Associate Sports Editor
TN THIS WEEK'S edition of
FOOTBALL NEWS, the editor,
who seems to be thrilled with his
own talents as a prognosticator,
sticks his neck out and picks our
Wolverines to dispose of Oregon
by the overwhelming margin of 32
points.
Now that's a lot of tallies, even
in the house that Yost built-why
should Mr. Boyd, this weekly's
boss, go out on a limb that is still
creaking from a slight disturbance
which occurred several days ago
in East Lansing and pick the
Maize and Blue by such a wide
margin.
Well, here's what he has to
say . . . "The Wolverines were
about as good as billed . . .
(they) still have a lot of power
and will smooth out their attack
before long . .. Oregon got off
to a good start but does not
figure strong enough to handle
Michigan." '
Mr. Boyd seems to have hit the
proverbial nail right on the head
-the Maize and Blue just aren't
that bad.
What you folks heard from East
Lansing last Saturday via your
armchairs and radios was the de-
scription of three touchdowns for
Michigan and one for Michigan
State, what you didn't hear was
this...

i

little things that make for a
smooth-operating high geared
offensive can only come with
time and experience.
When things get straightened
gut, this 'rear's Maize and Blue
should be a good, well-balanced
team capable of knocking off all
its 1948 rivals.
And if they get going this week
we've got the feeling that one Mr.
Boyd may be awfully proud of
himself.

I-M News
The 1948 versionof the Annual I-M all-campus tennis tournament
will get under way on Wednesday, October 6th.
Anyone interested in competing for the medals awarded the
champion and runner-up may register at the IM Building. So far,
only 24 have signed up, which is far below the 1947 starting entry of
80.
Last year's winner, Harry Goldberg, is no longer on campus, but
runner-up James Albert will be among those gunning for the coveted
award. The tournament will consist of only singles matches. A sep-
arate tourney for grad students will also start on October 6.
Friday will mark the beginning of the Independent Touch Foot-
ball competition. Four leagues of four teams each will make up the
schedule. There still is room for a few more teams and some individ-
uals that would like to be placed on a team. Those interested may
sign up at the I-M Building.

As has been the case in recent

Here's a quick glimpse of the
torrid American League race
after today's games involving
the three leaders:
Clubs W. L. Pet. G.B. T.P.
Cleveland .95 56 .629 . 3
Boston ....93 58 .616 2 3
New York .93 58 .616 2 3
days, the big bats of Joe Gordon
and Ken Keltner furnished most
of the fireworks today. Between
them they drove in all Cleveland's
runs to give the Tribe their 18th
victory in their last 21 games.
GORDON BATTED in three
tallies with a home run and dou-
ble. Keltner also hammered a
homer and two-bagger, and sent
two mates across the plate.
Bob Feller, although not as ef-
fective as in recent outings, went
the route to register his 19th tri-
umph of the season.
PHrLADELPHIA-(P)-A pair
of Yankee rookies, Bob Porterfield
and Hank Bauer, kept the pen-
nant light gleaming faintly in the

In the sixth inning, with Tom-
my Henrich and Joe DiMaggio on
base and two down, Bauer caught
one of Dick Fowler's fast, inside
pitches squarelyson the button
and the ball's first stop was the
left fieldkroof, high over the 340-
foot mark.

BOSTON-(/P)-Ellis Kinder
wobbled through a dizzy 11-hitter
today to keep alive the Boston
Red Sox' dim mathematical
chances in the waning American
League pennant race by a 5-1 de-
cision over Washington.
IN AND OUT of more trouble
than a tipsy high wire artist, Kin-
der managed to salvage his 10th
victory of the campaign, leaving
the Sox two full games back of the
league-leading Cleveland Tribe
with only three to go.
The men of Joe McCarthy faced
a discouraging uphill struggle just
to stay in it. They are tied with
New York and must wind up their
season wrestling with the Yan-
kees Saturday and Sunday. In be-
tween they play one more with
Washington while New York scuf-
fles with the A's.

DISPUTED TOUCHDOWN-Here's Wally Teninga, number 42,
catching pass thrown by Michigan State's Chandnois. Spartan end
hank Minarik stole ball from Teninga's hands and MSC was
awarded six points. See TALKING SHOP for details.

TO THOSE WHO witnessed Sat-
urday's contest from any half
way decent perch, it was apparent
that Mr. Oosterbaan's charges
were more than one touchdown
better than their upstate rivals.
This isn't sour grapes; it's
fact, pure and simple . . . First
of all, State's single score was
the result of a misconception by
one of the refs. As the inserted
picture shows it was clearly an
interception, not a touchdown.
Secondly the Wolverines exhib-
ited a brand of speed and decep-
tion in the backfield that made

the Spartan backs look like slow
motion artists.
For the most part the ball han-
dling was good and the passing
was well above average. Neither
can be said of the Green and
White.
The Wolverine weakness was
clearly not in a lack of talent,
they showed plenty; but in some
all too numerous errors in basic
fundamentals.
We think offensive blocking
spelled the difference between a
close call and a lop-sided victory.
Apparently well-executed plays
went awry, when from out of no-
where a lone Spartan tackler
brought down a passer or when
the holes failed to open up for
the spinning fullback.
THERE WERE several instances
on end-arounds, when one
well-timed block would have sent
Dick Rifenberg away into open
country.

Difficulties of this brand can,
and will, most assuredly be cleared
up. After all, eight of Michigan's
starting eleven were not on the
Rose Bowl offensive team.
The talent is there, but the

17 victories and as many defeats,

By ROG GOELZ
You can stop feeling sorry for
Oregon which, until a few weeks
ago, was said to have the misfor-
tune of being on Michigan's 1948
football schedule.
When the Webfoots were slated
to inaugurate a series between the
Wolverines and the West Coast
school, followers of Michigan were
heard to groan. "Here's another
pushover, when do we get a good
home-game?"

een's Lightweights Improve
After First Week of Practice

With one week of practice un-
der their belts," the 150-pound
gridders displayed a marked im-
provement as they ran through a
rough scrimmage under the
watchful eye of Coach Cliff Keen.
Experimenting with his various
backs to find the strongest of-
fensive combination, Keen saw
Jerry Burns, Ed Morey, Bud Mar-
shall, Prentice Ryan, and Jim
Clark break away for several long

THE PAST few weeks have
completely changed the picture.
Oregon comes roaring out of the
West boasting an eight game win-
ning streak and three of the
coast's finest backs, Johnny Mc-
Kay, Norm Van Brocklin and
Clare Tom.
To stop this charge, Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan and his
staff are pulling the Wolverine
squad out of the let down over
their close 13-7 game with the
Spartans last Saturday and are
trying to replace the injured
Gene Derrcotle and doubtful
Otarter Dick Kempthorn.
Cor ,Jinm Aiken is bringing a
modifled verson of the "'1"' to
Ain Arbor :endei confident that
Norn Van Brocklin will use it to
advantage in the Webfoot's at-
tempt to gain back some of the
lost coast prestige after Michi-
gan's thumping routs of Stan-
ford and Southern California.
VAN BROCKLIN is rated as one
of the best backs to come from
the coast in many a year. The
Webfoot back finished tenth
among the nation's punters last
year, averaging 40 yards per try,
was among the top 20 in indi-
vidual offense with an average of
over five yards per try, finished
ahead of any Michigan passer
completing 76 out of 168 passes
for 930 yards and paced his team
to a sea' on of seven victories as
against three defeats.

gains through gaping holes
opened up by the line.
The Wolverine mentor also wit-
nessed some fine passing by
George Sipp and Burns from the
quarterback position.
Keen shifted Burns and Morey
between the signal-calling spot
and the halfback position and
both showed up well at the two
posts.
ZBT Wins 9-0
Zeta Beta Tau pulled an upset
victory over Alpha Tau Omega
yesterday in the I-M touch foot-
