FOOTBALL SQUAD SHOWS ADVANCE
IN cASE GAME, DRILLS FO M !IC

Wieman and Gunther Back in Uniforms
For Light Practice; Nelsch
Still Out
S5 CANDIDATES REMAIN ON
VARSITY SQUAD AFTER CUT
Michigan's football team came out of
the Case game in good shape. Aside
from minor Jolts received by Dunne
and Steketee, there were no mishaps
to the rest of the squad. Coach Yost
was satisfied with the performance
of the backfield but not with his line.
It is to be this branch of his team
that he will point most of his efforts
in the weeks to come before the Con-
ference games.
All in all, the line showed an im-
provement over the previous week.
It charged better, fought harder, and
played together in better shape. It
did not compare with the performance
of the backfield, however. Michigan's
attack was essentially around the
the ends fromnthe fake kick formation.
For this reason the line was not called
upon to open up holes in the opposing
wall and its ability in this respect
remains untested. Few line plunges
were called for except under the goal
posts. Here touchdowns were scored
but it is hard to say how far the line
was effective in opening up the way.
With Dunne and Vick, there is the
nucleus of a forward' wall. Green
material is being worked to the limit
in the search for the strongest possi-
ble line combination.I
No Opposition Yet
As yet, the team has not bumped into1
opposition'which has been able to give
4t any kind of a severe test. It has
not been forced to extend itself either
offensively or defensively. Against
Mt. Union and Case it held, but the
attack was not at all powerful. The
games to eome have yet to test the
promising Varsity squad.
Saturday's game again showed a
good backfield. Everyone of the men
behindthe line skirtedathe ends at
will. Little plunging was called for
except in the case of Usher who found
little difficulty in hitting the line for
three to five yards.hStrangely enough,
th.e quarterbacks have never called
upon Ed to run the ends. His show-
ing has therefore not been as spectac-
ular as his teammates in the backfield.
Usher should also be given a chance to
run the ends from the kick formation.
The running and blocking of the backs
was good. Kipke left little to be de-
sired. Stek again starred for the time
that he was in. The race for the quar-
terback position is becoming more in-
teresting every day. Field generalship
is not perfect but both Banks and
Usher are strong on carrying the ball.
They have the necessary zip and dash.
Knode, the third candidate, is begin-
ning to hit his stride. Roby and Searle
executed several long runs and illus-
trated that permanent places in the
backfield are far from cinched.
With Dunne Goes Fight
When Dunne went out of the game,
the man who. instills most of the fight
in the team /Went out. In his place
came Van Orden: With his build and
size, Van, could make a strong line-
man, but he lacks the fight. He is too
easy going. It has been remarked that
if someone would crack him across the
shins and. get him fighting mad he
would make things uncomfortable for
anyone. It might be worth trying.
Swap. was trying out at tackle but did

1OST SAYS ---

"The line lacked the drive,
power, and aggressiveness neces-
cary to hold its own against a
good line. There must be an
improvement before it can face
the strong Conference lines even-
ly. As a whole, the teafts had
developedmore cohesion and
I team work. The men knew their
part in the plays better.
Case and Mt. Union were in
Imany ways teams of the same
strength, Case having better
punters and some harder tackl-
ers. *
Our own tackle problem re-
mains unsolved.
Ohio State's strength cannot
be judged by last Saturday's
game. Coach Wilce was merely
experimenting and trying out
possible combinations against
Oberlin."
not do himself justice. Petro, Krein-
heder, Smith, Crawforth, Henry, and
others all were given a chance.
This week, Coach Yost is pointing
his team for the M. A. C. game Satur-
day. But it is with his eyes on the
Ohio game the following week that he
is directing practice. He does not
consider the game between Ohio and
Oberlin in which Oberlin won 7 to 6
as any indication of Ohio's strength.
Coach Wilce was doing a lot of shift-
ing and experimenting. Huffman and
Trott were at ends, and Myers was
at fullback. Blair, last year's 'full-
back, was not in the game due to in-
juries. Ohio's strength should not be
judged on that game. It is all the
more certain that Ohio State will come
to Ann Arbor even more determined
than it would of under other circum-
stances. It is quite possible that the
defeattby Oberlin will do them more
good than harm.
Squad Cut to 35 Men
Work in the future will find the
squad down to35 men. The following
men will continue to report to the
Varsity mentors: Banks, Cappon,
Crawforth, Curran, Dean, Dunne, Dun-
phy, Fairbairn, Garfield, Goebel, Gun-

phy# Fairbalirn, Garfield, Goebel,Gunth-
er, Henry, Johns, Keatley, Kipke, Kirk,
Knode, McAuliffe, Muirhead, Neisch,
Novy, Petro, Richards, Rloby, Searle,
Smith, Steketee, Swan, Trout, Usher,
Uteritz, Van Orden, Vick Wieman, and
Wilson. Supplementing his list, the
coach added several pointed remarks.
"You cannot be a good football play-
er unless you are aggressive-always
fighting-alert and ready-the first
man to line up. ONLY TEN MORE
PRACTICES BEFORE THE 0. S. U.
CAME.
For the Vast few days, Gunther and
Wieman have been out for light prac-
tices. Such will be their work for
several days to come until completely
recovered from their injuries. Neisch
is still on the hospital list and will be
unable to engage in any practice for
at least a week or two.
Stiff Drill for Line
Yesterday's drill was given over to
a stiff defensive and bffensive line
workout. The forward wall men were
hard hammered in the attempt to
strengthen that part of the team. Their
lot is not going to be an easy one for
the next few weeks. The matter of
offside was also given considerable
time as this over anxiousness has been
costly to the team in the first two
games. The men have been coached
to play the ball more than the man.
For the backfield, kicking, running,
and passing was in order. Vick was

busy kicking off, while Goebel"and
Dean were centered on place kicks
after touchdown. The return of Gun-
ther adds another strong back to the
already strong backfield. He will not
be used for several weeks, however.
Wieman's presence in a uniform means
the big fellow will also see action in
several weeks.
Intramural Items
Inclement weather, which has fea-
tured the past few days, has caused an
unexpected delay in the progress of
the intramural schedules. Interfra-
ternity soccer, which was set to get
under way yesterday afternoon, will
not start until Thursday. Entry-lists
have, therefore, ben kept open, and
further teams may be signed up until
3:30 o'clock today. The opening round
will be announced in Wednesday's
Daily.
With three days of rain absolute-
ly stopping the tennis schedule an ex-
tension of time on first round match-
es has been granted. All of these
must be played by tonight and the re-
sults turned in to the Intramural of-
flee. Second round matches may be
played until Friday evening.
