Injuries Again
Force Kipke To
Sobsey, Valpey Sustain
Minor Hurts; Garber
May Start Saturday
After being practically decided on
a starting lineup for Saturday's game
with Pennsylvania, Coach Harry
Kipke was again "up in the air,,
over the matter at the end of last
night's hara practice session due to
injuries to Sol Sobsey, regular guard,
and Art Valpey, who was expected to
get the call at right end.
Sobsey strained ligaments in his
left shoulder during a scrimmage
with the freshmen. Dr. Frank Ly-
nam stated that the extent of the
injury would not be known until
some time today but that Sobsey
could not -drill this afternoon and
may not be able to play Saturday:
Valpey was kicked in the head earlier
in the drill and suffered a slight con-
cussion, being unable to remember
where he lived.
Viergever May Start
Kipke said after practice that if
Sobsey could not play John Vier-
gever, whom he had wished to keep
out of the game altogether due to a
leg injury, would probably start at
the tackle position with Wright at
center: If Sobsey can play, Vier-
gever may be kept out in favor of
Jesse Garber who has been impressive
while drilling with the Varsity, the
last two nights. Doctors stated that
Valpey would probably be in good
condition today and if so he will
probably start at right end in place
of Mike Savage.
The line has presented a big prob-
lem to Kipke all week. In the back-
field Sweet, Everhardus, Smithers
and Renner will start and practice
the last two nights has indicated'
that these four will provide Michigan
fans' with more deceptive football
than any Wolverine backfield has
shown in a number of games.
Depend On Passes
Forward passes, Yale and Prince-
ton's means of beating the Quakers,
will play a big part in the Michigan
attack as the coaches feel that if
Michigan wins it will be by the over-
head route.
A long scrimmage with the fresh-
men, who used Penn plays, again
dominated yesterday's practice and
as on Wednesday the Varsity often
managed to- drop the yearling backs
behind the line. Tonight the squad
will taper off the week's hard drilling
with a short practice that Coach
Kipke hopes will leave them in per-
fect condition for the Quaker affair.

Solve Double Identity
Case Of John Smithers
Johnny Smithers, sensational
sophomore halfback whose block-
ing ability has been largely re-
sponsible for the success of the
Wolverine running attack this
season, is hard to confuse with
anybody else - at least that is
what people thought up to yester-
day. Short, stocky, and with well
groomed black hair, Smithers is
pretty much of a separate entity.
To a local Ann Arbor paper,
however, Johnny is a ferocious
looking fellow with a typical
bristle haircut - and he sticks his
tongue out at opposing teams.
Emphatic denial by Smithers
of any of these characteristics
brought about further research
which revealed that the picture
which bore Smithers' name ex-
plained the above mentioned fea-
tures as a determined look that
forbode ill to any who might "bar
his path," was really a very poor
picture of Walt Lillie, reserve
guard, taken when he was in a
bad humor.

Freshman Swimming Team Threatens
Supremacy Of National Champions

A freshman team that can beat a
National Collegiate championship
It sounds impossible, but all out-
ward appearances seem to show that
such is the situation existing at
present down at the Intramural pool
where Coach Matt Mann is putting
his swimmers through their paces.
The explanation lies in the fact
that the Varsity is noticeably weak in
the free-style events, while the yearl-
ings boast a group of free-stylers who
have already established nation-wide
It is obviously difficult to pick arty
one man as outstanding from a list
that includes such stars as Baker
Bryant and Ed Kirar, late of Ohio
State and Wisconsin respectively,
Tom Haynie and Dave Holmes of De-
troit, and Bob Farnsworth of Buf-
Bryant Is Conference Star
Bryant, as a sophomore at Ohio
State last year, placed second in the
100-yard dash and fourth in the 220
in the Conference meet, and fifth in
the century in the nationals.
While Kirar was a relative un-
known before the Big Ten meet last
spring, his feat in taking a close sec-
ond behind Chuck Flachmann, Na-
tional Collegiate champion, in the
50-yard sprint established his reputa-
Haynie is a slight lad of 19 who
has really "been around" in the swim-
ming world. In 1934, as a student
at Massanutten Military Academy of
Woodstock, Va., he was picked num-
ber-one man on the All-American





prep school team at 440 yards. The
same year, competing for the Detroit
A.C., Haynie placed third in the
National A.A.U. meet at 500 yards.
Last winter the former Detroit
Northwestern swimmer touched out
Frank Barnard of the Varsity in the
500-yard event in the Michigan A.A.U.
championships, and then went on to
prove his versatility in the national
meet by eclipsing Michigan's Taylor
Drysdale in the 300-yard individual
medley. Drysdale is world's record
holder for this event.
Set Prep Mark
Farnsworth established a new Na-
tional Interscholastic record for 50-
yards with the sensational time of
:23:8 while competing for Mercers-
berg Academy.
While Holmes does not have as well
established a reputation as some of
his team mates, the showing of the
Chadsey High product in practice
at all distances from 220 yards to a
mile gives indication that he may be'
well on his way toward becoming the
real star of the outfit.
Others on the 15-man group of
"outstanding prospects," chosen by
Coach Mann from a squad of 36 and
from a original turnout of 125 fresh-
men, are Tom Robinson of Indianap-
olis in the back-stroke, free-styler
Lee Tomski of Detroit Eastern,-versa-
Varsity Passers
Have Completed
22 Of 42 Attempts
Last year many critics only laughed
when Michigan fans, trying to find a
ray of optimism, despite seven de-
feats, said that Capt. Bill Renner's
passing would make a real difference
in the results next year. However,
statistics of the four games played
so far this season show that Ren-
ner's right arm has made more dif-
ference than most had even hoped
With half of the schedule com-
pleted the Wolverines have attempted
42 passes and been successful in 22,
for an average of .523. Last year,
in four major. tilts, 32 attempts were
made and only 8 were completed.
Renner was on the hurling end of
all but two of the passes. Most every
touchdown that the Varsity has made
has been, either directly or indirectly,
through the air. Today Coach Kipke
boasts one of the most feared pass-
ing attacks in the country.

Spartans Off
To Battle Big
Temple Eleven
EAST LANSING, Oct. 31. - (kP) -
The Mighty Mites, of Michigan State,
set forth today to battle Temple's
giant undefeated team in Phila-
delphia Saturday.
Head Coach Charlie Bachman
took three full teams with him for
the blood-and-thunder battle he ex-
pects with Pop Warner's heavyweight
tricksters, who outweigh the Spar-
tans some 30 pounds to the man.
Warner's announcement that he
had foxed Michigan State scouts by
saving a whole new slate of plays as
a surprise greeting to the Spartans,
drew no comment from Bachman as
the team wound upaits going-away
drill and boarded a Philadelphia-
bound train. Bachman grinned wrily,
his players winked. It is a widely-
accepted corolary that no football
team in creation can turn out an en-
tirely new set of plays for any game.
The Spartans shook out a rolling
series of line plays in their heaviest
departure drill this afternoon, that
clicked with encouraging smooth-
Many of the experts shook their
heads, however, and stuck to their
earlier decision that State was biting
off more than it can chew in tackling
Warner's football steam-roller.



Cappy Cappon said a few weeks
ago that "Enthusiasm breeds mo-
mentum." He might have said just
as truthfully, that "Momentum
breeds enthusiasm."
The master minds are saying that
if Michigan gets off to a two touch-
down lead tomorrow as they did
against Columbia they'll whip Penn-
sylvania. Obviously then, enthu-
siasm that is bred by the team's
momentum isn't going to be of much
use. The solution seems to be to
cheer like hell before the game and
during the first quarter.
Let's hear these really boom!

Sports Of The Day


BOSTON - Sailor Jack Sharkey,
former heavy-weight champion of the
world started active training yester-
day for a comeback campaign to
prove that his defeat by King Le-
vinsky two years ago was not the end
of his fighting career.
COLUMBUS - Dopesters predict
that Ohio State will defeat Notre
Dame by a margin of two touch-
downs Saturday. They base their
predictions on Joe Williams and the
strong reserve power which Francis
Schmidt has at his disposal.
TORONTO - Tour Feu and Royal
Vintage finished in a dead heat at
Dufferin Park today in a one and
one-sixteenth mile test. The mutuals
were split and Tout Feu payed more1
to place than to win.

DETROIT, Oct. 31.-(P)--More
than one Detroit University lineman
seems to be entitled to use the line
about being little but a little tough
too. The Titans have only one 200
pounder in their forward wall but all
this season no team has made two
consecutive first downs against them
by rushing and only Villanova has
scored on running plays.

Having met and conquered the in-
comparable Al Barabas, Coach Harry
Kipke's gridiron machine is now
awaiting the meeting of the No. 1
Quaker from the University of Penn-
sylvania, Bill Kurlish, who with the
aid of three other triple threat backs,

that the Quakers will march through
the rest of their schedule without de-

Harmon's forces to a 34-0 victory over
the Columbia Lions to put Penn back
on the solid footing that had ap-
peared theirs for the asking before
the season's campaign opened. Last
Saturday it was the entire Penn
roster that participated in the 67-
0 destruction of Lafayette with Kur-
lish again the spearhead of the open-
ing drive.
All Four Are Stars
Kurlish, the fullback about whom
Harmon has built his attack, is not
the only star in the Penn camp; ac-
cording to reports from the east Har-
mon has a whole constellation with
Murray, Warwick and Elverson
rounding out a great backfield that
has plenty of time to get started
while a tough line holds the enemy
at bay.
Dubbed "first half champs" but
"scond half chumps" by Phila-
delphia newspapermen when they
dropped their first two games to
Princeton and Yale after leading at
the half, Penn opened up in the third
engagement and took its wrath out on
Lou Little's Lions.
Had To Beat Lions
When Penn advanced on Columbia
it had everything to gain by a victory.
Its supporters were disgusted with
the way it had flopped against
Princeton and Yale. Had Columbia
added more humiliation to Harmon
and his charges Penn would have
had little support for the remainder
of the season. Realizing what was
at stake, Penn shot its bolt in that
game and was successful.
, The Quaker backfield is intact
from 1934. Graduation took but
two men and left a squad that looked
tremendously impressive on paper
early in the fall. A hard charging
line, led by Capt. Paul Stofko at
guard, had little trouble in its last
two starts but may find the going
stiffer when it comes face to face with
Kipke's huge forward wall this week.
