mer a chance to use his running
ability besides giving him, more op-
portunity to spot his receivers.
And don't be surprised if Farmer
connects, especially in view of the
fact that nine Michigan foes have
completed 68 aerials of 139 attempted
for a gain of 1,017 yards. Added to
this is a team that has scored nine
of its 20 touchdowns on passes, and
a passer who has completed 36 out
of 96 thrown, nine of them for scores.
Depend on Line
To balance the Iowa aerial circus
Crisler has a hard-charging line that
has proven itself again and again.
Whether or not the Wolverines can
shake that lethargy that has hung
over them like a cloak all week is a
big question.
And Iowa's line is well-balanced
and definitely not a pushover. The
Hawkeye forward wall averages over
200 pounds per man, and is not just
a "beef trust" as Michigan line coach
Clarence Munn pointed out earlier
this week.
Four Michigan men-guard Julie
Franks, tackle Al Wistert, center
Merv Pregulman and quarterback
George Ceithaml-will make their
last bid for All-American honors.
Pregulman has already crashed Harry
Grayson's NEA mythical champion-
ship team.
Tackle Is Tough
Wistert has been.'a powerhouse all
fall. Franks has gained the praise of
all varsity foes. And Ceithaml is one
of the.best quarterbacks and block-
ers in the Midwest.
If that listlessness that has been so
apparent in practice this week shows
up again today it may kill the All-
American bid of the Michigan greats.
And the possibility of an Iowa victory
can't be discredited too quickly.
One theory advanced for the lack
of spark in the Wolverines is, the
tough schedule which Michigan has

undergone this fall, especially with a
dirth of good reserve material. How-
ever, the work of the seven line main-
. stays can't be praised too much.
Hawkeyes Arrive Today
The Hawkeyes arrived in Jackson
yesterday at 9:09 p.m., and rested at
Hotel Hayes. They will make the
one-hour trip to Ann Arbor this
morning, arriving at 9:47 a.m. Thir-
teen members of the squad, including
ends Parker and Burkett, guards
Gene Curran and Bob Penaluna, and
backs Farmer and Jim Youel, will be
playing their final game.

Michigan's Al Wistert and Indiana's
Billy Hillenbrand have been selected
by the Wailing Wall, Chicago football
fans luncheon club, as the lineman
and player of the year respectively.
Wistert and Hillenbrand will re-
ceive their awards at the Wailing
Wall's final meeting of the season at
the Hotel Sherman Monday. Judge
Robert J. "Duke" Dunn, former cap-
tain and guard of the Wolverines in
1921 will present Wistert with the

former Minnesota All-American now

War Upsets Show as
Cadets, Middies Clash
ANNAPOLIS, Nov. 27.- (A')- Army
and Navy play a football game in Tiny
Thompson Stadium here tomorrow-
just for the fun of playing a football
game.
Gone, through war-time necessity,
are the gaudy goings-on that have at-
tended this half-century old gridiron
rivalry. In place of all this "icing on
the cake," the Cadets and the Middies,
returning to Annapolis for the first
time since 1893, will perform before
a crowd of probably no more than
12,000 fans.
Although Army is a 2 to 5 betting
favorite, the upsetting events down
through the years since this series got
under Way back in 1890 leaves the
"hunch" in many quarters that any-
thing can happen.

Georgia T ech
Faces Georgia
Eleven Today.
ATHENS, Ga., Nov. 27--(/)-Sug-
gestions were a dime a dozen here
tonight, as old grads sought to give
Georgia's Wally Butts the benefit of
their silver hairs-but the suggestion
which' got most attention on the eve
of this Georgia vs. Georgia Tech foot-
ball game was one from Auburn, Ala.
A good reason was that Auburn
rammed it down Georgia's throat last
week-end with a fine 27-13 shellack-
ing. The suggestion: that All-America
Frankie Sinkwich might be more use-
ful at his old job as halfback, than
at fullback.
Butts, whocan see the light without
it being a hot-foot, took earnestly to
this line of reasoning, and if he cank
scrape up a first-string fullback, some
42,000 spectators will see Frankie
start at tailback tomorrow in Geor-
gia's final game.

Spartans, Beavers Play
EAST LANSING, Nov. 27.- (P)-
An injury-plagued Michigan State
team closes its season against Oregon
State here tomorrow with. the odds
steadily mounting in favor of the
invading Beavers, who like the Spar-
tans have experienced a so-so cam-
paign.
Tomorrow's contest previously was
rated a toss-up, but. injury to Dick
Kieppe, Michigan State's sterling all-
around performer, has left the Spar-
tans with feeble hope of gaining their
fifth victory.

Alumni Club to Reward
All Football Lettermen
Wartime means at least one break
for Wolverine sophomore and junior
lettermen. The Michigan Alumni Club
of Detroit which annually awards an
"M ring to all senior lettermen has
decided to number all football letter-
men as the recipients of the award
this fall.
The Club made the decision in def-
erence to junior and sophomore let-
termen who will probably enter the
armed services at the close of 'the
season.
