the nation's top pass receivers and
defensive ends according to Oost-
erbaan-and should take up a
good deal of the slack left by
Kramer's vacuum.

Halfbacks Aplenty
The halfback situation is pre-

Tony Branoff. who has been ham-
pered by a leg injury, has finally
shaken some of the tape which
weighed him down-and in drills
yesterday he looked as fast as he
did two seasons ago when his
runs terrorized the conference.
In Terry Barr at the other half,
Michigan has a halfback which
seems to have finally come into
his own. His showing against Army
last week was brilliant, and if he
is half as good today-it will be
worthwhile watching.
A third halfback who may see
more thai limited action is Jim
Pace, potentially one of the most
flashy and sensational runners in
Michigan history. Pace is being

THE WILDCATS FROM Northwestern pulled down Michigan's Jerry Williams in last year's Michi-
gan-Northwestern clash at Evanston. Although Northwestern outgained Michigan three to one, the
Wolverines capitalized on seven Wildcat fumbles, turning Ed Mead's second period recovery into the
only score of the game. Danny Cline tallied on a one yard plunge and Kramer split the uprights to
make it 7-0.

An extra point spelled a 7-6 vic-
tory for Psi Upsilon over Zeta Beta
Tau in an IM touch football game
at South Ferry Field yesterday
afternoon.
Led by the strong passing arm
of Bill Hoffhines, plus a powerful
running attack, the Psi U's over-
came a 6-0 ZBT lead to pull the
game out of the fire. Hoffhines'
passes set up the touchdown, but
it was Keith Olson who finally
dived over for the score. The all-
important extra point was added
by Art Kuiper.
In the only other fraternity
contest, Beta Theta Pi finally
bested Chi Psi 1-0 in a tight de-
fensive battle that went into over-
time.
Bob Crawford's passing, com-
bined with a tight defense, gave
the Pillpushers a 12-0 win over
a determined Owen Co-Operative
eleven.

"BATTLE FOR SURVIVAL":
Lions Face Big Test Against '49ers

i 0

DETROIT, Mich.-It figures to
be a real "battle for survival" when
she Detroit Lions square off against
the San Francisco 49'ers in Briggs
Stadium Sunday.
A loss for either the Lions or
49'ers would almost eliminate one
or the other from contention in
the ruggest Western Division race
...with two-thirds of the sea-
son's schedule coming up. A year
ago the two teams met in Briggs
Stadium with the division lead
at stake and Coach Buddy Par-
ker's club raced off with a sur-
prising 48-7 decision.
In the topsy-turvy 1955 NFL
race there is little to choose be-
tween the two clubs. The 49'ers
sport a better record, having won
one game while losing two, while
' the Lions are winless, but the re-
sults of previous games mean lit-
tle when so much is at stake for
each team. The San Francisco
club is a slight favorite based on
x their victory, 20-19, over the Chi-
cago Bears in Chicago last Sun-
day.
Lions 'Patched-up'
For the fourth straight week,
Parker is forced to send a patched-
up lineup against an NFL oppon-
ent. The Lions co-captains, of-
fensive guard Dick Stanfel and
defensive halfback Jack Christian-
sen, are not scheduled to see ac-
tion. Stanfel is sidelined with a

recurrence of a back injury that
hampered his play for a large
share of the 1954 season, while
Christiansen still is bothered with
a badly bruised knee.
Parker and his staff have spent
the major portion of practice time
leading up to the game on im-
proving the Lions ground attack
that has netted the defending
Western Division champions a
meager 303 yards in three games.
Parker has indicated that the vet-
erain Bob Hoernschemeyer wll be
inserted into the starting lineup
to team with Lew Carpenter to
bolster the running game. Hoern-
schemeyer missed the first two
games because of a knee injury
but now is in top shape.
49ers in Better Shape
San Francisco, which has been
troubled also by the injury jinx,
figures to be in better shape for
the Lions than for any game to
date. Hugh McElhenny, truly
one of the game's great halfbacks,
was used primarily as a decoy.
against the Chicago Bears but has
been running well in this week's
drills.
Carroll Hardy, rookie halfback
who shares McElhenny's duties,
also has been sidelined but may
be back for the Lions. Ends Har-
ry Babcock and Tom Stolhandske
are unlikely to see game duty
against the Lions.

With McElhenny at full strength,
the 49ers boast one of the finest
backfield combinations everw as-
sembled, with Y. A. Tittle at
quarterback, John Henry Johnson
at left halfback, and the fabulous'
Joe "Jet" Perry at fullback.
Only Player
Perry is the only played in NFL
history ever to gain better than
1,000 yards rushing in two con-
secutive seasons. He already is
the second leading ground gainer
of all-time in the league.

For Title Bout
CHICAGO (AP) - Middleweight

former champion Sugar Ray Rob-
inson Friday will sign formal con-
tracts for their 15-round title bout
at the Chicago Stadium, Nov. 4.
The Friday night bout will -be

"Extra" Practice
Daugherty had his squad prac-

part of his preparation for Satur-

Notre Dame.
"Maybe I'm an optimist," said
Daugherty, "when you remember
Notre Dame hasn't even been,
