Spartans Face
Purdue Next
EAST LANSING, Nov. 12.-(P)-A
triumph over Purdue here tomorrow
is needed to give Michigan State a
mathematical chance of finishing the
1943 campaign above the .500 mark.
With the Boilermakers, West Vir-
ginia and Oregon State still to be en-
countered, the Spartans hold a record
of two victories, three defeats and a
tie. To equal their 1941 record, they
must sweep the last three games.
Bachman announced that neither
halfback Wally Pawlowski nor full-
back Ed Ripmasted would be off the
hospital list; and indicated that Edo
Mencotti, Detroit sophomore, would
make his debut at right halfback. :
Both Mencotti and tackle Glenn
Deibert are back in the good graces
of the coaches after being dropped
from the roster prior to last week's
game with Washington State in what
Bachman described as a disciplinary

ball 50 yards in the air from the line
of scrimmage.
Pitted against Walterhouse will be
Phil Durant, Spartan pacemaker from
Wheaton, Ill., home of Red Grange.
Durant is rated plenty good as a
triple-threater and should give the
home town boys trouble before the
day is over.
Renner Is Out
Michigari's lineup will be weakened
for today's game because Art Renner
who was slated to start at left end
has an injured hand and will be un-
able to play. Varskin Baydarian will
get the call at Renner's former spot,
with Lehman Beardsley at the other
The starting tackles will be Jack
Emerick and Bill Pratt. George Krae-

ger will be in there at left guard when
the game- begins, but may later be
shifted to the left tackle position if
needed. The other guard will be Henry
Mantho, All-Stater from Alliance,
Ohio. Frank Kern who starred at
Catholic Central in Detroit, will be
the Michigan pivotman.
Walterhouse to Start
In the backfield, Coach Weber will
start Ervin Derda from South Bend
at quarter, Dick Walterhouse and Bob
Nussbaumer, a fleet-footed lad from
Oak Park, Ill., at the halves, and

from Ann Arbor High School, at full-
A Michigan captain will be elected
just before game time, and he will
lead the team onto the field. The offi-
cials for the game are Ray Fisher,
Earl Riskey, and Jimmy James, all of
the Michigan staff. There is no ad-
mission charge for the contest, and

Can Bertelli Pierce
Michigan Defenses?
Tomorrow Will Tell
During the pre-game warmups this
Saturday you can bet your boots that
more people will be looking for a
slim Italian named Bertelli than for
any other player. The reason? He
is one of the nation's greatest passers
and most publicized players in many
a year.
Why all this fuss about an ordi-
nary-looking fellow who happens to
belong to Frank Leahy's football
team? Bertelli had a sensational sea-
son last year as a sophomore; he
completed 70 out of 123 passes for'
the remarkable total of 1027 yards,
his heaves leading to 15 touchdowns.
With such a reputation it is small
wonder that all eyes were focused on
him this year. Shifted to quarter-
back, Bert got off to a slow start.
However, as soon as Harry Wright,
1941 quarterback and 1942 guard,
relieved him of the signal-calling
burden, Angelo really got going. Up
to last Saturday he had connected
with 40 out of 85 attempts for 621
yards.rLast week against Army the
Irish relied most heavily on a ground
attack, but one touchdown came from
a Bertelli pass. As accurate a place-
kicker as he is a passer, Angelo has
also been forced to do Notre Dame's,
punting on account of injuries to key
men "Dippy" Evans and Creighton
So confident are the Irish of Bert's
accuracy that they often line up in
a double wing formation with the
ends wide, just broadcasting to the
world that a pass is on deck-and
not a one of these passes has yet been
intercepted, thanks to Angelo's hair-
breadth accuracy in his heaving.
Michigan's pass defense had better
be sharp, because Bertelli uses bullets
that have pierced the armor of many
a team, and Michigan doesn't want
to be one of them.

Daily Sports Editor
FIELDING H. YOST was poring into
the past yesterday.
The Great Scalper, white-haired
now, ambled into The Daily offices
yesterday afternoon and asked for
The Daily file of 1909, the last year
Michigan met Notre Dame on the
gridiron and the only time in nine
games that Notre Dame got the best
of the Wolverines.
"We had spirit," Yost remarked,
"the kind of spirit that never dies.
If you let it die, you'll die with it.
You know," he chuckled, "you can't
put it on and take it off like a coat."
"Yes," he went on, "I remember
that 1909 game. It was a real game,
and I still think we should have won.
'Red' Miller, their halfback, was one
of the best, and he sure did have us
chasing him that day.
"It was that game," declared the
'Grand Old Man,' "that made me
decide Michigan needed a new cen-
ter. I had a boy named Andy Smith
on the squad a reserve tackle. His
son, Bill,; was the regular right
tackle here in 1939, and Bill's with
the Air Corps in the Pacific now."
Yost came back to Andy Smith and
said, "Well, I made a center out of
Andy. We played Penm the week after
that Notre Dame game, and in those
days travel took a lot of time. He had
never centered a ball before, and I
taught him how in the aisle of the
train. All the way to Philadelphia,
Smith was spread out over a ball pass-
ing it back to the halfbacks."
"When we got to Philadelphia, I
marked a 'irle on the wall of his
hotel room and told him to keep
pegging away until game time.
Well, he never did make a bad pass
the next day and we beat Penn 12
to 6," concluded Yost.,
HE DIDN'T want to say anything
about the break in relations be-
tween Notre Dame and Michigan after
the 1909 fracas, but he pointed to a
yellowed passage in the old Daily and
said, "See that. It's about Johnny
Longman, coach of Notre Dame. He
played football under me here at
Michigan and then came back to beat
me. That was pretty good," Yost
We left the Great Scalper then to
let him read and re-read the stories
about his great teams of yester-
year. Not much later, he walked
out of the building, as quietly as he
had entered. Few pedple even knew
he was there, but everybody will
always know that Yost is Michigan.

IN CASE YOU didn't know it, Michi-
gan was handed a football victory
by Notre Dame this week." Not the
game to be played tomorrow, but one
that took place in 1888.
According to the Wolverine rec-
ords, only one contest occurred that
year, but in South Bend, the offi-
cials have Michigan marked down
for two triumphs. The Irish claim
that two games were ilayed, on
successive days, and that Michigan
won them both. Wolverine records
admit the first win, 26-6 on April
20, but only in the files of the Notre
Dame Scholastic, Irish campus
newspaper, can the second tilt be
found, a 10-4 Wolverine victory on
April 21. Fred Delano, Michigan
publicity director, has accepted the
victory and it will be written in the
Michigan books, thus making the
Wolverine-Rambler series stand at
8 to 1 in favor of Michigan.

Faced with its stiffest test of the
season, the 34-man Michigan football
squad entrains at 1:30 p. m. today on
the Mercury for South Bend, Ind., and
tomorrow's titanic struggle with a
pwrhous Notre Dame eleven.
Only flaw in the picture is the
doubtful status of the three injured
Wolverine ball carriers, Tom Kuzma,
Don Robinson and Don Boor. Kuzma
and Boor have tender ankles, while
Robbie's shoulder is still sore. While
all three may see action, they are
I uncertain quantities.
Evans Is Out
There was a cheerful note from the
enemy camp for Wolverine fans. A
late report informed The Michigan
Daily that Owen (Dippy) Evans,
Notre Dame's great back, was defi-
nitely out of action and would not
play. Evans has seen only two minutes
of actual play all season.
Michigan's squad, augmented by
Coaches Fritz Crisler, Earl Martineau,
Clarence Munn and Bennie Ooster-
baan, Trainer Ray Roberts, Ticket
Manager Harry Tillotson, Dr. A. W.
Coxon and Manager Jim Kline, will
arrive at Niles, Ind. (10 miles from
South Bend), at 4:27 p. m. today.
Crisler Picks 34
The entire group will be housed at
the Elkhart Hotel. The return trip
will be made tomorrow with the train
scheduled to leave Niles at 7:02 p. m.,
Educated Toe of Brieske
Pitted Against Bertelli's
The automatic toe of center Jim
Brieske will have its stiffest test of
the season tomorrow afternoon at
South Bend, Ind., when Michigan
meets Notre Dame..
Brieske's point-kicking genius will
be pitted against the wizardry of An-
gelo Bertelli who is also adept with
his right toe. Who knows whether
victory will hinge on their respective
Brieske has booted across 19 out of
21, the last 12 in a row. Bertelli, Irish
passing ace, has kicked 16 out of 20,
the last eight in succession.
NEW YORK, Nov. 12.- (AP)- The
curly-haired Newark kid, Allie Stolz,
will take another crack at the :long
climb to lightweight heights tomorrow
night when he tangles in Madison
Square Garden with Sid Walker, the
buzz-saw who fights under the name
of Beau Jack. Allie is 5 to 9 favorite.
