Babcock to be Out of Northwestern
Game With Broken
Michigan's Varsity took a light
workout yesterday afternoon follow-
ing their hard fought game with the
Gophers Saturday and the long home-
ward trip.
While the regulars who took part
in the Minnesota game had an easy
drill on individual play, the other
members of the squad started prepa,
ration for the Purple game by run-
ning through a scrimmage with the
Freshmen who used Northwestern
Babcock Injured
George Babcock, regular Varsity
right tackle and one of the most de-
pendable men on the line will be out
of the coming game with a broken
hand, a souvenir of the Minnesota
game. Captain Steger and Ben Fried-
man were also kept out of practice
yesterday afternoon by injuries.
Steger is still recovering from a
heel injury while Friedman is laid
up with a game leg, another memento
of the Minnesota game. Babcock will
be ready to play by the time of the
Ohio game, according to the trainers
while Steger and Friedman are both
due to see service in the Northwest-
ern game.
Michigan's team looked better in
the Minnesota game than it has be-
fore this season. Every member of;
the squad stood up to his former per-;
formances and several outplayed;
themselves. IHnrold Steele, playing atI
right guard gave the best exhibition
of his career on the Michigan Varsity.I
Time and again he was through the
Gopher line on the defense and hisI
powerful charging was responsible
for many Michigan gains at the line.I
Edwrards is Star1
Tom Edwards was also a shining
light kn the game. On one occasion
when a Minnesota punt had beent
blocked and the ball had rolled over<
into tire sideline seats, Edwards left
his feet, crashed in among the foldingt
chairs and .recovered the ball. InI
that instance the ball was. Michigan's
on ground rules and the spectacular
recovery was really needless, but all
during the course of the game he was
tearing into the heavy Minnesota line
and smearing plays. Bob Brown and
Butch Slaughter were both up to form
against the Gophers and bore the
brunt of the powerful line driving
attack of Lidberg and his teammates.
Bob Brown was the first one down
the field on every Michigan punt,
guarding the ball until it had rolled
dead. .Slaughter had as his most spec-
tacular play the interceptng of
As4er's paas when the ball was in
scoring position.
Flora an, Miller also played great
gamed at the ends against their heavy
Gopher opponents and ttiey managed
to spear the majority of runners on
off tackle drives and end runs. On
one punt early in the game both of
the Michigan ends tore down the field.
Guzy caught the punt on the 1inne-
sota 25 yard line and Miller tackled
him so hard that the ball rolled from
his hands, Flora 'recovering. Babcock
also played a great game at tackle
until he was injured in the second
period. On one occasion he stopped
a Gopher drive in midfield by re-
covering a fumble on the first down.
Rockwell Uses head
To Tod Rockwell goes a great deal
of the credit for the Michigan victory
Minnesota by the official figures got
nine first owns while Michigan was
getting one. It was headwork on,
Rockwell's part and sheer stupidity
on the part of the Minnesota quarter
that made Michigan's scoring chances
pan out in the last of the first and
the beginning of the second periods.
Rockwell also kept the Gophers
guessing when he started to tote the
ball. Ben Friedman kept up his well'
nigh perfect passing game and al-

though he failed to get away for the

spectacular off tackle dashes which
brought him fame in the Wisconsin
game he was consistent in making
Herrnstein, breaking into the ranks
of the regulars again, made up for!
his lack in weight by his speed and
kept the home team on edge when he
ran down for passes. His catch of
the pass responsible for the first
touchdown came at full speed and he
tumbled across the goal line before,
he had time to turn his head. Dutch
Marion was also an important cog in
the backfield and although he failed
to break away through the line as
successfully as the bullet-like Lid-
berg he made consistent gain8. Park-
er, who got into the game after
Friedinan's injury was just getting
warmed up on his passing game when
the final shot was fired but got away
one good heave and backed up the
line well.
