Varsity Prepares For Last Game With Drill In Fundam


Ellis At Half
Will Provide
Passing Threat
Spirit Is Absent As Backs1
And Linemen Practice
With four days of th 1934 grid
season remaining, Coach Kipke yes-
terday sent the Varsity through a drill
strongly resembling early September
practice, with fundamentals the chief
order of the day.
After drilling his squad on blocking,
both for backs and linemen, Kipke
then put the team through an offen-
sive drill-against a reserve team while
a second team worked on defense in
a dummy scrimmage against a year-
ling squad armed with Northwestern
Serious Business
Dashing fire and spirit were con-
spicuously absent from the whole drill,
but a certain grim feeling which was
not evidenced by the usual pep signs
gave an indication that the squad
was in possibly the most serious mood
for any game of the season.
Blocking for both linemen and
backs occupied the attention of the
entire squad as Director Yost worked
with the backs and Coaches Cappon
and Kipke directed an old-fashioned
dummy line scrimmage.
The offensive drill brought Joe Ellis
into the first-string backfield, where
he bore the brunt of the attack with
his passing. The rest of the backfield
lined up with Jennings at quarterback,
Remias at full and Regeczi at half.
Kipke indicated yesterday that that
lineup would undoubtedly comprise
the starting backfield against North-
western unless Chis Everhardus
should be reinstated at a half.
The offensive drill was marked with
a listlessness combined with grim ser-
iousness, but the discouraging effects
of four straight defeats was apparent.
Injuries Numerous
Injuries again appeared to further
set back Wolverine prospects as it was
announced that John Viergever would
possibly not be available for the Wild-
cat game, while Jerry Ford would play
although, not practice during the week.
Willard Hildebrand returned to his
guard position bearing evidences of
frequent bruisings, but gave assurance
that he would start Saturday.
Blue Raiders Upset
By I). D Eleven, 9-7
Bob Kunitz' 65-yard touchdown
run after the interception of a Blue
Raider pass in the first quarter, and
his field goal in the third quarter,
gave the D.D.'s an upset victory, 9-7,
in the semi-finals of the Intramural
touch football tournament yesterday.
The D.D.s will meet the Humpty
Dumpties for the championship at
4:15 .p.m. Thursday, probably at
Ferry Field.
A forward pass, Wolf to Spangen-
berg, in the first quarter, and a suc-
cessful conversion enabled the Blue
Raiders to overcome the lead Kun-
itz' long run had given the D.D.'s, and
to lead at half time, 7-6.I
The Blue Raiders were the Inde-
pendent touch football champions of
last year.
The Humpty Dumpties won their
way to the finals by downing the
Hops, 6-0.
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 20 --')-
Charles H. Knapp, of Baltimore, was
re-elected president of the Interna-
tional League for a two-year term at
a meeting of club owners here today.
He has been League president for the
past five years.

Warren C. Giles, of Rochester, was!
re-elected vice president; William B.
Carpenter, of Cincinnati, was reap-
pointed umpire in chief. William J.
Manley, of New York, retained his
post as secretary and treasurer, his j
term having another year to run.

Stellar End Plays

Last Game For Wolverines


This clipping comes from a two-
week-old issue of the Buffalo News
and needs no comment from us ex-
I cept, perhaps, to point out that Mr. .
Kipke's record of four straight Con-I
ference titles (won or tied for) and
two National Championships is theI
greatest any Big Ten coach, includ-
ing Mr. Yost himself, ever made:


Twelve Michigan Gridders Play
Final Game Against Wildcats

Twelve members of the Michigan
football squad will 'hang up their
cleats Saturday after the game with
Northwestern with the adage "pride
goeth before a fall and a haughty
spirit before destruction?' ringing in
their. ears.
All twelve of these men were on the
championship squads of the last two
years and then watched this year's
team compile the worst. gridiron rec-
ord in Michigan history.
Austin Among Seniors
Captain Tom Austin leads the list
of the gridmen who will be graduated
in June. Austin was a regular on the
National Champions of 1932 and 1933
along with Willis Ward and John Re-
geczi who are also playing their
last game for Michigan Saturday.
Ward has been considered a great
end for three years now, but had the
hard luck to run up against Captain
Ivan Williamson in 1932 and Ted
Petoskey last year in his bid for All-
American honors. This year, however,
he has turned in a sparkling perform-
ance at. the wing position and is
recognized as one of the best ends in
the country.
The Wolverines will miss Regeczi's
punting sorely next year. Many a time
in the last three years he extricated
the team from tight spots by his
adeptness at booting the pigskin and
also convincingly demonstrated the
value of the punt as an offensive
Three Centers to Finish
Three centers will be among the
twelve players graduated. Gerald Ford,
understudy to the great Chuck Ber-
nard for two years, and who proved
himself to be a great center this year,
will not be here in 1935. Russ Fuog,
second string this year and Eli Soo-
dik, the hard luck player of the
squad, will also be among the miss-
Three guards, Willard Hildebrand,
Bill Borgmann, and Chester Beard are
going to leave Coach Kipke scurrying
around for material to replace them.
Hildebrand and Borgmann were the

Maize and Blue regulars this year
while Beard saw a great deal of service
in every game but the one with Wis-
consin during which he was out with
an injury.
Tage Jacobson is the only tackle
besides Capt. Austin who is not ex-
pected to report next season. He has
made a bid for the regular tackle posi-
tion for three years now and like
Beard saw much action this season.
Russ Oliver who is being heralded
as Michigan's next "nine letter man"
and Howard Triplehorn, speedy half-
back round out the list of the men,
who when the gun goes off to end
the game Saturday, will have closed
oAt their college gridiron careers.

The Old Grads Grow Up!
In the days when Fielding H. Yost,
popularly designated "Hurry Up,"'
was creating his point-a-minute grid-
iron elevens at the University of Mich-
igan, the alumni of the Ann Arbor
institution wore smiles which simply'
would not come off. The old master'
no longer directs the football destin-
ies of that great Midwestern power
house and the team has fallen on
evil days in spite of Harry G. Kipke's
best efforts. Since a football coach
is only as strong as his material,
Michigan has been slipping in the Big
Ten conference. But recently the
Minnesota juggernaut overwhelmed
his proteges, an occurrence heart-
rendering to the old grads who were
wont to cheer the boys on.
In spite of defeats, there is no cry
for Harry Kipke's scalp. The ordin-
ary university seeks a new coach
when the eleven undergraduates on
the playing field lack the winning
punch, but not at Michigan. The
old grads have grown up at Ann
Arbor. They do not shoot the piano
player when he is doing the best he
can. The Kipke touch is not that
of the old maestro, Yost, but it is
good enough to satsify both members
of the team and alumni. The former
recognize their own deficiencies, the
latter take refuge in the philosophical
reflection that it is impossible to be
always on the winning side.
Would that the same sweet spirit
of reasonableness would pervade the
atmosphere of other universities. If
such an attitude of sanity were culti-
vated, the coaches, their lives made
miserable by the haunting fear of
failure might perk up and really show
results. At least they would refrain
from lashing their players into a
frenzy to win so that the next year's
contract may be duly signed. The
decent and civilized restraint exer-

enough to lose a single game of an
exceedingly tough schedule.

NEW YORK, Nov. 20 -(P)- Harry'
Newman, star quarterback of the New

hospital today with two fractured
vertebrae and out of football for the
rest of the season.
The former University of Michigan
athlete was injured in Sunday's bruis-

the Chicago Bears of the National

than it did in the 1933 champion-
