Eight Seniors

To Face Northwestern In Final Home Game

Flash Back,-. .
It happened just two years ago.
Northwestern and Michigan were
trading gridiron punches in the Stad-
ium. Neither squad had scored. It was
the third quarter. The Wildcats had
the ball on the Wolverine 37.
Ollie Hahnenstein faded back
and shot a pass to Bernie Jefferson,
Northwestern's Michigan-bred half-
back. The colored star, behind aI
host of Purple blockers, galloped in-
to the clear down the left sidelines.
Only Tom Harmon was there to
stop him, but the Wildcat inter-
ference had plowed Harmon out of
the path.
With a tremendous burst of speed,
however, the Hoosier Hurricane came
from heaven knows where and smoth-
ered Jefferson on the Michigan 11.
First and ten on the 14. The press-
ing Wolverines were offside on the
very first play, and it was first and!
five on the six.
Then came one of, the most thrilling
five minutes in Michigan gridiron his-
tory. Battling to remain in the Big
Ten race, the Wolverines unleashed
all their fury.,
Heikkinen stopped Wildcat Jack
Ryan's smash with no gain. Ryan

picked up the 18 inches. Just a yard
left to score.
McGurn plowed for two feet .
stopped within a whisker of the goal
line. Ryan cut back over tackle on
the next play, but Wally Hook broke
through to bury him under back on
the two.
Jefferson tried the other tackle on
third down, and Ralph Fritz and Bill!

to go.
The; Wildcats uncorked a pass play.
Ryan took the reverse from McGurn
and shot the pigskin toward Capt.
Cleo Diehl in the end zone. With
split second timing, maacap Norm

into the air and picked out the flying

broke through the Michigan front
line, and all Norm could do was

He picked up steam and blockers
and raced down the right sidelines.
Purucker kept charging past mid-
field . . . past the 40 . . . past the 30
. His path seemed clear. But through,
the Wolverines blockers drifted Ryan
and then McGurn. The fleet Mich-
igan ball carier swerved desperately
to avoid them, but it was of little use.
Down he went on the 25.
That's the way Michigan and
Northwestern battled to a scoreless
tie two years ago.

Season Is Over For Milo;
Slight Brain Concussion
Will Need Time Cure
When Michigan's gridmen trot off
Ferry Field at the conclusion of a
light drill this afternoon and head for
their usual Friday night hideaway
at Barton Hills Country Club, it will
be the last time for eight Wolverine
seniors who will be performing in
their final game tomorrow against j

Last For Harmon And Evy
Winding up their home grid ca-
reers in the Stadium will be Capt.
Forest Evashevski, Tom Harmon, Ed
Frutig, Joe Rogers, Ed Czak Harry
Kohl, Ralph Fritz, and Paul Kromer.
Another senior veteran, husky Milo
Sukup, will be forced to watch the
Wildcat clash fromn the sidelines, for
the slight brain concussion which he
first received in the Illinois game and
which kept him out of last week's
Minnesota tilt, has cut short his in-
tercollegiate football career, and he
will be unable to play either in tomor-
row's contest or against Ohio State
next week.
Drilling intensively on their aerial
attack yesterday Fritz Crisler's crew
worked out awhile in the vast Yost
Field House, then romped outside to
brave the cold blasts. Tom Harmon
and Cliff Wise spent considerable
time whipping passes around the
field in preparation for the invading

A sellout tomorrow appeared a vir-
tual certainty with 70,000 seats al-

weather conditions remain favorable.
Setting up camp at Dearborn,
Coach Lynn Waldorf will run his
powerful Purple squad through a
light practice there this afternoon,
and then tuck his charges into bed
early tonight.


The Varsity and freshman track
teams closed the tall outdoor season
yesterday with cross-country runs
around the University golf course.
Bill Ackerman finished with the
best time of any of the Varsity run-
ners over the three and a half mile
course, 18:57. Karl Wisner ant John-
ny McKean, the other men who were
not given handicaps, finished with
the next best times.
The runners who placed first, sec-
ond, and third were all given handi-
caps. These men were Jim O'Malley.

All of these trackmen received med-

When Coach Lynn Waldorf of Northwestern imparts his football
wizardry to his captain and quarterback, Dick Richards, he knows the

baffling deception as if he were calling the signals himself.

John Gillis, relay star on Matt
Mann's championship swimming
team, traded his swimming suit for
a pair of skates and a stick yesterday
as he decided to give up treading wa-
ter for his first love-hockey.
The tall, powerful Hibbing, Minn.
junior was on Michigan's 400-yard
relay team that stroked their way
through everything this country had
to offer last year.
But the glamour of being on a
national championship outfit faded
for the Wolverine giant. "Hockey is
a lot more fun," he explained. "Be-
sides, there wasn't much more for
me in swimming anyway."
The new addition to the Wolver-
ine puckchasers will be a welcome
one. With an undermanned squad,
Lowrey can well use a lad who
played on the same front line with
such collegiate stars as Haydon
Pickering and Frank St. Vincent, for-
merly at Minnesota.
There aren't any high school teams
in the heart of the hockey country
where he lives, John revealed. "Eve-
ryone plays in the city recreational
leagues. That's where I started."
I 1

So it appears that what is Matt
Mann's loss is Eddie Lowrey's gain.
If Mann can find a capable replace-
ment for Gillis on his tank squad,
and he should be able to with the
wealth of material on hand, then
John Gillis' experiment will be a
thing to watch.
He might mean the difference be-
tween a mediocre and a brilliant
hockey season for Michigan. Time
alone will tell. At any rate, the
change from a sleek, smooth-strok-
ing swimmer into a whiijling, hard-
charging hockey player is one of
the queerest switches in sports.
