'--Will Today's Game Tell The



Sam Willaman -
Cornell Referee . .
back in his comfortable chair at
the Dearborn Inn yesterday evening.
He did not look complacent, nor did
he look over-worried. Mr. Willa-
man was comfortably relaxed, and
he was ready to talk about almost
everything but this afternoon's game.
"Mr. Willaman," said I, "it is your
turn to win this year since we won
last year and you won the year be-
fore." The Buckeye coach pointed
out the fact that Michigan had never
played very fairly on that basis in
the years preceding all this, and was
not likely to become ethical all of a
sudden. . }
Beyond this remark, the genial
coach had little to say except that he
had a "good" line and a rather green
backfield, and that he only wished
that his backfield were sufficiently
experienced to play an open game
since the Wolyerine line was strong.
That means that the Scarlet and
Gray wil rely upon its running at-
tack for a major part of today's of-
Incidentally, the late Mr. Steve
Farrell, former Michigan track coach
and builder of track champions, was
the first man who ever got Sam Wil-
laman into an athletic uniform. The
track mentor, then at 0. S. U.,
spotted Willaman in a gym class one
day and started him on an athletic
career which ultimately brought him
into a football suit and then into
coach's togs.,
This player Bill Renner is not un-
derestinatdi. by the Bickeyes. He
codmes from Ohio, and they rate him
down there as one of the greatest
passers ever developed there. Any
flashy forward passing attack on the
part of Kirke, if built around Ren-
ner, will not surprise Ohio State
a great deal.
* * *
TION that the referee in this af-
ternoon's battle will be Fred Gard-
ner of CORNELL! I am not trying
to impeach Mr. Gardner's honesty
because I do not doubt that Mr.
Gardner will referee just as fairly as
though Cornell had never seen Mich-
igan. But it just seems to be sort of
an omen or something, that's all.
As far as the spirit .of the men on
both squads is concerned, they are
confident, but with rather a healthy
respect for the opposition. And I
take this opportunity to make the
only sure prediction of the entire un-
certain week. Somebody will be dis-

team expects to make a great deal
through the opposing line.
Padlow, Conrad, Monahan, Vuch-
inich, Gailus, Rosequist, and Gillman
will probably start as members of the
forward wall rated by many experts
as the best in the country, while they
will be opposed by Petoskey, Wistert,
Savage, Bernard, Borgmann, Austin,
and Ward, estimated to be a good
match for the Buckeyes.
Cramer, a veteran who saw effec-
tive service against the Wolverines
in their last defeat, will pilot the
Ohio machine, and his running mates
in the backfield will probably be Hee-
kin and Smith at the halves, with
Wetzel at fullback.
Besides Captain Fay, Everhardus,
Heston, and Regeczi will probably
start in the Michigan backfield with
Renner standing a good chance to be
called on for work in the aerial at-

two Michigan contests so far this sea-

Big Ten Coaches Unite In
'Blues Singing' As They
Complete Preparations
Purdue At Chicago
Iowa Favored To Defeat
Wisconsin; Wildcats To
Take On Indiana
CHICAGO, Oct. 20-()-Who is
going to win the Big Ten football
games tomorrow?
Well, if you read and believe the
statements of the coaches, the an-
swer is: The other team.
Space along the crying wall al-
ways is in demand, but this week
there has been a verbal broadside of
tears and the sobbing towels are
dripping wet. It must be a breech
of etiquette to predict a victory for
your own team.
The 'blues singing' has turned into
a chorus. Of course, it is natural
for a coach not to put himself on
the 'spot' with an outright prediction
of victory, but a deeper note of pes-
simism has been struck.
'Most Games Even
The reason for the extreme cau-
tion is quite apparent. Most of the
games figure to be pretty even con-
tests. Then too, favorites have not
won a conference game this year
while the best the underdogs have
done, with one exception, is to se-
cure ties.
Experts have been splitting hairs
trying to pick the winner of the Ohio
State-Michigan game at Ann Ar-
bor, where 85,000 are expected to at-
tend. Breaks undoubtedly will play
a big part in determining the win-
ner. The Wolverines are known to
play for breaks.-
Purdue Is Favored
Purdue will be favored to whip
Chicago at Stagg Field, but there is
enough dope to make one hesitant
over picking the winner. The Ma-
roons have not opened up their of-
fensive power despite the fact that
they scored 72 points in two prelimi-
nary contests. They have a reper-
toire of seven dozen plays and so
far have only displayed a dozen of
them. Consequently Purdue doesn't
know what to expect.
Northwestern, a team that has yet
to show an offense, tackles an eleven
with one of the best defenses in the
conference, Indiana. Dick Hanley
claims the Wildcats, one down in the
title race, will show a real attack,
but won't say they will win.
Spears Fears Iowa
Iowa gets the call over Wisconsin
although Ossie Solem, the Hawkeye
coach, can't see it that way. After
taking a 21 to 0 licking from Illinois,
Coach Spears has been gloomy over
the Badgers' future.

The other two games tomorrow are
non-conference affairs involving Il-
linois and the Army at Cleveland
and Pittsburgh at Minneapolis. The
Gophers will be meeting a team ev-
ery bit as big and powerful as they
are and it. looks like a real battle.
There have been predictions of vic-
tory for both sides in the Illini-Ca-
det game.

Team To Open
Season Today
Doherty's Squad Will Meet
Western State Harriers
At 11 O'Clock
The Michigan Cross country team
will inaugurate the 1933 season this
morning against the Hilltoppers of
Western State Normal. The meet
will be at Ferry Field, starting at 11
a. m.
Comparatively little is known of
the strength of either of the two
teams but the Wolverines are ex-
pected to have a slight edge over the
Kalamazoo harriers. In the past,
the Teachers have had better than
average distance runners and if this
is true this year, they should give
the Wolverines a hard run for the
team victory.
Rod Howell and Paul Gorman, two
of the leading runners on the Mich-
igan squad, will not be in condition
this morning to run their best races.
Both have been ill, and have not had
sufficient time to roundinto first
class shape. Ken Doherty, cross-
country coach, is expecting to start
both of them against the Hilltop-
pers as the race will aid in getting
them into shape for the State meet
next Saturday.
Although Western State is bring-
ing only a seven-man team for the
meet, Doherty is expected to use his
full squad of ten men in order to
have some basis of judgment for fu-
ture matches.
Besides Howell and Gorman, Capt.
Bob Ostrander, Larry Quinn, Jack
Childs, Dick McManus, Harvey Nich-
olson, Walter Simons, John Clarke,
and Harvey Smith will comprise the
Maize and Blue team.
The race will be over a three mile
course, starting and finishing at Fer-
ry Field.
Playing Football
Isn't Only Thing
Ohio Men Do Well
As Told By Marshall Oliphant
To Marjorie Western
Members of the Ohio State foot-
ball team which will perform in the
Michigan stadium this afternoon for
the doubtful benefit of some 85,000
spectators, were chiefly occupied in
exuding confidence last night. At
other times various of the stars play
basketball, baseball, the piano, and a
few unique hobbies.
For instance, the towering tackles,
Ted Rosequist and Joe Conrad, are
almost assured of the guard positions
on the 1933-34 edition of the Scarlet
and Grey cage team. Padlow and
Marsh Oliphant will also be out for
basketball. McAfee, sub halfback,
holds down a regular job at first base
for the baseball team.
The cultural element is supplied by
Captain Sid Gillman, veteran end,
and Regis Monahan, one of the
guards. Gillman is a pianist of no
mean repute, who accompanies the

Here is what the following noted
sports writers have predicted on the
game today --
(The Chicago Tribune)
From the customer's standpoint it
ought to be swell game-if it doesn't
rain. Other than that, any predic-
tion would be superflous.
(United Press)
If the teams are to be rated even,
Michigan must be conceded the edge..
If Michigan's passing attack fails to
function, Ohio State will win.
(New York Herald Tribune)
Ohio will enter the game with an
even chance to win. However, if the
Wolverines are to be defeated this
season, the Buckeyes must accept the
nomination to do it.
(New York Times)
As invincible as this Ohio State
team seems, Corneians who ran into
the Maize and Blue buzz saw refuse
to believe that the Buckeyes or any
other outfit can get to first base
against Kipke's juggernaut.
Michigan will have the advantage
in kicking, for no one on the Ohio
squad has the ability to boot the
ball as far and as accurately as Re-
geczi. In only respect will Michigan
be below standard. There is no New-
man or Friedman and the passing
attack has not been as effective as in
the past.
(Associated Press)
I think Michigan will win. But
I hope it doesn't rain.

posed to sing. Monahan reads, and

Among the souvenirs in Marsh Oli-
phonts treasure chest is part of a

of the members of the University."
He won the cast on a touchdown play
during his sophomore year, when
someone "sat on" his leg.
Kiski Prep school is responsible for
the pre-college training of most of
the stars. Vuchinich, Gailus, Wetzel
and Pincura are graduates of the
Pennsylvania school. Most of them
were stars on their high.school teams,
Cramer and Oliphant both holding
the positions of quarterback and cap-
tain on their preparatory elevens.
Oliphant captained the juggernaut
that held the northern Ohio title for
two years and rolled up 273 points
against 10 opponents in one season.
(Editor's note-the breaks have been
pretty much against him at Ohio
State. He's had two broken ankles
and a smashed wrist in his three
years, but is still at it.)
Ohio State feels that it has a tough
team, but that there are certain
gentlemen, by name Bernard and
Regeczi, who are to be reckoned with
among the Wolverines. However, the
big idea always has been and always
will be to beat Michigan.

Eastern Rivals
In Grid Battles
This Afternoon.
Columbia-Princeton Game
Is Headliner; Dartmouth
Plays Pennsylvania
Although football games in the
East today cannot match those of
the Mid-West and far West, several
hard-fought contests will furnish the
Eastern fans with plenty of grid-
iron action.
Vieing with the Michigan-Ohio
State game for even fighting is the
Columbia-Princeton tussle at Prince-
ton, N. J. The Tigers are rated as
underdogs to "Fritz" Crisler's ma-
chine, but with Capt. Cliff Mont-
gomery at quarterback Columbia is
figured to cause a lot of trouble for
Kadlic and Constable of Old Nassau.
Columbia, at best, is slightly under
its par of last season and Princeton
has a heavy and experienced line.
Penn-Dartmouth Battle
Two other games hold promise of
an interesting afternoon, those be-
tween Dartmouth and Pennsylvania,
and Lehigh and Penn State. Penn-
sylvania has an excellent running at-
tack led by Lima, while Dartmouth
professes several good passers. Penn
{ is strong on the aerial defense and
I Dartmouth has a good line. It looks
like anybody's game. .
Lehigh took Johns Hopkins last
week 14 to 7 and looked powerful.
Penn State also claims a clicking
pass attack, but Lehigh has drilled
all week on pass defense and is ex-
pected to put up an air-tight de-
Cornell Meets Syracuse
After a 33-year break Cornell and
Syracuse will resume athletic rela-
tions at Syracuse in the classic of
the season for each team. Syra-
cuse has a much superior line and
probably will use it to advantage
against the light Cornells. Colgate
tackles N.Y.U. at New York in a
game that promises to show Andy
Kerr's protegees in a whirlwind of
spinners, line smashes, and forward
passes. N.Y.U., suffering from in-
juries in the backfield, must put up
a defense to hold the Maroon score
as low as possible.
Harvard, Yale Favored
Both Harvard and Yale take on
weaker foes today; Yale meets
Brown, and Harvard tangles with
Holy Cross. Brown is strong but in-
experienced. Yale has a good pass-
ing combination in Capt. Bob Lassi-
ter and Stan Fuller, which should
account for a large Eli score. The
Crusaders of Holy Cross are hamp-
ered by injuries and can put up only
a mediocre team against the Crim-
son tide. Harvard, coached by Ca-
sey in the Notre Dame style of play,
will embark on a tough schedule af-
ter this week, meeting Yale, Prince-
ton, and Dartmouth.

Buckeyes Have Visions
Of Rose Bowl Invitation
"We're going to the Rose Bowl
this year!" is what members of,
the Ohio State team were telling1
themselves as they lounged about
the Dearborn Inn last night, as
the Inn's string trio rendered thet
Buckeyes' fight song, that goes,
"Take the ball across the field."
An Ohio State halfback said
very emphatically as the conclud-i
ing statement of a long pep talkI
on the virtues of the team that
he delivered to a Daily reporter,
"Yes, I think we'll be playing in
the Rose Bowl this New Year's
Tulane Battles
Georgia Tech
In Feature Tilt
'Fumbleitis' Worries Cox
In Final Drills; Auburn
Meets Washington
"Fumbleitis," the disease which
coaches throughout the nation fear
and which seems to have effected
some of the outstanding teams, may
play an important part this after-
noon in one of the most important
Southern games. Tulane, the eleven
that has fumbled its way through its
first three games, will be in At-
lanta this afternoon where they will
match attacks with Bill Alexander's
Georgia Tech outfit.
In its first three games against
Texas Aggies, Georgia and Alabama,
Tex Cox's machine has fumbled even
more than the usual Tulane teams,
which are noted for their ability to
drop the ball at the wrong time. If
the Coxmen find that they are cured
of the disease today, they may make
things interesting for Georgia Tech.
Is Tenth Game
The game, which is the tenth be-
tween the two schools, is expected to
attract more than 25,000 spectators
to the Georgia capitol. Of the nine
games played since 1916, Tech won
the first five contests, Tulane the last
four. Last year, Tulane won by a
score of 20 to 14, and are out to re-
peat the victory this year.
Knoxville will be the scene of an-
other important tilt with Tennessee
stacking up against Alabama. Last
Saturday, the Vols were upset by
Duke, and today they will be at-
tempting to avenge this defeat. With
at least four regulars out of the
game because of injuries, Coach Ney-
land will have his work cut out for
him. Deke Brackett, regular quar-
terback, received a lacerated eye and
other injuries in the Duke game and
is not expected to start. If he is out,
Freddie Moses, 142 pound substittue,
will call signals for the Vols. Coach
Frank Thomas has shifted the Ala-
bama backfield around considerably.
Vandy-Mississippi State
Vanderbilt, defeated by O.S.U. last
week, will meet a strong Mississippi
State team in a game that is ex-
pected to furnish plenty of fireworks.
Duke and Kentucky, undefeated so
far this fall, will have tough compe-
tition against Davidson and Wash-
ington and Lee respectively.
Alabama Poly of Auburn will be
battle George Washington in an in-
ter-sectional contest. Georgia's tilt
against Mercer last night completes
the Southern card.
