Five Men Are Transferred From
"B" Squad; Practice To
Be In Secret
With anything but bright pros-
pects before them after the sound
trouncing administered by the Ohio
Wesleyan outfit last Saturday, the
Varsity football squad settled down
to a week of intensive drill behind
locked gates to iron out the flaws
that appeared in the opening game.
In an effort to supply the offen-
sive punch so sadly lacking in the
contest with the Bishops, five men
have been advanced from the Jun-
ior Varsity on the strength of their
showings in the game with Mt. Un-
ion college at Alliance and the
scrimmages with the regulars last
This group includes three back-
field men, Dallas Whittle, Alvin
Dahlam and John Totzke; Harsen
Smith, an end; and Robert Wil-
liams, tackle or guard. Whittle is
a letterman from the 1927 squad
and is a capable passer and kicker;
Totzke's specialty is punting, while
Dahlam's speed may supply the
drive that a successful backfield
must have.
Reports from the coaches who
scouted. the Indiana game indicate
that Pat Page has developed a
powerful aggregation which will
give the Wolves some of the. hard-
est Conference competition of the
season. The Hoosiers have a vet-
eran team, an exceptionally heavy
forward wall and a real offensive
threat in Captain Bennett.
While the Indiana team was forc-
ed to come from behind in its con-
test with Oklahoma Saturday to
eke out a 10-7 victory, the Michi-
gan coaches feel confident that the
Pagemen will invade the new sta-
dium Saturday determined to ac-'
complish something that a Hoosier
eleven has never yet succeeded in1
doing, namely to .trip a Wolverine
team on its home field.
Yesterday's practice saw the en-1
tire squad put through a long and'
strenuous tackling practice in anI
effort to remedy the poor showing
of the team Saturday in this de-
partment. Three sets of freshment
backs kept the Varsity players busy1
until rain forced them indoors.,
While Coaches Wieman, Cappon<
and Veenker were watching the
tacklers and correcting their faults,E
Coach Yost spent his time with the
punters and passers, with some of
the backs receiving punts, while
others ran down' for passes. Whit-
tle was given considerable instrue-
tion in the art of throwing the ball.
Inside the field house the squad
was given a number of new plays
and then they were divided up into
teams and proceeded to run
through them. A long signal drill
completed the afternoon's work.
The first part of this week will
be devoted almost exclusively to
work of an offensive nature and
the team will take the field much
better prepared to offer a. real at-
tack than was the case against
Wesleyan. Tackling practice will
be in order all week, while the two
days preceding Saturday's game
will see the men drilling on a de-
fense to stop the Hoosier attack.
Meanwhile Coaches Courtright
and Brown were correcting the
faults exhibited by the Junior Var-
sity against the Mt. Union team,
and remaking their backfield, an
act necessitated by the promotion

of Whittle, Dahlam and Totzke.
A number of new plays were giv-
en out by Coach Courtright and
the squad spent the latter part of
the practice session in becoming
acquainted with them.

Michigan's 1928 football team]
was given an acid test in the game
with Ohio Wesleyan Saturday, and
found wanting in practically every
department of play. Throughout
the contest the Wolverines were
outplayed as well a outsmarted.
Admittedly a 'green' aggre-
gation the Maize and Blue elev-
en failed to compare with the
* seasoned Bishop outfit, and
revealed what a great deal of
work remains to be done be-
fore the first Conference game
with Indiana Saturday.
The Wolverines fell short of the
standard of other years in the fun-
damentals as well as in the finer
points of the game, the blocking,
tackling and general team play be-
ing lamentably weak.
An example of the daring
displayed by the winners is to
be found in the dash through
the line that netted 48 yards
by Breese, when e v e r y o n e
thought that the Bishops
would certainly kick, the ball
