Today For

The First Time Since 188

They'll Be Gunning For Old Eli's Scalp

Jack Brennan, left, and Ralph Heikkinen, have been selected by Coach
Fritz Crisler to start in the guard posts against Yale in today's game.
Both boys are seniors, and both figured prominently in Michigan's 89
yard drive for a touchdown against Minnesota last week, when the
Wolverine forward wall repeatedly ripped the Gopher line into shreds,
permitting the backfield to roll up six straight first downs. Heikkinen,
Michigan's "vest-pocket" guard, is making a serious bid for All Ameri-
can honors this year, and will have to do his best to convince Eastern
sports writers of his ability.

Two Undefeated Eleens
Wil Meet In Country's
Outstanding Game
SOUTH BEND, Oct. 21.- UP) -
Carnegie Tech and Notre Dame, two
of the nation's major undefeated
elevens, will meet,. in Notre Dame
Stadium tomorrow for the 16th time
in one df football's most colorful
The . Irish, three and four deep
at every position and possessing one
of the best running games in recent
history, will be slight favorites. Tech,
however, upset Notre Dame, 9 to 7,
last year and usually hits its peak
against Irish teams. In 1926 Notre
Dame, driving toWard national hon-
ors, was defeated 19 to 0 by Tech
in one of the sport's most outstand-
ing reverses.
Coach Elmer Layden was expected
to start the same lineup against Tech
that he used in victories over Geor-
gia Tech and Illinois. A nonstarter,
however, may prove the spark to the
Irish offernse. Ben Sheridan, fleet
left halfback whose punt returns
where a feature of the Illinois game,
was expected to see much service.
Carnegie may be without the' serv-
ices of Jack Lee, big fullback. At
that position may be Walter Ingalls
or Tony Laposki.
M.S.C. Meets
Orange Squad
Johnny Pingel Will Match
Aerials WithSidat-Singh
EAST LANSING, Oct. 21.-(')-
Three teams with fierce, mien and
an oragne cast camped outside the
Michigan State College ramparts to-
nightwhile a football-mad student
body dreamed that the Spartans to-
hmorrow might upset Syracuse' hopes
of national football honors. s -
The undefeated 33 Orangemen re-
.fused the offer of Coach Charley
Bachman to practice on Mackinr
Field when they arrived and with-
drew to a secret spot for a final peek
at their book of plays. The Spar-
tans put on their Saturday suits and
trotted around in the Stadium but
it was just to keep their muscles
moving for the big game tomorrow.
The advance guard of more than
2,000 alumni and a major portion of
the student body assembled for a
monster pep meeting tonight around
a 20-foot high bonfire.d
Promise for an aerial battle re-
mained bright. Syracuse will have
the threat of Sidat-Singh while
Michigan State will offer Johnny
Pingel in retaliation.
The visitors will lack only Burns
Marvil, reserve fullback, while the
Spartans will go into the game with-
out Gene Ciolek, Pingel's alternate,

Now that Michigan's New Deal in
football has swung into action, Wol-
verine followers are beginning to won-
der what kind of freshmen team
Coach Wally Weber is producing this
year. Will the class of '42 turn out
such gridiron greats as the Harmons,
the Kromers, the Meyers and the
Evashevskis of the year before?
On a whole, Weber's outfit this
year doesn't look quite as tough as
the usual Michigan frosh teams, but
there are still plenty of boys out there
that would make dependable players
on anybody's football squad.
Wistert At End
Weber has men at all positions who
have shown plenty of promise so far
and seem likely to see action on the
Varsity before their careers are over.
At the ends, for example, are two
big and speedy boys, Al Wistert and
Ted Kennedy. Wistert is the brother
of All-American Whitey while Ken-
nedy is a Saginaw Arthur Hill star
who won All-State mention last year.-
At the tackle slots, Steve Merrone,
Bob 8 iith, Herm Swerinsky and
George Ostroot have stood out so far.
Merrone made All-State first team
while playing for Detroit Northwes-
Junior Staff Again
Picks The Winners
Of Gridiron Battles
Hoping for fewer upsets than
occurred last Saturday, the junior
sports staff again enters its selection
of winners in twenty-eight of the
nation's leading gridiron battles.
Time will tell, but with a little luck
added to the juniors' inherent skill,
their average this week shoud ascend
far above the mediocre .538 suffered
a week ago. Here goes:
Michigan (6) over Yale (0)
Alabama (6) over Sewanee (0)
Auburn (6) over Georiga Tech (0)
Baylor (5) over Texas A&M (1)
California (6) over Washington (0)

tern last year, and Smith is Varsity
Bill's kid brother.
Another Kiski Flash
Weber has a host of good guards
on the squad. Bob Thomas, from
Muskegum, and Bill Melzow from
Flint are both All-State men. John
"Smokey" Stover from Milwaukee,
Port Huron's Jack Butler and Earl
Hoyt also show plenty of promise.
Bob Ingalls, the Kiski flash, is the
leading candidate for the center posi-
tion. His size, experience, and line-
backing ability have made him one
of the outstanding prospects on the
entire frosh squad.
Most of Coach Weber's backfield
material this year is light and speedy.
At quarterback, Harris Roberts, the
big Kiski product from Shaker
Heights, Ohio, and Jim Grissom, the
all-around Holland athlete, have
shown the most promise so far.
Westfall Among Stars
Bill Funk, who prepped at Culver,
Arnold Salvaterra, from Bellaire,
Ohio, Mar Weber, the All-Stater from
Saginaw, George Purcell, the big
Marshall star, Norm Call, Paul Van
Dam, and Bob Gager, from Carson
City are Weber's leading halfback
Little Bob Westfall, Ann Arbor's
pride and joy, is a fullback who seems
headed for collegiate stardom. Al-
nthough only five foot sevenhis block-
ing, tackling, running and passing
nhave made him one of the outstand-
ing men on the frosh squad.
Dave Nelson, the Detroit lad built
along the same dimensions as West-
fall, is another of Weber's backs
who can be added to the above list
of hopefuls. He's a speedy runner and
an excellent passer.

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 21.--VP) -
Pitt's proud Panthers, undefeated in
their last 20 games, dug in tonight
for an air raid expected tomorrow
from Southern Methodist's Mus-
The National champions have
promised a few passes of their own
for the 25,000 fans likely to watch
Pitt's first tussle with a representa-
tive of the Southwest Conference.
Coach Matty Bell, who pointed
his squad for this game by personally
scouting the Panthers two weeks ago
against Duquesne and leaving last
week-end open in his schedule, re-
ported his players in good shape.
Coach Jock Sutherland pointed
out this risk his Golden Panthers
faced by saying, "One pass can off-
set a 90-yard power march, so you
see what a strain we're under in
playing our first game against one
of those wonder passing teams from
the Southwest."

Australia may have its unorthodox
tennis stylist in Jack Bromwich, who
does his backhand volleying with
both arms, but Michigan, too, has a
player who exhibits that amazing
phenomenon of using either arm with
equal finesse on the court.
He is Jim Porter, up from the fresh-
man ranks to put in a serious bid for
a berth on next year's Varsity tennis
team. A few years ago, Jim had the
misfortune to fracture his right shoul-
der blade and the further misfortune
of not being able to raise his right
arm above the shoulder without con-
siderable pain. But this accident failed
to dampen Jim's keen interest in ten-
nis, and he set about to develop at
least a good service with his left hand,
being content to get along with his
drives from the right side.
As il evidenced by his current play
the experiment has been very success-
ful, and because he has experienced
such success with his left-handed
serve and right-handed volleys Jim
has no intention of going back to an
all-around right-handed game, al-
though his shoulder has been back
in shape for some time.
Porter has a deliberate style and
relies upon placements rather than
sheer speed, although he frequently

shots from up close to the net.
Rival teams next spring will be

feat is all the more amazing since
