Crowley Has 13 Lettermen as
Nucleus of Grid Machine.
With the University of Michigan
dominating the spotlight, Coach
Crowley at Michigan State is hap-
py over the 13 lettermen returning
to form a nucleus for another
strong team.
Every position will see a letter-
man of last year's team returning
but Coach Crowley has intimater
that State's success hangs on the
development of the reserve squad.
Crowley invited 54 men back in
an effort to fill the needed reserve
positions. Quarterback will be
Crowley's major first-team worry.
Roger Grove, triple threat man who
graduated in June, will be missed in
the all-important position. Joe Ko-
watch may be revamped into a
quarterback from fullback.
McNutt, who starred on the fresh-
man eleven last season, is expected
to take care of the fullback job. Bob
Monnett and Eliowitz are other re-
Stuxning backs who won their letters
last year.
Wally Weber Joins
Wolverine Coaching
Staff as Assistant
This fall for the first time since
1926 a figure which 'had become a
familiar fixture on Ferry field is
missing, and in its place is that of
a newcomer to the Wolverine coach-
ing staff. Geogre Veenker is the
man no longer seen amid the activ-
ity of Michigan grid preparations,
and Wally Weber is the latest addi-
tion to the list of coaches.
The lure of the gridiron caused
Veenker, who had been head coach
of basketball for three years, to
transfer his connections to Iowa
State where he has been appointed
chief mentor of the football team.
During his first year as basketball
coach of the Wolverines his team
won theConference championship.

Looms as Future United States'
Hope to Annex Davis Cup 1
From Foreign Stars.'
For years ,sports writers and ten-3
nis critics all over the country have
been bewailing the fact that the
Davis Cup, the international ten-
nis trophy, has rested securely on
French soil despite the most de-
termined onslaughts of the U. S.-
invaders. ,
The stumbling-block for the Am-
aricans in these contests has been
the absence of a really outstand-
ing player who could defeat the
best French net star. Lacoste, the
redoubtable Frenchman who first
challenged Tilden's world suprem-
acy in the sport, filled the bill for
the Europeans during several sea-
sons. With Lacoste's withdrawal
because of ill health, Henri Co-
chet, almost equally formidable,
stepped into the ace's shoes and he
has been mawing down the best
players of the. United States ever
since, aided by such stars as Bor-
otra and Brugnon.
But with the close of the Men's
National tourney at Forest Hills a
few weeks ago, new hope 'arises for
American possession of the coveted
international cup. Ellsworth Vines,
a rangy 19-year-old Californian
won that tournament by virtue of
his defeat of Francis X. Shields,
Fred Perry, and George Lott, Jr.,
on three successive days.
Vines' play possesses that vital
spark, a driving aggression, which
has been lacking in the play of the

Seeks Field General.
One of the hardest jobs facing
the Wildcat coach is the develop-'
ment of a quarterback. This posi-
tion, which was handled in fine
style during the past three seasons
by Lee Hanley, is wide open at
present. Two men are being groom-
ed for the task of signal calling.
They are Al Moore and Will Lewis,
two senior backs, who have per-
formed as halfbacks in the past.
Moore is a fine ball carrier while
Lewis ranks as one of the best
kickers and blockers on the squad.
Four positions in the line are due
to be filled with new men. The
jobs left open by graduation are
center, left guard and both right
and left ends. These positions were
handled last year by Bob Clark,
center, Red Woodworth, guard and
Frank Baker and Larry Oliphant,
ends. All four ranked among the
best at their positions in the con-
ference last season, while Baker
and Woodworth won all-American
honors as well.

strength to gain the titles.
Grove Is Big Factor.
"Lefty" Grove, ace left hander of
the Mackmen's staff and one of the
greatest southpaws of all baseball
history, has been one of the biggest
factors in the success of the White
Elephants. In addition to the fire-
ball artist Mack has George Earn-
shaw and "Rube" Walberg, who
have also turned in brilliant per-
formances throughout the entire
season. Leroy Mahaffey, in his sec-
ond year in the big show, has de-
veloped into a winning hurler and
two veterans, Eddie Rommell and
Waite Hoyt, have won their quota
of games. Hoyt, purchased in mid-
season from Detroit, took a new
lease on life in an Athletic uniform'
and has been pitching good ball.
Hank McDonald, a new member of
Mack's staff, has made a satisfac-
tory showing in his fist year.
Gabby Street has a mound staff
that is even more impressive than
the Athletics' array of hurling stars.
Burleight Grimes, "Wild Bill" Hall-
ahan, Jesse Haines, and Sylvester
Johnson all are veterans who can
be counted upon to turn in good'

comer, Paul Derringer, has taken
the National League by storm this
season and appears to be one of the
Redbirds' best bets on the hurling
Open Dates Plentiful.
What advantage the Cardinals
have in the number of starting
pitchers, however, is discounted in
such a series as the coming fall
classic. Long train hops between
Philadelphia and St. Louis has nec-
essitated open dates during the se-
ries, so that if Connie Mack's plans
do not go awry, Grove or Earnshaw
can be started in every.game. Street
will undoubtedly counter this move
by starting only two, or at the most
three, of the Cardinal moundsmen,
probably Grimes, Derringer, and

Tommy Creavy and Denny Shute
Show Golfdom's Veterans
How It's Done.
Proof that golf is a game for
young men was really prbsented
when Denny Shute and Tommy.
Creavy pulled away from all the
veterans and old favorites of the
game last week to meet in the
P.G.A. finals. Gene Sarazen,
Tommy Armour, Billie Burke, and
Walter Hagen are a few of the fa-
mous golfing names that bowed be-
fore the attack of youth.
Shute is only 26 years old and
comes from Hudson, Ohio, but he
looked good in the national open,
was a candidate for the 1931 Rider
cup team, and has taken several
tourneys. He ~defeated two of the
best, Tommy Armour and Billie
Burke, and mainly with that putter
of his. The latter was hard to beat
and stuck until 1 up eliminated
Creavy, who finally won the
P.G.A. honors is younger yet, only
21, comes from Albany, N. Y., and
had shown little of the big time
performance that is expected of a
champion. He avenged a defeat by
Gene Sarazen three years ago when
he toppled the veteran 5 and 3 to
get into the finals. This unexpect-
ed rise to the top was partly the
result of Sarazen's unsteady game
but largely the result of Tommy's
par-hovering and air-tight game
The final result further bears out
the hypothethis of youth since 26
years went down before the play
of 21 years and the former 4 to 1
shot of the semi-finals crashed
through to capture the Profession-
al Golfers' Association title in great



To Assist in Football.
With the addition of Wally Weber
to the list of coaches, Michigan has
,added another former Wolverine
grid grad to its staff of football
tutors. Weber was appointed by the
Board in Control of Athletics to the
position of general coach, with his
main duties as an assistant in foot-
Weber held down the fullback
berth-on the 1925 and 26 elevens
which won the Big Ten champion-
ships for Michigan. He was de-
prived of three years of athletic
competition at Michigan by the fact
that he had played football for one
year at Detroit City college before
coming to Ann Arbor. After his
graduation from the University in
February 1927, Weber started work
on his Masters degree. In the fall
of that year he went to Benton Har-
bor High school where he turned
out some powerful grid teams and
was runner up the following year.
Charles Bernard, '34, a member of
this year's grid squad was an all-
state center for two years when he
played under Weber at Benton Har-
bor. Buss, Michigan State tackle,
was another of Weber's all-state
players. This former Wolverine
grid star is aiding in coaching the
'Michigan backfield this fall.
