LeaIhy Remains at Alma Mater
DespiteRumors ofResignation

When Michigan's football team
tackles the dangerous Wisconsin
Badgers at Madison Saturday af-
ternoon for the 1947 Big Nine
championship,tit will mark the
22nd battle of a series between
the two schools thate ates back to
Michigan has won 15 games of
the series, Wisconsin 4, with one
tie, a memorable 7-7 game in 1921.
Perhaps one of the hardest
fought games of the entire series
was that of 1923 when the Wol-
verines romped to a 6-3 victory.
Rockwell Stars
In that game, Tod Rockwell
raced to a Michigan score on a
disputed touchdown sprint. Rock-1
well took a punt on his own 40-'
yard line and, as newsmen report-
ed, "twice he went down, seeming-
ly stopped, only to get up and run
The late Walter Eckersall, ref-
eree of the game, asked Field
Judge Col. Mumma for the deci-
sion on the play, and, after a hur-
ried conference, declared the
touchdown run was legal.
Fans Angry
"Eckie" had to be escorted from
the Stadium by the Wisconsin
players to protect him from* irate
fans. It was Wisconsin's first de-
feat of the season, and the Wol-
verines went on to win the mythi-
cal Big Nine championship. ,
It was in the 1921 contest that
Jack Blott, present Michigan line
coach, received a broken leg after


playing one of the finest games of
his All-American center career.
The 1921 deadlock, which came
when the two teams renewed foot-
ball relationships after a 16-year
lapse, saw a host of gridiron im-
Imortals swing into action.
For Michigan. there was Ernie
Vick, All-American center; Frank
Steketee. All-American fullback;
Irv Uteritz, quarter; and Harry
Kipke, All-American half-back
and later Wolverine coach.
Such Badger greats as Rollie
Williams. halfback, Guy Sundt,
fullback, and Gus Tebell, right
end, were all listed in the Wiscon-
sin line-up.
No Wins for Ten Years
Not since the 10-0 Badger win of
1934, has a Wisconsin football
team conquered Michigan. That
was the game Lynn Jordan re-
turned the kickoff 99 yards for a
thrilling touchdown gallop while
Mario Pacetti added the extra
point and later booted a 35-yard
'field goal.
Wisconsin lost at Ann Arbor in
1935, 20-12, and eight years later
when the two squads clashed
again, the Badgers dropped a 27-0
contest. Michigan won the 1944
and 1946 encounters here by 14-0
and 28-6 margins, respectively.

CHICAGO, Nov. 11-(YP)-Coach
Bob Voigts, whose, Northwestern
team lost a "long count" 7-6 game
to Ohio State last Saturday, to-
day proposed a "clock-watching"
fifth official at Big Nine games.
"I'm not complaining over the
timing as supervised by Ohio
State," Voigts told the Chicago
football writers, "but before we
lost possession of the ball in the
final minute of play, the clock
showed we took only 14 seconds to
run three plays-one second for
the first, two seconds for the sec-
ord and 11 seconds for the third."
He said a fifth official-in addi-
tion to the referee, umpires, head-
linesman and field judge-would

Here, in question and answer
form, are some facts on the
U. S. Air Force Aviation
" Cadet program. They cover
details you may have been
wondering about-and will be useful to you
if you want to learn to fly and begin a career
in one of today's fastest-moving fields.
1 Who is eligible f"r appointment to the Cadets?
You, if you're physically fit, single, between 20 and
261,4 years old, and have completed at least one-half
the requirements for a college degree from an
accredited institution - or pass an equivalent

serve Corps, and assigned to pilot duty with the
U. S. Air Force at a starting monthly salary of
$336 (including flight pay). "You will serve on
active duty for three years unless'sooner relieved,
and be eligible for $500 a year bonus for each year
of active duty as a Reserve Officer. If you're inter-
ested in a Regular Air Force commission, you'll
be given a chance to qualify.
4. What are the civilian career opportunities?
That's one you can answer for yourself by taking
into consideration these facts: Contrary to what
some people think, aviation is not overcrowded -
for pilots or anyone else. No field is expanding
more rapidly or offering more profitable openings
