Perhaps of most moment to
Western Conference sport followers
in the way of Big Ten gridiron se-
lections are the annual choice of
Walter Eckersall, former Chicago
All-American quarterback. ,Quali-
fied as no other man is through his
active journalistic work in the I
sporting world along with his ef-
forts to keep in touch with things
through the medium of actually
refereeing the important middle
western games, the selections o
Eckersall are highly considered,
even in this day of countless "all
In selecting his 1929 edition of
Western Conference gridiron talent
Eckersall stresses the pronounced
ability of Purdue in emerging from
a rugged schedule, untied and un-
defeated. The famous Chicago
qearterback of other years praises
the versatile attack which Coach
Phelari has developedand contrasts
the past Purdue season with that
of other years when the Boilermak-
ers were virtually the doormat of
the Conference.
Praises Team Performance.
Eckersall in selecting his team
this year emphasizes the very ap-
parent lack of outstanding stars
and goes on to point out the im-
proved team play which featured
the play of the leading combina-
tion. A scarcity of end and
center material of outstanding
ability proved one of the hardest
features in drawing of this year's
selections, according to Eckersall.
Of most interest to Michigan
fans is the selection of Al Bovard,
veteran Wolverine pivot performer,
on the first All-Conference team.j
Bovard is Reliable.k {
In selecting Bovard, Eckersall
makes the following comment: "Al-1
though not a flashy player, the I
Wolverine was doing something all
the time. His passing on Michi-
gan's intricate formation was ac-
curate. He made his passes good be-
fore he paid any attention to his
opponents. Bovard played a roving
position on defense and covered a
lot of ground."
In speaking of the team as se-
lected as a whole, Eckersall says,
"this team is strong in ever depart-1
ment. Harmenson and W el1c h
would do the punting, and Glass-
gow or Harmeson do the placel
kicking. Harmeson could do most
of the passing. Bergherm would be
called upon to hit the line for short
gains and would be invaluable for s
blocking services. Defensively the
team has no weakness."c
Joe Gembis drew a halfback se-
lection on the second team while,
Simrall, Poorman, and Poe received
mention on "Eck's" third team.
PRINCETON--Chuck Logg, coach
of the Princeton crew, has added
new equipment to the Varsity row-
ing storehouse. These enable
