'THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Kipke Has Ward
At Halfback In
Strong Offensive Threat
Seen As End Races For
Hanshue In At Guard
Remias Shows Power At
Full; Triplehorn Again
Each day brings a few changes and
surprises in the football situatior
down at Ferry Field, and yesterday
was the most surprising thus far.
Coach Kipke held his second consecu-
tive secret practice, and trotted out
three surprises during a scrimmage
between the Varsity and a third strinE
Surprise number one was Bud Han-
shue, sophomore, playing left guard
in place of Hildebrand. Surprise num-
ber two was Steve Rernias at the Var-
sity fullback post, and the greatest
surprise of all was Willis Ward in the
role of ball carrier.
Ward who has been Michigan's
track team during the past two years.
and one of the fastest one-hundred-
yard-dash men in the country, was
trading his end position off and on
during the scrimmage for Patanelli's
backfield post and seemed right at
home carrying the ball. He reeled off
three sixty-yard runs for touchdowns,
and the reserves didn't lay a hand
on him. Twice he started around end
on his sixty-yard cruises, and once
he cut back through tackle.
Try And Catch Him!
Once Ward gets around the end
he's gone! Imagine an ordinary foot-
ball player trying to catch afleeting
phantom who does one hundred, yards
in 9.6 seconds!
To get back to surprise number two
Steve Remias is a good blocking back,
a mountain of strength backing up
the line,tand he gave evidence yester-
day of becoming a crashing plunger.
He packed plenty of drive when he
carried the ball.
In the backfield with Remias, were
Russ-Oliver, Matt Patanelli, and How-
ard Triplehorn. The scrimmage was
Willis Ward has lost his sec-
ond gold football award..
The first one was stolen, but this
one has just been misplaced, he
believes., At any rate, he would be
glad if the finder would please
return the emblem, or else he will
have to go out and win another
Big Ten football cdampionship.
wholly an offensive one for the Var-
sity. The regulars threw play after
play at the reserves with remarkable
success. Triplehorn gave further cred-
ence to the lyelief that he will rise to
stardom this fall, by twisting and
sprinting his way through the re-
serves for several long runs. .
The regular line was composed of
Ward and Savage, ends; Viergiver
and Capt. Austin, tackles; Borgmann
and Hanshue, guards; and Jerry Ford,
center. Austin and Borgmann opened
large holes to aid Ward and Triple-
horn in getting started on their runs.
Savage looked impressive at left end.
May Have Strong Offensive
When Ward goes into the backfield,
the line doesn't suffer much, for Pat-
anelli, who until yesterday was fight-
ing it out with Savage for the left end
job, takes his place. It looks like Pat-
anelli will be strictly a blocking back
if he becomes a back at all for he
didn't carry the ball once during the
entire scrimmage. With he and Re-
mias blocking, and Ward, Regeczi,
and Triplehorn to do the ball carry-
ing, Michigan should have a strong
Not Sleeping Much
HOWARD TRIPLEHORN today ranks as the fair-haired bey of the Mich-
igan backfield - and a sweet ball-carrier the slim-hipped Ohio junior is.
With Kipke concentrating on a running attack since the loss of Renner,
Triplehorn is the boy whom he will try to shake loose for touchdowns. He
snaked off tackle for two such goal-line sprints in yesterday's short scrim-
mage against the third team and made numerous other gains of ten yards or
Triplehorn's chief asset is speed and very fast acceleration. lie has
snaky hips but depends more upon a quick sidestep than upon hip-twist
to escape opposing tacklers. He is faster than Everhardus was last year,
but Evie, who was rated the best running back Michigan has had in eight
years or more, had more driving knee action than Trip.
Taller than Trip he raised his knees higher and was, consequently
harder to tackle. I like the way Triplehorn goes at daily practices. When-
ever he's carrying the ball, even if it's just practicing returning punts, he's
sidestepping, feinting, running hard all the time.
CAN'T HELP COMPARING him with another fine ball-carrier I saw last
year -- Dick Lutz of University of Detroit. Lutz has about the most perfect
form I ever saw in an open field. He runs effortlessly, carrying his 185 pounds
behind a powerful straight arm. Lutz is a more finished performer than
Triplehorn. He literally runs into a tackler's arms then seems to float out of
reach with a startling burst of speed. He swings his entire body at an angle
that would cause other runners to stumble.
* * * * * *
Lutz' change of pace is beautful to watch and it is something that
Triplehorn hasn't developed yet. Triplehorn does excell Lutz, I think,
in picking holes and getting into the open. Lutz seldom carries the ball
off tackle. Trip seems to excell in this respect, picking his holes carefully
and driving through at top speed.
Triplehorn does not yet follow his interference closely enough. Per-
haps it is because of his speed, perhaps he just needs more practice,
whatever the reason, he is usually alone when he does get into the open.
* * * * * *
Triplehorn is not as careful a ball-handler as he will have to be to fit
into Kipke's lateral passing attack this fall. He carries the ball rather care-
lessly in the crook of his arm getting more drive out of swinging the arm
instead of hugging the ball close to his jersey.

More adverse publicity for the football manager. For the second
consecutive day Red (Apple) Duffy failed to provide apples for the

The rifle shooting contest conduct-

Eleven fast and heavy freshman
football candidates will on Saturday
afternoon learn what it is to start
against the defending grid champions
of the Western Conference when the
yearling squad takes on Harry Kipke's
Varsity in a closed practice session
at Ferry Field.
A squad of more than 100 men has
reported to the freshman mentors

before their first scrimmage it is un-

aspirants have been taking advan-
tage of the warm weather and under
the tutelage of Coach Charlie Hoyt
and freshman Coach Ken Doherty,
have been ironing out the kinks in
a great many stiff legs. A full squad
of sixty men has reported.
Most every important point win-
ner from among last year's Varsity
has returned in addition to all fresh-
man numeral winners and other try-
outs. Coach Hoyt has decided=that
from four to six weeks of outdoor
practice will be advantageous to the
squad before it turns to the indoor
track at Ferry Field.
Since cross-country as a Varsity
sport hascbeen discarded, both coach-
es can devote their entire attention
to the makings of a track aggrega-
tion that has the greatest opportun-
ity of an\Wolverine team in recent
years-that is a trip to the West
coast during Easter vacation and a
chance at the University, of California
at Berkeley. Every candidate will
devote a great deal of energy in an
attempt to secure a permanent spot
on the squad.
Those men who earned letters last
year and who are back include Cap-
miler, Willis Ward, broad-jumper,
high-jumper, dash man, and hurdler,
Neree Alix and Rod Howell, two-
milers, Moreau Hunt, hurdlers, Tony
Serakos, Dick Ellerby, and Harvey
