Gembis Polishes up Place Kicks;
Norm Laniels Continues to
Practice Punting.
Michigan's newly abbreviated
gridiron squad was sent through a
Tong aigd ardous session yesterday
afternoon with the gates of old
Ferry field closed to the passesby.
Taskmaster Harry Kipke and his
staff of assistants gave evidence
that Michigan will be ready to
open a bag of passing tricks against
H{arvard when the :easterners in-
vade Ann Arbor a week from Sat-
urday. Straight football has been
the only offensive play which Mich-
igan has shown any aptitude for in
the games this year.
But there promises to be a change
in things when against the wear-,
ers of the.Crimson. Working in the
shelter of closed gates, the Michi-
gan coach drilled his performers in
the art of scoring plays whieh bear
little -resemblance to the straight
variety- of play which the Wolver-
ines have shown this year.
Individual drills saw Joe Gembis
polishing up his talented place
knicking knack from various an-
gles. Director Yost was again in
evidence pointing out the high
points of the art of punting to
Norm Daniels who spent most of!
the afternoon entertaining Ducky
Simrall with his high driving punts.'
The blond Wolverine safety man
turned in beautiful exhibitions of
handling the tricky spirals.
The entire "A" squad, depleted
by the removal of Holmes, Gitman,
Bergman, Wills, Grinell, §ikkenga,
and Brown to the "B" team, after
a short drill in the fundamentals,
went into an extended dummy
Off tackle and guard thrusts
proved the order of this session,
with Wheeler, Gembis, Morrison,
Hudson, and Wilson performing
the ball carrying duties. Acting
Coach Harvey Emery was much in
evidence and was able to give his'
forwards first hand infoirrration
with the tackles and guards com-
ing in for most of the instruction.
