Morrison, Williamson Selected
on First Squad; Hewitt
Placed on Second.
Michigan\ placed two players on
the 1931 All-Western Conference
football team named by the Asso-
ciated Press from a concensus opin-
ion of sports writers, coaches and
Six schools are represented on
the mythical eleven with North-
western leading the way with three
selections. In addition to Michi-
gan, Ohio State and Minnesota
placed two men each on the team,
while Purdue and Wisconsin have
one representative apiece.
Maynard Morrison and Ivan Wil-
liamson are the Wolverines picked
for the Big Ten honors. Michigan's
candidate for All-American honors,
Morrison, was placed at center;
while' the steady Maize and Blue
wingman, Ivan Williamson was
chosen for one of the end berths.
Besides these two men on the
first All-Conference team, Michi-
gan also placed three players on
the second Big Ten selection. Bill
Hewitt was named for one of the
flank positions, Harry Newman was
given the signal calling job, and
Stan Fay was picked for , a half-
back post.
Morrison Logical Man.
Doe Morrison by his brilliant per-
formances on both offense and de-
fense was named All-Conference*
center for the second year in a row.
The big center has been one of the
most outstanding players in the
aBig Ten this season. His ability to
diagnose opponents' plays h a s
proven'disastrous for the enemis
of the Wolvel'ne on mny occa-
sions. On attack he can be called
on at any time to open up a hole
for a team mate to take the ball
througl ,. le has broken up manya
enemy passes whichkseemed des-
tined for long gains.
The guard positions are com-
manded by two more giants, Clar-
ence Munn of Minnesota, and Gre-
gory Kabat of Wisconsin. Munn,
the big Gopher captain, and All-1
American choice of 1930, besides
playing in the line doubles at punt-
ing and running the ball. On the I
other side of the line is Kabat, who
has been the bulwark of Wiscon-
sin's foward wall this season. 1
Dal'Marvil and Jack Riley, the
Wildcats, powerful tackles, were
placed on the team as a unit. These
Northwestern players are two of ]
the most outstanding tackles in thei
West. .
Moss at End.
Playing at the opposite end of
the line from Williamson is Paul{
Moss of Purdue. The 'Boilermaker;
4ar is strong in all departments
of the game in which a good end
is versed. Michi'gan's' flank selec-
tion is one of the most consistent
players in the Conference and has
been the star of the game on both
defense and offense on several bc-
casions this fall. In a number of
instances he has blocked punts
-which led either directly or indi-
rectly to Wolverine scores.
Carl Cramer, sophomore, who has
been the sparkplug of the Ohio
State machine season, was placed
at quarterback, while his running
mate, Lewis Hihchman, was given
one of the halfback positions.
Northwestern's sensational Er-
nest "Pug" Rentner, one of the sea-
son's outstanding ball carriers, was
named for the other halfback post.
Jack Manders, powerful plunger of
the Minnesota Gophers, at full-
back rounds out the backfield.

Yearlings Lack Experience, Take
25-12 Beating from Keen's
i Wrestlers.
Entering their second week"'of
practice, C o a c h Keen's varsity'
wrestling squad gave the freshmanj
team of Coach Kelly a 25-12 defeat1
in a practice meet held yesterday
afternoon in the wrestling room of
the Intramural building.
The od6-sided score resulting
from the matches was only to be
expected, since many of the year-
lings had received little or no train-
ing in the sport until their en-
trance into the university a few
months ago. Most of the plebes
gave their experienced opponents
quite a bit of trouble, despite their
ignorance of many of the compli-
cated holds largely substituted for
main strength in the college com-
petition of today.
The hook-scissors and the stret-
cher gave the freshmen most of
their grief in yesterday's contests,
and the remainder of the workout
consisted of e'scapes from these
h h'ylds taught by Coach Keen. Des-
pite their lack of holds to work
\rith, however, the yearlings turn-
ed in a creditable performance, and
many who did not actually defeat
their varsity opponents surprised
the older grapplers by their stub-
born defense.
Three matches were taken by the
freshmen, and all were won on
time decisions. Koplan, Duxbury,
and Walder were the trio of year-
ling winners. Walder scored his
victory over Ponto, a promising
varsity candidate, only after a
tough struggle. Two draws gave
the freshmen the remainder of
their points. Smith of the yearling
aggregation drew a hard-fought
contest with Fiero, and Oakley
fought Woodard to a draw.
Perhaps the two hardest-fought
battles of the afternoon were those
fought by Thomas and Stowe, and
Otto and Silver.

Chicago Black Hawks Alter System Used
Last Season; Now Carry Reduced Roster
By Fred A. 'Huber made to this year's team, although
Dick Irvin's noble experiment there have been a number of re-
will not die repeated. Irvin, man- leases. The defense wall remains

ager of the Chicago Black Hawks,r
struck a new note in hockey last;
season when he employed four reg-
ular forward walls in each game,
in an effort to get the best out of
his men. The system has been
abandoned as,far as the 1931 squad
goes, however.
The Chicago sextet began the
race a year ago with this new idea
and for the first half of the pen-
nant chase where invincible. The
last half season the system failed
to click and the Black Hawks were
forced to scramble for their place
in the playoffs.
Very few additions have been

the same. The redoutable Chuck
Gardiner is in goal, with Cyclone
Wentworth, of the old OHA, and
heavy Taffy Abel in front of him.
Teddy Graham and the sturdy
Norseman, Helge Bostrum, form
the reserves. Dan Shay, a promis-
ing youngster has been optioned
out to Pittsburgh.
Two new forwards are with the
club this season. They are Jerry
Lowery, secured from Philadelphia
when the Quakers disbanded, and
Paul Thompson, who came from
the New York Rangers in trade,
Art Somers and Vic DesJardines
being sent east in the deal.
