THE MICHIGAN DAILY
WHEN MICHIGAN takes the field tomorrow against arch-rival
Michigan State, it will initiate the seventy-third consecutive
football campaign for the Wolverine club.
Few, if any, schools in the midwest have competed in inter-
collegiate gridiron activity longer or with more success. Though
the team has experienced its ups and downs through the years,
it has had so many more ups than downs that to a lot of people
the word Michigan is synonymous with winning football.
This in itself has several drawbacks. There seems to be some de-
gree of academic prestiege nowadays connected with, a losing team.
Look at Harvard, Chicago, and the other panty-waist outfits that
proudly parade under a losing banner..
The biggest drawback, however, lies in the endeavor to per-
petuate a winning tradition. It results directly in high pressure
recruiting and a cut-throat attitude towards the sometimes help-
Fortunately Michigan has been able to win more than its share
of games without indulging too vigorously in either type of acti-
vity. There has been some rumor of late that "this is it" for Bennie
Oosterbaan, the Maize and Blue mentor, but such a move seems far
from reality right now.
Bennie and Competency .. .
BENNIE HAS already proven himself to be competent coach by his
three conference crowns in four tries. If his squads fail to produce
consistently, the blame obviously rests on the material. He can't
play himself because of the existing rules, an admittedly unfortunate
Oosterbaan is well liked by his players. Although in a business
where there is a strong tendency to regard the individual as a
piece of machinery and become immune to physical disasters,
the Chief Wolverine has an apparent interest in his players as
Contrast this attitude with that of another coach in a celebrated
institution in northern Indiana. On the first day of practice this
person gathered his lads about him, and, digging a small trench with
his foot, he growled, "Fill it with blood," and marched off to the

Stick with Oosterbaan ...
WIN, LOSE, or draw Michigan can't go wrong with a coach of
Oosterbaan's caliber. If everything doesn't pan out as expected,
the wolves would do well to howl at another door.
The guys on the team got a large charge from a headline
in one of the local papers recently, which ratherly blatantly pro-
claimed, "Balhizer, Zatkoff become fathers; Schlict leaves squad."
Things were kind of jumping for a few days after that incident.
If your copy of the Daily isn't getting through to you, don't be
so rash as to take the matter up with your newsboy, please. You're
liable to regret tangling with tackles Ralph Stribe and Ben Peder-
son, or that sensational 15 pound guard, Bob Matheson. These lads
aren't feeling ultra sweet in the morning after a hard practice the
proceding afternoon, so be careful, mates.
Perry, Zatkoff Return
To Full Effectiveness
Michigan is ready.
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan and
his staff applied the finishing
touches yesterday to the squad
which must face the nation's best
football team tomorrow.
THE OVERALL physical condi-
tion of the Wolverine eleven seems
to be good, with full effectiveness
expected of end Lowell Perry and
linebacker Roger Zatkoff. Both
key performers had been slowed
by pulled leg muscles.
Signal drills were the order
of the day yesterday as the
coaches, fearing last-minute in-
juries, refrained from ordering
a contact session.
Three sets of backfields worked
out the intricacies of the Michigan
single wing attack while the
sharp-eyed staff searched for
flaws in their offensive perform-
THEaFIRST UNIT had Ted
Topor at 'quarterback, Ted Kress
and Frank Howell at halfback
spots and Fred Baer at the full-
back post. A second quartet was
composed of Duncan McDonald,
Don Oldham, Tony Branoff and
Bob Hurley. The third group had
Don ZanFagna, Dan Cline, Tom
Witherspoon and Russ Rescorla.
On the receiving end of the
aerial efforts of Topor, Kress
and McDonald were Perry, Gene
Knutson, Thad Stanford and
Jim Bates. Stanford was oper-
ating at reduced speed due to

camp for the night.
