Top Big Nine Offenses Meet in 'M'-Badger Battle

Greene House, ATO's Grab


Jayvees Brave Cold and Ice;
Hope to Put Chill on Badgers

Although the air was frigid and
patches of ice crackled under their
feet as they drilled yesterday on
Ferry Field, the Jayvees have not
assumed a cold attitude toward
their contest with the Wisconsin
"B" squad at Madison Saturday
The Jayvees face an even more
difficult task this weekend than
they encountered last Friday when
they defeated an unbeaten, un-
scored upon MSC "B" team.
The Badgers also possess an
enviable record. One of their
wins was a 26-6 victory over
Northwestern. It was at the
hands of the Wildcat "B" squad
that Michigan suffered one of
its defeats.
However, the Jayvees intend to
disregard the derogatory press no-
tices. With the revitalized offense
that was successfully uncorked
last week, the team will enter
Madison with intentions of a re-
peat performance.
Assistant Coach Gib Holgate
We specialize in.
The Daseola Barbers
Between State & Mich. Theatres

will handle the team this week
as Coach George Ceithaml will
be at Columbus scouting Ohio
Holgate plans to start the same
men who began last week's con-
test with the possible exception of
Dan Frank who suffered a couple
of cracked ribs in practice drills.
X-rays are being taken to deter-
mine the extent of the injury.
Coach George Ceithaml's squad
opened their season with a 13-0
win over Grand Rapids Junior
College but lost the next two in
succession to Michigan State and
Tumiblers Hol
Intra-Squad Tilt
The Michigan Gymnastics
Team, organized for the first
time since 1933, held its first
infra-squad meet of the sea-
son yesterday at the I-M
Building before thirty spec-
tators. 44
The youthful mentor, Newt
Loken, broke the squad down
into two teams, consisting of
the "Maize" and the "Blue,"
with the Maize edging out the
Blue by 4/6 of a point, 46 5/6
to their opponents' 46 1/6.
Tom Tillman was the indi-
vidual high point man by cap-
turing two first places and one
second place with Dick Fash-
baugh running a close second
with two first places.

Meet Badgers
Under Lights
Cliff Keen's lightweights will be
gunning for their second victory
of the current campaign this Fri-
day night when they meet the
150-pounders of Wisconsin under
the lights at Madison.
The Badgers promise to offer
stiff opposition to the Wolverines,
having won their first two games.
In their initial win, they defeated
the Illini by a 26-6 count.
Badgers Beat Ohio
OSU bowed to the Wisconsin
eleven the following week, 13-0.
Michigan, on the other hand, had
difficulty in starting their offen-
sive rolling, and came out on the
short end of a 13-2 score against
the Buckeyes.
Wisconsin boasts a good passing
and running attack evidenced by
the 20 first downs they rolled up
against the Buckeyes.
Keen, plans to take 22 men, two
complete teams, on the trip, but
will probably leave four of his
starters in Ann Arbor because of
Brad McKee, first string end,
was injured in the Ohio State
game, and it is doubtful that he
will accompany the squad.
Murrell, Marshall Out
In addition, George Hurrell, end,
Bud Marshall, hard - charging
back, and John Allred, guard, will
probably be forced to the sidelines.
The contest will be the first un-
der the lights for the Maize and
Blue 150-pounders, and will get
underway at 7:30 p.m.
The team will leave Ann Arbor
at 7:55 a.m. Friday morning with
the varsity and jayvee squads.
Captain Charlie Ketterer, who
was hampered last week against.
Ohio State by rain and high winds
will be prepared to lead the Wol-
verine's passing offensive if the
weather permits. A wet field could
mean a repetition of last week's
performance where fumbles and
interceptions led to the light-
weight's downfall.

Superior Passing Gives
olverines Slight Edge
Stellar Performance of Girard Raises
WisconsinHopes for Win in Crucial Tilt

It will be a meeting of the two
top offensive teams in the confer-
ence this Saturday, when Michi-
gan's Wolverines tangle with the
Badgers of Wisconsin in Camp
Randall Stadium.
The two teams show a surpris-
ing similarity in many of the
offensive phases according to Big
Nine statistics recently released.
Each team has played four games
with Wisconsin averaging 28.5
AP Poll Lands
Mann, Sickels
NEW YORK, Nov. 12 - (A) -
Chuck Bednarik, Center on the
University of Pennsylvania's un-
beaten untied football team, todayj
won this week's award as lineman
of the week in the Associated Press!
Two Michigan gridders were
also given mention in the poll.-
Quentin Sickles played a superb!
game at guard for the Wolverines.
He was cited for "tearing the In-j
diana backfield to pieces."
Bob Mann was given recognition,
for his performance at end against
the Hoosiers.
Also honored by the poll was
Notre Dame's stellar 'tackle and
All-American candidate George
Connor whose defensive play
against Army in the crucial game
last week was instrumental in the
Irish victory.
Lou Mihajlovich, Indiana end
and the Western Conference's
leading pass receiver last year, was'
nominated for his fine all-around'
play against Michigan. It was his'
pass catching that kept the Hoos-
iers in the contest when their ace
George Talliaferro was injured. '

points per contest compared with
27.7 for the Wolverines. Michigan,*
however, has the edge in average
ground gained, 352.2 to 309.7 for
the Badgers.
The Wolverines top the Con-
ference in five other depart-
ments, those of first downs,
yards per game by passing,
rushing per play, overall offense
per play and highest yards per
Individually, too, the Wolverines
and Badgers are close together,'
with Jack Weisenburger and
Clarence Self topping the rest of
the Big Nine runners with 7.5
yards per rush apiece. On total
yards gained, only one yard separ-
ates the two, with Self leading 325
to 324.
The key man in Coach Harry
Stuhldreher's Notre Dame box sys-
tem, however, is Earl "Jug" Gir-
ard, the triple-threat left half-
back. Girard has completed 16 out
of 36 passes for 273 yards and run
for 172 yards in 56 attempts as
well as punting the ball for an av-
erage of 39 yards a kick.
It is in the passing depart-
ment that Michigan shows a de-
'cided edge statistically, Wis-
consin having no passer equal to
Chappuis, who ranks second in
passing averages to Perry Moss
of Illinois. Chappuis tops the
Big Nine in total offense.
In spite of the Wolverines' edge
in offense Coach Herbert O.
"Fritz" Crisler sent his squad
through stiff drills yesterday at
Ferry Field under cloudy skies and
with a cold wind blowing across
the field.
The defensive unit scrimmaged
against a white-shirted Jayvee
outfit, which went through many
of Wisconsin's plays. A few times
the defense appeared confused by
the quick opening "T" formation
employed by the Badgers, but for
the main the Jayvees were roughly
handled by the varsity.
After scrimmage the offense
stepped in and ran primarily
through pass plays with Chap-
puis doing most of the tossing.
Don Kuick worked out with the
second backfield unit replacing
dimiutive Hank Fonde who was
injured in scoring the final
touchdown to the Indiana game.
The practice wound up with a
quartet of speedy 150-pound backs
running plays against the varsity
ends to give them practice in cut-
ting down the fleet backs they'll
meet Saturday.
An important meeting of the
'M' Club is scheduled for 7:30
p.m. tonight in the new M club
Room at Yost Field House.

Alpha Tau Omega won the In-
ter-fraternity touch football
championship, and Greene House
walked off with the residence halls
toga last night under the lights at
Wines Field.
Playing before a crowd of some
300 students, the ATO's outlasted
Phi Gamma Delta to take the
Greek letter crown by a 13-6 mar-
gin, while Greene House had to re-
sort to an extra quarter total
yardage victory after they had
finished the regulation session tied
6-6 with Michigan House.
Blanchard Sparks ATO
Bruce Blanchard, ATO fullback,
was the big difference between the
fraternity teams. He did all of the
ATO's passing, punting, and car-
ried a good share of the ground
game on his shoulders.,He was
personally responsible for all i13
of his team's points.
After an exchange of punts in
the second period, the Phi Gams
found themselves back on their
own thirty yard line.
Alberti dropped back to punt
and got off a long one to the ATO

35 yard line. Blanchard gathered
it in on the run and galloped 65
yards to score the first touchdown.
Smith Intercepts Pass
In the third period, Bob Smith
intercepted an Alberti pass on the
Fiji 13 yard line, and this time
Blanchard broke over center to go
the distance for the score. He per-
sonally ran the extra point across.
The Phi Gams received and
marched straight down the field
to score. Dale Coenen took a fif-
teen yard pass from Alberti to
rack up the six points, and that
was the ball game.
Greene House came from behind
to score their victory. In the sec-
ond quarter, Bud Reeme, Michi-
gan House tailback tossed a fif-
teen yard pass to Walt Keeler, and
Keeler romped 50 yards to score
and give the West Quad men a 6
point lead which they held at
However, in the third canto, Al
Nief intercepted a Reemes pass
on the Michigan House 12 yard
line, and Wilfred Baker tossed to
George Jackson for the tieing
