NEW COMBINA|TON
WILL FACE STATE
Williamson Is Latest Possibility
Put Hudson, Hewitt, and
Fay Are Favored.
Captain Hudson, Bill Hewitt, or
Stanley Fay are the leading con-
tenders for the quarterback posi-
tiori left vacant when Zit Tessmer
was injured in the Indiana game.
A new backfield has been experi-
mented with in the hopes of putting
Michigan's strongest offensive quar-
tet on the gridiron Saturday.
Williamson is another possibility
for the signal-calling job but the
threebacks are favored. The nom-
ination of Hewitt came as a sur-
prise last night as Fay seemed to
have the in'ner edge on the selec-
tion of plays. Last night Coach
Kipke used Captain Hudson and
Jack Heston as the halfbacks with
Bill backing up the line while a sev-
en man line was used and Fay al-
ternated with Newman at defensive
quarterback.
Williamson May Play Safety.
The star sophomore has develop-
ed into an excellent punt receive'r
and will undoubtedly be at the safe-
ty-man position on the defense
against Coach Crowley's Spartans.
I4e received a lengthy workout
catching the boots of Jack Heston
and Captain Hudson.
Heston is a certainty at half-
back as he is the best kicker left
on the team. If the new backfield
ncludes Fay and Hudson too, it
will be the best off-tackle and end-
running aggregation Kipke can
muster. Fay and Heston excell in
this department while Hudson
shows signs of returning to his old
time form of carrying the ball
through tackle and around end.
Fuilbacks Both Strong.
Hewitt oan plunge and probably
would take care of the passing un-
tUl N14erman would be sent in for
this purpose. The Bay City full-
back will meet another high school
mate when Jones, flashy halfback
on the Spartan team, comes here
Saturday. Auer, stellar guard, also
hails from'ay City.
La rOunesse wil le ready for the
Michigan State game but, it is
doubtful that he will start. Kowal-
ik is an able substitute while Can-
trill is available for the position.
Tessmer has not put in an appear-
ance on the practice field this week
and his imjury will not be mended
sufficiently for the Michigan State
game.
Coach James Crowley expects
that a strong passing offense will
give the Capital city team their
best chance of winning. He has
put his 'team through a long pass-
ing drill every day this week and
has even tossed some of the aerial
heaves himself.
Eliowitz to Pass.
The Spartarns have Abe Eliowitz
to do their passing but so far this
season he has not conncted with
regularity. A new man might pos-
sibly, see service against Michigan
in the role as a passer.
Coach Kipke is not taking any
chances, wit; the Michigan State
team running offense. Yesterday
lie sent the Varsity through a long
defensive drill in stopping the at-
tacks at the Wolverine forward
wall.

MICHIGAN HARRIERS
Wolverine Cross Country Team
to Seek Revenge for Defeat
Received Last Year.
Seven men are scheduled to
make up the Wolverine contingent
of cross country stars who will
leave tomorrow for Madison in an
endeavor to revenge a stinging 21-
37 defeat which the Wisconsin hill
and dale men administered at the
last meeting -of the two teams.
Coach Charlie Hoyt's harriers
will meet approximately the same'
team that defeated the Wolves in
1930. Kirk, the Badger ace, is
bound to be a tough man for the
Michigan distance men to run into
the ground. It will be Doc Howell's
task to take care of this man, while
Capt. Harmon Wolfe is leading theI
remainder of the Michigan squad
in an effort to prevent a repetitionI
of the last lop-sided meet.
In addition to Kirk, the Badgers
will be able to place on the track
Bertrand, Wright, and Courtright,
all veterans of the fast 1930 out-
fit. This quartet will be a difficult
combination to beat and the
Wolges will have to do better than
their best if they wish to carry off
the lion's share of the honors.
The remainder of the Varsity
squad will be made up of Hill, Fitz-
gibbons, Ostrander, McManus and
Braden. The squad will leave late
Friday for Madison on the same
special with the "Bi" eleven- which
is scheduled to also engage the
Badgers this week-end.

Armistice Day Race Run in Cold,

Rain and cold slowed up the run-

pack to the tape in the slow timeE
of 17:03. He was followed by Bots-

the winners of the first five places.
The first five winners are avard-

Conger receiving a gold meda'l and
the other four bronze.
Botsworth, who finished second,
tied with Rod. Howell in, the first
freshman cross country run two

twelfth place.
Thirty three men started the
long grind, but the extremely ad-

several to drop out before the fin-

BADGERS TO END
'B' GRID SEASON
Courtright ' Stresses Overhead
Attack for Final Game.
Apparently undaunted by. the
Wisconsin B football team's record,
of twelve straight victories, Michi-
gan's Jayvees went through yes-
terday afternoon's practice session
with plenty of drive. The gridders
are scheduled to meet the. Badgers
at Wisconsin to close their seasonI
next Saturday.
Drill yesterday consisted largely
of a prolonged pass rehearsal for
the backs and ends. Meldman,
line-bucking fullback, is apparent-
ly being coached to take part in the
aerial offense, his heaves being
mostly bullet-like short ones, and
they are fairly accuate.
% An extensive practice for the
place-kickers was also\ on yester-
day's bill; Coach Courtright evi-
dently does not intend to see any
more prospective wins fade into
ties as the result of a wide try for
the extra point. Punters, also,
were put through their paces.
That the Wisconsin aggregation
is formidable this season is attested
not only by the fact that they will
be trying for their thirteenth win,
but also by their defeats of the
Northwestern and Illinois Junior
Varsities. The Badgers are coached
by Irwin Uteritz, former Michigan
.star.
