* * *
Town and gown were joined 'today
in plans for rallies on the Ohio State
University campus and at Union sta-
tion. The squad will entrain at 11:20
p. m. (EST) arrive at Dearborn,
Mich., about 3 a. m. Friday, hold a
light-practice Friday afternoon, and
then proceed to Ann Arbor for their
tilt with Michigan.
The players themselves were ready
for the fray which may decide the
Big Ten championship.
Only one, Don Wilson, a veteran
end, was out with a sprained ankle.
Coach Sam Willaman said he would
not name his starting lineup until
Saturday morning, but in a surprise
scrimmage yesterday he had the fol-
lowing: Gillman and Padlow, ends;
Rosequist and Conrad, tackles; Gail-
us and Monahan, guards; Vuchinich,
center; Cramer, quarterback; Wet-
zel, fullback; Smith, right halfback;
and Heekin and Fisch alternating.
at left halfback.
Although Willaman had said prev-
iously his wards would not scrim-
mage before the Michigan contest,
the coach was dssatisfied with the
course of yesterday's drill. So. out
trooped the frosh squad again,
clothed in models of the Wolverines'
uniforms, and even wearing the
numbers of Kipke's lads.
Tackling was cut out, however.
During the practice, Delich substi-
tuted for Monahan and Yaroz for
THE FOLLOWING is the consensus

To date, the consensus is .888 cor-
rect, but tomorrow afternoon will
probably tell another tale. This foot-
ball week-end is likely to cause many
headaches among the local seers, as
well as those of national repute.
Headed by the Michigan-Ohio State
contest, there are many battles which
are best left alone as far as any
predicting is concerned.
UT THIS WEEK, I AM ON THE
SPOT. I feel forced to come out
with a prediction on this Saturday's
classic for which they are even now
erecting the temporary bleachers out
in the stadium. So I will don my
turban and other paraphernalia,
mutter a few oriental prayers and
do my best to qualify as an amateur'
Peering into my crystal ball, the
whole situation immediately clears to
the consistency of black mud. With
a tear in these kindly eyes, I thank
the staff for their unanimity in back-,
ing the Wolverines.
I predict Michigan to win, and I
have been trying to analyze my mo-
tives in doing so for the past week.
Maybe I am after all the sort of fel-
low who goes around buying Empire
State Buildings, Brooklyn Bridges,
and such knick-knacks, but I still
have confidence in Mr. Kipke as an
exceedingly smart grid coach. And
last year if you saw the game, you
will remember that Mr. Willaman,
head of the Buckeye Beef & Brain
Trust, sent a, team into the game
against the greatest passer in foot-
ball almost totally lacking in aerial
Now Mr. Kipke is not in the habit
of sending his, team into the game
with their moleskin panties at half-
mast. A Kipke team is a well-pre-
pared team, pointed for the defectsl
in an opponent's play and alsol
strengthened against the opposition's
So I bank on Kipke. And I also
bank on a very useful portion of
John Regeezi's anatomy . . .the , bigi
toe of his right foot, which is Mich-K
igan's gilt-edge gridiron insurance.
In fact, Michigan's Achilles-heel is
that same big toe, and if it were
amputated between now and game-
time I might reverse this prediction.
Wistert Has Slight Cold;
Weather Hampers Work
In Last Pre-Season Drill
Old Man Weather nearly upset the
dope for Saturday's game when it
was learned yesterday that "Whitey"
Wistert had developed a serious cold
and might not be available for serv-
ice against the Buckeyes. Later,
however, Whitey himself said that it
was not a bad attack and that, al-
though confined to his fraternity
house for the day, he would probably
be all right by Saturday.
Coach Kipke held another ultra-
secret practice for his squad yester-
day, of which very little is known.
"Kip," it is rumored, put his punters
through a long session in the stadi-
um while the assistant coaches drilled
the linemen on South Ferry Field.
A chilling wind and rain marked the
practice and fear of illness for squad
members was evinced by the coaches.
But the weather man predicts fair
and cool for Saturday and such a
condition would give Michigan's
passing attack a decided edge.
New Attack Probable
Little or no information was forth-
coming from the two secret drills
the squad held Wednesday and yes-
terday, but it is generally believed
that the team was given a new at-
tack to be used against Ohio. The
fact that Kipke is stressing punting
seems to indicate that he hopes to
use John Regeczi's educated toe to
advantage if his plan of attack does
Western State Normal of Kalama-
zoo will inaugurate the varsity cross

ning at 10 o'clock.
Little is known of the strength of
the Kalamazoo harriers but they are
expected to give the Wolverines a

Each team will be comprised of
seven men. The first five runners of
each team to cross the finish line at

team total. In case the sixth Michi-

fifth Western State runner, one more
point would be added to the Kala-
