by Varsity Flanker


Faced with the task of protecting
an unbeaten intersectional record
dating back to 1926, Coach Harry
Kipke gave his squad some new plays
to work on during yesterday's drill
for Saturday's Pennsylvania game in
an effort to develop a varied running
attack featuring laterals which will*
be combined with a vastly improved
passing offense. In order to safe-
guard from further injuries, Coach
Kipke said that he will continue his
plan of light workouts. ,
Cooper Dons Uniform.
Although unable to take part in the
practice session, Bob Cooper donned
a uniform for the first time since
his injury last Wednesday and jogged
around the field. Although not in
uniform another injured Wolverine,
Fred Janke watched the drill from
the sidelines. Janke suffered a bad
shoulder injury in the Minnesota
game which forced him out of com-
petition for the rest of the season.(
With Johnny Smithers and Wally
Hook sharing the passing duties and
Stark Ritchie doing most of the ball
carrying, the Varsity showed plenty
of spirit and snap in running through
the new plays. Danny Smick put on
a fine exhibition of pass receiving
when he snagged several of Smith-
ers' long heaves for fine catches.t
Stress Speedi
Stressing speed and ball handling,
the backs managed to toss the ball
around with plenty of zip on the va-
rious deceptive lateral formations.
The Varsity lineup was the same as
yesterday's with Capt. Matt Patanelli
and Smick, ends, Ed Greenwald and
Jim Lincoln at the tackle positions,
Fred Ziem and Jesse Garber, guards
and Joe Rinaldi, center. In the back-
field Bill Barclay was at quarter with
Ritchie and Smithers, halves and Ced
Sweet, fullback. Hook alternated with
Ritchie at the running halfback post.
Don Siegel, regular right tackle,
was again kept out of the drill to
give his injured right knee more
chance to heal. Elmer Gedeon, re-
serve end, did not take part in the
practice session due to an old stom-
ach ailment. However, George Mar-
zonie, guard, again returned to ac-
tive work after being hampered by
a bruised hip.
Large Alumni
Group To See
Quaker Game
When Michigan plays at Pennsyl-
vania this Saturday for the first time
since 1917 they will have as support-
ers not only the Band and those stu-
dents who follow the team on trips
but also alumni from nearly all the
eastern Atlantic states.
Friday evening, according to T.
Hawley Tapping, alumni secretary,
the Alumni Association of Philadel-
phia is staging a reunion banquet at
the Hotel Benjamin Franklin at
which from 200 to 300 prominent
alumni are expected to attend. This
group will include former Michigan

Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Vir-
ginia, Michigan, and other states.
Speakers at the banquet will be
Athletic Director Fielding H. Yost,
Coach Harry G. Kipke, President
Emory J. Hyde of the Association, Ar-
thur W. Kohler and Tapping. Be- v
tween speeches the Varsity band will
This banquet makes the first one

minence since 1926 when one of the

Wildcats' Victory Paces Underdogs

In this season of startling grid up-
sets where so many top-notch teams
have been beaten that there is hardly
a contender left for the honor of
carrying the colors of the East against
the West in the Rose Bowl game, one
team - Minnesota - had remained
invincible and last Saturday Coach
Benny Bierman's Gopher powerhouse
went the way of all the great teams
and lost to Northwestern. 6-0.
For 21 straight games, the Norse-
men from Minnesota dominated the
gridiron world and were odds on fa-
vorites to repeat as national cham-
pions this year despite all the pessi-
mistic predictions made by Coach
Bierman. Just a week ago, the
Gophers had silenced their critics by
romping over Purdue, touted 'as one
of the strongest teams in the Big Ten.
by an overwhelming 33-0 score.
Toth Comes Through
But Coach Lynn Waldorf and his
Wildcats refused to be overawed by
Gopher power and Steve Toth

touchdown that ended Minnesota's
domination of the nation's football
and which virtually assured North-
western of the Big Ten championship

the Tigers, who were rated as 10-to-1
favorites, by a 14-14 score.
Yale's hopes for an unbeaten season
were also shattered Saturday when
Dartmouth 'doggedly protected an;

early lead to emerge on the long end
of an 11-7 count before a crowd of
60,000 partisan rooters.

Pingel, scored both touchdowns, one
on a pass from Pingel to Lenhardt
and the other on another pass from
Pingel to Nelson.
Colgate, after absorbing shellack-
ings from Duke and Tulane, did an
about-face Saturday and knocked a
greatly favored Army team from the
ranks of the nation's unbeaten and
untied elevens. Army started out well
and led 7-0 at the half but the in-
spired Red Raiders were not to be
denied and pushed over two scores in
the second half to win 14-7.
