Star Guard Not Permanently Out Of Line-Up

The Hoptoad Poetry
THE FOLLOWING POEM was submitted yesterday by Mr. C. J. Dyer, to
whom thanks for a poem which after the Illinois game is very appro-
priate, as well as not lacking in aesthetic appeal. I know that Mr. Dyer, a
graduate of West Point in '24 will not object if I review it for the HOPTOAD
POETRY PRIZE, which I shall do below; as this business of poetry review-
ing fascinates me and I have been feeling envious of the English depart-
ment ever since they began their series of reviews in the editorial pages of
(An Ode to a Wooden Plug)
Ulysses, King of Ithaca,
Who thunk, as real kings should,
Got in, with several trusty lads,
A hoss carved out of wood.
This graven bronk the Greeks then
On Ilium's sizzling strand,
And hieing them unto their ships,
They beat it from the land.
Came Priam, Nibs of Ilium,
His morning leer to grin;
Espied the nag out on the sands,
And bade them fetch it in.
Within the walls of Troy, wherein
Full many a moon no Greek
Had quaffed his wine, nor doffed his
Nor pecked him maidling's cheek!
They knelt them down and wor-
Did these hippolatrous chumps;
They guzzled and they gorged so
Theyall but got the mumps.
That night, while Troy lay torpid
And a-snoring like the just,
Lyss and his gang from Hellas
Slipped out and hit the dust.
They conked the guard; they oped
They sneaked the others in;
Then, having cooked the Trojan
Betook to honest sin.
They slew a while to get warmed up,
And then to change the fun,
They slaughtered; then just butch-
Until-Boy! when they got done-
There weren't even POLLIWOGS
Left 'neath the Trojan sun!
The moral to this tale, my friend,
(Heed morals, for its pays!)
Is: if a Greek leaves you a hoss,
Just let him stand and graze.
THIS POEM IS HIGHLY ALLE-
GORICAL, but I question wheth-
er anyone not as highly trained in
appreciation of poetry as we of the
English department can appreciate
the fortuitous metaphors and the
light and feathery quality of the sub-
tle imagery. Obviously, the Trojans
do not represent U. S. C. as in well-
organized pigskin circles, but in this
case represent Michigan, while The
Greeks represent Illinois instead of
The wooden horse subtly brings
Notre Dame into the picture . .. the
four horsemen of Notre Dame, of
course ! Here the allegory becomes
slightly confused to me and I will
have to ask the rest of the boys in
the department for an opinion. But
it certainly merits a great deal of at-
tention for the Hoptoad prizes.

its climax this week when the cham-

As things stand now, the Freshmen

Alpha Phi's Defeat Kappas, 2-1
In the Intramural division, play
goes into the second week of elim-
ination. In a close-f aught battle
Alpha Phi edged out the Kappa Kap-
pa Gamma team, finishing on the
long end of a 2 to 1 score. Betty
Healy and Jeanette Detwiler were re-
sponsible for the goals which won
the game, while Wilson tallied late
in the second half to put the Kappas
back in the running. They were, how-
ever, not able to rally sufficiently to

YALE WARNS BULLDOGS
NEW HAVEN, Nov. 6.-(P)--A
warning to the Georgia Bulldogs from
Yale is that they'd better get the
extra point if they get a touchdown.
Claire Curtin, who handles such jobs
for the Elis, has a perfect record so
far--eight chances and eight points.
changed for the better, I believe if
two words were transposed. Instead
of saying "His morning leer to grin,"
you could say, "His morning grin to
leer" . . . and then change the final
line to rhyme thus . . . instead of
"He bade them bring it in" say "He
bade them bring it here." Of course
the reader would not know where
"here" is, but I like to rhyme "leer"
and "here" and have been doing so
for years. .
Outside of that, I can see nothing
wrong in the technical end of the
poem and I wish to add here that any
additional poetry which may be sub-
mitted will be carefully reviewed ...
but it must be on sports.
Everhardus May Replace
Regeczi As Punter For3
Coach Harry Kipke stressed the
punting phase of football yesterday
when he had his three star kickers,
Johnny Regeczi, Herm Everhardus,
and Russ Oliver, practising on plac-
Regeczi's reversal of form in kick-
ing has worried Kipke to no little
extent. In the game with Illinois
last Saturday, the big junior's kick-
ing fell below his usual excellent form
and caused the "Wolverines no end
of embarrassment. If Regeczi'spunt-
ing does not pick up, Kipke may as-
sign the kicking duties to Herm Ever-
hardus for this Saturday's game.
After the punting workout, the
Varsity squad was taken indoors for
practice on the Iowa plays.
The practice consisted mainly in
getting the squad used to the type of'
play that Iowa is expected to use in
the game this Saturday.
The "B" team, under the direction
of Coach Ray Courtright who scouted
the Hawkeyes, ran through the Iowan
plays against the Varsity. Some time
was placed on the study of the Iowa
shift, a variation of the old Minne-
sota shift which has the center and
the tackles on the line of scrimmage
as soon as the huddle is ended. The
guards are back of the line and shift
up to the line of scrimmage for the
play with a 1-2-3 count and the
backfield gets into a z-shaped posi-
Carl Savage, who was injured in
the game last Saturday against Illi-
nois, will probably be out until the
last game of the season, the game
with Northwestern. Bill Borgmann
took his place at guard in -the prac-
tice yesterday and will undoubtedly
be starting in the game Saturday.
Willard' Hildebrand also took turn'
with Kowalik at the other guard po-
The squad is still getting over the
beating of body administered by the
Illini but is in better condition than
it was at the beginning of this week.

Crayne and Laws are the two
Hawkeye backs expected to gain the
most ground against Michigan this
week. Laws is not as spectacular a
player as Crayne but can be depended
upon to get several yards when yards
are hard to get. Laws, besides run-
ning with the ball, is a southpaw
passer of considerable repute and

THE MICHIGAN DAILY
AN OFFICIAL RECORD
-Associated Press Photo
A chip out of the bone in Savage's left foot suffered in the Illinois
game Saturday has forced him out of the line-up. "Butch's" excellent
work at the guard post will be missed by the Wolverines against Iowa
and Minnesota, but the hijury has a 50-50 chance to heal sufficiently to
permit him to play against Northwestern.

of the freshman football squad are
being watched with more than the
ordinary amount of interest. Next
year the varsity suffers the loss of
some eight regulars, together with
numerous substitutes by the gradua-

quota of replacements will be neces-
sary. The coaching staff hopes that
