LETTERS OF A GANGSTER in
college to his lady-friend in the
Big, Wicked City:
Dear Mabel,
Last Saturday I go to the football
game and watch the Michigans put the
bite on the Ohio States which are
call the Buckeyes. It is a good foot-
ball game and I enjoy it but now
there is some kind of argument about
how many people are there.
People do not argue now about
which is the best, the Michigans or
the Ohio States or whether it ,is a
good game but rather whether 93,-
508 people are there or only 93,507
are there. N
Personally, I nearly forget the
game watching a fight in the crowd
Saturday. You know, Mabel, in a
center of culture & refinement like
this practically every body is strictly
a gentleman. Even the local bulls
are strictly gentlemen which I see by
the way they handle a certain party
in front of me who is more than a
little fried and making a nuisance
y cheering wildly for the Notre
Dames who just happen to be play-
ing somewhere in Pittsburg or Eur-
ope at the time.
W ELL THE POLICE COME to put
clutch on this party who is mak-
ing a great deal of noise & disturb-
ance and naturally this party re-
sents it. Well, instead of laying the
wood on this guy with his hat on
which is indeed disastrous to a hat,
one cop removes his lid and the other
puts the slug on him neatly. Then
the first bull puts the hat on this
party (who has naturally lost in-
terest) so that he does not catch
cold & they drag him out in triumph
about as stiff as a very dead sardine.
At any rate the Michigans win
and now I am in a state of great per-
plexment and bewildity. They have
got some kind of animal over at the
Union this week & I went to see it
but I am coming home to watch the
Michigans play the Chicagos. The
animal is called the Grid-Giraffe
(you know the giraffe, Mabel . . . it
looks like a sight-seer).
Well anyway this Grid Giraffe is
supposed to be on exhibition Sat-
urday afternoon and I will be over
in the Big City and cannot see same.
I understand that it has something to
do with football & cannot discover
what. Maybe it is the pet animal
of the Chicagos like the Wolverine
is the pet animal of the Michigans.
Anyway I want to see it & it costs
only $00.25.
Well I will be seeing you Mabel. I
am thinking of bringing you a pic-
ture of my chemistry professor who
has a stare like a dead mackerel and
is constantly handing me the fishy
optic.
Hoping you are the same,
Mike.
COACH WEST RETURNS

GIANTS LEAD PROS
NEW YORK, Oct. 24.-(A)-The
New York Giants and Portsmouth
Spartans are waging a close fight for

fessional Football league with the
Giants holding a fractional advan-
tage right now.
New York has gained 1,455 yards
in six games so far against 1,451 for
Portsmouth. Boston with 1,405 yards
in six games stands third while
Brooklyn, with 660 in three, ranks
fourth in the averages.

Varsity Is Effective
Kipke Thinks Chicago Is
Underrated; Plans To
Start First Stringers
Driving his squad through a long
hard scrimmage yesterday afternoon,
Coach Harry Kipke made the most of
the first clear weather this week to
whip his men into playing condition
again for the game with Chicago on
Saturday. Kipke is not taking any
chances on these next five games and
stated that he wants none of the men
to feel that Chicago will be a push-
over.
Evidently sensing that C I a r k
Shaughnessy, the Chicago coach, will
see the futility of sending his men
against Michigan's strong line, Kipke
drilled his first team nearly half the
afternoon against a passing attack
put up by the scrubs.
Frosh Run Maroon Plays
The varsity was also given a taste
of the Maroon playing system, with
its "butterfly" shift, as the Frosh
team scrimmaged the first-stringers
on the Ferry Field gridiron. The
yearlings ran through some of the
Chicago plays as Ray Courtright saw
them in their game with Purdue last
Saturday. The varsity stopped all
the running plays advanced by the
Frosh effectively, but pass plays went
through the regulars all too frequent-
ly. Regeczi and the ends, Ward and
Petoskey, looked good on the defense
but the rest of the team appeared
a bit sluggish.
Oliver, Renner Pass Well
Careful attention was given to the
pass plays, lateral, forward, and fake
pass formations, with Renner and
I Oliver doing most of the tossing. Oli-
ver threw some good passes and may
develop into an able substitute for
Renner in emergencies.
It is a significant fact that in the
last three years in which Michigan
has won or tied for the Big Ten title,
the Wolverines have defeated the
Maroons by only small scores. In
1930 it was 13 to 7; in 1931, 16 to 0;
and last year Michigan had to fight
all the way to make it 12 to 0 against
a light team. This year Amos Alonzo
Stagg will not be directing the Mid-
way team, but with backfield mate-
rial such as Capt. Zimmer, Sahlin,
and Berwanger, Shaughnessy's strat-
egy may cause the Wolverines a lot
of trouble.

This Maroon back, Jay Berwanger, may cause the Wolverines plenty
of trouble at Stagg Field Saturday. The triple-threat sophomore is
second only to Michigan's "Flying Dutchman" in Big Ten scoring
honors, having 35 points to his credit.
News Stories From Ann Arbor
Iowa City, Strangely Identical

IOWA CITY, Ia., Oct. 25- (P) -

Hawkeyes still have the steepest
grade to climb to reach the top of
the Western Conference.

the Solem-coached eleven. The
Hawks, sitting on top of the race at
the present with two victories and
no defeats, travel to Minneapolis to.
engage one of the huskiest teams in
the circuit, Minnesota. Iowa's
smooth-functioning offense may have
a difficult time 'orking against the
Gophers.
Iowa's t scoring punch, Johnny
Laws, Russ Fisher and Capt. Dick
Crayne, may solve the secret of the
Gophers' defense.
After Saturday's contest the Hawk-
eyes play a non-conference encoun-
ter with Iowa State. Then comes the
supreme test-Michigan at Ann Ar-
bor. If Iowa can defeat Minnesota
another record crowd may see the

lowing the Wolverine game, the

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Oct. 25-()-

they want to about Michigan winning

ference.

the Kipke-coached eleven. The Wol-
verines, sitting on top of the race at
the present time with one victory

Stan Fay, may solve the secret of
the Maroons' defense.
