Forest Evashevski, Coach Crisler's ace field-general, blocker and
pass-receiver, will be in the pilot's seat today attempting to dent the
Iowa defense with his bag of Michigan plays, as the Wolverines open
their Big Ten season against Eddie Anderson's vaunted Hawkeyes.

Kinnick Vs. Harmon
While Michigan is an 8-5 favorite,
the game might resolve itself into a
duel between Kinnick and Harmon,
both of whom are outstanding candi-
dates for all-American honors. Two
years ago, Kinnick was all-Confer-
ence quarterback but was harassed
by injuries last season. Harmon, as
a sophomore last year, was all-Con-
ference halfback and has been'
boomed for national honors. Both are
"bomb" throwers par excellence. Kin-
nick has a heavy edge in kicking but
Harmon's speed and power makes
him the most feared runner in the
Conference. The Iowa halfback drop
kicks extra points for the Hawkeyes
andconverted his firstseven at-
tempts. Harmon will kick off for
Michigan and may place kick for fhe
points after touchdown.
Iowa, in its first year under An-
derson, has stressed speed and more
speed. Dickson claims that Iowa has
A faster backfield than Michigan and
that one of the threatening aspects
of Kinnick as a runner is his ability
to lateral to Russ Busk who tails
him on all punt returns. The Wol-
verines know about this but whether
or not they can stop him remains to
be seen.

NEW YORK, Oct. 13.-(R)-Be-
hind a nicely-balanced offense feat-
uring intersectional games on the one
hand and backyard scraps on the
other, college football really shifts
into high gear tomorrow.
Intersectionally, the day's stand-
out should be the meeting between
Pitt's de-emphasized but fast-mov-
ing Panthers and the Blue Devils of
Duke University. Notre Dame-South-
ern Methodist, Texas-Oklahoma, Tu-
lane-Fordham and Southern Califor-

Two Big Ten Scraps
The Big Ten will offer the strongest
sectional lineup. Leading the list
are two games in which both parties
have title aspirations: Ohio State-
Northwestern and, Minnesota-Fur-
due. Cornell will make its first bid
for Eastern Ivy League honors against
Princeton; Mississippi State will seek
its second Southeastern Conference
scalp, Auburn's; Baylor will open its
Southwest Conference campaign
against Arkansas, and California,
knocked off and down by two "out-
siders," will have Oregon's winning'
streak to crack in its Pacific Coast
Conference bow.t
60,000 For Bucks-Wildcats
At Columbus, incubator of grand-
stand quarterbacks, they're counting
on a turnout of 60,000 to see the
Buckeyes play vengeance-bent North-
western. A similar crowd is expected
at Los Angeles for Southern Cali-
fornia-Illinois, and these should be
the day's high attendance figures.

Out On A Limb Again
Here it is Saturday again and in
spite of last week's disturbing upsets,
we still got a dollar. Equanimity un-
disturbed, we return to the crow's
Due to space limitations, how-
ever,'we have been forced to re-
vert to our own predictions, in-
stead of the mass selections of
the Ann Arbor Sports Writers and
Prognosticators Association. So
far, in 40 games and guesses,
we've hit 25, missed 12 and had
three ties. Counting the ties as
incorrect the percentile is .625.
Prof. Litkendenis offered to help us
with these selections but we gracious-
ly declined. We can find our own
way to the booby hatch. Here's the
way we take the first turn: ,
Michigan-Iowa: This is the straight
dope. Michigan will tie up the Kin-
nick to Prasse combination and hold
them to one touchdown. And then
the Wolverine battery, Harmon to
Frutig will ring up a few strikes. Our
advice to the spectators-watch Har-
mon tomorrow.. He's out to break
that three-yard line jinx that twice
kept him from scoring last Saturday.
And, he's going to be in the tailback
slot an awful lot.
Harvard-Chicago: Here's a battle
of giant intellect. Chicago can
match the Crimson in every art but
one-the art of playing football. The
Maroons, surnamed the Hapless, will
quote Shakespeare to the Easterners
but they'll be met with a bit of
ornithology out of Dick Harlow. Iar-
vard will take it on the wing. Chi-
cago will take in on the lam.
Illinois-Southern California: Wally
Weber went all the way to the coast
for this one but he might just aswell
have stayed home. We could have
told him the result. He just didn't
ask us. In case Wally should see
this edition before reaching the land
of sunshine, he'd find that USC will
spoil Zuppke's trip and make him
sorry he bought a new hat. How-
ever, if Zup's hat is black, it'll be
Purdue-Minnesota: Just yesterday
we learned that Purdue's Mike Bye-
lene's name was pronounced Biele-
anee. With this fortification behind
us, Purdue is our choice. The word
comes that Minnesota is big, tough,
and dumb. Purdue's Three B's,
Brock, Byelene and Brown, will drive
them deeper into a mental stupor.
Indiana-Wisconsin: How did this
game sneak in here? This game is
so tough that only the Litkendenis
system can solve it. Q1-Q3 is equal
to the difference between the twoI
teams. The question is-what's the

difference? That's what we say-
what's the difference. Wisconsin.
Northwestern-Ohio Sta'te: Francis
Schmidt will find that while the
Purple pull their pants on the same'
way the Buckeyes do they don't pull
their punches. A snarling Wildcat
will show its pre-season promise at
Ohio's expense.
Pittsburgh-Duke: Pittsburgh has a
great team this year. They have a
fine back in Cassiano and a new
spirit. Duke whipped them last year
in the rain but Eric Tipton isn't
back to do the clutch kicking. It
looks like a great Pitt year. Enough,
said: Duke will win.
Army-Columbia: Now that John
Roosevelt has requested that he be
named a mere major instead of a
major-general, the Army can't lose.
Why the uplift in morale is worth 10
points by the latest quotations. Be-
cause of the younger Roosevelt's self-
denial, the Army must show its ap-
preciation with a victory.
Pennsylvania-Yale: Penn has ohe
of the strongest teams in the East
and the strongest in the Ivy League.
Un-Ducky Pond has executed a blitz-
krieg, Yale is still in the East and in
the Ivy League. Therefore, by defi-
nition, Penn is superior to the Elis.-
In the others, we'll take Marquette
over Michigan State, Notre Dame
over SMU, Brown over Colgate,
Nebraska over Iowa State, Holy Cross
over Georgia, North Carolina' over
N.Y.U., Texas over Oklahoma, Tulane
over Fordham, Texas A.M. over Vil-
lanova, California over Oregon, UCLA
over Stanford, Dartmouth over Navy,
Cornell over Princeton and mind over
Bill Stern, ace sportscaster who'll
put today's game overNBC, thinks
that he's never seen a stadium pretti-
er than this one. He rates this and
the Dose Bowl as the two best in the
Stern, incidentally, has an impro-
vised broadcasting booth in the south
corner of the press box. It was con-
structed forhe pebroadcast but when
the other sportscasters see it, it's our
guess that they'll all be bidding for
it for future games.

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 13.-(A)-
Henry Armstrong, world's wealter-
weight champion, knocked out How-
ard Scott, Washington, D.C., in the
second round of a scheduled 10-round
title bout tonight. Scott never had
a chance.I
The dusky little champion moved
in to the attack from the first bell
He drove Scott about the ring with a
shower of lefts and rights but the
Washington boy fought back gamely,
although outclassed.
Just before the end of the first
round, the welterweight champion
cut loose with a short left hook
squarely to Scott's chin and the lat-
ter tumbled to the floor. Up at the
count of nine he back-pedalled for
the remainder. of the round.
Weaving and bobbing, Armstrong
increased the pace as the second
round started and shellacked Scott
with a series of rights and lefts. Com-
ing out of a mixup near the center of
the ring, the titleholder drove a short
right to the jaw and the fight was
