DEJECTED DUCKS-Wolverine fullback Tom Peterson receives congratulations from center Tom
Erben after scampering into paydirt with Chuck Lentz' third period toss. Peterson grabbed the bullet
pass on the one yard line and dashed unmolested over the goal line, to put the Maize and Blue
in the lead, 13-0. Harry Allis' educated toe drove the ball between the uprights a moment later,
and the final score read Michigan 14, Oregon 0. The sad-faced Webfoots in the background are
halfbacks Johnson and McKay.

tackle and the burly Oregon line
could not do anything against the
Wolverines when the chips were
down.
* * *
THE GREATEST STAND the
Wolverines made was at the start
of the final period. Van Brocklin
had hit twice for 10 and 32 yards
and then Jim Aiken, Jr., the
coach's son went for 11 to Mich-
igan's four. It was four yards and
goal to go for the Webfoots.
Aiken made barely a yard and
was crushed by Ed McNeill and
Pete Elliott. Then the big full-
back, Bob Sanders, met another
stone wall as Elliott and Dick
Kempthorn hit him. On third
down Jensen ran into Clark
and with less than two yards to
go McKay sliced off tackle and
when he met a stone wall he
twisted into the clear. But that
was only momentary. Wahl, the
outstanding lineman of the day,
pounced on him and stopped
the Oregon halfback inches
short of a touchdown.
But that was not the last serious
threat of the day. Oregon came
roaring back after an exchange of
Dunts, Van Brocklin got the Web-
foots under way again. He passed
to Sanders for 3 yards and then
Hit McKay on the midfield stripe.
The speedy McKay began to thread
his way along the sidelines with
only one man between him and
pay dirt.
BUT IT WAS that man that did
it. Lentz came over and pushed
him out of bounds on the Mich-
igan 25. With less than 2 minutes
to play Van Brocklin threw three
beautiful passes into the end zone
only to have them all missed by
inches.
The first missed McKay; the
second slithered off Dan Garza's

finger-tips and the third was just
beyond the reach of Bob Ander-

Shades of All-American passers
turned up yesterday in the person
of Norm Van Brocklin, probably
the coolest, classiest quarterback
between the Atlantic and Pacific
coasts this season.
The Oregon field general put on
a passing display in the Michigan
home opener that ranks with the
performances of any all-time col-
lege great. Wally Weber, fresh-
man coach and one of the keenest
of football analysts, rates Van
Brocklin with Chappuis, H arry
Newman, Frankie Albert, and Bob
Waterfield.
"le has the accuracy of a
Swiss watch," Weber comment-
ed. The West Coast junior has
terrific marksmanship. His
teammates give him enough
a time to eat apple pie, survey
thefield, and then pitch perfect
strikes to his receivers.
The difference between Michi-
gan and Oregon's aerial attack,
according to Weber, lies in the
ron Wolverines' series of pass patterns
the and this target-practice pitching
on- of Van Brocklin.
Dry Michigan's so-called "pass pat-
hes terns" are a number of simiiar
ski, plays designed to pull the opposi-
tion into a certain area for de-
fense. When this is done. the Wol-
verine quarterback calls for a play

faking the defense into the same
sector and allowing a Michigan
man to get free in the opposite di-
rection.
Thus "Chow" Ortmann was
able to hit Dick Rifenburg for
Michigan's first TD. Rifenburg
was all by himself with nothing
around but fresh Ann Arbor air.
* *
It was a greatly improved de-
fensive team that Michigan show-
ed against Oregon. Coach Bennie
Oosterbaan praised the line-work
of strapping Al Wahl, and smiled
when the Wolverine goal line
stand was mentioned.
The fans in the stadium,
however, couldn't say enough
about the smack-em, crack-em

line-backing of Dick Kemp-
thorn and Dan Dworsky.
For those wondering why a
Wolverine didn't fall on Leo Ko-
ceski's punt that rolled into the
end zone for a touchback, here's
the answer from coach Wally
Weber. Any ball that is touched
within the ten yard line is auto-
matically a touchback and comes
back to the twenty.
