WITH A LUSTY NINE out of ten correct guesses in last week's
prognostications our season's average took a tremendous leap
way back over the .700 mark.
Only the Georgia Tech-Tennessee scramble marred our perfect
record as our favorites came through in great style. With 48 wins
and 18 losses, our average now stands at .727.
* ** *
MICHIGAN-INDIANA-The Wolverines get another crack at
bettering Notre Dame's score and moving into a commanding lead
over the Irish in the AP poll. Notre Dame won by 36 points, maybe
Michigan will win by 37.
MINNESOTA-IOWA-The Gophers may not be leading the
Big Nine, but they've got the top offensive and defensive club
according to the statistics. Iowa hasn't got anything except a
fighting spirit. Minnesota will move on to another victory, but
they aren't going anywhere.
PURDUE-PITT-Pitt has been running hot and cold this season,
but Purdue has just been running frigid. Pitt took a bad beating at
the hands of Ohio State and they shouldn't fare too well against
the victory-starved Boilermakers. Purdue to romp.
NORTHWESTERN-NOTRE DAME-Northwestern has plenty at
stake in this battle of two titans. Like most of the other top Big Nine
schools, the Wildcats are dropping the Irish from their schedule
after this game. This is the year for Northwestern. They have a
Rose Bowl bid almost clinched and a victory over Notre Dame would
heal a lot of wounds. But the Irish still play football for keeps and
much as we'd love to see that upset, we'll begrudgingly stick with the
favorite, Notre Dame. .
ILLINOIS-OHIO STATE-On a basis of their showing against
Michigan the Illini have been installed as favorites in this one.
But the Bucks have a well-rounded attack and this is going to be
our upset of the week. Ohio State in a real thriller to set the
stage for a mighty battle between the Buckeyes and Michigan
a week hence.
WISCONSIN-MARQUETTE-The Badgers have to win sometime.
And this looks like the tweek. Marquette has hopes, but not much
else. Wisconsin should win this one, but then again they should have
won a few others.
* * *C
NAVY-COLUMBIA-Here is a contest between a couple of teams that
have run into tough schedules and more than their share of bad
luck. The Lions are a good ball club for three quarters and the
Middies fight all the time. Columbia has won a couple this season,
but Navy is still looking. So, putting our jinx on the Navy Blue and
Gold, we'll pick the Middies.
ARMY-PENN-The Army has got it again, they've come up
with another juggernaut. Penn is good, but they had a rude
awakening last week. Maybe they'll be up for this game, but
Army is the stronger team. The Cadets to win, but not easily.
CORNELL-DARTMOUTH-The Big Red and the Big Green
tangle in another top Eastern brawl. Cornell has lost only to Army,
while Dartmouth seems to gather strength each week. It's a toss-up
but since we're using an Indian penny we'll pick the Indians of Dart-
mouth to triumph in a very close game.

Three Touchdown Rally
Beats Wisconsin, 20-12
Victory Keeps Team in Running for Title;
Ryan, Marshall Star in-Second Straight Win
After spotting Wisconsin a 6-0 halftime lead, Michigan's 150-
pound gridders roared back for three touchdowns to gain a 20-12 vic-
tory yesterday, and stay in the running for the little Big Nine title.
This game ended the Badger schedule giving them a record of
three wins and one loss. Michigan, with two wins in three starts,
can tie Wisconsin for the crown by beating Ohio State next week.
TWO OF THE WOLVERINE scores were made by fullback Bud
Marshall; and Prentice Ryan, a standout onoffense and defense, all
afternoon, went over for the other.
The line, led by Captain Don O'Connell, was magnificent,
opening holes for the' Michigan backs while holding the Wis-
consin running attack to 88 yards.

Distance Men
Run Throuoh
Rounding out a month and a
half of pre-season practice, Mich-
igan's hard working distance men
went through their final time trial
under the watchful eyes of year-
ling coach Don Canham and his'
assistant Elmer Swanson.
The one and a quarter mile dis-
tance was swiftly covered by both
varsity and freshmen alike, there
being sufficient participation to
warrant two separate sections in
the event.
The varsity was led by Bruce
Vreeland, Shel Capp, and Ted
Birdsall, with Doug Parks, War-
ren Dwyer, Fred Stoliker, and
Arnold Gowans following close
on their heels.P
Fiery haired Vreeland's time was
a good 6:40. Half-mile stalwart1
Bob Thomason started well but
was forced to pull up midway
through the race because of a
turned ankle.I
Don McEwen and Aaron Gor-t
don paced the freshmen thin-
clads to a good showing, with
Ron Packer, Bill Hickman, and
Larry Lange furnishing the clos-
est competition. The freshmen
have been out in force since the
beginning of the semester, and
have shown fine form in their
work to date.l
This time trial is to be followed 1
by a team race today and two
other events next week, after
which the entire squad will retire
to Yost Field House, where they
will train until the latter part of
January when the indoor season
'J' Fresh men
Michigan's freshmen football
team wound up its fall practice ses-
sions yesterday with the 35 nu-
meral winners running through a
light drill and posing for the squad
These 35 youthful gridders are
the cream of the crop of nearly
140 frosh that answered Coach
Wally Weber's call for practice
eight weeks ago.
In this relatively short period
the colorful frosh mentor and his
assistants have cone a tremendous
job in developing the green inex-
perienced group that greeted them
the first day.
The best indication of the
strength of the team is the terrific
showing the frosh made in scrim-
mage against Don Robinson's jay-
vees. Several times the "B" team
was lucky to play on even terms
with the first year footballers and
on one or two occasions were com-
pletely outclassed.

The Wolverines had two scoring
scored, but they fumbled away the -
first and lost the second through
a penalty.
* * .
AFTER THE Maize and Blue
had moved the ball to Wisconsin's
20, Ryan fumbled and Bill Mc-
Cormick recovered for the Badgers.
Michigan got another break in
the second quarter when Bruce
Borden, standing back to punt,
fumbled the pass from center
and was hit on his own 39-yard
On the first play Ryan sped

Marshall ran to the five, but the
gain was nullified by an offside
penalty and the Wolverines were
stalled once more.
* *
IT WAS HERE that the Badgers
took over and moved for their first
touchdown, and it was a Michigan
penalty that got them started.
McCormick made two yards to
the 15, and then the Wolverines
were penalized for unnecessary
roughness. This 15-yard gift
took the Badgers out of the
danger zone.
In 12 plays, the invaders
marched to the Michigan 20, but
the Wolverines held them to five
yards in three downs. Then left
half Tom Stouthamer faded back
and threw a pass to Dwaine Dick-
inson on the goal line. Dick Ko-
cinski's kick was wide.
*' * * ,
WITH THE opening of the sec-
ond half, the Wolverines were a
new team. The first three times
they got their hands on the ball
they went all the way.
After Moorish ran the kickoff
to the Michigan 32, the Maize
and Blue scored in 10 plays with
Marshall plunging over from the
one-foot line.
Michigan scored the extra point
when Wilcox, back to kick, took a

ing a 66-yard drive in which he
accounted for over half of the
yardage. Wilcox' kick was good
and Michigan led, 14-6.
The last Wolverine score came
in the fourth period when Mar-
shall went over from the two.
Wilcox kicked wide on this try.
Wisconsin came back to score
after Coach Cliff Keen sent in his
reserves. Halfback Ralph Haffey
cut inside his right end and sprint-
ed 51 yards to score. Kocinski's
attempt was again wide, and the
Wolverines maintained possession
of the ball until the game ended.
