He Picks Ohio...
By PAUL WARREN
COLUMBUS, O., Nov. 17. Bolstered
physically and mentally by its
crushing victory over Illinois last
week, Ohio State is gunning for its
fifth straight win over the Michigan
Wolverine and a Big Ten champion-
ship which lies in the balance of this
game which will be played here at
Ohio Stadium Saturday-
Crushed by the unexpected defeat
administered them by Purdue two
weeks ago, the Buckeyes rebounded
in great style to hand Illinois its most
decisive loss in several years last Sat-
urday, bolstering the waning spirit
of the team considerably.
Recognized as the craziest
football town in the country, Co-
lambus has been taking on all
the aspects of the usual pre-
big game atmosphere, for it real-
izes that for the first time in
many seasons, the Scarlet will
find a real foe again in Michi-
gan-so much a foe that many
people here are picking the
Wolverines to beat the Bucks.
The squad came out of the Illinois
fracas in wonderful physical shape
with every regular being in shape
to do battle Saturday. Only little
Vic Marino, left guard, has a hurt
which might be labeled serious by
Trainer Tucker Smith, but Vic prom-
ises to be in there by Saturday.
COACH FRANdS SCHMIDT will
stand pat on his starting lineup
for he hates to break up a winning
combination, andabarring further in-
jury,- this will have Esco Sarkkinen
and Wendell Lohr at the ends; Alex
Schoenbaum and co-Captain Karl
Kaplanoff at tackles; Pete Gales and
Ed Hoff mayer at guards;, Charlie
Mpag at center; Jimmy Sexton, quar-
terback; Jimmy Strausbaugh and
Frank Zadworney at the halves; and
Jimmy Langhurst at fullback.
The one possible change in this
lineup at the last moment may
be a gesture of sentiment by
Schmidt in starting Mike Ka-
bealo, the othe co-captain, at
quarterback in his last game for
the scarlet and Gray. Kabealo's
signal calling has been none too
good allseason, and Sexton ap-
parently has clinched the regular
quarterback post by his brilliant
exhibition against Illinois.
Though not prevailing too much,
confidence for a win reigns supreme
in the Bukeye camp this week. The
entire squad from 'the regulars to
the lowest manager- is anxious for a
win over the Wolverines, for nobody
in Columbus can forget the years of
1932-33 when the Maize and Blue
knocked the Bucks out of two Big Ten
and National championships,
HAVING SEEN the Bucks in every
game this year and watching their
practice sessions with regularity, I
cannot help but notice the grim se-
riousness of the boys in their will to
win the Big Ten championship and
further their claims of superiority
over Michigan with a fifth straight
win on the gridiron. The team has
come a long way from that afternoon
in September when it barely eked out

a victory over a poor Indiana club.
The numerous sophomores on
the squad are now seasoned vet-
erans who have been "through
the mill." The boys realize that
their mental mistakes cost them
an undefeated season in losses
to Southern California and Pur-
due, and they are determined to
make none against the Michigan
eleven.
Though I realize the strength of

To Be Season's Last
With the 1938 football season al-
most a thing of the past, yesterday
afternoon, in the next to last practice
of the season, Coach Crisler sent his
Wolverine football squad through a
long workout specializing in the per-
fection of plays.
To start things out the Wolverine
coaches had various players try to
make field goals a good distance
away from the goalposts. Smick,
Valek, Harmon, and Meyer took
turns on this practice, with no one
obtaining an average result. Kromer
and Strong alternated at holding the
ball.

fans succeeded in tearing down the
goal posts, the only tim, that feat
has been accomplished in the 10 years
of the new Stadium's existence. In
the riot that accompanied the post-
tearing-down episode one man was
knocked unconscious and another
parted with six teeth.
In 1936 and 1937 the Michigan
team succeeded in holding the score
down to a semi-respectable figure but
21-0 was the result both years.
In '36 Ohio State's "razzle-dazzle"
was too much for a bewildered Michi-
gan team that won only one game
that year. Ed Phillips, Don Siegel,
and Danny Smick started the game
and before it was over Coach Kipke
had shot Elmer Gedeon, Jack Bren-
nan, Lou Levine, Wally Hook, and
Norm Purucker into the fray. All of
these will face the Buckeyes Satur-
day.
Last year before 65,000 hopeful
spectators Ohio State won out on
completed and intercepted forward
passes. The last game a Kipke-
coached Michigan team played was
a 21-0 loss in a blinding snow-storm.
Saturday, however, a Crisler-
coached Michigan team makes its
first start against Ohio State. Wheth-
er it will inaugurate a new victory
era for the Wolverines over the Buck-
eyes is a question that will be answer-

the Michigan team and the bitter-
ness of the rivalry between the op-
posing elevens, I can see nothing but
a Scarlet and Gray triumph over the
Maize and Blue. I believe that the
local fans are going to see a real
Ohio club in action for the first time
this season, one that should pass
and run its way to a victory by at
least one touchdown.
