NoaMans Land
WELL, I see that they have prac-
tically abolished the longest strip
of territory on a football field. .
that no man's land between the 20-
yard line and the goal line. At least
if they have not abolished it, they
have practically done so with the
new forward pass rule which gives
the offensive team one incomplete
pass over the goal line without loss
of the ball.
That takes the teeth out of the
over-goal line pass, makes the last
few yards much easier for the of-
fensive team and makes things pure
Hades for the defending team. Hith-
erto, the defense could pretty well
plan on running plays or lateral
passes within the danger zone be-
cause most quarterbacks were sim-
ply not ready to take a gamble on
either losing the ball or scoring a
touchdown untl the fourth down.
NEWMAN used to get away with
such things occasionally, but los-
ing the ball inside the enemy 20-yard
line by passing incomplete over the
goal is not popular with the home
crowd and the great quarterback
found that out during his junior
year when the percentages went
against him. He was the only Mich-
igan player whom I have ever seen
booed from the home stands.
This new ruling will not only make
the passing offensive good right up
to the goal line but will also aid the
running game there in that defenses
will have to be spread for the pos-
sibility of an aerial and it will be
impossible to mass all kinds of power
behind the key points in the line.
CONSIDERING the philosophy be-
hind this change, we find that
the National Rules Committee, after
favoring the defense, possibly inad-
vertently, by passing all those safe-
ty anti-crawling rules, has definitely
about-faced and is now endeavoring
to hop up the offense a bit. It will
mean that the Michigan defensive
game will be a bit less effective, al-
though you can pretty well count
on Harry Kipke not to let rule
changes out-mode the style of play
employed here.
The new forward-pass rule is a
definite play for the gate receipts.
The National Rule Committee, in
view of the depression football re-
ceipts is making love to the cash
customers on the theory that defen-
sive football is slow football and dull
to watch. In the case of the aver-
age football fan, they are probably
right, but I rather question whether
it will improve the game from the
scientific aspect.
THEY could do approximately the
same thing by shortening the
field to 50 or 25 yards. Every time
a team got the ball under those cir-
cumstances, it would be a goal-line

Thinclads And
Natators Open
Local Season
Wrestling, Hockey Teams
Also To Meet Opponents
Before Home Audiences
With track, wrestling, hockey and
swimming on the local card for Fri-
day and Saturday, the coming week-
end in Ann Arbor promises to be the
most eventful of the winter season.
After weeks of dull practice, the
track and swimming teams will
swing into their winter schedules.
The hockey team will play its first
home Conference game of the sea-
Starting Friday night, the swim-
ming and hockey teams will go into
action. Matt Mann's natators will
engage in a dual meet against Ohio
State in the Intramural pool. The
Wolverines will attempt to start a
parade towards their fourth Confer-
ence championship.
The hockey team will take on Wis-
consin in a two game series in the
local Coliseum Friday and Saturday
night. Last year Michigan took the
Badgers for a couple of victories, and
they are favored to repeat this week-
Saturday afternoon the wrestlers
will meet Cornell College in an at-
tempted comeback after the Buckeye
defeat Monday night. The meet will
be held in the Intramural building.
Cornell is coached by Dick Barker,
who was Keene's predecessor as
trainer of Wolverine matmen.
Coach Charlie Hoyt's track team
will be the fourth Wolverine squad
to swing into action. Ohio State will
furnish the opposition in the Field
House Saturday night, and they are
expected to be a real test of Michi-
gan's indoor track strength this year.
At the same time the hockey and
track squads are in local contests,
the cagers will be at Coumbus for
a return game with Ohio State.
Michigan defeated the Buckeyes two
weeks ago, but should have a hard
time repeating on the Ohio floor.
Swimming Meets
Dates for the Intercollegiate and
been announced by the Athletic De-'
Intramural 'swimming meets have
partment. After more than a month
of time racing and practice, the so-
rority and independent women will
meet in the All-Campus competition
at the Union Pool.
A week later the Intercollegiate
meet will be held in the same place.
Teams from Wisconsin, Minnesota,
Chicago, Illinois, Ohio State and
other Big Ten and middlewestern
schools will furnish the rivalry,
which will be conducted via tele-
Interclass Badminton
Interclass tournaments are to be
the next feature of the badminton
program. This is the first year that
badminton has assumed such pro-
portions, as it was offered for the
first time only two short seasons ago.
Practices for the tournament will
be held every Monday afternoon in
Barbour Gym, and about mid-sea-
son the elimination series will be-
gin, after class teams have been

880-Yard Time'
Trial Is Won,
By D. Ellerby
Turns In Good Time Of,
2:01.2; Squad In Fine
Shape Despite Layoff
Although two time trials were
scheduled too be run off yesterday at1
the Yost Field House, Coach Charles
Hoyt decided at the last moment to
eliminate the 440 yard run, and held
a time trial in the half mile event
Dick Ellerby surprised Hoyt by fin-
ishing first in the excellent time of
2:01.2. Ellerby stayed in second po-
sition, behind Patton, the pace set-
ter, for most of the race, but on the
last straightaway stretch pulled
ahead to break the tape. Patton fin-
ished a full second behind him. Gor-
man was third with 2:02.5. Kauff-
man was clocked at 2:03.5, and Freese
came in in 2:05.5.
Hoyt expects to be influenced by
1 these times in picking the mates that
will run with Lemen and Smith in
the event for the Ohio State indoor
meet Saturday evening here.
The rest of the week will be spent
in getting the tracksters in top form
for the meet. Examinations and the
consequent lay-off have had their ef-
feet on the physical condition of the
thinclads. Gorman complained yes-
terday that his legs tired on him,
although asserting that his wind was
in good shape.
There will likely be various time
trials throughout the week before the
Buckeyes make their invasion of Yost
Field House. In the meantime Hoyt
still fears the ravages of ineligibility.

The Ohios Dance in Practice;
The Michigans Just Pract

(From The Ohio State Lantern)
Great grief! What does it take to
make a good swimmer?
Your reporter visited Mike Pep-
per's office Thursday evening and
witnessed some very entertaining tap
dancing demonstrations.
Coach Pepper assured him that
this was one of the first exercises the
swimmers were given. "It develops
the rhythm," he explained.
Then he went through his paces
showing the proper steps. Andy Fela
came in to try his step and seemed
to be a very good pupil.
"Who is the best dancer on the

Boyles in tap dancing, Harry Volk in
the Irish jig, and Bill Wilson in the
fan dance."
Doubting his sincerity in the last
remarks the reporter passed to an-
other phase of the training. Each
man is required to swim 500 yards
daily, using a kicking board, which
leaves the locomotion to the kick.
After he has completed this he
puts the rubber tube around his feet
and pulls himself with his arms the
same distance. This is to develop
the correct form.
Each man goes through a pace
drill daily to develop his co-ordina-
tion at the various distances and
An all-around workout is assured
when they go through a water-polo
scrimmage at least twice a week. It
