Varsity Makes Improved
Showing Against Frosh
In Scrimmage
Convinced, after three days of
close observance, that Harry Wright,
245 pound center, is the most capable
of the three pivot men available since
Joe Rinaldi was put in the Health
Service last week with a severe cold,
Coach Harry Kipke has decided to
start him at that position against In-
diana Saturday.
This decision, however, solves only
part of Kipke's problem for wtih
Wright in the lineup it is necessary
to have a guard capable of backing
up the line on defense, when "Tiny"
must be shifted to the guard position
because of his weight.
Chet Stabovitz was selected to fill
this position despite the fact that he
was an end, but the recurrance of an
old muscle injury in Tuesday's scrim-
mage has definitely put him out of
the race.
Sobsey At Guard
Yesterday Kipke put Sol Sobsey in-
to Stabovitz' position. Sobey, a sopho-
more, like Stabovitz is an end. He
has worked hard and the coaching
staff feels that he is due for a break.
It is doubtful, however, whether he
can get enough experience by Satur-
day to play guard in the Conference
Headline from the Chicago Daily
Times Monday - "INDIANA TO
In the passing and punting scrim-
mage, yesterday, against the fresh-
man team that offered such stern re-
sistance Tuesday, Jesse Garber was
at Fred Ziem's disputed post. Gar-
ber protected Renner and Smithers,
-who did the passing, well and showed
considerable all-around speed. If
Sobsey doesn't break in fast enough,
he will be next in line for the position.
With the return of John Viergiver,
who received a leg injury last Satur-
day, Bud Hanshue will also be avail-
able for the guard post.
Kelso To Shift
The shifting of Wright from cen-
ter to guard on defense will be dupli-
cated by Capt. Reed Kelso of the
Hoosier eleven. Kelso weighs 225
pounds and is too slow to back up
the line. His great weight and
strength have proved valuable in the
line while Daleo and Keck, the fifth
man in the Indiana backfield, have
done a satisfactory job of backing the
forward wall.
As a whole Coach Kipke felt that
the Varsity showed definite improve-
ment over their Tuesday performance.
A part of this improvement can be at-
tributed to the fact that Capt. Bill
Renner was at quarterback. His pas-
ses, both long and short, were as'
accurate as always and proved a real
puzzle for the freshman first team.
Johnny Smithers didn't have the
same success that characterized Ren-
ner's passing. Matt Patanelli showed
up well on the receiving end. His
lateral passes were accurate and ef-

Series Money
To Be Put Back
Into Ball Park
Entire Bengal Squad Is
Honored At Banquet In
DETROIT, Oct. 9. - (P) -A big
slice of that World Series gate is go-
ing to stay right in the ball park
where most of it was earned.
Frank J. Navin, president of the
Detroit baseball company, has an-
nounced that he would spend $500,000
this winter in enlarging the seating
capacity of Navin Field so that his
champion Tigers could play to a big-
ger house next season.
Navin told a group of 800 business
men who paid $5 each for the priv-
ilege of crowding their knees under
the same banquet table with the Tig-
er players at a "victory dinner" last
night that his plans would add 10,000
to 12,000 permanent seats. -
President Navin did not indicate
whether the enlargement of the park
would be accomplished by construc-
tion of additional bleachers or by ad-
dition of another deck to the pa-
Sullivan Is Ill
All of the Tiger players were guests
at the banquet, with the exception of
Joe Sullivan, southpaw relief pitcher,
who was ill.
From Manager Mickey Cochrane
to Joe Roggin, the batboy, they re-
sponded to toasts. Again with one
exception, Pete Fox, the regular
Bengal rightfielder.
Fox was blushingly silent, and
Marv Owen, who plays third base,
was called to "pinch hit" for him.
Marv rose to the occasion, but in all
"If Pete Fox, who hit .325 and
headed the series averages, won't talk,
who am I, who hit only .050, to go
popping off?" he began. Owen had
only one hit during the series.
The players will leave Detroit with-
in a few days, some of them joining
barnstorming groups, and others for
fishing or hunting trips. Manager
Mike has announced he'll head for
Wyoming, bear hunting again, but
this time for grizzlies.
Will Play Golf
Some of Mickey's mates plan hunt-
ing trips on a smaller scale. Ray
Hayworth ,his substitute behind the
plate, is going to give the game and
fish of southwest Virginia a time of

it. Elden Auker, the American league's
leading pitcher this season, and Ger-
ald Walker also will do some hunting,
but first they plan to get in some golf

Good football material, periodically
lacking from every grid camp in the
nation and the local one during the
last year, seems to fluctuate at Mich-
igan as the mercury in an Ann Arbor
Through the eight game schedule
that Harry Kipke's charges engaged
in last year, material that was good
for ground gaining seemed to be as
scarce as shoes in Ethiopia. However,
most experts are agreed that the pres-
ent crop of potential point getters
are sending the mercury up toward
the level that was reached by Mich-
igan's national champions in 1932
and '33.
Material Changes
There are several reasons why good
material is plentiful for a few seasons
and then drops below the average
for a few more. First, and perhaps
the primary reason, is that many high
school stars who wish to see their
names remain in the football head-
lines as college stars would, literally
speaking, rather be a "big frog in a
little puddle than a small one in a
large puddle."
In other words when a University
grid aggregation is romping over its
opponents with ease each season and
high school and prep stars who have
already established reputations for
themselves shy away from that school
where candidates report to the
coaches in droves and content them-
selves with starring at a smaller in-
stitution where material of quality
is somewhat lacking in quantity.
The second important reason why
material sometimes falls off comes
into play at the time a school is roll-
ing up impressive records. The alum-
ni of that institution, who are re-
sponsible for influencing many young
men of athletic ability to choose
their college, sit back and boast of
their alma mater's teams but forget
that players graduate in four years
and do not make efforts to replenish
the supply of material.
New "Greats" Arrive
As a result, for two or three sea-
sons the school's record drops and
with the drop comes an influx of more
new "greats" if the institution is one
of national importance. The alumni,
not being able to boast any longer,
contact the young stars of their com-
munity and point with pride to the
seasons of the past. These stars, real-
izing that the job of winning a posi-
tion on a team low in the supply of
good men is simpler than making a
championship eleven, discard ideas
of matriculating at a small college
and enroll at the large one where All-
American honors come more easily.
Such a turnover can be seen in the
Michigan camp. With Big Ten cham-
pionships theirs for four successive
years, the supply of potential All
Americans finally gave out when
prep and high school men chose
schools where competition was appar-

Plenty Of Stars
At present, the freshman squad is
replete with all-state men that in
nigh schools through the country ran
over opposition in a great fashion.
A consideration of former freshman
squads, however, and then a glance
at the Varsity lineup of two or three
years later will show that many of
the loudly heralded stars have been
forced to give way to men that didn't
appear so great in early days of their
The present Varsity lineup shows a
number of men that before coming to
Michigan were not thought of as fu-
ture college stars. On the other hand,
Matt Patanelli, Bud Hanshue, Mike
Savage, Cedric Sweet, Bob Cooper,
and Joe Rinaldi are Varsity men who
heard all-state plaudits ringing in
their ears while in high school and
are bearing out predictions of their
early coaches in making good records
for themselves here.
