iZe all of his backs with the ex-
ception of right half Self. Girard,
Dreyer, who returns to action to-
day, Blackbourne, and Wink are
all competent passers.
A weakness in pass defense has
been Wisconsin's chief problem all
season, but the Badgers have been
working on it all week.
Up front, Wisconsin fans claim
they have, an All-American in Bob
"Red" Wilson, a 205-pound cen-
ter. Wilson and Bob Weiseke, his
understudy, have been a tough
line-backing duo all year, and an
interesting game sidelight will be
the duel between this pair and
Michigan's talented defenders Dan
Dworsky and Dick Kempthorn.
This battle stacks up at least on
j paper as a terrific offensive duel
between the Big Nine's number
one and two scoring powers. The
Wolverines lead the Conference in
total offense with the Badgers
second. In the passing depart-
ment, Michigan boasts a wide
margin. And t'he Wolverines are
the Big Nine's top defensive team
with the Badgers ranking third.
Along Betting Boulevard, the
Wolverines are rated a town
touchdown favorite over the Badg-
ers in today's showdown battle.

CINCINNATI, Nov. 14-(').-A
year's suspension from baseball
will be imposed by Commissioner
A. B. Chandler on any one who
violates the rule prohibiting the
signing of high school players, lie

In the past the penalty has

been $500, with the player being
declared a free agent and the
club prohibited forever from ac-
quiring his services. The new pen-

Commissioner said in a directive
to all major and minor league
He also told club officials to
re-read the rule prohibiting ne-
gotiations with high school boys
and said "attention is again spe-

today's title-deciding clash at Madison.


Football Fever Reaches New
Ileights Out Wisconsin Way

According to several reports,
football fever has reached a new
high in Madison, Wisc., where the
Wolverines and the Badgers col-
lide this afternoon in a title-de-
ciding clash of the Big Nine.
Coach Harry Stuhldreher of the
underdog eleven believes that his
Badgers are ready for the high-
geared Wolverines, who boast an
11-game winning streak.
Said Mr. Stuhidreher: "We'll
be ready, physically and men-
tally. We just have an under-
standable eagerness for the
The Wisconsin coach believes
that he has planned an offensive
attack which he hopes will enable
his line to open up the holes that
will give his talented backs a
chance to utilize their speed in
the open.
The second-longest rivalry in
the Big Nine will be extended to-
day at Ohio State Stadium as
Illinois meets the badly-battered
Bucks for the 34th straight year.
* * *
Unbeaten Notre Dame, the na-
tions top-ranked collegiate eleven,
will be heavily favored to grab its
seventh straight victory against
Northwestern in their 24th foot-
ball meeting before a capacity
crowd at Evanston today.
Coach Leahy, who has spent

most of the week denying pub-
lished reports that he had of-
fered to resign as boss of Notre
Dame's powerhouse eleven, ex-
pects limited service from five
Irish players and none at all
from half-back Coy McGee be-
cause of injuries sustained in
last week's 27-7 romp over
Iowa, five times beaten this sea-
son, closes its season in a home
battle with Minnesota. Purdue's
Boilermakers, 10-8 victors over
Pitt last year on Hank Stream's
last-minute field goal, figures to
beat the Panthers gain this after-
noon minus such delayed heroics.
Marquette's Hilltoppers and
Indiana's Hoosiers, both scram-
bling for a victory here and
there to keep them from losing
more than half their games, will
also clash on the grid.

In the East, all eyes are focused
on Franklin Field at Philadelphia
where the unbeaten Quakers of
Pennsylvania, currently ranked as
the third best team in the nation,
will take on twice-beaten and
once-tied Army. Army is on the
comeback trail after dropping a
27-7 decision to Notre Dame last

Seek Third Triumph
In MorningTussle
Michigan's jayvee eleven will try
to push their average over the
.500 mark this morning when they
tangle with the Wisconsin "B"
squad on Madison's Camp Randall
practice field.'
Shaking off the offensive leth-
argy which had plagued them in
the first Michigan State battle
and in the Northwestern game,
the "B" Wolverines looked sharp
in their attack as well as defense
last week as they toppled MSC,
13-7, for their second win of the
Holgate Confident
With the aid of the additional
drill on offensive tactics which the
team went through in practice
this week, Assistant Coach Gib
Holgate expects his squad to giveI
its best performance of the sea-
The Badgers are equally inter-
ested in breaking into the win
column since they have dropped
their last three in a row to Illi-
nois, Purdue, and Northwestern.
Line-up Announced
Coach Holgate's tentative line-
'up reads as follows:
Dick Brown, John Linville, or
Hugh Mack, ends (Dan Frank,
starter at end last week, did not
make the trip because of an in-
jury); Dave Gomberg, Dick
Strauss, or John Eizonas, tackles;
Al Fitch,. Ray Kulpinski, or John
Maturo, guards; Don Nichols or
John Padjen, center.
Irv Small, who will act as team'
captain today, quarterback; Pren-
tice Ryan or Al Noble, right-half;
Don Jones or John Wilcox, left-
half; and Jahn Combes, fullback.;
Bone Chips Send
Di-ag to Hospital
BALTIMORE, Nov. 14 --(P) -
Joltin' Joe DiMaggio, who has
spent almost as much time in hos-
pitals as on the ball field, let it be:
known today he played practically
all last season in the New York
Yankee centerfield with a sore
throwing arm that was good for
only one peg a game.
The Yankee slugger is back in
Johns Hopkins hospital to have
a chip removed from the ailing el-
bow. While here he also is under-
going all sorts of tests in an ef-
fort to find out just what has
caused him a seemingly endless
series of physical ailments.

As a result, the little Wolver-
i.es moved into a first place tie
with the Badgers in the 'Little
Big Nine' Race.
Doing a complete about face
from their sad 13-2 loss to Ohio
State last Saturday, Coach Cliff
Keene's midgets rolled at will to
to three touchdowns in the first
half and then sloshed through
rain sleet, snow and ankle-high
mud forsarscoreless second half.
The story of Michigan's upset
victory was written by its for-
ward wall which all but pushed
the Badgers into Lake Michi-
gan. It set up the first score by
charging through to recover a

Wisconsin fumble on the Badger
After two plays got nowhere, Ed
Rosatti cracked over center to the,
two. Charlie Ketterer then exe-
cuted a beautiful quarterback
sneak to go over standing up. He
also kicked the extra point and
the Wolverines led, 7-0.
Early in the second quarter,
Ketterer climaxed a 66 yard sus-
tained drive with a six yard pass
to Ed Morey in the right flat
and Morey went over with no
one near him. The pass from
center on the try for extra point
was no good and the score stood
at 13-0.
Two minutes later they started a
64-yard drive which wound up the
scoring for the evening. Paced by
Gene Englander, who romped 42
of these yards in three carries,
they rolled to the Wisconsin 21.
John Wilcox went off tackle to the
nine and two plays later took a
lateral from Ketterer on the six
and went over.

Illinois Tops
In Conference
CHICAGO, Nov. 14- '(/P) -Don
Gehrmann of Wisconsin, pacing
the field by 150 years, won the Big
Nine cross-country meet today'
with a record-breaking time of 20
minutes, 26.4 seconds.
The team championship, on the
basis of the five best individual
performances, went to Illinois with
47 points. Wisconsin, which
shared the title last year with In-
diana, placed second with 52
points, followed by Indiana and
Purdue, tied for third, with 64
points and Iowa with 103.
Minnesota did not figure in the
scoring with only two entries,
while Michigan, Ohio State and
Northwestern were not represent-
Gehrmann, Big Nine outdoor
mile champion, finished with a
rousing sprint to chop more than
eight seconds off the old record
for the four-mile grind of 20:34.7,
,set by Wally Mehl, also of Wiscon-
sin, in 1939. Gehrmann was sec-
ond in last year's meet.
