Wolverine Coaching Staff Strives To'
Build Up Formidable Offensive
Drive Before Satutday
Well satisfied with the defensive
play of the Wolverine team in the
Indiana game, Coach Tad Wieman
and his assistants will devote the
major portion of this week's prac-
tice to the task of developing a
formidable o ff e n seto launch
against the Ohio State team Sat-
urday in the big Buckeye stadium.
In the two games played thus
far Michigan has failed to show
any semblance of power offensive-
ly and a strong offense must be
perfected during the three days of
drill remaining before the squad
entrains for Columbus if Michigan
is to maintain her perfect record
for games played in the Buckeye
Need Fast Back
Michigan's greatest need at pres-
ent is a fast, hard running back'
who can shot off-tackle and cir-
cle the ends. A Chuck Bennett, a
Faunce, or a Reinhardt would make
the Maize and Blue backfield com-
bination a formidable one indeed.
Rich and Gembis supply a wealth
of power for a line attack, but
neither is sufficiently fast to ne-
gotiate longer runs with any de-
gree of consistency.
In John Totzke Coach Wieman
has apparently founda solution to
his punting prsoblems. His work in
the Hoosier game left little if any-
thing to be desired, the average
for each of his 13 kicks hovering
around the 40 yard mark.
Whittle Recovering
Del Whittle, who started the
game at the quarterback post, Was
greatly handicapped by an injured
knee and was able to offer no as-
sistance offensively. By Saturday,
however, the ailing knee should be
in shape again and the Buckeye
tilt will serve as a real test of Whit-
tle's ability.
The quarterback problem is ad-
mittedly one of the most serious
ones that the Wolverine board of
strategy must solve before Satur-
day's game. None of the three as-
pirants for the post who have seen
action thus far have revealed all
of the attributes desirable in a suc-
cessful field general.
Showing an improvement of 100
percent over their play in the Wes-
leyan game, Michigan's ends turn-
ed in an encouraging exhibition
against the Hoosiers. Truskowski
played one of the finest games of
his career and proved a bulwark
of defense on his side of the line.
Draveling at the opposite end look-
ed very promising and with a little

With the new pool in the Intra-
mural building nearly completed,
the prospects of Michigan's tank
team for 1929 may well be consid-I
ered. Ten lettermen and three
AMA winners form a good basis on
which Coach Matt Mann will build
the successor to his championship

Bob Walker, junior free style
star, may well be considered to fill 1
the place left vacant by the grad-(
uation of ex-Capt. Bob Darnall.

fastest swimmers in college circles,
a fact substantiated by his show-
ing in Big Ten meets last year. He

and Fell Hosmer, a numeral win-j

are able to break one minute in

be able to use separate swimmers
in the sprints and the relay. Mc-
Donald and Auer are outside pos-
sibilities for regular berths.

place due to his breaking of the
