Heavy Practice

Before Gopher


wolverines Work On Passing;
DaleyMay Not Start Contest


Michigan's number one football fan? . . . Barbara Coxon, daughter
of Dr. A. W. Coxon, has staked out her claim for the title . .. young Barbara,
an enthusiastic Wolverine booster for years, rarely misses a practice session,
knows most of the gridmen by name, knows the plays and formations even
better than that . . . she devotedly keeps a scrapbook filled with clippings
copcerning the Wolverines from papers all over the country. t
For last year's scrapbook Barbara was offered a sizeable bit of
money by a national magazine, but turned it down . . . she had her
busiest pasting spree last Sunda when she loaded 18 pages with stories
and pictures of the Northwestern game . . . how about tomorrow's
Minnesota game? . . "Why, Michigan will win, of course," Barb
declares. '
INEWS from the scalping front is scarce. . . police report that many
people are coming down from Minnesota without tickets . . . and
wanting them badly . . last night only 27 student coupons of the more
than 10,000 issued had not been turned in . . . one scalper complained last
night that his business hadn't been so good the last couple days . . . "The
ticket office put some more on. sale," he said, "and we can't compete with
them at their prices" . . . the ticket office had a small supply of tickets
left over after some students ha~d failed to take up their option on the
three additional ducats on each coupon . . . but they were snapped up
within a half hour's time.F
The influx of the nation's top-notch sports writers and announcers
began yesterday . . . heading the vanguard were Bill Stern, NBC's
ace sportscaster and Bill Boni, crack Associated Press man . . . with .
Stern is Irving Kahn, head publicity man with Twentieth-Century Fox
Studios . . . he's in Ann Arbor to arrange for a publicity appearance on .
the Michigan campus by movie acgtress Linda Darnell . . . with the
Hollywood star touring the campus as a promotion stunt to get spreads
in national magazines.

NORMAN SPER, who visited the campus last spring and took motion
pictures of the gridmen in spring drill, is now being featured in a
series of movie shorts flashed thro'ughout the nation each week he
picks the football winners, showing some of he feature plays of competing
teams in the day's biggest games . . . tomorrow he picks Minnesota .
last week he picked Northwestern.
Which reminds of the loyal young fellow on the Pitt News, student
newspaper, who picked Pittsburgh over Michigan . . . and although
the Panthers were crushed,"40-0, he came back the next week with the
fearless prediction that the Panthers would upset Minnesota . . . he
was wrong by 39 points.
PITT'S COACH, Charley Bowser, who should know, says that Minnesota
looked stronger to him . . . but the majority of his team disagrees . . .
they maintain Michigan's line is better than the Vikings . . . and that the
Wolverines skould win.

Out of the Army's Pine Camp, N.Y., comes a letter from Herb Lev,
former assistant Daily Sports 'Editor, who has a few interesting observa-
tions on Tom Harmons professional debut in New York last Sunday
Herb, who was in the stands, has this to say among other things:
HAD TO PINCH MYSELF at regular intervals to make myself believe
that the guy wearing number 98 on his red, white and blue jersey, who
seemed to spend his time alternately slapping teammate John Kimbrough
on the back and getting pushed around by the Bulls . . . was the same
Gary Ghost . . . Tom just didn't have it yesterday.. To be sure he had no
Evashevski to pave the way but there was no getting around the fact that
he was rusty in every phase of the game. . . Running mate Kimbrough, or
should I say side-show-attraction, was only slightly more effective. Per-
haps this was due to the fact that he had four days practice for the game
to Tom's one.
"I only hope that the thousands of customers who kept blaring
"We Want Hutch" throughout the second half and who -hooted and
booed Tom as he left the game realize that the Wolverine is only human
and that no man canhhope to accomplish in one day of practice what
others do in two months."
"I'm betting even money on the Minnesota game and the team had
better not fail me as money doesn't come so easy these days in,the Army.
So long and good luck. Herb Lev (number one Harmon rooter of my day.)"

TONIGHT IS PEP RALLY NIGHT . . . my landlady, who lives on
South State Street and doesn't like to be called landlady, is worried
about her hedge, which students, bound for Yost Field House, will almost
certainly trample . . . I'm worried about Minnesota.

It was dark down at Ferry Field
around 6 p.m. yesterday.
But it wasn't until 15minutes later
that a swarm of Gopher-hungry, de-
termined gridders called it a day and
trotted inrto the Field House locker
room. The Michigan 'football team
had just completed their last day of
heavy work before their all-impor-
tant battle with Minnesota's Golden
Gophers in the Stadium tomorrow.
Today Coach Fritz Crisler will send
his Western Conference and national
title contenders through a light sig-
nal drill. Immediately after he blows
the final whistle the squad will leave
for the Barton Hills Country Club
where they will remain in seclusion
until it is time to go down to the
Stadium for the clash with Bernie
Bierman's Norsemen.
Crisler has been stressing the pass-
ing attack all week and yesterday's
drill was no exception. The Wol-
verines, with tailbacks Tom Kuzma,
Davey Nelson, and Don Robinson
doing the pitching, polished up their
aerial maneuvers for the better part
of the day's lengthy session. Michi-

ire the Michigan-Minnesota gamie


makes tomorrow's fray the outstand-
ing football contest of the year.
Four of the outstanding tackles in
the nation will be glaring into each
other's eyes when Michigan's Al Wis-
tert and Rube Kelto, and Minnesota's
Urban Odson and Dick Wildung
crouch down at the line of scrim-
mage. Both Wistert and Odson have
been prominently mentioned by grid
experts as All-American choices,
while Kelto and Wildung are ranked
only a step behind.
The power-packed Maize and Blue
guard quartet, Bob Kolesar, Merv
Pregulman, Julie Franks, and Bill
Melzow, are considered to be the
finest array of guards in the Mid-
west. They will be facing their se-
-verest test of the, season in Butch
Levy and Helge Pukema, who man
the guard slots for the Gophers.
And two of the best backfields in
the country will be on opposite sides
of the field when the opening gun
is fired. Minnesota, with Bruce
Smith, Sweiger, Daley, Frickey, War-
ren Plunkett, Bill Garnaas, and Bob
Higgins can hold its head high in
the company of any backs. The Wol-
verines, too, need not pay homage
in this respect. They have Westfall,
Kuzma, George Ceithaml, Tippy Lock-
ard, and Nelson, five boys who can
ably match the Gopher ball-toters
in running, passing, kicking and
It's going to be the two classiest
teams in the Midwest, some say in
the country, battling each other in
the Stadium tomorrow with a galaxy
of gridiron aces, a tradition-steeped
rivalry, and a furious will to win.
Williams Winehell
W in Section Titles
Winchell House and Williams Hopse
scored smashing victories yesterday
at South Ferry Field to win in their
sections of the Intramural dormitory
touch football league.
Winchell showed great alertness in
rolling over a game Adams House
team, 38-0. George Fischler was Win-
chell's high scorer with 12 points.
Bob Ideson and John Piepenbrink
made two touchdowns apiece as they
led a hard-blocking Williams House
team to a 27-0 victory over Allen-
Rumsey. Other games saw Chicago
House, with Ed Morley in the starring
role, win impressively over Lloyd
House, 20-0, and Wenley House nosing
out Michigan, 6-0, on Jack Gettle-
son's touchdown.
Only two speedball games were
played. Theta Delta Chi continued
unbeaten, defeating Psi Upsilon 16-6.
Paul Barker, Bud Low, and Bob Getts
scored 14 of Theta Delta Chi's 16
points. In the other game, Sigma Phi
Epsilon led by John Mikulich, whose
accurate toe booted home six points,
easily defeated Delta Upsilon 11-1.

gan struck through the air against
Northwestern, and the Golden Goph-
ers may get a taste of the same touch-
down formula.
The Minnesota outfit boarded a
train for the Wolverine state last
night. Beirman's charges will arrive
in Jackson at 9:30 a.m. today, go
through a light workout this after-
noon, and make their Ann Arbor
appearance at 11:15 a.m. tomorrow.
There was considerable wvorry in
the Gopher camp over the condition
of fullback Bill Daley, who was ex-
pected to furnish Michigan's Bobby
Westfall with a real yard-eating duel.
The big Minnesota plunger has been
bothered all week with a combination
of a toe injury and charley-horse,
and unless the hurt shows some rapid
improvement he won't be in there at
the 'opening kickoff.
If Daley doesn't start, his position
will be filled by right half Bob Swei-
ger. In that case sophomore Herman
Fric/key will be called on to take
Sweiger's spot.
When the two tearhs face each
other in the huge bowl tomorrow they
will be bringing together the greatest
assortment of pigskin stars to be
seen at one time on any collegiate
gridiron during the season. That,
plus the fact that they will be fighting
for Big Ten and national supremacy
as well as the famed Little Brown Jug,
