by Minnesota. Bob Hogan and Mike
Sebastia are gone from the back-
field and Skladany All-America end
has played his last game for Pitt.
A glimmer of light appears in the
clouds. Weinstock, Weisenbaugh and
Captain Hartwig will be back, and
if some capable reserves can be found
Pitt may give Princeton a run for
its laurels.
Gar Davison's second year at the
United States Military Academy will
not be as enjoyable as was his first
year. Eight regulars were lost by
graduation from the team that came
within one point of having an un-
beaten season and most of the plebe
stars who were expected to fill this
gap were flunked out. Jack Buckler
is back and perhaps with the help
of Stancock, Nazarro and Grove in
the backfield and Stillmann Beall
and Vincent in the line another win-
ning combination will be fashioned.
Tough work ahead for the Cadets.
Down on the Banks of the Severn
the Midshipmen think that for the
first time in a long while their team
has a very good chance to beat the
Army. Rip Miller has been succeeded
by Tom Hamilton as head coach, and
with such men as Borries, Lambert
and Captain Dick Burns a good team
can be molded.
Yale, starting under a new coach,
Ducky Pond, is an uncertainty. Cur-
tin, Whitehead and Rankin may
prove to be the nucleus from which
Yale will make her football come-
back. Ivy Williamson, former Michi-
gan captain, is coaching the ends
and, should turn out a better team
than that which lost to both Prince-
ton and Harvard last year.
Harvard, Dartmouth, New York
University, Cornell and Pennsylvania
do not appear better than they were
last year. New coaches at N. Y. U.
and Dartmouth may produce win-
ning teams but Penn and Cornell do
not seem likely to regain their lost
glory. Manhattan under Chick M.
Meehan is heading for the top but
it will be another year before it hits.
C. C. N. Y. is hopeful under Benny
Friedman, while Brown, Holy Cross,
Colgate, Syracuse, Temple and Rutg-
ers may spring surprises and scramble
up the advance dope on the teams,

LAFAYETTE, Ind., Sept. 24 -
Purdue's backfield shift will be a shift
in every sense of the word this fall.
In conferences with Mal Edward,
veteran assistant coach, who collab-
orated with Kizer in coaching the
College All-Stars at Chicago, and
Guy Mackey and Jim Purvis, who
complete the varsity staff, the Boil-
ermaker mentor has been busily
drafting plans for tentative align-
ments of elevens so that no time will
be lost in starting his reconstruction
With only ten major lettermen
available as the nucleus for the 1934
squad that will attempt to maintain
the victory gait established by Purdue
elevens in the past five years, a heavy
burden will rest on last year's re-
serves and incoming sophomores in
attempting to mold a well-knit
Wide-open fights for permanent
assignments are in prospect at both
ends, both guards, one tackle, quar-
terback and fullback, positions vacat-
ed by last year's stars. The selec-
tion of the eventual starters will be
complicated by the fact that in spring
drill there was little to choose between
the aspirants for most of the posts.
Barring injuries, Captain Carl
Heldt, at left tackle; Jim Carter and
Duane Purvis, halfbacks, and Ed.
Skoronski, center-; all proven stars
in their own right, are expected to

be permanent fixtures in the line-
up. In early drills, emphasis is ex-
pected to be laid on development of
a capable defensive forward wall in
view of the fact that Rice Institute,
the opening foe here on October 6,
has prospects for one of the coun-
try's fastfast backfield combinations.
Although Carter will work normally
at the left halfback post and Purvis
at the right halfback berth, through
the use of the "cross-shift," which
can be performed without losing any
of the rhythmical action of the typi-
cal Notre Dame shift, Carter may
appear at left halfback for two plays
and then suddenly move to the right
halfback position, with Purvis going
to left halfback. Upon occasion, it
will also be possible for one or the
other of the two veterans to shift
either into the fullback or quarter-
back position.
All of the shifting is being done
from the regular T formation, with
the backs lining up in the normal
way before each shift. Kizer's new
wrinkle appears to have a number
of possibilities, for it will enable the
quarterback to take advantage of
the full offensive power of either
Carter or Purvis at any point on the
field by simply calling for the cross
The tenpin game is under the NRA

Hockey Board
Prepares For
1934 Schedule
NEW YORK, Sept. 24 -P) - The
National Hockey League today cleared
the ice for the 1934-35 season as the
board of governors, meeting in their
semi-annual session, successfully
ironed out stadium difficulties at Chi-
cago and Boston, adopted a 48-game
schedule, approved of the penalty shot
and reduced the salary limits.
The penalty shot was adopted with-
out much opposition. In use on thet
Pacific Coast, the rule gives the at-
tacking team a free shot 38 feet from
the net whenever a player is fouled.
while shooting what the referee con-
siders a "sure shot." The shot will
be made from a circle, 10 feet in;
diameter, by any player not in the
penalty box.
The player making the shot may do
so either from a stationary position
or from a running start.

Tom Sawyer
Try-outs Are
To Continue
Children's Theatre try-outs will
continue through the first part of the
week, according to Russell McCrack-
en, director. Applicants, either uni-
versity students or children from the
Ann Arbor public schools are ask-
ed to report to the Undergraduate
offices some time after 3:30 p. m.
The play for which the trials are
being conducted is Mark Twain's fa-
mous story, "The Adventures of Tom
Sawyer." Both McCracken, and Sue
Calcutt, '35, student head of the Chil-
dren's Theatre, will be at the office
to talk to newcomers this week.
The plays, which are given in the
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, are a
part of the Undergraduate project,
but the students working for that
co-operate with Play Production and
the Ann Arbor Schools. Most of the
production work is done by students,
both men and women, giving them an
opportunity to work at the type of
thing that they plan to do when they
get out of school.

Coach Ray Fisher will d
equipment to freshman
candidates after 1:30 p.n d
in Yost Field House.
