Sau ghter S uld Prove Great Aid To Little

Harry Iipke Works With Pnters t
Final Effort To Develop A Kicker
Of Real Ability
With the Michigan State game less
than a week away, Coach Yost did
not ease up on the training program
yesterday afternoon. After the Wol-
verine coaches had schooled the can-
didates in blocking and forward pass-
ing, Coach Tad Wieman selected two
teams, the Blues and the Reds, and
held an hour's scrimmage.
Harry Kipke worked with the punt-
ers in a final effort to uncover a good
kicker before the East Lansing ag-
gregation invades Ferry field. Yost
has been fortunate in possessing good
punters fot- the past five years, and
will miss the punting ability of Kip-
ke and Rockwell. Fuller and Miller
were given special attention in the
punting game and showed consider-
able prowess.
Coach Yost tried a new combination
in the backfields. The Blue back-
field was composed of Cowell and
Fuller at the halves, Molenda at full,
and Friedman at quarter. Gregory,
Stamman, Miller and Hoffman consti-
tuted the Red backfield.
The scrimmage was rather ragged.
The Blues took the defensive with
the Reds doing all of the ball toting,
but with little success. The only
sensational play in the afternoon be-
ing a twenty yard forward pass from
Gregory to Hoffman. The Red quar-
terback made a leap into the air and
snared the pass while being covered
by two Blue gridders.
Throwing Shoes
Costly Game For
Michigan Captain
Captain Roy H. Callahan, of the
Cross Country team has a unique rec-
ord in the annals of Michigan sport.
It is unique in that he has been a
hard luck runner and has been un-
ables to keep his shoes on!
Previously to a meet with Ohio
State at Columbus, last fall, he had
experienced no trouble in keeping his
shoes on, but in this race, he lost one
at the beginning of the five mile grind.
Rather than quit, and be counted last
in the race, he continued to run, fin-
ishing fourth in a field of 20, but in-
juring his foot so badly that it bother-
ed him all season. A few weeks later
he again threw a shoe, this time the
coach noticed it and ordered him to
stop running.'
Will he lose any more shoes this
season? Coach Farrel has decided
that if he can prevent it he will not
lose another, and as an extra means
of insuring it, he has had a pair of
high top runnings shoes made for
him. But Callahan seems to be able to
fool all of the shoemakers, for the
third time he wore the footwear pre-
pared especially for him he broke a
pair of shoelaces and all but lost a
shoe. The coach and members of the
harrier squad are of the opinion that
if Roy can keep his shoes on Michi-
gan will again have one of her color
bearers cross the finish line first in
the Conference cross country meet to
be held here the morning of Novem-
ber 21.
Most of Callahan's hard luck came
in his sophomore year. Due to an in-
jury to his head he was unable to
breathe properly. While running in
a five mile race against Michigan
State College, the pain from his in-
jury became so acute that it blinded
him. He staggered along the road un-
til two of his teammates overtook
him, He refused to quit, and telling
them of his predicament, instructed
one of them to run on each side of
him, and thus keep him on the road.
This trio were well up among the
leaders in the race, but on nearing
the finish line were in danger of be-

ing overtaken by some of the enemy
harriers, so Roy instructed his guides
to go on, and lie attempted to finish
alone. He kept his position until a
100 yards from the finish where he
stumbled and fell. He jumped up and
finished, not being the last man in
spite of all his trouble. Coach' Far-
rell instructed him not to run againI
that season, and ordered a small
operation which cured his breathing.
Callahan had a fair season last
Due to the shortness of time
in which to play, tomorrow will
be the last day on which entries I

ment will be accepted. All men,

With a sauad of 20 cross country
candidates containing five veteran
runners, Coach Steve Farrell, veteran
mentor of the Wolverine track teams,
is entertaining high hopes of produc-
ing a stronger aggregation than the
1924 harrier squad.
Five men, Captain Callahan, Briggs,I
Reinke, Hornberger, and Baker, ranj
in the Big Ten Conference meet hereJ
last fall, and are showing improved
form this season.
Hornberger had a little trouble
last fall with his health but this year
he has shown improvement in the
triali. In the course of the summer
he has added 20 pounds to his weight.
Coach Farrell has some promising
material from the freshman team of
last year. Brown, Hill, and Witmer,
are working hard to secure a place on
1 the team.
As there is a limit set for the num-
ber of entries in the Conference title
race, competition on the squad is ex-
tremely keen. With five out of the
six that ran last fall trying for places,
the sixth place will be at a premium.
Tie Wolverines open their 1925
schedule with the Badgers on the
I morning preceding the Wisconsin-
Michigan game. Ten men will make
the trip to M'adison providing the
men show that they can reduce their
running time to warrant places in the

(By Nor"an E. Brown)
George Little, chief aide to hurry
Up Yost of Michigan in late years and
now "on his own" as coach of the
Wisconsin football eleven, had plenty1
of opportunity to study Michigan play-
ers in his career at the Wolverine
school. Quite obviously.
It is significant, then, that one of!
the men he has working with him
this fall to give the Wisconsin eleven,
a good team is Ed Slaughter.
Slaughter played guard on the Mich-
igan team for three years, ending his
career last fall. He won all-Amer--
'ican honors from various critics all
three of those years and was a un-
animous choice last year.
Slaughter is one of the greatest de-
fensive guards the Big Ten has had in
recent years. "He was half the line
himself when his side of the line was
faltering," said one Michigan grid fol-
lower the other day. On offense
Slaughter could be counted on not
only to open up a hole but "carry
through" with the play.
* At .Wisconsin, Slaughter is giving
his entire attention to the linemen.
The Badger school has always had a
powerful attacking team. Little wants
to build up, to go with this attack, a
bullet proof defense. Slaughter is the
man for the job.

indn addition to knowing tie
game itself Slaughter is well acquaint-
ed with Yost's line play ideas. With
Slaughter coaching 'the linemen, Ir-
win Uteritz, Michigan backfield star
as backfield aide, and Little, fresh
Ifrom Michigan also, to oversee the en-
tire task, Yost's men will face a
"home bred" team this fall when the
Badgers and Wolverines meet.

First call for freshman cross coun-
try candidates last Friday brought out
a group of 30 promising men. Regu-
lar practice, consisting of running
and walking over the 2 7-10 mile
course has been taking place daily
and prospects for a strong team are
In the few practices which have
been held a few men have shown to
good advantage. Monroe, former fresh-
man distance runner at Michigan St ate
college heads the formidable list of
tracksters. Jones and Eddy, newcom-
ers in college circles have also
shown well.
Coach C. C. Furnass urges that
many new men turn out. The cross
country event is not only helpful to
those entering the long runs, but
also helps. to build stamina for those
entering other track ' events. Those
desiring to tryout for the team should
report to the coach any afternoon at I
4 o'clock at Waterman gymnasium.
The final race at the close of the
year will be run over the regular
freshman course. The first three to!
finish will be awarded numerals and
silver loving cups. All freshmen are'
eligible to compete.
Urbana, Ill., Sept. 28.-With the first
away Coach Zuppke is still in doubt
as to whom he will use at the piv(tA
position. A 235 pounder is among the
aspirants for the job.
