McGee Sparks the Tulane
Three Offensive Patterns
* * *

If it sees nothing else Michigan
will see a variety of offensive for-
mations when it faces Tulane in
the stadium this Saturday.
The game will be the first time
Michigan and Tulane have met in
33 years, the Wolverines winning
that 1920 contest in Ann Arbor
with a lopsided 21-0 margin.
* * *
ALTHOUGH chiefly a T-forma-
tion team the Green Wave has a
versatile crew which is also ready
to evolve plays from the split T
and double-wing formations.
Coach Raymond (Bear) Wolf,
in his second year with the
Greenies, has a well stocked
backfield which is sparked by
seniors Max McGee, Pete Cle-
ment,' and Ronnie Kent.
In two games this season, a
54-6 pasting of Citadel and a close
16-15 loss to Georgia, McGee has
proved himself a top triple threat
man.
THE 6-3, 195-POUND senior
switched from the fullback slot to
right halfback this year in order
to make room for Kent in the
backfield. Kent broke his leg early
last September and is just return-
ing for the 1953 campaign.
Taking to his new position
4 McGee now leads Tulane in
practically every department. He
has netted 145 yards on the
ground for a 6.5 average, has
scored three touchdowns, has
caught three passes for 73 yards
and one touchdown, and is the
leading punter with a 44.5 yard
average. McGee also leads in
punt returns and kickoff re-
turns besides having made a
number of key tackles defen-
sively. -
Clement handles Tulane's quar-
terbacking chores and is backed
ably by Ray Weidenbacher, an-
other senior who made a good

Grid Squad
Gets Ready
For Tulane
Michigan's football squad yes-
terday went through another spir-
ited practice session in anticipa-,
tion of Saturday's battle with Tu-
lane.
Led by Ted Kress and Tony
Branoff, the varsity ranthrough,
around, and over the reserves in
a short contact scrimmage. The
varsity's forward wall practically
annihilated the reserve line as the
regulars moved up and down the
field.
* * *
ALTHOUGH running plays were
emphasized, Kress and quarter-
back Lou Baldacci threw an oc-
casional pass. Ends Bob Topp and
Gene Knutson, along with Bran-
off, put on a display of sensational
receiving.
Matching their offensive show,
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan's reg-
ulars held the reserves to three
small gains on 17 successive
plays during defensive scrim-
mage.
Earlier, the Wolverines had
numerous backfields polishing of-
fensive manuevers in a long dum-
my scrimmage. Also getting a stiff
rehearsal was the pass defense as
the fifth string executed pass plays
from Tulane's T-, split-T, and
double wing formations.
With Branoff and Baldacci at
the halves and Kress alternating
with Dan Cline at safety, the sec-
ondary allowed few passes to get
through.
A little excitement was provided
when a long throw bounced off
Baldacci's fingertips and was jug-
gled three or four times by the
end, who finally snatched it.
Branoff and Baldacci also work-
ed on punting with the intention
of improving last week's 27.6-yard
average when the Maize and Blue
meet the Green Wave. Conversion
attempts, too, received attention.

hitter George Shuba in the sixth,
Manager Chuck Dressen could-
n't find a stopper.
Billy Martin hit a three-run
triple with the bases loaded off
Erskine in the first and added a
pair of singles to lead the Yankee

provided the home run punch.

pitches for home runs before Man-
ager Casey Stengel brought in the
tobacco chawin' Sain. Curve-ball
Johnny allowed only one more run
and five hits over the last four
and two thirds innings to earn the
victory.
Reynolds threw like a man
determined to go as far as he
could and let Stengel worry
about the late innings. He was
superb in the first four, blank-
ing the Brooks with only two
hits.
From the time Gilliam, the
rookie who chased Jackie Robin-
son off second base, hit his homer
into the right field seats 'in the
fifth, it was obvious that Reynolds
wuold be lucky to go nine.
TIME AFTER time he went to

three balls on the hitter. When he
finally was yanked after Hodges'
blast and Shuba's two-run pinch
homer in the sixth, he had thrown
104 pitches. Most pitchers average
about 120 or so for a full game.
Although Reynolds failed in his
attempt to tie Red Ruffing's all-
time mark of seven series victories,
he struck out six men.

By TED KAUFMAN
Sigma Chi, last year's touch
football champions, continued
their winning ways with a 27-2
decision over Phi Kappa Tau at
Ferry Field yesterday.
Norm Canty flipped four scoring
passes to lead the victors. The first
covered twenty yards and was
caught by Jim Young. Bob Little-1
son caught a Canty pass for the
extra point. A Canty to Gus Cav-
alarius pass was good for six more
with the same combination adding
the extra point.
* * *
IN THE SECOND half two more
passes from Canty doubled the
score. The first was caught by Bill
Ammerman, with the try for ex-
tra point being no good, and the
last was to Jim Young with Gus
Cavalarius again on the receiving
end for the extra point.
The Phi Kappa Tau two points
came in the first half when Sig-
ma Chi's Jim Young intercept-
ed a pass in the end zone and
was tagged for a safety.
Phi Gamma Delta rolled over
Phi Kappa Sigma, 20-0. Pete Paul-
us staged a one-man show as he
passed and ran the Phi Gams to
victory. He passed to Howie Liv-
erance for th efirst marker and to
Jack Cox for the extra point.
PAULUS THEN intercepted a
pass and ran thirty yards for the
score with the try for extra point
being no good. Paulus'completed
his afternoons work with a thirty-
five yard run around right end and
a ,good pass to Howie Liverance, for
the twentieth point.
Tau Delta Phi put on a des-
perate last ditch effort to beat
Acaia 7-2. Acacia was leading
2-0 by virtue of a bad pass from
center which was dropped in the
end zone by the Tau Delts. With
two minutes left in the game
Gene Curtis tossed a pass to
Max Schwartz for the TD. A
Curtis-Sherm Carmell pass play
added the seventh point.
Theta Delta Chi fell victims be-
fore Phi Delta Tleta by the score
of 20-0. The Phi Delts first mark-
er came when Don Mclaren inter-
cepted a Theta Delta Chi pass and
ran fourty yards to score. Rusty

Swaney passed to Joe Yope for
the extra point.
* * *
THE PHI DELTS last 13 points
came on two pass plays, one from
Doug Lawrence to Phil Endref
and the other from Horace Ward
to Chuck Betts. A Rrusty Swaney-
Doug Lawrence pass added the last
extra point.
Dale Ewert threw two touch-
down passes to lead Chi Psi to a
13-6 win over Delta Upsilon. Ew-
ert's first toss was caught by
Pete Danzhaf with the try for
extra point being blocked. Art
Fairbanks caught the second
pass and Ewert threw to Stu
Scheifele to complete scoring.
Delta Upsilon's touchdown came
on a pass from Skip Knauss to
Steve Pannes.
DELTA CHI proved too strong
for Tau Kappa Epsilon as they
beat the TKEs, 19-13. Gene Hol-
combe caught two touchdown
passes for Delta Chi. One was
thrown by Ron Hansen and the
other by Paul DeMarrais. The

other Delta Chi score came on' a
run by Ron Hansen. A Hansen-
Holcombe pass accounted for the
extra point.
Armin Tuffer and Noel Bisel mo-
nopolized the TKE scoring. First
Bisel passed to Tuffer and then
Tuffer returned with a good pass
to Bisel. The same duo with Bisel
pitching and Tuffer receiving net-
ted the extra point.
In a professional fraternity
game, Delta Sigma Delta blanked
Alpha Chi Sigma I3-0. Dave Mills
passed for both of the, winners
TDs. The first was to Ed Schacki
and the second to Charlie Mur-
ray. Stan Gilliland lugged the pig-
skin for the extra point.

BIG TEN GRID ROUNDUP:
MSC Prepares for Tilt with Gophers

By The Associated Press
EAST LANSING - Michigan
State lays a lot on the line in the
football game with Minnesota Sat-
urday,
Since the Spartans already have
one Big Ten win and are the only
conference team playing a Big Ten
opponent, they could automatical-
ly take over leadership in the Rose
Bowl race.
THEN THERE'S Biggie Munn's
record of 25 consecutive wins with-
out a tie to be considered.
And Munn is almost equally
proud of the fact that he's now
beaten 10 Big Ten teams in suc-
cession-Minnesota could be
number 11.
If Michigan State makes it 26,
the Spartans will shatter Michi-
gan's modern day record. The two

teams are tied as far as modern
football is concerned since the
Wolverines had a 25-game streak
from 1946 to 1949.
THEN TOO, if you're reaching
for records, Michigan State beat
Minnesota in their only other
meeting. So MSC could continue
victorious in the short history of
the series.
Munn, a native son, will be
making his first appearance
against his old school. So there's
that angle involved too.
And after fielding the national
champions and being named
"Coach of the Year" last year,
Munn will be very much the local
boy who wants' to make good.
* * *
THE HEAVY work during the

past week and the tense attitude
of the coaches is proof that Mich-
igan State is going all out to win
this one.
- * * *
MINNEAPOLIS - Minnesota
Coach Wes Fesler searched for a
formula to slow down Michigan
State's hearalded pony backfield
and experienced added worry
when first string tackle Stav Ca-
nakes came up with a charley
horse.
Canakes was taking treatment
along with guard Harry Coates,
whose pulled leg muscle improv-
ed enough to permit him to run
signal drills.
The Spartans will arrive here by
plane Thursday night.
EVANSTON -- Bob McKeiver,
speedysophomore halfback from
Evanston, took part in dummy
scrimiages and is expected to be
ready to enter Northwestern's
lineup against Army Saturday.
McKeiver has been nursing 'a
foot injury and was withheld from
the Wildcats' opener with Iowa
State.
MADISON-Wisconsin's second-
string quarterback, Buzz Wilson,
was back for football practice aft-
er a brief stay in the infirmary
with a skin infection.

New In juries
And Reynolds
NEW YORK -- (A')-- Allie Rey-
nolds, star Yankee righthander,
hurt his back in the third inning
Wednesday and may be through
for the series.
The Chief said after the game
that he wrenched his back while
throwing a pitch in the third in-
ning "and this may finish me for
the series."
* * *
HE WAS knocked out of the box
in the Dodgers' three-run sixth
inning.
Manager Casey Stengel was
downcast about the injury but
hopeful that he might be able to
get a little more help from his
ace.
"It's the same thing that has
bothered me ever since the bus ac-
cident in Philadelphia," he ex-
plained. "I first strained it when
I went a little off balance on a
pitch in the third inning.
"THEN IN the fifth, I hurt it
again. And when Istarted the sixth
inning, I didn't have a thing."
,Reynolds recalled that original
injury came when he was tossed
out of his seat when a Yankee bus
crashed into an overpass near a
Philadelphia railroad station aft-
er a night game in June.
X-rays may be taken Thurs-
day to determine whether
Brooklyn catcher Roy Campa
nella broke a finger on his right
hand in Wednesday's first series
game with the Yankees.
He was hit on the hand by an
Allie Reynolds' pitchein the second
inning. It pained him, but Campy
insisted on continuing in the game.
Afterwards, the little finger of
the hand was swollen and discol-
ored.
