In its second to last practice
before the game with Minnesota,
the Michigan football squad was
forced indoors yesterday by an
all-day driving rain.
Only at intermediate periods did
players emerge outside to the soggy
fields where there was more room
for them to practice pass defense.
But throughout the afternoon,
units continued to run through a
variety of plays in the cramped
confines of Yost Field House.
On the faces of most of the play-
ers one could notice the expres-
sions of a strong determination in

Gophers of Minnesota.
Bowers, Prahst Ailing
With only two days remaining
before Saturday's clash, the physi-
cal condition of the team takes on
added iimportance. Generally the
team is in good condition, but
Dave Bowers and Gary Prahst are
ailing slightly. However, both of
them are sure to see action Satur-
day.
John Herrnstein is still hobbling
around and will not play. Another
doubtful starter is right halfback
Mike Shatusky who is still both-
erefi by his back injury. It is not
known whether he will even make
the trip to Minneapolis. '
Myers To Start
With Shatusky out, it pushes
into prominence a sophomore from
Evanston, Ill., Brad Myers.
Myers looked good last fall on
Wally Weber's freshman squad.
However, he was somewhat, of a
disappointment during spring
Purdue Star
Takes A.P.
Grid Honror
By The Associated Press
A couple of sophomore guards,
Fred Brandel of Purdue and Rod-
ney Breedlove of Maryland, waged
a spirited duel of ballots for Line-
man of-the Week honors before the
nod went yesterday to Brandel.
Brandel won the weekly Associ-
ated Press poll of sportswriters
and broadcasters for* his key play
in Purdue's stunning 20-13 upset
of Michigan State, then ranked as
the country's No. 1 team.
Recovers MSU Fumble
A 19-year-old 200-pounder from
Hamilton, Ohio, Brandel recovered
an MSU fumble on the Spartan
19 in the second quarter that
paved the way for Purdue's tying
touchdown at 7-7.
It was the turning point of the
game, Purdue Coach Jack Mollen-
kopf said afterwards. "After that
we knew we had them."
Stars before Queen
Breedlove, another 19-year-old
youth, was a standout as Maryland
upset North Carolina 21-7 before

tain.

practice until the final Intra-squad
game.
When this season began, Myers
was rated evenly with Fred Julian
at the right half position, behind
Shatusky. But as the season pro-
gressed Myers moved up to the
second team.
Touchdown Nullified
He got his big opportunity last
Saturday against Northwestern
when Shatusky was sidelined most
of the game. Myers scored the first
Wolverine touchdown of the con-
test, only to have it nullified by an
offside penalty.
The blond Evanston youth has
also blossomed into quite a pass
receiver. After the first three games
this season Myers had grabbed off
three tosses, good for 51 yards. In
the Northwestern game he.made a
spectacular catch on a pass thrown
by his former high school team-
mate, Stan Noskjn.
Boasts Speed, Power
In addition, Myers is a fast run-
ner with ability to either drive
through the line or break to the
outside. He can also punt as he.
has done twice this season, com-
piling an average of 43.0,per try.
And so when Saturday rolls
around the fans in Minnesota's
stadium will see a comparative
newcomer lining up for the Wol-
verines at thet right halfback slot.
But if predictions come true, great
things are in store for this blond
sophomore from Evanston.

and a fast starter when handed the pigskin, right halfback Brad
Myers has been a pleasant surprise to the Michigan coaching staff.
Piston' 3ow to Celtics
In Motor City's Opener

1

Professional basketball returned
to Detroit for the first time since
1947, with the home town Pistons
bowing to the defending world
champion Boston Celtics 105-95
in the second game of a double
header.
A crowd of 10,965 fans showed
up to watch the Celtics win their
second game in as many tries. In
the first game New York handed
St. Louis its second defeat of the
young season, 112-95.
The victorious Celtics were led
by their giant center Bill Russell
who scored 15 points and Bill
Sharman who was high scorer in
the game with 24. Russell's main
value however was his tremendous
defensive play as he completely
controlled the backboards.
Yardley Leads Pistons
The .Pistons were led in the
losing cause by George Yardley
with 22 and 7' Walter Dukes who
banged In 19 points. The Pistons'
chances for victory were shattered
when Dukes and Yardley both
fouled out within moments of each
other in the fourth quarter.
Boston then went on to sow up
the game with basket after basket.
The Celtics sunk 36-92 from the
floor and 33-47 from the foul line
while the- losers were respectively
33-96 and 28-41.

The high humidity in Detroit's
Olympia caused the ice under the
floor to melt and the condensation
made the court slippery, which
hurt both teams in fast breaks.

CHICAGO (IP)-Although knock-
ed from their top national football
ranking by Purdue, Michigan
State's Spartans continue to lead
the Big Ten both on offense and
defense.
Official league statistics Wednes-
day disclosed that although Ohio
State is the top scoring team with
a 38.5-point average, Michigan
State holds a wide margin in yard-
age with a 446.6 average against
391.5 for the Buckeyes and 392.5
for Iowa.
Defensively, the Spartans have
yielded an average of 185 per game
in three league contests, allowing
only 3.3 yards per play from scrim-
mage.

CAPER. ANYONE?

I

My name is Cornell Jackson;
private eye. Two days ago I
was sitting in my office dic-
tating, when suddenly a tall
blonde passed my window. I
knew she was tall because my
office is on the tenth floor.
"Hello," she said, "I need
help, Rutgers."
"The name's Cornell."
"Yes. I'm worried about my
husband. Every night he stays
out till six in the morning. He
comes home twith his hair
mussed, lipstick all over his
face. What's up?"
"The butler did it."
"Oh come, come, Yale." -
"Cornell, dearie."
"Yes. I think my husband
Is unfaithful."
I exercised my think-tank,
"The butler did it." I blurted.
"Look, Oklahoma Aggies-
tell me what to do?"

"Find out the secret of his
success with the femmes-then
proceed from there. What
brand of shirts does he wear?"
"Van Heusen."
"What brand of underwear
and pajamas?"
"Van Heusen."
I threw up my hands-and
watched them loft lazily up
to the ceiling. "Babe," I said,
"you can't fight Van Heusen.
There's only one thing you
can do. Marry the butler!".
Moral? No ladies worth their
salt can resist Van Heusen
merchandise. If you want to be
popular . .. if you want to
walk down the street and have
people say, "There goes Jim,
he's had more girls on his lap
than napkins," here's what to
do. First change your name
to Jim-then buy Van Heusen
merchandise. You can't nliss.
