Homecoming Tilt To Draw 70,000;

By HANLEY M. GURWIN
Associate Sports Editor
For the first time in 13 years, Michigan will be seeking to wrest
the Little Bown Jug fronm the grasp of Minnesota as the Wolverines
and Gophers square off in Michigan Stadium this afternoon before
a Homecoming Day crowd of over 70,000 fans.
Kick-off time for the 45th meeting between the schools is 2 p.m.

Gophers, who last year ran away with the jug on the strength of
a 22-0 whitewashing of the Maize and Blue, rate as a one-touchdown

entered the contest as the challengers for the fabled bit of crookery,
this is not the first time that they have assumed the role of the
In 1949, a highly touted Gopher eleven came storming into Ann
Arbor with an impressive 4-0 record, exactly the same mark which
they bring into today's game, and sporting a championship gleam
in their eyes.
The Wolverines meanwhile had been having troubles along
the way and most observers were
expecting Minnesota to win its
first game here since 1941.
The Wolverines had a different lans Made

agreement being made here unless
the Saar dispute is settled.
