Spartans Hindered By
Injuries In Annual Tilt
Capacity Crowd Expected To See Wolverines
Seek Seventh Straight Over Traditional Rival
Boston College, Mississippi State,
Cincinnati and Kentucky all hold
decisions over Bachman's men. The
Spartans have beaten Wayne and
Penn State. Last Saturday Kentucky
gave the East Lansing lads a pretty

still questionable whether they have
The Spartans' much - publicized
pass-flinging tailback, Russ Reader,

At Home Today
Wally Weber's 'B' Team will at-
tempt to make its week old 26-6
shellacking of Michigan State's Jay-
vees stick when the two teams meet
again this morning at 10:30 a.m,. on
Michigan's Jayvees marred a per-
fect State record last week and the
boys from Lansing are spoiling for
revenge. The Webermen turned in
an outstanding performance in their
first road game of the campaign,
rolling up two first period scores to
settle the issue.
The Wolverines will probably stick
to the same lineup that started in
the first Spartan contest: Irv Wis-
niewski and Frank Keiser at ends,
Johnny Eizones and Pete LaBenda
at tackles, Elmer Phillips and Hal
Raymond at guards, Walt Keeler at
center. In the backfield Bill Ghindia
or Lou Brunsting will start at quar-
ter with Chuck Lentz and Don Kuick
at the halves and Mike Yedinak at

speed. His passing, kicking and
running sparked the Spartans to a
19-16 triumph over previously un-
beaten Penn State in State's best
showing of the season to date.
Injuries have hit the Spartans
pretty hard this fall. Steve Sierad-
ski, State's No. 1 fullback, was back
in uniform this week but it is doubt-
full if he'll be able to play. Guard
Ed Bagdon is also on the inactive
list and did not even make the trip
Michigan Line Outweighed
Filling out the Spartans' starting
backfield will be Russ Gilpin at
quarter; Lynn Chandnois at right
half; and Frank Waters at full. Don
Waldron may start at left half hi
place of Guerre or Reader.
Built around a quartet of letter-
men Michigan State's line will out-
weigh the Wolverine forwards by
something like 10 pounds per man.
The Spartan starters average 198
pounds. The four experienced State
letter-winners are end Ken Balge,
tackle Alger Connor and guards Don
LeClair and Don Arnson.
Michigan in Top Shape
Conner is the heaviest man in the
Spartan line at 208. Rounding out

Conference officials, who by that
time may be extending blessing to
a league Rose Bowl representative,
will hold their annual winter meet-
ing here Dec,12-14, commissioner K.
L. (Tug) Wilson announced today.
The Big Nine already has given
unofficial approval to a proposal for
a five-year Rose Bowl tie-up, start-
ing this New Year's Day. Formal
announcement of the first Pasa-
dena trek by a Western Conference
team in 26 years is expected mo-
Because the snarled Big Nine race
is expected to keep a champion in
doubt right down to the finish, for-
mal approval of a Bowl represen-
tative probably will be delayed until
well after the Nov. 23 closing round.
Illinois, Ohio State, Michigan,
Northwestern, and even Wisconsin,
Indiana and Iowa, tied for fifth
place, still rate as title possibilities.
WOLVERINE FULLBACK - Jack
Weisenberger will be a key man
in Michigan's offense when the
Wolverines meet the Spartans at
Michigan Stadium this afternoon.
Team Runs at
Finish Far in Front
As part of their pre-season cross-
country practice, Michigan's 32-man
track squad dropped in on Michigan
Normal in Ypsilanti yesterday for a
three and one half mile hill-and-dale
jaunt over a wet, soggy course in
which no score was kept.
Dave Williams, a Wolverine stand-
out in practice sessions so far, fin-
ished the long grind first. The trans-.
fer from Georgetown University hit
the tape in 18:34.
Don Queller, a Maize and Blue
transfer from Indiana, was second,
and Herb Barten, Conference 880-
yard champion last year from Michi-
gan, took third.
NormalI's first man to the finish
line took fourth, with other Ypsi-
lanti harriers finishing eighth, ninth,
15th, and 19th. Other Wolverine
placers were Alex Morris, fifth; Dean
Voegtlen, sixth; Chuck Birdsall, sev-
enth; and Don Mettler, 10th.
Coach Ken Doherty of the Maize
and Blue, termed the practice run
"a vast improvement over anything
to date," and singled out the per-
formances of Barten, Morris, and
Mettler, as "especially encouraging."
The final outing of the pre-season
cross-country practice will take place
next Wednesday, when six seven-
man varsity teams compete against
each other at Ferry Field in another
hill and dale grind. Medals and cer-
tificates will be awarded to the win-
Coach Ken Doherty regards cross-
country running as one of the best
methods of conditioning trackmen
for both the indoor and outdoor
Big Nie Card
Gophers Meet Purdue;
Iowa, Wisconsin Play
CHICAGO, Nov. 8-(AP-The Big
Nine's best offensive team, and
strongest defensive club will collide
tomorrow as Northwestern and de-
fending champion Indiana battle to
remain title contenders before 40,000
at Dyche Stadium in Evanston.
The Wildcat-Hoosier clash tops a
three-game Conference card which
also send Iowa to Wisconsin for a
showdown of .500 performers and
Purdue to Minnesota for a struggle
to elude the league cellar.
Illinois, current pace-setter is
idle, resting for its decisive battle
with Ohio State a week from
Saturday. The vastly improved
Buckeyes get an expected breath-
er against Pittsburgh at Colum-
Northwestern, paced by power
runners Vic Schwall, Frank Aschen-
brenner and Art Murakowski who
have"sparked the Wildcats to a
league-leading rushing average of
5.3 yards per sally, must cope with a
Hoosier defense which has yielded
only 163.5 yards per game rushing
to four league foes.
Each team needs a victory to keep
its title hopes alive. A Northwestern
win will hoist the Wildcats into a
second-place tie with Michigan, each
with three wins, a defeat and a tie.
The Hoosiers, breaking even in
four league starts, have a feeble
championship chance. Wins over
Northwestern and Purdue will
give Indiana a final 4-2 record,
but this will be out of the money
unless Illinois, Michigan and Ohio
State do some fancy throat-cut-
ting in the final two rounds of
Like Indiana, both Iowa and Wis-
consin carry 2-2 records into their
meeting at Madison, but the Badg-
ers with a seven-game Conference
schedule, compared with six each for
Iowa and Indiana, can become a
stronger title threat with a triumph.
Should the Badgers hurdle the
Hawkeyes, who will be minus in-
jured fullback Dick Hoerner, they
might menace Michigan in their
Nov. 16 invasion of Ann Arbor and
