LINEMAN OF THE WEEK:
Smashing Line Play
By CY CARLTON
Illinois' backfield had an unex-
pected visitor in the person of one
Lloyd "Dutch" Heneveld, The
Daily's Lineman of the Week, Sat-
The most outstanding play came
in the first period on a fake field
goal attempt with the score dead-
locked. Dutch broke through to
smear Tom Gallagher as he was
trying to pass for the Illini.
LLOYD "DUTCH" Heneveld
makes no bones of the fact-he
plays football because he likes it.
The tall blond guard was chris-
tened with his now famous nick-
name in 1946 by another famous
Michigan Dutchman, Benny Oos-
Dutch has been playing foot-
ball since childhood. He grew up
and makes his home in Holland,
Michigan where he starred for
his high school in basketball as
well as football.
Heneveld spent two years in the
Army Air Force, serving as a pilot
officer. Discharged in 1945; he at-
tended Hope College for one se-
mester, transferring to Michigan
in February of 1946.
DUTCH PLAYED in two games
for Michigan in 1946. Injured, he
was forced to sit out the rest of
the season, and it looked bad for
Heneveld's football future. How-
ever, a successful operation in the
spring of 1947 removed the troub-
lesome knee cartilage and Lloyd
was able to continue.
During last season he was So-
boleski's replacement at defen-
sive guard and moved to the first
string slot this year after So-
boleski's switch to tackle.
He considers the Northwestern
garme the greatest of his career
and asked who he considered the
greatest guard he has faced this
season, Dutch unhesitatingly an-
swered, "Nomellini of Minnesota,
he knocked me for a loop several
times and I really felt it."

The nation's sports writers have done it again.
Whether it's the blarney of Frank Leahy or just plain conniving
by the Notre Dame followers in the writing game is hard to say,
but the Irish again top the heap in the Associated Press grid poll.
Not that the Green has an overwhelming lead. The margin
is infinitesimal. In the final point total, Michigan trails the
squad from South Bend by three points. '
But there's a brighter side to the story. Of the 208 first place

68 to 56 for the Irish. But when

Rose Bowl Heads Want Best in Big Nine
PASADENA, Calif. - (IP)-The
Tournament of Roses Association
unofficially started an effort to-
day to bring the No. 1 football
team of the Midwest's Big Nine
Conference into the Rose Bowl
New Year's Day against the Pa-
cific Coast Conference champion.
That probably would be Mich-
igan versus California.
But under the Big Nine-Coast
Conference agreement, a Big Nine
team may not appear in the Rose
Bowl oftener than once in three
years. Thus Michigan, which
swamped USC 49-0 last New Year's
Day, can not return to the Rose
Bowl next Jan. 1 even though the
Wolverines come through their Big
Nine season undefeated.

man of the Association's footballI
committee, said he understood but

This point was made yester-
day at the Herald-American
Quarterback Club meeting at
which Notre Dame's Ed (Moose)
Krause, assistant Irish athletic
director, was asked "Why can't
Notre Dame and Michigan play
each other at Soldier Field?"

before this same meeting last
year, Notre Dame is willing to
meet Michigan any Saturday,
Sunday or Monday afternoon."

"When Schaffer gets back I as-

and to Bill Hunter of USC (chair-

even if both conferences were

Lightweight football at Michi-
gan celebrates its first anniversary
Saturday when the 150-pounders
clash with Ohio State's Buckeyes
at Ferry Field.
It was just one yeur ago ti i
week that the little guys took to
the field against Illinois and
bowed gracefully into the spotlight
with a 33-0 inaugural triumph.
JOHNNY WILCOX scored three
times for the Maize and Blue that
afternoon and Capt. Charlie Ket-

traveled up to Madison and sloshed
and shivered through rain, sleet
and snow to a 20-0 victory over
the favored Wisconsin Badgers.
THAT GAME put the Wolver-
ines in a tie with theBadgers for
first place in the race for the
first "Little Big Nine" Football
Seven days later the 150-pound-
ers had clinched that tie with a
resounding 39-0 conquest of Ohio
State, the same club that had
previously handed them their lone
defeat of the season.
That was the season for the
lightweights. Wisconsin won its
final game and the first season

Northwestern and Purdue are ser-
iously considering fielding teams;
Illinois will make a trip into the
well organized ranks of eastern
lightweight football to battle pow-
Over 100 candidates turned out
for this year's squad. Included in
this turnout were only fifteen men
from last year's squad, but enough
of these men had sufficient talent
to make the Wolverines pre-season
favorites to retain their title.
A vastly improved Illinois squad
had different ideas though and
they upset the Maize and Blue, 13-
6 in the season opener.
Michigan must now win all of
their remaining games to be cer-
tain of at least a tie for Con-
ference honors. The little guys are
working hard to make this first
anniversary party a smashing sue-
ces at Ohio State's expense.

Traffic was held up on Washte-
naw during the Homecoming rush
Saturday morning while the Phi
Delts had their own homecoming.
The boys from 1434 Washtenaw

tional Mud Bowl Classic. It wasj
the seventh, win against only two
losses for the Phi Dolts.

of victory. Madden threw all

On this last drive, after Kemp-

to have a 15-yard personal foul
penalty nullify the gain and a
sortie into the line netted no
gain, Chuck Ortmann's pass
into the end one was dropped
by Leo Koceski, the flashy wing-
back from Canonsburg, Pa.
Then "Chuckin' Chuck" flipped
unerringly to end Harry Allis in
pay dirt fbr the touchdown and
Michigan's 27th point.
And Allis must have put a
twinkle in Oosterbaan's eye. The
sophomore successor to the amaz-
ing Jim Brieske converted for the
four important points after touch-
down besides snaring the final
TD pass in the last quaiter.

from the two, tying the ball

was set up on a pass play from

The only extra point of the day
was registered by a pass from
Madden to Doug Wicks and the
final score read 25-12.
Certainly Michigan's pass de-
fense in the second half Saturday
saddened the heart of Bennie Oos-
terbaan. The Illini netted 256
yards in the air, and 206 of them
were in the third and fourth
stanzas. That, alone, came close

AND IT'S A SURE thing that
Coach Bennie wasn't screaming
for joy over the six Michigan
fumbles. There's a medium that
has sent even the greatest teams
down to bitter defeat.
But Oosterbaan did have a
few reasons for bestowing a fa-
therly smile upon his undefeated
charges. Wally Teninga, with a
41.1 punting average, continues
to hold one of the keys to Mich-
igan's defensive prowess. Keep

have applauded his squad's light-

down by poor blocking (and there
was plenty of it) or incompleted
passes (and there were 14 of

plays to rack up the first score.
