Pritula in Wolverine LineF
After Three Year Absence


Bill' Pritula is a good tackle by
anybody's standards, but more than
any laurels he has received for his
football prowess, he appreciate most
his membership in TLETGITVA.
TLETGITVA, Exclusive Club
TLETGITVA is a very exclusive
society of which the full name is
"Those Lucky Enough to Get in the
Veterans Apartments." All vets who
hope to be members themselves will
be glad to know that Bill is loud in
his praise of the apartments in Uni-
versity Terrace.
Says Bill, "A fellow is three-hun-
dred per cent better off here than
he is any other place in town." The
only drawback in Bill's opinion is
that his even six foot frame touches
both the head and the foot of the
bed without any stretching on his
In Army Engineers
One of the reasons Bill has been
getting through the heavier lines
that the Wolverines have been facing
almost every Saturday this season is
that he is wel accustomed to handl-
ing heavy equipment. The greater,
part of his three years in the Army
was spent with the heavy equipment
branch of the Army engineers.
Before pulling on his Army boots
Bill played two seasons of varsity
football. The last of these was in

1942, the year of the famed "Seven
Oak Posts." In that year when sub-
stitution sometimes numbered four
instead of forty-four as they do this
season, Bill played an average of
fifty-seven minutes a game. On three
week-ends he "went the route" with
sixty minutes of grueling action.
Pritula Switches To Tackle .
That record is all the more re-
markable because the season before
Bill was a center and had the mis-
fortune to play behind burly Bob In-
galls and Ted Kennedy. Four of the
five leading 1941 tackles, including
Rube Kelto, the team's most val-
uable player, graduated before the
next season; so Crisler gave Pritula
a chance at the birth. His selection
on the 1942 all-Conference team
shows how well he did.
When you speak to Bill about the
"thrill" of his athletic career he'll tell
of the Notre Dame game of 1942
which the Wolverines won, 32 to 20.
Though no one play or player of
that game stands out in Bill's mind,
he says it was just a case of the
whole team being "on." In Bill's
words, "Everybody was just sharp."
If the conference eligibility rules
tighten up soon as expected this
will be Bill's last season. His ab-
sence next fall will take Crisler right
back to the fall of 1942 and the prob-
lem of replacing a great tackle.

MEETS OLD MATES-Paul White was captain of the 1943 Wolverines
which had eight men who will appear against Michigan today. Also
on the Maize and ,Blue squad were Hal Watts, Captain Art Renner and
Bob Wiese.

Wally Weber
Expounds on
B Team Tilt
Little Wolverines Face
Badger Jayvees Today
Conversation with Coach Wally
"What do you think of that Wis-
consin B" Team which is going to
face the Wolverine Jayvees at 10:30
a.m. today on Ferry Field?"
A.-'They've lost two games this
year, so they will be mad, unques-
tionably fighting mad for this game."
Q.-"Do you think this fighting
spirit will give them a victory to-
day?" '
A.-"We are unalterably opposed to
any such scheme."
Q.-"Is the Wolverine team ready
for the game?"
A.-"We have worked diligently this
week. I come down to practice in a
Ford and go home in a frenzy."
Q.-"Would you deign to predict the
outcome of said struggle?" (The con-
versation is catching.)
A.-"I will naturally be most satis-
fied with a 2-0 victory." (A safety,,
in monosyllabic words.")
Q.-"Are there any changes in the
line-up of the Maize and Blue?"
A.-"At the present moment, you
may say that the same reliables will
engage the Badgers at the outset of
the contest."
Thus in the language of the "B"
team coach, here is the starting line-
up for the Maize and Blue:
At the ends, we have those stellar
defenders of the flanks, a pair of
pass-catching demons, Irv Wisniew-
ski and Frank Keiser.
A couple of bone-crushing behe-
moths, Pete LaBenda and Johnny
Eizones (the six feet-two inch, 230-
pound midget) will handle the
tackle assignments.
The guard position will be pro-
tected by Hal Raymond and Elmer
Phillips, two pint-size masters of the
art of rock-em-and-sock-em.
At the pivot post, Walt Keeler will
hold forth in his usual gracious and
inimitable style.
In the backfield, a quartet of gal-
loping gazelles, peerless passers, and
bloodthirsty blockers, will cavort.
They are Chuck Lentz at left half-
back, Jim Holgate at right half,
Johnny Ghindia at the quarterback
slot, and Mike Yedinak at fullback.

only after a thriller which saw the
Wisconsin lads win out, 24-20. Last
Saturday Iowa thumped Stuhldrey-
er's charges, 21-7.
Maves Stars in Backfiield
Powered by ex-Michgian back,
Earl Maves, the Badgers backfield
corps has rolled along the ground for
a better than four-yards per rush-
ing attempt this fall. Maves is the
leading ground-gainer with 437 yards
on 70 carries for a 6.24 average per
trip. The ex-Wolverine will probably
draw the nod at fullback for Stuhl-
dreye's men.
Supplementing Maves will be two
other backs who played for Crisler's
Wolverines of 1943, Jack Wink and
Wally Dreyer. Wink calls signals for
the Badgers and also does some of
the passing. He has completed 'three
of 14 tosses, one for a touchdown.
Dreyer, who is slated to stbrt at left
half, is the Cardinals' third leading
ground-gainer with 231 yards for 68
tries and a 3.39 mark per try.
Self Starts at Half
The right-halfback starting spot
will probably go to Clarence Self who
alternates with Don Kindt at that
position. Also scheduled to see plenty
of action against Michigan is Ben
Bendrick, 198-pound understudy for
Maves at the fullback post. Ben-
drick is the second leading ground
gainer for Stuhldreyer's crew with

272 yards on 54 attempts for an
average of 5.04 yards per carry.
Up front the Badgers will probably
start a trio of ex-Wolverine linemen,
center Fred Negus, guard Johnny
Gallagher and end Farnham John-
son. In 1942 Negus was chosen as
all-Conference center for the Cardi-
nals. All three men played on Michi-
gan's Big Nine championship squad
of 1943. There'll also be another pair
of ex-Michiganders with Wisconsin
in ends Hank Olshanski' and Bob
Wolverine Line Outweighed
Again the Wolverine forward wall
will be outweighed. Averaging about
195 pounds per man the Badgers will
take the field with around an eight-
pound advantage up front. However,
the right side of the Wisconsin line
with Gallagher, 180, at guard, Clar-
ence. Esser, 174, at tackle, and Dale
Bowers 190 at end will concede some
three pounds to the Maize and Blue

By The Asseeiated Press
CHICAGO, Nov. 15-Under Rose
Bowl pressure, the Big Nine's foot-
ball forces swing into semi-fial
competition tomorrow with the
Champaign, Ill., skirmish between
first-place Illinois and third-place
Ohio State occupying the spotlight.
Wisconsin's invasion of Michigan
and Iowa's visit to Minnesota also
have title significance, but the Illini-
Buckeye brawl before an expected
62,000 apparently holds the key to
the scrambled conference race.
Northwestern travels to South
Bend for its 26th clash with un-
beaten but once-tied Notre Dame
in the Midwest's top non-league
contest. Purdue and Indiana have
open dates, marking time for their
Old Oaken Bucket clash a week
Formal announcement at Cham-
paigh. Thursday by Prof. Frank
Richart of the Big Nine faculty
committee that the conference had
voted for a Rose Bowl tie-up fanned
interest in the wide-open title chase
to white-hot heat.
Not only Illinois, Ohio State and
Michigan, but also Iowa and Indiana,
tied for fourth, have championship
chances since the winner this year
will be determined on a percentage
basis with ties figuring a half a vic-
tory and half a defeat.
For instance, a Rose Bowl selec-
tion well may rest between Iowa
and Indiana as co-titlists, IF Ill-
inois lost to Ohio State and North-
western; Ohio State defeated Illi-
nois but lost to Michigan; Michi-
gan succumbed to Wisconsin and
defeated Ohio State; and Indiana
and Iowa won their one remaining
In that case, Iowa and Indiana
would have identical percentages of
.667, followed by Michigan with .643;
Ohio State with .583; and Illinois
with .571.
The Champaign tilt finds hale and
hearty Illinois, in its best physical
shape of the season, slightly favored
over Ohio State although the Buck-
eyes won their last two conference
starts with 39-point attacks.

The Bucks lost some prestige
last Saturday when they had to
turn on the pressure to salvage a
20-13 decision over Pittsburgh
which earlier this season was vic-
timized by Illinois, 33-7. Besides,
Ohio has lost halfback Jerry Krall,
offensive hero of run-away tri-
urnphs over Minnesota and North-
Illini partisans are hopeful Buddy
Young, long overdue in fulfilling pre-
season press notices, will cut loose
against the Buckeyes. A two week
rest--Illinois had an open date last
Saturday - may have given the
speedy Negro back enough time to
shake off leg miseries which have
harrassed him all season.
Unless Wisconsin shows a start-
ling reversal of form, potent Michi-
gan should be able to call its shots
against the Badgers. While Wiscon-
sin took a 21-7 lacing from. Iowa
last week, Michigan displayed de-
vastating power in crushing Michi-
gan State, 55-7.
