TURKEY DAY TUSSLES:
Penn, Cornell Clash in Ivy League Tilt,
Longhorns Meet Texas Aggies Today
NEW YORK-()-A number of
traditional Thanksgiving Day bat-
tles usher in the week's college
football schedule today, and then
on Saturday the final full salvo of
the '49 season will echo across the
nation's playing fields.
Headlining as usual the closing
Saturday of the fall madness will
be the service clash at Philadel-
phia between Army's unbeaten
forces and a Navy team which has
come strongly at the fag end of
the race, which is where it counts.
Some 102,000 will witness the col-

MAGNETIC Notre Dame,, gen-
erally regarded as the greatest
touchdown machine in the coun-
try, plays Southern California on
Saturday at South Bend. The
Irish, stretching their schedule,
will get in a final lick at Southern
Methodist a week later before
putting away their gear.
Penn and Cornell meet at
Philadelphia in the most import-
ant of the Thanksgiving fixtures.
The Quakers, undefeated within
the Ivy League, can win the
title either with a victory or a
tie, but Cornell's slick offense
has captured much support and
the result is regarded as a toss-
Texas engages the Texas Aggies
at College Station in another Tur-
key Day rivalry which used to be
the biggest thing in the Southwest.
But this time they will knock each
other around strictly for their
own pleasure while .the fans im-
patiently await Saturday's colli-
sion at Houston between Rice and I
Baylor for the Southwest Confer-1
ence crown and an automatic ap-I
pearance in the Cotton Bowl.

AS BOTH the Big Nine and'
Pacific Coast Conferences wound
up their schedules last week, most
of Saturday's other offerings of'
any importance concern Southern
teams. Oklahoma, the nation's
No. 3 outfit behind Notre Dame
and California, is not expected to
find the Oklahoma Aggies very
tough to take at Norman.
An explosion which should
shake houses for miles around
will take place at New Orleans.
Tulane, having recovered gamely
from its mid-season mauling at
South Bend, smashes into a
powerful Louisiana State team,
with a rich Sugar Bowl bid prob-
ably at stake.
Louisiana State, though an in-
and-outer, still is the only club
to have beaten Rice, and nothing
would please the boys from Baton
Rouge more than to hang one on
Tulane. This one might just pos-
sibly get rough toward the end.
* * *
THE TARHEELS of North Caro-
lina, with Charlie Justice again
on the rampage, are favored to
close with a victorious rush against
Virginia at Chapel Hill and pos-
sibly salvage a Sugar Bowl invi-
tation from a somewhat unhappy
Doak Walker and his Southern
Methodists, humbled by Baylor in
a free-scoring game last week,
prepare for Notre Dame as best
they can by playing Texas Chris-
tian at Fort Worth.

HILLSDALE-(P) -Coach Jack
Petoskey of Hillsdale College's un-
beaten, untied football team an-
nounced yesterday that his eleven
had accepted an invitation to play
Evansville College in the second
annual Refrigerator Bowl game
at Evansville, Ind., Dec. 3.
Hillsdale won nine games dur-
ing the regular season and boasts
halfback Bill Young, whose 131
points currently ranks him as
the highest scorer among the
nation's collegiate football play-
Petoskey said Evansville played
in the inaugural Refrigerator Bow
game last year. He added that i
had a record of six wins, a tie and
two losses in regular season play
Jackson Only Regular Guard
Returning to 1950 'M' Eleven
By JOHN BARBOUR
Last year, Coach Bennie Poster-
baan lost three top-flight guards
through graduation; this year, he
loses two more, Don McClelland
and Lloyd Heneveld.
But he won't be without any tal-
ent for the nucleus at the guard
position of next year's team. Re-
turning to the wars will be a tough,
180-pound junior, Allen Jackson.
THROUGHOUT the season just
past, Jackson has been performincr
in excellent fashion.
In 1948 Jackson appeared in
five of the seven games picking
up varsity experience against
Purdue, Northwestern, Navy,
Indiana, and Ohio State.
He was channeled into the guard
position, although he never played
there before. He usually plays de-
fense. but when Lloyd Heneveld
was hurt in the Illinois game, Al
camne out to play more than half
the game in top offensive as well
as defensive form.
AL BEGAN his football history
at Redford High in Detroit where
he played end, tackle, and fullback
depending on the coach's decision.
He also went out for track special-
izing in the pole vault, but when
he tried out at Michigan he found
he was too big.
Nevertheless he tied the De-
troit All-City record (since brok-
en) at 11' 9".
Out for Freshman football in the
- fall of '47, Jackson was a member
of a selected squad that ran off
plays against the varsity because
of the weak JV team that year.
WHEN HE returned to school
the line was filled with such not-
ables as Dom Tomasi, Quent Sick-
les, Stu Wilkins, Bill Pritula and
Dan Dworsky, not to mention an
all-star aggregation of ends.
Football is only one of the
talents of the versatile Mr. Jack-
son. He played Tom in the Stu-
dent Players' production, "The
Time of Your Life," and the
mother-in-law in the Union
Light Opera last year. He also
does cartoons now and then for
The Michigan Daily and Gar-
On the field Al claims the two
men he has learned most from are
Dom Tomasi and Al Wistert.
"Their general demeanor and phy-
sical skill are extremely inspira-

BUT EVEN though most of as aren't going home to a home-cooked Thanksgiving dinner,
we have much for which we can be grateful. This is the time for us to count our many blessings
at the University of Michigan. tere we have the opportunity of obtaining life long friendships,
stimulating exchanges of ideas, and an education which will help us appreciate the many free-
doms offered in America. Freedom of expression and worship are essential and can only be
appreciated by thinking Americans. We may not be able to enjoy that Ihanksgiving dinner of
mother's this year and give thanks in our own homes, but we can be thankful for the blessings we
