Physical Ed. And
Frosh Football
Teams To Meet
Latest Statistics Dope The
Physicals As Underdogs;
Material Is Scarce
Keen's Squad Large

Freshman Background
Freshman Background;
At 4 p.im. today Coach Cliff Keen's
freshman football squad meets Coach
Wally Weber's physical ed. team in
their annual classic game.
According to the latest statistics,
the physical ed. team will be the
yiderdogs. Coach Weber has had
one of the smallest classes in the last
couple of years to pick an eleven
from, this class numbering only 19
men. Of these 19 men, not all are
interested in football. On the other
hand, Coach Keen has a much large
squad, all of which are vitally inter
ested in football. Besides, the fresh-
men have had much more competi
tive work against the "B" team and
the Varsity, and have a greater num-
ber of substitutes to draw from.
Name Phi.-Ed. Lineup
The starting lineup for the Phi.-
Eds. will be Malesavitch and Tomag-
ho at ends, Viergiver and Lahti at
tackles, Phillinger and Fiero at guard
positions, Jablonski at center, Paul-
son at quarter, Nelson - at full, and
either Rudness, Candy or Springer
at half.
Yesterday, Coach Keen put his
squad through practice touching up
on plays and going over signals. On
the first team, he had Hahn and
Bolus - working at quarter, with the
former probably starting today. At
half, many players were tried includ-
ing Triplehorn, Wallbridge and Stet-
son, with the first two starting to-
morrow. Triplehorn has recovered
from the charley-horse he had last
week. Sweet, one of the best of the
backs, will not play because of in-
juries received two weeks ago.
Schultz Recovers
In the line, Schultz, apparently re-
covered from a neck injury gotten
last week, will begin the game at cen-
ter. Wells and Renauld will work at
the guard positions, Swanson and
Stone at tackles, and either Adams,
Cavan, Anderson or Muello at the
Closely Matched Teams
Reach Quarter-Finals
With eight teams almost evenly
matched, the women's hockey tour-
nament goes into the quarter finals
this afternoon. Semi-finals will be
finished by the endof the week, and
finals will be played off the begin-
ning of next week.
In the quarter-finals Alpha Xi
Delta will play Jordan, Helen New-
berry meets Pi Phi, Tri Delta plays
Chi Omega, and Kappa Delta meets
Alpha Epsilon Phi.
The title race this year will be a
close one, according to Marie Hart-
wig, faculty adviser for hockey. Only
one game, that of Chi Omega against
Zeta Tau Alpha, was won by a wide

Semi-Finals Wednesday
Delta Sigma Phi meets Theta Xi
tomorrow in a speedball game to de-
cide who will oppose Alpha Kappa

A. K. L.'s are favored to repeat their
victories of the past three years, and
thus gain the lead in the competition.
for the All-Year trophy.
The Delta Sigs won the right to
play in the finals by defeating Sigma
Chi in the playoff game last Friday,
13-2, while the A. K. L.'s went to the
finals by beating the team from Delta
Upsilon. A consolation tourney for
teams beaten in the league elimina-
tions will be started tomorrow night.

Auto Champion in Doubt
At Close Of Race Season
OAKLAND, Calif., Nov 14.--(f)-
No one seems to know who the Na-
tional Dirt Track champion of the
United States is, since Bob Carey fin-
ished second Sunday to 'Wild Bill'
Cummings. The point score is so close
that it will have to be rechecked be-
fore the winner is announced. Fred
Frame held the previous lead.

T HE REAL SCORE of the Mich-'
igan-Chicago game was 14-0. Al-
though no paper carried this and
the referee did not allow it, the two
extra points were due to a safety
scored in the last play of the game.
Petoskey kicked over the goal line
and Chicago let the ball go for awhile
until a Maroon back finally decided
to run the ball out. He went back,
scooped up the ball and was tackled
before he crossed the line. This con-
stitutes a safety. If he had downed
the ball it would have been a touch-
back and if Michigan had downed
the ball it would have been a touch-
down. But in trying to run the ball
out, Chicago should have been scor-
ed the safety.
In the Ohio State-Pennsylvania
game two Penn backs watched the
kick-off go over the goal line and saw
the kicker himself recover the ball
for a touchdown.
THE CHICAGO GAME was typical
of Michigan. A strong defense,
superior kicking, and resting on a
small lead were the elements that
were similar to Michigan's usual
game. Only once did the Midway
eleven penetrate the center of the
field, as we remember it, and that
was for four yards only.
vember" football player. That is,
he is at his best during the last
month of the season, being known
as a slow starter. His long, high
punts kept Chicago in the hole
throughout the game. Although he
does not place them as well as Re-
geczi has done in the past, his su-
perior height and greater distance
overcome this one weakness.
His line plunging, off-tackle
smashes, and end runs were the best
of the season. The
lanky halfback
skirted the ends
and slipped
through tackle as
no Michigan back
has done this sea-
son. With Stanley
Fay leading the
play he made more
yards than when
Ted Petoskey was
doing it.
EVERNRR4Dt/J However Herm
drew more praise as a kicker. The
Chicago backs ran them back for 95
yards or so, but it must. be remem-
bered that in Captain Birney, Chi-
-ago had the best blocking halfback
in the Conference to clear a path for
the ball-toter.

S MICHIGAN on the skids? A ru-
mor to this effect has been cir-
3ulated around the campus for sev-
eral weeks. The proponents point out
that since the Ohio State tussle,
Michigan has played poorly.
In defense of this opinion Mich-
gan's record against Princeton, In-
diana, and Chicago may be cited.
Scores of 14-7, 77-0, 12-0, would not
seem to indicate that Michigan was
he great eleven that upset Michigan
5tate 26-0 and Northwestern 15-6.
Others are of the opinion that
Michigan is merely on a level, coast-
ing along until Minnesota. If this is
so then the coaches will be bearing
down this week in practice in an ef-
fort to pep up the team, into early
season form.
There are to pertinent facts that
should be mentioned in this regard.
Michigan's defense is getting better
and better and Chicago was able to
stop the Wolverine passing attack
Chicago was able to make, 8, 9 and
11, first downs against the leading
Big Ten teams but could only regis-
ter two against Michigan. Wistert
and Austin looked good against the
Maroon off-tackle slants while Min-
nesota will have four gaurds to watch
instead of three as John Kowalik is

ready to assume his old job on the
left side of the line.

YOU SEEM to have a phenomenal
knowledge of Michigan football
tactics, so will you please tell for the
benefit of myself and all the other
football ignorants, why Newman
when it was the fourth down, on the
15-yard line, and but one yard to
go for a first . . . sent a pass that s
spoiled the chance? Why didn't he
try for the yard and first down?
Also, why in the name of time doesn't
the team try to kick goal when they C
are fairly close? . ..c
"In regard to this business of one
yard to go for a first down, is New-
man so obsessed with Yost's "Touch-
downs, not first downs" idea that he
tries to pass in hopes that the oppo-
sition will completely expect a rush
for downs, that a pass may cause an
easy touchdown by the receiver?"
If Newman has any justification
for his action it might lie in the fact
that he was trying the unexpected.
Chicago's line had been holding all
afternoon. Chicago 1
was almost posi-
tive that he'd hit
the line so they
drew in their cen-
ter into the line
and pulled the sec-
ondary up close.
In other words
Chicago did the
same thing that l
enables any team
Aawyjny ,to tighten up on
the goal line. New-
man knowing this, .took a long shot c
and lost. Why he did not try an end
run, we do not know. But that is
Newman all over-the unexpected. 1
That is his value to the team, outside
of his passing. It is his unexpected-
ness that in part won for Michigan, t
if they beat Minnesota, three Con-
ference titles.

O QUOTE the Cincinnati Post: 1
"Sports writers who cover West-
ern Conference games say less effort 1
is made to look after their wants in 1
the press box at Michigan than any-
where else in the circuit."
When rain and snow settles on 1
one's papers, when the wind sweeps t
them off the narrow shelf onto a wet
floor, it is no. wonder that sports
writers consider Michigan's facilities
for the press as decidedly inadequate. j
It will feat 350 which is much
larger than necessary. Older sport
critics informed us last Saturday that
it was a den of politicians and that
the men working the game were
often interf erred with by the non-f
working occupants. yh
"TED PETOSKEY, as a fullback
makes a good end," thus reads a
letter. It points out that the best run
that Everhardus made all afternoon
against Chicago was the one when
Pete faked away and Evie went on
alone. It concludes that Fay did look1
much better leading plays than Pe-
toskey did.
