Michigan in High Spirits as OSU Battle Appr


Hayes Drops'Curtain'


On Buckeye Practices

. WIN! ~By LYNNE TOWLE wore them was in hssnhm a

Michigan braved cold weather
and showed high team spirits yes-
terday as it moved a day closer
to the "big day."
That "big day" is Saturday,
when Ohio State visits Michigan
The Wolverines went through a
routine workout with little varia-
tion from a usual Wednesday
practice. A small share of the
practice time was spent inside Yost
Field House, but the majority,
about an hour and a half, was
used up battling heavy and cold
November winds.
For one of the few times this
season, the Wolverines had no
injuries to worry about. This al-
lowed the coaches a chance to
work with the full squad.
Time was split between offense
and defense. The players went
through drills hustling and hol-
OSU Bars Reporters
Down in Columbus, Ohio, Coach
Woody Hayes barred all but three
sportswriters as he dropped the
iron curtain on Ohio State prac-
tices. The trio of scribes that
were allowed to watch the Buck-
eyes' prepare for Michigan were
from the three major Columbus
newspapers. They were ordered
to wear red shirts and remain
Hayes said that he ordered the
ban on sportswriters because "we
must guard against leaks. Last

season we had a letter from Michi-
gan, telling us .what the. Wolver-
ines were planning for us. And
Michigan also learned from down
here what we were planning. We'll
just have to keep everyone out."
Oosterbaan held a semi-secret
practice Tuesday as he mapped
out strategy to stop the Hopalong
Cassady-led Ohioans. The Wol-
verines put no restictions on yes-
terday's practice, but only a half-
dozen viewers were on hand.
NWhile Michigan was content
with having no major injuries, the
Buckeyes were greeted by the fact'
that All-America Cassady report-
ed to 'drills in what Hayes termed
as "the first time this year that
he reported to practice early irr
the week in good condition."
Harkrader Out
Hayes confirmed earlier reports
that Jerry Harkrader will miss the
Michigan game. The hard-luck
senior has been riddled with hip
and shoulder injuries during the'
current campaign, likewise in his
sophomore and junior years.
The loss of Harkrader will take'
some of the punch away from the
fine Ohio State rushing attack.
Michigan holds more than double
an edge in passing, though. While
Ohio State has only 16 comple-
tions and 158. yards passing in
eight games, the Maize and Blue
records show 41 connections and
398 yards.

Oh no!

The Daily's "Figger Filbert" has
come out of retirement to predict
the outcome of Saturday's crucial
,Michigan-Ohio State game - by
comparative scores.
As some of you may remember,
our friend "proved" last fall that
Slippery Rock could trounce Mich-
igan by 30 points (using his fool-
proof method, of course).
And now-an exclusive prediction
for Saturday's"game:
Here's how:
Michigan beat Michigan State
by seven points, which whipped
Notre Dame by 14, which defeated
Navy by 14. Navy scored 21 points
more than Pitt, which trounced
Duke by 19, which nipped Ohio
State by six.
There you are-no doubt about
Oops . . . hold it for a second
. Mrs. Filbert just called . . .
says that OSU will win . . . and
by 51 points ... her argument:
The Buckeyes beat Wisconsin by

10 points, which topped Purduet
by nine, which defeated Illinois
by 13, which trampled (sob) the
Wolverines by 19.

good sanitarium.

John Sloan will lead the visi-

semi-finalist in the 1955 National
three-wall singles play. Sloan also
managed to take one game bf three

Hershkowitz in the quarter finals

two of three games.

Although some people fail to
realize their importance penalties
sometimes play a big role in the
outcome of a football game.
In fact, they can often decide a
contest in themselves.
Such was the case in the Michi-
gan-Ohio State'game of 1949. Once
more we find the outcome of the
match deciding the Champion-
ship of the Western Conference,
then known as the Big Nine.
M' Favored
The Wolverines entered the
game as six-point favorites to cop
the decision and their third
straight crown. But, as has been
proven a myriad of times in the
past, no one can predict the out-
come of a Western Conference
game, especially a Michigan-Ohio
State clash.
Michigan Stadium was naturally
packed with its traditional 97,239,
tension-filled onlookers.
The Wolverines started off as
though they would set the Stadium
on fire. A first-quarter march was
climaxed by a scoring pass from
Wally Teninga to Leo Koceski.
Then, their attack apparently
thwarted, they mustered their de-
fensive forces-the best in the Big
Nine that year-and concentrated
on halting OSU's offensive, also
tops in the circuit.

back Fred Morrison, however. The
count then stood at 7-6, Michigan,
Jim Hague then stepped back
for the conversion. The ball sailed
high enough, but was wide-by
inches. The crowd's reaction shook
the rafters of the Stadium.
Penalty Hurts
However, the head linesman rul-
ed that. Michigan was offsides-
by inches-and the second at-
tempt was a success for Hague.
This made the final tally a 7-7

had made the trip the year before.
The season's climax left the two
squads tied with 4-1-1 marks and
a share of the title. But for expect-
ant Michigan, the afternoon was a

Another Fumble
When the Wolverines held fol-
lowing this miscue, they fielded a
Buckeye punt, worked two running
plays, and fumbled again on their
own 23. Seven plays later, Les Hor-
vath made it 12-7, State.
Again in the fourth quarter, af-
ter Michigan had taken a 14-12
lead, a bad kickoff put the Ohioans
on their own 49. This eventually
led to the final scoring action of
the day and an 18-14 victory for
the Bucks.
Thus, although Michigan has
won 33 out of 51 from Ohio State,
it does appear that the Ann Arbor-
ites have some vengeance coming

And who can tell? Perhaps some
of it will come this Saturday.

the Michigan men, who, together
with Purdue, had the previous year
"borrowed" the title which all
Ohioans felt was rightfully theirs.
Lady Luck pointed an evil finger
at the Maize and Blue that after-
noon. At the start of the second
half, Michigan was leading, 7-6,
when they drove deep into Ohio
territory only to suffer a costly

"Good things come 'in small
packages," so the saying goes.
Tipping the scales at 163 pounds,
George Corey, the smallest man on
the football team, certainly proves
that statement. Playing behind
such fine Michigan halfbacks as
Tony Branoff, Terry Barr, Jim
Pace, Ed Shannon and Ed Hickey
doesn't give Corey the chance to
show his talents. In the little
time he has played, he has dis-
played his capabilities, especially
as a runner.
Sets Up Touchdown
This year against Army the
elusive runner dashed 15 yards to
the Army four yard line preceding,
the last Michigan touchdown.
His biggest thrill came last year
against Minnesota. Corey caught
two passes for 50 yards, ran 15
yards, and played brilliant defense
as the Wolverines ran all over the
Gophers, emerging as the winners
by a 34-0 count.
He played in every game last
season for a total of 70 minutes.
I-M Football
The I-M touch football cham-
pionship games were postponed
for the second straight day be-
cause of inclement weather.
The games have been re-
scheduled for today at Ann Ar-
bor High's Wines Field. The
independents will play at 6:30,
the residence halls:at 7:30, and
the social fraternities at 8:30.
The professional fraternities
championship will precede the
others. The game is scheduled
to tart at 5:30.
Illinois was the only game in
which he has failed to see action
this fall.
The senior from Baden, Pa., is
a history major in pre-law. He
hopes to enter Law School this
summer. One of his chief reasons
in coming to Michigan was be-
cause "the Law School looked
good" when he first visited the
Michigan campus. He planned to
play football wherever he went.
