Out Of The Hat..
THE WAY football upsets have been
coming at us this year it's worth
one's life to step out on the limb.
However, nothing daunted by the
utter disregard for form that the
teams have shown this year, we walk,
no-jump, in where angels fear to
tread.
Michigan-Ohio State: The hungry
Wolverines are going to give the
Buckeyes some blackeyes. A Michigan
offensive will surprise and out razzle-
dazzle Ohio State at their own game.
It's been five years since Michigan
has scored against Ohio State but
this year they're going to make up
for the famine. Michigan will win
19-4,
Minnesota-Wisconsin: Our emo-
tions say "tie" but reason triumphs.
So will Wisconsin. The once mighty
Gophers have absorbed too much
from Michigan, Northwestern and
Notre Dame. But, oh, oh, for a tie.
Notre Dame-Norhwestern: They
don't come back very strong after
playing Michigan and if memory
serves us rightly the Wildcats had a
slight encounter with the Wolverines
last, week. A much weakened North-
western linewill be bowled over by
at least two touchdowns.
Purdue-Indiana: Purdue, like Wis-
consin, is title conscious. And Lou
Brock, Mike Bylene et al won't let
the weakest Hoosier team in years
stop them. ,
Texas Christian-Rice: Davey O'-
Brien is the best passer in the country
and Ki Aldrich is the nation's best
center. The rest of TCU's line is al-
most as good. Texas Christian is un-
beaten and headed for xthe Rose
Bowl. Rice has been the year's biggest
disappointment. Three cheers for
TCU and a dissenting vote for Rice.
Yale-Harvard: Anything can hap-
pen in a game like this and anything
usually does. Harvard at the begin-
ning of the year was the best team
that had ever lost four straight. With
nothing at stake except possible mar-
ket repurcussions from the grads,
Harvard should and will win.,
Oklahoma-Iowa State: One of the
better games of the day with the Big
Six title at stake. Oklahoma is too
strong but watch for an upset here.
Duke-North Carolina State: So far
this year Duke's goal line has been
uncrossed, unbesmirched and unsul-
lied. What's more they haven't been
scored on. Who is North Carolina
State that they should spoil Duke's
records? To say nothing of ours.
Syracuse-Columbia: This game will
be decided by luck spelled Luck--man.
Amidst a flurry of passes, Columbia
the gem of Morningside Heights, will
shine in spite of the national anthem
of Syracuse, Oh Sidat Singh (trans-
lated Oh Say Can You Sing-a
slight parody).
California-Stanford: It's quite a
way from the ,East to the West and
the same may be said in reverse.
Speaking of ways, California has very
taking ways. California.
Michigan State-Temple:. The cur-
rent wave of anti-semitism brings to
mind the days of Maccabees and
the abomination of desolation. So it
will be here also. Yea, in the words
of the prophet, Temple will be dese-
crated.
In the other games of the, day we'll
take Pittsburgh over Penn State,
Army over Princeton, Baylor over
SMU, Villanova over Boston U., and
hand over fist. It is written also that
Illinois will dump Chicago on its
respective humph. Georgetown will
remain undefeated at Maryland's ex-
pense and if you don't follow these

predictions it will be at your own ex-
pense.

St. John's Drops
CollegiateAthletics
ANNAPOLIS, Md., Nov. 18-.)-
Intercollegiate athletic, competition
was ordered abolished at St. John's
College today by President String-
fellow Barr in a statement which
termed the American collegiate ath-
letic system "semi-professionalized."
President Barr said the intramural
athletic policy of the future at St.
John's would primarily consider the
pleasure of the individual student
rather than the "spectator psychos-
is" which he said "dominates" the
policy of most American schools.
Athletic Director Valentine (Dutch)
Lentz and his assistant, John Dono-
hue, tendered their resignations, ef-
fective in June, Barr announced.
Their places will be taken by a tutor
"combining a wide experience in ath-
letics with a full understanding of the
academic program," Barr said.

Expect Muddy Field For Wolverine-Buckeye Battl

Seniors To Sing Swan Song Today

Today's Buckeye Tilt Will Be Finale
For Nine Senior ichigan Gridmen

By HERB LEV
It was back in the fall of 1935.
Michigan was in the throes of a bad
football slump. The previous cam-
paign had been a dismal one, and
t the present one wasn't progressing
at a much better clip.
But nevertheless, those intimately
connected with the team still held
more than a glimmer of hope for the
future. Out on Ferry Field Wally
Weber was daily drilling a freshman
squad which was big and fast, and
was called the most promising group
to appear in recent years.
Nine Remain
This afternoon nine seniors, sur-
vivors of that '35 yearling crew, sing
their swan song to Big Ten compe-
tition. Of the large group of fresh-
men branded at the time as future
Varsity timber, these nine were the
only ones who could stand the gaff.
Illness, ineligibility, and financial
difficulties caused some of the better
ones to fall by the wayside. Several
IColiseum Will
* Open Tonight
For Students
When the Coliseum is opened to the
public for skating tonight, it will be
celebrating its tenth anniversary un-
der the ownership of the University.
Back in 1928, however, there was no
ice surface that could be frozen in
ten minutes, and Ann Arborites had
to depend on the weather for their
skating. It was not uncommon for
hockey games to be postponed be-
cause the temperature outside was not
low enough to freeze the rink. During
the first year, Coach Eddie Lowrey
was forced to cancel half his hockey
schedule on account of this.
One Of Best
The following year, the present
freezing plant was installed,, and
hockey fans were no longer dependent
on the elements. The system is one of
the largest and finest in the country
and never has to be operated at more
than half of its possible capacity to
keep the ice in good condition.
Ten miles of piping set four inches
apart are depended upon to freeze
the 17,156 square feet of ice at a
thickness of three-quarters of an
inch. The space between the pipes
are filled with sand which is first
thoroughly soaked and then frozen
before the first flooding is given the
cement-like surface which results.
Lowrey Is Coach
In the ten years that this rink has
been in existence, Michigan has had'
as many teams, all of which to date
have compiled a winning average of
over .700 per cent.
Some years, Coach Lowrey has ,
had turnouts of over sixty men from!
whom he had difficulty molding a
team. Other years, winning teams
have been developed from a meagre
amount of material, but whatever
the case Lowrey has always managed
to turn out colorful, winning teams.
Indiana Harriers
Win Big Ten Meet
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Nov. 18.-(')-
Mel Trutt ran four miles in 20 min-
utes, 11.8 seconds here today to lead
Indiana University's team to its sixth

highly touted high school stars
dropped out, as they found the- leap
to big-time competition too great,
and they fell below the standard for
Conference campaigning.
Dark Days Ahead
Dark days were the prospect for
this group in their sophomore year
as the green Wolverine eleven man-
aged to win only one game, but 1937
saw these boys, now juniors, with a
year's experience behind them, lead
their team out of' the doldrums to
gain a split for the season with a four
won, four lost record.
This fall Michigan's success has
been credited for the most part to the
new coaching staff and to the sensa-
tional sophomore crop, but the ex-
perts will testify that the improve-
ment of the seniors on the squad has
also proven a major factor.
Janke Handicapped
Leader of the senior group is Capt.
Fred Janke, who'll vacate the left
tackle berth he so capably filled for
the past three years. Injuries have
handicapped the big fellow from
Jackson throughout his career, but
he has always managed to give a good
account of himself. A petroleum en-
gineering career awaits Fred. upon
graduation.
Ralph Heikkinen, who hopes to
wind up his career by gaining an All-
Conference guard berth for the sec-
ond consecutive year, will probably be
the most sorely missed of the senior
crop. "Hike" will enter Law School
here next year.
Don Siegel, Jack Brennan, Elmer
Gedeon, and Danny Smick are the
remaining lineman who'll don the
moleskins for the last time today.
Siegel, giant tackle, hopes to enter
the naval air service next year, guard
Brennan will seek a coaching job,
while professional baseball will at-
tract the lanky ends, Gedeon and
Smick.
In the backfield, Norm Purucker,

Lou Levine and Wally Hook will be
playing their final game. Levine and
Hook will continue their education in
the Business Administration school,
while the colorful Purucker is still
undecided as to future plans.
Three more stars of the 1935 frosh
eleven, Ed Phillips, John Nicholson
and "Butch" Jordan, missed a year
of competition for various reasons,
and will return next fall to finish
their careers.
Full House At Madison
MADISON, Wis., Nov. 18 -)-
Spirits ran high as thousands of
Badger rooters arrived tonight for a
campus pep rally preceding tomor-
row's gridiron clash between the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin and Minnesota's
Gophers. Victory will bringWiscon-
sin its first Big Ten football title in
26 years. A capacity audience of 38,000
was assured, and Director of Ticket
Sales Harry Schwenker said at least
20,000 to 25,000 additional, ticket re-
quests went unfilled.

in Alex Schoenbaum (227 pounds)
and Co-Capt. Carl Kaplanoff (248
pounds), a pair of bruisers about as
easy to move as a tank. Despite their
size, they lack the speed, mobility,
and craft of Capt. Fred Janke, Don
Siegel and Bill Smith.
The same story holds true at the
guards where Ralph Heikkinen and
Jack Brennan are rated above the
Buckeye trio of Bill Nosker, Ed Hof-
mayer and Pete Gales.
The center post finds a closer call,
but Archie Kodros must still be
classed above Ohio's promising
sophomore, Charley Maag
Young Backfield
Ohio's backfield is young but has
shown considerable punch on occa-
sion this year. Two of the Buck-
eyes, Jim Langhurst and Don Scott,
stand one-two among the Conference
scorers to date. Langhurst has scored
six touchdowns in five games, three
against Chicago and three against
Illinois, while Scott, a reserve, has
added 21 points to the Buck tally
with three touchdowns and three
conversions.
Langhurst, a 186 pounder, is a
bruising runner who carries the ball
on those short chops in opposition
territory. He got his starting breakI
when Johnny Rabb, regular fullback,
was injured badly in a practice game.
At quarterback tomorrow will be
Jimmy Sexton, whose brilliant 'sig-
nal calling has given him the nod
over Co - Capt. Mike Kabealo.
Schmidt may give Kabealo the nod,
however, in deference to his position
as co-captain, this being his final
game.
Nine Close Careers
At the halfbacks, Schmidt will start
Frank Zadworney and Jimmy Straus-
baugh, who combined with Langhurst
and Sexton as the Bukeyes' most
potent combination this fall.
For Michigan, it will be Forest
Evashevski, Paul Kromer, Tom Har-
mon, and probably Wally Hook, h(e
same four who opened against North-
western. Observers stated tonight
that Ohio would have no back who
could compete with Kromer or Har-
mon in runing ability. They pointed
to Ohio's passing game and declared
that if the Buckeyes hoped to win,
they would have to pass their way to
victory. Michigan's line is considered
too formidable for the Buckeyes to
successfully penetrate.
For at least nine'Michigan seniors,
tomorrow's battle is the final col-
legiate contest. They are: Capt.
Fred Janke, Don Siegel, Ralph Heik-
kinen, Jack Brennan, Elmer Gedeon,
Dan Smick, Norman Purucker, Louis
Levine and Wally Hook. John Nich-
olson, Fred Olds a nd Ed Phillips have
competed only two years but are
eligible for a diploma in June and
thus for them another year is a mat-
tei' of choice. Bill Smith may also
be playing his last game, his possible
enrollment in medical school next
fall precluding further competition.
