games of the season were not in evidence last Saturday as the Maize

PETE ELLIOTT didn't make a mistake. He called a fine game
and that was the major difference between Michigan's past perform-
ances and the sterling job done Saturday.
He would pull in the line by sending Tom Peterson through
guard or center and then send Ortmann around the ends or have
the Milwaukee youth pass into the unprotected zones.
In past games there had been no rhyme or reason to Elliott's
calling, and, since the Michigan system is based on a series or group
of plays, the experts said the Wolverines were bogging down.
BUT THE TOW-HEADED STAR got those sequences down pat
and Michigan began to roll. Now it's going to be awfully tough to

UPSA DAISY-Purdue backfield man Bob Agnew (lower right) performs a summersault, balancing
on one hand, after being spilled by Michigan Center, Dan Dworsky, in the first quarter of last
Saturday's game. Coming in to help Dworsky in the tackle were Michigan back Dick Kempthorn
(38) and end Ozzie Clark (86). Purdue guard Bill Horvath (56) was also spilled on the play. The
Boilermakers gained two yards on this effort, but it was of little help as they were forced to punt
two plays later.

THEY'VE DISPLAYED THE ABILITY to come from behind as
they did Saturday. They've got the best backfield in the Conference
with six men who can really carry the leather.
Their starting backfield consists of Don Burson at quarter-
back, Frank Aschenbrenner and Tom Worthington at thehalves,
and Art Murakowski at full.
So when the Wolverines seek their 18th -straight victory they'll
be facing a team that sees the Rose Bowl on the horizon, and will try
desperately not to let anything stand in their way of reaching that

The arim-chair q u ar te rb ac k s
have been going hot and heavy on
the second-guessing since all the
final scores came in last Saturday
And the way the dopesters have
it figured is that Michigan is well
on the way towards grabbing its
second consecutive Big Nine title,
IF Northwestern or Minnesota
don't upset the apple-cart.
THAT'S a big "if," no matter
how you look at it. But from the
performance Bennie Oosterbaan's
boys put on against the Riveters,
the chances are excellent that
Michigan can repeat.
Those same "experts" who got
into a huddle Sunday morning
and came up with all the an-
swers have it figured that the
Wolverines have one distinct
draw-back which would make
the Conference race a toss-up,
and that's their pass defense.
True, Purdue did complete nine
passes, but Bob DeMoss tried 22
times, and, for an aerialist of his
caliber, the percentage isn't very
impressive. And most of the nine
completions were between the two
thirty yard line stripes.
WHEN THE CHIPS were down
and Purdue penetrated beyond the
30, the tosses were knocked down.
That's where they really count.
There can be no denying
Michigan's superb ground bloc.
SEYMOUR SONKIN, Night Editor
The lads Stu Holcomb hoped to
take to the Rose Bowl found a
veritable stone wall in front of
them, All together, the highly-
touted Norb Adams, Harry Szul-
borski, and Bob Agnew plunged
for only 36 yards.
But the defense was no surprise.
The goal line stand the Wolverines
chucked into the faces of Oregon
last week was the tip-off. They
did it again against Purdue.
WHAT WAS AMAZING was the
offense. The first two games of
the year were squeakers. Michi-
gan didn't show anything in the
way of a satisfactory ground at-
tack. Blocks were missed; the line
was out-charged; the deception of
the '47 team was gone.
That the whole team improved
immensely is beyond question.
The blocking was vicious and
timely; the line opened the
holes; and some of the finesse
that characterized Bob Chap-
puis and the rest returned.
Especially eye-pleasing was the

work of the offensive guards and
tackles. They pulled out of the
line with ease and they didn't miss
their blocks. As an example, there
was the bone-crusher Capt. Dom
Tomasi threw at the Purdue line-
backer on Wally Teninga's 13-yard
scamper around end for the fifth
IF THE CHUNKY field pilot
had missed, there would have been
no gain, but he didn't fail and
Teninga went over unhampered.
There is work to be done. The
Wildcats have their eyes on the
roses of Pasadena and they'd
like to have Michigan down as
one of their victims, if for pres-
The pass defense can be im-
proved; the deception can be
worked on; and all the other small
rough spots can be ironed out.
And Gene Derricotte will prob-
ably be back. The hard-luck
speedster ran through signal plays
at practice yesterday, heralding
his imminent return to action.
