LETTERS OF A GANGSTER in1
college to his lady-friend in the
big, Wicked City:
I am filled with tangled emotions,1
which means that I do not know
whether to stand on my head, dance,
or go out and hang the slug on some
semaphore or what. I will tell you
all about it.
Last night I am studying on chem-
istry so that I will make no more
bombs which will blow the members
of our mob into kingdom come like
the one which distributes Nick the
Greek over various parts of the pan-
orama (that is a word which means
scenery Mabel. It's very high-class)
when in comes a gang of lugs who
say they are semaphores and tell me
I am a fresh guy or something like
Well, this mob takes me out of the
house and down to the river and
dumps mee in. I swim and swim, fig-
uring that some other gang in the
city catch wise to the fact that I am
down here learning about chemistry
and decide to bump me off.
So I swim for dear life expecting
at any moment to furnish a nice soft
resting place for a .44 slug when I
finally can get no further and I ex-
pect to sink forever beneath the Hu-
ron river's mighty waves. So I start
to sink & find that I am standing
on bottom! It seems that it is al-
ways a joke a lot of fun for mem-
bers of the 2 lower classes here to
treat each other like that.
It is very lucky indeed for these
guys that I do not have my gat
along or some of them by this time
will be playing harps along with Nick
the Greek, and I imagine that Nik
is a very bad harp player just a-
ful to listen to.
That is one of my tangled emo-
tions and is why I feel like putting
the sock on some Semaphore, which
is the other class name.

THE OTHER EMOTIONS all con-
nect up with, this football racket.
The Ohio States are coming down
this week-end and Ihear they are so
rough & tough that they add up
their score with a machine. The
nickname of the Ohio States is the
Blackeyes or something like that.
Well the Blackeyes and the Michi-
gans are not very good friends ever
since the Michigans go down to dedi-
cate the Blackeyes new stadium
which is where they play football,
and, iby a large. score..
I may as well explain Mabel that
As a result of a meeting held Mon-
day evening involving the managers
of the independent intra-mural
teams, a plan is underway whereby
the groups will bp established on a
permanent basis and will operate un-
der the same name from year to year
with the members that graduate be-
ing replaced by new men.
. It is hoped that by so organizing,
the interest of the team members will
be sustained and rivalries built up
that will lead to keener competition.
A meeting will be held Friday at 4
o'clock in the big Intra-Mural gym;
all independents are urged to attend
because at this time further plans
will be made for the organization of
beating the team whose stadium you
are dedicating is considered very bad
manners like bumping a guy off
without telling him you are going to
bump him off beforehand. Natur-
ally the Ohio States resent this more
So they come up here and put
the bite on the Michigans something
fierce two years ago, and that is the
last game up to now which the Mich-
Then the Michigans go down to
Columbus (the gem of the ocean)
last year and beat the Blackeyes
pretty bad. But now they are rough
& tough again, and are all ready to
put the slug on the Michigans and I
fear that they have a good chance
to do same. They too are singing
"Who's Afraid of the Big, Bad Wol-
verines" all the time & dreaming
of putting the bite on us down here
very bad indeed.
In fact, I understand that they
plan on taking a few of the bldgs.
here back with them as a souvenir
if they win. Just between you and
I Mabel I hope they take the Chem-
istry bldg. with them if they do and
also my prof with it because I do not
like that guy worse and worse all the
time. It might also be a good way
of getting rid of Newberry Auditori-
um which they have been trying to
figure what to do with for years.
Give my regards to the Boss & tell
him that I am picking up a lot of
culture & refinement.
I hear that Mike's first letter of
two weeks ago has started something.
The Maize and Blue are being called
the "Big, Bad Wolverines" all over
the nation now, and the Ohio State
band is actually rumored to be prac-
ticing the song, "Who's Afraid of
the Big, Bad Wolf," to be rendered
in the Stadium Saturday.
I might recommend that the Fight-
ing Hundred start learning "Night
And Day, You Are the One" as an
Band To Honor Farrell
In Formations At Game
The Varsity Band Saturday will
do its part toward honoring the
memory of Stephen "Steve" Far-
rell, veteran 'trainer who for 17
years looked after the welfare of
Funeral services are to be held

dead Tuesday on the University

ble music, it was announced late
yesterday by Lieut. R. R. Cour-

Team Will Practice In The
Stadium Here Friday;
Ohio State's band of determined
gridders ran through their last prac-
tice on the home field yesterday
afternoon, continuing their policy of
drilling behind closed doors. Even
newspapermen, who had previously
enjoyed the confidence of Coach Sam
Willaman, were barred from the field
where Willaman worked oh special
plays and defense for the Michigan
The Buckeyes will leave Columbus
late today for Dearborn where their
Michigan headquarters are located.
They will go through a short drill in
Michigan's Stadium Friday afternoon
and then return to Dearborn until
shortly before game time Saturday.
Willaman Fears Running
Coach Willaman, in discussing
Ohio's chances against the Wolver-
ines, was not too optimistic.
"We couldn't beat them last year
when they had no running attack,
and now-they have one and one that
clicks, too. That makes them just
twice as dangerous.
"Reports about Michigan lacking a
forward pass attack are so much
bunk," he said.
"Kipke hasn't anyone fooled about
not having a passer this year. It
would look kind of foolish for a team
that has been winning so many games
in the air to abandon that style for
a running attack. It isn't so much
the running attack that has me wor-
ried, it's those passes."
,State's Booting Inferior
Have we a punter who can match
Regeczi?" he asked. "Rush him?
Who's going, to rush through that
Michigan line? It's every bit as good
Jack Blott, Wolverine coach who
has been scouting the Buckeyes, had
a different story to tell, however.
"Ohio is the best looking football
team I've seen for these many years,"
Jack said. "You can mark it down
that it's the roughest going gang of
Buckeyes that ever came up this way
from Ohio insofar as my memory
serves. I fear we're due for a licking."
Ohio State drilled behind locked
doors and reported to have not looked
so good. . . . In the dark regarding
Chicago's offense. Purdue coaches
are concentrating on the Boilermaker
offense.. . . Ed Angleyer was shifted
to guard and Vercuski to tackle at
Indiana. . . . Chicago plans to
spring a new offense on Purdue.

Speculations Fly Concern-
ing Kipke's Moves To
Keep Ohio Guessing
Behind locked doors, Michig'an's'
football squad and Coach Kipke held
a mysteriously secret practice yester-
day afternoon. For the first time in
four years everyone was barred from
the practice session, including news-
It is supposed that Kipke gave his
team some new plays, both on attack
and defense that he would not trust
to the most loyal Wolverine support-
ers. Coach Sam Willaman of 9hio
State said Wednesday that Kipke
couldn't fool people into believing
that Michigan would give up its here-
tofore successful passing plays for a
concentrated ground attack. So it
appears that Willaman will drill his
squad on aerial defense against Mich-
igan before he worries about ground
No Scrimmage This Week
Nothing could be learned about the
practice yesterday but the dopesters
have it figured that the Coach work-
ed the squad on running through'
plays, dummy scrimmage, and block-
ing. Kipke is not putting the team
through scrimmage this week as he
will not risk injuries before his most
important game of the season.
A capacity crowd for the stadium
is anticipated Saturday as it was
learned yesterday unofficially that
the extra bleacher seats will be erec-
ed for the game. Both ticket offices
in Detroit, at the Book-Cadillac and
the Wabash station, ran out of tick-
ets early yesterday morning and ap-
plied for 2,000 more. The reserved
seats are now selling in the last sec-
tion next to the general admission
seats, which has not happened this
early in the week in several seasons.
Army And Illini
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Oct. 18.-Back
in its oldtime place in the sun of
the, football world, by virtue of its
smashing victory over a powerful
Wisconsin team, Illinois girds itself
for the move to Cleveland for its
big intersectional battle withthe
hard-hitting and fast-running Army
No false confidence prevails in the
Ililnois camp, which pictures the
game as a close one between two
teams which appear to be evenly-
matched in ability and experience.
The Illinois squad which will face
Army in Cleveland's immense sta-
dium will be practically the same that
halted the powerful attack of Wiscon-
sin and thrice crossed the Badger
They Stopped Cagle
Memories of previous close and
exciting struggles with the Cadets
inspire interest in this intersectional
battle. It was'in 1929 that "Red"
Cagle led one of the greatest Army
teams in history to the Illinois sta-
dium where the Illini triumphed, 17
to 7, in a spectacular game before a
packed stadium of 70,000 spectators.
Army retaliated in the Yankee sta-
dium in New York before another
huge crowd in 1930, winning 13-0.
The Army-Illinois series, which will
be concluded in the Illinois stadium
next year, will mark the last meet-
ing of West Point and Big Ten teams
unless the Big Ten faculty board re-
verses its decision that western con-
ference teams may not play Army.
