Daily Sports Editor
Michigan and Ohio State meet under leaden skies this afternoon
before over 90,000 fans at the Stadium in the 50th renewal of a classic
midwestern football rivalry that began back in 1897.
The kickoff is scheduled for 1:30 p.m.
THE GAME MARKS the final appearance in Maize and Blue of
senior lettermen Ted Kress, Bob Hurley, Dick Balzhiser, Captain Dick
O'Shaughnessy, Don Dugger, Dick Beison, Ron Williams, Dick Stro-
zewski, Jim Balog, Don Bennett, Bob Topp, Gene Knutson, Tad
Stanford :and George Dutter.
Ohio State is rated as a solid one touchdown choice in this
afternoon's contest. The Buckeyes have previously lost to Illi-
nois and Michigan State, two of the three teams that conquered
the Wolverines.
Michigan is in its worst physical condition of the season. Injuries
incurred in the varsity's two previous conference games have badly
wealened the offense and defense. Big Gene Knutson will almost
certainly be forced to sit out his last college game because of a knee
injury sustained last Saturday at East Lansing.
FULLBACK Dick Balzhiser and wingback Tony Branoff are both
nursing shoulder injuries which have bothered them all season. Al-
though both are expected to appear this afternoon, there is no guar-
anfee as to the efficiency with which they will perform.
John Veselenak, Tad Stanford, Fred Baer and Ron Williams
were all hurt last week and will be restricted in their activity
today. Tackle Art Walker is still not up to full effectiveness due
to the persistent leg injury which has slowed him all year.
Discouraging as is the injury list, the varsity will still be able to
field its first string line from tackle to tackle. These men however
bore the brunt of the rugged Michigan State game a week ago, and
the effects of that all-out battle should weaken them especially in
view of the fact that Ohio's linemen had a virtual picnic last Satur-
day against the crippled Purdue Boilermakers.

A Senior's Final Contest...

Gloomy skies filled with rain and a stadium filled near capacity
are forecast for today's season-ending contest between the Michigan
Wolverines and the Ohio Buckeyes.
The weatherman said yesterday rains predicted for this morning
should be tapering off by kick-off time at 1:30 p.m.; but the day in
general will be windy, cloudy, cool and wet.
AN UNOFFICIALLY-ESTIMATED crowd of 91,000 football fol-
lowers-the season's best turnout-is expected to pour into the
University Stadium to witness the season's finale.
Michigan State Police at Ypsilanti are being reinforced with
troopers from other southern Michigan posts to control the tidal
waves of traffic converging on Ann Arbor. Local police will be on
hand to guide city traffic and the Michigan Union reports a
"full house" of guests for tonight.
The Michigan Marching Band under the dirertion of Dr. William
D. Revelli will trot out a new dance step to entertain pigskin enthus-
iasts at half time, and pre-game ceremonies will honor University
President Harlan H. Hatcher with an "H H H" formation.
"Up N' Atom"-theme song from the 1953 Union Opera of the
same name-will be aired publicly for the first time during pre-game
activities, as eight "chorus-girls" cavort on the Michigan gridiron.
* * * *
SPIRITUAL SONGS form the theme of the band's half-time
revue. The strains of "When the Saints Come Marching In" will her-
ald the opening of the show as the band takes the field.
The band will form an ark as they play "Old Ark's a Moverin"
and then build up a skeleton as "Dry Bones" gets the Michigan
Band treatment.
The David and Goliath will battle it out as the band plays
"Little David Play On Your Harp." Next, "Joshha Fit the Battle of
Jericoh" and then the tune of -"I Got Shoes, You Got Shoes," will
provide the rhythm for the band's new dance step.
Ohio State's 120-piece marching band will also perform at pre-
game and half-time, basing their show on tunes by George Gershwin.
