Spartan Hopes Fade As'
Injuries Cripple Stars
Capacity Crowd Expected for 39th Game
With Odds Heavily Favoring Maize and Blue
By JACK MARTIN
East Lansing officials may be in a
dither over the possibilities or im-
possibilities of a gridiron meeting
between Michigan and Michigan
State next year, but it's tomorrow's
encounter that Fritz Crisler and his
Wolverines are concentrating on just
Odds Favor Michigan
With the thought that this 39th
engagement between the two state
rivals may be the last for a while, a
capacity crowd of 85,782 is expected
to jam into Michigan Stadium by
game time at 2:00 p.m.
The Maize and Blue, for the first
time this year, head into a game
with the betting odds definitely and
heavily in their favor. This situation
is intensified by the latest pro-
nouncements from the Spartan city,
which declare that Coach Charlie
Bachman has on hand the most
crippled team in his State career.
Half the State regular starting

backfield is on the hospital list. Russ
Reader, the Spartans' highly-touted
offensive howitzer well-known in
Ann Arbor circles, will be absent with
a knee injury, and fullback Steve
Sieradzki had a couple of bruised
ribs that put him on the doubtful
The line, too, has a first string
vacancy. Guard Ed Bagdon sustained
a shoulder injury in last Saturday's
rough clash with Kentucky which
trainers say will sideline him for the
rest of the 1946 season.
Bachman has three possibilities
for replacements to fill Reader's left
half spot.. Don Waldron, a 170-
pounder, is currently heading the
candidates, but both George Guerre,
or Horace Smith have a good chance
to get the starting nod. Frank Wat-
ers is scheduled to take over at full-
back for Sieradzki.
Wolverines in Good Condition
To fill the guard hole, the Spartan
coach has a wartime letter-winner
from Muskegon, Don Arnson. Amn-
son has understudied Bagdon all
year and should be able to carry on
with little pain or trouble.
The situation is a little more
cheery in the Wolverine encamp-
ment. Coach Crisler has practically
100 per cent healthy squad to throw
against the Lansing invaders. Only
John Lintol, a guard who suffered a
bruised back in the battle with the
Gophers last week-end, will be out

THOUGH THE TRADITIONAL meetings between the Wolverines of
Michigan and the Spartans of Michigan State have become rather one-
sided during the past eight years, this bitter rivalry between the two schools
is still regarded by Michigan sports enthusiasts as one of the most colorful
games of the season.
Gone are the ceremonies of the traditional battles between fresh-
men for the honor of wresting a maize and blue or a green and white
"beanie" from the head of an unsuspecting foe and gone, too, are the
midnight invasions of the opponent's campus. But still the yearly
Michigan-Michigan State battle maintains the feeling of "do or die"
for both schools.
It hasn't always been a bed of roses for the Wolverines as for four con-
secutive years a decade ago the Spartans rose up and crushed the Maize
and Blue. In 1934 State finally entered the win column after a drought
of 19 years. They had succeeded in tying the Wolverines twice during this
period, but in 1934 they finally won by a 16-0 score.
And for the next three years Michigan began to wonder what a
win over the Spartans was like. Michigan State smothered Michigan
from 1935 through 1938 by, scores of 25-6, 21-7 and 19-14.
The series started 'way back in 1898 when football was still in its
swadling clothes. Michigan took the first contest by a 39-0 count and
then after a lapse of three years the Spartans tried again only to be tram-
pled upon by one of Yost's greatest "point-a-minute" teams. This time the
score was almost two points a minute as the Wolverines scored a 119-0
IT WAS PRETTY discouraging to the Spartans, but in 1908 they gained
a moral victory by holding the mighty Michigan eleven to a 0-0 tie. And
finally, in 1913, State broke into the win column with a 12-7 victory. They
repeated again in 1915 as they scored a 24-0 triumph over the Wolverines
and the famous Johnny Maulbetsch.
Last year in the resumption of rivalries, Michigan's powerful gridders
crushed the Spartans, 40-0.
DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN
MSC Grid Date
Commenting on a report from East
Lansing that he had replied nega-
tively to a Michigan State proposal
agreeing to play Michigan on the
early September date next year pro-
viding a later date would be set in
future years, Prof. Ralph Aigler,
Wolverine Western Conference fac-
ulty representative, declared last
night that his reply indicated no
final official position.
Dean Lloyd C. Emmons, chairman
of the MSC Athletic Advisory Coun-
cil, met with Prof. Aigler here yes-
"Dean Emmons called on me,"
Prof. Aigler stated, "under 'he im-
pression that I was still in the offi-
cial capacity of Chairman of the
Board of Athletics, which I am not."
Dean Emmons told the Associated
Press in East Lansing yesterday,
"Aigler told me that it would be dif-
ficult, if not impossible, to give MSC
that assurance. He said that Michi-
gan had committments with Pitt and
Stanford and that neither of these
schools wanted to play at Ann Ar-
bor, in the season's opener, and I
told him that neither did Michigan
"That's as far as we got," he con-
tinued, "except that Aigler said that
the matter will have to be presented
to the Athletic Board.
"We've got the makings of a well-
balanced track squad with good
quality," Coach Ken Doherty said
yesterday as the track squad moved
indoors to continue practice.
Up until this week Coach Doherty
and his assistant Don Canham had
been putting the track aspirants
through their paces over the cross-
country course and on the outdoor
track at Ferry Field.
This year's squad boasts 20 thin-
clad letter-winners headed by such
Western Conference champions as
Herb Barton, who last year won the
indoor 880 and Chuck Birdsall, who
took last year's indoor two-mile run
and who in 1045 won the outdoor
two-mile at Champaign, and Jack
Martin, 220-low hurdle king of 1944.
Squad Weak in Sprinters
Coach Doherty stated though that
the squad is weak in sprinters,
broad-jumpers, and hurdlers and all
any men interested in trying for
these positions are urged to come
out. The team will continue to work
out daily at Yost Field House, and
the first time trials are scheduled for
Also returning to this year's squad
are Chuck Fonville, who smashed

Missing from the roster will be
such names as Ross andBob Hume,
the "dead heat" twins, Bob Thoma-
son, middle distance star, and Archie
Parsons, sensational half miler and

Kappa Si's Start
New Grid Classic
There'll be a "Little Michigan-
Michigan State" game tomorrow
when the Kappa Sigma fraternities
of the two campuses meet each other
on the gridiron.
This first meeting is hoped to pro-
vide an incentive to make this yearly
function between the two chapters,
and house presidents Bob Schulze of
Michigan and Dave Broderick of
State are working out plans for the
.game and the presentation of a tro-
phy at a party the same evening.
The miniature Spartans of Kappa
Sig will enter the game as favorites
on the strength of advance notices,
but the Wolverine team will be aim-
ing to start this series off on the
right foot with a win for Michigan.
All those interested in the po-
sition of student manager for the
Michigan basketball team should
report to Coach Ozzie Cowles at
the Yost Field House.
