With the press of midsemester ex-

packed away cleats and padding yes-
terday after a long but light workout
to await the re-opening of school fol-
lowing spring vacation. Attendance
was scanty at the final drill.
It was mostly a freshman outfit
that Harry Kipke had to work with.

Connolly and Howard, two backfield
candidates had to be called to the
wings on the defensive team Kipke
lined up for a light scrimmage.
For about three quarters of an hour
previous to the scrimmage the entire
collection of miscellaneous gridders
cavorted over the field in a touchball
game. The coaching staff hopes that

A squad was chosen afterwards, to
run through new offensive plays. Er-
nie Johnson and George Ghesquire
were at ends, Bob Schroeder and Earle
Luby at tackles, George Marzoni and
Ernest Pederson at guards, Sta
Schuman at center, Harry Pillenger
at quarter, Norm Nickerson at full
back and Johnny Smithers and Star
Ritchie at halves.
Ed Greenwald, who sprained an
ankle early last week, was on the
sidelines and did not take his ac-
customed place at tackle, although he
did take part in the touchball game,

That the freshman material will be
counted upon rather heavily next fall
is no secret. This was further ac-
centuated last night when Coach
Wally Weber was interviewed for in-
formation about the leading candi-
dates for the Chicago Alumni Trophy
for the outstanding freshman of
spring practice. He declined outright
to mention any single man or any
group of men. Rather, he mentioned
almost the whole freshman squad.
This has been, so far, the best
spring practice in his four years here,
he said, because of the number of
wide open positions, and the promis-
ing freshman material pushing the
veterans who have shown up.,
Golfers Begin Practice
On University Course
Among the more than 100 golfers
who celebrated the opening of the
University Golf Course over the week-

The lowest score, however, was
made by John Cameron, a freshman
from Texas who toured the course in
a snappy 73. Sweet and Seeley card-

Fischer did not play a complete round
and turned in no card.

Plaver a Make Event Of N.A.A.U. Swim

COACH Harry Kipke is very much
afraid that his 1935 line will suffer
from the same affliction that render-
^d the 1934 forward wall so incap-
able of a good offense or defense..
That affliction is "elephantisis" or,
in words of one syllable, too much
Kipke didn't say whether he meant
beefiness of the cerebral cavity or
3around the midriff, but we'll be chari-
table and take his remarks to mean
he latter. No use recalling that men-
al giants were few on the 1934 squad.
You may recall how Michigan's
line outweighed every line they
opposed all season by about 10
pounds per man. You also may
recall some of the scores - 34 to
0, 27 to 0, 16 to 0, all in favor of
the other team. The conclusion
is fairly obvious. Those extra 10
pounds in modern open football
are just so many individual anch-
ors keeping 'the men from being
in the righ' place at the right
Kipke fears the same thing this
year. In Matt Patanelli, John Vier-
gever, Mike Savage, and Harry
Wright, almost sure starters, he al-
ready has a quartet averaging about
210. Add to this a couple of hefty
guards and Schroeder or Greenwald
Psychology Note:
Find A Good Miler
And Quit Worrying
That the value of at least one good
miler on any track team is not only
real but psychological is borne out
by numerous instances. Coming as
it does, the frst event on the stand-
ard schedule of events, a good show-
ing, expected or unexpected, tends to
lend enthusiasm to a team in the
following events.
Two examples of that tendency
were given during the indoor season,
in the Ohio State dual meet and in
the Conference meet. Against Ohio
State, three Wolverine runners, Cap-
tain Harvey Smith, Clayton Brels-
ford, and Harry O'Connell, ran away
from the field to score a slam in the
opening event, leading the way to
the team's smashing victory which
was in many ways the most impres-
sive of the victorious indoor sched-
Again in the Conference meet the
three runners came in to place, Brels-
ford winning the event in which he
had been picked to finish no better
than fourth, Smith taking second af-
ter a week's illness, and O'Connell
staggering across for a point in fifth
place. Those showings prefaced' the
team's record-breaking total in win-
ning the meet.
Perhaps the best example of the
influence of a surprise showing in
the mile was in the Conference out-
door meet of 1932 when Harmon
Wolfe, hardly picked to place, ran one
of the best races of his life to take
a second place in the mile run, set--
ting the pace for unexpected per-
formances by the entire Michigan
team, enabling the Wolverines to
take the team title.
With that influence recognized,
Michigan's team will be conceded
some advantage against California
in the meet April 13 at Berkeley, with
three milers all capable of placing.
Harvey Smith, in his first outdoor
showing of the year is expected to
win the mile, while Clayton Brels-
ford and Harry O'Connell are both
conceded excellent chances of mak-
ing the event a slam. Smith has
done 4:21.7 in the event indoors, al-
most three full seconds better than
the best time of Tom Healy, the
Golden Bears' leading miler, while
Brelsford and O'Connell are both ex-
pected to threaten Heavey outdoors

at a tackle, and you have another'
very heavy line.
There is, of course, no objection to
weight if speed is combined with it,
but the two seldom mix. Today a
good little man may be better than a
good big man, at least, speed is be-
coming a more important factor every,
Getting down to actual men, we
find that Kipke is counting on vet-
erans for five positions, and expect-
ing the freshmen to fill two. If he
were to name a starting line-up today
he would have Patanelli and Savage
at the ends, Viergever and Schroeder
or Greenwald at the tackles, Hanshue
.nd /arzoni at guards, and Harry
Wright at center.
That, of course, is very prob-
lematical. It depends on Wright's
learning how to play out of the
line on defense, and of Hanshue's
~ecovery from an operation which
he will undergo either Friday or
Saturday of this week, as well as
a host of "if's" which will arise
before Oct. 5.
Kipke counts on Marzoni, tough
Flint midget, to play a regular guard
and give his ball carriers some in-
terference on plays where the guards
pull out of the line to block. Mar-
zoni has the stuff, Kipke thinks, to
be one of the finest little guards ever
produced here. Pederson is a fairly*
good sophomore guard but he isn't
nearly as fast as Marzoni.
Greenwald and Schroeder are both
big, raw-boned boys with fine prep
-chool records and outstanding suc-
cess with the freshmen last fall.
Either may hold down the tackle post
opposite Viergever, especially if
Wright remains at center.
Kipke sees no reason why Pat-
anelli and Savage shouldn't be
among the best ends in the Con-
ference this fall and needs only a
couple of capable reserves. Frank
Lett has been shifted from end to
guard, and, according -to Kipke,
will be a better guard than he was
an end.
Ernie Johnson will be back to un-
derstudy the regulars and Kipke sees
two potentially great ends coming up
in Ghesquiere and Valpey, members
of the freshman team.
