does notfluti s qualification! He

could not rum despite the fact that f
he had the best line in the nation
working in front of him. I will ad-
mit that Notre Dame's plays did not
call for him to run, but if he had
possessed the ability, the plays would
have been available. Numerous oth-
ers could also pass if given his pro-
tection and receivers.
"in 1942, Bertelli was absolute-
ly helpless when being ' hindered'
by .l tlie Franks and Al Wistert.
In addition, the Irish. sling -shot'
himself could not 'make' the T-
formation, for other qualifications
are also essential. All successful
T-formation exponents have had
these qualifications, namely a
crushing fullback, a fast wing-
back, a line capable of individual
blocking, and an outstanding pass-
"Classing a man of Bertelli's abili-
ties with a man like Bill Daley is
nonsense. Daley would be an asset
in any system. He can be effective
even behind an inferior line, a thing
Bertelli could not be. Daley proved
this in the Notre Dame game.
"The AP could make mistakes
and has made them. Sanmmy
Baugh, a passer kicker, and fair
runner was overlooked in his senior
year. But,-=-Bertelfi is no 1'augh!
If you insist oil ceeping .f'oi the
gridders who, have been wronged.
why not speak for Merv Pregul-
man, a true All-American guard,
center, or tackle and. one of the
nation's best place-kickers, or for
Pete Pihos, the best end to play
against our Wolverines this year,
instead of John Yonaker, gretat
offensively, poor defensively?
"Why not quit quoting poetry and
write for The Michigan Daily, not
the Notre Dame Chronicle'? Your
readers would appreciate it."

Tin today's scrimmage thle teami was
divided into two squads, the whites
and reds. The whites, composed of
first string men entirely, had Wayne
Thompson and Bob Wiese at forward,
Bill Seymour, center, and. Don Lund
and Dick Shrider at guards. TIhe reds
started out with Bruce Hilkene and
Rex Wells, forwards, 'TomePaton, cen-
ter and Elroy Kirsch and John Leddy,

Ther~efore, the llayon both iesas
hiard, but the whiter using soim nice
plays repeatedly broke through, the
red defense. Dick Shrider was high
point man with six points, and this
evening lhe looked nlor e impressive,
than he has for a long timle. WayneI
T1homipson, Bob Wiese and Bill Sey-i
mour each registered two baskets to[
their credit.
Strack Stars
Both teams had the. same starting
lineups for the second half except
that Dave Strack moved over to, one
of the forwards. Strack continued his
high scoring ways by :rolling up 14
points. It certainly was a stroke of
genius on the part of the Michigan
board of strategy in moving Dave to
a forward. position. His scoring talent
can now be utilized to its utmost ef-
fectiveniess,. In, the two games thus
