Joe Gembis

Team May Miss Defensive Play of
Gembis; Place Kicker Drafted
From Junior Varsity
Michigan's chances for a victory
over the formidable Navy eleven
were given a severe jolt yesterday
afternoon when Coach Tad Wieman
announced that Joe Gembis, vet-
eran fullback would be unable to
accompany the squad to Baltimore
due to an attack of appendicitis.
The chunky backfield veteran
complained of a slight irritation.
following Wednesday's stenuous
practice session and was taken to
the University hospital, where his
case was diagnosed as a mild at-
tack of apendicitis. The team doc-
tor advised that Gembis should re-
main here instead of making the.

Just how much the loss of Gem-
bis will hurt Michigan's chances is
problematical, but, the team is cer-
tain to miss his steady defensive
play in backing up the line, as well
as his line-plunging ability. It is
also possible that his place-kicking
prowess would have come in handy
against the Middy team as was
the case a week ago in the Illinois
battle. Alvin Hughes whose toe has
been an important threat in the
offense of the Junior Varsity has
been taken along to Baltimore to
fill the need of a place kicker.
Coach Wieman announced that
with the exception of Gembis the
Michigan line-up would probably
remain the same as- the one that
faced the Zuppkemen in the new
stadium a week ago. Draveling and
Truskowski at ends, Hulbert and
Pommerening, tackles; Steinke and
Poe, guards, and Cragin, center
form the forward wall, while Cap-
tain Rich, Simrall, Dalham and
Hozer round out the backfield.
Hozer May Start
Stanley .Hozer who was an-
nounced as the likely starter in the'
place of Joe Gembis, is a Muskee-I
gon product and a former team-
mate of Bennie Oosterbaan. While]
he lacks .Gembis' weight and expe-
rience, he is a steady defensive'
player and one of the best block-1
ing backs on the squad. His pres-
ence in the line-up should make

Fighting to cinch their hold on
the championship in the triangular
series of games between the fresh-
men, physical eds, and the sopho-
mores, the yearling eleven played
the physical eds to a scorless tie
on old Ferry field yesterday after-
noon. This game has opened up a
possibility of a tie for the title be-
tween these two teams in event
that the physical eds win their sec-
ond game with the sophomores and
the freshmen lost to the second
year eleven.
Yesterday's game disclosed no
stars and no high lights. Most of
the first half the elevens see-sawed
back and forth between the thirt
yard lines in unsuccessful attempts
by both teams to invade scoring
teritory. Neither team used many
passes in this period, resorting to
straight football for small gains.
In the second half the fresh-
men intercepted a pass which led
to an advance that the physical
eds were only able to stop on their
own nine yard line. From that
time on the physical eds were, bat-
tling to keep the freshmen out of
scoring territory, and were partially
successful in that the yearlings
never again threatened the goal
Late in the final quarter both
elevens opened up on passes which,
with the exception of two beautiful
heaves on the part of the year-
lings, did not alter the aspect of a
slow game. A strong element of
the uncertain entered the game in
the last minutes of play when semi
darkness settled over the field and
the ball merged into blackness, ap-
pearing again in almost any sec-
tion of the field ahead of the line.

Practically evey Big Ten team
will go into this week-end's battle
minus the services of one or more
of their star performers. As the
season.approaches its close, the in-
juries which were unusally few
earlier in tie year continue to crop
out with alarming rapidity.
Minnesota has probably been
the hardest hit of any of the
Conference outfits and will face
the Indiana eleven tomorrow

which witnessed the injury of Big
Nag Nagurski, the Gophers have
lost the services of Captain Gibson,
steller guard, with an arm injury
and Pulkrabeck, his running mate.
The latter was injured in the
Northwestern game last week and
may be out for the rest of the sea-
Both Iowa and Ohio State
will be weakened considerably
by the loss of star performers.
The Hawks will have to get
along without Mike Farroh,
star halfback and forward pass
receiver who is still handicap-
ped by a lame back.
Coach Jack Wilce is forced with
the difficult task of replacing two
of his best linemen, Fred Barratt,
sensational sophomore center, and
Leo Raskowski, all-American tac-
kle. Raskowski has been on the
sidelines since the Indiana game,
while Barratt was hurt in the
strenuous tussle with Princeton
last Saturday.
Illinois is likewise hard pres-
sed for a back of Timm's calibre
to replace the fleet ball toter
who was injured in the Michi-
gan tilt a week ago, and the
loss of Kes Demiling, the week
previous, has caused Coach
Zuppke no end of concern about
the protection of the right
flank of the forward wall.
Maroon hopes for a good show-
ing against Wisconsin have been
greatly bouyed up by the return of

Hughes Promoted To Varsity Squad;
Widman Will Take Punting
With the loss of Al Hughes and
Don Wilson, half of the regular "B"
team backfield, Coach Ray Court-
wright will be forced to rely on re-
serve players to carry the brunt of
the attack against Alma tomorrow.
Hughes has been promoted to the
"A" squad, going to 'Baltimore in
place of Joe Gembis, star place
kicker. Wilson has been called out
of town.
It is likely that Brown will get
the halfback post in the absence
of Hughes. He calred the signals
against the Ohio State reserves.
Widman, Lytle, and Geistert will
complete the junior varsity back-
Hughes has been a principal fac-
tor in the "B" team offense so far,
showing' especially well on line
plunges. Geistert and Lytle will be
called on to carry the running at-
tack against Alma. Hughes is also
a capable place kicker, scoring field
goals against Ohio State and Ypsi-
lanti. Widman will do the punting
in Saturday's game, a job he has
handled before, alternating with
Hughes in that capacity.
