Ice Squad Packs Card
With Top Ranking Clubs
Wolverines Schedule Minnesota, Colorado;
Open Against Champion Windsor Spitfires

By DES HOWARTH
Highlighted by an intersectional
series with the University of Colo-
rado, a four game series with Minne-
sota's Gophers, and a host of other
first rate contests, the Wolverine
hockey schedule is one of the most
ambitious and colorful in Michigan

Michigan and Minnesota will re-
new their rivalry January 18 and 19'
here in Ann Arbor and will conclude
what promises to be an exciting series
in Minneapolis the first two days of
February. Last year Michigan ab-

history.v
25 Games
Opening here December 1 against
the formidable Windsor Spitfires,
Junior Champions of Ontario last
year, Coach Vic Heyliger's puckmen
will pry the lid off a spectacular 25
game schedule, which will see them in
action until the early part of March.
In addition to the Gophers and
Colorado, Michigan will encounter
Michigan Tech, McMasters Univer-
sity of Hamilton, Toronto University
and various leading amateur sextets
of Ontario. Home and away series
have been arranged with Minnesota,
Michigan Tech, Toronto, the Spitfires
and the Windsor Colonials. The Colo-
rado series will be played there Jan.
11 and 12.
New Opponents
This year's schedule will bring sev-
eral new teams to Ann Arbor. Owen
Sound Juniors will follow the Spit-
fires here on Dec. 8. Saulte St. Marie,
the Colonials, DeLaSalle, St. Cath-
erines, Gault, and McMasters all of
whom appear fon the. coliseum ice
this winter were not scheduled by the
Wolverines last year. As yet, how-
ever, the St. Catherines and Gault
games are only tentative. Sarnia,
beaten in a single game with Michi-
gan last season will make their ap-
pearance also.
Jackson Loses
To Ann Arbor
The Ann Arbor High School Pio-
neers met and defeated Jackson High
School's football team to the tune of
44-7 last night at Wines Field.
The star of yesterday's tilt was
Hank Platt, captain of Ann Arbor's
gridmen, who scored four touchdowns
for the Pioneers. Platt was also suc-
cessful in the point after touchdown
department, making two conversions.
Ted Judson, who also plays in the
backfield for Ann Arbor, shared the
limelight with Platt last night. Jud-
son was responsible for two touch-
downs.
Jackson scored its only touchdown
in the first quarter when Bill Gal-
breath,end, snagged a pass from Ray
Uribe which was good for 20 yards
and a touchdown.

NEWS + VIEWS + COMMENT
By BILL MULLENDORE, Sports Editor
WE AREN'T bragging, but we are just a wee bit proud of our score on
last week's predictions in the various Western Conference football
games.
Great Lakes crossed us up by beating Illinois, 12-6. but we were right
on all the others. We must admit, however, that Northwestern didn't
do our already frayed nerves any good by what it almost did to Ohio State.
Going down the line otherwise, we successfully picked Michigan
over Minnesota, but the margin of victory was quite a little more than,
our one-touchdown prediction. Frankly, we wish it had been five or six
instead of four.
. Wisconsin beat Iowa, as announced, but that one wasn't as close as we
had thought, either. Purdue took Pitt handily, as per schedule, and Indiana
had no trouble with Cornell College.
That gives us five out of six and an .833 average. If we do as well this
week, we might lose a button or two off our vest-if we owned a vest.
MICHIGAN-NAVY-Why do the tough ones have to come up first?
Navy is still the best team in the country-on paper-but you would
never know it from the record. On the basis of Michigan's perform-
ance last week, we'll take the Wolverines, again by a touchdown or so.
IOWA-ILLINOIS-Coach Ray Eliot's fumbling and stumbling Illini
win one at last. In fact, we don't see how they can lose.
NORTHWESTERN-WISCQNSIN-Should be easy for the Northwest-
erns, but they had better keep thei? eyes open. Wisconsin could pull an
upset here.
OHIO STATE-PITTSBURGH-Why does everybody pick on the
poor Panthers? They haven't a chance, it says here. Ohio State, by
plenty.
PURDUE-MIAMI (O.)--This is like taking candy from a baby. We
have never even heard of Miami, O., but the schedule says there is such an
institution. Write your own ticket on the score.
MINNESOTA-INDIANA-We'd like to see the Gophers win this one
since Indiana has to lose a game to give Michigan a shot at the title. But
common sense says the Hoosiers, and we hope we're wrong.
LAND BATTLESHIPS:

Baltimore To Be
Site of Grid Battle
(continued from Page 1)
ing, sports experts have hinted at dis-
sension in the ranks, improper coach-
ing, and just plain over-estimation.
Whether any or all of these charges
are correct stands to be decided in
large measure today:
Michigan, too, has a lot at stake.

tract from Michigan prestige as Cris-
ler's unseasoned youngsters drew
rave notices for their losing battle.
All-Americans
Navy will be at full strength for al-
most the first time this season. All-
American Bobby Jenkins and bruising
Clyde Scott, have fully recovered
from injuries and should be ready for
60 minutes of action, if necessary. In
the Middie line, All-American candi-
date Chuck Kiser will be back in his
regular right tackle position after a
long absence.
Michigan, on the other hand, finds
itself with a serious weakness at
quarterback for the fray. Otherwise,
the Wolverine squad should be in the
top shape it requires to play a heavier,
older, more experienced opponent.
Eyes will be focussed on the task
force of backs available to Hagberg,
and well they might. In addition to
Jenkins and Scott, the Middie squad
boasts such grid luminaries as ex-
Penn speedster Tony Minisi, Bob
Hoernschemeyer, the former Indiana
passing whiz, Bob Kelley, the Notre
Dame star, and several otheers.
200-Pound Average
But it must not be forgotten that
the Navy line is also one of the most
formidable in the nation. Averaging
over 200 pounds per man, it was good
enough to turn back two thrusts by
Irish All-American candidate Frank
Dance icz from the one-foot line
last week in the closing seconds of
play.
Other line stalwarts include ends
Leon Bramlett and Dick Duden, both
All-American possibilities, Kiser, and
center Rich Scott, an almost certain
All-America choice.
Against this beef trust, the Wol-
verline line, averaging 188, may be
hard put not only to halt the charge
of the Navy backs but also to open
holes for its own backfield stars. A
battle of lines, with the backs getting
second billing, would not be the most
surprising development.

Middies' Line Expected To Be
Main Threat Against Michigan

CLASSIFIED ADVERTISINGJ

By CLARK BAKER
When Navy trots on the field today
at Baltimore some 60,000 pairs of eyes
will be focused on the Middies' All-
American array of backfield luminar-
ies with all too few thoughts about
the front line which has kept the fu-
ture Admirals rolling.
Yet any other coach in the coun-
try would be satisfied if he had Os-
car Hagberg's line alone. Take
the ends, for instance. There's big
Leon BramIett, one of the stal-
warts of the line in 1944. And Cap-
tain Dick Duden who is strutting
Fifty Grapplers
Out For Squad
Servicemen Turn Out
For Varsity Wrestling
Fifty grapplers, two-thirds of whom'
are service personnel and one a vet-
eran, are vieing for positions on this
year's varsity wrestling team.
Art Sachsel, who wrestled in the
121-pound division on last year's
squad, is the only returning veteran
from that aggregation. Despite
this lack of experienced material,
Coach Cliff Keen is pleased with
the interest and great enthusiasm
shown by those out for the team.
Since most of the men have had no
previous wrestling experience, the
main emphasis in this week's practice
is conditioning, which also includes
some roadwork. Technique on the
mat is also being stressed.
Every man has been working very
hard the last few days, and Coach
Keen believes that with this spirit,
the 1946 wrestling team will develop
into a good outfit.
The season's schedule will be
worked out the second week of
next month. A tentative list of
opponents are Michigan State, In-
diana, Purdue, Ohio Stite, North-
western, Wisconsin, and Illinois.
There is still an opportunity for all
those interested in learning how to,
wrestle to come out for the team. Any"
men wishing to do so should report to
Coach Cliff Keen at Yost Field House
any afternoon after 3 o'clock.

his stuff on the flank after doing
most the Middies' blocking from a
backfield post last year. Duden is a
fine pass catcher whose most me-
morable afternoon was against
Penn when he moved all over
Franklin Field gathering in Bob
Hoernschmeyer's heaves.
Navy's loaded at tackle, too. Chuck
Kiser, who's been injured most of the
season will be ready for Michigan.
Notre Dame will remember for a long
time to come the Middies' other tac-
kle, John Coppedge. He was the fifth
man in the Irish backfield all after-
noon. With Kiser's return another
ace with plenty of experience, New-
bold Smith, is no better than third,
man.
Jim Carrington, at guard, is al-
ready being boomed for All-America.
His performances all year have amply
filled in for Big Ben Chase who grad-
uated last year. Ed Deramee is the
other guard who also saw action for
the Navy last year. Third-stringer
Jack Currace is the "Ponsetto" of the
Annapolis outfit. He boots those all
important extra points.
The center, Dick Scott, needs little
introduction. He is already acknowl-
edged as probably the top center in
the East and maybe even the country.
Scott played second string to Jack
Martin last year but he's blossomed
out on his own this fall.
That's the roster of the Navy
line and it's performances are well
supported by the statistics. Against
all comers this fall these stalwarts
have yielded a bare 103 yards per
game average . They're particularly
hot when the chips are down. No-
tre Dame had two plays from the
one-foot line against the Middies
last Saturday and each time the
Navy lads stopped them. Only the
Irish have been able to dent the
future Admirals' line for a touch-
down this year and they could do
it only once. Yes, line coach Rip
Miller's boys will offer a real chal-
lenge to Fritz Crisler's offense.
60,000 fans will be out to see the
Hoernschmeyers, the Scotts, the
Minisis, the Kellys, and the Jenkins
perform today. But the Navy line
will bear the real watching, for a big
hunk of the Maize and Blue strategy
will depend on the Wolverines crack-
ing the Navy front line of defense.

Not rated very highly at the start of
the fall campaign, the Wolverines
have made a surprising showing in
winning 'five games and losing only
two. One loss, to an Army eleven
generally rated as the best anywhere,
served to enhance rather than de-
Irish Will Fight
To Beat Army
NEW YORK, Nov. 9--0P)-Throngs
of skeptics who refused to believe last
year's 59-0 rout of the Irish gave an
underdog Notre Dame eleven a fight-
ing chance to upset the Army power-
house today in the Nation's number
one football game.
A crowd of 76,000 was certain to
jam the Yankee Stadium for the
perennial sellout with a collection of
assorted brass hats, cadets, GIs, sub-
way alumni and friends of the family.
The Army was conceded to be the
best club in the country with its pow-
erful line and dazzling backfield com-
bination of Glenn Davis and Doc
Blanchard.
