He won nine "M's" during, the three
years he competed for the Maize and

years of competition. He made Wal-

ter field on the baseball team, and
was a spectacular fielder and a heavy
hitter. In the last athletic competi-
tion in which he wore the Michigan
colors, the baseball game with Meij:
university last spring, he wound up
his career by hitting a home run in
the eighth inning, scoring three men
ahead of him.
Besides his athletic accomplish-
ments, Harry was a good student,
never having been ineligible. He was
also one of th'e most popular men on
the Michigan campus.

sons, is ready to "carry on" his'
third year. He is Walter Koppisch.
And the swan song he sings on
the grid this year should be a bril-
Koppisch seemed a perfect play-
er, a super-star, to followers of the
pigskin chasers last season. For
the second consecutive year he was
the unanimous choice of all critics
for the All-American teams.
He was weak in one angle of the
game when the 1923 campaign be-
gan, however-one angle that kept
him from being the perfect player.
That was punting.
Percy Haughton centered his ef-
forts on developing this phase of
Koppisch's playing with the result
that the closing games of, last fall

ruple-threat man, a star in every
His kicking, passing, line plung-
ing and open field running made
him one of the greatest backfield
men on the field in 1923.
There is every reason to believ%%
that Koppisch will be more bril-
liant than ever this season.
While . Walter has ben winning
more than an average portion of
fame for himself he has also let
Columbia out of the football bull-
rushes. Football was abandoned at
the institution for several seasons.
Then, in 1915 the sport was resum-
ed. Half a dozen coaches and ral-
lies every other night failed to land
the team any place in the gridiron
sun, however. Koppisch drew at-
tention to himself-and to Colum-
bia his first season there, four years
aga. The team still lacked strength
to cope with its main rivals but Kop-
pisch's sensational work was the big
feature of its games. Critics soon
began to point him out as a "big
toad" in a "little puddle." Then last
year Haughton took hold of the Col-
umbia team. Around Koppisch he
constructed an eleven that made its

athlete and an enviable reputation as
a man. He drills his men hard, yet
they never fail to respond to his ex-
cellent advice and effective leadership.
He deserves full credit for the suc-
cess of the Missouri backfield, with
which he spent many patient hours.
His chief task at the start of the year
was to develop a kicker, and it is
significant that the thrilling victory
over Chicago was made by a field
goal. While at Michigan, Coach Kipke
won the reputation of being the best
punter in the West, and possibly in
the country, and his drop kicks and
placements were factors in many of
his team's victories. He seems to
have transferred some of his master-
ly ability in this line to Coglizer,
whose boot won the big game.

All American star has taken a place
at Missouri which is seldom attained.,
He is the idol of the student body as
well as of the football squad, where
his efforts are invaluable, and where
his ability and manner have won the
confidence of every player.
Harris Comes Of
When the Army and Navy elevens
clash late this fall in their annual
game a "home' built" team will be
pitted against an "assembled" one.
Close followers of the two teams
point out that the Annapolis stars1
expectad to shine this season are
mostly men who were developed
under coaches at the academy. The
Army team is composed mainly ofI
men who had achieved some meas.
ure of success on the gridiron be-
fore entering Uncle Sam's institution.
Three of the men counted on as
towers of strength in the Army
backfield this year are "Tiny" Hewitt,
Harry Wilson and Bill Wood. Hewitt
won fame as a line plunger with
Pittsburg two years ago. Wood was a
star of the John Hopkins University
eleven before joining the soldier
boys four: years ago. Wilson was on
the Penn. Varsity for three seasons
and an important member of the teamI
each of those years.
Of the men, mostly newcomers,I
on whom the Navy coaches are
counting for backfield material this
year Flippen is the only one who
won any fame on the college grid
before donning the sailor togs. He
was a member of one of the much
heralded Centre college elevens.
The Navy must develop a com-
plete new backfield. Cullen, Bar.
chet, Devens and McKee were grad-
uated last June.
