Wolverines Seek First Conference

Northwestern Noted in Past
To Cause Michigan Trouble


Victory Today
' Big Ten Teams Face Stiff
Tests; MSU, Irish To Meet

(Continued from Page 1)
time, last Saturday, will again be
in the left halfback slot when
the scoreboard clock starts mark-
ing time today.
Coach Ben Oosterbaan will start
the same eleven men who began{
the game against Army: Pace, Jim
Van Pelt, John Herrnstein and
Barr in the backfield, and Kramer,
Jim Orwig, Dick Hill, Mike Rotun-
no, Mary Nyren, Al Sigman and'
Captain Tom Maentz in the line.
sMeKeiver Chief NU Threat
Northwestern's triple - threat
back, flashy Bob McKeiver, is
Parseghian's chief offensive threat.
To Watch
46-Bob McKiever ... halfback
41-Wilmer Fowler ...halfback
21-Dale Plenta ... quarterback
57-Ted Ringer .......center
MeKeiver, a 162-lb. left halfback,
leads the Wildcats in rushing,
scoring, punting and returns of
Bill Fowler, McKeiver's running
mate, is another back who may
put Michigan's defense through a
thorough test. Fowler, one pound
lighter than MeKeiver, compares
in speed to Michigan's Pace, ac-
cording to scouting reports.
Either Dale Pienta or Jack Ellis
will handle the signal-calling
chores for the visitors. Pienta fea-
tures fine defensive ability and an
able throwing arm. Ellis is rated
a better-than-adequate passer.
Charley Jerasa, at fullback, rounds
out the backfield.
Ringer A Standout
Captain Ted Ringer, Northwest-
ern's center and linebacker, is the

visitors' defensive bulwark. He is
a scrappy 198-pounder.
O o s t e r b a a n isn't regarding
Northwestern lightly, although his
team figures to, win by more than
two touchdowns. Michigan has
outscored the Wildcats by a com-
posite of only 25 points during
the past three years, but has won
all three times.
Last year, Northwestern ex-
tended the Wolverines all the way
before bowing, 14-2.
Parseghian, in his first year as
coach of the Wildcats; isn't too
optimistic about today's tussle. He
inherited a squad which didn't
win a game all last season, an
managed to tie one.
He hopes to build up the foot-
ball fortunes at Evanston, but
frankly admitted yesterday that
"it may take quite a few years be-
fore we can hold our own in the
Big Ten."
Northwestern Interest Low
"The interest in football at
Northwestern is low," continued
the 33-year-old coach. "We have
only 39 players on the squad. That
means that only one man is left
off the 38-man traveling squad."
Parseghian has produced a spir-
ited unit in his first year at the
helm, but it may take more than
spirit to defeat the Wolverines in
their own back' yard today.

GETTING READY-Wildcat captain Ted Ringer and quarterback
Dale Pienta practice in preparation for today's encounter. Under
its new head coach, Ara Parseghian, Northwestern is no longer
the doormat of the Conference.

COMPLETE - Jim Maddock is on the receiving end of an aerial
thrown by Jim Pace in last year's game against Northwestern
which the Wolverines won, 14-2. A Wildcat defender vainly at-
tempts to stop the play.
Former Michigan Stars
Now Play Pro Football

Unbeaten Michigan State meets
a twice beaten Notre Dame this
afternoon, but despite the records
it will be a real tussle for the Spar-
Notre Dame, with but a single
win in three games this year, is a
team never to be underestimated
when it comes to football. The
Spartans' coach, Duffy Daugherty
realizes this and his team has
spent the week in serious prepara-
tion for the contest.
The Spartan squad is without
injury, except for right end Dave
Weak Line
Notre Dame has a good back
field, but the line is somewhat
weak. The line is composed of
Sophomores and their lack of ex-
perience has been a liability to an
otherwise good team. '
In all there are three Big Ten
conference games and four non-
conference tilts.
The three conference games,
aside from the Michigan-North-
western game, find Purdue at Wis-
consin and Illinois at Minnesota.
Both Illinois and Minnesota
have inexperienced teams, but
Minnesota has been plagued by
injuries while the Illini have been
free of them.
Illinois has a 1-2 record, one of
the losses being suffered in last
week's game with Ohio State.
The Illinois backfield is a very
fast one, the fastest one the Goph-
ers have met this year and will
give their line a real test.
Mitchell to Start
Illinois halfback Bobby Mitchell
will be starting for the first time
this season. Mitchell set a Big Ten
record for average ground gaining
last year. He suffered a knee in-
jury early in the season which
sidelined him except when he was
used as a substitute in the Ohio
State game.
The other conference game fea-
tures Purdue and Wisconsin. Len-
ny Dawson, one of the best passing"
quarterbacks in the country will
lead the Boilermakers as they seek
their third win of the season.
Last week Purdue dropped Notre
Dame, 28-14, despite the fact that
they were seven point underdogs.

Wisconsin has won one game
and lost two this season and Pur-
due has won two while losing one.
Ohio State, Big Ten leader,
hosts Penn State, in a non-confer-
ence game. The powerful Buckeye
team has won all its three games
this season. Rated fifth in the AP
poll, the Buckeyes have one of
the most powerful offensive teams
in the country.
Hoosiers Winless
Indiana meets Nebraska in an-
other non-conference game today.
The Hoosiers have had a rough
season, losing three games. Their
three opponents have scored over
.100 points while the Hoosiers have
scored only 12.
The Nebraska team has exhi-
bited a good running offense this
I-D Cards:
Because of the large number
of student tickets that have
been transferred and sold; es-
pecially at the Michigan State
and Army games, the Athletic
Administration will require the
following for today's game
against Northwestern:
1. All students will kindly
enter through the student gates.
2. Students must have their
I-D cards together with their
football tickets. In the case of
spouse tickets, the blue athletic
card must be presented.
year and also has good passing
possibilities. Their record for the
season is 2-2.
The University of Hawaii travels
all the way to Iowa in the other
non-conference game. The Hawai-
ian teap, called the Rainbows,
have traveled 4,500 miles by air-
plane for the contest.
Iowa has won all of its three
games this season as have the
Rainbows. Coach Forest Evashev-
ski has not scouted the Rainbows
but they are reported to have :a
small but fast backfield and a very
big line. The line averages 211
pounds, with two. of the linemen
weighing 245 pounds.
Iowa is a 49 point favorite.

beenra legendary football figure
for the last 15 years. This will be
his 11th year in pro ball but even
at the age of 33 Hirsch remains a
constant threat for the Los An-
geles Rams.
Hirsch, a member of the 1943
Michigan squad, is considered to be
one of tie top pass receivers in
pro football and still holds sev-
eral records in the NFL.

Playing under ideal weather
conditions for football, a combin-
ation of independent and socialE
fraternity touch football teams
clashed yesterday afternoon at'
Ferry Field in their respective I-M
touch football leagues.
Seldom Seen Kids, the defend-'
lng champions of the Independent
League, met with little trouble as
they trounced the Pill Pushers,
From the start of the game there
seehed little doubt as to which
team would emerge victorious.
Moby Benedict, last year's captain
of the Michigan baseball team, in-
tercepted a pass early in the game
and ran it back 40 yards for the
Kidds' first touchdown. The extra
point made it 7-0.
Double Pass Pays Off
Minutes later, a well-executed
double pass play payed off for the
Kid's second score. Quarterback
Jack Watson shoveled a behind-
the-line pass to Benedict, who then
threw a long pass to Doug Dou-
wecke who was all alone in the
end zone.
Before the half ended, the Sel-
dom Seen Kids scored once more.
Watson clicked again to Don Pol-
oskey and the score was 20-0 at
the half.
The second half saw both teams
score one touchdown apiece, but
the Pill Pushers never threatened.
In what was probably the hard-
est fought ball game of the day,
Phi Sigma Delta squeezed out a
narrow victory over Beta Theta
Pi, 7-6, in the social fraternity "A"
Scores Early
In the opening minutes of the
game, Phi Sig moved the ball down
close to the Beta goal line. Then,
Warren Singer scurried across the
goal line for the touchdown. Using
a buttonhook pass play, Phi Sig
scored the extra point that turned
out to be the margin of victory.
Hard, clean blocking and loud,
boisterous shouts from the side-
lines were featured throughout the
entire game. Phi Sig held its 7-0
lead until there were only two min-
utes left in the game.
At this point, Beta quarterback
Tom Brandt hit Tom Cleveland

with a long pass just across the
goal line to.make the score, 7-6.
Brandt attempted a 'pass for the
extra point which went incomplete
and that was the ball game.
In other Independent action, the
Eagle Hawkers defeated the Old
Married Men, 7-2. Entering the
game both teams were undefeated.
The Old Married Men led at the
half, 2-0, on the strength of a
fumble in their opponent's end
But in the second half the Eagle
Hawkers completed a pass and the
extra point to mike the score, 7-2.
This game was part of the North
Campus program of intramural
Air Force ROTC Wins
In another game which matched
two undefeated teams, the Air
Force ROTC defeated the Fisher-
ies, 13-0. Both touchdowns came
in the first half and both were
scored in the identical manner.
Stan Bohinc threw to Bill Chans-
ler for the deciding scores.
The Evans Scholars continued
on their winning ways by scoring
a 6-0 win over the All-Canadians.
Scholars' quarterback, Bob Kent,
chucked a pass to Matt Shadeck
for the only score of the game..
The Double A's remained tied
with the Evans Scholars as they
were awarded a forfeit victory
over the Packards.
Extra Point Decisive
The third game of the day, de-
cided by one point, saw Gomberg's
Older Element eke out a narrow
20-19 win over Michigan Christ-
ian Fellbwship. For Gomberg, Tom
Shinning scored 13 of their 20
points, and Jim McClurg added the
other seven.
MCF also had a 13-point man.
John Lofgren received two passes
from Bob Somer, and Don Muir
added the other six points. But it
was just not enough to top the
Gomberg Older Element.
In an excellent defensive game,
the Tiger Cats, in overtime, de-
feated the Jenkins Jockeys, 1-0.
Other action saw the Weslyians
defeat Owen Co-op, 2-0; Newman
Club subdue Bacteriology, 8-0; and
CMS Jr's, victorious over Michigan
Co-op, 20-0.

ington Senators decided yesterday
to stay in Washington.
Turning down bids from four
cities for its American League
baseball franchise, the Senators'
board of directors voted unani-
mously to remain here.
Decision A Surprise
The decision came as somewhat
of a surprise to baseball followers
here. All outward indications dur-
ing the past few weeks were that
Calvin Griffith, Washington club
president, wanted to move, with
Los Angeles apparently his choice.
Other Offers
Louisville, San Francisco and
Minneapolis also put in offers for
the Senators.

From the first rumors of a pos-
sible move, vigorous opposition was
expressed by H. Gabriel Murphy,
the largest single stockholder.
Griffith, surrounded by the four
other members of the board talked
with reporters after the announce-
No Mention of Promises
Ha would not be pinned down to
stating what, if anything, he had
been promised by Washington in-
terests, other than that they would
support the club.
Washington, finishing deep in
the second division, has had less
attendance than any other major
league club the last two years.

There are some who dispute
the fact that President Chester
A. Arthur was the first man to
wear the Oxford Button-Down
shirt. They are right, he wasn't.
Van Heusen has discovered
that its originator was actually
Arthur A. Chester, who, oddly
enough, used the button not to
keep his collar down, but to
keep his shirt up. Whatever its
purpose, the Oxford Button-
Down (or Button-Up) shirt
wowed Mr. Chester's crowd
on sight and has been a staple
of fine wardrobes ever since.
Today, Van Heusen's Oxford
Button-Down is still in the
authentic Chesterian tradition

... but with a wonderful dif-
ference. The cloth, woven of
fine long-staple cotton, is as
soft as a co-ed's smile, yet
exceptionally long-wearing.
Superbly tailored in the smart
Van Heusen way, this Oxford
Button-Down enhances your
looks, whether you're involved
in class, tugs of war or mid-
night brawls. $5.00.
