Of Iowa Plays As Bt ?s Have
Trouble With Short Passes
While the Varsity backs were
given their first look at Michigan
State passing formations during
the practice session yesterday aft-
ernoon, the linemen were put
through a drill on defense against
Iowa plunging plays as shown to
them by a freshman eleven tutored
by Coach Jack Blott, who scouted
the Havikeyes.
The Iowa attack, as diected by
Coach Blott, centers around Mayes
McClain, the giant Indian half-
back, who plowed through the
highly touted Ohio line for con-
sistent gains last Saturday. Mc-
Lain is used either to carry the
ball through the center or guard
positions, or to open holes in the
line for the fleet Iowa halfbacks,
Glassgow and Armil. Glassgow
carries the ball on most of the
Hawkeye end run and off tackle
plays, although both McLain and
Armii take care of some of this

iti is evident that Coach Wieman
expects the chief Michigan State
threat to comle through the air, for
although the Spartan running at-
tack was disregarded, the first
string backs were put through a
long drill on defense against State
passes as executed by a group of

Entering upon their next to last
week of preparation for the final
run . of the year, the Freshman
cross-country squad continues to
work out strenuously on the custo-
mary three days alloted them for
practice each week.
Following their regular weekly
custom, the first year men jogged
out last Saturday morning over
the three and a half mile course
up- along Geddes heights. A light
fall of snow had made the going
rather heavy in spots, and tended
to slow up the runners to a cer-
tain extent. Despite the weather
handicap several of the men turn-
ed in rather good .time for the
Bandfield running a rather re-
markable race, led the rest of the
held to the tape, in the fairly fast
time of 15:54. Ransford who fin-
: shed in second position, lowered
his time of the preceding week by
eome twenty seconds. Cook fol-
lowed Ransford to the finish, while
Whitsit and Shelton captured the
remaining two places.
Final arrangements have been
definitely made concerning the
date of the final run, with Friday,
Nov. 23, being selected for the
performance. The change from
the original plan of holding the
run on Saturday, Nov. 24, was due
to the fact that both coaches and
men desired to watch the Varsity
in their meet.
With the date for the final run
set up to Friday of next week, the1
time for the last trial run to be
held this week was also moved up I
a day to allow the freshman squad;
to witness the invading Spartans
meet the Varsity harriers.
Upon merit of their work, Coach
Hoyt, freshman track coach, will
select the most promising of the

squad to begin practice along in

Iowa Has Three
Stars Who Can
RunBall Well
Three reasons why the University
of Iowa football team enters the
November drive as a serious con-
tender for the Western conference
championship are Pape, McLain
and Armill.
Oran H. Pape, sophomore half-
back, who is tied with Hovde of
Minnesota as high scorer of the Big
Ten with 48 points in six games
has gained 418 yards from scrim-
mage to lead the Hawkeye yard-
age-makers, and yet has not play-
ed half of the time.
Ranking second to Pape in terri-
tory gained is Mayes W. McLain, the
Indian fullback. His driving power
is a byword in the Conference, and
his punting is above average.
