Kipke Drives Wolverines Through Long And Hard Practice








Just A ,Prayer... .
Blind Man's Buff ....
* * *
THE PUNT AND THE PASS WERE ALL GONE . . . blown away in the
teeth of the howling gale that roared and eddied into the open end of
the tremendous Illinois horseshoe stadium. Only the prayer remained and
all through that final quarter, with a team of madly fighting Indians driven
absolutely berserk with the idea of beating Michigan backing the Wol-
verines up against their goal line time and again, it was just one prayer
after another to the handful of freezing Maize and Blue die-hards who
watched their team make last stand after last stand.
Passes by Beynon, a superlative marksman, from passing plays which
gave him all the time in the world to get the ball off, took the spheroid into
Michigan territory time and again. But then the Illini would try running
plays, and the line of blue would bend and buckle with the momentum of a
charging Illinois back. But it seldom broke, and the ball would revert to
Michigan. John Regeczi would fall back and kick into the screaming wind,
and a punt which would have gone fifty or sixty yards on a still day would
soar up to the height of the pressbox in the upper tier and come down
after travelling twenty or thirty yards. Then it was up to the Indians to
start all over again. And they did.
With just three minutes to go, one of Regeczi's punts was downed on the
Maize and Blue 44-yard line. Beynon shot a pass to Froschauer who was
downed on the 31-yard line. After two passes which were barely incomplete,'
a heave to Lindberg on the 14-yard line was completed with a scant two
minutes to go. Froschauer hit the line for one yard, Beynon added another
yard, and Lindberg slid off tackle for five. It was fourth down and three to
go on about the six-yard line. Froschauer dove into the line and was
stopped cold.
Michigan rooters breathed a sigh of relief. There was just about one
minute to go, and it was Michigan's ball. Fay hit the line twice . . . just
absorbing time. Then Regeci punted from behind the goal line and the
kick soared up to the thirty-yard line fifteen yards from the east sidelines.
An Illinois back was under it, signalled for a fair catch and snagged it
LESS THAN A MINUTE TO GO. . . about time for two plays. . . and
everyone thought that the only chance Illinois had was for a successful
pass. But no, Beynon consulted with 'the referee, who told the 1ichigan
team that Illinois had elected to make a free kick, which is optional after a
fair catch. So the entire Wolverine team had to stand ten yards back and
watch this place-kick which meant the championship.
Prayers of the Michigan team and rooters arose like incense over that
silent stadium. I found myself raving insanely. Deliberately, Cummings
tested the wind, pulled up handfuls0-

Scrimmage By'
Revamped Line
Illini Game Dubbed 'Off
Day' By Gridders; Team
Points For Iowa
A desperate Michigan grid coach
drove his humbled squad through a
long hard scrimmage drill yesterday
afternoon. Both coach and players
worked overtime, and gave the im-
pression that Iowa will not get off
easy in the game here Saturday if
hard work will prevent it. Kip's voice
barked out in the crisp wind and sent
a revamped line-up through the pass-
ing, straight running, and deception
plays that failed to crush the power-
ful Illini last week.
Although it is generally claimed
that overconfidence nearly upset the
team, the men themselves say they
fully realized the power Illinois
claimed, but that both their offense
and defense just could not click. Carl
Savage, who was seriously injured in
the game, said he and the rest of the
boys had one of those off days that
every team must encounter during a

The Maize and Blue received by far their greatest scare of the
season in their clash at Urbana, Ill., with the battling Illini, but man-
aged to pull out a 7-6 triumph. Here Dave Cook, Illinois fullback, is

All-Campus Event
Won By Hutchinson
A young fellow named Bill Hutch-
inson is making a name for himself
down around Ferry Field and vi-
cinity. He has a business andhe's
very good at it. That business is
cross-country. Yesterday toward eve-
ning, Bill crossed the finish line
ahead of the other thirteen entries
in the all-campus cross-country meet.
That in itself would not be too aston-
ishing becauseeveryone knows that
'Bill is a pretty fast boy over the
hill and dale stretch. But the point
is that Bill started the race with- a
handicap of over four minutes and
still managed to nose out Aikens who

tallied a very close second. Wardell
was also mixed up in that game fight
the three men staged close to the fin-
ish. He ended in third place. Pinker-
ton led the next bunch of racers to
the finish and gained fourth posi-
tion. Hutchinson, by the way, has
also garnered the freshman trophy.
Both Coach Hoyt and Coach Do-
herty expressed themselves as being
more than pleased with the results.
All sophomores and second se-
mester freshmen who are eligible
and wish to try out for manager-
ship of the basketball team, report
to Harry Hattenback at 7:30 any
night this week at the Intramural

of grass, practised his swing at least
four times. The gale hissed and tore
at the corner of the pressbox with
prying fingers. The typewriter was
stiff with cold.
It was all up to Cummings. He had
missed his first conversion of the sea-
son in the first quarter. Would he
miss again? The line was directly
down wind. He came forward, and
his toe met the ball. It swept upward
. . . just the right height. It looked
perfect from the pressbox. There was
a roar from the stadium.. It was good.
Pandemonium reigned in the press-
box for at least seven seconds. We
had lost. As a last desperate hope, I'
looked at the referee. He was sweep-
ing his hands back and forth below
his waist. It wasn't good after all!
The teams lined up again
Michigan had a new lease on life.
Fay, clutching the ball like the pre-
cious thing it was, took it gingerly
into the Illinois wall as the gun
* *.*
AND NOW ask me wherefor all this.
Was not Michigan favored to win
hands down?
I 'came into Champaign Friday
night. There was a "Beat Michigan"'

campaign on. Everyone I talked to
thought the Illini had a good chance.
I got scared. Did they really expect
to beat the Wolverines?
I had just barely managed to reas-
sure myself by the time I got out to
the stadium. And then I noticed that
awful cyclone. The game was dom-
inated by the wind. The team going
against it was constantly in hot
water. It wasn't a football contest;
it was a battle with the elements.
Don't criticize Michigan's play un-
less you saw the game. They were
plenty good, but it was a game of
blind man's bluff for the Wolverines
with the opposition keen-sighted.
You see, Illinois had had a rest of
two weeks with the opportunity to
scout all of Michigan's play and
there was not much time for the
Wolverines to revise the attack be-
tween the Chicago game and the Illi-
snois game.
On the other hand, Illinois had ally
the time in the world to rehearse new
formations, and there wasn't one
thing they did which didn't surprise
Michigan. Illini were all over the
field, and Michigan didn't have any
idea where all those passes and bucks
were going.
