Yesterday's Scorers

Win over Indiana
Keeps Wolverine
Record Spotless
Bump Elliott Paces Scoring Attack
With Two First-Half Touchdowns
After being partially stalled for two Saturdays in a row, Michigan's
high scoring grid machine moved back into high gear yesterday by
rolling over a game but out-gunned Indiana eleven 35-0 before a chilled
sellout crowd of 85,937.
Flashing the power and' daring that made them almost a point-a-
minute outfit in their first four games, the Wolverines scored three
times in the first 19 minutes, going all the way each time they got
their hands on the ball.

he said. "With this final infor-

LONDON, Nov. 8-(MP)-Potato
rationing was added tonight to
the long list of restrictions har-
assing food-short Britons.
Food Minister John Strachey-

British meat, bacon, sugar and

Strachey told a news confer-

gan's"Big Three" (Bob Chappuis,
Bump Elliott and Jack Weisen-
burger) accounted for 324 of the
Wolverines 363 yards and had a
hand directly in all but one of
their touchdowns.
Chappuis got 103 of these
through the air and 48 on the
ground and passed for three touch-
downs. Weisenburger got 91 yards
in ten tries and Bump picked up
55 and scored twice.
Chap Takes Charge
The Chap personally took
charge of the first , two touch-
downs. After the opening kickoff,
he sparked the team on a 72 yard
sustained march that ended with
one of his passes hitting Yerges for
Iyards and the first score.
After Indiana punted to Michi-
gan's 41, Chap went right back to
work and in nine plays Michigan
had another touchdown. He passed
for 6 to Bump, 22 to Mann, and
then tore 15 yards off tackle to
the four. Four plays later, Elliott
dove over for the second tally.
Four minutes passed and Bump
did it again, only this time it was
Weisenburger who set up the
score. Starting from his own 34,
the slippery fullback took a lat-
eral from Yerges, picked up a key
block by Stu Wilkins and scooted
60 yards down the sidelines all
the way to the Indiana six. Chap-'
puis then passed to Elliott in the
flat and the Bumper dove over.
Brieske made good his third
straight kick and the score read
Bump's Turn to Sparkle
In the second half it was Bump's
turn to lead a drive down the field.

Freezing Fans
Flaunt Flasks
Foe Funless
Soldiers, Newsmen
Guests of University
A shivering throng of nearly
86,000 yesterday saw the Mighty
Michigan Wolverines shatter. In-
diana 35 to 0.
The mercury took a dive shortly
after the game got underway, as
a chill wind sent the temperature
to the low thirties. And the sec-
ond sell-out throng of the season
got a taste of winter as the
wind whipped scattered snow
flakes across the field.
Flasks Appear
With cold weather in evidence
for the first time this year, the
time honored fire-water flask also
put in an appearance. However,
local police report little traffic in
inebriates. And local liquor stores
revealed that business had fallen
far below last week's sales which
were boosted by the influx of
homecoming alumni.
The lone, red-clad Indiana
cheerleader seemed to be the only
Hoosier rooter able to muster a
cheer after the Wolverine jugger-
naut started rolling. His exhorta-
tions failed to move the 2,400 sad-
dened Indian fans who made the
trek from Bloomington.
G.I. Guests
Special guests of the game to-
day were 80 hospitalized soldiers
from Percy Jones Hospital and 50
veterans from the VA center at
Fort Custer. The men were guests
of the University Athletic Asso-
ciation and the trip was spon-
sored by the Red Cross.
