Wolves Stress
Pass Attack For
Saturday's Game
Aerial Offense Hindered
By Cold Weather; Fay,
Petoskey In Action
Regeezi At Fullback
Varsity Reserves Offer De-
termined Opposition To
Regulars' Passes
Spurred on by a bitter wind and
a running crossfire of anti-overcon-
fidence chatter from the coaches,
Michigan's Varsity brushed up on the
Hoosier campaign with an extensive
forward pass drill on the offense,
yesterday afternoon.
Against a defensive team of re-
serve men offering some real inter-
ference, the Wolverine performance
was not up to the standard set by
them in the Field House Monday by
quite a wide margin. Conditions on
South Ferry Field, however, dupli-
cated the worst of playing weather
for the Maize and Blue aerial attack.
Passes Incomplete
Time and again passes were in-
completed because ofsthe numbed
fingers of the passers and the re-
ceivers, while mistakes in signals and
plays account for a number of mis-
cues. In the meanwhile, the mentors
volubly brought out a number of
points including the facts that the
team was not on its toes ,that In-
diana was tough; and that Michigan
was headed for an upset unless dras-
tic steps were taken by members of
the team.
Yesterday marked the return of
Mitch Regeczi, halfback and star
punter of the Michigan eleven to the
lineup in active work. He sustained
an injury in the Princeton game.
Stan Fay was running through plays
with the Varsity, but he favored his
injured side by wearing a protective
pad. It seems obvious that he will
not play unless Coach Kipke feels
that the stocky half is really needed.
Nagurski Leads Field
In Pro Ground-Gaining
NEW YORK, Nov. 2.--)--Bronko
Nagurski, plunging fullback of the
Chicago Bears, now leads the field
in the race for ground-gaining hon
ors in the National Professional Foot
Ball League. The former Minnesota
ace has gained 247 yards for an av-
erage of better than five yards a clip.
.Earl (Dutch) Clark, of Portsmouth,
and Ken Strong, at Stapleton, are
tied for second place. They each
have gained 339 yards, but their av-
erage is lower than Nagurski's. Jack
Grossman, of Brooklyn, leads in total
points with 30.
Smeaton Returns To
Old Refereeing Post
MONTREAL, Que., Nov. 2.-(P--
Cooper Smeaton has rejoined the
staff of referees of the National
Hockey League. The former referee-
in-chief retired toward the close of
last season, but has reconsidered his
retirement. President Frank Calder
said the staff again would consist
of Smeaton, Hewitson, Mallinson,
Daigneault, Cleghorn, C a m e r o n,
Goodman, Romeril and Stewart.

The freshman hill and dale men
have been pointing toward this race
since the opening of the season, and
competition will undoubtedly be bit-

$110 W ill Be ri eGe
Price Of Game
Wilth Hoosiers
BLOOMINGTON ,d.Nov. 2.--(A)
-Z. G. Clevenger, Indiana U. ath-
letic director, announced today a de-
cision to make available 4,000 seats
for Saturday's game with Michigan
at $1.10 each, including tax. The re-
duction, representing the lowest price
ever charged for a Western Confer-,
ence game here, was decided on,
Clevenger said, after telegraphic
communication with Fielding H.E
Chicgo Eleven
Bars Path Of
Defeat By Indiana Spurs
Staggmen In Preparing
For Battle With Purdue
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Nov. 2.-(Spe-
cial)--A hard fighting Chicago eleven
that turned in impressive perform-
ances against Yale, and Indiana,
looms in the path of Purdue's unde-
feated gridiron squad this SaturdayE
as the Boilermakers re-enter the Big
Ten chase after devoting a week-end
to intersectional activities. They de-
feated New York University, 34 to 9.
The Maroons, who have always
beern the Boilermaker nemesis, after
getting away to a brilliant start in
the current campaign, suffered their
first defeat of the season Saturday,
in an upset battle with Illinois, and
are regarded as a formidable obstacle
in the Boilermakers' path.
The game will renew for the thirty-
eighth time one of the most tradi-
tional series of the Big Ten, a series
that was started back in 1892, the
first year of Amos Alonzo Stagg's
long and illustrious coaching regime.
Through the series Chicago has
managed to dampen Purdue hopes at
unexpected moments, and the Ma-
roons have 27 victories to their credit
against nine for Purdue and one tie.
In 1927, just as this week, the Boiler-
makers returned from an impressive
intersectional triumph against Har-
vard only to have the Maroons hand
out a 7 to 6 defeat.

Son Born To Mr.'
And Mrs. Wally
Weber Tuesday
Coach Prophesies That
Boy Will Be Wolverine
Fullback In 1952
The Prospects for a good Wolver-
ine football team in 1952 brightened
Tuesday when a son was born to Mr.
and Mrs. Wally Weber. Weber, who
played at fullback for Michigan sev-
eral years ago and is at present a
member of the coaching staff, said'
that the boy was sure to be fullback,
since he started out right by holler-
ing, "Block, block, block."
Robert Walter Weber, as they plan
to name him, was born at 12:12 a. m.
and weighed seven pounds and twelve
ounces. Wally said, "He's quite a kid,
all right. He has a good build and
nice legs for line plunging."
"All the boys down at the Field
held a sort of rally when they heard
the news. They all started making
plans for Bob when he gets old
enough to play football," Weber said.
Among the "boys" that congratulat-
ed the proud father were Fielding H.
Yost, Harry Kipke and the rest of
the coaching staff.
According to Wally there was a
tremendous rush for birthday cigars'
and he distributed "two or three fists,
full"-and Wally's fists are not small.
Mrs. Weber and the baby are at St.
Joseph Mercy hospital.
Flip Of Coin Decides
Indian Starting Lineup
Nov. 2.-()--It is unlikely Glenn
"Pop" Warner would be caught nap-
ping insofar as tricks of the gridiron
go, but he was up against it in choos-
ing his first string right end to start
against Southern California when
Stanford played host to the Trojans.
With two boys of equal ability, theE
Indian mentor finally told them to
flip a coin to decide which would
start the game.

chest injury may keep him out of
the Indiana game Saturday. He will,
however, be on reserve in case he is
seriously needed.
American Association
Head Sued By Umpire
MILWAUKEE, Wis., Nov. 2.-(M)-
The charge of J. A. (Jim) Murray, of
West Allis, former baseball umpire,
that Thomas J. Hickey, president of
the American Association, "black-.
listed" him to prevent him obtaining
an umpiring position in any organ-
v ted league, will be aired in circuit
court here Nov. 28.
Murray is suing Hickey for $25,000
damages. He quotes from a letter
which he said he received from
Hickey Sept. 18, 1929, as follows:
"Now just read this letter over
again so you can see yourself as I
;ee you, and just remember I will
- ork just as hard from now on to
keep you from securing a position as
I worked to secure one for you."
Hickey has entered a general de-
nial of the charges.

ACCORDING to the Princetonian,
only one man stood out for
Michigan in the game. He is Roger

CHUCK DeBAKER returned an

This fall the Hart Schaffner
& Marx Emblem wins by the
greatest majority in history,
because this year Hart Schaff-
ner & Marx give you

ends in the Western Confer-
ence this autumn. Ivan Williamson
leads the list and the number two
man is Fitshugh Lyons, the giant
colored boy at Indiana. He weighs
200 pounds and is fast. He rivals
Bennie Oosterbaan in sensational
pass receiving. Most of Indiana's suc-
cess this season has been due to his
'all-around play.
Moss of Purdue rates high
among the ends as does Petoskey
while he was in the lineup at a
flank position. Fend of North-
western and Robinson of Minne-
sota are two others who will be
in the running when the post-
season honors are distributed.
Michigan knows Moss of two
years ago and all of the others
will be met this year.
Fencl did not do much damage
but Robinson and Lyons have been
scouted thoroughly as they are dan-
gerous men. In the open, either man
can easily go on for the six points.
Michigan's job will be to keep them
out of the clear, or better yet to de-
stroy their passing before it gets
started as Princeton did.
