red a severe loss during the sum-

am of 64 Candidates to
rough Two Scrimmages
ing Week's Drill


Beginning their second week of
'eparatory drill, the Wolverine
otball squad, reduced to 64 can-
dates by the first and only cut
the season, went through an in-
nsive' drill yesterday afternoon
an effort to polish off some of
e rough spots uncovered .in. Sat-
day's scrimmage.
Due to the fact that regular
asses have begun in the Univer-
y, the daily work quota for the
uad has been reduced to a single
o-hour session, which will be
ld in the afternoon. Coach
elding H. Yost announced yester-
y that the second scrimmage of
e year will be held this after-
on or tomorrow and the third
. Saturday.
30 Teach Fundamentals
The week's work will consist
rgely in drill on fundamentals
.d individual instruction at the
,nds of the several coaches, with
e added possibility that a little
>re attention will be devoted to
ensive tactics than was the case
t week.
Saturday's scrimmage, while it
s marred by numerous serious
splays, was. a decided improve-
ent over the first practice game
ld last year. The teams were
cessarily limited offensively be-
use of the fact that no plays
re given out until Friday after-
on, but both showed real prom-
on the defense.
Bator ,Reveals Talent
The lack of team play revealed
Saturday's practice tilt was
gely offset by the individual per-
rmances of a number of the can-
lates, and with a little drill in
imwork both teams should show
rked improvement.
Kalman Bator, promising sopho-
re halfback from Detroit, dis--
guished himself Saturday by
fine all-round play. In addi-
n to turning in the best ex-
ition of ball carrying of the day,
took a turn at bearing the kick-
; duties with Wheeler and
[he veterans Capt. George Rich.

mer months when Edwin J. Mather,
for nine years head basketball
coach here, died, August 25, at his
home in Ann Arbor. His death,
which came at the age of 41, was
caused by cancer and ended an ill-
ness of 18 months.
During his career at Michigan,
Mather lifted basketball to a high
plane, leading the way to three
Conference court titles and bring-
ing the quintet into the first divis-
ion in the other years. His work
brought him the distinction of
being one of the best basketball
coaches in the country.

NEW 'YORK, Sept. 24- Gibby'
Welch, bgreatbroken-field runner
for the University of Pittsburgh
last season, has signed to play pro-.
fessional football with the New
York Yankees of the National foot-
ball league. Announcement that
Welch had turned pro was made
by -C.-C., Pyle, owner pf the Yankees.
Pyle said Welch would fill the spot
in the Yankee lineup formerly tak-
en care of by Red Grange.
Hall Wrastler, who has been
playing well at shortstop for Indi-
anapolis all season, will join the
Pittsburgh Pirates soon.


MADISON, Sept. 24-Wisconsin's
chances for a high rating in Big
Ten football this fall depend to a
great extent upon the improvement
of the 15 veterans from last year.
Most of the experienced members
of Glenn Thistlethwaite's Cardinal
squad are juniors, having played
their first Varsity ball as sopho-
mores during 1927. Cuisinier, Haye ,
McKaskle, Warren and Rebholz are
all about to start their second sea-
son in the Western Conference. Pi-
nish is a senior and will finish this.
"Bo" Cuisinier, a stocky youngs-
ter from Chicago, is set for a good
year in the Badger backfield. In
early workouts the midget back has
shown better form than any of his
competitors. Even though he is the
smallest man on Wisconsin's ros-
ter, Cuisinier is a finished blocker,
a clever open field runner and pass-
es well. Thistlethwaite has shifted
him from half to quarterback to
replace ex-Capt. Crofoot, who grad-
Neil Hayes of Mooseheart, Ill.,
is another halfback who is being
groomed for the field general's post.


Ninety Candidates Report tq
Coaches Fisher and ;Oosterbaan
for initial Workout
With over 90 candidates for the
first yearling football practice,
prospects for a stronger freshman
team than Michigan has possessed
in the last two years look unusual-
ly bright, according to Coach Ray
The yearling squad appears su-
perior to those of the last two
years in both quantity and quality.
With an increase of about 15 over
the turnout for the first practice
in 1927, it Is expected that late
comers -will increase the total
squad to about 25 men candidates.
Although the backs do not ap-
pear up to the standard of former
years, the linemen and ends are
larger and heavier than the usual
freshman crop, and should contain
many Varsity prospects. The first
day was spent largely in limbering
up exercises for the entire squad.
The linemen were put through a
long drill on stance, while the ends
were trained to use their arms.
The backs went through sidestep-
ping and tackling :practice.
Of the 516 plebes at the United
States Academy, 260 have reported
