SGRID SEASON IN
FLASH OF SPIRIT
(Special to The Daily)
MADISON, Wis., Sept. 22.-The
best thing about the first week's
football practice of the University
of Wisconsin squad is not the
weight and power of the line candi-
dates nor the speed and versatil-
ity of the backs but rather-the
splendid spirit, the zest and enthus-
iasm of the players, according to
,Head Coach Glenn Thistlethwaite.
A year ago everyone was talking
about a possible championship, fig-
uring that Wisconsin could pick up
its game, right where it was drop-
ped at the closeofethe 1928 season
when the Badgers finished as run-
ners-up for the title. Over-confi-
deuce quickly developed in the,
squad, despite the best efforts of
the coaching staff to get the men
down to earth.
This fall a different, and far
healthier, feeling prevails. Wiscon-
sin ended last season at the bottom
of the Big Ten ladder, with only a
single conference victory-that over
Chicago-to its credit. This fall
every man on the squad seems im-
bued with a spirit of determination,
a willingness to work to the limit
and a modesty more in keeping with
the Badgers' chances.
Thistlethwaite and his aides
handed out the hardest first week's
work this fall that any Wisconsin
squad has had in many a year and
the players "ate it up" and shouted
Gehrig And Terry Win
193.0 Batting Crowns
With the pennant races in both
ma, or leagues rapidly nearing a
conclusion it appears almost a cer-
tainty that the 1930 batting cham-
pions will be "Columbia Lou" Geh-
rig, in the junior circuit, and Bill
Terry, in the senior group. In the
few remaining games it would be
.almost impossible for either of
these sluggers to be overhauled al-
though they have been having hard
fights all year.

Flashing a brilliant passing at-
tack, along with a fair exhibition of
open field running, the Michigan
Varsity football team took the
measure of the third team in the
opening scrimmage of the year held
last Saturday afternoon on Ferry
field. At the same time the te/m
composed of second stringers
walked all over a group of fourth
stringers, largely due to the great
all-round work of Harry Newman.
After the first quarter, which
failed to provide anything to mar-
vel at in the way of attack, the
Varsity, behind the capable passing
of Tessmer and the nice running
of Hudson, was able to score almost
at will against the makeshift team
that opposed them, the final score
finally being 26-0. Even without
the services of Captain Ducky Sim-
rall, Morrison, or Auer, the Varsity
was at all times the superior team
of the two.
No score was made in the first
period, but in the second quarter
the Varsity sailed through the third
stringers for three touchdowns.
Hudson swung around end for 13
yards before being forced outside
on the scrubs' 28 yard line. On the
next play he went straight through
the center of the line for the re-
maining 28 yards for the first
touchdown of t arr Cox and
Hewitt made the nlext 'tW' 6tu'h
downs, while Hudson again went
over for the fourth.
With the opening of school next
week however they will have only
one session a day for the remainder
of the season. The fundamentals of
the game were stressed in early
practices with blocking, tackling,
passing and running all coming in
for their share of attention. The
main problem that faces the
coachesis bthat of uncovering a
center trio of sufficient caliber to
successfully meet Big Ten opposi-
tion. Last year's center andguardsI

Ends Look Good
Hewitt and Daniels appear to
have the inside tracks in the race
for the end positions as both are
experienced men with ability both
on offense and defense. Daniels,}
in addition to being an excellent l
pass receiver, is a capable tosser,
and will add further deception to
the attack if used in this capacity.
However Williamson, Shea and Sik-
kenga are still in the running, and
may have something to say as to
the occupants of the wing positions.
The Wolverines should have one
of the strongest tackle pairs in the1
middle west with Auer and Dravel- }
ing in action. These men are both
veterans, and should team up in
fine fashion. Both have shown
better form in practice this year
than they have ever known before,
and with the opening of the con-'
ference season should be ready to'
go. Gitman and Clohset are other
outstanding tackle candidates.
