Strengthens Offense
With the freshman gridders exhib-
iting Indiana's running and passing
attack, Michigan's Varsity and re-
serve elevens concentrated on defen-
sive play in yesterday's practice drill.
Coach Kipke also sent his proteges
through an offensive dummy scrim-
mage in an effort to polish off the
Wolverines' attack.
Bothered by thigh injuries, both
Capt. Matt Patanelli and Bob Cooper
were again kept out of action in an
effort to safeguard the regulars from
further injury. A badly bruised shoul-
der also kept Johnny Smithers from
taking part in practice for the second
straight day.
Smick Replaces Loiko
Cedric Sweet returned to his old
fullback post as Coach Kipke shifted
Tex Stanton and Alex Loiko to the
reserve team with Danny Smick re-
placing Loiko at the Varsity left end
post. Previous to the dummy scrim-
mage the entire squad was sent
through a long session in covering
punts. With Cooper out of action,
Sweet and Campbell shared the kick-
ing duties. Both managed to come
through with.some fairly long punts
enabling the linemen to cover them
quite accurately.
Bob Curren, sophomore prospect,
was advanced to the Varsity squad
and alternated with Sweet at full-
back during the offensive drill
against thesfreshmen.Elmer Ged-
eon was also used at right end
in place of Art Valpey who was given
a much needed rest. Other players
on the first team were Fed Janke
and Mel Kramer at tackles, John
Brennan and George Marzonie,
guards, and Joe Rinaldi, .center. In
the backfield, Bill Barclay remained
at quarter with Stark Ritchie and
Bob Campbell shared the passing as-
All-Soph Backfield
An all-sophomore backfield fea-
tured the make-up of the reserve
eleven which alternated with the
Varsity on defensive and offensive
work. Louie Levine was a quarter
with Ed Phillips and Wally Hook
at the halfback positions and Stan-
ton at fullback. Levine did most of
the passing. After both teams fin-
ished their dummy scrimmages,
Coach. Kipke returned to his old role
as a kicker in order to give Ritchie,
Campbell, Barclay and Hook added
practice in returning punts.
The reserve lineup with the excep-
tion of Smick who replaced Loiko
remained the same. Norm Nicker-
son was at the right end post, Don
Seigel and Forrest Jordan, tackles,
Jesse Garber and Clarence Vande-
water at guards and John Jordan at
center. The rest of the squad scrim-
maged against another freshman ag-

Two hundred pounds of tackle trouble faces Michigan Saturday in
the form of Indiana's Captain Chris Dal Sasso. A veteran of two years'
experience, Dal Sasso was mentioned frequently in all-Western Confer-
ence discussion last year. Standing 5 feet 11 inches tall, the sturdy
Hoosier captain is bound to cause Michigan's line a lot of trouble.

It will be remembered that the
Wolverines won from the Hoosiers in,
the second game of the 1936 season
when Vernon Huffman, Indiana all-
around star, did some queer things
while catching one of Ced Sweet's
punts, the ball rolling over the goal-
line where Capt. Matt Patanelli re-
covered for the only touchdown of
the game.
Huffman, who was and is the star
of Bo McMillin's "five-man" back-
