Guard First and Third In Detroit Infield



REMINISCENCES of 20 football sea-
sons: .
Havng lived within earshot of Ferry
Field and the New Stadium during
exactly twenty football seasons and
having seen a game or two every year
since I was five years old, I feel qual-
ified to make some comments;
Back when Yost's teams were play-
ing at Ferry Field and I was knee-
high to a grasshopper, the kids in the
neighborhood went to the games en
masse - all climbing the fence to-
gether and sprinting for the safety of
the crowd. The Devil really took the
hindmost in those days and I ruined
many a trouser seat on the barbed
wire along the top of the Ferry Field
A few years brought increased
cunning and we learned that it
saved trousers to get acquainted
with a gate-keeper to walk past.
It used to be my duty to find out
what color the tickets were for
each game and get slips of tinted
paper to match.
Last year I saw a couple of urchins
scaling a fence out at the stadium and
my heart certainly went out to them.
THE THIRD STAGE was to join the
local Boy Scouts and thus get thel
opportunity to usher at the games.
What a thrill I got when, leaving a
basketball game -one evening, Yost
patted me and another Scout com-
panion on the shoulder, and asked
how we hadtliked the game. It'slittle
things like that -
My most exciting game was one I
didn't see. I had achieved the dignity
of a senior in high school and hadn't
figured out a way to get into games
without paying and still maintain
grandeur, so I sat at home that after-
noon four seasons ago when Michigan
played Purdue. I could hear the cheer-

ing over the radio first and the next
instant hear the cheer direct from the
Believe me there wasn't much to
cheer about for a while though.
Those Boilermakers went to work
and scored two touchdowns and
made one conversion before I
could get comfortably settled on
the davenport. Thirteen to noth-
ing looked darn big.
You all know how it ended. Harry
Newman started on the All-American
road that afternoon when he quarter-
backed Michigan to two touchdowns
and two conversions before the half
was over and held that two-point lead
through 30 minutes of bitter battling
in the second half.
IT WAS WHILE working with
Al Newman in the pressbox at
the Ohio State game last year
that I received the greatest thrill
of my football-spectatoring ca-
reer. It was a wonderful game, but
my thrill camne between the
Typewriters clicked incessantly
in the pressbox at my back as
the Wolverine and Buckeye bands
marched and countermarched on
the white-striped field. Suddenly
the Michigan band's quick-step
slowed to a funeral pace. They
spread and slowly the parallel
lines broke uptto form the single
word, "Steve." They stopped and
as a single trumpeter sounded the
first notes of " Taps" all sounds{
'in the press box ceased. Writers
sat silent with their fingers on
typewriter keys, telegraphers
stilled the clatter of their instru-
ments. The notes of the bugle
call died away and again all clat-
ter and confusion. Michigan had
paid her last tribute to Steve Far-



Hank Greenberg and Marvin Owen, playing on opposite sides of the
diamond, have been invaluable cogs in the great infield of the champion
Tiger team this season. Owen's fielding at third has been sensational
and his hitting timely, while Greenberg's long range slugging has won
more than a few ball games for the Bengals.

Carl Savage Girds Freshmen
For Annual Tilt With Varsity

The freshman gridders, under'the.
tutelage of Carl Savage, are ready
for their secret tangle with the Var-
sity squad at the stadium this after-
noon. They are as ready as five days
of practice on the Notre Dame shift
can make them, which will not be a
great degree of readiness.
The freshmen have been drilling
two elevens all week on Michigan
State plays which are run from the
Notre Dame shift, and the frosh will
use them today to help prepare the
Varsity for the opening game with
Michigan State next Saturday.
Varsity Beat Them
Last year when Michigan supposed-{
ly had one of its best freshman squads
in years, the Varsity overwhelmed
them on the first Saturday of the
school year.
But last year's Varsity was unde-
feated through a hard schedule while
the calibre of this year's team is un-
known. However, the freshmen are
in for a drubbing.
, The eleven freshmen picked to
start today , are: Eveleth, Corunna,
Mich., and Fowdy, Chicago, Ill., ends;
All freshmen who are engaging
in this afternoon's football scrim-
mage are to be dressed by 2:30 p.
m., according to Coach Ray Fisher
of the freshman squad.

Because the first year men have
only been, out for a week and the

coaches haven't been able to get a
true line on their merit, most of theC
boys were selected on a basis of size.
This year's squad seems to be lighter
than previous freshman teams, and
despite the herding together of the
biggest boys, it is doubtful if the
frosh line.will average 185 pounds.
Dutkowski, fullback, is the heaviest
of the freshman backs, weighing 190
pounds. Babbin tips the scales at 165,
while Cooper and Nickerson weigh
around the 175 mark. The regular
Varsity line averages 206 pounds. j
The reason for the secretiveness of
today's session is not apparent, unless
the moguls are afraid lest the crowd
will make the freshmen nervous.
Announce Date For
First Boxing Bouts
Preliminary bouts "for the annual
Golden Gloves tournament will be
held on Oct. 10 at the Ann Arbor Ar-
mory. Boxers from this city, Ypsilanti,
Detroit, and Battle Creek will meet
on a twelve bout card.
Two University men will fight that
night. Lee Shaw, very promising wel-
terweight, is one, and Wally Gager is
the other. Lee has won several tour-
naments, among them the Michigan
State A.A.U. tournament. He is con-
sidered one of the best boxers ever
to have come here. Wally Gager is
also considered a good boxer but
lacks experience. By the time the
Golden Gloves Tournament is held, he
should be quite a menace to the other

I-M Department
To Sponsor All
Campus Golfing
The openng of the All Campus golf
tournament, postponed from yester-
day, is scheduled for this morning.,
The tournament, consisting of sev-
enty-two holes of medal play, is open
to all undergraduates who are scho-
lastically eligible and to members
of the Varsity and Freshman golf
The starting time of the tourna-
ment is set for 8:30 a.m. and all
contestants must tee off before 10 a.m.
Each contestant must finish 36 holes
on Saturday, according to a state-
ment by Coach Thomas C. Trueblood.
The players qualifying in the first
sixteen will play 18 holes Friday and
the remaining 18 on Saturday. Johnny
Fischer, one of the favored players
and four-time holder of the title, will
not compete, it was learned today.
Another announcement that will be
of interest to golf fans is that the
University course will remain open as
long as the weather permits - closing
probably, about the first of November.
AI.- - . - it

James Kingsley of New Trier, Illi-
nois, Sandy Farrell of Grand Rapitis
and Harold Stein of Monroe are the
best of the pole vaulters and before
the year is over may surpass records
made during the season by Varsity
vaulters. All three have cleared 12
feet already.
Another trio of men on the squad
who seem headed for the Varsity are
John Townsend of Indianapolis, Herb
Cohen of Brooklyn, New York, and
William Balter from Connecticut. All
are shot putters -and are all able to
push the pellet past the 40-foot mark.
Howard Brott of Lockport, New York,
is the best of the high jumpers.
It is expected that more freshmen
will report to Coach Doherty this
week. Twenty-five first year men are
drilling on the cross country squad in
preparation for their four meets.

In ten days the price against the
Cardinals has gone from 6 to 1 to
even money, according to the figures
of Jack Doyle last night. Bettors
who had obtained the best price
against the Giants in the spring start-
ed to sedge last week, taking the long
price against the Cardinals, and were
partially responsible for the sudden
drop in odds. The spurt of the St.
Louis team brought the figures down
the rest of the way.
