This is the seventh in a series of nine articles on the football prospects of
Michigan's scheduled 1946 opponents.
MINNESQTA is a magical name. A brief whisper of the Golden Gophers
is enough to send a chill down the spine of every football coach.
Last year Coach Bernie Bierman, fresh from a couple of seasons
with the Marines, came back to Minneapolis only to experience a little
war in his own back yard. Along about mid-season the Golden
Gophers suffered quite a relapse.
As a result, the old maestro of the pile-driving power machines must
begin rebuilding his gridiron organization from the very foundations.
The trouble that wracked Bierman's squad in 1945 had much of its
roots in the line, and it is natural that he should field an almost com-
pletely revamped front wall in September. While the whole situation
from flank to flank is unpredictable, the greatest weakness seems to be
around the ends themselves. So far only one good prospect has come
to light, Larry Halenkamp, who came to Minnesota from Northwestern
and the Navy.
AFTER THE ENDS, the greatest uncertainty concerns candidates for
tackle. Bill Carroll, a 220-pound chunk of muscle, is currently leading
a group of several promising frosh giants in the scramble for first crack
at the position.
The guards are a little more plentiful. Dale Pulver, who played
for North Carolina Pre-Flight during his service stint, is returning to
his native haunts. Back also is Laron lann, a letterman from last
season's campaign. Bolstering these two will be a crop of several
ambitious fledglings who have yet to prove their mettle.
Center appears to be the least of the worries. Warren Beson is on hand
again; he returned last year just in time to earn a letter. In addition,
a 190-pound freshmianl, Steve Silianoff, attracted special attention in
spring practice.
Bierman has the makings of an excellent backfield. While it won't
be the plunging mastodon which the Gopher was wont to produce in
the old days, it will be fast and shifty. Wayne "Red" Williams is back
from 1945. Another '45 half returning is Tom Cates, a scat-runner
who is even speedier than Williams. Quarterback Merlin Kispert, an
outstanding blocker, completes the trio back from last season.
VETERANS will ,be prominent at Minnesota as every place else. Two
good quarters in Bob Garnaas and Bob Sandberg, who played in 1942
are being counted on, while halfbacks Bob Collison, Joe Silovitch, and
Ken Parent are back. Bierman is also smiling over the batch of first-
year men who shone in spring drills."*Glen Pullens, 165-pound Negro
half and a state prep dash champion, was particularly outstanding as a
break-away runner. Ken Beiersdorf will furnish a lot of punch from
A good backfield and a questionable line-that's Minnesota as it
stands now. BUT-don't sell the Golden Gophers short-Minnesota is a
magical name.

Tigers Whip Chisox
DETROIT, Aug. 16 - Bunching
three of their six hits for a pair of
runs in the second inning, the De-
troit Tigers downed the Chicago

(Fire) Trucks scattered a half dozen
ChicagQ safeties for his 13th pitch-
ing victory of the year.

Cullenbine, Skeeter Webb's fly and
Catcher Paul Richards' double gave

Bosox Stop Yankees
BOSTON, Aug. 16-- Southpaw
Mickey Harris gained his 15th tri-
umph of the season today by hurling
the American League-leading Boston
Red Sox to a 4-1 eight hit victory
over the New York Yankees.
Harris and the Yanks' Spud
Chandler dueled on even terms until
the fourth inning, when the Sox
pushed a run home to break a score-
less deadlock. The Carmine Hose
sewed up the game in the next frame
by scoring twice on successive singles
by Johnny Pesky, Ted Williams, Bob-
by Doerr and Rudy York.b
Dodgers Bow to Phillies
BROOKLYN, Aug. 16-(/P)-South-
paw Oscar Judd set the National
League pace-setting Brooklyn Dod-
gers down on four hits today as he
pitched the Philadelphia Phillies to
a. 4-2 triumph. It was Philadelphia's
first victory over the Dodgers at
Ebbets Field this season.

Chemistry Wins in I-M Softball

The Chemistry Department's Stan
Adams and Howie Palmer of Vets
Housing hooked up yesterday in a
brilliant pitching duel that was de-
cided in favor of the Chem boys in
the first inning, 1-0, to give them
the I-M softball crown.
Although Palmer was the stingier
with base hits, allowing only three
to seven off Adams, Chemistry
bunched a pair m the first inning
to push across the only score of the
Catcher Seward Beacom and first
sacker George Killick paired their
hits to win the ball game. Don Kahn,
right fielder, slapped out a single in
the fourth to, complete the hitting
for Chemistry.
Vets Housing had potential ral-
lies going in the first, fourth, fifth
and sixth innings, but Adams was
too tough with men on the bases
and he stopped each rally before
any damage could be done.
The contest marked the end of the
summer session softball season and
left the Chemistry Department as
undisputed campus champions.The
team completed play in the Inde-
pendent league without losing a sin-
gle game and then was the lone
survivor in the elimination tourney,
winning three hard fought battles,
defeating Rumsey, 8-5, Prescott, 4-2,
and the final from Vets Housing.

WGRB Representatives
Describe Acting Skills
Television was described as a "new
art" requiring special techniques of
acting and producing by experts in
a symposium on television before the
annual Speech Conference of the
They were G. Emerson Markham
and Miss Helen T. Rhodes, both of
television station WGRB, in Schen-
ectady, N.Y., and Prof. Lewis Hol-
land, of the University's electrical
engineering department.
"Television programs call for a
combination of the skills of actors
on radio, stage, and screen," Miss
Rhodes explained. "Actually, tele-
vision requires more skill than the
others, because the televisionactor
is working on a stage, speaking into
a microphone, and also acting be-
fore a camera!"
Commercial concerns are taking
increasing interest in television, and
already many programs have com-
mercial sponsors-whose "plugs" re-
quire as much skill in production as
do the shows, it was revealed.
Biggest headache for television
managers is the question of what the
public wants and expects from this
new form of entertainment, Mark-
ham admitted. Television will not be
a rival for the corner movie, but it
can bring into the home sports con-
tests and special news events as well
as dramatic shows and music, he
Party Planned

lowing new officers: Mrs. Brooks

president; Mrs. Franklin Powers, sec-
retary; and Mrs. Leroy Redfern,
Plans for extension courses and
sewing classes to be held at Willow
Village are being worked out with
the University Extension Service and
with the Agricultural Extension Di-
vision of Washtenaw County.
West ,Court is due to be closed on
August 23rd and will be reopened on
Septenber 9th.

Visible Speech Enables
Deaf to Speak Normally
"Visible speech" offers the best
method yet developed for teaching
the deaf to speak normally and also
may be used to correct speech diffi-
culties or defects, Dr. George Kopp,
of the Bell Telephone Laboratories,
New York City, said yesterday.
Dr. Kopp discussed the method by
which spoken words are converted
into visible patterns at the afternoon
session of the University of Michigan
Speech Conference. In September
this research work will be transferred
from the Bell Laboratory to the Uni-
versity campus, where Dr. Kopp, as
associate professor of speech and re-
searchassociate in the Speech Clinic,
will continue to direct it.
"Visible speech" is the series of
line patterns which sounds make
upon a paper-covered druni when
speech is converted into an electrical
impulse, as it is over a telephone.
Each vowel and consonant sound
makes a distinct pattern, and these
patterns may be read just as written
words and letters are read, Dr. Kopp
