I do not think that the Consensus
this week will be as accurate as last
week's, which was .815 right. Don
Bird was high in the individual to-
tals with .821, which is pretty good
picking on a flock of mid-season
Incidentally, Mr. Bird also called
the tie last week between Harvard
and Dartmouth, which entitles him
to wear the Swami's turban for at
least two weeks. This week Art Car-
stens is calling Northwestern-Min-
nesota a tie, but I very seriously
doubt whether he will be as success-
My own personal reaction to the
Consensus this week is that it does
not correctly reflect the strengths of
the teams. For instance, it strikes
me that, picking Dartmouth over
Yale by five votes to none is rather
foolish inasmuch as Dartmouth has
not defeated Yale in years. Person-
ally, I would pick Yale, but I am not
empowered to say anything about
it in :the Consensus. I should also
pick W & J over Duquesne, and ac-
cord St. Mary's a good chance to
beat Fordham's Rams. Besides that,
I think that West Virginia will beat
Marquette. . . ah well, maybe I'm
Eastern Grids
Feature Three
Battles Today
Today, in the mid-season of foot-
ball, finds comparative quiet reign-
ing on the Eastern battlefront. Only
three games are outstanding, Navy-
Notre Dame, Yale-Dartmouth, and
Fordham-St. Mary's, and all of them
are billed as thrillers.
Heretofore a game between Navy
and Notre Dame would not have
brought much comment, other than
a caustic remark about the Irish
scheduling such a set-up for mid-
season. This year the South Benders
have something to worry about, for
they have been trampled under the
feet of the Pitt Panthers, tied by a
light Kansas team, and barely eked
out a win over Indiana in a hard

Seek First Rambler Defeat
Navy is about in the same position,
but the Middies are still rejoicing
over their 13 to 0 slaughter of Penn
last week, and besides, they scent
their first victory over the Ramblers.
Out of the six-game series between
the two schools, Navy has lost four
by huge scores, but in the last two
came a bit closer to stopping the
Irish. Notre Dame is favored by
sports writers, but Navy is out for

For Conference

Between Minnesota And
Wisconsin At Chicago
Mid-Season Standings Are
Passes As Race.Begins
To Narrow Down
The eyes of the Big Ten football
world are on the Sovereign State of
Illinois today with three conference
games scheduled within its bounds.
Besides the Michigan-Illinois game
at Champaign, Northwestern enter-
tains Minnesota's Gophers at Dyche
Stadium, Evanston, and Wisconsin
comes in to do battle with Chicago
at Stagg Field.
Though the Wolverine-Sucker
battle brings together two teams un-
defeated in Conference play this year,
experts are looking to the North-
western-Gopher tilt to furnish the
toughest battle of the day.
A green Wildcat team has been
coming along fast since it was tied
by Indiana in their first Big Ten
game. They outplayed Ohio State
last week but lost the game on two
bad breaks.
Sophs Are Gopher Pride
Minnesota's sophomore aggregation
is undoubtedly strong and will be fa-
vored over Hanley's proteges, but
Michigan supporters regard the game
as an indicator of what is to come
for Kipke's Wolverines.
Minnesota's aggregation feels that
it is still in the running for the
Conference crown, anticipating a win
over Michigan in two weeks.
The Gopher backfield of Lund, Al-
phonse, Seidel and Beise is touted
a~s the best at the northern school in
nany seasons, but the heavy forward
wall must be given the credit for
shaking the stellar backs into the
open for their scintillating dashes.
Coach Bierman took 35 husky
Gophers with him when he boarded
the train for Chicago Thursday eve-
ning., Ticket sales indicate that at
least 5,000 Swedish rooters will be
in the Dyche Field stands this after-
Buckeyes Favored
In the only conference game out-
side of Illinois, Ohio State's raging
Buckeyes are favored to crush In-
diana on the former's home grid.
Willaman's men came back last week
to take a thriller from Northwestern
and are rated good enough to run
wild over a comparatively weak Hoo-
sier outfit.
"The battle of the underdogs"
might be the title tacked to the Chi-
cago-Wisconsin game today. Neither
team has won a Conference struggle,
but experts in the Windy City for
the game, feel that the Maroons are
gaining poise under Clark Shaugh-
nessy's tutelage and will win today's
The remaining two Conference
teams go afield for today's opposition.
Those who feel that the Big Ten
is the toughest league in the coun-
try this year welcome the Purdue-
Carnegie Tech game as further proof
of that belief. The fact that Carnegie
has an impressive record that in-
cludes a win over Notre Dame does
not scare critics who give Purdue
the edge. Coach Noble Kizer has been
worried by a multitude of minor in-
juriesdduring the week, but thinks
that his whole first team will be in
shape to start today. The Boiler-
maker offense is polished to a knife
edge to pierce a Carnegie Tech de-
fense that has held opponents score-

less thus far this season.
An ancient intra-state rivalry will
keep Iowa's team occupied this after-
noon. Ossie Solem's eleven takes on
Iowa State in a game that is con-
ceded to the Conference team if
they can stop a stubborn State pass-
ing attack. Solem's starting quartette
of backs, Laws, Fisher, Hoover, and
Crayne are all raring to go, and plan
to polish up something nice for Mich-
igan next week.
Walter Halas, former baseball and
basketball coach at Notre Dame and
a brother of Owner-Coach George
Halas of the Chicago Bears, does
much scouting for the pro eleven.
At the present time, the Bears are
leading their professional league.-

Fay Proves Worth As Newman's Successor

Spartans, Titans
Face Strong Foes
In Today's Tilts
Holy Cross Is Undefeated,
Thus Far; Kansas State
Has Impressive Record
Two games of national import-
ance will be held in Michigan today
with Michigan State meeting Kansas
State at East Lansing and the Uni-
versity of Detroit matching attacks
and defenses with Holy Cross at De-
Both of these contests should be
bitterly contested from the opening
whistle to the final gun. The Cru-
saders have one of the finest teams
in the East while the Western Ag-
gies rank with the best grid outfits
in the sector. Neither of the Mich-
igan teams, although neither can show
an unsullied record, can be classed
as a set-up for any machine in the
Crusaders Have Clean Slate
The U. of D.-Holy Cross contest
looms as one of the most important
games of the day. The Crusaders
have not been defeated to date, while
piling up 113 points to 21 for the
opposition in five games. The titans,
with one defeat at the hands of Du-
quesne, have scored 93 points to 20.
At East Lansing there will be an-
other great intersectional battle be-
tween two strong teams. Kansas
State, with only one defeat in five
games, has the second best team in
the Big Six. Their lone defeat came
at the hands of Nebraska, the ac-
knowledged class of the league. Last
week, the Aggies beat Kansas Uni-
versity, the team that tied Notre
Dame earlier in the season. The
Spartans also can point to only one
defeat in five games - at the hands
of Michigan. Last Saturday, State
made their bid for national promi-
nence by crushing Syracuse, 27-3.
Nebraska Defends Title
At Columbus, Mo., the Cornhusk-
ers of Nebraska will be trying to
keep their slate clean and maintain
their leadership of the Big Six
against Missouri. Missouri has won
only one game so far this season
and does not have the man-power
to cope with Nebraska.
Frank Carideo, former all-American
quarterback at Notre Dame, has
failed to win a single major game
during his first two years as head
coach of the University of Missouri.

Trojans Rest
As Stanford
Although the two outstanding elev-
ens of the West coast, Southern Cal-
ifornia and Oregon State, take a
rest today, the Far West is offering
an interesting football card.
Stanford is running into a tartar
when it meets the Olympic Club. The
Olympics have lost several battles but
always manage to put up a strong
fight with the Palo Alto boys. Last
year, Stanford barely eked out a 6
to 0 victory and this year will find
the Olympic team more anxious for
Bears Meet U. C. L. A.-
California will take on the hard
U. C. L. A. gridders. The Bears still
remain one of the hardest teams on]
the Coast despite the 6 to 3 set-
back they suffered last week at the
hands of the Trojans. The fact that
the Los Angeles eleven were upset
last week by Oregon will make them
work all the harder for victory
though statistics only give them an
outside chance.
An interesting intersectional tussle
at Santa Clara will hold some of the
spotlight when Rice comes west to
battle Santa Clara University. Both
teams are evenly matched and the
game is considered to be a toss-up.

Michigan's title-bent eleven is augmented in its traditional system
of a "pass, punt, and prayer" by its captain, Stan Fay. Fay has had
the reputation of a great blocking halfback since his debut on the
Ann Arbor gridiron, and is this year winning a name for himself as a
powerful runner as well. He is at the quarterback post vacated by
Harry Newman this fall.
Harrier Squad To Encounter
Strong M. S. N. C. Team Today




Coach Ken Doherty takes a squad
of seven men to Ypsilanti this mor-
ning to engage the M. S. N. C. har-
rier squad at 11:30 a. m. in a three
and three-quarter mile grind, but he
does so with about the same con-
fidence that a man goes after a ghost
in a very dark room. In other words
Mr. Doherty doesn't know exactly
what his boys will be required to face
in the way of competition.
Mr. Doherty should have a rather
good idea of the potentialities of his
foe, for he has heard it noised around
that the Ypsi squad finished second
in the N. A. U. meet in Chicago last
Saturday. And he also has heard
about Captain Karl Kahler, the Nor-
mal flash who has just cracked the
campus two-mile run record with the
time of 10:14.36. And he also knows
that Ypsi harrier teams are tradi-
tionally strong under the develop-
ment of Coach Lloyd Olds.
But Mr. Doherty holds a peculiar
CoaCI' OfGiants
Picks Wolverines

philosophical position. He is an ag-
nostic, with the consequent aroma of
optimism and pessimism. He says
that -the Ypsi runners won the N.
A. U. with the aid of several un-
known; but probably brilliant, fresh-
men. Michigan will not have to deal
with the freshmen. Karl Kahler is
good, but there is only one of him.
Besides, times mean nothing. It de-
pends upon the distance and condi-
tion of the course. Kahler's record
is for two miles only. Doherty does-
n't know anything.about Bellman,
Bob Dunn, Harold Ory, Jack Lyons,
and Scotty Adames, the boys who will
make up the rest of the Normal
squad, but he has his suspicions.
Wolverines Present Same Lines
For the Wolverines, the same line-
up that faced State last week will
compose the squad: Smith, the rather
brilliant senior who has been out-
running his .teammates consistently
and who finished first among them
at Lansing; Rod Howell, who finished
sixth at State after having recently
recovered from an illness; Captain
Bob Ostrander, who was ace man
last year, but who has not been up
to form as yet this year, finishing
ninth last Saturday; Jack Childs,
who came in eleventh; Paul Gorman,
John Clarke, and Dick McManus.
Doherty will depend on Smith,
Howell, Ostrander, and Childs to
keep the Wolverine score down.
There is no certainty that any one
of them will cross the finish line be-
fore the other. There may be a
change of form in Howell and Os-
trander. The course, which starts
at Alumni Field, will be a quarter of
a mile longer than the one at State
and will present different handicaps.
Mr. Doherty hoped yesterday that
he might have the same brisk kind
of weather today.

Inter-Coast Battle
Up at New York a strong St.
Mary's outfit is waiting, after trav-
elling across the country, to put the
damper on what is probably the
strongest eastern team, Fordham.
Suffice it to point out that these
teams represent the best of the twol
seacoasts and that one of them will
have been thrown out of the na-
tional spotlight by tonight. Coach
Cadigan of the Gaels of the West
claims victory for his boys, but at
the same time "Sleepy Jim" Crowley
assures the public that the Rams
will not let the East down to de-

football still peers down its nose at
the professional, game, despite the
rising popularity of the sport and the
annual rush of the headliners from
campus to commercial gridirons.
Such a feeling, however, isn't mu-
"I've seen some pretty good college
football teams," says Steve Owen,
coach of the Giants in the National
League, "but for all-around power
and class I'll take Michigan."
Bernard - All-American
"And there's a center out there,
one Charles Bernard, who does about
everything you can ask of a great
ball player. He passes perfectly, stops
everything in sight, has a fine of-
fensive charge, and he's always
knocking down passes. If that boy
isn't an All-American, then there
isn't any."
Owen, a tackle at Phillips Univer-
sity in Enid, Okla., in his college
days, then a star with the- Giants
before he took over the coaching
reins three years ago, sees consider-
able college football each year. He
usually takes his team along. The
pros play Sundays; they travel a lot
which makes it nice.
Fordham Rates Second
"Next to Michigan is Fordham, I
think," says Owen. "That's a big,
tough club. But Michigan has the
better reserves, a trifle more power.
Beating Ohio State, they looked a
good touchdown better than Ford-
ham did against Alabama.
College football, Owen thinks, is
doing itself a great deal of harm by
constant changing of rules. The pros
never did accept the idea of letting
fumbles and blocked kicks lay dead.
They pick them up and run until

non-scouting agreement between the
teams adds color to the fray as well.
The other games that might be
called interesting for the fans today
include Syracuse at Penn State, Co-
lumbia at Cornell, Brown at Prince-
ton, and Lehigh at Harvard.
Both Winners Last Week
Penn State downed Lehigh, 33 to 0,
and Syracuse took a beating from
Michigan State, 27 to 3. Whatever
this may mean, several experts have
doped it that Penn State will best
the Orange and that the Harvard
Crimson will "put the slug" on Le-
high. Columbia took Penn State 33 to
0 and Cornell bowed to both Mich-
1 0yan and I f rn 1111 0 Twpvr in.

Since the beginning of the semes-
ter, Coach Johnstone has conducted,
a series of tennis tournaments in
order to obtain first hand informa-
tion on the 1934 edition of the Var-
sity tennis-team. Candidates for the
Varsity have been playing two
matches a week in a prolonged set
of about twenty-five.
The men with the greatest per-
centage of victories will form the
nucleus of the first practice squad. In
addition, to other tourneys, the In-
vitational, and the All-Campus are
being run off.

Thirty-five men came out for the
