M' Seeks To Stop Badgers

In 53rd Homecoming


Associate Sports Editor
Ivy Williamson brings his undefeated Wisconsin Badgers into
the Michigan Stadium this afternoon to attempt to spoil the 53rd
annual Homecoming celebration for all of the thousands of Michigan
alumni . . . except himself.
A capacity crowd of over 97,000 is expected to be on hand at
the 2 p.m. kickoff to watch the Wolverines try to get back on
the victory trail against the up and coming Badgers who are un-
beaten in three contests thus far.
IT'S THE FIRST CHANCE that Williamson has had to come
back and haunt his alma mater since taking over the coaching reins
two years ago. He has more reasons to want to win this one than
mere sentiment though.
The Badgers are currently riding on top of the Western
Conference with two important wins over Iowa and highly-touted
Illinois. The Wolverines are another big hurdle they must
topple if they expect to hang on to their lofty perch and eventually
get a bid to the Rose Bowl.
They're hoping to catch the Wolverines on the rebound from
their bitter and heartbreaking struggle with Army last week. Whether
the Michiganders can bounce back from that one is the biggest single
factor determining the outcome of today's battle.
Last year the Maize and Blue couldn't recover after their long
win streak had been snapped by the Cadets. However, they were
favored in that contest and this year it wasn't a great surprise
when they were beaten.
* * * *Ig
WITH LAST. YEAR'S miserable showing against Northwestern

in mind and the importance of this game in the conference race
to consider, the Wolverines presumably will be in better psychological
shape today.
They won't be in top physical condition without the ser-
vices of their experienced right halfback, Leo Koceski. Three
others still have minor injuries but are expected to see full duty.
Harry Allis and Dick McWilliams both have hand ailments while
Al Wahl is troubled with a bad knee.
But to offset that, the incomparable Charlie Ortmann is expected
to be near tQp efficiency for the first time this season. He has been
taking active part in the scrimmages the past week and should be
able to do everything but kick and block.
Sophomore Frank Howell has the job of trying to fill in for
Koceski. He got a real baptism under fire last week in Yankee
Stadium when he replaced Koceski in the second quarter.
DON PETERSON, who capably subbed for Koceski last year when
Leo was out with injuries, will be kept at the tailback slot in the
eventuality that Ortmann needs replacing on offense. '
The injuries have forced the Wolverine pilot, Bennie Ooster-
baan, to modify his two platoon setup a great deal. Several
backfield men may see a lot of double duty along with ends
Lowell Perry and Ozzie Clark.
Oosterbaan is not expected to make any other major changes
in his offensive or defensive teams from that which has been used.
in the previoug contests.
Williamson expects his boys to be in top physical shape for
today's battle. Charlie Yderstad, a veteran left tackle will be back in

TOKYO-Two battalions of U.S.
Parachute troopers jumped unop-
posed into Red Korea between the
fallen capital of Pyongyang and
theManchurian border yesterday

85 miles west from Wonsan in less
than a week, joined the newly-

Sunchon, about 30 miles north of
Pyongyang, cutting off the North
Korean avenue of retreat.

the only Red troop movements

They saw none between the

Judge Denies
Stacy's Plea
.for Remand
Circuit Judge James R. Breakey,
jr. yesterday denied a petition by
the attorney of Robert H. Stacy
to have the arson charge against
Stacy be returned to Municipal
The court ruled that the attor-
ney, Leonard Young, failed to sub-
stantiate his claim that Stacy was
"confused" when he waived exami-
nation in the lower court on Oct.
11. Young submitted his petition
to Judge Breakey on Wednesday
to have Stacy's case remanded to
Municipal Court.
Stacy was not represented by a
lawyer when he was brought be-
fore the court the first time, and
Young claimed that he was not
in a fit mental condition to waive
examination himself at that time.
Young said he would file another
petitoin, probably next Monday.
Stacy, who admitted to the po-
lice that he set the Haven Hall
fire and several smaller fires, has
repudiated all his confessions, ac-
cording to his attorney.

Michigan, including the Michigan,
dState, Whitney, Wuerth and Or-
pheum Theatres in Ann Arbor.
President Alexander G. Ruth-
ven said payment for the stock
will be made over a "long per-
iod of years" and involved no use
of appropriated or other funds
of the University. The only ob-
ligation of the University is to
make payment from the earn-
ings and dividends of the com-
panies, he said.
The deal was praised by M. S.
Gowthorpe, president of the But-
terfield chain in Michigan. Gow-
thorpe added that the transac-
tion involved only Paramount's
minority stock interests and does
not affect the management of the
Butterfield companies.
HOWEVER, two University Re-
gents, RoscoeO. Bonisteel and J.
Joseph Herbert, will have chairs
on the boards of directors of the
Butterfield enterprises.
