The Cornells Are Coing .. .
* * *
LETTERS of a gangster in college to his lady-friend in the Big, Wicked
Dear Mabel:
- Well how is everything in the old town Mabel. Ever since the Boss sends
me down here to take a course in chemistry so that I can make better pine-
apples which do not blow up like the one which blows Nick the Greek into
the next world, I am wondering about this game of football.
Remember the' lettei I write to you last week? That is before I see a,
football game and I must confess that at the time my notions are some-
what hazy. But last Saturday, the Michigans beat the Michigan States
twenty to six and I am there getting rained on with the rest of the cash
customers, but I find out what this game is all about.
No kidding, Mabel, if a guy ever tries some of the things on the street
which they allow in a football game, the riot squad is down on him in very
short order, indeed. As near as I can find out, practically everything goes.'
It is just about the best fight I ever see. One gent has the ball and the rest
of them try to get it away from him by every kind of rough stuff I can
imagine. Several guys are laid out last Saturday, and I am beginning to
think I like this game.
1''HEN one of the Michigans takes the ball over the line which is the
scoring line I suddenly find myself on my ft. hollering and pounding
the hat of the guy which happens to be in front of me. And the funny
part of it is that the guy does not make any mention of it to me whatever.
I guess I am just a real college boy now, Mabel.
And when the Michigan States score a touchdown near the end of the
game I am so sore at a Michigan State guy next to me for hollering &
yelling that I step up and put the slug on him. Of course, he resents
this more than somewhat, and I am reluctantly obliged to lay him out.
When they carry him out, I find that he has fallen into the lap of my
chemistry professor, whom I gather does not like this sort of thing at all.
He is very narrow-minded, Mabel and I am afraid that I will have to
bump him off some time.
This wk. the Cornells are to come here to play the Michigans, and of
course I am for the Michigans. From what I hear, the Cornells are from
some place in New York City, and they are what they call "ancient tradi-
tional rivals" of the Mchigans which means that they have not had a
chance at each other for a long time and are very anxious indeed to put the
slug on each other.
IN FACT I understand that the Cornells first play the Michigans about the
time when George Washington is considering about crossing the Dela-
ware, which is a very long time ago, Mabel. (You remember George,
Mabel. He is the guy who puts the slug on Napoleon.) Anyhow, the Mich-
igans are beaten very badly and out of fifteen games since, the Michigans
win only four. That is why I want the Michigans to win this wk.
I want the Michigans to win very badly, so please ask the Boss if he
cannot send down two or three machine-gun men to sit in a box and help
the Michigans in case the Cornells get out of hand. Tell him to come down
himself if he wants to see a swell riot. Well Mabel I must get over to class.
I waste a lot of time last week watching a Candy Machine over on State St.
It sort of hypnotizes me if you get what I mean.

Cornell Passing
Attack Is Object
Of Grid Drill
Fay Returned To Quarter
Position As Kipke Still
Ponders Over Backs
That Cornell will present a varied
attack against Michigan Saturday in
the renewal of grid relations between
the two schools was evident yester-
day as Coach Kipke sent his entire
squad through an intensive defensive
drill in an effort to find a method
of 'stopping Gil Dobie's machine.
For more than an hour, the re-
serves thrust Cornell plays at the,
Michigan varsity in a strictly defen-
sive drill. Before the end of the
session, the freshman squad that had
been coached in Cornell's attack by
Benny Oosterbaan, were sent in
against the reserves to give the sec-
ond stringers a chance to see what
they could do in breaking up the

Minnesota Will
Meet Purdue In
Conference Tilt
Teams In First Meeting
Since Gophers' Triumph
In 1928 Game
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Oct. 11.-The
past history of Purdue-Minnesota
football tussles coupled with the re-
sults of last Saturday's games, are
providing food for sober thought for
Boilermaker supporters as Purdue
prepares for its Big Ten opener with
the Gophers at Minneapolis.
In 1928, Minnesota trounced the
Boilermakers, 15 to 0, one of the
soundest trimmings Purdue has re-
ceived in years, and last season, when
the series was renewed, the Boiler-
makers were hard pressed to score a
7 to 0. victory.
Minnesota, reported 50 per cent
stronger than last season, displayed
a most impressive defense and a
powerful offense, although tied by
Indiana Saturday, while the Boiler-
makers were anything but impressive,
as they barely nosed out Ohio Uni-
versity, 13 to 6.
When Purdue takes the field
against Minnesota Saturday, it will be
revisiting the scene of its last white-
wash. Since Purdue was trimmed by
the Gophers, 15 to 0, in 1928, the
Boilermakers have scored one or more
touchdowns in 41 straight games.
Duane Purvis, Boilermaker half-
back, believes in doing things in a
big way. Last fall, Purvis tossed the
longest completed forward pass of the
1933 season, a 55 yard heave to Paul
Moss against Chicago. Last spring, he
broke the Big Ten javelin throw rec-
ord and won the national collegiate
javelin throwing championship.

Aerial Attack Foreboding
Cornell's aerial attack, as displayed
by the reserves, will give the Wolver-
ines a lot of trouble at the Stadium
Saturday. Using both a tandem and
double-wing-back offense, Cornell
either passes or shoots Dobie's famed
power plays at the tackles. And:with
such passers as Ferrero and Switzer
on the throwing end, the Wolverines
will be in for an interesting;after-
Capt. Fay, Heston. Everhardus, and
Regeczi were in the defensive back-
field most of the drill, although Tess-
mer, Westover and Oliver all broke
into the lineup before Kipke sent his
potential starting lineup through a
session in plays.
Petoskey Outstanding
Kipke constantly shifted the line,
with nearly all of the linemen being
used on the defense. Ted Petoskey
looked the best of the linemen as he
repeatedly knifed through the of-
fensive line to hurry the passer and
prevent him from getting the ball
away. Renner was at the throwing
end of most of the heaves, and he
looked good.
Nearly all of the aspirants for
tackle berths were used on the de-
fense by the Wol-
verine mentors as :
it is expected that
Cornell's p o w e r
plays, which are
directed mainly at ?
the opposing tack
les, will test the
Wolverine tacklers
to the u t m o s t.
vVistert is favoring
a bad shoulder but
is expected to see JsT#7 T
action against the Big Reds.
Capt. Fay will probably start at
quarterback againstCornell as he
did against State last Saturday. The
eleven that Kipke gave his personal
attention to in offensive drill at the
end of the practice had Fay at quar-
ter, Everhardus and Heston at the
halfs, Regeczi at full, Petoskey and
Ward at the flanks, Wistert and Aus-
tin, tackles, Savage and Borgmann,
guards, and Chuck Bernard over the

According to Dr. George May
head of the Physical Educ' , De-
partment, some 700 fres' .en are ac-
tively engaged in one phase or an-
other of the fall sports program. Of
this number 500 are enrolled in the
regular gym classes. The remainder
are attached to various freshmanl
athletic squads including: football,
wrestling, swimming, and boxing.-
The feature of the program as far
as the gym groups are concerned ist
to give the first year men an in-
sight into the rudiments of different
sport endeavors. During the course
of the year training in tumbling and
apparatus work together with fun-
damentals of track, wrestling and
boxing will be stressed. To serve as
a competitive stimulus basketball
teams will be organized and regular
tournaments played.
"We feel," said Dr. May, "that each
Michigan man should know and ap-
preciate the merits of physical con-
dition and development and our en-
tire plan revolves around the fulfill-
ment of this aim."
Fraternity Speedball
Tourney In Full Swing
The Interfraternity Speedball tour-
nament will go into full swing to-
day with ten fraternity teams seeing
action at the Intramural building.
At 4:15 p. m., there will be three
games. Phi Kappa Sigma will run
into Alpha pDlta Phi, Pi Lambda Phi
will meet Phi Kappa Psi, and T. K. E.
will take on Alpha Tau Omega.
At 5:15 p. m., the two games willk
be Alpha Omega vs. Psi Upsilon andl
Phi Lambda Kappa vs. Sigma Chi.
The Intramural department is this
year conducting boxing classes. All
men interested in joining a boxing
class should see Coach John John-
stone about it soon.

plays a freshman picked squad has
been working out regularly under the
tutelage of Bennie Oosterbaan who
scouted Cornell's game last Satur-
day. Every afternoon this week the
Varsity will engage this set of frosh
in a dummy scrimmage. Mass plays
around the end, sharp slices off
tackle, and a snappy air attack are
the tenets of Gil Dobie's bible. This
system is being° rapidlymastered by
the freshmen and the regulars will
have their work cut out for them.
