'M' Wary of Wildcats After Army Loss

Michigan students fortunate
enough to be included in North-
western's Dyche Stadium sellout
Saturday or those perched close
to Quad and Fraternity television
sets will see their Wolverines take
the field in white uniforms for
the first time in the Maize and
Blue's 60-year grid history, Coach
Bennie Oosterbaan revealed at
yesterday's practice session.
The switch is due to a new
Western Conference ruling which
requires the visiting club to wear
a "sharply contrasting" jersey
color. Since the Wildcats' hue is
purple, Michigan's traditional blue
will be by-passed this time.
* * *
SATURDAY'S color switch will
also mark the first game appear-
ance of a Wolverine squad in any-
thing but blue since the 1920's.
In those years, the club wore yel-
low when the occasion warranted.
In other seasons the opposing
club broke out their whites to
battle Michigan, but from now

on it will be different. Ironical-
ly, it was a white-jerseyed Army
eleven that snapped the Michi-
gan winning streak last week.
Halfback Leo Koceski and cen-
ter Bob Erben, both slightly in-
jured in Saturday's battle, saw
scrimmage work in yesterday's
sun-bathed practice, while ace
tailback Chuck Ortmann and end
Irv Wisniewski were dressed but
did not take part in heavy scrim-
mage work.
The Michigan Board of strategy
put their defensive charges
through the paces against the
purple's T-formation plays. Spe-
cial emphasis was placed on aerial
protection, readying the club for
the airways thrusts of Wildcat
signal-callers Don Burson and
Dick "Posey" Flowers. End Ossie
Clark was a standout in the line
work.
NATIONAL HOCKEY LEAGUE
Detroit 2, Boston 1.

By JOHN BARBOUR
The beautiful truth is that
Northwestern hasn't beaten Mich-
igan since 1937, when the Wildcats
took us into camp on the short end
of a 7-0 score.
The awful truth is that since
that time they have tied us twice.
No one who was here can forget
the three games in 1946 that be-
gan with Army.
* * *
AFTER MICHIGAN had put up
the gamest fight against Army in
two years, they faced a strong
battling Northwestern team, and
by the grace of Jim Brieske's foot
came out with a 14-14 tie. But as
a result it was a tired Michigan
ball club that faced Illinois the
next week,tand fumbled their way
into a 13-9 defeat.
The overall total of all games
won and lost since Michigan be-
gan playing Northwestern in
1892, gives the Wolverines the
edge 15 to six. But the two tied
games since 1937 were the only
ones that the two schools failed
to decide.
The series got off to a bad start
in 1892 when the Wildcats, play-

ing in the 12 game Wolverine
schedule got off with a 10-8 win.
They played in notable company
that year, when teams like Cornell,
Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Purl
due were gathered on the Maize
and Blue schedule for the first or
second time.
* * *
THAT YEAR must have condi-
tioned the Wolverines because
they came back to skin the Wild-
cats, 72-6, in 1893.
That was the highest score

that the Wolverines ever rolled
up over the 'Cats. But Michigan
wasn't the only team in the con-
ference to boast a victory edge
on the Purple. In fact the only
teams that haven't topped the
Evanston squads have been Pur-
due and Indiana.
Northwestern has topped the
Conference three times, in '30, '31,
and '36, and has finished second in
five seasons. They set up house-
keeping in the cellar for nine cold
winters.

MINNEAPOLIS-(/P)-A pleas-
ant young fellow whose keen foot-
ball sense puts him in the oppos-
ing team's backfield quite a bit has
been chosen as Lineman of the
Week.
Named in the Associated Press'
third poll of the season was Cal-
tyon Tonnemaker, Minnesota's
burly center. Chief reason for his
selection was his play in the
Northwestern game last Saturday,
won by Minnesota, 21-7.
"It was Tonnemaker who
wrecked us in that first half," said

Don Heap, assistant Northwestern
coach. The Gophers led, 14-0, at
halftime.
Heap wasn't exaggerating. In
his line-backing position on de-
fense, "Tonny" smelled out virtu-
ally every play Northwestern tried
and made more than his share of
tackles.
A lot of times his ability to di-
agnose plays put him on the
ground in the middle of the Wild-
cat backfield, the ball carrier
clutched in his arms.

CHICAGO-Brushing the splin-
tered goal-posts off sagging
shoulders, the football swami
guesses again:
NOTRE DAME 21, TULANE 13
-The Irish know they must win
this one for a shot at the national
crown. It will be a rousing scrap
between revenge-seeking Tulane
and a Notre Dame club for whom
the honeymoon (Indiana, Wash-

The Famous

11

ington and Purdue) is over. But
even inspired to avenge a 59-6
plastering by the Irish in 1947,
the Green Wave will find Notre
Dame's Sunday punch tough to
handle.
MICHIGAN 19, NORTH-
WESTERN 7-The Wolverines
have been tumbled by Army,
but they'll be making their Big
Ten debut against Northwestern
Saturday and it will be tough
on the Wildcats. Northwestern
still is trying to find itself after
successive losses to Pittsburgh
and Minnesota.
MINNESOTA 14, OHIO STATE
7-Minnesota's line is the best in
the midwest, if not the country.
The Gophers have Billy Bye and
Dick Gregory to match the fleet
Buckeye backs. Ohio's chances,
with fullback Vic Janowicz out
because of injury, may rest on
passing over the Gopher behe-
moths.
WISCONSIN 14, NAVY 13-It
should be an eye-lash finish be-
tween two fast-coming elevens.
The Badgers gave California a
sizzling debate before bowing, 35-
20, last Saturday. The Middies
have surged since bowing to
Southern California, 42-20, with
wins over Princeton (28-7) and
Duke (28-14).
Mann Leads
Pass Catchers
DETROIT-A)-End Bob Mann
of the Detroit Lions stood out
today as the best pass catcher in
the early stages of the National
Football League campaign.
Figures released by the NFL
offices in Philadelphia showed
the former University of Mich-
igan star has caught 16 passes
for 176 yards. Bud Shipley of
the New York Bulldogs is sec-
ond with 14 completions and a
162 yard total.
Frank Enke of the Lions rates
as the No. 4 passer of the league
as he has tossed 32 completions in
75 tries for 372 yards. Clyde Le-
force of Detroit is no. 7 with 14
completions on 20 tries for 140
yards.
