Michigan's hot and cold Jayvee
squad closes its season's play at 3
p.m. this Friday against Ohio
State's 'B" team on Ferry Field.
Coach George Ceithaml's grid-
ders are seeking a .500 average
with a present record of two wins
and three losses. However, Ohio
State has a strong team and
promises trouble for the Jayvees.
To stress All-Around Play
In drills this week the team will
be working to perfect their all
around play. Last Saturday's af-
fair, since it was played in ankle
deep mud, failed to show any ma-
jor weaknesses.
Coach Gib Holgate, who han-
dled the Jayvees, cited the defen-
sive play of Center John Padjen.
Guards Alan Fitch and John Ma-
turo, and end John Linville also
were outstanding on the line.
Combes, Small Mentioned
In the backfield Holgate lauded
the offensive play of John Combes
and said that Irv Small operated
very well in the quarterback post.
As for this weekend's contest,
Holgate said that all he hoped for
was good weather. The last two
games have been more a battle of
the elements than a football game
and has not given the team a
chance to show what it can really

Meets Tonight
An organizational meeting of1

uled for 7:30 p.m. tonight in the
All students, whether or not
they have had previous skiing ex-
perience, are invited to attend
because plans for weekend trips
will be discussed in conjunction
with instruction for beginners. If
a large group turns out, it will be
easier and less expensive to get
necessary facilities at various win-
ter resorts.
Although there had been no of-
ficial backing, matches were held
with Michigan State last year and
probably will be held again. In the
future, if enough good skiers come
through, an attempt will be made
to secure University sanction for
intercollegiate competition.

Duily Sports Staif
IT'S PLEASANT when you don't have to say nice things about your
football team but can just sit back and let other people say them.
especially when the other people, as Mr. Runyon used to say, have
knowledge about the game which is more than somewhat. Such a
situation took place last Saturday.
The people in question were a pair of the nation's top foot-
ball observers, Norman Sper, who picks the annual All-American
team for Liberty Magazine, and Francis J. Powers, of the Chicago
Daily News.
Sper had just enjoyed-and that was the word he used, his
first look at Michigan. What impressed him most was the remarkable
poise of the entire team.
The poise and precision of their ball handling and execution
surprised and delighted him. "Once," Sper said, "the ball changed
hands so far in the backfield, that I stood up in the Press Box
and yelled 'My God.' On that particular play the wet slippery
ball went back to Weisenburger, who handed it to Yerges who
flipped a lateral to Chappuis-and it happened so fast it was
difficult to follow."
POWERS AND SPER both agreed that quarterback Howard Yerges
choice of plays was almost uncanny. "He continually set them
up and knocked them down," Powers commented. The two men also
agreed that Bump Elliott was one of the most versatile backs they
had seen all season.
Sper said that Mississippi's Charlie Conerly was the only
one he had seen who did as many things as well as Bump.
"The amazing thing to me," Powers said, "is the tremendous
amount of offense this club has been able to handle. When you
consider that Crisler's basic single wing to the right is a tricky
intricate formation in itself and then realize that it is spiced
with two other equally deceptive variations, it's downright amaz-
"AFTER THE Wolverines throw everything under the sun at you
from their basic formation, they start over from the T. Then
when it looks like they've shown everything as they did against
Minnesota, they line up in a single wing to the left for the first
time all year and Derricotte carries the ball for the first time all
afternoon and scores a touchdown."
As for Crisler himself, Sper maintains that he has far out-
stripped his coaching rivals in his use of the free substitution
rule. By dividing his squad into offensive and defensive units,
each man gets to show only his strength to the opposition.
Sper singled out Dom Tomasi for special praise. The 180-pound-
er's brilliant blocking was very much in evidence all afternoon.
Both men agreed that the expected duel of speed between the1
two elevens had failed to materialize. Wisconsin may have been fast
in comparison with Iowa, but in over-all speed they looked far slower'
than the Wolverines.

Incidentally, Ollie Cline, Ohio
State's most prolific back, pos-
sesses a rushing mark of 216 yards
in 47 dashes from scrimmage.
The Big Nine scoring race is
still a toss-up with Bump Elliott
of Michigan, Lisle Blackbourn
of Wisconsin, and Art Murakow-
ski of Northwestern all dead-
locked for the lead at 30 points
.Hawaii Bound;
MSC Eleven
Takes to Air
Spartans Undaunted
After Rough Flights
EAST LANSING, Nov. 18-(A)-
Members of Michigan State's foot-
ball squad proved again they could
take it after they bounced back
for a successful season following a
55-0 thrashing by Michigan.
Suckers for Punishment
Another examole of the Spar-
tans' ability to absorb punishment
and come back for more is the de-
cision to fly the squad 18,000 miles
on their round trip to Honolulu for
the football game with the Uni-
versity of Hawaii.
The MSC football team had an
earlier and unfortunate taste of
air travel on their trip to meet
Washington State at Pullman,
Wash. The flight bumped into
some rough weather over the
Rocky Mountains and 30 of the 36
squad members were deathly ill
before they got out of the plane.
Wise Guy
One gagster remarked "Who
wants to fly to Hawaii?" as he
stepped out of the plane at the end
cf the Washington trip but only
wry smiles rewarded his wit as the
football players fought their un-
easy stomachs. Captain Bob Mc-
Curry was unable to play following
his airsickness and several other
squad members still felt the ef-
fects of the trip as they went into
the game.
The Spartans beat Washington
State 21-7 and a smooth air trip
home made the players forget
some of their distaste for flying
halfway around the world for the
last game of the season.
