Speedball, The Hybrid Sport,
Combines Agility And Power
By CARL GERSTACKER
Skinned knees, kicked shins,
bruised legs, black and blue marks
. . . there'll be plenty of these in the
next few weeks, for speedball, king
of fall intramural sports, is in sea-
Fourteen years ago Mr. Elmer D.
Mitchell, director of Intramural
Sports, created the game of speedball
to take the place of football as an
intramural sport. It was no easy
matter to make up a game that would
take the place of the gridiron classic.
The new game had 'to have the
roughness and toughness that made
football so universally popular and
yet be a sport that could be played
without the training, equipment, and
danger of injuries that come with the
playing of football.
Three Spores Combined
Mr. Mitchell decided to take the
good points from soccer, basketball,
and football, and see what kind of a
game he could develop. He combined
the kicking element in soccer with
the passing game used in basketball
and the all around play of football
.to produce a game with an almost
unlimited variety of plays.
The conglomeration of sports
which go to make up speedball has
resulted in entirely different styles
of play. Unlike football, where most
of the players are large and heavy,
an d basketball where height is a
prime requisite, speedball players
come in all sizes.
Style Dependent on Player
If the player is tall, he is more in-
clined to play the basketball type
of play because his superior height
makes it easier for him to catch
and throw passes. If the player is
short, he plays the soccer style be-
cause height is of no advantage in
A good example of the basketball
type of players was the Alpha Kappa
Lambda team which won 32 games in
a row from 1929 to 1933. In the last
two years the winning teams have
been made up of shorter fellows who
did more kicking than passing.
Gets Unexpected Popularity
Speedball was designed principally
to be used as an intramural sport
schools and junior highs, and the
boys that have played the game since
junior high days have invented trick
plays that the inventors never
They pick up the ball with their
feet to get around the rule that the
ball must be kicked before it is
handled, and get around the rule
against running with the ball by
throwing the ball. ahead of them and
catching it themselves.
Foreign Players Shine
The Americans don't turn out as
good speedball teams as the foreign
teams because they forget that they
aren't playing football and try to
rush the man with the ball.
An American team played a good
Chinese team here a few years ago.
The Chinese play the orthodox style
of play with every man in his proper
One of the Chinese players weigh-
ing about 100 pounds stood with the
ball waiting to pass it to somebody.
Eight or nine of the rusky Americans
rushed him and he tried to get out
of their way but they ran right over
him and left him lying on the ground.
It was poor speedball strategy but
the Americans got the ball.

Sweet Corrects Fault In
Kicking Form As Ritchie
Bill Renner stood out as a great
passer in yesterday's long aerial drill
which Michigan went through in
preparation for Doc Spears' Wiscon-
sin Badgers, whom the Kipke men
encounter at Madison Saturday.
Coach Kipke released the list of
men who will make the trip before
the beginning of practice. Thirty-
two players will entrain for Wiscon-
sin at 5:19 p.m. today. The squad
named to make the trip consists of:
Ends - Patanelli, Valpey, Savage,
Meyers, and Johnson.
Tackles --Viergiver, Lincoln, Kra-
mer, Luby and Murray.
Guards- Bissel, Sobsey, Garber,
Pederson, and Lillie.
Centers - Wright, Schuinan, and
Backs - Renner, Barclay, Gray,
Smithers, Nelson, Aug, Ellis, Ever-
hardus, Ritchie, Campbell, Sweet,
Remias, and Farmer.
Work on Passing
Kipke spent a large part of the ses-
sion yesterday working on and per-
fecting passing plays with Renner
and Johnny Smithers doing most of
the throwing. Renner, even against
the reserve team, which was perfect-
ly familiar with the plays, had re-
markable success with his tosses,
completing an average of about 75
per cent. The ends were making
some nice catches, but Bill's unerring
arm had the ball at the right spot
for them throughout the drill.
Almost all of the boys who are
Kipke Happy A fter
By FRED BUESSER
"Boy, did you see Renner pass.
The defense knew the plays too and
still they couldn't break 'em up. I've
never seen Bill do a better job."
Harry Kipke sat on the end of'
a battered locker room bench, hisl
face grimy, but his voice confident
as he answered questions at the con-
clusion of yesterday's practice.
Kip Praises Evie
"The train leaves at 5:19, I think
it is," Kip went on as he slowly pulled
the well known white sweat shirt over
his head. "What kind of shape is
Everhardus in?" someone asked as
Kip began to pull off his white top
socks. "He's good enough relaxer to
get himself in shape. If anybody can
do it, Chris can," Kipke replied.
The door opened at this point and
an avalanche of football players
poured in. Tired faces dripping with
sweat filled the stone floored room.
"Think you can make ithup to
the Deke House?" one of the boys
called at Everhardus who had just
"Maybe I'll get a ride," Chris smiled
,ts he went on.
Cappy Pilots Team
Kip had gotten down to his second
pair of socks by this time when a
reporter asked, "What did you think
of Cappon as a quarterback?" Kip
laughed out loud as he said "Hmm,"
and everybody laughed. Cappy really
did a good job of piloting Bennie
Oosterbaan's "Wisconsin" team in
dummy scrimmage against the Var-
sity, everybody said.
Kip picked up a towel and strolled
into the showers. Manager came in
with helmets to be put away in la-
belled compartments. A decided odor
of dirty sweat-socks filled the air.
The last hard practice in preparation
for the Badgers had been completed.
Basketball Players Will
Renew High School Tilts
Rivalry that waxed keen in high
school days will be renewed when
basketball teams made up of players
from Detroit Cooley, Grand Rapids
South, Lansing Eastern, Monroe
High, Ann Arbor High, Chicago Senn,
Upper Peninsula, and other high
schools meet ia a tournament to
settle the quc.,eion as to which school,
of the many that sent students to
Michigan had the best teams.
MANN TO TEACH FACULTY.
Matt Mann, Varsity swimming
coach, will offer two series of
swimming classes for male mem-
bers of the faculty starting this
week at the Intramural pool. A
beginners class will meet Tuesdays
and Thursdays from 12:15 to
12:45 p.m. and a section open to
any faculty member will meet
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
at the same time.

Everhardus was back in uniform
today and probably will be in shape
for Saturday. If not Chet Stabo-
vitz will be the likely fourth man in
the Michigan backfield.
Valpey Out Of Shape
Valpey, suffering from a strained
stomach muscle, will not be in very
good shape for the Wisconsin game,
but may play part of the time. The
same thing applies to Joe Rinaldi.
Cedric Sweet was getting off some
nice kicks earlier in the afternoon,
several of them going better than 60
yards. He appeared more confident
and will probably not mess up any
this week as he did against Indiana.
His trouble has been in taking too
many steps before releasing the ball,
Kipke expressed himself as well
pleased with the team at the con-
clusion of practice and indicated that
the game Saturday would be a close
The team will go through a light
