Robinson Scores Twice.
During 20-0_Triumph
It was a day of reminiscing yester-
day, a day that recalled the exploits,
of the Harmon and Evashevski fresh-
man crew of 1937. Remember whenj
that squad, clad in the red uniforms-
of obscurity, often trounced the
mighty blue-shirted varsity? Yester-
day it was a reserve band of men that
triumphed over a top notch first
The reserves were again led by
Don Robinson, the Detroit sopho-
more tailback. Don scored twice on
runs and heaved a short pass to Bob.
Shemky for the third six-point score.
Adding a safety to tihe work of the
day, the reserves tramped off of the
wet Ferry Field with a 20-0 victory
under their muddy shoes.
Although " the conditions weren't
exactly that which everybody would
desire, the grass just soaked the rain
all up and allowed for a fine game.
The men played a lot of football, and
it's reasonable to say that the victors
didn't mind the constant drizzle at
Today, rain or shine, there will be
,,p Michigan football played on prac-
tice field or on the real field of battle.
Coach Crisler is going to let them go
their own ways until practice resumes
Monday in prepaiation for the.Col-
umbia game one week from today.
While the gridders whittle away
their first Saturday since the .start
of the current school year, they, along
with Michigan fans, will probably
follow the attempts of Columbia who
play a strong Pensylvania eleven,
beaten only by the great service squad
from Annapolis-the Navy. Mayfbe the
Lions would like to trade places with
the Wolverines.
All eligible sophomores and sec-
onad semester freshmen interested
in trying out for basketball man-
agers, report any Monday, Wed-

Both Buckeyes, Columbia Lions
Carry A Real' Scoring . Punch

With the Wolverine gridders taking
a rest cure today from the active
football wars in which they have been
engaged without a let-up since the
beginning of the season, this might
be a good time to take a look into th
future at the opponents Michigan will
face in the last two games.
Neither the Columbia Lions, whom
Michigan encounters in New York on
November '15, nor the Ohio State
Buckeyes, whom the Wolverines playk
at home in the season's finale on
November 22, can sport a record as
good as the Michigan team but both
have shown plenty of power at vari-
ous times during the season and the
Wolverines will undoubtedly encoun-
ter much trouble before either of
these opponents can be counted out.
Lions Win Three Straight
The Lions, under the wily tutelage
of their veteran coach, Lou Little,
have won three games this season
while losing two, one to Georgia by a
7-0 count, and the other one being
a 13-0 setback~ at the hands of the
Army. Compare this mediocre record
to that of the Wolverines, who have
icst -only that one heartbreaker to
Minnesota, and add in the fact that
Columbia plays a mighty powerful
Penn team this week while Michigan
is resting, and the chances for the
Lions, to vanquish Michigan seem to
be about as dark as a picture of a
coal mine in a blackout.
But as is so usual in this unpredict-
able realm of football, 'a record of the
scores does not give a true picture
of the situation. The Lions, in spite
of their two setbacks, have been
acclaimed 'as one of the best teams in
the East, by their opponents as well
as by sportswriters the country over,
especially since that win over Cornell
last week.
Governali Triple Threat
Lou Little, moreover, has turned
up several stars on this year's aggre-
gation in the persons of Paul Gover-
nali, a triple-threat back who is
probably the best Lion passer since'
the great -Sid; Luckman, and Adam
Spiegel; aiother outstanding threat
in the backfield./In view of all this,
the Columbia team cannot be sold
short when they encounter the Wol-
verines next week.
Starting out the season as a mys-

tery team because of the presence of
the ex-Massillon High coaching ge-
nius, Paul Brown, in the coach's
shoes, the Buckeyes quickly began to
put to rout the jeers of the masses


who claimed that a high school coach
would not fit into a major college
set-up. Later in the season, however,
the Ohio State team bogged down,
and last week they were only able
to defeat the hapless Pitt Panthers
by a 21-14 score, the same Panthers
whom Michigan had walloped, 40-0,
earlier in the season.
Ohio State Displays Power
So nobody is able to venture an
opinion on the merits of the Buck-
eyes-either they are one of the most
over-rated teams in the country or
they do possess some power which
they only display in spurts. Consid-
ering the fact, though, that the Ohio
State team always points especially
for the Michigan contest and also
that Paul Brown would like nothing
better than a victory over the Wol-
verines to prove his worth, then the
Buckeyes cannot be counted out of
the picture and must be regarded as
a very strong opponent for the 1941
edition of the Wolverines.

Middies' Line
Hopes To Stop
Irish Passing
Nebraska Unlikely To Halt
Minnesota; Stanford Is
Favored Over UCLA
BALTIMORE, Nov.'7-0-)--Tack a t
football frenzy onto a national de-
fense boom, and you have a picture-
a very confused picture, if it is to be
a true one-of the city of Baltimore
on the eve of the Navy-Notre Dame
football game.
A statistician figured out the other
day that defense industries have
brought a quarter of a million persons
into this city in recent months. To-
morrow the 15th meeting of the Mid-
shipmen and the Irish, each this time
undefeated though once tied, will
pack 66,000 into Municipal Stadium,
and fully half of those will be from
out of town.
Navy Usually Underdog
Adding to the clamor is the fact
Navy, for once, is the favorite. The
sailors have beaten Notre Dame three
times in their series, but on each of
those occasions their victories were
considered upsets. They're not given
much of an edge for tomorrow, but
get what little there is.
Notre Dame needs a clear day for
the passes of sophomore Angelo Ber-
teli, and the weatherman's with
them. But the Middies have two big,
fast lines to disrupt Bertelli's pro-
tection, a powerful running game and
for one of the few times in the series
have a man-power edge. Navy should
win this one.
Some of the little fellows in today's
game may be Davids withia slingshot,
and this is a perfect spot for an up-
heaval. Several of the undefeated
combines-Fordham; Duke, Texas
and others-already have focussed
their sights on post-season bowl bids
and are in'a spot to be ambushed.
Panthers Improving
Fordham's frolicksome Rams, for
instance, have a date at Pittsburgh
with a Pitt team that hasn't won a
game this season and should not be
expected to win now-yet observers
say the Panthers have been improv-
ing and might cause a catastrophe if
they catch Fordham off guard.
Crippled Minnesota must face Neb-
raska's Cornhuskers, seething from
three straight defeats, but should
win. Texas is up against Baylor and
the Texas Aggies take on Southern
Methodist in a pair of battles in the
Southwest Conference, where any-
thing can happen. Rose Bowl minded
Stanford tackles Southern California,
no longer formidable, and Duke's dy-
namiting Blue Devils are looking for-
ward to an easy chore against David-
Army Meets Harvard
Unbeaten Army, which held the
Irish to a stalemate last Saturday,
and Harvard, which deadlocked the
Middies earlier, will be paired in one
of the East's top games. The Ivy
League will bring together Yale-Cor-
nell, Columbia-Penn and Dartmouth-,
Syracse, beaten only by Cornell,
will collide with Penn State's dan-
gerous Lions, Holy Cross meets
Brown, and Villanova and Templd
tangle in a toughy.
The day's foremost fight in the
South will be between resurgent Tu-
lane and Alabama, which has its
heart set on the Southeastern Con-
ference crown.
Stenberg Declared
Ineligible By Board
Bob Stenberg, third string Michi-
gan fullback, has been declared in-
eligible by the Board in Control of
Athletics, the Associated Press re-

ported last night.
Stenberg transferred from the
University of Chicago last year but it
was found that he had a deficiency
in an English course there. The West-
ern Conference rules require that stu-
dents with a grade deficiency must
spend two years at schools to which
they transfer before they become eli-
gible for Intercollegiate Athletics.
Bob played less than three minutes
this season against Pittsburgh.
Members of the board poipted out
that Stenberg had maintained nearly
a "B" average at Michigan and that
his grades. at Chicago were all good,
with the exceptien of the deficiency.
They described him as "an excellent
Stenberg had a "B" average on the
English course at Chicago but illness
prevented him from taking a compre-
hensive final examination, which ac-
counted for the deficiency.
