Hurt; May Get In
Yesterday was far from the usual
light Monday romp for the Wolve-
rines, as Coach Harry Kipke sent the
regulars who were present through
an extensive drill over a long period.
Coach Courtright, who scouted the
Hoosiers in their game with the Mis-
sissippi Aggies Saturday, reported
that the Indiana eleven was heavy
and fast, with a line averaging 195
pounds and a backfield at about 175.
The two ends weigh 200 pounds
apiece, and they should be difficult
obstacles for any blocking phalanx.
. Two Hurt Saturday
Saturday's game was not without
its injuries as a penalty for the vic-
tors; Ted Petoskey sustained a shoul-
der injury which placed him in the
infirmary for the week-end, and
scheduled light workouts for him all
week, but it seems probable that he
will be capable of starting the game
against Indiana.
John Regeezi was also injured, but
not so severely as Petoskey. He was
not in evidence at
yesterday's session,
however, and light
practice will also
be his lot for the
. rest of the week.

on the tosses uncovered in Saturday's

displayed were run through by the
Wolverines, with a snappy defensive
backfield of coaches Oosterbaan,
Cappon, Webber, and Blott furnish-
ing plenty of opposition.
Meanwhile, Coach Courtright sent
a freshman eleven through a medley
of Indiana plays in preparation for
demonstration of the formations to
the varsity.
Stan Fay ran through the offense
with the varsity, although his injured
side does not yet permit strenuous
work. Russ Oliver appeared in uni-
form, but he was kept an the side-
lines throughout practice.

Mat Squad Drills
Under Thomas In
Nightly Practices
Under the tutelage of Capt. Blair
Thomas the men who will uphold
Michigan's wrestling honors in the
coming season are working out faith-
fully every night. A spirit of keen
competition which pervades each
practice is causing the grapplers to
round into condition faster than
would ordinarily be expected.
Coach Cliff Keen was given the
opportunity of reviewing his prospec-
tive wrestling team last week when
rain stopped freshman football drill.
He paired off his seven letter men
against competitors for their posi-
tions to see how the boys were pro-
The non-letter men are heading for
the coming All-University wrestling
meet which will occur in January.
The showings in this will have much
influence in the final choosing of
squad members.

Capt. Howell's
Poor Showing
Worries Hoyt
Coach Doubtful If Stars;
Can Return To Form In'
Time; Praises Others
Coach Charley Hoyt said yesterday
that with Capt. Bill Howell running
as he has in the last two meets Mich-
igan can have only a mediocre cross
country team this year. Howell has
been handicapped this year by an in-
jury received a year ago. During the
track season last spring, he again
hurt the same leg and this has hin-
dered his running this fall.
He ran seventh in the meet against
Detroit Y. M. C. A. a week ago and
tenth in Saturday's meet with State.;
While Hoyt refuses to say definitely
whether he thinks Howell can return
to last year's form, he does say that
the trouble now is not the injury but
the fact that his star has not been
able to train enough to get into con-
dition for the three and a half-mile
Ostrander Praised
Commenting on the showings made
by the rest of his runners in the
meet with Michigan State last Satur-
day, which the Spartans won, 26 to
31, Hoyt praised Bob Ostrander, Bill
Hill and Rod Howell who finished
second, third and fifth, respectively.
He reiterated again his praise of the
younger Howell, saying, "He ran a
fine race for a sophomore." Hoyt also
said that McMillan, judging from his
previous work, should have placed
better than fifteenth, as he did.
With the triangular meet against
Ohio and Illinois coming Saturday,
Hoyt has only three runners who are
capable of running among the first
ten. He said that four good runners
can carry one poor man, but having
only three good runners, no matter
how good, is a tremendous handicap.
All men who are interested in try-
ing out for the freshman track team
are asked to report by Ken Doherty,
at Yost Field House at 4:30 any
afternoon this week.
St. Louis will sell its municipal
harbor boat, the Erastus Wells, as an
economic measure.

Iowa Squad To Go
To Nebraska For
Game On Saturday
IOWA CITY, Oct. 3L.-(Special)-
Forty-one years have passed since
a hardy band of long-haired and
mustached Iowans, with their crude
canvas suits minus protective pad-
ding, ventured to Omaha to play
football with the University of Ne-
braska's young men.
The University of Iowa students,
wheeling through Nebraska's ranks
with that ruthless revolving wedge
play, won, 22 to 0, from the team
then known as the Bugeaters. *
New Generation Plays
Now a new generation of players,
the Hawkeyes of Iowa and the Husk-
ers of Nebraska, are preparing to
play the twenty-first game of the old
series next Saturday in the stadium
at Iowa City.
These Iowa-Nebraska games were
annual fall fixtures before 1920, with
the Huskers taking the majority of
them. Then, after Iowa wins in 1918
and 1919, relations lapsed for eleven
years, to be renewed in 1930 with
another Hawkeye triumph.
Has Seven Juniors
Nebraska now has a team of seven
juniors and four seniors, defenders
of the Big Six championship-a fast
eleven equipped with a running,
passing and plunging attack.
Back from the intersection game
at Washington, D. C., the Hawkeye
team this week will learn how to stop
the 197-pound George Sauer, full-
back, and lithe and light Chris
Mathis, whose speed dashes net many
Water Polo, Hard Work
Mark Swimming Drills
Plenty of water polo and hard
work have been featuring the pre-
season practices of Coach Matt
Mann's varsity swimming squad. The
natators have been working out daily
in the intramural swimming pool,
and are fast rounding into condition
for the coming season.
The last year's intercollegiate
champions were not especially hard
hit by graduation. Sprint positions
vacated by Ivan Smith, and Bob
Ladd will probably be capably filled
by some of the sophomore prospects.


N THREE of the last five games,
Sport Writers have allowed that
Michigan has been out-charged, out-
blocked, out-played, out-generaled
and generally out-everything. It
seems to us that it is about time for
those same Sport Writers to pay-off
Michigan for winning these five
Modern football pays off on passes
and Michigan has been paying-off
with aerial scores. Winning ball
games is the aim of any team and if
Michigan can do it without the ex-
penditure of the greater effort, so
much the better.
It is granted that Maize and
Blue opponents often gain con-
siderable amount of ground in
midfield but the Wolverines could
easily stop that by shooting Ber-
nard into the line, making it a
seven-man forward wall. To do
this is to weaken the pass de-
fense which is more important.
A four-man pass defense could not
stop all of the passes and one or two

would go for touchdowns while the
few yards lost in mid-field are re-
latively unimportant. This is the
point that those that harp upon
Michigan's being out-everything seem
to miss. A

J OINING the lists of second-guess-
ers we still think that Newman
is an All-American, even after Sat-
urday's game. It is true that his
passes were off and that his runback
of punts was below his usual stand-
ard but still there are reasons.
On the fourth play of the second
quarter, Purnell punted to Newman
on his 28-yard marker and he re-
turned it to the 49, a runback- of 21
yards through five Princeton line-
men. However this play was recalled
as Michigan was offside. Tired from
his exertions, Newman had to jump
back to safety position and take the
next punt which came about thirty-
seconds later.
This time he mussed up the
catch and Fairman recovered.

The loss of the ball was probably
a break for Princeton but when
they made a first down, and then
the touchdown, they deserved the
score. Newman was shaken up
by the fact that his misplay was
responsible for the points.
There were four excellent reasons
why Michigan's passing attack did
not click. Three of them were Prince-
ton linemen and the fourth was the
weather. Captain Josh Billings, Bill
Fairman, and Garrett were the
Princeton linemen that did the dam-
age. All three of them rushed New-
man before he had time to locate his
receivers and consequently he threw
the ball where he thought they
would be instead of where they were.
Furthermore the Princeton line-
men did not simply jump into the air
in the chance of batting the ball to
the ground, but tackled Newman. He
'cnew that he would hit the ground
)n every pass, and allowing for this,
ie heaved the ball over the heads of
the receivers.
ALTHOUGH most people will not
agree with us, Herman Everhar-
dus played his best game of the sea-
son. His blocking was the best of any
member of the backfield and the few
times that he had a chance, he went
places with the ball. Twice he was
stopped at the line of scrimmage by
pileups but on the other two occa-
sions that he carried the ball he
made 11 yards. The coaches were
highly pleased with his performance
and the local critics are in unanam-
ious accord in saying that it was
his best game of the year.
