(Continued from Page 1)
with men three deep, the Gophers are
equipped for victory by large scores.
But their attack has clogged up, and
such runners as Andy Uram, Larry
Buhler and Bill Matheny are not
dashing across the chalklines with
expected frequency.
The Gophers, too, have revealed an
inability to solve aerial attacks, as
proved in both the Nebraska and In-
diana games. This may provide Mich-
igan the crevice into which it can
drive a wedge of passes and com-
plete the subjugation of the once
mighty Minnesota eleven.
No Change In Line
Anticipating this, Kipke has worked
hard on his passing game, and Stark
Ritchie and Fred Trosko, neither of
whqm has been overly successful as
tossers thus far, may find a target
often enough to render damage to the
Gopher machine. After Valpey, Dan
Smick, Elmer Gedeon and John Nich-
olson, Michigan's tall ends, can haul
them in if they drop within grasping
Hunk Anderson's line, which gained
more than a modicum of praise for its
play against Northwestern last week,

0NLY SUCKERS try to forecast
football results, so once again we
hastily consult the swami's crystal
and come up with today's predictions.
Despite a certain "thin man's" al-
legation that we're washed up, our
confidence remains unshaken. In-
stead of dropping a mere dime in the
office pool, we're going whole hog this
time and relinquishing two-bits for
wagering purposes. The boys think
this an ostentatious display of wealth,
but it's truthfully just faith in our

although Joe Savilla's injured hand
might hamper him, in which case Bill
Smith will assume the right tackle
duties. Don Siegel, heralded far and
wide last week, stands ready to con-
tinue his aggressive tactics at left
tackle. Jack Brennan and Ralph
Heikkinen, 60-minute guards, and
Archie Kodros, center, complete the
Wolverine front.
Take To Air
In the event of frustration via the
ground, the Gophers, surely cogniz-
ant of Michigan's reported weak-
nesses against passes, will churn the
air with aerials, although they're
primarily runners. Andy Uram can
prove nettlesome with his flips, and
Capt. Ray King and Dwight Reed,
veteran ends, are excellent receivers.
Both elevens will resort to linemen
for their punting. Minnesota's best
booter is Horace Bell, colored guard,
and Michigan's ace is Elmer Gedeon,
lanky end who may start because of
his kicking talents.
Farmer In Clean-Up Spot
Against the Uram-Buher-Moore-
Gmitro quartet, Kipke will place Fred
Trosko and Hercules Renda, his soph-
omore running stars, with Tex Stan-
ton, fullback, and Doug Farmer, quar-
terback, sharing the blocling burden.
Michigan hasn't scored a touch-
down against the Gophers in five
years.. In 1933, a field goal repulsed
the Norsemen, and since then Wol-
verine success has been registered
in zeroes, while their foe has chalked
up 100 points.
Revolta Leads Pros

OKLAHOMA CITY, Oct. 15.-(A')-
Johnny Revolta, the Chicago golf
artist whose temper flared when op-
ponents refused to concede a putt,
bore down on the back nine today and
led a crack field of 16 pros in the
second round of Oklahoma City's
$5,000 four-ball tournament with a
par 71. His consistent work gave him
and partner Ray Mangrum, of Day-
ton, O., a 1-up victory over Harry
Cooper and Horton Smith of Chicago.

Open Champion, and Billy Burke,

le'd the field at the beginning of
the second day's play, finished all
even with Tommy Armour, Chicago,
and Jimmy Thomson.
Lawson Little of Chicago, who
carded a 72 for the second best score
in the second round, and Paul Run-
yan of New York, with a 79, scored
a 2-up victory over Ky Laffoon and
Dick Mets of Chicago.
