Future 'M' Foes Show
PotentScoring Attacks

Wolverines Get Set for Iowa Battle


(EDITOR'S NOTE: At the beginning
of each week during the football
season The Daily Sports Staff will
furnlrjit a review spotlighting the
doings of Michigan's future 1951
grid foes on the previous Saturday.)
Iowa gave warning Saturday
that the Michigan pass defense
had better be sharp when the two
squads tangle at Iowa City this
weekend, or the Wolverines may
follow Pittsburgh to defeat at the
arms of the Hawkeyes.
Already known to possess a run-
ning threat in sensational sopho-
more halfback George Rice, the
Iowa crew unleashed an aerial at-
tack by quarterback Burt Britz-
iman that accounted for 203 yards
and a 34-17 triumph over the
thrice-beaten Pitt eleven.
ALTOGETHER Iowa went to
the air 27 times, completing 14
passes for 248 yards. Individually,
Britzman connected on 12 of his
heaves to tie his team's record for
the most completions in a single
On the ground the Hawkeyes
were almost as potent, as Rice
and his backfield mates Loran-
zie Willianis and Bill Reichardt
rushed for 217 yards.
Against this same Panther out-
fit, Indiana, conquered by Michi-
gan 33-14, rolled up 349 yards net
offensive gain, but Lou D'Achille,
the talented Hoosier thrower, at-
tempted only four aerials.
Indiana eked out a 13-6 decision
over Pitt.

CORNELL served further notice
that it could be rough on the
Wolverines when the teams meet
early in November. The Big Red
blasted Harvard, 42-6, last week-
end for its third straight win by a
lopsided score.
Ohio State, apparently suf-
fering a hangover from that 24-
20 defeat by Michigan State,
rallied from behind to tie Wis-
consin, 6-6. Of particular signi-
ficance are the OSU statistics
Wisconsin stopped Ohio's Vic
Janowicz, and in the process held
the Buckeyes to 61 yards rushing
and 45 passing. The Badgers by
contrast gained 174 yards rushing
and 172 passing.
* *K *
Stevens gained 175 yards between
them as Illinois pulverized Syra-
cuse, 41-20. Illini quarterback
Don Engels also had a commend-
able afternoon, completing nine
of 12 passes for 180 yards.
Illinois, unstoppable in three
starts this season, meets Michi-
gan November 3 in the tilt which
should go a long way in deter-
mining Maize and Blue Con-
ference potential.
Northwestern downed Minne-
sota, 21-7, at Minneapolis to grab
its third straight victory this year.
The Wildcats had rushing and
passing totals of 289 and 130
yards, respectively.

Coach Ben Oosterbaan and his
band of rejuvenated gridders ig-
nored all talk of another Western
Conference championship yester-
day, and began preparation for
the task at hand, namely Satur-
day's clash with Iowa.
Reluctant to give much weight
to the Wolverines' 33-14 win over
Indiana, Oosterbaan pointed out
Men interested in competing
in the All-Campus Cross Coun-
try meet October 30 must sign
up at the IM Building as soon
as possible. Five separate prac-
tice sessions must be held be-
fore Oct. 30, the date of the
--Dave Edwards
that the Hawkeyes will field one
of the strongest squads in recent
years against Michigan this week-
* * *
IOWA'S EARLY performances
seem to back up this observation.
The Hawkeyes boast lopsided vic-
tories over Kansas State and
Pittsburgh against a narrow de-
feat to Purdue.
Despite his caution, Ooster-
baan was noticeably pleased
with his charges' performance
against the Hoosiers. He had a
right to be.

the Southern Methodist passer
who bombed Notre Dame, is run-;
ning behind schedule.
Flingin' Freddie, a tall young'
man with a crew haircut, was
completing a pass a minute until
this season.,
It might be difficult to convince
Notre Dame that he has slumped
for he connected on 21 of 42
throws for 326 yards against the
Irish Saturday when SMU won
the big intersectional game 27-20.
But while he has fallen behind
his pace for his first two varsity
years at SMU, Benners still is hot
on the trail of the greatest pass-
ing record in the Southwest-that
hung up by Sammy Baugh at
Texas Christian in the mid-thir-
Baugh, who became the star of
the Washington Redskins, coi-
pleted 274 passes in 599 attempts
for 3479 yards in three seasons.
Benners, after two seasons and
four games of a third, has thrown
374 passes and connected on 210
for 2,739 yards. He has six games
to get 64 completions and 740
yards in order to equal Baugh's
mark. He already has beaten all
Southwestern marks except those
set by Baugh and Davey O'Brien,
also of Texas Christian, who com-
pleted 227 passes for 2932 yards in
This season Fred has completed
54 passes in 97 tries for 672 yards.
But he has played 65 minutes. Last
year he completed 109 passes in
108 minutes of play. In 1949 it was
47 in 55 minutes.

the Maize and Blue had piled up
a big 26 point lead.
Offensively Michigan unveiled
a sparkling attack which com-
pletely befuddled a flat Indiana
eleven. Veterans and freshmen
combined to pile up 124 yards
rushing and 197 passing.
Perhaps the most encouraging
feature of Saturday's game was
Michigan's ability to score once
they got within the opponent's 20-
yard line, where the yards get

SENIOR fullback Don Peterson
,was the running star of the game,
grinding out 70 yards on 16 tries.
This effort gave him a rushing
average of 3.9 yards per try, topped
only by end Lowell Perry with an
average of 4.3 yards on seven car-
Perry's incredible pass catch-
ing ability was a major factor in
the Wolverines' triumph. Time
and time again he made great
catches, as he scored once and
set up at least two other touch-
downs. Perry's five catches
were good for 124 yards.
Yesterday's practice called for
brief limbering up exercises for
the first team, and a short scrim-
mage between the reserves. Last
night the Wolverines viewed
movies of Saturday's game and
went over scouting reports on

Almost everything the Wolver-
ines did, they did well. The pass
defense which was so woefully
lacking in the Michigan State and
Stanford contests covered Hoosier
receivers like a tent, limiting the
invaders to a meager 66 yards
through the air.
THE DEFENSIVE line, sparked
by big Tom Johnson, stopped cold
all Indiana scoring attempts until

Hayden House scored a decisive
victory over Tyler House yester-
day in I-M play, as they won go-

the second play of the game when
Don Kiefer caught Doug Tech's
aerial and raced into the end
zone. Kiefer tallied again later in
the game and Tech matched this
with two TD's of his own.
Bill Rahn led his Chicago
House teammates in a 13-0 shut-
out of Michigan House. Rahn
passed for both touchdowns and
ran for the extra point.
In a third shutout, Fred Adams
of Adams House set up one touch-
down on a pass interception and

ball team today in the third week-
ly nation-wide poll of the Asso-
ciated Press. Michigan State, the
top team for the first two weeks,.
skidded to third place, as Tennes-
see moved into the No. 2 spot.
Coach Pappy Waldorf's Bears,
winner of four straight games aft-
er defeating Washington State
last week, 42-35, received 50 first
place votes out of a total of 138
ballots sent in by sports writers
and sportscasters.
California had indicated a week
ago it was gaining respect and
voting strength, when the Bears
were only 10 points back of Michi-
gan State in the second poll.
Tennessee, which picked on un-
dermanned Chattanooga to the
tune of 42-13 last week, received
26 first place votes and 977 points.
In a pre-season poll, Tennessee
had been tabbed as the probable
No. 1 team of the land.
Otherwise, there was consider-
able scrambling of positions, with
two newcomers moving ino the
select top 10 teams - Princeton
and Baylor, nine and ten, respec-

Discus Champion of Sweden.
AmongForeign Athletes Here

The 1951-52 version of the Wol-
verine track and field ensemble
has been greatly strengthened by
the addition of a new crop of stel-
lar foreign athletes.
Foremost among these new
sophomore faces on the squad is
six-foot, six inch Roland Nilsson,
Swedish National shot-put and
discus champion. As a freshman,
Nilsson bettered the records set by
the former Michigan great, Char-
ley Fonivlle, in his freshman year.
* * *
TWO Canadian newcomers in-
cluded with the ten northerners
on the team are miler John Ross,
and quarter-miler Jack Carroll.
Ross, a high school team-mate of
Don McEwen, won the Open In-
vitational Mile at the Drake Re-
lays last year, in the time of 4:20.

Carroll scored in the K. of C. 600'
at Cleveland last spring.
Other standouts of last year's
freshman unit include Pat Mon-
tagano, Elkhart, Indiana pole
vaulter. Montagana cleared 12
feet 6 inches to become Indiana
State High School champion.

Fresh out of Bivalve, N. J., he arrived on the campus all
bug-eyed and his big mouth hanging open. He was
immediately sucked into a "shell game" and found
himself making all the quick-trick cigarette tests.
But his native instinct told him that such an
important item as cigarette mildness couldn't
be tossed off lightly. Millions of smokers
evIrywhere have discovered, too, that there's but
one true test of mildness.
It's the sensible test ...the 30-Day Camel
Mildness Test, which simply asks you to try Camels
as your steady smoke... on a pack-after-pack
basis. No snap judgments! Once you've tried
Camels for 30 days in your "T-Zone" (T for
Throat, T for Taste), you'll see why...
