THREE "B" PLAYERS' Pro-Hockey Leagues

Transfer Geistert, Htighes, Cooky
To Varsity Squad; Play
Against Freshmen

jegin rreparations
For Present Season
Manager Jack Adams and his
Detroit Cougars, after several
strenuous weeks of training, are
rapidly getting themselves into
form for the inaugural game of the
National Hockey league, with the
champion New York Rangers, to be
played at Olympia, Thursday eve-

While the men who played
against the Middies took a day off
from practice. Coach Wieman
tried out the three newest addi-
tions to the "A" squad, Geistert,
Hughes, and Cook, in a Varsity
second team-freshman game dur-
ing yesterday's practice session.
No Injuries Saturday
The Varsity seems to have earn-!
ed a day of rest by its work against
Illinois and the Navy, for yester-
day was the first time the regulars
had been excused from practice
since the beginning of the season.
After the string of grueling games
and the long train ride from Balti-
more, the Varsity appeared to need'
at least one day to recover from the
bumps and bruises the Middies
handed out. No one was injured in
the Navy tilt, and with the assur-
ance that Gembis' condition does
not warrant an operation for ap-
pendicitis and that the big fullback
may be able to report later in the
week, the Maize and Blue squad
should be in perfect physical con-
dition bythe time of the Michigan
State game.-
It is probable that Coach Wie-.
man will take little chance of hav-
ing any of his regulars injured be-1
fore the all important Iowa contest,
and will spare the first team as
much as possible in the State tilt,
since the Spartans, who succumbed
to the Univrersity of Detroit 30-0
Saturday, should provide little.
trouble for the greatly improved,
Michigan eleven. A light workout
will be -in order for the Varsity to-f
morrow, when a freshman team,1
tutored by Coach Veenker who has
scouted State, will show the Spar-
tan plays to the regualrs.
Geistert Moved To Varsity
The transfer of Geistert and
Cook to the "A" squad came as a
result of their fine Work against
Alma in the Junior Varsity game
here Saturday. Geistert, dimin-
utive quarterback, personally ac-
counted for three of the Wolverines
five touchdowns, gaining through
the Alma eleven almost at will,
while Cook was a potent factor in
the Michigan defense, which stop-
ped the highly touted Alma plung-
ing attack time after time. Hughes
was taken on the Navy trip with
the Varsity due to Gembis' illness,

ning, November 15.
The Cougars and Olympics have
engaged in a few practice tilts dur-
ing the past week, and Manager
Adams is confident both teams
have derived much benefit from
these games and with another week
of hard practice the Cougars will
be on edge for the opener.
Hockey fans will see a number
of new faces on the Cougar roster
this season with the addition of
Herbie Lewis, Bobby Connors,
Jimmy Herberts and "Dolly" Dol-
In the person of Herbie Lewis,
Manager Adams has obtained one
of the flashiest center ice men
turned out in the American asscia-
tion, during the past few years, and
he is expected to put the punch in
the Cougar line-up this year.
Jimmy Herberts, who has shown
himself to be a performer of the
first magnitude was purchased
from Toronto, for $15,000, and Jack
Arbour, a defense man. He came
liere highly touted) "and without
doubt will strengthen the team on
its attack. He is a center.
Bobby Connors, flashy forward,
with the Olympics last season,
needs no introduction to fans who
saw him in action with the minor
league team last season.
The goalie's net will be guarded
by "Dolly" Dolson, who was ob-
tained from Stratford, champions
!of the Canadian-Pro league last
season. He has performed very
well during the practice games and
( will be an asset to the team's cham-
pionship aspirations.{

field in many a fall session. The
Delta Sigs, whose personel was
composed of several high school
basket ball stars, took advantage
of the rule which allows the player
to either kick or pass the ball.
During the first and most of the
second periods, while they had the
ball in their possession, the 200
hundred or more shivering spec-
tators were treated to a rare ex-
hibition of passing.
Working on the principle that
the foot is mightier than the hand,
the Sigma Alpha Mu team began
kicking the ball around in such a
manner that the Delta Sigs had a
difficult time, getting their hands
on the ball at all, and finally the
winners came from behind to re-
tain the lead until the final whistle.
Yesterday marked the second
time that the Jewish boys have
taken the cup given by the Intra-
mural department each year to the
winner of the inter-fraternity
speedball tournament, also having
won the cup last fall.
The Intramural department an-
nounces that 56 teams have been
entered in the inter-fraternity
swimming tournament. To enter,
a fraternity must make up a team
of five men, who are required to
compete in five events, including a
game of water polo. The towing
is to be conducted in the pool in
the new intramural building.

Following their decisive victory
over Alma college Saturday, Coach
Ray Courtwright gave his "B" team
a rest yesterday in reward for their
efforts. However, the week prom-
ises to be a busy one, as the line-up
will have to be altered to the loss
of three players.
With the promotion of Morris
Hughes, Mike Geistert, and
Tom Cooke to the Varsity squad,
Coaches Courtwright and Brown
are presented with the task of find-
ing players to replace them. This
many be difficult to do, especially
in the case of Geistert. He played
the best game of his collegiate car-
eer against Alma, doing the major
share of the ball carrying and gain-
ing more than 100 yards from
scrimmage. This was all the more
remarkable in view of the bad con-
ditions underfoot.
Two Backs Are Transferred
Hughes was lost to the junior
varsity before the Alma game, as
he went to Baltimore in place of
Joe Gembis. His position was
capably filled. by Jake Widman,
who made several nice gains and
did the kicking in Saturday's con-
test. Don Wilson will probably re-
turn to the squad this week, filling
the vacancy left by Geistert. This
will leave a strong backfield, with
Lytle and Frank Brown completing
the quartet. Cooke'ssberth at
tackle will likely be assigned to
Toledo University will provide
the competition for the "B" team
this Saturday, the final game of the
seeason being scheduled for the
Ohio city. To date the junior var-
sity has won three of six games
played, so this contest will deter-
mine whether the team finishes
the season above .500.
Show Strong Offese
A strong offense, lacking hereto-
fore, was revealed against Alma,
with Geistert the hub of the attack.
The line also played well, holding
for downs on the Michigan one-
yard line in the first quarter. Sullo,
Bill Brown, and Cooke were im-
portant factors in this stand.
Straight football accounted for the
Michigan gains, trick plays and
passes being resorted to on but few
