VARSITY PERFECTS DEFENSE AGAINST INDIANA i

Passing Attack
MC BRIDE ISTRANSFERRED
In preparation for the Indiana
game tomorrow, Coach Tad Wie-
man put his gridiron charges
through a long drill in the new
stadium yesterday afternoon. A
warn, October sun did not improve
the practice conditions, so regular
scrimmage was dispensed with by
the coaches.
A freshman eleven in red jersies
and directed by Coach Veenker
went through several of the In-
diana plays against the Varsity.
The "Hoosiers" gave the Wolverine
regulars an opportunity to break
up their shift formations, which
resembled the famed Minnesota
shift of former days.
Passing Defense Weak
Coach Wieman spent a great deal
of time perfecting the Michigan
pass defense, to guard against the
Hoosier aerial attack. The showing
of the Wolverines against Ohio
Wesleyan passes last Saturday, was.
far from satisfactory. The Bat-
tling Bishops completed nearly
half their tosses, gaining 41 yards
by the aerial route. The coaches
devoted a short session to kicking
off and receiving the ball.
An intimation of tomorrow's line- J
up was gained from the personnel'
of the team that was drilled on
defense against the Indiana plays.
Draveling and Truskowski were at
the ends, Pommerening and Wil-
liams at the tackles, Squier and
Cragin at the guard posts, with Al
Bovard at center.
Totzke, Whittle, May Start
The backfield that broke up the
Hoosier pass plays consisted of
Captain Rich, Gembis, Whitttle and
Totzke. Whittle was later replaced
by Straub in the lineup, as it was
apparent that he had not fully re-
covered from the leg injury he re-
ceived in ,the Mount Union game.
Thus the quarterback position
seems to be still in doubt. It is
likely, however, that Totzke will
receive the punting assignment
against Indiana.
McBride, formerly of the B squad,
appeared with the Varsity in the
stadium, making another quarter-
back available. Boden was in uni-
form, but did not get the call at
end, while Poe, also handicapped
by injuries, spent more of the time
on the sidelines.

Iowa Coaches Drlve
Team As Game With
Chicago Draws Near
(Special To The Daily)
IOWA CITY, Oct. 11.-Speed and
resourcefulness in linemen's play,
quick-forming interference which
will ease the way of the ball-car-
riers, and better punting are foot-?
ball assests which Hawkeye coaches1
are laboring to bring forth
among University of Iowa players.
Behind locked gates the drills are
proceeding, for Saturday brings
the Chicago game on Stagg field,
and the opening of the Western
conference season.
Just average form was displayed
against Monmouth last Saturday,
when the Hawkeyes, not exerting
themselves over-much, lagged
through to a 26 to 0 victory. It
was the same winning margin as
1927's first game, also with Mon-
mouth.
The fear that -weight would di-
minish the speed of the line was
realized when the smaller colle-
gians at times outcharged the
Iowa veterans-Schleusner and
Jessen, tackles; Westra and Rob-
erts, guards; and Captain Brown,
center.
Stories of the astounding im-
provement of Chicago were brought
back by Sam Barry, Iowa's scout,
who said the the Maroons exhibi-
ted slashing drive and alert line
play in their 47 to 0 victory over
Wyoming. The showing of the
fast Maroon backs was helped,
however, by the acknowledged
weakness of the /Cowboy tackles
and ends.
Cross-Country Team
To Trek Full Route
Candidates for the cross-country
team will engage in another prac-
tice run at 11 o'clock Saturday
morning. , A three and one-half
mile trek is scheduled, the longest
of any of the previous runs. The
squad will follow the usual route
leaving Yost field house and con-1
cluding the run at the entrance
of the Ann Arbor gold club course.

Singles Matches Advance Rapidly
As Five Players Reach Quarter
Final Round
PREP STARS WILL CLASM
All campus tennis although hin-
dered by inclement weather, iS
again gaining momentum and
hope is entertained by the intra-
mural department that final round
play in both doubles and singles
will be completed by the middle of
next week.
Singles are advancing a bit more
rapidly than the doubles with five
players, Nelson, Reindel, Dusen-
bury, Beal, and Cole already in the
quarter final round. In third round
play Roethke, Gudelsky, Brace,
Ryan, Clarke, Hipsh, Kimball, Lhe-
vinne, Leonard and Kinney remain.
Three teams nave reached the
third round in the doubles compe-
tition, the Kimball-Phelps, Nelson-
Dusenbury, and Harris-Kaufman
combinations.

The Indiana roster includes no'
less than 24 letter men and 19 nu-
meral winners from last year's
freshman squad. Incidentally ru-
mor has it that a number of the
outstanding sophomores are cer-
tain to be in the opening lineup
tomorrow.
Last week, while the first
team was eking out a 10-7 vic-
tory over Oklahoma University,
the second stringers were put-
ting up a game battle at Iowa
City, losing by the narrow
margin of 13-6, largely because
a large number of Hawkeye
regulars were used against
them rather than against Mon-
mouth, the Hawks' other op-
ponent in the doubleheader.
Coach Pat Page has built his
1928 machine around four seniors
who have starred on Hoosier elev-
ens for the past three years, Cap-
tains Chuck Bennett and Rags
Matthew, Clare Randolph and Paul
Harrell. Branch McCracken, ex-
perienced end, is another one of
the team's mainstays. .
Randolph and Matthew at
center and guard posts form
the nucleus of the powerful
forward wall, with McCracken
a certain starter at one of the
end positions. Harrell will call
signals as well as handling the
punting assignment while Ben-
nett will work at one halfback
position.l
An examination of the statistics
of Wisconsin's 22-6 victory overj
Coach Knute Rockne's Fighting
Irish reveal a number of very sig-
nificant and interesting facts.
For. example, in attaining
their victory the Badgers made
only one first down to 11 for
Notre Dame; gained 48 yards.

Irish occurred in the third
quarter, when Morrissey, stand-
ing on -his own goal line, at-
tempted to punt the oval, but
instead missed it entirely. The
ball bounced to the two yard
line where Gantenbein fell on
it, Wisconsin scoring on the
next play.
It was plays like this that found
the Badger sophomores on the
alert and spelled defeat for the
hocknemen, giving Wisconsin re-
venge for the loss sustained at the
hands of The Four Horsemen just
four years ago.
Followers of the Junior Var-
sity gridmen will have their
first opportunity to see Coach
Courtright's men in action to-
morrow, as the game with

morning at Ypsilanti.
