Turns Game inito Michigan Rout
By DICK KRAUS
Behind a savage'y efficient first :quarter offensive, Michig n
rclled over outmanned Stanford, 49-13, at the University of Michigan
Stadium yesterday, in a sparkling display of preci ion attack that
swept the Westerners out of contention before the game was five
minutes old.
The first meeting of the two schools since 1902 was two plays old
when Bob Chappuis faded from his own 39-yard line and threw ir
beautiful pass to Bob Mann, who had outrun the Stanford safety.
Mann took it on the four, shook off a desperation tackle and went
over. Jim Brieske booted the first of his seven straight conversions.
Less than two minutes later, Len Ford, Wolverine end, recovered
a Stanfdrd fumble. Two plays and a 15-yard unnecessary rough-

OUTTA MY WAY-All-American Bob Chappuis (49), shifty Wolverine tailback, heads for Stanford
territory through a flock of Indians as quarterback Howie Yerges (24) and Jack Weisenburger
help clear the way.

- Then and Now
The 1947 Stanford-Michigan game was the first between the
two schools since the inaugural Rose Bowl shindig way back in
1902. It took Fielding Yost's point-a-minute team eight days to
make the trip west, but this year the Indians came east in one.

Michigan Fans
Cheer Indian
Scoring Tries
Sun and M' Offense.
Keep> 65,000 in Sweat
A sun-burned throng of more
than 65,000 yesterday poured out
of Michigan Stadium after viewing
a heavily favored Wolverine team
steamroller the Stanford Indians,
49-13.
Predicted rain failed to mater-
ialize although fans had a few
anxious moments in the first
quarter when dark storm-clouds
obscured the sun. However, for
the remainder of the game old
sol's sizzling rays beat merciless-
ly down on grid fans.
Turn-About
Wolverine fans did a turn-about
early in the game, cheering every
scoring attempt of the underdog
Stanford eleven. And thundering
Michigan cheers greeted both
Stanford touchdowns.
For the first time in recent his-
tory Michigan, Stadium saw a de-
monstration of flash card stunts.
No Bad Accidents
No serious accidents were re-
ported although an unidentified
press photographer was bowled
over on the sidelines by a Stan-
ford lineman. The photographer
climbed to his feet unhurt, but
his camera and equipment were
slightly damaged.
The famed marching band's
playing of the featured Michigan
song, "Bum Army," did not go
over so well yesterday afternoon
during halftime. In fact it was
greeted by a wave of silence from
University students, evidently un-
familiar with the words.

I ing penalty moved the ball to
the Indian 10, where Bump El-
liott, running off the famous
Michigan reverse, shook off four
Stanford tacklers to go over
standing up.
Weisenburger's Turn
Then it waS Jack Weisenburg-
er's turn, The speedy Wolverine
fullback spun into a gaping hole,
on the Michigan 39-yard line,
broke out into the clear, shook
loose from a headgear tackle,
slowed up long enough to let Stu
Wilkins wipe out the last Indian,
and then breezed over. Brieske
made it 21-0 with the game only
six minutes old.
The last bolt of Wolverine frst
quarter lightning struck suddenly
after Michigan had been penal-
ized for illegal use of the hands.
Chappuis faded from his 40 and
bulleted a spiral that looked too
long for Rifenburg, but the Wol-
verine end went up and hauled it
in on his fingertips to make it
four touchdowns in eight and a
half minutes.
Wolverines Rest
Then the Wolverine scoring at-
tack took a 13 minute siesta, dur-
ing which time the Indians had
nothing to cheer but the sensa-
tional punting of halfback Mike
Durket, who consistently boomed
high spiral punts that would have
kept the Wolverines at bay, but
for the brilliant punt returning of
Gene Derricotte and Bump Elliott.
Derricotte, late in the first
quarter took a Durket punt on
the Michigan 23 and legged it be-
hind beautiful blocking to the
Stanford 25, but part of the run
was nullified by a clipping pen-
alty.
The. second. quarter. offense
was spearheaded by Derricotte
who scored' twice to make the
halftime score, 42-0. He started
a 54-yard sustained drive to notch
the first second period touch-
down, by pitching a perfect jump
pass to Ed McNeil, Wo.tierine end,
who raced it to the Stanford 27.
Fonde Rips to Seven
Hank Fonde, running the re-
verse, raced to the seven. Derri-
cotte took a handoff from Yerges,
who did some excellent faking,
and hit to the two. Stanford
tightened and made a brilliant
goal line stand, but a fourth down
interference penalty in the end-
zone gave Michigan a first down
on the one yard line. Derricotte
then went over.
Less than a minute later, Derri-
cotte did it again, after J. T.
White set up the score by inter-
cepting a pass thrown by Morris
and had run it to the Stanford
4-yard line. Derricotte took it
over in two plays. Brieske split
the uprights and the half ended,
42-0.
The second half was a differ-
ent story, and served to explode
the myth that Coach Fritz Cris-
ler's third team is as good as his
first which he used only during
Brieske's seven straight conver-
sions.
Stanford Scores
The Indians scored once in the
third and once in the fourth

quarter. The passing of second
string quarterback Morris and the
running of little Wayne Erickson
and Mickey Titus sparked Stan-
ford's second half play.
Erickson sprinted 21 yards to
Michigan's 49 with a Teninga
punt to begin the first touchdown
march. Morris passed to end Gene
Martin for 11 yards. Two line
plays failed to gain and Titus
took a lateral from Morris and
streaked to the Wolverine eight-
yard line, running behind the
blocking of guard Pinky Phleger
who escorted him all the way.
Titus and Erickson then alter-
nated and moved the ball to the
two from where Erickson went
wide for the score. Marty Feldman
missed the conversion.
Kuick Tallies
The Wolverines sandwiched
their final touchdown between the
two Stanford scores. It came on
another long pass, this time Ten-
inga threw and Don Kuick, reserve
right half, caught it in the end
zone.
Chuck Coker, 225-pound full-
back went over for Stanford's sec-
ond touchdown, hurtling across
from the one yard line after a
series of passes from Morris to
end Dan Mervin had set up the
score. Mervin then converted.
Michigan's overall supremacy
in the statistical department was
challenged only in the first down
department where the Indians ac-
cumulated a 13-10 advantage. All
but three coming in the second
half.
Unusual Aerial Display
Michigan, usually primarily a
running team, rolled up more
yardage on passes than on the
ground. With Chappuis, Derri-
cotte, and Teninga joined by five
other Michigan tossers, the Wol-
verines went overland for 252
yards, while running for only 184,
96 of which were gained by Weis-
enburger.
Defensively the entire first two
teams were much more efficient
than against Michigan State a
week ago.
