Coach Kipke Shifts Lineup Again For Penn





I' i
PERHAPS the biggest war news to
come to Ann Arbor in more than
a decade was uncovered yesterday by
Fred Warner Neal, the editorial staff's
keenest uncoverer. He reports that
Mr. Kipke, Michigan's chief military
strategist, has picked the Ethiopians
over Italy in the intersectional game
now being played in Africa.
Mussolini is a shrewd coach,
but then Haile has his tricks, too,
Mr. Kipke is reported to have said
but he picks the Africans for their
end play and shifty offense over
the air attack of the Fascists.
A matter which has the Michigan
coaches and equipment staff in the
greatest perplexity has arisen with
the revelation that the jerseys of
Michigan and Pennsylvania are al-
most identical. It being too late to
order new jerseys for Michigan, ad-
hesive tape not being satisfactory as
a marking, and the only available old
jerseys here being a partciularly re-
pulsive hue of yellow, great conster-
nation is being evidenced.
A wire to Pennsylvania to con-
firin the nature of the uniforms
which the Quakers intend to use
may bring a answer which will
relieve the troubled local camp,
THE long delayed football game
between the managers and corres-
pondents may at last be played if
present plans are realized. With the.
failure of the Medicals and the Law-
yers to garner .equipment or to ar-
range a suitable meeting, the two
teams are contemplating playing be-
tween the halves of Saturday's game.
They point out that only forty-five
minutes of entertainment have at
present been planned for the fifteen-
minute period, andthey might make
it at least an even hour.
YPSILANTI, Oct. 30. - WP) -The
Valparaiso University-Michigan Nor-
mal football game, originally sched-
uled for Saturday, has been changed
to Friday.

Wriglt Returns
To Pivot With
Garber In Line
Varsity Improves Passing
Attack; Stops Quakerl
Formations Cold
Again shifting his lineup in an
effort to find a combination that
will successfully cope with the power-
house attack of Pennsylvania Satur-
day, Coach Harry Kipke of Mich-
igan's Wolverines yesterday put Tiny
Wright back at his regular pivot po-
sition, shoved Jesse Garber into the
vacated tackle post and played Art
Valpey at right end in place of Mike
The line is the only problem in
Kipke's mind, his backfield being de-
termined when favorable medical re-
ports indicated that Smithers and
Everhardus would be in fit condition
to start against the Quakers.
Smear Penn Plays
After watching his new forward
combination of Patanelli and Valpey
on the flanks, Garber and Kramer at
tackles, Bissell and Sobsey at guards
and Wright at center stop Penn plays,
as run by the freshmen, cold for
half an hour Kipke stated that there
was more than a mere possibility of
this line starting Saturday. Only a
few times did the powerful Penn for-
mations prove effective and enable
freshmen to head through the line
for gains of any size. Far more often
the Varsity broke through and;
smeared the backs behind the line of
In this formation Wright plays at
left tackle on defense and Garber
at right guard. Only on offense do
they go to center and tackle, respec-
tively. Sobsey backs up the line with
Sweet, Smithers, Everhardus and
Renner. Kipke's plan of stopping
the strong Quaker running attack de-
pends most on the work of his tackles
and Wright's work Wednesday was
cheering indeed to the Wolverine1

'China Doll' to 'Man

Of Captain Renner
Capt. Bill Renner was once a
"china doll." That's what gentle-
men of the press were prone to bewail
in their own metaphoric way be-
fore the 1935 edition of the Wolver-
ine football team went out on the field
to play its first game.
"But the old order changeth, yield-
ing place to new," and lo and be-
hold Renner is now Michigan's "iron
man." That's what the critics call
him now, and not without good rea-
He Missed Four Minutes
Michigan has played four games -
a total of 240 minutes in all (or four
hours if you're that way) -and the
captain of the Maize and Blue has
been out on the field battling 236
minutes of that time. No "china
doll" there - "iron man" fits much
Renner's collegiate football career
has been a complicated and fretful
one. Coming here in 1930 as a fresh-
man he gave the coaches good reason
to believe that they were going to
have a cracker-jack passer, but in his
sophomore year his troubles began.
Injuries kept him on the side-lines
all season.
In 1932 Renner played in just a
few games. But Harry Newman was
at the peak of his glory and Bill had
to be satisfied with playing second
fiddle to the All-American. Towards
the end of the season Renner was
stricken with intermittent illness and
was not in action.
The 1933 season saw him back in
uniform but again Michigan had a
top-notcher at the quarterback post
in the person of Capt. Stan Fay, so
Kipke thought it best to use Renner as
his ace in the hole when the going
got tough and a pass was needed.
Started Disaster Of 1934
Early in the spring of the following
year Renner underwent an operation
for appendicitis but nevertheless re-
ported for the team in 1934, the year
of the great disaster. Renner suffered
a fractured ankle in the first scrim-
mage session of the year and once
again was forced to quit for the sea-
son. With no passers available, the
team's morale took a dive to rock
bottom, and it is unnecessary to re-
peat what happened.
Bill had only competed two years
up to the present season so it was
with particular gladness that Michi-
gan received the announcement that
Renner would return to school this
fall. And to further show its faith in
Renner's ability and spirit the team
elected him captain for 1935.
No one today will question the va-
lidity of the team's choice. For Ren-
ner's passing, plus the confidence he
has restored to the Wolverines, has
brought them back once more to the
ranks of the "better" football ma-
chines of the nation.
Illini Freshmen Clad In
White Gain In Night Tilt
CHAMPAlGN, Ill., Oct. 30. -- P) -
Here's a tip for a coach who has a
night game. In a drill under the
floodlights, Illinois freshmen made
some big gains against the varsity,
especially on aerials. The reason was
that, using a white football, they
were clad in white jersey and helmets
and the regulars couldn't tell where
the play was going.p

Phi Psi Wins
Third Straiht
Harrier Title
Victory Gives Fraternity
Permanent Possession Of
Championship Cup
Phi Kappa Psi won permanent pos-
ession of the interfraternity cross
country cup yesterday when they won
their third consecutive interfraterni-
ty cross country run with a three
man team that finished with a low
score total of 14% points.
Of the large field which entered
the grueling two and a half-mile
grind over the length of the Universi-
ty Golf Course, twenty-three men
Lawton Finishes First
Although the Phi Psi's won the
team championship and with it the
cup, Norm Lawton, husky Theta Chi
distance man, took first place and
set a new record in so doing. He
paced the field over most of the route
and beat out Ed Devine, Phi Kappa
Psi in the remarkably good time of
Lawton's team, Theta Chi, finished
second with a total of 19 points. Phi
Gamma Delta was third with 211/,
A.K.L. fourth with 35, Psi U fifth
with 44, Kappa Nu sixth with 53,
and Pi Lambda Phi seventh with 56.
Race Is Close
The winning Phi Psi team was
made up of Ed Devine who finished
second, Ross Faulkner who finished
in a tie for fifth, and Steve Mason
who placed seventh.
The race was close all the way with
Lawton beating Devine to the tape by
eleven seconds. The pack tended
to straggle out behind these pace
setters and finished in groups. Faulk-
ner and Bob Meril of Phi Gamma
Delta fought it out for fifth stride for
stride down the last hundred yards
and finished so close together that
Ken Doherty who was officiating
ruled it a tie.
The Alpha Omega entry was ruled
out of the race because two of their
men attempted to cut across the
course and save time. They were ap-
prehended by Intramural Director
Doherty Finds Javelin
Prospects In Eisenhart
If one happens to saunter through
the Ferry Field gate in the late after-
noon, he will perceive a score or more
of athletes clad in the conventional
grey exercise clothes lazily tossing
the javelin on the grass plot inside
the cinder track.
Standing there, his attention' is
drawn to a dark-haired youth, run-
ning easily, gracefully throws the
slender wooden shaft 175 feet down
the field. Ken Doherty eagerly
states that this newcomer is Charles
Eisenhart, a transfer from Nebraska.
It is rumored that while there Eisen-
hart threw the javelin 190 feet.
Among the other prospects are Ken
Hess and Fred Osberg who have done
better than 150 feet in prep school.
Ed Luders last year at Exeter tossed
the javelin approximately the same
distance. Another 150 footer is Vic-
tor Canever who attended Birming-
ham High school.

Valpey Is At End
Monday Joe Rinaldi was at the
pivot post but is now confronted with
the problem of beating out Garber.
Valpey's appearance at end is not
surprising as all through the season
Kipke has used him on the first team
several times a week in practice.
Evidence that Michigan's board of
military strategy figures that the way
to beat, the Quakers is by means of
an aerial bombardment was shown
early in practice when Kipke put his
charges through a 45-minute passing
Bill Renner, rated by experts as the
outstanding passer in the Mid-West,
and Johnny Smithers threw the
passes and every back and end of
note on the Varsity squad was given
a chance to show what he was worth
as a receiver. Renner, fully recov-
ered from a slight injury received in
the Columbia game, threw a number
of perfect passes and "Whitey" Aug,
Cedric Sweet and Ernie Johnson did
some expert receiving.
Passes Beat Them Twice
Both Princeton and Yale managed
to defeat Penn with tricky passing
plays in the second half and Kipke
is hoping that with Renner throw-
ing in his best manner the Quakers
may again suffer defeat this week.
Again this afternoon the Varsity
will go through a defensive scrim-
mage- against Penn plays. Coach
Kipke may experiment more with his
line but is expected to use the same
combination that functioned well
Wednesday. If. it does as good today
chances are that it will start Satur-
