Wolverines
Look Tricky
To NYWriter
By WHITEY MARTIN
NEW, YORK-(P) - Midweek
Musings:
We thought Michigan in the
first half of its game with Army
had the smoothest, most baffling
attack we have seen in a long time,
with Chuck Ortmann just about
perfect. The 27-6 score doesn't tell
the story of that one.
* * *
Eddie Dyer, with his familiar
"Hi-ya, Pal" and "shore nuff,
podner" is gone from the major
league scene, and everyone hopes
it is just a temporary absence.
The resigned manager is as fine
a gentleman as you would care to
meet.
Eddie was the victim of circum-
stances beyond his control. Crip-
pling injuries turned the Cardi-
nals' pennant drive into a dive.
Maybe he made mistakes, as
who doesn't? But we believe he is
a first-class manager who made
less than his share.
He apparently felt he had worn
out his welcome in St. Louis and
it was time to move on.

ORTMANN TO PUTICH GOOD FOR 10 YARDS TO ARMY'S 30
wolverine's Path to Crown
Blocked by Badger Squad

By DAN GEREB
Will Michigan once again suc-
cumb to the psychological quirk
known in football circles as a
'letdown'?
A fighting mad Wolverine team
was unable to overcome the pow-
erful Army squad in what was
the former's major game of the
season. But to many observers,
Michigan's real test appears in
this Saturday's tussle with Wis-
consin.
AN EQUALLY determined Wol-
verine outfit minus Chuck Ort-
mann met the Cadets last year
and the Oosterbaan coached team
came out on the short end of a
21-7 score to snap a 25 game win-
ning streak.
A disheartened Michigan
team then trudged into Dyche
Stadium the following week and
blew a 2 1-20 decision to North-
western.
Can this year's highly respected
Wolverine eleven blot out the let-
down effects of the Army game
and defeat the Badgers?
MICHIGAN'S woeful grid losses
are definitely not# unprecedented
in football history.
A mighty Minnesota aggrega-
tion of 1949 which was reputed
to have one of the greatest lines
in collegiate football history al-
so became entangled in the let-
down nemisis.
The powerful Gopher team was
riding high'with its-undefeated
record including a 27-0 pasting of
Ohio State. However, a highly
souped-up Michigan squad swept
the Minnesota boys right off their
feet, 14-7.
* * *
THE FOLLOWING WEEK a
sluggish Gopher team just went
through the motions against Pur-
due and the Boilermakers cane
out on top, 13-7.
This letdown defeat not only
removed Minnesota from the
list of the nation's leading grid

WILL IT HAPPEN AGAIN?
'M' Fights Letdown in Badger Tilt

teams but also subsequently
proved to be the factor that
denied them the Big Ten cham-
pionship and a trip to the Rose
Bowl.
Will Michigan follow in the
footsteps of last season's Gopher
squad and lose to their strongest
contender for the Conference
crown on the basis of the effects
of the Army defeat?
* * *
UNFORTUNATELY, the Wol-
verines have more than the conse-
quences of a letdown to contend
with this weekend.

Makes a Man Love a Pipe
and a oman Love a Man

The loss of Leo Koceski may
force Coach Oosterbaan to place
Chuck Ortmann on double duty
for punting purposes.
Ortmann is still not 100% ef-
fective due to his ankle injury and
utilization of his kicking prowess
may tend to aggrevate the injury.
In addition to Koceski's defen-
sive role, Michigan will be hard
pressed to replace the ace half-
back on offense, primarily for the
tricky reverses.

gross country, which only last
ur was revived after a twenty
r lapse as a varsity sport, will
tinue on the same informal
pis this year as it did last year.
Still in the process of building
the squad, Coach Don Canham
Jly intends the workouts as con-
toning for the forthcoming in-
r track season.

HUS A SCHEDULE of meets
quite indefinite, with possibly
till team entered in the Big Ten
4 National Collegiate Cham-
nships. It is quite definite how-

ever that somebody will participate
in these meets.
Leading runner on the Maize
and Blue squad is of course Don
McEwen. The Canadian flash
last year astounded the sports
world with his blazing 300 yard
victory over the heralded Don
Gerhmann of Wisconsin in the
Western Conference cross-coun-
try championships.
Not only did McEwen beat one
of the best distance aces in Big
Ten history, but he beat the three
time winner of the race in the
record breaking time of 19:44.5 for
the four mile course.
* * *
THIS YEAR McEwen is a more
experienced runner, having set nu-
merous records in indoor and out-
door track last year. His top per-
formance to date was a 9:01.9 two
mile effort record breaker in the
NCAA track and field champion-
ships.

Thus McEwen is a definite
threat both for the retaining of
the Big Ten crown and estab-
lishing a new record time. Like-
wise he is to be considered heav-
ily in the National Collegiate
championships.
Naturally this all depends on
whether he will enter these meets
or just take it easy in preparation
for a successful indoor season.
COACH CANHAM specifically
stated that cross country was still
on an informal basis, and that
anything besides weakly practice
meets with small Michigan colleges
was in the probable stage.
Prime among his objectives is
to get freshmen track aspirants
out for fall practice, and ,get the
jump in conditioning them and
the varsity team.

By JIM PARKER
Little boys can sometimes ask
mighty big questions.
Last Sunday after the Army
game a young lad approached a
Michigan student and asked, "Are
you guys still gonna win the Rose
Bowl?"
NEEDLESS TO SAY the Michi-
gan student was caught off guard.
But finally he managed to say, "I
don't know . . . guess we'll have
to win the Conference first."
And back at the Ferry Field
training base of Michigan's de-
fendng Conference co-champs,
the question was referred to ac-
tion in the immediate future.
"Beat Wisconsin"-that is the
first big worry of the Michigan
coaching staff.
* * *
AND THIS Wisconsin game, a
contest that has carried the
"tough" label ever since the start
of the season, now carries the add-
ed burden of coming after an "up"
game.
In terms of physical condition,
head coach Bennie Oosterbaan will'
field the same team against Wis-

consin that fought so valiantly
against the Cadets last week-that
is, with the exception of the in-
jured Leo Koceski.
Yesterday the Michigan squad
