Dvily Sports Editor
SOUTH BEND Nov. 13.-It's Michigan and Ntre Dame here tomorrow,
and not even the latest war news can steal the centerof conversation
wherever groups of people are gathered.
But there was one spot in the lobby of the Hotel Oliver here to-
night where the talk didn't revolve around the impending struggle in
picturesque Notre Dame Stadium tomorrow. Instead a group of prom-
inent athletic officials were discussing the-future of football in war-
THE PREDOMINANT OPINION among these gentlemen was that foot-
ball should not be dropped from the American scene. One man in
particular, whose name is being withheld by request, stated that if the
gridiron sport is discontinued after this season, it will"be only because of
the same athletic-haters who have been crying for the banishment of
football for the last decade and more.
He said, and it's worth quoting, "The heads of various colleges
in this country have been trying to abolish football for a long time,
and they see their opportunity now because of the war. They disguise
themselves as super-patriots and in the name of a more successful
prosecution of the war, they seek to cut out a great builder of Ameri-
can youth and spirit.
"And they won't stop after the war is over. Once they've succeeded,
they'll make it tougher than ever for football to get back in the good
graces of American universities. All that is needed'now for them to have
their way is an announcement from one of ,the leading universities that
football will not be on its program for the duration. That will send all
the others flocking into line, and the grid sport will be out, and not only
for the duration. Mark my words, if they once gain control, we'll never get
it back.
"On the otherside, if some large school would announce that it
will continue football regardless of the gate losses, the puny brand of
football played, and all other consequences, most of the nation's uni-
versities would swing into the procession. After all, the government
has told us that it wants football to continue in order to build up mor-
ale and to Make American youth more competition minded and more
able to face the perils of battle.
"The president of the university who has the guts enough to look the
dwindling receipts in the eye and exclaim that his school will not stop
playing football will be doing the country and youth in general a great
favor. The boys want to play football, and what's the difference how good
they are as long as we give them their chance? It won't sabotage the war
We thought we'd pass his ideas along to you. It's the best we've
heard on the subject, and quite frankly, we agree.

Reports dribbling from Lafayette,

that Purdue will be its strongest in

including shifty Kenny Smock, left
halfback, are -expected to return to
action after missing the Great Lakes

NEW YORK, Nov.13.- 0P)- Little
Sammy Angott, the swarthy slugger
who has made a habit of upsets in
his seven-year career of throwing
punches, today announced his abdi-
cation as World Lightweight Cham-
pion and his retirement from the ring.
"I've quit for good," he said flatly
at his Washington, Pennsylvania
home, after Abe Greene, president of
the National Boxing Association, had
disclosed that 27-year-old Sammy's
manager, Charley Jones of Louisville,
hd wired the NBA the news, which
comes just a few weeks after Heavy-
weight Champion Joe Louis startled
the fistic world with a similar an-

Michigan Batil
for First Time

Attack; Ramblers Rule.
(Continued from Page 1)
t cope with the dangerous passing arm
- of sensatiorial Rambler quarterback
Angelo Bertelli.
The Irish, operating from both a
r T - formation and a conventional
- Notre Dame box, call upon Bertelli
for the brunt 'of
the offensive work.
This season the
brilliant junior has
added running
ability to his al-
~.ready famed pitch-
ing arm, and that
combined with his
deadly punting
makes him the best
triple threat back
Michigan hasfaced
Angelo Bertelli this year. His poor-
est passing performance occurred last
week against Army when he com-
pleted only five out of 20 attempts,
i but he was still good enough to toss a
*perfect strike to Bob Murphy in the.
i end zone fr the second touchdown
of the day with only 20 seconds re-
maining of the game.
Evans Will Not Play
Chief running threat of the Irish,
however, Owen "Dippy" Evans will
not participate in tomorrow's fray.
r Evans, leading Notre Dame scorer last
year, -has been plagued by a knee ail-
ment throughout the present cam-
paign and will witness the struggle
tomorrow from the bench. He has
seen action for only two minutes this
season, that coming in the Illini en-
At the halfbacks, sophomore Bob
Livingston, who has taken Evans'
place without hindering the Rambler
attack any, and Pete Ashbaugh will
likely draw the starting assignments.
Ashbaugh's starting status was still in
doubt today because of a charley
horse he received in the Army clash.,
In case he is unable to be used, Coach
Frank Leahy will undoubtedly call
upon Bill Early, pint-sized right half
from West Virginia.
Fuback Clatt Starts for Irish
Corwin Clatt, 198-pound sopho-
more, will be at fullback for the Irish
when the starting whistle blows here
tomorrow. He was only third team line
smasher when the season started but
injuries to Jim Mello and Gerry Cow-
hig gave him the opportunity to prove
himself, which he did so well that
only a two ton blast of dynamite will
displace him from the starting berth.
Other Irish running threats are
Dick Creevy, senior left half from
Chicago, who scored the first touch-
down against Army last week, and
Tom and Creighton Miller. The Miller
brothers are sons of Harry "Red" Mil-
ler who paced the Irish to their sole
victory over Michigan in 1909, the
score being 11 to 3.
Notre Dame will start a line which
outweighs Michigan's forward wall by
ten pounds to the man, and the Irish
bulwark is well stocked in reserves,
whereas Michigan's is not.
Dove at Left End7
All-American Bob Dove will be at,
left end for the Ramblers, and he's
one of the finest in the nation. He'd'
rather play football than eat, and his
195-pound bulk will bear watching
here tomorrow. Captain Bob Murphy,
at the other flank, is the lightest man
on the squad, weighing only 170
pounds, but his fighting leadership
has held the Irish band together.
Left tackle Lou Rymkus has made
his 220 pounds the strong forte of the
Rambler line this season by his great
defensive play. At the opposite tackle

will be Bob Neff, senior, who was
withheld by injuries last year but
who has been making up for lost time
this season.
Bob McBride, left guard, is the
only junior in the Irish first string
forward wall, while Harry Wright at
the other guard is one of the out-
standing linemen in the country.
Wright backs up the line on defense,
and he calls the plays on offense. He
was regular quarterback last year and
was shifted to guard to take up the

Ramblers Have Ziemba at Center
At center, Notre Dame will use 225-
pound Wally Ziemba, who returned to
action last week after a four game '
layoff because of injuries incurred in
the Georgia Tech clash. A pre-season
All-American, Ziemba will be basing,
his bid for the honor on his showing
against the Wolverines.
Irish coach Frank Leahy has made
it no secret that he fears the Wolve-
rine's style of attack more than any
other. The Michigan offense, in which
a majority of the plays develop from
a fullback spinner, is practically thef
