Clad Illini Defense

To Give Michigan


Peterson to Give Experience'
To Right Halfback Position

* . *


Michigan can expect to face an
Illinois defense tomorrow after-
noon that surpasses the Minnesota
outfit whichhcaused thehWolver-
ines so much trouble when they
approached pay dirt last Satur-
The Illini rate at the top of the
conference in tid matter of limit-
ing opponents to yardage. Indiana
and Wisconsin, Illinois' two Big
Ten opponents, have been able to
gain an average of only 144 yards.
IN THEIR 7-6 loss to Wiscon-
sin Illinois held the Badger of-
fense to a total of 96 yards, run-
ning and passing. Indiana and
Wisconsin passers have been able
to pick up an average of 4.28 yards
per play, while the rushing attack
of the two teams was limited to
an average of 1.7 yards per at-
Against this rugged defense
the Wolverines will have to get
along without Leo Koceski or
Frank Howell's running ability.
Michigan's chance against the
favored Illini seem to rest with
the effectiveness of Chuck Ort-
mann's passing attack.
Don Peterson worked at the
wingback slot during the majority
of the offensive drills yesterday
afternoon. It now appears that
Peterson will be in the starting
offensive backfield at right half-
back tomorrow afternoon.

WITH PETERSON in the back-
field the Wolverines claim a run-
ning attack with more experience
than it has possessed in the past
couple weeks. Peterson will team

Emphasis centered around the
rushing attack, but passing came
in for its share of attention, par-
ticularly short passes.

BILL PUTICH, Ortmann, Peter-
son, and Dufek worked in the first
backfield with Ortmann doing the
passing. The second backfield was
composed of Pete Palmer, Dave
Hill, Ralph Straffon, and Wes
Bradford with Hill on the firing
The defensive unit worked on
stopping Illinois running plays
which were acted out by the re-
serves. To the defensive line goes
the unenviable task of halting
the rushing attack of Mr. John
Karras and Co. Karras has al-
ready run through the opposi-
tion for 452 yards to date, while
Dick Lovits, the Illini fullback,
is right behind him with 420
Roger Zatkoff, who was suffer-
ing from a sprained ankle, was
back at his line-backing position
yesterday and participated in the
entire session.

Scribes Vote
MV Award
NEW YORK - (A") - Big Jim'
Konstanty, who rose from obscur-
ity to becme the best relief pitcher
in baseball today, is the National
League's Most Valuable Player for
1950-a precedent shattering feat.
Konstanty, whose superb pitch-
ing featured the Philadelphia Phil-
lies' first pennant triumph in 35
years, is the first relief pitcher in
either league ever to win the covet-
ed award.
The 33 - year - old specialist
gained 18 out of 24 first place
votes and piled up 286 out of a
possible 336 points to win the
award with ease. Only two of the
24 members of the Baseball
Writers Association of America
who participated in the poll,
failed to name Konstanty any-
where on their 10 player ballot.
The high honor, crowning point
of Konstanty's meteoric rise to,
fame and fortune, came as a sur-
prise to the bespectacled right-

Dufek Bolsters Wolverines' Faltering Ground Game

When he can't go through them
he goes over them.
This system, which in a lesser
fullback could lead to graduated
mayhem, has put Michigan's Don
Dufek in the gleam of glory in a
season otherwise devoid of same
for the Maize and Blue,
* S *
HE'S NOT as big as the fabled
Broncho Nagurski, nor as speedy
as Army's Doc Blanchard, but this
season he's been the big man and
the fast man in the enfeebled Wol-
verine ground attack.
As a sophomore, drivin' Don
showed glimmerings of his fut-
ure proficiencies in the occasion-
al opportunities he had to take
over for Tom Peterson, the 1948
As a junior, he came into his
own, gaining 392 yards in 122 tries
on the ground for a 3.21 yard aver-
He also led the Wolverines in
scoring, with five touchdowns for
30 points. -
THIS YEAR, his pounding legs
have struck fear into the hearts
of Michigan opponents, his steady
play standing out both in victory
and defeat.
To Army, he was the whirling
dervish of destruction which ate
up yawning hunks of yardage
during Michigan's eminently
successful first half. New York
sportswriters tabbed him as one

of the finest fullbacks seen in
the East this year.
To Minnesota's highly-charged
Gophers, he was the only success-
ful ground-gainer in the Wolver-
ines' unsuccessful bid for an easy
To the Maize and Blue, he's been
the year's top yardage manufac-
turer, with 313 yards in five con-
DUFEK, who did his prep plung-
ing at St. George's High School
in Evanston, is a quiet, unassum-
ing guy off the football field.
But once his cleats begin to
bite turf and his eyes begin to
spot holes in opposing lines, he
undergoes a rather amazing
metamorphosis. With w h a t
would have to be described as a
fiery eye, his demeanor becomes
determined and he takes'on the
"wild abandon" Fritz Crisler us-
ed to ask for in defensive teams.
Dufek's powerful legs are so de-
veloped that it is necessary for
equipment manager Hank Hatch
to outfit him in elasticized game
pants for practice sessions.
The unyielding canvas knicker-
bockers worn by most gridders in
weekday drills have taken a beat-
ing from drivin' Don in the past,
so Hatch's solution saved the Wol-
verines from what was becoming
a fiscal debacle in that province.
Dufek, in his final season at
Michigan, has lived up to the pro-
mise that was symbolized by his

winning the 1949 Meyer Morton
award for the most improved play-
er in spring practice, and he bids
well to go down in grid annals in
the golden company of such im-
mortal Wolverine fullbacks as Ced-
ric Smith, 1917 All-American,
Ralph Steketee, (1918), Bullet Bob
Westfall (1941), and Bill Daley

with Don Dufek at fullback and
Ortmann to give Michigan a rush-
ing attack which may give Illinois
more trouble than they have pre-
viously encountered.
Koceski ran through some of
the plays during the practice ses-
sion yesterday although he was
far from top efficiency. Koceski
did not wear the heavy knee
brace which he used in workouts
Wednesday, but Oosterbaan en-
tertained no hope of using the
Pennsylvania speedster against

the Illinois defense in order to gain
their second Conference win Sat-
urday on their minds, the Wol-
verines worked on sharpening up
their plays in the offensive drill.

This week's competition in the
Intramural professional fraternity
touch football program saw cham-
pions determined in two loops.
Scoring a touchdown and a con-
version in the final 20 seconds of
the game, Alpha Chi Sigma nipped
Law Club "B" to win the League
II title.
* * *
THE BATTLE between the two
unbeaten squads was decided on
a sleeper play. Halfback Riki Ko-
bayashi, a star all season long for
the winner, flipped a pass to Bill
Nemec to work the sleeper to per-
fection. Then to complete his day's
work, Kobayashi heaved the pig-
skin to right end, Ronald Clark for
the extra point, which decided the
tussle and the league champion-
Nu Sigma Nu won its third
successive league I champion-
ship and its tenth victory in a
row in characteristically smooth
fashion whitewashing Phi Rho
Sigma by the count of 19-0.
The future doctors commenced
their scoring in quick order tally-
ing on a 45 yard aerial on the
second play from scrimmage. Tom
Peterson, former Michigan varsity
fullback, was the pitcher hitting
Dick Park in the end zone.

ANOTHER former Wolverine
gridder, Bill Bartlett, passed for
the extra point after the initial
score and then came right back to
snag another Peterson aerial for
a second touchdown.
The final tally of the tilt dis-
played the opportunist attitude
of the winners as Norm Hodgson
intercepted a Phi Rho pass and
scampered 35 yards into paydirt.
With the results of these con-
tests the first three league races
have been decided with Nu Sigma
Nu, Alpha Chi Sigma, and Psi
Omega the winners.
THE TITLE of league IV hangs
in the balance with Phi Epsilon
Kappa and Law Club "A" compet-
ing for the right to enter the play-
offs with the before-mentioned ag-

vius pouring down his worst,

AS GROUND PLAY was obvi-
ously impossible Michigan took the
natural course and traveled by
the overland route. Using this
method, they scored two touch-
downs and an extra point for a
13-0 halftime lead.
Pat Hirschenoff passed for
the entire 13 points hitting
Roger Pollard and Paul Williams
for the six pointers and Bruce
Munger for the extra point.
However, the Presbyterians
came back strong in the second
half to tally three times to stun
the Michigan Co-opu.

RUSS WILLIAMS ran back an
interception for the winners' ini-
tial points of the afternoon. The
combination of Bruce Mase throw-
ing and Eldred Lokker catching
accounted for the second TD. An-
other pass from Lokker to Mike
Liuzzi tied the count at 13 all.

The Wilton Model is of paramount importance in the fashioi
picture of today. This is the model with a minimum of padding
in the shoulders, modified lapels, straight hanging lines, and soft
construction throughout.
It is comfortable to wear and surprisingly flattering to most
men. Which is why most men tend to stay with the Wilton model
once they have experienced the pleasure of wearing it.
May we suggest that if you plan on buying a suit this season
this is the best time. Our selections are at maximum with complete
ranges in sizes and fabrics-prices that are good now will seem
even better in retrospect.
