Rinaldi Is Still Out
Everhardus Will Start At
Halfback; Hanshue To
Stay At Tackle
In an attempt to strengthen the
center of the Michigan line for the
Conference opener against the In-
diana University eleven tomorrow,
Coach Harry Kipke has inserted Sol-
omon Sobsey, erstwhile sophomore
end, in the guard post vacated by the
injured Fred Ziem. On defense the
190-pound newcomer will back up the
Sobsey played the guard position
for the first time Wednesday follow-
ing the injury that forced Chet
Stabovitz, who had also been an end
in the past, from practice. In the
Wednesday and Thursday scrim-
mages he showed up well. Michigan
observers are hoping that he will do
as well against the Hoosiers.
Wright At Center Post
Harry Wright, 245-pound center, is
the major reason for the shifting of
Sobsey from end to guard. Because
of his enormous weight he is unable
to back up the line on defense and
this job must be done by one of the
Should Sobsey be unable to fill his
new position satisfactorily Kipke will
have several alternatives. He can
shift Bud Hanshue, who is scheduled
to start at one of the tackle positions,
to guard and use him to back up the
line, or put Jesse Graber or Ernie
Pederson at Sobsey's post and change
Renaldi To Get Chance
When Joe Renaldi, who has been
out of uniform for two weeks because
of a severe cold, returns to practice
Coach Kipke will have the choice of
using him as guard or putting him
back at center. Renaldi has played
both positions in the past although he
thought to be the starting center
for the Michigan State game before
he took sick. Rinaldi definitely will
not play Saturday.
It is important that the center of
the Michigan line be at full strength
against the Hoosiers for it is there
that they are the strongest. With
Reed Kelso at center, Olmstead at
guard, Del Sasso, and McDaniels at
tackle, Indiana presents a strong
heavy line that is sure to give the
Wolverines a real workout.
Varsity In Punting Drill
Kipke put the Varsity and second
team through a stiff punting scrim-
mage, yesterday, with Sweet, Renner,
and Campbell doing the kicking. All
were getting off long, high punts and
the ends and tackles were getting
down under them fairly well. Later
in the afternoon the two teams
worked on a passing defense against
a freshman eleven. Practice was
closed with short session on the
tackling dummy.
The tentative starting lineup as an-
nounced by Coach Kipke finds Pa-
tanelli and Valpey at the flanks;
Manshue and Viergever, tackles; Sob-
sey and Bissell, guards; Wright cen-
ter; Renner, quarterback; Sweet, full-
back; and Smithers and Everhardus,

FIELDING H. YOST, staunch cit-
izen and arch Republican that he
is, is greatly burdened by the care
of the nation these days after the
receipt of a letter from a friend.
"After consulting reliable statis-
tics I find that you and I and an-
other friend are carrying the weight
of the nation's work," the letter said.
"There are 124 million people in the
United States. Fifty million of those
are eligible for pensions and 60 mil-
lion are disqualified from working
by child labor and similar statutes or
for working in the government, and
there are, according to the best re-
ports, 13,999,997 unemployed. That
leaves just three persons to carry on
the work of the country, and I'm get-
ting tired."
Mr. Yost is tired too.

Michigan is given a slight edge

BLOOMINGTON, Ind., Oct. 10. -
(P) - With a light 'checking-up'
schedule for Friday afternoon before
leaving for Ann Arbor the Indiana
University football team was to wind
up its heavy preparation today for
the opening game of its Conference
season Saturday against Michigan.{
Anxious to utilize every possiblel
period for a rehearsal of plays and
to groom his charges for better ex-
ecution of the intricate fiveman back-
field formation, Coach Bo McMillan
scheduled the departure of the Hoos-
iers for Friday evening. The team
will stop Saturday morning in Ypsi-
lanti, before going to the Michigan,
The game Saturday, opening the
Big Ten campaign for both Indiana
and Michigan, will be the ninth meet-
ing of the two schools on the grid-
iron. Michigan has won seven of the
eight previous encounters, Indiana's
lone victory coming in 1928, when a
6-0 triumph was eked out.

None of the members of the coach-+
ing staff is as gifted as Wally Weber+
when it comes to drawing everyday
pictures. Wally has a vocabulary all
of his own which he uses almost ex-
clusively on his freshman football
charges. His latest blast was oc-
casioned by the failures of his yearl-
ing backs to handle the Varsity prop-
"What's a matter with you guys?"
he roared. "Every time you see that
ball coming and a couple of ends
waiting to cut you down, you see
yourself in a . long black box with
six silver handles headin' a slow pa-
rade. Your knees get a little weak
don't they? Well, I want somebody
in their who's gonna run those punts
back 60 yards. Michigan State done
Hopefuls Besiege Mentor
He was immediately besieged by
eager freshmen who plaintively
pleaded, "Lemme in coach, I can do
it." One candidate was a little doubt-
ful about his ability to handle punts
because "I'm a guard," but he was
willing to try the job because it was
kind of cold standing around doing
After one or two substitutions, or-
der was restored, but one man refused
to have his enthusiasm quenched.
He was a 140-pound end whose chief,
in fact only, asset was his spirit. His
battle cry was, "Put me in, not Wally,
and watch me smear 'em. I'm afraid
of those mugs just because they're
bigger than me." But Wally realized
that his heart wasn't enough to hold
off the fast-charging Varsity backs.
Later in the afternoon while par-
ticipating in a dummy scrimmage

Weber's Vocabulary Is Aid To
Spirit Of Freshman Grid Squad


against the first stringers, the feath-
erweight flanker came under the eye
of Head Coach Kipke when his ex-
uberance was breaking up the scrim-
mage because he refused to be taken
out of the play when touched, which
is all that is required in a drill of
this sort. When practice ended he
strolled happily off the field mutter-
ing to himself, "Well, I guess I showed
'em. "I gave Kipke an eyeful too."
Incidents such as these are becom-
ing commonplace on Ferry Field since
the good-natured Weber was ap-
pointed head coach of the freshmen
gridders. During the practice ses-
sions he roams about the field offer-
ing advice and criticism to his
charges. His voice can be heard at
the remotest corners of the field as
he urges the yearlings to "hit" 'em
hard, but clean."
Freshmen Smear Varsity
As a result of Wally's inspiring
presence, the first year men have
outdone themselves at times and ac-
tually outplayed the Varsity. Web-
er's first squad of 25 picked men is
being thoroughly drilled in the Mich-
igan system of play, so that when
they report next year they will be
prepared for more advanced teaching.
In the past it was the policy to have
the yearlings learn the plays of teams
that. Michigan would meet on the
next Saturday. Under this system
