Grid Season Against Buckeyes

Wolverines Capture
Honorary Places
Any Other Big Ten


Six Wolverine gridders were award-
ed first or second team positions
and still another received honorable
mention on the United Press All-Big
Ten football team announced yester-
All-American Tom Harmon, Ralph
Fritz, and Ed Frutig were placed at
their respective halfback, guard and
end positions on the UP's mythical
aggregation, Captain and quarter-
back Forest Evashevski, fullback Bob
Westfall, and tackle Al Wistert were
awarded berths on the second team,
while Milo Sukup; star Mchigan

since mid-season, received honorable

romises "fair and slightly cooler"
weather, and if there is rain, it "will
be extremely light."
The Buckeyes are reported to be
in top physical condition which is one
factor to their advantage. Charlie
Anderson, pass-snagging end who was
injured last Saturday in the Illinois
game, will be ready to start.
In the backfield, Schmidt also has
his problems solved. Both Dick Fish
er, in and out of the lineup this year
with shoulder troubles, and Jim
Strausbaugh, who *has been ham-
pered by an ailing ankle, will be
available for left halfback duties.
Scott's Career Ends
What means more to the Buckeyes,
however, is the fact that tomorrow's
clash ends the great career of Don
Scott, ace quarterback and ball car-
rier. Against Michigan, the dynamic
Canton, Ohio, lad will make his fin-
al bid for All-American honors, which
most experts conceded to him before
the season started but changed their
minds about since then because of
the team's dismal showing.
Tonight they are boasting here of
Scott's brilliant quadruple threat
abilities. They call him a powerful
runner, accurate passer, splendid
punter and deyastating blocker. If

this all rings true, Michigan is in for
a fine showing when the Buckeye
ace sings his swan song in the stad-
Besides Scott, Schmidt will start
Capt. Jim Langhurst, pile-driving
fullback, Strausbaugh and Tom Kin-
kaid in the Ohio backfield.
The Buckeyes' forward wall averag-
ing 209 pounds will outweight the
Wolverines 12 pounds to the man.
In The Line
At ends Schmidt will use Anderson
and Frank Clair. Thorton Dixon and
Jack Stephenson will open at tackles;
Ed Bruckner and Bill Nosker at
guards and Claude White at center.
Over in the Wolverine camp to-
night, it seemed possible that Forest
Evashevski, mule-shouldered block-
ing quarterback might not start his
last game for Michigan. The Wol-
verine captain is still feeling the ef-
fects of a chipped bone in his shoul-
der combined with a stomach ache
which has bothered him all week.
In case Evy does not start, husky
George Ceithaml will join Harmon,
Bullet Bob Westfall and Harold "Tip-
py" Lockard, high school team-mate
of Scott's. in the Wolverine back-
Tomorrow's clash will be the 37th
renewal of an ancient and intense
Wolverine-Buckeye grid-iron rivalry.
ince the beginning Michigan has car-
ried off 24 triumphs to ten for Ohio.
while two games ended in ties.
Wolves Have Beaten OSU
When Harmon, Evashevski, Ed
Frutig, Joe Rogers, Sukup, Ralph
Fritz, Paul Kromer, Ed Czak and
Harry Kohl joined the Michigan
team as sophomores two years ago,
Crisler also was in his first season at
Ann Arbor. Together they won their
first victory in five years over the
Buckeyes, 18-0.
Last year in Ann Arbor, Michigan
triumphed again, 21-24, by coming
from behind and scoring in the dying
minutes on a fake place kick and run
by speedy, little Freddie Trosko. It
was one of the most thrilling games
ever played in the Michigan stadium.
Tomorrow they meet again.

Rankin Rated Tops
In spite of the preponderance of
star backs in the Conference this
year, however, it was Captain Dave
Rankin of Purdue, "a quiet studious,
cracker-jack end" who was voted the
outstanding player in the Conference
for the season.
"All but one of the Big Ten coaches,1
scouts and players polled by the
United Press placed Rankin on their
first teams. Even Harmon . . . failed
to grab as many first place votes as
Rankin," the UP announced.
Evashevski was nosed out of the
first string quarterback position by
Ohio State's Don Scott by the mar-
gin of one first place vote. Five Con-
ference coaches voted the berth to
Scott, while "Evy" was named on the
ballots of four mentors.
Franck And Paskavan Named
Minnesota's ,'sensational George
Franck and George Paskvan of Wis-
consin rounded out the first team
backfield at the right halfback and
fullback positions, respectively.
Three Northwestern men, center
Paul Hiemenz, guard Joe Lokanc, and
tackle Alf Bauman, and Minnesota's
gigantic 247-pound tackle, Urban Od-
son, made up the remainder of the
first team line.
The complete United Press poll fol-
First team vote: Rankin 85, Frutig
60, Bauman 70, Odson 55, Lokanc 70,
Fritz 45, Hiemenz 75, Scott 60, Har-
mon 80, Franck 80, Paskvan 55.
Second Team Votes
The second team: ends Charley
Anderson, Ohio State, (35); Archie
Harris, Indiana, (20); tackles Al Wis-
tert, Miphigan, (45); Mike Enich,
Iowa, (40); guards Dick Eknbick,

nesota, (20); center Claude White,
Ohio State, (15); quarterback Forest
Evashevski, (55); .halfbacks .Bruce
Smith, Minnesota, (45) Red Hahnen-
stein, Northwestern, (25); fullback

Injury Hoodoo
Hits Lowrey's
Hockey Squad
Coach Eddie Lowrey's Varsity
hockey squad has only been on the
ice for four nights but the old in-
jury jinx is already beginning to get
in a few licks at the team.
Johhny Gillis, who recently gave
up a very promising career with Matt
Mann's championship swimming
team, had ten stitches taken in his
right leg as a result of a skate gash
received in Thursday night's prac-
tice. Gillis will be out until Tues-
day but should be read for the op-
ening game with the London A. C.
next Saturday night.
Max Bahrych, flashy sophomore
wingman is also on the sick list with
a bad gash over his left eye which
necessitated four stitches. He was
back on the ice for last night's prac-
tice, however.
, Johnny Corson, junior forward,
tops off the list of injured players.
Corson has a cut on the corner of his
left eye.
In spite of the injuries, Lowrey is
confident that the team will be in
top shape for the opener. Last night's
practice was marked by the fine worl
of Hugh McVeigh at the goalie's spot.
McVeigh, a sophomore, was expectec
to play second fiddle to Hank Loud,
but he has been coming along fasi
and looks as though he may give
Loud plenty of competition for the
net-minder's job.

Expert Gazes
In Magic Ball,
Picks Winners
Minnesota, No. 1 football team in the
country, comes to the end of a back-
breaking schedule tomorrow and, by
all logical means of reckoning,
should get there with its back neither
broken by defeat nor dented by a tie.
While the Gophers are taking on
underdog Wisconsin at Madison,
you'll have to look elsewhere for your
headlines if you feel that crowds
make news, for Cornell, hoping to re-
bound from the Dartmouth upset, and
Penn will draw better than 78,000
here at Franklin Field; some 72,0,00
are due to see Michigan and Ohio
State war at Columbus, and 48,000, all
they can get in the place, will be in
Northwestern's Dyche Stadium as the
Wildcats square off against Notre
Season Nears End
As the season nears its close, with
the Big Nine, the Big Three and other
major teams closing out their cam-
paigns, this is how tomorrow's major
games look from here (home teams
first, probable attendance in paren-
Penn-Cornell (78,205): 18 of the
22 Cornell first and second stringers
will be playing their last game, and
we miss our guess if they don't take
the field with blood (figuratively) in
their eyes. The Ithacans won last
year, and at their best are better this
year. Cornell.
Wisconsin-Minnesota (46,000): The
Badgers uncorked a suruprise in the
decisiveness of their victory over In-
diana. But this is a different pro-
position. Minnesota.
Northwestern-Notre Dame (48,000)
A vote for Northwestern.
Yale-Harvard (45,000): Tradition
alone can't pack the Ells' bowl any
more. Still, it should be a real dog-
fight, with this nod to Harvard on
defensive strength shown in'the Penn
and Princeton ties.
Tennessse-Kentucky (25,000): Even
if Kaintuck hadn't been dumped so
unceremoniously by West Virginia,
Tennessee would have to be the pick.
Baylor-Southern Methodist (15,000)
Jack Wilson's return has bolstered the
Bears but on form S.M.U. looks too
U. C. L. A.-Washington (40,000):
Washington, in spite of the UCLAns'
rally of a week ago.
Nebraska-Iowa State (25,000): An-
other for the Huskers.
Wolverines Favored
Ohio State vs. Michigan (72,000):
MICHIGAN to finish second in the
Western Conference by taking this
Boston College-Auburn (30,000):
The Eagles can't afford to take this
lightly, but should win provided O'-
Rourke keeps going.
Brown-Dartmouth (15,000): Dart-
mouth, off the lift it got from that
Cornell game.
Alabama-Vanderbilt (15,000): Ala-
bama and Jimmy Nelson.
Pitt-Penn State (25,000): Stringing
with unbeaten Penn State.
Rice - Texas Christian (20,000):
Rice in a close one.
Purdue-Indiana (31,000): Com-
pletely in the dark. Purdue.
Iowa-Illinois (20,000): Looks like a
sad windup for the llini. Iowa.
Columbia-Colgate (20,000) : A stout
line and Columbia.
Georgia Tech-Florida (20,000) : A
flier on Florida.
Michigan State-West Virginia (18,-
000): The home team, State.
Princeton-Army (20,000): Aller.

Meeting of the Michigan State High
School Athletic Association next Sat-
urday will climax a week-long Sports

sion session.
Sunday's exhibition, in addition to
the handball exhibition, will include
an independent men's basketball
organization and instruction in water
polo and swimming, the latter for
beginners, by Varsity Coach Matt
The program, with special events
carded daily, will not interfere with
the regular schedule of the Depart-
ment. It's aim, according to Earl Ris-
key, Assistant Director, is to encour-
age those students who have been
hesitant about entering into regular
competition to participate. Beginners
will be given special instruction and
more experienced players will be able
to analyze their own game by watch-
ing experts play ,it as it should be

Coach Mart Levandowski, Fencing
Coach Johnny Johnstone, and Var-
sity Golf Coach Ray Courtright.

Class warfare will break out in a
rash next Friday at Matt Mann's
super Swim Gala as the freestyle and
medley relay races find the fresh-
men. sophomores, juniors and seniors
swimming against each other in a
post-Black Friday battle.
This will be just a snall pairt of
the most elaborate show Mann has
yet staged at the Sports building pool.
The sixth annual Gala, part of the
proceeds of which go to the Women's
Athletic Association, is shaping up
as a riot of laughs, a display of ex-
cellence and a water show unparal-

unusual, Matt has cooked up a spe-
cial "Flipper Race". The tilting con-

"When I first started looking at stoves, I had an idea
that an electric range would be too costly for my
budget. But I've shopped around and found exactly
the range I want. Its price fits my budget. It has all -
the things I'm looking for... porcelain finish, table-
top design, full-size oven, fast cooking units with
three heat speeds. And easy to clean? Just whisk a
damp cloth over it; the job's done.
"I know I'll like the range. And I think my husband
will be pleasantly surprised when he finds out how
reasonable the bills for electric cooking really are."
Electric cooking does cost less than you think. For a
family of three persons it averages $1.55 a month-
about a nickel a day. Automatic electric water heating
is another bargain: You can enjoy this service for less
than 10c a day (for an average family of three)....
