Tickets for Army-Navy Game
Completely Sold Out in One Day
BALTIMORE, NOV. 21-.4-Swamped under what Chairman Frank
W. Wrightson termed "literally tons of mail," the Maryland War Finance
Committee declared today, just one full day after the mail order ticket
sale began, that the Army-Navy football classic Iibc. 2 was a sellout.
The announcement and request that the public "not mail any further.
applications as they will be returned" climaxed a mad rush for war bonds
-prerequisite to ticket purchase-and floods of mail containing bond
receipts, ticket applications and money orders.
More than 15,000 applications had been received and Leonard Engel,
jProvident Savings Bank Treasurer who is in charge of processing ticket
requests, 'aid enough others were either in the postofticepor in the mils
to over-subscribe an expected 17.000-22,000 ticket allotment for general
sale. By late afternoon the estimated total applications had jumped to
33,0000 with more coming.
Wrightson said he had "not the slightest idea" of how much in
bonds the game would be worth to the Sixth War Loan

Chippewas Engage
Michigan Saturday
Facing teams which they decisively
whipped during last year's campaign,
the Michigan cagers open their 1944-
45 season against the Romulus Air
Base quintet Friday evening and
begin their home stand against the
Central Michigan Chippewas the
following night.
A probable Wolverine starting line-
up of Ted Berce, Keith Harder, Don
Lindquist, Walt Kell and John Mul-
laney will meet the Flyers at Romu-
lus for the second time in history.
If they are to maintain a perfect!
record against the Romulus quintet,'
they must conquer a team composed
of such stalwarts as former Wolver-
ine forward Bob Grissen and Chuck
Smith, Central Michigan guard three
years ago.
The big Romulus squad will have
no returning veterans from the outfit
which last year bowed to the Wol-
verines by a 42-30 count. This defeat
came at the hands of an all-civilian
Michigan team. The contest was
closer than the score indicates, with
the Wolverine squad on the short
end of a 16-13 score at half time.
Saturday's home opener against
Central Michigan echoes last sea-


son's Field House curtain-raiser
when the Chippewas invaded Ann
Arbor with high hopes and left with
a 51-28 setback at the hands of
Coach Ben Oosterbaan's fast-break-
ing quintet.
This contest was the first tilt in
six years in which a Michigan team
had used a fast break. The' coming
season's play, however, will again be
characterized by the customary Wol-
verine slow break, with an occasional

digression when the opportunity pre Ohio State Will Liter Contesl as Favorites

AS WE COME to the end of another
grid campaign, the Army-Navy
game to be played Dec. 2, looms as
the outstanding football attraction
of the year, and the outcome of this
battle will be the deciding factor in
crowning the - national champions.
Both Army and Navy have power-
ful teams, as they are loaded with
college stars from all over the coun-
try. Army has rolled over all opposi-
tion with mammoth scores this year
and this ball club is being touted as
not only the best team in Cadet his-
tory, but also the best in the nation
to date.
The Cadets have an almost com-
plete plebe team which has sup-
plied most of the offensive attack
his year, but it has been the custom
of Lt.-Col. Earl Blaik, Army coach,
to start a game with his veterans,
and then let the plebes play most
of the game. To attest to the vast
amount of material available at
the beck and call of the Army
coaching staff is the case of George
Troxell and Bob Woods, -both good
backs last year, and although eligi-
ble this season, competition was
too keen and they dropped out.
At present, Army occupies the first
rung in the national ratings, but
what they have done to merit this
honor so unanimously is beyond me.
In the first place, they have played
teams which didn't belong on the
same 'field with them, as per usual.
Then when they run roughshod over
their opposition, they win wide ac-
claim. Duke faced the 'Cadets and
made them battle every inch of the
way before they finally capitulated to
Army,. 27-7. When Army routed a
not - too - good squad from Notre
Dame, 59-0, their reputation for the
year was definitely settled.
Should the Army beat Navy in
their scheduled encounter, there
will be no doubt whatsoever as to
their national caliber on the part
of the experts. Howbver, most
people overlook the fact that Navy
has already been beaten twice this
I'M NOT disputing the fact that
both of these football squads are;
good, but they could play tougher;
schedules as a further test to their
abilities. It is also almost a certainty
that Army and Navy will dominate

the eastern intercollegiate and prob-
ably the national grid picture for the
next three or four seasons.
Navy, this season, has many fine
players, such as Ralph Ellsworth
from Texas, Bobby Jenkins from
Alabama, Dick Ambrogi from Penn,
Fred Earley from Notre Dame, and
many others. To this star-studded
group will be added next se.ason's
crop of Bob Kelly, Notre Dame, Bob
Hoernschmeyer and George Sund-
heim from Indiana, along with Tony
Minisi of Penn, and several others.
While Army will lose such stal-
warts as Doug Kenna, Tom Lom-
bardi, Dale Hall, Bob St. Onge and
Joe Stanowicz through graduation.
However, the Cadets will retain
Doe Blanchard, Dean Sensan-
baugher, Max Minor and Al Tucker
in the backfield. In the line, De-
witte Coulter, Barney Poole and
Herschel Fuson will return. In
addition to these men, Army will
also have some of the top college
players in' the country coming to
the Point.

actions for both coaches and players
have a pretty strong aversion to that
portion of the anatomy these days.
Three members of the Wolverine
starting lineup are sporting ankle
injuries at the moment, and with the
Ohio State game, the most important
of the season coming up Saturday
the appearance of all three is doubt-
ful. The trio includes right tackle

at 210 pounds, is the heaviest man
in the line, has been a tower on de-
fense all season and has done heavy
duty as a blocker as well. As the
Wolverine reserves are thinnest at
the taclkle posts, his loss would be
keenly felt.1
No less valuable to the teamuare
Ponsetto and Derricotte. As quart-
erback, Ponsetto has done virtually
all of the signal calling as well as
leading interference and backingup
the line. In addition, he has booted
21 extra points in 26 attempts. Der-
ricotte has emerged as Michigan's
first string tailback, reaching his
peak performance in the Illinois
game. His hard running and en-
tirely capable passing have been val-
uable assets to the Wolverine attack.
Moreover, he is a good blocker and
New Starters Listed
If these men should be unable to
play, they will probably be replaced
by Art LeRoux or Don Fate at tackle,
Howard Yerges at quarterback, and
Bill Culligan at tailback. LeRoux
was a starter in the Wolverine open-
er against Iowa Pre-Flight but suf-
fered an injury and was replaced by
Milan Lazetich, who has been there
ever since.
Yerges, who won a letter at quart-
er at Ohio State last fall before be-
ing transferred to Michigan by the
V-12 program, replaced Ponsetto in
the Wisconsin game and turned in an
adequate performance. Culligan has
alternated with Derricotte most of
the season at tailback.

of which is the uncertainty of postal deliveries, we emphatically

Our little store is bulging with lovely gifts, and we will do our
best to accommodate late shoppers; but for your own peace of mind
we suggest you come in this week if possible.
A very modest deposit will start your order on its way- balance
