Lead At Stake

Broken Jaw May Sideline Jack Weisenburger
For Crucial Battle With Unbeaten Northwestern

Latest word on Jack Weisen-
berger's availability for Satur-
day's game is that Ray Roberts,
Michigan trainer has fixed up a
special protective guard for the
injured fullback's jaw and it now
likely that he will see action if he
is needed.
Jack Weisenburger, Michigan's 178
pound fullback, will miss Saturday's
showdown with Northwestern be-
cause of a fractured jaw suffered in
the first period of the Army game.
Early reports indicated that Wei-
senburger's jaw was not fractured
but a closer scrutiny of x-ray pic-
tures revealed the break.
Aside from Weisenburger, Michi-
gan is at full strength for the game
with .the Wildcats, who currently
share first place in the Conference
with the Wolverines.
Bob Wiese and Dan Dworsky will
share the fullbacking duties next
Saturday. Wiese's play in the Army
game indicated that he is rounding

into the 1943 form that ranked him
among the best backs in the nation.

In addition to his effective running
from the spinning fullback slot,
Wiese's punts averaged a sensational
45 yards against the Cadets.
Dworsky,-who has been playing be-
hind Weisenburger and Wiese on of-
fense so far this season may get a
chance tq run against the Wildcats.
The 200 - pound bull-dozer from
Sioux Falls, S.D. is rated as one of
the hardest tackling line backers in
the Conference.
Northwestern comes up for the
Michigan game with a pair of first
stringers on the casualty list. They
are Dean Thomas, 225-pound guard,
and Jerry Carle, Coach Lyn Wald-
orf's number one signal caller.
The Wildcats boast a three cor-
nered running offense with a pair of
hard driving fullbacks plus break-
away runners at both halves. Art
Murakowski and Ralph Everist have
provided the Purple with more than
ample line bucking power while Vic
Schwall and Frank Aschenbrenner,
the ex-Great Lakes great, are twin

Gallops Again
To Fool Critics
Old 98's Come Back
Give Rams Title Hope
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 17-( P)-Old
number 98, Tom Harmon of Michi-
gan, is flashing up and down the
gridiron again, and the Los Angeles
Rams feel he may make good in their
bid to retain the National Football
League championship.
After Harmon's running in the 28-
28 tie with the Chicago Bears, the
Rams are hepped up to meet the
Detroit Lions here Sunday, confi-
dent of starting a victory string
leading to another title.
Personal Vindication
But great as Harmon's perform-
ance has been for the Rams' team
morale, it is more noteworthy as a
personal vindication for the former
Wolverine All-American himself.
Harmon's 88-yard touchdown run
against Green Bay and 14-yard dash
against the Bears stopped the dirge-
tolling bellringers in mid-bong.
Rivals Jeer
g The management of the rival All-
America Dons, among others, sneered
"washed up," even before Harmon's
disheartening performances in early
season games with the College All-
Stars and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Some critics suspected Harmon, who
is married to actress Elsye Knox, of
"Going Hollywood."
A series of injuries to war-weak-
ened muscles made this 27-year
old's comeback attempt appear an
almost certain flop.
After the All-Star game in Chi-
cago, Harmon said: "I'm going back
there some day and show 'em, I can
still play football."
The University Golf Course will
be closed after Sunday, Oct. 20.

Associate Sports Editor
It's been along time since Michi-
gan won an undisputed Conference
grid title-1933 to be exact. Coach
Fritz Crisler has never won one, even
though he's coached some great
teams since coming here in 1938.
This looks like the year, but there
are still one or two big "ifs."
The biggest "if" will be known
about five o'clock this Saturday
when the final whistle has blown
in the Michigan - Northwestern
game. For right now the Wolver-
ines and Wildcats are sitting on
top of the Big Nine heap, both
with two wins and no losses. Bar-
ring a tie, the lead will be shared
alone next Saturday night.
It's a pretty good bet that the win-
ner will go on to win the crown. This
doesn't mean that either team will
walk in from there, but they'll be
many strides on the way.
There is, of course, a strong pos-
sibility that highly touted Illinois-
upset by Indiana last Saturday-
could still finish on top. Or for that
matter so could the Hoosiers from
Bloomington, who have won their
last two outings against Big Nine
Michigan, incidentally, is in the
driver's seat this year. Crisler's
gang plays seven conference op-
ponents, which is more than does
any other team. If Northwestern
drops one game, the Wolverines
can lose one also but still wind up
with the title.
Biggest threat to the Maize and
Blue this week will undoubtedly be
a Mr. Frank Aschenbrenner. Asch-
enbrenner is reputed to be one of the
best backs in the country. His re-
putation is based on grid services
performed while with Marquette's
Hilltoppers and the Great Lakes'
It can hardly be expected that
the Wildcat's threat will perform
in the manner of either Glenn
Davis or Doe Blanchard which
may be some consolation for
Michigan fans. On the other hand
it is also doubtful if the Wolver-
ines will play quite the brand of
ball they played against Army.
There were few, if any teams out-
side of Army, which could have beat-
en Crisler's fighting eleven Satur-
day. But a let-down this week is to
be expected. Just how much of a let-
down the Wolverines may suffer will
tell the story.
The second "if" in discussing
Michigan's chances concerns the
Illinois game, one week after the
Wildcat clash. The Illini lost much
prestige by losing to Indiana, 14-7.
Up to then it was predicted that
they would have a great deal to
say about the title race and they
still may. They'll be laying for
the Wolverines, knowing that ano-
ther loss would knock them out of
the picture. (The Illini must of
course get by Wisconsin this
After that chances are, on paper,
very good that the Maize and Blue
will end up on the pinnacle. As yet
we're not mortgaging the house on
anything, however. Upsets are all
too frequent in the country's lead-
ing grid circuit, commonly called the
Big Nine.

Coach Bill Barclay revealed last
night that he had officially accepted
the post of head basketball coach at
Harvard University, and would leave
this Sunday morning for Cambridge
to take over his new duties.
Barclay, a member of the Michi-
gan coaching staff since 1942, re-
ceived an offer from the eastern
school last week, and rumors had
been numerous since last Saturday
that he would take the job. No defi-
nite affirmation had been released,
however, until last night.
Leaves Immediately
"I sent a night letter to William J.
Bingham (the Harvard athletic di-
rector) Wednesday night telling
them I would accept their offer. Since
basketball season is so near I am
planning to leave Ann Arbor Sunday
morning in order to get things under
way as soon as possible," he told
The Daily.
Barclay has held the position as
assistant basketball coach here at
Michigan since his 1942 arrival. It
has been his task to organize the
cagers initial practices and send
them through their important early-

Coached Big Nine Golf Champs
In addition to his basketball posi-
tion, Barclay was the Wolverines'
head golf coach. He replaced Ray
Courtright in this capacity in 1945,
and last spring his linksmen drove
their way to the Western Conference
championship. It was the only Big
Nine crown that a Michigan team
was able to bring home in the 1945-
46 collegiate year.
The Wolverine-trained coach ex-
pressed keen regret on leaving Mich-
igan. "I'm very sorry, of course, that
I have to leave Ann Arbor. But this
is one of those chances that come
once in a lifetime, and it's an excel-
lent opportunity to get ahead."
Eight Letter Winner
Bill Barclay's record at Michigan
is not confined to the coaching field.
During 1935-36-37 he won no less
than eight letters in three sports.
He took two in basketball, three in
football, and three more in golf. He
capped an excellent collegiate ath-

ship in 1939.
In recent years Barclay has been
associated more with golf and bas-
ketball than the gridiron sport, so
its probable that his many accom-
plishments with the pigskin have
been overlooked.
Shifts To Half-back
In his first year, 1935, Barclay was
assigned to the quarterback slot and
stayed there until the last half of his
senior year. For three weeks of that
season which the newspapers called
disastrous, he had remained unsung
and unused as a reserve quarter.
Then suddenly he was shifted to
half-back in time to lead the Wol-
verines to their first Big Ten victory
since 1935 by his brilliant pass de-
fensive play as Iowa went down, 7-0.
The very next-week-end, he was
a main factor in a nerve-wracking
7-6 triumph over Illinois. The new
half-back spiked an Illini drive with
an interception on the Wolverine 44.
From there he coupled with Fred
Trosko to stage the touchdown
march which won the ball game.
