Wolverines Physically




Eleven Saturday


Michigan Escapes Jinx
As Injury List Dwindles
Chappuis, Soboleski Return to Lineup;
Dom Tomasi Ready for Starting Position

When Michigan's 1947 pigskin
squad tackles Pittsburgh here Sat-
urday in its final non-conference
test, they will be in their finest
physical shape of the year, ac-
cording to Jim Hunt, head Wol-
verine trainer.
Hunt beamed as he cavorted
around Ferry Field at yester-
day's practice. In his mind, he
was happily erasing names from
the Wolverine injury list'. - -
Tomasi... Mann ... Brieske...
"The boys ought to be in 100 per
cent physical condition for Sat-
arday's game," he stated.
Although Bob Chappuis was out
>f uniform yesterday because of a
slight ankle injury received in
Monday's practice, Hunt indicated
that Michigan's leading offensive
star of 1946 would be in tip-top
shape for today's workout. "It was
best to give Bob the day of rest,"
explained Hunt.
Fritz Crisler tested his de-
fensive team against a series of
Pittsburgh plays "executed" by
Ciethaml's jayvee squad yester-
day. Ciethaml scouted the Pan-
ther's 40-6 defeat at the hands
of powerful Notre Dame Satur-
The Pitt first helm showing

against the Irish indicated a
strong and steadily improving
line, one that is big enough and
active enough to cause trouble for
any time. In the season's opener.
the Panthers fell to Illinois, 14-0.
Saturday's game will be the
second between the two institu-
tions. . The first contest, in 1941,
resulted in a 40-0 triumph for
Michigan with such players as
All-American Bob W e s t f a 11,
quarterback George Ciethaml,
and tackles Albert Wistert and
Merv Pregulman leading the
Wolverine attack. Incidentally,
Wistert is a brother of Alvin
Wistert, present member of the
Wolverines at the same position.
The 1941 game produced a sec-
ond-half scoring burst of five
touchdowns, in definite contrast
to the 1947 Wolverines showing
against Stanford last week. A
week ago, the Wolverines piled
up four touchdown in eight minu-
tes and 33 seconds. In the second
half Michigan scored once while
Stanford racked up its 13 points.
Crisler is expected to continue
his liberal use of players against
Pittsburgh. Against Michigan
State and Stanford, the Wolverin-
es used 81 men, 41 against Michi-
gan State and 40 against Stan-

Jayvees Sharpen Offense in Preparation

The B squad pushed a couple
more hours of rough scrimmage
into the past this afternoon in
preparation for tomorrow's game

engage in a long scrimmage
with a similar emphasis on of-
Long gains and tentative touch-
downs were numerous, but the de-
fensive squad also had its say as
ht eline tossed the runners on oc-
casion before they got back to the
scrimmage attack.
Perfection of ball-handling
technique was stressed to pre-
vent a repetition'of the back-
field miscues which cost the
Wolverine squad several scoring
opportunities in Saturday's con-
test with Grand Rapids. Assist-
ant Coach Gib Holgate stressed
the fact that the Wolverine
gridders have had little chance
to develop their offense until
now since their main duties
have been to work defensively
against the varsity.
Since several of the Michigan
State varsity players have been
excluded from the trip to Wash-
ington, they probably will bol-
ster State's jayvee squad in its
appearance here.

NEW YORK, Oct. 8-Notre
Dame, Michigan and Texas are
the big three in college football at
this early stage of the 1947 cam-
paign in the opinion of more than
a hundred sports writers who vot-
ed today in the first Associated
Press poll of the season to select
the top ten teams.
Although both Michigan and
Texas sport more impressive re-
cords than Notre' Dame, the ex-
perts placed Coach Frank Leahy's
Fighting Irish at the top of the
list on the strength of their 40-6
triumph over Pittsburgh in their
only performance to date.
Michigan, which crushed Stan-
ford, 49-13, after swamping Michi-
gan State in its opener, was
awarded the No. 2 spot. The
Wolverines, who finished sixth in
the final poll last year, were pick-
ed first on 29 ballots and second
on 46 others to amass a total of
857 points.
Texas, the No. 1 team in the
first poll a year ago but 15th at
the end of the season, landed the
third position by humbling North
Carolina, 34-0, for its third
straight one-sided triumph.
Georgia Tech, unbeaten and un-
scored on in two starts, was nam-
ed No. 4, barely nosing out Army,
which boasts a similar record, 542
points to 533.

The inter-fraternity track and
field meet will be held this after-
noon at 4:15. Chi Psi, defending
champion, will be strong again
this year with Beta Theta Pi, Sig-
ma Chi, and Phi Delta Theta
looming as leading contenders.
The Independent League foot-
ball season will open this Friday.
The Goosers, last fall's champions,
are expected to reign as favorites
again this season.
