Freshman Gridders Down Physical Ed Team 6-0 In Polar


Yearlings Win
In Last Period
With Long Run
Dave Hunn, Star Quarter,
Wades Through Slush
35 Yards To Score
Hard-Fought Game
Aggressive Plebe Squad
Takes Offensive For
Most Of Contest
After having pushed the fight for
three periods, the Freshman football
team eked out a 6 to 0 victory over
the Physical Education eleven on
Ferry Field, yesterday afternoon.
Dave Hunn, star quarterback from
Elkhart, Ind., provided the winning
punch when he raced 35 yards for
the only score, after taking a punt
off the toe of "Skinny" Nelson.
Although the frosh had everything
their own way on the offensive they
were never able to cross the Phys-Ed
o al line until shortly after the open-
irig of the final quarter.
Yearlings Aggressive
P'evious to registering their lone
toc:hdown the winning team had
marched straight down the field, reg-
istering four first downs, and they
seemed headed for a score. Hunn's
pass to fullback Remias was two
yrds short of the line, however.
Nelson promptly punted from be-
hi.d his own goal line, Hunn taking
the ball on the right side of the field,
cutting straight across, eluding three
tacklers, and galloped down to cross
the goal line on the left side.
The yearling line held the losing
squad to but a pair of first downs,
the last one coming late in the game
on a 40-yard forward pass. The
Freshmen seemed able to break
through the Physical Ed tackles at
Snow made the field slippery and
uncertain, and as the precipitation
continued throughout the game,
passing was almost impossible. De-
spite the bad weather the backs kept
their footing well and fumbles were
surprisingly infrequent.'
The game was clean, there being
but four penalties for offside and a
pair of incomplete forward passes.
Triplehorn Also Stars
Triplehorn and Hunn starred for
the victorious frosh, the former
breaking through the line consist-
ently. Two long runs late in the
second period providing the yearlings
with their first 'scoring opportunity.
Wells and Stone stood out in the
For the Physical Education team,
which, it is reported, had not scrim-
maged all year due to lack of men,
Nelson, at fullback, and Tomagno at
end, played the best football.
There was only one major casualty,
that to Swanson, a frosh tackle, who
injured his leg.

Allen Leads Cage
Squad Scorers In
Practice Sessions
Michigan's Varsity basketeers have
started their practice sessions in the
field house in preparation for the
coming basketball season. In the
squad of 20 men now out for practice
there are few outstanding men. Three
men from last year's freshman team
who have shown to the best ad-
vantage in practices so far are:
Plumer, Black, and Tietlebaum.
From the last year's Varsity squad
the most outstanding men are: Gar-
ner, Petrie, Eveland, Altenhof, and
Allen. Of these Allen has'-en far
the best, having been the high scorer
in the practice scrimmages for the
last few nights. After football sea-
son there will probably be several
more men from last year's squad.
So far these are the only men who
have had previous experience on the
Varsity teams who have reported for

Francis Lund, sophomore halfback, has joined two experienced veterans to make a formidable ball-
carrying trio in the University of Minnesota backfield. Jack Manders, plunging fullback, and Walter Haas,
captain of the Gopher team, are the other members of a combination which threatens to provide the Wolver-
ines with plenty of opposition in Saturday's game. Manders won a place on the 1931 all-conference eleven
and Captain Haas is one of the best blocking halfbacks in the Western Conference.
Psi U Swimmers
By JOHN THOMAS Reach Semi-Finals

"THE DAY 1S Nov. 13, 1932. I've
been waiting 27 years for this
day, the day I saw Michigan beat
Chicago . . . Many things have hap-
pened. But one memory has survived
a crisp fall afternoon in Chicago
when a Michigan team that for three
years had gone through opponents
becomes like an irresistible jugger-
"We took a beating from the one
team we'd have hated worst to lose
to. The score, 2-0, was an aggrava-
tion-rather than a defeat, an an-
noyance that rankled through the 27
"Some details persist-a great line
so strong that two tackles and two
guards were all that were needed
against the five linemen of any op-
ponent-leaving the great Germany
Schultz as a roving clubber.
"Though roving seems a mild workI
for the young gent who graduated
magna cum laude from a boiler shop
in Fort Wayne, Germany didn't rove.
He lurked behind the line, a sinister
menace to line bucks-a threat even
to a well-guarded punter..
Germany Saw Game
"I saw Germany again this after-
noon before the game. He has mel-
lowed with the years. We thought at
the time that George Ade had model-
ed Ole Skejarson of his Sewash 'Col-
lege tales on Germany Schultz. But
we in turn could tell the true story
)f the time the temporary bleachers
collapsed at the Wisconsin game and
everyone rushed down and the peo-
ple in front were being crushed
against the wire fence and
two football teams raced to the spot;
and pulled the cement posts literally
out by the roots and prevented a
catastrophe-and how when the ex-
citement had quieted down, one turn-
ed back to the field to find Germany
Schultz in midfield guarding theI
ball. Yost had told him to stay with
the ball.]
"Anyhow in this game of 1905, Yost
was able to initiate the experiment o.<
a roving center largely because big
Joe Curtis was playing left tackle.,
Joe was good for any four men who
might be sent against him any au-
tumn afternoon. But Eckersall had
dropped back to punt (I'm telling
you this was in the days when foot-
ball was being played and I men-
tion the fact that Willie Heston was
playing half and young long-legged
John Garrells, split to the breast
bone, played an end) and Joe crash-
ed through, jumped with arms out-
stretched to block the punt and land-
ed all over Eckie-and the referee,
whose name does not survive the
years in my memory, sent Joe to the
bench for unnecessary roughness.
Joe Curtis Saw Game
"Joe Curtis, as square and decent
a chap asever played football-I saw
Joe too today and tried to tell him in
a slap on the back how much I en-
joyed today's game and why. Joe is
a bit older, stronger, more assured,
pretty much of a man, I'd judge.
"Anyhow with Joe out of the line,

Schultz went back to his old position
on defense and Chicago pointed to
Joe's side of the line unmercifully
and the game rode at even -odds
against Chicago who of all teams in
the Conference, we hated with the
fierce hatred of under-graduate days.
"And Denny Clark who's dead now
taking a punt on the three yard line
and trying to run it out-and being
hit simultaneously by two Chicago
tacklers- and being thrown back of
the goal line for the only score of
the game. I passed Denny in the
train that night sitting in the car,
staring out the window, gripping and
ungripping his hands.
"For three years Michigan had rid-
den rough shod over the best on the
schedule making a point of score to
every minute of play. Do you realize
how we hated to lose finally and to
Bernard Gets Help
"So I knelt today along side Ber-
nard, and I leaned over Everhardus'
shoulder and I raced behind Harry
Newman as he dodged almost like
another Heston through a 'broken
"There was a suggestion of Johnny
Garrels in Williamson and in Petos-
key. But we didn't break through.
Thanks to Newman's tricky run, we
held the lead and I knew we would
win But I wanted a dozen touch-
downs, not a meagre one, for of all
the games Michigan had played since
with Chicago, this was the first I'd
"There was a minute, only to play
and smart people were moving out
to the parking areas but I wouldn't
leave. And then it happened.
"You know many things happen
in the year ang the things we think
important in college seem less so as
time passes. But when Harry New-
man passed Chicago offstride in the
last 20 seconds of play, and then on
the fourth down with seven to go-
took the ball for an end run and
planked it back of the goal lines-
well, I think some of the under-grad-
uates around me wondered if the dig-
nified oldster of fifty hadn't suddenly
