Big Nine
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 13--(P)
-Wes Fesler had fullback trouble
at Ohio State today as his Buck-
eyes prepared to meet Illinois here
With both Joe Whisler and Pete
Perini, his Nos. 2 and 3 fullbacks,
on the injured roster, the Buckeye
coach readied fourth-string full-
back Chuck Renner and fifth-
stringer Glenn Oliver as replace-
ments for Ollie Cline.
Cline can't go the route both
offensively and defensively, so
Fesler apparently planned to run
Renner and Oliver as offensive re-
placements and Renner and left
halfback Rod Swinehart as defen-
sive reserves.

Lafayette, Ind., Nov. 13-(/P)-
Purdue worked on both offense
and defense today as the Boiler-
makers wound up heavy work for
the Pittsburg game Saturday, and
Coach Stu Holcomb warned his
secondary defense men that Pitt
would have three passers in the
lineup at the same time.
Offensively the team worked on
sharper blocking for its hard run-
ning halfbacks, Harry Szulborski
and Norbert Adams.
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Nov. 18

worked at quarterback for Indi-
ana this season, was named today
to alternate with Hugh (Knocky)
McKinnis at left halfback and to

George Karstens was the offen-
sive center today, subbing for Joe

Michigan Faces BadOers
In Are Contest Toni'ht

An injury riddled lightweight
eleven boarded the train this
morning for Madison, Wisconsin
where the half pint Wolverines
will be after their second win of
the season when they tangle with
the Badgers tonight at 7:30 under
the lights.
Need Win
Michigan will have to make this
one a winner to stay in the run-
ning for a share of the "Little Big
Nine" crown. With a decisive
33-0 win over Illinois and a 13-2
setback at the hands of Ohio State
on their record, the Wolverines
will square off against an unde-
feated Wisconsin eleven which
boasts wins over both the Illini
and the Buckeyes.
Line Injuries
Last week's game with Illinois
literally knocked the middle right
out of Coach Cliff Keene's for-

ward wall. First string guards Don
O'Connell and George Hurrell will
both sit this one out as a result of
injuries received against the Il-
lini. O'Connell. a standout per-
fermer in the Michigan line may
be lost for the season if his knee
injury proves to be a torn liga-
ment. Also out of action for the
Badger tussle is end Brad McKee.
Line coach George Allen has been
forced to do some fancy juggling
this week to whip his line in shape
to face the high stepping Badg-
Sloppy ball handling under even
sloppier weather conditions cost
the Wolverines some excellent
scoring opportunities last week.
With these difficulties ironed out,
the midget backfield is ready to
roll with the same precision that
^nabled them to run up 33 points
against Illinois.

Cow'rles Sends VariyCagers
Michigan Varsity cagers, under lined field house court and the
the direction of Coach Ozzie new glass backboards.
Cowles held their first scrimmage After a practice in shooting,
esterday, utilizing the newly- running, passing, and other fun-
damentals yesterday the squad
has beome somewhat used to
the new court. The field house
floor is large enough to allow
practice games whereas the
court in the I-M building was
very small and restricted the
team to a large degree.
The new backboards, just in-
stalled, present a definite con-
trast to the old wooden back-
stops. Glancing at the backboard,
ROM one is somewhat surprised to find
Oa s fonly a black ring with a net hang-
ing from it. However after some
practice it will become probably
as commonplace to shoot at that
piece of glass as at the usual
GABARDINES wooden boards.
Starting Monday, young Wol-
verine cagers will be given a
COVERTS chance to show their wares as
they try out for the freshman bas-
TWEEDS ketball team before Coach Joe
FLEECES Vancisin in the T-M gym.
On Monday the tryouts will just
warm up, shooting, passing, run-
ning and practicing other funda-

With the limb badiy bent but
still unbroken, this football fore-
caster inches closer to the end for
another round of gridiron guesses
in the hope of improving an aver-
age that stands at .792 on 439 cor-
rect predictions and 115 misses:
Michigan vs. Wisconsin - By
their antics of recent weeks, the
Badgers have transformed what
was to have been a breeze for
Michigan into Saturday's major
attraction, with the Big Nine title
at stake. But if Bob Chappuis
can't dent the tough Wisconsin
line, he should be able to penetrate
a weak Badger pass defense. One
hefty vote for Michigan.
Army vs. Pennsylvania-The
Quakers have had some setups on
their schedule but they dumped
Virginia out of the all-victorious
ranks and manhandled Columbia,
which broke Army's streak. A con-
fident vote for Pennsylvania.
Georgia-Tech vs. Alabama -
Tech is all-victorious but 'Bama
has come up fast since two early
season defeats and this game
rates as a toss-up. Strictly on a
hunch, Alabama.
Penn State vs. Navy - Here's
our sleeper for the week. All vic-
torious Penn State, with the coun-

try's best defensive record, is a 61 /
point favorite to take a Navy club
that has won only once. In an up-
set, Navy.
Texas Christian vs. Texas-The
winner can latch on to second
place in the Southwest confer-
ence. One big vote for Texas.
Notre Dame vs. Northwestern-
The Irish have a let-down com-
ing after their triumph over Army
but there's no chance of their
dropping far enough to trip over a
so-so Northwestern club. The us-
ual ballot for Notre Dame.
Washington vs. UCLA - If
the UCLANS don't try to look
ahead to their important Nov. 22
struggle with Southern Cal, they
should have no trouble. A kindly
nod to UCLA.
Arkansas vs. Southern Method-
ist-But SMU. has negotiated its
biggest hurdle and is heading for
the Cotton Bowl. Southern Meth-
Holy Cross vs. Columbia-'Til
Rossides breaks his arm, Columbia.
