Michigan Teams Boast
15 Conference Titles

Feature the New
Through the "Complexion Choice"
in our Knit-Tex Topcoats, you
now have several different blends
of your color to choose from.
Of course, Knit-Tex is a most
wearable topcoat-serves you
almost 10 months of the year
because it's warm enough for cold
days, yet light enough for
mild days. On wet days, it sheds
"drizzles" on all days, it resists
wrinkles-seldom needs pressing.

Now that the 1947 Wolverine
football team has clinched the
Western Conference champion-
ship, it marks the 15th time that
the Wolverines have finished on
top or tied for the championship
and the sixth time that Michigan
has won it alone.
Michigan's f irst undisputed
championship came in the third
year of the Conference's history,
1898, when the Wolverines,
coached by Ferbert compiled a 3-0
record in the seven-school confer-
ence, edging out Chicago who had
a 3-1 record.
The Wolverines' football star
went into an eclipse until 1901
when the immortal Fielding H.
Yost took over the post of head
football coach. It was the first of
his famous point-a-minute teams
and the only Michigan team ever
to go through a season unbeaten,
untied and unscored upon.
The Maize and Blue took the
crown that year with a 4 and 0
record. Captained by Neil Snow,
the Wolverines went out to the

Sickels Cited
Again in .Poll
NEW YORK, Nov. 19-('P)-For
the third time this season, a center
has been selected in the Asso-
ciated Press poll as football's line-
man of the week.
The honor goes this time to
Joe Watson of Rice Institute at
Houston, Texas.
Michigan was again represent-
ed in this week's selections. Quen-
tin Sickels, who was also cited in
the poll last week, was chosen
this week as the outstanding guard
of the nation.

Rose Bowl and in the inaugural
of that event, smothered the
Stanford Indians, 49-0.
Michigan repeated in 1902, as
they went through the conference
year winning five and not suffer-
ing a single loss.
Michigan and Minnesota tied
for the crown in 1902 each win-
ning three, while losing none
and tying one, marking the third
straight year that Yost's team
had finished on the top of the
The Wolverines slipped to sec-
ond the following year and did
not win a championship until after
they had returned to the Confer-
ence. Michigan dropped out of
what was then the Big Ten in 1907
and did not return to the fold un-
til 1917.
It wasn't until 1925, however,
that the Wolverines found their
way to the top again. The 1925
championship squad was
sparked by the famous Benny to
Bennie passing combination of
Friedman to Oosterbaan.
This duo returned again in 1926
to lead the Maize and Blue to an-
other victory and their last for
Fielding Yost who retired at the
end of the 1926 season.
It wasn't until 1932 that the
Wolverines won again, taking the
title with a six and nothing record
under the tutelage of Harry Kipke.
In 1933, Michigan repeated
the previous year's history by
coming out on top again, this
time winning five, losing none,
but tying one.
After 1933, Wolverine football
fortunes dropped and it wasn't
until Fritz Crisler took over the
reins in 1938 that they improved.
The Minnesota jinx held Michi-
gan back several times, until in
1943, Michigan tied Purdue for
the crown, their last one until this
Chikopi Alums
Form Nucleus
Of Tank quad
There's a boy's camp 170 miles
north of Toronto, Ontario that
has probably done more for Mich-
igan swimming teams than any
other institution has done, for this
is the location of Camp Chikopi,
Matt Mann's summer camp.
Graduates Form Impressive List
The list of graduates from Chi-
kopi would fill a book of swim-
ming immortals, for since its open-
ing in 1920, Mann-handled swim-
mers have gone on to become out-
standing natators in colleges
throughout the world.
Matt considers Johnny Schmie-
Ler of his 1931-33 squads and
Harry Holiday of this year's team
as the best men he's ever coached,
and both of these stars got their
start at Chikopi.
Chikopi Alums Aplenty
This year's Michigan squad, like
many of Mann's teams is studded
with Chikopi alumni. In addition
to Holiday, Mann has free-stylers
Dick Weinberg, Gus Stager, Matt
Mann III, and Tommy Coates, all
of whom attended Chikopi.
Bob Sohl, one of the best breast-
strokers in the country, Bill Up-
thegrove, and Charley Moss, make
up the breaststroke contingent of
Chikopi alumni on the Wolverine
squad. While Art Johnson teams
with Holiday to represent the
backstrokers prepped by the staff
of the camp.

also has a field goal to his credit,
did the place kicking as usual.

his customary role of punter.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Nov. 19
---Hope that George Taliaferro
would be able to carry the ball
for Indiana against Purdue neared
the vanishing point today as the
injured halfback ran eight plays
with the second team and then
had to leave the field. Chest in-
juries hampered both his running
and his breathing.
Coach Bo McMillin gave the
team a defensive workout aimed
at stopping Purdue's halfbacks,
