"My understanding is the trouble
was all between Oscar Vitt and the
players," Peckinpaugh calmly com-
mented today. "Vitt is gone now, so
I don't see why a new manager would
have any difficulties."
Peckinpaugh was discussing a
Cleveland news story quoting "two
usually reliable sources" as saying
Peck - fired as Cleveland manager
in 1933 because the team was losing
- had been chosen to pilot the 1941
"I hope that's right," the former
shortstop said. "I would be glad to
have the job. Right now you know
as much about it as I do. I haven't
signed a contract and I haven't talked
with Mr. Bradley (President Alva
Bradley) recently. I know I'm still in
Bradley plans to announce the
new manager next Tuesday. He reit-

Dr. George Hauser, Minnesota's craf-
ty line coach, has manufactured a
tremendous and powerful forward
wall for Bernie Bierman's outfit.
It's a front line that averages 215
pounds per man and still moves fast.
That's what Michigan must batter
through tomorrow in order to' con-
tinue on its merry path of destruction.
In the backfield, the Gophers boast
their own Touchdown Twins, two
flashy climax runners, the Faribault
(Minn.) Flyer, Bruce Smith and gal-
loping George Franck. All told, this
colorful, pair have led the powerful

Franck is the speed demon, and so
he should be. For that's the same
Franck who starred on the Gopher
track team and ran a :09.7 century
in Big Ten competition.

ment that kept him on the bench
during the early Gopher encouters,
Smith, the blond junior with twink-
ling feet and a steady passing arm,
started moving in the Buckeye game
and has been a potent threat in
the Bierman backfield ever since.
The other two starting spots in
the Minnesota backfield will be filled
tomorrow by Bob Paffrath, a half-
back who has been switched to the
.signal-calling quarterback assign-
ment, and Bob Sweiger at full.
Paffrath, a senior from Redwood
Falls (Minn.), is a thundering blocker
and a strong defensive back, while

'Evy' Will WeL
Captain Forest Evashevski has a
new set of shoulder pads.
Ordinarily, this wouldn't be con-
sidered unusual. But these new
shoulder pads are very important in
the minds of Wolverine followers.
Just one week ago, Evashevski was
to undergo an operation to remove a
bone chip from his shoulder and was
considered lost for the Minnesota
game. Now, because of these special
pads, Evy will be in there in top
This particular pad, or brace, has
a high arch which completely encir-
cles Evashevski's shoulder. But at no
point does it come into direct con-
tact with the bruised member. The
pad is specificially constructed so that
all the shock of contact is absorbed
by the chest and the back. In other
words, there is no pressure whatso-
ever upon the shoulder.
With the kind of blocks Evashevski
throws, it seems as if his back and
shoulder would be plenty sore and
weakened after a tough scrimmage
game. When questioned after prac-

rice Thursday in the locker room, Evy
said, "My shoulder is swell, it's my

Sure enough, when he stripped;
there were big splotches of red cover-
ing his back and chest.
When asked if he thought this new
discomfiture would affect his play-
ing as much as a sore shoulder would,
Evy laughed. "No, this won't do any-
thing but make me uncomfortable.
The only thing I'm worried about is
whether or not I'll choke to death

a -teal test. There's no doubt that
the Gophers will be aiming for that
horse collar. Let's hope it's worth
the $17 it cost.
