Frosh Tangle
With Jayvees
In Mud, Dusk
Defense Highlights
Scrimmage Session
The Jayvees got a big taste of
scrimmage yesterday as they took
on Wally Weber's freshman squad
in a slam-bang 45-minute ses-
Playing in a lot of mud and a
lot of late afternoon darkness, the
defensive work of both teams prov-
ed outstanding. Only in the clos-
ing minute of scrimmage did the
B squad threaten the Frosh goal
line. Then with the Jayvees eight
yards from paydirt and four
chances to get there, the Fresh-
men threw up a goal line defense
that couldn't be penetrated. The
referee's whistle and darkness end-
ed the game with the ball resting
two yards from the double stripe.
Frosh on Offense
The freshmen found it even
more difficult to get their
offense moving as they Vere rush-
ed time and time again by the alert
and fast charging Jayvees for-
wards. John Pagjen, defensive
center, was particularly effective
as he burst through the freshman
line on several occasions to nail
the ball carrier before the play
could be gotten under way.
Dave Gomberg and Dick Strauss
continually broke through the
Frosh line to hurry pass attempts
while the backfield defenders prov-
ed themselves capable of knock-
ing down those which did get into
the air.
Kulpinski Shines
Jayvees Ray Kulpinski and John
Maturo were often conspicuously
present in the freshman backfield
as they charged through to slam
the runner on the ground behind
the scrimmage line.
Dan Frank gave a good account'
of himself at end with some fine
defensive work, consistently turn-
ing the plays and piling up the
freshman interference.

Dworsky Cited
For Line Play
NEW YORK, Nov. -(A')--Dan
Dworsky, Michigan center, was
honored by the "lineman of the
week" award, placing second to
Bobby Davis, Georgia Tech tackle.
Just, as Davis helped keep Geo-
rgia Tech's slate clean, Dworsky's
performance against Illinois play-
ed a large part in keeping Mich-
igan among the unbeaten and un-
"Dworsky stamped himself of
true All-American caliber," com-
mented Bob Hooey of the Colum-
bus (Ohio) "Ohio State Journal."
"On numerous occasions he was a
vital cog in stopping the Illinois
- attack within sight of the Wolver-
ine goal."

TOUCHDOWN EXPRESS-Bump Elliott, flashy Wolverine wingback,- high-balls his way through a
maze of Illinois players and heads for touchdown territory after taking a punt from Eddelman of the
Illini. Bruce Hilkene (75), Jack Weisenburger, (48) ,and Bob Mann (81) watch the play from behind
the flying Elliott. The action gave the Wolverines their first touchdown to take the lead early in the
first quarter.

If Michigan and Indiana have
to play their game Saturday in
weather similar to yesterday's mis-
ty rain, Coach "Fritz" Crisler and
his charges will be ready for the
line battle that mud usually pro-
The Wolverines completed their
second day of workouts in poor
football weather and spent most
of it executing line and backfield
plays that stressed clean ball
handling in addition to Coach
Crisler's usual demand for per-
fection in individual assignments.
Disregarding the popular be-
lief that the Wolverines have
successfully passed what was
considered their last obstacle to
the Western Conference Cham-
pionship, Coach Crisler and the
# team are not looking forward to
1 this Saturday's encounter with
the Hoosiers as a "breather."
Having adopted the attitude
that no game is won until the
last minute has passed, the Wol-
verines continued to show the
enthusiasm that has marked all
practice sessions this year.
The team's belief that "Bo" Mc-
Millin's squad is not to be re-
garded as a push-over is born out
by the Hoosiers' past record
against the Wolverines. The two
teams have met four times under
Coach Crisler and "Bo" McMillin.
Michigan has won only two of
these games with victories in 1943
and 1946.
Indiana, playing in much the
same role that it will this Satur-
day, walked off with one of the
1944 season's big upsets when it
stunned the Wolverines 20 to 0.
Again in 1945 the Hoosiers were
generally rated as the underdog
and, showing no respect for the
favorites, started their drive to-
wards the conference champion-
ship by downing Michigan, 13 to
Coach "Bo" McMillin willI
have one of the stars of his 1945
team on the field Saturday when
the Indiana squad attempts to

do what six teams have already
failed to do - stop Michigan.
George Taliaferro, star Hoosier
halfback, and currently one of
the nation's offensive leaders will
be on hand to try once again to
be the thorn in Michigan's side.
It was chiefly through his efforts
that the Indiana team took the
1944 upset from Michigan as well
as the close 7 to 0 decision over
Ohio State last week.
Another stout peg in "Bo" Mc-
Millin's invading Indiana eleven
is, Mel Groomes, the graceful
Negro defensive halfback who
is adequately termed by McMil-
lin as "the best pass defender
we've ever had around here."
The Trenton, New York lad first
gained fame in 1944 by streak-
ing out of nowhere to consistent-
ly ground Bobby Hoernschmey-
er's passes in daily drills.
Not only does Mr. Groomes bol-
ster the pass defense network, but
he superbly handles the ball both
in running and pass receiving as
evidenced by his 1945-46 record
of averaging 232 yards in offen-
sive play.
In addition to Taliaferro and
Groomes, the Hoosiers will be
ready to send veteran end Bob
Ravensburg, another holdover
from the 1944 squad, and a well
balanced line composed of vet-
eran guard, Capt. Howard Brown
and three highly rated sopho-
more linemen, Ralph Wagner,
Wilfred Rawl and Casimir Wit-
ucki. Michigan will also have
to face quarterback Rex Gross-
man who stands high among Big
Nine backfield stars.
Against these Hoosier standouts,
Coach Crisler will rely on his us-
ual offensive and defensive squads
bolstered by the news that Tackle
Al Wistert will probably be ready
for Saturday's game. Coach Cris-
Crisler has also stated that Dick
Kempthorn will definitely see ac-
tion this weekend.

CHICAGO, Nov. 5.-(P)-Twirling
the crystal ball on crossed fingers:
Notre Dane 21, Army 7 - The
Irish will kiss the Cadets good-bye
in rough fashion, but not as bat-
teringly as a revenge motive might
dictate. Notre Dame nasn't for-
gotten those 1944 and 1945 plast-
erin,gs by the Blanchard-Davit
gang, but Army's stout line will
make it a game. The Irish can't
swing their Sunday punch too of-
ten and still have enough left for
the Southern California game Dec.
6 which looms more and more like
a sizzler.
Michigan 20, Indiana 6 - The
Wolverines would have to be far
off form to get tripped by the
Hoosiers, whose George Taliafer-
ro simply will be out-numbered by

Michigan's Bob Chappuis, Jack
Weisenburger, Gene Derricotte
and Bump Elliott.
Wisconsin 14, Iowa 7 - The
Badgers are bound to let down af-
ter their easy romp over North-
western, while the Hawkeyes will
still be stinging from their spank-
ing by Purdue. Wisconsin's speed,
however, should shade Iowa and
bring the Badgers into a title
showdown with Michigan in their
Nov. 15 date at Madison.
Minnesota 14, Purdue 13 - Here
we go voting against the steamed-
up Boilermakers for the second
straight Saturday, but those Go-
phers are the spoiling kind. Ber-
nie Bierman's lads will have to
step lively against Bob De Moss'
passing, but they hustled Michi-
gan's Bob Chappuis to death and
they'll do it to Boilermaker Bob.

Undefeated Lightweights Face
Once-Beaten Buckeyes Friday


Are Available Now


Michigan's 150-pound football
team wound up their final heavy
practice of the week yesterday,
and turned their eyes to Friday
afternoon's tilt with the Buckeyes
of Ohio State.
The junior Wolvreines went
through a stiff work-out yester-
day afternoon, as Coach Cliff
Keen sent them through a two
hour session of scrimmage and
body contact work which lasted
until after dark, and then called
for a whack at the tackling dum-
mies under the glare of flood-
Seek Second Win
The lightweights will he seek-
ing their second victory in as
many starts when they take the
field against the Columbus con-
tingent Friday afternoon. They
opened the season last week by
drubbing the Univrsity of Illinois
33-0 with quarter-back and cap-
tain, Charlie Ketterer, and left-
hlaf, John Wilcox, pacing the at-
Buckeyes Beaten Once
Ohio State, on the other hand
brings a tarnished record into the
battle. The Buckeyes, who have a
hundred men, dropped their sea-

son opener to. Wisconsin, 13-0.
Coach Keen, however, pointed out
that both the. Badger touchdowns
came as a result of blocked punts,
and that the Buckeyes were the
victims of bad breaks all after-
noon. He especially expects the
Ohio State line to be strong, and
emphasized that the Wolverine
forward wall will have to be on its
toes to stop the OSU attack.
The 150-pounders will tune up
with signal drills tomorrow after-
noon, and then will call it a day
until they take the field Friday.
