Kicking came in for its share'
of time, with Holmes and Simrall'
handling the ball behind a dummy'
line. The backs also were utilized
in blocking off would-be tacklers,
with Gembis, Wheeler, and Hozer
protecting the kicker. Holmes sent
some nice spirals down the field,
where Straub, McBride and Simrall
alternated in catching the ball.
Draveling, Orwig, and Boden
were given a workout in getting
down under punts, the coaches em-
phasizing speed among the flank-,
men. Squier came in for punish-
ment when he broke through the
dummy line several times to block
the kick. With Simrall doing the
punting, Holmes was given an op-
portunity to catch the oval.
"Illini" Passes Bother
While the s e c o n d string men'
went through a defensive scrim-
meage against Coach Veenker's "Ill-

particular attention.

through signal practice. Truskow-

Pommerening and Hulbert at the
tackles, Steinke and Poe at the
guards and Cragin at center for

warriors onto the turf of the

the Varsity. The backfield was
made up of Simrall, Dahlem, Gem-
bis, and Captain Rich.
B Squad Works On Pass
On account of his head injury,
Pommerening alternated with Poor-
man at the left tackle post. Bo-
vard, Totzke, and Cornwell were
the only players who did not take
an active part in the practice. All
are recovering from injuries. Mc-
Bride replaced Dahlem for a short
time during the signal drill.
Perfecting a pass defense to be
used against the Western State
Normal eleven Saturday took up
Jnost of the time of the Junior
Varsity yesterday. Coaches Court-
right and Brown hurled long and
short passes to the ends while a
backfield composed of Widman,
Wilson, Geistert, and Lytel at-
tempted to bat them down' or in-
tercept the tosses.
Earl Martineau is reported to
have a strong eleven on the field
to represent the Kalamazoo Normal
school and the coaches are desirous
of sending the Junior- Varsity into
the fray in the best shape possible.
After the -long drill with the pass,
the squad was split up and each
man given individual instruction in
the fundamentals of the game.
The team was not at its full
strength yesterday since a number
of the players could not attend on
account of classes in the Univer-

No less than 10 of the men
on the present squad were
numbered among the Indian
g r i d warriors who invaded
Ferry field in 1926. These in-
clude Capt. Butch Nowack in
the line, and Frosty Peters and
Cowboy Nichol in the backfield.
The other invaders -of two sea-
sons ago who did not participate
in the contest are Timm and Hick-
man, backs, and McClure, Ring-
quist, Ongley, Wheeler and Rich-
man, line candidates. Of this num-
ber Nowack, Timm and Richman
are the men who have been playing
regularly this year.E
Other veteran material from
the great team of sophomores
who captured the title last year
includes Crane, Weitz, Gordon,
Jolley, and Deimling, linemen,
and IMills, Stussey, Humbert,
and Walker, backs.
One of the outstanding backs on
the Orange and Blue roster is Fritz
Humbert, husky substitute of the
1927 team who is showing the way
to the other Conference fullbacks
this season by holding the lead in
Big Ten scoring.l
Another notable is Russell
Crane, who proved to be one
of the real surprises of .last
season, . being nominated for
all-American honors by Grant-
land Rice.

The injury sustained by Kes
Deiniling, veteran flanker, in
the Northwestern game Satur-
day will keep him out of the
tilt with the Wolverines and
Zuppke's search for a capable
substitute has apparently re-
sulted in the selection of Lewis,
a 200 pound sophomore, to fill
the gap.
Only three of the 11 men who
faced the Illini on their own field
last year will be in the starting.
lineup for the Wolves, Bovard,
Pommerening, and Rich being the
only regulars available.
Del Whittle replaced Louie
Gilbert in the Michigan front
last fall when the latter was
suddenly taken ill just before
the game, but Whittle is still
suffering from the leg injury
that has troubled him all fall
and there is little hope of him
seeing service.
The addition of big Bruce Hul-
bert to the right side of the Michi-
gan line gives the Wolverines their,
heaviest forward wall in years. His1
238 pounds boosts the formerly
heavy line to the average of 195
pounds per man, a figure that
compares favorably with that of
any line in the Middle West.
Upon the shoulders of the
Maize and Blue forwards will
rest the great assignment of
