then dug in and made its most deter-
mined defensive stand of the game.
Four plays later, the Wolverines took
over on the seven yard line.]
After a few running plays, Michi-]
gan punted and Purdue was head-
ing for its first score. The Boiler-]
makers drove deep into Michigan]
territory and Dimancheff climaxed
this drive with a 28 yard dash around
left end for the initial touchdown.
Stan Dubicki's successful conversion
put Purdue on top, 7-6.
Nussbaumer Runs 60 Yards
Michigan came roaring back andj
after Dick Rifenburg had returned]
the kick off to the 39 yard line,1
Nussbaumer, in the decisive play of]
the game, sped-60 yards around left+
end to the one foot line. On the
next play, Nussbaumer bolted off
tackle for the touchdown. Ponsetto's+
kick was good and Purdue's 57 sec-]
onds of prosperity had ended.
Having failed to dent the Wolver-
ine forward wall, Purdue punted and
Michigan started a drive from its
own 37 yard line, which culminated in
another Michigan score 11 plays lat-
er. The high point of this drive
occurred, when with fourth down and
nine to go on the Purdue 15, Pon-
setto and Nussbaumer faked a field
goal attempt and Nussbaumer sprint-I
ed around right end for nine yards
and a first down. Two plays later,
Wiese plunged five yards over right
tackle for his second touchdown. Pon-
etto again converted and the score
read, 20-7.
Purdue Scores
In the third period, Jim McMillan,
Purdue guard, recovered a fumble on
the Michigan 19 and six plays later,
Ted Held crashed over left guard for
the touchdown. Dimancheff again
provided Purdue with its main scor-
ing punch in this short drive. In
fact, Dimancheff was a constant
threat to Michigan all afternoon as
he registered 102 yards in 21 tries.
Michigan then struck with light-
ning fury and didn't give up posses-
sion of the ball until they had tra-
versed 71 yards in 10 plays, with Der-
ricotte scoring the touchdown on a
five yard plunge through center.
With the Wolverines ahead, 27-14,
in the final period, Purdue started
another drive as Elliott and Diman-
cheff carried the ball deep into Mi-
t. *0. JA

chigan territory. Don Lund, who
was a bulwark on defense all after-
noon, broke up this threat as he
raced fifty yards with an intercepted
pass to the Purdue 30. A 15 yard
penalty set Michigan back to the
45 and a touchdown pass, Ponsetto to
Rifenburg, was called back as the
Michigan passer was less than five
yards behind the line of scrimmage.
Wiese Goes Over
However, the onslaught continued
undaunted as a pass, Derricotte to
Bruce Hilkene, mixed in with an 11
yard advance by Derricotte made it
first down on the Purdue 14. Four
plays later Wiese scored his third
touchdown on a five yard plunge over
left guard. Ponsetto's kick for the
extra point was blocked.
Michigan's final tally came 'as the
result of a fumble, which was recov-
ered on the Purdue 31 by Bruce Hil-
kene after Rifenburg's vicious tackle
had knocked the ball out of Schultz's

Policy of Union
Announced for
Coming Year
Social and Student
Activities Are Planks
A two part program including1
stimulation of student interest inl
campus affairs and beginning a par-3

ties are the major policy planks of
the Union for the coming University1
year, Torn Bliska, President, empha-I
Following are the highlights ofa
Bliska's statement of Union policy
issued this month.
"The first of our direct objectives
shall be an effort to foster student
interest in the activities and organi-
zations of their campus . . . We shall
direct this drive at . both incoming
students and upperclassmen. . .Plans
have been partially formulated to
present an all campus "Activities
Day." Its program shall consist of
displays and presentations of the
activities of every campus organiza-
Secondly, the Union is planning to
sponsor a partial return to peace-
time social activities. The first step
has already been taken in this direc-
tion with the re-opening of the
Union Rainbow Room for dancing
every week-end. Other activities, as
for example, Homecoming Day, are
being planned to tie in with this
general scheme.
The program may be stated more
briefly as this: The University of
Michigan Union is working to
spread and propagate a spirit
among the students of the Univer-
sity that can best be called CAM-
Candidates For 'M'
Mat Squad Needed
Prospective wrestlers with or with-
out experience were urged today by
'acting mat coach Wally Webber to
come out for afternoon practice at
the Yost Field House beginning Nov.
Only equipment not supplied by
the University are gym shoes which
the matmen are expected to obtain.
Coach Webber, confronted with
the difficult task of rebuilding the
Wolverine mat squad, which took the
Western Conference title in 1943,
may not have a single returning let-
terman reporting for the forthcom-
ing campaign, it was revealed.

Auditions for membership in Mich-
igan's "All- American Marching
Band" and in the concert band will
be held from 9 a.m. to noon and
from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. today through
Friday in Morris Hall, Prof. William
Revelli, director, has announced.
All students with previous high
school or college band experience are
urged to audition for the positions
open in every section, he said.
The marching band, noted for the
quality of its formations as well as
its field music, appears at all home
football games, at Friday night pep
sessions, and at military parades and
reviews and will unveil some tricks
at the Illinois game Saturday.
Titled "The All-American Band"
by Associated Press sports writers, it
has received an enthusiastic recep-
tion in Philadelphia, New York, Bos-
ton, New Haven, and other colleges
where the band has accompanied the

pus and in neighboring communities,
broadcasts regularly over station
WJR, Detroit, from the University's
own studios in Morris Hall. In addi-
tion the band has appeared on ma-
jor networks at home and on tour.
Prof. Revelli pointed out that the
fact that 55 or more than half of the
total membership, of 90 in the con-
cert band are enrolled in colleges in
the University other than music dem-
onstrates that music provides an
important and satisfying avocation.
All bands, including the "pops"
band which officiates at home bas-
ketball games, are open to the entire
student body. Men in the Army and
Navy as well as civilians are urged
to audition.
Awards for service in the Michigan
band are made each year at the
annual spring banquet. A silver watch
charm is awarded for one year's par-
ticipation, a gold ring for two, a band
"M" sweater for three years and an
"M" blanket for four years.
