duel involving Pitt and Stanford, and
scattering important games in the
south and southwest -headline the
waning football season's slender pro-

OUT ON THE West Coast Michigan
is favored for the Rose Bowl
game, especially after the withdrawal
of Army. Sport writers out there
point to the excellent three-year rec-
ord and to the fame of Michigan's
outstanding players as definite rea-
sons for the match.
Would Out-draw All Else
There is little doubt that Michigan
would out-draw any other team for
the game if scheduled. No other
team in the country has as much
color in the lineup as the three All-
Americans, Captain Ivan Williamson,
Harry Newman, and Charles Ber-
This array of stars would draw the
customers through the turnstiles on
the West Coast even if they did not
also represent Hurry-Up Yost, Harry
Kipke and Michigan fo tball.
* * *
IN REALITY three Michigan men
deserve All-American honors. Cap-
tain Williamson is a great end in a
year of great ends. Chuck Bernard
is the best center in the country yet
because he is a junior and has an-
other year, will probably be side-
tracked in favor of Gracey of Van-
derbilt who is a senior, or Kildane of
Brown who is captain of the Bears.
Even if Bernard does not gain the
coveted honors he has the absolute
assurance that he will be the 1933
All-American pivot man.
Newman is "in" as the All-Amer-
ican quarterback on the best teams.
We feel that in Grantland Rice's
team Newman will be the number
one man. If they decide to use an-
other Michigan man it will be Wil-
liamson instead of Bernard, but it is
doubtful if they will use two from
However, if politics were eliminated
from selections, Michigan would have
three All-Americans, Newman, Ber-
nard, and Williamson, who outrank
all others for their positions.

"YOU ASSERT that Harry Newman
is without equal in the last de-
cade as a passer, except Friedman,
possibly, although many rate Harry
"Admitting that Newman is per-
haps the most outstanding quarter-
back in the country today, and that
his playing has often provided the
only thrills presented under the
Michigan style of play, has the writer
taken into consideration the fact that
there have been passers who were
not members of Michigan teams?
What about Frank Carideo, "Brick"
Muller, and Ernie Nevers, just to
mention a few? Surely it is absurd to
rate Newman above Carideo, who
was probably the greatest passer as
well as the greatest quarterback of
"Amother question: Is Fielding H.
Yost coach of the Michigan team, or
is Harry Kipke? At the pep meeting
after the Minnesota game Yost was
introduced before Kipke. A student
might go through four years of
school here (with his eyes open, too)
thinking that Yost instead of Kipke
was coach of the varsity squad.
Friedman Is Authority
Our authority for the statement
that Newman is a better passer than
Friedman is the mighty Benny him-
self who said, "Harry is the best
passer at 40 yards I ever saw, and is
superior to vae."
As to the relative merits of the
other passers we can only accept the
general opinion of coaches and pro-
fessional scouts who have seen all
01 the above-named men in action.
No matter who is the coach, a
great record has been hung up in
the last three years. That is the
important thing. But we are of the
opinion that Harry Kipke is the
coach here and not Yost. However
it must be remembered that Yost
still ranks as one of the greatest
coaches of all-time.
WE WERE TOLD the other day
that Tom Roach, who won a let-
ter here at Michigan some years ago
on the gridiron, is now playing tackle
on the Varsity of Notre Dame.

"IN A RECENT article in Colliers'
Magazine, Grantland Rice called
Ernest Rentner of Northwestern and
Carl Cramer of Ohio State two of the
outstanding backfield men in the
country. He said that Michigan's
fine defense had retarded both men.
"While I hardly dare disagree with
an authority such as Mr. Rice, it is
interesting to note that Rentner had
been patiently omitted from Big Ten
teams by most of the men who have
seen him in action this season.
Cramer Was Not Regular
"As for Cramer, he hasn't even
started regularly, having shared the
Buckeye quarterbacking with Mar-
shall Oliphant, an untried sopho-
"It appears that Mr. Rice has not
seen these men in action, else he
would not be lauding them. Certain-
ly a sport writer with his experience
could not be that wrong if he had
watched the men.

Phi Kappa won the Fraternity
Cross Country championship by plac-+

with only 14 points. Theta Xi came]
in second with 22 points. The event

the semi-finals in water polo Mon-
day night with Alpha Kappa Lambda
to see who plays off with Theta Chi
for the championship next Wednes-
day. Psi Upsilon is the favorite to
win the swimming meet in the semi-
finals for so far this season, it has,
better records for the events. How-

to beat Psi Upsilon in the water polo
A cross country run for indepen-
dent teams will take place on Nov.
To Meet White
Powerful Aggregation Is
Combination Of Haley
And White Star A. C.'s
Michigan hockey fans will have a
royal treat this Tuesday night when
the Varsity ice-hockey team will en-
gage with the White Star A. C., of
Michigan, one of the best amateur
hockey aggregations in this part of
Michigan. White Star is a combina-
tion of last year's Haley A. C. and
White Star A. C. and last Wednes-
day defeated the Mic Macs of Wind-
sor, Canada, who were last year's in-
termediate champions of Canada.
This is expected to be one of the
hardest games this season for the
Wolverines, but according to Coach
Ed Lowry, if they click, they may
beat the Detroiters.
The Michigan starting line-up will
probably include Jewell as goalie,
Chapman and Gaber at defense po-
sitions, co-captains Reid and Cross-
man, and Sherf in the forward line.
The second forward line will consist
of David. Artz,and Stewart, with
Curtis and Coventry as alternates.
Johnny Jewell, a sophomore, will
make his first appearance in the line-
up as goalie. Last year, with the
graduation of Captain Tompkins, it
was feared that Michigan would miss
him, but Jewell has improved vastly
and now is considered as good as
Another sophomore appearing in
the lineup is Johnny' Sherf at the
wing position on the Varsity. Sherf,
due to exceptional playing last year
on the Freshman squad and still bet-
ter work this year replaced David,
varsity man, as a forward. Gaber,
captain-elect for the '28 team here,
is back on the team after he had to
drop out in that year. He was one
of the stars of the 1927 team.
Co-captains Reid and Crossman
are expected to play as well as they
have in the past. Ted Chapman is
also expected to keep up the good
work where he left off last year.
The game will start at 8:00 p. m.
at the Coliseum. The admissions for
the students and the faculty will be
35 cents with the presentation of the
identification card and 75 cents for
the general public.

the women's intramural swimming
meet on Jan. 24. . A widening of the
field of events has enlarged the num-
ber to ten.

Members of the winning team will re-
ceive medals. The runners-up will
For Initial Meet
Approximately 75 freshman track
candidates have been working out at
Yost Field House for the past two
weeks under the direction of Coach
At present the yearling hopefuls
are concentrating on getting into
condition for the first trial meet to be
held Dec. 8. Doherty plans to divide
the men into two approximately
equal squads for the meet, in order
to permit him to get a line on what
they can do under actual meet con-
Although the squad this year has
no such outstanding performer as
Willis Ward was last season the fact
does not discourage Doherty who said
that such an athlete as Ward appears
only about every seventy-five years.
This year's team should be a much
better balanced outfit than last
year's, o:setting the lack of individ-.
Doherty refused to name any out-
itanding performers at this early
:ate, preferring to wait until after
she first run, but did admit that he
had several menhinhthe fielddevents
with fine high school records. He
predicted that the team would be
strong in the weight events, the pole
vault and themiddle distances, with
probable weaknesses in the sprints
Teams To Begin
Interclass basketball, the chief in-
door sport for women, will start Mon-
day, Nov. 28, when the women of all
four classes begin practice which will
last until a week after Christmas
vacation in preparation for the an-
nual Interclass tournament.
There has been a change made in
the days for each class practice. The
freshmen and seniors will use the
gym every Monday and Wednesday,
while the juniors and sophomores will
practice Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Practices begin at 4:15 p. m. as
usual. Every player who wishes to
represent her class on the teams
chosen at the end of practices must
attend -six of the eight sessions held.
A medical o. k. from the Health
Service is necessary for every player.
This is to be presented to the class
managers at the first practice.
Girls cannot, as in the case of In-
terclass hockey, substitute hours of
basketball practice or participation
on the class teams for the physical

Putters, Pole Vaulters
Coach Charlie Hoyt yesterday is-
sued the first call for Varsity track
candidates for the indoor season.
Last year letter winners and all
other candidates are asked to report
to Hoyt at the Yost Field House
Several men have been working
out all Fall, getting into shape, but
those who haven't yet reported are
asked to do so Monday when the
squad will start practice as a whole.
Hoyt plans to send his charges
through two weeks of intensive
daily practice before the Christmas
holidays interrupt the work of two
The coach will concentrate partic-
ularly on developing some sprinters,
shot putters and pole vaulters to re-
place those lost through graduation.
There will be no letter men return-
ing in these two events.
The team should be strong in the
hurdles with Eggleston from last
year's team returning. He will have
some able mates in Pantlind and
Ward, who starred on Coach Doher-
ty's freshman squad last year. De-
Baker and Ellerby are the returning
lettermen among the quarter milers.
Half milers are Turner and Ellerby.
Turner, who competed in the Olym-
pics this summer, should be able to
show his heels to any runner in the
In the high jump Hoyt has Moisio,
a native of Finland, who made the
team last year. Ward, too, is sched-
uled to compete in the high jump,

legs, he should give any jumper in
the country a real battle. Rod Cox
will transfer his activities from the
football field to compete again in the
