Freshman Team Called To. Show
Varsity Varied Attack
Used By Iowa
With a blanket of snow covering
Ferry field, Michigan's Varsityi
grid team was forced to confine
yesterday's practice session to a
light workout in Yost field house.
Joe Gembis was back in uniform as1
the players were given instruction
in breaking up Iowa plays. The big
fullback, although somewhat light-
er, gave no evidence of the afflic-
tion that has kept him out of the.
last two games.
Freshmen Show Iowa Plays.
A freshman eleven under the di-
rection of Coach JackyBlott,
demonstrated, the Iowa. plays for
the benefit of the Varsity squad.
Blott scouted the Hawkeyes last
week when they lost to Wisconsin.
In the dummy scrimmage, which
was necessitated by the narrow
confines of the field house, Mor-
rison of the freshmen, who im-
personated Mayes McClain, came
in for particular scrutiny. The
yearlings made some nice gains on,
double passes, with "McClain"
crashing the line through the holes
prepared for him.
The freshman backs who
assumed, the roles of Pape and
Glassgow also were given some at-r
tention. "Pape," the speed mer-
chant of the Hawkeye backfield,
cut through tackle. for considerable E
yardage. The Wolverines will need
further practice in breaking up
the Iowa formations in order to
develop an adequate defensive.
Cappon Back On Duty
Coach Cappon was back on duty
after several weeks' forced leave
due to an infection. The squad
came through the Michigan State
game without any injuries, a con-
dition in contrast to several years
back, when the Spartan game
usually took a large toll from the
Wolverine squad annually.
In today's drill the Varsity lined
up with Draveling and Truskowski
at the ends, Pommerening and
Squier at the -tackles, Steinke and
Poe at the guards, and Bovard at
center. The backfield was com-,

Monroe Runs Close Race
These men were the first seven
Wolverines to finish against the
State team last Saturday. Monroe
staged a close race with Brown, the
Spartan star, but was outdistanced
at the finish and took second
place. Wuerful who has been
showing up well this year surprised
followers of the team by finishing
up sixth.

According to Fieling H. Yost,c i-
rector of inter-collegiate athletics,
the rebuilt Coliseum will be ready
for faculty and student ice skaters
by Dec. 1. Director Yost made
this announcement yesterday, after
a careful survey of the plans and
the progress of the contractors.
The Coliseum, when it is complet-
ed, will be supplied with ice for
skating by the most modern ice
making plant that it is possible to
E construct. More than ten miles of
galvanized pipe have been installed
in the freezing system which will be
able to produce ice at all times, 24
hours a day, for six or more months
each year.
The inside of the Coliseum has
been practically rebuilt with new
plaster and paint, a complete new
heating plant, nore than 2,000 seats
for spectators, and an insulating
material which has been built into
the end walls and roof will prevent
heat from coming into the building
on warmer days.
Land surrounding the Coliseum
has been graded and sodded, with
tennis courts constructed on the re-
maining property belonging to the
athletic association.
