This Grid-Graph *

SOMETHING over a decade ago, a
man named Larry Peck went to
a football game. He ar'rived too late
to get a seat and was forced, with
several thousand others, to mill in-
effectually around outside the gates
of the stadium listening to the cheers
and wondering just what was hap-
pening to the home team, which is
the only bothexciting and dull oc-
cupation we can think of.
But while he was milling this Mr.
Peck, a rotund, jovial little man, gave
birth to an idea which later gave re-
lief to the seatless, tantalized mobs
and proved a great comfort to those
who could not afford to follow the
local team on its peregrinations. In-
cidentally, we understand, the idea
also netted Mr. Peck quite a few
This was the Grid-Graph, the only
visual means of depicting a distant
football game. The first Grid-Graphs
were large oval boards with lights
depicting the progress of the game.
For years, the Alumni Association of
Michigan owned and operated one
of these devices, using Hill Audi-
torium as the place of exhibition.
Several years ago, it was, quite the
thing to do of a dull fall afternoon
while the team was out of town,'to
go down and see the Grid-Graph,
connected by wire with the distant
Pressbox, put on the game.
Now Michigan has a new Grid-
Graph. It is larger and finer than
the old one and a good deal easier
to see. The Union Ballroom is the
present location of the device where
those present at the Freshman Ban-
quet tonight will see it demonstrated.
The campus premiere of the board
will present the-ten plays which led,
up to Michigan's winning field goal
against Minnesota last year, a score
which clinched the Conference and
National championships for the Wol-
Fischer Cards A 31 On
Last Nine Of 'U' Course
The answer to a golfer's prayer
-,that's what Johnny Fischer,
Michigan's famous golf captain,
had yesterday afternoon on the
last nine ,of the University course.
Playing undoubtedly the best
golf ever seen in Ann Arbor-
Johnny banged out a 31-five
under par-and missed a 30' by a
scant inch.
Playing with Dayton, Sweet, and
Van Zile, the Wolverine captain
achieved the unbelievable by card-
ing four pars and five birdies on
the tough University course.
On the last hole, a par 5, he
put his second shot 7 feet from
the pin. His putt rimmed the hole
and he barely missed a 30.
His card read: 4-4-3-3-3-3-4-

were the only ends Kipke used.
The big question mark still hangs
over the quarterback problem, with
Fay and Renner, obviously on the
inside track. They alternated at the
post in yesterday's drill. Heston,
Everhardus, and Regeczi were at
their usual posts. Tony Dauksza,

Varsity grid practice yesterday afternoon for the first time in four
days. Chuck had his teammates worried when he suffered a recurrence
of a leg infection which occurred last summer. His condition was not

mage in the stadium.

Oosterbaan, Friedman Named
On All-Star Team Of Decade

Echoes of the past come back to
haunt those football enthusiasts whoj
have followed the various fortunes
and misfortunes of Michigan football
teams of the past decade with the
naming of Benny Oosterbaan and
Benny Friedman to a mythical All-
American elevenĀ° of the last ten
years. Grantland Rice, one of the
foremost sports authorities in the
world, named the two Michigan grid-
men to the team which he selected
for a recent issue of the college mag-
azine "University."
Benny-toBenny. What a combi-
nation! 80,000 frenzied spectators
come to their feet as the quarterback
fades backward from the line of
scrimmage and shoots a long forward
pass far over the heads of the ene-
my's linemen. A tall figure leaps out
of a maze of would-be intercepters,
grabs the pass with one hand, and
once again the Benny-to-Benny
combination scores.
Oosterbaan and
Fr i edm an are..
probably the fore- l
most exponents of
the Michigan pass .
system. Friedman,
passer par - excel-
lent. Oosterbaan, . ..
one of the greatest
pass receivers that:
football has ever;
As Grant 1 a n d
Rice writes in ex- Oosterbaan
planation of his
selections, "The two greatest ends I
saw play in this period (1923-1932)
were Benny Oosterbaan of Michigan
and Wesley Fesler of Ohio State.
Dalrymple of Tulane was an out-
standing star, not far behind. But
Oosterbaan and Fesler would make
one of the strongest end combina-
tions that ever played in football.
"Benny Friedman wins the place
at quarterback, over such strong
competition as Stuhldreher and Ca-
rideo of Notre Dame, Dodd of Ten-
nessee and Shaver of Southern Cali-

fornia. In my opinion Friedman is
one of the greatest quarterbacks
that ever played. A marvelous field
general, a fine kicker, a good running
back, a high class blocker, an all-
around defense star. In addition to
this I think he was the most accurate
forward passer I have ever seen in
college football. Stuhldreher and
Carideo were both outstanding and
only a Friedman could beat them
What more coula a coach ask than
a quarterback with the qualities
which Rice attributes to Friedman?
Oosterbaan was not only'a great re-
ceiver of passes but equally great as
a defensive end. Proof of this can
easily be found in the records of
Michigan football:
In 1924 Red Grange and company
of Illinois rap wild against Michigan
handing the Wolverines one of their
worst defeats in history. Grange
scored repeatedly through the Michi-
gan line, mainly around the ends.
The following year the two teams
met again and Grange was still the
"Galloping Ghost." Oosterbaan was
a sophomore end, but during the en-
tire game, Grange gained a total of
three yards around his end. Ooster-
baan stopped Grange that afternoon
and Friedman won the game for
Michigan with a field goal, the only
scores of the game.
Rice's complete ten year All-Amer-
ican follows: Center-Ticknor, Har-
vard; Guards-Cannon, Notre Dame
and Hickman, Tennessee; Tackles-
Smith, Southern California and Mil-
stead, Yale; Ends - Oosterbaan,
Michigan and Fesler, Ohio State;
Quarterback - Friedman, Michigan;
Halfbacks - Grange, Illinois and
Drury, Southern California; Fullback
- Nevers, Stanford.

Is your professor a tennis star?
You may not know it but many hide
their light under an academic bushel.
The departments of Sociology, Med-
icine, History and Journalism all
have their claimants to athletic'
fame. Look them over today-they're
Leading the list is Prof. Bob An-
gell of the Sociology department. A
few others are Dr. J. M. Dorsey, Uni-
versity Hospital; Prof. Arthur Boak,
History department, and Mr. Donal
Haines of the Journalism depart-
ment. All were prominent in summer
session tennis activities.
Bob Angell, perhaps, wields the
wickedest racquet of them all. Out
of a field of some 100 netters in the

All-City tournament last July, he
easily ran through several opponents
to reach the finals in that . event.
Steve Lewis, defending champion
and number four man of Detroit
was his waterloo, however, but only
after a spectacular battle which kept
the crowd on its feet.
Angell is a former Wolverine var-
sity star of no mean reputation. Ten-
nis is still his favorite sport.
Dr. Dorsey and Prof. Boak paired
in the men's doubles with no little
success. They also turned back a
number of opponents to reach the
final round. Cris Mack and Lewis,
however, won the youth-against-age
battle without much difficulty.
Mr. Haines was umpire.
