brills In Tackling And Other De-
fense Tactics Take Up Most
Of Practice Session
Further drilling in tackling top-
ped off by a dummy scrimmage
with a freshman eleven using Ohio
State formations marked the prac-
tice of the varsity squad yesterday.
A reorganization of the varsity
backfield was indicated during the
session with the freshmen since
Straub was at quarter, Rich at full,
and Totzke and Wheeler at halves.
This combination may possibly add
the speed so badly needed in the
Wolverine offense.
Practice Defense Tactics
Save for a brief period devoted
to running through plays, the ma-
jor portion of the practice was de-
voted to defensive tactics. The
squad was split up, Blott taking the
linesmen, Wieman the backs and
Veenker the ends and each section
was put through a strenuous work-
out with freshman backs offering
themselves as tackling dummies.
For the most part the tackling was
clean and hard, only a few of the
first year ball carriers getting away
successfully. The ends were also
treated to a forward passing drill,
Bennie Oosterbaan hurling the
leather to them. Captain Rich was
included in this drill.
Gembis Place Kicks
Gembis started his practice with
a long place kicking drill. He fell
short most of the time when on the
45-yard marker but was booting the
oval through the uprights with fair
consistency from a point five yards
nearer the posts.
The change in the varsity back-
field was revealed when the squad1

Tournament This Fall
Horseshoe pitching has become a

the fraternity men.
All of those interested are asked

fit meeting of the tio senoois on
the gridiron.
This series of traditional en-
counters dates back to 1897
when the Wolverines defeated
the Buckeyes, 36-0.. From 1901
until 1912 the teams played an
unbroken succession of games,
Michigan winning all of them,
Iexcept that of 1910 which end-
ed in a 3-3 tie.
The rivalry was temporairly sus-
pended between 1912 and 1917, but
it was renewed the following fall,
Michigan winning her fourteenth
victory over the Buckeyes, 14-0.
Ohio enjoyed a period of su-
premacy for the next three
seasons, winning the games
played in 1919, 1920, and 1921
by scores of 14-3, 14-7, and 14-0
The Buckeye-Wolverine battle of
1921 when the fleet Johnny Stew-
art, Scarlet and Grey halfback,
raced to two touchdowns has been
the only occasion on which Ohio
has held a Michigan team scoreless,
while the Wolverines have perfor-
med the feat in 14 of the 24 games.
Of the 24 games played' thus
far, Michigan has won 20, Ohio
State 3, and one 'resulted in a
tie. Michigan's largest margin
was in the game of 1903 when
the Wolverines piled up a count
of 86-0.

Another point of interest in
the traditional rivalry is the
fact that six seasons ago the
Wolverines dedicated the mam-
moth double-decked stadium
at Columbus, and last year the
Buckeyes helped in the offical
opening of the new Michigan
By a strange turn of fate, the
Maize and Blue hold the distinc-
tion of having won both dedicatory
struggles, Harry Kipke and his
mates breaking Ohio's string of
three successive wins by taking the
game of 1922, 19-0, while Capt.
Bennie Oosterbaan led his team to
a 21-0 victory last year.
Reports from Columbus in-
dicate that the Bucks are tak-
ing, the coming game very
seriously despite the fact that
football followers concede them
the best chance of downing the
Wolverines since the dedica-
tion of their Memorial stadium
in 1922.
Like the Wolverines, the Buck-
eyes will drill for the coming con-
test behind barred gates all week.

Over thirty-five men turned out
for the first Basketball practice of
the season Monday night'in Water-
man gymnasium, according to
Head Coach George Veenker.
Coaches Oosterbaan and Cappon
will assist Coach Veenker with the
Varsity cquintet.
Owing to the fact that several of
the veteran cagemen are out for
football, only two of the four let-
termen again eligible to compete
will be seen in basketball togs be-
fore the gridiron season closes.
Danny Rose appeared at the first
meeting, while Bob Chapman, 1927
center, is expected out as soon as
a blistered foot heals.
Captain McCoy and Orwig, two
more regulars, from last year's five,
are at present busy with football,
as are Del Whittle, a former sub-
stitute, and Truskowski, who is
counted on to fill one of the posi-
tions left vacant by the graduation
of O'o ,1t er b a a n, Harrigan, and
Gawne. Draveling, big sophomore
end, is expected to make a strong
bid for a regular place on the team.
Practically the entire 1927 "B"
team appeared on the floor Mon-
day. Kanitz, Balsamo, McDonald

We can't very well say "smart" because that suggests somewhat a superficial here-
today-gone-tomorrow quality. Whereas the virtues of Thos. Heath are deep
and permanent; they come from so much personal supervision, hand-work and
everlasting fussing with details. Might we then use the good old English word
"swanky"? We might, but who would know what we were talking about? "Elegant"
"rich" sightly"-we feel the reproachful gaze of Thos. Heath upon us. We give
it up. All the really fine things in life are that way. You can't describe them!




If you're a judge of fine fleece and other good woolens you'll
appreciate the splendid fabrics that comprise each of these
hardy overcoats. Your choice of several swagger models;
your pick of numerous smart patterns and your exact size and
build in the coat you like.
