THREE OLD CLASSICS:
Annual Greek Tussles Are on Tap Today
Three struggles for gridiron su-
premacy on the campus will pre-
cede today's Michigan-Minnesota
Included on the agenda are two
"Mud Bowl" battles and a compe-
tition on South Ferry Field. The
contestants are: Sigma Alpha Ep-
silon vs. Phi Delta Theta, Collegi-
ate Sorosis vs. Kappa Alpha Theta,
and Triangle vs. Tau Delta Phi.
S. A. E.'s annual clash with Phi
Delta Theta on the former's home
field (known as the "Mud Bowl")
is a tradition of long standing.
During the nine year rivalry, the
Phi Delts have emerged victorious
seven times, and were triumphant
last year by a 25-12 score.
Included in "Mud Bowl" fes-
tivities will be a performance by
the SAE marching band, and the
crowning of the Mud Bowl
And speaking of queens, several
from Collegiate Sorosis and Kappa
Alpha Theta will face each other
across a scrimmage line between
halves of the Phi Delt-SAE con-
test. The girls have been lunging
at each other for many a year in
this classic encounter, but unusu-
ally enough, neither team has an
edge in the series.
MORE UNUSUALLY during
the long history of the event,
neither team has been able to
score. This is probably due to the
abbreviated halves of three min-

Rounding out this morning's
schedule of world-shaking grid
battles will be Triangle's second
annual joust with Tau Delta Phi
on South Ferry Field.
WITH A TROPHY at stake, the
Tau Delts will be out to duplicate
last year's 13-6 victory over Tri-
angle. Standout for the Tau Delts
is Moe Katz, who starred in the
two I-M games the team has
played so far. The Triangles have
a rugged squad composed of vet-
erans of last year's ball game, and
are hopeful of an upset.

NEW YORK () College foot-
ball reaches the halfway mark in
the 1949 season today, a day in
which many of the unbeaten fav-
orites in the major conferences
will be struggling to hang onto
their positions at the head of the
At this point, such powers as
Minnesota in the Big Ten, Cali-
fornia on the Pacific Coast, Okla-
honia in the Big Seven and Cor-
nell in the Ivy League look like
the best bets to come through in
their respective circuits.
KENTUCKY and Tulane are
locked in a two-horse race in the
Southeastern Conference, as are
North-Carolina and Duke in the
Southern Loop. And in the South-
west Conference, Texas, Rice and
Baylor are marching shoulder to
shoulder at the head of the par-

upset over Michigan, invades
Iowa, Illinois goes to Purdue
and Ohio States visits Wisconsin
in other big ten games, besides
Minnesota at Michigan.
Indiana rounds out the day's
activity for conference elevens by
playing host to unbeaten Pitts-
burgh in a non-loop engagement.
The Hoosiers and Purdue are the
only twice-beaten teams in league
ALSO OF interest in the Mid-
west will be Big Seven games send-
ing Oklahoma to Nebraska and
Missouri to Iowa State.
The same sort of clarifying
situation exists in the South-
west Conference, where Rice,
upset winner over SMU, invades
Texas and unbeaten Baylor vis-
its underdog Texas A. and M.
Rice, Texas and Baylor all own
1-0-0 records in conference play.
A full schedule in the Pacific'
Coast Conference sends Washing-
ton to California, UCLA to Wash-
ington State, Oregon to Southern
California, Oregon State to Stan-
ford and Idaho to Montana.
Because of those rather omi-
nous facts Michigan is expected
to take to the air this afternoon.
If this game follows the pattern4
of last year's the Wolverines will
have to click on their passing to
win the game.
They amassed only 22 yards
rushing last year when they de-
feated Minnesota 27-14, but
through their aerial offense, the
Maize and Blue piled up 261 yards
and the victory.

MINNESOTA'S offense seems to
have been functioning equally as
well either on the ground or in
the air. The Gophers have aver-
aged five yards per rush in 212
tries, and boast a 5.7 average in
the forward passing department.
The success of the Minnesota
attack can be attributed to left
halfback Billy Bye, and Coach
Bernie Biermai's miracle of
yards, sophomore tailbarek Dick
rrhe stocky youngster, who is the
fastest gridder to wear the Gold of
Minnesota since Sonny Franck led
the Gophers to the national cham-
pionship in 19:40, has lugged the
pigskin 34 times for a net of 295
yards, more than the entire total
of Minnesota's four opponents
thus far. This impressive figure
gives him an enviable average of
8.7 per try.

Michigan has a sizable problem
on its hands to try to handle the
powerful Gopher line and at the
same time keep an eye on these
two stellar performers.
