25 Wolverines Awarded Football Letters;


Major Awards
Are Given To
10 Sophomores
Four Juniors, 11 Seniors
Included Among List Of
Letter Awards
Twenty-five members of the Wolv-
erine football squad, who completed
their season, the poorest in Michigan's
history, against Northwestern last
Saturday, were awarded major letters,
according to the official announce-
ment released yesterday by Coach
Harry Kipke and approved by the
Board in Control of Athletics.
Ten sophomores, four juniors, and
eleven seniors were listed among those
receiving "M's."
Twenty-five members of last year's
national championship football squad
who completed their season, one of
the best in Michigan's history,
against Northwestern, were awarded
letters by Coach Kipke.
Twelve seniors, twelve juniors, but
only one sophomore were included in
the list of letter recipients.
Sophomore Awards Tell Tale
In the number of sophomore
awards lies the difference between
the poorest and best seasons of Wolv-
erine grid history. Last year, Kipke's
material was of such excellent calibre
that only one sophomore, Mike Sav-
age, broke into the lineup with suf-
ficient regularity, to earn a letter.
This year, Kipke depending upon
his junior letter winners of last year,
who had gained only little experience,
was forced to use 10 sophomores, of
only mediocre ability.
These ten sophomores,however,
gained more experience this year,
than their junior brethren did the
previous year, and will form a better
nucleus for Michigan's 1935 eleven.
Six Three-Letter Winners
Of the letter-winners, Gerald Ford,
Russ Fuog, Willard Hildebrand, Russ
Oliver, John Regeczi, and Willis Ward
received their football award for the
third season, falling from the obliv-
ion of Western Conference title-
holders in 1932, and 1933, to the
depths of cellar occupants this year.
Following is the list of men who
were awarded letters: seniors, Capt.
Tom Austin, Chester Beard, William
Borgmann, Gerald Ford, Russell Fuog,
Willard Hildebrand, Tage Jacobson,
Russell Oliver, John Regeczi, Howard
Triplehorn, Willis Ward. Juniors,
George Bolas, Steve Remias, Mike
Savage, John Viergever. Sophomores
Robert Amrine, Vincent Aug, Frank
