A Woman's Viewpoint
FOR THE THIRD TIME in my three years on The Daily a letter comes
to this page from a co-ed reader. For a casual woman observer the
writer shows that she does have a good idea of what she is talking about,
although as usually is the case in superficial observation of something that

Need Place-Kicker
With Chris Everhardus diefinitely
out of football for the rest of the
season, Coach Kipke has seen search-
ing among his squad for a capable
place-kicker. Ed Phillips, John Jor-
dan and Bob Campbell all tried kick-
ing extra points under fire yester-
tay afternoon. Jordan, however,
seerms to be out of the question be-
cause it is not often that a center
is pulled out of the line to kick field
goals and without him the only cap-
able kickers seem to be Johnny
Smitlhers, Alex Loiko, Phillips and
John Brennan.
Coach 'nipke tried out his first-
strjing replacements yesterday with
a scrimmage against a freshman
team. The reserves had Louis Levine,
Phillips, Ed Stanton and Stark Rit-
chie in the backfield; Loiko and
Smick at the ends; Forrest Jordan
and Don Siegel as tackles; Ralph
Hekkirien and "Dutch" Vndewater
in the guard positions and John Jor-
dan a# center.
The third and fourth Varsity teams
also scrimmaged against freshmen.
The freshmen who had been battered
around all afternoon 'rose in all their
might on one occasion when Parfet,
a frosh back, intercepted a pass on
his own ten yard line and ran 90
yards for a touchdown against the
Varsity third stringers.
Barclay Quarterback
'Te Varsity quarterbacked by
Bill Barclay, spent most of the after-
nona on defense in dummy scrim-
mag, against a freshman team using
Minnesota plays. After a long ses-
sion of schooling in how to stop the
Gophers' vaunted running attack,
they ran through signals by them-
selves with Gedeon and Patanelli al-
ternating at left end. Gedeon showed
up in the Hoosier game as one of
the putstanding pass receivers on
the team and according to the way
things shape up at the present will
probably get a chance at his specialty
in Saturday's battle. He seems to
have overcome any defensive weak-
nesses that he may have had and
made some clean hard tackles yester-
day afternoon.
With both Gedeon and Art Valpey
in the game, Bob Cooper and Johnny
Smithers will get an opportunity to
use the passes that they have been
practicing all week. Cooper, Barclay.
Ritchie, Sweet and Campbell all
worked out at punting and receiving
yesterday. Sweet got off some good
kicks but Cooper still seems to be
off form. Bob is not keeping his eye
on tbeball awhen he drops it but will
probably have this difficulty ironed

the receiving. George Marzonie took
out a little of that "Get a Gopher"
spirit on his tackles and mad? a
couple that drew praise from Coach
Kipke. The temper of the squad is
best shown by the way that the Var-
sity keeps pepping each other up with
shouts of, "C'mon now, we're bog-
ging down." They all seem very
earnest about this matter of going
out and "getting a Gopher."

EAST LANSING, Oct. 14.-(I)-
Michigan State took a look at Mis-
souri's style of football play today-
and liked it.
Preparing for the homecoming
game with Missouri Saturday, the
East Lansing Spartans put on the
best showing of the week in scrim-
mage against freshmen who used
the visitors' plays .
Head Coach Charley Bachman,
however, professed no optimism as
a result of tonight's showing, assert-

should not expect to gain much
ground against his Varsity, regard-
less of whose plays they used.
In addition to the scrimmage in
which the Varsity sought to accustom
itself to Missouri's style, Bachman's
Spartans paid a good deal of atten-
tio nto their own passing attack. This
has been erratic in practice lately.
Three of State's forward passers,
Al Agett, the veteran; Johnny Pingel,
a sophomore crowding him for hon-
ors, and Art Harris, a sophomore
"find," rained passes all over the
field tonight, and their performances
were better than they had been all
this week.
Balsamo Is Winner
Over Seelig In First
NEW YORK, Oct. 14.--(P)-Harry
Balsamo, the battering brakeman
from the subway, bounced Eric See-
lig, German refugee, out of the mid-
dleweight picture tonight with a
speedy knockout in the first round
of their ten rounder in the New York
Hippodrome. Balsamo weighed 159 3/4
and Seelig 1592. 1
The German, hailed as one of the,
best J60-pounders in Europe, hit the
deck three times before Referee
Johnny Marto waved him to his
corner after 1:04 of one-sided bat-
tling in the opening heat.
Most of the experts had picked
Seelig to stop the hard-hitting buta
erratic subway brakeman, whose sur-
prise victory projected him into the
front rank of challengers for Cham-
pion Freddy Steele's middleweight
Balsamo didn't give the Teuton a
chance to get started. Ripping in
with the gong he cut loose with an
attack that kept Seelig on the can-
vas almost I continuously until the
referee intervened.
MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 14.-(I)-
Minnesota gridders went back to
fundamentals today as Coach Bernie
Bierman stressed blocking and de-
fensive work.

Being interested in the reason for Michigan's recent defeats, I approached
several students with-the question, "Why?" For answer they merely shrugged
their shoulders and sighed. I placed the same question before people who
have attended Michigan games over a period of many years. Some were
willing to give what I consider constructive criticism.
Of one accord they agreed that there is nothing wrong with the players.
Far from that, they had nothing but praise for their courage in fighting
under difficult conditions. "They are fighting with only one weapon-the
'Michigan System'-and that weapon became dull several years -ago," was
As the leading sports writer for one of the Detroit papers says about the
team. "They are playing a modern game under old-fashioned methods."
And now may I ask a few questions which have been puzzling me?
1. Why does Michigan continue to play this so-called old-fashioned
2. What has caused the team to become so nervous and self-conscious?
What has become of that fighting spirit?
3. According to public opinion; Patanelli and Everhardus have a lot of
what it takes to make them superior players, and yet they are playing no
better a game than they did three years ado. Why not?
4. Is it not true that several years ago, because of a disagreement,
Michigan's athletic relations with Notre Dame were severed and Notre
Dame and its methods condemned in Ann Arbor? And is it not true that
some of Coach Bachman's success two weeks ago came about because of his
use of Notre Dame plays? If this is true-and many say it is-who is
responsible for such stubborn blindness?
May I leave with you the question which seems to be troubling so
many fans? Could it be that the Michigan team is incmp-tently

CINCINNATI, Oct. 14.-(A)-John-
ny Fischer is tired, fed up with the
receptions, dinners and well wishing
that followed his victory in the Na-
tional Amateur golf tournament.
Almost since the day Johnny re-
turned to Cincinnati with the beau,
tiful cup that signified the cham-
pionship, he's been hustled here and
there; asked to say a few words to
this group or that.
"I'm tired," he said, rather spon-
taneously today.
"It has almost been harder than
winning the title itself."
There had been little time to study
his law books-Fischer is a student
in the University of Cincinnati col-
lege of law-and almost no time to
do the things he wanted to do. It's
been one invitation after another.
"Won't you do this" or "Won't you
do that."

championship at Garden City, L. I.

Fischer has been the guest at two
football games, a huge civic dinner
given by the golf clubs of greater
Cincinnati, a reception by each of
a couple of clubs and at a score of
other functions. His family has seen
him only between his dashes to this
or that affair.
"Bu't it's all about over now, thank
goodness," Johnny said. "Last night
was the last for awhile."
