WHAT WITH A WAR, all building materials are on the scarce
side, all but football team building materials, that is. You're not
supposed to be able to fit square pegs into round holes, but in build-
ing this current title contender, Coach Fritz Crisler has been fitting
halfback-sized footballers into fullback sized holes, ends have been
plugging up tackle gaps, in short if he had a hole he'd find a man
to fill it with somewhere.
Back in 1945, Jack Weisenburger was in a slugging match
for the first string tailback assignment with Pete Elliott and
Wally Teninga. Danny Dworsky was slated to hold down the
fullback post. *
Before the second game, 175-pound Weisenburger suddenly ap-
peared as a fullback and he's been one ever since, making up in
quickness and knowledge of the intricacies of the spinner all he
lacks in weight.
PETE ELLIOTT and Brother Bump both 'reported to Crisler as
tailbacks, but a couple of guys named Bob Chappuis and Gene
Derricotte had prior claims. So, ever since last season, Pete has been
breathing down Howard Yerges neck for the first string quarterback
Job and Bump bids fair to become the fanciest wingback in Michigan
And Danny Dworsky who never quite learned to start quick
enough to take advantage of his tremendous drive, developed in
another direction. In the last two seasons he has moved up to
rate as one of the best line-backers in Conference circles and
this season he has learned the pivot duties so well that he shares
the spot with another convert, J. T. White.
C^PTAIN BRUCE HILKENE came out of the army a year ago with
an entire campaign at end behind him, but when he reported
for duty there was a whole football team full of ends out there ahead
of him. With All-American, to be, Elmer Madar, Len Ford, Ed Mc-
Neil, Dick Rifenburg, Don Hershberger, and Bob Mann all battling
or the flanking spots, Hilkene slid over into a regular tackle job.
Crisler's system operates on the premise that a good football
player can always fit in. If he's fast enough, smart enough, and
takes coaching well enough, he can play about anywhere.
And Stanford back, Aubrey Devine will verify it for you, at least
where Bob Mann is concerned.
After Saturday's game, Devine told Hilkene, "You know for
two weeks we've had our fastest back imitating Bob Mann. For
two weeks I chased that guy all over the State of California working
on pass defense. I come all the way across the country and on the
second play of the game, Mann gets away from me and catches a

According to Head Coach Cliff
Keen, who is on the Olympic

part of the country for many
years. Illinois, defending cham-

Under clear skies and a brisk
wind, the Michigan Sailing Club
stole the victory in the Associa-
tion Meet held Saturday and Sun-
day on Whitmore Lake, from un-
der the noses of the wildpats of
Northwestern, 591/2 to 573/4.
The Wolverines captured first
and second place in the final
event of the meet to snatch vic-
tory in the meet. Denison, the
only other school participating in
the meet finished third with a
total of 461'/2 points.
Michigan State, Bradley and
Youngstown were expected but did
not appear for the races.
Whitmore Lake will again be
the scene for another meet sched-
uled for this Saturday and Sun-
day. It will be for the Midwest
College Sailing Association mem-
bers and will include the Mich-
igan Sailing Club with Michigan
State, Northwestern, Denison Uni-
versity and Youngstown College
making the journey to Ann Ar-
bor for the meet.

his mouth as well as his hands as an unidentified Wolverine

Assistant Coach Gib Holgate
stated that the boys had not yet
sufficiently worked together as a

they just didn't have it. He went
on to explain that the Jayvees had
been used mostly on defense in
scrimmages against the varsity

to master the plays and get their
