Northwestern Passers Major Threat;

(Special to The Daily)
EVANSTON, Ill., Oct. 17-A
hard-running Northwestern Jay-
vee squad handed Michigan's B-
team its second straight setback,
at Dyche Field this afternoon,
rolling to a 20-6 triumph over the
shackled Wolverines.
With Michigan's single wing
plays on the taboo list, the-Jay-
vees mulled along as best they
could from the T, sticking mostly
to Northwestern's own plays, and
only once did they manage any-
tning hKe a sustained drive.

Olson Scores Twice
In Intra-Squad Game
Fighting every inch of the way,
the blue-shirted first-stringers of
Cliff Keen's "little Wolverines"
scored twice in each half to win a
hard-fought intra-squad game
yesterday afternoon on Ferry
the reds, representing the sec-
ond squad, held the blues score-
less for the entire first period but
gave way to two rapid-fire touch-
downs midway in the second quar-
ter, on wide end sweeps by Cle-
land Nelson and John Olson.
Olson repeated again in the
third quarter on a ten yard run
around right end, and Charlie
Ketterer wound up the day's
scoring with an 80 yard punt re-
turn early in the fina4l period.
Highlight of the day's activities
was the sturdy defense of the red
forces, who were swamped by the
first-stringers' offense in.a game
a week ago.
Outstanding defense for the
reds were two newcomers to the
squad, Bob McCormick and Tom
Saiki, a pair of sturdy tackles.
In the backfield quarterback
George Sipp, who has never had
any previous football experience,
exlhibited some of the finest
passing seen among the light-
weights to date.
Line Coach George Allen ex-
pressed pleasure at the perform-
ance of the red team which has
shown considerable improvement.
r He stressed the fact however, that
only 14 men on the entire squad
have had any previous football ex-
perience and that only four of
that number had earned letters in
any kind of varsity competition.
The lightweights are still in
need of good football material and
all tryouts are being welcomed by
Coaches Keen and Allen.

Fitch, John Maturo, Dave Gom-
berg, and Dick Strauss bottled up
the Northwestern attack most of
the afternoon, but two quick
touchdowns just before the end of
the first half was enough to turn
the trick.
The first came two minutes be-
fore intermission. With the ball
resting on the midfield stripe in
Wildcat possession, Fullback
Ralph Rossi took a lateral from
his quarterback, Johnny Yung-
wirth and streaked to the Mich-
igan 29-yard line. From that
point,, Jack McCartney, the best
running back of the day, blasted
through an opening in the Mich-
igan forward wall and took it to
pay dirt. Yungwirth converted.
Wildcats Score Quickly
Michigan received and failed to
makre the distance in three plays
and punted to the Wildcats with
less than a minute remaining in
the half. Northwestern tallied on
two quick passes. A long one from
Bob Malloy to Al Thomas took
it to the five yard line and Yung-
wirth made the extra point the
hard way. He scooped up a bad
pass from center and ran to make
it 14-0 at -the half.
The second half began and it
looked as if Michigan was through
for the day as the Wildcats staged
a 60-yard touchdown march with
Halfback Miles Anderson scoring
from the six-yard line. But the
middle of the Wolverine line tight-
ened and outcharged Northwest-
ern the rest of the way.
Line Blocks Punt1
The line en mass, set up Mich-f
igan's touchdown late in the third
quarter. The whole center of the
line broke through and blocked
Pat Keefe's punt and End Johnny
Anderson fell on it on the Wild-
cat 30-yard line.
Al Noble got four yards on a
straight buck and little Jim Mor-
rish scooted 12 yards to the 16-
yard line. Next a Ghindia to
Anderson jump pass was good to
the three yard line. Irv Small
dove over on a quarterback sneak
to tally for Michigan. Johnny
Wilcox missed the conversion.

figure to whip the Wolverines,
they may force Crisler to employ
his first-stringers the major part
of the game. The Wolverine
coach has been very liberal in his
use of players, sending 41 against
Michigan State and Stanford, and
43 against Pitt.
Since scouting reports indicate
that Michigan will be facing their
stiffest competition of the year to-
day, the fans at Dyche Stadium
may finally get a good look at Bob
Chappuis, Michigan's brilliant
half-back and leading candidate
for All-America. The Chap has
played only a total of 42 minutes
in three games, never wasting any
time aiding the Michigan cause.
He has completed_ nine of 13
passes for 221 yards and four
The aerial-minded Wolverines,
who lead the nation in total of-
fense with an average of almost
500 yards per game, will also have
Wally Teninga and Gene Derri-
cotte doing quite a bit of the pass-
ing today.
In addition to Chappuis, whose
picture graces this week's cover of
Look magazine, the rest of the
starting Wolverine backfield will
include Bump Elliott at wingback,
Howie Yerges at quarter, and Jack
Weisenburger at full.
Limited Duty

as Michigan's best line backer,

liant fullback from Canton, Ohio,

battle with Pitt.-

luckless Cecconi.


For the first time since 1941,1
the Intramural building will pro-1
vide athletic facilities for foreign
students by means of teams set up
in the International Center. At
present there is a Soccer League,
consisting of six teams, which be-
gins its schedule with two games
today at Ferry Field.
The fall Intramural program
will go into effect this Monday,
Oct. 20, with excellent instruc-
tion offered in a number of sports
at the Sports Building.'
Men on campus have an un-

usual opportunity to learn or to
improve themselves in a sport by
taking advantage of this program.
Such activities as boxing, fencing,
gymnastics and swimming will
begin Monday, and there may be
instruction set up in golf, bad-
minton, life saving, tennis, and
wrestling later this fall.
If you want to win an all-cam-
pus championship, this program,
with instructors such as Newt
Loken and Earl Riskey, will give
you the best coaching available.

Fullback Also Shines
On Baseball Diamond
"He goes through the holes in
the lines before the holes are even
That was the comment of a,
press box observer at one of the
recent Michigan football games of
Jack Weisenburger, spinning Wol-
verine fullback.
Star Since 1944
Jack has been starring ever
since he first put on a Michigan
uniform back in 1944. A graduate
of Muskegon Heights High School,
where he shined in baseball, foot-
ball and basketball, he first saw
action as a left-half back against
the Iowa Pre-Flight Seahawks.
With the beginning of the 1945
season, Wolverine football men-
tor Herbert O. "Fritz" Crisler
found himself with a wealth of
'halfbacks, so Jack was switched to
fullback, a position that he pre-
fers because of the spinning as-
pect involved.
Number One Ground Gainer
Currently the number one
ground gainer on the team, Jack is
showing the stuff that has made
him one of the most feared run-
ners on theWolverine eleven.
His biggest gridiron thrill came
earlier this season when, taking
the ball on a spinner play, he
raced through the Stanford line
and 61 yards to a touchdown, the
longest run of his college career.
The toughest team he eves faced,
according to Jack, was the power-
ful Army team of 1945 in Yankee
Stadium. That was the game in
which Davis and company downed
a fighting Wolverine eleven 28-7.
Also Plays Shortstop
Not only a star on the gridiron,
Jack is one of the mainstays on
Ray Fisher's baseball nine, hold-
ing down the shortstop position.
His versatility extends to the base-
ball diamond too, for upon the
return of Don Robinson in 1946,
Jack readily made the switch to;
the outfield.
Unless something unforseen
happens, he will be one of the few
men in Michigan's athletic history
to graduate with eight letters.
Upon his graduation, Jack plans
to go into professional baseball.

victory tonight.
The powerful Southerners

refused to allow the Tigers any
more points as they thrust aside
five more scoring threats.
The Eagles came back after the
half to battle the Louisianians
to a stand-still and almost to
knot the count. They scored once
in the third period and then came
back to cross LSU's goal again
only to fail in one conversion and
barely miss a tie.

CHICAGO, Ill., Oct. 17-De-
fending champion Illinois and re-
surging Minnesota, both undefeat-
ed in three games, will meet in the
feature Big Nine battle tomorrow
before 65,000 fans at Memorial
Stadium in Champaign.
Thus far Minnesota has defeat-
ed Washington, 7-6; and Nebraska
28-13. Last week they trounced
Northwestern 37-21 in their Con-
ference inaugural. Illinois after
defeating Pittsburgh 14-0 and
Iowa 35-12-were held scoreless by
a stubborn Army team last week-
Yale Meets Wisconsin

due engages comparatively weak

in Boston.
In another Conference clash
twice beaten Iowa meets likewise
twice-conquered Ohio State in Co-
lumbus in what should be a
mighty close game, according to
the experts.
A capacity crowd of 75,000 is ex-
pected to witness the Buckeye-
Hawkeye tilt as both teams strive
to get back into the plus side of
the ledger.
Indiana Faces Pitt
Indiana, loser to Iowa last week,
will also be seeking to get back its
winning ways when they meet the
Pittsburgh Panthers in Blooming-
ton. Pitt, conquered by the two
top teams in the country, Michi-
gan and Notre Dame, faces an-
other top-notch foe in Bo McMil-
lin's charging Hoosiers.

Tomasi at guards, and J. T. White
at center.
Wildcats Have Passing Attack
The Wildcats boast an impres-
sive passing attack, too. They have
a pair of strong-armed quarter-
backs, Jim Farrar and Don Bur-
son, who together have compiled
a record of 17 completions out of
28 attempts for 194 yards. Four of
Northwestern's seven touchdowns
this fall have been scored via the
air lanes.
The Wildcat line, never very
deep in reserves, was dealt two
staggering blows recently when
Alex Sarkisian, one of the best
centers in the Big Nine last year,
broke an arm in practice just be-
fore the Minnesota game and Fat-
so Day, 215-pound guard suffered
a foot injury. The latter, how-
ever, may be able to play against
Michigan, but two other guards,
Capt. Vinc Di Francesca and Jerry
Carle, will be sidelined with in-

Despite these injuries, the Wild-
cats flashed a well-balanced at-
tack against Minnesota by rolling
up over 325 yards. Leading ball
carrier against the Gophers was
Art Murakowski, who was shifted
from right half to fullback where
he gained 79 yards in 19 carries
for a 4.2 yards average.
Frank Aschenbrenner, a con-
stant thorn in the side of the Wol-
verine last year, played briefly last
week due to a leg injury, but he
will be ready for first-string duty
today at left-half. His running
mate at the other half-back spot
will be Tom Worthington who
scored two touchdowns against
