Michigan Will BeAtFull
Strength For First Time

With Tom Kuzma back in the line-
up, homecoming fans will see un-J
Aveiled for the first time tomorrow a
team which may surpass any eleven
that Fritz Crisler has ever coached,]
including those three great teams of
the Harmon era.
Already having shown their power
without him, the Wolverines will at
long last have the services of their
injured star of last year to bring them
up to maximum strength. Kuzma,
who has missed every game so far this
season because of a- knee injury, is
now evidently fully recovered and will
in all likelihood start 'against the
Wildcats. Even should Crisler decide
to hold him out at the kickoff Kuzma
will definitely see action, probably as
long as the game hangs in the bal-
ance.
Purple Lacks Reserves
Last week the Varsity lost to the
Iowa Seahawks 26 to 14 and behind
the defeat lay two causes: first of all,
the wearing down of the Maize and
Blue iron-men by a team rich in re-
serves and secondly, the absence of
a runner powerful enough to supple-
ment the speed and deception of the
other backs.
Thefirst cause will be largely elim-
inated this Saturday inasmuch as
Northwestern, although it has a fine

team, has neither the depth nor the
brilliant starting line boasted by the
Seahawks. The elimination of the
second cause depends upon just how
good Kuzma will be in his first start
of the year. Should the Wolverine
line live up to expectatinns and if
Kuzma is as good as he was last year,
Saturday may well see the debut of a
'dream' team in every sense of the
word.

There is every indication that Kuz-
ma should be as good as ever this
week-end if one may.take practice as
a -criterion; Practicing for. the second
day in a steady drizzle -of rain, the

and apparently had no trouble in
cutting sharply to avoid enemy tack-
lers. Meanwhile, speculation over the
starting Wolverine backfield was les-
sened yesterday as Kuzma, Capt. Cei-
thaml, Bob Wiese, and Paul White
played in the first-string backfield
this providing a tip-off that they
will be the starters.

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 16.- ()-
Minnesota still has what it takes.
That's the consensus of Gopher
football fans who, used to National
and Big Ten championships, had
something new today to think about
-a two game losing streak.
Fans who have followed the Goph-
ers year after year feel Minnesota
gained prestige in holding Bernie
Bierman's Seahawks to a 7-6 victory.
The Gopher players gave everything
they had in that game, and fans feel
that was a big factor in Illinois' 20-13
upset victory over Minnesota last
week. Minnesota was still "down"
mentally against the Illini, after
dropping the heartbreaker to Bernie,
their former coach.
But there's been a new spirit and
dash in Gopher practices this week, a
spirit that was missing before the
Illinois game, and there's a feeling
Minnesota/will be back on the victory
trail soon.
Bill Garnaas, regular quarterback,
who was injured in the Pitt game
which Minnesota won 50 to 7, still is
favoring a sore knee and probably
will not start against the Cornhusk-
ers.

EVANSTON, Ill., Oct. 16.- (P)-
After stressing pass defense and de-
claring, "We have improved a lot
since the Purdue game," Coach Lynn
Waldorf today picked a squad of 34
Northwestern players to make the
trip for the Michigan game tomor-
row.
Waldorf also went to work today
grooming the first team backfield's
running and passing plays.
The squad will leave for Dearborn,
Mich., today for a workout, leaving
for Ann Arbor at noon tomorrow.

COLUMBUS, O., Oct. 16.-(IP)-The
Big Ten's leading scorer, Gene Fekete
of Ohio State, showed up today with

Brown said he thought the fullback
would be able to play against Purdue
tomorrow.I
"However, I don't know how goodI
his condition will be," Brown remark-
ed.

News From

BENCUCOMBEB
By BUD HENDEL
Daily Sports Editor

Evanston.. .

(Eddie Salkowe, sports editor of the Northwestern Daily News, and I exchanged
columns today, the day before the Michigan-Northwestern game. Guest columnist
Salkowe's analytical column appears below.)
AFTER the Purdue debaucle last week Northwestern has more than one
incentive to win against Michigan Saturday. First, the Wildcats have a
score to settle for two consecutive defeats handed us by the Wolverines. And
the fact that we tied in '38 but haven't-won since '37 makes Pappy Waldorf's
squad all the more anxious for game time to roll around.
That 7-6 beating we took from an inspired Purdue team in our Big
Ten opener hurt a lot more than the recent Michigan losses we've taken.
Northwestern expected to win by a couple of touchdowns against the Boiler-
makers, especially after tripping Texas, but a poor first half found us one
point short at the finish.3
Naturally Northwestern is mad, mostly at itself for adopting a not
too cautious attitude last week. Things have changed now, though. It's
no secret that the team has worked hard this week this week to get back
to a level where they're ready for a Michigan team that we've been
warned is "better than their '41 team."
OTTO GRAHAM, who had maintained about a .600 passing average in the
first two games, didn't have much luck against Purdue. He was con-
stantly overshooting his receiver, who on two occasions was in the clear and
ahead of every Purdue man. He didn't receive bad protection either, so all
we can say is that Otto had a bad day-in the air. On the ground Graham
did gain 110 yards and went over for our lone touchdown.
OUR LINE is good. Ends Bob Motl and Bud Hasse are well known to
Michigan, for they've been catching passes all over the Conference
for more than two seasons. Tackles are Warren Karistad and Ray Vin-
cent, both 220-pounders, with Tony Samarzia and Bob Carlson in re-
serve.
Alex Kapter and Capt. Nick Burke are a pair of tough guards, and John
Gent is no slouch as Burke's replacement. Center Hal Hudson, playing his
first season as a regular, is living up to Northwestern's reputation for pro-
ducing steady centers. He was outstanding on defense against Purdue.
ALL WELL and good, you say, but have we forgotten that Michigan is also
on the rebound after losing to the Seahawks? No, we haven't forgotten,
and that's why this game is going to be a toss-up, just like practically every
Northwestern-Michigan game has been for the last decade. We've heard of
Ceithaml and Wistert, in fact we've seen a lot of them. And, having read of
the fine sophomore backs you have, like Chappuis, Lund and Wardley, we
respect Michigan as one of the best teams in the nation.
So far this season we've been a second half team. This week we
hope to play two halves of good football and then see what the score-
board reads. One thing is certain-Northwestern is anything but over-
confident about Michigan.
Northwestern is mad and determined, though, and using this as a basis
for a prediction in an almost unpredictable season, we'll take Northwestern
by 20 to 13.

RD

By BOB SHOPOFF
Characteristic of Crisler-coached
football teams, Michigan has had a
strong forward wall, a powerful plun-
ging tailback and a great blocking
quarterback during the reign of Fritz
Crisler.
This year is no exception in the
case of quarterback. Carrying on in
this role is Captain George Ceithaml.
When Forrest Evashevski left the
Wolverine grid machine, it was
thought that Michigan fans would
wait many a decade before they would
see a quarterback that would ap-
proach the ability of "Evie."
Makes Fans Forget
But Cy, as he is known to everyone,
is making them wonder. Last year
he took over and soon made the fans
forget the loss of Evashevski as he
helped the squad garner six victories.
But this season Capt. George is great.
Throwing slashing blocks at would-
be tackers, he has cleared the road
for more-than one Wolverine jaunt
to pay dirt.
When George plays football, he
really plays for keeps. It is because
he loves to play and also because he
hates to lose that Cy keeps right on
plugging along no matter what odds
he faces.
As the brains behind the Maize and
Blue attack, Crisler piles a lot of re-
sponsibility on the broad shoulders
of his field general. Planning the

games, which adds up to only one
minute rest. That came in the Michi-
gan State tussle when Coach Crisler
sent Bob Vernier in for the last 60
seconds.
The Wolverine captain leads all
Michigan players for endurance this
year but several others have seen a
lot of action. Bill Pritula is the second
most overworked player as he has put
in 175 minutes at the guard and cen-
ter spots. Bill is followed by big Al
Wistert with 172 minutes of playing
time.
Cy is truly a ball player's ball play-
er. The squad workhorse, he never
misses a practice and is always urging
his teammates on whether it is in
practice or on Saturday afternoon.
The former Chicago boy takes foot-
ball as seriously as one person can. He
keeps himself in top condition for the
week-end tangles with hard work.
One Ambition
George has one ambition to realize
before he completes his athletic ca-
reer at Michigan. And that must be
done October 24 when he leads the
Wolverines against Minnesota. He
has never seen the Golden Gophers
beaten yet-no player on the Michi-
gan team has-and Cy is planning on
this being the year. At least he is al-
most certain of seeing plenty of the
big Norsemen that week-end as once
again he will probably again play 60
minutes. It calls for superman stam-
ina to keep dishing it out against the
foe for one solid hour, but George
has shown that he can do it. We're
inclined to agree with him, that this
is the year to down the Gophers.
