Zupke Again Smilesr
Michigan Sub Situation
THE main controversy over the
game in the Chicago Stadium to-
morrow seems to be not who will win
but rather whether Kipke will use
the twelfth or thirteenth team
against the Maroons. That's a bad
attitude to take going into a game
and you can bet your life that all
this confidence being indulged in by
the demon scribes of the sports sheets
is a luxury not being indulged in by
members of the Michigan squad.
I am not trying to give anybody
the idea that the Wolverines are
shaking in their cleated boots be-
cause it would take a sports expert
with real courage to predict Chica-
go. I don't qualify on the courage
and my better judgment tells me that
Michigan will win hands down, but
don't forget last year when Michi-
gan scored once on Newman's 77-
yard run and then failed to tally
again until the final minutes ofthe
Chicago was considered a set-up
at that time for the Wolverines, and
if you had gone down to Coach Kipke
sometime during the game and in-
quired, however politely, when the
subs were going to be sent in, you
would probably have found yourself
torn limb from limb in very, very
short order.
So maybe the youngsters won't get
their chance after all. Don't forget
that beating Michigan is the very
nadir of every Big Ten mentor's am-
bition this year. Personally, I can
practically tell you right now that
this green sub eleven will not start
the game.

THE thing that worries me about
this contest is that "Smilin' Bob"
Zupke, after experiencing several
years of glumness, will be grinningly
scouting Michigan while his Illini
boys are taking a two-week rest and
just laying for the Wolverines for all
they are worth. And they tell me
that when Zuppke scouts them, they
are really scouted!
Zuppke and his men have come
out from under their cloud this year,
holding the strong Army eleven to
a 6-0 standstill last Saturday and
trouncing a confident Wisconsin
team the week before. Then, too,,
the Illinois. coach has scheduled
Southern California in '35 and '36,
if I remember the facts of the case
correctly. And he has also taken to
attending Coaches' conventions late-
ly, which are two things which
"Smilin' Bob" does not do when he
has a really poor outfit.

Grid Graph To
Cover Chicago
Game Saturday
Mike The Lug's 'Giraffe'
Will Perform In Union
Ballroom At 3:00 P.M.
As Al Newman's gangster friend
says, "This Grid Giraffe is going to
be on exhibition Saturday afternoon."
The occasion-The Michigan-Chi-
cago football game at Stagg Field.
The place-the Michigan Union ball-
room. The time--3:00 p. m. Ann
Arbor time (2:00 p. m. Chicago time.)
The price - two bits. The beneficiary
- the University of Michigan Alumni
If Mike the Lug had been imbibing
higher education here at Michigan
some seven or eight years ago he
might know what a Grid Giraffe is,
for back in the good old days of col-
legiate fiivvers and prohibition it
used to be the thing to do of a cold
Saturday afternoon when Yost's
bone-crushers were playing away to
pack the girl friend in the family
cutter and cut over to Hill Auditori-
um to watch the Grid Giraffe in ac-
The Grid animal that disported it-
self on the stage of the Hill Auditori-
umin those days was nothing like the
more modern, stream-lined edition
which will cavort about the Union
Ballroom tomorrow. Mr. Larry Peck
has seen to that. It seems that Mr.
Peck gave birth to the Giraffe several
years ago. It immediately became
popular in many colleges throughout
the country. Then came the radio
and the fellows decided that they
would rather recline before a radio
in some nice, warm sorority during
the game, than watch the grid graph.
Last year Mr. Peck staged a come-
back, producing an animal that has
things no radio could ever have. Now
the Alumni Association has pur-
chased one of the beasts - one of
the very newest type and will present
it to the general public, citizens and
students, male and female, for the
first time tomorrow.
But, putting the Bee aside, as Mike
the Lug might say in his more lucid
moments, the grid graph in its new
and improved form is the next best
thing to having a seat on the 50
yard line in Chicago tomorrow. The
graph, by means of lights on a real-
istic green background with white
stripes, gives a visual picture of the
game that a radio cannot give. The
proceeds will go to the Alumni As-
sociation, which has promised to turn
over half of the profits, after the
board is paid for, to the Student
Good Will Fund. The Union and The
Daily are co-operating in producing
the attraction for the Alumni Asso-

Franklin C. Capon, Coach
Frosh Runners
Will Engage In
Treasure Hunt
The freshman cross country squad
is going romantic this afternoon. No,
the harriers are not going to float
over the ground, or skip, or do aes-
thetic sorts of things on the green
swards in and about the University
stadium and golf course. It .is not
that type of romanticism. It is a
Robert Louis Stevenson kind of ro-
mance. The freshman cross coun-
tryites are going to hold a treasure
According to Ken Doherty, his boys
are all "agog" over the prospect and
he expects his entire squad, for the
first time this year, to turn out for
the novel practice session. No one,
of course, knows what the treasure
will be, except Doherty.
Run Is 21 Miles
The frosh will run the usual two
and a half mile grind over the same
old course. There will be no red topes,
no Indian signs to indicate the way,
but there will be explanatory notes
at convenient places along the way.
If the freshman time trials of
Wednesday are at all significant, it
looks like a fellow by the name of
Hutchinson has the treasure "in the
bag." He finished first over the two
and a half mile stretch in the good
time of 12:47. The only man near
him was Stone who was clocked at
13:01. Other harriers who are given
an outside chance, in case the mes-
sages are in code, are Brelsford, War-
dell, O'Connell, Ladd, Aikens, Mair,.
and Patton.

Oosterbaan, Weber, Blott
Will Scout For Future
Games This Year
Thirty-three players were named
yesterday by Coach Harry Kipke to
comprise the Wolverine squad that
will be in uniform at Chicago tomor-
row afternoon when the Maize and
Blue meet Clark Shaughnessy's eleven
at Stagg Field.
The squad will leave at 8:45 this
morning from the Michigan Central
depot and will arrive in Chicago in
time to hold a short practice session
at the field this afternoon.
Coaches Oosterbaan, Weber and
Blott will not be with the team at
Chicago Saturday as they will be oc-
cupied in scouting three of Mich-
igan's future oppo-
nents. Oosterbaan
and Blott will be~
it Minneapolis get-
Ling a line.on Min-
nesota and Iowa,'
while Weber will >
be scouting North-
western at Colum-
bus in their game
with the Buckeyes.
The starting
lineup that will
face the MidWay
eleven will probably be the same that
took the field against Ohio State last
Saturday with the possible excep-
tions of Ted Petoskey and Jack Hes-
ton. Both of the Wolverine stars suf-
fered severe rib injuries in the Buck-
eye contest and Kipke may keep
them out of the Chicago game in
order to prevent any further aggra-
vation of their injuries. However,
they may be recovered sufficiently
tomorrow to see service during the
In the final practice session at
Ferry Field yesterday, Kipke sent his
charges through a stiff offensive drill
against a picked group of freshmen.
The yellow-shirted yearlings were
coached by Ray Courtright, who
scouted the Maroons in their game
with Purdue last Saturday.
The new plays which Kipke gave
to the squad this week were given
a thorough testing before the Wol-
verine mentor ex-
t.:pressed himself as
satisfied with the
showing of the
Varsity. Both run-
ning and passing
plays were directed
at the freshmen
eleven during the
extensive drill.
Renner, Regeczi
and Oliver were on
the throwing end
of most of the aer-
ial heaves with Renner's throws find-
ing a receiver with regularity.
The various plays used to block
punts were also given a final check-
ing by the coaching staff. The work
of Chuck Bernard in breaking
through the line to block the kicks
was up to his usual high standard
of play.
The lack of a good place-kicker is
still a problem which received con-
siderable attention in the early part

of practice. Everhardus, Oliver, Pe-
toskey, and Savage booted countless
balls over the cross bar under the
watchful eyes of Fielding Yost.




EAST LANSING, Mich., Oct. 26.-
(RP)-Mother and father can both go
to Saturday's football game between
Michigan State College and Syracuse
University, even if little Johnnie is
too young.
The home economics department
of the college is providing a '"check

the day of the game for the benefit
of parents who don't care to expose
their babies to several hours in the
variable fall weather.
