hero has found it anything but

great year, but they'll be laying
for him this year and-well, foot-.
ball is pretty unpredictable.
For those interested in statistics
the Wolverines starting line-up!
will weigh in at 185 while the
Spartans will start in at 202. Allj
of which doesn't mean too much
when you consider Michigan's
defensive line also averages
around 200 and has a couple other
lines backing it up while State's!
front wall will have to play almost
the full 60 minutes.
The same goes for the backfield,
where Michigan is three deep in
really fine backs while Munn has
to depend on little George Guerre
for most of his offensive fireworks.
He be' aided and abetted at the
otherhalf spot by Lynn Chadnois,
at full by Jimmy Blenkhorn with
Don Waldron calling signals.
Steve Sieradzki will spell B1enk-

over the passing duties of which
Munn has promised many, from

Two Big Nine
'Fesler, Voigts Start
With OSU, Wildcats
By The Associated Press
Two Big Nine coaches - Wes
Fesler of Ohio State and Bob
Voigts of Northwestern-will make
their debuts with new grid squads
Fesler, All-American end with
the Buckeyes in 1929 and 1930,
will lead his alma mater against
the Tigers of Missouri in the in-
augural contest at Columbus. It
will mark the second time in Ohio
State's 58-year football history
that the Buckeyes open the season
with an alumnus at the coaching
For the First Time
Voigts, another youthful grid
mentor, will send his Wildcats
against Vanderbilt in the opening
game for both teams at Dyche
Stadium at Evanston. It will be
the first time Northwestern and
Vanderbilt have met on the grid-
iron. Northwestern, with nine let-
termen back, will start a veteran
line-up and will take the field f a-
fored to win by 14 points.
Big Nine and Rose Bowl cham-
pion Illinois, smaller but swifter
than last season, opens its 1947
football season at Champion
against experienced but under-
dog Pittsburgh before an esti-
mated 35,000 fans.
Coach Ray Eliot of Illinois will
miss Buddy Young, Julie Rykovich
and Alex Agase, last year's stars,
but he'll have an ample supply of
fine passers and runners in Perry
Moss, Bernie Krueger, Art Dufel-
meier, Paul Patterson, Chick
Maggioli and Dike Eddleman.
Pitt's single wingback attack fea-
tures the passing . of
160-pound Lou Cecconi.
Many of the freshmen and
transfer students, who were the
last to receive football ducats
under the revised ticket system,
aren't completely disappointed
over the fact that they will be
seating around the end zone
Said one optimistic frosh:
"Michigan will be in scoring
territory so often against Mich-
igan State that I'll be sitting in
the best seats of the house most
of the time-I hope!"
Hail to the colors
Hurrah for the
that float in
BACK IN ANN ARBOR-FOR A DAY--Biggie Munn, who will
direct the Michigan State football squad against the heavily-
favored Wolverines this afternoon, is no stranger at Michigan
Stadium. From 1937 to 1945,. Munn served under Fritz Crisler as
Michigan's line coach. Biggie switched to Syracuse in 1946, and
then to the Spartan institution this year.

versity invades the Michigan pre-

NEW YORK, Sept.; 26--()-A
$2,500 fine was levied today on the
Twentieth Century Sporting Club
by the state athletic commission
which said the club had had deal-
ings "with unlicense individuals
with criminal records" in staging
boxing bouts at Madison Square
The commission said the fine
was imposed on the club "for its
action against the best interests
of the sport" and added a repri-
mand to the organization "for its
The investigation was begun af-
ter District Attorney Frank S.
Hogan had announced Rocky
Graziano, explosive middleweight
fighter, had admitted being of-
fered a $100,000 bribe to throw a
Graziano, now middleweight
champion, had his license revoked
by the state commission last Feb.
7 for failing to report the bribe
offer but won the title in a bout
with Tony Zale in Chicago. He
testified before the grand jury.
In an interim report Feb. 28,
the jury said there was a "crim-
inal element" in boxing and added
that fighters hesitated to com-
plain of abuses because they
feared "the underworld grip on
professional boxing" was so strong
they might be barred from future

New York, Sept. 26 (AP)
Though the memory of what the
St. Louis Cardinals did to Boston's
Supermen a year ago still is green,
there seems nothing to do but
stick with the percentages and
pick the favored New York Yan-
kees to down the Brooklyn Dod-
gers in about six games.
The American League champ-
ions, as indicated in previous es-
says, boast the better outfield,
and they have one of the game's
greatest players in Joe DiMaggio.
Their Pitching looks superior to
that of the Dodgers, and they will
have the advantage of playing the
first two World Series games in
their own big park.
The Dodgers are a good, sound
team, full of fight and imbued
with a winning spirit that has
made them vastly respected in
their own league. They have in,
Jackie Robinson a streak of
lightning who might break up a
tight game with his base running,
and they own the best of the
series catchers in Bruce Edwards.
The question mark of the play-
off's appears to be the Brooklyn
pitching staff. It has been an
erratic group all season, with only
Ralph Branca, the 21-game win-
ner who will face the Yanks in
the opener, showing consistent
Vic Lombardi, a vest-pocket
lefthander, came up brilliantly in
the latter stages of the race, and
so did Joe Hatten, another south-
paw, but neither belongs quite in
the top drawer.
Much coud depend upon
whether Harry Taylor, Brooklyn's
rookie righthander, is able to take
a turn. He has the fastest and
sharpest curve on the Dodger
staff. He has had a bad arm,
Dodgers, now approximately 2 to
1, might shorten.
Most of those who predict the
though, and made his first ap-
pearance in five weeks last night,
when he worked two scoreless
innings against the Phils.
Manager Burt Shotton has as-
signed Taylor to do another stint
against Boston on Sunday, and
if the rookie passes that test im-
pressively, the odds against the
Dodgers will win their first World
Championship are basing their
hope on an intangible-The possi-
bility that Burt Shotton's scrap-
pers will get in there and run the
Yankees dizzy, make their own
"Breaks" and generally take
charge by sheer fighting spirit
