I'M WRITING my first column as Daily Sports Editor, just as you
are probably perusing your first issue of The Daily. This must
indicate a parallel, even if it's only you don't know what to expect
and I don't know what to write. But there's a hole on page six, so
here goes with some columnish comment aimed at explaining our
sports department and inviting you to try out for it:
On behalf of the sports staff, may I be the thirty-fourth person
to welcome you to Michigan. We endeavor to make our sports report-
Ing match the high quality of Michigan athletics. We offer direct
coverage and crusty comment on all Michigan sports events, from
Rose Bowl football to Intramural paddleball.
For example, I had the privilege to cover on the spot last
spring the National Collegiate Hockey Championships at the
Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs. Although local news and
related events take top priority on our sports page, through the
Associated Press wire service we do carry the latest from around
the nation.
The reason for a priority on local copy is this: The Daily simply
cannot com~pete with metropolitan morning papers on the basis of
national sports coverage. Half a page (if we're lucky) of our news-
paper is devoted to sports; it is useless to try to cram into half a
page what The Detroit Free Press, for example, puts into three or
four pages.
Comments Welcomed
WE MUST OFFER what the Free Press cannot-detailed, first-hand
reports of all Michigan athletic doings, including intramurals
and activity at other colleges. At the minimum, results of professional
contests appear regularly in The Daily. And when something big
happens in the world of sport, you may rest assured we carry the
story no matter where it occurred. Into this category fall the World
Series and Stanley Cup playoffs.
"The Latest Deadline In The State" means just what it im-
plies-that The Daily prints late stories ,no other morning paper
in Michigan can print. Our Fairchild photo-engraver and a top-
notch photography staff bring you up-to-the-minute pictures
of athletic action. All-in-all, the sports staff makes a vital con-
tribution to one of the best college newspapers in the United
States.
We like to think you will benefit by reading our pages; we know
we will benefit from any and all comments from our readers. Nothing
sharpens up an I-M reporter like a blast pointing out mistakes in his
work; by the same token, there is no reward like a pat on the back
for a good story, Your criticisms will be gratefully considered.
Sports Staff Beckons
PUTTING OUT A sports page takes manpower, so if you think you
might make a sports writer, trot yourself over as soon as possible"
to find out. An outside activity like newspaper work becomes more
and more valuable as the- years go by. About all you need to fit
into our staff is an interest in athletics. Used to be freshmen couldn't
be in activities until their second semester, but now you can start
at The Daily your first day of classes.
Here's what's in it for you as a member of the sports staff:
Instruction in writing copy, night-desk procedure, and page make.
up; assignment to a beat, where you will cover Michigan sports
events and write news stories and features; and a chance to work 1
up to night editorships and senior editorships (all paying jobs,
by the way).j
Well, space has run out, so congratulations on choosing a truly
great school, and good luck to all of you (to coin a phrase) from
all of us.9

MSC, Purdue,
Illinois Head
Stadium Slate
By IVAN KAYE
Michigan will open its 1952
football campaign at home on
September 27 against the power-
ful Spartans of Michigan State
College.
Michigan State is currently rid-
ing the crest of a sixteen game
winning streak and was consider-
ed by many to be the best team
in the land in 1951. Last year the
Spart-- ..buried Michigan under
a four touchdown avalanche, 25-0.
UP AT East Lansing Coach Big-
gie Munn has twenty-six return-
ing lettermen from which to fash-
ion his 1952 edition of the Green
and White. The main problem will
be the replacing of the graduated
Al Dorow. New linebackers must:
be found, but a telented freshman
team will probably supply the
needed material. The Spartans
will enter Big Ten football com-
petition beginning with the 1953
season.
Michigan has a score to set-
tle with Stanford. The Indians
became the first coast team ever
to beat the Maize and Blue when
they turned in a 23-13 victory
here in Ann Arbor last year.
Stanford went on from the tri-
umph over Michigan to win the
Pacific Coast Conference Cham-
pionship. Prospects arelean for
a repeat however, since Coach
Chuck Taylor has lost twenty-five
lettermen, including Bill McColl
and Gary Kerkorian. The offense
will be built around the running
of fullback Bob Mathias, the 01-
ympic Decathalon champion.
* *i *
THE THIRD opponent this fall
will be the Indiana Hoosiers, who
will be playing their first season
under new coach Bernie Crim-
mins.
The offense will be centered
around the passing of veteran
quarterback Lou D'Achille and
the running of fullback Gene
Gedman.
While no one is booming In-
diana for the conference title,
the Hoosiers are capable of up-
setting any team as their per-
formance last year against Ohio
State indicates. Indiana also came
within a few minutes of upset-
ing heavily favored Michigan

BIGGIE MUNN
. ., another powerhouse?
* * 0,
State in last season's game against
the Spartans.
MICHIGAN will invade the lair
of the Northwestern Wildcats on
October 18 to do battle with the
team which has been tagged by
the pre-season experts as the dark
horse of the conference football
race.
Coach Bob Voights has a core
of twenty-eight lettermen in-
cluding quarterback Bob Bur-
son, fullback Chuck Hren and
end Norm Krakseth.
An indication of how things will
go at Dyche Stadium may be
gleaned from the observation that
Northwestern beat Michigan last
ear and the Wildcats are defin-
itely stronger this season. What
no orne will venture to say at this
date is how much stronger is
Michigan of 1952 than the Wol-
verine squad of a year ago. There-
in lies the outcome.
THE GOLDEN Gophers of Min-
nesota will appear here in Ann
Arbor for the second successive
time under a shift in the home-
and-home schedule between the
two schools. Michigan will jour-
ney to Minneapolis in 1953 and
every odd numbered year there-
after.
..When the two "M's" clash on
October 25 the famed "Little
Brown Jug" will again be up for
grabs.iThe supporters of Ski-U-
Mah view with great alarm the
ten-year hold which the Maize
and Brue has fastened on the stor-
ied crock.
Minnesota will again bring its
one-man-team, Paul Giel into
Michigan Stadium. Giel broke
eight team offense records last

year and smashed the Conference
record for total offense with 1,473
yards. He is the first top-flight
passer the Gophers have had since
Bernie Bierman's brightest days
back in 1940-41.
* , *,
MINNESOTA will be primed for
an upset when they oppose the
Wolverines, and if last year's
game i3 any indication, this game
should be a real thriller.
Michigan will face Illinois on
the first November at the Stad-
ium in the one game which in
largest measure will determine
the outcome of the Conference
season for the Wolverines.
Illinois is the team to beat in
1952. With twenty-one seasoned
veterans returning from last year's
undefeated Rose Bowl Champions,
Coach Ray Eliot's crew is going
to be mighty tough to de-throne.
* * *
DEFENSE was the key to suc-
cess for the Orange and Blue last
season. The Illini held Michigan,
Ohio State, Northwestern and In-
diana scoreless. Wis(*onsin got ten
points and Iowa managed two
tcuchdowns while absorbing a
40-13 drubbing.
Illini linebackers Chuck Boer-
jo, Ellie Popa and Joe Cole were
prime factors in that enviable
defensive record. Tough as it was
to make yardage against Illinois
on the ground, it was much
tougher to pass against such
stalwart halfbacks as Al Bros-
ky, Herb Neathery and Stan
Wallace.
All is not rosy on the Cham-
paign campus however since Coach
Eliot must come up with a suc-
cessor to the graduated All-Amer-
ican Johny Karras. The burden
will probably fall on halfback
Clarence DeMoss, a 178 pound
sophomore who saw some action
last year.
ASIDE FROM DeMoss, the back-
field is set to go with Tommy
O'Connell at quarterback, Pete
Bachouros at left halfback andj

All-America candidate Bill Tate
at fullback.
The big replacement problem
is at the linebackers. However,
with a talented crop of fresh-
men Eliot should be able to fill
these pressing vacancies.
Michigan will get a decided
break in the schedule because
while the Maize and Blue will play
Minnesota the week before the
Illinois contest, the Illini must
tangle with top-contender Purdue.
THE TUSSLE with the Boiler-
makers will undoubtedly take
something out of the defending
champions. Michigan won't have a
picnic against the Gophers, but
Minnesota in 1952 should be a
much weaker team than Stu Hol-
comb's Purdue.
Cornell will follow Illinois in-
to Ann Arbor to give Michigan a
welcome respite from the rigors
of Big Ten competition.
The Ivy-Leaguers were suppos-
ed to roll over and play dead when
the Wolverines invaded Ithaca last
aumumn. The Maize and Blue had
lost to Illinois by a touchdown the
preceeding week, but the high cal-
iber of their play had made them
solid favorites to beat the Big Red.
* * *
CORNELL WAS dead during the
first half, but after the intermis-
sion the Ithacans put on a fur-
ious three-touchdown rally that
swept them to victory.
