Exactly fifty years ago this
month a youthful football man-
ager, an elderly groundskeeper,
and a cheap chunk of crockery,
unwittingly collaborated in the
starting of Michigan's most treas-
ured athletic tradition.
This tradition is the Little
Brown Jug, the trophy emblematic
of Michigan - Minnesota football
battles, the latest of which is to,
be enacted in Minnesota's Memor-
ial Stadium come this Saturday
THE ORIGINAL jug was not
little, was not brown, and was not
even brought by the Michigan
team to Minneapolis. In fact, it
was purchased when the team ar-
rived, by manager Thomas Rob-
erts '04, because Coach Fielding
"Hurry-Up" Yost had fears that
if his team used a Minnesota sup-
plied jug, it might contain prop-
erties not conducive to good foot-
So Roberts went to a down-
town Minneapolis store, and pur-
chased a large five gallon grey
jug for all of 30 cents. He trun-
dled it back to old Northrup
Field, and on Oct. 31, 1903 he
placed the big jug on the Mich-
igan bench, unaware of the des-
tiny which awaited it.
The game itself, typical of the
early 20th century games, was a
bloody brawl, slow-moving and
hard fought. Michigan scored the
first touchdown early in the third
quarter when burly tackle Joe
Maddock plowed over from the one.


on the jug, one half of the crock
was painted Maroon and Gold,
the other half Maize and Blue.
* * *
THUS A GREAT tradition was
born, with the winner retaining
possion of the 30 cent jug. The
Wolverines were the most con-
sistent holders of the trophy, as
Minnesota did not get it again un-
til 1919. After a series of ex-
changes, the jug returned to Ann
Arbor in 1943, and has been Mich-
igan property ever since.
Tomorrow the old jug will be

dragged from its resting place
in the athletic department's safe
down at Ferry Field, (the jug
in the Union trophy case-is a
replica) and carried to Minneap-
olis. On Saturday afternoon, the
precious crock will be placed on
the Michigan side of field at the
50 yard line.
Thus the Little 1rown Jug re-
turns to the same field where fifty
years ago it stood unnoticed on
the bench, only to later become
probably the most famed and
valued trophy in college football.


AI" sI,

Coach Ben Oosterbaan sent his
Michigan football team through
an extensive drill yesterday in
preparation for its first away game
of the season next Saturday
against Minnesota.
Quarterbacks Lou Baldacci,
Duncan McDonald, Ray Kenaga
and Bill McKinley led a trio of
backfields through the long non-
contact session against the block-
ing dummies.
* * *
MC DONALD, outstanding in his
last two appearances against Iowa
and Northwestern, continued his
pin-point passing during the work-
out. He consistently fired com-
pleted aerials to ends Bob Topp,
John Veselenak, Jerry Williams
and Tad Stanford.
Earlier ,inrthe afternoon the
Wolverine defensive combina-
tions went through contact
scrimmage againstuthe fourth
and fifth stringers' imitations of
the Gopher plays.
The squad consistently smgar-
ed the reserves' impersonator of
Minnesota's great triple-threat
tailback, Paul Giel. However, the
stopping of Giel himself will prob-

ably be a slightly different mat-
stifle him fairly successfully last
year, but his 400 yards-plus rec-
ord gained in his first four games
this season point to a busy after-
noon for Michigan defenders this
Oosterbaan utilized the same
defensive units yesterday that
have seen most of the action in
Michigan's first four winning ef-
forts. Art Walker and Dick
O'Shaughnessy are still suffer-
ing from leg injuries and will
probably see only limited action
Walker was not present at prac-
tice yesterday. Sophomore Bill
Kolesar, nephew of the former
Michigan tackle who performed in
the late 1930's, moved into Walk-
er's spot behind Dick Strozewski.
Kolesar was impressive last Satur-
day -in a short stint during the
Northwestern contest.
Fred Baer, who hasn't been
much in evidence since he start-
ed the first two games last year
for the Wolverines, was given a
lot of work. yesterday at the left
defensive linebacker slot.

WITH ONLY two minutes left
to play, the Golden Gophersmoved
over the Michigan goal, and then
added the extra point to tie up
the game. Minnesota fans went
wild. They mobbed the, team,
flooding the field so that the game
could not be resumed. In the wild
confusion, thefateful jug was left
standing on the Wolverine bench.
When the Minnesota grounds-
keeper, an elderly gent named
Oscar Munson, found the jug
the next day, he took it to the
Gopher athletic director. The
director put it in the trophy case,
with the notation "Michigan
Jug--Captured Oct. 31, 1903" af-
fixed to it.
The years passed, and it wasn't
till 1909 that Minnesota sent
Michigan a letter saying, "We have
your jug, come up and win it."
The Wolverines did just that, win-
ning 15-6, and they triumphant-'
ly carried their old jug back to
Ann Arbor. The score was lettered
