underrated or overrated," so
they say. And that's astonishingly
true. Unfortunately even hte gen-
tlemen of the press must eat, and in
order to keep on eating steadily they
must have something to write about.
Consequently, certain favored ath-
letes get the bulk of the publicity.
They are "good copy."
Many of the deserving are rela-
tively -unsung. Second-stringers in
any game work just about as hard
as top-flight players, but try and in-
terest your readers in second-string-
ers! It's just not being done this
season or almost any season.
And there are other considerations
which bring about over and under-
estimation of athletes. If a sopho-
more is good, he is likely to be lauded
to the skies. Maybe it's because the
press-box boys like the alliteration,
"sophomore sensation." Look at the
strange case of Harry Newman. New-
man was probably not as good as
he was cracked up to be when he was
a sophomore. Nor was he as bad
as he was reputed to be during his
junior year. All of which hedemon-
strated when he was a senior.
We, in the columns of The Daily,
will commit such injustices. It is
inevitable, and we apologize in ad-
vance. If we were to be honest about
such things, we would probably
award the palm for a nice perform-
ance in Saturday's scrimmage to Hil-
ton Ponto, diminutive second string
guard, who climaxed a consistent
afternoon by recovering a blocked
punt and being rather mauled by
disgruntled members of the opposi-
tion who climbed his frame more
than somewhat.
* * *
BOTH scrimmages last week were
satisfactory from the standpoint of
the first stringers. Heston and Ever-
hardus have taken on new brilliancy
as runners; Regeczi kicked, blocked,
and tackled in fine fashion, while
Fay nad Renner ran the team de-
cidedly well.
That quarterback position is still a
question mark. Fay is a good think-
er, a good blocker, a very steady
player. But Renner is a passer the
like of which is seldom seen on a
gridiron. He can also block and run.
But he doesn't handle punts with
the surety commanded by Fay, nor
run with the brilliancy of Everhar-
dus and Heston. Maybe that will
come later. '.
Unfortunately, the quarterback in
the Michigan system is the safety-
man on defense, and Renner doesn't
seem to be able to return punts very
well. We'd like to see either Ever-
hardus or Heston running back
punts in a broken field. Heston, at
his new position of fullback is back-

7, but it will be a team that already
has one hard game under its belt,

they are conceded a chance to give

(Iowa) team.
Capt. Bernard McNutt and Alton
Kircher, right halfback and quarter
respectively, are the only members of
last year's driving backfield combi-
nation to return.

veteran regular, will probably hold

Season tickets for the five home
games of the year, withdrawal of
the use of identification cards, and
general admission tickets selling for
one dollar are a few of the benefits
coming to Michigan's football fans as
a result of various changes necessi-
tated by the current decrease in the.
University's budget.
For the first time in the history of
Michigan football, students, faculty
members, and others will be per-
mitted to purchase at a reduction
this year reserved seats to all games
played in Ann Arbor. Individually,
tickets for these five games would
total $12.45, but the Athletic Asso-
ciation now offers a season ticket for
$10, tax included. Such seats can
be ordered when student coupons are
sent in and will thus be located ad-
jacent to student seats.
As a result of the decision to do
away with student identification
cards in connection with athletic
events, only students enrolling in the
University for the first time were
required to have photographs made,
during registration week. These are
to be used to complete office records
of new students and their presenta-

Report To Fisher For
Frosh Football
Under the guidance of Assistant
Coach Ken Doherty the varsity cross-
country squad has been working out
daily for the last week in prepara-
tion for the fall season. Doherty
has full charge 'of the varsity since
Coach Charlie Hoyt is now recover-
ing from an illness of nine weeks and
probably will not be back at his
duties until Nov. 1.
The squad this year has Captain
Ostrander, Rod Howell, Clark, Childs,
Servis, and McMannus as veterans of
former years. Also there are Har-
vey Smith, a former Illinois cross-
country star, and Paul Gorman, an
outstanding freshman distance man
last year.
Three-Mile Course Used
The cross-country course at Mich-
igan is a three-mile length leading
along South State St., along the
south wall of Ferry Field, around the
golf course and under the railroad
acqueduct, back along State St. and
finishes on the Ferry Field track.
The four-mile course that is used
in conference meets is approximately
the same route, except that the run-
ners circle the new stadium instead
of the golf links and finish at the
end of the stadium on Ferry Field.
The first meet of the season is
scheduled for Octor 28 with Mich-
igan State. Two meets with Ypsi-
lanti Normal follow and an attempt
is being made to meet the undefeat-
ed team of Detroit City College in
place of the Conference meet.

At present there are twenty-five
men signed up for the squad, from
which a varsity team of seven men
will be picked to participate in the

Series Teams

Terry, Cronin Are First
Player - Managers Since
1906 To Meet In Series
Baseball fans this year will be
treated to the unusual sight of play-
er managers striving for the world's
baseball championship. Bill Terry
of the New York Giants and Joe
Cronin of the Washington Senators
will be the first since 1906 to pair
playing and strategic abilities to win
the World Series. The last pair of
player-managers to appear in the
World Series were Jones of the Chi-
cago White Sox and Chance of the
Chicago Cubs.
Both Terry and Cronin are the
outstanding players on their teams.
At present, Terry is the best batter
on the New York team and is among
the five leading hitters of the Na-
tional League. His hitting all year
has ranged between .320 and .335.
His fielding is one of the Giants'
towers of strength, for the Memphis
boy is undoubtedly one of the classi-
est first-basemen in either leagues.
Cronin Gets Fan Vote'
Although Joe Cronin is not the
best hitter on the Senators, being
second only to Heinie Manush, the
earlier part of the season saw him
leading the American League for
over a month. Defensively, he is the
best in his league. A fan vote con-
test held to determine the All-Star
teams for the game between the
two major leagues last July found
him with the largest vote conceded
to any shortstop in the circuit. His

Five All-State Grid

Five of the All-State of Michigan
prep football team as picked last fall
for the Detroit News by R. E. Rem-

yesterday to Coaches Ray Fisher and
Wally Weber of the regular and
Physical Ed. yearing squads on South
Ferry Field.
Led by Ferris Jennings, the Ann
Arbor High flash who was picked to
quarterback and captain the team
by Remington, three of the All-State
stars were out for Wally Weber's
class in theory and demonstration in
the morning.
Besides Jennings, John Turik, of
Lansing Eastern, and Harry Lutom-

lone representative of the Detroit

team. Both Lutomski and Hurik are
Jennings, while a capable passer
and punter, was rated chiefly for
his brilliant and dynamic leadership
and his outstandnig ability as a ball
carrier despite his comparative
slightness. He is 5 feet 92 inches
tall, weighs 140 and is 19 years old.
Lutomski was credited chiefly for
the brilliant record made by his team
in going through to an undefeated
season, and was called the best open
field runner of the Detro area. He
is big and fast and is also a capa-
ble passer.
Turik, too, was the ace of a team

defeated and claimed the state
championship. Although s m a11le r

A radical let-down in the pre-sea-
son grind marked yesterday's football
practice session. After the strenuous
scrimmage Saturday severa l. of the
men were on the injured list and
Coach Kipke seemed intent on iron-
ing out the new flaws that appeared
in the scrimmage.
The entire afternoon was spent
drilling on fundamentals and run-
ning through plays. A shorttime
was devoted to passing and punting,
with special emphasis on the ends
getting down the f*eld under the
kicks. Coach Jack Blott had a group
of guards working towards the per-
fection of the rump wheel offensive
Rump-Wheel Discussed
At present there is some specula-
tion as to whether the rump wheel
play can rightfully be called an in-
tent to draw the opposition off-side,
but Coach Kipke believes it will
stand as legal since it is a standard
play in many schools.
All linemen were given a session
on the fundamentals of blocking and
tackling, which were obstensibally
weak.in the scrimmage last week.
Chuck Bernard heads the injured
list this week. 'He is at present in
the Health Service infirmary suffer-
ing a recurrance of a leg infection
that developed this summer. How-
ever, the case is not extremely se-
rious and the potential all-American
will probably be in uniform again by
the end of the week. The also-in-
jured are: Malashevich, Tomango,
Semeyn, and Jacobson.
Team Weak On Plays
The latter part of the practice
was devoted to running off plays
between two teams. "Kip" substi-
tuted frequently in the line and back-
field of the offense and was not at
all backward in telling the boys that
they were not doing well. In fact the
entire dummy-scrimmage was a list-
less affair, the executions of the plays
were somewhat wobbly, and the
guards and backs were often not
there as interference for the ball-
carrier. The veterans lagged often
and gave one the impression that
they might be getting a bit stale.
Throughout the practice passes
were conspicuously absent and Kipke
worked hard on the running offen-
sive plays. There was little chance
yesterday for any of the men show-
ing improvement over Saturday's
work, as everyone enjoyed the light
work-out in the hot, sultry weather.
From the scrimmage last week it
looks as if the starting line this year
