LOWdown on Sports

mkNOTHER Saturday has nearly rolled around, and time for your writer to
make his weekly grid prognostications. Tomorrow-s games make this
week's predictions even more difficult than in the past. Of the nation's top
ten teams, four are playing other teams in the charmed group-Notre Dame
pits.itself against Army in what may very well be the "game of the year,"
while unbeaten Penn opposes once-beaten Navy.
These two contests are undoubtedly the two top games of the day,
and might possibly decide the mythical national championship. Only
.:Navy has been beaten, a 33-6 shellacking at the hands of Notre Dame
last Saturday, while Army and Penn fought to a 13-13 deadlock the
wame day. Michigan and Purdue, who are tied for first place in the
Western Conference standings, both face teams that might stage an
upset, in addition to the fact that both have lost key men. The other
four top ten face relatively easy opponents, but anything can happen-
and it usually does.
,We don't advise that you bet your last nickel on our selections, even
though we are squandering our last quarter in The Daily experts poll which
is tabulated at the bottom of the page.
Michigan-Indiana--The Wolverines should take the Hoosiers by two, or
three touchdowns, but Fritz Crisler's lads may find it a bit difficult to break
up Bobby Hoernschemeyer's passing attack. Indiana will probably score a
touchdown, but it's Michigan all the way despite the loss of Bill Daley and
Merv Pregulman.
Notre Dame-Army-Notre Dame has played the "game of the year"
tWice before (once against Michigan and last week against Navy) but in our
opinion this really will be the game of the year, including any bowl games
that may be played. We're picking Army simply because they are the only
team the Irish have faced all year who have the reserves to match Frank
Leahy's large squad, and because our trusty crystal ball told us that the
Cadets will be the eleven to knock the number one team of the country off
their pinnacle.
Navy-Penn-The Navy should bounce right back after their beating last
week to hand Penn its first defeat of the season. The Red and Blue was at
its peak last Saturday, but the Middies' Hal Hamberg should outpass Al
Michaels to allow the Midshipmen to outscore the Quakers by several points.
Purdue-Minnesota--The Golden Gophers from the north have been
taking it on the chin lately and we see no reason why the Boilermakers,
minus Tony Butkovich, shouldn't give Minnesota another right to the jaw
tor their fifth Conference win.
,owa-Illinois-Illinois just doesn't. have the stuff to field a team that
can match the schools that have military trainees. Iowa should win by a
touchdown.
Northwestern-Wisconsin-The Wildcats have come up every week since
Michigan set them down 21-7 in addition to the fact that Otto Graham is no
slouch when it comes to heaving the pigskin. Wisconsin has lost men every
weekbecause of Navy transfer orders which hasn't improved a squad that
Ws weak from the beginning. We'll take the Purple squad by a lopsided
score.
Ohio State-Pitt-The only thing Pitt will win this year is the Pitts-
burgh city title. Paul Brown's boys, and we do mean boys, should win this
one going away.

Track hopefuls, including veterans
of last year., Marine and Navy train-
ees, and freshmen, are reporting all
this week to Yost Field.House to be-
gin the new sea'son's fall workouts,
with serious practice sessions sched-
uled to commence next Monday.
Head track coach Ken Doherty
stated definitely yesterday that there
will be a cinder squad this year and
that it will compete in regular inter-
scholastic meets. No schedule has
been drawn up as yet, of course, but
it will probably indlude such tradi-
tional Wolverine foes as Ohio State
and Illinois, and possibly even Notre
Dame. The date of the Conference
meet has not been announced.
Good Team Expected
Summing up the pre-practice out-
look, Coach Doherty stated that "we
are expecting a good team and a
good season this year, but at the same
time it is too early to get at all ex-
cited over our prospects."
He pointed out the fact that men
who scored 29% of the 53 points
collected by the Wolverines in win-
ning the Indoor Big Ten Champion-
ship last March have either gradu-
ated or gone to the armed forces.
Those lost are Dave Matthews, cap-
tain of last year's squad, Chuck Pin-
ney, Art Upton, Len Alkon, Ernie
Leonardi, Liv Stroia, Bud Byerly, Will
Glas, George Ostroot, and John In-
gersoll. Pinney, Leonardi and Upton
are still on campus, but stationed
with various army units, and will
thus be unable to compete.

season's double-championship outfit
are back, and will form the backbone
of the team to be developed in the
coming months.,
Bob Ufer, sensational Michigan ace
who holds the indoor 440 world rec-
ord as well as the Big Ten indoor
crown, will be on hand again, Doher-
ty said. Normally he would be una-
vailable because he has had three
years of college competition, but due
to revamped conference eligibility
rules he will have an additional sea-
son with the Wolverines.
Returning Men
Veteran 440 men, besides Ufer, will
be Bill Matney, an outdoor point
winner, and Don Sternisha. Sprint-
ers back are Bob Nussbaumer, a
freshman last year who turned to
baseball during outdoor season, Jim
Pierce, Bob Gardner, Sternisha, and
Jack Martin. Hurdlers returning are
Elmer Swanson and Bud Low in the
highs, and Swanson, Nussbaumer and
Martin in the lows.
Veteran half-milers include John
Roxborough, last year's champion,
Ross Hume, Bob Hume, captain of
the present team, and Dick Barnard.
The Hume brothers also ran the mile,
Ross taking first in the Conference
last March, and Bob competes in the
2-mile run. In the shot put George
Kraeger and Gardner are back, while
Gardner and Bill Dale return for the
high jump, and Bob Segula and Gene
Moody for the pole vault.

Bettered Grange's Record
Middle West football fans will long
remember the exploits of the swivel-
hipped Gary lad, who piled up a rec-
ord of 237 points in three years of
collegiate football to better the rec-
ord of Illinois' Red Grange. By the
time his senior year rolled around he
had scored 33 touchdowns, two more
than credited to the "Galloping
Ghost."
In his sophomore year, "Terrible
Tommy" carried the ball on 77 occa-
sions for 398 yards, threw 45 passes
and completed 21 for 310 yards and
scored three touchdowns. The next
season, he became a real triple-
threat, going 884 yards by rushing,
passing for 488 yards, scoring 14
touchdowns, 15 conversions and a
field goal for 102 points.
Gained 2,134 Yards
He added 117 points to that total
as a senior and wound up with a
grand total of 2,134 yards gained,
101 passes completed for 1,304 yards
and 33 touchdowns scored. -
Throughout his collegiate football
career, Harmon wore the number
"98" on his jersey, and his bomber,
the same one in which he was downed
last April, was "Old 98." He ex-
plained that Chicago's great back of
a few seasons earlier, Jay Berwanger,
had worn number 99 and he wanted
to be as much like him as possible.
He played with sleeves rolled up, a
gesture marking him a marked man
among his mates.
He had offers to play professional
ball but decided instead on a career
as radio sports broadcaster, though
an attractive offer led him to play
briefly for the New York Yankees
of the American Football League in
11941.
Humbled OSU
He closed his collegiate career be-
fore more than 73,000 rain-drenched
spectators in Columbus, scoring three
touchdowns to beat Grange's record
and humble Ohio State, 40-0. He
made all of the All-American selec-
I tions and won the 1940 Heisman Me-
morial Trophy, awarded to the great-
est individual football standout by
a record-breaking vote.

DETROIT, Nov. 4.-(P)-The Tor-
onto Maple Leafs twice came from
behind tonight to play the Detroit
Red Wings to a 5 to 5 tie in a Na-
tional Hockey League game before
9,738 spectators. Three goals in five
minutes of the second period squared
the count at 4 to 4, and then Babe
Pratt's goal offset one by Pat Egan
of Detroit in the third period.

Indiana Play
Role in Confe
By HARVEY FRANK th
Indiana, ranking only fourth itself th
in the Big Ten grid standings, will sc
play one of the biggest roles in de- ea
ciding the Conference champ when sh
it plays both league leaders, Michi-
gan and Purdue, within the next,
three weeks. m
Besides the Hoosiers, the Boiler- ne
makers have only to pass Minnesota di
this weekend to go undefeated for ic'
the season, while the Wolverines are W
favored to conquer Wisconsin and 63
Ohio State in their last two games.
Indiana is the Big Ten's leading th
defensive team to date, having al- Mi
lowed an average of only 130 yards ca
to its opponents per game, and is an
third in ground gaining. Thus the th
Hoosiers should provide the toughest pe
battle for the Wolverines, who are on
first in the ground gaining depart-
ment and third defensively, and the si
Boilermakers, who are second in both M
fields. st

Have your shirts laundered frequently. A too-
soiled shirt requires more scrubbing and conse-
quently wears out more quickly.
Go easy on the starch. Starching stiffens fabric,
so that it breaks instead of bending.
When you buy, buy Arrow. Arrow shirts are
longer-lasting, better-fitting, and carry the San.
forized label (fabric shrinkage less than 1%).
