Eleven sophomores, representing
Michigan's Junior Varsity, will take
the field at 10 a. m. today in the
opening football game of the sea-
son. Their opponents will be Cen-
tral State Teachers' College.
The 'B' team is lacking in offensive
power, as the backfield is composed
entirely of untried men, and has
spent the better part of the week in
scrimmages against the V a r s i t y,
rather than preparing for its own
contest.
Last season the Bearcats were han-
dily defeated by the Wolverine Var-
sity in the first game of the year,
but, boasting a veteran squad, they
are given a slight edge over the
Maize-and-Blue jayvees.
Will Use Entire Squad
Coach Ray Courtright expects to
use his full squad of 19 men in the
game, to prepare them better for the
coming contests. The end position
appears to be the least of his wor-
ries, as he has four men of practi-
cally equal ability in Van Akkeran,
Antell, Roberts, and Ottoman. The
first two men were named as proba-
ble starters, but all of the quartet
are bound to see a good share of the
action., The center of the line is well
taken care of by Russell Fuog, a
made-over tackle, while McClintock
and Ross are available for reserve
duty at the pivot position.
Fuog will be flanked by two prom-
ising guards, Bill Borgmann and
Charles Beard. The reserve at the
guard post is Pomeroy. Tage Ja-
cobson, star of last season's fresh-
man squad, and Hilton Ponto are
due to get the call at the tackle po-
sitions. Kreger and McClintic, also
a sparekcenter, will do the relief work
at tackle.
Backfield Is Problem
An abundance of good backs makes
the selection of four starters diffi-
cult. Little Lee Shaw, who has dis-
tinguished himself in practice as a
pass receiver, is due to get the call
at quarterback. Frank Zendzian and
Charles Greening will probably start
the game at the half back positions,
with Jacobs as a possible substitute.
Wallace Frankowski is booked to
open the game at the fullback po-
sition. Eli- Soodik wil also seek ac-
tion as a fullback.

Football Heroes'
Nicknames Appear
To Be Misnomers
Names heard around the locker
room and showers frequented by the
football squad probably would be
confusing to a stranger unfamiliar
with the originals, for they share
the inconsistency characteristic of all
nicknames.
Undoubtedly the most startling of
all is the effeminate "Ivy" which
persists in following Captain Ivan
Williamson, whom sports writers love
to make known as "Ivan the Terri-
ble."
Herman Everhardus, the Kalama-
zoo punter, goes by the name of "Ev-
vy " "Chappie" refers not to a visit-
ing Londoner, but to Harvey Chap-
man. Petoskey is shortened to
"Pete," Westover to "Westy," and'
honor student, but just the same it
is hard to think of "Ivy" blocking
a punt or emerging from the bot-
tom of a scrimmage pile.

Bob Monnett, stellar halfback of Michigan State's eleven, will un-
doubtedly be one of the key men in the game here this afternoon. He
and Eliowitz are two of the flashy runners whom Michigan will have to
stop if the Wolves are to win. Monnett is not only a clever runner in
a broken field, but also an accurate place-kicker who will make State's
possession of the ball within the Maize and Blue 35-yard line a con-
stant threat.

Tennis Coach
Ranks Players;
Snell Is First
21 Men Selected To Try
Out For Varsity; Eight
'B' Teamers Get Call
Coach John Johnstone yesterday
announced - the rankings of' the 21
men whom he has invited to try out
for the Varsity tennis team this year.
He plans to have these men com-
pete among themselves during the
fall and winter in an attempt to
rank them accurately before the ten-
nis season comes around.
Of the players listed, one was from
last year's Varsity, eight from the
"B" team, and twelve from the fresh-
man team. Last year's lone veteran
was Dick Snell, captain-elect, whom
Johnstone ranked at number one po-
sition for this year.
Men from last year's Jayvee team
occupied the next seven berths, be-
ing, in the order Johnstone ranked
them: Joe Appelt, captain of the
"B's," Charles Nisen, Ralph Baldwin,
Clint Sanduskey, Bud Root, Nathan
Waring,' and John Corey.
In ninth and tenth positions John-
stone placed the two outstanding
freshmen from last year, Seymour
Siegel and Donald Nichols. He called
them the "individual stars among the
freshmen players," intimating that
they might have been ranked higher
if he had known more about them.
Harvey Durand, a "B" last year,
was in eleventh place, followed by
Bob Muzzy, a sophomore; and Emil
Schnap, who was a reserve on the
"B" team. The list concluded with
nine men who won numerals last
year: Jack Stein, Milton Eskowitz,
Frank Bristol, Ralph Walker, Al Sass,
Victor Keyser, Max Frisinger and Joe
Lesser.
Johnstone concluded, "They all
must win their matches. I won't
give any positions on past records."
Speedball Is Popular
Sport On I-M Program
Speedball will be one of the most
popular games offered this fall by the
Intramural department, advance re-
ports indicate. Last year between
30 and 40 fraternity teams partici-
pated for the championship of the
campus. This fall, it is estimated
that the game will be played by
more than 1,000 students.
The game was founded at Michi-
gan in 1921 by Elmer D. Mitchell,
present Intramural Director, with
the idea of providing an activity
which would attract the students,
hold their interest, and yet be played
with a minimum of expense and dan-
ger.
Speedball is a combination of
soccer, football, and basketball, and
is popular because it permits foot-
work, handwork, and headwork. Thej
kicking element, a very desirable fea-
ture, was borrowed from soccer and
combined with a passing game which
was borrowed from basketball. E

Capt. Thomas Will
Direct Wrestlersa
In Early Practice
With seven Varsity letter-men,
some promising reserve material
from last year's team, and several
outstanding men from last year's
freshman squad turning out for the
initial wrestling practice of the sea-
son Monday, Coach Clifford Keen
hopes to have a strong and expe-
rienced team to pit against this
year's opposition.
Coach Keen's time being taken up
by the freshman football squad, Cap-
tain Thomas will take charge of the
practice sessions until Coach Ray
Fisher returns to relieve Coach Keen
of 'his football coaching duties.
Blair Thomas, one of the out-
standing Big Ten wrestlers in the
135-pound class, will captain the
team this year. Among the return-
ing letter-men are Art Mosier in the
155-pound class, Ed Wilson in the
165-pound class, and Bob Helliwell
in the 145-pound class. Oakley and
Sigwart, wrestle at 126 pounds, and
Joe Landrum is at his best at 118
pounds. John Spoden, a reserve from
last year's team and Cliff Stoddard's
understudy, will wrestle in the
heavyweight class. Hildebrandt and
Rubin, from last year's freshman
team, are expected to make a strong
bid for places on the team.
The feature of this year's sched-
ule is an eastern trip, on which
Michigan will meet two of the most
formidable teams in the east, Penn
State and Navy.
Illinois Will Battle
Case, Miami Today
In Football Opener
URBANA, Ill., Sept. 30.-(Special)
-Grimly observing that he may have
bitten off more than the young Il-
lini can chew, Bob Zuppke has prim-
ed them for their 1932 bow tomor-
row against Coe and Miami-the
first double-header that Illinois has
played since Zuppke stepped from
Oak Park high school in 1913 and
confounded the critics who thought
the big time would be too fast for a
high school coach.
Nevertheless, Zuppke feels the
double bill will be of great value as it
gives him a chance to use many
players whose capabilities otherwise
would still be undetermined.
The twin bill will begin at 1 p. m.
and full-time games will be played.
Coe is no stranger to the stadium
where the Cedar Rapids squad ap-
peared in 1926 and 1928, losing both
times. Last Saturday Coe was upset
by Luther, 6-7,.in the last three min-
utes, but Assistant Coach Sabo, who
observed the fray for the Illini, re-
ported Coe had coasted along in the
lead all the game, Eby using many
new men in order to get ready for
next Saturday's struggle. Eby's teams
are renowned for blocking and tack-
ling, and, with the Illini divided to
take care of two opponents, a brisk
encounter would not be surprising.

Voices Hopes
For Good Year
Captain's Recovery Aids
Aggregation's Chances,
According To Mentor
Hopes for a successful cross-coun-
try season were expressed yesterday
by Coach Charles Hoyt. The fact the
Captain Roger Howell's knee injury,
incurred in the outdoor track sea-
son last year, seems to have healed
completely, plus the fact that Howell
is showing better form than ever be-
fore, according to Hoyt, are the
leading reasons for the optimistic
outlook. Howell finished second in'
the Conference run last fall.
In addition to Howell, three more
veterans, Ostrander, Hill, and Mc-
Manus, all of whom finished in the
first forty in last season's meet, are
returning and are certain to show
some improvement over their 1931
form.
Rod Howell, youthful brother of
the team's captain, leads a trio of
promising sophomore candidates.
The other two are Archie McMillan
and Hoyt Servis, who compiled a
very favorable record while running
for Ann Arbor High school. Servis
has been ill lately, however. A heavy
scholastic program is keeping Bos-
worth, another promising man, out1
of action, but it is hoped that he
will join the team later in the season.1
The team is working out daily, but1
the first long 'run, a jaunt of twor
miles, is not scheduled for a week
yet. Coach Hoyt plans to developl
his men for track successes, as he
feels that track is a far more valu-
able sport than is cross-country.
With this end in view he refuses to
burn out his distance men in an
effort to secure the Big Ten crown.
Big Ten Teams
To Open Grid
Season Today
Ohio State Faces Wesley-
an; Northwestern Will
Battle Missouri
CHICAGO, Sept. 30.-(/P)-West-
ern conference football teams which
open their seasons tomorrow rested
today or had light workouts sched-
uled.
Satisfied his men are ready for
Ohio Wesleyan, Coach Sam William-
an of Ohio State sent them to a
country club, while Northwestern,
which engages Missouri, had only a
light work session coming up. Coach
Hanley said neither Pug Rentner,
all-American halfback, nor Dick
Fencl, veteran end, would start and
would not be used unless necessary.
Both are suffering with "charlie-
horses."
Wisconsin, Iowa and Indiana had
finished drills against forward pass-
es, which they expect to be used
against them tomorrow. The Bad-
gers reopen their rivalry with Mar-
quette, Iowa meets Bradley, and the
Hoosiers tackle Ohio University.
Michigan took it easy to save its
strength for Michigan State's ex-
pected powerful opposition, and Il-
linois was prepared for plenty of
trouble from Coe and Miami, its
doubleheader opponents. Minnesota's
starting lineup-against South Dakota
State still was uncertain and Pur-
due's coaches had decided to use
Keegan in Doxie Moore's halfback
position, with John Husar replacing
Dutch Fehring at tackle against
Kansas State. Both Fehring and
Moore are on the injured list.

Chicago has no game tomorrow,
which is fortunate for most of he
regular backfield is temporarily out
of action because of injuries.

FROM THE PRESS BOX

Buddy Meiers, star center in Mich-
igan State's line, whose conversion
to one of the end positions has been
rumored. Meiers' work at the key
post in the line was of such quality
last season as to draw favorable com-
ment from Maynard Morrison, Mich-
igan's All-American center who was
his opponent through the gruelling
0-0 contest of 1931.

We pick:
MICHIGAN OVER MICHIGAN
STATE
Northwestern over Missouri1
Illinoiis over Coe and Miami
Purdue over Kansas State1
Indiana over Ohio University
Ohio State over Ohio 'Wesleyan
Wisconsin over Marquette
Iowa over Bradley Tech
Minnesota over S. Dak. State
Brown over Rhode Island
Colgate over Case
Columbia over Lehigh
Cornell over Niagara
Dartmouth over Vermont
Princeton over Amherst
Army over Furman
Navy over William-Mary
Yale over Bates
Albama over Mississippi State
Georgia Tech over Clemson
S. Methodist over Texas Tech.
Tulane over Texas A. & M.
California over Olympic Club
S. California over Wash. State
Washington over Montana
WE READ in the papers that
Coach Dick Hanley of North-
western has denied a football uni-
form to Meenan because he is mar-
ried. "A married man cannot play
football," is his statement. We won-
der what the ruling would be if the
culprit was Pug Rentner?
AFTER viewing the pre-game
workouts of four teams, we have
come to the conclusion that Central
State Teachers College, coached by
Van Bibber, former All-American
tackle for Purdue, is the likeliest
looking outfit to gain a clear-cut vic-
tory today.
The squad was big, rangy, and full
of pep. They will put up a great bat-

tle this morning on Old Ferry Field
against Coach Courtright's "B" team.
There will be no admission charge at
the gate.
Coach VanBibber is worried about
the sort of offense that the Michigan
men will use. As this is their first
game, he has had no chance to scout
them. However Coach Courtright is
in the same situation. It has every
promise of being a battle royal.
WITH all other things being equal,
a team with a good kicker will
beat a team with an inferior kicker,
so an age-old football maxim goes.
Those close to the team were sure
that with Regeczi, Michigan would
have the superior kicker today. But
Abe Eliowitz had something to say
about that yesterday in the Stadium.
He continually booted the ball more
than 60 yards on the carry, and if
the game does not produce anything
else, a kicking battle is sure to be
waged between the punters.
