A sturdy defense has been the
Michigan key to football success
in. the last three years.
For that reason Bennie Ooster-
baan has shifted emphasis away
from offense during this last week

HE PROBABLY ponders with
nostalgia the rock-ribbed units
which doled out only 53 points to
opposing elevens in 1947 and 44
in 1948.
Last year the enemy got to
Michigan for 85 markers, caus-
ing the Wolverines to slip back
into a tie for the Western Con-
ference crown. Oosterbaan hopes
the trend will not continue.

simulated some of the plays which
the Spartans may employ this
weekend. The defensive unit will
expect State's backs to run from

Freshman football has swung
into high gear with 125 enthusias-
tic candidates working out daily
at Ferry Field.
Under the capable tutelage of
Michigan's versatile coach, Wally
Weber, future Wolverine gridmen
are busily engaged in mastering
the fundamentals of Michigan
style football.
SINCE THE squad has had only
two practice sessions, Weber is re-
Iuctant to single out any promis-
ing material at this early date.
The chief mentor has indi-
cated the expected results of
this year's team, however, by cit-
ing that "the bulk of the squad
alone should produce some good

Flankmen Harry Allis and Oz-
zie Clark may be called upon to
work both offense and defense
along with Captain Al Wahl at
guard. Leo Koceski is expected
to serve on pass defense in the
Michigan secondary as well as
to carry his usual offensive bur-
den at right half.
Ftom an offensive point of view,
the probable starting lineups for
Saturday will include Allis and
Clark at the ends, John Hess and
Wahl beside them at tackle, Al
Jackson and Tom Kelsey in the
guard slots and John Padjen at
the pivot.

to have earned the nod from Oos-

have Chuck Ortmann and Ko-

played 13 minutes last fall, at
Tony Momsen and Roger Zat-

ST. LOUIS -- The Cincinnati

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK-Joe Louis and Ez-
zard Charles, their hard training
finished, exercised only lightly at
their camps yesterday and were
reported ready and rearing for to-
night's heavyweight title fight at
Yankee Stadium.
The ticket sale did not spurt
and the promoters were resigned
to a gross gate of under $200,000.
This would be, roughly, $62,000
less than was paid to see Willie
Pep lose his featherweight toga
to Sandy Saddler three weeks ag6.
* * *
IT IS NOT that the name of
Joe Louis has lost its magnetic
quality. The great fighter who
held his title for nearly 12 years
before he retired 18 months ago
still is the greatest individual at-
traction in any branch of sports.
But the word has been spread
by every medium available that
Joe and Eazard will fight be-
fore the television cameras and
it has had a distressing effect
upon the box office.
Louis' effort to become the first
heavyweight in history to regain
the big title will be screened in
the homes and taverns of 32 prin-
cipal cities. One estimate, per-
haps not too far off, is that an
audience of 20 million will watch
the two men.
* * *
AS FOR THE result of tomor-
row night's 15-rounder, the guess-
ing still is wide open. A majority
of the assembled newspaper ex-
perts favor the 36-year-old Louis
to win back his title, to starch
Charles, the N.B.A. recognized

champion, "the first time he hits
him good."
But more than a few pick
Charles-not only writers, but
managers of fighters and others
who have had to be more than
a little alert to make their liv-
ing from the devious game.
The odds remained a steady 2-
to-1 against Charles in man-to-
man betting-what little there
was. It was said that 5 to 1 could
be obtained against Charles'
chances of winning by a knockout.
EZZARD, HIMSELF, gave out a
fiery statement in which he de-
clared that the odds were ridicu-
lous and that "I expect to score a

tennis team should report to

day. Freshman aspirants

technical knockout no later than
the 12th round. Joe can be chop-
ped up like any other old guy."
Louis, who looked somewhat
terrific in his final three work-
outs, reiterated that he expects
to stop the Cincinnati fighter,
just as he chilled 22 of the 25
men who challenged him while
he held the title.
There is not much doubt in any-
one's mind that Joe can turn the
lights out for Ez if he catches him
good-and early. The early part
is important. The longer it goes,
the better Charles' chances of
