Sickels Turns in Finest Contest of Career
By BOB LENT
ANN ARBOR, Nov. 9-After being partially stalled for two Satur-
days in a row, Michigan's high-scoring grid machine moved back into
high gear by rolling over a game but out-gunned Indiana eleven 35-0
before a chilled sellout crowd of 85,937.
Flashing the power and daring that made them almost a point-a-
minute outfit in their first four games, the Wolverines scored three
times in the first 19 minutes, going all the way each time they got
their hands on the ball.
"Big Three" Make Difference
As expecte-, it was the Maize and Blue's first set of backs which
made the big difference. Michi-v

Yerges lateraled to Fonde who
went over. Brieske made good his
seventh straight conversion to
wind up the scoring at 35-0.
Line- Ups

gan's "Big Three" (Bob Chappuis,
Bump Elliott and Jack Weisen-
burger) accounted for 324 of the
Wolverines 363 yards and had a
hand directly in all but one of
their touchdowns.
Chappuis got 103 of these
through the air and 48 on the
ground and passed for three'
touchdowns. Weisenburger got 91
yards in ten tries and Bump
picked up 55 and scored twice.
Chap Takes Charge
The Chap personally took
charge of the first two touch-
downs. After the opening kickoff,'
he sparked the team on a 72 yard
sustained march that ended with
one of his passes hitting Yerges
for yards and the first score.
After Indiana punted to Michi-
gan's 41, Chap went right back to
work and in nine plays Michigan
had another touchdown. He passed
for 6 to Bump, 22 to Mann, and
then tore 15 yards off tackle to
the four. Four plays later, Elliott
dove over for the second tally.
Four minutes passed and Bump
did it again, only, this time it was
Weisenburger who set up the
score. Starting frohi his own 34,
the slippery fullback took a lat-
eral from Yerges, picked up a key
block by Stu Wilkins and scooted
60 yards down the sidelines all
the way to the Indiana six. Chap-
puis then passed to Elliott in the
flat and the Bumper drove over.
Brieske made good his third

straight kick and the score read
21-0.
Bump's Turn to Sparkle
In the second half it was Bump's
turn to lead a drive down the
field. This one went 84 yards and
took just eight plays. Thrice the
178 pound red head drove for 10
yards a crack and then reeled off
a beautiful 26 yard run to the
Indiana 12.
A fifteen yard penalty nullified
the play, but Chappuis hit Rif-
enburg with a 51 yard pass on the
next play to hoist the score to
27-0.
Indiana's season-long fumble
mania caught up with them with
two minutes of the game left and
Crisler's boys capitalized on it to
score their final marker. The ball
bounced off McInnes' chest'and
Wilkins broke through to down it
on the Indiana fourteen. Three

Psychologists have been argu-
ing for decades that the way an
individual performs in later life
is greatly dependent upon habits
formed, and behavior of that per-
son during his early years.
Here's some more proof! Quen-
tin Sickels' father was athletic di-
rector and coach at the junior
high school Quent attended in
Benton Harbor. With the incen-
tive instilled in him by his father,
Quent naturally included athletics
in his activities, and was an out-
standing performer in junior high.
Spectacular Tackle
With a firm foundation for his
football career already behind him
as he entered high school, Quent
followed up with three spectacular
years at tackle. Superb on de-
fense, he consistently stopped ball
carriers all over the field.
In his senior year in 1943, his
team won the championship, and
he received All-City and All Con-
ference ,awards.
In June of 1944 the ubiquitous
Mr. :Sickels came to Michigan.
That fall, under the war-time rul-
ing allowing freshman to play,
even though he was moved over to
the guard slot it had no injurious
effect, and he played a full season.
Besides winning his "M" he re-
ceived a 2nd team All-Big Nine
berth.
Sweet Victoryl
It wasduring this season that
Quent experienced his "second
greatest" thrill in the game of
football. His brother, Duane, was

I

QUENT SICKELS
. outstanding lineman of the
day,
playing on Northwestern's eleven
that year, and now Quent is for-
ever reminding his brother of the
score of 27-0.
A year and a half stretch in the
Coast Guard put a gap in his foot-
ball biography, but he returned to
don the Maize and Blue again last
fall.
This year he is enjoying the
"greatest" experience of his long
football history. "We've come so
close to winning the champion-
ship the other two years I played
here," he says, "and now that
we've made it this year-and the
Rose Bowl--it's great."
Playing on such a star-studded
team hasn't kept him from haul-
ing down a few more honors.

TROJANS! WATCH THIS PLAY--This is the Wolverine pass play that many expert sport observ-
ers have termed "unstoppable." Used sparingly this year despite tremendous success with it in
1946, this play shakes loose one of Michigan's least watched pass receivers, the quarterback. Here
Howard Yerges stands all alone ready to catch the first touchdown pass against Indiana on a 12-
yard toss from Bob Chappuis. The Wolverines went on to take the game, 35-0.

86,000 Chilled Football Fans
See Wolverine Juggernaut Roll

4

A shivering throng of nearly
86,000 yesterday saw the mighty
Michigan Wolverines shatter Indi-
ana, 35 to 0.
The mercury took a dive shortly
after the game got underway, as a
chill wind sent the temperature to
the low thirties. And the second
sell-out throng of the season got a
taste of winter as the wind whip-
ped scattered snow flakes across
the field.
With cold weather in evidence
for the first time this year, the
time honored fire-water flask also
put in an appearance. However,
local police report little traffic in
inebriates. And local liquor stores
revealed that business had fallen
far below last week's sales which
were boosted by the influx of
homecoming alumni.
The lone, red-clad Indiana
cheerleader seemed to be the only
Hoosier rooter able to muster a
cheer after the Wolverine jugger-
naut started rolling. His exhorta-
tions failed to move the 2,400 sad-
dened Indiana fans who made the
trek from Bloomington.

Special guests of the game to-
day were 80 hospitalized soldiers
from Percy Jones Hospita and 501
veterans from the VA center at
Fort Custer
