Pitt To Arrive Today
When the Wolverine gridiron ma-
chine steps out on the field tomorrow
to do battle with the University of
Pittsburgh Panthers in the Michigan
Stadium, anything can happen.
For aside from the information
brought back from the Pitt-Purdue
game last week by Assistant Coach
Ernie McCoy who scouted that tilt,
the Michigan coaches know very little
about Pitt and are abiding by the
word of McCoy that the Panthers are
a "potentially strong" team, even

Coach Charley Bowser is expected
to be pointing for a victory over the
Wolverines. Since Jock Sutherland
resigned as head football coach at the
Smoky City school, the Pitt alumni
have been clamoring for their alma
mater to get a chance to enter the

Bowser will place a strong line on
the field against the Wolverines, but
it is still a line that includes several

cient experience under power to judge
their ability. End Stan Gervelis will
undoubtedly be the outstanding play-
er on the Pitt forward wall with his
pass-snagging skill.
The Panther's backfield is just as
much an indeterminate factor as
the line. Halfbac'k Edgar Jones, the

who was expected to live up to the
"Special Delivery" tag pinned on him
at the end + of last season, was- in-

However, Bill Dutton and Jack
Stetler, both triple-threat men, dis-
played plenty of what it takes as far
as passing is concerned against the
Boilermakers and are expected to fill
the air with flying pigskins Satur-
day, in view of what they must have
heard about the weakness of Michi-
gan's pass defense.
The Panthers will arrive in Ann
Arbor by train today and will go
through a light workout on the Stad-
ium turf this afternoon in prepara-
tion for tomorrow's battle.
