Star Tackle In Minnesota's Forward Wall



Willis Ward Back At End;
Possibility Of Renner's
. Playing Still Doubtful
"Beat Minnesota" is the battle cry
that will reso'nd down at Ferry Field
for the entire week. The Wolverine
gridders are exhibiting more pep and
spirit than they have shown for any
game this year. If they can topple
Minnesota Saturday, the season would
be more than successful and the play-
ers are out to win.
At yesterday's practice session.
Coach Oosterbaan gave the team the
first real taste of what they can ex-
pect when they hit Bernie Bierman's
boys. Several Minnesota plays were
gone over and a suitable defense
is being worked out,
Minnesota comes out of their huddle
with the center over the ball and the
remaining linemen dividing into two
groups of three facing each other
about half a yard behind the point
of scrimmage. Then at the same time
as the backfield jumps into position,
the linemen take their place and the
ball is snapped about three seconds
later. The line is thus almost con-
stantly in motion and it lends mo-
mentum to the charging forwards.
Ward At End
Indications point to the fact that
Willis Ward will be back at his old
end post Saturday. Not only would this
move give the backfield another con-
sistently running back, but the re-
serve strength at the extremes of the
line would be greatly augmented. The
play of the ends was especially com-
mendable in the Illinois game, and if
these same men can square the cor-
ners on the Minnesota outfit the
chances of the Wolverines are consid-
erably brighter. Power plays are
massed between end and tackle and
with the famed laterals that they em-
ploy, Ward, Pattanelli, and Savage are
in for a busy day.
Whitey Aug will in all probability
be thetreplacement in the backfield.
Regezi did most ofthe ball carrying
in last week's game and this no doubt
weakened his kicking. With Aug,
Sweet, and Regeczi toting the ball the
attack will be more diversified.
Renner On Sidelines
Bill Renner spent part of the after-
noon on the sidelines where in uni-
form he threw passes all over the
Field House. Bill is pretty definitely
out of the Minnesota picture and his
status in regard. to the remainder of
the games on the schedule is still very
much uncertain.
Regeczi spent the early part of the
afternoon placing his kicks. He is im-.
proving with each game as confidence
in the line grows and no doubt will
hit his best stride in this, the high
point of the season.
With cold weather drawing on now
Kipke has the squad adjourned to the
Field House after about half the prac-
tice session is over. The outdoor drill
usually 'consists of fundamenta~s,
blocking and tackling. Cappon keeps
the second string men outside where
they also receive inside dope on the
Bierman system.
MADISON, Wis., Oct. 30 - () -
Coach Doc Spears plans to use prac-
tically the same team against North-
western as he did against Notre
Dame last week.

SINCE STAR DUST'S campaign to
bring the Big Ten Outdoor Track
Meet to Ann Arbor next spring is ap-
parently moving toward realization, I
thought it was about time to start an-
other crusade and decided, offhand,
that we would get Ticket Manager
Harry Tillotson to seat all the stu-
dents together at football games. On
second thought, however, we think
that Tilly's present policy is best.
An apparently good and sufficient
reason for placing all the student
body together is the increase of spirit
which would almost certainly result.
We conceived a mammoth cheering
section made up of 8,000 students in-
stead of the present group of 1,200,
and of the cheers that such a group
could produce.
Tha't was the argument we
presented to Mr. Tillotson yes-
terday and he nodded in affable
agreement while we were speak-
ing. He thought the plan was
very good, and he approved of it,
but - and he spent a half hour
showing us why it wouldn't work
and pointing out the myriad
facts he has to consider in mak-
ing seat allotments to big games.
He used as an example the Ohio
State game of last year, which was
witnessed by 93,508 unofficial spec-
tators. With the stadium filled to
capacity 10,160 people are accommo-
dated in the six sections, three on
each side of the field, between the 30
yard lines.
Most of these choice seats are dis-
posed of before the ordinary reserved
seat purchaser has a chance. At the
Ohio State game 184 seats in the
stands were alloted to newspapers
sending representatives for the ac-
commodation of the wives and sweet-
hearts of scribes.
In addition to these, 389 tickets
were given to special guests of 'the
University. Members of the "M"
Club received 332, and 5,590
tickets were sold to Stadium bond.
holders whose requests for a cer-
tain number of tickets have
precedence over the general pub-
BY NOW it is evident that anyone
who gets into those six charmed
sections for a big game has "drag."
But there are still other special
groups. A student cheering section
16 rows wide extends between the 30-
yard lines on the west side of pneu-
monia terrace and seats 1,296.
There is still room left for a!
number of fans from the visit-
ing school who are always placed
on the east side in seats north of
the 50-yard line. . Two thousand
five hundred such fans can be
accommodarted between the 50
and 30-yard lines. In addition to
all of these, each player on the
first squad receives two tickets
for every year he has been on the
squad, and has the privilege of
buying two more if he chooses.
Imagine Tilly's embarrassment in
trying to put all the students together
with the center sections already fill-
d. , He could do it, as he pointed
cut, by giving 30-yard line tickets to
she seniors and continuing on around
the Wolverines baliwack until all the
freshmen were seated back of the goal
posts. Such a plan would be far more
Simple than the present one under
which students are given seats flank-
ing the center sections on all four
,orners of the Stadium but Tilly
is conscientiously doing his best to
;ive every student a good seat, even
thought it means a lot more work for
him and his staff.'

scouted team uses. He watches how
they look on pass defense and sees
what type plays go for long gains.
The method of blocking is noted
carefully and especially the type of
blocking a team uses for their punter.
Many an important game has been
broken up because the scout noticed a
flaw in the opponent's blocking and a
special play has been devised to take
advantage of this weakness.
Sometimes the scouted team will
show plays that they have no inten-
tion of using against the team which
the scout is working for. In a pre-

Each player on this drilled team
takes the name and number of the
corresponding man on the scouted
team and then uses the formations
against the Varsity. The Varsity reads
the scout reports, practices against
the opponent's formations and by the
time Saturday comes along, has a
pretty good knowledge of what to ex-
pect from the team which is oppos-
ing it on the field.

Drills For Army Game
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Oct. 30 -P)--
For the first time this season specta-
tors were barred from the sidelines
as Coach Bob Zuppke started putting
Illinois in shape for its battle with
Army Saturday.
The regulars were given only light
work, but the reserves scrimmaged
against the Freshmen. The yearlings
were augmented by a pair of reserve
backs, Steve Stieb and Earl Jansen
who imitated Jack Buckler, Army's'
ace back, that they tore through
for numerous gains.

One of the many veterans of Minnesota's bone-crushing forward
wall is Phil Bengston, a tackle who like so many of his teammates weighs
more than 200 pounds. The Gophers' strong line will be sure to cause the
Wolverines as much trouble as their fast, heavy, plunging backs. So
far this year it has cleared away all of the resistance that any opposing
line has been able to offer.

Varsity Quintet,
Of Practice S
Stressing offensive tactics, Coach
"Cappy" Cappon and his Varsity
basketball candidates go into their
third week of fall practice, with Chelso
Tomagno still a strong possibility as
center, Captain Al Plummer remain-
ing at the guard position he has
moved to from forward, and Jack
Powell, a sophomore guard candi-
date from Kalamazoo breaking into3
the first-string group.
Tomagno and Plummer, guard and
forward respectively last year, may
find themselves playing in different
positions on the court this year. Last
spring it was discovered that Tomagno
could out-jump his teammates; and,
since he was also a better ball handler,
he worked well in the position, feed-
ing the incoming forwards or scoring
himself with one of his assortment of'
trick shots.
Plummer has been moved to the
back court because of his ball-han-
dling ability and also to capitalize on
his knack of sinking long toms. Mich-
igan needed a long-tom artist last
year, and Plummer seems to be the
man to supply that need for the
forthcoming season.
