Lateral Passing Plays Stressed
as Backs Are Run Through
Dummy Scrimmage.
Blott, Morgan, Steinke Drill
Linemen in Tackling and
Blocking Principles.
More than fifty would-be mem-
bers of the 1931 Varsity football
squad, good, bad, and indifferent,
cavorted bround the south end of
Ferry field yesterday afternoon un-
der the inspiration to activity of a
chilling northeast gale while Field-
ing H. Yost himself turned out to
get a little hint of the possibilities
for another winning eleven. His
eyes twinkled as the backs would
make connections on a play or as
one of the linemen came through
with a particularly good tackle.
krhe chill winds, however, did not
keep Coach Kipke from snapping
the backs through some plays be-
hind the line and "*rking on a
short lateral pass with the leston
boys and Petoskey carying the
un'easonable pigskin while a bevy1
of ends lead by Stan Hozer at-
tempted to get through the inter-
ference. Erilliant yellow helmets1
stood out over the field as the whole
squad went through some rather
rough workouts for the second ses-
sion on the spring schedule, but on-°
ly a few bad ankles and stiff joints
were in evidence after Bill West1
had done his best to iron out the
effects of a winter of inactivity for
most of the men.
While Kipke and Cappon were
working on the back field material,1
over at the tackling dummy was;
Coach Jack Blott giving the boys
the lowdown on some real "shoe-
strings" and side tackles and he
was getting a remarkable lot of
power out of some of the heavies
who, if they were good enough,
could provide an insurmountable
mass of humanity on any forward"
Coaches Morgan and Steinke also
ran another group of 1 i n e m a n
through a little blocking session
that knocked all the chill out of
many an anatomy. Now and then1
Marcovsky or Hewitt lashed out
with a bit of the old form, but as1
a rule the boys were a little crude
as yet. The squad as a whole does-
n't look so bad for the first allot-
ment of material, for tall, short,E
lean, or fat, the whole crew is put-~
ting plenty of pep into the work-
outs and if that means anything itt
won't be such a bad season after
Then just to rub it in a little bit,
over came Capt. Sol Hudson and
Rod Cox, who are taking it easy
in baseball and track, to look on
the veritable massacre to which the
gridders were being subjected. It
must have even made Kipke con-
scious of the contrast for "All in"
