Fritz unveiled what well may be his greatest gridiron team be-
fore 70,115' fans as his Michigan Wolverines rolled at will over a badly
outclassed Michigan State eleven, 55-0.
Although Crisler probably has had better first teams, it is doubt-
ful if he has ever had the talent-heavy depth he put on display yes-
terday. Michigan did everything that was expectedof them-which
was plenty.
Their potential All-American, Bob Chappuis, showed he still

best run of the day (a 56 yard sprint) and added a touchdown of his

Their regular fullback, Jack
Weisenberger took charge of the
first touchdown with runs of 17
and 19 yards and their rhighly
touted sophomore fullback, Dick
Kempthorn, lived up to advance
reports by standing out on defense
and scoring the last TD.
Even more impressive than their
ground attack was the way the
Wolverines ruled the airways the
entire afternoon.
They completed 10 out of 14
passes for a total of 258 yards-12

of the ten the Spartans tried.
Teninga Passing Star
Spearhead of Michigan's aerial
attack was Wally (Handy Man)
Teninga who came back from the
Army to find his old job filled by
the very capable Mr. Chappuis.
Given his chance in the last half,
Teninga completed two beautiful
30-yard passes to Irv Wisnewski
and Don Kuick, reeled off 17 and
22 yard runs and set up the final
touchdown on the receiving end of
a 17 yard pass from Pete Elliott.

Our Sincere and Best Wishes
for a Happy and Prosperous
New Year!

STARTS SCORING PARADE-
Jack Weisenburger, fullback,
scored Michigan's first touch-
down of the season in the first
period against MSC.
F efensively, Michigan couldn't
have been much better. The
Wolverine line held MSC to a
meager three first downs, and
didn't allow the Spartans to get
into Michigan territory until the
last play of the third period and
never did let them get past the
37-yard line.
Chronologically the TD's went
something like this:
(1) The first time they got
their hands on the ball the Wol-
verines went 55 yards in seven
plays with Weisenberger's two
long runs and a two yard pay-dirt
plunge highlighting the drive.
(2)Elliott's 56 yard run set up
this one with Chappuis going over
from the 6-inch line.
(3) Derricotte brought a punt
return back to the State 31 and
passed to Bump Elliott on the 24
who went over from the three yard
line four plays later.
(4) With 5 minutes of the first
half left, Weisenberger returned
a punt to the State 26, from
where Fonde hit Ford with a beau-
tiful pass on the 1 yard line and
Chappuis went over.
(5) Third play of second half
saw Chappuis pass to Ford in the
clear on the State 35 and Big
Lennie went all the way for a TD.
6) Four plays later Dworsky
scooped up a loose fumble and
rumbled 35 yards to score.
(7) 29 yard Chappuis to
Herschberger pass set up this one
on seven yard line and The Chap
scooted over from the four.
.(8) Teninga to Wisnewski pass,
pass-17 yards. Kempthorn over
in three straight plays from the 18
yard line. Brieske kick good. FI-
NAL, 55-0.

Wolverine Linemnen Hold Pittsburgh Backs
To 19 Yards Rushing Total in Third Win
ANN ARBOR, OCT. 12-For one quarter a hard-charging Pitts-
burgh line held a tidal wave at bay, but the dam broke early in the
second period and Michigan was off on a touchdown spree that en-
gulfed the Panthers 69-0, as the Wolverines ran and passed their way
to a third straight triumph at the University of Michigan Stadium.
Held in check on their attempt to better Notre Dame's 40-6 win
over Pitt, last Saturday, for 17 minutes, the Wolverines exploded the
first time they got their hands on the ball in the second period. Bob
Chappuis faded from his own thirty yard line, pitched to end Bob
Mann who took it on the Pitt 25 and went on to score with the aid
of a fine block by Dick Rifenburg. U
Jim Brieske missed his one and Peterson took it over on the spin-
only conversion of the day and ner play.

Pitt halfback Mark Maystro-
vich lost more than yardage while
returning a kickoff. After racing
to the 32-yard line, Mr. Maystro-
vich lost his pants.
Jack Weisenburger threw
what was probably his first in-
tercollegiate pass since he was
reassigned from halfback to
fullback duty way back in 1945.
For thersecond straight week
Michigan ran into a sensational
punter. Pitt provided a match for
Stanford's long booting Mike Dur-
ket in quarterback Bill Hardisty,
who's big trouble was he out-
kicked his ends and enabled Der-
ricotte, Elliott and Fonde to get
up full heads of steam.
Hardisty's best effort was a first
quarter punt from his own 20-
yard line to the Michigan fifteen
on the fly.

A bright sun beaming out of
fair skies boosted gate sales to
swell the MSC-Michigan grid
clash attendance past the 70,000
marker.
Just before noon the football
throng started to pour into Ann
Arbor, more than doubling the
town's population for a few hours.
Fans vere startled just before
the game, hearing an emergency
call for plumbers issued over the
public address system. However,
investigation revealed that the
sewers in the runway under the
gridiron bowl had backed up,
blocking the passageway. However
the equipment was restored to
working order in a matter of min-
utes.
Only 59,000, the smallest crowd
of the season, saw the Wolverines

smother the Pitt Panthers under
an avalanche of touchdowns in
the second game of the season.
The flag at half-staff during
the game, injected a somber note.
The flag was lowered here as in
all parts of the nation, to com-
memorate the arrival of the first
war dead in this country from
the far-off foreign lands where
they had died in defense of the
American way of life.
.....DO YOU KNOW that
Michigan and Notre Dame have
met ten times on the gridiron,
with the Wolverines taking
eight games. In the most re-
cent contests, Michigan took
the Irish 32-20 in 1942 and
then lost the following year,
35-12.
