News Rel Cameras Invafr Ferry
Field to Make Movies of
: Michigan G-idders.
With the opening date of the
1931 grid card just three days away
Coach, Harry G. Kipke is drilling
his Wolverine team for Saturday's
double header in sccret sessions.
With an additional weck of practice
'before the inaugural this year the
team will be in better condition on
the opening day than was possible
in past seasons.
At yesterday's practice Ferry field
took on the appearance of a motion
picture lot with news reel cameras
and a sound equipment truck on
hand to make a record of- the Mich-
igan, eleven at work. Between,
pauses for photography work the
coaches pushed their charges hard,
in an endeavor to put more _spirit
into the squad before theystack upt
againstMich~igan ral and Cen-
tral State Te Achers.
Practice Punting.
Tessmer and Jack Heston were
put to work to improve their punt-
ing under fire. Both men got sev-
eral long punts and with the inter-
ferencehch~should be forthcom-
ing from the rest of the team will
be able to show to great advantage
this fall.
Aftertheir ratherwstrenu o u s
work-out the squad was divided in-
to four teams for signal drill with
veterans from last season making
up most of the first eleven.
Hewitt, Williamson and Petoskey
look like the players who will be at
the flank for the greater part of
the Ypsi game. Auer, Samuels, Ber-
nard, or Cantrill will get the call
for the tackle berths, with Hozer
and LaJuenesse at the guards, and
Morrison at the pivot post.
Backfield Uncertain.
Captain Hudson is about the only
sure bet for a back field berth, with
the other three positions to be filled
from the ranks of such players as
Tessmer, Newman, Jack Heston,
Fay, DeBaker, Westover, and Ren-
ner. The majority of the players
on the injured list are expected to
be back in regular condition by the
start of Saturday's encounters, al-
though no chances will be taken
by rushing these men into the
Detroit Tigers landed in seventh
place for the 1931 American League
baseball pennant.

With the opn am of the
1931 World Series schedule for St.
Louis tomorrow afternoon, the
Philadelphia A t h l e t i c s, World's,
Champions for the past two years,
are accorded by leading baseball
authorities at least an even chance
to repeat, and incidentally gain
. the honor of being the first tean
in the history of organized baseball
to win the series for three conxmc-
utive seasons.
The seriees. however. will not be
a setup for the A's this year, op-
osed as the arc by a spirited St.
Louis club, theIselves the victors
in a fairly stiff battle for National
League supremacy this year.
A's Given Edge

Al Simmons
'Mural Department to Sponsor
Two Separate Tourneys.
Intramural All-Campus g o 1f
competition will be run off this fall
in conjunction with the Varsity
All-Campus tournament. The ar-
rangement is to be such that all
players who turn out will.get into
a tourney despite failure to quali-
fy for either the first flight or the
Varsity A-C championship fliit,
and lie above the best 32 scores.
Qualification scores will be used
however in placing the entrants in
the Intramural flights and the play
will be carried through to the fi-
nal winner. The awards to be gain-
ed are not only worth while but
numerous for besides the cup that
goes to the winner, there will be
medals for all other flight win-
ners, including consolation.
With the intention to run off a
tournament for graduate students,
the Intramural Department feels
that this fall's golf program will
be the best that it has ever spon-
sored, and will be well received.
Any sophomores interested in
trying out for football manager-
ships report to Ferry Field any
afternoon this week.
John Sauchuck, Manager.

A slight edge is given the Phil-
adelphia club, on several counts.
First and foremost, the Cards may
have their sluggers-Hafey and the
rest, but they do not possess a hit-
ter in the lot with a record for
timely, hard and consistent hitting
to compare with that hung up in
the American League this year by
Al Simmons, star left fielder of the
Al's hitting, mainly because of
its dependability in the pinches,
should prove to be quite a factor
in the series. Simmons' batting
average iii this season's American
league scrap was .389; he drove in
125 runs. Twenty-two of his clouts
were homers, and no less than 72
went for extra bases. In the field-
ing line, his average of .986 com-
pares favorably with the .982 rec-
ord hung up this season by Hafey
of th e Cards. Unquestionably,
Simmons is the most valuable out-
fielder in either club, if not either
Hurlers May Decide
Another determining factor in
this season's championship series
will undoubtedly be the pitching.
With three such hurlers as Grove,
Earnshaw, and Walberg, the Amer-
ican League club should have a de-
cided edge in the event of a short
series. However, the g r e a t e r
strength of the Cards' staff should
give them a better chance in this
department should the series prove
a long one.
As to the advantage in the psy-
chological factor of the series,
there is only this. to be said: The
Athletics will be scrapping hard to
continue their two years of world
supremacy. They are the seasoned
veterans of two consecutive years
of successful World Series competi-
tion. The Cards, on the other hand,
