Minnesota Threat Looms
AS IT must be on Tuesdays during the football season, thoughts
turn from of the preceding Saturday's performance of the Michi-
gan football team to prospects for the weekend ahead.
After a "breather" that turned out to be not quite a breatherl
last week against Northwestern, the Wolverines cannot expect an
easy time of it this Saturday either. They take on a Minnesota squad
that is a strong contender, along with Michigan, for the Big Ten
championship and the bid to the Rose Bowl.
Present Conference standings show the Gophers in fourth place,
one position above the Wolverines. Coach Murray Warmath's eleven
has two Big Ten victories over Purdue and Illinois, while beingI
held to a scoreless tie in the rain against Northwestern.
You can be sure the Gophers will be fired up for the Homecoming
game this Saturday at the Stadium. A victory for them would put
Michigan in a desperate position in its battle for the top of the Big
- Ten. The Wolverines would have two losses. Minnesota then would
be able to lose a game (probably to its toughest opponent after Mich-
igan -- Michigan State) and still stand ahead of Michigan in the
Concern over the other eligible contender for the Rose Bowl,
undefeated Iowa, wouldberonly slight, because the Hawkeyes have
Michigan, Minnesota and Ohio State on their schedule on succes-
That's a summary of the dreams of Minnesota. But the play
of the Wolverines to date indicates they are quite capable of dealing
with the Gophers.
Saturday's 34-20 victory made it all the more evident that of-
fense has replaced defense as the key to Michigan's gridiron suc-
cess. The Wolverines have a 125-56 point edge over their first, four
opponents as compared with their four-game 1955 record of 96-18.
Sustain Drives.. .
THE difference is even clearer when one recalls that the Michigan
football team of last year made a large share of its points by
capitalizing on opposition mistakes. This year the Wolverines have
repeatedly shown they're capable of the long scoring march.
Reliance on a strong defense has been relaxed somewhat be-
cause Michigan now has the varied and consistently powerful at-
tack it has lacked in recent years.
This is not to say the Wolverines are any weaker on defense; on
the contrary, they have a completely veteran line. But the head-
lines have gone to the offensive stars - Terry Barr, Jim Pace, John
Herrnstein, Ron Kramer and the other backs and ends - who have
produced at least five touchdowns on three of the last four Saturdays..
Injuries may be the major stumbling block for Michigan this
coming Saturday. Although most of the casualties from the North-
western game have :already recovered, Coach Bennie Oosterbaan ex-
pressed concern yesterday over the condition of Barr who is suffering
from a severe charley horse inside his knee.
The prospect of Barrs possibly missing the. Minnesota contest
is very disquieting. Already recognized as one of the best defensive
backs in college football today, he has also become a dependably fast*
and smart runner. His average yardage gained per carry is a team-
leading 6.2 and his passing has been responsible for some of Michi-
gan's longest gains this season.
Gomberg, Cooley Remain
Unbeaten; Williams Upset
QUESTIONABLE STARTER-A top defensive back and Michi-
gan's leading ground gainer, Terry Barr (41) is a questionable
starter in this week's game with Minnesota. He sustained a severe
charley horse in last Saturday's action with Northwestern.

Hinsdale knocked Williams from
the unbeaten ranks with a 6-0 up-
set in Residence Hall "A" football
Wenley followed the pattern by
defeating previously u n b e a t e n
Scott while Heyden scored a mild
upset over Kelsey.
In the biggest surprise of the
day Hinsdale scored on a pass from
Pete Parker to Bob Bolton and
then hung on to gain the victory.
Wenley not to be outdone sur-
prised Scott by getting off to a 7-0
lead in the first half on a touch-
down and extra-point by Dick Le-
may. Scott bounced back early in
the second half on a scoring pass
from Jack Mogk to Don Weise.
Wenley scored again, however,
taking the victory, 13-6, on a
touchdown by Norm Dane.
Heyden's defeat of Kelsey came
on a score in the first half by cap-
tain Jim Parkington. The victory
put Heyden over the .500 mark and

the early minutes of the game.
They rebounded, however, to en-
joy a 7-0 halftime lead on a pass
from Brue Fox to Bill Wheat. A
toss from Fox to Fred Channon
made the extra-point.
McVay, Treder Score
In the second half Fred McVay
and Don Treder scored touchdowns
to insure the victory.
Cooley House remained unbeat-
en with a 20-0 victory over Adams.
Cooley was led by Bruce Conybare
who passed for two scores and an
extra-point and scored the other
seven points on his own.

IT'S FOR REAL! by Chester Field
John C. Nettleton expects to receive his B.S. in chemical engineer-
ing from Villanova University in June 1957. He has served as presi-
dent of the student chapter of A.I.Ch.E., and as secretary of Phi
Kappa Phi fraternity. John is now wondering about the pros and
cons of advanced study in his field.

Roberti. Such, M.S., Ch.E., came to the Engineering Devel-
opment Section of Du Pont's Grasselli Research Division from
the University of Louisville four years ago. Since then, he has
engaged in many kinds of chemical engineering work, from pilot-
plant operation to evaluation of the potential of proposed re-
search programs. Within the last year, Bob has taken the re-
sponsibility of procuring B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. technical gradu-
ates in all phases of chemistry and chemical engineering for the
Grasselli Research Division.

But I've noticed this at Du Pont. Once a man lands a
job in his chosen field and actually begins to work, his
subsequent advancement depends more on demonstrated
ability than on college degrees. That's true throughout
the entire company-in scientific work, administration,
or what not.
So an advanced degree is not a royal road to anything
at Du Pont, John. But when coupled with proven abili-
ties, it is unquestionably helpful to a man in research and
development work. It often gets him off to a faster start.
