Pass Defense For Fourth
Successive Day

Ward Exhibits Excellent
Form In Defensive Drill
Against Passes
The Wolverines will wake up some
night and find themselves intercept-
ing Illinois' passes in their sleep, al-
though it would be more to their
advantage if they woke up Saturday*
afternoon. For the fourth consecu-
tive time, yesterday's practice consist-
ed mainly of pass defense against
a reserve eleven using Illinois pass-
ing plays, with Russ Oliver throwing
the passes.
The Varsity performed better than
it has all week, permitting few com-
pleted passes, which elicited some
favorable comment from Coach Har-
ry Kipke. He said "They're improv-
ing every day." The most efficient
secondary combination against the
imitated Illinois plays, was that of
Ford, Regeczi, Ward, Ellis, and Aug.
Perfect Bandage
Cedric Sweet, regular fullback, was
on the sidelines during part of the
drill. He incurred an injury to the
little finger of his right hand, while
catching a pass, causing swelling and
stiffness to set in. However, Doc
Lynam and Trainer Ray Roberts dug
into their bag of tricks and perfected
a binding for the injured finger,
which theysay will enable him to play
tomorrow without any less effective-
ness, if further complications don't
Another regular 'who took things
easy was Ferris Jennings, midget
quarterback, who took part in the de-
fensive drill for only a short time.
Hildebrand was back in uniform,
after a two-days' rest, and took a light
Ward At Halfback Post
It became well-nigh certain yester-
day, that Willis Ward will start the
Illinois game as a halfback. The
colored star, playing a position at
which he's had little experience, dis-
played excellent defensive tactics
against the reserve's aerial attack.
Ward fits snugly into the position of
defensive half against enemy passes.
He is the best pass receiver on the
squad, which makes him equally as
proficient in intercepting passes. With
his speed he has little trouble in cov-
ering the pass receiver who appears
in his zone, and if he doesn't allow
his man to get behind him, Illinois
will not complete many passes on the
left side of the stadium.
Hold Tackling Drill
After the defensive drill, the Var-
sity ran through its plays in dummy
scrimmage against the second team,
and followed it up with a session on
the tackling dummy. The squad ex-
hibited a fine spirit throughout the
afternoon's work. Although the
Michigan boys will enter the game to-
morrow, underdogs, they are far from
being depressed, and with their will
to win and improved play which they
showed yesterday, are likely to up-
set the concensus of opinion by beat-
ing the Illini.
John Regeczi sent some beautiful
spiralling punts soaring 65 yards
down Ferry Field yesterday. Regeczi's
kicking, on the average, this year,
hasn't approached his record of last
year, when he was the best punter
in the Big Ten. In the three games
played, he's averaged only about 38
yards, whereas he averaged 45 and 50
last year. His injured right knee,
which he received earlier in the year,
prevents him from kicking consist-

Captain Tom Austin and "Whitey" Aug of the Michigan Varsity will see a good deal of the two Illini in thisi
picture, Leo Lindberg and Bart Cummings. Lindberg and Jack Reynn are the aces of the Illinois backfield
and unless it rains Saturday they will be throwing plenty of passes. Cummings has a great reason for wanting
to beat the Wolverines in this game. It was he who last year attempted a field goal in the final minutes of[
the Michigan-Illinois game only to see his kick go wide and Michigan win 7-6. Cummings has not played at
all this year because of ineligibility but faculty action this week put him back on the squad. Austin is
expected to start the game at one of the tackle positions(-for Michigan, while it is not yet known whether Aug
will be in the starting backfield or not. If not, he will undoubtedly see service later in the game.

Physical Ed Team
Weak, Says Weber
The Physical Education Football
Squad is not as strong as that which
represented the school last year, is
the opinion of Coach Wally Weber,
who in addition to his regular duties
as Varsity backfield coach has charge
of the Physical Eds.
Valpey, a tall, rangy end who also
will do the team's punting, Schroeder,
a tackle from Oshkosh, Wis., Heer-
ing, who alternates between the guard
and tackle positions and Campbell,
who is the passer, are the boys the
freshman team will have to watch
when the two outfits tangle in the
annual game late in November. While
the strong freshman team won last
year 7-0, the teams appear more
evenly matched this season and it
may be Coach Weber's chance to
lead his team to a victory this year.

Exhibiting the same masterful skill
and precision which won international
recognition for him in a hundred dif-
ferent tournaments, Hoppe did every-
thing from executing seemingly im-
possible trick shots to patiently in-
structing aspiring students in the art,
of billiards.
He played several exhibition games
with prominent Union players, dis-
playing throughout a calm, good na-
turcd air. The crowd which packed
the room was particularly responsive
to Hoppe and was generous with its
applause, revealing a particularly un-
usual understanding of several of the
more difficult shots.
The exhibition was sponsored by the
Union and is a part of the campaign
to foster and promote billiards
throughout the nation.
