Michigan Begins
Preparation For
Illinois Contest,


Returns To Lineup

The Game ...
The Victors...
WRITERS have shifted definitely
from Purdue at last and are singing
the praises of the Wolverines in no
uncertain terms. And even at that,
they didn't see Michigan at the peak.
There was something of a let down
after the O. S. U. game last week,
and it could easily be sensed
throughout the contest. Even at that,
Michigan was easily the best team
the Windy City scribes had seen, and
I venture to predict, will see, this
year of grace.
Chicago had a pretty good offense.
There was no denying that. Several
times they shook runners loose into
the Maize and Blue secondary, which
is a rare sight this season. What's
more they got off some successful
end runs as Petoskey's bruises ap-
parently slowed him up somewhat.
Michigan smashed away at the
tackles throughout most of the con-
test, with varying success. During the
first quarter; the blocking was splen-
did; then a lot of bad breaks and
the wear and tear of the game
started to take it out of the Wolver-
ines and the offense didn't look so
In fact, Chicago put up a pretty
good fight during the third and the
fourth quarters as Michigan waves
surged up to the ten and fifteen yard
lines only to lose the ball on downs,
sometimes by inches and fractions of
Chicago was certainly well-schooled
against the lateral-pass play around
end, with Fay shooting the ball to
Everahrdus. That play gained almost
at will against Cornell, but Chicago
held it to a negative yardage. There
was always a Maroon player camp-
ing right there in front of Everhard-
us ready to spill him.

Victors" was featured in Chica-
go last week end. The first thing
I heard on Saturday morning was
Michigan's "Fighting Hundred" play-
ing it out in front of the Hotel Win-
dermere. Incidentally, the band was
Then, on the way over to the game,
the echoes of Michigan's fight song
reverberated among the buildings of
Chicago's Midway region as the band
went over to the game. And of
course, the Michigan band roared the
grand old song as they took the field
before the contest.
There was a big surprise as Chica-
go's musical organization character-
istically attired in Maroon sweaters
and flannels half-marched, half-ran
up the gridiron frenziedly playing
"The Victors" again.
And then, of course, the song was
again in order at the half with a
great Michigan team leading 14-0 ...
and the band again played it leaving
the field with a 28-0 victory hung up
for the Wolverines.
I stayed in the Pressbox for about
45 minutes after the final gun. Leav-
ing the field, I heard the solemn
chimes of the stately University of
Chicago Carrillon giving a sedate
rendition of "The Victors."
Michigan harriers have two meets
remaining on their list before the
season is ended. Next Saturday they
run against Ypsilanti over on the
Normal course, and the following
week Ypsi comes here.


Is Expected To

Wistert Hurts Eye
Ideal Practicing Weather
Greets Squad For This
Week's First Workout
Preparation for the Illinois en-
counter commenced last night on
Ferry Field, with Michigan's poten-
tial "Champions of the West" run-
ning through a long drill on pass
For the first time in weeks the
Varsity squad was greeted with ideal
practice weather. A little too warm,
if anything, it induced a most spir-
ited drill. Optimism prevailed in the
Wolverine camp, contrasting greatly
with last week's apparent lethargic
attitude. After a week's let down,
the squad is apparently on the up
The team got through the Chicago
game rather luckily in respect to in-
juries. Whitey Wistert with a cut
over his eye and a sprained ankle,
and Bill Borgmann with an injured
arm, were the only near-casualties.
To counteract the absence of Wis-
tert and Borgmann from active prac-
tice, Jack Heston and Ted Petoskey,
on the injured list last week, were
back in the line-up yesterday.
Kipke Dissatisfied
Before practice, Coach Kipke ex-
pressed dissatisfaction with the
team's performance against the Ma-
roons. "They were good in spots,"
he said, "but terrible at other times.
It was just laziness, that's all." The
answer is that they reached a peak
against Ohio State, and a let-down
was only natural against Chicago.
Coach Wally Weber is in the spot-
light this week, having scouted all
the Illinois games this season. While
he drilled the frosh on Illinois plays.
Coach Oosterbaan conducted the re-
serve attack against the Varsity.
Bill Renner, in imitation Jack Bey-
non, Illinois' star passer, aimed a
barrage of passes at the first team
with some success.
The waterboy was the most popu-
lar member of the staff yesterday
due to the weather, but Kipke laid
down the ultimatum that "no pass
interceptions, no water." The reserve
attackimmediately ran up against
Louie Westover was at quarter the
most of the afternoon, Heston and
Everhardus at the halves and Regec-
zi at full. The line consisted of Pe-
toskey, Hildebrand, Savage, Bernard,
Kowalik, Austin and Ward. -
Everhardus Leads
Big Ten Scorers
CHICAGO, Oct. 30.-(P)-Booting
two extra points and scoring one
touchdown against Chicago, Herman
Everhardus, the fleet Michigan half-
back, today continued to lead the Big
Ten individual scorers with a. total
of 49 points.
Although he or his team has failed
to score in the last two games, Jay
Berwanger, of Chicago, holds second
place with 35 points. Johnny Laws,
of Iowa, didn't score against Minne-
sota, but he holds third place with
24 points. Wetzel, of Ohio State, is in
fourth place and four are tied for
fifth with 18.

Michigan's slashing halfback, who
has been on the bench with a side
injury, is back in uniform and ex-
pected to start Saturday against Il-
Cagers Report
To Cappon For
First Workout
Fourteen men, including three let-
ter-men and two reserve award win-
ners responded last night to Coach
Franklin C. Cappon's first call for
varsity basketball material for the
1933-34 team. The squad will con-
tinue to work out in the Intramural
Gym four nights a week until after
football season.
Cappon is pessimistic about the
prospects for the early season games,
since but one of the fourteen men
who reported last night was a guard
and consequently cannot see any
chance of working extensively on any
style of offense or defense until after
the football season. Thirteen men
who are at present out for football,
eight of whom are guards, will re-
port then.
Opening Date Too Early
The Wolverines open the season
this year at Kalamazoo on December
4, a week after the gridders end their
season, meeting the strong Western
State Teachers quintet. Cappon has
fears that his squad cannot possibly
be in shape for that game, or for the
Eastern jaunt of four games in five
days coming twelve days later.
Jack Teitelbaum and Al Plummer,
forwards, and Fred Allen, a center,
were the lone letter-men who re-
ported last night. Manny Fishman,
the Detroit Northern star a few years
ago and Don Black were the other
veterans who were in uniform.
Sophomore stars, including George
Ford, John Jablonski, Howard Le
Vine and Phil McCallum, the lone
guard on the roster, complete the
Cappon announced today that any
and all who would like to make a bid
for a varsity berth are urged to re-
-)ort at 7:30 Monday, Tuesday Wed-
nesday, or Thursday night in the In-
tramural Gym with their own equip-

Fisher Finds Grid
Yearlings Weak In
Coach Ray Fisher talked yesterday
about freshman football players in
general. He said that most of them
were pretty much undeveloped.
"The average high school football
player that comes to Michigan is
usually quite far below the college
standard of efficiency in the funda-
mentals of the game," he said. "He
can't block. He can't tackle. And
he hasn't developed the sense of
smooth group movement."
"This lack of skill in the funda-
mentals is easily explained. In the
first place, the high school game,
naturally, is not maintained at the
same speed and plane of skill, and
the players are not drilled as much
on -fundamentals.
Freshmen Younger
"In the second place, and this is
the most interesting point, the run
of high school players are at the
age when they are just getting their
growth. They are awkward and are
unable to get a good grounding in
the fundamentals. Incidentally I
have noticed that the average age of
freshmen coming in, in all sports,
is getting younger and younger.
Charlie Hoyt recently took the ages
of his Varsity cross country men and
found that they were about the same
as the boys he handled as high school
coach several years ago.
"But going back to the second
point. I think that Whitey Wistert
was the most extreme example of
this. He grew too fast and too much
for the length of time given him.
He was a big awkward kid as a fresh-
man, but now you wouldn't know he
was the same boy. He has gone
through the Michigan process of
football maturation.
Carver Defeats Forsythe
In Faculty Tournament
H. C. Carver won the Faculty Han-
dicap Golf Tournament yesterday
when he defeated W. E. Forsythe,
five up and four to play. Carver was
the winner of last year's tournament.
In the semi-finals played during the
latter part of last week, Forsythe had
defeated Mitchell one up, and Carver
had beaten Craig, two and one. There
were sixteen competitors.
Tomorrow afternoon at 4:15, the
speedball league will continue with
games between Phi Kappa Sigma and
Phi Kappa Psi, and Alpha Delta Phi
and Pi Lambda Phi. At 5:15 Alpha
Omega will play Beta Zeta Pi, and
Psi Upsilon will meet Phi Lambda
Intra-fraternity volleyball will be-
gin next week.

Strong Illinois
Grid Team To
Face Michian
Heston, Petoskey Return
To Line-Up After Being
On Injured List
Two weeks of rest will find the
Illinois football team ready for its
hardest game of the year this week-
end with Michigan.
Although the Illini lost their last
game against Army, they still have
to lose a conference game and are
tied for first place with Michigan in
tlie Big Ten standings.
Illinois will present as heavy a line
as Michigan for the contest but not
as experienced. However, so far this
year, it has shown extraordinary
promise and ability for an inexperi-
enced line.
Coach Zuppke will use a double
wing back formation similar to that
used by Ohio State against Michigan,
the only difference being that it is
not as close and as compact.
Beynon Smart Passer
This type of offense will be suita-
bly fitted for the passing attack that
Zuppke will throw against the Wol-
verines, namely, Jack Beynon, the
Varsity quarterback. Beynon is a
"picker," that is, one who looks for
a receiver and then passes to him.
Statistics show him to be the most
dangerous passer that Michigan will
face this year.
To replace this passing threat if
the Wolverines spread out in defense,
Illinois will pull another trick out of
the bag with Lindberg, star punter,
runner, and pass receiver, and try
to shake him loose. However, al-
though the Illini passing attack
against Army was stopped by a
charging line, it still be be Zuppke's
chief threat because his line will not
be expected to open holes in the
Michigan line or his backs skirt the
