Signals In Game
For First Team




--- I


Westover Occupies Back
Position; May Get Callj
Over Heston For Battle


Kowalik Will Play

Renner Stars In Passin
Practice; Gets Off Goo
Passes In Cold Weather



The second drastic shakeup of the
Michigan football team this year
loomed yesterday as Coach Harry
Kipke drove the squad through a
strenuous offensive drill.
Bill Renner, the Wolverine passing
ace, called signals for the Varsity in
place of Capt. Stan Fay, who has
been the regular quarterback since
the start of the season. Louis West-
over, reserve back for three years,
occupied Jack Heston's regular half
back berth and apparently will get
the starting call against Iowa Satur-

Backfield Change Looms


From yesterday's offensive practice,
indications seem to point that the
Michigan backfield on Saturday will
have Renner at quarterback, West-
over and Everhardus at the halfback
posts, and Regeczi at fullback. Heston
and Fay alternated in the Varsity
backfield yesterday and, although it
is doubtful if they will be in the
starting lineup against the Hawkeyes,'
they are sure to see action during the
game. Everhardus is expected to re-
place Regeczi as the Wolverine
The Wolverine line will undoubted-'
ly be the same that hasstarted the
games this season with the exception
of Carl Savage. The Michigan guard
was injured in the Illini game and
is not expected to recover until theI
Minnesota game, and he may not
play any more this year. Willard
Hildebrand, junior lineman, will)
probably get the call at the guard
Kowalik Will Play Saturday
The report that John Kowalik
would be out of the Iowa game on
Saturday was denied by both Kipke
and Trainer Roberts. Kowalik was
bruised in the fllini contest and has
been unable to participate in the
practice sessions this week. Kipke
stated that he would not work the
Wolverine guard in practice this week
but that he would start against the
Hawkeyes. Kowalik himself says that
he will be in shape Saturday and
as Kipke expressed it "Who should
know better than John?"
Yesterday's drill was held in a bit-
ter cold that caused players, coaches,
managers and reporters to keep mov-
ing to maintain any semblance of
warmth. Despite the cold that made
handling of the ball difficult, Renner
got off some excellent passes that
carried directly into the hands of his
recievers. Ted Petoskey and Louis
Westover were especially adept at
snaring the throws. As a picker of
eligible receivers, Renner is improv-
ing steadily. The reserve eleven, at-
tired in yellow jersies with the names
of Iowa players written across the
front, had difficulty in breaking up
the Varsity passing attack. Several
times it seemed that Renner would
not be able to get the ball away as
the reserves bore down upon him, but
the Youngstown quarter always man-
aged to get the ball away and into


IT IS INDEED a peculiar occurrence
when two guards as good and as
strong as Savage and Kowalik re-
ceive injuries to the feet and legs
in the course of one football game,
even as strenuous a contest as the
Illinois tea-party turned out to be.
In fact, it is such a strange oc-
currence that it has led me to look
for causes, and I believe that infor-
mation I -gained from one of the
freshman squad down at Illinois will
clear it up.
Those who have read Coach Kip-
ke's article in the current issue of
the Post will realize what an impor-
tant factor in the Michigan defense
the two guards are. They must go
straight forward, charging low and
hard and incidentally fast. They
must throw caution to the wind. And
don't you believe that Coach Zuppke
didn't know all this.
The Illini have a patent remedy
for over-enthusiasm on the part of
opposing guards. It is a play in which
one end is detailed to remove such
enthusiasm by waiting until the
guard is opposite him and going for
the ball-carrier. Then the end comes
in and blocks him viciously from the
Incidentally, John Kowalik will
probably start the game Saturday all
rumors to the contrary notwithstand-
I'VE BEEN WAITING for days now
to make some remarks about that
Illinois band. There were 360 men on
the field before the game and dur-
ing the half . . . and all in uni-
form and with intruments. Of course,
some of the instruments may have
been dummies, I don't know, but it
was a most impressive sight to see
this crowd go through the compli-
cated formations and extraordinary
gyrations now required of the college
They even had two drum-majors
and there was one Johnny running
around playing Indian with an In-
dian suit and everything. I was just
about to call up the booby hatch and
tell all the nice men in blue suits
to come out with their nets and
snaffle onto this Napoleon when he
stopped Tommy Roberts who was
quivering and quaking in his white
flannels down there in the cyclone.
The band came into formation be-
hind them and the Indian fellow
pulled out a peace-pipe and he and
Roberts had some drags at it while
the band played something or other.
Tommy didn't even cough . . .

Iowa Prepares
For Michigan's
Upset Saturday
Hawkeye's Stellar Guard
Out Of Line-Up Because
Of Infection
While the Wolverines have been
drilling in near-zero weather this
week, the Old Golds of Iowa have
been virtually wading through snow
in their preparations for Michigan in
the game Saturday. Coach Ossie
Solem has not given his team any
let-up, however, as he realizes that
the Hawkeyes must be at their peak
if they are to stop Michigan.
The biggest development in the
Iowa camp this week has been the
loss of Zud Schammel, stellar guard
for the Hawkeyes. Schammel suf-
fered a recurrence of a glandular in-
fection this week and is definitely
lost for the game this Saturday.
Singularly enough, the loss of
Schammel has been counteracted in
the Michigan line-up by Carl Sav-
age's foot injury which will also keep
him out of the game.
Secl In At Guard
Ochammel has been replaced by
Bill Secl. Otherwise the Iowa team
will be the same as
that which lost to .
Minnesota. The ,
backfield of Crayne,
Laws, Hoover, and
Fisher has been'
working w e 11 to-
gether and Solem
has been -drilling
them on new plays
this week.
So far this season Laws
the Hawkeye team has gained a to-
tal of 1,409 yards from scrimmage
against its rivals' 806 yards. AU but
71 yards of this total has been gained
by running plays, whereas one-third
of the opponent's yardage has been
made on forward passes. During the
practices this week the Coach has
had Crayne, Hoover, and Richards
doing the passing, but none of them
was accurate enough to satisfy the
Drill On Pass Defense
The entire team has been put
through an intensive drill on de-
fense against the passes they may
encounter this week. Solem has been
particularly careful that his men
realize the receiving capacities of
Ward and Petoskey and that they
are properly prepared.
The Iowa attack will therefore un-
doubtedly depend minly on the run-
ning of Crayne and M
Laws. On the de-
ense Capt. Moore, .
3enter, is the out-
standing mainstay
csf the Old .Golds
He is a big and ran-
gy player weighing {
210 pounds and is
depended on to stop Moore
the line plunges of Regeczi and Fay.
Upset Not Impossible
The Hawkeyes came out of their
27 to 7 victory over Iowa State last
week with no injuries and should be
in top form against the Wolverines.
It will be their big game of the year
if they can upset Michigan's title
hopes. The entire squad realizes this
and will be on edge for the game.

Pennsylvannia Will
Allow Sunday Ball
In Larger Cities
HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 8. - (/P)
-- They'll be playing Sunday base-
ball next spring in Philadelphia,
Pittsburgh and other large cities
of Pennsylvania.
In the first referendum on the
blue laws which have stood unwav-
ering since 1794, voters in the pop-
ulous centers of the state yesterday
authorized their local officials to li-
cense baseball and football games on
Sunday afternoons.
Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, home
of Pennsylvania's three major league
baseball clubs - the Athletics, Phil-
lies aid Pirates -voted overwhelm-
ingly for Sunday sports. Harrisburg,
Scranton, Wilkes-Barre, Reading and
York, with franchises in the New
York-Pennsylvania League, voted by
less decisive margins.
In these and all other communities
which voted "yes" on modification,
Sunday football is possible this year.
Purdue, Notre Dame
Renew Grid Battles
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Nov. 8.-When
Purdue meets Notre Dame at South
Bend Saturday in a renewal of the
Hoosier civil war on the gridiron, it
will mark the first meeting between
the two teams since 1923 when Noble
Kizer, now the Boilermaker's athletic
director and head football coach, was
a star guard on the Irish eleven. On
that occasion, Notre Dame handed
Purdue a 34 to 7 trimming.
The Irish have always been a thorn
in Purdue's football side. In 14 games
played between the two teams, Notre
Dame has won nine, Purdue has won
three, and two games have been ties.
Because, when he flew back to his
alma mater to attend a football game,
he could -find no d~ace to land his
plane in the vicinity of the college,

torney and wealthy alumnus of Ken-
yon College at Gambier, O., has leased

Lack Of Guards
On Cage Squad
Hinders Drill
Forwards, Centers Are All
Coach Cappon Has To
Work With At Present
"My kingdom for a guard" is the
pathetic cry of Coach Franklin Cap-
pon, Wolverine basketball mentor, as
he takes his squad into the second
week of pre-season cage drill.
18 Men at Practices
Although some 18 or 20 men are
working out four nights a week in the
Intramural Gym, only one or two of
these are guards, and without guards
the team can't practice formations,
they can't scrimmage, they can't do
much of anything except practice
shooting baskets and work on funda-
Coach Cappon's problem will be
solved as soon'as the football season
is over a month from now, for of
the 13 potential basketball candi-
dates on the grid squad, eight are
guards. "But what can I do until
then?" Cappon is asking.
Aside from the guard situation
things aren't lining up so badly for
the cagers. Coach Cappon has Al
Plummer, Jack Teitelbaum, Don
Black and Manny Fishman, forwards,
and Fred Allen, center, all of whom
have had Varsity experience.
Sophomores Report
Nine or ten sophomores have re-
ported for practice. Among them are
George Ford, John Jablonski, How-
ard LeVind and Phil McCallum of
last year's yearling team. McCallum
is the lone guard.
Unless some new guard material
turns up, pre-season drill will con-
tinue to be handicapped. Candidates
for the squad are urged to report to
the Intramural Gym any Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday
night at 7:30 with their own equip-
Practically the entire campus of
St. Joseph's University at St. Joseph,
New Brunswick, has been destroyed
by fire, leaving only the gymnasium
standing. The damage is estimated at

Fraternity Volley
League Will Open,
Season This Week

The highlight of the Fraternity In-
tramural sports program for' this
week is the opening of the volley
league tonight. Some 37 teams have
been organized into 8 divisions with
the members of each league oppos-
ing one another twice during the
course of the season. The winners
of the respective leagues then meet
to decide the Inter-Fraternity champ
pions. Alpha Kappa Lambda is the
defending titleholder. Games sched-
uled for tonight: Alpha Tau Omega
vs. Tau Kappa Epsiloam and Phi Mu
Alpha vs. Phi Alpha Delta at 7:15;
Alpha Omega vs. Phi Sigma Kappa
and Beta Theta Pi vs. Phi Sigma
Delta at 8:15.
Frat Meet On Nov. 13
The date of the Fraternity cross
country run has been set for Nov.
13th while the Independent men's
meet has been changed from the 15th
to the 16th of this month. A total
of 9 trial runs are required in order
to be eligible to compete. They may
be taken with Coch Doherty's squad
any afternoon or run alone providing
the runner is checked out at the In-
tramural office.
Only ten fraternities have entered
to date, a very poor percentage, when
one considers that there are nearly
one hundred such organizations on
the campus.
Will Be Team Contest
The oncoming contest is different
from the other two events already
held in that it is not an individual
run, but a team meet. Cross coun-
try meets are scored by totalling the
positions of the first five men of
each team to finish. Consequently,
the team having the lowest sum,
wins. However, as it is not possible:
for fraternities to enter a large
squad, only the first three finishers
of each squad will be counted.
Phi Kappa won the meet last year,
and they are looking forward to re-
peat their triumph. Seventy-five
points towards fraternity athletic su-
premacy will be awarded to the vic-
torious aggregation.
