Meet Jim Brieske- Specialist
Wlho Wants To Play Regularly
By PAUL CHANDLER
Associated Press Staff Writer
Introducing than :ad with the
crew haircut who ambles on the
field after each Michigan touch-
down and usually returns a few
moments later with a big grin on
his friendly map.
Jim Brieske is the name, and he
holds a little Wolverine scoring
record of which he is modestly
proud. He's made five points in les3
than two minutes of game action,
and not one opposing tackler had
laid a hand on him.
Brieske is Michigan's place-kick-
ing specialist. He starts hunting for
his helmet when the Wolverines
drive within the opponents 10 or 15
yard line and he goes in to try for
the extra point after the touch-
His record to date: one field goal
against Great Lakes, two success-
ful conversions against Michigan
State, one-extra point .missed. To-
tal five points.
Only Successful Try
That field goal, incidentally, was
the only one he's ever kicked, and
second one he's attempted in a
game. Once back in Harbor Beach
high school he dropped back from
his center position to try one from
the 21 yard line, but it soared wide.
Brieske gave Coach Fritz Crisler a
chuckle before he made the field
goal. Jim couldn't find a helmet
and he was reluctant to borrow one
from his teammates. He hadn't ex-
pected to enter the game at all.
Just before the criticAl moment,
Crisler noticed Brieske was bare-
headed and warned him, "You
can't even get on the field without
a helmet, Jim."
Jim rose to his full six feet, two
inches and drawled to the bench,
"Any you guys got a helmet I can
use?" It drew a laugh-and a head-
New At Specialty
Brieske is new at his specialty
and is working his right toe at
length in practice this week. He did
the place-kicking in high school for
four years, but with only fair re-
Crisler is quite aware of the im-
portance that one point may hold
when playing Bernie Bierman's Sea
Hawks. Last week the Cadets de-
feated Minnesota, 7-6, thanks to a
muffed placement. In 1940 Bier-
man's Minnesota eleven defeated
the Wolverines by the same margin
in the rain at Minneapolis.
Brieske is 19 years old and weighs
195 pounds. He's Michigan's third
string center, behind Merv Pregul-
man and Bill Pritula. He was born
and educated in Harbor Beach, but
never met Supreme Court Justice
Frank Murphy, the city's most dis-
tinguished native son.
In his last high school year Brie-
ske was football captain. His prep
coach was T. G. Pipple.
Jim shares the normal pangs of
a football player. "This kicking is
all right," he says, "but I'd like to
take a crack at the real stuff."

SOUTH BEND, Ind., Oct. 6-Frank
Leahy, who won the 1941 acclaim as
coach of the year by piloting Notre
Dame to an undefeated season, has a
tie game and a defeat hanging over
his head this fall after changing to
the T formation.
The faithful followers with senti-
mental attachment to the Notre
Dame system of Knute Rockne heri-
tage, have started to say: "I told you
Perhaps it wasn't the T, but the
personnel, that failed against Georgia
Tech last week for Notre Dame's first
defeat in 11 games.
Evans' Injury Hurts
If Owen (Dippy) Evans, the team's
best ground-gainer and scorer last
fall, overcomes a knee injury that has
kept him inactive since Sept. 5, Notre
Dame may start clicking against
There's nothing Fo wrong with the
T that victories won't cure.
One reason for Leahy's bold deci-
sion to junk the hippity-hop of the
old system and turn to the T was
Evans' talent. More widely publi-
cized, though, was the influence ex-
erted by Angelo Bertelli, the 1941
sophomore pass-master. His limita-
tions as a runner and blocker did not
meet requirements of the Notre Dame
system. But he fitted admirably into
the ball feeder quarterback role of
Evans Slated Left Half
Running from the left halfback
slot, Evans' part in the Leahy pat-
tern was to explode on quick opening
plays behind the blocking of guard
Bob Dove, tackle Lou Rymkus and
either John Zilly or John Yonakor,
ends. Working with Evans was to be
Creighton Miller at right half, and
sophomore Jerry Cowhig at fullback.
In succession, Leahy lost Evans by
injury and Zilly by ineligibility. Yon-
akor, a freshman flash, failed to show
as a sophomore, forcing the return
of Dove to left end. Miller was handi-
capped with a sprained ankle and
played ,only part time. Cowhig also
was injured and played only a few
minutes. The entire set - up was
thrown out of balance.
Ideal Conditions Needed
Observers say the ideal conditions
conceived by Leahy never can be at-
tained until Yonakor approximates
his promise, Evans recuperates and
resumes his speed of last year, and
Cowhig and Miller fully recover from
