Michigan stole a page from Oregon's book yesterday as a couple

With regular tailback Gene Derricotte out of action Coach Bennie

across and that was the ball game.

IT WAS A BATTLE of big lines
and long passes with both teams
moving up and down the field. It
was a seesaw tussle until mid-
way in the second quarter when
Van Brocklin kicked out of bounds
on the Michigan 7.
Leo Koceski took a reverse
from Peterson and scooted 21
yards to the Michigan 28. Peter-
son spun for 8 more and Ko-
ceski picked up a first down on
the Michigan 39.
Then Ortmann faded and
heaved a 30 yard pass to Dick
Rifenburg on the Oregon 25 and
the flashy end scampered over for
the first touchdown.

Band, Game, Planes,
All Add toPageantry
Some 66,000 fans, nippy au-
tumn weather, hoarse-voiced
hucksters, a quick-stepping band
and hard-fought gridiron play all
combined yesterday in the color-
ful pageantry which marked the
opening home game of Michigan's
1948 football season.
Light-colored raincoats and
brightly-hued scarves dotted the
huge oval stadium as the game
got underway under leaden skies
at 2 p.m. Threatened rhin didn't
materialize, however.
WHILE PLANES roared over-
head advertising commerical en-
terprises, student promoters in the
stadium lugged signs around
pushing the forthcoming A-Hop.
And the customary canines
were on hand too-a large friendly
shaggy dog and a tiny black cock-
er. They confined their cavorting
to the sidelines this time and
didn't interrupt play.
Only a sprinkling of fans made
the long trek from Eugene to
cheer the Oregon eleven-but one
of the Michigan cheerleaders ob-
ligingly donned huge web-like
shoes and a duck's bill in supprt
of the opposition.

big hand for the railroad, anvil,
church, speech, bell and "M"
formations that made up the
"Freedom Pageant."
Streets were black with human-
ity as the throng poured from the
stadium and the 110-man traffic
force had its hands full directing
the stream of cars. A carefully
worked-out traffic plan enabled
police to clear most of the game
traffic from the city by an hour
after the game.
