Varsity Leaves For Minnesota Today
In New Quest For Little Brown Jug


"Little Brown Jug how we'd love to
have you."
That's a variation from the old
jingle, but as far as any loyal Michi-
gan gridiron fan is concerned it's
much closer to the truth. For the past
eight years, Wolverine football squads
have been thirsting for a husky vic-
tory swig from the historic piece of

crockery, but in vain have they hoped
and tried, because for eight years, the
glittering Gophers have proved just
too tough or too tricky or too what-
ever it is that enables one team to
build up a jinx over another.
This year, however, Michigan
stands in better position to capture

the Jug than in any of the past eight
seasons. Reasons are obvious to any
close follower of the two clubs, but
let's take time to enumerate a few.
1. On the basis of their perfor-
mance in the past four games, Michi-
gan's first string line is probably the
best forward wall aggregation in the
country, and that includes better
than Minnesota's.
Backfield Strong
2. Michigan has also one of the
finest, if not the finest running and
passing attacks shown this season,
and a galaxy of backfield reserves
and regulars who have. proved they
can score against any major team you
want to throw up against them. ,
3. And according to many observ-
ers, the most important point, Minne-
sota no longer has Bernie Bierman
at the gridiron helm. This doesn't
mean to cast aspersions on the ability
of the present Gopher mentor, Dr.
George Hauser, former line coach, but
there are few coaches like Bierman
in the football world, and fewer still
are the equally capable men to re-
place them. All we need say to sup-
port this point is look at the Gopher
record this year which sports losses
to the Iowa Cadets and Illinois.
33' To Make Trip
Thirty-three Michigan gridders will
leave Ann Arbor tomorrow morning
for parts North in quest of Gopher
pelts, and it won't be just an ordi-
nary hunting trip. The Wolverines
will be seeking revenge, cold revenge
for those humiliating eight straight
losses and revenge for the times in
which it was just that perennial lone
loss to the Gophers which knocked
them out of the Big Ten title race.
Those players making the trip are:

Elmer Madar, Chuck Kennedy, Cliff

partment at Minnesota is some-
what nettled. Fred Delano, Michigan
Athletic Publicity Director, blew into
Minneapolis the other day, but before
he arrived he sent a terse wire to Tom
Steward, the Gopher Public Relations
boss, and this little announcement
has caused annoyance, irritation and
a lot of talk in the camp of the Norse-
Wired Delano: "Will be in town
tomorrow and plan to hold a press
conference with the idea of explain-
ing, in advance, just what we're going'
to do to you Saturday."
The mighty Gophers were taken
aback by this show of confidence
on the part of Delano, representing,
as he does, a team which hasn't
managed to come out first against
Minnesota in nine years. Publicitor
Steward didn't say whether or not
Delano signed "regards" or "no re-
gards", but he did say that he didn't
see any reason for Minnesota's{
victory streak over the Wolverines
to stop at eight straight.
ON PAPER this tilt stacks upas the
top game of the week, even bigger
than the Illinois-Notre Dame strug-
gle. The reason is clear and simple.
The Michigan-Minnesota rivalry is
too strong, too colorful to be shoved
into the background by any other
gridiron fray. Every year it is a game

of national importance, and every
year it matches two teams of prac-
tically equal strength with spirit and
a nearly ferocious will to win. Over
the span of the last four years, no two
teams in the nation could be rated
above the Wolverines and Gophers.
And over that period the Gophers
hold slight edge on the Wolverines
because they have won this important
yearly battle, and they weren't always
On the season record, Michigan
should finally accomplish its aim
this Saturday. The Maize and Blue,
with its great roster of backfield stars
and its sturdy line of the "Seven Oak
Posts", should break the Minnesota
jinx with a hard, decisive victory.
But football games are not won
on past records. The Gophers have
just broken even in four contests
this season, losing to the Iowa Sea-
hawks and to the surprising band
from Illinois. But in neither game
was the outcome without question
until the final moments. A break in
another direction in, both defeats
would have kept the Gopher string
of victories alive. And don't forget
that Minnesota hasn't been at .full
strength since its season, opener
with Pitt. Last week, three of the
first team backfield sat on the
bench while their teammates rolled
over Nebraska. The three were Bill
Daley, Herm Frickey, and Bill Gar-
naas, and all three will be ready for
the Wolverines Saturday.
primed for this game. It's the high
point of the Wolverine campaign, and
a victory over the Gophers will come
as the feast after the famine. New
plays have been introduced to the
Michigan attack, and the old ones
have been given a thorough polishing.
From Coach Fritz Crisler down, this
is the game of the year.
Statistically speaking, the two foes
are on an even par. Michigan get9 the
nod in the matter of defense, and the
Gophers have an advantage in the
offense department, according to the
latest figures. All these figures can be
tossed to the wind Saturday. This is
Michigan's greatest chance to win
possession of the Little Brown Jug,
which has come to be emblematic of
Midwestern gridiron supremacy, and
only better football on the field of
Minneapolis' Memorial Stadium, not
a group of jumbled numbers, will turn
the trick.

in preparation for Michigan.

Doubler-The Two -Timing

Work pays dividends as Gopher
quarterback Bill Garnaas would love
to tell you; for Bill blossomed out as
a real star last year after a disheart-
ening season as a "bomber", Minne-
sota counterpart of a Michigan "red
Sweat and discouragement used to
be Bill's sad lot. Night after night he
would drag himself home after prac-
tice, too tired to do anything except
eat and fall into bed. Determined to
keep his good marks, Brainy Bill
would have to get up at -the bleary
hour of 4 a. m. to do his scholastic
Daily he was faced with the ques-
tion: "Is football worth it?" Bill came
to the conclusion that it was worth
the unrewarded toil, for he stuck it
out until he got his chance.
By last fall the Gopher coaches
thought that Garnaas had assimi-
lated enough football knowledge to
make a Minnesota quarterback. They
thought rightly,, for Bill gave the per-
formance of a tried and tested vet-
eran in piloting the Maroon and Gold
to a win over Washington in the first
game of the season.
Since then, Bill has been a fixture
in the Minnesota bacb 2_3. A fine
signal-caller and a good blocker, he
rarely calls his own number. However,
Michigan fans will remember his
fingertip catch of Bruce Smith's pass
that set up the Golden Gophers' only
and game-winning touchdown last
year. Bill then proved his accurate
place-kicking with his perfect boot
for the extra point. Also, he wrecked
Michigan's last quarter threats with
two pass interceptions, one in the end
zone, to end *ichigan's biggest threat
