Michigan Recaptures Lead From Irish in A

Wildcats Vie
To Halt Irish
Victory Chain
CHICAGO-(A)-Will the Rose
Bowl distract Northwestern's once -
beaten Wildcats against unde-
feated Notre Dame Saturday?
THE IRISH better not figure it
that way. Because from the open-
ing whistle, the Wildcats will be
swinging their Sunday punch in
the nation's top football game at
South Bend, Ind.
The scrap before a capacity 59,-
000 should be a real wing-dinger.
First of all, it will be the last
meeting between the two schools
after 23 straight years of feuding.
* * *
NOT SINCE 1940 when North-
western last triumphed, have the
Wildcats turned up with so potent
an aggregation. They'll want to
humble the Irish, not only for
long-overdue revenge, but also to
take a carload of prestige into the
Rose Bowl, if they get by Illinois.

(By The Associated Press)
Michigan has turned the tables
on Notre Dame and once again
reigns as the top football team in
the nation.
The Wolverines supplanted the
South Bend Irish as the No. 1
team, gaining the upper hand in
their dual tug o'war that has
carried over two seasons of bitter
rivalry.

LAST WEEK, Michigan piled up
more first place votes than Notre

runners-up as the second and
third place votes pushed the Irish
three points ahead of the Wol-
verines.
This time it was the Ramblers
who had the edge in top votes,
but Michigan picked up enough
other ballots and wound up 61
points ahead of the second place
Irish.
The Wolverines had 77 first
votes and a 1,836 vote total, while
Notre Dame captured 80 initial
ballots, but were able to amass
only 1,775 points.
MICHIGAN'S recapture of first
place marks the third week in the
season that they have occupied
that spot. Following their 28-0
rout of Northwestern, the Wol-
verines took over from the Irish
and remained on top the next
week when they slapped Minne-
sota down to the tune of 27-14.
But when Notre Dame wal-
loped Navy and Michigan had a
tough time with Illinois, the
ever fickle sportswriters swung
enough votes to the Irish, and
Michigan dropped to second,
The old yardstick of compara-
tive scores came out again this
last week, when the Wolverines
took on Navy. The Irish had piled
up a 34 point margin by sinking
the Middies, 41-7, so Michigan
proceeded to pound out a 35 point
difference in their shut-out vic-
tory.

year, when they topped the list
three times over the entire season.
ARMY MOVED into third place
in this week's selections on the
strength of its 43-0 rout -of Stan-
ford, while the Golden Bears of
California moved up a notch into
fourth with a 28-13 victory over
UCLA.

Scimitar Club
Asks Varsity
Recognition
The Scimitar Club, led by its
president, Ed Micllef, has begun a
vigorous campaign to have fenc-
ing recognized as a varsity sport
by the University.
MOST OF THE other Big Nine
schools already look upon fencing'
as a. major sport and this small
group of Wolverine dueling enthu-
siasts believe is high time that
Michigan followed suit.
As a means to further their in-
terests and to gain experience in
competition, the Scimitars entered
the Invitational Free Weapon
Fencing Team Tournament this
past weekend at Detroit.
WITH PRESIDENT Micllef
showing the way, the lads from
Ann Arbor copped second place in
the ten-team meet, nosed out
only by the La Salle de Tuscan.
Micllef won first place in the
epee event by copping eight out of
nine duels.
THE CLUB must have more new
men if it is to carry out its cam-
paign to gain official recognition
and President Micllef requests that
anyone interested in fencing
should come out for the team.
Instruction is offered at the IM
building Monday through Thurs-
day from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., and to
coeds on Fridays, 8-10 p.m.

By REV BUSSEY
Sports Feature Editor
One of the "staunch old guards"
of the Wolverine party has been
named lineman of the week by
members of The Michigan Daily
sports staff.
He's Quentin Sickels, defensive
left guard who has seen more
years of service for the Wolverines
than any other teammate except
Dick Rifenburg and Gene Derri-3
cotte.
* * *
NAVY'S GAME was just an-
other contest to Sickels. He car-
ried out his assignments with the
same adeptness and fervor as in
previous games. The Middies
couldn't even trickle through his
side of the line.
Along with tackle Al Wistert,
Sickels continually outwitted the
Navy blockers with his cross-
charges. According to Quent, 'We
had to outsmart them because they
were so fast."
* * *
EVENTUALLY Baysinger, Haw-
kins and the rest of the crew wised
up. They simply stopped trying,
to crack through the impregnable

defense thrown up by Sickels and
Wistert.
The Middie struggle is typical of
the performances he has turned in
every week. The Michigan coaches
regard Sickels as "a consistent
player. He charges hard and never
quits." And yet when laurels are
passed out, Sickels is too entan-
gled at the bottom of the pile to
get his share.
*. * *
THE F4NS did sit up and take
notice of Sickels in the first game
last year against Michigan State.

Over the loud speaker was
heard, "Attention, please. This is
an emergency. All plumbers are
wanted in the locker room. It
seems that the water pipes are out
of order and the room is being
flooded."
"Sickels was also in on that last
play," the announcer continued in
the same breath.
Although they weren't at that
game, the Navy boys will never
forget that "Sickels was also in on
that play."

Lightweights Meet Wisconsin
Friday in Championship Tilt

ANOTHER IMPORTANT factor
in Michigan's surge to the top of
the heap came in the defeat of
Georgia Tech by Tennessee and
William and Mary tying North
Carolina.
Both these teams had prev-
iously gotten the lion's share of
the southern vote and with them
out of the picture, the Maize
and Blue snared some of these
important ballots.
Thus, with two weeks remaining
in the season, the Wolverines have

It will be up to lightweights to
do it themselves Friday afternoon.
"It" in this case will be the task
of beating Wisconsin's unbeaten
150-pounders when the Badgers
invade Ann Arbor to battle Mich-
igan for the 'Little Big Nine'
championship.
* *
SHOULD Wisconsin win, it will
mean an undisputed title for the
Badgers who last year shared the
crown with Michigan.
If, on the other hand, the
little Wolverines can upset the
Badgers, then they can once
again tie for the title by
whipping Ohio State in their
return game with the Buckeyes
Nov. 19.
On the always uncertain basis
of comparative scores, the Wis-
consinites rate an edge over the
Maize and Blue. They have
whipped Illinois twice by scores
of 6-0 and 14-0 and have beaten
Ohio State 26-12.
WHILE THE BADGERS were
compiling their perfect record,
Michigan has dropped a 13-6 de-
cision to Illinois and tripped Ohio
State by the same score.
The little Wolverines came out
of the Ohio State tussle in pretty
good physical condition with the
exception of starting tackle Berry
Breakey who injured his leg.
I-M Results I
I-M Touch Football Champion-
ships-Newman Club downed the
G0ostrs, 13-0, in the Independent
division, and Williams House
nosed out Greene Ilouse, 1-0, to
cop the Residence Hall crown.
Each team was given four
downs in overtime where total
yardage was the deciding factor,
after the two residence teams
battled to a scoreless tie.
The Phi Delta Theta-Beta Theta
Pi game was called because of rain.

Frank Whitehouse whose un-
expected return to action gave the
little Wolverines a big boost in
the kicking department will defi-
nitely be available for the remain-
ing games and may see limited
offensive duty this week.
