Wolverines Top Big Ten
Ire Offense, Defense
Elroy Hirsch Has Opportunity To Break
Western Conference Touchdown Record

'Ghost' Hirsch Goes A-Haunting

M

With only two weeks of play re-
maining, the Western Conference
football race has sifted down into a,
perfect alignment of offensive power.
Michigan, which shares the top rung
with Purdue is No. 1 on attack while
the Boilermakers are second. Then
comes Northwestern, which has lost
one game, in third position with In-
diana' fourth. And the defensive
standings almost are as perfect. The
Wolverines and Purdue run one-two
on defense with Indiana third a4d
Northwestern fourth.
Michigan has held four Conference
opponents to a total of 25 points, an
average of one touchdown per game.
while scoring 33. Purdue has been
averaging right on 30 points per
game while its rivals have been oblig-
ed to be content with nine.
There is an outside chance that
the Western Conference scoring rec-
ord of 13 touchdowns made by Tony
Butkovich of Purdue, before he went
away to Marine boot training, may be
broken by Elroy Hirsch of Michigan.
Hirsch now has seven touchdowns
and two games still to play. Those
games are against defensively weak
Wisconsin and Ohio State, so should
the "Ghost" be real hot against his
former school and the Buckeyes he
could blast out the needed eight
touchdowns to establish a new record.
Hirsch has taken second place
among the Big Ten scorers and is the
actual leader of players still in com-
petition while Otto Graham has
moved up to third place. Graham
has scored six touchdowns, getting
four ' against Wisconsin, and has
place-kicked five conversions, a new
accomplishment for the Waukegan
musician this fall. Graham has pass-
ed himself within one yard on av-
erage yards per game of Bob Hoern-
schemeyer, the Hoosier freshman sen-
satipn, who was pretty well stopped
by Michigan's powerful defense.
Graham has a net gain of 476 yards
on 22 out of 44 attempts for .500

while Hoernschemeyer has completed
35 of 82 for 481 yards.
The very small Eddie Bray of Illi-
nois has pulled up behind Bill Daley
of Michigan and Butkovich in rush-
ing and there's another one of the
season's oddities. The 150 pound
Illini halfback has a net gain of 351
yards on 53 rushes, an average of 6.4
yards per carry.

-Bears Roll to
New Pro High
CHICAGO, Nov. 10.--()-t was
bound to happen sooner or later-
and last week end it did. The Wash-
ngton Redskins took a" setback in
their passing game and the Green
Bay Packers suffered likewise in their
ground attack. But the Chicago
Bears had another field day and
for the first time this season emerged
supreme as pro football's top offen-
sive team.
Nudged out in one statistic or an-
other by the Packers or Redskins all
fall, the Bears today are No. 1 in
total offense-rushing and passing-
with 384.1 yards a game, first in
rushing with 167 yards a game, and
foremost in passing with 217. 1 yards
each contest.
Thus for the fourth time since
the National Football League's team
figures were first compiled in 1932,
the Bears are on the way to total
domination of the circuit in yardage
gained. They did it before in 1932.
1939 and 1941.
Badger Cage Coach'

"Crazylegs" will be all out Saturday, against his former teannates'

that the "Ghost" will again go a-haunting.
