Meet Copped
By Williams
Williams' House and the For-
estry Club won annual Intra-
Mural cross country titles in their
respective divisions as the two
mile jaunt was run yesterday.
Though there was only one race
run, scores for both the Residence
Halls and the Independents were
kept separately.
THE INDIVIDUAL winners were
Jack Williams of Williams House
and Carl George of the Foresters
with Williams the actual leader
across the finish line.
Williams House had 51 points,
paced by their first place of
Williams as well as a fourth and
a fifth taken by Mansour and
Frank Cooper respectively. The
remaining two places were 20th
and 26th.
Prescott House was second in
the Residence Halls with 55
points, led by Paul Shaler who
took second place. Their other
placers were bunched at 10th,
12th, 15th, and 21st.
FINISHING THIRD was Bob
Cutting who helped Hinsdale take
fourth place with 128 points, while
Greene House was ahead in third
with 71 points. Lloyd was fifth
with 130 points.
Only three independent teams
competed. The Foresters winning
score was 30 points just ahead of
MCF with 32, while the Newman
Club had 58 team points.

STARRING JOHNNY KARRAS:
Illinois Backs Spell Trouble For '

*:

( )

By JOE EPSTEIN
An Illinois team, whose Rose
Bowl hopes depend on a football
victory Saturday, comes to Ann
Arbor with a backfield capable of
causing a great deal of offensive
gridiron trouble.
Big gun in the Illini attack is
halfback Johnny Karras, Cham-'
paign's candidate for a 1950 All-
American berth.
* * *
KARRAS will not, however, be
in top shape for the Michigan
game. The fleet halfback twisted
an already injured ankle in the
shower room after practice.
Illini coach Ray Eliot still rat-
ed Karras a starter in Saturday's
game, but added, "Johnny won't
be able to run as he spould this
week. Doctors' reports show the
sprain will definitely hamper
him."
Last year, however, despite a
bruised heel which gave him trou-
ble, Karras set a new Big Ten
rushing record by running 732
yards in 109 attempts. And, this
year Karras has gained more yard-
age in the first five games than
he had last year at this time.
KARRAS, one of the Western
Conference's most elusive runners,
has both speed and determination.
Last week against Indiana, Karras
gained 143 yards.
F-llback Dick Raklovits, who
has gained 420 yards this season
to chase Karras for team honors,
is the Illini's top scorer with six
touchdowns to his credit. Rak-
lovits, who played mainly on de-
fense last season, has been a
mainstay on the Illinois offense."
Sam Piazza, 150 pound scatback,

has the best yards-per-try average
among the regulars. The small
halfback has piled up 142 yards,
an average of 7.2 yards per try.
ELIOT also will utilize the ser-
vices of Don Stevens and Ronnie
Clark, and a potent passing quar-
terback by the name of Fred Major
who has completed 23 out of 43
passes this year for a yardage gain
of 335 yards.
The Illinois backfield could make
or break all Ilini hopes for a New
Years Day trip to California.

Has Anybody

Jim Hunt is a, tired man. He
looks as though he were at the
point of complete exhaustion.
The mat at his office door is
worn thin.
JIM HUNT is the Michigan
trainer. Need more be said?
Chuck Ortmann continues to
nurse a tender ankle/ Leo Ko-
ceski hobbles about on an ailing
knee. Roger Zatkoff is slowly re-
covering from a sprained ankle.
John Hess is hindered by an in-
jured leg. Don Oldham is suffer-
ing from an aggravation of an
old leg injury. Bill Ohlenroth has
a complaining back. (With _a
broken arm, Frank Howell no
longer comes under Hunt's juris-
diction.)
And Bennie Oosterbaan is look-
ing for the aspirin.
FOR GOOD REASON. He has
seen two right halves-Leo Ko-
ceski and Frank Howell-victimiz-
ed by serious injuries. His third

The weather may belie the fact
but ice hockey is due to return to
Ann Arbor soon.
Michigan's genial hockey coach
announced the start of preseasonl
drills for the 1950-51 campaign toi
get underway tomorrow at the
Michigan Coliseum.1
* * *
LED BY the returningscoring
wizards Gil Burford, Neil Celley
and Earl Keyes, the Wolverines
will pack an offensive punch that
should equal or even exceed that1
of high-scoring Maize and Blue
sextets of the. last few years.
Backing up this talented trio
are four returning lettermen,
Bob Heathcott, Paul Pelow, Joe
Marmo and Al Bassey. Up from
the freshman squad Heyliger is

counting on John Metchefts and
John McKennell.
But the defensive picture pre-
sents the bgest problem for Hey-
liger to solve if his 1950-51 squad is
to follow in the footsteps of its
three immediate predecessors in
the winning of a bid to the four
team playoffs for the national col-
legiate hockey championship.
IN THE Michigan nets Heyliger
must rely on the services of a game
but inexperienced goalie, Hal
Downes, who saw action in but a
handful of games last year.
Among the defensemen the
Michigan mentor can count only
one full time rear guard from
last season's squad and that is
junior Graham Cragg.

Ed May, who alternated between
wing and defense last year, will
probably see most of his action in
the defensive zone this winter.
Defensive help is expected from
another pair of sophomores, Alex
McClellan and Gordie Naylor.
The puck season is scheduled
to get under way Dec. 9 with a
home game on tap against Mc-
Master University.
Following this game the Wol-
verine mentor lists 24 additional
games on his tentative schedule.
Highlighting the Maize and Blue
pre-Christmas home stand is a
two-game series with Toronto Uni-
versity, a team that gave Ann Ar-
bor fans a look at college hockey
at its best last year.

CHICAGO --(AP)- Ohio State's
Buckeyes, no. 1 offensive team in
the Western Conference, may
windup the current season as the
greatest offensive gridiron ma-
chine in Conference "modern era"
history.

Indiana, Minnesota and Iowa, are
pacing the Big Ten. They have
offensive marks of 52.3 points per
conference game, 390.7 total yards

By CY CARLTON
Michigan-Illinois, two names
that spell to the football, fan,
great schools and great men play-
ing a great brand of football.
The names of Grang#, Fried-
man, Oosterbaan, Zuppke and
Yost to mention but a few, are
monickers of fame that come to
mind when one thinks of the Illini
battling the Wolverines.
* * *
TO FIELDING H. YOST goes
credit for perhaps the most amaz-
ing featof the series, stopping the
immortal Red Grange.
In 1924, the great coach of
the Wolverines had retired and
settled down to a life of ease
as Athletic Director at the school
he loved so well. In that same
year, Grange, the Wheaton Ice-
man came galloping into history.
Michigan ventured to Cham-

wingback, Don Oldham, is on the
injured list, but is expected to be
ready for service when the Ilhini
come to town Saturday.
Oosterbaan is t a k i n g no
chances, however. He's devising
several backfield combinations to
skirt possible future injuries.
There's the Ortmann-Don Du-
fek-Bill Putich-Don Peterson ag-
gregation. In this one, Peterson is
at right half. He has been play-
ing behind Ortmann at left half
thus far this season, but ran from
the wing last year.
* * *
THEN THERE'S the Putich-Du-
fek-Palmer-Peterson outfit. Peter-
son moves to left half and Palmer
comes in at quarter.
In the above combinations, ei-
ther Wes Bradford or Oldham
can take over at right half.
'On the line, Oosterbaan is pre-
paring Al Jackson, Dick McWil-
liams and Tom Johnson for offen-
sive duty. All three have served as
bulwarks for the defensive anit
in the first five games on the
agenda. From here on out, they
may be going both ways.
All of this was in evidence yes-
terday afternoon as the Wolverines
ran through long drills. First the
defensive unit went to work on
plays devised to halt the Illini run-
ners-Sam Piazza, Dick Raklovits
and Johnny Karras-and passer
Fred Major.

from under the

Wolverines in the first quarter as
he scored four touchdowns on long
runs.
DESPITE a magnificent battle
in the last three quarters by one
of the most courageous Maize and
Blue grid outfits ever assembled,
the Indians won, 39-14.
This irked the great Wolverine
mentor. He fussed and fumed,
cursing the team "that dared
to beat my Meechegan." The
next year he returned to har-
ness, eager for revenge.
Therefore, 25 years ago this
month, Yost returned to Memorial
Stadium at Champaign, deter-
mined to rip the sheet off the gal-
loping ghost.
YOST PLANNED well. On a
muddy field, the great Grange
and with him, the Illini failed to
score as Benny Friedman held
the scourge of the nation's grid-
irons.
Friedman not only stopped
Grange cold but drove the final
nail into the Indians' coffin as
he kicked an 18 yard field goal,
to give the Wolverines a 3-0
win.
The old man's eyes shined after
the game as they carried both
himself and Friedman' to the
dressing room. He had performed
the impossible, he had stopped
the mighty Grange.
