Michigan's Varsity football team
went through its last practice of the
year yesterday afternoon, before its
final attempt to redeem Maize and
Blue honor in the Northwestern game
here tomorrow.
A rejuvenated eleven snapped
through drill yesterday, displaying
much more spirit and precision than
has been customary at Ferry Field
recently. A dummy scrimmage be-
tween the Varsity and reserves to
polish off offensive 'tactics, and de-
fense practice against the freshman
eleven, comprised the day's activities.
With Ferris Jennings, regular quar-
terback, taking a rest, George Bolas
was in at the quarterback post. John
Regeczi and Joe Ellis, who appear now
to be sure starters against the Wild-
cats Saturday, were at the halfback
posts, and Steve Remias, who began
the season as a member of the regular
backfield, has returned to fullback.
Whether or not Johnny Viergever
will be in condition to play Saturday
is doubtful. It is understood that
Joe Fisher, reserve tackle on
Michigan's football squad, is out
for the remainder of the grid sea-
son and perhapsforthe track sea-
son also with a broken ankle. The
injury was, sustained in last Mon-
day's scrimmage between the Var-
sity and the freshmen, but not
until yesterday was it learned to be

physicians advise against it. However,
Jerry Ford has fully recovered, and
will be on hand.
The line appeared strong, partic-
ularly on offense in opening up holes
for the backs and was also success-
ful in doping out the plays which
the freshmen, drilled in Northwestern
tactics, sent against them.
Bolas and Ellis, neither of whom
have seen much action in Wolverine
games this fall, were the sparks in
yesterday's offense. Speed and intel-
ligent ball-handling characterized the
work of both. Although the ball was
wet and slippery, there was little
Yost, Aigler Silent
On Charity Contest
Questioned as to their stand to-
wards the proposed post-season char-
ity football game between Ohio State
University and Minnesota, both Field-,
ing H. Yost, director of intercollegiate
athletics, and Prof. Ralph W. Aigler,
chairman of the board in control of
physical education, declined to com-
"I'll not cross that bridge until It
come to it," Professor Aigler de-
clared. He gave the same answer when
questioned as to his attitude toward
a possible Rose Bowl invitation to
Minnesota's Thundering Herd.
Mr. Yost said, "This matter does not
lie within my province. I wouldn't
want to comment on it at all."

(By Associated Press)
One of football's most colorful meetngs will be renewed Saturday when Lieutenant Gar Davidson's Army
team will play Elmer Layden's Fighting Irish from Notre Dame at the Yankee Stadium, New York.
Last year the South Bend eleven perpetrated one of the biggest upsets of the year by beating the Cadets
13-12. This year's game promises to be just as closely fought and the Army is especially anxious to atone for
last year's defeat. Jack Buckler and Joe Stancook are the big guns of the Cadet attack. Buckler was
mentioned on several All-American teams last year while Stancook has proved himself an inspiring leader.
Captain Dom Vairo has played a consistently good end all season for the Irish and Fullback Don Esler
is noted for his hard running.


Ten Bouts To





THE COMPETITION in the Big sible repetition of last year's thriller

Unless Michigan and Northwestern
put on a "knock-'em-down-and-drag

the Chicago-Illinois game should be
the best in the Big Ten. Illinois is
given an 8 to 3 majority over the
Maroons but if the latter have Ber-
wanger and Bartlett ready to go there
may be an upset.
Fans in Columbus are still sore
because the Buckeyes didn't win
over Michigan by 50 points last
Saturday and the team will prob-
ably try to run up -the count on
lowly Iowa.

Masked Billiard Marvel
Exhibits Skill At Uion
Billiard fans received a treat last
night when Mr. Q., the "Mystic of
Billiards," appeared at the Michigan
Union. Mr. Q., who has beaten most
of the better players of the United
States, was opposed by Prof. Harry
C. Carver of the Mathematics De-
The Mystery Man, who wore a
black mask, defeated his opponent,
100 to 60, and then proceeded to
demonstrate some extremely difficult
shots. He kept the crowd of more
than a hundred onlookers in suspense
as he clicked off shot after shot with
admirable dexterity.
The exhibition was sponsored by
the National Billiard Association of
America as part of a "Better Bil-
liards' campaign.
