Relies On Speed
Kramer, Barr To See Some Action
As Wolverines Try for Second Win
By DICK CRAMER
Associate Sports Editor
Michigan's ability to rebound from football defeat will be sternly
tested today as the Wolverineshost an unbeaten Army team at 1:30
p.m. in the Michigan Stadium.
With their hard-fought loss to Michigan State almost a week be-
hind them, the Wolverines appeared yesterday to have regenerated
the spirit necessary to put them back lnethe win column.
They will be facing one of the fastest, most experienced Army
squads in recent years-a squad that holds impressive triumphs over
Virginia Military Institute and Penn State already this year. Last
year Michigan defeated Army,.26-2.
Both teams are expected to be in reasonably good physical shape,
although there are some questionable starters on the Michigan squad.
Possible Wolverine Switches
Late yesterday afternoon Wolverine Coach Bennie Oosterbaan
stated that his opening lineup was the same as last week's "as of
now." But left end Ron Kramer and right halfback Terry Barr are
Pace continued to share first string assignments with Ptacek in
yesterday's light drills.
Coach'Earl "Red" Blaik of the Black Knights will be missing only
halfback Gene Mikelonis because of injuries. Slated for starting left
half, Mikelonis broke his leg before the season began and will not see
action in 1956. In his place will be Joe Cygler who didn't play last
year because of a broken ankle, but who averaged over five yards per
carry in 1954.
No Other Cadet Injuries
Otherwise, the Cadets have no casualties left over from their first
Six of today's starters for the Black Knights were on hand last
year when Michigan registered its first win in six contests between
the schools. Four others were regulars for the Cadets at some point
in the 1955 season. Only one man among today's starters, 235-lb. left
tackle Fred Wilmoth, is in his first year of varsity competition.
The performance of the fastest of the Cadets, senior Bob Kyasky,
is considered of greatest importance to Army today. Kyasky is tied
with former All-American Glenn Davis as holder of the Military
Academy's record in the 100-yd. dash at 9.7 seconds.
As a halfback for the past two seasons, Kyasky was able to play
very little because of a long string of injuries. Now he has been trans-
fered to quarterback and seems to be in perfect condition for today's
Coach Blaik commented yesterday that Kyasky "has adapted
much more quickly to his new position than did last year's quarter-
back Don Holleder." Holleder had been converted from end where
he was an All-American in 1954.
Other lettermen complete Army's starting backfield alignment.
Fullback Vince Barta who started against Michigan last year, and
halfbackers Dick Murtland and Cygler will all share the spotlight
with Kyasky in the Cadets' T-formation offense.

Both Barr and Kramer continued their activity as preparations
for the Army clash closed yesterday. Kramer's hairline-fractured left
hand will be heavily padded today and Barr's bruised hip may pre-
vent his full efficiency.

At Monday Meeting

East Ann Arbor's request for
annexation will probably be grant-

its meeting Monday night, accord-

The rare proposal for Ann Arbor
to annex an entire city was pre-
sented to the Council two weeks

Ann Arbor residents.
The issue will be presented to
Ann Arbor residents in a referen-

"Annexations in which one city
wants to take in another are un-
usual," Larcom said, "but this case
is exceptionally unique in that
both cities favor annexation."
Ann Arbor's City Planning Com-
mission has been studying the pro-
posal for several weeks. Although
the commission would not present
an opinion for or against annexa-

with "the proposal to annex East

Heat, Swamped Hotels
To Greet Cadets Today
By RONALD SCHELKOPF
The Black Knights from West Point should cast the only threat-
ening shadows over an otherwise fair and warm Ferry Field today,
according to the weatherman.
A special train-load of senior cadetf will be greeted by southerly,
rather strong breezes when they embark from their train at 10:00
a.m. in Ann Arbor. At 12:35 p.m., they will march to the field to per-
form a special pre-game treat for the fans.
Temperatures are expected to reach the low 80s - ideal for on-
lookers, but stifling to the 22 combatants.
Local hotels reveal that they have been swamped with requests
for reservations. One hotel has been booked solid for the past three
days and started getting requests in September.
Another hostelry exclaims that they "could use a 500-room hotel."
The Army game is "always the biggest," reflected one distraught
hotel man. The Michigan State game attracts more people, though
few stay over, whereas, the cadet game demands accommodations for
both Friday and Saturday nights.
Spare a Cot?
Inn keepers have even been asked to put up people on cots in
rooms or hallways, although it is against their policies to partake
in this sort of practice.

Ike Claims Suez
Crisis Is Passed
Announcement Made To Television
Panel of 'Cross-Section Americans'
WASHINGTON (t)-President Dwight Eisenhower said yesterday
that progress on the Suez Canal dispute has been "most gratifying"
and it looks as though "a very great crisis is behind is."
He made the statement in an opening announcement at an un-
usual television show, in which he was the target of questions from
a friendly, massive television panel made up of citizens described by
the White House as "cross-section Americans." It said all of-the ques-
tioners were supporters of President Eisenhower's second-term bid.
Men of Note
Among those invited to take part in the questioning were John
Roosevelt, son of the late president and a 1952 supporter of Eisen-
hower; Phil Rizzuto, ex-New Yorke
Yankee shortstop, and Mrs. Riz-
