'M'-Penn Tilt
On Grid Off
Schedule Difficulties
Prevent '48 Contest
The University of Pc:lnia
announced today its proposed
football game with the University
of Michigan next IpClmbr has
been called of i because of sched-
uling difficulties.
MSC Unable to Shift
Dr. Leroy Mercer, dean of the
University's physical education
department, said the decision had
been made after a conference with
Fritz Crisler, Michigan's coach
and athletic director, in New York.
The proposed date, September
25, originally was slated for a
game between Michigan and
Michigan State. Dr. Mercer said
that when the Penn game came
under discussion, Michigan State
authorities thought they could
move their game back to October
Confers with Crisler
But, said Dr. Mercer, Michigan
State later advised it had a con-
tract for an October 2 game with
the University of Hawaii and was
unable to shift that date.
"We at Pennsylvania are very
sorry that the game with Mich-
igan could not be scheduled," said
H. Jamison Swarts, Penn's direc-
tor of athletics. "We still owe
Michigan a game and hope to play
it within a few years."

tackle spot, did considerable more
damage tonight in addition to,
sending Northwestern in front in
the first half. He added three
points in the final two minutes
to help decide the issue.
Once Northwestern took the
lead Michigan was unable to
regain its early shooting form.
Boyd McCaslin managed to tie
it up once at 14-14, but North-
western surged back in front
and stayed there.
Leading 24-22 at the half Coach
Cowles pulled Elliott and McIn-
tosh out of action when they both
were charged with their fourthl
personals late in the first half and
that didn't help matters. Pete had
held Sticklen to seven points-five
of them free throws-before leav-
ing. Capt. Bob Harrison guarded
the flashy guard after that.
Just as it took Northwestern
11 minutes to catch the pace in
the first half, it was 11 minutes
before the Wolverines caught
up in the second. Suprunowicz
and McIntosh set the stage, and
Gerrit Wierda's one hander put
Michigan in front 36-35. That
lead was built to 40-36 and 42-

38 but then Maddock went to
work. lie collected five points in
quick order and Northwestern
led 43-42 with two minutes and
45 seconds left.
The lead changed six times in
those final two minutes with Su- 1
prunowicz getting two field goals'
for Michigan. Mikulich dropped a
free throw to tie it up at 47-47
with a minute and 20 seconds to
go. But Sticklen dropped a long
set shot. Maddock tossed in a free
throw after Morrill fouled him as
he stalled for time and Joe Zurav-
leff's sleeper killed all chances.
Mikulich sang a final free throw
at the gun.

Newt Loken, coach of Mici-
igan's varsity gymnastics team
used to spend his Sunday after-
noons in high school teaching
his two kid brothers the funda-
mentals of tumblin~g. Ncxt Satur-
day afternoon one of those kid-'
brothers is coming to Ann Arbor
to prove brother Newt's work was
not all in vain. In fact, he will
meet his big brother face to face
when Minnesota's champion
squad faces Michigan Saturday
afternoon at the Intramural
Number One Tumbler
Hailed as the number one iin-
bler on the Gopher team, 23 year
old Herb Loken is expected to
make those Sunday afternoon
workouts in a Minneapolis saw-
dust pit pay off in a big way.
A former high school champ on
the parallel bars, Herb served with
a paratrooper outfit in the Euro-
pean theater and is now a soph-
omore at Minnesota.
Another Brother
Herb is not the last of the Leap-
in' Lokens either. Don, a fres hman
performer for Minnesota, will be
along next year to give brother
Newt another family headache.
For the rest of the Michigan
gymnastics squad, Saturday's met
will be anything but a family af-
fair. Realizing that they will be
facing a veteran outfit that boasts
three Big Nine champs, the Maize
and Blue acrobats worked right

Goalie Jack McDonald's below-
par performance in Friday's game
was overshadowed by the fine job
of net-tending displayed in Satur-
day night's victory. McDonald had
been inclined towardsc1 wandering
from the crease all last season.
but until the first game with the
Dakotans he seemed to have the
nomadic spirit licked.
How the Wolverines will fare
against their only Big Nine op-
ponents will depend largely on
how much of an attraction the
netting will hold for McDonald.

Poll Picks Ohio tate-Northwestern Grid
Tilt as Outstanding 1947 Sports Oddity

NEW YORK, Jan. 12 - (AP) -
Ohio State's "borrowed time" grid
victory over Northwestern was the
outstanding sports oddity of 1947
according to the nation's sports

ciated Press' year-end poll.

game in the World Series, turning
an apparent New York win into a
Brooklyn victory, was next on the
list with the decision on the Joe
Louis-Joe Walcott bout ranking
third. Neither was close to the
Ohio State-Northwestern Affair.
Ohio State really did it the
hard way in shading the Wild-
cats, 7-6, some three minutes
after the final gun, as the re-
sult of a penalty against North-
western for having 12 men on
the field.
A fourth down Ohio forward
pass from Northwestern's seven
was intercepted as the game ap-
parently ended. But there was a
horn on the play because the
Wildcats had an extra man on the

bers, Ohio's quarterback threw a
touchdown pass to Jim Clark to tie
the score. But that wasn't all.
On the first try for point
after touchdown, Ohio missed
but Northwestern was offside.
The acond try was good. Ohio
won 7-6 in the wildest finish of
the season.
Never before has a World Se-
ries game been won under more
dramatic circumstances than the
fourth game of the '47 competi-
tion at Ebbets Field. Bevens, an
in-and-outer for the Yanks all
season, was one out away from the
first no-hit game in Series his-
tory. With Al Gionfriddo on sec-
ond and Eddie Miksis on 'first, the
Dodgers' Lavagetto delivered a
pinch double that ruined the no-
hit effort and won the game.
The decision for Louis over
Walcott provoked the most pro-
longed protest of the year. Ar-
guments still continue as the re-
sult of the split verdict by
which the two judges voted for
the champ and referee Ruby
Goldstein named Jersey Joe.
Leo Durocher's case also drew a
scattering of votes as the oddest
happening. Both his suspension
for the season by Commissioner A.
B. Chandler and his re-appoint-
ment as, Brooklyn manager by
Branch Rickey were mentioned,

Big Nine high scorer, Bobby

Rehfeldt amply compensated for
this by putting 20 points through
the hoop. Murray Wier of the

replace Capt. Tom Hamilton, who

By its action, the Navy joined
