If Coach Harry Kipke was ex-
pecting to uncover anything of a
sensational nature in yesterday's
gruelling scrimmage in the new sta-
dium, he must ,have been disap-
pointed, but at least he had the sat-
isfaction of knowing that the Wol-
verine squad is rapidly rounding in
to shape for its opening games of
the season on October 3.
After sending the entire squad
through a two hour drill under a
broiling sun that sent the therm-
ometers soaring up around 85 de-
grees, the Michigan mentor put a'
halt to the practice, with each of
two teams victorious in one game.
Numerous substitutions were made,
however, and at one time or anoth-
er practically every man had seen
service on each of the two elevens.
Many of the veterans that re-
main with the squad from last sea-
son demonstrated the fact that they
will again be the favorites for the
same positions this year, but several
new men showed enough ability in
their brief appearances in the
csrimmage to warrant closer inspec-
Schmidt, Westover, and Stine-
spring, all of them substitute backs,
showed flashes of form throughout
the afternoon. All of them saw
service with the second stringers,
but after playing for a few minutes
with this group Stinespring, the
smallest member of the squad, was
sent in to run the Varsity; Each
of these three men were good in
open field running, while Schmidt
also showed well in punting.
The so-called regular eleven
started out with a lineup composed
largely of substitute material. Pe-
toskey and Williamson were at the
ends, Chapman and Bernard at the
tackles, Douglas and Kowalik at
guards, and Auer at center in the
line. Westover, Fay, Everhardus,
and Hudson made up the backfield.
Later in the game, however, the
rest of the regulars were sent in
with Hewitt, Hozer, Morrison, La-
jeunesse, Samuels, Debaker, Cox
and Jack Heston playing with that

freshmen were already swarming
over the campus early yesterday
in an effort to become acquainted
with the University before the
beginning of the strenuous week o
orientation, registration and enroll-
ment before them.
Work Begins.
Directed by a force of 93 faculty
advisors and an even larger number
of student assistants, the freshmen
will begin a period of examinations
President's Message
To the Class of 1935:
I am welcoming you to our
campus. You will find here op-
portunities for ypur physical and
intellectual development such as
your fathers and grandfathers,
and in fact any who have gone
before you, never enjoyed, how-
ever favored by fortune. The
University of Michigan in 1931--
1932 is a greater institution, with
better facilities, than it ever has
been. Do not forget, on the other
hand, that the world today ex-
pects correspondingly greater re-
sults from you. Your parents,
your State, and your country
have built for you and sacrifced
for you, and it is your duty to
justify the faith that has sent
you here.
Alexander G. Ruthven,
conferences, lectures, concerts, in-
spection trips, and competitive ath-
letics that will continue until Sun-
day afternoon, when the entire
group will meet at a concert in Hill
Messages Issued.
University administrative officers:
issued messages of welcome to the
class of 1935 last night, among
them statements from President
Alexander G. Ruthven and Ira M.
Smith, Registrar.
"The American public has faith
in a college education for both men
and women." This is fully confirmed
by the increase in enrollment for
1930-1931, as compared with 1929-
1930. The increase represents ap-
proximately three and one-half per
cent over the total of 1929. This in-
crease is somewhat larger for men
than for women."
Mr. Smith indicated that the pe-
