Wolverines
HARVEY T. WOODRUFF
(Chicago Tribune Sports Columnist)
Michigan's characteristic balance
in all departments of offense and de-
fense together with its eleven pound
average weight advantage in the line
should give a margin, on form, of at
least one touchdown. The question
mark of the game is Capt. Rentner
of Northwestern, the best running
back in the Conference through a
broken field.
MERLE OLIVER
(Associated Press)
Michigan will win from force of
habit, also because Harry Kipke is a
great teacher of football, and has
the eleven ready to take a shot at
the Wildcats. The score will depend
on the breaks of the game and the
weather, but any sort of victory
should satisfy.' The Michigan team
has been handled carefully and
should be in form.
C. H. BEUKEMA
(Detroit Free Press, Chicago Tribune,
United Press)
To predict with some certainty the
outcome of a game, the conservative
observer must begin his statement
with an "if," use the same word two
or three times more, then finish up
with "perhaps." Such an observa-
tion might be made concerning the
Michigan-Northwestern contest.
Having watched the Michigan team
in every practice session since Sept.
15 and in the game a week ago, I am
inclined to believe that the 26 to 0
win over Michigan State was due at
least as much to thefact that Crow-
ley's team was down as to Michigan's
being on its toes. To carry the
thought farther I believe the morale
of Kipke's team will have to be as
good against Northwestern as it was
a" week ago and its attack and de-
fense as much stronger as a week
more of practice can make them. It
is possible, of course, that Northwest-
ern is over-rated, is living on the
reputation it built up in 1930 and
1931, but that is more of a possibility
than probability.
To make use of the remainder of
the permitted number of "if's" and
assuming that weather conditions
will be suited to both teams, my
guess is-with both teams on their
toes, Michigan will win by one touch-
down and Northwestern will score.
The score, I would say, will be Mich-
igan 13; Northwestern 7. If either
team is down, the other will win.
JOHN BETHURUM
(Flint Daily Journal)
Michigan, with an experienced line,
through which Michigan State could
make only one first down by rushing,
and a strong running attack coupled
with a great aerial game, should hold
the mighty Wildcats on even terms,
at least. This is recognized as the
biggest game in the country today,
yet normal predictions will probably
be upset. Anything can happen.
Either team may win by a over-
whelming score, depending upon
which one gets the jump on the
other. On the other hand they can
play to a scoreless tie with defensive
football. The latter might easily
happen as both teams have tremend-
ous respect for the other. Most out-
state critics favor the Wildcats be-
cause of their strong backfield. It is
recognized as one of the best in the
land. But this backfield will not get
started unless their blocking and line
play is superior to that of Michigan's.
The team that wins will have the
best line on the field today, not nec-
essarily the best backfield. However,
Regeczi must keep those punts away
from the great Rentner if the Wol-
verines are to win, as Pug in an
open field is six points. Michigan will

have to play better ball than it did
against State, while likewise, North-
western will be forced to the limit.
It will be a great game, one of the
best of the season. I think it is
MICHIGAN by a close score.
Kin To See Stars In
Action For First Time
Charles Bernard, Michigan's great
center, will play today against the
Northwestern Wildcats and also per-
form on the gridiron before his par-
ents for the first time. Although
Chuck has played seven years of
football, four for Benton Harbor
High School, and this is his third
year at Michigan, his parents have
yet to see him play.
Francis Wistert 'has the same sit-
uation arising today. His two sisters
are coming to the game and they
have never previously seen the migh-
ty tackle in action.

Purdue Eleven
To Clash With
Badgers Today
Lafayette To Celebrate
Homecoming; Harriers I
To Face Wabash
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Oct. 7.-(Spe-
cial)-Homecoming - P u r d u e vs.
Wisconsin-a special celebration in
honor of 'the members of the 1892
championship team-and a gala
crowd--all will be combined here
Saturday when the Boilermakers
meet a powerful Badger eleven, re-
juvenated by Doc Spears, in an ef-
fort to secure revenge for last year's
21 to 14 defeat, which provided the
most stunning upset of the Big Ten
season and put the only blot on Pur-
due's 1931 record. In connection with
Homecoming and the game, special
ceremonies will be held in celebra-
tion of the fortieth anniversary of
Purdue's first football championship,
with at least ten members of the
1892 squad present in person to take
part in the celebration.
Looking at the game from the
straight football aspect, it should
provide one of the feature battles
of the season, for Wisconsin demon-
strated its power in its two early en-
counters, while the colorful Boiler-
maker crew will unleash the full
power of its versatile attack in an ef-
fort to wipe out the sting of last
year's defeat and advance in the Big
Ten standing.
Renews Series
The coming game renews a series
that has produced consistently spec-
tacular football for the past seven
years, and if the present rating of
the two elevens and the past history
of the series means anything an-
other "up and down" game is in store.
In the past seven years, neither
eleven has been able to win by the
margin of more than one touchdown
and two of the games have resulted
in ties. Both of the tie games came
in Homecoming engagements here,
a 0 to 0 tie in 1926 and the spectacu-
lar 19 to 19 draw of 1928. The last
Homecoming with the Badgers, here
in 1930, found Purdue eking out a 7
to 6 victory.
While the football game will be the
piece de resistance of the day's ath-
letic program, the morning will find
Coach Orval Martin's cross-country
squad facing its first competition of
the season when it meets Wabash in
a duel meet.
Bawkeyes Travel
To Wisconsin For
'Conference Battle
IOWA CITY, Oct. 7.-(Special)-
Moving to Madison, equipped with a
speedy attack, but a defense which
is yet untested, is the process begun
Thursday afternoon by the Univer-
sity of Iowa's 33-man football squad.
Three years have passed since
Hawkeyes went to Wisconsin for a
football game, and Captain Marcus
Magnussen is the only player who
remembers the 14 to 0 Iowa victory
in the last game.
Big Fullback Returns
As the team went through its final
drill on Iowa soil this week, it ap-
peared that Marvin Kuhn, whose
driving work at fullback was a bright
spot in September practices, would
return to his old job.
Kuhn, the Charles City sophomore
whose 190 pounds make him the
heaviest Iowa back, has almost for-
gotten his bad ankle. In reserve,
ready for fast work, will be Bill Ash,
a sophomore who broke through for
a 57-yard run for touchdown against

Bradley Tech.
Typical Dr. Spears gloom stories,
filtering out of Madison, have failed
to throw the Hawkeyes off guard.
Coach Ossie Solem and the players
know that Wisconsin will have a
heavy and experienced team,

AL kAWAL
- Qu4/27-RR44C!-F
These are the men the Wolverines must stop if they are to beat Northwestern today. They are, from left
to right, Al Kawal, quarterback, Capt. Pug Rentner, triple-threat half back, Jakie Sullivan, the other half,
and Ollie Olson, the line-cracking fullback.

Important Grid
Contests Start
In East Today
Princeton, Columbia Tilt
And Dartmouth Game
To Headline Card
Several important g r i d contests
feature the schedule for the East
this afternoon, although most of the
elevens of larger universities are still
taking on relatively small opponents
in preparation for traditional rivals
later in the season.
Outstanding on the card is Prince-
ton's game with Columbia, which will
be the feature sports event of New
York City today. The Tigers will
invade the Lion stronghold. There
exists a considerable division of opin-
ion among Eastern experts concern-
ing the outcome of the game, al-
though Columbia is accorded by most
a slight edge. The Lions -swamped
Lehigh last Saturday, while Prince-
ton outplayed Amherst decisively to
win.
First Crisler Test
That contest will throw important
light on the Tiger-Wolverine contest
further along in the season, and it
marks the first important test of the
Crisler regime at the New Jersey in-
stitution, as well as the first grid
contest between the two universities
in 27 years.
In the important intersectional
game of the day, Chicago journeys
to New Haven where they will meet
a Yale eleven stung by a humiliating
scoreless tie with Bates last Satur-
day. The Maroons are reputed to be
greatly improved over last season,
when the Bulldogs crashed over a
margin of three touchdowns. Yale's
chances hinge largely on the ability
of Bob Lassiter, injured star half-
back, to play in the contest. It was
Fraternity Champions
Defend First Of Titles
Alpha Kappa Lambda, all-year in-
terfraternity champions for 1931-32,
will take the field in defense of their
first title, speedball, when the action
starts Wednesday, Oct. 12.

Fischer Shoots 67
Breaking Hagen's
University Record
Johnny Fischer, Michigan's fore-
most golfer, added to his string.of
successes yesterday when he smash-
ed Walter Hagen's record for 18 holes
over the University course. Fischer's
record-breaking round, made in the
quarter finals of the University tour-
nament was a 67. He shot a 33 on
the in round with a total of one more
stroke going out.
The record which was previously
held by the well-known professional
Hagen, was made during his match
here last spring. Fischer, by sur-
passing the standing mark, estab-
lished himself definitely as one of
the country's foremost amateur's.
Fischer, while surpassing the mark,
defeated Markham 4 antd 3 to head
the list of the winners. In other
matches played today Alex Jolly,
captain of the 1932 linksmen, put out
Hall 5-4; George David defeated Er-
roll Sweet 4 and 3, and Bud Dayton
eliminated Neahr 4 up and 3 to play.s
Fischer card follows:

Georgia-Tulane
Contest Will Be
South's Leader
Stanford Will Clash With
Santa Clara; California
To Take On St. Mary's
Football fans in the South are of-
fered rather lean fare compared to
the sparkling battles scheduled in
the Middle West and East today. The
headliner will be Georgia's game
with Tulane's Green Wave. The lat-
ter will probably.miss Coach Barnie
Bierman, who is coaching at Minne-
sota this fall. Other games bring
together Kentucky and G e o r g i a
Tech., Bowling Green and Vander-
bilt, Duke and Alabama Poly, Sewa-
nee and Florida, North Carolina and
Tennessee, and Roanoke and Vir-
ginia.
St. Marys, the giant killers of the
West, will attempt to duplicate last
week's upset, having as today's op-
ponents Bill Ingram's California
Bears. The University of Washing-
ton team, coached by Jimmy Phelan,
plays the University of OregoiA, while
Oregon state, beaten by Stanford last
week, will attempt to reverse the de-
cision when they play Southern Cal-
ifornia at Los Angeles.
Glenn S. "Pop" Warner, coach at
Stanford, announced that he would
use the same team that beat Oregon
State last week, in the Santa Clara
game today. In other games in the
West, Colorado School of Mines plays
the Colorado Aggies and Colorado
University mixes with Utah State.
Entries For Faculty
Tennis Close Today
Faculty tennis, one of the early ac-
tivities on the fall calendar of the
Intramural department, "is scheduled
to start Oct. 10 this season. Entries
close two days before that time, and
so far 10 men have signed up for
the singles competition. Dr. Dorsey
was the champion for the 1931 tour-
nament.
The magic sweater, No. 24, worn
by Frank Carideo, is out of circula-
tion at Notre Dame University.

his loss,- according to critics, which
deprived the Elis of much of their
offensive power a week ago.
Dartmouth Favored
Dartmouth meets Lafayette in one
of the less important contests. La-
fayette is c o n c e d e d an outside'
chance, although their 6-0. victory
over Muhlenborg was hardly impres-
sive. In another New York City con-
test, Fordham will play Bucknell at
the Polo Grounds. The Rams will be
favored over the invaders despite the
pessimism of ti eir mentor.
Further south along the coastal
district, Pennsylvania meets Swarth-
more as a decided favorite. Penn
looks too strong.
N. Y. U. will meet Rutgers in the
third New York contest of today, and
here again the home team is favored
over the invading foe. Harvard is"
favored over New Hampshire, and
further west, Syracuse seems likely
to take over Ohio Wesleyan without
too much trouble. Cornell should
defeat Richmond easily.
