Win Second

Game From Reds,


Real Footb U Fans .
One of Jim Farley's lads left this
lying on our desk. It was from Jack
Brennan, varsity guard last year, and
now playing with the professional
Green Bay Packers.
Oct. 2
Dear Corner:
We've been here in Green Bay since
the day after graduation and I really
like the town. If any town is crazy
about any one thing it's this town
and the subject football. The local
fans (there are some 55,000 persons
in Green Bay and its environs) know
every football player that has been
or has prospects of being a member:
of 'any team in the National Profes-
sional Football League.
They really climb onto you and
when the team loses they all take
it as a personal insult. Don't
get me wrong but the town wants
a winner, and if you doubt that
they get one, get some of those
statistics out.
So far we have played five games
and have won four and lost one. The
first loss came last Sunday and the
score (believe it or not) was 27-23 in
favor of Cleveland. We whipped
Pittsburgh, 17-7, the Southern All-
Stars at Dallas,'Texas, 31-20 (for fur-
ther dope on that game ask 'red
Janke-he played for the Stars). The
temperature was 114 degrees by day
and, believe it or not 92 degrees to
96 degrees the night we played. (Ed.
note: Janke, last year's tackle and

captain, is coaching high school foot- Pearson Stops

club lost its first game.) Rhinelanders

State's Wrecking Back

Then we whipped the Chicago
Cardinals 14-10 ,and then really
put the'"pressure on to beat the
Chicago Bears, 21-16-
This game is really much tougher
than college ball. The backs areall
good and on most clubs there are few
weak spots in the line. I played over
one-half of the first two games, one-
quarter of the Cardinal game, and
since -then I have been playing Sit-
ting Bull on the Bench. (l d. note:
as we understand it, this is a peculiar
situation. Competent observers and
some of his teammates feel that
Brennan is good enough to be play-
ing and that he will stick.)'
We started the season with 48
men and the squad is now re-
duced to 31. That's the roster
for the rest of the season. We
play eight more league games
and one exhibition against one
of the American League clubs.


With Two Hits


Smacks Homer,
To Pace Yank's
Over Walters

I like pro ball and hope to play
at least another season. The offense
of all these clubs is terirific (the evi-
dence I think lies in the score.) If
you are one or two touchdowns be-
hind you never let up, especially with
two passers such as we have-Arnie
Herber of St. Regis and Cecil Isbell,
late of Purdue-and receivers like
Don Hutson (Ed. note: of Dixie How-
ell to Hutson fame at Alabama and
the Rose Bowl) and Carl Mullineaux
of Utah State. They really do tricks
with that apple.
We have high hopes (despite
our Cleveland loss) of getting in-
to the play-offs and perhaps cop-
ping the flag. In that event we
will be playing ball until Febru-
ary. We would go to the Coast
and perhaps (if the war quiets
down) Hawaii.
I have been reading great things
about our team at Michigan this
year and really hope to see them be-
fore the season ends. They have the
stuff and I, for one, wish them good
Many of the boys I'm now playing
with were enemies of mine in col-
lege. Larry Buhler, Andy Uram,
Charlie Schultz-all of Minnesota-
and Balasz of Iowa are only a few.
Bud Svendsen, one of our centers,
also caused us some real headaches.
Well, that's the dope. And per-
haps I'll see you in Detroit Dec. 3
(reserved seats $2.20 and $3.30).

Then, just when fingers were
"crossed" for Monte to become the
first flinger in World Series history
to hurl a no-hit, no-run game, the
spell was broken. Big Ernie Lom-
bardi, the slow-footed but dangerous
hitting catcher of the National League
Champions, stepped up with one out
in the eighth inning and lined the
first pitch to him over second base
for a single. After that, Bill Wer-

off Berger's glove for a double, and
Rolfe came rolling hogne.
Joe DiMaggio, who was the out-
fielding star of this game, topped
a ball down the third base line and
beat it out for a hit when Walters1

"as ready as we'll ever be."
"We've been working 'for a long
time," Crisler added, "what we need
now is to play a' game."
The ever-feared over-confidence
wasn't worrying the head coach. Thea
Spartans are pitting their hopes on
surprising an arrogant Wolverine out-
fit, but according to Crisler his squad
certainly doesn't seem "over-confi-
Yesterday the Michigan squad lost
the services of Bill Luther, one of the
best passers on the team, when the
reserve halfback collided with Herc
Renda in the signal drills. Luther
fractured his cheek bone and will be
out for several weeks.
It also appeared certain that half-
back Freddie Trosko would be un-
able to make up his ineligibility be-
fore the Michigan State game.
Tickets sales for the battle con-
tinued to remain ahead of last year's
advance sales when 73,589 spectators
watched the Wolverines defeat the
Spartans, 14-0.
According to Harry Tillotson, ticket
manager, all the seats between the
goal posts have already been sold.

Promising Freshman
Back Injures Knee
Ray Sowers, one of the more prom-
ising backfield men on the freshman'
football squad, will be out of compe-
tition for the rest of the season due
to a loose ligament in his knee, anin-
jury suffered in scrimmage last week.
Sowers, a graduate of Bay City
Central who rated all-State recogni-
tion last year, will probably be op-
erated on during the Christmas holi-.
days, Coach Ray Courtright revealed
One of the biggest backs on the
squad, Sowers camne to Michigan with
the reputation of being a good triple
threat man. He showed only his run-
ning ability in practice so far, but is
credited with being a better than
average passer and punter.

Bill Kennedy, Michigan State's
sophomore- right halfback who
snared a pass on the goal line for
the Spartan's first touchdown
against Wayne, would rather knock
down would-be tacklers than score
touchdowns. He is a fine blocker,
tackler, and ball carrier.
Dickey bounced a single through
second, scoring Keller. George Sel-
kirk grounded out to end the spree.
Dahlgren followed this scoring
splurge up in the fourth inning with
the first home run of the series, a
long high loft which barely soared
over Berger's outstretched glove and
into the left field boxes.

it will be the thirty-fourth time that'
the Spartan's have invaded the Wol-
verines' lair with the hope of crush-
ing their old enemies underfoot.
Since the rivalry began Michigan
has emerged victorious in 24 games,
while State has -managed to chalk up
six games in their win column. Four
of these wins came during the lean,
years from 1934 to 1938.

whom a victory against Michigan was
a far-off dream hardly to be hoped'
After their game of 1907 when
Coach Fielding Yost's renowned Wol-
verines trounced them to the tune of
46-0, one newspaper comment read:
"The Farmers' linemen certainly
received a strenuous sample of what
Michigan can do in the way of fall
ploughing. It must have been a
harrowing experience."
Ten years later, the tune hadn't
changed, and Michigan walked away
with a 26-0 win over the Farmers
from East Lansing.
At the start of the 1932 season, the
Wolverines went into the State fray

evidently didn't mean much to the

their old rivals from East Lansing.
State was now in the driver's seat,
and it remained there right up until

is a well-known story.
