State Rolls to 13-0 Triumph
As Wolverines Fail to Score

Unable to provide that spark
needed for a scoring drive, Mich-
igan's jayvee gridders went down
to a 13-0 defeat at the hands of
Michigan State yesterday on the
Ferry Field gridiron.
The Wolverines threatened con-
stantly and twice had golden op-
portunities within the State 10
yard line, but they couldn't push
the ball across the double stripe.
State capitalized on a 46 yard
run by Marty Kelly and an inter-
cepted pass by John Restby to
clinch the game.
Rough Play
Marred by rough play the con-
test was far from exciting, with
the junior Spartans being penal-
ized over 115 yards for everything
from offside to four unnecessary
roughness penalties.
State got its attack going after
a Wolverine thrust had bogged
down, as they began to move late
in the first quarter. Kelly dashed
around right end and from his
own 40 to the Wolverine 14 be-
fore Al Noble pulled him down.
After two plays failed, Bob
Swet tossed a pass to ex-Varsity-
man Russ Gilpin on the 4. The
Wolverine line led by Bob Mar-
shall and Al Fitch held for two
more plays and the quarter ended.
Coach John Kobs then sent in
Restby who scooted off tackle for
three yards and the game's first
score. Kritzer's kick was square-
ly through the uprights and Stat'i
led by a 7-0 count.
Pass Interception
An intercepted pass got Michi-
gan off on another drive that
bogged down on the Spartans 10,
and just before the half ended
Dave Gomberg slid through to re-
cover a fumble by Bud"Crane on
the MSC 25.
After the Wolverines were un-
able to gain at the start of the
second half Jim Morrish tried a
pass on tle Michigan 20 and Rest-
by snared the ball on the 36. Jim
Bolthouse tore off 18 yards to the
Michigan 18 and then Bob Kritzer
lofted a pass to Gilpin who took
the pass away from two Wolver-
ines for the second score. Kritz-
er's kick was poor and off to the
The battle see-sawed back and
forth from then on with the Wol-
verines trying to put together
enough potent plays to present a
scoring threat. State got started
again about five minutes before
the final whistle. Crane intercept-
ed a Norm Jackson aerial on the
Wolverines 45 and got all the
way to the seven before he was
Wolverines Halt Drive
The Wolverines pushed their
opponents back' to the 14 and a
field goal attempt went awry as
the Jayvees took over on the 20.

the game that his line played very
well during most of the contest
and said that he'll be on the look-

He especially cited the play of
John Linville and said that Lin-

Coach Cliff Keen fielded a "Blue"

At least two outstanding
backs were uncovered in Char-

Ketterer grabbed the first punt
and raced 78 yards to a touch-
down, set up another score with
a 45 yard punt return and kicked
two extra points.
,Wicks was easily the best run-
ner on the field all day, and
pound for pound looks like one

Because of acute air sickness,
which affected many of his men
on the flight west, Coach Biggie
Munn dropped quarteback Gene
Glick from the starting lineup.

EVANSTON, Ill. - Northwest-
ern's chances of dumping Minne-
sota from the nation's undefeated
ranks, will depend on the ability
of Coach Bob Voigts to find suit-
able substitutes for Alex Sarkisian,
the Wildcats' great center who is
out with a broken arm, and Richey
Graham, first string fullback who
is also on the injured list.
Ed Price will replace Sarkisian
in the center's slot, while two cap-
able fullbacks will vie for Gra-
ham's position.
The No. 1 replacement is Gas-
per Perricone, 200 pound sopho-
more, who boasts the team's best
ground gaining average, having
gained 62 yards in eight tries for
a 7.7 yards average.
Ralph Everist, last year's regu-
lar fullback, made his 1947 debut
last Saturday and picked up 13
yards in three carries for a 4.1
yards average.
At the halfback spots the Wild-
cats have a quartet of hard run-
ning backs in Frank Aschenbren-
ner, Art Murakowski, Tom Worth-
ington and Jules Siegle. Up until
the U.C.L.A. game the latter was
a fourth-string left half but his
performance in catching the win-
ning touchdown pass in that game
moves him up in the rankings.

IOWA CITY, Ia., Oct. 10 (AP)
-Iowa, disappointing in defeats
by UCLA and Illinois, and Indiana
chagrined by a 7-7 tie with Wis-
consin, each hope for better things
in their Western Conference foot-
ball clash tomorrow.
It is the Homecoming game for
the Hawks and a crowd of around
50,000 will be in the stadium.
Indiana's two principal line-
backers, fullback "Chick" Jagade
and quarter Rex Grossman, were
considered doubtful starters in the
Iowa game as the team entrained
tonight for Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Jagade, who went to the college
infirmary yesterday with tonsil-
lities, was sufficiently recovered
today to make the trip. Coach
Bo McMillin said he "may be able
to use Jagade a little" today.
Grossman, injured in the Wiscon-
sin game last Saturday, still had
a stiff neck and a sore ankle.

NEW YORK, Oct. 10-UP)-
Army opposes the biggest threat
to its unbeaten streak since the
Notre Dame game of last year in
its contest tomorrow with Illinois,
1946 Big Nine and Rose Bowl
champion, in Yankee Stadium.
All but 5,000 of the 71,000
seats were sold in mid-week and
officials hurriedly ordered the
printer to provide them with
standing room pasteboards.
Each team is shy some of the
name players of last year but each
has conquered a pair of rivals this
year with apparent ease. The Illini
subdued Pittsburgh, 14 to 0, be-
fore crushing Iowa, 35 to 12.
Army moved past Villanova, 13
to 0, and then conquered Colo-
rado, 47 to 0.
The intersectional tilt, which
replaces the usual Army-Notre
Dame contest on the New York
City program, is the fifth be-
tween the two schools. Each has
won two of the earlier meetings,
each getting the triumphs in
his own bailiwick.
Army has not been defeated
since it lost to Navy, 13 to 0, to
close out the 1943 season. Twenty-
nine of the games since then have
been victories while Notre Dame
held the Cadets to a scoreless tie
last Nov. 9. Illinois has a modest
win streak of eight.

A VETERAN-Perry Moss, the
Illini's passing quarter-back,
who will direct the attack in an
attempt to beat Army.

However, Michigan has demon-
strated it can go for a touchdown
from any part of the field, so
many experts feel that neither
punting, rugged line play nor high
water will be able to stop the
Wolverine land and air attack
