y Sheldon C. Fullerton
Towards the end of the gridiron
season the attention of football
lovers, critics and rooters alike,
turns to the probable make-up of
the so-called All-American team.
In Ann Arbor attention is centered,
of course, on the possibilities of any
man on the Michigan eleven win-
ning a place on that mythical ag-
gregation.

A slow moving Wolverine grid
squad woke up to the fact yester-
day that it has no pushover on its
hands this week-end when the
Hoosiers invade the Michigan stad-
ium. Far from the snappy aggre-
gation of pigskin totters that they
were when they bowled over the
Tigers and Illini, the Wolves seem-
ed to be in a reverie as Coach Kip-
a ke attempted to round them up to
top form.
Opening the drill with an offen-
sive against the yearlings, Kipke
sent in two sets of backs, but neith-
er appeared to make much head-
way. Pass after pass was attempt-
ed, but out of a dozen or more, but
two were completed. Hewitt and
Newman alternated on the throw-
ing end, but neither was able to
find a receiver. The passes were
far from accurate, and when they
did find thhir mark the receivers
had difficulty in handling them.
Fay Add Spark.
Fay, Hudson, Hewitt, and Tess-1
mer made up one of the backfields,
with Eastman, DeBaker, Cox and
Newman making up another quar-
tet. Fay and Hewitt added the
spark to the drive of the Varsity,
the former looking especially well
down under the long tosses. In
general, the possibility o f t h e
Wolves being able to present any-
thing but a mediocre aerial game
Saturday appears to be slight. New-
man's arm is far from the form of
last year.
LaJeunesse appeared on the field
for the first time
this week in uni-
form, but chances
of his being able
to play before the
Minnesota game
depend upon how
well h is ankle
m. mends. He is
limping consid-
erably and will
not be of any
service in t h e
Hoosier melee..
LaJeunesse Ray- F i s h e r's
proteges were brought around to
demonstrate some of Coach Hayes'
Indiana tricks. The line facing the
freshmen included Williamson and
Petoskey on the flanks, Auer and
Samuels at tackle, Kowalik and Ho-
zer, guards and Morrison at center.
Newman was in the backfield.
Hoosiers On Upgrade.
Indiana seems to be on the up-
grade as far as offensive power is
concerned a n d have scored 45
points which is more than double
that of all last season. As far as
the dope sheet is concerned, the
Hoosiers would appear to have the
best of the bargain for they took
over the Maroons 32-6 compared
to the Wolves' one touchdown mar-
gin.

EDUCATION GROUP
TO ENGAGE FROSH
Ford, Center, Shows Capability
Against Varsity Reserves.
The yearling squad began inten-
sive practice this week in prepara-
tion for the big freshman game of
the year against the Physical Edu-
cation team the last of the month.
One freshman who has shown
himself to advantage in all the
practices to date, handling himself
more like a football player should,
is Gerald Ford a center from Grand
Rapids South High. This eighteen
year old youngster, weighing only
175, has proved himself an excel-
lent center by his speed and fight.
He won a All-State berth at center
last year.
In addition to his football ability,
Ford is also a basketball player and
a track man. In high school, he
,played guard, winning his letter
one year, being kept out of the
game in his Junior year due to a
bad' leg. As a shot putter and dis-
cus thrower, he won his letter in
track for all three years that he
was eligible for varsity competi-
tion.

Coach Dissatisfied
With B' Team Play;
Passing Drill Held
Thoroughly dissatisfied with the
showing of his Jayvee gridders in
their scrimmage with the freshmen
on Tuesday, Coach Ray Courtight
yesterday put his charges through
a long offensive drill, in prepara-
tion for their game with Indiana.
Off-tackle slants and cut backs
received the greatest attention in
the dummy drill. The -B team backs
have been woefully weak 'in the
blockingdepartment of the game
so the practice yesterday was
mainly aimed at remedying this
defect.
A long passing drill was also on
the bill for the afternoon with both
offense and defense coming in for
their share of attention.

PRE'PARE FOR MEE[T

Harper Trophy Is Special Award
for Triangular Meet With
Illini, Ohio State.
Fighting for the Harper Trophy
and a victory over Illinois and Ohio
State, Michigan cross country run-
ners will put forth their best bid
of the season in Saturday's triang-
ular meet.
Smarting. under the defeats of
Michigan Normal and Michigan
State, Coach Hoyt has pushed his
harriers to the limit during this
week's drill. If the Wolverines can
cop the meet, the first five Maize
and Blue runners to cross the tape
will be automatically awarded the
varsity 'M's.
The first three individual run-
ners to cross the tape will be pre-
sented with cups for the Harper
trophy, .,it was announced last
night. If Michigan can win the
triangular meet, it will place them
in a leading position for Confer-
ence honors but outside of Howell,
present holder of the three-mile
course record, the Wolverine team
will have to improve considerably
to make this bid.
The team strength was weak
against Normal and again last Sat-
urday, Howell was the only Michi-
gan man to place in the first four.
Captain Wolfe finished fifth and
surprised Coach Hoyt with his
splendid showing and if he im-
proves as much this week as he did
in the practices for the Spartan
contest, he might have a chance
to be among the first five finishers.
h The distance has been set atfour
miles which is longer than the
Wolverines have been. accustomed
to in the past meets. The Michi-
gan State race was 'over a three
and one-half course and the meet
before was over a three-mile course.

Since 1928, when Otto Pom-
merening won, a berth on the
All-American eleven at tackle,
the Wolverine teams have not
been represented on the mythi-
cal choices of critics at the end
of the season. But this year
hopes of Maize and Blue back-
ers are again running high, as
the continued brilliant play of
Maynard "Doe" Morrison at
center seems to be bringing him
nearer and nearer to recogni-
tion on the greatest group of
college players that this coun-
try can muster.
Morrison is one of the' few cen-
ters in the land who has a chance
to win honors at that position.
With the graduation of such stars
as Ben Ticknor and Tony Siano,
the number of capable pivot men in
college football has materially de-
creased, and comparatively few
newcomers have come up to chal-
lenge those veterans of last year
who just missed the honor selec-
tions by a slight margin.
Morrison would be an ideal
man for the position. His great
size .and weight alone would
enable him to prove a worthy
bulwark in any line, but in ad-
dition to those physical attrib-
utes Morrison also is the pos-
sessor of a keen football rind
that enables him to diagnose
the plays of-"his opponents. His
position on defense, that of a
roving center, is id al for a
player of his type.
By playing behind the actual line
of scrimmage, Morrison can see
where the play is coming before it
actually hits the Michigan linemen.
This enables him to back up the
man in the line at whom the play
is directed, and the total net yard-
age gained through his position
this year bears mute evidence to

Doc Morrison
the fact that he really can
7 rival line plunger.

1 dib

Morrison, in his two years at
the pivot position, has shown
great ability to break through
opposing lines upon certain oc-
casions to nail runners before
they get started, while his rov-
ing position allows him to go
after, and usually down men
that get around the tackles or
ends. Morrison's work on in-
tercepting short passes just
over the line of scrimmage has
also elicited praise from critics
the country over during the
last two gridiron campaigns.
