No Apologies Needed. . .I
morning's sport column has been
reserved for apologis, for the "if's
and and's" of Saturday's grid wash-
out, for the second guess that smelled
of disgustin goptimism. The idea
never appealed to skeptics, nor to
the discerning souls who perceived in
each futile battle defects that glared
like a black eye. Thus the apologetic
piece was scrapped when this citadel
was foisted on its present sentinel.
Defeat accrued as usual Satur-
day, and still no apologies are
forthcoming here, mainly because
Michigan needs no apologies for
its performance against the Wild-
cats. Of course, they still pay
off on the final score, as Fielding
H. Yost used to observe when the
Wolverines won in the prosperous
era after spending most of the
time in the gloom of their own
goal. But Michigan made even
the tall man rise, in a moment of
forgetfulness, to shout them on-
ward Saturday.*'
Fred Trosko and Hercules Renda
found huge gaps in the Wildcat for-
ward wall, and either the Michigan
line had decided to move out or else
Northwestern had better hie to the
storm cellars because its line, to state
it accurately if a bit inelegantly,
stank. Even Tex Stanton walked up-
right through the center of the line
for a couple of creditable gains.
The most revelating feature of
lichigan's play was the apparent
awakening of its big linemen. These
huskies, who until now displayed an
Alphonse-Gaston complex when on
the charge, forget their decorum and
really rattled a few Wildcat molars.
They were led, as everyone now
knows, by big bruising Don Siegel,
who spent the hour,'harrassing Lynn
Waldorf's backs. We can't think of
any better word now than we did in
the heat of our press-box story; he
was ubiquitous. Of course, from
what Ted Husing is reported to have
said about him, the rangy Royal Oak
tackle played a one-man game. But
the eloquent Mr. Husing is given to
superlatives which, know no bounds.
Joe Savilla and Bill Smith, at
tie right tackle, were physically
expressive, too. As were Ralph
Heikkinen and John Brennan.
And the Wildcat reverses didn't
sweep Dan Smick and John
Nicholson like a vacuum cleaner,
either. And that's what disturbs
Could a team possibly improve

in one week to such an extent?
Against State the Wolverine
line resembled a Swiss cheese
at times, the holes were that ob-
vious. Against Northwestern, it
ran roughshod. There was a
palpable difference between the
Spartan and Wildcat lines, but
whether it was of sufficient lati-
tude to permit a frustrated wall
(in the State battle) to go sud-
denly berserk (in the Wildcat)
game) we do not choose to an-
swer. Frankly, we don't know.
Air Holes ! ! !
Michigan's loss was due to its atro-
cious aerial defense. And it's no
secret that Minnesota will pass when
they reach the Stadium next Satur-
day. If they don't their scouts have
been grossly negligible and ineffi-
cient, if not totally blind. Northwes-
tern threw 13 passes, completed
eight, to gain 128 yards as compared
to 106 negotiated by rushing. Heap,
Jefferson and Ryan took turns in
denting our secondary with sharp
Michigan State threw 17 passes,
completed eight for 189 yards against
Michigan. If that isn't adequate
proof of the Varsity's inability to
check an airplane attack, then the
depression was a dream.
Another significant item is Michi-
gan's floozy pass offense. Sixteen for-
wards were attempted against North-
western, only four completed. Four
were intercepted. Often, it appeared
to us, Elmer Gedeon was past N.U.'s
secondary, but no one could hit him
with a pass. Several were overthrown.
But a pass defense CAN be
erected. A pass offense CAN be
developed. Saturday Minnesota
comes to town, not the cocksure
outfit that threatened to clean
house over the nation this season.
The Gophers feel the push of
precedence; their predecessors
cut fancy didoes in the national
grid scene, and reporters, taking
the cue, foresaw naught but an
encore for Bernie Bierman's boys.
As a result the Gophers have
tightened up, realizing that even
a momentary lapse might cause
their props to fall. Evidently, the
props are giving way. They are
bewildered by disillusionment.
It's easier to lose than they
Kipke and his boys are in a sweet

Chi Psi opened the defense of their
fraternity athletic championship with
a smashing 13-3 triumph over Phi
Kappa Tau. Led by Greenwald,
whose kicking was a feature of the
contest, they pulled away to an early
lead and at halftime were leading
their opponents 10-2.
The second half was a bit closer
but Greenwald, Rae, and McLean
each tallied once to more than offset
a lone count of Pinkerton's, and the
final whistle found them easily on the
long end of a 13-3 score. Greenwald,
with 8 points, was high scorer for the
game, while McLean counted 3 times
and Rae twice to complete the total.
The first half of the Lambda Chi
Alpha-Acacia game was extremely
close, with the Lambda Chis enjoying
a 3-1 advantage at halftime. How-
ever, when play was resumed, they
slowly but surely pulled away from
their less experienced opponents to
make the final score 10-5. Tyler and
Staley 'each tallied three points to
share scoring honors.

Minnesota Team Has Experts Changing
MindsAs Wolverine Game Approaches

Does Michigan have a chance
against Minnesota's Golden Gophers
this season? Two weeks ago any ex-
pert would have indignantly refused
to answer such a question on the
grounds that it was an insult to his
professional dignity. But now things
are different.
Early this fall the Gophers were
again ballyhood as the strongest
team in the country and an odds-of-
favorite to regain the mythical cham-
pionship of the nation. With Rudy
Gmitro and Andy Uram back to lead
the attack, the experts were practical-
ly unanimous in acclaiming them as
another powerhouse eleven.
Came the opening of the season
and a new day dawned. The Nebras-
ka Cornhuskers lost no time in re-
vealing to the world at large that
Minnesota could and would be beat-
en. Taking advantage of the breaks,
, li

they emerged from the conflict on
the long end of a 14 to 9 score.
Of course, Nebraska always has a
tough team and the Gophers could
attribute this loss to bad luck and a
slow start. They looked ahead to
their next game which was last Sat-
urday's affair with Indiana which
was the opening conference game for
both elevens.
While the Nebraska loss had not
been taken too seriously, the result of
the Indiana game was a distinct set-
back for Gopher prestige. Although
they did win 6 to 0, they were sup-
posed to commit nothing short of
manslaughter in this affair. Instead,
they came so close to losing that Ber-
nie Bierman will not forget those final
minutes for quite a while.
The big red team from Blooming-
ton fought the Golden Wave to a
near standstill, their line outcharging
the famed Minnesota forward wall
when the chips were down. To add
insult to near injury, they fought
their way to the nine yard line in the
final minutes of play and were only
stopped when they missed fire with
two desperate passes.
So far this season, Minnesota has
failed to show any kind of a passing
attack and although their running
game is still pretty good, it has fal-
len far short of expectations.
The why and wherefores of this
unexpected situation are still pretty
much a matter of conjecture. It is

puzzling to everyone including the
Minnesota coaching staff.
With the improved play of the
Wolverines of Michigan as an added
attraction then, a capacity crowd
ought to see a real battle at the Sta-
dium this Saturday.
At least there is this much to be
said. What two weeks ago seemed
si.WatwwekagsemdAC.like a hopeless case of mayhem with BI t
a decided flavor of corpus delecti, now
gives prospects of turning into an
old-fashioned, knockdown, drag-out TheHo e of Fie Taiorin
