Navy Looms as 21st _Mii

The Middies are going Lo put on
a show for the Wolverine fans to-
morrow afternoon, even if they
have to use their mascot goat to
do it.
It won't be a happy Billy that
will be parading up and down the
sidelines. With the exception of
the gridders and Coach George
Sauer, he will be without support,
for his blue-clad admirers will not
be at the game.
THEY'LL BE BACK in Annapo-
lis, cheering their representatives
from the barracks. Much of the
color that is attached to games
with the service academies will
thus be missing, for the synchro-
nized marching and cheering is a
rare sight.
Sauer and his. Gobs will arrive
in Dearborn today and will prac-
tice behind closed. gates in the af-
ternoon at the Michigan Stadium,
thus becoming the second visiting
team to employ the Ann Arbor
turf for practice. The other op-
ponents have gone through final
drills in Dearborn.
MASCOT BILLY will be watch-
ing his team go into action for
the seventh time this season. The
first six were unhappy ones for
the little Swabbie, as he watched
his pride and joy trudge to the
locker room, a defeated squad.
But none of the set-backs were
humiliating. The Middies have
scored on all six of their oppon-
ents, including the powerful
Notre Dame squad which crushed
them last Saturday, 41-7.
* * *
THE IRISH were the first to
rack up a lop-sided score against

B. S. BROWN, Night Editor
the Sailors, and they've played
some mighty tough opposition.
Four of the six teams. California,
Cornell, Pennsylvania and the
South Benders, were unbeaten.
Cornell has since lost to Army's
Black Knights, but the other three
have unblemished records.
In a game which means more to
the Wolverines than to the Navy,
Michigan will be attempting to
stretch its winning streak to 21
games. The Middies will be out to
smash a skein of their own-an
eleven game losing streak which
began last year.
* * *
AND THOUGH IT isn't as im-
portant, there's that AP poll
which rates the top teams in the
nation. If Michigan hopes to hold
its own (Notre Dame, now lead-
ing the pack, is expected to romp
over Indiana and retain the lead),
Navy will have to be slugged by at
least 34 points.
But Sauer and his boys are
holding out hope. The Middie spir-
it is still running high, Sauer said
yesterday before entraining for
Ann Arbor. "In Michigan," he
added, "we face either the coun-
try's number 1 or 2 eleven, de-
pending on where you sit. We're
the underdog, but remember this
is the week for upsets."
Like all the teams that play
against the Wolverines, the Sail-
ors will be aiming for the un-
expected-for the game which will
end the Michigan streak and send
them tumbling from the ranks of
the undefeated.

idgets Out To Averge
LiSt Year's OSU Defeat

* * *

However exciting the Navy gameF
is, there is going to be a real battle
at FerryField Saturday morning
when the Wolverine 150-pounders
meet Ohio State in a crucial game.
Cliff Keen's squad willyhave
blood in their eyes as they try
to avenge the 13-2 beating the
Buckeyes handedthem last year
that kept them from an undis-
puted Conference title. On the
other hand, the boys from Colum-
bus will be attempting a retalia-
tion for ,the 39-0 drubbing that
the Wolverines gave them in last
year's rematch.
THERE ARE several men on the
blue team who should prove key
men in Saturday's clash. Watch
for them.
At the right guard position
will be stocky Don O'Connell,
captain of the squad and an al-
most immovable object at the
center of the lightweight line.
Don played guard and fullback
in high school and was one of
the first to turn out when Coach
Keen organized his squad last
His rugged, determined play won
the respect ofahis teammates who
elected him captain at the end
of the season. Don wants to coach
high school football and wrestling
someday, but his immediate ob-
jective is to lead his team into
the win column Saturday.
* * *
JERRY BURNS will start Sat-
urday at quarterback and will do
most of the punting. Jerry's strong
passing arm and his booming
punts have made him one of the
most valuable men on the team.
He got his prep school training,

BRUISING?-Lightweight full-
back Bud Marshall will be doing
the line plunging in Saturday's
game with Ohio State.
at powerful Catholic Central of
Detroit where he played quarter-
back from the single wing forma-
tion. He seems to be doing just as
well in Keen's T.
At left half will be John Wil-
cox, a stellar back last year and,
again this season. Although
John played center for three
years at Redford High, he was
moved to the left half slot when
he came to Michigan, and his
highly successful scooting style
of running has kept him there.
John has such an educated toe
that he kicked the extra points
for both the Jayvees and the
lightweights last year.
Filling the right half slot will
be Pren Ryan, who was a one-man
circus in the intrasquad game last
week, scoring three touchdowns,
and running brilliantly. Keep an
eye on him Saturday.
* * *
BUD MARSHALL will amaze
you with the way he drives
through the center of the line. His
broomstick legs pumping like a
steam engine, Bud is a difficult
man to tackle, and he should pile
up a lot of yardage for the Wol-
These men form the nucleus of
a powerful lightweight unit. But
there is a great deal more talent
on the team and a terrific amount
of fight. So for an exciting battle
of -the gridiron, trot down to Ferry
Field at 10 a.m. Saturday.

By MURRAY GRANT ... Daily Sports Editor
WITH SEVEN WINS out of nine attempts last week, we moved our
average up to a shade under the .700 mark as our season's total,
reads 39 wins and 17 losses.;
Wisconsin fooled us as the Badgers finally decided which team in
the Big Nine has the least.. They met Iowa, another have-not, but
the Hawkeyes had more than we thought. Final score, Iowa, 19, Wis-
consin, 13.
We also let our hopes run away with us as Ohio State became,
instead of a sentimental favorite, a two-time loser. Northwestern
added the Buckeyes to their list as they head for the Rose Bowl.
MICHIGAN-NAVY-A soft touch to end all soft touches. Or so
the scribes tell us. But this Navy team has potentialities. They have
yet to realize those potentialities as I have ruefully noticed. But since
Notre Dame is on top of the heap by virtue of its owerwhelming vic-
tory over the Middies last week, Michigan will be out to do just a
little better. The Wolverines to romp with a better than 34 point
MINNESOTA-PURDUE-The Gophers are beginning to move
after losses to Michigan and Northwestern. Purdue can't even get
started. This will be another defeat for Stu Holcomb as the
Gophers down a Bollermaker or two.
NORTHWESTERN-WISCONSIN-This is a case of atomic war-
fare versus a slingshot. Wisconsin hasn't even got a great quantity of
rocks. The Wildcats have sharpened their claws on Ohio State and
now should rip the Badgers to shreds in preparation for the big Notre
Dame game the following week.
ILLINOIS-IOWA-The Illini have come into their own. They
haven't won many ball games, but they have shown exceptionally
well in their last three outings. You can put this one in the vic-
tory column for Eliot and his Indians.
OHIO STATE-PITTSBURGH-The Buckeyes have been like a
rubber ball. They bounced back hard from their loss to Iowa and they
should bounce back and whip the Panthers. But don't count Pitt
out. They showed their teeth in upsetting Indiana and then smothered
Western Reserve. A victory diet is something strange to the Panthers
and they want to continue it. Look for a close game, but Ohio State
will triumph.
NOTRE DAME-INDIANA-Frank Leahy may think he is
doing Michigan a favor. He softened Navy for us and now he
will try to do the same for Indiana. He'll pour it on until the Irish
are satisfied, but the Hoosiers aren't likely to take it lying down.
Still you can't discount the power of Notre Dame. .The Irish
should take a really good ball game.
PENN-PENN STATE-Two undefeated titans of the Keystone
State get together that will leave only one when the smoke has cleared.
The Quakers have had trouble, but the Nittany Lions have had more.
Michigan State made them fight doggedly for a tie and Penn State
played great football. This is another story. Penn is favored, but
this corner thinks it may regret this game. Elwood Petchel and com-
pany are aiming for an upset and we think they may spring it. Penn
State in the upset of the day.
UCLA-CALIFORNIA-The Bears keep moving along. This
week, another big test, and a chance to let the experts compare
Northwestern and Californi. The Wildcats triumphed, 19-0 in
the season's opener. Can California do as well as they roll on to
another victory?
DARTMOUTH-COLUMBIA-They should only play three quar-
ters in Columbia's Baker Field. If they did, the Lions might be one
of the East's top teams. They are woefully weak in reserves and
week after week they lead until the final minutes. Dartmouth is an-
other strong team and they should have too much for Columbia.
GEORGIA TECH-TENNESSEE-The Engineers are rolling toward
an undefeated season and a Bowl bid. Tennessee can't match
that, but they put up a great battle against North Carolina before
falling, 14-7. Tech still has too much and, though it will be close, the
Engineers should beat the Vols.

A tough line and a brushed-up
offense should be enough to keep
the Michigan State Spartans in
trouble when they meet the Wol-
verine jayvees in the second half
of their home and home series at
3 p.m. this afternoon on South
Ferry Field.
Don Robinson's forces are in
their best shape of the season as
they attempt to run their victory
streak to three in a row. With
the varsity tapering off their
week's preparation for Navy, the
jayvees have had a chance to whip
their offense into 'shape' and
should be ready to throw some
Michigan backfield magic at the
* * *
IN THE FIRST meeting of the
series, the Wolverines crept out on
the long end of a 21-19 decision.
For all practical purposes the af-
ternoon's activity turned into two
games for the price of one.
State roared to a 19-0 lead in
the first half then stood amazed'
as the Wolverines charged back
to push over three touchdowns in
the second half.

ANXIOUS to field his best of-
fensive unit, Robinson will start
Bill Jennings at left half, John
Obee at right half, Norm Jackson
at fullback and Irv Small at quar-
Small has displayed excellent
ability in leading the jayvees to
a pair of wins and strengthened
his claim on the quarterback job
by tossing a couple of good passes
in the first MSC game.
PACKING THE weight up front
will be George Sutherland and
Rosum Tanjourian at the ends,
John Hess and John Eizonas at
tackles, Al Fitch and John Ma-
turo at guards and By Lasky at
Except for the first half lapse
in the first MSC game, the jay-
vee line has been tough to crack.
Northwestern spent a whole morn-
ing trying to get through it and
never did get there, while the
Spartans found it impregnable in
the second half of their game.
