Fifteen Seniors

To Close Local



In Stadium Saturday


Inspiration . .
Or Apathy?
COACH KIPKE, who last week near-e
ly wore out a pair of shoes andl
three fingernails d i g g in g through
the crust of snow and ice in an at-
tempt to get at his football-game1
hors-d'ouvres of grass, is in the habit;
of keeping something up his sleeve
besides his arm.
And thereby, it seems to me, hangs]
a tale which will be told Saturday
on the gridiron if Michigan over-
comes Minnesota's snow-snuffing Vi-
kings. In other words the set-up1
is such that it will take a good deal
of genius son the part of Michigan's
fodder-destroying mentor to whip his
team into shape to beat the Gophers.
It will also take a large measure of
anotheraingredient, concerning which
more later.
Now if you will recall, the closest
contest of the %season was that
against the Illini, who were set and
primed to beat the Wolverines by a
two week's combined rest and con-
centration period, the concentration
being, of course, on Michigan's plays
and entirely new formations of their
own with which to baffle the local
boys. And they came so close to
turning the trick that it was just one
attack of jitters after another to
Michigan followers who saw that
Again the Wolverines must face
that situation. The powerful North-
men have had the same two weeks'
rest period in which you can bet your
final shoe-button that Bierman and
his associates have been beating their
brains into a light fluff for ways and
means to upset the Maize and Blue.
And don't forget that the eleven gen-
tlemen from Minnesota beat Iowa by
two touchdowns.
supplication to the local deities.
It is a time for considerable enthusi-
asm and fervor. It is also time that
the team began to suspect that the
student body desired a Big Ten
championship and that that same
student body is behind it. Now if
you have no desire to see Michigan
win another Western Conference
title, you might just as well stop
reading right here, and never darken
my column again.
Michigan does not deserve a win-
ning football team. Why for all the
support the squad has gotten so far
... that same squad which has gone
through nine dull weeks of grinding
work and six of the toughest games
played in the nation this fall ...
they might just as well be playing
badminton in one of the campus
And when that team wins a close
game over an outfit of opponents
whose dearest wish is to upset Michi-
gan, Mr. Average Student does not
realize that this continual succes-
sion of inspired teams may tire the
lads. So instead of celebrating, he
goes home and gripes because they
didn't win by four or five touch-
But now is the time for all good
men. . . yes, and ladies too. . . to
come to the aid of the football team.
There will be a pep-meeting Friday
evening in Hill auditorium. Time:
7:30. Members of that team which
is approaching the crucial game Sat-
urday will be there to find e just
what the student body thinks of
them. And believe me, they'll find

out one way or the other! What do
you say, Michigan? Inspiration or

Wolverine Grid
Coaches Fear
Gopher Attack
Strategy Stressed In Field
House Workout; Boys
Tired, Kipke Says
Coach Harry Kipke looks to strat-
egy to win the game with Minnesota
here Saturday. There's no doubt of
it, for the Coach started his team's
work for the Gophers yesterday in
the Field House with a long drill on
signal-calling and running through
plays. He had both Renner and
Capt. Fay directing the team through
Michigan's whole book of plays,
stressing particularly deceptive for-
Kipke said the rest that the team
had yesterday was well deserved.
"The boys have been working
without a letup since Sept. 15," he
said, "and that's a hard grind for
them. They were getting pretty
tired, although not, by any means,
"I needed a rest too," he continued.
He conceded that he didn't get much,
but that he did bag some nice ducks.
"Now that they've had their rest,"
Kipke said, "they'll have to work
hard the remainder of the week. This
Minnesota outfit is a tough bunch."
Coach Bennie Oosterbaan, who has
been scouting the Gohers this year
was not a bit optimistic about the
Wolverines' chances in the game.
"This boy Lund is one of the hard-
est running backs in the country,"
he said, "and they have a flanker
play that is bound to give Michigan
a lot of trouble."
In discussing the Iowa game, Ath-
letic Director Fielding H. Yost said
that Michigan's defense against the
Hawkeye running attack looked good
to him.
"The fact that they completed
more passes against us," he said,
"does not mean that we could not
stop them. Any team that can't gain
through the line must throw passes.
You can't expect us to Ite so perfect
that they don't complete any. It
just happened that one of Iowa's
went for a touchdown."
Resting Place Of Little
Brown Jug Is Doubtful
Little Oscar Munson, equipment
custodian for the Minnesota football
team, will make his biennial trip to
Ann Arbor this week-end in the hope
of taking back to Minneapolis with
him the little brown jug which he
put into circulation just 30 years ago.
But on the squat shoulders of that
five gallon jug rest more Michigan
hopes and fears this year than ever
before. If the bit of crockery stays
in Ann Arbor a Conference cham-
pionship will also probably stay here
and Kipke's men will have hurdled
another barrier toward a National
On the other hand the Gophers are
just as anxious to have Little Os-
car's wish fulfilled, for besides the
crockery a victory will bring them a
good chance to cop the Conference
title if Iowa or Indiana can knock off

Snow Acts To
Cancel Meet
With Normal'
Even the elements smiled sourly
upon the already abbreviated Varsity
crossecountry schedule, with the con-
sequent result of cancelling the final
meet of the year which was to be
run here today against Michigan
State Normal.
The squad began training soon af-
ter school opened in September, with
the knowledge that there would be
lacking the glamor of Conference
meets. After several weeks of inten-
sive training, a group of seven men
were in all readiness for the first
scheduled meet, against Western
State. Harvey Smith, running his
first and last year for Michigan,
showed his heels to the harriers from
Kalamazoo and his own teammates,
to win handily. John Childs fin-
ished second, and these two positions
helped to lower the locals' total
enough to give them a decisive vic-
On the following two Saturdays,
the Maize and Blue travelled to Lan-
sing and. Ypsilanti, respectively, re-
ceiving a drubbing from State, and
defeating Michigan State Normal. In
this race, Michigan's captain, Bob
Ostrander, returned to his form of
'ore, when he trailed Normal's ace,
Kahler, to the tape to finish second.
And so, the season ended that Sat-
urday, giving Michigan a season's
percentage of two wins and one loss.
Five of the seven Michigan harriers
lave ended their college cross coun-
ry careers. They are: Captain Rob-

"Our last game in the Stadium.
That is what a group of Wolverine
football players are thinking this
week as they prepare for the final
home game of the season Saturday
against Minnesota.
Eight of these seniors have been
among the starting Varsity in most
of the games this season. They are
Capt. Stan Fay, Chuck Bernard, Her-
man Everhardus, Ted Petoskey, John
Kowalik, Francis Wistert, Carl Sav-
age, and Jack Heston. Savage and
Estil Tessmer, another senior, are not
expected to break into the lineup due
to injuries which
they have suffered
this year. Louis
W e s t o v e r, Ted
Chapman, Mac:
McGuire, H i l t o n
Ponto, Bill Shea,
and Bob Wells areĀ«
the reserves who
will wear the Maize
and Blue for the
last time in the
For the last time '-
these players will be defending the
"Little Brown Jug," the historic tro-
phy that Michigan and Minnesota
have battled over for years. For the
last time Michigan rooters will have
an opportunity to cheer these seniors
as they trot out on the field for the
final home game of the season.
The leader of the Wolverines is
Fay, captain and for the third year
a member of the Varsity. In 1931
and. 1932, Fay was the regular half-
back of the team that ranked among
the leaders of the nation. This year,

due to the graduation of Newman,
Fay was shifted to quarterback
where he has capably fulfilled the
requirements of leadership.
At the pivot post for the past two
seasons has been Bernard, ranked as
the outstanding center in the nation
and one of the finest pivot men in
the history of football. During his
sophomore y e a r,
Bernard was un-
derstudy to Ray
Morrison, an All-
American. As a :
junior and senior,
Chuck has sur- ~

ball, will play his last home game as
a Wolverine. A triple-threat man,
the "Flying Dutchman" has risen to
great heights in his final year and
has been an inspiration to his team-
An All-American possibility for an
end position is found in Petoskey,
who is recognized as one of Michi-
gan 's all-time great. Ted starred as
a sophomore and junior, and this
year has been playing the best foot-
ball of his career. A great defensive
end, his slashing play will be sorely
missed next season.

the country. It was Wistert's superb

by opposing tack-
lers. A regular halfback for the third
year, Jack will be hard to replace.
Kowalik and Savage are two of
the best guards in the Big Ten. Un-
til Savage was injured in the Illinois
game, they had consistently out-
played the opposition. A great deal
of Michigan's defensive strength lies
in her two guards.j
Of the remaining semors, Tessmer,
Westover, and Chapman stand out.
Tessmer, a good field general, has
been kept out of the Wolverine lineup
due to a broken collar-bone. West-
over and Chapman, both good foot-
ball players, have had the misfortune
to be understudies to greater players.
Talk of changing football coaches
because a college football team loses
a couple games is like sin, and I'm
against it. - Fielding H. Yost.
