Illini in Homecoming Game

Likely Cage
Starters Cut
To Seven
Berce Called Best,;
Harder Close Behind
By MARY LU HEATH
With the Dec. 2 opener against
Western Michigan just a little over
three weeks away, Assistant Basket-
ball Coach Bill Barclay yesterday
named seven candidates for the '44
cage quintet from which the five
starters against the Broncos will be
chosen.
This list is subject to revision when
returning lettermen Don Lund, for-
ward Bruce Hilkene, and a score of
other aspirants report at the end of
the current grid campaign Nov. 25,
along with Head Coach Ben Ooster-
baan. However, it is doubtful wheth-
er these men will be able to get in
shape for the initial contest.
At present, the seven players
named are composed of two civil-
ians, four Navy V-12 trainees, and
one Marine. The forwards will be
picked from freshman Ted Berce
of Dearborn, called by Barclay his
"best player at present." His chal-
lengers for the forward post will be
the former University of Virginia
star, Keith Harder, and Marine
trainee Bill Gregor, outstanding
slugger and varsity left fielder on
Coach Ray Fisher's championship
baseball squad last season.
Although Gregor has had no ex-
periencesince playing with his high
school club, the Edwardsville, Ill.
boy has shown that he is capable of
very aggressive basketball since his
recent appearance at Field House
practices. Water Kell, a teammate
of Gregor on the baseball squad, is
also in the running for a berth on
the team as a guard. The former
third basema is a V-12 student.
The two other possible guards
are Don Lindquist, a Navy boy, an1
John Mullaney, a civilian. The
only center under consideration is
big Bob Geahan, who reported to
the team this fall. He -is also a
member of the V-12 unit.
This completes the picture at pres-
ent, but the potentialities of the 20-
man squad are by no means lodged
completely in these seen men.

Comparative Effectiveness of Single Wing,
T' Formations To Be Tested in Vital Contest
By BILL MULLENDORE
Michigan's largest home crowd of the season is expected to be on
hand Saturday for the important homecoming contest with Illinois which
will feature not only two of the most potent offenses in the nation but also
will have an important bearing on the outcome of the current Western Con-

With the recent departure of the
two Bobs, Wiese and Nussbaumer,
the Michigan football spotlight has
been focused on two men. both occu-
pying a starting role for the first
time in a Wolverine uniform, Don
Lund and Ralph Cnubb.
This duo made its debut last week-
end against Penn and, left no doubt
as to .its ability to take over where
Wiese and Nussbaumer left off, but
a great many eyes will be turned on
them again this week as they show
off before the home fans.
Lund is no newcomer to the Michi-
gan grid ranks, having won two let-
ters on the gridiron previously. But
until last Saturday the husky full-
back from Detroit has occupied the
old "always a bridesmaid but never a
bride" role as he understudied first
Wiese, then All-American Bill Daley.
and this season Wiese again.
Good on Defense
The parade of . great fullbacks
which has graced the Michigan
squad ever since H. O. Crisler took
over as coach must have been a little
frustrating to Lund, who, in the
opinion of most observers, is good
enough at his position to start on
almost any team in the nation.
Unfortunately for him, there has
always been someone just a shade
better in the Michigan camp to
deprive him of a starting assignment.
Lund is known to most Wolverine
fans as an unusually capable defens-
ive ball player especially adept at the
art of keeping passes away from
their intended receivers. In fact, he
was utilized as a defensive halfback
earlier this season, going in at center
as Wiese shifted from his halfback
post to back up the line.
Chubb Is Newcomer
What many don't know is that
Lund can also carry the ball, punt
very 'well, and pass better than a lot
of backs, Operating as a substitute
fullback last year, the genial blond
battering ram picked up 260 yards in
48 attempts for an excellent 5.1 aver-
age. Against Penn last week he
showed that he hasn't forgotten how
to carry the mail as he rambled 52
yards in 11 tries.
Chubb, on the other hand, is a
newcomer to the Michigan squad,
playing in his first year for Crisler.
A graduate of Ann Arbor High,
Chubb reported as a fullback, but
with Wiese and Lund around his
opportunities at that post would have
been very limited, so he was con-
verted to the wingback position as
Nussbaumer's understudy.
Chubb saw limited action in the
All Union Tryouts of last seme-
ster and all men interested in be-
ing on the Tryout Staff this fall
are iirzed to come to the student

first five games of the season but
proved his ability against Penn as he
led the Wolverine backs in the
ground gaining department, rolling
ug134 yards in 21 tries for a 6.3
average.
Men Work Together
This local lad, who follows in the
footsteps of another pretty fair
Michigan back of Ann Arbor heri-
tage, Bob Westfall, is not as fast as
Nussbaumer but is a harder runner
and a more difficult man to bring
down. As a ball carrier he promises
to aid the Wolverine cause more than
a little in the three remaining games.,
Even though both Lund and Chubb
have proven capable individually,
their real importance to the Michi-
gan football fortunes comes from
their ability to fit into the starting
combination. Both men did the bulk
of their early season work as mem-
bers of a second'string backfield
{ which operated as a unit, and some
1 difficulties in coordination might
have been expected when they were
moved up so abruptly.
But any doubts as to their ability
to work into the starting backfield
were quickly dispelled in the Penn
fracas.
Detroit Lions Ask Waiversj
On Aello, Substitute Back
DETROIT, Nov. 8.-(AP)-The De-
troit Lions, National League pro foot-
ball team, asked waivers today on
Tony Aiello, 165-pound halfback
from Youngstown College. This was
Aiello's first year in the league. The
Lions obtained him from the Card-
Pitts just before the season started.

TWO MEN TO WATCH-Don Greenwood, Illinois quarterback, and
Eddie Bray, a diminutive but dangerous halfback, have had a lot to do
with the success of the Illini this fall.
MAN WITH IDEAS:
Army-Notre Dame Clash May
Shed Light on Cadet-Navy Tilt

By WHITNEY MARTIN
NEW YORK, Nov. 8.-(/P)- It's
just an idea:
That, contrary to what might be
expected, the defeat of Notre Dame
by.Navy failed to dull the interest in
the Irish-Army game here Saturday.
It just switched it to a new angle,
with Notre Dame as the guinea pig.
The Cadets must do as well as the
Middies did, or else.

That everyone is glad to see Joe'
Louis picking up a couple of bucks
on his exhibition tour. And inciden-
tally, the big guy seems to have lost
none of the dynamite in his fists.
They can't even smother it with
pillows. He got $6,000 in Detroit.
That they must teach change-of-
pace running at Notre Dame, as Bob
Kelly and Creighton Miller employ
that system.

ference free-for-all for the grid title.
Good weather will probably bring"
out a larger turnout than the 50,000
fans who witnessed Michigan's game
with Purdue two weeks ago. Con-
sidered a minor attraction at the1
start of the season, the Wolverine-
Illini duel has taken on added sig-
nificance with each passing week and'
may very easily be the top game of'
the year here.
Title Hopes at Stake
From any angle the Saturday fray
bears watching. Wolverine hopes+
for at least a share of the Big Ten
crown will be on the block, as will
those of Illinois. Defeat for either
team will mean virtual elimination
from the race.
Both squads should be in top shape
physically for the battle. Michigan
was battered up considerably in the
Penn tilt last weekend, but aside
from a few bumps and bruises every
man has recovered completely. Illi-
nois was given a respite from the
football wars by an open date last
Saturday and has had time to recup-
erate from the pounding taken in the
Notre Dame struggle the previous
week.
As far as mental attitude is con-
cerned, both teams should be at a
peak. Each has a lot at stake, and
neither can afford to lose. In addi-
tion, the Michigan-Illinois series is
steeped in tradition, dating all the
way back to 1898. The Illini in par-
ticular consider their season a suc-
cess if it includes a victory over Mi-
chigan, something they haven't reg-
istered in the past four years.
"T" Versus Single Wing
From another angle, the game
should prove interesting as a com-
parison between two fundamental
types of offense-the Illinois "T"
formation and Michigan's single wing
style. Even though the Wolverines
have utilized the "T" to some extent
this fall, their basic formation is still
the famed Crisler system, employing

a single wing with a man in motion
and numerous fakes and spinners.
Proponents of the "T", which now
include, a sizable number of the na-
tion's top coaches, insist that their
formation, when correctly executed,
is superior to any other offensive
style in football. Single wing advo-
cates will argue just as vigorously
that theirs is the more potent sys-
tem. Saturday's game between two
teams of practically equal offensive
merit should provide an interesting
comparison.
Provided that fair weather pre-
vails, this game could easily result in
one of those slambang high scoring
duels commonly associated with
Southwestern football. Both teams
have proved their ability to move the
ball andsscore touchdowns, and both
will be out to do just that Saturday.
