Panther Game
Shows Varsity
Weak Passers
White Returns To Lineup;
Northwestern Backfield
Is Loaded With Power
With three victories already tucked
away in their helmets, Michigan's
title aspiring Wolverines began yes-
terday to concentrate on Saturday's
battle against Northwestern at Ev-
It takes no magican to figure out
that this contest against the Wild-
cats will be the first real test for ei-
ther team. In the two games they
have played to date, Lynn Waldorf's
men have steam-rollered over the
opposition, whipping Kansas State,
51-3, and soundly trouncing Wiscon-
sin, 41-14. The Maize and Blue, on
the other hand, beat out Michigan
State, 19-7 eked out a win over Iowa,
6-0, and thoroughly crushed Pitt,
Passing Weak
LastSaturday's game against the
Panthers showed Coach Fritz Cris-
ler that the passing attack is still on
the weak side. Tom Kuzma at-
tempted seven passes, including one
shovel pass, against the Pitt defense
and had, just fair success. One of
the seven was completed through in-
terference, two were completed for
gains, the shovel pass was completed
but lost yardage, one was incomplete,
and the other two were intercepted
by the alert Pitt defense.
Don Robinson; in his collegiate de-
but, threw the pigskin swice and both
were incomplete. However, both
heaves were very accurate and should
have been caught. All in all, the
Wolverines gained just 37 yards
through the air. And that's not very
much considering that the Michigan
ground attack rplled up 274 yards.
Good Blocking
But even above the great running
of Davey Nelson, Kuzma, Westfall
and the rest of the Michigan backs
was the terrific blocking of the Maize
and Blue forward wall. The line's
performance was brilliant both of-
fensively and defensively. The block-
ing, in particular, was devastating.
'Northwestern also showed that
they have power in all departments.
The running, passing and kicking in
the Wisconsin game were capably
handled by Bill DeCorrevot and the
new Wildcat sensation, sophomore
Otto Graham. The line play of Alfie
Bauman was outstanding.
Gridiron Notes: Immediately after
the game, Captain Bob Westfall went
to the University Hospital where he
is confined with .the hives. He missed
practice yesterday, but will be well
for Saturday's tilt. Paul White's ail-
ing shoulder is almost healed and he
went through signal drill yesterday
for the first time in two weeks, and
will be all set for the Wildcat fray.
Coach Crisler put the Wolverines
through a good three-hour workout
yesterday emphasizing passing and
gave the boys several new plays.

Short Practice

SPORTS HASH: Every story onf
Michigan football that has gone
out of Ann Arbor in the last month
has stressed the weakness of the
Wolverine air attack . . . it was
virtually non-existent in the Michi-
gan State and Iowa games . . . and
against Pitt Michigan's pass attack
was the Panthers' best offense .
since they gained more yards from
interception runbacks than they did
on running plays.
But Lynn Waldorf, astute North-
western grid coach, is taking no
chances . . . reports from Evans-
ton indicate he is drilling his Wild-
cats hard on pass defense.
Meanwhile the Wolverines will de-
velop an effective overhead attack
. . . or wear out their good right
arms . . . Fritz Crisler drills his
backs by the hour in an effort to at-
tain the polish and finesse requi-
site to a workable aerial attack- .
which must accompany and comple-
ment every sound running game.
LP at Wisconsin, Superman's
brother is playing center for
the Badgers . . . from their latest
press release one learns that a lad
named Dick Thornally "is soft-
voiced and easy going by nature,"
but "an entirely different person
when football togs are donned"
according to the Cardinal
drum-beater, Thornally's 'tack-
ling leaves little to be desired, his
blocking is fundamental and on top
of it all he's a tremendous Hercu-
les-at-the-bridge line backer" . .
the pivot man, continues the press
release "gets things ' done by ex-
hibiting more jolt than poetry of
motion, and when he hits it's watch
out below and the devil take the
hind-most" . . . Thornally "passes
meticulously, charges cannily and
hard and is an apt diagnoser of
plays" . . . but, the adjective-lad-
en release anti-climactically con-
cludes, "there's no question but he
has plenty to learn."

auto knocked the instrument out of

Irish Footballers
Receive First Rest
SOUTH BEND, Ind., Oct. 13.--P)
-Notre Dame's football regulars to-
day took their first holiday since the
season opened. "The boys have
worked hard this fall," Coach Frank
Leahy said, "and I feel a day or two
of rest will help them regain some
of their lost weight. Tomorrow we'll
go to work on fundamentals and
Wednesday we'll look over the de-
fense we'll use against Carnegie
Tech." The Irish meet the Tartans
in Pittsburgh next Saturday.

72,000 Will See Game
EVANSTON, Ill., Oct. 13.-OP)-j
Coach Lynn Waldorf used a rainy af-
ternoon today to list Northwestern's
shortcomings as highlighted by the
Wisconsin game. After looking at the
movies of that 41 to 14 victory the
Wildcats took a short dummy scrim-
mage and called it a day. Waldorf
said much time would be spent this
week on pass defense in preparation
for the game with Michigan.

other practice session devoted ex-
clusively to offense added today to
the impression Ohio State intends to
"shoot the works" in its first Western
Conference game, with Purdue here
Saurday. The only Buckeye squad
member on the hospital list is Dick
Zimmerman, sophomore end, who
suffered a leg injury against South-
ern California.
The ticket office predicted a sell-
out crowd of at least 72,000 would
see the contest.

Purdue Ace Injured...
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Oct. 13.-(AP)--
Football coach Albert H. (Mal) El-
ward said today Purdue University's
banged-up Boilermakers would go
through only light drills this week
in preparing for next Saturday's
Western Conference opener at Ohio
State. "We need hard work," he ex-
plained, "but we can't afford it."
Trainers indicated JohnGalvin, sea-
soned left halfback, would be. out of
action at least two weeks Svith a
cracked face bone. Walter Cook
worked out today in his place.
Most of the regulars took a well
earned rest in today's workout while
the substitutes went through a 30-
minute scrimmage.
