Squad Deceptive And
What is going on behind the "no
trespassing" signs posted on the gates
of Ferry Field is unknown, but it is
sufficient to say that if a Wolverine
team good enough to beat Minnesota
can be built from the present ma-
terial on the squad, Coach Kipke is
going to send that team against the
Gophers Saturday. And the starting
place will from necessity be an at-
tempt to put more strength in the
Varsity line.
Will Experiment
Monday Kipke ninted that he
might carry out a previously-men-
tioned plan in this year's annual pri-
vate sessions and make a few ex-
perimental changes in the lineup, try
them out for two days, and if they
are not satisfactory go back to his
regular lineup.
When newspaper men are per-
mittednback on the field Thursday
they will either see some surprising
changes in personnel, br will not know
what new combinations have been
experimented with.
There is quite a lot of suspicion in
local football circles that the Mich-
igan mentor is not too well pleased
with the work done against Illinois
by several of his linemen, particularly
the tackles, and there may be some
shifts involving the men in these po-
End Is Problem
With Minnesota boasting one of
the best forward walls in the country,
a line that Scout Bennie Ooster-
baan characterizes as smart and de-
ceptive as well as powerful, next Sat-
urday's struggle can easily be won or
lost between the backfields, and it is
safe to say that much of the time
spent behind the locked gates will be
in seeking to bring the Wolverine
line up to a standard that can com-
pare favorably with the Gophers.

Five Deaths In Past Week May Threaten Football

Captains Minnesota

Season's Grid
Death Record
Mounts To 34
Five Past Week Fatalities
Make This Year's Toll
Highest Since 1931t
NEW YORK, Nov. 11. - (P) - Five
additional deaths during the pastj
creek sent the nation's 1935 football
'oll to 34 - the highest it has been
since 1931 when 49 fatalities resulted'
in a sharp revision of the rules - a
survey by the Associated Press re-
vealed today.
Complete data on all the facilities is
lacking, but more than half the cas-
ualties already have been charged di-
rectly to football by Floyd H. East-
wood of New York University, who
compiled the injury and death sta-
tistics for the American Football
Coaches Association and the RulesI
Committee of the N.C.A.A.
Although most schedules will not
be completed for almost three weeks,
this year's total so far is almost 40
percent in excess of last year's when
the toll for sandlot, athletic club,
high school and college was 25. The
latest victims included two sandlot-
ters and one each from clubs, high
school, and college ranks.
Statistics, representing a compo-
site of records compiled by the As-
sociated Press and Eastwood, show
that sandlot and high school deaths
have jumped nearly 70 percent over
1934. A year ago there were four
sandlot and 13 scholastic deaths; this
year the figures already are nine and
19 respectively.
Fewer fatalities have occurred on
college and athletic club gridirons
this year. Both divisions have had
three victims so far - a decline of
one each.
Sectionally eleven deaths have been
reported from the east, ten from the
midwest, four each from the south
and far west, three from the south-
west, and one each from Canada and

Writers Alter 'Big But Dumb'
Slogan Due To Gopher Record

Glenn Seidel, Gopher pilot and
quarterback, may again direct Min-
nesota's attack against the Wol-
verines. Despite an injury, Glenn's
play has been one of the main fea-
tures of the Gopher's march to an-
other Big Ten title and national
championship. Glenn is a senior
and is from Minneapolis.
since September, will also have to
be ironed out again. Four men have
seen action at the post this fall and
the play of none of them has been
consistently satisfactory. Mike Sav-
age was at the position Monday after
being off the starting list since the
Columbia game, but Ernie Johnson,
"Jumping Joe" Williams, a star of
the Ohio State football team, is a
graduate of the National Bantam-
weight Football League, where play-
ers must be not over 16 years of age
nor under 118 pounds in weight.

"As dumb as they are big" was the
way sports writers described Minne-
sota elevens not so many years ago.
Today these same writers are having
trouble finding adjectives enough
that will do justice to the true ability
of the Gophers.
No longer can the Vikings from the
far north beccalled a group of wild-
men - an unshackled powerhouse
that runs all over the place every
Saturday with a tremendous loss of
energy. It is still a powerhouse that
comes out of Minneapolis, but it is a
well-organized unit, an aggregation
of supermen that has exhibited spirit
and intelligence in piling up 22 con-
secutive victories against the strong-
est competition in the country.
Bierman Provides Spark
Bernie Bierman started the "new
deal" in Minnesota football when he
came up from Tulane in the fall of
1933 to take over the coaching reins.
In the course of that campaign, Bier-
man's warriors did not lose a game,
but played in four tie games, one
of these with Michigan, rated as Na-
tional Champions that season.
Last season found 10 regulars re-
turning, and enough stellar reserves
and outstanding sophomores addedto
satisfy any three average coaches.
They did all that was expected of
them and swept through all opposi-
tion for an undisputed National
Championship, swamping Michigan
34 to 0 and overpowering the power-
ful Pittsburgh and Nebraska elevens.
Some observers picked as, many as
five Gopher players on their All-
American selections.
Coasting To Title Again
This season the Norsemen are
coasting along to a second National
title despite the loss of six regulars
from the preceding year's team. Sub-
merged at the beginning of the cam-
paign by very great amounts of since-
silenced Ohio State ballyhoo, the
Gophers have steadily gained mo-
mentum as they rode over North Da-
ota State, Nebraska, Tulane, North-
western, Purdue, and Iowa. Every
team has pointed to its struggle with
Bierman's eleven, and every one of
them has had its early threats si-
lenced in a barrage of crushing line
drives, swift end runs, and daring
Michigan and Wisconsin alone re-
main in the way. A victory for either
of them would be a football miracle
such as comes about once every five
Before the sea6.-n started rumors
spread over the football world that
the Gopher line would be weak. Now
few voices are raised in protest as

to tackle he has the strongest for-I
ward wall in the nation.l
Laron And Tenner Forgotten
And even Butch Larson and Bob
Tenner, glorious ends, are being for-
gotten in the play of sophomores Ray
King and Dwight Reed.
The tackle posts are firmly in the
grasps of Ed Widseth and Dick Smith,j
either of whom could be placed on
an All-American eleven without too
much protest. Dale Rennebohm ap-
pears on the road to becoming the
Big Ten's best center. Veteran Ver-
non Oech and Charlie Wilkinson, for
two years understudy to the great
Bill Bevan, are making it extremely
hazardous for the opposition to try
the guard posts for gains.
Captain and Quarterback Glenn
Seidel was taken from the Tulane
game with a broken bone, but Babe
LeVoir is filling in and proving why
for two years Bierman called him "too
good to be a regular." Julie Alphonse
was suddenly declared ineligible, but
Minneapolis has its Tuffy Thompson,
who they say puts Ohio's "Jumping
Joe" Williams to shame.
'Why Bother To Bring
Jug?' - Gopher Trainer
MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 13. - uP)
- Oscar Munson, veteran custod-
ian of athletic equipment at the
University of Minnesota, today
polished up the Little Brown Jug,
famous "trophy" that goes to the
winner of Minnesota-Michigan
football games.
Munson finally gave in to thej

other veteran of the days when
Oscar seized a Michigan water
crock after a Wolverine-Gopher
gridiron battle in 1903, and said
he'd take the jug to Ann Arbor
Saturday for this year's game.
"Why take the jug down there
on that long trip?" asked Oscar,
"when we'll only have to bring it
back again? It might get broke,
or somebody might 'borrow it,' or

Nation's Outstanding Teams In
Games With Traditional Rivals

While in the main the sporting eyes
of Michigan will be focused on the
scrap for the historic Little Brown
Jug here in Ann Arbor Saturday, more
than just a sidelong glance will be
cast toward the nation's other leading
grid skirmishes involving members
of the gridiron elite, the undefeated
and untied elevens.
Bernie Bierman's Gophers have
taken six in a row this season and are
leading the parade of mid-western
unconquered teams, of which there
are only two. Marquette, the other,
invades Pop Warner's Temple camp
Saturday in an effort to continue its
victory streak and at the same 'time
will help in giving the east the out-
standing card of the day.
Ten Unbeaten Teams
At present there are 10 unbeaten
and untied major teams in the United
States with all, of them being men-
tioned for appearance in the Rose
Bowl New Year's Day. However re-
strictions will probably keep at least
two of them from getting a bid even
if their records remain unscratched
through the remaining games.
In the east Princeton, Dartmouth,
New York U and Syracuse are in the
top class while the South's only rep-
resentative is the powerful North
Carolina aggregation. In the South-
west Texas Christian and Southern
Methodist have unmarred seasons
and on the west coast the Golden
Bears of California are the only team.
As a result California is almost cer-
tain to be the west's representative in
the New Year's Day classic unless the
Ccllege of the Pacific or Stanford
proves unexpectedly tough in the next
two weeks.
Face Colgate
This Saturday not only will there
be hard opponents facing most of the
elite but traditional rivalries are dom-
inant on the day's list of attractions
- -

and there is always the chance of
an under dog finishing on top in such
an engagement.
Syracuse risks its record against
Andy Kerr's Red Raiders, Colgate.
favored to win by at least two touch-
downs, the factor of ancient rivalry
may prove a stumbling block for
Syracuse as it did in 1531 and '34
when Colgate spoiled otherwise per-
fect seasons.I
Meets Duke
New York has a breather in Rut-
gers and Princeton in Lehigh. Dart-
mouth meets Cornell, another tradi-
tional dog-fight in the east that has
more than an outside chance of end-
ing with unbeaten Dartmouth on
the bottom. Last year the only big
game Cornell won was from Dart-
mouth and is out to repeat. Besides
these games involving the undefeat-
ed in the east the Fighting Irish from
Notre Dame take on Army at Yankee
Stadium in New York City and ac-
cording to advance reports at least
80,000 should see the battle. Last
year the Irish won 12-6 and are fa-
vored to repeat. Pittsburgh and Ne-
braska round out the East's list of
headline affairs.
North Carolina, most favored club
for the Rose Bowl invitation, meets a
fighting Duke eleven in the South's
feature attraction. Southern Meth-
odist should have little trouble with
Arkansas but not so for Texas Chris-
tian who meets Texas. Coming along
rapidly, the Texans won by one point
and may be able to knock the Chris-
tians out of the group of national
title seekers. California plays A. A.
Stagg's scrappy College of the Pacific
but should get through unmarred.
Of all these unbeaten elevens Dart-
mouth stands out as having the
feature attraction.
