much he had learned in the last year,
but it also eliminates any chance he
had of surpassing Tony Butkovich's
Big Ten scoring record. At present
Hirsch has scored 42 points while
Autkovich, who finished his season
with Purdue when he was transfered,
has tallied 78.
Another causualty on the Crisler
coached team is regular starting
guard, George Kraeger. The ailing
guard will be replaced in the 'starting
line-up by Rex Wells, the former
Idaho State star who place kicked
three times for the Wolverines in the
Indiana game.
Five Ex-Badgers Start
The five Marine transfers from
Wisconsin who will definitely start
for the Varsity are Jack Wink at
quarter, Wally Dreyer at right half,
Bob Hanzlik at left tackle, Johnny
Gallagher at left guard, and Fred
Negus at center. Hank Olshanski is
probable starter at right end, al-
though Art Renner might possibly
get the call. Bob Rennebohm, who,
like Qlshanski, played on last year's
Wisconsin team, might also start and
will certainly see a lot of action.
Rudy Smeja, starting left end and
two year letterman, will be acting
captain for today's contest at the re-
quest of Captain Paul White who was
transferred after the Minnesota
game. Other Wolverine starters are
Bob Derleth at the other tackle spot,
Bob Wiese at fullback and Bob Nuss-
baumer in' the injured Hirsch's left
half slot.
Badger's Revamp Lineup
Wisconsin will probably start with
an almost entirely new backfield
from that of last Saturday. In an
attempt to rejuvenate his squad,
Coach Stuhldreher has shifted little*
Larry Heinz, who turned in two ex-'
cellent perfoiance;uagainst Purdue
and Northwestern, from right to left
half and Don Kindt, after being out
several weeks with . leg injury, will
get the nod at right half. Hugo Vogt,
a transfer of 'several weeks frorn De-_
1 Pauw, will do the signal calling, with.
either Ray Dooney- or John Kuenzler
at full.
The Badger line will probably be
the same that faced Northwestern
last week, with center Joe Keenan
being nominated as acting captain.

Irish Favored
Over Inspired
Wildcat Team
EVANSTON, ILL., Nov. 12.-()-
Chapter eight in the story of the
greatest Notre Dame football team
since Knute Rockne's undefeated and
untied eleven of 1930 will be written
before a sellout crowd of 48,000 to-
morrow when the undefeated and un-
tlied Irish play Northwestern-a
team geared to the highest possible
degree for an upset.
Notre Dame's seven victims this
season will say it can't be done, and
even the odds-makers like the Irish
by 20 or 21 points-but that in itself
is a tribute to these Northwestern
Wildcats, who have lost only one
game all season and have one of
football's finest passers and all-
around players in halfback Otto
Graham.
Notre Dame can go without An-
gelo Bertilli, the new Marine. Coach
Frank Leahy knows that now, after
the splendid way in which 18-year-
old Johnny Lujack conducted him-
self against Army last week.
Northwestern must rely almost en-
tirely on Graham's passing arm,
which hardly assures the Wildcats of
a close score, let alone a victory.
But if the durable Otto goes like
he did against a weak Wisconsin
team last week, when he scored foutr
touchdowns, passed for a fifth and
kicked three extra points, the Wild-
cats can make a game of it.

Looking better than in any previ-
ous session, the Michigan basketball
squad turned in another long hard
workout yesterday afternoon on the
Yost Fieldhouse court. The team
showed plenty of fire and spirit while
working through several passing and
defensive drills and topped off the
evening with a lively scrimmage in
which all squad members partici-
pated.
Assistant Coach Bill Barclay, who
is handling the cagers while Head
Coach Benny Oosterbaan looks after
his football duties, was well pleased
with his charges at the end of the

day. "They have certainly shown
great. improvement for having prac-
ticed only two weeks," he commented.
The squad was again divided into
three teams ,one an all-freshman ag-
gregation and the other two compos-
ed of the men with previous experi-
ence. Captain-elect Wayne Thomp-
son, six foot two inch forward from
Kalamzoo College, stood out in scrim-
mage along with Bob Se'mour and
Bob Stevens. Tom King, a Marine
trainee from Michigan State College,
also drew favorable comment from
those on thevsidelines. Unlike yes-
terday's scrimmage, all three teams
employed the Hoosier style of offense,
and Coach Barcley indicated that the
Wolverines would utilize the fast
break during the season.
Barcley also emphasized that all
positions on the squad were still wide
open and that none of the teams
participating in the scrimmage could
be regarded as the starting lineup.
There are still three weeks remaining
before the season's opener against
Western Michigan, scheduled for De-
cember 4, which will give the coaches
ample opportunity to select the final
squad.
Aside from the curtain raiser,
which will be a home game, the
schedule for the season is still indef-
inite. Two or three other games have
been tentatively booked and others
are being arranged. The Western

At the close of yesterday's gruelling

Old Michigan
Grid Star .dies
Word was received here yesterday
that L. H. (Joe) Maddock, former
University of Michigan star tackle of
the famous point-a-minute teams,
and University of Utah grid coach,
died Wednesday of a lung ailment.
Maddock was a native of East Jor-
dan, Mich. and played football at
Albion for one year before coming
to Michigan in 1902 and '03. Besides
football, he also earned a track letter
in '03.
Fielding H. Yost, his coach here,
called him one of the best offensive
tackles he has ever seen, and recalled
that Maddock was often used as a
fifth back when Michigan had the
ball.

Challenge to Froshwo ien,...
THIS COLUMN is headed "Challenge to Froshwbmen" almost solely for
the purpose of catching the eye of any unsuspecting females Who may
have the courage to glance at the sports page. It doesnot inplyanything
else. The facts are presented on purely an unbiasedbasis1and ;ceds of '47:
are encouraged to express themselves, preferably in writing.
What is this all about? There is a move on foot under the 1lipetus
of the Michigan M: Club to, revive one of Mjchiah's oldest traditions
the wearing of the Maize anrdBlue pot by the class of "47. ;owe er,
because of the lack of Michigan males on campus,, the M Finbhs
turned to the coed to help maintain this tradition.
Ross Hume, Varsity trackman and Big Ten Indoor ConferenceI mile
champion, who has been sounding out coeds on the plan, expresses the
club's view very simply.
"EACH DAILY PAPER cites some new task taken over by the wopmen
due to the departure of the drafted males. Even on our own, cam-,
pus this is becoming increasingly apparent. Raking leaves, wor.ing in
the Union and hospitals-these are only a few of the jobs that coeds
have taken over. Now, it is the coed's opportunity to take over' another
job vacated by Michigan men.
"In years gone by the Michigan campus has been dotted each fall with
the Maize and Blue 'pots' of freshmen. They have gone to war. One' of the
oldest Michigan traditions is in danger of decay. This fall the frosh coeds
have the opportunity of taking over this ancient tradition ...-
OUR VIEWS on the wearing of "pots" by coeds may or may not differ
with the M Club's. Taking It Easy is only acting as an intermediary
between the club and freshwomen.
Well, coeds of the class of '47, what are your views? What do you think
of the tradition? What do you think of Michigan coeds taking over the
wearing of the "pots?" Do coeds object to wearing the "pot?" Does the
tradition mean enough to them to carry it on?
What are your answers to these questions? Help us solve a problem
by answering these questions frankly. If you have ideas on the subject,
put them down on paper and either mail or bring your letters to The
Daily sports editor.
Last fall the Wolverines, an organization formed by officers of the
Michigan Union, carried on a campaign to have freshmen wear "pots"
in an effort "to revive a dying tradition and inject new life into Michi-
gan spirit." (The quotes are not ours.)
