THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Wolverines Set To Keep
Home Goal Ur crossed
By PRES HOLMES
The Wolverines want to win
Saturday's game against Illinois;
they want more than that-they
won't settle for less than a shut-
Although Minnesota ruined the
boast that not one touchdown had
been scored through the Wolver-
ine line this year, another record
still .remains intact.
For over a year no one has
crossed the goal line in Michigan's
stadium except a wearer of the
Maize and Blue.
Minnesota again appeared in
the role of spoiler. They pushed
across six points last October
25 for the only touchdown
scored against the first string-
ers, who had been unscored
upon at home all last season up
until that time.
Stanford racked up 13 counters,
out they came in the third and
fourth quarters against second
stringers at best.
SINCE THE GOPHER game, for
270 minutes, the Michigan goal
line has been rather neglected, or
shall we say stoutly defended.
In 1927, when Michigan
opened its play in the Stadium,
they went for four games unde-
feated and unscored upon until
they met - Illinois. The Illini
turned the tables and held the
Wolverines scoreless while win-
Coach Ray Eliot's team has done
an excellent job the last couple of
weeks making their opponents
turn gray with worry, and won-
der what they witnessed.
MINNESOTA HAD to wait un-
til the last quarter to score and
win, 6-0. Purdue found more than
they bargained for and went back
to West Lafayette on the short
end of a 10-6 score.
Whether or not Illinois is ca-
pable of breaking the spell this
time can only be definitely stated
at supper tonight.

AFTER LAST week's dismal showing of five wins, four losses and a
tie, our season's average took a nose-dive to .683, but this is an-
other week and the games begin to get rough.
* * * *
MICHIGAN-ILLINOIS-There should be no comparison between
these two teams if you looked at their records. The Wolverines are
undefeated, while the Illini have won only from Kansas State and
Purdue. But these Homecoming games have a way of surprising you.
Still we'll go along with the form sheet and pick Michigan to win their
sixth straight by a substantial margin.
OHIO STATE-NORTHWESTERN-If the Buckeyes win this
one the whole Big Nine will be in a turmoil. There will be a strong
possibility of no team other than Michigan finishing with a rec-
ord of only one loss There will be a strong smell of roses in the
air of this one and we are picking as our upset of the week, the
Buckeyes of Ohio State.
INDIANA-MINNESOTA-The Gophers proved last week that
they are a good ball team and the Hoosiers haven't been able to get
going. Bernie Bierman can look for his squad to get back to their win-
ning ways with this victory over Indiana.
WISCONSIN-IOWA-A couple of Big Nine have-nots get to-
gether to see which has less. The Badgers must win one of these days
or Mr. Harry Stuhldreher may find himself out of a job. Since we hate
to see Harry go, we'll pick the Badgers to break their losing streak.
PURDUE-MARQUETTE-The Boilermakers can't seem to
get started with only one victory to show for their efforts. But
Marquette isn't even in the same league, so Stu Holcomb can add
another victory to Purdue's sparse collection.
CORNELL-COLUMBIA-One of the top games in he East pits
these mighty giants against each other. The Big Red has come up
with a fine well-balanced squad while Columbia has been plagued by
a lack of reserves. They've dropped two heart-breakers on successive
weekends in the closing minutes and this one shapes up as another
repeat. If the quarters were shorter it would be the Lions, but as
things stand we.'ll go along with Cornell.
NOTRE DAME-NAVY-With their suicide schedule Navy will be
lucky to win one game. The Irish may not be the greatest football
team in the world, but they are good enough to hand Navy her sixth
CALIFORNIA-SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA-Another sectional
battle that will go a long way to picking a Rose Bowl representa-
tive. California has it this year and the Trojans may find them-
selves confronted by another Wooden Horse when they open the
game. California, like Ol' Man River, just keeps rolling along.
TEXAS-SOUTHERN METHODIST-Texas has the advantage of
playing in their own backyard, while the Mustangs have Doak Walker.
Other than that the teams are evening matched. The Mustangs of
SMU, however, still look good from this angle. SMU in a tight squeeze.

Phi Delts Battle SAE's
In Traditional rud Bowl
While the mud flies at Wash-
tenaw and South University to-
day, the turf on Ferry Field will beI
dug up for the same reason. I
At 1408 Washbenaw, the Mighty
Maulers from Phi Delta Theta will
pit their football talents against
the Terrible Terrors from SAE in
the ninth annual Mud-Bowl classic
which will take place on the bowl-
like lawn of the SAE house at
10:00 this morning.
Similar to this traditional affair
will be the first annual game be-
tween Tau Delta Phi and Triangle.
Their game, which offers competi-
tion to the Washtenaw-Eouth
University affair, is being held on
Field A at Ferry Field, also at,
The Triangles and Tau Delts
hopeto make their game a tradi-
tional Homecoming feature and
have purchased a cup to award to
the winning teach each year.
At stake in the SAE-Phi Delt
fight will be their own version of
the Little Brown Jug and the cov-
etedBalfour Award. These two
houses have been battling each
other on Homecoming mornings
since 1936, with the exception of
the war years. The Phi Delts have
limped home six times with the
'Jug' in their possession, while the
SAE's have had it on their mantle
twice. Last year, a plaque was
donated to be awarded to the
winning team and the Sigs took
initial possession of it by smashing
to a 13-12 victory.
At halftime, the scene will take
on all appearances of a three-ring
circus. While the girls from Kappa
Alpha Theta battle the Sorosis
Sluggers, other entertainment will
be provided by the SAE's own ver-
sion of the quick-stepping Maize
and Blue Band.
After the Phi Delts present their
Mud Queen, who will reign over
the proceedings, the Sigs will come
Dave Strack, freshman bas-
ketball coach, has announced

back with their famous lion tam-
ing act. If that isn't enough to
r'ake the spectators happy, the
fellows will grab the pigskin and
take up the game where they left
Rain or shine, the Phi Delts will
be out in full force to attempt to
avenge last year's one point heart-
breaker. The game promises to be
a thriller and loaded with excite-
ment until the last lion is tamed
So if you want to get warmed
up for the Wolverine-Illini clash,
drop around and see one of these
games. There should be enough
exciting football to make the most
avid enthusiast happy.
