Coach Farrell Nanes Six Men to Enter
Big 'Teni Meet Here

Michigan's Varsity football team
went through anothgr intensive work-
out yesterday afternoon. Only two
more practice sessions now separate
the Wolverines from their contest
with the Hawkeyes and today's drill
will be the last intensive work of the
1824 season. Tomorrow the squad will
go through plays and will have a light
workout on fundamentals.
The coaches continued to stress the
passing, kicking, and line work yes-
terday afternoon. The pass attack is
expected to play a large part in the
f nal contest of the year, especially in
consideration of the bulky Iowa line.
,Friedman is being carefully groomed
. this week and in addition there will
be Parker, Steger, or Rockwell to
assist in the aerial game. Parker,
who was kept out because of injurie'
at the start of the season after he
had shown great form in every d-
partment of the game, is likely to be
given a chance to perform in the final
tussle of the season. At the start of
the year he got almost as much dist-
ance on his boots as Rockwell, was
the best forward passer on the squad,
and displayed a lot of talent in the
running game.
Michigan's line .attack Is likely to
give better results this week than at
any time before this season, in spite
of the size and experience of the Iowa
forward wall. The Wolverine line has
gradually developed to a point where
it is considered one of the best in the
section and Dutch Marion is at the
height of his career. Saturday's game
will be his last in college footbal
and if he shows the same talent he
dId last week at Ohio It will undoubt-
edly be his greatest.
McGugin Calls B
Teams C
"Western Conference teams are the
lest in the country."
This is the opinion of Dan McGu-
gin, head coach at Vanderbilt, who
was in Ann Arbor yesterday on his
way to Minneanolis, where his team
will play Minnesota Saturday. Mc-
Gugin was a member of the famous
Yost-coached teams of a decade ago,
and spent the afternoon talking over
old times with his former teacher and
brother-in-law, and discussing the
football situation in general.
When asked his opinion with regard
to the comparison between leadingl
teams of the South and those of the
Big Ten, he made the statement that
there was really no comparison, and
that the Conference elevens were out-
standing in the country. -
Mr. McGugin said that this pointt
might not always hold good in meas-t
Airing up the individual merits of two .
representative teams, but that he felt
certaz that five or six teams from thet
East could not trim the same numberc
of Big Ten elevens.l
The Vanderbilt mentor would not
make any definite statement regard-
ing his team's chances against Min-
nesota. In spite of the distance be-
tween the two schools, he has kepti
posted on Minnesota's style of play,t
and his eleven is well prepared for theI

strongly on the worki of Wateheld,

siders Wakefield the equal of any
flanker in the game. In the Georgia
Tech game, it was he who booted a
long field goal for the only score of
the game. He also was a sensation
at breaking up the running attack of
the Golden Tornado. McGugin told of
how Wakefield, playing six yards be-
hind the line of scrimmage, in the
position of defensive halfback, once
nailed Doug Wycoff, the Tech star, for
a six yard loss. Wycoff is a fast man
himself, yet Wakefield was able to

Hawkeye Mentors Send Squad Against
Plays Used by Wol-
verine Team
(Special to The Daily)
Iowa City, Ia., Nov. 18.-Coach Ing-
werson gave his regulars their first
taste of scrimmage today since the
Wisconsin game, last Saturday. The
scouts who witnessed the Michigan-
Ohio contest have been busy impart-
ing their knowledge of Michiganj
plays and formations to the fresh-j
men who today stacked up against
the Varsity.
Iowa's backfield composed of Cap-
tan Parkins, Graham, Scantlebury,
and Fry showed some real class inI
Saturday's game and can be looked
to to do their stuff in the coming af-
fair with Michigan. With a good run-
ning attack almost an assurance, the
Hawkeye mentor was today working
up a defensive for the Michigan for-'

second in the Big Ten in the number
of field goals scored this season, will,

Chicago Coach Plans to Pass
to Victory Over Wis-
consin Team

(Special to The Daily)
Chicago, Ili., Nov. 19.--Chicago's
practice session today consisted of
extensive work in the preparation of
a forward pass attack that may be
used against Wisconsin.
Stagg's working theory in prepar-
ing this attack is that the Cardinal
team is exceptionally weak in break-
ing up aerial attempts, and that they
have the strongest line in the Con-
ference. With the Badger secondary
defense playing back to break up pos-
sible Maroon passes, the Chicago
backs will have a chance to hit the
much touted Wisconsin line while it
is devoid of the reserve strength of
the, backfield; should the backfield
refuse to go back on the pass forma-
tions then the forward heavies will
turn the trick.
All the Chicago punters were put
through a strenuous drill today in an
attempt to' find a. candidate whd may
offset the kicking ability of Leo Har-
mon, when the teems clash Saturday.
Curley who has kept Chicago in the
race this season by virtue of his drop
kicks in the Ohio State anid North~-
western games, will be held in readi-
ness to go against the Badgers should'
