Maize and Blue

edore Great Navy Football

Daily Sports Editor
We saw Navy humble Michigan, 33-7, last Saturday. To
say that we were impressed with the Middie squad would be put-
ting it mildly. As a team, Coach Oscar Hagberg's eleven, or
rather elevens, was just about the best we have ever seen on a
football field.
We make that statement with one important qualification.
We have not seen the 1945 Army team play. Army may be
better, but, frankly, we don't see how it could be.
The Navy line was superb. It was big, and it was fast.
Time after time the Middie tackles and guards hauled down
the fastest of the Michigan backs from behind. That is some-
thing you don't see very often.
Hagberg undoubtedly has the best pair of ends in football in

Leon Bramlett and Team Captain Dick Duden. We have that
from no less eminent an authority than Michigan Coach Fritz
Crisler. Personally, we don't see any good reason why both
should not be named All-American.
Then there are those Navy backs. Never before have we
seen so many top-flight runners and passers on the same
roster. Army may have the best one-two combination its
the country, but Navy has depth and plenty of it.
We were not too surprised when Clyde Scott, Bobby Jenkins,
Bruce Smith (no relation to the Minnesota All-American), Tony
Minisi, and company began to run wild. But when guys bearing
such unheralder names as Joe Bartos, Jim Petit, Chuck Welsh,
and a bunch of others looked just as good as their predecessors,
we sat up and took due notice.
We saw no evidence of dissension in the Middie ranks. If

there ever was any, it had certainly been well ironed-out by last
In connection with that aspect of the Navy squad, we heard
an interesting story from the sports editor of one of the more
prominent Baltimore papers. This source, who seemed to know
whereof he spoke, claimed that no less a personage than Bob
(Hunchy) Hoernschemeyer has been the number one trouble-
We cannot vouch for the truth of the yarn, but it was
significant that Hoernschemeyer did not get into the game at
all. Officially, he had a sore arm, but it wasn't evident in
pratice. Nor did Navy need him. Smith is perfectly capable
of doing all the passing the Middies will ever require.
Navy blocked and tackled with a ferocity we have never
before been privileged to witness. From starters to the lowliest
substitutes, they all hit with a crispness and sharpness that was

beautiful to watch. And the precision of the Middies' T-attack
was also something to be wondered at.
True, all the Middie touchdowns developed from so.
called "breaks." But, frankly, we never saw anything very
lucky about a blocked punt. Nor about a pass Intercepton,
for that matter. Such "breaks" are made, and Navy made
them. Fumbles are another mhatter, but it was a miracle to
us that Michigan did not fumble oftener, the way the Mid-
dies were slamming down the ball carriers.
The question inevitably arises, is Navy as good as Army on the
basis of what it showed against Michigan? We wish we knew.
We do know that Navy would have been a mighty tough opponent
for any team Saturday, including power-laden Army. Perhaps
Crisler's cautious observation that "there isn't much to choose
between them" will have to suffice until the two teams actually
clash a few weeks hence
Crisler Reviews

Grant Is Puck Squad


Coach 'Fritz'

Most Improved Player
Freshman Speedster Will Hold Left Wing
Position Throughout This Season's Play

SitLation After Navy'

Looking pver the 1945 Michigan
hockey team, Coach Vic Heyliger in-
dicated that Wally Grant, of Eveleth,
Minnesota, was one of the fastest
and most improved players on the
Grant, a 17 year old freshman, will
be holding down the left wing spot
for the Wolverine pucksters this sea-
son. He relies mostly on speed since
he is one of the smallest members of
the Wolverine sextet, reaching the
flive feet seven inch mark, and has a
slight build. His speed on the ice,
coupled with the fact that his stick
work is better than average, will make
him one of the players for the Maize
and Blue's opposition to watch.
Led High School Team
Michigan's new left wingep gradu-
ated from Eveleth High School in
June where he captained the puck
squad, and led his team to the state
championship. Playing along side of
Grant, were Neil Celley and Clem

Cossalter, who came with him to
Michigan and are also on the roster
of this year's hockey squad.
Coaching Grant during his high
school years, was Cliff Thompson who
taught him the dll important funda-
mentals of the game. Thompson also
coached Frank Brimsck, who gained
top honors in the National Hockey
League, with the Boston Bruins, as
one of the countries leading goalies.
Hails From Minnesota
Coming from northern Minnesota
where people spend most of their
spare time at the numerous rinks, it
was only natural that Grant should
begin to skate at an early age. As
he continued playing hockey, his
experience as a youngster was a great
aid to him.
Concerning the chances of the 1945
team, Grant believes that Michigan
should have a good year considering
that the squad has been practicing
since early September and is round-
ing into top form.

NO LUCK-Leonard Ford, Wolverine end (in front of referee) failed to
c.atch the third pass tried by Michigan against Navy last Saturday in a
second quarter attempt to score. The pass was knocked out by Clyde
Scott (light jersey, arm outstretched).

Power Defeats

Scoring at will against a badly
under-manned but determined Hills-
dale College eleven, Michigan's Junior
Varsity rolled to an easy 49-6 victory
Saturday afternoon.
The Wolverines sent their number
one combination against the Dales,
but reserves finished the contest after
the regulars had piled up a 24 point
lead in the opening period. Joe Ferri,
Michigan halfback looked good
although playing only a few minutes.
For the Jayvees it was their second
victory in three starts. Previously
they had beaten Alma and lost to
Ohio State's Junior squad.

Team iTo Prepare
For Boilermak .ers
Michigan football coach Fritz Cris-
ler yesterday gloomily surveyed the
wreckage wrought by Navy's crushing
33-7 defeat of his charges and grimly
set about the task of patching to-
gether a lineup for Saturday's impor-
tant Western Conference engagement
with Purdue here.
There wasn't much to brighten the
picture as Crisler announced that
regular left halfback Walt Teninga
probably would not play against the
Boilermakers and that Howard Yer-
ges, first string quarterback, also is
not expected to be in shape.

Protest Siuniuo
Of Ball Player.
NEW YORK, Nov. 12-(A)-The
Negro National and American Leagues
revealed today they had filed an offi-
cial protest with Baseball Commis-
sioner A. B. (Happy) Chandler on
the signing of Jackie Robinson, a
member of the Kansas City Monarchs,
by Brooklyn president Branch Rickey
for the Dodgers' Montreal Farm in
the International League.
In a letter addressed to Chandler,
the two Negro loops, following a
joint meeting here last Friday, said
they wished it understood they were
glad to see Negro players get the op
portunity to play in white organized
baseball, but were protesting the
"way it was done."
Charging Rickey with "piracy," Dr.
J. B. Martin, president of the Negro
American League, and T. Wilson,
National League prexy, insisted that
Robinson had made a verbal agree-
ment to play with the Monarchs in
1946, but was lured away by the
Dodgers' boss.
