Purdue Plans
For Team of

Fifteen Veterans Are L(os t
Through Gradualion;
Kizer Not Hopeful
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Sept. 19. -
When Purdue's gridiron squad took
the field last Thursday, Coach
Noble Kizer found that the Boiler-
makers will have an unusually young
team to bid for the Big Ten title.
Last year's great eleven that tied
with Michigan and Northwestern for
the championship was, wrecked by
graduation. A glance at the roster
shbws that of the 90 men who re-
ported for the initial drills, 15 are
seniors, 18 are juniors, with the rest1
Graduation removed at one swoop
13 major lettermen from the cham-
pionship club, most of whom had
been factors in the drive of the past
three years that netted Purdue one
undisputed Big Ten championship,
one co-ohampionship, and one run-
ner-up position.
Purdue's coaches have started
their reconstruction task without a
great deal of optimism. However,
with the host of new faces, I(izer and
his crew of coaches may spring an
other Conference surprise.
When Ed Lejeck won the Big Ten
tennis singles championship for Illi-
nois last spring, he took 11 straight
games from his opponent, Carl Den-
nison, of Ohio State.

Chicago without realizing his 290

Gembis Accepts
Post as Football
Coach in Detroit
Joe Gembis, star fullback for the
Michigan football team four years
ago, has accepted the position of
head football coach at the College
of the City of Detroit. The task
promises to be a difficult one for
Gembis as he must produce a win-
ning combination out of a squad of
thirty-odd prospects. City College
hasn't had a winning eleven in many
seasons and hopes that the skill
Gembis picked up as a member of
the Michigan team will serve him in
good stead. Since his graduation he
has been playing professional foot-
ball and coaching a high school
team in Ohio.
e will be assisted in his work by
Tom Edwards, who starred at tackle
on the Maize-and-Blue squad some
seasons ago. Edwards has also
played professionally since leaving
Ann Arbor. He will act as line coach,
and although the team lacks expe-
rienced men both Gembis and Ed-
wards have high hopes for the com-
ing campaign.
Eleven carloads of clay targets are
used each year at the National Ama-
teur Trapshooting championship.

Pommerening and

The Democratic nomination for
Congress was the unsuccessful goal
of Edwards. He is now in the insur-
ance business in Dearborn. A few
years ago he was engaged by the De-
troit police department as athletic
director, where he compiled a very
favorable record. He developed stel-
lar teams in baseball, football,
weight-lifting, and track. In the
latter sport he was aided by Victor

America VII went to the bottom of
the bay at the Lido in the next year,I
when the boat struck a floating ob-
ject and went to pieces. After several
days' submersion it was again rescued
and was found unharmed from the
salt water.;
In 1929 Miss America VIII won the
Harmsworth with the two motors
now forward in Miss America X. In
this race, Miss America VII was sec-
ond. The engines of Miss America
VI and later in VII went into IX last
year and were the first to carry a
man over 100 miles an hour in a
boat. This boat set another record
of 111.712 miles per hour in Florida.

When Lindbergh made his famous
flight he turned the attention of
American motor builders to air-
cooled motors. But the English Air

power motors that is built by Rolls
Royce, and which were used by Kaye

proving this motor, Gar Wood has
increased the horsepower of each of
his four Packard engines from 750
each to 1,600.
