Increased Pep
As Game Nears
Earl Meyers Appears At
Right End; Joe Rinaldi
Benched By Cold
Prodiguous tales of a superteam
are drifting down from the Michigan
State camp at East Lansing, but side-
line observers at Ferry Field during
the past two days are by no means
pessimistic over Michigan's chances
against the Spartans in Saturday's
Enthusiasm hit a new high for the
season yesterday afternoon as Coach
Harry Kipke's first-string eleven went
through a defensive scrimmage
against State plays as exhibited by
a freshman team under the guidance
of Assistant Coach Ray Courtright,
and showed more drive and deter-
ination than has been seen at any
other practice session this fall.
Coach Courtright scouted the
Spartans last Saturday when they
swamped Grinnell College 41 to 0
in a flurry of speedy runs and ac-
curate passes.
Yesterday's drill, which closed with
an offensive scrimmage against a
second team of freshman, saw Earl
Meyers reap the reward of his good
showing in last Saturday's scrim-
mage and assume the right end post
which two weeks ago was considered
a toss-up between Mike Savage and
Art Valpey. Meyers, who was the out-
standing player on last season's bas-
ketball team, came close to a starting
berth as a sophomore last year, but
injuries hindered him throughout the
season. He never played high-school
Joe Rinaldi, conceded the starting
job as center, was kept out of uni-
form for the second day in succes-
sion as the coaches refused to take
chances with his cold. Bob Amrine,
junior letterman, was at the pivot
position throughout yesterday's drill,
and seems to have recovered from the
knee injury which put him in the
hospital two weeks ago.
The rest of the line was composed
of /Matt Patanelli at left end, John
Viergever and Melvin Kramer at the
tackles, and Frank Bissell and Bud
Hanshue at the guard positions.
Captain Bill Renner was at quarter,
Cedric Sweet at full, John Smithers
at righthalf, and Chris Everhardus
and Stark Ritchie alternated at the
left halfback tasks. Ritchie is still
showing some effects of his early-
season ankle injury, but will un-
doubtedly see action against State
Saturday, with Everhardus due to get
the starting call.+

Schmidt 'Foresees'
New Pass Attack;
Michigan Uses It
Coach Francis Schmidt, football
mentor at Ohio State, states in an
article written by him in this week's
"Saturday Evening Post" that he ex-
pects to see a new development of
the lateral pass this season; name-
ly, a lateraf following an intercept-
ed forward.
It might be interesting for Coach
Schmidt to know that in a recent
scrimmage between Michigan's Vars-
ity and reserve teams this play was
successfully attempted twice, each
time for a considerable gain.

Phil Cavaretta, 19-year-old Cub
first sacker, has startled experts
throughout the season with his seAn-
sational play which has added much
to the Chicago attack and may
prove an important factor in the
outcome of the World Series which
opens in Detroit today.

Open Series In
(Continued from Page 1)
There's a general feeling that the
wild scenes of 1934, when the bleach-
erites drove Joe Medwick out of the
final game with a vegetable barrage
after the Card left fielder swapped
spikes with Marvin Owen at third
base, will not be repeated this year.
Baseball men in general feel that
World Series action slipped somewhat
from its usual high plane in last year's
knock-down, drag-out battling, and
very definite admonitions are out
from the powers that be not to let it
happen again.

Freshman Grid
S quad Boasts
With freshman football practice
only two days underway 168 men
have already been issued complete
uniforms. According to Henry Hatch,
equipment manager, this is the larg-
est squad of yearlings to report for
a Wolverine team in many years.
The coaching staff has inaugurated
a new system of directing the fresh-
man squad this year whereby Wally
Weber, Varsity backfield coach, will
assume leadership in drilling the first
year men. The remainder of the
freshman staff will be composed of
those coaches who will not be needed
for Varsity instruction. Coaches Ray
Fisher and Ray Courtright and part
time Coaches Bill Borgmann and Carl
Savageswill alternate as freshman
This year's freshman squad is com-
prised of many former prep school
stars, all-state men, winners of innu-
merable honors and awards on prev-
ious fields of football wars. Whether
or not these men will go on to greater
fame with Michigan will riot depend
on their accomplishments achieved
before they reached Ferry Field but
will depend on what they do before
the eyes of the coaching staff this
year and after.-
Practice the first two days has been
confined to fundamentals, such as
blocking and tackling and warm-up
exercises. Passing and punting has
been stressed and will continue to be
as they are always the primary fea-
tures of the Michigan system of play.
Yesterday a picked freshman team
was sent in to run State plays against
the Varsity.

Periscopic Measuring
Device Fails To Work
The engineers, the submarine men,
and a few surveyors got together and
devised a new fangled system of per-
iscopic measuring for yardage in foot-
ball. Some equipment was sent to
Ann Arbor for a tryout but by the
time all the calculations and lining
up was made the team had either
made another first down or else the
ball had changed hands and was
headed in the opposite direction.
The idea was good but the thing
was about twice as slow and compli-
cated as the old method. On each
end of the ten yard measuring chain
was a periscope or telescope with a
visual range of 180 degrees.
The chainmen lined up the ball and
both ends of the field so that they
were at right angles, then they were
sure of having the ball and the
measure in direct line with each other.
But by the time the end of the field
was located in the periscope the ball
was underway again. Consequently
the linemen were at one end of the
field and the playing at the other.
Coach Ken Doherty issued the
first call for freshmen candidates
for track and cross country yes-
terday. All who are interested are
requested to report to Coach Do-
herty any afternoon this week at
the Yost Field House.

Matnien Start
1935 Season
With_60 Men
The Michigan MVarsity wrestling
team will begin practice next Mon-
day under the direction of Captain
Wally Heavenrich, it was announced
yesterday by Coach Cliff Keen. Keen.
who is also a Varsity football line
coach, will work with the team when-
ever he is able until football season
is over, when he will assume full
The practices are open to any eli-
gible student and Keen stressed the
fact that experience is not necessary.
He pointed out that he has had only
two experienced wrestlers report to
him since he has coached at Michi-
gan. What will be required is the
ability to work hard and attend prac-
tice regularly.
A squad of over 60 men is expected
to report to Captain Heavenrich
when practice does open but frequent
cts will be made in order to bring
the squad down to a trained unit.
The spring training season which was
instituted last year has produced sev-
eral likely looking candidates who
with last year's veterans and the
strong freshman squad should form
a strong nucleus for the 1936 team.
Keen especially wants candidates
for the lighter weight positions which
have suffered from a dearth of ma-
terial in recent years. Last year's
team was obliged to default several
times owing to this fact and Keen
is anxious to prevent a repetition of a
simlilar misfortune this year.

DETROIT, Oct. 1. - With betting
odds on the World Series going up
and down in thermometer fashion and
with everybody in a state of excite-
ment over the outcome, two of the
calmest people are the two who should
have the biggest case of jitters. And
those two are Lynwood Rowe, the
starting hurler for the Tigers and
Lonnie Warneke, number one Cub
pitcher who will take the mound in
the opener at Navin Field tomorrow
of ternoon.
The Schoolboy is confident that his
early season jinx is over and that his
pitching arm is limbered up so that
he will be able to hold the Chicago-
ans in hand. The only thing is that
Rowe has always been rated as a mid-
summer hot weather tosser and with
this cool spell still hanging on there
is a possibility that his arm might
not be as limber as it should be.
Slow In Startil
At the beginning of the season
Rowe couldn't get started but after
the warm July weather struck he
snapped out of it and has raised his
pitching average so that he ended up
as one of the ranking pitchers in the
American League. Last year at series
time the weather was warm and
balmy and Rowe did well. Fair wea-
ther is predicted for the game and the
probability is that he will be in good
Warneke on the other hand has
been a steady pitcher although he
put on a spurt with the rest of the
Cubs and helped a long way in ex-
tending their 21 game streak. Last
week against the Cardinals he pitched

dinals spend about $13,000 on base-
balls alone during each season ac-
cording to a recent estimate..

a two-hit game in which only 28
men out of a minimum of 27 men
faced him. However Warneke, also
hails from the same neck of the woods
as Rowe, coming from Mount Ida, a
hamlet about 50 or 60 miles from El
Dorado, and with this taken into con-
sideration perhaps Warneke might
might be a bit stiff and off balance
also be a bit stiff and off balance in
cold weather.
Traditions or no traditions, luck or
no luckathe team that clicks, the team
that plays the best ball and the team
that boasts the best pitching is the
outfit that is slated to win.
