Though Michigan poses a for-

ium according to "Biggie" Munn,

siste yesterday that "we aren't
But after the news from Ann
Arbor gets up to Lansing way,
he'll probably have a lot less rea-
son to even think of shedding cop-
ious tear drops.
"Biggie" could hardly forget the
savage tackling of Dick "Killer"
Kempthorn in last year's 55-0 de-
bacle and his one touchdown, and
if the husky 190-pounder were ab-
sent from the line-up Saturday,
the Spartan coach would cer-
tainly heave a sigh of relief.
And the distinct possibility
that the "Killer" from Canton,
O., would be forced to the side-
lines come Saturday at two be-
came a reality today whein he
pulled either a muscle or a lig-
ament in his left ankle.
Trainer Jim Hunt said, after ex-
amining Kempthorn, that the
massive fullback had not suffered
a sprain and that he would prob-
ably be ready for Saturday's fry.
But the possibility remains that
he may not be able to go for Ben-
nie and the Wolverines.
Along with Danny Dworsky,
top-flight center f r o m Sioux
h Falls, S.D., Kempthorn was slated
to again play line-backer on de-
fense and his absence would mean
greater freedom for G e o r g e
Guerre and the rest of the Spart-
Yesterday's practice session
was highlighted by the passing
attack and the fine receiving
of Dick Rifenberg. The chuck-
was accurate and the snaring
was even better.
Harry Allis, Ozzie Clark and Ri-
fenburg all looked good at end,
with the latter rapidly making the
observers agree that the six foot
three inch Saginaw product will
be forcing a lot of onlookers to
forget Bob Mann.
Dworsky seemed to be his old
self of last year's Indiana game as
his passing from center took on
the aspects of a J.T. White flip-
Again it was the dazzling
speed and amazing footwork of
Leo Koceski that made him look
like another "Bump" Elliott tot-
ing the mail.
The other boys were there too.
Gene Derricotte, Dom Tomasi,
Quent Sickels, Tom Peterson, Pete
Elliott, Al Wistert, and the rest.
Their performance was something
to see. The line was invincible and
the backfield combines were look-
ing better than in any of the oth-
er pre-season sessions.
No, "Biggie" isn't sobbing . . .
ZALE ROCKED BY CERDAN'S RIGHT-Mareel Cerdan, middle-
weight challenger from France, engages in a bit of preliminary
destruction at the expense of Tony Zale in the first round of their

Tuesday night. Cerdan won the title when Zale was unable
to answer the bell for the 12th iound.

HAL NEWHOUSER hurled his
way into a select bracket today,
pitching his 150th American
League victory as the Detroit
Tigers beat the Philadelphia Ath-
letics 5 to 1 at Briggs Stadium.
Only one active pitcher in the
league-Bob Feller - has won
more games than Newhouser,
now in his 10th year with the
Tigers and needing one more
win to become a 20-game win-
ner for the fourth season.
Newhouser scattered seven hits
taking his 19th decision of the sea-
son against 11 defeats.

THE TIGERS WON it for him
in the first inning, converting two
walks and two singles into a pair
of runs off Phil Marchildon, who
promptly retired with a sore arm.
Charley Harris and Bob Savage
worked the rest of the game, giv-
ing the Tigers nine hits altogether.
