Sigma Chis
Y Top Sig Eps
In Overtime
Cold Weather, Wind
Hinder Both Teams
By PAUL GREENBERG
A pass from Gerry Davis to Bill
Ammerman on the third down of
an overtime period gave Sigma
Chi a 6-0 victory over Sigma Phi
Epsilon in their semi-final game
played yesterday afternoon at
Ferry Field.
The pass, together with a run by
Davis, gave the Sigma Chis a
larger yardage total in the over-
time than the Sig Eps were able
to muster, and allowed them to
move into the finals.

SIGMA CHI will face the win-
ners of the other semi-final game
between Alpha Tau Omega and
Phi Gamma Delta that is sched-
uled this afternoon at Ferry Field.
The game itself was marred
by several cross wind, frigid
weather, and an extremely slip-
pery playing area. Added to
this was the fact that the very
weather conditions which forced
several postponements of the
game had kept both teams from
having any extensive practice
y sessions.
Obviously the afore-mentioned
factors had a great effect on the
game for neither team was able
to generate an offense of any real
nature during the progress of the
regular contest.
HOWEVER EACH time the Sig-
ma Chis showed indications of
scoring either their attack bogged
down or they were balked by inter-
ceptions and penalties. Taddy
Haas and Bib Ohlheiser showed
well on pass defense for the Sig
Eps, intercepting a total of three
passes.
The Sig Ep offense wa inef-
fective for the most part. The
passing of tailback Claude
Crawford was quite a bit off and
the running of ace Wolverine
trackster Joe La Rue was ham-
pered considerably by the slip-
pery gridiron.
For the main part it was the
defensive back field and the ster-
ling line play and punting of Curt
Murton that kept the Sig Eps up
close throughout the contest.
* * *
THE OTHER football on the
intra-mural schedules was the
professional fraternity second,
third and fourth place playoffs.
In the third place contests Nu
Sigma Nu "A" shut out Phi Delta
Phi 20-0, Alpha Chi Sigma edged
Phi Chi 13-7 and Phi Rho Sigma
triumphed by forfeit over Tau Ep-
silon Rho. The Law Club B team
forfeited to Phi Delta Epsilon in
the fourth place playoffs.

ROSE BOWL CONSCIOUS:
me-up Unconquered Illini Clash with OSU;
Badgers Take on Hawke yes at Home

Perry Set for Wildcats;
Green Doubtful Starter
The return of Frank Howell to the Michigan backfield may well
provide the Wolverines with the needed spark to bounce back and fin-
ish the season with two winning efforts against Northwestern and
Ohio State.
Howell is expected to see action against the Wildcats Saturday
afternoon after being sidelined with a cracked ankle bone for six
weeks. The right halfback, who has not played since the Stanford
game on October 7, was the regular wingback in Michigan's first two
games.
HOWELL'S RUNNING featured the rushing attack of the var-
sity in yesterday's scrimmage with the reserves on Ferry Field. The
practice session yesterday was split quite equally between offensive
and defensive drills.
Linebacker Roger Zatkoff, who is suffering from a leg injury,
did not engage in any contact work yesterday.
Lowell Perry, who was used sparingly against Cornell because of
an ankle injury, took part in the total drills as did Don Peterson and
Captain Bill Putich, both of whom had previously been bothered by
bad legs.

The formerly murky Big Ten;
itle and Rose Bowl picture is be-
inning to clear up, with unde-
eated Illinois the top prospect as,
;he Fighting Illini take on Ohio
tate at Columbus this Saturday.
The Illini sport a conference
ecord of four victories, having
aken the measure of Wisconsin,
ndiana, Michigan, and Iowa. The
Buckeyes were not as successful
n conference play, having con-
uered Iowa and Northwestern,
but they tied Wisconsin and lost
o Indiana.
BOASTING A splendid passing
attack behind the passing of soph-
more quarterback Tommy O'Con-
nell and a crunching ground game
ed by Johnny Karras, the Illini
also showed last week for the sev-
enth time in a row, that defensive-
y they were tops as they con-
tained the plunges of Iowa's hard
driving fullback, Bill Reichardt.
On the other hand, Ohio State,
which now is in fifth place in
the conference on the strength
of two wins, a defeat, and a tie,
has perhaps the best material
in the Big Ten despite this un-
impressive record.
After last week's narrow squeak
with Pittsburgh, when the sup-
posedly pathetic Panthers arose
and slammed the Buckeyes all
over the field, walking off with
everything except victory, Ohio
State may be in no gentle mood
for Illinois.

OSU'S TROUBLE has seemed to
stem from the fact the Bucks have t
shown a sparkling aerial attack
and pulverizing running attack-
on alternate weeks.
If the Buckeyes can ever put
the two together, their opponent
that Saturday will have a rug.
geti time.
Wisconsin, now in third place,
is liable to keep its faint title
hopes alive when they entertain
Iowa at Madison this week.
WISCONSIN IS behind Illinois'
and Michigan, and it would take
at least an Ohio State beating
and Northwestern tying of the
Illini to send the Badgers to the
Rose Bowl.
The Badgers are voted the
top defensive without the serv-
ices of Art Prchlik, tackle, and
the two first string fullbacks.
Alan Ameche and Jim Ham-
mond, who were injured last
week, should still prove too
strong for an Iowa squad which
has served as a doormat for four
previous Big Ten foes.
After last week's 41-13 loss to
Illinois, a general reshuffling has
been taking place in Iowa City,
with freshmen quarterback Bill
Wright, fullback D o n Inman,
tackle Phil Hayman, and Guard
Tom Fleckenstein all moving up
to the varsity.

this Saturday.
The Boilermakers have slipped
quietly along from Saturday to
Saturday, steadily improving
with each game. Against North-
western they suddenly exploded,
smashing the Wildcats for the
third Saturday in a row, 35-14.
The big man in this Purdue up-
set was their little quarterback

eralship toppled the tottering

his team looked impressive for one
half, rolling up an apparently safe
lead in each case. Each time the

pled late in the game, giving the
Hawkeyes three touchdowns in the
fourth quarter and Indiana two in
the last half.

FOOTBALL SPECIALISTS:
McDonald Sons Gain Fame on Gridiron

1

By PAUL BACHMANN
The family of McDonald has
gained football renown on the
basis of its three sons : Andy, a
two-year varsity competitor at
Central Michigan College; Dun-
can, Michigan's freshman quarter-
back; and Ian, a 13-year-old po-
tential prep school star.
Michigan football fans have al-
ready recognized Duncan as a fu-
ture key player. Last Saturday the
fans were given a reasonable op-
portunity to comment on his pass-
ing techniques. The first-year man
from Flint completed three passes
out of nine attempts in the Michi-
gan-Cornell contest. This perfor-
mance sets his individual season
record at five completions in ele-
ven tries, good for 90 yards and
one touchdown.
* * *
COACH Bennie Oosterbaan's
formula for the freshman is ex-
perience in 1951 and a possible
first-string post in 1952. It seems,
judging from Dunc's keen pass-
ing ability in his rare appearances,
that he would be able to fill the
bill this year as well. However,!
Oosterbaan feels that if he were
given a chance on the top rung
this year, any pressure imposed on
a possible bad performance could
set him back on his heels.
As for Dunc himself, he is sat-
isfied with the arrangement, de-
spite the fact that two of his
high school teammates, Leroy
Bolden and Ellis Ducket, are

but is following in his brothers'
footsteps. His passing arm carries
the traditional McDonald power.
In the future the public may find
the name in the limelight for the
third time.

Tack of Week'
NEW YORK-(P)-Maryland's
"Mighty Mo," Ed Modzelewski,
took the play from football's pass-
ing fraternity yesterday and be-
came "Back of the Week" in the
Associated Press' weekly poll.
The honor this season has been
dominated by whip-armed pass-
ers, who piled up astronomical
yardage through the air.
* * *
BUT MODZELEWSKI resorted
to old-fashioned ground-gaining
of the bullish type to win the fa-
vor this week of sports writers and
broadcasters participating in the
ballot.
T h e 210 - pound fullback
gained 127 of the 138 rushing
yards accumulated by Maryland
in its 40-21 victory over Navy.
He plunged over for two of the
touchdowns.
The Maryland workhorse barely
beat out Stanford's Bob Mathias,
of Olympic decathlon fame, who
ran 96 yards to a touchdown in
the Indians' upset triumph over
Southern California.
Other backfield men getting
mention included Dick. Panin,
Michigan State fullback, who ran
88 yards to a touchdown on Mich-
igan State's first play from scrim-
mage in the 35-0 rout of Notre
Dame.

To Meet NUf
In JVFinal
'M' Will Emphasize
Forward Passin
By DICK SEWELL
Like their "big brothers" on the
varsity, Michigan's JV footballers
have played hot and cold all sea-
son.
Their 2-2 record fails to show
the real potential of the squad.
In winning against Michigan State'
and Marquette reserve teams the'
Wolverines showed a tight defense
and a steady offense, but in losing
to the same Spartan squad and
Miami University the Blue "can-
non fodder" suffered costly lapses
both offensively and defensively.
COACH DON ROBINSON hopes
that his charges will be up for
Northwestern in the final JV game
of the season tomorrow afternoon.
The two contests with MSC
point up Michigan's inconsistent
performance.
In the first game, played at East
Lansing, the Wolverine defensej
loosened three times, letting State
backs slip away for 90, 35 and 10
yard touchdown gallops.
Playing the second contest in
the familiar confines of Ferry
Field, the Jayvees looked like a
different ball club.
THE DEFENSE, led by Cap-
tain Ron Williams, a guard, tackle
Bob Milligan and end John Ves-
elenak, held the Spartans to a
single score and outcharged the
visitors' forward wall all after-
noon.
The forward pass has been Mich-
igan's biggest offensive weapon all
fall. The passing of quarterback
Mark Scarr, halfbacks Don Evans
and Bob Hurley and fullback Dick
Balzhiser, and the receiving of
ends Veselenak and Topp and back
Ed Hickey have been directly or
indirectly responsible for six of
the Wolverines' eight tallies.
