Alpha Sigs Bow to Pi Lams
In IM First Place Playoffs

Intra-mural football moved into
the final rounds yesterday with a
full schedule of contests despite
adverse weather conditions and
muddy grounds.
In social fraternity playoffs, Pi
Lambda Phi won their first place
playoff game by defeating Alpha
Sigma Phi, 14 to 0.
THE PI LAMS scored on a pass
from Jerry Rovner to Jerry Hirsch
in the first half, and one from
Rovner to Bram Goldman in the
second. Rovner threw to Hirsch
for both extra points. The line
play of Windy Ballis and Dick
Krinsley was outstanding for the
Sigma Alpha Epsilon and Chi
Phi both dvanced in the sec-
ond place fplayoffs. Lyle Lapine
sparked the SAE's to a 12-0
victory over Theta Chi by pass-
ing to Dick Young and Swede
Lauritsen for both scores.
The Chi Phi's won a hard fought
12-6 contest from Delta Upsilon
in overtime. DU scored their only
touchdown on a pass-lateral play
from Steve Pannes to Ed Whipple
to Jim Watkins, while Chi Phi
tallied on an aerial from Hap
Holmes to Herb Spence. The
margin of victory was a scant
four yards in the overtime period.
IN THE THIRD-place playoffs,
Phi Sigma Delta, Kappa Sigma,
Sigma Nu, and Chi Psi all won
their first game. The Phi Sig
rolled by Tau Kappa Epsilon 14-2
in a game filled with screen passes.

Anderson announced yesterday he
will return to the Chicago Bears
of the National Football League
Monday as line coach.
Anderson said he will receive
the same salary he would have
had he been permitted to sign as
head coacht of the Washington
Redskins last week. That report-
edly is $1,500 a week.
In addition, Anderson said, he
will be free at the end of the sea-
son "To make any deal I desire
for my services." President George
C Marshall of the Redskins has
expressed hope he can hire An-
derson for 1951.
The Bears, to whom Anderson
is under contracted, vetoed his
joining the Redskins last week.
The Bears signed Anderson as a
line coach for 1950 and 1951, but
he has remained here this season,
continuing as salesman for a steel
firm. The Bears demanded an
ace tackle from the Redskins in
return for reaching Anderson's
contract but the Skins refused.

screen from Phil Barad to Gene
Mackevich, and Phi Sigs scored
again when Bob Horwitch in-
tercepted a TKE screen and
crossed the goal line without an
opponent touching him.
The TKE's scored a safety late
in the game when Dick Tromley
caught Barad behind the goal
line. Kappa Sig whitewashed Zeta
Psi 13-0 on a run by Don Mitchell
and a pass from Mitchell to Dave
CHUCK KEPLER put on a one-
man show to lead Sigma Nu to a
19-0 victory over Tau Delta Phi.
Kepler scored all three touchdowns
on runs and passed to Doug Kerby
for the extra point.
The Chi Psi's battered Alpha
Epsilon Pi, 27 to 7. Chi Psi scored
the first time they got the ball
and were never overtaken. The
feature of the game was a long
run by Ron Wells. The AEPi's got
their only tally on a pass from
Warren Robbins to Bob Rosen-
man in the first half.
In professional fraternity ball,
Phi Delta Chi defeated Nu Sigma
Nu B team 18 to 0, and Alpha Del-
ta Phi gained a forfeit victory
over Sigma Pi.
In the only game played in the
independent league, Newman Club
defeated the Rumpots, 21-12.

Preparations for halting the re-

were stressed in yesterday's varsity
practice on rain-soaked Ferry
The Gophers, who suddenly ex-
ploded for 521 yards in downing
Nebraska, 39-20, last Saturday
promise to test the Michigan de-
fense which has improved steadily
over the past few weeks. The Wol-
verines expect to be equal to the
task, however, after so ably
squelching Iowa's touchdown
drives last week.

ALTHOUGH the Michigan de-
fensive unit seems to be in top
shape, the right halfback slot on
offense is still undermanned be-
cause of injuries.
Tom Witherspoon, who injured
his knee in scrimmage in prac-
tice Tuesday, was in uniform
yesterday but engaged in no
contact work. X-rays taken yes-
terday indicated that nothing
was broken, but the right half-
back is still bothered by the
Witherspoon may not be able to
play in the Minnesota clash, and
if he does he will undoubtedly see
little action.
IN YESTERDAY'S drills the
varsity concentra'ted on stopping
the reserves, who employed varied
Gopher formations which the Wol-
verines will encounter Saturday.
The reserves met with little suc-
cess, however, as the varsity line
refused to be moved.

paced by left halfback Paul Giel
and fullback Ron Wallin, who
proved to be a hard-plunging

Oosterbaan's Run with Fumble Salvages
Victory in Memorable 1926 Roughhouse

There's a strange magic in the
mythical brew of the Little Brown
Michigan and Minnesota foot-
ball players have taken swigs of
the potent potion 34 times since
1903, and its effects have produced
some of the greatest upsets and
other unforeseen performances in
the history of football.
* * *
BEFORE a Wolverine-Gopher
clash each rival throws season rec-
ords into a cocked helmet and pro-
ceeds to set about winning the
game by any ingenuity that can be
Take the famous 1926 contest,
the second between the schools
that year:
Although Michigan had won the
first tilt handily, Minnesota had
come back strong so that by the
end of the season Fielding Yost
figured his Michigan eleven had
little chance of winning, and the
Maize and Blue needed the vc-
tory for a share of the Conference
THINGS WENT according to'
form in the battle, as Minnesota
made something like 400 yards
rushing, while Michigan had
struggled for 30 or 40. In the final
'minute of the game the Gophers
had a 6-0 lead and the ball on
Michigan's 45 yard line.
It looked like Black Saturday
in Ann Arbor. Then it happened.
Minnesota's halfback fumbled.
Michigan's end, a lad named Ben-
nie Oosterbaan, picked the ball up
in the midst of 22 players. By all
that's holy on the gridiron, Ooster-
baan should have fallen on that
loose ball.
INSTEAD he scooped it up and
ran 55 yards for a touchdown. The
Wolverines kicked the point and
won, 7-6.
Such a howl was never heard
as the one which came from
Gopher fans after that play.
"How can you beat such luck?"
What they didn't know was that
Yost made his luck.
* 4.*
HE DIDN'T let his ends scrim-
mage during the week before the
game instead he had them run up
and 'down the field behind man-
agers who dropped footballs, so
that Oosterbaan by game time was
perfect at scooping up balls with
either hand on the dead run.
Of more recent vintage is the
1649 or "Damn Devine" contest
in Ann Arbor:
Michigan had lost to Army and
weak Northwestern, ending a 25
game winning streak. Tommy De-
vine, a Detroit sportswriter, took
this as a signal the week before the
game to write some uncomplimen-
tary articles telling how poor the
Wolverines were, and how much
poorer they were certain to get.
* * *
MINNESOTA, unbeaten, was
fresh from a 23-0 victory over
powerful Ohio State, and the
Gophers on paper had taken the
Brown Jug.
Incensed at the degrading re-
marks of Devine and other
scribes, loyal Wolverne fans,
coaches and players set their

sights on an upset of the un-
fortunate Gophers.
From the opening kickoff that
Saturday it was evident that
Michigan was the team with the
drive and spirit to set down Min-
nesota. And it did set them down,
to the tune of 14-7.
FOR SOME TIME after the Ski-
U-Mah downfall a large gathering
of Michigan rooters stood under
the Stadium press box where De-
vine held forth, voicing appropri-
ate remarks for his edification.
Minnesota 'also takes these
Brown Jug battles to heart.
Last season the Wolverines rode
into Minneapolis solid 20-point
choices to flatten the victoryless
Gophers, who had just been hum-
bled, 48-0, by OSU/" From some-
where the Northmen picked up the
drive and spirit Michigan had in
1949, and the contest ended in a
7-7 tie.
This weekend in the Stadium
Michigan will probably be a slight
favorite over Minnesota on the
form sheets. But don't give form
too much. The brew of the Little
Brown Jug has a strange way of
washing out past performances.

ticular plan of battle.
"No," he said. "We've given
Louis no particular thought. I'll
just go out to fight him. I
don't know what he'll do. I'll
meet whatever he does."
At the same time in his Pomp-

will have another light drill today.
