Plane Tows Glider
Over Stadium Here
Circling the stadium in tow
of a plane, the glider owned by
University students attracted
the attention of the 80,000 per-
sons watching Michigan open its
football season.
Prof. Leo M. Franklin piloted
the motorless ship. He was set
free at a 2,000 foot altitude, and
after flying to the north of the
stadium for 15 minutes, landed
in a field to the west of the play-
ing field.
Howard Boys, president of the
University of Michigan Aeronau-
tical society, flew the two- cylin-
dereAeronca which towed the
glider. It was the first time one
of these 425-pound models had
ever been used for this purpose,
Newsboys Stage Fight;
Police Hold Detroiter'
Altercation arising from an at-
tempt to usurp a news stand at
Main and Huron streets led to the
arrest last night of Eddie Lutz, 22,
of Detroit, who is being held by
police on a charge of assult and
battery charge preferred by Don-
ald Johnson, who police say has
sold papers on the corner for the
past five years.
When questioned by police fol-
lowing his arrest last night, Lutz
admitted that he had struck John-
son, who was said to have forcibly
attempted to discourage the for-
mer's activities in his territory.
Justice Jay H. Payne stated last
night that he had sufficient evi-
dence for Lutz's conviction on the

Beat Mt. Pleasant in First Game, 27 to 0; Gai
Revenge on Hurons in Second, 34 to 0; New
Men Show Up Well in Double Header.
One of the largest crowds that ever jammed into Michigar
stadium for an opening game saw Coach Harry Kipke's Wolverin
ride rough shod over Central State Teachers and Michigan Sta
Normal colleges yesterday to take both ends of a double bill, 27 to
and 34 to 0. Over 80,000 people, many of them high school student
from all over the state, filled the mammoth stadium.
After the Michigan reserves had given George Van Bibber's MV
Pleasant team a severe beating in the opener, the eleven men that a
expected to comprise the Wolverine Varsity throughout the ye
were sent in to make up for their poor showing last year at the hanc
of the Hurons from Ypsilanti. Although the first quarter was marre
by sloppy ball handling, the Maize and Blue gridiron machine bega

These four sophomores coitributed materially to Michigan's victor-
tories yesterday. Jack Heston displayed some real open field running to'
gain considerable yardage and accounted for one of the touchdowns.
Ted Petoskey revealed gbod lability to kick during the afternoon and
added one of the points; after touchdown as his share.
Herman Everhardus and Stanley Fay were not spectacular, but by
their steady worlk through the line aided the Wolverines to collect many
of their first dowhs as they tipped their Way to triumph over Normal's

West Coast Physician Reports
Belief That Search Has
Ended In Success.
Dr. Frederick Emerson, director of
clinical laboratories and research
at Mt. Zion hospital, has isolatedt
a germ which he believes may be
one of the hitherto invisible army
of poliomyelitis, otherwise known
as infantile paralysis.
Dr. Emerson was not sure of his
discovery. He pointed out Friday,
however, that the proof will lie in
tests and said monkeys already
had been inoculated for observa-I
tion. The germ came from a mon-
key that died of infantile paraly-
"What can be seen can be com-
batted," the scientist stated. "If
we find this germ is the germ of
infantile paralysis, we can make
from it anti-toxins and serums
that may cure victims and prevent
others from having the disease."
A report on the experiments has
been sent to the Smithsonian in-


Four others were seriously hurt in
the accident.
Sheriff's deputies said last night
that the accident occurred when a
car driven by Orie Oberheim, in
which Leo Oberheim, Orie's broth-
er, and Wolff were riding, cut out
of line in traffic in an attempt to
pass another car, and ran head on
into a third vehicle driven by Nel-
son Hubbard, of Northfield town-
ship. Mrs. Hubbard was a passenger
in the car..
Both cars involved in the collision
were completely demolished, Ober-
I heim's auto being destroyed by fire
after the crash.
Both Oberheim brothers, Hub-
bard, and his wife were treated at
St. Joseph's hospital.

good steady ball that enabled them
to run up a large amount of yard-
age gained from scrimmage. Ever-
hardus, on the other hand, besides
doing a lot of the kicking and pass-
ing, also tore off some brilliant runs.
Petoskey in both games demon-
strated that he will be a big factor
in Michigan's football hopes for
this season. Although he played
well throughout the two games, it
was his brilliant catch of Renner's
long pass over the goal line in the
second contest that stood out as his
'best effort of the day.
Highlights of the first game in-
cluded Jack Heston's exhibitions of
open M1eld running and Estil Tess-
mer's perfect form in passing.
After a scoreless first quarter
against Michigan Normal, Everhar-
dus cut through tackle for a touch-
down shortly after the opening of
the second period, and Stan Hozer
booted the point that gave the
Maize and Blue a 7-0 lead.
Later in the same period Jack
Heston, going in for Everhardus at
half, took the ball
on his first play
and cut through
tackle for 16 yards
and a second
marker. Again
Hozer kicked the :.
extra point. Mich-
igan's next oppor-
tunity to s core
came when Ko-
walik recovereda
Huron fumble on
Normal's 16-yard
line to place the Cox
ball in position for Hozer to go over
a few plays later. Ted Petoskey, who
kicked well all day, sent the ball
spiraling over the crossbar for the
extra point.
Michigan's fourth score in the
first half was the result of the most
brilliant play of the day, a leaping
catch by Petoskey of Renner's long
pass, a play that brought back
memories of Bennie Oosterbaan to
all those who nued tn watch the


ty bombs were dropped.
