Wolverines Polish Passing
Attack for Minnesota Battle

The bigger they come the harder
they fall.
That just about sunIs up the at-
titude of the Michigan football
team as the Wolverines prepared
for the invasion of Minnesota's
proud Golden Gophers this Satur-
day. *
NO ONE KNOWS better than
the Maize and Blue squad that
Minnesota wants this one and that
most of the experts are picking the
Gophers to take it.
But the Wolverines were hard
at work yesterday at Ferry Field
preparing their own reception

blue-shirted varsity polishing up
its aerial attack that has complet-
ed 25 passes of 87 attempted in the
first four games of this season.
Charlie Ortmann, Wally Ten-
inga and Chuck Lentz were do-
ing most of the tossing with
everybody but the centers,

guards and tackles on the re-
ceiving end.
The JV squad continued its task
of familiarizing the varsity with
Minnesota's style of -single wing
play and then took over the de-
fensive duties as the Wolverines
ran their own single wing through
a bone-crushing scrimmage ses-
* * *
HALFBACK LEO Koceski was
injured during the scrimmage but
left the field under his own power
to go to Health Service for an
X-ray examination. He spent the
night there awaiting the results
of the X-rays.
Center Bob Erben, who suf-
fered a shoulder injury in the
Northwestern game, is the only
other member of the varsity
squad whose physical condition
is still in'doubt. Tony Momsen,
Dick Farrer and Carl Kreager
worked out in' his place.
JayVee halfback Jim Jackson
sustained a scrimmage injury just
a few plays before Koceski was
hurt and was sent to the Univer-
sity hospital with a fractured arm.
Not until the lights atop Yost
Field House failed to illuminate
the practice field sufficiently did
Coach Oosterbaan call a halt to
the practice.
Gophers Boast
Best Defense,}
CHICAGO-(P)-A good offense
is the best defense, the grid adage
goes, but undefeated Minnesota
works it both ways.
The grinding Gophers will carry
the Big Ten's leading defense and
strongest running attack into their
third Conference start against de-
fending champion Michigan at
Ann Arbor Saturday.
OHIO STATE, trimmed 27-0 by
Minnesota last Saturday, possesses
the League's best combined
ground-passing record.
Official league statistics re-
leased yesterday showed the
Gophers have yielded an aver-
age of only 72 yards by running
and 123.5 by passing in two
league contests against North-
western and the Buckeyes. Ohio
rushed only 48 yards against the
That gave the huge Minnesota
defenders an over-all average of
195.5 yards surrendered, the only
sub-200 total in the conference.
On the attack, the Gophers have
averaged 282.5 yards per game on
the ground, the Big Ten's best
running game since Michigan's 320
average in its 1943 title push.

ALMOST BUT NOT QUITE-Michigan State right end Hank Minarik imitated a ballet dancer on
this pass from quarterback Gene Glick in Saturday's game with William and Mary but he didn't
catch the ball. Defenseman Harry Hilling (16) and Pat Reeves (12) are closing in in event of
completion. State went on to win the game, 42-13. '(AP Photo).
