THE REVOLVING DOOR HALTS:
Cornell's Grid Hopes Rest with Whelan

By DICK LEWIS
A winner in any sport is likely
to stand pat.
Cornell grid coach Lefty James
had to go to the post six times be-
fore he could produce a winner,
and consequently the Big Red
football machine has resembled
the eternally-moving revolving
door in a metropolitan depart-
ment store.
Scores of aspiring athletes,
some green and others experi-
enced veterans, have trotted on
and off the field in an attempt "to
giv their all" for old Cayuga.
FOR FIVE games this season
they failed. Cornell football
reached its lowest ebb in those
fateful five, as the New Yorkers
could manage only three touch-
downs in 300 minutes of compe-
tition.
Last week in New York City,
one player who hadn't played in
the five setbacks made his ini-
tial grid appearance of the 1952
campaign. As usual, Cornell
was the underdog. This time the
spread was 12 points in favor
of a pass-crazy Columbia elev-
en.
But with Captain Bill Whelan,
a veteran of last year's 20-7 upset
over Michigan, back in the line-
up, the Big Red rose up for three
touchdowns (as many as it scored
all season) in the last 13 minutes
of a 21-14 triumph. New York
sports writers agreed that the
Cornell inspirational leader had
made the difference.
* * *
BEFORE the season, Whelan
was regarded a cinch for all-
Eastern honors. As an effective
running halfback and defensive
safety,, he was expected to pick
up the brunt of the Cornell at-
tack which was shattered when 25
lettermen graduated.
The 173-pound senior from

Lynn, Mass., rushed 47 times
for 133 yards in 1951, and com-
pleted 3 of 3 passes for 64 yards.
As versatile as they come, Whel-
an also punted 7 times for 2044
yards (a 35.9 average) and re-
turned a kickoff 24 yards. He hit
paydirt twice.
With grid laurels imminent, old
man injury struck the Ithaca
campus. Whelan sustained a
broken collarbone in a preseason
scrimmage.
The medicos said that he would
be out for the season. Coach Lou
All men interested in playing
on an independent rugby team
are invited to attend a meet-
ing at 7:30 next Wednesday
night, November 12, at the In-
ternational Center. A game
with Oberlin may be scheduled.
--James Ferguson
Little and his Lion gridders knew
otherwise when Whelan was back
in uniform last Saturday.
HE GAVE a much-needed lift
to the punchless Ivy Leaguers. He
also kept Columbia deep in its
own territory during the entire
second half with his accurate
boots. Two Whelan kicks travelled
a full 60 yards.
Cornell's first semblance of an
attack all season plus Whelan's
kicking featured the victory
drive.

Right from the start, Whelan's
presence was again felt in the Big
Red lineup. Early in the first pe-
riod, quarterback Herb Bool loft-
ed a 19-yard pass to the talented
halfback who took it on the run
and danced into the endazone. A
backfield in motion penalty nulli-
fled that score.
BUT WITH Whelan's boots
booming, Columbia couldn't ad-
vance beyond its own 40 until the
last minutes of the second half.
The Lions would have been deeper
in the hole had not three boots by
the Big Red captain rolled into
the end zone after doing a shim-
my inches from the goal line.
In addition to his punting,
Whelan found the range on one
toss in one attempt for 35 yards
He plowed through the Colum-
bia line for 42 yards on 18 tries.
If you drop down to the Mich-
igan dressing room at Yost Field
House, you'll see a life-size por-
trait of Whelan staring you right
in the face.
He's number one on the Wolver-
ine wanted list, and just his pres-
ence in Ann Arbor tomorrow
should add plenty to the Cornell
football awakening.

Wolverine 's
Team Ready
For Cornell
Wolverine gridders appeared to
be in nearly top physical condi-
tion yesterday as Coach Bennie
Oosterbaan sent his squad
through the final heavy workout
for Saturday's intersectional clash
with Cornell.
Both tailback Ted Kress and
Ron Williams, defensive guard,
are fully recovered from sprained
ankles suffered in last week's Il-
linois battle, leaving halfback
Tom Witherspoon, with a similar
injury, as the only doubtful Mich-
igan starter
AFTER TWO DAYS of hard
scrimmaging yesterday's drills re-
verted to the customary no-con-
tact type. The junior-varsity ran
through a series of Cornell plays
as the defensive platoon put the
finishing touches on their plans
to halt the Big Red.
Kicking drills were cut short
by the wintry blast that whis-
tled around Yost Field House,
but Oosterbaan raced the of-
fensive platoons through a spir-
ited running and passing drill
in spite of the bitter cold.
The Wolverines will wind up
their preparations with a short
workout this afternoon.
* * *
CORNELL COACH Lefty James,
whose team left by train last
night for Ann Arbor, called off a
scheduled practice because of the
early departure time. The 41-man
squad will hold a brief drill in
Michigan Stadium this afternoon.
The only casualty reported
among the Big Red is tackle
Don Kennedy, who suffered a
back injury in Cornell's 21-14
upset of Columbia last week.
A crowd of 50,000 is expected
Saturday to see Michigan attempt
to break a six-game losing
streak against non-conference op-
ponents.
ThenWolverines can boast of
only one victory outside the Big
Ten since 1949 season. They
whipped Dartmouth 27-7 in their
second start of the 1950 cam-
paign but since then they have
been dumped by Army, in 1950,
Michigan State, Stanford, and
Cornell last year, and the Spart-
ans and Stanford this season.

Ooooh-la-lal Here's
the naked truth about
Van Heusen's new
Van Chick. Not a
stitch in sight..,
anywhere ... on collar,
cuffs and front. It's
the shirt smart college
men count on for that
streamlined, clean-cut
look the gals go for in
a big way. In white
or colors, broadcloth
or oxford. A new
Van Heusen free if yours
shrinks out of size.
