By CLARK BAKER
Bruce Hilkene, a stalwart at
tackle for Michigan this fall, was
elected captain of the 1947 Wol-
verine football team yesterday
afternoon. In the same election
left halfback Bob Chappuis was
chosen as Michigan's "most valu-
able player of the year."
Yesterday's selection by his
teamnmates marks the second time
that Hilkene has been named
Wolverine football captain. Back
in 1944 at the close of the season
the 193-pound lineman was elect-
ed team captain for 1945 but Hil-

NEW YORK, Dec. 3- ( -
Michael S. (Uncle Mike) Jacobs,
66-year-old boxing promotor who
controls the services of virtually
every championship fighter from
Joe .Louis down to the lightweight
divisions, collapsed in a Broad-
way office today and was taken
to St. Clair Hospital.
Dr. Vincent Nardiello, Twenti-
eth Century Sporting Club Physi-
cian and Dr. Peter Croce of the
St. Clair staff after a consultation
announced Jacobs had suffered a
"At the moment, his condition
is quite serious," Dr. Nardiello
was transferred from Michigan
before he could take over.
Scored Two Points
Returning this fall Hilkene was
immediately shifted from end, his
position in 1944, to tackle to help
plug the Wolverine weakness at
that position. The big tackle be-
came one of the mainstays in
Fritz Ciisler's powerful line. In
the Illinois game he broke through
to block Dike Eddleman's at-
tempted punt from the end zone
for a Michigan safety.-
Chappuis also completed his
second season of varsity ball for
the Maize and Blue. Understudy'
to tailback Tom, Kuzma in 1942,
Chappuis was chiefly noted for
his passing. Returning this fall
after three years in the Army Air
Forces the 180-pound back dis-
played aipair of hard driving legs
in addition to his old passing
Powering through opposing
lines for 531 yards on the ground
and hitting 44 receivers in 78 at-
tempts, for 734 yards via the air,
Chappuis was the Wolverines'
main offensive weapon. Hit total
Big Nine yardage of 1038 topped
Otto Graham's Conference record
of 1942 by some 176 yards.
Both Hilkene and Chappuis are
expected to be around next year
so Michigan opponents in 1947 can
look forward to another trouble-

Whether the National and Am-

peared a slight possibility.
Coast Renews Request
Coast Loop directors, renewing
a request made a year ago, were
prepared to press for action.They
passed a resolution yesterday for
presentation to the heads of the
two big leagues.
Parity is sought by the present
triple "A" league in an effort to
eliminate the draft by which
many of its star hired hands are

Bramham May Retire
Opinions on this matter were at
variance, however. The general
sentiment indicated the belief the
Coast Loop eventually will be-
come a third major league-with-
in the next ten years. Doubt was
expressed the time is ripe now.
Speculation also centered on the
anticipated retirement of W. O.
Bramham, president, of the na-
tional association of professional
baseball leagues. Not yet officially
announced, Bramham's decision
to vacate the post he has held
since 1932 was looked for momen-
tarily. He was honored at a testi-
monial dinner tonight.
While not publicly a candidate
for the important position, George
Trautman, executive vice-presi-
dent of the Detroit Tigers, gener-
ally was conceded to have the in-
side track. He has the announced
support of the American Associa-

connections probably would influ-
ence the vote of many other minor

NEW YORK, Dec. 3-PA)-
Turning their backs on Army for
the first time in three years,
sports writers across the nation
picked Notre Dame today as the
outstanding college football team
Army's narrow squeak against
Navy last Saturday while Notre
Dame was mastering Southern
California contributed heavily to
the final decision of 184 experts
who participated in the Associated
Press' last poll of the year, mak-
ing the vote the heaviest in the
history of the weekly balloting.
Texas Started Well
It ended the long reign of the

both 1944 and 1945.

Texas started off in first place
this year, but Army took over the
following week and held the top
spot until today, with Notre Dame
always a close second.
Irish, Army Tie
The Irish, who played a score-
less tie with Army this season to
put the only blot on Army's three-
year record covering 28 games,
compiled 1,73012 points in the
final ballot to Army's 1,659/2 on
the usual basis of ten points for
a first-place vote, nine for sec-
ond, and so on.
But exactly 100 of the writers
named Notre Dame as the No. 1
team, while Army drew 48 first
place votes. Nine experts called
it a tie between the two.
Illinois, with a record of seven
victories and two defeats, was
licked as the No. 5 team, followed
