coach-E

ing staff: All is not forsaken
when you look at what happened
to Michigan's eight future foes in
Saturday's football action.
While the Maize and Blue was
suffering a two-touchdown set-
back at the hands of powerful
Michigan State, only three of the
remaining teams on the Michigan
schedule could manage victories.
Here's what happened:
STANFORD: A blocked third-
quarter conversion attempt gave
the Indians an upset 14-13 tri-
umph over Washington State.
T Lineman Dick Monteith broke
through the Cougar forward wall
to smother Ed Barker's kick and
preserve the Californians' second
successive win.

INDIANA-OHIO STATE: Buck-
eye mentor Woody Hayes uncov-
ered a new sensation in Howard
(Hopalong) Cassady, a red-haired
freshman who scored three times
in a 33-13 romp over the Hoosiers.
There will be an important
meeting of all freshman swim-I

at the I-M pool.
I --Matt Mann

Cassady hit paydirt with a 27-
yard Fred Bruney aerial, and
plunges of six and three yards.
The outweighed Indiana eleven
held the winners to a 13-13 dead-
lock for three periods, but OSUj
put together twenty points in the
final fifteen minutes to ice the
verdict.
NORTHWESTERN: Southern
Cal exploded for four touchdowns
in the final period to romp over
the Wildcats, 31-0, before 60,000
West Coast fans.
The Evanston combine racked
up 12 first downs to 10 for the
Trojans, and unveiled an attack
that netted 210 yards. A last-
ditch USC passing attack snowed
under the Mid-Western invaders.

]$IINNESOTA: The University

of Washington, with All-American
Don Heinrich in the driver's seat,
downed the Gophers, 19-13, for its
third straight win over Ski-U-Mah.
in as many years.
Halfback Kermit Klefsaas went
off tackle for Minnesota's first
points with three minutes gone in
the second half, and full back
John Baumgartner capped a 63-
yard drive by going over from the
two-yard line late in the final
stanza.
ILLINOIS: Quarterback Tom-
my O'Connell completed 11 of 16
passes for 191 yards and a touch-
down as the Rose Bowl champion
Illini took it easy in a 33-7 con-
quest of Iowa State.
O'Connell found end John Ryan
with a 49-yard TD heave, and set
up two other scores with his ac-
curate air barrage.
* * *
CORNELL: Colgate achieved its
first success over the Red Raiders
since 1943 with a 14-7 triumph
that was made possible by an in-
tercepted pass and a Cornell fum-
ble. The losers scored with two
minutes left when halfback Lloyd
Walters grabbed an 11-yard fiat
pass from John Jaeckel,
PURDUE: Quarterback Dale
Samuels completed 14 of 28 passes
for 130 yards, but the Boilermak-
ers were forced to settle, for a
20-20 deadlock with underdog
Penn State.

--Daly--Don Campbell
RUNNING IT BACK-An unidentified Michigan State player attempts to trip up Michigan safety-
man Lowell Perry (85), returning a State punt in Saturday's action. It looks like Wolverine guard Don
Dugger (61) is applying the heave-ho to the Spartan defender, but actually he is getting set to
block for Perry. MSC triumphed, 27-13.
I-M SEASON UNDERWAY:
Dorm Champs Annex Frs ri est

By IVAN KAYE
Michigan's Wolverines served
notice to the Big Ten on Saturday
that they are very definitely go-
ing to be a force to be reckoned
with in the coming conference
chase.
The overall caliber of the var-
sity's play stamps the 1952 edition
of the Maize and Blue as a much
more powerful ball club than its
predecessor.It should be remem-
bered that last year's team came
within an ace of grabbing the laur-
els for the fifth straight season.
IFAS THE sportswriters voted.
Michigan State is the best squad
in the nation, then Michigan cer-
tainly rates in the upper strata of
college football's teams this sea-
son.
Saturday's line play was at
the least murderous, with the
Michigan forwards more than
holding their own against the
Greenshirts. Particularly out-
standing was the defensive end
play of Gene Knutson. The big
lad from Beloit, Wisconsin show-
ed the 97,239 fans just-why he
was voted the most improved
player of last spring's practice.
Excluding Spartan captain Don
McAuliffe's 70 yard touchdown
rurg the rushing totals for the
two teams were about even. The
State backs began moving later
in the game as the Michigan de-
fensive wall showed the effects of
the day's gruelling pace.

THERE IS no substitute for
depth, and no coach realizes this
fact better than Ben Oosterbaan
who watched his boys wear down
before a host of Spartan forwards,
Biggie Munn also had a tre-
mendous corps'of running back
around which to build his of-
fense. Some twelve leather-lug-
gers constituted his backfield
unit, with Billy Wells proving to
be the toughest to stop judging
from Saturday's encounter.
The Wolverines off their initial
outing appear to be a team pos-
sessed of terrific first string of-
fensive and defensive lines, a
more than efficient backfield and
a glaring defensive weakness in
the secondary.
The Maize and Blue ground out
a total of over three hundred
yards against their intra-state foes
to prove that they have the ability
this year to move the pigskin
against even the best of teams.
The pass defense however, al-
lowed Yewcic and company over
two hundred yards on eight com-
pletions in sixteen tries. Spartan
passes were highly instrumental
in three of-their four touchdowns.
With a pass-happy Stanford squad
on next Saturday's docket, the
coaches will undoubtedly devote
major efforts to the preparation
of an adequate aerial defense.

A first half touchdown pass
from Jim Robertson to Dave
Parks gave Wenley House a 7-0
victory over Huber and got the
winners off on the right foot in
defense of the residence halls
football title.
The touchdown came just be-
fore halftime and Wenley success-
fully stalled Huber's second half
offense to take the victory.

THE PASSING combination of
Don Jones to John Eckle featured
Greene House's 18-13 victory over
Taylor. The game was a nip-and-
tuck battle throughout, and Tay-
lor led 13-12 with a minute to go.
At this point Jones fired his
third touchdown pass of the
game to Eckle to ice the verdict.
In another thriller, Michigan
came back after seeing a 6-0 lead
melt away, to earn a 12-6 victory
over Gomberg in overtime. Dale
Ewadt intercepted a Gomberg pass
early in the second half and went
all the way to put Michigan in the
lead.
San Francisco
Defeats Lions;

Also Win in Openers
A partisan crowd of 54,761 spec-
tators was not disappointed Sun-
day as the San Francisco 49ers
celebrated the opening of the pro-
football season by defeating a
highly-touted Detroit Lions team,
17-3, in Kezar Stadium.
Behind Frankie Albert and Y.
A. Tittle, the 49ers quarterback
duo, Frisco tallied one touchdown
from the air while completing 16
of 27 passes for 164 yards.
* * *
THE 49ERS first score was set
up by Doak Walker's fumble on
Detroit's 36 yard line, in the first
period. Fullback Joe Perry hit the
end zone from the nine after half-
back J. R. Boone ran for 13 yards
and snagged a 14-yard pass from
Albert.
It was Boone again in the
third period who took Albert's
32-yard pass and raced 15 more
yards for the second San Fran-
cisco marker. Ex-Minnesota
kicker Gordon Soltau added a
field goal in the final stanza
besides his two successful con-
versions.
The Lions ground attack was
held to a near standstill and their
passes failed to produce. Doak

A PASS from Gomberg's Jim
Boetcher to Jim McClurg evened
the score and sent the contest into
overtime. It was here that an
aerial from Dale Ewart to Jim
Hatton gave the winning margin
to Michigan.
