By virtue of the Wolverine vic-
tory over the Buckeyes and Wis-
consin's 20-12 win over Illinois
during the past week-end, Mich-
igan and the Badgers completed
the initial season of 150-pound
football in a virtual tie for the
Big Nine championship.
150 Pound Football 'Successful'
The Wolverines demonstrated
their superiority in the Confer-
ence by running up big scores
against their three other confer-
ence opponents, defeating the co-
champion Wisconsin 20-0 on a
slushy field, Ohio State 39-0, and
Illinois 33-0.
Their lone defeat was at the
hands of Ohio State early in the
season in the first of a home and
home series at Ann Arbor played
during a driving rainstorm, 13-2.
The "big experiment" which
brought lightweight football to
the Western Conference has been
termed by all concerned as highly
successful and is a sure bet to
return again next season with the
possible addition of several teams.

... Michigan's 'most valuable'
Bump Elliott
Voted Team'S
'Mast Valuable'
Tops Wolverine List
In Scoring with 9 TDs
Chalmers "Bump" Elliott was
voted the "most valuable player"
on this season's Michigan eleven
by his teammates last night.
Top Scorer
The sorrell-topped right half-
back from Bloomington, Ill., led
the Wolverine scoring list with 54
points and captured' the Big Nine
scoring title with 36 tallies.
Carrying the ball 68 times for
439 net yards, the swivel-hipped
Elliott earned a 6.46 per try rush-
ing average. He caught 16 passes
for 318 yards, two resulting in
Wolverine touchdowns, and in
Conference play he snarred 14
passes which gained 303 yards and
the championship in that depart-
Stars on Offense and Defense
One of the most versatile per-
formers in the Big Nine cham-
pionship backfield, Elliott was a
workhorse on both offense and de-
fense. While protecting his defen-
sive territory, he intercepted five
passes which halted opponents
scoring drives andadded 92 yards
to his own total. In the Illinois
tilt the Bumper broke up a desper-
ation aerial attack in the last few
minutes of the game by hauling
in an Illini pass.
In addition, Michigan's all-
Conference wingback completed
two out of four throws for 55
yards, thus giving him a net total
of 494 yards accumulated in 72
St. Louis Sold
To Hannegan
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 25-(A)-The
St. Louis Cardinals and their far-
flung minor league holdings were
sold today to Postmaster General
Robert E. Hannegan and Fred M.
Saigh, Jr., St. Louis attorney.
Sam Breadon, who invested $2,-
000 in the National League club as
a "civic gesture" 30 years ago and
built one of baseball's strongest
organizations, announced the sale
at a press conference.
At the same time, Hannegan's
resignation from his cabinet post
to head the Cardinal organization
was announced in Washington to
become effective Dec. 1.

M Awa(irded
Five Positioms
On UP Team
Michigan dominated the United
Press All-Big Nine teams as it
placed five men on the first eleven,
two on the second, while four
linemen received honorable men-
tion for their play with the Con-
ference champions.
Almost the entire backfield is
manned by Wolverines with How-
ard Yerges at quarterback and
Bob Chappuis and Bump Elliott
in the halfback slots. Fleet footed
Bob Mann was awarded an end
berth on the first squad line with
teammate Bill Pritula, outstanding
offensive tackle.
The second eleven found Len
Ford holding down one flank be-
cause of his remarkable defensive
work, while spinning Jack Weis-
enburger was selected at fullback.
Receiving honorable mention
were Captain Bruce Hilkene and
Al Wistert, tackles; Dom Tomasi.

Ch talk up another string of
laurels for Michigan's undefeated,
antied Big Nine football cham-
The Rose-Bowl bound Wolver-
ine machine, which romped to
nine successive victories (six of
them in Conference play) this
year, was officially acclaimed yes-
terday as the Big Nine's leading
offensive and defensive power, ac-
cording to complete team figures
released by the Western Confer-
ence Service Bureau.
In the six Conference tussles,
Fritz Crisler saw his power-laden
charges average 379.3 yards per
game, total offense, and 5.8 yards
per play, running and passing.
This stands as a peak performance
by any team in modern Confer-
ence annals. .
Further breakdown of statis-
tics shows that Michigan's spinner
offense averaged 47.7 running
plays and 17 passing plays per
Conference game and averaged 5.0
yards and 8.0 yards, respectively,
each time. In compiling its record
total offense mark, the Wolver-
ines averaged 242.5 yards on the
ground and 136.8 via the air lanes.
Wins Keep Mounting
Climaxing their regular season
Saturday with a 21-0 triumph
over a stubborn Ohio State eleven,
the Maize and Blue thus boosted

its all-time Conference record to
230 victories, 151 defeats and 61
ties. Its all-time, all-games rec-
ord shows 377 successes, 107 set-
backs, and 21 deadlocks.
Only a few noteworthy marks
slipped away from the 1947 edi-
tion of the Wolverines. Illinois,
sparked by the short, accurate
pitching of quarterback Perry
Moss, compiled a season passing
average of .509 while Michigan
rated second best with a .471
Fourth in Punting
Wisconsin, with two excellent
punters in Earl (Jug) Girard and
T. A. (Tex) Cox, finished with the
best team punting average, 39.4.
In this department, Michigan, em-
ploying Jack Weisenburger's
strong right foot most of the time,
finished fourth in the Conference
with an average punt 37.0.
Indiana, despite its second di-
vision finish, limited opponents
to the fewest first downs, 9.7 per
game, and punted the fewest
times, 3.9 per game.
Michigan's alert gridders were
most effective in the pass-inter-
ception department.
And the Wolverines piled up
more points in Conference appear-

Coach Vic Heyliger put his
hockey charges through one of
the most intensive scrimmages of
the pre-season practice sessions
yesterday in final preparation for
the invasion by the Detroit Red
Wings Friday night.
The former Chicago Black-
hawker announced his three of-
fensive lines for the exhibition
match, but emphasized that the
men named would not necessar-
ily hold those positions for the
rest of the season. "The boys'
performance against the Red
Wings will help me decide on
my starting team for the first
-game of the season," Heyliger
Wally Gacek, who has scored an
average of one goal a game in the
last seventeen contests, Al Ren-
frew and Gordie MacMillan, who
both netted a team high of 38
points last year, will make up the
first line. Veterans Bill Jacobson
and Ted Greer team up with new-
comer Owen McArdle to form the
second Wolverine line. The third
offensive trio will be composed of
Sam Stedman, a two-year man,
Leonard Brumm and Al Nadeau,
with Paul Fontana the single
Connie Hill, captain of the
Michigan squad for the third
year, will be at the starting de-
fensive positions, with Dick
Starrak, Herb Upton, and husky
Bob Marshall, all experienced
defensemen, ready for the call
from Heyliger.

Jack MacInnes, outstanding
goalie in the 1945-46 campaign,
will probably see action, but in
holding with the arrangements
made between Red Wing Man-
ager Jack Adams and Heyliger,
he will only be used by the De-

The intercollegiate program,

Saturday noon. Winners will be

In the two previous races this
year, the Michigan and Denison
Invitational Trophy Regattas, the
Michigan' crews twice emerged

one point margin that now sep-
arates them from the rest of the
National Hockey League flock.
In the past two games, the red
shirts have trounced the Chi-
cago Blackhawks, Heyliger's
former team, by 8-5 and 9-2
scoresto jump into first place
by the narrow margin.
