Squad Coaches Detect Flaws
In Jayvee--Frosh Scriunmage

Leahy Challenges

Michigan's freshman football
,squad, coached by Wally Weber,
received its first taste of competi-
tion as it engaged George Ceit-
haml's Wolverine jayvees in a 45-
minute scrimmage yesterday.
The freshmen took 20 minutes
to move the ball from one end of
the field to the other, but not
once did they fumble. Their run-
Injury List Grows
At Northwestern
EVANSTON, Ill., Oct. 13-(IP)-
Coach Bob Voigts, counting seven
fresh casualties after Northwest-
ern's 37-21 trimming by Minne-
sota, let his bruised Wildcats off
with a light drill minus pads to-
day in preparation for Saturday's
tangle with Michigan here.
In all, Northwestern has 11
players on the crippled list.
Most seriously hurt ip the
Gopher battle were guard Jerry
Carle with a wrenched Knee; nal -
back Larry Day with an injured
side; and center Dick Price with
bruised ribs. The rest had an as-
sortment of bumps and bruises.

Weber described his charges as
"lacking in polish," but added the
outfit showed plenty of fight.

stinging from Friday's defeat at
the hands of a none-too-smooth
Michigan State "B" team, can look
forward to a strenuous week of
"They need a lot of work," stat-
ed Coach George Ceithaml.
Coach Gib Holgate, who man-
aged the team while Ceithaml was
away on scouting duty, stated,
'We've got to find some pass-
catchers, and some blockers. Most
,. the key blocks belong to the
end: and they were not taking
their men out properly."
The Jayvees' first 'away' game
is scheduled for Friday afternoon
with Northwestern at Evanston.

CHICAGO, Oct. 13--(IP)-Coach
Frank Leahy of Notre Dame, ob-
viously irked at insinuations his
Fighting Irish aren't what they
were cracked up to be, today de-
clared the team was headed for
improvement and even tossed a
challenge at high-riding Michigan.
Plainly stung by a floor ques-
tion at the Herald-American
Quarterback Club luncheon which
jibed "by what score would Mich-
igan defeat Notre Dame," Leahy
"Notre Dame would welcome
the opportunity to play Michigan
any time, on any Saturday, dur-
ing any fall."
The two schools ended a two-
game series in 1943 when the
Irish defeated the Wolverines,

35-12. The previous year, Michi-
gan whipped Notre Dame, 32-20.
The current Michigan eleven,

over Michigan State, Stanford and

ing mainly on Johnny Lujack's
passing, has defeated Pittsburgh,
40-6, and Purdue, 22-7. Pitt was

Blaming pre-season publicity
which "jeopardized" chances for a
typical Notre Dame team, Leahy
admitted the Irish started slowly
this year. But he also pointed out
that 12 players, including end Jim
Martin, All-American tackle
George Connor and guard Bill
Fischer, have had a minimum of
practice due to injuries since drills
opened Sept. 8.
"The boys tried to stiff-arm all
the publicity about a Notre Dame
super team and they did a good
job of not letting it go to their
heads, but they are only human
and some of it affected their
play," said Leahy.

promise now. Notre Dame is go-
ing to get better from here on in.
This was by far the most brash
prediction made in years by Leahy,
a traditionally cautious and pes-
simistic mentor.
Leahy also heaped high praise
on Lujack in the wake of reports
that the Irish quarteback showed
a temper flare in practice last
week and bore a coolness towards
the coach prior to the Purdue
game Saturday.
Leahy said Lujack was the fin-
est quarterback in either collegi-
ate or professional football. 'On
defense, he is the best in America
and offensively he is even passing
better than last year," the coach

Michigan Faces Wildcats
In Conference Opener

With the non-conference season
a matter of history, Michigan's
1947 football team will settle down
to the matter at hand, as it tackles
the first of six Big Nine foes,
Northwestern, this Saturday at
At yesterday's weekly press
conference, Crisler said that
scouting reports indicated that
Northwestern was quite handi-
capped by the absence of star-
center Alex Sarkisian in their
37-21 loss to Minnesota Satur-
Sarkisian was one of the best
centers that Michigan played
against last season and was
chosen on the all-Conference
In spite of its loss to the Golden
Gophers, the Wildcats displayed
an intricate passing attack. A pair
of quarterbacks, Jim Farrar and
Don ,Burson, sparked the North-
western air attack and the ends
also performed admirably.
Crisler decsribed his Wolverines'
as "off the physical pace" as a
result of their three easy inter-
sectional victories. Failure to meet

expected tough competition in
spite of gruelling daily workouts
was blamed by the mentor for the
present situation.
The Wolverines came out of
the Pitt game with only one in-
jury of any consequence, that of
a knee injury to fullback Dick
Kempthorn in the first half. It
is hoped that it is only a bruise
since the X-rays taken of the
injured knee have proved nega-
An interesting coincidence in
last Saturday's contest was that
Jack Weisenburger, who wears the
number 48, played 48 minutes of
the game.
Point a Minute?
Dspite their top -heavy
scores in three games, the Wol-
verine pigskin squad is not
quite a "point-a-minute" ag-
gregation. In 180 playing min-
utes, the gridders have com-
piled 173 points, Just seven
points shy of a "point-a-min-
ute" team.

To See Heavy
Line Practice
Looking ahead to the rapidly
approaching debut of his 150-
pound football team, Coach Cliff
Keene sent his junior-sized grid-
ders through another stiff work-
out yesterday.
Last Friday's intra-squad game
proved to be an eye-opener to
coaches and players alike. The
"Blue" team, tutored by Keene,
ran up a total of 198 bards via
rushing, while the "Red" team,
under Assistant Coach George
Allen, was only able to pick up
25 yards in its ground maneuvers.
The coaching staff was disap-
pointed in the line play of both
squads. As a result, plenty of hard
work is in store for the midget]
A brighter side to the picture'
was provided by the sparkling per-
formance of several backs.
Individual star of the day was
Charlie Ketterer, who sparked the
"Blue" team to their one-sided
victory. Ketterer, third-baseman
on last spring's Wolverine base-
ball team, went 78 yards on a punt
return for one score and set up
another with a 45-yard return.
The lightweight eleven opens its
season at home on November 1
with Wisconsin as the opponent.

There is no varsity cross-coun-
try at Michigan.
This sounds mighty odd in that
over the past 15 years we have
had probably the greatest distance
squads in the country. And for
those golfers whose afternoon pill-
chasing involves the added hazard
of some 50 scurrying thinclads, it
sounds like a downright fable. But
take Coach Doherty's word for it,
"There is none."
It's all part of a theory, and
a theory that has paid off. When
Michigan distance runners meet
grinds, they are in better condi-
tion. Cross country is a lot of
hard work and the emotional
pressure is terrific.
Teams going through this regi-
men experience a natural letdown
when the winter finally closes the
courses. The catch is that the
track season is just around the
corner with its load, and to get
back a good physical and mental
edge takes some wizardry on the
coach's part.
The up-shot of the whole
matter is that Michigan "plays
at cross country." A few years
ago the boys objected to this
quotation, and so the coach took
them up on it. A team was sent
down to the Nationals. The boys

came back with a real apprecia-
tion of what real harriering was.
Because cross country isn't a
varsity sport doesn't mean "no
meets." Usually a couple of runs
are staged with the Hurons of
Ypsi Normal. This year a home-
and-home arrangement has been
made with Ohio State.
The fine thing about this ar-
rangement is that all men are
eligible for the big 15-man team.
that is planned. Freshmen as
well as seniors will be running.
And a further stipulation that
the varsity stars won't be in the
fray evens up the whole thing
After these inter-school duels
some big squad doings usually
come up. The coaches put their
heads together and dope out some
handicaps so that the whole bus-
iness is on akn equal basis.
