Speedy Teninga
Leading Ground
Gainer Per Try
With seven of the ten games al-
ready in the books, freshman Walt
Teninga is the leading ground gainer
of the fast moving Michigan back-
The young Oak Park, Illinois speed-
ster has picked up 322 yards in 53
tries for an average of 6.74 yards per
try. Second to Teninga with 195
yards in 38 attempts for a 5:12 aver-
age is the scat-back Henry Fonde.
Closely on the heels of Fonde is
Pete Elliot, who shares the regular
left half position with Teninga, Pete
has carried the ball for 235 yards in
47 plays, an even five yard average.
Right half Bob Nussbaumer has car-
ried the pigskin 28 times and gained
130 yards for an average of 4,67
yards a try.
Dworsky Converted
The statistics of some of the other
Wolverines follow closely on the heels
of Nussbaumer. 'Dan Dworsky who
has been converted from fullback to
plug a hole at quarterback has gained
168 yards from the plunging back
position in 26 tries for an average of
4.66 yards. Jack Weisenburger has
lugged the leather 49 times for 218
yards and an average gain of 4.15
yards per try.

THE TIME: 5:45 p.m. (EST) TO-
game workout in the stadium. The
return journey will begin immediately
after the game.
As last-minute preparations came
down to the final wire, two big prob-
lems continued to beset the Wolver-
ine coaching staff. The first re-
volves around the highly uncertain
quarterback position, and the second,
held over from last week, concerns
the placekicking department.
Quarterback Is Problem
Quarterbacking plans, believed set-
tled by the fine performance of sub-
stitute Howard Yerges in a first string
role, were scrambled at the beginning
of the week when Yerges turned up
with an injured ankle.
With regular signal-caller Joe Pon-
setto and third stringer Don Robin-
son sidelined for the season by in-
juries, no experienced quarterback is
available to Coach Fritz Crisler un-
less Yerges' ankle mends in time for
Saturday's game. Whether or not
that will happen is still a question.
As for placekickers, the big blow
was the loss of Ponsetto, who ordi-
narily kicks .off and boots points-
after-otuchdowns. Tackle Bob Calla-
han filled in last week on conversions,
and Jack Weisenburger handled the
kickoffs, but Crisler is still seeking
strength at both spots.
Derleth Injured
Only other doubtful man on the
squad is Bob Derleth, 225-pound tac-
kle, also the victim of a leg injury.
Derleth's weight has been a big help
to the Wolverines since his return to
the squad, and would be especially
welcome against the heavy Middie
line Saturday.
Crisler will wind up drills this aft-
ernoon with intensive signal practice
and other light work designed to iron
out any possible rough spots in
Michigan's offensive and defensive
strategy prepared for the men from
the Naval Academy.
Dyer Takes Over Reigns
Of St. Louis Cardinals
HOUSTON, Tex., Nov. 7-()-
Drawling Eddie Dyer, expressing
surprise at being named manager of
the St. Louis Cardinals, said today,
"If all the kids come back and we
don't make any mistakes in placing
them, we'll be the club to beat next
season in the National League."
The 45-yearold Dyer is a former
Cardinals minor league executive and
once manager of the Houston Buffs
in the Texas League where he led
the club home first three times in
three seasons.
Dyer Takes Over Reins
To Guide Boston Braves
BOSTON, Nov. 7-(P)-A three year
contract, which he described today as
"the opportunity that comes to a
baseball manager only once in his
career" has tempted Billy South-
worth to leave the highly successful
St. Louis Cardinals to direct the re-
building of the lowly Boston Braves.

Cagers Whip
BRomulus Air
Base 65-37
Selbo Top Scorer
I Practice Game
Getting off to a fast start in its
first practice test of the season, Mich-
igan's basketball team thoroughly
trounced the Romulus Air Base Fliers,
65-37, yesterday afternoon at Yost
Field House.
Glenn Selbo, Wolverine forward,
copped high-scoring honors for both
teams, sinking six. field goals and
one foul shot for 13 points. Second
in the top-scoring column was fel-
low-forward Bob Harrison, another
newcomer to the Maize and Blue
squad, with 11 points, resulting from
five pay-off tosses and a foul throw.
Coach Bill Barclay's boys led
throughout the entire contest, piling
up an eight-point lead by half time.
The Wolverines ran roughshod over
the Fliers, whose weak showing was
attributed to lack of practice.
Forge Ahead at Start
Michigan's starting lineup consisted
of Selbo and Bill Walton, forwards,
John Mullaney and Bob Harrison at
the guard berths, and Marty Feinberg
in the center slot. This smooth-
working quintet forged ahead in the
opening minutes of play, piling up an
ever-increasing lead as the period
progressed to make the count read
30-22 when the whistle blew.
Forwards Dave Strack and Jack
Dietrich, and guards Bill Gregor and
Harold Westerman took over for thej
Wolverines in the second period,
while Feinberg remained at center.
Strack notched up the most points for
this half, potting three goals and
three charity-tosses, for a nine-check
Harder Stars
In the last three minutes of play,
Keith Harder, '44-5 letterman, re-
placed Feinberg' at center. Dashing
around the court like a man inspired,
Harder plunked three gold-mine shots
before the end of the game.
Coach Barclay was satisfied with
the showing of the Michigan cagers
and the outcome of the clash, but
stated, "There's still plenty of room
for improvement in the defensive
play of the team."

Associate Sports Editor

WHETHER recent attempts by the cheerleaders and the Daily to enlist the
entire student body in more enthusiastic and spontaneous support of
Michigan athletic teams have been successful will be proved tonight when
the parade from the Union to the railroad station forms to give the 36-
man squad the only going-away present possible from the students.
At that time, the team will either be buoyed up for its hopeful excursion'
to Baltimore, or completely let down. No compromise is possible, since a
half-hearted, poorly-attended demonstration by the students will leave the
gridder in a more unhealthy state of mind than no demonstration at all.
It would be unnecessary for us to go into the whys of more spon-
taneous Michigan cheering. We gave the background of all that in
last Sunday's column. We talked about the traditions of the Big Ten,
the propitious post-war circumstances which have opened the way for
better cheering efforts, and the chance to demonstrate Michigan student
unity which is so seldom given on campus. We are certainly not rah-
rah artists of the old school. We can, however, help the student to dis-
cover how more spirit is to be achieved.
ASA result of response received from both students and cheerleaders on
the Sunday column, we are printing all the Michigan cheers--old and
new--and the three Michigan songs that are always sung at football games.
A section of the returning students at the Minnesota game did not get
copies of the yells which were passed out during the summer contests. As
a matter of fact, the finances of the cheerleaders made it possible for only
100 yell sheets to be mimeographed for the Gopher-Wolverine tilt.
The organizers of the sendoff rally have done everything possible to
promote it. The cheerleaders are having "Beat Navy" posters made, the
Daily is publishing the event and familiarizing its readers with the cheers,
and the Band will get into uniform and play Michigan songs on the march
to the Station-not a particularly pleasant task, we might add.
Cooperation in the organization which makes tle rally possible has
been first-rate. If that kind of cooperation can be elicited from the
students-and we mean the majority of the students on campus-who
will take part in the demonstration, it is sure to start the upsurge of
spirit needed at Michigan.

Swim Gala.
Is Scheduled
For Dec. 15
Swim Gala, annual Wolverine
swimming extravaganza and curtain-
raiser for the latest edition of Matt
Mann's Maize and Blue aquatic won-
ders, will take place at the Intra-
mural Building December 15.
Featured on the night's program
will be the Michigan A.A.U. swim-
ming and diving championships for
men and women, special handicap
races, a high school invitation handi-
cap and, very likely, a clown diver
for good measure.
Men's events on the card will be 50-
and 220-yard free style races, 100-
yard breaststroke, 100-yard back-
stroke and high diving events. For
the feminine attraction there will be
a 50-yard free style race and a 50-
yard backstroke event.
Three Veterans Return
Meanwhile, the 1945-46 Wolverine
natators under Coach Mann's watch-
ful eye are already training intensive-
ly for defense of their various titles
this coming season. Three veterans,
breasistroker Heini Kessler, free sty-
ler Chuck Fries and backstroker Gor-
don Pulford, are back to lend their
experience to Matt Mann's host of
promising freshman prospects.
The schedule for the Maize and
Blue splashers will not be announced
until after the completion of the
football season when the Big Ten
coaches get together late this month.

ground gainer at five yards a shot is
Pete Elliott.

Experienced Canadians
.Dominate Puck Team


Boasting a roster which contains a
wealth of good hockey players, Mich-
gan's 1945-46 puck squad is priming
for its first engagement against the
crack Windsor Spitfires December 1
in the border city.
The Wolverine line-up is studded
with young but experienced Cana-
dians, all of whom have seen action in
Dominion Junior Cup play. Although
the squad's age averages only about
eighteen, Coach Vic Heyliger has
veteran pucksters at every position.
Heyliger has three forward lines and
at least two defense lines, all of equal
strength, so the Wolverines will be
able to send a fresh team on the ice
at all times.
First Line Set
Michigan's first line will have Walt-
er Gacek at center with Walt Grant
on the left wing and Neil Celley at
right wing. Gacek played for the
Winnipeg Monarchs in the Western
Canada Junior Cup finals last year.
Grant and Celley played for the Eve-
leth, Minn., high school team, which
won the state hockey championship.
Clem Cossalter, defenseman, who is
also on the Michigan ice squad team-
ed with Grant and Celley.
Gordon McMillian center and Bill
Jacobson and Al Renfrew at the wings
comprise the second line. Each has
seen action in Canadian Junior Cup
finals, and all have played consider-
able hockey. The third line will
have Chet Kuznier who hails from
Sudbury, Ont., playing center. Dick
Starrak from Moose Jaw, Can., will
be on the left wing and Bob Arnett,
who gained his puck experience
around Regina, Can., will handle the
right wing duties.
Canadians Dominate
Bob Marshall and Ross Smith, for-
merly of the RCAF are on defense
Beginning Monday, November 12
the I-M Building will be open in the
evening until 10 p.m. from Monday
through Friday.
Starting tomorrow Friday nights
from 7:30 to 10:00 p.m., the Build-
ing will be available for veterans
and their wives only. The program
will consist of badminton, swim-
mig and volley ball. Veterans are
requested to furnish their own
rackets, birds and swim suits.
Entries for the basketball leagues,
fraternity, dormitory and indepen-
dent, should be ,turned in to Earl
Riskey, director of intramural sports,
as soon as possible. Practice periods
can be arranged next week.

line. Connie Hill and Cossalter form,
the other. Before going into service
Marshall was a member of the 1942-
43 Oshawa Generals, Ontario Junior
Champs. Smith did his skating for
Toronto's De LaSalle. With the Cana-
dian Army until recently, Hill has
seen action in Pacific Coast and On-
tario hockey circles.
Minding Michigan nets this season
will be Dick McInnes another Tor-
onto product. McInnes was a sub
goalie in last year's Memorial cup
play with the Moose Jaw Seniors.
Dick Mixer, last year's Wolverine
goalie, will understudy McInnes.
Other prospects include Jim John-
son, son of the great Ching Johnson,
Joe Marzlik from Toronto, and Sam
Steadman of Winnipeg. All will
probably see much action before the
season's end.

Michigan Stadium
Michigan Stadium is now Mich-
igan Stadium.
The University Board of Re-
gents made the name official in its
meeting Tuesday night, after re-
tiring Athletic Director Fielding
H. Yost, under whose guidance the
giant bowl was constructed, de-

Dedicated in 1927, the Stadium,
one of the nation's largest, has
never had an official title, but has
been popularly called by its pres-
ent name.

Thirty Grapplers Out for Drills;
Sachsel Only Returning Veteran

Thirty men reported at the Yost'
Fieldhouse yesterday for the Univer-
sity of Michigan's wrestling team's
first practice in preparation for the
1946 season.
Coach Cliff Keen reported that of,
the men out for the squad, only three
are experienced and the only return-
ing veteran from last year's squad is
Art Sachsel, who wrestled in the 121-
lb. class.
Keen, who has been wrestling coach
at the University since 1925, recently
received his discharge from the Navy
after serving for three and one-half
years and returned to Michigan to re-
sume his job. He announced a ten-
tative schedule for the 1946 season.
Included in the matches will be Ohio
State, Illinois, Northwestern, Indi-'
ana, Purdue, Wisconsin, and Michi-
gan State. The possibility of a meet
before Christmas was also forseen.
Practices are being held from 3:00
to 6:00- p. m. Monday through Friday

and will continue until the season
opens. Keen asserted, "Technique and
conditioning will be stressed during
the early practices. Also, the men
will learn what to do and how to do
it with reference to wrestling."
According to Keen, "Now is the
best time for wrestlers to come out
for the team, because there will be no
squad cutting."
"Swede" Larson Dies
ATLANTA, Nov. 7 - ( P) - Emory
Ellsworth (Swede) Larson, 46-year
old Marine Colonel whose genial lead-
ership of football teams endeared
him to the U. S. Naval Academy at
Annapolis, Md., died here today.
Col. Larson was stricken several
days ago while in Atlanta in the
course of his Naval duties.
