Wistert Seeks Vengeance:
Al To Settle Score With Gophers


, !

a -I

Minnesota may fear Westfall's run-
ning and Kuzma's passing, but the
Gophers must also beware of Al Wis-
tert's vengeance. For, today, Al will
settle all differences.
It seems that, last year throughout
the season preceding the Minnesota
tilt, Wistert was acclaimed for his
outstanding performances. Skeptical
football experts, however, waited till
they were able to verify this "rumor"
with their own observations. So it
went, until last year's contest for the
Little Brown Jug.
During the first few minutes of
the grueling game, fate seemed to go
against Michigan's Wistert. He was
ifjured by a blow on the head, leav-
ing him in a groggy state for the re-
mainder of the fray. From then on,
Al played in ai stupor.
Seeing this "star" floundering on
the gridiron, the grid experts weren't
impressed by his performance. Con-
sequently any doubt of placing Wis-
tert on the various All-American
teams was lifted. He became one of
"the forgotten men.''
Today, Al Wistert will be a deter-
mined player who will be hard to stop.
He will be In there showing "these
boys".his true brand of football.
He will also be striving to follow in
the footsteps of his famous brother,
"Whitey" Wistert, who won All-Amer-
ican honors a few years ago.
"Whitey" was also a tackle. He wore
the number 11, the same numeral

worn today by Al. The older Wistert
counseled his brother in not playing
high school football. This advice
simply stated that high school ball
"was injurious to young boys." He
also added that Al was small and
weak due to an accident when he was
about 12 years of age.
Concentrating on basketball and
baseball in high school, he let foot-
ball wait until he came to Michigan.
Here he rapidly becanie the formid-
able tackle he is today.
Playing a powerful game, Wistert[
has been the bulwark of the Michigan
line. All indications point to the fact
that Al has been one of the hardest
playing men on the field. To date he
has played two full 60 minute games.
First, against Michigan State and
then against Northwestern. He also
played 55 minutes against Iowa and
45 against Pitt. His playing practi-
cally exhausted him. During the Pitt
contest, many of the fans noticed
that he was a tired football player.'
He continued, however, to break up
many of the opposition's plays. He
played aggressive ball throughout the
contest. But after each play, he did-
n't look as if he would be able to
continue the game. He was a tired
and worn out gridder.
Now with the Minnesota team
again facing the Varsity, Wistert will,
again be trying to stop the Gopher
offensive. And, following closely in
the footsteps of "Whitey" Wistert,
he will try to carry on the famous
Wistert tradition. Because, "Whitey"
played on the last Michigan team
that beat the University of Minnesota.

S Gopher Gridders Joke
0 But Bernie Worries
Daily Sports Editor
. . . .
YOU ALL HEARD Fritz Crisler tell about those big, tough, "disgustingly-1
healthy" Minnesota Gophers last night at the pep rally. I saw them
yesterday afternoon. And Fritz, if anything, is guilty of understatement.
Art Hill, Bill Burke and I drove down to Jackson especially to talk to
the Gophers and their coach, silver-thatched Bernie Bierman. We caughtI
them in between chalk talks at the Hotel Hayes where they were quartered:
Frankly, they are huge. They look tough and they act tough. Their
football opponents say they are tough. They themselves declare they
are the toughest and the best team in the nation.

Michigan's I
Rides On Ou
From all indications of past, pres-
ent. and especially future events, the
"battle of the decade" which is to be.,
staged on the green turf of the Mich-
igan Stadium this afternoon presents
more angles to the avid football fan
than a Chinese pagoda caught in the
swirling maelstrom of a cyclone.
First and foremost. of course, is
the fact that whether the Wolverines
win or lose this all-important tilt
from the Gophers, it should just
about end the season as far as final
standings are concerned. With Illi-
nois, Columbia and Ohio State to face
next, all of whom are potentially
dangerous but none of whom can
measure up to the Gophers as a foe,
Michigan can probably fight its way
into the national title if they can
vanquish the Mighty Norsemen from

far this year. however, the Illini have
not displayed much power and with
any kind of luck. their collective
scalps should be hanging from Mich-
igan's totem pole after the game this
Columbia Loses Snavely
Columbia, next on the Wolverines'
schedule, has one of the best teams
in the history of the New York school
this year, but with the loss of its
great center, Don Snavely, for the
remainder'of the season, and consid-
ering the fact that it was downed on-
ly last week by the Sinkwich Com-
pany of the University of Georgia,
Lou Little's charges should not be
Michigan's stumbling-block either.
Last on the Wolverines' schedule
this year are the Brown-ized Buck-
eyes of Ohio State. Under the apt
tutelage of Paul Brown, the Buck-
eyes have shown a great reversal of
form this year in taking their first
three games. They would not match
up against the Gophers, however.
and after that shoddy display they
evidenced against Purdue last week,
when they eked out a 16-14 victory
and were probably saved from defeat
only by the timekeeper's gun, the
Buckeyes will need plenty of breaks
to take over the Wolverines of this
Easy After Minnesota
If Michigan gels past its nemesis
today, then there should not be too
much in the way of that national
title's coming to nestle softly among
the trees of little old Ann Arbor.
Minnesota, on the other hand, must
do battle against a very strong
Northwestern aggregation next Sat-

urday and therefore, even if they
do defeat Michigan today, they face
another tough opponent next week.
With today's game shaping up as
the suprera test, then, and with
everything to win as well as every-
thing to lose, the Wolverines can be
counted on to play even more of an
inspired game than they displayed
against Northwestern last week.
Fritz Crisler and his charges have
been pointing for this game above
all others since they were knocked
out of their title quest by the Go-
phers last season, and underdog or,
not, this Michigan eleven is going to
put up quite a battle against Minne-
sota this afternoon. Those 87,000-
odd fans on hand will know they've
seen a real ball game.

everyone "pulls together" they can turn back the Wolverines.
