YACKEL NEW STANDOUT:
Minnesota Features Potent Backfield

Advance in First Place

&

Lettermen Return as Stager
Leads Natators Through Drills

Michigan football followers are
hoping that the old time adage
"the bigger they are the harder
they fall" comes true this weekend,
and with good reason.
A Minnesota team that is already
being compared to the famed Ger-
mue Bierman juggernaughts of the
30's and early 40's is on its way
toward the Michigan Stadium for a
homecoming date with the Wolver-
ines this Saturday afternoon, and
they are bringing with them one
of the most remarkable backfields
of the current season.
Perhaps the more remarkable
man in the backfield is Ken Yack-
el, a third string fullback far more
famous for his ice hockey ability.
Yackel, one of Johnny Mariucci's
crack hockey defensemen, did not
come out for football until midway
in his junior year, and rarely saw
action.
Murry Warmath, new Gopher
coach, was desperate last Satur-
day against Illinos as a result of
injuries to his top two fullbacks,
John Baumgartner, and Frank

GENE CAPPELETTI
*. . sparks Gophers
Bachman, so he turned to the
bench and called in Yackel.
Warmath had never seen Yackel
play in an actual game before,
only remembering him for his
steady and rugged play on the
hockey ice. It was a gamble, but
it paid off.

The ex-ice star carried the ball
13 times, and ran through the Il-
lini for 108 yards, an average of
8.3 yards a carry. If this showing
is any indication of his ability, the
Wolverines better watch out for
him this Saturday afternoon.
Another unusual twist to the Go-
pher backfield is the presence of
brothers, Bob and Don MacNa-
mara. Bob working from right
half is the workhorse of the Min-
nesota team, carrying the mail 44
times for 287 yards, and boasting
a 6.5 average. Hisbrother Don,
last year an understudy to the
great Paul Giel, currently has car-
ried 20 times for 71 yards and a
3,5 average.
When one considers these aver-
ages, thrown together with the 7.3
rushing mark of first string full-
back John Baumgartner, and the
top notch passing of quarterback
Gene Cappeletti, the Wolverines
are in for a workout this Saturday
afternoon.
Add to all this a typical Minne-
sota line, a line that has held four
opponents to a paltry 557 yards
(compared to the Gophers' 1115
total) and you can readily see why
Minnesota currently ranks as the
eighth team in America.
It will take quite some football
to wrest the Little Brown Jug from
the Gophers. Whether the Wolver-
ines can do it or not will be an-
swered this Saturday afternoon in
the Stadium.
{ Bulletin
PHILADELPHIA (WP)-Sturdy
Johnny Saxton, fighting a cau-
tious counter-punching battle,
stripped listless Kid Gavilan of
his world welterweight title
yesterday on a unanimous deci-
sion in a dull 15-round bout at
Convention Hall.
The 24-year-old new cham-
pion, a New York Golden Glove
grad, won the votes of all three
officials after a battle marred
by much holding, wrestling,
tugging and shoving. At times
it looked more like a wrestling
match than a fight.
"It was a lousy fight," said
Chairman Frank Wiener of the
Pannsylvania Athletic Commis-
sion. "But I guess they did as
well as they could."
Only in the closing minutes,
when the Cuba Keed staged his
only real Gavilan-style burst
of action did the customers
warm up.

I-M Fraternity Playoffs
Cli Psi, Triangle Cop Second Place Tilts ;
Alpha Delts, Theta Chi, Phi Sigs Also Win

Mort Siegel's 20-yard pass to
Bill Gardner with only a minute
remaining in the game gave Zeta
Beta Tau a 6-0 victory over Phi
Gamma Delta in yesterday's In-
tramural fraternity league football
play-off games at South Ferry
Field.
The scoring toss followed 39
minutes of stellar defensive play
by both squads and enabled Zeta
Beta Tau to gain the semi-finals
of the fraternity first place play-
offs. Each team repelled one rha-
jor threat by the opposition before
the game was finally decided.
ZBT managed to reach the Phi
Gam's one-yard line early in the
second quater on a 40 yard pass
from Siegel to Gardner and tw)
short tosses hauled in by Harry
Israel and Howard May. However,
Phi Gam staged a successful goal-
line stand to keep the game score-
less.
Kappa Sigma scored first, but
Chi Psi soon found its scoring
punch to pound out a 26-12 tri-
umph in one of two second place
play-off tilts.
Tom Case connected to Glen
Thomet for the opening touch-
down for the Kappa Sigs. How-
ever, Dale Ewart found the range
for Chi Psi with.a touchdown toss
to Stu Scheifele to make the half-
time score 6-6.
Scheifele, Art Fairbanks, and
Bob Brown gathered in passes
from Ewart in the second half to
bring Chi Psi's touchdown total
to four for the day. A pass from
Case to Dave Swanson garnered
Kappa Sigma's final six-pointer.
In the other second place play-
off encounter Triangle mastered
Alpha Sigma Phi, 26-7. It was a
day for the Andersons with Paul
and Harry (not related) each
catching two touchdown passes
from John Rackov for Triangle.
Alpha Sigma Phi's lone marker
came on Jim McCafferty's aerial
to Bruce McCubbrey late in the
first half.
Alpha Phi Alpha and Theta Chi
advanced in the third place play-
offs by chalking up wins over Psi
Upsilon and Phi Kappa Tau, re-
spectively. Don Eaddy ran for one
touchdown and passed for the two
others in Alpha Phi Alpha's 19-7
victory.

Psi U managed to hit the scor-
ing column on a 15-yard pass from
Hugh Banninga to Carl Heller
with five minutes remaining in
the game.
Theta Chi's margin of victory
over Phi Kappa Tau was by vir-
tue of a completed extra point
aerial from Ray Roble to John
Tower. This followed a touchdown
completion from Roble to Bob
MacKenzie and offset an earlier
six-pointer recorded for Phi Kap-
pa Tau on a throw from Jack
Stephenson to Rex Youse.
Phi Sigma Delta won its fourth
place playoff tilt by a 6-0 margin
over Theta Xi. Late in the game
Warren Singer connected on a 20-
yard aerial to Ivan Kahn to win
the game for the Phi Sigs.
Bob Olson scored two touch-
downs and Booker Williams hit
pay-dirt once to lead Tau Epsilon
Rho to an 18-13 triumph over Al-
pha Omega in the pro-fraternity
league meeting.
In the meanwhile, Theta Delta
Chi was declared winner by for-
feit over Delta Chi when the lat-
ter team was absent for its sched-
uled fraternity league tilt.

Michigan's swimmers b e g a n
their workouts for the 1954-55 sea-
son on land Monday as coach Gus
Stager ran his team through cal-
isthenics.
After a half hour of the land
drills, the team went upstairs to
the Sports Building pool to con-
clude the workout with a half mile
swim.
The calisthenics are being done
iin the weight room of the Sports
Building for the present, but Sta-
ger hopes to move the exercises
to the Field House within a few
days.
Dry land workouts with a little
dose of distance swimming will be
the prescription for the first month
and a half of practice. At the end
of that time emphasis will be
placed on the actual swimming and
calisthenics will be carried on by
the swimmers individually through-
out the remainder of the season.
Team spirit was exceptionally
high as the season began and a
great enthusiasm for their new
coaches was displayed by the mem-
bers of the team. Stager and
Bruce Harlan, diving coach, are
very popular and have already in-
stilled a spirit of determination in
their first college team. The swim-
mers themselves are anxiously
awaiting the opening meet and a
chance to provide the youthful
coaches with a winner.

Almost all of last year's team,
second in the national champion-
ships, is back. Captain Bumpy
Jones, the Wardrop twins, Bert and
Jack, Ron Gora, and diver Jim
Walters, the "big guns" of last
year's success, are all looking for-
ward to a better season.
Versatility will undoubtedly be
the main factor in the strength of
the team. Jones and both of the
Wardrop twins are outstanding in-
dividual medley men and can swim
almost any event in the meet. All
three were named to the All-Amer-
ican team in several events. Jones
holds the world and American rec-
ord for the individual medley while
Jack Wardrop upset Ohio State's
Ford Konno in the NCAA meet
last March, breaking the world
record in the 220 yard freestyle.
Walters heads the diving corps,
this season made up of himself,
Charley Bates, and sophomore
John Narcy. Several sophomore
swimmers stand to aid the varsity
considerably this year. Breast-
strokers John Hubly, and Jim
Thurlow and Fritz Myers, individ-
ual medley man and freestyler
Tom Prunk hope to break into the
lineup.
The backstroke positions will
probably be filled by lettermen
Jim Kruthers and Don Potter.
Sophomore Ron Puddock should
give the team added depth. Breast-
strokers Mike Delaney and Glen
Miller are also back to fill their
old positions.
Gora and Pete Dow are left to
fill the vacant spots. Sophomores
Harrison Wehner and Tony Pear
aspire to fit into the lineup also.

tions in the rehearsal for Satur-
day's big clash with Minnesota,
McDonald pleased head coach Ben-
nie Oosterbaan as he continuously
hit downfield targets.

a mid-week practice, as tackling
and blocking were sharp through-
out the afternoon.
Seeing action for the second
straight day were halfbacks Tony
Branoff and Ed Hickey. Both men

Also leaving early was Ron Kra-
mer, who suffered a leg injury in
Saturday's victory over North-
western. Kramer, however, is ex-
pected to be at the left end slot
at kickoff time Saturday.

shoulder injury that recurred in

says his shoulder feels all right
when his arm is at rest, but any
movement is painful.
Sophomore Tom Maentz will
