Editor's Note: Here is this week's ex-
change column. The writer is Cliff
Jaffe sports editor of The Daily North-
Evanston Embers .. .
EVANSTON, ILL., Nov. 10.-Hopes
for even a piece of the thor-
oughly-minced Big Ten pie gone with
a surprise Wisconsin defeat last week,
Northwestern's dazed grid warriors
will be out to roll up touchIowns
against Michigan Saturday in their
last Conference engagement of the
The Wildcats, who were supposed-
ly title-bound after whipping Minne-
sota, have been practicing at Dyche
Stadium all week preparing to stop
the brilliant Wolverine stars. Tommy
Harmon, sophomore flash, will be
the target of the Wildcat football
volley. Make no mistake of that;
they'll be gunning for him.
To counter the flashy Michi-
gan attack, Coach Waldorf hopes
to spring a surprise Saturday and
send Erwin Madsen, sophomore
left half who showed plenty of
abifity against Wisconsin, into
the fray early. Ollie Halhnenstein,
another sophomore left half,
probably will also see his share
of action in relieving Jack Ryan,
regular at this position.
Replacing the feeling of exuber-
ance which has predominated all
year in Evanston, local rooters are in
a state of bewilderment this week.
What happened to our great line?
Why wasn't our backfield functioning
Saturday? We thought . be had re-
serve power? . . . These are some of
the questions Purple rooters ponder
Coach Waldorf and his aides have
been hoping that the Wildcat let-
down against Wisconsin was merely
a. natural phenomenon, following a
Minnesota game. The same occured
two years ago when Northwestern
beat the Norsemen. They then let
down against Wisconsin. It can also
be noted that Northwestern played
sloppy ball the following week, too,
beating the same Michigan team
they face Saturday, 9 to 0.
FROM THIS CORNER, we feel that
Northwestern is a stronger team
than last week's defeat indicates.
Men 'like John Haman, center, and
Bob Voigts, tackle, are probable All-
Confernce choices. Michigan can-
not forget that Capt. Cleo Diehl, end;
Nick Cutlich, tackle, and Jack Ryan,
halfback, are other players who can
rise to the heights.
It is also believed that Bernie
Jefferson, giant Negro right half,
should have at least one sensa-
tional game in his system. This
game Saturday being his last in,
the Conference as a collegian, Big
Jeff might tear loose. He gavel
indication of that when he ripped
up 95 yards in racing to a touch-
down last week against Wiscon-
During the week, Northwestern's
eleven has gradually begun to for-
get the Badger uprising and concen-
trated on the Michigan game. The
seniors on the team-Voigts, Diehl,
Eby, Jefferson-are especially anxious
to stop the Michigan steam-roller to
the Big Ten title.
Fancy razzle-dazzle passing and
tricky running plays have been the
order of things at practices, and it is
likely that the fans who jam the sta-
dium Saturday will see a hurt North-

western team out to do something.
They might lose by two or three Fred Janke On Sidelines;
touchdowns, and then again, they Statistics Indicate Close
might win by several.

THOSE WILDCATS will be tough,
make no mistake of that. The line
composed of Diehl and Tom Eby,!
ends; Voigts and Nick Cutlich,
tackles; Hal Method 'and Don Guritz,
guards and Haman, center, is cap-
able of many offensive and defense
tricks. Dick Richards, lone sopho-
more starter, quarterback; Ryan and
Jefferson, halfs, and George McGurn,
fullback, round out a veteran team
determined to wipe out the stigma of
unexpected defeat.
. The psychological advantage
will be theirs. Michigan is cocky
and sure ater victories over Yale,
Pennsylvania, Illinois and Chi-
cago. The Purple have little to
lose, and much to gain. From
this corner, we see the game as a
standstill for the first half. Then
the fireworks will begin. We feel
safe in saying that the winning
team will' have to score at least
two touchdowns. If Michigan will
win they will have to score three.
Maybe its sentiment, or maybe its
a hunch, and then again it may be
that hours of pondering over record
books and form sheets are to be suc-
cessfully rewarded, but we picked
Northwestern .". . by not more than
six points.,
At any rate, it will' all be over when
the final score stands high on the
board above the jammed stands, just
as the sun sets on the stadium Sat-
urday. One team will have to win
We'll §ee you on the 50-yard line.

Theta Xi And Acacia Are
Also Speedball Victors
The, field was narrowed to three
teams in the first division of the inter-
fraternity speedball league yesterday
as Theta Xi edged Alpha Tau Omega
8-7 in a" closely fought battle and as
Sigma Chi romped over Phi Gamma
Delta 11-0. The other team remaining
is Phi Deta Theta who next will play
ISigma Chi. The winner will meet The-
ta Xi for the championship next week.
The Sigma Chi's had an easy time
of it as they sifted through the leaky
defense to score goal after goal. Mean-
while the Sigma Chi back line kept
their goal out of danger by long-
booming punts far into the Phi Gam's
Jack Cooper led the winners in
scoring with two goals and a field
goal for a total of five points. Bill
Collette helped to make it a rout as
he added his four points to the total
for the day. Jack Cory and Blaz
Lucas each added a point to bring
the total to 11.
The favored Theta Xi team had
trouble with a stubborn A.T.O. aggre-
gation barely remaining on top by the
score of 8-7. The strong offense of
A.T.O. led by Bill Black who pushed
five counters over the goal line nearly
caught Theta Xi off balance.'
In the other speedball contest of
the day Acacia eliminated Delta
Upsilon from the second division play-
offs by defeating them 8-4. Starring
for the victors was Fred Seyfried who
was high scoring man of the day
with seven points.

Aerial Attack Indicated
EVANSTON, Ill., Nov. 10.-(P)-
A passing attack by Northwestern
against Michigan was indicated
clearly today when Coach Lynn
Waldorf put the Wildcats through
4 long aerial drill and announced
the squads' best receivers, Ted
Grefe. and Bob Daly, would start
against the Wolverines.
Grefe and Daly will replace
regulars Tom Eby and Capt. Cleo

start in the-right half, signal call-
ing berth. The Wildcats will leave

night in Dearborn.
plete teams alternated in running
these plays against the reserve squad.
Tom Harmon and Paul Kromer
were filling the halfback posts, while
Forest Evashevski and Ed Phillips
completed this backfield. The forward
wall was composed of Smick and
Nicholson at ends,' Siegel and Smith
the tackles, while Brennan; Heik-
kinnen, and Kodros filled in the
guard and center positions respective-!
Janke Still Out
Captain Janke spent the afternoon
on the sidelines because of the stiff-
ness of his foot. The injury itself is
not serious but it requires more than
an average amount of time in order
to heal. Jack Meyer's knee was still
lame but with another day of rest both
he and Janke will be ready for Satur-
day's contest.
Going by statistics garnered against
other teams, the Wolverines and Wild-
cats are about as equal as any two
teams could possibly be after both
had met six different opponents.
Northwestern holds a narrow mar-
gin in the number of first downs
made against their rivals. Their op-
ponents have accounted for forty-
four first downs while the Wolverines
have been nicked by their rivals for
forty-five first downs.

Two years ago Don shared the spot-
