Mr. Lynn Waldorf of Evanston,

"Michigan has the edge. They
should be favored."
Having heard this for six straight
weeks form six different coaches, I

them have been right. But Mr. Wal-

)u did beat Minnesota and we didn't.

Now about this Wisconsin affair, Mr.
Waldorf ...I
"We'll play better ball tomor-
row than we did against Wis-
censin. Gosh, we were dead that
day. Line sluggish, backs slow, no
punch. They hadftheir first team
backfield together for the first
time too. They deserved to win,
but we certainly looked terrible.
Like Michigan did against Yale."
May I infer from that, sir, that
Wisconsin has quite a ball club in
this hectic year of football?
"Pretty fair team. Michigan
could take them any day they're
right. Now don't quote me on
that. I'm not casting any asper-
sions on Wisconsin, but . . ."
No, we won't quote you, Mr. Wal-
dorf. Now back to this game tomor-
row. Do you think your boys will re-
gain their peak, football being such a
psychological business..
"Well, that's hard to say. Our'
only bad injury is Goldak, ,that
fellow over there with the cast on
his leg. As I told you, I think you
have an edge, but it will be a real
close game., Now if you'll ex-,
cuse me we're going to have a
short workout here. Goodbye
gentlemen."
Goodbye, sir. I will see you at 5 p.m.
today for an angle on how you did it
or how you didn't.

WHILE WAITING for Mr. Waldorf
and his squad of 35 to enter the
picturesque ,Inn, I chatted briefly
with the Chopper. The Chopper,
otherwise known as the Killer or the
Blank, is a 230 pound mass of affable
manhood known as Fred Vanzo.
Mr. Vanzo, who for three years
wore a purple sweater with a white
'N' on it, was adorned in a grey flan-
nel coat with a Detroit Lions emblem
on the pocket. This differentiates Mr.
Vahzo from wrestlers, weight lifters,
and pugilists of similar proportions,
who right attract attention by their
size.
Having quarterbacked Northwes-
tern for three years, during which
time he was heralded as the best
blocker in the circuit, Mr. Vanzo,
ought to know something about those
Wildcats. How about tomorrow,
Chopper?1
Mr. Vanzo flipped an imagin-
ary coin. "Even ball game," he
replied. "If Northwestern plays
good ball, that is. .Haman (Wild- r
cat center) wrote me that none
of the guys could get started last
week."r

and this seemed to be the tip-off.
Daly is the squad's best pass catch-
er. At the other end, Ted Grefe, an-
other capable receiver, has replaced
the usual occupant of the post, Tom
Eby.
The Wildcat line, averaging 196
pounds, is one of the finest in theI
country. Outstanding in the forward
wail are John Haman, 206 pound cen-
ter who seems to be a sure-shot all-
Conference selction; Bob Voigts, 196-
pound tackle; and Hal Method, 188-.
pound guard.
The Wolverine forward wall will be'
hampered by the injury of Capt. Fred
Janke, who will see infrequent serv-
ice at best due to an ankle injury.
Don Siegel has been moved to left
tackle with Bill Smith working on
the right side.
Six Michigan linemen and three
backs play their final home game to-
day. They are: Capt. Janke, Don
Siegel, Dan Smick, Elmer Gedeon,
Ralph Heikkinen, and Jack Bren-
nan in the line; Norm Purucker, Lou
Levine, and Wally Hook in the back-
field.
by and Vanzo pardoned himself and
began talking to Kip. When the big
Wildcat squad arrived, there was a
general hullabaloo with Vanzo in the
middle. I missed most of this as. a
Virginia Anderspn, who they tell met
is Northwestern's beauty queen, got
in the way and obstructed my view.
As I was leaving I happened to
notice Vanzo talking to Haman, Bob
Voights, and Bob Daly of Evanston.
There was an incessant buzz emanat-
ing from this crew of football talent,
but Vanzo dominated the conversa-
tion. Here's what it sounded like-
plus gesticulations:'

Wildcats And Ohio State Must
Win To Stay InBig Ten Race

r

t

By TOM PHARES
Northwestern and Ohio State, two
of the early season favorites, are on
the spot today. As things stand now,
they each have the narrowest kind of
of a chance for a slice of the Big Ten
title, but a defeat today would seal
their doom for good.
The Wildcats will ent'r the Stadium)
this afternoon slight favorites to stop
Michigan's championship drive but
bets are hard to get. With two great
lines facing one another it seems cer-
tain that the game will eventually
develop into an aerial battle-the kindj
of thing that produces upsets of all
sports.
Buckeyes Desperate
Down at Columbus, the Buckeyes
of Ohio are desperate. Undefeated in
Big Ten competition until they fought
Northwestern to a scoreless tie,
Schmidt's eleven last week fell before
a last period Purdue onslaught to
lose 12-0 and see their title chances
grow dim.
' The job ahead of them looks enor-
mous. Today Zuppke brings his always

troublesome Illini to the Ohi;, Stadi-
um and, even though Ohio should
win this one, they must face Michi-
gan in the final game of the season.
This afternoon the Buckeyes will
outweigh Illinois 22 pounds to the
man and according to. Zuppke, the
Ohio line is just as fast as his. Zup
goes on to say, however, that in his
opinion State has been overrated since
the first of the, season so the "old
man" still has hopes. And when Zup
thinks he has a chance to win, he
has. Ohio State must be given the
nod in pre-game prognostications
however.
Cellar Battle Set
The other Conference clash today
features the attempt of Indiana's col-
lapsible Hoosiers to drag themselves
out of the Big Ten cellar by means of
trimming Iowa who would be there
themselves had they not played one
good ball game this season, tying
Purdue two weeks ago. It's a tough one
but many experts are going with In-
diana in the belief that they must
have ''one good game in their sys-
tems.
In other games' involving Confer-
ence teams, Minnesota takes on un-
>eaten Notre Dame, Wisconsin trav-
els West to meet UCLA, and Chicago
engages the University of the Pacific
in a game in which Coach Shaugh-
nessy of the Maroons avers "My team
doesn't have a chance to win." Purdue
is idle today.
