Courtmen Meet
Calvin College
Tall Varsity Team Ekes
Out 19 To 18 Win Over
Reserves In Practice
With only two more days to pre-
pare for the opening game, Coach
Cappon was pushing his basketball
squad hard yesterday afternoon, put-
ting the players through a two-hour
It is not probable that Calvin Col-
lege Knights will offer too much
competition, but Western State is
sure to put a strong quintet on the
floor in the season's second game
andthe Wolverines have to be ready
for them, too.
The first team, composed of Capt.
Al Plummer, Dick Evans, John Gee,
Dick Joslin, John Jablonski, and
Gerald Ford, scrimmaged yesterday
against the second five: Jack Powell,
Jack Teitelbaum, Chelso Tomagno,
George Rudness, and "Hi" Hill. So
far this season the second squad has
been outscoring the first reguarly,
and yesterday afternoon's practice
showed some of the reasons why this
has happened.
Second Team Faster
Despite the difference in height,
the second team was keeping posses-
sion of the ball and taking most of
the shots. They were alive and took
all of the loose balls as well as taking
the ball off the backboard. The first
teamwas slow and handled the ball
sloppily. They could not seem to
move as a team, but only as individ-
The second team held the lead
most of the scrimmage. However,
after trailing 18 to 8, the Varsity
started clicking and when the scrim-
mage ended was leading 19 to 18.
Rudness, despite his size, was receiv-
ing the ball and scoring most of the
points. He was the only man who
could hit fouls with any regularity.
Out of thirty-three fouls attempted
by both teams, only nine were good.
The seconds made six of the nine that
went through the netting.
Sink the Short Shots
The Varsity quintet, because of its
superior height, made most of its
points on short shots. Most of the
eleveiq points that they scored in their
final rush were of this type.
In the remaining part of the prac-
tice Cappon held to the plan that he
has followed -this year of maintain-
ing two distincts fives, of practically
the equal ability, the personnels of
which do not change. The result of
this should be two well-trained teams,
outstanding for their superior team-
work, each of which can be put into
a game at any time and be trusted
to turn in a good performance.
Gerald Ford Chosen
Most Valuable Player
Gerald Ford, center, has been chosen
the most valuable player on the 1934
Michigan football squad by his team-
mates. He will receive the Chicago
Tribune award which such outstand-
ing stars as Harry Newman and Her-
man Everhardus have received before
Ford's selection as Michigan's most
valuable player qualifies him for se-
lection as the most valuable in the
Western Conference. Newman re-
ceived this honor in 1932.
This was Ford's first year as a
regular, the All-America play of
Chuck Bernard keeping him on the
bench during his sophomore and jun-
ior years.
Ford came to Michigan from South
High School of Grand Rapids.

Wisconsin has won nine games,
lost eight, and tied two in her 19
games with Illinois.

Even Mirrors Used
Now In Grid Drills
KANSAS CITY, Nov. 28 - (P) -
Dana X. Bible, of Nebraska, uses signs
as part of his scheme to win football
games, so Lynn Waldorf, of Kansas
State, plans to do it with mirrors.
With the climactic Big Six title
struggle between Bible's Nebraska
Cornhuskers and Waldorf's Kansasf
State Wildcats one day away, Wald-
orf goes one up, at least, on the con-
ference's veteran "idea man" by calm-
ly introducing large mirrors as ad-
juncts to football rehearsal.
Last week it was too muddy to prac-
tice on the home gridiron, so Waldorf
and his men hied themselves away
to the sheltered tanbark arena at
nearby Fort Riley. Those huge mir-
rors before which the Army's crack
riders and school mounts preen them-
selves for championships caught his'
eye. Could they be put to practical
use in football?
The idea crystalized into'something
Bible never thought of before. Wald-,

he says.

rushing this year.

Navy Favored
To Whip Army
Team Saturday,
NEW YORK, Nov. 28 -(A')- It'sf
refreshing to note that Navy, for the
first time since 1921, is not the under-
dog this year in the annual gridiron
service clash with the Army.,
The service teams first clashed way,
back in 1890, with the Midshipmen j
submerging the Soldiers 24 to 0.
They've played 33 times since then
with the Cadets holding a decided
edge of 19 victories to 12 for the Sail-
ors. Three games were tied.
However, the Middies won't be thel
underdogs when the teams line up
on Franklin Field in Philadelphia
Saturday before an anticipated capac-
ity crowd of 80,000.
Today's Games
While the Army-Navy game fea-
tures the "dying swan" week of the
the wildest campaigns in the history
of college football, many teams will
get in their last licks on Thanksgiv-
ing Day.
Topping the program in the East
will be two traditional games. The
