Volverine Gridmen Entrain For Battle With Northwes


Varsity Eleven
Faces Strong
Wildcat Team
Michigan Line Must Stop
Purple Backfield Aces,;
Madar Out Of Contest
(Continued from Page 1)
Wolverines will have a better than
even chance of bringing home a vic-
There's no telling what will hap-
pen . when the star tackles of both
teams, Michigan's Al Wistert and
Northwestern's All-American Alfie
Bauman, tangle on the gridiron. Both
are terrific tacklers and blockers, and
both aresformidable pillars of defense.
Each side has one injury that may
cause an inexperienced man to take
over his duties.r Michigan's Elmer
Madar, the second ,ranking quarter--
back, will be on the sidelines with a
fractured shoulder. His loss, which
may be for several weeks, makes
Charles Haslam, an inexperienced
sophomore, the second signal-caller
behind veteran George Ceithaml.
Cook Out
Leon Cook, Wildcat tackle, will also
watch the game from the sidelines
because of a strained ligament in his
leg. Coach Waldorf will be forced to
rely on one of his 4nseasoned sopho-
mores. - \
The Wolverine band will also make
the trip and will leave at 1:37 p.m.
Coach Crisler announced the fol-
lowing players would make the trip:
Ends: Joe Rogers fCarlin Frau-
mann, Jack Karwales, Rudy Smeja,
Phil Sharpe and Bob Shemky.
Tackles: Al Wistert, Reuben Kel-
to, Bob Flora, Leo Cunningham, John
Laine and George Hildebrandt.
Guards: Bob Kolesar, Bill Melzow,-
Mervin Pregulmain Julius Franks,
Walter Freihofer and Ralph Amstutz.
Centers: Bob Ingalls, Ted Ken.
, nedy and Bill Pritula.
Quarterbacks: George Ceithaml,
Charles "Haslam, John Greene and
Elmer Madar.
Halfbacks: Tom Kuzma, Dave Nel-
son, Don Robinson, Harold Lockard,
Paul White, Al Thomas and Charles
Fullbacks: Bob Westfall, Don Boor
and Bob Stenberg.
Giesebrecht Ready
T Play For Wings
DETROIT, Oct. 16.-(P)-With the
arrival today of cente Gus Giese-
brecht, the Detroit Red Wings were
near top strength for theopener of
their exhibition hockey series here
Sunday with the Cleveland Barons..
Qiesebrecht had been delayed at the
Canadian border until passed by his
War Service Board.
Of the 44 players invited to prac-
tice, only defenseman Bob Whitelaw
is missing, and no word was forth-
coming on when he might receive
his passport.

0 Wildcat Backfield Talent
0 Wolverine Line Strength
Daily Sports Editor
STATEMIENT: Northwestern has the finest assortment of backfield talent
to be found on any collegiate grid machine in the country. AUTHOR-
ITY: End Coach Bennie Oosterbaan who scouted the Wildcats as they
crushed Kansas State and Wisconsin with 92 ponits. ,
STATEMENT: Michigan's backfield corps is improving rapidly,
but still lacks the all-around power, polish and finesse of last year's
combination which barely managed to outscore the Wildcats, 20-13.
AUTHORITY: Virtually everyone who is in a position to compare the
current backfield with the 1940 quartet, including the Wolverine coach-
ing staff.
STATEMENT: As a result of this edge in backfield strength, the Purple
maintains a decided edge in betting odds. AUTHORITY: New York bookies
who are quoting 12-5 on the Wildcats; Chicago bet-takers who say 8-5 or
9-5; and most of the nation'sexperts who are giving the nod to Northwestern
in a close battle.

.This puts the issue squarely up to the Wolverine forward; wall.
Up front is where the crucial Western Conference clash will probably
be won or lost. The Maize and Blue linemen have the vital and none-too-
pleasant task of throttling the Wildcat's dazzling offensive fireworks before
they can be touched off. They will have to smother the Northwestern
ground game before it can be shifted into high gear. They will have to put
intense pressure .on Wildcat passers . . . for the best pass 'defense is a
hard-charging line.

The Michigan forward wall must
do all these things and more, if the
Wolverines hope to remain a con-
tender in the torrid Conference grid
On offense, too, the Maize and
Blue line holds the key to the situ-
ation. Michigan's backs will go no-
where unless tl linemen can
spring them into the secondary,
unless the forward wall enables
them to get past the first line of
white-shirted Wildcat defensemen,.
Coach Fritz Criser has drilled
his squad in some new plays this
week, plays that are designed to go
go all the way for touchdowns.
Potentially it will be a power-
packed, versatile offense that the
Wolverines will throw at the Wild-
cats in Evanston tomorrow. But
every bit of the intricate ball-hand-'
Iing and deception is based on a
strong, aggressive line.

> Deception means nothing with-
'out a strong line to shield it and
pave the way for it. No better ex-
ample can be cited than the Min-
nesota-Illinois encounter last week.
Zuppke poured all his gridiron
knowledge and experience into
molding a diversified and polished
Illini attack. It was said to match
in pure deception and offensive
wizardry anything the Illinois coach
had ever turned out. But ,it was
smothered by the huskier, more
mobile Minnesota forwards before
it ever had a chance to function.
And that hvas the story of the game,
as the Gophers romped, 34-6.
How does the Michigan line
stack up for this crucial test to-
morrow? The records show, and
it is any opinion, that Line Coach
Clarence Munn's rugged charges
are much better equipped than the
prevailing odds on the battle seem
to indicate.

When Lynn Waldorf, coach of the
snarling- Northwestern Wildcats,
helped pass the unlimited substitu-
tion rule at the last convention of the
nation's football mentors and rule-
makers, he probably never dreamed'
that that same rule might become an
insurmountable ,obstacle in tomor-
row's clash between his speedy Evan-
ston charges' and Fritz Crisler's,
growling band of Wolverines.
Strong Guards
For there is a good chance that this
may happen when the Wildcat and
the Wolverines tangle at Dyche Sta-
dium tomorrow afternoon. And all
because Fritz Crisler will have what
looms to be the strongest quartet of
explosive guards in the Midwest
primed for action.-
Bob Kolesar, the husky Cleveland
junior, and Merv Pregulman, the big
sophomore contribution from Lan-
sing, will probably start the game at
the guard slots for Michigan; but,
sitting next to Crisler and line coach
Biggie Munn on the visitor's bench
will be senior Bill Melzow and sopho-
more Julie Franks, two linemen who
won't let themselves be pushed around
by anybody.
And if the going gets too tough for'
either of the starting Wolverine
guai'ds, or if either one of them be-
gins to miss his blocks or tackles or
shows signs of fatigue, Crisler will
turn to either Melzow or Franks with
a nod of his head and a few spoken
words. Then the selectee will bend
over for some whispered instructions,
grab a helmet, and dash from the
sidelines onto the field to take his
place in the front line pf the Wol-
verine forces.
Regulars Can Return;
But it doesn't end there. For as
soon as the substitute begins to show
signs of wear and tear, back into the
fray will ga4lop the starting guard
who has been told of his mistakes and
has had a chance to gain his second

wind. Throughout the tilt this pro-
cedure will continue,,as it has in the
past three battles on Michigan's 1941
So the Northwestern boys will have
to concentrate on more than stopping
those flashy Ann Arbor backs, Bob
Westfall and Tom Kuzma, tomorrow
afternoon. They'll have to find a
way of putting a halt to thk bruising
blocks and jarring tackles of the
Wolverines' dynamite-laden guard
quartet, because if they don't they
will be doomed to taste the devasta-
ting destructiveness f four power-
packed guards on the loose.


Iowa To Meet Wisconsin
IOWA CITY, Ia., Oct. 16.-/P)-.-
An injury-ridden squad of 33 Uni-
versity of Iowa football players will
leave for Madison, Wis., tomorrow'
morning and their Big Ten contest
with Wisconsin. Dr. Eddie Ander-
son indicated Tom warmer would
start at left halfback, but could not
name a starting quarterback. The
squad worked on signals and Wiscon-
sin plays today with Anderson him-
self impersonating Tom Farris, Bad-
ger quarterback.

This is the fourth year that Crisler and his aides have been coaching
at Michigan. And in every one of these four years, Munn.ias molded a
powerful forward wall. It is sufficient to say that this present line is poten-
tially the greatest of the four. Tested three times thus far in the yet young
grid campaign, the line has held the opposition scoreless in the last 178
minutes. Only Michigan State has been able to cross the Wolverine goal
line, and that came in the first two minutes of the season's opener on a
scintillating 74-yard run.
Since that first temporary lapse, the Michigan forwards have not
only kept its goal line uncrossed, but also succeeded in keeping the
high-geared Iowa and Pittsburgh attacks from penetrating beyond the
Wolverione 34-yard line.
Tackle to tackle the Wolverines pack a potent array of talent. Big
Bob Ingalls and Ted Kennedy capably man the pivot post. They are flanked
by four of the nation's best guards, Bob Kolesar, Merv Pregulman, Julie
Franks and Bill Melzow. Then at the tackle slots stand husky, reliable Rube
Kelto and Al Wistert, backed up by Bob Flora and Leo Cunningham.
Northwestern's line, somewhat of an unknown, quality, admittedly is
not up to'ythe high standards of its backfield. But nevertheless Fritz Crisler
believes it will be just as good a forward wall as last year's. Which was al-
most too good against the Maize and Blue.
Thus, you can see the burden that's resting square'ly on the broad
shoulders of the Wolverine forward wall. But you'll have to be in Dyche
Stadium at 2 p.m. tomorrow to see how they carry it.
