Pennsylvania's upset-minded Quakers will try and make it two big
victories in a row here today as they go against embattled Michigan,
still reeling from a 22-0 blanking at the hands of Minnesota and Paul
Giel at Minneapolis last Saturday.
In the middle of its exploited "suicide schedule" the rugged Red
and Blue outfit from the City of Brotherly Love will place a potent
obstacle in the road of the Wolverines who just last week were cod-
dling fond hopes of spending their New Years Day in Pasadena's
Rose Bowl.
A HOMECOMING crowd estimated at upwards of 60,000 will wit-
ness the intersectional clash which may well be decided by the un-
certain weather picture. Ominous predictions of rain could make
Michigan, favorites at present, slight underdogs.
The vaunted Pennsylvania defense led by highly-touted tackle
Jack Shanafelt and tiny 170-pound guard John "Mighty Mouse"
Cannon, would certainly benefit by inclement weather. But even
if the sun should shine, the Quakers will be a rugged club to handle
as witness the 9-6 beating they handed Navy's powerhouse last
Coming right on the tail of a horrendous 65-7 whip-lashing that
the Midshipmen hung on Princeton, the Penn victory is all the more
significant. Coach George Munger's outfit won by controlling the ball
-much as Minnesota did to drop the Wolverines from the unbeaten
ranks in the two teams "Little Brown Jug" clash.
* * * *
IT WAS QUARTERBACK Ed Gramigna-a third stringer at the
seasons start, who supplied the winning margin against Navy with a
field goal. Gramigna, a 170-pounder teams with 185-pound Bob Felver,
165-pound Gary Scott and Big Joe Varaitis, who tips the scales at
205 to form the Philadelphia club's first-string backfield.
Penn works from the single wing, the "T" and "A" forma-
tions, with bone-crushing fullback Varaitis, tailback Felver and
wingback Scott pace the Quakers running attack, while Gramigna
and Felver take care of the aerial game.

Last week the Red and Blue went to the air 32 times, and only
one other time in their long football history have the Quakers ever
atempted more passes. Lanky John Lavin, 190-pound right end pulled
in nine passes, setting a Penn record for most receptions in one game
as his running mate, left flanker Jim Castle snared three.
* * * *
A SMALL SQUAD of 36 men made the trip to Ann Arbor, but of
the front-line opei'atives only-Captain George Bosseler, injured in the
Quakers narrow 12-6 loss to Ohio State, is expected to miss the game
with Michigan.
As for Coach Ben Oosterbaan's Wolverines, a trio of first-
stringers who were injured against Minnesota still sport scars of
their unhospitable treatment in the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes.
Sophomore quarterback Lou Baldacci will probably wear a plastic
face mask to guard eight stitches in his nose and upper lip.'
Big John Morrow, 220-pound Ann Arbor sophomore who replaced
ailing Captain Dick O'Shaughnessy at center has the eight stitches
on his cheek protected with tape, while first-sring fullback Dick Balz-
hiser may be held to limited action because of an ailing hip and
* -* * * .
BOTH BOB HURLEY and Fred Baer have worked at starting full-
back and linebacker in practice sessions this past week and Duncan
McDonald and Ray Kenaga will be available to spell Baldacci at the
signal-calling spot.
O'Shaughnessy and Art Walker, who both stayed on the bench
up at Minneapolis last weekend appear ready to move back to their
familiar roles at center and tackle respectively. Walker's ailing
knee and ankle have apparently healed and he will share the left
tackle slot with senior Dick Strozewski.
Captain O'Shaughnessy along with John Peckham will probably
see plenty of action spelling Morrow.
No big pressure is on the Wolverines, considering the three big
Western Conference clashes looming on the schedule. With Illinois,
Michigan State and Ohio State coming up, the Penn contest may be
looked upon whimsically as a "tough breather."

NEW YORK has not yet formal-

cense to join in the power project
which, engineers estimate, will'
yield more than 12 billion kilo-

Counsel for New York has in-
dicated that the license will be
accepted on or before Nov. 5.
..Meantime, it was understood
that further court actions to halt
the project will be filed before Nov.

would be either the Public Pow-
