For 'Jug' Tilt
By BILL MULLENDORE
Daily Sports Editor
Minnesota and Bernie Bierman, al-
ways a combination to be feared in
Western Conference football circles,
will arrive in Ann Arbor tonight
ready to do battle with Michigan's
up-and-coming young eleven tomor-
row afternoon at the Michigan Sta-
Labeled as the top offensive aggre-
gation in the Mid-West, the Golden
Gophers will present a typical rough,
tough, heavy squad to the 85,000 fans
expected to form the largest crowd of
the. current home season.
Averages 190 Pounds
A line averaging well over 190
pounds and a backfield of more than
185 assure Minnesota a definite
weight advantage over the Wolver-
ines. Bierman's squad has speed as
well, along with maneuverability and
The result has been that in two
Big Ten games the Gophers have av-
eraged more than 371 yards total of-
fense, far more than their nearest
rival. Passing, usually a very minor
weapon with Bierman, has accounted
for a surprising 115 yards of that
The Minnesota line is spearheaded
by big Bob Hanzlik, 195-pound guard
who was a starting tackle on the 1943
Michigan eleven. O t h e r forward
standouts include center and line
backer Dick Van Dusen, guard Bob
Graiziger, and ends Johnny Lundin
and Bob Carley, whose glue fingers
have been largely responsible for the
success of the Gopher aerial offensive.
But it is in the backfield that this

THREE ACES REUNITED-America's three aces of the air war in Europe were reunited in the flight test
section of the air technical service command at Wright Field, Dayton, Ohio. They are (left to right), with

English pounds he borrowed from Gentile two years ago.
"Universal military training will
never assist in creating international
good will and will certainly seriously
handicap the preparation of our
youth for service to society," Presi-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven told 250
editors and publishers of Michigan
newspapers gathered here for the an-
nual convention of the University
The hope for an enduring peace, he
declared, lies in our ability to develop
a balanced program of co-operation
among our own citizens and between
nations and racial groups.
Invest in Education
"It is my conclusion that, if we
would make available a small frac-
tion of the amount of the cost of the
last war for the education to equip
the individual with the knowledge of
the nature of the world and men,
the dangers of wars of aggression
could be greatly minimized through
mutual understanding," President
Dr. Harry A. Overstreet, lecturer in
adult education for the Extension
Service of the University, told the edi-
tors and publishers that an agency as
powerfultas the American newspaper
dares not evade the moral responsi-
bilities that its power carries.

Men Urged to Contact
A plea has been issued to all re-

cording to'Dogan Arthur, president
of the Interfraternity Council.
Veterans To Benefit
Arthur explained that the veterans
themselves will benefit by renewing
affiliation with their fraternity broth-
ers, while at the same time the fra-
ternities will welcome the maturity
and leadership that the veterans can
offer. He encouraged the veterans to
contact their fraternities through the
IFC and offered the facilities of his
office to the veterans.
Registration for rushing will con-
tinue today in the student offices of
the Union, but beginning next week,
registration will take place in the

It was the Army's second attempt

of the goal because of constant ad-
