by JOE WALSH, Sports Editor

The 15th Annual College All-
Star football game at Soldier's
Field, Chicago, on August 20 is
shaping up as a Michigan-Notre
Dame combination against Jimmy
Conzelman's Cardinals.
To this writing, 14 Notre
Daners and 10 Wolverines have
been invited to participate in
Arch Ward's pigskin extravaganza.
Leading the Irish will be T-magi-
cian, Johnny Lujack, while Toledo
Bob Chappuis will head the Wol-

South Bend institution, who will
direct the All-Stars for the sec-
ond time in a row, has revealed
that he has a double-barreled of-
fense to throw at the Cards.
He plans on using Lujack, Bobby
Layne of Texas, and Bob Living-
stone and Floyd Simmons, both of
Notre Dame, in one backfield op-
erating out of the T. He also plans
to use a single-wing attack using
the men of Michigan.
All in all, it shapes up as a very
interesting evening of entertain-
ment.

WORDS YOU COULD EAT,
DEPT.
When quizzed last year about
his chances in competition with
Jack Kramer, (then an amateur)
cocky Bobby Riggs, World's Pro-
fessional Singles Champion at that
time replied, "I can beat Jack
Kramer on grass, on clay, on ce-
ment, or indoors. I can beat him
in the daylight or under the flood-
lights. I can beat him in one
match, and I can beat him in a
series of matches. I can beat him
for fun and I can beat him for
money. I can beat him twice on
Sunday, especially if I get paid
for it."
You don't say?

Jack Weisenburger, fullback on
Michigan's 1947 Big Nine cham-
pionship squad was purchased by
the Boston Braves of the National
League for possible use as utility
infielder. However, when Connie
Mack of the A's fired 37-year old
Nelson Potter, relief hurler, the
Braves picked up the ex-Brownie.
As a result, Weisenburger was op-
tioned to the Beantowner's Paw-
tucket farm club in the class B
New England League. We should
be hearing more from the Wolver-
ine spin-master.
We would suggest that all stu-
dents take a good look at the op-
portunities offered by the biggest
I-M summer program ever of-
fered. Details may be found on the
sport page in today's Daily.
