There'll be revenge in the minds
of several Wolverine gridders this
.Saturday afternoon, when the
Michigan football machine takes
on the oft-beaten Middies of Navy.
They'll be out to repay, with in-
terest, Navy's smashing 33-7 vic-
tory over the Wolverines in 1945.
MEMBERS of the 1945 aggre-
gation that fell before the mur-
"'derous thrusts of a powerful
Middie squad include captain
Dominic Tomasi, Stu Wilkins, Dan
Dworsky, Pete Elliott, Ed McNeill,
Walt Teninga and Joe Soboleski.
The loaded Navy squad of
that year included such greats
as ends Dick Duden and Leon
Bramlett, center Dick Scott, and
a terrific set of runners, Pistol
Pete Williams, Bruce Smith,
Clyde Scott, Bobby Jenkins and.
Tony Minisi sparkling in the
t." backfield.
This year's Middie aggregation
fis a far cry from that 1945 team,
but ,s long as they are wearing
th avy Blue and Gold, Michigan
will be gunning for them.
Outstanding for the Wolverines
in the 1945 debacle were Elliott,
asoboleski and McNeill. Elliott, op-
erating from the tailback spot, ac-
Counted for most of the Wolverine
;yardage through the air, while
Soboleski and McNeill were stal-
Awarts on defense. McNeill inter-
cepted two Middie passes, the last
preventing a late Navy score.
NOW THESE Wolverines find
themselves in the enviable position
of having the tables turned and
will be out to make the most of
this opportunity.

In the overall series, the two
teams have met five times, each
winning twice and the other
game ending in a tie.
The two teams faced each other
for the first time in 1925 and the
great Michigan eleven of that year
proved its overwhelming superior-

ity by scuttling the boys from An-
napolis to the tune of 54-0.
This 54 points, incidentally, was
the greatest score ever rolled up
against a Navy squad.

they were made of an elastic sub-,

Waterman battle Scene
For Registration, PEM

To most students on campus,
Waterman Gym is simply a con-
gested hall where, twice a year,
they must suffer the rigors of reg-
istration.
However, in an interview with
Howard C. Liebee, who is in charge
of Waterman Gym this miscon-
ception has been clarified for us.
Since the war, the Physical Edu-
cation for Men program has been
expanding and has developed into
a mecca for aspirant athletes on
campus interested in learning and
acquiring skill in the various ac-
tivities offered by the department.
IN ADDITION to the men re-
quiredto take the program, more
than one hundred athletes are
taking non-credit courses to be-
come more proficient in such
sports as basketball, fencing, ten-
nis, golf, weight lifting, and gym-
nastics, to mention but a few.
* * *
ONE OF THE more interesting
phases of the activity at Water-
man is the therapeutic program

carried out by the department.
For students placed in the course,
the program is adapted to con-
ditioning and strengthening the
participants.
The staff is equipped to the
needs of most atypical individuals
and has had a great deal of suc-
cess in dealing with underdevel-
oped and astmatic students.
* * *
IN ONE INSTANCE a student
who was underweight and poorly
developed gained twenty pounds
in three weeks of weight lifting.
Oddly enough, according to Mr.
Liebee, the heavy ones lost weight
and the light ones put on pound-
age.
The classes themselves are
conducted in the same manner
that most of the varsity teams
practice. Beginning with funda-
mentals and terminology, the stu-
dents gradually work up to the
point where the tournament games
held the last few weeks in the se-
mester resemble intra-squad var-
sity games.

stance and bounced back to take
the Wolverines over the hurdles
with a 10-0 decision in the 1926
game.
The following season, Mich-
igan moved out into the lead
with a two touchdown triumph
over the Middies. The final score
of this 1927 game was 27-12.
The two teams battled to ac6-6
tie in 1928, when a lack of con-
version hurt both squads. It was
after this game that the two teams
broke off athletic relations until
the 1945 contest.
SO WITH A fourfold purpose
in mind, the Wolverines will be
out to really sink the Navy when
2 o'clock rolls around this Satur-
day.
Besides extending their winning
streak, to 21 games, Michigan's
gridders will be trying to surpass
the Notre Dame margin of last
week, in addition to taking the
series lead and getting revenge for
1945.

Conn To Get
Shot at Louis
In Exhibition
CHICAGO - VP) - Joe Louis,
world's heavyweight champion, is
going to trade punches again with
Billy Conn, who has emerged from
a retirement forced by Louis two
years ago.
Conn, who gave the champion
a scare before the war, and the
Brown Bomber who knocked him
out in eight rounds when they
clashed in a $1,000,000 showdown
in New York's Yankee Stadium in
June, 1946, were matched today
for a six round exhibition at the
International Amphitheatre Dec.
10.
The exhibition will be promoted
by Frank E. Harmon, Chicago pro-
moter and son of the late Paddy
Harmon, builder of the $6,000,000
Chicago Stadium. Harmon will
submit the match to the Illinois
State Alletic Commission for ap-
proval at its meeting next Mon-
day.
The exhibition will be the first
ring appearance for Conn since
he was flattened by Louis.

A monster among midgets,
Ralph Kohl, 220 pound right tac-
kle on Michigan's regular offen-
sive combination, often appears
physically miscast while operat-
ing on a line averaging 189
pounds.
BUT, THE six foot two inch
Kohl possesses the necessary speed
to enable him to maneuver ef-
fectively with his lighter mates
while opening the key holes for
the Maize and Blue backs.
Ralph can also be used on the
defensive front wall where he
gained considerable experience
last year.
While serving three and a half
years in the Army Air Force, the
last as a physical director, Kohl
worked hard to build himself into
a midget pachyderm. He finally
developed himself in a robust 255
pounder.
Upon his discharge and arrival
at Michigan, he had to work a lot
harder to scale down to 220.
* * *
A LOT OF CREDIT for his
agility on the gridiron and the
ability to move his big frame
around in a well coordinated man-
ner can be given to long and suc-
cessful practice in the boxing
ring.
A winner of a berth in the
1943 Golden Gloves Tourna-
ment, Kohl gained further rec-
ognition for his boxing prowess
here at Michigan when in 1946
he garnered Intramural honors
in the heavyweight division for
SAE.
Before entering the service of
the United States, Kohl attended
the University of Kentucky where
he had been awarded a scholar-
ship following graduation from
Kentucky Military Institute.
The 23 year old tackle, who was
born in Cleveland, Ohio played al-
most every line position on the
Cleveland Heights High School
team.
* * *

the single wing offense requires
more intensive blocking than the
"T" formation. Single wing blocks
are lower and more sustained
while blocking from the "T" is
more of the hit and run type con-
sisting to a great extent of merely
blocking the opposition's view of
the ball.
While playing football in the
Air Force, Kohl injured his
knee and further aggravated the
injury in spring practice in
1946. After a session under the
doctor's knife, the knee has re-
acted well and has not bothered
Kohl.
A Physical Education major,
Kohl is a Senior who hopes to en-
ter the coaching profession upon
the conclusion of his college edu-
cation.
Durocher Gets
New Coaches
In Giant Fold
NEW YORK - (/P) - Leo Du-
rocher today signed up Frankie
Frisch and Freddy Fitzsimmons, a
couple of old New York heroes, as
coaches for his New York Giants
and announced that he had his
hooks out for a front line pitcher.
Durocher declined to identify
the pitcher he hoped to get, but
admitted he had made overtures
for southpaws Johnny Schmitz of
the Chicago Cubs and Harry
Brecheen of the St. Louis Cards,
and righthanders Ralph Branca
and Rex Barney of the Brooklyn
Dodgers.

Duke Tackle
WIs Honors
'InAPPoll
NEW YORK--P)-His team
didn't win, but the play of Al
Derogatis, Duke tacklo, against
Georgia Tech brought him this
week's award as the "lineman of
the week" in the Associated Press
Poll.
Playing with a bad knee that
was likely to buckle under him at
any time, Derogatis blocked a
Tech punt in the first quarter that
led to a Duke touchdown. Later he
recovered a Tech fumble deep in
Tech territory and generally made
life miserable for Tech forward
passers by throwing them for big
losses before they could get the
ball away.
* * *
ON DEFENSE he sometimes
shifted to a guard stop position
and helped Tech's running attack
through the middle.
In the pass receiving race, Jim
Ford of Tulsa caught eight passes
for 111 yards against Wichita last
week to take over the National
leadership in the pass receiving
race, based on number of aerials
caught.
FORD IS THE sixth different
player to head the list in as many
weeks since the season opened,
reports the Statistics Bureau of
the National Collegiate Athletic
Association. His 27 catches place
him two ahead of John O'Quinn
of Wake Forest, a previous leader.
The yardage pace setter still is
George Sulima of Boston Uni-
versity, who has travelled 429
yards on 19 catches. O'Quinn
stands second both in number of
passes caught and yardage gained,
and shares the touchdown lead
with Dick Rifenburg of Michigan,
each with five payoff catches.

Ohio State University football
team put in an easy day today as
far as scrimmages go, but worked
up a sweat on the problems of
throwing, catching, and stopping
forward passes.
It's part of their drill for this
Saturday's game here, with the
Panthers of Pittsburgh coming to
see if they can hang another de-
feat on the team that took Coach
Wesley Fesler from them two years

There was no scrimmage and
