For Columbia




Hard Drill

Capt. Patanelli
And Smick Will
Start At Ends
Siegel Works At Janke's
Tackle Post; Marzonie
Is In Uniform
Indications of a probable starting
lineup took a more tangible form
yesterday afternoon as the Wolver-
ine gridders went through their last
hard workout.
Only a light drill is scheduled for
today, dummy scrimmage on both the
offense and defense being planned for
the Varsity squad before they move
out. of town. The team will remain
cloistered until just before game time
Captain Matt Patanelli and Danny
Smick spent theentire practice ses-
sion at the flanking positions and
were deemed certain starters against
the Columbia Lions. Art Valpey, who
occupied the end post now held by
Smick, took a light workout, but was
still favoring his leg, and will prob-
ably see action, if at all, for only a
short time.
Luby Retains Position
Earl Luby was at right tackle again
where he has held the first call over
Forrest Jordan for the last three days.
Jordan was working out with the
second team yesterday, and seems
certain to see action.
On the other side of the line Don
Siegel held the tackle post that he
took over with the advent of Fred
Janke's shoulder injury which will
keep him from action until possibly
the last game of the season. Jim
Lincoln is his first replacement as
was indicated when he lined up at
that position on the second team.
George Marzonie again failed to
work out with the squad yesterday,
atlhough he was in uniform. His
leg has kept him on the sidelines
since Tuesday, and it isn't likely that
he will get in the Columbia game.
Dutch Vanderwater took his place at
right guard on the Varsity yesterday,
and will probably see the most action
Saturday. Ralph Heikkinen was
at the same position on the second
Jesse Garber was back at his posi-
tion at left guard and has recovered
from his spiked hand sufficiently to
start against Columbia. Jack Bren-
nan, who had the starting call in the
Michigan State game, will be the first
Starting Center Undecided
One of the two positions that are
causing Coach Kipke his greatest
headache is the center post where
Joe Rinaldi and John Jordan are
showing equal ability. Jordan worked
out with the Varsity during the
greater part of the week, but yester-
day it was Rinaldi who was passing
the ball from the line.
The fullback post is the other half
of the Kipke headache because of the
varying abilities of Tex Stanton and
Ced Sweet. Stanton is a quicker
starter than Sweet, but the Michigan
Mentor needs the veteran to take over
the punting duties when Bob Coop-
er isn't in the lineup.
A possible solution was indicated
by Coach Kipke, with the combina-
tion of Wally Hook and Sweet in the
backfield alternating with Cooper
and Stanton at the same positions.
Bill Barclay will probably be at quar-
ter and Smithers at half.
Track Squad May
Have Outside Drill
Weather permitting, the Michigan

track squad will have one of its
regular fall workouts this afternoon
on Ferry Field.
For the past few years it has been
the custom of Coach Hoyt to work
out the team as a unit. Although
there are no meets scheduled until'
the second semester, these practices
are held in order for the boys to
build up their endurance.
One more such -a practice will be
held a week from today before the
team is forced to go indoors. From
this period on the team will not prac-
tice until the time trials begin late
in the semester.
Although no definite conclusions
can be drawn from trials, as the boys
will run easily, Hoyt has his eye on
the freshmen who will bear a major
portion of the burden this season.
In the sprints Alan Smith, Roy Heath,
and Waldo Abbot will be fighting it
out for the honor of aiding Sam Stol-
ler capture new laurels. Competi-
tion is also keen in the 440 where
a wealth of material is apparently
present to aid Osgood, Birleson and

Fighting To Regain Regular Varsity Position

Fred Ziem is working overtime at practices these days in an attempt
to regain the guard position that he was forced to give up last season on
account of an injury. Although he played a few minutes in the In-
diana game this fall, Fred has yet to appear in the starting lineup.
He is not as big as the conventional guard, but like George Marzonie,
he is compact and boasts plenty of power on offense as well as defense.
Ziem hails from Pontiac, where he won three letters playing under
C. D. Welden.

Tankers Begin
Early SeasonI
Training Grind
Coach Mann Is Confident
Michigan Will Recapture
Conference Title
With members of the 1936-37 Var-
sity swimming squad already making
things boil at the Intramural pool,
Coach Matt Mann has ventured the
information that Michigan will again
dominate Big Ten and National swim-
ming circles this year. Michigan
will be seeking its eighth National
Collegiate title in 11 years.
The wealth of material available
this year more than bears out Mann's
contention that the Varsity will have
another great season. Most of last
year's stellar performers are back,
set for the conquest of another title
to add to the impressive list already
annexed by the natators. Ben Grady,
Jack Kasley, Frank Barnard, Tom
Haynie of last year's star freshman
squad, Fred Cody back after a year's
absence, Ed Kirar, Leo Tomski and
Bill Farnsworth are all expected to
win points in this season's meet.
The ineligibility jinx has some of
the members of the squad down at
present, but Mann expects that all
of his star performers will be ready
to compete when the second semester
starts. The swimming season does
not get under way with any big meets
until second semester anyhow, so the
entire team will be prepared to carry
the brunt of the season.
The freshman team this year will
in no way compare with last year's
aggregation. Coach Mann stated
that never before has such a group of
swimmers and divers come to Mich-
igan at one time, nor does he expect
to see another squad so studded with
stars as was the 1935 frosh team.
This year's yearlings will come far
from duplicating last year's frosh vic-
tory over the Varsity. The implica-
tion is not that ;there are not any
good freshman swimmers this year,
there are, but they are not in a
class with the swimmers of last year.
There are several good divers coming
up, however, who will be valuable as
replacements for the Varsity men
who will be lost in June.
Touch Football
opener Won By
Penthouse A. C.
Keeping the air filled with passes,
the Penthouse A.C. beat the Olympics
yesterday, 12-7 in the first touch-
football game of the season. The
battle was the start of the Intramural
1Department's Independent League
playoffs. Interest displayed this year
in this sport has shown itself to be
much greater than that of last year
as 22 teams are entered compared
to the previous season's 16.
Besides their aerial attack the
Penthouse showed considerable speed
and shiftiness which was due in some
extent to their part time occupation.
l They are all waiters. With a minute
to play in the third quarter Frank
Vihtelic, Pent end, intercepted a pass
from Johnny Mair intended for
Harry O'Connell and scored easily.
In the fourth period A. Shnurman
passed to B. Corelitz who again tallied
for the A.C. Neither of the points
after touchdown were made. The
Olympics put on a rally in the fourth
quarter when Mair threw to O'Connell
who raced 65 yards to a touchdown.

O'Connell then converted.
In the only other opening football
game the Buckeye Foresters shut out
the Bulldogs 6-0 as T. E. Bercaw
scored the only touchdown.
Pi Lambda Phi trounced Beta
Theta Pi 15-3 to capture the cham-
pionship of its respective league in
Interfraternity speedball. The only
other league winner to date is Theta
Chi. Phi Gamma Delta beat Sigma

Identification Needed
For Home Grid Games
Students are again reminded that
it will be necessary to show their
identification cards to gain admit-
tance to the Columbia game and all
remaining home football games this
season. Cards must be shown at the
entrance gates.
There will be no inconvenience to
students because there will be a sep-
arate gate for them at each section
of the gates. The Board in Control
of Athletics have requested that this
rule be followed and will appreciate
the students' cooperation.
Weber Claims
Frosh Inferior
To Last Year
Good Material Is Not As
Abundant; Kodros And
Trosko Outstanding
The Freshmen football squad, with
almost four weeks of practice behind
them, is gradually being classified
and selected by Coach Wally Weber
with the result that several yearlings
of promise have come to the front.
"Good material this year," stated
Coach Weber, "is not nearly as abun-
dant as on last year's squad." On
the whole the backfield material is
unimpressive, a good line plunger and
passer being noticeably absent. Coach
Weber emphasized, however, that 'he
still has not 'looked the squad over
thoroughly, and until he has done so
will reserve any opinion as to how
much it will contribute to the Varsity
next year.
Fundamentals Important

Two outstanding exponents of the
art of punt and pass will come in
contact when the Wolverines collide
with Lou Little's Columbia Lions
Saturday, and statistics show that
in the long run Michigan may be
forced to fall back on its running
For in Sid Luckman and Hubert
Schulze, Little has a passer and a
punter that are giving all other grid-
ders in the country a run for their
money on the statistics books.
In three games to date, Maine,
Army, and Virginia Military Insti-
tute, Luckman, sophomore quarter-
back of the Lions, has thrown 44
passes for a .500 batting average,
completing 22 for a net gain from
passing of 377 yards, with only two
interceptions. Johnny Siegal and
Schulze are his favorite targets.
No Passes Against Army
Luckman was too busy running
with the ball against Maine to score
aerial touchdowns in the 34-0 victory,
but against Army he threw one to
Schulze for a score and ran the ball
across another time for a touch-
down, missing by inches two other
end-zone passes to the punting left
1 end that would have won the game
for Columbia.
Against V.M.I. he had his best day
of the season, completing 11 out of
18 for 166 yards. Bob Taylor and
SSiegalwere on the receiving end of
scoring passes, with Johnny Hu-
dasky catching two others for four
of the six Columbia touchdowns.
At the punting end, Schulze kicked
ten times in the Maine and Army
games to average 52%/2 yards from
the point the ball was kicked, with a
total of 37 yards in punt returns
for his opponents. This makes about
42 yards per kick in Michigan lan-
guage, measuring them from the line
of scrimmage. It's hardly fair tc
count the V.M.I. statistics, however
inasmuch as Schulze was injured
early in the game, and his under-
study's work dragged the average
down to 251/2 yards for the after-
, Michigan Punting Good
Against this Michigan can offer
averages of 35/2 yards against State;
40 yards against Indiana and 3(
yards against Minnesota for the punt-
ing of Bob Cooper and Ced Sweet
with opponents' returns averaging
well over 10 yards.
In passing, the combined total tc
date for the efforts of Bob Cooper

Johnny Smithers, Stark Ritchie and
Bob Campbell shows 44 passes at-
tempted, six completed, and four in-
tercepted, for a total gain of 60 yards
from passes.
There is an encouraging note, how-
ever, first inthe fact that Johnny
Smithers has apparently found his
passing eye, and secondly in the fact
that Columbia's pass defense in not-
ably weak. Army scored two touch-
downs on passes, and placed them-
selves in scoring position for the
other two by areial attack.
A New York Times write-up of the
Army game says:
The Ends Have It
"Two forward passes that either
resulted in Cadet touchdowns or set

the state for them were on



Woody Stromberg


Kobes, one six feet one inch tall and
the other six feet three. Oscar Bo-
nom, Lion fullback, was on top of
each of them, but the Cadets were
so much taller that the five foot nine
inch Lion that nothing he could do
-including the riding of the two of
them pick-a-back-was able to stop
the giants from snaring the tosses."
Moral: Smick is 6 feet, 4 inches,
Gedeon, 6 feet 3 inches; Valpey 6 feet,
21/2 inches; and Patanelli, the shrimp
is only 6 feet 1 inch.
In addition, in Columbia's three
games to date, their opponents have
tossed 45 passes for 19 completions
and 291 yards, Army completing 11
out of 18.
A contest of punt and pass-and
the loser hasn't got a prayer!
Coach Matt Mann has issued a
call to all members of the fresh-
man swimming squad to meet at
the Intramural pool next Tues-
day sharply at 5 p.m. All fresh-
man swimmers take notice as the
meeting is very important.

Luckman Supplies Pass And
Schulze Punts For Columbia

HAVING picked 19 winners withI
but four losers in his debut as a
football prognosticator last week-end
-and having stuck out his chest
about it all week-Freddie De Lano
has the nerve to think that he may
be as lucky in his second try today.
And the funny part of it is, I think he
will be.

CASTING our gaze about the na-
tional grid stage and forgetting
for the moment that we'll have a
great battle Saturday afternoon in
our own back yard when the Co-
lumbia Lion and Michigan Wolverine
start mixing it, we find that Amer-
ica's several million football fans will
be treated this week-end to more out-
standing games than on any one
day since the curtain went up on the
1936 season.
We hesitate predicting the victor
of the local skirmish, believing that
the weather will have much to do
with the outcome. However, if it's
a fighting heart that is needed to
win, it will be Michigan on the long
end of the score Saturday. In Luck-
man and Schulze Columbia will have
plenty of passing and punting ability,
but even so we think Michigan has
something besides a prayer left to
Probably the best battle on the
schedule will be the clash between
Purdue's inspired and powerful eleven
and Minnesota up at Minneapolis.
The Gophers are favored to stretch
their string of victories to the record-
breaking number of 21, but iot until
after they've been in a real fight.
It is even possible that the Boiler-
makers will upset the dope, but we'll
string along with the champion and
name Minnesota by a touchdown.
N ORTHWESTERN, fresh from its
startling victory over Ohio State,
faces a mediocre Illinois eleven at Ur-
bana. The Illini tied Iowa last week
but haven't the power to stop the
Wildcats. We'll also take Ohio State
over Indiana despite the fact that
the Hoosiers dropped their encounter
with Nebraska by only four points.
The Buckeyes have lost two in a
row and should click this week. If
not, we'll say goodbye Schmidt and
prepare for a big celebration in Co-
lumbus the night of Nov. 21. Three
Big Ten elevens, Wisconsin, Chicago
and Iowa are idle this week.
An undefeated Notre Dame power-
house will risk its record against Pitt
and while most fans will disagree
with this, we'll lay it on the Irish to
win. Too many times have we
watched Notre Dame defeat a sup-
posedly better team to concede any
team a victory over them; and as
we remember seeing Marty Peters'
last minute field goal give the Irish
the decision over the Panthers in

1935, 9-6, we'll back them again Sat-'
Elsewhere in the Mid-West we
name Nebraska over Oklahoma, Kan-
sas State over Kansas and, whether
you like it or not, Marquette over
Michigan State. The last affair will
be no mild tussle, but rather a tooth
and nail struggle, that could easily
go either way. However, we've yet
to be shown where the Spartans are
better than they were a year ago
when Marquette won 13-7 and we're
looking for practically the same score
this year.
* * *
IN THE EAST Fordham will repel
the trans-continental invasion of
St. Mary's in probably the best at-
traction the seaboard has to offer.
It will also be Pennsylvania overj
Brown and Holy Cross to top Car-
negie Tech by a slight margin. Cor-
nell will outscore Penn State, while
Dartmouth will trim Harvard and
Princeton sinks the Navy.
The Tulane-North Carolina and;
Duke-Tennessee tilts headline the.
South's offerings and we'll take the
first named in both cases. L.S.U.
will top Arkansas, Texas A. and M. is
our choice over Baylor, Kentucky will
trim Florida, Auburn should win over
Georgia, Georgia Tech is a few points
better than Vanderbilt and Rice is
better than Texas.
The West-Coast presents four out-
standing games, the best of which,
will be Washington-California's fight
for possible Rose Bowl honors. On
the basis of Washington's easy tri-
umph over U.C.L.A. while the latter
upset the Bears last week we'll give
the call to the Huskies. We also pick
Southern California over Stanford,
U.C.L.A. against Oregon State and
Washington State to win from Ore-
Our two dark horses for the day
are Redlands to beat Pomona and
Milligan to gallantly triumph over
the more powerful forces of Carson-
And that's that. Last week we hit
.826; Saturday it may be .268.

Two factors are considered of prime
importance in selecting the team,
blocking andi tackling ability. A
player who is lacking in either of
these two departments stands little
chance of landing a berth on the
Running through the various posi-
tions we find promising men for every
berth. At the ends, Joe Slewitsky,
of Saginaw and Joe Rogers of Royal
Oak have shown up best thus far.
The former is a good pass receiver
and blocker, while the latter was all-
state last year in his position.
Among the tackles Donald Savilla
husky 200-pounder from Gallager
W. Va., has shown most promise
Standing well over six feet Savilla
played bang-up ball until disabled
by a knee injury. Ken Steen, a very
fast tackle from New Rochelle, N.Y.
and Bill Smith of San Antonio, Tex.
are other impressive candidates for
this, position.. The latter's father
played in the line for Michigan dur-
ing the early part of the century.
Kodros Is Outstanding
Herman Ulewitch, Cleveland, O.
and Jack Weiner of Chicago, Ill., are
the best of some mediocre guard ma-
terial. The best lineman to put in
an appearance is Archie Kodros
husky center from Alton, Ill., whc
seems destined to go places in Mich-
igan football. Another likely looking
center is Bill Linsz, Cleveland, O.
Coach Weber considers Fred Tros-
ko, of Flint, Mich., a former All-State
star, playing with the Physical Ed-
ucation Freshman the best back or
the squad. Other good backfield
men are Jack Kinsey, Plymouth, a
good punter; Don Hendricks, Bentor
Harbor, a fair passer and good
blocker; Joe Goldberg, a fine de-
fensive back from Middletown, N.Y.;
Henry Postoway, Dearborn and stocky
Hercules Rhinda, who, despite his
size, has been setting the big fel-
lows down hard all year.
