Gridders Rest Before Starting PreparationFor Mini


Tough Half Of Schedule Nears
As Wolverines Head For Title

Minnesota 34, Iowa 6! Northwest-
ern 20, Minnesota 7! Cornell 21, Ohio
State 7!
What do the scores of these games
played last Saturday mean to Michi-
gan? Just this: following an open
date this week-end the Wolverines
must engage Minnesota, Northwest-
en, and Ohio on consecutive week-
ends, and the scores posted on Sat-
urday indicatr that the road to an
undefeated season will be strewn with
boulders, three big boulders.
Michigan has one advantage which
it might be able to capitalize on.
While the Wolves are enjoying a
well-earned rest this week-end North-
western and Minnesota will tangle

at Evanston. The following week a
well-rested Michigan team will face
a battle-scarred Minnesota eleven
Battle-scarred or not, the Gophers
have a fast stepping backfield headed
by George Franck and Bruce Smith
and a 210-pound line with sopho-
mores Wildung and Odsun being out-
standing. ,
The following weekend will find the
Northwestern squad in Ann Arbor
ready to do battle, with a galaxy of
stars including Bill De Correvant,
Don Clawson, Alf "Lil' Abner" Bau-
man, Paul Soper, and Ollie Hahen-
.stein. If Northwestern and Michigan
can remain undefeated up until this
game, November 16 will be a red-let-
ter day. A contemplated Harmon-
De Correvant meeting would draw
more fans through the turnstiles than
the much-publicized, but ill-fated
Harmon-Reagan duel.
Michigan wil close its season at
Columbus against 'Ohio State. You
can bet that other dollar that the
boys from the capitol city will be
out for blood. They will be striving
to salvage some glory from an other-
wise disastrous season. Add to this
the fact that the Buckeyes will be
out to avenge last year's humiliat-
ing last-minute defeat at the hands
of the Wolverines and you can readi-
ly realize what a task awaits Michigan
on November 23.

Five Players
Found Injured
In Penn Game
. Open Date Gives Varsity
Time To Reach Top
Shape For Minnesota
Coach Fritz Crisler gave his squad
a much deserved rest yesterday which
was well received by the group as a
Captain Evashevski, Reuben Kelto,
Al Wistert, Dave Nelson and George
Ceithaml particularly enjoyed the
respite as they were the chief casual-
ties as a result of the Penn game
Both Evashevski and Kelto are
temporarily incapacitated with the
same type of injury, a severe bruise'
at the union of the collar bone and
shoulder blade. In all probability
they will take it easy for several days
but should be in top shape for the
Minnesota game two weeks hence.
Wistert and Davie Nelson, ironical-_
ly enough, have similar injuries too.
They both have severe bruises around
the knee joints, Wistert on the outside1
and Nelson on the inside. According
to trainer Ray Roberts, both injuries
will react favorably after a few days
It was discovered late yesterday
that George Ceithaml sprained an
ankle early in the game, yet played
on it throughout.
Too much praise can't be dished
out towards the sophomore quarter-I
back, who filled in so stoutly after
Evashevski was forced out. Not only
did he block and back up the line1
well, but he exhibited the type of
courage (guts in football terminology)
playing as he did with such a badt
ankle, that augers well for the Wol-
verine cause next fall.
Movies of the Penn game will be
run over today for the squad's bene-t
fit, and mistakes and suggestions wille
be pointed and handed out in a gen-
erous fashion, no doubt, by the
coaching staff.1
There isn't a man on the team
who wouldn't figuratively give hisF
right arm in return for a victory over
those Minneapolis Golden Gophers,F
come the 9th of November.
Phi Beta Delta Win
Melvin Colvin led his Phi Beta Del-s
ta mates to a 12-10 win over Thetag
Chi in the feature of a five-game
fraternity speedball card yesterday.
Colvin counted seven points to topi
the day's scorers, while Eric Wrightb
made four for the losers.t
The other tilts were all one-sided 1
affairs, with Pete Wege tallying four
points for Chi Psi as his team beata
Lambda Chi Alpha, 8-4, in the onlyh
other fray that came close to beings
a contest.
In the remaining games, Phi Sigma
Delta licked Delta Upsilon, 9-2; Phi
Kappa Psi swamped Phi Gamma Del-c
ta, 12-1, as Jim Gunn scored sixq
points; and Beta Theta Pi took anh
8-2 victory over Phi Kappa Tau.
There will be an important meet-
ing for all varsity and freshman
swimmers at 5 p.m. today at the
Sports Building pool.

May We Quote Youe. .
America's foremost sports writers
were in town last week.
They've come and gone, those type-
writer wizards, but their descriptions
of Saturday's gridiron clash will live
on. Here are a few of them:
Henry McLemore, United Press . ..
"Tommy Harmon, a combination of
poetry of motion and you know what
on wheels, gave a 60-minute show of
power and speed today. . -
"Harmon, the chief target of the
fierce hitting Penn line all afternoon.
was running just as wild at the fin-
ish as he was at the start. His jersey
(torn, his pants ripped, his face
smeared with dirt, Tommy roared to
17 and 15-yard gains just before the
game ended.
"If Penn had dented his whipcord
and whalebone armor, he didn't show
Gayle Talbot, Associated Press ..
"Any doubts that the Michigan
star (Harmon) would retain the
All-American laurels accorded him
last season were erased as he
turned in one of the most brilliant
performances of his career."
Robert F. Kelley, New York Times
. . "It's true what they say about
"For 60 minutes while almost 60,000
persons peered through the haze of a1
pleasant Autumn afternoon in the
Wolverines' huge stadium, the black-
haired Harmon played football of a
type that few individuals have played
on any gridiron, and when it was all
over he had to fight his tired way
through a queque of clutching admir-
ers to reach the shower."
John Sabo, the Detroit Free Press
"The Michigan All-American
played like a human dynamo. Hee
was spectacular. He was consistent
He was an iron man with a mission1
-to crush Pennsylvania. And crush
Penn he did."
Which all goes to show you, this
kid Harmon has possibilities. Some- v
day he may even be famous.
* *: *c
Poor Al Wistert. We felt so sorry c
for him the other eve. They had to
send him to the hospital after theF
game. He was sick. Yep, so sick.
Well, anyway, soon after he arrived y
there, the husky tackle had otherI
ideas. He had a bruised knee, sure,
but he also had a date. So when
things quieted down, when the lights
were low and the nurses busyhe
climbed into his clothes, the same
clothes that he made 'Jeep' Mehaffey
help him put on earlier in the day,
slipped out of the window to the fire-
escape and off to freedom.
The date was fine, Al relates. It
lasted way into the morning. Then
came his return to sickness. He
quietly and carefully moved up the!
hospital steps till he reached what
he thought was his floor.. He was
wrong though. He was on the fourth ;
instead of the fifth.
He was caught. As he tried to
get up one more floor along came a
nurse. She motioned to him to
come along with her. "I'll get you
to your right room," she said.

Take Honors
In Pentathlon
Working off steam, sweat and ener-
gy, the varsity track team has been
enmeshed in the throes of the Second
Annual Fall Pentathlon at Ferry
Field for the past four weeks. De-
vised by Coach Ken Doherty last
year as a means of keeping the men
in good physical condition and keep-
ing their interest at a peak until
they move inside with the advent of
cold weather, the event proved so suc-
cessful that it was decided to make
an annual affair of it.
This year the squad was divided
into two teams, the T-Bones, man-
aged by Jeff Hall, varsity hurdler,
and the Porterhouses, managed by
Karl Wisner, miler. Inspired by the
fact that the losing team would have
to provide the steaks for the win-
ners in the annual Steak Roast,
which was held Sunday night, both
teams strove to make a fight of it.
And the race rolled right down to
the finish line before the winner was
determined. The Porterhouse super-
men trod roughshodly over the lowly
T-Bones by a score of 88,397 to 86,655.
The scores consisted of the total
points made in all events in accord-
ance with the Pentathlon scoring
Sunday night the affair was held
for which all of the men had been
working so hard for so long a time.
Under the personal supervision of
Coach Doherty, both teams gathered
in the Arboretum to indulge in a lit-
tle horseplay under the guise of at-
tending a formal steak roast.
It should be of interest to note
that the men who amassed the most
points on both teams were sopho-
mores, something which augers well
for the hopes of future Michigan
track champions.
He brushed past her, yelped "never
mind," and flew back to the fire-
escape. Up one more floor, down the
hall with all the speed he had during
the afternoon struggle, and into his
Off went the clothes. And with a
gainer and a half dive, into the bed
went his 212 form, bad knee and all.
The head nurse opened the door
and looked in. Al turned toward the
other side and moaned. She left.
She got a call from the floor below.
Back she went.
"And now, Mr. Wistert, where have
you been?"
