in Conference competition, and no
other team would be in a position to
match it.
But the Wolverine eleven, keyed to
the same high pitch that carried it
through the Notre Dame battle, has
its eyes likewise focused upon the
cherished bunting, and a victory for
Michigan tomorrow will put it in a
position to cinch at least a tie for the
championship next week against
Lines about Even
It will be a fierce struggle between
two great lines and two great back-
fields. The Buckeyes, two deep at
every line position, have a 'record
comparable to Michigan's reserveless
forward wall. Both of these rock-
ribbed lines have allowed an average
of only a scant margin over 100 yards
per game, and when the two power-
laden backfields hit them tomorrow,
anything can and is expected to hap-
Season records offer little basis of
comparison. It is contended that the
Wolverines have played the tougher
schedule, but Buckeye supporters
scoff at this notion.
A glance at the statistics show how
potent are the attacks that Crisler
and Buckeye mentor Paul Brown have
molded. Ohio State has averaged 313
yards per game by rushing, while the
Wolverines have amassed 204.
Fekete Leads Bucks
Most dangerous man among the
galaxy of fleet backs assembled by
Brown is sophomore fullback Gene
Fekete. He can run the ends and hit
the line with equal success, and at
present he tops all' Conference ground
gainers. Michigan hopes to match his
ripping plunges with its own sopho-
more backfield find, fullback Bob
Wiese, a polished line-bucker and the
leading ground gainer on the Wol-
verine squad.
Operating from both the. T-forma-

tion and a conventional single-wing-
back, the Buckeyes will relv on shak-
ing Fekete loose, but they'll spice up
their attack with runs -oy halfbacks
Paul Sarringhaus and Les Horvath.
These two men can also pass, and
both are rated in the triple-threat
class. Fourth man in the Buckeye
ball-toting quartet is Captain George
Lynn, a classy performer at quarter-
back who can block and tackle in a
manner befitting the leader of an
aggregation as powerful as this Ohio
State one.
The Buckeye backfield is probably
the most dangerous that Michigan
has faced this season, including the
Notre Dame set last week. They have
driven to touchdowns practically ev-
ery time they've had the ball this
year, and it will be up to the Michi-
gan line to stop them tomorrow.
Michigan Backs Tricky
By the same token, Ohio State
hasn't met any set of backs to com-
pare with the Wolverine quartet of
Captain George Ceithaml at quarter-
back, Tom Kuzma at left half, Paul
White at right half and Wiese at
fullback. Using its deceptive spinner
plays, with Wiese handling the ball
on almost every play but not always
carrying it, the Michigan offense
proved itself last weekgand with Don
Robinson and Bob Chappuis in re-
serve, it should be an even match
for the Buckeye speedsters. The Wol-
verines have the edge in sheer power,
while Ohio State holds the advan-
tage in speed, but in each case the
margin is slight enough to be of
almost no account.
State May Try Passes
Michigan's pass defense, weak all
season but strong against the pitch-
ing arm of Angelo Bertelli last week,
will be called upon for another se-
vere test in tomorrow's contest. The
Buckeyes, although sticking mainly
to their ground movements, have
completed 50 per cent of all their pass
attempts, and if they find the Wol-
verine forward wall too tough to
budge, they'll likely take to the air
with both Sarringhaus and Horvath
doing the pitching.
Apparently evenly - matched, the
two lines will field a group of Mid-
western standouts who would gladden
the heart of any coach. At left end
for the Buckeyes will be Don Stein-
berg, a converted guard, while at
right end they have All-American
bidding Bob Shaw, a sensational
pass-catcher and great blocker.
Have Strong Line
At the tackles Brown will likely
start either Jim McCafferty or Chuck
Csuri and Bill Willis. All three have
been standouts during the Buckeye
campaign. Lin Houston, one of the
best in the Conference, and Hal Dean,
another superb performer, will be at
guards, and Bill Vickroy, a steady

COLUMBUS, Nov. 20-Ohio State's
highly favored frosh team barely-
nosed out a lighter Michigan fresh-
man squad 16-14 before 5,000 rabid
fans in the Columbus Stadium this
Michigan twice came from behind
to threaten Buckeye scoring suprem-
acy and it was anyone's ball game
right up until the final gun.
The margin of victory proved to
be a field goal by the phenomenal
Ohio State place-kicker Lou Groza.
With the ball on the 25 yard line, and
fourth down, Groza calmly stepped
back and booted the ball squarely
between the uprights from 33 yards
Walterhouse Sparkles
But the star of the game, even in
defeat, was Dick Walterhouse, Wol-
verine left halfback, who ran, passed,
and kicked beautifully despite rela-
tively poor blocking from his team-
mates. After Walterhouse had gone
over for his and Michigan's second
touchdown, Ted Husing who viewed
the game said, "I think he's terrific.
He's very tricky, amazingly deceptive,
and handles himself wonderfully on
the field." It was a fitting tribute to
the general all-around sparkling play
of Walterhouse.
The game began with an Ohio
State drive that had everyone believ-
ing the contest would be a. walkaway.
Taking the ball on their own 7 yard
line, the Buckeyes really started roll-
ing. Halfback Russ Wolfe went 40'
yards on a spinner play. Then, after
another first down, Joe Whisler, Buck
fullback who paced their attack, cut
off tackle 30 yards to the one foot line
and then plunged over for the score.
Groza converted, giving the Buckeyes
a 7-0 lead.
Wolverines Score
Right after this, Walterhouse re-
turned Groza's kickoff from his end

zone 60 yards to the Ohio State 40.
He then faded back and. passed to
Art Renner on the 20, and after Bill
Maskill and Ralph Chubb had car-
ried the ball to the 7 he carried the
pigskin over. Walterhouse also kicked
the extra point to tie the score.
Ohio made another touchdown be-
fore the half was over on a 33 yard
run dowri the sidelines by Whisler,
and led 13-7 at the intermission,
Groza's kick for the extra point being
Groza Kicks Goal
The third period found the ball
shifting back and forth between the
two teams, the only scoring being
Groza's costly field goal on the last
play of the quarter.
Michigan, again led by Walter-
house, drove to pay dirt late in the
fourth period, with the Wolverine
star by climaxing the drive by skirt-
ing th end for 13 yards. ,He again
When the Wolverines recovered the
ball again, there was only a minute
of play remaining, and the game
ended in a valiant though futile bar-
rage of passes.
West Virginia, Michigan
State Game Is Toss-Up
EAST LANSING, Nov. 20.- (IP)-
Michigan State may h6ld a weight
advantage for the first time against
a major foe this season when it faces
West Virginia at Macklin Field to-
morrow, but the Spartans were ac-
corded no better than an even chance
to spill the scrappy Mountaineers.-
The game is expected to produce
an individual duel between Dick Mc-
Elwee, Mountaineer signal caller and
ace runner, and State's Dick Kieppe,
triple threat left halfback. The 163-
pound McElwee has averaged more
than five yards a carry in 76 rushing
attempts for a total of 396 yards while
Kieppe has led the Spartans in pass-
ing, running and kicking all year.

Minnesota Is
Choice to Beat
Badger Team
MADISON, Wis., Nov. 20. - (A) -
Wisconsin's football team, boasting
the best record of any Badger eleven
of recent years, nevertheless is cast
in its familiar underdog role for the
windup encounter with Minnesota
A share of the Big Ten champion-
ship, even the undisputed title, hinges
on the game, adding interest above
the natural rivalry. As a result a
capacity crowd of 46,000 will be on
If the Badgers win they can at
least tie for the title if Michigan
beats or ties Ohio State. If they win
or tie and if Michigan beats Ohio
and then loses to Iowa a week hence,
Wisconsin can win the undisputed

Indiana, Purdue Clash
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Nov. 20.-(A )-
A powerful Indiana University foot-
ball team and a sorrowful Purdue
eleven will clash here tomorrow in
a game that presents a perfect setup
for an upset-and upsets are common
to the long gridiron rivalry between
the two Hoosier schools. Tomorrow's
game is the forty-fifth in the series.
Indiana, winner of five of eight
games this year, is a heavy favorite
over the Boilermakers who have won
only one game in eight starts.
Graham Versus Bertelli'
SOUTH BEND, Ind., Nov. 20.-()
-One of the best passing shows of
the year is. in prospect tomorrow
when Notre Dame and its throwing
ace, Angelo Bertelli, meet up with the
Northwestern Wildcats and their
sharpshooter, Otto Graham. before
an anticipated 35,000 fans.
Both teams have poor records this
fall. The Irish have bowed to Georgia
Tech and Michigan and tied Wiscon-
sin while the Wildcats have only
beaten Texas.
