Catch Return
HE WENT ON to point out that
the fair catch was abolished be-
cause it wasn't used very much.
But he compares it to the emer-

but it is still there for safety mea-
The way things now stand
with the fair catch rule not on
the books, many grid teams are

yards behind the line of scrim-
From this distant point, there is
little necessity of providing tight
blocking for him. Consequently,
every member of the kicking team,
excepting the punter, is free to go
downfield to make the tackle on
the receiver.

Quaker GuardI
Named Week's
Top Lineman
NEW YORK-Q)-For his out-
standing role in crushing Wiscon-
sin's attack on Saturday at Phila-
delphia, Bernie Lemonick, 200-
pound defensive left guard of the
Penn Quakers, has been chosen as
the Associated Press' lineman of
the week.
In nominating Tony Momsen
as the week's top "lineman," Hal
Middlesworth of the Detroit Free
Press brought up a fine point.
Momsen is a line-backer. Sooner
or later somebody will have to
decide whether these modern
workhorses are backs or linemen.
Anyhow, Middlesworth says:
"Momsen, who blocked the
Northwestern punt which m'arked
the turning point of Michigan's 34
to 23 victory, has had a great, un-
der-publicised season."

If the statistics released last
night for the Western Conference
football season mean anything,
Saturday's Michigan-Ohio State
contest is anybody's ball game.
Except for the point-scoring de-
partment, where the Buckeyes
have a formidable edge, the two
teams are as near even as modern
football allows a couple of tradi-
tional rivals to be.
* * *
MICHIGAN ranks second in the
conference in defense (Illinois is
tops in that department) with a
yardage gained average of 229.8
for its five opponents in the con-
ference race so far. Ohio State is
third with a 235.5 defensive aver-
On offense, the Buckeyes have
rolled to the best average total
yardage in the conference, with
the help of the Minnesota and
Iowa catastrophes. They've aver-
aged 355.2 yards on the ground
and by the aerial route.
The Wolverines have averaged
228.3 yards per game, with that
total lessened by the ice-skating
exhibition against Illinois. Thus,
they rank third in that division.
On paper, at least, Michigan
seems to come up to the Buckeye
game with enough power and tena-
city to give the massive line of the
men from Columbus a good run
for their money.
They'll also come up againstone
of the few real triple-threat men
left in Big Ten football in this
age of specialization. He's Vic Jan-'
owicz, whose gridiron abilities have
been haled as the most complete
in the country.

JANOWICZ leads the Western

scoring and ranks fourth in pass-
ing and punting. He has thrown
seven touchdown passes for an-
other leading mark.
So Michigan's Bennie Ooster-
baan, whose on-and-off football
team has been improving on of-
fense through the latter part of
the season, has been working his
charges on the Janowicz plays
the Wolverines will see heading
their way this weekend.
As if he didn't do enough else,
the Buckeye whiz has kicked 21:
points after touchdown.
In yesterday's drill the Wolver-
ine coaching staff stressed defense
