WOLVERINE FANS LIKE THE OX, TOO:

Best Lineman Seen This Year

Alert OSU Capitalizes,
on Wolverine Fumbles

By MIKE DANN
COLUUMBUS, O., Nov. 21.-Both
Ted Husing of CBS and Bill Stern
of NBC thought Michigan's great
tackle Al Wistert the best lineman
they had seen all year. Husing told
fans, "Wistert is nothing short of
sensational, but as runner-up Julie
Franks gets my vote."
There was a -heavy "down-pour
all morning before the game and
intermittently during the contest.
Radio announcers could not tell
listeners anything about the wea-
ther so radio fans probably didn't
know why there were so many
fumbles and stumbling, on the part
of both teams. The weather was
much like that of the 1940 game
between Ohio State and Michigan.
Bob Hope and Frances Langford
of movie and radio fame were din the
stands. Said Hope after the game,
"I didn't want to root for one side or
the other until I was sure of the
winner. I can't afford to take'
chances with my reputation as a,
sports prognosticator."
The Ohio State band is probably
the most colorful unit Big Ten fans
have seen all year. At half-time
the Buckeye music makers played
the popular tune "Der Fuehrer's
Face" while marching in goose-step
fashion. At the end of this maneu-
ver the band lined up to make a
caricature of Hitler while the peo-
ple n the stands sang the song.
This was the first victory Ohio
State has won over Crisler-coached
teams. The all-time record for these
two perennial rivals is 25 wins for
Michigan, 11 victories for the Buck-
eyes and 3 ties.

yard gain as he somersaulted trying
to hold on to the ball, and on the
following play broke through the
center of the Buckeye line for a
thirteen-yard gain.
All-American Ed Frutig was in the
stands to cheer his Wolverine team-
mates. Frutig, who is now a pilot in
the U. S. Navy, is on his way to
Grosse Ile, Mich.
Most press box scribes thought
that Bob Chappuis, Michigan half-
back, was the best passer of the
day. Time and again the 170-pound
sophomore was rushed by the
Buckeye forward wall, but he con-
tinued to hit his mark with excel-
lent aerials.
The scalpers took a real beating
on today's game. Most of them held
on to their tickets until this morning
in order to command the highest
prices, but the heavy rain made the
pasteboards worth a dollar apiece be-
fore the game.
UCLA Tops Huskies
on Lute Score, 14-10
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21.-(YP)-The
UCLA Bruins snatched victory from
an embattled crew of Washington
Huskies in the last minute of play
today, recovering a wildly-bouncing
bad pass from center and emerging
with a 14 to 10 decision that kept
them in the race for the Pacific Coast
football title.
Walt Harrison's wild = snap-back
eluded Bob Erickson from the one-
yard mark, rolled to the 10 and the
ever-alert Bruin end, Milt Smith,
swarmed on it to kill Washington's
golden chance for victory.
UCLA looked like a championship
football team only in the first few
minutes of play and failed to make a
single first down in the second half.

Don Boor, who appeared late in
the fourth quarter as the second
Wolverine fullback to see action
made a rather sensational debut.
,He made a great catch for a 24

through the air. The two forward
walls battered one another from start
to finish, 'and for the most part the
gains by the hard running backs were
limited in yardage. Up front for
Michigan, it was again Al Wistert,
booming for All-American recogni-
tion, who led the fighting but unfor-
tunate Wolverines. Six of the Maize
and Blue linemen, Phil Sharpe, Wis-
tert, Pregulman, Julie Franks, Bill
Pritula and Elmer Madar played the
entire 60 minutes, as they have been
forced to do so often in the past. But
today their ironman stint was to no
avail. Capt. George Ceithaml, too,
was in the thick of the battle for the
whole time.
Bucks Too Speedy
The Buck dye backfield, paced by
fullback Gene Fekete and two fleet
halfbacks, Paul Sarringhaus and Les
Horvath, had too much speed for the
reserveless Wolverines. Time and
again they, outran the Michigan de-
fenders for the only large gains of the
contest.
Ohio State jumped off to a touch-
down early in the secord period for a
lead that was never relinquished. Af-
ter the ball had see-sawed back and
forth for the entire opening quarter,
the Bucks received the first scoring
break of the day, and turned it into a
wildly-cheered score, three plays later.-
With the ball on the Michigan 31,
Tom Kuzma, who was handicapped
by the slippery turf throughout,
dropped back to ;punt. But Chuck
Csuri, a great tackle for the Bucks to-
day, broke through the Michigan for-
ward wall to block the kick on the
21, from which point it bounced out
of bounds on the Wolverine 35 yard
line.
Start Aerial Thrust
The Buckeyes then gave the first
indication of the terrific aerial bar-
rage that was to come. With the Wol-
verines in a 7, 1, 2, 1 defense forma-
tign to halt the Ohio State running
attack, Sarringhaus dropped back
and heaved a pass to Horvath on the
Michigan 13. Fekete picked up three
over right tackle, and then Horvath
faded to his left and shot a beautiful
strike over the goal line into the wait-
ing arms of Sarringhaus. Fekete con-
verted and the Bucks were away
winging, 7-0.
Until the last few minutes of the
half, both teams were stalemated
around midfield, but then Michigan,
banking on the passing arm of sopho-
more Bob Chappuis, made a desper-
ate attempt to even the count. Start-
ing from their own 43, the Wolverines
capitalized on Chappuis' tosses to
drive deep into Buckeye territory, and
only the end of the half halted the
Wolverine surge. Six times the sopho-
more halfback passed, and five times
he hit his receivers. The last flip to
Wiese carried the ball all the way to
the Ohio State one yard line, but thu
gun sounded before another play
could be run.
OSU Scores Again
With five minutes left of the third
period, the surging Scarlet and Gray
crew increased its lead to 14 points.
After Michigan had halted one dan-
gerous threat and forced Ohio State
back 22 yards in three plays, the
Buckeyes against struck through the
air over the weak Wolverine pass de-
fense for the second score.
Taking possession on their own 36,
the Bucks hurled Fekete into the line
for four yards. Then on the next play
Sarringhaus, whose running and pass-
ing was above any reproach today,
pitched a long one to end Bob Shaw
who gathered it in on the Maize and
Blue 35 and sidestepping two would-
be tacklers skipped unmolested down
the east sideline to pay dirt. It was
good for 60 yards, and when Fekete
converted the Michigan doom seemed
sealed.
But the Wolverines, fighting mad
now, came roaring back on the kick-

off to brighten the hopes of their dis-
gruntled supporters. Starting from
their own 36, they marched all the
way to the Buckeye one yard line
where Wiese bulleted over right guard
for the only Wolverine tally of the
day. Two passes, one from Paul White,
outstanding Michigan ball carrier in
this title winning tilt, to Chappuis
that was good for 30 yards and an-t
other from Chappuis to Madar put
the ball on the Buckeye 20 wherej

Gingrass' Early Tally
Decides Close Contest
EAST LANSING, Nov. 21.-P)'A
rugged Michigan State College eleven
tumbled the Mountaineers of West
Virginia, 7-0, in a defensive football
battle witnessed by 6,400 fans at
Macklin Field today.
A Mountaineer fumble midway in
the first period paved the way for
a 60-yard Michigan State drive and
the game's only touchdown. After,
West Virginia valiantly held the
Spartans for three downs on the one,
fullback Morgan Gingrass of State
slashed into pay dirt.
Halfback Wally Pawlowski, bench-
ed three weeks by a knee injury,
made a brief appearance to boot the
extra point.
In snapping a three-game West
Virginia winping streak, Michigan
State annexed its fourth straight tri-
umph over the Mountainebrs, who
previously had been defeated only by
Boston College and Fordham.
It was the season's fourth victory.
for the Spartans, who have lost three
and tied one..
Spartans Hold Edge
Statistically, Michigan State had a
wide edge over the outweighed Moun-
taineers who kept alternating team
units in a vain attempt to wear down
the reserve-shy Staters. The. Spar-
tans rolled up 234 yards from scrim-
mage to West Virginia's 84 and held
a 14 to 8 first-down. bulge.
West Virginia's best chance came
in the first period when halfback
Allan Martin lobbed a pair of short
passes to Dick McElwee and Charley
Schrader to spark a 40-yard thrust
to State's 29. The Mountaineers
nudged to the Spartan 31 and 35 in
the second period but their attack
stalled almost then entire closing
half.
Michigan State's flashy one-two
punch-halfback Dick Kieppe and
fullback Gingrass-did a thorough
job of denting the Mountaineer de-
fenses. Gingrass tore. off 23 yards
to West Virginia's 30 to start -State's
scoring drive, and then banged 17
to the Mountaineer seven to all but
clinch the touchdown.

BOB CHAPPUIS
sophomore halfback whose
fine passing nearly sparked the
Wolverines to touchdowns several
times.
Wiese took it over to battle his way
to the touchdown on five successive
line smashes. Jim Brieske made the
extra point good, and Michigan root-
ers had high hopes that a last minute
scoring spree would overcome the
Buckeye margin.
The Wolverines tried to carry these
aims to a successful conclusion, but
the breaks wouldn't let them. A fum-
ble by Chappuis and a pass intercep-
tion by Shaw halted Michigan at-
tempts before they were hardly start-
ed.
Wolverines Fumble Again.
And it took another Michigan fum-
ble to insure the Ohio State victory.
After a pass from Chappuis to Ceit-
haml gave the Wolverines a first
down on theirs own 32. White fumbled
while hitting the Buckeye right tackle
and guard Bob Jabbusch recovered
for the Scarlet and Gray. Once again
the Buckeye bombers went into ac-
tion, and a heave from Sarringhaus
to Horvath resulted in the final score
of the pass-dominated encounter.
Fekete converted for the third time,
and Ohio State had the game and
the Conference title sewed up with
the thread of the aerial lanes.
Michigan, with Don Boor leading
the way, made a vain attempt to
close the gap, but a Kuzma pass was
intercepted by the ever-dangerous
Sarringhaus on the Buckeye ten to
balk the threat. When they regained
the pigskin, the Wolverines drove to
the Ohio State 32 but another fum-
ble, this time by Kuzma, was again
recovered by the Bucks and the game
ended two plays later with a jubilant
Ohio State band in possession on the
Michigan 35 yard line.

liance that, carried them to a Rose

Strong OSU Team Beats M', 21-7
Michigan's Big Ten hopes withered yesterday before
a barrage of Ohio State passes that added up to a final
count of 21-7, with the Wolverines on the short end.
Playing before a home crowd of 71,896, the largest
of the year, the Buckeyes, led by halfback Paul Sarring-
haus, let loose an aerial game that went over the Michi-
gan 'Seven Oak Posts,' but never through them.
Sarringhaus, after catching a touchdown pass from
Les Horvath for the first score then unleashed a 61
yard pass and run for the second goal and a 32 yard for-
ward for the final tally.
Michigan's lone score came after a 62 yard third
quarter march when fullback Bob Wiese plunged over
from the one yard line.
Outplaying Ohio State on the ground, the Wolverines
actually held an advantage of 17-9 in first downs and
an edge of 155 yards by rushing. -
