(Special To The Daily)
NEW YORK, N.Y., Nov. 14.-Professor Lou Little, who cracks the
whip above the football Lions of Columbia, had just one serious thing to
say to the usual group of reporters and coaches gathered for luncheon at
John Jay Hall today--but that one commitment may well be the key to to-
morrow's Michigan-Columbia intersectional clash at Baker Field.
MAESTRO LITTLE was in an elfish mood for the most part as he
joked and kidded with the assembled members of the press. But he
was finally drawn out to the extent of admitting that his Lion outfit is
being buoyed, uplifted by that intangible thing called spirit for this
Wolverine battle.
"You can always tell when -a Columbia team is 'up' for game by testing
feeling among the students," Lou declared. "Some teams come in and
nothing happens. Others come in and the campus gives off emanations
which are absorbed by the players, who become 'high.' And Michigan is
that sort of team," Little pointed out.
A4tCORDING to sideline observers at Columbia grid drills, the Lions
I are conceding exactly nothing to, Crisler's favored gang. They give
themselves a great chance to win over the mighty Midwesterners.
Outside of this, however, Little had little to say of importance. "Oh
yes, we'll take care of Michigan all right," he grinned. "Don't worry about
that. We'll give every one of those nice boys an outside room with a
shower and we'll take them to movies if the waryt to go. We'll 'even take
them sightseeing to the Empire State Building."
STRONOMY 31 teaches you that Astrology is not an exact science;
So don't bet your bankroll on wha£~Miss Frances Drake, world-fam-
ous astrologist said here in New York today about the game. It makes
for interesting reading, though.
Basing her predictions on. stars, Miss Drake's horoscope reveals that
Michigan holds a planetar edge over Columbia. Recently she predicted
correctly the Lions' upset win over Cornell.
"There are many planets in unfriendly aspect on Nov. 15 for Lou
Little's boys," Miss Drake declared. Of Tom Kuzma, Wolverine sopho-
more ace, she has this to report: "This player (Aries) shows an individ-
ual who does the unusual and dares the impossible. He should add to
previous laurels on the 15th. He is unpredictable, and this very quality
is favored most on this date." .

start tomorrow's contest, the Wol-
verines will be on the verge of putting
under fire a record for intersectional
football success that few teams, if
any, can match.
In the past 15 years, Maize and
Blue grid teams have engaged in 21
games with teams -from outside the
midwest. On 19 of those occasions,
they have emerged victorious, once
they were tied, and once they sus-
tained a one-touchdown defeat.
Two Wins Over Lions
As for their record against their op-
ponents of tomorrow during this pe-
riod, the two teams have clashed but
twice with Michigan winning both,
even though the games were played
during the lean Wolverine years of
1935 and 1936. Harry Kipke's clubs
took 19-7 and 13-0 victories from the
Lions in those campaigns.
An added feature of tomorrow's
contest is that it will mark tlje only
appearance of Michigan's Capt. West-
fall on an eastern gridiron during
the 1941 season and should-have con-
siderable bearing on the possibility

gressiveness. Siegal is the' squad's
best pass receiver and extremely dan-
gerous if allowed to get past the op-
position secondary:
Ray Makofske and Capt. Herb4
Maack will handle the tackle chores
and will be, barring late changes, the
only two boys in the Columbia lineup
who tip the scale at better than 190.
Makofske weighs in at 192 and the
Lion leader tops him by a single
Watchcharm Guards
The guard posts will be ably
handled by a couple of watchcharm
linemen, Felix DiMirtini and Bill
Sinton, both of whom scale exactly
181. Throw into' this forward wall a
vest-pocket center who answers to the
monicker of Ted Ruberti, a boy who
moves the scale needle all the way
around to the 178 mark, and you have
the Columbia line, small but fast, out-
weighed but seldom outcharged.
A former Detroit Cooley High
School student will be in the fullback


will definitely be the boy to watch
tomorrow, inasmuch as Michigan has
never been famed for its pass defense.
Two more backfield stars who will
see plenty of action tomorrow are
Ken Germann and tiny Adam-Spiegel.
Both have caused opposing tacklers
no end of concern during the games
played by the Lions thus far and
either, when shaken into an opposing
backfield, is liable to go all the way.
Few Varsity Chages
Michigan will present few lineup
changes in tomorrow's game and the
only starting positions around which
there is some doubt are the ends.
However, it seems likely that the
flank posts will go to Harlin (Whitey)
Fraumann and Phil Sharpa. It will
be Sharpe's first starting job al-
though he played all but five minutes
of the Illinois game and turned in a
masterful exhibition, both on offense
and defense.

TIME on my hands...
GARG on my mind.«

A powerful Ann Arbor High School'
team wound up an undefeated foot-
ball season and walked off with the
"5-A" championship by drubbing
Jackson High at Wines Field last
night by the score of 26-7.
All of the Pioneers' scoring was
chalked up by Capt. Dick Walter-
house and fullback Ralph Chubb, two
sensational seniors playing their last
game for Ann Arbor.
A record-breaking crowd of 6,500
fans saw Chubb climax a 95-yard
march for the first score on/a smash
from the 15-yard line. Walterhouse's
plunge from the 2-yard line gave the
locals their second score after the
Purple had marched 35 yards in the
second quarter.

In the third period, Chubb broke
through the Jackson line on a spinner
and raced 65 yards for another touch-
down, while speedy Walterhouse hung
up his team's final yore on a 3-yard
slant off tackle in the last quarter.
Walterhouse's two touchdowns and
two extra points gave him a total of
126 points for the season.
Horace Smith, who chalked igp well
over half the yardage made by the
visitors, climaxed a 75-yard march in
which he did the brunt of the ball-
carrying by bucking over from the
2-yard line for Jackson's only score.
The triumph was Ann Arbor's sev-
enth against a lone tie at the hands
of Lansing Central.{
