Varsity Gridders Given Rest As Reserves




Injured Hand
May Keep Ellis
Out OfLineup
Maikowski, Smithers, And
Ritchie Star For Frosh
In Scrimmage
"Mangled Michigan" resumed its
daily grid schedule yesterday as the
Varsity gridders who started against
Minnesota Saturday were given the
day to themselves while the reserves
and others who did not get into the
Gopher game went through a lengthy
scrimmage against a freshman squad.
Physical manifestations of the bat-
tering which the Gophers strength-
ened by fresh replacements, adminis-
tered to Michigan in the second half
of the game were apparent, but
Trainer Ray Roberts reported that
with the possible exception of Joe
Ellis, all would be available to meet
Wisconsin next Saturday.
Coach Harry Kipke's only comment
on the Minnesota game was to the
effect that any attempt to understate
the power of the Gopher team is mis-
placed, but that he could not be dis-
appointed with the Wolverine show-
ing in the first half.
Work On Pass Defense
The program for the week, accord-
ing to Kipke, will not only be a con-
tinuance of the quest for a scoring
punch, but will also include work on
a pass defense, the Badgers "being
inclined to throw 'em," according to
the Michigan coach.
The Wolverine Varsity which start-
ed against Minnesota reported on
South Ferry Field to Director Field-
ing Yost, who showed those who were
present variations of traditional
Michigan trick plays.
Ellis, who received two fractures
in his hand, Chet Beard, who received
bad bruises on the legs, and Jerry
Ford were not in uniform, although
the latter reported no injuries. Cap-
tain Tom Austin and Bill Borgmann,
whose retirement from Saturday's
presaged the complete collapse of the
Wolverine defense, both reported for
practice, and neither's injuries were
said to be serious.
On Ferry Field Coaches Ray Fish-
er and Ray Courtright, assisted by
Coaches Savage, Petoskey, Wistert,
Heston and Keen, sent a freshman
squad against the remainder of the
Varsity squad, coached by Coaches
Cappon, Oosterbaan and Weber.
Plenty Of Scoring
Although the reserves, with the
running of Russ Oliver featured, piled
up a huge advantage over the yearl-
ing team, the showing of several
freshmen was highly gratifying to the
Wolverine prospects for next year.
Outstanding for the freshmen was
the plunging of Frank Dutowski, of
Flint, and the passing of John Smith-~
ers, of Elkhart, Ind., and of Stark
Ritchie, Battle Creek, the heaves of
both being especially effective.

Gophers Turn On Power To Swamp Michigan, 34-0

The young man shown leaping high in the air while he registers surprise and glee is Maurice Johnson,

pass from Capt. Francis (Pug) Lund, paving the way for the first of Minnesota's numerous touchdowns in
the 34-0 defeat of Michigan. Johnson was not stopped until he had reached the Wolverines' 21-yard line

Bill Bevan, Gopher guard and
sure-fire candidate for this year's
All-American, said after the game
that he had never spent such a
30 minutes in his life as that first
half had been.
The Northmen, Bevan said, didn't
quite realize what was happening to
their running attack until Bernie
Bierman explained it between the
halves, and instructed Lund to try
some passes, even though his right
hand was heavily bandaged.
It took only Lund's first long
pass to Johnson to make Ford
and Sweet back up and from then
on 'the fresh Gophers reserves
opened holes at will in Michigan's
line. Even a traditionally dumb
Minnesota team may have a
smart coach.

Contracts - No Results
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 5 -(')- Dizzy
Dean and his brother, Paul, heroes
of the Cardinals' World Series vic-
tory over the Detroit Tigers, talked
to Sam Breadon today about 1935
contracts, but the short conference
ended without result.
The pitching brothers, who slipped
into town yesterday, met the Cardin-'
al president shortly noon. Their meet-
ing was cut short by a meeting of
club officials.
"We're tired and going to start for
our home in Florida," Dizzy an-
nounced earlier.
"We feel fine, though," Dizzy add-
ed. "No, Paul ain't got no sore arm."
How do I like being an actor? Not
so bad, but I think I'll stick to my
