was not certain of starting Lockard
at the left half spot, it seemed prob-
able last night that he would get the
nod over either Davey Nelson or Paul
Kromer, the other two candidates.
There is another interesting phase
to this clash. It brings together the
products of two of the greatest line
coaches in the country, burly Burt
Ingwersen of Northwestern, and Clar-

Bolstered by Alf Bauman, the 215
pound all-American prospect, at the

Wolverine Grid Seniors To Make
Final Stadium Appearance Today

(Continued from Page 1)

Wildcats Pack Backfield Dynamite ..*


... brilliant tackle

(Tcd.y's co umn is written by Ed Walsh, sports editor of the Daily Northwestern.)t
Taking to heart the old maxim, "A team that won't be licked can't be
licked," Northwestern's Wildcats have fought their way to victory in five
out of six games this fall.
And so when the fighting 'Cats trot into the Stadium today Michigan's
mighty Wolverines can expect anything from a team which plays for
the breaks and usually gets them.
Spearheading the Northwestern attack will be three packages
of dynamite in the form of the triple threat wizardry of Bill de
Correvont, Red Hahnenstein, and Paul Soper. Operating from the
left half position this trio form what is probably one of the most
consistent scoring combinations in the conference.
Offensively this threesome has sparked the Purple attack to five
victories. de Correvont through his passing and running won the Ohio
State game. Hahnenstein passed effectively and ran as well as any back
in the country to win the Indiana battle and Paul Soper, recovered
from injuries, stole the show in the Illinois game.
The combined efforts of the three aided by other Purple backs in the
persons of Don Clawson, powerhouse line plunger, Ike Kepford and Tuffy
Chambers, elusive right halves, have brought respect from even as pow-
erful a team as Minnestoa's Gopher's. Outweighing the Wildcats 24
pounds to a man in the line, the Gold9n. avalanche was stemmed in the
second half when a spirited Northwestern team roared back to outplay
them in every department of the game.
Sports writers from all over the nation who have watched the
Wildcats rate them the best team for men that they have seen this
year. In every game the 'Cats have been on the short end of weight,
experiencc, and reserves, but they have fougli back with a fighting
spirit, the like of which Northwestern's fans have not seen since
the championship team of '36.'
Making the trip to Ann Arbor will be five Michigan boys, three of
whom have figured consistently in the Northwestern attack this year.
Paul Soper and Ike Kepford of Muskegon, and George Zorich of Wakefield,
two backs and a lineman respectively, are anxious to give the Wolverines
"the works". Reserve linemen Jim and John Kloote, of Grand Rapids,
are other Michigan boys.
Especially the 'Cats are looking forward to the game because they believe
they can stop Harmon and make the fans forget the "Hoosier Hammer"
with an attack of their own. But they are fully respectful of "Terrible
Tommy" and expect to meet the greatest back they have faced this
year. In addition, they have heard about Bob Ingalls and Bob Westfall,
rated outstanding linebackers, "Tank" Evashevski, Harmon's* stream-
lined blocker, and Ed Frutig, the great end. Certainly this Northwestern
team will not enter the game overconfident. They know they are coming
up against one of Michigan's best teams.
From end to end the 'Cats have power. Al Butherus and Jim
Smith, regular flankmen, are two superior ends. Big Alf Bauman,
"the Ox," and Corne Aarts, can match any other tackles in the Con-
ference, George Zorich and Joe Lokane are very consistent at the guards,
and Paul Hiemenz has made people wonder why he understudied All-
American Johnny Haman, for two years. Wisconsin's coach says
about Joe Lokanc "if there's a better guard in the country I'd like
to see him."
Matching your "Kiski" prep products, Northwestern has the Austin
high wonder boys who drew 120,000 people to Soldier's field in Chicago.
Included in this entourage are flashy Bill de Correvont, the tough luck
kid, whose play this year was beginning to make critics duck for cover until
he incurred an ankle injury in the Wisconsin game. Alf Bauman, giant
lineman. "Chopper" Skor, 160 pound quarter back, "Coke" Madsen, left
half, George Maggos guard and Bob Motl, end.
, In successive weeks, Northwestern and Michigan have played Minnesota
in the game of the week. Today, Minnesota is out of the picture and the
two teams who outplayed Minnesota battle in what is likely to be the
best Big Ten game of 1940.

verines would once again take their
brilliant place in the nation's grid
horizon, when the phrase, "Cham-
pions of the West," would once more
be a proud boast rather than a hol-
low mockery.
In the initial tilt of the 1938 cam-
paign against a powerful crew of
Michigan State Spartans came the
first blast-the first indication of
impending football might. New
names such as Forest Evashevski,
Tom Harmon, Ralph Fritz, Paul Kro-
mer, Ed Frutig flashed into promi-
nence. The Spartans, led by the
great Johnny Pingel, went back to
East Lansing, a thoroughly' beaten
outfit, 14-0.
Since that crisp fall afternoon, on
which Crisler and his sensational
sophomores underwent through their
first baptism of fire for Michigan so
auspiciously, an impressive record has
been compiled. Spearheaded by these
same men who will bow out of the
home football picture today, the Wol-
verines have won 17 games, lost but
four, and tied one.

I Zivic Fight
Al Davis Is Disqualified
For LowPutching
NEW YORK, Nov. 15.-( P)-FritzieI
Zivic, recently crowned World Wel-
terweight Champion from Pittsburgh,
was awarded a victory over Al (Bum-
my) Davis of Brooklyn tonight in
Madison Square Garden when the
referee disqualified the Brooklynite
for low punching. Each fighter
weighed 1472.
Before a screaming near-sellout
crowd, Davis, who has been a highly
unpopular fighter, at best, in local
rings, swung' half a dozen low blows
at the Pittsburgher, and for each
punch was warned by Referee Billy
When he persisted in continuing
these punches, the referee ended the
bout in 2 minutes, 34 seconds of the
second round.
When Cavanaugh pulled them
apart and stopped the fight, Davis
tore from the referee's grasp, dashed
at Zivic, and the fight broke out
again. Davis was seen to swing his
left foot in the melee, and Cavan-
augh said, "He kicked me."
The fighting continued until police
and Zivic's handlers climbed into the
ring to pull the boxing champion and1
his rival apart to the tune of boos
from the crowd.I
