Eight Ex-'M' Gridders
Among Badger Players
Wolverines Hold Fourteen-to-Four Margin
Over Wisconsin in Rivalry Begun in 1892

MADISON, Wis., Nov. 11-Michi-
gan football fans will find at least
eight familiar faces in the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin squad when the
Badgers take to the gridiron at Ann
Arbor Saturday afternoon, Nov. 16,
to battle the Wolverines in a West-
ern Conference game.
That's because those eight players
were members of the Michigan squad
in 1943 when, as Marine trainees,
they formed a major portion of a
group of 11 "Lend-lease" gridders
from Wisconsin's varsity and fresh-
man squads of the 1942 season.
Michigan Won 14
The players, who'll be regarding
this game with mixed emotions, are
Fred Negus, Farnham Johnson, Jack
Wink, Wally Dreyer, Earl Maves, Bob
Rennebohm, Henry Olshanski, and
John Gallagher. All saw consider-
able action with the Wolverines in
1943 and were instrumental in trim-
ming the Badgers that year, 27-0.
Wisconsin holds only four vic-
tories over Michigan in the all-time
series which first began in 1892, and
two of these wins were chalked up

Offensive Totals
NEW YORK, Nov. 12-WP)-Notre
Dame, held to 225 net yards in last
Saturday's scoreless affair with Ar-
my, has tumbled into a first place
deadlock with Boston College as the
Tst offensive minded college foot-
l team in the country, figures by
the National Collegiate Athletic Bur-
eau revealed today.
Prior to the "football game of the
century" in New York's Yankee stad-
ium, the South Bend Irish had piled
up an average of 430 yards per game
in each of their five contests.
But their. day's production against
the Cadets lowered their mean to
396.5 for six games, the identical fig-
ure built up by Coach Denny Myers'
Boston Eagles in the same number
of games.
It is the lowest ranking figure since
the pre-war season of 1941, and indi-
cates definitely that college football
again is back on an even keel. In 1944
Army romped to a national record on
total yardage per game and promptly
established a better one in 1945.
S.A.M. Wins Round
Robin Tournament
By downing Pi Lambda Phi, 19-0
Sunday morning, Sigma Alpha Mu's
nine-man touch football team copped
undisputed title to the fraternity
round-robin touch football champ-
ionship, a four-team tourney in
which Zeta-Beta Tau and Phi Sigma
Delta fraternities were the other two
participants.
Sigma Alpha Mu went through the
tournament without suffering a
single setback, downing Phi Sig 19-0
in its first contest and Z.B.T., 20-8
in the second round of play.
Outstanding players for S.A.M.
were captain George Gordon, Sid
Katzman, Ed Michaels, Bernie Meis-
lin, Lee Fisher, Mark Abend and
Harry Newblatt.

before the turn of the century. The
other triumphs were celebrated in
1928 and again in 1934. Michigan has
won 14 games while one other was
deadlocked.
Badgers Won in 1892
The Badgers' first win over the
Wolverines came on Nov. 4, 1892 at
Ann Arbor. John R. Richards, who
later coached Wisconsin, played in
the Badger backfield and set the
pace for a 34-18 decision.
After an interval of six years, Wis-
consin met the Wolverines in Chi-
cago on Thanksgiving Day before a
record turnout of 18,000 persons.
Captain Pat O'Dea, Keg Driver, and
Larson sparked the Badgers to a
17-5 victory.
Wisconsin then lost nine out of the
next 10 encounters, managing only
a tie (7-7) in 1921 to salvage any
consolation out of that dismal stretch
of 29 years. But in 1928, the Badgers,
playing in Ann Arbor, broke the spell
with a 7-0 victory. The game was won
in the last three minutes of play,
when Ernie Lusby intercepted Trus-
kowski's pass and raced back to the
Michigan 28. Then, with the clock
ticking off the last 60 seconds Sam-
my Behr faded back for a pass and
hit Bo Cuisinier on the Michigan 20.
The chunky "Bo" twisted away from
two tacklers and a block by Casey
cleared the path for a 20 yard touch-
down run. Augie Backus kicked the
goal and the game ended soon after-
wards.
Wisconsin Won in 1934
Wisconsin's other victory came in
1934, the Badgers winning by a 10-0
margin. Lynne Jordan scored the
touchdown, racing 99 yards from the
kickoff. Mario Pacetti placekicked
the extra point and later booted a
35 yard field goal.
One of the battles which is re-
membered with some emotion, was
the 1923 tussle when Tod Rockwell

"M" Club at 7:15 tonight in the
Michigan Union (see bulletin
board for room number). All M-
men on campus who have not yet

cordially invited.,
raced to a Michigan touchdown late
in the game at Camp Randall to beat
the Badgers 6-3. As the argument
went, Rockwell had been tackled and
went down, but he got up and raced
away to score.
The all-time scores:

1892,6-10; 1893,34-18; 1899,17-

Bierman Still In
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 11-)-
Bernie Bierman, head football coach
at Minnesota, today said he knew
nothing of rumors that he would be-
come coach of the Chicago Rockets
of the All-America Conference or
any other professional team.
"I know nothing of these reports,"
Bierman said. "I don't know where
they come from."

T ouch Football,
peedball Titles
Settled Tonight
Bands Will Entertain;
Skits To Be Presented
By BEV BUSSEY .
Accompanied by all the fanfare
and trimmings of the varsity game,
the Intramural doubleheader for the
residence halls touch football and the
fraternity speedball crowns will take
place at Wines Field tonight with the
Kappa Sigs and Sigma Chi tearing
the lid off the proceedings at 7:30.
In addition to the two games,
bands from Lloyd and Greene House
will be on hand to entertain at vari-
ous intervals, while the Sigma Chi
brothers have planned skits to be
staged in between games. Supporters
of the squads should sit in the sec-
tions behind them in order to be able
to follow the cheers that a few of the
ambitious leaders have cooked up.
Although this is the twenty first
speedball championship at Michi-
gan, it is a comparatively new sport
nationally. It originated right here
on campus. For those who have
never witnessed a speedball con-
test, this is their chance to see the
game at its best for according to
the captains, the Kappa Sigs and
Sigma Chis each intend to give the
other a terrific shellacking in or-
der to carry the coveted cup home
to their trophy room.
Throughout the season Jim Hesler
supplied the scoring punch for the
Kappa Sigs with captain Dave Dunk-
le coming in a close second. Partially
responsible for their undefeated sea-
son was a strong defensive unit led
by Warren Boyee, Bill Silverberg,
and Roy McAllister.
One of the most prominent fra-
ternities in the sports scene, Sigma
Chi has annexed the speedball title
twice before. Moe Hill, the top scor-
er, will play a large role in the State
Street fraternity's attempt to regain
it, while Cliff Myll and captain Bill
Courtright, NCAA wrestling champ-
ion and varsity letter winner, form
the nucleus of a tight defense.
The nightcap finds Lloyd House
opposing Greene House at 8:30.
Nine players on the East Quad
team won varsity numerals for
football in high school. Captain
Leroy Daggs, who holds down one
of the wingback spots, is the fast-
est man on the field and once he
gets started, it is difficult for any-
one to catch him. Hank Bushman
from Grand Rapids South, Bud
Nees at quarterback, and fullback
Bob Baker round out the Greene
House backfield.
Upholding the honor of the West
Quad, Lloyd House will start an all
veteran aggregation. They operate
mainly from a T formation with
the ball being handled most of the
time by Al Pappas who can pass or
carry the pigskin with equal ability.
The keyman in the backfield is quar-
terback Ray Lantos who calls signals
and directs the plays by giving the
ball either to Pappas, Bob Weber, or
Warren Hildner. Conversions after
touchdowns are quite ably taken
care of by Chuck Campbell, the Lloyd
House version of Jim Brieske.

To Be Official
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Nov. 12-OP)--
The 1946 football championship of
the Western Conference will be de-
cided on a percentage basis with ties
counting a half game won and a half
game lost, Prof. Frank Richart of
Illinois, secretary of the conference
faculty committee explained today.
Because the conference race still
is closely contested with Illinois,
Michigan, Ohio State, Indiana and
Iowa all having mathematical title
chances, Richart said he was asked
to clarify a new conference rule on
determining the champion.
In previous years, the Conference'
did not name a champion officially
and "newspaper" ratings arbitrarily
threw out ties in adjudging the title-
winner.
With Illinois, Michigan and Ohio
State each scheduled to play two
games and Indiana and Iowa one, the
standings are :

Illinois
Michigan
Ohjo State
Iowa
Indiana
Northwestern
Wisconsin
Minnesota
Purdue
