12 , Sept. 23, 1949 City«elie, M.ion'CHy.ia. Michigan State Well Set at All Positions East Lansing, Mich., (U.R)—Froz- en out of the Western conference football wars until 1953, Michigan State will train its sights on independent rivals this fall. The Spartans achieved Big Ten membership last spring but found themselves still on the outside with conference football schedules arranged 4 years in advance. Coach Clarence Munn, former Minnesota All-American guard, will throw a well-seasoned squad into the 1949 campaign against such formidables as Notre Dame, Penn State and Michigan. 4 Key Players Gone . Some 30 lettermen are on the squad, but Munn experienced some losses through graduation. He faces a big problem in replacing Tailback. George Guerre, one of the Spartans' brightest stars for 3 years; He must also come up with suitable replacements for Ends Warren Huey and Ed Sobczak, and Center Bob McCurry. Probable successors already have been picked for all 4 positions, however, and Munn isn't too worried on that count Aside from open holes at left end, center and one tackle, his veteran line remains intact. Guards Don Mason and Ed Bagdon compare with the best in the country. Tackle Pete Fusi is a 2-year veteran with a commendable record. Right End Hank Minarik earned a starting assignment as a sophomore last fall. Reserve - strength on the line, though, is relatively untested and injuries to any of the regulars would be a serious blow. Optimistic Outlook With a squad generously sprinkled with monogram winners and seniors, pre-season forecasts for the Spartans are legitimately optimistic. Guerre's loss is tempered by the presence of 7 halfbacks currently fighting to take his place. Most promising of the lot are Bud Crane, Horace Smith and Jesse Thomas. At right half Lynn Chandnois is ATTENTION Trap Shooters Ham, Bacon, Sausage Shoot SUNDAY, SEPT. 25 8 a. m. till DARK 2 miles East on Highway 16 ALBERT LEA, MINN. Sponsored by ALBERT LEA ROD AND GUN CLUB, INC. headed for the best season of his career, and some critics already are citing him as a possible All America. Since Munn took over in 1947. he has coached Michigan State to 13 wins against 4 losses and 2 ties. Defeats were twice by Michigan, and once by Notre Dame and Kentucky.

SAMS WINS OSAGE GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP Osage —Sunny Brae golf champion this year is Joseph B. Sams, who defeated Walt McCoy in the seminfinals and Rex Moore in the finals. Mrs. Linton-Arsers won the . a d i e s' championship defeating Mrs. Karl Jorde in the semifinals and Mrs. Loyd Koch, St. Ansgar, in the finals. , Pennsylvania's Big 4 Teams Well Loaded By HERB ALTSCHULL AP Newsfeatures Philadelphia — Pennsylvania'* Big Four are going to cause a lot of trouble in the coming football campaign. That Big Four is made up of 3 perennial topnotchers, Penn Penn State and Villanova, and one that hasn't been around for a long time—the Pitt Panthers. Penn State, which lost only once last year—to Pitt—and not at all the year before, rates well up among the nation's powerhouses. So does Villanova under a new coaching staff headed by Big Jim Leonard, one time pilot of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Penn Less Strong: Penn has lost a lot of manpower and does not appear as strong as a year ago. But the Rec and Blue never can be counted out. In all, 55 colleges are fielding teams in Pennsylvania this year. Lafayette, with Clipper Smith the new coach, has its strongest team in years and may win its first Middle Three crown in a long time. Fullback Gordon Fleming is .the Lafayette man-to- watch. Muhlenberg, Lehigh, Temple and Washington and Jefferson are thin in talent and have little to offer except for W. & J.'s brilliant fullback, Dan Towler, the nation's number 2 scorer a year ago. Carnegie Tech, which won its first game in 7 years last season, may win several more. Eddie Baker, the Skibos' new coach, will surprise a lot of foes, but Joe Bedenk Penn Stale George Munger Penn Tech doesn't play first-line opposition. As for Duquesne, the Dukes play too rugged a schedule to win more than a handful of games. All Veteran Team Pitt, however-; has everything. There's an all-veteran team headed by a backfield quartet that should be as good as any in the east. , Coach Mike Milligan counts 4 first rate passing threats in Bobby Lee, Lou Cecconi, Jimmy Joe Robinson and Carl De Pasqua. But he's sticking with the Suther- if I FOR COMPLETE COAST-TO-COAST FOOTBALL NEWS MACHINE GUN PICTURES DIAGRAMMED PICTURES W1REPHOTO PICTURES HOWITZER PICTURES 10 PAGES NEXT SUNDAY THESE BIG GAMES IOWA vs UCLA IOWA STATE vs ILLINOIS NOTRE DAME vs INDIANA MICHIGAN vs MICHIGAN STATE PURDUE vs NORTHWESTERN WISCONSIN vs MARQUETTE Reach for the Peach Every Sunday in the k *^ •« ORDER NOW!

Don't be surprised, though, if Pitt comes up with some fancy razzle-dazzle Milligan will need it for the schedule includes Northwestern Ohio State, Minnesota, Penn anc Penn State. Good Front Wall At Penn State, new coach Joe Bedenk is alarmed about an apparent weakness at tailback and wingback in his single wing attack. Bedenk has Fran Rogel at fullback, possibly the best line smasher in the country. And he has a forward wall that shoulc be able to throw back almos' anything that comes its way. Villanova, Harbor bowl victor over Nevada, is counting on winning a lot of. ball games. The Wildcats have a solid "first string combination but' are none too strong on reserves. Leonard admits that if his sophs come through, his Wildcats may be the surprise team of the land. Key men in the Wildcat attack are passing star Steve Romanik and runners Joe Rogers, Ralph Pasquariello and Pete D'Alonzo But much of Villanova's success hinges on Al Schmid who has been converted from a halfback to an offensive end. Schmid, a first rate punter, shifts into the backfieJd on defense. To Miss Bednarik Penn's prospects are the leanest in years. Gone are Chuck Bednarik and his rugged playmates on the line. Still around, though, are such linemen as Berm'e Lemonick, All-America guard candidate, and tackle Don De Torre and end Lou Roberts. Bob Deuber returns to tailback after missing a year due to injuries. Bob is heavier and faster than ever, and should be one of the nation's better backs. So should Ray Dooney, the hard- plunging fullback who almost knocked over Army single handed a year ago. FRAN ROGEL, —Penn State Smasher Philadelphia Eagles Beat Bulldogs 7-0 in Driving Rain New York, (U.R)—The Philadelphia Eagles, defending champions of the National football league, indicated Friday they were ready to lick anybody in sight—including the weatherman. The Eagles, who won the N.F.L. championship by defeating the Chicago Cardinals in a blinding snow storm last fail, opened defense of their title Thursday night by dumping the New York Bulldogs 7-0 in a,driving rain at the Polo Grounds. The Eagles lone score came on a 23-yard run by Shifty Bosh Pritchard in the first period. Bowling K. OF C. BOWLING Won 1st 2nd R. C. Cola ... 3 740 098 Prescrlp. Shop 0 707 GSO M. Thomas 191; SIR.
