Offensive Drill
For Game With
Ohio State Held
Wistert And Austin Work
Out At Tackle; Ward Is
Used. At Wing Position
Defense Only Fair
Buckeye Plays, As Used
By Yearlings, Fail To
Gain Against Varsity
Despite the fact that a yearling
eleven using Ohio State plays and
formations made an occasional good
gain through the Wolverine line and
secondary d e f e n s e, optimism pre-
vailed in the Michigan ranks yester-
dayafternoon. With a chill wind
blowing across the South Ferry grid-
iron, the practice, as is characteristic
of many Tuesday workouts, might
have been slow and sluggish.
The Wolves h o w e v e r displayed
plenty of pep as, heavily muffled, they
went through a rigorous offensive
routine followed by defense against
the freshmen.
Several new plays were given the
varsity by Coach Harry Kipke, most
of which were of a decidedly strate-
gic rather than a powerful nature.
The Maize-and-Blue outfit appeared
to take to the formations rapidly.
No injuries were reported today,
and the injured are in an advanced
stage of convales-
c e n c e. Saturday,
A, barring i s haps,
w Wolves at full
strength. Yester-
day a f t e rnoon's
routine found the
line with Petoskey,
Wistert, A u s t i n,
Bernard, Markov-
sky, Kowalik, and
Ward as its per-
sonnel. R e g e z c i,
Newman, Heston, and Fay composed
the backfield. Captain Williamson
was excused because of classwork.
Defense Weak
On the defense, Michigan's varsity
did not particularly shine against the
Buckeye formations illustrated by the
yearlings, b u t yesterday afternoon
was their first opportunity to look
them over. Coach Jack Blott in-
'structed the freshmen in the Ohio
plays. Indications are that Kipke ir-
tends the entire remodeling of his c e-
fense this Saturday not only for the
line but for the backfield. This has
been found necessary by Ohio's suc-
cess last year with the cut-back play.
TEhe Buckeyes will present a close
line formation with Cramer, about
five yards behind the line, as the
man farthest back in the layout. Flat
passes apparently have been used
with great effect by the Columbus
outfit, as the mentors drilled Mich-
igan against such an attack.
Freshman Scrimmage Subs
Ferry Field was the scene of an
uninteresting battle between the sub-
stitutes and the first yearling eleven.
The varsity replacements managed
to score, but looked unimpressive in
doing so.
DeBaker, Meldman, a n d Renner
bore the burden of the offense for
the upperclassmen, and several gains
of over twenty yards were registered.
The jayvee outfit also took the field
against the freshmen.

Willaman PutsI
Buckeyes' Into
Hard Training
Hinchman And Ferrall On
Sidelines Nursing Hurts;
May PlaySaturday
COLUMBUS, O., Oct. l1.-(/P)-
Abandoning the customary vacation
day after a Big Ten game, Coach
Sam Willaman drove his Ohio State
football squad relentlessly through
one of the most strenuous practice
sessions of the season today in prep-
aration for the contest with Michigan
The entire squad was sent through
a long series of tackling and block-
ing drills. This was topped off with
a vicious scrimmage between two se-
lected teams. Capt. Hinchman and
Ferrall were on the sidelines nursing
bruises. They will be back in shape,
however, by tomorrow.
Willaman said he was greatly dis-
appointed over the showing of the
squad Saturday in its 7-to-7 tie with
Indiana and that this week practice
tactics would be changed. The men-
tor did not elaborate on his state-
ment, but it is believed that the Ohio
players are in for a touch week of
drill on fundamentals.
He said that later this week most
of the time would be spent in per-
fecting a pass defense to stop the
heaves of Harry Newman, about
whom Buckeye scouts brought home
glowing reports. New plays and new
formations will also be handed out
in an attempt to strengthen the Ohio
Frosh Demonstrate
Buckeye Plays In
Varsity Scrimmage
Coach Jack Blott, who has beenj
teaching Ohio plays to a group ofI
freshman grid men since Saturday,
yesterday had his squad demon-
strate the formations for the Varsity.:
- The frosh lined up with Slinger
and Merril at the ends, Semeyn and
Renaud at the tackles, Hildner and
Nizzardi, guards, and ,Schultz, cen-
ter. The backfield was composed of
Bolas and Triplehorn at the halves,t
Wallbridge at full, and Hunn callingt
signals. f
The Ohio plays, as interpreted by1
the freshmen, were much like thosee
Northwestern used here Saturday.r
The wing-back formation is used,.
with one of the wing-backs in mo-
tion on several plays. The forma-
tions for end runs are almost exactly
like the Wildcats', with the back in
motion and the guards coming out
of the line for interference.
The Ohio aerial attack seemed to
favor a fiat pass that is thrown
across instead of down the field. It
is a hard pass to defend against,
but, on the other hand, it is danger-l
ous since interception would meane
an almost sure touchdown.
All gymnastic candidates for the
Varsity team are expected to report
to Coach West in the auxiliary gym-
nasium of the Intramural building at
8 p. m. Wednesday.

CHAMPAICN, Ill., Oct. 11.-The
battle-cry "Beat Northwestern" re-
sounds on the Illinois campus, for
Homecoming week is nere and the
Illini are mustering all their strength,
courage, and spirit to fight off the
Wildcat pack when it comes pound-
ing down from Evanston Saturday.
Led by the Tribe of Illini, organi-
zation of varsity lettermen, the stu-
dent body is rallying to the support
of the Illini. A "snake" dance Thurs-
day night and outdoor "pep" meet-
ing Friday night at which Bob
Zuppke and old-time stars will speak
will be the climax of a spirited week.
Cheered by the support of their
fellow students, the varsity squad
is keyed up for therencounter with
the Purple, and there is a general
conviction that Illinois, conceded to
be a far better team than last year,
has a good chance to take this game.
For the first time in years the
student body will attend football
practice, for Coach Zuppke has an-
nounced the gates will be open Fri-
day afternoon when the Illini ad-
herents will cheer thh players in
their last workout.
Campus and cities are preparing to
bedeck themselves in the Orange and
Blue of Illinois and the Purple of
Northwestern. A number of class re-
unions will beheld and there will
be a general reunion for the old-
timers following the game.
Illinois' famous band, presenting
new formations, as it plays the tradi-
tional battle songs of the Illini, will
probably have a worthy rival in the
Northwestern band, directed by
Glenn Bainum, once an assistant to
Director Harding of Illinois.

Iowans To Be
Indiana's Guest
At Homecon ing
IOWA CITY, Oct. 11.-(Special-
The dubious privilege of being a
guest at a rival's homecoming has
been conferred upon the University*
of Iowa football team, opponent of
Indiana at Bloomington next Satur-
These homecoming games always
are difficult for the visitor, since the
presence of alumni hordes stirs the
home team to inspired feats. So the
Hawkeyes will move to Hoosier do-
main with some misgivings. Each
team had- a road, game Saturday,
Iowa at Wisconsin and Indiana at
Ohio State.
Indiana' has returned the com-
pliment, for last fall the Hoosiers
we'e the attraction at Hawkeye
homecoming and with supposedly a
superior team were outplayed most
of the time, being lucky to escape
with a scoreless tie.
Before travelling east, Coach Os-
sie Solem will give his Iowans thor-
ough lessons in offense, seeking to
develop even more speed and drive.
He will do this in the belief that In-
diana, with numerous line veterans,
will have a stout defense. Key men
are Lyons, giant Negro end; Angle-
myer and Rehm, tackles; and Nylec,
A .corps of fast veteran backs may
give the Iowa defense some worries,
and Solem will fashion a defense for
passes. Especially do the Iowans re-
spect the long-armed Lyons whose
snatching of forward passes is a con-
stant threat.
If injuries do not upset his plans,
Coach Solem is likely to pick prac-
tically the same lineup which start-
ed the Wisconsin game. The tackles,
Moore and Schammel, will be school-
ed at breaking up the Hoosier run-
ning attack, and the backfield of
Moffitt. Schneidman, Schmidt, and
Kuhn will duplicate tactics used
against Wisconsin.

NEW YORK, Oct. 11.--(P)'-As the
fore-runner of a wholesale shake-up
in the playing personnel of the New
York Giants, two south-paw pitchers,
an ancient backstop and a substitute
outfielder, were traded today to the
St. Louis Cardinals for a recruit
'ight-handed pitcher, Ray Starr, and
a catcher, Gus Mancuso.
In a straight trade for these two
players, the Giants parted with Bill
Walker, the National League's most
effective pitcher two seasons ago;
Jimmy Mooney, 25-year-old south-
paw who failed this year to dupli-
cate the sensational form he dis-
played in 1931; Bob O'Farrell, vet-
eran of 18 major league catching
campaigns, one-time manager of the
Cardinals; and Ethan Allen, fast but
light-hitting outfielder.
Denying any cash was involved,
even though the Giants gave "four
for two," Secretary Jim Tierney made
a statement on the club's behalf.
Yankees Re-Name
McCarthy As Pilot
For Three Years
NEW YORK, Oct. 11.-(P)-Joseph
Vincent McCarthy, the square-jawed
Irishman who piloted the New York
Yankees back to world championship
baseball heights in a two-year team
as manager, today received his re-
ward in the form of a new three-year
contract at a substantial increase in
No other details were divulged af-
ter a short and highly agreeable con-
ference between McCarthy and the
Yankeet owner, Col. Jacob Ruppert.
EVANSTON, Ill., Oct. 11.- (P) -
Coach Dick Hanley told his North-
western squad to forget the Michigan
game as far as the result was con-
cerned, but not to forget what hap-
pens when fumbles occur. He sent
most of the regulars through a long
dummy scrimmage against the fresh-
men, who used Illinois formations.
Rain and cold drove the Wildcats
under the stadium.
