Associate Sports Editor
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan and
his fired-up Wolverine football
machine take on a giant-killer's
role this afternoon when they do
battle with a power-laden Michi-
gan State eleven in the 45th re-
newal of their long-standing grid-
iron feud.
Kickoff time is set for 2 p.m. A
capacity throng of 97,239 is ex-
pected to cram its way into Mich-
igan Stadium to witness the 19521
curtain opener.
tans come to town with trunks
full of press notices, a 15-game
win streak, and number one na-
tional billing.
On top of it all, Michigan
State boasts two straight tri-
umphs over the Maize and Blue
gridiron warriors-a 14-7 win in
1950 and an easy 25-0 victory a
year ago.
However, there is little likeli-
hood that Oosterbaan and Co. will
be impressed by anything short
of the final score. Fielding a squad
basicly stronger than in the past
two years, Michigan is out to pre-
vent a recurrence of previous dis-

BEARING the brunt of Wolver-
ine hopes will be the offensive
backfield of Ted Kress at left half,
Frank Howell at right half, Fred
Baer at fullback and Ted Topor
at quarterback. Kress and Baer
were both called from last year's
junior varsity squad to fill the
Bobo LE Perry
Serr LT Stro ewski
Kush LG Timm
Tamburo C O'Shaughnessy
Breniff RG Belson
Klein RT Stribe
Dekker RE Stanford
Yewcie QB Topor
McAuliffe LHB Kress
Pisano RHB Howell
Panin F B Baer
posts vacated by Bill Putich and
Don Peterson. Although untried
in big game competition, both have
shown well in early season practice
Topor, yho has shaved several
pounds from his 6-1 frame, and
the shifty Howell are both vet-
erans of Big Ten football wars
and provide a steadying influ-
ence in the starting backfield.

Michigan's offensive forward
wall will be capably manned by
seven lettermen.
STARTING at end will be All-
American candidate Lowell Perry
and Thad Stanford, a 6-2 juniorj
from Midland, Michigan. Tackle1
berths will probably go to Dick
Strozewski and Ralph Stribe, both
weighing in at 205.
The guard positions are filled
by senior Bob Timm, and Dick
Beison, a 200-pound junior from
East Chicago. Veteran Dick
O'Shaughnessy, an off-season
wrestler, will put the ball into
play from his center post.
The Spartan's attacking squad
finds but two or three of the elev-
en who answered the referee's
whistle last year. Only halfbacks
Vince Pisano and Captain Don
McAuliffe are sure to start again.
Last year's fullback, Wayne Ben-
son is likely to be replaced by eith-
er Dick Panin or Evan Slonac.
Both are lettermen.

THE UNENVIABLE task of fill-
ing the shoes of the graduated Al
Dorow goes to his understudy,
sophomore Tom Yewcic, who saw
little action last season except as
the team's punter.

An entirely new offensive line
will face the Maize and Blue.
The ends spots will probably
be manned by seniors Doug Bobo
and Paul Dekker. Tackles will
be Gordon Serr (205) and Joe
Klein (210). Guard posts go to
junior Bob Breniff and senior
In a last minute move, the
National Collegiate Athletic As-
sociation gave the go-ahead on
televising the Michigan-Michi-
gan State game today.
According to Les Etter, the
Michigan Athletic Publicity
Director, the game will go on
WWJ-TV, channel 4 at 2 p.m.
barring mechanical difficulties.
The NCAA approval came be-
cause of the great interest in
the game and because it was a
complete sell-out.
Frank Kush. Either Dick Tam-
buro or Jim Neil will fill the
pivot slot.
Defensively, both teams appear
unusually strong.
Guards Timm and Beison, and
Perry, who will handle the safety
chores, will probably be called
upon to do double duty.

CAPTAIN Tim Green and Mey-
er Morton trophy winner Gene
Knutson give Michigan one of
the nation's strongest defensive
end combinations.
Art Walker, a sophomore from
South Haven, and Jim Balog,
a 210-pounder from Wheaton,
Ill. will get the call at tackle.
Ready to back up Beison and
Timm at guard are sturdy de-
fenders Don Dugger and Bob
Linebacking duties fall to the
capable hands of vets Roger Zat-
koff and Laurie LeClaire.
Dave Tinkham, a senior letter-
winner from East Grand Rapids,
is certain to start at one of the
defensive halfback posts. Ooster-
baan has tried Don Oldham, Tom
Witherspoon and Howell in the
other backfield berth in practice
sessions, and may try all today.
State's defensive unit is com-
posed mainly of seasoned veter-
ans. Ends Don Dohoney and Ed
Luke; tackles Jack Morgan and
Larry Fowler; guard Don Schiess-
wohl; linebackers Doug Weaver,
Tamburo, Ed Timmerman and
Leo Boyd; halfbacks Rex Corless,
Ray Vogt, Johnny Wilson; and
safetyman Jim Ellis all saw con-
siderable action last season.

and graduate training on a large
meeting also sent the new North
Campus a little further along iri
its development in an approval of
architects to study new building
needs of the School of Music.
Saarinen and Associates, ar-
chitects and consultants to the
University on the development
of the new campus, will work
with music school Dean Earl V.
Moore and possibly construct a
model for a music building in
the planned Fine Arts Center.
The Regents yesterday accepted
a total of $186,687.96 in grants
and gifts, including the dental
fund. Two other grants from the
Kellogg Foundation, one of $19,-
339.73 for the Kellogg General

Open House
Sen. Blair Moody, Democratic
candidate for re-election at the
Nov. 4 election, will be in Ann

at party headquarters at 103
S. Fourth Ave.
The Senator is slated to an-
swer questions and greet local
residents between 11 a.m. and
noon. All members of the com-

are invited to attend the in-

Pravda Hitfs
US Diplomat
MOSCOW (A)-A blistering at-
tack by Pravda yesterday raised
a question as to the future status
of Ambassador George Kennan as
the American envoy to Russia.
Pravda, organ of the Commu-
nist party and the highest journal-
istic authority in the Soviet Union,
charged Kennan with conduct im-
proper to an ambassador and said
he was a "slanderer disguised as
a diplomat."
The assault on the 48-year-old
expert on Russian affairs, who
took up his past here less than
five months ago, was the result of
an interview he gave reporters at
Berlin Sept. 19 while en route to
a London meeting of U.S. diplo-
matic chiefs. He was quoted as
saying that Soviet-American rela-
tions had sunk to an "icy cold"
level, and compared the situation
of American diplomats in Moscow
now with that of interned U.S.
Americans in Berlin in 1941-42
during the war.

Ike Unhurt
As Wooden
Ramp Falls
By The Associated Press
Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower nar-
rowly escaped injury last night
when a ramp leading to the ros-
trum from which he had just fin-
ished delivering a major campaign
address collapsed under the weight
of hundreds of his admirers.
Flushed with the thunderous re-
ception he had been given by the
big crowd assembled around the
south portico of the state capitol
building, Eisenhower was leaving
the rostrum on the capitol steps
and was only six feet from the
end of the wooden ramp when it
sagged in the middle and fell.
SEN. WILLIAM F. Knowland of
California grabbed the arm of
the Republican presidential can-
didate, as did others in his escort.
Eisenhower fell to his knees but
got up quickly and told the crowd
with a smile, "I'm not hurt.",
The reception for the GOP
presidential nominee dwarfed
the welcome given here only a
week ago to Democratic presi-
dential nominee Adlai Steven-
Meanwhile in Indianapolis, Ste-
venson, defending the fund he set
up to augment Illinois state offi-
cials' pay declared yesterday "if
it's a crime to help good people in
government, then I'm guilty."
Stevenson also laid down to the
largest indoor crowd of his cam-
paign to date a cheering overflow
audience in the 12,000 seat coli-
seum at the Indiana state fair-

Adds Color
To Program
In an impressive and colorful
ceremony the newly opened An-
gell Hall addition was officially
dedicated yesterday afternoon.

importance of general education
as he made his first major public
address since his appointment on
Sept. 1, to climax the program.
Rep. Joseph Warner, chair-
man of the State House Ways
and Means Committee, officially
presented the streamlined An-
gell Hall wing to the University.
Rep. Warner was a members of
the appropriations committee 30

"academically hallowed ground"
Regent Herbert said that the cere-

sion paused at the south entrance
of Angell Hall Auditorium where
Senior class President Roger Wil-
kens, '53 unveiled the bronze
plaque of former University Pres-
ident James Angell. President Har-
lan H. Hatcher explained that the
plaque was cast from a bas relief
made in 1929 by Carleton Angell,
University museum artist-no re-
lation to the former president.
Before being permanently
placed inside the entrance to
the new auditoriums, the plaque
was located in the library of
former President Alexander
Ruthven's home.
"In our time especially," Deen
Odegaard said in his address,
"when individual citizens in our
democracy are called upon to par-
ticipate in many decisions of mo-
mentous import, the general wis-
dom which the literery college
seeks to develop in its students is
a needed complement to the in-

Town Prepares for Football Invasion

Thousands of hopeful Univer-
sity students opened the 1952 foot-
ball season last night with high
spirits, cheering, parading and
just plain confusion as they gird-

Though the season formally
starts with today's kickoff, the

Transportation lines were work-
