Michi n Vill hold Light Drill in
Giantit orseshoe Stadiu
This Afternoon
Michigan's entire foaball squad of
35 men and all the coaches except
Kipke, who will scout Minnesotas
game with Butler, left at 9:09 last
night for Columbus. A light drill
will be held in the horseshoe stadium
this afternoon and afterward the men
will stay at the Columbus Athletic
club until the game.-0'
All the Wolverines are in good con-
dition and in a good frame of mind for
a hard scrap after the final hard
workout last night on Ferry field. The
coaches drove the men until 5:30 in
a final polishing of both defense and
offense. The team has been given
seveal new plays and will present
the most polished offense of the year.
After a drill on catching and running
back kicks, and tossing and catching
of forward passes, the team was given
another dummy scrimmage. The
freshmen donned scarlet jerseys sim-
ilar to the ones Ohio State players
will wear in the game tomorrow. Then
the yearlings took the ball uaing
Buckeye plays while the Varsity play-
ed defensive and Coach Wieman ex-
plained "what was going on."
Mingled respect and fear are held
by players and coaches for Ohio
State's vaunted attack which is also
well supported by a strong forward
wall. The only statement Coach Yost
would make was, "You never can tell
about a ball game." He declined to
announce the starting lineup and said
"the boys with the most fight are the
ones who will play."
The probable lineup includes
Oosterbaan and Flora at ends, Lov-
ette and Dewey at guards, Baer and
either Grinnell or Gabel at the tac-
kles, Shoenfeldt or Truskowsi at
center, Friedman at quarterback, Gil-
bert and Molenda at the halves, and
Walter Veber at fullback. The line-
up aside from right tackle and center
is practically certain, though Leo
Hoffman may get in the game if Mo-
lenda's ankle gives him trouble.
Ohio State's team this year is the
best that Dr. Wilce has developed
since 1920 and is one of the foremost
contenders for natiofial honors. Led
by Capt. Marty Karow from the full-
back post the Buckeyes have both a
strong running attack and a deadly
pass threat.
Michigan will have to watch jersey
number 13, which Karow has used as
an ill luck omen to other Ohio op-
ponents this fall. At halfback, Elmer
Marek a junior wearing number 11,
will give the ends a lot of trouble, and
his work in the Ohio pass combination
has been brilliant at times this season.
Grim, number 20, a star of the cin-
ders, and Eby, number 5 Wilce's
"find" of the year, are another pair
who go to make the Buckeye back-
field one of the strongest in the coun-
try. Hess, giant guard who made the
mythical all-American team last year,
forms a powerful bulwark in the line
and will wear number 26. Leo Klein
at the pivot position is rated as one
of the best centers ever developed at
Ohio State. His number is 17. Hunt,
an kedwho has always been a trou-
blemaker, wears 33.
Against this "array Coach Yost will
throw the entire strength of the Wol-
verine forces in a desperate attempt
to eliminate the Buckeyes from the
Western Conference race and consid-
eration for national honors.

ford university football team only
plays four games in the Pacific Coast

Knute Rockne, wizard of mid-west-{
ern football, and veteran coach of the
Notre Dame football team which plays
Army in one of the most important
games of the season tomorrow at Yan-
kee stadium, has made a record that
any coach in the country would take
just pride in achieving.
In his 10 year's experience as coach
at the South Bend college, Rockne's
teams have played a total of 90
games. Of this number the fighting
Irish have been victorious in 81, tied
2 and lost only 7.
Moreover, the Notre Dame teams
have never faced hand-picked sched-
ules, but on the other hand they have
always been recognized among the
hardest and most extensive lists in
the entire country. Games have been
arranged with teams from every part
of the United States, east, south, mid-
west, and far west, thus necessitating
the loss of valuable practice through
time consumed in traveling from one
part of the country to another.
Notre Dame teams in their 10 years
under Rockne have been very con-
sistant, but their success is attributed
mainly to the high standard and ad-
vanced type of play that always char-
I acterizes the appearance of these play-
ers. Shift formations, tricky passes,
light but speedy linemen, with still
fleeter backs, are typical of Rockne
elevens. Variety of offense without
a similar losssofdefense are other
factors in the success of this remark-
able gridiron mentor.
The Irish head coach starred on the
footballfield in his college days and
strangely enough on Notre Dame
teams. In 1913 he captained a fight-
ing team that went through a hard
season without a single defeat. The
list of defeated teams included Army
which was downed 35-13, in the first
game ever to be played between the
two teams,
Notre Dame has played, Army 12
times thus far, and has emerged vic-
tor from eight of these battles, lost
three, and in 1922 the teams played
a scoreless tie.
