WOLVERINE TANKMEN TO MEET FORT WA I NE Y.1

I.C. A.

'DUCKY' SIMRALL
PROMISES TO BE
POPULAR LEADER
"Ducky" Simrall, diminutive Wol-
verine quarterback, has been
chosen by his team-mates to cap-
tain the 1930 Michigan Varsity;
football eleven. In making this se-
lection, they have chosen one of
the best-liked, and grittiest play-
ers ever to wear the Maize and Blue
of Michigan. "Ducky" is one of the
most tireless workers on the squad,
and plays with enough spirit and
dash to inspire the men to putf
forth their best efforts for him.
Simrall is the Pommerening of
1930, as far as total playing time
goes. The Wolverines played on
eight Saturdays during the season
just past, which would ordinarily,
include 480 minutes of actual play-
ing time. Yet the new captain-elect
engaged in 490 minutes of play, due
to the fact that he participated in,
both games of a double header
with Albion and Mt. Union on the
opening day of the year. In thoseI
two contests, Simrall played for 70
minutes, enabling him to take part
in 490 minutes of play throughout
the season. Since that first Satur-
day, "Ducky" at no time was taken
out of a game.
In build Simrall is one of the
smallest, and in age he is one of
the youngest, of recent Wolevrine1
captains. He tips the beam at only
162 pounds, and stands five feet ten,
inches in height. In spite of his
lask of weight he is one of the1
hardest players on the squad, only,
one time-out being taken for him

TRIO OF VETERAN MANY IMPORTANT GAMES LISTED
SUADSER UCLEUS AS TURKEY DAY GRID FEATURES

.14 1

By Edward L. Warner.
With the 1929 grid campaign
ending this week except for a few
post-season games, discussions are
frequent as to which team in these
United States can be rated at the
top of the heap. This is a question
which never can be satisfactorily
settled due to the vagaries of the
schedule and the practical impos-.
sibility of choosing one eleven out
of 500 or more college squads
throughout the length and breadth
of the nation.
At present there are only
five major teams that have sur-
vived the present season un-
beaten and untied. They are
Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Pur-
due, Tulane, and Tennessee. In
addition there are several teams
representing smaller institu-
tions that have unsullied rec-
ords, but cannot be considered
in line for the mythical nation-
al championship due to the fact
that they compiled their records
against a lesser class of corn-
petition. These include Western
Maryland, Utah, Ohio Univer-
sity, and Texas Christian.
