Yost Works With Passers And
Ends; Wieman Coaches Linemen
And Kickers
With the second scrimmage of
the season difinitely scheduled for
this afternoon, the big Wolverine
football squad continued its drill
on fundamentals yesterday, work-
ing out in two separate groups un-
til showers drove them indoors.
Early in the afternoon Coach
Wieman sent Joe Gembis, veteran
fullback, and Bill Brown, husky
center candidate, through a
lengthy drill in kicking goals from
placement. Following this he work-
ed with a number of the line candi-
dates, including Cragin, Sherwood,
Brown, Steinke, Poorman, Pom-
merening, Squier, Parker and
Kubicek in catching short kiks
and falling on a roiling ball.
Practice Re wr~ng Punts
In the meantime Coaches Yost
and Cappon put Capt. Rich, Gem-
bis, Bator, Wheeler, Holmes, Hozer,
Straub, Dansby, Dahlem, and
Avery through an extensive pass-
ing drill.
Later some of these candidates
took turns at catching punts from
the toe of Danny Holmes, while the
ends worked in pairs at covering
the man who received, the kicks.
Draveling, 200 pound end from Port
Huon, Truskowski, McCoy, Corn-
wall, Boden, and Orwig comprised'
the fankers who took part in these
Simultaneously with these drills,
the rest of the members of th
Varsity squad worked on funda-
mentals on South Ferry field with
considerable attention being devot-
ed to instructing the backs in
straight-arming and the other
methods of eluding would-be tack-
Hold Indoor Blocking Drill
When showers interrupted the
outdoor practice, the squad retired
to the field house where the
coaches worked with a select group
of line and backfield candidates on
With less than two weeks re-
maining before the opening game
Oct. 6 with Ohio Wesleyan, the per-
sonnel of the team that will face
the Battling Bishops is still largely
a mystery. This afternoon's scrim-
mage and that of Saturday, how-
ever, are expected to aid the
coaches materially in selecting the
starting combination.
Captain Rich has been showing
his old form in practice and is
practically a certain starter, al-
though his position will hing on
the disposition of the veteran full-
back Joe Gembis. If Gembis is
placed at the fullback post, Rich
will handle one of the halves,
otherwise he will probably be given
the fullback assignment. Stanley
Hole, whose passing and defensive
*play were the bright spots in the
Red backfield Saturday is another
player who will bear watching.
At present the quarterback selec-
tion appears to be a' tossup be-
tween Wheeler and Holmes, both
of whom are triple threat men,
with Straub as a third possibility.
The work of Bator, rangy sopho-
more back, in the initial scrim-
mage stamps him as a likely pros-
pect for one of the halfback berths.
The task of developing two cap-
able ends appears to be the great-
est problem facing the coaches at
present, although 'today's scrim-
mage should aid in its solution. Joe
Truskowski, regular center in 1926,
and Marsh Boden are the only ex-

perienced candidates. Ernie McCoy
