Coach Wally Weber has tabbed

Contrary to the muddled re-c
ports about the comparative
strength of the line and the1
backfield, the choseA five seem I
to prove that the frosh are a
well balanced aggregate.
Three linemen and two backs k
are Coach Weber's selections. I
* * *
DICK BEISON, a rugged, hardk
charging 200 pounder has shown1
up very well At the guard position.t
Playing next to him on the
line in the tackle slot is Jim
Balog, whom Weber describes
as a boy who haseboth the size
and the intensity of a Big Ten
tackle.
At the end position tall Gene1
Knutson, tipping the scales at 210,
has shown exceptional defensive'
ability.
THE PROMISING backs are
Quarterback Norm Canty and full-
back Dick Balzhiser.
Good ball handling especially
from the T, speed and a lot of
know-how makes Canty a nat-
ural at quarterback.
Balzhiser, on the other hand, is
a hard running fullback whose ex-'
perience in spinning will help him
fit into Michigan's single wing
offense.

SIGNIFICANTLY every one of
these fellows was either all-state
or all-conference when playing

memorable afternoon is already
rid history.
* * *
Now a short year later, a spirit-E
ed Wolverine squad embarks for1
he Northland, solid 20-point3
favorites to turn back Bernie
Bierman's charges. Michigan has
an identical two-won, two-loss
record, but the scent of roses are
in the air at Ann Arbor and
chances for a Conference cham-
pionship look good. Just the oppo-
site, Minnesota has dropped four
straight.
* * *
Outside of Army, Ski-U-Mah has
the best record of any club against
tVichigan. Yet the Gophers have
Iropped their last seven meetings
with Maize and Blue squads.
All well and good. But the word
UPSET still haunts the dreams
of the Wolverine coaching staff.
The stage is set, Michigan is the
hero and Minnesota the villain.
It could happen!
* * *
Worse yet, Minnesota isn't that
bad. They have a big team, as
usual, and if the large fellows start
to click it could spell Michigan
blues. The Gophers are bound to
bounce -back one of these Satur-
days and make somebody look
sick. The ax could fall on Michi-
gan.
Bierman, despite the "Goodbye
Bernie" drive, is still a great coach.
A keen sportsman can't forget
th invincible men of the north in
the 1938 to 1943 era.
On the negative side, the Wol-
verines are destined to field an
entirely untried (as a combina-
tion) backfield unit.
Speaking of the right halfback
slot, Oldham has the inside track
at present, since he has been
working with the first crew, but
Oosterbaan said yesterday that
the position was wide open. And
don't forget Don Peterson. The
Racine speedster played a lot of
wingback against the Gophers
last year, and it may be that he'll
see action at that slot if Oldham
or the others fail to come through.
But we'll stick with the Wolver-
ines by two touchdowns.

Tickets are still on sale at
the Athletic Administration
Building for both the Indiana

juries, coupled with the traditional
aspects of the two conference foes
accounts for the absence of any
damaging self-assurance on the
part of the Wolverines.
Don Oldham took over the
chores of the right-halfback slot
vacated by the injured Frank
Howell, and it appears probable
that the Michigan sophomore
will team up with Ortmann, Du-
fek, and Putich to comprise the
first string offensive unit.
Much lies on the shoulders of
Oldham as the Wolverines need

By DAN GEREB
The Wolverines engaged in their
final practice session at Ferry
Field yesterday prior to boarding
a plane for the oncoming "little
Brown Jug" clash at Minnesota on
Saturday.
Coach Oosterbaan sent his in-
jury riddled but nontheless spirit-
ed squad through a thorough tune-
up session in preparation for the
hitherto win-less Gophers.
* * *
NO TRACE of overconfidence,
however, could be detected in the
Michigan corps despite the hapless
defeats of the Bierman led team.
The sudden wave of critical in-

an outside scoring threat to bal-
ance Dufek's thrusts up the, mid-
dle and Ortmann's sling-shot
passes.
* * *
ROGER ZATKOFF'S sprained
ankle has not responded to treat-
ment and the Hamtramack sopho-
more's appearance as a starter is
still doubtful. Should Zatkoff ride
the bench, Lawrence Leclair will
undoubtedly fill in at the line-
backing position.
Tom Kelsey returned from his
Lakewood, Ohio home yesterday
after an emergency had called
him away. Kelsey will resume
his guard duties against Min-
nesota.
Leo Koceski will not make the
trip with his teammates. The
tricky halfback has shown re-
markable improvement with his'
injured knee and appeared on the
Ferry Field premises in a sweat
suit. Though he worked out with
a bad limp, Koceski may be ready
for action next week against Illi-
nois.
Don Peterson, who did quite a
bit of running from the wing-back
position against the Gophers last
year, will probably play offensive
