Ryan Goes 74 Yards
Combining stellar defensive play
with a smoothly operating and
hard running offense, Michigan's
Jayvees defeated a heretofore un-
beaten, unscored upon MSC "B"
team 13-7 yesterday at East
The greater part of the game
was played on wind blown and
rain swept field which confined
the scoring to the first half. Of-
fensive play was hindered by the
wet ball and muddy field caused
by the downpour which started
early in the second quarter and
continued the rest of the game.
Spearheaded by John Kulpin-
ski, Michigan's hard charging
line kept State's backs bottled
and held them to a total of 49
Yards gained and three first
downs in 60 minutes of play.
Michigan moved the ball right
down, the field the first time they
got their hands on it. Dick Brown
kicked off to State and after two
plays the Spartans had lost four
yards. Bud Crane punted to John
Wilcox who was tackled on the
Wolverine 47.
Prentice Ryan moved the ball
to State's 29 on a fake kick and
two plays later Irv Small carried
the pigskin to the seven. Small ex-
ecuted a quarter-back sneak and
scored from the one-foot line on
fourth down. Wilcox' attempted
conversion was blocked.
Midway in the second quarter
after a series of punt exchanges
and fumbles State capitalized
on a Michigan miscue. John
Buda recovered for the Spart-
ans on Michigan's 30-yard line.
Gordon Thomas found a hole
and reached the 16. Then Crane
totted the ball to the end zone
the next play on an end sweep.
Ed Hempel gave State a short-
lived lead with a perfect boot
from placement.
The Jayvees struck back with
lightning-like swiftness. After tak-
ing the kickoff on the 20, Ryan
broke loose on the third play of
the series to gallop 76 yards for the

for Winning Marker
,inning marker. Wilcox' kick was
good and the Jayvees stood on the
ong end of the 13-7 score.
Michigan had two more oppor-
-unities to add to their total when
Xl Noble recovered a fumble on
Mate's 29, and later in the quar-
er when Dan Frank recovered a
blocked punt on the nine, but
they could not get an offense go-
ing in the mud and rain.
State's only threat to score
again came midway in the third
quarter. Starting on their own
40 they made one first down and
were about a foot short of an-
other on the Michigan 39 with
three downs to go. The Jayvees
hard charging line pushed State
back to the 44 where they were
forced to kick.
The Spartans were never in-
side Michigan's 35 yard line tle
rest of the game. Michigan put on
a drive in the fourth quarter, but
bogged down on the 19 and
Brown's attempted field goal was
not good.
Later in the quarter Michigan
had another opportunity when
Frank Nakamura and John Eiz-
onas recovered a fumble on State's
20. Using straight line plays the
Jayvees moved the ball. to the
twelve, but the Spartans took over
From then on neither team seri-
ously threatened and the re'.nain-
ing minutes turned into a battle
against the elements.
.broncos Meet
Michigan State
A rugged Santa Clara football
team, pointed for its one out of
state game will meet Michigan
State at Macklin Field here Sat-
urday in the fifth renewal of the
East-West rivalry.
Spokesmen for the visitors em-
phasized that this is the only
game the Broncos play outside
California and their only meeting
with an Eastern team except an
earlier home stand against South-
ern Methodist.
"The boys didn't take this trip
to be beaten," said a Santa Clara

Hockey Team
Bolstered by
12 Veterans
Starrak, MacMillan,
Hill Are Available
At the Coliseum the sound of
skates on ice and the pucks rat-
tling off the boards signify that
Coach Vic Heyliger's boys are dili-
gently practicing in anticipation
of the coming hockey season.
In his three years as mentor of
the Maize and Blue pucksters,
Heyliger has put together 33 wins
and 21 losses. The records can't
predict the out'come of the 1947-
48 season, but they can point at
the Michigan sextet and give fair
warning to all opposition. For
Heyliger, a former Chicago Black
Hawker, has 12 experienced men
returning to the Wolverine ice and
they form the nucleus of his team.
MacInnes Back
In Jack Maclnnes and Jack
MacDonald Michigan has two fine
goalies. MacInnes is the lad who
was praised by Jack Adams two
seasons ago when, after seeing the
Toronto boy in action against his
Detroit Red Wings, he was quoted
as saying, "That kid is not only
good-he's great."
On the defensive line Heyliger
will have Captain Connie Hill, who
is the first man ever to be elected
to that post for three consecutive
seasons. A five foot, five inch ar-
chitecture student, the bespec-
tacled Ontario puckster spent 51
minutes in the penalty box last
year earning the title of Mich-
igan's "Bad Boy." More flattering
perhaps is the two goals and 12
assists credited to him for the
1946-47 playing season.
Upton, Smith at Defnese
In addition to Hill, hard-check-
ing Herb Upton, Ross Smith, and
shifty Dick Starrak, all seasoned
players, will take part in bolster-
ing the Wolverine defense.
The forward line of Michigan
spells experience with a capital E.
Gordie MacMillan, scoring wizzard
of the past two seasons, netted 59
points in the 1945-46 season, a
mark which erased the previous
high of 47 set in 1937 by Coach
MacMillan piled up a total of
38 markers to tie Al Renfrew for
scoring honors last year, although
Renfrew was credited with five
more goals than "Mac." Renfrew
has again donned the bulky para-
phernalia and will be available for
heavy duty. He set an all-time
record for the Maize and Blue
by creasing the nets twice in seven
seconds two years ago.
Gacek Returns
Wally Gacek is also back for
action with the forward line, and
here is a lad who on many occa-
sions has turned in the "hat rtick,"
scoring three goals in one game.
Another -fancy stickster is Bill
Jacobson, who was a member of
the illustrious aggregation of two
years back that scored 168 goals
during the season for an'average
of over seven per game. Sam
Steadman, whose stickwork was
the object of high praise by
hockey-minded fans last season,
rounds out the veteran forward

(Continued from Page 1)
master at the art of pulling upsets,
the greying Hoosier coach is one
of the best in the business when
it comes to pointing a team for
a particular contest.
Those who were around in 1944
and 1945 well remember a couple
of 20-0 and 13-7 surprises he
pulled out of his bag of tricks. Bo
has been criticized for calling
plays from the bench, but in more
than one instance in the past it
has paid off in "games won" divi-
Finally there is the big Indiana
line. Averaging an even 200
pounds, the Hoosier front wall is
the number one defensive unit in
the Western Conference. It's also
held six opponents to an average
of 91 yards on the ground and 94;
through the air which is pretty
fair defensive work in any league.
Whether the red and white
line can stop Crisler's highly-
geared offensive machine is an-
other matter. Minnesota and
Illinois slowed it down two
weeks running now, but neither
was able to stall it enough to
Against the Gophers and Illini,
it had to play cautionusly, but to-
day's game should see more of
the dash and daring that featured
its first four games when it ran
up close to a point-a-minute pro-
If they run true to past form,
the Hoosiers themselves can be
expected to add considerably to
the Wolverine offense. So far this
season, they have had 14 passes
intercepted and have fumbled 19
times, losing the ball on 13 of
these occasions. -
Of course, Crisler has plenty
of backs who like to do their
own work. There's All-American
Bob Chappuis whose running
game finally caught up with his
passing game at Illinois last
week. There's Jack Weisenburg-
er who is well on his way to
the Conference rushing cham-
pionship with a 7.1 average
every time he puts his hands
on the ball.
Not to overlook Bump Elliott,
Gene Derricotte or Hank Fonde.
The Bumper was almost the whole

show at Champaign last Saturday
and is finally getting his much de-
served recognition as one of the
Big Nine's best backs. Derricotte
and Fonde each scored the win-
ning touchdowns against Minne-
sota and Illinois, and are probably
two of the better "second string"
backfield men in the country.
To match this potent array of
talent, McMillin has - besides
Taliaferro-a crop of good, but
not exceptional backs. Chick Ja-
gade, 210 pound fullback, caused
plenty of trouble up here in '44
and '45 and has averaged 4.6
yards per crack so far this year.
Right half Dick Deranek, has a
5.8 average while Mel Groomes
is the best spot runner on the
team with an 8.3 average in ten
Just what these two sets of
backs will or will not do this af-
ternoon seems to depend a lot on
what kind of tidings the Weather
Man brings to the game with him.
He has predicted cold, cloudy skys,
and possible rain, but even at that
it should be Michigan by two or
three touchdowns.

Fumbles and intercepted passes
were a nemesis to Michigan's
lightweight eleven as they dropped
a hard-fought 13-2 decision to
Ohio State yesterday afternoon on,
rain-soaked Ferry Field.,
High winds and a continuous
downpour hampered play through-
out, forcing both teams to rely
almost wholly on their ground
Wolverine fumbles and inter-
ceptions resulting from the wet
condition of the ball resulted in
both Buckeye scores.
Michigan however, was the first
to score midway in the initial pe-
riod. Completely dominating play
from the opening kickoff, the Wol-
verine lightweights drove all the
way to Ohio's one yard line only
to have a fumble recovered by the
Ohio attempted to kick out of
danger in its own end zone but
kicker Dick Morton juggled a
bad pass from center and was
tackled by Wolverine back Ross
Marshall before he could get the
ball away. The safety gave the
Wolverines a 2-0 lead.
From that point it was all Ohio.
Shortly after the kickoff a pass
from Wolverine Charlie Ketterer
to Jim McKhee was intercepted by
the Buckeyes and returned to
Michigan's 20 yard line. On the
second play from scrimmage Left
halfback Bole Scott went straight
thgough the center of the Wol-
verine line for a score.
The kick was blocked and the
Buckeyes led 6-2 as the first quar-
ter ended.
The second period developed
into a battle of lines with neither
team able to hold on to the slip-
pery ball long enough to do any

second half opened only to have

Michigan was somewhat baffled
by Ohio's unique backfield forma-

modified short - punt formation
with the quarterback lining up be-
hind the center as in the "T" but
not always receiving the ball.
The visitors were most effec-
tive in their plunges through the
center of the line, continually
picking up needed yardage
through big holes that were
opened up.
Michigan captain and quarter-
back Charlie Ketterer was handi-
capped all day by the wet ball. It
