Navy Machine Crushes
To Smash Irish Undefec

Fury engendered by eight years of
frustration would not be denied today
as the Navy football team, a big,
tough and power-laden machine,
crushed the hitherto undefeated No-
tre Dame eleven, 32 to 13, in a game
which kept an estimated capacity
crowd of 67,000 in Municipal Stadium
in various stages of emotion for the
full 60 minutes.
The Middies, who sputtered and

wheezed in early season games, were
supposed to have exploded in smoth-
ering Penn a 'week ago, but that was
only the pop of a cork compared with
the blast they loosed against the
ever-trying but thoroughly outplay-
ed Irish.
Not that the Navy followers were
without their anxious moments. For
the first few minutes it seemed the
proverbial luck of the Irish hovered

only a mirage, however, and once the
Navy power had begun to exert itself,
'there seemed little doubt of the out-
come save in the final half when
Notre Dame at time threatened to
pass its way into one of its tradi-
tional belated victories.
The Middies scored twice in the
first period and again in the third
before the thwarted Irish could push
across a counter: Navy came right
rack with another touchdown in the
fourth, saw the Irish match that,
then powered across one more to put
the game safely away. 0
It was power, power and more
power that humbled the Irish. On
offense it mattered not which backs
of the horde on the Middie bench
were in the game. They slashed and
bulled and tore through the valiant
Irish defense as a knife through tis-
sue paper.
On defense, the big line rolled in
like a gale-whipped sea to crush and
shatter the Notre Dame runners, and
in sheer desperation the Irish took to
the air, often passing from deep in
their own territory to thwart that
ever-rushing line.
The big scare for Navy fans came
shortly after the opening kick-off
when Bill Barron fumbled an Irish
punt on the Navy 18, and the Irish

With the opening game less than
a month away Michigan's basketball
coaches are faced with the unenvi-
able task of molding an almost
entirely new teamdfrom a variety of
largely inexperienced and untried
Only one veteran from last year's
quintet, guard Don Lund, who holds
two cage letters, will be on hand for
the opener, and even his services are
doubtful. Lund is a member of the
football squad which will not wind
up its activities until Nov. 25, just a
week before the curtain raiser.
King Lost in Transfer
Wolverine cage hopes were given
a sharp blow by the transfer of Ma-
rine Tommy King who last winter
was the big gun in the Michigan
attack. King finished sixth in Big
Ten scoring and paced the offense
from his forward position. His value
to the Wolverine cause was aptly
demonstrated when he was recently
chosen for the Collegiate All-Star
squad to play against the national
pro champions at Chicago later this
Departing with King was Bob
Stevens, a reserve forward who saw
limited action last year. Stevens was
known for his aggressive tactics and
with a little polishing might have
developed into a first-rate performer.
Faced with this scarcity of experi-
enced personnel, Assistant Coach Bill
Barclay inaugurated summer bas-
ketball practice at the start of the
summer semester and called out a
squad drawn from Marine and Navy
trainees in the University PEM pro-
gram. Later, a call was issued for
Summer Practices held
The response to this new program
was gratifying from the point of
numbers, but subsequent drills only
served to bring out the tremendous
amount of work involved in placing
a top-flight Wolverine team on the
floor. Nevertheless, the final squad
will probably be drafted largely from
this group together with those fresh-
men and new students who come
out within the next few days.
Michigan will be out to do some-
thing this season which it has been
unable to do in several years-win a
championship. The Wolverine cage
fortunes have been at a rather low
ebb in recent years as Purdue, Illi-
nois, and Ohio State largely domi-
nated the Conference basketball
scene. Last season the cagers were
the only Michigan aggregation
which failed to finish above the .500
mark and also the only Wolverine
team in Big Ten play which failed
to annex a title.
