Of RegularsTuesday
Squad Shows Spirit
Stabovitz, Converted To
Guard From End Post,
Struck By Old Injury
Although it is hard to say just how
the Varsity eleven will fare this sea-
son, it is a reasonably sure thing that
Michigan will put a greatly improved
football team on the field in 1936.
The reason for such a prediction is
yesterday's offensive s c r i m m a g e
against, what is at the present time,
the yearling's first team. The fresh-
men presented a big, hard charging
line and a backfield that rarely let
the Varsity get away for any long
Yanke Is Outstanding
Outstanding for the freshmen was
Fred Yanke, capable tackle from
Jackson, who along with Hoover at
guard and Nicholson at end made the
left side of the line a tough spot for
the Varsity backs. Ralph Heikkinen,
guard, Bilby, tackle, and Marion
Thompson, end, were on the right side
witlh John Jordan, 225 pound Evan-
ston, Ill. center, backing up the line.
Lou Levine, Curran, Paquette and
Stanton made up the frosh back-
The first year men showed plenty
of spirit. Numerous times they broke
through the Varsity line but their lack
of tackling experience made it pos-
sible for the first string backs to slip
by. They were tackling hard, how-
ever, when they caught the ball car-
rier on their side of the scrimmage
line, oftentimes three or four men
hitting the runner at once.
Part of the freshmen team's suc-
cess in stopping the Varsity was prob-
ably due to the lack of variety in the
choice of plays at the beginning of
the scrimmage. In the latter part
the first string quarter mixed them
up and the Varsity made consistently
substantial gains.
Stabovitz Injured
Coach Harry Kipke's plan to con-
vert Chet Stabovitz, end, into a guard
to replace Fred Ziem, who received a
knee injury in the Michigan State
game, was upset by the recurrence
of an old leg muscle injury early
in the scrimmage. Dr. Lyman was
unable to say just how serious it
might prove.
As a result of this set-back either
Bud Hanshue, who will be back at
guard with John Viergever recovered
from his muscle injury, or Jesse Gar-
ber will be chosen for the guard posi-
tion with Frank Bissell.
Earle Luby started at the left tackle
position with Jim Lincoln showing
up well at right tackle.
Stark Ritchie, sophomore half who
is recovering from an injured ankle,
failed to show the speed that he
exhibited earlier in the season, but
time may clear up this fault where
medicine has failed.
Early in the practice the linemen
and fullbacks were put through drills
to develop speed, the lack of which
was an important factor in the Spar-
tan game.
Grimm Sure Of
Cubs Being In
'36 Title Clash

CHICAGO, Oct. 8. - (IP) - Charlie
Grimm is convinced that his Cubs, as
now constituted, can win the National
League pennant next year and with
added experience ,the World's Cham-
pionship, too.
"I am satisfied to stand pat on the
present line-up," Grimm said today,
"and intend to do it. I think the
squad we now have is good for three
or four years more ,and I am going
to string along with them. Of course,
I would like to get another starting
pitcher, but I will not weaken the
club in other departments to make a
trade to get one."
The Chicago manager, before
boarding a train for his home in St.
Louis, put his characteristic approval
on his Cubs, even in World's Series
"They are still all 'gentlemuns,'
great big 'gentlemuns' so far as I am
concerned." Grimm said. "They were
nice 'gentlemuns' when they won,
and they still are.
The only unfinished business of the
World's Series is the mailing of the
players' checks, and a verdict, if any,
by Kenesaw Mountain Landis, com-
missioner of baseball, in the Cub-
Moriarty squabble.
According to official figures each
Club player will receive $4,382.72, in-
cluding the radio money, while the
victorious Tigers will get $6,831.88.
Grimm said that if any of his play-
ers are fined, he would pay the money
out of his own pocket.

Hoosiers Will Try
For First Win Over
Michigan Since'28
When the Indiana University elev-
en meets the Wolverines Saturday
afternoon they will be seeking their
second win from Michigan in recent
years and the first since 1928.
The last meeting of the two teams
was in 1932 when Michigan defeated
Indiana by a 7 to 0 score. Both teams
battled on even terms but a fake pass
by Harry Newman proved the differ-
ence between them.
The Hoosiers will present a better
team, however, than they have put
on the gridiron in recent years and
one which should rank high in the
Conference this year and next for
most of the team will return next
Unlike Michigan State, Indiana
will present a forward wall which
depends on weight and strength and
which they use to good advantage.
The line should prove easier for the
Michigan squad to handle than the
Spartan speedsters. Weight and
strength are weapons of which the
Wolverines can also boast and the
weapons which proved to be the most
useless against Michigan State.
Against Centre, Indiana's first op-
ponept whom they defeated 14 to 0
last week, Kelso proved a pillar of
strength on the defense and made
both of the extra points with long,
high, straight end over end place
kicks that can do considerable dam-
age in a pinch.
Many observers call Kelso the best
pivot man in the Big Ten and have
him slated as the All-Conference se-
lection in that position in their pre-
seasons predictions. Unlike most
centers he does not back up the line
on defense, leaving this job for Bill
Dileo, a lighter and faster man who
also plays the fifth backfield position,
Ettore Antonini and Beasley fill
the end positions with Antonini hold-
ing the advantage in both experience
and skill. He does most of the pass
receiving and does it well.
Chris Dal Sasso and Charles Mc-
Daniels fill the tackle posts and use
their combined weight of 390 pounds
as much as possible. John Olmstead
is right guard.
Using the five-man backfield sys-
tem the line is sometimes balanced
and other times unbalanced depend-
ing on which side the fifth man shifts
into the line.
With Julius Alphonse, his star half-
back recently declared ineligible,
Coach Bernie Bierman of Minnesota
is now faced with the task of finding
a back to take his place. Bierman
coined a new grid term when he stat-
ed that his regulars must be "elastic
backs." By this he means they must
be able to fill any position that is left
vacant due to the lack of proper re-
serve strength.

Supervision Of
Amateur Loop
Will Aid Player
Willie Heston Promotes
Idea Of Organization Of
Sandlot Play
For years the majority of fatalitiesr
incurred either directly or indirectly
through participation in a football
game were suffered by players on the
sandlots. With this in mindWilliamj
Heston, former All-American back on
Michigan's old point-a-minute teams,
has organized the National Amateur
Football Association whose aim it is
to place these sandlot games under
the proper supervision.
Although at present only a few
states in the Middle West have taken
up this idea, it is the belief of the
founders that the organization will
soon become nation-wide. The first
step in this direction was taken when
Glenn S. "Pop" Warner, Dan Mc-
Gugin, and Ed Garbisch, an old Army
star, were contacted. So enthusias-
tic were they that they insisted on
active participation and now form
the Board of Trustees of the Educa-
tional Fund.
Ann Arbor is represented in this
organization by a local team known
as the "Merchants." They, along
with nine other squads, form the
Michigan League Number 1. Detroit
has four elevens in the league, Cooper
Brothers A.C., Ford Dealers A.C.,
Hicks-Schmidt A.C.; Oleynik Bodies
A.C., Flint Chevrolet A.C. and Wol-
verine A.C. hail from Flint, and Pfeif-
fers A.C. of River Rouge, Adrian A.C.
of that town, and Wyandotte Indians
A.C. complete the roll.
In the first contest on its schedule,
the local team was beaten in a hard-
fought battle against the Adrian club
by the score of 7-6. A 60-yard run
following an intercepted pass gave
the visitors a touchdown in the first
quarter and the ensuing place-kick
proved to be the winning tally.

Three College Youths
Sign With Cards, Tigers 1
BALTIMORE, Oct. 8. - (AP) - Hen-1
ry Schluter and Allen Griswold, a
pair of 19-year-old lads, will join thet
world's champion Detroit Tigers when;
the team goes south in the spring.
While the Bengals celebrated their
series triumph last night, Schluter
and Griswold disclosed they were
signed by Bill Doyle, Tiger scout, after
he had watched them play sandlot
ball here.
Schluter, a right-hander, plays
third base. He was captain of the
Baltimore Polytechnic Institute team
last year, and batted .318 during the
season.dGriswold plays third and
short and was graduated from Poly
in 1934.
Bruhn Also Signs
Milton Bruhn, former University of
Minnesota baseball catcher, said to-
day he had signed a contract with
St. Louis of the National League and
would report for spring training with
the Cards next February.
Bruhn was captain and catcher of
the Gophers, champions of the West-
ern conference last spring. He played
guard on the Minnesota football
team for three years.
club representatives are dtie a day
The meeting, postponed from last
week to allow the National League
to revise its schedule, isn't due to open
officially until Friday but Welch said
much of the work will be completed
before then.
The league plans a 44-game sched-
ule for each club with an additional
home-and-home series with all teams

Are Best Trained
The hockey team boasts of being
Michigan's best trained athletic
group and there certainly is no other
whose men ride a number of miles a
week to build up their legs. In the
coming campaign for title honors
Michigan's front line is expected to
play through most of the games with-
out substitutions and to do so every
man will have to be in perfect shape.
The schedule has not yet been an-
nounced but will probably consist
of 20 or 22 games, several of which
may be played on a eastern trip early
in the season. Coach Lowery lost
four men by graduation, John Jewell,
John Sherf, Don MacCollum and
Walt Curtis. A large ┬žized squad is
expected to report next month with
the goalie's position expected to be
the hardest to fill. Vic Heyliger, Dick
Berryman and John Fabello will rate
'highly among the front line candi-
dates, Heyliger and Berryman having
starred on last year's championship
sextet. Gib James, sophomore star
