Annual Frosh Cross-Country Run
Friday Climaxes Fall Practice
.r. ;. a . , . _ _ . a ..
Michigan's little publicized fresh-
man track squad is working hard
these days, and they have good reason
to for this Friday they will compete
in the annual freshman cross-country
run, climaxing the fall practice ses-
There is a real incentive to win
this race as every yearling is out to
prove himselfeand win one of the
coveted six medals to be awarded.
More important, if precedence is any
criterion, is the fact that the winners
of previous years have turned out to
be some of the Varsity's star perfor-
mers, so every freshman is doubly
anxious to win.
Previous Winners Star
Dave Matthews, this year's track
captain, won the event three years
ago while two of Michigan's best dis-
tance runners this fall, namely John
Ingersoll and Ernie Leonardi copped
the event in a tie the following year.
Last year another tie resulted when
the Hume brothers, Ross and Bob,
crossed the finish line first. The
Humes are at present the most prom-
ising sophomores on the Varsity.
There is a possibility that Varsity
Coach Ken Doherty will enter nine
men in the National Collegiate Cross-
Country four-mile run at East Lan-
sing November 21, depending solely
on the results of time trials during
the next 10 days. Selected for the trip
are Captain Matthews, Leonardi, the
Humes, John Roxborough, Roy Cur-
rie, Art Upton, Ingersonn and Jim
Meanwhile the Varsity is continu-
ing its stiff practice sessions, running
at least three miles every day over the
University golf course. Friday they
ran in the second time trials of the
year with Ingersoll placing first with
a time of 18:20 for the 31 mile
This afternoon the squad journeys
to Ypsilanti, running the Normal
Harriers in a practice meet in which
no score will be kept.
Ben Hogan Quits Golf
to Take Pilot Training
TULSA, Okla., Nov. 9.-(IP)-Little
Ben Hogan, leading money winner
among professional golfers for the
last three years, announced today
that he was abandoning golf for the
duration and enrolling as a civilian
student at a flying school here.
Hogan, 30 and too old to be taken
into the Army for combat pilot train-
ing, said that he hoped to find some
place in the war effort after he gains
his pilot's license.

mother-in-law for your pocketbook.
LAST WEEK the title looked to be
safely stored away in the vaults of
Wisconsin, but Dr. Eddie Anderson
concocted one of those formulas he
learned in Medical School, injected
it into the trusty right arm of Tom
Farmer, and the Badgers all went
back to Wisconsin with a pretty good
idea of what makes Anderson the
highest paid coach. in the Big Ten.
Iowa not only beat the title-bound
Badgers, Iowa humiliated them. The
Hawkeyes held Wisconsin scoreless,
the first time since 1939 that anybody
has done that.
And then there was Minnesota.
The Golden Gophers had lost to
Illinois, but they were rolling mer-
rily along after successive victories
over our own Wolverines and every-
body's household pets, the meow-
ing Wildkittens of Northwestern.
Then out of the clear blue sky an
Indiana* team that it was said had
already hit its peak journeyed up
to Minneapolis last week and tar-
isbed the lustrous gold of the Go-
phers by a score of 7-0,on a strike

lenbrand to a gent by the name of
SO NOW WHAT? So now Michigan
can win the title, that's what. If
Michigan beats Ohio State and Iowa,
a task which doesn't seem as easy as
it might sound, and if Ohio State de-
feats Illinois and Minnesota sends'
Wisconsin skidding again, our Wol-
Verines will be what a lot of people
have always suspected, a champion-7
ship aggregation in the toughest pig-
skin loop in the nation.
Michigan can't do anything
aboutthe Conference this week, a
slight matter of a trip to South
Bend and a game with Notre Dame
standing in the way, but Ohio State
can. The Buckeyes can polish off
the Illini and Michigan will be one
step closer to the promised land.
But if Illinois should beat the
Bucks, then the wonder team from
Champaignwill be practically as-
sured of at least a tie for the title
as only Iowa will be in a position to
excel the Illini record of four wins
and one defeat, and it seems likely
that either Michigan or Minnesota
will best the in-and-out Hawkeyes.
All in all, the title is snarled up in a
kniot tighter than the one in your
shoelace when you're in a hurry. Not
since 1928, when Illinois broke away
from a bunched field in the closing
games, has there been a comparable
'situation. If you want to know who'll
win, just go to the most centrally lo-
cated of all Midwestern psychiatric
institutes and the rival coaches will
tell you. A hospital trip for Frank
Leahy helped Notre Dame regain its
stride, and the Big Ten mentors are
just about ready to try this new-

NEW YORK; Nov. 9.- ()- Last
Saturday's collection of upsets ap-
parently only convinced the nation's
sports writers that this year's capital
of the football universe is located in
the state of Georgia.
The University Bulldogs remain on
top in the fifth week of the Associated

Tech Engineers are only 100 points'
behind in second place.
That's a climb of one position for
the athletes of the veteran Bill Alex-
ander who, a week ago, were third be-
hind Georgia and Wisconsin. The
Badgers, upended' by Iowa, skidded
all the way to seventh.
Eagles Continue Pace
Boston College continued its climb,
finishing third with Notre Dame
fourth. Alabama, in second place the
first three weeks but eighth after its
defeat by Georgia, improved its posi-
tion and grabbed the fifth rung.

Battle Is SellQut
SOUTH BEND, Ind., Nov. 9.- (P)-
University of Notre'Dame ticket man-
ager Robert .M' Cahill today reported
a sell-out for the Michigan football
game here Saturday-the first foot-
ball game between the Irish and the
Wolverines since 199.
Resting his first team, Coach Frank
Leahy put his second and third-string
squads through dummy scrimmage.
The Irish victory over the Army last
week resulted in :inuries to Russell
(Pete) Ashbaugh, right halfback, and
Corwin Clatt, fullback, Notre Dame's
leading ground gainers in the last,
four games. It was thought likely that
both would be in shape for Saturday's
With the rest of the squad in good
shape Leahy has stiff workouts sched-
uled for-the rest of the we.ek in prepa-
ration for the Wolverines. Ieahy indi-
cated that :defensive practices would
center around .stopping 'Michigan's
hard-running backs and that from
now until Saturday the Irish may ex-
pect plentyfo L.Michigan plays.

Casualties in Uniform
All three of Michigan's casualty list,
Tom Kuzma, Don Robinson and Dcn
Boor, were in uniform, and only Boor
appeared a doubtful bet to be reary
for the Irish tussle. Don still has to
favor that bad ankle. The rest of tLe
squad came through the Crimson
clash fit and with a determined
"bring on those Irish" attitude.
Moving pictures of the Harvard
game shown the squad yesterday -re-
vealed the ever present and disturbirg
fact that although the 'Wolverines
captured four stray Crimson aerias,
their pass defense is still woefuly
weak. For it was a long toss from Don
Richards to Wayne Johnson that:set

Add to this glaring weakness the
fact that the Wolverines will be facineg
Notre Dame's great passer, Angeio
Bertelli, and you have a situation thf t
spells nothing but trouble for Mich'-

122 WEST WASHINGTON
Today, according to Vichy, German
dive-bombers were attacking British
and U.S. reinforcements landing at
Algiers. The Allied communique
made no mention of such attacks,
saying merely that the American oc-
cupation of the city and immediate
vicinity began at 7 p.m. G.M.T. Sun-
Vichy forces in eastern Algeria and
Tunisia, meantime, were making
frantic, attempts to resist avowed
American intentions of sweeping
eastward through those territories
to attack the shattered German-Ital-
ian armies in Libya.
In an order of the day, quoted by
radio Paris, GeneralBarre, the com-
mander-in-chief of Tunisia, declared
to his troops:
"Our task of soldiers is clear and
unequivocal. We will be attacked and
we will defend ourselves."
For the time being, however, the
main French resistance was in the
Oran area and in North Morocco,
under the command of Gen. Auguste
At Oran, as well as at Casablanca,
the Americans were making a general
attack after employing the same en-
circlement tactics used at Algiers, the
Vichy radio said.
By end of the afternoon the at-
tackers of Oran had made important
gains, Vichy admitted. The only air-
port left to the Vichy defenders in
this area appeared to be the one at
the naval station of Mers El Kebir,
just northwest of Oran.
Vichy also viewed the Casablanca
situation with deep pessimism.
Despite the use of reinforcements
from inland cities and some early
claims of reulse of the American
landing forces, Radio Vichy an-
nounced tonight that' three columns
of United States troops, coming from
the Fedhala beachhead, had battered
