the biggest problem facing any
coach, and Vic Heyliger, hockey
mentor, has begun to have his
worries before the opening game

These facts bring to mind only
one question. Just how much foot-

Innes and Jack MacDonald both
presented different obstacles to

Crisler's Wolverines tangle with a
once-defeated Badger eleven.
To most Conference followers
who had tagged Michigan, Illinois,
and Ohio State as the teams to
beat in this year's Big Nine com-
petition, the mid-November ap-
pearance of Wisconsin as a threat
to Michigan's march to its first
undisputed championship in 15
years is nothing short of a mir-
The game with the Badgers
was looked at as a welcome
breather for Michigan before
it played host to Ohio State in
what might well have been the
title deciding contest. In fact,
after Michigan won from Illi-
nois the race was supposed to
be over except for the neces-
sity of playing out the schedule.
The one factor that most ex-
perts chose to ignore in making
their selections for Conference
honors has proven to be the de-
ciding one in Wisconsin's rise
from a bottom finish last year to
their present position as the num-
ber one obstacle in front of the
This factor is the team spirit
which has manifested itself in
victories over Purdue, Iowa,
Northwestern, Yale and Mar-
quette. Perhaps the best ex-
ample of the Badger's high mor-
ale is to 1e found in the team's
quick recovery from a stunningj
48-7 setback at the hands of
California which enabled it to
hand a previously unbeaten
Yale eleven its first defeat.!
Coach Harry Stuhldreher's
squad has continued to ride
high after that conquest and
reached its peak last week when
Iowa was routed 46 to 14.
Wisconsin is ready for Mich-
igan and will be out to stop all
that Coach Crisler and the Wol-
verines can throw against them.
It is doubtful whether the Bad-
ger's hopes for a victory over
Michigan have ever been higher
than they are at present. Not since
the Wisconsin team arrived in'
Ann Arbor in 1944 seeking to win
that year's game for the memory
of one of their players, Allan Sha-
fer, who suffered a fatal injury
in a game with Iowa, have the
Badgers pointed so much for a
Coach "Fritz" Crisler and the
entire Michigan team are aware
of the excellent performances
of the Wisconsin eleven and are
taking no chances of allowing
the Badgers to win on spirit
alone. Today, as well as all of
the practice sessions this week
the squad has kept the threat
of Coach Stuhldreher's well-
balanced team uppermost in
their minds and have shone
enthusiasm in practice not
equalled since this year's game
The team once again worked
on scoring plays that might see
action against Wisconsin this
weekend. Coach Crisler and his
assistants also worked on defense
in anticipation of stopping a Bad-
ger attack that has enabled the
Badgers from Madison to score
from any position on the field.

Wolverine swimming coach.
Matt Mann, appears headed for
another successful season if the
past performances of the array of
stars on this year's squad can be
held for anything.
Mann is working out his talent-
laden charges daily at the I-M
pool and already many of the
tanksters are rounding into top
shape. Led by Captain Harry Holi-
day, the, Michigan mermen have
a double incentive this season.
Primarily they're out to avenge
last 'year's loss to Ohio State and
bring the Conference crown back
to Ann Arbor.
But equally important and in
the backs of all their minds is
the possible invitations to be a
member of the United States
Olympic Swimming squad that
will be chosen next Spring.
Back for another record-break-
ing year is the medley relay team,
composed of Holiday, Bob Sohl
and Dick Weinberg. This trio
holds three of the four possible
world's records in this event, and
holds the American mark in the
The Wolverine squad appears
well-fixed in every event, hav-
ing lost only Alex Canja and
Wally Stewart from last sea-
son's aggregation. Diving again
seems to be the weak point of
the team, but with All-American
Gil Evans, Ralph Triiborn and
Tommy O'Neil returning there
is a definite possibility of ser-
iously challenging Ohio State's
domination of this event.
Among the freestylers Coach
Mann seems to be well fortified.
In addition to Weinberg, he'll
have such stars as Matt Mann

MADISON, Wis., Nov. 13-(A)-
Michigan's football team may be
the "Monsters of the Midwest"
and the "Wily Wolverines" to a lot
of experts, but to a Wisconsin
squad readying for Saturday's bat-
tle for the Big Nine Title the su-
perlatives don't mean a thing.
"We'll concede 'em nothing,"
halfback Clarence Self, the Badg-
ers' leading ground gainer, de-
clared today. "This is one we want
to win and we think we can."
Self spoke for the entire Badger
ball club, which is waiting for the
Western Conference's showdown
game before a full house of 45,000
without the slightest trace of awe.
The Badgers, and the coaching
staff concurs, are sharp, sharper
than they've been all season.
