Michigan's Chances for
Big Ten Crown Hinge
on a Victory Saturday

The Cracker Barrel

-- _ .



Brother will be pitted against bro-
ther Saturday afternoon at Columbus,{
O., when Michigan tangles with Ohiol
State in what may turn out to be the
most crucial battle in the Conferencet
this fall.
The eyes of nation's grid fans willY
be turned to the Midwest to see if the
conquerors of Notre Dame can add the
title-bound Buckeyes to their list of
victims, for victory may mean the
Big Ten crown for the Wolverines.
Of secondary interest will be the
battle of Michigan's high-stepping
halfback, Paul White, and brother
John White, rangy
Buckeye end. And1
fans are already1
wondering if this
brotherly duel will
affect the perfor-
mance of either
Paul, the young-
er of the two, tops
the six foot mark
and weighs about
185 pounds. John
is heavier by 10
White pounds and mea-
sures 6 ft. 3 in. Paul was lured to
Michigan, leaving brother John to his
choice, which turned out to be Ohio
State. John stayed out to work and
didn't enroll until last fall.
At River Rouge High School, John
held down the pivot post for three
years. Paul started out as an end, but
wound up in a backfield slot after
proving to coaches he possessed the
speed, dexterity and all-around abili-
ty of a ball carrier.
Paul carried on as a halfback at
Michigan, but John's height and
speed proved more valuable on the
flank. An able pass receiver, John
has yet to start a game, but Coach
Paul Brown may give him that chance
this week.
"I'll Wish Him Luck"
And what does a brother think
about in a case like this? "I hope John
goes well against us-not too well-
because we've got to win that game."
In other words, brother John will be
just a guy named White for 60 min-
utes Saturday.
Yesterday afternoon, the Red Shirts
became the Buckeyes and reeled off a
string of plays that the Wolverines
may see Saturday.
Coach Fritz Crisler had his ends
and backs running down under passes
until they were blue in the face, and
again stressed pass defense. Offen-
sive and defensive work against the
dummies was stressed too. Crisler is
well aware that Ohio State is the
highest scoring team to face his boys
this season.
Michigan's No. One Fan
The following letter was received
by the University of Michigan
football team from a sixth grade
student in Pittsburgh, Pa. He is
perhaps one of , the Woverines'
staunchest fans. The letter is re-
printed below:
Dear Team Members,
"First, congratulations on your
fine victory over Notre Dame last
week. It was a swell job. I am
writing you in behalf of a group of
us sixth graders. We have been
cheering for Michigan this year.
But we want to write you to tell
you to fight hard this coming Sat-
urday against Ohio State.
We have rooted for you hard
but the other kids and grown-ups
tell us that Ohio State has too
much fight for our team. But we
don't believe it.
Please win for us Saturday. We
will be listening in. Please don't
lose because then we would be
laughed at because we tell people
that Michigan has about the best
team in the country and they will
say, yes, next to Ohio State. Don't
forget to fight hard."

Calling All-Americans ...
THE TALK of this year's All-Ameri-
cans is beginning to fill the fra-
ternities, dormitories and rooming
houses around the campus. In about
three weeks the various news services
will pick what are supposed to be the
nation's greatest players on their
mythical teams.
We think there are two factors in
making of an All-American: the
ability of an individual and the
proper publicity given to the indi-
In other words we think one half of
an All-American is made in the press
box. If that is true, Michigan will
probably have more than its share of
All-Americans when the season is
over. So far this year the Wolverines
have already played in what scribes
call four major games: Great Lakes,
Iowa Seahawks, Minnesota and Notre,
In all of these games sports writ-
ers from around the nation have
filled the various press boxes to
overflowing. The Wolverines have
already had a chance to display
their All - American talent four
times while most other schools have
had to content themselves with one
or two of such opportunities.
As if this wasn't enough for Michi-
gan as far as big games are concerned,
the Wolverines will play a fifth "game
of the day" contest against the Buck-
eyes of Ohio State Saturday.
The Publicity department of Ohio
State has just announced that no
more tickets for the press box can be
procured because in the stadium all
the tickets have been taken.
Even radio stations cannot get
facilities this week unless previously
arranged for. Eleven separate sta-
tions are carrying the contest as
well as both Ted Husing of CBS and
Bill Stern of NBC. This will mark
the third time on Michigan games
for each of these famous announ-
Together, Stern and Husing broad-
cast 22 games a year. They pick from
200 teams playing every Saturday,
yet the Wolverines will play before
them in six of the 22 times they cover
football games. No school in the coun-
try is getting near this amount of
We don't say for one minute that
certain members of the Wolverine
backfield are not entitled to a position
on the various All-American teams,
but we say, if they don't get this
honor it's not because of obscurity.

IF THERE is one player on the Wol-
verine squad that has been slight-
ed as far as proper recognition is con-
cerned it's Elmer Madar. Laboring
against terrific odds, Madar has be-
come a great football player.
For two years the curly haired
senior was on the sidelines with in-
juries. At the beginning of this sea-
son Madar re-
.ported to Coach
Fritz Crisler as a
quarterback but
was shifted to an
end position.
He had to start
learning things all
over again; he had
C to break a lot of
old habits. And
what's more he
Shad to learn to live
up to the stan-
Madar dards of one of the
best lines in the country.
With the season three quarters over,
we feel Madar has done all that can
be expected of a veteran Big Ten end,
let alone the work of a first year man.
According to Coach Bennie Oos-
terbaan,, "Elmer is the best damn
end in the country weighing less
than 180 pounds."
We don't know exactly what has
made Madar the player that he is,
but as one fan puts it, "If guts makes
a great end, Elmer leads them all."

The Daily office yesterday with
an interesting bit about Bill Smith,
who was a tackle for Michigan in 38,
39, 40.
Yost had received a letter from
Bill's father and some clippings
telling of some real heroism on the
part of the ex-Wolverine star.
Piloting a lone Flying Fortress, Bill
battled six Japanese Zero fighters for
30 minutes over Rabaul early last
month and claimed the possible de-
struction of two.
Smith senior, a colonel in the U.S.
Air Force and a star gridder for the
Wolverines in 1909 himself, told
Yost in the letter, "I saw the poy
take off that day and I got the
same feeling when he used to run
out on the football field, a whole
team gets into those bombers and
you want to yell, 'go get 'em.'"

Michigan Frosh Enter
OSU Tilt as Underdogs


If Wally Weber's boys have the
spirit in Columbus tomorrow that
they have displayed all week in prac-
tice, the highly favored Buckeyes
may have a real fight on their hands.
Definitely the underdogs, the Wol-
verines have shown a great deal of
improvement during the past few
days, and are raring to go against
Ohio State. They've been running
harder, blocking harder, and employ-
ing more vicious tackles than they
have displayed thus far this season.
Buckeyes Have Stars
But the team has no reason in the
world why it should be overconfident
for the game tomorrow. The Buck-
eyes have a squad that is running
over with stars. When Paul Brown,
the Ohio State varsity coach, admits
that the freshman team is wonderful,
then it must be plenty good.
The game is scheduled for 3 p.m.
tomorrow, and will probably be play-
ed in the Stadium unless weather
conditions are such that play will
ruin the field for the varsity fray on
The team will leave in a caravan of
automobiles about 7 o'clock tomor-

row morning, and will arrive in Col-
umbus in time for a short workout
before the game. Today's workout,
will consist only of polishing up on
plays, and getting a good look at the
Ohio State shift so the team will
know just what to expect.
Weber Names Squad
Coach Weber announced last night
that the following boys would make
the trip: Ends-Art Renner, Lehman
Beardsley, Varskin Baydarian, and
Fred Klinka; Tackles-Bill Pratt,
Jack Emerick, Elmer Phillips, and
Jim Dallavo; Guards-George Krea-
ger, Henry Mantho, Kurt Kampe, and
Jerry Hofferle; Centers-Frank Kern,
and either Harold Fulk or John Cran-
dall; Quarterbacks-Ervin Derda and
Hugh Mack; Halfbacks-Dick Wal-
terhouse, Bob Nussbaumer, Bill Cull-
igan, and Bill Maskill; Fullbacks-
Ralph Chubb and George Guerre.

practical for your
A small bathroom heater does a good job for short periods
of time-an hour or two. It's fine if used in a small
space. Why isn't the idea practical for heating a whole
house? Or why can't electric heat be used throughout
the house as a means of raising the temperature from 65
to 70 degrees?
There are two reasons. First, to achieve the cleanliness
and convenience of electric heat, you sacrifice 80 per cent
of the coal used to make electricity. Only ONE TON
OUT OF FIVE is actually delivered to your home in
the form of useful heat. This represents a loss-especi-
ally when you can burn coal in your own furnace at 50
to 60 per cent efficiency. Even using electric heat to raise
your house temperature 5 degrees is not recommended
Second, electricity must be made the instant it is being
used and on cold days each home would require about 80
times as much as it uses normally. The extra power plant
equipment to produce enough electricity to heat houses
on a cold day would be partly idle on a warmer day;
and it would be completely idle all summer. But the
expense would continue the year round, and to cover
this all-year expense, the cost of electricity would be high.
All the above pertains to house heating. Elec-
tricity is, of course, highly economical for steadier
