Hudson, Renner, Eastman Prac-
tice Kicking as Regulars Are
Out With Inuries
Captain Sol Hudson ran into the
limelight again when he opened a
series of long runs against the
Freshmen yesterday afternoon in
the secret practice. From his new
halfback position Hudson pierced
the freshmen line, extending his
jaunts into the yearling secondary
defense, and rolling up a tremen-
dous total of yardage from the line
of scrimmage.
Coach Kipke shifted Hudson to
the halfback post Monday and was
entirely satisfied with the results
yesterday. Roy played his best foot-
ball from this position last year
and has not functioned in his old
style so far this season, mainly cri-
tics think, because he has had to
bear the additional burden of all
line plunging.
Hudson Leads Offense.
With CaptainHudson leading the
offense, the Varsity used their new
plays to good advantage against
the yearlings. Fay and Hewitt gave
the Wolverine Captain fair block-
ing but Coach Kipke was not satis-
fied with the general blocking and
sent the backs against a group of
freshmen for special practice in
this division of attack.
Later in the session, a selected
group of first-year men were sent
through the Princeton plays. Coach
Cappon has scouted the Tigers for
the last few games and has noted
improvement in the play of the
Princeton eleven each week al-
though they were defeated by Cor-
nell, Brown, and the Navy. Coach
Al Witmer is desperate and he will
be taking all kinds of chances Sat-
urday to put his team back on the
road to victory.
Kipke Works New Kickers.
With Tessmer, Heston, and Ever-
hardus all suffering from minor in-
juries, Coach Kipke put Renner,
Eastman, and Roy Hudson through
a special kicking workout. If Mich-
igan's three regular punters should
be out of the game, Kipke will
have to call on one of the latter
group to perform in this depart-
The linemen were used against
each other in an effort to improve
their line-play. Although they out-
played the Illinois' line, Coach
Kipke expects them to meet stif-
fer competition against the Tigers
and must improve their offensive

Coach Harry Kipke's worries over
a backfield seem to be about
through, but now the Michigan
mentor finds himself confronted
with another problem, that of using
all of the available men whose
namc3 can be found on the roster
of the Wolverine squad.
With Bill Hewitt firmly en-%
trenched in the fullback posi-
tion, Kipke has moved Captain
Roy Hudson to a halfback post,
giving the Varsity squad at
least four halves capable of fill-
ing regular positions. Fay, Hes-
ton, and Everhardus have al-
ready proved their right to
work in the Michigan back-
field, and now that Hudson has
also been shifted to half the
problem arises as to just which
two should play.

Michigan would have one of the
best blocking quartets behind the
line in the history of the Maize and
Blue. While the Wolverines captain
has starred as a ball carrier in his
two years on the team, it is as a
defensive back that he is at his
If Hudson plays when Tess-
mer is calling s nals, Heston
probably will get into the game
when Harry Newman assumes
the quarterback duties. This
shift will give Michigan not
such a strong defensive quar-
tet, but the potential scoring
will be heightened by the less
conservative signal calling of
Newman and the flashy run-
ning ability of Heston.

Independent Sports
Calendar Will Open
With Tag Grid Game
Intramural competition on the
Independent calendar of sports is
scheduled to start next week with
the opening event of touch foot-
ball. This sport is an innovation
of the season and is expected to be
of interest this and coming years.
A total of five teams have signed
for this tourney, including the
Buckeyes, all-around winners of
two years ago, and four teams un-
named to date. The Department
needs at least eight teams to con-
duct this meet satisfactorily and
hopes for three more entries be-
fore the close of the week.
No less than 20 individuals have
signed up on the bulletin board to
play in Independent competition
this year but are unorganized as
yet. This is a splendid opportunity
for some independent students to
step in as managers and organize
a couple teams to compete in the
calendar of ten sports that runs
throughout the year.
This first event will be conduct-
ed with every team playing every
other team entered to determine
the winner. Besides the individual
trophy offered, the points made in
this event will as usual count to-
ward the final all-year standingq
